Dixie's February
Unemployment
drops slightly

Dixie County's Unemploy-
ment rate dropped in Feb-
ruary from 14.2 % (Janu-
ary) to 13.7%. According to
statistics released by the
State of Florida, 794 people
were unemployed in Febru-
ary, compared to 830 in Jan-
uary. The statistics show
that Dixie's work force de-
creased by 36 people from
January to February, mean-
ing that the drop in unem-
ployment of 34 people was
due to people leaving the
workforce entirely through
giving up the job search or
retiring, not due to people
getting jobs.

N- District Weightlifting Titles


Collins Gray Potter


On Monday afternoon
March 22, 2010, David
Collins, 43 years of age
from Old Town was stopped
for a minor traffic infrac-
tion and felony Driving on
a Suspended License. A
Sheriff's K-9 was then used
to conduct an exterior
search of the vehicle.' The
K-9 indicated that there
were narcotics in the vehi-
cle. Collins was then ar-
rested for Driving on a Sus-
pended License and
searched incident to arrest.

As a result of the search of
Collins and his vehicle,
deputies discovered various
items that included a hypo-
dermic syringe, metham-,
phetamine, crack cocaine
and smoking paraphernalia
along with the remains of
lithium batteries that are
commonly used in the man-
ufacture of mnethampheta-
mine.

Investigators had already
arrived on the scene and
further investigation led in-


vestigators and deputies to
the residence where Collins
had frequented. Once
there, deputies not only dis-
covered other items of evi-
dence used in the manufac-
ture of methamphetamine,
but they also discovered
two individuals that had
current outstanding war-
rants.

Timothy Gray, 19 years of
age from Old Town and
Kurtis Potter, 19 years of
age from Old Town, were
discovered to be at the resi-
dence and both had out-
standing warrants for Vio-
lation of Probation Driving
on a Suspended License
and Violation of Probation
for the Sale of a Controlled
Substance respectively.


All three subjects were ar-
rested and transported to
the Dixie County Jail
where they remain in cus-
tody pending court appear-
ances.

On March 25th, the Bears
Weightlifting team hosted
four other schools in a meet
for the District Title. Join-
ing the Bears was Trenton,
Chiefland, Bell and Bron-
son. All the teams looked
ready to go, and everyone of
them did an awesome job
and gave it their best. Mike


McKain visits Steinhatchee


"I didn't leave the Republi-
can Party, they left me." is
Paul McKain's reply when
asked why he's running for
Congressional District 2 as
an Independent against in-
cumbent Allen Boyd (D). He
said that when the party
started spending money like
water and putting up pro-
gressive candidates like
John McCain, he felt that he,
could no longer call himself
a Republican.

Mr. McKain met with the
Steinhatchee Chamber of
Commerce on Thursday for
an informal lunch. McKain
addressed a variety of is-
sues and answered ques-
tions from residents and
business owners.

"I love the Fair Tax, he said
when asked, "If you want to
solve our economic woes,
that's one of the things I'm
going to be the biggest pro-
ponent of." He said that the
one thing that Congress'
passage of healthcare re-
form has accomplished is
uniting the country, "They
have united the country--
against them."


McKain stuck to the conser-
vative talking points, saying
of abortion that "this is a
state's rights issue. I'm very
pro-10th Amendment. Roe
vs. Wade should never have
happened. The courts
should have sent it back to
the states. He continued,
saying that "The majority of
our problems would disap-
pear if we could just save
the family"

He explained to.Steinhatch-
ee residents that "We've got
to stop spending and bor-
rowing money This govern-
ment needs to be curtailed.
It is immoral to pass this
debt on to our kids."


McKain lives near Talla-
hasee with his wife of 28
years, Ruth and their three
kids. He worked as a Para-
medic/Firefighter for Sun-
rise Florida Fire Rescue for
23 years. He invented a vacu-
um release system for pools
and spas after learning that
children were being injured
and killed when hair or
clothing became caught in
suction filters. His advocacy
for child safety resulted in
federal legislation requiring
all pools and spas to have a
release system. You can find
out more information on his
campaign at www.PaulMcK-
ain.com.

Tuesday morning March 23,
2010, a black Hyundai was
clocked at 87 miles per hour
just south of Eugene. As
the Sheriff's
Deputy turned
into the median to
turn around, the
vehicle made an
abrupt lane
change in front of
a school bus and A
then turned onto
NE 389th Street.
At the deputy was
attempting to overtake the
vehicle, it turned into a dri-
veway and then turned.
around and back out onto
NE 389th Street in an at-
tempt to change his direc-


tion of travel and proceed
north on U.S. 19. At this
point, the deputy was able
to conduct the traffic-stop
where he was able to
identify Garrett
John Dyals, 21 years
of age, of Old Town.
S' During the traffic
stop, it was discov-
er ed that Dyals did
not have a valid dri-
ver's license. Dyals
was then arrested
for Driving without
a License and Obstructing
Justice for his attempts to
elude officers who he knew
were making attempts to
stop him for the speeding vi-
olation.

An endorsement... of sorts

President Obama has been prouder than a peacock
about the passage of his controversial health care bill,
and he has gotten a lot of favorable feedback from the
media, starting at the "top" with the prestigious New
York Times and filtering down through the gaggle of
"lesser" publications, TV network news departments
and bed-wetting bloggers.

Indeed, the media elite would have us believe that, when
Obama signed the bill with his 22 pens, it was akin to
Abraham Lincon's signing the Emancipation Proclama-
tion. (Actually better--after all, Lincon was a Republi-
can!) Today's remaining Republicans and the "Tea Party
Independents" had been reduced to irrelevancy It was
the beginning of a Brave New World!

All right, then, how come Obama's approval rating (as
obtained from polls of the common people) continues
well below 50%? And how is it that Congress' approval
rating is even lower? Well, maybe the ordinary, working-
class folk just lack the sophistication to appreciate what
their leadership has bequeathed to them. Instead of lis-
tening to the great unwashed, perhaps we should heed
the words of a great leader whose collectivist paradise
exists less than 100 miles from our southern border.

By now, you must know that I speak of retired (?) Cuban
Premier Fidel Castro, who recently applauded the Oba-
ma administration and the congressional majority that
passed this monumental piece of progressive legislation.
To quote his eminence, "We consider health reform to
have been an important battle and a success of (Oba-
ma's) government....." Castro went on to say that it took
entirely too long for the United States to implement so-
cial reforms that Cuba had in place a half-century ago.
Well, I guess a little scolding is in order, but at least he
figures we've got it right now. Gee, thanks.

Incidentally, Cuba's free health care, along
with its other socialistic subsidies, has fi-
nancially strapped our little island neigh-
bor, and they may have to consider ra-
tioning health care. My heavens! Can you
imagine that? Well, actually, you don't need
to imagine at all. Just check in with anyone
who lives in Canada-or any European coun-
try and you'll get an earful about health
care rationing. A lot of people wait in line
until they die, and it occurs everywhere that
government takes over health care!

Cuba got away with socialist/communist
benefits for a lot of years because the Sovi-
ets were paying them big rubles to use their
real estate as a launching pad for nuclear
missiles that could easily reach the eastern .
half of the United States. And if you believe
that problem ceased to exist during the
Kennedy administration, I'd be glad to sell
you some of my Wachovia stock. Ah, but the
Soviet subsidy ended in 1989, and the Cuban economy
has been going downhill ever since.

The Government of the United States never had a for-
eign sugar daddy, and neither have the Canadians or'the
Europeans, all of whom are now harvesting the bitter
fruits of collectivist schemes to create a perfect world.
The difference is that the United States has been suffi-
ciently self-reliant to resist the temptation. Notice that I
said "has been." That's a term commonly used to de-
scribe someone or something that is over the hill and/or
down the drain.

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher once
said, "The trouble with socialism is that, sooner or later,
you run out of other people's money" Too bad her coun-
trymen and the rest of the world didn't listen to her.

Stop the presses: I was WRONG


, Kathy McKinney
t's weird. Sometimes you hear a random
sentence that just makes you re-think your
position on an entire topic, and realize that
* .you have been sadly horribly wrong. This
happened to me this week, while sitting in
Steinhatchee listening to congressional candidate Paul
McKain give his politician spliel.

A lady I didn't know from Steinhatchee--again, it's weird, I
was born in Steinhatchee but I don't hardly know a soul
down there anymore, they all seem to be from somewhere
else--anyway a lady was complaining to Mr. McKain that
Steinhatchee doesn't have a boat ramp. The entire Chamber
of Commerce seemed to echo her frustra-
tion. "Why won't they (Taylor County) Power is not
build us a boat ramp? We need one!" The
business leaders of Steinhatchee then, On
took turns explaining how a boat ramp dictatorship ir
would benefit local business, and how revolution; one mn
they were losing customers to other areas
that do have boat ramps. , order to esta

The general consensus seemed to be that
the Taylor County taxpayers owed Stein-
hatchee a boat ramp, and that they were
going to complain until they got one. Somebody mentioned
that only a little over a hundred people even voted in Stein-
hatchee in the last election, and that they didn't have
enough political clout to get the grant money to build a
"free" boat ramp on the taxpayer dime.

I leaned over to my luncheon companion Ben West and said,
in an admittedly snarky way, "True conservatives would get
together and build their own danged boat ramp and not sit
around whining and waiting for the government to build it
for them." I felt pretty proud of myself at the time, but on
the way home, I thought about it...and realized that I, too,
have fallen into the same lazy habits of mind that I was
mocking. Sorry, Steinhatchee people. Mea culpa.

Because you see, I really, really want high-speed internet.
Really, really, really badly I pay a ridiculous amount of
money to Hughesnet every month to pay for my own satel-
lite link that is almost high-speed, but the bandwidth is
tightly limited. I want unlimited, all-you-can-eat internet
like people in big towns--like Cross City--have. I want to be
able to stream movies from Netflix like my sister can, and I
want to be able to download games, watch videos, and listen
to Glenn Beck on. the radio without worrying about using up
all of my 200 megabytes a day I admit it: I have bandwidth
envy


a-
*t a


So when I saw all the stuff about North Florida Broadband
and the federal government sending millions and millions of
"stimulus" dollars to put in high speed wireless internet in
our area, I was like a kid at Christmas. This was the best
thing to happen....ever! We're going to get real internet in
the boonies! I did the Ren and Stimpy Happy happy joy joy
dance. I was thrilled when I listened to the woman from
Suwannee the other night.in the County Commissioner
meeting saying that she was going to try to get "grant mon-
ey" to provide the actual end-user internet to Dixie County
Sure, she'd charge us for it every month--she surely ain't do-
ing all this as a public service--but since Uncle Sam and the
people of Dixie are fronting the cost, surely the government
wouldn't allow her to charge full retail rates. It would have
to be cheaper than the extortion I'm
means it I an and paying Hughesnet now! Joy!


e

does not establish a But I went to Steinhatchee and got my
order to safeguard a error thrown back in my face: there I
kes the revolution in was, standing in Uncle Sam's handout
line, with my greedy little palm out,
ish the dictatorship, waiting for my taxpayer-funded free-
bies, just as bad as any Cadillac-driving
--deorge Orwell Chicago welfare queen. I was ashamed.
_. You shouldn't be taxed at gunpoint to
pay for my web habit. The more I
thought about it, the more wrong I realized that I've been.

What the government funds, the government controls. That's
just a fact of life, like death and taxes. If the government
funds our internet, the government is going to demand to
tell us what we can do with it. CSPAN replayed some of the
National Broadband hearings this week and I watched, and
realized that National Broadband legislation is evil. Sorry,
but there's no other way to put it.

The FCC is going to use the grant funding for wireless to
Dixie County, and all of the other little communities like us,
to take over another big chunk of the economy It won't be
overnight. It'll start small, with promises of "fairness" and
"equality" and then little regulations about routing here,
and little regulations about content over there....and before
you know it, the internet won't be the free-market informa-
tion free-for-all that it is today anymore. Our internet will
be more like China's, where if you type in something
verboten like "liberty," Google will just quietly route you to a
page that lets you know that information on that particular
topic isn't available to you any more. George Orwell
couldn't have imagined a more nightmarish outcome.
So, as much as I want high-speed access, I won't be signing
up for government internet. The price is too high, regard-
less of what it costs.


Madame Editor,


Dear Editor:


There are Angels among us.......... Saturday evening I
stopped by the Shell in Old Town to get gas. When I got
home I realized my wallet wasn't in my purse and I had put
it on the top of my car and drove off. I drove up Chavous
and went home. Well I then panicked and went back to the
Shell, no one had turned it in . After calling and cancelling
all my cards a police officer drove up to my house-- he had
my wallet, cash and all.

A man going up US 19 saw a wallet and stopped to pick it
up. He gave it to the policeman in Cross City The officer
told me his name and I wish I'd wrote it down. You know
who you are and I want to Thank You from the bottom of
my heart.

You are one of my Angels.
Donna .Williams


The Natives are indeed rest-
less. Here in Old Town
they're ready to break out
the
Stars&Bars and search for
living descendants of Jeffer-
son Davis. Though I speak
hyperbolically, the sheer
depth and history of our
present social context is
staggering.

The passionate issue of the
hour is ObamaCare; yet the
genuine issue is OBA-
MADON'T CARE! Our

al is in formal Suit on our
behalf against this legisla-
tive enormity. His Citation

genuine issue is criminal.

make sure their count
comes up short.

Now is the time and this
surely is the place...we are

FWC cites for Illegal
turkey balting/calling


. o DIXIE: Officer Darby Butler
was on foot patrol when he
observed a suspect hunting
turkey over a baited area.
Officer Butler noticed the
hunter using an electronic
calling device to lure
turkey to his location. He
made contact with the
hunter and cited him for at-
tempting to take wild
turkey within 100 yards of a
feeding station and attempt-
ing to take wild turkey by
an illegal method.

GILCHRIS1, Lieutenant Roy
Williams and Officer Todd
Nichols were on foot patrol
when they found an individ-
ual hunting turkey over a
baited area. While the offi-
cers were conversing with
the hunter they heard anoth-
er person attempting to call
turkeys. Lieutenant
Williams located the other
hunter approximately 200
yards away This hunter
was also hunting over a
baited area. Officer Nichols
issued both hunters cita-
tions for attempting to take
turkey within 100 yards of a
feeding station.


Biologists ask public to
report spawning horseshoe
crabs


This spring, biologists with
the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's (FWC) Fish and
-* Wildlife Research Institute
need help from the public to
identify horseshoe crab
spawning beaches through-
out the state.

The best time to find spawn-
ing horseshoe crabs is
around high tide, just be-
fore, during or after a full
moon. The full moon condi-
tions around March 30 and
April 28 will create good
conditions for viewing the
spawning behavior of horse-
shoe crabs.

The FWC asks beachgoers
to report the number of
horseshoe crabs they see
and whether the horseshoe
crabs are mating. Mating
crabs "pair up," with the
smaller male on top of the
larger female. Other male
crabs may be present

LEVY Lieutenant Jay Russel
located two out of state men
illegally hunting turkeys
over bait. The men were
hunting in a blind approxi-
mately 22 yards from an
abundance of freshly
spread millet seed. Several
turkeys were feeding on the
bait when they shot a gob- ,
bler. As they went to re-
trieve the turkey Lieutenant
Russel made contact with
them. The men admitted
that they knew not to hunt
turkeys over bait. Lieu-
tenant Russel issued a
citation for taking wild
turkey within 100 yards of a
feeding station and seized
the turkey

TAYLOR: Officers Chad Albrit-
ton and Clinton Bean con-
ducted surveillance on two
turkey bait sites located on
the same property Officer
Albritton watched two sub-
jects set up seven turkey de-
coys and get into a shooting
house approximately 58
yards from a feeding sta-
tion. After several turkey
calls were heard coming
from the shooting house, the
officers identified them-
selves and cited the two indi-
viduals for attempting to
take turkey within a 100
yards of a feeding station.

use horseshoe crab blood to

have found that no other
test is quite as reliable as
horseshoe crab blood, which
clots in the presence of in-
fectious bacteria. Also, re-
search into horseshoe crab
eyes has given scientists a
greater knowledge of the
functioning of human eyes.

of a woman thing. I'm not
saying you guys out there
are not in touch with your
emotions but you are more
than likely not so quick to
show that side as easily as
women do.

Why was I
emotion-
al? Dave
and I
sold one
of our
quarter
horses this
weekend to a very
wonderful couple.
Buddy has been my
ride since last Au-
gust when I lost
Dusty, my Ten-
nessee Walker, to
cancer. The big fellow and I
were partners for a while. I
must say he took really good
care of me out on the trails
and was always eager to
please. He never once
dumped me or hurt me in
any way He was a good sol-
id partner and he will al-
ways have a piece of my
heart.

The trail ride this weekend
was at home as Dave and I
welcomed a perspective buyr-
er for one of .our quarter
horses. We saddled up
everyone and led our
prospective buyer around
our property to get a good
idea of what we had to offer.
He felt a great connection to

Buddy and Buddy seemed to
like him too. Sometimes you
just connect with a horse
and you know this is the
"one" you are meant to have.
This was certainly true for
our "buyer". He and his
wife were quite taken with
Buddy and they bought him
on the spot.

It does hurt to loose a part
of your family and Buddy
certainly was that for us.
However, it does ease the
pain knowing that he went
to a wonderful new home
and will be ridden by a kind
and compassionate person. I
know this to be
true because
after he had
ridden Bud-
dy and we
returned to
our barn,
this guy actu-
ally kissed his
new horse and
1not his wife.
True love was
found on the spot
and I saw a bond
that would form between a
man and his horse. A bond
of love and respect for both
partners.

The new owners will keep
us posted on Buddy's new
life and home for a little
while as Dave and I were a
bit sad to lose him. It was a
good choice and we are con-
fident that the new owner
will keep Buddy happy.

If you're interested in trail
riding you may contact us at
levy2@flahorse.com.

Until next time, happy trails
to you.

Bonefish and tarpon
harvest reopens April 1

A temporary closure to the
recreational harvest of
bonefish and tarpon from
Florida waters ends on
April 1. The Florida Fish,
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) issued
an executive order on Jan.
16, which established :
statewide closed seasons for
bonefish and tarpon as a
precautionary measure due
to the prolonged cold weath-
er in Florida this past win-
ter. This order expires
April 1.

The minimum size limit for
bonefish is 18 inches total
length, and anglers may
take one bonefish daily An-
glers may'use hook-and-line
gear only to harvest bone-
fish and may not harvest


Gulf grouper recreational
season opens April 1

The recreational harvest of
grouper in all Gulf of Mexi-
co waters off Florida, ex-
cept in all waters of Mon-
roe County, reopens on
April 1.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) closed the
Gulf recreational shallow-
water grouper fishery (gag,
black, red, yellowfin, scamp,
yellowmouth, rock hind and
red hind) on Feb. 1 to pro-
tect gag grouper, which an-
glers often find and catch
with the other grouper
species. This two-month
Gulf grouper spawning sea-
son closure helps to reduce
overfishing of gag grouper


help us identify the butter-
flies that Live in our area.

Last month the March 1st
walk was through the Dixie
Mainline. The woods were
full of Yellow rump War-
blers We saw a number of
Thrushes, Swainsons and
Hermit along with Robins
and two species of Wood-
peckers, Red bellied and
Pileated. We drove the Main-
line and then went to Fish


bonefish commercially

Anglers who possess and at-
tach a $50 tag to the fish
may harvest up to two tar-
pon from state waters daily
Anglers cannot legally har-
vest tarpon from state wa-
ters by spearing, snagging
or snatch hooking, and they
may not sell tarpon.

Even though the FWC is
again allowing the harvest
of bonefish and tarpon, the
agency encourages anglers
to enjoy catclhng and re-
leasing these important
Florida game fish species
and to handle and release
these fish carefully to help
ensure their survival. In-
formation regarding proper
handling and release of fish
is available online at
http://catchandrelease.org/
Catch_and_Release_web.pdf



and rebuild its populations
so larger annual harvests
may be possible in the fu-
ture.

The FWC also reminds fish-
ermen that the recreational
and commercial harvest of
shallow-water groupers (in-
cluding gag, black grouper,
red grouper, scamp, red
hind, rock hind, coney,
graysby, yellowfin grouper,
yellowmouth grouper, and
tiger grouper) remains
closed until May 1 in all At-
lantic Ocean and Monroe
County waters.

were numerous White Ibis,
egrets, an Osprey and a
Kingfisher. But the high-
light of this trip was an ot-

road as we drove slowly

brief glimpse but very excit-
ing.

Mixed bag for the Bears


by Angel Lee
On March 22nd, the Bears
Baseball team took to home
field and played host to the
Branford Buccaneers. Pitch-
er Duane Lord took to the
pitcher's mound as the
Bears defense took their
places in the field. The Bucs
got to bat first, but were un-
able to score any runs and
the Bears were unable to
score any in the bottom of
the inning. Neither team
was able to score any runs
until the bottom of the
third inning when the Bears
pushed 5 runs across the .
plate. The Bears added one
more run in the fourth in-
ning, and it seemed that six
runs was all pitcher Duane
needed as he and the Bears
were able to shutout the
Bucs for a 6-0 victory Kirby
Roberts went 1 for 3 with a
run scored and 2 RBI, Brett
Sullivan was 3 for 4 with a
double and a run scored,
Duane Lord and Nathan
Zeller were both 1 for 3 with
1 double and each had 2
RBI. Kirby Roberts and Jor-


dan Philmon had stolen
bases for the Bears. On the
mound, Duane pitched all 7
innings giving up 0 runs, 0
earned runs, 2 hits and
struck out 8 batters.

The JV Bears also played
the Bucs and came away


with a big 12-1 victory.
Way To Go Boys!


The Varsity Bears hit the
road again, this time travel-
ing to Bronson. The Eagles
managed to come away with
a 3-0 victory over the Bears.
On Thursday night, the
Bears traveled to PK Yonge


to make up the
game that was
rain out earlier
in the season.
The weather
still wasn't
great, but the
game got under-
way. In the top
of the 6th in-
ning, the Bears
had 1 out and
bases loaded,
when the skies
turned dark and
thunder began
to echo over the
field. The um-
pires were
- . forced to stop
the game, and a
few minutes lat-
er called it due
to the weather coming in.
the Blue Wave snuck out a
close on, winning by a score
of 4-0 in 6 innings. The
Bears next game is on April
6th, as both JV and Varsity
travel to Bell to take on the
Bulldogs. GOOD LUCK
BEARS!!!!


The RRMS Rangers defeated the Trenton Tigers on Tuesday.


Dixie Sr. FFA News

Whoa there, Buddy! It seems like we've been
really busy here lately From forestry judg-
ing in Lake
City, to leader-
ship conven-
tions in
Haines City, .
we have been
everywhere!
Before we got
started in the
school year,
we had a din-
ner for our
chapter as a
fundraiser.
Then, we had
the opportuni- �
ty to help out
with Mr. Matt
Cravey's bene-
fit dinner, and ,
we would like --.
to thank
everyone who
helped with
that. Our year continued with several CDE
events. The very first was forestry judging
in Lake City Then, we competed in parlia-
mentary procedure at sub-districts in Bell.


We also had the opportunity to attend the
advanced leadership training in Haines City,
which was a great experience. We kicked off
the New Year with our annual FFA pageant
that was a great success. Then, in February,
we had National FFA Week, full of wacky
dress up days,
and lots of
food for the
sponsors of
our Bull Bash
at the end of
the week. As
we start mov-
ing towards
. the Suwannee
River Live-
S Stock Fair, we
would like to
thank every-
one who has
supported us
this year, and
in the past,
and we hope
that you will
continue. It's
the people like
that make the
difference!

Dixie County Holds
Toxic Roundup
May 1, 2010

Bring household hazardous
wastes such as paint, insecti-
cides, used oil, solvents, fluo-
rescent lamps, used batteries,
old fertilizer, cleaning chemi-
cals and stale gasoline to the
2010 Dixie County Toxic
Roundup. These items are
some of the many household
hazardous wastes that will be
safely disposed of for you.
The Toxic Roundup will be
held on Saturday, May 1 at
the Fire Station in Old Town
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the
Dixie County Court House in
Cross City from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m. Proper disposal of these
products will help prevent
contamination of our water
supply and keep our environ-
ment safe.

Simply bring your household
hazardous wastes to the col-
lection center and the trained
attendants will unload and
handle all your hazardous
wastes; there is no need to
even get out of your car! The
process is quick, easy, and
free of charge for Dixie
County residents and fee
based for businesses.

To transport these hazardous
materials, carefully pack the
hazardous waste containers
in boxes with dividers. If a
container leaks, pack it in a
larger container with an ab-
sorbent material such as cat
lifter or oil absorbent. Do not
mix different or unknown
materials together. All con-
tainers must be labeled. If
you cannot identify the con-
tents label it "unknown."

Do not bring explosives such
as ammunition, dynamite
and blasting agents; reactives
such as crystallized ethers,
picric acid and sodium and
phosphorus metals; infec-
tious wastes; or pressurized
cylinders such compressed
gases.

For more information, call
Joe Ruth at 352-498-1289. The
Toxic Roundup is sponsored
by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
and Dixie County Commis-
sion.

to those enrolled in summer school.

Training is MANDATORY if you plan to sponsor a site.
There is a training session scheduled for Wednesday, April
14, 2010 at 2:30 pm at Dixie County High School Cafeteria.
There should be 4 (no less than 2) representatives from
your organization in attendance.

If you are interested in having a site in your area, please

Thank you to the people of Dixie County
Thanks to all of you for your efforts in getting State Aid to
Libraries Funding restored. There was a tremendous re-
sponse in support of libraries and both houses heard your
voices! Partial funding is better than no funding. The fund-
ing is still millions of dollars short of what it was last year,
and short of receiving full federal funding, which will con-
tinue to affect libraries for the state fiscal year 2013-2014.
The Senate budget is contingent upon the state receiving
additional Medicare funding from the federal government.
Congress has not finalized the appropriation of money to
the states, so we're still waiting. All that to say that news is
better than it was, and once again, THANK YOU!
Cindy Bellot, County Librarian

,w. j, j. Local girls injured in

,,f..: *,a[,. ATV turnover


Casie Geene Douglas, 12,
and Ellie Kate Hodge, also
12, of Old Town both suf-
fered minor injuries after a
four wheeler wreck on pri-
vate property adjacent to
the west shoulder of CR 349
on Thursday evening.

The ATV hit a bump which
caused it to overturn and
ejected both girls. Casie
was transported to the hos-
pital. Neither girl was
wearing a helmet. Since the


accident was on private
property, no charges were
filed.

However, Florida law re-
quires all ATV drivers un-
der 16 years old to wear a
helmet and eye protection.
ATV use is prohibited on
paved roads and non-paved
roads with posted speed lim-
its over 35 miles an hour,
and ATV operation by mi-
nors must be directly super-
vised by a licensed driver.

Between 1982 and 2007, 391
deaths were caused by ATV
use, 89 of those were chil-
dren under 16 years old.

Our Tax Collector, Michelle
Cannon, gave a talk at Cross
City Lion's Club Tuesday.
She chose to follow the gen-
eral outline used by the pre-
vious constitutional officers
who spoke there.

Ms Cannon discussed her
duties in collecting for the
Department of Revenue, De-
partment of Highway Safety,
Motor Vehicles, and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission. Although the
timing was close, her taking
office is NOT related to the
recent large increases in
motor vehicle fees.

She also addressed, "Accord-
ing to law my job is ...; but
really, my job is ..." and "I
am not responsible for the
following even though most
people think I am responsi-
ble for it ...."

One of the more humorous
events that has taken place
during Ms Cannon's tenure
occurred when a man jok-
ingly asked whether "any-
one wanted to buy a vote?"
Some people thought he had
asked about a "boat." Natu-
rally the ensuing conversa-
tion was very lively

Greg and six boys were out
Tuesday and we are planting
our garden in all the

A ay daughter
lovesaything to do with a
hardboiled egg. She loves
egg salad and goes crazy for
deviled eggs. I hate to do
anything with a hardboiled
egg because the shells can
be so hard to remove. I hate
dealing with them so much I
actually almost talked my-
self into buying some of the
pre-shelled boiled eggs they
have on.the market now. I
just couldn't do it. So I de-
cided in honor of Easter and
my daughter, I would do
some research and find the
best way to boil and peel an
egg. I know it seems a no
brainer but if you have ever
experienced a hard to peel
egg where it feels like you
are removing each sliver of
shell one at a time you will
appreciate these tips. There
are some really good ones to
make this chore much sim-
pler and you will not wind
up with an egg with a green
ring around the yolk.

First. Do not start with a
fresh out of the chicken egg.
Most of us don't have that
luxury and buy our eggs
from the store. (If anyone
can fix me up with fresh
eggs, I would appreciate it!!)
Place your eggs in your pot
and cover them with cold
water. Let them sit for a few
minutes until the eggs and
the water are the same tem-
perature. If you place the
cold eggs in hot water the
difference in the tempera-
tures may crack the eggs.

Place the pot on a high heat
until the water comes to a
full boil. Immediately take
' the pot from the heat and
cover with a tight fitting lid.
The eggs will cook from the
heat of the water. The eggs
do not need to be, and
should not .be, boiled. Over-
cooking eggs causes the iron
in the yolk and the sulfur in
the white to combine, and
this is what makes that ugly
greenish color around the
yolk. Let the eggs sit in the
pan in the hot water for.12
minutes for medium eggs, 15
minutes for large eggs and
18 minutes for extra large
eggs. This timing is very im-
portant.

Drain the eggs and fill the
pot with cold water. I like to
empty and re-fill the pot sev-
eral times to make sure the
heat of the eggs doesn't heat
the water back up again.
c You can also put ice cubes in
the water. The water should
be very cold. Letting the
eggs sit in the cold water un-


til the eggs are completely
cooled helps the papery
membrane stick to the shell,
instead of to the egg, and
makes the egg easier to peel.
Let the eggs cool completely
To peel the eggs, gently tap
the large end of the egg
against a hard surface like
your kitchen counter. This
should crack the shell. Turn
the egg and crack the other
end. The shell should peel
off very easily Hard boiled
eggs in the shell can be re-
frigerated up to one week.
Hard boiled eggs out of the
shell should be used right
away.

Now for some tasty treats
with your hard earned hard
boiled eggs!

Peried p De/viLed egOs
8 eggs
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Worcester-
shire sauce
2 tablespoons cream-style
horseradish sauce
1 drop hot pepper sauce, or
to taste
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon dried parsley
flakes, for garnish
1 teaspoon paprika, for gar-
nish
1 teaspoon sweet pickle rel-
ish

Directions
Boil and peel eggs as direct-
ed above. Cut the eggs in
half lengthwise. Place the
yolks into a heave plastic
bag and set the whites aside.
Mash the yolks in the bag
until smooth; add the may-
onnaise, Worcestershire
sauce, horseradish sauce,
hot sauce, relish, salt, and
pepper and mash well.
Squeeze all the yolk mixture
into the corner of the plas-
tic bag; snip a corner off the
bag to create a 1/2-inch
opening. Pipe the yolks into
the egg white halves. Sprin-
kle with parsley and paprika
to garnish.

The only problem with this
recipe is I can't make
enough. They keep disap-
pearing! If you would rather
go an easier route just dice
the eggs up and combine the
ingredients to make egg sal-
ad. If it seems a little dry
just add some more mayo
mix well. My mother in law
used to grate her boiled eggs
with a cheese grater. Makes
it easier to mix and
smoother to spread on a
sandwich.

I almost forgot! I got a won-
derful tip from Krista Camp-


Every week I read your col-
umn and think of things I
could share with you, but ei-
ther I don't get online and
remember to send my ideas
or I read my suggestions the
following week by another
reader. (Great minds think
alike). Yesterday, I was hav-
ing a craving for a piece of
cake...not 'store bought'
mind you, but real, fresh,
home made double-chocolate
cake. I don't eat sweets all
that often and my husband
is a diabetic and cannot
have any, so this is how I
make 'a piece' without let-
ting the rest of the cake go
to waste. I bake a flat cake,
have my piece for dessert af-
ter supper, I have another
one with my coffee the next
morning, then I'm done. Af-
ter that, I put the entire pan
right in my freezer for about
20 minutes...just long
enough for the frosting to
set a little so it isn't still
gooey, then I cut up the en-
tire cake, wrap 2 pieces at a
time in plastic and put all
the portions in the freezer
for the next time I want
something sweet. Now,
whenever I have a.sweet
craving, I take one of the
portions out of the freezer
(it only takes a few minutes
to thaw), then I can have my
dessert after supper with
one piece left over to go with
my coffee the next morning.
I now have a "collection" of
5 different kinds of cakes
waiting for the next 'crav-
ing'. Hey, why don't you
come over sometime, I'll
take out two portions.

Thank you so much Krista. I
wrote her back and told her
I would pass on her idea. My
mother has used this tech-
nique for years but with a
twist. Mama really likes
frozen cake icing not the
cake. So she would freeze
leftover cake and slowly eat
the frozen icing one strip at
a time. She could even get
between layers. No one else
would know about the
frozen cake until months lat-
er someone would be dig-
ging around in the freezer
and would come across a
completely stripped cake
carcass.

I would love to hear from 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 something 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 always be empty
bellies and dirty dishes.
Dust on the table and dirt
on the floor. A little bit of
humor and advice can make
the trip so much easier.

There once was a monastery
that was very strict. Follow-
ing a vow of silence, no one
was allowed to speak at all.
But there was one exception
to this rule. Every ten years,
the monks were permitted to
speak just two words. After
spending his first ten years
at the monastery, one monk
went to the head monk. "It
has been ten years," said the
head monk. "What are the.
two words you would like to
speak?"
"Bed... hard..." said the
monk.
Ten-years later, the monk re-
turned to the head monk's of-
fice. "It has been ten more
years," said the head monk.
"What are the two words you
would like to speak?"


"Food... stinks..." said the monk.
Yet another ten years passed
and the monk once again met
with the head monk who asked,
"What are your two words now,
after these ten years?"
"I... quit!" said the monk.

"Well, I can see why," replied the
head monk. "All you ever do is
complain."
Meaning: Although he spoke
only six words in
thirty years, the
monk did nothing
but complain the
P' II whole time - in his
head. That's why he
IM had nothing better to
say when he had the
chance. All that time
was wasted. Instead
of trying to improve
-himself by silent
meditation on posi-
tive goals, he focused
on the negative, ac-
complished nothing,
and ended up quit-
ting.

When all you hear is
negative comments
every time someone
speaks, you too will begin to
think negatively. Surround
yourself with positive people.
Choose to be with people who
will lift you up, not tear you
down or try to make you see the
world in a bad light. It might
take a little planning but you
can get away from negative peo-

If Easter says anything

to us today, it says

this: You can put truth

stay there. You can

nail it to a cross, wrap

it in winding sheets

and shutit up in a

tomb, but it will rise!

Klaus E Krutzikowsky, 77, of Santa Cruz, CA and
Chiefland, FL, died March 25, 2010 in Chiefland. He was
born on Jan. 10, 1933 in Chicago, IL to George & Hilde-
gard Krutzikowsky Klaus danced, rather than marched
through life, to the tune of a different drummer. He lived
life largely on his own terms. Growing up to immigrant
parents in the melting pot that was
Chicago in the 1930s and 40s . 1:
shaped him. He served his
country and learned to fly
airplanes in the US Air
Force. A true entrepreneur,
Klaus founded and was .
President of American
Sterling Enterprises. He
was in many ways a cre-
ative genius who designed
and built things and came up
with innovative solutions to
problems. He continued to tin-
ker with and fix things up until 1
his last days. His life was rich in expe-
rience. He traveled throughout the U.S., Mexico, Europe,
and South America. 'He loved listening to classical music,
discussing the economy and politics. His views and opin-
ions were his own, his perspectives unique, and he chal-
lenged those around him to think creatively. He was a lov-
ing father who was always supportive and there for his
children. Klaus will be missed greatly by those he loved
and whose lives he touched.

"I think we've been through a period
where too many people have been given
to understand that if they have a
problem, it's the government's job to '
cope with It. 'I have a problem, I'll get a
grant.' 'I'm homeless, the government
must house me.' They're casting their
problem on society. And you know, there
is no such thing as society.
There are individual men and women,
and there are families. And no
government can do anything except
through people, and people must look to
themselves first. It's our duty to look
after ourselves and then, also, to look
after our neighbour. People have got the
entitlements too much In mind, without
the obligations.
There's no such thing as entitlement,
unless someone has first met an
obligation."
