ers had been given a recent
tax break to offset non-peak
times when they struggle to
stay afloat and another RV
park would put commercial
owners in direct competition
with the county.
If the park were enhanced,
it would also mean a year-
round attendant which would


add to the county payroll.,
"I'm opposed to it," Yearty
said. "I make a motion to not
pursue the grant for Henry
Beck Park."
Tony Parker immediately
seconded the motion and said
a study needs to be done to
evaluate the impact park im-

said several people opposing

Giving the Gift of Life
HMMIjmmmm


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
Citing concerns about space
and the lack of water recre-
ation, the Levy County Board
of County Commissioners
turned down a $200,000 grant
from the Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Pro-
gram (FRDAP).
Parks and Recreation Di-
rector Matt Weldon received
the county's blessing to ap-
ply for the grant last August
with the intent of improving
camping facilities at Henry
Beck Park.
Preliminary plans called for
adding 35 RV spots, 15 spots
earmarked for tents/primitive
camping, a bathhouse and
two observation decks;
The county would need
to contribute about $96,000,
Weldon said, to enhance the
grant and finance the project.'
Tuesday when Weldon
asked for permission to ac-
cept the grant, Commissioner
Sammy Yearty was first to of-
fer up his concerns.
Yearty said adjacent prop-
erty owners to the park had
called and expressed concern
about the proposed enhance-
ments and added none of
them had been given an op-
portunity to voice their opin-
ions.
He also pointed out the
river was probably the major
attraction to Henry Beck Park
and its use is limited.
Noting its isolation, Yearty
said, "The property is almost
a pristine preserve."
The commissioner further
added that RV park own-


with Yearty and Parker, say-
ing with all the commercial
RV parks in the county, she
did not want to penalize peo-
ple who are trying to make a
living.
Rooks reminded the group
that the board had approved
the conceptual outline Wel-
don presented in August. She
said Weldon's time, the leg-
islators' time and the board's
time had all been wasted on
the pursuit of the grant.
Rooks suggested if this
was a precedent, then the
board needed to start looking
at grants more seriously.
Yearty and Parker both
apologized to Weldon for the
wasted time with Parker add-
ing a project should benefit
the entire community and this
one did not.
Yearty said he had no idea
there was so much opposition
to the park's enhancements.
But Rooks countered that in
all the discussions and plan-
ning concerning the grant, no
one had come forward and
spoke publicly against the
proposal.
Ron Grant of Williston
asked Weldon how refusing
to accept this grant might af-
fect future grant applications,
and was told it shouldn't.
Rooks reminded the board
that in 2004 the state Senate.
only funded the top 100 grant
applications and all of Levy
County's projects ranked 200
or lower and were not eligi-
ble.

CONTRIBUTING WRITER
The Levy County School.
Board determined Tuesday
that an increase in Levy
County property value exists,
alongside a decrease in the
millage rate.
Bob Clemmons explained
to the board that there is a 45
percent increase of property
value in Levy County from
last year.
"Historically, Levy County
has had low property value,"
he said. "If you think of it like
a market correction, that's
basically what's happening
here."
Clemmons said the
proposed required local effort
millage rate is 4.952 and
the proposed school board
millage rate is 2.760.
Clemmons advertised


that the school board will
soon consider a measure to
continue to impose a 2.000
mill property tax for school
improvement expenses in
addition to the school board's
proposed tax of 4.952 mills
for operating expenses.
The advertisement states
that the capital outlay tax
will generate approximately
$4,458,474 to be used towards
various projects including
the new Cheifland Middle
School gymnasium and the
new Williston Middle School
cafeteria.
Another item in the
advertisement was the
proposed measure of
increasing the school board's
property tax levy.
This year's proposed tax
levy is approximately $18.1
million, while last year's was

approximately $12. 8 million.
According to Clemmons, in
order for the school board
to receive the $33 million in
state education grants, the
required portion has increased
by 36.81 percent.
"In my years, this is the
largest number I've seen
here," Clemmons said.
There will be a public
hearing held on Tuesday,
Aug. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Levy
County School Board Office
to discuss both issues. A
decision on both will be made
at this hearing.
In other business,
Clemmons commended the
school board's decision on
raising the price of school
food.

Blackburn's book is pay back to God


BY ASHLEY SHEWEY
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
With a little talent, many
blessings and a whole lot
of faith, Denise Blackburn
shares her love for God within
the pages of a paperback.
Blackburn, 52, has
published her latest
inspirational book, Leaning
on God: For Answered
Prayers which she said is her
gift to the Lord.
"All the books I've written
are to give back to the Lord
what He's given to us," she
said.
Leaning on God, which
came out April 2006, is a
follow-uptoherfirstpublished
book, Honest Prayers.
Blackburn said her first book
is more autobiographical,
based on real prayers she had
written in her journal. She
wanted the second one to be
more uplifting to people.
"It's got real so-called
miracles that happened or
blessings that God has done in
my life and others who have
been close to me," Blackburn
said. "It's more for people
who are young Christians
that don't know the Bible
really well and have, a lot of
questions."
Before inspiring those who
read her books, Blackburn
first had to find inspiration
within herself. That proved
to be a difficult life lesson
which brought her to realize
her great love for God.
Before she wrote Honest

ous time to write her inspirational book.


Prayers, Blackburn attempted
to commit suicide.
"That night when they
admitted me to the hospital,
God came to me," she said.
"He saved me. I have always
been a Christian all of my
life, but I did not know what
the words "saved new life"
meant until that night."
Shortly after, Blackburn


Be water-wise w


BY D.T. PENDLETON
CORRESPONDENT
Reduce, Reuse and
Recycle in the garden is as
much about being thrifty as
it is about gardening.
Water is the cornerstone of
any garden foundation. Even
in the desert, you must have
water. Using water wisely
will help build your garden
to the point where watering
twice a week is a possibility.
SWater underground does
not follow above ground
geography or county lines.
Most water has its own
unique geological geography.
These areas are managed
by Water Management
Districts. These districts
make the rules about area
water. The water district
for most of Levy County is
the Suwannee River Water
Management District. They
print an excellent book
called Water Wise Florida
Landscapes. These books
are available to groups
like garden clubs. Their
phone number is (800) 226-
1066. The Levy County
Agriculture Extension office
may have some as well.
Water has many interesting
qualities, one of which is
that it is hygroscopic. That
simply means it attaches to
itself. When a dry plant is
watered, there is no water
to attach itself to and most
of the water will run out of


the pot but a small portion
of water will cling to soil
particles.
It is important to return
to a very dry plant to water
a second time because this
water will then cling to the
water from the first watering
and this second water will
be water that the plant can
actually absorb.
Of course some plants
will require more water than
others and some plants, like
fancy begonias, like to be
really dry but most plants
like to be a little moist.
Houseplants especially
like to be kept moist (not
soppy wet). This will make
it easier for you to water too
since a little Water will be in
the pot.
It is much harder to
control moisture in the
garden. A good first step is
to plant the proper plant sfor
your garden. Easy for me to
say and just as easy for you
to do.
Reclaimed Water
Reclaimed water, that is,
water that has already been
used once, can be captured
and used again. I use a rain
barrel for my lily bed. It
catches run off water from
the comer of my house. I
just attach a hose to it and
run it out into the bed. This
works even better if you
have gutters to catch more
water. Be sure to place your

overwhelmed with thoughts.
That is when she began
writing her first book.
"It just seemed like my
head was filled up and I had
to write it down," she said. "It
was never stopping."
When it came time for her
to write Leaning on God,
Blackburn said it was just a

barrel on a stepping-stone for
stability, and level it. The rain
barrel could also be raised on
cement blocks and gravity
can help you water.
Other sources of reclaimed
water include dehumidifiers,
leftover cooking water like
pasta and veggie water, left
over liquids like coffee,
soda, water and juice drinks.
I watered a 10 X 10 garden
for many years from leftover
liquids mixed with an equal
amount of water.
It is also important to
perform an irrigation check.
The first,step is to remove
irrigation heads and make
sure they are not clogged.
If they are clogged, clean
them out or replace filters.
The next step is to run each
station or zone. Make sure
the water is going where
you have plants planted. It
may be time to replace old
heads with more appropriate


continuation of the flood of
ideas.
"For the second one [book]
I was like, "why didn't I just
keep going?"' she said. "I had
more to say."
Blackburn's husband,
Kenny, has also written an
inspirational book titled
Blessings. She said she wrote
a couple of the poems in his
book and that it sparked an
interest in writing her own.
"The Bible says, "God
gives you a season,"' said
Blackburn. "He had his
season and I had my season.
I don't know if I'll ever write
again but at least I wrote
those two."
Blackburn said the profits
that she and her husband
make off the books are sent
to people in need.
"We wanted to give to
missions. We wanted to give
to those in need," she said.
"Any money we've ever
collected, we've never kept."
Blackburn said her newest
book along with the others
can be found online at
http://www.amazon.com or
by ordering them through a
bookstore, such as Barnes and
Noble or Books-a-Million.
Blackburn enjoyed writing
her latest book and treasures
the feeling of being able to
inspire someone.
"The moral of the story is
to lean on God for all your
prayers," she said.

heads. Also make sure that
all irrigation heads have the
same pressure. If a couple of
heads are off, it could be an
underground leak.
How do you.find a leak
underground? There are
many signs. Look to.see
if there are plants that are
doing better than others,
could they be getting more
water? Is there an area where
Dollar Weed just won't go
away? Dollar Weed is often
an indicator of excessive
water because it can't live
in dry soil. Does the ground
sink a little in one area when
you walk on it?
Actually finding the leak
is a little more difficult and
definitely messier. It may
even mess up your turf but if
you find a leak, isn't it worth
saving that water?

Joan Street's career choice


BY AMANDA DEPOTTY
CORRESPONDENT
For Joan Street, medicine
was in her bones.
Born to Jack and Mildred
Barth in Dayton, Ohio, Joan
was one of five children and
the first of two girls.
When she was 11, her father
had a heart attack. The doctor
told him that he couldn't
tolerate the cold winters
anymore, so the family
moved for a more welcoming
climate in Fort Meyers.
There she graduated from
high school and fell in love
with Florida.
At 13, Joan started working
with her father, a dentist, in
his office. Mr. Barth trained
his oldest daughter to work
as his chair side assistant.
"He said that I was the first
person he had ever trained
that the first time they assisted
in oral surgery didn't need to
leave the room because they
felt sick or had to pass out,
so he figured I'd probably do
OK in medicine if I wanted to
go that route," she said.
After working in her
father's office, Joan knew
she wanted to pursue a
career in medicine. However,
able to play the clarinet and
the piano, Joan considered
following in her brothers'
footsteps and studying music
professionally. Mr. Barth
encouraged his daughter to do
what she really wanted to do
and not waste her potential.
Wanting to go to either
medical or dental school, Joan
applied to the University of
Florida to complete her pre-
medical courses.
However, doubt about the
status of her father's health
encouraged her to look into
a more financially feasible
education.
Joan withdrew from the

University of Florida and
enrolled in the Lakeland
General Hospital School of
Radiotechnology.
When her father died a year
into her schooling, Joan did
not have to add to her grief by
trying to afford her education.
In the two year program,
Joan attended classes in the
hospital, working student
shifts after her classes.
After her two years, she sat
before the National Registry
and became a Registered
Radiologic Technologist.
After receiving her
certification, Joan went to
work at Orange Memorial
Hospital in Orlando. When
the stress of working in
Orlando began to wear on her,
she returned to Fort Meyers
to live with her mother and
work in a nearby hospital.
There she met Tim Street,


who was stationed in Fort
Meyers with the Coast
Guard. The two married
and briefly moved to Ohio
before 'returning to Florida
and taking a break from their
regular careers.
Tim, Joan and their first
son, Jason, moved to Morgan
City, La. after Tim reenlisted
in the Coast Guard. There,
their son started kindergarten
while Joan began working
weekends at the local hospital.
The hospital in Morgan City
was small, but was the only
emergency room in three
counties. "Sometimes it was
like being in M*A*S*H*,"
she jokes.
The Streets moved to
Gulfport, Miss. but did not
stay long.. .
Always true to Florida,
the family mliovedi''ack to
Fort Meyers when Tim was


discharged in 1983. Their
second son, Falcon, was born
in 1985 and Joan worked
weekends again, spending
the week with her children
while her husband worked on
his associate's degree.
The family moved to
Gainesville and she took a
job in the x-ray department
at the University's Student

Benefit a success
To the editor:
On April 29, at 6:30 a.m., it was foggy and cool, but the
day turned out to be perfect for the benefit. The Clay Pigeon
Benefit Shoot was to benefit the Tri-County Pregnancy
Center. We had 53 shooters registered for the competition. It
was a fun filled day with everyone having a great time.
We want to thank everyone who had any part in making
this benefit a huge success. Thank you Rhino Outdoors for
all your assistance and Chip Webb for a delicious rib and
chicken dinner. Thank you to Williston High School JROTC
and LTB Bob Quint who were out trappers. Thanks to all the
other people who volunteered their time and donated items
to be used for the silent auction.
Thank you to our Corporate Sponsors: Platinum Sponsors:
Food Ranch Stores, Inc., Harley Davidson of Ocala,
Raintree Realty Inc.; Gold Sponsors: V.E. Whitehurst &
Sons, Inc. and Levy Animal Clinic Inc.; Silver Sponsor:
Cone Distributors, Inc.; Bronze Sponsors: Brown & Brown
Insurance and Heath & Jolie Davis.



Thank you for the privilege
To the editor:
It is my desire to thank the good people of Levy County
for the opportunity to work with the students in Levy County
for the past 25 years. Having the privilege of teaching at
Chiefland and Bronson and being the assistant principal and/
or principal for 19 years at Bronson, Cedar Key, Williston
and Chiefland schools were indeed an honor!
No greater privilege can one.have than to be entrusted
with the education and development of our youth. Having
touched the lives of several thousand young people is a
gift that will be forever cherished. And in turn the students,
parents, faculty and staff have had such a tremendous
positive impact on my life to which I am very grateful.
My love and concern for the faculty, staff and students
made it a very difficult decision to change Direction and
accept the challenge of the real estate profession. But I have
enjoyed he opportunity of buying and selling real estate with
Doug and Don King for the past 25 years.
Thank you again for the privilege of working with your
students. And remember, "A change in Direction can be a
great value, if you make it so!"

Now that I
have your attention--and
before I think about the title
of this week's column, I owe
all of you a BIG apology.
But before I do that, let
me tell you why it happened
and then I will tell you what
indeed did happen.
I am numerically chal-
lenged.
I have always been able to
function with basic math-
ematics but when it came
time to determine how x and
y could add up to something,
well, I was lost. I spent most
of Algebra I and Algebra II
in the back of the room with
other math misfits where we
planned parties and won-

one going to Seahorse Key
on Sunday. Why? Because
in my mind Sunday was the

convinced of it. And so I

my radio will only pick up
country stations--my least
favorite genre and I do not
have a CD player, much to
my younger son's chagrin so
I either listen to talk radio or
I talk to myself.
I chose the latter.
Observation One: With the
price of gasoline at $3 a gal-
lon, people have not cut back
on their holiday travels.
1-75 was congested like

Live Oak to Macon with zil-
lions of cars--most of them

and souvenirs.
So people complain and
complain about the price of
gas, and. yet they continue to
drive like it was 1999.
At dinner the other night, a
dining companion said milk
and soda both cost, more than'
gas. Another diner added,
"But I can live without those
things."
Obviously we can't'live
without gasoline, so we
continue to be at the mercy
of the oil conglomerates and
take trips--even when it takes
a week's paycheck to fill up.

Observation Two: If I
stay in the right lane, I am
inevitably in the one where
Grandpa has chosen to do the
minimum 40 mph and when I
make a move to pass him, he
shoots me a bird and speeds
up until I am the one slowing
down traffic behind me.
*****
Observation Three: There's
a lot to see in your own back-
yard.
One day, a real vacation
will be to take the back roads
and turn at every brown his-
torical marker just to see
what's there.

trying to tell me?"' she said.
In her dream, she was in the
middle of a big event with lots
of tents and people. When she
woke up, she realized what
God's message was.
"It just came to me,"
Lockwood said. "It's about
unity, love and embracing
your brother. Then I sat down
and began planning."
The Day of Unity, which
begins at 8 a.m. on Oct. 7,
will have many events for the
community to take part in.
Lockwood designed
the mission statement
after her vision:
"The Day of Unity was
designed to bring all the
residents ofChieflandtogether
as one body of brothers and
sisters. Observations within
this community have led many

Report elder abuse anonymously
Call 1-800-963-5337
Elder abuse is a serious problem both nationally and locally.
Abuse takes many forms: emotional, financial exploitation,
physical, sexual, neglect and self-neglect. Victims are often
hidden behind closed doors, with little hope of assistance or
recognition. Nationally, only 20 percent or less of all elder
abuse and neglect cases are reported.
Often times elder. abuse can be prevented if services are
in the home to assist with caring for the elderly person. The
Elder Helpline, 1-800-963-5337, is a resource available to
assist seniors and their families in knowing all of the services
available to care for the elderly at home.
Its mission is to empower elders, their families and
caregivers to make informed decisions.about aging in place,
in an elder-friendly -iVifonment, with security, purpose and&
dignity.
The Elder Helpline is staffed with Resource Specialists who
are able to discuss elder needs, find a program, service and/or
resource to meet those needs and give information on how
to get connected. Resource Specialists are able to provide
information and referral services on issues such as In- home
Services for Frail Elders; Nutrition and Meal Programs; Adult
Day Care; Housing; Legal Assistance Providers; Recreation;
Education, Health Care; Transportation Providers and many
other topics.
If the problem appears that immediate intervention is
needed, a report to the Florida Elder Abuse Hotline, 1-800-
96-ABUSE (962-2873) should be made.
The abuse hotline is available 24 hours a day and seven days
per week. Callers to the hotline can remain anonymous and

citizens as well."
Lockwood said the events
she has planned are designed
to create unity between the
citizens who participate.
The first event, which
begins at 8 a.m., is the
cleaning of properties which
are considered "eyesores."
Lockwood said she is
trying to contact different
Boy Scout and Girl Scout
troops to help.
Lockwood said residents
will also check 911 address
numbers on various properties
to make sure they can be seen
by emergency personnel.
"This is a problem in
the city," she said. "There
are many homes that they
[emergency] have no clue
where they are."
Stop signs will also be
checked to make sure they are
free of obstacles so drivers
can see cars coming.
"They're [stop signs]
being reported everyday,"
Lockwood said, "so we really
need to take a look at this."
At 11 a.m. events will


begin at the Train Depot
Park. Refreshments will be
sold, area groups will share
literature and introduce
themselves. Lockwood said
groups that will be there
are the Salvation Army,
Emergency Management,
The Red Cross, the local fire
department, the local police,
Hospice, Another Way and,
Smokey Bear.
Lockwood said there will
be all types of entertainment,
from live bands to an area for
children.
Towards the end of the
event, beginning at 7 p.m.,
Lockwood said there will be
a worship service. She said it
will include any area churches
that want to participate. At
approximately 8:30 p.m.,
Lockwood said there will
be a Unity Circle of Love
followed by a benediction.
Lockwood hopes this event
will bring members of the
community closer together.
"My goal is to unify this
town and make it a better
place," she said. "Hopefully


from the Day of Unity we can
move forward."
Lockwood is working hard
to make this event happen but
still needs a lot of help from
participants, organizations
and sponsors. Donations will
also be highly appreciated.
"The main thing that we're
going to need are sponsors
for the advertisers," she said,
"because I'm doing this out
of my pocket."
Lockwood continues to
look to God, her inspiration
for the event, to make this
event a success.
"We're doing what He
wants us to love each other,"
she said. "He will bless us
with this event."
For people interested in
becoming involved, the next
meeting for Unity Day will
be held July 31 at 7 p.m. at
Sunday's Coffee House in
Chiefland.

TIm notperfect just forgiven


cooking back
I'm sure glad
I survived my
ride with the
killer pimp. I was just a
young punk working my way
through junior college and
really didn't consider it a big
deal at the time.
I figured most folks
living on those downtown
Memphis streets named after
dead presidents would spend
their fair share of time at
gunpoint. Shucks, I'd faced
the: wrong endi of a muzzle
a few times back in my old.
neighborhood.
I was sharing a little
efficiency apartment at the
time, running awful lean, just
an old mattress top and a few
sets of clothes. The 60 bucks
a month I had to cough up
for rent made sure of that;
not to mention the burglar
who checked us weekly
to see if we'd compiled
anything worth taking. I had
hopes of catching him one
day, but until then it wasn't
so bad. He left me my bed
and the crusty old hot plate I
cooked my Ramen noodles
on.
What really got me hot
was when somebody went
and stole my 1977 Datsun B-
210 without bringing it back.
Horse thieving had
always been a hanging
offense where I came from,
so I saddled up my mom's
yellow Buick Century
and rode out to bring my
trusty steed back home.
Unfortunately, the first guy
I trusted turned out to be the
killer pimp. He was loitering
out front of the corer store
when I rode up.
"Yeah, I know who got
your car man," he spoke up,
"But dem some mean dudes.


You bed not go alone."
"Where they at," I asked.
He glanced around. "I'll
take you der man," he
whispered, "You gon' need
some help."
"Well, I guess you're
right." I agreed. It might
be good to have a partner
in case of a ruckus, and I
figured him to be a good
one standing at least 6'7"
not counting his fro and 4"
stacks.
He pointed me down some
back streets till we came
up .on a.nice.looking young -
lady of the streetwalker
persuasion.
"Pull over," he said, "I'm
gon ask him where yo car
be's at."
"Him?" I questioned.
He strutted off like George
Jefferson, some money
changed hands, and
there was a small scuffle.
My partner let loose with
a few backhands and came
back un-wadding some bills.
He slid them into his money
clip. "What?" he challenged,
"She said yo car's two
blocks down."
Well, it wasn't true. We
ended up in neighborhoods
that afternoon I figured I'd
never see this side of hell,
and it was always the same
old routine, "She said yo
car's two blocks down."
Finally it dawned on me,
"I'm being suckered for a
ride."
I finally gritted my teeth
and confronted him, "You
don't really know where my
car is. do you?" That's when
he pulled the gun out of his
sock.
Well, needless to say,
we went on and finished
his rounds. When he
had collected his money

and proved his pimp hand
strong he turned to me,
"Give me yo wallet."
"Some partner you.turned
out to be," I mumibledI It
ToU aixed my life'savings,
but I reluctantly handed it
over and he hopped out with
my five dollars.
"That's okay," I thought,
"at least he didn't take
momma's car." So I headed
off to pick up my date for the
evening. I'm not sure I even
mentioned the incident to her
other than advising her that
she'd be paying again.
Well 20 years have come
and gone since that day. I
now live in a nice house in
a quiet country little town.
I even have a fancy alarm
system, though I'm not sure
why. I'm hardly ever mixed
up in gun play and I was just
thinking how great things
have become, especially
since I asked Jesus into my
heart.
Many would say I've
come a good ways since my
days on the horse thieving
posse. However, in reality
God might say, "Hey man,
yo car ain't but two blocks
down."
You see, on my best day
my little journey towards
righteousness would not lift
me to the first rung on the
ladder to heaven. There's
no way anybody could earn


JNYWAY God's gift of
eternal lifeor
attain to His
standards of
holiness. God's
glory has been
traveling at
the speed of
iheffield light since
before eternity
started! I reckon on the
righteousness gauge the
killer pimp and I still aren't
really that far apart. Together
we couldn't muster enough
to fill the tank on my B-210.
I Christiansare not perfect i
people, they are just forgiven
people. Our only hope is in
God's grace. It's ridiculous
to think good works could
make us acceptable before
a holy God. It is only by
our faith in the redemptive
work of His son Jesus that
we stand. Therefore being
justified by faith, we have
peace with God through our
Lord Jesus Christ. Romans
5:1 PERIOD.
But anyway, don't let that
killer pimp sucker you for a
ride.
If you're being told that
being a good person is going
to get you into heaven I
strongly suggest you try a
new posse, and quick. You
don't want to stand before
God based on your own
righteousness, I don't care
who you are. God's grace
and forgiveness is being
offered to you right now
through Jesus. Take it.

First job turns into lifetime career


BY AMANDA DEPOTTY
CORRESPONDENT
Ann Thompson did not
intend to spend her life doing
such important work. Her path
began on a different route and
a much simpler one,-.
Thompson was born in
Colombia, S.C. on Nov. 23,
1932.
In 1944, Thompson's
father, who served in the
military, was transferred to
Homestead.
In high school she met
her future husband, who was
about- six -years .-' older than
her, through oi *a 6 te.
He was ier end's cousin,
and the two hit.it off when
they were introduced. Mr.
Thompson worked as a Civil
Service construction engineer,
causing Mrs. Thompson's
new family to move around
several times as well.
Duringthistime,Thoipson
and her husband had':eight
children. While her husband
was at work, Thompson took
on the role of housewife. She
spent all of her time rearing
the children and taking care
of her family. This role made
her final move a bit difficult.
In 1973 Thompson and
her family moved again, this
time setting down roots in
Williston.
Before the move,
Thompson and her family
had lived in Miami. By now,
Thompson's youngest child
was eight years old and in
school.
Freed of her full-time role
as caretaker to her family,
Thompson decided to get a
job to help occupy her time.
This was her first real
job in her life. Knowing the
current administrator at the
retirement home in Williston,
Thompson decided to put in
an application there.
"I went in on Friday, she
said, 'Start work on Monday,'
and I've been here ever since,"
Thompson says heartily.
Thirty-two years. later,
Thompson is now the director
of marketing. She started
out as an aide, not needing
certification at the time. She


then became the director of
nurses secretary, followed by
working in medical records.
"It's kind of all done
together," Thompson
explains. Her current duties
include going to hospitals
and homes to see clients.
and families, and inform
people on how to apply to the
retirement home and work
out financial matters. On top
of that, Thompson still enjoys
working with the residents
and does aide work from
three o'clock in the afternoon
until eleven athiht. :

Thompson says. "At one
time or another, one of their
family members or something
comes through." This helps
provideThompson with the
most fulfilling part of herjob,
being able to help the families
of.those who need her.
In thirty-two years,
Thompson has noticed many
changes in her job at Oakview
Retirement. Medicaid and
Medicare have changed their
rules, and the inspectors are
more in depth than in the
past.
When Thompson started
at Oakview there were only
63 beds available, and now
they have 120 beds in the
facility. A new doctor's office
and therapy office have been
addedtothebuilding, although
the doctor is not able to work
directly with the retirement
home as of yet. Currently,
doctors come to Oakview to
see their patients.
There have been more
rules and restrictions added
in. marketing as. well,
restricting Thompson from
going to hospitals directly to
get new applicants. Instead,
Thompson must wait for
a hospital to refer her to a

ANN THOMPSON found a cure for boredom in a
career of caring.


patient. Though the amount
of necessary paperwork
can become exasperating,
Thompson is happy to see the
better quality of care available
to her residents.
The residents are mostly
from Williston, followed
by Bronson, Chiefland and
Morriston because they are
the only nursing home in
Levy County. However,
Oakview also gets applicants
from Gainesville and Ocala.
Today, her seven surviving
children have given her about
26 grandchildren and eight
great-grandchildren with one
more on the way.


Between her extensive
family and her caring work,
Thompson has a lot to be
proud of in her life.
Though her career may
have come to fruition
through afterthought, she has
developed a deep affection for
helping the elderly of Levy
County make the difficult
transition into a retirement
home as easy as possible.

Manatees still in trouble
The state of Florida recently redefined the World Conserva-
tion Union's (IUCN) criteria for endangered species, calling
them "Threatened" instead of "Endangered." Patrick Rose,
recently appointed as executive director of Save the Manatee
Club, advises the public not to be misled into thinking the
endangered manatees' future is secure.
"Although the manatee is still listed as Endangered at the
federal level and is recommended for Endangered status at
the international level, the state's plan to downlist manatees
prematurely could have grave future consequences for the
manatee population since most protections for manatees are
implemented at the state level," Rose said. "Even though the
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
insists protection for Florida's official state marine mammal
won't change, a review of Florida law shows Endangered spe-
cies receive more protection than Threatened species." The
commission claims the Management Plan they'll devise will
protect the manatees, but Rose says Florida's Legislature will
be pressured by powerful lobbying interests to reduce the
agency's authority and funding used for manatee protection
efforts.
.According to FWC's scientists, the manatee population
could be reduced by as muchlas 50 percent in..die future frorn
growing human-related threats, red tide, and habitat loss".
Statistics also show boat strikes continue to kill manatees in
near-record numbers.
During winter months, manatees use the warm water dis-
charges of power plants. As aging plants are closed, these
discharges will no longer be available to manatees seeking
refuge from the cold. Similarly, the natural springs that man-
atees also depend on for winter refuges are being degraded

Rose, who officially assumed the title of Executive Direc-
tor on July 1. is no stranger to the manatees' plight or to the
organization. He has been Director of Government Relations
for the Club since 1996 and has over 30 years' experience
working with manatees. His extensive background includes
advocating for manatees before the Florida Legislature and
Governor and Cabinet. Rose was the first federal Manatee
Recovery Activities Coordinator and Florida's first Manatee
and Marine Mammal Coordinator. Working at the state's Ma-
rine Research Laboratory in St. Petersburg he implemented
and oversaw Florida's manatee and marine mammal research
and management programs. He also went on to head the
state's Office of Protected Species in Tallahassee where he
provided overall policy guidance and direction for statewide
recovery efforts for endangered and protected marine species
until 1996. Rose served as a member of each federal Mana-
tee Recovery Team and is a former member of the I.U.C.N.
World Conservation Union/Sirenia Specialist Group.
When Rose isn't busy working, he often can be found div-
ing and taking photos of manatees or enjoying a day fishing
with friends and family. "Ever since the fourth grade, I knew
I wanted to work with manatees," said Rose. "They are vic-
tims of our fast-paced, non-stop growth. With good, long-
range plans, we can and must ensure a place in Florida's
future for the manatee. The FWC would have you believe
that manatees are doing just fine, but their own data show
that in some parts of their range their numbers are already
decreasing. With the human population of Florida growing
by leaps and bounds, the future of the manatee is far from
secure," stated Rose.

BY ASHLEY SHEWEY
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
For Pam Owens and her
Avon business, Bingo proves
to be more than just a game.
Owens, 52, an Avon
representative, developed a
way to reward her customers
along with. increasing her
sales.
"Bingo for Avon" was
created to give her customers
a little extra incentive when
placing their orders. The prize
package for the winner is over
$250 worth of products.
"When they place their first
order, I give them a bingo
card," Owens said. "For
each order they get a bingo
number."
She said she will also have
some other scenarios in which
customers can gain a bingo
number. Whoever gets bingo
first wins the prize pack.
Owens said she also has
another $250 prize pack, and
with every $20 in orders the
customer places, their name
goes into a drawing.
"It encourages them not
only to place an order," she
said, "but to place a larger
order."
Owens established her
current Avon business four
years ago, although she had
attempted it before with little
luck.
"I was living and working
in Gulf Hammock," she said.
"There just wasn't a big
customer base."
Once she began working
in Bronson however, Owens
developed a relationship with
a local Avon representative,
due to her love for the
products. She asked Owens
to take a few orders for her.
Then the representative
moved, leaving Owens with


the customer base.


PAM OWENS combines the love of Bingo with the
love of Avon products to attract and retain custom-


"Basically, she handed me
her Avon business," she said.
"It's just taken off from there.
I was surprised with how well
I've done with the Avon since
I've got started here."
Owens said she uses her
free time during lunch and
after work to meet with
customers and hand out
books. She leaves some of
her books in area businesses
that allow her to do so.
Owens uses space at The
Picket Fence in Bronson
to showcase some of her
products. She said customers
can call her to place orders
and pick them up at the shop
at their convenience.
"I have some customers
I've never met," Owens said.
"I'm hoping now that I have


a little more time that I'll be
able to do some open houses
and get to know some of them
that I haven't met yet."
Owens has been a recipient
of the Mrs. Albee Award for
three years. The award is
given to representatives who
sell at least $10,100 worth of
Avon products.
"The last three years I've
been averaging $17,500,"
Owens said. "I have very
good customers."
Owens said Avon is a
very. easy business to get
involved in. She has been
through training to become a
beauty advisor. She is also a
fundraiser representative and
an e-representative, which
means she has an online
website.
