Tuesday morning
Old Town accident
causes
serious injuries


Expectant mom Jessica
Shyer, 27, didn't think twice
when she saw smoke com-
ing out of the trees near
the intersection of US 19
and CR 349. She realized
that there ,had been an acci-
dent, and calling on her
Army training, called 911
and then made her way
through the trees to assist
the wounded man trapped
inside the car. "He was
alert." Jessica's mom said,
"but he was freaking out."
Jessica pulled branches off
the car and stayed with the
driver, but put herself--and
her unborn baby-- at risk
from unidentified but
strong-smelling chemicals
that she said were in the
car. The driver of the vehi-
cle, Joe Brody, was known
to Jessica. and she thinks
that seeing a familiar face
might have helped him get
through until the para-
medics arrived. "It was in-
credible how fast they got
there," she said. "It was
just a few minutes."

According to Mhs. Shyer. the
driver appeared to have
had an epileptic seizure
prior to the accident. He
was airlifted to Shands for
treatment of his injuries.
The accident is under in-
vestigation.

Cross City has rash of home invasions

DCSO seeking armed, thinly built black man


In the early morning hours
of Friday April 2, 2010,
deputies responded to a resi-
dence off of NE 198th Street
in Cross City in reference to
a Home Invasion Robbery. It
was reported that the victim
heard a knock on his door
and when he went to the
door and looked out, he ob-
served a black male at the
door who looked like some-
one he knew. When he
opened the door, he realized
it wasn't who he thought it
was and that the black male
forced his way inside and
robbed him of cash that he
had with him. The suspect
was described as a black
male with a thin build and
medium complexion.

On Saturday morning, April
3, 2010, the Sheriff's Office
again responded to two addi-
tional home invasion rob-
beries where a black
male used various
methods of getting the
occupants to open the
door where he was
then able to gain en-
try fnto the home.
In both of these in-


cidences, the suspect left the
home when he was unable
to retrieve any cash from
the victims. Saturday morn-
ing's home invasions oc-
curred off of NE 97th Street
and NE 210 Avenue in Cross
City Both victims gave a
similar description to Fri-
day morning's yic-
tim in describing
the black male
with a thin
build. Al-
though in all
three inci-
dents, the sus-
pect indicated
he had a
firearm, he
only brandished
it and threatened
one of Saturday
morning's vic-
tims.


Sheriff's investigators and
the Cross City Police are ac-
tively working on suspect
leads at this time and are
continuing to gather infor-
mation related to the three
cases. Sheriff Dewey Hatch-
er and Chief Wesley Jones
want to remind residents
that should they
have suspi-
cious visitors
at odd hours
of the night
and morn-
ing, that
they should
call law en-
fori-cement
before open-
ing the door to
anyone.

Commission sets dates


for reef, builders workshops


Thursday's regular County
Commission meeting was
mostly business as usual,
with the bulk of the meet-
ing consisting of reports by
various department heads.

Charlie Fornic-
ciari appeared
to ask the Com-
mission to set a
date for a public
meeting to dis-
cuss the possi-
bility of getting
funding for an
artificial reef off
of Dixie's coast-
line. He empha-
sized the draw-
ing power of
tourism, and
that local kids
could get in-
volved in the
building and
placement. The
meeting was set B
for Thursday,
April 15th, prior to the next
meeting at 4:00 pm. All in-
terested people are invited
to attend.

The Commission, acting as
Zoning Board, approved a
motion to reduce setbacks
from 25 feet to ten feet on
two lots owned by Barbara
Singer in Suwannee River
Heights Subdivision.

Hoyt "Buddy" Lamb made
his first appearance as the
new Suwannee Water and
Sewer manager, reporting
that he's "been busy trying
to get up to speed on all the
issues out
there." He
noted that
Suwannee's
been having
some van-
dalism is-
sues with a
well, and
that "every-
thing is go-
ing well,
with just
normal, day-
to-day
leaks."

A workshop
for building
contractors
dy Lamb to update
them on
new enforcement proce-
dures from the Building and
Zoning office was set for
April 13th at the new Coun-
ty E.O.C. building on US 19�
behind Fred Sabback pho-
tography. The workshop
will be held at 6:30 and
County Clerk Dana Johnson
promised to bring sand-
wiches for participants.


Senator Bill Nelson will be holding-office hours to

ribbon cutting


County Commissioners, em-
ployees and guests attended
the ribbon cutting on the
new, improved Shired Island
Park on Thursday afternoon
at 3:00.


The new grant-funded facil-
ities will provide a better ex-
perience for Dixie's visitors
and residents, and may in-
crease tourism to the area.


Easter basket winners


The winners of the Advocate Easter basket contest were
Miss Lily Doxtater and Mr. Seth Ramsey. Lily plans to

Memo to Congressman:

Islands do not capsize

Please understand that I am just trying to be helpful
here. Our esteemed editor, who shares my concern in
this matter, felt that perhaps I possessed a sufficient de-
gree of sensitivity to address this issue in a way that
would be appropriately inoffensive.

It seems that United States Representative Henry C.
"Hank" Johnson Jr., a Democrat who represents Geor-
gia's 4th congressional district, recently made an "on
the record" statement to the effect that the Pacific island
of Guam was in danger of "capsizing," due to the weight
of some additional 8,000 military personnel and their de-
pendents who are scheduled to be stationed there in the
near future.

For the benefit of those unfamiliar with nautical terms,
to "capsize" is to alter a floating vessel's presumed verti-
cal status by at least 90 degrees, thus abruptly disorient-
'ing cargo and crew and depositing those unfortunate
enough to be on the top deck in the body of water in
which this phenomenon takes place. The congressman
was kind enough to explain this to Admiral Robert
Willard (who commands the Pacific fleet) during a re-
cent congressional hearing.

We.must i'emember that the people "we" (and I'm refer-
ring here specifically to the voters in Georgia's 4th con-
gressional district) elect to the United States House of
Representatives are not expected to be experts in mat-
ters relating to the military-though Congressman John-
son is a member of the Armed Services Committee and
the sub-committee on military personnel. Furthermore,
it is not clear that Congressman Johnson's background
would indicate that he should be familiar with the dif-
ference between a land mass, such as an island, and a
boyant object, such as a boat, ship, log, alligator or rub-
ber duckie, the last three of which do not capsize. A log
may become "water-logged" and sink, an alligator may
voluntarily submerge, and a rubber duckie may spring a
leak and drift off into obscurity, however only boats and
ships capsize. Islands, logs, alligators and rubber duck-
ies do not.

History indicates that islands have been known to sink
into the sea (or other body of water). Some believe that
Sodom and Gomorrah sank into the sea (presumably the
Dead Sea), however Genesis chapter 19 would indicate
that they were pretty well relegated to irrelevance while
still on dry land, and in any case, archeologists think
they have found remains of that decedent region. It is
thought that the "lost continent" of Atlantis sank into
the sea, but we don't know for sure that there ever was
such a place, though we see a tourist attraction by that
name advertised on TV every now and then. My favorite
"sinking island" story has to do with my late Uncle Jere-
miah, who bought a small island off the Gulf coast near
Pensacola back in 1938. It was a pretty little patch of
land, or at least it was when he bought it, which was at
low tide.

But, I digress. So, let's' give Congressman Johnson the
benefit of the doubt and assume that he just used a poor
choice of words in describing what he thought would
happen if 10,000 or more people showed up on Guam all
at once. Still, you might wonder how this fellow man-
aged to get elected to Congress; but I will admit, I would
have voted for him, had I lived in his district. After all,
be was running against the ultra-leftist Cynthia McKin-
ney, whose congressional career took a short hiatus after
a run-in with a security officer at an official function. A,
guy who can do that can't be all bad.

He probably just needs to get a new script writer, and
maybe borrow a couple of teleprompter screens from
President Obama.

I r. Guy had me on Prednisone last week for
Asthma; and boy I was wound up like a
squirrel on crack. I'd take my Prednisone in
the morning with the better part of a pot of
coffee and I'd work like a crazy woman all day I'm sure
Danielle got tired of me bouncing around the office and
talking ninety to nothing. Well, she'll be relieved that the
Prednisone is all done and sadly, oak tree pollen season is
still here, so I'm taking allergy medicine now. The bouncing
part is over. O-V-E-R.

I've gone from Tigger mode to Eeyore in like one day. I
apologize in advance to anybody I may be
talking to when I fall asleep mid-conver- It's hard to do it bi
station. Just cover me up and walk away people in the e
people in the ey
I'm sort of dragging myself around, forc- irresponsible
ing myself to do stuff In all honesty, I ' gonna wanna do
can't blame it all on the allergy, season;
I'm just lazy You'd notice if you came what poverty is, I
over. There are dishes on the counter, and In this country, yi
the floor really needs to be mopped. The get edu
laundry is starting to pile up. I'll get to it
tomorrow, I keep telling myself. Sure J,
will. But the washing machine is just.so
far....and I'd rather just sit here and stare
longingly at reviews of the new iPad.
Maybe a nap would be nice. I'll cleah tomorrow.

Everybody goes through lazy phases, I think. The trick is to
shake them off and get done with what's got to be done,
right? The ability to shake off the lazy fit and get on with it--
not talent or smarts-- is what separates the winners from the
losers, in my humble opinion. (Or as the kids say it,
"IMHO.") The only thing that works for me is to just get up
and force myself to do the first thing. I'm more than a little
obsessive-compulsive, so once I get going on that first thing,
I have to get done. So then I do the next thing.

There's this really neat system called Fly Lady for we lazy
folk who are well, let's say not enthusiastic about house-
work. Fly Lady is really big on baby steps, and doing just a
little bit each day If you' sign up, she'll send you annoyingly
cheerful little email reminders like "Today is nine-fling boo-
gie day!" This means you pick the messiest spot in the house
and you throw away nine things. That's a baby step.

The first, most important things in the Fly Lady system are
a little baffling. The first baby step is to get up and get


Dear Editor:
OLD TIMES THERE...
April is here and with it, Con-
federate History Month. States
across the Old South join Flori-
da in recognizing this as time
of Remembrance. A time to re-
flect on the Honor, the Valor, the
Sacrifice of those who risked
everything for the sacred cause
of Liberty It is an an excellent
opportunity to deconstruct the
shallow distortions and outright
lies that make up 'popular histo-
ry of the Civil War'. Also, in
light of recent events in Con-
gress, we may see just how
much was lost at Appomattox in
1865.

First and foremost, it was not a
civil war; which is defined as
two factions vying for the
same government. At no time
did any Southern State, or the
Confederacy as a whole,never
plot to take over the Federal
Government or rule by force
any Yankee State. To tell the
truth, the South did not want
war at all. Which is why legal
Ordinances of Secession were
passed in a general atmosphere
of Constitutional understanding
going back to 1790. At the time
the President of the United
States, which was not Lincoln,
stated "though I believe the *
Union to be perpetual, to compel
a State by force of arms to re-
main in the Union is not among
the enumerated powers of Con-
gress." So said James Buchanan,
the 15th President. You see, at
that time, the modern doctrine
of Supremacy was nothing more
than an evil dream in the minds
of megalomaniacal politicians
and legislators. It is easy to see
here that our present situation
has roots in the past. Twisted
roots that need ripping out.
The war itself had many causes
and supporting motives, but the
one that truly got our ancestors
hot; the one that caused men
across the South to leave family,
farm and business was this.
They invaded us. We rose in our
millions to defend our Country,
our families, Faith and way of
life. I say we deliberately, for it
is we. Even though the shooting
stopped one hundred fifty five
years ago, the War on our fami-
lies, our Faith and our way of
life has gone on and on.

How about that famous Emanci-
pation Proclamation of January
1863? If Lincoln actually fancied
himself some sort of New World

Moses,why did he wait until 21
months into the war to do it?
More to the point,why did it
only apply ,tqthe Confederacy
while in .the United States
406,000 people remained en-
slaved? Both Congress and the
White House were served by
slaves until 1865. Again here
comes the truth, the only good
thing that came out of the war
was the Thirteenth Amendment
which ended slaVery.period.
They then, through Reconstruc-
tion, began to re-enslave the en-
tire population to a National
Government whose goal since
has been to project and expand
it's power into every single as-
pect of our lives with or without
our consent. And you thought
the War of Northern Aggression
was just a name. The single
biggest casualty in the war was
our Constitution and Bill of
Rights. It remains under attack
to this very hour by the very
same offices of Government;
The Executive and Congress.
Now all of this is History, and if
you doubt my word I can refer-
ence all of it from mainstream
works on the subject. Yet history
is one thing, the past is quite an-
other.
Knowing our past makes the
events of history a very real and
present experience.
Let me tell you a story. In late
October 1862 a thirty one year
.old farmer saddled his horse,
'said goodbye to his wife and
children,(the youngest was a
one year old boy)and headed
south from his 'Kentucky farm
towards Murfreesboro, Tn.
There he sold his horse and took
a train further south into Geor-
gia where he enlisted in the 7th
Georgia Infantry Regiment.
That regiment was subsequently
attached to the Army of North-
ern Virginia. He was shot in a
skirmish with the Yankees out-
side Richmond in the Spring of
1863. His father, old yet hale,
took a train to Richmond and
brought his son's body back to
Kentucky for burial. I know this
because my father told me as his
fathertold him; you see, the
farmer who died at Richmond in
' 63 was my great grandfather,
Charles Wesley Latimer and
that little boy he kissed goodbye
was my grandfather. So there it
is, while they're busy stealing
everything else, don't let them
steal our history.
Timothy Latimer, Old Town


Dear Editor
There is a very short prayer that was written by a couple of
drunks a good long time ago that goes something like this:
"God, grant me the knowledge to know the things that I can-
not change, the courage to change the things that I can and
the wisdom to know the difference." In the vernacular, that
means "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face." Get the
damn high speed Internet!!
Your Pa


dressed, "all the way to tie-up shoes." Not velcro, ties. She's
very specific about that. I think it's because once you put
them on, lazy folk are too lazy to take them off, so the odds
are you'll at least have shoes on if you trip and fall in a pile
of hoarded pizza boxes and the paramedics will be able to
pull your dead, bloated, cat-nibbled body out of the rubble
by your Reeboks. (Yeah, I watched an episode'of Hoarders
yesterday. Does it show?)

The second step is to shine your sink. Every day. First thing
in the morning and last thing at night. I'm not quite sure
why having a shiny sink is so important, but it does make a
good "first thing" to kick your butt into gear during a lazy
phase.

cause you gotta look Of course, to shine the sink, you have
to get all the dishes out of it. Which
and tell 'em they're means you have to put them some-
and lazy. And who's where, so you have to clean out the
hat? Because that's dishwasher and then re-load it. Then
you have to clean off the counter to get
dies and gentlemen. all the dried kool-aid stains and cookie
u can succeed if you crumbs and to find the sink-shining
ated and work hard. stuff. So I can sort of see her point. One
tiny little step leads to bigger, better
Period. steps. And if you stick with it, and do a
--Bill O'Reilly just a little every day, she promises that
"in ten minutes or less, your house will
always be company-ready!"

I've always been secretly jealous of this girl I went to school
with...she's one of those people who is up at three in the
morning while everybody else is asleep, vacuuming under
the couch cushions and taking all of her dishes out of the
cabinets and sterilizing them or something. She washes her
car twice a week. You know the type. It breaks my heart that
I missed that obsessive-compulsive cleaning gene, and in-
stead I got the can't-walk-past-book-or-yarn-store version.

Sadly I dropped out of Fly Lady. It was too much work. (She
writes a column, by the way, let me know if you'd be inter-
ested in it and I'll get it for the Advocate.) I never managed
to shine my sink in the morning because I have to get to
work, and I never could at night because I had to get the
kids bathed and to bed, and well, it just didn't happen.
That's pretty pathetic, I know. Apparently, I'm too lazy even
for baby steps. I can tell you, because you're my friend, and
won't tell anybody how indolent I am, will you? See? I knew
I could trust you. It's our secret. Whew! Writing all this wore
me out. I think it's siesta time. Go forth, my friend, and have
a lazy day. :P


Dear Editor:

The thought goes out to any and all concerned citizens that
are whining about how many taxpayer dollars are being
spent on the census each 10-years (which is-millions!) My-
political platform is to guarantee a cut in spending.

The plan is for each citizen to send in their simple census
form on time. This would save over 2 months of work now
being performed by thousands of hired workers to go door
to door to obtain the answers to the simple, non-threatening,
non-infringement of their privacy questions. IF this would
have been done this 2010 year, the census would already be
totally completed. As it stands to date, July looks like a good
guess for the data collection to be done!!!!!

April 2010


"Hallelujah"! What a beauti-
ful Easter weekend. Now we
can really say that SPRING
has officially sprung. Take a
good look around your
neighborhood. Lots of aza-
leas are still in full bloom, a
few Japanese magnolias are
showing off, clusters of
lavender wisteria droop off
of fences, delicate white
bridal wreathe flowers are
flushing, dogwoods and red
buds dot the wood lines and
oodles of fruit trees are in
their flower phase. This is
the time of the year to get
spontaneous, pack a picnic
lunch and take a family ride
to make some memories.

Many people have asked me
these last few days about
fertilizing their yards, so
here goes with a few tips
about feeding techniques
and timing. April is a good
time to refresh and feed
your landscape plants. Most
-common adult shrubs can
handle a 6-6-6 or an 8-8-8 fer-

should be used primarily on
already established adult
trees and with great caution
on certain flowering shrubs.
Azaleas, camellias and gar-

rule as they require an

as the amount to apply, the
general rule is about one ta-

You'll need to read the labels

fertilizer directly on or
touching the base of the
trunk of the plant. Spread
the granules evenly around
the plant where the roots
can benefit the most. Anoth-
er good idea is to lightly wa-
ter the fertilizer into the '
ground to initiate the ab-
sorption process. Water at
the base or under side of
the shrub and do not water
after 4-5 p.m.. These prac-
tices will help avoid prob-
lems with fungus and black
spot (especially on roses).
Take extra precautions with
seedlings, young annuals
and veggie transplants. Nev-
er use a strong fertilizer or
fresh animal manure on
these tender shoots because
the baby root hairs are su-
per sensitive. My last tip is
to avoid over watering! In
general, it is. a good thing to
keep the soil damp, but not
soaking wet.

The bottom line is: if you
are in doubt as to the type of
fertilizer to use, where to
place your plant, or when to
plant - get professional an-
swers to insure your suc-
cess. Call your county exten-
sion agent, surf the web or
talk to a trained profession-
al at a local certified nurs-
ery The goal is to be suc-
cessful and enjoy your gar-
den. So go soak up some
God given sunshine, put a
smile on your face when you
see the results and then
pass on the smile to a neigh-
bor as they take a stroll in
your garden.

Happy Smiling!

Traoi Ri ers


By Bonnie WIlson
This weeks trail rides was
one at home. After selling
Buddy last week to a really
nice couple, Dave and I were
able to go to Bristol Florida
and bring Coby home. I was
overjoyed to say the least.
Excitement ran rampant
throughout our house. At
least it did for me. It was the
holidays all rolled into one
and I felt like the prover-
bial child on a sugar high
the night before Christmas.
I did try to contain
myself but I really don't
think I pulled it off that
well with Dave. As we head-
ed out to Bristol on a cool
morning, I had my coffee
mug filled with aromatic
coffee just the way I like it
in one hand and a good
book to read for traveling
time during the trip in the
other. I was prepared to pass
the time away quickly I
sipped my coffee and pre-
pared to dive into the pages
at hand, however my book
could not compete with the
subject racing round in my
mindAHey Dave how close
are we now?" It's only been
five minutes since you
asked last and we have not
left Cross City yet". Oh Boy,
this is going to be a long two
and a half hour trip! I
looked at my book and
again I put it down. My
thoughts were still whirling
round my head. Would Coby
still like me? Would he re-
member me after three
weeks?
The trip continued
to stretch on for me, but
soon we were finally there.
A quick phone call to my
friend Ann, just to let her
know we had arrived, and
she was waiting for us at
her barn when we finally
came to a stop. I was so ea-
ger to see Coby that I was

soon racing to the paddock
to see him; He was just as
sweet as I had remembered
him to be. I hugged his neck
and gave him a treat in
which he seemed to be hap-
py to see me.
It was just a short
visit with my good friend
Ann and we were heading
back home with Coby The
trip back seemed much
shorter and Dave and I
talked discussing Coby and
his needs on the way home.
Well guy's Coby is
home where he belongs and
we've had a marvelous ride
together around our proper-
ty We have been steadily
getting to know each other
well and I know that soon
we will be really good part-
ners on our trail rides with
the gang.
Coby is eager to
please me and I like that
about him. He is a gentle
soul and I need that from
him. Today as we rode
around our property I could
not help but see him
through the eyes of one
very happy owner. I look
forward to climbing hills,
wading through a creek or
two, and walking through
some of Florida most beau-
tiful forest imaginable.
This is something that I ea-
gerly await with just as
much excitement as I did
before. I have not forgotten
my sweet Dusty and all the
years that Ienjoyed him as
my partner but I do see a
kinship here with Coby that
will help ease the pain of
losing him and also help
make new.adventures and
memories of great trail
rides and camping trips to
come. I really do love trail
riding and If you love trail
riding, and good company
come on out and join us.

Until next time, happy trails
to you.

2009. The analysis shows
that repaying the bonds
needed to finance the short-
falls would cost Florida al-
most $4 billion annually, re-
sulting in a loss of more
than 70,000 jobs. "Should a
major storm hit, Florida
will be forced to borrow
tens-of-billion of dollars -
more money than any state
has ever borrowed - and the
interest payments alone will
suck billions of dollars out
of the state for decades to
come." In 2009, both Citi-
zens and the Florida Hurri-
cane Catastrophe Fund
faced enormous potential
shortfalls, despite the ab-
sence of 2006-08 landfalling
storms, because of artifi-
cially low premiums.


Fanning Springs

Woman Seriously

injured in accident
According to a report from
the Florida Highway Patrol,
Doris Spitzer, 39, of Fanning
Springs, was seriously in-
jured when her 1995
Chrysler car rear-ended a
1998 Jeep driven by Althea
Cook, 43, of Trenton.
Spitzer attempted to avoid
the collision, overturning in
the process and coming to
rest upside down on the
northbound lane of US 19
near NW 167th Place in Fan-
ning Springs.

Spitzer was trapped inside
the car until she was re-
moved by emergency per-
sonel and she was transport-
ed to Shands. Cook suffered
only minor injuries and was
not transported. Spitzer was
not wearing a seat belt and
charges are pending.


Time to apply for wild
hog quota hunt permits

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is accepting
applications through April
12 during its Phase I ran-
dom drawing for quota per-
mits to hunt wild hogs on
selected wildlife manage-
ment areas.

These quota permits are for
hog-only hunts (both still
and dog), where hunters
can use modern firearms.
Many of the new summer
hunts are night-only hunts.
In addition, permits for the
dog hunts allow hunting
with up to three dogs at a
time, two hunters and one
gun.

On several WMAs, quota
permits are required dur-
ing many hunts. A quota is
the maximum number of
hunters allowed on a partic-
ular WMA. The quota
helps prevent overcrowding
and provides a better quali-
ty and safer hunting experi-
ence. Quotas also help con-
trol game harvests, and
they are set based on an
area's size, habitat, game
populations and regula-
tions.

Worksheets for wild hog
quota permit applications
are available at
MyFWC.com/Hunting un-
der "Limited Entry Hunts.'"'

Applying for these quota
hunt permits is automated


through the FWC's Total Li-
censing System, but you
must have an up-to-date $26
management area permit
(unless exempt) before do-
ing so. To apply, take a
worksheet to any license
agent or tax collector's of-
fice or submit an applica-
tion at www.fl.wildlifeli-
cense.com by midnight
(EDT) April 12 during the
first phase of the wild hog
quota application period.

The FWC will post results
for Phase I of the random
drawing no later than April
22 at MyFWC.com/Hunting
under "Limited Entry
Hunts."

The application period for
Phase II of the wild hog
quota hunt permits is April
27 through May 6 and also
will be conducted by ran-
dom drawing. Only those
who were not drawn in
Phase I will be eligible to
apply during Phase II.

The FWC will issue any re-
maining quota permits on a
first-come, first-served basis
during the Phase III appli-
cation period, beginning at
10 a.m. (EDT) May 25. Any-
one can apply during Phase
III, regardless of whether a
person was successful in
drawing a permit during
Phase I or II.

Go to MyFWC.com/Hunting
for more information or to
learn about other limited
entry hunts, application pe-
riods or deadlines.

DIXIE DISTRICT SCHOOLS
SPECIAL FACILITIES
PURSUIT

Dixie District Schools is in
the process of applying for
Special Facilities funding
from the State of Florida to
build a new Dixie County
High School. A recent ex-
tensive facilities study de-
termined that there is a
need for this project. Our
current high school is in
need of many major repairs
and renovation. The main
building was constructed in
1968, and some of the re-
maining buildings were
built as early as the 1940s.

Funding for a new facility
can be pursued from the De-
partment of Education Spe-
cial Facilities Construction
Account program. This pro-
gram provides necessary
construction funds to school
districts with urgent con-
struction needs that lack
sufficient resources, and
cannot reasonably antici-
pate resources to address
these necessary construc-
tion needs. Ruth Rains Mid-
dle School and the new Old
Town Elementary School
were both funded by this
method.

The special facilities ac-
count is funded by the Leg-
islature that develops a pri-
ority list based on statutes
and administrative rules.
Only approved projects
deemed "Critical Need" are
funded after a thorough and
intensive study by the State.
It must also be determined
that the district does not
have sufficient funds for
this specific project.

Prior to developing plans for
the proposed facility, the
school district must request
a pre-application review.
The project will then be re-
viewed and ranked by a Spe-
cial Facility Construction
Committee, which is made
up of:
* Two representatives
of the Department of Edu-
cation,
.* One representative
from the Governor's Office,
* One representative
selected annually by the dis-
trict school boards (Florida
School Boards Association),
and
* One representative
selected annually by the su-
perintendents (Florida As-
sociation of District School
Superintendents).

To determine whether the
proposed project is a critical
need, the committee shall
consider:


a. The capacity of all
existing facilities within the
district as determined by
the Florida Inventory of
School Houses (FISH);
b. The district's pat-
tern of student growth;
c. The district's exist-
ing and projected capital
outlay full-time equivalent
student enrollment;
d. The district's exist-
ing satisfactory student sta-
tions;
e. The use of all exist-
ing district property and fa-
cilities;
f. Grade level configu-
rations; .
g. and any additional
information deemed neces-
sary to complete the evalua-
tion.

If the committee recom-
mends the project, the
school district will submit
the approved site for the fa-
cility. The Dixie County
School Board has already
begun this process, by ap-
proving a property search
committee. The committee
is made up of representa-
tives from all areas of Dixie
County

The Department of Educa-
tion stipulates many addi-
tional statutory require-
ments. The Dixie County
School District is making
every effort to complete
each step of the process.

Once eligibility has been es-
tablished, the district board
must continue to levy the
maximum local discre-
tionary capital outlay mill-
age pursuant to Florida
statutes. The ,District will
also be required to pass a
resolution showing the total
cost of the project, the dis-
trict's three-year capital out-
lay contribution, pledging
all of the PECO (Public Edu-
cation Capital Outlay) new
construction funds, Capital
Outlay and Debt Service
Fund, and 1.5 mills of their
local capital millage for
three years. At the end of
three years, the district
owns the new facility - debt
free.

Dixie District Schools is
planning to have the pre ap-
plicationr process completed
and submitted to the De-
partment of Education be-
fore August 1, 2011. This
will schedule our new high
school facility project to be
in the Legislature during
the Spring, 2012 session. If
' the project is funded by the
Legislature, the district is
required to be prepared to
enter into a construction
contract no later than 90
days after July 1, 2012.


Middle School Teachers Needed:

An erroneous example is a problem solution in which one or
more of the steps are incorrect. For example:

Paul has a bucket of peaches weighing 10.63 pounds. He
needs to use 5.3 pounds to make several peach pies. How
.much will the bucket of peaches weigh after Paul has made
his pies?

Here is James' incorrect answer.
10.63
5.3 '
10.10 pounds
Why is this incorrect? Can you fix it?

Initial studies have shown that presenting students with er-
rors is valuable, as long as students have a basic understand-
ing of the problem domain. Erroneous examples encourage
reflection and critical thinking. They also provide a differ-
ent kind of problem solving opportunity than regular class-
room math problems.

The AdaptErrEx project, funded by the U.S. Department of
Education, has developed materials to support learning of
decimals through erroneous examples. The main goals are
to support deeper, more robust learning and to improve er-
ror-detection skills.


A


All the materials developed on
the AdaptErrEx project will
eventually be freely available
through MathTutor (www.web-
mathtutor.org), a website that
helps middle school students
learn math. Join the team and
use materials for learning deci-
mals free. If interested, contact
bmclaren@cs.cmu.edu to join
the study/project.

Happy 50th


We met as teenagers in 1981. You were 17 and I was 15. We fell in love and were married four years later. I thought I couldn't
love you more. Our children made love complete. Sharing a life with you has been more of dream than reality. I realize now
that I do love you more than I did then. More and more each and every day it grows stronger.

Andy Nichols Third, Derek
Davis Fourth and Nathan
Huffingham Fifth. Mike
Parsell won Heat Race One

five. Daugherty and Brown

A besides being
Eagiffin weekend was the
beginning of our second an-
nual Sheheane garden. Last
year we discovered we don't
have that many uses for cu-
cumbers and since Mr. Man
can't stand anything in the
Sell pepper family that was
r a waste of space. So we have
I devoted most of the space to
tomatoes. I adore tomatoes. I
was able to can about 50 jars
last year which didn't last
very long. I must-be honest
with you if you are garden-
ing to can or freeze to save
money give it up. But if you
are doing it for the quality,
taste and the incredible
sense of satisfaction you
can't beat it! It is such a sat-
isfying feeling seeing all
those cans lined up on my
counter and knowing that
we did it from beginning to
the end.

We also planted some egg-
plants. I am typing this with
-my nose crinkled cause I
have to be honest with you I
am not a big eggplant fan.
We have yellow crooked
neck squash, zucchini plants
and okra. If you haven't
tried pickled okra you are
missing a treat. As I have
discussed here before if I
can't get Mr. Man to agree to
with a plant in the yard
"something" fatal happens.
Weed eater accidents, out of
control lawn mower, you
name it, it has occurred.
Last year I wanted to plant a
herb garden with the regu-
lar garden but he just wasn't
into it. This year we hegoti-
ated and I planted some
herbs in pots out the back
door. I am so excited! I may
not have mentioned that I
can kill a plastic plant so his
cooperation is essential. I
made asparagus with some
fresh oregano. and rosemary
last night. I hath, hate, hate
yard work but love anything
that has to do with produc-
ing food. This is the only
time of year he can get me


Last year we had a bumper
crop of squash and while I
am a squash lover, after a
while the same recipes get
old. I found this one and we
fell in love. I made it three
times in one week.

ScLuaslh aiA ZC hi.vi
c-alees

3 medium zucchini
3 medium yellow squash
1 cup toasted bread crumbs
1 cup shredded Parmesan
1/3 cup Vidalia onibn
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 % teaspoon dried Italian
seasoning
% teaspoon salt
* teaspoon ground black
pepper
'% cup (1 stick) butter

Grate zucchini and squash
with a fine grater. Press be-
tween paper towels to re-
move excess moisture.
In a medium bowl, combine
grated zucchini and squash
and next 7 ingredients.
Shape mixture into 2 inch
patties, pressing together
firmly.
In a large skillet, melt butter
over medium heat. Cook
squash and zucchini cakes 3
to 4 minutes per side or un-
til lightly browned.



I also have a thing about
throwing away food. I hate
to buy fresh items only to
have them turn soft or get,
well "yucky". I looked up
several ways to help main-
tain fresh produce for a few
more days and was delight-
ed to find quite a few. Ba-
nanas are our big thing
around here. Mr. Man eats
6te banana every day. Some-
times the kids go through a
banana eating stage and I
can't keep them in the
house. Some weeks they just


Log Cabin
Quilters


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 1, 2009 at the
Levy County quilt Museum. Alice Mae has hemmed the blue
and white quilt and did a great job. Many of our northern
ladies have gone back to the cold and wet homes but we know
they will be back.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday and our gardens are
really growing. So far they liave planted cucumbers, squash,
tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower. After they clean the
weeds out of the flowerbeds, they plant. We look forward to
using our vegetables as we know where they cam from.
We have another quilt almost ready to take donations on.
It will go to the Genealogy Society to help buy things for the
library.
Thursday lunch was enjoyed with noodles and green veg-
etables, beans and potatoes, peas, beef sausage, deviled eggs,
potato salad, bean salad, bread and butter, chocolate pies,
Lois's chocolate desert and lots more.

sit there getting browner
and browner. I got an e-mail
from Mrs. Retta Reed a
while ago that suggested you
separate the bananas from
the bunch. It works. They
don't brown as quickly and
stay fresher longer. This
next tip I haven't tried but
am going to this week. You
take a large bowl and place 1
tablespoon white vinegar
and a sprinkle of table salt
and let the fruits and vegeta-
bles soak. This is for thick
skinned items like grapes,
squashes, apples, citrus, etc.
It s a disinfectant and is sup-
posed to extend their fresh-
ness. You are washing them
anyway so why not add a
simple extra step? You are
saving money and, that is a
good thing!

By the way I got some great
responses about the egg col-
umn last week. I'm glad the
suggestions helped and sev-
eral of you really enjoyed
the recipe. I also got two
leads on some fresh egg
sources so I am a happy
chick! So this week I'm beg-
ging you guys for some can-
ning or recipe ideas. Tomato
sauces or salsa. Someway to
use the eggplants. Any tasty
ways you utilize your gar-
den bounty!

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. Noth-
ing 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 ad-
vice can make the trip so
much easier.

An old Japanese woman went
to the village doctor and con-
fessed to an embarrassing prob-
lem. "I pass gas all the time,
Doctor, but they're soundless,
and they have no odor. In fact,
since I've been here, I've passed
gas no less than twenty times.
What can I do?"
"Take these pills three times a
day for seven days and come
back and see me in a week."
Next week the upset old woman
marched into the Doctor's
home. "Doctor, I don't know
what was in those pills, but the
problem is worse! I'm passing
gas just. as much, but now they
smell terrible! What do you
have to say for yourself?"
"'Calm down," said the doctor
soothingly. "Now that we've
fixed your sinuses, we'll work
on your hearing!!!"
Meaning: Others often notice
things about us that we do not.
Sometimes we do not realize
that the things we do can be an-
noyming to others. If we know
we have a problem, others
know there is something wrong
too. We need to confide in
someone we trust and get their
perspective so they can help us
see the whole problem. Then
we can do something about it.
Our models who helped tell
this story are: Jana Valentine
and Charlie Turner

The Old town Red Hat Chicks had their meeting on March
30th at the Steinhatchee Falls as a picnic. Our host for the
month was Sharon Fronk who did all the meal planning
and did a wonderful job, we did not lack for anything. The
weather was great and the bugs did not eat us alive. Sharon
brought her Rhoades pedal car for us to pedal around at the
Falls, what a fun vehicle that was. After lunch the girls
played cards. Check on us next month and see where we
venture out to. Till May.

Aries

Your confidence, energy and
sexuality soar this month
with the sun in your sign un-
til the 20th. The new moon in
.your sign on the 14th super-
charges you for success and
helps in every area of your
life. Enjoy! You will need to
exercise tact when the moon
is full in Scorpio on the 28th.

Taurus

There's only one negative to
an otherwise great month,
Taurus: Mercury turns retro-
grade on the 17th requiring
cautious communication.
Venus is in your sign until
the 25th opening doors and
allowing you to be utterly
charming. You will find the

changes by the new moon in

full moon in Scorpio on the
28th is totally inspiring!

Leo

April affords opportunities
to take care of business as
well as to have some fun,
Leo. With the sun in fellow
fire sign, Aries, and the new
moon in Aries on the 14th,
you thirst for adventure.
Mercury's retrograde move-
ment begins on the 17th re-
quiring careful communica-
tion. When Venus enters
Gemini on the 25th you turn
on the charm!


Cancer


There are some good reasons
for you to stay close to home
in your spare time this
month, Cancer, especially
during the first two weeks. A
new moon in Aries on the
14th sparks your career. Pay
attention to details in com-
munication when Mercury is
retrograde on the 17th. The


Virgo

Perhaps the best astrological
news for you, Virgo, is that
Venus is in earthy Taurus
from the 2nd until the 25th
providing a wonderful oppor-
tunity to take a trip or plan
something romantic. Not
only will you communicate
effectively around the full
moon in Scorpio on the 28th
but others will also look to
you for advice. Be empathet-
ic!

Libra

A Mercury retrograde begin-
ning on the 17th requires you
to communicate precisely, Li-
bra. Other-than that, April
offers lots of positive oppor-
tunities especially in rela-
tionships, creative endeavors
and romance. The new moon
in Aries on the 14th and
Venus entering Gemini on
the 25th open doors in both
your career and love life!

Scorpio

The full moon in your sign
on the 28th will be great for
taking an in-depth assess-
ment of who you are and
where you want to be! Prior
to that date, your relation-
ship, whether it's marriage,
friendship or a partnership,
should be your focus when
Venus is in Taurus from the
2nd until the 25th. Be open to

Sagittarius

The new moon in Aries on
the 14th emphasizes a very
enjoyable and creative time.
April will be busy, Sagittar-
ius, and may test your ability
to go with the flow especially
when Mercury goes retro-
grade on the 17th. Patience
and effective communication
are a must! Staying upbeat
and active wins the day.

Capricorn

A natural and smart choice
this month will be home and
family, Capricorn. Be aware
of possible glitches in com-
munication when Mercury
goes retrograde from the
17th until May 11th. You will
shine both socially and ro-
mantically from the 2nd un-
til the 25th: make the most of
,it!

. Aquarius

The new moon in Aries on
the 14th inspires your cre-
ativity, and boosts your com-
munication skills. However,
effective communication will
be a challenge beginning on -
the 17th when Mercury is
retrograde. Best news is that
Venus enters fellow air sign
Gemini on the 25th marking
one of the most romantic
times for you all year!

Pisces

Deep thoughts, introspection
and spirituality issues, may
occur around the full moon
in Scorpio on the 28th. Your
self-expression is enhanced
while Venus moves through
Taurus from the 2nd until
the 25th, and others will no-
tice your talent. Careful
communication is a must be-
ginning on the 17th!

Pentecostal Holiness

Church News

What a beautiful Easter
Sunday Let us rejoice that
Jesus died on the cross and
rose again that we could
have life. The hours before
Jesus crucifixion were ex-
tremely painful for him, yet
he faced the sacrifice with
love, courage, and
conviction so great that he
willingly gave up his life for
us. "For God so loved the
world, that he gave his only
begotten son, that whosoev-
er believeth in him should,
not perish but have ever-
lasting life. John 3:16 (KJV)

And as the hands of Jesus
opened for' the nails, the
doors of heaven opened for
'us. On Easter morning Je-
sus rose from the dead,
heaven sounded "Reveille,"
and Christ's promise was
fulfilled- "Because I live, you
will live also." So you see,
just as death came into the

First Baptist

Church of

Steinhatchee
* This week we
celebrated...Easter and yes HE
IS ALIVE! Remembering JE-
SUS'S death gives us courage
for today and hope for tomor-
row! After the horrible beating
and cruel treatment of HIS
body, soul and mind...JESUS
was hanging on that cross, suf-
fering for you and me. Our sins
put our precious SAVIOR
there! Matthew 27 and 28 tells
us, after HIS death of three
days, HIS bruised and broken,
body was laid in,that tomb to
decompose! That huge stone
was placed there and it was
sealed! Pilate put his guards by
the sepulcher to keep watch!
Those that loved JESUS stilled
lingered, until only Mary Mag-
dalene, a forgiven woman re-
mained still worshiping THE
SAVIOR. Through the activity
of the LORD, verse 2 of.
Matthew 28 says: And behold,
there was a great earthquake:
for the angel of the LORD de-
scended from Heaven, and came
and rolled back the stone from
the door, and sat upon it. JESUS
was not there, only a napkin or
cloth remained. Only Mary
Magdalene witnessed this great
miracle from GOD! Verse 6
says: "HE is not here: for HE is
risen, as He Said. Come, see the
place where the LORD lay Yes,
JESUS IS ALIVE!! Are you
looking for something in your
life? Are you empty? Is your
soul hollow and cold? Do you
endure troubled days and a life
full of problems andtrials?
Maybe your life if dddd? dark,
dull, difficult andrdried up? BE-
CAUSE JESUS LIVES you do
not have to live in that valley!
Come to church and meet JE-
SUS today! JUST A THOUGHT:
Without CHRIST....you do have
a need! How many people in
your life...will you diefor? i .
cross + 3 nails= 4 givei,
* We all rejoiced thatgRe .
grandson of Brenda afdd Dixie
Southerland, Jonathan Kirwin
gave his heart to the LORD on
Easter Sunday, April 4,20Q10.
Jonathan is eleven years old.
He and his mother, Sherry Du-
bose lives down in Coral
Springs. GOD gives us chb ildren
for a short time, to train them
and help them walk GOD'S
way! To love them and teach
how to follow and obey HIS
will! JUST A THOUGHT�;.The


world through a man
(Adam) resurrection from
the dead began through
another man, (Jesus Christ).
Christ was raised first; and
when he come's back again,
all his people will be raised.
He is Risen, He's Alive, and
he lives forever more. Hal-
lelujah!!!

FAITH BAPTIST

CHURCH NEWS

God really blessed us with
a beautiful, spring day for
Easter. Our crowd was
large, the services were
great and the entire day was
outstanding. The weather
was the best we had had
since all the cold of this past
terrible winter. After the
morning service, we had
lunch in the fellowship hall
and not only the lunch, but
the fellowship was fabulous.
If you missed it, you truly
missed a blessing. The chil-
dren enjoyed a big Easter
Egg Hunt immediately after
the noon meal and it was a
pleasure watching the little
ones 'hunting the eggs.

We were able to take lots of
folks off of our prayer list,


and only added a few. God
has been so good to us.

There were lots of visitors
and an abundance of food.
We want our visitors to
know we were so happy to
have them with us, and we
pray they will come back
again soon. If you were,one
of them and were looking
for a church home, we wel-
come you to become a part of
the Faith Family

Remember this week to pray
for the less fortunate, the
sick, the bereaved and most
of all the LOST. Invite some-
one to come to Sunday
School and Church and let's
see how many we can see
saved. God will bless you for
it and the angels in heaven
will be so happy Until next
week, we will be praying for
you.
