Sinking SHIP:

Downpayment assistance gone until July 2111


Rita Harris, of Harris Ad-
ministrative Services, ap-
peared before the Commis-
sion on Thursday morning
and informed them that
there will be no more SHIP-
funded downpayment assis-
tance available in Dixie
County until July of next
year. Although the County
has tried to get CDBG funds
to help with housing needs
in the past, Dixie just didn't
have enough points to make
the cut.

However, Harris told the
Commission that a "neigh-
borhood stabilization pro-
gram" from CDBG is avail-
able that could fund run-
ning water lines out to CR
55A. The Board agreed to
host a workshop on Septem-
ber 16th in the County Com-
missioner's room at 3:00 for
the public to present ideas
for the grant money


Commissioner Troy John-
son was concerned about
Dixie residents and the des-
perate need for housing
money He asked, "What
about the people in the dis-
trict?"

Harris replied that "We're
not going to get CDBG for
.housing, we've proved that."
CDBG housing funds were
particularly useful in Dixie
as the only funds that can
be used on mobile homes.
Harris said, "The only thing
we can do with a trailer
with SHIP is destroy it."
Commissioner Johnson said
he was aware of the limita-
tions with SHIP funding,
saying "Believe nme.I stood
on a back porch last night
for three hours trying to ex-
plain that."

Solid Waste Coordinator Joe

mission set a soli
workshop for 4:00

Dr. Nobikov of Cross City
Dental and Dr. Martin of
Martin Orthodontics in
Chiefland spent a week in
August in Ecuador,
providing free dental
services to isolated In-
dian villages high up
in the Andes moun-
tains. Thetrip was
sponsored by the
Chiefland Rotary Club.

Dr. Nobikov's excite-
ment about the trip
was evident, and his
eyes sparkled as he de-
scribed the "absolutely
great country," that he
and Dr. Martin visited.
They brought every-
thing they needed with
them: suction, medi-
cines, and equipment, at
their own expense. They
worked in a clinic that was
actually a school, but that
looked more like a barn,
with wooden benches and
unpainted walls. Patients
waited in line, most of
whom have never seen a
dentist in their lives.


One little girl, maybe seven
dr eight years old, had mul-
'tiple abcesses and had to
have the teeth removed.

"She was very brave. She
tried not to cry She did
great," said Dr. Nobikov. He
explained that although
they had a Spanish-speak-

Spanish, but a native dialect

day night in the season
opening game at Cross City,
beating the visiting Hornets

Bears retaliated in four
plays when Roberts nailed
Duke Dawson with a fifteen
yard pass into the end zone

the extra point and the *
Bears pulled ahead 14 to 7.
On the kickoff the Bears de-
fensive line pushed the Hor-

point safety This put Dixie
ahead 16 to 7 at the end of
the first quarter.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


Was this an Al Gore protege?


Compiling a list consisting only of the whackos in the envi-
ronmental movement would require this entire page, upon
which you will certainly find far better things to read. How-
ever, one such type comes to mind in light of a news story
that appeared last week. His name is-excuse me, was
James J. Lee. A SWAT team ended his ongoing struggle
with reality after he took several hostages at--are you ready
for this? Discovery Channel headquarters!

Why would any environmentalist have an axe to grind with
Discovery Channel, or their affiliate, Animal Planet? I
watch these outlets because I'm interested in the sort of
wildlife you can't always find in the local saloons, and be-
cause the photography is at least as good as you'll find on
the Sports Illustrated calendar, they just need to get more
attractive models. I do get some laughs at the narrator seri-
ously intoning about how the male lion is concerned with
sustaining his genetic line when he fights his rival and
courts the lioness, when even most human males aren't
thinking that far ahead. But why in blazes would an envi-
ronmentalist object to projecting exceptional human intelli-
gence to a lustful animal prowling the jungles of Africa? I
thought that was the sort of propaganda the enviros liked
because it served to reinforce their conviction that the only
difference between us and other animals is that we walk on
our hind legs.

Most environmentalist misfits are relatively harmless inso-
far as immediate threats of physical violence are con-
cerned. Of course, we do have Greenpeace, and the whackos
who throw blood on women wearing fur coats. (I've often
wondered where they get the blood if they don't like killing
animals. Do they perhaps raid blood banks? Could it be that
some of them are vampires?) And then there are those who
firebomb research facilities where they experiment on ani-
mals. I read about one such facility where they (those in
charge of the place, not the enviros) get baboons drunk to
see how they act. That was not necessary. Drunk baboons
act exactly like sober baboons or drunk people. In any
event, last I heard, there have been no attacks on the cock-
tail lounge for sub-primate anthropoids, perhaps because
they're not adding to the carbon footprint.

It might help if we could appreciate what motivated James'
J. Lee to resort to the excessive measures that finally got
him sent to that big, carbon-free commune in the sky One
of the influences he mentioned before assuming room tem-
perature was Al Gore's award-winning film, "An Inconve-
nient Truth." This epic has been shown to school children
around the globe, who would undoubtedly rather have
watched something on the order of a Warner Bros. Car-
toon, which would have shown them how the swift-footed
Road Runner eludes the Wiley Coyote, who in turn reveals
lessons in the futility of attempting to elude the law of
gravity A bit of physics thrown in, along with the biology
lesson. Genuinely educational, however none of this ap-
pears in Gore's film, only drivel about how human activity
will destroy the planet in years to come if people don't stop
using up natural resources the way he does in his Ten-
nessee mountain mansion.

The late James J. Lee was apparently upset because he felt
that the Discovery Channel wasn't putting enough empha-
sis on how mankind is destroying the planet. In other
words, they hadn't abandoned every other aspect of their
programming in order to become a totally sold-out propa-
ganda outlet for the radical environmentalism preached
(but not practiced) by Al Gore and others of his ilk.

The establishment media noticed the hostage incident, then
moved on. Too bad. If the hostage taker who died defying
the law while trying to take over an "environmentally-
friendly" media outlet had been a good ol' boy who was up-
set because he couldn't hunt gators year round, the story
would still be making headlines.


Mr Prater: Like most women who tune in to the Discovery Channel,
all I could think when I heard of the incident was: BUT IS MIKE
ROWE OK??? He's sorta pretty to look at. :) -ed


y Kathy McKinney

o hoo! Hello? Mr. President? Barry? Here I
down, here! Under your nose! Can you
ee me now? How about it I climb up on top of
the teleprompter. There! Can you see me now?
Good. Because we need to have a chat, you and I. Why so de-
pressed? Economy got you down?

Who am I and how did I get in here? Well, I'm a friend of Mr.
Paine. He helped build this town, you know. I've been hang-
ing around since then, helping out when I can. Sure, I've
been out of pocket for the last year or two, but I'm back now.
You can call me Carmen. I guess you could call me Mrs.
Sense if you want to be all formal. I don't have many friends


in town anymore, but there are some people
who know me well enough to stand up for
me. Sometimes we get together at the mall
with my friends Sarah and Glenn and we
have a cup of tea. Not exactly your social
circle, I suppose, but I guess I've been "slum-
ming" with the common folk for so long I
don't get out much in high society anymore.

No! No! Don't call the Secret Service. I'm not
here to go all redneckjihad on you. I'm here
to help you. I hear you've been having some
problems with mid-term elections and poll
numbers and such. I know, I know, don't
start crying on me, you'll get your Armani
all wet. Well, honestly, you only have your-
self to blame, you know. What did you think
would happen when you turned everything
over to that lunatic Pelosi and her friends?
Yes, yes, I know. You thought you could just
play golf and vacation in the Hamptons and
that Nancy would handle things for you. Not
working out so well, is it? No, I don't have a
tissue, suck it up for a bit, this is important.


flnef laD


Like I told your friend Bill, "It's the economy, stupid." If you
can fix that, everything else will be peachy How? Oh, it's
easy First thing is, you're going to make like a housewife
and go on a budget. No more fancy plane trips to Spain. No
more cushy benefits for government employees. No more
payoffs to your playmates in the Unions. No more phony
"stimulus" packages. No more money for Acorn. Now, now,
don't turn on the waterworks again, it'll be fine. Just listen.;

All you have to do is pass the Fair Tax. No, not the "flat tax,"
that's not the real deal, it's a fake. The FAIR tax. I think it's
called H.R. 25 these days. It would solve all your problems!
Sure, sure, I know, lots of people you don't like are behind it,
but like Poomba says, "You've got to put your behind in your
past." We don't have time for all that partisan stuff right .
now. You've got to fix this mess and the
"I n~aruftnd Mtr Fair Tax will do it.


Congress Is considering a so-called
'fIat' tax system. How would Mls
work?" Answer: "If Congress were
to pass a 'flat' tax, you'd simply pay
a fixed percentage of your Income,
and you wouldn't have to fill out any
complIcated forms, and there would
be no loopholes for polltcally
connected groups, and normal
people would actually understand
the tax laws, and giant tfalkng
broccoli stalks would come around
and mow your lawn for free,
because Congress Is NOT going to
pass a flat tax, you pathetc fool."


We have to talk about your friends. Ralim and Van, and all
that crew you hung out with in college. Just like sophomore
year, when they talked you into that drunken panty raid
over 4t Phi Mu, they're steering you wrong now, dude. Re-
member how hungover you were the next day when you
woke up naked in the law library? That's what's wrong with
you now. You're hungover, and naked, but now the whole
world is laughing and pointing, and your boss Uncle Sam
can't have that. Sam has a reputation to maintain here. You
know how things are, some people are OK for hanging out
with on Saturday afternoon at the quad, but you gotta let
them go when you grow up and move on. And if you want to
keep your cushy job and the company plane, you're going to
have to grow up some, and quick. It's time to put on your
big-boy briefs and deal with this mess you've made.


THREE REASONS WHY AMENDMENT
4 IS A GOOD IDEA, BASED ON
YANKEETOWN'S EXPERIENCE

1. FOSTERS A SENSE Ol
COMMUNITY AND PER-
SONAL INVOLVEMENT

In Yankeetown, citizens
were shocked when they
found out local officials were
secretly supporting pro-
posed and clearly BAD devel-
opment. One official incred-
ibly had a land sales con-
tract with the developers
and even kept that fact se-
cret. Citizens became out-
raged, banded together and
managed to wrest control
back from the speculators'
friends, the local officials.
One result was town charter
amendments very similar to
Amendment 4. Another re-
sult was a new comprehen-
sive plan which attempts to
preserve the town's essence
and character, and which
earned a Citizen Planning
Initiative award from the
state Department of Commu-
nity Affairs.

Both the charter amend-
ments and the new compre-
hensive plan were, approved
by Yankeetown voters by a
two-to-one margin. Town
meetings where the plant
amendments were discussed
were packed with citizens, all
of which were allowed to pro-
vide input to the process. In
most cases today, citizens in
otler communities find out
about comprehensive plan
amendments when the bull-
dozers show up. Virtually no
one in Yankeetown is un-
aware of the comprehensive
plan amendments that were
proposed and they now all
know that they will have
their say in the future.


2. BRINGS ACCOUNTABILI-
TY TO POLITICIANS.
The founding fathers never
could have fathomed the con-
cept of professional politi-
cians becoming rich from
government service, at all
levels. While the concept is
likely not to go away, Florida
Hometown Democracy will
mitigate the problem.

Simply, without Amendment


It removes all the payroll taxes, which
will give business owners a chance to
catch their breath and hire new people.
It will bring investors from all over the
world. People will start opening facto-
ries and actually making stuff here
again. Small business will be able to
make a plan, to count on some stability,
instead of sitting in their offices, quak-
ing in fear at what you and Nancy will
cook up next to "soak the rich." You can
abolish the IRS and get all of those peo-
ple off of the government payroll and
into real jobs. Can you imagine the stat-
ue they'll erect for the President who
abolishes the IRS? You'd look good in
marble, don't you think? Yes, I know,
the ears will be a problem, but maybe
you can wear a hat.


-Dave Barry
Stop posing and checking out the mir-
ror, this is important. Just think about
the "little" people. Nobody will have to spend the year trying
to figure out how to avoid taxes or to keep records for tax-
es....it'll be on their receipt at Sam's Club. No more worries,
no more hassle, no more accountants, no more tax cheats.
No more April 15th. And my homeboy over atfairtax.org
tells me that most families will get a big check around $550
every month, to repay them:for the taxes they pay, up to the
poverty level. Every month!! Yes, the ignorant unwashed
masses love "free government money," don't they? This will
be huge! This could be the change we believed in!

Now, don't start posing for that statue yet, you've got work to
do first. Call my friends Mr. Ryan and Coburn up here to
help you, and that Pelosi chick, too, and her buddy Frank.
And order some pizza. It's going to be a long night.


4-type charter amendments, an unneeded subdivision that
future politicians in Yankee- destroys environmentally
town could have approved sensitive land.
comprehensive plan amend-


ments from which only they
benefit, and no one could
stop that.

There is no doubt that if
Amendment 4 passes, politi-
cians will think twice before
presenting amendments to
the voters that are clearly
bad for the community. The
voters will remember that at
election time. It is certainly
now true in Yankeetown.

Finally, under Amendment 4,
politicians will have a strong
incentive to inform the com-
munity about proposed com-
prehensive plan land use
amendments prior to their
appearing on the ballot.


3. SLAMS THE DOOR ON
BAD DEVELOPMENT.
Bad development is that
which benefits the few, such
as developers, lobbyists and
politicians via campaign con-
tributions. Florida has more
convicted politicians than
any other state, according to
the New York Times, and yes,
sometimes bribes come into
. play.

An example of BAD develop-
ment is anything which in-
creases sprawl and requires
taxpayer-funded infrastruc-
ture improvements, such as


The development proposed to
Yankeetown was a perfect ex-
ample of BAD development.

It's irrefutable that Florida's
natural environment is suf-
fering. The water supply is
at critical levels in many
parts of the state. Natural
springs are flowing at re-
duced rates or drying up.
What water is stilflowing
from our springs and down
our rivers and creeks is
clouded with algae because
of the Nitrogen and Phos-
phate levels. Mining leaves
behind dead bodies of toxic
water. All of this is docu-
mented and no reasonable
and objective person can dis-
agree.

If you draw a line from New
Port Richey through Ocala,
through the Villages, and
over to say Daytona ... and
throw a dart that lands any-
where south of that line....
where ever it lands, you will
see evidence of development
gone amuck, concrete and as-
phalt everywhere, sprawl re-
placing the natural environ-
ment. The only way to keep
the remaining unspoiled
parts of Florida from also go-
ing down that dismal road is
growth management with a
backbone. The evidence is
overwhelming that elected lo-


cal officials, the majority of
whom are critically depen-
dent on campaign contribu-
tions from the development
related industries and major
players, simply cannot and
do not show any backbone on
land use issues.

Good development is that
which enriches all of the peo-
ple. An example of good de-
velopment would be a new in-
dustry or company where the
business hires educated and
high-paid employees, is neu-
tral to the environment and
returns benefits to the com-
munity. Voters are actually
smart enough to know the
difference.

The overburdening and pol-
lution of critical resources is
traceable to poorly planned,
unsustainable development.
Florida's natural resources
have clearly been abused and
misused. Those resources
were what drew people to
Florida to begin with and we
must change those practices
that have damaged them.
Amendment 4 may not be
perfect but it is the only solu-
tion that has been offered. -
Certainly, no one can expect
the greedy, lobbyist-funded
politicians to do so.

keetown City Council member.

It was our first ride of the
season. We got up at 6:00 am,
fed the horses, and ourselves
too, and then I got the cooler
ready with food and drink for
the day, while Dave got water
and hay for the horses for
their day. As you know, there
is a lot to this "back in the .
saddle again", and don't for-
get the coggins! Coby and I
were ready to hit the trails
along with Dave and Sporty.
Our trail ride this week takes
us to Apex tail head in
Goethe Forest. It's a great
place to ride and our group
today of 10 riders are ready
to ride.

Today we met the Wildlife
Forest Ranger as we were get-
ting our horses saddled to
ride, he is checking our cog-
gins. Which is kind of like
checking your drivers licens-
es but that's okay with us we
are good to go. The officer
was a nice friendly guy and
he tells us that just this
morning he saw a gator on
the trail road and this gator
crossed the road to take a bite
out of his back bumper of
his truck. Oh my! Boy that's
just what I want to hear as I
get in the saddle with Coby!
Guess we will have to keep an
eye open when we get to that
point. Oh My indeed!

Ten riders mount up and
head out towards the trail.
We've decided to take the "or-
ange" trail today and that
way we'll be back in time for
lunch by high noon.

The trails are a luscious
green and plenty of room as
we head out by two's down
the trail. Coby tries to snatch
'iifimo flk'6f grass as 'we
head down the trail. I tell my
little sugar bear that he'll get
hay when we get back from
the ride as I want his full at-
tention, remember there's a
gator out here!

I suppose we were out on that
trail for about ten minutes
when we ran into a deluge of
water. Sporty snorted a bit
looking at the large lake in
front of him. I think this was
his first look at water on a
trail so he was not too sure -

what this was. One of our
riders, D H, came forward
and walked his horse right
into the water and around
the corner as the lake front
property continued for quite
a ways. It certainly was a lot
of water but Sporty got the
idea very quick that it was
okay and he was fine with the
water on the trails (there
were plenty spots) the rest of
the day (and don't think I
wasn't looking for gators. I
certainly was).

A while later we came to a
large tree that had fallen
across the path of our trail.
Crossing that was a lot of
fun. However, at the back of
our group of riders, one
horse decided he would not
cross that large thing lying in
his path. His pasture mate
followed his cue and also said
no, I don't think so! This led
Anna to the rescue. Anna and
her horse went back for the
two riders and hopped over
the log with ease as she swat-
ted the riders horse on the
rump, and jumped over the
log again which made the un-
decided horse follow her over
the log with his pasture mate
trailing close behind. Good
job Anna!

This mornings ride was in-,
deed fun. I was having a
grand time riding and talk-
ing to my fellow riders. The
forest was full of obstacles
but none that we could not
handle. I did keep my eyes
peeled for that gator but I
never saw him. We did see
one doe leapiig across our
trail ahead at one point with
the greatest of ease. As luck,
would have it I managed to go
thru two spider webs.and had
Sa spider land on me as
though he were hitching a
ride. I managed to knock him
silly and sent him flying in
another direction.

We all managed to stay with-
in sight of each other as we
traveled down the very spa-.
cious trails. It turned out to
be not too hot traveling
through the forest and I be-
lieve slooshing through all
the water that we encoun-
tered helped keep the horses
fairly cool. Between the wa-
ter crossings and the fallen
trees across our trails, this
was perfect training experi-
ences for our horses to make
them a better trail horse.
Dave's new horse Sporty did
exceptionally well on this his
first trail ride. Everyone en-
joyed the day's trailride and
you too could join us on the
trails. Contact us at
levy2@flahorse.com for infor-
mation on our club and rides.
Until next time........Happy
Trails!


FWC serves up bonus Gulf red snapper season

Anglers got some good news on Thursday as the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) agreed to re-
open the recreational harvest season for red snapper in Gulf
of Mexico state waters for eight straight three-day weekends
this fall. This action coincides with a proposed open season
for red snapper that is expected to be implemented in Gulf
federal waters off of Florida on the same dates.

"This is just what the doctor ordered and couldn't have come
at a better time to give a much-needed boost to our Gulf fish-
ing communities that have had a challenging summer, to say
the least, because of the Gulf oil spill," said FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto.

The regular recreational harvest season for red snapper in all
waters of the Gulf off Florida took place from June 1 until
July 24 this year. This season was set based on projections of
how many red snapper could be caught by recreational an-
glers without exceeding the annual harvest quota, which was
established to help rebuild overfished stocks so that anglers
can benefit from better red snapper fishing in the future.'

However, recreational fishing effort for Gulf red snapper by
private and charter boats was much less than anticipated be-
cause of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, which resulted
in fishing closures and cancelled fishing trips in federal and
state waters off parts of Florida's Gulf coast. Consequently,
the established Gulf recreational red snapper quota was not
met during the regular season, which means more fishing
days can be opened this year.

Anglers will be able to keep the current Gulf daily
recreational limit of two red snapper greater than 16 inches
total length per person on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays be-
ginning Oct. 1 and extending for eight consecutive weekends
through Sunday, Nov. 21.

FWC proposes changes to blue
crab rules

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) proposed a series of draft
rule amendments on Thursday
to modify blue crab regulations.
These.proposals include some
recommendations by the FWC's
Blue Crab Advisory Board,
which helps the Commission
manage Florida's blue crab fish-
ery, as well as some technical
blue crab amendments.

One proposed rule amendment
by the board would change the
six annual regional, 10-day blue
Scrab trap closures to occur every
other year. The January closure
to the harvest of blue crabs with
traps in the St. Johns River sys-
tem and the August closures in
Nassau' through Palm Beach
counties would occur in even-
numbered calendar years only.
The July closures in Broward
through Wakulla counties and
the January closure in Franklin
through Escambia counties
would occur in odd-numbered
calendar years only. This pro-
posed change would help focus
trap cleanup efforts in each re-
gion and lessen the economic im-
pact of the closures on individ-
ual crabbers.

Other board-proposed rule
-amendments would change the
blue crab license-endorsement
transfer window from Septem-
ber through December to May
through February to increase op-
portunities for crabbers to trans-
fer their endorsements to some-
one else and allow initial blue
crab trap tags to be ordered at
any time.

The FWC also is proposing tech-
nical rule amendments that ,
would allow qualified blue crab
harvesters to designate another
of their own vessels to be used
to temporarily pull blue crab
traps while their regular vessel
is repaired or replaced and clari-
fy that soft shell blue crab har-
Svesters may hold only two soft
shell endorsements at one time.


Facebook photos lead to arrest
of illegal hunters

Two Inverness residents were ar-
rested when an investigation un-
covered they had illegally taken
a deer and then posted the pho-
tos on Facebook.

William Andrew Buchanan
(DOB 08/26/89) and Tara Anne
Carver (DOB 09/06/82) were cit-
ed for possession of wildlife tak-
en illegally, according to investi-
gators from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC).

"FWC officers received informa-
tion that the photos had been
published on Facebook and in-
vestigated the tip," said Lt. Steve
Farmer, investigations supervi-
sor. "Investigators then inter-
viewed Buchanan and Carver."

Buchanan confirmed he was in
the photographs, helping skin
the deer. He also stated he used
his mother's truck to move the
deer when he received a call
from Carver, and he provided the
chain to hang the deer. However,
he wouldn't admit to shooting
the deer or being present when
the deer was killed, said Investi-
gator Jim Smith, lead investiga-
tor on the case.

"Carver said she published the
photographs on her Facebook
page and that the deer was killed
sometime in May," Smith said.

Carver blamed Buchanan for
killing the deer but confirmed
she had skinned it and stored
some of the meat in her uncle's
freezer.

"Fortunately for investigators,
pictures can say a thousand
words," Smith said. Farmer
said there was a third person in-
volved in the case, but he wasn't
charged because he was in coun-
ty jail awaiting transport to state
prison on multiple felony
charges. In a technologically ad-
vanced society, Internet websites
provide opportunities for the col-
lection of evidence when Flori-
da's wildlife is illegally killed.

During the second quarter the Bears added a field goal, but
the Hornets with a touchdown, are able to pull within five
points of the Bears lead.

The third quarter was all Dixie County. The Bear offense
scored at the five minute mark and the tough defensive line
held the Hornets scoreless. The Hornets fought back and
midway through the forth they scored a touch down despite
the Bear defenders. The Hornets attempted to tie score with
a two point conversion, but Kelby Lamar reached up and
blocked the pass denying the Hornets the points. On the
next series, Roberts pitched the ball out to Mike West who
rumbled close to 80 yards into the end zone. With the field
goal good the Bears had a comfortable lead with five min-
utes to play. The Hornets; in a last ditch effort, attempted to
pass their way down field to get away from the Dixie de-
fense, found themselves thwarted, when Wade Wilkerson
had a tipped pass dropped in his hands. Wilkerson ran 25
yards into home territory to score. The Bears wrap it up for
the Hornets 35 to 20.

Roberts attempted 10 passes and completed 7 for 116 yards
and two TD's. West carried the ball 12 times for 172 yards,
not bad for openers.

Coach Wilkerson told the team after the game "We beat a
good team, we made some mistakes because we are young,
but we played with heart and passion. Next week we need
to shut Williston down." The Bears looking to avenge a loss
from last year, will face the Red Devils of Williston, always
a tough rival, next week at home in Cross City. This should
prove to be a barn burner...GO BEARS!

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
on Thursday proposed a draft
rule that would raise the recre-
ational daily redfish bag limit
from one fish to two per person
in large areas of northern Flori-
da. The FWC also is proposing to
create three regional manage-
ment areas for redfish to better
target its management approach-
es for this popular Florida fish.
The FWC has strictly managed
redfish (also called red drum,
channel bass and red bass) for
more than 20 years to help re-
build overfished populations. A
2008 FWC stock assessment now
indicates that annual manage-
ment goals for redfish are consis-
tently being exceeded in areas of
northeastern and northwestern
Florida.
As a result, the FWC is proposing
establishment of three manage-
ment areas for redfish in Florida
(which are the same as estab-
lished management areas for
spotted seatrout). In all waters
in the northwest management
area (Escambia through Pasco
counties) and in the northeast
management area (Flagler
through Nassau counties), the
FWC proposal would raise the
daily recreational bag limit for
redfish from one fish to two. The
Commission also directed staff
to develop a possible redfish ves-
sel limit in areas where a two-
fish limit would apply The cur-
rent one-fish daily limit would
still apply in all waters in the
south management area (south of
Pasco and Flagler counties).
The FWC has scheduled a series
of workshops this fall to hear
what people think about its red-
fish proposals. Information re-

From COMMISSION, pg 1

Lamb continued, saying
that there will be a pre-con-
struction meeting on the
new distribution project,
that construction will start
by the "drop dead date" of
September 15th. He gave the
Commissioners a copy of
Suwannee's profit and loss
report, saying that he
"plans to present a final
budget for approval at the
next meeting. We plan to go
into next year with a bal-
anced budget, with no in-
crease in the water and sew-
er rates as they are now."

There will be a ground
breaking ceremony for the
distribution project on
Thursday, September 23rd
and a dedication of the wa-
ter treatment plant. Lamb
said that the treatment
plant has been complete for
some time and that "any
outstanding lawsuits with
contractors have finally
been put to rest."

He said that "Suwannee is
in the top three of the state
for drinking water," and
that "When this distribu-
tion system is done, Suwan-
nee will have premier wa-
ter."

Kay McAllister appeared to
update the Board on tourist
development issues. She
said that the recent Pure
Water Wilderness cleanup
project was a success, and
that "John Jenkins helped
with the lunch. He can veri-
fy that there was a lot of
trash picked up." She re-
minded Commissioenrs
about the paddline event on
the 18th and asked that the
County waive or lower
camping fees at parks for ca-
noes and kayaks to help pro-
mote the event. The Com-
mission agreed, except for
Commissioner Johnson,
who voted to change them at
regular rates.

Sheriff Hatcher appeared to'
ask the Commission to con-
sider an addition on to the
courthouse for his office,
saying that he "needs more
office space," and that he
has $174,000 in his budget
from impact fees that
should pay for the 37'x30'
addition. The addition will
have a private entrance for
staff only, and should ex-
tend to the sidewalk. Chair-
man Hunt said, "Let us
think on it," and the Board
agreed to consider the issue
later.

Phil Bishop of North Flori-
da Professional Services up-
dated-the Commission on
progress in Suwannee, say-
ing that the headers are in
and that it's "looking real
good." He said the Belly
Deep project is "getting
down to the final phases"
and asked if available funds
could be used to clean up
some of the drainage ditch-
es. Commissioner Johnson
said, "I can answer that one
for you with a great big
YES."

Bishop continued that there
has been "no word back
from FWC" on the boat
ramp application in Horse-
shoe and that he should
have word on the Continen-
tal Loop project in around
30 days. Bishop reminded
the Board of ongoing issues
with permitting the boat


ramp, saying that "They
shouldn't have any reason
not to issue a permit."

Commissioner Higginboth-
am requested that in re-
sponse to complaints from
poll workers that an interi-
or door be installed in the
hallway at the First District
Community center that will
allow outside workers to use
the restroom.

Tim Alexander reminded
the Board about the MBA
boot drive on Friday. He also
said that he is concerned
about the amount of water
that builds up on CR 349
south near the fire tower
during storms and that he
would like to get with DOT
and see if some sort of miti-
gation could be accom-
plished.

Alexander asked permis-
sion from the Board to ap-
prove a new policy to limit
use of county water buffa-
los for "emergency use" by
private homeowners to thir-
ty days. Apparently several
homeowners are abusing
the program and are not
making diligent efforts to
obtain new wells.

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy said that Doug Ander-
son, Scott Gantt, Charlotte
Lord, Marvin Hunt and
Frank Darabi have been ap-
pointed to the Old Town wa-
ter and sewer advisory com-
mittee.

Commissioner Higginboth-
am said that he attended the
North Central Florida Plan-
ning Council meeting re-
garding the proposed limita-
tion of "biomass"(i.e. tim-
ber) and that "There were
enough people there oppos-
ing it that they kicked out
the resolution." He also said
that work on the new prison
infrastructure-should be
started on November 1st
and done by December 2011.

Cassidy requested a motion
to put out requests for quali-
fications for engineering
services in order to "evalu-
ate other firms," in order to
"target firms with more spe-
cialized abilities.'' North
Florida Professional Ser-
vices currently provides en-
gineering services for the
county, but Frank Darabi of
Darabi & Associates has
been lobbying heavily in the
last few months for the spot.
Darabi was not present at
the meeting. Commission-
ers Edmonds, Higginboth-
am and Edmonds voted yes.
Commissioner Johnson vot-
ed no.

Cassidy asked for approval
for Jennie Sue Cunningham
to use the Women's Club
building for "stretch and
strengthen" classes for
county employees during
lunchtime a few days a '
week. Commissioner Mark
Hatch looked at the infor-
mation sheet and joked "It
says here when she did this
for the school, that she
brought a massage chair. I'd
be willing to test that out for
the county" The request
was approved, subject to
other groups that may have
reserved the building.

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison reminded the Board
that her contract will be up
on the 15th.

that it was my time. Now
Mr. Bookie Evans and Mr.
Paul Gainey will run for the
District 5 School Board seat
That will be decided on No-
vember 2nd in the general
election. I have three chil-
dren that are, have been,
and will be Dixie County
students in our school sys-
tem and I want what is in
the best interest of our chil-
dren and their education.
Throughout my entire cam-
paign, I have never once
concerned myself with who
I can help if elected'as a
school board member. We all
have to put our children and
their education as top prior-
ity.

That is why I'm publicly en-
dorsing Mr. Bookie Evans
for our next school board


of clinical experience in a lo-
cal health care facility The

Fall Poison Control Tips

The Fall season brings different
poisoning hazards, and with
children going back-to-school the
potential for different types of
accidental poisonings increases.
As the weather changes and
school starts, young children
will be spending more time in-
doors, often leading to the
exploration of the kitchen, med-
icine cabinets, garages and clos-
ets. Younger school age children
may now come in contact with
various glues, inks, crayons,
paints, felt tip markers, chalk-
board cleaners, and other poten-
tially toxic arts and craft sup
Likewise, as the weather gets
cooler, we begin using gas or oil
furnaces, kerosene heaters, or
other methods to heat our
homes. All devices of this type
should be inspected for proper
ventilation and.operation follow-
ing the summer layover as any
obstruction (i.e. bird or animal
next) made in the flue can quick-
ly cause a backup of carbon
monoxide into the home. As car-
bon monoxide is very dangerous,
this process, as well as the instal-
lation of a carbon monoxide
monitor can save your family.
Never use charcoal grills or gas
stoves to heat your home.
Carbon monoxide, a colorless
and odorless and very toxic gas,
may be produced by car and
truck exhaust leaks, malfunc-
tioning furnaces and gas fueled
appliances, wood stoves, gas op-
erated hot water heaters or by
burning charcoal indoors.
Symptoms may resemble the flu,
and include fatigue, sleepiness,
headache, nausea and vomiting.
.Car antifreeze has a sweet taste
and children and pets may
quickly drink antifreeze in large
amounts. A small ingestion of
even a teaspoonful can potential-
ly cause serious illness and
death.
Cough and cold medications are
often pleasant tasting; thus, chil-
dren may potentially drink large
amounts. These medications
may also contain cough suppres-
sants, decongestants or antihist-
amines, which can cause,agita-
tion or drowsiness ina child.
Some of these medications con-
tain aspirin, acetaminophen, or
alcohol. Large ingestions of
aspirin can cause an upset stom-
ach, sleepiness, nausea, vomit-
ing, thinning of the blood and
seizures. Acetaminophen
causes nausea, vomiting, and liv-
er damage if taken in excess.


Lastly, alcohol may cause drunk-
enness, low blood sugar
levels or seizures in children.
Chewable vitamins are often
multi-flavored and colorful.
Many vitamin formulations con-
tain Iron, which can be
dangerous if ingested in large
amounts. Early symptoms in-
clude upset stomach, nausea and
vomiting.
Plants can be,potentially toxic,
too. Symptoms include mild eye,
mouth, skin irritation and an
upset stomach. The
severity of the symptoms will
depend upon the type and
Amount of the plant ingested.
Taking the following
precautions can help reduce poi-
sonings:
* Learn and label the names of
plants in and around your home.
* If unable to identify a plant, a
small clipping can be taken to a
local nursery for identification.
* Raking and burning certain
leaves/plants can be poisonous.
* During the Fall season, berries
may fall to the ground increas-
ing the potential for a child to in-
gest the berries.
Poison Center
For poisoning emergencies or
for poisoning related questions,
call the Poison Information Cen-
ter toll free 24 hours a
day, at 1-800-222-1222.

The Quilters met Thursday, Sept 2 at
the Levy County Quilt Museum. It
was a Quilt show day Lois has fin-
ished our Rose Quilt and now we de-
cide what we want to do with it.
Frances Hill brought in quilt tops
and quilts that were done by her
grandmother and great grandmother.
Alice Mae has painted a large quilt
top that will be finished later. B. J.
has finished a motorcycle quilt and it
was a work of art. We had a great day.
We want to apologize for the wrong name we put in last week. We
said the ladies were from the Busy bee quilters but they were from
the Oak Run Quilters from Ocala. Forgive us.
Greg and seven boys were out Monday and got the porch cleaned,
put clean cloths on the tables, fertilized and watered the plants and
now the porch looks great. They really do a great job for us. Thanks

On Saturday evening, a 2006
Chevy pickup driven by
Garland Manning of New

Manning was charged with
careless driving. No injuries
were reported.

More serious injuries were

Association announces
"John Williams" District

In honor of former DCHS of-

Williams, a new award has
been announced by the Florida
Coaches Association. Execu-
tive Director, Shelton Crews
commented: "This award has
my blessings. I will forward
the information on the the Dis-
trict 7 football chairman when
they have the District 7 All
Star meeting in late October. I
added more to the criteria part
of it and I have attached the
changed version. Reading the
bio brought back memories,
growing up in Chiefland and
attending UF games back then,
I remember the kick in the
LSU game. My aunt and uncle
use to take me to the UF games
and we were supposed to be at
that one but because of the
rain we chose to listen to in on
the radio sitting in the Sears
parking lot of the old
Gainesville Mall. He has an
amazing story and we are glad
we can do this for him and for
some deserving young man. I
am excited about this award
and I think District will be
too. Tell John how much we
appreciate giving us the oppor-
tunity to participate in this."

was to the railroad, my
brothers Curtis, Eddie and...
I would get in a wash-tub and
float everywhere, the Fla
Times Union had taken a pic-
ture of Curtis in the tub
when trucks would come
down the road it would make
water come on our
porch,there was a bunch of
high school boys in a high
pickup truck,(won't call any
names) they were having fun
driving fast and making
waves of water come in our
houses, until Daddy gave
them a tongue-lashing on our
end and Uncle Frank Bennett
got his shotgun out on his
end, believe we wasn't both-

Storm of the Century for
sure! It was horrible! We had
a toddler and a newborn. It
sounded like the end of the
world. There was no warning
and we weren't prepared. We
were in First District so we
didn't get the worst but so
many people were affected.
Scary.

Tonya Patterson March 13,
1993. I forget the name of the
storm, but everyone called it
the storm of the century

Autumn Cowger Elmore
Hurricane what's its name
from 6 years ago. We had just
moved to Dixie and it was
our first time ever living in a
mobile home and then hav-
ing to be shaken about by the
winds and pray to God that a
tree didn't fall and crush us
like a soda can!!

Marie Hunt I can't remem-
ber the name or date, but it
was years ago when the one
sat out in the gulf for days,
we stayed at the church the
whole time and then on Mon-
day when it left we went to
Shired Island just to get out-
side, and there was a lot of
pelicans on the beach, and
we fed them mullet, they
were starving.

Dawn Skinner Hart Hurri-
cane Dennis, July 2005. I just
brought home #3, he devel-
ope jaundice and I had to
make the decision how im-
portant is was to trek back to
Gainesville. (Hey, Dawn, Ire-

uated to my house from school
because you couldn't go back

ter leaving la crosse (near

Matt Davis The three that
came through in
'05.......hansel, grettle, and
whatever the other one was.
Why do I remember it/them.
Cbs I worked 96 straight
hours, only being allowed to
change/shower twice, shar-
ing the same living quarters
with 5 other people, going to
the middle of the hammock
to transport needy citizens to
the "shelter" aka the OTES
lunch room.
I won't lie, I miss working in
EMS, but this was one of
those "not fun at the time but
builded character"
times.........On the other
hand, I found the answer to
one of life's grand quesitons:
"Can a man live on hard can-
dy, Cherry coke, and pringles
for five days?" (Answer to
Matt:yes. As long as the
Pringles are original flavor-

0106 'Will Vroolh
A young woman brought her fiance home to meet her par-
ents.After dinner,her mother told her father to find out about
the young man.

The father invited the fiance to his study for a talk.
'So what are your plans?' the father asked the young man.

'I am a biblical scholar,' he replied.

'A Biblical scholar.Hmmm,' the father said. 'Admirable,but
what will you do to provide a nice house for my daughter to
live in?'

'I will study,' the young man replied, 'and God will provide for
us.'

'And how will you buy her a beautiful engagement ring,such
as she deserves?' asked the father.

'I will concentrate on my studies,' the young man replied,'God
will provide for us.'

'And children?' asked the father. 'How will you support chil-
dren?'

'Don't worry, sir, God will provide,' replied the fiance.

The conversation proceeded like this, and each time the fa-
.ther questioned, the young idealist insisted that God would
provide.

Later, the mother asked, 'How did it go, Honey?'

The father answered, 'He has no job and no plans, and he
thinks I'm God!'


FIRST BAPTIST OF STEINHATCHEE

# Praise our HEAVENLY FA-
THER, we had a total of 5
people saved after the "dou-
ble youth sermons",
preached by Timothy Holden
and Dustin Logan last Sun-
day! There were 3 young peo-
.ple and 2 adults, giving their
life to the LORD! We are so.
proud they chose "a new
life"! All will be baptized at a
later date! Thank you Dustin
and Timothy for those heart
felt messages from GOD! We
are praying for Pastor Hold-
en as he has a "bug"! We miss
him, and we are sending him
lots of love, prayers, hugs,
rest and smiles We are
proud to see the Osteens
back! We sure do miss you-
all, when you are not here!
Our special music was Harry
Gatlin, singing "Just To
Know YOU, Love Me, LORD".
Also a trio consisting of
Sarah Holden, Brent Hoff-
man and Leon Holden
singing "Please Forgive Me".
Thank you for sharing the
talents GOD has given each
of you!

# On our Labor Day Sunday
we were blessed by Pastor
Curtis White from Statesvil-
lle, Georgia! He and his wife
Judy and children came
down to do the Baby Dedica-
tion for their little grand-
daughter, Cheyenne Holden.
Pastor Holden did the Baby
Dedication for their grand-
son little Quade! Isn't the
proud parents; Leon and
Brittany Holden blessed to
have their fathers dedicate
both their children to the
LORD! Leon and Brit have a
responsibility and a duty as
their parents to raise them
in church and teach them to
honor and serve GOD! Pastor
White has already prayed for
Cheyenne's Salvation at an
age that she fully under-
stands the meaning of what
it is to become a Christian
and choose to put GOD first
in her life. He prayed for her
to find a GODly man, to be a
helper in their walk down


the path of life together. So
readers please pray for all
our young people and our
youth that the devil will not
destroy their lives with the
sins of the world! JUST A
THOUGHT: Children
brought up in church... are
seldom brought up in court!
Where are your children
headed? We need to have a
burden for them to follow
GOD'S path... not satans!
# Kids, Awana is off with a
great start! Come every
Wednesday at 6:30! Remem-
ber call the church if you
need a ride! We'll be looking
for you!

# Now that we have gone
"Back to School", this Sunday
(12th) is a National "Back To
Church" Sunday! Comejoin
us....because JESUS died for
our sins, friend! HE suf-
fered, bled and died on that
cross for you and me! 1 cross
+ 3 nails 4 given!
Come join us for those
friendly hand shakes, happy
smiles and some GOD filled
hugs! Sandy Coleman

HO I FIELD.
ELC


WHO IS JASON HOLIFIELD?
I am a motivated, business-minded family
man who cares about the people of Dixie
County. I'm married to Stephanie Leon
Holifield and we have 3 children Evan(5)
,Grant (4) and Anna (2).


WHAT DO IDO?
I own and operate Holifield Bail Bonds
and am president of a Florida Corpora-
tion, Farm Land Properties, Inc. This
business helps absentee land owners man-
age large tracts of land in North Central
Florida. I have partnerships in growing
crops on my property. I also own land and
properties and work very hard to
provide for my family. I am debt free.


WHYDO I WANT THE JOB OF COUNTY COMMISSIONER? I care about the people of
Dixie County. I want our county to be all it can be for us and our children. I want to be a part
of the answer for our county's future I have thought about entering county politics for a very
long time and believe that I can help now.

WHAT CAN IDO DIFFERENTLY?

#1) I would have more "town hall meetings". I will advertise these meetings in advance and
citizens will have a chance to speak their minds.

#2) I will stay humble and work hard to stay tuned-in to the people's needs. I will take time to
listen and hear people's concerns. We need to make decisions based on what the people want.
The only way to know how the public feels is to stay in touch with the people.

#3) I will be conservative in spending the
County's money and managing the County
V O T E budget. I will not allow our tax dollars to be
NOVEMBER 2 squandered.


Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Respectively submitted,

Be anyone's yes man.

Be intimidated by other board members or

Making This Right

Cleanup

Restoration

Health and Safety

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the
beginning of our work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup
in the Gulf and that includes keeping you informed.

Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet.
We have been working with impacted communities since day one.

Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is
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 1.20,000 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 10,000 jobs 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.
