Mayor sues edyy for summer

Others named in Johannesson suit
BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Yankeetown Mayor Joanne Johannesson sued the Town of
Yankeetown, and Maxine Comer the chair of the committee l
seeking to recall Johannessori from office, and Levy County
Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell, according to records ; '
in the civil circuit court.
The mayor wants to stop the recall election. She is alleging
that she was not given due process of law, according to the
suit. The mayor is not among the people who can be removed
from office by recall election, according to the suit filed by
her attorney.
At least one summons was stamped June 12. It notes that
Comer and Asbell have 20 calendar days to respond to the -
allegations from Johannesson and her attorney. There is no Journal photo by Miriam Blitch

School board nears impact fee levy


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Newcomers to Levy
County who build new
residences may see an added
expense as a result of action
that could follow a motion by
Levy County School Board
Member Jennefer Shuster,
seconded by School Board
Member Frank Etheridge.
The Shuster-Etheridge
motion and subsequent 5-0
vote approves the acceptance,
of a report on a countywide
impact fee on residential
growth to help the school
district. This June 20 vote
will lead to more discussion
at the July 6 meeting of the
school board, where there
may be some public input on
what promises to be a request
,from the school board for
the Levy County Board of
County Commissioners to tag
onto the current impact fees.
Levy County currently
charges an impact fee of
about $1,250 to each new
single-family residence being
constructed here. This helps
pay for the added demands
on roads, recreation and


other aspects of the
infrastructure. .
Adetailed explanation
for determining the
money needed for the
school district's future
growth shows tentative
proposal to add impact
fees of $3,133 for each
new single-family or
two-family dwelling
built anywhere in Levy
County, including
within the bounds of all
of the municipalities.
The potential proposed
impact fee for each
new multifamily unit,
such'as an apartment,
would be $1,598. Every new
mobile home coming into the
county would see an impact
fee of $2,444 if the school
board requests what was
recommended June 20.
These figures are on the
low side of actual costs,
because new numbers show
construction costs have
gone up* since the base
numbers were collected
from the Florida Department
of Education, according
to Kenneth Creveling of


KENNETH REVELING
Urbanomics a consulting
firm based in Ponte Vedra
Beach.
School board members
were not quite ready to ask
the county commissioners to
impose these added impact
fees yet, but they leaned
toward making that request
during the June 20 school
board meeting.
School Board Attorney
Sheree Lancaster suggested
after Creveling's presentation
that the board wait before
adopting a resolution to seek


the added impact fee.
The June 20 agenda only
showed there would be a
report given on the impact
fee study, Lancaster said
and she added that the
public may want to give
some input before the
board asks the commission
to impose the fees .
There will be other
public hearings at the
county commission
meetings, if that group of
leaders considers granting
the school board members'
request.
Twenty-three of
Florida's 67 counties
already have adopted impact
fees to force growth to
support itself. The average
fee is between $1,000 and
$3,000, but some counties are
higher. The top four counties
with impact fees on a 2,000'
square-foot, three-bedroom,
single-family home are Polk
County at $8,596; Osceola
County at $7,608; Lake
County at $7,055; and Orange
County at $7,000.
Creveling recommended
against using square-footage


or number of bedrooms as a
method to determine impact
fees. It is better to use the type
of housing for establishing
the number of dollars to be
paid in impact fees.
Flager County is the fastest
,growing county in the nation,
Superintendent of Schools
Clifton Norris said. It was the
establishment of impact fees
for schools there, he added,
that saved it. That school
district currently collects
between $2 million and $3
million in impact fees for
schools, Norris said.
Creveling suggested the
school board add a provision
to review the fees every two
or three years, too.
In the end, it is only the
Levy County Board of County
Commissioners who have the
power to levy these impact
fees for the school district.
The school board, however,
has the power to request
that the county, commission
impose the fees.. Unlike
the county commission's
current impact fee, this can

DEBRA HOUSKA (LEFT AND SHARON LIVINGSTON


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The race for two Chiefland
City Commission seats started
June 17 with two qualifiers
entering at the last minute.
Sharon Livingston sat in
the parking lot of Chiefland
City Hall in a black Chrysler
PT Cruiser for several
minutes Friday afternoon as
the temperature registered
near 90 on the sign outside
the building that was once a
bank. Livingston waited in
the car before meeting Debra
Houska, who arrived after 4
p.m. in a county-owned dark
silver Ford pickup truck.
Both women came in at
the very last hour to qualify
for the Group 2 and Group 4
Chiefland City Commission
races. The deadline for
qualifying ended at 4:30 p.m.


that day.
Livingston is running
against Teal Pomeroy, the
incumbent in the Group
2 race. Houska is running
against Teresa Barron the
incumbent in Group 4, and
both face reelection.
.The F-150 pickup that
Houska arrived in is part of
the fleet .serving the Levy-
Gilchrist-Suwannee Counties
Housing Authority, which
was listed as her main income
source on her qualification
papers. Housing Authority
Executive Director Robert L.
"Bob" Williams said he has
six people in his office and
said he allows Houska and
his other employees to use
county vehicles for personal
purposes because they are
on call at all times. They can
use the vehicles if they are


passing by an area, passing to
and from work. Houska lives
right off Park Avenue down
the street from city hall,
Williams said.
Williams said his staff
does not abuse this benefit
of having a vehicle with a
county tag.
"We don't get funding from
the city, state or county,"
Williams said. "We were
created under Chapter 421.
That is why we have county
tags on the vehicles. That is
the only benefit we get from
the county."
The Housing Authority is
fundedby subsidies and grants
from the federal government,
Williams explained.
Livingston listed Orion
Medical of Miami as her

you don't know what's
good.

PROUDLY SERVING

DISTRICT 10
$66 million of state tax dollars is being returned to District 10
counties in the form of FRDAP Grants, Road Projects, Water
and Wastewater Projects, Beach Restoration, Small County
Courthouses, Historic Preservation and Health & Safety
Projects.
The list includes:
V 14 Recreation Projects (Parks, River Walks,
Livestock Arena, Campground, Sports Complex)
1 14 Road Projects (Building, Paving, Resurfacing)
V 5 Small County Courthouse Renovation Projects
V 5 Wastewater and Stormwater Projects
/ 2 Rural Health & Safety Projects

HEALTH CARE
The 2006 Budget contains major funding for our seniors and
children alike. It restores Medicaid coverage for adult hearing
and vision services, and expands the amount of time nursing
home staff can spend with individual patients each day. This
increase will serve to ensure our citizens are properly cared
for in nursing home facilities. The 2006 Legislature extended
the Florida KidCare program to include children ages 1-4 who
were previously ineligible for the program. Low income par-
ents can now purchase high quality health coverage at low
cost, for all of their children.

JUSTICE
The state budget provides funds for the local Sheriff's office to
contract with the Department of Juvenile Justice to administer
a new STAR juvenile program to help our troubled youth.
This program replaces the previous boot camp program
which was eliminated during the 2006 Legislative Session.

City appreciates response
To the editor:
A letter of appreciation to all the people who participated
in the recent emergency response, regarding Tropical Storm
Alberto; and the government agencies who orchestrated
everything from emergency shelters to radio information
spots, etc.
It is a blessing we live in a community that has such dedi-
cated and capable men as Police Chief Robert Douglas, Fire
Chief David Burnett and County Sheriff Johnny Smith.
This particular weather threat was much less than adver-
tised but no mistake, we know that our emergency plans
were tested and not found lacking.
I would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all city
departments and staff involved.

June is the last time to plant
BY D.T. PENDLETON
CORRESPONDENT
These hot summer months are difficult for the gardener.
June is the last month to really do any planting. If you
haven't gotten it planted by now, don't bother.
It isn't really the month to do major pruning either. The
exceptions are azaleas and gardenias. Gardenias can be cut
back now. They should be almost done blooming. They
should not be pruned much after September.
Azaleas need to be pruned by the first week in July. They
will begin to form flower buds for spring, if you prune them
by July, you will have a good show.
If you prune your azaleas after July, then you will cut off
the spring flower show. I like to fertilize after I prune but not
in heat like this. If your azaleas are looking yellow, try using
a granular fertilizer which can be mixed in water. Remember
the rule of one third. Only remove one third the height. If
you remove more than one third in this heat, they may not
leaf out again, the leaves may get sunburned. Newly exposed
bark may even get sunburned and be slow re-leafing.
Fertilizer Facts
For summer heat, I like to use Peter's water soluble (mixes
with water) fertilizer with a 20-20-Q2 analysis. There is also
Miracle Grow which has a different analysis. I like the 20-
20-20 because it is balanced. The analysis is the content of
the fertilizer. The first number is the fertilizer component
which will feed the leaves. The second number is the
nutrient which will feed the flowers for blooming plants. The
third number is for the roots.
XThe firt,number shoulder e low for blooming plants ,if'
because you.want more nutrients to go. to theflowers... -.
Plants like grass, or trees like maples should have high first
numbers because you don't need flowers.
For feeding your turf grass, the lower the middle number
on the fertilizer, the better. There are some super fertilizers
with high first numbers for greening grass. These are not
good. The first number on your turf grass should hover near
16. Your grass should be fed about three times a year.
This is the blooming number and this number you
want even as high as 50 for blooming plants. If you want
vegetable food, keep this number higher than the first for a
good harvest. The more flowers present, the more vegetable
or fruit production.
The third number is the number which feeds the roots. It
is ironic that this number is usually the lowest in the analysis
numbers and yet it is as important as leaves.
There are several kinds of fertilizers. Water soluble mixes
with water. This kind of fertilizer will feed you plants
immediately through roots and leaves. Any fertilizer not
absorbed by the plants will dissipate into the ground. This
type can be applied with a watering can. Some packages
contain instructions for using a hose end sprayer. This is a
great way to apply fertilizer to a large amount of plants. It is
OK to apply water soluble fertilizer in the heat if you apply
early in the morning before the temps reach the middle 70s.
Granular usually is small particles of fertilizer. This
fertilizer will show results in about 30 days. Some fertilizers
also have pre-emergent weed killers with them. These are
called weed and feed and usually are for turf grass. They
should not be used once temperatures reach 80 or above.
Slow release has a coating over each particle. Again there
are many analyses available but I like OsmocoteTM because
I can get a balanced formula, 14-14-14: I have never burned
any plants with this material. Organic fertilizer is almost
a whole article in itself. I will cover that more in organic
gardening.
This time of year just try to maintain the garden. Keep it
weeded to keep down pests: Keeping out weeds will also
mean there is more water for your plants when you water or
when it rains.

I was Christie Brinkley


T he question was
rhetorical. I knew
the answer before I
placed the call, but yet I did
it anyway.
"Are eight outfits too
many for a two-day week-
end?"
Five minutes later when
the guffaws died down,
the answer validated my
thoughts.
"Of course not! So what
are you bringing?"
And for the next 20 min-
utes I regaled Denise with
the contents of my suitcase,
adding at the end, "What else
do I need?"
For the last umpteen years,
Denise and I have attended
the awards banquet held by
the Georgia Press Associa-
tion.
. Me. residing in Bloridaithis
year would not stop tradi- :
tion.
Truth to tell, it wasn't so
much the awards banquet
that excited us all those
years, but the thoughts of be-
ing on a semi-paid vacation
at a resort where we could let
our hair down.
This year was no excep-
tion.
So with my suitcase
stuffed with formal wear, ca-
sual wear, slouchy wear and
everything in between, I set
out for Savannah Thursday
where I would meet her and
her daughters for two days of
guilt-free pleasure.
I was almost to the city
that Sherman presented
to Lincoln as a Christmas
present, when a little aqua
Altima passed me. (I am
very conscious of my speed
after one ticket and another
narrow escape.)
The car pulled along side
of me, evened itself out and
then the driver--a man old
enough to be my father took
a long meandering look.
As he pulled in front of
me, he was still checking me
out in the rearview mirror.
And then he slowed to a
snail's pace. I followed him
about 10 minutes before I
made my move.


for 15 minutes


',: THINKING OUT
LOUD





Carolyn Risner


I passed him but dared not
make eye contact.
I got several car lengths
in front of him and then he
decided to pass me again.
This time as he made his
approach, he gave a little
"Cheerio" wave as he pulled'
in front of me.
I thought of Christie Brin-
kley as The Blonde in Na-
tional Lampoon's Vacation
and this guy with the vanity
plates, that readr'-HORSES" 'n ,
was Chevy Chase.
He then gave a signal to
turn at the next exit ramp and
since I was headed for fun in
the sun, I ignored his gigan-
tic arm motions as he tried to
get me to pull off with him.
For a fleeting 15 minutes,
I was the object of desire, the
whim of a man who probably
had a wife and six children at
home but who was looking
for adventure.
Obviously he doesn't
know how vicious I am in
the mornings or how Sean
Connery is the only man my
father's age I would get off
the interstate for.
I arrived at the hotel two
solid hours before Denise-
-who is never on time for
anything.
I read by the pool, had a
shower and returned to the
pool before she ever made an
appearance.
And then it was Katie bar
the door.
We talked. We talked. We
talked some more.
At 2:30 a.m. we were still
by the pool when a straggler
from inside the motel ap-
proached and said it looked
as if the party was by the
pool.
We ignored him. Chris-
tie Brinkley would never


flirt with
Drew
Carey.;
We fell
comatose
into bed
and awak-
ened early
to hit the
beach at


Tybee
Island.
We both took books but less
than a chapter was read as
we continued our gab fest.
The banquet was elegant;
the food sparse and tasteless-
but what mattered was we
were having the time of our
lives, dressed to the nines in
sequins and chiffon.
I even wore my Bambi
necklace (and I don't mean
like the deer) because Denise -
said it g venmeiiphaahe, "
We ferried acrbts there! :r-'
Savannah River, met up with
her daughters and wandered
aimlessly along River Street
in our formal attire and flip
flops (three-inch heels and
cobblestones do not mix
well).
Again at 3 a.m. we col-
lapsed only to. hit Tybee
again Saturday morning.
After surf, sand and chow-
der--and of course looking
for souvenir shoes (it's what
we do every year), we al-
lowed Ashley, the older of
the two daughters, to con-
tinue her chauffeuring.
As evening waned and
we knew we would part,
we both realized that in our
eight or nine trips to the
Hostess City, we had never
done anything touristy. We
are not the kind of people
cities want to come visit. We
hole up by the pool, bring
our own snacks and drinks
and don't move. We pledged
to be better tourists next
time around.
And next time I will know
that eight outfits are too
much.
'A bathing suit, a pair of
shorts and Chloraseptic are
all you need when you're
Christie Brinkley touring Sa-
vannah with your best friend.


Flying


squirrels,


oh my!

The University of
Florida Institute
of Food and
Agricultural Sciences has
placed a
cooperative
extension
office
in every
county.
Anthony
Drew,
the top
agricultural
extension JEFF M.
agent for HARDISON
plants Columnist
in Levy
County, told me this week
that he forgot to mention
there are flying squirrels
here. He previously helped
me with this one talking
squirrel. Although Rocky the
Squirrel of the Bullwinkle
Show was a flying squirrel
and he talked, as did the
moose, Bigs (Big Grandpa
Squirrel) cannot fly. Bigs is
not a gray squirrel or a fox
squirrel either. He is a unique
squirrel a one-of-a-kind
kinda' squirrel.
This extension agent had
told me there were two
species of squirrels that
he knew about in Levy
County. Anyway, Mr. Drew
has now told me there are
flying squirrels here in Levy
County.
He specializes in plants,
but he was kind enough to
give me a few minutes talk
about the various kinds of
si el "lt.'t told'
about this flying type of ",
squirrel until this week.
That is coincidental.
I photographed the
Shands flying ambulance
(helicopter) while the pilot
was landing it in downtown
Chiefland this week. It
is also coincidental to be
writing about flying squirrels
in Levy County because
the National Guard and
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement flew around the
county in helicopters looking
for marijuana plants this
week, too.
Bigs is a special squirrel.
Bigs is a metaphor of sorts.
Even as a metaphor, though,
he is somewhat mixed. Bigs
represents different things
at different times. In his first
appearance, he represented
using common sense to
preserve some part of this
county when the county's
comprehensive land use plan
is modified.
In his second appearance,
Bigs represented his
individuality by not wanting
to be cubby-holed into
a species group. Most
plants and animals can be
categorized, or classified.

Sexual predator review brings no arrests


The seven registered sexual
predators who reside in Levy
County were all accounted
for on July 16, Levy County
Sheriff's Capt. Chuck Bastak
said.
Law enforcement officers
from Levy, Alachua
and Marion counties all
performed verifications on
where this particular type
of convicted felon lives in
those counties,' Bastak said.
This is an ongoing process,
which occurs monthly and
can happen at any number of
random intervals.
\ Sexual predators are
designated differently
S than the other sex-crime
offenders because they have
demonstrated a propensity
to include violence in their
acts, according to statutes
related to defining criminals
in Florida.
In regard to the more than
100 other individuals living
in Levy County who have
been convicted of sex crimes
other than the predatory kind,
the Levy County Sheriff's
Office remains vigilant as
well, Bastak said.
"We don't mess around,"'
he said in regard to keeping
track of people convicted of
sex crimes.
Inthe eventofan evacuation
due to a pending hurricane
or tropical storm, there are
spaces for 25 of those people
to be housed at the Levy
County Jail. There are also
deputies at each shelter who
check identifications to assure
everyone in those shelters
remains safe and secure from
criminals, Bastak said.

Cedar Key Police
"Due to mitigating
circumstances your Police
Department.. has failed to
keep you informed for the
past month or so, but we will
make an attempt to bring you
up to date on the happenings
during May 2006 through
June 14, 2006. Please accept
our apology and we promise
to be a little m'rte pti'ctual in'
the future," Cedar Key Police
Chief Bubba Castell noted.
The chief wrote that the
Cedar Key Police have not
made it a priority to enforce
curfew violations during the
past few weeks, however
continued criminal mischief
and trespassing complaints
leave the officers with no
option but to start filing
sworn complaints on people
younger than 18 who defy the
established 11 p.m. curfew on
Cedar Key.
Levy County Sheriff
Johnny M. Smith Jr. was
thanked by Chief Castell for
the sheriff's efforts during*
Tropical Storm Alberto. The
sheriff sent no less than a
dozen deputies to help ensure
the safety and welfare of
Cedar Key residents, Castell
wrote.
He also thanked the Florida
Department of Agriculture,
the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement, the
Florida Highway Patrol and
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
for their diligent efforts to
keep people safe. Prisoners
under the direction of officers
from the Florida Department
of Corrections helped clean
up the roadways after Alberto
also, the chief noted.
"This type of camaraderie is
what good law enforcement is
all about," Castell said, "and
if you see any of these officers

Florida's marijuana farmers
face felony charges when they
are captured growing their
crop, and the federal, .state
and local law enforcement
communities are working
to bring those growers to
justice.
At the least, some outdoor
pot growers are losing their
plants when federal, state

officers rip them from the
ground. That was the case
in Levy County this week,
where there, were no arrests
but plants were plucked from
the ground.

Levy County Sheriff's Lt.
Danny Riffle as a spotter
in the FDLE helicopter.
Three soldiers with the
National Guard troops served
as spotters in the other
helicopter.
Another four Levy County


deputies, five officers from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife'
Conservation Commission,
and one law. enforcement
officer from the Florida'
Department of Agriculture'
and Consumer Services'
Division of Forestry were on'
the ground assisting with the
seek and retrieve mission.
Searchers located 28 plants'
the first day in the Rosewood
area. The second day, spotters
found and trackers removed
26 plants from the Morriston'
area.
This eradication effort'
is interpreted as collecting
$54,000 worth of marijuana'
because each plant is'
calculated to 'produce one
pouthd when mature, Dykstra
said. The rate for a pound of
Florida grown marijuana is-
$1,000, Dykstra added. Some
of the marijuana plants were
pungent and smelled as if a
skunkhad sprayed them.
The number ofplants found
growing in the woods of
Levy County has decreased'
over the years, Dykstra said,'
because growers are taking'
their enterprises indoors.'
Florida marijuana farmers
are placing them under grow-
lights nowadays, Dykstra
said. Finding those indoor
farmers primarily depends'
on informants now, Dykstra'
said.

Without a site, Bronson

Chamber still plans fair


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
When the Bronson Town Council meets in July, Greater
Bronson Area Chamber of Commerce President Bob Levesque
is ready to show it vhy a request to hold the Levy County Fair
in Bronson is a great choice.
He will show Vice Mayor Aaron Edmondson a copy of
liability insurance the chamber had for its music event in
February. For Mayor Beatrice Mongo, the chamber president
is bringing information about events held at Bronson Athletic
Park.
After speaking with an official in regard to the Florida
Recreational Development Assistance Program, which funded
the park through grants that were completed a few years ago
but which hold rules for 25 years past the close of the grant,
Levesque found the proper method for holding events that
cost admission there.
"We can have an event at the park and charge for admission,"
Levesque said. "We can require proof of residency and charge
non-residents a higher fee."
The requirements of the grants show that the event needs
only be posted for the public to see two weeks in advance of a
planned event that will cost admission. Once that occurs, even
the people who enter the park to walk around the track or use
the swingset must pay the admission fee while that event is
going on.
One requirement of an'event sponsor is that he or she does
not remove or damage facilities that were put on the property
through the grant funds. Also, the park must be maintained to
appear clean and not run-down.
Livestock Show and More
Plans for the Levy County Fair continue with Mickey
Beauchamp chairing the livestock committee. He said there
will be a prospect steer and heifer show not sale. There will
be ribbons for the grand champion and reserve champion.
Members of the 4-H and FFA from Levy, Gilchrist, Dixie and
Alachua counties can participate.
In the hog show, it will be limited to Levy County children
aged 10 to 13, and the 50 hogs to be raised will all be provided
by one farmer.
The top hogs will be auctioned and the remainder can be
sold at market price. Add ons will be allowed. This means a
company can tack on some amount ofper-pound money for the
children to receive more cash from their hogs. This county fair,
Beauchamp said, is going to go more toward education about
livestock than the March event held in Fanning Springs.
Children will have log books. The older group will give
two-minute speeches about raising their hogs.
There is a potential goat show planned as well as a home
economics show. A horse show, possible barrel racing,
lawnmower races, a drill team and live entertainment are
all potentially part of the county fair plans. Food and drink
vendors can be expected as well..
Pig racing, duck racing, chicken ratingi,'cow chip Bingo
and a barbecue competition are among the other potential
events set to be at the Levy County Fair.
Levesque said there can be a king and queen contest as well
as a talent or idol search, and rides.
The fair is set to happen Nov. 16-19. Until the Bronson
Town Council approves the park as being the place, more firm
details cannot be assured.
If you would like to help with the fair, call the chamber at
(352) 486-8029.

Turner, Wilkerson speak vows

Raymond Turner of Florida and Phyllis Becton of Ohio
announce the marriage of their daughter, Sheila Turner to
Scott Wilkerson, both of Bronson.
The groom is the son of Alvin Wilkerson and Bonnie
Davidson of Levy county.
An intimate wedding with family and close friends in
attendance was held June 15, with their son, Ashton Wilkerson,
serving as ring bearer.
The couple plans an island getaway honeymoon.


Buy dove permits
starting July 1
Beginning 10 a.m. July 1,
sportsmen can purchase dove
club permits at any county tax
collector's office, authorized
license agent, or at MyFWC.
com/dove or by calling toll-
free 1-888HUNT-FLORIDA
(486-8356). The deadline
to purchase permits is 11:59
p.m. Sept. 10.
Dove club permits are
available on a first-come,
first-served basis and allow
one adult and one youth
(under age 16) to participate
in all scheduled hunts for a
designated dove field (up to
eight days). These Saturday
half-day hunts cost $150 and
enable the permit holder and
1 youth to both take daily
bag limit of birds.
Interested hunters should
purchase permits early
because demand for these
hunts often exceeds their
availability.


Correction: A request
to rezone property previously
annexed into the city by the
Hardee, Rowe and Hutson
families was granted by a 5-0
vote after a motion by Com-
missioner Alice Monyei was
seconded by Commissioner
Rollin Hudson.
This is how text should
have appeared in a story in
the June 15 issue. An edit-
ing error caused "Hutson
families" 'to be changed to
"Hudson families." We regret
any confusion this may have
caused.

This is easy to remember. Just think of.Kipod Cofigs,

In any event, with the flying squirrels and helicopters all 13
buzzing around Levy County, we
may have occasion to see some fur
fly.
Anyway, Bigs is a great.squirrel. -
He is beyond the whole Kipod
Cofigs concept. He has told me that
he doesn't fly, but I would not be
surprised if he didn't borrow one of
his cousins' capes or whatever those
flying squirrels use to glide. So there MOCKINGBIIDNEST ,
we would see Bigs barnstorming and ..ii
swooping through the air just to show off. Perhaps, this is,. )
the kind of squirrel that he is. ...
Bigs talked to me about one of the many protected species t
in our county, and in our state. The Florida.Mockingbird. ,
is the state bird. It is protected. Do not hunt them or harass
them! .
I found a Mockingbird nest recently..I took a picture of :..
it. I am a little surprised that I was not swooped upon by the.l,
momma bird. I guess the eggs are not in the nest yet. ,,
In any event, listen to the Mockingbirds. They can't talk. q
like Bigs but they sure can sing. n
That's all for now. I just wanted to share the update about
flying squirrels living here in addition to the gray squirrelsle
and fox squirrels. il

Street light to be added near Pepperidge Apartments


By JEFF M. HARDISON ,
Staff Writer
When the heart of darkness
needs piercing in Chiefland,
among the options the city
may exercise is to add
streetlights.
The Chiefland City
Commission can overrule
administrative policies when
it sees fit, City Attorney Norm
Fugate said, after being asked
about a couple of policies that
were sidestepped before a
recent decision was reached.
On May 9, MaryAnn Griner
of Pepperidge Apartments,
1110 N.E. Third St., asked the
city to add a street light on the
south side of the apartment
complex where she lives.
i Griner told the city
leaders that the owners of
the apartment complex have
failed to repair some lights
ih the complex, and she
believes better lighting will
help reduce criminal acts in
the area.
On June 12, on a motion
by Commissioner Rollin
Hudson, seconded by
Commissioner Teal Pomeroy,
the commission voted 5-0
to add a street light just as
Griner had requested.
This vote, however, shovs
that the leaders need not
follow the exact letter of
the city's administrative
"Streetlight Placement
Policy," according to
records.
The first step in the policy
shows "A request for a street
light to be installed must
originate from the owner
of the property in question
who shall fill out a form


that includes the reasons)
for wanting a light installed,
address of the property, and
proof of ownership."
Fugate waved off a
-question about the ownership
requirement. He did not
speak a word when asked
about that. There may be a
presumption of ownership by
renters. Hence the attorney
saw no need for clarification
to the city commission on
that question.
The second step in the
policy shows "Upon receipt
of a request, the City Manager
shall convene a meeting of the
street light committee, which
also includes the Mayor and
Police Chief."
Although City Manager
Rodney Russ and Police
Chief Robert Douglas went
to the area to see if it was
well lit or not, Mayor Teresa
Barrori said she chose against
going because she is related
to the person who requested
the light.
Nevertheless, Barren voted
to install it because the only
reason to not vote is when it
will be to the benefit of the
public official casting the
vote.
Vice Mayor Betty Walker
said she was left behind
when Russ and Douglas left
city hall to look at the light.
Walker said she had arrived
on time for the trip to review
the area. The police chief said
that when he arrived to go on
the tour for lighting review,
the city manager was ready
to go and they just left.
Fugate said the commission

regard to the mayor attending
to determine if a street light
is needed. The majority of a
three-person committee is
two people, Fugate added.
Therefore, the positive
endorsement for the street
light by Russ and Douglas
was sufficient enough to
justify adding the street light.
Deputy City Clerk Mary
Ellzey conducted research
to determine the cost to
taxpayers for the installation
and operation of. the street
light. The city saved $175
because a pole already is in
place for the light.
There is a $50 connection
fee for the light, though,
which must. be paid. The
monthly electric bill to the
city starts at $9.50 per month,


and will depend on the
wattage needed to light the
area, Ellzey found.
Other facts came to light
from this lighting issue.
Douglas said the apartment
owners and manager have
repeatedly told him they
intend to repair electrical
problems with the lights that
remain unlit at the apartment
complex but the owner has
failed to keep his promise
so far. Douglas suggested
turning the problem over
to the nuisance abatement
committee.
Pomeroy said he likes
the idea of the nuisance
abatement committee taking
hold of the lighting problem
at Pepperidge Apartments.
There is drug dealing


happening in that area,
Douglas said, and proper
lighting will help reduce this
problem.

$hands rescue helicopter flies boy from Chiefland
.o* .. /-* "4.1- ,-*, .. .


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Whump, whump, whump,
whump. The unmistakable
sound of helicopter rotors
chopping the air abo\e Main
Street and Park Avenue in
downtown Chiefland brought
shopkeepers out from their
businesses on the afternoon
of June 14.
Onlookers saw a rescue
helicopter from Shands
Teaching Hospital in
Gainesville. It landed in the
area known to Levy County
resuce personnel as "the
Chiefland Landing Zone," a
field just south of the Three
Sisters store at 22 S. Main
St.
This particular Agusta Spa
Model A109E helicopter
went into service with Shands
on Oct. 8, 2004, according
to records at the Federal.
Aviation Administration. The
engine type is turbo-shaft.
The engine was manufactured
in Canada and the helicopter
is from a company in Italy.
The helicopter crew
responded to a medical
emergency where a 5-year-
old boy had fallen while in
a home in the 400 block of
Southwest 10h Circle, in the
Buie Park area. Chiefland
Fire Chief David Burnett
and firefighter-Emergency
Medical Technician David
Florance found the boy
unconscious and pale.
'The child's heart-rate
and respiration were below
normal. The first responders
administered oxygen, which
brought color back to his
face, Burnett said. The
chief radioed for helicopter
transportation of the patient
as soon as he saw the severity
of the little boy's condition.
First responders arrived
within two minutes of the
2:58 p.m. call for help, which
came to the Chiefland Fire
Department that Wednesday,
Burnett said. Levy County
Emergency Medical Service
staff arrived in about eight to
nine minutes.

Police chief creates ordinance to generate money


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas left an impression
on Mayor Teresa Barron by his seeking grants, obtaining gifts
and other practicing other methods to help the city coffers
cover the expense of municipal law enforcement.
She extolled his efforts at a recent meeting where she
also noted her contentment with the work being done by the
relatively new city manager Rodney Russ.
An ideaDouglas presentedto the Chiefland City Commission
on June 12 met with favorable follow-up instructions from the
commission. The commission appeared to want to accept the
chief's general concept with little hesitation.
Douglas wants to connect with a company that collects
from insurance companies to cover the cost of policemen
responding to vehicular accidents. There are already 10 law
enforcement agencies in Florida that collect money from
insurance companies after crashes, Douglas said.
It costs Chiefland taxpayers between $200 and $300 for
each crash the Chiefland Police Department investigates,
Douglas said.
The city of Belleview already has collected between $8,000
and $10,000 since February when it started the program, he
added.
If this ordinance is adopted, the CPD will investigate
a crash, Douglas said, and then it will tally the time and
expense, and give the information to Cost Recovery Services
or some similar company. That company in turn will present
insurance companies with bills for service. The city will
receive reimbursement for its costs from insurance companies
as a result.
After some input from Chiefland City Attorney Norm
Fugate, the commission advised Douglas that it wants a draft
of Douglas' version of an ordinance to follow Florida law. It
wants Douglas to find other companies like Cost Recovery
Services to compare benefits for the city.
The third caveat the city commissioners wanted as they
moved forward with the concept is to be certain the at-fault
insurance company pays. In other words, the city wants the
"guilty party" to pay.
The chief said this new method for funding law enforcement
agencies will not cause insurance rates to go up. There was
about $491 billion in an account that is from interest made
on trillions of dollars in an account, he said. That account,
he added, is what was used during Hurricane Ivan, Hurricane
Charlie and the other 2004 hurricanes. The claims from those
people who suffered losses then were paid by the interest
in that account which never touched the principle on that
account, Douglas said.
This is why the chief thinks this procedure will not cause
insurance rates to increase as this new practice comes into
use.
Douglas said the Williston Police Department is considering
the idea,'too. '
Another example of where Douglas is saving the city'
money came from the acceptance of two used Crown Victoria
cruisers one was a 2001 and one was a 2002 donated by
the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
Douglas told the city commissioners that Seminole County
Sheriff Donald F. Eslinger has helped Chiefland before. The
donation of these two cruisers, equipped with lights, sirens,
cages,. shotgun mounts and the like has no negative fiscal
impact on the city.
Douglas will obtain the titles and other paperwork. On
a motion by Commissioner Teal Pomeroy, seconded by
Commissioner Alice Monyei, the city commission voted 5-
0 to accept the gift of two crusiers from Seminole County
Sheriff Eslinger.


Other Action
In other action, the Chiefland City Commission:
approved by a 4-0 vote, with Monyei abstaining
because she is related to one of the people, the reappointment
of three people to the city's planning board. The members
whose terms expired but who were reappointed were Melanie
Allen, Maxi Beauchamp and Mary Marshall. The motion
to approve the reappointments was made by Pomeroy and
seconded by Rollin Hudson.
learned the Levy County Board of County
Commissioners approved a request to let the city landscape
the county-owned portion of Park Avenue.


approved by a 5-0 vote a request from City Manager
Rodney Russ to donate a 2,000-gallon tank that was once
used by Chiefland to haul sludge. Chiefland will donate it to
Crescent City because it is no longer any use. The motion to
approve the donation was made by Betty Walker and seconded
by Pomeroy.
agreed to purchase $8,000 worth of used landscaping
equipment from a local business that is closing its doors.
Commissioners heard from staff that this is a good buy and
the city attorney said the city can forego the bid process in this
instance. The motion to approve the purchase was made by
Walker and seconded by Hudson.

Repair or replace the roof?
"Standard strip asphalt shingles have a life expectancy of 15 to 20
years in perfect conditions," says Reggie Marston, president of Resi-
dential Equity Management Home Inspections in Virginia.
However, depending on shingle exposure, improper installation, at-
tic ventilation, overhanging growth, algae, moss, and a number of other
environmental issues, your roof shingles may not last their normal life
expectancy.
"The roof shingles can be repaired as long as they're in good condi-
tion," stresses Marston. "The shingles should be pliable, laying per-
fectly flat, and the granules should be intact."
"If the roofing material is reaching the end of its life expectancy or
the shingles show signs of curling, excessively loose or missing gran-
ules, blisters, are brittle, or the keyways (the slots in the shingles) are
separating, then the roofing material should be replaced," he says.
According to Marston, all flashings should be inspected yearly, and
repaired or replaced as necessary. The rubber boot around vent stack
flashings normally only lasts seven to 10 years before it requires re-
placement.

Manatee talk dominates public hearing


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
What could have been a
cut and dried deal ended up
being an emotion filled eve-
ning as Yankeetown residents
pleaded with the Levy Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
.sioners to save the manatees.
The earnest pleas were
heard during a public hearing
Tuesday night on the Levy
County Comprehensive Plan
Evaluation and Appraisal Re-
port (EAR).
County Planner Kathy
Winburn spent the first 30
minutes of the hearing ex-
plaining EAR and then out-
lining the findings that will
be submitted to the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs.
But when it came to the
public comment portion of
the hearing, the only com-
ments given were those re-
garding manatee protection'
onthe Withalacoochee River
in Yankeetown.
One by one Yankeetown
residents took to the lectern
and asked the commissioners
to consider adding the Mana-
tee Protection Plan (MPP) to
the county's comprehensive
plan.
Edward Candela reminded
the commissioners that the
MPP 'was supposed to have
been added to the comp
plan in 1995 but for some
'unknown reason, the action
never occurred.
Candela read a letter writ-
ten to DCA and signed by 40
residents objecting to Levy
County not including the
MPP. Not only is the With-
alacoochee a habitat for the
manatee, but it is also a birth-
ing area, he said.
Winbum, at the direction of
the BOCC, told Candela and
the Yankeetown contingent
that because manatees were
not addressed during the pre-
liminary EAR workshops last
year, it is too late to include
them in this plan. She said it


could take up to two years to
cross the t's and dot the i's for
such a request to become a
reality.
George Ross, another Yan-
keetown resident, told the
commissioners he didn't have
a clue what they did and he
wasn't there to criticize.
However, Ross said, when
an error is made it needs to
be corrected as soon as pos-
sible.
He said an error must have
been made in 1995 or the
MPP would have been in-
cluded.
"You correct the error at
any cost," Ross said, saying
corrections should take min-
utes, hours and at the most
days. "Not 18-24 months," he
said, referring to Winburn's
information it could take up
to two years to add the MPP
to the comp plan.
Larry Cohen urged the
commissioners to pass a
resolution that reinstates the
resolution their predeces-
sors passed in 1995 and'told
them they were naive if they
thought the state would pro-
vide protection for the mana-
tees in the river.
Others implored the com-
missioners to help them be-
cause they didn't feel they
were getting support from
their town council and its
leadership.
Many referenced the pro-
spective development near
the Izaak Walton Lodge that
has torn the town asunder,
with many residents claiming
such a development would
not only destroy their com-
munity, but destroy the mana-
tees as well.
"This board is concerned,"
said Commissioner Sammy
Yearty,. who told the citizens
he had been on die commis-
sion when the NrPP \\as first
introduced.
"We're not going to
change," Yearty said, adding
if the BOCC attempted to do


National Board Teacher Workshop

scheduled for June 26 28
If you are a classroom teacher and are interested in be-
coming a National Board Certification candidate or learning
more about the process, there is a workshop being held just
for you.
The workshop, entitled "Jump Start Into the National
Board Teacher Certification Process," will be held at Wiles.
Elementary School, from 1-4 p.m. on June 26-28.
This National Board Mentor sponsored workshop will pro-
vide an overview of the National Board achievement process
and will examine the Documented Accomplishment Entry
and the writing process. Application assistance will be avail-
able.
National Board Certification is the highest credential in the
education profession and graduate level coursework credits
may be requested upon achieving certification.
The Florida State Legislature has recognized the signifi-
cance of National Board Certification by authorizing supple-
mentary annual compensation for National Board Certified
Educators.
If you would like more information about the workshop,
please contact Anni Egan at 352-472-4986 or Carolyn Turner.
at 352-955-6955.


anything now, it may. have
dire future repercussions.
"You can't change the rules
in the middle," he said, add-
ing even if the board agreed
to add it to the EAR that eve-
ning, it would be 2008 before
it went into effect.
Yearty also pointed out that
manatees are protected in
other ways and the MPP was
written specifically for the
Withalacoochee and does not
cover the Suwannee River or
the Waccasassa River.
, Commissioner Lilly Rooks
said she had received 125,
e-mails asking the commis-
sioners to not touch its land
development code and dock


ordinance.
When the residents again
expressed concern about fu-
ture big development, Yearty
said, "Residents have more
(influence) than someone
who comes in and tries to do
something detrimental down
there."
In a 5-0 vote, the commis-
sioners passed a resolution
to send the EAR to DCA as
is, but also told the residents
they were not alone in this
endeavor. They do care, not
only about manatees, but
their constituents and their
concerns.
(Next week: EAR--its con-
tents)


Watch where you put


those campaign signs
Candidates running for political offices and their campaign
workers are reminded by the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation (FDOT) that campaign signs are not allowed on state
right-of-way, no matter how large or small.
Florida law prohibits any sign on state right-of-way other
than FDO signs. Placing campaign signs along the roadways
on private property without the permission of the property
owner is also illegal.
FDOT crews spend many hours removing political signs
from the state right-of-way. The campaign signs that are re-
moved are taken to the nearest maintenance yard and stored
until someone claims them. If unclaimed by the general elec-
tion, they are taken to the local landfills.
The FDOT asks for the cooperation of everyone associated
with a political campaign in not putting signs up on the state
right-of-way.
Questions can be directed to your local FDOT office or the
Public Information Office in Lake City at 1-800-749-2967.

Bell concurred it could have some benefits but also stressed
the way it's constructed could cause frustration and discour-
age new businesses.
"We need more dialogue," she said. "How much will it
cost? How will it benefit us?"
"We're $2,500 from. having your answers," Moody said,
asking if they should stop now and hold public hearings to
gather citizen input.
Rob Corbett said there are many people who approach the
county about licenses and estimated there were 60-100 last
year. He said it would definitely help code enforcement.
And Moody reiterated it would help the assessor.
"There's a lot of people out there not paying their tangible
tax and that's unfair to those who are paying."
Commissioner Sammy Yearty said since the county had
received a $4,000 allotment to fund the study, he thought it
should be completed and made a motion to that effect with
Tony Parker seconding.
The motion passed 4-1 with Bell dissenting. ,

Levy County School District Director of Finance Robert
Durrance said he would like the school board to adopt the
resolution so that the district can start accepting these funds at
the start of the fiscal year Sept. 1.
SThe county commission or other municipal bodies that
collect impact fees will receive a small percentage from the

Continued from front


Warnstadt did not return a call to his office on Tuesday.
Johannesson's attorney is the former interim town attorney
for Yankeetown David LaCroix. Like the former clerk, dep-
uty clerk, two town council members and the town planning
official of Yankeetown, LaCroix resigned.
In the petition demanding the recall of Johannesson, mal-
feasance in office was alleged. The petition showed the people
believed it was malfeasance for the mayor to not take any ac-
tion to stop payment to former Town Attorney Clark Stillwell
- who was LaCroix's predecessor.
LaCroix asserts that Johannesson has a property right in
her office as mayor and she is entitled to due process of law in
regard to any attempt to remove her from that office. Comer
circulated a petition, which was signed by enough people to
bring about the recall election of the mayor.
The petition for recall listed misfeasance and malfeasance
as reasons for recall, but LaCroix notes Johannesson was not
given a chance to disprove those allegations. The mayor did
have a chance to provide a written response to the petition
for recall. Enough people signed the second version of that
petition, with Johannesson's response included, to lead to the
scheduling of a recall election..
SJohannesson is not subject to recall however; LaCroix al-
leges, because she is not a member of the governing body of a
municipality which is governed by the recall statute.
Johannesson refuses to resign as mayor.
The. next step in the process for scheduling a recall election
is for the chief judge of the circuit to schedule this election.
The suit is seeking to stop the town of Yankeetown, Comer
and Asbell from taking further steps toward a recall election.
The .suit seeks to enjoin them temporarily and permanently
from moving forward with the recall election.
As it stands, however, the scheduling of the recall election
now is in the hands of the chief judge for this circuit. Comer,
Asbell and the town of Yankeetown have completed their
tasks.
The judicial assistant for Eighth Judicial Circuit Chief Cir-
cuit Court Judge Frederick D. Smith of Gainesville is absent
until July 3, according to a recorded message at that telephone
number. A spokeswoman in the office of the Eighth Judicial
Circuit Court Administrator said she would contact Smith to
determine how the lawsuit may affect when or if the judge
will set a date for the recall election.
There was no response to the question before deadline.
In other news related to the ongoing turmoil at Yankeetown
with its mayor," the Florida Department of Law. Enforcemerit
reportedly recovered papers from dumpsters near Town Hall,
where Johannesson allegedly was photographed as having put
them. Those papers may have been improperly removed from
the realm of public records.
Special agents from the FDLE Gainesville Field Office
have completed an initial review of allegations of impropri-
eties by certain city officials. An investigation into impropri-
eties has been established and will be conducted by agents
from the Gainesville Field Office, FDLE Public Information
Officer Sharon Gogerty said June 20.
FDLE Public Information Officer Sharon Gogerty said the
agency is continuing to review allegations against town of-
ficials, but as of June 19 there had been no decision to move
into a formal investigative mode.

source of income. Her campaign treasurer is Williams. The
other three candidates listed themselves as their treasurers.
Pomeroy's main source of income is A.D. Andrews Nursery.
Barron's main source of income is Andrews Land and Timber,
according to records.
The candidates each gave their reasons for seeking
election.
"I recently moved to Chiefland from Bronson, and I would
like to participate in city government," Houska said as she
explained why she is running for city commission.
"I want to make this a better community," Livingston said.
Pomeroy said he has enjoyed his past two years as a city
commissioner. He gave reasons for seeking reelection.
"I am running for reelection to have a voice in my
community," Pomeroy said. "I love my community. I feel like
I have a lot to offer. I have lived here my whole life and I have
been involved with business in Chiefland."
The current mayor said she is happy to seek election again.
"I love Chiefland," Barron said on her reason for running again
for public office. "I like the direction it's going and I want to
continue to be a part of that to help make it happen."
