The job numbers are look-
ing worse in Florida for
July, up to 11.1% statewide.
Dixie County took a serious
hit during the month and
recorded the highest rate so
far this year at 13.4%. The
rate was 12.9% in June, and
12.3% in July a year ago.

In human terms, this means
that 753 people out of Dix-
ie's work force of 5,614 are
unable to get a job. Last
month 740 people were un-
employed, in a work force of
5,756. 142 people just gave
up and dropped out of the
work force altogether.

Gilchrist and Levy Counties
saw similar jumps in the
rate of jobless residents.
Dixie and Levy Counties are
ranked 12th and 13th, re-
spectively, in the list of
counties with the highest
unemployment rates in the
state.

Frank Darabi, Engineer, ap-
peared before the Commis-
sion on Thursday evening to
present his recommenda-
tions to the Board about
how to best get water to Old
Town. He said that when
looked at on a "dollar-cost
benefit," that "Old Town
doesn't rank too high" and
that "I recommend that you
rejoin the authority," refer-
ring to the Nature Coast Re-
gional Water Authority. The
Commission voted to leave
the authority and to not pay
them $5,000 to remain a
member a few months ago
due to concerns primarily
that Levy and Gilchrist
Counties would take-priori-
ty'over Dixie County water
projects and supplies. Dara-
bi also recommended that
the Commission appoint a
committee to take another
six months to study the
problem, saying "Old
Town's problem is not as
bad as everybody thinks it


is. The school is right there
and doesn't have any prob-
lem." He recommended that
Doug Anderson be put on
the proposed committee,
saying that "The Anderson
family has lots of land
around there," and might be
persuaded to donate some.

Darabi insisted on complete
cooperation from the Board,
saying that "I don't want to
get into this without a'5-0
vote of the Commission. It's
going to be a lot of
headaches." Chairman Mar-
vin Hunt apparently wasn't
in the mood to be bullied,
and said, "Only thing I can
tell you then is to go get you
a bottle of aspirin." With--
out complete acquiescence
from the Board, Darabi said,
"I'll just go do something
else."

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy diplomatically skirted
the Commission's lack of in-


terest in rejoining the Water
Authority, saying, "I cbncur
with the Committee and
with the six months," and
the Commission agreed to
appoint a committee to
study the problem.

Darabi is probably best
known locally as the Manag-
ing Partner and developer of
University Corners, the
high-end multi-million dol-
lar residential and commer-
cial complex that was never
built at the intersection of
University Avenue and 13th
Street in Gainesville.

Phil Bishop of North Flori-
da Professional Services, ap-
peared to update the Com-
mission on progress on on-
going and proposed county
projects, including boat
ramp improvements at
Jena, Horseshoe and
Demory Creek.

Husband & Wife arrested


for theft of antique clock


A married couple were ar-
rested for burglary and
theft of an antique clock on
Saturday after deputies
were called to a home on
S.E. 601 Street where they
.were given information
from a property caretaker
regarding a burglary. The
homeowner has had some
medical issues over the past
several weeks and was the
victim of an earlier bur-
glary. During Saturday's
burglary, a witness saw two
individuals leaving the resi-
dence and notified the care-
taker who thought he recog-
nized the suspects as Kris
and Marshall Durocher, of
Old Town.

Once he notified the Sher-
iff's Office, they responded

to the scene and were able to
obtain this information pri-
or to their interviews with
the suspects. After making
contact with the victim by
phone, they were told that
the suspects had been told to
stay away from.the resi-
dence and that there would
be someone else overseeing
the property while he was
incapacitated.

During questioning, the
male suspect began com-
plaining of a medical com-
plaint and Dixie County
EMS was called. EMS trans-
ported Mr. Durocher, age 48,
to the hospital and the in-
vestigation continued with


Kris Durocher


the eventual arrest of the fe-
male, Kris Durocher, 49.
She was arrested for Bur-
glary and Grand Theft and
booked into the Dixie Coun-
ty Jail.

Around 3:00AM staff from
the hospital called and said
Mr. Durocher had become
belligerent and left the hos-
pital on foot. After receiv-
ing this information, Sher-
iff's deputies again began
looking for the suspect. He
was apprehended later that
morning and booked into
the Dixie County Jail on the
charges of Burglary and
Grand Theft.


Darabi says "rejoin the Authority"

Every W\eek without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


S
Advise & Consent: There for a reason


. The addition of yet another poorly qualified associate
justice to the United States Supreme Court is not the
fault of the Republican Party (though GOP presidents
have contributed their share), but much of the blame
can be laid at the feet of five Republican Senators.
Elena Kagan's nomination was approved by the Senate
in a 63-37 vote, which made it a filibuster-proof majori4
ty. Democrats have 59 Senate seats at the presentitime.
One Senate Democrat, Nebraska's Ben Nelson, voted
against Kagan, further providing the Republicans a
'.golden opportunity to at least make-an issue of the.
rubber-stamp process that resulted in last year's con-
firmation of Sonya Sotomayor. The ensuing period has
shifted the public's mood away from giving President
Obama everything he wants, and even some Congres-
sional Democrats are getting the message--though in
this case, apparently Ben Nelson is the only senator to
have caught on thus far.

The five Republicans who voted in favor of Kagan are
Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins of Maine, Judd
Greg of New Hampshire, Indiana's RichardLugar and
Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

I would have expected Collins and Snowe to vote for a
liberal Denmocrat simply because that's typical of how
they vote most of the time anyway, and frankly I won-
der why they don't just switch parties and get it over
with. I'm not sure about Lugar and Greg, but Graham
articulated his reasons, saying that while he didn't go
along with Kagan's politics, he thought it was the in-
tent of the Founding Fathers that the president be al-,
lowed to put the people he wanted on the Supreme
Court. Good enough, and yet one must assume that the
Framers of the Constitution required advise and con-
sent of the Senate for a reason.

This is an area where the Democrats get it and the Re-
publicans apparently do not. Granted, therb was a time
when it was generally accepted that the Senate would
fail to confirm a presidential nomination only in the
event that a nominee was grossly unqualified for the
job. Sort of a safety net to avoid the sort of "brother-
in-law" appointments that have been known to. crop up
in the political realm.

.For the most part, Republican senators continue to
honor this tradition. Though at the time they lacked
the numbers to block either of Bill Clinton's Supreme
Court nominees, they could have made an issue of ei-
.ther candidate; however they adhered to protocol, vot-
ing overWhelmingly to confirm both Stephen Breyer
and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Contrast this with Senate Democrats' blocking the
nominations of Richard Nixon's first two high court
appointees, their blocking Reagan's appointment of
Robert Bork, and their attempt to obstruct George H.W
Bush's appointment of Clarence Thomas.

I don't find poker interesting, mainly because I always
lose money when I participate; but I have heard that
some of the game's more sophisticated participants
engage in what they call a "gentleman's game," in
which the players announce what cards are in their
hands without having to show them. An uncle of mine
made it through the depression of the 1930s playing
poker, but his was not a gentleman's game.

Likewise, some think that politics should be a gentle-
man's game (not in the sense of excluding ladies, of
course), but if it ever was, I find little evidence of it in
the'history looks. And in any event, a gentleman's
game is certainly not what politics is today, at least not
beyond local elections where everybody knows every-
body else, and sometimes not even there.

That's something the Republicans need to learn, and if
a more explicit illustration of my point is in order,
consider that one does not wear boxing gloves to a bar
room brawl.

SvitReuben, I have to say it. Livin' with you has
b en an adventure any woman would relish
for the rest o' time. I look at cha, with your
burned outface and your big belly and your
bear-like paws and your shining eye, and I have to say you're
a credit to the whole male sex, and I'm'proud to have yafor
my friend. --Katherine Hepburn in Rooster Cogburn

I am as sorry as I can be to have to ruin your day like this,
but somebody has to tell you: the end of the world as we
know it is at hand. Hollyweird, in it's infinite wisdom and
total lack of original imagination, is filniing.....(and you
might want to sit down first before finishing this sen-
tence)...a remake of True Grit. I know, I
know, it's just plain wrong. There are some Rooster Coghu
things that all right-thinking people believe writ here says
are sacred: you don't re-write The Bible, you
don't re-mix Hotel California or Freebird Chin Lee's con
and you aon't re-nmake John Wayne movies It's a rat wrlt,
without the Duke! Is lawful servli
dnel nwn

John Wayne movies are just that, John uU"" pay "a.
Wayne movies. When he walked onto the [shoots the rat]
screen, thAt Was it. You lnow that the movie
you were watching was the definitive ver- Rooster Cogun
sion. No watered down, soulless Chinese
knock-off of a movie; it was a John Wayne papers on a rat,
movie. Oh sure, his female stars were bril- gotta Idll him or
liant, of course...hot tempered redheads who
gave him a run for his money in character
and some, like Katherine Hepburn, who lit up the screen
with her wit and personality, long after her movie-star youth
and beauty were history. But still,.Rooster Cogburn isn't a
Katherine lepburn movie, it's a John Wayne movie. The
man was a genre of film unto himself.

I don't really like the WWII.movies he did, but it's not his
ftult, ~ juist orit like war movies. I love the funny ones. I
love McClirttock, Rooster Cogburn,. The Sons of Katie
Elder..the ones with an older, gruffer, more John Wayne-ier
John Wayne. I.love every single minute of The Quiet Mdn. I


'a


love The Shootist, which is probably the best movie he ever
made....even though it's almost too sad to watch. And it
breaks my heart to think that one day I'll see a commercial
for McClintock....starring George Clooney and Susan Suran-
don..(Ewwwww. I need a bath after just thinking that dirty
thought.)

And what really chaps my hide is not only that they are re-
making the classic movie, but that Hollywood can't leave it
alone. They have to mess with it; to make it fit their twisted,
left-wing view of the world. John Wayne was a life-long die-
hard Republican, of course, and in the er4iginl real True
Grit, The Duke wears an eyepatch over his left eye, and
views the world through his right. Subtle symbolism, for
those who notice such things, and a silent tribute to Wayne's
- friend John Ford, who was blind in that
Mr. Rat, I have a eye. Of, course in the copycat version,
u're to stop eating John Wayne wannabe, and notorious
lefty and Obama worshipper Jeff
eal forthwith. Now Bridges will be wearing an eyepatch
I for a rat, and this over his right eye and seeing things
of the same. See, only from the left. He's also wearing a
scruffy nasty-looking beard of which
ttentlon to me. I'm fairly sure the clean-shaven Duke
would not have approved.


n: You can't serve
baby sister. You
let him be.


I wonder-if the animal rights,folks will
make them cut the rat shooting scene in
this new version? And of course, I
doubt they'll be able to resist throwing
in some mistreated Native Americans.
And I'm sure they'll have to add lots of


nails-ddwn-a-chalkboard profanity, cover-the-kids-eyes
graphic violence and maybe a (gasp!) naked scene or two "to
appeal to modern sensibilities.'' And Rooster won't be able
to wear boots.....leather is bad for cows and frowned upon by
PETA, don't you know. And Chin Lee will probably be in
dragas a sop to the LGBT community....and General Sterling
Price the cat will be a fluffy little dog.... the horror...the
horror!

The end of the world as we know it, indeed. I'm sure glad
The Duke didn't live to see Hollywood spit on his legacy.

Law & Local


To/I/ ters

by Bonnie Wilson

They say there's no place
like home and that is quite
true. This weeks trail ride
was one on our own proper-
ty. We took a brief rest dur-
ing the hot summer of July
and August, so as Septem-.
ber draws near, Dave and I
had to get our horse's back
into condition to hit the
trails on our September 5th
ride at

our club.

The heat
index was
slowly ris-
ing as we
put our
horses in
their stalls
to saddle
them for to-
day's ride. .
Dave has a
new horse .
that he will
be riding
and getting ready for our
trail rides this season. His
name is Sport and he is a
Tennessee Walking Horse.
He's what my grandfather
would call a "tall drink of
water" as he is tall and lean
like the typical TWH. Sport
is a likeable fellow, not a
mean bone in his body and
he is very attentive to Dave's
cues.

Of course my cute little guy
Coby is as always a sweet
boy and he is a Racking
horse, which means he is
out of Kentucky Mountain
and Tennessee Walkers
bloodline. Coby is easy to
handle and he stands quiet-
ly as we saddle him and get
him ready to ride.

Soon we are ready to head
out to the back of our prop-
erty for a trail blazing day
and Coby and I are leading.
On our back property line
Dave had made some inter-
esting trails that wind thru
thickly covered woods, Just
wide enough for one horse
to lead through comfortably.
I like it as it reminds me of
our adventuresome trails in
the forest that we normally
ride in. Being in the lead is
not necessarily a good
thing. Today I am forced to
duck under some low hang-
ing tree limbs. I didn't have
the problem that Dave did
as he sits "tall in the saddle"
. However I soon discovered
that I went thru a spider
web and it was disgustingly
sticky. Yuk! Then Dave tells


me that I have a large spider
crawling up the back of my
shirt heading straight for
my collar and neckline.
Holy cow! Get this thing off
me and whoa Coby! I was
swatting my back and pray-
ing that thing did not crawl
onto my hand or get into my
hair. Okay. I was yelling my
head off too and that was
before Dave told me that "it"
was as big as my own hand!
The spider landed some-
where south of Coby and I
and Coby never acted as
though
She was
upset
by my
yelling
and
swat-
ting.
That
was the
only
good
thing
about
the en-
tire in-
cident. I
know I
live in the country and I
honestly love it here in Dix-
ie County but I swear I hate
creepy crawly things, like
spiders and snakes. But I do
love the deer and the other
four footed wild life that ap-
pear on our property.

We had a great ride today It
was great to be back in the
saddle again. We even al-
lowed our older quarter
horse gelding, Buddy, to join
in on the fun as he trailed
right along with Dave and
Sport.

I am longing for cooler
weather and I anxiously
await for fall to arrive. I
know we will have some
great rides together with
Sport, our new addition to
our family Look for us out
on the trails in September
and be sure to say hi. If you
love trail riding, and good
company come on out and
join us. Email us at
levy2@flahorse.com. Until
, next time, happy trails to
you.


From COMMISSION, pg 1

Bishop said that the box cul-
vert for the Belly Deep canal
project is finished and they
should be finished up out by
the Timbers Apartments in
the next few weeks. About
Suwannee's new culverts,
he said, "We're making ex-
tremely good progress down
there and we will be
through by our September
25th deadline."

He said that Anderson Co-
lumbia was the only bidder
on the turn lanes on CR 349
at $435,870.67, which was
$3,100 over budget, but that.
if the project is completed
in tandem with the DOT
paving, that will bring the
job in under budget.

Commissioner Mark Hatch -
made a point of expressing
his displeasure at the Com-
mission being forced by the
State to "rubber stamp" ap-
proval to place the School
Board millage rate increase
at .25 on the November Bal-
lot. County Attorney Jen-
nifer Ellison explained that
the Commission really has
no choice, but Hatch voted
"no" anyway as a protest
vote, saying "I'm voting no
now, and no in November.
It's just a way to jack up our
property taxes." (See full
text of. ballot initiative, pg 2)

Letter was discussed from
Hamilton County's Board of
Commissioners asking Dixie
to join them in protesting a
move by the North Florida
Regional Planning Council
to "limit the harvesting of
biomass from natural re-
sources of regional signifi-
cance." The feedback from
local counties will be.on the
NCFRPC meeting agenda on
Thursday evening at 5:00 pm
in Lake City.

Commissioner Troy John-
son strongly voiced his op-
position to the move which
could potentially devastate
the timber industry locally

REVISION OF THE CLASS SIZE
\REQUIREMENTS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Ballot Summary:
The Florida Constitution currently limits the
maximum number of students assigned to each
teacher in public school classrooms in the fol-
lowing grade groupings: for prekindergarten
through grade 3, 18 students; for grades 4
through 8, 22 students; and for grades 9 through
12, 25 students. Under this amendment, the cur-
rent limits on the maximum number of students
assigned to each teacher in public school class-
rooms would become limits on the average num-
ber of students assigned per class to each teacher,
by specified grade grouping, in each public
school. This amendment also adopts new limits
on the maximum number of students assigned to
each teacher in an individual classroom as fol-
lows: for prekipdergarten through grade 3, 21
students; for grades 4 through 8, 27 students; and
for grades 9 through 12, 30 students. This
amendment specifies that class size limits do not
apply to virtual classes, requires the Legislature
to provide suffiLient funds to maintain the aver-
age number of students required by this amend-
ment, and schedules these revisions to take effect
upon approval by the electors of this state and to
operate retroactively to the beginning of the

Trisha Sirmons Auvil Retires

by Trisha Auvil
After 43 years of being a hairdresser in Dixie County, I am
retiring. I started my career in 1968 at Lorina's Beauty Sa-
lon. Most of my professional values and work ethics began
with what Lorina taught me. Not only was she a great boss,
but a dear friend and one whom I greatly admire.
Through the years many people have sat in my chair at one
time or another. Some I have pleased and some I have not. It
has been said that you can please some of the people some
of the time but none of the people all of the time. I have al-
ways tried to do my very best for all of my customers. I just
hope everyone knew that I really worked hard to please
each of them.
Serving the public has been my job for the past 43 years. In
all of those years I have found that I am a beautician and
not a magician but I have certainly enjoyed my work and
the constant flow of mostly happy customers. Clients who
have become good friends over these past years and I will
surely miss all the laughing and the sharing of important
events and treasured moments in their lives and mine.
There are several clients that have remained with me since
I first started many years ago with Lorina in July of
1968.To all of you lovely ladies that have stayed with me
'these 40 plus years, I sincerely thank you for your faithful-
ness, commitment, and most of all, your loyalty. That has
meant so much to me, much more than you will ever know.
Once'again I say thank you to all of the people who have
supported me through my career. Please know that I will
miss each of you, but I am looking forward to the next
chapter in my life.
Sincerely,
Patricia Sirmons Auvil

ThankYou

Dear Voters,
For the past several years, my wife, Sue, and I have felt an out-
pouring of your warmth and welcome. Last night, you expressed that warmth with your
votes. We are humbly overwhelmed.
I especially thank those tireless volunteer workers who assisted my campaign. Yes,
everybody who worked on my campaign was a volunteer. Next time you see one of them,
please thank them again for me.
There was one special person who was always available when I needed her. She
calmed me when I was excited, she pumped me up when I was depressed. Most important-
ly, she prayed with me. Many of you already know her, thank you Carol West.
Those of you who have been candidates know that a solo candidate would be a
lonesome candidate. Without my loving family, I would have been lost. Thank you all; I love
you.
And, a VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU to every one of you who voted for me. In
2003, the Governor sent me here. I thought the job responsibilities were awesome. In 2004,
you decided to keep me here. Now, you have again placed your trust in me. I will pray daily
that I do not breach your trust.
Thank you,

Local


few'days ago a
genteman made a gorgeous and
tasty cake for his wife and fami-
ly He allowed me to share the
recipe and a picture of the cake
but for some reason refused to
allow me to share his name. He
did agree to allow me to refer to
him as the Wonderful Unnamed
Husband. Please don't make the
mistake that this is my better
half because if it ain't
grilled my man aint doing
it. I can't give you a first
hand testimonial regarding
the tastiness of this recipe
because I didn't even get a
crumb, but everyone that
was privileged enough to
get a piece was very com-
plimentary

actreVn1e

Chocolate


2 cups white sugar
13/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa pow-
der
11/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water *
Icing
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa
powder
5 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
(175 degrees C). Grease and
flour two 9 inch cake pans.
Use the first set of ingredients
to make the cake. In a medium
bowl, stir together the sugar,.
flour, cocoa, baking soda, bak-
ing powder and salt. Add the
eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix


for 3 minutes with an electric
mixer. Stir in the boiling water
by hand. Note: the Unnamed
Wonderful Husband told me
that when the water is added
the'batter is very watery so
don't be surprised. Pour evenly
into the two prepared pans.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the
preheated oven, until a tooth-
pick inserted comes out clean.


Cool for 10 minutes before re-
moving from pans to cool cqm-
pletely
To make the frosting, use the
second set of ingredients.
Cream butter until light and
fluffy. Stir in the cocoa and con-
.fectioners' sugar alternately
with the milk and vanilla. Beat
to a spreading consistency.
Split the layers of cooled cake
horizontally, cover the top of
each layer with frosting, then
stack them onto a serving plate:
Frost the outside of the cake.
The strawberries were made by
simply wetting them with some
water and rolling them in sugar.
He got the recipe at www.all-
recipes.com/Recipe/Extreme-
Chocolate-Cake/Detail.aspx.
Since this recipe uses vanilla I
wanted to share a recipe I re-
ceived from past Dixie County
resident Joanna Wade Miller for
vanilla extract.
1 cup of good brandy (any top
shelf brandy) and 2 vanilla
beans. Cut beans into 1 inch
pieces and let sit in brandy for 3


months. Shake 2 times a week.
She said her Mom used to make
her own vanilla all the time and
it really makes a difference. I
agree one hundred percent. You
can also use vodka and it takes
less time, but she prefers the
brandy. When I made mine I
used the vodka recipe. 2 cups
vodka and 5 vanilla beans. Cut
beans into 1 inch pieces and let
sit 6-8 weeks. Vanilla
beans are expensive, but
both recipes make a lot
of extract. I think in the
long run, it is less ex-
pensive and tastes so
much better. I did some
reading about home-
S made vanilla extract
and discovered the
vanilla beans can be
reused. Just add 1 cup of
either the brandy or
vodka and start again.'I
made two jars so when I
use up one Ican go
ahead and make some
more.

Tip
A wonderful way to help an old-
er teething toddler with gum
pain is to take some grapes (I
,use red grapes because green
grapes can sometimes be sour)
and slice them into manageable
pieces. I usually slice them into
at least eight small pieces. Be
sure to do this because whole
grapes can be a choking hazard.
Place them into the freezer.
Then when their gums seem to
be bothering them let them eat
the frozen grape pieces.
In addition to my usual begging
for recipes and tips I would like
to add a request for any recipes
that uses wild game. I would
also love any recipes or tips that
you use while at your camp. I
got a couple of great recipes
from one of our camp's neigh-
bors and would like to have
more to share. Actually, I just
want to hear from you. E-mail
me anything anytime at
Cravey644@bellsouth.net

Feow Co-Op ])Members:
My name is Randy Mikell and I am running for re-election to the Board of
Trustees for Central Florida Electric Co-op, Inc. I have been serving on the
Board for the past 9 years. Economic times have been hard on everyone the past
few years including the Co-op. We have strived at CFEC to keep the rates as low
as possible and still keep the service and'reliability high. Of all the electric co-
op's in Florida our rate cost for power to the 'consumer averages right in the mid-
dle between all the others, which is where it should be. With growing
electrical demands we have some high cost decisions to make, like the Dem'psey
substation installed a few years ago north of Old Town, or the new Suwannee
transmission line being installed now. These are not things we want to do, these
are things we have to do to keep the systems reliable. The Co-op is a
multi-million dollar operation, these are not numbers we can play with. Our
co-op is strong and financially sound. I want to continue working with the other
directors and employees at CFEC to help keep it that way.

In a few days, you will relieve a ballot in the mail from the Co-op. I am asking
for your vote and continued support. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Randy J. Mikell, President, CFEC

Facebook Question of the Week,
Back to School Edition: Who
was the best or most
memorable Dixie County
teacher you ever had? Why?


Mary Cravey Sheheane Mrs.
Daniels and Mrs. Whittington....cause
I could make them laugh

Mchelle Berry Clark For me it was
and is Mark Rains he was very help-
ful to me when I first moved here
making my transition easier.

Marcus Ferner Mr. Kilgoro.. In First
Grade...He Made His Sudents Wooden
Boats And Other Stuff

Marie Hunt Mr. Killgore at Old
Town ele, he really cared about his
ob and the students
iffany Suzann Arwood Mrs. Pa-
trone,she was a great teacher. I love
er... If I was to go back to school I
would want her to be my teacher full
time...And Mrs. Joyner, she taught
me alot.

Mary Cravey Sheheane I just real-
ized you said Dixie County..I was
thinking High School...I have had so
many wonderful teachers...Mrs.
Harden...Mrs. Engers...Mrs. Sum-
rall...Mrs. Durham....Mrs.
Jones....Mrs. Moller....my other half
included Mr. Rains and Bruce Boyette
....wow...we were so fortunate to have
grown up in Dixie County!

Cheryl Reynolds it is hard to pick
just a few of them i had teachers in
old town that made a spot in my life
and i had a few in high school that
made a spot all good and then there
was the few that you will never forget
because you and them did not get
along at all

Debbie Riels Lee Oh I Had many!
Mrs Judy Sumrall (I know that I am
still her favorite student LOL) Most
of all she taught me to always put
GOD first in your life and everything
else will fall into place! She gave me
my love for pictures and my first job!
(... I still don't know why Terry put up
with all of us but I am sure glad he
did) Miss Pauline Sauls taught me a
lot about High School, Self Respect
and TRUST. At the end of the school
year she gave me a set of praying
hands that she had made with my
name on them I still have them to
this day! Mr. Tommy cooper Drivers
Ed need i say more! Mrs. Joy Evans
Hall, no matter what was going on
she remained calm and never raised
her voice. Mr. Les Hall he taught me
that school was not bad and how to
enjoy it. Mr. George Hall he taught
me how to spell GEOGRAPHY
George Ellison's Oldest Girl Rode A
Pony Home Yesterday! For some rea-
son I still remember that.

Terry Rollison I agree with Mary,
there were so many wonderful teach-
ers it's hard to pick just one. But I
would have to say, if I had to pick
one, it would be Mrs. Linda Baumer.
She taught me shorthand for two
years in Highschool and then I got to
be her assistant for one year. .

Scott Thisse My favorites? Mrs
Paula Massie (now Whittier), Mrs.
Anne Engers, Mr. Casey Carlisle, and
Mrs. Lucy Moeller (now Goddard).

Ashley Deen Mrs Petrone and Anne
Engers were the most supportive
teachers i came across. They really
got involved in their students.

Flossie Riels My sweetest
teacher..Mrs. Ruth Rains, Mrs. Annel-
la Jackson, Mrs. Kay Harddn, and the
most fun teacher was Mr. Wandle
Wheeler, and Coach Eddie Petricka
(Study Hall) Coach Petricka always
let us eat in class. Its hard to pick just
a few!

Donna Crave3y My favorite teacher
was Anne Engers. She was a wonder-
ful teacher: Organized, prepared, pro-
fessional, knowledgeable about her
subject, and an excellent classroom
manager.

Benjie Floyd Bowman Showing my
age...it's a toss up between ms bond
or ns wheeler.

Liz Vaughan Every teacher had
some kind of influence on my life (for
which rm thankful!). Mrs.Amy Deen,
from OTE, was one of my most influ-
ential. She taught me to never settle
for others' expectations, to always
strive ahead. And Mrs.Candance
Evans,......she taught me life lessons,
not just how to excel in the class-
room. Mr.Drew Stone was also a fa-
vorite. I was lucky enough to have
him twice in one day my Senior year,
for Chemistry and as a student assis-
tant. He put so much time into teach-
ing, but also being a role model. Nev-
er was he too busy to help a student.
He genuinely wanted everyone to suc-
ceed.

Ruthy Buzbee Mrs. Engers...........she
was tough but a wonderful math
teacher. I learned so much from her.

Dawn Chatman DeVanie Gosh, I
think I am like Mary and Liz, I was
blessed with so many teachers that
had such a great and influential im-
pact on my life. I am so blessed to
have been in the Dixie County school
system.

Bernice Joanne Walker 3rd grade
Mrs. Raker she helped with the pass-
ing of my dad. Mr Green made math
fun.

Sheila Engers Nichols Of course, I
will have to say my mother. But, it is
SOOO nice to see others who feel the
same! Thank you.

Toma Jo Corbin Michael From Old
Town-Mr. Killgore...when u made it to
his class you were the cool kids!!!
From DCHS-Ms. Wells-she taught me
to appreciate literature and Mrs.
Kathy Driggers-had so much fun on
Yearbook staff with her and Ms.
Wells both-Mrs. Driggers can we bor-
row your white Mustang!!!

Chris Meagley Number 1. Kathy
Driggers, no BS approach on the task
at hand and was really funny for any-
one with an IQ over 100

Jody Fell Mrs. Kay Harden(Algebra)
and Mrs. Betty Davidson (Health
Occ.) by far my most memorable!

Georgia Hodge mom....:P

Leonor Sullivan I am so so sorry
that I mis spelled Mrs. Wells name up,
there....But first she was Mrs. Cottle I
back when I was in the 9th grade
then my senior year Mrs.Wells but I
had a hard time remembering the
new name ...LOVE HER!

Terry Milam Greenwell Like most
of you all, I have more than one mem-
orable teacher from High School.
Mrs. Currie, Ms. Doster (Dalton), Ms.,
Sauls, Mrs. Kay Harden, Mrs.,Paula
Massey, Mrs. Vickers and list goes on
and on....

Gwen Howell Partin Mrs Harden,
Mr Baumer, Mr Durham, Susan
Wheeler and Coach Vickers from
High School. Mr Wheeler and Mr
.Harden were awesome Principals. All
of us girls adored Skipper Jones at
AE. But the one teacher who left the
biggest impression and Ill never for-
get was Mr Shoniker. I wish I could
have known him as an adult.

Charlie Moore Wow, Gr8 responses,
and i agree with most- We were very
fortunate to have such gr8 teachers in
Dixie, but 1 for me in Elementary was
very special..(4th grade teacher) She
really brought the best out of her stu-
dents and challenged them to ......do
the best possible! MRS. ELLIS! Also i
have fond memories of Mrs Bessie
Sheppard (1st grade)......even if she
did swat me with the Ruler on the
Hand-LOL- Im sure i needed it! She
was awesome and i think many
would agree- for middle and High
School there was many. Mr. and Mrs.
Baumer, Mrs. Currie, Mrs. Engers,
Mrs Daniels, (oh i cant forget Mr.
Daniels) he wrote me my 1st ticket,,,
of course that wasn't high school..ust
real life school...lol... Mr Fowler, Mr.
and Mrs Harden, Mrs Sumrall.. And
Naturally i couldn't forget Mr. Wheel-
er and Mr. Peppers! Yes we were very
Blessed..Those were the Days!

Terry Rollison I know we are talk-
ing about favorite teachers now, but
can I give a shout out to my favorite
bus driver, Mrs. Chewning. She drove
the bus on Hwy 19 from Old Town to
Cross City She was great. She didn't
put up with anything. She would
scream out "We don't do that on this
here bus!!!". And she meant it One
day a fight broke out on the bus be-
tween two boys, she pulled the bus
over to the side of the road, the got
off of the bus, had their fight, made
up, and got back ori the bus. She was
one of a kind.

Sam Chavous I was fortunate to
have had Mrs, Bessie sheppard as a
teacher in two grades 1st, and 5th,
and as wonderful a person as she was
in and out school she new how to use
a paddle if you needed it!!'
Kathy McKinney Mrs. James.n 2nd
grade, for teaching me my times ta-
bles with jelly-bean bribes, Mrs. Un-
derhill in 5th grade for teaching me
about Romads (I've never forgotten!),
and thank'the Lord for Lucy Moeller,
Who taught me how to type. She said
I'd use it forever, and she was right.

to listen to people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have
19 community centers and teams in four states, listening and helping.

Restoring The Economy .
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and
restaurant owners, helping to make them whole.',-

More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have.
already gone to people affected by the spill. We have committed a
$20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate claims, including lost
incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.

BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism
recover and bring people back to the Gulf beaches. .

Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams
will remain in place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.

And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific
experts on the impact of the spill and to restore environmental' damage.

Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support
over 10,000jobs in the region and people here are our neighbors. We
know we haven't always been. perfect, but we will be here until the oil
is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal. We will do
everything we can to make this right.
