Commission split

on manager's salary

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
CHIEFLAND-Grady Hartzog has a new boss, or five of
them, as of this Friday, when he begins the work Tunning the
city of Chiefland. His final approval came from the same three
who voted for him during the shortlist selection of potential
candidates.
Commissioners Teresa Barron, Teal Pomeroy and Rollin
Hudson all voted to approve his contract during Monday's city
commission meeting. Mayor Betty Walker and Commissioner
Alice Monyei voted against approving his contract.
The final point of contention was Hartzog's salary-he
asked for $65,000 per year.
Rodney Russ, who had served as the last elected city manager,
as well as the two interim managers, Maxie Beauchamp and
Matt Brock, each earned salaries that spread into a year would
have garnered about $55,000. Beauchamp held the post for
approximately one month and Brock for about two months
while commissioners searched for a permanent replacement.
Of Hartzog's salary request Pomeroy said, "We asked every
single applicant and they all wanted around that amount."
In response to onlooker Sherry Cruise's challenge that the
money was more than that budgeted for a city manager salary,
Pomeroy said the city had "more than an adequate amount"
set aside.
Cruise rebutted: "You couldn't budget more money for
police officers after the annexation." Police Chief Robert
Douglas was recently denied a request to add two officers to
his roster.
Pomeroy countered, "We already have police officers. We
don't have a city manager."
Walker read from a list of salaries from previous managers.
All had received salaries in the mid 50s.
Barron recalled previous commission discussions on salary
levels the city would be willing to pay, saying, "We've talked
about salaries and everyone agreed we'd have to pay more."
Commissioners posted the recent job listing with a salary
range from $46,000 to $70,000.
Outgoing manager Brock added his comment as well.
Brock, who had been the choice of both Walker and Monyei,
reminded them that his salary request "was in the higher range
at $70,000."
Monyei's comment was directed to Hartzog: "I hope you're
worth $65,000," she said.


Foresters Salute Cedar Key


Journal photos by Rhonda Griffiths

THE COMMUNITY of Cedar Key was honored Tuesday for its role in harvesting
red cedars used in pencil manufacturing and pines and bald cypress for
the lumber industry. The tribute, by the Florida
Society of American Foresters, included
unveiling a commemorative plaque near the
Faraway Inn. Spokesman Ed Barnard said the
event is "to further the cause of forestry in
America by fostering a spirit of comradeship
among foresters; by creating opportunities
for a free interchange of views upon forestry
and allied subjects; and by disseminating a
knowledge of the purpose and achievements
of forestry." Mark Milligan, with the Division of
Forestry, and Cedar Key Vice Mayor Vanessa
Edmunds (top) were on hand to show off the
plaque. Commission of Agriculture Charles
Bronson, left, also attended the event.


Council will discuss terms of manager's contract

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
WILLISTON-Williston
City Council will meet
Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. to discuss
terms of city manager James
Coleman's contract.
Council member Debra
Jones brought forward the
request, saying she has heard
several comments by people


concerned that Coleman has
never established a residence
within city limits.
Jones also charged that the
contract as eventually written
was not worded as the council
had requested.

"On the worksheet, we all
wanted him to move here.
His salary increase was tied


to that. That never made it
into the contract," she said,
adding that the contract ended
up "watered down."
Jones' assertion that
council was firm over the
residential clause requirement
was challenged by council
member Jerry Robinson.
Robinson rebutted Jones
with a reminder that she


had voted approval on the
contract's final draft.
"Nobody wants me here
in the city more than I do,"
Coleman said.

"I can't control the housing
market. I've been trying to sell
my house for two years. I'm
not going to lose that amount
of money," he added.


Coleman said that
although he would cooperate
with council in the contract
discussions, he was satisfied
with the contract as it is
written.
"I will be there, and I will
participate," he answered
after being asked by council
member Cal Byrd whether he
would discuss the contract.

Perhaps this will be the "before" shot in a "before and after" duo-should
CRA's plans for a matching grant program encourage revitalization of Willis-
ton's commercial downtown. CRA hopes business and building owners on the
Noble-Main Street corridor will apply for up to $5,000 to spruce up building
facades.

Manatee photographer to speak at


Fanning Springs Park Jan. 17


January is Manatee Awareness Month for Manatee Springs
and Fanning Springs State Parks.
During January of every year, park guests have the
opportunity to learn more about the efforts of grass roots
citizens' groups and government agencies alike to protect the
manatee and the habitat around the state that manatees use.
An addition to this year's line-up of speakers is Karen
Glaser.
Glaser is a prominent photographer well-known for her
images of manatees.
"Mysterious Manatees" (University Press) features manatee
images from around the state but much of her work has been
done in the local area. Her current work has expanded to
include wonderful images of Florida's world-class and world-
famous "springs."
Glaser has recently completed work in South Florida at
Big Cypress National Preserve as an artist in residence. Her
work has also been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum in

Your View


We are the stewards of the earth
To the editor:
In response to Susan Rose's letter about "No Excuse
For Trash Lined Roads" her words brought to mind my
experiences several years ago in trying to bring Earth Day to
Bronson and Levy County.
All six points you mentioned are not only valid, but were
suggested at the time and promptly ignored. Apparently it
was more conducive for the county commissioners to allow
the trash to remain on the sides of the roads and in residents'
yards, woods, etc. rather than incur the cost of properly
disposing of the debris, while utilizing an opportunity to
involve and educate the community.
1 did manage to convince the commissioners to allow
the residents one free day void of tipping fees at the county
landfill.
Seeing all the cars and trucks lined up at the landfill scales
that day was a real thrill for my supporters and me. The day
was a complete success, however I received nothing but
discouraging comments from the county and its employees
when I suggested this become an annual event, including
an Earth Day fair and parade. I was told the $10,000 cost of
that free day was not worth it even though it was a miniscule
amount in comparison to the county's general fund.
The purpose of Earth Day for me was to honor God and
His creation. It is my understanding that we are the stewards
of this earth and all its inhabitants.
I even did a mass mailing to all the local churches at my
own expense requesting they participate to no avail. Not one
single response was received. It is with this in mind that I
sincerely wish you good luck in this endeavor. Remember
people the current leadership of this county are busy
promoting tourism. Come enjoy the trash lined roads and
hammocks of Levy County!

Vice mayor should apologize
To the editor:
RE: Response to Marsha Drew, Yankeetown vice Mayor
The Jan. 3 letter in the Newscaster from Yankeetown vice
Mayor Marsha Drew requires a public apology for using her
elected town position to chill citizen debate.
Vice Mayor Drew took an oath to represent all citizens of
Yankeetown, not just the ones who agree with her. She was
not elected to play Queen of Hearts with her attitude of "off
with their heads." All citizens must feel they can address
the town' without fear of reprisal by elected officials. Her
position should not be used as a bully pulpit to intimidate
citizens. Her functioning of town representative must be held
to a higher standard.
I am not commenting on whose position regarding budget
expenditures is correct. However, Mr. Mazzuca's questions
regarding town budget and cost expenditures are worthy' of
response and respect. By virtue of his long town involve-
ment and business knowledge he has the right and skill to
ask these questions. Vice Mayor Drew defends current town
actions by blaming the previous administration without ac-
knowledging current council's actions. This is time honored
political theater-"it is not my fault, it is the fault of all who
came before me".
The chill effect occurs when a vice Mayor instructs a citi-
zen that if you don't agree with the council then leave town.
This is a defining character of a dictatorship, not an Ameri-
can town. If 2006 was defined by anything in Yankeetown,
it was debate and discussion, both civil and uncivil. Yet no
citizen was asked by any elected official to leave town! I
have to believe that she is politically clueless as to the legal
and moral responsibilities of an elected official, and writes
with the poor choice of words of one whose purpose is to
defend self and attack others. Surely, she is not represent-
ing a formal position of town council that any citizen who
dares to criticize the council should leave Yankeetown.
The people, who voted for an open and honest government
several months ago, do not condone a council deciding who
should live in town based solely on whether they agree with
the council.
If Vice Mayor Drew's response is to smirk and maintain
the position that she is in charge and "what can they do to
me," then we the citizens of Yankeetown are the less for
it. If, on the other hand, she musters the class to publicly
apologize to Mr. Mazzuca and the town, then we the citizens
of Yankeetown are better for it. To which standard will she
resonate?

Avaiabl from Commercial News Providers"


Io


Chiefland needs a new year s effort, and a

healthy serving of cooperation to boot


I believe that every
new year brings each
of us a choice. We
can move closer to
fulfilling our potential, or
remain locked in a rigid
holding pattern. Most of us
at least make some effort to
get off on the right foot. If
we don't draw up an actual
list of resolutions, we at least
hold ideas of goals in our
head.
As I sat through Monday
night's Chiefland City
Commission meeting,
I heard the refrain that
played through several
2006 meetings I attended.
Much of that was
decidedly unharmonious.
Commissioners sailed
through most of their agenda
items Monday, no doubt
wanting to dispense with
business and get home
to cheer the Gators on to
victory in their championship
bid against Ohio.
They may have set a
record-the commissioners,
that is, who ended the
meeting before the game's
8:15 kick-off time.
They discussed 11 agenda
items. The other item was
not discussed as much as it
was argued. In the pejorative
sense. And as with so many
arguments, nothing anyone
said seemed to change
anyone else's mind.
All the flack came up as
commissioners discussed
whether to approve city


manager candidate Grady
Hartzog's salary request of
$65,000. Commissioners
Teal Pomeroy, Rollin
Hudson and Teresa Barron,
who had voted to hire
Hartzog over the other short-
listed
candidates,
had no
problem
with his
salary
request.
Mayor .
Betty
Walker CASSIE JOURNIGAN
and Alice Columnist
Monyei
voted no Monday night.
They, and one resident, had
problems with Hartzog's
salary request.
Both Walker and Monyei
had voted for interim Matt
Brock during last month's
short-listing process. Monyei
mentioned wanting to vote
for him during the Dec. 18
meeting held specifically
to choose the next city
manager. There were only
two candidates left by then.
Brock was not one of them.
Both Monyei and Walker
voted against Hartzog Dec.
18.
Matt Brock gets the kudos
for last night's meeting.
After the stridently vocal
comments against Hartzog's
salary request, Brock
commented that his salary
request at $70,000 was
higher than Hartzog's.


Last fall's advertisement
of the open position, which
all the commissioners had
approved, set the salary
range between $46,000
and $70,000, depending on
qualifications.
Grady Hartzog worked
for the city of Newberry for
30 years. The roles he filled
would seem to leave him
qualified. He had served
as mayor and acting city
manager. Before that he
worked as building inspector
and superintendent of the
sewer system.
Is it fair to set a salary
amount, and then vote down
a salary request that falls
within that range?
Grady Hartzog gets five
new bosses Friday, when he
begins the work of running
the city of Chiefland.
I for one hope his bosses,
the city staff and residents
all give him the support and
respect he needs to fulfill
successfully the duties of his
office.
After three captains in
a one-year period, the city
needs that.
Then maybe 2007, and all
of us who reside in or around
the fine city of Chiefland,
will have a chance of being
off to a good start.

Social Security

statements

mailed



BY CLIF COPELAND
SOCIAL SECURITY PUBLIC
AFFAIRS SPECIALIST
,It is not too early to
Begin gathering the
Information you will
need to file your
income taxes.
And, if you receive Social
Security benefits, you will
be glad to know your Social
Security Benefit Statement,
or Form SSA-1099, can be
expected to arrive in the mail
this month.
Beneficiaries will need
this 1099 Benefit Statement
to complete their federal
income tax return and to find
out whether their benefits are
subject to income tax.
Generally, you have to pay
taxes on your Social Security
benefits if your total annual
income, is more than $25,000
as an individual or $32,000
for a couple. Less than a
third of beneficiaries pay
taxes on their benefits.
The Benefit Statement
shows the gross amount of
benefits that were due and
the net amount of benefits
paid. The 1099 also shows
the amount of any payments
(such as Medicare premi-
ums) that were withheld.
The 1099 Benefit State-
ment should not be confused
with the Social Security
Statement, which is mailed
to all workers age 25 or older
not yet receiving benefits and
gives an estimate of future
benefits available.
The 1099 Benefit State-
ment, mailed in January, re-
ports the amount of benefits
a person has received in the
past year.
Benefit Statements are
only sent to individuals who
received Social Security ben-
efits in the prior year, so you
will only receive one if you
were paid Social Security
benefits in 2006.
People who get Supple-
mental Security Income
(SSI) do not receive Benefit
Statements, since SSI is
based on need and is not
considered taxable income.
If you got Social Security
benefits in 2006 and you do
not find a Social Security
Benefit Statement in your
mailbox by Jan. 31, or if you
need a replacement copy,
you can request one online
by visiting our website at
www.socialsecurity.gov/onli-
neservices.
. Or you can call Social
Security's toll-free number,
1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-
.800-325-0778).

taxation of Social Security
benefits, call the Internal
Revenue Service's toll-free

Our elderly are so impor-

this topic is important al-

Remember, the Alzheim-

cry out for help or respond
to shouts. Many are found
within 33 feet of a road or

They are wandering. Here
are some search and rescue

person wanders off.
First thing we'll do is
conduct a highly systematic
search of the residence/nurs-

Patrols will be sent to places

Stricter dock ordinances coming
To the editor:
Discussion during the Jan. 3 Yankeetown Planning
and Zoning Commission (P&Z) meeting focused on
development by the commission of dock ordinances
that would give the town control of permitting of dock
construction, expansion and maintenance.
According to the town compliance officer the town is
involved in permitting currently to confirm that the builder
has obtained county and other required permits.
Historically, Levy County has jurisdiction over dock
permitting from the mean high water mark to the middle of
the river.
It was discussed by the commission that Yankeetown
would seek to gain control through an inter local agreement
with Levy County, wherein the town's dock ordinances
would take precedence. The commission was uncertain that
such an agreement with the county can be accomplished.
Apparently the town has jurisdiction of canals and upland
cuts (man made cuts into the river bank) and any dock
ordinances resulting from current code development work
will apply to these water properties if and when they become
law.
Ordinances require town council approval after a process
of public hearings and input. The commission did not
indicate when they would be prepared to send their dock
ordinance recommendations to council.
The time and place of P&Z meetings is posted at town hall
prior to the meeting and on the bill board sign at the town
limits.
Town residents, particularly those with affected,.
waterfront properties are encouraged to attend.

Tax rebels to meet for 'Home Rule'
To the editor:
So you think you can't do anything about the property tax
gun held to your head? Guess again!
The Levy County Tax Rebels have a solution. And it's le-
gal! It's a solution that was added to the "new" 1968 Florida
constitution.
That's right. The current Constitution of the state of
Florida replaced the state of Florida Constitution of 1885!
The 1968 Florida legislature saw the need for a new type
of county government.. .A government which they named
a "Home Rule" form of government. A government for the
people, by the people and of the people. A government that
we do not have today in Levy County! The good news is that


we have the right to a "Home Rule" form of county govern-
ment.
Home Rule government gives the voters of Levy County
a real voice in how the county runs. Learn how. Attend the
"Levy County Tax Rebel" meeting -
When? Thursday, Jan. 11th, 7 p.m.
Where? Cedar Key Cedar Cove Conference Room
- Next to the "Island Room" restaurant at the east end of 2nd
Street
Why? Learn how to make a permanent change in our
Levy County government
This is a fight that must be won. If unfair county govern-
ment laws and actions are hurting you or your friends, this is
a fight for you! This is not just about taxes, although unfair
taxes are the immediate concern. Unfair taxes are just the
tip of the iceberg! Unfair government hurts everyone!
We do have a solution. Find out what it is and YOU DE-
CIDE!

Her way or the highway?
To the editor:
I find the Jan. 4 letter to the editor in the Levy County
Journal from Marsha Drew, our newly elected Yankeetown
Vice Mayor, to be frightening.
As an American, I do not expect to be asked by town of-
ficials to leave town for exercising my constitutional right to
criticize the government, an old and time-honored tradition.
Part of political leadership is taking the heat or getting out of
the kitchen. Retaliation by elected officials on townspeople
for expressing their views is, at best, very poor judgment.
I find it sadly laughable that the vice mayor provided only
political rhetoric in her published responses to the points
raised by Mr. Mazzuca. Yet she had the audacity to say
that, "we inherited a town on the brink of collapse." This is
consistent with the ongoing attempt of this administration to
convince us that the failure of the town government was cre-
ated by the previous mayor, while the town was intentionally
being collapsed around her,
The vice mayor, from her office, represents the views of
the town of Yankeetown government and that is the most
ominous, threatening aspect of her letter. The vice mayor's
response served to confirm Mr. Mazzuca's observation that
if you are not is lockstep with this government's views, you
will be arrogantly dismissed or, even worse, you will be
invited to leave town if you don't like it.
Where is the open, honest, representative government we
were promised?

Breakfast funds needed for FCAT

To the editor:
It is the time of year again when we begin preparing
our students to take the FCAT or Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test. The administration, faculty and staff are
working very hard to help our students become successful
test takers.
As you may know, statistics show that students that get
plenty of rest and a good breakfast do better with taking test.
This is where we are asking for your help. We are asking for
donations to be able to provide our students with breakfast on
the days of test taking. This will allow us to make sure that all
of our students have breakfast and not just a few of them. We
feel that this will help all of our students to be successful.
Your donations are greatly appreciated. Thanks for your
generous and continued support of our school programs.
Our testing schedule includes:
Four (4) days in February-testing for our 8th and 10h grade
students on Florida Writes + during Feb. 6, 2007 until Feb. 9,
2007.
During Feb. 26, 207, until March 9, 2007, all students
will be tested in reading and math and the NRT or Norm
Referenced Test. The 81 and 11th grade students will also take
the FCAT science exam; and juniors and seniors will take
FCAT retakes.
Our menu will be breakfast pizza, bagel and cream cheese
with chilled juice or fruit and assorted milk.
The price list for food including tax is as follows:
Breakfast pizza, case of 128, $29.06
Bagels, case of 72, 11.39
Cream cheese, case of 100, 16.25
Assorted juice case of 70, 9.04
Apples, case of 125, 31.50
Assorted milk, case of 50, 20.98
We will need enough funds to serve 600 children a day.
All donations need to be in by Jan. 22, 2007. Make checks
payable to L.C.F.S.

several incidents involving
oxen that pulled wagon loads
of cabbage buds to the fiber
factory in Cedar Key in the
1930s and 1940s. He wrote:
"Once one of the bud
cutters had a wagon load of
cabbage buds being pulled by
a stubborn ox. The ox stopped
and wouldn't go, so the fellow
built a fire underneath him.
The ox simply moved ahead
enough for the wagon to be
over the fire and stopped,
causing fire damage to the
wagon."
Other stories tell of
everyday life in childhood
years. Nathan Miller wrote:
"Once a year my father and
us kids would get behind the
cows, and walk behind them,
and holler once in a while,
and pop the cow-whip."
One cow was a leader,


The Dan Andrews Family

Miller explained, and she
knew just what to do. She
would walk in the lead, cross
the road at Rosewood, and
lead them into Gulf Hammock
swamp.
Nine months later, Miller's
dad would go into the swamp,
"hollering once in a while,
pop the cow-whip, and that


lead cow would lead them
back to our home."
Other stories show that
teenage bravado is not
entirely a modern occurrence.
Frances English sent a story
she thinks occurred around
1939, with the author of the
story, her uncle Paul Davis,
being about 14 or 15:


First, the story goes, Paul
and his younger brother,
Tildon, were out target
shooting .22s-shooting "tin
cans, bottles, and everything
else," until they had about
three rounds left between
them. At the edge of a pond
they saw an alligator that
Paul judged to be five or six
feet long. They shot at the
alligator, but the critter just
lay there, undisturbed.
Paul wrote: "I kind of have
a bad temper and decided I'd
run him out of the pond. That
wasn't the only reason-I
was also showing off with my
kid brother. I took that sheath
knife between my teeth and
went in after him. I swam two
thirds of the way across the
pond and the alligator decided
that he didn't want any part
of that crazy fellow coming
toward him, so the alligator
got out of the pond."
Can you top that?

Running a G-rated race


What's the
big deal,"
my brother
Heath asked.
"We'll pack a tent and throw
a few hotdogs in the cooler.
It's just us fellows. We'll be
fine." He was probably right.
What did our wives know?
I reckon this very nation
was settled by men just like
us, willing to ride off half-
cocked with only a pack of
weenies in their saddlebags.
Just because it was Thursday
of race week and we still
hadn't shored up the little
details, like tickets and a
place to stay, was no call to
be going soft. Surely a little
ole' NASCAR race in some
tiny town called Talladega


wouldn't draw that many
people.
We left that Saturday
before daybreak. Stopping at
a local truckstop we loaded
up with ice for the two
coolers of food our wives
had packed. Oddly, there
was a wait at the checkout
line. When I finally laid
my money on the counter
the lady said, "You must
be going to Talladega?"
My head cocked sideways,
"How'd you know that?"
She just smiled, "Honey,
people been coming through
here all week." We were 229
miles from Talladega. Maybe
this was some sort of 'Big
Deal'!

Proposed subdivision prompts traffic concerns


BY CAROLYN RISNER
MANAGING EDITOR
BRONSON-Citizens who live along Airport
Road near Williston are concerned that a pro-
posed subdivision may cause increased traffic
problems on an already-congested road.
Last week at the January meeting of the
Levy Planning and Zoning Commission, half a
dozen property owners expressed their concern
that if the 39-unit single dwelling subdivision
is built, it may make life miserable for anyone
needing access to Highway 121.
Airport Meadows, the development pro-
posed by Prinston Jean-Glaude, Elima Napo-
leon and Alie Brutus, would be on 25.7 acres
near the industrial park.
Rusty Geiger, Woody Smith, Cindy Geiger
and Joyce Smith all said that at peak times dur-
ing the day, residents who live along the road
have a difficult time entering traffic. They said
it was especially bad when Monterey Boats


has shift changes or lunches and up to 100
vehicles are on the road at .one time. Add-
ing more houses, and therefore more people,
would only worsen the problem, they con-
tended.
"It's not fair to the people who live in the
country," Cindy Geiger said. The thought
was echoed by Joyce Smith who has lived
there since 1967 and sought privacy when
settling in the area.
Ron Grant made a motion to deny the ap-
plication but it died for a lack of a second.
Toni Collins then moved to approve the
application but recommended the board of
county commissioners do a traffic study and
the level of service be consistent with that on
180th Street. The motion passed with Grant
dissenting. The county commission will hear
the developer's petition in February.
In other business, Thad Barber was elect-
ed the new chairman of the board and Grant
was elected vice chairman.


Councilmen may


Students of the Month


serve


longer terms


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
WILLISTON-Williston's
city council cleared one
hurdle in lengthening terms
of elected officials last week.
In the first meeting of
the year, council considered
replacing the two-year term
with three years. The first
reading passed by three-
to-two vote, with council
members Debra Jones and
Cal Byrd dissenting.
Scott McIntosh received
council's unanimous approval
for city attorney Norm Fugate
to draw up a subdivision
agreement for Park Place
Estates. 'The subdivision's
first phase is expected to
contain 29 lots with eventual
plans to expand to 98 lots.
Members from the
Cornerstone Assembly ofGod
requested a fee waiver for their
monthly use of facilities in
Linear Park. Council member
Jones expressed concern that
the church program requires
electricity that the city must
pay.
Council member Byrd
moved, and Jones seconded,
approval for the church to
continue using the facilities
after paying an annual fee of
$100 to cover electrical costs.
The motion was unanimously
passed.
A workshop with council
members, the Community
Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) and Florida
Redevelopment Agency is
scheduled for Feb. 6 at 5:30
p.m. Tax increment financing
will be discussed.
Public works director
James Arrington received
unanimous approval by
council to retain Burrell


Engineering of Dunnellon
as engineer of record in
completing the Department of
Environmental Protection's
requirement for a water
supply capacity analysis
report.
Council also granted
approval to Arrington's
request to enter an agreement
with Department of
Corrections in using local
inmates to complete various
public works projects.
Other actions council
members took during the Jan.
2 meeting included:
Approval of a
resolution to use a uniform
method for collecting
non-ad valorem special
assessments. City Manager
James Coleman explained
that passage of the resolution
would not necessarily mean
special taxes would be
collected, but rather provided
the mechanism for user fees
to be imposed should council


decide they were necessary.
Council member Debra Jones
sounded the sole "no" vote,
saying, "We're nickling and
diming them to death."
Approval of a fire
services agreement with the
county in spite of city attorney
Norm Fugate's concerns over
the county's ability to revoke
the agreement with only a 30-
day notice. Fire chief Lamar
Stegall was in favor of the
contract as written.
Approval to send a
letter of support of variance
for FOWAS to operate a small
animal spay/neuter clinic.
Discussion of
changing the Williston city
seal. The seal as represented
on current stationery and
signage throughout the city is
seen as lacking artistic merit.
Council members would
like to see new designs that
are representative of the
community and welcomes
citizens' ideas.

Lighthouse will feature Dr. Kibarabara


Lighthouse Word Church,
located on US 27, Chiefland
will host Dr. Bishop Gerry
Kibarabara of Nairobi, Ke-
nya Sunday, Jan. 21 at 10:30
a.m. and 6 p.m.
Dr. Kibarabara was born in
the bush country amongst the
wild animals. Yet neither he
nor his mother was harmed.
He was the son of one of the
tribal chiefs of the Kikuyus,
and carried food and water


to the Mau Mau warriors
as they fought against the
British troops to gain their
independence. When he
became a Christian, his
family rejected him and his
newfound faith, so the Lord
supernaturally provided food
for him.
Dr. Kibarabara, who
formerly worked in the
import-export business, is
now an international speaker


in Conventions, Camp
Meetings and Teaching
Seminars and is the founder
and senior pastor of over
100 churches in Kenya. He
is widely traveled in African
and European countries as
well as Australia, the Middle
East and the United States.

Kelly Beckham will be toast of the town Friday

Bronson coach boasts 500 career wins


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
On the way home after
what has become the norm
at Bronson High School,
an Eagles' victory under
head basketball coach,
Kelly Beckham, a group of
approximately 10 alumni
and fans gathered to eat and
discuss the game.
Everyone in the group had
at one point or another the
direct tie that they or their sons
had played for Beckham.
It was a scene that has
probably been repeated.
thousands of times as the
coach's tenacious tour de
force of leadership has
melded countless young
adults into men through his
way of playing basketball.
But this time it was
different. The group talked
about celebrating what
would soon be an historically
significant accomplishment in
a laundry list of achievements
in Beckham's career, his
500th win as head coach, as
well as honoring his two long
time assistants, Phil Knight
and Kenny Thomas.
On Dec. 1, the need for that
celebration was transformed
into a reality set for this
Friday at 6pm as Beckham
notched his milestone victory
by a score of 69-46 over Dixie
County.
In the spirit of what
Beckham and his two
assistants have meant to
so many families in the
county, they are beloved
men throughout Bronson and
Levy County simply because
the trio has been involved in
over 500 victories.
However, with over 500
wins, their influence, effect
and inspiration go far beyond
the black and white figure
of victories. Nonetheless, it
is Beckham who has set the
tone throughout the years.
"The main reason I have
stayed here is because of what
he teaches the boys," Knight
said. "They leave here with
standards. When I got into
coaching my ambition was
to be in an atmosphere where
the kids are taught how to
attain their aspirations in the
right way.
"Coach Beckham doesn't
believe in shortcuts in his
own personal life. So he
doesn't allow the kids to take
them. He preaches one earns
what he gets. When he wants
a play run a certain way, he
will not accept any shortcuts
or taking the easy way."
In the same understated
manner with which he was
simply doing his 'job of
developing young adults
by patrolling the sidelines
at Bronson's gym, those
who have played a role in
the Eagles' program will be
present at the celebration.
Michael McCaskill is at the
top of the list of those people
who will be at the ceremony
as the host. McCaskill served
as the school's principal
during Beckham's early years
at the school.
A reception at Bronson
High School's gym will
follow the ceremony. He is


doubt he was born to coach
basketball at Bronson High
School and use it as the tool
to develop young men into
adults.
His faith and conviction
of hard work, taking
responsibility for one's
actions, pursuing something
of value with fervor and doing
it the right way has made him
a fixture on the sidelines as not
only an extremely successful


COACH KELLY BECKHAM and his Bronson Eagles.


so commended that players
from as far as Port St. Lucie
and Atlanta are expected to
attend.
Among the highlights
expected to commemorate
the achievement is the
presentation of a basketball
inside a globe shaped holder,
which has the signatures of
his former players and t-
shirts for his current athletes
to wear during warm-ups.
"For starters, I have been
very fortunate and blessed
that this community is
so supportive of me and
the basketball program,"
Beckham said. "Of course, I
am proud of the milestone and
the fact that in order to reach
it one has to be a successful
for a long time, but I have had
my share of very good ball
players too.
While Beckham is the man
in the forefront, Beckham
would have no thoughts
that the accomplishment
is anything but a team
effort, which starts with his
coaches.
Knight might officially be
the Eagles' assistant coach,
but he has been Beckham's
right hand man for 22 years
now. His other assistant
coach, Kenny Thomas,, has
been with Beckham for 13
years and oversees the junior
varsity program that produces
those good players.
"I believe success starts
with hard work," Beckham
said. "I think we laid that
foundation and the success
we have had is based on
that. I believe early on, the
assistants and myself worked
harder and longer than other
teams and it got the things
rolling.
"We set high expectations
which were based on that idea
of hard work and it required
discipline. The coaches who
have been with me were a big
part of everything that has
happened at Bronson. The
coaches and myself have been
a team and the precedence
we set in the early going
definitely was an example of
why those 500 wins is a team
effort."
In addition to the 500 wins,
the Beckham era has included
state runner-up teams in


1989 and 2002, nine district
titles, over 15 state playoff
appearances, two players
on the 2002 team finished
their careers among the top
five scorers in the state of
Florida, a 72 division I-A
game winning streak in the
regular season and a majority
of the athletes moving onto
the college level.
In 1991, the Eagles
graduated six of their top
seven players. Nonetheless,
they finished the next season
with a 28-4 record and made
a run to the final eight in the
state tournament. The season
included a 105-90 victory
against Miami Killian in a
holiday tournament.
Miami Killian was at
the time the largest school
in Florida with over 3,000
students and was the state's
overall top team.
As a young man Beckham
played his high school ball
at Ceder Key. He was a
point guard on their district
championship team during
his junior year. He then
went on to Central Florida
Community College.
During his freshman year
at Central Florida after a
discussion with the head
coach, he assumed a coaching
position with the college
team.
When Beckham graduated
from college, his high
school coach, John Delaney,
had moved onto Bronson.
Delaney offered him an
assistant position on his staff
in the late '70s. He then
moved into the junior varsity
team's head coaching position
at Brooksville.
He became a head coach
for the first time at Dunnellon
following his stint at
Brookesville and moved onto

Glade for one year before
returning to Bronson after
Delaney resigned in lieu of
another offer in 1983.
Delaney's influence has
been obvious throughout
Beckham's career. During
his playing days, Delaney
was roughly the same size
as Beckham. On the shorter
side, like Beckham, he made
his living as a defensive,
spirited turnover provoking
point guard. He led his team,
Gainesville High, to their
district's title in 1969.
Beckham's playing career
was defined in the same terms
and his teams have always
started with lock down
defenses that emotionally
spearhead the culture of the
program.
"I have known Beckham
since I was 10 years old,"
Knight said. "In all the time
I have "ki'own him he is or

working. That is the key to his
success. He has worked very

that in mind.
"It is really special how
he goes about his business,

young man. When I first
got into coaching, I didn't
know what to expect. But he
doesn't mislead people. He
is honest and gives you the

of it. His coaching career has
been the same in how he deals
with the players."

Eagles to honor


Coach Beckham

A celebration is planned on Friday. Jan. 12 at the
BHS gymnasium to honor boys' basketball coach Kelly
Beckham, who reached a milestone 5001' Eagle in in

school coaches.
Also honored will be long-time Assistant Coach Phillip
Knight who has been with Beckham for most of his
successful career at Bronson High School.
All former players and cheerleaders are invited to
attend and be acknowledged as being a part of one
of the winningest programs in the state of Florida. A
reception for former Beckham players will be held at 6
p.m. at Bronson's new gymnasium. There will be a short
ceremony before the 7 p.m. tip-off of the boys' varsity
game against the Mayo Hornets.
Former BHS principal from 1983-1994, Mike McCaskill
will be the emcee for this event and looks forward to
seeing many former students and faculty.

Indians get caught in Eagles' talons


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRII'R
BRONSON-The end of
the year marked holiday
tournaments and the chance
for Levy County high schools
to gain valuable tournament
experience, but the new year
kicked off the second round
of cross county rivalries.
The first of these rivalries
occurred when Chiefland
ventured into the Eagles'
nest in Bronson and found
themselves on the short end
of a 47-46 score.
"The rivalry isn't
emphasized as much this
year as in the past, but it is
still a big win for the guys,"
assistant coach Phil Knight
said.
"For our guys it is a
big deal, because they are
young and have never been
in the position of playing
against Chiefland or had the
opportunity to experience the
rivalry. They are also a school
with a larger classification."
And when Jamie Rivers
captured the rebound
following teammate Deion
Thomas' missed free throw,
it was also the first time this
year the Eagles won a game
in which they had a double
digit lead.
"I think we have had
trouble playing with a lead,
because we don't know how
to," Knight said. "But we
figured out a way to do it this
time and that is a step in the
right direction.
"They played smarter,
took better shots and were
much more patient. They
are beginning to understand
they don't need to force the
action.
"We only had one player
with varsity experience when
the season started and the only
way they are going to win is

by learning while they play.
We didn't have the luxury of

what to do in tight ball games.
But we are showing now that

Lady Devils roll over Lady Indians


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
After rallying to take the front end of the 2006-2007 series
last month, the Williston Lady Devils completed the sweep of
cross-county rival Chiefland last Friday with a 63-45 victory.
With the come from behind in the last two minutes of the
game victory last month still fresh in the Lady Devils minds,
they left no doubt as to the outcome of this contest. They
stormed out of the locker room to take an 11-2 lead and never
looked back.
"We came out and jumped on them defensively," Williston
head coach Jason Odom said. "We worked on our full court
press during the break and used it instead of the 2-3 we have
been using. It caused a lot of turnovers."
"I don't think they had a lot of ball handlers who could
handle the pressure of the trap and they threw a lot of bad
passes out of bounds. Our intensity was really high and we
were really ready to play. It was one of the best games they
have played this season as their excitement was really high
too and everyone could feel it."
Odom admitted the cause for such intensity and excitement
was the return to play after two weeks off and the desire to
avoid a repeat of last month's near loss to Chiefland.
Margaret Brown led the Lady Devils with 27 points, while
Jessica Gates cleaned the glass 17 times. Gordon contributed
10 points and 11 rebounds. Brown also chipped in with 9
points.
During the Christmas break the Lady Devils focused on
"getting back to the fundamentals" with high intensity drills
designed to improve ball-handling and passing skills.
Against Chiefland it was apparent not only in their

preparation mentally for the game, but also in the statistic
book. The turnover difference between the teams was in the
double digits and Williston's turnover to assist ration was
3:1.
For Chiefland their inexperience not only doomed them in
handling the Red Devils' press, but in how to use their skills
as well. Odom was impressed with the Indians' talent and
saw some players they could build around, but for now, the
Lady Devils were the better team in all aspects of the game.
Oddly enough the victory is the only game the Lady Devils
have actually played in the last three weeks, despite gaining a
second victory and accruing a loss.
Entering the break their record stood at 7-3. After having
to forfeit a rescheduled game against Hawthorne, the Lady
Devils' record was 7-4. The win against Chiefland upped
their record to 8-4.
They now have a two -game winning streak and a 9-4 record
as Dixie County forfeited their scheduled match-up against
Williston on Tuesday.
More significantly the victory gave the Lady Devils a 5-2
district record with three games left. With six teams in the
district, the top two teams receive first round bye in the first
round and they will be in the all-important bracket opposite
P.K. Yonge.
Their remaining district games are against Ft. White,
Newberry and P.K. Yonge. They defeated Ft. White by almost
20 points in their first matchup. However, their two losses in
the district are to Newberry and P.K. Yonge. Odom attributed
the loss to Newberry to a slow start by the Lady Devils, not
necessarily a problem with the match-up.


Ajay Ulmer tackles job

as new head coach


The Eagles built a 12-
point lead midway through
the second quarter only to
see it disappear in the fourth
period. In fact, the Indians
actually took a four-point
lead with just under five
minutes left. But the Eagles
would not go quietly into
the night and turned on the
defensive resolution as they
regained the lead by holding
the Indians to one basket until
there was only 30 seconds left
in the game.
Bronson limited the
Indians to only one shot per
possession. They were often
low percentage shots as the
Eagles forced the visitors
into long range bombers as
the Indians couldn't get a
good look at the basket. With
the shot clock about to expire
they heaved up the difficult
shots in desperation.
The Eagles continued to
demonstrate the patience
which had been so effective
in them building the original
lead and lulled the Indians
into defensive lapses as they
milked both the game and
shot clocks.
However, at that time, the
Indians nailed a three pointer
from 28-feet to make it a
one-point game. The sudden
uprising by the Indians forced
the Eagles to close out the
game again.
They answered the
challenge by calmly
inbounding the ball and
crisply passing through and
around the Indians' defense
as it was moved from station
to station up the backcourt.
Thomas was eventually
fouled with under 10 seconds
left. He converted the first
of the two free throws before
Rivers got the game- clinching
rebound and ran out the clock
by dribbling into the corner.


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
CHIEFLAND-In 1998,
Ajay Ulmer was right where
he wanted to be.
He was an assistant coach at
Chiefland High School under
the tutelage of Sam Holland.
The school boasted one of the
state's most powerful football
programs. The program had a
run of successive post-season
appearances and final four
berths in the state playoffs. It
was highlighted by the 1996
state title.
In addition, the community
was exactly the kind of place
he wanted to raise his family.
Eight years later he and
Chiefland have come full
circle as he was hired on
as the high school's head
football coach in December.
"When I left I felt it was
time to go somewhere else,
because I wanted to have the
opportunity to pursue my
career," Ulmer said. "But I
enjoyed my time in Chiefland
very much and always wanted
to come back. So, when I
saw the advertisement on the
FHSAA website, I mailed
in my resume and other
paperwork that day.
"Chiefland is the kind
of place I want to raise my
family and live in. It is a
small town community with
enough modern amenities
that I feel comfortable.
Everyone is friendly. And as
far as my career as a coach,
once you're an Indian you are
always an Indian. Chiefland
High School, middle school
and the youth league are all
tied into each other."
Ulmer accepted the
offensive coordinator position
at Melbourne High School in
1999 and became its head
coach four years later. He has
spent the last four years as the
high school's head coach.
While he has yet to
receive film from last year
and begin dissecting the Xs
and Os of the Indians on the
field he is already putting
his fingerprints on which
direction the program will
follow.
As most coaches, Ulmer
sees the off-season as the
period of the year when the
greatest strides need to be
made. And he has begun his
tenure as Indian head coach
by using his energies and
efforts to get as many off-
season activities in motion
so the team will have a
configuration from which to
work from in the fall.
Among the items he is
stressing and is spending
significant time in creating
within the program is a
spring study hall to stress
academics, an off-season
weightlifting agenda as well
as the other conditioning
required, building a structure
for his coaches and players
from which to work from and

creating ways for the team
to enjoy themselves while
spending time together.
One example of the last
idea he has brought with him
is the idea of barbecues after
practices.
The five-person committee
that was formed to find a new
coach was won over by that
exact way of thinking.
"All of the candidates we
interviewed knew coaching,
so we consideredotherassets,"
Pam Asbell, the high school's
principal and a member of
the committee said. "We
saw a man who was energetic
and enthusiastic, particularly
in getting the community
involved and how important
football is to it. But we also
looked at his strengths as a
teacher.
"The recommendations and
other people told us he is an
excellent role model, because
he is a positive person and
has a way of making people
feel good about themselves.
We want to be able to take
pride in doing the right things
for the kids and we felt coach
fits in well with how the
community teaches that to its
young adults."
The coach brings a base
wing-T offense, but he also
throws in plays out of the I
and spread formations from
time to time. He plans on
running the ball about 60
percent of the time and using
play action often.
His defense' is a multiple
front, which shifts between 4-
4 and 4-3 line-ups as needed.
It is the same defensive
philosophy used at Virginia
Tech.
Mark Lundy, an assistant
coach from last year and one
of the school's basketball
coaches, will remain on staff
under Ulmer. The new head
coach has also received a
preliminary commitment
from Brian Gore. Including
the junior varsity team, he
hopes to have a total of eight
coaches for the program.
His first order of business
on the field is to build a better
defense as he puts it "both
personal and coaching wise."
Among his other ties to the
area is family.
"We need to reestablish
a positive attitude," Ulmer
said. "That begins with unity,
both on the, team and in the
community. I believe the
committee was influenced
by my desire to be a part of
the community and use its
resources and the people.
"I know how much football
means here and I can use its
resources and people in a
positive way in rebuilding
the infrastructure of the
program. With my success as
head coach and my previous
time here, I believe I have
something to offer and that
starts with getting excited

decorated with some sort of racing memorabilia, and while
still several miles from the track helicopters began to buzz
overhead. The farmland on both sides of the road was
littered with thousands of campers, tents, and buses. We just
pressed on and boldly made our way right up to the racetrack
itself, where they had advertised a little bitty "first come
first serve" free section of camping. An attendant waved us
to a stop. Heath asked cheerfully. "You got anything left?"
The guy just sort of winced at our gall. "You're welcome
to look," he said nodding towards at least five other cars
leaving unsuccessful. "Okay," Heath chirped and drove on.
One group coming out looked like they had already broken
into their pack of weenies.
After seeing the first row of these poor sardines in that
little camp I was thinking, "We haven't got a prayer."
So I decided to pray. Being the faith warrior that I am I
whispered, "Lord, if we could just find a place to park so we
could sleep in the truck?" About that time a little side road
caught our eye. It seemed to go nowhere, so of course we
tried it. Low and behold, on the back side of a row, almost
under the awning of a big bus, was a nice little miracle spot.
We had it settled and weenies roasting in no time.
The atmosphere was most festive, especially after sunset
when a lot of strange things began to happen. People began
to line the small roads and a lot of hooting and hollering
began to pierce the night. People riding in the back of large
trucks began parading through the campsites, apparently

Lastly, if you are a caregiver please remember that critical
wandering is a life-threatening problem that must be pre-
vented.
Please prepare response plans to prevent the critical wan-

do include registering the person in the Alzheimer's Associa-
tion "Safe Return Program."
This offers numerous preventative suggestions. Safe Re-
turn has materials that can be sewn into clothing to identify
the person.
A bracelet or pendant is also useful. Let neighbors and

seeking to collect some kind of plastic beads. I'm not sure,
but I'm afraid there may have been some sin in the camp.
Thank goodness God had led us to that little spot tucked
away behind that big bus where we ate our weenies. in peace.
Little Noah got to enjoy a wonderfully "G" rated Talladega
night. Heath and I both breathed a sigh of relief.
I say all this just to brag on how well the Lord took care of
us. Obviously the power of Jesus' prayer for His disciples is
still working today. I pray not that thou shouldest take them
out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from
the evil. John 17:15 KJV. We enjoyed perfect weather,
wonderful tickets, safe passage, and safe haven, despite
our total ineptness and inability to provide any of these
things for ourselves. He even hooked us up with a local
Church group holding a wonderful little Sunday morning
service out beside the track. What an honor it was to be a
part of the little wad of worshippers amongst the other ONE
HUNDRED AND SIXTY THOUSAND people in little
Talladega that day!
But anyway, we really enjoyed ourselves. Our favorite
cars all spun out and we didn't collect any plastic beads,
but I guarantee we left with a deeper appreciation of our
wonderful God, and a joy that only comes from seeing His
hand at work in your situation. It's amazing what God can
do with a pack of weenies.
Guy E. Sheffield, of Hernando, Miss., is the president of
the nonprofit ministry SoulFood.


Thank you to all the wonderful
persons who enforce:
"Miracles belong to those
who believe in them. ".

Log Cabin Quilters welcome their friends from the north to meeting


BY WINNELLE HORNE
CoRRISPONDENT
Log Cabin Quitters met Thursday, Jan. 4 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum.
What a joyous day we had when our northern members
have come home for a while. Sarah Small, Dorothy Riggs and
Elvena Davidson along with Evelyn Etheridge got right down
to quilting. It was great to have Joy McCrany back with us,
she makes beautiful children's clothing that we sell.
It was a day for trying to get everything put away, taking


down quilts and hanging the ones we have left to sell. It
takes time as we had more this year at the Quill Show, all
the Christmas crafts that were left over have to be put away.
When everyone helps it doesn't lake long to get it back to
normal.
We are having lots of fabric and whatever for us to use
brought in. So many are cleaning out what they can't use and
we can.
A big load was taken to St. Francis House this week. There
are many coming in from the north, they need clothing and


cover for warmth. This has been a project for us for two years,
we took lots of stocking caps in also.
Our new year has started out great and we look forward to
a wonderful year. Lunch was so good with chicken pot pie,
chicken and dressing, baked chicken, chicken and rice, lots
of vegetables, salads and apple dumplings, Watergate cake,
chocolate cake and so much more.
Twenty-one members and three guests were present.
Winnable Horne is the director of the Levy County
Quilt Museum.
