Problems with contractor
causing delay in Dixie's
FCAT scores

Database problems with Pear-
son, the company contracted to
handle the scoring of the FCAT,
is causing longer-than-usual de-
lays in returning FCAT scores
to parents this year. The prob-
lem is not the fault of local
school districts, or in the scor-
ing of the actual exams, but in
the techincal problems while
reconciling student data be-
tween districts and Pearson's
database. Pearson is going to
reimburse the school district
for the cost of mailing out stu-
dent FCAT reports during the
summer. The scores should be
available by the first of July.

Judgement Day
is at hand

Year-end report cards will come
out for Dixie County High
School and ready to be picked
up on June 16th from 9 to 3 at
the DCHS Guidance Office.

King withdraws froln
School Board Race

Dear Fellow Citizens,
I would like to take this oppor-
tunity first of all to express my
sincere thanks to everyone who
has encouraged and supported
me in my decision to run for
the Dixie District Schools, Dis-
trict 5 School Board Member
position. After I have spent
much time thinking and pray-
ing about this, and after the
time I already spent preparing
for the election, I have come to
the conclusion that I will not be
able to devote 100% of my abili-
ty to this position if I were to
be elected. This is due to the
fact that I own and operate my
own business, as you all know,-
and I fear that the two positions
may interfere with each other,
ultimately interfering with my
livelihood and family. I feel that
my family deserves someone on
the School Board who can de-
vote 100% of their abilities to
their position. I fear that I may
not be able to provide suffi-
ciently due to already being
so involved with my busi-
ness. Therefore, please accept
my apology, but at this time I
am forced to back out of this
election. Thank you again for
all the support and encourage-
ment I have received. I truly ap-
preciate it!
Sincerely, Randy King

Commission asked to muffle go-karts


Old Town resident Roy
Fronk is fed up with a
neighbor near his home off
Willow Hole Road who
maintains a private go-kart
track that disturbs the
neighborhood peace with
the sound of un-muffled en-
'gines. Mr. Fronk told the
County Commission on
Thursday morning that
"I'm to the point that I'm
just plain ill with it." He
said that the "racetrack,
noise, and trucks without
mufflers" aremaking his
existence miserable. One
one weekend, he said there
was a "live band, wide open,
then while the band was
playing , they were running
go-karts." Fronk told the
Commission that the neigh-
bors run trucks without
mufflers up and down the
road, that "they've got three
trucks, and not a one of
them has a tag on them."
The trucks run the road in
front of his house at all
hours, and "even a danged
dog got more sense than to
take a muffler off."

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison told Mr. Fronk that
"We do not have a noise or-
dinance, and the business is
located in a properly zoned
area."Sheriff Hatcher
agreed, saying "It's been
zoned for that." Building
and Zoning Official John
Jenkins disagreed, saying
that years ago, "Mr. Kearns
applied for a special excep-
tion," but was told by for-


county ulerK uanaace uoroin ano Louny ivianager ivMike asuuy pri en
a thank you letter to the Commissioners from Old Town Pre-K for sending
"a bulldozer, dumptruck, and a grader" to school for show and tell.


mer County Attorney Joey
Lander that he didn't need
one if the track was only for
use by friends and family,
and he wasn't charging for
it's use.

Chairman Hunt told Mr.
Fronk that "I know where
you're coming from. We'll
discuss it and get back to
you." John Jenkins assured
Mr. Hunt and Mr. Fronk that
"I will go out there on Sun-
day and.check it out. I will
go out there and address the
muffler issue and deal with
it."

Don Ramdass, representa-
tive of Passero Assqciates,
appeared to update the Com-
mission on progress at the
Cross City Airport grant
funding. The airport has


$600,000 built up over the
last four years in grant
funding from the FAA to use.
on airport improvements. In
2010, they plan to rehabili-
tate runway 13-31, install a
new lighted windsock, in-
stall a lighted PAPS descent
system, a new rotating bea-
con, a new electrical vault
building with a backup gen-
erator, medium intensity
taxiing lights, and new pave-
ment markings. The pro-
jects will be funded 95% by
the FAA, 2.5% by DOT, and
Dixie will pick up 2.5% of
,the tab. The bidding process
is expected to start on Octo-
ber first. Mr. Ramdass said,
"A lot of credit goes to Com-
missioner Johnson and his
team."

Behind every great event, there's an exhausted woman


The Chad Reed Memorial 5K
run raised $25,000 this week-
end; enough not only to
build the well that Chad
promised to build in an un-
developed country, but
enough to build an addition-
al, smaller well and to fund
a scholarship in his name;
too. The wells will be.built
in a country where children
do not have access to clean
water. 6,000 children die
every day because of lack of
access to safe drinking wa-
ter. The amazing success of
the event is largely due to a
woman behind the scenes
who put it all together:
Denise Butler.

Ms. Butler lives in Atlanta,
but is a Dixie County native.
She said that "she created
the Chad Reed Memorial 5K
to raise the money needed
to fulfill the dream of a dear
friend. I did it because I
couldn't imagine Chad leav-
ing anything undone. Also, I
wanted C.J. and Caden to
see that their father not
only made an impact on
people in Dixie County, but
he had an effect on people
around the world. On Janu-
ary 17th, I stood at Chad's
graveside and promised him
I would do whatever I could
to build his well, and today,
June 6th, before I departed
Cross City for Atlanta, I


stopped
by his
gravesite
to say
"WE
DID IT!"

How did
she.orga-
nize a
charity
race
while
raising a
family
and liv-
ing in
another
state?


Armed
with a
Facebook account and ap-
parently inexhaustible ener-
gy, Ms. Butler set out to
make the well happen. She
spent "countless hours"
working on the 5K, even
though her "social life had
to come to a standstill for a
while." Several times a day,
she'd send out notices and
reminders to all of her Face-
book friends, asking for
signs, or volunteers. She got
everything she needed, and
more.

Ms. Butler said that "Both
my husband and my daugh-
ter have been very under-
standing in this whole


process. The hardest part
was being away from my
husband for 10 days. The
most fun part was making
new friends and seeing old
ones."

She continued that "I would
like to say a very heartfelt
thank you to all of my Cap-
tain Chad reed Volunteers. I
couldn't have done any of
this without you! I thank
God for your service to this
5K and I am both humbled
and honored to have the
pleasure to serve with you
on the front lines."

Are you prepared?

Record hurricane season predicted


Warm surface water tem-
peratures, La Nina condi-
tions and the "tropical mul-
ti-decadal signal" are indi-
cations that there's an 85 %
chance that 2010 is going to
be an above-average hurri-
cane season. While the
NOAA predicts from three
to seven "major" hurri-
canes, Dixie residents know
that it only takes one to
cause major damage. Even a
tropical storm can cause
power outages as long--or
sometimes longer than--as a
week.'

Dixie County EMS Coordi-
nator Tim Alexander asks
that all Dixie County resi-
dents maintain supplies in
order to sustain themselves
and their families for at
least 72 hours without assis-
tance. The government web-
site ready.gov recommends
the following items to last
for a three day period: one
gallon of water per person,
non-perishable food for �
three days, a battery or
crank powered radio and ex-
tra batteries, a flashlight
with extra batteries, a first
aid kit, whistle, dust mask,
moist towelettes, garbage
bags, a wrench or pliers for
turning off utilities, a man-
ual can opener, and cell
phone with charger--prefer-
ably solar. Additional items
that should be added in-
clude any medicines need-
ed, infant formula and dia-
pers, pet food and water,
bleach, matches, paper
plates and cups, and enter-
tainment items like books
or card games.

It's important when plan-
ning to consider that you
may be totally without pow-
er for days and to plan how
normal daily activities will


be accomplished. Coffee
lovers may stock up on wa-
ter, coffee, and sugar, only to
realize that they have no
way to heat water without
electricity. A small camp
stove with stern fuel and
an old-style perk-pot will
make the wait for the power
company more bearable.

Technology available can
make getting through an
emergency more comfort-
able. Online retailer Ham-
macher Schlemmer offers a
"power failure light" that
screws into your regular liv-
ing room lamp socket and
provides a level of safety for
homes with older people
prone to falls or small chil-
dren who are afraid of the
dark. It prevents wandering
around in the dark, looking
for a flashlight by charging
a battery constantly. If the
power goes off, the battery
powers a series of LED
lights that come on instant-
ly, and can keep the lamp on
for around 10 hours. It re-
tails for around $39.99.

Hand-cranked flashlights
and radios that never need
batteries are also a useful
addition to any emergency
kit. Inexpensive solar charg-
ers are now available that
can keep the kids enter-
tained by keeping their
iPods, laptops, cell phones,
and Kindles charged.

It doesn't take lots of money
or time to be reasonably
well prepared. 72 hours
worth of food and water can
be obtained frbm a local gro-
cery store for just a few dol-
lars and placed out of the
way, because here in Dixie,
it's not IF a hurricane hits,
it's WHEN. Be prepared.

Every Week without Fail, Since July 1, 1921
�2010 Dixie County Advocate


You got it wrong, Pat


Pat Buchanan is one of my favorite columnists. I read his
twice-weekly columns on Townhall.com faithfully I would
have voted for him if he'd gotten the Republican presiden-
tial nomination in 1992 and '96, but I'm not at all sure that
I'd vote for him now. I still like a lot of what Pal has to say,
such as how we need to take whatever steps are necessary
to keep American industry from going overseas and how we
need to secure our southern border against the, ongoing in-
vasion of illegals. That ought.to be the basic "American-
ism" that any worthy office-seeker in this country should,
embrace, and Plat Buchanan sticks with it better than most
supposedly conservative candidates and/or commentators.

That said, I find Pat a bit introverted when it comes to for-
eign policy Like it or hot, the United States emerged from
World War II with an image as the world's policeman, and
we haven't managed to shed it. I agree that it might not be a
bad idea if we could, but I'm not on board with doing so if
it would weaken us in the process. While a bit more econom-
ic self-sufficiency might be appropriate, we can't just pre-
tend that two oceans are going to keep us out of foreign
conflicts, as one might have thought a century ago.

Pat seems to think the Muslims in the Middle East wouldn't
be mad at us if we would just stay out of their half of the
world--not that they've been shy about setting up shop in
"our" half of the world (western Europe and North Ameri-
ca). Sure, other than a few terrorists attacks and a lot of
outrageous demands, they haven't really brought an end to
Western Civilization as we know it, at least not yet; but you
can be sure they're working on it.

Much of what Pat Buchanan says about conditions in Eu-
rope leading up to and during our involvement in World
War II don't agree with the history books. The man is obvi-
ously a historian who has done extensive research, and
frankly I have. gotten a lot of input from World War II com-
bat veterans that don't line up with the official accounts.
These date back to when I first talked with returning veter-
ans in the mid-to-late 1940s, while I was in the Army in the
mid-'50's, and during the past ten years when interviewing
veterans has been my job. I'm still not convinced that we
could have stayed out of the war, or that we should have;
but concerning the relevant details, I tend to put more faith
in the men who were there than the "official" historians.
In other words, I'm not getting on Pat Buchanan's case be-
cause he's a skeptic when it comes to "conventional wis-
dom." But I have a problem with Pat's recent column con-
cerning the Israelis' attack on a ship supposedly bringing.
"humanitarian aid" to Gaza. That's the place that Israel va-
cated to accommodate the Palestinians who didn't Want
-them there. (Bible students may recall that we're talking'
about essentially the same geographic entity that was once
occupied by Israel's arch-enemies, the Philistines.) The pre-
sent-day occupants of that territory, apparently not satis-
fiedvwith the absence of Israelis, have since been lobbing
rockets in the direction of communities occupied by Is-
raelis on their own, undisputed turf, to which they have re-
luctantly withdrawn.

Sooner or later, of course, you run out of rockets to lob, as-
suming you do not have the means to manufacture your
own. This means you have to have to get some of that stuff
shipped in, and the Israelis, being a shrewd and observant
sort, happened to notice a lot of ships bringing "humanitar-
ian aid" to Gaza. So Israel started blockading Gaza. As-
pirin, Band-Aids .and stuff, OK. Rocket launchers, no. Just
bring it by an Israeli port for inspection and it will get
there, along with the stuff the Israelis themselves are send-
ing to their enemy to the south.

'So, when a ship headed for Gaza is intercepted by a group
of Israeli commandos, killing nine or ten "innocent"(?)
civilians, Israel winds up on the block internationally for
what was clearly an exercise in self-defense.

Pat has no problem with heaping all the blame on Israel;
but that's also what the Islamic terrorists are doing, along
with our own establishment media--and that's not some-
place I expected to find Pat Buchanan.

Kathy McKinney


have to be honest with you; some days I sit
down on Sunday morning, all fired up about
some topic or other to share with you, and
some Sundays, I sit down with a whole lot of
nothing . This seems like it's going to be one of those nothing'
weeks. But I have three kids at home to feed, and I need the
regular paycheck, so I hope you'll bear with me as I flail
about wildly There's so much I need to get done today, but I
can't let myself do anything else until I finish this stupid
column and procrastination is my middle name lately

I would probably have something to say about politics, but
heck, you're probably tired of hearing me rant about that
and I haven't had the chance to catch up on my Fox News.
Sunday or Meet the Press yet. I had to run to
Foodland this morning to pick up some yeast to NeOV
make pizza crusts, because the kids wanted piz-
za for dinner. Yes, I know you can buy them, until t
frozen at the store, but it's just not the same,
now, is it? You're talking to a girl with a SHEEP What
on her dining room table that's in the process of
becoming yarn, and then a sweater. Pre-made do the
frozen convenience isn't my style. If I had a way
to grind wheat I'd probably make my own flour, to
just for the heck of it.

Anyway, I was wandering through the Foodland
aisles with wet hair, no makeup and in a T-shirt
with bleach spots and my oh-so-stylish $1.00 flip
flops--oh, yes, I am a fashion queen, let me tell you--when I
spotted a box of moth balls sitting on the bottom shelf. Now,
I've been looking for a way to keep snakes out from around
my chicken house. I've got a batch of baby chicklets and a
couple of baby geese out there with my pekin ducks, and I
don't want them to end up on the menu of the oak snake
that I've seen hanging around the yard lately Snakes are
.useful critters to have around, and I'm sort of squishy about
. animals, so I didn't want to kill him. I read on the internet
that snakes don't like moth balls. As you know, if it's on the
internet, then it must be true....so I bought the box and
brought it home. The nice lady at checkout told me she had
done the same thing, but that the moth balls had made her
neighbor's chicken drunk when he got up under the house
with them. Hmm...my fluffy babies as snake dinner or a
bunch of chickens wearing party hats and dancing the Dis-
co Duck. Tough choice, but the chickens probably aren't go-
ing to be driving, so I figure I'll risk it. I sprinkled the toxic
little balls all up under the chicken house and told the goose


First, let me say I agree
with much of what he says
in the article. Anyone who
aids our enemies deserves
exactly what our enemies
would do to us, which is
not a pat on the head or
putting money in our pock-
ets. I agree that donations
to any organization should
be strictly voluntary, not
coerced.

Second, the American Red
Cross is made up of Ameri-
can volunteers. It's the
American Red Cross who
operates shelters when
there's an evacuation due
to a disaster. Remember
those shelters opened here
in Dixie County for the
hurricanes and river ,
floods? They were staffed
by your friends and neigh-
bors who volunteer with
the American Red Cross.
They took the time to get
the training offered by -
you guessed it - the Ameri-
can Red Cross so they
would be better prepared to
help you more effectively It
would be so much easier to
stay at home in a comfort-
able, air conditioned house'
(if you still had power),
sleep in your own bed, pre-
pare your own food, and
use your own bathroom,
than to go volunteer in a
shelter (which may not
have power) full of
stressed-outstrangers won-
dering if they are going to
have anything left when
they can return home.

It's the American Red
Cross who responds to help
meet the needs of someone
whose house has burned or
been destroyed by a felled
tree, whether it's during
the day or in the middle of


the night. The monetary
assistance from the Ameri-
can Red Cross is donated
by those who care enough
to help someone in need.
Those people who operate
the shelters and respond to
burn-outs are your friends
and neighbors. They VOL-
UNTEER their time to get
the training needed to re-
spond to YOUR needs. If
you choose to make a mon-
etary donation to the
American Red Cross, you
can designate where you
want that money to be
used. I am surprised that
the statement "the Ameri-
can Red Cross deserves no
support whatsoever from
any American citizen" has-
n't been challenged by the
many people here who have
received assistance from
the American Red Cross.

Just a reminder - the opin-
ion of any organization re-
flects the opinions of its
members. If you really
want to see what the Amer-
ican Red Cross is about, I
urge you to attend the next
meeting. You know - the
.one held at the Emergency
Operations Center on U.S.
19 on the south end of
Cross City, attended by
your friends and neighbors.
You might be surprised at
the familiar faces you'll see
there. And yes, we're patri-
otic American citizens, vol-
unteering our time, our
knowledge and our exper-
tise to help our community

Sincerely,
Cindy Bellot

Everybody appears to be having a pleasant, if
wet, weekend. What? You're not on Facebook?


Shame on you. It's the 21st century equivalent of beauty-
shop gossip, without that freshly-permed smell.

I'm starting to sound like Phil Zinn, aren't I? I used to love
his column, "Rambling Around" that used to be in the Advo-
cate. Remember it? He was a good friend of my mother's and
I remember getting dragged over to his house for one reason
or another every once in a while. It was a good column, sim-
ple and sweet, about what local people were up to, and who
was on vacation, and who he saw in the grocery store. I'm
certainly "Rambling Around" enough this week, myself.

I guess I've put it off long enough; I'm' going tohave to get
out that new mop I just bought and put it to use. Bobby's out
mowing the yard and it makes me feel like a total lazy slack-

Dear Editor:


Since I am a contributor of ar-
ticles for the Advocate, I want-
ed' to tell you how much Jer-
ry's article offended all of the
Red Cross volunteers in and
from our county; not to men-
tion those who have con-
tributed selflessly across our
nation. I've read his words
several times and really wish
he would have left his own
personal misgivings(?) or com-
plaints out of the apparent
reason he wrote it: to con-
demn the International Red
Cross for aiding and abetting
terrorists. That point needs to
be addressed for sure and any
reliable facts and information
would be great to see in the
media for public knowledge.
Unfortunately, I did not read
where any of his inferences
came from. If he could pro-
duce those facts I think he
would have the making of a
great news worthy revelation
and one that every concerned
citizen needs to be aware of.
However, to openly condemn
the support of an organiza-
tion that has helped so many
in need in this county in times
of distress and disaster seems
absurd. I would like to state a
couple of facts about the
� American Red Cross:our re-
gional office only has 2 paid
staff; the rest of the dozens
are all 100% volunteers. That
means no gas money, no
salary no stipends, no bonus-
es nor paid health care. We
have distributed funds, food,
shelter and consolation to
dozens of families in Dixie
County that came from dona-
tions from caring American
people. Our local American
Red Cross chapter does not so-
licit funds very often, the fact
is that in tphe last 12 years that


my wife and I have been. ac-
tive volunteers, on call 24/7 to
attend to our county residents
in need, we have only had
ONE fund raising function. (it
was an auction in 2009 of
goods donated by local resi-
dents and a couple of busi-
nesses and the funds were des-
ignated to be used expressly
in our own county.) I am not at
liberty to provide a complete
list of the families that have
benefitted from services pro-
vided by our local chapter, but
you would not have to travel
too far in any direction of our
county to talk to some. I am
happy to volunteer for an or-
ganization that is actively in-
volved in helping others in
times of need at our local lev-
el. The benefits are many: I
see them around town after
house fires, storm damaged
homes, flood victims,crowded
together with over 350 in our
county's hurricane shelter, in
lines distributing ice and
MRE's, even handing out
meals at the Mallory Swamp
fire and free bottles of water
at the recent 5K run in honor
of friend Chad Reed and fami-
ly.

'Art Wyckoff

Cindy & Art:
I'm sure Mr Prater didn't
mean the LOCAL Red Cross
was bad or the volunteers, he
was after the big national
high-up organization, and in
that, I totally agree with him.
There's no excuse for training
terrorists, and if one penny of
my donation to my local Red
Cross went to that, it would
stop me from donating a single
dollar, it would. Somebody has
to hold them accountable in the
end, and if the rank and file
volunteers don't, who will?--ed

Troia Riers


by Bonnie Wilson

We did not have a planned
ride this week with our rid-
ing buddies, but I was cer-
tainly wishing we did. How-
ever today we're doing barn
chores and getting ready to
bring Dave's new boy Rebel
home. Yes, we did sell Zip,
the palomino. He went to a
nice Ocala horse farm to be
used for taking the race
horses to the track to exer-
cise. What a life he will have
on that huge farm. I guess I
was missing him a bit as I
was complaining to Dave
about wishing we had a trail
ride today Getting into the
saddle to ride my brown-
eyed handsome boy Coby,
would definatly improve my
mood. Dave then reminded
me of a trail ride that we
had been on in Mexico. We
got to talking and laughing,
remembering all the fun we
had.

We were on a Bluegrass mu-
sic cruise ship and one of
the stops was in Cozumel,
Mexico. Lots of people from
otr ship went shopping and
snorkeling, swimming with
the fish. Guess what we did?
If you know us, then you
know the right answer, We
rode horses! We booked a
horse ride at one of the lo-
cal ranches. With special
instructions from our ship's
crewmembers to NOT drink
the water, Dave, myself and
friends headed out early one
morning from the ship.
Take plenty of bottled water
with you, they advised.
Juan Wayne a Mexican cow-
boy with a lot of charm and
"wit" stood at about 5' 5"
and real macho in his west-
ern wear and Stetson hat as
he greeted us at the end of
the pier. He and Dave
seemed to get along right
from the start. It must have
been Dave.in his western.
shirt, jeans, boots, buckle
and hat. Juan asked how
many was in our party. Dave
responded with six of us
traveling together but did
not know how man~ from
the ship was attending to-
day's ride. "Well pardoners'
" he exclaimed with that
charming accent "we leave

Oil Spill Update:

* June 6, dime to silver dollar-
sized tar balls and tar patties
continue to be found in widely
scattered areas from the Alaba-
ma state line east to Laguna
Beach in Bay County Clean up
teams have been dispatched.
* According to NOAA projec-
tions, additional impacts are
expected throughout northwest
Florida within the next 72
hours due to onshore winds.
*Multiple skimmers have been
dispatched to collect tar mats
and sheen.
-Potential impacts to Florida's
shoreline will likely be highly
weathered, in the form of tar
balls, oil sheen, tar mats or
mousse - a pudding-like oil/wa-
ter mixture that could be
brown, rust or orange in color.
-Observations by NOAA contin-
ue to indicate that a small por-
tion of the oil slick, in the form
of light sheens, has reached the
Loop Current Ring, a circular
current which was formerly
part of the Loop Current but
has pinched off at the Florida
Straits.

website.


Shoreline fishing license
is free to residents,
beginning July 1

The shoreline fishing li-
cense for Florida residents
to catch saltwater fish from
shore or a structure affixed
to shore cost $9 last year,
but this year, it's free begin-
ning July 1.

The Florida Legislature re-
pealed the shoreline license
fee during the past session.
However, legislators re-
tained the license require-
ment to prevent a more-
costly federal registration
fee from taking effect in
Florida.

Resident anglers who obtain
the shoreline license over
the phone or Internet still


will have to pay a conve-
nience fee to the vendor.
The convenience fee is $2.31
for Internet sales at
www.fl.wildlifelicense.com
or $3.33 for phone sales at
888-FISH FLORIDA (888-347-
4356).

Only Florida residents qual-
ify for a no-cost shoreline li-
cense, and the license does
not cover fishing from a
boat or from land or a struc-
ture accessible only by boat.
That requires a regular salt-
water fishing license: $17
for residents; for nonresi-
dents the cost is $17 for
three days, $30 for seven
days or $47 per year.

There are some exemptions
for license requirements.
More information is avail-
able at MyFWC.com/Li-
cense.


out hinny one else." Well
that certainly worked for us.
We were "whit" him the
whole way!

We got on board a bus in ex-
actly 10 minutes and there
were 12 of us in all. Yeehaw!
We were ready Off we went
on about a 45-minute jour-
ney out to the ranch. Once
we got there we were en-
tranced into a real working
ranch in Mexico.

Our guide asked each of us
a few questions as he quick-
ly sized us up for a horse we
would need for the day. I
ride I stated, but please may
I have one who is kind? Not
silly. He stared right back at
me and he replied the he
had NO sissy horses. Well, I
thought, I may need a trans-
lator for this. DAVE!! I
yelled. Honey, I said to Dave,
help me out here with Juan
Wayne. Good ole Dave, I can
always depend on him. Juan
Wayne then said he was giv-
ing me his best horse. Then
he went about matching up
the rest of our motley crew
with only one real instruc-
tion about the horses. "Do
not pull back tight on the
reins of your 'orse. This is a
cue for him to back up and
he will continue backing till
you stop pulling back, as he
never will stop backing oth-
erwise".

One lady in particular (not
in my group of friends) was
given a horse and once she
got into the saddle she be-
gan to pull immediately
back on the reins. Da! Did
she not listen! Well my
friends, it got ugly, the horse
backed right thru a fence
and off she went. She had a
couple of skinned elbows,
but really was ok. However
she decided not to ride.

Juan then turned around
and gave that horse to my
girlfriend Rowena. I looked
at Row as she climbed up on
board and she smiled at me
and said she was ok. Whew!
But I was smiling back be-
cause Juan Wayne had giv-
en me his best 'orse. I could
not begin to tell you his
name. Juan laughed at me
every time I tried to pro-
nounce it. All I know for
sure was that it was a geld-
ing. An incredibly sweet
and kind guy (but not a sis-
sy!) that gave me a wonder-
ful ride thru the Myan Jun-
gle ruins. That's what the
ranch is famous for.

By the way, if you're won-
dering about Dave, he was
fine with his horse too.
Juan gave him a good one
too..,named Psycho! Now
that's one I could pro-
nounce, and one I'm glad I
did not ride. But you know
Dave, he'll ride anything.
So, no matter where you
trail ride, be sure you enjoy
the ride. Wehonestly did.
Contact us at levy2@fla-
horse.com. Until next time,
happy trails to you!

From COMMISSION, pg 1
Tamara Tritter and Lee
Martin from Hunt Insur-
ance Group appeared to in-
form the commission about
options with self-insurance
through a program avail-
able from a consolidated
health care group used by
Sheriff's associations. Trit-
ter claimed that self-insur-
ance programs are cheaper
than traditional insurance
because they are "able to re-
duce premiums because we
spread the risk." She said
that rates should be avail-
able in a few weeks for the
Commissioners to examine.
.Veteran's Service Officer
Jerry Prater announced
that Post 383 will have a flag
retirement ceremony at sun-
down on Flag Day, Monday
the 14th at the post. A cook-
out with the Cub Scouts will
begin at 5:00.
Old Town Pre-K special

in cleanup efforts and for

Dear Editor:
Today, I find myself with the same scenario that my prede-
cessor, County Judge Marshall Clements faced ten years
ago. In 2000 he was the same age as I am now. He was go-
ing to reach the Constitutional age limit for judicial officers
before the end of a next term; as will I. Therefore, if you
re-elect me, the scenario that took place here in 2003 will be
replayed in 2013. That process was, and is:
A month or two before my seventieth birthday, the Chair-
person of the Third Judicial Circuit Judicial Nominations
Committee will post the notice of the forthcoming vacancy.
Candidates will be allowed to apply. Their applications will
be public records. The candidates will be interviewed here
in Dixie County, in public.
The Judicial Nominations Committee is composed of both
lay persons and attorneys. The composition of the commit-
tee will undoubtedly change before 2013. There are frequent
vacancies. I urge any interested citizen to apply for a posi-
tion on that committee.
After the interviews, the Judicial Nominations committee
will send not less than three or more than six names to the
Governor for further consideration. Usually, the Governor
will have an open period to accept input from the public in-
cluding the citizens of Dixie County The Governor, or one
of his assistants, will interview the candidates.
Then the Governor will appoint a County Judge to serve
until the next election (a term of less than eighteen
months). During the 2014 election, we the citizens of Dixie
County will have an opportunity to affirm or veto the Gov-
ernor's choice by electing whoever we choose to elect.
In summary, if the citizens of Dixie County re-elect me, our
Constitution requires that I resign in 2013. The vacancy will
be filled by the governor for a while, and we will have an
election in 2014.

Very Truly Yours,
Frederick L. Koberlein


A LETTER FROM DR.
NOVIKOV

I am offering FREE ORAL
CANCER SCREENING at my
office, Cross City Dental, on
Friday morning, June 18th.
The screenings will begin at
9am. Everyone is welcome.
Patients will be seen on a
First Come - First Served
basis.
Since arriving in Cross City
I have been struck by the
high number of tobacco
users there are in this area.
This is a well known risk
factor in developing oral
cancer.
Please read and consider the
following information:
1. Tobacco use in all it's
forms is #1 on the list of
common factors in individu-
als diagnosed with cancer at
or over the age of 50. Those
who consume alcohol as.well
as use tobacco products have
a 15 times greater risk of de-
veloping oral cancer. When
you combine tobacco use.
with heavy use of alcohol,
the risk increases signifi-
cantly

2. One of the dangers of this
type of cancer is that it can
go unnoticed. It can be pain-
less. The good news is that
your dentist can, in many
cases, see tissue changes of
the actual cancer while it is
still small or in it's early
stages. Because there are so
many benign tissue changes
that occur in your mouth,
some of them can mimic oral
cancer. It is important to
have any sore or discolored
areas in your mouth, which
do not-heal themselves with-
in 14 days, looked at by a den-
tist.
3. Oral cancer has one of the
lowestsurvival rates of all
cancers. A 5 year survival
rate is about 50%, which
means that half of the people
diagnosed will die within 5
years of their diagnosis.
Death associated with this
cancer is primarily due to
the cancer being routinely
discovered late in it's devel-
opment.
If you've ever had concerns
about oral cancer for your-
self or a loved one, this will
be a great opportunity to get
it checked out by a dental
professional.

Governor Charlie Crist,
Coach Bobby Bowden and
Walmart team together to
protect Florida Children

Tallahassee, FLORIDA--The
American Football Coaches
Association and FBI's Na-
tional Child ID Program

Citizens Academy Alumni
Association have joined ef-
forts with Governor Charlie
Crist, Florida State Head
Coach Bobby Bowden, and
the Walmart Foundation to
provide 201,000 Child ID Kits
to students in the state of
Florida.

A $186,000 grant from the
Walmart foundation will pro-
vide an AFCA/FBI National
Child ID kit to all kinder-
garten students throughout
the state through their
schools this fall. As long time
partners of the AFCA/FBI
National Child ID Program,
the Florida.Association of
District School Superinten-
dents and Florida Sheriffs
Association will assist in the
distribution of ID kits to stu-
Sdents.

The Child ID Kit is the only
FBI approved DNA/finger-
printing kit of its kind and
provides parents with a non-
intrusive means of collecting
their child's identifiable in-
formation (including finger-
prints, DNA, physical char-
acteristics and picture) that
can be recorded and stored at
home. In the event of an
emergency, the Child ID Kit
can be provided by the par-

Do You Undersntd The Words Comingi Ot of
My Month?

Kids ask me all the time if I
know how to speak Japanese
or Chinese. After all I am a
Karate guy They expect me
to know how to walk on tree
tops, catch flies with chop-
sticks, flip like a Power Ranger,
spin on my back like a Ninja
Turtle, walk through walls, and
speak every oriental language
known to man. Because I tell
them to never say "can't", I
can't say "can't". So, I always
say "Yes, but I choose not to at
this time". Then the pleading
starts. "Aw come on, teach us
some Karate words,
Pleeeeease!"
You see, I don't have to really
know something to teach it. I
just make it up as I go along
(how do you think I got to be
Teacher of the Year?). At least
that's what I do when I want to
have a little fun with the kids. I
tell them I can teach them how
to speak "Karate Words" in 5
minutes. "No way", they say.
"Yes way", I say, because I can
teach them:

JAPAMHIABDIXIEMSE

(That's a combination of Japan-
ese and Chinese with a little


"Dixie-knees" thrown in)


This is not meant to be deroga-
tory in any way It is just for
fun with the kids. Of course I
tell them from the beginning
that this "lesson" isn't real.
They know I like to have a sense
of humor and when I am play-
ing with them. It goes some-
thing like this:

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday June 3rd at-the Levy
County Quilt Museum. We are still looking for the lady who
brought fabric in to be made for her new granddaughter. The
top is pieced and we need to know who you are.
It was a busy day, we had a great rain and we had visitors.
Cleo called and told us Goldie McHenry had fell again. She
needs our prayers.
Derrick and six boys were out Tuesday. Our tomatoes and
peppers are doing great. We are having lots of squash, can-
taloupe and watermelon brought in. It is so good this year
and the canning and freezing is going well. Thanks Lancast-
er.
Thursday lunch was so good with fried chicken, chicken
casserole, fried squash, rice and vegetables, cottage cheese
and pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, sliced tomatoes, cu-
cumbers, banana bread, friendship fruit cake and so much
more.

GOVERNOR AND CABINET APPROVE
PURCHASE OF TRENTON-NEWBERRY
RAIL-TRAIL PROJECT

Governor Charlie Crist and the Flori-
da Cabinet today approved the Flori-
da Department of Environmental Pro-
tection's (DEP) proposal to purchase a
9.33-mile corridor, known as the Tren-
ton-Newberry Rail Trail project. This
corridor will ultimately serve as an
extension of the 31.7-mile Nature
Coast State Trail (NCST) that is man-
aged by the DEP Office of Greenways
& Trails (OGT). Utilizing OGT's
Florida Forever acquisition funding,
DEP's Division of State Lands (DSL)
negotiated this purchase with The
Trust for Public Land, which had en-
tered into a purchase option agree-
ment with CSX Transportation. The
NCST is a component of Florida's
Statewide Greenways and Trails Sys-
tem and was recently designated as a
National Recreation Trail by the U.S.
Department of the Interior.
The extension will traverse a relative-
ly undeveloped portion of Gilchrist
County, known as the Wacasassa
Flats, to connect with existing sec-
tions of the NCST in Dixie and Levy
Counties. The rail-trail project will
begin in Trenton at the Trenton De-
pot trailhead and terminate approxi-
mately three miles from the town of
Newberry. Thanks to the support of
The Trust for Public Land, in cooper-
ation with other state and local agen-
cies, this rail-trail corridor has ex-
tended the reach of the NCST as a
valuable recreational resource for
this rural area. "This Trenton-New-
berry Rail Trail acquisition is a
prime example of what can be accom-
plished through a significant partner-
ship with CSX Railroad and a major
step toward building healthy and sus-
tainable commonitles throughout
Florida."

Obituaries and Faith


Cross City Pentecostal
Holiness Church News

It was good to be in the
house of the Lord Sunday.
Bro. Danny blessed us with
a special song titled: "Lord
search the book again." Sis.
Elaine sang "You are the
one." Bro. Richardson
brought the message from I
Samuel 3: 1-10 titled: Speak
Lord, thy servant heareth.
When God started calling
to Samuel, Samuel thought
his master, Eli, was speak-
ing to him. Two times Eli
said to Samuel,"I did not
call you." After this hap-
pened a third time, Eli final-
ly realized God was calling
Samuel. 1 Samuel 3:10 And
the Lord came, and stood,
and called as at other times,
Samuel, Samuel. Then
Samuel answered, Speak
Lord for thy servant
heareth. I believe that God
is still desitling to speaking
to his people through his
word and through the Holy
Spirit. When God speaks to
us, he does not usually
boom from heaven, Often he
speaks to us through what
his word calls "a still, small
voice." We have to stop long
enough to listen.


Many people think they do
not hear from God because
they are looking for some
kind of Supernatural Mani-
festation. God speaks
through wisdom and com-
mon sense. He does not lead
us
to do foolish things. He
speaks to us through his
word and never tells us to
do anything that does not
agree with his word.
Proverbs 8:34 Blessed is the
man that heareth me, watch-
ing daily at my gates,
waiting at the posts of my
doors. Let me encourage
you to begin to ask God to
speak to you and
then listen for his voice. He
has many good things to say'
to you.

June 13th -16th we will be
having our Kidz Krusade ti-
tled :" Walking with Jesus."
Presenting Grandma and
Grandpa Richardson along
with uncle Tex and all the
puppet gang. The Krusade
will begin Sunday night at
6:00 pm. Monday-Wednes-
day food will be served for
the kids. beginning at 5:45,
services from 6:45-8:15. Let
us continue to pray for each
other and all of our church-
-es in the community.

FIRST BAPTIST OF
STEINHATCHEE NEWS
Praise GOD what an exciting
Sunday we shared last week.
We had eight people baptized
into the "Family of GOD"! Isa-
iah 9:2 says " The people that
walked in darkness have seen a
great light:" These choices will
determine the rest of their
lives! Their family life will be
changed, their children will be
different, and they that. trust in
GOD will become stronger peo-
ple, they will face the devil and
his sinful life with courage!
JUST A THOUGHT: Never
measure GOD'S unlimited pow-
er by your limited expectations!
GOD can work wonders
through our lives. We make the
choice, but He guides us
through life! Stand back and
watch the LORD manage your
mess into a glorious outcome!
Also on Sunday we were truly
blessed as we hear the entire
Holden Family, all nine of them
singing together! First time
ever we have heard Bro. Leon
sing! Yes, he did a great job! He
and Sarah, the five kids and '
their daughter-in-laws sang; " I
Have Been Blessed"! Precious
Hanna and Faith stood our
front leading the family!
Pastor Holden continued the
series of sermons: The Home *
and Family! Our family and
homes have been suffering! Our
children have been let go to do
as they wished, no discipline,
no rules, no supervision, no
time deadlines, no constructive
love and no values! Our jails
and prisons are full of these
people that have grown up in
dysfunctional families or by Dr.
Spock's book! Pastor Holden
stated there are more un-mar-
ried people with children than
married couples! And one out
of every 2 marriages end in a
divorce. Friends, we need to
hear these Bible based mes-
sages from GOD as to how to
enhance our marriages! If the
husband gives 75% and the
wife gives 75% instead of both
giving 50% then there will be
an overlap.... not just 50/50, but
each giving 25% more than re-
quired and that will cause a
strong knot that will be held by
GOD that will keep that mar-
riage joined together by GOD
and it will tied in a love knot


forever! Parents learn to use
the rod with our children and
learn to say NO to them, give
them rules to abide by, teach
them respect, to have high val-
ues, be trustworthy, and de-
pendable!
REMEMBER: We shape tomor-
row's world by what we teach
our children today!! There must
be a willingness to give it all to
GOD and do it HIS way accord-
ing to the principles stated in
the Bible! If we listen to GOD,
then our homes and marriages
can be blessed. JESUS seen di-
vorce as, hardness of the heart!
The heart becomes so hard that
we do not care....just get a di-
vorce!!! Our homes has turned
their backs on GOD. But GOD
wants us to be blessed in our
marriages. HE has given us
strict guidelines for how we
must treat our spouse, how to
raise our children and the Ten
Commandments helps us live a
fulfilled life! Just put CHRIST
first...that is the biblical rule!
Always live simply, love serious-
' ly, care deeply, speak kindly and
leave the rest to GOD!

PUBLIU NOTU I ICE
In accordance with the Oil Pollution Act
of 1990 (33 USC � 2714(c)) ("OPA"),
please be advised of the following infor-
mation:
A well, which is located in Mississippi
Canyon Block 252 in the Gulf of Mexico
and had been drilled by the mobile off-
shore drilling unit DEEPWATER HORI-
ZON, has been named as the source of
an oil discharge that commenced
around 10:00 pm CDT on or about April
20, 2010. This spill impacted the Mis-
sissippi Canyon area, and continues to
potentially affect the Gulf Coast of the
United States. As the spill is ongoing,
the quantity of oil involved is undeter-
mined.
BP Exploration & Production Inc. ("BP
Exploration") is accepting claims for cer-
tain uncompensated damages and re-
moval costs caused by the spill. Costs
and damages that may be compensated
pursuant to OPA include removal costs;
damage to or loss to real or personal
property; loss of subsistence use of nat-
ural resources; loss of government rev-
enues; loss of profits and earnings ca-
pacity; and damages for net costs of pro-
viding increased public services.
BP Exploration has established a toll-
Iree, hotline number for claims: 1-800-
440-0858. This hotline is available 24
hours a day, 7 days a week.
The claims procedure is as follows: Per-
sonnel at the call center will provide
each caller with information on how to
submit a claim. Each claim will be as-
signed to an adjuster, and the claim will
be promptly Investigated and evaluated.
Claims for lost income or lost profits will
be evaluated promptly. The adjuster will
require some substantiation of income
impacted by the spill, but will make rea-
sonable effort to keep the documentation
requirements to a minimum. Reason-
able effort will also be made to act on
lost income claims within 48 hours of re-
ceipt. Larger and more complex claims
may require additional investigation and
documentation prior to evaluation and
resolution. Resolved claims will be paid
promptly.
Claims may be presented for interim,
short-term damages representing less
than the full amount to which the
claimant ultimately may be entitled.
Please note that payment of such claims
shall not preclude recovery for damages
not reflected in the paid or settled partial
claims.
Any claims that are denied or that are
not resolved within 90 days after the
date of submission to the BP Exploration
