STAFF WRITER
The prohibition against
alcoholic beverages may have
been overturned more than
70 years ago, but for some
people the battle rages on.
Residents,former residents,
clergy and business owners
all crowded Chiefland's city
commission meeting Monday
to voice their opposition to an
ordinance that would allow
an exception to the city's ban
on Sunday sales of liquor.
The ordinance was
written to allow a 10-year
grace period for two county
businesses that will soon find
they can no longer sell alcohol
on Sunday if the involuntary
annexation pursued by
Chiefland is successful.
Although most of the
citizens against the ordinance
spoke from a conservative
Christian stance, at least one
represented a far different
camp. Michele Minton owner
of Buddy's Bar, spoke against
passing the ordinance.
"Since when do we make
up laws for each individual?
They should all be the
same. Don't make specific
laws," Minton said. "We
should have all or none. Ms.
Monyei, I am impressed with
you. You stood up for what
you believed in. This is not
a religious issue:-We cannot


make laws' for one and not
the other."
George Sandora objected
to the ordinance on legal
grounds. Quoting Florida
statutes he said governments
should treat businesses in a
nondiscriminatory manner.
"This annexation of the
two businesses, and the
ordinance to allow them to
continue selling alcohol, is
discriminatory law," Sandora
said. "It discriminates against
other local businesses. And
business discrimination
is no different than racial
discrimination."


Osborn Barker called on
history. "Years ago our city
fathers took a conservative
Christian stance. I'm worried
about where we're going from
here. If we allow businesses
to sell liquor on Sundays,
where does it stop--adult
bookstores? Our fathers long
ago took this stance. I urge
you to stay conservative."
Sylvia McCullar said, "We
have a reprieve one day week
right now. We have children
here. I beg you don't let that
change. Pray for the children
and Sunday mornings."
Commissioner Teresa


Barron looked to the Burke
Harris Act, asking city
attorney Norm Fugate
whether the act had been used
in suits seeking remuneration
due to loss of liquor sales.
Fugate advised that he was
aware of no suit based on the
loss of such sales.
"Regulation of alcohol
licensees is a different
animal," he stated, "but that
does not mean that Burke
Harris would not apply
here."
Mayor Betty Walker said
she had received threatening
notes.


Lighthouse Church pastor
Walter Turner said he'd
had experience as a former
alcoholic and drug addict.
"Don't let this happen in our
town," he said.
Commissioner Teal
Pomeroy said, "I see a lot of
hypocrisy in this room. A lot
of people don't want'to see
alcohol sold here in town on
Sunday and yet they go out
of town for it."
Turner rejoined, "We
have an opportunity to

9, the parking lot there will be as still as Buddy's Bar in South Chiefland when the business will no longer
be able to have Sunday alcohol sales.

Violence finds its way
into rural schools more
frequently than urban or
suburban schools, according
to Chiefland's police chief.
With that sobering thought,
Chief Robert Douglas opened
meeting ofsheriff's deputies,
the fire chief, school board
members and principals of
Chiefland's three schools.
Douglas' intent was to
begin work on plans for
extreme situations that may
occur on school campuses in
his jurisdiction.
"Security must be firsthand


foremost," he stressed, asking
for help in formulating a plan
that would work both for
the schools and for the law
enforcement officers who
would respond to violent
situations.
The discussion included
issues that could help the law
enforcement community and
school staff to successfully
handle crisis situations.
Topics included
communication issues,
identification of individuals
who may be prone to violence,
floor plan familiarity and
master key access for


emergency responders, and
the need for a system to
enable responders to quickly
identify buildings and rooms
on school campuses. Only
one such, numbering system
currently exists in Levy
County schools-that being
Williston High School.
Administrative Assistant
Superintendent of Schools
Jeff Davis informed Douglas
that Levy County schools
have in place accountability
measures to handle
emergencies.
"We have scenarios to
test the measures. Each of


our schools can lock down
within three minutes." He
added that the schools were
required by state statute
to test the 59 measures
annually. The scenarios
demonstrate situations from
hazardous materials releases
to inclement weather to
potential violence.
Sheriff's deputy Grant
Sandlin said that during the
scenario drills, a call is made
to the school being tested, or
deputy sheriffs simply show
up at a school, hand a school
staff member a sheet of paper
describing a scenario, and


that the school must then
respond.
The chief also wanted to
know if schools currently
identify students who may be
prone to violence.
"We do that with gangs,
and as officers we have access
to their arrest records, not to
put their names in the paper,
but just identify potential,
problems so we can address
them," he said. 'He added
that it might also be desirable
to work with these students'
parents.

BES makes

it family

learning night
The fifth grade team at,
Bronson Elementary School
hosted the second Family
Learning night of the year on
Thursday, Sept. 28.
The focus of the evening
was on fun math activities for
the whole family.
Mary Alice Heath used her
classroom to teach money
math games, basic math fact
practice, math puzzles.
"Math is all around us,
and it is easy to incorporate it
in to our daily lives. Parents
can easily communicate that
idea to kids with games and
puzzles," said Heath.
Parents and students alike
had fun trying to guess the
amounts of different objects
in clear containers. Avalon
Harris, a fifth grader in Mrs.
Gore's class, won the prize for
guessing the closest amount
of pennies in ajar.
Pint-sized learners were
treated to a story called "The
Greedy Triangle" in Mrs.
Gore's room. The tale told
about a triangle that was
unhappy the way she was and
always wanted just one more
side from the Shape Shifter.
Students saw how each time
the Triangle added another
side, the figure changed and
looked like other objects
from the real world. After
their story, students picked a

Reach Out and Read starts
The Department of Health Levy County Health Depart-
ment announces the establishment of a Reach Out and Read
program, a national pediatric literacy program that encour-
ages parents to read to their children at an early age.
Providers will distribute new books to children age six
months to five years and offer reading tips to parents during
routine pediatric visits.
By providing parents with the information,-support and
materials they need to make books a part of their children's
lives, children learn to love books and begin school ready to
learn. Through ROR, every child begins kindergarten with a
home library of at least ten children's books.
Reach Out and Read is a non-profit pediatric literacy pro-
gram developed at Boston Medical Center in 1989 by pedia-
tricians and early childhood educators. Its mission is to make
literacy a standard part of pediatric care. Today, there are
more than 3,000 programs serving over 3 million children
across the country.

YOUR VIEW


Bush is correcting VA injustices
To the editor:
Veterans Injustice; truth, something intelligent and help
are on the way!
Recently Mr. William Franklin wrote an article wherein he
stated that "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 say something intelligent
and third say something to help their fellowman".
He went on to say "the greatest disgrace in the country is
the way our veterans and their families are being treated or
should I say not being treated." And then, of course "Bush
did it he cut this and he cut that and he continues to make
cuts". "....he has allowed their health care payments to be
increased three times what they are paying".
And so Mr. Franklin, in your words, I am offering you
some truth, something intelligent and something to help
our fellowman and it differs greatly from your report. And,
Bush is causing it. The source of this information is Sen.
Larry Craig, chairman of the US Senate Committee on
Veterans Affairs and excerpts from the GAO report in his
testimony in September 2006. (online at http://veterans.
senate.gov.) The percentage of patients who report being
seen within 29 minutes of scheduled appointments at VA
health care facilities has improved from 65 percent in 2002,
to 73 percent through the end of 2005. 2. The percentage
of primary care appointments scheduled within 30 days of
the desired date has improved from 89 percent in 2002, to
96 percent through the end of 2005. 3. The percentage of
specialty care appointments scheduled with 30 days of the
desired date has improved from 86 percent in 2002, to 93
percent through the end of 2005. 4. The number of veterans
VA treats in non-institutional long-term care setting has
increased by 50 percent since 2002. And the list goes on,
and on, and on..... ,
Recent media coverage of the Bush VA: In 2004, the
Rand Corporation examined why VA patients get better
chronic, preventive care than similar US adults. The answer:
Rand concluded that VA's edge is "linked to improved.
information technology, tracking of performance, and
accountability." "Washington Monthly", hardly a friendly
critic of President Bush, had this as it cover story in 2005:
"The Best Care Anywhere". 2. "Time" magazine had this
as a headline story one month ago: "How VA Hospitals
Became the Best." 3. And "Business Week" ran this story
just three months ago: "The Best Medical Care in the US."
And, a few accomplishments to consider: With enactment'
of the FY07 budget, VA's health care budgetiwill-have *
increased by 70 percent under President Bush. The GI
Bill education benefit for veterans has been boosted by 65
percent, raising the lifetime benefit from $23,400 to $38,700.
A new education program was created for members of the
Guard and Reserve activated after Sept. 11, 2001, providing
up to $30,960 in lifetime benefits. The maximum VA home
loan guarantee has been increased by 107 percent. Historic
legislation was enacted to permit certain disabled veterans
to receive their disability and military retirement benefits
concurrently. A new insurance program was created to
provide immediate payments of between $25,000 and
$100,000 to service members who have been traumatically
injured since the beginning of the War on Terror 2,700
injured veterans have benefited so far.
In a report by Chairman Larry Craig and Secretary of
Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson working together for the
nation's 24.5 million veterans (Washington, D.C. Sept 27,
2006 by Jeff Schrade) the following: What are the facts?
As of Sept. 28, 2006 the US Senate passed legislation
authorizing the following: Under consideration in Florida
alone: $377 million for new construction of a VA medical
center in Orlando; $307 million for new construction of a VA
medical center in Orlando; $85.2 million for renovation of
VA facilities in Gainesville; $65.1 million for an ambulatory
surgery and diagnostic center in Lee County; $49 million
for upgrades at the VA medical center in Tampa; $7.1
million for expansion of the spinal cord injury center the
VA medical center in Tampa. A committee of senators and
members of the US House of Representatives must now
hammer out a compromise bill which itself must pass both
Houses of Congress. This package is worth $2 billion and
will fund facilities for veterans in 22 states including Florida.
Mr. Franklin the truth, something intelligent and
something to help our fellowman and based on these facts,
it is entirely possible for you "to see some injustices undone
before you leave this world." and even if Bush does it.

Tell me, what exactly


hen I was a
child, my father
would dole out
punishment to everyone in
the group "in order to get the
right one."
I always thought this was
absolutely unfair and vowed
never to exercise this type
discipline when and if I ever
had children.
Fortunately, I never had to
make that kind of decision
because my three children
were always eager to sell out.
each other in order to save
their own hide.
But over fourdecades
of living, I have heard-and
even said-it's not fair.
For a few weeks now, I
have mulled over those three
short words and have repeat-
edly asked myself "What
exactly is fair?"
I .haven't come up.witb _.
any good definition although
I can probably rattle off a
dozen things that aren't fair.
I am not the only one
faced with this conundrum.
In the October issue of the
American Journalism Re-
view, a writer asks if report-
ers should clean up quotes.
It was a timely article
considering at last week's
county commission meeting,
Chairwoman Nancy Bell
asked that her slip of the
tongue be noted as such for
the record.
Bell referred to a budget
public hearing where she
asked the millage rate be set
at 7 percent.
Yes, percent. That's what
she said. Twice.
Yet when I wrote my ac-
count of that meeting, I said
Bell wanted the village at 7
mills.
I knew what she meant, or
at least I thought I did so I
changed her words, although
I didn't use it as a direct
quote.
Was it fair to Nancy Bell
to report something she did
not say? In this instance, I
would say it was.
She is not a newcomer on
the political scene and knows

THINKING OUT
LOUD





Carolyn Risner


the difference between mills
and percent.
Was it fair to the readers of
this newspaper who expect
and demand fair and accurate
reporting?
Probably not.
But what was I to do?
Editors across the country
have to make decisions like
this on a daily basis.
Roy Peter Clark of the
PoyntqejIs1ite.i jor b,u-Kio
nalistsoften clean up qutes.
He also said the decision
often hinges on whether the
person is a public figure or a
private citizen.
That's pretty much been
my rule of thumb over the
course of my career.
I worked at a newspaper
where the school super-
intendent wrote a weekly
column. It was riddled with
errors and bad grammar.
I ran it as is. Back then it
was an elected position and
I believed voters needed to
know who they had chosen
to lead the education of their
children.
So do I clean up letters to
the editor?
Not much.
Except for formatting in
AP Style, I pretty much let
the letters run as they are
submitted. Often you will:
see [sic] after a word or
phrase. That means we here
at the newspaper recognize
a mistake but we did not
change it.
It shouldn't be a newspa-
per's goal to make people
look stupid. .Oftentimes, they
do enough to satisfy that any
way.
We can never assume
that everyone who reads the


'?


newspa-
per has an
English
degree.
We write
for the
average
man and
we must
remember


that illit-
eracy is a
problem in this country.
I like quotes in news
stories. Not only do they en-
hance stories, they allow the
subject to tell the story rather
than it all be based on the
reporter's interpretation.
But ifjournalists actually
print quotes verbatim, there
will be lots of ers, mmms,
gonnas and ain 'ts in there.
And if folks are speaking
in dialesets Iat'goi'slreet
lingo, how-to you-interpret
it intelligently enough to
translate it on paper?
Email has revolutionized
the way things are done in a
newspaper. Now we simply
copy and paste reader sub-
missions, but again, we have
to remember that the people
writing from home make
-mistakes, too.
And so do professionals.
Weekly we receive submis-
sions from PR firms, educa-
tors and professionals that
contain mistakes. We, of
course, clean them up be-
cause we not only think it's
fair, we don't want to look
stupid either.
This newspaper wants to
be fair. We report the news,
not make it. And deciding
what is fair, often isn't.
The funniest mistake I
ever received came from
a church. It read (para-
phrased):
"Sister Dottie Lamb will
be at Worshipful Church Sat-
urday night where she will
talk about her life changing
trip to Hades."
Of course, I changed it.
Maybe I shouldn't have.
They may have had a larger
crowd.


Earth Talk:

Dear EarthTalk: Are
there any environmental
or human health risks to
using nail polish?
-- Deborah Lynn, Mil-
ford, CT

Conventional nail polishes
dispensed at most drugstores
and nail salons contain a
veritable witch's brew of
chemicals, including toluene,
which has been linked to a
wide range of health issues
from simple headaches and
eye, ear, nose and throat
irritation to nervous system
disorders and damage to the
liver and kidneys.
Another common yet tox-
ic ingredient in conventional
nail polish is a chemical
plasticizer known as dibutyl
phthalate (DBP). According
to the Environmental Work-
ing Group (EWG), a non-
profit research and advocacy
organization that campaigns
to educate consumers about
the health risks of cosmetics,
studies have linked DBP to
underdeveloped genitals and
other reproductive system
problems in newborn boys.
As such, DBP is banned
from cosmetics in the Eu-
ropean Union but the Food ,
and Drug Administration
(FDA) in the United States
has taken no such action,
even though a recent study
by the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control and Preven- I
tion found DBP and other
toxic phthalates in the blood-&
streams of every person they
tested. Further, five percent
of women tested who were
of childbearing age (ages 20- '~
40) had up to 45 times more '
of the chemicals in their m
bodies than researchers hadi :
expecttatToda-" : ..: 3r"
EWG attributetthe a'
prevalence of DBP in young'"
women to widespread use
of nail polish. "Women of
childbearing age should
avoid all exposure to DBP
when they're considering
becoming pregnant, when
they're pregnant, or when
they're nursing," says Jane
Houlihan, EWG's Vice
President for Research.
Luckily, safer nail pol-
ishes do exist and are readily
available at natural health
and beauty supply stores as
.well as from online outlets.
These products rely on
naturally occurring minerals
and plant extracts to beautify
nails without the need for
toxic ingredients.
Major nail polish manu-
facturers are also now get-
ting in on the act. According
to the Campaign for Safe
Cosmetics, a coalition of
organizations confirmed last
year that they would begin
removing DBP from prod-
ucts. And leading drugstore
brand Sally Hansen has said
it is reformulating all of its .
products to remove DBP and '
toluene as well as formalde-
hyde, which is also known to ;
cause cancer and reproduc-
tive problems.

Don't fall victim to check scams


Over the past few months
the Chiefland Police
Department-as well as
numerous other surrounding
agencies-has been inundated
with counterfeit check scams,
Police Chief Robert Douglas
said last week.
These scams, which are
often originated through e-
mail, prey on the age-old
"something for nothing"
mentality and those taken
by them often end up owing
thousands to their local bank.
Individuals receive a
"work-at-home" offer via
email in which they are to be
(according to the email) sent
checks from various places.
The victim is told to cash the
cheek at heir bank or open a
new account with the check.
The victim is told that
once the check is cashed they
can keep a percentage of the
proceeds as a commission.
The remaining proceeds are
to be sent to another party via
Western Union. Another way
of luring victims is to send
the bogus checks through


regular mail along with a
letter saying the victim has
won a contest. The letter asks
that the receiver simply cash
or deposit the check and wire
a portion of the proceeds to
another party to cover various
types of imagined expenses.
The end result is the same.
As you may have guessed,
shortly after the "Money
gram" is sent the victim is
contacted by the institution at
which the check was cashed
and informed that the check
was no good. The victim
then discovers the check was,
in fact, counterfeit and that
the account holder listed on
the check does not exist.
Some of these scams
actually go so far as to have
a person answering the phone


when someone calls in an
attempt to verify the check (a
bank for instance).
The Chiefland Police
Department is aware of no
legitimate business that
contracts private citizens to
cash 'checks on commission.
"We would urge people to
trust their instincts and pay
attention to the old saying. 'If
it sounds too good to be true,
it is too good to be true,"'
Douglas said.
Most of these scams
originate from abroad (usually
from Eastern Europe or
Africa) and are routed through
Canada and various points
within the United States.
This makes prosecuting such
scams virtually impossible,
especially on a local level.

Williston reader charges county commission to spend wise and reduce millage next year


To the editor:
Well folks, I did try hard! I
attended both public hearings
on the property village rate
in Levy County.I spoke be-
fore the county commission-
ers and requested that they
vote the millage rate down to


6.5 percent. I know that the
Commissioners would have
been able to work with the
6.5 percent and still be able
to financially run the county.
I do, however, give the com-
missioners credit for lower-
ing the millage a little bit;


not enough, and I give credit
to Commissioner Bell for
wanting to lower the millage
a little bit more.
Many voters of Levy
County may remember,
when I was a candidate
for commissioner in 2004,


Reader predicts tax tsunami will hit next year


To the editor:
Open letter to the Board of
County Commissioners:
I have two issues I wish
to discuss briefly, and the
first has to do with Mr.
Robinson's article in a
September 20Q6 issue of
the newspaper. The second
issue I wish to discuss is the
disparity in sentencing and
callous behavior displayed in
our courthouse.
Although I did not attend
either of the Levy County
Commission meetings in
question, I have researched
the substantive issues
contained in Mr. Robinson's
brief. I believe he is entirely
on the mark.
I disagree with another
citizen's opinion that
appeared in an earlier issue
of the newspaper suggesting
that population increase in
the county figures are linked
only to new housing starts.
I think the gentlemen's
argument may have
missed or glossed over the
significance of the recent
influx of mobile homes
and prefabricated homes
installed on site with limited
construction effort.
Such properties, in
effect, suppress job
growth. Moreover, these
figures ignore two-family
households that exist out
of necessity, due to lower
wages, increased gas prices
coupled with the large size of
our county, limited industry
and an influx of illegal aliens
contracted to do the kind of
work I did in Levy County in
my youth.
The result: a revolving
door effect on population,
with $7 to $10 hourly wage
earners being replaced with
cheaper contract labor. In
the meantime, our youth
are allowed abundant
opportunity to "hang out."
In reference to increase
in millage, I believe the
three county commissioners
who remained silent in
the face of the public's
request for a reduced rate of
increase should reconsider
their strategy. They may
have neglected to consider
the home insurance crisis
looming over the citizens,
who live in counties on
Florida's Gulf Coast (as
well as those on the Atlantic
coast). I'm sure I am not the
only homeowner in Levy


County who has seen his
homeowner's insurance
increase in price by two-
thirds, along with a reduction
in coverage.
Another matter of note on
these proceedings as reported
is the apparent disregard for
the need for commissioners
to answer the people., ;; .-
Having downloaded from
various websites questions
concerning national, state
and local issues facing the
people of the state, I have
found a remarkable number
of candidates at all levels
who have chosen, as you
did in your BOCC meeting,
to provide no response or
guidance for me as a local
constituent and habitual
voter.
Your no-response prompts
Sme to consider a no-vote
when your name is on
the ballot. Sitting silently
denotes an arrogance public
officials cannot afford.
Political arrogance
comes in more than one
form. Recently I saw on TV
a local politician running
for state senate brag about
having been a Democrat and
converting to the Republican
Party only in an effort to be
elected. He was assuring
*his true voter base that he
would not desert his previous
positions; his decision to
switch parties, he said, was
based on getting Republicans
to vote as quasi-Democrats.
My using this example is
not an attempt to influence
anyone's.inclinations or
ideology. I wish only to point
out dishonesty and hubris as
publicly expressed. The only
time such political tactics
can work is when the voter
turnout is low. In our recent
primary, the turnout rate for
all parties was 27 percent.
Have we entered into a
political time warp, back to
the 1930s when the ethics
and behavior of Louisiana
politicians was given a wink
arid a nod?
It is suspicious to me
that the millage decision
fell precisely at the end of
the fiscal year. Since our
property tax is paid at the
beginning of the calendar
year, this has the effect of
temporarily softening the
blow. Taxpayers beware: the
tsunami will hit next year.
The decision will overburden
the current tax revenue


base of wage earners. A
large number of your loyal
constituents soon will not be
able to afford to live in Levy
County.
Moreover, as long-time
homeowners in the county
take advantage of windfall
profits; -'elling-thii- h6fies
to an influx of people from
South Florida, voter ideology
will change. Consider in
five years being voted
out of office and finding
this pristine environment
exploited by the politicians
who replace you.
For a glimpse of the
future, look back to the water
wars of southern California
in the 1930s. The methods
.used by politicians then
should provide you with a
cautionary tale. I advise you
to proceed with caution. I
have yet to see a staff study
conducted on any pending
issue released to the public
at large. I am beginning to
understand why you insist
on hiring a second full-time
county attorney, complete
with staff
Addressing the issue of
disparity in sentencing, I
will say that what I have
witnessed of the chicanery
displayed in the process,
from the investigative and
discretionary bodies to the
deliberative and adjudicative
bodies, leaves me wanting a
warm bath and a penicillin
shot.
I have witnessed behavior
and language by officers of
the court that defy decorum.
Use of the "F-word" by a
judge in mixed company is
sleazy behavior. The strategy
that allows (or dictates)
disparity in sentencing is
incontrovertible evidence of
cronyism.
I have, of course; taken
the liberty of sending
these observations to the
appropriate people.
While I would not
attempt to sway anyone's
political ideology, I do wish
to influence the officers
who are visibly overweight,
urging them to get on a
weight reduction program.
An overweight officer will
more readily resort to the
taser, baton or gun because
he is unsure of himself
physically. Be proactive not
reactive.
James H. Douglas

I stated that in the years
ahead 2006-2008 that the
taxpayers would see a large
increase in their property
taxes. Many thought I was
NUTS and of course, I did
not get elected.
Now, in fairness to the
commissioners, they do not
appraise properties, but they
can adjust the millage and
they did, but in my opinion,
not enough.
I was hoping that I could
find a way in which the tax
collector could legally al-
low property owners to pay
property tax payments every
two months.
I do pay my taxes quarter-


ly as it helps me adjust living
expenses. I know that lump
sum tax payments are going
to be a burden on many folks
especially senior citizens on
fixed incomes. I just wish
there was a way to help these
folks.
Soon, we will be getting
the tax bill. That awful piece
of paper that is mailed to you
will not only have the ad-va-
lorem taxes to be paid; but,
in addition, the NON-AD
VALOREM tax special as-
sessment that ALL property
owners will pay.
Yes, we can deduct from
our income tax the ad-valor-
em tax but we cannot deduct


the non ad-valorem.
At the first public hearing
I was chastised because I
stated that that the property
tax increase would be a fac-
tor, and considered by voters
in the 2008 commissioner
election. I may be wrong, but
Smy statement was just my
opinion.
The commissioners set the
village and approved the
budget. I hope that the com-
mission will take charge and
spend wisely and perhaps
the county will end up with a
surplus and reduce the mill-
age even more next year.

Indians score first season win at homecoming


BY NEAL FISHER
SPoRrs WRITER
When Delmar Dial sacked
Crescent City quarterback
B.J. Sharper on the final play
of last Friday's homecoming.
game, it was the exclamation
point on a game that a
program trying to regain its
way badly needed.
In winning this curious
game of excessive turnovers
and penalties by a 12-0
score, it was the Indians who
made the fewer mistakes and
found a way to make their
opponents' miscue work in
their favor.
They took control of the
game and put the pressure
on Crescent City to make
something happen with 6:34
remaining in the first half
when quarterback Daniel
Galpin broke through the
Raiders' front four on the
right side of the line of
scrimmage, then galloped
down the right sideline for an
84-yard touchdown run.
The second quarter rushing
touchdown was the difference
as the visitors, who were
forced to play catch up made
several costly mistakes, while
the Indians made just enough
plays themselves for the
remaining two plus quarters
to protect their lead.
The Indians secured
head coach Bobby Rast's
first victory as Chiefland's
head coach with 1:03 left
in the game when Deonte
Davis busted loose off the
right tackle for a 14-yard
touchdown dash.
"On both touchdowns we
just simply felt it was time
to man up and start running
the ball with some strength,"
Galpin said. "So, we put
everyone on the right side and
ran an unbalanced formation
and ran it right at them. The
first time 'we scored, I think
we surprised them as we
went straight at them with
our strength and power.
When we scored the second


touchdown I think we had just
simply worn them down by
then. The coaches have been
pushing our conditioning
really hard, because of it we
had more than they had."
During the game's initial
stages it would have been
hard to believe the Raiders
would be worn down as the
game approached its waning
moments. The Indians
received the opening kickoff,
but Galpin was tackled behind
the line of scrimmage for a


six-yard loss on a quarterback
option on their first offensive
play. They then committed'
a penalty, which negated a
10-yard gain on their second
offensive play and were
forced to punt on fourth
down.
Crescent City followed
by moving the ball from
their own 26-yard line to
the Indians' 34-yard line,
propelled by a nine-yard
gain on their first play from
scrimmage. However, a

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


Being a native Detroiter, as the .
Tigers batted during the fourth
inning of Sunday's game against
the Yankees in the American League
Divisional Series I was ecstatic and beside
myself. It had been 19 years since the
Tigers' last playoff appearance and 22 years
since their last World Series title. In fact,
not only are noteworthy accomplishments
few and far between with the Tigers, there
has been only two times during my lifetime I
can recall my beloved hometown team doing
anything significant. Being under the age of
five when they qualified for the playoffs in
the early seventies I was too young to realize
what was happening, let alone remember it
and the 1968 title came the year before I was
born.
So as you can see words like champion
or qualifying for the post season and my
beloved hometown franchise aren't a
combination I am used to hearing. But as in
life, for every winner and rags to riches story
there is a loser in sports. In this case it was
the Yankees. Once again the words loser or
eliminated from the playoffs and the New
York Yankees are a combination the sports
world isn't used to hearing, although in
recent years it has become more common.
With over 25 World Series titles and over
35 pennants the Yankees until recent years
have been given a pass when they have
failed. However, as media and sports have
evolved over the last decade or so that view
of sport's most accomplished franchise has
changed. Of course, they are still looked
at as the team of team and the franchise
of franchises or the best of the best, but in
today's world while many franchises have
little said about them in the media or by the
fans, the Yankees are discussed at length in
the same context that the war in Iraq or the
Sen. Foley story is.
Nor is it a coincidence that when the
media began its evolution into what it is
today with talk shows, news only cable


stations and the possibility of anyone
anywhere in the world being notified
immediately of anything that happens, the
Yankees most recent dynasty was rising
from the ashes of several lackluster seasons.
It actually began before Joe Torre's arrival
in the Bronx. The current family tree of
executives, which is currently headed by
Brian Cashman, was put in place in 1993
and 1994. Although those executives who
managed the business end of the franchise
in those days have since left, their ideas
and philosophies continue to live within the
Yankees through their then understudies.
Cashman was taught by the executives
who ran the franchise in 1993 and 1994.
His policies and ideas are a direct result of
what he learned under their tutelage. That
executive team hired on Buck Schowalter.
Once again when the Yankees won their
first title during their current run, he was
long gone. But his influence on the first
generation of players and their development
under his guidance was what Joe Torre
inherited when he took over the managerial
reigns in the mid nineties.
As I write this article it was announced
about two hours ago that despite the
lightning-quick shredding the proud Yankees
absorbed at the hands of the often-inept
Tigers, the Yankees have decided to keep
Joe Torre as their manager. And of course,
I have heard the slew of opinions on sports
radio and read the same on newspapers'
websites. As for me I am still undecided
as to whether I would fire Torre if I were
in George Steinbrenner's position, because
I believe it is a symptomatic question of a
much bigger issue.
As the Yankees train began to gain steam
in the mid nineties so was sports reliance
to change in order to stay on top of the
heap. The world of sports I grew up with
in the '70s and '80s were about the same
people in the same place year after year.

fumble and penalty stalled
the visitors' first drive. On
their second drive Crescent
City gained possession of
the ball at Chiefland's 34-
yard line, but for the second
consecutive possession the
drive was slowed down due
to a fumble. Too close to the
end zone for a punt and too
far for a field goal attempt,
the Raiders called a passing
play on fourth down. Zack
Tyson picked off the pass.
The visitors' next drive
began on their 48-yard line,
but remarkably they fumbled
again and yet another drive
bogged down.
When Galpin used his
blocking to break to the
outside and turned to the


end zone two plays later,
the Indians put themselves
in a position to. gain control
of the game and influence
their opponent's play. After
the Indians' quarterback
broke through the defensive
line between the tackles and
then turned towards the end
zone, he was able to outrun
the second and third waves
of defenders. Crescent City
failed to gain any angles,
because of Chiefland's
tactical blocking. Galpin
finished off the play with a
cutback to the hash mark at
midfield and then cut back to
the sideline to avoid the final
defenders. An 11-yard gain
by the Indians' quarterback
on the previous play marked
the first time during this
game that the home team gain
significant yardage.
With a first and goal at
the Indians' eight-yard line
inside the final minute of the
second quarter, Crescent City
fumbled for the fourth time in
the half. This time Chiefland
recovered the loose ball.
The second half started
with Crescent City moving
the ball from their own 30
to the home team's 19 yard
line, but the defense stiffened
up and forced the Raiders
into a fourth and 14 situation
after dropping ball carriers
for losses on the previous
two plays. On the play, the
defense forced Sharper to
roll out and throw a hurried
pass. It found its way into the
hands ofJonathan Hayes, who


returned it the Chiefland 44
yard line. The drive, despite
chewing up six and a half
minutes, went for naught.
Nursing their six point lead
throughout the second half,
Chiefland closed the door
on Crescent City and saw
its running game show signs
it was coming of age. The
Indians took over possession
of the ball with 3:53 left in
the game. They moved the
ball 62 yards, scoring their
second and final touchdown
of the game. The nine-play
drive was highlighted by Zack
Tyson's 50-yard run. He ran
behind the left side of the line
for 12 yards and it looked like
the play had ended, but the
running back stood up and
then busted loose from the
pile. He continued to sprint
down the sideline and by the
time the play ended he had
run to the Raider's 14-yard
line.
"These guys are here
because they want to be,"
Rast said. "It is easier for
young guys to give up, but
they have stayed with it. They
have come out every Monday
knowing how hard a go it
will be. Winning was nice
for them. They have worked
hard and winning has a way
of curing ills. We still have a
lot to work on, but tonight's
games will help in showing
the team we can win if we
play our game and cut down
the turnovers. Games are won
on defense and they came up
big forcing turnovers."

VOLLEYBALL 2006

Bronson, Williston near season's end


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
In their own understated
yet systematic way the
Bronson Eagles' volleyball
team enter the post season
with an opportunity to cap off
a two-year run of impressive
successes. With one game
left against Williston the
Eagles record stands at 13-5
overall and 7-1 in the district.
Most significantly, their
district victory over Trenton
on Oct. 5 was the difference
between earning the number
one and number two seeds in
the tournament.
"Our main goal entering
this season was to finish
as the district's top seed,"
head coach Sherrie Schuler
said. "We are honored to
host the districts this year,
but as the number one seed
playing at home it gives us
two important advantages.
We are very comfortable at
our home gym and we can
watch the other teams play
the first night. That will help
with the fatigue factor. It
won't be easy, but I think we
are entering the tournament
clicking on all cylinders and
the win against Trenton was
important in that regard."
As the 2006 season began,
the Eagles, as the defending
district champions, were one
of the favorites to claim the
title. However, they also had
to replace two key players.
They quickly showed they
had overcome the losses as
they opened the season at 7-3.
Schuller credited overall court
improvement and transition
as the most significant reasons
for the start. It gave them the


ability to play the hard smash-
mouth power volleyball that
has become their signature
trademark.
However, playing in the
Keswick tournament in St.
Petersburg perfected and
was the final piece of the
puzzle in Bronson polishing
their game. Including the
results of the Keswick
tournament they finished the
season with a 6-2 record,
which includes the number
one ,seed clinching victory
over Trenton. Although the
winning percentage is about
the same, the Eagles final
stretch of the 2006 season
showed much more decisive
and commanding play. As
the district tournament
approaches, the play with
fewer loose ends is where the
team wants to be.
In particular, the Keswick
tournament helped Bronson,
because they faced units
with good team speed. It
also helped with the issue of
fatigue. The Eagles are not a
deep team, carrying only eight
players on their roster. Being
in the middle of a stretch of
seven games in 12 days, they
showed signs of weariness as
they lost to Williston in the
game following the Keswick
tournament.
With that in mind, the
team has called up junior
varsity players Brittany
Smith, Brittany Griffin and
Breana Elliot for the district
tournament. Smith and Elliot
will add serving strength
to the Eagles attack, while
Griffin will up the hitting and
passing game. All three set
and play the net well.


"We had two girls who
moved up from the junior
varsity team when the season
began and we worked more
as a team this year than
in 2005," Senior Goldie
Gollihue said. "We worked
as a team last year, but this
season it has been even more
so. We don't have the height
advantage and we aren't a
deep team, but we win with
other means. For us we made
up for what we lacked with
teamwork, movement, our
mindset and desire. Our love
of the game really got us into
a good focus and we played
with it throughout the season.
We really feel like the team
is family. Our setters and
hitters really bonded and
communicated and the team
worked in synch this year."
Gollihue went one step
further than her coach when
describing the Keswick
tournament experience in
comparing their competition
in St. Petersburg to the
University of Florida's
volleyball team. She said it
was an experience that proved
the Eagles could beat teams
beyond those in their region
and district and changed their
outlook in regards to being
able to advance further than
just district play.
Nonetheless, if the Eagles
want to win the district
tournament they will have
to avoid their susceptibility
to slow starts and five game
matches. In all five of their
losses, Bronson lost the first
match and compiled a 2-5
record in their matches that

singled out Ft. White as the
team in the district that had
shown the most improvement
between their two meetings.
And of course, P.K. Yonge,
who defeated Williston twice
in a twelve-day span at the
beginning of the season, is
the favorite as they have
continued a tradition of
winning this season.
Even with Yonge's list of
successes, being in such a
strong district could mean
anyone is capable of winning
-the title. The Red Devils
are looking to use that as an
adya ntage to sneakup on the
top two teams. If'Williston
can avoid Yonge until the
final, this year's tournament
could spearhead the future
of the program as they are
capable of defeating any team
in the district.
Williston gets stronger as
the matches wear on and if
they make it through their first
match in the bracket opposite
Yonge, the next contest
would be another opportunity
for the Red Devils to learn
to put together all their skills
and give them time to polish
their game before taking on
the, perennial powerhouse.
The team also got experience
in handling a demanding
schedule during district play
as they embarked upon a
six match, 14-day stretch in
which they won the first four
games.
"The girls know it will be
a rigorous schedule and they
will have to give it their all,"
Nivala said. "The seniors will
have to play every match as if
it is their last game, because it
might be. That is something
I can't coach. As the season
progressed we started to dig
up more and more balls and'
they started demonstrating
a wider range of skills and
versatility.
"We mixed up the line-ups.
Some the changes worked
and some didn't, but the
team has become more able
to handle changes and make
adjustments during, matches.
Those things will definitely
help us in the districts. If we
can make it through the first
match, I like what we can do
in our second game, because
we get stronger as the days
wear on. Even with Yonge
having the reputation they do,
I still think the district is up
for grabs, because it is such
a strong district and there is
so many variables for all the
teams."
Nivala thought the Red
Devils particularly matched
up well against Ft. White,
Dixie County and Chiefland.

EGam e Continued from page 9
to buckle down and show why we played a tough non-district
schedule. The players should be more experienced and ready to
play. We can't afford to lose our focus for the smallest amount of
time or our opportunity to take a decisive step towards winning the
district will vanish."
What to look for: The Red Devils' spread offense had another
good outing, totaling 310 total yards against Walton. 249 of it came
by way of their rushing by committee approach. Quarterback Devin
Timmons had a ho-hum 4 for 10 performance, but took care of the
ball and threw for a touchdown which was critical to the victory.
Although difficult, the loss to Dixie County played a role in the Red
Devils better handling the atmosphere of the road at Walton. Playing
their third straight road game and this particular game having the
implications it does for the district title, it could be an important
cog in the Red Devil machine against Santa Fe. The question is do
the Red Devils put aside the distractions of the road and get off to a
good start, unlike previous weeks? The need to keep their poise in
a tight game might arise again this week as a tight game throughout
is a very strong possibility.
In Santa Fe, the Red Devils will have to face the productive tandem
of K.J. Carter and John Joseph. They cause confusion among their
opponents defense, because they line up in different positions and
are used as both runners and receivers. The Red Devils will have
to pay particular attention to the Raiders use of the duo and not let
them get loose for big plays. Nor can they let the Raiders catch
them sleeping, if they are used as diversions.
Baker feels his team is comfortable facing Santa Fe as he pointed
out Williston will not face anything during district play they haven't
already seen. With that said, their execution and understanding of
how to block the Raiders will also play a big role. As usual, if done
right they will be able to use their speed to control the clock and keep
Santa Fe's offense off of the field. The spread offense is designed
to put the game away in the fourth quarter as opponents become
fatigued, but penalties and turnovers have nixed that possibility in
their losses this year. Like their previous three games, this game
will be another test for a blossoming program.


WNeal
The same culture and atmosphere, which created a specific
era unique to each and every sports team, franchise or
league, existed year after year. As a fan it was a sign of
comfort and there were never new issues to deal with. We
could skip the researching the issues and understanding
their implications part of the new season, making life
much easier. Coaches or managers like Tom Landry, John
McKay, John Robinson, Bo Schembechler, Woody Hayes,
John Robinson, Sparky Anderson, Mike Kzyzewski always
coached the same way and at the same school or professional
franchise. Even in the world of racing, Dale Earnhardt
was always a Childress guy, Ernie Irvin and Davie Allison
always drove for Yates and Rusty Wallace was always part
of the Penske stable. Sure players, coaches and drivers
changed their residences, but it was few and far between.
However, those who did move on could be considered the
forerunners and pioneers of what sports has become today..
For the few who did move on, they realized like life, in
sports, times change and even if it wasn't any one particular
person's fault when championship's were becoming fewer
and fewer, it was time to end an era and begin a new one.
And that brings us back to the Yankees, while-most of the
sports world were very stagnant to move on, like they have
done throughout their history, they began to build a specific
culture and atmosphere around the Bronx, which would be
the backbone and define this era of success over the last ten
or so, years. In the mid-90s, they grasped that change was
needed in the context of creating a new era. However, also
as what happens in life, they were copied. The Yankees did
not change and do what they needed to do to continue to win
titles.
Fortunately for the fans there is a clear line of when the
rest of the sports world caught up to the Yankees and the
recent run of success could be divided into two chapters,
pre-2001 and post- 2001. Of course 2001 marks the Yankees'
loss to the Diamondbacks in the World Series. While the

Continuedfrom page 8
Yankees have made the playoffs every year since then, they
have not dominated and have become just another post-
season participant, instead of the overwhelming favorite.
The fabled franchise's fall to the young lions in Detroit
could be in part traced to the philosophy of signing a certain
type of player who would be an integral part to continuing
this era of Yankee success. They failed to get the big hit or
the big pitching performance. The Yankees had in the past
gone out and signed the biggest name free agents. They
always seemed to fit in place. Since the 2001 season those
signing have gradually been less and less compatible within
the Yankees' machine and the team's cohesiveness has done
the same. This is readily available to see as they fail to
watch each and every batter's turn at the plate, which is how
teams learn to beat a pitcher.
SWhy are these things happening? The answer is simple,
since 2001 the Yankees era has failed to change with the
times. Torre obviously is the most well-known link to this
era of Yankee baseball, but will firing him cause the team
to move on and begin a new era by changing its culture and
atmosphere? On the other hand, will keeping him cause
the Yankees to begin a new era by changing its culture
and atmosphere? If Steinbrenner and the Yankees want
to reclaim championship glory it is not a matter of firing
a likable coach who the average Joe identifies with. It is
a matter of starting a new era grounded in changing the
culture and atmosphere of the franchise. Torre's indecisions,
bad decisions and recent playoff games where he was
outmanaged is but a symptom of a team still relying on the
foundation of an era founded over a decade ago. Never was
it was more apparent in sports that no matter how great a
coach, player or franchise has been in recent years if they
want their era of dominance to continue they need to change
the foundation of their culture and atmosphere every few
years as the Tigers' newer and younger way of life decisively
trumped the Yankees.

Ad Valorem Tax Exemption

on the Ballot WHAT IS IT??

You will see the following question on the November
ballot...

196.1995. Economic development ad valorem tax
exemption. -.

Shall the board of county commissioners of this county
(or the governing authority of this municipality, or both) be
authorized to grant, pursuant to s. 3, Art. VII of the State
Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses
and expansions of existing businesses?

Yes For authority to grant exemptions.

SNo Against authority to grant exemptions.

Ad valorem What is it?
This allows the Board of County Commissioners to grant
property tax exemptions to businesses up to 100% for up to 10
years to new and expanding companies.

What can be exempted?
Existing business who wish to expand:
> 100% of the assessed value of all improvements to
real property made to facilitate the expansion
> The net increase in tangible personal property
acquired to facilitate the expansion
New business:
> 100% of the assessed value to all improvements to
real property made by or for the use of the new business
> All tangible personal property of the new business


In all cases, land will continue to be subject to taxation
and in most cases any existing buildings will be subject.
to taxation.

Who Qualifies?
After the passage of the referendum, the Board of County
Commissioners will create an ordinance stipulating what
businesses and industries qualify for the exemption. In the
past, the exemption has been limited to those new businesses
in manufacturing establishing 10 or more full-time jobs; any
business establishing 25 or more full-time employees provided
that 50% or more of its sales are outside of the State of Florida;
and any office space owned and used by a corporation newly
domiciled in Florida that serves as a corporate or regional
headquarters and houses 50 or more full-time employees.

How does this help Levy County?
Having an ad valorem tax exemption available helps stimulate
economic development within the county. This referendum
would assist in the growth of existing businesses and attract
new businesses into Levy County. The potential for more jobs
with higher wages increases when tax benefits can be offered
as an incentive.ub. 10/12 & 11/2/06

Levy declared disaster area
Farmers may get loans
The U.S.. Department of Agriculture has designated 29
Florida counties primary natural disaster areas due to losses
caused by drought and strong spring winds that occurred from
March 1, 2006, and continuing, announced Kevin L. Kelley,
State Executive Director of the USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) in Florida..
All qualified farm operators in the designated areas are eli-
gible for low interest emergency (EM) loans from FSA, pro-
vided eligibility requirements are met.
The primary natural disaster area counties are: Baker, Bay,
Calhoun, Citrus, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Escambia, Flagler,
Gadsden, Gulf, Hernando, Holmes, Jackson, Lake, Levy, Lib-
erty, Marion, Nassau, Okaloosa, Orange, Pasco, Putnam, San-
ta Rosa, St. Johns, Sumter, Union, Walton, and Washington.
All counties listed above were designated natural disaster
areas on Oct. 4, 2006. Farmers in eligible counties have eight
months from the date of the declaration to apply for loans
to help cover part of their actual losses. FSA will consider
each loan application on its own merits, taking into account
the extent of losses, security available and repayment ability.
FSA has a variety of programs, in addition to the EM loan
program, to help eligible farmers recover from adversity.
Interested farmers may contact their local USDA Service
Centers for further information on eligibility requirements

Creating your

Fashion displays regioriaflair.
Cuisine brings out a locale's eth-
nicity. Architecture, too, varies by
region: Mission-style architec-
ture is different from Georgian;
a Tudor mansion is miles apart
from a Modernistic home.
Architecture can also indicate
when an older home was built.
e Colonial Revival houses were
I/ generally built between 1880
nto 1955. Mission-style homes
n were popular from the 1890s to
the1920s.
Homes built today replicate
nearly every: architectural style'
from every era. Do you know
your home's architectural style?
Do you know what you'd like it
to be?
Knowing your home's archi-
tectural style, or your personal
architectural preference, will
help you direct an architect or
designer in planning a home,
or a remodeling project. An ar-
chitect or designer can help you
explore your preferences and
create a plar that is tailored to


home's architectural style


your lifestyle and weds a home's
existing style and structure with
a new addition.
Your home's architectural
style also will help guide deci-
sions about building products,
which punctuate a home's de-
sign. Prairie-style architecture
uses low-pitched roofs, banks
of casement windows with art-
glass or geometric-shaped grille
patterns, and large square porch
supports. Greek Revival archi-
tecture includes an entry porch
supported by square or round
columns, rectangular transoms
and sidelines surrounding the
front entrance door, and elabo-
rate trim accenting the eaves. ,
In addition to drawing in natu-'
ral sunlight, windows are key
components in an architectural
style. Most window mnanufactur-
ers, however, produce generic
windows for the mass market
rather than specialty products
for niche architectural styles, ac-
cording to Williams.
"Today's builders are accept-


ing very nondescript windows
as though they're 2x4s, and ul-
timately sacrificing the distinc-
.tion of the home," Williams said.
"Building-products manufactur-
ers have developed broad prod-
uct lines that don't have the dis-
tinguishing characteristics that
they did a century ago. There is
just no comparing the quality of
the materials and workmanship.
"The beautiful details of tradi-
tional millwork have been down-
graded to plastic moldings, cheap
veneers and mass-produced fix-
tures ... all poor substitutes for
the real thing. If homeowners
are looking for products that truly
represent Georgian architecture,
for example, they may have to
look pretty hard to find the right
products."
To learn more about how an
architect or designer can help
you with a home remodel or con-
struction project, visit the Ameri-
can Institute of Architects at aia.

Building Design at aibd.org.

Avoid a fall

It's that time of year again,
when homeowners scramble up
ladders to clean gutters, install
storm windows and cut branches
on trees.
That is why the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Sur-
geons (AAOS) is advising people
to take proper safety precautions
to reduce the chance of falling or
having other ladder-related acci-
dents.
While ladders aid many house-
hold chores, accidents are more
commori than one realizes. Fre-
quent injuries include cuts, bruises
and fractures.
'. -. S trying safe can be made easier
by following these tips:
Inspect the ladder. Check for
any loose screws, hinges or rungs
that might not have been fixed
from its last use. Clean off any
mud or liquids that might have ac-
cumulated.
Properly set-up the ladder.
Place on. a firm, level surface.
Never place a ladder on ground
that is uneven and watch for soft,
muddy spots. Remember to al-
ways engage the ladder locks or
braces before climbing. If work-
ing outside, make sure the ladder -
when extended will not hit elec-
trical wires, tree limbs or other
obstructions.
Remember the one-to-four
rule: the bottom of the ladder
should be one foot away from the
wall for every four feet the lad-
der rises. If you're going to climb
onto a roof, the ladder should ex-
tend at least three feet higher than
the rooftop. And, the upper and
lower sections of an extension
ladder should overlap to provide
stability.
Do not use a ladder or its pail
shelf as a seat between tasks.

EIHarper Continuedfrom front
Harper said he was interested in being a part of the CARES
program because he believes that farmers should be good
stewards of the land and that the program is a natural exten-
sion of that effort. He grew up in agriculture but worked as
an engineer for 35 years before returning to farming when he
retired.
Harper said he didn't find any aspect of the program diffi-
cult to implement at his farm and he likes the idea of improv-
ing efficiency in his operation.
"As an engineer, my background is that everything has a
process," he said.
Farm owners like Harper who have met verifiable standards
of excellence in resource management receive a CARES
designation and earn the privilege of posting a sign on their
properties identifying them as award winners for their good
work.
One of the keys to the success of the program involves
site visits by public officials who assess the implementation
of state-of-the-art resource management techniques, or Best
Management Practices, at the farm property.
"Farmers have long been good stewards of the land," said
Andrew Walmsely, environmental services coordinator for
Florida Farm Bureau. "Now with new information and tech-
nology available, farmers are able tobe even more proactive
when it comes to protecting the environment."
Walmsley said it is important to recognize those involved
in the CARES program for their role in maintaining Florida's
natural resources.
Recently, the Florida Legislature granted the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Consumer Services the authority
to create the Environmental Stewardship Certification Pro-
gram (ESCP). The ESCP serves as a vehicle for encourag-
ing incentive-based and cost-share environmental programs
throughout the state.

The ESCP is a three-part program consisting of quality as-
surance, education and CARES recognition. Farmers enrolled
in the ESCP will implement sound, positive environmental
practices while establishing and following environmental
management plans that maintain profitability.
Rich Budell, Office of Agriculture Water Policy assistant
director with the-Florida Department of Agriculture, said the
Suwannee River Partnership CARES program "is one of the
crown jewels of what we're doing statewide. This shows the
farmer's commitment to conservation and protecting the en-
vironment."
Budell, speaking to the crowd of over 200 attending the
dinner, pointed out that the farmers being recognized had
voluntarily implemented best management practices that in-
creased the efficiency of their operations and helped protect
the environment.
"The future of the state lies in privately held lands," he said.
"We need to assist those landowners."


EAlcohol Continuedfrom front
make history-to make a statement."
Shane Keene said he'd rather "see somebody drinking
down the street than a sex offender living nearby."
Commissioner Rollin Hudson said he had come close to not
voting for the involuntary annexation. "If we don't pass this
ordinance...I shouldn't have voted for the involuntary annex-
ation. I don't believe in stomping on other people's rights,"
he said.
James Justice disagreed with those who felt they were
speaking for the community. "You say you've been talking to
the community, but just who?"
His wife Janet added, "This is supposed to be a free coun-
try."
Another local pastor, Andrea Knuckles, had the opinion that
the business owners knew the town would eventually envelop
the area and that when that happened, they would be subject
to the Sunday ban. "They knew when they purchased the land
the bar is on that this was going to happen. This actually al-
ready sits inside the city. We cannot change for one or two.
They are very wealthy people and it won't hurt them at all."
Hudson made a motion to pass the ordinance. When it died
for failure of a second, some 30 or so residents clapped their
approval.


IvI olence Continuedfrom front
Deputy sheriff Grant Sandlin stated the sheriff's office as-
signs resource officers or SROs to the schools. "We are in the
schools every day. The first thing we do is try to go to these
kids and work with them."
Douglas received approval on having police officers back
up SROs. "We'd like our officers to go to the schools and be
visible, if that's alright with the schools.' Both Sandlin and
the principals agreed to the idea.
Among the first of the action items to be taken will be to set
up the numbering system for buildings and classrooms. That
process will begin with the student resource officers making a
survey of the schools.
