CHIEFLAND-Two days
after holding up Chiefland's
Capital City Bank on Dec.
26 and taking an undisclosed
amount of money, two
suspects, both from Chiefland,
were taken into custody.
A lone white male appeared
at the bank around 4:30 p.m.
and passed a bank teller a
note demanding money. No
weapon was displayed. After
the teller complied with the
request, the robber fled on
foot.
Although the Chiefland
Police Department responded
with a K-9 unit and Levy
County deputies set up a line


School board

changes policies

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
BRONSON-Assistant
superintendent Jeff Davis
conducted a public hearing
on changes to school board
policies. Six changes were
presented:
Charter school policy
changes. Applications charter
schools must submit to the
board are .now due between
July 15 and Aug. 1. This
represents a change from the
previous application period
of Aug. 15 to Sept. 1. The
change was made to comply
with Florida statutes.
Transfer credits.
Students transferring in to
Levy County schools will now
have credits earned validated
by their first nine weeks'
performance at the new
school. This rule was changed
due to a corresponding
change in state school board
rules. The leading factor in
the change was to address
performance of students who
had previously been home
schooled.
Disposal of surplus
textbooks and other
instructional materials. The
change was made to correctly

around the bank, no
suspect was immediately
apprehended. Police sent a
description of the suspect
to law enforcement agencies
throughout Florida.


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
As the state's baby boomers age, the need for
independent living increases. A group dedicated to
offering the outside world to the disabled is now
seeking help from civic groups, churches, govern-
ments and individuals to make that goal a reality.
Mary Lee Tanca asked the board of county com-
missioners Tuesday for its support and help getting
the word out that the Center for Independent Living
(CIL) needs help.
The agency serves citizens in Columbia, Levy,
Putnam and Suwannee counties and bills itself as a
neighbor helping neighbor unit.
Contractors to design and oversee ramp con-
struction are needed, as well as carpenters, lunch
providers and those willing to nail a nail-even if
they aren't professionally trained are needed.
Tanca said the agency doesn't want to financially
handicap any one group, so it is asking for small
quarterly donations to help fund the cost of materi-
als.


.. Marianna

contacted
Chie fland
police two
days later.
They had
picked up
Y --two suspects,
S. one of whom
tv-- matched the
description,
on unrelated
t Huffman Jr. drug charges.
Chief
Robert
Douglas and Lieutenant
Jimmy Anderson interviewed
them in Marianna. Both
confessed after being advised
of their constitutional rights.


Additionally, they will call on local lhunber yards
and hardware stores for material donations to lessen
the cost of each project.
A ramp, built to code, cost around $300, Tanca
said and one can be built easily in one day. .
"Funds raised in Levy County will stay in Levy
County," she said.
Currently there are 10 people on the waiting list
for ramps in the county, she added, and one of those
will come to pass Feb. 3 as the CIL concludes its
"Six days, six ramps" project. Material is available
but a volunteer contractor and about 15 workers are
still needed.
Anyone interested in helping with this ongoing
project may call Tanca at 352-231-2766 or 1-800-
265-5724.
In other business, Marie Daldine asked the com-
missioners enforce the noise ordinance and to levy
stiffer penalties on those violating it.
Daldine complained of loud cars and all-terrain
vehicles. She was advised the sheriff's department is
responsible for enforcing the ordinance.


A portion of the stolen money
was recovered.
Robert Hayden Huffinan
Jr. and Daniel Clint Huffman,
both of Chiefland, were
arrested on charges of robbery
and grand theft.
According to a bank
employee who asked not to
be identified, both the bank
lobby and drive-in tellers
were closed after the robbery
due to the normal closing hour
schedule. The bank reopened
the day after the robbery as
usual.
Although customers were in
the lobby during the robbery,
the process unfolded smoothly.
Only the teller involved knew
what was going on.


"All our bank employees
are doing fine. We didn't
have any trauma. We're
trained for this type of
thing," the banker said. "We
are regularly reminded,
especially during .the holiday
season, to be on high alert
for this sort of thing."
The banker added that
customer funds, would not
be affected by the robbery.
"The bank itself will absorb
the loss. It's just a part of
doing business. The loss
goes against the bank's
income for the year. It is
the bank's own bottom line,
not our customer's, which is
affected."


Daldine said ordinances were not updated
and law enforcement could not do more than
they are. She was again told that if the sher-
iff feels there is something wrong with the
ordinances on the books, he needs to consult
with the commission and they would then be
reviewed.

In other action:
Rick Bloom of the Levy County Volunteer
Fire Department was given permission to pur-
chase a chassis for a fire truck. This will serve
the Montbrook-Morriston area.,
A special exception was granted for a full-
time wood shaving business on 14.49 acres.
Derby Gold Pine Shaving has been opera-
tional in an enclosed facility for five years and
now wants to expand.
Elected Sammy Yearty as the commission
chairman and Lilly Rooks as the vice chair-
man. Commissioner Nancy Bell was absent
from the meeting.

memorate the importance of
the early lumbering industry
to the development of Cedar
Key, Levy County and indeed
to North Florida during the
1800s and early 1900s. The
industry was largely respon-
sible for the Florida Railroad
Being built from Fernandina
to Cedar Key in 1861 provid-
ing access and transportation
to north-central part of the
state.
The marker will be placed
on the property of the Far-
away Inn at the corner of 3rd
and G streets adjacent to the
site of the Eagle Pencil Com-
pany's cedar slat mill which


operated there from 1876 un-
til 1896.

the Fenimore Saw and Plan-
ing Mill on Way(Cedar) Key
and Faber Pencil Company's
cedar and the Suwannee
Lumber Company's pine mill
on Atsena Otie during the
mid and late 1800s. There
was also a large sawmill at
Lukens on the mainland and
the Cummer Lumber Compa-
ny's Cypress mill at Sumner.
The Standard Manufac-
turing Company's Fiber and
Brush Factory produced fiber
and brushes from cabbage
palms on the old Fenimore
mill site on Way (Cedar) Key
from 1910 until 1952.
There will be speakers

what awaited them but their
pioneer spirit brought them
to this place and the family
made it their home.
Collins is best known for

We know we have food in the South that doesn't grow in the

Lunch was so good with rice, beans, okra, beets, lots of

There's no excuse for trash-lined roads


To the editor:
I have lived in Gainesville/Cedar Key/
Chiefland for the past 11 years and never seen
the state of Levy County roads reach their
present foul status.
Driving down 347 between Chiefland
and Shell Mound I counted over 750 articles
of debris! There were myriad plastic bags,
countless soda cans and a wide array of
assorted trash. (It's getting worse on 320 and
345, too.) Have the winds blown garbage off
trucks lately? If not, the following strategies
might work to alter this depressing situation:
1. Make sure that if the grass is cutback,
debris is removed.
2. Utilize prison inmates to do weekly
clean ups.
3. Mobilize church and community clean
up campaigns.
4. Educate the public as per littering.


5. Sponsor a school poster contest
that champions litter free roadways so
children understand the aesthetic and
moral benefits of this approach.
6. Enforce strict fines.
It's possible that some see in nature's
pristine idyllic state "God forsaken"
lands waiting to be trashed. It's time they
realized that these grounds are our back
yards. Indigenous people believed the way
the land is treated responds in kind. As we
look to our faltering water table, Manatee
Springs at a perilously low level, perhaps
in showing Mother Nature some respect,
she will respond with the rain this country
sorely needs. It's been said that man is the
only beast that fouls his own nest. Driving
the scenic local roadways provides
evidence to that inexcusable clause.

Let your voice be heard on hospital issue


To the editor:
My profound anticipation the last several years
regarding the plans for the Tri-County Hospital
reverted to great sadness as our illustrious
Florida Agency for Health Care Administration
(FAHCA) denied the Certificate of Need (CON)
to Ameris Health Systems to build the Tri-
County Hospital in Chiefland.
The decision of the FAHCA does not affect
just Levy County, and they appear to be ignoring
the impact their decision would have on two
other counties involved in the proposed Tri-
County Hospital Dixie and Gilchrist which,
along with Levy County, make up our wonderful
"Tri-County Area." ,
Our Tri-County Area is recognized as such
throughout the state of Florida. In fact, two
publications come to mind when I reflect on
the Tri-County Area (which recognizes Dixie,
Gilchrist, and Levy as the Tri-County Area)
- 2007 Bell South The Real Yellow Pages Tri-
County Area which encompasses the cities,
towns, and communities of Bronson, Cedar
Key, Chiefland, Cross City, Steinhatchee, Old
Town, Suwannee, Trenton, and Williston. The
other Tri-County Area publication is the Town
& Country GUIDE for Gilchrist, Levy & Dixie
Counties. This publication is a valued asset to
the Tri-County Area, published quarterly through
Our Hometown Publishing, LLC, and a vehicle
utilized by Tri-County advertisers.
It is time for the citizens of the beautiful Tri-
County Area to rise to the next level and let
our voices be heard. The FAHCA's comment
that the "need for the proposed project is
not demonstrated" is just not true. Though
I do not portend to extol the knowledge of a
statistician or demographer, I do know from
experience and research that there are instances
where an anomaly can occur and I believe
this circumstance to be just that an anomaly,
as our Tri-County Area God's country is
growing. Not being privy to the score card used
by FAHCA in their decision making, it does not
make sense that out of five criteria mentioned
in journalist, Karen Voyles', article (The
Gainesville Sun, Dec. 16, 2006) only one was
lacking the "anibmaly" that "the three counties
the hospital was targeted to serve Levy, Dixie
and Gilchrist are not projected to grow as fast
as the rest of the state or region." Chiefland
is in Levy County, and yes, there is a hospital
in Williston. However, this is not just about
Chiefland or Williston, but about all citizens of
Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy County the same
citizens who patronize our businesses and who
have overwhelmingly expressed their desire for a
hospital in the Tri-County Area.
My husband and I have been blessed to have
lived in Levy County for 20 years and are
employed in the education sector. We have
four sons two who have graduated from Levy
County schools and two more coming through
the ranks. They have played sports and yes,
they have been injured which has required
many trips to Gainesville. Though good-spirited
rivalry does exist within our Tri-County Area


when it comes to sporting events, I
believe I can speak for everyone that
we become as one when it comes to the
health and well-being of our citizens
- from the very young to the elderly.
My sister has served as an
occupational therapist in the Tri-
County Area for more than 15 years,
having worked in two of the three
school ,districts as well as the following
health care facilities Cross City
Rehabilitation and Health Center, Tri-
County Nursing Home, Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation Center, and Williston
Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The
residents of these facilities are usually
transferred to hospitals in Gainesville
(with the exception of some residents in
Williston) for medical care beyond the
capability of their nursing home/center.
The granting of a CON to build the
Tri-County Hospital.would alleviate
the emotional and physical stress our
nursing home population must endure
when they are forced to travel extended
distances for their medical care.
Furthermore, it would be to the greater
good for family members and friends
who know the importance of frequent
visitation. Many wish to visit daily
but find they are restricted due to their
own age and limitations. There truly is
no greater therapy than to have family
members and friends involved in the
recovery and treatment process. Is there
any one in the Tri-County Area who
can say they and their family have not
been touched by the emotional distress
of having a sick,., injured, or maimed
loved one, and trying to get them to the
hospital as quickly as possible? I think
not.
Fellow citizens we must be ready,
in season and out of season for what
life bestows on us. We must count the
cost, plan ahead, and begin laying a
solid foundation upon which to build
for the future of our children. We must
insure that the infrastructure of our
county is solid and strong. Failure to
do so will leave our Tri-County Area
open to chaos. As the past has revealed
and the present has shown, the planning
process is a long one, and we must
be ready. Let us not fail to remember
the recent announcement of Progress
Energy Florida who is moving forward
with their plans for a nuclear plant in
Levy County. Would it not be a good
idea to be ready for that event though
10 years down the road to prepare
for the influx of residents should this
initiative move forward? It appears
Progress Energy has established their
short and long term plan (Reference The

All gone-a president, a


dictator and a king-of sorts


'm a news hound.
One of my favorite
pastimes, when I'm
not out covering
news, is to watch the news
on TV. I surf all the news
channels, from CNN to CBS,
FSTV to C-Span. Even Fox.
Last Friday was one of
those must-watch days.
Journalists covered the
passing of three major
figures all at once. It was
strange to see clips from
three entirely different lives
melting into each other like
fresh snow melting into soil.
On the one hand there was
Betty Ford and her children
waiting the arrival of her
husband's and their father's
casket at the elder Fords'
church in Rancho Mirage.
Interspersed withimage ...
of a wife and grown children
all in black, and all the
pomp and circumstance the
military could muster, were
frequent clips from Baghdad.
Reporters had received word
that Saddam Hussein was
expected to be sent to the
gallows. Possibly before the
day was out.
Wrapped up in all that
were tributes to the godfather
of rock and roll.
Three men larger than life,
all dead within a few days,
all grabbing a lion's share of
media attention.
Such a juxtaposition led
me to think of eternity. I
saw in my mind's eye an
ethereal golden gate guarded
by a silent and knowing
archangel.
I thought about the hoards
of mere mortals standing and
waiting their disposition.
I wondered-were Gerald
Ford, James Brown and
Saddam Hussein all standing
in there, waiting their
judgment too? Were they
aware of one another? Did
they chat while they waited?
It is said that Nashville
is kind to the dead but
hard on the living. The
same can be said of
Washington. Of presidents
who pass, reporters are


respectful, emphasizing
accomplishments over
failures.
After hearing of the
good done by Ford, the
quintessential Everyman of
American politics, and of the
immeasurable mark left by
Brown on the music world,
I wanted to hear some good
about Hussein. News of his
upcoming execution left me
feeling
empty.
I cried
as the o the tunes of
president's
wife and I wondered what
children-those living-
awaited the -
casket'slievable numbers of
arrival. I ASSId had killeOUNIGAN
smiled as Columnist
ThI recalled
dancing to the tunes ofd
James Brown.
That third death, when its
finally did happen, left me
drained. I wondered what
his children-those livin-re,
were thinking. I wondered
if it all were true-the
unbelievable numbers of
people he had had killed. I
wondered if there was any
good in the man.
Then I heard his younger
daughter had loved him. She
wanted to have hisbody
flown to Jordan, where she
lived rcomin exile. She wanted
to have him buried there,
waiting the day when peace
would return to Iraq and he
could be buried in his ownt
hometown.
We humans are full of
contradictions. So much
good and so much bad in
each of us. So much of
life seems to be about us
trying to develop our own
good habits and traits while
overcoming our bad. I
wonder about those who are
really bad-whether there
is good in them at all, or if
their lives had been different
would they have been able to
maximize their good while
conquering the bad.
I was reared Christian
and then, prompted by


curiosity and a desire for
understanding, studied the
other great faith traditions.
I've read portions from
the Bhagavad Gita and
Qur'an, meditated on the
Buddhist way and watched,
mesmerized, as the Sufis
spun their way to religious
ecstasy. For me, the central
message in all religions is
the command that we love
one another.
If we are to grow as a
society, we must learn to
express our love through the
act of reconciliation.
Reconciliation, or its
apparent lack, was what
prompted the empty feeling
that attached itself to me
after I heard Saddam was
hanged. Was he reconciled
with his maker? Wlphatofhis
children, and the people he
led, those he killed, those he
loved?
The case of Saddam
Hussein is an extreme one.
In a land like America,
governments and people
have not descended to the
level we witness in the
Middle East. Political foes
can become political friends.
We can, and indeed must,
learn to live with and work
with one another.
Gerald Ford did just
that. His was a legacy of
cooperation. He listened and
respected others. Regardless
of color, gender, or party
affiliation.
All of us-Democrats,
Republicans and
Independents- can learn
from him by carrying that
attitude of cooperation,
consideration and
understanding everywhere
we go.
Our everyman would want
us to. Our children's children
need us to.

The Gainesville Sun, Dec. 13, 2006, page 1). As citizens,
it is our obligation to stay dutifully informed of the strategic
plans in our respective counties for the short and long term
future of the Tri-County Area.
That being said, it is time to rally and, gently speaking,
fight back. If the receipt of 5,560 letters and the proven
fiscal soundness of Ameris Health Systems is not enough
for FAHCA, then we have no choice but to take it to
the next level. How many of you remember when we
gathered together that day in November, 2003, when the
Council of 100 held its last public hearing to explore the
feasibility of sending our water flowing to south Florida
to support its extensive growth? Do you remember how
many people packed the Chiefland High School Auditorium
and Gymnasium that evening to express their concern
and voice their opinion? More than 2,500 arrived by cars
and buses that evening from the Tri-County Area as
well as surrounding counties filling the auditorium and
gymnasium to overflowing to express their opinion before
our elected officials. One of our legislators present at this
hearing was State Senator Nancy Argenziano who is a true
advocate of the people and a firm believer in the voice of
her constituents. The outcome? The people spoke, and their
voice was heard in Tallahassee.
Dixie County Commissioner, Buddy Lamb's, statement
paves the way for our next step "When a system put in
place to protect citizens fails them so miserably, it is time to
change the system" (The Gainesville Sun, Dec. 16, 2006).
The Tri-County Area may not have a beautiful performing
arts center, boast a significant tax base to support program
initiatives available to our larger counties, or have the
distinction of being one of the wealthiest counties in Florida,
but we are tax paying citizens of this great state with a right
for our voices to be heard. There is something, however,
that Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy County do have in common
- facilities that are capable of holding large crowds where
our citizenry can meet, e.g., high school football stadiums.
It is time to resurrect the "town hall" meeting for our voices
to be heard and to extend a cordial invitation to the members
of FAHCA, as well as our legislative liaisons.to express our
outrage.
Frankly, without a vision, the people perish. Ameris
Health Systems along with supporters from all walks of
life within our area have had a vision for many years to see
a hospital in the Tri-County Area come to fruition. Many
hours of labor, commitment, and dedication has gone into
this endeavor. On behalf of the citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Levy County, I extend my sincere appreciation to Frank
Schupp, Ameris Health Systems whose tireless efforts
to bring a hospital to the Tri-County Area have not gone
unnoticed. With this, for one moment, our Tri-County
Area must come together (citizens, county commissions,
city commissions, and city leaders) to lend our support and
sacrificially stand behind Ameris Health Systems in their
attempt to appeal the decision of the FAHCA. According
to Mr. Schupp's comment in the Chiefland Citizen, Dec. 21,
2006, the FAHCA's report on the CON will be published
in the Florida Administrative Journal on or about Dec. 29,
2006, at which time Ameris Health Systems will have "a
21-day window of opportunity when Ameris can appeal that


decision."
In closing, I encourage each citizen of the Tri-County
Area In Dixie County Cross City, Horseshoe Beach, Old
Town, Steinhatchee, and Suwannee In Gilchrist County
- Bell, Fanning Springs (also a part of Levy County), and
Trenton In Levy County Cedar Key, Chiefland, Fanning
Springs (also a part of Gilchrist County), Gulf Hammock,
Inglis, Morriston, Otter Creek, Rosewood, Williston, and
Yankeetown to stand up and let your voice be heard.

Vice mayor: "I'm not leaving'
To the editor:
In response to Mr. Mazzuka's letter to the editor Dec. 27,
2006, "Who are we kidding"
Mr. Mazzuka, my campaign for election was neither.,,...,,
violent, divisive, intimidating, dishonest or fabricated and
unless I'm missing something, I didn't see or hear from Jeb
Bush apart from calling for the Special Election.
People, including myself, ran on an "open government,
responsible growth platform." Nowhere in that platform was
there an attack on government officials in office. I'd like to
also add that the candidates for open government won by a
land slide.
I find it very unfortunate that the vast majority of citizens
of Yankeetown felt they had no representation under the past
administration and were totally frustrated by the system.
So frustrated, that they did the only thing they could.. .they
voted the people responsible, for the old way of doing
things, out.
At our last meeting you loudly announced to the council
that "we needed to do our jobs." For the record, this current
group of elected officials represent Yankeetown like never
before. All are dedicated and involved in running the town
and juggling work schedules to always have someone "on
duty" at town hall. I, and the current council members,
do our homework on the issues, spending countless hours
without pay, to represent those who elected me.
We inherited a town on the brink of collapse and have
worked tirelessly to accomplish the critical tasks left undone
by the last government. Let me assure you that those of you
who did vote for me often tell me how proud they are of
the job being done by the current council and the personal
sacrifices being made for Yankeetown.
I feel that much of what you said doesn't deserve the
dignity of a response (including your insensitive, slanderous
and libelous choice of the word "psychopathic"), but I will
say this with regard to spending. The large ticket items
on the table at this time are items left over from the last
administration. We write the checks now for the decisions
and direction of council of the past. The fire truck, land for
percolation ponds (your pet project I believe) and zoning
official were all placed as agenda items before the election.
Our decisions on staff will cost us no more than what
was initially proposed, and we approached it in a different
way to ensure we have the best and highest quality staff in
Yankeetown. The prior administration considered hiring an
engineering firm at $100 per hour, with code enforcement an


additional $8 per hour. Yes, that company did everything, but
they had no oversight, since they policed their own work.
We hired a local person for local small scale zoning and
code enforcement at $20 per hour. Any person, no matter
how qualified, taking that position would need some training
and would need to study our Comp Plan and Ordinances.
We also hired a highly qualified zoning consultant for $100
per hour for larger projects. These larger projects could
have impacts that could change the face and community
character of Yankeetown forever. Our river is one of only
40 Outstanding Florida Water in the state, our wetlands and
uplands still natural and our community is unique in all
of Florida. Yankeetown represents the kind of old Florida
community in which I chose to live. I would like to make
sure Yankeetown is the kind of place we enjoy now many
generations into the future. It is ours to protect and ours to
lose. The. choice is all of ours... -
,. We wiljlensure tbgt,trfqghtrue cosppltiggan.d .
development fees, future development will not only
have to pay for itself, but will have to be consistent with
our Comprehensive Plan, community vision and land
development regulations. Development should not be placed
on the backs of taxpayers. We still have local oversight
and the right to say "no" to developments that are not in
compliance with our City Code or consistent with our
Comprehensive Plan. We will not back down.
Another of your concerns was in hiring Special Counsel to
direct us in Land Use issues. Your argument was that we're
paying for 2 attorneys and we could save money by using
one with all the expertise. I disagree, these days attorneys
are specialized. We also don't have to pay a retainer or offer
benefits to have a full range of attorneys on staff. We pay
as we go. Having a few attorneys on call, is the best of both
worlds and keeps their billing competitive.
One last item I must address is that of the budget for
this year. It was created by three citizens and was done
in two weeks, under pressure, to meet a deadline that had
been disregarded by the past government. As pa4 of that
committee, I can tell you that we used everything at our
disposal and did the best job we could with the limited time
we had to prepare a budget a task that was disregarded by
the previous council. It should come as no surprise to anyone
that there will be budget amendments as we move through
the budget year and determine where we have to spend our
money most wisely for the benefit of current and future
generations of Yankeetown citizens.
I would like to remind you that there's another election
in November. If you feel that things are not to your liking
or that you can do a better job, why don't you step up to the
plate instead of pitching your wild rhetoric in our direction.
I am not afraid to take a stand and walk the talk. I am more
concerned with preserving Yankeetown than your weekly
criticism. There is plenty of big city between here and
Tampa where development runs the day. If that is what you
are looking for, I suggest you look for it there. I like it here, I
am going to do what needs to be done to protect it, and I am
not leaving.

'Eat, eat-you look hungry'



Petrello's underlying coda


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
One recipe for success
begins this way: Combine
25 years of friendship and
the finest Italian ingredients
with the know-how born of
generations of experience.
Insert into an old crackerhouse
in a rural Florida community,
and wait for savory aromas to
spring forth.
Best friends Paulie Petrello
and Teddy Vega have done
just that. Petrello's at the Old
Boarding House is a Trenton
restaurant that promises "a
taste of Italy in the country."
Petrello and Vega honed
their talent-and their
friendship-while working
together as young men at
December's in Inglis and
Crackers in Crystal River.
Their current foray into
the business of hospitality
came about last year when
Petrello's brother Mikee
noticed the Trenton landmark,
the Old Boarding House
Restaurant, was for sale.
Mikee approached Paulie
with the idea of buying the
restaurant and opening their
own shop.
They found the charm of
the Old Boarding House just
right.
"The old-inn atmosphere
seemed reminiscent of an
Italian establishment. So here
we are," Paulie said recently.
"We liked the history-did
you know this actually was a
boarding house a number of
years ago?"
The Petrellos opened their
restaurant last July.
The brothers retained
the structure's cracker
beginnings. The front porch
and bead-board ceilings and
walls convey the feeling of
being home in the country.
A dash of color adds a

painted sun-gold. Bright red
Italian chili peppers hang
above a wood bar built by the
Petrello brothers.
The main dining room has
large windows, bookshelves,
and lace-covered windows. A
porch holds more-tables for
customers who prefer their
meals outside.
"Our food is authentic
Italian," Paulie says. "We use
the best ingredients and family
recipes. My grandmother
taught her daughters and one
daughter-in-law to cook." The
family's men are involved
in cooking too. "My father
attended a culinary institute
in Rhode Island."
The aromas arising from
the family's culinary know-
how tease restaurant-goers
with the promises of dishes
served in old Italy.
"Our signature dish, our
appetizer, is warm, European
style bread served with
roasted garlic in mixed olive


oils," Paulie said.
Specialties include
spaghetti, pasta primavera,
veal parmesan, sizzling
steak, shrimp and scallops.
Several different salads are
served, as well as pizza,
calzone and stromboli. Italian
sub sandwiches await the
lighter appetite, along with
appetizers and desserts. A
stocked bar includes Italian
wines, domestic and imported
beers and mixed drinks.
On a recent day just prior
to New Year's, Paulie and
Teddy were busy making a
special dish. "We're making
osso bucco today by request.
A customer came in a couple
of months ago from New
York. He loved our food,
and asked if we would cook
a special order. We said yes,
so this week he brought down
veal shanks from his butcher
up north. The meat is braised,
and then slowly cooked in the
oven for a few hours. We'll


serve it to him and his guests
tonight with creamy risotto
and sauteed spinach."
The restaurant is open
for lunch Monday through
Saturday from 11 a.m. until
2:30 p.m., and for dinner
Monday through Thursday
from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Dinner
is served on Fridays and
Saturday until 10 p.m.
Private rooms and catering
services are also available.
"We encourage people to
take a drive out to the country
and have a taste of Italy. You
can go to a buffet and eat for a
little while'. Or you can come
out here for a two-hour dining
experience. All our food is
home-cooked. We use family
recipes and the portions are
very big," Petrello said.
And if you can't finish your
large portion? "We love our
to-go boxes. People can have
a snack later or don't have to
cook the next day," he added.

Kingdom of the Sun proves too hot for Red Devils


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
Coming off of two victories
to remove some measure
of the discontentment of
their fifth place finish at the
Hitchcock Tournament, the
Red Devils motored into
the 33rd annual Kingdom
of the Sun tournament last
weekend.
Even after rebounding
with two victories at Santa
Fe, it was still imperative
for Williston to get off to
a good start and play their
best in the early rounds as
Knights' basketball coach
and tournament director Jim
Haley observed this year's
annual event may be the best
ever.
In order to compete with
other tournaments despite
his comparatively modest
funding, Haley started
focusing on the best available
sophomore and junior talent.
"In 1982 we switched to
a national tournament,"
Haley said. "In the mid-'80s
we started to go after the
top underclassmen to stay
competitive with the other big
national events. We've had
some senior All-Americans,
but mostly it's been the top
underclassmen."
For example: This year's
tournament saw seven players
sign early and their college
coaches came to see them
play.
That transitions into depth,
both the players and teams,
as the key to those squads
who won and advanced
in this year's tournament.
And Williston fit the checklist
as they entered the tournament
with four starters back off a
19-7 team .that advanced to
the state regional finals last
season.
Led by forward Jiwan
James (24 ppg, 6 rpg),
lightning quick point guard
Todd Brown (14 ppg, 7 apg),
the wide bodies of slashing
Jerrell Hopkins (13 ppg) and
Kapree Thomas (6 ppg, 8
rpg) the Red Devils also have
a world of depth with junior
Devin Timmons at the other
starting position, the return of
senior Omar Foxworth, four
upper classmen coming off
of the bench and the option
of three freshmen with bright
futures.
Haley's philosophy in
producing the national
tournament's reputation
of quality and longevity
was the perfect fit for the
Red Devils in the first two
rounds this year as they had
an opportunity to discover a
liking to the winner's bracket.
And once again, it should be
a factor in the Red Devils
quest to advance beyond
the regional finals in March.

Opening Round
Williston vs. North
Marion

After being stung by
substandard free throw
and transition results in its
first game at the Hitchcock
tournament, the Red Devils
took the court in their first
game of the Kingdom of
the Sun event looking for
vindication.
The principle flavor of the
contest had been dictated by
the old adage that basketball
is a game of spurts and as
the game moved into its final
stages, the ebb and flow of
the game saw both teams take
turns building runs between
six and ten points as those
spurts propelled each squad
into short lived leads.
But with 5:29 left in
the game the Red Devils
converted their full court


transition defense into a heavy
handed serving of irrevocable
chaos and desperation and


Journal photo by NE

WILLISTON'S Red Devils advanced two games before falling to LaSall


forged a 12-2 run to retake
the lead.
They not only retook the
lead, but made the outcome
a finality as the Red Devils
held the Colts scoreless from
the 5:29 mark until there
were less than 20 seconds left
in the game.
. "Williston created all
kinds of problems for us on
our offensive end," David
Waters, North Marion's head
coach, said. "Their defensive
pressure allowed them to
dominate the rebounds and
penetrate into our defense,
especially in transition.
"They did it all game, but
that final run was really the
point of the game where they
put it all together to win it.
Our game was still working,
but with that added pressure
it wore us down and we lost
our spacing and couldn't get
any passing lanes opened up
in the final minutes."
A 7-0 run by North Marion
gave the Colts a 41-37 and
set up the final run by the Red
Devils. It started with Devin
Timmons' drive to the basket
and score. He was fouled
and converted the three-point
play to slice the Colts' lead to
one.
Then with 3:38 left,
Timmons drove the right
baseline and connected on
a twisting lay-up to give the
Red Devils the lead for good.
Williston got the ball twice
due to consecutive turnovers
by North Marion.
The first change of
possession was due to a
traveling call in which the
Red Devils trapped the Colts
in the right corner of the half
court line. They got a wide-
open lay-up from three feet
away after they ripped the
ball out of the Colts' hands,


but missed it.
They got the ball back again
as Williston intercepted an
errant Colts' pass as they tried
to get it out of their end of the
court. They missed another
opportunity to increase the
lead. Then Williston forced
yet another turnover and a
low percentage shot by North
Marion, this time however,
they became scores when
Jiwan James connected on
a 12-foot jumper on the left
side of the paint and a slam-
dunk.
The slam-dunk came with
just under a minute left as
James streaked ,down the
left sideline in anticipation
of a full court lob, which
eventually came to him in
full stride about 15 feet from
the basket. The pass came off
of a long rebound following
a bad shot taken by the Colts
from the right comer in
response to the Red Devils'
defense.
Williston committed two
turnovers themselves during
the final stretch which could
have changed the outcome of
the game, but their full court
pressure and transition game
allowed them to immediately
regain possession of the ball
both times and set up James'
scoring plays.
The Red Devils opened the
game with a 7-0 run and scored
eight consecutive points to
end the half. The score was
22-14 in favor of Williston at
halftime. They also held the
Colts to a dismal 19-56 field
goal shooting performance
and their leading scorers,
Latrell Baker and Charles
Davis to 10 points each.

out to an 8-0 lead at the start
of the game before settling on
a seven-point lead at the end
of the first quarter.
They maintained a four
point lead heading into
halftime, but the lead began
to shrink as early as the Red
Devils first basket as they
outscored the Knights with a
28-16 run the rest of the way.
"With their press they took
advantage of our weak ball-
handling skills," Knights'
coach Jim Haley said.
"We didn't have the same
energy after the initial run
and they wore us down."
The Red Devils forced 38
Knight turnovers as the game
became more and more of a
weighted affair in Williston's
favor with each passing
moment in the second half.
In jostling their way to such
a vigorous lead they built a
16-5 advantage in turnovers
and a 17-7 edge in offensive
rebounds in the first half
after being almost shutout
in both categories during
the home team's initial run.
After the break, James nailed

Eagles split holiday tourney Eagles to honor Coach Bechham


BY NEAL FISHER
SPOres WRITER
The Bronson Holiday
Tournament was a contrasting
illustration of why sports can
be the best of times and the
worst of times as the host
team played two games as the
favorite.
They took the first game
against Dixie County by a
48-26 score. The difference
in the game was two 7-0 runs.
The first run ended the first
half. The second run started
the second half. The game
was tied at 14-14 when the
runs began.
"This was a much more
manageable team than we
faced at the Hitchcock's
tournament," head coach
Kelly Beckham said. "We
learned from that experience
and it showed tonight. Playing
against a team we were more
physically equal with after
playing Columbia, we felt we
could win this game by using
our physical advantages."
The Eagles won the game
with improvements in their
free throw shooting. They
made 21 of 30 attempts, but
more importantly, shot twice
as many free throws as they
had in their previous games
this year.
They also altered between
a two and three guard line-up
which caused problems for
the Bears.
"We were able to power
in some shots we missed at
Santa Fe," Beckham said.
"We made some easy shots
during those 7-0 runs we
were missing before. I think
playing a more physical game'
than we could at Santa Fe,
had something to do with the
difference in making those
shots. And our shot selection
was better.
"Our play went from,
lethargic to very energetic
during the runs and we carried
it into the fourth quarter."
Eleven different players
scored as the Eagles' balanced
attack also contributed to the
victory. Jamie Rivers led the
Eagles' attack with 12 points.
The Eagles entered the
game as favored to win it.
They were also favored
to defeat their semifinal
round opponent, Westshore.
Playing against a relatively
young program, Westshore's
basketball program is in only
its eighth year of existence,
the Eagles played like the
favorite in the first period.
They bolted out to a 17-
6 lead at the end of the
first quarter, looking like
a traditional Beckham
coached team, they found
high percentage shots and
continuing to power the
ball inside. The Eagles had
found their rhythm and were


A celebration is planned on Friday, Jan.
12 at the BHS gymnasium to honor Boys'
Basketball Coach Kelly Beckham, who

December 2005, placing him among an elite
few in high school coaches.
Also honored will be long-time Assistant
Coach Phillip Knight 'who has been with
Beckham for most of his successful career

playing with the same type of
maneuvering they ended the
first round game with.
However, the Eagles fell
into a swoon and scored
only three points in both the
second and third period. With
that change, Westshore found
itself tied with Bronson at 20-
20 at halftime and then built
a 35-23 lead heading into the
final period. They closed the
gap to six twice and eight
several times, but they had
dug a hole too deep to make
any more strides towards
cutting the deficit.
They also made several
turnovers in the closing
minutes which killed their
chances of completing' the
rally.
Their full court press forced
Westshore into committing
more turnovers than the
Eagles, but the home team's
turnovers came when they
were trying to rally in the
final minutes and they were
two steps backwards towards
that end after they took a step
forward.
"We just stopped doing
the things that got us the
lead," Beckham said. "We
were aggressive, rebounding,
taking excellent shots and
guarding our opponents. We
also didn't shoot very well at
the free throw line throughout
the whole game. When
you don't do those things,
you don't give yourselves a
chance to win.
"And our turnovers also
led to our downfall. Every
time we began to get some
momentum in the final period
we turned the ball over. They
hit their first six shots of the
second half to extend the lead
over the important 10-point
barrier. They beat us off of
the dribble every time. I was
not satisfied with our defense


tonight and the sc

senior years as he led the

During his days at
1, Barber- Michigan, Ford was known
Thomas-5' as a man who lived up to the
*, Dukes-1, conviction that football is a
team sport in which winning
squads do the less popular
things in preparing for the
games and take care of the
small details.
On one occasion Georgia
Tech refused to play the
Wolverines, because
Michigan had a standout who
was African-American. In
a time when discrimination
was acceptable, Ford refused
to play. Not only because of
discrimination, but because
the player was a part of the
team.
Ford, as the captain, did
what was best for the team.
He could have remained
silent and avoided criticism,
but he felt as captain he
needed to put the good of the
team above all else.
He made the statement
the team is always more
important than any one
individual and sometimes
a man has to step above his
comfort zone and endure
difficult ramifications for his
decisions if he is to be its
leader.
After graduation he
Neal Fisher turned down contract offers
from the Detroit Lions
es easily and Green Bay Packers to
pursue a law degree at Yale


University. As much as he
loved football, he gave up
the opportunity of fame and
fortune as a professional
athlete to pursue a law
career.
He thought his place
was serving his hometown
community of Grand Rapids,
Mich. as a lawyer.
In 1942, he heard the
nation's plea for volunteers
to serve in the military. At a
time when his professional
career was beginning to
sprout wings, he had every
reason to ignore the call
to arms, but he thought he
would best serve others by
enlisting.
After he served his
country and only three weeks
after marrying Elizabeth
Ann Warren Bloomer (Betty
Ford) he once again gave
up his law career to serve
others as he was elected to
his first term in the House of
Representatives..
Instead of Ford making.
time with his new bride,
the couple's honeymoon
consisted of them driving
to Washington D.C. and
moving the newly elected
representative into his office.
After serving in the House
of Representatives for 26
years, which included a stint
as its minority leader, he
planned to leave to become a
lobbyist. Instead he received
a call from Nixon asking
him to take over the office of
vice-presidency amidst Spiro
Agnew's resignation.
When he thought about
calling it a career as a
politician again he was
called upon to lead the
country through its most
difficult crises within its
. own government in over a
century.
His rise to the presidency
was an accident or at least
most of the country thought
so. He just happened to be
the last man standing after
the men who held the two
highest offices in the land
could no longer deal with the
stain their actions left on our
government.
Ford was an energetic
man. He worked hard and
loved to travel, but many
thought he was too passive
to be president.
Syndicated columnist
Richard Reeves asked him
what was the most exciting
event of his World War II
experience?
His response: stepping
onto an aircraft carrier
deck during a storm, being
knocked off his feet and
sliding on his back across the
runway's slippery surface,
saved from being hurled into
the sea by the nets along the
sides along the ship.
But in 1974 that
temperament was exactly
what the country needed.
It did not need a "let's go
get the bad guys" presidency
like Franklin Roosevelt or
George Bush installed, or
"it's a time for new ideas


Page 9


and generation" like John
Kennedy had or a "this is
a precedence" as George
Washington had done or "we
need to fight a war to keep
the nation from physically
splitting apart" as Abraham
Lincoln had to.
In giving Nixon his
pardon, Ford stated, "we
need to get on with the
business of running the
country." That was what
the nation needed. Ford
understood the situation
and in his own outwardly
passive, understated and
subtle way rose to the
challenge.
He was indeed in a sense
an "accidental president,"
never seeking either the vice-
presidency or presidency.
However, in another sense,
in embodying the personality
of his traits and character
and views on what makes
a person a strong leader, he
was the perfect tan for the
task at-hand..' ---'
I still remember as a child
watching him look squarely
into the camera and never
hesitating or blinking in
announcing his unpopular
decision of pardoning Nixon.
He knew in his heart his
role was to do what was best
for the country in order to
move it past Watergate and
he had to pardon Nixon in
order to fulfill it. In doing
so, he sacrificed his own
reputation at the time and
political career in carrying
out the mission of a public
servant.
Launching a second
investigation into Watergate
for the purpose of criminal
charges, would have done
the country no good for a
variety of reasons ranging
from ignoring the need to
show compassion towards
a trouble man in Nixon to
giving the nation a reason to
have faith once again in its
government.
To most of the country, it
was his defining legacy and
all conversations start and
end with the pardon, but to
us Michaganians it was just
another decision in Ford's
life which was an extension
showing the kind of leader
he was.
He saw things only strong
leaders understand at the
time decisions have to be
made. After all one does not
find himself in the position
in which Ford was in to
become vice-president and
then president by "accident."
His decision to pardon
Nixon and to a lesser degree
the accomplishments of his
life which I read and heard
about was truly a defining
moment in my childhood.
His life was an example
of how to make difficult
decisions and move on,
regardless of their popularity.

consolation game against St. Petersburg Lakewood.
After trailing 47-24 at halftime the Red Devils cut the lead
to 16 as they began to hit three pointers and create turnovers.
It was capped off by a three-pointer by Jiwan James, which
narrow the gap to 56-40 with 3:31 to play in the third
quarter.
But for as meticulous and vigilant as the Red Devils
cutting into the lead was, the Lancers exploded in return.
A combination of turnovers, unset shots and a transition
game that Williston could not handle left the Red Devils
with an unhappy ending to their fourth appearance in the
tournament.
The Lancers roll took them from a 16 point lead to a
difference of 28 markers within four minutes.
Williston put itself in such a bad predicament with a
horrible start to the game, trailing 29-6 after the first quarter.
"We really came out ready to go and got on them
pretty quick, surprised them with our quickness and
our length," said LaSalle head coach Dan Fleming.
The Lancers also overwhelmed the Red Devils in their scoring
versatility as they saw 13 players break into the statistic book.
In the first two games, while relying on seniors James and
Hopkins for the bulk of their scoring, the Red Devils received
contributions from every one else in other ways.
Against the Lancers the rest of the team was reduced to
spectators as Hopkins and James 19 and 1 8.points, respectively
were ineffective without the other players' contributions.
LaSalle's Bobby Austin led the Lancers with 18 points.
"Our kids didn't fold the tent.. They didn't give up,"
said Williston head coach George Miller. "That's a darn
good ball club. When you get to this point, the semis
and finals, there are no slouches in this tournament.
We kept fighting. We just didn't have the ammo."
The Red Devils played St. Petersburg Lakewood in the
consolation game. LaSalle went on to play defending
champion Decatur (Ga.), and defeat them to claim their
second Kingdom of the Sun Tournament title.

St. Petersburg Lakewood vs. Williston
Consolation Game

The game was about determining bragging rights for the
Florida schools in the tournament and it was the Spartans
who earned the right to boast for the next year with a 66-59
victory.
With 10 teams from Florida in the tournament's field, the
consolation game featured two state teams whose fortunes


were determined by contrasting styles of defense. chee
