MANAGING EDITOR
Levy County Commis-
sion Chairwoman Nancy Bell
found herself standing alone
on a limb Monday night when
she asked the commissioners
to trim the budget and cut the
millage rate back to 7 mills.
After an hour-long public
hearing where more than a
dozen people spoke against
the proposed rate of 7.9 mills,


Interim


manager


named

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
The man selected as
Chiefland's next interim city
manwiger has served in that
spot? for other north central
Florida rural cities.
When Commissioner
Teresa Barron asked why he
left a recent position in Live
Oak, Matt Brock replied, "A
few cities remain in Florida
that are not ready for a
professional city manager.
Live Oak is one of those."
Commissioners heard from
two applicants for the interim
city manager position and
unanimously voted to hire
Brock. Brock, who currently
resides in Gainesville, has
15 years experience as a city
manager and says his strength
is in financial management.
Scott Dye of Miami was
the other applicant. Although
commissioners agreed that
Dye had a great attitude, they
opted for Brock's experience.
Dyehad not previously served
as a city manager, stating,
"My first opportunity to serve
as city manager would be this
one."
Commissioners also heard
a reading of an ordinance
See Manager Page 18


Bell handed off the gavel
to Vice Chairman Sammy
Yearty.
"I am not here for popular-
ity," Bell began as she told
the 100 plus people gathered
in the courtroom that when
she lay her head on her pil-
low at night she had to know
she was doing what was best
for Levy County.
"I can't consciously vote
for this budget," Bell said,


adding she was particularly
perturbed about the large in-
crease from the legal depart-
ment that calls for a part-time
county attorney, additional
staff and extra space.
Bell's motion to reduce the
millage rate to 7 mills died
quietly on the floor for a lack
of a second.
Bell-then made a motion
to abolish the county legal
department but keep attorney

drug sweep.


Anne Brown on through the
end of her March 2007 con-
tract because a buy-out would
be too expensive and there
are several cases/jobs Brown
is currently working on.
Bell recommended putting
an attorney on retainer and
consulting with several attor-
neys with various expertise to
handle the county's affairs.
That motion also met with
dead silence from the other


commissioners.
"I figured this was what
was going to happen," Bell
said. The chairwoman told
the commissioners and the
constituents in the audience
that she had studied the bud-
get and believed that many
of the projects on tap for the
next fiscal year could still be
done with a better budget.

Bust nets 19 suspects

BYCASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Buyer, beware. Sellers, for that matter, should beware as
well, if they happen to be in the business of buying or selling
illegal drugs. The Chiefland Police Department, in cooperation
with the Levy County Drug Task Force and Ocala/Marion
County's task force, rounded up 19 suspects in a raid last
Friday.
Operation Round Up was the culmination of months of
investigations on area drug dealers. Suspects were arrested
for sale, purchase, or possession of crack cocaine, cannabis or
drug paraphernalia, sale of sich items within 1,000 feet of a
school and child endangerment.
The arrests occurred at a mobile home on the corer of
Fourth Aveque and Second Street.
Police Chief Robert Douglas and Levy County Sheriff
Johnny Smith dropped in on area residents after the drug
busts Monday. An 80-year-old man, Herbert A. Dockery, lives
in a small white house just across the street. Gloria Granger
was with him during the sheriff's and police chief's visit. She
said those involved in the drug trafficking would park all over
Dockery's property, ignoring "No Trespassing" signs. She
said sometimes he had no choice but to turn out his lights and
go into his bedroom.
"If you pass by here and see that the front porch light isn't
on, you need to drop in and made sure he's OK," she told

County Fair moves forward with officer appointments


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County Fair Task
Force took two giant leaps
forward during the Sept. 14
meeting.
The secretary and treasurer
of what will become the Levy
County Fair Association
board of directors were
appointed and a fee structure
was set allowing membership
into the association.
Ruthann -Macheski will
serve as treasurer and Reta
Scott as secretary. Macheski
has years of relevant
experience to add to the
board. She is a founder of
Gainesville's Hoggetowne
Medieval Faire.
Scott works in the Levy
County Extension's family
nutrition program.
Meeting attendees also
learned of a sticking point
between the Williston
Horsemen's Association
(WHA) and the task force.
A final site for the fair
has not been determined,
although the city of Williston
has agreed to use of city
property in principal.
Fair task force members
have been working with WHA
members to use the adjacent
park property; however, those
plans recently hit a snag.
"Some livestockcommittee
members and WMA members
have stated that they do not
wish to participate if there
are components that do not
contribute to education for
kids," stated task force leader


Bob Levesque. "That means
no midway, period."
Levesque asked task force
members if they wanted
to strike the midway and
other non-educational
fair' components such as
entertainment from the fair
lineup. All members present
opted to keep to the plans
thus far, including a midway.
Members also discussed
moving the task force into a
non-profit association capable
of raising funds.
Funding would come
from membership fees and
corporate sponsorships. Fees
suggested during Thursday's
meeting are $50 for families,
$25 for individual adults, $5
for individual children, and
$100 for businesses. Those
present agreed to set up a table
at the Oct. 7 Peanut Festival
to invite county residents
to sign up for association
memberships. Memberships
would include perks such as
discounted tickets.
Corporate sponsorships
would be sought through
presenting proposals to area
businesses:
Williston resident Jerry
Pastang suggested one
way to increase corporate
sponsorships. "It would be
highly beneficial to have
an organization behind us,"
Pastang said. Backing of
organizations such as the
Rotary Club would lend
credibility to the fledgling
association.
County fair associations


CATHY ESBAUGH


are strictly regulated by
Florida statutes and require,
among other things, that an
association be comprised of at
least 25 members who reside
in the county in which the fair
will be held. Fair associations
are governed by the Bureau
of State Farmer's Markets
under the Florida Department
of Agriculture.
Task force members also
heard from Cathy Esbaugh
of the Levy Association of
Retarded Citizens (LARC).
LARC is currently


seeking participation in their
community enhancement
program from area businesses
and organizations. The
program aims to get LARC
members involved in their
community by volunteering
them in local business and
organizational activities.
The next meeting of the
fair task force will occur
on Thursday, Oct. 19 ai
5:30. The fair is tentatively
scheduled for the second or
third weekend in November
of 2007.

They must attain 100 percent
on seven standards and


passing grades on 35 of the
remaining 43 standards.
Middle-schoolers will
be required to complete one
course in career and education
planning, and must complete
their academic and career
plan during the seventh and
eighth grades.
Middle schools will add
at least one high-school level
math course (algebra I) where
appropriate.
Additional promotion
requirements added for
students in sixth through
eighth grades include
completion of courses each
year in language arts, math,
science and social studies.
They will be required to pass
five full-year classes each
year.
Oral reading fluency will
be monitored three times
annually for students in all
grades.
Science mastery will
be monitored at least once a
year.

state standards as outlined in
Sunshine State Requirements.
Copies of these requirements
are available at the schools.

Quilters finish project


that will be raffled off

BY WINELLE HORNE
CORRESPONDENT
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Our day started out slow, but by
lunchtime we had several, from the Lutheran Church, some
from Lake City and some from Crystal River. So, we did have
a busy day.
The quilt that Pat and B.J. finished for the Woman's Club
has been, finished and it will, b raffled off later. Some ,of the
squares were made by members a long time ago, was packed
away. and finally were brought out. Now what do with them?
Quilters always have ideas of how it's finished and will be a
treasure for someone to use.
Jarrod and 10 boys were out Wednesday. and what a
difference they make when they get busy. One-boy planted
tomatoes that had never seen a tomato plant, much less planted
one, but he did a great job. They do so much when they come
out. Thank you, Lancaster.
Joyce has brought in a lot of beautiful fabric and many
projects can be made. We sell it here for the upkeep of our
museum and we will have more later.
Lunch was good with baked chicken, venison stew, mashed
potatoes and gravy, squash casserole, biscuits, apple pie,
chocolate cake and so much more. There were 13 members
and 10 guests present.

ISubdivison chosen for privacy

; Editor's Note: The following letter was sent Ms. Nancy
;,Bell. The authors asked it run in this forum as an open letter.

ii Dear Ms. Bell:
We recently bought a Fox Grove Farms parcel at the inter-
section of SE 123rd and 117th and plan to build a home there
,soon. Incidentally, Levy County last month approved our pe-
,tition to vacate that undeveloped part of 117th beside our lot,
which ends at the Bower properties that front on.Rte. 121. We
.truly appreciate the County's approving our vacate petition.
SHowever, this past weekend we learned of the neighbor-
,hood issue in Fox Grove Farms and Shamrock Acres regard-
,ing the proposed Living Waters Life Center's access via the
northernn end of our Fox Grove Farms' county road, SE 123.
,, We find this access by Living Waters strange and inconsid-
erate of us in Fox Grove Farms, since that acreage proposed
for the Center is wholly inside Shamrock Acres and has more
direct and proper access to Rte. 121, which is far better suited
to handle the Center's traffic. Perhaps directing traffic through
Fox Grove Farms is a cheap way out and just one part of an
ill-conceived plan by the developer.
I Shamrock Acres has the chore to defend its deed restric-
;tions, and we know the County cannot interfere. However, we
vould like our comments to go on record with the Commis-
"-ioners and be. relayed to the developer of the Center if you
have further interaction with him. Perhaps you would give
'him a copy of this letter. Surely a "man of God" does not
';ant to create lasting animosity from the people living near
hiis church. We certainly would not want to join his church if
he thinks he is righteous in turning our quiet neighborhood
into just another roadway into his place of business. It ap-
pears Fox Grove Farms is at the mercy of the Living Waters
'developer.
The horse-friendly area and relative remoteness from the
commercialismm of cities and towns sold us on this Levy
:County jewel of Fox Grove Farms. Heavy traffic going to
any type of "center" is not something we ever guessed would
'be our problem. We specifically chose a parcel at the back
'portion of the subdivision, which we thought would give us
'added privacy. The limestone roads in Fox Grove, as opposed
to paved roads, were a huge selling point for us when we
'selected our future home site. We are horseback riders and
'how worry that the Center's traffic could make riding our pets
'along Fox Grove's roads much more hazardous. There is no
guarantee that drivers from outside of the area going to and
'from the Center would be considerate of horseback riders re-
'garding car speed and driver courtesy as well as the dust we
iiders~dil' pedestrians'would swa~k fr thAf' ti'affid. We
are leaving a pristine 30 acre, remote, rural homestead in Up-'
state New York, so we thought lorig and hard abo6itlivi g'ih a
Florida subdivision smaller parcel of land, many and closer
neighbors, deed restrictions, etc. Now what we pictured we
would be moving to in Levy County appears to be drastically
changing.
We may not be opposed to a traditional country church of-
fering weekly spiritual services being sited in the area with
proper access roads but the Center's scope seems to be much
more than this, which we see as more of a country club and
conference center (tennis court, pool, perhaps continuous in-
gress/egress by a number of non-residents, and who knows,
maybe future plans for day care facilities and other "com-
mercialism"). A Center offering these things to its congrega-
tion or the public does not fit the intent of Shamrock Acres'
residential community. As we stated above, this Center is not
in our subdivision, but we seem to be expected to host and
endure the Center's traffic. It looks like the Center will indeed
"be in" Fox Grove Farms. This is what we oppose.
What we propose is that Living Waters be realistic about
what is a proper, straightforward roadway into its facility from
Rte. 121, not just what is economical for them. Up here in
"congested New York," even a brand new, huge Lowe's store
las just one access from the highway. Under the name of a
"church," the proposed Center looks more like a commercial
enterprise, whose access should not be through a residential
subdivision, let alone a non-participating subdivision. By.us-
ing SE 123rd, it appears Fox Grove Farms will have provided
*the developer traffic access, while Living Waters is spared the
personal expense for a suitable Shamrock Acres roadway onto
Rte. 121 and spared total ire from Shamrock landowners. We
thought we would only be dealing with our own subdivision's
restrictions, not catering to neighboring subdivisions' errant
and inconsiderate developers.
Sincerely,
Bill and Judy Brooks

Caramel-covered Carolyn chaos


am d collector of
recipes, especially
those that promise to
be cholesterol laden, artery-
clogging sweet.
I was delighted last month
when I saw an old fashioned
caramel cake recipe in a
local publication: I immedi-
ately tore it out and vowed
to make it at my first oppor-
tunity.
Two weeks ago, I knew
the time had come and even
told Wilma Jean, our typeset-
ter, that if I had time Sunday
afternoon, I planned to make
the cake and send her a piece
on Monday.
She was as thrilled as
I was and we took a few
minutes to reflect on caramel
cakes we have sampled in
,the past. -

Mrs,.Larry Wamodk'si 1iir
Mrs. Warnock was a
reader of a paper I worked
at the early '90s and every
Christmas she would delight
the newspaper staff with one
of her homebaked confec-
tions.
The caramel cae was my
favorite of her wris. Six
thin layers, each shellacked
with the gooey caramel,
was a bit of heaven in your
mouth.
Armed with my ingredient
list, I headed to the grocery...
a pound of butter, three cups
of sugar, 10 eggs. Oh, yeah,
bring it on, I thought.
With the magazine recipe
at my side, I started the cake
portion of the recipe Sunday
morning.
"That's odd," I said out
loud. "It never says to add
the sugar at all." No indeed,
you went straight from' the
butter to the eggs with no
mention of the sugar.
But since I am an ad-
ept, experienced baker, I
added the sugar as the butter
creamed under the mixer.
"Four cups of flour!"'I
shouted to the butter. That is
going to be one heavy cake.
I poured the golden batter
into three 9-inch pans and

put them in a preheated 325-
degree oven for 45 minutes
per the recipe's directions.
When I checked on them
at the end of the cycle, I put
my finger on top of one of
the layers. No indentation.
No bounce back. Using a
toothpick, I tested for done-
ness and no gooey batter
came back.

sugar in heavy skillet until

Does that mean in the
1/4 cup of butter or does
that mean by itself until it
scorches? I mused.
Well, I am no fan of
scorched sugar so I made an
executive decision to cara-

ing bubbly frosting, I had a
Sugar Daddy on the wooden

traded it for a wire whisk
and for the next five minutes
frantically whipped that
puppy into shape.
The next direction was
once the mixture reached
a heavy boil, remove from
heat and whip until of a
spreading consistency.
That's when the fun began.
I quickly poured the
mixture into the bowl but the
mixer never came on. Look-

I leaned


across the

plugged it in and in a flash,
four cups of hot, boiling
caramel was slung across my

Two minutes passed and I

Caramel covered a four-

as it had started to cool, little

to form.
Raising my eyes I saw

grabbed one of those cool

V Y know where to

lovebugs while in my home
state of Virginia.
My
husband
Wayne,
a Florida
native, not
only sang
the song
about an
adorable
little
cupid-type CASSIE JOURNIGAN
creature,
but also told a tale of the
lovebug's begintaings.

what to think, whether they
were cuter-than-life, larger-
than-life or not a part of real
life at all.
Then we moved to
Florida. That first spring
brought an especially heavy
infestation of the bugs. They
got all over our car hood and
windshield, and worse, every
time we were outside the
things would land on me and
crawl on every inch of bare
flesh. Oh, they were plenty
easy to squash-they must
have been love-drunk from
flying united-but their close
gentle touch was enough
to leave me completely

Since that first spring,
I've seen some seasons with
very little lovebug activity.
Other times their presence is
so pervasive that I find I can
drive nowhere unless armed
with window cleaner and
newspaper to wipe down the
car's windshield.
They are not too bad
this month, yet still I'd
love to see them gone. In
utter frustration, or from a
perverse need to learn all
about them if I can't wish
them away, I turn to the
Internet. I "Google" lovebug.
Snopes.com and University
of Florida links are in the top
10 hit list.
At Snopes I find my
husband's rumor as well
as two or three others. One
looks like it may have been
written after a Gators victory
over the Seminoles: "Back
when I was a student at
Florida State, I was told that
love bugs were accidentally
released from a biological
experiment station at the
University of Florida."
Snopes also displayed
a shortened version my
husband told: "Supposedly,

One-handedly, I took
everything out, sopped up
the wet, stinking mess and
sprayed with a disinfec-

hardening around me, and
on me.
With the leak, floor and

I headed for the shower

off and gently scrubbed the
caramel from my skin.

four bums that looked like

before I spent more money
on frosting.

CHIEF ROBERT DOUGLAS says law enforcement officers have one purpose.
"Our mission is to clean our streets up and to make you, when you lay dowh
your head at night, to feel safe," he said. Five law enforcement officers werb
awarded officer of the year designations Thursday evening for doing just that.
Each year awards are given to officers who have provided "outstanding service
beyond the call of duty." One officer from each local Idw enforcement agency
was selected: Jay Bolton from the Chiefland Police Department, Virgil Sandlih
from Florida Highway Patrol, Jonathan Reed from Lancaster Correctional
Facility, Neil Polimeni from Levy County Correctional Facility, and Bob Cannon
from the sheriff's department. The awards ceremony was presented by the
Chiefland Women's Club and held at Tommy Usher Center.


Yankeetown open for business;


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Yankeetown is running
minus a mayor and two
council members.
When asked if Levy
County commissioners had
stepped in, Fred Moody
said, "As yet we haven't
been approached. We've had
no official contact with the
governor's office." Moody
was referring to an earlier
stage of the controversy,
when the governor declared
a state: of emergency after
resignations of three council
members left the'town unable
to assemble a quorum.
Three town employees
had also resigned during the
earlier ruckus-the town
clerk, assistant to the town
clerk, and acting planning
department head. The town
also was unable to collect
on water service .imnvices
and uncontested ,,creditor
claims' failed tonri-tansfer


pensions, and other benefits
to employees; and saw the
discontinuation of volunteer
fire department services due
to unpaid fuel bills.
The governor had called for
special elections to be held to
restore the town government.
In thatAug. 29 election Dawn
Clary, Douglas Dame and
Larry Feldhusen emerged
victorious as a block aimed at
controlling growth in the area.
They joined mayor Joanne
Johannesson and council
members Dan Bowman and
Glen Spetz.
The governor is presently
studying the situation and has
not yet decided what to do,
according to spokeswoman.
Kristy Campbell.
Brooksville-based Kenneth
Warnstadt, who is serving as
Yankeetown's attorney, said
he was not directly involved
in, the ,town, and, that; the
remaining council members
were conducting'business. He


* Cassie


stated a special meeting would
be held Sept. 26. He said one
topic was "the zoning official
matter," referencing a current
vacancy.
Council member Larry
Feldhuson said the town
was running smoothly singe
the mayor's resignation.
"Everything seems calm. The
town is still open for business.
We're in the catch-up mode,
taking care of housekeeping
left undone when.the mayor
left." He added the remaining
council and community
have pulled together to meet
deadlines. "The town has
conducted itself well. We've
had no unruly behavior."
Feldhuson added that they
had had no official contact
with Governor Jeb Bush's
office since the departure
of the emergency financial
team adding the town has
had no reason to, contact the
governor. .

in a lab at UF by crossing a fly and a mosquito
in an attempt to create an enemy for mosquito
larva. It got loose and now populates the whole
southern US." I must say prefer Wayne's
version. He has the heart of a teller of tall tales
and adds ali sort of fanciful facts to any story
he's telling.
My Cracker husband takes
great joy in the fact that lovebugs
are not "from here." His joy
diminishes just a tad when I point
out they are, however, from the
South. Perversely, I hold out the
information of just how far south-they
actually slowly worked their way northward
from Central America. Their main range so far
are the states bordering the Gulf of Mexico,
although they have lately been found in South
Carolina.
My former boss, Bill Zegel, a chemical
engineer by day and poet-philosopher by night,
says that the arrival of spring rains ends the
pests' May June activity, and the end of the
rainy, season in September brings them back
again. While he's not an entomologist, his
formula does seem to work. I've noticed that
during dry years, the lovebug season never
seems to end. And during years of excessive
tropical rains, the pest hardly appears at all.
It should be of at least some comfort to know
that out of the 200 or so varieties scientists


have so far discovered, we only have two"
in Florida. Both are doomed to very shoft-
life spans. The larger female lives 72
hours and her mate about 92. The females
love fresh, moist clumps of grass debris '-
for laying their eggs; that's why they're so
frequently found along highways.'
Blame it on the road department
^ and their regular mowing
schedule.
The reduced visibility from their
splatters across a car windshield
is only one of the hazards the
little Casanovas bring. When they hit
the car body rather than the glass, the
acid mess can etch insect graffiti into the
paint. Unless you can somehow get the
stuff washed off within a few minutes of'
impact.
But the transplants do bring benefits. In'
the marvelous economy of nature, their -
larvae help turn decaying organic matter'"
into rich soil. They make compost. Just
like earthworms. Unlike earthworms,
however, I don't think they'd make good"
bait. And if we already have earthworms;'
why do we need the ubiquitous lovebug?"

Walk in Belleview on Sept. 11 to show its support for all
the families who lost loved ones and also for the heroes that
gave their lives to help save others.
There was a wonderful turnout for the walk that was
through beautiful downtown Belleview. This experience
helped the Explorers by showing them about how the
families and community cope with a major tragedy and the
emotional involvement of EMS.
If you are between the ages of 14 and 21 and have
completed 8t grade, and are interested in the field of
Emergency Medical Services, you can become a member
of the Explorer Post. For more information please contact
Trish at 221-5161, Royce at 221-5148, or Dana at 577-

Manatee Paddle Patrol


workshops
In preparation for the
upcoming manatee season,
Manatee Springs State Park
will hold an Interpretive
training session for potential
participants in the park's
"paddle patrol".
The park is well known
for its scenic location on the
banks of the Suwannee River.
It is equally well known for
the manatees that frequent the
spring run and adjacent waters
of the Suwannee River. From
December -through -:;April
the park- conducts weekly
manatee paddles starting at
the spring run at Manatee
Springs, paddle on the
Suwannee River and return
via the spring run.
The trip length is usually
about one to one and 1 1/2
hours.
These popular interpretive
programs are usually filled
to capacity. Interpretation is
simply the art of connecting
people with their environment
at an emotional level.
Individuals wishing to
become involved with the
park's paddling program are
invited to attend one of three
scheduled orientation and
interpretive workshops. The

Farmers and ranchers have
until Sept. 29, 2006, to apply
for four 2005 hurricane di-
saster programs, announced
Kevin L. Kelley, State Exec-
utive Director of the USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA)
in Florida.
Sign-up began on May 17
for the four programs, which
provide aid to producers who
suffered losses due to the de-
structive hurricanes of 2005.
"We are doing everything
we can at FSA to help farmers
recover from the devastation
brought by last year's hur-
ricanes," said Kelley. "I'm
encouraging all producers to
contact their local FSA office
as soon as possible -so they
can enroll in these programs
before the deadline, because
there are no late filed provi-
sions for these programs."
The four programs Live-
-r"' 4W"lTMn mriity PrOgram
(LIP), Feed Indemnity Pro-
gram (FIP), Hurricane In-
demnity Program (HIP), and
Tree Indemnity Program
(TIP) -. are funded through
Section 32 of the Act of Aug.
24, 1935. Agriculture Secre-
tary Mike Johannes autho-


rized the use of $250 million
from Section 32 funds in Oc-
tober 2005 for crop disaster,
livestock, tree, and aquacul-
ture assistance.
The Livestock Indemnity
Program provides payments
to eligible livestock owners
and contract growers who in-
curred the death of livestock
due to the hurricanes. The
Feed Indemnity Program
provides payments to eligible
livestock owners and cash
lessees who suffered feed
losses or increased feed costs
due to the hurricanes.
Hurricane Indemnity Pro-
gram provides payments
to eligible producers who
suffered crop losses and re-
ceived either a Federal Crop
Insurance Corporation crop
insurance indemnity or an
FSA Noninsured Crop Di-
saster Assistance Program
'"(NAP) payment. Dtiutohow
eligibility is determined for
HIP, all producers who either
filed a claim with a re-insur-
ance company or received
an indemnity must contact
the county FSA office prior
to September 29. The Tree
Indemnity Program provides


payments to eligible owners
of commercially grown fruit
trees, nut trees, bushes, and
vines that produce an annual
crop and were lost or dam-
aged due to the hurricanes.
To be eligible for this assis-
tance, a producer's loss must
have occurred in one of the
261 counties that received a
primary presidential or sec-
retarial disaster designation
due to 2005 Hurricanes Den-
nis, Katrina, Ophelia, Rita, or
Wilma in the following states:
Alabama, Florida, Louisiana,
Mississippi, North Carolina,
and Texas. Additional infor-
mation is available online at:
http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov.
USDA has also made other
programs available to assist
farmers and ranchers, in-
cluding the Emergency Con-
servation Program, Federal
Crop Insurance and the Non-
insured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program. '"'`'"
Interested farmers may
contact their local USDA
Service Centers for more
information on eligibility
requirements and applica-
tion procedures for these and
other programs.


Animal adoption event slated for Saturday


The Humane Society of
Levy County, Inc. will host
an Adoption Event at 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept.
30 at Curves of Chiefland;
107 E. Rodgers Blvd.
There will be a drawing
for a 23-inch, color TV and
Dish Network system. Ani-
mals that were rescued from
the local shelter are available
for adoption. All pets are cur-
rent on vaccinations and are


spay/neutered.
The goal of the Humane
Society of Levy County, Inc.
is to build a facility-and start
a Low Cost Spay and Neuter
Clinic, which will require
fund-raising to a large de-
gree.
An, anonymous donation
of $15,000 has kicked off the
campaign along with our TV
& Satellite Drawing and the
"Chain of Life" fund-raiser.


There will be links for the
"Chain of Life" available at
the adoption event.
The Humane Society of
Levy County has assisted
Levy County Animal Ser-
vices with the re-homing
of 1,845 animals this year
though adoptions, rescues
and owner reclaims.
The society has no facility
at this time to take in animals,
but works diligently with the


I o
public as to where or'what
they can do with unwanted
animals. The society pro-
motes Spay & Neutering of
family pets, plus micro-chip-
ping to assist in re-homing
should they become lost.
There will be a member-
ship meeting on Oct. 19,
at Bronson Town Hall at 7
p.m. for those members and
anyone wishing to become a
member.

meet at


Fanning

BY BARBARA C.R. Moore
SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL
We had the best attendance
ever, Sept. 12 at Fanning
Springs State Park and had to
use the adjoining two tables as
well as Pavilion No. 1. Most
attending were from other
Central Florida areas dressed
for swimming and we didn't
recognize them at first and
wondered who the energetic
persons were heading for our
reserved pavilion.
One of our valued potential
members left in a huffbecause
there was sand on the benches
from the feet of children who
had arrived earlier with their
moms and were swimming
and a few shells from squirrels
peeling acorns on the tables.
Shame on those beautiful fat
squirrels!
My "flying officer" husband
who flew 65 missions over
the English Channel during
World War II in a "Spitfire"
wouldhave simply cleaned off
the benches and been happy
to be among us civilians and
"carried on."
Our fiscal year came to an
end with a change of officers,
but former officers still stayed
on as directors. It was decided
to only send newsletters to
members or subscribers.
Those to whom we have
turned the promotion of a
library being established in
Fanning Springs (still under
the umbrella of AFA) are
enthusiastic.
Discussion with those we
are working with on a Senior
Center in Old Town continue
very favorably (I'm planning
to turn my electric typewriter
over for their use as the
first material donation. Do
you think tapes will still be
available?)
Our past vice president
has promised to teach seniors
how to use the computers
once we have been able to
obtain some for the Senior
Center. We hope to also have
exercise equipment like Cross
City.
I expect our October
meeting to take place at 74
S.E. 870 St., Old Town, a
local restaurant or a private
home.
Watch your local
newspapers for date, place,
and time. (We were all
having such a beautiful time
and swim at the park that we
failed to cover that issue. If I
have anything to say about it,
we'll meet at Hart Springs!)

Learn about phone


service at flu clinic

Bill Burton, a representative from the Public Service Com-
.mission, Tallahassee, will be present at the AARP Flu Clinic
to provide literature, applications and assistance for signing
up the Life Line & Link Up Program
Life Line & Link Up is a federal telephone program. Ev-
eryone with a land line phone pays $1 a month into a federal
fund. Money from the fund is used to pay the federal portion,
$10.50 a month on the basic charge for phone service.
The telephone company providing service pays $3 a month
for a total of $13.50 for those low income and public assis-
tance programs, i.e. food stamps, SSI and others. A one time
payment of $30 will be paid for installing phone service.
Last year $47,000,000 was collected from Florida resi-
dents but only $17,000,000 was spent on eligible residents
which resulted in 30,000,000 Florida dollars being spent in
other states. Only 17 percent of those eligible in Florida have
signed up for the service. If you think you may be eligible for
the service, please attend.
Rosemary Suangia of Health Watch will present infor-
mation for hearing impaired persons to receive hearing en-
hancement services. This is a state program with only two
requirements: Be a Florida legal resident and have a hearing
or speech condition. This is a free service.

Bears maul Red Devils
Bears maul Red Devils


BY NEAL FISHER,
SPORTS WRITER
One week after losing
the battle, but winning
the war of removing
the cultural setback of a
loss from its memory to
Dunnellon. the Williston
Red Devils took
on another foe
with similar
implications.
This time it was
the Dixie County
Bears and the
Red Devils won
the battle, but
lost the war by a
score of 23-19.
When the two teams
met last year, the Bears'
Rodney Scott shredded
the Red Devils' defense'
for over 100 yards. Even
though the bruising
running back determined
the Red Devils' defense
was the most physical his
team has faced all year and
was limited to 61 yards
on 23 carries, Williston
couldn't quite lock down
the victory.
In losing to Dixie
County for the seventh
consecutive time,
Williston failed to build
on a proficient second
quarter and hold a 10-
point'second half lead
as Scott made up for his
lack of yardage with two
touchdowns.
"They played' a great
Gamee" head coach Jamie
Baker said. "It was
probably the best they'
played all year. We just
thade mental mistakes'
at 'critical times during
the game and the rest is
history. We played hard
throughout the -whole'
gahffi6"- i v e'reri?' a
p(Aitbwt6 LtOQl'n4dt 've
turned'the ball over.
"It was tough to play
on the road and :we have
to learn to avoid ,making
those mistakes when
we are on the road," the
coach said. "It took us
out of our rhythm and put


us in difficult positions. For
example, we get a penalty
on first down after gaining
positive yardage. Now
instead of it being 2nd and 5 or
6, its 1l" and 15 and it makes
it hard to keep possession of
the ball."
His second
touched own
dropped the' Red
S Devils record to 3-
2 as it also marked
their second loss
G in three weeks to
a team that beat
them at least two'
years in a row.
The two-
yard "keep the legs moving,
shoulder-to-shoulder"
rushing touchdown ended a
six play 57-yard drive with
5:36 remaining in the contest.
However, whereas the Red
Devils could not quite make'
the play to put the game out of
reach, the Bears secured the
victory in dramatic fashion.. .
Williston regained
possession of the ball with


less. than two minutes
left. Jiwan James hauled
in a 24-yard pass from
Devin Timmons, giving,
them a first and tei at their
opponents' 33-yard line.
But on the next play, James
tipped Timmons pass and
the Bears' Bud Wessels
picked off the errant throw
with 1:18.left. .
It was also. ,game of
runs as Dixie C6unty broke
out to a 9-0 lead at the end'
of the first quarter,. .b0fo e
Williston responded witlt
19 points in th second. :
The first scored of the
game was oddly enough a
safety. Trying topassing
out of end zone, Timmons
was tackled by.Corey Van
Aemam. Scott then scored.
his firsttouchdown, a three-
yard run that extended the
Bears lead to nine points.
After openinglast-.eason
with a. -4 record, the'Red
Devils began this season

Football rivalry clearly the fiercest


BHS Volleyball stays hot


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
They do not have any
physical advantages. They
do not have any depth to
speak of. Nor do they play
with the flash and pizzazz
usually associated with
playoff teams.
Yet despite the lack of
these noticeable traits of
top teams, the Bronson
Eagles' volleyball team is
primed to claim their second
consecutive district title as
the season begins its home
stretch.
With five games left, the
Eagles record stands at 9-4
overall and 6-1 in class 2A,
district 6 play.
They have accomplished
t h e i r

being in the 6 Ass
7 Jessi
right place at 8 Ama
the right time 12 Gold
and chemistry. 13 Laur
Coached
by Bronson
graduate
Sherrie Schuller, the team has
found its stride and relies on
a core group of players who
have been in the program for
several years.
"We have been very
fortunate to avoid any
injuries," Schuller said. "We
only have eight players, so
an injury could really change
who we can use and how.
But other than that, we really
have a solid foundation to
work with.
"All the girls have been
with me for at least three.
years. So they know what
to do and what works best,"
Schuller said. "For us that is
making sure our fundamentals
are strong, we are always in
the right place to field the
ball and having the right
chemistry you always hear
about on winning teams.
They practice hard, at least
two hours a day and spend
a lot of time together. They
are a family and have learned
to depend on each other. All
these things really show on
the court."
While the Eagles have
become one of the top teams
in the county by constructing
,a philosophy and culture
based on simplicity, their
character of play is much
more modern.
With the team composition
being made.up of five seniors


and three juniors, they have
elected to use a 6-1 formation.
They line up three hitters up
front and a setter in the back
row. Allowing for the team
to rely on its aggressiveness
and a power game. With
their personnel it also allows
for the players to be able to
roam and switch positions.
Another advantage their
experience brings them. The
Eagles have two defensive
players on the court as well.
Perhaps the biggest factor in
Bronson's success continuing
into the 2006 season was how
well they replaced the starters
they lost. They lost one of
the state's best hitters due to
graduation. She had been in


Varsity Roster

ey Mauldin Senior
ela Massa Junior
ca Blankenship Junior
sa West Senior
ca Maldanado Senior
nda Wilkerson Senior
lie Gollihue Senior
en Smith Junior

the program for five years.
They also lost one of the best
hitters in the state when her
family moved to Gainesville.
However, every player on
this year's squad has played
junior varsity volleyball under
Schuller's direction and they
were ready to fill the shoes.
All the players are capable
of playing every position and
everyone's significance in
every aspect of the game is
equally important.
"We try to win the point
on the serve," Schuller
said. "It sets up our hitting
and spiking. That is what
'an aggressive' game p nfi
needs to do to get points and.
win the match. We play an
aggressive, power game that
tries to win points before the
opponent can adjust. We
have average height, but our
jumping ability is real good
and we use it.
"Becauseoftheirexperience
and time in the program they
do a lot of roaming," Schuller
continued. "They understand
how to.play every position and
I want a team that spreads the
spotlight around. When you
hit and spike with our ability
it plays a huge role in being
able to have that flexibility."
The Eagles have five
remaining games, including
the district finale against
Trenton and the season ender
against Williston. The Eagles


suffered their own district,
loss to Trenton on Sept. 7,
and with the two teams being
the best in the district, the)
game will probably be for the,
district regular season title..
Even though the district
tournament is being held,
at Bronson this year, a,
number one seed could still
be important during the
championships. Trenton i
was able to slow down the,
match's tempo during their f
first meeting and it will be i
key again on Oct. 5, as will
the opportunity to enter the;
district tournament with the,
momentum and confidence a
victory over the chief rival on
the road brings. ,
In fact,the,.
other team's,
ability to'
slow the
tempo down,.
according to
Schuller was,1
the primary,
reason for
each, of the,
Eagles'1 i
losses.
T h ej
team lost)
their focus,,
and consistency, due to-
it. With two of the losses
coming during a stretch of.
seven games in eight days,)
which included the Keswick
Tournament, the coach felt,
the team had trouble getting
into a rhythm and focus on:
the match due to the fact that,
they did not have the depth to
avoid fatigue.
Among the other high
profile contests on the I
remaining schedule are return i
matches againstDixie County, j
Chiefland and Williston.:;
Dixie County plays a similar
style tqjroggpnnM. it wit;
be an opportunity to test their,,
skills and readiness for the
post season.
The Eagles defeated,
Chiefland the first time they
met, but lost to Williston.
The match against the Red .
Devils was the final match
during their stretch of seven
games in eight days and the
coach specifically pointed,
it out as an example of the:,
team's biggest weakness.
Williston and Chiefland
are rivalry games and feature
bragging rights within,;
the county, but a victory
against the Red Devils in
the last game of the regular
season would also be a huge ,
momentum booster entering j
post-season play. ,


One of the more enjoyable things
about being a sportswriter is the
time I have to think about what
is going on in my life. With the peace it
affords me, (after I get far enough from the
stadium or gym) it gives me the opportunity
to work out a plan to take care of grown up
stuff, like my finances, who I need to talk to
the next day and what I need to buy the next
time I shop for food.
But every now and then I have one of
those light bulb moments where I think
about the lighter things life has to offer and
how unique they are to the fabric of my life.
One such instance happened last Friday.
Being the new guy in town, I was somewhat
surprised at the vindication with which both
Bronson and St. John's were playing their
football game.
I was surprised at the atmosphere of
the game and the fervor with which the
players maintained it. With Bronson
coming into the game at 0-4 and St. John's
record standing at 3-1, it seemed to me both
teams would play hard, but not with the we
have something to prove to the other team
eagerness they did. Regardless of who won
or lost, I thought the teams would play for
the pride that comes with winning a game,
regardless of and having nothing to do with
who stood on the other side of the line of
scrimmage.
A little 'after halftime I was told that the
two schools had been playing each other
for several years and there was a history of
upsets, often involving homecoming. So, a
rivalry has developed. Being from the state
of Michigan, I know a thing or two about


rivalries. We don't like teams that represent
Chicago or Cleveland. It doesn't really
make much sense since both cities are a lot
like Detroit, but in sports there needs to be a
common enemy among those associated with
a team.
And its not just limited to cities or regions.
There are specific rivalries to each sport.
Major League Baseball is loaded with its
share of rivalries; the Yankees and Red Sox,
the Dodgers and Giants, the A's and Angels
and the Cubs and Cardinals to name a few.
-Of course, basketball's biggest showdowns
start and end with the Celtics and Lakers, but
the Celtics also have rich rivalries with the
76ers, Pistons, Bulls and Knicks. The Lone
Star State boasts three teams, the Spurs, the
Mavericks and Rockets, making for some of
sports' best rivalries in recent years.
But as I listed in mind that night all of the
highly publicized and reported rivalries and
'what they have brought to their respective
sports, the ones in football stood out as
unique, both collectively andindividually.
While it is uncommon in other sports,
many of football's rivalries develop simply
because of circumstances or the drive to win
championships.
Whatever the circumstances for the
football rivalry, there is a certain magic and
aura that surrounds every aspect of the game
and teams. This is true whether it is high
school, college or the NFL and this particular
game made that point perfectly clear. As the
game wore on, the magic and aura of this
particular night, which began with the rivalry,

Gold, featuring Levy's finest, lives up to its name


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
Six years ago, when his
oldest daughter, Frannie,
reached the age of 10, Gerri
Seader had a predicament.
At a young age, his daughter
was showing above- average
talent as a softball player and
the natural skills it takes to
play college softball. With
his other daughter, Annie,
only two years from the same
situation, there was a need
for a local travel team. But
there was no local entity for
them to further develop those
skills.
Seeing a need for a travel
team representing the area,
the former Bronson High
School softball coach along
with his wife, Kaihy, formed
the Levy Lightning.
Although designed to
allow the players to attract
interest from colleges by
further developing their
talents and showcasing their
ability to play the sport while
competing against teams at
both the state and national
levels, the pool of talent
from which to choose players
capable of competing at those
levels was smaller than most
areas.
The long since defunct
Lightning often played the
Gainesville Gold. While
Seader was involved and
coaching the Levy County
travel team, the Gold's coach
was recruiting Annie for his
team.
After considering the
benefits of merging the two
teams, four years ago the
Lightning was absorbed into
the program and the Seaders
became Gold coaches
themselves.
Since their nuptials, it has
been a marriage' made in
heaven'.
'With the infusion of Levy
County's talent, the Gold
has become one of the most
prominent programs at both
the state and national levels
in all five of the age groups
they compete in.
Celebrating its 10th season
in 2006, the organization as
a whole has moved from a
successful program to title
contender to champion.
In the last two years as it has
reached championship status,
the Gold program as a whole
has claimed three state titles,
two runner-up finishes in the
other major state tournament,
a seventh place finish in
the national championship
tournament, 16 tournament
titles, five runner-up finishes
in those tournaments and
almost every team in the
program has qualified for
the American Softball
Association's national
championship tournament.
"I had known of the Gold
for several years and their
reputation," Seader said. "It
is the kind of reputation that
make people and families
want to get involved, for
the development of both
their daughters' softball and
personal development. It is
also the kind of reputation
that I look for when I want to
get involved with something.
They had an accomplished
won-lost record; the quality
of their coaches was excellent
and the level of competition
they played was the best.
Unlike the mainstream sports,
there isn't a lot of recruiting
for college softball on the high
school level. So, the family
priority has to be involvement
with an organization that will
get their daughter noticed.
The Gold had all the qualities
needed to reach that goal."
In fact, the Gold's mission
statement reflects Seader's


reasoning. It is, "to create a
highly competitive athletic
program through the focused
individual development of
each athlete to her highest
potential in a positive and
nurturing environment,

on a foundation of
sportswomanship, teamwork
and integrity, with the goal
of fielding high quality fast-
pitch softball teams designed
to compete at the State and
National level."
When the Gold originally
began play, college was
several years away for the
girls, but as they have come
of age the program has also
blossomed into a vehicle
for getting noticed by the
colleges.
With over 35 players
awarded four-year college or
junior college scholarships
over the last several years
and a total of over 100
tournament titles in their 10
years, it is hard to argue they
have achieved nothing less
than going above and beyond
what is expected of them.
And while the Gold might
be based in Gainesville, their
representation of the entire
north central Florida region
has allowed for the Levy
County connection to make
their mark with the team. It
has been just as important
to the organization's success


perfect fit for the Gold as the
organization also recruits
its coaches. They look for
a reputation of quality as a
winner and as a person as well
as experience. In fact, all of
the coaches with the Gold have
reputations of being winners,
many years of experience and
continue to attend clinics for
coaches. They are very adept
at adapting to the talent around
them and that is another reason
for the organization's ability
to develop talent.
The prime accomplishments
that the Gold has achieved with
Levy County's fingerprints on
it is the 2006 National Softball
Association and United States
Fast Pitch Association's state
titles for the 12 and under age
group.
They also finished seventh
in this year's National Softball
Association's national
championships and were
the Independent Softball
Association's runner up in
their state competition the last
two years.
With a roster of 11 athletes,
the team boasts five players
who are either from Levy
County or began their career
while living in the county.
"This particular team started
playing together in 2004,"
their coach and founder of the
Gold, Paul Silverman said.
"Us along with two other
teams from south Florida are
generally considered the best
in the state. They were very
talented from the beginning,
but like most teams they had
to learn to beat their biggest
rival. We had a lot of second
and third place finishes the
previous two years, but this
year we put it all together.
This is a group of girls who
can play any style, but their
most prominent ability is
power. There were five girls
on the team with at least one
home run hit over the fence.
They also have speed."
In fact, their
accomplishments came
playing mostly 14 and under
teams this year.
Silverman also said most
*teams at this level lose
something when going from
the infield to outfield, but the
Gold has an excellent outfield.
Among the other notable
differences in their play that
make the Gold champions is
strong pitching.
Understandably, these
travel teams are made up of
young women who are being
exposed to the lessons of adult
.life for the first time and have
the issues of maturing to deal
with.
Silverman noticed that as
the girls have grown into
young .women, their way


of thinking was the final
piece of the puzzle to their
championship aspirations.
Their physical capacity has
grown over the three year
period, but they have learned
understanding and an at bat
without a hit can still be a
successful at bat, keeping
their focus when things don't
go as expected and learning
that they need to approach
and play every game the
same way, even if they are
the more talented team,
are settle, but valuable and
significant parts within the
mindset of a championship
outfit.
Or perhaps the final
ingredient to the puzzle was
how the parents handled
coming so close without
winning the title. They
supported the players, but
more importantly, they were
patient and allowed the girls'
coaches to teach them how to
beat the best teams, instead
of interfering. All in all from
player to coach to parent
and family the Gainesville
Gold 12 and under team
became a more polished and
sophisticated team over the
last three years.
"They are undeniably the
best in state," Silverman said.
"They won two state titles
and were the runner-up in
the other major association's
state championships.
"This team will be
playing the 14 and under age
group next year, but after
three years of taking their up
and downs, the girls are just
as capable of doing the same
in this age bracket. They
had outstanding talent from
the beginning, but it doesn't
mean. anything without
dedication, an understanding
of the game, confidence,
hard work and a desire to do
what it takes to win. They
have all those variables.
In fact, they were very
disappointed about finishing
seventh in the national
competition. They thought
they should have won it.
That disappointment is a
real good window into their
competitiveness and why
they are so good."
Silverman started the
Gold in 1996, because his
two daughters also needed
a team that could be used
as a tool in developing their
skills. He coached the then
10 and under team through
the age groups until his
youngest daughter left to go
to college in 2004.
When his youngest
daughter left to attend college
two years ago, he decided


See Gold Page 10


as any county or city that it
regionally represents.
"I think the reason there is
such a high level of talent in
Levy County is because of the
recreational leagues we have
in Bronson," Seader said.
"We get the kids out on the
field in all sports when they
are young," he said. "So, they
get to learn the fundamentals
at an early age and at a time
when they can be taught. We
don't have a large population,
but the proportion of the
number of youth that can play
at such a level to the county's
population is very high. That
means the coaches can spend
more time with each child and
they get to know them better
than they would if there was a
large population."
Seader is a good example
of the type of coach the
organization looks for. Not
only is he the former coach of
Bronson High School, but he
.was also the former president
of the Bronson Youth league
and currently coaches at
East Side High School in
Gainesville.
With his standing of being
a quality coach he was a

* season against the same five
opponents, making for the
opportunity to remedy the
harm the setbacks caused.
And in this particular game,
it looked like Williston was
going to do just that against
the Bears on the strength of an
authoritative second quarter.
Travis Evans' one-yard
plunge brought the Red
Devils within two points.
Then another oddity occurred
when Williston recovered the
ball in the end zone following
a bad snap on an attempted
punt. It was the second safety
of the game and tied the score
at 9-9.
The Red Devils' defense
stoodup andmade a statement,
scoring 10 points in the final
minute before halftime to
give their team the lead. Scott
fumbled and James returned
it 23 yards for a touchdown.
Rodrigo Quezada's 45-yard
field goal three seconds


before the intermission ended
the 19-point turnaround. It
was set-up by Todd Brown's
interception and capped off
a quarter, which saw the
defense curb Dixie County's
offensive control of the line
of scrimmage and propelled
the switch of momentum to
the Red Devils' side.
"The defense played well
enough for us to win," Baker
said. "We expect the defense
to score every week, or at least
put our offense in a situation
where they have a short field,
and they know that. So, they
expect to score.
"Every week the defense
is ready to play and makes
some great plays." Baker
said. "Offensively, I thought
we could have moved the
ball a little bit better, but that
goes back to the penalties and
learning how to overcome
those types of things. We had

do it all over again with
the current group of girls he
coaches. They began play in
the 10 and under age group.
In his words, "After 10 years,
the relationship with the girls
and watching them develop
was in their blood."
After playing baseball
during his high school years,
he decided to become a coach.
As a student of the game who
loved to review and watch
game film as well as study
the intricacies and strategy of
the game, he felt his calling
was as a coach. He gained
his experience as the assistant
softball coach at East Side
High School in Gainesville
for eight years.
Silverman's head coach at
East Side High School was
Bob Heron. He joined the
Gold when it began and has
served in several capacities
duri ng its existence,
including as the championship
team's assistant coach. His
work with the pitching core
has been invaluable and
Silverman praised him for his
ability to develop the team's
pitching.
Among the girls'
improvement over the last
three years that has made
their pitching a formidable
challenge for their opponents
is better changeups,
understanding. how to hit
certain locations, keeping
hitters off balance and putting
spins on the ball.
While the other teams
in the Gold program have
yet to win state titles, one
can rest assured their name
will continue to resonate
throughout the state and
national softball community.
But no matter what, Levy
County will continue to
have a huge role in the
organization's continuing
line of accomplishments.

The Bears closed the
gap to three points with a
Kameron Keen to Markel
Harris touchdown pass from
Williston's 33-yard line with
1:17 left in the third quarter.
The Red Devils then fumbled
on their next possession and
followed it with two. punts
before the Bears scored the
winning touchdown.
Dixie County upped its
record to 5-0. Coming so
close to knocking off an
undefeated opponent will be
another confidence booster
for Williston as three more
Road games follow last week's
tussle in Dixie County.
The Red Devils travel to
Walton High School this

three consecutive district

Eagles sc
BY NEAL FISHER
STAFF WRITER
If Bronson celebrated
homecoming and played
Ocala St. John's every week,
it would be easy to prove they
are a better team
than their 0-4 start
indicated.
Then again
maybe they played
an impressive
game against St.
John's, because
after the first four
games of the
season, they have
turned the corer.
Their 15-6
victory over the Ocala rival
featured a shutout for over 43
minutes. The defense set the
tone from the beginning as
they forced the Saints into a
punt on their first possession
of the game after allowing
only one first down.
The exchange ofpossession
resulted in Bronson gaining
field position advantage,
which they held onto for the
rest of the half.
With the Saints punting
from their 27-yard line, the
Eagles shredded the visitors'
kick coverage as they returned
the ball to the St. John's 42-
yard line.
When Virgil Greenlee
busted loose off of an end
around rushing play two plays
later and galloped 38 yards
down the right hash mark, the
Eagles drew first blood for the
second consecutive week.
However, this time,
Bronson's defense kept the
opposition's offense on the
sideline, allowing their team
to score two more times on

ENeal
grew. When the game ended
the Eagles' happiness was
more than the jubilation
that comes from winning
a game or celebrating their
first victory .ofth s.eason,.
it was also wrapped in the
knowledge they had done
something they couldn't do
the year before against a
team that had been a thorn
in their side. This is true of
any rivalry at any level in
football.
While it isn't unusual for a
team to be a thorn in another
one's side in a different
sport, high school and
college football is unusual in
the fact that the team on the
losing end of the score has
only one opportunity every
year to right the wrong. In
the NFL if the teams are in.
the same division they get
two shots at righting the
wrong. In other words, the
losing team has to live with
the loss for the whole off-
season. The losing team
wonders what happened,
while the winners walk with
an ease and coolness. The
only way for it to end is to
beat the team the next time
they play, but the game will
not be played until the next
year.
In other sports, most rivals
play each other several
times per year, lessening the
urgency of needing a victory
and giving them several
times to right the wrong.
When the outcome of the
meetings between the rivals
is added together the value
of winning the series is the
same as it is in football, but
the one game decides it all
status makes for a theater of
do or die. And isn't that the
American way?
In other sports,


championships are decided
by a series of seven games
and their seasons are four
times as long as football.
So even when there is a
rivalry that features only
two games, it doesn't
have the same magic and
characteristic. After all, it is
only one game in a season
of 84 or 162 games. In fact
most rivalries that feature


)ar at homecoming


short drives and establish a
commanding halftime lead.
"The defense played well,"
Brochetti said. "They ran well
to the ball. We had a good
scheme to stop St. John's.
They like to
run off tackle
and use the
option, but
we were
able to stop
them from
getting to
the outside.
I think we
surprised
them with
our speed. We were faster
than St. John's and it gave our
guys the chance to shut down
what they like to do."
The sequence of plays
was a show of force and lent
more credence to Brochetti's
belief that the young team is
improving with each game.
Unlike earlier games this
year, this time the defense
made several decisive stops
at critical points in the
game to snuff out St. John's
opportunities, while the
offense did the same to keep
their own drives alive. When
the visitors did come up with
a big play, Bronson quickly
steered the ebb and flow of
the game back to their side.
The defense followed
the first score by forcing St.
John's into a three and out
possession. The exchange
of possession resulted in the
Eagles setting up shop at the
Saints' 39-yard line. The
excellent field position was
once again fronted by another
punt return.
This time Michael Freeman


teams in two different
conferences were born out of
their championship history,
not their regular season
meetings.
- Does anybody remember
every game the Yankees and
Red Sox played this year?
Or how about the Tigers and
Twins? With the American
League Central Division
coming down to its final
week before its champion
is crowned and the Twins
rallying from over 10 games
down in the standings, there
should be something that
sticks out. But the fact is
very few people can recollect
the excitement.
In fact what about the
World Series last year? I
remember the White Sox
beat the Astros, but not
because there is anything
that stands out in my mind.
I remember who played,
because the drama of when
will the White Sox finally
end their drought has been
a dramatic plot line for
baseball long before I was
born.
On the other hand I
remember the referees
reversing Pittsburgh's
interception against
Indianapolis in their playoff
game when replays clearly
showed it was a turnover.
I remember the missed
field goal by the Colts only
seconds later. I remember
the Panthers shredding the
Giants in the playoffs and
then the Seahawks doing
the same to Carolina. I
remember the Redskins won
their last six games to get
into the playoffs and how
they did it. I remember
Tampa Bay took the lead in
the final minutes against the
Redskins on a long Chris
Simms pass only to lose
the game as Washington
mounted a typical Joe
Gibbs coached playoff style
grinding drive propelled by
their ground game.
I can remember without
hesitation Pittsburgh and
Seattle played in the Super
Bowl last year and the
referees' reversal of two
apparent touchdowns in the


juked and jived his way for
a 40-yard return. Several
plays later, at the 11:11
mark of the second quarter,
Mike Williams lowered his
shoulders and pounded his
way into the end zone for a
three-yard touchdown run.
With the score now 12-0,
the confidence of the Eagles'
defense had grown. Their
play' became much more
aggressive and relentless
than it has been at any time
this year. They sacked Chris
Decker on the next drive,
just when the Saints' offense
began to show the signs of a
team that entered the contest
with a 3-1 record.
The blindside sack caused
Decker to cough up the ball
and after Bronson recovered
the fumble, they found
themselves this time with
the ball at their own 35-yard
line.
Spearheaded by the Saints'
15-yard penalty for a late
hit and an 11-yard pass
completion from Barber to
Terrence Dukes on 4h and
3, the Eagles drove to the
visitors' 11-yard line. The
drive: ended with Dukes' 28r
yard field goal and upped
their lead to 15-0, which they
took into halftime.
"We were able to get
Freeman and Greenlee some
room to run," Brochetti
said. "I think they were also
surprised by our speed on
offense. Almost of the kids
are starting for the first time
and I think after the first four
games we are starting to click
on offense. The offensive

Continued from page 8
Super Bowl: I have watched
Michigan and Ohio State
play each other 31 times and
I remember at least two plays
from everyegaime trijt.~ts
,significant to the outcome.,
Yet, all I remember about
the Tigers one World Series
appearance in my lifetime
is Kirk Gibson's home run
that wrapped the series up.
Without going through the
archives, I don't have a clue
how they got to that point.
So while football might
be the king of sports in
this country, it is also the
king of rivalries. Other
sports rivalries might be
fun to watch and they have
a history and reason for
their significance, but they
don't have the American
spirit, buildup and hype of
a football rivalry. That one
rivalry game during football
season can make or break a
season. What other sport can
say that? With that kind of
importance on its schedule,
only a football rivalry can
produce the sensation it does
and is second to none when
it comes to a rivalry game.

line played really well and
allowed our offense to do
what we like to do. Like the
whole team, they continue to
get better with every game
and practice and it showed.
We have been doing a lot
of extra with them and their
attitude and work ethic paid
off."
With the lead, the Eagles
shifted their focus to
controlling the clock and
the Saints were in, a position
where they had to make the
big plays as the remaining
time in the game slipped
away. St. John's went to the
pass more often than they had
in the first half and Bronson's
defense rose to the occasion,
forcing Decker into throwing
the ball away on several third
and fourth down plays.
Although they failed to
score in the second half,
they maintained the field
possession advantage they
had built in the first half, as
St. John's crossed the home
team's 40-yard line only twice
in the second half. They also
took a lot of the "wind out
of the visitors' sails" when
Freeman jumped in front of
a Decker pass at the Eagles'
21-yard line with 7:44 left in
the third quarter.


He shielded the ball from
the receiver 'by using his
body to block the offensive
players movement towards it.
Bronson turned the ball over
on the ensuing possession,
but it was clear the Saints'
offense was shaken by the
interception and they did not
mount a threatening drive
until halfway through the
fourth period.
They marched 78 yards to
cut the lead to 15-6 with 4:56
left as the Eagles were finally
losing stream. But when the
Eagles recovered the onside
kick, the Saints' late game
rally died. Bronson ran three
rushing plays taking the
clock below the two-minute
mark, forcing the visitors to
score twice in that span when
they took over possession of
the ball. "I am very proud of
these kids," Brochetti said.
"Win or lose they never quit
and try to execute. They are
a lot of fun to coach, because
of their character. I am very
happy they got a win. They
deserved it."
Bronson begins a two game
swing on the road against
district foe Hilliard next
week. Hilliard's (1-3) lone
victory was against Branford
last week.

Law toughens on fishing violators


Hunters and fishermen who repeatedly
violate Florida's fish and wildlife laws may find
Themselves becoming couch potatoes under a
new law.
The law also increases the penalty for
hunting or fishing with a suspended or revoked
license, making it a criminal offense, increasing
the fine and adding jail time and suspension
of the license. The new legislation provides
consistency among penalties for similar
saltwater and freshwater fishing and hunting.
They are:
Level 1. Noncriminal violations which do
not directly impact natural resources such
as hunting or fishing without a license, deer
hunting without an orange vest and violations
o wildlife management area rules.
First and subsequent convictions result in
$50 fine plus court costs, unless the person was
convicted of having no license. In that case, he
would have to pay the cost of a license, too.
Level 2 Criminal infractions that directly
impact resources, such as exceeding bag limits,
fishing or hunting during closed seasons,
violating artificial reef requirements and
illegally feeding wildlife.
First conviction, a second-degree
misdemeanor, results in a fine of up to $500 fine
and 600 days in jail.
Second conviction-within Level 2 and within
three years-first-degree misdemeanor with
penalties of a mandatory minimum fine of$250
fine and up to a year in jail.
Third conviction-within five years and
Level 2 or higher-first degree misdemeanor
charge with a mandatory 4500 fine, a year in


jail and a mandatory one-year suspension of all
FWC recreational licenses and permits.
Fourth and subsequent convictions-within
10 years of Level 2 or higher-same penalties
as a second and third conviction, but adds a
minimum mandatory fine of $750 and a three-
year suspension of all FWC recreational licenses
and permits.
Level 3 Criminal violations offish and wildlife
laws that directly impact resources. These are
considered more serious violations than in Level
2, such as possession of commercial quantities
of freshwater game fish, taking deer or turkey
during a closed season or with use of a gun and
light at night, possession of three fish in excess of
daily bag limit of trout, snook or redfish, taking
1,000 pounds-plus of illegal finfish or 10-plus
lobsters, stones crabs or blue crabs.
First conviction, a first-degree misdemeanor,
results in a fine of up to $1,000 and up to a year
in jail.
Second conviction within 10 years and
within Level 3 or higher-results in a first-degree
misdemeanor and up to a year in jail with a $750
minimum mandatory fine and mandatory three-
year suspension of all FWC recreational licenses
and permits.
Level 4: The most serious criminal fish and
wildlife violations that directly impact natural
resources, include possession of a counterfeit
license, molestation or theft of freshwater fishing
gear or lobster, stone or blue crab traps, lines or
buoys, or illegal sale of deer, turkey or marine
fish that illegally harvested.
First and subsequent convictions-third-
degree felony-up to a $5,000 fine and five years
in jail.

Commission says no to water meter replacements


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Should the city spend $65,000 to replace broken or old
water meters? This was the subject of heated debate during
Monday's Chiefland city commission meeting.
Water and facilities manager Shane Keene wants to replace
335 radio read water nreters. Each costs approximately $190.
Commissioner Teal Pomeroy opened debate with the comment,
"This is not a new issue. It has been brought up before. Most
of the commissioners have received calls from Shane Keene."
Pomeroy asked Keene what the ratio of water pumped versus
water sold was, adding, "I understand that Chiefland is one of
the better cities for having a close ratio." Close ratios indicate
that most of the water sold is also billed.
Pomeroy asked Keene how many meters were broken.
Shane said, "Of approximately 900 meters, at least 50 percent
have over 1 million gallons read, and they lose accuracy at
that point."
Rollin Hudson also raised the question of how many water
meters were broken. Keene answered, "50."
Pomeroy then stated that the water department had requested
approximately $510,000 in the Aug. 7 city commission
meeting. He added that their budget since has not decreased
but rather increased.
Keene noted that a big chunk of that money was to cover
the cost of tank maintenance, and that come Sept. 30 (the end
of the fiscal year) the money would be gone. When asked by
Pomeroy to clarify,, city attorney Norm Fugate said, "The
money is still in the bank account and the budget can be
amended for the next year."
Pomeroy continued with concerns over the city continuing
to spend money, and whether the meters needed replacement.
"How much money are we losing? I haven't seen any
figures."
When Hudson asked Keene whether discounts would be
given if the city bought the meters in quantity, Keene said
they would save about $8 per meter.
Commissioner Teresa Barron moved to deny the request.
"Citizens are going to have to pay more," she said. "We have
a road that needs to be fixed and we have no idea how much
that will be."


SManager

to eliminate the Sunday
ban on alcohol sales on a
business that will soon fall
within Chiefland city limits
if the pending annexation is
successful. Stony Smith and
Jim Smith are seeking an
exception since their Jiffy
Food Mart is based on 15
years of Sunday liquor sales.
Concerns raised by
commissioners were many:
Commissioner, _Rollin
Hudson prefaced his-motion
to approve the reading. "They
have a right to do business.
They operated it before
Chiefland made the move, and
they're not the only ones."
Mayor Better Walker
agreed before passing her
gavel to second the motion.
Barron was torn: "I'm
a businessperson, and I
understand. However, I
believe the Hudsons knew
there would come a time
when annexation would
occur. I believe a number
of residents are in favor of
keeping Sunday liquor sales
out. That's part of our small-
town charm."
Commissioner Alice
Monyei said she would
vote based on what citizens
thought."I've had quite a few
calls on this...The majority
don't want alcohol sales on.
Sunday. I have to go with the
majority at this point."
Stony Smith said, "This
issue is about property rights.
Take a deep look at it from a
property rights issue."
Attorney Fugate thought
the Burt J. Act could be
used by business owners to
successfully challenge the
city codes. He added that
annexation exceptions often
carry time limits. Jim Smith
said they would work with
the city, and could live with a
time-limited exception. Both
Smith and Fugate mentioned
a 10-year limit. Hudson
motioned that the annexation
ordinance be amended by
inserting the 10-year limit.
Barron seconded the motion
and it passed with Monyei
casting the dissenting vote.
Robert Beauchamp
addressed city commissioners
on three related issues. -The
first was the Davis Monk and
Company contract renewal
to perform the city's audit.
He said that because of the
Enron scandal, accounting
firms are more strictly
scrutinized in performing
audits. "It used to be that
Davis Monk could perform a
lot of the work necessary to
complete the audit." Now the


Continued from front
audited agency must perform
those tasks, or hire another
accounting firm to do the
preliminary work.
Beauchamp proposed
that Davis Monk continue
the audits for the city, while
Beauchamp's firm provide
the background work. These
combined functions would
cost the city approximately
$25,000-$10,000 for the
audit, and about" S-12,500
f`0 t6 MBeaikafhrlpt', 'j6',rvide
help on an as-needed basis.
His company's fee would
be given as a not-to-exceed
figure he told council.
Commissioners voted
unanimously to renew the
Davis Monk contract, with
Teal Pomeroy seconding
Teresa Barron's motion.
Beauchamp also told
commissioners that although
his company (Beauchamp
and Edwards) had assisted the
city with two separate utility
billing software packages,
neither had performed
adequately. One, Jay Hawk
Billing, had begun charging a
user fee of $8,000. City staff
and Beauchamp had been
working with Continental
Utility Software for the
past year. "We can't make
it work," he said. He added
that Jay Hawk had backed
off their user fee request and
agreed to restore the software
to where it was.
Town clerk Mary Ellzey
added that she had received
a quote from Jay Hawk
earlier Monday. The city
would pay $2,700 to get the
program up and running, and
$3,200 for training. Total
costs of restoring Jay Hawk
as the utility software could
cost as much as $14,000.
Commissioners voted
unanimously to send the
quote back to the company
and ask for a money-back
guarantee.
Beauchamp also discussed
a cash management plan.
The city currently has $1.23
million that would receive a
high interest rate if invested
properly. "I encourage you
to request quotes from local
banks to see what the money
could bring from high-yield
money market funds." He
added if properly invested
the general fund, water and
sewer funds could bring in
$42,000 in interest. Pomeroy
made the motion to seek
sealed bids and to have
recommendations ready
for the Oct. 23 commission
meeting. The measure passed
unanimously.


Pomeroy seconded the denial, saying, "The water department
already has $35,000 in the budget to buy meters."
Keene rejoined, "That's for repairing tanks and fire hydrants
and the meters."
Pomeroy noted another major expenditure requested by the
water department in July. That was to remodel the maintenance
office so it would look more professional;
Part of the debate concerned recent Chiefland Citizen
articles. "Mr. Jeff Hardison and Shane Keene co-wrote an


article on the water meters, and also did an article on me
train depot. I disagree with using a newspaper to get projects
done," Pomeroy said.
Citizen reporter Hardison stood up and refuted the idea
that Keene had initiated the water department and train
depot articles, stating the ideas had come from commission
meetings.
The motion to deny was passed 3-2, with mayor Betty
Walker and Alice Monyei casting the two opposing votes.

Identification of resources supporting the proposed activities of economic human and community development.
SThe North Florida Rutal Area of Critical Economic Concern (RACEC) makes up 13 counties of "Counties of Critical Economic Concem, Group III". The newly re-organized
group is working on a regional basis to provide opportunities to identify assets, share resources and implement a coordinated strategic effort to protect and expand the eco-
nomic health of the region. The group is currently working with Enterprise Florida to identify the appropriate industry clusters for the creation of catalyst projects for the region.
This also includes the Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) at the state level of government.
The concept of the North Florida Economic Development group is to select one or two mega sites in the 13 county region to have all the resources come to bear to market
the mega site to a target industry. The Williston Municipal Airport and Industrial Park qualifies as a candidate, The project is regional in scope and both Levy as well as the
surrounding counties will benefit.

*Guy
myself to sleep.
I was reminded of this the other day at a kid's birthday
party. There were these three little boys who stayed herded
up together and spoke with. such goggle-eyed passion that I
purposed to ease closer and get in on the big secret. "I snuck
up behind this guy and put the gun against his head and blew
it clean off," the one was saying, "There was blood spurting
everywhere." They all laughed. Now my eyes were goggled!
I must be listening to some sort of awful confession. Another
kid responded with an equally gruesome tale. I wanted to
run and hide under a bed somewhere! Then it dawned on my
lightning fast mind, these young fellows were just talking
about their exploits on a video game.
You can call me old fashioned, but I say shame. Shame
on us as a society for producing such violent garbage for
our children. Shame on us as parents for not nurturing
and protecting them from it. Do we really need a cheap
babysitter so bad that we would allow their little hearts
to be conditioned to such brutality? Paul exhorted us in
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are
true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are
just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are
lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be
any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Doesn't that principle apply to our kids?
I've heard the tortured arguments about how we have
to prepare our children for the "real" world. I have to stick
with the Bible, it says, Train up a child in the way he should
go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs
22:6. I figure that means our kids should be spending their
days learning how things should be, not how they shouldn't.


Continuedfrom page 7
Bank tellers don't study hundreds of different bogus bills in
an attempt to keep up with what the counterfeiters are doing.
They study our own U.S. currency and strive to learn every
particular detail of the real deal. Then when someone tries
to pass off a fake they immediately know that it is not to be
accepted. It's the same way with our children. They should
be offended by gratuitous violence and all other manner of
evil. Are we teaching them to embrace it?
But anyway, I don't feel bad about sheltering my kids.
Not for one moment. I want them to feel safe under my
protection until I am confident that they have full faith in
God's. Searing a child's conscience does not prepare them
to be a warrior for God. I know the day will come that they
will have to go out into this dangerous and evil world. I
understand they'll eventually face their share of dark seedy
characters, but when that time comes I want them to do just
that; face them. I don't want them to be one of them!

Energy saving tips for your home


With lower temperatures
come higher heating costs.
And with Americans already
spending more than $160 bil-
lion a year to heat, cool and
light their homes, cost-con-
sciousness is more important
than ever.
* Inspect and tnemup. our
residential' heating sysen
regularly. A heating system
that runs well is more effi-
cient and saves money.
Change your furnace fil-
ter regularly. Clean filters will
increase efficiency.
Consider switching to a
propane water heater. Pro-
pane water heaters can save
up to one third as compared
to electricity, and they heat
more than twice as much wa-
ter in an hour as a comparable
electric model.
Turn down your water
heater to 115 degrees Fahr-
enheit. You could save more
than 10 percent on your water
heating bill.
Wrap your water heater
in an insulating blanket.
Increase your water heat-
er's efficiency by draining it
every six months to remove
mineral deposits and sedi-
ment.
Vacuum dust off refriger-
ator coils every three months.
It takes less energy to cool
that way. Check the gaskets
around the door and make

Commissioner Tony Park-
er said having the attorney
in-house was beneficial to
everyone and people would
be surprised to know the case
load she handles.
Parker made a motion to
reduce the legal department's
budget by eliminating the ad-
ditional attorney and staff.


Douglas.
Other neighbors had similar
complaints. Resident. Gale
'Macon said people would
park all over her property. "I
call the police. If they come
into my yard, I run them off.
'I'm used to being around
some rough people, and these
ones are not going to run over
me. I tell them I don't do drug
'dealing, and they're not going
'to park here so they can," she
said.
Residents expressed
gratitude for Friday's clean-
up. "You're not done, yet, are
you?" asked Macon.
Daphina Williams, who
runs Carnegie's Funeral
'Home, said, "It's been quieter
'this weekend. I am thankful
'to Chief Douglas for the job
he's doing."
Sheriff Smith called
'Friday's busts "A good hit for
'the drug task force. They did
a great job. Friday evening
we just decided it was time
'to sweep the streets, to clean
them up. But we're not done
yet. We still have other things
going on right now. We're
'very, very busy."

The motion, like the two be-
fore it, died for lack of a sec-
ond.
At last, Commissioner
Danny Stevens made a mo-
tion to set the millage at 7.9
and after a quick second by
Parker, the motion carried
with only Bell dissenting.
Prior to the vote, Stevens

had told the audience that
this rate reflects a decrease
from the 9 mills the county
had maintained for at least 20
years.
He also referenced sur-
rounding counties ofGilcltrist
and Dixie that set their mill-
age rate at 10. The towns of
Cedar Key, Yankeetown and
Inglis decreased millage this
year, he said, but at smaller
amounts than the county.
Yearty again explained why
the county needed more mon-
ey-to fund a new courtroom,
pay for increases in health and
liability insurance, buy five
acres for a new health depart-
ment, make improvements to
the Cedar Key Airport, make
bridge improvements and put
two new ambulances on the
road.
"We have to address these
things now," Parker said.
"They are necessary for your
safety and the well-being of
this community."
Parker said the easiest
thing would be to tell the peo-
ple what they wanted to hear.


"I can't justify taking away
what this community needs
just to make you happy," he
said.
The commissioner then
said the county had taken
steps to help people by enact-
ing another extra exemption
on taxes four years ago. He
said it is primarily investors
and people moving into the
area who are affected by the
higher costs.
There were low murmur-
ings in the audience of "Not
true. No."
Those were the same voic-
es that for the past hour had
pleaded with the commis-
sioners to have mercy.
Williston resident Dave
Bibby spoke on behalf of
those living on fixed incomes.
He said people shouldn't have
to make a choice between
their medicine and their prop-
erty. He asked for the millage
to be set at 6.5 mills.
Jerry Robinson, also of
Williston, spoke against hav-
ing a county attorney, calling
it an unnecessary expense.,

"Ever how you vote to-
night will be remembered,"
he said.
Parnick Williams of Wil-
liston and Cedar Key asked
the commissioners to run the
county like a business and act
as though they are the CEOs.
He said all budgets can be
trimmed because people al-
ways ask for more than they
need in hopes of getting what
they want.
Jerry Lawrence, a Cedar
Key educator, said his taxes
had increased to $9,000 on
a half-acre and it seemed
like the county was trying to
drive people out. He suggest-
ed slowing down the pace
and having more controlled
growth.
"I'm not going to ask you
to lower my taxes," said
Howard Walker of Gulf
Hammock. "That would be a
waste of my breath."
Kathleen Lowyns said
Levy County is not growing
at the rate of the 25 percent
increase and said the com-
mission should set limits on

its staff. When expense re-
quests are made, department
heads should be able to jus-
tify the need.
"If you don't manage it, it
will manage you," she said.
Likewise Anna Marie Ke-
ator said with property values
increasing, it is the commis-
sion's responsibility to adjust
the millage to the lowest rate
possible.
Another taxpayer remind-
ed the commission that not
everyone comes out of col-
lege and makes $90,000 a
year-some will have to settle
for $7-$10 an hour.
He compared Levy County
to the former Soviet Union
by being too "top heavy" in
government.
Abraham Blitch pointed
out that other revenue sourc-
es, like grants, increased for
the next fiscal year which
should have taken some bur-
den off ad valorem taxes.
Business owners also re-
ceived consideration and will
only be assessed 75 percent
of the first figures proposed.
