County totaled a record breaking $486,297,597, an increase of 91 million from 2003. It's 'no secret;
as to the reason behind the increase with development "gone wild" throughout not only Dixie

IU Harriet Miers a good choice?
" As we're all aware by now, Harriet Miers has been named by
President Bush to replace outgoingSupreme Court Justice Sandra
Day O'Connor. She has the somewhat unusual distinction of
bming opposed by liberals and conser-vatives alike, including
prominent members of both major political parties.
;. Conservative columnist Ann Coulter pitched a fit not unlike
tlte one she pitched when John Roberts was picked for a court
Vacancy. (She has since forgiven Roberts.) While other
conservatives tend to be more reserved in their criticisms, the
1lsic issue would seem to be Miers' total lack of judicial
experience. She earned her opportunity as President Bush's White
House Counsel and long-time associate, during which she
acquired scarcely a hint of controversy at the professional level.
Still, she has never presided over a trial.
0. As for judicial experience, conservatives might be reminded
that the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist's first judicial
position was as an associate justice on the Supreme Court. As for
-liberal critics, let us not forget that the late Earl Warren's first
judicial assignment was as Chief Justice. Whichever side of the
political spectrum one favors, one can find a favorite who was not
a-career jurist before being elevated to the Supreme Court.
: While both Warren and Rehnquist had "paper trails" that
0buld have led to conclusions regarding their legal philosophies,
these can sometimes lead to surprises. Case in point:
Eisenhower's appointment of Warren, which led Ike to call it the
biggest (expletive deleted) mistake of his presidency.
Harriet Miers has been criticized for the shallowness of her
resume as a Supreme Court nominee, and it's a reasonable criti-
cism. However, at the same time let us consider Clinton appointee
Iuth Bader Ginsburg. Ms. Ginsburg's resume is second to none.
She graduated at -the head of her class from Columbia Law
School, was appointed as an appellate judge by President Carter in
1,980, and boasts every other technical qualification you could ask
for. However, she also served 7 years as General Counsel of the
ACLU, has a long record as a militant feminist, and has supported
the application of laws from European socialist governments in
filing on cases which are supposed to be judged on the basis of
our very own United States Constitution.
In other words, a law degree from a prestigious university and
13 years on a lower court are no guarantee ofjudicial excellence.
; As for why liberals (of both parties) don't like Harriet Miers,
iiat's not hard to figure. She is on record as saying she was "pro-
choice" before becoming a Christian. What, then, does that infer
ltat she is now? Obviously, some radical who might not recognize
that Roe v. Wade is not merely established law, it is the secular
equivalent of Holy Writ!
As any good liberal knows, that should be an automatic
disqualifier. A pro-life Christian might be all right as a liberal
senator'ss housekeeper, as long as she didn't leave Gideon Bibles
lying about, but spare us yet another one on the Supreme
,ourt--and never mind that the constitutional provision that no
religiouss test can be applied to a candidate for public office
(Article VI, paragraph 3) applies to people of faith as well as
atheists and agnostics.
The way it looks from here, President Bush has probably
decided to "dodge the bullet" by appointing someone with a
limited resume, yet whose views mirror his own. Granted, there
.re more credentialed conservatives available; however, when it
;comes time to take a vote on Sandra Day O'Conner's
replacement, there are also a few wimps among the Senate's
republican majority who might not have the spine to support a
iVandidate with a reputation as a rock-ribbed conservative.
Bush knows this only too well, and perhaps he figures Miers is
,is best shot at avoiding another jurist with the unpredictable
:$emperament of Ms. O'Connor, or worse yet, the flaccid
,perceptions of David Souter, a choice Bush Sr. undoubtedly
regrets as much as Ike regretted appointing Earl Warren.

Letter To The Editor
In a recent letter to the Advocate, C.E. Mills wrote that the
proposed property tax notices had been mailed out to property
owners in Dixie County. The fact is that they were mailed out oh
August 19th. While they do include a schedule of proposed budget
hearings that are held by the taxing authorities, (which does not
include the property appraiser), the notices did include the
following notice stamped in red, on both the outside. of the
envelope and on the tax notice inside:
This concerns your money! No changes can be made to your
property tax assessment after September 13, 2005. Please contact
the Property Appraiser at (352) 498-1210 PRIOR to the above date
if you think that a change is in order.
This gave the property owner from August 22 until September
13 to contact the Property Appraiser about their proposed
appraisal. Mr. or Mrs. Mills says that I was not represented at the
meetings, BUT, I (or my staff) had meetings with taxpayers on a
one-on-one basis for the entire time from August 22, through
September 13th. I did not, however see any indication that C.E.
Mills called or visited the office.
While I appreciate Mr. or Mrs. Mills giving me a bye on the
meeting, the fact is that I had no business there in that I have no
part in establishing tax rates. I appraise property. Tax rates are set
by those constitutional authorities that are empowered to do so.
Mr. or Mrs. Mills had ample time to address his/her concerns but
failed to do so.
The letter from Mr. or 'Mrs. Mills says that coastal property
owners may be about to carry the burden of the proposed budget
increase. I would suggest that he/she do just a slight bit of
research, the end result of which will be that the market value of
all property in Dixie County increased dramatically as is the case
for all of North Florida.
The coastal property owners are there, I assume because they
choose to be. Those with homestead exemption are protected from
the increase in market value per the Florida Constitution, and
those who do not have the homestead protection in Dixie County,
most likely enjoy its protection in the county in which they have
their permanent residence.
We cannot ignore the market. We must (and do) consider the
market value of each parcel of property in Dixie County. However,
when a person comes into a community and pays up to four times
the market value of a property as established at that time, and it
happens many times over, then the market is affected. By the same
token, the person who purchased a one hundred thousand dollar
property in Old Town should not be expected to pay the same tax
as one who pays two hundred fifty thousand dollars without regard
to the location of the properties.
Neither I, nor the other elected officials, or the man on the
street have any control over what happens in the real estate market.
As to the statement that "land with acreage has value too cows or
no cows", that statement is correct and such property is appraised
accordingly. If the writer has a problem with the exemptions that
are allowed by law to those who own cows or timberland, then
that problem should be addressed with the state legislature. We
don't make the laws, we simply work within them, as best we
I suppose the writer (Mills) probably enjoys the benefits of
Homestead Exemption but would deny the farmer, timber grower
and cattle producer the exemption that they are allowed by law.
Finally, as to the options that would generate additional
revenue, that does not come before the property appraiser. The job
of the Property Appraiser is simply to appraise property at its
market value.
This is not a rebuttal to Mr./Mrs. Mills, but an explanation as
to what we do. I am thankful to Mr. and Mrs. Mills for bringing
this need to my attention .
Yours truly

Letter To The Editor
I am pleased that we have an eminent columnist, locally, in |
Dixie County. I am disturbed that he would disparage Cindy I
Sheehan, a woman who gave her only begotten son in the service
of our country. Surely her demand for answers from Mr. Bush as
to how and why we got ourselves into this deadly and expensive
quagmire in Iraq is justified.
Was, it weapons of mass destruction? Hardly. We now know
that the intelligence was cooked by the neo-con's "Office of
Special Plans" for the purpose of manipulating public opinion in
favor of the war.
Was it for Oil? If so, something went horribly awry. Appears
to me like we are paying almost twice as much now as before our
ill advised invasion of Iraq.
Was it because of the terrorism from Iraq and the Al-Qaeda
network? Hardly. Saddam and Osama were bitter enemies. There |
was no connection. In fact the 9/11 terrorists were from our allied
countries, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Though it does appear that our
invasion of Iraq has incensed the Muslim world and that now they
are sprouting all over.
We do know that Saddam was giving housing grants of ten to
twenty five thousand dollars for housing to the homeless families
of the Palestinian freedom fighters who fell in their struggle
against the Israeli occupation of their homeland. Is that why we
attacked Iraq? .
It is important that "we understand the why and the what of
what has put us in this war because the same neo-cons that pushed
for this war against Iraq have lately been pushing for a war against
Iran and Syria.
It would seem to me that the first step in extracting ourselves
from this deadly and expensive quagmire is to get some answers,
to get a thorough understanding of how we got here in the first
place. I am hoping that Mr Prater will be helpful to that end.

Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida Thursday, October 20, 2005

Continued from page 1

During the ceremony Cynthia Dawson and Hattie Johnson lead in the singing of several songs,
"Reach Out' and Touch Somebody's Hand" and "Lean On Me", both songs mirroring the thoughts
and feelings of those in attendance towards a man that paved the way for Dixie youth.
Prince B. Oliver, Sr. was born on May 9, 1912 to Samuel and Marie Oliver. He and his two
sisters, Dorothy Mormon and Anna Laura Oliver were raised in the Jacksonville, Florida area. He
attended Darnell Cookman Elementary School and was a graduate of Stanton High School and
Florida Normal College in St. Augustine.

Sitting are Constance & Prince Oliver, Sr., surrounded by their children, grandchildren and great
grandchildren, some of whom traveled as far away as Chicago, IL.
On May 3, 1936, he and Constance Alzona Taylor would exchange wedding vows. They
' celebrated their 69th anniversary this past May and are as much in love today as when they first met.
That loved has been carried over to their four children, Prince B. Oliver, Jr., Samuel W. Oliver, Sr.,
Cynthia Oliver Carter, and Carmen Oliver Williamson.
All the Oliver children were encouraged to do their very best. Having a good education was a
must. Prince went on to be a doctor, Samuel an art instructor, Cynthia a college educator and
minister and Carmen a teacher.
The Olivers are very proud of their children, but their concern for young people did not end in
their home; they would spend a lifetime educating and teaching children values that would give them
a chance at becoming their very best.
In October of 1933, Mr. Oliver began his career as a teacher at Dixie County's Hines School. In
1940, he became the Principal at Shamrock, where he also taught classes. Two years later, he would
transfer to the Dixie County Training School. The school burned in 1955 and students were sent to
Stockade North of Cross City.
'-From 1956 until 1967, he was both Principal/Teacher at the Oliver Junior-Senior High School,
named in his honor. It was in 1967 that the black students were sent to Dixie County High School.
He would'stay in the Oliver building which was made into an elementary school for just one year
before moving 0to Anderson Elementary School where he served as Assistant Principal until his
retirement in July of 1979.
The Oliver schools were later named the Dixie County Vocational School. This past year a
committee went before the School Board and asked that the vocational school be renamed in Mr.
Oliver's honor to the Prince B. Oliver, Sr. Vocational School. It was an unanimous yes vote and
plans began in preparation for Saturday's event.
A number of people reflected.on their experiences as students of both the Oliver's. In several.
cases, those students would later become colleagues of Mr. Oliver, namely Dolphus Peppers and
Willmonteen Smith. Peppers had a special surprise for Mrs. Oliver, her purse, which she had left
behind when the Oliver's moved back to the Daytona Beach area after their retirement. He also was
able to reunite Samuel Oliver with a few of his toys; an airplane, wagon and scooter!
Arthur Miles, Lloyd Jones, Mary Taylor, Grady Hires and Pastor Escar Thomas would also
reflect on their memories and feelings. While some were comical, and some filled with tales of the
'board of education ", the, all had the same outcome, the tremendous respect the\ have for Mr;.
Oliver. Lloyd Jones said it best; while Mr. Olier'ina) have ruled %itlh a firm hand, he never
embarrassed or belittled a student. He alt a\ s encouraged and always showed compassion. It didn't
matter % Ihat color ) ou were, every child was treated equally.and with love.
His daughter, Cynthia reflected with great emotion her feelings
for her father and the pride that she and her siblings share in his
accomplishments. She, like so many who know this humble man,
thanked God for blessing them with his presence, whether as a
father, educator, colleague or friend.
With that all said, Mr. Bennett and the School Board unveiled a
plaque that bears the name of Prince .B. Oliver, Sr. Vocational
School, a name which is most appropriate and but a small token of
appreciation for what Mr. Oliver gave to the Dixie communities.
Mr. Oliver was visibly moved by the honor bestowed upon him
and he thanked everyone involved. When asked what he thought
'about it, he replied, "I think its just wonderful." Well; .we think
Syou are wonderful Mr. Oliver! God bless.
Many thanks to all who helped make the dedication so
-special,.. Carolyn Kirkland, Elizabeth Dawson,.-Sally Hollis, Hattie "
,:Johnson, Willmonteen Smith, Sharon McCall, Marcell Dawson,
'Sophie Kirkland and Leon "Friday" Rutledge.
Special thanks to Superintendent. Dennis W. Bennett and
'School Board Members Tim Alexander-Chairman, Glenn Osteen-
'Vice Chairman, Patrick Bell, David Keen and Dwayne Rollison for
honoring a true and extraordinary educator.

Continued from page 1
According to Hal Chewning, Jr., Dixie's Property Appraiser, a normal year's growth would bring
in a 5-7% increase but 2004's 23% increase has left folks wide-eyed and mouths opened..
Chewning noted that the increase is not just from development coming into the county, but over
inflated prices for land as well. The average price today for 5 acres is between $45,000 and $60,000
and ten acre plots are selling upwards of $180,000. While we are awe-struck with these figures,
folks from down south see these prices as bargains.
So just how does the property appraiser come up with these figures? Each year property
throughout the county is appraised at market value, of which 85% is taxable. Once the taxable
amount is figured, exemptions (which include homestead, agriculture and disabilities) are subtracted.-
Once the adjustments are made the various taxing agencies (county, school system, SRWMD, Town
of Horseshoe and Town of Cross City) will each be given a portion of the monies and will ultimately
determine the tax rate for the year after they figure their milage rates.
Each agency is given a certain percentage to levy their taxes. The County receives $13 per
$1,000.00 of the taxable value, Dixie District Schools, $8.18 per $1,000.00, Suwannee River Water
Management District, $.50 per $1,000.00, Town of Horseshoe Beach $3.00 per $1,000.00 and Town
of Cross City $5.00 per $1,000.00. The emergency services, fire, roads, and sanitation come out of
the county's portion, however a $180 assessment fee helps to offset,these costs.
Of Dixie County's 704 square miles, 60% can be developed with the remaining owned by the
state or is environmentally sensitive. Realistically only half of Dixie's land will be developed. This
past year we have seen our coastal communities bursting at the seams with development, leaving no
place to go but up. While these new homes and condominiums are on .the high end on the value
scale, the bulk of taxes are still paid by the inlanders. Suwannee residents will pay approximately
16% of the taxes for 2005, while Horseshoe Beach will pay 9.2%, and Jena 8%, leaving 67% to Old
Town and Cross City residents.
It will be interesting to see what 2006 brings.

Behold The Tabernacle Of God
Rev 21:3
"Jerusalem Old and New"
Continued from last week. I, the Day of the Lord, say This "great day
of the Lord" that was ushered at Pentecost brought this new Jerusalem
down; and what a glorious time they had when God filled his new temple
with His presence on that day. ("Now ye are the temple," said Paul.) A
greater day than when He filled the temple that Solomon built for Him!
Yes, the glory of the latter exceeds that of the former.
I, the Day of the Lord, say when Isaiah foretold about it he said, "And
the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and
everlasting joyk upon their heads: and they shall obtain joy and gladness,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." Also when John saw it coming
down he said, "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and
there shallbe no more death (spiritual), neither sorrow, nor crying, neither
;hall there be an', more pain; for the former things are passed. a .'
1. the DR, ol' the Lord, say Paul knew we have come into it for he
ri "n tleret.fre ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow
citizen. Liih the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon
the.f6undation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the
chief comer stone; in whom all the building (city) fitly framed together
gEr.ih into a Holy temple in the Lord; in whom ye also are builded
together for a habitation of God through the Spirit."
1I, the Day of the Lord, say Here is the new city. Abraham looked for
thi, cii, that hath foundations (apostles and prophets) and whose builder is
God \\hai a privilege we. have of living in that which Abraham look for!
Peter aIko knew we have come into it He said, "Ye also, as lively stones,
are buiilt up a spiritual house." Paul said, "ye are the temple of the living
God, as God hath said, I will dwell with them, and walk in them (that is
why' our streets have to be pure gold-no dross) and I will be their God and
they shall be my people."
I, the Day of the Lord, say Again Paul said, "Know ye not that ye are
the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwelleth in you?" Do you see
the new Jerusalem, a spiritual house not made with hands, Christ Himself
coming into our inner man and making it His dwell place, a house not
made with hand? Continued;

New Prospect Baptist News
Sunday brought us another joyous time in church. Bro. Donnie
Lott, of the Keystone Heights area, stood in for Bro. Billy who,
along with Sister Penny, were out of town for his "30th" (in his
words) class reunion. Bro. Donnie did a very fine job of bringing
God's messages from 1st John 2:15-17 and John 14:1-6 in the
morning and evening services, respectively. It was a true blessing
to have Bro. Donnie with us.

Central Baptist Church
God is still in the miracle business. What a great service
yesterday morning with our missionaries from Romania bringing
the main message. Mrs. Amy Chavous opened our service by
singing, My Redeemer Lives and hearts were pierced as she sang
about our Savior Jesus Christ. After announcements Mrs. Melody
Rollins brought the congregation to their feet with a special called,
"Champion of Love" And God truly is the Champion of love.
Then John Fracker, Abbi and Sondu came to give their testimonies
on what God is doing in Romania and what God is leading them to
do in the coming months. Start a school for the children and adults
in Villi Techii to bring the Gypsy people up to an 8th grade level.
We saw several video clips of how God is working in the hearts
of the Gypsy people there in Romania. During their presentation
God moved in the hearts of the congregation. Abbi & Sondu, in
their broken english, expressed "their love for the American people
not because of the financial help that they receive from them to
build churches, minister in new villages and start a school, but for
a love that comes from the heart of the Americans for the Gypsy
people. At the invitation Pastor David Downing asked the
congregation, "how many here this morning will make a
commitment to minister for God in Romania in the coming year
with Abbi & Sondu in the villages of Villi Techii, Tonchu, and
Pintic"? As several in the congregation rose to their feet you could
see tears filling the eyes of many in the congregation.
But if that was not enough, First Baptist Church of Cross City
got to hear Abbi & Sondu that evening in their 7pm service. Pastor
Mike Brown gave one of the most beautiful introductions I have
ever heard. Brother Mike also has a heart for missions. And at the
end of the evening Brother Mike extended an invitation to help
support Hearts of Faith Ministries and again hearts were touched
by the Holy Spirit. The giving went far above generous. Far above
the average love offerings. We could not comprehend what God
was going to do this day through His children here in Cross City.
John Fracker, Abbi, and Sondu and Hearts of Faith Ministries
received the funds this day to hire 5 teachers who will teach five
days a week at the village of Villi Techii for the next two years and
still have enough left to pick up some construction tools they need,
purchase a heater for the church in Tonchu and finish the floor.
Thank you Central Baptist and First Baptist Church of Cross
City. Yes......God is still in the miracle business.

Faith Baptist Church News
What a cool, glorious day we had today. Both services were
great. If you missed either of them, you truly missed a blessing.
We are praying that you will come out next Wednesday night for
your mid-week fill-up and again next Sunday. We have Sunday
School classes for all ages with excellent teachers. Give it a try and
you'll surely enjoy it. The Sunday School hour starts at 9:45 AM
and church at 11:00 AM. The evening services on Sunday have
been changed to 7:00 PM and this is working out much better. The
Wednesday night services are also at 7:00 PM, so try to make it.
Our Fall Festival will be the 29th of October. There will be fire
truck rides for the children and lots of fun and games. The men
will be making hobo stew as usual and the ladies will bring
cornbread, crackers, salads and desserts. Come out and enjoy the
good food and fellowship. We always have a great time.
The 30th of this month will be our 5th Sunday Sing: If you want
to sing, please contact Bro. Kacie Crenshaw so he can be sure and
get you on the list. The talent in our church is just growing and
growing and we want to give everyone a chance to share theirs
with us. So, let him know ahead of time. You can contact him at
church, or call him and leave a message on his recorder (542-9820)
and he'll call you back. As our church continues to grow, we
continue to have more and more talent. We don't want to miss
anyone. We'll have a covered dish luncheon in the fellowship hall
after church on the 5"' Sundai 10( 30 05). Don't .miss the good
food and good fellow. Iup
Our revival is coming up very soon with Bro. Jake Cravey
preaching. Homecoming will be November 6th with a covered dish
luncheon immediately following the preaching hour. In the'
afternoon, Southland Quartet will be blessing our hearts in concert.
Then the following Monday night, November 7th our revival
begins and goes through Thursday PM. Invite a friend who doesn't
go to church or isn't a member anywhere and let them hear the
Word of God. It could change their life forever.
We thank God for the ones we were able to take off the prayer
list today and for His healing hand upon them. God is so good.
Until we meet again, we love you and are praying for you.

The ord Made

"Heaven and Hell"
Continued from last week. I,
the son of man, say who does not
know, or who may not know, that
a man lives after death both
because he's born a man and
created an image of God, and
because the Lord declares it in His
Word? But the real state and
nature of this future life have been
hither to unknown; for it has been
generally believed that man after
death is a mere soul, and the
common idea of soul has been that
it is something like ether, or air,
thus that it is the breath which
goes out of a man's body when he
dies, in which however it is
supposed his vitality resides; but
then this has been conceived to
have neither sight, such as belongs
to the eye, nor hearing, such.'as
belongs to the ear, nor speech,
such as belongs to the mouth;
when yet a man after death is as
much a man as he was before, and
so completely such, that he does
not know but that he is still living
in the former world; for he sees,
hears, and speaks as in the former
world; he walks, runs, and sits, as
in the former world; he lies down,
sleeps, and wakes, as in the former
world; he eats and drinks, as in the
former world; he enjoys delight, as
in the former world; in a word, he
is in all and every respect, a man.
I, the son of man, say from
these circumstances it is evident,
that is not extinction but a
continuation of life, and
consequently that it is only a
passage from one state to another.
That a man after death is as much
a man as he was before, although
he is not then apparent to the eyes
of the material body, may be
concluded from the angels that
appeared to Abraham, Hagar,
Gideon, Daniel, and some of the
prophets, and also from those that
were seen in the Lord's sepulcher,
and afterwards frequently by John,
as he relates in the Revelation: but
it may appear still more evident
from the Lord Himself; for He
proved Himself to be a man both
by the touch, and by eating before
His disciples, and yet He became
invisible 'to their sight. Who can
be' so absurd ,as not to
:.acknow ledge that notwithstanding
His being invisible, He was still a
,nan as before? The reason why
the disciples saw Him was
because their spiritual eyes were at
that time opened, and %%hen this is
the case. the objects of the
spiritual world appear as distinctly
as those of the natural world.
I, the son of man, say there is
this difference between a man'in
"the natural world and a man in the
spiritual world, that the latter is
clothed with a substantial body,
but the former with a material
body, within which is his
substantial body; and a substantial
man sees a substantiate man as
clearly and distinctly as a material
man sees a material man. In the
spiritual world there are countries,
just as in the natural world, and
there are also plains and valleys,
mountains and hills, fountains and
rivers; there are paradises,
gardens, groves, and forests; there
are cities, containing palaces and
houses; there are also writings and
hooks; there are likewise
employment and trading, and
there are gold. sil er. and precious
stones: in a word, there are in the
spiritual %world all things which are
in the natural %world, but in heaven
immeasurably more perfect. Love
you. Continued next %week.

Abundant Life & Living
TRUST: God wants his human family to hear, trust and obey
him. Many of us listen but we don't hear. To hear is to
comprehend. My mother would
say it went in one ear and out the
other, meaning you didn't grasp
what was said to you. We must
hear and obey the divine direction
t of the Holy Spirit. You might say
how will I know if the Holy Spirit
a, is speaking to me?
-,= St. John 10:4 (KJV) Jesus said,
i ^'His own sheep know his voice. All
People are born with antennas on
inside of them that can send and
receive, some insects have them
Lucille Stockton attached to their heads as sensitive
receptives to sense and feel that they may avoid death and hurt.
We refer to ours as extra sensory perception (esp) our divine
conscience, institution or instinct. They are created in us that we
can, hear, sense, feel, trust and obey, that we can shun hurt,
death and evil. When the Holy Spirit speaks to us we must trust
it, and do what ever it tells us to do. Regardless of what we
think, there is no mistakes in divine intuition, the sheep knows
his master's voice. Let's be wiser than the insects; hear and
enjoy the gift of abundant life.

Steinhatchee fishing Report
,By Capt. Brian Smith

If you like red fishing, go now! Work
thq.bank from the mouth of the Steinhatchee
iRiver down to Pepperfish Keys. Use your
favorite lure to catch the first red then switch
out lures with each until you say to yourself "I
can't believe I caught a red fish on this?"
Many people are merely trout fishing in the
skinny water and stumbling into big schools of
red fish. Some of the fish are giving folks an
honesty check..."I can't let this big beautiful
red fish go." Is it worth $500? Splash.
1 *', Bull redfish are cruising off the flats
'iin 20 feet of water. Run two Rapala CD 18's
back and two Clark spoons so you can pick up
redfish, surprise grouper and Spanish mackerel
while trolling.
Trout fishing is said to have cooled
down. Translation: You get to fish a little
longer, to catch the limit. The best action has
been from popping jigs in 2-4 feet of water. Of
Coarse, plugs and shiner tails will catch fish as

Grouper fishing is great. On big'hard
bottom areas you can magically turn a live bait
into a grouper quickly. Frozen baits are
working fine too. Personally, I would take the
time and effort to chunk up a few pink mouth
grunts. Use big chunks because the size of the
grouper is proportional to the size of the pink
you drop down. What depth? Fifty eight feet
and out, are producing the best bite.
Trolling for grouper hasn't been that
effective lately but I expect it to turn on as the
temperature fall and the bait moves south.'
Thanks for reading. Take care of
yourself and your tackle
Capt B
Fishing is much more than fish. Fishing is the
great occasion when we may return to the fine
simplicity of our forefathers.

Redfish Violations Result In More

Than $4,100 In Fines
A routine boat stop Oct. 1 by a Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) law enforcement officer ended
with five Jacksonville residents going home with citations totaling
$4,100 in fines.
Officer Dave Rosado was on water patrol in the St. Johns
River near the Intracoastal Waterway. Sgt. Sam Williams of the
St. .Johns County Sheriffs Office Marine Unit was on board with
At about 3 pm, Rosado and Williams pulled alongside a vessel
that was anchored on the south side of the river as five people on
board.reeled in their lines and prepared to leave the area.
"I asked the boaters if they had caught any fish, and they said
that:there were a few croakers in the cooler. After I was granted
permission to board the vessel, I verified that the fish in the cooler
were croakers," Rosado said.
However, the officer noticed that one of the passengers was
standing in the middle of the boat over a compartment hatch.
~,'The weather conditions %were very windy and there was a
p derate chop in ,the river ,that" made the boat moe about,"
gcosado said.:"The other occupants were sitting on the gunwales of
the.boat. The man on the compartment was having a difficult time
standing up. I asked to look into the compartment, and
permission was granted."
SIn the compartment, which appeared to be some kind of fish
hold,; according to Rosado, was a 39-inch redfish (red drum).
When Rosado asked who had caught the fish, the man who had
been standing on the compartment admitted he had. Rosado asked
if there were any more fish on board, and the man said there were a
"few more" redfish in the bow/cabin area. Rosado opened the bow
door andfound an additional 19 large red drum.
After loading all of the fish onto the FWC patrol boat, Rosado
found that all of the fish ranged from 36 to 39 inches long, which
is much larger than the maximum regulated length of 27 inches.
:The daily recreational bag limit for redfish is one per person per
day with a size limit of not less than 18 inches and not more than
27 inches.
After further investigation, officers discovered that four of the
five people on board had caught the fish and issued citations.
*Benjamin Curry, '59,' was cited for four fish and garnered
a fineof $840.
*Janise L. Campbell, 42, had caught three fish and
received a $630 fine.
*Andrea G. Chevers, 45, was cited for two fish with a.
i $420 fine.
*Willie B. Thornmes, 50, claimed 11 fish and received a
citation that totaled $2.210.
The boat owner. Roosevelt Torrence. 61. also earned a citation
for allowing redfish aboard his boat that were not in compliance
with established bag and size limits.
"'This case is generating quite a bit of interest." Rosado said.
"This is "stealing" the resource from folks who fish and obey the

FWC Says Requiring Seniors To

Pay For Licenses Not An Option
Leaders at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) say they will not recommend requiring seniors
to pay for fishing and hunting licenses.
"Florida's seniors are among the FWC's most valued partners.,
Many of them support our fish and wildlife conservation efforts by
*donating their: time and contributing money by voluntarily
(purchasing licenses," FWC E ecuttie Director Ken Haddad. said.
"We appreciate their efforts anfd their continued support. We have
no intention of placing an undue burden on seniors who can't
afford to pay."
In an effort, to plan proactively for fish and wildlife
conservation programs, FWC began developing a business plan to
ensure the financial stability of its programs for the next five
years. Throughout this process, the agency has been exploring all
possible solutions and has worked with Floridians to get their
perspectives on how to deal with funding shortfalls.
A large portion of FWC's budget comes from user fees,
primarily licenses, permits and specialty license plate fees. One of
the suggestions the FWC received was to consider repealing the,
senior exemption, because federal-matching dollars are, in part,
tied to the number of paid license holders.
"That federal funding is important, but we believe we can come
up with a creative solution that will enable us to capture those
dollars without having to charge seniors directly," Haddad said.
Haddad added that the agency will continue working with
residents to ensure Florida's fish and wildlife conservation
programs remain financially stable. The FWC does not plan to
submit any exemption or fee increase proposals during the 2006
legislative session.

FWC Law Enforcement Report
October 7-13, 2005
This report represents some significant events the FWC handled
over the past week; however, it does not include all actions taken by the
Division of Law Enforcement.

Oct. 6, at approximately 2 a.m., Officer Tim Cusack noticed a
suspicious vehicle pulled into a dirt access road to Goethe Wildlife
Management Area on CR 336. Cusack turned around to investigate
when the vehicle pulled out of the WMA road and passed him on
CR 336. Cusack turned around again and noticed a large bag being
thrown from the vehicle as he attempted to overtake the vehicle.
The vehicle, a black Dodge truck, sped up to approximately 90
mph. Cusack then initiated his blue lights to affect a traffic stop.
The truck stopped about eight tenths of a mile later. Three suspects
were found in the truck. Further investigation by Officers Sam
Dishmah and Cusack revealed a large tank of anhydrous ammonia
in the discarded bag and the precursors to the making of
methamphetamines in the truck. A small amount 'qf
methamphetamines was also found in the truck. FDLE and Levy
County Sheriffs Drug Task Force was called to assist in the
investigation. The tank of anhydrous ammonia was found to be
leaking ammonia on the side of CR 336, which was shut down
until the Williston and Rainbow Springs fire departments arrived
on scene to bleed off the tank and decontaminate the area and
suspects. A search of the surrounding forest revealed a large pickle
jar containing chemicals used in the production of
methamphetamines. The jar was found at 'the WMA road used by
the suspects. All three suspects were arrested resulting in 15
felony, 4 misdemeanor and 3 warning charges. The felony charges
include possession of methamphetamines, possession of anhydrous
ammonia in an unapproved container, possession of listed
chemicals, manufacture of methamphetamines and tampering with

Oct. 9, Officer Matt Reynolds responded to a complaint of dogs
running deer on private property without permission. When
Reynolds arrived at the property, the owner of the property had
already caught the dogs and he immediately turned the dogs over
to Reynolds. The landowner gave Reynolds an affidavit stating the
dogs were running deer. In a short time, Reynolds located the
owner of the dogs and the subject was issued a citation for
violation of the hunter responsibility rule.
Oct. 12, Officers Reynolds and Billy Giles worked a night
hurinting detail in Steinhatchee Falls WMA. Over the last several

weeks, the officers have been seeing several big bucks feed in new
clear-cuts off of the highway. During their surveillance of the
clear-cuts, they watched a truck shine the clear-cuts for over 20
minutes and allowed the truck to leave the area without making a
stop. After approximately 30 minutes, the same truck returned, and
shot at a deer approximately 100 yards away from their
position. The officers immediately initiated a stop, and during the
search, but was unable to locate a firearm. The subject was being
uncooperative so the officers called K-9 Officer Leonard Bailey
and his dog Buddy to do a search of the area. After a very short
period of time, Buddy located a .223 rifle in the thick brush
adjacent to the subject's vehicle. The officers also located a spent
.223 shell. After, the above evidence was located, the subject
confessed to shooting at a deer and was cited for attempting to take
deer with gun and light, possession of a gun in a closed WMA, arid
interference, with. a Fish and Wildlife Officer during an
investigation. ,, ,. ;

The Bears rallied again in
the fourth quarter when George

The All Time Dumbest Lawsuit
You've heard some crazy ones before but this is hands down,
the dumbest lawsuit of all time! A Romanian prisoner is suing God
for failing to save him from the Devil. We're not kidding. The
inmate, identified only as Pavel M., released an official complaint
which reads, "I, Pavel M, currently serving a 20 years sentence for
murder, request legal action against God, resident in Heaven, and
represented here by the Romanian Orthodox Church, for
committing the following crimes: cheating, concealment, abuse
against people's interest, taking bribe and traffic of influence."
Pavel is arguing that his baptism was-a contract between him
and God who was supposed to keep the Devil away and keep him
out of trouble. Prosecutors said the, case will most likely be
dropped in that they-are unable to subpoena God to court.

No Love Lost
There was certainly no love lost between these two. Actually,
they hated each other. The reasons are almost as long as your arm,
but that's not our story here today. The director of the FBI, J Edgar
Hoover, hated the American ambassador to England. He didn't like
his style, his manner or his reputation for being a hard-nosed, ruthless
businessman. But most important, the director didn't like the man's
politics. And being an ambassador is a very political job, you know.
So J. Edgar decided to do what he could to defeat the man and his
In the years since his death, we know that the former director
- quite often used his power and the resources of the FBI to spy,
intimidate and even blackmail certain people he didn't like or trust.
And our ambassador to England was one of them. Not only that, but
the ambassador had a son who was an ensign in the Navy, assigned to
Naval intelligence at the time. And he really didn't want people like
that, involved in such secret and important work within the
The boy got the cushy Washington post mostly because he was
the ambassador's son, and that kind of stuck in Hoover's craw a bit
too. So the director, well, he set out to do something about it. One
thing he found out was that the young handsome Navy man was
having something of an affair with a beauty queen from Denmark
named Inga Arvad.
It was bad enough that the boy got his job because he was the
I ambassador's son, but now he was cavorting with a foreign national -
Sand one that Hoover decided was a spy. Why was she a spy? Well,
because she had once actually met Adolf Hitler when she was back in
Europe not that unusual for a beauty queen and an official
representative of her country. It was innocent enough, all right, but
it was enough to set Hoover in action. He had found the
ambassador's Achilles heel and he was going to exploit it.
He went to the ambassador and told him about the affair his son
was having and how he was going to use it to ruin him. Nice, huh?
But true! So the ambassador did what he could, considering the
times and the situation. He got his son transferred from his cushy
| Washington, D.C. job to something a bit further from the Danish
beauty queen.
And if you didn't know, that's exactly how it happened. But it
sure didn't turn out the way Hoover intended it to. Nope. You see,
once the young man left Washington, he became something of a war
hero, and that action was very instrumental in getting him elected as

4 Pets Sake News
Because of the high expenses we have to absorb to keep our
programs operating, we are forced to reduce our surgeries to 12 a
month. At this time we have a 3-4 week waiting list and we can do
only one pet per household. Realizing we can no longer maintain
the pace we had previously kept, it was suggested that cuts be
made to off set the cost of increases that all of our projects have
endured. Hopefully the economy will improve soon.
Auction time is fast approaching. It is set for Sat., January 14th
and it will be held in Alachua County. Presently we are waiting for
the approval of the use of the building. 4 Pets Sake does not have a
thrift store so if you care to donate please contact us from the
information at the end of this article. There are some beautiful
antique, collectibles, new, and used items in excellent condition
that are arriving for this event. We are looking to have a fun time.
Excessive grooming is sometimes caused, when a cat is
chronically stressed and this becomes a form of dispelling anxiety.
Aging cats sometimes need the assistance of their care givers and
should be brushed preferably when the feline is relaxed. This gives
you the opportunity to look for fleas, lumps, abrasions, and
irritations. If anything is truly abnormal, take it to a veterinarian.
Have a enjoyable week. Until next time be happy just for the
love of them. You can.contact us at 386-935-0975 or 866-727-

the past eight years. A very special group of girls from the Dixie
County High School Flag Corp had the pleasure of participating in

The young ladies that attended the event and rode oh the float

the parade on television, you could see by the girls' energetic
antics and cheering that fun was definitely not lacking with these

DCHS Students On The Road To

Success With "Read 180"

By Terri Langford Staff Writer
A recent survey showed that only 34 percent
of our nation's twelfth graders meet the standard
.of reading proficiency for their grade level,
leaving them unprepared for the job force.
These statistics are alarming and have sent red
flags up to educators. One of the main goals of
the Dixie District School System is to make sure
that Dixie graduates are not part of the 66
percent of unprepared students, but of the 34
percent prepared to reach their goals.
As part of their strategy to help students
reach their maximum potential, DCHS has
incorporated the Read 180 program into their
:curriculum. Read 180 is an intensive leading
intervention program that identifies and
addresses individual needs of students that need
help %with their reading, writing and %ocabulan
skills. If followed through. Read IS). has been

proven to double, if not triple the gains achieved '
by students enrolled in the program.
Students work with individualized
instructional software that is customized for
their specific needs. In addition they work from
textbooks with groups and with the instructor.
George Anderson is the Instructor at DCHS and
stated that he has been amazed at the progress
that his students have achieved in the first six
weeks of the school year.
Success is ultimately up to each student and
how much they put into the program., Anderson
has asked the Advocate to showcase a "Student
of the Week" in each of his three Read 180
classes. Students receiving this recognition are
chosen because of their commitment and hard
w ork towards success.

These weeks' "Students of the Week" are (pictured left to right) ,1 Period Christy Brannin, 2'" Period

Suwannee WTP Has Committed A Monitoring Violation of Florida Drinking Water Rules

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

Community water systems that exceed the maximum contaminant level are required to monitor quarterly for Disinfection
Byproducts which includes Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids. We failed to take samples during the second quarter of
2005 and therefore are in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements.

What should I do?

Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may
experience problems with the liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have 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.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to nitrate and nitrite can choose alternative sources of
water f6r ingestion.

What does this mean?

This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What happened? What is being done?

Our Water Treatment Plant Operator died suddenly in a tragic accident and the samples were misplaced,
however, samples are up to date at this time. This is not uncommon in water treatment plants.and occurs in other city
systems. Bidding will start on our new water,treatment plan in January 2006.

Please share this information with all other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this
notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting
this notice in a public place of distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Suwarinee Water & Sewer District..

Every fall for the past
seventeen years the
communities of Jena and
Steinhatchee have participated
in the Florida Coastal Cleanup
(part of the International
Coastal Cleanup) on the third
weekend in September. Last
year because of the September
(Frances) and October (Jeanne)
hurricanes, the cleanup was
held in early November.' It was
a great success with
Steinhatchee School students
and teachers participating,
Fiddler's Restaurant providing
tee shirts and volunteers fixing
lunch for workers. Everyone
who participated agreed that the
cooler weather was a huge
bonus. Volunteers collected
roadside litter, river debris and
marsh trash on a brisk day
instead of a September
scorcher. It was a no-brainer to
continue the later tradition in
,2005 .
Mark you calendars ,for
October 29th. Adult
volunteers will gather at the
Steinhatchee Community
Center at 8:00 A.M. Students
will gather at 9:00 A.M.
The Steinhatchee Garden
Club, the Beta Sigma Phi's
'and the Steinhatchee AARP are
being asked to clean, their
portion of State Road 51 as
*one of their four annual "Keep
Florida Beautiful" roadside
cleanup days.
Volunteers are asked to
wear sturdy shoes, hats and
gloves. Trash bags will be
provided. Anyone with a
small boat is urged to
participate since there are areas
on the river inaccessible by
land that really need cleaning.
Boaters can come by the
Community Center and pick
up bags anytime after 8 A.M.
Boaters can drop their bags at
participating marinas.
The Steinhatchee
Community Projects Board,
Inc. has graciously agreed to
provide lunch for the
volunteers as well as fantastic
tee shirts!
Marine debris is a pervasive
problem that threatens ocean
health. Yet all marine debris
can be traced back to a single
source people. Almost
everything that is tossed out of
a car window eventually finds
its way to the river. This is
one reason road cleanup is a
huge part of coastal cleanup.
Steinhatchee has filled a
dumpster with debris almost
every year it has held the
event. A few years the
dumpster was only three
quarters full...still a great day
for as few as nine volunteers
that year. We hope to have at
least fifty volunteers this year.
The river and the Gulf of
Mexico need our tender loving
care. Please put the date on
your calendar and come out for
a fun and productive day on the
river. Gentlemen, you will be
home for the football kickoff!
See you there.

the Federal Emergen
Management Agency hereby giv
final notice under Executive Orc
#11988, Floodplain Manageme
Notice is given for the follow

Project Descriptions: T
projects consist of work on put
beaches located throughout t
State of Florida. Work include
but is not limited to, replacement
boardwalks; repairs to amenit
such as lifeguard station
pavilions, bath houses, park
lots, and restroom facilities; repa
to dune crossovers; repairs
beach access ramps; sa
replenishment; repairs
replacements of public pie
repairs or replacements of fish
piers; and the repair
replacement of beach berry
These activities will occur on sta
county, or municipally owned pul
beaches located throughout

Program: Public As.sistan
FEMA Disasters DR-1539-FL, D
1545-FL, DR-1551-FL, DR-15i
FL, DR-1595-FL, DR-1602-FL, a
any other as yet undeclai
Presidential disaster declarat
that may occur during the 20
hurricane season.

Statement of Why Action
Located In Floodplain: Thi
projects involve the repair
recreational facilities damage
during the 2004 and 20
hurricane season. The recreation
facilities are dependent on oce

access, and therefore located
within mapped 100-year

Alternatives Considered: In all

cases, the alternatives to be
considered have been and will be:
1) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions. 2) Repair to pre-
disaster conditions with mitigation
to minimize impacts during future
events. 3) No action alternative.

Applicability of State/Local
Floodplain Standards: Funding
will be conditional upon the
projects' 'conformity with all
applicable state and local
floodplain standards, the project's
obtaining any necessary U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers permits, and
the project complying with any
terms and conditions placed by
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Affects to the Floodplain and
Mitigation: The proposed actions
may have short-term impacts to the
floodplain during construction.
These impacts would consist of
short-term water quality impacts.
Long term impacts are expected to
be beneficial for various reasons.
The projects will. improve
recreational facilities; beach berms
will provide protection to improved
property from five-year storms;
beach re-nourishment can provide
nesting for threatened or
endangered sea turtles; beach
berms may provide habitat for
endangered beach mouse.
Additionally, the repair of public
beaches preserves open space
within the floodplain, which
provides desirable values. In all
cases, work that has the potential
to disturb sand will comply with
terms and conditions placed upon it
by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service in order to prevent impacts
to threatened or endangered
turtles, birds, and beach mice. In
some cases, mitigation against
damage during future events will
be provided by repairing or
replacing structures with materials
that give additional protection.

We will also be encouraging local businesses and the other schools to participate as well.
Red Ribbon Week will be announced in the Advocate and through flyers, but please help us
spread the word! Businesses should display their drug free message throughout the week and
on into homecoming week to show their spirit and support.
.The classroom competition will be between each DCHS 2" period class.
Winners? There will be two categories.... class room and department/office. Each student
in the winning 2nd period class will receive a ticket good for $2 worth of Bear Necessities
