BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Even after the process to create a recall
election was completed, including setting .the
date to be Aug. 8, a June 29 ruling by Levy
County Circuit Court Judge Maurice Giunta
ended the hope of Yankeetown voters for
choosing a new mayor.
He granted a temporary injunction to halt
the recall election. Within 30 days, the judge
may grant a permanent injunction against the
recall election of Mayor Joanne Johannesson.
It would have been the first time voters could
have chosen Johannesson because she ran
unopposed in the November 2005 election.
After more than two hours with two attorneys
telling the judge why they believed their side
of the issue was correct, Giunta ruled that the
mayor is not part of the governing body of
Yankeetown, because she is in the executive
branch of that town's government. She only
votes to break a tie.
Even if she had been eligible for recall,
Giunta chose to believe David LaCroix,
Johannesson's attorney, that the specifics
for misfeasance and malfeasance were not
detailed enough for the recall. LaCroix was
the interim town attorney before he resigned a
couple of months ago.

Smith said the people of Yankeetown
ought to have a right to vote for their mayor.
The recall effort, Smith said, was about
government's actions. It was not about
development.
Johannesson said she felt relieved after
she won her bid to stop the recall election
and thanked LaCroix. LaCroix said he felt
good about the ruling and that he believed
the judge did the right thing.
In presenting his arguments before the
judge, Smith found an opportunity to share
some of the sordid details about Yankeetown
and an alleged secret land deal between
former Yankeetown City Councilwoman
Helen Ciallella.
When former Yankeetown Attorney Clark
Stillwell billed the town for performing work
for the developer of a project next to the
Withlacoochee River, Smith said the mayor
should have questioned it. Those bills were
approved by town council for paymerit, but
the mayor had the power to veto that vote.
Last November, when Johannesson ran
unopposed for mayor, she never raised the
issue of possible development, Smith said.
The alleged secret land deal with Ciallella,
who is Johannesson's friend, was never
mentioned, the attorney added as he indicated
his belief that the mayor knew about that
deal.

Levy property values skyrocket


BYJEFF M. IoASON
STAFF WRITER
A 43 percent increase in
Levy County property value
in one year results after 18
months of unprecedented
growth in sales activity and
market value, according
to Levy County Property
Appraiser Francis Akins.
Property value in Levy
County was about $1.6 billion
last year. It is approximately
$2.3 billion this year,
according to records.
Deed Processor Helen
Addison told about some hot
spots for property sales in
Levy County that have sent
numbers off the charts. One
area is unbelievable for the
amount of activity and the
differences in prices for the
same pieces of property.
Rainbow Lakes Estates is


the subdivision that takes
the cake for big increases,
although Addison said the
trend is
catching
on to
other
areas
in the
county.
The
change
in actual
sales
prices at
FRANCIS AKINS Rainb
Rainbow
Lakes is startling and it
affects property values of
neighboring subdivisions as
well as shaking the whole
county for property value.
Overall. in Levy County,
the number of land sales.
have increased dramatically


since 2003. The year for
the property appraiser's
office ends in October. In
2003, Addison recorded an
Average of 230 to 250 deed
sales per month. From May
to September of 2005, the
range was 900 to 950 deeds
recorded per month.
Every deed that is
processed may have added
documents related to it,
including divorce decrees and
death certificates, Addison
added.
While the whole county
showed significant growth in
real property sales through
2005, Rainbow Lakes Estates
reflected a phenomenal
record.
The average sale price for
one-acre from lots sold in
2004 was $12,730 in Rainbow
Lakes Estates.


The average sale price for
one-acre from lots sold in
2005 was $25,460 in Rainbow
Lakes Estates. That is exactly
a 100 percent increase in
average price for one acre.
It becomes even more
peculiar for one-quarter
acre sales in Rainbow Lakes
Estates.
In 2004, a quarter-acre sold
at an average price of $8,985.
In 2005, a quarter-acre sold at
an average price ,of $32,236.
That is almost a 400 percent
increase in price, and it
shows that a quarter-acre was
selling for a higher price than
a full acre. This is through
one company. The rest of the
market in that subdivision
was more reasonable, Akins
noted.
That subdivision went from
an appraised value of about


$9.9 million to an appraised
value of almost $33 million.
While the heyday of real
estate sales was frantic- for
the past 1.8 months, it appears
as if the market is settling.
Addison said sales from
October 2005 into June of
2006 have almost dropped
in half with average deed
recordings being between
400 to 450 per month.
About 90 to 95 percent
of these sales, Akins said,
are from in-state residents.
Many buyers are coming
from Miami, Tamarac, Port
St. Lucie and other parts of
Southeast Florida.
Another occurrence in
Rainbow Lakes Estates is the
reselling of deeds, Addison
said. Of the 602 deeds

CFCC continues five-year growth trend


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Central Florida Community
College's Levy County Center
is the CFCC education center
that is the farthest away from
the main campus in Ocala of
the four CFCC sites.
The state funds CFCC
to serve Levy, Citrus and
Marion counties.
Other than the main campus
in Ocala and the LCCQ the
other CFCC institutions
are the Hampton Education
Center in Ocala; the Appleton
Museum ofArt, in Ocala; and,
the CFCC Citrus Campus in
Lecanto.
While the CFCC Levy
County Center is far from
Ocala, and despite this center
currently being housed in a
storefront of the Save-Way
Shopping Center in Chiefland,
it continues its five-year
growth trend, according to
CFCC LCC Director Rayanne
Giddis.
Initially located in Bronson
in 1982, this center opened
in Chiefland in 1993. Since
1991, the Levy County
School Board has been in a
cooperative agreement with
CFCC to administer adult
GED programs there.
The center currently

labs, a community room and
a career resource lab.
It provides opportunities
for people to take classes for
college credit, continuing
education, corporate training,
GED classes and vocational
classes for business and
service industries.


Among the highlights for
the 2004-05 school year,
CFCC LCC:

started a new corporate
training initiative in Levy
County that generated almost
$14,000 in revenue through

Bronson and Williston
enrolled 109 students, in
various continuing education
classes
provided 256 students
with child care training
trained and graduated
99 students as Patient Care
Technicians
In regard to learning about
business practices, some
employees of Romac Lumnber
recently coiipleted classes at
the center to improve their
skills, Giddis said.
Giddis said a partnership
with Chiefland High School
this coming year allows
seniors to take training
through the CHS Health
Academy and the CFCC
Levy County Center to earn
their Emergency Medical
Technician certification,
which they will receive after
taking state tests.
Also, CFCC students
can earn Certified Nursing
Assistant status at the CFCC
.LCC, Giddis said.
"The college is looking
forward to continuing to have
a real presence and serving
the needs of this area," Giddis
said, adding she is happy with

Chiefland gets taste of culture


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
A valiant effort to share a representation of art
from the Appleton Museum of Art with people
in Chiefland brought several visitors to the Levy

representations of oil

This display may allow more students to see

a potential to open the gallery for viewing by
the general public as well.

While the prints are not as large as the

ceramics are two-dimensional rather than
three-dimensional, the experience from
viewing these prints can still move people.

O'Steen Camp placed flags
To the editor:
In response to Jeff M. Hardison's article June 8, 2006,
"History in the Cemetery." He found Confederate flags
placed next to two headstones and thought they may have
been placed as a part of Memorial Day remembrances.
The John Hance O'Steen Camp 770 of the Sons of the
Confederate Veterans, located in Trenton, travel once a year
to each cemetery and place Confederate Battle flags on all
known Confederate veterans' graves within the tri-county
area.
One of the SCV organization goals is to find, identify, and
place a headstone on each Confederate veteran's grave. We
want to have each veteran recognized and honored for what
they did and one way is to place battle flags every year so
the public will not forget them.
Robert Allen,.his granddaughter, Cor Allen, and Lindon
Lindsey had placed the battle flags on 148 graves as part of
their dedication to honor all Confederate veterans.The John
Hance O'Steen Camp meets every third Tuesday night at the
Bell Community Center at 7 p.m. and the public is invited.

Let's go back to old gas

To the editor:
Sometime ago it was said that the lead in our gasoline was
hazardous to our health. So some chemist found a formula
that would destroy the lead.
Then they found out that the formula was even worse than
the lead. So someone invented the cabalystic [sic] converter
that would bur up the fumes from this formula before it left
the exhaust system.
Of course that was when we had auto inspection and the
converters were checked. It has been sometime since these
converters have been checked.
I wonder just how many are working and how many have
been removed becausesome people said that the converters
took away from.their gas mileage.
.Think of how much pollution is being created every hour.
I believe we should go back to the regular gas. But of
course that is up to those citizens who are being paid to pro-
tect the American people.

Can chief back up figures?
To the editor:
In the article written by your reporter, JeffHardison, (Po-
lice chief creates ordinance, June 22, 2006), he indicates that
Chief Douglas refers to an amount that has trillions of dol-
lars in it, with $491 billion in interest in it, that would help
fund his project without insurance rates going up. This is
contained in his statement about billing insurance companies
for accident investigation without raising consumer's rates.
What I would like to know, and your reporter should find,
out, exactly what ACCOUNT is the chief talking about? The
chief is throwing around figures that I do not think he can
back-up. An account with TRILLIONS (with an "s" on the
end) OF DOLLARS. I think the Florida state budget is only
$60 billion, so exactly where is this magical account that has
TRILLIONS of dollars in it, untouched by claims, that is
earning $500,000,000,000 (1/2 billion in interest yearly)?

One year later, I'm still here


calendar did not
have to flip for
me to know it has
been a year since I left all
that was familiar and headed
off on life's next adventure.
With each passing week,
I was acutely aware that two
months had passed; then
six months; 10 months; and
lastly a year.
I was driving back from
my first county commission
meeting and I had to call
Denise with my observation.
"Same people, same
problems," I said.
No matter where you are,
the issues that face local
government are invariably
the same. People hate taxes;
they want more bang for
their buck and they believe
a conspiracy theory exists to
quash John Q. Public.
What have I learned in the
past 12 months since I came
to Levy County?
Florida is not all sandy
beaches and tourist
attractions. Driving through
rural Levy County looks
oddly like Georgia flat land,
minus the red clay. Instead
of poultry houses dotting
the landscape, I see acres
of watermelons, peanuts
or herds of cows.. It is
comforting to be in a rural
environment. The older I get,
the more averse I become to
"going to the city."
The people here are proud
of their heritage and their
work ethic. They boast of
being Crackers and see no
degradation in it. When I
moved to Georgia, the term
redneck was derogatory, as
was'cracker. It was akin to
honky, when you wanted to
ruffle someone's feathers.
But here it is an appellation
worn with honor. I learned
that quickly.
I was amazed to learn you.
have had comprehensive
land use and zoning plans in
effect for years, and it takes
a lengthy process to change
anything. The codes are
stringent, yet protective--a
necessary evil, in this day
and time.


THINKING OUT
LOUD





Carolyn Risner


I have lived and worked in
areas where no zoning was
in effect and farmers burned
county commissioners in
effigy when they proposed
drafting land use plans.
The commissioners
kowtowed and a short time
later, every type of polluting
industry known to mankind
was seeking to make that
county its home--because
there were no zoning
restrictions. Levy Countians
are fortunate to live in
a plack'where pist aid .
present leaders have been.
visionaries.
I love winter here. Moving
from an area to where it
often hit sub-zero temps,
I thought Georgia winters
were fabulous until I arrived
here.
I had my heat on less than
30 days all winter and I am
acclimatizing to the summer
heat--a different heat from
your Georgia neighbor.
I have learned Ken
was right: you have to be
prepared for hurricanes.
I now keep bottled water,
flashlights and battery-
powered radios within reach.
A year ago I would have
taken my chances.
It is more laid back here
than anywhere else I have
ever lived.
If people are trying to
keep up with the Joneses, I
haven't met them and I don't
want to.
Most people I have
encountered have been quite
content with who they are
and what they have. And for
those who aren't and tend to
put on airs, you're missing
the most important moments
of your life.
One of the biggest
drawing cards that lured me


here was
the beach
and while
Cedar
Key isn't
everyone's
idea of fun
in the sun,
I find it one
of the most


soothing,
relaxing places I can go
when I need to get away.
There is nothing I enjoy
more than my days off with
my chair in water's edge,
reading until the tide has
disappeared and evening
falls. If I didn't have the
need to earn a living, I could
easily see myself being a
beach bum doing nothing.
I don't know why Howard
Sprague had such a hard
time of it all those years ago
when.he left Mayberry.
'It's been a yeai of ;
change...a year of personal
growth and the time has
soared.
Newspapers are virtually
the same no matter where
you go. It is the people
who make the difference.
For the last year, I have
been on probation with the
community. I hope now you
knowing something of my
character and believe I want
fairness and equality in all
that is done in the pages of
the Levy County Journal.
Homesick? Not really.
There have been times
when I was lonesome but
never lonely. I have always
enjoyed my own company
and find contentment with
filling my time with books
and home projects.
I am content-sometimes
even happy. I am proud of
my newspaper; proud of
what I have achieved in a
year but I can't, help but
reminisce and even long for
home on occasion. But like
Motel 6, I know they keep
the porch light on for me.
One year. An anniversary.
A milestone.
And the future? I don't
know. I can't predict.
Only now. The present.
And I'm still here.

e h Serif' toerSuspicious incident investigated in South Levy


I NOf scams anv nn oov s-

Of scams andfloods


and welcome
to the Sheriff's
Comer. To
start, I have
a scam to tell
you about. The
information
comes to us
out of Nassau
County and
centers around
lottery checks.
In this
case, the
victim received a letter from
Reliance Group Awards
Inc. stating that he had won
$ 390,000. The letter went
on to instruct him to send a
check for $ 4,250 to make
sure his winnings were
insured.
However, the victim
was sent a check for the
amount of $ 4,250 from
the company. The victim
was to cash the check and
send the money back using
Money Gram. The victim
verified that the check was
not fraudulent. The victim
deposited the check into
his account and sent two
separate money orders using
Money Gram to a Sanda
Heath in Vancouver, BC.
Several days later the
victim's bank advised that
the check was worthless and
the victim was responsible
for the $ 4,250. The bank
withdrew $ 4,250.00 from
his account. We have learme
that this scam has been
experienced in a number of
areas and is therefore, on-
going in Florida. We have
questions about Money
Gram and the Reliance
Group Awards, Inc. arid I '
will report on this when we.
know more about them.
Next, I'd like to start a
short topic on the flooding
issues that exist during
tropical storms, hurricanes
and/or high water events.
As you know many of
our citizens are directly
threatened by flooding on an
annual basis. These are very
serious events that require
thought and precautions. So
I'd like to give you some
safety tips that have to do
with floods and the danger
they represent
Drowning is the number
one cause of flood deaths.
Most occur during flash
floods. With that in mind,
know that six inches of
moving waters can knock
you off your feet. So use a
pole or stick to make sure
that the ground is still there
before you go through an
area where the water is not'


flowing and never walk
through flowing waters.
SPlease remember to never
drive through a flooded area.

JOHNNY SMITH






LEVY COUNTY SHERIFF

You can't see the bottom
and don't know if holes
have formed. More people
drown in their cars than
anywhere else. Don't drive
around road barriers. Roads
and bridges wash out. Stay
away from power lines and
.electrical wires. Water is a
great conductor of electricity.
Please report downed
power lines to your utility
company or local emergency
management office. If you
evacuate before the storm
or event, turn off your
electricity when you return
to the house if you didn't
when you evacuated. Some
appliances, like televisions,
can shock you even after
they have been unplugged.
Don't use appliances or
motors that have gotten wet.
Another aspect of flooding
that some people don't think
about has to do with the'
large numbers of animals
d thai are displaced from their
homes and move to areas
where people are. This
includes snakes and other
wild animals. Be careful
when picking up items in
your yard or house when
water is high. Use a stick or
pole and/origloves.tolpick up
items.
After a flood, the ground
and floors are covered with
debris including broken
bottles and nails. These can
penetrate your skin and even
shoes or boots. Also floors
and stairs that have been
covered with mud can be
extremely slippery.
In addition, be alert for
gas leaks. Use a flashlight
to inspect for damage.
Don't smoke or use candles,
lanterns or open flames
unless you are sure that the .
gas has been turned off and
the area has been aired out.
Be very alert to the fact the
carbon monoxide exhaust
can kill. Use a generator
or other gasoline-powered
machine outdoors. This also
includes camping stoves etc.
SHope some of these items
help. Be careful. Take care.

There was no sign of forced
entry into Yankeetown Town
Hall on June 29. Someone
used a copy machine, howev-
er, at a time other than normal
town hall hours, according to
a report concerning this "sus-
picious incident."
Investigators from the
Levy County Sheriff's Of-
fice found copies of zoning
requests and other mate-
rial in the copy machine at
the city office, according to
LCSO Capt. Chuck Bastak.
These documents were from
requests that the Yankeetown
Town Council had not ap-
proved yet, LCSO Sgt. Scott
Tummond said.
These were of no conse-
quence, however, because it
was public information and
it was not confidential infor-
mation, Tummond said. Also,
lacking any sign of forced en-

Williston Animal Control
issues reminder
Williston Animal Control
Supervisor Tom Riddle re-
minds people that it is the
time of year for Williston
residents to license their do-
mestic animals. Dogs, cats,
ferrets and non-poisonous
snakes that are kept as pets
within the city limits must all
be licensed in the city.
All pet licenses expired
June 30, according to city or-
dinance.
"If for any reason Animal
Control comes in contact with
your pet at home or otherwise
and it does not have a valid
pet tag, you could be issued
a citation with a $35 fine,"
Riddle wrote. "The purpose
of licensing is to reunite you
and your pet as soon as pos-
sible, not so we can ticket
you. In my 13-plus years
enforcing animal regulations
for the City of Williston I
have always tried to get com-
pliance from people without
writing citations and this has
worked out well, but there are
a whole lot more animals in
this city that come through
our shelter every day that do
not have any identification
whatsoever."
Animals that come to the
shelter are either euthanized
or adopted, Riddle said.
The pet tags cost $5. They
can be obtained at the police
department, or call animal
control.

Crabby life pays off for Dwight Redmond


BY AMANDA DEPOTTY
CORRESPONDENT
In Georgia, on Feb. 13,
1930, a lifetime of adventure
began for Dwight Redmond.
At the. age of eight,
Redmond and his family left
Georgia behind and moved
to Live Oak. Two years later
they moved to Greencove
Springs for four years, and
finally moved to Lakeland.
This location shuffle would
set the pace for the rest of
Redmond's life.
After high school,
Redmond went to the
University of Tulsa on a
football scholarship. He then
graduated Florida Southern
College after serving in the
US Army as a paratrooper in
1950. He attended boot camp
in South Carolina, and then
went to Fort Benton for jump
school. He also attended
special schools to learn
demolition and artillery but
was discharged after injuring
his knee on a jump.
Redmond tried many
different jobs after his
service. He worked for
Lincoln Mercury Division
in Jacksonville, followed by
Falcon Seaboard Drilling
Company in Lafayette, La.
before returning to Florida.
In Crystal River, Redmond
met Ralph Newton and
started a friendship that
would change the rest of his
life. Newton owned a crab
plant and asked his new
friend if he would like to
work for him.
"I knew absolutely nothing
about the crab industry,"
Redmond says with a laugh.
"But it didn't take long to
learn."
In June of 1965 Redmond
started in the crab industry
in Cedar Key. He learned
his trade quickly and quickly
became ra1,ttlosi fitendf of
Newton's". 'So close 'in- fact,
that Newton asked Redmond
to travel to South America
and set up crab processing
plants.
From October of 1968 until
August of 1969 Redmond set
up production of a plant in
Maracaibo, Venezuela. The
Maracaibo plant produced
25,000 pounds of crab meat
a day, six days a week. The
plant became the largest
producer of crab meat in the
world, and the best selling
crab product in the United
States.
In 1973 Redmond moved
on to Colombia, building a
plant on the Magdalena River.
During this time, Redmond
traveled to Germany to
represent Venezuela in the

World Seafood Expo. He
traveled with others, but,
was individually honored
by the country he had aided
economically by being
bestowed the name "Don
Dwight Redmond."
In 1975 Redmond opened
'another small plant in
Guayaquil, Ecuador, and,
after hiring a local to run the
plant, Redmond traveled to
Banju, Gambia, in Africa.
SRedmond and Newton
decided not to open a new
plant in Africa due -to the
presence of a Japanese
shrimp factory, deciding
to let the existing factory
process the meat and letting
Newton's company buy it
from them to sell back in the
States.
He left Africa to set up
another crab plant in 1978
in Manila, Philippines. A
year after setting up the
plant, numerous problems
prompted Redmond to sell
it.
In additionto theproblems,
agv-:lih.tpla nt, (Newton had
begun, 'having ,-strokes-, and
advised his old friend and
business associate to begin
selling the numerous plants
he had set up over the years.
Redmond also occupied his
time in Brazil by buying
thousands of pounds of
freshwater catfish out of the
Amazon River to ship to the.
United States.
On January 1, 1980, Ralph
Newton died. Redmond sold
all ofthe crabplants exceptthe
original plant in Maracaibo,
but by now there were four
other crab plants competing
in the area. Later on that year,
when Newton's youngest
son bought a crab and fish
plant in Palatka, Florida,
Redmond moved back to
the United States to run it.

For four years Redmond
returned to Maracaibo every
eight to ten weeks to help run
the plant. In 1982 the plant
in Maracaibo was sold, with
the one in Palatka selling two
years later. At the beginning
of 1985, Redmond was asked
to set up another crab plant in
a small town near Salvador,
Brazil. In 1986 he traveled*
to Paris, France, attending the
World Exhibition of Seafood,
this time as a representative
of Brazil.
He stayed in Brazil for
five years before returning
to Florida. There he met
Carolyn Meeks, a local from
Ellzey, and the two married.
They lived in Crystal River
with a weekend house in
Chiefland.
He also bought the
Seasweet Crab Meat
Company in Crystal River,


Newton's original plant.
In March of 1993, the
Redmonds' house in Crystal
River was destroyed in a
storm. They were renting
out their house in Chiefland
but were forced to ask the
couple renting the house to
leave. The couple moved to
Chiefland, making Redmond
travel back and forth to
Crystal River to work.
In May of 1994 he finally
sold the company. He was
offered several consultation
jobs from crab plants all
over the world, but Redmond
declined because of his age.
He had traveled all over the
world and felt it was time to
settle down and relax.
Between them, the
Redmonds have six children:
a son and a daughter
who graduated from the
University of South Florida,
a daughter who received the
2003 U.S. Female Drama of
the Year award, another son
who is an engineer for Sprint,
a daughter who majored in
nutrition from the University
of Florida and a son who
very recently returned from
Afghanistan..
The Redmonds are proud of
the adults they have reared and
the great accomplishments
their children have already
made.
They are also very proud
of their seven grandchildren.
Many miles and tons of crab
later, Dwight Redmond has
lived a rich, full life. Now
Redmond is glad to stay
home and leave adventures
and traveling to his kids. By
now, he surely'has earned a
rest.

Disabled students see

opportunities after high school

BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
A program introduced at Williston High School this
year, and which may spread to all other Levy County
high schools, gives disabled students opportunities to see
a future for themthelves after they leave high school.
The Florida High School/High Tech program was
created to provide high school students who have
physical, emotional, learning or other disabilities with
chances to explore jobs or post secondary education
leading to technology-related careers, said Emily Hough
of the Center for Independent Living of North Central
Florida.
Hough told the Levy County School Board about the
program during its June 20 meeting.
Twenty-six students were involved with the program at
WHS this year, Hough said. To enroll in this extracurricular
program, the student must be planning to earn a regular
diploma, they must maintain at least a 2.0 grade point
average ("C"), and they must be interested in seeking a
high tech career.
These students toured Central Florida Community
College and the University of Florida to help them see
what they needed to know before entering this phase of
their educational path. They were shown the disability
resource centers at the colleges.
Field trips to the Kennedy Space Center, Disney World
and Busch Gardens also gave the students chances to
learn about high tech jobs in those theme parks. Many
of these students are participating in summer intern
programs now, Hough said. One of those interns is at the
Williston Municipal Airport. He has joined the Navy and
hopes to become a pilot.
Levy County ESE Director Rosalind Hall said she
hopes the program is instituted at the other high schools
in the county.
In other news related to the school district, Levy County
Education Association President Cindy Roach asked the
board to try to finish negotiating the annual contracts for
teachers and other school workers before the start of the
school year.
The LCEA negotiates for educators as well as for non-
teaching workers in the county school district.
It has become a tradition for the final contracts to not
be completed in Levy County until after the teachers and
other school district employees already have started their
jobs each year, Roach said, although this is a tradition she
would like to see changed.

Thanks IRS! The VA would have had to search through
more than 30 addresses, including a month in Australia and
a few different hotels, to send me this note. My couple of
weeks in what was West Germany is not important, because
I returned to that old address. The Australia thing was an.
address-changing month, though.
As it is, I didn't get to read the letter concerning the laptop
theft for about a month because I am away from my Pinellas
Park home. My wife Sharon and I are considering relocating
to Levy County. We celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary
this year. I'm not saying which day, though, because there
are evil people out there who lie and steal, and apparently
the more they discover about me, the more they can pretend
to be me.
That's enough about me and mine.
By the way, 26,000 U.S. Department of Agriculture

Gainesville attorney disbarred


Michael Wayne Jones, a
Gainesville attorney, has been
disbarred from practicing
law in Florida, effective
30 days following a May
12 court order. (Admitted
to practice: 1980) Among
several Bar violations, Jones
engaged in conduct involving
dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or
misrepresentation; violated
some of the rules regulating


Trust Accounts; and failed
to act with diligence and
promptness in representing
a client. (Case nos. SC04-43,
SC05-594 & SC05 899).
The Florida Bar, the state's
guardian for integrity of the
legal profession, announced
recently that the Florida
Supreme Court in recent
court orders reprimanded
three, disbarred nine, and


suspended 13 attorneys.
As an official agency
of the Supreme Court of
Florida, The Florida Bar and
its Department of Lawyer
Regulations are charged with
administering a statewide
disciplinary system to
enforce Supreme Court rules
of professional conduct of the
79,000-plus lawyers admitted
to practice in Florida.

If you suffered damage in the 2005 hurricanes and have
been unable to settle claims with your insurance provider,
help is on the way.
A free mediation program is available to Florida homeown-
ers who suffered damage from the hurricanes and have not
been able resolve their insurance claims.
The program is free to policyholders and seeks to achieve
quick and fair settlements for storm victims, stresses Tom
Gallagher, Florida's chief financial officer, who initiated the
mediation service.
Insurance companies are required to notify homeowners
whose claims are in dispute of their right to mediation. Once
this notification has been made, the company has 21 days to
settle the claim, otherwise the policyholder can call the De-
partment of Financial Services to request that mediation be
scheduled.
Mediation can help a hurricane victim avoid the lengthy and
costly option of going to court. The mediation is non-binding
in those cases where the homeowner chooses not to settle.
Court-approved mediators are provided through the Collins
Center for Public Policy.
Storm victims can' learn more about mediation' by calling
(800) 22-STORM.

Understanding your taxes and millage


Higher values may


mean less taxes


mills this year to generate the
same revenue. Here is how
that works. If a person owned
a house worth $150,000
and they used the $25,000
Homestead Exemption, then


he orshewouldhave $125,000
worth of taxable value. If
the millage for the county
commission, school board,
city and water management
district were a cumulative 20


mills, then they would pay
$2,500 in taxes because
the taxpayer must pay $1 for
each $1,000 worth of taxable
value for each mill.
A 20 percent reduction in


the millage rate would equal
16 mills and it would generate
$2,000 in taxes from the
appraised taxable property
that was equals $120,000.


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
The big increase appraised
property value in Levy County
means the various taxing
authorities can generate the
same number of tax dollars
with lower millage rates.
This number of mills is
known as the Rollback Rate
and it varies from taxing
authority to taxing authority.
For instance, the Otter Creek
City Council may not be
able to reduce its millage at
the same percentage as the
Chiefland City Commission,
because property value in
Otter Creek may not have
increased to the same degree
as Chiefland property.
The amount of property
taxes paid by a landowner is
determined by the value of the
taxable property multiplied
by the millage rate.
There are exemptions,
however, which make some
property free from being
taxed. Therefore, the tax
bill is equal to the appraised
taxable property value rather
than simply the appraised
property value.
The best known exemption
is Homestead Exemption.
This allows the first $25,000
of value of property to not be
taxed.
There are 15 other possible
exemptions. People must
apply for exemptions within
a time limit and exemptions
may not necessarily be
automatically renewed.


Other than the Homestead
Exemption, a widow will
receive another $500 of tax
freedom. A double widow,
that is a woman who has lost
two husbands to death, has yet
another exemption. A totally
and permanently disabled
veteran has a complete
exemption from property
taxes, but he or she must still
pay the special assessments
for ambulance, fire / and
landfill. The same is true for
the totally and permanently
disabled non-veteran. Other
exemptions exist for people
who are blind, for couples
who are both blind, for
widowers and paraplegics.
There is a senior additional
homestead exemption for
people who are older than 65,
which can be an exemption for
as much as another $25,000
depending on income.
While ,it is not an
exemption, there is some
relieffor agricultural interests,
too. That is on land which
is classified for agricultural
uses
Truth In Millage
Another factor that comes
into the picture as the taxing
authorities consider how
much millage to. levy is the
Truth In Millage or TRIM
notice.
If the value of an area for a
taxing district was $500 last
year and it is $1,000 this year,
and that taxing district had a
millage rate of 4 mills, then
it could reduce the rate to 2


Inglis has highest municipal millage


BY JEFF M. HARDISON
STAFF WRITER
Millage. That one word strikes a cold chord through the
hearts of taxpayers.
There are more than a dozen different agencies authorized
to levy ad valorem property taxes on property in Levy County.
Following are the millage rates currently imposed by each
taxing authority. For every $1,000 worth of taxable property,
1 mill equals $1 in property taxes.
The Homestead Exemption Act in Florida means property
owners who call Florida home, and who do not claim a
tax exemption on property in other states, can claim a tax
exemption on the first $25,000 worth of value of one piece of
property in Florida.:For instance, a person who owns a house
and land worth $125,000 and who must pay a 1 mill tax would
pay $125 without homestead exemption, but they would pay
$100 with the exemption.
State
State Board of Health .077 of 1 mill
Suwannee River Water Management District .4914 of 1
mill
Southwest Florida Water Management District .422 of 1
mill
SWFWMD Withlacoochee Basin .265 of 1 mill
County
Levy County Board of County Commissioners 8.923 mills
Levy County School Board 5.922 mills
Levy County School Board Capital Improvement 2 mills
Cities
Bronson 3.2 mills
Cedar Key 3.25 mills
Cedar Key Water and Sewer District .545 of 1 mill
Chiefland 4.939 mills
Fanning Springs 2 mills
Inglis 5.5 mills
Otter Creek 3 mills
Rainbow Lakes Municipal Estates 2.85 mills
Williston 5.5 mills
Yankeetown 1.956 mills
Breakdown
This breaks down to show each person who owns a $125,000


house and who uses the $25,000 Homestead Exemption pays
$1,741.94 in the county for their $100,000 worth of appraised
taxable property, because most of them live in the SRWMD.
The county dwellers who live in Swiftmud and have $100,000
worth of taxable property would pay $1,734.40.
The following city residents will see bills that look like this
- based on $100,000 worth of appraised taxable value. They
must pay the county ad valorem taxes as well as the municipal
taxes.
Following are the 2005 millage rates for property valued
at $100,000 after adding county and water management
millages:
Bronson $2,061.34
Cedar Key $2,1208.40
Cedar Key Water/Sewer $1,795.84
Chiefland $2,235.24
Fanning Springs $1,941.34
Inglis 5.5 mills $2,310.90
Otter Creek $2,041.34
Rainbow Lakes Municipal Estates $2,045.90
Williston $2,310.90
Yankeetown $1,956.00
Economic Development $860.90
Suwannee River Water Management District part of the
county $1,741.30
Southwest Florida Water Management District part of the
county $1,760.90
Fire Assessments
Fire assessments do not get billed to parcels located within
city limits.
Ambulance service costs $75 per unit. Landfill costs $37
per unit. Single-family residential fees are $34 per unit for
fire assessment.
Vacant or agricultural land of 160 acres or less pays $4.90.
Over 160 acres is $4.90 plus 2-cents per added acre up to a
maximum of 640 acres. Example: 185 acres is $4.90 + (.02 x
25=.50) = $5.40.
Non-residential property pays fire assessments based on
square feet. For 1,999 square-feet or less pays $33. There are
incremental fire assessments leading up to $248 for 10,000 to
24,999 square feet. Everything at 25,000 square feet and more
pays $813 for a fire assessment.


improper manner.
This whole process took away the right of the people to
be an informed electorate, Smith said, and it was done by
subterfuge.
Johannesson won the fight against a recall election because
malfeasance and misfeasance was not proved. Malfeasance
is the evil conduct or illegal deed that is wholly illegal or
unlawful. Misfeasance is the performance of a legal act in an
improper or unlawful manner.
Smith said that Johannesson committed fraud by allowing
the payment of Stillwell's bill for work on the "Marina
Project." Johannesson's failure to do her job as mayor and
to perform a continual review of the town's operation was
misfeasance, Smith said. Her failure to consider more people
for the open town council seats is misfeasance as well, Smith
said.
Although LaCroix cited a 1982 Attorney General's Opinion
where that office said the mayor ofMiramar was not a member
of the governing body, Giunta referred to the structure of
Yankeetown's charter.
In the event of the absence of a mayor or deputy mayor, the
town council can appoint a mayor. When there is a council
seat to be filled, however, the mayor can only recommend and
the town council can approve or reject the person to fill the
vacancy, Giunta noted for both attorneys to hear -just before
he stated his ruling and dropped the gavel to kill the recall
election.

office, according to a June 28 letter from Deputy General
Counsel Nathan Adams IV.
"Although we expect city council members to rise to this
challenge, the Governor will have no choice but to consider
suspending from office any member for 'malfeasance,
misfeasance, neglect of duty, habitual drunkenness,
incompetence, or permanent inability to perform official
duties,'" Nathan wrote, "to declare a state of financial
emergency if the council refuses or fails to undertake its
public responsibilities, and/or to appoint members to the town
council board."
"I can no longer be a part of a governing body that continues
to use unethical conduct and political backstabbing for its own
goals," Pate wrote in her letter of resignation.
One of Johannesson's statements to Bush in a June 26
letter was false, Pate noted. She said the mayor claimed there
were not people to sign checks, when Pate's signature and
Johannesson's are enough for the town to pay its bills, Pate
wrote.
After Johannesson attempted to end the meeting that never
began on July 3, one outspoken woman went to the podium
and asked for the mayor to resign.
Joyce Richards began reading a letter that was written by
Tina Yanke. but was stopped by a deputy who asked the woman
to cease and desist, because the meeting was adjourned.
Attorney John Smith, inpart ofhis response toJohannesson's
complaint that won an injunction against a recall election,
captured the events of the past few months from the perspective


of people who want another mayor.
"In the las' year, the town of Yankeetown has gone from
a sleepy community in the low coastal region of West
Central Florida to a town in shock from the events that have
occurred," Smith wrote. "The problem is not the prospect of
condominiums/timeshares. The problem- is the irresponsible
and unfathomable action of the governing officers of this
town, and foremost among those governing officials is Mayor
Joanne Johannesson."
The mayor said the meeting was called under the governor's
order to do so. Pate chose to resign. The mayor said that since
the governing body cannot conduct town business without a
quorum, she must rely on Bush to step in.
"Now, the governor will make decisions for the town,"
Johannesson said.

recorded in that first year of the rapid sales, there were 141
multiple sales of the same properties. Ninety-five parcels
sold twice in the same year; another 41 sold three times; four
parcels sold four times within the same year and one parcel
was sold five times within the same year.
As for this year there have been only 189 Rainbow Lakes
Estates sales, and 34 of those have been multiple sales of the
same properties within that time span, Addison said. While
Rainbow Lakes is the extreme, this type of selling is happening
all over Levy County.
Vacant property that was selling for $2,000 to $3,000 is
going for $12,000 to $18,000 now with the average being
closer to the $17,000 to $18,000 range:
