Manager




list pared


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
And then there were four.
Following Monday night's
regular meeting, Chiefland
commissioners opened a
special meeting to cull the
number of applicants for city
manager.
When they were finished,
four of the 30 remained.
Selected for the short list
are Rodney Russ of Antho-
ny, Gregg Griffin of Ocala,
Charles A. Gambaro Jr. of
Oviedo and James A. Woods
of Southport.
Woods received the most
votes from the commissioners
for an interview with five.
The short list candidates
will be interviewed Jan. 30
and Jan. 31.
In other business, the com-
mission spent over 30 min-
utes Monday trying to decide
when its members needed an
agenda prior to the meeting.
Mayor Teresa Barron said
she needed more time to study
the agenda, which is now
picked up on Friday. Acting
City Manager Bill Hammond
said it took two days to com-
plete the agenda and assem-
ble the packets. If staff were
to meet the mayor's request


for a six-day period for agen-
da review, the deadline would
have to be on the Friday 10
days prior to the meeting, he
said.
Commissioner Alice
Monyei said that would put
unnecessary stress on staff
and Mary Golden cautioned it
would limit the public's abil-
ity to be a part of meetings.
As the mayor pressed for
more time, Commissioners
Monyei and Betty Walker
said the current system has
worked for years and there
was no need to change.
Commissioner Teal Pome-
roy said he would like to have
his own Wednesday. Walker
then said when she picked
this meeting's agenda up
Friday afternoon, several re-
mained in the box, including
the mayor's.
The discussion see-sawed
back and forth until Commis-
sioner Rollin Hudson inter-
rupted.
"This is not that big of an
issue. We don't need this go-
ing back and forth," he said.
Monyei and Walker made
and seconded a motion to
keep the deadline as is. It

"Parents called saying they'd kept their
kids home. They were worried it would be
too cold for a field trip," Ms. Gernhardt told
the ranger. The sun was shining, the water

equipment operator and
served two years in the
United States Marine Corps
in the Eighth Engineer
Battalion Force Troops at
Camp Lejuene, N.C.. At
one time, he owned his own
land clearing and excavating
business.
He began working with
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
at the Lower Suwannee in
June 1989.
In the earliest years of the
refuge, there were roads to be
built, boardwalks and fishing
piers to be constructed, nature
trails to be cut, and signs to be
erected. He always enjoyed
the variety the job provided.
After 14 years of hard work,
DeVore is proud the Lower


Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge has developed into an
outstanding example of the
Florida he remembers.
The Refuge received
extensive damage during
the 2004 hurricane season;
management began looking
for better solutions to road
restoration: As an expert,
DeVore was assigned the
resurfacing of miles of
refuge roads with over 100
tons of gravel. He was
responsible for overseeing
the dumping, spreading and
leveling of the gravel using a
Caterpillar motor grader. This
application of gravel on the
roads will reduce costly road

Although impact fees went

took the issue back to the
front burner after Attorney

Eagles split weekend games


BY SHANNON PANETTA
(')RRJRFSIIONDI:NT
With just a few weeks left
in the regular season, the
Bronson Eagles were rolling
along as they hosted two
games at their home A.H.
White gymnasium last week
and traveled on Friday.
Monday saw the Eagles
host the Dixie County
Cowboys. Usually a toughly
challenged game, this match
up saw the Eagles dominate
from the tip-off.
With the usual "push it up
the floor" fast-paced Eagle
offense, the Cowboys could
not keep the pace.
Kendrick Galloway-
Nordstrom got off to a quick
pace scoring hitting 14 points
for the evening. Tough under
the board defense by Vince
Nazworth and William Harris
provided strong rebounding
at both ends of the floor.
High scorer for the game
was the Eagles' Tremaine
McDaniel who put in 15
points as the Eagles rolled to
a 34-10 halftime lead and an
easy 62-35 victory.
Thursday evening saw
the Trenton Tigers roll into
the Eagles' Nest for a very
important .district game and
the Tigers had a chip on their
shoulder.
From the opening tip the
Tigers forced the pace of the
game; fast and furious. The
Eagle known for running an
up tempo pace had trouble
keeping up.
Trenton got off to a quick
lead forcing Eagle turn-overs
but Bronson adjusted and
went on a 14-6 run closing
out the quarter with the lead.
The second half the pace
continued with Trenton
pushing the offense and
controlling the boards.
The Tigers went on a run
and cut the Eagle lead to 16-
16 with 2:25 remaining in the
half and closed it out with a
three-point basket and a 23-
22 halftime lead.
The second half saw the
Eagles try to adjust but
Trenton went on another run
9-2 for a 35-31 lead. The


Eagles were having problems
controlling the boards but
Coach Beckham used a time-
out and made an adjustment.
Following the time out, the
Eagles went on a 17-3 run
and closed out the quarter
with a 41-34 lead.

The fourth quarter saw
momentum change again
as Trenton once again took
control and ran off 13 points
to the Eagles three.
When it looked like the
Eagles would get back into
the game a controversial
foul was called. The officials
called Mark Smith for a foul


during a rebound (over tilhe
back) but fans through Smith
was battling his own man.
This call totally swung
momentum in the Tigers
favor and the Eagles never
regained control as the Tigers
held on for a 52-50 upset.
On Saturday the Eagles
traveled to Branford and
rebounded from their first
district loss of the season
with a win as they defeated
the Buccaneers 61- 45.
The high scorers for
the game being Kendrick
Galloway-Nordstrom with
19 points and Tremaine
McDaniel with 10 points.

AARP offers driving

course in Williston

The National Office of AARP sponsors two programs
that are not under the auspices of the State of Local Chapter
Offices. The two programs are Mature Driver Education and
Tax-Aide.
The Driver Education Course will be offered in the
Fellowship Hall of the United Methodist Church at 213 W.
Noble Ave., Williston, on Jan. 30 and 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Cost for the class is $10 per person payable when registering
for the Jan. 30.
Both members of a married couple are encouraged to
complete the course, as Florida state law mandates that auto
insurance companies give a premium discount to persons
age 55 and over when you submit the certificate awarded for
course completion. Each insurance company determines the
discount. Tests are self scored and scores are not recorded.
Linda Cochran is the class instructor. A minimum of 15
registrants is needed and a maximum of 25 will be accepted.
There are no Tax-Aide persons available in Williston to
assist the older population with completing their tax returns,
but if anyone is interested in attending classes to assist with
tax returns locally, please call and you will be referred to the
proper person for class details.
Reservations are required and can be made by calling Adelia
Vachon at 352-528-5024. Anyone can take the class.

Vocabulary to know
To the editor:
It is said that the English language is one of the most
difficult to learn. We have so many words that sound alike
but have a different meaning. We also have people who use
words and never spend time to find out what they mean.
Let's take the word conservative. According to Webster's
Dictionary, it means tending to conserve, tending to pre-
serve, established institutions, opposed to change moderate,
cautions and a conservative person.
Let's take the word democratic. The Webster's Diction-
ary defines the word by saying one who is of or for democ-
racy, of or for all the people, not snobbish, a member of the"
Democratic Party.
How many times have I heard President Bush say he
wants to have a Democratic Iraq? I would like to know what
is wrong with a Democratic America?
Getting back to words. Let's look at that awful disgust-
ing word the Conservative Party uses whenever they try to
belittle the Democratic Party. The word I have in mind is the
word liberal.
Webster defines the word by starting with the French word
libber which means free. It then says it means generous,
ample, abundant, not literal or strict, tolerant, broad-minded,
favoring reform or progress and one who favors reform or
progress.
We elderly people and veterans have worked for and
fought to make this country a better place for our children,
our grandchildren and a place of peace for the little people
who are not able to fight for themselves, Those are the
Americans on Medicare, Medicaid and welfare.
It is now up to you, young people to seek out the truth,
vote for a true American--one who is honest and has com-
passion for his fellow man. Not one who belongs to the PEG
system--Power, Ego and Greed.

Looking ahead to March


( citizens, as your


State Senator I
would like to give
idals you a preview of the 2006
Florida Legislative Session
and remind you how to par-
urch, located ticipate in our state's yearly
e help of the Legislative process. During
sponsible for the fall, there were Legisla-
tive Delegation Hearings in
of Christmas every county to prepare us
room table, for the 2006 Legislative Ses-
drawn on a sion that will begin March
7th. Your locally elected of-
act the Levy ficials, county administrators
and many of your neighbors
all used the opportunity to
outline issues they hope the
Legislature can address dur-
ing the next session.
Senate and House com-
mittees are now meeting to
review reports on projects
started as a result of the
2005 Legislative Session.
Members are also discussing
proposed changes or addi-
tions to Florida's statutes
and budget that will be
considered in the upcoming
session, starting on March 7,
2006. Committee hearings
began last fall and are sched-
uled throughout January and
February in Tallahassee.
I anticipate that several
topics will be of statewide
interest as session begins. I
expect there to be a contin-
ued focus on quality imple-
mentation of the Voluntary
Pre-Kindergarten program.
In light of the recent Su-
preme Court ruling, Leg-
islators will be reviewing
Florida's eminent domain
laws and my concern is that
we safeguard individual
property rights. Another is-
sue that will require thought-
ful action is the needed
oversight of state contracts


SEN. ROD SMITH






Guest Columnist


for services to be sure state
funds are well spent. Finally,
I expect discussion of the
Jessica Lunsford Act, to
be sure the law is working
as intended and to address
implementation issues that
arose. As a co-author, I am
most proud of the provision
that requires a mandatory 25
year sentence for those who
molest children under the
age of 12.
Our north Florida inter-
ests do not always coincide
with those of the more urban
areas and I am fortunate to
serve with other senators and
representatives who pride
themselves on working as
a team to serve all the rural
counties in north, central
Florida. It always helps me
be a better advocate when I
hear from my constituents.
While I may not always
agree with you or be able
to take immediate action on
your ideas, I do value lots
of input. You are welcome
to write to me: Senator Rod
Smith, 4131 NW 28th Lane,
Suite 4, Gainesville, Fla.
32606. Or, you can use my
email address: smith.rod.
web@leg.state.fl.us.
You may also call my
office and talk to one of
my Legislative Assistants,
who will let me know your
concerns. My Gainesville


office number is 352-375-
3555. If that is long-distance,
please use my toll-free line..
at 1-866-778-2300. It is my
aim that my office is also a
resource to you for questions
about how Florida's govern-
ment works or how to get in
touch with the right office to
solve a problem.
Finally, I want to remind
you that I serve as the Chair
of the Agriculture Com-
mittee, the Vice-Chair for
both the Criminal Justice


7


and Criminal Justice Ap-
propriations Committees.
I'm also a member of the
Communication and Public
Utilities; the Environmental
Preservation; the Rules and
Calendar; and the Ways and
Means Committees. My of-
fice can provide information
you need about these, other
committees of the Senate or
pending legislation. You can
also review legislative issues
and actions by going on-line
6' www.flsenate.gov.
I am proudIc to be your
State Senator for District
14 in Florida's Legislature
and it has been a privilege to
serve the district since 2000.
I look forward to hearing
from you.
Rod Smith represents
the 14th District which
includes part of Levy
County.


A Levy County Indian Tale

BY TALKING JOHN
GUEST COLUMNIST
The lightning struck the old pine tree. The fire trav-
eled to the ground on the dry moss in its hollow. The wind
was blowing from the north, the holocaust did follow. The
undergrowth was now aglow; the village in its wake. Cool
heads must prevail there can be no mistakes. The birds
of prey followed ahead of the fire line, catching the fleeing
small creatures and the snakes.
There's panic everywhere. The people and the animals
together fled toward the swamps in fear. Yet the creator
sends the cleansing fire, it can happen this time of year. As
it runs its course, leaves, gains and loss, the wise men know
the reason. Repeated many times in the past, we call it fire
season. The fire had scorched black the land, releasing Bor-
man seeds by its fiery hand and the new grass now starts to
grow. The people plant new gardens and more crops they
can now grow. The deer fawns, weaned, now fattened on
this grass; the earth has been renewed, made bountiful and
all's at peace at last.
John Esteves resides in Inglis where he is an Indian
folklore enthusiast.

Miss Honey says .


Good Morning! Did
you have a good
weekend? We did!
Me, Peewee and Sweet Pea.
Oh yes, these little boys keep
me busy, but I do love them
and they love me! How do I
know? They wag their tails
not their tongues! Yeah, they
do, too! No pun intended.
I went to church and
Sunday school and went to
Brenda's and Billy's for
lunch and a nice visit, but
came home before dark. I
just don't like to be out after
dark! Although I know God
takes care of his own, I also
know he expects me to do
my part of taking care of
myself.


I
had a
nice chat .
with my "2

Mrs.
Touchton,
Saturday
down at
the dollar
store.
Where else is there except
the post office, restaurants,
Tony's and yes, the Thrift
Shop and of course, the
beauty shop. How else do
you think we ladies would
be so pretty (what a joke)'?
But I was taught all of my
growing up years "Beauty
is as beauty does!" I try to


act pretty and be good to
everyone. Nuff said.
I really miss my-firiend
Miss Jean, who worked at
Tony's, but moved away,
back up north, and left me
here. She left me her Mr. and
Mrs. Claus and a snowman,
but I would have preferred
she stayed and sent these
away. I guess maybe she'll
write me or maybe call some
time! I don't have an address
for her!

three fourth-grade classes
having taken advantage of
the no-cost bus trip.
"Ms. Gernhardt has asked
us to bring our lessons into
her classroom for three
years now," said Ranger
Parm Darty. "She's an avid
(kayak) paddler at both local
refuges and always attends
our open-to-the-public
annual meetings in March,
so we were very excited to
welcome her class." This
year's lesson and field trip
theme was Florida's Earliest
Cultures.
In the 1800s Atsena Otie,
a Gulf island off the Cedar
Keys NWR, was the home
of the Faber Mill and all
the workers it took to run
the factory. The historic
cemetery with its hand
crafted headstones captivated
the youngsters. They began
thinking of the names on the
stones as living, breathing
children, mill workers and
families. Even further back
in time were the indigenous
cultures that fished the
estuarine waters near Cedar
Key.
Huge shell middens and
broken bits of pottery along
the beaches gave the students
clues to the development of
the "shell cultures" along the
Gulf.
After the boat trip, the
group headed to Shell Mound
for their final lesson on
Florida history and heritage.

maintenance in the future
and ensure safe passage for
visitors and employees.
Being the primary heavy
equipment engineer for the
past 16 years, DeVore's
retirement will leave a large
vacancy at the refuge one
that will be difficult to fill due
to his vast knowledge of all
phases of road construction
and maintenance.
"Armegy leaves us with
big shoes to fill in terms of
maintaining our roads and
public use areas. His expertise
with a motor grader is not
commonly found within the
Fish and Wildlife Service"
said Refuge Manager Kathy
Whaley. "We appreciate
all of the work Armegy has
accomplished at the Refuge
and wish him the best in
retirement" she said.
After a retirement party
with family and co-workers,
DeVore said, "I know I'll
miss the Lower Suwannee
Refuge, the staff, and the
work I have been doing for
many years, but it's time to
move to another phase of my
life."
He plans to spend time
fishing, enjoying his
grandchildren and catching
up on the many projects he
has neglected through the
years.

1 percent of the fees it would
collect on Bronson's behalf.
"We should keep an open.

Melody LaFlam.

JOURNAL THURSDAY, JANUARY 12,2006


/firomnfiv,


STUDENTS FROM Whispering Winds Charter School learned history and sci-
ence while on a field trip to an island off the Cedar Keys.


The students were excited
to learn prehistoric cultures
were here 3,000-6,000 years
ago, before pottery, bows and
arrows were developed. The
construction of the 28-foot
tall mouncdat the Gulf's edge
is a testament to the seafood-
rich waters of the estuary.
It is also a monument to


the resourcefulness of the
ancients, which inspired
poignant questions from the
curious youngsters.
"It's rewarding for a
teacher to see excited kids
with great questions," said
Ms. Gernhardt.
Your National Wildlife
Refuge can serve as place of


solitude, recreation, hunting,
fishing, photography and the
ultimate outdoor classroom
for the study of science and
history. If you or your child's
teacher would be interested
in a field trip or classroom
presentation, call the refuge
at 352/493-0238, extension
223.

LEVY COUNTY

HISTORY
January 9, 2006
From the Levy County Clerks Archives & History
Dept. Minutes Book "Q"
Regular session this 711' day of September, AD, 1948.
Mr. Clyde Coulter, Manager Cedar Key Airport, Raddy
,Davis, Mayor Cedar Key, Members of City Council of
Cedar Key and Dr. Trawick, President of the Chamber of
Commerce along with Mr. Harold Wilde, who is
connected with the Civil Aeronautics Administration at
Jacksonville, came before the Board and discussed the
matter @f Federal Aid Project for the construction of the
road and bridge from the Town of Cedar Key to the Cedar
Key Airport. It was explained to the Board that Mr. J.H.
Dowling, the County Engineer, had estimated that this
project would cost an estimate of $20,000.00 and that if
the Board of County Commissioners would request the
Civil Aeronautics Administration for Federal Aid, which
would in no way formally bind the Levy County Board to
proceed with the project. The board authorized its
Chairman to sign the necessary request with the
understanding that said request in no way would bind the
Board if they determined later that it was unable to raise
the necessary funds and proceed with the project.
