Yankeetown


mayor resigns

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Believing her town is destined for another go-round of
chaos, Yankeetown Mayor Joanne Johannesson resigned her
position in a letter to Gov. Jeb Bush dated Sept. 19.
Johannsesson said that her resignation Was to take place
immediately. She cited a political situation that she. said was
getting ready to "spiral once again into the divisive chaos that
has consumed (the town)." She added that an elected official
has "challenged the landowners to initiate litigation."
The town has engaged for months in internecine warfare
over the fate of a section of waterfront property being sought
for development. The mayor was in support of a development
group, Izaak Walton Investors LLC, which has been pushing
for plans to create a marina complex along the Withlacoochee
River.
Johannesson had recently survived a recall attempt by town
residents angry over her stand on the development issue. That
recall was halted after being declared invalid in a circuit court
ruling.
The mayor's resignation follows her receipt of letters of
resignation from council members Dan Bowman and Glen
Spetz.
Spetz's letter was dated Sept. 8 and Bowman's Sept. 19.
She mentions those resignations in her letter to Bush, say-
ing, "I have attached the resignation letters of the two council
people, Mr. Spetz and Mr. Bowman, who have made a valiant
effort to support me in working toward the best interest of the
town but have succumbed in the face of violent opposition."
The mayor also recommended to the governor that the
Yankeetown charter be dissolved, "which would allow Yan-
keetown to preserve its name and identity-as a community...
(while providing) the benefit of having public services admin-
istered by the larger and fully equipped government of Levy
County."
Gov. Bush called for a state of emergency in the town earli-
er this summer, citing the town's inability to collect payments
such as water service invoices; uncontested creditor claims;
a failure to transfer pensions, retirement, and benefit plans
to' employees; and the discontinuation of town volunteer fire
department services due to unpaid fuel bills. The executive
order also cited the town's inability to muster a quorum due to'
the resignation of the three council members, David LaCroix.
Roger Myrick and Diane Blomgren. The town council has a
total of five seats.

Almost 4,000 use discount drug card


During the first four
months since the introduction
of the Levy County
Prescription Drug Iiscount
Program, county residents
filled 3,967 prescriptions
with the cards at discounts
averaging 16.04 percent
and $8.41 per prescription,
County Commissioner Lilly
Rooks announced recently.
Levy County launched the
program to help consumers
cope with the high price of


prescription drugs.
The county is making
the free prescription drug
discount cards available
under a program sponsored
by the National Association
of Counties (NACo) that
offers average savings of 20
percent off the retail price of
commonly prescribed drugs.
The cards may be used
by all county residents,
regardless of age, income,
or existing health coverage,


and are accepted at all of
the county's pharmacies. A
national network of more
than 57,000 participating
retail pharmacies also honors
the Levy County Discount
Card Program.
Cards are available at all
pharmacies and many county
offices. County residents can
call toll-free 1-877-321-2652
or visit www.naco.advancrx.
com for assistance with this
program.


"Using the NACo
prescription discount card
is easy," said Commissioner
Rooks. "Simply present it
to a participating pharmacy.
There is no enrollment form,
no membership fee and
no restrictions or limits on
frequency of use. Cardholders
and their family members
may use the card any time
their prescriptions are not
covered by insurance."


Morriston author will pen Levy history


Wants to include your stories


Morriston resident
Drollene P. Brown, author
of children's biographies and
family histories, is collecting
stories and memories from
Levy County residents for
a book to be published by
Southern Heritage' Press,.
a publisher known for its
slogan: "because a book
never forgets."
Brown's new book,
tentatively titled Levy County:
Voices from the Past, will be
based on histories provided
by people living in Levy
County now, as well as by
others who may have moved
away but still have ties to the
county.
"We don't plan to use
genealogies," Brown says.
"We're interested in the
stories, the tales handed down
from one generation to the
next. The memories of times
past, the changes that have
occurred in the county over a
lifetime-these will form the
basis of the book."
Brown hopes civic
organizations and, p:hurches
will get behind the project
so that 'their leaders can
assist members writing their
memories.
To that end, she will be
available in September,
October and November to
appear before organizations
and church fellowships
explaining the. type of
information she needs.
Churches and organizations
are invited to submit their
histories, as well.
Information is being
accepted now. Each
submission should start with
the name, phone number and
(optional) e-mail address of
the person submitting the


DOLLENE BROWN


material. Second should be
.the date when the person's
first ancestors(s) moved to
Levy County, their name and
where they came from.
With every event described,
a. date or period of time
should be stated. Dates are
important because the book
will be, written i as one-' long'
narrative-one seamless-
history of the county with all
the individuals' stories woven
in.
Brown is especially
interested in humorous
or significant stories that
have been handed down in
families from one generation
to another. She is looking
for family stories about the
earliest years in Levy County
as well as memories ofcurrent
residents. Submissions can be
about anything-courtships,
special family traditions,
achievements, everyday life,
or business-as-usual.
Southern Heritage Press
has been publishing high


school and college yearbooks
in Florida for 35 years.
In the mid 1980s 'the
company began publishing
histories for churches,
military units, counties and
cities. These include histories
for Suwannee, Hamilton,
Bradford and Gilchrist
counties; Pasco, Lake and
Hardee counties have books
in progress. City histories
published by SHP include St.
Petersburg, Largo, Dunedin
and Loxahatchee. A book
about Williston is, nearly
ready to go to press.
Known in the Williston
area for columns written for
local newspapers, Brown has
edited, written and worked
as a ghostwriter for several
dozen books. Most recently
she created the narrative for
the Williston history book,
titled Williston: Crossroads
of Florida. It is important
to note that nothing will be
taken from the Williston book
to inform the Levy County
book. This is a completely
different project and she urges

Commission hears plan to recover accident costs


News Briefs


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Chiefland Police Chief
Robert Douglas' idea to
recover costs on automobile
accident investigations took:
on a new twist last week.
Regina Moore, a
representative of Cost
Recovery Corporation,
spoke to the city commission
at Douglas' request and
explained how her company
operates.
SThe Dayton, Ohio-based
firm works to recover costs
incurred by fire and police
departments investigating
automobile accidents.
Police and fire departments
run up these costs when
they are "reacting to a civil
situation, not a law or safety
issue," according to Moore.
The agency submits claims to
insurance companies based on
paperwork submitted to them
by the police departments.
Since payment is not
required 'under federal law,
the claims are request-based.
Payment is up to the discretion


of the insurance companies.
Concerns raised by
commissioners included
Alice Monyei's comment
that the firm had already been
turned down by the city of
Ocala.
Moore countered that the
city is actually taking a second
look at the service. Monyei
also questioned the payment
response of 50 percent.
"We will posture ourselves
exactly how you want us to,"
said Moore, indicating that
they would, if necessary,
aggressively seek. the
voluntary payment.
Moore also indicated that
since so many non-residents
come through the area,
the company could more
aggressively pursue non-
residents who are engaged in
accidents in Levy County.
City attorney Norm Fugate
mentioned that this service
had already been on the
agenda once, and that the new
ordinance presented nothing
new.
"My bottom-line concerns

while Police Chief Robert Douglas listens.


are that this presents a type
of user fee that has not been
tested legally in the state of
Florida," Fugate said. "There
could be questions raised as
to whether those are duties
municipalities and police are
required to perform."
The attorney raised
additional concerns about
apparent discriminatory
issues such as the more


aggressive pursuit of the city
picking and choosing whom
the company goes after for
payment.
Fugate mentioned that
he had sent commissioners
several emaiis discussing
the service and that a new
agreement is being drawn up.
No action was taken on this
item during the meeting.


Vaccination clinic planned She's a Winner


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.
Medicarewill 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, Comnmunicable Disease Department. .
Cost of a flu shot is $25, pneumonia vaccination is,$40 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.

YOUR VIEW


I am not your enemy

To the editor:
If I have said anything that upset you it was not my inten-
tion and I am truly sorry. Let love and harmony return to our
meetings. I've sat through two meetings where an unruly
audience shouted threats and insults at three commissioners.
Verbal intimidation and insults are weapons just as guns and
knives are.
This hatred affects those sending it as well as those receiv-
ing it. Isn't it time for healing?
You will keep the police department, as is and at their in-
creased pay. That issue was on the table for discussion only
and at an ad valorem tax budget hearing. That tax probably
involved only a few of those present.
The commission elects a president and a vice-president
every year. They are required by code, Sec. 2-32 to conduct
the meetings, unless by majority vote they let the mayor act
as chairman. Late in 2002 the commission president was
Paul McKee who was chairman of all meetings. When he
asked the mayor to act as chairman, the majority voted for it.
It was on the agenda Sept. 12, 2006 that Commissioner
Kellman, who was president of the commission, wanted the
chairing of town meetings restored to the president or vice-
president of the commission. By majority vote of the com-
mission, Drinda Merritt was selected to chair meetings.
At the budget hearing on the ad valorem tax Aug. 31, 2006
the commission was faced with an unruly mass of people in
the audience shouting threats and hurling insults at us on the
subject of reducing the police force. This lasted 4 -1/2 hours
and was only on the table and not up for a vote.
Jesus Is Ministries was there and surrounded by many
people wearing "Jesus Is" T-shirts. I assumed that they were
with Jesus Is and called Jeff Adams to ask him not to bring
an unruly crowd to a meeting. It was a question of audience
civility only. He said they were not with him, but had just
bought T-shirts. Jeff has a big Christian heart and has ironed
out all misunderstandings since then.
Doug Stout of Dan's Mobile Home Park was there next
to a group of shouting, insulting park residents. I called him
and said the question was civility and I didn't want unruly
people disrupting a town meeting. I heard later that park
residents weren't wanted. This was taken out of context on
"civility."
Everyone is welcome at a public meeting, whether they
pay taxes, vote or rent. They are required to act properly or
they can be escorted out. This action was not taken at two
meetings. Chief Billups told me he only responds to a com-
mand by the chairman with the gavel. The mayor is cer-
emonial head of the town and has lost none of her powers.

Board of County
Commissioners

is kinder and way
more tolerate than I am.
Last week after two
separate public hearings,
the county commissioners
must have left with bloody
tongues, high blood pres-
sure and an uncontrollable
urge to invest in some primal
screaming.
I did.
Any time a government
body starts messing with a
man's (or woman's) pock-
etbook you can bet dollars
to donuts that emotions are
going to be high,' empers
will flare and the worst of the
beast will manifest itself.
And what transpired in
Courtroom A last Monday
and Tuesday nights was testi-
mony to that, times 10.
As first an American, and
then a journalist, there is no
one who supports freedom of
speech any more than I do.
For generations, the men
in my family have fought on
foreign soil to ensure that
most basic of freedoms be
preserved.
But last week's assess-
ments and TRIM hearings
brought an onslaught of
people who could not be
reasoned with and when
attempts were made, they
became rude and hostile.
Enough.
I mean it.
Enough is enough and too
much is nasty.
There is no reason for
anyone, even paid public
servants, to have to sit there
for three or more hours and
bear the brunt of abuse that
Danny Stevens, Lilly Rooks,
Sammy Yearty and Tony
Parker did.
No matter how you may
feel about them, about their

politics, about how they
handle themselves as they
represent you, there is no ex-
cuse ... none for the blatant
rudeness they each had to
endure.
Yearty, acting as chair-
man fora vacationing Nancy
Bell, tried to maintain deco-
rum as each of the hearings
began. He told the packed
courtroom the format for the
meeting and said everyone
would have an opportunity to
speak-everyone.
Order lasted less than 10
minutes.
People strayed from the
subject, and rather than cut
them off, Yearty allowed
them to continue airing their
concerns.
People repeated them-
selves over and over and
over, and each time voices
got a little louder.
Some even tried talking
over others.
Where were their man-
ners? Don't we all want to
be respected and talked to
civilly without becoming
barbarians?
I can assure you, that
when several people are talk-
ing at once and each is trying
to out-voice the other, no one
gets heard. Any point, no
matter how valid or correct,
gets lost in the cacophony,
a meaningless mixture of
sounds.
As a reporter, I am trained
to listen and observe.
Last week, it was nearly


impos-
sible to do
' either.
I was
thorough-
ly embar-
rassed by
what went
on in that


courtroom
those two
nights and
I was even taken aback when
it seemed the vocal dissent-
ers might get physical. The
potential for real harm was
there, and obviously Yearty
thought so, too, or he would
not have had the county
coordinator alert the sheriff's
department to the action in
the arena.
Yes, people have a.right
to speak. But like everything
else in this life, there have to
be parameters in place and
there must be consequences
for reoccurence.
And that alleged obscenity
that was referenced?
It was indeed shouted.
Loudly. And another one
followed.
And while they are
phrases used daily and have
become an accepted part of
our lexicon,:it was not the
place to be crying foul.
This is the third time in
a month that mob rule has
threatened to take over pub-
lic meetings in Levy County
and it's time something is
done to prevent any future
action.
I have also lived by the
rule if you know of a prob-
lem, before you complain
about it, you better have a
solution to present.
So while I am complaining
about the chaos that nearly
destroyed two critical hear-
ings last week, I challenge
all government agencies to
adopt some rules on public


comment and then enforce
them.
A three-minute egg timer
is a cheap, effective way to
rein in the person who thinks
he has to become a filibuster
to get his point across.
The public should be told
up front it has three minutes
to say its piece and each
person is allowed one time at
the microphone. That's fair
and more often than not, any
point can be driven home in
three minutes.
If someone cannot comply
with the guidelines, there
are usually law enforce-
ment agents around who can
escort them out.
A little parental common
sense needs to come into
being ... if you're in my
house, you play by my rules.
I believe it is important to
be passionate about things
we believe in. I also believe
that passion needs to be
channeled into something
positive.
Last week's meetings
left me with only negative
feelings and rather than
championing the plight of
the taxpayer, I found myself
shaking my head.
Rules. Despite how much
we bellyache them from
childhood to adulthood, we
all need them.
Levy County is not an an-
archy. We must-also act like
civilized people. The South
is known for its genteel spirit
and acute politeness, both
absent last week.
When we ask rhetorically
about what has happened to
today's youth, we only need
look at their parents.
And that saddens me.

Wonderful wildlife encounter at home


Have always loved
animals, but I
especially love birds.
When I was about 5, I had
found a cardinal nest about
5 feet up in a bush beside
our house. Wanting to touch
and hold the brilliant and
lively creatures I could see
- the parents who were
swooping on me to deter me
- I climbed up on a chair
and found the fuzzy babies
in their nest. Now, I can't
say why, but I went into the
house and got an omelet
pan; the kind with the two
halyes and the hinge in the
middle. I put it on the ground
beneath the tree and pulled
handfuls of grass and placed
them in the two sides of the
pan. Then, I climbed back
up and carefully took the
babies in my little hands, one
at a time, and placed them in
their new nest on the ground.
All the while their frantic
parents swooped and dived
at me to no avail.
In a few minutes my
mother came outside to see
what all the commotion was
about. She had, no doubt,
heard the cardinals' frenzied
calls and the absence of
noise from me in the house.
My mother found me and
my nest of baby cardinals on.
the ground and, of course,
not being 5 years old she-
didn't understand what made
perfect sense to me. I wailed
as she sternly told me to
go in the house and I know
from what she told me years
later that she tenderly put the
babies back into their nest as
quickly as she could and left,
hoping the parents wouldn't
abandon them.
I guess I inherited my
love of animals mostly from
my mother. She told me and
my sister and brother that
she once ~i p $~'a in

in the 1930s and people

the time.

had gone ROBIN HEATH

into the Guest Columnist
basement
for some reason and the bat
had escaped from the cage.
Forty years later my mother
still laughed at the memory
of him fruitlessly chasing the
bat around the basement with
a broom.
So, now I come to the
most recent cherished
experience of an encounter
with a wild bird. On Friday
night my husband and I
decided to make a late trip
to Wal-Mart. It was dark and
as we pulled up to our gate
I spotted a small fat gray
bird sitting on the corer
of the gate. I said, "Stop!
Stop! Look, a screech owl!"
Oddly enough, my husband
and I had been talking about
screech owls only a day or
so before. He had never seen
one. My husband stopped
the car and we both sat
there amazed that we were
so close to this little wild
predator. The front of our
car with the headlights on
was only a foot or two away
from the gate, and the bird
continued to sit there turning
its head back and forth
watching for some small
movement in the grass.
I was thrilled. I was also
sorry that I didn't have my
camera with me. I just knew
that I could get a picture of
the owl. We sat there for a
few minutes watching and
ten'myi iinusbanad i d the

owl didn't budge. As we
traveled a few feet down the


road I said, "I wonder if he
will stay there long enough
for me to get my camera?"
My sweet husband asked,
"Do you want to go get
it?" I said yes and he drove
back along the side of our
property to our house and I
ran in and out as quickly as I
could.
We returned to the gate
and I was half holding my
breath, hoping the owl would
still be there. He was! I was
so happy. As my husband
drove the car up parallel with
our gate, the owl continued
to sit there as if this was
routine. I stayed in the car
within about 7 feet of the
little guy and snapped some
pictures. Amazingly, the -
flash seemed not to bother
him. At one point, he flew
silently down in front of
our car and grabbed a moth,
and then flew back up to our
fence to watch for more tasty.
moths or mice. My husband,
seeing that the little owl was
totally unconcerned with our
presence, got out of the car
and walked slowly to within
five feet of where he sat on
the fence. I thought that,
surely, the small creature'
would be afraid of a 6 foot
tall man coming so close,
but there he sat. He took a
couple of pictures too and
then returned to the car. I
would have sat there until the
owl went on his way, but:my
husband is not quite as big a
nut as I. So we left him there
to his hunting. All in all, we
spent about 15 minutes with
the charming little bird.,
As you can tell from the
picture, he was only about 8
inches tall from the tip of his
stubby little point of a tail to
the top of his head. He was
no taller than the 1x8 boards
on our fence.

a turtle crossing the road and a
motorist had stopped to help it
across. I glanced back and noticed

Keeping an attitude of gratitude...


The December sun had begun its lazy plunge toward the
western hills by the time my brother Heath and I parked
along the little gravel road that snaked its way through
the vast expanse of government woods. Gathering up our
rifles;we jumped the ditch and plunged into the deep briars
and thickets that lined the forest's edge. They raked loudly
against our camouflage, announcing our arrival and ruling
out any slip we may have pulled on a buck.
Ten grueling minutes later we had still not broken into
open woods. We stopped for a breather; our chests heaving,
and the crisp winter air stinging our lungs. Heath looked
S like a big worn out Ninja turtle with that big climbing stand
strapped to his back and I said as much. He ignored me.
Steam was rising from his collar and it reflected in his tone.
"Whose idea was it to try this place," he panted, "It ain't
nothing but a briar patch." I nodded, leaning heavily on my
gun and replied, "At least we're going down hill." He turned
on me, "Well that's great Nimrod. What does that say for
our trip back?" I bristled and stomped off through the briars.
"Justtfollow me," I huffed, "You're the one don't know
where he's going."
Farther along the grade became steeper an We 'fd dMA'6ur
path blocked by some fallejb~ J r Tl4utth-e1
impenetrable patches df brambles we had yet encountered.
The way was as thick and ornery as my attitude had become,
and as I paused to consider our choices, Heath made a move
to go around. He was intent on recovering his spot at point
and in desperation I leaped up on a stump and scoffed,
"What? You a sissy? You scared to climb over it?" I inched
my way on out on a decaying old branch, "Look," I assured
him,'"We'll just tightrope this limb on out and then swing
down into that little clearing below." It wasn't much of a
plan, but I guess you could say I was already out on a.limb
now. Heath had obviously watched enough "America's
Funniest Home Videos" to recognize the set up for the
$10,000 clip when he saw it. "You first," he dared. As I
inched out farther it became painfully evident I was going to
have to turn back and eat crow. Then I got an idea. If I could

hopping on
the limb like
a rabid monkey. The old dry wood creaked and popped but
it shot me 4 or 5 feet up into the air with each jump. Then
came.that rare moment when Heath would have traded his
rifle for a video camera. To his delight the whole shebang
snapped clean. The limb crashed to the ground just in time
to cause another sharp stick to jut straight upward for my
dismount, and I guess you could say I stuck the landing.
In fact I came within one inch of becoming a human shish
kebob!
I balanced on that stout little stick for several
:~ipfrf(tggly long seconds, suddenly grateful for that little
bone running along my undercarrage that kept me from
becoming impaled. The whole experience made my ensuing
plop to the ground and head over heels tumble down the
ridge seem like a walk in the park. "Thank you Jesus! Thank
you Jesus! Thank you Jesus," I shouted the whole way down
over the loud cackle of Heath's laughter.
There was a time in my life that I would have cussed
Heath, the limb, the tree, and every other inanimate object
out there in the forest that day. Before I met Jesus I wasn't
always so tolerable to be around. At least now I aspire to
behave a little differently in light of 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In
every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ
Jesus concerning you. I'm not bragging, but giving thanks
during that uncontrollable downhill tumble was quite a test
of my faith in Romans 8:28! And we know that all things

work together for good to them that love God, to them who
are the called according to his purpose.
Sadly, hardships are a very real part of life in this fallen
world. I realize many of you have endured terrible tragedies
and face tremendous obstacles even today. Maybe you feel
like your life is tumbling out of control? Don't give up. It
may not make sense to your natural mind, but I encourage
you to give God thanks. Jonah did from the belly of a
big fish! But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of
thanksgiving; I will pay thee that I have vowed. Salvation
is of the LORD. Jonah 2:9. Jonah finally realized where his
help would come from. Your thanksgiving moves you into
the presence of God, and there your answer lies.
But anyway, obviously I didn't choose the best way out
of the briars that day, but I guess you could say I learned
a thing or two. I learned to give thanks for the,little things
because it could always be worse. Ask poor ole' laughing
Heath vho was still stuck up there in thebriars! See, there's
always a reason to give thanks.

BES holds


successful Family


Learning Night

Bronson Elementary School held the first Family Learn-
ing Night of the 2006-2007 school year last Thursday night.
The evening was hosted by the third grade team and featured
book talks, guest readers, parent education, and face painting.
There was learning and fun for the whole family. "The night
was a great success! We had over 50 students bring out their
parents for the evening," says third grade teacher and FLN
co-producer, April Rogers.
Those who attended were treated to face paintings by art
teacher Debbie Manansala and heard the favorite books of
guest readers Jenni Huguley, Mary Jo Smith, and Levy Coun-
ty Director of Literacy Linda Durrance. Students and parents
also heard book talks presented by third grade teachers Heidi
Bon, Caryl Carlisle ard Marlene Nobles. Dressed as the Cat
in the Hat and displaying some appropriate props, Carlisle de-
scribed her favorite Dr. Seuss classic, Green Eggs and Ham.
While students were being read to, parents were learning as
well. Michael Homan, the reading coach at BES, described a
grant the school has received to help fund the Family Learn-
ing Nights. "A major component of the grant focuses on edu-
cating parents on reading issues, and, in turn, inviting those
parents back into the classroom to share skills they've learned
with students," Homan explained. Parents were also taught
about reading fluency and developing questioning skills while
they read at home with their children.
Carolyn Lewis, a veteran third grade teacher, manned the
computer lab where some families chose to read Accelerated
Reader books and take tests on the computer, while others
read newspapers and magazines together. "We want to shift
the focus of the Family Learning Nights from strictly AR
reading and test-taking. AR is an excellent tool for motivat-
ing some readers, but we don't want to limit our students. We
want them to find their own joy in reading and share that with
their families, whether it is AR books, non AR books, non-fic-
tion materials, newspapers, magazines, or whatever," states
Marlene Nobles.
The next Family Learning Night is Thursday, Sept. 28 from
3:30-6:30 p.m. and will be hosted by the fifth grade team. All
BES students and their parents are invited out for an after-
noon of math and reading activities for the whole family.

Grandparents have fun day with their grandchildren at CES


BY REGINA NEWTON
SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL

I am so pleased to say that our "Grandparents' Day Activi-
ties and Picnic" were a huge success! We had over 27 special
grandparents attend our festivities.
The students put a lot of preparation into this big day. With
the assistance of our parent volunteers, the students made
lunches of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and fresh fruit
and vegetables for both themselves and for their grandpar-
ents. The students also made their own homemade chocolate
chip cookies for dessert and brewed iced-tea and made lem-
onade. In addition, the children wrote stories about why their
grandparents) are so special, they made cards, they decorated
the lunch bags, decorated nametags, and finally they made
gifts to give to give to the grandparents. The entire class was
so busy working to get all of this done that they didn't even
have time for recess or rest on this day!


KYLE PRISE-SAGE SHARES his grandpa with
shows off his prepared goodies to Tom Brown.


On Friday, the day of the picnic, our grandparents arrived,
visited and had a tour of the classroom. They also experienced
the daily routine of what it is like to be in kindergarten.
Granparents also read to student and those whose grandpar-
ents could not attend buddied-up with another child's grand-
parent for the day.
Students and grandparents were given an assignment to
complete together by creating a "family tree", but this was
not an ordinary family tree project, as you might guess. They
were to trace the child's hand and arm, up to the elbow. Then
the child cut this out, and it became the branches and trunk of
the tree.
I will be displaying these "family trees" in the hallway, out-
side our classroom door, along with a picture of each group
creating the trees. Please stop by and see this new hallway
display. It will be up by Sept. 23, which is the first official
day of fall.
After completing the family trees, the grandparents and
special buddies read books to
the children and they helped
the students complete "draw-
ing book reports." Then,
the children passed out their
cards and gifts to their grand-
.- .. parents.
At the picnic, the students
proudly handed each grand-
parent a sack lunch that he/
she had prepared with much
time and love the day before.
The students were pleased to
hear what "great cooks" their
grandparents thought they
were. We said our good-byes
to our very special guests and
told them thank you for par-
ticipating in this fun-filled
day!

Watching the plot unfold


Growing up in the '70s and '80s,
I became used to the NASCAR
of that era. I looked forward
to races at Rockingham and North
Wilkesboro, the Southern 500 being run
every Labor Day weekend, the Fourth of
July race at Daytona named the Firecracker
400, men who were more guff and spit than
spokesman.
Men with names like Earnhardt, Petty,
Waltrip, Allison and Pearson manhandled
their automobiles when they wanted to pass
someone.
For me, like most people, that part of
my childhood was romantic and heroic.
Of course, also like most of us, inside
my mind I probably have a somewhat
exaggerated memory of what those times
were really like, but it was its significance
was important to me.
If it worked for my grandfather and my
father then why wouldn't it work for me?
However, as we all know life changes and
those of us who want to prosper need to do
the same.
I had accepted NASCAR no longer
being run with the heroic and valiant
pilots of my youth. I had accepted the old
beat-up tracks in the middle of nowhere
being replaced by modem and perfectly
diametrical ones. I had even accepted the
big boats that seemed to always have open
space where advertising was supposed
to be for the sleeker, more aerodynamic
automobiles of the 20th century.
After all it was what was best for
NASCAR and as much as I hate to admit
it, the change meant the sport was growing
and getting what it needed most, attention
beyond its southeastern roots for the first
time.
But when Mike Helton announced the
Chase For the Cup three years ago, it was
too much. As if the other changes weren't
enough. Nov; NASCAR wanted to have f
playoff system?
What I particularly disliked about it was
that the driver or drivers who were leading
the pack in the points' standings had spent
two-thirds of the season building a lead.
Now it was being reduced to a measly 50
points.
And why were the drivers who were
too far behind in the points' standings to
win the title being given an opportunity to
win the championship when those higher
in the standings had done what they were
supposed to all year.
Unlike other sports, in racing there were
no second opportunities. It made the sport
uncommon. The drivers had one shot to
get it right or they would find themselves
,too far behind in the closing races for it to
matter.
SWell folks, I was.wrong. Instituting
a playoff system has made for some'
spectacular scenarios, twists, turns,
suspense and uniqueness or if you prefer
dramatic plots.
With the third edition of the chase for the
cup beginning last Sunday, the absence of
defending points champion Tony Stewart
made it clear its atmosphere lends itself
to a gradually building crescendo which
culminates in the final race or even the last
laps of the season.
Among the other notables who failed to
qualify for the chase this year were Greg
Biffle, Carl Edwards and Ryan Newman.
Biffle and Newman had the kind of season
that announced they had arrived as a part
of that elite group of drivers. Newman
of course is a member of the younger
generation, who was thought to be ready to
step in and fill the void left by the heroes of
past generations.
In their stead Jeff Burton, Kasey Kahne,

Denny Hamlin and Kyle Busch have made for
distinguished stories. Burton, who in the mid-
'90s was a hotshot young lion making a name
for himself with four straight top five finishes
in the final season points standings, has
found his way once again and seems ready to
make another charge to claim a spot among
NASCAR's heroes. He has done this with
the premiere owner, of the '80s and early '90s,
Richard Childress, who seemed to have also
lost his way about the same time as his driver.
With Kevin Harvick leading the standings and
Burton not far behind, Childress looks like he
just might return to the champions' podium at
the Waldorf in November.
Kahne, after having to settle for 11th place
in the point standings during the chase's first
two years by the scantest of margins, finally
broke through this year.
One has to wonder with the recent turmoil
ofthe Jeremy Mayfield-Ray Evernham
relationship; perhaps Dodge's flagship outfit
will finally take the next step in fulfilling
some of the promise that began when the
owner left Jeff Gordon.
In Hamlin, perhaps Gibbs has found a
running partner for the soon to be former
champion, in much the same way that Stewart
was to Labonte. In one short year this crew
chief's son has risen to prominent status and
made a name for him. He is not only a man
to look for and compete with the other young
lions, like Johnson, Kahne and Newman, but
his owner now has two men who the press
keep their eye on.
While Busch runs for Hendricks, the same
is true of his rise this year and participation in
the chase.
Let's not forget the most grizzled of all the
regulars on the circuit, Mark Martin. Without
the chase he would have had another top five
points finish, but rode off into the sunset (or
so we think) without ever having claimed
the title. That would have seemed just plain
Wrong for a man who has done so much for
the sport and represented it so well. He now
gets one last shot at the glory he deserves with
the playoff.
Last year it was the mighty Jeff Gordon
and the man tabbed the leader of the new
era, by many advertisements, Dale Earnhardt
Jr., who missed the chase. That thought was
incomprehensible.when the season began and
unbelievable when it happened.
Both teams rebounded with'a single
purpose and focus this year, to qualify for the
chase. In years past, while they would have
had seasons to be proud of, they would never
have had the opportunity to win the title in the
last 10 races. It makes for some interesting
variables on how they handle the return to the
chase after the disappointment of last season.
And let's not forget the 11th place finisher.
That honor went to Gordon last year and
he used it as the spearhead for this year's
qualification in the chase and, of course, there
is also that issue of one million dollars being
awarded to the team. Who will be this year's
man just outside the circle of the best drivers?
So as I have taken a look at just a few of
the plotlines in this year's chase, I raise my
hand to salute Mike Helton, the France family
and the rest of the powers that be. While
it might not be as noticeable as television
shows, racing has always had its soap opera
like plotlines. As a sports journalist, even the
stories I don't cover, there is a certain aura
of enjoyment to watching plots and drama
unfold and seeing how things shake out as
well as where it leaves the principles. A host
of plotlines and drama abound at each and
every race during the chase. The theater of
the chase has given me something new and
exclusive to look forward to every year.

After playing hard, but

with 2.4
seconds left as
the Buccaneers
drove 80 yards in the closing
minutes.
"It'was a hard fought
game," Bronson head coach
Greg Brochetti said. "It was
a match-up of two evenly
matched teams fighting it
out and it could have gone
either way. We are young
and still making those kinds
of mistakes, but we keep
improving every week., I
am proud of their effort and
hopefully we can win soon.
We only have four returning

with any experience at all."
The Eagles broke out in

to take a 7-0 lead. It gave the
home team momentum and
was the latest at any time in a
game this season they held the
lead. The Buccaneers would
answer with two consecutive

third period on a rushing play.

that. We played with them
for four quarters and it will
help our confidence. We are
heading in the right direction.
I hope we can win soon and
make the guys efforts pay
off."
Brochetti was also pleased
with his
freshman
quarterback's
play. He made
good while
his stats six
completions
S in eleven
attempts were
not outstanding, he made good
decisions and did not put the
defense in a difficult position
while throwing for the Eagles'
lone touchdown. While the
team as a whole played well
and showed improvement, the
quarterback's action because
he is the focal point, set the
tone and pace for the Eagles.
Losing by a combined
score of 90-25 in their first
three games, the seven-point
loss was also a point to hang
their hat on.
After losing the district
opener, the Eagles will host
non-district foe, St. John
Lutheran, next week. It is the
last of four consecutive home
contests before the Eagles
embark on a two game road
trip against district foes.
Brochetti is hoping the home
field advantage will help the
Eagles carry their momentum
and confidence, against a
tough opponent.

performance on the ground
and eight sacks defensively,
the Williston Red Devils
passed another test with
relative ease in their quest to
build a formidable program
with a 41-14 victory over the
Dunnellon Tigers.
Led by quarterback Devin
Timmons, the Red Devils
made the most of their
opportunity to erase the
memory of last year's loss to
Dunnellon and put themselves
in a position to control their
own destiny in the chase for
the district title. In winning
for the eighth time in their
last eleven games, Williston
now stands atop the class
3A-District, 5 standings at 1-
0 with defending champion
North Marion.
"We executed our offense
well," head coach Jamie
Baker said. "We keep getting
better every week and it is a
matter of approaching each
game the same way and
doing the same things so
we get better at it. Which is
what we are doing. This was
another test to see if we could
consistently keep doing the
same things, because they are
a good team, and we passed it.
To come out and win a district
game decisively, against a
team we lost to last year is a
huge confidence builder and
defeating one of the district
favorites is big."
After learning from their
mistakes of a year ago, the
Red 'Devils continued their
streak of getting off to a quick
start by building 14-0 and 21-
7 leads. Nonetheless, when
a 64-yard end around dash
on the right side by Juwan
Franklin cut the lead to seven
points early in the fourth
quarter, suddenly there was
the possibility of Williston
losing after appearing to
have a significant and district-
defining victory in the bag.
But under the guidance
of head coach Jamie Baker,
this is a team that has come
of age. They proved it with
a quick and convincing
response. Understanding the
urgency of the moment, the

found another gear, recaptured
the momentum
and scored three
unanswered
touchdowns.
Evans' 10-yard
touchdown run
90 seconds later
re-established the
14-point lead for
the Red Devils.
It took Williston
only 4 plays,
while chewing
up 63 yards to regain control
of the game.
"Dunnellon is a good
team," Baker said. "And
good teams get those kinds of
plays. We told our kids not
to get their heads down and
keep. doing what they were
doing. Adversity happens'
against good teams and we
showed we could pass that
test as well."'
Timmons scored the fifth
touchdown of the night on a
running play. Mario Brown
finished the scoring on a
touchdown plunge from the
two-yard line in the closing
seconds.

attack, it was the Red Devils'
defense that put them in that
position. Picking off the
Tigers' quarterback Andrew
Stichter three times and giving


up under 200 yards of total
offense to their opponents,
Williston had excellent field
position almost every time the
offense took over possession
of the ball. In fact, other than
Franklin's 64-yard strike, the
Red Devils
surrendered
less than
150 yards of
total offense.
Williston's
defense limited
the Tigers to
88 yards of
passing and
sacked the
opponents'
quarterback
five times, disrupting and
confusing the visitors' offense
quite frequently.
Dunnellon head coach
Frank Beasley acknowledged
Williston's use of their
players in the box made for
easy blitzing, which was
further complicated by the
Red Devils speed and their
ability to be physical.
"The defense is what
allowed us to get the early
lead," Baker said. "They
got turnovers, had several
three and outs and gave our
offense good field position.
They were aggressive and
used their speed well. Our
defense is playing well and
the offense has confidence in
them. Of course; the same
is true of the defense having
confidence in the offense."
The game started with both
teams exchanging possession
of the ball twice, before

Williston opened the scoring
with an 8-play, 62-yard drive.
Minor drew first blood and put
his team ahead to stay with
3:51 left in the first quarter on
his four-yard touchdown run.
Mario Brown's interception
off of Stichter on the Tigers'
opening drive set the tone
for the defense and swung
the battle for field possession
in the Red Devils favor.
The Red Devils' defense
followed the score by forcing
the Tigers into a three and
out possession. When Todd
Brown gained 35 yards on the
ensuing punt return, it set up
Williston to take a 14-point
lead. White made it a reality
with an 11-yard ramble,
avoiding several Tigers with
jukes while twisting around
their grasp.
After the visitors cut the
lead to 14-7 just before
halftime, Jiwan James hauled
in a spectacular one-handed
catch in the corer of the end
zone. During the early rush
of big plays, James also came
up with an interception that
ended another Dunnellon
drive.
Evans led the rushing
attack with 84 yards on 12.
White also had 67 yards on


12 carries. The three other
backs contributed a combined
total of 127 yards.
The win ups the Red
Devils overall record to 3-1.


They travel to Dixie County
next week for a non-district
contest and another chance
to prime themselves for the
rigors of district play.

Hermansen said
that each year a
proclamation is signed by the president calling for the third
Friday in September to be set aside in recognition of the
nation's missing soldiers. A resolution establishing the day
was originally passed by Congress in 1979, and the black and
white flag introduced in 1982.
Hermansen then acknowledged the area's two former
POWs: Charlie Combs, who was held by the Japanese for 49
months in World War II, and Clayton Galarneau, who was
captured in Korea and held for three years.
Both men attended the ceremony with their wives.
Approximately 150 attended Friday's service.

Charlie Combs
Charlie Combs made a career of military service. This is not
so significant in these United States until one considers that he
spent his first few years as a Marine in a Japanese prisoner of
war camp. He originally signed up as a young man just prior
to World War II. His first tour of duty took him to the island of
Guam. He said, "The governor of the island was a naval rear
admiral. He had us Marines there serving as police. We were
just a small detachment, and I think somehow the Japanese
knew, because three days after Pearl Harbor they landed on
Guam." Combs figures they knew since only a small landing
party invaded the island.

happened during the next 45 months-all of them in captivity
to the Japanese-he remains struck.,by what happened soon

Museum history goes to printer
BY WINNELLE HORNE
CORRESPONDENT
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 14, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. What a busy day we had!
Quilters from the Anthony Quilt Club came over to visit
and it made for a day of fellowship and exchanging ideas.
Quilters always have much to talk about and it was good
to have them over.
Next Thursday night will be Law Apprediation Night
and we hope to have many out to support the men and
women who keep us safe.
At last, our history of the museum is at the Print Shop
and we look forward to seeing it published.
It has taken many hours to write, to get names spelled,
pictures to go with the stories, trying to remember not
to leave anyone or anything out, we do have a record of
everything that was made, all the quilts and crafts that
have been done since Oct. 7, 1983. One day we will count
the quilts that have been done.
Lunch was so good; we were all hungry for chicken,
eggplant, corn, squash casseroles, fried eggplant, kraut
and hotdogs, beans, salads, Marie's chocolate pie, Betty's
coconut pie, Doris' pound cake and so much more.
We had 14 members and nine guests present.
Winnelle Home is the director of the Levy County
Quilt Museum, Inc.

Patrol car hits man in Inglis


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Florida Highway Patrol
Sgt. James Barber reported
an accident between a Levy
County Sheriff's vehicle
and a privately .owned van
approximately four miles
north of Inglis last Friday.
Levy County Deputy-
Sheriff Kenneth Maddox of
Bronson hit a van driven by
Kurtis Tharp of Tampa.
The accident occurred in
the cross-over median after
Maddox failed to notice
Tharp's van traveling south.
Maddox was attempting to
turn west at King's Road.
Tharp braked and veered to
his right in an attempt to avoid


being hit. Tharp lost control of
his vehicle upon impact. The
impact forced his vehicle first
to the left shoulder of the road,
then back into southbound
lanes -before overturning.
Emergency Medical Services
responded and took Tharp
and his passenger, Gary
Grear of Tampa, to Seven
Rivers Hospital for treatment
of minor injuries.
Damage to the van, a 2006
Chrysler, was estimated at
$18,000. The deputy's four-
door, 2004 Ford received
$5,000 in damages.
All involved were wearing
seat belts and alcohol was
not involved. Charges are
pending.

Ride to Provide Sept. 16,2006


RIDERS AND LARC CLIENTS pose for a group shot at the Otter Creek LARC headquarters during Saturday's ride.


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Participants in the area's first annual Ride to Provide found
sunny skies and a pleasant breeze Saturday. Approximately
130 riders on 90 motorcycles turned out for the LARC (Levy
County Association of Retarded Citizens) benefit. Organizer
Deputy Sean Mullins, of Levy County Sheriff's Department,
said about $3,200 was raised.
"That's not bad for a first effort, is-it," he said. "One man
gave LARC clients rides on his bike. They were thrilled."
He continued, "If you've never been to LARC, you've
missed the most wonderful people in the world."


MOTORCYCLE RIDERS STOPPED at a restaurant in Chiefland at the end of Saturday's ride.

Bronson to see a nice home

owned the home came out
and asked me one question,
"Do you like turtles?"
I giggled and nervously
said, "Yes. Why?" and she told
me there were several gopher
tortoises on the property and
it was very important to her
that whoever the new owners
were would have respect for
the turtles and would help
protect them. I said, "I'm

It was not until the terrible

understood what the turtle

began to see it clearly. Just
as Cassandra had traveled to

relocated to greener pastures

decorum be maintained, that meeting agendas contain a
consent agenda section, and a waiver of rules clause.
Council members were also updated on the progress of
elections for a fire chief and heard a request for an increase
in fire department call rates. Increases in rates will help
firefighters engaged in major efforts. Volunteer firefighters
who respond to fires requiring many hours often miss work
and subsequent pay from day jobs; requested increases would
provide them some recompense for that lost pay.
SMayor Mongo informed council that, "Town Hall is
crumbling. It has been eaten out by termites." She added
that the brick structure is actually underpinned by wood, and
that wood has been compromised. Mongo suggested that
the structure be demolished, and temporary headquarters be
established for the town offices in the Jackson House.

cult to publicize their efforts. "We are working hard," he said.
"I think you will see results soon."
Bell asked that Henderson appear before the board quar-
terly to bring an update on what the council is doing.
Along the same lines geared toward economic develop-
ment, Williston City Manager Jim Coleman sought approval
to construct a CSX railroad spur near the industrial park.
Coleman told the commissioners there is a potential tenant
for the park that requires.rail access, but whether or not that
business comes, the spur is still.needed.
Cost of the additional rail spur will cost $3-4 million, Cole-
man said, and will come primarily from state funds.


MMayor


Bush also had called for a
special election after naming
Johannesson, Bowman and
Spetz to run the government
until the special election
could be held. In the Aug.
29 special election, Dawn
Clary, Douglas Dame, Larry
Feldhusen soundly defeated
Ralph Dixon, Ray Phares
and June Proffit. Clary, Dame
and Feldhusen ran as a block
aimed at controlling growth
in the area. Johannesson's,
Bowman's and Spetz's seats
were not up for re-election.
The resignations of the
mayor, her two council mem-
bers and the three earlier
council members were not
the only employees to recent-
ly quit. Others stepping down
include town clerk Debra
Stines; assistant to the clerk,
Laura Coyles; and Marinus
DeRijke, acting chair of the
planning and zoning depart-
ment.
George Lampka, who un-
til recently served on the
emergency financial manage-


Continued from front


ment board, said he had been
called and told that the mayor
had resigned. He said he cur-
rently has no role in the Yan-
keetown government.
"The charter of our emer-
gency management board
was technically up Sept. 13.
I am just now completing a
report for the governor on ac-
tions we took while active.
This resignation certainly
complicates things." He said
he was aware of problems
developers had in trying to'
present projects to the town,
and added that Florida Statute
requires that they be heard.
He said that as chair of the
emergency board he refused
to take a stand on the matter,
and added, "The town still
has three good council mem-
bers. They will survive."
Council member Larry
Feldhusen said he had heard
a rumor of the mayor's resig-
nation but had not seen a let-
ter. He said, "If it's true I am
somewhat surprised." He had
already seen the letter written


by Dan Bowman, and said he
wasn't sure what Bowman
was referring to when he stat-
ed how a few people could
affect many. "We just had'
an election and we (the three
elected council members)
received a solid two-thirds
majority. The town is firmly
in control and we are moving
forward."


Any action the governor
may take is currently un-
known.
According to his deputy
press secretary, Anthony De-
Luise, "This is an unexpected
turn of events. The resigna-
tion has only been received
this afternoon. The governor
is currently reviewing the
situation."

How to n

Proper autumn lawn care can
fortify plants for the winter, re-
gardless of the area of the coun-
try in which you live.
"An early fall lawn fertil-
ization...helps replenish the
nutrient supply that was used
up over the summer months, it
gives plant roots a heilthN start
for winter dormancy and it can
protect the plant from severe
cold / frost damage," says Karen
Cords, Technical and Training
Director at Massey Services,
a Florida lawn care company.
"Fall feeding is recommended
for many cool and warm season
grass types."
The key is to plan fall feeding
for when plants are still taking
up nutrients. While warm sea-
son grasses absorb root-fortify-
ing nutrients year round, cool
season grasses go dormant as the
days get cooler and shorter.
In the North and Northeast,
the best time for fall fertility is
usually until early September.
In the central "transition" states
plants tend to take up nutrients
-until early October. Further
south, fall feeding can be done
in late September or October.
"Fall is also an excellent time
to plant ornamentals in many
parts of the country. Make sure
you water new plantings well
if rainfall is scarce," she says.
"Don't forget to plant bulbs,
such as tulips, in the fall to en-
sure a colorful spring display."
Also make sure shrubs and


maintain your lawn in the fall

trees are properly mulched to maintain soil moisture, reduce, rectly around trunks of trees and F O R
help control soil temperatures, weed invasion, and enhance at- ornamental plants. A
