BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Trace and Kelsi Alexander
sold watermelons and
cantaloupes May 20 on U.S.
Highway 27 in front of the
farm of their grandmother,
Melba Tillis.
The tradition, family and
agricultural basis reflected
by these children is part of'
the foundation for a 52-year
tradition the Chiefland
Watermelon Festival.
Gov. Jeb Bush has
designated the week of June
1-7 as Florida Watermelon
week.
Trace, 14, and Kelsi, 10,
are the children of Rob and
Jackie Alexander. They
both know the festival is set
for Chiefland on June 3. In
fact, Kelsi was pleased to
announce that her 17-year-
old sister, Kara Alexander is
one of the contestants in the


Chiefland Watermelon Queen
Contest.
These children operated a
watermelon stand Sarurda)
that included a trailer that had
been brought to the side of
the highway from their uncle
Murray Tillis' watermelon
shed. That shed is behind
Mary's Little T Restaurant,
north of Chiefland on U.S.
Highway 19.


Thetrailerhadasignthatsaid
"Little Red's Watermelons
and Cantaloupes." That
name comes from Harold
Tillis, Murray's son, who has
red hair and used it to sell
watermelons in years gone
by, Rob Alexander said.
While the Alexander
children sold watermelons
west of Bronson on U.S.
Highway 27, the start of
watermelon sales season was
shown to be in full swing up
and down the highway.
At the same time the
Alexander children sold
melons west of Bronson,
Chuck Owens and his family
sold them east of Bronson.
Owens grew those
watermelons on his farm near
Chiefland. He was selling
them out of the back of his
truck next to U.S. 27. Taylor
Owens, 5, and Buck Owens,
9, helped their father that
day. Nina Owens,
the children's
grandmother,
stopped by on her
way to a mall in
Gainesville. Felicia
Owens, whomarked
her 11th birthday
that very Saturday,
S. and Brittany
Owens, who turned
13 on May 27, were
both bound for the
Gainesville Mall with their
grandmother to celebrate the
occasion of both girls' births.
And on another day
that week,. another child
entered the world of being a
watermelon entrepreneur.
Jacob Morrison, 11, sells
watermelons on May 23
that his grandfather, Wayne
Beauchamp grew on the
side of Levy County Road

contest for the 2006' Chiefland Watermelon Queen.

is among the many melon
sellers at this time of year.
Meanwhile, the wheels
turned to bring the 2006
Watermelon Festival into
being. Chiefland Activities,


created by the Chiefland
Woman's Club Inc., sponsors
the festival.
Barbara Lunsford has been
involved with the watermelon
festival for about 20 years
now and is heading the project
this year, too.


This 52nd year for the big
event in Chiefland will be
similar to those of years gone
by.

Hurricane preparedness starts now


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Today (June 1) marks the start of the 2006
hurricane season and Levy County Emergency
Management has a website to help people
prepare before their electricity goes off.
The website is http://www.levydisaster.
com. It is the "go to" website for this county.
Following is a verbatim copy of a recent
posting -- a notification of a voluntary burn
ban.
Levy County Emergency Management in
cooperation with Florida Division of Forestry
have decided to institute a VOLUNTARY
bur ban for Levy County.
Here are some of the reasons why this
decision was made:
Levy County has not received significant
rainfall in 30 days.
The drought index currently is 555 and is
expected to rise until we have rainfall.
Levy County Fire Departments have
responded to numerous wildfire incidents.
Currently, the 2006 wildfire season is
mirroring drought-like conditions similar
to those in 1998, when wildfires charred
thousands of acres across Florida and
destroyed many homes. In fact, from Jan.
1 through May 14 of 2006, 2,502 wildfires
have burned 101,624 acres in Florida. The
1998 wildfire season didn't turn severe until
Memorial Day weekend.
Although a mandatory bum ban has not
been issued, it is recommended to citizens
that they delay any outside burning until
conditions improve.
The Division of Forestry may continue
issuing bum permits to agricultural and land
clearing companies on a day to day basis

depending on conditions.
Hurricane Preparedness
Information about evacuations from
disasters including hurricanes is on the site.
Shelter information is also on the website.
Levy County Emergency Management
Director Mark Johnson encourages everyone
to visit the site and' click on its various
webpages and links.
Levy County Sheriff's Office Computer
Forensic Investigator Mark Morgan created
the website for the 2004 hurricane season.
Now, with the LCSO needing him more for
its purposes, Nancy Greene, the president
of AllQuest of Williston is the website
manager.
This website is only one resource.
Johnson shares a belief of most emergency
management directors throughout the coastal
states of the country.
"People have to take ownership for
themselves," Johnson said. "They have to
prepare for the storm season before it is
here. They have to use common sense. Each
person has to have disaster plans, whether
they are living alone, or in a large family."
Help the Elderly
Individuals in Levy County need to help
the elderly, he added. The elderly and others
who have special needs should contact the
Levy County Health Department at 352-
486-5300 to register with the Levy County
Special Needs Program. They can also
register online through links that are on the
Emergency Management website.

Drug cards

available
Levy County recently
launched a discount card
program to help consumers.
cope with the high price of
prescription drugs.
The county is making free
prescription drug discount
cards available under a
program sponsored by
the National Association
of Counties (NACo) that
offers average savings of 20
percent off the retail price of
commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used
by all county residents,
regardless of age, income,
or existing health coverage
and are accepted at all of
the county's pharmacies. A
national network of more
than 57,000 participating
retail pharmacies also will
honor the NACo prescription
discount card.
"Levy County is proud
to be one of the counties
nationwide participating with
NACo," said Lilly Rooks,
county commissioner. "The
NACo prescription discount
card offers significant
savings for the uninsured
and underinsured residents
of our county, and even those
fortunate to have prescription
coverage can use the card to
save money on drugs that are
not covered by their health
plan. Residents do not have to
be Medicare beneficiaries to
be eligible for this program."
Cards will be available at
all county pharmacies and at
all public libraries. County
residents can call toll free 1-
877-321-2652 or visit https://
naco.advancerx.com for
assistance with the program.
"Using the- NACo
prescription. discount
card is easy," said Rooks.
"Simply present, it at a
participating pharmacy.
There is no enrollment form,
no membership fee and
no restrictions or limits on
frequency of use. Cardholders
and their family members
may use the card any time
their prescriptions are not
covered by insurance."


Planning commission to send EAR to DCA


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
On a motion by
Levy County Planning'
Commissioner Vaughn Lee,
seconded by Commissioner
Ron Grant, the Levy
County Comprehensive
Plan Evaluation and
Appraisal Report (EAR) was
recommended for submission
by the Levy County Board
of County Commissioners
to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs (DCA).
The Lee-Grant motion met
with a 5-0 vote on May 23.
This latest response to the
EAR includes revisions in the
methodology for determining
commercial land use in Levy
County.
It was the biggest issue
that County Planning
Director Kathy Winburn
believes she overcame.
There was little discussion
about some of the issues that
Tuesday evening, because
most of them had been
reviewed before by this
advisory group, according
to statements made at the
meeting.
The calendar for EAR
shows the county commission
may adopt it on June 12 at a
meeting that starts at 6:30
p.m. in the commission
meeting room in the county
courthouse in Bronson.
The EAR is due at the DCA
by July 1;
In September, DCA will
submit its preliminary finding
of sufficiency. In October,
DCA will rule whether it finds
the plan to have sufficiency or
if the EAR is not sufficient.
The countyhas 18months,or
24 months with an extension,
to adopt amendments to the
comprehensive plan based on
the final EAR.
Planning Commissioner
Thomas -Harper asked how
the comprehensive plan, as
it exists now, will impact the
economy. If the county were
developed as it is slated to be
developed in this plan, Harper
asked, will the tax base meet
the service requirements?
There was no clear answer
to the question, other than
to note the fiscal element
is being added by the state,
and this county is expected
to have that element in the
plan for the September 2007
EAR.
Another commissioner
asked a different question.
"Do we want growth?"
Planning Commissioner Lee
asked.
He answered his own
question by saying "they"
say growth is desired for
Levy County, but "they" do
not want people moving here
because it forces the addition
or expansion of schools.
Grant added that people
moving into the county add
to services required from
law enforcement agencies,
fire protection, Emergency
Medical Services, water and
sewer services and other
public resources.
Winburn said the


county should follow its
comprehensive plan in regard
to growth, because it is a
blueprint for proper growth
practices.
Finally, the group voted
to change the regular July
meeting. The new date is July


10, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the
county commission meeting
room in the courthouse in
Bronson.
The June meeting is set for
the same time and place on
June 5.


Some discussion was


out of sunshine


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County Plan-
ning Commission thought
it was acting legally when
members discussed the
Department of Commu-
nity Affairs governance of
water prior to its May 23
meeting.
Commission Chairwom-
an Toni Collins even went
as far as to say the issue
was legislative. "So it's not
violating the Sunshine Law.
We can discuss the comp
plan. It is not necessary for
us to follow the Sunshine
Law here."
However, according to
the 2006 Florida Govern-
ment in the Sunshine Man-
ual and the First Amend-
ment Foundation, Collins is
wrong.
"Advisory boards cre-
ated pursuant to law or or-
dinance or otherwise estab-
lished by public agencies
are subject to the Sunshine
Law, even though their
recommendations are not
binding on the entities that
create them," according to
the GOVERNMENT-IN-
THE-SUNSHINE MANU-
AL 2006 Edition.
Several Florida attorney
generals have given opin-
ions showing the law re-
flects this fact.
On page 3 of the manu-
al, it notes that legislation
iiiiplementation advisory
bodies such as an advisory
committee appointed to as-
sist a state agency with the
implementation of legisla-
tion, or an ad hoc commit-
tee appointed by a mayor
for the purpose of making
recommendations concern-
ing legislation are both cov-
ered by the law.
The infraction occurred
immediately prior to last
week's workshop when
Collins discussed the wa-
ter issue with commission
members Ron Grant and
Thaddeus Barber. The three
were in full view of the
press and were advised at
that time by this newspaper
that a Sunshine Law was
being breached. That was
when Collins disagreed.
However, the exact sub-
ject came up later during
the properly advertised pub-
lic meeting and many of the
three's words were echoed
from the .earlier conversa-
tion.
The law is clear about
government groups meet-
ing out of the public view.
Levy County Attorney
Anne Bast Brown was


absent from the May 23
meeting. When reached the
next day, Brown said she
would advise Collins to
adhere to the law. Brown
said she will advise Collins
against speaking with any
other planning commission
member about any matter
upon which they may vote
in the foreseeable future,
unless that discussion is in
a properly advertised pub-
lic meeting.
First Amendment Foun-
dation Director Adria Harp-
er, who is an attorney who
specializes in the Sunshine
Law, said Collins' claim
of a legislation exemption
is one that she has never
heard before. Nevertheless,
it appears as if Collins vio-
lated the law by speaking
with other planning com-
mission members before
the meeting was called to
order. It had been adver-
tised to start at a particular
time and people who may
have been interested in the
discussion would think that
discussion was when it was
advertised, Harper said.
"The Sunshine Law is
there as a Constitutional
right of access," Harper
said. "It is not to be taken
lightly."
This law. gives citizens a
right to participate in every.
part of the process leading
to any decisions by govern-
ment leaders, she added.
The people are not only
interested in the ultimate
decision, but in all of the
discussions leading to that
point and which are part of
the decision-making pro-
cess.
When public entities are
going to talk about any-
thing that is reasonably a
matter of public business
in the foreseeable future,
they can't circumvent the
public's right bf access by
conducting secret conver-
sations and then claim-
ing there is an exemption,
when no such exemption
exists, Harper said
There is no valid statu-
tory exemption that seems
to be cited in this instance,
she said. The Levy Coun-
ty Planning Commission
members need to limit their
discussions to public dis-
cussions when the issues
are something they may
consider in the foreseeable
future because the pub-
lic wants to know, Harper
said.
"We'll be happy to do a
seminar for public officials
in Levy County," she said.

Residents turn out for no shows in Yankeetown

Meeting cancelled, no quorum among dwindling council


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Everyone came -to Yan-
keetown prepared for action
Friday evening, but there
was no meeting because one
councilwoman was absent.
The mayor had her make-
shift gavel, a wooden meat
mallet. The protesters had
their homemade signs for
picketing. The developer had
his high-tech audio tape-re-
cording device. A promising
attorney had his big briefcase.
WCJB TV 20 had its cam-
era and microphones. Local
newspaper reporters had their
tools too.
Yankeetown Council
Member Mary Pate did not
show up, however, and nei-
ther of the two council mem-
bers who resigned were ready
or willing to rescind their res-
ignations again. So, with only
Mayor Joanne Johannesson,
and councilmen Dan Bow-
man and Glen Stetz present,
there was no quorum. After 20
minutes of waiting, the may-
or asked the 60 or so people
to say the pledge to the flag,
and then she announced they
would wait for Pate no more.
There would be no meeting
that night.
Attorney Kenneth L. Warn-
stadt ofBrooksville was there,
because the mayor was ready
to recommend town council
appoint him to replace re-
signed City Attorney David
LaCroix. Accepting the resig-
nations of Town Clerk Debra
Stines and Deputy Clerk Lau-
ra Coyles was on the agenda,
as was the official acceptance
of resignations from Town
Councilman Roger .Myric


and Diane Blomgren, and M.
Derijke of the planning com-
mission.
The special meeting would
have started at 7:30 p.m. on
May 26, when most people
had already started their
three-day Memorial Day
weekend.
Before the meeting, Johan-
nesson said she was leaving
town for a couple of weeks.
She said she is going to be in
Alaska from June 1 through
"around June 15."
In the meantime, the city
lost its clerk and deputy clerk
on May 31, disabling any de-
velopment operations, except
for the projects that former
Zoning Official Stan Moore,
who allegedly resigned as
well, is willing to continue.
In essence, Yankeetown
government has fallen apart.
There is not even authoriza-
tion to pay for temporary help
in the clerk's office because
no quorum existed to accept
the mayor's recommendation
for that authorization.
While the town's develop-
ment is at a standstill, except
projects done by an absentee
allegedly-resigned zoning
official, one developer was
well equipped to record the
meeting and any conversa-
tion in the room before the
meeting. Two big, sensitive
microphones that transmitted
radio signals to his operation
zone, at the back of the meet-
ing room of the Yankeetown
Woman's Club, where he
had quickly put up two fold-
ing card tables for an audio
system and laptop computer
operation, were ready to pick
up any dialogue.

Like Johannesson's meat
mallet gavel, those micro-
phones for collecting infor-
mation from public meetings
represents and reflects the
emphasis on the problems in
Yankeetown.
More than a few people
were willing to talk about
positive and negative aspects
of development, but most of
them did not want to be quot-
ed in the newspaper.
One man from Alabama
said if these people didn't
want Yankees coming to the
area, then they should not
have sold their land to them.
Another man said the town
needs a stronger tax base to
provide municipal services.
They were among the people
who did not want their names
published.
Others said they would
vote against development,
but they fear reprisals by em-
ployers or neighbors.
Nevertheless, seven pro-
testers shared their names
as they picketed before the
meeting started. Jeffrey Meu-
rer, John Bower, Ed Dawkins,
SMarsha Drew, Nancy Moore,
R. Goode, and Patricia Can-
dela held signs for all to see.
Their signs called for
people to exercise their First
Amendment rights. They
Want to protect the manatees,
from developers. They want
their town back. They op-
pose sewers. And they are
"Citizens for Responsible
Growth." The committee
seeking the recall of Mayor
Johannesson is gathering sig-
natures and expects to suc-
ceed with some ease.

OPINION


THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 2006


OUR VIEW


We take the law seriously

Florida residents are fortunate to live in a state where
the legislature believes that government in the
sunshine is the people's best recourse for living in a
republic.
We in the local press are defenders of the people's right to
know and we will always take a stand on the side of knowl-
edge.
SIt does not give us pleasure to slap government agencies
on the wrist. It does not earn us more money and job promo-
tions to point out irregularities in law opinions.
We do it because we represent you--the public. It would be
impossible for 35,000 people to crowd into the courthouse
for meetings, or call the Highway Patrol for accident reports.
So we act on your behalf, garnering information that you
need to know about the issues that affect you and your life.
We are your eyes and ears. We make sure information is
not withheld. We report the news when it happens.
We have your back. We've got you covered.


YOUR VIEW

I


wrong editor

I once worked for a
newspaper owner
who rated the success
of a newspaper on the
number of letters to the edi-
tor the newspaper received.
He believed that when a
paper
was do-

job, it
was pro-
voking
thought
in the
com-
muni tm
and that
thought CAROLYN RISNER
would
manifest itself in letters.
I haven't found that to be
true in Levy County--YET.
And that's not to say we
don't get letters here at the
Journal. We do. Some of
them, however, aren't meant
for print and some have'
found their way here by ac-
cident.
Examples of recent letters,
all paraphrased, of course,
include:
1) I was hoo-dooed at a
local business. I want my
friends and neighbors to
know what a scoundrel John
Doe is and that they better be
warned before they actually
spend their money with him.
It wasn't printed. Why?
We don't take up customer
complaints against private .
businesses in the Levy
County Journal. On any
given day, at any given
time, most businesses could
be charged with customer
neglect. Tearing: out a man's
livelihood because you had a
bad experience there is not a ,
good idea.
Solution: Wrong forum. If
he really is a scoundrel, tell
the Better Business Bureau.
2) My husband was
injured on the job. He
sacrificed for his employer.
Now they're giving him the
runaround about what he's
entitled to. People should
know what's among us in
this community.
Solution: Again, wrong
forum. If this is the case,
you need to speak with the
Department of Labor or
consult an attorney. We don't
intervene with job disputes
in private businesses.
Now those two letters
were signed. I know who
wrote them. They provided
phone numbers for verifica-
tion purposes.
It's the ones who seek
anonymity that I don't un-
derstand.
Case in point, letter 3)
You're new to the county
and don't know all the
rogues and thieves who
dwell among us. The same
people who purport to be
moral, upright role models
of the community are the
very people who are raping
this county and leaving a bad
taste in people's mouths.
You would be wise not
to run anything about these
people in your paper.
You would be wiser to dis-
associate yourself from these
people in all instances.
And then there were
several examples of how bad
some people are.
It was unsigned.
Solution: If the writer was
indeed concerned about the
people of this community; if
the writer really cared about
this newspaper; if the writer
really cared abut me, the
individual, he would have
signed the letter or better
yet called and said, "Look

H ello, and wel-
come to this
week's Sheriff's
Corner. I have several items
to tell you about this week.
But, first, I hope, everyone
had a good holiday. Also,
remember'that schools are,
for the most part, out for the
summer. However, there
will be
increased
activ-
ity ev-
erywhere
else. So
please be
mindful
and care-
ful this
summer.
Next, I need to report
our newest Sexual Preda-
tor. Lamont Lewis Nelson,
black male 03/01/1980 has
moved to 12451 NE 108th
Terrace, Archer.
Mr. Nelson is our sev-
enth predator. We are cur-
rently monitoring all of our
sex offenders and predators
with once a month contacts.
We'll keep you posted.
I would also like to bring
everyone who has children
who. qualify for car seats
up to date on our current
laws.
First, all children ages 3
and under must be in an ap-
proved car seat. Children 4
6 must be in a booster seat
for the appropriate size or
in a lap seat and shoulder
belt.
Anyone under the age
of 18 who is anywhere in
a vehicle must wear seat-
belts. Also anyone in the
front seat of a vehicle must
wear a'seatbelt-:- "i '-i '


The following are rec-
ommendations from the
Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT) and National
Highway Traffic Safety
Association or NHTSA and
car seat safety technicians.
Infants should be kept
rear facing until they are
1 year old and 20 pounds.

JOHNNY SMITH






LEVY COUNTY SHERIFF


Children over the age of 4
should be kept in a booster
seat until they can sit in the
seat. upright with their feet
flat on the floor. This is ap-
proximately 4'9".
Remember, children are
fit into car seats by height
and weight, not age. These
specifications can be found
on the car seat labels. It is
felt that car seats should
be replaced after six years
from the manufacture date.
And, car seats should be re-
placed after any accident.
Lastly, we have three
child passenger safety
technicians on staff who
have at least 40 hours of
training. They perform
car seat checks. We also
have a supply of seats on
hand. There is a donation
required if a new seat is
needed. Requests for a car
seat check can be made by
contacting Donna Roe here
at the office at 486-5111.

Quilters enjoy ancestral music
BY WINNELLE HORNE
CORRESPONDENT ,
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, May 25 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Summer is right on us and it seems we
go from cold to hot but everything is looking great outside.
It was great to have two of our new members back with us.
It seems like we don't know what each will bring and there
are so many who are sick. Our prayers go out to so many each
day.
We had a great day Sunday when the Genealogical Society
met and we got to hear music that was sung when the settlers
came over.
Music has always been a great part of our heritage. It has
changed over the years but to hear the old songs made us all
feel good. They meet the third Sunday from 2-4 p.m. and in-
vite anyone to come and enjoy learning history.
Greg and five boys were out Tuesday. They got a new tur-
bine up on the roof as the wind had blown so hard, it came off
and we had to have a new one. We also enjoyed having Sgt.
Gore out to see the museum.
We pray for all the members who are traveling and hope
they have a great trip.
Lunch was squash and green bean day: fried, casserole and
cooked. All was good, especially Betty's coconut pie. Twelve
members were present.
Winnelle Horne is the director of the Levy County Quilt
Museum.

The Bronson Middle-High School Baseball Awards dinner

For centuries, people have
been taking water from rivers.
and sending it to dry areas.
The Romans built aqueducts;
we have pipelines. Look at
Los Angeles. It is essentially
a desert and would be a small
town without water from the
Colorado River. So much
water is diverted that the
mighty river that carved the
Grand Canyon runs dry long
before it reaches the Sea of
Cortez. Could this happen to
the Suwannee?
Here in Florida,
development in the Tampa
megalopolis sucked its own
aquifer nearly dry, so builders
are looking north to the
Suwannee as a possible source
to water their new golf-course
developments.
Having learned a lesson
from previous mistakes, We
no longer allow rivers to be
drained dry. A minimum flow
level must be established and
adhered to. But that doesn't


mean our rivers are safe
from the depredations of
development. As we well
know, any tampering with
Mother Nature hurts the
ecosystem.
The Suwannee River
Water Management District
recently began the process
of final adoption of the
Minimum Flows and Levels
for the Lower Suwannee
River and Estuary, Manatee
Spring, Fanning Spring and
Little Fanning Spring.
A citizens group, Save
Our Suwannee, wants to see
that the Suwannee River and
its tributaries continue in
their natural pristine state.
The last 20 miles of the
Suwannee River as it meets
the Gulf of Mexico is one the
most pristine natural areas
in Florida, and Save our
Suwannee (SOS) wants to
keep it that way.
SOS has closely followed
the development of this new
Minimum Flows and Levels


Rule. SOS president Annette
Long and other members have
attended every public meeting
and workshop pertaining
to the new rule. They even
hired their own expert to help
interpret the statistical issues
and scientific facts with an
eye to the overall health of the
river and springs ecosystems.
There is already so much
water being withdrawn
that the natural systems
are currently under some
pressure. During the 1998-
2001 drought, some springs
on the Suwannee and Santa
Fe Rivers all but stopped
flowing. These rules are
being developed to prevent
the water shortages like those
that have happened in South
and Southwest Florida. In the
course of various workshops
with the District's staff and
experts it was clear that there
were not answers to some of
the difficult questions about
the real effects of the new
minimum flow rules during


drought and normal rainy
seasons.
A Florida Statute forbids
"significant harm," but
doesn't clearly define what
this term means. The
Governing Board that makes
water permitting decisions
claims that they will issue
permits only to a level that
will not cause "harm" to the
natural systems versus the
"significant harm" specified
in the new MFL rules. But
with no solid definition of
"harm" and "significant
harm" the rules are subject
to broad interpretation and
our river systems could be
harmed.
Unfortunately, the MFL
data used to establish these
standards was sparse and
inadequate. The District
was forced to create and/
or estimate some of the
historical flows on which
these new rules are based.
One of the SOS concerns
is that the manatee population


could be excluded from
Fanning Spring in the cold
winter months. It appears
that the animals would not
be able to enter the spring
as much as 14% of the time
during winter low flows.
Even short exposures to the
very cold river water could
cause manatee mortality.
Sadly, nobody can predict
the length of droughts and
low water periods or when
they will occur. Even with
the new rule, the spring could
actually fall far below the
2.71 feet NGVD specified.
Another concern is that the
swamps that line the Lower
Suwannee and Estuary will
be starved foi water in years
when the floods are minimal.
These wetlands must flood
periodically to stay healthy.
The river swamps along all the
tributaries of the Suwannee
are an important part of the
food chain for the fish and
wildlife that live in the Lower
Suwannee. When the river
floods, new food sources
will become available to the
wildlife in the river. Without
the periodic floods, these
animal populations would be
diminished and the wetlands
could be. replaced by drier


habitats.
The SRWMD has no plans
to directly monitor the health
of the various ecosystems
in the Lower Suwannee
and Estuary. Instead they
plan to use the statistical
models to predict "harm" and
"significant harm" to those
systems as each new water
permit is applied for.
This raises serious
concerns that the minimum
flows and levels set may not
protect the ecology of the
Lower Suwannee River and
Springs. To address this
problem, SOS is planning to
begin a volunteer monitoring
program. The group will
systematically survey the
most sensitive areas on the
river for changes. .SOS has
asked representatives from
all applicable State and
Federal Agencies for advice
and expertise to help develop
this program.
SOS is asking all those
who care about local rivers to
participate in our monitoring
program. If they are
interested, they can contact'

Mayoral recall petition enters final phase


S ,L .


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Yankeetown Town Clerk
Debra Stines presented Su-
pervisor of Elections Connie
Asbell with eight packets that
contain an estimated 131 vot-
ers' signatures on'the second
round of a petition seeking the
recall of Yankeetown Mayor
Joanne Johannesson.
There are 469 registered
voters in Yankeetown. There-
fore, if these 131 signatures
are verified' as being regis-
tered voters ofthai town, then
the committee seeking to re-
call Johannesson would have
found far more than the 15
percent minimal requirement
of registered voters.
The May 30 presentation
almost created a problem,
however, because Stines and
Deputy Clerk Laura Coyles
had both quit their jobs ef-
fective May 31. After learn-
ing about the problem of the
supervisor of elections need-
ing an acting clerk to accept
the verification of signatures,
Coyles said she would stay at
least another couple of weeks
to train a replacement.
Therefore there is a person
at Yankeetown Town Hall to
accept the certification that a
committee chaired by Maxine
Comer to recall Johannesson
has succeeded.
Comer also will receive
verification that enough sig-
natures are valid from As-
bell, given that is the case.
The acting clerk of the town
will give verification of those
signatures to Eighth Judicial
Circuit Chief Judge Freder-
ick Smith of Gainesville. The
town clerk must give the veri-
fication to the judge within
five days after she receives
it from Asbell. Mayor Johan-
nesson can resign within those
five days if she chooses.
If she does not resign, then
in not less than 30 days, nor
more than 60 days after Judge
Smith receives verification
of the signatures from the

on May 30.
town clerk, he must sched-
ule a special election. In the
special election, Asbell said,
there will be a "Yes" or "No"
choice for voters to decide
whether Johannesson should
be recalled. There also will
be candidates seeking the
mayor's job on the ballot for
that special election. Judge
Smith will set up the qualify-
ing times for candidates too,
Asbell said.
Johannesson can be quali-
fied and run in this race, As-
bell said. If she was recalled,
but won the election to be
mayor, then her first term
would have ended as the re-
sult of a recall but her new
term would begin.
If the voters recall Johan-
nesson and they choose an-
other person for mayor, then
Johannesson cannot run for
office for two years, accord-
ing to Florida elections law.
Other Recall Elections
Asbell has been the Levy
County Supervisor of Elec-
tions since 1992 following
Joy Smith. Asbell worked for
eight years in the elections of-
fice before taking its reins. In
the past 22 years or so, there
have been five or six recall


attempts. Some campaigns
for recall make it all the way,
Asbell said. Some officehold-
ers have resigned before the
recall process was complet-
ed. Some recall attempts have
fizzled out, Asbell said.
There was a recall move-
ment in Chiefland, Asbell
said, that met with stiff oppo-
sition from City Hall in 2002.
The supervisor of elections
mailed the verification after,
the first round of signatures,
she said. .
The mail was returned.
Then, Asbell tried to hand-de-
liver it to the city but the veri-
fication was refused. Then,
she left it on the desk of the
now former city manager,
who, then brought the verifi-
cation back to the supervisor
of elections.
Hence, the recall in
Chiefland fizzled out.
The recall of Chiefland
City Commissioner John Hart
was led by Jason Weathering-
ton, according to the minutes
of Jan. 28, 2002. At the same
meeting, Alice Monyei, who
has since become a city com-
missioner, asked for the res-
ignation of Kelby Andrews.-
Donnell Sanders asked for the
resignation of Commissioner
L.R. Hunter. Sherry Crews
asked for the resignation of
then Mayor Betty Walker,
who is still in office.
No one resigned. There
was no recall election in the
Chiefland saga.
Registered Voters
The key to power in Yan-
keetown and elsewhere in
Levy County. is the number
of registered voters who vote.
If all 131 people who sub-
mitted signatures for the re-
call of Johannesson voted to
recall her, but the other part
of the 469 registered voters
in Yankeetown voted to keep
the mayor, then Johannesson
would win that election.
As of April 19, there were
a total of 23,438 registered
voters in Levy County.

Lightning hits cause problems


By JEFF M. HARDISON
Staff Writer
The explosive power of lightning bolts electrified some
of the discussion at the May 22 Chiefland City Commission
meeting.
Bolts from the past and possible zaps in the future came un-
der consideration. Chiefland Fire Chief David Burnett said he
had spoken with Levy County Sheriff Johnny Smith about the
lack of radio service since early April as a result of a couple
of lightning strikes. The radio system has been lackluster as
a result of the two strikes that wiped out the Levy County
Sheriff's Department radio system. The chief told the com-
mission the sheriff is using the "Code Red" method, which
is when firefighters' telephones are called simultaneously to
dispatch them.
This causes a delay. For instance, a brushfire behind the
Holiday Inn Express a few weeks ago took an extra five min-
utes before firefighters were dispatched to extinguish it. Bur-
nett told the city commission about the added five to six min-
utes due to the "Code Red" method being used.
The CFD needs more radio service now, too, because it is
filling in as a first responder for medical calls in this area. Last
year there was a total of 392 calls for the CFD's help. As of
May 22, not even halfway through the year, there were 290
calls, according to records.
Burnett said the sheriff's department is moving forward
with fixing its radio communications problems and he men-
tioned his appreciation for the sheriff.
The city has had its share of problems from lightning bolts,
too.
The last lightning strike to hit Chiefland's electronics cost
the city's insurer $25,000, according to discussion' on May
22.
In an effort to prevent the need for repeated calls for the in-
surance company to pay for lightning damage, Chiefland City
Cormnissioners advertised for bids to ground the water tower
- where some radio antenna are placed.
After advertising in some daily Florida newspapers, only
one bid came in. There was another response, but no bid was
submitted. Teamwork Net of Colorado offered to create an
electrical engineering plan to ground the water tower for
$6,850.
On a motion by Commissioner Betty Walker, seconded
by Commissioner Alice Monyei, the commission voted 5-0
to approve the bid if the company can complete the project
within 30 days.
Walker said she wants the engineering firm to be finished
quickly because hurricane season starts June 1 (today).
In another matter, Burnett told the commission that he plans
to conduct a workshop with emergency personnel, including
Levy County Emergency Management Director Mark John-
son to start gathering, facts related ito the pending hrricane
season.
In a matter related to traffic and emergency help, Mayor Te-
resa Barron asked City Manager Rodney Russ to speak with
the county about removing a palm tree that blocks the view oh


Levy County Road 345 where it intersects with CR 341.
"It blocks your vision as you're looking to the east," Barron
said. "I talked to Mr. Drummond last year. He said we could
take that thing down."
Commissioner Teal Pomeroy said that if someone would
pour gasoline on the top of the tree, it would die relatively
quickly. Russ will be contacting the county to determine the
best.method to remove the pesky palm.


Involuntary annexation

unfolds in Chiefland

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The city of Chiefland wants to expand its boundaries by
annexing some 1,099.72 acres.
Going north from the northern city limits near the new
new Walgreens, the area goes up to and includes White
Construction. Going toward Winn-Dixie, the property on
the west side includes property owned by the Etheridge
family, the Mullett family and others. There is a large
wooded area on the east side of U.S. Highway 19 going
north and there is another 60 acres of woods to the north
that is included as well.
This annexation is involuntary, with the Chiefland City

Commission having voted last September to move for-
ward with the process. Results from a straw poll released
at the May 22 commission meeting showed 16 landown-
ers voted "Yes" and 14 landowners voted "No" to being
annexed into the city limits of Chiefland.
The next step will be a mail ballot referendum to the
registered voters in the area proposed for annexation, City
Attorney Norm Fugate explained.
The first reading of the referendum question will be at
the first Chiefland City Commission meeting on June 12.
The second reading will be at the June 26 meeting. Thirty
days after that, during the last.week in July, the referen-
dum will be mailed. A notice to all landowners was sent
during the week of May 22.
The city has been teetering back and forth with the is-
sue of whether to annex the land or to let it remain in the
county. The current city commission has noted its inten-
tion to move forward.
Other News
In other news from the May 22 Chiefland City Com-
mission meeting:

Attorney

clarifies


statement


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Williston City Attorney
Norm Fugate is also the
city attorney for Inglis and
Chiefland.
In regard to the arrest of
a convicted sex offender in
Chiefland who was arrested
for not reporting within
48 hours after he moved, a
story last week noted, "City
Attorney Norm Fugate has
said there is no place for sex
offenders to live in Chiefland
as a result of a recently
adopted ordinance."
Actually, he said
"probably" in regard to there
'being a total ban within the
city limits of Chiefland for
a place for sex offenders to
live. He said that to Williston
City Council members who
were considering changing
their city's ordinance about
sex offenders. They modeled
it after Gainesville rather than
Chiefland, after hearing from
Fugate that to add "school bus
stops" and "libraries" creates
total bans or pockets.
His actual words at the
Williston City Council
meeting came after he told
that city council that Chiefland
had adopted an ordinance,
which added school bus stops
and libraries to the list of
places near which a convicted
'sex offender cannot reside.
"In doing ,'that (adding
school bus stops), they
(Chiefland) probably did,
although nobody has looked
at the map, they probably
did take in the whole city (as
places where sex offenders
cannot reside)."
"On May 26, Fugate sent'an
demaiithifi-6ted,"lhave `dw'
no conclusion whatsoever
regarding whether Chiefland
or Williston or anyone else
is totally banning offenders.
That would require the
mapping of the municipality,
which I have not done, nor
have I seen such a map."
He added that he was
trying to tell the Williston
City Council members that
such ordinances as the one
created in Chiefland generally
result in either a total ban, or
isolated pockets.

names Kendrick

Legislator of the Year

State Rep. Will Kendrick
(D- Carrabelle) was presented
with the Legislator of the Year
Award by the Florida Greyhound
Association at their annual meeting
in Jacksonville on Sunday.
As sponsor of legislation !
this year for greyhound owners
and breeders, Kendrick was
recognized for his efforts to bring
the same fairness in purses and
awards to the greyhound industry
that is currently enjoyed in the
thoroughbred and jai alai industries. KENDRICK
Jack Cory, who represents the
Florida Greyhound Association said,
"We are proud of the endeavors put forth by Kendrick on
behalf of the greyhound industry. He has been a champion
for equal treatment under the law."
Prior to the beginning of the 2006 Session, Kendrick
toured greyhound farms in his district to gain insight
into the workings of and the importance of maintaining
an industry that provides a livelihood for the owners and
breeders that he represents in North Florida.

New


signs


Manatee Springs State Park
together with the Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion's Office of Ecosystem
Projects have provided park
visitors with. a new look and
new information.
With grant money from
Gov. Bush's Florida Springs
Initiative, interpretive panels
have been placed throughout
the park that should help park
guests understand the work-
ings of the Floridan Aqui-
fer system from which most
North Central Floridians get
water for domestic, recre-
ational and agricultural use.
The interpretive panels,
through text and graphics,
help park visitors piece to-
gether how a seemingly abun-
dant water supply creates an
environment that supports
a vital ecosystem including
both wildlife and human ac-
tivities.
Park Manager Sally Lieb
explained "A high priority
of the Springs Initiative is


inform park visitors


public education. These ex-
hibits were designed to help
our visitors understand the
connections between our ac-
tions, ground water and our
precious springs. We hope
our visitors will read these
exhibits and realize their own
personal connection with wa-
ter quality. Perhaps they will
even identify some actions
they can take to not only pro-
tect the springs, but also to

iCarolyn


protect their own drinking
water."
Park visitors will find many
of the panels located in areas
important to understanding
the complex system of under-
ground cave systems. Panels
discuss how water influences
plants and animals of the area
and the hundreds of genera-
tions of human habitation in
the lower Suwannee River
Basin.

I Hurricane
event of a hurricane, and who have family
or friends with whom they can stay in other
parts of Florida or other states should leave
before the mandatory evacuation is sounded,
Johnson said. The roads become clogged
from other counties' evacuees. Leave early, if
that is in the plans, he said.
Shelters are Last Resort
Hurricane shelters are places of last resort,
he said. For everyone considering a shelter,
remember to bring something to sleep on,
pillows, blankets and other materials that are
on the website list.
Superintendent of Schools Clifton Norris
and Assistant Superintendent of Schools Jeff
Davis have done an outstanding job of taking
over shelter responsibilities, Johnson said, as
a result of the American Red Cross shortages
of 2004.
For everyone who uses a shelter, Johnson
said, it is critical that they remember to
behave properly. The idea is to help out
and to make it as positive an experience for
everyone considering the circumstances. Be
considerate of others. Help others, he said.
The LCSO will man shelters for security.
Pet Care
Some people are not evacuating because of
pets but this is not always necessary, Johnson
said. He encourages people to contact the
Levy County Animal Control Department so
that it can provider shelter for their pets. Bring
crates, food, medicine and other materials for
pets, he said. Right now, the animal shelter is
accepting donations of animal crates.

Evacuation Orders
When mandatory evacuation orders are
given, follow those instructions, he said.
The "Code Red" system is a method to
contact every landline in Levy County to
order an evacuation and it can be based on
areas. The volunteer fire departments also
have performed route alerting, where they
went to every house in the whole county
within seven hours to tell people to evacuate,
Johnson said.
Levy County Emergency Management is
a direction and control center for operations
in the event of a disaster. Johnson meets
with School Superintendent Norris, Sheriff
Johnny Smith, LCSO Maj. Mike Johnson,
LCSO Capt. Chuck Bastak, Barbara Locke
of the Health Department and the county
commissioners in the "War Room." From
there, he makes decisions after receiving
input.
Emergency Management is involved with
four phases for disasters -- Preparedness,
Response, Recovery and Mitigation.
While Johnson and his team, and the
many other emergency responders in Levy
County are ready to do their jobs, it is still
up to each individual to have a plan before
a disaster hits the county. For instance,
have water, canned food, medical supplies,
insect repellant and the many other supplies
that will be.needed after the storm sweeps
through the area.

good to have on hand, visit is http://www.'

"I've always liked this
community," Lunsford said,
"and keeping traditions. In
the Year 2000, the Chiefland
Watermelon Festival was
recognized as one of Florida's
legacies."
In the Florida Division of
Tourism booklet, Chiefland is
listed as the place to visit in
June -just for its watermelon
festival, Lunsford said.
Keeping the tradition of
Florida agriculture strong has
brought the area recognition
from the state.
The 2006 Chiefland
Watermelon Princess Contest
starts the whole series of
events. It is scheduled to be
at the Tommy Usher Pine
Land Center, 506 S.W. Fourth
Ave., starting at 7 p.m.. on
June 2. The Princess Contest
has grown to be larger than
the Queen Contest, Lunsford
said.
The biggest day of the
festival will be Saturday
- June 3. It opens with
watermelons scheduled for
weigh-in from 6:30 to 10:30
a.m. The park, located on the
east side of U.S. 19 near the
police station, opens at 9 a.m.
for the general public.
The Rick Gordon Band
is set to entertain visitors,
beginning at 9 a.m.
A parade with queen
contestants included will
start at 10 a.m. Paula Sprague
is in charge of the parade this
year.
Introductions of national
and state watermelon queens
are scheduled to begin starting
at 11 a.m. Lunsford said.
Katie Grantham was
crowned as the 2006 Florida
Watermelon Queen on April
1 at the Florida Watermelon
Association's annual
convention in Sarasota. She
is the daughter of Dorothy


Continuedfromfront


Grantham from Fort Ogden.
Katie was also the 2005
Arcadia Watermelon Queen.
The 2006 National
Watermelon Queen is Candice
Fralish ofAriton, Ala. She is
the 22-year-old daughter of
Billy Fralish of Panama City.
Presentations of awards for
the Chiefland Watermelon
Contest are also set to be at
.11 a.m..
Chad "Cracker" Johnson
is scheduled to begin the
watermelon auction at 11:30
a.m. Johnson has been the
auctioneer for many years,
Lunsford said.
At noon, there will be .a
luncheon and interviews
with the queen contestants
conducted at the Chiefland
Woman's Club. This is not
open to the public.
The fun continues June
3 at the Tommy Usher Pine
Land Center with the 2006
Little King and Little Queen
Contest at 3 p.m.
