Police target sex offenders


BY KEN DOUGHERTY
S .Ff \'FrTER .
Criminals conm icted of sex
crimes liv ing in Chietland
could find themselves under
very close monitoring by city
police soon.
City Police Chief Robert
Douglas and Ofc. Tommy
Walker made a presentation
to the Chiefland City Com-
mission Tuesday offering
suggestions about ho,' .to
closely\ monitor sexual of-
fenders. restrict the number
of places where the\ can live
and ho\\ to step up monitor-
ing of the six known offend-
ers living in the city and the
remaining half-dozen or so
living just outside city limits.
Douglas explained that if
the commission is willing to
appro e ordinances restrict-
ing the mo\ events and loca-
tions w here con' icted offend-


ers may lite, the city police
department has the power to
enforce those laws.
City Commissioners Teal
Pomero., Alice lonyei, Rol-
lin Hudson and Mayor Teresa
Barron seemed receptive to
the plan.
The chief pointed out that
there is an obvious lack of reg-
ulation at the state level once
a sentence is served, but local
ordinances can be enforced if
they do not supersede state or
county ordinances even after
the felon serves a sentence.
The chief pointed to a new\
law in Miami that is so re-
stricti e to convicted offend-
ers that they are leaving the
city.
One of those Miamni laws
forbids sex. offenders from
living or frequenting any
place within 2,500 feet where
children congregate, he said,,


and that so constricts a con-
ict's ntovements the\ feel
the need to leave.
Walker., %ho has been se-
lected by Douglas to oversee
a tougher program in dealing'
with the offenders, pointed
out that the exodus ofcon\ icts
from Nliami see them scatter
to other cities and towns.
"I'd rather not see them
live in Chiefland. I certainly
wouldn't want one living
next to me, and I don't think
you would \\ant onie living
next to ou." \Walker said to
the commissioners.
The officer explained that
sexual predators are the most
serious sort of offender and
they get that brand from the
courts.
"If they use physical vio-
lence or they attack children,

106 years ago
May 1, 1899, From the Levy. County Archives
Minute Book "H"
Regular, Meeting of. ,the Board of County
Commissioners
On motion the following resolution was unaniniously
adopted, to wit: "Whereas it is the opinion of this Board
that it was a very unwise piece of legislation that placed
the office of State's Atlornie, on a stated salary. That if
said officer was paid in part a' nominal salary and.
balance in Conviction fees, as under the former law, that
more convictions would be made against the criminal
class which class seem now to be on the increase.
That this method of compensation would make a greater
incentive and cause the State's Attorney to use greater
diligence in the prosecution of criminals. Levy County
has recently been forced to pay out about $150.00 in the
Campbell Case, in this case the law was violated and the
County has suffered heavy expense yet the case will
not be prosecuted. Therefore, be it .resolved that our
representatives in the present Legislature, be earnestly
requested to do all in their power to enact a law placing
the salary of State's Attorney partly on salary and
balance in conviction fees say $1,000.00 as salary and
conviction fees for balance.

Festival of Lights was a


bright holiday event


BY VELMA POOLE
FANNING SPRINGS CHAMBER
OF COMMERCE
SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL
What a beautiful day
for everyone to come out
and enjoy the setting at the
Fanning Springs State Park
this past Saturday. It was great
to browse through the many
art & craft booths looking for
that perfect gift or just admire
the beautiful handiwork that
these people put into their.
crafts. Many took advantage
to sit and listen to the great
entertainment on stage that
continued all day long. There
was a variety in the music and
everyone seemed to really
enjoy it.
The aroma that came from
the food court was just as
tempting as ever. You didn't
know if you wanted some of
that great Bar B Que, a hot
dog, Italian Sausage, or just
go for cotton candy, kettle
kom, homemade ice cream or
a variety of desserts to choose
from, plus much more. This
was a day to just forget the'
calories and enjoy as this is
a once a year event, so make
the most of it!
Santa had. a great time
listening to each of the
children as they went .over
their wish list and having their
picture taken with him. Each
one received a small gift after
the visit. Hope he remembers
all of those special wishes
come Christmas time!
Did you get over to watch
those cute Yellow Rubber
Ducks race down the river
and each one trying to be first
in line? What an exciting time
we all had pulling for that
special.one we had selected
earlier. The %winners were
Sue Gaje\\ ski. 1st place; Terri
Tower, 2nd place and' Chris
Roth was 3'i place winner.
'There were about 100 cars
entered in the Classic Car
,Show this year. It must be
very difficult to choose the
winners for this group as they
all seem to be the BEST! This
group has really got a wide
range of beauties anid they are
all show material.
:The ,. ABATE
motorcycle group did not
have as many' entries- this
year but those that came
were something to admire.
The winners from this event
were:
1st place Street over 1000cc
-Frank Petrone:
2r place Street, over
SI 000cc- Felix Burgoyne.
1st Place Rat. Bike- Steve
Mallady.
2nd Place Rat Bike-Harold
Hicks
1st Place Custom Bike- Val
Hutchinson
2nd Place Custom Bike- Bill
"Hutch" Hutchinson
1st Place Best of Show-
Frank Petrone
2"n Place Best of Show- Val
Hutchinson.
It was great to' see
toys being donated to the
Tri County Marine Corps.
League as they collected toys
that would be distributed
to needy families in the Tri
County area ,for Christmas.
It is truly heartwarming to
just be a small part in this
wonderful program, knowing
that it will bring hope and joy
to a child and their family that
Possibly. would not be able to
have a good Christmas.
The Lighted Boat Parade
was as magnificent as ,ever
with only 10 boats decorated
this year, but each one was a
winner! We are grateful to the
Fish & Wildlife Marine Patrol
and the Gilchrist County
Rescue Boat for pro hiding
their services to ensure the'
safety of all. All oIf the boater


tied up at the docks behind
the Suwannee, Gables Motel
& Marina so they could come


on shore and enjoy some
hot coffee and hot chocolate
along with other snacks. The
awards, were presented to the
winners. Small Boat winners
were 1st Place- Theresa Jones
& Joe Tompkins; 2nd Place
went to William Couey and
3rd Place went to Frank &
Cheryl Nekola of Driftwood
Realty. Medium Boat
Winners were 1st Place- Toys
for Tots entered by the Tri
County Marine Corp League
; 2nd Place went to McNulty
Realty and 3rd Place went to
Jackie & Jessyca Gamble and
owned by Roger & Becky
Sanford. The Large Boat
wininers were 1st Place- Mike
Boyer sponsored by NAPA

& Pam Wessels sponsored'
by the Board of Realtors and
3td Place went to the Red Hat

Special thanks to our judges
this year who were Donald
Forgione, Bureau Chief
for the Florida State Parks
Northeast District; Levy
County Commissioner Lilly
Rooks and Walter Gibson
from the Chiefland Citizen.
We are all grateful for the
many people that came out
to share in the festivities of
the day and know they will,
carry home some very good
memories and spread the word
about what a great community,
we live in. Thanks to each
and everyone that helped in
any way to make this day so
very special. .
MERRY CHRISTMAS

OPINION


THURSDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2005


OUR VIEW


It's all in the perception

T- he old saying, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"
is as true now as it was when it was first spoken.
Maybe even more so as one year ends and another
one begins.
As we look back on 2005 at everything that was and
everyvting that could have been, we should stop and remem-
ber that our memories of the year will be based on how we
choose to :,''ive the events that unfolded during the year.
It is true that at the beginning of the year the hearts of
Americans went out to the victims of the tsunami in Asia.
How were we to know that before the year's end we would
experience a suiii iirtragedy here at home in New Orleans?
We could remember these events as the tragedies that they
are or -we could remember how the spirits of kindness and
iocnrosiix for one's fello\ man prevailed in the face of
adversity.
One could look back at 2005 as one more year that our
troops were re in Iraq in order to bring democracy to its
people. Or as the year Saddam Hussein was finally captured
;rnd iraq.is had their first election, which brings our troops
closer to <:- i;'- home.
It is true there were tragedies, and we should never forget
the cost of those tragedies or the lives lost. However, if that
is all we choose to remember, in some ways those losses are
all in vain. We best honor those who sacrificed and lost by
remembering also the noble and selfless acts that rose from
such events, '
Finally; how we choose to perceive this past year could
v.cady influence how we anticipate the coming year.
Is your l ass half full, or half empty?


YOUR VIEW


Changes needed in relief


Anticipating what 2006 will bring


To the editor:
This month, Red Cross
President Marsha Evans
stepped down as the char-
ity comes under fire over
its response to the Katrina
disaster. Hopefully, her
replacement will make some
important changes, including
making shelter arrangements
for evacuees with compan-
ion animals.
*Ctireritly. Red Cross shel-
ters do not universally allow
people to bring their animals.
During the Katrina disaster,
there were only a handful of
shelters in the Gulf region
open to the thousands of
people who had animals,
and these were thanks to
the initiative of local hu-
i ane societies who set up
separate shelters for animals
outside Red Cross shelters.
Elsewhere, people with
animals were turned a% ay
from emergency shelters.
arnd others put themselves at
risk by not even attempting


to evacuate, knowing that no
shelters would accept their
animals. There is no telling
how many people perished
due to the failure of the Red
Cross and government agen-
cies to include animals in
emergency preparations.
Sixty-three percent of
American households-near-
ly 70 million homes-have
four-legged family members.
This means that the major-
ity of Americans are not
being adequately served by
emergency plans that don't
include animals. Let's hope
this changes before the next
disaster strikes, or more
people and animals will
surely die tragic, preventable
deaths.

The drum that was a tree

A Levy County Indian tale

BY JOHN ESTEVES

From a hurricane downed tree, he chose by instinct itself,
he cut and carved it smart. A deer's raw skin he stretched
it thin. now it became a part. He made a drum, a worthy
one, its voice like a beating heart. He changed its life with
an ax and knife. he prayed before the start. A chanter's joy,
a healing tool, or a baby's toy, it called at dance or war its
+ beating sound, it shakes the ground, you could not ask for
more. All this was done when he chose the one that cedar
tree down by the shore. The tree transformed its voice
surx ives. It has a soul of its own like me. NMan can make a
sacred drum but only the creator can make a tree.
Talking John Estees res resides in Inglis where he is very
interested in Indian folklore.

I set out to do! I would
start out gung ho and in a
couple of %weeks I would
miss a day of my resolution
and w ith my perfectionism
wouldd beat myself up
because I had no discipline. -,;
Then say that I had messed
up and just forget the whole
thing. When I %'as studying
why my resolutions had
never stuck: I realized that
I had been mean to myself
and I had tried to do too
much too fast. I piled on
before I ever got started
by making elaborate lists
to follow. This time w'as
going to be different; I had a
simple plan and I am here to
tell you it worked.
My plan was to be good
to myself by not putting
Stood much on me. Part of
my discovery was that I
didn't have any structure
to my day. I needed a
routine but routines are not
automatically established. I
had to go about building a
routine much like you learn


a new aerobic dance step
or a new song. Practice one
part and then whlien you can
do that, you add another
part.
I decided to practice only
one habit for a whole month.
I know that psychologist say"
that it takes three \weeks to
learn a new habit. Well for
me I decided right off the
bat that I would give myself
an extra week by taking the
\\hole month of January to
practice just one habit: then
if I missed a day I had a
grace period built into my
plan. Because of the grace
period I didn't have to beat
my self up either. My first
babystep was shining my
kitchen sink and keeping it
shiny. The result of my plan
"\as truly amazing.
The only thing I had to
do w'as shine my sink every
day. From that shining sink .
grewv a positive attitude and
a smile on my face. I "as
so surprised to get up in
the morning and be greeted


by that shining sink. I was
not beating myself up and I
think this is the key to taking
babysteps.
Think back to last year
and your resolutions: to lose
weight and exercise more.
You didn't have a plan.
Instead of resolutions let's
take babysteps to accomplish
the same thing. At the same
time we hate to realize that
our perfectionism is going to
make us want to throw the
baby out with the bathivater.
Do not allow yourself to do
this ever again.
I want you to FLY!
Finally Love Yourself! You
can do this if you %will not set
yourself up to fail!

Eagles


remove


stinger


from


Hornets
BY SHANNON PANETTA
CORRESPONDENT. '
The last NVo v\eeks have
seen theEagles on aroll. After
getting pounded by old cross
town ri\al, Williston High,
everyone wondered how this
young team, would respond.
So far the response has been
a positive one with the Eagles
running off five straight wins
with .the latest coming in
an, exciting overtime game
last Saturday against the
Hawihorn High Hornets.
While most of recent
\ victories were rathereasy ones
for the varsity boys; the game
against Haw\ihorne proved be
a tough contest. Hawthorne is
a talented team of fast good
shooters: especially from the
three-point line and proved to
be a handful for the Eagles.
The game had a quick pace
with both teams getting off to
quick baskets Bronson scoring
first but Hawthorne answ ered
and took the lead. While the
lead changed several times
the Hornets were able to take
the lead into the half.
The second half saw the
Eagles make a quick -run to
cut the Hawthorne lead to
one point but the Hornets
coach called a time out and
Hawlhorne \\ as able to answer
with a run of their own. This
did not stop the Eagles as they
lead with strong rebounding
by William Harris, the
!sho6tinr ** ofb--! ,Kendrick
Galloway-Nordstrom and
Josh Hamilton went on
another run and wrestled the
lead back from the Hornets.
The fourth quarter was
pressure filled much like
a playoff game with each
team pushing the offense.
The Eagles defense had been
holding the Hornets off with
three defensive stops in row:
but with seconds left Hornets
guard Goggins hit a three-
point shot to tie the game and
send it into overtime.

Spice up your new year the right way


BY LEANNE ELY
THE DINNER DIVA
Well, the New Year is
beckoning and it's time
to go back to the kitchen.
And when I say "get ,
back to the kitchen", I
really mean get back to
basics.,Real cooking, not j
holiday cooking., Stuff to
feed yourself and your
family right-especially
if you inadvertently put
on a few holiday pounds!
You really do want to
flingthat body clutter
out on its ear, don't you?
To do that, you're
going to want to take
inventory first. I can't
think of a better place to
get back to basics than -
your spice cupboard. I am
,going to bet N ou that some of
those spices in your cabinet
have lasted longer than some
of your marriages! Those
old icky spicesare about
as useful for flavor as grass
clippings. TOSS-'em! '
Fresh dried herbs and
spices have become .
surprisingly inexpensive.
Good sources for M1 .jar
spices or e' en 2 for $1 are
dollar-type stores, Wal-I fart
and dnru stores. Health
food stores are also great
resources. They sell the
spices and herbs in bulk
jars. They are a quality'
product. \ er fresh and quite
inexpensive, too. To spice up
your cooking (and your life.
too-I might add,). you need
good ingredients. Inferior
ingredients will give \ou
a lackluster product everN
time.
If you'\ e nex er learned
ho"\ to use the mountain
of spices available, copy
this list and stick it to your
fridge. This spice primer
is guaranteed to get you
cooking in a more flavorful
way in no time!
1. Bay Leaf -- Used in
ste' s. soup and great \\ ith
pot roast. Go easy. Bay
leaves are strong. especially
California ban leaves, which
are the kind most grocery
stores stock. I use 1,2 a leaf
in my ste"s.
2. Basil --MA. the taste
of summer. Who can resist
fresh basil and tomatoes
from the garden tossed with
olive oil and garlic on a plate
full of pasta? Dried, it's
wonderful in soups. pasta
Dishes and chicken.
3. Dill It's not just
for pickles. Try some dill
sprinkled on fish, chicken or
e\ en in a light cream soup.
4. Garlic -- Nectar of the
gods, well, bulb of the gods
anyway. Garlic has away of
making the most ordinary
food gourmet. Try sprinkling
garlic powder (not garlic
salt) into a prepared box of
white cheddar macaroni and
cheese.' Surprise! It's pretty
good. Fresh, though. is best.
Squeeze it from a press into

from page 6
The overtime period \\as
tense but the Eagles managed
to take control and in the end
key free throws by Hamilton
and Galloway-Nordstrom
were able to give the Eagles
the lead and 68-63 win.
Some of the highlights
were the Eagles defensive
.: play by Greg West, Boob)
Collins and Mark Smith.
when needed in the crunch
: the defense came through.
The night also saw a good
Game between Bronson &


Haiwthorne's JV teams; with
the Hornets handing the
Eagles JV their second loss

Upcoming for the Eagles
is the annual Holiday
J Tournament featuring the
Eagles and five other visiting
* teams. The tournament kicked
off Dec. 28 and runs through
Dec. 30 with the first tip off at
3:30 p.m.


almost anything. Don't use
t\ ith chocolate though.
5. Ginger -- Sprinkle it in


your stir-fry, try it on baked
chicken breasts.with a little
soy sauce and garlic. For
fun, get it fresh lit's that
alien-looking root mass in
the produce department) and
freeze it. It will keep almost
indefinitely when frozen. To


use, hack offa piece, peel it
and grate into your recipe.
6. Nutmeg -- I love
nutmeg. If you can
find nutmeg nuts
and the itty. bimtt
grater that comes
with it, buy it. Once
you've had freshly
grated nutmeg. the
g po\ dered sruff in
the jar is beneath
you. Obviously an
ingredient in baking,
it's also good grated
on sauteed squash,
green beans, and
carrots.
7. Oregano -- A
staple in Italian
cooking, it's also good
in stew\s and salad
dressings.
S. Roseniary -- This
beautiful plant gro\\ s wild in
my garden and pro\ ides an
intoxicating aroma to meats.
stews and root veggies.
Try some crtunbled in your
carrots for a change of pace.


9. Tarragon -- An almost
licorice fla\ or, this delicate
herb takes front and center
in \ inaigrenes, as a delicious
sprinkle on the top of baked
or poached poultry and fish.
10. Thyme -- Make time
for thyme! It's strong and
adds a hint of character to
an otherwise pretty standard
dish. Use it with chicken,
soups and beef.
True, this is an abbreviated
list of spices, but it's a good
start. I'\e skipped a lot of
them because the\ are used
so infrequently or just take
up room on the lazy susan.
Besides, who cares w\\hat
turmeric is used for anyway?
I can't e\ en pronounce it.

need to email me about
