Even the devil is against
the developers.
The same devil who
was banned from Inglis in
November 2002 showed
up protesting the proposed
construction of two resorts in
downtown Yankeetown.
It appeared that about 180
residents, many of whom are
Christian, decided to join
Satan in her protest.
"We'll fight this
construction any way we
can," said Sally Price, a
Yankeetown Realtor.
Residents who attended the
Monday night meeting were


Uninsured

to benefit
BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
Levy County residents
will soon have help with the
soaring costs of prescription
medicine, thanks to a deci-
sion made Tuesday during
a meeting of the Board of
County Commissioners.
Commissioner Lilly Rooks
asked the board to consider a
contract with the National As-
sociation of Counties (NACo)
that will provide a prescrip-
tion drug savings card to ev-
ery citizen of the county.
With almost 20 percent of
the county's residents un-
insured, Rooks said, it will
make medications more af-
fordable.
Honored at CVS, Wal-
Mart, Winn Dixie and North
Florida Pharmacy, the pro-
gram will cost the citizens
absolutely nothing, Rooks
said.

concerned that the proposed
136 new condominium units,
40 of which would be used
for full-time residents and the
others as rentals, would ruin
Yankeetown's rural charm.
"Why are you destroying
what God gave us?" asked
one resident on a note card.
The question, which went
unanswered, received a
standing ovation.
But despite the local
residents' vehement response
against the idea of developing
Yankeetown's river side,
developer Pete Spiller
remained clear that that was
exactly what he'd do.
"We are going to proceed


with the project," Spiller
said during his presentation.
"Change does happen."
Spiller said that it is in the
community's best interest
to work with him instead
of against him because his
company can bring many
amenities to the town without
tarnishing the environment.
"There is an incredible
amount of opportunity if we
team up and work together
to find solutions that both
preserve the beauty of this
town while improving its
economy," Spiller said.
Throughout the night,
Spiller reiterated his
commitmentto environmental


issues.
"I think that atthe end ofthis
project, the community will
be better off with the resort
than if nothing happened,"
Spiller said. Spiller added that
the addition of the two resorts
could actually improve the
river's water quality and
wastewater issues.
The project would create
about 130 full-time jobs
with a payroll of about $2.2
million.
"We'd look to Yankeetown
first, then out of town, and if
we needed more people, we'd
check out the region," Spiller
said.
Yankeetown, which has


a population of almost 700,
would probably encounter
about 100 more people, most
of whom are tourists, on any
given day, by the time this
development finishes if it
went as planned.
"What kind of town is
equipped to handle that kind
of growth?" asked resident
Steve West.
Spiller countered that
Yankeetown would only profit
from the tourists and 'that
investors of the development
have spent near $1 million in
researching how the resort

MANAGING EDITOR
Any woman who has ever writ-
ten a book will tell you it's like
being pregnant.
From the initial stages where
you pinch yourself to make sure it's real,
through the ups and downs of writes and re-
writes to finally watching it delivered to your
door, each day is bittersweet and uncertain as
to What it will hold.
In a real-life pregnancy, a woman typi-
cally has 40 weeks to brace herself for the
baby. But for Chiefland's Carolyn Cohens,
her baby in the form of a book, had only half
that time--about five months--to flourish and
grow.
In January, the release of Black America
Series Levy County Florida ended the
months of waiting and anticipation and now
Cohens is thrilled to show off the product
that she nurtured.
The book, at 128 pages, showcases the his-
tory of black Levy Countians from the 1800s
to the present in a series of black and white
photography.
Many of the pictures were shot by Cohens
throughout her life and filed away. Others
were borrowed from friends and neighbors.
Together they represent the rich history of
her ancestors from domestic service to back

breaking turpentine dipping at Six Mile
Still.
"I wanted it to be light, easy to read and
enjoyable," Cohens said from her Chiefland
home last week. "I want it to bring back
memories."
And indeed it did! As she turned each
page carefully, she pointed out memorable
people in her life and recollected story after
story of how she had been influenced by
them.
Bused from Chiefland to Williston to at-
tend high school in the early.1960s, Cohens
is filled with stories of early mornings
and late evenings on buses that had no air
conditioning in the summer and no heat in
the winter.
Pointing to a portrait of a well-dressed
couple, Cohens said they had been her
teachers and had graciously transported her
back and forth to school for a time.
Except she didn't see it that way back
then. The last thing she wanted to be was
cooped up with two "old" people on a ride
to Williston.
She wanted to be on the bus with her
friends. She now realizes that while she
was envying her friends and their camara-
derie on the bus, they were probably envy-

About five years ago,
Vince Nazworth, a student
at Bronson High School was
considered an at-risk student.
Vince .,as in the 9th grade
and at the- time hung out with
a group of teens irhin treated
school like a social life.
Weekends were one big
party. Vince and his friends
drank alcohol and then be-
gan trying drugs. Vince and
his friends had several minor
run-ins with law enforcement
and spent many days serving
in-school and out-of-school
suspensions.
Vince's grades were poor
and he had to repeat the 9th
grade. Vince s home life was
not very good either.
During the fall of 2003,
Vince got tired of the prob-
lems he was having at home.
He decided that he did not
like where his life was head-
ing. He left home and spent
several weeks staying with
different friends from school.

Log Cabin Quilters

rack up at Tampa fair

BY WINNELLE HORNE
CORRESPONDENT
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum.
Seems all the talk was about our trip to the Fair. It was cold
to start but when we got there, it had warmed up and everyone
had a wonderful day.
We met up with some of the Joyful Heart Quilters, as they
are part of us. I started their club in 1991 and each year we put
their quilts and crafts along with ours.
We entered 24 quilts and crafts and won 17 ribbons.
Vera Jordan won 1 st and Best of Show on her Indian Jumper.
Janice Brickwell and Christy Kimbrell (13) won 1st on their
quilts. Marie Poppenhagen won 1st on two dolls. There was a
third on a quilt and two honorable mentions. These were for
Log Cabin Quilters.
Joyful Hearts won a 1st, four seconds and two third place
awards. Oh yes, Marilyn won three first places on her dolls.
I was very thankful for everyone who worked so hard all
year and to win anything at Tampa is great as you are compet-
ing against 67 counties. Now we start to look forward to next
year and hope we can do as well again.
Karen, who comes from Live Oak, has quilted her first pil-
low and she started on the second. Her quilting is improving
and it makes her feel so good. One more trip to go down and
pick up and it will be done next week. We then go on to what
comes up next.
Lunch was so good with chicken and noodles, chicken cas-
serole, turnips, more vegetables, lots of salads, garlic bread,
peach crisp (Marie), great cakes and strawberries. Five guests
and 19 members were present.
Winnelle Horne is the director of the Levy County Quilt
Museum.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


OPINION


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2006


YOUR VIEW

I

Setting the record straight

To the editor:
While I appreciate the interview with the Journal and Mr.
Sirmons' efforts, I feel it is only proper that I do make a few
corrections and explanations.
On the Moe question, right off the bat, this was meant to
bring a little levity to the situation and to not cast any asper-
sions in Mr. Robinson's direction. My only experience with
Mr. Robinson has been as I attended several council meet-
ings. I failed to see Mr. Robinson voice an opinion on any of
the issues presented.
While it is true that I am a former Marine, I have also
worked at various jobs, depending on where my husband's
work carried us, including seven years with the Internal Rev-
enue Service as an agent. I have a degree in accounting and I
have also worked for Perry and Beverly Koon at their H&R
Block office in Cross City.
The book, "Williston: Crossroads of Florida" is a project
that was initially started back in the 1980s, but was taken up,
again and is now near completion and may be on sale in the
fall of this year. I am NOT writing the book. It is a commu-
nity effort by some of the most marvelous Williston citizens
who devote their own time to put this together for publica-
tion.
Williston is a wonderful place to reside in, but seems to
be caught in a grow or bust state. With proper consider-
ations to roads (in the next two to three years, we have over
2,000 more vehicles in our city streets), drainage, added law
enforcement and fire protection. This and much more needs
to be added to the equation--plus jobs. The younger people
want to work here. There is very little industry for them.
In conclusion, I would like to say it is an honor and a priv-
ilege to run for any public office. This is one of our rights in
this country. Please uphold your end and get out and vote on
March 7.

Thanks for job well done
To the editor:
My husband and I are first time visitors to Cedar Key,
coming at the raves of our flying group who were here be-
fore. We're staying at Island Place through Monday morn-
ing, having arrived last Sunday morning.
I picked up a copy of the Journal today at the grocery
store by the post office. This evening when I couldn't sleep,
I read-every'rticle arid'every ad. I so"\ery much enjoyed '
everything, especiallyyour mission-statement and "Miss
Honey Says". Her statement of "Don't make plans, make
options" was just what I needed to read.
We're here on a working vacation. My husband is a broad-
cast broker and I am a nurse. When we return, I'm about to
take on a challenging position of caring private duty for a
17-year-old boy with a 6 months mentality due to a genetic
defect. I have much anxiety over his complicated care.
On top of that, my husband had a frightening fainting spell
by the pool today. This "always healthy" man gave me a
shock to see him so helpless. Miss Honey's column was just
what I needed tonight!
Your entire publication was down home, well written and
very, very informative. I've seen so many opportunities in
Cedar Key alone for a marketing expert. .I was in radio 29
years before becoming a nurse and I instinctively see missed
opportunities in promotions.
You've got such potential for economic growth while still
maintaining your small community feel.
I just wanted to take time to congratulate you on a job well.
done. Our hometown community paper is mostly advertising
and public service generic ads.
Might I suggest a small map in each issue telling visitors
where these other towns are located? The music fest looks
great, but where is Bronson? Don't assume that everyone
knows where these towns are located. A small visitor's sec-
tion would have been much appreciated.
Once again, thanks for a job well done. I'm not sure I've
ever read another paper from cover to cover!
Best wishes for continued success!

Staying connected in a busy world


W however said
"Never put
off tomor-
row what
you can do today" must have
known me.
I am a procrastinator . ..
of the discriminating sort.
If I get a new piece of
furniture or an appliance,
I can't wait to get it out of
the package, in place and
hooked up--even if it takes
all night.
Unwrapped Christmas
packages don't lay under
my tree for days waiting for
admiration. No, they're put
away in their place almost
before the last bow is picked
up off the floor.
Groceries find themselves
from the bags to the cup-
boards in record time and my
coffee is made before I go to
bed.
But I procrastinate about
the obvious: paying bills,
seeing doctors, getting my
hair cut, doing laundry, writ-
ing stories.
Well, let me clarify. I write
the checks for the bills, I put
stamps on the envelopes and
then I carry them over my
sunvisor for two weeks be-
fore I finally drop them in a
mailbox--even though I have
been to the post office every
day it's open.
And my laundry. . well,
I put it off until I feel like I'll
have to buy more underwear
or traipse to the laundromat.
And then I carry the clean
clothes in baskets around in
my trunk for another week
before I lug them inside.
And the writing? You'd
think as someone who makes
her living the way I do, I'd
be eager to start the writing,
get it finished and head out.
Wrong. Some weeks I am
faced with four or five major
stories and I wait right until
all the pages are finished


THINKING OUT
LOUD



Carolyn Risner

except the ones with holes
where my stories will go,
then I sit down and write.
It's not that I dislike writ-
ing.
I dislike thinking. My
brain hurts sometimes be-
cause I've thought so much.
Once I sit down and actu-
ally commit to writing, I sail
through. It's just that actual
commitment that I put off.
My only real resolution
this year was to be a better
friend.
With the advent of e-mail,
there is no excuse for me to
not drop my friends a line or
two occasionally, just to let
them know I am still among
the living.
So with that thought in
mind, that this year --2006-
- would be the year I recon-
nect in a mighty way, I did
just that.
As I was addressing Val-
entine cards for my children
(which did get mailed in a
timely manner), I dug out an
address of a pen pal I have
had for over 30 years.
Lisa's note was mailed
over a year ago to an old, old
address of mine and I had
not taken the time to reply.
She even wrote she had
e-mail and included the
address, and still I procrasti-
nated.
My excuses were ample-
-it's Christmas and I'll do it
when the holidays are over;
my children's activities keep
me busy in my free time;


I don't
have time
to write
all that's
happened
in the last
year; I'm
moving
and taking
a new
job. You
get the


picture.
So I dropped her a Val-
entine with just this note "I
haven't forgotten you, but I
have moved. E-mail me."
And lo and behold, she did
as soon as she got the card.
This time, I didn't hesitate.
I e-mailed her back and we
picked up right where we
had left off.
Sort of.
"The last I heard from
you," she wrote, "was when
your mom died oopss that
was 2001) but I always knew
we'd reconnect."
I'm glad she had that faith
in me.
An elderly friend of mine,
Lettie Pearl Burton, once
told me that "People do ex-
actly what they want to do."
She was talking about
church members who make
up excuses not to work in the
church.
But her sentiment applies
to everything.
We do what we want and
then we make up excuses to
cover that which we don't
want to do. (Reference my
laundry, bill paying and cor-
respondence.) Excuses make
it more palatable to say "no".
Life is short. Friendships
are rare. Being connected is
where it's at.
Reach out and touch. Do.
Do. Do. Don't put off tomor-
row what you can do today.
Except those stories I
mentioned . .


Against

growth ?

Fight harder


I've been a reporter
for about one month
in Levy County, and
each week I'm writing a
story about
growth.
Just
about every
resident I've
interviewed
seems
determined
to keepjle .y
County's
country
atmosphere.
However,
one town JEFF
is actually SIRMONS
fighting for Columnist
it.

Yankeetown, a community
ignored by many maps,
may become more
commercialized with the
addition of a downtown
resort, and the residents are
downright angry.
About 180 residents
heckled the developer at
Monday night's meeting.
Here are a few examples of
their anger.
When I went to take a
picture of developer Pete
Spiller, an elderly woman
pulled me aside and
whispered to me, "You can
label that 'Big Bullsh@t.'"
After Spiller said
that he fell in love with
Yankeetown's charm, the
woman sitting beside me,
Sunny Price, asked why,
then, was he ruining the
charm.

Monday, Feb. 20,
V 2006, 3 a.m. Good
morning! I just woke up
with the granddaddy of all
headaches!
Yes, Donald, I know if
you had a head like mine, it
would hurt, too. But remem-
ber, you can't have a head
pain without a brain, or so
I've been told! And Since
Gum Drop (Elton) my dear
friend has been gone I need
someone to pick on, and
that's you, OK?
I had a rough day yester-
day, but Jesus was with me
and I am still in the land of
the living. When friends turn
away or say things that hurt,
Jesus still cares and takes
care of his own. I am so glad

I have a
forgiving
heart, and
above
all else
a friend
like Je-
sus.
I have
a new
puppy.
His name is Little Bit! He
is so tiny, but he is a little
sweetie and yes, I love him
very much! He is in my chair
with me, Sweet Pea is in the
rocking chair and Peewee
is on the back of my chair
I am sitting in. Yes, we are
a close-knit family! Ha, my
little furry friends, and me
but remember they love me


without reservations. In turn
I love them.
Coffee tastes good this
morning; want a cup?
I had a very rough day
yesterday, I don't know
why, but it seemed like
everywhere I went I got
hurt or upset and I cried
coming home. But, I know
God loves me and will not
put more on me than I can
handle, so when you pray,
please pray for me. I know
God can handle every prob-
lem and I will say, thanks
Lord in advance!
Well, I think I'll make
a good pot of homemade
vegetable beef soup today

SGT. SCOTT FINNEN of
the Levy County Sher-
iff's Training Depart-
ment was training six
new officers on how
to use the TASER gun.
Before training, the of-
ficers had to be taser-
ed with the gun first so
they would know how
it would feel if they
were to actuallyuse it
orn.an individual while
on duty.

A woman dressed in
a devil suit showed up
with a sign reading 'Save
Yankeetown.' Even the devil
thought the developer too
evil to support.
You must give Spiller his
due-no one forced him to
stand in front of a partisan
crowd and try to sell them
an idea he knew they'd most
likely reject.
And Spiller did validly
point out that the resorts
would spruce up the town's
economy. He also said he
and his company would do
everything in their power
to preserve Yankeetown's
charm.
But it was very clear that
the locals were willing to
pay nearly any price to stop
Yankeetown from becoming
a resort town. Spiller
could've been Santa Claus
and the residents would've
rejected him.
Even though Spiller's
developers own the land
and are intent upon building
on it, and have every right
to, nearly one third of all
Yankeetown residents felt
strongly enough to voice
their opinion.
This is is the first community
I've seen take a cohesive
stand against growth.
Most often, I see
developers selling ideas
for neighborhoods receive


only one or two complaints.
Almost always, these
complaints come from
adjacent landowners.
That's not going to
be enough to sway most
commissions.
If you are against
developing Levy County,
you have to follow
Yankeetown's example and
fight harder because all I can
see is more development.
Let's face it-Levy
County is beautiful, and it
is cheap to live here. It's a
developer's dreamland. It's
only fitting that Spiller's
presentation was given at
Yankeetown School, which
is located off of Field of
Dreams Parkway.
Clones of Pete Spiller are
arriving in Levy County.
Since this is America, they
have every right to.
And this is not all
bad, either. The more
development that goes on,
the more tax dollars that go
to local governments. Also,
with more people come more
jobs and more services.
So the smart thing to
do would be to actively
participate in managing
the growth. There's still
a lot of untapped land in
Levy County. No town is
even close to a five-digit
population. Therefore, even
considering the farmland,


there's plenty of room to
grow.
Even though residents of
Yankeetown had no chance
of scaring off Spiller, they
let him know how they felt.
This is the way every Levy
County community should
act.
It's amazing how powerful
someone can be, even
without the power to vote.
And who knows, maybe
communities and developers
will soon find a solution
together that satisfies both.
And let's not forget, it
would take decades for Levy
County to even resemble
something commercialized.
On my drive back home, I
encountered at least a dozen
deer staring at me from the
side of the road.

Sheriff tells Gator Club about Boys' Ranch


The Tri-County Gator Club
gathered on the evening of
Feb. 13 and was privileged
to have Levy County Sher-
iff Johnny Smith as a guest
speaker. '
Sheriff Smith educated the
club about "Florida's Char-
ity for Florida's Children"
the Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranches. A heart-warming
video highlighted the preven-
tion program started in 1957.
The focus of the now four
ranches and two camps is to
save children from situations
and problems that find them
part of the criminal justice
system by providing a place
to learn the necessary skills to
lead productive lives. All 67
Florida sheriffs actively sup-
port the ranches and camps.
Club members were encour-
aged by the young adults in


the video
that spoke
about the
difference
the ranches
qeand their
staff made
in their
lives.
After
the video SMITH
Sheriff Smith
spoke of his
involvement with the youth
ranch program and answered
questions from the club.
Members commended him
on his pro-active coordina-
tion of the sex-offender pro-
gram recently implemented.
Also discussed was the name
change of the community
volunteer program. The
V.O.I.C.E. program is now
the C.O.P. program Com-


munity On Patrol.
The club appreciates
Sheriff Smith and Sgt.Scott
Finnen (University of Flor- .
ida- cl,1as,.of;1990) for tak-
ing the. time.to come and be
with us. Anyone interested
in the Florida Sheriff's
Youth Ranches or the COP
program can contact the
Levy County Sheriff's De-
partment.
To support the club's schol-
arship program, door prizes
are raffled at each meeting.
The raffle prizes were do-
nated by club member Mary ,
Marshall. Patricia Auvil and
George Daniels were the win-
ners.

The Nerd comes to


Chiefland in March


Suwannee Valley Players
will debut The Nerd, a come-
dy in two acts by Larry Shue.
The Story: Now an aspir-
ing young architect in subur-
bia, Willum Cubbert 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 written to Rick to
say that, as long as he is alive,
"You will have somebody on
Earth who will do anything
for you" -- so Willum is de-
lighted 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,
little intelligence, and less
tact. Rick's continued pres-
ence among Willum and his
friends leads to one uproari-
ous incident after another, un-
til the normally placid Willum
finds himself contemplating
violence, a dire development
which, happily, is staved off
by the surprising twist ending
of the play.
Performances are March
3-5, 9-12, 17-19 (three con-
secutive weekends, with a
special 'student/senior night'
performance on March 9.)
Performances begin at 8 p.m.
on Thursday, March 9 and
Friday and Saturday nights,
with Sunday matinees at 2:30
p.m. Tickets are $6 for adults
and $4 for students and chil-
dren over five years of age.
All children under six are ad-
mitted free (but may have to
sit in a lap). The March 9th
performance is a special stu-
dent/senior night for a dollar


off the regular ticket price
to all seniors over 55 years
of age and students. (please
bring I.D.) Call for group
rates of over 10 people. All
productions are held at the
Chief Theatre, 25 E. Park
Ave., Chiefland.
Tickets can be purchased
from ticket outlet Suwannee
Valley Internet and Comput-
ers (114 S. Hwy 19), or cast
members, or at the box office
in the theatre 45 minutes be-
fore curtain.

Perkins Financial Group
today announced the cre-
ation of its Seeds for Educa-
tion Program, a community
relations program to support
a variety of K-12 education-
al. programs throughout the

"We believe we can make
more of an impact with our
community relations efforts
and volunteer hours by em-
phasizing educational pro-
grams for our area students,"
said Todd Etheridge, vice
president of Perkins Finan-
cial Group. "Community
service has been a hallmark
of our business since Roy P.

century ago. We believe the
education of our area's chil-
dren is particularly impor-
tant to our community."
ThE ee f-'Euca-
tion Program will include a
number of programs for the
area's elementary, middle
and high schools.
The program will kick-
off this spring with the es-
tablishment of the "Perkins
Financial Group President's
Scholarship", a 4-year,
$6,000 ($1,500 a year to
the recipient for four years)
scholarship that will be
awarded to an area high
school senior each year who
best demonstrates the val-
ues of the Perkins family
of businesses: service and
trust.
"Each of our six area
high schools will nominate
one senior for this scholar-
ship," continued Etheridge.
"One of the six students
will be chosen to receive


the 4-year. $6.000 scholar-
ship; the other five students
will each receive a one-time
$500 scholarship."
In addition. Perkins Fi-
nancial Group will begin a
program to plant a live oak
tree at each area elementary
school in honor of the cen-
turv-old live oak tree at the
Perkins State Bank location
in Williston and to empha-
size the importance of en-
\ironmental issues to area
elementary students.
"'The live oak tree has
long been a symbol of our
company and signifies the
strength and longevity Per-
kins Financial Group has in
providing financial services
to the citizens of north cen-
tral Florida," said President
Frank Etheridge.
The company Nwill also.
'..o^iU.0p;6y/fig repay

The vision: To light up Chiefland


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDIriOR
The people have spoken
and Chiefland officials
listened. But to do something
about the people's concerns
will cost a pretty penny and
leaders are now faced with an
expensive project.
The issue is Christmas
lights.
City commissioners said
they had received several
complaints this past holiday
season about the city's lack
of light and people wanted
to see a more illuminated
Chiefland.
At an earlier city
commission meeting, the
task of what to do was placed
on the Vision Committee.
Last Thursday the group of
volunteers learned that not
only will the city have to
purchase new decorations, it
will also have to pay to have
the power poles outfitted for
the new lights.
The committee learned
there are about 157 power
poles in the city of which 107
belong to Progress Energy
and 50 to the co-op.
Only electric company
employees can install the
necessary brackets. After
installation, city workers will
be able to mount the lights on
the brackets and plug them in
annually.


Not all poles will be able
to have lights, the committee
learned. Specific standards
govern which poles can and
those limitations include if it
is 18 feet tall from the base
and how many telephone or
TV cables are on the pole.
Committee members Andy
Andrews and John Henry
Donaldson were authorized
to speak with both power
companies and negotiate
prices.

THE LIGHTS
The lights themselves range
from $180 to over $700. Each
member of the committee
was given a packet and
asked to study the different
types and prices prior to the
next meeting. Committee
members agreed to stay away
from those decorations that
have tinsel because they do
not store/hold up as well.
The question of where to
install the lights was also a
major discussion Thursday.
At first everyone thought city
limit to city limit, but then
realized that encompasses
a broad span including
Highways 19, 27A, 341, 345
and 320.
Andrews suggested the
decorations stay within the
business district and later,
over time, the committee can
evaluate other areas as more


funds are available.
Chairwoman Betty Walker
agreed. "Yes, the main drag,"
she said, adding when visitors
pass through Newberry and
Gainesville it is only the
business district that is lit.
Once installation costs
and light prices are added,
the committee will know
how much money is needed
to complete the project.
Preliminary estimates are
upward of $30,000.
Committee members said
the city may have to start
small by buying only a small
amount of new fixtures and
each year add to it.
It was also suggested that
perhaps businesses may want
to sponsor a pole by donating
the money to purchase the
lights and fixtures.

FESTIVAL LOCATION
A larger, better location
for the Watermelon Festival
was also discussed during the
committee meeting.
Committee members
proposed to Barbara
Lunsford, an officer with the
festival's sponsoring group
the Chiefland Woman's
Club, that the two-city block
locale known as the icehouse
property be considered.
The property, located
immediately off Highway 19
is vacant and affords more


space for vendors.
"It's open green space,"
Andrews said. "A lot of it was
preserved for a reason."
"You're running out of
room," Donaldson said.
In addition to a larger area
for vendors, staging and
.entertainment, there is also
more parking, committee
members said. That, in itself,
Walker said, would more than
likely attract more people
off Highway 19 to stop and
participate.
Andrews said the increased
parking and larger space
would possibly attract more
people to visit downtown
merchants.
Water is on the property
and power can be obtained.
Lunsford said she would
report back to her committee
with the recommendation.
VISION MEETINGS
With six of its eight
members present Thursday
evening, members of the
Vision Committee agreed that
a quorum to hold meetings
would be 50 percent of the
members attending. It also
decided to increase its number
to 10 or 12, thinking it will
be better to make decisions
and plan if m6re people are
participating.
The Vision Committee will
meet the second Tuesday of
each month at 6 p.m.


Scholarship deadline is April 3
The Emma Belle Townsend Scholarship is given annually
to an individual enrolled in the Levy County Schools. This

SBookContinued from front

ing her, too because she had the sweet ride.
That the book was released just before the start of Black
History Month is also exciting for Cohens who takes pride in
her heritage.
In the preface of her book she writes, "The book is an ef-
fort to show the hard work, pride, love and determination to
survive; and this only makes one stronger."
Cohens exemplifies the desire to overcome, succeed and
learn from the past.
"We do the best we can," she said, "and make life the best
we can."
Cohens' love of Levy County was ingrained at an early
age.
She grew up in Chiefland listening to her grandparents'
stories learning something about hardship and hard work.
After high school, she married and lived in two foreign
countries. She recently remarked that if she could have
swam from Okinawa to Cedar Key she would have.
After the demise of her marriage, Cohens returned to
Chiefland where she nursed a sick mother and ultimately
settled into her childhood home.
"I was born in that room," she said, pointing to a closed
door. "The door frame is older than I am."
Her grandfather bought the land in 1936, paying only $25
for it. At night, after long days in the woods, he would build
a fire and the neighbors would come and help him raise his
house--the house Cohens lives in today.
It is her dream to restore the house while maintaining the
integrity of it. Gradually, she will replace some of the old
with the new, but things like original windows from Sears
and the door frame will stay because they are as much as
part of her history as the people who lived in the house.
"The love of home brought me back," she said. "I'll stay
here until my time."
One of several children, Cohens' home is the place they
all come to and it is there they love, laughter and good food
prevail.
The rich history of Levy County and its black citizens will
live on through Cohens' book and that is all she ever wanted.
"This book is dedicated to our ancestors who toiled
through struggles and worked hard; some lost their lives to
leave us with an unbeatable and unforgettable legacy," she
said.
Cohens will be available at the Bronson Library Feb. 27 to
sign copies of her book. More information can be found on
page 2.

Levy County's traffic


fatalities double

Almost as high as Alachua

BY JEFF SIRMONS
STAFF WRITER
Traffic fatalities in Levy County more than doubled in
2005 to 30, up from 14 in 2004.
Officials suggest the rise is due to new drivers to the
area and driver distraction.
"There hasn't been any roadway or intersection alone
standing out as the major problem," said Lt. Michael
Burroughs, Florida Highway Patrol public information
officer.
"This could be attributed to the population boom.
We're seeing mainly driver errors."
Burroughs said the percentage of alcohol-related fatal
accidents stayed at 30-35 percent, which is around the
average.
"Rural roadways drive different than city roadways,"
he said. "Some drivers are probably not used to stop signs
after miles and miles of country."
Levy County Sheriff's spokesman Chuck Bastak agreed
with Burroughs, citing driver error as the prevailing
reason for the increase, although he did say there were
some hot spots located on US Highway 27 Alt.
"There are some spots along the highway where there
are no markings to indicate lanes, so we're working to
correct that," Bastak said.
Alachua County, which has about seven times the
population of Levy County, suffered 34 traffic fatalities,
down from 52 in 2004. Burroughs said that was because
of Alachua County's joint program with FHP to combat
the problem.
"We're trying to form co-ops with all the county police
stations," Burroughs said. "Look how effective it was in
Alachua County."

Clay shooting is like 'golf with noise' *Resort


Continued from front


BY JEFF SIRMONS
STAFF WRITER
All that remained after
Williston's Rhino Rally
was orange pebbles and a
few lucky orange discs that
survived the impending
execution by shotgun.
Diane Nelson and her son,
Steven, were two of the finest
orange-disc executioners
at the event. Both won
their divisions, with Steven
missing only six flying discs
out of 100.
"This sport is particularly
fun when you do well," said
Steven, who is the 2003
Florida state sporting clay
champion. "Owe it all to my
mom."
Diane, the 2002 U.S.
sporting clay lady national
champion, started him
shooting when he was only
5.
"He's gotten a lot better
since then," she remarked.
Steven, who is also skilled
with a paintball gun, looks
forward to September's
national event, where he
placed second in 2002.
Sporting clay course
designer Doc Bradford,
a retired surgeon from
Bozeman, Mont., describes
the sport as 'golf with noise'
because it involves a lot
of older people who are
generally hearing impaired
and driving around in golf
carts.
"Difference is these golf
carts are usually camouflaged
and instead of a seven-iron,
you get a gun," Bradford


can benefit Yankeetown.
"We're not going to add any boat traffic to the Withlacoochee
River," Spiller said. "I know most of you don't believe that,
but it's true. We can't add boats to the river."
The complexes, located side by side on a 10-acre plot
alongside the river, would come with a total of 128 boat
slots.
Sunny Price, a Yankeetown Realtor and sister to Sally, said
that she is for change, but that the proposed three to four story
buildings wouldn't fit in.
"I fully understand change, but we must manage it," said
Sunny, a longtime Yankeetown resident. "This is a fishing
village-a resort is not within the culture of this town."
The proposed resort is still in the planning stage, and can
still be canceled by the Yankeetown City Commission. If
everything goes as planned, both resorts would be complete
in about two years.


RYAN LOWREY, 16, won the AA division sporting clay event at Williston's Rhi-
no Rally.


said.
But even with a surgeon's
accuracy, Bradford was no
match for Ryan Lowrey, 16,
who captured the AA division
championship by shooting a
two-day total of 161 out of a
possible 200 discs. Bradford
shot a 59 over one day.
"He wasn't near as good


as I was two years ago," said
Ryan's father, Michael, who
won the B division. "Now,
maybe I'll catch him about a
quarter of the time if I'm real
lucky."
The B division is two skill
levels below the AA division.
"I was trained by
champions," Ryan said.


One such trainer was
Michael Bittmann, a member
of the Team USA sporting
clay shooters who has trained
professionals for 13 years.
"Discs fly in different
directions and requires a
lot of skill," Bittman said.
"Ryan, however, makes it
look easy."

ing was complete, the
scores were tallied and (if, V "

Bronson M4sic Festivae 2006


BY ,IIFF1 SIRIONS
S '.\i\'i VRI Ii R
Kids didn't have to wail
in line much at the Bronson
Music Festival. It wasn't too
hot either. You didn't have
to park miles away and the
bleachers weren't overrun by
beer cans.
Only about 3,500 showed
up for the five-day event,
which is less than half of
what was anticipated. Those
who showed enjoyed it that
much more.
"I wanted to do this kind of
thing back in 1975," said Ed
Harris, a former NASCAR
racer who built the Bronson
Motor Speedway, which is
where the event took place.
"I think it's great for the
county."
Even the vendors seemed
O.K. with the low turnout.
"Foritsfirstyear, everything
went fabulous," said Ron
Bandy, a Williston resident
who built the world's largest
pinball machine, which
stands at 40 feet. "Since the
community is sort of show-
then-go, I kind of expected
this low turnout."
One station was less phased
by the low turnout. The
children seemed to gravitate
toward the laser tag float.
"Come on, it's laser tag-
it's freakin' cool," said Jay
Enck, operator of the Lazer
Runner Battle Cruiser float.
Raymond Powers, 14,
smoked the competition by
400 points in one epic battle.
"I was going for a little girl
the whole time, and he was
just shooting everybody,"
said Cody Blair, his closest
competitor. "He played
smarter."
Another popular event
involved a. giant mallet and
'beer cans..
The Ladies Amvets
Auxiliary, Post 88, asked the
children to help them crush
the cans.
Avalon Harris stepped up
and powerfully shrunk a can
of Budweiser. By the time
she was through with it, all
you could read was 'B.'
"It was pretty cool," she

The Bronson festival
queen, also 14, impressed the
judges with her knowledge of
country music and her desire
to go into the medical field.
"I want to be a traveling
nurse and travel around the
world and help people,"
Perkins said.
By Sunday's end, Bob
Levesque, who ran the event,
said he looks forward hosting
Levy County's first County
Fair in a long, long time.
"I can't wait," he said,
adding that next year, he
and the Bronson Chamber
of Commerce will develop
the second annual Bronson
Music Festival.
Ed Harris, 69, reflected
on how much the Bronson
Speedway had changed since
he built it in 1975.
"Bluegrass music makes
you think," he said, as he
listened to the Nawlins Po
Boyz, who were the first
group to perform at Bronson's
first ever music festival.
Harris was the first person
who braved leaving the
bleachers and listening to the
music
"I always wanted to do
something like this here when
I owned it," Harris said.
Harris was one of the first
of 3,500 local music lovers

BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
When Irish poet W.B.
Yeats wrote that "Education
is not the filling of a pail, but
the lighting of a fire." he may
have had a premonition of
Allison Monyei and Monica
Scott.
The two women were
Saturday's keynote speakers
at the 8th Annual Black
History Month celebration.
Sponsored yearly by the
Black History Committee, the
program is designed to raise
funds for college scholarships
to deserving black students.
Monyei and Scott were both
scholarship recipients and
each returned to Chiefland
Saturday to tell how it helped
fund their educations and
fulfill their dreams.
"The scholarship was truly
a blessing," Monyei said.
The daughter of Alice
and Emmanuel Monyei was
the first African-American
valedictorian from Chiefland
High School. She attended
the University of Florida
where she earned a Bachelor
of Science degree in health
science and a Bachelor of
Arts degree in criminology.
She also has a minor in
sociology. Monyei is now in
the graduate program at the
University of North Florida
in Jacksonville where she is
pursuing a master's degree in
criminal justice.
Monyei described life as
a journey and said the first
question everyone must ask
himself is "Who is the captain
of my journey?"
She said she has relied on
her faith and God to guide her
and knows He will not steer
her wrongly.
She also encouraged
those in attendance to never
be satisfied with what they
have-to always seek more,
to be proud of what they've
accomplished and to remain
humble.
"Somebody's sacrifice is
your gift today," she said.
"Let us remember those who
came before us. Remember
our roots."
Monyei challenged the
younger generation to "step
up and step out."
"It's not about me," she
said. "It's about what God
has for us. Look inside and
see what journey God has for
you and stay on the path."
Scott, a 2000 graduate
of Chiefland High School,
holds a Bachelor of Science
degree in education from
Florida State University. She
did her student teaching in
Plymouth, England and today
is a teacher and coach at Holy
Comforter Episcopal School
in Tallahassee.
"Commitment leads to self
fulfillment," Scott said, citing
NBA legend Michael Jordan
as an example of someone
who didn't take no for an
answer, stayed committed
to his dream and saw it
fulfilled.
Jordan did not make his
high school's basketball team
during his sophomore year,
but came back the next year
and tried again.
Scott also spoke of the
commitments that Harriet
Tubman had to see slaves
escape to freedom, Jackie
Robinson to play baseball,
Rosa Parks to have equal
rights and Oprah Winfrey
to overcome her humble
beginnings and succeed.
She referenced Jesse
Owens, who was not
acknowledged by Adolph
Hitler for his Olympic
victories because of his
color.
"The same thing happened

And the only cost to the
county will be through the
dues it pays annually to
NACo, which amounts to
some $500.
"It's a win-win situation,"
Rooks said.
Once the contract is en-
tered, it will take six to eight
weeks to complete the pro-
cess and discern how best to
distribute the cards. Savings
are expected to be between
10 and 50 percent.
Those with insurance/pre-
scription coverage can uti-
lize the NACo program as a
supplement, or in the event
some drugs aren't covered by
independent coverage.
Rooks also pointed out
that inmate medication may
be purchased on these cards,
thereby saving the taxpayer
money.
The county will disperse
more information on the plan
in the weeks ahead since the
commissioners unanimously
approved the contract to a
round of applause.
