Governor

will not

dissolve

Y'town

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Gov. Jeb Bush has declined
the former Yankeetown
mayor's recommendation to
dissolve the town charter and
'turn over local government
functions to Levy County.
Mayor Joanne Johannesson
made her recommendation
in her Sept. 19 letter of
resignation to the governor.
A letter dated Sept. 28
from the governor's office
and signed by general deputy
counsel Nathan Adams IV
was sent to Yankeetown town
attorney Kenneth Warnstadt.
A copy was also sent by
request to the Levy County
Journal.
The letter from the
governor's office reads: "We
do not believe further action
by this office is necessary
at this time," citing that

direction of an emergency
financial management board,

Insurance mandates have
put a damper on a once
healthy volunteer base.
Bonnie Tollefson, Levy
County Library Director, told
the county commissioners
two weeks ago that the vol-
unteer pool of 50 has now
dwindled to one due to a new
policy requiring all volunteers
to submit to a background
check and drug testing.
The policy covers all per-
sons who volunteer, County
Coordinator Fred Moody
said, while Tollefson added
it has hurt her ranks consider-
ably.
Many volunteers object to
what they feel is an indigni-
ty. The cost of the test is the
county's burden, Tollefson
said.
To help alleviate some of
the inconvenience and indig-
nity, Tollefson said Tuesday
that testing will be held in
Levy County and volunteers
will not have to travel to
Gainesville.
Drug testing for library
volunteers will begin at 9
a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 24 at the
Luther Calloway Library in
Chiefland.
Other dates include:
K Oct. 27, 9 a.m. Cedar
Key Library

listen Library
> Oct. 30, 9 a.m., Bron-
son Library
> Oct. 30, 1 p.m., A.F.
Knotts Library, Yankeetown
Someone from Human
Resources will be on hand,
Tollefson said, to answer
questions and assist volun-
teers. Anyone who volun-
teers and does not make one
of the local testing dates will
have to have the work done in
Gainesville, she said.
In other library business

commission meeting, Tollef-

STUDENTS IN THE CLASSES of Mark Roberts at Chiefland Middle School were among those who
read Peter and the Starcatchers during last week's attempt to set a new world record.


Students hope to enter record books


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
It wasn't quite, "On your mark, get set, go," but there was
all the excitement of a sporting event kick-off as students in
Chiefland and Bronson eagerly awaited their countdown.
"Breaking a World Record: Reading Aloud!" was held
Thursday at 11:25 a.m. Event organizers hoped to break a
world record for the most people reading aloud in different
locations simultaneously.
Approximately 300,000 middle school students across
Florida took part in the race, which was sponsored by Gov.
Jeb Bush and was one piece of his "Shoot for the Stars: A


Record Breaking Year for Middle Schools" campaign.
Students watched countdown activities by webcast. The
governor then led students across Florida in reading aloud
an excerpt from "Peter and the Starcatchers," a book by
Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson.
Twelve students were directed in the read-a-thon by
student leaders Cynthia Shelhorse and Brianna Peterson at
SHilltop Alternative School in Bronson. Chiefland Middle
School contributed 372 participants.
Students and event organizers will need to wait about a
month to discover whether their read-a-thon efforts earned
them a world record.


purchase six computer sys-
tems each for the Williston
and Chiefland libraries.
Funded by a grant from the
Gates Foundation, the system
will "make librarians' lives
easier," Tollefson said.
Library patrons may also
be privy to a guest speaker
next year who will speak on
Jewish literature. Tollefson
is applying for a grant that if
awarded will bring the Uni-
versity of Florida's Dr. An-
drew Gordon to Chiefland to
speak on the subject.

The November general election is less than six weeks
away but Floridians still have time to register to vote. To

tering over 21,000 new voters in Florida. As of Aug. 7 there
,were 10,429,566 registered voters.
Voter registration applications are available online at

Levy celebrates National 4-H Week


More than 240,000 4-H
participants in Florida will
share their accomplishments
within their communities
during National 4-H Week,
Oct. 1-7. Counties across the
state will also observe the
week with proclamations,
community service activities
and events.
4-H is one of the largest
youth development programs
in America, involving more
than 7 million young people
ages 5-19, and 538,000 youth
and adult volunteers. This is
their week to celebrate their
program and thank those who
support them.
National 4-H Week also
serves as a great recruiting
tool to attract new members.
Open houses and ice cream
socials are very common
so' that communities can
learn more about the 4-H
youth development program.
Alachua County also plans to
hold an open house for new
and prospective 4-H members
and families.
Many counties including
Palm Beach, Walton,
Gilchrist and Santa Rosa
will meet with their city


government leaders to receive
proclamations recognizing
the week. Proclamations
provide formal recognition
to 4-H and allow youth to
experience the government
process.
"Proclamations are a
great learning tool for youth
during this week," Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said.
"They are able to visit with
their city and county leaders
and learn more about the
democratic process."
Lake, Orange, Osceola,
Seminole, Brevard and
Volusia counties are joining
together and partnering with
Second Harvest Food Bank
to hold a peanut butter drive.
Twenty to 30 youth from
each county are expected to
participate at various Publix
stores on Make a Difference
Day, Oct. 28. Other counties
will promote 4-H in area
schools.
Youth members in Bradford
County are delivering baskets
of goodies to businesses
and individuals who have
supported their program
throughout the year.

YOUR VIEW

i
Veterans are done an injustice
To the editor:
The last time I looked there was a law that said as an
American we had a God given right to have freedom of
speech. Well, I have always believed that whenever an
American chose to speak, they should do three things.
First they should speak the truth, second they should say
something intelligent and third they should say something
to help their fellowman. Well, what I am about to say is
the truth, it is intelligent and I only hope and pray it will
not only help my fellowman but I hope it will help my
comrades.
The greatest disgrace in the country is the way our
veterans and their families are being treated or should I say
not being treated. The first two years President Bush has
been occupying the White House, he has cut the veterans
administration budget twice. The first time was for $1.4
billion the second time was for $1.5 billion and he has
continued to cut our benefits. How about the men and the
armed forces for 20 and 30 years?
He has allowed their health care payments to be increased
three times what they were paying. Is this the way he
rewards these veterans and their families for the sacrifices
they made to keep this country safe, so Little George
could one day be president? Let's get back to our veterans'
hospitals, he has tried to shut most of them down. Of course
what congressmen do not realize if they could just get off
their donkeys (of course there is another word for donkeys)
you would find that the most intelligent, dedicated men and
women are working in the VA hospitals. There is so much
knowledge and experience being lost. If you could just
spend one day in the VA hospital in Gainesville you would
be amazed the things you could learn.
But, now I must be honest and say we also have received
some individuals who think our veterans are not worth the
care they are receiving and they only put a workload on the
honest and hard working people trying to help our veterans.
This is a great disgrace and I only hope and pray I will see
these injustices undone before I leave this world. Our VA
hospitals should be top priority when it comes to spending
the taxpayer's money.

Millage vote will not be forgotten


BY JERRY ROBINSON
GUEST COLUMNIST
along with many others, was at the
final budget hearing of the BOCC. There
were pleas from many residents in the
county to reduce the millage rate from 7.9
percent to 6.5 percent, but these pleas fell on
deaf ears, although, Ms. Bell did recommend a
reduction to 7.0 percent. The final budget was
adopted for in excess of $77 million dollars.
Doing a little research I went back to the
budget year of 2002-2003. That budget was
$45,250,377. What is the difference from four
years ago to this year that would constitute an
increase of $32 million?
At the hearing the hiring of another
attorney, staff member and separate facilities
were discussed. Ms. Bell
made a motion to do away
the legal department at the
end of the contract period of
the current county attorney
and utilize special attorneys
for a given situation on an
hourly contract basis. This ,,
motion failed. Later iKi .
Parker made a ,notieo net4ohire another "':''
attorney and staff member. This motion also
failed from lack of a second as did Ms. Bell's.
No other commissioner would second-either
of these motions. So it appears that not only
are we going to have two attorneys, but an
additional staff member along with separate
facilities but also expense from outside
attorneys that has more expertise in areas that
the present county attorney does not have. The
projected budget cost was $160,000 however
rest assured that this number will, in all
probability, double if not more.
There has been something that has not been
noted very much while the final budget was
in the process of being finalized and that is
health insurance for the county employees.
It seems that AvMed and Blue Cross bid on
the county's health insurance with very little
differences in the coverage. The difference
between the two was approximately $800,000
with Blue being the more expensive. Guess
which one the BOCC approved-Blue of
course. Not only did the BOCC approve the
more expensive amount but agreed to provide
approximately $60-$100 per employee to
offset the increase for the family plan. I am
not against the betterment of benefits for
employees but with the BOCC accepting the
higher of the two, it seems that the lower of
the two would do more to offset the difference
even giving the employees an additional $60-
$100 to offset the family plan. I do not know
how many of the approximate 350 county
employees have the family plan but taking
50 percent of the employees, well you do


the math. My question is why accept a
plan that cost $800,000 more? Could the
millage rate have been lowered had they
accepted the lower bid?
The sheriff requested approval to hire
four additional deputies for the county
correctional facility so that more prisoners
could be housed. The numbers below are
approximate but when the sheriff and I
met to discuss this matter he stated that
the numbers could have been a reality, if
not more so. The Sumter County Sheriff
was willing to sign a one year contract
so that the correctional facility would
house prisoners at the maximum. Other
sheriffs had contacted our sheriff about
housing prisoners as well. The BOCC
turned the sheriff down and



wanting to increase the pay
of the deputies so that after
certificaftioband sotile'Op P"
w they vt^wbuo^ld n6't leave; lis''
depi~riit f. Mr. Yearty went fo to say the
reason the deputies are here was their love
for the county. Buit, in my opinion, dollars,
especially with deputies and firemen, speak
the loudest.
After calculating the difference of the
cost of housing the prisoners, adding the
daily stiffen [sic] given for housing the
prisoners and then deducting,the amount
of the four additional officers, this would
leave in excess of $1.1 million NET. Why
would the BOCC walk away from a net
of $1.1 million and not lower the village
rate?
There was also talk about having to put
in a new communications system for the
sheriff department. Mr. Stevens quoted $1
million but was corrected by Mr. Yearty
with the correct price of $2.3 million. It
is difficult to believe that this is going to
be the cost for new towers, and possibly
land for the towers, in house hardware and
hardware that will have to be replaced in
the field. Look for this number to double
or possibly quadruple before all is said
and done. But wait there is more. A few
years ago a new communication system
could have been put in for $1.3 million
along with additional outside monetary
assistance. But, the BOCC at that time said
they didn't have the money to do that. But
now, with a $77 million plus budget, they
can. Funny how that happens, huh?
Mr. Yearty stressed that additional

Miss Honey says ...


S unday, Oct. 1, 2006.
Hi, ya'll. I have
had a very busy
weekend, baking sweets for
my fiends and customers.
I still missed a few, so after
tomorrow I guess I'll start
again.
I couldn't find my friend
Mozie, so I sold her cake to
someone else, I will bake
her another one tomorrow
or Tuesday and go searching
for her again. I believe she
told me she was staying with
Johnnie Mae at night the last
time I saw her. Nuff said,
until later!
Monday, 5:30 a.m. Good
morning! Coffee is made.

sleeping

dogs).

the baby's
bed, Sweet
Pea is on
the back
of my
chair and MISS HONEY
Misty is ,
beside me and Sugar Bugger
is eating my toes, uh huh,
is too. At least he is trying
and his little teeth can hurt,
but I love him so'much and
they return that love every
day! Uh huh, do too! Hush,
Donald, they do too!
Misty and Sweet Pea


need a hair trim, so I guess
I'll take them to the doggie
salon. Shhh, they don't know
they are dogs!
I have a million and one
things to do, but who says
I must do them? No one.
These little ones can't talk
and couldn't care less, so I'm
safe for now.
It's now 8 a.m. and like a
bad penny "I come back!"
You though you were rid of
a bad penny or Miss Honey!
We always return, but would
you really want to get rid of
me? I didn't think so!!
Sunday morning I started
out the door and Sweet Pea
and Misty ran out, there

Fire service continues for Yankeetown


Correction: Yankeetown has never
gone without fire services, as was erroneously
reported in ast week's Levy County Journal.
"I have responded to 44 calls since July
1, and 105 for the year overall. Several
newspapers have made the same error, and
residents 'have been calling to find out if we
have fire department services," fire chief Paul
Shearer stated.
The fire. department was threatened with
closure, according to an executive order from
Gov. Jeb Bush's office last July 12.


In declaring a state of emergency, the
governor referred to several factors. Many of
them were financial, according to executive
order 10-163, including unpaid fuel bills.
"The volunteer Town Fire Department will
shortly have' no ability to operate because
its fuel account is unpaid and subject to
cancellation," the executive order stated. The
bills have since been paid and the account is
no longer subject to cancellation."
The Journal deeply regrets the error and
any confusion it may have caused.

Reflecting on the miracle of life and labor of love


Y ou sure it's not
that Braxton Hicks
fellow knocking
again?" I moaned. Naturally
I was as excited as any guy
about the birth of his first
child, but hey, we'd already
had one false alarm and I'd
just gotten to sleep here.
"No, I think this is really
it, honey," Angie replied.
I swung my feet to the
floor, rubbing my eyes
with both fists. By the time
they adjusted, my wife was
waddling off to the car like
she could do the whole
thing without me. I wanted
to get mad, but she was
just too cute with that big
watermelon belly.
We didn't get checked
into a room at the hospital
until late. Even then I could
scarcely get a wink of sleep
with all the poking they were
doing on Angie. It was really
annoying. I was trying to be
supportive and all but it was
clearly unfair how she got
the soft bed while I got stuck
in the stiff old arm chair.
Angie just looked at me
crazy when I suggested we

take turns.
The baby was obviously
not going to be cooperative
either. Little Kailey, as we
had dubbed her, was in
no hurry to leave the nest.
The whole next day we
played hurry up and wait.
Angie was dilating slower
than a bowlegged turtle on
Xanax, and I was miserable.
Every time I would just
about nod off that dumb
machine would start beeping
indicating she was having
another contraction. I wanted
to get mad, but Angie just
looked so cute lying there in
pain.
By late evening the whole
thing had begun to resemble
some weird sort of hostage
negotiation. This little Kailey


girl had
apparently
barricaded
herself in
and seemed
willing to
wait us out.
I called to
her, tried to
reason, but
she didn't


seem to care how sleepy I
was.
In desperation the nurses
set up a perimeter and
the doc snuck in to break
Angie's water. This covert
operation was pulled off
with such surgical precision
I began to wonder why these
doctors say they're just
practicing medicine.

LEVY COUNTY HISTORY
62 Years Ago
Minute Book "Q" 1943-1950 -p. 131
At a regular meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners in and for Levy County at the Court House
in Bronson, in the Commissioners' Room on this the 2nd
day of October, A. D. 1945, the following members were
present: J. E. Hogan, Chairman, W. S. Yearty, Randolph
Hodges, M. E. Hiers, J. G. Newsom.
After reading the minutes of the last regular and special
meetings Commissioners W. S. Yearty, J. G. Newsom and
J. E. Hogan requested that the following explanation be
placed in the minutes:
At the last regular meeting of the Board, the question of
establishing an office for furnishing information to the
returning war veterans was brought up. Under the law, the
County Commissioners could levy as much as one half
mill for the purpose of raising money to pay the salary of
someone to give to the veterans the information they might
need. At the time, this matter was discussed by the Board,
the Budget had already been published and we did not feel
that the tax payers should be burdened with an extra one
half mill levy that they did not know anything about.
Under the law, (Chapter 23017) laws of 1945, the Board
was and is authorized to use any other funds that are
available and inappropriate. In view of the work being
done by the local draft board and the Red Cross in making
this information available to veterans, we felt that the
matter of establishing such an office premature and feel
that when the next budget is made up and advertised, there
will be an item included therein that will take care of this
matter. For these reasons, we voted not to tax the tax
payers an additional one half mill without their knowledge.

Red Devils ignite in



second quarter


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5,2006


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
For the third consecutive
week the Williston Red Dev-
ils exploded with a 21 point
second quarter barrage. This
time though, they were
able to ride the outburst
and hold off a late game
rally to score a 35-34
victory over the Walton
Braves. The difference
between the result of this
game and last week's out-
come was the Red Devils
made enough plays in the
waning minutes to hold off
their opponent's charge. In
beating the Braves for the
second consecutive year, Wil-
liston upped their record to 4-
2 for the season and head into
the meat of their season, three
consecutive district contests,
on a winning note and with
momentum.
"They jumped out to a
quick lead and I don't know
why we seemed to get off
to a slow start," head coach
Jamie Baker said. "We have
a very good defense and we
started moving the ball well.
But we still had several three
and outs, so we moved it
well enough to win and do
the things we had to, but
we didn't move it as well as
we would have liked to and
thought we could have.
"All in all we scored four
touchdowns on offense so.
we did pretty well. But we
would not have. Won with-
out the defense's play. They
were a big part of us getting
back into the game in the
second quarter, because they
were directly responsible for
one score and had a part in
the other two."
Not only, for the third con-
secutive week, did this game
include a second quarter
eruption, which positioned
the Red Devils for a victory
after a slow start, it could
also boast of a highlight reel


of big plays on both offense
and defense. In fact, oddly
enough, like last week, the
unusual introduction of two
fumble recoveries in the end
zone was a huge part of this


* Walton cut the deficit to less

ing its lead to more than a

contest's, disposition.
The Red Devils put them-
selves in the position to win
with three consecutive scores
in the second quarter. It was
keyed by Corey Days' inter-
ception return for a touch-
down. The other touchdowns
came on short rushing.plays
following fairly long drives.
With Williston finding the
end zone three times in the
period, the Red Devils held a
21-13 lead at the half.
"If the defense hadn't
scored we would not have
won, Baker "said. "They
played as we expected and
did what we needed them to
do. When the defense scored,
the offense began to it gain
some control of the game."
After the second quarter
run put the Red Devils ahead,
the teams exchanged touch-
downs on two occasions
in the second half before
the Braves' Terrell Bramlet
found Alex Smith in the end
zone for a 38-yard touch-
down strike with 5:10 left. It
brought the Braves to within
one point at 35-34.
Following the, touchdown,
which cut the deficit to one
point, Williston was forced
to punt on their ensuing pos-
session. However, the Red
Devils intercepted Bramlet
and then earned a first down.
With the first down, the Red
Devils ran out the clock.
On the exchange of scores,


on a one-yard touchdown run
by Bramlet and Smith haul-
ing in the'first of his three
touchdowns on a 64-yard
touchdown pass.
Williston found the end
zone during this period when
Timmons and Jiwan James
connected one more time in
the end zone after the defense
recovered a fumble as well as
Timmons scamper around the
right tackle for a three-yard
run.
Heading into the stretch
drive of their schedule, which
includes three consecutive
district games starting this
week, the door for a district
title was opened a little bit
more with North Marion's
loss to Dunnellon.
The game completed the
part of Williston's schedule,
which prepared the. team for
district play. Baker feels the
team is ready, seeing what
he describes as the gambit of
offenses and styles, but will
remind his team that it needs
to play every contest with
the same intensity and as if
it was their toughest game of
the season. ,
"The defense didn't' shiut
the down, but they came up
with several big plays and did
what they had to finish off the
win. Now it is time to really
buckle down and make sure
we are ready to play the dis-
trict games," Baker said.

Is Terrell Owens worth his hype?


o, let me see if I' got
this straight. Last
Tuesday reports
broke that Terrell Owens was
being rushed to the hospital.
The next morning I turned on
my radio in search of more
details. I listen to Mike and
Mike in the morning and to
my surprise there was no
discussion of the breaking
news that seemed so urgent
and surprising the night
before.
Finally on ESPN's 20-
minute Spprtscenter update it
was reported Owens simply
had an adverse reaction
to the combination of the
painkillers he had
been taking due to
his injured hand and
the supplements
most athletes take.
So, I went to my
first meeting that
day thinking it was
for once, simply
a case of because
Owens is Owens it
was the epicenter
of the sports world.
It wasn't anything
unusual and that
would be the end of it. After
I left my first meeting I
turned on the Colin Cowherd
show and more reports
broke that Owens had
some responsibility for the
outcome of his actions.
To make matters worse,
for some inexplicable reason
the media was asking and
looking for information
about an attention starved
athlete's possible venture, :-'r
into the realm of why can't
this guy get it. Then the
circus continued when the
media's attempt to do its job
became part of the story.
Gee whiz, who would
have thought the story
within minutes would have
grown legs, became the
only story in sports that
mattered and even find its
ways into the headlines of
hard news? In fact anybody
who is anybody in the world
of sports journalism was
asked to come on any show
that is any show to express
their feelings and what they
thought really happened.
Then finally at about
3:30 that afternoon,
Owens himself held
a press conference,
explaining reports of an
attempted suicide was a
misunderstanding. He was
in a lot of pain and took
more pills than he should
have. They mixed with the
workout supplements he
takes and he became groggy.
I did not see the press
conference, but from what I
heard on, the radio and how
those who saw it explained
it, Owens actually seemed to
be a little embarrassed and
sheepish by the events of the
last 16 hours. What? Owens
showed humility and traits of
modesty.
But I digress back to
the circus that comes with
Owens. As the minutes and
hours wore on following the
100 and some odd chapter
of what has become the
odyssey known as "the world
according to Terrell Owens,"
it was same old, same old.
When news involves
Terrell Owens, it is not the
news and the ramifications
that we focus on. When it
comes to Terrell Owens, the
focus is always on the fact
that our astonishment at what
he did or said stuns us so
easily. Just when we thought
it was safe to find another.
athlete to put the spotlight


on, the fact that this would
only happen to the embattled
wide receiver takes another
one of its kind twists. The
ease with which it shocks us,
because we are waiting to
see what could possibly top
the exceptional storyline of
his last adventure, becomes
tabloid like fodder for
everyone, not legitimate
news, whether it be sports or
hard news.
When this opinion piece is
published, it will have been
10 days since the incident
was first reported. But rest
assured, whether vxe buy
the player's explanation or


not or we feel sympathetic
to him or not, it will not be
forgotten and it will remain
a part of the Owens' saga.
When the Cowboys play the
Eagles this Sunday, it will
be but the first in what will
be a long line of the incident
being brought up again and
again. It is no secret among
sports fans that Santa Claus
was once booed at Veterans'
Stadium. So expect the
incident to fuel an open
invitation for boos, personal
critiques of Owens' family
and the fans' opinions of
the franchise's once favorite
malcontent.
Of course, if we regular
folks always formed our
opinions and the news
reported its stories through
the lens of Philly fans, our
mindsets would always
be exaggerated, but when
Owens has another one of his
denunciations, complaints,
dramas or dissertations of
what has gone wrong in the
tale of the "world according
to Terrell Owens," it will be
hard to look at this recently
created chapter in the story
of his life as a separate
issue having nothing to do
with whatever the present
controversy may be.
It has been well
documented that Bill Parcels
is a no nonsense kind of
guy. He comes from a
coaching tree that could be
described as old school. A
strong running game coupled
with a pin your ears back,
intimidate the offense and
make the opposition pay
for every yard they gain
defense is how you win
championships and stay at
the top of the heap. Add in
a we will not put ourselves
in situations where we beat
ourselves and the result is a
hall of fame coach who has
led three teams to the Super
Bowl, winning two of then.
While Parcels
understandably played
stupid, it is hard to believe
he didn't know everything
that was going on to the
last detail. Jerry Jones
shelled out a sum of
money that makes the most
accomplished of athletes
like Jeff Gordon, Tiger
Woods and Michael Jordon's
salaries look like chump
change. With that kind
of money being thrown
around, the penchant our


society has for making
sure everyone can remain
in communication with
each other with the touch
of a button and the wide
receiver's history, the
Cowboys franchise would
be below bush league if
they didn't have their eye on
Owens comings and goings
before the incident, let alone
after it.
And does anybody
think after Owens exits in
both San Francisco and
Philadelphia that Parcels
isn't steaming inside when
considering by the time this
article is published he will
have dealt with three
more chapters in the
ever-expanding saga of
"the world according
to Terrell Owens" ?
The Cowboys-Terrell
Owens relationship
might be quiet for the
near future, but sooner
or later something will
happen that displeases
one of the parties and
it will be the same old,
same old.
I have heard many
opinions on the issue of
who needs whom more. I
find it hard to believe that
a coach who has won three
conference titles, two Super
Bowls. and is a future hall
of famer or a franchise that
has won five championships,
played in the "Ice Bowl" and
even during a down period is
among the top five franchises
in merchandising revenue,
needs a wide receiver
who has the rap sheet of
destroying two teams and
many feel it is only a matter
of time before it is three.
Yes, Owens did have a
role in the Eagles reaching
the Super Bowl two years
ago, but at what cost. The
Eagles finished 6-10 last
year and their main operation
became finding a way
to get rid of Owens, not
defending their conference
championship.
Owens is perhaps the most
physically gifted athlete of
this generation and he does
play hard. Unfortunately the
circus his view of the world
has created in his life and
his place in it reminds me
of the saying you reap what
you sow, both for the man
himself and those involved
with him.
The three teams Owens
has played for might have
needed him to win, but when
the lights are turned off and
everyone rides off into the
sunset, do we think it will
be Parcels, Jones, Donavon
McNabb, Andy Reid, Jeff
Garcia, Steve Mariucci,
anyone he has problems with
or Owens himself, who will
appear in the news for doing
something illegal or causing
some kind of commotion
above and beyond the
normal?
Colin Cowherd once said
we make friends with those
who have similar views.
With Owens being such an
aberration in that department
and Dallas being a franchise
built on conservatism and
tradition is it any wonder the
franchise has been overrun
with the saga that is Terrell
Owens in only two months?
And when will we learn with
Owens it is always the same
old same old?

SIndians bested by Ocala Trinity


WILLISTON RED DEVILS

Excited about


remainder of season
BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
As the 2006 football season heads down its home stretch,
the Red Devils are primed to make a name for themselves and
eradicate the sting of last season's poor start.
"We are excited about the rest of the season, head coach
Jamie Baker said. "We have had some good wins this year.
They are stepping-stones and have helped our confidence.
We aren't doing anything new at this point, but we feel we
match up with anybody. We get more and more comfortable
with what we do every week."
Of course the ultimate goal for every high school team is to
capture their district championship. After earning a playoff
berth by virtue of claiming the runner upspot last season, the
Red Devils came into this season with the hunger to take the
next step that comes with the taste of a playoff experience.
Winning the first two games of the season by a combined
score of 80-7, the Red Devils
started the season primed to prove
they were not going to let another
slow start force them to dig out
of a hole. And they have built on
that start. Compiling a 4-2 overall
record as the Red Devils approach |
the eve of three consecutive district
ames.
After last year's .loss to
Runnellon, they needed help to
finish second inthe district. This
year they'd yj ae tns'9napo witka~4fJ14 yj.try,o ver the
Tigers and took another step in developing a championship
team by learning how to beat a title contender. Passing the first
of its four hurdles in their quest for the district championship,
the Red Devils sent a statement to the rest of the district and
made a match up between two undefeated teams in district
play between themselves and North Marion on Oct. 27 a
possibility. However, those aspirations were further boosted
last week when Dunnellon defeated the defending district
champions, leaving the Red Devils as the only undefeated
eamn in district play. A win in two weeks against Santa Fe
would give them clear command of the district race.
"The luxury of being the only undefeated team in the district
puts a new light on the playoffs," Baker said. "It is nice to
be in that position, but we still have to get ready for the next
two games (against Santa Fe and North Port) as if they were
the toughest teams we will play this season or as if they were
the Steelers. We have to play with the same intensity and take
them as seriously as we did Ocala Trinity or Dixie County or
any of the teams we have beaten."
"I think the kids understand that and they play tough and
that is what we need to win the district. We learned a lot
playing the first six games this season, but now it is time to
buckle down and get down to business. The kids are more
experienced than a year ago, but they still have to be ready to
play and be prepared foro whatever we see in district play."
Even with the Red Devils' 4-1 finish during last year's
regular season and a second round appearance in the playoffs,
tpe coaching staff still saw the need to consider what they
could do to avoid a poor start and further strengthen the team's
performance. With that in mind three major events happened
during the off-season.
The offense was changed from a basic I to the spread
option they now use. It utilizes their speeds and ability to
gain angles better as well as uses the Red Devils physical
stature to create mismatches on the offensive line. Most of
the seniors who now start on defense were switched to that
side of the ball from the offense and Baker's father, Alan, was
brought onboard as an assistant. Alan coached at Osceola and
St. Cloud high schools for a combined for over 25 years. He
recently retired, but when the Red Devils asked him to come
back to the sidelines he couldn't say no. The coach was a
natural fit with the program, because he brings an intensity

Considering Ocala Trinity
Catholic has beaten their
opponents by an average of
50.6 points and that figure
becomes 57.2 when
throwing out an 18-
point victory over C
Williston, it would T
have required a perfect
game and then some for
Chiefland to hold the
visitors close enough to
make the final score of
their contest a close score.
Instead, the game followed
the script most had envisioned
as the Celtics rolled to a 65-0
victory over the Indians.
The Indians played hard and
kept their focus throughout
the game, but the defending
class 2B champions and
undefeated Celtics simply
outmatched, outmanned and
overwhelmed Chiefland in
every aspect of the game.
The Celtics struck .quickly
and with certainty in the
second quarter. In one fell
swoop of 15 minutes, they
took command of the game
and left no doubt that they not
only were the better team, but
one of the best in the state.
The deluge of 41 points in
the second quarter sealed the
Indians' fate as in the blink of
an eye they were looking at a
44-0 deficit
"We just basically ran out
of man power," Defensive
Coordinator Mark Lundy
said. "They can substitute
freely and we can't. We did
a good job of holding them
to only three points in the
first quarter. I don't think
they have been held to three
points very often in a quarter.

SRWMD will

meet Tuesday

On Tuesday, Oct. 10 the
Suwannee River Water
Management District's
Governing Board will meet at
9 a.m. at district headquarters,
Hwy. 49 and 90 East, Live
Oak.
The meeting is to consider
District business and conduct
public hearings on regulatory
and land acquisition matters.
A workshop will follow the
board meeting.
All meetings, workshops
and hearings are open to the
public.


There isn't much to say after
the loss, but we did find some
positives and we are very
proud the guys for hanging in
there."
The only part of the game


that did not live up to its
expected plot was the first
period. The Indians held the
Celtics to a lone field goal.
It was the result of a long
ball control time-consuming
drive on their first possession
of the game, but it forecasted
the future of the game. It
gave the all important field
possession advantage to
Trinity. The drive swung the
advantage to the side of the
visitors and for the most part,
the game was played on the
Indians' half of the field as
several of the visitor's scores
came on drives of less than
50 yards and the Indians are
still struggling with fumbles.


While Chiefland's struggle
was further complicated by
having to move the ball long
distances just to force Trinity
to take over possession of the
ball inside their own 35 yard
line.


The second quarter scoring
and any opportunity for the
Indians to climb back into the
game came to an end when
the home team was forced to
punt from its own end zone
late in the period. Antonio
Allen caught the ball at the
home team's 25-yard line and
returned it to the. end zone.
Trinity's John Brantley
,zipped an eight-yard
touchdown pass to Johnny
Lawroski in the third quarter.
Allen followed the touchdown
pass with a five-yard run late
in the period and then closed
out the scoring with a three-
yard jaunt in the fourth.
"The defense is definitely


the stronger part of our
team and they played well,
considering the caliber of
a team we played." Lundy
said. "The last few scores
were simply a case of us
being worn down,
because we don't
have the manpower
or quality to match
up with Trinity. They
are definitely a very
good team with the
ability to explode and
they proved it. One positive
thing we do take from the
game is we have a group of
guys who will stick with the
program and finish out the
season. We also did see some
running ability by Zach Tyson
and good pass coverage from
Travis Donald. They are
difficult team to begin with
and fumbling as many times
as we have certainly is not
going to give us chance to
win."
Chiefland steps out of
district play next week against
Crescent City. The game will
cap off homecoming week
as the visitors come to town
with a 2-3 record.

THIS WEEK IN THE NEXTEL CUP:


Talladega could be defining moment of the season


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
Talladega
Distance 2.66 miles tri-
oval
Banking 33 degrees
Last year's fall winner
(UAW 500): Mark Martin
Last year's spring winner:
Jeff Gordon
Known as the world's
fastest superspeedway and
for producing "the big one"
due to restrictor plates being
required.
The state of the Chase:
In each of the previous
two cup chases, after the first
three races 30-50 percent of
the chase teams saw their
championship opportunity
effectively come to an end.
This year's teams on the
bubble heading into the fourth
race of the chase at Talladega
are Kasey Kahne, Kyle Busch
and Jimmie Johnson. Kahne
and Busch earned their spots
in the playoff by claiming
several top ten finishes in
the final few races before
the chase. In fact, their rise
knocked defending cup
champion Tony Stewart out
of the chase.
However, the first three
races have brought trouble
and problems for both teams,
some of which were not of
their doing. Although they
will not be mathematically
eliminated without a top five
finish, their season as far
as title possibilities will be
over. Johnson limped into
the chase, falling from the top.
spot at the season's midway
point to the bottom half of
the top ten.. If any team can
put their past failures behind
them when their backed into
a do or die situation, it is the
Lowe's unit.
While Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s
and Jeff Gordon's crew are
not facing elimination from
title contention at Talladega,
with only five races left after
this week, a bad showing,
which drops them more than
150 points behind the leader,
could put them in a do or
die situation next week at
Concord.
What does Talladega
means to the chase?
With their string of
successes over the last five.
years at the superspeedways,
Jeff Gordon and Dale
Earnhardt Jr. come into the
race as the obvious favorites
and for them it couldn't be at
a better time.
However, Richard
Childress Racing has made a
spectacular charge back to the


AND THEY'RE OFF!


front of the pack this year and
seemed prime to reclaim their
spot as the best when it comes
to restrictor plate racing.
How does this trip to
Talladega affect the owners
championship bids?
With owners Speaking
of Childress, with Burton
leading the series and
Harvick situated in the fifth
spot, it seems the six-time
championship owner has
found the combination again
is poised to stay at the top. In
bringing Burton aboard his
operation, they have built a
championship contender step
by step together at a time
when both needed what the
other had to offer.
After his meteoric rise
by racing standards during
the most trying of times to
fame and fortune in the sport,
Harvick fell from grace.


Perhaps reaching the top tier
of drivers before he or his
team was ready, Harvick's
rebirth gives indications that
he is here to stay. Talladega
will put Childress' validation
to the test.
After placing all five of
his drivers in the chase in its
first two years, Jack Roush
has only two drivers in the
playoffs this year. However,
they are his two most
accomplished drivers, Mark
Martin and Matt Kenseth.
Talladega not only marks the
return ofthe owner's near fatal
plane crash, but a chance for
the two time championship
owner to raise his profile
once again and begin a final
charge as his two drivers sit
only 84 and 70 points behind
Burton.
With the drop off and
eventual release of Bobby


Labonte, Tony Stewart was
expected to carry the banner
for the next few years at
Joe Gibbs racing. After
winning the title last year
and positioning themselves
in the top 10 for the first half
of the season, Stewart and his
team surprisingly fell out of
the chase little by little each
week. In his stead, at least
for the time being, Danny
Hamlin has become the man
at Gibbs racing.
Sitting in third heading to
Talladega, Hamlin and his
team have the opportunity
to become the first rookie
in the modern age of
NASCAR to capture the cup
championship.
While Gibbs has claimed
two championships as an
owner, if Hamlin and his
team were to win the title,
considering it had never been


done before by a rookie driver,
it would be the feat of feats and
set his organization up as the
team to beat next year. With
past success at Talladega this
race could be that defining
moment of the season when
everything comes together
and a championship team
begins their run.
What other facts
involving the drivers and
teams consider into this
year's visit to Talladega?
With his rise to the top of
the championship, memories
of the stretch between 1997-
2000 have flooded the Burton
camp. During the period he
finished in the top five every
year and seemed poised to
be the next driver to join
that group of elite drivers.
A somewhat understated
personality in racing, the 18
time winner made a name
for himself with consistency
and a failure to put himself
in a hole even in the worst of
situations.
With a new team he seems
to have a unit behind him that
is finding ways to accomplish
those goals again and they
seem to get stronger every
week. With his previous
experience as a title contender
and his hunger to return to the
top, he will be hard to knock
offifhe has a strong finish. His
style and reputation will also
lend themselves to further
strengthening his position as
the leader as Talladega is a
track of survival. His recent
win at Dover and fifth place
finish at Kansas were the last
two hurdles for him to be able
to claim his back.
While he has cooled off
somewhat during the last
several seasons in comparison
to the torrid pace he set during
his first nine years, Gordon is
still in. the top elite drivers.
Much like Dale Earnhardt's
twelfth place finish in the
final 1992 point standings
festered the hunger needed
for him to claim his final two
titles, Gordon missing the
chase last year has fueled this
year's turnaround.
Combine that with a driver
who has matured into a
seasoned veteran who is more
consistent than headlines
these days, Gordon has been
in the minds of NASCAR
nation this year, but always
ready to pounce. Talladega
is his chance to pounce as
he, like Burton, has come to
understand how to survive at
the world's fastest speedway.
He comes into Talladega as


the second hottest driver since
the race started, with three
consecutive top five finishes
and the hottest since the
midway point of the season,
with eight top five finishes
in the last 11 races and only
two finishes outside the top
ten. He credits his success to
gelling with crew chief Steve
Letarte. That spells bad news
for the rest of NASCAR
nation.
Mark Martin is this year's
grand old man. Nobody in the
chase has as much experience
as Martin. He was a pioneer
of smooth and steady wins
the race in the. long haul.
With this being his last run
it is time for him to make his
move as well. This is track
tailored for him making his
move and considering he is
the defending champion of
the race, he should have a
strong finish.
Who has won atTalladega
among the chase drivers?
Earnhardt Jr. has won five
times. Gordon has claimed
four victories. Martin and
Harvick have found victory
lane twice apiece, while
Burton has one win at the
world's fastest speedway.
Who else among the non-
chase drivers could win at
Talladega?
With five victories, along
with Eamhardt, tops among
active drivers, as well as his
victory last week, Stewart
could pull off a victory. In
addition, to his statistics as
the 11th place driver in the
standings, he has nothing to
lose. So his team will not run
a conservative race.
Other Notes:
With five tracks of the six
left on the schedule of 1.5
miles remaining, Talladega
presents another opportunity
for the drivers to further
strengthen their position and
make some noise in the chase.
This could be particularly
true for Kahne who has three
victories and four top four
finishes.
The track that produces
"the big one" will require a
survival mentality and the
veterans are the ones who
know how to leave Alabama
with their championship bids
still intact.'
This stop on the circuit can
make for great theater as any
number ofcombinations as far
as who in the championship
chase will leave the track still
alive, who strengthens their
position and who makes a
move is possible.

and fervor to the program that has added an additional element
to its culture. He also came to the program with a wealth
of knowledge at stopping other teams' offenses, particularly
when stopping the run.
With the part of their season that will define it here, the
fate of what this season will be remembered for will lay in
the team's speed and its option offense. In the team's four
wins, the defense has come up with big plays due to their
speed. Those plays have often been momentum-swinging,
kick in the gut kind of plays that change an opponent's drive
from a potential game ender to giving the Red Devils the lead
or putting Williston in position to score and get back into the
game.
The spread offense utilizes as many as five backs.
"As many as three guys can handle the ball on any given
play and with us able to use so many runners, the opposition
can't key in on just one guy," Baker said. "It gives us a good
balance. The backs understand as long as we are winning,
that is what is important. As far as our receivers they are
playmakers and have made some big time plays when we
needed to get the offense going. And our line has done
well. Andre Greenlee has really stood out, but everyone has
improved and played well."

With a 2-2 record against the teams they lost to last year
and a much closer game to Ocala Trinity Catholic in 2006,
this has been a season of substance and a different feeling has
descended over the den. The Red Devils have an opportunity to
do something of monumental significance, but the losses also
indicate a penchant for losing focus. Which is the coaching
staff's biggest concern. Baker pointed out the loss to Dixie
County as an example. They had the lead, but Dixie County
scored in the final minutes. It was a game he felt the Red
Devils should have won. They missed several tackles, which
is the most noteworthy consequence of a lack of focus.

monies were needed to provide services to the residents of
the county. Unfortunately, with the pleas not being heard
or no action taken on those pleas regarding the millage rate
there may not be anyone left to provide service to. With
the millage rate being passed at 7.9 percent the residents
and businesses are feeling this expense and this gives the
appearance that the BOCC is anti-business and anti-existing
and new residents. It also appears that the BOCC wants
the county to go backward to where it was 30-40 years ago
instead of being in a controlled progressive mode. If the
taxes keep going the way they are going not only are we not
going to have future businesses but existing businesses will
fall by the way side and those contemplating moving to Levy
County will go elsewhere. This is only my personal feeling
and others will have to make this judgment for themselves.
We all know that being a commissioner is a thankless
job at times and not everyone is going to be happy with all
decisions that are made. But, the residents that spoke at the
final budget hearing are all voters. These are the voters that
placed the BOCC at the helm of our county government.
These are the voters that gave the BOCC the fiduciary
responsibility for their tax dollars. A question to ask yourself
is, has the BOCC responded to act reasonably with your tax
dollars or not? This is a question that each voter must ask
themselves. Because of the way the BOCC voted last night
and regardless of what transpires over the next two years,
last night's vote by the BOCC will not be forgotten. Because
you see commissioners these are the same voters that will be

I different, since after the baby is born is
when the real sleep deprivation begins.)
Angie started to push. Right off I was glad I
had gone to the Lamaze class. Her breathing
was all over the place. Frankly I'm not sure
she would have been able to get through
the next two hours without my coaching.
Yes, TWO HOURS! Poor thing; sweating,
working so hard, trying to be brave. You
would have felt so sorry for me. Angie had it
pretty rough too.
Angie had about strained her eyeballs
out of socket by the time the doctor finally
came in. "Oh," she said, "It looks like baby
girl just needs to be straightened up a bit.
You've been pulling her around a corer."
She pushed on Angie's side and immediately
the head began to come out. "Hold on Mrs.
Sheffield," she said in all her early morning
freshness, "Don't get in a hurry. Let me get
my scrubs on." I growled, and I think Angie
did too.
All my anger ceased in the coming
moments. Little Kailey was born at 8 lbs. 10
ounces; so beautiful she instantly stole my
heart. I turned to clutch Angie's hand. As our
eyes met I believe we both realized our lives
had been forever fused together. My love for
her welled up in my heart and spilled over
to roll down my cheeks. Angie and I would
forever ride together on a higher plane now.
She had been truly amazing; heroic in my
eyes.
The whole process had been miraculous;
the conception, the pregnancy, and now
concluding with the birth. I could not
explain away what I had witnessed. Adding


a few more million years to the evolutional
theories I Clung to at the time could never
satisfy or quench the questions arising
from the wonderment of this birth. How
could this bundle of love I now held in my
arms have ever spun from a glob of pond
scum? Ridiculous! I had just witnessed
the miracle of life, the labor of love, and
the inherent struggle a woman willingly
endures to bring them forth. Suddenly I
became deeply aware of my role as a man
regarding these matters of life and love. I
was a husband. I was a dad. I was a little
boy that had just brushed up against the
hand of the God at work. Could I possibly
walk away the same?
But anyway, it wasn't long after our stay
in the hospital that we began attending
church as a family. Two years later I finally
stopped running from who I was called
to be and gave my life to Jesus. Ironically
the Lord had used the birth of my child to
help me put away my childish thinking. He
helped me see the things that truly matter;
life and love. He had shown me that neither
can be found apart from Him. And he said
unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end. I will give unto
him that is athirst of the fountain of the
water oflife freely. He that overcometh
shall inherit all things; and I will be his
God, and he shall be my son. Revelation
21:6-7.

Beware of


slick lenders


The number of home fore-
closures around the nation
has risen sharply in 2006 -- a
sign of a cooling economy.
It's also a sign that preda-
tory home, mortgage, lenders
"have been taking advantage
of vulnerable borrowers. Tips
for financing or refinancing
include:
1. Don't get sucked in by an
incredibly low interest rate. If
an interest rate offer sounds
too good to be true, it prob-
ably is.
2. Talk directly to a reputa-
ble lender or a broker. Avoid
web-based mortgage enti-
ties who say that they screen
lendersup front and make
them "compete for your busi-
ness."
3. Quicker is not better. A.
responsible lender will invest
a considerable amount of
time with you to go over your
individual circumstances.
4. Avoid "equity stripping."
Don't refinance repeatedly in
a short time period.
5. Insist on a "tangible
benefit." An ethical lender
should be willing to provide
such documentation regard-
less of where you live.

In other action, the commissioners voted to accept the right
of way and private funds to help offset paving costs on LCR
104.
Chairwoman Nancy Bell asked Road Administrative Su-
perintendent Bruce Greenlee if this would put that road ahead
of others on the list.
Commissioner Danny Stevens said the board had already
agreed that if the road crew is working in an area and a road
that has had money donated to it is nearby, that road would
be worked.
He and Greenlee said it didn't necessarily mean the roads
were ahead of others waiting, but the funds were there and
needed to be utilized.
Moody said a policy needed to be developed and perhaps
the private funds be held in escrow.
Greenlee said he would hate to put money in escrow for
four or five years and he was of the understanding that in such
public-private partnerships, the work was done at the discre-
tion of the road department.
Stevens made a motion to accept the money and improve
the road when the department was in the area. Yearty second-
ed it and it passed 4-1 with Bell dissenting, saying she favored

some type formality in place.
During commissioners' reports, Bell also asked that a foot-
note be added to last week's budget public hearing. '
Bell said it had come to her attention that she misspoke
when she asked the millage be set at 7 percent. She said she
did not realize she had said percent instead of millage.
Commissioner Lilly Rooks said she didn't think the com-
missioners should get in the habit of changing the official re-
cord. Bell countered she wasn't asking for a change, only a
footnote to clear up her mistake.
Commissioner Tony Parker made the motion to allow the
footnote, but it died for lack of a second.

In other business, the commissioners:
approved department head salary increases at 5 percent
and union contracts with laborers.
approved the settlement of inmate medical expenses for
a former Levy County Jail inmate who was treated at Shands.
The county agreed to pay 65 percent of the $18,323 bill. The
amount is more than the sheriff had allocated and the money
will come from the general fund.
accepted a $50,000 grant for the Drug Task Force.

According to the Sept. 28 letter, Bush will leave local gov-
ernance to the town. The letter states the council "has a quo-
rum and can act in the absence of the mayor to address time
sensitive issues until the general election."
The mayor resigned her post after receiving resignations
from the two council members who had remained after an
earlier round of resignations left the town government unable
to muster a quorum.
The departure of council members Dan Bowman and Glen
Spetz leaves a council of three. Remaining council members
Dawn Clary, Douglas Dame and Larry Feldhusen were seated
after special elections Aug. 29.
Once Yankeetown has a full government, the five-member
council will appoint one of its members to act as mayor, ac-
cording to the town charter and as cited in the governor's of-
fice letter.
The governor encourages local residents to act in their own
behalf: "The Governor strongly favors local governance and
deference to elected officials, so he encourages responsible
residents concerned about their community to qualify for of-
fice...The time for division is past. The time for responsible
leadership and cooperation has arrived. This office will not
reinstate the board (Lambka's emergency board) or consider
more severe actions such as...dissolving the town charter, as
long as Yankeetown continues to make progress."
