THE IAST WORD


Fate of hospital now

in state's hands
BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
StaffWriter
FANNING SPRINGS-More than 200 area residents turned
out Tuesday for what many viewed as a matter of life or
death.
A public hearing conducted at the request of Williston's
Nature Coast Regional Hospital drew an overflow audience
to Fanning Springs' Shiners' Club.
WellFlorida Council convened the hearing at the request of
Nature Coast, which is challenging plans to bring a hospital
to Chiefland.
Jeff Feller, community initiatives director with WellFlorida,
a private non-profit agency based in-Gainesville, opened the
floor to public comments with the warning, "We are here to
gather facts from the public which will have a bearing on
the application to the state. This is not a court procedure."
Comments made at the meeting were taped for delivery to
Tallahassee.
Alan Bird, administrator at Williston's hospital, was the
first to comment. He spoke of the difficulty in recruiting
professionals "in today's volatile health environment," and
added that even if a hospital were to be built, there would
be no guarantee that it would succeed. He referred to the 80
percent rule, a Florida statute requiring state approval on
certificates of need.
The rule states that a new hospital will not be approved until
the applicant can reasonably project an annual bed occupancy
rate of 75 percent rather than the 80 percent quoted.
Bird added that more hospitals meant limited funding had

City moves forward with impact fee study


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
CHIEFLAND-When
new residents move into
an area, the cost to a city is
often judged to be costly.
Chiefland city commissioners
considered an impact fee
study conducted by Melissa
Proctor of Government
Services Group. Factors
considered in the study
included law enforcement,
fire, park systems and
transportation, and whether
grants were received to help
offset those impacts.:


Several commissioners
were concerned about the
effect impact fees would have
on current residents. : .
For example, mobile home
residents who are upgrading
to a site-built home on the
same property could find
themselves subject to impact
fees.
Proctor saidthatprotections
for current residents could
be drafted into the eventual
impact fees ordinance.
Commissioners unanimously
accepted a draft impact fee
study by the group after a


motion was made by Alice
Monyei and seconded by
Rollin Hudson during the Oct.
23 city commission meeting.
The approval does not
initiate fees themselves but
provides the go-ahead to the
group to continue working
on the study. Mayor Betty
Walker asked for a copy of the
county's impact fees study to
consider alongside the city's
draft study.
In other action,
commissioners:
Adopted an updated
strategic plan, moving the


enterprise zone application
closer to submission to the
state. The motion was made
by Teresa Barron, seconded
by Monyei, and passed 4-
1with the only "no" vote
being cast by Teal Pomeroy.
Considered creating
a resolution to rename SW
5t Street to Frank Buie Park
Drive. The recommendation
was made by Monyei,
seconded by Barron and
passed unanimously.
Unanimously passed
a resolution allowing the
city to institute accident fees


and to hire Cost Recovery
Services to collect the fees.
The motion was made by
Pomeroy and seconded by
Hudson. Commissioners will
review the agreement in one
year to determine whether
the fees are causing undue
hardship.
Unanimously passed
a resolution to allow police
chief Robert Douglas to
pursue an FDLE grant for
approximately $2,400 for the
purchase of equipment.

1851with John Standley Jr.
and the couple's three young i
sons, Edwin, George and,

John Francis was excused
from military service in the '

soldiers.
His sons George and
Edwin served in the Home
Guard. Mary Caroline's son
John went to war, and he
was wounded in battle near Mary Caroline Helvenston Sta

New Cedar Key project will


engulf three city blocks


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
CEDAR KEY-Cedar Key
should have a new face to
present to tourists a year or so
down the road, if the vision
of Cedar Key Holdings LLC
goes according to plan.
Part owners Julie and
Roy Norton presented their
Plans for Cedar Key Village
to Levy County's tourism
Development group during
the Oct. 26 meeting.
The group intends to create
a mixed-use development on
Sa three-acre block (Second
and Third Streets and C and
' D Streets) at the center of
Cedar Key.
'The development will
: include six historic buildings
which are currently being
: restored. New buildings will
not be historic renovations
Sbut will be designed in a
t' stylecompatible with the late
1800s.
Norton told the council
about the use of tax credits
being used to offset some
* development costs. Approval
forthe credits is gainedthrough
Sa three-step application
process and is available for
Historic reconstruction to
commercial buildings. The
Process begins with putting
in an application to the state


historic preservation officer.
Once the application passes
state approval, it proceeds to
the federal level.
The second part is
completed after restoration
is completed and includes
submittal of a cost estimate
to the state. During the final
stage, a state representative
inspects completed work.
The developer can receive up
to 20 percent of project costs
for the credits.
The development will
include spa, private marina,
hotel and condominium.
The condo units are sold
fractionally-each unit is
jointly held by eight owners
and every owner has equal
access to all condo units.
Preconstruction sales are
going on now. Condo
construction is expected
to be started this year and
completed in 14 months.
County commissioner
Lilly Rooks asked whether
a site had been selected for
placement of sand removed
during the dredging process.
Roy Norton said that two
different disposal methods
were being considered-
either the dredged material
would be suspended not far
from the site and allowed to
air dry and drop to the ground,


or it would be disposed of
off-site. Arrangements had
been made to dispose of the
materials with a property
owner off the island, he
added.
Articles aimed at selling
the project will appear in
Florida Coast magazine and
the New York Times, Julie
Norton added.
Council members also saw
and approved draft copies
of two brochures designed
to lure visitors to Levy
County. The shorter of the
two brochures is intended for
welcome centers along 1-75
and at the Georgia / Florida
line. The more expensive,
16-page visitor's guide will
be distributed to a specific
audience. The brochures
should be printed in early
November.,
Council member Carol
McQueen told the group
that she has developed and
submitted 'an article for
inclusion with Original
Florida's "One-tank Trips"
promotion. McQueen used
the theme of "Relax with
Nature" 'to lead visitors to
destinations throughout the
county.
The next council meeting
is scheduled for Nov. 30.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


OPINION


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2006


OUR VIEW



You have a responsibility
Election time. Freedom of choice. THE day. A deci-
sion making time that will have ramifications that
will last four years. They are choices that will have
direct bearing on you, which is all the more reason to make
informed decisions.
As next Tuesday nears, voters have only four days to gath-
er facts, discuss issues and make educated choices about the
people they will choose to represent them in Levy County,
Tallahassee and Washington D.C.
It's not too late to go on a fact-finding mission. Don't take
anything at face value. Weigh the issues; ponder the facts.
Decide who you believe and then vote for the candidate who
is most representative of your way of thinking-and one you
can trust.
This time next week all will be said and done. And you
can have an important role in Levy County and Florida's
future. Make a concerted effort to be at the polls between 7
a.m. and 7 p.m. The privilege that you have to take part in
a democracy has been protected for hundreds of years. Men
and women have died to protect that privilege. You owe
them something by showing how important it is to cast a
vote. You owe it to your county and your state.
You owe it to yourself. Vote Nov. 7.

Says story had misinformation

To the editor:
This letter is in response to the article in your paper Oct.
26, 2006 and is to set the record straight on the information
you printed.
Izaak Walton Developers LLC have stated that
Yankeetown will reap significant benefits from the
development that they propose. The citizens of Yankeetown
have gone to the polls and have determined through their
vote that they want to see a future of controlled growth
and are very much against this development, as currently
presented. That is not to say residents are against growth but
they do want to keep it limited to something they can live
with.
I will address the misinformation you printed below...
1. The development will create 150-180 new jobs- We
are a retirement community and aren't looking to create a
large number ofjobs. Small businesses that \\ouldp.rovide
jobs is another matter-but-since we are nowonly 600-people.
bringing 150-180 workers here daily, would in itself strain
our infrastructure
2. Local Sourced materials- No local business, except
Home Depot in Crystal River, could supply the materials
needed for this project. The few we have are far too small.
This would not benefit our business owners.
3. Mr Spittler says that this is environmentally
sound and that he will.try to have it certified as a LEED
( Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
project. First of all the damage done to our environment
will far outweigh any certification he may secure. LEED
certification (www.usgbc.org) states in it's opening pages
that projects built by their standards are... a) not to be built
in undeveloped areas that are less than 5 feet above sea
level... b) Not to be built within 100 feet of wetlands and c)
not to be built where a threatened or endangered species are
found. This project breaks all of these rules.
4. Therewill actually be 220 units, not the 180
mentioned and 180 of them will be transient. This has the
potential of overwhelming the town and infrastructure of
Yankeetown by potentially bringing thousands of new
people, weekly, to a town of 600 residents. The picture you
showed in your article.is only a small part of the overall
plan and apart from the 220 units, is another proposed
development that could have, as many units, on the other end
of Yankeetown.
5. They are not adding roads as they said and want
to use the right ofwyay on our very narrow road system for
parking their multitude of vehicles, thus further impacting
our area
6. They are not adding water but are tying into our well
system and will use a minimum of 95,000 gallons per day,
35,000,000 per year, for their proposed development
7. They are proposing a wastewater treatment facility
in a coastal high hazard area which will be used for their
development only. Their argument is that Yankeetown can
use it as a lift station for a regional sewage facility. This
facility isn't even in talking stages and may be 20 years

down the road. Developers have a habit of abandoning these
facilities, leaving them to the city or county to run
8. The only money they have expended at this point is
for drawings and mortgages. No permits have been issued.
The opposition from residents is certainly "not too late", as
they've stated. There are many opportunities now and in the
future for resident input on their proposal with local, state
and federal agencies that will oversee permitting.
9. They have in no way "bent over backwards" to work
with the town of Yankeetown. Their initial contact with us
was to tell residents that "they were going to build whether
we liked it or not".
10. They have plans to dredge the shoreline of the river,
an Outstanding Florida Waterway, to create a number of
new marinas. Their argument is that it will help the flushing
of the river. In actual fact it will help the flushing of their
new marina. According to SWFWMD the health of the river
is good in the area of the proposed dredging and would
continue to be healthy without the project.
11. Plans are to build 2 -88 boat dry racks in a high
velocity Hurricane Zone, directly adjacent to homes and on a
major Manatee breeding and birthing canal.
Mr Feldhusen is correct..."You need to see what special
place this is".... .-' .

how that can happen. We've lived with it now for a year

We need the paper ballot
To the editor:
On Oc. 23, I went to cast my early ballot at the Office
of the Supervisor of Elections in Bronson. I cannot tell
you how disheartened I was to see a row of electronic
touch-screen voting machines arrayed like the contents of a
commercial video arcade against the wall of the small lobby.
The clerk gave me a small credit-card looking thing to
insert in the machine. The ballot appeared on the computer
screen, and I was instructed to vote by touching the little
square next to my candidate's name. After I did this, and
the little squares were lighted up next to my candidates of
choice, or "yes" or "no" on the Constitutional Amendments,
I touched "cast the ballot" on the screen, and the picture of
my ballot disappeared as my vote was supposedly recorded.
But where was my ballot? Well, I'll tell you.
Theoretically it was a tiny little set of electrons, electrical
impulses smaller than an atom, recorded magnetically on a
computer disc or an electronic chip. You can never see it, or
touch it, or hold it in your hand to inspect it. You just have
to take the word of the machine company technical expert
who sets, monitors and fixes the machines for the elections
supervisor. If you want a recount, the technical man pushes
a button and the same total reappears over and over. Just
like a compact disc player plays the same song over and over
by reading the same music disc. There are no real ballots.


ers"


They are invisible, like fairies or cosmic rays.
So how do you know that when you pressed Jones on the
screen that the chip was not fixed to record Smith? Well,
because the technical man tells you it was not. It can't
happen. Nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wrong.
But.no, really, what can possibly go wrong? Now that q
you only need to bribe or threaten one technical man who
controls what is on that chip or disc? And who is it again
who is in charge of the election? Why, the government, and

the party in power, of course.
So how do we fix it? Okay, we just vote them out. Sure
we do. Electronically.
With little invisible impulses that they control. They smile
and say: "Trust us."
And they can simply choose to lie about the results.
With the electric touch-screen, and the invisible electronic
impulses you have nothing. He who rules the voting
computer chip rules the world.
I'm telling you, we need that paper ballot. And by the
way, we don't cut down rain forests or redwoods to make
the paper. We use planted pines and recycled paper, even
mushed-up recycled ballots if we choose. That is not an
issue. -*, I .* .J
As an attorney, I have represented candidates in election
recounts. The sheriff's deputies carried in the padloked,
heavy steel ballot boxes. We opened the locks, pulled
out the paper ballots, carefully examined each one, and
recounted. The Democrat, Republican and Independent
Chairmen all participated, as did the elections supervisor,
and the candidates and their lawyers. The free press was
also present. And the precious ballots were there. We held
them in our hands, and read the voters' marks, and counted
them or rejected the spoiled ones. There were no invisible
electronic molecules, no lone computer nerd holding up a
tiny chip, assuring us that it held thousands of legitimate
votes. You can't see them or count them, you just take his
word.
But ndw that's all you get; the word of a technocrat and
the local elected folks who've been sold a bill of goods by
his company. A company that gets very rich by destroying
your right to a verifiable vote with their nifty, high-speed
gadgets. It's very modern. Everyone is doing it. We
mustn't be left behind or look like hicks. We have to be up
to date, just like Kansas City.
Let me tell why this makes me sick. I carried a rifle in the
U.S. Marine Corps for four years to protect my right to vote
and yours too. Millions did before me, and millions will in
the future. Hundreds of thousands have died for your right
to vote. Because without the vote, the dream of our laws
and constitution becomes a tragic, hollow joke. The right to
vote gives the ultimate power to the common citizen, to the
people. One swipe of the voter's pen and presidents pack
up and leave the White House. One swipe of that pen and
congressional and senate seats change hands. In the end, to
have a free country with self-government, it's all about the
VERIFIABLE vote. Because of the simple, verifiable paper
ballot, this has been the greatest democracy in the history of
the world for two hundred and thirty years. Are we to put
all that at risk because we are a generation of trendy, gadget-
obsessed consumers of electro-technology?

Lincoln said that the-destruction of this mighty nation could
only come from within. Are we going to let it happen on our
watch?
Let us return to the simple, proven technology of the paper
ballot. Election fraud is a thousand times easier to detect
when you have precious pieces of paper to hold in your
hand, to study, to put under a microscope if necessary. It is
our right. The right of the electorate to make this decision,
not elected officials following some trend of folly.
Before a year has passed, we need to haul those expensive
but untrustworthy gadgets to the landfill. Pile them up, and
crush them all under the treads of a bulldozer. Money is not
the issue, even if they cost more than a new courthouse. This
is not a frivolous matter, or the current tempest-in-a-teapot
of the day. What these machines steal from us is beyond
price. Bought with blood and lives. They are a fatally
stupid idea.
Of course, if you insist on recovering some of the wasted
money, sell them to Russia, or China, or some South
American dictatorship where elections are already a joke.
Anyone who runs for Supervisor of Elections on the
"destroy-the-machines-ticket" has my vote. What about
yours?

are 50, 60, or 70 percent disabled but who are unemployable.
These veterans are rated as permanently or, totally disabled
but their percentage is not 100 percent. Their ad valorem tax
would be adjusted by the percentage of their rated disability,
not the total and permanent rating.
This amendment would remove hundreds of deserving
veterans from the current relief they are already receiving
from the current state program. This Amendment is deceiv-
ing and I urge all to vote NO on this Amendment 7.

Some questions not asked
To the editor:
Either your reporter is terribly gullible or she never
thought about the answers to some of the questions brought
up by her glowing article on Peter Spittler and his fabulous
development plans for Yankeetown.
For example:
Exactly which 150 to 180 of Yankeetown's 60 to 90-year-
old crowd are planning to put in for those minimum wage
jobs so generously offered by Mr. Spittler et al?
Which "local" source (Yankeetown, Inglis, Levy coun-
ty??) is willing and able to furnish those building supplies
that Mr. Spittler mentioned?
Which environmental concerns does he see "factor heav-
ily"? The manatee birthing grounds that are in the canal
where he intends to build two 88-boat high-rise dry docks?

Maybe it's the paving over of permeable surface areas to
make way for all that resort parking on the town right-of-
way? Or perhaps it's the 150-year old trees that line River-
side Drive which he intends to kill digging IWI sewer lines?
(He's already removed one perfectly healthy tree of primary
concern of that vintage from the Izaak Walton property with-
out even bothering,to apply for a permit.)
I suggest your reporter ask Mr. Spittler how many lawsuits
he, his associates and fellow investors have been involved in
during the past ten years. (I mean besides Yankeetown and
Indian Rocks Beach.)'
Oh yes, Mr. Spittler has changed his image considerably
since he told the town he was "going to build whether you
like it or not." He is even regarded by some as a "very nice
man," but then, of course, Natalia Wolf of Sky Development
Group and her husband were characterized as "the nicest
people." Ask property owners in Citrus Springs about trust-
ing developers who are "nice" and give "beautiful presenta-
tions."
It's normal to ask for references before agreeing to any
large undertaking. Ask Mr. Spittler for references from folks
who live in the last development he built. When was that
anyway?
He certainly has "bent over backwards" to try to persuade
people to come over to his way of thinking. A small dona-
tion here and there may have helped, too. And we're espe-
cially pleased he is willing to leave surrounding site-built
homes intact. Did the reporter really have reason to believe

ONLYFOUR
NEWS FLASH: Tax Hike Survey of hundreds reveals
that there may only be four tax payers in Levy County who
actually want higher taxes.
This past weekend's Cedar Key Seafood Festival was the
perfect event to get a finger on the pulse of Levy County Tax
Payers concerning the latest 26 percent increase in this years
property tax revenue.
We found that after surveying literally hundreds of Levy
County residents that there may only be FOUR tax payers
who are actually in favor of the higher property taxes...And
they apparently have gotten their way not only this year but
for the last several years as well...By the way, last year's 18
percent tax revenue increase was a record for our county.
Who are these four tax pirates and what motivation could
they possibly have?

Concerned over Amendment 7
To The edit -:Ij n a \ r, -.'rt .r.t I
My concern is the wording of this Amendment (7). The
key phrase here is (Combat Related). Many disabled veter-
ans are totally and permanently disabled but are not combat
related. Many of these veterans were service personnel who
were behind the lines or aboard ships at sea. These veterans
are not combat related but are service related during war
time.
This amendment would effectively remove them from the
present program that is now in place with the state.
The current program exempts them from the ad valorem
tax and their widows. Amendment 7 does not address the
widows of these deceased veterans as does the current
Florida State program. Further more, there are veterans who

Meet the Press


Cassandra Journigan
Reporter
Original Hometown: Mesopotamia*


Orignnai oinetown:
*Mesopotamia. I was there assisting at the birth of Methuselah. OK. I'm not really that old, but I
have started hearing the comment, "You don't look that old." Actually I was born in a Navy town.
Portsmouth, Va. No, I wasn't around early enough to know Davy Jones. I'm not that old!
Why Levy County?
It is the most special place I have ever lived in my life. Hands down. And I've been around the
world twice on a turtle's back...
Why the newspaper?
I think it's because I'm the lucky one. I've worked for newspapers before-first on a college paper,
next for a free-press paper that printed whenever, then as a stringer for a weekly and then a daily.
This is my first full-time reporting position. I love journalism. It's my passion. Newspapers play a
vital role in our form of government.. It is only through careful, balanced reporting that the people
can find out what is going on in their community. I view newspapers as guardian of representative
government.
What role do you feel the Levy County Journal plays in the community?
Besides being there covering all the local meetings, I believe that the-Levy County Joural
Provides a much needed cheering section to the people and events that make our community
unique and wonderful.
What is your favorite part of the Levy County Journal?
My favorite part of the workweek is seeing the freshly printed paper on the newsstands
Wednesday evening. As far as the paper itself goes, I love the Community Calendar, because it
lists everything we hear of that's going to happen in the area. I also love to read what everybody
else has written.
What do you like about living in Levy County?
The people are really great, friendly and very active in their community. Shortly after my husband
and I moved here, there was a public forum on water at the high school. We went. What a
surprise to see so many people turn out. Both the auditorium and gymnasium were packed. I
find the citizens of Levy County to care deeply about their community, and to be quite willing
to express their opinions. I also love the woods, the river, the farms and the coast. The natural
beauty of the area is wonderful. And the parks that preserve our wilderness.
What is the biggest risk you have taken?
I'm a risk taker. I don't race cars, or jump from perfectly good airplanes, or swim in rivers where
alligators live: Nor do I have the money to play the stock market. But I have bounced around the
country looking for new terrain, changed jobs to escape monotony and even quit a perfectly good
job to go back to school and earn my first degree. I got that degree the year I turned 45.
What is the best advice you've been given?
My father frequently quoted the words of Shakespeare, especially Polonius telling his son
Laertes, "To thine own self be true." That's stuck with me all through the years.
What are three things you tell people about yourself?
I have a drift factor of +10. I can't remember anything that isn't written down. I'm interested in...
everything.
What is:
The last movie you've seen? I recently saw "The Last Waltz" for the first time. I know
the film is 30 years old, but I guess I'm just hopelessly out of date as far as pop culture
goes.
The last book you read? "The Bonesetter's Daughter," by Amy Tan. I find an author I
like and I read every one of his or her books. Then I go into mourning until they publish a
new book, or I find a new favorite author.
The one TV show you can't miss? I don't have any favorite shows. I watch the news
every day. I like CNN's Wolf Blitzer, C-Span, and FSTV. And whenever I can I watch
the home decorating channel on Saturdays.

that we should have feared he'd bulldoze them over?
Did Mr. Spittler mention to your reporter that the reason
he can only build 40 permanent residences (really 39) is
that's the maximum density the law allows? Did he tell
her that IWI is calling the other units "resort residential" to
get around those laws? Maybe that's what he meant when
he said he tries "to merge the architectural design with the
economic reality." When he said that "the town would be
well-served by having a single developer," did he say who
else would be well-served, monetarily?
. Neither the town nor any resident can be held responsible
for his group having "invested considerable time." Many
of us invest considerable time in things that just don't work
out the way we want them to. Don't we all wish we could
recoup some of the money we've foolishly squandered when
"we've passed the point of no return in terms of what we've
spent."
We understand how his group's plan calls for adding sew-
age, tons and tons of it, to our town, but please ask him to
explain how it would add water and roads. Are they plan-
ning to take out even more trees and pave over even more
permeable surfaces to make more roads for the increased
traffic they would bring to this little village? If so, where?
Let's see, 180 units, with two to three people per unit plus
the families and low-income housing for the 150-180 person
work force they are going to have to bring in to run and
maintain everything... that's 400 or 500 or so more private
vehicles, plus their boats and trailers, plus the many service
and delivery vehicles, plus the IWI shuttle back and forth to
the boat docks. Oh my, does that really add up to around a
thousand new people moving to a town of 600? That doesn't
seem right. Correct maybe. But not right.
And parking? Oh, yes, they plan to use the town right-
of-way and the town park for that. Of course, that would
make Riverside Drive only 18 feet wide and cars would
have to back into traffic to get out of parking spaces. So,
there'd be a fender bender every now and then, but, what the
heck, there's no town police to enforce anything, so who's to
know?
I haven't a clue how Mr. Spittler proposes to make more
water available to the town. Salt water, maybe, ... if they
dredge too deep in our fragile aquifer.
Oh, pardon me, it was sewers, not sewage, this economic-
,sorry, ecological-minded developer mentioned to your
reporter. I have yet to hear any word about IWI develop-
ers putting in a regional sewage treatment plant to include
present Yankeetown residences. More power to them if the
developers intend to build it on the other side of Hwy 19 and
include Inglis and south Levy county in the plan, especially
if IWI agrees to pay for all Yankeetown hookups. But I seri-
ously doubt that that's in the cards.
I believe your Mr. Spittler was referring to a package
sewer plant in a Coastal High Hazard Area and Flood Zone
solely for the crowd they're bringing to towri. And, if we
can believe our Florida neighborsto the north,thbse plants-
frequently fail. lalye that's why some counties prohibit
them. In past presentations IWI did meitineit something
about use of their lift stations. That's pumping stations,
many of which would inevitably be flooded in any unusually
high tide, of which there are several in any given year.
I wonder how many licensed plumbers reside in Yan-
keetown? If there is one, at least he or she would definitely
benefit from those extra jobs Mr. Spittler and IWI Develop-
ers would bring to town.

To the editor:
First let me tell you why I love living in Yankeetown.
I have lived in Yankeetown for the past five years. I was
raised in Crystal River, just 14 miles away and spent much
time in this quiet coastal community as a teenager. I mar-
ried a man from Yankeetown whose family is deep rooted
in this area. (The Youngs and McCranies). We moved
to Georgia where we spent the next 23 years. In 1999 I
divorced and my 22 year job was downsizing so I decided
it was time to come home and start over. Crystal River

had become too "busy" for me. When I left there was one
traffic light in town at the junction of SR495 & Hwyl9. It
just didn't feel like home anymore. I loved being in a quiet
neighborhood where you weren't afraid to go walking at
night or ride your bike or even leave your door unlocked
when you weren't home. Yankeetown is this sort of place
for me.
I dp not see that Isaak Walton Developers LLC will give
Yankeetown anything positive.
I personally think the IWI is attempting to.pull the wool
over Yankeetown's eyes. The thing is "IT'S HALF COT-
TON" as my daddy would say.
The development claims it will create new jobs?
Yankeetown is mostly retired people who aren't looking
for a job.
Those who will work already have a job.
Those who don't have a job, either don't want to work
in the first place or they won't work for less than twice the
minimum wage.
What will happen is the hiring of Mexicans and imma-
grants [sic]who can't speak English. They are a dime-a doz-
en. Just take a look at all the construction going on; whether
, it be road construction, building or housing construction.
Take a look at how many cannot speak English. but, they
account for much of the workforce nowadays because they
are cheap.
The development will need many of these "unskilled"
laborers for the goferss" and the ditch digging and the
cleanup and the dirty jobs.
I'm not saying Yankeetown has no "skilled" people. I'm
sure IWI will eventually need "fishing guides" and "grounds
keepers". I'm sure we have great carpenters, plumbers and
roofers in the area. With a development this size I have no
doubt that IWI has long ago selected the "contractors" that
will be hired. That's not to say that the contractor won't hire
some "locals".
I can't agree more with Marsha's response about Local
Sourced Materials:
No local business, except Home Depot in Crystal River,
could supply the materials needed for this project. The few
we have are far too small. This would not benefit Yan-
keetown business owners.
IWI has in no way "bent over backwards" to work with
the town of Yankeetown.
I was at the initial meeting and their bottom line was "we
are going to build whether you like it or not". When asked
what the citizens could do to stop the development, IWI's
answer was "nothing.....its gong to happen".
"Change happens whether you like it or not"
I have attended almost every town meeting. IWI has
used the "lawsuit" being retracted as a bargaining tool to
get what they want. We "negotiate and they will retract the
lawsuit".....how convenient. Why would Yankeetown even
remotely think of going into a contract with someone who is
currently attempting to sue the town.
I agree wholeheartedly with Mr. Feldhusen "You need to
see what a special place this is"....

on Thursday, Oct. 12, raised
over $32,000 for Shands

Sponsored by Farm Credit

Forestry Association, the
tournament hosted 170 golf-
ers from all over North Flor-

of the day was the Bankers'

between local banks and
credit unions within the tour-
nament. Taking home the
Bankers' Challenge prize was
Campus USA Credit Union,
with players David Barber,
Peter Subach, David String
and Lyle Schreck.
Special guest and Shands
Miracle Child, Grant, visited
the tournament. He and his

of Grant's fight for life within
his first months after birth, re-

reason for the event: helping
the kids of Shands Children's

"There are so many things
that the money you raise

article the
news that Red
Auerbach
died of a heart attack last
weekend is several days old,
but I still can't help thinking
of what he meant to me.
Like the family member we
all have it didn't dawn on
me the importance of his
example until his death.
Growing up in the '70s
and '80s, Auerbach's
coaching career had long
since ended. However when
I began following the NBA
in the late '70s, his shadow
was still large and looming
even though he long past
his prime. Until the day he
retired he was still thought of
as a man who could build a
championship team.
But he didn't merely
want to be a champion. He
wanted to do it his way and
differently. In our society
it is not good,to be different.
Different means a person is


strange and weird. Strange
and weird means there is
something wrong with a
person upstairs. They are
words, which describe a
person's inability to cope
with the rigors and stresses
of dealing with modem day
life. Yet it seems as if every
person who is successful
to the point they are well
known or even famous
possesses the very trait of
being different. They not
only do it their way, but it is
at the core of their success
and why they become who
they become to the rest of us.
In Auerbach's case, he
made himself by doing it his
way. His way was his genius
and when a person wins
16 titles it is hard to argue
with his personality of being
different and his originality.
SAuerbach's life was more
than one simply to be
admired for championships
and his place in the NBA
Parthenon of great people.


RED AUBERBACH
It was to be admired for
showing that different is
not bad. In fact, different
does not make one strange
or weird. It is what gives
that special kind ofperson
who succeeds and reaches
new heights in whatever
they might endeavor to
accomplish that distinctive
and irreplaceable something
that is essential to their
accomplishments.

Lady linksters look forward to next season


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
WILLISTON-After
compiling a 4-4 record in
2006, the Williston Girls'
Golf team's season might not
look,i tkenthatl partlarly
stands out. However, it was
one that has.coach Jim Smith
and the golfers feeling pride
and looking forward to next
season.
The team's first highlight
occurred when freshman
Kaylie Church joined the
unit.
Originally Smith only
expected to have three golfers,
which meant they would not
be able to compete as a team.
In high school competition a
team must have at least four
golfers to compete as a team.
"We only hadone freshman,
two sophomores and juniorr"
Smith said. "We didn't even
know if we would be able to
compete as a team before the
season started, but then Kaylie
showed up and she played
well. Her results were a nice
surprise. The girls got better
as the season went on. They
played and practiced hard
and represented Williston
with class. The girls enjoyed
playing every tournament and


I enjoyed coaching them.
"We finished third in the
districts, seventh out of
12 teams in the regionals
and defeated the eventual
district champion., ,.Ocala
Trinity,.n(qSo we had some
accomplishments this year,
and showed some solid
play. I think our experience
heading into next year will
make us hungrier and give
us the desire to work harder
in becoming more polished
golfers.
Joining Church on the
team were sophomore twins
Arielle and Kendra Claude
along with junior Trisha
Cline. The three latter names
played in their second district
and regional tournaments this
year, which should be a help
to the team next year.
The victory over Ocala
Trinity should also be a boost
to the team next year as it
gained a lot of confidence and
was a major cog in the team's
final push this year.
Church paced the team in
bothpost-seasontournaments,
shooting a score below 115 at
the districts and then a score
below 112 at the regionals.
The Red Devils failed to
place any of the golfers in the


top 10 at the regionals, but
Church finished 14th and the
three other girls improved on
their standing from last year.
Smith acknowledged
Sthe course they ,-played,
ithe,-regionals at, the Lake
,Dialmond Golf Club,Course
in North Marion, was by
far the most difficult they
encountered all season.
After playing the course,
he is looking to improve
the team's short game,
specifically their ability to
make easy putts as well as
better approaches to the
fairways.
"I think was learned a lot
from the regionals," Smith
said. "We really fought hard
through a difficult course and
we gained a lot in our ability
to fight through a tough
course. You got to learn to
keep playing and keep your
head in the game. Golf is a
lot about the mental part of
the game and you can't still
be thinking about what you
did several holes ago. I think
we really did that well as the
tournament went on. Because
of it our game got better as
we played more holes and we
began to adjust better.
"We learned to deal with the


fact that the course left little
room for error. The course
had a lot of narrow fairways,
because it had sand, water and
woods. That ability to adjust
was really important."
, Speaking of little room for
error, the team desperately
needs to add players to its
roster next year. Having
only four golfers on its roster
was definitely a handicap.
Competitive play requires the
top four scores be used.


With only four golfers,
the team does not have the
luxury of one of its golfers
having an off day. Smith
felt two of their losses were
directly attributable to its
Ssmallroster,, ... ,
The team strength's was
its ability to shoot off the tee
box and its chemistry. They
worked well together as a
team and gave each other
great support.


Mitchell takes Rye tourney
BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
CHIEFLAND-Jordan Mitchell emerged as the 2006 Rye
Grass Tournament winner, holding off a hard charging Jamie
Whitehurst in a sudden death playoff.
The Atlanta resident was forced into sudden death when
the defending champion of the tournament gained one stroke
on the eventual winner on the final hole.
After both men parred the first hole of the playoff, Mitchell
scored an eagle on the par 5-second hole to win the tournament
for the first time.
Heldat the Chiefland Golf and Country Club, the tournament
is held annually to raise money needed to buy the rye grass
the course needs for the winter.
Thomas Bailey, director of the tournament, said the
tournament was very successful in raising the funds and.the
competition itself. Over 200 golfers competed during the
weekend of Oct. 13-15 and the club believes it is one of the
event's more successful tournaments.

WILLISTON-The Williston Red Devils spent the better
part of the 2006 season putting themselves in position to win
the District 5-Class 3Atitle. For the first seven games of their
schedule that is exactly what they did, but they fell just short
in clearing the last hurdle.
While they produced their largest offensive output of the
season and out gained North Marion by 198 yards, they could
not find a way to get ahead on the scoreboard as they fell to
the Colts by a score of 27-21.
"We played better than they did out there," Williston Coach
Jamie Baker said. "But they
won on the scoreboard, fair and Wiiston 7 6
Williston- 7 6
square. With all of the turnovers
it is a tough loss to swallow. We
had twice as many first downs NorthMarion 71
and had possession of the ball
more than North Marion. If you
showed somebody the stats it
would be hard for them to believe we didn't win, but when
a team plays another good football team you can't make
mistakes."
From the opening kickoff the Red Devils seemed poised
at any moment to take the lead and force North Marion into
playing their A game. However, the Red Devils compiled the
kind of list that makes coaches gray prematurely as they did as
much damage to their own title hopes as North Marion. The
list includes a dislocated elbow to running back Travis Evans,
seven fumbles, over 10 penalties; two bobbled kick returns, a
missed 27-yard field goal, giving up 14 points off of turnovers
and the failure to score on a 4" and 1 late in the game.
Despite the sudden lack of crispness and decline in the
Red Devils' offensive execution, the team was still rewarded
for strong play throughout the majority of the season as
Dunnellon's loss left Williston in the runner-up position.
"It's a new season," Baker said. "Anything can happen
from game to game. We need to clean up our mistakes and get
ready to play next week. We can't look past next week. Then
we can think about the playoffs."
The game itself made no bones about what to expect from
the beginning. The Red Devils bobbled the opening kickoff
and fumbled a pitchout on their second play from scrimmage.
Quarterback Devin Timmons then rambled for gains of 22
and 34 yards to move the ball into North Marion territory, but
the drive stalled when Williston fumbled for a second time
and was called for an illegal shift. Rodrigo Quezida's 27-yard
field goal attempt sailed wide right and North Marion dodged
the proverbial bullet.
Throughout the game the visitors, with help from the home
team, found ways to hold Williston off the scoreboard. They,
scored what turned out to be the winning touchdown riith
9:38'1eft in the gaine when Albert Gay' rh'l 1 yards bttitnd'
the right side of his offensive line to make the score 27-19.
The Red Devils then mounted an 11-play drive, taking them
to the Colts' goal line before Mario Brown was stopped at the
one-foot line on 4' down with 5:54 remaining in the game.
With the change of possession, the Colts took over possession
of the ball inside their one-yard line. Smelling a safety, the
Red Devils Andre Greenlee tackled Ryan Williams in the end
zone and cut the visitors lead to six. After an exchange of
fumbles by both teams, Williston took over possession of the
ball with 2:46 left in the game. This time they drove to North
Marion's 23-yard line. However, an illegal shift procedure
and a four-yard loss on a running play forced the Red Devils


into a fourth down situation. Timmons' pass fell harmlessly
to the ground after Demontrelle Smith got a hand on it and
North Marion won its fourth consecutive district title.
"We took our two best offensive lineman and put them
on the right side of the line on the fourth down play," Baker
said. "We use our best back at the time and thought we could
get into the end zone. We didn't want to try anything too
extravagant. It was supposed to go inside and the idea was to
push through any seam we could find, but we had to run it to
the outside."
After dodging a second bullet when Williston fumbled
during its second drive, the visitors took advantage of the
home team's early
6 2 2 failures. Mike Brinkley
6 -2 21 connected with Tim
4 Dandy for an 84-yard
4 6 27 touchdown. Dandy
caught the ball at the
North Marion 40 in
full stride and ran the
remaining 60 yards into the end zone. Their other scores came
on a 5- yard touchdown run by Gary with 5:41 remaining in the
first half and an Ivan Kelenc fumble recovery. He returned it
13 yards for a touchdown. Demario Simms sacked Timmons
on his blindside to cause the fumble.
The Red Devils tied the game in the first half twice. The
first time at 7-7 with a 59-yard Timmons to Brown touchdown
pass. Timmons' connection with James from 25 yards out
with 2:50 remaining in the first half tied the score for a second
time. Timmons and James connected for the second time in
the game in the third quarter on a 42-yard touchdown pass.
Both of the Red Devils' touchdowns in the first half came on
the ensuing drives following North Marion's first two scores.
Evans injury also hampered the Red Devils attack.
Suffering a dislocated elbow, Evans injury forced Williston to
nix several plays, which allowed them to use his speed.

Bronson Fall Festival raises money for recreation


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
BRONSON-When the fall
season comes it has become
a rite of passage in Bronson
and this year's edition of
the recreational league's fall
festival built on its past.
"A lot of kids came back
this year," Iaren Brower,
the league's secretary said.
"The team ratio is much
better. Something like the
recreational league can't
exist without the support of
the community and we have
always gotten it. That support
has been really important to
the league and the fall festival
getting bigger and bigger
every year. We keep trying to
make it better and better and
I think we have done that.
This year's festival was the
biggest yet. Everyone had a
good time and the kids really
got to have some fun."
Held at the Bronson Youth
League park off U.S. 27,
the festival had its biggest
turnout yet as every kind of
activity was on display. At
the center of the activities
were the trick or treat
festivities around the walking
track. It was highlighted
by officer Rhodes' trunk of


treats. The kids took home a
various assortment of candy,
prizes and toys. The league's
cheerleaders also used the
track for their fun walk after
signing pledge amounts in
the previous weeks.
Sticking with the
Halloween theme, the league
also featured their annual
costume and cake contests.
Some of the newer activities
were a water relay using
the local fire department's
hoses and a bouncing castle
donated by Moonwalk
Express. The object of the
relay was to shoot the water
as far as possible across the
gym floor. A bulldozer with
the American Flag and a
figure eight bus were some of
the new sights to see as well.
Jerry Cummings donated the
bulldozer.
If that wasn't enough for
the participants, the festival
included a petting zoo, a
treasure hunt, football toss
and pony rides. On Nov. 4
the board member who raises
the most money will kiss
its centerpiece potbelly pig,
Chubby.
The league also raised
money with several raffles.
Winnings included items

tival.


donated by local companies
such as Williston Sports as
well as several gift certificates
from local grocery stores
and restaurants. Hunting
equipment was also offered
for the raffle winners.


All of the teams had
booths as well as several
parents. Together the
festival had over 20 different
booths where games could
be played, food could be
sampled and specialty items


could be purchased. Among
those booths was Tommy
and Joleen Lemay's fish fry
dishes. Lemay is a fisherman
by trade and left no doubt as
to his skill and ability.
The Lemays have a 13-


year-old daughter who
participates in the league.
"I have been involved
with the festival a very long
time, close to 10 years, and
we look forward to it every
year," Tommy Lemay said.
"It has become a part of the
youth league and is a benefit
to the league. Every year it
has been a success and is an
important part of helping
the league grow. This year
though we had some new
things and there was more
things to do. As a parent the
league is one of the things we
need to have and the festival
really helps with that goal in
mind. It prepares kids for
life and keeps them out of
trouble."
The festival raised about
$1,500 for the league and its
immediate use will be for a
cheerleading competition on
Nov. 18 at St. Augustine and
purchasing new equipment
for the players.
The fall youth league
consists of two football
teams, two, cheerleading
teams and eight soccer teams.
The spring youth league has
a softball and baseball team.
The league also runs an all-
adult softball league that runs
year round.


Eagles end season with loss; looking to next season


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
BRONSON -Needing a victory to qualify for the playoffs,
the Hawthorne Hornets exploded for 33 points in the second
half as they beat the Bronson Eagles 41-0.
The Eagles ran out of gas in the third period as their
inexperience and injuries caught up to them. The Hornets'
eight-yard touchdown run was the only score
of the first half as the Eagles trailed by a score
of 8-0 at the intermission. However, the
Hornets put the game out of reach in the third
quarter as they scored three" touchdowns on
their first three possessions of the second half.
The scores came off of Eagle turnovers deep in
their own territory. Hawthorne also recovered

"We played well and gave them a game
for the first two and half quarters, but then
their older kids took over," head coach Greg
Brochetti said.
"I think we put a scare into them, but they just got the best
of us in the second half and when we gave them the ball, they
took advantage. They are going to the playoffs for a reason
and we are still learning to walk before we run. We moved the
ball some during the first half and it was closer than the final
score indicates. So, I think we can take something out of the
game and use it going into next year."
Even though the Eagles final record was a disappointing
1-9, Brochetti, the coaches and the players should be a much
improved squad next year. Besides ending the season by

putting a scare into the playoff bound Hornets for over a half,
they will return 25 lettermen next year.
With no seniors in next year's lineup, the Eagles will have
a roster filled with players with at least one year of experience
and the always important advantage of a majority of players
who are not seniors.. The roster will be made up of five seniors,
15 juniors and six sophomores next season.
The Eagles made tremendous improvements in
learning the fundamentals this year and it showed
against Hawthorne.
With that improvement the team will be able
to spend more time next season focusing on'
the more detail oriented tasks of schemes and
formations.
S "I am proud of what the kids did this ye&t?''
Brochetti said. "They hung in there, kept trying
and had enthusiasm. We had only three players
this year with any type of varsity experience.
We lost William Harris and Mark Smith for the
season and another player moved to Gainesville,
it is always tough when those types of things happened.

"Even though it was a tough year that will change next
season. We will have a lot of players with a lot of experience.
The offensive line learned to block this year and that is
essential to a team. The team was making blocks when they
were supposed to, the ruining backs were doing a good job
and the defense learned to tackle when the season ended.
They were doing those things against Hawthorne for the first
two and a half periods."

Treefzer aims for, wins



Rhino shooting event


This week's Friday night

under the lights


Game of the Week
Newberry (6-3) vs. Wil-
,liston (6-3)
S:2005 score: Williston 16
-Newberry 15
I; Overview: This is a
fmatch-up between two teams
-,who have had similar sea-
isons. Both teams claimed
the runner up spot in their
District and the playoff berth
that goes with it last week.
iNewberry claimed the play-
soff berth by defeating P.K.
IYonge. While Williston had
ithe opportunity to claim their
district crown, but had to set-
.tle for the runner up spot after
losing to North Marion. This
:is:a game where there is noth-
Sing at stake as far as the play-
;offs is concerned, but this is a
.contest coach's love to win in
-order to enter the post season
(with momentum and on a pos-
itive note as well as work out
any tweaks. These two teams
are as evenly matched as two
squads can be as last year's
one point game proved. Los-
ing very few players between
the two teams, look for the
same in this year's contest.
Williston update: Comn-
ing into the game after losing
the big showdown to North
Marion and the district title,
Williston could use this game
to regain the momentum they
had built throughout the first
eight games of the season.
Williston committed just


about every mistake a team
can make in the loss to North
Marion and they need to re-
member how to play with a
minimal amount of miscues
in the playoffs. With. one
game left this is the Red Dev-
ils last opportunity to get this
season long monkey off their
back.
Coach speak: "There is a
big difference between enter-
ing the post season 7-3 and 6-
4, Baker said. "With that dif-
ference and homecoming, the
kidsare motivated and they
are very positive about get-
ting onto the business of pre-
paring for Newberry after the
loss. They take a lot of pride
in the school and the commu-
nity they come from. I think
if we eliminate the mistakes
and turnovers we can do some
of the same things this week
we did against North Marion.
But I don't know what caused
the turnovers against North
Marion.
What to look for: The
Red Devils offense has been
productive throughout the
2006 season, but they outdid
themselves in.gaining a total
470 yards against North Mar-
ion. Of course it has been
well-documented turnovers
and every type of miscue a
team can commit was the
reason they lost to the Colts.
The attack was also the game
in which the offense was at


its most balanced. Willis-
ton gained 256 yards on the
ground and 214 through the
air. As coach Baker alluded
to, the passing attack is effi-
cient enough to keep defenses
off balance and gain big yards
in one fell swoop. Add to that
the Reds Devil's defense's
ability to use their speed to
shut down opponents' of-
fenses and create chaos and
there isn't much surprise to
what the Red Devils will do.
When the Red Devils avoid
the turnover jinx, they ex-
ecute extremely well and the
yardage total against North
Marion is the most significant
proof of this phenomenon. If
they can manage the kind of
yards they did against a pe-
rennial state champion con-
tender they should be able to
continue to' do the same this
week.
Newberry comes into the
game coming off their big-
gest win of the season against
P.K. Yonge, in which the vic-
tory secured a playoff berth.
Their running back, who dou-
bles up on return teams, is big
and strong. The defense will
have to shut him down if they
are to win. If they cannot
shut him down, it will be hard
for the defense to get into a
rhythm and score. Playing in
front of a homecoming crowd
should fire up an already mo-
tivated Red Devil squad.

Shooting a total of 93 in the afternoon ses-
sion, Thomas Treefzer took the overall high
score last Saturday
at the Sporting Clays
Event in Williston. He
bested Van Drake's af-
ternoon score by three
points as well as his
and: James Brower's
high scores from the
morning session.
Associated with the
Rhino Gun Cases com-
pany located off of U.S.
27 the tournament was
successful and it lived
up to its unofficial
moniker of the ultimate
simulation of bird hunt-
ing.
It offered eight clas-
sifications in its morn-
ing session and nine
in the afternoon for its
shooters. The course
consisted of 100 tar-
gets among 14 stations.
Each target accounted for one point making
for a possible total of 100 markers
"It went fairly well," Joe Morales, president
and chief operating officer of Rhino Gun Cas-
es, said. "It is still a fairly new sport to the area
and events like the one we had Saturday will
certainly help with the community becoming
more familiar with it: We had shooters come
from all over the state and we even had some
from Georgia and the other southern states. A
lot of people enjoy the sport who don't shoot
and we had a lot of them come to the tourna-
ment. It has something for everybody to enjoy
and I think everybody who came found some-
thing. There were even competitors between
the ages of 12 and 16 years old."
The tournament continued its growth as 65
competitors vied Tor the top spot. The num-


ber of competitors is its largest to date. It
also continued to boast of making a case for
the sport producing family events as several
couples competed together as well as a large
number of children
Sr-", and parents.
I l Treefzer compiled
85 points in the mom-
'ing session. Billy
Henley with a score of
\ 87 in the p.m. session
was the other shooter
with a score over 85.
Anna Marie Collins
was the best of the la-
dies as she shot an 82
in her afternoon ses-
sion. Overall there
were 17 scores of 80
or better.
A portion of the
money raised from the
tournament is used for
local charities such as
the Tri-county Preg-
nancy Center, the
Boy Scouts, the local
cheerleading organi-
zation and the Future
Farmers of America.
It is also on outlet for Williston High
School's Reserve Officers Training Corps to
earn the money they need. The money they
earn from working at the tournament is used
for a variety of projects and events. How-
ever, their biggest need every year is to be
able to fund their end of the year banquet,
Morale is pleased with the fact that by
having the ROTC work the tournament they
serve as a role model for the younger chil-
dren in the area and a clean orderly group
who efficiently does their job always makes
this kind of event easier to stage.
The next Pigeon Clay Event in Williston
will be held on Saturday, Dec. 9. For more
information call the Rhino Gun Cases Com-
pany at 1-800-226-3613.

He was known publicly for his victory cigars, his gravely
voice and his cajoling ofrefs when he coached and then
other general managers to get what he wanted. Private sto-
ries of a man who dealt with positive outcomes as well as
Adversity in unique and unordinary ways have come to the
forefront since the news of his passing broke. He was not
only loved in Boston as the wise and venerable grandfather
who built championship team after championship team. He
was loved throughout the NBA and the sports world. He
Iwas looked upon as a tour de force, a personality of a winner
and an icon who pioneered the NBA into what it is today.
:Yet in order to obtain that status he did unpopular things
that were peculiar at the time. For example he started the
-first African -American in NBA history as well as the first all
African -American starting lineup in NBA history and hired
tthe first African- American coach. These were not popular
decisions and required a streak of stubbornness at the time.
t Despite this, Auerbach's reputation and the perception of the
man was never tarnished. He was Teflon in taking what was
then considered huge risks, not only to the success of his
beloved Celtics, but also to his eventual legacy. To further
:illustrate how his ability to follow the road less traveled,
[consider he was the man who drafted player named Larry
iBird at a time when the rest of the league's general managers
had questions about the Indiana native and he assembled a
team that was playing ball as if it was still 1960 in the '80s.
Auerbach by all accounts was cantankerous, stubborn,
rough around the edges and needed some serious polishing.
These are the traits that society sees as a recipe for disas-
ter Yet these traits were at the very core of a man's success
:in his chosen field of administrative basketball leadership
,and the legacy of success he leaves us with. He was differ-
ent, because he perceived life and'his chosen field in ways
uncommon and unusual to the rest of us. In leaving us last
weekend I say, while his legacy of 16 championships and
building the Celtics into the iconoclastic team it is today cer-
tainly should be admired, if there is one thing to take from
ihis life it is the love he had in being different. That love
of being different was done in a way that was not wrapped
up in perceiving life, the situation it presented to him and
resolving issues by unusual means for the sake of being no-
ticed, but by the simple fact it was who he was and his per-
sonality was his calling card. Funny that for a society that
values doing things different as strange and odd we now are
heaping praise upon a man whose very life defined what we
look upon as negative.
And with that said, I think the next time the society in
"which we live decides to get upon its high horse when judg-
ing people, because they don't fit into our perceptions of
what people should or shouldn't be there is the example of
Auerbach's life. To me Auerbach's life will be one that I

year program, they certainly
felt like they were on a mis-
sion and played with that
fervor. They saw an opportu-
nity to end a four game losing
streak and refresh a game that
had fallen off track at the ex-
pense of the Indians. The first
year team left the field one
step closer to accomplishing
their season long goal of fin-
ishing at .500.
While Chiefland showed
signs that they have the tal-
ent and persona to cobble to-
gether a few victories against
.500 teams such as Yulee,
they also made it clear if
they continue to turn over the
ball and fail to stop their op-
ponents' big name they will
have a'difficult time winning
future games.

The Hornets broke out to
a 20-0 halftime lead as the
Indians turned the ball over
three times in the first half.
The Indians' turnovers con-
siderably derailed their own
prospects of a victory as they
ended critical drives.
Both of the interceptions
found their way into the
hands of the Hornets' Spencer
Soward after the Indians had
marched into their oppoents'
territory. While both/drives
ended in an interception, they
also followed Yulee scores.
The Indians turned the ball
over a total of four times.
Deonte Davis scored on
an 84-yard run in the third.
Zac Tyson then brought the
Indians within a score of the
Hornets on a 9-yard touch-
down run late in the quar-
ter. However, Yulee tailback
Brett Davis ended the rally
when he galloped 45 yards
into the end zone as the Hor-
nets overloaded the right side
of the line.
Chiefland's other signifi-
cant problem that derailed
its prospects of victory was
its inability to stop Davis.
In surprising the 1000-yard


mark for the season, Davis
and the offensive line chewed
up yardage and valuable time
after Soward's interceptions.
The running back accumu-
lated 129 yards and three
touchdowns on the ground,
while carrying the pigskin 20
times.
"We just basically grinded


it out," Nelson said. "We had
the 45-yard run and a couple
of reverses where Chiefland
over pursued, but other than
that, it was mostly three yards
and a cloud of dust. I think
their lack of depth had some-
thing to do with it. And of
course, the turnovers played
a role, because they came at


key moments in the game.
We didn't have any, which ig
a change. That was also big
in the outcome."
The Indians fell to 1-8 on
the season aiid will play non-
district foe Trenton tomorrow
at home in their season finale.
Yulee upped its record to 4-
5.

Clams will get research funding


The University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences has recently received notification of funding
from the U.S. Department of AgriCulture, Cooperative State
Research, Education, and Extension Service, that will support
applied research efforts for Florida's clam aquaculture indus-
try. The UF Shellfish Aquaculture Extension Program will
receive about $277,000 for the Florida .Shellfish Aquaculture
Development Program. These federal funds were procured
during the FY 2006 congressional session through the efforts
of U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite. "While Florida has made
remarkable advancements in clam and shellfish aquaculture,
increased investment is needed to maintain water quality and
management, global competitiveness and food technologies,"
said Rep. Brown-Waite. "Florida's shellfish industry creates
thousands of jobs .for our agriculture and fishing industries,
and I am proud to support federal efforts to fund this impor-
.tant program."
' A steering committee made up of clam growers from the
Cedar Key Aquaculture Association, university research
and extension faculty, and representatives from the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division
of Aquaculture have helped to direct the efforts of this new
program to ensure funded projects are industry-driven. Proj-
ects to be conducted during 2006-8 bring together researchers
from the UF Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences,
UF Soil and Water Science Department, and Harbor Branch
Oceanographic Institution.
This team will begin to investigate the utilization of clam
hybridization for increasing survival and production. "The
need for a hardier clam strain has become evident as clam
growers in Florida report below average survivals or total
losses during the hot summer months," said Mike Hodges,
chair of the Cedar Key Aquaculture Association. Families
of hard clams, southern quahog clams, and their reciprocal
hybrids will be produced, grown and evaluated under com-
mercial conditions. Laboratory experimental challenges will-
examine the combined effects of temperature and salinity on
survivorship of these stocks using natural ranges found in
Florida. In addition, soil properties of clam lease areas will be
considered using a soils-based approach to establish relation-
ships between soil characteristics and clam productivity.
Leslie Sturmer, the statewide shellfish aquaculture exten-
sion agent, will administer this program with the guidance of
the steering committee. "The Florida Shellfish Aquaculture
Development Program presents an opportunity for the Uni-

It's no toss-up; Roma Pizza serves tasty treats


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
SSTAFF WRITER
Pizza made its debut in
Americanin-a littlee New York
City pizzeria in 1905, but it
didn't reach vieespread ac-
ceptance until after World
War II.
War veteran soldiers
brought home an appetite for
the savory pies. Now pizza
is well known and loved by,
many, from toddler to senior.
Those who crave the tasty
dish today will be well satis-
fied by the fare found at Roma
Pizza in Bronson.
The pizzeria, a Bronson
institution for years, has
recently changed owner-
ship. Leslie Carbia and Dan
Fansler of Williston bought
the restaurant three months
ago. Fansler is no neophyte
pizza chef. "Dan has always
. been known for his great piz-
zas," Carbia said.
Fansler added, "That was
before I lost my amateur sta-
tus. Friends used to request
that I make my pizza for
parties." His pizzas were in
high demand, and continue to
be with Roma Pizza's loyal
customer base. "When cus-
tomers saw us working with
former owners Kyle and Tom
Bonaccorso, they got a little


worried and asked if the qual-
ity would remain."
The couple has kept ex-
istiig customers de:i' to
,-anl ,-octing sti .O
"The dough is hand-tossed,"
he said, "and all the ingredi-
ents are absolutely fresh and
cut for each pizza." His sauce
is homemade.
Besides pizza by the whole,
by the slice, or as bread sticks,
the restaurant offers calzone,
sub sandwiches, salads, pasta
dishes, and wings. Demand
for their dishes does create
occasional parking problems.
"We're located pretty close
to the road, but we do have
parking out back," Carbia
said.
Local celebs who frequent-
ly enjoy the pizza .include
the Bronson Eagles' football
team. "They often show up
to eat before a game," Carbia
said.
Roma is open Tuesday
through Thursday from 11
a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from
11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sun-
days from 1 p.m. to 6:30.
They're closed Saturdays and
Monday.
Their Saturday closure al-
lows the couple to pursue
another shared passion. Their
love of music has resulted in

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.

No -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.

Chiefland's on the grow -


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
New businesses are sprouting up throughout
the county as activities last week demonstrated.
Chiefland chamber of commerce members
welcomed three Friday with ribbon cuttings
at B & E Woodstoves, Enchanted Landscapes
and Hogan Brothers Welding.
B & E Woodstoves has come to town just
in time to help customers stay warm during
cool fall weather. They carry porcelain-coated
woodstoves, fireplace inserts and accessories.
Enchanted Landscapes has been in town
about half a year. Their professionals provide
custom design, irrigation and landscape
installations.


Hogan Brothers Welding is AWS certified
for mig, tig and aluminum and metal
fabrications, and propeller repair. And if
you need work performed on your golf cart,
they provide tires, rims and parts and service
on all makes and models. They also offer
custom carts.
Community members also turned out to
see the new digs for Heartland Rehabilitation
Services. Their new offices are in the

Annexation passes with close vote


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
CHIEFLAND-Chiefland has
stretched its seams and will soon find
itself a size larger. Voters approved an'
annexation measure by the narrowest
of leads in mail-in ballots due in to the
supervisor of elections Oct. 30.
Only registered voters who lived
within the proposed annexation area
could vote. Out of the 29 eligible
voters, 11 responded.
Six of those cast a yes vote, and
five opposed. The annexation will


take effect after the Nov. 9 city commission
meeting. The annexed area runs along both
sides of U.S. Hwy 19 -with Strickland Park
at its southern edge and the White property
outside the northern boundary. The city will
gain approximately 953 acres.
The annexation had received considerable
public debate over an ordinance that would limit
two package stores' ability to sell alcohol.
'After Nov. 9, both Smoke and Spirits and
Chieflahd Package Store will fall within city
limits, meaning they will no longer be allowed
to sell alcohol on Sundays.

Is home ownership right for you?
As you think about your goals for the coming year, is purchasing a home part of your plan?
If so, are you ready to take on the responsibilities of being a home owner? Millions of Ameri-
,. cans already enjoy the pride and benefits that go along with purchasing and owning a home.
During the largest financial transaction of a consumer's life, the Florida Association of Mort-
gage Brokers (FAMB) offer tips to consider the advantages of buying a home versus renting.
First ask yourself these questions before deciding if buying or renting is right for your life-
Sstyle
,.. Do you plan on remaining in the city, town or general locality where you are presently
Reside?
,: Are you thinking about moving? If yes, how soon?
S Are you employed and able to confirm your income?
Is your income sufficient to handle a mortgage payment?
Have you analyzed whether owning a property might cost less than the rent you are
: paying?
S Are you able to take care of the repairs and improvements that owning a house re-
,.quires?
SAdvantages of Buying a Home:
Monthly mortgage payments increase home equity, which is often the base from which
*?you build your financial future.
Homes typically appreciate in value.
Potential tax deductions. (Interest paid to the lender and real estate taxes are tax
Deductiblee)
Your family has a place to grow and put down roots.
Homeownership offers greater safety and security for your family.
Owning your first home often leads to a bigger home in the future.
S It is your home and you have the freedom to do as you choose.
d t If you remain in your home for the term of your loan, the property will become free of
!: debt.
SDisadvantages of Buying a Home:
Renting may cost less than buying
S* You, not the landlord, must do the maintenance and repairs.
; Payments must be consistently paidon time; otherwise your lender could foreclose
on the property.
S If foreclosure is completed, you risk losing the money you put into house.
You are unable to move easily. Often you cannot sell your home quickly.

Sakowski named Outstanding CDE student

Two-year employee at Scoggins Chevrolet


Heather Sakowski, a
student at Chiefland High
School, was recognized as
outstanding Cooperative
Diversified Education Student
on Oct. 25.
Sakowski, a second year
student, and her employer,
Scoggins Chevrolet-Buick,
Inc. received certificates
from CDE Coordinator, Eli
Beasley and Chiefland High
School Principal Pamela
Asbell.
Sakowski's CDE program
started with her interest


in working in the family
business that was founded
by her grandfather, Norman
Scoggins. Sakowski works
under the supervision of her
mother, Teresa (Scoggins)
Sakowski and has learned
many procedures in the
business office.
She has performed many
tasks including the operation
of numerous pieces of
office equipment, including
computerdata. Oneimportant
task. is customer service
that includes answering the


phone, copying and filing and
cashier for the parts, service,
body shop and the sales
departments.
She has learned to process
receipts, purchase orders and
credit card authorizations.
Along with the many general
tasks performed, she has
also become proficient
in the company's "in-
house" accounting system.
Throughout her work-
education experience, she has
strived to develop customer

to be distributed to a wider recipient base, and that another
area hospital would not be in the best interest of his or other
local hospitals.
Levy County Commissioner Lilly Rooks directly addressed
Bird's opening comments. "I beg to differ with the 80 percent
rule."
She sqai when hr husband needed to be hospitalized re-
cently, "he was kept in the hallway because there were no
available rooms." She added that every service call for Levy
County ambulances required a three-hour turnaround time,
and that there were many times that the county needed back
up from Dixie or Gilchrist. She concluded, "It is important to
get a hospital to this area. We're talking about people's lives
here."
Dixie County Commissioner Buddy Lamb received a stand-


passed down from three
generations in the family
owned business.
The high school
Cooperative Diversified
Education (CDE) program
is an academic program
that combines a classroom
curriculum with work
experience in the business
community. CDE gives
students an opportunity
to gain professional job
experience related to a
career goal. The Florida
Department of Education has
provided a way for schools
to offer students a variety of
CDE programs. Chiefland
High School provides Career
and Technical Education
courses in Agriscience and
Natural Resources, Business
Technology, Health Science
and Public Service.
Currently 36 students at
Chiefland High School are
involvedin CDE. The students
are working in agriculture,
business, mechanics, food
services, construction, sales
and taxidermy.
CDE Coordinator
Eli Beasley says, "It is
the employers that are
responsible for providing
the work site, supervision
of the student-trainee and
providing the students with
skills necessary to succeed
in the work world. They
also pay salaries to the CDE
students and I want to thank
them for their involvement in
the program."

Heard from interim city manager Matt Brock that the
sinkhole behind Chiefland Farm Supply has been filled in and
is now ready for paving.
Accepted Lula Gillespie's lease price of $2,824 for
sludge disposal.
Heard from fire chief Dave Burett that the fire ser-
vice contract is being updated.
Heard from Robert Wells, who spoke about the group,

nity...I'll defend it as long as I need to. This is not a financial
thing...the people have a right to good health care."
One woman attending the hearing spoke poignantly and
personally: "I resent the fact that the gentleman from Willis-
ton tells us we don't need a hospital-that's why I'm a widow
today." '
Several other officials from Chiefland and Levy County
were among those in attendance, as was Frank Schupp, rep-
resenting Ameris Health Systems. This is Ameris' second at-
tempt to build a hospital in Chiefland. Its first request was
denied'by the state. The state's decision to approve or reject
the currertt application is due Dec. 15.
