Bell hangs on to BOCC seat

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
The results of Tuesday's primary came in somewhat later
than expected. The glitch was due not to hanging chads but
the machine designed to prevent chad-driven problems. One
of the touch-screen electronic machines used by Williston
voters refused to have its information downloaded in a
timely manner, prompting a run to Bronson. Final results
were delivered just before 10 p.m. to approximately 75 Levy
residents.
Early numbers, which included results of all paper ballots
from all precincts, showed Chad "Cra6ker" Johnson racing
neck and neck for District 2's county commission seat against
incumbent Nancy Bell. Once all ballots were in, Bell emerged
the winner with 2,145 votes to Johnson's 2,033. Of her success,
Bell said, "I believe the Lord has blessed us. Everyone has
prayed for us, from my church to my family and friends. It's
been God-driven. I now know this is what I am supposed to
do for the next four years. It.has also been a long, hot race, a
good one. I've run against some good people."
Cracker Johnson, who brought his family along to wait for
results, said, "We came up short but that's alright. I only wish
we could go into overtime."
Brett Sandlin came in with 1,452 votes and Justin Watson
received 613 in their bids to defeat Bell.
School Board candidate Rick Turner ran a wider lead
against incumbent Jennefer Shuster. Turner received 3,690
votes against Shuster's 2,501. He attributed his success to his
background: "I've had a lot of experience and that was what Journal photo byCassie Journigan
I was running on. I feel the media in Levy County treated
me very fairly. They asked the questions the voters wanted to RICK TURNER and Nancy Bell had plenty to smile aboutTuesday. Both won their
know. I am hoping that those responses helped the voters make Levy County campaigns. Turrier defeated school board incumbent Jennefer
Shuster while Bell edged out Cracker Johnson, Brett Sandlin and Justin Watson

Residents oppose church/retreat construction

It's not church or religion
they oppose, but an increase
of traffic in an otherwise resi-
dential neighborhood.
That's what a, group of
property owners from Sham-

Farms told the Levy County
Board of County Commis-
sioners Tuesday.

Plans for the facility also
include classrooms, a stage, a
basketball court and a tennis
court, and perhaps a swim-

Citizens said the class-
rooms could be converted to
dormitories and the basket-
ball court could become a
dining facility.

age for the area and was told
yes. Rob Corbett from the
planning department said the
application designated the
structure as a church and in
fact, said it may be following
the megachurch trend that is
sweeping the United States.
"They've met all our re-
quirements," Corbett said.
Several citizens addressed
the commissioners, each say-
ing they opposed the influx of
traffic and people into their


neighborhood.
Richard Chester said every
road in Foxglove Farms leads
to the church and if the own-
ers paved the roads, the citi-
zens may be more amenable.
His brief statement serit up
cries of "No. No. No." from
others in the audience.
Other property owners said
deed restrictions prohibited
the structure, but they were

Sheriff asked to

trim request
BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
If Levy County is going
to stay competitive with sur-
rounding counties, uniformed
law enforcement agents have
to have pay increases.
That was the message
Sheriff Johnny Smith deliv-
ered last week to the board of
county commissioners during
a budget work session.
Smith said the majority o
the $1.5 million increase he
asked for would go toward
salaries.
"It's the guys in uniform,"
Smith said. "I have an obliga'
tion to fight for them."
Other requested monies
are designated for training,
insurance/workman's comp
increases, vehicle repair and
motor fuel. '
Commissioner Danny Steu
vens' motion to honor thb
request died for a lack of a
second.
The sheriff also plans to
add four new correctioAs of-
ficers. By doing so, it will
enable him to open another
pod at the jail to house out-
of-county inmates.
Fees received for housing
the inmates would justify

Chiefland OKs annexation of 949 acres


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Besides the tumultuous
activities that culminated in
the firing of the Chiefland city
manager during the Aug. 21
meeting, several ordinances
were considered.
Commission members
heard a second reading of
the involuntary annexation of
approximately 949 acres on
both sides of Highway 19/98
and just north of town.
At the unanimous approval
of the vote, commission
member Teal Pomeroy said,
"It's just two weeks shy of the
time one year ago when the
board voted unanimously to
proceed with the annexation.


I'm glad to see we're moving
forward."
The vote moves the
annexation one big step
forward. According to city
attorney Norm Fugate,
the next move will be a
referendum Oct. 30 and will
be effective 10 days later.
Commission members
reconsidered developer Mike
Fowler's preliminary plat
request for the proposed Park
West subdivision.

That request was originally
denied Aug. 14 after members
raised concerns including
small lot sizes and flooding
potential.
Mike Pardue appeared with


Fowler and said they now
had a working drainage plan.
Mayor Teresa Barron asked if
Fowler would mind the city
diverting water standing in
the city street to the retention
pond. Fowler consented.
Fowler and Pardue also
mentioned the setback,
another concern raised at the
previous meeting. Fowler
noted the homes had adequate
setback and that homes in
Gainesville had setbacks that
were much less. The request
passed with Pomeroy voicing
the one vote of opposition.

City attorney Fugate's
contract renewal, which had
been tabled at the previous


Williston AARP sponsors vaccination clinic


Adelia Vachon, AARP Advocacy
Coordinator, and Mignon Craig, president of
Williston AARP Chapter 912, announce a Flu,
Pneumonia and Tetanus Shot Clinic on Oct.
3 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Fellowship
Hall of the United Methodist Church at 213
W. Noble Ave., Williston. Maxim Health
Systems, LLC, of Ocala will be administering
the shots.
Maxim will directly bill Medicare Part
B for the flu and pneumonia injections for
all Medicare clients who bring a picture
identification and their Medicare card.
Medicare will not pay for tetanus shots.
Maxim cannot bill Medicaid or other health
insurance companies but will issue a receipt,
which can be submitted for reimbursement.
With all of the cuts and scraps many older
persons get, paying for a tetanus booster is a
pretty good investment, since it is only needed
every 10 years unless a serious injury occurs.


Flu shots are an annual event because of the
changes in the virus, which causes flu. It
is recommended that a pneumonia shot be
repeated in five years, but this is changed
frequently by the U.S. Communicable
Disease Department.
Cost of a flu shot is $25, pneumonia
vaccination is $10 and a tetanus shot, costs
$30.
Appointments will be made at half-hour
intervals with 40 being made for each time,
so please, come at the specific time of your
appointment to shorten waiting time.
An appointment can be made by calling
Adelia Vachon at 528-5024 except on
Sept. 25, 26, 27 and 28 when you may call
528-5977. In the past two years morning
appointments have filled quickly. Leave your
name and phone number on the answering
machine if you don't reach someone.

donated copies of their Hurricane Evacuation Study to each
branch of the Levy County Public Library System.
The study covers Citrus, Hernando, Levy, Marion anid
Sumter Counties. It looks at the population characteristics
of each county while assessing the vulnerability and capacity
limits of the areas.
Maps look at the potential for damage from surge, fresh-
water flooding and wind. The maps also identify locations of
critical places such as schools, medical treatment facilities,
mobile home parks, emergency shelters and hazardous mate-
rial facilities.
Coastal residents are not the only ones who need to be
aware of the potential dangers of flooding and winds. These'
maps provide excellent detail so that everyone in the pqpn-
ty can be prepared. Visit your local library, and take, ,salok

OUR VIEW


Remember your pets
To the editor:
As Tropical Storm Ernesto bears down on Florida, it is
important to remember to make arrangements to protect your
animal friends. One of the most valuable lessons learned
from Hurricane Katrina is to evacuate if at all possible and
to never leave animals behind. There is no way of knowing
what may happen to your home and if or when you will be
able to return. Companion animals left behind may drown,
die of dehydration or heat exhaustion, or escape and become
lost.
Fortunately, many hotels waive animal restrictions dur-
ing disasters. If you can't afford to stay at a hotel, call your
local humane society or animal shelter to ask if any arrange-
ments are being made for evacuating animals. Pack a tent so
that you can camp out as a last resort. Also pack a leash or
carrier, bottled water, bowls, tie-out kit, dry food, kitty litter,
and a litter pan.
If you can't get to your home, arrange for a neighbor or
friend to take your animals. If you have any elderly, dis-
abled, or disadvantaged neighbors, offer to help them evacu-
ate with their animals-these people, who are among the
most vulnerable, are also often the most likely to refuse to
evacuate because of their animals.
If you are forced to leave animals behind, never leave
them tied up or confined to a cage or to a single room. Allow
them access to upper floors and fill bathtubs and sinks with
water. Leave several weeks' supply of dry food scattered
around the house and make sure that animals are wearing ID
tags.

Manatees still in danger

To the editor:
We appreciate the efforts of The Sirenia Project of the.U.S.
Geological Survey and John Vargo, the publisher of Boating
on the Hudson magazine, for alerting the public to the pres-
ence of the endangered manatee recently sighted along the
Northeast U.S. Coast. This has brought much needed atten-
tion to the threats manatees face in the wild.
Despite initial conjecture, the Florida manatee who had
traveled along the Hudson River and then over to Rhode Is-
land is not Chessie. Chessie, a male manatee featured in Save
the Manatee Club's adoption program, became well-known
when he decided to take a long, leisurely swim up north over a
decade ago. He's a great ambassador for his species, as many
people throughout the world followed Chessie's nomadic ad-
ventures while learning about endangeredimanatees.
S:Florida researchers think that the Florida manatee popula-
tion could be reduced by as much as 50 percent' inthe fu-
tire from growing human-related threats unless appropriate
safeguards are taken to protect the manatees' wintering habi-
tat.and reduce human-caused mortality.. Unfortunately, boat
strikes continue to kill manatees in near-record numbers. The
publicity generated by these northern sightings serves to en-
courage more boaters to be careful on the waterways, as many
Florida visitors also like to go boating.
: We have received numerous public inquires about the north-
ern manatee traveler and about manatees in general, which
is not unusual because the Club has been a key information
source for over 25 years. We encourage visits to our website
at www.savethemanatee.org. While there, adopt Chessie or
one of his friends, and learn other protection tips for boaters
as the Labor Day weekend is a particularly dangerous time for
manatees and boaters alike.

T- uesday is the most
stressful day in the
S life of the weekly
newspaper staff.
Ad and copy deadlines
have passed and for the next
10, 12 or 14 hours, the puz-
zle comes together in time
for the 8 a.m. press deadline
Wednesday.
Tuesday is a day when
the newspaper's crew stays
glued to computers, makes
phone calls short and sends
out for lunch.
Sept. 11, 2001 started off
to be that typical Tuesday.
Most of us had dragged in
earlier than usual that Tues-
day. The office manager had
just returned from the routine
biscuit run and some of us
were sitting in the news-
room having breakfast while
others, like me, were buried
deep in the day's,work.. ,
And then the phone call
came.
Patty, our typesetter, was
off on Tuesday. She called'
and said a plane had crashed
into a building in New York.
Word spread like butter on
a warm biscuit among our
offices.
And then Patty called
again.
A second plane had just
crashed into that same build-
ing.
Many of my coworkers
stopped what they were do-
ing and searched the Internet
for word on what' was hap-
pening.
Ten minutes later, Patty
rushed in the front door
with a small television
and perched it on the front
counter.
We all crowded around
and there we were when
word came that a third plane
had crashed into the Penta-
gon.
One sales rep was frantic.

terrorism.
A little after 10, we heard
the fourth plane had crashed.
I remember turning away
from everyone huddled by
that little TV and going to
the door.
There I looked to the east
and with my head leaning on
the window, I prayed.
I prayed for those injured
or killed; I prayed for my
children and I remember ask-
ing God, "Will this be how it
will end?"; '
I turned away and walked
quietly back to my office and
continued laying out pages.
My co-workers remained
around that television for at
least an hour. I know they
thought I was callous and
unaffected, but in retrospect,
I know I was numb.
I tried calling home but
my husband wasn't answer-
ing, having worked the late
shift the night before.
I left this message on the
machine, "Where are you?
The world is coming to an
end!"
I tried to lay out pages
but those early images were
burned into my eyes.
And then my son's teacher
called for a telephone confer-
ence.
She obviously had not
heard and as she prattled on
and on about some misdeed
he had done, I kept thinking,
"This is not important. Not
today. Please, please hang
up."
Five years later, as I write
this, I still get chills as I
remember that morning.
A day that changed my
life in as much as it made me
so much more aware of the
fragility of life.


I am
too young
to recall
Pearl
Harbor;
President
Ken-
nedy's
assassi-
nation is


almost a
blur.
But this is real. This
reminds me that we, take so
much for granted. That our
country has been so blessed
to. not have war and devasta-
tion on our shores.
Somehow I managed to
get through that week's pa-
per and that night, I checked
on each of my children to en-
sure they were in their beds
where they were supposed
to be.
Over the next days, and ,
weeks and even months that
followed, I became obsessed
with CNN, Time magazine
and every other media outlet.
I read every account. I
watched families search
hopelessly among photo-
graphs for their loved ones.
I cried for people I did not
know. I cried for the safety
of those I did.
I rejoiced that my cousin
Bill, who worked at the
Pentagon, was absent from
work that day because he
was becoming a first-time
grandfather.
For weeks, I wondered if
Atlanta, only 85 miles away
with its busy airport, would
be next.
It was many, many weeks
later before the shock I felt
began to dissipate and I
gradually quit obsessing over
what had transpired the day
the world quit turning.
But five years later, I have
not forgotten, nor will I ever
forget.
Nor will I ever feel safe
again. That was taken from
me on that not-so-typical
Tuesday Sept. 11, 2001.

aging editor of the Levy

The day time

stood still

M y editor Carolyn
has labeled
Sept. 11, 2001
as "The day the world
stopped turning." Reflecting
back on that horrible day,
I realize how apt is this
characterization. Time did
indeed stand still.
I
remember
that day
in all its
dramatic
detail. I
was at
my desk
working
when I CASSIE JOURNIGAN
received
an e-mail from my husband.
He said a plane had just
flown into one of the WTO's
twin towers.
My brain refused to
handle that fact. I went on
working. A few moments
later a coworker came into
my office and asked if I
had heard. It was only then,
through the voice of an
acquaintance, that I woke up
to a horrible reality.
Many of us gathered in
the conference room, bound
to a television bringing live
images of a second plane
hitting, and of the towers
falling, slowly and silently.
More than 3,000 people
perished, and millions of
us witnessed it. I think
there were 30 or so people
crowded into our little
conference room. And yet
it seemed we were not there
together but each alone
within a solitary hole of
disbelief, fear and grief.
I knew immediately where
the attack, came from. I did
not know in those early
hours the name Osama bin
Laden, nor did I recall his al-
Qaeda brigade, but I knew
this desperate act was bor
in the Middle East among
religious extremists.
I had graduated just five
years previously with a
degree in religious studies.
My focus was Christianity,

but I studied all the world's
major religions. One of
my professors-Iranian by
birth-taught a course called
"The Politics of Islam"
that provided a historic
overview of the who, what,
when, where and why of
Muslim extremism. And
I had already watched the
numerous attacks that began
in the 1970s. Each it seemed
was more vicious and took
more lives than the previous
one.
In that class I learned but
bits of how religion can be
perverted to wage war that
was anything but holy. I
already knew my history,
and knew that wars levied
in the name of any religion
appeared to be anything but
holy. I merely saw another

We were all silent and helpless


Little did I suspect
as I drove to work
on the morning
of Sept. 11, 2001, that this
particular Tuesday would
be any different than any
other ordinary work day. I
worked for the Orlando
Police Department as an
administrative assistant in
their Drug Enforcement
Division.
We had several televisions
in this division that were
usually left on so that
the undercover officers
could come in and watch
something that would
take their minds off their
dangerous, sadly mundane
and thankless jobs.
I had settled into my
morning routine. There
were several officers there
still working from the night
before and a female officer
came to me and asked me
if I knew that a plane had
crashed into one of the
World Trade Center towers.
I said no and immediately
went to watch one of the
televisions.
I joined several officers
watching and saw a tower
with a gaping hole and
billowing black smoke.
The newscasters didn't yet
know that this was a terrorist
attack and I thought it was
just a disabled plane or
someone who had become
disoriented in some way and
accidentally flew into the


building. I had no idea that
it was an airliner.
As the events unfolded
and the second plane crashed
into the I 190 10-, 1


other tower,
it became
apparent
that this
was no
accident.
Then, we
heard that
a jet had
crashed
into the
Pentagon.


ROBIN HEATH
Guest Columnist


And yet another had crashed
into a field in Pennsylvania.
Our hearts fell. We knew
that we were not watching
some multi-million dollar
movie with extraordinary
special effects. We had just
witnessed hundreds of lives
ending horribly.
We continued watching
as fire and police officers,
our brothers and sisters,
responded to the scene and
began to,do whatever they
could to help save the lives
of those streaming from
the buildings and those still
trapped.
Some of us had family
or friends working in New
York, or even in the World
Trade Center itself. We all
wondered aloud about them.
Some tried to call. Others
prayed. We were mostly
silent and our building took
on a pall of dread.


We all felt helpless,
watching the scene continue
to unfold as the first building
began to fall. We were a
thousand miles away and
we all wanted to be there,
running to help. This simply
could not be happening!
And then the second building
fell. All that humanity and
glass and steel and masonry
collapsing on top of itself.
The buildings just seemed
to disappear into the ground.
We knew there was no hope
for anyone still left inside
them.
As the day wore on, little
work was accomplished. No
one had the heart. Everyone
was drenched in despair
and grief. We learned more
about what had happened;
that a group of terrorists
living among us and learning
to fly our airliners on our
own soil had planned this
attack on us.
We, the trusting, open-
hearted and mighty United
States of America had
failed to prevent this from
happening to us. It wasn't
a specific country that
attacked us. It would have
been simpler if it had been;
instead it was an invisible
enemy. One who hid in
various places around the
world and even within our
own country. Were they our
neighbors? Against whom do
we retaliate? It is a difficult
question, but we must
retaliate. These thousands of


deaths on our own soil could
not be left unanswered.
Many disagree with the
war in Iraq. They say that
President Bush started this
war for his own personal
reasons.
I do not know all of the
important bits of information
that were gathered to piece
this puzzle together and
even President Bush can't
possibly know everything.
He has to depend on others
within our government to
provide him with accurate
information to make the
horrible decisions he must.
Many I knew said that we
should simply "nuke" them
all. Whom? Thousands and
thousands of innocents to
get at the few? That would
make us no better than the
terrorists!
We have to continue to
fight terrorism and though
the Iraq war was begun to
prevent Sadam Hussein from
creating and using more
weapons of mass destruction
and none was found, that
area of the world is the
source of terrorism.
We must continue to seek
out those who would destroy
us. Unfortunately, this war
will never end. Though
there is something all of us
can do; and it is not the least
we can do, it is the best we
can do: pray for God's will.

It s simple math that calculates your taxes


BY MARC POMPEO
GUEST COLUMNIST
With Levy County property owners having just received
the "Notice of proposed property taxes," I thought this might
be helpful to'explain the method by which property taxes are
calculated.
Total assessed values in Levy County have increased by
43.3 percent from 2005 to 2006. If the county keeps the 2005
millage rate of 9 mils as proposed in the 2006 "Notice of
proposed property taxes," that would indicate that the coun-
ty's budget would have also increased 43.3 percent from last
year. Is this possible? Find out by attending
the budget meeting on Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at
the courthouse in Bronson. i
Cited from MillageRate.com on Aug. 29,
2006 with Levy County figures. http://www.
millagerate.com/howto.htm
"Just Do the Math"
How to Calculate the Millage Rate
The ad valorem property tax is probably the most widely
discussed, yet the most misunderstood part of the public fi-
nance process. Knowledge of the manner in which the tax is
determined is vital to all elected officials and property own-
ers, but a mystery to many.
Once you understand the calculation, you see that the prop-
erty tax process is not "smoke and mirrors," but straight-for-
ward numbers-simple math. You may also discover that many
elected officials-your city council members, your county
commissioners and your school board-are taking more mon-
ey from you than they should... or they're spending your gov-
ernment into a deficit each year.
Simply put, it's simple math
The millage rate is nothing more than the answer to a sim-
ple division problem; a number which, when applied to the
value of every taxable property, equally and fairly distributes
a portion of the cost of government to every real and personal
Property owner.
The calculation is supposed to be completely predestined
and mechanical-just divide one number by another number-
the resulting number is the millage rate.
To establish the millage rate, only two numbers are need-
ed:
1. a dollar figure representing the portion of the annual bud-
get that must be funded by property tax dollars (see note 1);
2. a dollar figure representing the jurisdiction's net tax di-
gest, which is the total value of all taxable property within the
jurisdiction.
Calculating the need
The taxing authority decides how much revenue it needs to
provide necessary services. This is known as "setting the bud-
get." As part of this process, the jurisdiction computes how
much revenue will be generated by licenses, fees, fines and

penalties, user fees and service charges, as well as interest on
reserves and investments. The remainder of the budget must
be funded by property taxes, borrowing or the sale of bonds.
LAtthe same time,,thbe.county tax assessor's office is assess-
ing the fair market value of all taxable property within the
county and, for city tax purposes, within the corporate limits
of any municipalities. The total value of all taxable property
is called the "gross tax digest." The value of exemptions and
exempted properties are deducted to produce the net tax di-
gest or "taxable value." In Levy County, ad valorem tax is
levied on the net tax digest amount (taxable value).
Once you have
Sithose two numbers,
the process is very
g g g simple.
""Do the math"
To determine the
millage rate, you di-
vide the "A" the portion of the budget to be funded by tax
dollars by the second number, "B"- which is the net tax
digest. The product of this equation is "C," the millage rate
(see note 2).
A divided by B equals C
One "mill" represents one dollar of tax on every thousand
dollars of taxable property value (note 2).
Your City Council, County Commission and School Board
(see note 6) must hold public hearings prior to adopting the
millage rate. The approved rate is provided to the county tax
commissioner, who uses the rate to calculate and collect your.
individual tax liability.
Calculate your own tax
To calculate your fair share of the cost of government, the
taxable value (note 3) of your property is then multiplied by
the adopted millage rate. This produces a dollar figure, the
amount of tax to be paid by each property owner. As long
as property values are fairly assessed or "equalized," every
property owner then pays his or her proper and fair share of
the cost of government (see note 4).
Your total tax bill will actually be the total of several mill-
age rates. The rates for your county, your school board and
the water management district will be applied to your taxable
property value. If you live within the boundaries of a city, you
will also be subject to its tax rate.
An Example:
During its budget process, the Smallville City Council has
determined that $2,000,000 in tax revenues is needed to bal-
ance this year's budget-he rest of the $4 million budget will
be funded by speed traps and revenue from the city cable TV
system. Meanwhile, the county tax commissioner's office has
determined that the city's gross tax digest is $480,191,862;
after all exemptions, the net tax digest is $438,894,502.
The correct millage rate, therefore, is $2,000,000 divided


by $438,894,502, or .004557 (rounded).
The number .004557 represents the tax on each dollar -of
value. To determine the rate on every $1,000 of value, multi-
ply the rate by 1,000 or simply move the decimal.point three
places to the right. Though not required, millage rates are of-
ten rounded to two decimal places, which gives you 4.56 mills
or $4.56 of tax on every $1,000 of taxable property value.-
John Q. Homeowner's residence is assessed for tax purpos-
es at $150,000 and the taxable value is $60,000. John's prop-
erty tax for the year is therefore $273.60 (60,000 x .00456)
(notes 5,7)
In other words, John's share of the $2 million, that year's
cost of city government that was not funded by fees, fines and
other revenue sources, is $273.60, based on the taxable value
of his real property.
Notes:
1. Ideally, during the budget process the taxing authority
computes its expenses, then deducts the expected amount .of
non-tax revenue (fines, fees; interest on investments, etc.).
The amount that remains is the portion of the budget that must
be funded by tax dollars. In our opinion, it is good budget-
ing to look to property taxes last after all non-tax sources are
identified and considered.
2. Actually, the product is the tax on each dollar of taxable
value. To determine the tax rate on every $1,000 of taxable
value, multiply by 1,000 or just move the decimal point to the
right three spaces.
3. In Levy County, the taxable value of real.property is the
assessed value less any exemptions.
4. Whether or not the ad valorem tax is an equitable wayto
fund the cost of government is a discussion for another day.
5. The math can be a little confusing at this point. John's
property tax computation is either ".00456 of a dollar on ev-
ery dollar of taxable value" (.00456 x 60,000) or "$4.56 on
every thousand dollars of taxable value" (4.56 x 60). The an-
swer is the same.
6. School boards are considered "recommending authori-
ties;" they do not have the authority to set their own millage,
but must recommend a rate which is officially approved by
the county commission. School boards are required to con-
duct public hearings prior to approving and recommending
a rate.
7. To simplify the example, homestead exemptions, value
offset exemptions and other reductions in taxable value are
not considered. All will further reduce your actual tax liabil-
ity.

Just preaching, or telling the truth?


My little girl Kailey has always been picky about
restaurants. In her opinion they should either
serve milk, have a jukebox or sport some sort
of live fish. The Chinese buffet had done well by adding the
new shark tank, but they were never quite able to wrench the
'All-time Favorite Daddy-Daughter Eatery' title from the
Waffle House.
I recall BUT ANYWAY
one of our
visits in
particular
several years I
back. I held
Kailey's
little hand .
tenderly as Guy E. Sheffield.
we parted
the low
cloud of
cigarette smoke to our usual booth, the sizzle of bacon and
the clanging of the spatula nearly drowning out the "Waffle
House Boogie" seeping from the crusty ceiling speakers. A
long line of bedraggled customers eyeballed us suspiciously
from the counter. We must have stood out, obviously being
the only ones there that had made it home from the previous
night.
We ordered and I set about to finish telling Kailey of
Jesus' command to spread the Gospel. However, I couldn't
seem to get a word in edgewise. "Daddy, daddy, can I have
a quarter?" She kept begging. I was really starting to get
frustrated with that little 5 year old! Does she not care about
the souls of man? Am I the only one? Then she gave me
quite a start. Through her thin white milk mustache she
popped up and said, "Go tell em' bout Jesus daddy." She was
pointing at a table full of big rough looking bikers.
After studying the situation' I decided it was best to give
Kailey that quarter. "Here sweetheart," I smiled, "Why
don't you run and play the "Waffle House Shuffle" on the
jukebox?" I must admit, while she was gone I did a little


Waffle House shuffle of my own. "Surely she will forget ,..
about those bikers by the time she gets back," I prayed; but -
she didn't. In fact, she came back with the quarter, "Here
daddy, give em' dis monies when you tell em' bout Jesus.";
Five year olds sure got a way of messing up a good
sermon with their simplistic views of reality. They're just .
not mature enough to understand our reasoning when we
say, "Do as I say, not as I do." The little boogers remember
everything and they're bad about bringing it up on you
later. I reckon my two kids hold me more accountable to my
beliefs nowadays than anybody.
Jesus loves simple childlike faith. He made that clear in
Mark 10:15. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not
receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not : i
enter therein. Wow! That's sobering; but I guess when you'::
understand that the souls of millions of people hang in the: .
balance you could better understand that God's not interest:
in building a Church full of armchair quarterbacks. He's
looking for a generation of warriors who will love Him
enough to obey Him. For the eyes of the LORD run to and -
fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in
the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. 2
Chronicles 16:9.
But anyway, I guess as we get older we just naturally
acquire a bag full of excuses. I've got some that cover just
about every subject. Kailey ended up dragging a few old.:
standards out of me that day. "I just don't feel led right now,"
I whined. Then, to my shame, I even tried to turn it around., ,
on her, "You go," I said, "It's'your idea." She just looked at,-,
me with those big blue eyes, "Nooo... You tell em' daddy.", ,
So I did something I didn't know I had in me. I went. I went ,
afraid. I don't remember exactly what I said, but I told theil
about Jesus. You know what? Those big bikers didn't kill me
or anything. I may never know if my visit mattered to those :
bikers that day, that's between them and God; but I believe if
mattered to Kailey. I know it mattered to Jesus.

On September 11, 2001,
a series of terrorist attacks
on our nation killed
thousands of innocent
men, women and children
in a matter of hours.
Five years later, the
aftermath of this tragedy
remains fresh in the hearts
and minds
of Americans.
We continue to remember
and'mourn the victims.
We continue to pay tribute
to the first responders
whose sole concern was
helping those in need.
Five years later, we're still
proud of the way we pulled
together to overcome a
tragedy that wounded us
deeply, but brought
us closer
together as a nation.

On September 11, 2006,
we pay tribute to those
whose lives were taken,
and we pray for the families
who continue to grieve.
America has turned tragedy
Sand grief into a
strengthened resolve to
protect liberty,
and we salute the brave
troops who continue to
defend our freedom
abroad. Five years later
and forever, we remember
September 11, 2001.

We salute you!

Melanie Allen worked in
the media center at Chiefland
High School. "The phone
rang. My mother said, 'Turn
on the TV, turn on the TV.'
The librarian turned on the
TV to see what was going
on. We didn't do anything
the rest of the day. We were
just totally glued to the TV. It
brought chills up and down
my arms.
"Everything that has ever
happened has happened
while I've been in school,
beginning with Kennedy and
Oswald. I saw the Challenger
go up. But this was the most
devastating. There were so-
many lives involved.
"I've bought every book
about it. Some people have
said we should just forget
about it. But we should never
ever forget. I do think about
one thing nobody ever talks
about. The survivors who
were injured. They carry the
scars with them. I wonder
how they cope.
"What can we do to remind
people of the importance
of all this? I didn't know
anybody personally who was
caught up in this but that
doesn't make any difference.
It is still very personal."


Kolan Durrance was in
seventh grade the day the
terrorists attacked. "We were
out for P.E. and when we
came back into the classroom
our teacher, Ms. Henderson,
was sitting there crying. We
were watching TV when the
second one hit. We were in
school all day but most of the
teachers were in tragedy. The
kids were trying to figure out
what the trade towers were,
and what it meant and what
the attacks meant."


Bud Alien. I was working
at the Crystal River Nuclear
Plant getting ready for a
refuel shutdown. The plant
made an announcement on
the intercom .and said we
were in a terrorist attack.
Security came through and
said, 'Everybody out,' so all
us contractors had to leave.
Nobody stayed who wasn't
a permanent employee of
Florida Power. The next day
the only people who could go
back to work were those with
security clearances. Security
was very tight and just got
tighter as the weeks went by.
We were all watched very
closely, especially when we
were in areas pertinent to the
plant. They've had very tight
security ever since.
I don't think we're any
safer today than we were that
day five years ago. We don't
safeguard our country. How
do we knowthere's not sleeper
cells all over the U.S.? When
my wife Judy and I flew to
Hawaii last year, I was scared
to death. And it would only
be worse now, after the recent
incident with the.planes. It's
a psychological thing, you
know. They're trying to keep
us scared to death.


Adele Beront said that
like so many others that
dreadful day she was gluedlto
the TV set. She said she felt
emptiness, and absolutely
drained. "It was like Pearl
Harbor or the Challenger
explosion. Your emotions are
so overwhelming that there
are no words to describe itf:
"And now these people
are asking us to change
religions? It all sounds. so
scriptural...We need to pray
for. the Islamic people...let
them believe what they want
to...we'll still come feed
them when they are hungry."


Ralph Briggs. On Sept.
11, I was watching the Good
Morning America. I can
remember Charlie (Gibsop)
saying, 'Get Chet dolvi
here-this is not an accident.'
Of course, Chet or somebody
else who knew the background
of this stuff took over at that
point. But I couldn't get away
from it. I watched it on TV all
day. I'm a vet-I volunteered
for Korea.

Megan Webb said she was
in the sixth grade at Chiefland
Middle School on that day.
"I was sitting in math class.
I was totally shocked and
remember thinking Oh, my
God. We stopped working to
watch the news."


Bob Bray Jr. "My mother
has these dreams or visions.
A couple of days before she
couldn't sleep. She felt a
horrible pain. She saw people
dying. She couldn't tell
anybody. We all have dreams
sometimes. It's so strange
when they come true. Mom
feels guilty because she could
have told somebody."

Financial preparation key before the storm


Tips can smooth the rough patches


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Hurricane parties aside,
mammoth storms are a
very big deal to all Florida
residents.
The state's Department
of Financial Services (DFS)
helps citizens prepare
financially for these dreaded
storms.
Every time an .active
tropical storm or hurricane
threatens Florida, DFS
activates a help-line for
assistance on insurance
issues. The number is 1-800-
22-STORM, or 1-800-227-
8676.
Residents can prepare
themselves by visiting
the DFS website. Many
publications are available,
including a national disaster
guide. The guide offers
several tips on what to do


before a storm strikes, and
measures to take when one
threatens:
S Purchase insurance
before a storm threatens,
since it cannot normally be
purchased once an area falls
under a hurricane watch.
Know your
coverage. Purchase insurance
appropriate to all the types of
damage that may affect your
area.
Make sure your
coverage equals the value of
your home and possessions.
Have name, phone
and policy number of your
insurer readily available in
case you must leave.
Withdraw adequate
cash. Once a storm hits, banks
may be closed for several
days.
Keep a credit card
with at least $1,000 available,


and keep receipts for all
purchases made during this
time.
Make your online and
by-phone payments before a
storm hits. This service can
be disrupted for several days,
causing late payments. Mail
payments at least 48 hours
before a storm is forecast
to hit since mail delivery is
usually disrupted.
Document all storm-
related repairs by using credit
cards.

According to the DFS
website, you may receive
discounts on insurance
premiums if you take
measures to reduce hurricane
damage.
Several South Florida
and east coast counties are
currently eligible to receive


grants to strengthen a home
against storm damage;
however, the My Safe Florida
Home program does not
currently cover Levy County.

"There are many factors
that can contribute to brown
spots on a lawn, such as fun-
gus, dog marks, lack of prop-
er light in relationship to type
of grass seed, lack of water,
foot compaction (from. re-
peated walking over the same
patch of lawn), or pests such
as grubs," says Jim Burgess,
horticulturalist at Central
Park's Tavern on the Green in
New York.
In the spring, lack of fertil-
izer is generally the problem,
and you can usually sprinkle
an all-purpose fertilizer to
reinvigorate the lawn. Also,
when there is little rainfall,'
brown spots may be due to
lack of water.
Burgess recommends an
organic approach to reinvig-
orating lawns, and says the
best way to remove brown
spots (no matter the cause) is
to aerate the soil by raking up
the brown patch, and reseed-
ing the soil with a general
purpose seed mix.
Aerating and reseeding the
soil once in the spring and
once in the fall for a luscious
green lawn, is one of Burgess'
tricks of the trade.

make their choices." He added that he "made tremendous friends

some of the request increase.
Nate Ingram, representative from the Police Benevolent
Society, endorsed Smith's request telling the commissioners
that Levy County is one of the lowest paying agencies in the
area.
"Bottom of the barrel pay is bottom of the barrel employ-
ees," Ingram said.
The commissioners were concerned because Smith's bud-
get increase was so much.
"Anytime a budget increases over 10 percent any given
year," Chairwoman Nancy Bell said, "it needs to be looked
at."
The commissioners also noted that the board will help de-
fray the tab for the communications network needed for the
sheriff, and it will come from the general fund, rather than his
budget.
The commissioners asked the sheriff to considerably pare
his budget.
"We're not crippling him by asking him to cut his budget
$500,000," Commissioner Lilly Rooks said.
The commissioners did approve Supervisor of Elections
Connie Asbell's request for a vehicle for her office. Commis-
sioner Sammy Yearty did not see a need for the vehicle and
voted against the measure.
The board will consider the sheriff's request and others at
the TRIM hearing next Monday, Sept. 11 at 6:30 p.m.


sion does not enforce such restrictions or covenants. Those
are placed on deeds by developers and any enforcement must
be done in civil court by the property owners.
David Fields, the pastor who is developing the property,
told the commissioners the church is a mission of a church af-
filiated with the South Baptist Convention in South Florida.
"We've not been secretive about who we are," he defend-
ed.
The possibility of having access to the property off High-
way 121 instead of throughout the development was recom-
mended.
"Are you willing to try to lessen the impact on the prop-
erty?" Yearty asked Fields.
After a long pause, the pastor said, "I guess the answer is
yes ... although multiple access is ideal."
Chairwoman Nancy Bell encouraged Fields to work with
his neighbors, telling him that "conflict is not spiritually
blessed." Bell said if he could work with his neighbors, they
may rally behind him and therefore grow his church.
As long as a church is a permitted use, the commissioners
stressed there is nothing in their power that can be done.
County Coordinator Fred Moody and Corbett were advised
to work with Fields and the disgruntled neighbors to see if
another solution is possible.
