STAFF WRITER
CHIEFLAND-Chiefland's
fire department will soon add
thermal imaging equipment
to its inventory of rescue
equipment, thanks to a grant
from a city landowner.
Plum Creek Timber
Company, which owns land
formerly held by Georgia
Pacific, gave the city a check
for $10,000 during this week's
city commission meeting.
The equipment will allow
fire fighters to find people in
smoke-filled or obstructed
spaces and to determine other
fire-born hazards.
Tom Gustafson, from
Florida Rural Water
Association, presented
commissioners with water
and sewer impact fee
recommendations. Fees
would be charged only to
new residents moving into the
city, and by law are required
to be used only for capital
improvements.
Gustafson believes a
wastewater treatment plant
will be needed given growth
and the distance of the
existing plant. Such a plant
he believes will cost the city
about $5.2 million. He did
not provide costs for potable
water facilities.
Commissioners set a
workshop Feb. 6 at 5:30 to
discuss the impact fees and
a capital improvements grant
schedule.
Chiefland's recent
annexation was high on


commissionerTeal Pomeroy's
mind Monday.
"I have heard from a few
people who are displeased.
Nobody's more displeased
than I am," he said.
A snag in the annexation
vote caught commissioners
by surprise last month.
Although ballots should
have been mailed only to
property owners within the
area to be annexed, one was
sent to a resident living outside
that area. Of the 11 ballots
returned to the supervisor of
elections, six voted in favor
of the annexation.
City attorney Norm Fugate
told commissioners Monday
that once an election has been
certified, the results are the
responsibility of the county
canvassing board.
He said the city had no
power in this case. "The
county canvassing board
must undo this action," he
said, and added that any
change could be made only
by the canvassing board or a
judge.
In other actions,
commissioners:
Gave planning and
zoning department head Bill
Hammond permission to ask
Wal-Mart for a $1,500 grant
for testing equipment and a
laser measuring device.
Unanimously passed a
first reading of a large-scale
zoning amendment request
from James Hudson.
Hudson wanted to change
nearly 130 acres from

agricultural/rural residential
to.commercial and industrial.
The property lies along U.S.
Highway 27A and CR203
and is in the recently annexed
area north of Chiefland.
Commissioner Alice
Monyei's motion to approve
the change was seconded by
Teresa Barron.


Unanimously voted to
approve a change in the
comprehensive plan to add
a land use category and use
of a ratio to determine actual
build-out area of a proposed
commercial or residential
project. The motion was
made by Monyei.
Heard about Step


Up Florida, a campaign
sponsored by the state and
coordinated by the county
health department.
Participants will be given
healthy snacks, water, and
pedometer. The walk will be
Feb. 23 from 10 a.m. until 1
p.m. at Trailhead Park.

Developers want to control aesthetics


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
WILLISTON-A local
developer wants order
brought to the way homes
are approved by Williston
officials.
Roswell Development
Group's Antonio Duque
appeared before city
council members last week
with an engineering firm
representative to present
his ideas. He is requesting a
temporary moratorium on a
zoning change.
Expressing concern with
the demolition of existing
homes and the influx of
mobile homes in East
Williston, Duque made
his case for strengthening
residential building codes.
He enlisted Walter Brown
of Capri Engineering to
bolster his case.
Brown has provided
building and zoning services
to local communities such
as Cedar Key and Crystal
River, where he spearheaded
passage of an aesthetics
ordinance designed to control
the appearance of structures.
"I wrote the ordinance
in 1999 and it has never
been challenged. It aims to
allow modular housing but
to control the aesthetics by
setting codes on building


features such as roof pitch
and overhang."
He added that the key to an
effective code is to enforce its
regulation equally.
Duque's and Brown's
presentation began a vigorous
debate that involved all of
council, as well as comments
from Police Chief Daniel
Davis and city attorney Norm
Fugate.
When council Debra Jones
wanted to know why the city
should put so much emphasis
on aesthetics, Duque
responded, "Nobody would
want to put their money
where homes are a shambles.
What we need as a city is for
(property) values to go up a
little."
Referring to his focus on the
eastern portion of Williston,
Duque continued that it is "a
weak spot in the city. I keep
going after the weak spots."
Duque said Gainesville and
Ocala wer spreading toward
Williston, and he wanted
to bring investors to town.
He said he was working
with the police and building
departments, and that his
development was going to
happen.
Council member Jerry
Robinson challenged Duque
with a question of residency.
"Where do you live? Some of


these people have been here
years and years. Have you
spoken to the leaders in East
Williston?"
Robinson added he saw
no problem with the code as
presently written.
Duque answered that
mobile homes decrease in
value, while site-built home
values increase over time.
Council member Steve
Holcomb made a motion to
investigate code changes.
Without a second, the motion
died.
Jones said city leaders in
East Williston have made it
clear to her that they did want
council's help in improving
the neighborhood. "Mr.
Duque is right," she said.
Robinson said, "Why
don't we contact them (East
Williston community leaders)
and have a workshop-the
sooner the better."
Police Chief Daniel Davis
contributed to the dialogue
with the observation that
the problems of the blighted
eastern area point to "a far
broader issue. Problems
impact us every day. When I
tried to raise this issue before,
I was told 'No, you can't do
that.' Well, obviously you do

Council passes impact fees; changes office terms

Robinson calls upcoming meeting 'exercise in futility'


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
WILLISTON-Williston's
police department was
boosted by one last week as
council members witnessed
the swearing in of officer
David Deonarine. Before
conducting his swearing
in, Chief Daniel Davis
told council he "could not
hire officers without your
support."
Deonarine comes to
Williston from Orange
County Sheriff's Department.
His addition brings the police
force to 12 officers.
Council member Jerry
Robinson brought up a
meeting scheduled to discuss
terms of city manager James
Coleman's contract.
He said he was bringing a
word of caution to the council
regarding making changes to
the contract.
"In essence it will or should
be an exercise in futility and a
waste in everyone's time," he
said.
He added that members
had already unanimously
approved the contract, and
quoted from the General
Provisions: "The parties by
mutual written agreement
may amend any provision."
Attorney Norm Fugate
agreed with Robinson's
statement.
"It takes both parties to
renegotiate a contract,"
Fugate said.
The council will hold
a workshop to discuss
Coleman's contract Jan. 30 at
7 p.m.
In other matters, council:
Passed a first reading on
an ordinance to institute water
capacity and wastewater
impact fees. The proposed
water capacity fee is $846.

"puppy love." Love without any reservations.
Monday, 9:20 a.m. Well here I come again, right back
where I've always been, in my recliner, where I stay a lot! I
believe this habit will get worse with age, ha ha!
Age? I am an antique now, oh yeah, but antiques are worth
a lot, so there. I'd rather be an antique than just old and
worn and not worth anything!
I have a white stuffed bear that recites the Lord's Prayer
when you mash his paw, so I just reached over and started
him.
As he started to recite my little ones stood at attention
and Sugar Bugger would turn his head and listen trying to
understand a talking bear, as if to say why can't I talk? No, I
haven't lost it, just in my second childhood, ha ha!
But it's great to be loved, even if they are animals, because
they love when I feed them, but also when I spank them, so
there, I believe that is the true meaning of love!
I am going to hush now and take this to the Journal and
try to clean my house today. No, I am not lazy, just old and
worn, so until next week be good, take care and may God
bless each of you.
So says,
Miss Honey

Devils, the game against t
the Chiefland Indians was a
game they needed to secure
a second place finish in the .
final district standings. 4.
With 4:11 left in the first "0A'.
.half, it would have been
hard for one to visualize the !;:
-different season the teams .i.:
were having as the scoreboard '
read 22-22.
Chiefland, for all of its "
issues this season both on
;ind off the court as well as
jits young mindset, started the -
game looking like a team that -
could pull off a huge upset. = i
SWhile Williston, for all of
its disorganization-inducing
style caused by its defensive
_pizzazz and gusto, started
the game with its athleticism
at the bottom of a slow and
indistinct slope.
,,- "For the first quarter and ,
a half we played well,"
;hiefland's head coach held JM- .
onto the ball, made good Si.
decisions and had the lead
through the first quarter and
-at the end of it."
.: With Chiefland's skill level
.nd physical stature not quite
,pp to par with Williston, it .
j~vas only a matter of.time
before the Red Devils found
.he electrical current to get
their game in gear and pull
'Away from the cross county' .
,rivals.
,",.However, for the first 12
-Tinutes it was Chiefland who
.g,.de the crowd take notice as
they matched Lhe iRed Devils
basket for basket and forced
the home team into several
turnovers which led to easy
deuces.
i They slowed the game
,4own to match their skill
and execution level as they
opened the scoring with a
three pointer. Neither team
scored the first three times
they had possession of the
ball.
Williston answered
Chiefland's three-pointer
with a basket and the teams
exchanged baskets until the
second quarter.
The Indians' lead swayed
back and forth between one
,and three points until the 4_-=- OR_
;Red Devils tied it at 18-18 1 t-
iwith 6:40 left in the second
Quarter. Another exchange p1A
of possessions tied the I NM _Rqix
game again, before the eight w

athleticism got into synch and
began to run with fluidity.
It began with Jiwan James'
rim-rocking dunk, which

Chiefland did not have the
skill, physical ability or
experience to handle. The
Red Devils finished the first
half with an 18-9 run and a
36-27 lead.
It featured Kapree Thomas
muscling his way under
the basket to tip-in Deonte
Welch's missed shot. It began
the first of three mini-runs
which saw the Red Devils
score six consecutive points
to close out the half.
The second run was started
by Thomas as well. Once
again he muscled his way
under the basket. This time it
disrupted the Indians' attempt
to get the ball out of their
backcourt. He stole the ball
and in one motion slashed into
the lane and took advantage
of the less muscular Indians
to get a transition lay-up.
"We played good for a
while, but then it was the
same old story," Webber said.
"We committed 18 turnovers
in the first half. Most came
when they made that run to
end the first period. They
put the full court press on,
we panicked and threw the
ball away or gave it to them.
They scored easy baskets in
transition.
"We are deficient in
rebounding. They got the
rebounds and began to build
a lead. They drove through
the gaps in our zone defense
in the third and ran numbers
on us. We just don't have the
bench or numbers. And two
of our players fouled out."
The Red Devils throughout
the season have beaten the
teams they have played with
lesser records and fallen to
the teams expected to go deep
into the playoffs.

the latter is true, is still out, on

this night, despite their slow
start, they made sure there
would not be any conversation
regarding a change in the
former statement.
Williston made sure there
would be no losing to a team
with a lesser record as soon as
the second half started. Two
second half baskets in the
first 30 seconds swelled the
lead to 4-27. Those baskets
ended the Indians prospects
of a rally as they.ballooned
into a 10-2 run which made
the lead 17 points midway
through the third quarter.
James once again slammed
home the exclamation
point during the run. The
lead would get as big as 22
points.
C.J. James was the game's
leading scorer with 18 points.
Jiwan James added 16. Lester
Jackson dropped 26 points
for Chiefland.
The Red Devils upped
their overall record to 13-
6 and their district record is
6-2. They finish the season
with district contests against
Ft. White, Newberry and then
end the season against state
power, Eastside and cross-
county foe, Bronson.
Chiefland's overall record
fell to 3-18.

since 2002. The program has
compiled a total of six wins
since that time.
With such difficulties
over the last four years, the
program has decided to give
up its status as a class 1A-
District 2 member and play
as an independent team for
an undetermined amount of
time.
"It was a decision made
by a group of parents,
administration, players and
coaches," head coach Greg
Brochetti said. "We had a
meeting and at the time, it
was decided we were just not


wlm inaepenaent status ana
build the program up."
Among the teams the
Eagles played against in their
former district were Mayo
and Hawthorne. The Mayo
Hornets held the number one
spot in the class 1A polls for
most of the past season.
Hawthorne advanced to the
class regional finals. Their
playoff run included a 21-17
victory over the team that
defeated the Hornets, Port St.
Joe.
Another difficulty was the
number of the teams in the
district. With seven schools
competing in it, it is one of


ell aisi6L CtL.
In order to build up the
program and the players'
confidence that they can
compile season records,
which indicate they were
competitive, the Eagles need
to increase their win total.
"It will give us a better
opportunity to win games,"
Brochetti said. "We will
match-up better with our
opponents and we think it will
be to our advantage to play as
an independent. It has been
frustrating."
The 2007 season schedule
is expected to be completed
and released this week.


Indians take three losses in week

Newberry 65
Chiefland 32
Record: 3-14 (overall),
0-6 (district)
When the Indians have all
their players inuniform, their
numbers are smaller than
their opponents. But on this
night, with the suspension of
two players for violations of
team rules, they took to the
court with only six students
in uniform. Things got worse
for the Indians as Tommy
Sheffield hurt his ankle and
had to leave the game only
two minutes into it.
They fell behind early in
the game to a team contending
for its district title and it only
got worse from there. The
Panthers ran numbers on the
depleted Indians sending in a
complete unit of five players
in regular intervals and went
to the line over 20 times.
The Indians failed to get
one free throw attempt.
While Chiefland would have
had to play a near perfect
game to beat the Panthers
to begin with, they shot
themselves in the foot with
the usual ailments of bad
decisions, turnovers and
weak rebounding.
Chiefland 04-07-11-10---32

Dixie County 64
Chiefland 58
Record: 3-15 (overall),
0-7 (district)
With the return of Sheffield
from his ankle injury and the
two suspended players, the
Indians for the first time -in
almost a month had the full
complement of its roster.
It didn't look like it in the
early going, but they rallied
and with the clock closing
in to under a minute left in
the game, found themselves
behind by a score of 58-56.
Then on two consecutive
possessions they turned the
ball over as they stepped out
of bounds. With no other
course of action possible,
they fouled the Bears. Dixie
County made all six of its free
throws in the final minute
and Chiefland's season long
nemesis, turnovers, caused
them to fall once again.
Ironically, it was Dixie
County's turnovers that got
them back into the game in
the first place. Falling behind
22-7 at the end of the first
quarter, the Indians forced
several turnovers which led
to easy transition scores.
Coupled with the hot
shooting of their wing men,
the Indians outscored the
Bears by three points in the
third period and had a 23-10
advantage in the final period
before the final minute. The
wing men found the range
from three-point land and
the Indians managed the
basketball and clock well to
cut the lead to two.


Just as 'Dixie County's
free throw shooting won the
game for them, Chiefland's
contributed mightily to the
loss. They made only 9-20
free throws.
Chiefland 07-12-16-23---58

Union County 65
Chiefland 38
Record: 3-15 (overall),
0-7 (district)
The Indians once again got
off to a slow start and rallied
to get back into the game.
Hanging around as the third
period got underway, the
slick and pinpoint shooting of
Union County's point guard,
Terrence Young, ripped
the Indians and propelled
a second half surge which
buried the visitors.
The Valdosta State recruit
torched the Indians with
inside and outside shooting
as he scored more than the
entire Chiefland team in the
second half.
The coaching staff tried
several different defensive


combinations onYoung, using
both man-to-man and zone,
only to have the same result.
Young's size, quickness and
execution presented all kinds
of match-up problems for
the Indians as they failed to
present any blockades for the
point guard.
Once again, the Indians
played good pressure defense
and rotated well on offense in
generating high percentage
shots and easy scores to get
back into the game.
They also improved
their free throw shooting
connecting on 11-17. But
the Indians faced the familiar
proposition of digging
themselves out of a hole after
the first period.
And Young took advantage
of it to close out the game for
the Tigers. Physically tired
and overwhelmed by the
one man wrecking crew, the
Indians scored only six points
in the fourth quarter.
Chiefland 08-16-08-06---38

Benny Parsons was true to himself


To most racing fans
of the last two or
three generations,
Benny Parsons was simply a
broadcaster who knew a lot
about racing, NASCAR and
food, because he had been
doing it for a long time.
However, my first
memories of him were a
proud, fierce, tough and we
don't take the easy way old
school racer of the '60s, '70s
and '80s.
During his time behind the
wheel, the racing world was
even more rough and tumble
than the sport of football can
be.
The Richard Pettys and
Mario Andrettis of his time
stood out because of their
intense competitiveness and
their desire to overcome
humble beginnings to be the
best at what they did.
The same was true of
Parsons, but his character
not only was one of steel
determination forged by the
factors of the time in which
he raced. It was meshed
with what everybody said
about him when he died
last week, a unique human
side he wasn't afraid to let
everyone know about.
And the true genius of
Parson's life was that he
carried it throughout all his
years in everything he did
and accomplished.
I never met him, but
listening and watching
him for all those years,
first as a racer and then as
a broadcaster who had the
same passion for the sport


that I did, made me believe
he was talking to me as a
friend and part of his family.
In the 10 or so days
since his death, the one
common overriding theme
of everyone's thoughts about
him was simply, a person
didn't have to be a driver or
someone he knew previously
from NASCAR to benefit
from Parsons' bounty of
friendliness and generosity.
That could also be true
for those who were never
blessed with the opportunity
to meet him, because through
the vehicle of auto racing he
touched my life.
His character first touched
me as an example as a child
struggling to find himself,
then as a young man looking
to make a name for himself
and understand how to use
his ambitions positively and
now as a person who has
some life experience..
In previous opinion pieces
I have pontificated about
the heroes and people who
I look up to as role models
in my life, but I will always
remember Parsons for
always being true to himself.


In interview after
interview and on his
talk show on the Racing
Performance Network, it
was obvious he was a wealth
of knowledge, but he was a
superb storyteller.
In that way he made me
feel comfortable to accept
who I am and that part of
being human is having faults
as well as my strengths.
He had the background
of overcoming a difficult
upbringing to rise to the
1973 championship and
then the top of motor sports
journalism.
In so many ways his story
was like other racers of that
era who I have adored for
most of my life.
He talked openly of
growing up in the mountains
of North Carolina and being
looked after by his great
grandmother, Julia Parsons,
after his parents moved to
Detroit to find employment.
They lived in a house
built in the 19th century.
It had no electricity, no
electricity or running water.

dent John Hoblick of Volu-

during the AFBF annual
meeting last week in Salt

nation's largest agricultural
membership organization,
with over six million family
members.
Delegates adopted several
polices in line with Florida
Farm Bureau's recommen-
dations. The 366 delegates
from across the United
States voted overwhelm-
ingly in support of com-
prehensive immigration re-
form that improves farmers'
timely access to legal farm
workers. Another Florida
Farm Bureau priority that
was included was the addi-
tion of specialty crops in the
2007 farm bill.
Delegates were in favor
FFBF's resolution for the
exclusion of pests and dis-
ease through the implemen-
tation of better inspection
of imports and cooperation
between the Department
of Homeland Security and
USDA Animal and Plant
Health Inspection Service.
AFBF also adopted the cit-
rus canker policy recom-
mended by Farm Bureau
members. This policy sup-
ports the development and
