Legislative Delegation

Hearing Held In Dixie
By Terri Langford -Staff Writer
Last week, September 8th, 2005, Senator Nancy Argenziano
and Representative Will Kendrick held their annual Legislative
Delegation Hearing at the Dixie County Courthouse Commission
Chambers. It was an opportunity for county and city officials and
residents alike to present their needs and concerns to our
representatives in Tallahassee.
Evonne Cline of the Dixie County Historical Society was the
first to address the 'delegation, giving them an update on the
reconstruction efforts of the old-Old Town Elementary School.
Cline expressed her personnel "thanks" and that of the Society for
all the help they had received from Kendrick, Argenziano and

Kendrick. The two legislators visited Dixie County last week, holding
their annual Legislative Delegation Hearing. Both Argenziano and
Kendrick were praised by city and county officials for their support and
help in getting Dixie their fair share from Tallahassee and Washington.
Representative Dwight Stansel, who was unable to attend the
meeting. "It is through grant monies that we have been able to
continue with the project, and we are so very grateful for all the
support you have shown up," stated Cline. Both Kendrick and
Argenziano stated they were impressed with the progress of the
project and vowed to continue to support their reconstruction
Cross City Correctional Institute Warden Farcas, along with a
room-full of CRCCI employees came to thank the Delegation for
their recent pay raise. He extended his gratitude to the
Commissioners, School Board, Sheriff Hatcher and Secretary
Crosby, for the support they had all shown to the institution and
their staff. Farcas noted that CRCCI has and will continue to be
active in the community, noting that they currently have the largest
Take Stock In Children mentoring group in the state. Argenziano
stated that she knows first-hand of the reputation of the Cross City
institute, noting Secretary Crosby's efforts in making sure they got
their fair share. Throughout the meeting city and county agencies
expressed their thanks to CRCCI and Warden Farcas for their use
of inmate labor, reducing costs on projects and in some cases
making the difference on whether or not a project would be
feasible without their contribution.

Suwannee Developers

Offer Water Partnership

To Suwannee Water Board

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
The Suwannee Water &
Sewer District (SWSD)
monthly meeting was far from
business as usual as they were
approached by five Suwannee
developers that are willing to
enter into a public-private
2,2o fee, S partnership with the District to
offset the cost of water
distribution lines, needed by
both the residents of Suwannee
and the condominium projects
slated to begin this year.
Developers from- the
Suwannee Point, Suwannee
Cove, Suwannee Sunset,
I eSuwannee Place Resort and
Seete2707seel Royal Coast projects. were
made aware that SWSD has
more than enough water to
e r pa u e p supply their multi-family units,
o but that the outdated water
distribution lines are unable to
provide the pressure needed to
get the water to the units. As it
is now, residents in some areas
Pictured above is a preliminary drawing of the proposed water distribution "trunk-line" that would be of the community have more of
constructed and paid.for bya group of Suwannee developers. a "spit bath" than a shower:
In a highly unusual move,
the five developers, normally in competition with each other, have joined together and formed the Suwannee Water Improvement Group,
Inc. "SWIG" with the sole intent 6f solving the pending distribution line problem. The non-profit organization brought their proposal
before the SWSD B6ard, hopi i nit they (the Board) would see it as a "win-win" solution; helping not only the developers but the
community as a whole.
At no cost to the Board or to the residents of Suwannee, SWIG would pay for the construction of a new "trunk line" that.could be
used as the backbone for the community lines when they are able to secure funding for the replacement of the old distribution lines. In
addition to the 8" and 10" lines used on the mainline, SWIG would provide a storage tank and booster pump system needed to carry the
water down the line. All this would be done in lieu of any normal connection fees associated with new dwellings.
Donnie Ellington of Causseaux & Ellington, Inc. Engineering, Surveying & Planning, went over the preliminary plans for the project
and estimated the cost at $370,000.00 to the developers.
Concerns were voiced over possible roadway damage. Ellington noted that any road surface that would have to be cut would receive
a temporary "patch" until the entire pipeline was laid and then they would go back with a permanent re-surface of that portion of the
road. In trying to calm any fears of possible "sloppy" work, it was noted that the developers' already have invested a lot of time and
money in their projects and would not allow sub-standard work to jeopardize their progress. As one developer put it, they are here in
hopes to enhance the community and bring in revenue, not to promote problems.
The SWSD Board gave a tentative nod of approval. However, they appointed a committee to review the resolution presented.by
SWIG Attorney Ted Burt. Serving on the committee is SWSD Attorney Ray E. Thomas, Engineer Frank Darabi, SWSD Manger Rocky
McDaniel and either Board Member James Brown or Jimmy Hall. The committee will meet between now and the next Board meeting,
30 days from now, at which time they will give the Board their recommendations for change, if any.
If approved, the resolution would be advertised in the local newspaper for two weeks. From there the SWIG contractors would need
30 days for planning and then an additional 90 to 120 days for the construction of the line.

Juveniles Arrested In School Burglaries.
By Terri Langford
Over the Labor Day weekend local law enforcement were
called to Ruth Rains Middle School and Dixie County High School
to investigate break-ins at both schools. On September 6th, 2005,
the day after the holiday, three juveniles, two 15 years of age and
one 12 years of age, were arrested on charges stemming from the
According to a report filed by the Dixie County Sheriff's
Office, while at Ruth Rains Middle school the suspects broke into
the cafeteria by breaking a lock off the office window and then
broke'the office door handle. While inside they found $5.00 in
change, which they took and allegedly split between them.
The three students also went to the Dixie County High School
campus where they broke into the cafeteria there and health clinic.
The suspects entered the cafeteria through the west door, stealing
some snacks out of the vending machines and defecating in one of
the trash cans. They then proceeded to the Health Clinic, entering
through the front window. While in the clinic they took a picture
and with one of the clinics stamps and ink pads, stamped all over
the walls and cabinets.
The three juveniles were each charged with 4-counts of
burglary of a structure, 2-counts of trespass on school property,
and 2-counts of theft.

John Clifton, 37 of Interlachen was headed south on SR 349 when

Dennis Bradley of Old Town. Clifton traveled another 38 feet

; Some reasons for high gas prices
Driving through Cross City on US 19, one cannot help
Noticing D's Country Store, a business that went out of business
just a few years ago, when it was selling gasoline for $1.449 a
gallon. A nostalgic trip north on SR 351 will take \ou to
1Higginbotham's Store, where they no longer sell gasoline, but
when they last did it was $1.759 a gallon..
It hasn't been that long since gasoline could be purchased at
comparable prices just about anywhere; however, today the price
hovers around $3.00 a gallon, with a somewhat limited prospect
of any significant drop in that figure.
To many critics of this development, there are but two places
to place the blame: the guy who sells you gas at the comer service
station, and the President of the United States.
As for the local retailer, he has little choice. He has to make a
profit, if for no better reason than it's actually illegal for him to
sell below cost--not that he could stay in business for long if he
did, but some retail giants might do this for the short term in
hopes of gaining control of the market. And of course, if the local
retailer's margin of profit gets too profitable, he could be in
trouble for "price-gouging."
As for the President, he doesn't set the price of oil, but he is in
a position to apply some pressure on those who do. So is
Congress, and there are plenty of places to apply that pressure if
anybody is really interested in doing so.
Energy independence has always been a good'idea, but now
it's a matter of national survival. Cut the flow of cash to the
OPEC countries, and we will seriously fracture the finances of the
Islamic terrorists. Add to this the obvious advantage of keeping
the money right here in our own economy, and you've got a solid
case for telling the environmental wackos to sit down and shut up.
We need to drill for oil ,in the Alaskan Wildlife Refuge. It's
there in abundance, and the proposed site is a remote wilderness
far removed from the wildlife the environmentalists fancy they are
We need to expand offshore drilling to Florida's Gulf Coast,
where the opposition comes from developers who build high rise
condos and worry that oil rigs on the horizon would spoil the
view from the penthouse suites.
We need to build refineries. We haven't seen a new one go up
in 30 years. The NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) crowd doesn't
like them. Tough. Massachusetts would be a good place to start.
Specifically, Hyannisport.
When gas prices took off in the 70s, the government leaned on
the auto industry to build fuel-efficient cars. In 1988, I bought a
Chevy Sprint (3 cylinder, 4 passenger) made by Suzuki that got
50mpg, and it was an economy car in price as well as
performance. Today, you can't.get anything Chevrolet, Suzuki or
Anyone else sells that can touch 50mpg at a low-end price.
I've talked to enough people who have worked in the
; automotive industry to believe that the stories about engines that
will turn out up to 100mpg or even more aren't just urban
legends. Common sense tells us that, if the industry could market
an economy car that got 50mpg in 1988, it.could do even better by
this time, given what gets invested in research. The question is,
why is nobody in government making a significant effort to
pressure the auto industry into making more fuel-efficient cars
If you remember back to the 1950s and 60s, the major oil
companies were advertising big time on TV about how their brand
of gas was the best one on the market. Today, if you even see an
oil company ad on TV, it's a PR pitch about how well they're
;i taking care of the environment. So, whatever happened to the
fierce competition that brought on all that TV advertising way
back then? Are the industry giants not really all that competitive
All' right, Hurricane Katrina hit the supply and processing
areas hard, and thai crimped the supply; but this effect will be
Temporary. We can only wait and see if $3.00 a gallon gas prices

Letter to the Editor
Be patient, and then point your finger later!
It is normal for people to grow tired or burned out from
watching all the news coverage about the humanitarian efforts for
the people devastated by Hurricane Katrina, but recently, I
watched yet another program; NBC Dateline. A question was
asked, "What can we do to make sure this never happens again?"
Just like every devastating circumstance that has happened in any
of our lives, we only learn or understand some things, we forget
some things and under duress, we often do not follow our plan, we
just react to whatever is necessary at the moment. We need to
realize that all the things we complain about will continue to exist
until the end of time, and that we waste more time pointing fingers
instead of taking care of the matters at hand. POINT LATER!
Is our retention span so minimal that we have forgotten the
devastation of Hurricane Andrew? OK, there was no flooding, and
that storm wouldn't make a pimple on Katrina's backside. What
about the Tsunami that hit Indonesia and Sri Lanka? OK, I realize
that was not our country, not our people, but they were devastated
far beyond anyone imagination young, old, affluent, poor, wild
animals, domestic animals and the aftermath of that devastation
was on every television news program and every newspaper and
magazine for a long time and Americans gave, prayed and went to
help. So did we NOT look at their devastation and wonder,
"Hmmm, what if...?",
For many years, we Floridians grew complacent after hearing
constant barrages from weather personnel of storms coming our

way, but never hitting our state. Many held "hurricane parties"
because they grew weary of the "cry wolf" syndrome, but then
Hurricane Andrew hit. Even after that storm, we forgot and
became complacent again until the "Four Furies" hit our state and
now we are almost paranoid whenever a storm even looks like it
might come this way, especially if we have not yet finished
repairing our properties.
People are complaining about aid not coming fast enough. My
experience has been that when you are IN the devastation, you
have no time to do anything but react NOW. We all have our,
agendas, and when you are not in the devastation, you have time to
think and choices to make...should you do anything, what should
you do, where are you most needed, what about your job, your
family, your health and your strength? It takes time for people to
process information, gather their necessary supplies, then act.
With thousands of volunteers from all over the country and Canada
to help, plus 40,000 military personnel, where will they stay, how
will they eat, what about toilet facilities for them...we don't want to
add to the problem. We are a great and giving nation when
disaster strikes, but we all need to be patient. Yes, people will
suffer trauma, get sick, die, commit suicide, that is inevitable, but
we cannot panic because someone does not give us what we need
When you know you live in a potential hurricane area, you
should know about hurricane preparedness and be ready. If you
are new to those areas and do not learn about preparedness, you
must have previously lived under a rock to not know there are
things people need to know and do in these areas. Also, it amazed
me when I learned from the Dateline program that a hurricane
preparedness video was planned to air in New Orleans the week of
the storm. Why wait for the height of hurricane season what
happened to "June 1"?
Some people on the program were saying the government
should apologize for all those who died in the aftermath of the
storm. Should the government really apologize when the people
knew there was a hurricane coming right at them, when they knew
they lived in a "soup bowl" with levees that could be breached,
when they were told to evacuate? I realize not all people could
evacuate, but many people yelling for help on TV are also sitting
back saying "gimmie" instead of doing something for themselves
and others. I was encouraged to hear a couple of stories on the
program: Right after the storm and flooding, there was a family -
Mom, Dad and 3 children, who were interviewed while walking.
They feared being robbed in the shelter of the few possessions they
had, and even though they had nowhere to go, instead of waiting
for something to happen, they were walking until they got
SOMEWHERE. Also, there was a family with a single Mom,
flown to San Diego, Californiato try to have some normalcy, and
like so many, they lived paycheck to paycheck. They knew no one
there, and they knew life was going to be hard, but they are strong
and have faith in God. When asked how much money she had in
the bank before the storm, the woman said, "about $450, but that
won't do me any good right now, hey we'll be fine!"
Who is truly at fault for such death and destruction of New
Orleans? An authority from. New Orleans told the Dateline
reporter that the government knew greedy Developers built so
much that they compromised the integrity of some parts of the
levee around the city, yet nothing was ever done. They knew that
if and when New Orleans took a direct hit, it would be nasty! It's a
shame that the people in the "soup bowl" didn't know this. Or did
We need to be ready EVERY time a storm comes our way. We
need to be patient when we are devastated and in need. We need
to think, and then do whatever is necessary for our survival. And
we need to thank God for everything, no matter what! He 'didn't
make this situation happen, but with faith, He will help us through

Letter To The Editor
Trash Along The Roadside
I have been noticing lately that someone has been trashing the
fair byways of our County. As a Dixie Countian I know that no,
local citizen would do such a thing to our beautiful roadways. It
thereby only stands to reason that it must be some out of county
nefarious ne'er do well types such as Yankees.
Now I have met some of the Yankee race who seem and act
quite friendly and alright. In fact they -was by all accounts fine
folks. Howsoever, it is a known fact that those of the roadways is
just the kind of unsavory kind of conduct that Yankee outlanders
might be expected to engage in.
Therefore I suggest that we put up road signs forewarning.
those of the Yankee race that fouling our fair byways with their
unwanted trash and Yankee garbage will result in being arrested
and hauled before the magistrate and after due legal process, put on
the chain gang and put to work cleaning up the mess they and their
rascally race have perpetrated.
What? Ya say some of them might be home bom and raised
Dixie Countians? Nah! I don't believe that. Can't be. Hmmm.
Hey, ok, so this is tongue in cheek, but really, there must be'
some out there who think that after it goes out the window that it
just disappears. Lets talk about it a little and maybe some will.
come to realize that their discards really do litter the roadside and:
uglify our byways and thus enlightened will mend their ways.

Continued from page 1
On those same lines Commissioner Marcus Hays brought up
the subject of a new ruling that allows correctional institutions to
charge for inmate services. Hayes hopes that the Dixie Delegation,
who opposed the ruling, will be able to turn the decision around.
Argenziano stated that she felt inmates should give back to society
and not be paid while serving time. Kendrick agreed and they both
vowed to continue to work on having the ruling changed.
Chad Reed, Emergency Services Director, asked that
Emergency Management go back to an all hazards planning
approach, as it was prior to 911. Reed noted that he and a team
from Dixie had recently returned from Gulfport, MS and came
back with a better understanding of what needs to be done to
prepare for a disaster like Katrina. He noted that he and his team
would be fine-tuning Dixie's Preparedness Plan. Argenziano
praised the Florida statewide Emergency Services and feels we are
much better prepared than our neighbors west of us.
On a lighter note the Delegation presented Old Town
Elementary a $44,175 check and James M. Anderson Elementary
with a $51,146 check, for their outstanding academic achievement
and improvements over the past year. AES is now a "B" school
and OTES an "A". The monies awarded to the schools were made
possible by Florida's A+ Plans, School Recognition Program.
OTES Principal Sonny Wadsworth and AES Principal Denee Hurst
were on hand to receive the award. Hurst noted that much of the
recognition for AES is due to the hard work by her predecessor,
Gary Durham, who is now serving on the District level.
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher offered his personal thanks for the
support the Delegation had shown the Sheriffs office throughout
the year.
Mark Rains, Director of Support Service for the Dixie District
Schools talked about the district's fuel conservation plans and
partnership with Levy and Gilchrist County system in dealing with
the new volunteer and contractors' screening law incorporated in
the Jessica Lunsford Act. Both Kendrick and Argenziano are
staunch supporters of the law and stated that the legislature may do
a "glitch bill" to clarify areas of the law that have become a
monetary issue for contractors.
County Manager Arthur Bellot spoke to the Legislators about
future plans on securing funding for the Joe Henry Anderson, Sr.
Park located on the Suwannee River. Bellot also noted the need for
public boat ramps in our coastal communities. The Delegation
promised to support these issues and help the county secure
funding when opportunities arise.
Commissioner Driggers asked for their support in the county's
request for funding for an agricultural pavilion. They agreed to
look into the request.
Commissioner Land expressed his concerns over recent fuel
costs and availability. Senator Argenziano has suggested to
Commissioner Bronson that the state should temporarily wave the
state gas tax, which would save consumers approximately 12 cents
a gallon. However, she also noted that it would cost the state 1.4
million a day, a big chunk out of their budget. She noted that
legislators throughout the state were currently addressing this
issue. Land also asked for help in getting the recent hunting dog
registration law reversed. While the delegation was sympathetic,
even agreeing with Land, they noted that the Florida Wildlife
Commission was a tough agency to oppose. Kendrick reminded, us
of the continued battle over net fishing in which he has been
actively pursuing the rights of the fishermen.
Commissioner Lamb asked for their help with the revived
hospital plans for the Tri-County area. Both Kendrick and,
Argenziano agreed to lend their full support on the project. Both
Commissioner Lamb and Commissioner Valentine asked for their
help -in getting the Shired Island Road repaved. He noted that the
road is not only the only land access to the county park; but to a
National Wildlife Refuge as well. The Legislators promised to
lend their support and speak to the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT).
Cross City Manager, Mike Cassidy, addressed another roadway
concern, which affects truck and school bus traffic. Cassidy spoke
about the ongoing battle with the FDOT to have a traffic light put
at the intersection of the Continental Road and US 19. Cassidy
noted that in order to temporarily help with the truck traffic the city
and county will be making a truck route away from the current
road that passes the EMS station and Anderson and Ruth Rains
Middle Schools as well as the congested area around the County
Courthouse. He noted that stop signs are to be placed in front of
the Courthouse area in the next several months, which they'hope
will slow down the through traffic in that section of town.
Both Representative Kendrick and Senator Argenziano thanked
everyone for coming and letting them know what to go to bat for in
the upcoming session. They vowed to continue to be the voice of
the people whom they represent and are proud to be a part of.

Florida) today provided the following information for those who

Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
Those who wish to make donations are encouraged to contact

The residents of Dixie County who wish to volunteer their time

with relief efforts along the Gulf Coast.
"Many Floridians have contacted .my office asking for
information on how to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina," said
Congressman Boyd. ."The American Red Cross and your local
Emergency Management Office are both good places to start if> ou
want to offer help or need information. At this time, local, state
and federal organizations are responding to what is certainly one of
the largest disaster response efforts in our nation's history. I
commend the residents of North Florida for stepping up and

Tri-County Hurricane Disaster Relief Site Still Open

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
Local businessman, Robert
Brim of A-Brim
Transportation in Old Town
set up a semi-trailer at the
Hitchcock's parking lot last
week, hoping to fill the cargo
box up and send the much
needed supplies gathered to
folks hit by Hurricane Katrina.
He never would have believed
that within days the 53 foot
trailer was loaded to the top
and on its way west to a
Methodist church in Wiggins,
A second trailer, 48 feet
long, is already half-full and
will be going to a Methodist
church in Laurel, MS as soon
as it is filled.' Folks are really
needing non-perishable food,
school supplies and hygiene
products (especially for
When word got out last
week for the need for
volunteers at the site, our
veterans really came through.
Flags from all branches of
service are proudly displayed
in front of the trailer, a
reminder that we are a nation
that is proud and united.
Brim made a special trip
himself this week, delivering a
truck load of supplies to Becky
Havard of Lucedale, MS, a
family friend of Donna
Goodson King. Becky was
able to get hold of Donna and
relay horror stories that are
occurring in the ravaged
Mississippi coastal
communities. While her
electricity had been restored,
she is unable to get basic
supplies needed to feed her
family. Even if they have
money, they are unable to find
items to buy. Gas is being
rationed and mail is just now
beginning to trickle in.
Becky's biggest concern
however has been that she is
unable to get a special formula
for her baby who suffers from
When Donna told the
group at the Relief Site of her
friends' plight, Brim decided
there was only one thing to do,
and that was to load up the
pickup and deliver Becky the

items she needed. Donna and
her family gathered all they
could, including the precious
formula the baby needs and
brought it to Brim and his
crew. They packed and iced
and headed west.
They promise to bring back
pictures of Becky and her
family as well as from the
churches they will be

delivering to.
Please gather your items to
be sent and get it over to the
drop off at Hitchcock's.
Saturday there will be some
special entertainment as a
Gospel music band will be on
the site, lifting up those
working and those giving.
Brim and the volunteers
would like to take this

opportunity to give a special
thanks to the folks at
Hitchcock's for allowing,them
to park in their lot and to
CITCO for .providing coffee
and snacks to the volunteers.
Of course it goes without
saying that they thank each and
everyone who has brought
items and worked on the relief

Good Luck!!

New Prospect Baptist News
With just a touch of fall in the air, our temps, especially during'
the cooler nights, are becoming much more comfortable. On
Sunday,, we were once again granted the privilege of gathering
ourselves together for the purpose of worshiping our Heavenly
Father. Our choir did a fine job singing, after which Bro. Billy did
an admirable job delivering God's message from Genesis 12:1-2.
On Wednesday night, September 14th, our monthly Business
Meeting is scheduled to coincide with our Mid-week Prayer
Service. The following Wednesday, we will have our monthly
Fellowship Supper in the church annex. Some of our new
programs have gotten off to a good start recently, and we look
forward to even greater- things for the advancement of God's
Kingdom as we go along.
As always, there are many needs for prayer in our area, as well
as our nation and the world. Please remember the people on" the
church prayer lists, the ones dispossessed by hurricane Katrina, our
military personnel, and our nation's leaders in your prayers. Also
remember that you're always welcome to visit New Prospect, or to
find a church home with us...we'd love to have you! Have a good
week, and may God bless you.

Abundant Life & Living
Good attitudes versus bad attitudes, attitudes has a great
bearing on our life and living,. Attitudes sets the tone of how one
perceives us as a whole. Our
'::. .. attitude sets the mode of how we
perceive and accept each day,
whether it will be a good day or a
.. bad day for us. Attitudes causes us
..to make good or bad decisions at
times. Attitudes causes us to loose
or gain good friends. Attitudes
make good or bad relationships
with family members. Attitudes
also makes good or bad
relationships with your employer,
employees, or colleagues on the
Lucille Stockton job. Do a self analogy test on
yourself, go to your mirror and smile, frown, smirk, gesture with
your body and hands and practice eye contact. All in ways that.
you answer or act toward people in general every day. Then
check to see if that is the way you would like to be responded
too. In all the actions, take time to empathize the facts, because
only you can change yourself into a better or worse person. Only
you can choose for yourself to have a positive or negative
attitude. If you choose to have a negative attitude. If you choose
to have a negative attitude. If you choose to have a negative
attitude, you will know it hurts you in all the areas of your life
and living. "Love Life And Live It.",

Calvary Temple Update
Calvary has chosen not to submit a weekly article. This
however does not mean that nothing is happening. We would like
to submit an update for those who keep us in their prayers!
People continue, to be saved along and along. Not as many as
we would like but we thank God for each of these precious souls.
This past Sunday we were blessed to baptize six people in water.
This past Saturday our men enjoyed a wonderful men's fellowship.
The Kid's Church is growing and expanding. Soon we will be
offering Kid's Church on both Sunday morning and Wednesday
evening. A couple of Sundays ago they really blessed us with a
couple of special songs. Kid's Church leadership meeting will be
held Saturday, September 17th. Calvary now supports eleven
missionaries and mission programs.
Special "hurricane victims" offerings to be received on
September 18th and October 1st. Sister Louise Tyson will be the
guest speaker on Sunday, September 25th at 10:30 AM. The "Tape
and CD" ministry continues with 75-100 free tapes and CD's
distributed every week. Testimonies from this ministry continue to
come in. A medical doctor in South Florida recently called, to order
some of Pastors' books and testified that through the tape ministry
both his parents had received the Lord. Calvary Temple now also
has a Prison Ministry several times each month.
We are now in the process of remodeling our bathrooms, tiling
the foyer, and redecorating both hallway and church. A Tuesday
evening prayer service is being added to our schedule from 7-8
PM. New people are coming into the church family old family
members are returning. Unfortunately we are losing some people
in the process who do not like the direction the church is headed in.
"A Voice From Calvary" radio program will begin October 3rd
on 91.5 FM. This will be five days a week, Monday-Friday at 9:30
AM & 5:30 PM. Soon we anticipate being on several other stations
as well. Praise and Worship at Calvary continues to be awesome.
(Contemporary style) This "Team" does not just put on a show in
supposed praise but they bathe their ministry in prayer. The "drive
through road" at Calvary' will be blacktopped within the next 2-3
weeks, with a drive under rain shelter to soon follow. Pastor Jim
has how completed nineteen books over the last twenty months,
eleven of these which are now in print with the others soon to
follow. A web site is being built to make these books available to
the public. Overall, God is richly blessing the church and its
Some continue to struggle within themselves, but by God's
grace they will soon overcome. The presence of the Holy Spirit in
most services is awesome, while a few will be blah. It all comes
down' to how much time we have spent in prayer prior to the
service. God is beginning to give some of the family both dreams
and visions. We are busy trying to recognize each and every gift
and talent that is among us and release into ministry. Calvary "is
not" a political church, not a traditional church, and not a board
ruled church. We function under the spiritual covering of our
organization, which is the Assemblies of God. Our focus is Christ
and Christ alone! Our mission is to please Jesus! It is all about a
King and His Kingdom, not about us. We own nothing it all
belongs to Jesus we are simply caretakers! Our doors and hearts
are open to you.
At Calvary you will be accepted and respected for who you are
and not what your last name might be, where you live, what color
your skin is, and not what social class you might fit in. Our
objective is to create "a level playing field" for every sincere
believer without favoritism or prejudices. To the best of my

knowledge there are no controlling, dictating, dominating spirits
that are in operation. Our objective is to yield everything over to
the Holy Spirit. By the grace of God we will become the church
that Jesus wants us to be. We are not there at the present, but we do
have an idea of what He desires, "and that is that He be permitted
to be the Lord of the church." Join us anytime, try to work around
our flaws, show yourself faithful and consistent, and you will be
afforded opportunity to utilize your gifts and talents for Jesus.
Come see us! Services are at 10:30 AM Sunday and 7:00 PM

Once again God has spared us frotn a hurricane. God is so good
and we can't thank Him enough for His special blessings. We had
a glorious and beautiful day. The weather was gorgeous, our crowd
was large and the special music was outstanding. Bro. Jackie was
away at Mt. Nebo in revival and Bro. Bobby Bryan filled in for
him in the morning service and Bro. Buddy Britton in the evening
service. They both did wonderful jobs delivering the messages God
had laid on their hearts.
God has placed so much talent in our midst and He chose
people who are willing to use those talents for Him. The sign up
sheet for next church year offices is on the.bulletin board in the
hallway and it's time to gather our officers for the coming year. If
God has given you a talent to teach, work with the youth, or just
"whatever", we feel sure that you will be willing to do this for
Him. Pick out the job you want and feel called to fill and write
your name in on the sheet. There are jobs enough for everyone to
have one, so be sure you sign up.
Our church Seniors will be having a covered dish social on
Tuesday night, September 20th in the fellowship hall. Fix your
favorite dish and come out and join in the fun and fellowship.
There will be a drawing for door prizes and we will be doing lots
of visiting, singing and socializing. A good time will be had by all.

FWC Officer Arrests Stolen Boat's
A Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) officer arrested a suspect charged with stealing a
commercial fishing vessel out of Madeira Beach Monday.
FWC Lt. Bruce Cooper, patrol supervisor from the Big
Bend Field Office, took Tony Baumgardner, 37, of Madeira Beach,
into custody for grand theft of a vessel.
Cooper had received a call from the U.S. Coast Guard
about the Duchess Too, a 31-foot commercial long line vessel that
had. been stolen in Pinellas County and located grounded off of
Spring Creek in Taylor County. A private boater called the USCG
to tell them he had just picked up the captain off the Duchess Too
and was taking him to the Keaton Beach Marina.
Cooper and deputies with the Taylor Couinty Sheriffs
Office responded to the Keaton Beach Marina to meet the private
vessel and the suspect. However, the boat made it to the marina
prior to the officers' arrival and a search for the suspect began.
Cooper located the suspect and placed him into custody.
Baumigardner was transported the Taylor County Jail. The stolen
vessel, Duchess Too, was also located and secured. The owner was

FWC is conducting the theft investigation.

FWC Officers Deliver Dog Food

To Wildlife Rescue Center
While deployed in Biloxi, Miss., Florida Fish and. Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) law enforcement officers have
taken on the mission of helping survivors recover from Hurricane
But, in addition to helping the people, wildlife and pets are
also receiving assistance from FWC.
Officer Jimmy Jordan, from Alachua County, made a
special run Sept. 6 to the Wildlife Care and Rescue Center to
deliver 500 pounds of dog food to Tammi Carson, a volunteer at
the center.
The center was destroyed during the storm, and the animals
ltad to be moved out to volunteers' homes.
"Right now, I have a red-tailed hawk, three doves and two
crows in small cages in my back yard, a baby duck in the bathtub,
a screech owl in my garage and an assortment of rats, baby
opossums and squirrels in my living room," Carson said. "Many of
our cages were destroyed during the hurricane. I'm just putting
them where I can."
Carson and her two children, Clay, 8, and Chandee, 6, rode
out the storm in Biloxi. Their house made it through the storm, but
the back yard didn't fare as well.
"I can't believe I've lost all my trees. I've been here eight
years and have released so many critters out here. I can't stand to
come out here. This breaks my heart," she said'with a catch in her
"It's amazing what you take for granted. My son has an
iguanaand we can't find vegetables for him. I've been scrounging
through., garbage looking for whatever I can find for him. You just
get so used to going to the store and getting what you need. In a
situation like this, you simply can't," she said.
"But today, some of my prayers were answered. I was still
dozing this morning when I got a phone call from FWC saying
they had dog food for me. I asked if they had any cat food too,
since we need that to feed to some of the animals. After I hung up,
I went back to sleep. I bolted up in bed, grabbed my phone and
made Sure" had ottenr lhai call. I thought I was dreaming. :I
couldn't believe it. We need that food so badly," she said.
'According to Lt. Scott Kihei, patrol supervisor for
Columbia and Baker counties, "We heard about Tammi needing
the food from one of the Mississippi Marine Patrol dispatchers
we're working with on this deployment. We had plenty of dog
food for our K-9s, so we wanted to help."
"Officer Jordan came this morning and dropped off 10 50-
pound bags. Let me tell you, there are some happy dogs in the
neighborhood tonight," Carson said.,
.,In addition to the wildlife she's caring for, Carson has three
dogs and she has been feeding the cats and dogs for those
neighbors who evacuated before the storm.
Jordan also has been taking milk to the Carson household
daily. Doctors have instructed Carson's daughter to consume dairy
products every day. Jordan ensures she has a constant supply.
"We are trying to get together volunteers to round up all
the strays in the area too. We have a big task ahead of us," Carson
said. "The Wildlife Care and Rescue Center is a non-profit
'organization, and we need just about everything from medical
sutipplies to food and cages as well as office materials.
"When the center director and I were going through the
destroyed building, both of us were in tears. But I told her that we
are going to come back from this. We're going to get this centerup
and running again.
Anyone interested in donating to the Wildlife Care and
Rescue Center can send donations to Tammi Carson at P.O. Box'

Dairy Queen to benefit local Children's Miracle Network
Dairy Queen has teamed up with Children's Miracle
Network to encourage customers to wear their hearts on their
sleeves or in this case, their wrists.
Beginning Oct. 1, participating Dairy Queen and DQ Grill &
Chill restaurants nationwide will offer "Kids Helping Kids" glow-
in-the-dark bracelets at $1 each to benefit Children's Miracle
Network, a nationwide organization of hospitals that treats 17
million children a year.
Proceeds from bracelets sold will stay in each community,
benefiting local Children's Miracle Network hospitals. The
bracelets also will be available for purchase through the end of the
year online at www.thedqlab.com, Dairy Queen's interactive Web
site designed just for kids.
"These bracelets will help build awareness of Children's
Miracle Network throughout the country," said Patty Halvorson,
director of national/local promotions for International Dairy
Queen. "We want to bring attention to the needs of these kids. It
is a cause we are very passionate about at Dairy Queen."
Available while supplies last, the bracelets come in five glow-
in-the-dark colors: red, yellow, blue, orange arid green. They are
embossed with the phrase "Kids Helping Kids" and the DQ logo.
The Dairy Queen bracelets are the newest addition to the
fashion craze that began about a year ago. Many children, teens
and adults wear these popular bracelets to support hundreds of
causes from breast cancer research to worker safety, and now
Children's Miracle Network.
Posters and other materials promote the bracelets in
participating Dairy Queen and DQ'Grill and Chill locations. With
the purchase of each bracelet, kids receive a DQ Crew Coin which
can be redeemed for games, T-shirts and other merchandise in the
online- DQ Lab. Each Crew Coin is worth 1,000 points in an
online account.
Dairy Queen has supported Children's Miracle Network since
1984, raising more than $55 million. Each year the network of 170
hospitals provides medical care, life-saving research and
preventative education to help 17 million kids overcome diseases
and injuries of every kind.

Horseshoe Beach Utilities Has Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking Water Standards

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you
have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received on 7/07/05 show that
our system exceeds the standardss, or maximum contaminant levels) (MCL), for Disinfection By products (DBPs), which
includes both Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standards for TTHMs,and HAA5
are 80 and 60 micrograms per liter (ug/L), respectively. The TTHMs and HAA5 were detected at 379 and 181 respectively.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience
problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased
risk of getting cancer.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What happened?
When the Water Treatment Plant adds the disinfectant, it mixes with the organic in the water and creates the Disinfection

What is being done?
The Horseshoe Beach Water Treatment Plant is working with our Engineers & the Department of Environmental
Protection to resolve this issue. We anticipate resolving the problem within the next 12 months.

For more information, please contact C.M. Odom at (352) 498-7225 or Sheila Brown at (352) 498-5234.

Buddy Martin's
Weekly Sports Commentary

Running like the Wynn
GAINESVILLE Hey, maybe Urban
Meyer would make a good newspaper editor,
too, because he lets his players write their own
story lines.
DeShawn Wynn,,
once among the
.. living dead and
buried so deep in
Meyer's doghouse
that you couldn't
find him with a GPS
system and a Kobe
beef steak, bought
a new life on
His banishment
finally over, after sitting out the opener against
Wyoming for unspecified reasons and hearing
his coach call the Gators running game
"pathetic" in last weekend's game, Wynn set
foot on Florida Field the second play Saturday
and wrote himself one sweet story.
DeShawn Wynn is back. The running
game might finally erase that "pathetic" tag
placed on it by its coach, because he averaged
almost seven yards per carry in the first half
and rolled up 84 yards rushing before halftime.
In'the entire game last weekend Florida's net
yardage was just 91 rushing.
So the weapons are intact for Saturday's
mega-game against the No. 6 ranked team in
the AP poll. By the time the dust settles over
the weekend, Florida is liable to jump from
-No. 10 to about No. 8 and Tennessee might be
back up to No. 5.
Meyer knows that without Wynn's
blazing speed, however, the chances of beating
Tennessee were not good. In fact he said last
week that if Florida's running game didn't
improve, "we won't win many more games."
Now No. 21 has a chance to write an
even.better story against the Vols..
'How's this for the headline: "Once
'Gone Like The Wynn, DeShawn Shines
OK., maybe not. But you get the idea.,
Clearly. : Me.er was giving: Wynn "
opportunity for redemption and DeShawn took
it, scoring Florida's first three .touchdowns in
the \\ in over Louisiana Tech. Yes, I realize that
it was Louisiana Tech and not Tennessee, but
when you've been in mothballs for half a year,
, that's pretty good running even against the
I loved Meyer's style, on the Wynn deal.
;He embraced his player after all the
punishment he'd dished out to him for being
o% er- eight. lethargic and disinterested, put his
name on there football and said,; basically,
' "OK. it's your time to prove you want this."
And then Wynn got the ball five straight
carries once reeling off a 50-yarder. Still, it
had to be earned, because Florida stalled on the
I-yard line. Would Meyer kick the field goal,
run the. quarterback sneak, or what?
No, instead Meyer pumped his fist in
the air goalward to make a statement about his
intentions go for it. Chris Leak handed the ball
to Wynn and, just as it looked like the Florida
tailback would be, stopped, he spun out of the
tackle and dragged a defender across the goal
for the score.
A little bond was established right there
between coach player. Meyer is fond of using

the word "faith." Now we're going to find out
if his coach believes in Wynn enough to start
him against Tennessee Saturday.
If so, next Saturday it might be a Wynn-
win situation.
Ouick Jump Starts
1. I'd say Charlie Weis hasn't just awakened
the echoes at Notre Dame he turned them
into insomniacs!
2. It's nice that San Antonio has allowed the
homeless Saints to play four games there, but
what is there about owner Tom Benson that
makes me worried that he's going to exploit
the situation?
3. Chris Leak stabilizes Florida's offense -
and the way the Vols are unsettled at that
position is what makes me feel the Gators
will win "The Showdown in the Swamp" on
Saturday night.
4. Ohio beat Pittsburgh, and I'm beginning to
think Dave Wannstedt is like cartoon character
from Li'I Abner who is always followed by a
black cloud.
5. Loved all those funky formations Saturday
by Urban Meyer, but of all the ones we saw the
least likely to reappear for Tennessee would be
Gavin Dickey at quarterback or would it?
Short Stuff
Of the three NFL openers involving
Florida teams, I see Miami losing to Denver,
Tampa Bay getting beat by Minnesota and
Jacksonville winning over Seattle ... No matter
how many times the Bowdens say it's
"business and not family on the field," a lot of
FSU fans aren't going to accept Bobby's son
Jeff calling plays ... All those coaches over-
tinkering with their quarterbacks should look at
Bowden's situation and be appreciative that
they don't have to pick from two guys who, so
far, haven't proven they can play a lick at FSU.
Nothin'but 'Net
(With a little help from Buddy's Cyberfriends)
Buddy's E-Mail Bag
Buddy: As time was running out, there was
never any doubt in my mind or any other 'Nole
that the Hurricanes were going to score and go
up by four. Bobby got it right: "We stole one
from them!" It kinda makes you wonder if the
defenses were that good or if the quarterback
was just inexperienced. In the last couple, qf
)ears I. think -the. 'Noles are plaN ing to not to
lose rather than to \\ n.

PETE: There is some truth in that, but
maybe that's what college football has come to
for some coaches: Survival.

ALACHUA-The Dixie County Bears
went to Santa Fe with an improved'game plan
as they posted a win over the Raiders 14-7.
This marked the third straight win Outstandin
over the Raiders even though the
Bears were predicted to be the
underdogs. The Bears came out
strong as they kicked off to the
Raider team and sacked the QB on .
the first play. Dixie County took the
game to the ground early on,
utilizing the skills of Robert Yarell,
Rodney Scott and Terrance George -
to pound out yardage and bust
through the Raider defense..
In the closing minutes of the
first quarter, Will Adkins, for the Ro
Bears recovered a fumbled punt and
set the Bears up for the first score.
QB Gary David Pinner utilized Kurt
Skelly to gain the yardage needed to
get close to first down territory.
Pinner then went to Yarell with the
hand off for an 18 yard run for the
TD. Micah Cassidy made the extra
point attempt look easy and the
Bears lead 7-0.

the Santa Fe quarterback with a

advantage. Three minutes left to play Dixie
was forced to punt. The Raiders had a chance
to return the ball but were stopped cold by
Skelly and Yarell on two big tackle plays. Then
Dnsive Players Santa Fe took to the air with a
-W pass which was intercepted by
Gerald McDowell. Pinner used
Skelly, VanAernam and Yarell to
continue the drive for the first
down as the Bears finished the
game in control of the ball.
Coach Wilkerson told the
Advocate that this was the
www-- sweetest win in a long time for
, Dixie County. "We came in this
game as thirteen point underdogs
but, we believed in the team and
Yarell the team believes in themselves."
He praised the team during the
post game huddle telling them
they are getting better and better.
Wilkerson also said "The staff
and I are well pleased, the team
fought hard and had lots of scrap.
We held on to the ball more, the
boys have heart, the secondary
Sgot better and I am proud. We
grew up some tonight." Coach
Wilkerson had this to say about
the Raiders,,"Santa Fe has a heck
George of a team."
Yarell ran unofficially for
S122 yards, with Scott posting 105.
Dixie County threw the ball only
a few times, electing to take the
ball to the running game for 258
rushing yards in 52 attempts.
With only four penalties in the
.., first half and seven in the last
half, divided among both teams,
the Bears are getting better at
managing mistakes. The Bears are
also holding on to the ball more
with just a few turnovers in this
V Scott game. Offensive players Scott,
ensivePlayer Yarell and George were game
standouts, along with defensive
player Corey VanAernam, who
seemed to be everywhere he
needed to be, at the right time.
This had to be one of the
best football games played in the
area. We are certainly looking
forward to another great game
from the Bears. This week the
S Bears play Jefferson County at
home at 7:30 P.M. GO! BIG

.Sweet City
I'll bet that you all have heard of it. Some of you might even
think you have visited there, but maybe not. It's a town famous for
being named after the sweet, delightful candy that is made there.
A town named after the founder of not only the candy, but also the
town itself. And don't kid yourself, it's a real town. It has
schools, stores, a town hall and government officials (well, sort of)
and its own train.
Now the train does carry passengers, even to this very day, but
that's not why it was originally built. No, originally the train was
constructed to carry both the raw goods and finished products back
and forth to the town.
As you might guess, many of the town's people were employed
by the candy company, but of course there were others. The
grocer, the mechanic, the laundry and so on. But the bank, well,
that was owned by the candy company. The big department store,
too, was basically provided for employees with candy money. The
police department, the fire department, street department well,
they were all there because the candy company knew that in order
to run the candy business right, it had to provide those services to
its employees and visitors.
And I'll bet by now you have figured out that I am talking
about Chocolate Town, that famous Pennsylvania spot that has
become so well known for its product. But not necessarily. You
see, Hershey, Pennsylvania isn't all that unique in the world. And
not just for being founded on chocolate. Truth is, Milton Snavely
- Hershey did a fantastic job of building a model city, built around
the profits of his famous candy. But he had a model, several
actually. Some years earlier Cadbury Chocolates had done exactly
the same thing, and before them, Rowntree Chocolates.
Both of those famous confection makers built cities for their
operations and employees too. Now there is no question that
Hershey did it bigger and better than either of his competitors.
Hershey, Pennsylvania stands today as a fabulous model of what
can be done when. corporate profits are used for the good of their
own employees.
But you know what? I wasn't talking about Hershey,
Pennsylvania either. Oh, Iwas talking about the town of Hershey,
a town founded by Mr. Milton Hershey himself, but not in
Pennsylvania. No. You see It's a Little Known Fact that there is
another Hershey, one built by the same man. And at the time it
was built it was approaching the standards of the famous
Pennsylvania city. But this one, well, it ran into a little trouble.
You see, in order to provide a& continuous and uninterrupted
supply of one of Hershey's Chocolate's very needed ingredients,
sugar, Mr. Hershey built another Hershey town, this one in the
sugar capital of the world at that time, complete with all the
trimmings of the original. Even the train, which still runs to this
very day and is one of the most traveled forms of public
transportation in the country.
It's a town built by Milton Hershey and named for hinm, but
because of world events, virtually forgotten by the American
public: the town of Hershey, Cuba!

Old Town Chicks Red Hats

On August 30th, 2005 the Old Town Chicks Red Hats traveled
to High Springs for lunch at Floyd's Restaurant. All were wearing
their official Red Hat Bibs that each Red Hat made themselves and
after dinner all sang the Red Hat song and played their Kazoo's
which is the official Red Hat musical instrument.
Everyone had a good time and when pictures were made one
waiter insisted he get into the picture. I believe they enjoyed
having us as well, oh well, we hope so. Keep an eye on our travels
for next month will be another adventure.

Honoring An American Hero
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on highway 19 north of
Chiefland will be sponsoring a Bar-B-Que dinner fund-raiser for a
local American hero, Peter Herrick, Saturday, October 1st from 11
am-4 pm. Food, music, entertainment and a classic car show will
be available for a $5.00 donation per person.
Peter Herrick,, who lives in Ft. White, was injured in Iraq
during an attack on his Humvee, which left him a quadriplegic on
May 2, 2004. Peter joined the Seabees of the U.S. Navy two
months prior to the 9/11 disaster. After a year of recovery at the
VA hospital in Tampa, Peter is at home with his family; wife
Diana and children, Drew 15, and Shayla 19.
Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will match funds raised at
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Saturday, October 1st. The
Herrick family currently lives in a doublewide mobile home and
needs a new home designed to meet Peter's special needs. In
addition, Peter will need a van with a chair lift for his motorized
wheelchair. The VA system can match up to $50,000, upon
approval, towards a new home and $11,000 towards the cost of a
vehicle. Home healthcare and physical therapy are also needed and
his monthly stipend from the military will only cover about half of
the cost of his needs.
Peter was a self-employed carpenter and has lost his ability to
earn a living and these funds will help ease some of the burden
from his family.
Join us on Saturday, October 1st from 11 am to 4 pm at Good
Shepherd Lutheran Church on Highway 19, north (right next door
to the Dakota Vineyards). You can get a take out dinner if you
wish. If you are unable to attend the fund raiser and would like to
make a tax deductible donation to the Peter Herrick family, please
make checks payable to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and mail
-to : Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, c/o Peter Herrick fund, P.O.
Box 2090, Chiefland, Fl. 32621.
For further information, you may call the church office at (352)

Lori Bartz & son Jacob
Lori Bartz and son Jacob were evacuated from their home in
Biloxi, Mississippi following Hurricane Katrina. On their way to
Cross City they endured many long hours in the long line of traffic
fleeing to Florida. They gathered all they could and loaded their
car, traveling to her daddy Marvin Bartz and grandparents Donnie
and Bell Holifields home in the middle of the night. They were
certainly a welcome sight... Our refugees.
Coupled with the fear of loosing everything, as well as the
safety of their close friends was a cause of great concern. Her
home was located only a block from the Gulf.
She spent day and night on the phone calling home to friends as
they watched the storm on television hoping to see something of
the fate of their home. Good news came that her place was not
destroyed but most of'the others were. Friends informed her that

Her family is so thankful she was spared and could return
home but she has a long way to go and still needs all the help she
can get. She is presently focusing on finding another job. She is
also trying to help others by taking in her neighbors and friends.

Log Cabin

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday September 8th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
As each day passes we wonder
what each day will bring but
we know we all need
fellowship and the need to be
busy. As each member comes
in weekly we never know what
they have done.
We honored Goldie
McHenry on her 91st birthday.
We are so glad of the years she
has been with us to inspire us
with her accomplishments. She
loves to applique, piece and
quilt, it keeps her busy. She
tends to her family of four
daughters and lots of grand,
great grand, and great great
grandchildren. She travels as
much as she can and I have
never seen Goldie sad, as she
is always smiling and happy.
God bless you Goldie.
Our prayers are with Marie
Pappenhager and we look
forward to having her back
with us. Operations can
sometimes lay us low but time
takes care of us so much.
Jarrod and nine boys were
out Tuesday and what a great
day we all had. So, much was
done, the weather was rather
cool and everyone had plenty
to do. We couldn't be where
we are without the almost 800
boys who have worked here
since April 24, 1996.
Lunch was again great with
meatloaf, mash potatoes,
potato salad, biscuits, dump
cake by Hildreth, and
chocolate pie by B.J. She is on
a chocolate kick and so much
more. 15 were present.

Genealogy &

History Society To

The regular meeting of the
Levy County Genealogy and
History Society has been
changed to Sunday, September
25th, to accommodate the
schedule of guest speaker
Myrtice Bailey Scabarozi. Mrs.
Scabarozi of Albuquerque, New
Mexico, will. be returning to
Levy County to attend the
Bronson High School Class
Reunion on Saturday,
September 24th.
She will present a program
about pioneer families in Levy
and surrounding counties. She
has done extensive research and
has amassed a database
containing approximately
45,000 names and kinship,
family trees and family history.
The Levy County native
began her research in 1994 after
her mother, because of failing
health, moved to Albuquerque.
Mrs. Scabarozi eventually had
to quit her job in order to
provide constant care to her
ailing mother. She began to
quiz her mother about family
matters and relationships like
"How was I kin to Aunt Linnie
and why did some of my
cousins call her Granny?"
Another more puzzling
question was about "Grandma
Leslie. She was my mom's
stepmother and the stepchild of
my dad's half sister. Talk
about confusing! I bought the
Family Tree computer program
and began calling people back
in Levy County.
Mrs. Scabarozi states she
was initially interested in her
own family but there was never
a place to stop so she kept
doing research and connecting
families. During extended
visits to Levy County, she
speht countless hours visiting
family, friends and
acquaintances that were able to
provide information about early
settlers. She has also indexed
several area cemeteries.
Mrs. Scabarozi attended
Bronson High School through
the tenth grade before moving
to Chiefland where she
graduated. She attended Lake
City Community College and
Florida State University.
Mrs. Scabarozi, who has
never met a stranger, states she
will bring her computer to the
Genealogy meeting at the Levy
County Quilt Museum and
will share any' information she
has via disk or CD. The
meeting will begin at 2:00

State Representative Will Kendrick was the guest speaker at the
August 31, 2005, Rotary meeting at the Carriage Inn. Representative
Kendrick gave Rotarians and visitors a snapshot of legislative activity
from the last legislative session. He updated the group on the status of the
use of nets in the fishing industry. He discussed the merits and some of
the logistical problems of the Jessica Lunsford Act designed to provide
our children additional protection from sex offenders. He recognized the
vital economic role that the correctional institutions play small counties
such as Dixie County. He praised the county delegation for its active role
in lobbying Tallahassee for the county's needs. Following his talk, he
solicited input from the group regarding local needs and concerns.
In other business, President Anne -Hodges announced that 168
dictionaries had been ordered for Project Dictionary. The Dixie County
Rotary Club will be giving dictionaries all 3rd graders at Old Town and

contributions from Rotarians as well as others within the county. It is
representative of the emphasis that Rotary International has placed on
literacy as a way to improve the economic opportunities for future

comfort children and others after a traffic accident or other calamity.
Additionally, law enforcement officers like to give out stuffed animals to
help emphasize to children that the role of law enforcement is tohelp,
educate, and comfort, not just to arrest and chastise. Lt Burroughs
stressed the need for clean new or like new stuffed animals. Collection
bins have been set up at the following locations: Dixie County High
School, Anderson Elementary, Old Town Elementary, Dixie County
Library, Jerry Hill Insurance, First Baptist Church of Cross City.

This week's Dixie Sighting comes from '
our good neighbor Tommy Cooper. er'i', ^
Seems Tommy and his family came home
from church one Sunday and found one of his |
cows stuck under his truck's tire and wheel-
well. .
Not wanting to cause injury to the poor 1 ** .
thing, Tommy jacked up the back of the truck, '
giving the young bovine plenty of room to get ,
the heck out!
According to Tommy once the cow was free; it took off
running and ran for some time.
I wonder... was the "grass greener" under that wheel-well?
Thanks, Tommy.

By Terri Langford
The 1st Annual Dixie
Wheelin Jamboree was held
out at the Cross City Airport
on Saturday, September 3rd
during the Labor Day weekend
with featured artists, Earl
Thomas Conley, Bryan White
and Mark Chesnutt. If you
weren't there...you missed a
great show!
The event was sponsored
by the Wheelin Sportsman, a
non-profit organization who
provides folks with disabilities
an opportunity to enjoy
outdoor sports like fishing and
hunting. All proceeds went to
the local chapter who sponsors
events like the annual fishing
trip from Shired Island and the
fall turkey shoot.
Opening the show was the
Dixie County High School
JROTC Color Guard with
Janet Osteen singing our
National Anthem, sky-divers,
Paul Poppeghager & Jason
Burgoyne falling from the sky
and a "fly-by" by Jay Boling,
CEO of Dixie Aviation
Services. WOW! Thait as a
chill bumper!
MC for the evening % as the
one and only... Shot Gun
Charlie Walker, will hi.
down-home sense of humor
and country charm.
After the opening it as
non-stop country\
entertainment, i th song a lter
song, after s..ng bringTng
folks to their feet anid dancing
in the aisles. Conlei,, White
and Chestnutt really, came
through for the crowd taking
the music into the night.
The grand finale was a
fireworks show put on by
Clodwalker Bligh of Block
Buster Fireworks.
Many thanks go out to
everyone who helped to bring
this fundraising idea to life. It
took a lot of folks to make it
happen and their efforts are
greatly appreciated. While the
crowd was not quite was hoped
by organizers; they vowed to
make next year's event bigger
and better. See you next year!

Pictured above are the Butler Brothers working on the Dixie County Cultural Center's roof. the most
recent phase completed in the renovation project of the old-Old ritwn School.

By: Terri Langford
The Dixie County Cultural Center, formerly
the old-Old Town Elementary School, continues
to move forward with its renovation .project,
taking the old school back to its glory days.
The Re-roofing Phase was completed over
the summer by the Butler Brothers of Horseshoe
Beach, making a dramatic impact on the look of
the schools' exterior. Money for this phase was
obtained through a grant that was written by
Evonne Cline, Dixie County Historical Society
Reconstruction Chair.
Cline was also able to secure funding for the
next phase; the re-wiring of the 96 year old
building. David Lake of Lake Electric in Old
Town won the bid on the project which will take

five to seven months to complete. Once again
this phase was made possible by grant money.
Cline extended her personal thanks as well
as the thanks of the Historical Society for all the
help they have received from the public during
the restoration process. All the calls, letters and
support shown at the Grant Hearings, have made
it possible to for Dixie to get their share of state
funding earmarked for historical preservation
projects, like that of the Dixie Cultural Center.

If you would like to know more about the
Dixie County Historical Society and how you
can help, please call Ms. Cline at 498-3128 or
leave a message at the Center at 542-0047.
