nee have nothing to worry
about.
Warren said Monday that
events such as the one expe-
rienced by Sistrunk are oc-
curring across the state.
The reason? The drought.
Whenever there is a period
of extreme drought, Warren
said, the likelihood of a natu-
ral die-off increases.
That's because the oxygen
demand in the river's sedi-
ment changes and depletes
the necessary breathing ele-
ment for the clams that bur-
row in it. With low levels of
dissolved oxygen, the mol-
lusks die.
"It's a natural process,"
Warren said.
The clams are Asian clams,
scientific name Corbiciia flu-
minea and are not indigenous
to Florida. They are an inva-
.sive species, Warren said, and
are quite prolific. One small
clam can produce up to 400
larvae a day, or 700,000 per
year.
Because they do multiply
rapidly, they compete with
native species for space, War-
ren said. From a biological
standpoint, a natural die-off
is not a bad thing, he said.
Warren's team at the Uni-
versity witnessed a similar
massive die-off on the St.
John's River the first week of
May.

MANAGING EDITOR
When Rodney Sistrunk
stood on his dock last week
and saw little white specks
floating on top of his beloved
Suwannee River, he thought
someone had poured their
butterbeans into the water.
But when he leaned down
for closer examination, he
realized it wasn't lima beans
floating down the river, but
hundreds, maybe thousands,
of river clams that had been
popped from their shells.
By that evening, there was
no doubt as the decomposing
mollusks began offending the
nose.
Sistrunk, who now lives
full-time on the river, said
before he moved from Cross
City, he remembered a simi-
lar instance where dead clams
floated down stream. He said
he couldn't remember if any-
thing .was ever cited as the
cause of the die-out.
Last week, Sistrunk
scooped scores of the little
creatures from the water and
pondered if their deaths had
anything to do with the blue
gill that floated belly up near
the shore line.
"I don't want to eat any
fish out of the river," Sistrunk
said.
But Gary L. Warren, aquat-
ic ecologist at the University
of Florida, believes Sistrunk

Jury finds Landon guilty on 17 counts

Former Williston councilman to be sentenced July 12


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
A six-member jury found
former Williston Town
Councilman Justii Lee
Landon, 21, guilty of 17
of the 20 counts of sexual
crimes involving a 14-year-
old girl. The state accused
him of committing the crimes


when he was 19.
The jury deliberated 'all
morning and. halfway into
the afternoon on June 1 after
sitting through more than
a week of trial. The jurors
gave Circuit Court Judge
Robert Cates a detailed list of
convictions, including five of
the 17 counts that were lesser


included offenses.
Cates read the ruling for
each count, each dealing with
specific actions at particular
periods of time within an
eight-month span between
late 2003 and late in the
summer of 2004.
Jurors found Landon guilty
of 10 counts of lewd or


lascivious battery upon a child
younger than 16, with several
of those counts including the
notation that he had "sexual
contact" with her in a couple
of different manners.
Landon was found guilty
of two counts of attempted
lewd or lascivious battery
upon a child younger than


16, which is a lesser included
offense, and three counts of
unnatural and lascivious acts
upon a child, also a lesser
included offense in contrast
with the battery charge.
He was found guilty of
interference with the custody

There was a trail of tears from
Chiefland High School to the Levy
County School Board's administra-
tive building in Bronson on June 6
as scores of people came t6 protest
a recent personnel decision by the-
county administration.
Levy County Superintendent of
Schools Clifton Norris fired Chief-
land High School Head Football Coach HOL1
Sam Holland from his coaching position
after a meeting on May 31.
The superintendent said he wanted to "Move
forward in a positive direction. This is in the
best interest of the students, the school and the
community," he added that day.
The superintendent gave no other reasons for
the termination, although he spoke well of the
coach.
"Sam Holland is a good man," Norris said. "I
appreciate all of the contributions he has given
to our school district."
There has been no new coach selected for
CHS yet, Norris said, and the district's person-
nel department will advertise for one. CHS's

new principal Pam Asbell will
be involved in the selection pro-
cess, Norris said.
Holland was surprised by the
move. He has been a coach for 13
years. He teaches physical educa-
tion at CHS too.
"This is out of the blue," Hol-
land said.
With the new coach coming
to CHS, Holland would not be
welcome as a physical education


AND


teacher or a coach there either, Hol-
land said Norris told him. There are op-
portunities at other schools in the district,
Holland said that Norris told him. They
have not reached a decision on where or
what Holland will coach or teach.
"It's just a shame that this took place
right now," Holland said, "when there's
no other head coaching spots open."
At the meeting last Tuesday night, the
school district's leaders listened for two
and a half hours as person after person
gave testimony to how Holland was a fine

RODNEY SISTRUNK examines a dead fish that floated to the edge of the Su-
wannee River last Thursday. Sistrunk and his neighbors were astonished to see
thousands of river clams, sand burrowers, floating down the river. The clams,
left bottom, pop their shells when gases form in the decomposition stage, leav-
ing the inside of the bivalve (top left) to float. Biologists from the University of
Florida believe the die-out is a natural process and not toxic waste related.

Levy County farmers and
residents in the Suwannee
River Water Management
District (SRWMD) lead
an enviable existence in
contrast with the residents
and farmers in the western
end of the county, which
is in the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
(SWFWMD).
Levy County has a total
1,133 square miles. Of
those, 770 square miles
are in the Suwannee River
Water Management District
and 363 square miles are in
SWFWMD, according to
officials at the SRWMD.
People in the SWFWMD
area are under year-round
mandatory water restrictions
and have been since
September of 2003. People
in the Suwannee River Water
Management District still see
no mandatory restrictions
imposed on(them even after
the most recent drought.
Both water management
districts include about 15
counties. SRWMD includes
most of Levy County.
SWFWMD, which covers
part of eastern Levy County
also includes Pinellas,
Sarasota, Hillsborough,
Pasco and other densely
populated coastal counties:
Suwannee River Water
Management District does
not include any extremely
densely populated cities.
There are no mandatory water
restrictions in the SRWMD,
according to Cindy Johnson,
communication coordinator.
This district encourages
voluntary conservation,'
Johnson said. The biggest
water consumers in the
Suwannee River Water
Management District are the
farmers. Since 1998 or,1999,;
Johnson said, the SRWMD
hasbeenworkingwithfarmers
to use the best management
practices through a program
known as the Suwannee
River Partnership. The
partnership includes 24
agencies and groups such as
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection,
the Florida Division of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, the Farm Bureau
and the Florida Dairy Farmers

A SPRINKLER covers trees with water May 31 to
make them grow in the Levy County area regulated
by the Suwannee River Water Management District.
If this crop existed in the Southwest Florida Water
Management District part of Levy County, then the
farmer would be violating the SWFWMD year-round
mandatory water restrictions which are much more
stringent.


Association, Johnson said.
Farmers who participate
in the Suwannee River
Partnership enjoy some cost
sharing benefits such as
with the cost of retrofitting
irrigation systems, Johnson
said.
"We focus our attention
on agriculture," she said,
"where some districts focus
their attention on residential
users."
Unlike the Suwannee River
Water Management District,
the Southwest Florida Water
Management District covers
an area that is thick with
people. One-quarter of the
entire population of Florida
is within SWFWMD. There
are five water management
districts. If these districts
were divided equally by
population, SWFWMD
would have 20 percent
instead of 25 percent of the
state's populace. Districts are
political subdivisions based
on land.
SWFWMD's center
in Brooksville is a very
busy office. For instance,
a spokeswoman in the
communication department
of SWFWMD was unable
to state its mandatory water
restrictions for Levy County.
She said to call the Levy
County Sheriff's Office to
discover the water restrictions
here. A person in the water
restrictions department of
SWFWMD was able to
answer the questions.
Unlike the Levy County
people who live in the


SRWMD who are free of
mandatory water restrictions,
the Levy County residents
who live in SWFWMD have
had mandatory year-round
water restrictions for all
residential and agricultural
uses since September of2003,
according to a spokeswoman
in the SWFWMD Regulation
Department.
Levy County property
owners who wonder if they
are in the Suwannee River
Water Management District
or the Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
need only look at their annual
ad valorem property tax bill.
Each water management
district has the power to
impose ad valorem property
taxes.
People in Levy County
who are in the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District are only allowed to
water two days a week. Even
numbered addresses can water
on Tuesday and Saturdays.
Odd numbered addresses
can water on Wednesdays
and Sundays. The watering
can occur before 10 a.m. and
after 4 p.m.
The SWFWMD site lists
the Levy County Sheriff's
Office as the number to call
for information about' its
water restrictions even
though SWFWMD is the
regulatory agency, and even
though the water management
district levies taxes for its
purposes, which includes
sharing information about its
restrictions.


County makes prescription 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 oni 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."

Mayor delays decision on chamber request


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Bronson Chamber of
Commerce President Bob
Levesque tried to persuade
the Bronson Town Council
to approve his request forthe
Levy County Fair to be at
the 72-acre Bronson Athletic
Park, but Mayor Beatrice
Mongo said he is going to
have to wait.
Levesque's June 5 request
was not on the agenda but
council listened anyway. He
said the chamber wants the fair
to be on municipal property to
improve the odds ofthe Florida
Department of Agriculture
placing permanent structures
somewhere for the county fair.
The mayor said she needed to
check about the uses for the
park because it was built with
grant funds.
Bronson Town Councilman
Aaron Edmondson said he
wanted to see copies of the
liability insurance Levesque
said the chamber had for its
recent music festival. The
mayor asked Levesque about
the music festival's vendors
who keep. calling the city
looking for money owed them
by the chamber.
Levesque said the chamber
went into the red, but it is
holding fund-raisers to pay
off its debts. The matter will
be on the council's agenda
next month. The Levy County
Fair is tentatively slated to be
Nov. 16-19.
Among the other matters
to be carried to the next
monthly meeting is the idea
of increasing the deposit for
water connections. The town
will consider increasing
deposits from $40 to $80.
Town Clerk Donna Conquest
said the town is getting stuck
with a lot of unpaid bills by.

Levy County School
Board Connection
While the new Bronson
High School is ready to turn
on its switch to be served by
Bronson water and sewer, the
administrative building of the
Levy County School Board is
still not connected.
Bronson Public Works
Director Mickey Beauchamp
said the town staff has three
people doing what five
have done before, and the
connection to the school
administration building is
complex. It involves 503 feet
of pipe and four major bends
that are going to go on a 1
percent decline for gravity
feed from the building to the
city wastewater treatment
facility.
The town staff, Beauchamp


said, lacks the expertise to
complete this project with a
safe level of surety. He wants
to hire a construction plumber
to oversee the project.
Mongo said she will check
with the city engineer. She
wants to make sure the city
workers are not just trying to
get out of work, she said after
the June 5 meeting.

Wellhess Workout Trails
The Levy County Health
Department has offered the
town an opportunity to build
two workout trails near the
Health Department, which is
on Main Street. These trails
would be, built free using
funds from the state.
Beauchamp asked about
putting the trails closer to the
park, because that is where
most people take their walks
for exercise. The mayor
o:nt ',' '-f P llJ'


will confer with the Health
Department.
CDBG
Progress on seeking a new
Community Development
Block Grant is at a standstill.
The mayor had invited Dick
Edwards to .speak about
the CDBG, but he missed
the June 5 meeting. At a
conference in Gainesville
recently, Mongo learned that

Chiefland sinkhole still causing problems
BY JEFFM. HARDISON said. Russ believes it must be children who have done this


STAFF WRITER
A sinkhole that goes underneath 10t Terrace in Chiefland,
behind the farm supply store continues causing problems for
the city commission.
Chiefland City Manager Rodney Russ said at the May
22 meeting that people along the street did not give him a
favorable answer about them taking possession of the property
from the city. Since the residents do not want to accept the
property as their own, the city must reconsider how it is going
to deal with the sinkhole.
City Commissioner Teal Pomeroy said he saw a Florida
Department of Transportation project under U.S. Highway 27
near Melba Tillis's farm, where the DOT used a slurry type
of concrete to fill a hole. He suggested that the city remove
the old debris that is in the sinkhole and refill it with this
liquid concrete that will reach into any fingers the sinkhole
has created.
There is a 163-foot section of the road that needs to be
repaved after the hole is filled, Russ said. This hole is not
stable, the city manager added. It is growing. Some foolish
people have moved barricades aside to drive on the road, he

because no rational adult would drive across an area that has
been barricaded because it is unsafe.
Chiefland Fire Chief David Burnett confirmed that a city
firetruck has had to be pulled from the sinkhole in the past.
The caverns go toward Chiefland Farm Supply, Burnett said.
Burnett recommended that the city hire the engineer who
used ground penetrating radar and repaired the sinkhole in
Strickland Park.
Pomeroy said the DOT just puts concrete in sinkholes.
When the DOT sees a hole, it fills it, Pomeroy said.
City Attorney Norm Fugate recommended that the city use
an engineer who is beholden to the city to look at the sinkhole.
By using a competent professional, Fugate said, it reduces the
liability of the city in case a person should suffer injury as a
result of something happening at the sinkhole. City Engineer
Lee Mills was mentioned as the engineer to use to decide how
to fill the hole.
Once it is stabilized, the city leaders may ask the county
about some help paving the street, but no firm action regarding
the sinkhole was voted upon at the May 22 meeting.

Chiefland plans for EAR

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The comprehensive land-use management plan for
development in Chiefland is due for its seven-year review,
which is known as the Evaluation and Appraisal Report or,
EAR.
Levy County is a bit farther along in its process in regard to
the county comprehensive plan.
Withlacoochee Regional Planning 'Council Planning
Director Bruce Day told Chiefland City Commissioners on
May 22 that he will bring the commission more details about
the cost of the EAR in the future. Budgeting about $20,000
seems to be an underlying idea right now but Day said it
will depend on how many factors are required for the city to
consider. Brooksville and Inverness were completed recently,
Djr said,'afit they ient a little over the $20,000 figure but
those cities are about three times bigger than Chiefland. The
EAR process is expected to start in"the summer.
SWith this being a seven-year requirement, the city council
is considering spreading the cost over two years.
Day said the WRPC is headed by a council comprised of .
33 individuals. The council is two-thirds elected officials and
one third appointed by the governor. It covers Levy, Marion,
Citrus, Sumter and Hernando counties, he said. Although
it has no power to force counties to perform acts, it makes
recommendations to the Florida Department of Community
Affairs concerning comprehensive land management rulings
by the DCA. The DCA funds the WRPC for the most part.
Voluntary Annexation
In a matter related to the development in Chiefland, the
commission, on a motion by Commissioner Alice Monyei
and seconded by Teal Pomeroy, unanimously approved the
second reading of a voluntary annexation into the city by LSG
Land LLC.
The developers plan to build townhouses for sale to private
individuals. Robert Berger, Gary Lee and Leon Eligon
voluntarily annexed land into the city to help reduce the
bother of the city forcing them to do so. The annexed land is
a strip near Strickland Park, running along the Nature Coast
State Trail.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


YOUR VIEW
i
Former opponent lauds Parker
To the editor:
I would like to make a statement regarding the utility pick
up truck that crashed and rolled over and pinned the driver
under the truck May 23 in Bronson.
The news story stated that Commissioner Tony Parker
responded with a pay loader and was able to hook a chain to
the truck and lift with the pay loader so that a rescue team
could remove the victim from under the truck and administer
first aid and carry the victim to the hospital. It was reported
that the victim was in "good" condition. My view is,
perhaps he was saved from permanent injury or maybe death
if it was not for the quick response from Commissioner
Parker.
As many citizens may know, I was a candidate who was
Commissioner Parker's opponent in the years 2000 and 2004
and sometimes do not agree with Commissioner Parker's
political views, but, I must applaud the commissioner for
his heroic act and hope that the county commission would
recognize his heroic act and sign a certificate of appreciation
or other award.
Dave Bibby

Says law wasn't broken
To the editor:
I read Jeff Hardison's.article accusing the Levy Planning
Commissioners of discussing an issue "out of the sunshine."
I was present at the meeting in question and heard most of
what was discussed. Mr. Hardison is incorrect in accusing
the commissioners of a Sunshine violation.
Since he is new to Levy County, what Mr. Hardison may
not realize is that there have been at least five meetings
and workshops to discuss the Evaluation Appraisal Report
(EAR) as part of the state of Florida statutory process.
The planning commission has been working on this for
months. In these meetings and workshops, all of the issues
that were talked about prior to the beginning of the May 23
meeting were discussed on the record and were recorded by
the Planning Department.
From where I was sitting, the board members were
merely referring to what had already been discussed at other
meetings that WERE part of the public record and therefore
there was no violation of the rules.

History in the cemetery
There are many historic stories from the Chiefland
Cemetery. At least two gravesites had Confederaie fiags next
to them on May 31, perhaps as part of the Memorial Day
remembrances at the cemetery from the day before.
"Lead Kindly Lord" was at the top of the tombstone of
John D. Sheppard. Born Nov. 24, 1838. Sheppard died Dec.
24, 1908. His marker shows that he was a sergeant in the
Confederate States Army, Company G, 15th Regiment in the
Alabama infantry.
Samuel W. Hudson had a Confederate flag next to his
gravesite too. He was born Aug. 19, 1845, and died Jan. 31,
1929.
"An Honest Man's The Noblest Work of God," is
etched on Hudsori's tombstone. He was a member of
the Freemasons, according to the symbol etched on his
gravestone.
Hudson was born in Nassau County, Florida, but his
family was among the founding families of Chiefland,
according to Biographical Rosters of Florida's Confederate
and Union Soldiers 1861-1865, and Tillman-Zetrouer &
Allied Families. He married Nancy Fleming. Georgia Ann
Hudson was their daughter.
Hudson was in the First Florida Cow Cavalry, according
to Biographical Rosters of Florida's Confederate and Union
Soldiers 1861-1865. That group was commonly called the
Cattle Guard Battalion. It was organized in 1864 to defend
Florida's cattle herds from Union raiders. Capt. James
McKay, a Confederate commissary officer, had requested
the cavalry unit to protect the herds from deserters and from
Union troops who had occupied Fort Myers the previous
January. Compiled by Jeff M Hardison

had a few minutes
before church this
Sunday so I moseyed
over to the children's
class. I wasn't scheduled
to teach them, but I always
liked to tousle a few mop
tops before the service.
About that time a visitor
came through the back door,
looking around, sort of wary,
like they tend to be. Eager to
put him at ease I stuck out
a hand and said cheerfully,
"Good morning, my name's
Guy." Well, he threw back
against the wall in a fright.
His eyeballs popped out on
stems like an old crawfish.
(I didn't know it, but he
thought I had said, "Good
morning, my name's GOD!"
It must've been my southern
drawl.)
S"What?" he gasped and&,
swallowed hard.
"I'm Guy," I repeated,
"I'm glad you came today."
A bead of sweat popped
up on his forehead, "Ya ya
ya you're God?" he gulped.
I guess he was hoping
for someofie a little more
impressive. By now my eyes
were bugging, too.
After we got that
all straightened out, I
skedaddled over to join the
praise team in the prayer
room. A fellow can only
take so much meeting and
greeting for one day! I sat
down and began to rattle
off my prayers silently to
the Lord, going through
my regular list like a kid in
Santa's lap. When I got to
the part about how I wanted
Him to use me, a still small
voice rose up in me and
asked, "Well, have you
figured it out yet? Are you
Guy or God?" I was nearly
floored.
"Surely you know my
heart Lord." I prayed, but I
couldn't get it off my mind.

life inch me back into a place
where I am more concerned
with building my own
kingdom than His? I began
to examine myself and I
asked God to forgive me if I
had lost my focus.
The service started and
we came. out to play the first
song. I looked at my list and
couldn't believe my eyes.
We would be singing the
song, "You Are God". I just
laughed and whispered, "You
sure are! I guess you could
say I sang it with conviction
that morning. The Lord sure
has a way of driving His
points across.
It's easy to lose focus
nowadays. We live in such
a fast food society. Have
it your way! Just do it! No
interest, no.payments until
you're over your head! It's
like we are constantly being
bombarded by the devil's
24hr "Sell Your Soul"
shopping infomercial, "Get
your genuine imitation faux
costume jewelry ball and
chain now before they're all
gone!" We can become so
mesmerized by the world's
sales pitch that we never
take the time to cultivate
the eternal pearl of a great
price that God wants to
grow within us. Eventually
we find ourselves cluttered,
unfulfilled, unproductive,
and taking others down with
us. We become as fools
chasing a vapor. If God.
is your co-pilot I would
seriously suggest switching


seats.
God is
the giver of
every good
Sand perfect
gift. He
wants so
desperately
for His
children to


enjoy them.
In the 28th
Chapter of Deuteronomy
the Bible lists many of His
blessings. He promises
they will overtake us if we
will listen and obey Him.
But did you notice He said
"overtake"? It means to
catch up with. How can
something overtake you if
you are chasing it? Jesus
taught, But more than
anything else, put God's
work sf rstgI do wht ; .g ,
he wants. Then the other ir
things will be yours as well.
Matthew 6:33 CEV.
God's promises are yes
and amen for those who
keep their eye on the prize,
the high calling of God in
Christ Jesus. Only in seeking
the Lord and His will for
our lives will we find the
true fulfillment that our
hearts are longing for. In
chasing the blessing instead
of the Blesser we miss our
whole purpose of our life,
and the best gift of all, a
real relationship with Jesus.
Don't you dare trade your
birthright for a bowl of soup
like Esau. Don't walk away
sad like the rich young ruler.
But anyway, I'm thinking
about changing my name
to Purvis. I don't need
any more confusion in my
life.

What May Day

means to me
BY D.T. PENDLETON
GUEST COLUMNIST

used to love the
ambiguous essay,
WHAT
MEANS TO ME. I have
been thinking about this
since recent political waters
have been buzzing about
May Day being a communist
holiday.
I celebrated May Day with
my mom. It was fun. It was
heartwarming. It was not
communist.
Mother had a glorious
hybrid tea rose garden. The
garden came with the house.
Mother knew nothing about
roses when we moved in but
she learned. What I know
about roses today, I learned
from her.
Her garden was also filled
with daylilies and gerbera
daisies. A riot of color rising
out of the pine bark mulch.
We would weed the garden
in silent companionship. We
would fill mop buckets with
weeds and dump the buckets
into large-mouth garbage
bags. For that moment, we
weren't mother and daughter,
we were gardeners. Later,
Daddy would drag the bags
to the curb when he got
home.
We loved May Day. All
year we saved the cans
mandarin oranges came in.
I love mandarin oranges
but I loved them most when
Mother would put them in
Jell-00 and top it with Cool-
Whip .
As May Day approached,
we would spread newspaper
out on the driveway. The
cahs were neatly lined up on
the newspaper. Daddy had-
punched a hole on either side
of the top of the can with a
Phillips head screwdriver
already.
We spray painted the cans
in pink or white. Two coats,
Daddy said. When the paint
was dry, we would run pretty
ribbon, or sometimes left-
over strips of fabric, through
the holes for the handle.
The next day was May
Day. I filled the cans with
water and put them on the
metal beverage tray. Mother
would get her basket, the one
she collected eggs in as a
child, and we would head for
the rose garden.
We would fill the painted
cans with flowers. If it was
in bloom, it went in the cans.
We made as many bouquets
as we had cans. Mother
would drive through the
neighborhood. I would drop
the bouquets off at the front
door, ring the doorbell and
run for the car.
We never left a note, and
I never wondered if the
ladies we chose to receive
the bouquets actually wanted
them. I didn't care; I got to
spend the day with mother. It
was our day together.

unday, June 4, 2006,
7 p.m. Hi! Well to
make a long story
short, let me say no, I did not
make it to church today, but I
just wasn't up tb it.
I tried, but I was too slow
and it was 10 a.m. before I
.was ready to leave the house.
So I knew I might as well
stay home. Since I go to the
church in Chiefland, I knew
I couldn't make it, but I do
think God will forgive this
time, as long as I don't make
it a habit, and I won't.
Monday, 4 a.m. Good
morning, got up and made
coffee and had a cup and
now I'm ready to face

another day in the life of
Miss Honey and the little


boys (dogs) who love me,
and yes, I love them, too.
Misty is

He just came and checked

So you see, I really am
surrounded by puppy love
and that, my friend, is true
love, even though they did


chew up one of my shoes.
Spank him? No, I did not,
after all Jack and Dianne
threw away more than that
and I still love them, but I
won't ever forget. If you
can't trust your kids, who
can you trust? Yes, my little
dogs can be trusted! Nuff
said.
I think I will bake some
pies and a cake today and
make some fudge. Sound
good? Yes, it is good, also
fattening, but just more to
love. Ha!

Four Senior Sleuths'start in Levy County


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist opened a branch of
Seniors versus Crime in Levy County recently in cooperation
with Sheriff Johnny Smith and Chiefland Police Chief Robert
Douglas, and there are already four volunteers.
Crist is continuing a program
called Seniors vs. Crime Project that
former Florida Attorney Gen. Bob
Butterworth started in 1989. This unit
allows seniors to become involved in
not only their own protection, but
also that of their fellow citizens, as
is noted on the state's website for the
group: www.seniorsvscrimes.com
When the project was initiated,
its purpose was twofold. It offers
crime prevention seminars to Florida's elderly and it provides
comprehensive training for law enforcement officers and
other criminal justice practitioners to understand how the
aging population impacts the role of police and other criminal
justice professionals, according to information on the state's
website.
The project was initially activated in.five counties on
the East Coast with approximately 300 volunteers. As law
enforcement became more involved in presenting crime
prevention programs to seniors, the project grew. Volunteers,
are now called Senior Sleuths and are active in assisting law
enforcement agencies. Sleuths "act as the eyes and ears of
the Attorney General's Office by reporting on scams and
conducting surveys as requested," according to information
on the state's website.
These crime fighters are responsible for recovering more


than $4 million for seniors who were the victims of con artists,
according to information released by the state. The volunteers
currently number in excess of 3,000 people.
"Unethical businesses and individuals may believe that
their senior target is helpless when, in fact, these citizens may
be working for the Attorney General," Crist
noted. "I am proud to be a partner with these.
outstanding citizens. Please give the Seniors
vs. Crime Project a chance to help with a
consumer related complaint by calling 1-
800-203-3099."
David J. Touch, a regional director for
the program, is happy with the start of the
program in Levy County. The first four
% volunteers have not completed their first five-,
hour basic class that teaches the boundaries
of whatthey are allowed to do. However, Touch anticipates
the training to be complete soon.
After that foundation, the volunteers will receive mandatory
continuing education credits from the sheriff's staff, as well
as from assistant state attorneys and from law enforcement
professionals in various other agencies such as the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the
Florida Department of Business and Professional Licensing,
Touch said.
To join, senior volunteers need only contact the Chiefland
Police Department or the Levy County Sheriff's Office.
"I am extremely grateful to Levy County Sheriff Johnny
Smith and Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas for their
support and for their understanding the importance this
project has for the people of Levy County," Touch said. "I
also look forward to working with the other police chiefs in
the other municipalities of Levy County."


Marshals arrest 'Speedy' Raulerson and son


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
A 42-year-old man who
was a fugitive from the Levy
County Sheriff's Office and
a major fugitive from the
U.S. Marshals Service since
November 2005 was captured
in.Palatka June 1, according
to U.S. Deputy Marshal John
Blount.
Kenneth Scott "Speedy"
Raulerson was arrested on
two counts of armed bank
robbery out of Suwannee
County y I Putnam, County
Sheriff's deputies.
Raulerson was busted, on
a warrant from the Florida
Department of Corrections
for violation of supervised
probation, too, after being
convicted for robbery with a
deadly weapon and extortion
in Levy County.
He was also wanted in

Levy County for failing to
appear in court on a charge
of being a principle to armed
robbery. He has been on the
run since at least 1997 when
he stopped reporting to his
probation officer.
His son, Justin Raulerson,
was with him and was arrested
on an outstanding warrant for
violation of probation.
The U.S. Marshals Service
adopted the case at the
request of the Levy County
Sheriff's Office, Blount said.
Raulerson had eluded officers
on foot and by vehicle. The
man was well-aquainted with
the woods in Gulf Hammock
and the Inglis-Yankeetown
area, Blount said.
Raulerson met with a
female reporter from a


newspaper that serves the
Inglis area while he was
on the run. He gave her an
interview that helped spark a
more intensive search for him.
than if he had not challenged
law enforcers.
Raulerson declared war
on law enforcement officers,
Blount said, in his interview
with the reporter. The fugitive
repeatedly said he would
shoot lawmen or dogs that
hunted him.
Blount labeled Raulerson
as a major fugitive for the
U.S.: Marshals Service.
Deputy Marshals from
Gainesville and Jacksonville,
as well as Florida Department
of Law Enforcement agents,
members of the LCSO and
other agencies joined forces
to catch this man.
"Like the turtle who always
wins the race," Blount said,
"nothing would stop me from
getting this guy."
The deputy marshal who led
the hunt for Raulerson tagged
him as being a significant
threat to peace officers.
"This guy was one bad
dude," Blount said. "No law
enforcement officer was safe
with him riding around out
there."
Marshals just missed
Raulerson six to eight years
ago in Putnam County, said
Putnam County Sheriff's
Office Narcotics Lead
Investigator John Merchant.
The PCSO worked with
the federal agents to set up a
house where Raulerson was
invited to come as part of a
trap.
"The marshals had all of


the pieces to the puzzle,"
Merchant said. "We just
provided them with a platform
to bring it all together."
Merchant said that
considering Raulerson's
previous statements about
wanting to kill officers who
may come to arrest him, the
team wanted to take custody
of the fugitive in a more
controlled environment.
That's why everyone set up
the arrest at a vacant house
that.was used as a trap, rather
than where Raulerson lived.
.The-suspect was bitten by
a canine officer when he tried
to escape. His son sustained
dog bites, too. Once the older
Raulerson was in custody, he
was very talkative, Merchant
said.
The PCSO received written
consent from the suspect
to search his house at '103
Gaylord St., Interlachen. They
found 140 mature marijuana
plants, mostly inside under
grow lights with a few
outside.
The value of those plants
is about $140,000, Merchant
said. No guns were found by
agents of the U.S. Alcohol
Tobacco and Firearms agency,
Merchant said.
Putnam County deputies
found a shirt and jacket,
which both had patches that
showed Raulerson could have.
used them to disguise himself
as a worker for the Florida
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services,
Division of Forestry.
Raulerson told Merchant
information about the armed
bank robbery in Suwannee


FDLE: Seven sexual predators live in Levy


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Of the 115 sexual offenders and sexual
predators in Levy County, seven of them are
sexual predators, according to information
from the Florida Department of Law Enforce-
ment.
At the FDLE website, which lists this type
of felon, http://www3.fdle.state.fl.us/sopu,
seven of the 115 are sexual predators. They
are designated differently than the sexual of-
fenders.
The essential difference between the two is
that the predator uses violence or the threat
of violence to perform a sexual act with an
underage minor or a handicapped person who
is not willing to perform such an act.
Both sexual offenders and predators have
violated Florida laws related to minors and
others. Criminals with this designation are


believed to be predisposed and inclined to
repeat this type of offense. As a result, they
are kept on a list that is open to public inspec-
tion. They must register'with the state when-
ever they move. They must not live within
1,000 feet (about one city block) of schools,
playgrounds, daycare centers, parks and the
like, as a matter of state law. Some cities and
towns have increased the number to 2,500
feet, and Chiefland has added "libraries" and
"school bus stops" to those places near where
the sexual offenders and predators must not
reside.
The seven predators listed by the FDLE in
Levy County are Paula Jean Lewis and Or-

good place for him the

As for the cultivating

said Putnam County will
pass those felonies from the
Seventh Judicial Circuit,
where he is now, to either the
Third Judicial Circuit, which
is Suwannee County, or to
the Eighth Judicial Circiuit,
which includes Levy County,
depending on which agency
tries him first.
Raulerson is currently
being held without bond.
The U.S. Marshals Service

lead agency for conducting
investigations involving:
escaped federal prisoners,
probation, parole and bond
defaultviolators, and fugitives
based on warrants generated
during drug investigations.
Marshals have the authority
to make an arrest on all

Williston asks for money to strengthen communications


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
Williston's mayor petitioned the Levy County Board of
Commissioners Tuesday for funds it collects on traffic cita-
tions.
Mayor Gerald Hethcoat said the city, which dispatches
24/7, needs new consoles to bolster its communication system
and the city doesn't have the $45,000 it will cost.
Williston wants to mirror what the sheriff's department
uses so it can serve as backup in the event the sheriff's depart-


ment system goes down.
Hethcoat asked the commissioners to change the county or-
dinance to allow a percentage--maybe 75 percent--of traffic
citations to come back to the city from the communications
fund.
"If you do it for one, you'll have to do it for all (cities),"
Commissioner Sammy Yearty said, adding if the county
agrees, it will defeat the purpose of the ordinance which was
designed to benefit all of Levy County.
Commissioner Danny Stevens supported Hethcoat's idea,


Yankeetown voters win second recall effort


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
There were 121 registered
Yankeetown voters'
signatures confirmed by
Levy County Supervisor of
Elections Connie Asbell in
the second round of petitions
for the recall of Mayor Joanne
Johannesson.
This exceeds the 15 percent
of registered Yankeetown
voters' signatures, which'
was required after the mayor
gave her response to the first
petition seeking her recall.
The mayor now has five
days to resign. If she chooses
against resignation, the chief
circuit court judge for the
Eighth Judicial Circuit will
S designate the qualifying time
for candidates who want
to run for Johannesson's
position.
The recall election will
be on the same date as the
election of the new mayor.
Johannesson may run for the
post from which she may be
recalled.
The recall election will
include a "Yes" or "No" vote
option, given that the current
mayor does not resign within
the time allotted for that.
The mayor is in Alaska until
"about June 15" if she sticks
to the agenda she had planned


as of May 26.
Vice Mayor Mary
Pate attempted to hold a
Yankeetown Town Council
meeting on June 5, but just
as happened on May 26,
there was no quorum. There
are currently only three town
council members who can
meet, and that is the minimum
for a -quorum. Therefore, if
any town council member


fails to appear for a regular or
special meeting, there is no
quorum and no meeting.
As of June 6, there is no
town attorney or town clerk
either. Deputy Clerk Laura
Coyle, who had planned on
resigning on May 31 with
former Town Clerk Debra
Stines, has remained at least
long enough to receive the
notice from the supervisor of


elections. On June 6, she said
she turned in her final notice
to make June 15 her last day.
As of that Tuesday
afternoon, no person has
been hired to be the new town
clerk at least in part due to
the town council failing to
have enough people showing
up at the same time to have a
quorum.

saying it would provide backup and be a win-win for every-
one concerned. He wasn't sure about the percentage, but Het-
hcoat said he had thrown out the number as an example that
Williston wasn't asking for all of the $12.50 that is collected.,
Yearty said if the county dips into the fund, it will do away
with a source of revenue that will have to be replaced. He also
asked how the sheriff was going to fund his communication
system if the county changes the ordinance to allow cities to
have a portion.
Commissioner Lillie Rooks said she wanted to know how
much was in the fund and how much Williston contributes to
it. Commissioner Tony Parker echoed the sentiment saying
before anything can be done, they have to know how it will
impact the county.
County Coordinator Fred Moody said the legalities needed
to be researched. "You cannot jeopardize that $12.50," he
said, "or you may not have it at all."
In a 4-1 vote with Yearty dissenting, the BOCC agreed to
have the county attorney review the ordinance and research

Both roads go both ways in Chiefland Cemetery


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The final resting place
for the bodies of many
individuals from Chiefland's
history has two roads leading
in and out of it now, but there
used to be three roads and
one of those three used to be
a one-way exit.
The cemetery is located
near the Chiefland City Yard
and Barn in the southern part
of the city next to a housing
project. One two-way paved
road that formerly led into
the cemetery has been fenced
off.
City Manager Rodney'Russ
said this fencing happened
before he took office, but he
said the road was reportedly
blocked from the cemetery
to reduce the vandalism to
tombstones and gravesites.
"A cemetery should have
limited access," Russ said.
"Nobody's in a hurry here.
It's a place of thought and
meditation."
At one time, one of the two
remainingunmarkedcemetery
roads leading from Southeast
Fourth Avenue was only an
exit. With the closure of the
wider paved road Southeast
Fifth Avenue just east of the
point where it intersects with
Eighth Terrace both roads
now are two-way roads. They
are both entrances as well
as exits. The most eastern
narrow road leading in and

THE FENCE between the Chiefland Cemetery and Southeast Fifth Avenue just
east of the point where Fifth Avenue intersects with Eighth Terrace has caused
some confusion for cemetery visitors. It has been closed to reduce thevandal-

Southeast Fourth Avenue are now two-way roads.


out of the cemetery must
have been two-way at all
times, because the only other
way to exit the cemetery after
entering by that path would
be to drive over gravesites.
The western entrance to the
cemetery may have been an
exit only, because the .thick
white stripe at the stop sign
there covers almost the whole
road indicating there was
no space left for incoming
cars prior to the closure of
the Southeast Fifth Avenue

entrance.
Nevertheless, now both
of the thin, unmarked roads
leading from Southeast
Fourth Avenue (CR 345) into
the Chiefland Cemetery are
both two-way roads.
The chain-link fence
constructed across Southeast
Fifth Avenue was built
within the past seven months,
according to Denice Lawson,
a resident next to that
intersection who moved there
about eight months ago.

As for protecting the
cemetery and maintaining
respect for the dead and
their families, the City of
Chiefland built a fence to
reduce vandalism. There is
a small sign at an entrance
to the cemetery. It sends a
message to would-be vandals:
"NO TRESPASSING THIS
CEMETERYIS OPEN ONLY
TO THOSE RESPECTING
THE PROPERTY AND

BURIED HERE."

Remodeling for resale
Not all home remodeling projects are created equal
when it comes to adding value to.your home.
With over $139 billion being spent in the past year on
home improvements, new research indicates that some
projects deliver more bang for the buck when it comes to
home resale value.
Indeed, kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects are
returning more on a homeowner's investment than ever
before, according to a new report from the National As-
sociation, of Realtors (NAR). The report also indicates that
homeowners who choose to add attic bedrooms do better
than those opting to add upscale master bedroom suites.
Many homeowners who complete midrange bathroom
remodels can expect to make money, with the project
costing an average of $10,499, but returning $10,727,
or 102.2 percent. On average, major midrange kitchen
remodels cost $43,862 and return $39,920, or 91 percent
of the costs to remodel. :
Nationally, homeowners who add an attic bedroom
spend an average of $39,188, and on resale, they recoup
93.5 percent of the cost. Master suites, however, do not
fare as well, costing $137,891 on average, but returning
only $110,512 on resale, or approximately 80.1 percent of
the remodeling expense.
And the desirability of different remodeling projects
varies by region and metropolitan area.
Buyers in the South are partial to upscale bathrooms,
which return an average of 98.5 percent of project costs.
When considering resale value, however, Southerners
may want to think twice about midrange window replace-
ments. This improvement, so popular in the West, only
returns an average of 83.7 percent of project costs in the
South.
In the final analysis, however, homeowners who are
thinking about a remodeling project should consider their
own needs and desires as well as those of the home's
future inhabitants, the NAR stresses.
The new NAR report, entitled the "2005 Cost vs. Value
Report," includes information about the resale value of
common remodeling projects in 58 U.S. housing markets.
For a synopsis of the report, interested homeowners can
visit the NAR's Web site online at www.REALTOR.org.

Several people shed tears at the school board meeting.
Applause was common after many of the speakers said how
great the coach has been for the school, for the children and
for the district.
CHS has enjoyed a 23-game regular season home winning
streak and a 19-game home winning streak as pait of its his-
tory with Holland. CHS was district football champions in
1997, 1998 and 2003, and runners-up in 1994 and 2004. Hol-
land was the Gainesville Sun's Coach of the Year in 1998 and
2001. The team recorded 85 wins in the last 12 season, show-
ing an average of more thanseven out of 10 wins per season.
Last year, the 3-7 win-loss ratio may done the coach in, but
Norris would not say that. Holland explained a reason for the

*Coach
Christian man and a great coach. Dean Chesser said reason-
able people should be able to work out" any differences, and
he can't understand why Norris terminated the coach from

that post.
The school board attorney explained to the group repeat-
edly that the school board has nothing to do with deciding
who to recommend for the various supplemental positions,
such as coaches. The board can simply approve or reject the
superintendent's recommendations.
Norris said he has no intention of recommending Holland
as the football coach at CHS, but Holland can teach in the
school district.


Continued from front
rough record in the regular season this past year.
"That's what happens when you play more freshmen and
sophomores than juniors and seniors," Holland said on May
31.
The outgoing coach says the new coach will enjoy the tal-
ented players at the school now. The CHS team beat Mayo
High School 30-19 in its post-season game a few weeks ago.
Mayo had just completed a 10-0 season.
"Whoever the new coach is," Holland said, "he's walking
into a goldmine."
The coach said he and his family will pray about this unex-
pected turn of events in his life.
Norris said the district plans to have some coach providing
weight training over the summer and he hopes to have a sum-
mer football prograin.
Still, several people strongly protested the removal of the
coach from his spot.
Concluding the hours of begging and pleading for Norris
to reconsider, Cindy Roach of the Levy County Educational
Association said the last two personnel dealings that reached(
this level of public outcry are messages for employees to see
that even if they are good at their jobs, they are not safe in
them. She wants the school board to remember the union
wants the employees to not have to work under such stressful
situations.

SLandon


custody of a child, and he was found guilty of showirig that
female child pornographic pictures.They are two separate
crimes but were connected to the whole episode with the
minor when he was 19 years old.
Cates immediately placed Landon into the custody of
the Levy County Sheriff's Office after reading the verdicts.
Deputies took Landon to the county jail.
The jury included the traditional six-member jury with two
alternates. Neither of the alternates had to be used, although
they were required to watch and listen to the entire trial. There
are no eight-member juries in Florida.
A custody status hearing prior to sentencing is to be set
soon. At that hearing, the judge may release Landon on bond
until sentencing July 12. Judge Cates ordered a pre-sentence
investigation as well, to help him determine the most just
punishment to impose on the convicted felon.
The judge will also listen to arguments from Assistant
Public Defender Chris Baisden and Assistant State Attorney
Brian Kramer to determine whether several of the sex crimes
will be counted as a single criminal episode. The prosecutor
and the defense attorney must submit case law supporting
their differing contentions.
Baisden was helped in the trial by Assistant Public Defender
Johnny Kearns and APD Susan Ward. Kramer was aided by
Assistant State Attorney Tim Browning.
Speaking on behalf of the office of Eighth Judicial Circuit
State Attorney Bill Cervone, spokesman Spencer Mann
reviewed the prosecution's case. Kearns said he never gives
interviews.
"We presented a mountain of evidence in the case," Mann
said. "We provided dozens, probably over 100 emails, between
the defendant and the victim. We provided forensic evidence
that included DNA of the defendant that was recovered from


used condoms.".
Mann said the prosecution had photos of Landon with the
girl at an Orlando hotel.
"This was not a question of consent," Mann said. "A 14-
year-old cannot give consent to have sex with an adult. She
could not have given consent at all. He was 19. She was 14."
After the age of 16, children may consent to have sex with
an adult, according to law.
In the interference of custody conviction, Mann said the
prosecution heard testimony from the victim's father, who said
he had tried to initiate a restraining order. The state brought in
the pornographic photos that the victim saw, Mann said.
Baisden did not think his client would be convicted, because
he thought the state failed to prove its case.
"This case was based solely on allegations from this
young lady who claimed they had a sexual relationship qver
an eight-month period," Baisden said. "The mountain of
evidence shown by the prosecution is phone records, emails
and letters written back and forth between two parties who
were romantically involved."
There was never enough evidence to prove the crimes that
were alleged against the defendant, Baisden said, because the
sexual contact that was alleged was not proved. The jurors
differed with the opinion of the defense attorney.
An expert from the FloridaDepartment ofLawEnforcement's
Jacksonville office testified that the DNA from epithelial cells
could come from a person's arm, hair follicles or any of a
number of other places than the "vault of a woman's vagina,"
as was alleged by the prosecution, Baisden said. Beyond that
only four of the possible 13 loci of DNA could be identified
for the victim, and on the second test of those cells the results
were inconclusive.
In fact, Baisden added, the color of certain indicators may

of the clam, is made apparent when the shell pops off. This
is done when gases build up during the decompostion stage,
Warren said.
Warren said that wildlife, particularly birds that eat the dead
clams, should not be in any danger since they are equipped for
eating decomposed matter.
He and his crew were on the river this week from Bradford
to Lower Clay Landing examing the clams and testing the
water.
By day's end Tuesday, Warren was confident nothing is
amiss on the river.
He and staff did exhaustive testing and found oxygen levels
fine. They saw no native species dead but thousands of the
Asian clams floating.
"I believe this is the natural die-off of the older generation,"
Warren said. "It is a natural phenomenon," he concluded, add-
ing that fish lovers should not be afraid to eat fish from the
Suwannee.
Annette Long of Save Our Suwannee had at first speculated
that it may be algae bloom choking the life from the clams due


to clear water, high nitrates and low flow (still water) which
caused the algae to grow explosively.
This can be unsightly and have an odor, but becomes dead-
ly when the algae begins to die and causes all of the oxygen in
the water to be tied up in decomposing the dead algae, Long
said.
Springs naturally have low dissolved oxygen due to the
fact that the water has been underground so long. However,
when a surface water like a river has 'low dissolved oxygen
it can be deadly to fish, shellfish and insects. A waterway
with artificially induced low DO is considered impaired by
the Federal Clean Water Act of 1972.
The only fish that can handle low DO tend to be little fish,
catfish, mud fish and gar fish. Bass can for a short time and so
can bream, but eventually they succumb. Some crayfish also
tolerate very low levels of oxygen in the water, Long added.
Monday, she said she had spoken with several people at the
state level and it is most likely not algae bloom, but indeed a
natural die-off brought on by the drought.
Long said that Save Our Suwannee plans to buy specialized


testing apparati to perform their own testing for dissolved ox-
ygen, salinity, etc. in the future.
And while Warren believes it is a natural die off, some older
fisherman aren't that sure.
Leslie Fisher, who drops his line near Fowler's Bluff, said
the fish haven't been biting for a couple weeks now and what
he is pulling out is incredibly small. Fisher, who prefers
bream, said up until recently he could pull in 25 fish in a short
span of time.
Not any more and Fisher says it may be water quality that's
the factor. "Three weeks ago, the river was clear," he said.
"Now it's like dishwater." I
Donald Holder who lives near Hart Springs also said the
fish have stopped biting and just this week, he saw a catfish,
a bottom feeder, flopping on top of the water. Holder said the
fish was covered with yellow splotches and another he pulled
out last week had what looked like a cancer on it.
"If it kills a cat or mud fish, it must be bad," Holder said,
adding that oil and gas from recreational vehicles on the water
are also major pollutants of the river.

be seen as "light blue". by one person or "light green" by
another. With this scientific evidence lacking enough weight
for proof, Baisden thought the jury would see the state failed
in that regard.
With more than 50 sexual encounters alleged to have
occurred over an eight-month span, investigators did not find
a speck of evidence from Landon's car, bedroom, sheets or
pillowcases, Baisden said. This speaks to the unlikelihood of
the offenses actually occurring, he said.
As for interference with the custody of a minor, Baisden
said Landon did not create a new behavior in this person.
The girl admitted sneaking out previously from her parents'
supervision, Baisden said, and that shows the state failed to
meet its burden in that regard.
Finally, the conviction for showing a minor pornographic
pictures was not founded by the evidence and -testimony
presented at trial, Baisden said. The state proved only that a
man who was an adult at the time possessed the pornographic
material, the defense attorney contended. The girl never stated
specific pictures she saw.
Depending on how the judge rules, Landon could spend
many years in prison. There will be mandatory requirements
to register as a sexual offender after he serves prison time,
if he is released from prison. The potential exists for him to
spend the rest of his life in prison.
Landon was the youngest person to be elected as a Williston
City Council member taking office when he was 18 years
old. At the age of 19, he committed 17 sex crimes, the jury
ruled. He was convicted of those crimes at the age of 21.
The Williston Police Department was the lead agency in the
investigation of the crimes and the Levy County Sheriff's
Office provided support, according to an LCSO spokesman.
