On February 4, 3010, Sher-
iff's deputies responded to
the scene of a traffic crash
on south C.R. 349 Highway
just north of Suwannee.
When they arrived, they dis-
covered
the driver
of the ve-
hicle,
Freddie
L. Walker,
being ,
treated.
for his in-
juries.
Walker
stated
that he
and a pas-
senger
were trav-
eling
north on
C.R. 349 when someone fired
a shotgun into the passen-
ger's door as they passed by
Walker then lost control of
his vehicle running of the
roadway and striking sever-
al trees. Deputies suspected
that Walker's report might
be a fabrication to conceal
the events of the crash and
requested the Cross City
Correctional K-9 Unit to re-
spond. During their search
of the wooded area sur-
rounding the crash scene,
they discovered a New Eng-
land 12 gauge shotgun hid-


den in the woods near the
crash. The shotgun was re-
covered as evidence and
Sheriff's investigators sub-
mitted it to the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforce:
ment
Crime Lab
in Talla-
hassee.
N FDLE was
able to
identify
Walker's
DNA on the
shotgun in
question
and report-
ed these
findings to
the Dixie
County,
Sl eriff's
Office.

On December 10, 2010, Sher-
Siff's investigators arrested
Freddie Loye Walker, 47
years.of age from Old Town,
' for his involvement in this
incident.

Walker was charged with
Filing a False Police Report
and Possession of a Firearm
by a Convicted Felon. Walk-
er is currently being held in
the Dixie County Jail on
this and other unrelated
charges.

On December 11, 2010 the
Levy County
Sheriffs Office
received a rob-
bery alarm at
Tienda Mexican
Store. The vic-
tim advised the
Coihmunication
Center that the
three suspects
left in a white
Ford Explorer.
Prior to arriving
at the store the
vehicle was locat-
ed in the parking
lot of Stones BP
gas station. Two suspects
were seen entering the store
and a third suspect was get-
rting out of the Explorer.
Ofie of the suspects was tak-
en into custody
and the other two
suspects fled on
foot through a
heavily wooded
area., Three Sher-
Siffs Office K-9's
were utilized in
tracking the men
over three hours Medina v


but they were able to
elude deputies.


The investigation revealed
that the suspects entered
the store around 9:50 AM.
The suspects acted like they
were going to make a pur-


chase and while at the cash
register de-
manded mon-
ey armed
with a gun.
The clerk
and the male
customer
was pistol
whipped and
the male was
tied up. The
suspects
robbed the
clerk and the
customer of
an undis-
closed
amount of money and fled
in the above vehicle.

This is the second time this
store has been robbed at
gun point. On

THE DIXIE COUNTY ADV6 -'
Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921


Presidential wine dreams

Perhaps there's a more official sounding name for the
"DREAM Act," but it. doesn't really matter, because that's
what it's being called, all the way from the White House to
the San Diego slop chutes where the illegals and the other
contraband arrived until the tunnel turned up on the ICE
radar. No problem, though, other "reception centers"
abound; but at least someone's paying attention.

This abominable bit of legislative larceny is a dream, all
right. To conservatives, it is the sorff 'nocti4r'a.p.oIter-, '
geist that can follow intemperate inmpilgence 4 pvery-Sear,,
soned Mexican cuisine; but to liberals, it is what they get
from the consumption of what they consider to be "quality"
wine. A matter of taste, I suppose, but enough of this; we're
not actually talking about wine, we're talking about legisla-
tion--some that should be bottled up, corked with concrete,
put on the shelf and forgotten.

The "DREAM Act" is the far left's "solution" to the problem
of illegal aliens pouring over our southern border by the
millions while the federal government--as well as a lot of
state and local governments--look the otherw.ay We'll just
make them all citizens, then everybody will be happy Prob-
lem solved!

Actually, there are a few stipulations which would mitigate
the matter sonewhat--if they were enforceable. The
amnesty --and that's what it is-is supposed to apply only to
illegals.who were 16 or younger when they were brought
here by their parents. They are also to graduate from high
school or get a GED, then enlist in the military or enroll in'
college. Illegals with felony raps or "certain" misdemeanor
convictions won't be accepted. (Apparently such juvenile
pranks as assault, sexual abuse, or domestic violence won't
matter.) They also must have lived here for five years before
they qualify. But how do you verify how old a kid was when
his parents brought him here illegally? How do you know if
he's been here five years? Have the illegals been filing pa-
perwork all this time but no one told me?
4
Proponents of the so-called DREAM Act have trotted out
the customary liberal whine, "...but it's for the children!"
Apparently, all "anchor babies" will no longer have to be
born here. Anchor babies? Think about it. The kid's still in
school, living with his parents, the whole fam-damily is
here illegally, but now that junior qualifies for DREAM Act
amnesty, will our government send the parents back to
Mexico and leave their little urchin starving in the streets?

Actually, our government won't send anybody back across
the Rio Grande, and after bambino numero uno finishes his
apprenticeship and is awarded.citizen status, he can fast-
track his parents to permanent legal residency And did I
mention, colleges are encouraged to give illegals the advan-
tage of in-state tuition, and even that will no doubt wind up
being covered by the taxpayers.

In case nobody noticed, we have virtually ten percent un-
employment in this country, we don't need anybody here il-
legally competing for jobs! We also don't need military per-
sonnel who only joined up to avoid being shipped back to
Mexico. Since we don't send recruiting sergeants south of
the border to sign up young men and women who have bro-
ken no US laws, it doesn't make much sense to recruit peo-
ple who are here illegally to wear the uniform.

There is, of course, a reason why liberals want to let every-
body who can get into this country illegally stay around
and be put on a fast track to citizenship. It will supposedly
create a sense of indebtedness to the politicians behind this
scheme, and thus establish a Hispanic voting bloc that will
remain blindly loyal to the Democratic Party. They're prob-
ably not calculating the resentment this could cause among
Hispanic citizens who have made it here legally; but let's
face it, they're not looking for high IQ types and they des-
perately want to get Obama re-elected in 2012.

If that is likewise your heartfelt desire, then by all means
get behind the DREA, Act and encourage your legislators
to do likewise. 'i'-

Going on vacation? Remember the Alam
Going on vacation? Remember the Alamo


by Kathy McKinney


ear with me, readers. I've been awake since
:00 a.m. this morning, trying like heck to get
ack to Dixie County, east of the "sweet tea
nd grits line." It's 10:30pm, and I don't think
ve stopped since I crawled into a cab headed
for the airport this morning before daylight. I
may be a bit incoherent. I think I told you that I was plan-
ning a trip to San Antonio, Texas. Well, I went. I'm back.
(Did you miss me?)

I had a really good time, thanks for asking. Mr. John Broom
'came by and gave me some maps and some bus passes be-
cause he and his wife just got
back, too. He told me that the
San Antonio Riverwalk was
just amazing at Christmas. He
was so right. If you get a few
days to go somewhere, you'd be
hard pressed to find a better
place than the home of the
Alamo. Did you know that
there was a McKinney killed at
the Alamo? His name was
Robert McKinney and he was
from Tennessee. I'm sure we're
related somehow. We McKin-
neys are famous for fighting
unwinnable battles "just be-
cause it had to be done." I have
pictures of his name on the big
marble monument that stands outside the mission building.
Those Texan people take the Alamo seriously. They even
have a law that no building in San Antonio can even cast a
shadow over the Alamo. They don't play in Texas.

My oldest daughter Casey just got her Master's degree in Ur-
ban planning from FSU so this weekend was sort of a gradu-
ation present. Remind me, next time, though, to leave her at
home. She's too old to hang out with me. We'd get up in the
morning and start walking down the Rivetwalk, checking
out the stores, and the restaurants, and the Mexican Market
square, and by 4:00, she'd be all worn out and want to go
back to the hotel for nap. Seriously! After only six or seven
hours. She's not even 25 yet and I shopped circles around
that kid, I swear.

One good thing about travelling with a girl who looks like
Casey....the six foot tall, fashion-model-looking type.t.is that
you don't get bugged by the TSA. I'm not saying that there's
profiling going on, but they sure weren't "screening" we
chunky 40-something mom-looking types. I breezed through
without even a second look. Casey, though? She got pulled
*outedf ltle.iShe got X-Tayed: She.got the nekkle-full-body r
scan. They went through her purse.When wge,-r.Attingjn,,
ithe gate, waiting to board, they even came up with a hand-
held thingy and scanned our carry-on purses. (OK, to be
honest, they did that to everybody.) But it didn't take a rock-'
et scientist to figure out who was getting the full-court secu-


Dear Editor:

What is wrong with system?
I'm talking about DCF in
2002 they came to my home
and took 13 children: 11
were my grandchildren.
Two babies were born and
They took Them also. 2 of
my granddaughters stated
their faster father molested
them, it was blamed on fam-
ily members even though
we had proof' of our inno-
cence. They did return the 5
older children but adopted
out the rest.

There are case workers and
foster parents who know of
the corruption, but will be
fired if they speak out. I
know some who were fired.
And any grandparents who
has court order custody of
grandchildren beware. If
DCF wants the children
they will take then. If they
are little you won't have a
chance because DCF will
say grandparents have no
rights and the custody pa-
pers are invalid, I know it
happened to me. I had a
lawyer tell me that DCF
paints a bad picture and the
judge,will give them what
they want. I wonder if he is
standing up for the families.

Now DFC wants to adopt out
my great grandchildren
even through my grand-
daughter has done every-
thing. They said because
she was living with me and
I was there she could not
have her children, I moved
out so they wouldn't have
that excuse and I'm in GA.
Now no they are saying no
to her because she doesn't
have a drivers license and
that her grandparents are
providing for her. I didn't
know you had to have a dri -
vers license to have chil-
dren. It's OK for the state to
pay for their care but not
family

I feel the case workers and
foster parents who knows
whats going on should not
fear the state. If they all


stick together DCF will have
a hard time explain why
they are firing so many at
one time, God says in his
word 365 times th6u shalt
not fear, even through I had
some state worker claim
they are above the law and
there's nothing God can do,
they will be the ones an-
swering to God.

He says you reap what you
sow, and will get more in re-
turn. I can't imagine that
much suffering because of
all the phycial, mental and
sexual abuse you have al-
lowed to happen just be-
cause you wanted to prove
that the judge will give you
what you want, I know with-
out a doubt that God is
putting his people in places
that will see what happen-
ing and you will fall. Its
time for the tables to turn.

Praise the Lord.
Nina Lowe, Old Town


rity press...and it didn't have anything to do with national se-
curity It seemed to have a lot more to do with what the male
TSA agents liked to look at, if you know what I mean. I did
find a nice note when I got home in my suitcase saying
something like, "This note is to let you know that some TSA
agent pawed through your stuff while you were on the
plane. But he put it all back, so it's OK.Have a nice day, and
try not to wonder who was pawing through your underoos."
SWell, it didn't say that exactly, but that's what it meant.

What else? We ate some magnificent food. The best was at a
place called La Margarita--and yes, they had awesome mar-
garitas, with cherries in them, and we ate something called
Parrillada Estilo La Margarita...which was sort of a family-
Sstyle giganticfajita mix on a siz-
zling platter with chicken, beef,
ribs, sausage, some sort of
melty cheese with sausage in-.
side a chili, and big home fries,
all served with tortillas, rice,
and all the fixins. We didn't fin-
ish it. We tried mightily, but we
failed. I think I'm going to
dream about that Sunday lunch
for a long time.-Yum. We ate din-
ners out on the riverwalk, sit-
ting at sidewalk tables under
blinking Christmas lights,
watching the other tourists and
shoppers walk by and the ducks
swim around. Sure, it was 40 de-
grees, but every chair had a
Mexican blanket to wrap up in and outdoor heaters. Every-
body was friendly. It was lovely.

We rode the barge ride around the Riverwalk with a bunch
of Japanese tourists, looked at all the pretty Christmas
lights in the trees and on the bridges, listened to the high
School choir that just appeared out of nowhere singing
Christmas carols in what I called "a random act of awe-
some," and through another happy chance, got to watch a
traditional Mexican dance show. The little kids and teens
were all dressed up in the costumes of certain Mexican
states, and they danced traditional dances while their par-
ents and grandparents watched and.clapped like crazy We
followed the sounds of distant cannonfire (yes, canlonfire)
to the artsy area called La Villiata and walked into some
sort of historical ke-enactment. I have no idea what in par-
ticular they were re-enacting, but it involved fancy soldier
costumes, marching, and lots of booming.

It was great fun, and it was so nice to go somewhere differ-
ent. Texas really is like :'a whole other country," like the
commercials say. San Antonio was the perfect little three-
day getaway and IThopel.ango back one day and take tihem ,
little'kids:.(If only.toteit:atLa'Margarita again!) But..lJke....
all trips, thebeitipaft is' always coming home. Atid I sure am
glad to be back home in Dixie. So if you'll 'scuse me, I'm
going to hit the'hay now and sleep in my own bed. Buenas
noches, ya'll! .

Trail

MaOers

by Bonnie Wilson

You know there is nothing like
camping out in the forest with
good friends, good food, and
your best four-legged buddy,
what a combination! Now that
you have that picture planted
firmly in your mind let me tell
you my version of A Christmas
story....
It was our Levy Coun-
ty Horse Club Christmas party
and I was so looking forward to
it. This year it would be Christ-
mas in th w e woods. We could not
get a booking for our club par-
ty until around the actual
Christmas date. Dave and I had
planned on going down early
and spending the whole week
at the Tidewater trailhead for
our holiday party Everyone
was going to be there, and
there was so much excitement
in the air, you could actually
feel it and I don't mean static
electricity!
Christmas Eve
around the campfire was total-
ly awesome. With Fay's double
espresso coffee, and Randy,
Fred and Phil singing Christ-
mas carols, and the rest us
snuggled close to the fire. We
occasionally chimed in on the
chorus, and I was the happiest
person on earth or at the very
least, one of them! All too soon.
it was time for us to call it a
night and head to our warm
beds. I soon fell asleep quickly
with warm fuzzy feelings of
good will on earth and wishing
peace for all our troops in for-
eign lands.
Suddenly I was wide-
awake. I don't know what ex-
actly it was that brought me
fully awake. Was it a noise that
I heard? Perhaps it was just
Fay's double shot of espresso,
but whatever it was, I was fully
awake. Maybe I should just go
out and check on Coby and
Sporty to make sure they were
ok. I quickly got dressed and
quietly headed out the door of
our motor home. Boy that
Christmassy feeling had me
tingling from nose to toes. Such
a feeling;:.What was that?'I '
again heard the noise..I looked
carefully over to our horses.:
"Are you boys ok?" I whis-
pered. Coby snorted, so I
walked over to him and stroked
his head. "It's ok boy, I'm
here." It was just about then
that I heard more noise. What
is that? Oh my, I hope it's not a
bear. Then I saw a movement
in the bushes to my left. I
thought I saw a light appear
and then it went out. Well I
knew no self-respecting bear-
was going to carry a flashlight
so I allowed myself to breath
again. Then suddenly Bennie
appeared in front of me and we

both yelled at the same time.
"Bennie!" I said, "What are you
doing trying to scare me!"
"Hey!" she replied, "you scared
me!" "Well then I guess we
scared each other," I said. We
began to giggle. "I'm sorry,"
said Bennie "I thought I heard
something, so I went to check
on Willie." "Me too" I said. "It
woke me up from a sound
sleep. I was beginning to think
you were a bear until I saw
your flashlight". "What flash-,
light" she said. "You know I al-
ways carry my lantern". "Oh."
I said. "Your right! Well, if that
wasn't your flashlight in the
bushes', who's was it?" How
should I know," said Bennie.
Just about that time we both
noticed a quick flash of lights
coming from the bushes just a
few feet away "Did you see
that"? Said Bennie. "Yes," I
said and Bennie replied, "Hey,
lets go check it out!" I was not
too sure about trekking thru
the woods at night but I didn't
want Bennie to know I was
chicken; she would never let
me live it down. So, I swallowed
my gruesome thoughts and fol-
lowed Bennie in the last direc-
tion of the light. All of a sud-
den we stumbled over some-
thing on the ground. I hit the
ground with a thud right on
top of Bennie. "Get off me!"
Bennie said "Well, look where
we're going" I replied. As we
were arguing over who led the
other down the garden path, a
voice groaned beneath us,
"Could you two please get off
of me?" "What! Who's there!"
we both yelled as we jumped up
at lightning speed and soon dis-
covered we had landed on Ann.
"Ann! Oh my gosh. Are you ok?
What are you doing out here?"
said Bennie. "I heard a noise",
replied Ann "more like a crash
I guess, and I came out to inves-
tigate it. I tried to get Mike to
wake up and check it out but of
course he never heard it be-
cause he's snoring like Santa
Clause." Bennie and I both
laughed. We had also left Bill
and Dave sleeping soundly in
their beds. "OK Ann I said.
"So what did you find that
knocked you down...one of
Santa's elves?" We all three
laughed out loud. "Actually"
said Ann "I started out my
'ldoor-just in time to see Fay
Sheaded.this way so I followed
her". "Well" said Bennie "Let's
go find Fay!" Ann, Bennie and
myself headed thru the woods
looking to find Fay About a
good solid five minutes later we
found Fay She was talking to
someone. Who? "Listen" I said.
"I hear Fay, but I also hear -
someone ...something"? "Shh-
hh" said Bennie and Ann to-
gether. Ok- I thought, but it's
not a familiar voice. We tried to
get a little closer. "Hey guy's" I
whispered "you know this is
like in the movies where some-
. body always wants to go inves-
tigate and it turns out to be an
ax murderer." Ann got the gig-
gles and said, "We have to
check on Fay, it will be ok".
And Bennie added; "We can't
let Fay face this alone, and be-
sides that, I'd hate to be the ax
murderer that tried anything
on Fay! She'd whop the day-
lights out of them!" We all gig-
gled at that thought. However
as we three quietly crept closer
to where Fay was standing
with her back to us, we saw
something... something unbe-
lievably remarkable!
Join me next week for
the conclusion of my Christ-
mas story. Until next time
..happy trails!

Atlantic snook harvest
closes Dec. 15; catch and
release still OK

The recreational harvest of
snook will close in all At-
lantic coastal and inland
waters, including Lake
Okeechobee and the Kissim-
mee River, beginning on
Dec. 15. The annual winter
harvest season closure of
snook in. these areas, which
normally ends on Feb. 1, has
been extended until Sept. 1,
2011, by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) due to
the prolonged cold weather
that impacted snook in
Florida earlier this year.

The extended harvest clo-
sure will help protect snook
populations this winter
when they are most'vulner-
able to cold weather and


Cold weather may

lead to fish kills

As temperatures drop in Flori-
da, the number of cold-related
fih kills is likely to increase.
Chilly winter temperatures can
lead to fish die-offs in Florida's
marine habitats, rivers and
lakes.

The good news is that these
events are natural occurrences
and typically do not cause per-
manent damage to the ecosys-
tem or to fish populations. In
some cases they are even benefi-
cial, in that they help limit the
spread of invasive, exotic
species.

Fish kills are often caused by
sudden temperature fluctua-
tions or by extended periods of
extreme temperatures. Such
kills can occur any time of the
year in Florida, but they are
most common in winter, when
air temperatures drop.

Although water stays relatively
warm for awhile after the air
cools, extended cold snaps can
cause water temperatures in in-
land water bodies and estuaries
to drop. The cold may kill fish
outright by cold stress or weak-
en them so that they are more
susceptible-to disease.
Another phenomenon, called
lake-turnover, may occur when
suddenly cooled surface water
sinks and mixes with deeper,
oxygen-poor water. This can
'" "W ',


give snook added protection
during next spring and sum-
mer's spawning months. All
other Florida waters are al-
ready closed to the harvest
of snook until next Septem-
ber for the same reason.

Anglers may still catch and
release snook during the
harvest closure, and the
FWC encourages everyone
to handle and release these
fish carefully to help ensure
their survival upon release.

Snook regulations apply to
snook harvested in both
state and federal waters off
Florida, and no person may
possess any snook caught
during snook closed sea- '
sons.

For more information re-
garding the management of
snook in Florida, go to
MyFWC.com/Rules (click
on "Fishing Saltwater").

cause fish to suffocate, often
leading them to gulp at the sur-
face before they die.

Warm-water species, including
popular game fish like snook,
are particularly vulnerable to
cold temperatures. Exotic
species such as butterfly pea-
cock bass, tilapia, and sucker-'
mouth catfish are also especial-
ly susceptible to cold weather.

Fish affected by the cold may
appear lethargic and may be
seen at the surface where the
water may be warmer from the
sun. All recreational regula-
tions still apply to fish impacted
by the cold temperatures, even
if they appear to be dead or dy-
ing. It is important for Florida
Fish and Wildlife.Conservation
Commission (FWC) scientists to
keep track of the location and
extent of fish kills in natural
lakes and estuaries, to see if
there are problems developing
in an ecosystem that might re-
quire investigation or restora-
tive measures. Although it is
not necessary to report fish
kills in private ponds, FWC sci-
entists can assist the public by
providing information about
cold-weather fish kills in these
water bodies.

Residents can report fish kills
in natural water bodies to FWC
at
http://research.MyFWC.com
/fishkill/submit.asp or call
the FWC Fish Kill Hotline at
800-636-0511.

The JV boys continued re-
bounding, causing
turnovers and scoring
points in the first half and
took a 37-12 lead into Half-
time. The second half be-
longed to the Bears as well,
as they picked up where
they left off in the first half,
and took a dominating win
over the Bulldogs, winning
by a score of 62-19!

The Lady Bears took to the
floor next, and were ready
for the game with the Lady
Bulldogs. The Bears took a
5-0 lead early, and with 2:27
left in the first, the Bulldogs
cut the lead down to 11-9,
and eventually tied it up at
11 at the end of the quarter.
The game continued to be a
close one, as the Bulldogs
held a 40-34 at the end of the
third quarter. The Lady
Bears continued to play
hard, but at the final buzzer,
the Bulldogs came away
with a 56-44 victory over the
Bears.

It's now time for the Varsity
boys to hit the hardwood'


and take their turn in play-
ing the Varsity Bulldogs.
The Varsity boys got off to a
rough start, and the Bull-
dogs had a 18-6 lead over
them at the end of the first
quarter. The game didn't
fair much better for the
Bears as they went to the
locker room down by a score
of 31-17. The second half be-
gan just the way the first
had started, with the Bears
struggling a bit and the
Bulldogs making all the
shots. The Bears offense
could never find that spark
they needed to get it going,
and they took a hard loss to,
the Bulldogs by a score of
69-32.

The Bears next games are
on December 16th at home,
against the Branford Bucs.
Tip offs are : 3:30pm for the

Holidayfire
prevention facts from
*your local American
Red Cross Chapter

According to the National
Fire Proection Association,
four out of seven fires occur
during the months of De-
cember, January and Febru-
ary About half of these
fires are caused by candles
or faulty overloaded electri-
cal circuits. As families
turn to using alternative
methods of heating due to
the rising costs of oil and
gas, there is an increased
risk of accidental home
fires. Presently there are
over one million Red Cross
volunteers in 921 American
chapters that respond to
over 67,000 disasters per
year! Major disasters like
hurricanes, tornadoes
earthquakes and floods gen-


erally get the headlines, but
every single holiday fire
comes down to a single ter-
rible traumatic moment for
the families involved. Dur-
ing December through Feb-
ruary the majority of Red
Cross responses are for
house fires. Last year our lo-
cal chapter, based in
Gainesville, responded to
well over 100 fires to offer
assistance. Red Cross volun-
teers help victims of these
fires find immediate tempo-
rary shelter, provide them
with vouchers for food,
clothing and other needed
assistance. Our local chap-
ter would like to thank each
arid every Dixie County vol-
unteer for their efforts to
help others in times of cri-
sis. If you would like to join
this team of volunteers,
please contact our
Gainesville office 352-376-
4669 for more information.

District-wide Phase I
Water Shortage Advisory

A Phase I Water Shortage
Advisory was issued by the
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District governing
board Dec. 14 and will re-
main in effect until further
notice.

The District covers all of Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,
Hamilton, Lafayette, Madi-
son, Suwannee, Taylor and
Union counties, and por-
tions of Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Jefferson, Levy
and Putnam counties.

The advisory calls on all resi-
dential, commercial, agricul-
tural and industrial users to
voluntarily reduce both in-
door and outdoor water use
through conservation mea-
sures: The District already
has. a landscape irrigation
rule in place which limits
lawn and landscape watering
to one day per week during
fall and winter and two days
per week during spring and
summer. The rule took effect
in January of this year and
applies to all residents with-
in the District. It is perma-
nent, long-term, and requires'
mandatory landscape irriga-
tion conservation year-
round.

The Phase I Advisory, on the
other hand, is issued in re-
sponse to moderate or severe
drought conditions and re-
mains in effect only as long
as needed. The advisory
calls upon all residents to
voluntarily implement in-
door and outdoor conserva-
tion measures in addition to
those required by the year-
round landscape irrigation
rule.
Once drought conditions im-
prove and groundwater and
surfacewater levels rebound,
the governing board may
cancel the Phase I Advisory
Should conditions worsen,
however, the governing,
board may declare a Phase II
Advisory, which imposes
mandatory water-use restric-
tions.

Water shortage advisories
are issued by the District in
accordance with Florida
Statutes and the Florida Ad-
ministrative Code, which
give them authority to im-
plenient water shortage
plans.
According to the National
Weather Service, the Suwan-
nee River basin is experienc-
ing an extreme drought.
Megan Wetherington, a se-
nior professional engineer at
the District, said groundwa-
ter and surfacewater levels
continue to worsen through-
out the District due to below-

average monthly rainfall.
"River levels are extremely
low and groundwater levels
have fallen steadily since the
summer," she said.
In November, flows for the
Suwannee River and its trib-
utaries fell below the 5th
percentile for the period of
* record, meaning more than
95 percent of the time since
the 1930s they were higher
for this time of year than
they are currently.

Average groundwater levels
fell to the 33rd percentile in
November, based on records
beginning in 1978.
Total rain for October and
November was 1.33 inches,
the lowest since 2001 and the
eighth lowest since 1932.
Gages at Usher Tower (near
Chiefland) and-Starke re-
ported no rainfall in Octo-
ber, making it the driest Oc-
tober on record in those ar-
eas.
Wetherington said long-term
forecasts call for drier than
normal conditions through-
out winter and spring.
"With La Nina expected to
persist at least through
spring, the District may be in
for dry conditions for quite
some time," she said.
District officials are stress-
ing the need for conservation
until conditions improve.
Jon Dinges, the District's di-
rector of water supply and
resource management, said
the advisory is intended to
mitigate any impacts the
drought may have on our wa-
ter supply.
"With the drought conditions
we're experiencing, conserv-
ing our water resources is
more important than ever,"
Dinges said.
The District offers the follow-
ing water-saving tips:
* Fix leaky faucets and toi-
lets, which can waste up to
100 gallons per day.

* Replace older fixtures and
appliances with low-flow, wa-
ter-saving models.

* Tfrn off tap while brush-'
ing teeth, shaving, or wash-
ing dishes.

* Water lawns and landscapes
only one day per week and
not between 10 a.m. and 4
p.m.

* Use Florida-Friendly Land-
scaping.

* Equip hoses with automatic
shutoff nozzles.

* Wash vehicles infrequently
and only on porous surfaces.

* Use a broom or blower not
a hose to clean sidewalks,
driveways, parking areas.

* Take shorter showers; stay-
ing under 5 minutes can save
1,000 gallons per month.

* Don't use toilet as a waste
basket.

BATTLE OF THE BULGE

The Battle of the bulge be-
gan on Decem-
ber 16, 1944 as
Adolph Hitler
launched a
massive coun-
Steroffensive in
an attempt to
regain Western
Europe. A quar-
ter of a million
troops were
sent across an
85 mile stretch
of the allied
front, from
southern Belgium into Lux-
embourg, and the densely
forested Ardennes Moun-
tain regions. In deadly cold
weather, German troops.ad.r
vanced some 50 miles inf,, ,
the allied forces line of de:
fense, creating a "bulge",
for which the battle was
named.
Because of stormy weather,
which grounded allied air
forces and limited observa-


tions, the Germans assault
took the allies by surprise.
The Germans made rapid
gains at first, but resistance
from various units slowed
the progress long enough
for reinforcements. The help
came in the way of the First
Army, Ninth Army, and
from the
south, the
3rd Army,
-under the
command
of General
S George S.
S Patton.
By the end
of January,

Largemouth bass are amazing fish


* Late summer and fall provide
some of the best freshwater fishing
opportunities
By FWC Staff

When a male largemouth bass prepares
a spawning bed and the female lays her
eggs, the pair typically produces 5,000
- 10,000 fertilized eggs, and it may hap-
pen multiple times during the breeding
season that starts in the springtime.
The,male protects the eggs until they
hatch two to four days later, then the
young fish or fry live off yolk sac for a
couple of weeks, after which they start
feeding on microscopic animals. The
male continues protecting the fry until
they reach about an inch long, and they
start eating other fish including their
own brothers and sisters. They can eat
fish half as large as their own bodies, but
they also eat insects, frogs, crayfish and
shrimp among other things.
Over a spawning season, a big female
largemouth bass can produce 100,000
eggs, but only two of them have to sur-
vive long enough to become adults and
to breed to keep the population stable.
That takes two to four years ih the wild.
Bass survive by taking advantage of
their keen senses of sight, smell, taste,
hearing and touch, plus a lateral line that
enables them to detect motion in the wa-
ter around them. That helps them catch
food, even when they can't see well.
They can see colors and contrasts.
They seem to like reds and whites in
shallow water, and anglers know to use
those colors on the lures used to catch
them.
About 822,000 anglers target large-
mouths and other black bass in Florida
every year. If you take the number of
bass fishermen and multiply it by the
number of days they spend fishing for
them, the total is 15 million fishing days.
That compares to 6 million fishing days
for ted drum; the most popular saltwater
fish in Florida.
Florida has its own distinct strain of
largemouth bass in the southern two

thirds of the state. In the rest of the
state, the largemouth has a mixture of
Florida and northern largemouth bass
genes, which don't grow as fast. Nearly
all the top 25 bass reported anywhere
have some Florida bass genes.
The.largest bass ever caught was a
22.25-pounder, certified in 1932. The
largest ever caught in Florida weighed
a little more than 20 pounds; but fish-
eries biologists believe there are larger
ones swimming in Florida's -waters
right now.


The oldest largemouth bass ever
recorded in Florida was 16 years old.
Scientists can tel how old a fish is by
counting the rings on its ear bones,
similar to the way they can tell how
old a tree is by counting the rings in its
trunk.'
All trophy bass are females, because
typically only females get larger than
20 inches long or weigh more than four
pounds. Sometimes the males get a
little larger than that, but not typically.


FWC biologists list bass fishing honeyholes
Each year, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) fisheries biologists select a list of Florida lakes and
rivers as top black bass fishing destinations. This year's picks are:


* Lake Georgel8 miles northwest of Deland.
* Lake Tohopekaliga at Kissimmee.
* Lake Kissimmee, east of Lake Wales.
* Rodman Reservoir, east of Gainesville.
* Lake Tarpon near Tampa/St. Petersburg.
* Lake Weohyakapka, commonly known as Lake
* Walk-in-Water south of Orlando.
* Lake Istokpoga south of Sebring.
* Deer Point Lake north of Panama City.
* The Suwannee River from a swampy region near the
Georgia border to the Gulf of Mexico.
* The Everglades Water Conservation Areas in South
Florida.
* Crescent Lake near Crescent City.


* Tenoroc Fish Management Area near Lakeland.
Mosaic Fish Management Area in Polk and Hendry
counties.
For more details about how and where to fish these lakes,
updates throughout the year and information about fish con-
sumption advisories or special regulations, visit MyFWC.
com/Fishing/Forecast.

Fishing has never been easier in Florida
You may obtain fishing license privileges 24 hours a day by visiting
MyFWC.com/License or by calling 1-888-FISHFLORIDA (347-4356).
Processing fees apply on sales via telephone and Internet. A
unique license number will be assigned, which allows you to begin
fishing immediately after the transaction.


Support conservation


If you add up the numbers
economists use, you'll find
that in an average day, Flor-
ida's economy benefits by
$6.5 million from freshwa-
ter fishing in Florida. That's
about $4,500 every minute. It
also provides jobs for 23,500
Floridians.
In 2006, 14.4 million
days of freshwater fishing in
Florida were enjoyed by 1.4
million Americans over the
age of 16. Keeping Florida's
fishing spots healthy to sus-
tain quality fishing that keeps
them coming back requires
a significant investment in
research, management and
law enforcement.
Of those anglers, approxi-
mately 562,000.buy a fresh-
water fishing license. Most of
the others are exempt. Those
license fees pay for much of
the state's conservation ef-
forts.
Another important source


of money that pays for keep-
ing fish and wildlife in good
shape comes from the "Go
Fishing" license plate seen
on many cars and boat trail-
ers. It costs an extra $27 to
purchase the specialty license
plate. It features a natural un-
derwater scene in native eel-
grass with a largemouth bass,
bluegill and redear sunfish,
designed by Scott Hiestand.
The plate can be purchased
at most tax collectors' offices
or licensed tag agents or by
visiting www.BuyaPlate-com.
Another way to contribute
to fish and wildlife conserva-
tion is to visit www.Wild-
lifeFoundationofFlorida.com
and make a donation. While
there, purchase a Glen Lau
fishing print or DVD and re-
ceive a free 2008 bass calen-
dar and bumper sticker with
your purchase. The profits
support the Florida Bass
Conservation Center.


Here's how to tie a

knot that won't let

fish slip away

Improved clinch knot
Used for tying line to a hook, swivel and some artificial -


lures.


1. Put the tag end of the line
through the eye of the
hook and bring toward the
line.

2. Make five twists around
the standing line.

3. Take the tag end back
toward the hook and push
it through the first loop
nearest the eye. Bring
the tag end back through
the big loop made in. the'
previous step.


c /B 4. Holding the hook and the
line, pull the knot tightly
until it looks like the knot
at left.
Tie the knot correctly, and wet the knot prior to fully tighten-
ing it; Trim tag end to 1/8 inch after completely tightening
the knot.


State-of-the-art facility conserves


and enhances bass fishing in Florida


By FWC Staff
When the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) dedicated the
new Florida Bass Conserva-
tion Center in February, the
FWC began harnessing cut-
ting-edge technology to sup-
port the freshwater fishing
industry. Gov. Charlie Crist,
in a letter to FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto, said the cer-
emony ushered in a new era.
"This state-of-the-art facil-
ity, combined with new re-
search and production meth-
ods, will help ensure safe
and sustainable use of these
resources for generations to.
come," Crist said.
Recreational fishing pours
$2 billion a year into the
state's economy and sup-
ports 23,500 jobs. .The new
facility includes a pathology
Slab and will use genetic tech-


nology to enable scientists to
preserve the unique. Florida
largemouth bass that is na-
tive only to peninsular Flor-
ida and ensure only healthy
fish leave the lab for stocking
projects.
Plans call for a compre-
hensive library and Internet
data center and facilities to
host scientists from the high-
est levels of research.
A visitor center, with a
$6-million price tag, is part
of the vision. Most of the
funding for the visitor center
will come from private sec-
tor partners and matching
federal funds
Ed Moyer, then-director of
the FWC's Division of Fresh-
water Fisheries, initially pro-
posed construction of the new
conservation center about six
years ago when he and other
experts recognized the old


hatchery was too antiquated
and inefficient to match the
state's needs. He envisioned
a climate-controlled rearing
facility to give biologists an
opportunity to spawn bass
and other freshwater species
at the most favorable time
for stocking projects.
The new facility will en-
able scientists to produce
more fish than ever before
for stocking and to release
them when they can contrib-
ute most to healthy fisheries.
Combined with the FWC's
extensive efforts to enhance
aquatic habitats and to regu-
late the fisheries based on the
best scientific data available,
the possibilities can boggle
the mind.
"Think about it," Moyer
said. "We're already on top,
and we have no intention of
going anywhere but up."


The new bass conservation center replaced the 1965-vintage Richloam Fish Hatchery and
triples Its capacity to produce various bass, bream, catfish and feeder fish. (FWC photo)

biologists to hatch eggs
in well-oxygenated and
temperature- controlled
hatching jars and then
grow out the fry and
fingerlings Indoors to
avoid predators and
allow better monitoring
of diseases to ensure
quality. (FWC photo)

George William Good, Jr.


JAMES "JIMBO" EDWARDS, born March 19, 1986 in An-
chorage, AK, died on December 9, 2010 in Gainesville,
Florida. After graduating from Service High School in
Anchorage in 2004 he followed his brother across the
country to Gainesville, Florida. Prior to his first semes-
ter at Santa Fe Community College, he worked as "Oakey
the Turtle" at the Oaks Mall in Gainesville. He loved it
when the little kids would run up and wrap their arms
around his knees. He earned his AA degree from Santa
Fe in 2008 and was currently a senior at the University of
Florida. He planned to attend medical school and prac-
tice psychiatry; he possessed a special gift for relating to
and helping others. Outside of the classroom he was very
involved in student government and volunteered at the
Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville.

Jimbo was baptized at Suwannee Baptist Church in 2000
by his uncle, Pastor Fred Edwards. He is survived by his
mother, Melanie Wheelright Edwards of Anchorage, AK;
his father, and step-mother, Sam Edwards and Margaret
Volz of Wasilla; his brothers, Eric Edwards of Denver and
Bill Edwards of Minneapolis and his grandmothers, Geri
Wheelright of Anchorage and Betty Sue Edwards of
Suwannee, Florida. Also sharing their grief is his
"adopted" brother Joe Moody, his former sister-in-law, Es-
ther Massey Edwards and many other aunts, uncles,
cousins and friends and last but not least, his dog, Gonzo.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Lisa, and his
grandfathers, Robert "Bob" Wheelright and William
"Bill" Edwards.

Jimbo could best be described as kind, tender, generous,
humble, fun loving, and more than a little stubborn.
Jim's laughter, humor, love and warmth were appreciated
and are already missed by his family and friends. Jimbo
had a tattoo of a dove memorializing his sister Lisa and
we are comforted in the knowledge that they are together.

There will be a graveside service at Fort White Cemetery
on Wednesday, December 15, 2010 at 1:00 PM. In addition,
his Alaska family and friends will gather at a later date in
Anchorage. The family asks that in lieu of flowers,
memorials be directed to the Crisis Center in Gainesville,
any other suicide prevention services in your community
or an animal rescue organization.

Arrangements have been placed under the care of the
Rick Gooding Funeral Home, Cross City, Florida, 352-498-

"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?
I
Keeping Businesses Open
We figured they would tell us to take a nutnber 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 spill. It 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
Sone 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.
