Cross City, Old Town, Fan-
ning Springs, and Chiefland

Good news for next year:



Slightly lower power bills

Average customer should save $7.56 a month


The Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) has ap-
proved Progress Energy
Florida's request to lower ,
customers' bills in 2011. The
changes requested by the
company will result in an
annual savings of mo1e than
$90 for residential customers
using 1,000 kilowatt-hours
(kWh) per month. A bill for
a residential customer using
1,000 kWh will be $119.34, be-
ginning with January 2011
billing, compared to $126.90
currently.

The six percent reduction
resulted from Progress En-
ergy's annual filings project-
ing costs for fuel and pur-
chased power, environmen-
tal projects, conservation
programs and new nuclear
generation. Based on the
PSC's decisions, these
changes will save a residen-
tial household $7.56 per
month on a 1,000 kWh bill
compared to current bills.
Commercial and industrial
customers will also see de-
creases of up to 6 percent.

"Our efforts to control costs
through effective fuel man-


agement and efficient opera-
tions are resulting in sav-
ings for our customers,"
said Vincent Dolan, presi-
dent and CEO of Progress
Energy Florida. "We know
every penny counts as many
of our customers continue
to struggle with the linger-
ing recession. Our more
than 4,000 Florida employ-
ees are focused on keeping
electricity safe, reliable, en-
vironmentally sound and as
affordable as possible for the
1.6 million households and
businesses that depend on
us."

SThe cost of fuel and pur-
chased power is down due to
cost management strategies
and lower commodity prices
for coal and natural gas, the
company's two largest fuel.
sources.

Investments in upgraded en-
vironmental controls at
Progress Energy's two
largest coal-fired units,
Crystal River 4 and 5, com-
pleted in the summer, now
allow the company to use
lower-cost coal while reduc-
ing the average annual emis-


sions from the plant by over
80 percent (mercury reduced
by 80 percent, NOx reduced
by approximately 93 percent
and SO2 by approximately
97 percent). In addition, the
decision to postpone major
construction activities on
the proposed Levy County
nuclear project until after
the federal licensing is com-
plete has further lowered
near-term nuclear costs for
customers by more than 20
percent.

The base rate portion of the
customer bill will remain
stable through 2012 follow-
ing a June agreement
Progress'Energy pursued
with consumer advocate
groups, the Florida Attor-
ney General and the Office
of Public Council.

The PSC decision on the nu-
clear charge was made on
.Oct.26. The PSC hearings
and votes on the environ-
mental and energy conser-
vation charges took place
Nov. 1. The lowered fuel
charge was finalized on Nov.
30.

Sarah should have listened to me

I'd like to congratulate Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, for
winning third place on "Dancing With The Stars," and
Sarah for supporting her in this endeavor. Liberals nation-
wide were badly bent out of shape over that turn of events.
They couldn't put Bristol down for being an unwed mother,
because they consider that to be "cool," and besides, it
would be "passing judgment," and we all know that's some-
thing that liberals just don't do. (Well, don't we?) What's
more, they couldn't claim that she won due to the fact that
she's Sarah Palin's daughter, because only knuckle- drag-
ging Neanderthals are supposed to like Sarah Palin. Good
grief, that girl (Bristol) actually drives a pickup truck! She
ought to be in a square dance contest, not a network TV
show! Alas, sometimes, it's tough being a liberal.

As for Sarah Palin herself, I must take this occasion to
scold her, certainly not concerning her daughter's success
as a celebrity dancer, but for failing to follow up on a strate-
gy I suggested in a column published in July of last year.
As a result, she probably blew her party's chances of secur-
ing an additional seat in the United States Senate, while do-
ing herself no favors politically by pursuing the course of
action she chose.

By resigning as Governor of Alaska in the summer of 2009;
Mrs. Palin could have rationalized this move as an opportu-
nity to prepare herself for a run for the Senate this year.
Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, was up for re-election, but
she was hardly a friend-of Sarah Palin's. Sarah beat Lisa's
father in the GOP primary in 2006 and went on to be elected
governor. And this year, Sarah endorsed Murkowski's Re-
publican opponent in the primary, which he won, and in the
election, which he lost to Murkowski, who won as a write-in
candidate after losing the primary.

Please don't ask me how anyone can win a statewide elec-
tion as a write-in candidate. Even Charlie Crist wasn't will-
ing to take that big a chance, and he still lost. I understand
the ballot count was extremely close and hinged on things
like the correct spelling of hames (all right, Murkowski is-
n't all that easy to spell if you're not Polish), but the fact re-
mains that Murkowski had incumbency, name recognition,
and certainly some loyalty from the Republicans who had
supported her in the primary, all of which adds up to a con-
siderable advantage.

If Sarah Palin had entered the Republican primary herself,
there's every reason to believe that she would have won by
a margin sufficient to have discouraged Murkowski from
her write-in campaign and ensure that she (Palin) would
come away with an easy win in the general election. As it
stands, Murkowski will return to Washington officially un-
committed to either party, and she's just liberal enough to
throw in her lot with the Democrats, who still hold the ma-
jority in the Senate. That would give her more status than if
she'd been re-elected as a Republican--at least until the next
election.

Sarah talks like she's game for seeking the presidency in
2012. She told Barbara Walters she thought she could beat
Obama, but right now she doesn't have much more experi-
ence in government than Obama had when he was elected
President two years ago, and the American people won't be
wanting more of that in 2012. If she wants to go on being a
quasi-political celebrity, writing books, giving lectures, do-
ing TV shows and such, that's fine. But her decision to re-
sign as Alaska's governor, followed by deciding not to seek
a Senate seat this year, will leave her seriously short on ex-
perience in government for someone seeking the presiden-

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


The government "decided" that these
websites might to doing or even just
linking to something that might be
illegal (or might not), and using its
police power, confiscated the person-
al property and businesses of Ameri-
can citizens with no notice. If you
try to go to one of the seized do-
mains, like www.torrent-finder.com,
all you get is a notice that the web-
site has been seized by the Depart-
ment of Justice. The owner of the
website told a news site that he re-
ceived no notice, and has been
charged with no crime. He's just out
of business, because Obama says so.
Another website, RapGodFathercom,
was seized not because there was
any illegal activity going on, but be-
cause some of its 150,000 members


The government spots a website it doesn't like. Maybe it's
somebody like me, who says something in a blog that Uncle
Sam doesn't like. Maybe it's somebody telling you how to
cure yourself with herbs or vitamins, angering a big drug
company. The next day, a domain that I have purchased With
my own money, and built with my own labor, is the property
of the government and all my data is gone, with no chance
of getting it back. I can't even post a notice defending my-
self or my business on my website. I can't get my email. Peo-
ple can't email me. My job, my livelihood...just gone. My

had posted comments that just linked to one of the other
seized websites. The business was confiscated because of
the actions of a few' customers, not the owners of the site.

Now, were the websites targeted doing something illegal?
Well, maybe. Probably, even. Some of them seemed to be sell-
ing fake designer purses, or helping people download illegal
music. But that's not the point, is it? The point is that the
government took it upon itself to seize the private property
of a private person--the person was assumed guilty--with no
right or chance at self-defense. Their constitutional right to
face their accuser, to defend themselves, to be secure from
unreasonable search and seizure, to be assumed innocent un-
til proven guilty in a court of law was thrown out the win-
dow. So, explain to me how we're different from China now.
Try. Go ahead, I'll wait. (La la la. Yeah, that's what I

Pay Freeze Locks in
Historically High Gov't Wages

By Bill Wilson

On the surface, Barack Oba-
ma's announced two-year
freeze of federal civilian pay
may sound like a reasonable
overture to congressional Re-
publicans and the American
people who want unsustain-
able government spending to
be reined in, But, just below
the surface is the reality that
the "freeze" is a token, mean-
ingless move that will do noth-
ing to cut spending.

Take the supposed cost savings
of the proposal. According to
the AP, "The freeze is expected
to save more than $5 billion in
savings over two years, $28 bil-
lion over five years and more
than $60 billion over 10 years,
White House officials said."
One might read that and come
to the conclusion that this
much money was actually be-
ing cut out of the budget. It
will not. These are projected
increases in spending that
would merely be delayed.

As noted by U.S. News & World
Report Editor-in-Chief Mor-
timer Zuckerman, "In 2008, the
average wage for 1.9 million
federal civilian workers was
more than $79,000". That
amounts to over $150 billion
every year in the budget, just
for wages. Public sector pay
has never been higher.

Zuckerman notes the tremen-
dous disparity between public
sector pay and the 108 million
private sector workers, who
only make $50,000 on average.
So, all a "freeze" of public sec-
tor pay would do is lock in this
historically high disparity be-
tween public and private work-
ers.

But that part of the story is ap-
parently not registering with
Obama. Obama is portraying
his proposal as a cut. "The
hard truth is that getting this
deficit under control is going
to require some broad sacri-
fice, and that sacrifice must be
shared by the employees of the
federal government," Obama
said in his announcement of
the federal pay freeze.

Sacrifice. That means some-
body is giving something up.
But in this case, that somebody
- public sector workers -
would only be giving up pay in-
3 creases, and only temporarily
at that. Is that really a sacri-
fice?

There are obvious alternatives
to Obama's approach if he is


sincere about slashing the $1.3
trillion deficit, to say nothing
of reducing the $13.7 trillion
national debt. How about cut-
ting public sector pay and
slashing the overall workforce?
What about paring back oner-
ous health and pension benefit
plans? By announcing a pay
"freeze," Obama is staking out
very particular territory, one
that precludes any possibility
for cuts in these areas.

In several respects this is a
preemptive move on Obama's
part, attempting to run to the
political right on fiscal issues
as a more conservative Con-
gress prepares to take power in
January. To pull it off, howev-
er, Obama needs public sector
unions to decry the move. And
ever dutiful, that's exactly
what the unions are doing,
even if their objections are
sincere.

"This proposal to freeze feder-
al pay is a superficial, pan-
icked reaction to the deficit
commission report," said
AFGE National President John
Gage, as reported by the Huff-
ington Post. "This pay freeze
amounts to nothing more than
political public relations. This
is no time for scapegoating."
AFL-CIO President Richard
Trumka accused Obama of
"undermining" the jobs of
public sector workers.

The unions obviously fear that
by ceding pay increases for the
public sector that actual cuts
become more likely. They are
right. Reports the Huffington
Post, "the question [unions
and liberal economists are]
asking in private is, what ex-
actly did the White House get
in return for the chip it gave
away?"

What indeed. Obama thinks he
has a guard on his sword with
which to parry the American
people's demands to cut spend-
ing. It gives him.something to
talk about whenever the issue
of the budget comes up. But
that is probably not good
enough. The Obama proposal
will do nothing to actually cut
spending.

Which is exactly what congres-
sional Republicans ought to be
saying. Except House Republi-
cans support the pay freeze. To
be fair, they have also called
for a hiring freeze. But to be ef-
fective, they need to go much,
much further and put propos-
als on the table that actually
slash a government spending
in a meaningful way.

Bill Wilson is the President of Ameri-
cans for Limited Government.


internet is, essentially, being silenced.

The government claims it is doing this to
"protect copyrights." Uh huh. Did you
know, that Facebook got a trademark mo-
nopoly over the word "face" last week? So,
let's say you're running a site that sells
makeup, Prettyface.com. Or you've got a
site honoring the military called "About
Face," or something. You could wake up
one morning to find your business seized
by the Department of Homeland security
for using a word that belongs to Facebook.
You're gone. You're toast. And now every-
body thinks you're a criminal.


There's new legislation coming down the
lutely set its face." pike called COICA -- the Combating Online
n Olmstead v. U.S., Infringement and Counterfeits Act--and
7 US at 485. (1928) .it's even worse than the DMCA law they're
using to shut down the internet now. This
thing needs to be stopped. Sure, the big
Hollywood companies are all behind it, and I don't blame
them for wanting to protect their movies and music. But we
have a Constitution. We're supposed to be a nation of laws.
And it's not worth throwing all of that away just so that Dis-
ney can get the royalty fees from "The Little Mermaid." It's
not. If these websites are illegal, then let them be criminally
charged and tried. Then, if they're convicted, the govern-
ment can seize their property But not before..The Founding
Fathers were very clear on this. There's no room for "inter-
pretation." You either follow it or you don't. And if they
don't, then you have to question if we really are a free coun-
try, with a Constitutional government anymore. "(No man .
shall)... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due
process of law; nor shall private property be taken for pub-
lic use, without just compensation." Please call or email our
new Senator Rubio and Rep. Bembry, and demand they fol-
low the law of the land, not shred it for big business.

for the free speech rights of
public school students," said
John W Whitehead, presi-
dent of The Rutherford In-
stitute. "I hope this sends a
message to school districts
across the country that stu-
dents should not be treated
as second-class citizens."

Renee Griffith was a co-vale-
dictorian of her 2008 senior
class at Butte High School in
Montana. By virtue of her
scholastic achievements, Re-
nee was selected to speak at
the graduation ceremony on
May 30, 2008, along with sev-
eral other students. Al-
though the valedictorians
were asked to prepare their
own remarks, Renee and an-
other student, Ethan,
planned to deliver their
speeches together, alternate-
ly mentioning thingsthey
had learned in school. Al-


though school officials al-
legedly did not object to
Ethan's testimonial about
humanity's inherent "power
for change," they did object
to Renee's heartfelt state-
ment about how she learned
to persevere and not fear by
standing up for her religious
convictions: "I learned to
persevere these past four
years, even through failure
Sor discouragement, when I
had to stand for my convic-
tions. I can say that my re-
grets are few and far be-
tween. I didn't let fear keep
me from sharing
Christ and His
ie graduation joy with those
ee was around me. I
lace the learned to im-
Sand "God" part hope, to en-
with the fol- courage people
s: "sharing to treat each day
"lived with a as a gift. I
pose derived learned not to be

ds of her ing school, but
s fofidden for being com-
s forbidden at mitted to my -
altogether at faith and morals
ceremony. and being some-
one who lived
with a purpose


from God with a passionate
love for Him."

Just prior to the graduation
ceremony, Renee was or-
dered to replace the words
"Christ" and "God" in her
speech with the following
phrases: "sharing my faith"
and "lived with a purpose, a
purpose derived from my
faith and based on a love of
mankind." When Renee in-
sisted on her right to use the
words of her choice, she was
forbidden from speaking al-
together at the graduation
ceremony.

In affirming Renee's right to
free speech, the Montana
Supreme Court found it was
"unreasonable to conclude
that Griffith's brief mention
of her personal religious
views would materially and
substantially disrupt the
graduation ceremony[.]" The
Court rejected the District's
claim that the censorship
was justified by the need to
avoid an appearance of en-
dorsing religion because "no
objectively reasonable ob-
server could perceive that
Griffith's religious refer-
ences bore the imprimatur
of the School District."

Nfaers

by Bonnie Wilson

This week's trail ride took
Levy County Horse Club
members to San Felasco in
Alachua off Hwy 441. A
terrific place to ride with
lots of diversity to keep
your horse really in tune.

Now at 7,000 acres
with the newly acquired
Fox Pond site, the San Fe-
lasco Hammock Preserve
State Park is one of the
finest examples of the cli-
max mesic hammocks re-
maining in Florida. The
park s located to the north-
west of Gainesville, in
north Florida's Alachua
County. The limestone out-
crops and extreme changes
hi elevation provide condi-
tions for at least 18 biologi-
cal communities within the
hammock, including areas
of sandhill, hydric ham-
mock, upland pine, and
swamp. Thanks to the re-
gion's karst topography,
sinkholes, steephead
springs, ponds, and small
lakes dot the landscape.
Blues Creek, Turkey Creek,
and Cellon Creek all enter
San Felasco from outside
the park boundary and flow
through the park, finally
dropping into swallows,
which drain back into the
aquifer.

The morning ride
was'Florida trail riding at
it's very best. The sun was
warm and inviting. Neither
too hot nor too cold. The
trails were intriguing with
twists and turns and log
crossings and thickly wood-
ed hills. Coby was in rare
form and I think lie liked it
as much-as I. This was his
second visit to San Felasco
and there was so much for
him to look at. A real ad-
venturesome trail and I
would love for those of you
who missed it to join in on
the next one. You would
not be disappointed with
the beauty that San Felasco
holds before your very eyes.

We started out to
check the creek as many of
our members had not rid-
den on these trails and

those who had like Renna
and Steve had not been in
many years. Coby and I led
the pack and Dave kept the
riders at the back from get-
ting lost. I guess most of
the time we trail riders fall
into two categories. One
group riding gaited horses
and the other group non-
gaited horses. Coby is most
definitely gaited (which I
love). Dave's horse Sporty
is also gaited but he is hap-
py to be where ever Dave
puts him, first or last. Coby
prefers to be a leader and
guess what? I like it!

My friends and I en-
countered a few bicycle rid-
ers as our paths cross on
our adventuresome trails,
however we have discov-
ered our horses don't mind
them as long as they can
see them coming. Although
our paths do cross on occa-
sion, they are definitely on
separate paths. One of our
favorite trails is the blue
trail. It winds up through
some of the beautiful and
hilly tree lined trails that
are exceptionally wonderful
to climb. I also love the ride
down to the creek and
through the woods. It is tru-
ly astonishing and inspir-
ing. The crossing of the
creek is great for the horses
to grab a drink of water
and splash and play for a
moment.

We had a wonderful day un-
der incredibly blue skies
and lots of sun. The tem-
perature was just about per-
fect for a great seven mile
trip. I was able to keep on
the right trail following the
blue markers. As you know
I can get lost at the drop of
a hat, and many of my
friends have followed me
into a bush instead of a
trail. I cannot understand
how the trails suddenly
stops with no apparent rea-
sbn that I can see. Could it
be that I missed a marker?
Naaa...not me!

Fortunately for me
today I was in rare form
and I kept everyone on the
right path, well just about.
There was this one little
moment that I actually
crossed to the bicycle path
BUT I saw my mistake and
corrected it with a right
turn. I hope you'll keep my
secret. All in all it was a
great day! If you enjoy trail
riding like we do, come on
out and join us. Check us
out with any questions and
email us at levy2@fla-
horse.com Until next time,
happy trails to you!

Man Threatens Levy Deputy with Gun

On November 27, 2010 Corpo-
ral Todd Houchin responded to
the Discount Food Mart locat-
ed at 9931 NE SR-24 to meet
with a complainant
from a previous call.
While in the parking
lot Cpl Houchin was ap-
proached by a white
male that was later
identified as Jimmie
Saunders from Archer.
Saunders wanted to
know why Cpl Houchin
was at the store and
who called law enforcement on
him. Cpl Houchin explained
that he was at the store in ref-
erence to another call but he
would gladly help him if he
needed assistance. Saunders
behavior got more bizarre and
he started speaking in Spanish


and French. Due to his behav-
ior Cpl Houchin asked him for
identification and Saunders
produced a Florida driver's li-
cense. Saunders had no war-
rants for his arrest and Cpl
Houchin gave him
his driver license
Back and told him
he was free to
leave. Cpl Houch-
in worked the orig-
inal call but no-
ticed that Saun-
ders remained in
the parking lot.

Upon completing the assigned
call Cpl Houchin was walking
back to his patrol car when
Saunders stepped in his path
and produced a Florida con-
cealed firearm permit. Cpl
Houchin advised Saunders
that he did not need to see his
permit and went to walk away
when Saunders said that
Houchin was yanking his
chain so he was going to yank
his chain. Saunders then
reached in his rear pants
pocket and started pulling
something out. Cpl Houchin
immediately recognized that
Sdunders had a pistol and
grabbed his arm and placed
Saunders in custody. Cpl
Houchin arrested Saunders
for aggravated assault & im-
proper exhibition of a
firearm. Saunders had a fully
loaded .380 pistol in his back
pocket which was placed into
evidence.

OTE School's September
Employee'of the Month is
Mrs. DeAnna Roberts. This
is Mrs. Robert's 6th year at
OTES. She has taught 5th,
1st, and 2nd grades. Her fa-
vorite parts about teaching
are the bonds she forms
with her students. This is


ap-
parent through all the extra
hours spent creating inter-
esting classroom lessons
and many arts and crafts ac-
tivities. Earlier this year,
Mrs. Roberts read a story
about going camping. She
decided to take her students


SII I/



















SLI

on a "Classroom" camping
trip! She had a tent, scary
stories, and even made
Smores! Mrs. Roberts is
married to Wesley Roberts
and has two children Austin
and Macy Roberts that both
attend OTES.

OTE School's October Em-
ployee of the Month is Mrs.
Brandy Hunt. This is Mrs.
Hunt's 7th year at OTES.


She has only taught 3rd-5th
grade Exceptional Educa-
tion. Her favorite part
about teaching is the ppsi-
tive influence she can have
on her students. She loves
when her students come
back and visit because they
want to not because they
have too. Mrs. Hunt was
thrown into an endeavor
this year called Failure Free
Reading. She was required
to go through training and
learn this NEW reading pro-
gram from the ground up!
She then had to bring it
back into the classroom and
implement the program
with very little support.
When our school was visit-
ed by the Failure Free Rep-
resentatives they were more
than impressed with her
knowledge of the program
and felt like she had the best
grasp of the program of any
teacher they had visited to
that point. Mrs. Hunt is
married to Gary Hunt and
has a beautiful 6 month old
baby, Drew.

December 13th our students
will put on a demonstration
at Old Town Elementary
School. Our students enjoy
performing in these demon-
strations to show everyone
all the things they are learn-
ing in karate class. The
spectators leave impressed
with the skills our students
have accomplished.'


If you have a student at Old
Town Elementary School,
please come to the demon-
stration and watch with
your child.


Coming up in 2011 our com-
petitors are continuing to
work hard for next year's
tournament season. We
have enrolled many new
team members and are anx-
ious to watch them demon-
strate their new skills.

Some things our karate stu-
dents must do, outside of
the karate school, is to
maintain good grades in
school and to be good role
models on their.own time.

We will continue to high-
light our Karate Student of
the Week in the weekly pa-
per. We hope you all enjoy
reading about our students
who are working to excel.

We are planning some addi-
tional fund raisers to help
our competitors continue to
enter the tournaments. So,
if you are approached by a
karate student, please help
them work towards their
goal to cover their entry
fees.

If you would like to see
some of the things our stu-
dents are learning, you may
come by the karate school
Monday, Tuesday, or Thurs-
day from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
If you are interested in join-
ing, please come by these
same hours and speak with
Mr. Taylor or one of our
other staff members.

First group of Florida's 53rd
Infantry arrives in U.S.
More than 2,500 Guardsmen
expected to arrive home from
Kuwait by Christmas
By Master Sgt. Thomas Kielbasa
Florida National Guard Public Af-
fairs

The first group of Soldiers
from the Florida National
Guard's largest overseas de-
ployment arrived in the U.S.
this morning, marking the
beginning of the end for a
nearly year-long mission in
Southwest Asia.

As temperatures dipped into
the 30s more than 150 Sol-
diers from the 53rd
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team (IBCT) landed by
plane at Hunter Army Air-
field near Savannah, Ga.,
and were taken to nearby
Fort Stewart for a "welcome
home ceremony." The Sol-
diers were the first group to
return home from the 53rd
Infantry Brigade Combat
Team's mission supporting
Operations Iraqi Freedom.
and New Dawn.

This first group was com-
posed of Inactive Ready Re-
serve Soldiers, Guardsmen
heading to various military
schools and members of the
53rd IBCT serving as an "ad-
vance party" for the remain-
der of the nearly 2,500 Sol-
diers still in Kuwait The
rest of the 53rd are sched-
uled to return in groups be-
ginning in early December,
and all members of the 53rd
are expected in the U.S. be-
fore Christmas. After a brief
demobilization period at
Fort Stewart, the groups of
Soldiers will be released
home to Florida.

"It's great to be home," said
Staff Sgt. Mark Miner with
2nd Battalion, 124th
Infantry Regiment, shortly
after he stepped off the air-
plane into the frosty
Georgia morning air. "I
think the Brigade did a
tremendous job, and we had
a lot of support from the cit-
izens of Florida."

Miner, who is also a com-
missioner from St. Johns
County in Northeast Flori-
da, noted that the return
also marked his one-year
wedding anniversary and he
was looking forward to see-
ing his wife Cheryl later in
the morning. A few hours
later the couple was reunit-
ed on the parade field at
Fort Stewart.


"It's lucky that he's getting
back today," Cheryl Miner
said, noting their
anniversary. "(The deploy-
ment) actually went by pret-
ty fast."

Staff Sgt. Joseph Rappel, a
resident of Titusville, Fla.,
who also served with the
2nd Battalion, 124th In-
fantry Regiment, said it felt
"wonderful" to be back in
the U.S. before Christmas.

"I look forward to seeing my
wife and kids, and I know
they're looking forward to
seeing me," he said.

The 53rd IBCT which is
headquartered in Pinellas
Park, Fla. is made up of
Soldiers from around Flori-
da, and includes large con-
tingents based in Miami,
Orlando, Panama City and
SLakeland. The Soldiers left
Florida in January 2010,
and conducted pre-mobiliza-
tion training at Fort Hood,
Texas, before departing
for Southwest Asia in early
_March 2010. One of the most
high-profile missions
the unit performed during
the deployment was escort-
ing convoys of U.S. forces
leaving Iraq as part of the
scheduled drawdown of
troops and equipment in the
country.

"You have answered your
nation's call," Adjutant Gen-
eral of Florida Maj. Gen.
Emmett Titshaw said to the
recently returned Soldiers
during a ceremony at
Fort Stewart. "On behalf of
Governor Charlie Crist, we
thank you for your
dedication and your com-
mitment and your service to
your nation."

The mobilization and de-
ployment of the 53rd was
historic in that it was the
largest single-unit mobiliza-
tion for the Florida National
Guard since World
War H.

Two Soldiers died during
the deployment: Spc. Marc
Clayton Whisenant, an
Individual Ready Reservist
attached to 1st Battalion,
124th Infantry Regiment,
died Sept. 24 in Kuwait
when the military vehicle
he was riding in rolled over;
1st Sgt. Kenny Fike of 2nd
Battalion, 116th Field Ar-
tillery Regiment, was evacu-
ated from Kuwait after be-
ing diagnosed with cancer
and died in Auburdale, Fla.,
on Sept. 24.

rides, train ride, games, face painting and lots of fun for the
entire family when Saturday, Dec. 11th rolls around. Christ-
mas music will fill the air, Yellow Rubber Ducks get

All-penguin quilt is


really cool


This year is fast coming to
an end. Springhouse Quil-
ters have all enjoyed a very
successful year of quilting.
Most of all, members have
been trying to finish things
started before 2010 and be-
fore new projects ideas
'bring on the temptation of
starting a new quilting pro-
ject. Pat Hodges, President
for 2010, has agreed to con-
tinue to lead our group
again in 2011 so there will
be more new projects after
the new year starts.

Norma Birman, our pro-
gram chairlady for 2010,
has helped lead Springhouse
quilters into new ideas and
quilting projects and will
continue to do so in 2011.
Springhouse members enjoy
a monthly workshop class
each month of some special
technique and/or project.

DECEMBER

2010

This past weekend I looked
out onto our pasture just as
the sun was rising to see a
glistening white blanket of
frost as far as my eyes took
me. My grandpa used to re-
fer scenes like that as "pic-
ture postcards". Frost and
temperatures in the 20's are
common for December for
sure, so be on your guard to
take some precautions. Here
are a few tips for those of us
who have cold sensitive
plants and citrus trees: if
you have only a few smaller
trees to protect, hook up a
string of mini-Christmas
lights (plugged in and work-
ing of course!) If you are
thinking of covering them,
the'best material to use is
the high tech thermal frost
blanket. This type of blan-
ket allows the tree to
breathe while it maintains
the temperature under the
blanket between 8-10 de-
grees warmer.

Cotton sheets work o.k., but
serve mostly as a wind
block. The worst is plastic
sheeting or tarps that sweat
and have a tendency to
cause more harm than good,
especially if they touch the
leaves of the plant. Plants
that are potted and movable
should, be placed indoors or
at least protected from the
wind chill. However, don't
keep them inside and away
from the natural sunlight
for extended periods of time
and always remember to
keep them moist.


The big time citrus growers
use inconvenient smudge
pots to prevent frost from
killing their crops, plus the
added trick of spraying the
entire tree just before the
freeze. This keeps the tree
fully hydrated from the
roots upward and gives the
tree a little more chance of
survival. The last tip on
freeze protection is to NOT
fertilize during the winter
months; concentrate on sup-
plying the proper amounts
of water rather than food.

Since some people have al-
ready asked me for sugges-
tions about live Christmas
trees, here goes! The com-
mon northern varieties of
firs and spruces will not live
long in the Florida heat. Lo-
cally grown Leyland Cy-
press, Arizona Cypress and
our native Red Cedar are all
good choices. Oddly enough,
you can buy one of these
live trees for less money
than the cut shipped in
northern varieties. The big
plus is buying a live tree is
that you can add these trees
to your landscape after
Christmas for years of en-
joyment, rather than adding
it to the trash heap or dump-
ster.

I would like to take this op-
portunity to thank all of our
readers who have asked gar-
dening questions and to all
who have encouraged me in
this past year in writing
this column. May this
Christmas season be a
blessed one for you and your
family as you share the joy-
ful things in your life with
those around you!
God bless,
Art Wyckoff

I tartedsearching for an easy
inexpensive way to clean my
oven. The loclk on mine is bro-
ken so I haven't been able to use
the self clean option and didn't
want to use harsh cleaners that
might cause damage. I found
this website www.WebSiteRe-
pairGuycom and have been try-
ing his technique for a few days
and it seems to be working. The
following is by Ed Abbott,
www.WebSiteRepairGuy.com

Eight easy Steps

to a C-ea. ovev%
I always like to find an easy way
to do things. As I go through
life, I find it's important to take
advantage of the little shortcuts
that save wear and tear on me.
Here's an easy way to clean an
oven that I've found that works.
The hardest part of cleaning an
oven is getting all that baked-on
black stuff off the inside walls
of the oven. It's called carbon.
Here's 8 easy steps that I follow
to get the hard-stuck carbon off:
Buy an empty spray bottle and
some baking soda.
You'll find that baking soda is
cheap especially if you buy in
bulk..
Using a funnel, place 3 heaping
teaspoons of baking soda into
the spray bottle.
If the baking soda clogs the fun-
nel, unclog it with water.
Three heaping teaspoons of
baking soda is enough baking
soda for a large spray bottle.
Large baking soda bottles are
approximately 1 quart or 1 liter.
Be sure to buy an empty spray
bottle. Bottles that previously
contained window cleaning so-
lution, or other substances, do
not work very well. That's what
I hear.
One person, who wrote in, got
their empty spray bottle at a
flower shop. Years ago, I got my
empty spray bottle at Costco.
That was over 10 years ago.
Wash the baking soda into the
spray bottle by running water
into the funnel.
Fill the bottle with water. After
the bottle fills, you'll notice
undissolved baking soda that
has settled at the bottom of the
bottle.
Shake the spray bottle so that
all the baking soda dissolves in
the water.
Unless all the baking soda is ful-
ly dissolved, some of it gets left
behind in the bottom of the bot-
tle as a residue.
When the oven is cold, spray the
baking soda and water solution
on to the black stuff. Do this one
or more times a day.


it is important to worn on a cola
oven for two reasons:
Safety You can't burn your
hands if the oven is cold.
Containment. You'll get baking
soda all over the house if you
start with a hot oven. I know.
I've done it.
Starting with a cold oven solves
the problem.
Use your oven as you normally
would. Keep spraying wet bak-
ing soda on to the top and sides
of the interior of the oven be-
tween meals.
Wet baking soda will break up
the carbon sticking to the sides
of the oven. Keep spraying bak-
ing soda on to the black stuff
between meals until it is all
gone.
Don't worry about getting bak-
ing soda in your food. Baking
soda is one of the prime ingre-
dients of many recipes such as
corn bread. It is safe to add it to
your food should you do so inad-
vertently
Using this technique, the black
carbon that was stuck to the
sides of your oven will flow to
the floor of your oven and settle
there as a black carbon powder
that can be wiped away.
Your oven will look like a mess
while this in process. Choose
a good time to do this. At your
convenience, when the oven is
cold, wipe your oven with a
damp cloth.
Eventually, you will have to
wipe down your whole oven
with a damp cloth. The black
carbon and baking soda will
will settle together on the bot-
tom of your oven. Both are easi-
ly removed with a damp cloth.
In theory, you will have to apply
the spray bottle many times but
you should only have to wipe
down your oven once. Try not to
wipe down the oven premature-
ly as this removes the active in-
gredient that makes the whole
thing work -- the baking soda.
Important! Let the baking soda
accumulate so that it can do its
job.
Repeat, repeat, repeat until all
the black carbon is gone.
This technique can be used on
carbon that is baked on to casse-
role dishes as well.



This technique is the thrifty
person's oven cleaner. You'll no-
tice that the main ingredient in
many commercial oven cleaning
products is baking soda (also
known as sodium bicarbonate).
One disadvantage to this ap-
proach is that it takes time for


the baking soda to chemically
react with the carbon. Time and
repeated applications of the
spray bottle solution are your
keys to success.
A clear advantage to this ap-
proach is that it is not very la-
bor intensive. Just keep spray-
ing the carbon stuck to the inte-
rior of the oven until it all flows
to the bottom of the oven. Then
wipe it all out with a damp
cloth.
One more thing to consider: It
takes a lot of baking soda to re-
move a lot of carbon. Be sure to
apply a significant quantity of
baking soda before giving up on
the project. Significant quanti-
ties of wet baking soda and the
passage of time are your keys to
success. Remember! The baking
soda does not react with the car-
bon unless it is wet.
On particularly difficult spots,
you may want to dampen the
baking soda in a bowl and apply
it directly on these spots as a
wet paste. If you do this, keep
the baking soda wet for an ex-
tended period of time by com-
ing back often and spraying it
with your spray bottle.
If the accumulation of carbon
is particularly heavy on the bot-
tom of your oven, you can
sprinkle baking soda on to the
bottom as a dry powder and
then dampen it with your spray
bottle.
Good luck!

tips. Just send them to

From RADIO, pg 1
The one thing you will hear
is more coverage of local
events, ads for local business-
es, public service announce-
ments for qualified organiza-
tions, and hopefully next
year local high school foot-
ball games. WZCC currently
carries UF Gators Sports and
NASCAR Sprint Cup races
which will now be carried on
WLQH too. It is our goal to
become the Tri-Counties lo-
cal, community radio station.
The combined broadcast will
carry the WZCC brand.

Current listeners of either
radio station just need to add
an extra preset button on
their car or truck radio.
Click 940 while in Chiefland
and Levy County and click
1240 when in Cross City and
Dixie County. In between?
Just pick the button with the
best signal!! We also wel-
come our new listeners in
Gilchrist County. To become
the community's local radio
station, we need input from
the community. We welcome
and encourage comments
and suggestions on our pro-
gramming from listeners, po-
tential advertisers, and com-
munity leaders. What do you
want to hear on the WZCC?
What would encourage you to
advertise on WZCC? How
can our radio stations best
serve our communities? You

er, jovial gangsters posing as
pastry chefs, a flaky "feldzig"
chorus girl trying to steal the
stage, a Latin lothario trying to
woo the bride-to-be, an aviatrix,
and of course the drowsy chap-
erone, the show boasts thrills
and surprises that take both the
cast (literally) and the audience
(metaphorically) soaring into
the rafters!
The Drowsy Chaperone is pre-
sented by special arrangements
with Musical Theatre Interna-
tional (music & lyrics by Lisa
Lambert and Greg Morrison
and book by Bob Martin and
Don McKellarson). Original
Broadway production of The
Drowsy Chaperone produced by
Kevin McCullum, Roy Miller,
Bob Boyett, Stephanie McClel-
land, Barbara Freitag and Jill

There is still such a need for
healing in our church and


community; many are suf-
fering from sickness and dis-
ease. God is still in the mir-
acle business, all we have to
do i~s'sk and believe. The
bible says you should rejoice
even in your time of trou-
bles. How many know that
can be hard a lot of times.
It's easy to praise God when
things are going well but
when troubles come it's a lit-
tle harder. God wants us to
praise Him in all things. If
we do this He will heal and
restore us. It is never to late
for God to turn things
around for us. Jesus said in
Hebrews 13:5 "I will never
leave you nor forsake you".

New Prospect

News

New Prospect welcomes Bro.
Gene Coons as our interim
pastor. We are very blessed
to have him come and
preach to us and
share his great knowledge
of the Bible. We welcome
Karen, his wife, back to
Dixie County where she
grew up.. We, at New ,
Prospect, look forward to
Bro. Gene and Karen being
with us as we look for the
man that God wants to be
our pastor.

Bro Gene brought the morn-
ing message from 2nd chap-
ter of Mark. The message
was one that should cause
us to to reckon with our-
selves concerning
our faith. How much faith
do we have-If we could have
the faith the size of a
mustard seed-what great
things we could do for our
Lord. Sunday nights
message came from Job.
What a man of faith. The
scripture tells us of how
God blessed the work of his
hands .Many bad things
happened to Job that would


cause his faith to waiver had
he not been strong and faith-
ful to God..
How committed are we to
God? We have many sick
.ones in our church and
county, lets lift them up in
prayer. Lets lend a ear or a
shoulder. God tells us that
:"others" are more impor-


tant than ourselves.
We at New Prospect invite
you to come and worship
with us. If you are looking
for a church home-our doors
are open to you.
May GOD bless you this
week and if you see some-
one without a smile-Give
them one!


Please study the plan of

December's traditions
include holiday hunting

By Tony Young
There's finally a chill and a
certain festiveness in the air
as most of us try to take time
off from work to enjoy
spending quality time with
family and friends and re-
flect on the passing year.
Children will be out of
school on winter break soon,
and while the holiday season
is upon us, so are several tra-
ditional hunting opportuni-
ties.

The second phase of
waterfowl and coot season
comes in statewide Dec. 11
and runs through Jan. 30. In
addition to the usual hunting
license and permit require-
ments, duck hunters also
n-It 'horna l PInrio dn at+.


When hunting water-
fowl, hunters may use only
non-toxic shotgun shells. In
fact, it's illegal for hunters
even to possess lead shot
when waterfowl hunting.
Only iron (steel), bismuth-tin
and various tungsten-alloys
are permissible.

For something differ-
ent, try woodcock hunting.
Woodcock season runs Dec.
18-Jan. 16. Woodcocks are
excellent game birds because
they hold well for pointing
bird dogs and provide a chal-
lenging shot when flushed.
The daily bag limit is three.

The third phase of
mourning and white-winged
dove season opens Dec. 11
and runs through Jan. 9.
The daily bag limit is 15
birds.

Only two of your six-
bird limit may be pintais,
- redheads or scaup; and three
'may be wood ducks. And
'you may have no more than
four scoters and four mal-
lards (of which only two may
be female) in your bag. All
other species of ducks can be
taken up to the six-bird limit,
except harlequin ducks.

The daily limit on
coots is 15, and there's a five-
bird:limit on mergansers,
only two of which may be
hooded.


N,

Ph


guns must be plugged to a
three-shell capacity (maga-
zine and chamber combined).
Bows also are legal.

Retrievers and bird
dogs can be useful in hunt-
ing migratory game birds.
Artificial decoys, as well as
manual or mouth-operated
bird calls, also are legal and
essential gear for duck
hunters.

You may hunt migra-
tory game birds over an agri-
cultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted by regu-
lar agricultural methods..


However, don't even think
about "sweetening" the field
by scattering agricultural
products over it or any-
where near it or you could
wind up in serious trouble.
It doesn't matter if you
aren't the one who scattered
the bait. If you knew or
should've known that such
bait was present, you're ac-
countable under federal law.

Some other things you
can't do while hunting mi-
gratory game birds include
using rifles, pistols, cross-
bows, traps, snares, nets,
sinkboxes, swivel guns, punt
guns, battery guns, machine
guns, fish hooks, poisons,
drugs, explosive substances,
live decoys and recorded bird
Calls, sounds or electrially
amplified bird-call imita-
tions. It is also.again t the
law to shoot from a moving
automobile or boat and herd
or drive birds with vehicles
or vessels.

Bobcat and otter himt-
Sing season is Dec. 1 -March
1, and there's no dailybag or
season limit on either'
species.

Like foxes, bobcats
may be chased year-round
with dogs, but possessing
firearms during-the closed
season, between March 2 and
Nov.30, is prohibited. On a
few wildlife management ar-
eas, bobcats and otters may
not be taken, so please con-
sult the specific area
brochure before you hunt.

Whether upland bird
hunting with friends and
family, shooting ducks on the
pond with your favorite lab
or taking that big bobcat as
he,slips up behind an unsus-
pecting fawn, December has
the hunting opportunities .
you're looking for.

"Now Gulf seafood is coming back on the menu, so come on down,
we're open for business."
Bryan Zar
Co-owner, Restaurant des Families
Crown Point, LA


I grew up-bussing tables at this restaurant. Last year, my wife,
Brooke, and.I bought it. We were working hard to build a
business, then the spill hit. BP said they would try to make
things right. But how was an energy company going to help
our restaurant? ...

Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they w6uld tell us to take a number and wait in line:
Instead' they asked us if we could serve food to the workers,
engineers, scientists, and local residents they had hired to
cleanup the spillIt kept us busy round the clock. And we
weren't the only ones. They hired a lot of local businesses and
kept a lot of people working. They have kept businesses up and
down the Gulf open and it's still making a difference.

Open for Business
BP asked us to share our story with you to keep you informed.
Our restaurant's open six days a week. Customers are filling our
restaurant again and we think it's a good time to come down to,
the Gulf Coast. And if we could make just one request, please .
think of us when planning your next vacation. We're still here
and while it's been tough, we are still cooking. And we are just
one of the hundreds of great places ready to welcome you when
you come down. So don't wait. We're looking forward to
seeing you.
