BRIEFS

Suwannee's First
Carjacking?

The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office were seeking a 53
year old man after a red
Ford Ranger was carjacked
near Munden Creek in
Suwannee after a physical
altercation on Thursday
evening at 362 SE 371 Street.
The suspect, Edward J.
Hatcher, was said to be a
white male with glasses and
spotted in the truck on CR
349 going towards Old Town
during the pursuit.



That's why there

are no seat belts

on the hood...

A 1989 Ford driven by Mark
Stevens, 35, hit a fence at
165 NE 470th Avenue on
Sunday evening. A "passen-
ger," Kevin R. Folson, 29, of
Cross City was "riding on
the hood" when the car hit
the fence and Folsom fell
off, suffering minor injuries
that sent him to the hospi-
tal. Stevens fled the scene
with another passenger,
Nathan Edmonds, 20.

However, the owner of the
fence didn't let them get
away and followed the car
until it ran off the road at
the intersection of NE 478th
Avenue and NE 580th Street,
and then held the two men
until law enforcement ar-
rived on the scene.

The driver, Mark Stevens,
was charged with Careless
Driving, Leaving the Scene
and DUI. Apparently the
passenger on the hood es-
caped without charges.
None of the men in the car
(or on top of the car) were
wearing seat belts accord-
ing to the FHP report.


-TWo arrested for propane theft


Shortly before 8:00pm on
July 29, 2010, the Sheriff's
Office received a call about
a burglary taking place at
Plantation Gas on SE 351,
just south of Cross City.

When deputies and Cross
City Police arrived, they
met with the Plant Manager
who noticed that one
propane cylinder was miss-
ing. Officers were able to
obtain a vehicle description
from witnesses and a short.
time later while patrolling,
Officer Zach Clark noticed a
vehicle matching that de-
scription turn off of C.R,
351 into a wooded area.
Clark was able to make a
traffic stop on the vehicle
and noticed a propane cylin-
der inthe back of the vehi-
cle. Clark identified the oc-
cupants as Benjamin Bre-
land and David Smith.


Brelana Smith


Deputies then arrived to
meet with Clark and com-
plete their investigation
into the burglary and theft.

Upon completion of the in-
vestigation, Benjamin Bre-
land, 38 years of age and
David Smith, 35 years of


age, both of Cross City, were
arrested.

Breland was charged with
Burglary, Grand Theft and
Driving on a Suspended Li-,
cense. Smith was charged
with Burglary and Grand
Theft.


SWRMD to allow hunting

Log Landing, Steinhatchee Springs & Mallory Swamp included


Hunting will soon begin on
nearly 100,000 acres of
Suwannee River Water'
Management District-owned
lands. Deer, hog, turkey and
small game hunting is avail-
able on limited days from
September-March.

Hunting on these lands is
managed by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission as Wildlife
Management Areas
(WMAs).

The following is a list of ar-
eas available for hunting:

* Big Shoals, eastern
Hamilton County

counties
S Aucilla, eastern Jef-
ferson and western Taylor
counties
* Log Landing, east-
ern Dixie County
S Devil's Hammock,
southern Levy County
Santa Fe Swamp,
eastern Bradford County

Holton Creek is a mobility
impaired hunting area. It is
closed to the public during
hunt dates, except to per-
sons hiking the Florida
Trail.


Persons using WMAs are re-
quired to have appropriate
licenses, permits and
stamps.

Additionally, new regula-
tions apply to some areas
beginning this season.

New study says Dixie's Library is money well spent


A study recently released by
the Haas Center for Busi-
ness Research and Econom-
ic Development, University
of West Florida, reveals
public libraries return $8.32
in value for every tax dollar
received.

Key findings of the study
entitled Taxpayer Return on
Investment in Florida Pub-
lic Libraries (2010) docu-
ment thatFlorida libraries
contribute significantly to
the Florida economy. Eco-
nomic benefits extend t6 job
creation, generation of
Gross Regional Product, and
personal income. Specifical-
ly:

For every $3,491 spent
on public libraries from
public funding sources in
Florida, one job (in the econ-


omy, not just in libraries) is
created.

For every dollar of
public support spent on pub-
lic libraries in Florida,
Gross Regional Product (the
value of all goods and ser-
vices produced in the state)
increases by $10.57.

For every dollar of
public support spent on pub-
lic libraries in Florida, in-
come (wages) increases by
$22.97.

When visiting their li-
braries, public library users
generate "halo" spending.
This is the result of combin-
ing trips to libraries with
other activities such as


shopping, eating at restau-
rants, visiting a coffee shop,
etc. Spending by library
users visiting other places
during their trips averages
$47.90.

Public library users agree
the local public library is an
essential service to the com-
munity. In fact, Florida li-
brary users most desire a
public library for their
street, as. compared to a po-
lice station, park, job center
or elementary school.
The study was funded under
the provisions of the Li-
brary Services and Technol-
ogy Act, from the Institute
of Museum and Library Ser-
vices.


Local Scouts Receive

Prestigious Award


Ashley Kimbrell, Kelsey Barber, Libby Sheffield, Nadia
Bailey, Logan Beck, Sarah Hurst & Sidney Beck


Cadette Girl Scout Troop
582 of Chiefland has re-,
ceived the highest award
achievable to Cadette
Scouts. On May 8th, Nadia
Bailey, Kelsey Barber, Lo-
gan Beck, Sydney Beck,
Sarah Hurst, Ashley Kim-
brell, and Libby Sheffield all
received their Girl Scouts
Silver Award on board the
Carnival Sensation at the
Captain's dinner. The Silver
Award involves hours of
planning service projects,
performing interest project
badge work and facilitating
community service.

The girls started "Operation
Give Back" in 2008 as they
began working on their Sil-
ver Award. The raised funds
have been used to benefit
U.S. soldiers, hospice pa-
tients, nursing home resi-
dents, Children of Shands
Cancer Center and the St.
Francis House of
Gainesville.

Troop 582 has sent more
than 15 care packages to lo-
cal soldiers serving in Iraq
and overseas. Included in
these packages were candy,
food, toiletries and cookies.
A total of 450 boxes have
beep sent out to troops dur-
ing the past two years from
Troop 582 via Alachua
County Support Group.


Another part of "Operation
Give Back" included visits
to local nursing homes. The
girls made more than 250
Christmas ornaments and
cards during the past two
years. These gifts were de-
livered to each of the resi-
dents at the Tri-County
Nursing Home to Heaven
Hospice.

The girls also donated
stuffed bears from the
Gainesville Build-A-Bear
Corporation to the children
in the Cancer Center of
Shands Memorial Hospital.
Money earned by the girls
from selling Girl Scout
Cookies was used to build
the bears. The girls includ-
ed messages of hope with
each bear they donated.

Cadette Girl Scout Troop
582 spent serval troop meet-
ings and the Veterans Day
holiday sewing assembling
handmade blankets and pil-
lows. The troop donated
eighteen full-size blankets
and thirty-five pillows of
various sizes to the St.
Francis House of'
Gainesville. Along with
these hand-made items, the
girls had a coat drive and
collected toiletries and non-
perishable items for the
shelter, also.

Adios...Oh, wait a minute!

Arizona just thought they had a problem with illegal aliens.
After passing a law that was supposed to empower state and
local law enforcement to apprehend persons in this country
illegally, the heavy hand of the federal judiciary showed up
on the scene, and now the welcome mat is out again, this
time conferring quasi-legal status, courtesy of our benight-
ed federal government.

Arizona's law SB 1070, signed by Governor Jan Brewer last
April, was to take effect on Thursday, July 29, and it did.
Sort of. On Wednesday, July 28, US District Judge Susan.
Bolton (a Clinton appointee) agreed with Attorney General
Eric Holder (an Obama appointee) that Arizona did not
have a right to enforce federal laws. However, Bolton did al-
low certain provisions of the law to go into effect, just not
the ones enabling police to question people about their eli-
gibility to be in this country. By what logic this distinction
was made is anybody's guess. In any event, Governor Brew-
er has vowed to contest this ruling all the way to the
Supreme Court, a process which could take months or even
years.

By mid-July, we were getting reports of illegals packing
their ponchos and heading back to Mexico by the truck
load. They knew that before long they could be asked to ver-
ify their immigration status if they were questioned by po-
lice for any reason, and would be subject to being sent back
across the border. Many had criminal records and/or out-
standing arrest warrants and were getting out while the
getting was good.

Doggone! That new law was working even better than any-
one had hoped. The illegals were bailing out even before it
went into effect! But now that the heat's off, they'll be com-
ing back and bringing some of their amigos with them.
Welcome to government of the people by the anointed and
for politicians who will stop at nothing to court the favor of
*a potential voting bloc.

I'm certainly not apologizing for the Bush administration's
lackluster performance in dealing with the problem of ille-
gal aliens invading our turf, but at least we got started
building a border fence.

Unfortunately, it was not enough border fence to have a sig-
nificant impact on the significant influx of persons illegal-
ly crossing the border. However, if the fence project had
been pursued as originally designed, it could be making a
difference by now. And if the Border Patrol had been given
the personnel and equipment they needed, and if the Na-
tional Guard troops sent there had been sufficient in num-
ber and allowed to do something besides observe, and if the
federal government had gotten serious about cracking
down on employers who hired illegals, we could be well on
our way to getting the situation turned around by now. And
of course, if ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforce-
ment) had been doing its job there wouldn't have been any
need for Arizona to pass SB 1070 in the first place.

The problem is, the Obama administration doesn't want the
problem solved. Reason for its opposition to Arizona's law?
It would get in the way of "comprehensive immigration re-
form." And do you know what "comprehensive immigra-
tion reform" would be? How about making everyone in this
country illegally a citizen? How about an "open borders"
policy that would eliminate the need for illegals to wade
across the Rio Grande and trek across miles of barren
wasteland. Just buy a bus ticket, no papers required. Well,
at least it would cut down on the trash the wetbacks cur-
rently leave on the property they cross on the way to the
nearest welfare office.

Why would anyone in government want this? The simple
fact that illegals who get on a fast track to citizenship will
vote, and they will vote for the politicians and the political
party that make it possible for them to become citizens by
breaking the law.

Now, aren't you glad you voted for "hope and change" in
2008? And how come you're not still displaying that bumper
sticker?

Anyway, my angora rabbits had babies on umnsc m
Thursday This was fun, and yet, traumatic, of
course, because that's the way my life goes. She
had six little hairless rat-looking things, and
well, we have two left. I'll spare you the details,
but I will say part of the story involves a small unnoticed
gap in the cage and a certain fuzzy puppy who got really
sick to his stomach while we were at the movies.:(

In a desperate, and as it turns out, fruitless search for some
important and yet non-depressing topic to harangue you .
about with this week, I pulled out the big guns. I came out-
side to my little benches in the back yard and turned all of
the chickens, ducks and geese loose to wander about and
nibble. Then I sat back in the sweltering morning heat with
my overly sugared cup of coffee, opened the laptop and wait-
ed for inspirational lightning to strike. Well, yeah, I'm still
waiting. Sorry.

The chickens like wandering around the yard, now that
they're big enough not to be mistaken as dinner by the cats.
The ducks like it too, waddling around making wackk wack
wack" noises and looking for tasty leaves to munch on. I
picked up the peking ducks totally on impulse at Tractor

CORRECTION:

Last week's press release
from FDLE about the 18peo-
ple who were arrested in
Steinhatchee identified
Amanda Jones. This was in-
correct. The release should
have read 'Amanda James."
FDLE released the wrong
name statewide. Amanda

Supply one day I never really wanted ducks; it's not like I'd
ever eat them or anything, and I can't imagine what I would
do with duck eggs. They were just...cute. I have a real weak-
ness for cute. So the guy at Tractor Supply sort of sighed
knowingly, and put them in a little cardboard box while the
kids jumped up and down picking out their favorites and we
brought them home.

They're not cute now. They're big, and white, and loud, and
sort of obnoxious. They have a swimming pool that they
adore, but they also insist on pooping in it, so we have to
clean it almost every day Grown-up ducks are messy, but
they're fun to watch.

Geese, though....geese are awesome. I love my geese, even
though they're over there right now eating
bilr that supplies the leaves off of my seedless Daytona grape
wng. These, by vines. Stop that! Bad goose! No, nibbling on

fair and accurate be mean, and would chase us or attack the

and feeling wrong. Geese are "people." They really are.

-- Amrose Berce They have distinct personalities, a gentle
dignity, and they bond with humans. If I
get up from this bench, Fred and Ethel will
follow me across the yard. If they get separated from each
other, they totally freak out. I can't imagine that I will ever
be able to eat a roasted Christmas goose, ever again. Which
is OK with me, I'm a turkey girl. I'm fine with eating
turkeys since one sneaked up behind me when I was mea-
suring a house and spurred my calf all bloody, right through
my jeans. Oh, yeah, I can eat turkey all day long.

Fred and Ethel aren't afraid of the fuzzy rabbit-munching
puppy If he gets up from his seat under my bench, or if he
gets to close to them, they make this cat-like hissing noise
and stick their long skinny tongues out at him. (Yes, geese
have tongues. I didn't know that, either.) He knows he'd bet-
ter sit back down in a hurry Geese are intimidating that
way.

I'm sweaty and out of coffee and surely you're tired of read-
ing about my silly livestock, so I'll leave you for this week.
Make it a good one!

Dear Mr. and/or Mrs. Caretaker of
the Cross City Cemetery:

Is it possible for you to take
better care of the residents be-
fore they all get up and leave,
or get up and start picketing
City Hall?

I can barely find my husband's
head stone, the grass and
weeds have grown so high. I
visit my husband quite regu-
larly and the grass has not
been mowed in at least a
month and a half.

I am enclosing photos to show
how things have gotten out of
Sand.

Shame on you,
Brtis (Bea) Gregory

Ms. Bea: I believe they mowed
the cemetery this morning.--ed


Letter to the Editor.


Small coastal communi-
ties have been severely injured by
the downturn in our economy and
our communities in Dixie and Tay-
lor Counties are no different. Many
people in those communities who re-
lied on construction related jobs are
finding themselves out of work or
limited in what they can do to earn a
living.
The way I see it, the area
needs incentives and assistance to
stimulate the local economy What
we don't need are federal regulations
that are "overboard" in their re-
quirements and permits and wind
up drowning the landowner in a sea
of red tape.
Case in point; We pur-
chased property in Dixie County
along the Steinhatchee River in the
community of Jena with the inten-
tions of hiring local craftsmen, la-
borers and contractors to build
"built to code homes" along the
shoreline. What we want to do is not
out of the ordinary and is common-
place throughout Florida's coastal
communities.
County and State officials
who provide permitting services for
this project have been helpful in pro-
viding assistance. In other words,
they understand the right of a per-
son to develop and use privately
owned property within the guide-
lines of county, state and federal
statutes. We have no problems with
meeting their rules and regulations.
They are helpful and provide assis-
tance. We are, however, disturbed by
the actions of federal agencies such
as the Corps of Engineers/EPA in
their seemingly arbitrary interpreta-
tion of their rules and regulations.
We purchased property
that was originally proposed as a
large-scale high rise condominium
project. The project was moving
through the governmental process of
permitting when the owners decided
not to go forward with construction
and placed the real estate (a total of
11 useable lots) on the market. We
purchased the property and wanted
to use the property for constructing
private residences according local


density guidelines and the Dixie
County, state approved comprehen-
sive plan.... So far, so, good.
Now for the problem..!
We would like to build a rip-rap sea;
wall along the river, dredge a small
portion of a man-made canal (Tar-
pon Canal) that has been on the
property for more than 30 years and
build a Seawall and small private
boat ramp on the canal (not on the
river).
The purpose of the rip-
rap seawall (native rock) was to sta-
bilize any erosion possibilities along
the river bank. Up and down the
Steinhatchee River, property owners
have used this same type method of
seawall construction with proven
erosion control and no danger to
aquatic grasses pr shoreline, Fur-
thermore, it creates additional habi-
tat for small crustaceans and juve-
nile fish. We did not purchase this
property to destroy the environment.
We understand how to take care of
and treat the environment with re-
spect. We want to use the property
for wholesome recreation.
What we have encoun-
tered in dealing with the Army
Corps of Engineer/EPA to obtain
permits for the aforementioned work
is nothing short of governmental ha-
rassment and an unwillingness on
their part to work with us to resolve
the situation in a timely fashion. We
have been told, in essence, "we are
the U.S. Government and we aren't
on any time schedule to resolve
problems."
We began working the
area by strategically placing, per
DEP, silt fence in appropriate areas
to reduce chance of runoff into wet-
land areas. We brought in fill in ap-
propriate areas and an inspection by
the Florida DEP indicated that no
fill was placed in wetlands and that
photographs and a site visit to the
property indicated that work was
done correctly A site visit by the
Suwannee River Water Management
District also confirmed and indicat-
ed that no wetlands were filled in at
the property As we brought in fill,
an anonymous contact was made
with the Army Corps of Engineers
stating, "Developers are filling in the


marsh and estuaries....in order to
build upon. They have done this in
the past and not got caught. They
are doing right now on the Jena side
of the river just inside the mouth to
the ocean. They are filling in the
marsh grass areas. Additionally,
when they do somehow get a permit
from the local corrupt officials they
never replace any of the marshes
elsewhere."
Since that time, we have
completed the work necessary to
make the property useable including
re-installing a dock that had floated
away from the property gangway
during a storm. The existing dock,
according to government records,
was installed sometime between 1986
and 2005, long before we ever took
possession of the property Using
old photographs and applying vari-
ous scaling methods, it was deter-
mined that we installed a dock larg-
er than the original. We readily
agree that the dock is larger and
simply seek approval for the replace-
ment sized dock.
Enter the Army Corps of
Engineers/EPA... They have writ-
ten us letters, threatening fines and
a cease and desist order if any fur-
ther work is done on the property
They have also deemed portions of
our uplands work as being done in a
wetlands area and have stopped our
process under these threats of big
government intervention,
We have had to enlist the
expensive services of environmental
professionals to help argue our case
before the Corps, but as of late, they
are not forthcoming in working with
us to resolve the situation.
Our government officials
enjoy applying red tape to our lives
and to the development of private
land, all the while, people needing to
work are suffering from unemploy-
ment. When is big government go-
ing to understand that they work for
us and should help the American
people. Let your voice be heard at
the ballot box and elect politicians
who understand the value of private
enterprise. Private enterprise cre-
ates jobs.

S, ^ so if you're pressed for time, you might want
to go ahead and read the jail log or something
more interesting than me. If you have time to kill, be pre-

unending Orwellian nightmare that the country seems to be

isn't it? I think so, too.

It's been a good week around my house. I bought a badly-

Outdoors & Law


August 2010
What a country! Where
else in the world would you
expect the top stories of the
day to be "Lindsey L. actu-
ally spends a night in a jail
cell", the hype of a "poten-
tial" hurricane that
drenched the Louisiana
coastline with about half an
inch of rain and "devastat-
ing winds" of 40 mph
(wow), and the coverage of
an ex presidents daughters
wedding used as a political
ad. Seriously, the wanna be
impressionist guy from
"America's got Talent" was
more exciting to watch.
Since none of the above ac-
tivities held my attention, I
decided to use my time to
review articles I have writ-
ten over the past several
years for the month of Au-
gust. (I now must admit:
August, with it's heat waves
and humidity is also not ex-
citing!) The monthly gar-
dening challenges remain:
extreme heat (some records
were already set this year);
sporadic showers making
one to guess whether your
house and garden was
blessed with a shower while
you were at the supermar-
ket; insect invasions and as-
sorted fungus and blights
that have shown their ugly
faces while you were soak-
ing up the AC on the couch.

Most questions asked of me
lately have been related to
insect pests. Insects are a
part of the complex process
of nature. You need to 'de-
.cide what your own toler-
ance level is and where you
need to step up the game
and get them under control.
Personally, I have a low tol-
erance with ants and roach-
es of all sizes. Home reme-
dies like mixing boraxo or
boric acid with flour and
onions will keep the roaches
under thumb. Likewise,
regular laundry soap pow-
der spread along the base of
your home's foundation and
then lightly sprinkled in
with water discourages the
creepy crawlies to climb up


into your house. Sevin dust
also does the job! Just this
week I also learned of an-
other easy method to end a
nest (mound) of fire ants:
simply pour a bottle of club
soda on top of the mound.
The oxygen will be removed
and the queen will suffo-
cate. As far as dealing with
fungus goes, avoid watering
directly onto the leaves of
sensitive plants like toma-
toes, peppers, roses and hy-
drangeas. Watering lightly
at the base of the plants to
keep them moist and not
soaked also helps.

August is also a good
month for trimming and
shaping hedges and some
shrubs. An easy rule of
thumb to remember is nev-
er trim any more than about
one third of the branches at
one time. That way the
shrub will not stress out
and will rebound thicker
and fuller with new branch-
es.

The last bit of advice I
would like to share'is to
keep hydrated; both you and
your plants. Be cautious
and drink plenty of good ole
"sky juice" or some health
drink that will replenish
your loss of electrolytes.
Avoid carbonated beverages
and other drinks that are
high in caffeine. It doesn't
get any better than sitting
in the porch rocker, seeing a
fluttering swallow-tail but-
terfly land on a purple
heather, hear a flitting ruby
throat-ed hummingbird ex-
tract nectar from a bloom-
ing Mexican fire bush and
watching 2 baby Carolina
wrens hopping in the grass
as their mom gives them fly-
ing lessons for their very
first solo flight.

May your August days be
full of positive experiences
as you enjoy your garden
despite what the thermome-
ter reads!

God bless,

Iquring the heat wave of the
summer the Levy County
Horse Club takes a break on
our trail blazing rides. We find
other activities to do together.
Just recently we found our-
selves in Ocala for the movie
premier of John Travolta's
"Grease". Ocala is home to,
John Travolta where he has a
huge fan base.

It seemed every one was really
into this movie. As I stood in
line with my buddies in my
jeans, bobby socks and a scarf
tied just so around my neck, I
was seeing a lot of "pink
ladies" really serious about
this movie. Some ladies were
even sporting "pink wigs" ...at
least I think they were wigs.
Ah, the poodle skirts; sweaters
and oxfords were surrounding
me. Made me wish I had got
my poodle skirt from the closet
or at' the very least my "pink"
jacket. However, it's pretty
hard to think about a jacket
during a heat wave.

The girls in our club all dis-
cussed our attire before we
headed off to Ocala, naturally.
We did dress in the spirit of
the movie but we really didn't
give thoughts of pink ladies in
our discussion. Who knew? If
you recall, the Pink Ladies
were the "bad" girls of the high
school in the movie.

the Thursday night showing. I If you're a youngster and
honestly did not expect him already hunt, I suggest you go
both nights, but to hear that he'd paid for all the pop corn,
candy and drinks for us that evening .:.. wow! If you've
been to a movie lately you know what I'm talking about. Of
course there were lots of free posters of John and Olivia
Newton-John being given out. I took a few of those.

I felt as though I was back in time on a date. It was mar-
velous, the theater was packed and we had really good
seats. We chatted with our friends and of course we girls
were commenting on everyone's attire. The audience really
looked and acted the parts we were about to see. This era
may have been a time long gone but certainly not forgot-
ten. There were people under the age of 40 who attended
and there were a few teens. The teenagers must have
thought we were going to atcostume party because they
were certainly decked out in the 50's style. But then I guess
green Mohawks are the style. Ah, to be young again. Na...
let's not! I think I'm pretty happy with where I am.

The big screen suddenly starts and after a few clips of up-
coming movies our main feature begins. You know I did'nt
mind that I had seen this movie before on TV. There was,
something compelling about seeing it in a theater with pop
corn, candy and a drink with my good buddies. Life was
grand and the movie was
special. I enjoyed it. Every
time John appeared on film
the audience went wild with
cheering and clapping. The

With the dog-days of sum-
mer upon us, it's hard to think
about hunting. But if you're
between the ages of 16 and
35 and haven't yet taken the
state's hunter safety class, now's
just the time to be thinking
about it. Many.of these classes,;
offered statewide, fill up fast
during hunting season while
people scramble to get certified.,
Summer months offer smaller
class sizes and make for a bet-
ter opportunity for students to
attend, because youths often'
have more free time then.
People-16 years old or older'
and born after May 31, 1975,
must complete the FWC's hunter
safety requirement before they
can buy a Florida hunting
license.
There is an exception though.
A law passed a few years ago
allows individuals to hunt under
the supervision of a licensed
hunter, age 21 or older, without
having to complete the state's
hunter safety certification.
It's called tle "Hunter Safety
Deferral".and enables those
people to purchase a Florida
hunting license and hunt on
a one-year trial basis. It's


management practices for native
species. In addition, you'll find
out about outdoor survival
techniques and learn how to
administer first aid in the field.
Archery and fundamentals of
bowhunting also are taught.
In your last hour in the class-
room, you'll be given a standard-
ized test of true and false and
multiple-choice questions. If
you score 80 percent or better,
you get to move outside to the
shooting range for the field day
portion.
This part takes about four
hours. During that time, you'll
get to shoot clay pigeons with a
shotgun, practice your archery
skills and target practice with a
.22 rifle. You'll also participate
in a muzzleloader demonstra-
tion, where you'll have the
chance to shoot one if you'd
like. All guns, bows; targets and
ammo are provided. All you
have to do'is take aim!
After you complete.the.field
day, you'll be given your hunter.
safety card. At that point, you
can purchase a. Florida hunting
license and get ready for opening
day.
If you choose to take the
hunter safety class online or by
CD-ROM, you'll learn all of the
above-mentioned material aid
be given a practice test to pre-
pare you for the last segment -
the skills day.
Skill days take about four
hours to complete. You'll learn
much of what is taught during
the traditional course, including
hunting laws and ethics, how to
handle firearms safely, when to
take a shot and where to take .
aim. Then you'll get to shoot on
the range and be given the same
standardized test.
Register today to take a
hunter safety class, 'cause the
2010-2011 hunting season's just
around the corner!

safety requirement or the Hunter
Safety Deferral at Tbny.Young@.

ahead and take a hunter safety
class before you turn 16. Of
course, until then, you may hunt
under adult supervision.
You can register for a hunter
safety class by going to MyFWC.
com/HunterSafety or by contact-
ing your nearest FWC regional
office. Also, there are two ver-
sions for your convenience.
There's the traditional course,
which is 12 hours of classroom
instruction plus a four-hour field
day, or you can opt for taking
the online or CD-ROM version
at home. But, you'll still have to
sign up for the "skills day".part.
The traditional course is
offered during four weekdays
or on a Saturday-Sunday. If
you take it during the week,
each session is three hours and
offered after normal working
hours. On the weekend, you'll
spend eight hours Saturday and
four hours Sunday 'morning in
the classroom. The remainder of
Sunday you'll move over to the
shooting range to complete your
certification.
. The first thing you'll learn in
the traditional class is Florida's
many hunting laws. An F*C
law enforcement officer gives
this introduction. Volunteer
hunter safety instructors teach
the remaining curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics, hunter
responsibility, parts of firearms,
various hunting lingo and the
proper way to shoot. You'll dis-
cover the differences between
various bullets, calibers and
gauges; learn how to identify
game animals; and learn about
wildlife conservation and best

______-___ _-__" CITY ELECTION Sickler graduates Navy

Aomp I TI INFORMATIONN Basic


August 2010
What a country! Where
else in the world would you
expect the top stories of the
day to be "Lindsey L. actu-
ally spends a night in a jail
cell", the hype of a "poten-
tial" hurricane that
drenched the Louisiana
coastline with about half an
inch of rain and "devastat-
ing winds" of 40 mph
(wow), and the coverage of
an ex presidents daughters
wedding used as a political
ad. Seriously, the wanna be
impressionist guy from
'America's got Talent" was
more exciting to watch.
Since none of the above ac-
tivities held my attention, I
decided to use my time to
review articles I have writ-
ten over the past several
years for the month of Au-
gust. (I now must admit:
August, with it's heat waves
and humidity is also not ex-
citing!) The monthly gar-
dening challenges remain:
extreme heat (some records
were already set this year);
sporadic showers making
one to guess whether your
house and garden was
blessed with a-shower while
you were at the supermar-
ket; insect invasions and as-
sorted fungus and blights
that have shown their ugly
faces while you were soak-
ing up the AC on the couch.

Most questions asked of me
lately have been related to
insect pests. Insects are a
part of the complex process
of nature. You need to de-
cide what your own toler-
ance level is and where you
need to step up the game
ahd get them under control.
Personally, I have a low tol-
erance with ants and roach-
es of all sizes. Home reme-
dies like mixing boraxo or
boric acid with flour afid
onions will keep the roaches
under thumb. Likewise,
regular laundry soap pow-
der spread along the base of
your home's foundation and
then lightly sprinkled in
with water discourages the
creepy crawlies to climb up


into your house. Sevin dust
also does the job! Just this
week I also learned of an-
other easy method to end a
nest (mound) of fire ants:
simply pour a bottle of club
soda on top of the mound.
The oxygen will be removed
and the queen will suffo-
cate. As far as dealing with
fungus goes, avoid Watering
directly onto the leaves of
sensitive plants like toma-
toes, peppers, roses and hy-
drangeas. Watering lightly
at the base of the plants to
keep them moist and not
soaked also helps.

August is also a good
month for trimming and
shaping hedges and some
shrubs. An easy rule of
thumb to remember is nev-
er trim any more than about
one third of the branches at
one time. That way the
shrub will not stress out
and will rebound thicker
and fuller with new branch-
es.

The last bit of advice I
would like to.share is to
keep hydrated; both you and
your plants. Be cautious
and drink plenty of good ole
"sky juice" or some health
drink that will replenish
your loss of electrolytes.
Avoid carbonated beverages
and other drinks that are
high in caffeine. It doesn't
get any-better than sitting
in the porch rocker, seeing a
fluttering swallow-tail but-
terfly land on a purple
heather, hear a flitting ruby
throat-ed hummingbird ex-
tract nectar from a bloom-
ing Mexican fire bush and
watching 2 baby Carolina
wrens hopping in the grass
as their mom gives them fly-
ing lessons for their very
first solo flight.

May your August days be
full of positive experiences
as you enjoy your garden
despite what the thermome-
ter reads!

God bless,
Art Wyckoff


Ruth Rains Middle School SWAT
Attends Florida Tobacco Summit
The 2nd Annual Florida
Tobacco Summit was held this year
on June 10th at the Rosen Shingle
Creek Hotel in Orlando, Florida and
was presented by the Florida Area
Education Center (AHEC). Ruth
Rains Middle School SWAT (Stu-
dents Working Against Tobacco)
sponsor Julie Hurst and RRMS
SWAT President, Sarah Hurst, at-
tended the summit. Others from
Dixie County attending the summit
include Melanie Butler (SWAT Di-
rector/Quitdoc Representative for
Dixie County) and T.J Harrington
(Dixie County Manager for Quitdoc
Research and Education).
Guest speakers at the summit in-
cluded Daniel McGoldrick, Vice
President for Research at the Cam-
paign for Tobacco-Free Kids. His
Campaign's mission is to promote
policies and programs that prevent
kids from smoking, help adult snok-
ers quit, and protect everyone from
secondhand smoke. He spoke to the
audience about the FDA regulation
of tobacco, why communities need
more information on this topic, and
why we need to restrict tobacco mar-
keting. For example, did you know
that "light" and "low tar" cigarette
claims made by Philip Morris were
no less harmful than other brands,
and that the tobacco industry delib-
erately marketed low-tar cigarettes
to prevent smokers from quitting?
This fact was revealed by a study
done by the National Cancer Insti-
tute.
Have you heard about
Hookah, and did you know there
were at least seven "Hookah" bars
or cafes in Gainesville already?
Hookah is tobacco smoked through
a water pipe and delivers nicotine to
the smoker. Dr. Tracey Barnett ex-
plained during her presentation that
according'to the FYTS (an anony-


mous, school-based survey random-
ly administered annually to Florida
public middle and high school stu-
dents) Hookah rates among Florida
adolescents are alarmingly high,
and for some groups, increasing.
Snus (a smokefree, spit-
free tobacco that comes in small
pouches) use over the past couple of
years in the United States has be-
come more popular and more avail-
able due to increasing smoking re-
strictions. It is advertised by tobac-
co companies like RJ Reynolds as
"Pleasure for wherever" and if pre-
vious trends are true, youth who
started with SLT (smokeless tobac-
co) are 40% more likely to become
smokers. Advertising and promo-
tional expenditures for smokeless to-
bacco in the United States was over
$350 million dollars last year alone.
Another way the. tobacco
companies are targeting our youth
is through the sale of dissolvable to-
bacco candy called 'Orbs", and/or
"Ariva", just to name a few. These
tobacco products are often placed
right next to the candy in stores,
and attract the younger user who
cannot use other tobacco products.
There has already been at least one
case of poisoning by ingestion of
Orbs by a three year old (Orbs con-
tains 1 mg of nicotine.) An estimat-
ed lethal dose would be about 16-27
Orbs for a 4-year old. (Connolly et al,
Pediatrics 2010)
Thank you, DrBarry
Hummel (owner of Quitdoc/Tobacco
Prevention Specialist and SWAT
sponsor for Dixie County) for send-
ing our youth to such an informa-
tive conference. We plan to share in-
formation learned at this conference
with our community through news-
paper articles, school board meet-
ings, school newspapers, and county
commissioner meetings.

3ww1anted to share
an e-mai received a few days
ago regarding banana bread.

I've been experimenting with
banana bread recipes all sum-
mer and thought I'd share
some ideas with you. It is just
too darn hot to heat up the
oven these days! I've been tak-
ing the bread wheel thing out
of the bread pan before I pour
in my batter, too. That makes it
easier to get the bread out in
one piece
The basic banana bread recipe
I'd gotten off the internet is:
Sift together:
2 cups white flour (or 1 cup
white, 1 cup wheat)*I used all
white flour in my baking ex-
periments.
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix together:
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup (or more banana (2-4 ba-
nanas)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup orange juice or 1/2 cup
orange juice 1/2 cup plain yo-
gurt

*This is where I've been mak-
ing changes in the recipe.
Add dry ingredients to wet
mixture. If you like you can
then mix in 1 cup raisins,,
chopped nuts or chocolate
chips (or some of each). Mix-
ture will be thick.
For baking in the oven, you
will need to preheat oven to 350
degrees. Bake for 1 hour in
greased loaf pan.
Here is how I've changed the
original recipe:
I've omitted the orange juice
and substituted fruit flavored


Q&A About VA's
Medallion Benefit
Q: What is a medallion?
A VA furnished medallion is a de-
vice made of bronze that can be af-
fixed to an existing privately pur-
chased headstone or marker for vet-
erans interred in a private cemetery.
Its purpose is to signify the de-
ceased's status as a Veteran. The
medallion is available in three sizes:
5 inches, 3 inches, and 1 YV inches.
Each medallion will be inscribed
with the word VETERAN across the
top and the branch of service at the
bottom.
Q: Who is eligible for a medallion?
The medallion may be furnished in
lieu of a traditional government
headstone or marker for all deceased
other than dishonorably discharged
Veterans that died on or after Nov. 1,
1990, and whose grave in a private
cemetery is marked with a privately
purchased headstone or marker.
Q: Can I receive both a medallion
and a headstone/marker?
Eligible Veterans are entitled to ei-
ther a traditional government-fur-
nished headstone or marker, or the
medallion, but not both.
Q: How will the medallion be affixed
on the private headstone?
The medallion is mailed without
charge to the Veterans' next of kin
or authorized representative.
Appropriate affixing adhesives,
hardware and instructions are in-
cluded with the medallion. VA is not
responsible for costs to affix the
medallion on the privately'pur-
chased headstone.or marker.


Q: What are the advantages of or-
aering a medallion in lieu of a head-
stone/marker?
1) Made of bronze, will not be dam-
aged during shipment
2) No setting fee the medallion can
be easily affixed to a privately pur-
chased headstone by anyone
3) Some cemeteries only allow one
headstone per grave, thus eliminat-
ing a standard marker to be used
as a footstone. The medallion is an-
other option of identifying a grave
as that of a Veteran.


yogurt cups they sell at the
grocery store. (I've tried the
blueberry flavor and also the
banana-strawberry flavor. Both
loaves were great.)
The last loaf I made, I put half
apple juice and half apple-
sauce in place of the orange
juice. And, I added 1 teaspoon
of cinnamon (I like cinnamon).
This loaf would really have
been good with either chopped
nuts or raisins added. Oh, and
I put the bread machine on the
bake cycle. My machine's bake
cycle takes 1 hour. You check
the doneness of the bread by
inserting a toothpick. If it
comes out clean, the bread is
ready. All of my experimental,
breads have been super moist,
too.
Diane Sanders Dodd
St. George Island, FL

I love the way Diane is switch-
ing ingredients and experi-
menting. That is how you
make a good recipe great. I al-
ways have to make substitu-
tions when I cook for my fami-
ly. I usually substitute celery
for bell pepper and I always
have to lighten up on the gar-
lic and onion. This also works
in reverse. If I want a choco-
late dessert to last longer than
15 minutes I add nuts or
raisins.

I am always teasing my mother
about her substitutions. My
mother is an excellent cook un-
less she hasn't been to the
store in a while. She would
rather face a firing squad in-
stead of going to the store so
she can get really inventive
with her ingredients. This is
an example of my mom chang-.
ing around a recipe. She calls
and asks for my tuna casserole


Q: How do I order a medallion?
For family members of eligible Vet-
erans interested in submitting a
claim for the new medallion, instruc-
tions
on how to apply for a medallion will
be updated on NCA's web site at
www.cem.va.gov/hm_hm.asp. Until
a new form specifically for ordering
the medallion is available, use VA

VOTE
Dear Fellow Citizens of Dixie County,

On Monday, August 9th, the polls will
open for early voting. They will close
at 7 p.m. on August 24th. During
that time BE SURE TO VOTE.

On a personal note, it is becoming


recipe to make for a covered
dish dinner at the church.
When I talk to her later she'll
mention the casserole just did-
n't taste right and maybe she
wrote something down wrong.
When I ask what was wrong
she gives me a rundown of the
"substitutions" she made to
avoid going to the store. She
used corned beef hash instead
of tuna, tomato soup instead
of cream of mushroom soup
and asparagus instead of
mushrooms. She didn't have
cheddar cheese so she used low
fat cottage cheese and for the
topping she substituted gra-
ham crackers drizzled with
olive oil instead of bread-
crumbs and melted butter.
Then she tells me she just
bragged on me and told every-
one at the dinner she got this
tuna casserole dish from her
daughter, Mary, Mary Quite
Contrary I sputter and fume.
"Mom, you didn't use the
recipe I gave you. Just go to
the store!" She vows she will
go to the store. The next day I
get a call. She didn't make it
to the store and do I have a
recipe for spaghetti that uses
canned English peas and a box
of cornbread mix?

Thanks for the recipes and e-
mails! I love hearing from you
and look forward to your e-
mails. Send me any tips that
have made your life easier or
recipes that have made your
taste buds sing! We are all in
the same boat. There will al-

Resolution" giving Presi-
dent Johnson the power to
take whatever actions he

Southeast Asia.

The resolution was passed
in response to an attack by
the North Vietnamese Navy
Torpedo Squadron on the
American destroyers USS
Maddox on August 2 and the
USS Turner Joy on August
4. These actions are known
collectively as the "Gulf of
Tonkin Incident".

The resolution was of his-
torical significance because
it allowed for the use of mil-

itary force without a formal
declaration of war. The
unanimous vote in the
House of Representatives
was 416-0.

The Johnson Administra-
tion relied upon the resolu-
tion to begin its rapid esca-
lation of US military in-
volvement in South Vietnam
and open warfare between
North Vietnam and the Unit-
ed States.

After the attacks, President
Johnson stated that the reso-
lution "would help hostile


nations understand
that the U.S. was uni-
fied in its determina-
tion to continue to
protect its national
interests".
And thus began the
Viet Nam War.

Also on this date in
1789, Congress estab-
lished the US War De-
partment. It was reconstitut-
ed in 1947 as the Department
of the Army, when the mili-
tary administration was re-
organized.

THE REST OF THE STORY







ABOUT APPOINTED JUDGES




The Constitutional provision that forces Judge Koberlein to retire also contains a provision that prohibits a County

Judge from hearing Circuit Court Cases without meeting a minimum experience level and obtaining an appointment.


Since 2003, as an Acting Circuit Judge Koberlein has presided over all family law cases in Dixie County. They

include: adoption, dissolution of marriage, domestic violence, paternity, child custody, and child support. Unless

Judge Koberlein is re-elected this year, a judge from outside of our county will be appointed to handle these
cases.


Since 2003, Acting Circuit Judge Koberlein has been responsible for all Dixie County Circuit Court civil cases including

breach of contract, accidents, negligence, malpractice, maritime, real estate cases, and others. Unless Judge
Koberlein is re-elected this year, a judge from outside of our county will be appointed to handle these cases.


Since 2003, Acting Circuit Judge Koberlein has been responsible for all Dixie County Probate, Guardianship and
Mental Health cases. Unless Judge Koberlein is re-elected is elected this year, a judge from outside of our

county will be appointed to handle these cases.


Acting Circuit Judge Koberlein is currently our judge for all juvenile delinquency and dependency cases and some of

our felony cases. Unless Judge Koberlein is re-elected this year, a judge from outside of our county will be ap-

Spointed to handle these cases.


Judge Koberlein has juggled his calendar and stretched his time to cover those Circuit Court cases after insuring that
he can complete all responsibilities of the County Judge position. That is, he has handled all of those Circuit Court

cases secondary to his primary assignment of being OUR COUNTY JUDGE. His ability and his availability to do both
jobs is yet another reason that we should keep Judge Koberlein.




SKEEP.ALL OF THOSE CASES IN THE



HANDS OF



OUR DIXIE COUNTY JUDGE;




.. VOTE TO RE-ELECT





JUDGE KOBERLEIN

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes
keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the coast,
heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared photography.
Once oil is found, they radio down to the 6,000 ships and boats of all sizes that are
supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect the oil. These are thousands of
local shrimping and fishing boats organized into. task forces and strike teams, plus
specialized skimmers mobilized from as far as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from the Gulf.
Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional gallons of oil from the
water. We've deployed more than 8 million feet of boom to protect beaches and
sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In coordination
with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend operations temporarily but
have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on the
cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the Gulf as long
as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect but we will do everything
we can to make this right.


For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
