�2010 Dixie County Advocate


Do you have your python permit?


Lean economic times have led certain of our politicians
to come up with some innovative ways of raising rev-
enue without raising taxes. The most popular has been
to require a license or a permit for something that used
to be free, which, come to think of it, isn't a whole lot
different from raising taxes in that the taxpayer winds
up paying the government in either case.

An early example of such creativity turned up in the
1930s, which the most senior among us will no doubt re-
call were also tough times. There was this Chicago
Mafia kingpin named Al Capone that the feds had been
trying to pin something on for years, but all they ever
got were his underlings, while "Big Al" got rich and
spent his winters in south Florida. Anyway, what the
FBI couldn't do, the Department of Internal Revenue
(later renamed the "Internal Revenue Service," a more
user-friendly name for purposes of calling taxpayers in
for an audit) did. They got Al Capone for not paying tax-
es on the bootlegging and protection money he had ob-
tained illegally. How about that? If he'd reported it, he'd
have been arrested and gone to jail, and since he didn't,
he went to jail for not reporting it. Clever. Bear that in
mind before you decide to fudge on your income tax this
year.

But, I digress. The latest bit of creative revenue raising
comes to us in the form of a python hunting permit
(purchased in addition to a standard hunting license)
and no, you don't have to go to Africa to buy it and use
it. It seems there are a lot of these huge reptiles crawl-
ing around in the Florida Everglades and surrounding
areas, owing to people buying cute little baby ones for
pets, then turning them loose after they put on some size
and eventually ate the family cat. And they have thrived
in our own back yard, so to speak, feeding on the many
forms of wildlife found in the Glades to the point of be-
coming a nuisance, as often happens when non-native
species are introduced into our pristine wilderness
(think kudzu) and in some cases, also into the urban set-
tings whence they were raised, showing up in places like
the family swimming pool.

Obviously, this situation calls for remedial measures. In
times past, the state would have offered a bounty on
python carcasses, then sold the hides to manufacturers
of women's shoes and purses, recouping the bounty pay-
outs and adding a modest profit in the process. That's an
example of government getting non-invasively involved
in the free enterprise system with all parties involved
making a buck in the process--that is if you don't consid-
er the guys whose wives bought those expensive snake
skin shoes and purses.

But that was then. Now, instead of offering a bounty on
the bothersome reptiles, the state is designating an open
season on pythons, and requiring a special permit for
the privilege (?) of hunting them, which costs 26 bucks,
so the motive here is obvious. The season lasts only from
March 8 through April 17, thus assuring that the inva-
sive species won't be eradicated and the toll won't over-
take the reproductive process, thus the open season can
be repeated for decades, with python permit fees going
up each year. A good source of revenue, with very little
effort necessary on the part of government employees,
other than the wildlife officers who will have to check
hunters for their credentials and figure out how to un-
coil a 20 foot snake that is constricting some bozo who
decided to hunt pythons with a .22 single shot rifle.

Perhaps historians will one day remind another genera-
tion of our youth that there was once a time when you
didn't need a license to kill a snake, particularly one
that was dangerous, a nuisance, and shouldn't be here in
the first place.

Oh no, they didn't: Sprite steps in it


ty Kathy McKinney


NTD! In the text-speak of the kids growing
p with cell phones permanently attached to
y their appendages, this means "Oh no, they
" didn't " It's been all over the internet this
morning as young people register their opinions about the
latest racial fiasco perpetrated by Coca-Cola and it's off-
shoot, Sprite.

Apparently, Sprite sponsored a first annual "Step" contest
this year. For those of you white folk over 30, step is a sort of
rhythmic, stomping, clapping and chanting dance. It's big
in predominantly black fraternities and sororities, who
started it as a ritualistic way to honor
their African heritage. The step trend "Until justice
is prevalent mainly in college circles so
Coke started a scholarship contest. until education is


The winner this year'was sorority Zeta until opportuni
Tau Alpha from Arkansas. (Disclosure: it. the c
my Aunt Marion is a Zeta.) I watched with the co
their routine online, it was based on the emai
Matrix movies and it was pretty darned
cool. I watched the routine of the sec- proclamatil
ond-place winners, too. They were good,
but didn't have the "wow" factor that
Zeta's did. Why, you might wonder, am I L
boring you with the details of a contest
in a dance form you've probably never
heard of?

Well, because after the contest was over, nearly a week later,
Coke decided to adjust the winners and made the second
place team the first place winners, too. Everybody wins!
Trophies all around! (And we're not talking about chump
change, here, each first place stepper won a $100,000 college
scholarship.) Why did Coke backtrack and discover that
there was an unnoticed and top-secret "discrepancy" in the
scoring five days later?

You guessed it. The winning team was white. The crowd
who cheered them so loudly that you couldn't hear them on-
stage booed them and some even walked out when they were
announced the winners. Many comments posted on the
videos online were unbelievably hateful and accused the
winners of "cultural theft." Even though the Zetas were (to
my admittedly inexperienced eye) obviously the best, they
were forced to share the winner's spotlight with the losing


A Short Primer

By David Bozeman


Columnist Kathleen Parker re-
cently called tea partiers "the
noisiest sector of the GOP."
She chided members of the
movement for attacking newly
elected Massachusetts senator
Scott Brown, who voted with
Democrats in supporting a clo-
ture motion on their $15 billion
jobs bill. Brown, who conceded
that the bill was imperfect,
added that he hoped his vote
would be "a strong step toward
restoring bipartisanship in
Washington."

Parker did kindly note that
most tea partiers are "not
weird." Kathleen, you are too
kind. Such obligatory polite-
ness softens the blow to come
(and preserves her stature -
such as it is - as a conservative
columnist). She proceeds with:
"But some are at risk of flying
off into the blood-red zone of
wing nuttery" and "the growing
libertarian strain [within the
party] combined with an anti-
RINO (Republican In Name
Only) attitude is making life in-
creasingly difficult for moder-
ates such as Brown."

We can only hope!

Most tea partiers are reserving
judgment on Senator Brown,
but there are a few points about
the Tea Party Movement that
Ms. Parker and the senator
should bear in mind.

First, this is not a top-down
movement, fueled by charis-
matic personality and silky
baritone oration, a la Barack
Obama. Most tea partiers are
motivated by their adherence to
such principles as smaller gov-
ernment, less spending and
lower taxes. While leadership,
particularly in government,
certainly matters, leaders tend,
as often as not, to disappoint, so
their actions are viewed some-
what skeptically Still, most ac-
tivists are confident that the
right leader will present his or
her self in due course for 2012.
Until then, the real fun, a guilti-
er pleasure than a reality TV
drama, is watching the growing
fissure between President Oba-
ma and Democrats running for
re-election in moderate and


Second, tea partiers do not send
leaders to Washington to
achieve bipartisanship. To De-
mocrats who want to support
any plank of the conservative
agenda - welcome aboard. To
the rest, tea partiers seek your
defeat. Since liberals have
grown their power incremental-
ly, bipartisanship usually works
to their advantage. Conser-
vatism advances by holding to
principle, thus tea partiers
shun such banal fashion state-
ments as 'civility' and the cur-
rent already-worn-to-death 'rec-
onciliation.'

Finally, tea partiers do not do
nuance. Not to sound anti-intel-
lectual, but big-government
elites have granted themselves
enough rhetorical wiggle room
to near effortlessly increase
spending (called 'investing')
and raise taxes on middle-in-
come earners and business
owners (i.e., 'the rich'). While
tea partiers need not be con-
frontational, they are at least
direct. While the movement
may have attracted some "wing
nuts," maybe Ms. Parker would
like to detail how the GOP has
been served by the nauseatingly
conciliatory tones of John Mc-
Cain, Arnold Schwarzenegger
and George W Bush.

Libertarian Party Chairman, is

team because they were a politically incorrect color. Whin-
ers complained that they "disrespected" the contest just by
being white and daring to enter the competition,that they
"only won because they were white" and even that white
people shouldn't have been allowed to compete in a step
contest the first place. As the kids say, OMG.

I can't help but wonder if those bitter, complaining people
are even listening to themselves. The Greeks invented the
marathon ...should it be limited only to those whose ances-
tors hailed from Athens? Do we accuse non-Latinos who

on but not a fact."


Lyndon B. Johnson


Many of the more reasonable-sounding
commenters wrapped their whining in
the sacred shroud of "history," "tradi-
tion," and "heritage." Stripped of con-
text, any one of those comments could
have been uttered by any KKK member


during the 1940's. Heads up, players of the "race. card:" the
phrase "black pride" uttered from the mouth of an angry
African-American Black Panther radical is no less divisive,
hurtful and threatening than "white pride" from the lips of
a Hitler-obsessed skinhead. The only thing that changes is
the color. Racism is racism, and wrapping it in heritage, cul-
ture and history doesn't make it pretty or noble.

A commenter using the Youtube handle littlejdwhite leaving
a message-to the winning Zetas said it better than I ever
could: "Good Job ladies! From someone who's black and in a
Greek Org (Sigma Gamma Rho)! To the individuals who
don't get it...you can't stand on the race card when you feel
like it and step off when it suits you. If you want equality
for yourselves then you better be prepared to give it in re-
turn." Amen, sister. Sadly, the fuss over Zeta's win may cost
all the groups next year's contest. Coke probably won't spon-
sor another one after all this hullaballoo and bad press. Les-
son learned: when the haters win, everybody loses.


This letter is a reminder
about the County Commis-
sion meeting on Thurs-
day, March 4, 2010 at
10:00 am at the Court-
house. Higginbotham's
Store is to be re-zoned into
the FOE-Fraternal
Order of Eagles Club. All
concerned people need to
attend, or call your County
Commissioner about this
issue.

This club will be serving
alcoholic beverages seven
days a week from 8 am until
after dark.

Do we need a bar in our
neighborhood? They say the
FOE Club is "family orient-
ed." Thcy -'ortainly are; if
you don't have a SILuIe y,,"
can bring your kids to the
bar, who are exposed to the
adults' drinking.

We need to think hard, and
be concerned about this
"Club" being opened in our
neighborhood. People,
please voice your concerns
about this issue. Thanks so
very much.

Helmets are a must and it's
the child decision as to what
they ride...tricycle, scooter,
bicycle, skates, etc. Each
child participating must have
at least one sponsor. There is
no minimum set to donate $1,
$15, $35, $100, whatever you
can give. Just like at St.
Jude, no child will be turned
away from riding due to the
inability to pay a big amount!
Please make checks payable
to St. Jude Children's Re-
search Hospital.

T0 ro/ iers

By Bonnie WIlson

Winter is still upon us and it
has not let up very much.
Our days are still quite cool
and our nights are even
colder. Brrr... just when will
spring be sprung? I feel as
though mother nature has'
held spring up for ransom
and I'm just about ready to
pay anything to get it re-
leased. Although when I
think about it, I think I've
been paying that to the elec-
tric company already

At any rate, I must ride. I
need the fresh air and sun-
shine on my face and a soft
sweet nicker from my horse
as we investi-
gate a new
trail. I know we
will find some-
thing of inter-
est just around
the bend.

The last cam-
pout and trail
ride that we
had was at
Lake Panasoff-
kee Trailhead,
which is part of
the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District
lands. - Eighteen miles of
marked trails are designated
for horseback riding. Wet-
lands dominate this 9,900
plus-acre tract with exten-
sive areas of mixed hard-
woods, red maple swamps,
lakefront marshes and wil-
low areas. Uplands areas in-
clude oak hammocks, scrub
oaks and some pastures.

We rode across a wooden
bridge and into some of the
most beautiful trails that
Dave and I had the privilege
of being a part of in this
unique Florida landscape.
The 'sound of horses walk-
ing across this wooden -
bridge is music to my ears. I,
just love this tempo as the
echo reverberates across the
early morning air.

The morning's air was re-
markable. The temperature,
was a little cool making the
air sweet and the skies in-
credibly blue. We took some
interesting turns through
some dense wooded areas
and I loved it! I could get

lost out here and that is no
joke as I am not famous for
good sense of direction. It's
a good thing I have Dave to
keep me on the right path.
Now we're talking true trail
riding. As you know I love
that true trail-blazing feel-
ing that comes over one
when your in the thick of
things. Just don't get lost
and for gosh sakes, take
someone who knows where
your going!

Beautiful, graceful, elegant
deer flourish everywhere on
these trails. It is wonderful
to see them grazing with a
watchful eye as we saunter
by On this particular morn-
ing's adventure that Dave
and I are traveling on, we.
come to a
halt as we
see sever-
al deer
standing
in the
, middle of
our trail.
As we
watch
them for a
few mo-
S ments
they do
not seem
to be in-
timidated by our presence.
After several moments of
watching them watch us, we
move towards them and
they "mosey" over to the
side of the trail and watch
as we go by. I.didn't know
deer were people watchers.
Did you?

After the morning ride we
had all loaded up and went
into Wildwood to the Choco-
late Factory to browse, sam-
ple and buy some great
chocolates. Later we stopped
at KFC to buy our evening
dinners. The chicken was
good and the company was
great too! That evening
around our non-fire lantern
lit camp, we discussed our
day's adventures as we ate
our KFC chicken dinner.
Now I ask, could you ask
for anything better? Your
best four-legged buddy and
of course a few two-legged
buddies and your having the
very best time! If you'd like

FWC suspension of certain
fishing regulations expires
March 1

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) advises the
public that its temporary
suspension of certain salt-
water fishing and licensing
regulations to allow for the
cleanup of dead fish will ex-
pire on March 1.

The order - initially for Jan.
16-31, then extended for one
month - was issued in re-
sponse to numerous reports
of saltwater fish killed by
an extended cold-weather


Anglers: Get your free goodies
for buying a 5-year freshwater
fishing license now!

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), a major
partner in the Get Outdoors
Florida! coalition
(www.GetOutdoorsFlorida.o
rg) encourages families to
enjoy all the pleasures of
recreational fishing in
Florida. Active, nature-
based recreation develops
happier, healthier and
smarter lifestyles for
Floridians, as well as en-
couraging a conservation
stewardship ethic among
resource users.

According to the last sever-
al national surveys by the
U.S. Census Bureau dealing
with fishing and wildlife-as-
sociated recreation, more
people fish in Florida than
in any other state, and more
tourists come here to fish
and spend their money than
anywhere else in the coln-
try Like the FWC, the an-
gling industry wants to
keep Florida as the Fishing
Capital of the World and
knows the quality of fish-
ing depends on great re-,
sources ,and responsible
management

One way the FWC and their
industry partners encour-
age fishing and provide ex-
tra incentives and savings
to anglers is via a special 5-
year freshwater fishing li-
cense bonus program. Be-
ginning March 1, the first
3,000 anglers to upgrade to a
5-year freshwater fishing li-
cense will receive a special
incentive in the.form of
free tackle, publications and
fishing accessories that add
to the convenience and cost
savings already associated
with a 5-year license.

Matched with the priceless
memories created from
your fishing experiences,.
the FWC makes this a deal
difficult to resist. A 5-year
license costs just $79, plus a
convenience fee, but in re-
turn you know the fees
won't increase while you
have your license, and you
don't need to worry about
renewing for five years. For
most anglers, that amounts
to barely a dollar per fish-
ing trip, or about one quar-
ter per hour, for healthy, re-
laxing recreation that al-
lows you to connect with
your family and friends in a
fun, stress-free environment
- and maybe even take
home a free meal or two.

The bonus package literally
has you covered "hook, line
and sinker." The first 3,000
customers to upgrade to a 5-
year freshwater fishing li-
cense after March 1 receive


period in Florida.

The FWC is no longer re-
ceiving widespread reports
of dead saltwater fish
around the state, and people
must observe all normal
fishing and licensing regu-
lations that apply to the har-
vest ahd possession of salt-
water fish. These rules are
available online at
MyFWC.com/Fishing or
MyFWC.com/Rules.

More information regarding
the 2010 cold-weather salt-
water fish kills is available
online MyFWC.com/Fish-
ing.


a free bonus package by
mail with samples, maga-
zines and coupons from
fishing-related companies.
Some of the items offered
include free hooks from
Tru-Turn and Owner, jigs
from Fish Vision, a free
spool of Spiderwire fishing
line from Berkley, lead-free
sinkers from Bullet
Weights, and biodegradable
lures from Fish Bites and
Stubby Steve's.

Also in the package is a va-
riety of useful literature to
help ensure a safe-and-sus-
tainable fishing.trip, includ-
ing Florida Wildlife maga-
zine, freshwater regulations
booklet, boating safety, fish
ID charts, Polk County fish-
ing maps, and a Nature
Rocks brochure. Also
thrown in are Catch-and-Re-
lease (Sure Life) for your
livewell, a retractor for
your angling-tools (Power
Pole), instructions and spe-
cial."Fishhook Removal
String," plus coupons for
fishing or paddling trips
(Bass Online, Canoe Out-
post), educational programs
(Ladies, Let's Go Fishing),
fuel supplements (Fuel
Medics) for your boat mo-
tor, and top-of-the-line Io-
larized fishing sunglasses
(Ocean Waves).

Five-year licenses are avail-
able online at
MyFWC.com/License and
or by calling, 888-347-4356.
In addition, they may be
purchased at any license
agent, such as retail stores
that sell fishing supplies
and bait-and-tackle shops or
at local county tax collec-
tors' offices. Even if your
current license hasn't ex-
pired, you can order a 5-
year license now and have
the effective date for the li-
cense set for up to 60 days
after the purchase. The
package typically arrives in
three to four weeks.

Fishing license fees are
used only for fish and
wildlife conservation pur-
poses and are a major
source of funding for con-
servation programs, from
habitat restoration to fish
stocking and fishing-access
enhancement. In addition,
each 5-year license allows
us to recover the excise tax-
es that you already pay the
federal government on fish-
ing tackle and motor boat
fuel taxes to use here in
Florida for Sport Fish
Restoration Programs, boat-
ing-access enhancement
and boating safety.

fishing opportunities, visit
MyFWC.com/Fishing,
where you can also verify
that you will be one of the
first 3,000 and see all of the
bonus package contents.


March 2010


Hats off to the scores of
tremendous athletes that have
brought entertainment and en-
joyment into our living rooms
during a time of economic cri-
sis. Just in case you've been fo-
cused too much on the Olympic
games and didn't notice; it is
March already AND it is still
cold outside! Looking back over
the years of articles I have writ-
ten for the month of March, I
discovered that the highlights
were always the same: - watch
out for more hard freezes
- protect your plants
against the harsh winds
.- be optimistic as the
weather WILL change and
Spring WILL bring beautiful
flowers.(I wish I could be so op-:
timistic about the end of the re-
cession!)
I would like to answer a few
recently asked questions to get
you through our March cold cri-
sis.
Q#1. "What is the best way to
tell if a shrub is dead or alive?"
A = Use the scratch test. Gently
scrape the bark with your fin-
gernail or other blunt edged ob-
ject. If you see any green life
under the outer bark, there is -
hope for your shrub/branch.
Brown or gray - trim it away!
Q#2. "When should I plant
tomato seedlings?" A = Weather,
patterns look like it would be
good in about 2-3 weeks to be
safe. That goes for other sensi-
tive veggies too.
Q#3. "What is the correct
time to trim off the dead
branches from shrubs and
trees?" A = Once again, wait
another couple of weeks before
the pruners can come out. First
discover where life ends on the
branch or fronds and trim the
dead ends.
Q#4. "Is it too early to plant
shrubs and small trees?" A =
It is a good time to plant most
as the c6oler weather lessens
the shock factor. Hard freezes
are another subject. Also, be
aware that the newly planted
shrub/tree will need sufficient
moisture to establish its roots
even though it may be cool.
Q#5. "I have allot of
daylilies with new green leaves
pushing up out of the old dead
grass. Should I clean away the
dead stuff now?" A = No, not


yet. The dead grass will actual-.
ly protect the new growth from
any potential frost in the up-
coming weeks. My advice is to
clean the old dead material
near the end of the month.
In closing, please remember
the victims of the Chilean and
Haitian earthquakes as they
continue to recover from the
devastation. As you take your
walk in your own garden,
please remember the victims of
the Chilean and Haitian earth-
quakes as they continue to re-
cover from the devastation. Put
a smile on your face as you
share a new plant with a friend.

fVirtues of a Spring Stroll"
by Art Wyckoff

Let's take a walk in your gar-
den while the sun's shining
bright,
to discover the remnants "Ole
Man Winter" has left in
full sight.
We were dealt long hard
frosts,"more than normal"
some said,
but let's put the cold behind and
focus on what's up ahead.
March ushers in Spring, a
special time of the year,
for buds, blossoms and flowers,
cows, birds and the deer.
As trees change their clothes
from the dusty grays and
browns,
to bright greens and pink
blooms transforming smiles
from frowns.
Nature teaches many lessons
that we can learn each day,
if we'd only take the time to lis-
ten to what it has to say.
These thoughts I share as we
continue our walk,
to take a break from the
recession and all of that Wall
Street talk.
Just one stroll in the sun-
shine will open your eyes,
to the beauty, around us from
the ground to the skies.
Sow a seed and give it water
sprinkled with some TLC,
it'll put a SMILE on your face
for all the world to see;

God bless and Happy
Gardening!

Congratulations, Robert!


When Little Robert Carter was five years old in 1994, he
competed in the Mutton Busting event at the World Wide
Rodeo Association Bull Riding Finals at the Dixie Horse-
man's Arena in Cross City. In 2000, when Robert was eleven,
he wanted to start riding Bulls/ Steers. I attempted to dis-
courage him by telling him the negative side of bull riding
that I had observed over the years. I wasn't able to change
his mind, so I told his mother we had two choices,. which
-were to get behind him and get him proper training or he
would ride them anyway without it, and probably get hurt
so Tina and I decided to get him some training.

Little Robert was taught the basics of bull riding by Mr. �
Mike Platt, a retired Professional Bull Rider who rode the
circuit with the caliber of bull riders such as Don Gay, Lane
Frost, and Tuff Hedeman just to name a few. Little Robert
started riding steers and young bulls in the Southern Ju-
nior Rodeo Association, where he stayed in the top 15 bull
riders the entire time he competed in the S.J.R.A. He also
competed in the Florida High School Rodeo Association
where he was also ranked in the top 15 bull riders until he
graduated. Little Robert has competed in Rodeo's from
Florida to the Southeast and Northeast United States all the
way up to Maryland and New Jersey. Robert's ultimate
dream and goal is to become a full time Professional Bull
Rider. The talent Little Robert has for riding bulls is God
giveri, coupled with hard work and determination from
him. He has had the honor to meet four time world champi-
on bull rider Tuff Hedeman in Ocala in 2004. Tuff Hede-
man signed a photo of Little Robert riding a bull, and he
wrote "Looking Good Don't Weaken Cowboy Up. Tuff Hede-
man 2004". Little Robert has also met eight time world
champion bull rider Don Gay. He gave Little Robert a few
pointers as well.

Little Robert, your mother and I have watched you grow
into a fine young man. You are a blessing from God. We
wish you the best as you set out to achieve your dreams and
goals in life. We'are so proud of you and we love you very
much.

Your Mother and Father, Tina and Robert Carter.

PS - Tina and I would like to thank everyone who has
helped Little Robert along the way, from 1994 until now.


Art Auction/Info Fair

by Carol Davis

On Friday, February 26th,
approximately 50 parents
and visitors attended CDS
Head Start/Cross City's Art
Auction/Information Fair.
The purpose of the event
was two-fold. Firstly, the Art
Auction was held to pro-
mote volunteer hours from
parents and families of the
Head Start/Early Head Start
children who attend this
center. Beautiful artwork
was produced from each of
their 57 children who are
enrolled in this program.
Parents and families came
out to the event to promise
hours of volunteer work to
obtain the art of their chil-
dren. In conjunction with


the Art Auction, the Infor-
mation Fair was designed to
provide Community Re-
source information for par-
ents and families who at-
tended the Art Auction.

For the Information Fair,
the following Community
Partners attended: Dixie
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, Health Department,
Lake City CC, Anderson Ele-
mentary (Kindergarten
Packets), and Therapy Dogs.
The total volunteer hours
promised for CDS Head
Start through the Art Auc-
tion was 1,133 hours. Chil-
dren, parents, visitors and
staff had a wonderful time
and reaped the benefits of
the community partner at-
tendants, as they brought
lots of goodies for all.

Gulf Coast Supply Gears
up Factory Production as
Its Ready-To-Assemble
Kit Homes Arrive in Haiti

With its most recent ship-
ment of 30 kit homes head-
ing to Youth With a Mission
for use in Haiti, Gulf Coast
Supply & Manufacturing
Inc. (www.GulfCoastSupply.com) is
optimizing production at its
Dixie County facility in
Florida to meet the needs of
charitable organizations
trying to provide shelter for
families left homeless by the
earthquake that devastated
that Caribbean country

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March
2, 2010 -- When John Sherrill
and.Jeff Reed of Gulf Coast
Supply & Manufacturing
Inc. (wWw.GulfCoastSupplycom)
were on a mission trip to
Guatemala some years back,
they were inspired to design
an easy-to-build kit home as
a cost-effective option for
charitable organizations�
trying to help people who
were living in extreme
poverty and hit by natural
disasters.

The two company founders
could not at that time have
imagined the magnitude of
need for such dwellings in
the wake of the catastrophic
earthquake that hit Haiti,
killing tens of thousands
and leaving countless fami-
lies homeless.

The company, a leader in
metal roofing and metal
buildings, recently shipped
30 International Relief
Homes to Youth With a Mis-
sion for use in Haiti and is
gearing up production at its
Dixie County facility to
keep pace with demand.
(For updates on its efforts,
visit the company's Twitter
page at http://twitter.com/Gulf-
CoastSupply.)

"Installation of our Interna-
tional Relief Homes is very
efficient," said Jonathan
Sherrill, the company's Gen-
eral Manager. "They can be
built on packed dirt, con-
crete or pavers and can be


installed in less than a day
In fact, a crew with con-
struction experience can
usually install several
homes per day."

The kits can be put together
at the home site, or in sec-
tions at a staging area, Sher-
rill said, emphasizing that
the sections are easy to
transport and quick to as-
semble on-site. He added
that the crating material in
which the kits are shipped
can be re-purposed to make
bunk beds, tables and shelv-
ing.

Each International Relief
Home is 15 feet by 18 feet
and features two rooms, one
door, two windows and two
skylights as well as a gutter
system to help collect water.
The home kit costs about
$2,000. A 4-foot-by 18-foot
porch is optional. Shipping
costs vary, depending on
destination and number of
units purchased.

"We've been manufacturing
low-cost International Relief
Homes for countries around
the world for many years," a
company spokesperson said.
"It's our belief that in doing
so, we can help people begin
to make a new start and be-
gin to put their lives togeth-
er again."

Details about the units -- in-
cluding how-to videos on the
construction method -- can
be found at http://www.Gulf-
CoastSupply.com/international-
relief-homes.html.

In addition to the current
standardized model, Gulf
Coast Supply can create cus-
tomized units; costs vary,
depending on size, complex-
ity and quantity ordered.

Gulf Coast Supply & Manu-
facturing Inc. is located at
4020 SW 449th Street in
Horseshoe Beach, FL, 32648.

ucts, call (352) 498-0778. The

SURVIVOR SPOTLIGHT

In December of 2005, I went
for my annual mammogram
like I have always done in
past years. To my surprise
when my Doctor came in to
the give me the results he
had a look on his face that I
will never forget! He then
told me that my test re-
vealed a small lump. With
further testing it was diag-
nosed as cancer...breast
cancer in the early stage.
After being in denial for two
days I decided that with the
help of the Lord I was going
to beat this. With much
prayer and support from my


family, church family,
friends and co-workers I de-
cided to take treatment. Af-
ter 6 treatments of
chemotherapy, 33 treatments
of radiotherapy, and a posi-
tive attitude (which is essen-
tial) I have been cancer free
for four years. I have
learned to share my story
with others and not'be
afraid to ask questions be-
cause It may bring hope and
understanding to others "
who battle cancer. I praise
the Lord for allowing me the
opportunity to celebrate an-
other BIRTHDAY!

,hate to waste
fo aW l swhy you will
find black frozen bananas
for banana bread in my
freezer. I also grate the rind
off lemons before use and
freeze it in a plastic bag. I
lay it flat so you can just
break off what you need and
put the rest back in the
freezer. I freeze the heels of
store bought bread or left-
over homemade bread that
is getting a little stale for
bread crumbs or bread pud-
ding. You will also find con-
tainers of frozen chicken
broth. I consider leftover
chicken or turkey a chal-
lenge. After your family eats
their favorite parts of the
bird there are plenty of
things you can do with the
leftovers. Whenyou are
done with supper or even
the next day just pick all the
meat off the bones. If you
don't feel like doing it right
away you can put the whole
thing in the freezer to deal
with later. I have to wear
plastic gloves because I can't
stand to get my hands all
greasy. You will be surprised
how much meat is left. If
there are parts of the chick-
en you don't really like just
cut that meat up in smaller
pieces and you won't really
notice any difference. It isn't
usually the taste that puts
people off it's the texture.
Chicken tastes like chicken
no matter where it comes
from. Don't throw away the
bones either. Put them in a
pot with a few carrots, an
onion and some celery. Cov-
er with water and throw in
some bouillon cubes. Season
to taste and let it simmer.
You can even put this in the
crock pot and forget about it
while you are at work. When
done just fish out all the
bones. Most recipes call for,
removing the vegetables but
I usudl"ydon't bother. Store "
in the refrigerator until the
fat gets solid and simply lift
off. It keeps a few days in the
fridge or simply put it in the
freezer.

Now, what to do with the
leftover chicken. If you
don't want to use it within a


few days you can... can you
guess what I am going to
say?? That's right, put it in
the freezer! I have two pot
pie recipes. One is quick and
easy while the other is inex-
pensive but a little more la-
bor is involved. Both are
yummy


chLlee^n Pot TPie

1 recipe pastry for 9 inch
double crust pie
1 large can chicken drained
and flaked, or 1 cup leftover
chicken or turkey
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can mixed vegetables,
drained
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon poultry season-
ing

Put the bottom crust into a 9
inch pie plate. Mix the fill-
ing ingredients, pour into
pie pan. Put on top crust and
crimp the edges together
and cut 4 slits in the crust.
I always place the pie pan on
a cookie sheet just in case of
a spill. Bake at 400 degrees
for 40-50 minutes.

Now this next one is my fa-
vorite!

( xpe -sive cht-c-tee
?ot ?Le

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch
double crust pie
1 large carrot, shredded
1 large potato, shredded
1 small onion shredded
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups cubed, cooked chick-
en
1 can cream of celery (or
chicken or mushroom) soup
1/2 teaspoon ground black
.... pepper
Directions
In a large saucepan, saut6
the shredded carrot, potato
and minced onion until soft.
Mix in the chopped chicken,
soup and pepper. Pour into
bottom crust. Cover with top
crust, seal and crimp edges.
Cut 4 slits in the crust.
Bake in the preheated 400
degree oven for 40-50 min-
utes, or until golden brown.
Instead of shredding the
vegetables I put them into
my food processor and grind
them up. I have also cooked
the vegetables in my mi-
crowave. I cooked the onion
and butter in a covered dish
for a couple of minutes then
added the potatoes and car-
rots and cooked it for a few
minutes more. How long it


You can either use a refrig-
erated pie crust or make
your own. I recently got a
food processor and have
been attempting to make my
own. They are turning out
pretty good although they
won't win the beautiful pie
contest. You can use
whichever you wish. This is
the recipe I have been using.

easy Peasy Pie Cruwst

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup shortening (I use but-
ter flavored)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon distilled white
vinegar
Directions
In a large bowl, combine
flour and salt. Cut in short-
ening until it resembles
coarse crumbs.
Mix egg, water and vinegar
together. Pour into flour all
at once and blend with a
fork until dough forms a
ball.

If you use a food processor
put the flour and shortening
in and pulse until it resem-
bles coarse crumbs. Then
add the liquid all at once
and pulse until it forms a
ball. Wrap with plastic and
chill well in refrigerator.
This makes 3 crusts. You
can wrap the leftover one
and put it in the freezer to
use later.

Now, you have made at least
3 meals out of one chicken!
That's pretty darn good if
you ask me. That chicken
didn't die in vain!
I would love to hear from
more of you. E-mail me any
tips that have made your life
easier. Your favorite recipe.
Is there something you
would have loved to have
known when you were first
starting out? Is there some-
thing you did that you
vowed never to do again?
- Drop me a line. Nothing is
too small. I will love hearing
from you. We are all in the
same boat. There will al-
ways be empty bellies and
dirty dishes. Dust on the
table and dirt on the floor. A
little bit of humor and ad-
vice can make the trip so
much easier.

Jujitsu



Attackers will often
do everything they can to take
their victim to the ground. It is
just as important to know how
to defend yourself on the
ground as standing up. Jujitsu
techniques are some of the
most effective moves on the
ground. Jujitsu systems gener-
ally use the principles of bal-
ance, leverage, and momentum
to overcome opponents. This is
mainly what you see in MMA
(Mixed Martial Arts) type of
UFC (Ultimate Fighting Cham-
pionships) fights.. Here are' ,
some basic moves to get out of
a situation if you end up on the
ground with somebody on top
of you trying to beat you up.
* . Bring your arms up to
protect your face from punches
* At the same time
quickly and suddenly raise
your hips and "Bump" the at-
tacker knocking him off bal-
ance
S Trap the attackers
arm and-palm-heel punch him
in the ribs or jaw
* Push with your feet to
turn on your side rolling the at-
tacker as you continue to
punch
This will put you on
top where you can punch to the
face, knee to the groin until it
is over.

We teach MMA tech-
niques to those who are inter-
ested. Children should not try
this without adult supervision.
Our models for today's demon-
stration are Rebecca Strickland
and Patrick Hart. Rebecca is in
the Third Grade in Mrs.
Durham's.class at Anderson El-
ementary School. Patrick is 4
years old and attends The Dixie
Cub House.
If you would like to know how
to defend against a particular
attack or would like more infor-
mation about Martial Arts

Snook harvest is

still prohibited


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) reminds an-
glers that the harvest season
for snook in Gulf of Mexico,
Everglades National Park
and Monroe County waters,
which usually begins on
March 1, will not be open
this year. The FWC issued
an executive order on Jan.
15 that temporarily extends
closed harvest seasons for
snook statewide until Sept. 1
to protect snook populations
affected by recent prolonged
cold weather in Florida.

The order, which took effect
Son Jan. 16, provides that no
person may harvest or pos-
sess snook in all state and
federal waters off Florida
until September. Anglers
may still catch and release
snook during the closure,
and the FWC encourages
everyone to handle and re-
lease these fish carefully to


help ensure. their survival
upon release.

More information regarding
the FWC's executive order
for snook is available online

North Florida spotted
seatrout season reopens

March 1

The recreational harvest
season for spotted seatrout
in North Florida reopens on
March 1. This means all
Florida waters will be open
to the sport harvest of spot-
ted seatrout beginning that
day.

Spotted seatrout harvest is
prohibited in February in
Atlantic Ocean waters north
of the Flagler-Volusia coun-
ty line to the Florida-Geor-
gia border and in Gulf of
Mexico waters north of a
line running due west from
the westernmost point of
Fred Howard Park Cause-
way, which is about 1.17
miles south of the Pinellas-
Pasco county line, to the
Florida-Alabama border
This one-month closure
helps maintain spotted
seatrout abundance.


The maximum daily bag
limit for spotted seatrout in
the reopened waters north
of the established bound-
aries is 5 fish per person. In
waters south of these
boundaries, the daily limit
is 4 fish per person.

The statewide slot limit for
spotted seatrout is 15-20
inches total length, but an-
glers may keep one spotted
seatrout larger than 20 inch-
es as part of the daily bag
limit.

Spotted seatrout may not be
harvested by any multiple .
hooks with live or dead nat-
tral bait, and snagging or
snatch-hooking spotted
seatrout is illegal. Anglers
may take spotted seatrout
with hook-and-line gear and
cast nets and must land the
fish in a whole condition.
