Former administrator's

husband blasts SBLC

Asks for wife to be

reinstated with full benefits

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Nathaniel "Nate" Terrell Jr., husband of former school
employee Juanita Terrell, appeared before the school board
Tuesday on his wife's behalf.
"I speak as a concerned citizen of Levy County," he said,
continuing that by not renewing his wife's contract, he
believed a "grave injustice" had happened.
Juanita Terrell was a 20-year employee of the school system.
Sixteen of those years were spent teaching and the other four
were in administration. In her last capacity, she was assistant
principal of Chiefland Elementary School.
Terrell asked board members to reinstate his wife, since a
circuit judge had recently ruled in her favor.
The Eighth Circuit Court commanded the school board
to reinstate Ms. Terrell to classroom teacher status with full
benefits and back pay by a writ of mandamus signed Dec. 20.
Such a writ is issued to command governmental agencies to
comply with policies already in place.
School board attorney Sheree Lancaster advised the board
to make no comments since an appeal had been filed.
In other matters, board members learned that Chiefland's
gymnasium and Williston's cafeteria projects should both be
completed by the end of May.
The tennis courts being built at Williston High School will
be usable this season, which begins at the end of January.
Board member Frank Etheridge expressed concern that
more money was being spent at the old Bronson High School
than should be. "We need to be looking at ways to save
money," he said.
The old school is the site of Hilltop Alternative School.
According to administrative superintendent Jeff Davis, the
facility use stands at about 20 percent.
"One wing is used all day for instruction," he said, "and the
cafeteria for about three hours a day." The gymnasium is also
used on certain days, according to Davis.
The 2006-'07 school year is the first the alternative school
has a "bricks and mortar" home, according to Davis. Classes
were formerly conducted in portable classroom along
Highway 27.
A formal cost analysis will be made at the conclusion of
one full year at the new site, or August-September timeframe,
he added.
Superintendent CliffNorris did not attend the Jan. 16 school
board meeting.
His mother had died a few days previously. Donna Brooks,
Norris' secretary, said that he would be back at work Thursday,
Jan. 18.
She added that those wanting to donate to Norris' mother's
memory could send them to the Levy County School general
scholarship fund.

Property rezoned to accommodate growth


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
CHIEFLAND-One local
land owner is seeking a
zoning change for a large
chunk of land behind Wal-
Mart. At least one Chiefland
commissioner had different
ideas.
Glenn Bryan appeared
before last week's
commission meeting
to request a large-scale
amendment request for his
property.
"I always intended to not
put anything you would worry
about there...I wouldn't want
to stick dirty things there,"
Bryan said. He added that
his vision for the property
includes "shopping center
and restaurants."

Pomeroy had a different
vision in mind.
"What about a distribution
center?" he asked. "I don't
think distribution centers are
a bad industry. A lot of jobs
would be involved." Pomeroy
has long championed the
cause of bringing such a
center to Chiefland.
Bryan's request includes
the rezoning of 150 acres
from the county designation
of commercial and industrial
to highway commercial.
Such a designation would
allow his property to be
sold to developers seeking
to build retail stores and/or
restaurants. The property is
at the intersection of CR 320
and CR 341.
'Commissioners cleared
the way for Bryan to move


forward with his plans with a
unanimous vote of approval
on this, the amendment's
first reading. The motion wag
made by Teresa Barron and
seconded by Rollin Hudson. '
Other land changes
considered by commissioners
included:
First reading of
a small-scale land-use
amendment request by Harry
Hutson, Sr.
Hutson asked for a zoning
change on an eight-acre
tract to allow building a
subdivision with one-half
acre lots. The property is on
the east side of Northwest 70'"
Avenue. The reading passed
unanimously after a motion
by Teresa Barron and second

Influenza doesn't bother Justin Ivey


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
Most of us dread winter for
the pesky little bug known as
the flu.
Fifth grader Justin Ivey, a
student at Chiefland Middle
School, did not get caught by
influenza this year. It came his
way during last Thursday's
spelling bee. He heard it,
pronounced it and spelled it
correctly, winning the district

spelling bee title.
Twelve students from all
over the county competed.
They represented fourth
through eighth grades.
Every speller successfully
spelled their first round
words-something not done
in recent years, according
to moderator and official
pronouncer Jeff Davis.
Davis is the school board's
assistant administrative


superintendent.
The competition's second
round eliminated four
spellers, as did the third. After
the fourth round only Justin
remained. However, he had
to go into the fifth and final
round before being named
champ.
Justin is the son of Jason
and Sheila Ivey. He competes
next in the regional spelling
bee in Tallahassee Feb. 24.


The bee will be televised live
on WFSU, Florida State's
Public Broadcasting Station.
Both Justin's mother and
great-grandmother attended
Thursday's event.
"He gave me the best
birthday present I've ever
had," great-grandmother
Maude Durden said. Durden
turned 80 the day after the
spelling bee competition.


Quilters readying for Tampa


BY WINELLE HORNE
CORRESPONDENT
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Jan. 11 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was
a great day in spite of trying
to put the butterfly quilt in
the frame. Sometimes we
wonder if tops don't get hard
to handle as this one did. But
after several times to unroll
and roll we got it in the frame.
Sarah, Dorothy and Elvena
started the quilting and we
hope all goes well.

Superintendent gala


is Feb. 3

The Ley Counts Schools Foundation (LCSF)
will host its seventh annual Superintendent's Gala on
Saturday, Feb. 3. The e\ent, M\hich includes dinner and
musical entertainment, will take place at 6 p.m., in the
Bronson High School cafetorium.
The gala is the premier find-raiser for the Levy
Count3 Schools Foundation, a not-for-profit organization
established in 1989 to support Le\-, County schools. The
event has become a Levy County tradition, providing
an opportunity for members of the business community,
civic leaders, and local residents to gather in support of
local education.
The past six galas have raised over $60,000 to
support a \ariety of education-related initiatives and
help the foundation expand its mission.
"The gala not only raises funds for the foundation."
said Superintendent Cliff Norris. "but also showcases the
talent of our students, and highlights the generous and
continuing support of so many corporate partners, as
well as local residents who want to ensure our students'
academic success." Norris will serve as master of
ceremonies for the event, as he has done since the gala's
inception.
The theme of this year's program is "An Evening
in Paris." and the musical program will reflect that with
students from local schools performing with music with
an "Accent Francais." Student artwork will also be on
display, in tribute to the famous sidewalk art displays of
Paris.
Another gala tradition will be continued by students
of the Williston High School Culinary Arts program,
who will cater the dinner under the direction of teacher
Earleen Williams.
During the past decade, the foundation has distributed
thousands of dollars in scholarships, with over $40,000
awarded in the past year alone.
The proceeds of the 2006 gala will help the
foundation support the LCSF Levy County Star Scholars
mentor/scholarship program, a pre-paid Florida tuition
program for deserving students, as well as a number of
other projects, including the New Ideas in Classroom
Education (NICE) Grant program. This program helps
teachers develop innovative educational projects tailored
to their students' needs. This past year, the foundation
awarded $6,000 in NICE GRANTS.
Over the past few years, the foundation has actively
pursued several grants, and this past year.received state
matching grant funds for literacy education totalling
$24,905. In addition, funds for classroom grants were
awarded by Citigroup (S1,200), Progress Energy ($1,000),
and Sunceast Schools Federal Credit Union (51,260).
For the third year, Progress Energy Corporation
-proided- a $15,000 giant to the Foundation for
scholarships for teachers who wanted to earn additional
certifications and instructional aides seeking college
degrees.
GFWC Williston Junior Woman's Club awarded
a total of $4,600 in grants to Williston teachers for
classroom projects this past year.
The foundation has established three contribution
levels for the gala. All donors will be recognized at the
event. The levels are:
Gold table patrons for contributions of $1,000 or
more; silver table patrons for contributions of $500 to
$1,000; and bronze patrons for contributions of $250 to
$500.
Gold patrons receive eight complimentary gala
tickets. Silver patrons receive four gala tickets. Bronze
patrons receive two gala tickets. A limited number of
individual tickets are available at $50 each.
Seating is limited. To become a patron, or reserve
tickets, contact gala reservations coordinator Tami Wain

OPINION

Really, spiders


are our friends

_'. piders have always been with us. They are an
ancient source of fear and fascination. They are
abundant and widespread, and like bats, are one of
-" the most important links in the regulation of insect
populations throughout the world. Wherever you live, you
are never far from a spider.
Spiders are ancient animals that have been on this earth
for about 400 million years; they were among the first spe-
cies to live on land. There are approximately 40,000 species
,of spiders that have been identified by taxonomists, and
because many others have not been identified and classified,
it .is believed that up to 200,000 species may actually exist
worldwide.
Spider bodies have two parts, the By RONN GINN
head and a plump abdomen. All spi-
ders have eight legs and no ears. Most Guest Columnist
spiders have eight eyes. Spider blood
is light blue, filling up all of the empty
spaces in the body and keeping legs stiff so the spider can
crawl. Many spiders live for only a year, but some can live
much longer. Spiders live in many different kinds of places
in the water, in our gardens, everywhere in our homes, and
in underground areas that may be wet or dry, hot or cold.
Some spiders are poisonous and some are not, but they all
eat insects and small animals.
The most common species of spiders spin webs from their
bodies called capture silk. Some make funnel-shaped webs;
others make sheet webs, and still others make the spiral
webs that are most commonly associated with spiders. After
spinning its web, the spider will wait on or near the web for
the prey to become trapped in it. The spider can sense the
struggle of its prey by vibrations along the web lines.
While all spiders are predatory, they consume only liquid
foods. As soon as a spider makes contact with its prey it will
generally attempt to bite it. But, since it cannot chew, nature
has given it a tiny mouth to use as a drinking straw to suck
up the liquid parts of its prey. The spider first dissolves the
insect's internal tissues by inserting digestive fluids in the
prey, and then feeds on the digested liquid. Any part not ab-
sorbed is left in the web, sometimes an attraction for another
victim.
Most spiders are unlikely to bite humans because they do
not identify us as prey. However, when touched or pinched,
they will inflict a bite about as painful as a bee sting. No
spider will intentionally come toward you, but all should be
removed from your home to avoid accidental injury. Killing
spiders ,% ith poisonous spray would remove one of the natu-
ral links to thetulatio..of. minsectpoppuations. Like bats,
they are really our friends -in the balance of nature.
By the way,t& ii'dy Long Legs 's not a spider. ...and nei-
ther is Spider Man.

Your View


Let Tallahassee hear you on state of hospital's future


To the editor:
Recently I submitted a letter to area newspapers relaying
to you that it was time for action in reference to the Florida
Agency for Health Care Administration's (FAHCA) denial
of the Certificate of Need (CON) for the proposed Tri-Coun-
ty Hospital. (For a complete review of FAHCA's denial,
reference the following web site: http://ahca.myflorida.
com/MCHQ/CON_FA/Batching/decisions.shtml -- click on
the August 2006 Cycle, and go to CON No. 9936.)
As I circulated among the communities of the Tri-County
Area, the response from you was overwhelmingly positive as
you concurred with my thoughts. Many of you asked what
you could do to help. And so, the "time for action" has now
become the "call to action." Simply stated, the call to ac-
tion is to write, e-mail, or call your governor and legislators
whose contact information is provided below. If you believe
the establishment of a hospital in the Tri-County Area is
important to your personal welfare, your family, and com-
munity, then I encourage you to write, e-mail, or call them
- prior to the next legislative session which begins on March
6, 2007, and share the following:
I support Ameris Health Systems in their efforts to appeal
the recent decision of the Florida Agency for Health Care
Administration denying a Certificate of Need for the, pro-
posed Tri-County Hospital that will serve Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Levy Counties. I am a tax-paying citizen who wants my
voice to be heard, and I want my legislators to know that the
need for a hospital in the Tri-County Area is warranted. If
an attempt for resolution through the appeals process is un-
successful, I respectfully request that you explore what steps
need to be taken in the form of legislative action to rectify
this situation.
In closing, the prolific American writer, John Haisbitt
(former executive with IBM and Eastman Kodak and former
Special Assistant to President Lyndon B. Johnson) has been
quoted as saying, "The new source of power is not money in
the hands of a few, but information in the hands of many."
Fellow citizens, for a mere $3.51 in postage to write your
governor and legislators (or no cost for email or a phone
call), you can make a difference. You have the information
now what will you do?

Anticipating great things for the Tri-County Area,

Use the Internet with caution
Hello everyone and welcome to this week's Sheriff's
Corner. I'd like to change the direction this week to add to-.
a topic we "sort of' covered a number of weeks ago. That
is the Internet and what is happening there at this time. The
reason for the change has to do with the increasing criminal
element found there.
One of the largest areas where criminals, ZN
including sexual predators and criminal
gangs like the Bloods, Cripps, MS13,
KKK, Outlaws, Hells Angels and more, are
organizing is MySpace.com and YouTube.
com. The potential that young people are
unknowingly coming in contact with these
people is very possible. It's very easy to take
advantage of the child and ultimately leam JOHNNY
the child's identity and location. SMITH
In fact, one in every seven children was
exposed to unwanted sexual solicitations on the
Internet. One in every three youth was exposed to unwanted
sexual material. This happened even when blocking filters,
and monitoring software was in place. One in eleven youth.
were harassed online. In addition, off-line acquaintances
accounted for fourteen percent of online solicitation and
harassment. We have also learned that approximately 67
percent of offenders who commit any type of Internet sex.
crime against minors possessed child pornography.
Statistics say that the majority of offenders were white ,
males older than 25 and that they were acting alone. 39
percent of all Internet sex crime arrests are crimes against, .
identified victims. It's estimated that 36 percent are for
Internet child pornography purposes.
There are arrests. About 25 percent of arrests are Internet.
solicitations made to undercover law enforcement. Currently,
we hope that law enforcement activities and subsequent
arrests are growing in the Internet crime areas.
I hope everyone has a great week. Take care.

the '60s from Gainesville to
Cedar Key, that was a long
route, but I met a lot of good
people on that paper route
and enjoyed my work.
Those were the days. I was
a lot younger then and my
mom went with me on week
days, only delivered in the
morning on Sunday and my
mom rode with me Monday
through Friday, there was no
newspaper on Saturday back
then.
We collected on Saturday.

delivered in the afternoon

Until next week I'll say

smiling.

Papa hadn't actually
specified what side of the
bayou I should turn around
on, so I crossed on over.
While there, shielded by that
thick tree line, the thought
hit me, "What would it hurt
if I let loose for a couple
hundred yards? Shucks, it
might not take but just a few
seconds. They can't see me
from the barn anyhow."
My little brother Heath,
who possesses a memory
like a hypnotized elephant
on truth serum, still likes to
tell it from his perspective.
"The moment that bonehead

pleading as I
climbed atop
that big red International
farm tractor. I was about
to argue, but I noticed my
grandpa wasn't paying her
no mind, so I decided not to
either. If Papa said it was a
go, it was a go. This was his
farm and her complaining
would only harden his Italian
resolve. I even detected a
faint hint of satisfaction in
his voice as he said, "Keep it
in da first gear der boy, just
down to da bayou and back."
Momma was turning red.
"He can't be trusted daddy!"
she cried, exasperated. I
feigned a conciliatory smile
her way, winked at my little
brother Heath, and popped
the clutch on big red; leaving
them all choking in the delta
dust.
Chances are mom stomped
off mad, but I never turned to
look. It was important Papa
know I was keeping my eyes
on the road. If I could muster
some maturity here I might
get a free run of the tractor
this summer. I veered clear
off the turn row just thinking
on it.
It was scarcely a quarter
mile to the bayou, but I soon
grew extremely bored with
just puttering along in first
gear. Even a patient man can
only take so much. I was
hankering to idle her up and
rip through the gears and
see what this baby would
do. This slow bobbing along
stuff was putting me to sleep.
By the time I reached the
bayou I was asking myself,
"What are rules for anyhow,
just to hold a man down?"

Red Devils put the pressure on Dixie County'


Bears


BY NEAL FISHER
SwnO ''S WRvI I
1/9
Williston 68
Dixie County 50
Record: 11-5 (overall),
5-1 (district)
Coming off of their fourth
place finish at the Kingdom
of the Sun Tournament and
starting the new calendar
year, the Red Devils did what
they were expected to do.
In the tournament they
beat the team that was not
expected to advance deep
into the playoffs and lost
to those who were. The
trend continued against
Dixie County as their full
court offense and defensive
pressure game wore the Bears
down.
The first quarter saw the
teams exchange the lead as
the Bears had little trouble
in dealing with the Red
Devils' pressure defense and
answered almost every of
the home team's baskets. It
ended with the Red Devils
holding a 16-15 lead.
A couple of 4-0 runs at the
beginning and in the middle
of the second period gave the
Red Devils some breathing
room.
And with the Red Devils
going to their bench, it
came in handy as far as
keeping control of the game.
However, the Red Devils 14-
5 run to end the half was not
enough to put the Bears away
as the score stood at 32-23.
But the run was a
foreshadowing of the second
half as the Red Devils forced
four Dixie County turnovers
during the span. The Red
Devils' ball-hawking defense
caused the Bears all kinds of
trouble getting command of
the ball and Williston was
there to clean up the disorder.
Long passes and lay-ups
resulted from the defensive
pressure.
It took another full quarter
before the Red Devils could
put the game away, but the
third quarter was littered with
the same scenerios as Dixie
County on two occasions cut
the lead to four, only to have
the Red Devils go another
mini-run and reestablish their
lead to 10 and 12 points.
The last run by the Red
Devils was a 7-0 run to end
the third and start the fourth.
It blossomed into a 15-4 run
which was too much for the
less athletic Bears to answer.
Worn out and physically
drained from trying to stay in
the game with runs, the Red
Devils' pressure finally got
to the visitors as they took a
45-36 lead with 6:39 left in
the game. They made it a 13
point lead, their biggest of the
game at that point, with 3:47
left.
It was a prototypical Red
Devil victory, starting off
slow against a non-playoff
game, continuing to get
stronger as the game wore on


team with no quit as they
rallied from a large deficit to
make a go at the victory. The
rally was propelled by their
pressure defenses causing
turnovers and easy baskets in
transitions.
But the Red Devils fell too
far behind to overcome the
initial start of the game as the
Blue Wave held a 31-13 lead
midway through the second
quarter.
They used the same
tactics as the Red Devils in
taking advantage of James'
absence as the visitors lost
a significant portion of their
height and quickness.
The Red Devils never had
the lead and were looking
at an 8-0 deficit before they
scored their first points.
Nonetheless, the Red
Devils showed they could
play with the perennial state
power, scoring six of the last
eight points of the first half.
They then cut the lead to 41-
34 late in the third quarter on
the strength of senior guard
Todd Brown's six points
during the eight-minute span.
But the Blue Wave, on a
night when it was obvious
they weren't playing their best
ball, showed a championship
spirit as they answered
Williston's challenge.
They took advantage of the
fact the Red Devils hole was
so big, they could not afford


DIXIE COUNTY muscled their way to a 7-0 lead in the early going against Wil-
liston, but their rebounding would drop off in the second half as the Red Devils
frenetic defense left them with few opportunities for inside position.


and then pouring it on as the
game drew to its conclusion.

P.K. Yonge 62
Williston 51
Record: 11-6 (overall),
5-2 (district)
After losing to the Blue
Wave by over 30 points in the
season's second week, this
was supposed to be a test of
sorts for the Red Devils.
The problem was, neither
team was at full strength
as several key figures 'were
missing and it was reflected
not only in the crispness of
play, but also in the feel of
the game.
Jiwan James was in Arizona
participating in a baseball
tournament and head coach
George Miller was absent


due to health issues.
P.K. Yonge senior
swingman Myk Brown, a
Virginia Commonwealth
signee and third-team all-state
honoree last year, played less
than five minutes because of
health issues and was a non-
factor. He netted only two
rebounds and did not score.
His coach, Mark Griseck,
was present, but recovering
from the same issues which
sidelined Miller and Brown.
And with that background,
the state's two top 10 ranked
teams in class 3A-district 5
put on as non-descript a game
as possible for two programs
accustomed to long playoff
runs.
The game showed what is
already known about the Red
Devils. They are a mature


DIXIE COUNTY'S offense did not have the horses to keep up with the Red Dev-
ils' speed on defense once the game settled into a rhythm.


COMING OFF their fourth
place finish at the King-
dom of the Sun Tour-
nament, Williston's full
court defense picked up
where it left off against
Dixie Coynty as the
Bears were forced to
take two steps backwrds

The teamwork starts before the first ball is bounced



Eagles' coach Kelly Beckham honored for 500 career wins


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
Twenty-three years ago,
Bronson's first year head
basketball coach Kelly
Beckham walked into the
Eagles' Nest for the first time
as the program's new leader.
Since 1984, he has done it
over 1,000 times, but when the
coaching staff led the Eagles
onto the court once again
last Friday, Beckham and his
coaches were asked to take a
seat and enjoy the rewards for
their accomplishments.
It was unlike every other
night when they primed
their team to present to the
community the prize ofhaving
an opportunity to watch and
enjoy a well-played game
and eventual victory.
As a buzz and electricity
built and fulfilled the Eagles'
Nest, the words "quality
accomplishment" became
the focus of a night rare in its
purpose and ambiance.
For while everyone came
to acknowledge Beckham's
milestone of 500 victories,
they also celebrated their
hometown personalities
accomplishing it faster than
any other coaching staff in
the state's history.
"I came, because I wanted
to see someone who achieves
and gets to celebrate a
milestone," Mike Todd,
a former assistant coach
and director of secondary
education for Levy County
said. "When someone reaches
a milestone, it is because they
have meant a lot to the sport
they coach.
"For Beckham though, it is
beyond Bronson basketball.
It is about what he has meant
to the young men he has
coached and spent time with.
He has taught them about
life and affected others who
didn't play for him."
The celebration reflected on
the coaching staff's coaching
and leadership style.
Several tokens of
appreciation were placed
at a table, and with the
same straightforward and
uncomplicated manner, were
presented to them under the
basket on the north side of
the court.
S In the same spirit of
Beckham's self-effacing
style of leading and winning
without making the game
about him, both current
principal Valerie Boughanem
made her opening remarks
and then Mike McCaskill, the
principal of the High School
from 1983-1994, emceed the
15-minute event.
It followed an hour-long
reception for former players
and coaches.
Phillip Knight and Kenny
Thomas, Beckham's long-
time assistants, were singled
out with honors and stories.
Then the other former coaches
who served under him were
honored.

BRONSON'S HEAD Eagle: Kelly Beckham and some of the people who sup-
port his winning ways.


While Beckham is the man
in the forefront, Beckham
has 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.
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."
Among the playful
moments of the celebration
was McCaskill testing
Knight's memory of the
Beckham era. Knight
answered several questions
regarding specific dates,
players and scores without
hesitation.
McCaskilllistedBeckham's
accomplishments ranging
from basketball to his job of
teaching young men. His
comments regarding those
accomplishments included
the 23 years of service to the
high school and community.


The average stay for a
coach at the high school level
is a few months above five
years.
His comments also
included Beckham's tour de
force as a role model to the
players as well as those who
know him. McCaskill also
discussed his 71 percent
winning percentage, nine
district titles and two trips to
the state finals.
The former leader
eloquently acknowledged
with pride as the principal of
the school where the magic
happened that Beckham
has achieved great things,
including the reputation
of Bronson basketball and
the young men it produces,
because of the basic values
he teaches.
His comments made perfect
sense in lieu of his decision
to hire a relatively unknown
commodity in the first place
after the ceremony.
"I had hired 20 or so
coaches, so I think I had a
good feel for what made
good coaches and from the
moment the interview started,
I knew he had it," McCaskill
said. "And by the end of the
first week, I knew it was the
right decision. He showed
intensity, dedication and a
strong work ethic. After
I hired him there was no
holding back.
"He has pride in himself
and the facilities he manages.
That has carried into all
aspects of the program
and the school's feeling
.towards it. He understands
how to handle each player
individually. Where they are
and what they need to get to
the next level and knows what
buttons to push. He makes
kids believe in themselves
and work hard."
Beckham's reputation
also entails his care for his


players beyond the court and
creativity in teaching them.
"He works on ways to
get the kids to the next level
andt basketball 12 months a
year," McCaskill said. "He
is a voracious reader and was


always telling me about the
latest books written by the
great coaches he had read.
"Then he would apply
what he read and come up
unique ideas to improve the
Eagles' game. Around 1987,
he showed me this apparatus
he had built to improve
jumping abilities. He took
the time to design it and built
it himself. The next year
their jumping abilities were
greatly improved.
"He would also clean the
facilities himself to set an
example and because of the
pride he had. He wants to
make this school the best
and will do whatever it took.
Everything at the school
benefits from his example."
Beckham has also put his
fingerprint on the school as
a physical education teacher
and its athletic director.
Working with McCaskill and
enlisting a partnership with
the school's booster club
when his tenure began, the
athletic department went from
. being approximately $9600 in
the red and an increasing debt
every year to a surplus of over
$2000 in just two years.
I am proud he got the
milestone and was honored,"
Jerone Greenlee, who played


for Bronson from 1993-1995,
said. "I am proud to be a part
of the milestone. He works
his players hard, because
there is no substitute for
doing what we are supposed
to do. He wants everything
done precisely, because he
wants things done the right
way.
"He doesn't want shortcuts
to be taken. He won't break
his own rules to win and he
doesn't let anybody slide
when it comes to them. If
Michael Jordan played for
him,. he would treat him
like any other player. That
is what taught us about life.
The coaching staff at Bronson
knows their stuff and they
know how to do their job well
as coaches and teachers."
Among the lesser-known
accomplishments of the
coaching trio is an undefeated
and two one-loss seasons at
the junior varsity level.
In reaching the milestone
faster than any other coach,
the Eagles can also lay claim
to an average of roughly 22.2
victories per year during the
Beckham era. It is believed
only two other coaches in the
state's history have reached
500 victories.

opportunities to get ready for

With nothing to gain from

pace of the game.
Amber Aguirre scored the

the game. She scored off
a free kick as she used her

the ball over the goalie and
aiming it towards the back ,of
the net. She scored from 25

second half off of a turnover

for the rest of the half with a
combination of passing and
quickly clearing the ball out
of their half of the field.

The regular season career
of eight seniors came to an
end in the most disappointing
of fashion.
Playing their fourth game
in six days to close out the
season, the Lady Devils
started the game the way
they ended their previous
contest. They looked strong
and controlled the game with
their passing game. They
broke out in front in the 27th
minute when Kaitlyn Guinsler
found the back of the net with
a well-crafted tumbling shot
that whipped itself parallel to
the net.
St. Francis's goalie could
not bring the ball under
control and its momentum


cuased it to squirt under her
and over the goalie line.
The Lady Devils'
conditioning had gotten better
since their first game after the
break, but it was not as strong
as it been. Taking advantage
of the heavy load of games to
end the Lady Devils' season,
St. Francis ran two offensive
drives to Williston's half of
the field. The first time the
result was two quick passes
which ended on the foot of
Jane Ryngaert.
The quick passing moved
the Lady Devils out of place
and behind the ball and
Ryngaert had a breakaway.
She beat Williston goalie
Sandra Garcia to her left
to score the winning goal.
The second run ended with
three quick passes which
moved the ball to within 20
feet of the goal on its right
side.
Jane Ryngaert fielded the
last pass after the Lady Devils
defense overplayed the ball
and in one motion lifted a
rising shot which zipped into
the goal to score the winning
goal.
Despite the sting of losing
three of their last four\ games,
the Lady Devils finished the
regular season with:, their
first winning season in the
program's history.


AS THE FINAL minutes ticked off of the eight seniors' careers, including co-
captain Kaitlyn Guinsler, who were on the field, the Lady Devils could not quite
muster that one goal which would end it with gusto.


bTHE LADY DEVILS ended the season with fourl
games in seven days and it showed as they failed
to control the ball as often as they had before the
break.

Difficult losses might be key to second half run for Bronson


BY NEAL FISHER

With three consecutive
victories following
the Bronson Holiday
Tournament, the event seems
to have been a significant
elixir for the Eagles.
"We didn't do as well as we
thought we could or wanted
to in terms of victories, but
we improved with each
game and got a lot of good
experience playing with the
lead," assistant coach Phil
Knight said.
"After losing the two
games, we got experience
playing in tight games and I
think we understand how to
hang onto those leads in the
final minutes, because they
were both very close. We
started the year with two wins
and showed an understanding
of how to use the pace of the
game to our advantage in
holding the lead."
The Eagles held onto
leads of two points against
Chiefland and five points
against Branford to start the
new year. They won their
third straight game against
Bell while the lead fluctuated
between eight and 12 points
for the entirety of the second
half.
The Eagles still benefited
from the sting of falling twice
as they built double digit
leads during all the contests
the played in.
"We held leads in all three
games, so I think we played
well as far as our competition


level," head coach Kelly
Beckham said. "We came
out of the tournament feeling
we have a chance to compete
for the district title, because
the guys showed they had a
better understanding of how I
want them to play.
"They are making strides
and now I think we got some
of the experience we needed
at the tournament. It was
painful to make some of the
mistakes we did, but with
us playing in that type of
atmosphere it will teach the
guys what they need to do to
make a run at the district title
and in the post-season."
The Eagles district record
now stands at 6-2 following
the three consecutive victories
to start the new calendar year.
Their loss, however, came
against Mayo.
It was a distressing loss,
because, along with Trenton,
they entered that particular
contest tied with Mayo for
the district lead. With the
loss last Friday, they dropped
to second place in the district
and fell to 9-10 after they
reached .500 for the first time
this season.
While the district title
aspirations that Beckham
spoke of took a big hit with
the loss, it is still a possibility.
They conclude the district
season with games against
Chiefland and Trenton this
week. However, -they no
longer control their own
destiny and need outside
help.

SINCE ITS holiday tournament, Bronson is honing its experience and develop-
ing how to play better in tight games.


Nonetheless, playing
both Chiefland and Trenton
for a second time is a huge
advantage for the Eagles as
they have the opportunity
to make adjustments and
once again they have the
experience they lacked in the
first match-up. Also, both
games are at home.
After winning its first game
against Dixie County, 48-26,
the Eagles suffered perhaps its
most heartbreaking loss up to
this point of the season in the
semifinals of the tournament.
Held to only three points
in both of the game's middle
periods, they fell to Westshore
in the final four. They led by

11 points at the end of the first

They then fell to Trenton

game.
They also had several
defensive breakdowns caused
by poor execution of its full
court press in which the
players did not properly rotate
when the Tigers crossed the'
time line. The result of those&
miscues was several easy
transition baskets during the
deciding stretch of play.
"I think those losses will
really help the kids gain


confidence," Beckham said.
"Once again being in the
situation of playing for a
championship and needing
to win to advance gave our
guys the chance to learn how
to do certain things. When
we built those leads, we got
experience in learning to do
those things and we used our
talent and skill.
"They played well in
building those leads. It gave
them the confidence to do
those things. Basketball is so
much a game of confidence.
Building those leads will help
the kids with keeping it. Since
the tournament, we did win
those three games, because
we were taking better care of
the ball, being more patient
and using the time-score
situation to our advantage."
In the three victories
following the tournament,
the Eagles built double digit
leads and then held off their
opponents when they made
rallies. It is not unusual
for teams to make rallies
after falling behind, but it is
the three items of play that
usually determine how the
team with the lead fairs for
the rest of the game.
The team specifically
showed signs of better
passing, cutting through
the lanes without the ball
and boxing out during the
tournament and the Eagles
have come on strong in those
areas in their three victories
to open the second half of the
season.
They have led to a very
proficient improvement in
the Eagles' inside scoring
and the rotations, which cost
them so dearly during the
tournament.
Beckham, who is also the
tournament organizer, was
impressed and pleased with
thel0th version of the event.
It lived up to its reputation
from the outcomes of the
game and how they were
won to the environment it
produced.
The tournament might
feature a skills competition in
the future.

Lady Devils' district finale derailed


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
For the Lady Devils, it
was all so simple. A win
against Ft. White in their
district finale and they would
be guaranteed a finish of no
worse than second place in
the district's regular, season
standings.
Their district-winning
streak would have become
four games, giving the team
a winning record in district
action for the first time in the
program's history and even
putting them in a position to
win the district title.
Since the state playoffs take
the district champion and the
runner-up for each group, a
second place regular season
finish would have been huge
for the Lady Devils in their
quest to qualify for their first
post-season appearance in the
state tournament.
Adding to the mix, after
having already lost to Ft.
White the first time they met,
the Lady Devils needed a win
not only for the above stated
reasons, but also to avoid
being swept by the Columbia
County school and making
the series the significant
failure of their season.
But for as good as it all
sounded, the impetus, which
had spurred the Lady Devil's
drive to get into that prime
position, never came to the
forefront due to circumstances
of their making and beyond
their control.
The circumstances started
with the two-week layoff
during the break between
semesters.
"We looked like a team that
hadn't played in two weeks,"
head coach Max Aguirre said.
"Our conditioning was off. It
doesn't take long to lose it and
we played tired and flat. We
wanted to play hard, but we
just didn't have the physical
ability to hustle the way we
needed to win this kind of
game.
"The only way to stay in
condition during the break is
to participate in tournaments
and we just aren't in that
position yet."
The team also took the field
without five of their starters.
Among those who did not
walk onto the field was goalie
Sandra Garcia. In her stead,
Roxanne Kraus, who is in the
eighth grade, made her first
start.
Then there was the detail
that the second opportunity
to knock off the Columbia
County school took on a
completely unexpected
leaning as it concurred with
an ominous weather system.
In a game where the
conditions of the storm made
the most basic act of playing
the game stop and go for the
entire 8.0 minutes, mounting
some semblance of avoiding


the same type of play became
a key element.
In fact, the storm did
actually make the game a stop
and go ordeal as a 35-minute
delay midway through the
first half occurred due to
lightning. After the game
resumed, the Lady Devils'
play was just as soggy in its
stop and go feel as the on and
off again rains had made the
field.
While the rains contributed
to the game itself being
a stop and go affair and
subsequently challenging
the teams to overcome it, Ft.
White also took advantage
of it in another way as they
coupled it with their style to
gain maximum efficiency in
using their skills and negating
the Lady Devils advantages
in key areas of talent.
"They play what I call
crunch ball," Aguirre said.
"They try to physically stack
up a team by stopping them
below the waist. With the
younger girls in the game,
they had trouble handling
it, because the game itself
doesn't really lend itself to
that style. So, they haven't
had any exposure to it."
With the game taking on
such an unusual leaning the
Lady Devils' passing was the
key to the stop and go feel of
the team's performance.
The Lady Devils'
performance manufactured
portions of time and surges
where clean crisp passes
produced the ability to
maneuver within open areas
of the field as they entered Ft.
White's territory.
But more often than not,
they found themselves
blocked from being able
to penetrate close enough
to mount a serious scoring
threat as Ft. White pressed
them to the outside of the
field and trapped them into
trying to push the ball through
their defense with a smaller
amount of players.
The Lady Devils'
movement often came to
a quickly grinding halt,
leading to the inability to get
into a flow of matching-up
vigorously on defense during
the subsequent change of


possessions.
In the meantime, Ft. White
did enough to take advantage
of Williston's general
untailored play.
Both of their goals came
after Williston gave up the
ball just past midfield and
never got totally settled into
their physical assignments on
defense.
They did it with strong
passing through the middle
of the field and capped off the
scoring plays by finding the
forward with an open shooting
lane inside the goalie crease
as Williston's defense sagged
too far to the opposite side of
the field for them to catch up
with the passes.
Ft. White scored the
game winner on a free kick
in the closing minutes of
the first half. Due to her
inexperience, when Krause
set the customary wall in
front of her to block the free
kick she didn't give herself
an area to see the path of the
ball. By the time she saw the
rising corner directed shot, it
was too late.
The third goal came when
one of the Lady Devils'
defenders tried to drop the
ball back to Krause. The
defender placed the ball in
the running lane of one of Ft.
White's forwards and Krause
herself, did not realize what
her teammate was doing.
The forward ran into the
ball in full stride a chipped it
over the goalie to secure the
victory.
Amber Aguirre tied the
game at 1-1 shortly after the
game resumed as she found
the back of the net off of free
kick from 25 yards out. It
was another of her trademark
boots as the ball rose into
the rain soaked skies of the
night and drifted behind the
defense until it found enough
height while looping to make
it impossible for the Ft. White
goalie to touch it before it
crossed the goal line.
The loss dropped the Lady
Devils district record to 3-3,
but more importantly they
will now face Ft. White for a
third time this season in the
first round of the playoffs.

North Marion 39
Record: 10-4 (overall). 5-2 (district)
After kicking off the second haltfofhle season
and the ne\\ calendar year \\ith an impressive
victory over cross-county and district rival
Chiefland. the LadN De\ils took care of
business by claiming their second momentum,
spiking and thereby inducing victory in as
many attempts as they primed for their last
three district games.
North Marion kept the game close and
even led after the first period b\ an 8-7 score.
Unlike several of their pre\ ious games, the Red
Devils defense and rebounding were strong
from the start. The problem was their shooting
percentage was not as good as it needed to be as
the ball was simply not rolling into the basket
after touching the rim.
Despite the trouble with -getting the rolls."
'their defense methodically and bit-by-bit
overwhelmed the North Mlarion attack until
it was completely slowed down to the point
where Williston was getting two more offensil e
possessions for every one of theirs.
The results began to take root in the second
period as the Lady Devils outscored North
Marion by a 19-8 count and then put the game
away in the third quarter with a four-point
advantage.


During the holiday break, head
coach ilason Odom stressed and
%worked the players hard on their free
throw shooting. It paid dividends in
this 'ame as the.\ had their best night
at the line, connecting on 15-21 shots
and kept the Lady Devils scoring
\hcen the ball wasn't falling. North
Marion \\as onln 2-10 from the line.
T'hic' also were able to take twice
as many shots and outwore North
Marion with their conditioning as
their pressure defense once again
created a deluge of turnovers and

Bronson 54
Branford 48
Record: 8-9 (overall), 5-1 (district)
After finishing two consecutive holiday tournaments with
fourth-place finishes, the Eagles won their second consecutive
game to start the second half of the season. Like the holiday
tournaments, they built a 12-point lead in the second quarter
against district foe Branford and then held off the visitors for
the victory.
Branford cut it to a two-point game midway through the
third quarter before a 6-2 mini-run by the Eagles re-established
their lead at six points. The deficit see-sawed between six and
10 points the rest of the way. Coach Kelly Beckham attributed
Branford's run to hot shooting.
His team counteracted the visitors' gains with improved
ball handling and by avoiding losing possession of the ball,
which is a significant part of the players' having a healthier
understanding of how to hold leads late in games and better
free throw shooting.
Overall, coach Beckham feels his team's strong start to the
second half of the season as a good sign they will be ready
for post-season play as strides have been made every game.
That is particularly evident with their rebounding and getting
better at taking good shots.


However, the team needs to continue to improve its field
goal percentage. They shot only 7-31 from thlie field in the
first half and Beckham acknowledged it is impossible to put
together a Iclead that will open up a strong lead with poor licld
goal percentage.
While the team is only 8-9, it is 5-1 in the district and
another sign of improvement is winning four of its last six
games.

Record: 9-9 (overall), 6-1 (district)
After a long difficult road, the Eagles reached the .500
mark for the first time this season as they extended their
winning streak to three games. More importantly, the victory
raised their district record to 6-1 and set up showdowns with
Lafayette and Trenton on successive Fridays. Those contests
will decide the regular season championship of the district
and seedings for its post-season tournament.

attempts as they built a 36-22 lead at halftime.
The team spent time in practice on their set shots. Getting
their feet set regularly was the key. With the shots going
down, it opened up the middle of the paint for Bronson.
The Eagles' defense produced several turnovers and
subsequent points as they looked like a team that knew how
to use its quickness and strengths with intensity.
However, for the third consecutive game, Bronson held
onto the lead as their decision-making was particularly strong
in the closing minutes.
Bell made several mini-runs, cutting the Bronson lead down
to as little as six points, but the Eagles answered every time
while milking the clock.
Point guard C.J. King's leadership was invaluable as the
Eagles held onto the ball for over half of the final period. The
turnovers Bronson did commit were around Bell's basket
making it difficult for the visitors to get easy baskets.
Bell's turnovers were in their own zone and they were
converted into easy deuces. They were particularly efficient
in killing the remaining time in the game when the clock
dropped under three minutes as the Eagles held the ball for all,
but about :25 seconds during that span.

Record: 11-4 (overall), 6-2 (district)
After tuning up with their victory over North Marion, the
Lady Devils embarked on their three game stretch which
would detennrmine their seeding in the district tournament. The
Lady Devils raced out once again to a 31-16 lead at halftime.
It was business as usual as their pressure defense and inside
rebounding were the keys. The defense created a number of
turnovers as their opponent had trouble handling the ball in
the face of their sideline trap.
With their big lead at halftime, the Lady Devils were able
to avoid foul trouble deciding the outcome of the game. With
four players in foul trouble in the second half, Odom was able
to use his subs to "steal minutes." He would not have been
able to substitute so freely if they did not have a big lead.
The Lady Devils were particularly strong in their offensive
rebounding, creating second and third opportunities and con-
verting them. into points.


It was their second game against Ft. White this season.
They defeated them by a 53-27 score in the first match-up.
This game resembled that one as the Lady Devils ran out to a
large lead in the previous contest and used their defense and
offensive rebounding to dominate the less skilled Ft. White.

out the week with Intqrlachen. The Lady Devils two district
losses were to Newberry and P.K. Yonge.
Odom used the break to change their 1-3-1 press from a
half court trap to a three-quarter trap. It has been effective,
in their three wins since the break and will be needed to slow,
both opponents down.
"We lost by two points to Newberry after coming from
more than 12 points down in the first half and by nine at half-
time. We just didn't get off to a good a start. We didn't get
back on defense and gave up between 12 and 16 points off
easy lay-ups because of it. We definitely could have won that
game, but we just didn't come ready to play. We made goo4
adjustments in the second half, but we were too far behind. ',
"We fell just short and any number of things could have
given us the win. Against P.K. Yonge it is a lot simpler. We
need to slow the game down with our defense and work the
ball up to half-court and change the game from a full courq
transition game. We have to dictate the tempo and avoid get-
ting into a running game, because they can go 13 or 14 play-
ers deep."

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL THURSDAY, JANUARY 18, 2007 Page 19
Continued from page 7


nothing came out. He just
pointed for me to park it.
This certainly wasn't the
fanfare I had expected.
Where was everyone at'?
Didn't momma owe me an
apology'? As I drove past 1
noticed Papa's big bushy
eyebrows were gnarled and
hanging at a strange angle. It
seemed vaguely familiar, like


some sort of deja vu all over
again. As I hopped down he
yanked off his big leather
belt and it all suddenly came
flooding back to me. Those
were the same brows I'd
seen the day I'd bonked him
on the head with that big dirt
clod. Uh-oh!
Why do we think we've
gotten away with something


when we think no one's
looking? Like our secret
activities don't register on
the. sowing and reaping
chart? I couldn't even hide
from an old man a quarter
of a mile away behind a
tree line and a monster pair
of eyebrows! What would
make me think I could


pull one over on God, who
even discerns the thoughts
and intents of our hearts?
Nothing in all creation is
hidden from God. Everything
is naked and exposed before
His eyes, and He is the one
to whom we are accountable.
Hebrews 4:13. We'd do well
to just learn to keep things
real with the Lord. There's


really no such thing as a
secret to Him.
But anyway, thanks to
praying grandmothers and
a fast pair of Converse, I
survived the wrath of the
zesty Italian. I never did
get free run of his tractors
thought. Later he even
welded a piece of metal on
the gear box of his riding


lawn mower to keep it in
second gear so I wouldn't cut
his yard on two wheels; but
of course, that's completely
another story.


Guy E. Sheffield, of
Hernando, Miss. is the
president of the nonprofit
ministry SoulFood.

gutters for drainage since the
crowned road and retention
pond would be adequate
to handle water run-off.

approve.

no vote was based on her
concern over lack of drainage

would not be given if there
was not satisfactory access
for fire equipment to get in
and out of development.

Hammond

wants to rethink

proposals

Building and zoning head
Bill Hammond thinks the
city of Chiefland should
change the way they
consider proposals for new
commercial and residential
development. He brought his
request-and comprehensive
plan amendments-to
commissioners during their
Jan. 8 meeting.
The proposed amendment
will add a new land use
category, low intensity
commercial, to the current
comprehensive plan. The
category provides a reduced
amount of developed area
allowed, and is meant to
provide planners and other
staff with a strengthened
means for reducing
stormwater and groundwater
impacts.
The new code is based on
the amount of impervious
surface,.or area with building,
sidewalk, parking lot or other
built surfaces a development
will actually contain. Such
surfaces cut down on land
available to absorb rainwater,
adding strain to gutters and
drains.
Ifit passes, the low intensity


commercial category will be
used for businesses engaged
in the sale, rental and
distribution of products or


performance of services. The impervious surface area
floor ratio will be limited to 40 allowed, floor area included,
percent, or just under half, of will be 60 percent.

Commissioners will
consider the amendment
during their Jan. 22 meeting.


Pioneer tells tales of life way back when

The good old days
weren't always so good.
Besides the blessings of
life less complicated, the
inconveniences and hazards
were plentiful.
Levytown pioneer
Elizabeth Highsmith-also
known as Toni Collins, a
local historian and master
story-teller, brought the
good old days home to
patrons of Chiefland's
Luther Calloway Library
Saturday. She vividly
described the life of an
1848 settler to the new state
of Florida.
Collins wove news
stories gleaned from
old copies of the Levy
County Journal with land,
marriage and cattle records
from courthouse archives
to bring the settler woman
to life.
Elizabeth, an actual
flesh-and-blood Levy
County resident, was the
great-great-grandmother
of modem-day resident
Sammye (Swilley) Hart.
Both Elizabeth and
husband Isaac are buried in
Levyville Cemetery.
The Friends of the
Library coordinated
Saturday's presentation.
They are planning several
more events in 2007, and
are actively soliciting
members. Information on
joining the group, as well
as upcoming programs, is
available at the library.
