Journal reporter, friend Ken Dougherty dies


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDIt OR
Ken Dougherty, long time
reporter in Levy County, died
Wednesday, Dec. 28 after a
short illness. He was 57.
Dougherty joined the Levy
County Journal in July 2005
after more than two years
with the Chi.fln! Citizen.
Prior to his work here, he
worked at the Citrus County
Chronicle and as the public
information officer for Citrus
County.
Born in Elizabeth, N.J.,
Dec. 5, 1948 to the late Mary
and Warren Dougherty, he
graduated Cranford High
School and then joined the
United States Air Force in
1968.
It was his deployment in
the Philippines that prompt-
ed a permanent move to the
South and warmer tempera-
tures.
"I enjoyed the tropics,"
he said last year when inter-

viewing for his job with the
Journal. "I had enough cold
weather growing up."
After his four years of
military service, Dougherty
worked a variety of jobs in a
slew of towns before decid-
ing at age 30 to enroll in col-
lege.

last year when asked what
prompted his enrollment.
Working full-time in a tex-
tile mill in South Georgia,
Dougherty enrolled at Geor-
gia Southern and earned a de-
gree in journalism.
A self-admitted uninspired
student, Dougherty none-
theless worked his way up
ti'jtii i'. i 'n, and even-
tually owned his own news-
paper in Beverly Hills.
But it was the nomadic
call of the reporter's life that
beckoned him and with which
he found the greatest satisfac-
tion.
Moving to Chiefland al-
most four years ago, he im-
mediately established him-
self as a fair and responsible
journalist who took people's
concerns to heart.
"I'll never forget the first
time I met Ken," said Andy

Eagles soar to victory in tourney


BY SHANNON PANETTA
CoRRiESPo'NnDN I
The holiday season brings
a lot of things to the Bronson
area and one of the annual
events is the three-day
Bronson Basketball Holiday
Tournament.
This year the annual
tournament was again hosted
at A.H. White gymnasium
and hosted schools from as
far away as South Florida.
The teams that took part this
year were the Trenton Tigers,
Lafayette Hornets, Madison
Cowboys, Newberry
Panthers, Temple Heights
Eagles, Palmetto Ridge Bears,
University School Suns and
the host Bronson Eagles.
The first night kicked off
with Lafayette defeating
Palmetto Ridge, Trenton
defeating Madison and the


Eagles defeating Temple
Heights.
Temple Heights is a young
team that did not match up too
well with the quicker Eagle
team. The Eagles broke out
quick and ran the floor with
quick baskets by Kendrick
Galloway-Nordstrom and
a three-point shot by Josh
Hamilton.
Temple Heights answered
quick and tried to keep things
close as Greg David made
two quick baskets; but could
not keep up with the much
quicker Bronson team. By the
end of the first half the Eagles
had built a 39-21 lead and did
not look back.
In the second half, Bronson
kept a fast pace. While
running Coach Beckham's
offense, the team seemed
to have no trouble scoring


Low cost vaccinations are

slated for this Saturday

against the younger templee
Heights team.
By the end of the third
quarter the outcome of the
game was not in doubt as the
Eagles went on to an 83-44
win. The game saw Coach
Beckham find the time to play
some of his young JV players
as well. Four of the JV team
members dressed for the
tournament and not only saw
a lot of action but contributed
to the Eagles win.
The second night saw the
Eagles take on the Newberry
Panthers following their
win the night before over
University High School.
Earlier this season the
Eagles hosted Newberry in a
hotly contested game but this
one was different from the
tip-off. While the first quarter
and half was close score
wise, the Eagles seemed to be
taking advantage as well as
putting out more effort.
The Eagles closed out the
first quarter with an eight
point run led by William
Harris's eight points and a
16-11 lead. Newberry tried to
close the gap and the first half
ended with Bronson leading
34-17.
The second half saw the
Eagles blow the game open.
They started the third quarter
pressing and converting fast
break turnovers. By the fourth
quarter Coach Beckham once
again was able to get some
young JV players valuable
playing time. The Eagles
rolled to a 72-43 win with
high scorers being Kendrick
Galloway-Nordstrom with
21 points and William Harris
with 16 points.
Friday evening saw the
Eagles facing the Lafayette
Hornets following their
trouncing of the Trenton
Tigers. The Eagles took
control early with fast


break baskets by Greg
West, Kendrick Galloway-
Nordstrom and Josh
Hamilton. There was also
some great defense play under
the basket by Vince Nazworth
as the Eagles looked like they
were going to blow the doors
off of the A.H. White gym.
Trailing by 18 points,
the Hornets did not give in.
They cut the Eagle lead to
15 by halftime and came out
swarming in the second half.
The second half saw Chris
Givens hit two straight three-
point baskets and cut the
Eagles lead to nine points.
This was when the Eagles
stepped into a beehive as
the Hornets turned two more
turnovers into quick baskets.
By the end of the third quarter
the Hornets had stolen the
lead and fans were watching
one heck of a basketball
game.
The fourth quarter saw both
teams tighten up on defense
and scoring became hard
to find but the Eagles held
on with a 56-53 victory and
were crowned tournament
champions.
High scorers for the Eagles
were Galloway-Nordstrom
with 24 points and Harris
with 11. The Hornets high
scorers were Cody Page with
24 points and Eric Mcyntre
with 15 points. Page and
Mcyntre were both awarded
All-Tournament for the
Hornets along with William
Harris and Josh Hamilton
receiving the honor for the
Eagles. Tournament MVP
went to Kendrick Galloway-
Nordstrom for his outstanding
play.
The Eagles resume the
regular season this week
when they take on Trenton
at home Jan. 5 and Branford
away Friday, Jan. 6.

Remembering a life that was snuffed too quickly

H"e disliked toast,
spicy food,
Paula Deen and
what he called
government's dog and pony
shows.
He adored NASCAR,
Stargate, Emeril Lagasse
and was always on a quest in
search of the perfect hot dog.
Last week, while most of
us were settling down after
Christmas and bracing for
New Year's, Ken Dough-
erty, my co-worker and
friend, died suddenly leaving
hundreds reeling and ach-
ing with a profound sense of
loss.
Ken walked into my of-
fice on a sunny July day
and before I had a chance to
introduce myself, he prof-
fered a gift.
"I brought you a present,"
he said, handing me Flori-
da's Government-in-the-Sun-
shine Manual.
Something clicked--imme-
diately--and over the next six
months, Ken and I developed
a relationship that was rare
in our business. It was a
friendship rooted in the com-
mon bond of journalism, but
it went above the working
relationship.
I We crammed a lot of liv-
ing into the last six months
as we ate lunch together
almost every day--including
our days off, went bargain
shopping on Saturdays,
cooked dinners for one
another on weekends and
walked along the marina's
edge in Old Homosassa
Springs.
To me--and those of us


who knew him through his
work--he was more than af-
fable, more than kind, more
than generous.
Outside of the work he
loved so much, Ken was a
loner.
I was surprised last week
when his neighbors told me
he wasn't sociable.
"Oh, he'd speak when he
saw you out," one said, "but
he didn't mix much. He kept
to himself."
I was astonished. The
outgoing, civic minded man
I had come to know--and
love--didn't share himself
with those who lived only
a stone's throw away. They
knew he was a reporter. They
knew he was a bachelor.
They knew he kept erratic
hours.
They knew nothing and it
is their loss.
The Ken Dougherty I
knew was the epitome of a
Southern gentleman despite
the fact he was born and
reared in the North.
He was a protector, a
comforter, a giver and yes, a
charmer.
It wasn't too long after he
started here that I began call-
ing him my work husband
but I assure you, it was noth-
ing more than a friendship.
I stayed on him to eat bet-
ter, to sleep more, to exer-
cise, to enjoy life. I made
sure he had his keys and his
camera, paid his bills and
made time for himself.
In exchange, he fixed a
window blind, prepared me
for hurricanes, put air in my
tires, checked out a plumb-


ing problem and called to
make sure I was OK when-
ever I was on the road.
He worried constantly
about people and this com-
munity.
When the town of Bron-
son feared it might lose its
grant for the Jackson House,
Ken was all hep with ideas
on how we could rally the
townspeople to save it.
When the Chiefland
Chamber couldn't locate
Santa right before the Winter
Festival, Ken told me he'd
find Santa--personally.
And there he and I were
that night, wrangling chil-
dren into Santa's lap, posing
them for pictures and laugh-
ing and laughing some more.
Christmas delighted
Ken. At his insistence, we
started preparing for it before
Thanksgiving as we searched
for cheap decorations to dot
our office.
"Looks like it's up to you
and me, Kid," he said as we
pilfered through Goodwill's
treasures for wreaths, gar-
land and figurines.
"NO SNOWMEN!" He
said loudly as I touched a ce-
ramic depiction. "Snowmen
in Florida are ridiculous and

me this Ken's sudden death, only


three weeks after his 57th
birthday, has been such an
awakening.
He and I had plans. We
made promises. We set goals.
And I am left alone to carry
out what we agreed upon.
It is said that a man
preaches his funeral by the
way he lives his life.
If this is true, then Ken .
Dougherty must be remem-
bered as a man who saw
good in peop6 6e, o was
always willing to help others
and who never wanted any-
thing in return.
He gave so much.and
expected so little.
His life must be a testi-
mony to that which we know
as recorded in the book of
James, "Why, you do not
even know what will happen
tomorrow. What is your life?
You are a mist that appears
for a little while and then
vanishes."
And while we are noth-
ing but a mere vapor, each
day we live must count for
something. We must look
beyond ourselves and our
circumstances to reach out
to others. We must live each
day to its fullest potential
and reach for the brass ring.
We must treasure the
people around us and never
fail to tell them what they
mean to us; how they inspire
us and make us better.
My life is richer because
of the friendship I shared
with Ken Dougherty. It is
something that I will cherish
until the day I die . and I
must, in Ken's honor, pass
it on.

Miss Honey says.


unday, Jan. 1, 2006,
4:45 p.m. Happy
New Year and many
more to come!
I spent NewYear's Day
alone, except for Jesus. He
is always with me, wherever
I am and yes, my two little
boys, Peewee and Sweet
Pea. They love me, no
exception, and they are a lot
of company.
Yes, they are worth a
lot to me and they seem to
understand when I talk (yes,
I talk to them and they never
disagree)!
Hush, Donald, hope you
had a Happy New Year and
Mary will keep you for
another year.


really
do miss
my
friend .
Jean
who
worked
at
Tony's
since
she moved away.
May God stay with her
and keep her safe. She
cannot be replaced.
I didn't go to Sunday
services this week. I started
and had a feeling I shouldn't
be on the road so I came
back home. I believe the
Lord warns us and I try to


listen and obey.
Peewee is asleep up
here in my chair and Sweet
Pea is asleep on the floor
beside my chair. They both
got new doggie sweaters for
Christmas, but only need
them when we go out!
"Gene" my ex-boss came
by to see me (did I say
boss?) my friend. I don't
have a boss of any kind, ha,
ha, except my little dogs,
well, maybe.
Here's hoping all of
you out there are well and
happy and enjoyed all of the
holidays.
Until next week, nuff
said.

TII LJRSI)AY, JANUARY 5, 2006


Dignitaries surprise LGREA


Phenomenal strides
continue to be made by the
LGREA under the innovative
leadership of Pam J.ohnson.
The meetings are informative
and interesting.
On one occasion the Levy-
Gilchrist Retired Educators
Association was pleasantly
surprised by Senators Rod
Smith and Nancy Argenziano.


Sen. Smith spoke on the state
of education and the FCAT.
Other notable speakers have
included District IV Director
Jeanne Brockman, Buddy
Vickers, Superintendent of
Gilchrist County Schools, and
Mary Bennett, Director of
Special Programs, Gilchrist
County Schools.
The new District IV

of some help." He also added that the new tower would af-
ford the county better control of its communication system.
If other users sign on for the tower's usage, it will also gen-
erate a revenue stream, he said. The county will also have
veto power over any potential tower users.
The new tower would enable police, fire and rescue to have
coverage beyond Lebanon Station and also to Cedar Key and
Inglis.
The commissioners authorized Freddy Moody, the county
coordinator to move forward with the legal requirements con-
nected with Budd's proposal after the sheriff's department
endorsed the need for the tower.

at just how much you can ac-
complish in only 15-minutes.
The truth is we are not good
at multi-tasking. We think we
are but our homes are liv-
ing proof that we do not ever
finish anything. We are the
best at getting something out
and not putting it away when
we have finished. Here is the
main reason we don't have
homes for these items that are
lurking in your Hot Spots. Hot
Spots are those places you
pile things when you walk in
the door or sit in your favorite
chair. We have clutter taking
over the drawers, cabinets
and closets and we can't find
a place to keep the things we
love and use.
In order to get rid of the
CHAOS in our homes we
have to toss out our clutter.
This will gi~as aplace to- -'
keep things instead of piled
on a table or the floor. Those
great storage areas have been
invaded by items that you do
not love and use. It is time to
evict them and clear out your
Hot Spots. Our Hot Spots
make our homes look messy.
If we would just take 15-
minutes and clear out one Hot
Spot; your home will begin
to look better. It may not be
that immaculate clean that we
were forced to do as children
by perfectionist parents but it
will feel better when you walk
in the door. It is so hard to
clean around clutter.
Here is another fun tool we
use to get rid of our clutter.
I like to call it the 27 Fling
Boogie. Grab a grocery bag
and run through the house
and pick up 27 items to throw
away. Then grab another bag
or box and run through the
house and gather up 27 items
to give away. Here is the rule
for doing this. As you are
tossing ask yourself these
questions. Do you make me
smile? Do I have a home for
you? Do I have two of you?
This will help you get rid of
your clutter. Then put it in the

IKen


Andrews, owner of the
Levy Counti Journal. "It was
a city commissioners' meet-
ing. He was so friendly and
open. I was wary of newspa-
per reporters and he assured
me we could talk without him
writing anything down. He
seemed to have no enemies in
the world. He was so friendly
and always smiling.
"I will sorely miss him,"
Andrews said. "He was a new
found friend."
Heather Smith who worked
with Dougherty at the Jour-
nal felt the same way. "He
was the nicest man--always
willing to help. He had so
much newspaper experience
and he shared it with me. He
taught me a lot in the time I
knew him."
Chiefland Citizen writer
Mike Bo'vdoin, who worked
with him for more than two
years, .said he will remember
him as a reporter who went
beyond the call of duty to
help people.
"When you're a reporter,
people often come to you
with complaints or problems
that are upsetting them,"
Bowdoin said. "A lot of times
their problems aren't some-
thing you can write about in
the paper, but even in those
cases Ken would sit with them
very patiently, sometimes for
hours, listening to them and
talking with them until they
calmed down and felt better,
and he would assist them in
any way he could."
Dexter Hughes said Dough-
erty was a friendly person to
be around, someone to share
a story or laugh with but he
also knew when to be profes-
sional.
"Ken was a person you
liked at once. He had a great
sense of humor and a knack
for finding the better side of
people and life. As a jour-
nalist Ken was fair and ac-
curate in his reporting. He
was respected in the commu-
nity and will be mrnissed," said
Toni Collins.
"First let me say that I was
saddened by the passing of
this likable person. We were
very close in age, so his pass-
ing was a reminder that he
certainly died prematurely,"
said Ken Melton, communi-
ty affairs editor of the Citrus

County Chronicle.
"I had worked with Ken at
two different newspapers and
the thing I think that's most
important for people to under-
stand and that I want to com-
municate, was that Ken was a
genuinely nice man, who was
always willing to do anything
he could to help other people.
And that was not only true at
work, but was also a charac-
teristic he carried with him in
all walks of his life."
For many, the impression
that Dougherty made on those
who knew him was everlast-
ing.
Janet Minor of the Greater
Chiefland Chamber of Com-
merce knew him through
work, but also shared a great
fondness for him personally.
"The Ken I know (present
tense because his influence
on me is permanent)...," Mi-
nor said. "The Ken I know
focused on the upbeat aspects


of people and situations, and
just did not give traction to
the negatives.
"The Ken I know was a
man of principal and patrio-
tism, and one who could coax
a grin out of a rock.
"With the Ken I know it
was never about Ken, it was
about the community, or
about the veterans... He was
about affirming, encouraging,
acknowledging, about what's
right and what's fair.
"And losing him isn't."
Dougherty, a bachelor, en-
joyed his solitude, especially
getting away from it all in
his Winnebago. Spare time
found him in the Gulf fishing
or on the sofa watching Jeff
Gordon, his favorite NAS-
CAR driver.
A memorial service is
planned for a later date and
will be announced in the Levy
County Journal.


A colleague's


remembrances
BY MIRIAM BLITCH
LCJ STAFF
Everyday we learn something new whether it's in a
good or bad way. We get caught up in our daily rou-
tine trying to make everything go in order. Sometimes it
works, sometimes it doesn't.
My dear friend Ken Dougherty was a special friend.
When things were not what they seemed, he would have
a solution or an answer in a positive manner.
When I first started working at the Journal and my
first assignment was to cover the school board. I really
didn't know the importance of what was going on.
I sat down beside him after introducing myself. Even
though we worked for two different papers, he had told
me what the importance of the assignment was and I
should make sure our county had the right information
on what was really going on and to include the right per-
centage of what was expected out of our local tax dol-
lars; what expectations our county children were faced
with and what each person's job was at the school board.
It helped out a lot for me to continue.
The moral of this story is that he had a positive outlook
on life even though he really had no one. He loved ev-
erybody and would always be willing to help anybody.
We don't know where our last breath will come to an
end. We do know what our plans for the day may be
even though somebody or something may come along
to change it.
Be brave enough to flow with what's in your heart
that may be the right thing to do. Tell your loved ones
that they're loved. Those you really don't think a lot of,
you should make them feel special because we don't
know when our last breath will come.

CHRISTMAS WAS Ken Dougherty's favorite time
of the year and he was determined that everything
around him be festive. In this photo, taken Dec. 15,
he gave the office tree a "haircut" so the star on top
would show better.

A Levy County

Indian Tale
Found by small boys
and trained archeologists
alike, on scientific
digs and random hikes
projectile points and
arrowheads tell a story of
the past when these stone
items meant life and death
itself.

Not just curiosity to
gather dust upon a shelf.
Each encyclopedia of
knowledge about our
self and past a provider
of food, a protector of
hearth and home, they
were never just a stone.
Chipped from rock and
shaped by hand they hold
the very souls of man.
If you should come
upon one, it will be your
lucky day. Pick it up and
study it, then leave it
where it lay for someone
in the distant future to
find it the same way.
John Esteves lives in
Inglis.
