50 cents per copy


Bronson raises trash fees 14 percent


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Increases in fuel costs,
insurance costs and even the
higher price of steel, and
therefore dumpsters, forced
Fred Wood of Waste Pro to
seek an uppage in garbage
rates.
On a motion by Bronson


City Councilwoman Melody
LeFlam and seconded by City
Councilwoman Edith Brown,
the council approved by a 5-
0 vote the motion to advertise
the city's intent to impose the
new fees. The May 1 vote will
lead to new prices effective
on June 1.
This is an across-the-board


Airport takes off;

heads in right direction

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
In the past five years, Williston Municipal Airport has
grown from selling about $2,000 worth of fuel monthly to
selling $39,000 in fuel last month, according to Assistant
Airport Supervisor Dave Bibby.
Certainly some of that increase is from costs, but from
actual gallons of fuel the leap has gone from approximately
2,500 gallons a month to about 10,000 to 12.000 gallons per
month, Bibby said.
The airport is busy, too, even though there is no tower.
Pilots.confer with people in the office. There are an average of
between 1,500 and 2.000 operations monthly. One take-off is
equal to an operation and one landing is an operation. A pilot
gaining information as he flies over the field would count as
an operation.
Newly resurfaced with concrete rather than asphalt. Runway
05/23 is 6,670 feet long and 100-feet n ide. Combined %with
lights and other improvements, the Williston N Municipal Airport
just saw $3 million in improvements, Airport Supervisor Joe
Ball said. Thatmoney came entirely from the Federal Aviation
Administration and the state of Florida.
This is the same runway that came into being for B-52s in
IWl from 1942 to 1947, when the U.S. Army Air Corps
used the airport.
The secondary airport entrance and exit is Runway 14/32.
It is 5,000 feet long and 100 feet wide. It is still asphalt.
The new runway, Ball said, could accommodate a 747 in
a pinch. One of the biggest lanes that recently landed on it
-was a DG-6. This huge four-prdp airplane has a flight crew
of three or four. Passenger accommodations are typically for
between 48 to 56 people. It landed on Sept. 20, 2005, and

increase for all residential and
commercial customers.
A customer who normally
pays $8.10 a month will see
the increase go to $9.23. A
family that pays $11.25 for
twice weekly garbage pickups
will see its monthly cost go up
to $12.83. Government clients
that pay $22.50 a month will


pay $25.65 monthly. On the
high end of a lengthy set of
fees, the 8-yard Dumpster
that is picked up three times
weekly currently costs $231 a
month. That cost will go up to
$263.34.
After one resident
mentioned there are people
who will be affected by 'the


increase to $12.83, he asked
if some people could have
one pickup per week. Wood
explained that the cost of
separating clients on a house-
by-house basis would add too
much. Besides, Wood added,
the contract with the city' is

BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
In most situations if you
don't support an idea, you are'
most likely to be in favor of
it.
Not so, when it comes to
the Levy County Planning
Commission.
At Monday night's meet-
ing, almost 45 minutes was
spent trying to get .a com-
mission member--any com-
mission member--to make a
motion or trying to figure out
what each vote signified.
The dilemma among com-
mission members came when
a request for a special excep-
tion for an. RV park at Cy-
press Station was brought to
the floor by Walton McJor-
dan, the applicant.
McJordan asked the com-
mission to allow the park to
be located on 18.42 acres
on property that is currently
zoned forestry/rural residen-
tial.
The applicant asked to do
the RV park, known as Na-
ture Coast Resort RV Park, in.
two phases, the first with 33
lots. The site will also include
a bathhouse, a dump station
and an area designated for
recreation.
McJordan said he had run


campgrounds over the years
and had been successful in
places that included New Or-
leans.
With mobile home and RV
parks being bought for better
uses, McJordan said they are
losing space.
"The supply is dwindling
while the demand is increas-
ing," he said.
Concerns from the plan-
ning commission included
the property is in an area cat-
egorized as "high fire poten-
tial", parking, potential traf-
fic problems on both Shiloh
Road and US 24 and water.
Rob Corbett from the Plan-
ning and Zoning Department
recommended the commis-
sion approve the application.
However the owners of
Rainbow Park, near the pro-
posed RV park, told the com-
mission they were 30 percent
to capacity year round and
only 25 percent during the
winter as they questioned the
necessity of another RV park
in the area.
"To say we don't need an-
other campground is like say-
ing we don't need a service
station around the corer,"
McJordan said, "or you can't

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The Better Business Bureau
of Central Florida protects
businesses and consumers,
said Judy Pepper, president of
the BBB office which serves
Levy and 10 other counties.
The BBB received 17,000
complaints last year in the
Central Florida region. The
non-profit group reviews
complaints against member
businesses and non-member
businesses and requires
memberbusinesses to respond
to written complaints.
Last year, 15 BBB
memberships were
terminated, Pepper said,
because those businesses
failed to resolve issues with
customers as they should
have resolved them, and
they performed practices
that are not acceptable to the
organization.
The, BBB representative
was speaking to the Greater
Chiefland Area Chamber of
Commerce on April 28 during
its monthly lunch meeting
at Bell's Restaurant where
Pepper distributed copies of
a pamphlet titled "Schemes
Against Business."
It tells about thieves who
use tricks to have businesses
order office supplies. When
the owner objects to the scam
artists, the thieves use various
methods to bully or negotiate
until they still profit from
their rip-off.
The pamphlet notes that
if supplies are not ordered,
don't pay for them. Assign
designated buyers in the
company to avoid confusion
about who can order supplies,


Check invoices carefully
before paying. Train staff
on proper responses to
unsolicited phone, fax or
email offers for supplies or
services.
She told about trickery
against consumers and
workers, too.
In one scam, people are
invited to be a model and
make money. To earn this
money, however, the victims
pay for photos and the like.
Another, method .used to
fleece people, Pepper said, is
to advertise "work at home"
plans.
People have lost money
by paying money to work
on a cruise ship, where they
will supposedly earn more.
Only that job never reaches
fruition.
A relatively new and
popular scam lets people
know they are eligible for a
$12,000 scholarship. In the
scholarship rip-off, the victim
releases his bank account
information to the con artist,
who takes advantage of that
information.
. The BBB investigates
some cases and gives law
enforcement agencies
information to help prosecute
thieves, Pepper said.
The BBB also looks at
charitable organizations via
its Wise, Giving Program.
Anyone can contact the BBB
to learn if a group is actually
a charitable group.
All of the BBB services are
free to consumers and people
may call about any business.
If there are-complaints, the
BBB will report the number
and type of complaints


against the company, she said
and will also tell the caller if
and how the complaint was
resolved.
To get help from the BBB,
Pepper recommends trying
the website first. That address
is http://bbb.org. There is
no "www" required for the
address. The phone number
is 407-621-3300 or 1-800-
275-6614.
The next meeting of the
Greater Chiefland Area


Chamber of Commerce is set
for noon in Bell's Restaurant
on May 26.
In other chamber news:
Frank Schupp asked
people to write letters to:
Alan Levine, Secretary of
Health, c/o Frank Schupp,
193 Ventana Blvd., Santa
Rosa Beach, FL, 32459, to
show they support a hospital
to be built in Chiefland.
It was noted that Kacey
Hamburger received a $500
scholarship from the chamber
so she could go to school in
Pennsylvania to further her
mastery of taxidermy.
A median beautification
study is underway and the
organization's leaders will
make recommendations to
members at some point in the
future.
Bob Wineberg of Haven
Hospice said the facility is
at capacity and noted his
thanks to the chamber for its
support.
Chamber members were
reminded there is a weekly
meeting of the Lions Club of
Chiefland each Wednesday at
noon at Bell's Restaurant.

Relay raises $59,500
To the editor:
I'm writing to thank the community of Williston for the
tremendous support of the 5th Annual American Cancer
Society's Relay For Life, held in Williston on April 21 and
22 at Williston Elementary School. Despite extreme weather
conditions of blinding rain and lightning, we persevered
and raised a gross total of over $59,500 for the fight against
cancer!
The all-volunteer Event Committee was chaired by Mr.
Brad Shultz and Mrs. Nan Mack. Brad and Nan's leader-
ship were responsible for the success of this event. They
assembled an amazing committee of volunteers to handle
every aspect of the event. Key members of the committee
included: Cookie King, Jane Sapp, Gary Mack, Deborah
Jones, Barbara Mauldin, Debby Epperson, Tracie Osteen,
Missy Seay, Laura Hunt, Jeremy Clements, Juana Rae But-
ler, Cathy McCoy, Alberta Lippmann, Adelia Vachon. If it
were not for their selfless dedication of time and passion for
this event, this event would not have been so successful.
I would also like to recognize our corporate sponsors: Per-
kins Financial Group, who was graciously a Silver Sponsor
of the Relay For Life Event and to Seminole Feeds, Food
Ranch Supermarkets, Smith and Lancaster, Kindergarten
Farms, Stonehedge Farms, Progress Energy, Sparr Build-
ing Supply and McDonald's ofWilliston, for their financial
support.
The American Cancer Society extends many thanks to
Williston Elementary School Site/Facility Sponsor, Gary
and Nan Mack Sound System Sponsor, city of Williston
- Meeting Room Sponsor and light sponsor, Pride Enterpris-
es Banner/Sign Sponsor, and WCJB Channel 20 and the
Williston Pioneer Sun News Primary Media Sponsors. All
of the underwriting sponsors and additional in-kind sponsors
should be congratulated, as they ensured the success of the
Relay For Life event held in Williston.
Eleven teams participated from around the Williston area
and represented a wide variety of local businesses, schools
and organizations. Perkins State Bank, with team captain
Jason Langworthy, was the top fund-raising team. Other
recognized teams included: 2nd place fund-raising team and
Best Onsite Fund-raiser James', Cindy's and Mary-Kate's
Angels (Levy Insurance Agency) led by Karlton Norton, Top
School Fund-raising Team Williston Elementary led by
Mellissa Lewis; Best Campsite Whitehurst Family led by
Billie-Jo Whitehurst; Top Fund-raising New Team- Curves,
led by Laura Hunt; Best Entertainment Hour-- New Hope
Baptist led by Jackie Appling; Best New Team-- New Abun-
dant Life, Team Captain Veri Lee; Best New Fund-raising
Idea and Top Fund-raising Team First United Methodist
Church, which was led by Justin Landon; Perseverance and
"AllFNighitClubW''Awardal Willis'oiriMiddld Jr. Beta GCluib! ji
led by Carmen Ward and Morgan Bennet;Most-Spirited-> .
Team city of Williston led by Juana Rae Butler and Tracie
Osteen, and the Best Baton Kid's and Co. led by Amy
Langworthy.
If the teams are the heart of relay, the cancer survivors
are the soul. Some 28 survivors from the community were
honored and awarded survivor t-shirts, enjoyed a lovely
reception with complimentary gifts and walked the first lap
(Survivor's Victory Lap). Later in the evening, there were
more than 300 luminaries purchased and lit in honor or
memory of cancer victims.
The funds raised will support American Cancer Society
Programs and Services; along with Research and Advocacy
Initiatives. The American Cancer Society is the nationwide
community based, voluntary health organization dedicated to
eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing
cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer
through research, education, advocacy and service. For
more information about the American Cancer Society or to
get involved in the 2007 Williston Relay For Life, please
call your local office at 352-376-6866, ext. 119. Additional
information may be gathered by calling 1-800-ACS-2345 or

Relay walkers do it for all of us


T his is not my story
to tell.
But I continue to
tell it anyway.
It is the story of a brave
boy who was enjoying sum-
mer camp and Little League
and how in the autumn of his
11th year he found out that
he had not one, but two life
threatening illnesses.
It is the tale of agonizing
testing, torturous medical
procedures and a long road
to recovery.
No, it is not my story to
tell. It is his. But I will tell it
anyway.
I am his mother.
THE BEGINNING
Have often thought of
writing a book to tell Nick's
story. It is too long, too com-
plex, too unbelievable to not
share with others. And I feel
I mtist:" n *` *' .
But to sum it up in 1,200
words is no easy task and yet
I must try. This is the Read-
ers' Digest version.
Nick was a bright, happy,
athletic boy who was always
on the slender side. The sum-
mer of third grade he gained
a tremendous amount of
weight which the family doc-
tor chalked up to a growth
spurt. He said Nick's height
would soon catch up with his
weight. It didn't. Not even
two years later.
Another medical emergen-
cy sent us to the ER where
the doctor on call treated the
immediate problem and said
Nick looked Cushingoid. I'd
never heard of it but over the
next four months I learned
all about the disease where
the adrenal glands produce
too many steroids giving the
patient a husky, beefed up
appearance.
A pediatric endocrinolo-
gist in Spartanburg, S.C.
came out of retirement
(another mystical part of the
tale) to evaluate Nick's con-
dition. When he couldn't find
the source of the Cushing's
Syndrome, he tried to get
Nick into a protocol at Duke


THINKING OUT
LOUD


University but it was full.
The National Institutes
of Health in Bethesda, Md.
accepted him and on a crisp
September day he and I
drove there so he could be
pricked, prodded and turned
every which way but loose.
After every known MRI,
CT scan, blood test and body
scan, the experts at NIH
could not find the source of
his Cushing's, which is usu-
ally brought on by a tumor
either around the heart, .
adrenals or pituitary. ', '
Nothing showed.
Finally after six weeks
at NIH, they asked permis-
sion to biopsy Nick's lymph
nodes to see if there was
some sort of anomaly there.
An Asian doctor, who was
a Christian, prayed with us
before the biopsy and even
intervened when 10 other
, doctors wanted a slice of my'
son's body.
"No," he said. "The child
has been through enough."
NIH allowed Nick to leave
the hospital and return to
Georgia while tests were
done on the node. It was his
first time home in six weeks.
THE CALL
It was a crisp, October
Wednesday when NIH's Dr.
Zsolt Orban called.
I was home alone and
Nick and his dad were play-
ing golf.
"Mrs. Risner," he said,
"we have Nicholas' test
results. We still don't know
what's causing the Cush-
ing's, but I am sorry to say
that Nicholas has Hodgkin's
Disease."
I immediately sat down as
if someone had punched me

in the gut.
On the
telephone
pad I
wrote,
Cancer.
Death.
Nick.
Telling


my 11-
year-old
son he had cancer was one
of the most difficult things I
have ever had to do.
First I told his father and
then I told Nick--alone. I was
blunt, but gentle.
Nick didn't miss a beat.
"Am I going to die?" He
asked.
"I don't know," I answered
honestly, though it broke my
heart to not be able to say,
"Of course not."
Nick looked at me and
said, with thliwsdbfiuonly_=
a child can have, "Well, take ,
me back to NIH because if I
do, maybe they can study me
so some other kid won't have
to go through this."
I have never been more
proud of him in my life.
In November we returned
to NIH where doctors said
we needed to get the Cush-
ing's under control before
treating the Hodgkin's.
On Nov. 18, 1996 a skilled
team ofneurosurgeons did
exploratory surgery on
Nick's pituitary by going
into his brain through the
roof of his mouth.
In a few hours, they found
us with our pastor who had
driven the 12 hours to be
with us.
They had found a BB
sized tumor on the pea-sized
pituitary and removed it.
It had not shown in scans
and MRIs because it was
enveloped in a caul, or thick
casing of membranes.
He was going to be fine.
Or so we thought.
THANKSGIVING

with our other children, the

Sandy roads,

speed and

T his is my third
column for the Levy
Journal.
One of my first
misadventures in Levy
County occurred when I
drove
down a
sandy
road. It
was sugar
sand.
I tried
to find my
friend's
camp in
the Cedar JEFF M.
Key area. HARDISON
My wife Columnist
Sharon was
with me as
we left the hard-packed shell
road that is maintained by
the county, and we went onto
this long, rutted sandy path
toward my buddy's place.
Raising her voice to
a decibel level so that I
understood the intensity of
her feeling about the matter,
my lovely and talented wife
told me in no uncertain terms
that we must back out of the
dirt trail. Sand was scraping
on the bottom of our Malibu.
Later in my travels
through the county, the
little red engine light came
on. I thought it meant the
oil was low. I checked. It
wasn't. In case this newv-
fangled machine had some
different way to read a
dipstick, I idled into the lube
service area of Wal-Mart.
A lady there confirmed my
suspicion. The oil was fine.
I had to take my car to a
shop, because rhidles todS3'@
require computerhook-upsr -
to determine what ails them.
The people there fixed the
car. My theory is that driving
on the sandy path-caused the
problem. With my extended
warranty that has a $100
deductible, it cost $107 (tax
included).
SSpeaking of money and
cars, the cost'of gasoline
made me do some pondering
and recording.
There is a 12-mile
stretch of U.S. 27 between
Chiefland and Bronson that
is free from traffic lights.
I wanted to test my theory
on speed being a result of
combining time and distance,
and that over this section
of road a 10 mph variance
would not make a big
difference in time of arrival.
Rather than breaking the
speed limit, which is 65, to
prove my theory by going 75
mph, I drove the route once
at 65 and once at 55 mph.
One trip took me 12
minutes and the other trip
took me 13 minutes. So, I
save one minute by going
65 rather than 55 along a

Reports from Williston
Police Department
In the reports from Willis-

week, the following arrests
were listed:
A juvenile male was
charged April 28 with lewd
and lascivious molestation,
battery, false imprisonment
and criminal mischief. He
was taken to the juvenile as-
sessment center in Gaines-


quickly

and booked for DUI.
James Saxon Gillman,
57, of Williston was arrested
on a warrant from Pinellas
County.
Glendell Demetrius'
Thompson, 30, of Williston
was arrested on two warrants
from Levy County, according
to records.
Darwin Antonio Days, 30,
of Williston was arrested for
DWLSR on a warrant from
Marion County. No bond.
Juvenile of Williston re-
portedly struck a man with a
hammer on April 28. The boy
was charged with aggravated
assault.


Be warned of scam
The Williston Police Department is warning people of a
check scam that has hit this area.
The victim receives a cashier's check with an instructional
letter, which states that the winner can claim his or her prize.
The victim takes the check to a bank and deposits it, per the
instructions.
Then the victim sends a portion of the check back to a
processing center from his or her account. This is when the
scammers discover the victim's bank account number, and
they clean it out.
The WPD has taken a number of complaints recently
regarding this method of theft. Hence, it is sending this
warning to readers.

(yes, soaps). I'm hooked on
these.
I still miss my friend
Fran who had the thrift
store (she went to live with
Jesus)! Then Ann was at
the thrift store, but now the
store is gone and the new

restaurant, Boondocks, is
in the restaurant and thrift
shop building, which used
to be a bar when Rosa and
Al Blair were there, and yes,
I worked for them-those
were the days!
So until next week I'll say
take care, God bless and stay
sweet.

So says,

CMS FCAT


writing


scores up 10 percent


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Chiefland Middle School
showed a 10 percent increase
in' the combined score for
eighth grade
writing of
expository
and persuasive
essays in
the Florida
Comprehensive N
Assessment BENGE
Test this year in
.comparison with last year,
according to records.
This year, 82 percent of the
143 eighth graders at CMS
were in the 3.5 scoring range
or higher. The highest score
on these tests is a 6.
Last year, 72 percent of the
CMS eighth graders were in
the 3.5 range or higher. The
year before that, there were
78 percent in that range.
Williston Middle School
had 77 percent of its 127
eighth grade students score in
the 3.5 range or higher on the
combined FCAT Writing this
year, according to records.
From the eighth grade
population of 82 students at
Bronson High School, there
were 75 percent who scored
in the 3.5 range or higher on
the combined FCAT Writing
this year.
Eighty-three percent of the
25 eighth grades students at
Yankeetown School, which is
a kindergarten through eighth
grade school, ranked in the
3.5 percent range or higher on
the combined FCAT Writing
this year.
From the 17 students in
the eighth grade at Hilltop
Alternative who took the test,
there was a 61 percent ranking
in the 3.5 percent range or
higher on the combined
FCAT Writing this year.
In the same FCAT category
this year, 100 percent -- or
every one of the 16 eighth
grade students at Cedar
Key School were in the 3.5
range or higher, according to
records.
"We're very proud of our
kids," Cedar Key School
middle school language arts
teacher Jessie Adams said.
"I'm excited for them."
She credits the improved
scores, because two students
did not score as well in the
eighth grade test last year,
to focusing on writing this
year. There were 21 CKS
eighth graders last year. This


is Adams' first year as the
middle school language arts
teacher in Cedar Key.
"I think .it is important to
note that these are different
groups of students, and we
all know that every child is
different," Adams said.
CKS is a pre-K through 12th
grade school. Adams noted
that students performed well
in the fourth grade writing
tests and the high school
writing tests at CKS as well.
With only 16 students,
there is a bit of a difference
than for a class of 143.
Chiefland Middle School
Assistant Principal Carol
Benge is equally proud of the
improvement by that eighth
grade class.
"These writing scores
reflect the cumulative work
of many teachers over all of
the years for our students,"
Benge said.
The administrator indicated
that the two types of eighth
grade FCAT writing tests
do not occur in a vacuum --
without the influence of all of
the previous years of learning.
There was some concentrated
effort this year, nonetheless.
"There is a critical time for
these tests when we focus on
them, where the emphasis
is to encourage our students
right up to the test," Benge
said. "This is when we take
the foundation that we have
built by teaching, we take that
instrument we have created,
and we hone it, we sharpen
it."
The CMS students are
sharp.
"We've got a really good
school," Benge said. "This
is an amazing school. We've
got good kids. We've got
dedicated, teacherss andi
support staff."

youngest who would be
turning six on Nov. 22. Nick
would come home in 10-14
days.
But on the Sunday before
Thanksgiving, his father
called and said that the
steroids made because of the
Cushing's had suppressed
the cancer.
Now that the adrenals
were functioning prop-
erly and there was no mass
steroid production, the
Hodgkin's was out of control
and Nick was in serious
condition.
They air flighted him
that morning to Scottish
Rite Children's Hospital in
Atlanta. I met him there and
they began his first round of
chemotherapy.
The next three days were
touch and go. He was cold. I
climbed into bed with him to
offer body heat. He was nau-
seous. I cleaned up vomit.
He was sweaty. I wiped his
brow.
And through it all, he kept
saying he had to be home for
Thanksgiving.
The Wednesday before,
the doctors said no, but Nick
was adamant. He had to be
home.
They relented after nine
that night. That year as our
family, extended family
and friends gathered, we all
knew we had much to be
thankful for.
THE ROAD AHEAD
Over the next six months,
every two weeks was a drive
to Atlanta for the chemo.
On the off-weeks we drove
to Anderson, S.C. for blood
tests. In between we tried to'
lead as normal a life as pos-
sible.
Nick lost weight but not
his hair and through the hor-
rific half-year, the American
Cancer Society was there,
supporting us, loving us and
providing the research that
led to Nick's treatment.
We were reimbursed mile-
age for treatments, given
supplemental funds to offset
certain drugs not covered
by insurance and supplied
with the latest information


Continued from page 4


on Hodgkin's treatment.
; The ACS'played'a-Vital rdle '
in Nick's treatment and we
became believers.
Today Nick is 21 years
old. A year from now, I pray
that I will be able to write a
column that declares he is,
once and for all, cancer free
(if Hodgkin's recurs--and it
does--it happens within the
first 10 years).
Of all the charities out
there, the ACS is the one
I endow most. Its efforts,
through research, saved my
son's life. I can never give
enough to offset that value.
This weekend, Chiefland
will host its annual Relay
for Life, a fund-raiser for the
ACS.
When those teams take to
the track, I will be but one of
the people on the sidelines
cheering them on, saying a
prayer of thanksgiving and
not only believing in the
power of what teamwork can
do, but knowing it.
Won't.you join me?
Carolyn Risner is man-
aging editor of the Levy
County Journal.


MISSAYERS, MR. MIZELL

65 rather than 55 along a
12-mile stretch. I lost that
minute, however, when I hit
-the first red light.
Being without my wife for
these first two weeks here,
and I did return to Pinellas
County for a long weekend, I
have been thinking. I think a
lot anyway.
I went to the gas pumps
and for 201 miles of driving,
I put in 8.25 gallons of gas at
$3 per gallon. That showed
my Malibu has averaged
24.36 miles per gallon in my
most recent driving.
If my car engine runs at
1,500 revolutions per minute
at the speed of 55 and it
runs at 2,000 RPMs at the
speed of 65, I spend $1.50
in gas going to Bronson
from Chiefland if I am going
65 mph. I gain one minute
in time. I figure I spend
about $1.47 in gas going to
Bronson from Chiefland if I
am going 55 mph. I lose one
minute in time.
This one minute of lost
time is giving me another
3 cents towards gasoline!
That's 6 cents roundtrip for
two minutes, if I go 10 mph


below the limit. All of these
are approximations and
some of my gas-speed-time
math may be convoluted and
incorrect.
I am thankful that Robin
Heath keeps my mileage
report correct for the
publishing company.
In any event, there are a
couple of points here. First,
if you see ruts deeper than
your car can clear, do not
drive down that road even
if it is soft sand.
Second, although 75
mph seems like you are
going much, much faster
than the 65 mph limit along
that stretch, I recommend
against doing that. The one
minute can prove to be.very
expensive in traffic ticket
costs, increased insurance
rates, and the risk for injury
or worse does increase with
speed.
Besides, you lose that one
minute at the first red light.

Be a prepared motorist


Hello, everyone and
welcome to this
week's Sheriff's
Comer. Summer vacation
time is drawing
near. Our chil-
dren will be out
of school and
plans for the
summer are be-
ing made. In the
world of crime JOHNNY
prevention, safe- SMITH
ty and security,
this is a time when careless-
ness needs to be avoided.
For those of you staying
home this summer, remem-
ber that there is a lot to do
here in Levy County. Please
be careful in traveling to and
from your destination. This
includes using seat belts for
everyone. Drivers remember
to not look into the back seat
area when you are driving. If
the kids are fussing or being
loud speak to them or pull
off the road for discipline.
Also if you use a parking lot,
try to get a place where you
can pull straight out instead
of backing out. Most parking
lot accidents involve backing
out.
Please refrain from using
your cell phone as much as
possible while driving. An
ever increasing number of ac-
cidents are being attributed to
cell phone usage while driv-
ing.


Recently, I was on a major .
freeway and I constantly came
in contact with slow traffic
in the left lane or fast lane.
Some of the drivers.seemed .
oblivious to what was go-
ing on. Several attempted to .
change lanes and almost were
involved in a major accident
when they did the maneuver.
It is very dangerous and rude
to drive slowly in the left lane,
impeding traffic on these fast
major roads. Speed limits are
higher and there are all types
of vehicles to contend with.
Some of you will be trav-
eling. to destinations for va-
cations. And, some of these
trips will be long and tiring.
Before starting, check your
tires, oil, air conditioner and
general condition of your car.
It can be very dangerous to
break down far from home.
So make sure your vehicle is
in good shape. Never carry
large amounts of cash, use
traveler's checks and don't
display what you do carry.
Always be aware of your
surroundings and never ad-
vertise your plans. Now this
seems harsh, but don't stop
to offer help to broken down
or stranded motorists. Go to
the nearest phone or use your
cell phone to call help to the
people. More next week.
Take care.
Johnny Smith is sheriff of
Levy County.

New bus plan in works for Williston students


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Separating the bus riding
elementary school children
from middle and high school
students in Williston is the
key to a proposed pilot proj-
ect.
This two-tier school bus
plan calls for changing the
starting and ending times at
some schools in Williston,
but the probable reduction
in issues caused by having
children of all age ranges on
buses is believed to be worth
it. This plan put elementary
aged students on some buses
and it places the older stu-
dents on buses that run at dif-
ferent times.
Levy County Superinten-
dent of Schools Clifton V.
Norris said he thinks this is
a very worthwhile pilot proj-
ect. It is possible to do this in
Chiefland later, he said. The
two-tier bus service will be a
bigger challenge in Bronson
due to student population.
The plan cannot be applied
for the Cedar Key School.
The superintendent and
staff presented the proposal
at the May 2 school board
meeting and Williston is first
on the list because it has the
highest number of students in
the district.
The public is invited to
a school board workshop,


where no action will be taken
but people will be allowed to
ask questions and give input.
That workshop is set to be
in the Williston Elementary
School Cafetorium on May
23 at 6:30 p.m.
If adopted as proposed,
the plan means Williston El-
ementary School will start at
8 a.m. and end at 2:17 p.m.,
that is a one-minute exten-
sion of the school day. Joyce
Bullock Elementary School
will start at 8:10 a.m. rather
than 8:20 a.m., and JBES will
end at 2:10 p.m. instead of
2:20 p.m.
The biggest changes in
time will be for the middle
and high schools in Willis-
ton.
Williston Middle School
will start at 9 a.m. instead
of 8:03 a.m. and it will end
at 3:17 p.m. instead of 2:10
p.m. Williston High School
will start at 9:10 a.m. instead
of 8:10 a.m. and it will end
at either 3 p.m. or 3:07 p.m.
rather than 2:28 p.m.

After the May 23 meeting,
the school board will vote on
the proposed pilot project on
June 6.
School District Transpor-
tation Coordinator Steve Ty-
son, Assistant Superintendent
Jeff Davis and several other
staff members have worked


with Norris to create the plan.
From his time as a principal
to today, Norris said he has
wanted to have different bus
service for the youngest stu-
dents. He dislikes them being
exposed to certain language
and activities performed by
older students.
The majority of behavior
issues are from the buses, he
said. This plan reduces the
potential for overcrowded
buses. It reduces the number
of buses needed to serve the
Williston area by as many as
seven, because some buses
will be used twice. After first
delivering elementary stu-
dents, some buses return to
run routes for older students.
No driver will lose his job,
Norris said, because there are
currently vacancies. Usually
at least two substitute drivers
are needed daily. Mileage will
increase but this is believed
to be offset by lower payroll
costs, Norris said.
Levy County has 4,449 stu-
dents eligible for bus trans-
portation this year. Gadsden,
Walton and Wakulla counties
have similar sizes of students
who can ride buses and they
use the two-tier system, Nor-
ris said. Alachua and Marion
are much larger, and they use
either a two-tier or three-tier
bus system.
The superintendent sees


one possible issue. There may
be some families with older
children who watch siblings.
He said the one-hour differ-


ence in arrival time at home
is worth the benefit that will
be realized for all elementary-
aged children. The one hour

Chairwoman Toni Collins
asked each member for any
area of concern they had af-
ter closing the floor to public
comment and then asked for
a motion.
After a couple minutes of
awkward silence, Collins
asked if the issue should be
tabled. By consensus, they
agreed not to prolong the
matter.
She asked for a motion
again.
Receiving none, she then
ceded the chair to Bill Ham-
mond which allowed her to
make a motion.
While the chairman may
vote, he cannot initiate a mo-
tion.
Collins then moved to
deny the application and the
motion was quickly seconded
by Ron Grant.
But when it came time
for the vote, Thomas Harper
asked to amend the motion
and after discussion on par-
liamentary procedure, he
tried to add the addendum
that a traffic study be done.

The amendment failed and
when the vote on the original
motion to deny was put to the
floor it was only Collins and
Grant voting to deny the ap-
plication.
The other three, Vaughn
Lee, Harper and Bill Ham-
mond, voted against the mo-
tion.
But that didn't signify ap-
proval of the application.
"We don't want to table it,"
Collins said. "We don't want
to approve it. We don't want
to deny it. What is it you all
want to do?"
Hammond said he was for

approval but there were con-
cerns. Harper suggested list-
ing the concerns to resolve
the deadlock. Lee maintained
that most of the concerns
were hypothetical situations.
Time wore on until Grant
spoke.
"It appears this board can't
make up its mind," he be-
gan as he made a motion to
approve the application and
allow staff to work with Mc-
Jordan on a traffic study. The
motion passed 4-1 with Col-
lins dissenting.

Ryan Bell' has started
building his Hungry Howie's
and the Florida Department
of Community Affairs is con-
sidering granting another ex-
tension of the Bronson 2001
CDBG Economic Develop-
menit contract. The current
contract expired on May 2,
according to Dick Edwards.
This is what led into the
discussion by Edwards about
methods for the city of Bron-
son to improve its odds for
receiving a CDBG.
Edwards said the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs will be starting its
CDBG 2006-07 cycle on
June 1.
For Bronson to be eligible
to apply for a 2006-07
CDBG, DCA must approve
the council's request to extend
the closout date for its current
ED project and the town must
enhance its application by
hiring a TemporaryAssistance
to Needy Families employee.
The city must have
engineering plans to
demonstrate the project is
ready to bid. They city must
make sure that the Bronston
Sewer Project continues
to be listed as a priority on


the Levy County Office of
Emergency Management's
local mitigation strategy. If
possible, Edwards added, it
would help for the Florida
Department ofEnvironmental
Protection to cite the city,
although not to the degree
that the DEP imposes a high
fine.
Mayor Beatrice Mongo
said the city council at its last
meeting agreed to advertise
for a part-time, as-needed
city manager, engineer and
municipal attorney to help
move the sewer project
along.
In another sewer matter, a
citizen asked if the city will
be able to handle the new
Bronson High School sewage
when it opens.
The mayor said she spoke
with DEP and the grant writer,
and she believes the city has
the capability to handle the
capacity right now for BHS
to connect to the city sewer
system. Mongo also said
she wants the city to move
forward with advertising 'to
annex BHS into the city.

Students learn art of tessellations

Mike Segal opens new door at BES


Cedar Key artist Mike
Segal brought his bold
vibrant paintings to Bronson
Elementary School for
everyone to view, and then
taught the 4th and 5t graders
how to be tessellation artists,
too.
Fourth and fifth grade
students saw FCAT math
vocabulary in action when
Segal walked each 4th and 5"h
grade class through the steps
of developing a tessellation.
The students also learned the
history oftessellations, which
has become more specialized
to mean a repeating pattern
that locks into itself without
gaps or overlapping. The.
artist most renowned for this
art style is M.C. Escher.
Segal encouraged the
students to repeat the lines
in their grids to develop their
first shape and then to repeat
the shape over and over until
it also made itself like magic!
Students ventured to find and
enhance any recognizable
form in their shapes and to
repeat the details to enhance
their tessellations.
It was a very successful art
encounter and many excited
students went on to make
beautiful larger tessellations
on their own, and in Manny's
art class.
The students and teachers
are very thankful to the late
Linda Proctor for the time
and effort she spent writing
the grant that provided the
funding to hire the Artists in
the Schools throughout Levy.
County, and which provided
funds for the All County
Band this year.


"We are grateful to the State
of Florida, Department of State-
Division of Cultural Affairs, the
Florida Arts Council, and the
National Endowment for the
Arts for sponsoring the grant
money, and also to the SBLC
for matching the funds that were
awarded from Tallahassee," said
Mrs. Manansala, BES art teacher.
"Our students need the arts for
a well rounded education. Thank
you to all who recognize this
important fact and who respond
to the challenge of supporting the
arts in education!"

County fire protection fee helps fund eight

departments; Chieflanid want EMS money, too

members balked a bit about
the amount of money given
by Levy County to pay the
Chiefland Fire Department
for its runs in the county,
including for medical help.
They want funding from the
county's Emergency Medical
Services budget, too.
In the previous fiscal year,
the county paid CFD $56,000
for District 7 coverage, CFD
Chief David Burnett said.
The amount for this fiscal
year is $72,000 for District
7. The county is also paying
$25,454 for CFD to cover
Fowler's Bluff.
Fowler's Bluff used to be
an independent station, but
now it can be considered like
-Station 2 for CFD, although
there is an agreement with
that department's board of
directors that includes the city
and county, the chief said.

The county and all of
the fire department leaders,
Burnett said, are planning to
meet with the people in the
northern, southern, eastern,
and western and central parts
of Levy County to let people
know where the fire protection
service is today and where it
needs to go. Those meetings
are not yet scheduled, but this
will happen, Burnett added.
Levy County Coordinator
Fred Moody explained how
the entire county is protected
through eight municipal fire
departments and five rural
fire departments.
Every person who owns
property in Levy County
pays $34 per residential
parcel, Moody said, for fire
protection. This fee is an
increase from before, where
it had remained stagnant for
many years.
There have been changes

over the methods for


providing .
fire and
medical
rescue
services,
the county
coordinator
said.
T h e r BURNEi

stations
are five EMS

throughout the 1,100 square
miles of Levy County,
Moody said. Chiefland and
Williston fire departments are
now helping the county EMS
by providing first- responder
services. These firefighters
stabilize patients until an
ambulance arrives.
This is why the Chiefland
City Commission contends it
wants money from the county
EMS budget for the next fiscal
year, which begins Oct. 1.
Moody said the, Levy
County Fire Administration
Boardhas abudgetcommittee,
which is looking at all of the
financial needs related to fire
protection in the county. This
board is doing a great job, he
added.
For instance, it is using a
recent study to help determine
where equipment can be
placed to help lower the ISO
ratings .insurance companies
put on homeowners'
insurance.
The lowertheISOrating,the
lower the insurance premium
will be for property.
In addition to the CFD, the
other seven municipal fire
departments are the Fanning
Springs Fire Department,
which may receive revenue
from Gilchrist County
because that fire district is
partly in that county, the
Cedar Key Fire Department,
the Bronson Fire Department,
the Williston Fire Department,
the Inglis Fire Department, the
Yankeetown Fire Department
and the Otter Creek Fire
Department.


The five rural fire
departments are Rainbow
Lakes Estates Fire
Department, which is right
next to Marion County, the
South Levy Fire Department,
just outside Inglis, the
Gulf Hammock Volunteer
Fire Department and the
Rosewood Fire Department.
Moody said there are three
departments within an eight-
mile span in the county. They
.are Yankeetown, Inglis and
South Levy. At some point,
the county may consider
consolidating these in some
manner.
There are two stations
that comprise one county
fire district the Morriston/
Montbrook Fire District.
This fire district, Moody said,
does not want to stand alone.
It may become the first Levy
County Fire Department.
The mechanics for
budgeting this department
as part of the county, like the
county road department or
any other county department,
is not yet finished, Moody
said.
CFD Chief Burnett said
he wants to make sure his
department provides the
highest level of service for the
cost. He wants to take care of
city residents while keeping
up with growth outside the
city, in the county.
To do that, Burnett said, all
of the leaders in the cities and
in Levy County. must plan
ahead. They need to obtain
the money for infrastructure,
which will be required to
provide adequate fire and
rescue services.
Burnett said he believes, for
instance there is another fire
station needed near Chiefland
Golf and Country Club area.
There are 3,000 residents
in that area near the Jiffy
Store, he added, according to
information he received from
the rural electric cooperative.

Sinkhole resolution may transfer ownership


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Most of the residents
along a short stretch of 10th
Terrace in Chiefland want the
city to abrogate, or abolish
by authoritative action, the
street in front of their houses,
City Manager Rodney Russ
said.
In his plan, the local
government will retain its
responsibility to maintain
water and sewer lines
underneath the street but the
city will give the property to
the landowners abutting a
small sinkhole.
That property to be
abandoned, which Russ said
"is not enough to sneeze
at," goes about 40 feet out
from the edge of each of the
residents' front yards.
If approved by the
Chiefland City Commission,
the plan would create "a nice
little private drive," Russ
said, where people can reach
their houses but not have to
tolerate through traffic. This
will keep weight off of the
sinkhole area as well.
One resident said she is
especially pleased with this
idea.
JulieParker,whohas owned
her home at 217 N.E. 10th
Terrace for the past 33 years,
would love for the city to
close that public throughway
and make it private property.
She remembers when the city
filled the sinkhole a couple of
years ago.
Every time it rains, the
water goes down there, she
said. That water erodes the
limestone underneath the
road and creates an empty
space where limestone once
existed. Therefore, the land
sinks to fill that space.
If the city closed the
road, then that n would solve
a. problem fom truckers
ignoring a sign that says "No
Trucks."
"We've had people fly
through there," Parker said.
"We've had log trucks
running through there, even
with that sign.'"
Parker remembers when a
dog was killed on the street
when her 37-year-old son
Paul was five or six years
old.
"That's why my yard is all
fenced," she said. "I just got
me two puppies."
Russ told Parker that she
can move her fence out once
she owns that piece, but this
landowner said she will leave
the fence where it stands
now.
As for the potential private
drive wearing out, Parker
said that road was last paved
about 30 years ago. Without
traffic, it should 'last many
more years.
Russ said the residents
would have to fill the sinkhole
if it opened after they gain
possession of the land. That
may be 100 or 200 years
from now, the city manager
said, or it could be next year.
There is no way to determine
that, he said.
Lannis and Priscilla Dortch

and the condition of the road
right now, they are looking
out their front windows at an
eyesore.
Russ said his poll of
residents adjoining the
sinkhole area showed most of
the people want the city to fill
the hole, and then to surrender
the public land to those private
interests with an agreement
that the city will still have
access to underground pipes
in the area.
One woman who lives
on the street asked not to be
quoted, but said she prefers
having the city maintain
possession of the street --
simply because ofthe possible
future cost of having to refill
the sinkhole.

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Children with special needs
become adults with special
needs.
In Levy County, steps are
being taken to help certain
students make the transition
from high school. to adult-
hood, and for some of those
special students, to make the
transition to college.
This program is underway
here, said Rosalind Hall,
the director of Exceptional


Student Education in Levy
County.

Known as "Project Con-
nect" and funded by the
Florida Department of Edu-
cation, this assistance started
in 1999. Cindy Battle, an
ESE teacher, has been very
involved in Project Connect.
She has formed focus groups
comprised of businesses, stu-
dents and agencies to help
these students with various
levels of disability.

There was also a separate
group for parents.
The "College for a Day
Program" takes ESE students
to colleges and helps them
see where they need to go to
apply themselves to receive
similar help as they have re-
ceived while in high school.
Training for Levy County's
ESE teachers is another as-
pect of Project Connect.
Battle said she is setting
up a Career Day program for
ESE students, too.

Levy gels for nuclear accident response


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
It is through the combined
efforts of many people in Levy
and Citrus counties that the
federal government sees once
again this area is prepared
for a disaster, according to
Levy County Emergency
Management Director Mark
Johnson.
A weeklong series of tests
started April 25 to prove the
area can respond to a nuclear
problem at the Progress
Energy nuclear power plant
in Crystal River.
The exercise last Monday
was held at Lebanon Station
and included people from
many agencies in Levy and
Citrus counties.
About every two
years, Johnson said, the
Levy County Emergency
Management Department
trains all of the emergency
response agencies, the school
board, the road department,


law enforcement agencies,
emergency medical services,
the fire departments and other
departments to respond to a
nuclear accident.
The Federal Graded,
2006 Homeland Security,
Radiological Emergency
Planning Exercise is the title
for this year's test. Levy
County, in conjunction with
Progress Energy, Citrus
County, the Florida Division
of Emergency Management
and the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security, conducts
a series of drills to see
how well the group works
together.
This demonstrates,
Johnson said, the capabilities
of these agencies to protect
the citizens of Levy County
in the unlikely event of a
catastrophe at Crystal River
Unit III Nuclear Power Plant.
These are federally mandated
-tests.
The federal evaluation

criteria require that Levy Center, coordinate with
County fully staff and activate utilities, and state and federal
its Emergency Operations agencies as well as with Citrus


County to prove the region is
prepared in case of a nuclear
problem, Johnson said.
Before starting in Levy
County in 1998, Johnson was
a radiation safety officer in
the nuclear power industry
for 18 years. He started here
as the radiological emergency
planning coordinator and
became director of the
Levy County Emergency
Management Department
three years ago.
Since starting in 1998, this
is the fifth federally graded
exercise for Johnson.
This weeklong exercise
was the first such event for
Levy County Radiological
Emergency Planner John
MacDonald. MacDonald,
who joined Levy County in
2004 as the REP, has taken
the reins and trained all Levy
County emergency response
agencies to prepare for the
graded exercises, Johnson
said.


"In my opinion, John
MacDonald has been a
tremendous asset for Levy
County," Johnson said.
"But this isn't about John
MacDonald or Mark Johnson,
or any one person. We train
for these exercises as we train
for an all-hazards response as
a county.
"Our emergency response
capability in Levy County for
the exercises -- and for the
past 2004 and 2005 hurricane
seasons are a direct result of
the dedication and teamwork
of all of the department
heads, workers and agencies
within Levy County and the
municipalities," he added.
Ultimately, this is about
the people of Levy County
coming together to meet the
challenges of responding to
emergencies during times
of disaster, whether they are
natural or manmade, Johnson
concluded.

Pre-K through 1st graders


were entertained by the music
andsongs ofMrs. JanetRucker
from Gainesville. Rucker
invited audience participation
by asking youngsters to help
fill in words to the folk songs
she sang.
Her first songs were
accompanied guitar
strumming. She later told
them that she was going
to switch to an instrument
that was much quieter and
mellower one that could
probably lull them to sleep.
She then picked up her banjo
and those in the audience.

before knew she was kidding
them. The other students
soon learned that the sharp
tinny sounds of banjos aren't
for lullabies!'
The 2nd and 3rd graders
enjoyed' music made by
Rucker and her guitar.
When she changed
instruments the students
learned .about a style of
banjo picking called claw
hammer. She discussed and
demonstrated this often loud
style of playing the banjo
which was developed in
America.
Rucker closed out both of
her performances with 'Down

several hundred elementary
aged singers. They rattled the
roof and stayed on key thanks

senator.
"Having personally tried

the one right here in Levy

the outdoors and the adven-
ture, but most of all, they
love the finish.
"It's hell out there,"
Hooper said. "We've never
done that well, so we're kind
of praying that one time, no
one except us will show up
so we can just do it at our
leisure and win."
Unfortunately, this wasn't
their year, as more than 100
adventurers raced Saturday
through miles of shallow,
weaving river.
Iggy Carbonell, a volun-
teer, didn't make it much
easier for the racers. His job
was to stand at the mid-point
of the race and make sure ev-
ery one is alive and well.
"When they ask me how
much further they have to go
I'll tell them 'two-and-a-half
hours,'" he said. "Really,
they only have 45 minutes,
but it's fun to see them gasp-
ing 'Oh, no.'"
At the end of the race,
organizers placed a huge
log that bridges over the
river. Racers must lift the
canoe over the log and hurl
themselves over the log. One
racer nearly sunk his canoe
as he climbed over the log.
He and his teammate pad-
dled their underwater canoe
across the finish line.
"We did it," they gasped
as they crossed.
Before the race, Tamera
Arnold had never canoed
before.
"This is all her fault," she
said, pointing to her team-
mate, Sara White.
The two Williston resi-
dents said they look forward
to seeing what canoeing is


How many Easter Lilies did you get?


BY D.T. PENDLETON, F.C.H.P
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
What to do with Easter
lilies can be a question, but
I love them. This type of lily
has a bulb surrounded by a
grouping of tiny bulbs called
bulblets.
To plant lilies in the garden,
enjoy them when they bloom
then cut off the old blooms
and leave about 6" above
ground. You can separate
plants if there were more than
one in each pot but I don't
bother.
Each little bulblet will
eventually create a new plant,
and you could separate these
as well but I don't bother with
that either because it will take
several years before they will
produce anything beautiful.
I plant the whole pot.
Pick a sunny spot with good
overhead sun. They don't
need sun all day but all day
sun is OK too. This should be
a spot where other perennials
are planted because lilies
don't like to be disturbed
once planted.
I have dedicated an entire
plot to this type of lilies.
Over head sun is important
because if the sun comes in
only from one direction then
you will have crooked lilies!
They don't need fancy soil
either. If you have typical,
brown sandy soil, that is fine.
If you have a new home with
orange or yellow builder's
sand, mix in a bag of topsoil
before planting.
Lilies 'will come up von
their own. They like bone
meal broad cast in the bed in
the fall and that is about all
the culture they need. Have
tall flower rings or stakes on
hand then wait.
They will begin to. emerge
in April or May, depending
on our winter.


EASTER LILIES are ready
spring.

There are also related lilies
that come in many colors and
fragrances. These are Asiatic
and Oriental lilies. They will
grow the same way. I toss
them all in the same plot.-
Easter Lilies don't really
bloom at Easter. They are
forced into blooming by the
commercial growers. Once
planted in the garden they
will bloom some time in the
summer, usually in June or
July, depending on when they
emerged after winter.

Weldon new park director

BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
Hard work pays off and Tuesday, the Levy County Board
of County Commissioners rewarded the efforts of two of
its employees with promotions.
Matt Weldon, the assistant director of Parks and Rec-
reation, has stepped up to lead that department and David
Weatherford is now director of Animal Services.
Both men were lauded for their work over the years and
each will receive substantial raises to go along with their
new responsibilities.
In other personnel matters, the BOCC also approved
four-year term appointments for Thadeus Barber and Ron
Grant to the Levy Planning Commission.
The board also reluctantly accepted the resignation of
George Hermansen as the Veterans' Service Officer. Her-
mansen is retiring due to health concerns and will move to
Alabama sometime in July.


As we like to say its not about tree banking services
you won't use or gifts you don t need It s about the people
ot Perkins Financial Group many ot whom have lived and
worked in this community for generations and who provide
