TROPICAL STORM
FAY HEADS BACK
TOWARDS DIXIE


According to the NOAA,
Tropical Storm Fay is
expected to turn back to-
wards Florida on late
Wednesday afternoon.
On Tuesday afternoon, it
was gathering strength
with winds around 65
mph, moving overland
going north-northeast at
8 miles per hour. Dixie
looks to be out of the
line of direct fire, but
heavy rain and winds
can be expected in the lo-
cal area, and perhaps
some downed trees and
power outages. Dixie
can expect a 20% chance
of tropical storm force
winds in the next five
days. Dixie resident
Casey McKinney report-
ed seeing a waterspout
in Jacksonville on Tues-
day afternoon.

District's
governing
board has ap- .
proved the
purchase of
636 acres in
Gilchrist County. The
property known as Otter
Springs will be pur-
chased for .$6.8 million in
a deal that includes a pro
vision for the current
owners to relinquish a
bottled water permit.

Charlie Houder, Deputy
. Executive Director for
Land Acquisition and
Management, says that
the recreational facilities
along with an abundance
of natural resources
makes the Otter Springs
purchase one of the most
exciting acquisitions in
recent years.

"Otter Springs is an im-
portant acquisition for
the District because it en
compasses a number of
significant features relat-
ed to water resource pro-
tection," Houder ex-
blains.

At 636 acres, it is one of
the few remaining
paricels of its size left on
the Suwannee River. The
acquisition will expand
the corridor of protected
habitat along the river
and will extinguish a per

O n Friday, August
/ U 15 2008 the admin-
istrative staff at
Cross City Rehab
was settling in for a brain-
storming session at 9:02
A.M. when a member of
:he dietary staff hurried
into the conference room.
rhe staff member report-
id that the kitchen was
.illed with a heavy cloud
)f smoke.

As the fire alarm sound-
3d, the Director of Nurs-
es, Cheryl Lord, RN, alert-
3d the grounds and gave
Lhe location of the fire.

'"Please don't let us have


introduced his District
Representative, Travis
Hart and explained that
he was excited because
his three year old grand-
daughter from Delray
Beach would be staying
for him overnight for the
first time Wednesday
evening.

Boyd emphasized his con-
cerns about education,
saying that
he believes
that this
nation be-
came great
"because
each gener-
ation of
Americans
has sacri-
ficed to ed-
ucate its
children
better than
ory with locals it was edu-
cated." He
said that he felt like a
lack of leadership is the
cause for many "things
going on in this country
that concern me." He
voiced worry that Ameri-
cans may have become
"selfish," and that as a
nation, he feels that we
use more than our share
of resources.

Although he took several
opportunities to bash the


to evacuate' were my first
thoughts," says Ms. Lord.

The administrative staff
evacuated any residents
in the administrative area
and took their posts at the
front of the building, di- -
recting the fire truck, and
preventing visitors from
entering. The Agency for
Health Care Administra-
tion arrived at the facility
arrived to conduct a fol-
low up inspection, and
were nearly refused ad-
mittance by administra-
tive staff who, in doing
their job to the letter, took
the agents to be visitors
and turned them back.


Bush administration, he
stated that the current
mess in Washington is
"not the fault of one par-
ty or the other; it's both."

He responded to the
many questions about en-
ergy policy by saying that
unlike the leadership of
the democratic party, who
have blocked votes on ad-
ditional drilling, he fa-
vors more options for ob-
taining energy: "We
could use Anwar, and I'm
for that. Let's use all the
resources that we have
domestically."

Suwannee resident Ben
West asked Boyd about
his opinion on the Fair
Tax movement; he replied
that although he hasn't
read the Boortz book,
"it's a complicated issue"
and that he "could see a
fair, progressive Value
Added Tax."

Arthur Bellot finished up
the question and answer
session by asking if there
were any grants or funds
available to re-open Cross
City's Georgia Pacific
plant, perhaps as a wood.

swered that he would be
happy to lool into the sit-
uation and to help in any
way possible. ,


During all of this, the
residents of the Magnolia
Wing of .the facility, which
was two fire compartment
removed from the site of
the smoke, were trans-
ferred into the corridors
in preparation to evacu-
ate. How did the residents
take all of this excite-
ment?

"They were all having
fun." Said Donita Tannen-
baum, "Around here any
kind of excitement is
thoroughly enjoyed.

Locklear announces in city race


I, Clayton E. Locklear de-
clare that I am a candidate
for a seat on the City
Council of the Town of
Cross City


A Dixie County native, I
graduated DCHS in 1988,
and then joined the Air
Force and served for ten
years; doing tours of duty
in Alaska, Saudi Arabia,
and at Eglin AFB. While
in the service, I married
Elizabeth McKinney,
daughter of Norris McKin-
ney We have three chil-
dren: Rebecca, 13, Joshua,
10, and Jeremy 4. After I
was honorably discharged,
I worked in Bosnia for
a government contractor.


Afterwards, I returned
home and earned my
Emergency Medical Tech-
nician certificate and went
to work for Dixie County. I
was promoted to Emer-
gency Management Coor-
dinator and served in that
post for four years. I have
since earned my Para-
medic certificate and am
working for Dixie County
Emergency Services.

I am an active volunteer
at the Cross City Volunteer
Fire Department, the Pres-
ident of the Band Boost-


ers, and a coach and for
Dixie Youth Soccer. I am
currently serving my sec-
ond term as a City Council
member.

I offer my experience, my
work ethic, and my in-
tegrity to the people of
Cross City. I have worked
very hard on the City
Council to help build a
community with moderate,
sustainable growth and
reasonable taxation.
Thank you for your consid-
eration.

The property serves as
both an exemplary recre-
ational and environmen-
tal investment that will
offer protection to two
freshwater second magni-
'tude springs, over a mile
of frontage on the
Suwannee River and high
quality natural communi-
ties.

"District ownership of
the property will expand
the opportunities for pub-
lic recreation and nature-
based tourism in the re-
gion," Houder says.

The purchase'is being
made with funds from the
state-wide Florida Forev-
er program. The District
will also make annual
payments in lieu of taxes
to Gilchrist County to off-
set the taxes paid by the
current owner.

Upon closing in October,
the District plans to keep
the property open to the
public including use of
all facilities on-site. This
is likely to occur through
a lease agreement with
Gilchrist County.

Is this

something

new?


The media have been all in a dither the last.
,ppuple of ,eeks abpot the startling disoqvery:that.
former Senator, VP candidate and third-place finisher
in this year's Democratic primary-John Edwards had
S(has?) a girlfriend on the side.
Edwards' wife has cancer, but for some reason
he thought it important to tell the public that her can-
cer was in remission when he got the urge to play
around. Or was that when he yielded to the urge?
Actually, marital infidelity on the part of per-
sons in, aspiring to, or out of high political office has
been going on for quite some time. As a matter of
fact, I seem to recall that there was something about
that in the book of Second Samuel. What is interest-
ing is the widely disparate way in which this sort of
thing gets treated in the media, and to some extent
the public's reaction.
Nobody said much about Franklin D. Roo-
sevelt's mistress, though I recently saw an advertise-
ment for a book on that subject. But while FDR was
in the White House, leading the nation during the
,iGreat Depression and'World War II, it got about as
much press coverage as ae i out of town girls volley-
ball game. :;
Dwight D. Eisenhower got interested in the
woman who drove his jeep while he was stationed in
England during World War II. I believe her name was
Kay Somersby It wasn't a closely-guarded secret, but
not much mention was made of it until after his
death.
When John F. Kennedy was running for presi-
dent in 1960, one of his campaign slogans was, "Vote
for a man like Roosevelt!" Hey, they weren't talking
about old TR, now, were they? JFK's date book includ-
ed Hollywood superstar Marilyn Monroe, for whom I
will admit to having lusted as a younger man myself.
Interestingly, Marilyn is also said to have
shared her favors with Bobby Kennedy, JFK's
younger brother and himself a viable candidate for
the presidency until his unfortunate death at the
hands of an Islamic assassin in 1968 7 No wonder she
wasn't interested in a guy like me.
Teddy, the youngest of the Kennedy brothers,
of course remains pure as the wind-driven snow.
Richard Nixon's mother made him wear "Lit-
tle Lord Fauntleroy" outfits to school, so he was nev-
er a big hit with the girls, which is perhaps why he
lost a close election to JFK in 1960. His successful
campaign against Hubert Humphrey in 1968, of
course, put him at no similar disadvantage.
Jimmy Carter admitted to lusting in his
heart, which is probably the safest way Apparently, it
never got him in any serious trouble.
Former Senator and presidential hopeful
(1984) Gary Hart did not exhibit Carter's restraint,
#nor the caution that should accompany one with
more amorous inclinations. Hart was suspected of
playing around on his Mrs., but told suspicious re-
porters to catch him at if they could.
So, guess What? They did. And the news shot
down his dreams of his party's nomination and per-
haps access to the Lewinski room... excuse me, the
Oval Office.
Speaking of which, Bill Clinton did redefine
indiscretion of a sexual nature when he had that lit-
tle fling by insisting that certain sexual indiscretions
were not, in fact, sexual at all. Indiscretions, perhaps,
but at least not sexual. Well, stop the presses and re-
write the dictionary. What did that guy Webster know,
anyway?
Compared to some of his predecessors in the
game, John Edwards is a wannabe. Nice try, Johnny
boy; so why don't you cool it until 2012 and run for
president? By that time, it will probably have become
a political asset.

Georgia on my Mind


IM by Kathy McKinney

I can't help but wonder if, years from now, school kids
will be learning that the opening salvo in WWIII "The
Gas Wars," was Russia's invasion of Georgia. Be-
cause we are now at war, have no doubt of that. Rus-
,sia has threatened our ally, Poland, with nuclear
weapons. Iran threatens the very existence of our
stalwart ally Israel with impunity and trains assassi-
nation squads to kill Americans in Iraq. Russia is
funding Iran's nuclear reactor and is selling Iran bil-
lions of dollars in nuclear technology Our good bud-
dy China just signed a $70 Billion contract to develop
an oil field in southwest Iran.

Both China and Russia are making money, hand-over-
fist, not in spite of, but because of the sanctions the
civilized free world imposing on Iran. They're step-
ping into the vacuum left by European businesses who
are, quite rightly, pulling out of the mullah's markets.
Russia and China have a vested self-
interest in making sure that Iran acts
as crazy and as anti-Western as possi- Wh(
ble. They're cashing in and they can
hold Iranian fliukes over our heads to are on 1
try to scare us out of doing anything world
about it.


The only question is, how long do we
play Chamberlain and try to appease
this new '"Axis of Evil" before the in-
evitable war starts? Will we step up
" and defend our little sister democracy
Georgia from the schoolyard bully
Russia or will we hide behind a tree
until she's beaten, raped and bloody,
waiting for Principal U.N. to step in
and do something? Sure, she may


We made a brilliant move by sending in aid, delivered
by our military. I have to admit, it took me a while to
figure that one out. At first I was livid that we hadn't
actually sent in troops with guns to defend Georgia.
After all, teeny tiny little Georgia had sent 2,000 of her
troops to help us with Iraq. We owe them one. But I
was knitting my red and white football season scarf
and talking back to liberal pundits on MSNBC (yes,
I'm weird) when it hit me: with our military ships in
the ports and planes in Tbisli's airport--delivering hu-
manitarian aid, of course, which nobody, even
FRANCE can object to--Russia can't bomb the trans-
portation infrastructure to bits. They can't risk
killing one American, or hitting one, American asset.
So at least, the ports and planes are relatively safe. I
wouldn't be a bit surprised if we weren't parking our
"aid" trucks up next to Georgia's precious oil pipeline.

That oil pipeline is why Russia is having hissy fits
over Georgia, anyway. As long as the Russians control

draw the red line when Russia invades Ukraine?
Poland? Alaska? (I'll bet the Russians will be eager to
drill in Anwar, and make those ugly Russian hats out
of the migrating moose. Mooses? Oh, whatever.)

As Churchill said about Chamberlain, who spent
years trying to negotiate peace while Hitler was build-
ing armies and ovens, "You were given the choice be-
tween war and dishonor. You chose dishonor, and you
will have war." We do not have two years to sit around
and try to be "peaceful" and "diplomatic" while Iran
builds nukes and Russia threatens to nuke Poland for
helping us build a missile shield. We have to defend
ithe free countries who share our belief that life is pre-
cious and that liberty for all people is not negotiable.
We have to keep our agreements and show the bully
that we will stand up to him if we have to. We have to
choose honor and duty, and stand up for what is good
and right NOW, before it's too late.

Dear Editor,
Since hunting season is about to start here, and since our economy
here in Dixie County is strongly affected by the hunting tradition, I
thought that I would speak up here for both hunting and traditional
animal husbandry.
First off, dog breeders all over the world are under siege these days
from the mostly vegan based, animal rights cult, which is why so
many breeders have just stopping breeding--which is also one of the
reasons for the recent dog thefts here in our area, now that we are
starting to see an actual shortage of available smaller purebred
dogs in many areas of the US.
And of course it's not just dog breeders that are under siege from
the animal rights cult, but anyone who uses animals in any way--
farmers, ranchers, food producers, 4-H, rodeos, zoos and circuses--
and especially hunters--with or without dogs. And even health re-
searchers who are required by law to use animal studies for new
drug research before going on to human clinical trials, are now un-
der physical attack from the animal rights activists.
Of course all of modern medicine is based on animal research,
which is required by the FDA before any new drug can be tested on
humans. And many people could not survive without such medi-
cines as insulin for diabetics, which totally depends on animal re-
search. But we are now seeing hundreds of incidents of violence
against medical researchers here in the US--the most recent the fire-
bombing of medical researchers' homes at the University of Califor-
nia in Santa Cruz because they use mice in their research.
But my own Mother's life was extended by perhaps as much as a
decade, after her diagnosis with leukemia, directly through new
drugs that were brought to the market through medical research
with animals. And I think that my Mother getting to know her only
grandchild before she died--and he now having loving memories of
his then only living Grandmother--were worth the price of a few
mice.
And all of civilization is based on agriculture--which is totally
based on the domestication of plants and animals. And even the
American Indians almost totally managed their physical environ-
ment, from corn based agriculture in the valleys here in the South-
east, to hunting with dogs and controlled burns in the forests.
But when I went to the initial meeting of the Dixie County Hu-
mane Society a few years ago, at the First District hall, one of the
organizers told me that she thought that it was a sin that local fami-
lies had taken FEMA claims money for reimbursement for their
hurricane losses for all of the deer meat in their freezers. I paused
in writing out my membership check when she said that, as I then
.realized that I was dealing with someone who had been raised on
Bambi movies, and that she had absolutely no conceptiorf of the re- .
ality of life on this planet.
And yet the ill-informed animal rights fanatics are the very people
who want to make more and more laws to limit our traditional way
of interacting with animals--as unfortunately the animal rights cult
functions more like a religion--with true believers---and most of
them are not open to rational thought.
But the tactics of the animal rights movement are brilliant in
many ways, as first they use language to change perceptions. For in-
stance in the media the dog breeder has changed from being some-
one who loves dogs so much that they spend a lot of their life in-
volved with breeding them, to someone who is an "exploiter" and
"abuser" of animals--and nowadays if you tell someone that you
breed dogs they look at you as if you were a cross between Cruella
de Ville and Attila the Hun.
So now we are starting to hear the drumbeat from the likes of
PeTA and the Humane Society of the United States about "horse


the oil (and they do), Vladmir has his
boot on the neck of the entire Euro-
pean Union. Putin can threaten to
turn off the gas; just like he did with
the Czechs after they agreed to host
part of the American missile defense
system, and like it did withthe
Ukraine. France and Germany may
be our friends now, but they may be
more inclined to lean Russia's way af-
ter a few months of no heating oil or
gas for their Volkswagens. Imported
fuel makes slaves of us all. Therefore,
oil has become the weapon of choice
for the world's evil regimes.


I was watching an episode of "Jeremi-
lot, spells duty. ah" last night. What? You haven't
Sir Winston Churchill seen it? It's a sci fi show about a dis-
ease that kills off all of the adults,
......................................... and shows what happens after the or-
phaned kids have grown up and are trying to rebuild
the world. It's really, really good. Anyway, the bad
guy, who was providing his henchmen with electricity,
but not the starving townspeople (who he was making
stand in bread lines... very Russian!), said "He who
controls the power, makes the rules." That's a very,
very scary truth that is just as true in the real world
as it is on the Science Fiction channel.

Russia, Iran and China think We've lost our. nerve.
They know it's a "democratic year" and that people
are tired of war. They watch the politicos on CNN
talk about our weak economy, our exhausted, over-
stretched troops, and they cackle and rub their hands
together in glee. They think we're weak and decadent
and have lost our resolve. They think we are once
again "too proud to fight." They think we will sit
back and wring our hands and do nothing while they
impose their evil will over the world. We cannot af-
ford to let them be right.


overpopulation,"and the need to closely regulate horse breeding-
just as we've heard for years about the need to closely regulate dog
breeding--which we already do.here in Florida, which has one of the
most vigorous pet lemon laws in the US.
Of course the HSUS has nothing to do with actually rescuing ani-
mals, but spends an inordinate amount of its donations raising
even more money, and has basically be taken over by vegan PeTA
types who would like to see all animal use by people eradicated
from the planet. As the present president of the HSUS has said
about domesticated animals--"one generation and out."
And it's one thing for urban people with a New Age lifestyle to be
able to buy fancy "organically produced" eggs at astronomical
prices at health food stores, but quite another to demand that ALL
food be produced in this manner. After all, it is our modern food
production methods that have fed a lot of the world with reasonably
priced food. And if you think that food prices have already risen
quite a bit since the present oil crisis began, just wait until you see
the price of any animal protein once that animal has been raised
the way that the vegans want it to be raised.
But more importantly, modern agricultural methods have freed the
vast majority of people from being tied to the field in order to grow
their own food, and thus propelled the industrial revolution and
produced modern life as we know it in general. Thus most of the
civilized world is based on modern agriculture, which fact seems to
have escaped the animal rights cult's world view.
For the goal of the animal rights cult is not to actually make ani-
mals happier and people healthier, but to force the price of animal
protein-or raising and breeding any animal for any use-to be so
prohibitively expensive, by horrendous regulation, that domesticat-
ed animals will just disappear from the Earth--one generation and
' out."
They started with pets, as everyone loves puppies and kittens and
are justifiably horrified by the abuse of helpless small animals. But
if you are a farmer or anyone involved in 4-H or rodeo or ranching,
then look out, as you are the next target. And hunters and their
dogs are perhaps highest on the cult's hit list, as it is so easy to por-
tray them negatively to a largely urban audience that has no clue as
to the reality of human life on this earth for many thousands of
years.
For over the years people have developed perhaps as many as a
thousand different dog breeds during their long association with do-
mesticated dogs, and until the modern era dogs were an essential
part of human life in almost every part of the Earth-even into the
frozen Arctic areas. And many historians think that dogs helped
people survive the European Ice Ages, by becoming a trusted hunt-
ing partner with man.
And if Katrina taught us nothing else, it's that we cannot depend
on "the government" for help in an emergency So I do think that it's
imperative that rural people be legally able to pursue their
traditional way of life by farming, ranching and hunting-and rais-
ing dogs to help them both in work and play--if only perhaps for our
eventual survival in the case of the unthinkable actually happen-
ing.
So yes-let us all support animal rescue where there is real abuse
and abandonment involved. But let's not turn traditional uses of
animals in human society-such as hunting deer with dogs--into a
crime.
Sincerely,
Lu LeJeune
Old Town

Introducing:

The Cross City

Grizzlies!
The Cross City Devils were
finally allowed to change
their name to something
more appropriate for our
area! They shall henceforth
be known as the Cross City
Devils. We spoke with Elaine
Ortiz-Harden, the team's
owner, and she is very excit-
ed about the new image for
the team.
"I am excited that we were
able to pick our own name
this year. Seeing that I had
complained about it to the
league last year, it was too
late to change it. This year,
our new name is Cross City
Grizzlies. I hope that the' few
logo will generate a favorable
response in the community
because last year everyone
complained about the logo.
We know that the community
is very religious and that
name was not appropriate for
our community The team is
optimistic about the new
name because they are look-
ing forward to more commu-
nity support at their games,
Our first year we went out
and played as a team/family.
We brought home the Holi-
day Bowl trophy while com-
peting against teams that
were established and had
played together for years.
This year we have a lot of
new ideas and tricks up our
sleeves. We hope to see every-
one 17 and older at the try-
outs August 30th & 31st at
5:00 p.m. 8:30 p.m., and Sep-
tember 2nd & 3rd at 7:00 p.m.

My name is Chad Everett;' I am a candidate for the office
of Sheriff. I. have been married to my wife Brenda for 11
years, we have 3 wonderful children. I have been a law 6n-
forcement officer for the last 12 years. I started my career
at the Dixie County Sheriff's officer where I worked for 6
years; I then went to work for the Florida Dept. of Agricul-
ture (law enforcement division) where I have worked for
the last 6 years as a state officer. During my time in law
enforcement, I have gotten a reputation as being a strong
crime fighter, and I am proud of that reputation. If elected
as your Sheriff I will continue to fight crime strongly and
without prejudice, I will give you fair, equal, and respect-
ful law enforcement, no matter what side of the law you
are on you will be treated with respect.
I would like to take this opportunity to ask you 5 ques-
tions that keep being brought to my attention, are you
happy with the law enforcement that you are receiving?
Are you satisfied with the response times? Do you think
you're getting the patrolling you deserve? Are you happy
with the drugs that are in our community and our
schools? Do you like worrying about your personal proper-
ty while you are asleep or on vacation? If you answered
"no" to any of these questions, then I think it is time for a
change. I will address and mend all of these problem ar-
eas.
We have a terrible drug problem in our community and in
our schools. I am running my campaign on experience,
honesty, and good family morals so I am not going to stand
here and lie to you and say that I can put a complete end to
the drug issuesin our wide spread county, but I will
promise you that I will do what ever necessary to gain con-
trol of the drug issues in our community in a constant,
consistent, and continuous manner. Now, I will tell you
that I think myself and the school administration can
work together and stop the drug problem in out school sys-
tem. I would like everyone to understand that I am not
criticizing out school administrators, I just think it's time
for our Sheriff's office to step up and help the school ad-
ministration with the drug problem.
I understand that the Sheriff is an employee to you (the
citizens of our community) if elected I will be available to
you at all times. I will be a working Sheriff, at times I will
answer calls along side my deputies and investigators. I feel
that the sheriff needs to be involved with the community,
and most importantly, involved with the youth of our com-
munity. As your sheriff, I am going to start a youth pro-
gram, like some of our surrounding counties, and call it
the Dixie Explorers. I will work hands on with our youth,
educating them on the dangers that threaten our commu-
nity We lose members of our youth every year to alcohol
related incidents. I am going to address this problem, we
need to find out where and how our teens are getting alco-
hol and address it strongly. I will work with local, state,
and federal officials to insure that you get the professional
law enforcement that you deserve.
I have looked at our budget, and the shifts that the
deputies work. I am going to rearrange the shifts so that I
will have four deputies on at all times including the noght
shift. If elected I will divide the county into zones and
place a deputy in each zone, unless there is an emergency
in another zone. This will give us community patrolling
where a deputy can become familiar with the people and
activities in his/her zone, and will be able to recognize un-
familiar people and activities. I understand that there are
several areas in our community that do not have the ade-
quate patrolling they need or deserve; zoning will help ad-
dress this problem.
The goals that'I have mentioned are just some of my most
important goals. If you will support and vote for me on
November the 4th, I will promise you that I will be a
leader to my staff and this community to insure your con-
fidence and pride of in Dixie County Sheriff's Dept. Feel
free to call me with any questions or concerns at home
542-9421 or on my cell 578-4414. Thank you and God Bless.

Hello, everyone, my name is Joy Landrum Dyals and I a a Democratic candidate for Dixie COunty Tax Collec-
tor. I am 41 years old and a lifetime resident of Dixie' County. My parents are the late C.P. Landrum, Jr. (Dixie
County's own Hushpuppy King) and Marion Barber McKinney. My grandparents are the late Warren and Olive
Barber, all of Cross City. For the past five and a half years I have been married to Al Dyals, many of you may
know him as "Hammer." He is the son of the late Sheriff Glen Dyals and Georgia Lea Dyals of Old Town. To-
gether we have four children, Buddy, Micalea, Jordan and Morgan, and three grandchildren, Breanna, Savanna
and little David. I am an active member of New Prospect Baptist Church, the Dixie County FFA alumni and
also a Commissioned Florida Notary Public.
My career in the Dixie County Tax Collector's office began in 1983 under the Honorable Grady Hires during my
senior year of high school. After graduation from DCHS I continued my position was cut due to a county budget
cut.
For the next several years I continued to serve the public at the Sears Catalog store, Mahlon McKinney's real es-
tate office and Department of HRS until I resigned to stay at home with my 2 small children. During my five
year employment with HRS, I completed numerous administrative training provided by the State of FLorida.
When my children reached school age I became a substitute teacher with Dixie District Schools for the next five -
years and worked at the Dixie County Advocate for one year until 2002 when my career took me back to the Dixie County Tax Collector's office under the Honor-
able Joyce H. Davis where I am currently employed as the Lead Tax Specialist. This gives me over 20 years of public service experience to the residents of Dixie
County. Ten of those years were in the Dixie County Tax Collector's office.
During my employment with the Dixie County Tax Collector's office, I have worked in all areas of the office and have held the supervisory positions of
Hunting/Fishing License Supervisor and Tag/Title Supervisor. I have also completed the required continuing education classes provided by the Department of Rev-
enue which consists of Management, Duties and Responsibilities of a Florida Tax Collector, Registrations, Titles and Fees of a Florida Tax Collector and Property
Tax Overview. Completion of these classes has entitled me the Certified Florida Collector's Assistant designation.
I feel as though my years of experience in the different areas of our county and state governmental offices will be beneficial to you, the residents of Dixie County. I
was born and raised to a strong Dixie County pioneer family where our roots run deep arid our word means everything. I have been instilled with the values of liv-
ing in a small rural county. My mother named me JOY and taught me at an early age that my name signifies the way I should live my life, by putting Jesus first,
others second, and myself last. I truly believe God has a plan for my future and if this en-
l Ideavor is not part of HIS plan, bigger and better doors are sure to open. If elected, I will
I Ift i E I operate and manage the Dixie COunty Tax Collector's office with honesty and integrity

e tions in the Dixie County Tax Collector's office a more pleasant experience. Finally, I have

Local


Bonnie Faye Williams
Candidate for
Superintendent of
Schools


pr 4 v Q What do you think is the most
important quality that you could
bring to the office of Superinten-
dent of Schools?

Honesty, open communication and the determination
to make necessary changes within the system

Q. What do you think is the most serious problem in
the Dixie School System now, and what would you do
to change it?


Career and technical education; many students are
graduating that are ill equipped to enter the work-
force with a certified skill that would enable them to
become independent productive citizens.

Q. What steps would you take in this difficult economy
to reduce school spending?

There are many areas where school spending can be
reduced. Dixie's administrator to total staff ratio is
one of the highest per student population in the state.
This situation will be addressed if I am elected super-
intendent. Also, I will work closely with.the School
Board and Finance Department to eliminate exces-
sive wasteful spending.

Q. What is your position on cutting or eliminating
higher paid administrative positions in favor of in-
creasing the number and quality of teachers?

District-wide administrator annual salaries range
from $51,237 to $80,730. When Board paid fringe bene-
fits are added to these salaries, the cost to the district
is well over $100,000 annually for some of these dis-
trict-wide administrators. Some of these administra-
tive positions can be eliminated and the j9b duties as-
sumed by other personnel. The savings created by
this move will enable us to put more emphasis on the
classroom where learning is of greatest importance.

Q. What concrete steps do you feel that our schools
.need to take in order to increase the number of stu-
dents who go on to student advanced math and science?

More in-depth guidance services, structured toward
advanced math and science course offerings; placing
teachers in-field i.e., teachers certified to teach ad-
vanced math and science


School Office candidates who do not appear here did not
respond to the Advocate's advertised request to pick up
the list of questions or to mailed requests.

Mark Rains,
Candidate for
S- Superintendent of
Schools

Q. What do you think is the most
important quality that you could
bring to the office of Superinten-
dent of Schools?

I believe that the most important quality that I can
bring to the office of Superintendent is my experi-
ence at all levels of our school system including sub-
stitute teacher, custodian, bus driver, teacher, coach,
assistant principal, principal and district level ad-
ministration.


Q. What do you think is the most serious problem in
the Dixie School System now, and what would you do
to change it?

At this time, the most serious problem in our school
system, as in all government agencies, is a reduction
in funding from the state and federal level. My 18
years of administrative day-to-day experience in bud-
gets and educational funding will give me insight in
addressing these issues.

Q. What steps would you take in this difficult economy
to reduce school spending?

I would look at every area of our school system and
try to reduce spending in any area that doesn't im-
pact student achievement or safety. On a positive
note, I would seek additional revenue sources, includ-
ing grand opportunities and: business partnerships,
that would have a positive effect on student achieve-
ment, activities and safety.

Q. What is your position on cutting or eliminating
higher paid administrative positions in favor of in-
creasing the number and quality of teachers?

Teachers are the most important factor in student
success. While administrators do contribute to stu-
dent success, administrative positions have to be con-
sidered for elimination during difficult economic
times.

Q. 'What concrete steps do you feel that our schools
need to take in order to increase the number of stu-
dents who go on to student advanced math and science?

Our school district needs to continue to focus onhigh
performing math strategies at the K-8 grade levels
and initiate an intensive focus on science in these
same grades. When these foundations are in place,
we will be more successful in our high school honors,
AP (Advanced Placement) and dual enrollment
course offerings.

Cheryl Pridgeon
Candidate for School
Board, District 4

Q. What do you think is the most
important quality that you could
bring to the office of Superintendent
of Schools?

The one most important quality I
will bring to the School Board is my twenty years of
commitment to the Dixie School System. Having
been a classroom teacher, I feel that I have an inside
perspective of the working of our schools. I believe
this will prove beneficial to my decision making.

Q. What do yotu think is the most serious problem in
the Dixie School System now, and what would you do
to change it?

The most serious problem in the Dixie School system,
as I see it, is low morale. State requirements, budget
cuts, programs lost due to budget cuts, and the econo-
my in general have all had an impact on the morale of
students, teachers, and probably every other area in
our schools. I will work hard to figure out not how to
"get by on less money," but how to "do it better, on
less money"

Q. What steps would you take in this difficult economy
to reduce school spending?

'We are operating on a limited, fixed budget already.
Some steps.that might, help reduce spending would be
being more energy conscious, using more volunteers,
and recycling materials.

Q. What is your position on cutting or eliminating
higher paid administrative positions in favor of in-
creasing the number and quality of teachers?

I am definitely in favor of increasing the number and
quality of teachers in the classroom. I believe we
currently have a high percentage of quality person-
nel. If an administrative position is necessary I don't
think eliminating it would be wise. However, I think
there are high-level positions that need to be looked
at closely to determine if they are cost-effective.

Q. What concrete steps do you feel that our schools
need to take in order to increase the number of stu-
dents who go on to student advanced math and science?

By the time students are in high school they have de-
veloped an opinion as to what courses they like or
dislike. Usually, the student and parents, with the
help of the guidance counsellor, decide which rdute
they will take. Some of our students elect riot to tak6
the higher level math and science classes, because
they are not required by the state for graduation.
When we can influence more of our students to con-
tinue their education beyond high school, we will
have more students in advanced math and science
classes.

STATE
RECOGNIZES
LOCAL
VOLUNTEER FOR
HELPING
SENIORS
Grandmother of 18
receives two awards from
Department of Elder Affairs

TALLAHASSEE- Cross
City resident Mary
Kennedy was among 80 of
the state's best volun-
* teers recently honored at
the 12th Annual Depart-
ment of Elder Affairs
Golden Choices celebra-
tion. The forum awards
volunteers who work to
better the lives of Flori-
da's elders. Kennedy, a
grandmother of 18 and
great-grandmother of
four, was also named the
local "Ombudsman of the
Year" by her peers in the
program for which she
volunteers.

"The department relies
on thousands of vohmn-
teers to create a better
environment for elder
Floridians to remain in-
dependent in their own
communities," said De-
partment of Elder Af-
fairs Secretary E. Dou-
glas Beach. Ph.D. "Volun-
teers are also a financial
asset; they save our de-
partment over $50 mil-
lion each year."

"Making a difference in
many lives for the better"
is what drives Kennedy,
an active U.S. Coast
Guard auxiliary, to advo-
cate for frail seniors in
nursing homes and as-
sisted living facilities
through her volunteer


work with Florida's
Long-Term Care Om-
budsman Program. The
group seeks to ensure the
health, safety, welfare
and rights of elders who
live in long-term care fa-
cilities. Kennedy joined
the program in 2007. Her
fellow volunteers voted
her the top volunteer of
the year in the local
council serving 11 coun-
ties in north central
Florida.

The Golden Choices
awards forum coincides
each year with National
Volunteer Week, which
began in 1974 when Presi-
dent Richard Nixon
signed an executive order
establishing the annual
celebration. Award win-
ners spent several days
in Tallahassee learning
about the department's
mission and the history
of older adults.

The Department of Elder
Affairs and its programs,
including the ombuds-
man program, are in
need of more volunteers
to help Florida's seniors.

Q ello, I am Michelle Fowler Cannon. I am the daughter of Gary and Linda Fowler. I

believe that I ahve the experience, education and ability to successfully operate and
manage the Tax Collector's Office. I would like to share with you a few of my priorities
for the Tax Collector's Office.
My top priority is to offer professional and courteous customer service. I will make sure
that my staff is properly trained so that you can trust that your personal transactions are
being completed correctly. As your Tax Collector, I will hold regular office hours and
will be available to you. If you have a problem, my staff and I will work with you until a

elected officials. My dad taught me that all a person really has is their word. So I don't
take it lightly when-I say that I give you y word that I will do this job with honesty. in-
tegrity and to the best of my ability.
I would like the opportunity to put my plans to work for you as your Tax Collector.

FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH NEWS
Today was another wonderful day at Faith. We thank God for the wonderful rain
He has sent our way in the last week or so. And we-pray that He will shield us
from the storm that is headed our way and just give us more rain out of that.
Our Sunday morning service was so full of the Spirit and was very uplifting. In'
the evening service, we acquired two new members to our family.
On Sunday afternoon at 5:00 PM there will be a finance committee meeting to
work on the budget for the upcoming year. Also, on Thursday the 28th at 7:00 PM
the Seniors will have their social in the fellowship hall. The men will be cooking
hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken on the grill. The women are asked to bring a
covered dish of your choice. Desserts will also be needed. The Seniors always
have a great time at their socials, so come out and join us if you are 50 or over.
AWANAs will be starting the 1st Sunday night in September. If you feel that you
can help in any way, see Bro. Leonard Allen. All types of help is needed and also
there are some openings still for teachers.
Remember this week to pray for the sick, the military troops, the lost and the be-
reaved. Some of our young men are being deployed to Iraq in the next few days

Our visitors are very special people and if you were visiting today, we pray that

New Prospect, beginning at 6:00 P.M. You're invited
to come out and enjoy some fine gospel singing and
music with us!

,This past Sunday God again showered us with bless-
ings as we assembled ourselves to worship His Holy
Name. Our choir and musicians did an especially
good job as we worshipped in song, and Bro. Billy de-
livered two of God's-important messages, both being
very soul-searching and inspirational at once. There
is no doubt about it...it was good to be in God's house!

As we continue toward the end of the month, we look
forward to soon trading the hot, humid days of Au-
gust and early September for the cooler, moderate
days of autumn. We also look forward to more and
better' work for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. If
you, perchance, haven'tbeen attending church regu-
larly we invite you, along with all others, to visit us
anytime; we'll be glad you did, and we'll do our best
to see that you're glad, too. Have a good week, and
please remember to pray for all those on the church
prayer lists...prayer works! May God bless and keep
you safe. .

"A VOICE FOR THE CHILDREN"

An open letter to Parents, Students and Staff, both past and present of Dixie District Schools:
I have dedicated 29 years to educating children. I have taught many of you who are now teachers, adminis-
trators, and parents, and I have taught your children. Over the years, I have worked both in instructional and
non-instructional positions, with many members of the current staff as well as past staff members who are
now retired.
You have first hand knowledge of my character and what I stand for.
You can attest to my love and compassion for children.
You have experienced my academic standards for the children. '
You know my communication with you is honest, fair and confidential. '
You know that I will not yield to pressure.
You received fair and impartial representation from me as your School Board Member for eight (8) years. a

VOCATIONAL EDUCATION
Dixie County is economically disadvantaged. More than sixty-eight percent (68%) of our students qualify
and receive free or reduced meals in our schools. There is a desperate need in our school system for a curriculum that integrates academic knowledge with vocational
trades. Our current vocational occupational programs are highly successful. All of our students want to learn but they have different abilities. We need job readiness
and training curriculum that accommodates the abilities of the students to prepare them to enter the workforce upon high school graduation. State, federal and.special
funding, including the school district's capital outlay fund, is available in all areas of vocational education but school administration must be aggressive and take the
initiative, setting the goal, preparing the strategy and moving straight ahead and continuing until the goal is reached. I have this goal, the strategy, the drive and desire
to reach the goal and we can do it together. We have the facility (Dixie County Vocational School). This same facility can be repaired, renovated, expanded and
equipped to support a superior Vocational Technical Center. We have the students in our economically disadvantaged county to support the need. We have the person-
nel resources within this county to provide the training for various trades (many are retired people who have the time, certification and expertise). We have access to
funds to enhance and expand vocational education in Dixie County
My motive for seeking the office of Superintendent of Schools is my love for children and for education. I want to help the community, parents and students. We can do
this together by providing a curriculum that equips students with the knowledge and skills that are necessary to be successful in the workforce of today

Youth
Conservation
Corps
Employment
Ends as
School Opens


Each and every summer
for the last six years, the
Lower Suwannee Nation-
al Wildlife Refuge has
hired four area students
as the Youth Conserva-
tion Corps (YCC). The
national YCC Program
goal is not merely to em-
ploy high school stu-
dents, but to instill in
them an environmental
ethic and to prepare them
for land management em-
ployment in the future.

While most students en-
joy sleeping-in over the
hot humid summer
months, the YCC is at
work at 7:00am and build-
ing hunter check-stands
at 7:20, or repairing
docks, or clearing trails,
landscaping, or maintain-


ping it for an overhaul.

'"Ashley not only worked
with our YCC last year,
but returned and volun-
teered with us for our, Na-
tional Wildlife Refuge
Week celebration at the
lighthouse on Seahorse
Key," said Ranger Pam
Darty. "It's exciting to see
young women and young
men dedicating time to
conservation in this era
of high-tech and distrac-
tion."

Applaud these sons and
daughters of your neigh-
bors and friends. If you'd
like your student to be in-
volved in the Youth Con-
servation Program 2009,
contact the refuge in
April for an application
or call the Ranger for
more information at
352/493-0238, extension

The Way To A Child's Mind Is Through The Heart


MARK'S PRIORITIES...


* Global Positioning System (GPS) in-
stalled on all school buses-gives speed
and location of bus) Law enforcement
quick response... parent's peach of
mind.
* Re-instate Driver Education- 1 teen-
ager dies every 12 seconds on our high-
ways. Education can make a difference
when our children are on the highway.
* Install campus camera system at Ruth
Rains Middle School and Old Town Ele-
mentary (DCHS and AES currently have
camera systems) Nothing is more im-
portant than student safety.
* Implement a mass notification emer-
gency system through text messages to
all parents and stakeholders.
* Reduce discipline problems on our cam-
puses-our children deserve to be safe
at school. I have the confidence and
courage to make the changes necessary
to remove disruptive and violent stu-
dents.


* Hire people who love children and
want to make a difference in their
lives.
* Change will only take place if employ-
ees work together-TEAMWORK!
* Utilize an existing space for a Super-
intendent's satellite office in Old
Town with specific days and times I
will be in the Old Town office for your
traveling convenience.
* Change the way we work with all
agencies-county, city, prison, and
sheriff's office. In a small county, we
must pull together and share re-
sources.
* I will represent Dixie County at the
regional and state level in a manner
in which you would approve. I will
aggressively fight for our children and
see that our County receives its fair
share.


* Change and improve communications from the Admini-
stration to faculty, staff and parents.
* Increase the involvement of faculty and staff concerning
selection of software programs, textbooks and major cur-
riculum decisions. Input and evaluation from all con-
cerned parents.
* Expand dual enrollment and vocational offerings at Dixie
County High School. Each child deserves every opportu-
nity to be successful.
* In these extremely difficult budget times, we must find
ways to increase teacher and staff salaries. I have 18
years of day to day experience in dealing with school fi-
nancial matters and I am ready, willing and able to make
the changes necessary to build a strong school system.
* I believe quality facilities improve student performance.
In my current role as Executive Director of Support Ser-
vices, I am aggressively pursuing special facilities construc-
tion funding through the State and using no local dollars
for a new high school campus in Dixie County. These are
funds set aside for small counties for construction pur-
poses only and cannot be used for employee raises. I
strongly believe I can make this dream a reality if elected
as your Superintendent of Scho6ls.


The Governor has forecasted an additional 4% budget cut for all Florida school districts in November 2008. I
will make changes and cuts at the administrative level while protecting the teachers and students at all costs
