Boyd Secures Funding

For Shired Island Road


'c,.~ *t'



District Schools Receive Grade From State Positive
Gains Made In All Schools




This four-word sign, pictured above, is definitely telling the truth about the Shired Island Road.
The photoe on the right shows only a small portion of just how bad the road really is from years
and years of being patched and patched over again. The condition of the road shown here is the
general rule for the road, not the exception.

Congressman Allen Boyd (D-North
Florida), a member of the House Appropriations
Committee, today voted in favor of the
Transportation, Treasury, Housing and Urban
Development Appropriations Act. (HR 5576).
In this legislation, Congressman Boyd secured
$750,000 for the re-pavement of County Road
357 South, commonly known as Shired Island
This funding will re-pave Shired Island
Road, the only major north-south road in the
area and the primary evacuation route for the
people of Dixie Counhty's coastal community.
Additionally,. the re-pavement project will
provide better access to the Lower Suwannee
National \k'lldlife Refuge, the Shired Island
Count', Park, and the Federal Boat Ramp at
Shired Island.

"This funding is great news for the people
of Dixie County," Congressman Boyd said.
"The re-pavement of Shired Island Road will
provide a safer and more reliable transportation
network, improved access to the county park,
and a better quality of life for area residents.
Both the people of Dixie County and visitors to
the community will benefit from this funding."

In speaking with County Coordinator,
Arthur Bellot on Tuesday afternoon, Bellot
stated, The county is pleased to get partial
fundingg for this much needed project." Bellot
also said that he expects the total cost to be in
the neighborhood of just over $1 million dollars
to repair and repave the approximately 11 mile
stretch of roadway.

Last week the Dixie received their school grades from the state and overall are encouraged by the
2006 FCAT scores. All schools had areas of positive gains and two schools moved at least one level
to a higher grade. Ruth Rains Middle School led the way by jumping two levels to an A school and
Dixie County High School moved to a C. Anderson sustained last year's B, but elevated the total
school score to within 10 points of an A. Although Old Town Elementary dropped from last year,
there were areas of positive gain and they were only 4 points from a B.
"Credit really goes to our administrative staff and the teachers," stated Dennis W. Bennett,
Superintendent of Schools. "Our emphasis for the 2005-2006 school year was on student
achievement." "But our staff was up to the challenge and moved scores in every level," Bennett
added. See "ABC-C" page 5

-.op picture shows how many fish can be affected by low oxygen levels in
:tzie water. Alberto's rains were especially hard on the bottom dwellers
like the catfish shown in the bottom picture.
By Terri Langford Staff Writer
After receiving several calls concerning large amounts of dead
fish and mussels in the Sutannee River, the Advocate called the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) to find out the cause
:Of the deaths. Rumors had been circulating that waste
-Containments had been dumped in the river upstream from Hinton
tendingg. A spokesman from the FWC stated that was not the case
-'id assured us that it was a natural occurrence due to Tropical
:form Alberto.
-:.FWC biologists have been monitoring the situation and
'explained that the fish, mainly bottom dwellers, are actually dying
from a depletion of oxygen caused from the silt being stirred up
from the heavy rains brought by Alberto. The smell, besides the
dead fish, is from the decaying plant material that was lying on the
bottom of the river bed as well as that brought from the swamps as
they overflowed and ran into the river.
Live fish caught can still be eaten, but they may have an odor
,associated with the plant matter.
Biologists are predicting that the situation will clear within the
next few weeks.

Steinhatchee School earned a school grade of "A" under the Governor's A++ Plan for the 2005-
06 school year. After much diligent effort by the students, parents and school staff, the school came
up two letter grades from the 2004-05 school year. Plans are underway as the staff anticipates a time
in the near future when everyone can get together to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Thanks to all stakeholders who have encouraged and supported the school effort to ensure
academic success for all kids at Steinhatchee!

Ann is a baaaaad girl!
Acerbic political columnist Ann Coulter has come up with yet
another best-selling book entitled, Godless, subtitled, The Church'
:of Liberalism. The jacket even has a line which reads, "#1 New
PYork Times bestselling author."
: That must really infuriate the people who run that newspaper.
,When they hired William Safire as a "token conservative" back in
fthe 1970s, nobody but the janitor would speak to him for several
:weeks simply because he had been a speech writer for Richard
Z: Things started looking glum back in the early 1990s when Rush
:Limbaugh hit number one with, The Way Things Ought To Be, and
since then the Times has repeatedly had to acknowledge that there
actually are literate conservatives out there, and that includes a
'whole bunch of people who buy their books.
Zi Ann's new book accuses liberals of having their own religion,
this despite the fact that a great many of them want to keep every
:int of traditional religion out of the public view. If you're
interested, the book retails for $27.95, Wal-Mart has it for $19.34,
mand if you're the patient sort, best-sellers get cheaper in a hurry as
soon as they're no longer best-sellers.
2 What makes Ann a baaaaad girl, at least to her critics and even
-a smattering of her friends, is how her book treats four women
whose husbands were among the 3,000 who died when the
,terrorists hit the Twin Towers in New York City on 9/11. She
,actually accused them of exploiting their victim status for personal
Well, they have become celebrities of sorts. They've been com-
:pensated far more generously than the widows of our military
,casualties in this war or any other ever have. They have been
.politically active, agitating for the establishment of the "9/11
:Commission," and campaigning on behalf of John Kerry's failed
-presidential bid in 2004.
It seems significant that the families of the remaining 2,996
:9/11 victims have adjusted to the unpleasant realities of what
:happened, and have quit looking around for sympathy and someone
,-to blame.
; What we're looking at here is a circumstance strikingly similar
:to that of Cindy Sheehan, one of whose sons was among some
:2,500 military personnel killed thus far in the War on Terror.
Not to diminish the loss of a family member, but let us not lose'
:sight of the fact that American military personnel have been
.involved in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan for longer than we
Were involved in World War II; and yet the latter conflict cost the
. lives of nearly a half-million American servicemen. We lost more
.:troops on "D-Day" (June 6, 1944) than we have since 9/11.
The idea that being .a victim makes you immune from criticism
:when you say or do something stupid-and that includes exploiting
Sand wallowing in your victim status-just won't hold up.
Ann Coulter was a lot more caustic in her remarks about the
,four 9/11: widows than most commentators would have been,
1 however she was basically on target, and that ought to count for
, something unless being right isn't as important as being politically

Letter To The Editor
The latest SRWMD MFL (Minimum Flow Level) Meeting was not
held in favorable "Florida Sunshine Law" conditions, but the Governing
Board did clearly express their views of harm and significant harm.
The SRWMD Executive Director has stated that the first ever MFLs
"are to protect the Suwannee River from significant harm and significant
harm is to be defined by the board of governors when indicated by the
permitting process. Although the new MFLs are 10% below the historical
average no significant harm is expected."
With no written definitions to guide us in determining the difference
between ordinary harm and significant harm to the river in the view of the
SRWMD, we are not left helpless for we have their example to guide us.
Although the meeting was scheduled before TS Alberto was born,
Alberto made landfall at the mouth of the Suwannee River while the
meeting got started in Branford at the Elementary School.
Levy County residents had no excuse not to attend since most of them
were on the road anyway due to the mandatory evacuation order for
anyone in the Suwannee River Basin, south of Hwy 19 to the mouth of the
The balance of the residents of the Suwannee River Basin were told to
stay home by emergency management officials in all the counties in the
SRWMD, which they did. While some were sending emails to each other
commenting on the number of mullet jumping out of the rising water in
their yards and in spite of TS Alberto, overwhelming common sense and
the many public requests for a meeting postponement, the meeting was
The next day while Alberto was blowing through Live Oak and
tornados were touching down, the SRWMD Governing Board held
another meeting with no fear of "significant harm", although 3 of its
members decided to heed the warning of emergency officials and stayed
home like many of the private citizens who called SRWMD to complain
that they could not attend because of the severe storm warnings.
Several groups had planned to attend, in order to argue for changes in
the Alachua Florida Wal-Mart permit, were not able to make it to the
meeting. Most were not going to oppose the Wal-Mart store, but instead
were going to argue in favor of additional runoff structures to prevent
pollution entering the Mill Creek Sink/Hornsby Spring Cave system that is
located directly beneath portions of the property.
SRWMD adamantly refused to reschedule either meeting and in doing
so provides us with their distinct views of "harm and significant harm". It
appears that any ecological damage occurring because of miscalculated
MFLs must have the impact of a hurricane on the Suwannee River Basin
before the SRWMD will consider it significant.
If you are one of the individuals who were not able to attend either
meeting due to the storm, you may want to follow up on this. It is my
belief that this meeting was held "out of the sunshine" and should be
repeated so that the public will have an opportunity to attend in safety.
Rex Newman at the Governor's Office suggested that the public
contact him with this concern and that the State Attorney General's office
also be contacted.

Letter To The Editor
The Zion Factor
As regards Columnist Prater's aspersions against Michael
Moore, Cindy Sheehan, The Dixie Chicks and Congressman
Murtha, please allow me to cast my lot with these good Americang.
As to our soldiers charged with murder, they will be exonerated if
only they can get a jury of their peers.
By that, I mean a jury of soldiers who have traveled those
mean streets of Iraq and have faced the instant death or maiming of
the roadside bombs. They will be exonerated if the blame is placed
where it really and most appropriately lies. On the shoulders of the
old men who sent these young men into this unwinnable war.
When the other side does not abide by the rules of civilized
warfare, we who do are handicapped. It is unrealistic to expect our
troops to face death and maiming daily and not to respond in kind.'
Mr. Prater would serve his readers well if he would use hii
three digit IQ to educate his readers about how a foolish President
fell under the sway of AIPAC and the Neocons. This is a group
which is loyal not to America but to Israel.
John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, esteemed and loyal
Americans of the Harvard JFK School of Government are the
authors of a paper which says that AIPAC, the Jewish Lobby is so
influential that they have made Israel's interests take precedence
over America's interests in foreign policy.
This is a matter of vital importance because far from falling
from power, this group is consolidating its power. They now have
Iran in their sites because it is a threat to Israel, not to the United
States, and they fully intend to use the full power of the United
States, political, economic and military to attain their goal of
defanging Iran.
America and Israel are the most hated countries in the world
today. Why? Most Americans are apolitical. We sit back and let
someone else do our thinking for us and run our country to theit
own ends, but we unavoidably will and are paying the price for out
I am well aware that this epistle will be poorly received by
most. To that response I will think that your opinion has beeri
melded by the mainstream media which is not neutral and is not
unbiased. However, there are bounds of political correctness
beyond which I must not trespass. I rest.

Night Vidalia Onions

1 large Vidalia Onion
per person
1 beef bouillon cube
per onion
1 tablespoon butter
per onion
Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 de-
grees. Trim a slice from the
top of each onion, and peel
the onion without cutting
off the root end. With a
potato peeler, cut a small
cone-shaped section from

the center of the onion.
Cut the onion into quar-
ters from the top down,
stopping within a half-inch
of the root end. Place a
bouillon cube in the cen-
ter, slip slivers of butter in
between the sections, and
sprinkle with pepper. Wrap,
each onionion in a double
thickness of heavy-duty
foil and bake in preheated
oven for about 45 minutes.
Or, prepare a fire in char-
coal grill and place the foil-
wrapped onions directly
onto the hot coals and
cook for 45 minutes, turn-

ing every so often. Serve
in individual bowls
because they produce a lot
of broth, which tastes like

According to Garry Durham- District Curriculum Administrator, schools are measured on the following criteria: percentage of
eligible students in grades 3-10 who score a level 3 or above (level range 1-5) in reading and math, number of students in grades 4, 8,
and 10 who scores a 3.5 or above (level range 0-6) in writing, number of students in grades 4-10 who make a year's growth as measured
by a state formula in reading and math, and lastly the percentage of the lowest 25% readers in the school who make a year's worth of
growth as measured by the state. This last category is especially important because if this percentage falls below 50% for two
consecutive years, then the school is dropped a letter grade. The above six areas are totaled and based on that total, a school grade is
assigned (410+-A; 380-409,B; 320-370-C; 319-280-D; below 280-F).
The results for this year and last year are as follows:

Old Town led the district in percentage of 3+ students in reading (78) and writing (92), Dixie County High School had the top math
3+ (63), Anderson had the highest percentage of bottom 25% reading students making gains (89), and Ruth Rains made gains in all six
areas and led the district in reading growth (69) and math growth (76).
"We are extremely proud of our students and staff for the effort and success on this year's FCAT testing," stated Durham. "A lot of
credit goes to our principals for their leadership," he added.
The 2006-2007 school year will mark the first year that science will be added to the FCAT and math scores for the bottom 25% will
"be added to the scoring process. "We are already looking at 2007," stated Bennett. "This past year we were able to use technology to
motivate students and one-on-one sessions helped to pinpoint students' weak areas," Bennett said. "This was a real team effort by all
the schools and each principal has stated they are ready for the challenge once again for 2006-2007," Bennett added.

Charlie Burnett brought in
the following "Letter to the
Editor" written by her father
Henry R. "Red" Walker in
1943. She found it among a
" number of photos and
mementos of her parents and
.thought we might like to share
it with you all. By the way,
Rked's birthday was June 14,
Nth Africa.
S July 11, 1943
Dear Editor,
I don't know just how to,
start this letter. About a month
..ago I received the DIXIE
believe e me, I really enjoyed it.
I read it from scratch to finish.
:In fact I almost read all the
writing off of it.
I hadn't received any more
until today. To tell the truth it
made me feel a 100 per cent
better. You would be surprised
how interested the old DIXIE
? boys are in Cross City and its
: people. I have been away for
some 'time. But, mother is still
'"there so you see my heart is
: there also.
I will repeat it is really nice
' to get the DIXIE COUNTY
ADVOCATE. And, see that
my friends are still around and
Doing fine. How's about a little
' news about North Africa, and
, possibly a word or two about
Myself. O.K.? Well first as we
all know this is a might strange
: country. Believe you me I have
6 esen some strange sights. I
Suppose most of you have
Heard of the famous mountain
609? Well I was on it the other
day. In deed I saw some

interesting things. Of course I
can't mention any of them, but;
you can bet your brass buttons

they were worth seeing.
The weather is mot
unbearable some times. I seen
it 122 in the shade. Don't get
me wrong, I'm not griping or
complaining. The uncomfort is
worth the adventures and
experiences. I have visited
most of the interesting cities.
"Oran, Casablanca, Tunis."
I'm hoping to visit Algiers
I'm in the medical corp, so
you see I'm not a fighting man.
My turn comes after they get
through fighting. You can bet
your brother, father, son or
who ever you have here, gets
the best medical care medical
science has provided.
Incidentally, I have ran into
quite a few of the Shamrock
and Cross City boys. They are
doing fine.
Henry R. Walker
Better known as RED
By the Editor: Red we very
much appreciated your letter
and hope to hear from you
again. And to those that do not
recall who Red is, he is the son
of Mrs. Nora Walker, here in
Cross City.
We are doing our best to
get the ADVOCATE to every
boy in the services that has
gone from Dixie County.
In~most of the counties of
the state the County
Commissioners and County
Officials or Patriotic citizens
made it their businesses to see
that every boy in the services
of his Country gets his home

When we started the Log
Cabin Quilters in October
1983, we have seen many
changes but quilting has made
a great comeback. Clubs and
Guilds have started, machine
quilting has almost taken over
but we keep hand quilting as
we still say, "A quilt is only a
quilt if it is hand quilted". If it
is done on a machine it is a
Our Gazebo is almost
done; at least the building is all
done but the roof. We will put
benches inside, a step outside
and then we can enjoy it.
Its canning and freezing
time and there is nothing better
than fresh vegetables and fruit,
Blueberries are in now, pears
are about to get big, figs are
doing great and if you haven't
eaten a fresh tomato, ripe on
the bush, you don't know
what's good.
Today was pasta day,

Did You Know?

The next time your girlfriend complains about your snoring,
pay attention. A new study found that snoring can actually wreck
your relationship. Researchers in Chicago studied ten married
couples in which the husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea, :a
condition related to snoring. All that log sawing can wake you up
during the night, not to mention keep your girl awake. Both of you
wake up feeling grumpy and sleep deprived, and that's when the
fun begins. "The lack of sleep for both partners puts a strain on the
marriage and creates a hostile and tense situation," said Rosalind
Cartwright, founder of Rush University Medical Center's Sleep
Disorders Clinic, in a statement. Some women may choose to sleep
separately from their snoring husbands, but that can also negatively
impact the marriage. (Penthouse)
If pizza and beer sound like a match made in heaven, beware:
Unhealthy eating habits go hand in hand with bad drinking habits,
according to a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
Researchers analyzed the drinking patterns of 3000 men and
women, then measured how closely their diets conformed to U.S.
dietary guidelines. Diet quality was worst among people who
drank higher amounts of alcohol infrequently (binge drinking), and
best among those who drank smaller amounts more frequently
(good for your health). (Women's Health)
There's macho, and there's just plain stupid. An impressive
number of guys are a little bit of both, according to a Dublin study.
Irish researchers concluded that one in 14 male heart-attack
victims drive themselves to the hospital rather than call an
ambulance. Four percent of men used public transportation, and 29
percent asked someone for a ride. That left only 60 percent who
actually called 911 a much safer choice, since ambulances tend to
stock all that fancy medical equipment onboard. Only one percent
of women got behind the wheel, but that doesn't mean they've
earned their medical bragging rights. Women took five times
longer than men to seek treatment, heading for the ER about 14
hours after symptoms start; men tend to come in under the three
hour mark. (Penthouse)
Sunflower seeds and pistachios are the best nuts for lowering
cholesterol and boosting heart health, according to a study from
Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Chemists there found that of
commonly eaten nuts, those two had the highest levels of heart-
healthy nutrients called phytosterols. Sesame seeds and wheat
germ, actually ranked higher, but are not consumed as frequently as
snacks. Brazil nuts and walnuts ranked the lowest. (National
As if craving for booze, drugs and illicit sex weren't enough for
many marriages to weather, now families are being torn apart as
husbands and wives become addicted to the Internet, says a new
study. Roughly 5 to 10 percent of Internet users find themselves
trapped in the World Wide Web, says Diane Wieland, Ph.D., a
psychiatric nurse who published her findings in Perspectives On
Psychiatric Care. "Addicts are using the computer so much they're
ignoring people in their lives," says Wieland. "It's slow moving at
first, and then all of a sudden, it takes over." Not counting work-
related Internet use, people who spend more than 40 hours a week
online qualify as addicts, especially if they shirk "mandatory work
or home duties," she says. (National Examiner)
Folks usually vow to lose weight at the start of a new year, but
they don't really get around to it until March and here's why.
"January doesn't require you to take your clothes off," says Harry
Balzer of the NPD research group. "In March, summer's
imminent." While 23 percent of adults admit to being on a diet in
January, immediately after making their New Year's weight loss
resolution, the number of March dieters is higher at 26 percent.
NPD researchers believe the nearness of summer, which requires
bathing suits and scantier clothes, is the biggest motivator for
losing weight. So around March, folks plunge into exercise' and
diet programs knowing they only have a few months left before
having to expose their bodies to the summer sun.



Happy Anniversary

You have been everything I've ever dreamed of and so much
more. I love you more today than yesterday and will love you more
tomorrow than ever before.
All my love,

The Word

Made Flesh
The mark of the beast.
Continued from last week.
The word enmity that was put
between the serpent's seed and the
woman's seed is rarely recognized
today. I, the son of man, say they pay
very little attention to the word.
Knowing this, we will take a better
look at this word. I want to break this
thing called enmity down to where we
might be able to see a little clearer
what happened when the enmity was
put in there in the woman and in the
serpent. Enmity actually is a sense of
inward feeling you have in you. This is
what enmity means. This comes from
the presence of an enemy. In other
words, you have in you something that
will trigger when you feel the enemy
around you.
I am not talking about the Holy
Ghost, but I am talking about you, and
something in you. It was placed in you
when you were bom. This enmity is an
inward feeling you have. Some called
it your conscience. So this enmity in
you God put it there and it acts up
when an enemy comes around you.
God put it in Eve to separate her seed
from the serpent's seed.
)'oes the serpent have a seed? If
he does, where is it? We have eaten of
it many times and didn't know it. You
have listened to that cunning, lying
devil put words in your spiritual ears
many times, and it might have been
just a few hours ago. If Satan can get
you to twist God's word just a little bit,
be doesn't have to get you to directly
disobey it -just twist it a little bit.
Some use three images in the
Godhead (set up somewhere) or add
another baptism of some kind, when
there is only one. (Ephesians 4:5)
"You shall know the truth, and the
truth shall make you free". John 8:32
Watch this feeling of an enemy when
he is around. You see the enmity is
already there to warn us; if we would
live as the word of God tells us to. I,
the son of man, say the enmity would
help protect us, and would warn us
when the devil was around.
Carnality comes, from the mind of
a person who is not completely yielded
qver to the spirit of God. I am talking
about Christian people.

Thank you.

Calvary Temple News
Evangelist Braxton Hunter will have two powerful services on
Sunday, June 25th at 10:30 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. Calvary Temple is
located on 351-U V mile off Hwy. 19. Call 352-498-3000 for more
Braxton is the twenty-five year old son of Rev. Harold Hunter.
Even though Braxton is only twenty-five he has already served as
Pastor for two churches, both of which have seen tremendous
growth. Braxton is an ordained minister in the Southern Baptist
denomination who has truly been blessed and anointed of the Lord
for ministry.
Regardless of "your denominational preference" I zealously
encourage you to attend both of these services. We often "talk'
about breaking down denominational walls and coming together as
a united church in worship of our Lord. Calvary would like to go a
step beyond just talking. Would you consider also taking a step
toward true unity and coming together in worship? When all is said
and done, as a Christian church we all have one common
denominator that should supercede our minor differences. That
common denominator is Jesus Christ. Religious or saved? A huge
gap separates the two! Join us at Calvary Temple Assembly of God
on June 25t.

Faith Baptist Church News
Today was a wonderful day at Faith. We had several visitors
honoring their fathers on this beautiful Father's Day. Our father's
were recognized and given gifts along with the highest of praises
for being in the House of the Lord with their families. We are so
thankful for the men of our church who are so faithful to bring
their families to church and teach them the way to go according to
God's word.
Bro. Jim Fisher did the special music in the morning service
and did an outstanding job. In the evening service, we had a
medley of instrumentals done by Bro. Buddy and Sis. Dot Britton,
accompanied on the bass by Bro. Kacie. We are always thankful
for the talent God has placed in our midst.
Bro. Jackie did a great job today of delivering messages God
had laid on his heart and in the evening service we had a
testimonial service as well. It's always good to hear God's people
praise Him for the blessings in their lives.
On July 7th our seniors group will have a social in the
fellowship hall at the church beginning at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is
asked to bring finger foods or desserts. There will be gifts for
everyone and lots of socializing with God's people. Then on July
16th our Vacation Bible School (VBS) will begin, ending the night
of the 21st. If you can teach a class, work with the youth in crafts,
or work in the kitchen, please notify Sis. Cheryl Lord. All help will
be appreciated.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, the lost and the less
fortunate. Invite someone to Sunday School and Church with you
next week. God will bless you for it. Until we meet again, may the
Lord keep you happy, healthy and safe.

It was really good to have Bro. Billy and Sis. Penny back with
us this week after their trip to North Carolina to attend the

special at New Prospect, and Sunday's services were no exception,
as fathers in different age categories, etc., were honored.
With our annual VBS and yet another nice wedding behind us,;
we now look forward to exciting new activities for the Lord.' Our
monthly Fellowship Supper will be held Wednesday evening, June
21st. On June 26th, our Ladies' Ministry will meet. Our annual
Church Retreat is scheduled during the July 4th week at the old.
KOA Campground on the Suwannee.
We're always honored to have visitors, and look forward to all
initial AND return visitors, anytime. As always, be in prayer for
one another, as well as our nation's leaders, those on the church
prayer lists, and our people in the armed forces. Hope you have a
good week, and may God bless you.

Behold The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3
"In the twinkling of an eye"
In the twinkling of an eye.
I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
Spirit, as we have learned, means the eye, and by twinkling the eye it
is lubricated and substance is washed out.
Proverbs 4:25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee.
The direction of the vision helps us in purifying the spirit (eye), and
then we will understand God's purpose for the hour.
I John 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself,
even as he is pure.
Yes, you purify your spirit and flesh in the twinkling of an eye.
Luke 11:33-36 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a
secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which
come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when
thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eyd
is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light
which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of
light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the
bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.
Candle means lamp,.spirit, or eye. The body is going to be changed
and made light body. How? By the single eye (not eyes), the eye (spirit) of
man that has been lighted by the spirit of God.
A single eye is an eye that is not confused nor does it see a double
James 1:8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
The true eye (spirit of God) has only one vision and purpose. It is not
confused nor does it see double. So by the twinkling (winking) of an eye,
our spirit can be changed from all double mindedness and come into the
singleness of Himself. We must come into the oneness, singleness,
simplicity of God's purpose before we can be in the true army of God.
The United States would not put a man in the army if he saw double or
was confused in what he saw. He might kill the wrong man. And, that did
happen in Christ's day and probably has happened in our day. Real men of
God were killed by people that did not know what they were doing.
We know that a man cannot see unless God opens his eye so it is by
the soverign grace of God. In twinkling the eye we purify ourselves from
all the filthiness of flesh and spirit.
Proverbs 20:12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath
made even both of them.
Isaiah 52:8 Thy watchman shall lift up the voice, with the voice
together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall
bring again Zion.
They shall see eye to eye (spirit to spirit). We cannot make people see
eye to eye. There will one day be a single eye and all shall see alike in
God's purpose; for we are God's workmanship and He will fulfill what He
has spoken. You will be changed in the winking of the spirit, because
whether you know it or not you are already being changed from glory to
glory, in the atom, in the twinkling of the eye.
Next issue we will be speaking on the last "in", in (at) the last trump.

SRWMD Outlines Strategy For Setting Middle Suwannee Mfls
Suwannee and Lafayette county commissioners didn't let Tropical Storm Alberto deter them
from attending the first public meeting on the establishment of minimum flows and levels (MFLs)
for the Middle Suwannee River and springs, held Monday night in Branford.
During the hour-long meeting, representatives from the Suwannee River Water Management
District (District) and Water Resource Associates (WRA), of Tampa, laid out plans and a tentative
schedule for setting the MFLS -water levels and flows designed to prevent significant harm to the
water resources for 15
springs and the section of the
river from Ellaville south to
The springs are: Troy,
Lafayette Blue, Ruth,
Peacock, Allen Mill Pond,
Branford, Charles, Royal,
Guaranto, Hart, Little River,
Rock Sink, Bonnet, Bell, and
"With this many springs,
this is going to be a real
challenge," said District Gover ing Board Chairman David Pope.
District Executive Director Jerry Scarborough told the audience, "What we're putting together
now with MFLs will be extremely important to future generations."
He explained that MFLs will help the District in the water supply planning process and will
provide guidance in making water use
and permitting decisions. The MFLs also will help ensure sufficient water resources for the public
and ecosystems; protect wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat; and provide protection of water
resources for navigation and recreation.
Presenter Mark Farrell, of WRA, said the "best available information" will be used in the
establishment of MFLs. The goal of MFLs, he explained, is to "protect water resources and
the ecology from significant harm caused by withdrawals or diversions, and to protect existing
legal users (of water)."
Data from monitoring gages along the river and springs will be collected, analyzed and
evaluated. A draft report with recommended MFLs is expected to be released to the public and for
peer review in October or November of this year.
Interested persons who were unable to attend the meeting can view the presentation by

Hunters Generate Record
In less than four hours, all 4,406 of the
state's alligator harvest permits were issued to
2,155 hunters wanting to experience the thrill of
alligator hunting.
Despite a computer glitch that blocked
permit sales for about an hour, permits sold out
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. June 15.
This marks one of the few times hunters
have gobbled up all available permits since the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) began offering statewide
alligator hunts in 1988. The FWC issues
permits on a first-come, first-served basis. Last
year, the FWC issued only about 2,800 of the
4,300 available permits because of a shortage of

Touch-Up Paint
(NAPS)-Here's news you
may want to brush up on:
Using touch-up paint on your
car can be an inexpensive way
to protect its value. Some
scratches can remove all the
paint down to the metal and
the area can begin to rust,
causing permanent damage.
There are several choices
for applying touch-up paint.
Spray cans can be used for
large areas and with patience
and practice you can achieve
excellent results. For smaller
chips and scratches, you can
brush the paint or use a paint
pen. Often, a paint pen will
be easier to apply to very i
small chips, as you can apply B
the paint more precisely.


With the right paint and
good instructions, applying
touch-up paint to your car
can be as easy as coloring

Issuance Of Gator Permits
At its February meeting, the FWC decided
to give hunters more flexibility in scheduling
their hunts, and it voted to extend the length of
the alligator hunting season. Also, unlike
alligator hunts in previous years when hunters
could purchase only one permit, the FWC
offered 2006 hunters the option of buying
multiple permits. These strategies worked.

This year's season will include 41
additional hunt days and will run Aug. 15
through Nov. 1.

$66 million of state tax dollars is being returned to District 10
counties in the form of FRDAP Grants, Road Projects, Water
and Wastewater Projects, Beach Restoration, Small County
Courthouses, Historic Preservation and Health & Safety
The list includes:
V 14 Recreation Projects (Parks, River Walks,

The 2006 Budget contains major funding for our seniors and
children alike. It restores Medicaid coverage for adult hearing
and vision services, and expands the amount of time nursing
home staff can spend with individual patients each day. This
increase will serve to ensure our citizens are properly cared
for in nursing home facilities. The 2006 Legislature extended,
the Florida KidCare program to include children ages 1-4 who
were previously ineligible for the program. Low income par-
ents can now purchase high quality health coverage at low
cost, for all of their children.

The state budget provides funds for the local Sheriff's office to
contract with the Department of Juvenile Justice to administer
a new STAR juvenile program to help our troubled youth.
This program replaces the previous boot camp program
*which was eliminated during the 2006 Legislative Session.





* Public Records:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1563
which gives the Clerks of the Court the authority to
remove confidential information from a published court
record. With this legislation, we protect our citizens from
the potential for invasion of privacy and also limit oppor-
tunities for identity theft.
Oyster Surcharge & Oyster Planting:
I sponsored and the Legislature passed House Bill 1249
which eliminated the "unjust" fifty-cent surcharge placed
on each bag of oysters harvested and sold in Franklin
County. This bill also provides recurring annual funding
for oyster management and restoration.
Funding public education was a priority for the 2006
Legislature. A combined $31.9 billion was appropriated
for Pre-kindergarten, K-12, community colleges and uni-
versities. District 10 Public Schools received up to 11.7%
increases over last year, and $13.2 million in special facili-
ty funding to complete new school construction.
Statewide Distance Learning:
Funding continues for the horticulture industry assuring
technological and practical advancements. This distance
learning initiative provides training and services and has
a significant impact for the horticulture communities both
in the district and statewide.

Dear Friends:
The 2006 Legislative Session proved to be exciting and challenging..
Legislators were met with many tough issues and concerns that
thankfully were able to be resolved for the citizens of this great State.
Our citizens, ranging from the youngest to the elderly, will benefit
from an abundance of new revenues made available in this year's
state budget.
Funding highlights for District 10 include:
* S13.2 million for new school construction
* S43.3 million in Small County Resurface Assistance Programs
* S1.5 million for Small County Courthouses
* S5.9 million for District 10 water, wastewater and SWIM projects
* $2.8 million for FRDAP projects
* S2.2 million for Alligator Point Beach Restoration
I want to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to represent you
in the Florida Legislature. Please do not hesitate to contact my
office with any issues and concerns that you may have.

met with House Members during the 2006 Legislative Session
to bring them up to date on the projections for the 2006 hurri-

300 miles of District 10 Gulf coastline. Both encourage coastal
and inland citizens to "be prepared" for the 2006 hurricane

To encourage and assist
Florida citizens to prepare
for the hurricane season,
the Legislature established
and provided a 12-day A

exempts essential items
needed during hurricanes,
such as flashlights, coolers, batteries and generators. A $250
million fund for hurricane mitigation was established to help
Floridians prepare their homes to withstand hurricane

Philly Mick has brought out the best in

It all started in a taraway place called Long
Island at Bethpage No. 2, the Black Course,
back in 2002, before Lefty ever had a major
championship trophy with his name on it. He
had been close before, having finished second
in the 1999 Open at Pinehurst No. 2.
For reasons known only to them, a laige
and vociferous gang of galleryites lined
thirways up ahead and cheered Mickelson's

invisible to those of us who aren't natives or long-time
residents. Maybe he arrived wearing those vagabond
shoes in the city that never sleeps and now he's going ,
io make it anywhere and everywhere. Whatever it is.
New York adores Phil Mickelson.
This "Lefty Thing" has going been doing on
with New Yorkers now for several years. And at this
year's U.S. Open, the Big Apple has once again
reached out to embrace Mickelson as if he were Joe
DiMaggio or Joe Namnath.
Maybe he hasn't yet reached legendary status yet, but
Mickelson would probably have no difficulty in Manhattan
'getting a table at any one of Jean Georges' posh restaurants and
:would never be able buy drink at the chi-chi Cipriana 's.
it's not like Mickelson wears pinstriped golf shirts, shows up at
The Garden next to Spike Lee to cheer tor the Knicks, or even has
a regular table at Elaine's on the upper East Side. If you asked him
to name the five boroughs he couldn't do it if you spotted him the
Bronx and Brooklyn. He's a California boy, via Arizona, for
tryingg out loud!
Since none of his greatest moments were filmed in The Empire
*State, it remains a puzzle as to the fascination with Lefty -
.although many New Yorkers were at nearby Baltusrol in New
Jersey when Phil won the 2005 PGA. Granted he shines them a
friendly smile here and their, signs autographs when it's plausible
and says how much he appreciates the fan support. But really, he's
almost embarrassed at all the fa wning.
On Saturday, Mickelson struggled a bit before finally starting to
'make birdies on the back and shooting a 69 to tie for the lead with
England's Ken Ferrie.
They still showed him the love, though, even when Phil struggled
from the rough. "It was a lot of fun out there," Mickelson said of
the adulation. "(My wife)
Amy was in the gallery and she just laughed."
The narrow fairways at Winged Foot were cordoned off by a
human rope that sometimes goes four and five deep, all awaiting
the maestro. They scurrny about to post-up a fellow patron, just a
get a glimpse at the guy the 2006 Masters champion. They shout
Mickelson's name like a bevy of croaking frogs serenading him
with each stride down the fairway. They goad him with "Let's go,
Phil!" and "Go get 'em, Phil"and "We love you, Phil.!"
It mystifies even the Mickelson people, this New York
love affair, and they are incapable of explaining why some of the
harshest and most critical sports fans in America have chosen him
as their icon. There is nothing about Mickelson that says New
York, anymore than something about Tiger Woods would say
"He doesn't know why, either." said his publicist, TR.
Reinman of Gaylord Sports Management. "But this kind-of stuff
happens everywhere we go. It happened in New Orleans."

When he returned to Shinnecock Hills Golf Club tor the 2004
Open, they were back again. Mickelson led Retief Goosen by a
shot with two holes to play, but double-bogeyed No. 17 and
Goosen birdied 16, finishing second for the third time in six years
Their man overcame some tough times and has rewarded them
with a couple of Masters titles and a PGA since then. When he
arrived last week at Winged Foot in Westchester County some 30
miles north of the city, they were there again, waiting to pay
respect to the winner of the last two majors who was working on
his own personal "Mickel-Slam."
So somebody explain, please, the Mickelson Mania. "I can't
analyze it, but I sure enjoy it," he told the press.
Out on the course Friday, the day of his 36th birthday, they came
to pay homage.
As they waited at the crosswalk at No. 4, a guy in a Notre Dame
hat badgered his buddy about their wager on Mickelson. "Wanna
go double or nuttin'?" said his big dude friend with the rolled up
Burberry hat. "You owe me 12 bucks!".
In a moment, here came Let'y, strolling by. "C'mon Phil!
Birdie, birdie, birdie! I got 12 bucks ridin' on yoose!" Mickelson
did not acknowledge the announcement of the huge wager.
Ahead, three guys from The Island waited for their chance.
"We love you in Long Guy-land!"said one.
"We'll see you back there in 2009," said the other.
"Back to the Black, baby," said the third.

Safety Awareness Ia&gue TO

In A Storm Hold

(NAPS)-You can protect
yourself and your family in
the event of the hurricanes,
tornadoes, floods and light-
ning storms that kill and
injure thousands every year
if you're knowledgeable about
electrical safety during and
after weather disasters.
"After severe weather is
gone, electrical hazards can
still cause deaths and in-
juries," noted Brett Brenner,
The Electrical Safety
Foundation International
(ESFI) president. ESFI warns
consumers to beware of elec-
trical dangers associated with
downed power lines, portable
electric generators and elec-
trical wiring or appliances that
have been wet. These pre-
cautions can help:

Use care when stepping
into flooded areas-whether
indoors or out. Submerged out-
lets, electrical cords, and
downed power lines can ener-
gize water, posing a lethal trap.
Stay away from downed
power lines and anything
touching them.
If you see someone who
is in contact with a downed
power line, do not touch the
person. You could become the
next victim. Call 911.
Do not drive over
downed power lines.
Have electricians install
portable electric generators
to ensure they meet local elec-
trical codes and are properly
grounded. Improperly in-
stalled generators can "back-
feed" along power lines and
electrocute crews working to
restore power.
Keep the generator dry.
Do not operate it in enclosed
or partially enclosed areas.
Generators produce deadly
carbon monoxide.

Do not overload a gen-
erator; follow the manufac-
turer's instructions carefully.
Use a ground fault cir-
cuit interrupter (GFCI) to
help prevent electrocutions.
Do not use electrical
wiring or equipment that has
been wet. Cr-orntact a qualified
service repair dealer to recon-
dition electrical equipment;
a licensed electrician can
inspect electrical systems.
To avoid lightning
strikes, stay indoors and away
from windows during storms.
During electrical storms,
do not use corded telephones
except for emergencies.
Avoid contact with
water and plumbing during
electrical storms.
If outdoors during elec-
trical storms, move to a low
point. Stay away from metal
Don't forget pets during
thunderstorms. Doghouses
are not safe from lightning.
Chained animals can easily
become victims of lightning

New Management Plans
In The Works For Four Species
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission .'
(FWC) directed its scientists Wednesday to proceed with the final
phase of reclassifying four imperiled species manatees, bald $
eagles, gopher tortoises and Panama City crayfish.
The final phase is to draw up new management plans for each'
species, based on the species' needs. Management plans typically
take a year to draft, and the process includes public participation. o
For two species, the FWC's action reflects good news. Bald II
eagles no longer are in danger of extinction in the foreseeable A
...future., Once Commissioners approve a new management plan to- A
protect them-into the future, the FWC no longer i l include them
on the imperiled species list. .
"What we're doing for eagles is working," FWC Executive :
Director Ken Haddad said. "That's good news. Our goal is for all _
imperiled species to recover to the point where we can remove
them from the list." .-
Bald eagles have established 1,133 known nesting territories J
in Florida, and each territory has one or two adult eagles. Forty ,
years ago, the whole country had about 400 nesting pairs.
Manatees, currently listed as an endangered species, have
recovered to the point they are no longer in imminent danger of %
extinction, although they still require careful management.
Once their new management plan is complete, the FWC will
reclassify them as threatened. Haddad said the new classification
will not result in less protection for the species. He said protection
measures are specific for each species' needs, regardless of its
Two other species that haven't fared as well are gopher
tortoises and Panama City crayfish. FWC Commissioners
approved staff recommendations to create new management plans
and continue the process of reclassifying both animals from
species of special concern to threatened.

Suwannee Water Treatment Plant 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 from samples taken on March 20, 2006 show that our
system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes
(TTHMs) and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s). The standards for TTHMs and HAA5s are 80 and 60 Micrograms per liter, respectively. The average
level of TTHMs and HAA5s over the last year was 278.1 g/L and 162.9 g/L, respectively.
Additionally, community water systems that exceed the maximum contaminant level are required to monitor quarterly for Disinfection
What should do?
Recent research results suggest a possible connection between high levels of DBPs and pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of childbearing
age may wish to seek alternative water sources. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs can choose alternative sources of
water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water or water treated by an appropriate home water treatment devices are those certified by NSF for
reducing DBPs in drinking water.
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 year 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? What is being done?
The samples that were taken were not in regulation with parameters set for these analysis. We anticipate resolving the problem with the new
Water Treatment Plant that will go out for bid in the next few months. Please share this information with all other people who drink this water,
especially those who may not receive this notice directly.
For more information, please contact The Suwannee Water & Sewer District Office at (352) 542-7575 or P. 0. Box 143, Suwannee, FL 32692-

Springhouse Quilter' News
Eighteen Springhouse members and one guest braved the rain
on Tuesday, June 13, to attend the monthly day meeting of
Springhouse Quilters. The weather was not too bad until later in
;the day but that failed to stop 15 members from attending the
night group meeting the same day at 6:30 in the evening. While
the day group held a monthly business meeting in the morning the
, night group held a workshop on how to- make a stack--and-whack
quilt. Both meetings were very interesting and filled with a lot of
good friendship-sharing time.
Gloria Sutton displayed a completed block-of -the-month for
June, named Arabic Lattice, which is made in black and white.
This is an unusual 6-inch block which can be totally changed in
looks by the placement and selection of a variety of prints and
colors. The center is made by joining 4, 1 1/2 inch squares and
adding triangles to the outer edge of the block or the pattern can
be incorporated into a grandmother's fan by enlarging and adding
a fan as the inner block.
Ruth Davis, Program Chairperson, has been collecting
quilting tips and shared 20 of the tips. The tips will all be
consolidated, printed and given to the membership at a later date.
The most interesting tip Ms. Ruth gave was for quilters to use a
Bass Pro worm bag for a tote to carry quilting supplies. Who
would have thought that a worm bag would be a suitable tote!
Elaine Faison gave a report on the first of three 4-H quilting
camps. The advanced group finished their camp during the week
of June 5. The beginner camp will begin on Monday June 19. At
present, there are 17 4-H members enrolled for the camp.
Show and tell during the regular meeting is always
interesting. Some items displayed were Goldie Bariusek with an
antique quilt she has recently completed and the advanced 4-H
camp members displaying their 6-hour quilt they completed
during quilt camp week.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters, call or
, contact Anna Gilliam 463 7922 or Lois Scott, 463 2207.

Gardening For Residents

By Bonnie Wilson
Mrs. Rose Marie Tebeau, and helper Shelbie Lynn Harper are picking
tomatoes right off the vine.
Tri-County Nursing Home and Rehab, a non-profit
organization, is setting quite the example with their residents.
Gardening is now a big part of the resident's activities.
Just ask Mrs. Rose Marie Tebeau "how does you garden
grow"? She will likely tell you her tomatoes are doing wonderful.
Recently she and a helper picked her first crop of tomatoes and
shared them with the activity group. All enjoyed a delicious
mouthwatering platter of fried green tomatoes.
Gardening seems to be a great motive maker for long-term
residents to feel at home in a nursing home setting. They derive a
great pleasure out of an accomplishment that gives back what they
are so willing to achieve.
The tomatoes are plentiful at Tri-County Nursing Home but not
the only thing growing. Beautiful, scented flowers are also
growing by the dozens. This has been a great addition to our
gazebo area for all of our residents to enjoy. The care given this
area has greatly benefited our residents in body and spirit.
Our motto at Tri-County Nursing Home and Rehab has always
been, Neighbors helping neighbors. How true that is. Should you
or a loved one be interested in our facility please contact us at 352-
463-1222 and ask for the admissions office.

Happy Father's Day

2005 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report Of Suwannee Water & Sewer District

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed
to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal
is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand
the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water
resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is drawn
ground water from wells. The wells draw water from the Floridian Aquifer. Our treatment
processes include chlorination for disinfection, lime softening, and filtration for iron removal.

The Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our
system and search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our
wells. The assessment results are available on the DEP Source Water Assessment and Protection
Program website at

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Mr.
Jim Brown, Chairman of Suwannee Water & Sewer at (352) 542-7570. We encourage our
valued customers to be informed about their water utility

'Suwannee Water & Sewer District routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking
water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated
otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to
December 31, 2005. Data obtained before January 1, 2005 and presented in this report are from
the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better
i understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in
drinking g water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
I Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water
below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment
or other requirements that a water system must follow.
*Treatment Technique (TT): A required process intended to reduce the level of a contaminant
in drinking water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed
:in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for
:control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water
disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the
benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1
,million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1
:billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Total coliform bacteria: Highest Monthly Percentage/Number is the highest monthly number of positive samples.

We constantly monitor for various contaminants in the water supply to meet all regulatory requirements.
Our water system was in violation of federal and state water quality standards for Haloacetic acids and
Total Trihalomethanes from 1/2005 through 12/2005. The levels of both contaminants are shown in the
Test Results Table. Some people who drink water containing haloacetic acids in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. 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 systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

We failed to complete required sampling for Total Trihalomethanes and Haloacetic Acids and therefore
were in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements. Because we did not take the required
samples, we did not know whether the contaminants were present in your drinking water, and we are
unable to tell you whether your health was at risk during that time. The monitoring period was April 1,
2005 through September 30, 2005. Regular sampling continued in the 4th quarter. We incorrectly
completed required sampling in March 2005 for Total Coliform Bacteria and therefore were in violation
of monitoring and reporting requirements. Five samples were required because of the positive sample in
February, but we took only two samples. Regular sampling continued in April 2005.

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams,
ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the
ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can
pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage
treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result
from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas
production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture,
urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which
are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from
gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E)Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas
production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the
amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must
provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small
amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that
the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects
can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general
population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy,
persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system
disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should
seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on
appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at Suwannee Water and Sewer District would like you to understand the efforts we make to
continually improve the. water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are
committed to insuring the quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the
information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

One of the most popular sid-

and city and county officials to meet the new
owners, Dominion Management Group. Cross
City's Mayor, Tank Lee presented the center
with a proclamation acknowledging "National
Nursing Home Week, accepted by Donita
The lunchtime event included a wonderful
buffet prepared by the Rehabs' cook
extraordinaire, Joe Weatherwax featuring the
flavors of the Gulf Coast Cancun, Key West
and Louisiana. The decorations not only
brighted up the dinning hall, but added to the
theme of the day which was to relax and
A special presentation was given to several
of the employees at the Rehab. Peggy Duty
received the Employee of the Year Award
while the nursing staff received their Years of
Service Pins and the center's volunteers
recognized with the Star Fish Award. Cross
City Rehab is known for their excellent care
and it is all due to the care and professionalism
that is carried out each day by the staff.
Cross City Rehab was opened on April 1,
1999. Last year the Dominion Management



Group took over the center and has proven to
be an asset to the residents and community

and skilled nursing care for up to 60 residents
who require limited and/or extensive
assistance. Currently there are 51 residents at
the center and 72 employees.
Each resident is given an individualized-
plan of care. Families are encouraged to attend
and participate in the review process.
Rehabilitation services include Physical
therapy with pain management, walking,
muscle strengthening; Occupational therapy

The Rehab sends 40% of all admissions:
home or to a lesser level of care. Residents
who remain at the facility are given continued
care to assure they maintain their abilities.

Cross City Rehab is a peaceful, loving,
environment. Their moto is "We pride
ourselves on a warm, friendly atmosphere,,
where, being nice matters." Our hats go off to -
all the staff there and we send out a big
welcome to the Dominion Management Group! '
