BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
The town of Bronson has
until May 2 to see a major
building project through or
it will have to dig deeply in
its pockets to repay about $1
million.
And the way it looks right
now, the only thing in the
town's pockets is a wad of
lint and that concerns the
mayor and council.
At Monday night's meet-
ing, the council read a let-
ter from Dick Edwards who
oversees the Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG) that is funding the
project. CDBGs are awarded
to counties and towns that are
economically depressed so
that low to moderate income
citizens can avail themselves
of the services.
Edwards' letter outlined
the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs concerns that the
project will not close out be-
fore the deadline.
"Closed out means," Ed-
wards wrote, "the new busi-
ness open and operating and
the 15 jobs have been created
and DCA has conducted its
final monitoring and autho-
rized the closeout documen-
tation to be submitted."
The new business is Hun-
gry Howie's, located right on
Highway 27A south of Bron-
son Town Hall.
The town deeded Ryan
Bell, the restaurant's owner,
the property and he broke
ground last fall on the pizza/
sub shop.
To date, that's about all
that's been done.
Tuesday morning the only
evidence of any work on the
lot is a block perimeter and
a sign proclaiming the future
opening of the restaurant.
That's what's gotten Bron-

son Council antsy.
"They're going to expect
us to pay this money back,"
said Mayor Beatrice Mongo.
"N'o ands, ifs or buts."
The mayor said she had
called Bell, whose office is in
Chiefland, several times and
he had not returned phone
calls.
The last time the mayor
spoke with Bell, she said, he
told her everything was in
place and going according to
plan.
Town attorney Ronald Ste-


vens also said his numerous
calls to Bell had not been re-
turned.
That's when Bronson resi-
dent Ray Semec asked if
the town could sue Bell for
breaking his contract.
Stevens pointed out that
Bell is not in default until
May 2.
Semec stressed urgency
in the matter by telling the
council he was a builder and
there was no way the project
could be up and running in
less than 60 days.


"We can't wait," Semec
said. "Next month's meeting
is too late."
Council members suggest-
ed sending a certified letter
to Bell but were cautioned
sending it didn't necessarily
mean he would accept it and
read it.
As a last resort Mongo
asked for volunteers to pay a
personal visit to Bell's Chief-
land office.
Councilman Frank Schuler
said he would go and "wait
him out" if necessary. Semec


volunteered to accompany
him.
Edwards' letter warned that
if the project is not closed out,
Bronson will not be eligible
to request another CDBG
during this funding cycle and
most likely will not be able
to apply until 2007 IF Con-
gress continues to fund the
program.
That's because in his 2007
budget request, President
George W. Bush did not ask

For Levy's uninsured, drug


program could be godsend


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
Florida ranks third behind
California and Texas in states
where residents do not have
health and/or prescription
insurance.
Nearly 3 million, or 18
percent, of Florida residents
are uninsured and of that
staggering number, 64
percent of them fall at 200
percent below the poverty
level, meaning perhaps, even
if it were affordable, they
could not fund it.
Across the United States
the numbers are increasingly
high, and eight of 10 of those
people come from working
families. Jobs held by the
working uninsured tend
to be in service industries
and smaller firms where
employees are less likely
to be offered coverage or
where it is unaffordable.
It's estimated that 18,000
adults die each year because
they are uninsured and can't
get appropriate health care,
according to the Institute of


Medicine (IOM).
The Partnership for
Prescription Assistance wants
to help change some of thosh
statistics and now offers its
services to Florida residents
to assist with prescription
costs.
By joining forces with
pharmaceutical companies
and doctors, PPA can help
qualified residents receive
many of their prescription
medications at little or no
cost.
Here's how it works.
Individuals who earn less
than $19,000 or families
of three who earn less than
$31,000 annually, may call
PPA toll free at 1-888-477-
2669 or visit its website at
www.pparx.org.
When calling, an operator
can help potential clients
complete an application to
see if they qualify and how
they can be helped.
"It's about 10 questions
in 10 minutes," said Mark
Grayson, who works for a
pharmaceutical company that

participates in the program.
"It's free and it's confidential.
We're not doctors and we
don't prescribe."
But if you've been to
the doctor and are hesitant
about shelling out $75 for
your cholesterol medicine,
PPA can search through the
database of more than 180
pharmaceutical companies to
locate one that might be able
to provide your medication at
little or no cost.
To date more than 1,200
partner organizations,
including AARP, Easter Seals
and the American Cancer
Society, have joined forces
to help increase awareness of
patient assistance programs.
Since its inception in April
2005, PPA has helped over 1
million people, more than 70
percent of whom are under 65,
connect to patient assistance
programs, Grayson said.
Once the application is
approved and the program
located, Grayson added,

The road doesn't end

Sterling Run is no cul-de-sac


BY JEFF SIRMONS
STAFF WRITER
Residents of Sterling Run, a subdivision
about two miles south of Chiefland, thought
they bought homes on a cul-de-sac.
The road they live on, however, is a county
road that may be extended to serve as the
main road for another subdivision, Mann's
Reserve.
The Levy County Planning Board voted
unanimously for the development Monday
night.
The road would also connect to another
main road; therefore, the road wouldn't end
in a cul-de-sac.
"We bought our property as a cul-de-sac,"
said Robert Pierce, who lives in Sterling
Run. "Our three kids play on the street. They
won't be able to play if it's a through street
wjth a,45 mph speed limit." .,.
Robert Mount, a Sterling Run homeowner,
expressed interest in gating the neighborhood
and making the road private. If this is done,
the county would not be able to extend the
road. However, Sterling Run residents would
be responsible for maintaining the road.
"I don't want to go into the business of


maintaining roads and controlling the surface
water on the roads," said homeowner Marvin
Woods.
The board expressed compassion for the
residents, but also said they were powerless to
stop the development.
"I certainly sympathize with anyone who
thought it was a cul-de-sac," said board member
Vaughn Lee. "The problem is that it's not a cul-
de-sac. It's dedicated to the county."
Mann's Reserve, if passed by the county
commission, will consist of eight nine-acre
residential lots.
The board unanimously approved each
development, with four subdivisions going
for final approval by the county commission
Tuesday.
In anticipation of a large turnout, the board
scheduled a special meeting on Tuesday, April
11 at 6:30 p.m. regarding a proposed Marsh
Harbor development in Cedar Key.
Marsh Harbor developers plan on building
365 new townhouses near a wetland.
Editor s Note: The Levy County Board of
County Commissioners unanimously approved
the preliminary plat of Mann's Reserve at
Tuesday S meeting.

Robinson retains council seat


BY JEFF SIRMONS
S I'AI WRI'IR
Incumbent Jerry Robin-
son won his re-election bid
against challenger Lyndsey
Hager for a seat on Willis-
ton's city council.
Although pleased with the
result, Robinson was disap-
pointed with the low turnout
of the election.
"I'm sad that so few people
showed up to vote today,"
Robinson said.
There are about 1,300 reg-
istered voters in Williston, but
only 186 voted in the election.
Robinson received 111 votes,
and Hager received 75.
All three proposed charter
amendments, one of which
switched the mayor's power
to suspend the fire and police
chief over to the city manag-
er, were rejected by voters.
Both Robinson and Hager
greeted voters at the poll
from early morning until the
polls closed at 7 p.m.
"I've been out here waving
and smiling at all the good
voting people," said Robin-
son while the election was
taking place. "I'm kind of
tired and I'm ready to get this
over with."
Joining them was County


ROBINSON


Commissioner Danny Ste-
vens, who voluntarily pro-
vided voters with venison
sausages, pound cake and
soda.

"I like venison because it's
something different," Stevens
said. "Last year I cooked ven-
ison hamburgers."
Stevens said he's held ven-
ison cookouts at each of the
past three or four elections.
Hager said his venison was a
"Williston voting past-time."
"Hopefully more people
will come out to the county


election in November," Ste-
vens said. "This venison
ought to get eaten up then."
The venison came from
deer hunted by Stevens.
The results were given at
Williston's city commission
meeting, which drew about
50 people despite lasting less
than an hour.
At the meeting, the Wil-
liston Shooters Club awarded
honorary memberships to
each of the members on the
county commission.
"Vice President Holcomb is
a better shot than Vice Presi-
dent Cheney I hope," quipped
Mayor Gerald Hethcoat.
"If I shoot you, you're not
walking away," Holcomb re-
sponded.
Each councilmember con-
gratulated Robinson on his
re-election. Robinson will be
up for re-election in 2008.
"I just want to thank my
opponent Lyndsey Hager for
running a good clean race,"
Robinson said. "1 only wish
the best for her."
The results of the election
are unofficial, but Barbara
Henson, the supervisor of
elections, said she is '99.9
percent' sure they are accu-
rate.


TWO WEEKS AGO Jake Marrall and Amy Anderson, students of Ms. Sherri

OPINION


THURSDAY, MARCH 9, 2006

i
Recycling program is broad
To the editor:
I have just learned something that seems worth sharing
with other residents of Levy County.
My daughter has shown me that the computer is more
than a means for wasting time, playing games, chatting with
friends and making simple tasks more complex, but rather is
a source of knowledge.
From her home in Silver Spring, Md., through the
Internet, she has found a web site for Levy County, Florida,
and on it an otherwise well-kept secret the specifics of the
county's recycling program. I now know that the program is
broader than is indicated on the recycling trailers.
For example, the doors on most recycling trailers call
for "newspapers, magazines and phone books," but the full
program also includes "inserts, catalogs, brown paper bags,
junk mail, flattened corrugated cardboard and office paper."
The trailers, or some of them, provide for aluminumn
- tin cans only" but the full list includes "metal: food and
beverage cans, clean foil products (aluminum foil, pie pans,
etc.) and empty aerosol cans."
Some trailers show "plastic jugs and bottles." The full
lists reads "plastic: rigid containers, marked #1 to 7." I had
thought only #1 and 2 were recyclable. The glass coverage is
about as indicated "green, clear, brown bottles and jars," and
the bottom line is "please rinse all containers and remove the
lids."
Perhaps you could find space sometime to publish
the whole notice. And it might be a good idea to include a
reminder that to dump other trash at the recycling trailers is a
crime. There is a noticeable amount of abuse of the program.
I love Levy County. My wife was born here.

Barney,


Crash and all things natural


Like thousands of
others, I heard the
sad news of Don
Knotts' death last
Monday morning after his
publicist announced it.
I gulped, shook my head
in disbelief and said to no
one in particular, "It can't be
... not Barney."
I was too young to appre-
ciate the Andy Griffith Showi
in its heyday, but I have
watched it every year since.
Shoot, I watch it practically
every day of my life because
it's on somewhere all the
time.
And still, to hear that
Barney was dead was such
a blow. We invite celebrities
into our homes on a daily
basis and over time they be-
come parts of our families.
I wager Barney Fife has
been in my living room more
over the past 25 years than
my own brother has.
This past weekend, TV
Land held a marathon salut-
ing Don Knotts and although
I have seen every episode
of Andy Griffith at least 50
times, I tuned in again.
There's something com-
forting in watching friend-
ship develop in front of your
eyes. And if Lucy and Ethel
were best friends, so were
Andy and Barney.
Barney, the bumbling
deputy who really wanted
to do his best but somehow
screwed up over and over,
was never made to be the
butt of the joke as long as
Andy was around.
Time and time again,
when Barney found himself
in a mess, Andy was there to
bail him out, turn the sce-
nario around and make his
deputy the hero--all without
letting Barney know.
That's what friends do.
They take care of each other.
They never let others make
fun of their friends and they
do whatever it takes to make
their friends look good, even
if it means it's at their own

expense.
Many times Andy could
have been praised for his
capture of some state crimi-
nal, but he would more often
than not let Barney take the
credit.
It boosted Barney's self
.esteem and taught a valuable
lesson in friendship: sacrifice
has its own rewards.
One of the last episodes
that featured Don Knotts
ended with these lines, para-
phrased of course:
Aunt Bee: I really miss
Barney. (He is now a detec-
tive in Raleigh.)
Andy: Yeah, me, too. Ya
know, there's only one Bar-
ney Fife.
And there will only be
one Don Knotts, for without
his sadsack look, his jittery
demeanor, his act of total
ineptness, there would have
been no Barney Fife.
And I'm going to miss
him.

The Oscar brouhaha is
over and I have to tell you, I
am delighted that Brokeback
Mountain didn't make the
sweep that was predicted.
I've got nothing against
the movie itself, or the short
story that inspired it, but the
media hype for the last four
months has been horrendous.
If I heard one more time
how difficult it was for two
heterosexual men to play
homosexual lovers, I think I
would have barfed.
For pete's sake, they're
actors: That's what they do.
Act. Pretend to be something
they're not.


Progress

F rom over the Great
Sea the first explor-
ers came. They
drove out the Indians and
most of the game. The early
white settlers, they did the
same. They called it Prog-
ress.
Next came the farmers, the
miners, the lumbermen; fish-
erman, too. All took from
the land and the gulfl', as their
numbers grew, some leaving
the earth poisoned and the
water around us no longer
clear blue, turning the sacred
cedar trees into lead pencils
to tally their scores. They
built houses, churches and
stores and lined up their boat
docks around every shore;


Did
anyone
make a
media
blitz when
Mark
Harmon
portrayed
serial


killer Ted
Bundy?
Did peo-
ple fear Anthony Hopkins
because his favorite meat
just happened to be human?
No, it was their jobs.
Aside from that though, I
was pulling for Crash. If you
haven't seen it, do so this
weekend. It's a deep, com-
plex movie that will force
you to face'the prejudices' in'
your own life. It is a ppwer-
ful movie and deserves to be
this year's Best Picture.

There's been some talk
lately about the Nature Coast
Trail being, well, too natural.
If I didn't know better, I
would think I was from Mis-
souri, because I don't take
anyone's word on anything.
No sir. Show me.
I'd walked on the trail
some last summer but since
Ken gave me a bike for
Christmas, I'm on it quite a
bit.
Now, I'm the first to tell
you I don't .like slithering
creatures or critters with
big, long pointed teeth, but
from the trailhead in town
to about four miles north,
I have found it to be well-
maintained and natural. It's a
wonderful bike ride and last
week, I tried to see as a first
time user would.
Same reaction. Natural.
Unspoiled. Relaxing.
Folks in Levy County are
so fortunate to have it.
As for the negativity?
Nip it. Nip it in the bud.

Levy needs

clean tourists

Spitting in a spring
and watching the
fish swim toward
it never gets boring. This
is because I
can see the
fish the entire
time.
That's how
clean the
water is in
Blue Springs,
where my
girlfriend
and I went
Saturday.
Along with JEFF
heckling SIRMONS
the fish, we
swng on Columnist
swung on
the swing
set and
tried to climb a couple trees.
We really could've done
anything because nobody
else was there on this 80 de-
gree, sunny yet breezy day.
But as nice as it was to
have a whole park to our-
selves, it seemed pretty
wasteful.
With a little advertising,
Levy County can make a lot
of money.
When I think of North
Florida parks, I think of
the Ocala National Forest,
the Ichetucknee River and
O'Leno State Park. Those
are all beautiful, natural
places that have maintained
their charm despite having
thousands of visitors each
year. The only problem is
that none of them are in
Levy County.
Yet Levy County has lots
of beautiful parks. There's
Devil's Hamm9ck, Inglis
Island, the island chain off
Cedar Key. All of these are
places that could attract hun-
dreds of clean visitors.
These visitors could stay
in motels, eat at local restau-
rants, pay for park admission
and rent boats. If they had
a good experience in Levy
County, they'd come back
with friends.
This is a free boost of the
economy.
And it's not like we'd be
attracting just anybody to
these parks, either. We'd
be targeting hikers, bikers,
horse riders, Boy Scouts,
Girl Scouts and kayak-
ers-people who come here
specifically because of the
grizzly ruggedness of the
area. Furthermore, these are
clean people-as an Eagle
Scout, I remember spending
an hour scouring the camp-
site before we left, making
sure it was cleaner than
when we arrived.
Three years ago, Levy
County residents agreed to
pay a quarter-cent tax to
promote tourism. This is
only the first step in bring-
ing money to Levy County.
If the Tourism Develop-
ment Council can establish a
public relations and adver-
tising campaign targeted to
outdoor fans, Levy County's
economy will improve with
very little effort.
A strong tourism industry
would be like harvesting a
farm that never dies.

porter for the Levy County

Bomb threats are felonious offenses


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGINo EDITOR
Even before the terrorists' attacks on the United States in
2001, in Florida there have been strict repercussions on those
who threaten or use scare tactics-even if they prove false.
Those repercussions may come to fall on the person or
persons who called White Ford in Chiefland March 1 and told
them a bomb was in the building.
According to Police Chief Robert Douglas, the person
called the auto dealership and said, "Listen to me. I'm serious.
There's a bomb in the building."
Within minutes, law enforcement officials were on the
scene, the building evacuated and the county's bomb dog was
set loose.
"The dog did in 15 minutes what it would have taken us an
hour to do," Douglas said. The entire perimeter was searched
and nothing turned up.
Douglas said investigators are now tracking leads in the
case and are using phone records to trace where the call came
from.
The chief said the amount of time it takes to solve the case


will depend on just how many records will need to be traced
before they find the culprit.
"Anything is possible to track," the chief said, when asked
what kind of difficulty investigators may incur in their pursuit.
"Even Nextel customers can be traced-and those lines are
coded."
Copy-cat criminals should take note.
False reports of bombs and explosives are prohibited and
carry with them stiff penalties.

According to Florida Statute 790.164, false reports are
treated as second degree felonies and any punishment will
be adjudicated accordingly including the right to demand
restitution for all the costs and damages arising from the
criminal conduct.
The code also provides a $5,000 reward for the giving of
information to any law enforcement agency in the state with
information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person
violating the statute.
Anyone with information concerning the March 1 incident
should call Douglas at 493-6777.

land prices seemed cheap
to the new. They had few
regrets for these folks, too,
called it progress.
Now some of these people
want to keep new developers
out. They gather together
to holler and shout; after all,
they had their fill calling
their own projects progress --
new ones overkill, forgetting
they, too, were newcomers
though they were not the first
to use Mother Earth to sat-
isfy their needs, their hunger,
their thirst.
The history books of the

DNA is not magic


BY JOHNNY SMITH
SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL
Hello, everyone and
welcome to this
week's Sheriff's
Comer. I'd like to take this
time to complete the sub-
ject of DNA. Last week we
talked about how important
DNA evidence can be for
both proving guilt and inno-
cence. In fact DNA evidence
is evaluated all the time on
cases from the past when
DNA evaluation was not
conducted.
It is very important to
know where DNA evidence
can be found at a crime
scene. Actually this type of
evidence can be found virtu-
ally anywhere on a scene.
That is if the person with
the DNA had contact with
the location. This means
that cigarette butts, post-
age stamps, ski masks (area
around the mouth), hair in
hats etc. can be valuable
DNA evidence.
Next, in order to be sure
that DNA evidence is recov-
ered and that contamination
does not happen, almost
sterile conditions must be ad-


hered to. Once the evidence
is secured The
sample has to/
be reduced to
DNA for the t
comparison.
This is done
in a labora-
tory setting.
The results
come back to the investigat-
ing agency for application
to the case. That means that
if a positive identification
has been made between the
questioned sample, from the
piece of evidence with the
"known" sample from the
suspect, the suspect has been
linked to the scene and there-
fore may be arrested.
DNA is not magic. We
do have the technology to
utilize DNA in our investi-
gations when appropriate.
We feel this is good practice
especially when results come
back in ten's to hundreds of
million who can be excluded
very often leaving only the
suspect. It is a tool that we
understand and respect. Have
a good week. Take care.
Johnny Smith is the Levy
County Sheriff.

Racing season revs up in Bronson


History was made at Bron-
son Motor Speedway on Sat-
urday night as the inaugural
event for the ASA Late Mod-
el Series Southern Division
was held at the famous high
banks.
The only stop for the ASA
Late models in this region
gave the local fans an op-
portunity to see a promising
group of rising stars.
Drivers traveled from as
far away as Iowa, Pennsylva-
nia and Missouri to take part
in the show. It was a festive
event beginning with an au-
tograph session sponsored
by Gainesville Roofing as the
fans got a chance to get up
close and, personal with the
drivers on the track, including
Matt Martin, son of Nextel
Cup Legend Mark Martin.
After qualifying, 20 driv-
ers would take the green flag
in the Coors Light 100 lap
feature event. Joining in on
the action would be the wild
and crazy figure eight divi-
sion and the ultra competitive
Florida Mini Cup Challenge
Series.
In the main event, Lake
City's own Jay Middleton
would start from the top
spot after the inverted start.
Fast Qualifier, Ryan Carlson
would roll off from the fifth
position .
At the drop of the green
Middleton faced a challenge-
from surprisingly strong Mis-
souri competitor, Bo Miller.
They battled door to door for
several laps as the standing
room only crowd watched in


amazement. Middleton was
able to establish himself at
the top of the heap with Miller
and Carlson hot on his tail.
As the top three charged
away from the rest of the
field, a very talented group
of youngsters was trying to
settle the balance of the top
five. John Wes Townley,
David Pollen Jr. and Dalton
Zehr swapped positions the
entire event.
Fan favorite Matt Martin
suffered through a long night
after a brush with the wall
in the early laps. He battled
all night to the delight of the
Bronson fans and wound up
just outside the top 10.
Carlson was able to use
lapped traffic as an ace in the
hole to squeeze by Bo Miller.
In the final laps Carlson was
able to close in on the point
man Middleton, but would
come up short. Middleton
was dominant as he led wire
to wire to capture the victory
in the first ever ASALMS
Southern Division. It proved
to be a wonderful way to kick
off the 2006 racing season at
Bronson Motor Speedway.
The wild and crazy figure
eight division would live up
to its name as the cars charged
to the green flag, Bobby Towe
would lead the field and Rob-
bie Powell and Joey Catterali
had the balance of the top
three spots held down.
Local driver Ken Shef-
field raced at the front until
an untimely spin set back his
effort. In the end, Towe held
off a strong field to capture


his second straight win.
Always a crowd pleaser,
the Super Mini Cup Cars
raced both a junior and se-
nior division. In an eerie co-
incidence, Jr. Cup racer Seth
Greco drove his machine
that carried the same num-
ber and paint scheme as Jay
Middleton's to a wire to wire
victory.
The Senior division event
was marred by a scary crash
that sent driver Derek Morey
to the hospital for observa-
' tion. The 2005 points cham-
pion Rick Auriemma stole
the victory from early leaders
Rick Blair and Doug Smith.
The next special event on
the action packed schedule
will be world renowned Crash
A Rama! Saturday, March 18
when the wildest show on
wheels returns to Bronson
Motor Speedway.
The Billy Meyers Grand-
stands on the backstretch will
be open and additional food
vendors will be on hand.
The Crash A Rama is al-
ways a crowd pleaser and
will feature School Bus Fig-
ure Eight, Pro Figure Eight,
Boat Trailer Races, Two
Demo Derbies, Skid Car
Race, Block Race, Blindfold
Race, a Stunt Show, X Bikes,
Fireworks and much, much

Smoking cessation class successful


BY BEVERLY MCLEAN
CORRESPONDENT
Keeping New Year's reso-
lutions really does sometimes
happen.
In this particular case the
results are extraordinary.
Eleven of the 13 people who
convened Jan. 4 at the Levy
County Health Department to
declare their commitment to
quit smoking once and for all
have done it.
The two who did not quite
reach their goal are still bat-
tling and pressing toward
becoming completely smoke
free. So in a sense everyone
is successful.
Slond Celeste, the facilita-
tor of the Smoking Cessation
Clinic, is extremely pleased.
"I've never had such a good
turn out and such success.
These folks are serious."
On the evening of March
1, a ceremony was held in
honor of the graduates, not
only to celebrate but also to
reimburse them the $15they
originally paid for materials.
"If you quit, you get your
money back," explained
Slond. "And if you didn't,
you can -come to the next
clinic for no charge because
you already have your mate-
rials."
Nicotine patches, too, are
supplied free of charge. Most,
but not all, of the graduates
took advantage of this stop
smoking aid.
Pat of Chiefland was mo-
tivated to quit because of his
three boys who are 12, 10,
and 3 years old.
"I want to keep up with
them," he said. "What made
the difference this time is I
kept a positive attitude-that
it's a good thing to quit. I'd
tell myself, 'You're not smok-
ing and that's it! Grow up!'"'
While in the midst of
the stressful circumstance
of changing jobs, Pat went
cold turkey after 25 years of
smoking. "After being free
for three weeks, I didn't want
to go through that first week
again." His advice is don't
smoke the first one in the
morning and don't buy any.
Cindy of Chiefland was
motivated by her grandpar-

ous attitudes to reshap-

ents. "I wanted to get them
off my back! My grandpar-
ents are loving it now and
that makes me feel better."
Sacrifice of a lifestyle that
one has grown accustomed
to is among the most.difficult
components of quitting.
Bronson resident, Jackie,
enjoyed taking her breaks
and lunch with her friends at
work. But because they are
smokers, she decided to stay
at her desk during these times
and avoid temptation. She
really missed the company
of her friends, but finds now
that after eight weeks of ab-
stinence she can be with them
without wanting a cigarette.
"Unfortunately," she said,
"food tastes better. I've
gained six pounds."


The benefit of being in a
group setting was demon-
strated in response to Jackie's
statement.
"It's better to be heavy
than smoke."
"Smoking is the number
one preventable cause of
death."
"Exercise will take care of
that and has all kinds of other
benefits, too."
Indeed, all the participants
agreed that the group setting
was very helpful.
Jerry, also of Bronson, af-
firms, "The group helped me
a lot to succeed. I've tried
patches, rubber bands which
did nothing but put welts on
my wrists, a bunch of ways
over the years. But the com-
bination of the group and re-


ally wanting to quit got me
through this time. I go up-
stairs now and haven't col-
lapsed; I'm not winded at all
like I was."
The Smoking Cessation
Clinic consists of eight ses-
sions in a group setting in
which planning to quit and
stay quit is emphasized. Cir-
cumnstances that may cause
relapse are discussed and al-
ternatives to smoking are pre-
planned. The sessions also
include calming or relaxation
techniques, and information
on diet and exercise.
The next one will be of-
fered in April. The date and
location are to be announced.

CONCURRENT NOTICE
NOTICE TO PUBLIC OF NO
SIGNIFICANT EFFECT ON
THE ENVIRONMENT
AND NOTICE TO PUBLIC
FOR REMOVAL OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS

DATE: March 10, 2006

RECIPIENT: City of Williston
TELEPHONE NUMBER: (352)
528-3060

ADDRESS: 50 NW Main Street
Williston, Florida 32696

To all Interested Agencies,
Groups and Persons:

On or about, March 26, 2006 the
above named City of Williston
will request that the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs,
designated by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban De-
velopment, remove the environ-
mental conditions and release
Federal funds under Title 1 of
the Housing and Community
Development Act of 1974.

Service Area #1-City Wide Ser-
vice Area:

06 Parks and Play-
grounds-The City. has received
a Florida Recreational Develop-
ment Assistance Grant to de-
velop 4th Street Park. The park
is located across the street from
a nursing home. The park is be-
ing designed to serve all of the
City's citizens; however, special
consideration is being given to
the City's senior citizens in all
design of the park. The CDBG
funding will be used to construct
handicapped accessible walk-
ways and boardwalks in the
park. Additionally, a portion of
the CDBG funding will be used
into construct parking for the
park facility.

Service Area #2-Northeast
Quadrant Service Area:

The Northeast Quadrant of the
City is served by its own water
system. The hydraulic pressure
of the northeast quadrant wa-
ter system is different from the
hydraulic pressure for the water
system serving the rest of the
city, thus the two systems cannot
be interconnected during normal
operation. The Water well and
treatment plant facility currently
serving the northeast quadrant
of the city does not provide ad-
equate volume or pressure to
properly serve the customers
that utilize it. The activities pro-
posed in this service area are to
acquire a parcel of property on
which a new well and treatment
plant facility will be constructed.
Construct the new well and
treatment plant facility, as well
as, constructing a water trunk
line to carry the potable water
from the new well and treatment
plant facilities back to the exist-
ing distribution system. The ac-
tivities proposed in this service
area are as follows:

01 Acquisition-The acquisition of
a parcel of property on which the
new well and treatment fa-
cility will be constructed

04a Water Tank/Well/Treatment
Plant-The funds in this activ-
ity will be used to construct a
water well, treatment facility and
a trunk line to connect the new
water well and plant facility in
to ,the existing water distribution
system that serves the northeast
quadrant of the City.

Unmet Need:
Service Area #3-North Central
Quadrant Service Area:
04a Water tank/Well/Treat-
ment Plant-This activity will ex-
tend the water transmission line
from the new water plant and
treatment facility to the North
Central Quadrant Service Area.
The line would be connected to
the existing water distribution
system that serves the North
Central Quadrant of the City.

It has been determined that
such request for removal of en-
vironmental conditions will not
constitute an action significantly
affecting the quality of the hu-


man environment; accordingly,
the above-named recipient has
decided not to prepare an Envi-
ronmental Impact Statement un-
der the National Environmental


Policy Act of 1969 (PL 91-190).

The reasons for the decision not
to prepare such Statement are
as follows:
1. Project is not harmful to the
Environment.
2. Project calls for no involuntary
relocation.
3. Project calls for no forced ac-
quisition of land.
4. Project is not located in a flood
zone.

An Environmental Review Re-
cord respecting the above
project has been made by the
above-named recipient which
documents the environmental
review of the project and more
fully sets forth the reasons why
such Statement is not required.
The Environmental Review Re-
cord is on file at the City Hall and
is available for public examina-
tion and copying upon request
by calling (352) 528-3060, Mr.
James F. Coleman, City Man-
ager between the hours of 8:30
a.m. through 5:00 p.m. Monday
through Friday.

No further environmental review
of such project is proposed to be
conducted prior to the request
for removal of environmental
conditions.

All interested agencies, groups
and persons disagreeing with
the decision are invited to sub-
mit written comments for con-
sideration by the recipient to Mr.
James W. Cason, President,
City County, 50 North West Main
Street, Williston, Florida 32696.
Such written comments must be
received at the address specified
on or before March 26, 2006. All
such comments so received will
be considered and the recipient
will not request the removal of
environmental conditions or take
any administrative action on the
above named project until the
date specified in the preceding
sentence.

The recipient will undertake the
project described above with
Block Grant Funds from the U.S.
Department of Housing and the
Urban Development (HUD) un-
der Title 1 of the Housing and
Community Development Act of
1974 through the State of Flori-
da. The recipient is certifying to
DCA that its environmental cer-
tifying officer identified above, in
the official capacity as City Coun-
cil President consents to accept
the jurisdictional responsibilities
in relation to environmental re-
views, decisions making and'
action; and that these responsi-
bilities have been satisfied. The
legal effect of the certification
is that upon its approval the re-
cipient may use the Block Grant
funds and HUD will have satis-
fied its responsibilities under the
National Environmental Policy
Act of 1969. DCA will accept an
objection to its approval only if it
is one (1) of the following basis:
a) that the certification was not
in fact executed by the certifying
officer or other officer of appli-
cant approved by DCA; of b) that
applicant's environmental review
record for the project indicates
omission of a required decision
finding or step applicable to the
project in the environmental re-
view process. Objections must
be prepared and submitted in
accordance with the required
procedure (24 CFR part 58) and
may be addressed to Florida
Department of Community Af-
fairs, Bureau of Community As-
sistance, 2555 Shumard Oak
Boulevard, Tallahassee, Florida,
32399-2100.

Objections to the removal of en-
vironmental conditions on basis
other than stated above will not
be considered by DCA. No objec-
tion received afterApril 18, 2006,
will be considered by DCA.

It was a fun day on the farm

Chiefland FFA has cookout and more


The members from the
Chiefland FFA had a cookout
for its members, as well as the
staff at the Chiefland Middle
School and the Chiefland
Alumni donated their time to
cook for the guests. The FFA
chapters fed approximately
160 people.
The 3rd annual Fun Day on
the Farm was a big success
for the Chiefland Middle FFA
Chapter. The FFA Chapter
invited the kindergarten
classes from Chiefland
Elementary School to visit
the animals at the land lab and
learn about different areas in
agriculture.
On this field trip, the
kindergarteners walked


from the elementary school
through the cattle fields to the
land lab.
The middle school students,
along with members of the
FFA Chapter, researched and
prepared a presentation to
the teach the kindergarteners
students about each station.
There were seven stations,
which included beef, animals
such as chickens, a hog,
goats, watermelon, peanuts
strawberries and dairy. The
FFA members showed the
steers, heifers and hogs that
the students were taught about
the Suwannee River Fair.
The students were able
to feed hay to the goats and
learn how to care for them.


VOLUNTEER COOKS were, from left, Murray Tillis,
R.D. Skelton, Dee Dee Carver, Michelle Ecker and
Ada Watkins.


Taste testing was a big
hit at the food stations.,
After washing their hands,
the students learned how
strawberries, watermelons
and peanuts grow, the
harvesting method and lastly,
eating fresh strawberries and
peanut butter on crackers.

The dairy industry is a
very important part of the
children's lives. They learned
about dairy cows, as well as
the products that come from
the dairy industry.
At the end of the field trip,
the students had their pictures
taken and were given bags
filled with goodies. People
from many industries donated


coloring books, pencils,
stickers and other items to go
ingthe bags.
Heather Rucker, the
Middle School Agricultural
teacher and FFA Advisor,
said, "This was the best one
that we have hosted yet."

There were seven
teachers and approximately
140 kindergarteners that
participated in this fun-filled
day. All of these activities
could not have been a success
without help.
Special thanks go to Dee
Dee Carver, Michelle Ecker,
Carolyn Hart, R.D. Skelton,
Murray Tillis and Ada
Watkins for all of their help!


TY HIERS TOLD the kindergarteners about pea-
nuts as he passed out peanut butter and crack-
ers.

Chapter, provided

Tourism will be Levy's biggest industry


BY JEFF SIRMONS
STAFF WRITER
Where many see large
expanses of trees and
uninhabited land, Carol
McQueen sees an opportunity
for industry.
Instead of seeing miles
of sawgrass palms and pine
trees, she sees miles of
untapped revenue.
To get this revenue, she's
going to preserve this land.
McQueen, who in
January was appointed
tourist development council
president, is trying to attract
outdoor fans from across the
country to Levy County's
untamed landscape.
"We have a wonderful
inventory of nature,"
McQueen said. "We're
going to bring tourists to
our springs, the Gulf, trails,
wildlife refuge and our state
forests-and we won't hurt
the environment."
McQueen is following


a plan she helped develop
that uses the quarter-cent
tourism tax passed in 2003.
She said every objective is on
schedule.
"We've just been busy,"
McQueen said of the tourism
council. "We're always trying
to think up ways to attract
overnight tourists so they buy
our gas and stay at our motels
and eat at our restaurants
and enjoy our beautiful
outdoors."
Lannie Cardona vacationed
in Cedar Key in 1985 and fell
in love with the small-town
charm of the coastal city. He
moved there in 1998.
"Coming up from Tampa,
we drove about 24 miles
through nothing but woods,"
Cardona said. "At one point,
we turned around fearing we
were lost. When we finally
found Cedar Key, we knew
we had found real Florida."
Cardona, who is a former
president' of Levy County's


Tourism Development
Council, said outdoorsmen
are the perfect tourists for the
area.
"People who want to go to
Disney World won't be found
here," Cardona said. "Here,
you'll sweat, get eaten alive
by 'noseeums,' and see every
star God intended you to see
in the sky."
Karen White, who is a
sixth generation Levy County
resident, said improving the
tourism industry was a. good
idea as long as the county
preserved its rural charm.
"I'm sure tourism is good
for Levy County but honestly,
in my heart, I'd like it never
to grow," she said.
White, who plans on
kayaking in the county in
April, has enjoyed the natural
beauty ever since she was a
child.
"What people call
'ecotourism' is what natives
have been doing for fun all

.Congress to fund CDBG be-
yond the 2006 budget year.
In other business, some
personality issues between
Town Clerk Donna Conquest
and Councilwoman Melody
LaFlam took centerstage for
more than an hour Monday
night.
In a Feb. 16 special meet-
ing that was called.to discuss
personnel policies, LaFlam
presented a five-page letter
that included three pages of
concerns about Conquest.
The clerk took Monday
night to respond to some of
those concerns.
At first the mayor asked
if the two women couldn't
work it out between them, but
Conquest believed because
the concerns were discussed
in an open meeting, her re-
buttals should take place in a
public meeting.
For more than an hour,
it was a roundrobin dicus-
sion with Conquest answer-
ing each accusation that had
been leveled against her by
LaFlam.
Conquest defended herself
by telling council that she
was in a precarious situation.
There has been no audit of
the town's records in several
years; there is no paperwork
to support actions; and she
has been trying to organize
and recreate that which has
disappeared or never existed.


Continued from front


CONQUHEST LAFLAM


She told council that much
of the disagreement came
when she wrote the Levy
County Sheriff a letter after
the third water meter at the
jail was discovered.
She said she informed him
of the meter and that the jail
had not been charged for the
water.
Conquest said she believed
everyone should be treated
equally--even the jail.
As Conquest identified all
the city needs including an
audit, the mayor shook her
head.
"The town is falling apart,"
Mongo said.
The mayor urged the two
women to hash out the prob-
lems and communicate bet-
ter.
Also, Mickey Beauchamp,
the town's public works di-


rector, said someone was
coming to fix the water tower
that has a hole in it.
Also the Rural Water Asso-
cation has been contacted to
see if it can assist the town in
finding where all its water is
going.
The town pumps almost
5.7 million gallons of water
each month but only bills for
a little over 3.2 million gal-
lons.
Conquest said when a town
loses 10 percent it is consid-
ered a lot and Bronson is los-
ing 56 percent.
Losing $5,000 to $10,000
each month is money down
the drain and this is one town
that can't afford to lose a
nickel.
"We need every penny we
can get," Schuler said.


along around here," White
said.
The tourism development
plan was modeled after
Citrus County's tourism
development plan, which
attracted 20 percent more
overnight tourists in 2005
than in 2004. Citrus County
has five times the population
of Levy County.
McQueen plans
on revamping Levy


County's Website, http://
visitnaturecoast.com, creating
higher quality brochures
and providing incentives to
nonprofit ecological tourism
groups.
She hopes the improved
tourism industry will also
attract new businesses and
create jobs.
"If we advertise to outdoor
people, businesses revolving
around those outdoor people


might come here," she said.
Cardona said the increased
tourism would change Levy
County by improving its
economy.
"Some people moan that
this Levy County is nothing
like the Levy County in
the 1950s," Cardona said.
"They're right-time has
changed the county. Time has
changed the United States.
But this county still represents
real Florida."
