BY JAMES CORBIN
SPECIAL T0 1'111- JOURNAL
Youngsters of the Farm
Friends 4-H group met for
their regular monthly meeting,
but there was nothing regular
about it.
The meeting was held at
the home of Charlie Lloyd, a
well-respected horse farrier.
Lloyd gave a wonderful
explanation to club members
about the importance of
taking good care of horses'
hooves. He then used his
own pony to demonstrate the
process he goes through with
each horse on an average day
of work.
Members of the club
gathered around, watching
intently and listening closely
as Lloyd pointed out the
structure of the horse's hoof,
the tools he uses to trim and
clean them, and the step-
by-step process involved in
trimming their feet.
Volunteers could help him
trim his pony's hooves as
he gave his talk. Many of
the 4-H members had never
seen the process before and
enjoyed seeing and hearing it
firsthand.


Afterwards youngsters
drank hot chocolate and
nibbled on cookies while club
business was attended to.
It was announced that
Jonathan Benge will be
showing the club's hog,
which is growing quickly.
Club members giggled when
they heard their hog was on
a diet, which included a daily
walk.

Last year the club's hog just
missed the weight restrictions
and the club is very optimistic
about raising a champion this
year.
County events were
discussed as well as additional
Suwannee River Fair events
the members could enter.
Packets of Home Economics
Rules and Guidelines were
distributed and kids seemed
excited to have so many
opportunities to show off
their talents.
The next club meeting will
be held at Mrs. Hiers' house,
where members can see their
club hog, have their pictures
taken and provide updates on
their projects.

Physical play snakebites Red Devils at classic


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRI IER
Playing in their third
high profile tournament this
season, the tale of the tape
indicated once again that
Williston's athleticism alone
will not propel them past the
state's elite teams.
In losing to the Trinity
Catholic Celtics during the
Diamondback Classic by a
score of 77-45, all seven of
Williston's defeats have now
been at the hands of teams
who made long post-season
runs last season and are
expected to do the same this
year.
And those defeats are
the same. Williston was
overwhelmed by the
opponents' ability to play a
physical style, which allows
for a strong inside game on
both offense and defense.
"They are very deserving
of the ranking," head coach
George Miller said. "They
are very fundamentally sound
and very good. But it isn't just
that, they are very physical
and make teams play on their
face. They jump in a team's
shorts right away. They wear
teams down and can change


defenses according to their
scoreboard situation in the
game."
Starting with multiple
players having a height and
weight advantage, the Red
Devils simply could not do
anything to slow down a trio
of Celtics from the inside
and Trinity's game plan went
from there.
The Red Devils entered
the game ranked No. 8 in
Class 3A, but failed from
the beginning of the game to
get any of their "bread-and-
butter" high percentage field
goal attempts offtheirpackage
of pressure defenses.
Against the state's sixth
ranked team in class 3A,
the Red Devils were held to
only 16 field goals, despite
attempting 51 shots. They
also turned the ball over 16
times, accounting for at least
a dozen and a half of the
Celtics' points.
Running into a hot team
with the experience of
defeating a top-10 team was
also a millstone for the Red
Devils. The Celtics picked up
where they left off following
their victory over third-
ranked Mount Dora earlier in


the week.
The Red Devils' only
scoring in the opening stanza
came from inside lay-ups by
C.J. James, Jerrell Hopkins
and Kapree Thomas and
Omar Foxworth's two free
throws.
But it was night and day
for the Celtics, as they scored
their first 14 points on inside
moves.
"We couldn't have thrown
it into the ocean," Miller
said. "We are not a physical
team and they took away our
quickness and speed with
their picks and movement."
Despite their inadequacies,
the Red Devils were trailing
by only five points, 14-9,
as the first quarter drew to
an end and the possibility
of getting its athleticism-
inspired style of game into
gear still existed.
However, the Celtics,
sensing the Red Devils' spirit-
persevering belief in their
athleticismwas strengthening,
rambled off a 13-2 run which
effectively put the outcome
of the contest to rest.
When the squeaking of
the athletic footwear rubbing
against the wood of the court
caused by Trinity's physical


shake-'em down style of play
began to die down, hindsight
indicated Sean McMurray's
two three-pointers began
and steered the Celtics' run.
After McMurray scored the
last two baskets of the first
period, Trinity's Antonio
Allen filled in the voids and
finished off the job.
He muscled his way
underneath the basket to
connect on a lay-up. Then
he showed his versatility by
positioning himself outside
the paint and launched a
successful three-pointer. He
ended the run with his second
inside lay-up of the period.
The six-minute period,
which lasted over portions of
the first two quarters of the
game, gave the Celtics a 27-
9 lead.
Allen finished the game as
its high-scorer with 20 points.
Matt Sauey and Josh Jones
each contributed 15 points
apiece. With the Celtics'
strengths in high gear, Allen
had an extremely efficient
night connecting on nine of
12 field goal attempts.
Sauey and Jones also fueled
the breakaway physicality
with 11 and six rebounds
respectively.


Following the run, the
Celtics broke out to a 19-
point halftime lead. Sauey
made sure the Red Devils
would not be able to get
into a position to challenge
them in the second half. He
scored 13 points and pulled
down all of his rebounds in
the third and fourth quarters.
Trinity Catholic's physical
vision allowed them to take
a page out of the Red Devils'
playbook with an abundance
of high percentage field goal
attempts.
They found the range on
34-of its 62 field goal attempts
and took care of the ball in the
face of Williston's pressure
defenses, committing a
meager total of four turnovers
at the end of the first three
quarters.
Furthermore, Trinity's
physical play accomplished
its mission of slowing
down the players that are
responsible for igniting the
Red Devils' game plan, Jiwan
James and Todd Brown.
James, Williston's leading
scorer, accounted for only
nine points as he was
constantly ambushed on
his way to the basket by the
physicality of Trinity. His


final totals read three field
goals made out of a rather
low number of nine attempts.
The same was true of how
Trinity handled Brown, whose
assist total was under five.
Jerrell Hopkins led the
Red Devils with 10 points.
"The best way to beat a press
is to get the ball inbounds
and get the offense moving
up-court right away," Miller
said. "Then the defense
doesn't have time to gel.
That is what they did with us,
because they were physical.
They set picks so they could
move the ball up-court.
"We gave up the baseline
and it became a sixth man
for them. We also need to
get better at the free throw
line. Physical teams make
them weaknesses for us,
because we don't have the
fundamentals to handle them.
During the off-season we will
work on them."

Red Devils claim back to back wins

1/23
Williston 70
Ft. White 54
The Red Devils took
another step forward toward
a first round bye in the district
tournament with their 70-54
victory over the Indians. Once
again, Williston's athleticism
was used to force turnovers
and wear the opponent down
as they bolted to 36-21 lead at
halftime.
The Indians stayed close
with the Red Devils through
the first quarter, but a 13-
4 lead in the second period
gave the visitors a decided
advantage. They did not
allow the Indians to execute
any part of their game plan in
the second half and relegated
it to being the post cursor for
the first 16 minutes of the
game, which set the tone.
It was the same story for
the Red Devils as it took
almost a quarter for their
full court pressure defense to
come alive and spark the rest
of their game plan. Once it
came to life, the Red Devils'
athleticism was too much for
the less dynamic Indians to
deal with and it efficiently
wore them down with each
possession.
The Red Devils gained
control by causing a series
of successive Ft. White
turnovers, which led to easy
high percentage baskets and
slowed down the Indian
attack from the beginning to
the end of the second stanza.
The Red Devils' odds of
victory are very good when
they get three players scoring
double digit points. With
Jiwan James, Carl James and
Kapree Thomas all scoring
in double digits and leading
a balance offensive attack
which saw nine players
score, the statement came to
fruition.

Williston 92
Newberry 84
Record: 16-7 (overall)
8-2 (district)
With the opportunity to
clinch the second seed and a
first round bye in the district
tournament, the Red Devils
stormed to a 15 point second
quarter lead against the
Panthers.
They then held off the
hard-charging Panthers in
the second half to secure
the extra night of rest in the
district tournament.
Fortunately for the Red
Devils, their district finale and
the outcome of the precious
second seed was being fought
against a team they match-up
well with and have beaten 10
of the last 11 times they have
met.
Duringthe past 11 meetings,
the contests between the Red
Devils and Panthers have
been back and forth. This
time though, it was the Red
Devils flexing all of their
muscles and bullying the
Panthers into turnovers and
gaffes during the first half.
Led by Jiwan James, the
Red Devils soared to a 53-39
halftime lead. Todd Brown
scored a season high 25 to
give Williston the potent 1-
2 punch which knocked the
Panthers down for a standing
eight count, while delivering
his usually steady assist total
of seven. Among Brown's
potency was 3 three-point
baskets in the first half. He
finished with four treys for
the game.
The Red Devils also had


a potent 1-2 punch in the
rebounding department as
Jiwan James teamed with
Carl James to grab seven and
six rebounds, respectively.
But Xavier Woods, who
scored 27 points, including a
perfect nine conversions in as
many attempts from the foul
line, rallied the Panthers in
the second half. His pair of
free throws with 3:24 left in
the third made the score 56-
51, but a 7-0 run by Williston
stopped the run cold and left
Newberry with little time to
regroup.
However, led by James' 16
points in the final quarter, the
Red Devils scored just enough
and when they needed to as
the score bounced between
a deficit of six and twelve
markers the rest of the way.
James also ignited the Red
Devils in the first half as he
scored eight points during a
second 10-2 quarter run which
extended the Red Devils lead
to 15 points.
They also held the Panthers
other leading scorers, Walter
Hunt and Guy Brown to 12
and 11 tallies respectively.
While their free throw
shooting was so-so, Williston
made several baskets from
the charity strike during the
final stretch to prevent the
Panthers from getting on a
run.
The Red Devils finished
13 of 24 from the line.
The Red Devils also caught
a break with the absence of
Antwan Ivey, who is out for
the remainder of the season
with a hand injury.

For all


its hype, Super Bowl


significance is still simple


time in 1975. I was only five and as was
the case for many things in those days,
I didn't quite understand everything that was
going on. However, I did understand what was
big and important to America and the Super
Bowl was big.
In the ensuing years since then, as is often
lamented by many people involved in the
media, I have seen the Super Bowl grow from a
big sports related game into a national holiday.
In fact, on some levels it has become bigger
than many of our traditional holidays.
After all, just like Christmas or Thanksgiving
there is the all day blitz of radio and television
coverage. It starts early in the morning and
runs long into the wee hours of the following
day as every talking head, radio station and
television channel dissects and examines the
game from every angle and aspect.
And just like Christmas and Thanksgiving
it is a star studded affair capped off by the
musical world's biggest names.
I understand all of the hubbub and grandeur
is good for business. People who normally
would have no interest in football or the NFL
for at least a week pay attention to our world
and spend money.
There is also for us a certain sense of
recognition due to the NFL and the game itself
in how much it has grown with the celebrity
names and the glitter of winning during an
experience that is as much for the fans as it is
for the franchises.
But for all of its glory, pomp and
circumstance it is to us who follow football
regularly still a game decided by traditional
means and played with the backdrop of the
long-established culture of the sport. Or at
least, that is what it is supposed to be. .,.,
I don't think the founders of the game
started it with the intention of every sports .;,
journalist and talking head being an important
complement to the contest.
Nonetheless here we are on the week of the
Super Bowl reading, listening and watching
every last morsel of information that one could
possible think of as we do every year. It is
now as much a part of the game as the actual
playing of it.
To me though, it is still very simple.
Football and the NFL for all of its talk,
planning and tactical schemes is still won with
straightforwardness and basic essentials.
For all of what the 'big game' has become, a
powerful running attack and strong defense still
wins ballgames. The team that can physically
wear the opponent down and push the other
squad backwards wins. Speed is a powerful
compliment to the previous statement. And the
team that takes care of the ball wins.
It doesn't get any simpler than that and once


again, for all of what the 'big game' has
become, those principles are part of the
culture. As are the teams who advance to
the big game.
Only six teams out of the eighty
franchises who have participated in the
game have been in the NFL or American
Football League for less than forty years.
When one thinks of the NFL they are the
teams that come to mind.
And accordingly, this year's match-up
is like almost every other one. Loaded
with tradition and history, the Bears
and Colts are two of the league's oldest
franchises. On the field, the game is a
match-up of defense vs. offense.
So, after all the regular season games,
playoff contests, storylines and possible
combinations of participants in the 'big
game', my thoughts are the same for
every Super Bowl.
The match-up always lends itself to
the culture of the NFL, both in what the
franchises have meant to the NFL and in
how they play game.
And for me, while I enjoy the coverage,
I have but one simple thought about this
year's match-up that matters to the game
and what it should be.
Who else besides the Chicago Bears
and Indianapolis Colts would be the
logical choices to be added to the list
of why those thoughts usually come to
fruition?
The two teams that should be playing in
the Super Bowl will meet this Sunday and
it will be decided by the most traditional
of match-ups, offense versus defense,
which is the way it usually is.
Speaking of the Super Bowl, it seems
the lineage ofouriously insignificant
Squ estions andjclichds has become as much
a part of the pre-game festivities as the
parties and shows.
Doug Williams was asked in 1988, how
long he had been a black quarterback.
Only minutes after the media began
having an opportunity to ask questions
this year, one of the Bears was asked
what movie he watched during the team's
airplane flight to Miami.
In another one of the fine customs that
has become a part of Super Bowl hype,
this year's early entry in the insignificant
question and cliches derby truly continues
to foster the important work of questions
like the one posed to Williams.

standings, one game behind
the champions and lost to
the Eagles in the finals of the
tournament title.
Head coach Sherrie Schuler
was named the Gainesville
Sun 's co-coach of the year for
guiding the team to its second


consecutive regular season
and tournament titles. She
credited the hard work of her
assistant, Mary Schuler and
her squad as the catalyst for
the honor.
Ashley Mauldin was named
to the Sun's All Area team as
the team posted a cumulative
grade point average of 3.2.
Among the players who
received academic awards
were Brittany Griffin, Jessica
Blankenship, Angela Massa,
Goldie Gollihue, Jessica
Maldanado and Alissa West.

Brittany Smith, Brittany
Griffin, Caitlin Conquest
and Sara Shouse were also
awarded academic honors.
Griffin played with both the
varsity and junior varsity


squads.
Three of the players
attended both high school
and college courses, while
four worked part-time at the
school.
No individual honors for
player's performances were
awarded, but every player
finished the season among the
top 10 in at least one category
in individual statistics in both
the district and area rankings.
The team as a whole placed
in the top ten in almost every
significant category in both
district and area rankings.
The team is expected to be
a contender for several years
to come as the junior varsity
squad will be promoting
several of its players to the
varsity squad.

TFs plague BHS Eagles


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER
1/23
Oak Hall 39
Bronson 36
Record: 11-11 (overall),
6-2 (district)
After finally getting over
the .500 mark for the season,
the Eagles slipped to an 11-
11 record as they fell on the
road in a tightly contested
defensive oriented match.
The game came down to the
final tick of the clock and the
last shot.
Both teams took turns in
the lead, but neither could
gain more than a four-point
lead. Finally Oak Hall's
two baskets in the final 90
seconds of the game took
them from being behind on
the scoreboard to a three-
point lead.
Following the two baskets,
the Eagles had possession
of the ball last and the final
opportunity to tie the game.
They set-up shop offensively
and worked the ball inside
and outside the paint until
C.J. King emerged with an
open shot as the clock shot
expired.
It hit the iron, but bounced
off the rim and Oak Hall
survived.
Over the course of the
Eagles' recent run of wins,
their offense had shown a
marked improvement in its
scoring diversity, versatility
and crispness. Marked
by a decisive increase in
its energetic vitality it had
steadily gained strength in
each game.
However, on this night,
both teams' physical play


slowed down the game and
tempo and lent itself to a
bump and grind defense,
which hampered the Eagles'
overall thrust they had been
building game by game.
But perhaps, their biggest
obstacle was self-induced.
They suffered three technical
fouls, two on the bench and
the other for having too many
men on the court.
Dion Thomas was the only
Eagle to reach double digit
scoring and the team was
able to attempt only 18 shots.
They were bolstered and
stayed close with their free
throw shooting. They were
7-10 from the charity stripe
for the game.

Hawthorne 53
Bronson 40
Record: 11-12 (overall),
6-2 (district)
The Eagles returned to the
comforts of the Eagles' Nest
after the draining and vigor
sapping loss to Oak Hall.
However, it would not be an
effortless return to their home
gym as Hawthorne was the
opponent.
With a similar style to Oak
Hall, Hawthorne slowed the
Eagles offensive attack down
and forced them into another
low scoring defensive affair.
It provided the Hornets with
the tools to send the Eagles


to their second consecutive
defeat.
Nonetheless, after
completing the first half with
Hawthorne holding a slim
21-20 lead the game seemed
destined to be determined in
the final seconds.
However, perhaps, still
stinging from the loss to Oak
Hall, or just losing steam
after their struggle to reach
the .500 mark, the Eagles
seemed powerless against the
Hornets in the second half.
They came out slow and all
the factors which had caused
them to struggle so mightily
in the first half of the season,
came back to the forefront of
not only the results of their
playing, but in its tactics and
style.
They turned the ball over on
three consecutive possessions
to start the half and were
pushed off the block under the
basket throughout the quarter.
While the Eagles matched the
Hornets in the first half with
their rebound total, it was a
different story in the second
half as they could not get any
inside position.
Hawthorne scored the first
eight points of the second half
and then ran off another eight
tallies to end the period. The
period ended with Hawthorne
winning it by a 16-3 count.
The scoreboard read 38-24
at the end of the third quarter
and the Eagles just simply
did not have the freshness in
their game to slow down the
tactically physical play of
Hawthorne. Nor were they
given the ability to return
fire.


AFTER BEGINNING the
year on an upswing, the
Eagles returned to being
on the downswing last
week. It ended with a sting-
ing loss to Hawthorne's
Hornets where the Eagles
got their inside game go-
ing in the first half, but
had trouble making entry
passes and stopping in-
side turnaround shots in
the last two quarters.

Eagles can still soar in tournament


BY NEAL FISHER
SrAFFI WRITER
During head coach Kelly
Beckham's tenure at Bronson
average records are almost
unheard of when March
Madness begins, but that is
exactly what the Eagles will
face next week.
Despite the record, after
playing a schedule loaded
with bigger schools and two
holiday tournaments the
Eagles' aspirations of another
district crown are legitimate
as they enter the tournament
as the number two seed.
The Eagles earned the
seed with a 6-2 district
record. They tied with Mayo
and Trenton for the regular
season championship. Mayo
won the top seed by virtue of
their four district road wins.
Bronson and Trenton each
had three district road wins.
"We think we can still win
the district," Beckham said.
"We could have played a
schedule that wasn't of the
caliber we did and probably
have 16 or 17 victories as
opposed to the 11 or 12 we
will finish with.
"However, we want to get
the kids ready to play for this
time of the year. I think we
have done that. Our issue is
more of a mental one than
anything we physically do on
the court. They play hard, but
don't always have the mental
concentration. Hopefully, we
will continue to improve on
that over the last two games
of the regular season."
By virtue of garnering
the second seed, the Eagles
get a first round bye, before
they take on Trenton in
the semifinals. The other
semifinal will match Mayo
against the winner of the first
round contest between Bell
and Branford. The semifinals
take place next Friday.
Each of the three top teams
split the season series against
each other and the Eagles
enter the tournament with
momentum. They rambled
off the first xx points and
extended the lead to 45-
21 at halftime en route to
their striking victory against
Trenton in the district finale.
"It seems how well we
shoot is the deciding factor in
our games," assistant coach
Phillip Knight said. "Against
Trenton in the district finale,
we shot well, but against
Mayo (the week before) we
didn't.
"We are getting good
looks, so it isn't a problem
with turnovers or not running
the offense properly. And we
play sound defense, but we
just have phases where we
have trouble knocking down
shots and it costs us."
In order to avoid the
scoring doldrums the Eagles
are prone to, the coaching
staff has already begun to
break down game footage
of the district finale to point
out the good things the Tigers
did.
When the Eagles scored,
it was because the Tigers
strayed from doing the good


The Red Devils senior
point guard came up big
in leading the team to
three consecutive victories
to close out the district
season.
In upping their district
record to a final mark of
8-2, the senior showed
leadership and disbursed
the ball to the Red Devils'
big men. He garnered at
least six assists in each of
the team's wins and had
a season high 25 points

gles are used to being the team everyone is trying
to pass.


things they are known for. It
will also keep the Eagles from
losing their focus, because of
overconfidence. They will
have the realization that this
time the Tigers will probably
do a lot more of the good
things they are known for and
to expect to see them.
While the team has
improved and shown signs of
playing with the same ability
as past Eagle teams, C.J.


King's play might just be the
difference in how far Bronson
advances in the tournament.
Without a point guard who
has the ability to get and
keep possession of the ball,
the inside players will not
have the opportunity to score
without the rock.
King's 'bulldog style' has
greatly paid dividends as he
has meshed it with a frequency
to hold onto the ball more and


against Newberry on
Friday.
In the run and gun
contest against Newberry
he drained four 3-pointers
to stop Panther runs.
Thanks in large part to
Brown's efforts as the
distributor, the Red Devils
overall record now stands
atl5-7 as they head into
the district tournament as
its number two seed and a
contender to qualify for the
state play-offs.


more and get the ball into the
Eagles post players as the
season progressed.
One of the main
beneficiaries has been forward
James Rivers, but he still has
moments of inconsistency
as well. In their wins the
sophomore has been a free-
flowing oak under the baskets,
averaging over 20 points. In
their losses though, his play
has tapered off.
Terrence Dukes will be
counted on to relive King
at the point. Dione Thomas
might also be called upon to
help with the ball handling
duties. He is a long-range
bomber who can spread
defense out to the perimeter
when he is on, but in a pinch
he can step into the point
guard position.
Without the usual offensive
productivity the Eagles are
known for, they have had to
rely on their defense as their
meal ticket when the shots
are failing to fall.
Using the same man-to-man
defense that the program has
employed for over 20 years,
it has often kept Bronson in
games, despite their inability
to score for significant
periods of time. The Eagles'
defense is designed to give
the offense the ball after they
force opponents into bad shot
selections as they speed up
the pace of the game.
Mayo played a 1-2-2
defense in their two meetings
against Bronson in the regular
season, while Trenton uses a
variety of full court traps.
Despite the uncustomary
record, perhaps the greatest
benefit of the difficult
schedule was the experience
it will provide for the district
tournament.
"Experienceteachesplayers
to stay focused," Knight said.
"'We tend to come in and out,
which is normal for a young
team. It is normal for teams
to go through scoring lulls,
but with experience, players
learn to fight through them.
It teaches them better shot
selection and how to get those
attempts.
"Sometimes inexperienced
players try to do it all and
that isn't good. We have
only one player with any
playoff experience this year
and that is why we played in
two Christmas tournaments.
Our issue is mental and it is a
matter of gaining confidence
with experience. Anybody
can win this tournament and
confidence will mean a lot."
The only player with
experience is senior Bobby
Collins, who was used
sporadic in previous playoffs.
Although Jacob Pressley's
senior leadership could be a
pivotal addition to the Eagles
arsenal.
The Eagles are battle tested
with their schedule. The
question is can they find their
focus long enough to advance
and make an unusually ho-
hum season of uncommon
setbacks into one to be
remembered.

"KING WILLIAM" WITH his fair Queen flanking his
side sits with award winners and a couple of their
supporters. Ricky Roe, Noah Faircloth, Ryan and
Richard Ghamandi, Ryan Marple, Austin LaSota,
Cammeron Smith, someone from another school,
Sidney Webb and Riley Alstodt received t-shirts and
an "authentic" certificate for their art submissions.

Art winners announced at the Faire
BY LISA STATHAM POSTERARO
ELP TEACHER
Hear ye! Hear ye! Great news cometh from the castle
of King William of the 21st annual Hoggetowne Medieval
Faire.
The king himself presented certificates and t-shirts to
nine students of Williston Elementary School on Saturday,
Jan. 27 before an enthusiastic group of proud parents and
instructors.
Principal Maria Hiers and assistant principal Cynthia
Lewis watched as Ricky Roe (5th grade-Bruce Higgins' class)
received one of three grand prizes which included a $50
savings bond for his 3-D castle.
Sarah Corliss cheered for her students who received awards:
Riley Alstodt, 1st place; Austin LaSota and Cammeron Smith,
2nd place.
Noah Faircloth (5th1 grade-Sherry Scott's class) received a 1st
place prize, and Sidney Webb (5th grade-Bruce Higgins's class)
received a 2nd place award, both for their 3-D creations.
Third graders Ryan Marple (Nancy Priest's class) and
Richard Ghamandi (Barbara Armstrong's class) also garnered
first place awards for their submissions. With her Holy Grail,
third grader Ashley Hoyt (Nancy Priest's class) brought home
a 2nd place award. The overall favorite submission was the
medieval castle!
During the Faire, the works of these winners plus the works
of all students will be displayed at the Student Art and essay
area. This was an optional assignment for these students from
the classes for gifted at WES, the enhanced learning program
(ELP). All who submitted, 37 in all, will be rewarded with a
field trip to the Faire on student day, Friday, Feb. 2.


Oelrich


asks AHCA to


reconsider CON denial

State Sen. Steve Oelrich has appealed to the Agency for
Health Care Administration (AHCA) to reconsider its denial
of the Certificate of Need (CON) application for a hospital in
Chiefland.
In a letter to AHCA Secretary Andrew Agwunobi, Oel-
rich said the CON application process may be unfair to rural
communities and questioned if revisions to the program are
needed.
In his letter, Oelrich said the "recent denial of a CON ap-
plication to build an acute care facility in Levy County both
confuses and frustrates me."
The application for the 60-patient bed was denied in De-
cember despite the support it received from the business com-
munnity, government bodies and the general public.
"Residents of this area are facing more than an hour drive
time to get emergency services and they are traveling on roads
that are becoming more and more congested," Oelrich said.
"The need for services is absolutely there, plus we have
a phenomenal level of financial and community support for
this project. I feel that this is the right time to bring the new
secretary into these discussions," he continued.


Graphic


Arts Academy


begin at Chiefland High

Chiefland High School has been designated as Levy
County's magnet school for a new Graphic Arts Academy
that will begin during the 2007-2008 school term.
The Graphic Arts Academy provides ninth grade students
the opportunity to enroll in a career and technical education
program that focuses on skills in a declared major. Students
will be required to earn core academic credits and four
(4) elective credits such as sequential courses in a specific
program.
Employers in the local business community are encouraged
to participate in the implementation of the new academy
program by becoming involved in a newly created Advisory
Board. The Advisory Board will assist both the new Graphic
Arts Academy and the existing Health Academy. The first
meeting was Thursday, Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m. at Chiefland High
School.

museum and quilting went on
until about 2 p.m. There are
always two or three or four at
the four quilts that are being
worked on.
Tuesday Jarrod and seven
boys were out and they really
did a day's work. We had two
80 yards to be used this year
for our quilting. Two cracked
and hulled out pecans and
all of this is so much help to
us. They do the many things
that keep our museum going
great.


Marie and I will be going
to Tampa to take the quilts,
crafts and dolls to the State
Fair. Some will be going
Tuesday to help judge and
what a great time we have.
Then on the Feb. 13, we go
back on the bus to see what
has ribbons.
Dinner was so great today. It
seems we have the best cooks
and today was fried potatoes,
collards and cornbread,
Layana and Cuban bread,
fruit salads, chocolate pie and
Joanell's pound cake. Twenty
members and one guest were
present.

Feb. 8 at 11:30 a.m. at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Fanning

Fifty-two members and friends were present when we met at
Akins Bar-B-Q in Bell in January. It was a joyous occasion.
In congratulating one couple, Richard and Florence Egles
on their 60th wedding anniversary, we found that five couples
had done the same. Then those married 50 years and more
were counted, at which point we decided we could enter the
Guinness Book of Records. War stories were exchanged and
a good time was had by all.
On Thursday Feb. 1 at 1 p.m., Mike Bogosta was laid to
rest at the military cemetery in Bushnell. Mike was a faithful
member of our organization and will be missed.
All WW II veterans are welcome tojoin in the camaraderie.

6 Ramps, 6 Days project continues


Marriage licenses applied for


Local community volunteers will be joining
together to build six wheelchair ramps in six
days for those with a financial need as part of
the 6 Days 6 Ramps project. The event, which
occurred Jan. 20, 26-27 and continues Feb.
3 and will span Putnam, Alachua, Columbia,
and Levy counties, allows volunteers the
opportunity to construct a wheelchair ramp for
a pre-selected individual who otherwise would
not be able to afford one.
Those interested in volunteering with 6 Days
6 Ramps can register by contacting Mary Lee
Tanca at (352) 231-2766 or 800-265-5724 or
by e-mailing her at ramps@cilncf.org. Teams
of volunteers are encouraged to participate.
"A wheelchair ramp allows many people
with disabilities to keep their independence.
For some, leaving their house without the
ramps is an impossibility," said Wendy Spencer,
Chief Executive Officer of The Governor's
Commission on Volunteerism and Community
Service, commonly called Volunteer Florida.
Originally a joint project between Volunteer
Florida and AmeriCorps Florida State Parks,
6 Days 6 Ramps was created to expand the
numbers of ramp-building volunteers for
Abilitylst in Tallahassee. In the four years
since its commencement, 6 Days 6 Ramps
has expanded to include both Pensacola and
Gainesville, and has provided 46 individuals
and families with wheelchair access ramps.
6 Days 6 Ramps is being supported by
Volunteer Florida, the Corporation for
National and Community Service, Albertsons,
AmeriCorps Florida, the Volunteer Florida
Foundation, the AmeriCorps Dignity Project,


and the Center for Independent Living of
North Central Florida. The Governor's
Commission on Volunteerism and
Community Service, Volunteer Florida,
was established in 1994 by the Florida
Legislature to administer grants under the
National and Community Service Trust Act
of 1993. The Commission grants funds to
Florida AmeriCorps and National Service
programs; encourages volunteerism for
everyone from youths to seniors to people
with disabilities; promotes volunteerism in
emergency management and preparedness;
and helps to strengthen and expand Volunteer
Centers in Florida.
The Center for Independent Living
(CILNCF) is a not-for-profit resource
agency servicing people with disabilities
(consumers) in 16 counties throughout North
Central Florida, including Alachua, Marion,
Citrus, Levy, and surrounding counties.
We are a consumer driven organization
that provides services on a cross-disability
basis. The mission of our organization is to
empower people with disabilities to exert
our individual rights to live as independently
as possible, make personal life choices, and
achieve full community inclusion.
In addition to aiding in the coordination
of 6 Days 6 Ramps, CILNCF has formed a
partnership with VISTA in an Adopt-a-Ramp

Learn how to live with less 'stuff'


"Affluenza" is an all-
consuming epidemic that
affects everyone, according
to author John de Graaf, who
will speak at Central Florida
Community College on Feb.
21.
DeGraaf defines affluenza
as "a painful, contagious,
socially transmitted condition
of overload, debt, anxiety,
and waste resulting from the


dogged pursuit of more." He
will share his thoughts during
a presentation at 7 p.m. in the
Klein Center on the Ocala
Campus, 3001 S.W. College
Road. The event is free and
open to the public.
DeGraaf's best-selling
book, "Affluenza: The All-
Consuming Epidemic" is
just one of his attempts to
promote a simpler life with


less "stuff' and more time for
living. Americans spend more
money on shoes, jewelry
and watches ($100 billion)
than on higher education
($99 billion), de Graaf says
in his book. And we have
more than twice as many
shopping centers as high
schools. "Shopping centers
have supplanted churches as
a symbol of cultural values."

Tourism workshops scheduled


5ee I777771... 5uvre Mare ~~4


The UF/IFAS North Florida Research
and Education Center--Suwannee Valley
(NFREC-SV) and The Original Florida
Tourism Task Force will be offering the last
of three workshops on Tourism Opportunities
for Farmers at the Spirit of the Suwannee
Music Park on Wednesday, Feb. 7 from 9
a.m. to 3 p.m.
The response to the first two workshops
in this series has been tremendous and
participants have gained a wealth of
knowledge so far. The third workshop will not
disappoint. Attendee Lei Lani Davis says "My
husband and I have been working to start our
own business to eventually help supplement
our retirement. The information needed is
not all in one place. These workshops have
been helping fill the gaps. We learn a bit
of everything from zoning and insurance
to marketing and value add ideas. We are
looking forward to the third workshop."
This series of workshops is designed to
help farmers and landowners take advantage
of opportunities offered by Florida's natural
resources. The first two workshops dealt with
understanding agritourism and the nuts-and-
bolts of starting an agritourism enterprise.

This final workshop will focus on how
these ventures can be financed through such
means as grants, partnerships and traditional
financing packages. Marketing will also be
discussed.
NFREC-SV serves the diverse agricultural
interests in the region including vegetables,
fruit crops, protected culture, forestry,
tobacco and other forage crops. The Original
Florida Tourism Task Force is a tourism
marketing group that seeks to promote yet
preserve the natural and cultural attractions
of the area to increase the number of visitors
and extend their stay.
Participants that complete all three
workshops will be added to the Original
Florida's website which reaches well over
100,000 visitors monthly.
Financial assistance for this project is also
provided by Visit Florida.
The registration fee is $10 and includes
lunch, refreshments and program materials.
