by the State of Florida, Dix-
ie County added 54 jobs
during the month of
March, bringing the unem-
ployment rate down to
13.2% from February's
13.8%. Last year, during
March, the jobless rate was
just 10.2%. This ranks Dix-
ie as the county with the
14th worst unemployment
rate in the State. Levy

SRWMD increases burn budget by $140K


The Suwannee River Water
Management District's gov-
erning board voted to in-
crease the budget for pre-
scribed burning by $140,000
at a board meeting April 13.
Funding for the increase
will come from revenue
from timber sales on Dis-
trict lands.

The District has exceeded
its amount of acreage tar-
geted for this fiscal year due
to above-average rainfall ex-
perienced earlier this year.
Though 10,500 acres were
identified for burning, to
date, 13,922 acres have been
burned on District lands. Of
that total 3,812 acres were
burned by the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry on Twin
Rivers State Forest, proper-
ty owned by the District and
managed by FLDOE

"Current weather patterns
continue to provide optimal
burning conditions which
should allow burn man-


agers to maintain their mo-
mentum to conduct pre-
scribed burns," said Scott
Gregor, District natural re-
source specialist and pre-
scribed burn project manag-
er.

The District has identified
3,000 additional acres on
several tracts of land
throughout the District for
prescribed burning through
-Sept. 30, the end of the fis-
cal year. Controlled burns
have been targeted for the
following counties this fis-
cal year: Lafayette, Dixie,
Taylor, Suwannee, Jeffer-
son, Hamilton, Columbia,
Levy, Madison and
Gilchrist.

Prescribed fire is a land
management tool that main-
tains natural resources and
reduces the risk of wildfire
on District lands.

"Prescribed burning helps
restore and maintain natur-


al vegetative communities
that occur on District prop-
erty," said Gregor. '"Addi-
tionally, many plant and ani-
mal species within those
communities depend on
such activity to maintain
their habitat."

Such species include gopher
tortoises, indigo snakes,
deer, turkey, quail, wire-
grass and native legumes.
Other benefits of controlled
burns include plant disease
control, soil nutrient
restoration and aesthetic
improvement.

On average the District
burns 7,000-12,000 acres per
year. Burn frequency for
each tract of land is based
on fire return intervals -
.how often those areas would
burn naturally. A schedule
of upcoming burns is avail-
able at www.mysuwan-
neerivercom under the
"Recreation" button and
"Important Notices" link.


game on

the road

by Angel Lee

The Bears Baseball team
made their final regular
season-road trip on Thurs-
day when they traveled to
St. Francis to take on the
Wolves. The Bears took to
the batter's box first, and
were held scoreless. The
Wolves were able to score
one run in the bottom of
the inning to make the
score 1-0. The Bears an-
swered right back, adding
two runs in the top of the
second inning. The Wolves
added one more in their half
of the inning, making the
score 2-2. The game then be-
came a pitching / defensive
duel as he game remained
tied right up til the sixth in-


V . .

ning when the Wolves mnan-
aged to score 2 runs in the
bottom 6f the inning. The
Bears were unable to score
anything in the top of the
seventh, and St. Francis
grabbed the victory, winning
by a close score of 4 -2. Du-
ane Lord pitched all 6 in-
nings, giving up 4 runs;4


hits and struck out 3. The
Bears next game is Thurs-
day night at home as they
play host to the Newberry
Panthers on Senior Night.

Please come out and help

Commission flushes


Nature Coast Water Authority


Overstreet family presents print


At Thursday evening's regu-
larly scheduled County
Commission meeting, the
Commission voted to opt
,,out of the Nature Coast Wa-
ter Authority agreement,
saving the County $5,000
that the GUA was demand-
ing as a participation fee.

Opting out of the'agree-
ment will allow the County
to pursue other, less unpop-
ular options, such as form-
ing it's own GUA with
neighboring entities like
the Town of Cross City or
Horseshoe Beach in order
to provide water to Old
Town and outlying areas.
Residents and lawmakers
have expressed concerns
that the NCRWA would have
been controlled by'Gilchrist
and Levy Counties, that wa-
ter would be transported
across the Suwannee River,
and that Dixie's voice would
be drowned out by larger,
more populated areas.

The family of George Wash-
ington Overstreet presented


a print to the Commission
in commemoration of his
service on the Dixie County
Commission back in the
1920's. Mr. Overstreet was
on the Lafayette County
Commission, but when Dix-
ie,,County was split from.
Lafayette, Gov. Cary Hardee
appointed him to be Dixie
County's first Commission-
er for District Five. Mr.
Overstreet's old homeplace
was just south of the Mount
Olive Cemetery, south of
Jena, and fruit trees he
planted remain there to this
day

Phil Bishop, of newly re-
branded North Florida Pro-
fessional Services, appeared
to get conditional approval
on accepting Anderson-Co-
lUnibia's bid on the Belly
Deep Project. Anderson-Co-
lumbia was the only bidder,
and was slightly over bud-
get, but Bishop was "fairly
confident that we can get
the thing in under budget,"
and the project was ap-
proved.

Civil War mis-info persists

It happens every year about this time. Confederate Memori-
al Day (next Monday), the purpose of which is to honor the
South's fallen soldiers; but to hear the establishment media
you'd think we were celebrating slavery and mourning its
demise.

We can either buy that line or we can use the gray matter
God gave us between our ears. We fought a war that cost
over a half-million lives (both sides were Americans) over
the issue of slavery? Then why did the South fire the first
shot? Slavery was the status quo, and the Union armies
weren't marching down here to free the slaves in 1861. As a
candidate for President in 1860, Abe Lincoln went to consid-
erable effort to,let voters know that he was not an aboli-
tionist, and for good reason. The abolitionists were consid-
ered something of a fringe group, even north of the Mason-
Dixon line, and endorsing them would have cost Lincoln the
support of "moderates." There's not a snowball's chance
that Honest Abe got us into one of history's bloodiest wars
because he was hell-bent on abolishing slavery in the
South.

All right, then, if Lincoln wasn't a abolitionist, why did he
abolish slavery? That is something of an exaggeration. The
Emancipation Proclamation was an. executive order issued
in 1862 and it applied only to states that were in rebellion
against the Union --in other words, the Confederate states,
where they were using proclamations from the Union gov-
ernment for bathroom stationery However some slaves who
were in Confederate territory under Union occupation were
freed at that time; but states where slavery was practiced
that did not seceded were not affected. Slavery officially
ended with the passage of the 13th Amendment several
months after Lincoln's death.

The Emancipation Proclamation was essentially a bit of po-
litical PR on Lincoln's part. At a time when the North was
getting war-weary, with a lot of people wondering why in .
blazes they didn't just let the South secede and be done with
it, they needed to be told that, "as (Christ) died to make
men holy," they were to "die to make men free." That way,
they wouldn't start suspecting that the war was based on
economic policy issues between North and South--and nev-
er mind that economic considerations related to trade poli-
cies were exactly why the two regions went to war. At the
onset of the Civil War, slavery was at most a peripheral is-
sue, although its abolition may have been the only positive
result of the war. In the final analysis, though, it is ex-
tremely doubtful that there ever would have been an Ameri-
can Civil War, had slavery been the only thing there was to
fight about.

The practice of slavery was altogether inconsistent with
the principles upon which our nation was founded, and ab-
sent an armed conflict, it is still unlikely that it would have
lasted out the 19th century. This, however, does not alter the
fact that the abolition of slavery was a collateral result of
the Civil War and not the reason it was fought.

Consider: Wars are rarely fought for purposes as noble as
liberating slaves. Certain, though by no means all, revolu-
tions have been fought for noble causes, and these often
evolve into wars. Our own revolt against the tyranny of
British rule in 1776 is a good example. On the other hand,
the Russian Revolution of 1917 is one that the World and
particularly the Russians themselves would have been far
better off without. In any event, to the extent that the
American Civil War was a revolution, the Confederacy
claimed the rebel cause, and their cause was political inde-
pendence, not the perpetuation of slavery

Mr Prater:

I'm not a big Lincoln fan by any means, but this is my
favorite thing he ever said: "Don't interfere with anything in
the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only
safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I
make this appeal, but to all who love these great and true
principles." Too bad all those liberals screaming about peo-
ple who like to dress up and play Yankees and Rebels on the
weekends choose to ignore this inconvenient bit of Lincoln's
wisdom.--ed


Transportation Committee
Chairman James Oberstar
(D-MN) will try to
move the Corps and EPA Wet-
lands Land Grab Bill (now
known in the House as the
America's Commitment To
Clean Water Act but still the
Clean Water Restoration Act
in the Senate.

The Corps and EPA Wetlands
Land Grab will damage
ranchers, farmers, business
owners, landowners, miners,
cabinowners, forestry
advocates, .off highway vehi-
cle users and any users of
private or Federal land. It
will strangle small cities and
communities. It will cost mil-
lions of jobs.

The Corps, EPA and Wet-
lands Land Grab will give
Federal bureaucracies con-
trol over all the watersheds in
the United States. That in-
cludes dry land inside or ad-
jacent to watersheds with wa-
ter underground. That means
everything. Because all land
is in a watershed.

It will use wetlands, clean
water, the Corps of Engi-
neers arid EPA to take control
over every farm, ranch, and
piece of private property
with any water on it even if
you only engage in activities
that might affect water. It will
give the Corps of Engineers
and EPA control over your
land. You'll get tied up in a
nightmare of red tape and
bureaucracy.

You can help immediately by
calling both your Senators at
(202) 224-3121 to ask for a
copy of S 787. Tell them you
are opposed to what you have
heard is in the bill.That will
raise concerns and make
them think twice about vot-
ing for S 787 if it comes to a
vote in the full Senate.

. ? was planning on doing a "hard" news story
S - this week on something I ran across that
bugged me, but to be honest, I just couldn't
work up the necessary detachment to cover it
in a "fair and balanced" fashion, so I'm getting out my
opinion soapbox here. It made me hopping mad, and it takes
quite a bit to get me riled up during these beautiful spring
days. �

Someone came to me, quite distressed, because their power
bill from Progress Energy had arrived, and it was a nasty
surprise. Instead of the usual $300 a month that this hard-
working family normally expects and bud-
gets for, it was more like $1,100. That's ".,.w were infm

families these days, and they paid their Friday, with litI

Progress Energy's computer system...and after Prog
yet I can buy yarn on Ebay from somebody
in New Zealand instantly and it processes


in like fifteen seconds...go figure. Anyway, the power compa-
ny, in its infinite wisdom, and exercising full authority as
the energy monopoly for the Town of Cross City, apparently
flagged these people as risky and demanded an $800 addi-
tional "deposit" without so much as a by-your-leave. It was
just added to their current bill.

Mind you, these are not people who just moved in; they've
been occupying this house, and doing business with this
power company, for at least the last decade. They're a little
bit beyond the "deposit" stage. Yet, this company is de-
manding a huge chunk of cash for services that this family,
has not even used yet...or lose their current service. This is
not an isolated incident; once I started asking around, I
found that this has happened to lots of Progress customers
who live around town, and throughout the state.

I wonder how many people would keep shopping at the gro-
cery store if they charged you for this week's milk and cere-
al, and then just added next week's steak and eggs to your
ticket in advance, because they .doubted that you would have
the money next week to pick them up. Maybe we should im-
plement this system at the Advocate....if you pay your sub-
scription a bit late, maybe we'll just start charging you a de-
posit for for two years of service in advance before you mail
out your next copy. That'd be popular, don't you think?
The thing is, Progress Energy doesn't have to worry about
being popular. If doesn't have to worry about customer ser-


vice--ask anybody from the City Council who has to beg
them to show up for downed power lines or lights out. They
don't worry about public relations, because they have an ex-
clusive franchise, and nobody but the Public Service Com-
mission can take that away from them. So they have carte
blanche to do any dastardly nasty thing to you that they feel
like to you. Don't like it? What are you gonna do? You have
no recourse., except to sell your home--good luck in this mar-
ket!--- and move. Maybe you could buy solar panels...but I
hear they're not all that great for things necessary for some
folk, like air conditioning and oxygen machines.

Too bad, grandma, you didn't need that oxygen anyway, and
Progress Energy is going to get their "deposit" money and
you can share the cat's dinner. Oh, and
rmed that~ since it was you'll never see that money again, ei-
ther, because it's a "deposit" and they
n a holiday, they.might won't apply it to your bill...it's just
ficient crew to put the gone. Of course, I'm sure your heirs
in in time for our Good may be able to get it back if you die,
maybe even with interest,, but until

In the real world of flat tires, job layoffs, busted radiators,
ex's who haven't paid child support in six months (welcome
to my World!) and six year olds who outgrow shoes twice a
week, most people have to just do the best they can. Some-
times bills fall through the cracks and people have to pay on
the last day. And in this economy, a local business should
bend over backwards to try to help people make ends meet
during hard times. Slapping giant fines on people is no way
to be a good business neighbor. I live out in the boonies and I
have Central Florida Electric, and I don't think they do that.
You also don't hear the County government people fussing
about them not showing when they're needed.It's a co-op, so
we ALL own it, and they seem to care what customers think.

I'm told the only remedy for the situation is for the City
Council of Cross City to go before the Public Service Com-
mission and file a complaint asking to end Progress Ener-
gy's franchise. They won't do that unless some squeaky
wheels make some noise. If you care, get to squeakin'. Call
your councilman and let him know you think this is wrong.
Bad business practices, like elections, must have conse-
quences and nobody has a guaranteed seat at the table for
life. Help the PSC remind Progress Energy of that.

By Bonnie WIlson

This weekend our Levy
County Horse Club mem-
bers met at Black Prong for
our trail riding adventure.
We had a good group of
twelve riders who were ea-
ger to hit the trails under
gray, cloudy skies.

I was up early before dawn
to get ready and get our
horses Zip and Coby ready
to travel. The sandwiches
were ready with drinks in
the cooler and I was out in
our barn brushing the hors-
es out from their nights
rest.

This was Coby's first outing
with the gang and I was
anxious to show him off. I
had bathed him and Zip the
day before and I was hoping
their nights rest had not
made them too messy for
our first outing, together.
They didn't look too bad this
morning so with a little
brushing they looked PDH
(pretty darn handsome)!

Black Prong is part of the
Goethe Forest. Trails wind
for 100 miles through three
tracts of this nearly 50, 000'
acre state forest. Riders are
traveling through pine plan-
tations and old growth lon-
gleaf pine where vast forests
have been mowed down for
restoration of the forest
back to a sandhill habitat.
There are three marked
trails of 3 to 10 miles in
length to choose from. We
chose the middle trail being
6 miles for today's ride.

Our group split up into 2
groups with 6 riders in
each. Of course the Paso's
led the way and the rest of
us followed the dusty trail.
Coby was excited to be out
with the group and brother
Zip. I was a bit excited my-

self, this being Coby's very
first club ride. He was a
good boy and I had a won-
derful morning ride. Gray
skies did not darken our
trails or our spirit. It was a
great morning indeed.

Back at the trailhead we
took care of our horses with
hay and water then we gath-
ered round a large concrete
picnic table for a bit of
lunch and a discussion of
what we had seen on our
morning ride. We didri't see
any deer this morning only
a few squirrels playing tag
at the base of a large tree.
We did come across a hiker
that had two big dogs on
leashes. One a German
Shepard and the other a bit
larger, I wasn't sure of the
breed. It was at this mo-
ment that we heard rattling
and some noise coming
through the palmetto bush-
es. I had convinced myself
that it was a turkey when
suddenly out popped the
cutest little pig I had ever
seen. She was white with 2
black ears and one black eye
and an adorable black curly
tail. She looked to be very
young and most likely still
nursing. Okay everybody,
look out for mama! We did
keep an eye peeled for her
but we never saw mom at
all, just our adorable cute
little pig. I threw a piece of
bread for her to sample but
she wanted no part of it.
She came pretty close to us
but never within touching
range. I would loved to have
brought her home, but alas I
could not. I do hope "Miss
Piggy" will make it home
and not to the market!

and taking breath taking
ventures in some of Flori-
da's most incredible forest,

happy trails to you.


Crystal River woman dies in
boating accident

A Crystal River resident
died in.a single-vessel acci-
dent Saturday afternoon in
Citrus County, according
to FWC investigators. Car-
la D. Faul, 25, died when
she fell off the bow of a
boat. She went under the
vessel, and the outboard
motor propeller struck her.

There were seven other
people aboard the 2005 20-
foot Sweetwater pontoon
boat on which Faul was a
passenger. The vessel, op-
erated by Jeffrey Ryan
Lamb, 31, of Wildwood,
was approximately four
miles north of the State
Road 44 Bridge. Lamb was
traveling south at between
5 and 10 miles per hour,
FWC investigators said.

After the prop struck Faul,
two other passengers, Alan
K. McCarthy, 23, and
Michelle Schwab, 29, both
of Bushnell, went into the
water to rescue her.

People placed Faul aboard
the airboat in an attempt
to get her ashore quicker.
The airboat transported
her to the Rutland Park
Boat Ramp at the State
Road 44 Bridge.

Faul's injuries were fatal,
and she was pronounced
dead at the scene.

FWC officials are continu-
ing the investigation.


FWC cites Dixie hunters
for taking turkey, gator

Officer Justin Allen ob-
served a subject hunting

pect was cited for taking
wild turkey within a hun-
dred yards of a feeding sta-
tion.

Teen Summit


Three 7th graders
and a teacher at-
tended the 2010
Teen Summit spon-
sored by NEFEC
and held at the
Florida Elks Youth
Camp in Umatilla,
April 13 - 15. It was
an action packed 48
hours that Tabatha Hagan,
Kilee Glidden and Alexan-
dra Evans and 100 other
middle school students from
the North Central Florida
area, will not soon forget.
The summit is for middle
school students and it is ti
help them develop self - con-
fidence, leadership and
teamwork skills to share
with the other students in
their schools. The highlight
of the summit was a chal-
lenging rope course that re-
quired them to work with
others in order to complete
the course. There were also
sessions held on self - image,
drug education and peer
mediation as well as learn
and serve activities in which


the students identified a
problem in their school and
developed an action plan to
help alleviate that problem.
We also learned a lot of new
games that helped us devel-
op our teamwork skill while
we had fun. The competi-
tions were not held to defeat
another team but rather to
help us achieve a goal. All
the girls and their teacher,
Marie Tucker, are looking
forward to attending the con-
ference next year and they
hope to take more students.
with them to experience this
wonderful event! Many
thanks to our principal, Bev-
erly Baumer, for allowing us
to attend this educational
summit.

Historical Society says
Thank You

The Dixie County Historical So-
ciety had a GREAT Annual Cele-
bration last Saturday at the Dix-
ie County Cultural Center in Old
Town. A wonderful time was
had by all who attended. The
day started at 10:00 a.m. with ap-
proximately thirty vendors set-
ting up on the grounds. The
cooks were busy preparing the
meat for our fund raiser lunch
and the aroma was awesome.
The cabbage for the coleslaw was
donated by Mr. Jerry Fulford and
the coleslaw was prepared by the
Cypress Inn Restaurant. Other
donations were received for our
lunch from Foodland (Cross
City), Hardees (Old Town), and
the Jiffy Food Store (Old Town).
Thanks to all of the vendors for
coming and sharing the day with
us. Thank you also to the busi-
nesses that made donations for
the lunch. A very special
"Thank you" to all the people
who came and enjoyed the lunch.
We do appreciate you.
There was music for all to enjoy.
The groups "Mother's Prayer"
and "Big Cypress Bluegrass"
were-entertaining us throughout
the day Then they came back in
the evening and performed along.
with "Old Time Way" to a most
appreciative crowd.

Gulf sturgeon are begin-
ning their annual migration
back into the Suwannee Riv-
er during April.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) reminds
boaters to slow down and be
aware these fish have start-
ed jumping.

Two people were injured inI
accidental collisions with
jumping sturgeon during
2009.

"Just one person getting
hurt is too many," said Maj.
Lee Beach, regional law en-
forcement commander for
the FWC's North Central Re-
gion, based in Lake City.
"We want people to be
aware the sturgeon are re-
turning, and the risk of in-
jury to boaters does exist."

In 2006, FWC officials began
working on a public aware-
ness campaign to alert
boaters to the risks of jump-
ing sturgeon. "We have
posted signs at each boat
ramp along the Suwannee,
explaining the risk of im-
pacts with these fish,"
Beach said. "We will be

From April 16 through April
25, Florida residents can re-
ceive a rebate on the pur-
chase of energy-efficient ap-
pliances under a new law.

The legislation authorized
the Florida Energy & Cli-
mate Commission to devel-
op and administer a con-
sumer rebate program ex-
pected to generate. approxi-
mately $18 million in federal
funding, which will give
Florida residents a 20 per-
cent rebate on selected ener-
gy efficient appliances.

Consumers will also receive
an additional $75 if they re-
cycle their old appliance, a
measure intended to dis-
courage consumers from
placing their old energy in-
efficient appliance in the
garage. Consumers will ben-


checking those boat ramps
to ensure the signs are still
in place, and our officers
will be on water patrol dur-
ing this period and into the
summer months in a contin-
ued effort to educate boaters
on this issue."

"We recommend boaters re-
duce their speed to reduce
the risk of impact and to
give people more time to re-
act if they do encounter a
jumping sturgeon," Beach
said. "The FWC also recom-
mends that all boaters wear
their life jackets."

"I have seen these collisions
referred to as 'attacks.'
However, these fish are in
no way attacking when they
jump. They are simply do-
ing what they have been do-
ing for millions of years...
jumping. They aren't tar-
geting the boaters," Beach
said. Gulf sturgeon can get
quite big, exceeding 8 feet
and 200 pounds.

"They have five rows of
rock-hard scutes along their
sides, back and belly When
sturgeon and boaters col-
lide, the results can be dev-
astating," Beach said.


efit because they will save
money on the purchase
price of the designated EN-
ERGY STAR appliances, as
well as saving money each
month on their energy and
water bill and retailers will
benefit through the large in-
crease in sales of appli-
ances.

The state is expecting.appli-
ances sales to exceed $62
million, with over $4 million
in 'ales taxes collected.

Among eligible appliances
are refrigerators, freezers,
washing machines, dish-
washers, room air condi-
tioners and gas tankless wa-
ter heaters.

To qualify, a consumer must
first purchase the energy-ef-
ficient appliance, then log
onto a state website to se-
cure a rebate reservation.
The web site is www.re-
bates.com/florida The pro-
gram is expected to accom-
modate about 66,000 reserva-
tions.

o I used to sell
Pampered Chef. It's a com-
pany that sells kitchen tools
in home party settings.
When a hostess would agree
to have a party you would
help her choose a recipe to
showcase the tools. This
recipe was one of my fa-
vorites to show and eat. You
can alter the toppings to suit
your family's tastes and is a
great way to use some of
your garden produce. Of
course, I changed it around
some and I like this way bet-
ter than the original recipe.

CooL vegg ie pizzC

2 packages (8 ounces each)
refrigerated crescent rolls
1 package (8 ounces) cream
cheese, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
Salt and ground black pep-
per to taste
2 cups assorted fresh vegeta-
bles such as, cauliflower, cu-
cumber, green or red bell
pepper, tomato, green
onions, mushrooms, carrots,
zucchini or yellow squash,
'% cup grated cheese (your
favorite, I use cheddar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Unroll crescent dough. In a
9X13 flat pan with low sides
lay each dough side by side
covering the whole bottom.
Press out where needed and
seal the seams. Bake 12-15
minutes or until light golden
brown. Remove from oven.
Cool completely.

In a bowl combine cream
cheese, mayonnaise, garlic,
dill weed, salt and pepper,
mix well. Spread cream
cheese mixture over top of
the crust.


Prepare assorted vegetaoles.
Slice thinly and cut into
smallish pieces so it won't
be hard to eat. Sprinkle over
the top of pizza. Sprinkle
cheese on top. Refrigerate 30
minutes. Cut into squares
and serve.

I found it easier to cut the
crust into squares before
adding the cream cheese
mixture or before adding the
vegetables. After everything
is on the pizza it is possible
to slice but sometime the
vegetables are hard to cut
through.

This next recipe is one of
Mr. Man's favorites. When I
went searching for it in my
recipe book the pages were
stuck together. That is proof
of a good recipe!

TIP

To easily slice these recipes
grab your pizza cutter in-
stead of your knife. Pizza
cutters zip through items
much smoother and quicker
than a knife. Another idea is
to use a pizza cutter to slice
sandwiches and cut up food
into bite size pieces for the
kids.

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.

"A Walk On Our Planet" -
A special edition for Earth
Week

This week has been inter-
nationally dedicated to be
"EARTH WEEK" in a global
effort to bring awareness to
the topic of. the conserva-
tion of natural resources. I
thought I would write a few
lines about some facts that
are directly related to our
environment, therefore, al-
lowing us to have the oppor-
tunity to take a "walk in our
gar
dens".

The subject of GLOBAL
WARMING has become a
general term, now so pollut-
ed itself with political cont-
aminates, that the public
has almost become callused
to the real facts. First of all
is the fact that we are able
to survive on planet earth in
a small zone of what is
called an atmosphere. Our
planet's atmosphere is limit-
ed to less than 10 miles
above the earth's surface
and less than 10 miles into
the earth's crust.

This area is called the BIOS-
PHERE; the only place that
we know of in our entire
universe that can sustain
life as we know it. Included
in this biosphere are natur-
al resources that we use to
exist and create materials to
live each day.

Some of these are non-re-
newable resources; ones
that once they are used are
lost and gone forever.Exam-.
ples are oil, natural gases,
coal ect.. Funny thing that
these are some of the things
we realize are the HOT top-
ics that cause world con-
flicts and wars! WE do not
have much to say about
making any more of these
products, but we do have


Meaning: Adults get tired of
having so many responsibilities
all the time, so sometimes we
act like kids. We all need a little
encouragement from time to
time to hang in there with our
everyday obligations. Others
are counting on us and we don't
'want to let them down, and that
helps us somehow muster up
the adult energy and maturity
to get the job done.
Life's responsibilities can some-
times feel overwhelming. We
feel like we just don't want to do
this anymore. But, somehow we
muster up the energy to do


SWAT NEWS

Ruth Rains Middle School's new
SWAT (Students Working
Against Tobacco) club has been
very busy this year. Kick Butts
Day 2010 was held on March 24th
at Ruth Rains Middle School..
This is a campaign for Tobacco
Free Kids' annual celebration of
youth advocacy leadership and
activism. Sixth graders created
a 'Kick Butts Day" bulletin
board for the sixth grade hall-
way Students drew an outline
of their foot on a piece of con-
struction paper, and pledged to
"Kick Butts' - tobacco'butts that
is- and then stapled each foot to
the bulletin board. On this day
thousands of youth in every
state and around the world stood
up, spoke out, and pledged to
seize control against big tobacco
Ruth Rains Middle School stu-
dents were proud to participate
in this activity!
Saturday, April 10th, members
from the Ruth Rains Middle
School SWAT club met with Re-


lots to say about how we
should use them. The real
awareness we should be con-
cerned about is protecting
the resources that mean
breathing clean healthy air,
provide drinkable water and
clean non-polluted soils to
grow our food crops. Recy-
cling of materials is only
one part of our obligation,
conserving water is huge
and helping any way we can
to protect the air and soil
from toxic pollutants are big
deals; that is IF you actually
care about how your chil-
dren and grandkids will sur-
vive in the next generations.

Take a few minutes this
week to think about how
YOU can help the cause
without getting into any po-
litical discussions or bi-par-
tisans related arguments as
to who's fault it is that got
us here. Take a walk in your
garden, breathe a deep
breath, cool off with a cold
glass of 'good ole H20 from
your well, pick a few blue-
berries and think about how
fortunate you are to live in
the good ole USA despite
Wall Street, Goldman Sachs,
politicians and car dealers.

God bless as you have the
opportunity to live through
another Earth Week cele-
bration, Art Wyckoff


what we have to do because oth-
ers are counting on us. Then
once we begin another day, sud-
denly things seem a little differ-
ent than what we have built up
in our minds. Hang in there!
You can do it. Never Give Up!

Dixie Music Center to
Hold Spring Recital
Saturday, April 24th


Dixie Music Center is
holding it's spring recital
Saturday, April 24th at 4:00
p.m. The Dixie County His-
torical Society is once again
hosting the event at the Dix-
ie County Cultural Center
(old Old Town Elementary
School) on the corner of
Hwy. 349S. and Hwy 55A in
Old Town. We are happy to
be using the beautiful audi-
torium once again for our
recital and are grateful to
the Dixie County Historical
Society for allowing us to do
so.

This year's recital will be
dedicated to the loving
memory of our beloved key-
board instructor, Miss
Pauline Ross, who passed
away Friday, April 9th. She
was with Dixie Music Cen-
ter for eleven years and was
dearly loved by all who
knew her. To call her a key-
board instructor in no way
does justice to the incredi-
ble person that she was.
Miss Pauline was a true
friend and mentor who
cared about her students
and who taught not only
music lessons but life
lessons as well. It is a tough
road we walk without our
friend, but in her honor, and
because she would have it
no other way, we will contin-
ue on -- especially with this
year's recital.

In part, we are able to do
this with the help of our
good friend and music
teacher Miss Bernie Rob-
bins. She has stepped in to


help Miss Pauline's students
participate in the recital
and for that we are deeply
thankful. Also performing
will be our guitar students,
under the guidance of our
guitar instructor Mr. Bruce
Miller, as well as Miss Tren-
da Gordon's fiddle students.
We are just so proud of all
of our students and look for-
ward to allowing them the
opportunity to show off all
that they have learned. We
do ask, for those attending,
that you plan to stay for the
entire performances so that
each child has a full audi-
ence when he or she per-
forms.

There will be a reception of
light refreshments following
the recital. This will take
place on the grounds and we
invite everyone to stay and
enjoy Members of the His-
torical Society will also be
on hand to answer any ques-
tions regarding our cultural
center, museum arid geneal-
ogy room.

Dixie Music Center has
been serving the tri-county
area for nineteen years, not
only as a retail store but
also as a music school. We
have had literally hundreds
of students through our
doors during this time and
have enjoyed each and every
one. Many of our students
have continued on in music
throughout their lives and,
in fact, one of our first stu-
dents, Easton Corbin, has, a
number one hit on the coun-
try music charts today Dix-
ie Music Center is located at
26626 SE 19 Hi, :,way in Old
Town and is owned and op-
erated by Bob and Dotti Le-
ichner. For more informa-
tion please call 542-3001

There are 2 special events
coming up soon. Mark your
calendars so you don't miss
either of them. The 1st one

day 11 am & 6 pm, Mon thru
Wed 7 pm. Come on out and
hear this wonderful man of
God bring us the Word of the
Lord for the Family
In,these trying times that we
are living in, all around us it
seems that there is just one dis-
aster after another, that every-
where we look it seems that
some one is either going to war
or is fighting a war, that all that
is on the news today is a new
disease that is more deadly
than the last one and the list
goes on and on. Does this re-
mind you of something?
If you read Matthew 24 you
will. see that these things were
predicted by the Lord Jesus
Christ when the disciples asked
Him what would be the signs of
His coming and the end of the
world (or age)? and He an-
swered them with this:
(5) For many shall com in my
name, saying, I am Christ; and
shall deceive many.
; (6) And ye shall hear of wars
and rumors of wars: see that ye
be not troubled: for all, these
things must come to pass, but
the end is not yet.
(7) For nation shall rise
against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom: and there
shall be famines;, and pesti-
lences (disease's), and earth-


one is Men's Rally at Middle
Florida Campground in
Mayo and this one will be
May 7th. Plan to attend if
you can.

Remember in the coming,
week to pray for the sick, the
bereaved, and especially the
lost. If you know someone
who is a member of the
church and is not attending,
take a little time.and give
them a call. Folks like to be
encouraged to come back. ,
when they've been missing
church. God will bless you
* for it.

Until we meet again, we will
be praying for you. If you
are looking for a church
home, we invite you to be-
come a part of the Faith
Family.


quakes, in divers (different)
places.
(8) All these are the beginning
of sorrows.
(9) Then shall they deliver
you up to be afflicted, and shall
kill you: and ye shall be hated of
all nations for my name's sake.
Jesus said in John 14:1 "Let
not your heart be troubled::ye
believe in God, believe also in
Me." Jesus has always instruct-
ed His people / God's children
to not be afraid.
We should always pray for
peace and. that any fear be lifted
from our hearts, and finally to
pray for all those we love, and
those that are lost.
Until next time, Keep Looking
Up!!! Jesus Is Coming!!!
Your Brother In Christ

Richard H. "Pat" Patterson


Pat Patterson, a Purple Heart Recipient who was award-
ed the Bronze Star for his action in Viet Nam and later
became known as Santa Claus to the children of Dixie
County, passed away quietly Monday, April 12, 2010 in
his home in Old Town. At his side at the time of his
death, was his wife, family, and close friends. He was 76
years old.

Pat, as he was known to his friends, served in the U.S.
Coast Guard. During his tour in Viet Nam, his ship, the
Point Welcome, came under friendly fire. During the as-
sault, the commanding officer was killed and the execu-
tive officer was severely wounded. According to the
U.S. Coast Guard,"Unhesitatingly, and with complete
disregard for his personal safety, Chief Patterson
climbed to the bridge and took command. He ordered
the crew to carry the wounded to the comparative safety
of the below decks area. Alone on the bridge, he then
maneuvered the cutter at high speed to avoid subse-
quent attacks. When it became apparent that he could
not successfully evade the attacking aircraft, he ran the
cutter close ashore, and directed the crew to abandon
ship. Under his composed leadership, the wounded
were wrapped in life jackets and paired with the able
bodied before going over the side. Chief Patterson kept'
his crew calm and organized while they were in the wa-
ter and until they were picked up by rescue craft. The
Navy Department awarded him the bronze star with the
combat "V" device for his actions." Because of in-
juries he received during the attack, he was also award-
ed a Purple Heart.

After retiring to Old Town, Pat and his wife, Winifred,
were responsible for holding the First District Commu-
nity Thanksgiving Dinners and Christmas Parties. Pat
was Santa Claus, arriving on a fire truck much to the
delight of the children who were attending the parties.

He was well loved and respected by many and always
had a smile and a joke for those he met. He is survived
by his wife, Winifred, sons Richard and Daniel, of Old
Town, along with their families, daughters Beverly
Townsend of Saint Petersburg, and Debra Waters of
Old Town, 10 grandchildren, and four great grandchil-
dren.
