Shoot and Shovel:
no charges filed

On the afternoon of Septem-
ber 17, 2010, Sheriff's
deputies responded to a resi-
dence off of NE 197th Av-
enue in Old Town in refer-
ence to a disturbance involv-
ing gunshots. Upon arrival,
the caller stated that some
unknown white male came
to his house and knocked on
the door. When he answered
the door the man tried to
grab him and he was able to
shove him away During
this altercation, the man
was making threats toward
the caller and the two of
them continued with a brief
altercation at which point
the white male grabbed a
shovel and attempted to hit
the caller with it. The caller
was able to take the shovel
from the man and at that
point struck him on the left
side of the head causing a
portion of his left ear to be
severed. The white male
continued to make threats
toward the caller and at this
point the caller armed him-
self with-a handgun and
fired three shots to warn the
man away from his resi-
dence.

The Sheriff's Office re-
ceived a second call from a
home on NE 538 Avenue.
This caller stated that there
was a man at his residence
that had been shot in the
ear. When Sheriff's
deputies arrived at the sec-
ond scene they made contact
with the white male and dis-
covered that these injuries
did in fact appear to be from
the trauma associated with
the shovel strike and not
from a gunshot wound. Dur-
ing the course of the investi-
gation, both parties declined
to pursue any further inves-
tigation and declined prose-
cution in any manner.

Blue Wave Wipeout


by John Kelley

The Dixie County Bears
lost to the PK Yonge Blue
Wave last Friday night in
Gainesville 20 to 6 in a
heated battle. The Blue
Wave got on the board first
midway through the first
quarter using a series of
short pass plays to move
down the sandy, grassless
field. The Bears blocked
the extra point attempt al-
lowing the Wave only a six
point lead. Both teams
struggled through the first
quarter trying to gain an
advantage which finally
came at the start of the
second quarter. The Wave
maneuvered downfield
eluding the Dixie defense
to score, and added the ex-
tra point pulling ahead 13
to 0. On the kick off, stand
out running back Mike
West bobbled the ball
which was recovered by
freshman Kiandre Hope.
West was stymied all night
by the Wave defense hold-
ing him to the least
amount of yardage this
year. The Wave scored
again seconds before the
half, sending the Bears out
at half time twenty points
in the hole. The Bears came
out charged up for the sec-
ond half wasting no time in
attacking the Wave. Junior
Washington stripped the
ball from the Wave on their
first possession, shooting in


for a touchdown. The field
goal attempted was thwart-
ed so the Bears had to settle
for six, unfortunately this
was the only points the
Bears were able to produce
for the night. Next week the
Bears start their district


trek traveling across the riv-
er to tackle the Trenton
Tigers. Trenton coming off
a win to county rival Bell
high will certainly be a
challenge for the Bears but,
the Bears will be ready
GO BEARS!


Slow boat through Dixie


Paddlers from all over the area flocked to Dixie County this week to enjoy the natural wa-
ters in Suwannee, Horseshoe and Steinhatchee. Kayakers will camp in local parks, and en-
joy dinners with the community and lectures on local wildlife. The event is part of the on-
going promotion of Dixie County's rivers and coastlines to "eco-tourists."


A play to die for


At Thursday evening's
County Commission meet-
ing, the proposed Union
contract was tabled, but the
Commission agreed to ap-
prove a $750 bonus for Coun-
ty employees. Part-time em-
ployees will receive a pro-
rated percentage bonus. At
a workshop on Tuesday af-
ternoon, a $5000 raise was
approved for County Attor-
ney Jennifer Ellison, which
will bring her salary up to
$70,000 per year.

Nancy Neely appeared to
ask for help with a water
problem at her home off of
Horseshoe Road caused by
bad drainage in the right of
way She said, "The water
comes right back up to my
front door." Chairnan Hunt
said, "We'll address your sit-
uation within the next few
days. We were at the road
department this morning,
and as soon as the machine
is done where it is we'll
move it out there."

Phil Bishop of North Flori-
da Professional Services up-
dated the Board on ongoing
.projects. He said the Suwan-
nee culvert project "is in
pretty good shape for next
week. We'll be in compli-
ance. We've probably got an-
other two weeks down there.
It really turned out nice."
He said the Belly Deep pro-


What started as a burglary
and simple battery com-
plaint Fri-
day morning
has landed
lone brother
in jail and
on multiple .
charges and "
another fac-
ing pending
charges.
Friday
morning
Sheriff's
deputies re-
sponded to a
residence on NE 389 Avenue
in reference to a domestic
dispute involving allega-
tions of burglary and bat-
tery After receiving this
complaint, the deputy went
to the suspect's mother's
residence to question him.
During this time, the sus-
pect, George Patterson, was
told he was under arrest.
When Patterson resisted the
deputy gave chase and dur-
ing this time pulled his ser-
vice weapon due-tb Patter-
son having had a pocket-
knife our in his possession.
As this was occurring, Pat-
terson's brother, Jason Pat-
terson yelled at the deputy
for pulling his weapon and
stated that he was going to
get his. The deputy then di-
verted his attention away
from George who was flee-
ing on foot and gave chase
to Jason who was at this
point running toward the
home.. As the deputy


ject is "Winding down...and
will probably take another
ten days," and that the air-
port project has "at least an-
other two weeks worth of
work" to be done. He said
he's waiting on a response
from DEP on the Horseshoe
Boat Ramp permits, which
should be in by September
30th. He told the Board that
the Gornto showers will be
added to the end of existing
bath houses due to permit-
ting problems with DEP, and
that this should, "take care
of their issues."

Charlie Hauder from
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District presented
the Board with the annual
check that offsets Dixie's
loss in property taxes
caused by the SRWMD's
land purchasing program.
Chairman Hunt was happy
to accept the check, saying,
"We appreciate ya'll step-.
ping forward with this."

Building and Zoning official
John Jenkins told the Board
that his department has
purchased pre-engineered
pole barn plans so that resi-
dents don't have to hire an
engineer to build barns, as
long as they agree to build
according to the plans.
Plans can be picked up at
the Zoning department.
See COMMISSION, pg 7


chased Jason on foot, he did
not enter the home but in-
stead ran behind the home
and over a
fence into a
Wooded area
-. behind the res-
idence. The
4 deputy then re-
turned to his
Patrol car and
requested as-
sistance from
Additional offi-
cers.
A short
person time later, offi-
cers from the
Cross City Police Depart-
ment and Sheriff's Office
arrived and established a
perimeter on the area in
which the Patterson fled.
The K-9 Team from Cross
City Correctional respond-
ed and was able to track
through the wooded area to
a neighboring subdivision.
It was during this that they
realized one of the suspects
had back tracked and was
returning back to the resi-
dence. A subsequent search
of the residence resulted in
the arrest of George Patter-
son on multiple charges.
Patterson has been charged
with: Burglary of a
Dwelling, Battery and Re-
sisting an Officer.
At this time a
sworn complaint has been
filed with the State's Attor-
ney Office charging Jason
Patterson with Assault on a
Law Enforcement Officer
and Resisting an Officer.

Hillary fires the opening

salvo

Maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself, but I
thought I heard the first shot to be fired in the 2012 De-
mocratic primary, and here it is not even mid-term
election day yet. It was not all that loud or long, but it
was at least enough to hint that there was going to be
something of a contest for the party's presidential
nomination in another couple of years.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was ad-
dressing a meeting of the Council onForeign Rela-
tions (long a target of the John Birch Society and oth-
er hard-core conservatives), and was asked for her
views on the country's spiraling national debt. She
replied that it could weaken us internationally to the
point of actually constituting a national security
threat. Her next move was to fall back on President
Obama's favorite straw man, blaming the "previous ad-
ministration." From here, that sounded rather like she
was hedging her bets.

Congressional Democrats, who were delighted to ride
in on Barack Obama's coattails two years ago, are
telling the President not to bother coming to their turf
with endorsements, and those who voted for his un-
popular health care measures are making no mention
of that in their campaign speeches. What a difference
a couple of years makes! I'm hearing rumors that the
party will be withholding the customary bankrolling
from districts wherein it looks hopeless in order to
funnel more finance into contested districts where
they still have a chance. In other words, they're willing
to sacrifice a few marginal members in hopes of main-
taining at least a slim majority in the House of Repre-
sentatives. I'm sure the reluctant reps who Went along
with Pelosi's agenda feel honored to have been able to
make the sacrifice for the good of The Party

Senate Democrats could also be looking at hard times,
however only a third of that body comes up for ap-
proval every two years, making a GOP slam-dunk less
likely The Senate has to approve judicial nominations,
however Obama has already made two bad choices, re-
placing one of Clinton's and one of Bush the elder's on
the Supreme Court, and Anthony Kennedy has indicat-
ed he'll stick it out till 2013 to avoid a catastrophe.
Thus, the House of Representatives shapes up as the
must crucial for Democrats, as that's where Obama's
Spending splurges will have to be approved before they
can go any further.

If the Democrats lose even one house of Congress this
year, Obama's entire agenda could be on indefinite
hold, and he could be a severely weakened candidate
for re-election in 2012, which means he could be vul-
nerable to a challenge within his own party And even
if his party retains both houses of Congress, chances
' are his agenda and what it will continue doing to the
economy won't be any more popular with the voters
than it is today; and by then, blaming Bush will have
gotten to sound even more absurd than it already has.
Either way President Obama looks to be vulnerable in
2012, and Hillary shapes up as someone well-positioned
to replace him on the party's ticket.

If Hillary does seek her party's nomination in 2012,
she will not have to,"lean left" to get nominated, be-
cause too much left-leaning will be Obama's weakness,
and even if he decides not to run (not likely), it will be
perceived as the party's weakness. In this situation,
she will have no problem coming across as a moderate,
and that could leave her in decent shape in the general
election.

At this point, it's looking like Hillary Clinton is just
testing the waters, but you can be sure she'll go for the
big one that got away in '08 if it looks like the opportu-
nity is there.


Yo, ho, yo, ho...A pirate's life for me!


by Kathy McKinney

'As to hanging, it is no great hardship. For
ere it not for that,.every cowardly fellow
would turn pirate and so unfit the sea, that
en of courage must starve." (Mary Read, a
real pirate who sailed with Calico Jack)

I'm sure you're asking yourself, what's with all the pirate
stuff? Well, as I sit here writing this, it's Sunday, my 6th fa-
vorite holiday, "National Talk Like a Pirate Day" Yes, it's sil-
ly, and pointless, and that's why I like it. I used to love Hal-
loween, when it was silly and pointless but Wal-Mart decid-
ed there was big money in selling plastic skeletons and card-
board coffins and sucked all the joy out of it for me.


Anyway, being in a somewhat scurvy state
o'mind, I pulled out my new best friend,
my Kindle, and loaded up on some free pi-
rate books. For those. of you who don't
keep up with the new electronic toys on
the market, a Kindle is....well, it's like a
complete library in something about the
size of a paperback book and as thin as a
pencil. It's heaven for bookworms. The
price on them finally dropped to the point
to justify buying myself one, and I have to
tell you, it's probably the best $138 I've ever
spent in my life. You don't have to buy the
Kindle to get the books for free. Amazon
gives the software aware for computers,
too, but I computer screens are rough on
my eyes. The Kindle uses a screen that
looks like paper. It's awesome.


There's something satisfying about browsing through old
books, and the Kindle makes it easy, free, and you don'thave
that funky old book mildew smell, either. I've downloaded
piles and piles of books that I wouldn't have spent money
on, but that turned out to be fascinating. Today I picked up
The Life, Adventures and Piracies of the Famous Captain
Singleton by Daniel Defoe, who you may remember wrote
Robinson Crusoe. Nobody ever heard of Captain Singleton,
but so far, it's a rousing good pirate story. (Is there any other
kind?) I also picked up Piracy off the Florida Coast and Else-
where by S.A., a first-hand account of being captured and
robbed by pirates somewhere around Key West back in the
1800's, I think.

Have you read G,A. Henty? He wrote 99 adventure novels for
boys with historical themes back in the late 19th century.

I can sit on my couch, surf the Amazon.com Kindle store
and choose from the best books Western Civilization has to
offer, for free. (Since most of the really good stuff is out of
copyright.) My Kindle can hold 3,500 books all at one time. I
don't have to delete Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility be-
cause I've decided to read Trollope's The Claverings. I can
walk around with everything Shakespeare ever penned in
my pocket. I can carry War and Peace and The Oxford Eng-
lish Dictionary around without back strain. I can have them
all, at my beck and call, all at once, and if my eyes get tired,
I can plug in my headphones and the Kindle will read the
book to me. (Cue the angelic choir.) Best. Gadget. Ever.


Lots of homeschoolers are reviving his
work because it's educational, and is de-
signed to keep. a wiggly boy's interest. I
downloaded Captain Brand of the Cen-
tipede:A Pirate of Eminence in the West
Indes, His Loves And Exploits, Together
With Some Account Of The Singular
Manner By Which He Departed This Life
this morning. (Whew! What a title!
They just don't make book titles like
that anymore!)


Cawz v, You can't celebrate National Talk Like
A Pirate Day without Blackbeard, so of
course I picked up Blackbeard, or the'
-- Pirate of Roanake by Benjamin Barker.
To round out my pirate collection; I got
A Pirate of the Caribbees by Harry
Collingwood, The Pirate Woman by Ayl-
ward Edward, and Pirates by Charles Johnson. I also
snagged Moby Dick and a baker's dozen of other non-pirate
books while I was browsing. I could have gotten dozens
more,enough to keep me reading for a year, just in the pirate
category, and without spending a dime. This is truly a won-
derful time to be alive--and a bookworm.

Sure, you can get the latest bestsellers and teen vampire
books if you don't mind paying $9.99 for them, but like my
swashbuckling heroes, I prefer to dig for my treasure in ex-
otic ports of call, and without shelling out any of my trea-
sure. Avast ye, booklubbers. Get ye to Amazon and load up
yer holds with literary cargo. Arrrrrr!

It was a beautiful sunny day for
a trail ride. Not too hot which
made a very pleasant morning.
Certainly nice enough weather
for Dave and I to go on a great
trail ride with a few of our
good friends.

Our trail hosts, Greg and
Katherine McCandless, led us
onward and showed us some of
the most amazing trails. I was
certainly taking mental pic-
tures all the way as we headed
down the #10 trail, and I was
most definitely wishing I had
packed a camera! With the
weather just about as perfect as
it could get. Coby and I, along
with Dave and Sporty headed
off through the trails at Cedar
Key Scrub. This was the second
time I had the pleasure of rid-
ing at Cedar Key Scrub. It did
seem like such a nice place to
ride, little did I know I had only
scratched the surface of the
trails ahead..As we rode further
and further into the scrub I felt
the gentle breeze on my face as
the sound of the palmetto's and
tree branches rubbed together.
Isn't it funny how nature has
it's own orchestra with the
birds as backup vocals. Perhaps
there was a woodpecker or two
this morning keeping perfect
time in rhythm. From where we
stood the scene was stunning.
Framed with oaks, moss and
palmettos, it took me a full mo-


ment to take it all in and recov-
er from that heavenly sight
that nature had produced. It
was a breathtaking trail ride.

All the way down this trail it
was becoming more and more
beautiful with each and every
step we took. Horses gently
snorting as they crunched the
ground beneath our feet. Look-
ing overhead was a canopy of
various shades of green with
the sun filtering through, spot
lighting and glittering this way
and that. We did encounter wa-
ter on the trails and a few ob-
stacles to cross like a bridge
and a log or two. Suddenly,
there it was; the end of the
trail and what could be the be-
ginning of an entirely new ad-
venture.

The McCandless'es invited us
to come to their place for
lunch,
a mere 2 miles as the crow
flies. They have a beautiful 40
acre ranch and it allowed us to
let our horses rest in their pad-
dock. We had a bite of lunch
and good conversation in air
conditioned comfort. We really
enjoyed their company and look
forward to our next ride at
Cedar Key Scrub. If you like
trail riding, I would-highly
recommend to each of you the
#7 to #10 trail and while you
are there absorb the beautiful
sights around you. If you like
trail riding contact us at
levy2@flahorse.com for infor-
mation on our club and rides.

Until next time........Happy
Trails!

JV Bears Drop One
To Newberry
Panthers

by John Kelley

The JV team lost a
close, hard fought game
to Newberry 26-18 last
Thursday at home. "We
knew it was gonna be
fight, but we didn't quit,
and we played tough
football right to the
end", said Coach PJ
Hope. The Bears got off
to a rough start allow-
ing the Panthers to
score late in the first
quarter, but then struck
back on a two yard touch
down hand off play from
Quarterback Mikell Carter
to Shaquail Pollack.

The Panthers block the con-
version so the Bears settled
for tying the score at the
buzzer. The Bears, getting
cranked up recover a fum-
ble (JoQuail McDowell),.
and convert it for six points
on a Carter to Shaquail
Mitchem, cross field play
into the end zone. The Pan-
thers stop the conversion
but the Bears pull ahead 12
to 6. Half way through the
second the Panthers add
eight points to the score-
board pulling ahead of the
Bears 14-12. The Panthers
add another touch down at
the start of the second half,

Rangers Tame Tigers
by John Kelley

The Ruth Rains Rangers
took the Lake Butler Tigers
to task last week beating
them 36 to 20 in a heated
home game played in Cross
City. The Rangers had first
possession and scored in six
plays with
James Bow-
ers provid-
ing the run
into the end S
zone. The
Rangers
then recov-
ered a fum-
ble from the
Tigers on
the first
Tiger posses-
sion convert-
ing it into
another Bow- .,
er driven
score. The
extra point
conversion
by James Horsley put the
Rangers ahead 14-0 late in
the first quarter. The Tigers,
in the last seconds of the
first, intercepted a Ranger
pass for their first six points
of the night. Trey Simmons
picked up the on side kick
from the Tigers to start the
second quarter and five plays
later Bowers added six more
to the Ranger's plate making
the score 20-6. On the kick off
James Horsley recovers the
Ranger kick but, the Rangers
give it away. on a fumble,

Lake Butler, 28-6. The Tigers
hold a small rally mid-way

State Road 349

Improvements to
Begin

A Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) pro-
ject along 15.5 miles of State
Road (S.R.) 349 in Dixie
County is scheduled to begin
Monday, Sept. 27. The project
begins at U.S. 19 in Old Town
and ends at the Lafayette
County line, where it will
complete the resurfacing and
widening of S.R. 349 through
Dixie and Lafayette counties.
Work includes removing the
top layer of pavement and re-
placing it with new asphalt,
adding five-foot paved shoul-
ders on both sides of the
road and replacing drainage
pipes beneath some drive-
ways. A center turn lane
will be added at County Road
(C.R.) 353 and a left turn lane
will be added at Spillers
Highway (Northeast 389th
Avenue).


FLORIDA FARM CREDIT MERGER
PROPOSED
The Board of Directors of
Farm Credit of North Flori-
da, Farm Credit of South-
west Florida and Farm Cred-
it of South Florida are pur-
suing a merger.

The associations have en-
tered a formal agreement
outlined in a Letter of Intent
to Merge. This is the initial
step in collecting, analyzing
and providing information
regarding the merger's ad-
vantages and disadvantages.
Farm Credit's cooperative
structure allows its' mem-
bers to have the final vote of
approval through a proxy
mail voting process.
The AgFirst Farm Credit
Bank recently approved the
merger after reviewing dis-
closure materials from all as-


Crews are expected to begin
removing and replacing the
asphalt and building the
shoulders. During construc-
tion, motorists should expect
weekday lane closures after
8:30 a.m. To avoid oncoming
traffic during lane closures,
motorists entering S.R. 349
from side streets and drive-
way should watch for vehi-
cles heading in the same di-
rection before pulling out be-
hind them.

Anderson Columbia Compa-
ny of Lake City has been
hired by FDOT to complete
the $5.3million project in
about six months. Between
2,000 and 5,000 vehicles travel
this road each day, which
was last resurfaced in 1990.
For more information on this
project, contact the Public In-
formation Office at 800-475-
0044 or
lkwindham@pbsj.com. For
more information on FDOT
projects on Northeast Flori-
da roads, please visit

sociations. The Farm Credit
Administration (FCA) is re-
viewing the disclosure mate-
rials and will announce
their decision mid October.
Once FCA's approval is re-
ceived, appropriate disclo-
sure materials will be mailed
to all voting stockholders,
with the merger being effec-
tive December 31, 2010.

The Directors believe a
merger will create a stronger
financial institution, better
positioned to serve the future
credit needs of Florida agri-
culture and the rural com-
munities within the new as-
sociation's chartered territo-
ry

No office closings or materi-
al reduction in staff size are
expected. Realignment of
management duties may oc-
cur, thereby strengthening

ARTICLE IX, SECTION 1
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 31
(Legislative)

classrooms in the following grade group-
ings: 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,

ber of students assigned to each teacher
in public school classrooms would be-
come limits on the average number of
students assigned per class to each
teacher, by specified grade grouping, in
each public school. This amendment

Full Text:
ARTICLE IX
EDUCATION
SECTION 1. Public education.-
(a) The education of children
is a fundamental value of the people of
the State of Florida. It is, therefore, a
paramount duty of the state to make ad-
equate provision for the education of all
children residing within its borders. Ade-
quate provision shall be made by law for
a uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and
high quality system of free public
schools that allows students to obtain a
high quality education and for the estab-
lishment, maintenance, and operation of


institutions of higher leading and other
public education programs that the
needs of the people may require. To as-
sure that children attending public
schools obtain a high quality education,
the legislature shall make adequate pro-
vision to ensure that, by the beginning of
the 2010-2011 2010 school year and for
each school year thereafter, there are a
sufficient number of classrooms so that:
(1) Within each public
school, the average maximum number ol
students who are assigned per class to
each teacher who is teaching in public
school classrooms for prekindergarten
through grade 3 does not exceed 18 stu-
dents and the maximum number of stu-
dents assigned to each teacher in an in-
dividual classroom does not exceed 21

maximum number of students assigned

room does not exceed 30 students. The
class size requirements of this subsec-
tion do not apply to extracurricular or vir-
tual classes. Payment of the costs asso-
ciated with meeting reducing class size
to meet these requirements is the re-
sponsibility of the state and not of local
school schools districts. Beginning with
the 2003-2004 fiscal year,.The legisla-
ture shall provide sufficient funds to
maintain reduce the average number of
students required by in-each classroom
by at least two students per year until ,

ments of this subsection.

a high quality prekindergarten pre-
kindergarten learning opportunity in the
form of an early childhood development
and education program which shall be
voluntary, high quality, free, and deliv-
ered according to professionally accept-
ed standards. An early childhood devel-
opment and education program means
an organized program designed to ad-
dress and enhance each child's ability to
make age appropriate progress in an ap-
propriate range of settings in the devel-
opment of language and cognitivb capa-
bilities and emotional, social, regulatory,
and moral capacities through education
in basic skills and such other skills as
the Legislature may determine to be ap-
propriate.
(c) The early childhood edu-
cation and development programs pro-
vided by reason of subsection subpara-
graph (b) shall be implemented no later
Than the beginning of the 2005 school
year through funds generated in addition
to those used for existing education,
health, and development programs. Ex-
isting education, health, and develop-
ment programs are those funded by the
State as of January 1, 2002, that provid-
ed for child or adult education, health
care, or development..

Landrum endorses

Evans for School

Board


My name is Daniel "Pick
Landrum, and as many of
you know, I was a candidate
for Dixie County School
Board Member, District 5.

On August 24th, I was elimi-
nated as a candidate for this
position as chosen by you,
the voters. In any election
someone has to lose and I
guess the good Lord decid-
ed, as well as the voters,
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


member in District 5. Mr.
Bookie Evans is a lifelong
friend of mine. He is an ac-
tive church member and is a
born-again Christian. He
and his wife have raised two
children and both of their
children attended Dixie
County Schools from start
to finish, where both gradu-
ated from Dixie County
High School.

Mr. Evans currently has one
grandchild that will be at-
tending our school system
in the coming years. Mr.
Evans is an honest, depend-
able man, who will fight for
the needs of our children
and will not be a "yes" man
who will be easily persuad-
ed by Dixie County politics.

If we elect Mr. Bookie Evans
as our next school board
member, I can assure you
that he will be an asset to
our school system.

Let's vote and elect Leroy
"Bookie" Evans for School
Board Member District 5, on
November 2nd.

Sincerely,
Daniel "Pick" Landrum

from Shirley Sapp with some


great recipes. In the first one
she wrote:....

Enjoyed your column last fall
about Thanksgiving at you
all's hunting camp.....just not
Thanksgiving anywhere else is
it? And hunting season
is coming up again soon, Rock
Level had their dinner a cou-
ple weeks ago....(were you
there) but we're always looking
for recipes to fix at the camp to
feed a crew or special dishes
that people bring to any of
the gatherings at the camp,
and thought some columns to
gather some of these would be
good.....I'm sending you a cou-
ple of ours to get
started......

This is a favorite of the Sapp
boys and Brett calls it:

RDIo LeveL CaviCar

1 Ib roll of hot flavored
sausage
2 cans corned beef hash
6 eggs
Salt & pepper to taste

In a large skillet on medium
heat, cook sausage till no
longer pink,(put a pan of re-
frigerator biscuits in the oven
while you're waiting on the
sausage to cook) leaving some
of the drippings in the pan,
open corned beef hash cans at
both ends and use one of the
lids to push the hash thru,
(saves digging and one less
spoon to wash) stir in
with sausage and cook till both
are brown and beginning to
crisp. Break the eggs into mix-
ture, salt & pepper to taste and
stir till eggs are done.

Eat at the camp or make sand-
wiches with the biscuits and
the hash mixture and bring
with you. Ethan likes to put
hot sauce on his, but butter
and jelly is good as well. Feeds
a lot dern cheap.....things to
do while its cooking,.....Take
bets what Time Rider will
come by and blow his horn
and holler all right, lets
go.......catch the dogs that
got out last night......work on
whoever's radio ain't working
and there will be one.....and
make sure you remember a
roll of toilet tissue.

Mary, if you want to use these,
please feel free...:..if you think
you might use them I will send
you a couple more that we al-
ways use every year......hope

August has gone and with it
came the start of another
school year. All of our karate
students have returned to
school and are working very
hard not only with homework
but with their continuing
martial arts studies.

Our meatball sub fundraiser
and the Krispy Kreme
fundraiser were a big success
for our competition team,
earning the team over $1100 to
go towards the purchase of
ten of the 20 new competition
uniforms needed.

Guess it wouldn't hurt to intro-
duce me.....I'm Shirley
Sapp.....our camp...the Sapp
camp is across the pump from
thetValentines below C.C.&
Mamie Jo's camp on the camp
road.....these recipes are all
ones the boys came up with
out of desperation I guess.....

sb.ubber's cajuv W5 tw6 sotup

1 Ib pkg Brats (your choice fla-
vor)
1 large onion chopped
1 bag Cajun Flavored 15 bean
soup
Large crock pot

Dice brats and lightly brown,
add onions and cook till just
clear. Place beans and water in
large pot and add the
brats/onion mixture.
When Brett fixes this at the
camp, he comes in at noon,
gets it started on high in the
crockpot. About midway the
afternoon somebody will go
back by the camp to check for
water and put the cajun flavor
packet in at that time. Each'
crockpot may be different, but
by the time everyone
starts coming in from the
woods, it's ready. Season to
taste with salt, turn crockpot
temperature to lowest setting
to keep warm till the last
hunter gets in and gets a bowl.
It's good with any kind
of bread, but especially good
with cornbread. This soup is
also good with salt pork bacon,
. cubed and browned.

Mary, use these any time you
want, I made the boys (we have
4) a recipe book for Christmas
a couple years ago and most of
the recipes are in their own
words....so some new ones for
their books would be great.
Talk at you again I'm
sure.....Shirley

Thank you, thank you Mrs.
Shirley! These next two
recipes are from a lovely lady
named Melba.

I like your article in the pa-
per... This is for some real ten-
der meat and tasty...

A large wild pork or venison
ham, clean real good... Have a
roaster pan and put the ham in
it, take mayonnaise and cover
all over making it white... Salt
and pepper to your taste and
rub that into the mayonnaise...
Put about a half of inch of wa-
ter into the pan... Cover the
ham with foil and put into the


tournament and
support our
team.

The team repre-
sents the entire
karate school

ty. Your support
is important to
them.

Mr. Taylor will be hosting sev-
eral afterschool programs at
the local schools this year. As
with last year, each student
will have an opportunity to
participate in their own
"Night of Champion" right
here at the DoJang. Anderson
Elementary School has just
completed their first program
and we honored 17 partici-
pants with a certificate of
completion. As usual, the par-
ticipation of our regular stu-
dents is

important to show these chil-
dren how we work together
and help each other.

Some other up coming events
we will be participating in
will be the homecoming pa-
rade in Cross City, our final
NFMAA Grand Champion
tournament November 6th in
Jacksonville, and the Stein-
hatchee Christmas Parade in
Steinhatchee.

If you are interested in being
a part of these upcoming
events, please come by the
karate school on Monday,
Tuesday or Thursday be-
tween 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm
and speak with Mr. Taylor or
one of his assistants. We are
located one block behind the
courthouse; look for the big
karate sign.


POW Day celebrated

This article is a follow up to last
week's POW/MIA column. It is a
recounting of the murder of 36
American POW's and the 5 who
survived the horrific ordeal.
A forgotten incident, in a forgot-
ten place, in a forgotten war. Ex-
cept by the families of the people
involved.

The place was Hill 303, the date
was August
17, 1950, in
the vicinity
of Waegwan,
during the
Korean War.

The chain of
events began
with the sol-
diers ,41 of .
them, having
their posi-
tion overrun
by North Ko-
reans. They
were expect-
ing a unit of
South Kore-
ans coming,
to help fortify their position.
Thinking the approaching sol-
diers were friendliess" they
were allowed to enter their posi-
tion uncontested. The North Ko-
reans played the part, greeting
the soldiers with smiles and
handshakes. Once they were
close enough, they captured the
surprised Americans. The
American soldiers were part of
HQ Co. 2ndBattalion, Co.'s
E,G,H,F and a medical company,
all of the U.S. Army 5th Cavalry
Regiment.

The soldiers were then taken
captive and their hands were
tied behind them with field wire.
The North Koreans then emptied
their pockets of everything,
watches, lighters, and all person-
al effects. They were then
marched down the road about
700 yards to the base of Hill 303
where they were relieved of
their shoes, helmets and were
questioned. They were then .


placed in a ravine and given a
third cup of water and an apple.
On the second night, they were
marched to the top of Hill 303 in
an attempt to crogs the river.
Then the 5th Cavalry counter-at-
tacked scattering the captors.
Knowing they couldn't escape
with the prisoners in tow, they
lined them up in a ravine and
shot them at point blank range,
killing 36 of them. The survivors
lived because the dead ones fell
on top of them, protecting them.
As the 5th Cavalry
moved in, three of
the North Koreans
were captured.
These three were
later identified as
the men responsi-
ble for the killing
. of the POW's, for
they had given the
order to shoot
them. They were
arrested and
charged with war
crimes for the
atrocities that
were committed.
The three were of-
ficers in the North
Korean Army's 1st Co., 206th
Regiment, 105th Division.
This is just one of many horror
stories about our POW's and the
treatment they received. The sto-
ry, however, does not end here.
Through the tireless efforts of
1st Lt. David Kangas, Comman-
der of HQ Detachment, 36th Sig-
nal Battalion, the self-appointed,
representative for the 36 Ameri-
can soldiers brutally murdered
at the hands of their captors, a
monument was raised at the site
of the massacre in honor of
those slain.

The recounting of these events
were made possible by Dave Noo-
nan of Old Town, who provided
me with all the info, newspaper
articles, magazine articles, and
signed affidavits of the survivors
who lived to tell their story
This is why we have POW/MIA
Remembrance Day so these
brave men should never be for-
gotten.


From COMMISSION, pg 1

Emergency Services Coordi-
nator Tim Alexander was
pleased to announce that af-
ter a random inspection by
-the state, that EMS got an
"excellent rating," and that
he is "very proud of my
staff." He said that the in-
spection was extremely
thorough, and that state in-
spectors went through per-
sonnel files, ambulances,
and even counted medica-
tions on board to make sure
they met guidelines. He re-
minded the Board that Octo-
ber 3-9 is Fire Protection
Week and that his depart-
ment will be doing some
events and education during
that time.

A workshop was set for Oc-
tober 7th at 1.00 pin to allow
the public's imput on a
CDBG grant to extend water
to 55A.

Cindy Bellot announced that
the Library will be hosting
free computer classes start-
ing October 6, and a special
archaeology program for
children that involves exca-
vating chocolate chips on
October 20th. Contact the li-
brary for more details and
to sign up.

The meeting didn't adjourn,
but the public was removed
from the room so that the
Board could go into "execu-
tive session" to discuss
pending legal cases involv-
ing the Board. County Attor-
ney Jennifer Ellison re-
quested the executive ses-
sion and said that the cases
were Shiver, Joy vs. Dixie
County, Lander and Lander
vs. Dixie County, and
William G. O'steen vs. Dixie
County

I received this last e-mail from
Judy Poitevint and it was such
a sweet letter. I wanted to
share it with you.

Hello Mary
I just wanted to tell you how
much I really look forward to
reading and TRYING the
recipes you prints in the paper
every week. I cooked Mrs. Nan-
cy Chowder and OMG it is
wonderful and so darn easy to
prepare. (yes, we licked our
bowls too!!) BUT- Nothing com-
pares to the'Cabbage Roll
Casserole ....It is the greatest. I
made this when my niece was
visiting from Ohio and she
liked it so much I caught her
at the kitchen table with my
recipe book open copying the
recipe. She told me, the last
time I talked to her, all the cab-
bage was ready to eat in the
north, and everybody had an
extra head so she was handing
out this recipe for everyone to
try. She has also taken Cab-
bage Roll Casserole to several
social events and it was a "hit"
with everyone requesting a
copy of the recipe.......this is
our favorite. Keep those
recipes coming!!
Happy Cooking!!!!
Judy Poitevint

In addition to my usual beg-
ging 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. Actually, I
just want to hear from you.
You have no idea how excited I
get. E-mail me anything any-
time at
Cravey644@bellsouth.net

C NTY COMMISSIONER, DISTRICT 4
Pol. advertisement paid for and approved by Troy Mickey T. Johnson for County Commlslsonerjpast 4


I FI9 IEmt- 7


ICouLnty Commissioner district 4

For the past four years I have been honored and humbled to have the
priviledge to serve as your Dixie County Commissioner. I have diligently
served the people of Dixie Coupty with honesty and integrity, making
informed decisions that are in the best interest to Dixie County as a
whole.

I realize that the Board must work together in order to accomplish a
common goal for the good of the people. Since being elected in 2006,
I have had the opportunity to make vital decisions to assure that we
continue to move forward and not lose ground during these difficult
economic times.

My goal has been to work with fellow board members to fulfill the many
powers and duties clearly set forth by the Florida State Statutes. We
have avoided employee layoffs by managing the work force and
evaluating areas that responsibilities can be shared. Multiple county
buildings have been renovated, additional vital services have been
established, county parks have been improved, recreational areas
upgraded, and departments have been reorganized to assure state land
use and building codes are enforced. We have completed major storm
water drainage systems, installed seawalls, provided solid waste
collection, resurfaced multiple miles of county roads and reduced the
county debt from $6.5 million dollars to just under $1 million.

It is my obligation to the people of Dixie County as your commissioner
to do the RIGHT thing for the RIGHT reason. I humbly ask for your vote
and support on November 2.
Thank you,


7t;

Dixie County Advocate
Facebook Question of the
Week:
If you could bring one
business to Dixie County,
what would you bring and
why?.


Ila Carlson Valentine-We need
some kind of Business that
would bring more jobs into the
county Lots of people really
need jobs. Some type of produc-
tion instead of some place to go
and eat. Times are not getting
much better.

Jeanine Collins I would bring a
Publix Grocery Store. The jobs
pay well, there are many jobs
with one store, it would bring
more people into Dixie County
There are many, many Dixie
Countians that shop at Publix in
Jonesville, so why not keep that
revenue in Dixie County AND
provide jobs for Dixie
Countians.


Jessica Reid Some sort of coffee
shop!!:) Like Barnies or some-
thing:)

Donna Cravey A movie theater!
Yesterday at 8:48am LikeUnlike

Joshua Bannister A mini-mall
with a movie theatre. Some mind
sets within the County need to
be changed as well.


Jenna Cothron I would say
something like a bowling alley
with an arcade inside. It would
create jobs, along with giving
kids something to do to help
keep them out of trouble!

Jeanine Collins I also think a
Krispy Kreme would be a great
business.....

Tiffany Millard Rivera I
agree...Publix..."Where Shopping
is a Pleasure".

Denise Harrington PUBLIX,
PUBLIC, PUBLIC need we say
anymore....

Joni Kelly I agree we need pub-
lix, coffee shop, and arbys!!!!!
More jobs!

Donna Cravey I like Publix, but
they are so darned expensive.

Angela Driggers McCullough
Def. something for the kids to

Sam Chavous this is Bet, not
Sam. i would love to see a bowl-
ing alley with gameroom, snack
bar and lounge, not a huge one,
just a small somewhere to go and
something to do.


Lucy Robinson Is the one in
Chiefland gone? I'm out of
the loop.

Sam Chavous yes the onein
chiefland has been gone,fOr
quite some time now.

Heather Hatch a movie the-
atere...no contest. I would pull in
people from the surrounding
counties as well .

Lesley Hall I would agree, a
bowling alley would be nice.

Karen Lee Lord public, '
yes....but wouldn't it be great if
GP opened back up, alot of.jobs
were lost there.

Patricia Foster Stephens How
about a Home Depot?

Whitley Butler A HOSPITAL
come on ppl ...huge amount of
jobs...more ppl...more revenue....
eventually be able to build ;
MORE things to support that
...like a Publix lol


Gall Salas A hospital, without a
doubt.

Kathy McKinney: rm the weird
one out, but I'd vote for manufac-
turing. Something like a comput-
er chip plant or a plastic factory
or something with semi-skilled
jobs, pension plans, and that
would bring in lots of trucks,
too.

Marcus Ferner About The
Only Thing This County Will Al-
low To Be Built Is A Place To
Eat...There Not Gonna Allow
Something Big To Come In Here.
To Put Local Business Out Of A
Job...We Could Have Had Wal-
Mart,CVS,Etc In Dixie ButThey
Wouldn't Allow It...So I Would
Like A Golden Corral Here

Meagan Nease I would have to
say some sort of plant too. I
mean c'mon jobs in Dixie are few
and far between and with the
economy most can't afford to dri-
ve to surrounding counties for
jobs because it would be point-
less by the time you factor in ex-
penses. A manufacturing plant to
where anyone can work there re-
gardless of expeirence or non-ex-
peirence.


The economy stinks: Don't

throw your money away!

years of serving the Lord and
our community Past and pre-
sent members, family, and
friends gathered together to
reminisce on how our church
was birthed 61 years ago. To tell
the story we went to two people
that would surely know. Sisters
and only living charter mem-
bers, Katie Ross and Catherine
Mills. They told their stories as
if it was just yesterday They
told us that in 1949 there was a
great tent revival. Folks from
many towns came to take part.
Many were lead to the Lord dur-
ing this time. They continued to
have church in the large tent.
As the congregation grew many
of the men and women would
cook meals on Friday's and sell
them for a dollar a meal. With
this money a new church was
built. Mrs. Ross was unable to

THE SCHOOL BOARD OF DIXIE COUNTY,

BY: TIMOTHY W. ALEXANDER, CHAIR
kTTEST: MARK A. RAINS, SUPERINTEN-
ENT


DIXIE COUNTY 2009-10 CDBG FIRST
PUBLIC HEARING
October 7, 2010 Held in the Dixie County Cour-
thouse at 1:00 p.m.
I. The Dixie County Commission Is
considering applying to the State of Florida for a
$750,000 Small Cities Community Development
Block Grant.
II. CDBG programs are funded by the
federal Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment (HUD) and administered in the State '
of Florida by the Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA).
III. The deadline for Florida's Small
Cities COBG applications has been officially es-
tablished November 15, 2010
IV. In order to qualify for CDBG fund-
ing, at least 51 percent of any CDBG project
must be spent to benefit low to moderate In-
come persons.
V. CDBG projects are divided into
four categories:

Neighborhood Revitalization
This category is primarily for water
and sewer and Installation or replacement (In-
cluding hook-ups) In low/moderate Income
neighborhoods. Street paving and drainage may
also be approved. Funds may also be used to
purchase and develop property as sites for
low/moderate income housing. Other public im-
provements are also eligible, but are seldom
funded.
Typical Projects:
Water &/or Sewer Construction
Water &/or Sewer Improvements
Water &/or Sewer Hookups
Fire Hydrants (Fire Protection)
Street Paving
Housing
In low/moderate income neighborhoods, sub-
standard housing occupied by Income eligible
households may be rehabilitated to meet code
requirements. Owner occupied houses are gen-
erally addressed. Dilapidated housing may be
demolished and cleared, and financing is pro-
vided to the displaced occupants for replace-
ment housing.
Typical Projects:
Housing Repairs
Housing Replacements
Clearance of Structures
Commercial Revitalization
Various Improvements may be
funded In commercial areas. Eligible projects in-
clude storefront improvements, parking facilities,
drainage, street paving, sidewalks, lighting,
recreation facilities, water and sewer.
Typical Projects:
Storm Drainage
Store Front Improvements
Handicap Accessibility
Parking Lots & Playgrounds
Economic Development
Funds are available to local gov-
emments to provide necessary infrastructure or
sites for new business or business expansion.
Local governments may also loan funds directly "
to the business for capital expenses (land, build-
ing, equipment, site development), and repay-
ment of the loan Is then available for future pro-
jects, In all cases, private match is required on
at least a one-to-one basis.. New jobs must be
provided or existing jeopardized jobs retained,
primarily for low/moderate income persons.
Typical Projects:
Industrial Park Development
Loans for Business Development

First Public Hearing

Only one project can be funded In either the
Neighborhood, Housing or Commercial Revital-
ization categories. In other words, the commu-
nity MUST make a choice as to what type of
project they hope to get funded in those areas.
However, a community can also apply for a pro-
ject in the Economic Development category any
time during the year. There Is no established
funding cycle for ED applications, which are ac-
cepted by DCA on a monthly basis.
VI. Projects must meet at least
one of three national objectives In order to be
considered for funding:
1. Must benefit LOW
and MODERATE Income persons; or
S 2. Must aid in the
prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
3. Must meet other
community development needs of recent origin
having a particular
urgency because existing conditions pose a
threat to the health and welfare of the
community and where other financial re-
sources are not available to meet such needs.
VII. CDBG application awards are
based on competition and Dixie County's Com-
munity Wide Needs Score is 47.07, which is
low, however other factors, i.e., compliance to
the Comprehensive Plan, Equal Employment
Opportunity compliance, Handicapped Accessi-
bility of the government owned buildings all con-
tribute to the total project scoring and ultimate
success of the CDBG application.

I was born in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have
to restore the Gulf communities for the shrimpers, fishermen,
hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach


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 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 ca, 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 o'f 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.
