Reminiscing With

Mrs. Ila Asbell


By Portia Sache
On February 9. 1907, a
baby girl was born to Lemuel
and Mary Summers Watson
in north Levy County. The
baby girl. named Ila, was the
only girl in a family with
eight boys for many years.
In fact, her sister. Edna, was
not born until after she had
married and left home.
The young Ila lived on a
farm %with her family. Her
father farmed and the family
grew all their food. milked a
cow, made butter: had some
chickens and turkeys for
meat and eggs. They had a
few hogs too. Her father
would butcher hogs. cure the
meat in the smoke house, and
take it down to the trading
post at Fowler's Bluff to sell
to the folks that worked at
the fiber factory.
Her father also grew cotton
and she had to help pick ttl
cotton. She recollects that on
the Fourth of July one year,
she was picking cotton in a
field near Willow Sink while
some boys from the Wolf
Sink School were playing a
ballgame with some boys
from Chiefland. She wanted
to watch .the game but the
cotton had to be picked so


Highway 24 Named


Edward O.


Ila Asbell
she picked cotton while the
boys played ball.
She began school at the
Wolf Sink School. Some of
her teachers were Mr. Tom
Clyatt, Mr. Calloway. Maude
Horne Walker and Inez
Hardee. She went to school
there for several years but
attended school in Trenton
one year. She recalls walk-
ing to school when she went
to Wolf Sink. However, she
drove a horse-drawn buggy
to school when she went to
the Trenton school. She
went to the eighth grade.
Mrs. Ila knew her husband,
Shelton Asbell, all her life.

Chiefland Not In

Favor Of Changing

Code To Allow

.Sunday Alcohol Sales


A move to amend the
hours of alcoholic beverage
sales in the city of Chiefland
came to a fast halt at Mon-
day's Chiefland City Com-
nlission meeting. Word had
apparently spread through
the community that a request
for a public hearing to amend
or repeal the current
Chiefland code to match that
of state law and county
regulations would be made at
the meeting.
Many local citizens at-
tended the meeting to let it be
known that they had no in-
terest in extending the hours
that businesses could sell al-
coholic beverages to include
Sunday.

night Saturday and 7:00 a.m.
Monday. There shall also be
no alcoholic beverage sales
from 12:00 midnight until
7:00 a.m. each night.
Mr. George Sandora who
is a planning and develop-
ment consultant told the city
commissioners that he had
been retained by a group of
local business owners to rep-
resent their interests in this
matter. Mr. Sandora re-
quested a public hearing to
amend the current city code
to bring it in line with the
state and county in regards to
alcoholic sales. The state and
county allow alcoholic bev-
erage sales on Sundays from
7:00 a.m. until midnight.
Mr. Sandora pointed out
that there needs to be a level
playing field between the
county, state and city as far
as the sale of alcoholic bev-
erages are concerned. He
went on to say there are some
20 businesses in the city that
are asking by petition to
amend the current code. Mr.
Sandora presented the com-
missioners with a petition
containing eight signatures
and said that more signatures

Representative Will Kendrick welcomes rhe crowd to the
dedication of a 12-mile portion of Highway 24.


Howard Peters and Pearle
Belcher of Cedar Key were
joined by family, friends, and
a large number of their son's
fellow workers last Friday.
February I 1. The gathering
%was to dedicate a section of
Highway 24 in honor of their
late son, Edward O. "Eddie"
Peters, who died on March
3, 2004 in the line of duty
for the Florida Division of
Forestry.
Ed, as he was known
by the forest rangers from
throughout the region. \\as
on his way to a routine
brush fire call on Highway
24, between Rosewood and
Otter Creek, when the right
front tire split, causing a
blowout which in turn took
his life.
Representative Will
Kendrick of Carrabelle, who
has known the Peters family
for years, .introduced a Bill
during the last legislative


session to name a 12-mile
section of High\way 24
between Otter Creek and
Rosewood in Mr. Peters'
honor.
Representative Charlie
Dean also attended the road
dedication and paid his
respects to the Peters family.
He said. "We never know
when the good Lord is going
to call us home. this is a
fitting way to say thank you
to Eddie Peters for a good
life of serx ice."
One of the signs was
unveiled on the law\n of the
Cedar Key fire tower site.
The Florida Department
of Transportation placed
t-o signs which read,
"Forests Ranger Edw'ard O.
Peters Memorial High\ay.,
Designated By: 2004
Legislature of Florida," at
Otter Creek and one near
Rose\wood. The Cedar Key
Tower was %\here Eddie


%\as first employed by the
Division of Forestry some
.15 years ago.
Zach Peters, Eddie Peters'
nephew, lead the Pledge of
Allegiance at the dedication.
Representative Kendrick
spoke of Peters' love for
nature, hunting and fishing.
He also said that originally it
was suggested that the Cedar
Key Forestry Tower site be
named after Eddie but the
representative pointed out
that due to budget cuts from
time to time, towers were
closed and he felt something
more permanent was in
order such as dedicating a
section of Highway 24.
Mike Long, Director of
the Division of Forestry.
said, "Peters was the fifth
employee of the Division
of Forestry to die in the line
of duty." He went on to say
that the job of a forester puts
them in harms way.
Le\.- County Commission
Lilly Rooksand Levy County
Clerk of Court Danny J.
Shipp. honored Eddie
Peters' memory by reading
a resolution \which the Levy
County Commission passed
on April 6, 2004.
Dewitt Watson, Supervisor
at the Levy County Division
of Forestry, who had worked
with Eddie during his career,
read a moving tribute which
he and other foresters
compiled. The tribute read:
Ed Peters
Born March 21, 1963
Lost in the line of duty
March 3, 2004
"Ed meant a lot to all of
us. Whether I speak about
Ed for two minutes, two
hours, or if I keep you all
her for two days I can't
explain how much I mean
--Ed meant a lot to all of
us. Like a parent shouldn't
have to lose a child -1I hope
I never have to lose another


employ ee.
Ed began his career with
the Division of Forestry: on
February 13. 1989 as a fire
tower lookout. In August
of 1991 he was promoted
to Forest Ranger and began
his firefighting career. Ed.
like many of us, fought
fires not only in his local
community but across the
State of Florida as well as
other states. You \would
think that working a\way
from home would make
the risks greater, but this
sei-ves as a rnernTiei" of the
.dangers of the job we face as
firefighters day to day, that
the routine is not always the
routine.
Ed was a hard worker and
dedicated to his profession.
This is evident by the
trust and admiration that
everyone had for him, not
just professionally, but as a
person. For those who knew'
him, he touched our hearts
and although he is gone, he
is forever in our hearts.
He %\as known by many
and lo\ed by all. Ed \~as
an exception, not the rule.
Honest to a fault, loyal to
the end. He never wavered
from the truth or what was
right. He had a w\ay of
making us smile usually
with a funny anecdote of his
ow\n creation. Though time
has started the healing, there
%\ill always be an emptiness
that can't be filled and a
friend that can't be replaced.
What we do have are the


memories that %\e shared.
the stories that %we tell of a
friend that has left us, and of
a special time in our lives we
\\ill surelN miss.
So no\w as \we recognize
the ultimate sacrifice Ed
gave, let us not forget those
memories that he left with us
as a co-worker, a friend, a
family\ member, as a man.
I do appreciate everyone
that has come today to
honor him and to insure
that our memory of Ed lasts
fore er. Today w\e-dedicate
this portion of Highw\ay 24
to him. Ironic that it is the
same road that Ed traveled
throughout his childhood to
hunt, to fish, and to go to and
from work. The very road
that he enjoyed life on is the
same road he lost his life on.
It makes it only more fitting
that from this day forward
it \\ill carry his name in
memory."
Eddie's mother. Pearle.
told the foresters \\ho
gathered, that she loaed
them and that she %\anted
them to be careful while
performing their jobs. She
said the accident which took
her son's life was due to the
blowout of his right front
tire and ,\as not the fault of
Eddie.
After the unveiling of
the sign. the Division of
Forestry hosted a reception
for those who had gathered
to pay homage to their fellow
%worker and loyal friend.

Levy Sand
By Cindy Jo Ayers
This week I borrowed my
husband, John's column
from last week's Gilchrist
County Journal. I thought it
was one of his better col-
umns. Of course I may think
that because he is writing
about my son and my fam-
ily's cypress logging tradi-
tion.
John's Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Saturday morning a
group of the family and close
friends who enjoy hunting at
Magnolia, just north of Cedar
Key, got together to help one
of our younger g,'cniration
begin to gather pieces that he
will need to build a house of
cypress. The wood we were
seeking was in a cypress
slough just behind the
kitchen at the hunting camp.
After that day, I was re-
minded of just how mentally
and phnsic.ally demanding
logging actually is.
During this past hunting
season, J. and his Uncle
Mike were crossing the
slough at Magnolia when
they saw a large bald cypress
tree that had blown down
sometime during the storms.
Their first thought was to get
it out and cut it up for lum-
ber. After looking a little
closer in that area, J. and
Dave Swain found a few
other trees they could also
harvest for cypress paneling.
The process of logging in
:the Beauchamp family goes
back many generations. I
first learned about it before
becoming a member of the
family in 1979 when Cindy
Jo and I were married.
In those days, Cindy Jo's
father told us that if we
:wanted to build a small
house, we could get some
cypress out of the woods.
This not only saved us a tre-
mendous amount of money,
we also had beautiful small
.~i~i~ues l B I d .0 nJiii
4'I remember the time -hen
I \\ent to ask Mr. Eli Read if
I could cut down and remove
a large pine tree on his prop-
erty that had been struck by
lightning. I first saw this
huge tree as I was driving
west on SR 26. I could actu-
ally see the top one-third of,
this pine tree that was at least
.one-third taller than the re-
maining trees around it. The
,tree was actually one-quarter
of a mile back off-of highway
:.26 in a fence row.
Mr. Read, at that time, was
the Superintendent of Gil-
christ County Schools. He
was very concerned about me
cutting this huge tree down
and if I was going to have
help. I explained to him that
Lloyd Jr., Cindy Jo's eldest
brother, was the experienced


sawyer of the group. He
couldn't believe that I was
actually interested in getting
this tree cut up into paneling.
Cindy Jo and I were needing
some pine wood to make
paneling in our two bed-
rooms. When we cut this tree
down and sawed the lumber
in one-inch paneling, there
was enough paneling to
cover both bedrooms and a
part of the living room. Now
keep in mind that this house
was actually less than 1,200-
square feet. Cindy Jo and I
were willing to build this
house with the help of family
members with the guidance
and overseeing of Mr. Char-
les Forehand of Chiefland.
The cypress, pine, and red
cedar paneling that was in
our house was all cut on a
circular blade sawmill by
Cindy Jo's grandfather, B. A.
Barnhill of Chiefland.
When J. decided that he
wanted to cut and log cypress
out of the family slough at
the hunting camp, Cindy Jo
and I were pleased. I was ap-
prehensive regarding the in-
volvement of the actual log-
ging in the woods: Logging
is a dangerous activity, but
we were lucky, we got the
wood cut and ramped to the
edge of the slough. We were
able to bring two loads of
cypress to Chiefland last Sat-
urday. If everything works
well, maybe within a couple
of weeks.we will get the rest
of the wood on the trailer and
up to the mill.
J. is blessed to have a lov-
ing family that is willing to
help and teach him how to do
all of this himself. J. will be
able to cut up this wood with
the assistance of Dave Swain
on his Uncle Lloyd
Beauchamp Jr.'s ban saw-
mill.
On Saturday when we
dropped off a load of heart
cypress in Chiefland. J.
picked up a pallet of pecky
cypress lumber that Dave
Swain had cut up into one-
inch paneling. J.'s uncle.
Mike Beauchamp,. ga4\v.,bs
cypress deadhead to -his
nephew after the log had
been pulled from a cypress
slough near the hunting camp
many years ago.
Sunday afternoon, after we
enjoyed lunch at our home,
J., Lyndsay and I stripped-
stacked the pecky cypress
lumber in the back yard.
I hope J. and Lyndsay en-
joy this natural wood in their
home. It is unique and truly a
blessing that they too will be
able to enjoy some of the.
same riches that members of
this family have enjoyed
generations before them.

Sunday, 'Febiruary 13,
2005, 6:00 p.m. Hi, I have
*been home 'ill day this
Sunday, except to go to
Tony's to pick up a
Gainesville Sun. I haven't
been alone, because Jesus is
only a prayer away and I
have Tiny, Sweet Pea and
Kea Kca, and. believe me
Sweet Pea is in my chair, in
my lap trying to bite my
fingers off. Oh yes, he is a
real live wire, but he loves
me and he doesn't mean to
hurt me.
Monday morning. Happy
Valentine Day! No, I didn't
get a valentine this year, not
even from my bestest
friend, not even a phone
call! Hush Gene, you know
you told me "Don't open
the door unless you can tell
who is there," right? Okay,
when you knock wait for
me to get there! Don't get
in such a hurry, okay?
My heat is not working,
mi oven is not heating and
you guessed it, Miss Honey
is on the blink too. I'm not
working either.
SYou asked me .how Tiny
likes. Sweet Pea: Well, She
accepts him and she doesn't
try to hurt him, but when
she gels tired of his plau ing
she goes under the couch
and he giyes up!
.I have so much to do to-
day, but no one to make me
do it, so I might do it and I
might not! I'm sure it will
be waiting for me when I
feel up to it! It never goes
away and lherc is 'no one
else to, do it, so until I get
the "smarts"-....it ..will- be
\i ailing fnnr me.. ..'.

and This and That
You are a better person

credit for.
You have the power to
make your dreams come

.Spread some kindness
your own way.
Be kind to your neighbor!
You should be remem-

Reminiscing With

Continued from page one
They attended the same
church, Pine Grove Bapist
Church and the same school,
Wolf Sink School. She re-
calls being baptized at Wan-
namaker'on July 4, 1918.
After the baptism, she went
to a big political picnic at
Copper Sink where Governor
Sidney Catts was speaking.
Mrs. Ila married in 1922 at
the age of 15. She was mar-
ried at home. Her mom
cooked supper for them; then
they went to a revival service
at Pine Grove Baptist
Church.
When the newlyweds
awoke the 'following morn-.
ing, they realized that they
had a dilemma since neither

of them knew how to milk
the cow. Mr. Shelton en-
listed the aid of a neighbor,
Hubert Swilley, to come milk
the cow. The cow and her
calf, a horse, and a hog were
wedding presents from their
parents.
-Mrs. Ila says that Mr.
Shelton already had a truck
when they got married. He
used the truck for work;
hauling hams, turkeys and
produce. They moved down
south when daughter Roselle
(Bublitz) was very young.
They lived at Avon Park and
Sebring while Mr. Shelton
hauled oranges from the
groves to the markets. The
second child, Buddy, was
born at Sebring in 1925.
She recalled while living at


Sebring all the Indians began
moving through the area.
They were on their way to
higher ground at Lake Wales.
The Indians told the towns-
people that the sawgrass was
moving and a very bad storm
would arrive soon. A few
days later, a very bad storm
did come; it was probably a
hurricane.
Mrs. Ila and Mr. Shelton
moved back to Levy County.
They had seven more chil-
dren, Enoch, Robert, Duke,
Aline (Colson), Jetty Ruth
(Blake), Mary Ann (Griner),
and Carolyn (Morgan). Mrs.
Ila says she did not name any
of her children. Most of the
children were named by the
doctor that brought them into
the world.
Mrs. Ila also took in her
sister, Edna, when their
mother died. Edna was just
13 at the time. She also be-
came caregiver for her
mother-in-law when she suf-
fered a fall that caused her to
be bedridden for many years.
Mrs. Ila recalls the com-
munity of Judson. There was
a cotton gin and a corn mill.
Mr. Tucker had a store there.
Mr. Carter had a store at
Levyville but built a store at
Judson when it was thought
that the railroad was going to
be~ uiilt through- theie:'. The
railroad bypassed Judson and
went to Trenton. The busi-
ness community, subse-
quently, died out at Judson.
Mrs. Ila recalls the years of
the Depression and the Hoo-
ver wagons. Although the
Depression was hard, her
family always had sufficient
food since they lived on a
farm. Her husband raised
hogs to butcher and sell. He
cured the meat much as her
father had done. He had -a
route down to the Cedar Key
area where he would sell or
trade for fish. All the chil-
dren worked on the farm and
they went to, school. She is
very proud of all her chil-
dren. She took care of them
when they were young and
now all of them are attentive
to her.

would be forthcoming. He
also said that with the an-
nexation to the north and
west that the city has
planned, businesses who sell
alcoholic beverages on Sun-
day now will loss approxi-
mately 14.2 percent of their
business once they are an-
nexed into the city. He said
these businesses would fight
annexation because of the
current code.' He also re-
ported that two businesses
are looking to move outside
the city limits 'because they
can't sale alcohol on Sunday.
Commissioner Betty
Walker said she' thought the
city needed to clear up their
drug problem before they
considered extending the
hours of alcohol sales.


Mrs. Ila never learned to
drive a vehicle; she tried
.once but hit a fence post, so
she parked, the vehicle and
has let her family chauffeur
her wherever she needs to
travel. She does have a vivid
recollection of the first auto-
mobile she ever saw. She
was walking to school one
morning and Dr. Lancaster
drove by in a horseless car-
riage. Doctors made house
calls in those days so that
made it easier for him to
make his rounds to visit the
sick.
Mrs. Ila recalled the war
years. Three of her brothers
were on the USS Phoenix at
Pearl Harbor when it was
bombed. Another brother,
Ernest, was also in the Navy.
Walton was in, the Army.
She recalls that she worried
about ,all her brothers while
theyv-~ere in the'wa.".' GObm'
munication was through let-
ters and the letters were slow
in delivery. She is proud that
her brothers served the
country and is thankful that
they were not injured.
She recalls,the first time
she saw an airplane. She
said they could hear some-
thing making a noise in the
sky and eventually the plane
flew over. The year was
1922. She also recalls seeing
an airplane crash into a field
(Butler Swilley's) near her
home in the mid 1950s. The
plane was a military plane
and there was a great big'
fireball and explosion. The
impact of the plane created a
big hole in the field where it
went down. Military
authorities came from some
military base to guard the


Mayor Sunshine Baynard
said she was not in favor of
holding a public hearing on
the matter. These citizens
who attended the meeting
were asked if they were in
favor of the sale of alcohol
on Sunday and they all said
they were not. In fact, when
asked for a show of hands to
see how many were against it
the entire crowd raised their
hands.
Commissioner Walker
made the motion to deny a
public hearing on the matter.
Commissioner Alice Mboyei
seconded the motion.
Norm Fugate the city at-
torney said if any of the
business owners wished to
address the commissioners
on this matter they were free
to attend any future meeting
and do so.


area and try to determine
why the crash occurred.
Mrs. Ila was born at the
beginning of the twentieth
century and has seen many
changes in lifestyles and
technology during her 98
years. She remembers some
difficult times and some hard
times but she is thankful for
the many good times she has
enjoyed with her family and
friends. She was widowed in
1978 but she has never been
alone because her children
have been good to her. She
laughingly says, "They know
they had better be good to
me."

For centuries in our world
marriage has been commonly
understood as a relationship
between a man and a woman.
Specifically in the United
States, marriage has histori-
cally been a monogamous
relationship between a man
arid a woman. "Marriage in
this state is a common good,
not a special interest," says
Christian Coaliton of Flor-
ida's Executive Director, Bill
Stephens. "This is why we
are supporting an Amend-
ment to the Florida Constitu-
tion to preserve marriage
between a man and a
woman."
Every society needs natural
marriage (as many men as
possible each finding a
woman, caring for and com-
mitting himself exclusively
to her) working together to
create and raise the next gen-
eration. "No society needs
homosexual coupling. In
fact, too much of it would be
harmful to society and that is
why natural marriage and.
same-sex coupling cannot be
considered socially equal,"
says Stephens.
"Furthermore, same-sex
coupling celebrates gender
sameness and denies children
the gender diversity of their

the one-of-a-kind equestrian
facility that draws world re-
nown trainers and carriage
drivers. Alan Aulson states
that he is pleased that Black
Prong has hosted some of the
best carriage driving clinics
with clinicians such as Tjeerd
Velstra, a famous Dutch
driving instructor who was
twice World Champion Four-
in Hand Driver.
Another world famous cli-
nician, Jan-Erik (Nicke')
Palsson, a member of the
1998 Swedish Bronze team,
will be conducting training
February 24th through 26th at
Black Prong. Palsson wasL
also a member of the golden
team at Stockholm in 1990
and at Wolfsburg in 2000.
He was the 2004 Swedish
Champion.
Aulson states the Florida
weather is favorable for
training at this time of the
year. Many trainers like to
.schedule clinics here. Horse
owners and carriage drivers
like the Florida weather too.
The proximity of Goethe
State Park, with its many
trails, is another draw for the


area. Aulson states that the
people of Levy County have
a jewel of a park at Goethe.

The landscaping at Black
Prong Equestrian Center
capitalizes on the natural
beauty of the forest. The
park-like features include
regulation-size dressage are-
nas, practice obstacles and
marathon course and trails
including a bridge. A three-
hole golf course is available
for the enjoyment of guests.
Last December the U. S.
Equestrian carriage driving
team came to Black Prong.
The International Equestrian
Federation sanctioned team

Black Prong Equestriani
Center hosts several compe-
titions throughout the year.
The next event is the Black
Prong Combined Driving
Event scheduled for February
18t through 20h. The facil-
ity will also host the 17t An-
nual Gold Coast Jack Russell

On Tuesday, February
8, 2005, at 3:45 the Levy
County Juvenile Justice
Council met at the agri-
cultural building in Bron-
son and awarded certifi-
cates to several Levy
County youths.
These students were
recognized for good deeds
they have performed in
their schools and their
communities. These are
outstanding students in
our county. The Juvenile
Justices Council feels that
there are lots of good stu-
dents in our growing
population today that are
not being recognized.
More youth are being.
convicted of felonies than
in past years. Our society
sees the wrong students do
and very rarely sees the
good that the\ are doing.
Edith Brow"n, a Bronson
Toinn Council Member
and. also is a member of
the Juvenile Justice
Council, sa\s she \would
.like to encourage the Ju-
venile Justice Council.
Schools and other groups
to find southh \who are de-


serving of the recognition.
This council meets the
second Tuesday of every
month.-
Recognized this month
were' Rose Myers, Sara
Matheny and Karen Alva-
rez.
Brad Penny of Cedar
Key School nominated
Rose Myers. She is in the
10th grade, and is the
daughter of Jay and Col-
leen Myers. Rose is very
involved in the community
and in the ,school. She
volunteers her time. Rose
takes statistics, for basket-
ball and wbrks on the
yearbook staff. She pre-
sents the- Cedar Key-
School's morning an-
nouncements' 'and types
the Cedar; .Key Middle
School Newsletter.
Sara Natheny is in the
10th grade at Chiefland
High School and is the
daughter if Pafi Fortune.
Carol Jones of Chiefland
High School nominated
her. Sara volunteers every
week to tutor Matthew T\ -
'son. an elementary stu-
dent at Chiefland. She
stays after school and


works one on one with
Matthew and, according to
his mother, it really makes
a difference. Sara also
volunteers to keep the
scorebook at all the
Chiefland girls' basketball
games. She volunteered
over 100 hours this year.
Robert Turnispeed of
Chiefland High 'Nomi-
nated Karen Alvarez.
Karen is an" 8th grader at

Alvarez. Karen is an active

whatever is needed at the
school. She is responsible

tin boards, keeping them

Curves Celebrates

Anniversary With

Ribbon Cutting


Ceremony
By Portia Sache
Jason Wisham had a vision
for women! He visualized
healthy, energized women
who were ready to make
changes in their lifestyles by
including an exercise pro-
gram that is fun. On January
19, 2004, he opened a busi-
ness in Chiefland called
"Curves." Curves is a fran-
chise which began in Texas
in 1992;
On Wednesday, February
2nd, the Chiefland Chamber
of Commerce was on hand to
celebrate the first anniversary
of Curves in Chiefland. Wi-


sham reported that Curves in
Chiefland began with eight
exercise machines. Three
more machines were added
during the year and one more
will soon be arriving.
Curves members have lost
737.20 pounds. and 3,611.50
inches.' The membership is
made up of 591 women from
all walks of life home-
makers, teachers, retirees,
correctional/law enforcement
officers, governmental offi-
cials, waitresses, health care
workers, clerical and profes-
sional.


Bronson Kiwanis Club


News
Kiwanis Club of Bronson
February-8, 2005 meeting
Cliff" Norris, S uperintehi
'dent of Levy County
Schools, spoke before the
Kiwanis Club of Bronson
and presented a report of the
new Bronson School cur-
rently under construction.
The project is financed
through the Special Facilities
Construction Account. To be
eligible for these funds, the
school had to qualify with
Tallahassee and justify the
request with the existing stu-
dent stations, or spaces for
each student. The School
District has pledged for three
years, 1.5 mil of a 2 mil
capital outlay and any capital
outlay money received from
the Department of Education
will be returned to the State.
The "bare bones" budget of
$16,900,000 is the construc-
tion fund our school district
is working, with. When
asked if the new school will
also replace the old football
field, he answered by saying
they cannot use education
dollars to build a football
field. However,, there is
space allotted at the new
school site for future use.
The building will be con-
crete with brick veneer and a
blue metal roof. There will
be future modifications to
CR-32, in front of the two
schools to provide for turn


lanes, which can be funded
over a two-year period. As
for use of the old school
huildLngjafterghe new scho0iL
is completed, Mr. Norris ex-
plained about plans to move
the Hilltop Alternative
School into satisfactory,
buildings which are left.
Also, there will be space for
the ESE office, Title One of-
fice, and Administrative Of-
fices.
The new school will have a
"cafetorium" and gymna-
sium. The cafetorium con-
cept is being used in most
new school constructions as
this provides not just a cafe-
teria, but also a multi-
purpose room for school as-
semblies and a stage for
other uses. Mr. Norris said
the new school is designed
for approximately 675 stu-
dents.
He said in closing, the
completion date for the
school is set for May, 2006.
He also brought an archi-
tect's drawing of the new
complex for our viewing and
it is very impressive., The
members expressed much
interest in having Mr. Norris
return in the future to give
another update as the con-
struction progresses.
The Kiwanis Club of
Bronson meets every Tues-
day morning at 7:00 a.m. at
the Craft's Country Kitchen
Family Restaurant.

Sheriff's

Corer
By: Johnny Smith,.
Levy County Sheriff
Hi and welcome to this
week's Sheriff's Comrner. I
have two things to talk about
this week. The first is a fol-
low-up to the, phone calls we
have -been- receiving from
Miami-Dade Correction. In-
mates have been calling our
citizens at raffdom'hoping
someone will accept the
charges. This enables the in-
mate to talk for free. You get
the bill..
If you receive a call like
this, DO NOT ACCEPT
THE CHARGES. Instead
call 888-241-1290. You will.
be calling their phone service
and they can block Nour
number from being called
ever again.
Next, I'm sure most of you
have heard about the recent
"horse abuse" case we have
been investigating. This case
is significant because it gives
us a wonderful opportunity to
upgrade the effectiveness of
our horse abuse and neglect
cases.
We will now have access
to professional assistance in
evaluating abuse cases and
horses that are shown to us as
having been abused. We will
also be able to collect neces-
sary evidence to build and
support criminal cases that
become necessarN; and ap-
propriate. This doesn't mean
that \ve \\ill automatically ar-
rest and charge or automati-
cally not arrest and charge.
It means that we have more
options available to us to in-


Use our proven marketing plan to earn more than $50K
per year, two retirement funds, health insurance, paid
vacation, contention trips and more! No experience
necessary. On-the-job training. Requirements: honest\,
hard.work, dependable transportation. EOE.

sure that the horse or horses
are accurately evaluated and
that if there is abuse, that the
abuse immediately stops and
the animals start to recover.
Ultimately, we hope that
Levy County's incidents of
animal abuse goes down. In
addition, we hope that our
investigation and services to
the animals become more
cost effective and productive.
Have a great week. Take
care.

AVIDD Brings Ten

Commandments

Monument To


Levy Coun
A steady iij. of citizens
came to I11BIonI1On last Thurs-
day, I1,i'i .il 10, to view the
, '1 1.t'n1innidmentI Monu-
ment, which was on tour in
Fl'rida. This monument was
removed from the Alabama
Supreme Court Rotunda on
August 27, 2003.
Federal authorities ordered
removal of the monument,
which was placed there by
former Alabama Chief Jus-
tice Roy Moore.
Jim C.iba.ni-. President of
the American Veterans in
Domestic Defense sponsors
this monument which has
traveled through some 18
states, made 124 stop,. and
has had over a million view-
ers. Mr. Cabaniss who is
r- :n Houston, Texas said
last v cck. 1he monument
contains the Ten Command-
ments and the Sermon on the
V iount these are principles
that our fooiidtc expected us
to u-~hold." The monument
which weights over 2 ton had
two tablets on the top which


read, "I am the Lord Thy
God. Thou shalt have no.
other gods before me. Thou
shalt not make unto thee any
graven image. Thou shalt not
take the name of the Lord
Thy God in vain. Remember
the Sabbath day. Keep it
Holy. Honor Thy father and
Thy mother. Thou shalt not
kill. Thou shalt not commit
adultery. Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false
witness. Thou shalt not
covet."
County Judge Joseph
Smith and many of the
courthouse staff viewed the
monument last week as well
as local veterans.groups and
citizens.
The monument was setup
on the lawn of the First Bap-
tist Church of Bronson for
most of the day. After leav-
ing Bronson the monument
was scheduled to travel to Ft.
Lauderdale.
Anyone wishing to have
more information about the
monument should call
AVIDD at 281-591-4705.

the fair Tuesday to see if we
have won any ribbons. The
bus is full and we look for-

weather should be great after
our little cold spell.
We enjoyed having six
guests from Breezy Acres'
campground. Some have
been coming in and we in-
vited them to come share our
pot luck dinner. I meet so
many wonderful friends and
great memories are made
every day.
Several traveled to Bron-

beautiful monument of the

great here at the museum. If

Dr. Martin Request

Help With Sewer Line


Relocation
Dr. Bill Martin of
Gainesville requested that the
City of Chiefland relocate a
sewer line that is on his
property. The property is lo-
cated at the corer of U.S. 19
and N.E. 4th Avenue in the
middle of Chiefland' across
the street from the Midtown
Jiffy.
The approximate cost to
relocate the line is $69,000.
Dr. Martin said he could,
contribute $20,000 toward
ti 'liie removal' Dr. Martin
told commissioners that the
easement and sewer line
were not recorded on deed to
the property and he had no
idea they were there when he
purchased the property.
He went on to show the
commissioners renderings of
the proposed 20,000 square

feet of office building he
plans to build. Dr. Martin
said he plans to seek several
professionals to fill the office
space, which will include his
orthodontics office.
City manager Ed Smith
told commissioners that the
clay pipe is old and was in-
stalled many years ago. This
line according to Mr. Smith
will need to be replaced in


the future. He went on to say
that if the commission ap-
proves the relocation, the city
would pay the remaining
$49,900 from several areas
of the budget including the
sewer system development
fund and capital outlay from
the sewer department budget.
It was pointed out that the
construction of such an office
space would help the city's
tax base.
.. Doug King: Martin's rpal:
tor said that Dr. Martin was
committed to coming to
Chiefland and helping with
the revitalization of down-
town Chiefland.
Commissioner. Betty.
Walkersaid she felt the
commissioners should see
where the funds would be
coming from to move this
sewer line before a vote "was
taken on the matter. Mr.
Smith assured the commis-
sioners he could provide
them with a breakdown of
the funds at the next city
commission meeting, which
will be February 28th. Dr.
Martin was invited to attend
that meeting and the matter
of moving the line will be
further discussed then.

graph was omitted from the
