These fish are golden


Old Town's "Pelican Island"
played host to koi lovers
from all over North Central
Florida this weekend. Koi
are not your average 99-cent
goldfish: show specimens
can fetch up to $20,000. While
goldfish were on show and
available this weekend, the
big draw was the larger, col-
orful koi. Prices at the show
ranged from $5.00 all the way
up to $100 for a single fish.


Commission paves the

way for roadwork


At Thursday's regular Coun-
ty Commission meeting,
commissioners tackled
ideas for a possible CDBG
grant. Rita Harris of Harris
Administration said that al-
though initial plans for the
grant were to run water
lines out to 55A, the Town of
Cross City has already com-
pleted their water project,,
and the funds can't be uti-
lized for that. Commissioner
Hatch said, "I'm all for
paving, Miss Rita."
County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy expressed worry for the
County's bottom line, say-
ing, "My concern is that we
have to have a county
match," for the grant funds.
Chairman Marvin.Hunt opt-
ed in favor of paving roads,.
saying, "I'd like to see us
move forward with the
paving. More people would
get the benefit out of that."
Commissioner Troy John-
son agreed with Cassidy's
budget concern but said,
"The more we pave, the less
we have to pay to grade, and
that's a benefit to every-
body," and the Commission
voted to go after the grant to
pave "dusty roads.".
Phil Bishop updated the
Board on projects underway,
including the resurfacing of
CR 349 North in Old Town,
which is underway. The new
planned County turn lanes
at 351 and Purvis landing
were able to come in under
budget by doing the work in
coordination with the DOT
re-paving project. He said
that the permits for the
Gornto Springs project have
been resubmitted to Suwan-
nee River Water Manage-
ment District and that the
DEP did not meet their


deadline to return approvals
on the Horseshoe Beach
boat ramp project.
Big Bend Water Manage-
ment presented their annual
budget. Although the dis-
trict was awarded 2.4 mil-
lion dollars in stimulus
money, Big Bend will be in-
creasing customer rates for
the upcoming budget year.
Suwannee residents are to
be spared higher water bills,
though. Buddy Lamb pre-
sented Suwannee's annual
budget, and said "Our board
has adopted a balanced bud-
get, and I want to dispelany
rumors--no rate increase is
projected for the coming
year."
Building and Zoning official
John Jenkins presented a
request for a site develop-
ment plan approval for
Cross City Church of God's
Proposed 10,000 square foot
new church. Commissioners
Hatch and Johnson ab-'
stained from the vote, say-
.ing that they were members
of that church. Chairman
Hunt joked that "We may
not have enough for a quo-
rum, then," but the request
was approved. Jenkins up-
dated the Board on an ongo-
ing code enforcement issue
with the Holt home in
Suwannee. Unpermitted
structures were built over
the water, and permitted as
a "boathouse" but a living
unit was actually built with-
out county approval. FEMA
gave the county "an ultima-
tum" about the issue, and
the Board agreed to instruct
the County Attorney to
write a letter requesting
that FEMA not- issue flood
insurance on the offending
structures.

ed it's 19th anniversary with
a free music "Bash" on Sat-

ranged from old-time gospel

rock favorites. Toys for Tots


and the DCHS band used the
opportunity to do a little
fundraising. Toys for Tots'
"taco in a bag" was an off-

2010 Dixie County Advocate


Judge jails lawyer


I've heard of judges over-extending their authority to
impose contempt of court charges, and I find that most
irritating.-I recall an incident awhile back when a
judge, I think it was in Orange County, was having
lunch in a restaurant when he ordered a Highway Pa-
trolman, also having lunch, to turn down his radio.
No, the officer was not listening to his favorite rock'
station, it was his two-way communication with the
dispatcher that annoyed the judge. When the officer
failed to comply, the judge cited him for contempt of
court.

What court? I was not aware that a judge's immediate
surroundings consisted of a courtroom wherever he
went. A comedian could have a lot of fun with that
concept, but I'llleave that to task to Jeff Foxworthy
In the courtroom, on the other hand, the judge is in
charge. And he (or she) has a lot of flexibility in how
things are conducted. I'm reminded of a judge who or-
dered someone appearing before him (I forget for what
reason) to get a job. This was years before the current
recession, and jobs just weren't that hard to find. Ap-
parently, the guy did, because I never heard any more
about it.

A more recent incident occurred in Mississippi last
week. When Chancellor Talmadge Littlejohn called for
all present to stand and recite the Pledge of Alle-
giance, attorney Danny Lampley refused. Littlejohn
ordered him arrested, saying that to restore his good
standing in the court, he would have to recite the
Pledge in open court, presumably from, a standing po-
sition. Otherwise, he could spend some time in the lo-
cal lockup for criminal contempt.

Lampley did a short stint in the cooler, but apparently
he posted bond, got himself a lawyer, or whatever was
necessary to'spring him, and I haven't heard any more
and don't really expect to. However I have no doubt
that the ACLU is even now working diligently in his
behalf, just as they do for anyone who exhibits disloy-
alty to the United States or contempt for Christianity
People like Danny Limpley...excuse me, Lathpley, real-
ly annoy me. I recall being at a sporting event and
watching nearly everybody rise for the National An-
them, including a young man in a wheelchair who had
difficulty getting to his feet. However, there were a few
able-bodied but weak-minded bozos who slumped lazi-
ly in their seats while citizens worthy of the designa-
tion showed the proper respect. I've also seen similar
disrespect shown for the Pledge of Allegiance and
have found it difficult to exhibit a socially acceptable
degree of restraint in such circumstances.

I have an idea that Chancellor Talmadge Littlejohn,
and not attorney Danny Lampley, will be who gets the
official reprimand in this case. That's because the
higher up the chain of command you go in the legal
system, the more Christians and patriots get shot
down.

Consider the case of Westboro "Baptist" Church, the
cult that protests at military funerals (I'll be having
more to say about that sleazy outfit), and of course
California's infamous 9th Circuit Court.

Nonetheless, I heartily commend Chancellor Little-
john for his ethically appropriate treatment of a
lawyer who obviously enjoys the freedoms he also ex-
ploits in this country--thanks to better men than him
(and more that a few women as well) who risk their
lives in defense of our freedoms. If more of the sleeze-
bags who trash our country and its heritage received
that kind of treatment, we'd all be better off. It's just
too bad the judge couldn't keep this one in jail a little
longer.

When Pickles go crunch...


by Kathy McKinney

believe it was Rahm Emmanuel who said,
'Never let a good crisis go to waste." Boy,
ahm would have had a good time around my
ace this week. It's been crazy train on
steroids. This is one of those columns that's
aU about my personal life, so if you're looking
for insightful right-wing political commentary, you should
probably skip to Mr. Prater's column.

My commercial appraisal work has been busy, which is
good, but since I have to sort of jam it into
the unoccupied corners of time left over
from getting the paper out and raising 'F
three kids, it can be a challenge. Having a C.
few appraisals to do in the pipeline means '
I have to give.up "optional" activities like
sleeping and laundry. So if I look a little
wrinkled and tired this week, cut me some
slack. I'm also having to finish my 30 -
hours of appraising continuing education
in the next few weeks. The government
mandated that back during the "appraiser-
caused" S&L crisis with strict licensing
rules, intended to stop any sort of banking
crisis from happening again. (Yeah, how's
that working for you r
Uncle Sam? Brilliant strategy. Very effec-
tive.)

Work at the paper has been really busy, too.
For those of you who don't know through Facebook gossip, I
bought Jay and Chris' half of the Advocate this week. That
meant extra paperwork and running around, but it's all
done now so I guess I can't get fired for saying something
stupid or something that makes the wrong politico mad.
(Sorry, politicos, but you've been warned.) Nothing will
change that you should notice. The paper will still be in
your mailbox (hopefully on time), I'll still be writing in this
box, and I'll probably still mess up ads when I get behind
and overwhelmed. I "shall endeavor to persevere," as the In-
dian guy in Josey Wales says.

Tuesday night, after yet another .insanely crazy Tuesday
deadline day, I had finally gotten the kids off to bed and sat'
down to watch a little Glenn Beck with my favorite adult
beverage around 10:30. Glenn had barely finished his mono-
logue when I heard a gigantic *thump* from one of the kids'
rooms, followed by crying. Now, those of you with kids know
that this is not unusual. I figured somebody had stuck out of
bed and some sort of chaos was in the works. I was right.

I went back to Georgia's room, and the kids met me in the
hallway. Pickle was crying, so of course, I looked at Georgia


Dear Editor,

This November 2, we will take
to the polls to vote on our local
commissioners, our state rep-
resentatives, and many other
subjects and topics.

Also on your ballot will be
many Constitutional Ballots
for you to read and vote on.
One amendment, in particular,
(Amendment 4) has caught the
eye, of those for the amend-
ment and against it, across the
state of Florida.

Here is what Amendment 4
will look like on your ballot, on
Nov. 2

TITLE: Referenda required for
adoption and amendment of lo-
cal government comprehensive
land use plans.

BALLOT SUMMARY: Estab-
lishes that before a local gov-
ernment may adopt a new com-
prehensive land use plan, or
amend a comprehensive land
use plan, the proposed plan or
amendment shall be subject to
vote of the electors of the local
government by referendum,
following preparation by the
local planning agency, consid-
eration by the governing body
and notice.

If Amendment 4 passes, then
this change to the Florida Con-
stitution would require a tax-
payer funded referendum to
EVERY SINGLE CHANGE in a
local government comprehen-
sive plan. This means, that the-
public will even go to the polls
to vote on things such as
drainage, future land use
plans, solid waste, housing ele-
ment, traffic circulation ele-
ment..... and the list goes on
and on.

This will be all at the taxpay-
ers' expense.

According to Florida state
records, in fiscal year 2006
alone, there were 6,406 amend-
ments to local comprehensive
plans. If Amendment 4 passes,
taxpayer-funded referendums
for all such changes will be re-
quired.

If voters are asked to vote on
all major, and minor, develop-
ment changes then that means
more elections/trips to the
polls which means more tax
dollars are being spent to hold
these elections. And where will
the local government get the
extra dollars to pay for these
elections? FROM THE TAX-


and said, "OK, what did you do?" Of course, I got the stan-
dard "It wasn't my fault!" (Note nobody was saying exactly
what wasn't her fault.) My interrogation of the witnesses
was interrupted by the pitch of the boy's crying. He's not a
crier, really. Once a few years ago, he fell while playing in
the kitchen and fell onto the open dishwasher. A fork stuck
in his arm. He came to me, crying, and I said, you're fine, do
you need a band-aid? He said no. I got the neosporin and by
some chance, turned his arm over to realize that the fork
had gone all the way through thefat and skin on his arm,
leaving puncture wounds on entry and exit. The kid pulled
it out himself and never told me. (Thank the Lord, because I
probably would have passed out.)

ANYWAY, like I was saying, he's a tough little
Pickle, and he was standing there in the hallway,
holding his arm and crying more than normal,
so I grabbed a bag of frozen broccoli and stuck it
on his arm and called my sister. She recommend-
ed taking the Pickle out to Rescue 1 where her
husband Clay works to have him make sure it
wasn't broken. We swapped out the broccoli for
real ice, aid rushed off, the kids still in their
barefoot and in pajamas. Clay, sadly, could not as-
sure me it wasn't broken and suggested we head
to Perry to the E.R. to get it x-rayed. Well, we did,
and it was broken in two places, in a straight,
clean line right across his ulna and radius a few
inches above his wrist.

As we travelled back and forth to the ER, be-
tween counting deer on the side of the highway I
got the whole story. Instead of lying in bed where they were
supposed to be, Georgia was giving Mitchell piggy-back
rides around her bedroom and one thing led to another, and
they were spinning around, and he got spun off onto the
hard wood floor. Pickle claims Georgia was wearing high
heels at the time. He also claims she "made him" do the pig-.
gy back rides. He wanted to be in bed sleeping like a good lit-
tle boy, but she forced him to get up and play piggy-back.
Yeah. right. And I got a title on the Suwannee River Bridge
to sell if you're interested.

And to top off my crisis week, my mailbox bandito struck
again. Yes, again. What did they steal? Checks? Money? The
ten ounces of physical gold I wish I could order from Gold-
line to prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse? Per-
haps a movie from Netflix? No. Some idiot committed a fed-
eral crime, probably a felony, by reaching his hand down in
my locked mailbox and stealing afree granola bar sample.
He ate it and stuck the empty box back in with my mail., so
I'd know I'd been robbed. How pathetic is that? How low do
you have to be to steal what is given away, free, for the ask-
ing? Maybe my week hasn't been that bad, after all.


PAYERS!


According
to several .
websites,
the Flori-
da Cham- 7
ber of .. ..
Commerce
asked
leading
econo-
mists to
study the
impact of
Amend-
ment 4.
The study
indicated
that "Amendment 4 would like-
ly put more than 267,000
Floridians out of work, shrink
Florida's economic output by
more than $34 billion annually
and take nearly $12 billion out
of the pockets of working fam-
ilies." Mark Wilson, President
of the Florida Chamber of
Commerce stated, "If you like
,the recession, you'll love
Amendment 4."
According to The Orlando Sen-
tinel, "The cost to local govern-
ments of [Amendment 4]
would soar into the millions.."

St. Pete Beach has been dubbed
the "Poster Child" for what is
wrong with Amendment 4.
They adopted their own local
version of Amendment 4 back
in 2006. The city has since in-
curred about $300,000 in law-
suits defending itself against a
series of related lawsuits.
The town has since relaxed its
law, to some degree, allowing
some things to not go to public
vote, and be handled within
the local government.

The problem with Amendment
4 is, IF it passes, there is NO
relaxing the law, once the full
impact hits us. Amendment 4
is a STATE amendment, mean-
ing we will be stuck with it,
whether we like it or not.
VOTE NO ON 4 and tell your "
friends to do the same.
AMENDMENT 4 WILL RAISE
OUR TAXES.

Sincerely,

tor of the Madison County
newspaper :)-ed


Jefferson, Wakul-
la, Baker, Hamil-
Ston, Union, Tay-
lor, Leon, Mari-
on, Nassau and
Putnam; in addi-
tion to many oth-
er districts
across the state
that value their
"Right to Vote"
the Superienten-
dent in or out of
office.


Dear Editor:
What makes our country great
and free are the rights that our
forefathers set up when this
country was founded. Many of
our soldiers have fought and
died to preserve these rights. At
the top of this list of freedoms is
our "Right to Vote." Oui vote
lets the people decide what form
of governing body'they want
AND who they want.to run it.

SOur county has always had .
'elected officials, including the.
Superintendent of Schools. The
Superintendent of Schools an-
swers directly to the people in
the county This is a full-time po-
sition dedicated to seeing that
our students are academically
prepared to meet the challenges
of the future. The State holds
the Superintendent accountable
for seeing that the school system
runs efficiently within their
budget, and that student perfor- \
mance meets or exceeds the
state-set standards. If these stan-
dards are not met, the State can
withhold the Superintendent's
salary and can even remove
him/her from office. However,
the people of the county have
even more control in that they
can VOTE the person out of of-
fice.

School board members, on the
other hand, have different re-
sponsibilities.which include ap-
proving a balanced budget and
developing policies that will give
the school system direction both
academically and physically.
The Superintendent is responsi-
ble for submitting a budget and
carrying out Board Policy Most
School Board members hold oth-
er jobs and are not as accessible
to the public as the Superinten-
dent on a day-to-day basis.

Most appointed Superintendents
are in larger counties. Most
small districts prefer to elect
their Superintendents. The fol-
lowing counties that surround
us have elected Superintendents:
Gilchrist, Levy, Columbia,
Lafayette, Suwannee, Madison,


Not too long ago,
Alachua-County
drew up a con-
tract and ap-
pointed a Superientendent after
months of searching, A Short
time later, they decided that he
was not the person for the job
and had to "buy out" his con-
tract, costing hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars. Our small
county of Dixie does not have
that kind of money in its budget
to correct that kind of mistake
Putnam County has (in the past)
also put the "appointed" Super-
intendent on the ballot, and the
people exercised their right and
voted it down. Again, at their
last board meeting a citizen
brought the issue up again to
put it back on the ballot...and
the Putnam County School
Board voted it down.

I value my "right to vote." An
ordinary citizen's vote is just as
valuable as a millionaire's. I will
never compromise my "right to
vote" by having an elected offi-
cial "appointed," because I know
that a select few will have influ-
ence over the process instead of
the voting majority of the coun-
ty
Be proud that you have the
!'right to vote" and vote often!
Through this process, "We the
People" will choose who we
want to serve us.
Citizen with Grandchildren in
our School System,
Dennis W Bennett
Mr Bennett:

I'd argue that representatives,
appointed by an elected body, are
what the Founding Fathers had
in mind. This is why we're a Con-
situtional Republic and not a di-
rect democracy, which always
leads to de Tocqueville's "Tyran-
ny of the Majority." Prior-to the
17th Amendment, U.S. Senators
were appointed by states, as I'm
sure you know, and goodness
knows, electing them with popu-
lar votes certainly hasn't exactly
been a resounding success. My
voice gets heard a lot better when
calling fve elected Board mem-
bers than it does trying to get the
attention of 4,000 voters.-ed

This newly formed county
agency, spearheaded by
chairman Charlie Forna-

this past September 28th.
Their agenda included a
progress report on obtain-
ing permits, inspections,
acquisition of materials and
the logistics of. building an
artificial reef off of the
Dixie County coastline. Lo-
cal companies have gra-
ciously offered to donate.
-tons of 'rip-rap' to use for

This week we didn't have a
scheduled ride with our Levy
County Horse Club members.
Our next scheduled ride is set
for October 23rd at the Tidewa-
ter Trailhead. This will be our
10th annul Breast Cancer
Awareness Trail Ride to be held
in Goethe State Forest. Our
Levy County Horse Club has al-
ways worked hard for our com-
munities, especially on this our
annual benefit trail ride that
draws riders from all over the
state. Your welcomed to come
out for this event and partici-
pate. Our close work with
Shands Cancer Center has al-
lowed us to make
sure the funds
that we have
raised will stay in
our community
to help our neigh-
bors who really
need our help. I
am really proud
of that fact. After
all doesn't charity
begin in our own
backyards?

SDave and I did manage.to get
away for a short ride at Goethe
State Forest on Sunday. We
loaded up our boys and headed
out for a great morning of trail
riding in which we dearly need-
ed some fun and exercise.

The trails wind for 100 miles,
through three tracts of
Goethe's nearly 50,000-acre state
forest. You can ride through
pine plantations and old growth
longleaf pine forest. There is a
large equestrian campground
at the Tidewater trailhead off
CR 337, northwest of Dunnel-
lon, and trailheads at Apex and
Black Prong. Threading
through pine flat woods around
cypress domes, the trail system
ranges from loops of 2.5 miles
to 10.5 miles. At Apex the tracts
are of old-growth longleaf.
pines there are five different
.loop trails, from 4.5 miles to
11.7 miles. At Black Prong,
where vast forests have been
mowed down for restoration of
the forest back to a sandhill
habitat, there are three marked
trails, from 3 to 10 miles in
length.

Today we are at Tidewater trail-
head. The trails are well
marked and easy to follow even
if it's your very first visit. I am
afraid I am not one to be very
good at leading on a trail as I

I i


am not generally known for
* finding my way out of a paper
bag. Having said that I find that
I am always comfortable at
Tidewater. I know these trails
well and as I've said they are
extremely well marked.

We led the horses out of the
trailer and tacked them up with
saddles andbridles. The weath-
er is quite cool and our horses
are a bit frisky. It appears they
are anxious to get down the
trail and so am I. So off we go
at a brisk gait. I'm on my sweet
little gelding Coby and Dave is
on his Tennessee Walker,
Sporty The horses are feeling
their oats today, eager to lope
down the trail and explore. I
have to say we make a stunning
pair!

Riding in the great
outdoors of Flori-
da is a marvelous
experience as you
are all aware. I
would not trade
any of this for any
other state. Sure
S the mountains out
.;. west are beautiful,
but who could ride
there all year long
without getting frostbite! I'll
stick with Florida and ride
most of the year rain or shine
or cold. I always feel much
warmer in the woods as I ride. I
don't know if it's because
you're enclosed in the thick
woods or if I'm just enjoying .
myself so much I'm not aware
of the cold. In any case, I do be-
lieve Florida has a lot to offer
the equestrian rider under
mostly sunny skies.

Today was a great ride, the.
weather was cool and I just love
this time of year. I am feeling
invincible,.no boogers jumped
out of the palmetto bushes to
disrupt our ride. Thank good-
ness I stayed in the saddle.
There are normally plenty of
deer hidden deep in the forest,
but we only saw a couple that
ventured out today

Later as I unsaddled Coby and
rewarded him with a cookie, I
asked him if he enjoyed the
ride. He looked at me through
dark inquisitive eyes and.I..
think he was laughing at m ii
Now who can resist such a
charming character? Actually I
think he was just saying he too
enjoyed the ride. Email us for:
more information at levy2@fla-
horse.com. Until next time...
happy trails to you!

From COMMISSION, pg 1
Suwannee resident Sandra
Prescott appeared to request
for a waiver in order to peti-
tion the Board for a permit
for a mobile home park.
County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison said, "What she's
asking the Board to do...it
says you must wait for a
year before you can re-peti-
tion. She's asking you may
she petition during the one
year time frame," due to
health issues. Commissioner
Hatch said, "I'm all for creat-
ing jobs and businesses and
I move we vote to allow it,"
and the motion as approved.
Kay McCallister appeared to
remind Commissioners to
encourage residents to vote
for the 2% tourism develop-
ment tax that will be on the
ballot in November. Mike
Cassidy praised her work,
saying, "this is all volun-
teers and this is one of the
best councils I've ever
worked with."
Joyce and Curtis Highsmith
appeared to discuss con-
cerns about water runoff
near their home on CR 351
south and Bowlegs Mainline.
Commissioner Johnson said
that it might be possible to
get a "storm water grant" in
the future, and that "this is
the same think we're work-
ing on on US 19." Chairman
Hunt agreed, saying that
"There are plans for all that,
but it's going to take some
time."

undergo hundreds of hours
of training for a volunteer
job that doesn't pay at all.
Alexander said that "This is
a problem that's going to
come up with grants and in-
surance rates," in the future.
Alexander continued that
new ambulances have been
ordered and all should be in
by April or May.
County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy brought up the county
employee's union contract,
and the Board voted to table
it again for the time being.
Cassidy said that he had
been asked to present the
County with information
that the annex building to
Evans Square that used to
house the old "Pink Theater"
was for sale and that the
owner was willing to accept
offers and that the current
asking price was $198,500.
Commissioner Mark Hatch
said that a contract had just
been signed on the property
on Thursday and that the
building was off the market.
Cassidy thanked the Board
for it's attention to the limi-
tations of the budget, saying,
"You've been very careful
this year," and that "makes it'
easier for us."
Jennifer Ellison brought up

MILITARY
MOMENTS
WITH TANK

US NAVY TURNS 245
YEARS OLD

The US Navy traces its ori-
gin to the Continental Navy,
which was
established
during the
Revolution-
ary War. The
US constitu-
tion provid-
ed the legal
basis for a
military
force by giv-
ing Congress the power "to
provide and maintain a
navy".
In the early stages of the
Revolutionary War, estab-
lishing a navy was a topic of
great debate in Congress.
Supporters argued that a
Navy could protect the
coast, while others opposed
the idea, not wanting to
challenge the British Royal
Navy, the worlds most pow-
erful navy.
Commander in Chief
George Washington com-
missioned seven cruisers
(which belonged to the
colonies) to intercept '
British supply ships and re-
ported their capture to Con-
gress, thus ending any fur-
ther debate. Then an addi-
tional plan to equip two
ships under the direct au-


Wednesday night special

mt gt, ta x


thority of Congress, to cap-
ture British supply ships
was carried out. On October
13, 1775 George Washington
reported that he had taken
command of three armed
British ships. A resolution
was quickly passed to add
more ships and was adopted
on October 13, which would
come to be recog-
nized as the US
Navy's official
birthday.
The Navy saw lit-
Stle action in WWI,
but became a for-
midable force in
the years prior to
WWII. After the
attack on Pearl
Harbor, the Navy grew
tremendously as the US was
faced with a two-front war
on the seas. It achieved
much success in the Pacific
theater, where it was instru-
mental to the allies "island-
hopping" campaign. The
Navy participated in many
significant battles including
the Battle of the Corral Sea,
Midway, Okinawa, and
many others.
By August 1945, the navy
was operating 6,768 ships.
Presently, the Navy oper-
ates 289 ships, many nuclear
powered, and more than.
3700 aircraft, 330,729 person-
nel, and a fleet tonnage
greater than that of the next
13 largest navies combined!
Happy Birthday to the US
Navy and those who are
serving, or have served.

County Commissioner District 4
II


Since being elected in 2006, it has been my goal to
serve the people of Dixie County with honesty and in-
tegrity. 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, and one of the many I
powers and duties stated in Florida 125.01(f) is to gm-
vide parks, preserve plavarounds, and recreational
areas. Florida Statute 125.01 (j) states the BHoard will
establish and administer programs for Flood, Beach Erosion and Storm water drainage. The last four
years I have diligently Worked with the Board to ensure that we have met this goal by completing
the following projects:
MPLETED *Jena Boat Ramp
*Joe Anderson Park fishingg pier at Shired Island Park
*349 Seawall In Suwannee 'Barber Avenue Drainage Project
*Rock Bluff Boat ramp, seawall and dock *Recreational facilities upgrade at Gornto
'Recreational Facilities upgrade at Shired Springs Park
S Island Park NEW LAND ACQUISIONS
'Yellow Jacket Recreational Area
CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCONSpurgeon Cheek Property (Jena)
*Installation of Box culvert and reshaping of 'Four (4) additional acres for recreational use
the Belly Deep/Airport Canal storm water at Gomto Springs
drainage *Demory Creek Pardng area
Seawall and culvert replacement at Bay
Drive & Oak Street In Suwannee All of the above mentioned projects were primarily funded
through the following resources: FBIP (Florida Boating Im-
HASE 1 PLANNING & PERMITTING COMPLETED: provement Program), FRDAP(Florida RecreationDelp
*Demory Creek Boat Ramp (Suwannee) Assistance Program), FCT (Florida Communities hist), NRCS
*Horseshoe Beach Park Boat Ramp (National Resource Conservation Services), and SRWMD
*Horseshoe Beach Main Street Boat Ramp (Suwannee River Water Management District)

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.
SiTcerely, { 7o

Lessons Learned From a
Snake, a Cake, and an Apple

by Jean V Dickson

I don't remember the argument.
It's the rage, frustration, and
anger I remember. Forty-five
years later, I still have no clue
WHY I was so angry with my
mother.

I do remember something, how-
ever. At three years old, revenge
wasn't in my vocabulary but it
was in my heart.

Outside on a sunny day a slith-
ering line of brown ripples
through lush green grass. I've
found my perfect revenge. A
garter snake! Even whispering
the word, snake, Is enough to
make my mother shiver and
shfiek.

Racing to the door; up goes the
mail slot; in goes the snake.

I sit down and giggle. I wrap my
arms around myself and giggle
some more. I almost wet myself
with delight I'm so eager for my
mothers coming fright. In my
imagination I see Mom walking,
suddenly stopping, face turning
white, mouth opening, a horri-
fied howl.

I would like to say I heard a
scream. I would like to say my
revenge was satisfied.

I can't.

Instead I waited for the scream.
Wait. Wait. Wait.

Fast forward ten years. Once
again I'm waiting waiting for
my sister's fiancee to get out of
the bathroom. He carefully
brushes strands of hair forward
to cover his bald spot. I watch
him spray until his hair's a sol-
id mat of fastidious fibres stu-
diously cemented to the crown
of his head like a rooster's
comb.

Later, I have the pleasure of
watching him water ski.
Speedos several sizes too small -
partially hidden by an overlap-
ping stomach dancing to the
drum-beat thump of skis hitting
waves, varnished mat of hair
flapping p and down in the
- breeze. -

To say I like Don would be like
saying a person with a sensitive
nose likes the smell of wet
burlap bags.

At dinner I notice Don shaking
the pepper over his food. And I
get an idea for payback. There,
on the table, a single slice of
birthday cake remains. I'll play
a nice little girl and give that
slice to Don. But I can't just give
him plain vanilla cake. I have to
spice it up.

I lift the icing and add pepper. I
even scoop out part of the cake
and scoop in a teaspoon of pep-
per. Carefully I reassemble the
cake. My brilliant alterations
are barely noticeable.

Inr -nce exuding from my
far i an angel, bearing a gift
in iands. I offer the cake to
D( lifts a fork to his lips.

I ai pate a cough, cake spew-
ing across the table, Don's eyes
watering from the strength of
the spice.


I wait. And wait. And wait.

In the years past I've often won-
dered if Don saw me doctoring
his cake and decided to spoil my
plan by showing absolutely no
reaction at all. Or was he so
used to pepper he never even
noticed additional seasoning!
Or, perhaps, like my mother,
Don was wise enough to know
that revenge, like pepper, is a
disappointing dish. It's best not
served at all?

Let's go back to when I was
three years old, sitting on the
front porch, waiting for Mom to
scream. Mom heard the bronze
mail flap shut CRACK. Look-
ing into the hall, she sees IT!
Her first instinct is to scream.
'But my giggling gives me away.
If she screams, I'll learn to rev-
el in revenge. If'she berates me,
well... all that will do is build a
wall of anger between us.

Mom steps over the snake,
opens the hall closet, gets her
broom. Sweep, sweep, sweep -
down the stairs and out the
back door. One reptile out the
door, the other giggling on the
front porch.

Mom always said, "Things done
in spite don't turn out right."

I heard it often enough. Too bad
I didn't 'hear' it I never
learned from the hearing so I
had to learn from the hurting.

'Let's go back in time. I'm not
three. I'm not 13. I'm 18 this
time.

Saturday morning tasks my
mind isn't on scouring the pans,
wiping the sink, water pooling
on the floor. Instead, I'm think-
ing of the dress I made my sis-
ter. Gail's difficult to buy
clothes for no waist, no hips.
You could say she's not a
woman of substance. Most
things don't look good on her.
Then there are her allergies -
only 100% cotton will do.

I knew the dress was going to
look good on her before she
even slipped it over her head. It
did. It looked more than good.
Gail was gorgeous!

I finish wiping the counters,
grab the garbage, step down the
stairs and out the back door. I
lift the lid to the garbage can
not concentrating on task at
hand that grey blue fabric sure
did change Gail's blah.blue eyes
to bright blue.

Grey blue fabric. Grey blue fab-
ric!!??!! What's it doing in the
garbage can?

Drenched and dripping from my
hands, the remains of Gail's
beautiful blue dress. Cut to
pieces, soaked in salad dressing.
My masterpiece! All my work;
all my planning; all the hours
away from TV and telephone
working to make her beautiful.

Why did she do it? Revenge! It
had to be. Just another instance
of getting back at Mom through
me.

My childish pranks the snake,
the cake aren't such fun any-
more. Revenge is a lovely apple
if you overlook the worms.

I'm not three or 13. And I'm cer-
tainly not thin anymore. I still


wrestle with rage, frustration,
and anger. However, revenge is-
n't as.tasty as it once was. Now I
know the apple's weet but the
worms silence your heart.

You never get revenge; it gets
you.
Revenge, like a wormy apple, is
best left on the ground.

CHURCH
Before I get to the upcoming
events I want to tell you about
our service Sunday morning.
Thru Pastor Richardson the
Holy Spirit gave a powerful mes-
sage. You have probably heard
or even used this term before "I
pled the blood of Jesus" but do
you really know the power in
which that statement contains?
When you receive Jesus Christ
as your Lord and Savior than
it's as if you have a legal con-
tract between you and the Fa-
ther Anyone covered by the
blood of Jesus has divine pro-
tection. If you want to know
how to become a child of God
and get under His protection
than please call 352-498-3929 or if
you want to request prayer and
have internet access go to our
website at
www.crosscityphc.org.

October 16th Freedom Fest will
be held at the Chiefland Assem-
bly of God located on the Mana-
tee Spring Road. Refreshments
will begin at 5pm and service at
7pm. Looking ahead on October
31st will be our annual Fall Fes-
tival. Mr. Clint Murray can
make an awesome hobo stew!
You don't want to miss it!

Our Driven Youth Ministry
building got a new facelift here
recently you need to come check
that out, it looks really great!

I seen a church sign this week


that I thought I would share, it
read You don't have to pray
"proper"; you just need to talk to
God.

This is so true... God just wants
us to talk to Him sometimes.
He wants to hear how are day
is, to hear about something new
that happened at work, or to
know about something that


makes you excited or nervous.
Just talk.

Service times are Sunday School
10 am, Morning Worship Ser-
vice 11am, Evening Praise Ser-

County. I'm married to Stephanie Leon
Holifield and we have 3 children Evan(5)
,Grant (4) and Anna (2).

WHATDOIDO?
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.




WHY DO 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 I DO 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.

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

I WON'T:
Be anyone's yes man. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
Respectively submitted,
Be intimidated by other board members or
be influenced to support their agenda. /
