Commissioner Nanc\ Bell
pointed out that prudent in-
'estors would have done
research before buying it as
a water source, adding that.
Blue Grotto is a sinkhole,
not a spring because the dis-
charge does not flow to a

"I don't think we have
a chance," Bell said of the
county's ability to buy the
property.

the town of Bronson chose the latter Monday night when
council members declared they wanted no part of the

2006, the council took umbrage that it had no say in the
discussions.
"It's a done deal," Mayor Beatrice Mongo said.
Councilwoman Melody LaFlam asked for clarifica-
tion. LaFlam said the way she understood the proposal,
the town would collect the impact fees, remit them to the

Lending Neighbors A Hand Committee softens

emergency plan

BY KEN DOUGHERTY
STAFF WRITER
A more specific and abbreviated emergency management
plan will return to the Chiefland City Commission on Dec.
-12.
7-..The city's emergency management committee reviewed the
plan Monday and made changes that included the deletion of
S .. -a firearm ban and specified that curfews and restrictions on
alcoholic beverage sales will be ordered only during times of
civil unrest.
"IN ;.-" ". Mayor Teresa Barron explained that the firearm ban would
-"" only disarm those who can legally carry concealed weapons.
.~ .i ="There are already laws on the books thatfcover that," she
., ",- .said, alluding to laws that prevent felons from carrying fire-
i-,". arms and a host of restrictions about where concealed weap-
ons are illegal for anyone other than a law enforcement of-
ficer.
IN- She said that only law abiding citizens would obey such a
ban while others would ignore it just as they do other laws
restricting firearms.'
Barron also requested that certain restrictions and a curfew
.'be specifically attached to only times of widespread disobedi-
ence of the lam.
V1, The mayor said that restrictions on dispensing and posses-
if sion pf alcoholic beverages and restrictions on sale of flam-
nable substances in containers other than vehicles would be
restricted to times of c% il unrest.
The times %%hen a curfew is needed was also discussed by
.the committee Mlonday afternoon.
Barron questioned the ability of the city to contact its resi-
-- dents about the curfew and questioned the suggested fine of
i-$300 and up to 60 days in jail for a first offense.
S. -- Tommy Valker, a Chiefland police officer and new member
i*i ..on the committee. said that it is generally easy to determine
"1ho is know ingly and willingly violating a curfew.

Bronsson :w e ighs. merits o'f triangular development


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
The town of Bronson wants
development but doesn't want
the. headaches that go along
"'with irregular traffic flows'
and congestion.
Those were the concerns in
. the minds of the to\\n coun-_
oil Monday night after Bob
Levesque made a presenta-
tion on the development of an
eighth of an acre tract.
Levesque. president of the
Greater Bronson Chamber of
Commerce, said the property.
is well suited for a display .for.
the retail sale of sheds and an
unmanned tourists center in a.
gazebo.
The property,. owned by
Terri Emissee. is located. off


Highway 27 and alongside
Main-Avenue.
The triangular piece of
land is 144 feet long on the
state route and 64.5.feet long
on the side closest to the bar-
bershop.
Levesque proposed that
tourists could avail them-.-
selves to brochures, bulle-
tin board space and fliers in
the gazebo, which would bel
maintained by business own-
ers and the chamber. "This
will .inadvertently stimu-
late arid improve economic
and tourism development
throtiughout our local area,"
he said in a written statement
to the council.
. Councilwoman Edith
Brown W as not convinced.


"That's an. awfully little
spot," Brown said. "It's going
to get awfuly congested."
Levesque said parking is
available with two possible
off-street sites.
MayorBeatricel\ fongo said
the proposal and Le\esque's
plans would be shown to the
town's engineer for review.
In other business, Dick Ed-
wards presented a report on
the town's grants.
He told the council that
Ryan Bell has'until May 2 to
complete his Hungry How-
ie's and the Department of

Thankful for Shands


To the editor:
Recently my wife was
admitted to Shands at AGH
and there are no words to
express how grateful we
both are for the way we were
treated from the time we
entered the emergency room
until her day of discharge.
Their staff certainly acted
with care and respect. More
than either of us could ever
imagine. I known they
certainly renewed my faith


in the human race, with the
mess this country is in. Like
I said in the beginning we
can never find the words
to express how grateful we
are. But I guess thanks will
have to do for now. Maybe
someday we will hit the
Lotto and I sure know where
a great deal of it will go.
Thanks, you wonderful
people at Shands at AGH.

The big question

A Levy County Indian tale

Is the master of all life a worm? If you ask an eagle to
describe the creator it would describe the creator as an
eagle. Likewise, the same question
posed to the wolf would tell you the cre-
ator is a wolf. Even the great cedar trees
who we people know have a voice and
spirit would say the creator is a tree. So
mankind, too, knows the creator made all
peoples and all things in his image. No
different than the lowly worm. Tiller an
aerator of mother earth who knows the i--
creator is a worm. Our grandfathers told 2
us all this is true. And we should never
forget this when we think we are better
than others or more important in this great circle of life.

Let me enjoy the frenzy of Christmas


For the last two
weeks I have
scratched my,
head and asked,
"Where did October go?"
One day I was sitting on
the beach at Cedar Key and
the next it seems I was won-
dering what I would do for
Thanksgiving.
When I took this job, I was
promised I would have fun.
Yes, along with the salary
negotiations and the benefits'
discussion. I was assured I
\\ould[ ha\e rtimn.
And I guess I am, because
that old adage about time fly-
ing when you're having fun
has come true.
It's December and in a
little over two weeks, Christ-
mas will be upon us.
If you're like me, you start
thinking about Christmas
in September but don't do
anything about it until the
middle of December.
There are cards to send,
letters to write, cookies to be
baked, gifts to buy and pack-
ages to be mailed.
And if that's all I did, there
would be no problem.
Unfortunately I like to eat,
so I have to work--and oc-.
casionally sleep.
So among meetings, com-
munity events, household
chores and life, I always
scramble to fit the frenzy of
Christmas into my schedule.
Last weekend, Ken and I
went on a thrift store run and
it was in Goodwill, I found
a tree.
Now I prefer a real tree
but budget constraints pro-
hibited the purchase.
Instead I saw this little tree


THINKING OUT
LOUD


Carolyn Risner


in Goodwill and when the
woman said it was for sale
and only $15, I snapped it
up.
Unfortunately, it didn't
have a box and it was an
older tree which meant it
was in about 100 separate
pieces.
We crammed as much of
it as we could--loose--into
my trunk and the rest in the
backseat.
I was pooped when I got
home but I had to put that
tree together--right then.
And so for the next three
hours, I tried to decode the
branches and get it reas-
sembled.
Three times, I had to move
the furniture because the tree
grew and grew until it took
up a third of my living room.
It surely hadn't looked that
big in Goodwill but when I
got into a normal size room
instead of a showroom, it
was humongous--all seven
feet of it! And I won't even
mention its girth.
At last it was up and
decorated and when I flipped
the lights off to marvel at
it, I was proud--even in my
fatigued state.

fices here at the Journal. We,

to this week's
Sheriff's
Comer. I'd like to use this
week to continue with
the "intelligence" focus.
Maybe I'll be able to fin-
ish this time or use part of
next week to finish. I say
that because "intelligence"
is the "secret squirrel" part
of law enforcement. Many
feel the secrets should
never be revealed or al-
lowed to be compromised
for any reason.
Everyone has heard
how important intel-
ligence is in keeping up
with terrorists activities.
We've heard about suc-
cesses and failures. In
fact, immediately after
911, we-had several occa-
sions to work with the FBI
in locating and investigat-
ing several people alleg-
edly connected with that

continue to exchange infor-
mation with many agencies
concerned with terrorism
overseas as well as domesti-
cally.
What may not be known
is how involved we are with
"intelligence gathering"
right here in Levy County.
We constantly search out,
gather, and evaluate infor-
mation about, sexual preda-
tors and offenders, drug
activity by locals as well as
smugglers from areas out
side the,United States.
We search out other agen-
cies that are experiencing
similar crime trends to. '
ours. An example is the "4-

vestigations.
When we
were in the
beginning
stages of our

learned that


Alachua
County and Gilchrist
County were also expe-
riencing similar thefts.
We exchanged all of the
specifics We knew as well
as questions. We actually,
were able to answer many
of each other's questions.
Probably the most
important intelligence

Eagles win two; lose on the road


'Deerly' Departed


BY SHANNON PANETTA
CORRESPONDENT
Last week saw the Eagles
varsity boys in action three
times as they hosted Chiefland
High and traveled to both Oak
Hall and Williston.
The first game on Monday,
the Eagles hosted their cross
town rival, the Chiefland
Indians. This game was a back
and forth contest from the
beginning tip-off with each
team scoring and answering
when the opposition scored.
Neither team was able to
take control of the game
or establish momentum as
Coach Beckham's young
team struggled at times to stay
in the game. The Indians led
at the end of the first quarter
16-15 and at the half 33-32.
The second half was the
lowest scoring quarter of the
game as mistakes and defense
dominated and Chiefland
took a 47-46 lead to the final
quarter. The fourth quarter
had a lot of offense as each
team answered each others'
baskets; as the Eagles took


control and closed out a 69-
63 win. Highlights saw Josh
Hamilton hitting five three
point baskets, Kendrick
Nordstrom scoring 25 points
and Tremaine McDaniel
scoring eight points.
Tuesday saw the Eagles
take a trip north to take on
Oak Hall. This was another
close game that went down to
the wire. This also game was
mostly
defensive Bronson 69
as each
of the Bronson 42,
quarters Bronson 49
w a s
fairly low
scoring.
The first quarter saw
Bronson take early control
and it looked like they were
going to run a way after a 13-
4 quarter. However, Oak Hall
also known as the. Eagles,
came right back in the second
quarter out scoring Bronson
13-4 and Bronson led 18-17
at the half..
The second half had a little
more scoring to it but it still


was a defensive struggle. All
of the Bronson scoring was
provided by Nordstrom and
William Harris while Oak
Hall had baskets by Mueller,
Martin and Heale as the
quarter ended tied at 30-30.
In the final period each
time answered each other and
Oak Hall had the lead with
moments left when Tremaine


McDaniel hit a

Chiefland 63
Oak Hall 41
Williston 75


victory 42-41.
Friday saw
travel to cross


three-point
basket
that
gave the
Eagles
another
close
la st
second

the, Eagles
town rival,


Williston. Last year saw the
renewal of this old rivalry
after years of absence. The
Eagles were able to win both
of those games.
This year however was a
different story. All though
both schools are close to each
other and a good number of


Eagle fans travel with the
team, the Devil's Den gym
was packed with a standing
room only crowd of mostly
Williston fans and they had
a great night cheering for the
Devils.
This game was dominated
from start to finish by the Red
Devils as they ran the floor,
slam dunked and shut down
the Eagles' leading scorers,
Nordstrom and Hamilton.
The Devils pressed the
Eagles and held everyone
in check and also frustrated
everyone. This was a game
where Coach Beckham had
no answer for the opponent.
Whatever the Eagles did the
Devils handled and Bronson
just never got in the game.
This game was *never in
doubt as the Devils dominated
75-49 and sent the Eagles
home with their first loss of
the season.
Friday sees the Eagles
taking on Bell High away at
8 p.m. The JV team is also in
action both nights with their
games tipping off at 5 p.m,


Bronson Middle School swats the Gnats


BY SHANNON PANETTA
CORRESPONDENT
Last week saw all of the
Bronson Eagle basketball
teams in action as the Middle
School Eagles boys and girls
hosted the Yankeetown Mid-
dle Sand Gnats.
There is nothing like the
first game of the season. Ev-
eryone is geared up and eager
to get things started.
The first game saw the
Coach Mary Schuller's Eagle
girls defeat the Sand Gnats
37-18 with good scoring and
tough defense.
Ashley Morisch hit six
first quarter points with An-
toriette Bowers adding four
points and a 10-6 first quarter


lead. The Eagle girls never
looked back as Bowers added
eight more first half points
and a 20-11 halftime lead.
The second half saw the
Eagles keeping control of
both ends of the floor; bas-
kets by Marian Smith, Lossie
Mitchell, Brittany Smith and
Liz Gray .as the Eagle- girls
dominated the Sand Gnats to
start the season off.
The Middle School Boys
post a very talented young
team of players looking to
better last year's record of 14
wins and 3 losses.
Coach Al Herndon's boys
took control from the open-
ing tip-off, jumping, out to a
14-3 first quarter lead with 12

Auditions set When I Grow Up ...


for The Nerd
Suwannee Valley Players
announces auditions for its
upcoming production of The
Nerd, a comedy/farce in two
acts by Larry Shue. Audi-
tions will be held at the Chief
Theatre, 25 E. Park Ave.
in Chiefland on Thursday,
Dec.8, and Saturday, Dec. 10,
at 10 a.m. Please bring your
calendar/schedule to mark
down dates of availability.
Needed are four men, two
women, and one small, but
mature, child. Especially
needed is for one of the
women to appear to be in her
early 30s. No preparation is
necessary. Auditions are cold
readings from the script. Re-
hearsals will be scheduled
with cast consideration from
Jan. 3 March 3, 2006. Per-
formance dates are three con-
secutive weekends: March 3-
5, 9-12, and 17-19, 2006
The Nerd is about aspir-
ing young architect, Willum
Cubbert, who has often told
his friends about the debt he
owes to Rick Steadman, a
fellow ex-GI whom he has
never met but who saved his
life in Vietnam. He has writ-
ten to Rick to say that, as long
as he is alive, "You will have
somebody on earth who will
do anything for you." Wil-
lum is delighted when Rick
shows up unexpectedly at his
home on the night of his 34th
birthday party.
But, his delight soon fades
as it becomes apparent that
Rick is a hopeless bumbling
oaf with no social sense, lit-
tle intelligence and less tact.
Rick's continued presence
among Willum and his friends
leads to one uproarious inci-
dent after another, until the
normally placid Willum finds
himself contemplating vio-
lence -- a dire development
which, happily, is staved off
by the surprising ending of
the play. .

Santa is coming to Bronson
Area children will have an opportunity for a pre-Christmas

around, they are looking for something to steal," Walker
said.
Fire Chief David Burnett pointed out that even during a
curfew, citizens have a right to be on the streets under the
ordinance.
He said that if supplies are needed from a grocery store or
pharmacy, or fuel is needed from a gas station, people will not
be stopped by police from completing their errands.
Burnett also pointed out that many of the businesses in the
city will likely be closed, but some remain open to supply law
enforcement and emergency service people and vehicles.
The fire chief said that he will be able to make the changes
and the city commission can take up the matter at the next
meeting on Dec. 12.
He said that the ordinance gives the city and the mayor the
power to declare an emergency whether the county and state
declares one or not, and that opens the door for emergency
federal aid to recover from a catastrophic event.

Medicare questions will be answered


SHINE (Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders),
a volunteer division of the
Florida Department of Elder
Affairs, will hold individual
counseling sessions at the
Chiefland Senior Center from
10 .a.m.-12 noon Wednesday,
Dec. 14 and at the Trenton
Library from 10 a.m.-12 noon
on Wednesday, Dec. 28.
There is still much confu-
sion in determining which
plan is best for you. While
SHINE cannot make that
choice for you, they \\ ill as-
sist you in getting the infor-
mation you need to make an
informed choice. The Com-
pare Drug Plans will list the
three plans that best suit your
drug needs. From there, you
can call the plan, company


and ask to be sent the details
on the plan.
As of Dec. 31, Medicaid
will no longer be supply-
ing your drugs. As of Jan. 1,
2006, a Medicare Part D Plan
will be covering your drugs.
It is important that all people
on Medicaid (full Medicaid
or SSI) have received their
'yellow' letter from the US
Dept of Health and Human
Services in the last couple of
weeks.
Please call the plan and ask
if each of your drugs will be
covered and how much each
will cost you. Most major
pharmacy chains will carry
all six of the Medicaid plans.
If. you are not satisfied
with your answers, please
get in touch with SHINE and


they can give you the num-
bers of the other five plans
to call. If you have not re-
ceived your letter, be sure to
call. Medicare at 1-800-63,3-
4227 and ask which plan you
have been assigned. Ask for
the phone number of the plan
and to be sent a copy of this
letter. If you choose a plan
that has a premium of more
than $27.09, you will pay the
difference in the cost.
For all other 1 Iledicaid pro-
grams Medicaid will no lon-
ger be paying for part or all
of the cost of your drugs as of
Dec. 31. If you do not enroll
in a plan by May 15, 2006,;
HHS will assign a plan to you
(to begin June 1, 2006). This
means that YOU must enroll
in a program by Dec. 31 to


continue to receive drugs at a
discounted cost. Please bring
in your Medicare card and
drug lists or bottles for us to
helpyou find out which h Med-
icaid Part D plan is best for
you..
Pre-qualifying for Extra
Help in paying your deduct-
ible, premiums, and drugs is
still available through SSA.
Pick up your forms from
a SHINE counseling site.
Please do not give out any
personal information to any-
one that calls or comes to the
door trying to sell you a drug
plan. It is illegal for anyone
to sell these plans door-to-
door.
For questions or directions

der Help Line at 1-800-262-

The firm auctioning the property was quoted in the St. Pe-
tersburg Times that the sale could bring in $5-$15 million.
Rob Corbett, with the Planning and Zoning staff, said only
one interested buyer had contacted his office to inquire about
zoning issues.
The firm, from Alberta, Canada, was dismayed to note it
would have to go through a lengthy legal process to obtain
permission to actually bottle and distribute water.
Corbett added that the property is appraised by Levy Coun-
ty at some $400,000 and generates about $4,000 annually in
taxes.
Interested bidders must provide proof of $100,000 in se-
cured funds before being allowed to bid on Blue Grotto.
Stevens asked if the county had that much in reserve and
was.told it did. He then asked the commissioners to set a fig-


get and that is somewhat less

than the standard 5.5 percent to
6 percent.
The sole vote against the mo-
tion to leave the scale by which
teacher salaries are determined
the way it has been for years was
cast by Frank Etheridge.
"I really believe that we need
to get that starting salary up to
$30,000," said Etheridge, who
also voiced concern over the
low reserve balance during the
meeting.


"If we don't get the reserve to
more than 3.5 percent, the state
is going to come visit us. The
way things are going in Tallahas-
see right now, there is no way to
know what kind of changes we
will have to face," he said.
School. Superintendent Cliff
Norris told the board that he
would have liked to offer a larg-
er increase than 4 percent, but
"...after looking at the figures,
it's just not possible."

ure the county was willing to spend at the auction.
Commissioners agreed to discuss it further Tuesday night,
but before the meeting adjourned, Commissioner Sammy
Yearty brought the matter to the floor again.

S"The county doesn't need to buy land in a bid process,"
Yearty said. "One million in reserve is not much when you
have a $55 million budget. We have our wagon loaded with
Devil's Hammock, Shellmound and Beck Park. I do not
foresee future litigation."
And with that said, Yearty made a motion to forget Blue
Grotto and pass on any opportunity for the county to own it.
The motion was quickly seconded by Bell.
When Chairman Tony Parker called for the vote, Yearty's
motion passed 3-2 with Stevens and Parker dissenting.
