Old Town teen arrested


32 year old man

found dead in

Old Town


On Sunday afternoon the
Sheriff's Office was called to
the death scene of a 32 year
old white male on NE 281
Avenue in Old Town. Ac-
cording to the witness, the
victim went to bed around
11:00pm after having con-
sumed alcohol while taking
his prescription medica-
tions. The witness got up
and went to church Sunday
morning and when he re-
turned, he noticed the vic-
tim had apparently not got-
ten up that morning. When
he went to check on his sta-
tus, he found him lying "
across his bed and deceased.
There were prescription
medications found on the
scene with the victim and
these items were seized to be
forwarded to the Medical
Examiner's Office in
Gainesville.


for burglary, fraud


Christina A. Wright, 18
years of age from Old Town
was arrested on December
5, 2010 on warrants that
stem from several cases be-
ginning in June of this year.
Wright
has been
tied to at
least
three cas-
es involv-
ing Bur-
glary,
Theft,
Forgery
. and
* Cheating'
(by -
fraud).

In one of
the cases, Wright was used a
residence and presented
herself as having permis-
sion from the homeowner to
be there. When the home-
owner was contacted, it was
learned that Wright had not
been given permission to
live or enter the residence.
On another occasion, family


members were heard their
four-wheeler driving off and
when they looked outside,
they observed Wright dri-
ving away on the four-
wheeler.
It is also al-
leged that
Wright was
involved in
the theft
and forgery
of checks
drawn on
the ac-
counts of
one of
these vic-
tims dur-
ing the
course of
these inci-
dents.

Wright is currently being
held in the Dixie County
Jail on the following
charges: FTA Burglary, FTA
Fraud/Cheating, FTA
Forgery, FTA Petit Theft and
FTA Possession of a Con-
trolled Substance.

Commission replaces Suwannee

Water Board members


At Thursday morning's reg-
ular County Commission
meeting, the Commission
voted to replace Russ McAl-
lister and Pete Browner on
the Water and Sewer Board
in Suwannee. McAllister
and Browner apparently
both resigned before the end
of their terms. Chairman
Hatch suggested that the re-
placements should be the
"two highest vote-getters"
from November's election
and Commssioner Hunt sec-
onded. The vote passed and
Ronnie Parr and Busch
Thorpe will take their spots
on the Board a little early.


Phil Bishop of North Flori-
da Professional Services, ap-
peared to report that FWC
funding on at least one of
three applications made
would be funded to rehabili-
tate the Horseshoe Boat
Ramp and Park. He said he
has not yet heard back on
the applications for Jena
and Demory Creek, but that
"I feel confident that they
will eventually get funded. I
think it was just a matter of
not having funding to com-
plete everything on their
list."

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


REIMEMBERIlING IPARIL HARBOR
Sixty-nine years ago this week, the Japanese bombed Pearl
. Harbor, inflicting extensive damage on our Pacific Fleet
and killing more than 2,000 Americans. President Franklin
D. Roosevelt called December 7, 1941, "a day that will live in
infamy," owing mainly to the fact that it was a surprise at-
tack, not preceded by a formal declaration of war.

The Japanese strategy was obvious. Had we known the at-
tack was imminent, the fleet would have been at sea and the
Japanese aircraft carriers that launched the attack might
have been at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean before they
came within striking distance of Hawaii. The United States
immediately declared war on Japan and made the war ef-
fort the top priority on the home front. A little over three
and a half years later, Japan surrendered following the an-
nihilation of Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic bombs.
Dresden and other German cities were also destroyed with
conventional bombs during the war in Europe.

Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who was assigned to
lead the attack on Pearl Harbor, remarked that his nation
had "awakened a sleeping giant." And he was right. Admi-
ral Yamamoto was killed later in the war.

The concept of a formal declaration of war has pretty
much been relegated to the history books, owing to mobi-
lization capability and destructive capacities of today's
weapons. The advantage of a first strike outweighs any rea-
son to defer to tradition, and certainly no country will be is-
suing a formal declaration of war before attacking us. That
concept, as well as adherence to the Geneva accords, has
long been abandoned by any potential adversary. Not that
war ever really was a "gentleman's game," but any pretense
that it was is history And yet, our nation still defers to this
obsolete concept.

After ordering the use of atomic bombs to bring an abrupt
end to World War II, President Harry Truman opted for a
more "cautious" approach in Korea, as became clear when
he fired General Douglas MacArthur for exceeding some
"ground rules" established, apparently to avoid provoking
the enemy. As more than one veteran of that conflict has re-
marked, Korea became "war games with real bullets."

As for Vietnam, President Lyndon Johnson pursued that
war on the absurd notion that we could prevail against an
atheistic, Communist regime that placed no particular val-
ue on human life through a "war of attrition." In other
words, a government with a virtually unlimited supply of
"cannon fodder" was supposed to tire of the carnage before
we did, so there was no point in launching an effort to pum-
mel the enemy into submission, just keep shipping the cas-
kets home until the enemy ran out of "volunteers." And the
liberals who elected LBJ didn't blame him, they blamed our
returning troops. Stupidity on exhibit, but we saw a lot of it
back in the sixties.

Vietnam is the only war this country ever fought that lasted
longer than we've been in the combined Iraq-Afghanistan
effort. Fortunately, our casualties have not even approached
what we experienced in Vietnam, but they're on the in-
crease and the prospects for a satisfactory outcome are not
encouraging. A measure of success was achieved in Iraq,
but Afghanistan looms as a costly road to nowhere, primari-
ly because our troops aren't allowed to do anything that
might offend the locals, who can't seem to decide which
side they're on.

The bottom line is, if you're going to fight a war, go at it to
win, not to establish a stalemate and sign a treaty that your
enemy will violate as soon as he's mustered the resources
to fight another round. This will involve "collateral dam-
age," otherwise known as civilian casualties. Unfortunate,
but war is unfortunate, and the only way to put an end to it'
is to destroy--not placate--the enemy He's never going to
like you, so give up on the PR approach and opt for kicking
butt, or you'll be at it forever.

As General George S. Patton often advised his troops, "Your
job is not to die for your country, it's to make the other SOB
(Patton did not use acronyms in such cases) die for his
country" A simplistic strategy? Perhaps, but it won World
War II. Unfortunately, it hasn't been tried since.

Anyhoo, one thing they do believe that I'm 100% behind is
being prepared and self sufficient. It's some sort of rule that
all LDS families should have sufficient food storage for a
long time. I think that's just smart. With the economy the
way it is, this is seeming smarter to me all the time. If you
read this column regularly, you know that I have what my
sister calls "a little black rain cloud" of pessimism that just
hangs over me all the time. Maybe so, but from what people
say when they stop me on the street or in the gas station, I'm
not the only one out there. So, as a public service to all of
my depressed and glass-half-empty readers, this is what the
doom-and-gloom crowd wants under the tree this year.

No self-sufficient pessimist could fail to appreciate a grain
mill. Whether it's making fresh bread, or just having access
to flour or meal during the inevitable zombie apocalypse,

THE LATEST WIKILE.AK


On Thursday, December 2nd, 2010, the Redcoat Regiment was asked to represent Dixie County at
t.e Governors Inauguration Parade on January 4th, 2011, in Tallahassee,
Even though they know It will mean practices over the Christmas break; Mr. William Garrett and his
students are very excited to represent Dixie County in such a great event, and thanks Dixie County for having the
confidence In them to do It.
However the band was at the end of It's season and is slightly unprepared for such an undertaking,
supplies are needed. a banner to represent the county properly, along with the necessary items to perform in the
cold (something this band has not really had to do). So we are reaching out to you, the citizens of Dixie County
for help.
We understand the timing couldn't be worse, but every $ would be greatly appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at
The Dixie Advocate, Dixie County High School

Sat the Free Christmas Concert at the Ruth.Rains Middle School gym on

December 13th at 6:00pm





Thank You


pleasanthillgrain.com has the best ones I've seen. These
days, you can even have various sorts of wheat berries de-
livered right to your front door in five-gallon buckets. They
say that fresh-ground wheat is so much better than the kind
you can buy at the store. I don't know, but just-in-case the
zombies take over Foodland, a grain mill would make a
great present. They're really pricey, but the doomed can't
put a price on their own survival, can they?

Another great gift for the survivalist-minded is an aquapon-
ics setup. Aquaponics is half aquaculture, half hydroponics.
The do-it-yourself crowd can build a simple setup from food
grade barrels or an old swimming pool and
best food storage a high-powered aquarium filter without
plunking down a lot of cash. For the drill-
i elevators but in impaired, there are full kits available on
cans and bottles the internet from places like afford-
ies of our people, ableaquaponics.com that let you raise your
own fresh tilapia or catfish and veggies for
it is to see cans harvest in the garage or backyard. The wa-
Sbeans under the ter from the fish is piped through the
as of women who plants, which filter the water before it goes
,es y io back into the fish tank. A set of plans I
esponsbiy ito found online said that you can raise 30
their own hands, pounds of tilapia with two food grade 55
gallon barrels. Sure, it takes 9 months, but
Gordon B. Hinckley that just gives we negative types time to sit
around and crochet our tin-foil hats to
block the government mind-control rays.

Well, you might well ask, what about stocking stuffers? How
about ammo for their weapons, a food dehydrator for mak-
ing deer jerky, the ever-popular solar-powered radio, or per-
haps even some surplus MRE's? Five-gallon food-grade buck-
ets with those fancy oxygen absorbers for storing grains and
beans long-term are always popular, and won't set you back
a fortune. Canning jars and lids are winners with the lady
survivalists on your list, too,

I hope I've given you some ideas for the doomsayer on your
Christmas list. Not that buying him any of this stuff will
make him happy, mind you, but he may, like Eeoyore, just be.
a little less depressed on Christmas morning. If nothing
here suits you, just remember the immortal gift advice for
Negative Nellies, given by Burt Ives in.Rudolph the Rednose
Reindeer...... Silver and gold, silver and gold
Everyone wishes for silver and gold
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.

k SPECIAL HRISTMAS REQUEST

FROM THE EDITOR

There's no point in having this giant soap-box to stand on if
you can't use it once in a while to do something for some-
body else.

This Christmas season, we here at the Advocate have found
two families that we would like to help enjoy a better holi-
day If you are looking for some way to give back this year,
and if you can afford to help, we would appreciate your
assistance. All gifts can be dropped off at the Advocate, any
time during normal hours. (Please label the gift Family One
or Family Two so we know who it goes to. These are proud,
hard-working people who are struggling through no fault of
their own and we didn't want to embarass them by putting
their names in the paper.)

FAMILY ONE: A lady who does UPS with us regularly was
in here when we were tossing around the idea of helping
people. She said, "I know somebody!" Her friend is a grand-
mother, living on $300 a month, in a travel trailer in a rela-
tive's back yard. This grandmother is raising her two teen
grandchildren on her own. She was getting some food
stamp help but apparently the kids "aged out" of the sys-
tem and were cut off. The oldest just turned 18 and is a boy.
He has a job, but it doesn't pay much. The younger girl is a
student at DCHS who is trying to get into the military this
year. They receive no other kind of assistance and are do-
ing the best they can with what they have.

Forithe teen girl, they need: Pants & Jeans, size 9-10, (no
low-riders, please), Medium/Large shirts, shoes, size 8 1/2,
bras, size 36D, and Medium/Large jackets.

The boy could use pants or jeans for work, 32-32, medium or
large shirts, a large jacket, and size 11 socks.

FAMILY TWO: This family was doing OK until a few
weeks ago when the mother was laid off from her cashier
job. The father is disabled. Their December bills are paid--
but it took everything they had and now they don't have
any way to get Christmas for their ten year old son. Any
gifts appropriate for a ten year old boy would be welcome.

Thank you for making somebody's Christmas more merry,
Kathy

As we traveled down the
highway to our trailhead to-
day there was a bit of rain
falling, then suddenly lots
of rain. I was beginning to
think today may not have
been a good day to ride.
However as we pulled into
the trailhead it stopped
raining. I thought this was
a "here's your sign" deal
that I was looking for. We
unloaded our boys, and af-
ter a few hellos we headed
out on the trail.

Our ride today was at
Pruitt, which is located in
Dunnellon. It's a great place
to ride. Phil Parent, and
Dave and I were the three
amigos for this adventure.
We three amigos were more
than ready to ride and this
time we actually took the
high road, and left the other
riders to take the low road.
Yeah, right, but keep read-
ing anyway Actually at one
point as we were on the top
hills looking'down at our
friends below as we shouted
gleefully to them only to
find out that they had al-
ready been there and done
that. Imagine that, someone
actually beat Coby to the
top!

Everyone had a magnifi-
cent ride. The thing I really
like about Pruitt is that
they have these extraordi-
nary hills that you can
climb. It's good for your
horses. Coby and rhad an
excellent ride. He was very
willing and trusting of me.
He had not seen these hills
before and yet he did an
amazing job. Through tight
turns that were more like a
jungle than a forest, he
moved obediently with
ease. Palmetto bushes were
plentiful and everywhere
and yet he did not mind.

I do enjoy the different lev-
els of paths to take at
Pruitt. If you prefer you
can ride thru the forest at
the bottom and go all the
way with no hills to climb.
Just the sound of crunch-
ing, fallen leaves buried on

the forest floor. The hilltops
give you more obstacles to
go thru, like fallen logs and
tight trails to maneuver
around and thru and even-
tually down too. AND spi-
der webs to avoid. You
know I hate spiders. In the
forest there are hug ones,
almost as big as your hand.
Phil was our fearless leader
on our hilltop trail. I think
he hates spiders as much as
I do. I did hear him yell a
few times as he knocked
down a few webs that were
inhabited.

Fortunately none of those
creepy crawly things trav-
eled with us; meaning Dave
and Sporty and me and
Coby. Now I cannot say that
is true for poor Phil. I do
believe he had a few travel-
ing companions. Ugh!

We traveled all the way
through our scenic hilltop
plateau and were heading
back down the hill when
the thunder began to roll,
and the clouds became
darker. Oh my! Did you
know the forest gets really
dark with no sunshine
falling gently through the
tall trees? We were in such
a hurry to ride this morn-
ing that I forgot to put our
saddle horn bags on our
horses. Those bags just hap-
pen to contain our rain pon-
chos. Oops, we can't go
back now. It did rain and we
did get just a little wet,
however it did not stop us
from the fun we were hav-
ing. It was incredible. We
had more fun than a barrel
of monkeys; wet monkeys
at that!

Later back at the trailhead
we all gathered together
and had lunch as we dis-
cussed our trail riding ad-
venture. Dave and I had a
wonderful day sharing our
friendships and our com-
mon interest of our great
love of horses with our
friends. It did not rain on
our parade. Well, maybe it
did just a little but it cer-
tainly did not stop us from
a great trail ride.

If you love trail riding, and
good company come on out
and join us. You can contact
us at levy2@flahorse.com.

Until next time, happy
trails!

FWC to add youth turkey
hunts and modify
hog-dog hunts on public
lands



The seven-member Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) di-
rected staff Wednesday to
advertise a package of new
rule proposals to be voted
on at the February 2011
meeting. The proposed rules
could affect hunting on
many of the state's wildlife
management areas (WMA).

Most of the rule proposals
apply to specific WMAs. A
summary of the proposals
is available online as part of
the Dec. 1-2 meeting agenda
at
MyFWC.com/Commission.
Two of the proposed
changes, however, would af-
fect hunting managed areas
on a statewide scale.

The first proposed rule
would establish youth
turkey hunts on 78 FWC-
managed areas, all of which
support adequate turkey
populations, and would cre-
ate a youth turkey quota
permit. Forty-nine of the 78
areas will require a youth
turkey quota permit, and
only those youths who will
be less than 16 years old on
the last day of the youth
turkey hunt can apply for
this opportunity.

The youth turkey hunts
would be two-day, Saturday-
Sunday hunts, which would
occur the weekend prior to
the opening of spring
turkey season on each par-


From CERT, pg 1

The philosophy of this na-
tion wide organization is to
apply their training to give
critical support to their fam-
ily, loved ones, neighbors,
and local emergency volun-
teers until professional
workers arrive.

Our Dixie County chapter
was originally formed in
2004 with 40 members. This
class is now part of a local
group of volunteers that
join 220 other organized
teams in the state of Flori-
da. We are privileged to
have 3 state certified in-
structors from our county:

ticular WMA. If approved
in February, these new
hunts would take effect be-
ginning with the 2012 sea-
son.

These hunts will be avail-
able for youths younger
than 16 years old who are
supervised by and in the
presence of an adult, 18
years of age or older, but
only the youth will be al-
lowed to harvest a turkey

Adult supervisors won't be
required to have licenses or
permits, but they won't be
allowed to participate in the
hunt. They will be allowed
to supervise only However,
any adult supervisor who
has all of the required li-
cense and permits would be
allowed to do the "calling"
and otherwise participate in
the hunt; but only the
youths are allowed to har-
vest a turkey.

The second rule proposal
would remove the one-gun
restriction on all hog quota
hunts using dogs. Current-
ly, these "hog-dog" quota
hunts allow only one hunter
S(permit-holder), one gun,
one assistant and up to
three dogs. An additional
person also can join the
hunting party, if a guest
permit is obtained in that
person's name.

If the Commission approves
the proposed rule at the Feb-
ruary meeting, each partici-
pant will be allowed to hunt
with a gun, beginning with
the 2011-12 hunting season.

proposals can be viewed at

FWC moves toward

requiring hunters to

report deer harvests

next season


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) directed its
staff on Wednesday to adver-
tise new rule proposals re-
quiring all hunters to tag
harvested white-tailed deer
and report the harvest to the
FWC.

However, the commissioners
directed staff to provide a
menu of options regarding
exempt hunters, showing
how those hunters would re-
port their harvest. Exempt
hunters include individuals
65 and older and 16 and un-
der.

Tagging and reporting game
harvests is commonly done
in many states, and FWC
staff reviewed several other
states' harvest-reporting sys-
tems to see what might work
well in Florida.

The FWC, along with its
stakeholders, continues to
craft a system where hunters
would report their harvested
deer, to better track where
and how many deer are har-
vested in Florida.

FWC staff presented a draft
proposal at five public meet-
ings across the state and
gathered input and feedback
through an online poll.


The proposed harvest-report-
ing system would utilize a 24-
hour, seven-days-a-week tele-
phone and Internet system,
and tags to attach to harvest-
ed deer.

Some of the information
hunters would have to report
includes their customer
number, date of harvest,
county, method of take, hunt-
ing with or without dogs,
type of deer (antlered buck,
button buck or doe) and
number of antler points on
bucks. All compiled
statewide harvest data would
be available to the public on-
line and updated daily, but
would not include hunters'
personal information..

"We want to make this sys-
tem as friendly as possible
for Florida's hunters," said
Cory Morea, FWC biologist
and deer management pro-
gram coordinator "We need
the data to give Florida
hunters what many of them
have asked for that is better
management of the state's
deer herd, and at a more lo-
cal level. This will give us
one of the tools to enable us
to do that."

The new rules could be ap-
proved for final adoption at
the February 2011 Commis-
sion meeting and would be-
come effective July 1, 2011,
and apply to the 2011-12 hunt-
ing season.

For more detailed informa-
tion on the proposed harvest-
reporting system, go to

On Thursday, December 2nd, 2010, the Redcoat Regiment was asked to represent Dixie County at
the Governors Inauguration Parade on January 4th, 2011, In Tallahassee.
Even though they know It will mean practices over the Christmas break. Mr. William Garrett and his
students are very excited to represent Dixie County In such a great event, and thanks Dixie County for having the
confidence In them to do It
However the band was at the end of It's season and Is slightly unprepared for such an undertaking,
supplies are needed, a banner to represent the county properly, along with the necessary items to perform in the
cold (something this band has not really had to do). So we are reaching out to you, the citizens of Dixie County
for help.
We understand the timing couldn't be worse, but every $ would be greatly appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at

sit.


Question:
How do I request proof of
my benefit amount?

Answer:
You can use your SSA-1099
form as proof of your in-
come if you receive Social
Security benefits, or you can
use the annual cost-of-living
adjustment notice as verifi-
cation of your current bene-
fits. You also can make an
online request for a Proof of
Income Letter at
https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6
z/BEVE/main.html, or you
may call Social Security's
toll-free number, 1-800-772-
1213. People who are deaf or
hard-of-hearing may call our
toll-free TTY number, 1-800-
325-0778, between 7 a.m. and
7 p.m. on Monday through
Friday.


Question:
I began collecting Social Se-
curity retirement benefits at
age 62, but also continued
working. Now I am full re-
tirement age. Do I need to
report my earnings to Social
Security?


Answer:


No. When you reach full re-
tirement age, you no longer
need to report your earnings
to Social Security You do,
however, need to report earn-
ings for those months in the
calendar year before the
month you reach full retire-
ment age. For example, if
you reach it in May, you
would need to report your
earnings total for the four
earlier months. If you are
under full retirement age
when you start getting your
Social Security payments, $1
in benefits will be deducted
for each $2 you earn above
the annual limit. For 2010
and 2011, that limit is $14,160.
In the calendar year you at-
tain full retirement age, $1 in
benefits will be deducted for
each $3 you earn above a
higher annual limit up to the
month of full retirement age
attainment. For 2010 and
2011, that limit is $37,680.
Learn your full retirement
age by consulting the chart
at
www.socialsecurity.gov/retir
e2/agereduction.htm.

Question:
I am retired and I receive a
monthly withdrawal from ar
IRA. I plan to apply for So-


cial Security benefits. Will
the money from my IRA be
considered earnings that
could reduce my monthly
benefits?

Answer:
No. Non-work income such
as pensions, annuities, in-
vestment income, interest,
capital gains, and other gov-
ernment benefits are not
counted and will not affect
your Social Security bene-
fits. For more information,
we suggest the following pub-
lications: Retirement Bene-
fits (Publication No. 05-10035)
and How Work Affects Your
Benefits (Publication No.05-
10069). You can find both on-
line at
www.s6cialsecurity.gov.

Question:
Are Supplemental Security
Income (SSI) benefits tax-
able?

Answer:
No. SSI payments are not
taxable. You will not receive
an annual form SSA-1099.
You can learn more about
SSI by reading the online
publication,

From COMMISSION, pg 1

Bishop continued, saying
that according to CDBG
rankings, that the Dixie
Road Project should be in
the funding this year. "The
last cycle they funded the
top 14 on the list," and "this
year we're in around 8th, I
think," he said.

Bishop said that he expected
the permit to be issued this
week on Gornto,and the
fence to be put back up by
the contractor at the air-
port.

EMS Director Tim Alexan-
der commended County em-
ployees who helped with the
recent office moves, saying,
"They did a'lot of work and
saved the county a'lot of
money"

County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy said that the purchase
of the "Cheek Property"
in Jena is moving along.
The project is going to be
"totally state funded
through Florida Forever."
An additional 4 acre pur-
chase is being considered to
ease access issues. An ap-
praisal came back with a
value of $16,000 for the 4
acres, "but the owner feel
it's worth $100,000 per acre,"
Alexander said. The audi-
ence chuckled at this. Cas-
'sidy continued, All we need
to do is permittable and it
should be at a reasonable
cost."

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison presented a resolu-
tion required to resurface
the "Continental Loop,"
vouchers to settle the Lan-
der Sunshine Law lawsuit,
and relayed the information
that the two charter schools
in the county who have re-
quested crossing zones need
to place those requests
through the school board.
Ellison requested a special..
meeting to approve tljb .
voucher as a part of the F1.
Medicaid settlement with
William Osteen, and re-
minded Commissioners that
a quorum will be required
at that meeting.

Clerk of Court Dana John-
son reminded Commission-
ers that the second annual
Christmas party needed to
be scheduled. Chairman
Hatch said, "I went last year
and I'm in favor of it my-
Concentrations of manatees
increase as temperatures drop

Recent cold weather means
high numbers of manatees
may be concentrated in
warm-water refuges near
power plants, rivers and
springs throughout the state.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) cautions
boaters'to be on the lookout
for manatees moving into the
Intracoastal Waterway reach
warm-water refuges at power
plants and springs. Boaters
should slow down and strict-
ly obey posted speed restric-
tions in manatee protection
zones.

"When the weather changes,
large numbers of these mam-
mals move in and out of
warm-water refuges and
feeding areas," said Kipp
Frohlich, the FWC's Imper-
iled Species Section leader.
"That's when the greatest
danger from boat strikes oc-


self," and the holiday party
for employees is on.

Bruce Boyette appeared and
asked for a letter of support
from the Commission to
Honor Fowler's Ferry The
request was approved.

New Commissioner Ho-
lifield -said that he had been
"reviewing the vouchers,"
and that he felt that the
landfill costs paid to the
Aucilla facility are too high
and that he felt the County
could find better rates at a
landfill in Georgia.

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison reminded Holifield
that "We're part owners of
the (Aucilla) landfill--I don't
know if you know that--we
just got a $102,000 rebate on
(those fees.)"

'Solid Waste Manager Joe
Ruth added that "We looked
at this several years ago, but
right now, we are in a
locked-in contract unless we
get totally out of there."

Old Town resident "Pizza
Joe" Philipponi appeared
to request some help on an
issue with trash and noise
behind his house at the
school bus loop and the Na-
ture Trail. He said, "I can
solve your garbage problem,
you can just throw it in the
school bus turnaround--
everybody else does.".He
told the Commission that
"tle stench will floor you,"
and that a few days ago he
counted 60 buzzards feeding
on the remains of deer and
hog carcasses thrown out by
hunters. He said, "Those
people have no heart. They
take their hunting dogs out
there and shoot them and
leave them." He said that
County deputies make runs
out there, but there's no way
they can keep up with the
traffic. "The boom boxes,
. he partying, the con-
doms...I know. thiatArugs:are.
:-go~tig on out there. There's''
more traffic there some
nights than McDonalds."

Commissioner Hunt told Pizza
Joe that the grader was out
there on Thursday, and that
"We've been working on
that--it's been an ongoing
thing. We were trying to do
a good deed. We were trying
to open it for the buses, but
we opened a bigger can of
worms."
curs. This pattern will repeat
itself as winter cold fronts
come and go."

The FWC and its law enforce-
ment partners will be in-
creasing patrols and strictly
enforcing manatee-protec-
tion-zone speed limits to aid
the animals during this peri-
od when they are most vul-
nerable to vessel strikes.

To avoid striking manatees,
vessel operators should wear
polarized sunglasses to help
them spot the creatures in
the water; and watch for the
large, tell-tale circular slicks
on the surface of the water
(manatee footprints) that in-
dicate the presence of mana-
tees.

Florida's manatees, visit

atee, please call the FWC's

Capital City Bank raises runds

for United Christian Services


t





-i


For two weeks in October the Cross City office of Capital City
Bank accepted donations on behalf of the United Christian
Services to help with food baskets for the holidays. Baked
goods and a winning prize of 10 bags of deer corn resulted in
$420.00 being raised. The drawing was held on Oct. 15th, 2010.
Jeff Mosley did the honor of drawing the winning ticket,
with John Polk coming out the winner of the 10 bags of corn.
Capital City Bank would like to say "Thank you" to the fol-
lowing people for donating the bags of corn. Creekside Farm

MILITrrAiRY

MOMENTS

WITH TARNK


DAY OF

INFAMY

On the morn-
ing of Decem-
ber 7, 1941, the
naval aviation
forces of Impe-
rial Japan at-
tacked the US
Pacific Naval
fleet in Pearl
Harboron.ithe..
island o' :
Hawaii. The at-
tack was in-
tended as a pre-
ventive tactic to keep the US
Fleet from influencing the
Swar that Japan was waging
in Southeast Asia against
Great Britain,

The surprise attack was car-
ried out in two waves, using
a total of 353 planes
launched from six aircraft
carriers. The attack was de-
signed and carried out by
Imperial Admiral Yamamo-
to, who stated at its comple-
tion "We have awakened a
sleeping giant and have in-
stilled in them a terrible re-
solve".

Four battleships were sunk
arid four others damaged
(two were repaired and re-
turned to duty) along with 3


cruisers, 3 destroyers, an
antiaircraft training ship,
and a minelayer, that were
either sank or damaged.

The two battleships that
were damaged beyond re-
pair were the USS Okla-
homa and the USS Arizona.
2,402 personnel were killed
and another 1282 wounded.
Of those killed, 1117 were
aboard the
.USS Ari-
zona.
Japan loses
were mini-
mal. 29
planes, 5
S midget sub-
marines,
and 65
killed or
wounded.

The main
targets of the attack were
the US's 3 aircraft carriers
(Enterprise, Lexington,
Saratoga) who, fortunately
were not in the harbor at
the time of the attacks.

The next day the US de-
clared war on Japan, and
signaled their entrance into
WWII.

Upon hearing of the attack,
President Franklin Roo-
sevelt proclaimed the date
as a date which will live in
infamy".

Let us remember the ones
that lost their lives that day
and honor those that sur-
vived the terrible ordeal.

Clean Historic

Suwannee

Way down upon the lower
Suwannee, there's nearly
5,000 pounds less debris.
thanks to the efforts of
nearly 90 volunteers that
gathered along the banks
last Saturday. The sun shone
on the river and tempera-
ture was perfect. Otters and
gators swimming along the
grasses were a big plus.

The last 20 miles of the his-
toric river cut through the.
53,000 acre Lower Suwannee
National Wildlife Refuge.
Manager John Kasbohm
committed three of the
Refuge boats and staff to op-
erate them for the 4-hour
clean-up sponsored locally
by the Friends of the Lower
Suwannee NWR. From
Camp Azalea through the
Refuge and down to the Gulf
friends and neighbors gave-
back to the river that brings
so much to our communi-
ties.

The Great Suwannee River
Clean-up continued over
four months from its source,
the Okefenokee Swamp in
South Georgia to the mouth
of the river. After prepara-
tion and coordination by di-


rector of non-profit Current
Problems, Fritzi Olson says,
"It's taken many hours of
planning, hundreds of miles
covered, and so many self-
less volunteers to make this
the success we'll all benefit
from. I'm very pleased!"

Nearly 30 members of the
University of Florida's Wet-
lands Club woke early and
drove over to Camp Azalea
and Fowler's Bluff to help
locals reclaim the pristine
quality of the Suwannee.
Chiefland High School stu-
dent and former Youth Con-
servation Corps member
Vance Renaud assisted from
his boat at the mouth of the
river near Suwannee town.

"We had a wonderful time
on the clean up! Not many
people ever slosh thru the
mud and tangles on the
shore; they just pass by in
their boats," reported
Robert Leffew of Fowler's
Bluff. He brought several
friends who hadn't seen the
Suwannee beforehand to
help with the clean-up.

For those of us who live and
play along the River, we
thank everyone who gath-
ered on its banks in order to
retain the health and beauty
of the magnificent water-
way In the end, we all bene-
fit with healthier fisheries,
water quality, and wildlife.


The Red Hats of Steinhatchee had their November luncheon
at Momma's Restaurant in Perry. Our Hostess was Darlene
Fuqua, who provided us with wonderful trays of
hor dervs. Momma's provided us with beautifully decorated
tables (and privacy in the back!) plus a wonderful red cake.
The meal was delicious, as everyone chose their own dish.
Laughter, fun, and serious.thoughts were had by all. Much
shopping ensued in Perry after the meal.

December's meeting will be special, with our Queen Momma,
Mickey Nyberg, surprising us with the location, etc. Watch
for news of the event in January.

Steinhatchee Christmas Parade


ToidWTbtout a plea on Face-
Book begging for ideas for my
column. It was past due and I
had no idea what to write. I re-
ceived some great ideas and
Mrs. Virginia Fales was kind
enough to send me on of her fa-
vorite meals. I have always been
afraid of cooking salmon be-
cause the one time I tried it was
so dry. This recipe makes me
want to give it another whirl.

Mrs. Virgiia Fates salmowv
a"d Asparagus

She wrote adceSalmon, aspara-
gus and baked'potatoes. I buy
Salmon from Samir-Ms, frozen
small portions. Marinate in Ital-
ian dressing for 10-15 minutes. I
use McCormick seasoning red
and green pepper with garlic
salt. I cook it on top of the stove
in a small amount of olive in a
cast iron skillet on medium/low
temperature. About 4-5 minutes
on each side. I put a little olive
oil on the asparagus and the
same seasoning then put into
the oven on 375 degrees for ap-.
proximately 20-30 minutes. Just
nuke the potato and the combo
is just great, one of my favorite
meals!!Ai

(metaphorically) soaring into
the rafters!

Helena D. Hoffman


Helena D: Hoffman, 91 of Fanning Springs, passed away
Nov. 30, 2010 at Haven Hospice of the Tri Counties in
Chiefland. She was a loving wife with enormous quali-
ties all through the 60 years of marriage to Harold D.
Hoffman of Fanning Springs.

She was from a polish family, raised in Poland and when
the Nazis occupied the country they incarcerated in two
camps, one in Poland, the other in France. She was then
sent to the US with the first exchange prisoners of war on
the U S Gripsholm, crewed by volunteers through active
Nazi untersee boats in 1943.

Helena was a frequent world traveler, an artist, ceramics
instructor; she became a manicurist in Palm Beach, FL
and one of her outstanding clients was John E Kennedy
for whom she manicured him for his swearing in ceremo-
ny as President.

She is survived by her husband Harold D. Hoffman of
Fanning Springs, daughter Lolita Marie (Paul) Creamer
of Gainesville, FL and grandchildren Paula Marie Cream-
er and Christopher Edward Creamer and many great
grandchildren.

Needless to say, she will be missed and remembered for
all of her activities.

In liqu of flowers, contributions to Haven Hospice of the
Tri Counties would be what she would have desired.
Arrangements are under the care of Hiers-Baxley Funer-
al Services, 1301 N. Young Blvd., Chiefland, FL 32626, 352-
493-0050. On line condolences may be sent through our

It was such an uplifting
time Sundaywith our
friends and visitors to hear
the Oconee River Boys! They
are down here singing great
Bluegrass Gospel! Thank
you Rusty and your group
for sharing the talents GOD
gave each of you! Also we
shared a wonderful
CHRISTMAS Banquet in
the gym! Marcia Bratcher,
her Mom and others pre-
pared Marcia's famous beef
tips and rice, with all the .
other county fixins'. The
ladies of the church pre-
pared some sinful desserts!
We are not going to even
count calories or grams of--
fat, huh? A great big "thank
you" to our young people,
all the helpers, those
preparing that good food,
those decorating, taking
down and cleaning up! It
was a day shared with
Christian friends and fami-
ly, as we celebrated the
birth of CHRIST together!

* Pastor Eric Justice at Ho-
mosassa Springs will be

vival on Dec, 13th & 14th If
you are interested in attend-


anyone had such a huge
problem that you thought
you or no one else could pos-
sibly fix it?' I know I have.
Well Pastor Richardson shed
some light on that by bring-
ing a very much needed
message straight from
James 4:7. Therefore submit
to God. Resist the devil and
he will flee from you. God
needs us to do two things
here, first we must submit to
God by abandoning our self-
ish pride, and second we
must resist any temptations
that the devil throws our
way. After we do these
things the devil will have
not choice but to flee. The


ing, please sign up on the
back table in the church.
The bus will bb leaving at
5:00 p.m.

Again we ask for your
love and help! Wopld all of

L
devil is no match for God or
those who surrender every-
thing to God. Our problems
are not to big for God, He
created the Earth and every-
thing in it in just a few days,
He' can surely handle any-
thing we got going on. We
just need to stand still and
let Him! Again this week we
saw so many new faces and
a lot of faces we have been
missing. It is so very nice to
see all of you back. We love
you and hope you have a
wonderful week. God Bless.

Thought for the week: When
God saw you it was love at
first sight.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, December 3 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. We are having a great time with
our Quilt Show. We will leave everything as is until the first
of the year and then it's time to get ready to take quilts and
crafts to Tampa to the State Fair. The week after we take the
items to Tampa, we go back down to judge the entries. After
all the entries are judged then others set up the displays for
the Fair. We'll go down on Feb 15 on the bus to enjoy a day at
the Fair and see what ribbons our quilts and crafts won. If
you want to go on the bus with us, call 352 493 2801. The cost
is $23.00 and we will have passes for everyone. The bus is
filling up. It will leave Chiefland at 7 AM and Williston at 7:30
AM. We leave Tampa at 4:30 PM so we can be home by dark.
It is a fun day.
We have many things coming up. We will be taking dona-
tions on the Log House that Was given to us a few years ago
and.we will be keeping the larger house. They are both beau-
tiful houses but.we have only rodm for one.
We do have lots of Christmas crafts for sale. There are so
many beautiful items this year. This is our 17th Quilt Show
and we look forward to it every year.
Thursday lunch was great with chicken noodle soup,
turkey salad, pea salad, crackers, bread, apple pie, brownies,
pecan pie, banana muffins, lemon cake and much more. It
was a desert day but it was all very good.

"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 was 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.
