Levy County jury

awards daughter
of smoker $80
million

A Bronson jury awarded Di-
ane Webb $80 million dollars
on Tuesday as compensation
for the death of her father,
James Horner, who died in
1996 after smoking for sixty
years. $72 million dollars
was for punitive damages to
R.J. Reynolds, and the re-
maining $8 million in com-
pensatory. damages.

Mr. Horner reportedly
smoked Lucky Strike, Pall
Mall, Kool, Camel and Win-
ston cigarettes since he was
17 years old. Webb is repre-
sented by Searcy, Denney,
Scarola, Barnhart & Shipley,
a West Palm Beach Law
firm.

R.J. Reynolds will probably
appeal the verdict.

Dixie calls "bomb squad"

DCSO gets help from Alachua County and the
Navy to dispose of Marine Marker found by
hunters near Rocky Creek


At approximately 10:15am,
Sunday morning, the Dixie
County Sheriff's Office re-
ceived information from two
hunters about a possible ex-
plosive device they found in
the area of the Sink Creek
road near Rocky Creek. The
deputy referred what infor-
mation he had to the
Alachua County Sheriff's Of-
fice Bomb Squad and the
Navy Explosive Ordnance
Disposal Team from Jack-
sonville, Florida. The deputy
wasinformed that the device
was a White Phosphorous
Marker and is moisture sen-
sitive and that the device
should not be handled until a
technician arrived.


When ASO Bomb Squad
Technician, Sgt. Morran ar-
rived, it was determined that
the device was in fact inert.
Sgt. Morran readied the de-
vice for transport and noti-
fied the Navy Ordnance Dis-
posal Team. The device was
then forwarded to the Navy
Ordnance Disposal Team in
Mayport for proper disposi-
tion and disposal.

,Marine Locator Markers are
quite common and are used
by the Coast Guard and Navy
to mark targets, drift pat-
terns'and tidal flow. The
MLM posed no danger to the
public.

Panthers get bear-caught


44-34 win over Newberry finishes up season


by Angel Lee


The Bears traveled to New-
berry on Friday night to
play the last game of the
season. Senior night in New-
berry turned out to be a
wild one.

The Panthers hit paid dirt
first, but the Bears fought
hard, and with 2 kickoff re-
turn fumble recoveries, took
a 17-14 lead into halftime.

The second half was a scor-
ing extravaganza as both
teams combined for 47
points. Senior Michael West
ran for 247 yards and 3
Touchdowns, and Kirby


Roberts threw two touch-
down passes as the Bears
fought and clawed their way
to a 44-34 victory over the
Panthers. Junior Washing-
ton also had 2 TD's. The
game had a total of seven
lead changes.

With 1:26 left to go in the
game, Coach Wilkerson
changed the play up, and
Mike West took the handoff
from Senior QB Kirby
Roberts And took off run-
ning down the sidelines,
avoiding the Panthers de-
fenders, for a 49 yard touch-
down and sealingathe victo-
ry for the Bears.


"I'm Extremely happy",
Coach Wilkerson stated.
"When we lost a couple of
games there and fell out of
the district race, our guys
could have hung our heads,
but we didn't. We came back
and we fought hard, our
young kids got better, and
our Seniors kept fighting
hard and we ended up win-
ning our last three games, so
I'm extremely proud of
them."

The victory gave the Bears a
winning record as they end-
ed the season with a 6-4
'record.

Miami man arrested with stolen semi

Loose brake, no license prompts deputy to dig deeper


On Monday night at
approximately
10:20PM, while on
routine patrol, a
deputy noticed a.
Williams Brothers
Trucking Company
truck traveling on
U.S. 19. The deputy
also noticed that a
brake caliber on the
trailer, was hanging
loose underneath the
trailer. At this point,
the deputy initiated a
traffic stop on the
truck and identified
the driver as Billy
:Ray Henderson of Mi-
ami. It was also learned
that Henderson's license
was suspended. The deputy


then became more suspi-
cious and had Cross City Po-
lice respond to Williams
Brothers Trucking where


they observed evi-
dence of burglary and
theft. At this point,
the deputy continued
his investigation with
Henderson during
which time he con-
firmed that the driver
had in fact burglar-
ized and stolen the
truck from WBT.


Henderson was arrest-
ed for Burglary of a
Conveyance, Felony
Criminal Mischief
and Grand Theft. He
was transported to the
Dixie County Jail to be
booked on the above
charges.


Dixie honors veterans


by Tank Lee


The 9th annual Veter-
ans Day Parade & Cer-
emony took place on
Thursday, Nov ilth:
The festivities started
with a parade dowii
main street (Hwy 19).
Leading the parade, as
always, was the color

League detachment 1018 &
Auxilary, AMVETS post 422,
Cruising for Grins car club,
Southern cruisers, and other
veterans in vehicles, on mo-
torcycles, or walking. A good.
crowd lined the street and
waved flags (donated by Deb-
bie Lee) as the veterans
passed by.

The ceremony at the flag


pole in the middle of town
started with approximately
150 people in attendance, in-
cluding some local elected of-
ficials, who took the time to
support our veterans.
After being welcomed and
thanked by event coordinator
Tank Lee, City Councilman
Herbert Hurst, and County
Commissioner Marvin Hunt
(both are veterans), an open-
ing prayer was delivered by
Church of God pastor Rev.
Ed Ivey. The guests were


then enter-
tained by a
military
melody per-
formed by the
DCHS band.


Shauna Clark
sang the Na-
tional An-
them as the
flag was
raised by
members of
DAV Chapter
63, American
Legion Post
383 Auxilary,
and the SAL (Sons of the Le-
gion). Guest speaker, Cross
City native and Navy Cap-
tain, William W. "Trey"
Wheeler III took center stage
and delivered a fantastic
speech that was enjoyed by
all. After the traditional play-
ing of "Taps", everyone took
time to meet and greet Capt.

Cry me a river,


Nancy

Nobody expected the Democrats to hang on to the House of
Representatives, and I don't know if anybody thought Nan-
cy Pelosi was going to surrender the Speaker's job like a
good sport. Frankly, I'm not surprised that she didn't. But I
got to checking the situation out, and she might not have to.
Keep reading and you'll see what I'm talking about, but
first, let us get matters in perspective.

The first thing Nancy did was, throw a party to celebrate
her accomplishments since becoming Speaker following the
2006 election. These are of course too numerous to enumer-
ate in this limited space, so let me cite one of my favorites:
creating an image for her party that resulted in many of
the best Democrats in the House of Representatives either
getting voted out or not liking her anymore. That's a signifi-
cant obstacle, but Nancy is a fighter. Those who are left fall
into two categories: those who put party loyalty (as defined
by Madame Speaker) first, and those who retain a certain
commitment to the people who put them in office--by which
I mean the voters, not the most generous contributors to
their campaigns.

I suspect that there may be enough of the former category
remaining to elect Ms. Pelosi House Minority Leader. (Egad,
how humiliating!) As of now, it appears that, upon the occa-
Ssion of President Obama's next State of the Union speech,
her position behind him on the podium will be occupied by
the (presumptive) new Speaker of the United States House
of Representatives, the Honorable John Boehner (R-Ohio).
This being the case, then whether or not she has enough re-
maining loyal leftists left in her own party to retain her in a
leadership position, she will have to be seated out there in
the audience, along with her remaining 190 fellow-sur-
vivors.

To make matters worse, Ms. Pelosi will now have to make
her weekly round trips to San Francisco on commercial air-
liners! Even in first class there are apt to be Republicans
and perhaps even Tea Party types. What a degrading expe-
rience, and we're not just talking about having to'undergo
weekly full body scans (look for them on the Internet), she
will be required to hob-knob with ordinary, working class
taxpayers! No more private jet, which is reserved for the
House Speaker, who is next in line after the Vice-President
for the nation's highest office. She even had a special one
that could make it across the continent without stopping to
refuel. A real class operation, too,.costing just under a mil-
lion a year, and that includes incidental items like a grand a
week (that's for both ways) to cover food and beverages. No
cheap stuff, of course, except for Jim Beam. Well, you didn't
expect Spam sandwiches and Old Milwaukee, did you?

Now, John Boehner, that country bumpkin from Ohio, obvi-
ously doesn't need a private jet with a long range fuel ca-
pacity for his trips back home, but that pandering plebian
says he is actually going to fly commercial--he doesn't even
care if he has to.associate with Repub-
licans--oh, wait a minute, he is one!
Wouldn't you know it. He'll probably
even fly economy class just to save the
taxpayers a few bucks. He's obviously
got a few things to learn about serving
in Congress!

Don't feel so sad, Nancy, the Speaker is
elected by the full House of Representa-
tives. It's right there in the US Constitu-
tion, Article I, Section 2, paragraph 5.
You might want to read it sometime.
The whole document is only about 22
pages long and it's already in effect (or
at least it's supposed to be), so you don't
have to pass it first before you can fig-
ure out what it means. Who knows,
enough Republicans might vote for you
that you'd get elected House Speaker in-
stead of John Boehner. Just turn on the
charm and it might work.

Lost Dixie tales: Kerosene Charlie and Joe Mows


by Kathy McKinney


SI know when you're in the media, you're not
really supposed to admit this, but, dang, it's
been a really slow week, news-wise. It's been
just a slow week in general, and to be honest,
I don't really have anything substantial to say.
I'm still half-sick with some never-ending cold, and the kids
are doing their second-weekend-of-the-month visitation
thing, so it's been very quiet and dull around Casa McKin-
ney.

I've been entertaining myself with surfing the internet,
looking up interesting bits of history about
Dixie County. You'd be amazed what informa- "The disa
tion you can turn up when you have "mad
google-fu skillz." (Like I do, I admit, oh-so- of men no
humbly.)
the past is
I found an amazing story from May 8, 1926 in do n
the St. Petersburg Times ajout J.P. Easton, a do
realtor from St. Pete who saved "Red" Stuart
from drowning in Governor Hill Lake, not too
far, from my house. The story melodramati- G. K. C
call relates that "Easton swam nearly 100
yards through alligator-infested waters to
reach Stuart, whose fishing boat had become
waterlogged and sank, throwing him and a friend into the
water. Stuart and his companion; O.C. Lowry, had gone fish-
ing in the lake, just after dark, leaving Easton on land." The
story continues, "Dashing through a swamp full of poiso-
nous snakes," Easton saved Stuart, but sadly, Lowry
drowned. I couldn't help but laugh at the paragraph that
said, "The waters of Lake Governor Hill are notorious for
miles around for their great number of man-eating alliga-
tors. Old-time residents say it was a miracle that Easton was
not killed while in the water. He was the first person ever to
enter the waters of the lake voluntarily." I wondered if
"Red" Stuart might be an ancestor of a local Steinhatchee
"Stewart." It seems plausible.

A few clicks led me over to the Library of Congress, where
you can sit on your couch and listen to stories told by the
workers at the old Cross City Aycock and Lindsey Turpen-
tine Camp back in 1939. The website has extensive sources
for school teachers on this period in Dixie County; I'm sur-
prised we never studied it in school at all.

Like a ghost from the past, the voice of a man from North
Carolina named Cull Stacey tells about "Kerosene Charlie,"
a migrant worker who featured in folk tales that swept
through the African-American workers back then. The
recordings from Cross City are the only documented
Kerosene Charlie stories I could find...heck, they may be the
only ones left.


To the Editor:

As the father of a Dixie
County High School stu-
dent, I was surprised to
learn that our county's
school system would not be
observing the Veterans' Day
national holiday. As the fa-
ther of a young sailor who
graduated from DCHS and
who has gone in harm's way
to protect our nation from
terrorists, I was saddened to
learn that her service was
no longer worthy of respect.
As a proud veteran myself,
the stepson of a soldier who
was fired on by the Japan-
ese at Pearl Harbor and the
nephew of six soldiers who
fought against Nazi and
Japanese aggression in
World War II, I was incensed


that their, service, and the
deaths of two of those fine
young uncles did not merit
the appreciation and ac-
knowledgment of our school
board.

The sons and daughters of
Dixie County have fought
valiantly and died in every
war in our nation's history.
Our sons and daughters are
fighting valiantly today to
keep terrorism from our
shores. We should honor
their service and the service
of those who have gone be-
fore. Our school board
should be ashamed of the
lesson that they have taught
our students.

L..YING S .PPORT TO KEEP HER LERDERSHiP PO9


Kerosene Charlie and the Chicken Roost goes like this: ""A
man went on a visit about thirty miles away. When he got
there he asked for a bed. They had two grown daughters,
and they was in one bed, and the man and his wife, they
were in another bed, and there was no other bed. The
woman said 'I will make you a pallet.' The man said -- 'I nev-
er had a pallet before.' So he was put on a pallet on the floor,
and away in the night wet was hitting' him in the face. He
says -- 'The house is leakin' and they's something' wet a-hittin'
me in the face.' The other man says -- 'You fool! Don't you
know you are sleeping under a chicken roost?"

Mr. Stacey sang to the WPA men who were.making the
recordings some of the songs that he sang
advantage while he worked the turpentine. The recording
crackles and pops, but his voice is clear and
t knowing yoi can hear him sing "I'm goin ta Georgy ta
Work in the turpmtine/When I got in Georgy I
That they begin to fret/The Boss Man tole me I was in
know the debt/Goin ta Georgy ta work in the turpmtine."
knw e (This is how the WPA guy transcribed if, I
nranf ii "'didn't change his spelling.)
tnvpi-I


Chesterton


The best music, that I found, though, was
recorded by a quartet that called themselves
"The Dixie Harmony Four." The group was L.G.
Arnold, Doc Choice, S.T. Tatum, and Ire Smith.


Their "Poor Stranger Blues" was so good I admit I ripped it
and saved it in my iTunes, along with some of the other
ones, like "Sally went to Mobile" and "Just a Jitterbug." I'm
surprised somebody hasn't put all these old songs onto a CD,
since they're probably in the public domain after all these
years. It'd be really great.to find a photo of the quartet, if it
exists. Surely somebody's grandma has one in her photo al-
bum or in'a family bible somewhere? Mr. Griffin apparently
spent three months at the Dixie County prison camp for ow-
ing the lumber company fifty dollars, back when just being
broke could land you in Dixie doing hard labor under an
overseer's whip. The Harmony Four told the WPA man.that
they played*in "outlaw" jook joints in Perry and in Suwan-
nee County

James Byrd, who was 30 at the time, told the WPA men
about "Joe Mows," a sort of good luck charm thatwas sold
throughout the turpentine camps. "A Joe Mow is usually
sumpum another fixed up in a bag. You keep it in your right
pocket, and rub it often," he said. Some of them were made
with corncobs, or three eight-penny nails and new paper
bags, or lodestones from Atlanta or New Orleans. A good Joe
Mow was supposed to "keep witches away" if you slept with
it under your pijlow. Your Joe Mow wouldn't work if some-
body had a toad in their pocket or threw salt on you, though.

catch up on a little forgotten Dixie history


To the Editor:
.We as a nation have just let the
US Government know we do
not like the way business is
done in this country. The na-
tion is tired of officials who
think they can do anything at
any time.

I remember when I was a child
you looked up to elected offi-
cials. You always knew they
could be counted on, the
thought of them looking you
in the eye and telling you a lie,
never entered your mind. No
more can we depend on our
representative to do the right
think for the sake of it being
right or because that is why
they were elected.

I have lived in Dixie County
for 12 years now, so you know I
am not one of the "good ole
boys." My last name is not
known to be from a family that
cleared the land 100 years ago.
But I expect to be represented
by my elected officials.

When I moved in Carol Es-
tates, I was led to believe the
road in the area would be
paved shortly. That was 12
years ago and they are still not
paved. I really could under-
stand the road not being paved
if it was only a money prob-
lem. I could understand if the
taxes in the area does not sup-
port the work to be done.
What I can't understand is the
12 miles of roads that was
completely paved going from
Horseshoe Beach to Shired Is-
land. No one lives on this road,
the only thing out there is Os-
teen's hunting camp. (By the
way I am not a member.) No
other family or business is on
that road. I can not under-
stand how our elected officials
allowed this to happen. I espe-
cially can't understand how
my Commissioner allowed it
to happen. I am guilty of not
getting involved with the way
things are handled in the
county.

Well, this is my promise, I will
be involved in the future. I will
attend every County Commis-
sioner meeting. In the past few
years a half dozen elected offi-
cials have been criminally
prosecuted or have been sent
to jail. We need to wake up in
this nation, get involved, at all
levels.

How can we expect the govern-
ment to work for us, when we
can't count on your local rep-
resentatives. Many older peo-


ple with breathing problems
live on these roads. It is a dis-
grace. We need to ask our-
selves why the same people
are getting elected or why the
same contractors are getting
the county contracts. The
country has to believe in the
elected officials again: We
have to start at the local level.
Thank you,
Tom Ezzell, Old Town

Mr Ezzell: It's not'myjob to de-
fend the County Commission,
but as someone who goes to every
meeting, I'm going to take a shot
at it. First off I'm allfor citizens
getting involved. You should go
to the meetings and watch how
things are run. It's an eye-open-
er The current Commission has
really made an effort to do
things the "right" way over the
last few years.

When a Commissioner demands
that county contracts be placed
for bids instead of "awarded" to
friend or family member, he is
looking out for you. If you are
concerned that the same contrac-
tors are getting jobs, it's likely
they are the most competitive
bidders, which saves your tax
money, and mine. This Board
has been very diligent about the
bidding process...but'interested
citizens, like you, need to show
up and watch them like hawks
so that doesn't change.

Secondly, there's a priority list
somewhere of roads that need to
be paved, and when the grant
funds are available, the next
road down the. list is paved. The
Shired Road was grant-funded
and although it's true not a lot
of people live down there, the
road to the County Park and
boat ramp is one of the most
heavily-travelled tourist destina-
tions in Dixie County. It's a
drawing point. It brings boaters
and their lovely, green,money
into the county. The road was
severely pot-holed and getting
dangerous. There's no point in
the County pouring hundreds of
thousands of your tax dollars
improving boat ramps and
parks to bring in tourists if Joe
Tourist can't get his car down
the road. Paving it was the right
thing to do for everybody.

Dusty limerock roads are just a
part of lifefor we hardy folk
who want to live out in the coun-
try, like hauling our garbage off
and not having DSL. The Coun-
ty doesn't owe anybody a paved
road, just like it doesn't owe us
high speed internet. It's part of
the trade-off most of us happily
put up with to live in one of the
finest places on Earth.-ed

Trai/ riaers

by Bonnie Wilson

Today is a beautiful day for
a trail ride. The morning is
a cool crisp sunny day with
blue sky's forever on the
horizon. I am anxious to
saddle up Coby and take a
ride. I walk out to the barn
and see my little dark eyed
munchkin eagerly waiting
for me.

I tell Coby today's ride will
just be the two of us as we
do not have a club ride to-
day and he seems to under-
stand. Once he is saddled
we head out on my back
property to get in a much
needed ride.

How great it is for both of
us to be out today I do love
this time of year with all
the fall colors around. As
the autumn leaves crunch
beneath Coby's feet, my
mind goes to the western
movies that I loved as a kid.
Oh Roy, Dale, Hoppy, and
Gene; if you could only see
me now! Yes you guys (and
you too Dale) would be
amazed at the kid who sat
as close to the TV as Mom
would allow and watched
faithfully every Saturday
morning's western shows
with Dad in great anticipa-
tion. I could easily slip into
the TV and be a part of that
western show every Satur-
day morning as I rode with
only the best. Most of the
Hollywood cowboys like
Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, or
The Lone Ranger had their
own written code, one that
youngsters could learn and
follow. I guess you could
say my hero's have always
been cowboys.

As Coby and I rbund the
back half of our property, I
wish I had remembered to
bring my small clippers to
cut some hanging vines

that refuse to die back as
fall has descended upon us.
Coby is patient and he gen-
tly glides thru the heavy
overhanging vine as I duck
low into the saddle with my
head close to his. A carpet
of pine needles makes a
good road to travel on but
my mind goes out west
thinking of the dust and
rough trails that cowboys
traveled upon. Climbing
rocky hills chasing bad
guys. That had to have been
a rough life. I must say my
life is much better. Just be-
ing here today riding my
Coby is exhilarating. I often
talk to my horse as I ride
and I think that horses un-
derstand your mood and
your heartfelt desires. It al-
ways worked in the movies
with Gene and Roy Now I'm
not saying Coby is as smart
as those western stars of
long ago like Trigger was
but he is smart enough for
me. He always finds the
cookies I hide for him on
our trail rides. He can just
about put his head in my
lap asking for a horse cook-
ie while I'm riding him.
Now that's pretty flexible
and he must be a mind
reader because he knows
I'm going to give him a
cookie too!

It's a terrific day in the
neighborhood and I'm feel-
ing 10 feet tall and bullet
proof. My trail ride today
just keeps getting better as
Coby and I lope for a while.
I enjoy our Florida weather
and I'm actually glad I'm
not in Montana's snow cov-
ered valley's chasing bad
guys! I'd much rather be
here riding Coby and enjoy-
ing this beautiful sunny
day If you like trail rides
you can contact the Levy
County Horse Club at

immortal words of Roy and
Dale "happy trails to you ".


suitable bay bottom areas --
is an important resource
management tool for main-
taining and enhancing pro-
ductive oyster habitat.
Shell plantings provide an
excellent base upon which
free-swimming oyster lar-
vae can attach and grow.

"Florida has maintained an
effective shell-planting pro-
gram since the early 1900s,"
Florida Agriculture Comn--
missioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "Since the pro-
gram began, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture
and Consumer Services has
collected and planted more
than 10 million bushels of
shucked oyster shells. This
practice mitigates resource
losses and contributes di-
rect economic benefit to
Florida's oyster fishery"

Florida's top three oyster-
producing counties are
Franklin, Levy, and Wakul-
la. Along Florida's Gulf
Coast, oysters are still har-
vested in the same way they
have been for over a centu-
ry: from small boats by
fishermen using large, long-
handled tongs to scoop them
up from their beds in the
shallow water. Hand-tong-
ing for oysters is backbreak-
ing work, but it's much
more sustainable than other
harvest methods, such as
dredging, which heavily
damages oyster beds.

From BUCKET LIST pg 1

"These not-to-be-missed Flori-
da greenways and trails offer a
safe, healthy, affordable and fun
recreational experience," said
DEP Office of Greenways and
Trails Director Jena Brooks.
"The trails bucket list.allows
Florida residents and visitors to
take a step away from the ordi-
nary and a step into a unique
and relaxing reprieve with na-
ture."

Whether trotting down a trail
on horseback, hiking and biking
over hills, going for a jog in
fresh air, fishing in shimmering
waters, enjoying a picnic or sim-
ply taking a stroll, Florida's
greenways and trails have some-
thing for everyone. Greenways
and trails provide a gateway to
communities and help drive the
economic engine that bolsters
the state's economy while pro-
moting outdoor recreation, uni-
ty and environmental steward-
ship.

The following 10 state-managed
and designated Florida trails of-
fer a bucket full of unforgettable
memories:

1. Marjorie Harris Carr Cross
Florida Greenway Crossing
central Florida from the Gulf of
Mexico to the St. Johns River,
this 110-mile corridor offers a
variety of trails and recreation
areas. Home to the Florida
Horse Park, one of the top
equestrian destinations in the
country, the Cross Florida
Greenway offers an easily acces-
sible and extraordinary opportu-
nity to explore Florida's wild
beauty on horseback. Off-road
biking enthusiasts can enjoy
what the International Moun-
tain Biking Association desig-
nated as an "Epic Ride" on the
Greenway's Santos trail net-
work. Hikers can appreciate the
gateway the Cross Florida
.Greenway offers to the Florida
Trail, one of only eight congres-
sionally designated National
Scenic Trails in the United
States.

2. Florida Keys Overseas Her-
itage Trail The Florida Keys
Overseas Heritage Trail is a de-
veloping, paved, multi-use.trail
that allows visitors to intimately
experience the colorful Keys
communities and take in views
of shimmering Gulf and ocean
waters. The scenic corridor, ex-
tending from Key Largo to Key
West, connects the islands to
create an alternative transporta-
tion route and recreational path-
way for hiking, running, bicy-
cling, in-line skating, sightsee-
ing, fishing and kayaking. Twen-
ty-three historic Flagler Rail-
road bridges form a central com-
ponent of this multi-use trail
which now features approxi-
mately 70 paved miles in seg-
ments along its 106-mile corri-
dor.

3. Loxahatchee River Pad-
dling Trail The swift and twist-
ing Loxahatchee River is worthy
of its status as Florida's first
National Wild and Scenic River.
Trapper Nelson's cabin is a
point of interest near the trail's
terminus in Jonathan Dickinson
State Park near Stuart. The cof-
fee-colored stream meanders
through an unspoiled subtropi-
cal river swamp where bald cy-
press, pond apple, orchids, and
ferns line the shores. The 8.5-
mile paddling trail makes for an
ideal day-long adventure for in-
termediate or experienced pad-
dlers.

4. Nature Coast State Trail
- Adventure awaits visitors on
this history-rich trail. Providing
an excellent opportunity to ride
off the beaten path, this 32-mile
trail consists of two primary
alignments built along former
rail lines that meet at Wilcox
Junction. A historic train trestle
carries the trail across the
Suwannee River near Old Town.
Trail users can cool off in 72-de-
gree water in nearby Fanning
Springs State Park or watch for
more wildlife at Andrews
Wildlife Management Area.

5. Tallahassee-St. Marks His-
toric Railroad State Trail The
State's first rail-trail begins in
Florida's capital city, running
for 16 miles through part of the
Apalachicola National Forest to
reach the coastal community of
St. Marks. Trail users can enjoy
fresh Florida seafood and fish-
ing in the city of St. Marks and
learn about the history of the
area at the San Marcos de
Apalache Historic State Park.

6. Wekiva River/Rock Springs
Run Paddling Trail Beginning
just north of Kelly Park in
Apopka, Rock Springs Run
winds its way swiftly down-
stream for several miles to join
the spring run flowing out of
Wekiwa Springs State Park.
Traveling through sand pine
scrub, pine flatwoods, ham-
mocks and swamps, paddlers
can see a variety of wildlife, in-
cluding river otters. Numerous
islands, tributaries and lagoons
provide opportunities for side
trips and camping.

7. Suwannee River Wilder-
ness Trail The 170-mile .
Suwannee Wilderness Trail pro-
vides a kaleidoscope of wilder-
ness and historical opportuni-
ties. Visitors can travel outward
from the river to recreational
hubs, trails, parks, museums,
cultural sites and other nature
and heritage attractions in adja-
cent cities, towns and rural
landscapes throughout north
Florida's Suwannee River Valley.
The river boasts more than 70
fresh water springs.

8. Withlacoochee State Trail -
Running from Citrus Springs in
Citrus County to Trilby in Pasco
County, this trail is presently the
longest paved rail-trail in Flori-
da. The 46-mile trail corridor
runs through small towns,
ranches, the Withlacoochee
State Forest and close to the
Withlacoochee River. Springtime
riders will enjoy an abundance
of beautiful wildflowers. The
trail will eventually join other
trails in the region, becoming
part of the Central Florida Loop.
The trail's annual bike ride the
first Sunday of October and at-
tracts 1,000-1,500 cyclists of all
ages and skill level, making it
one of the largest one-day bike
rides in the Southeast.

9. Blackwater Heritage State
Trail Hikers, cyclists and
equestrians who visit the state's
westernmost rail-trail, originat-
ing in the quaint historic town
of Milton, can explore the beau-
tiful countryside of Florida's
panhandle with a trail that
crosses several creeks and fea-
tures an array of native wild-
flowers. Among swamps, tower-
ing pine trees.and pastureland,
this paved trail provides a
serene tour through rural Flori-
da. At its northern terminus,
this 8-mile paved trail joins the
1.5-mile Military Heritage Trail
which is managed by the U.S.
Navy

10. Lake Okeechobee Scenic
Trail This paved and off-road
trail, located atop the Herbert
Hoover Dike, circles Lake Okee-
chobee, the second largest fresh-
water lake in the United States.
The trail takes users through
agricultural communities while
offering endless fishing and
wildlife viewing opportunities,
including herons, egrets and
various wintering waterfowl.
For nearly 20 years this trail has
been the site of a week-long 110-
mile hike that takes place over
Thanksgiving week and is host-
ed by the Florida Trail Associa-
tion.

The Greenway is Florida's
longest green corridor stretch-
ing 110 miles from the St. Johns
River near Palatka to the Gulf
of Mexico near Inglis. Of the
eight state trails, six are rail-
trails, which are railroad corri-
dors converted to recreational
trails for hiking, biking, skat-
ing, equestrian activities and al-
ternative transportation. For

da's trails, visit FloridaGreen-

FWC announces Manatee Decal Art
Contest for high school students

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) invites high school art
students across the state to
participate in a contest to
create a piece of manatee art-
work that will be used on the
2011-2012 manatee decal.

Students in grades 9-
12 in Florida should coordi-
nate with their school's art
teacher to submit the art-
work, because each school
may submit no more than
five entries. Home-schooled
students also are eligible to
enter the contest. Contest de-
tails and forms are available
online at MyFWC.com/Mana-
tee.

Decals depicting man-
atees are available at any
Florida county tax collector's
office by donating $5 or more
to the Save the Manatee
Trust Fund.'Money from the
sale of these decals supports
manatee-protection efforts,
such as rehabilitation, res-,
cue, research, enforcement
and public education. Vehicle
owners can support mana-
tees by including their dona-
tion when they register their
vehicle or vessel.

November is Manatee
Awareness Month in Florida.
Manatees become more visi-
ble in the rivers and springs
this month as they move
from the estuaries and bays
seeking warmer waters. As a
result, boating speed zones
changed in many coastal
counties on Nov. 15, and the
FWC advises boaters to be on
the lookout for the endan-


gered Florida manatee.

Manatee Decal Art Contest
Requirements:

All entries must be the
sole, original work of the
artist.

Student artists must attend
a Florida public, private or
home school for high school,
grades 9-12.

Art teachers may submit
no more than five entries per
school. Home-school parents
may submit one student en-
try per home-school group.

The designs should be in
full color, using acrylic,
gouache, oil, silkscreen,
woodcut and/or digital art.
The design may be realistic
or abstract, as long as the im-
age depicts a recognizable
manatee.

Designs must be formatted
to an 11-inch by 8.5-inch hori-
zontal format. The winning
image will be cropped for an
oval or circular border.

Artwork should be affixed
to a backboard and covered
loosely with a protective cov-
ering.

Entries must be postmarked
on or before Jan. 28, 2011.
Failure to follow any of the
requirements will disqualify
entries from being consid-
ered for the contest. FWC
artists and biologists will
judge.the entries in February.
The winning design will be
used to create a final decal
for distribution through
county tax collectors' offices
around the state.

Gun Show Update

Saturday, November 6
dawned crisp and clear for
the Dixie Rotary Fall Festi-
val. Flea market and craft
vendors shivered in the ear-
ly morning light and brisk
wind as they set up their
booths for the Giant Flea
Market. It wasn't long be-
fore the sun was up, and a
steady stream of
customers were
browsing
through the var-
ious booths find-
ing treasures
and deals.

Inside the Trail
Riders Club,
gun dealers
were ready with
their merchan- "
dise. Hunters,
straight from
the woods from
their first morn-
ing of the 2010 hunting sea-
son, rambled in to check out
what the dealers had laid
out.

Meanwhile, participants in
the car show and parade be-
gan to assemble. The 10:00
parade of corvettes, special-
ty vehicles and commercial
vehicles promoting their
businesses were lead
through town with the
sounds of sirens announc-
ing their arrival.

The fun began with a buffet
of green chili cheeseburg-

open fire and over hot char-

brated "Kitty Litter cake".
The evening rocked to the
sounds of 50's
and 60's mu-
sic.

The hot dogs
and burgers
were roasted
ovef hot char-
coals by our
own "Top
Chef", Jimmy
Jones of Chiefland. Every-
one pronounced the hot
dogs to be the best they had
ever eaten. The evening was
capped with an old fash-

contest. All who participat-
ed proclaimed that it was
harder than it sounded but
still good fun.

The Belles are now looking
forward to their upcoming
visit to Point of View for a
glass painting class in No-
vember. Plans for a Christ-
mas gala are also being
formed.

I made the best chicken and s-oluod Mt4LLet tL.
rice the other day and was told
it was column worthy So I am


going to share it with you.

.soiped oup chio l ze

fap d MRio

2 tb. butter
1 package fresh mushrooms,
cleaned and sliced
2 cups cooked, shredded chick-
en
5 cups chicken broth or 5 cups
water with 5 chicken bouillon
cubes
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2. cups Jasmine rice (try the Jas-
mine rice, I promise it's worth
it)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot saut6 the mush-
rooms in the butter until done.
Add the chicken, broth and
soups. Mix until smooth then.
add the Jasmine rice. Bring to a
boil the reduce the heat to low,
cover and cook for 15 minutes.
This makes a huge pot, so if
you just want 1 meal out of it
just cut everything in half and
only use one of the cream
soups.

I do believe this is the best
chicken and rice dish I have
ever had and the critics here at
the house agreed.

Last week I put a printed a cou-
ple of smoked mullet dip
recipes. I was given another
variation and used the last of
the mullet to try this one out. It
really showcases the flavor of
the smoked mullet so you may
want to try this one.
As is with many of my recipes I
can't give you exact measure-
ments. Just keep adding stuff
until you get the consistency
you like.


Flaked, de-boned smoked mullet
about 2 cups
Ritz type crackers
Mayo
Salt and pepper
Smoked paprika about 1 tbs.

Put the smoked mullet into a
food processor and pulse a few
times. Then crush some of the
crackers in your hand just to
break them up a little and place
into the mullet. Keep doing this
until you have maybe half a
sleeve of the crackers. Just eye-
ball it. Then add maybe % cup
of mayo and pulse. Keep adding
the mayo until it becomes a dip
consistency. Add smoked papri-
ka and salt and pepper. Pulse
then chill. If you want more of
the smoky taste add more papri-
ka.

If you don't have the smoked
paprika you can substitute reg-
ular paprika with a little liquid
smoke.


T-P


I have always read on the back
of rice labels to rinse your rice
before cooking but I never took
the time to do it. I started doing
it a few months ago and can tell
a big difference. Rinsing the
rice removes the extra starch
from the rice so your rice won't
stick together in one big clump.
Just put the rice in a bowl and
run water over it then drain.
Repeat until the water is almost
clear. It only takes a little time
and is worth it.

Thank you for your kind e-
mails and comments. Keep the
recipes and tips coming. Just-e-

STRAIGHT TALK
By Dixie District School
Superintendent Mark
Rains


The holiday season is approach-
ing, and once again I would like
to thank you for giving me the
opportunity to work with the
young people of our communi-
ty. I enjoy working to improve
the educational opportunities
for our children.

I would like to thank parents,
staff and the community for
your support of our children. I
just completed my second year -
as Superintendent and I contin-
ue to believe that in order to be
the best Superintendent possi-
ble, I need constant feedback
and welcome your input on im'
proving our school system. We
have developed a superinten-
dent's evaluation, which is
available on our website at
http://www.dixie.kl2.fl.us/. We
also have a Bright Ideas section
that will allow you to submit
any new idea or comment on
current issues in our schools.
Both of these forms may be
submitted online.

I would like to encourage all
students, staff and parents to
work extremely hard these next
few months in preparation for
the state mandated FCAT test
and End of Course Exams.
With all of the holiday festivi-
ties and the activities going on
in our community and schools,
it is easy to become distracted
from our main goal, which is
academic progress.

Senate Bill 4 is designed to
change the statewide assess-
ment program as we know it.
The state is moving from the
traditional FCAT assessment to
the new FCAT 2.0 in grades 3-10
in Reading and grades 3-9 in
Math. In addition to the change
in FCAT is the introduction of
End-of-Course exams (EOCs).
Beginning with the 2011-2012
school year, students must pass
the EOC's to receive course
credit. All EOC's are developed
at the state level.

On November 2, the voters of
Florida did not pass the revi-
sions to the Class Size Reduc-
tion Amendment which means
each school district in Florida
will have to adhere to the strict
class size limit that was passed
in 2002. However, I would like
to thank the voters of Dixie
County for approving the refer-
endum regarding continuation
for two years of the 0:25 mil
levy for critical needs of the
school district. We are grateful


to continue receiving this rev-
enue during such a tough eco- "
nomic time in our county and
schools.

On November 11, we celebrated
Veteran's Day. Programs were
held at Old Town Elementary
School, Anderson Elementary
School, and Ruth Rains Middle
School. The Dixie County High
School Band performed at these
events, as well'as the parade
and community ceremony I
would like to thank our veter-
* ans who participated in these
events at our schools. It is very
important to educate our chil-
dren about the sacrifices veter-
ans made for our country It is
because of the countless sacri-
fices that our children have'the
opportunity to achieve success
in the classroom, and turn their
dreams into reality.

Dixie District Schools received
the E2T2 federal grant, which is
$750,000 to be used for technolo-
gy in middle and high school
math and science classrooms.
Technology equipment has
been ordered and is beginning
to arrive in our schools. We are
confident that this added tech-
nology will benefit our middle
and high school students.

Title I School Improvement dis-
trict after-school classes for stu-
dents will begin Wednesday,
January 5th. This year we will
have twenty-three, two hour
sessions on'Monday and
Wednesday's during the months
of January, February and
March. It will end on Wednes-
day, April 6th. Limited trans-
portation will be available. Stu-
dents will work in small groups
on reading and/or math with
highly qualified teachers.
Snacks will be provided for
each tutoring session by the dis-
trict food service program. This
program is for students in
third, fourth and fifth grade
scoring in the bottom quartile.
If funds are available, second
. grade will also be permitted to
attend the after-school sessions.
Title I is working hard to pro-
vide programs that help all stu-
dents succeed to the best of
their ability Our goal is for
both elementary schools to
make Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP) this year.

For current Dixie District
Schools information, visit our
website at
http://www.dixie.kl2.fl.us. We
welcome your suggestions in
making this a user friendly
website for students, parents,
and the community.

Dixie District Schools

Church News

Grace. Grace is what God
may be free to do, and in-
deed what He does, accord-
ingly, for the lost after
Christ has died on behalf of
them. Grace was the subject
of Sunday morning service.
Ephesians 2: 8-9, "For by
grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not
of yourselves, it is the gift of
God, not of works, lest any-
one should boast." The
grace of God is the source of
salvation faith is the chan-
nel, not the cause. We can
not do anything to earn our
salvation. You can be the
best worker in the church
or say I'm a good person, I
stay out of trouble or I'm al-
ways kind to other people.
Well all these things are
good traits but they will not
get you into heaven. You
have to except Jesus Christ
as your lord and savior and
be saved by grace and
through faith. But first you
have to realize that you are
lost without God in your life
and that you can not do any-
thing without Him.

Pastor Richardson shared a
story with us about a house-
hold pet that recently past
away, "Jasmine the cat".
The family was heartbroken
to lose their feline family
member. Animals do play a
very important role in a
family. They offer comfort
when you're sad and happi-
ness when they play. They
are God's creatures to be
loved and cared for. Pet's

can fill a big place in your

to the family for the lose of
their beloved pet.

Many were out this morning
due to illness. Whether it's
the flu or something more
serious our church family
needs God's healing touch.
God knows every name and
every need so please help us
lift them all up in prayer.
Thanksgiving is approach-
ing us quickly and for some
in our community it may
not be as bountiful as ours
may be. If you have the

in need this holiday please
do so. And if you do know

CALVARY

TEMPLE

ASSEMBLY

Many of God's people have
been earnestly praying that
somehow the Lord would
take us to another level in *
our faith, a deeper experi-
ence with a much greater
intimacy with the Father
that exceeds the typical
Sunday morning religious
experience.

God has heard our cries but
His response has not neces-
sarily been as expected. In-
stead of hearing the words,
"Come & Enter" we are be-
ing taken to a place that in


the Bible is called Gethse-
mane, the place of crushing.
In order "to move up -ad-
vance in the Kingdom, etc"
there is something that we
must do first. I would like to
encourage you to listen to a
series of messages that we
are presently teaching titled
"Gethsemane."

You can go to our website
www.calvarytemple.us.
Even though we are wonder-
fully saved by the grace of
God we discover there is a
price to pay in order to
move into a deeper level in
our (walk with Christ. Better
yet, we would like to invite
you to join us for a few ser-
vices at Calvary. Sunday @ .

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up."
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,.
Pascagoula, Mississippi


When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how vas an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help.with
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And
they worked with all kinds of: people here from fishermen and
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
our families.

Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
you're wondering what you can do, well the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
