Dixie's Jobless

rate jumps in

August


From July to August, the un-
employment rate within
Dixie County crept up from
13.5 to 13.6. The same time
last year, the rate was "only"
12%. In July, 758 Dixie resi-
dents were looking for work,
and in August, the number
jumped to 781.

Dixie comes in 14th of
Counties ranked by unem-
ployment rate. Hendry tops
the list with 20.6%. Levy
County is 17th, and Taylor
comes in at 24th. Gilchrist
and Levy Counties also saw
jumps in the jobless rate for
August.

"Whew, I'm tired," a Dixie
County volunteer firefighter
sighed as he struggled into
his safety gear on Sunday
afternoon, "I've been up do-
ing this since 4:30 a.m."

Tired or not, he grabbed a
hose and joined the three or
four other volunteers bat- *
fling a blazing Winnebago at
the Contois home off of Log
Landing Road. A gas tank
exploded with a bang, shoot-


ing flames towards the hose,
and the firefighters jumped
back. Scotty Millican, wit-
ness and next-door neigh-
bor, said that he thought
that the homeowners had
been working on the RV's
generator, and that might
have started the blaze. The
Contois' were not home
when the fire broke out.

Although Cross City Fire
Department reimburses vol-


unteer firefighters $20 for
each fire, County fire de-
partments don't. Each fire-
fighter volunteer takes 246
hours of education to get
certified to work at a dirty,
sweaty job for long hours,
for free. Dixie County fire-
fighters had already battled
two other structure fires on
this "day of rest," one in
Old Town and a brick home
Near the Cross City sewer
plant orf CR 351 South.

The Dixie Walks program kicked off Tuesday evening at 5:30 at Roy Ward Little League
Park. The six week program is sponsored by Family Medical Practice, and teams compete
for a variety of prizes that are handed out in a ceremony at the end of the challenge.



Homeowner's Policy increases


approved for Dixie coasts


Coastal residents of Dixie
County who are insured
through Citizens Property
Insurance will be hit with
big increases on homeown-
er's policies for homes and
mobile homes starting Janu-
ary first.
Florida's Office of Insur-
ance Regulation approved a
lb.3 percent increase
statewide for homes and 9.2
percent increases for mobile
homes. Policies that exclude
catastrophic coverage for
things like sinkholes and
hurricanes will see a 3.4 per-
cent decrease.


S- ", .1
F


[ i.


, .


Citizens asked
for a 9.7 percent
increase, but the
Office of Insur-
ance Regulation
granted a larger
rate statewide.
Citizens asked
for the increase
because of a
large increase in
sinkhole claims
and "other risk
factors."

Increases on each
county are calculated differ-
ently. While Dixie county
coastal residents are hit
with a 8.2% increase for.
homes, the non-coastal areas
of the county will get a 3.4%
decrease. The highest rates
were in Dade and Hendry
Counties, which got
slammed with increases
over 18%. Dixie County mo-
bile home owners on the
coast will get a 7.2% dis-
count, and mobile homes in
the rest of the county will
see a 1.2% decrease.


The order requires an in-
spection for sinkhole expo-
sure on any new business or
policy that requests sinkhole
coverage.

Citizens Property insurance
is an insurance company of
last resort for Floridians
who can't get insurance else-
Where. It was created by
statute to ensure the exis-
tence of an insurance mar-
ket for Florida.


Old Town woman

held on no bond
Autumn N. Peterson, 24, of
Old Town, was arrested in
Levy County on Thursday
afternoon on a warrant for
Violation of Probation for
Grand Theft. She was also
charged with Violation of
Driver's License Restric-
tion. Bail on the driving
charge was set at $5,000 but
Peterson was held on the
VOP charge with no bond.



Old Town woman charged

With possession


Kellie C. Ponce, 20, of Old
Town, was arrested near
midnight on Monday in Fan-
ning Springs after she was
pulled over in a vehicle
owned by Carlos Diaz for do-
ing 51 in a 35 mile per hour
zone.


According to a report from
the Levy County Sheriff's
office, the officer asked for a
driver's license, but Ponce
said that her license was
" suspended. Lgvy County
dispatch advised that her li-
cense had been suspended
eight times for failure to
pay a traffic citation.

While doing an inventory
on the vehicle, the officer
found a ,zipper bag with sy-
ringes, a tourniquet, and
two oxycodone pills.

Pence was arrested and
transported to the Levy
County jail. She was
charged with possession of
a controlled substance and
possession of drug para-
phern'alia.


If You Want To Win...Send

Mike In!

The Dixie County Bears
whipped the Trenton Tigers
Friday night in wet, soggy
battle in Trenton, 34 to 29.
The Bears lead by Mike
West took the lead early in
the first District game of
the season when West
scored on the first DC pos-
session. West, behind Kirby
Roberts pushed and plowed
his way to a total of 242
yards and four TD's. West
was aided in the Dixie victo-
ry by Freshman Duke Daw-
son, who scored on a 45yard
punt return and several.
points posted by Kicker Zak
Cassidy.

The Bears allowed the
Tigers to score in the sec-
ond quarter but were able to
hang on to a twenty point
lead going into the half. The
Tigers came out in the sec-
ond half showing a bit more
fight, scoring in the middle
of the third and again in the
first minutes of the fourth
closing the gap with Bears
by six points. The Bears an-
swered this with West dri-
ving steady down field in
seven plays to increase the


DC lead to 34-21. The Tigers,
relentless in their attack,
move downfield after a
touch back on the kick off,
to score again to make it a
six point game with just
four minutes left to play.
The Bears with the ball
back came just shdrt of the
first down giving the Tigers
another chance to win. In a
huge defensive effort, the
Bears, again lead by West
stopped the Tigers in four
plays to regain the ball and
ended the Tigers chance for
a district win.

Head Coach Brent Wilker-
son had this to say, "We con-
trolled the line of scrim-
mage, but we had a lot
missed tackles in the open
field. We kept our intensity
up tonight, and it was a '
good win." Mike West said
after the game, "my line
blocked great allowingme
to move the ball and I want
to give thanks to them."
Well, thanks to Mike and
the whole team for the first
district win! Next up the
Bears host the Villages in
another district bout, 7:30 at
Boyette Stadium. GO BIG
RED!


Cross City man arrested
in Levy County

rant for Violation of proba-
tion for possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon
in Levy County on Monday

The recession is over?

Pop the corks on the champagne bottles, folks, and when
you get done, please explain why you didn't start celebrat-
ing a year ago last June. That's because the recession,
which began in 2007 (see, it was all George W Bush's fault!)
ended in June of 2009, thanks to six months of inspired
leadership by President Barack Hussein Obama and a com-
pliant Congress under the direction of Nancy Pelosi and
Harry Reid.

There's an old saying that a recession is when you're out of
work and a depression is when I'm out of work. Thankfully,
I have not as yet found myself personally assigned to the
ranks of the unemployed, but I know a lot of people who
have. And their numbers are not dwindling, despite.the
ranting of economists who have assembled statistical data
in an effort to convince us dumb rednecks that the times
are a-gettin' better despite what your flat wallets and empty
gas tanks are telling you. According to these "experts," a re-
cession ends following a couple of consecutive 90 day peri-
ods when the economy doesn't get worse. If it tanks again
after that, wel, we'd be talking about a new recession, not
still more of the old one. In other words, virtual back-to-
back recessions'without a period of prosperity in between.
That's really something to celebrate, now, isn't it?

I ran across a fer ways to tell if a recession is really. over
with. How about, "Yoa know the recession is over when
your boss starts hiring people to replace those who retire,
quit or get fired." And then, there's "When your laid-off
friends get hired at jobs with good pay and fringe benefits."
But my favorite was, "When it once again becomes econom-
ically feasible to get a divorce." That last one sounds a little
morose, but if you've ever gone the divorce route, you know
it's hard to cover the alimony with an unemployment
check.

Which brings us to the fact that, for the average, working-
class individual, the real key is not the GNP, it's the unem-
ployment stats, which currently stand at 9.6% nation-wide.
Actually, this figure is probably deceptive when you consid-
er the people who are working at jobs that pay less than
what they're qualified for because that's all they can get, as
well as those who are no longer looking for work simply be-
cause they've become convinced that there just ain't none
there. In other words, people who would have jobs in a
healthy economy Include all of these in your calculations
and you're probably looking at an unemployment rate clos-
er to 15%.

Trying to solve the unemployment problem? The worst
thing you can do is raise taxes on those who are in a posi-
tion to hire workers. And that's exactly what Congress just
did when they decided to let the current income tax sched-
ule "sunset" at the end of the year--before a new Congress
could come to the rescue. (A new law passed in 2011 to re-in-
state the current tax rate would presumably be vetoed by
the President.) And while they were at it, Congress also de-
clined to keep the tax rate at its current level for those of us
making less than $250,000 a year. In other words, the work-
ing class can look for a tax hike, right along with the filthy
rich.

A method of helping solve the unemployment problem that
would work, and which the federal government is actually
required to implement, is sending the illegal aliens back
home. And that means all, not just a few here and there
every now and then. We're being told that it can't be done;
but Truman did it to open up job opportunities for return-
ing World War II veterans, and Ike did the same thing a few
years later for the returning Korean War vets. But it won't
happen as long as our national policy-makers persist in
cooking up new amnesty schemes and prosecuting states
that try to get the job done themselves.

So much for the recession that never really ended. Now,
wasn't it the same egg-head economists who told us there
has been no inflation during the past couple of tough
years? When times actually do get better (if ever) somebody
needs to get each of these "experts" a real job.

S'Captain Tangerine." I always picture him,

bright orange, skin-tight superhero suit,
prancing around with his best buddy Barack
and their pet unicorn that poops rainbow-colored Skittles,
hugging trees. I have a weird imagination, I know.

Anyway, I wrote an editorial last year sometime about.the
disastrous implications of him placing Florida under Cali-

it's own, and I'll do that later. He's refusing
to enforce Florida's laws against adoption bb

something unpopular like that? Makes one

"Restore Justice"

Seeks Removal of

Justices Labarga and

Perry

' Citizen2Citizen, partnering
with the Central Florida
Tea Party Council, is
launching the "Restore Jus-
tice" campaign, advocating
for a vote not to retain Flori-
da Supreme Court Justices
Jorge Labarga and James
Perry this November, after
placing politics above the
law to deny Floridians of
their constitutional right
vote on Health Care Free-
dom (Amendment 9). Labar-
ga and Perry upheld a cir-
cuit court ruling by Judge
James Shelfer to remove
Amendment 9


The idea behind this nightmare bill was to "protect the
springs" of Florida, and this septic rule was tacked on, last-
minute, to a "protect the springs" piece of legislation. Many
legislators who voted for it claim that they had no idea what
they were voting for. (That's another editorial, too.) OK,
maybe if you live at Horseshoe or on right on the river, or
even in the floodplain, maybe I could see a regular inspec-
tion being a good thing. I believe the law already requires an
inspection when a home sells. But everybody? Everywhere?
Every five years? There are 2.6 million septics in Florida. In
a worsening (and yes, let's go ahead and admit it) economic
depression that has hit Florida's real estate industry the
hardest? Can you say insane? Because that's what this is.

Letter to the Editor,


Last Thursday a large sign of
Independent Paul McKain
was ripped off of its frame.
Not only is this an act
against the law, but an act of
cowardice.

Any candidate that does not
instruct his campaign work-
ers to refrain from doing
such acts are just as guilty as
the individuals who do the
destruction and do we really
need congressmen in Wash-
ington that condone such
acts?

We have too many like that
there already and if people
are afraid of an independent
candidate who stands for the
voters, then maybe your can-
didate should withdraw from
the race.

Or is this politics as usual?

Something stinks In Tallahassee


SEASON'S GREETINGS

T'was the night before
elections
And all through the town
Tempers were flaring
Emotions all up and down

I, in my bathrobe
With a cat in my lap,
Had cut off the TV
tired of political clap-trap

When all of a sudden
There arose such a noise
I peered out my window
Saw obama and his boys

They had come for my wallet
They wanted my pay
To give to the others
Who had not worked a day!

He snatched up my money
And quick as a wink
Jumped back on his
bandwagon
As I gagged from the stink

He then rallied his hench-
men
Who were pulling his cart
I could tell they were out
To tear my country apart!

'On Fannie, on Freddie,
On Biden and Ayers!
On Acorn, On Pelosi'
He screamed at the pairs!

They took off for his cause
And as they flew out of sight
I heard him laugh
at the nation
Who wouldn't stand up and
fight!

So I leave you to think
On this one final note-
IF YOU DON'T WANT
SOCIALISM
GET OUT AND VOTE !!!!
GOD BLESS AMERICA,
OUR ONLY HOPE!

STUDENTS TO HOST FIELDS OF
FAITH EVENT, JOINING
THOUSANDS OF YOUTH
ACROSS AMERICA ON OCTO-
BER 13TH

Students from Dixie County
will be joining thousands of
other youth on athletic
fields all across America on
Wednesday, October 13, 2010,
to share their Christian
faith with fellow students
during the seventh annual
national Fields of Faith
event. This rapidly-growing,
interdenominational out-
reach event will be held at
more than 400 locations
throughout the nation on
this same date. The event
will be held at the High
School Football Stadium and
will begin at 7:00pm.

While many Christian ral-
lies are anchored to an en-
tertainer or professional
speaker that creates a spec-
tator event, Fields of Faith
is structured as a student-to-
student ministry. Peers in-
vite their own classmates
and teammates to meet on
their school's athletic field
to hear fellow students
share their testimonies,
challenge them to read the
Bible and to come to faith in
Jesus Christ.


The national growth of
Fields of Faith has been re-
markable. Since the begin-
ning of Fields of Faith in
2004, more than 365,000 stu-
dents have joined in the
movement. In 2009 alone,
more than 125,000 students
gathered on 446 fields across
38 states to participate in
the event.

It's not just those numbers
that have FCA organizers
excited about Fields of
Faith. It's the real-life im-
pact that these gatherings
are having on young people.
Last year's series of events
saw 3,248 students make
first-time faith commit-
ments to follow Jesus
Christ,.4,288 recommitted
their life to Christ and 8,852
committed to reading the
Bible daily


"The impact of Fields of
Faith has been incredible in
just these past few years,"
said Les Steckel, FCA presi-
dent and former veteran
NFL coach. "It's all about
young people in these com-
munities coming together
on their school's athletic
field and challenging each
other to go back to the fun-
damentals of reading God's
Word and coming to faith in
Jesus Christ."

The impetus for Fields of
Faith began with Jeff Mar-
tin, an FCA staff person,
who conceived the idea from
an Old Testament reference
in 2 Chronicles 34 after
searching how to help to-
day's generation of students
face.spiritual battles and
temptations. In the scrip-
ture, King Josiah, an influ-
ential teenager very similar
to Fields of Faith attendees
today, gathered his people
and challenged them to read
the Bible. As a result, they
changed their culture.

In 2004, the Josiah-influ-
enced dream came true
when 6,000 students gath-
ered on school athletic fields
throughout three states for
the first Fields of Faith
event. That was the begin-
ning of what has become
one of the most significant
faith-related gathering of
students in a single day.

"Fields of Faith challenges
this generation to be com-
mitted to reading the Bible
and living a transformed life
for Jesus Christ," said Mar-
tin. "It's students challeng-
ing students, peers challeng-
ing peers and that's the
heart and soul of Fields of
Faith."

While Fields of Faith has its
roots with FCA leadership,
the event is designed to in-
clude multiple national
Christian organizations, lo-
cal churches and ministries.
A local leadership team will
determine the program of
each Fields of Faith event.

Fields of Faith is available

My wife and I have two
children that graduated Dixie
County High School, one in 2008
and one in 2009. I am very famil-
iar with the operation of the Dixie
County School System, as I have
been very involved in my
children's education.

I now have the privilege to help
raise my granddaughter, Brilee
Howard. The decisions I make as
your school board member will af-
fect my grandchild also.

The Board's job is to set policy
and procedure. If elected I will be
accountable to do what is right. I
will work to set a budget that is
fair and spend our tax dollars with
respect, even so-called "free"
grant money, it is still our tax dol-
lars! I will work to improve exist-
ing policy such as the drug policy,
which should randomly test
each and every student,
teacher, staff, and faculty,
the School Superintendent to
the School Board members.

I feel you should lead by
example, not the old adage of
Do as I say, not as I do. I
work diligently as a publ-ic s
vant, hired by you, to improve

Rangers Raid Indians

by John Kelley
The Ruth Rains Rangers
beat the Fort White Indians
at Arrowhead stadium in
Fort White 30 to 22 last
Tuesday night. The Rangers
pressed the Indians most of
the night refusing to give
the Indians any advantage.
James Bowers played an ex-
ceptional game for the
Rangers including a fourth
down pass interception and
90yard touchdown return to
clinch it for Ruth Rains.

Mandatory Livestock Fair Meeting
The Dixie Sr FFA chapter will be holding a mandatory
Suwannee River Livestock Fair meeting on Monday, Octo-
ber 4th in the media center at the Dixie County High
School. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m. Any member
from the senior chapter that is even considering partici-
pating in the livestock fair needs to attend this meeting.
Please remember that in order to show at the livestock fair
each FFA member's dues have to be paid. Dues are $25 per
member. You can pay your dues at the meeting if you
haven't already paid then.


Quade Locke, at quarter-
back for the Rangers used
Bowers and Julian Roberts
most of the night to get the
offensive job done, but in
the end it was the whole
team effort that produced
the Ranger.victory. Bowers
scored three touchdowns,
Locke took one in, and Trey
Simmons added six on a
punt return.
Braridon Land, Roy Bray,
and Trey Simmons were
part of a devastating de-
fense for the Rangers man-
aging to hold the Indians
most of the night. "We real-
ly stuck together tonight"
commented Coach Thomas.
"We played better in the sec-
ond half, sometimes a win
doesn't come easy, but
tonight we played hard and
took home the win."
Well said Coach, and con-
gratulations to the whole
Ranger team! Next up, an
open night for the team. Go
Rangers!

JEWELS FOUND IN
OLD TOWN?

Did you know there is a
touch of the tropics right
here in Old Town? And in
that tropical setting, "living
jewels" abound to the de-
light of everyone who vis-
its?

"Pelican Bay Island" is the
name Johnny & Martha Fos-
ter gave their 5+ acres in
Old Town. It is a little piece
of Heaven right in Dixie
County Many locals
have visited the "is-
land" over the years Z '
to see the sights.
Now the Foster's are
extending an invita- ';
tion to everyone to
visit "Pelican Bay ;
Island" and attend
Nature's Coast 10th
Annual Koi & Gold-
fish Show which
will be held on Sat-
urday, October 9 & Sunday,
October 10.

Maybe you've heard of koi.
They cart be one of the
world's most expensive pets.
In some of the large koi
shows around the country,
it's not uncommon to see
some valued at $20,000! Most
koi don't cost nearly that
much. The average koi sells
for $25 to $100, but they are
just as beautiful as their ex-
pensive cousins. Some look
like were crafted from gold
or silver. On some, the
scales sparkle like dia-
monds. The Japanese have
called koi "living jewels."
But the long whiskers on
their faces give their pedi-
gree away. They're actually
just really nice-looking carp.
Even experts aren't exactly
sure how koi got started.
The usual story is that, cen-
turies ago, farmers who
raised carp for food in Asia
discovered some particular-
ly colorful natural mutants
and decided to breed them.
.Early Chinese and Japan: -
ese paintings show aristo-
cratic ladies tending ponds
full of red and white koi.
According to feng shui, koi


would bring health, wealth,
and good luck to the house-
hold.
Today, koi are still consid-
ered lucky Last year, the
state of Maine seized a Chi-
nese restaurant owner's pet
koi he had displayed in an
aquarium in his restaurant
for 15 years; officials had
ruled that koi are invasive if
they escape from captivity,
and they made it illegal to
own koi without a permit.
Almost immediately, things
started to go wrong at the
restaurant. The heating and
cooling system broke, and


v .r,


the owner fell down
the stairs. The
whole episode made
the New York
Times and the own-
er got his fish back!


Koi are usually too
., huge to keep in an
,' aquarium. They
S start out about 3
inches long, but
they grow to about
two feet long in just two
years. They can eventually
grow to 5 feet long.

Mark your calendars and
come out to "the island" to
spend the day Besides tanks
full of gorgeous "living jew-
"els" to behold, you can tour
the fern garden, take a peek
at the numerous ponds, see
the bamboo collection, walk
the nature trails, admire the
variety of exotic birds or
just relax in the peaceful
setting. There will be ven-
dors selling koi and gold-
fish, plants, concrete statu-
ary and pond supplies. We
will have a concession stand
open in case you get hungry.
Raffles will be ongoing dur-
ing both days of the show.
Sound like fun? Come on
out and join us! Admission
is free and there is plenty of
parking. Hours for the show
are Saturday, October from
9 a.m.- 4 p.m. and Sunday,
October 10 from 10 a.m.-3
p.m. To find Pelican Bay Is-
land, come north on 349 five
fiies:from the light in Old
Town and look for the signs.

SUWANNEE

RIVER FAIR


This week's recipes are going
to be some I have made up my-
self. I loved the taste of the
seafood chowder Mrs. Nancy
was kind enough to share. I de-
cided to work with the Pioneer
Gravy mix to see what else I.
could whip up.

RolIe Bottoru soup

1 pound Nettles smoked
sausage cut into bite sized
pieces
1 onion diced
2 celery stalks diced
3 garlic cloves
5-6 potatoes peeled and cut into
bite sized pieces
3 chicken bullion cubes
1 head of broccoli, washed and
cut into bite sized pieces
2 Pioneer Brand Peppered
gravy mixes
1 can cream of mushroom
soup
1 can evaporated milk
16 oz. Extra sharp cheddar
cheese grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Put a little oil into a soup pot
and cook sausage until almost
brown. Add the onion and cel-
ery and cook until tender. The
last few minutes add the garlic
cloves and cook until fragrant.
Drain any excess oil. Add pota-
toes to pot and add water until


STRAIGHT TALK
By Dixie District School Su
perintendent Mark Rains


We have completed the firsi
month of school. Our chil-
dren are in the classrooms
working towards academic
progress. They are also par
ticipating in after school ex
tra curricular activities, joi
ing school clubs, officers
elected, and our football an
volleyball programs are in
competitive season. I belie
team work and school spirit
are very important to our
students.

October 1st is the beginning
of our FCAT instructional
season. I will join the prin
pals, reading coaches, and
Director of Curriculum, wl
will all be a visible, integra
part of each school, as we
strive to continue academic
success for every student.
We feel that by working to-
gether in a collaborative ef
fort, we can make a positive
change in student achieve-
ment.

During the past month, I
have visited local organize
tions, agencies, and munic:
palities speaking about the
educational system in Dixi
County. It is my goal to me
with citizens and listen to
your ideas and concerns
about our schools, so that w
can work together to achie'
the best education possible
for our children.

I would like to thank the
American Legion Post 383
for the donation of Ameri-
can flags so that we will ha
a flag in every classroom.
They also displayed the flag
at the football stadium dur
ing the first home game.

The class size amendment
will be on the ballot in No-
vember. This amendment
will determine whether the
caps in individual academic
classes will stand as currer
ly in the constitution or wi
allow the school districts
flexibility to average acade
mic core classes and remain
under the cap.

The Superintendent's Cabi
net was recently selected f(
the 2010-2011 school year.
This is the second year of


just covered. Add the bullion
cubes, salt and pepper and
cook unfil the potatoes are al-
most tender. Add the broccoli
and cook until the broccoli and
potatoes are done. Prepare the
gravy mix as directed on the
label. Blend with cream of
mushroom soup and evaporat-
ed milk. Add to the sausage
mixture. Add the cheddar
cheese. Add water if needed.
Heat until the cheese is melted
but don't let the soup boil.

Replace the sausage with ham
or just leave meat out altogeth-
er. If you don't have fresh broc-
coli just use frozen and let it
thaw first. You could also use a
frozen mix of broccoli, cauli-
flower and carrots. If your
family doesn't love cheese like
we do around here just cut
down on the cheese or use
Whatever kind you do like.


Tbp Notch eRavut Noodles

1 package chicken flavored Ra-
men noodles
1 can diced tomatoes
Your favorite frozen vegetables
Package lemon pepper tuna
fish (or your favorite)
Salt and pepper

Put tomatoes, vegetables, salt,
lemon pepper and flavor pack-


implementation of this pro-
- gram, with the primary goal
being to have clear and open
communication between our
students and the School Su-
t perintendent. I discuss cur-
rent issues, goals, objectives,
and ideas that I am working
on and get feedback from
r-. this group. I believe it is
. very important for the Su-
in- perintendent of Schools to
stay in touch with all stake-
d holders, with students being
a our main focus. These stu-
ve dents were chosen by their
t peers, teachers, and adminis-.
trators and will serve a one .
year term.

g We arein the process of im-
plementing Skyward, the
ci- new software package that
our district has implemented
ho for our finance records and
l student data. This is an ex-
citing and busy time for all
c of us as we make progress
moving into the new system
that will allow for access to
much needed data for stu-
e dents, parents, teachers, and
administrators to better
serve our students.

I will be in my satellite office
at Old Town Elementary
i- School (Building 6, Room
019) on October 4th, between
e the hours of 8:00-10:00 a.m. I
)et will be at Lily Creek Store on


et from Ramen noodles in a
skillet and cook until vegeta-
bles are done (you may not
need to add salt just taste and
judge for yourself). The last
few minutes let the juice evap-
orate some so they won't be
watery. In the mean time cook
the noodles for 3 minutes.
Drain the noodles and add to
vegetables. Mix well. Add the
tuna. I don't mix the tuna in I
just put in on the top. This is a
quick lunch you can have
ready in minutes.




When your microwave gets a
little yucky just put a bowl of
water in it and heat 3-5 min-
utes and let it sit for a while.
Then just wipe the softened
food splatters up. It only takes
a minute to have a fresh and
sparkly microwave.

In addition to my usual beg-
ging for recipes arid 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


October 5th from 11:00-12:00
to meet with residents of the
Horseshoe area. My location
in Jena will be at Casey's
Cove Convenience Store on
October 19th at 11:00. I will
meet with Suwannee resi-
dents at the Salt Creek
Restaurant on October 21st
at 11:00. My goal is for these
to be more convenient loca-
tions for our residents in the
outlying areas to communi-
cate with the Superintendent
of Schools. However, all citi-
zens are welcome to visit my
Cross City office.

I would like to personally
thank each and every parent
for your support of our chil-
dren's education. We are see
ing a steady increase in
parental involvement and I
believe that is crucial for the
home and school to succeed.
Thanks for your support of
our school system and en-
couraging your child to come
to school, follow school poli-
cies and work hard to be a
successful student. By all of
us pulling in the same direc-
tion, we can truly make a
huge impact on Dixie Coun-
ty!

Since being elected in 2006, it has been my goal to serve the people of Dixie County with
honesty and integrity. As your Commissioner, I have been part of a Board that has worked to
make decisions to benefit and improve our county. Realizing that one board member is
limited on what they can achieve alone, I know that when the common goal is to do what is
"RIGHT" things can and have been accomplished.

Florida State Statutes place many responsibilities on the Board of County Commissioners, so
over the next few weeks, I would like to bring to light many things that have been completed
in the. past four years.

One of the many powers and duties stated in Florida Statute 125.01(m) is to provide and reg-
ulate roads, bridges, placement of signs, lights and other structures. The following is a list of
county roads that have been either re-surfaced, widened and re-surfaced or completely re-
constructed with funding provided through SCRA (Small County Road Assistance Program),
SCOP (Small County Outreach Program) and other funding sources:


*CR 353- 7.8 miles
*CR 358- 7.1 miles


*Old 19 Loop-8.9 miles
*Gornto Springs Rd.- 2 miles


*Spillers Road- 3.3 miles *Veterans Road- 1.1 miles '
*Shired Island Rd-11.4 mi *CR 346A/CR 317-4.9 miles


*Jim Mikell Road- 1.4 miles
*CR 351 A- 2.0 miles
*CR 357/Hines Rd-8.4 miles
*Otis Brannin Loop- 1/2 mile


*Hollis Chewn. Rd.-.5 mi *Rilla Lord Road- 1.5 miles

The following roads are scheduled for paving before the end of the year: Pole Gap Road, NE
152nd Street, and Continental Road.

The Board has worked closely with FDOT to have traffic signals and turn radius installed at
CR 351 A and US 19, and also stoplights have been added at Hwy 351 & 353 (Governor Hill
Lake Road.)

Again, 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


2nd.

keeps her hair so brown.

The brunette combs her hands
through her hair and says, "Oh,
It's natural, it's natural.

Then the bar tender asks the

First Monday of the Month Nature
Walks:

It's fall and time to get out in the woods as the
migration is in full swing. Our first Nhture Walk
of this season will be on Monday, October 4th .
Meet at 9AM at the Refuge Headquarters and --
be sure to bring bug spray, sun screen and wa- -
ter. It's always a good idea to bring a camera, *
too, as there is no telling what interesting
things we might see. Last spring on the last
walk we did in Dixie County we had a very good
look and photo op ...and no one had brought a
camera Just as we were turning around to
start back on the Dixie Mainline a large bird ap-
peared flying along in the woods in the same
direction we were going....it landed in a tree
near the road allowing us a marvelous view of
a Barred Owl. For more information or to let us
know you're coming call me, Joan Stephens at
352-463-1095.'

New Prospect Baptist ha(
great'day Sunday.

We were blessed with a s
from a precious little gir
named Mattie. The song
message told us it isn't w
we do on water-its what
do on land.

Thanks Mattie! We were
blessed with a good serm
from Bro. Dwayne Kight.
His message was on the
tongue. How, as Christiar
we should be careful
what we say and how we
it,always making sure
that what we say doesn't
hurt others.

A wonderful
Man of God, Bro. Alva H

Folks say ,if you think it
,you might as well say it,
He said that is wrong. A

Deuteronomy 30:19 was the mes-
sage the Lord gave Pastor
Richardson to deliver for Sun-
day morning service. A lot of
times we think that our actions
only effect ourselves but God
clearly states in his word that
our choices will determine the
direction of future generations.
God wants us to walk in obedi-
ence so He may bless us and our
family. And one of those bless-
ings for me this week is the
rain! Thank you Jesus for the
rain. As a lot of you know its
time to plant Fall crops so the
rain is greatly needed. Well
there is a special birthday in
the house this week, Pastor
Richardson will be 50 years
young on September 29th. If
you see him around this week
offer him up your best birthday
wishes. Tuesday evening at 7pm
we will have our weekly
Women's Bible Study
These meetings will be held in
the youth building across the
road from the church. Thank
you Ladonna Odom for heading
this group up. We want to en-
courage any youth that is not at-
tending a church at this time to
come out on Wednesday night
and be a part of "Driven" our
youth ministry. This service be-
gins at 7pm. Other service times
are every Sunday morning Sun-


We were glad to see Bro.
Billy and Sis. Penny back
from vacation. Bro. Billy
brought the message Sun-
day
Night from Mathew. What a
great promise from our
d a Lord.
HE tells us to take no
thought for our life, what we
ong will eat or drink, what we
l1 wear or for our body for HE
's cares for us. This is called
'hat FAITH. HE wants us to call
we upon Him and Trust Him to
take care'of every need.
We were saddened by the
death of Bro. Ed. Hart. We,
ion at New Prospect considered
him one of ours.-

ns, We'also have a lot of folks
on our prayer list that have
say needs. Linda Crites was in a
wreck, Irene Mathieu needs
our prayers, Micky Amos is
doing some better, but still
remember her as you Pray.
So many hre hurting. Lets
or- not forget that "OTHERS"
Are our responsibility ac-
cording to Our Heavenly
but Father.

ur- Remember: If you see some-
Irt- one without a SMILE -give
erc them one!


day school begins at 10 am fol-
lowed by morning worship at

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 clairr 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 legitimateclaims, 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 peopleback 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.
