.....i~ CARVER CARVES NEW LIFE

FROM DEAD WOOD


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER

He was in and out of
hospital 17 times. His problem
was a heart gone awry.
Doctors installed two stints
and then, 11 months later,
performed a triple bypass
surgery. Within six months,
two of Eugene Hunter's
repaired arteries collapsed.
Doctors gave him yet another
stint.
All that was before he
changed his diet.
"I began eating a
Biblically-based diet mainly
vegetarian nuts, fruits and
grains. I treated the cause,
not the symptoms, I started
walking and exercising."
The Fanning Springs
resident says he gave his life
to the Lord three and a half
years ago, while lying flat on


his back in the hospital. The
medical problems, and the
subsequent turning his heart
over to God, changed his
life. Medical problems meant
his old occupations were off
limits. He had been a welder
and a carpenter. Before that
he had enlisted in the Army,
where he says he worked in
guided missiles.
Hunter's carpentry skills
have no doubt influenced his
primary occupation nowadays.
He fills his days by carving
wood. His inspiration is his
faith in God.
"For every carving I do I
kneel on the ground and pray
to the Lord. My carvings are
for witnessing purposes. The
carving helps support my wife
and I," he says.
His introduction to carving
was serendipitous.
"I didn't know I could


carve. 1 stopped in a friend's
carving shop in Fanning
Springs and began coming in
to help out around the shop.
1 started doing things with
wood and band saw. Then I
started carving with a chain
saw. Hunter's first attempt was
a seahorse approximately 40
inches tall. I thought it looked
pretty good. A customer
walked into the shop and
bought it."
Hunter and his carver
friend soon had a parting of
the ways. He then apprenticed
himself to another local carver
who he said "was more of
a sculptor. He worked with
chisels and mallets. He told
me he didn't need to teach me
to carve I already knew how
to do that but he could teach
me how to use the tools."
Hunter worked with him

STAFF WRITER

If it sounds to good to be
true, it generally is. It was
rumored that the state has
approved construction of a
hospital in Chiefland. Frank
Schupp, the representative
from the company trying to
build the hospital, contacted
the Levy County Journal
Monday to clarify a report
by WCJB TV 20 News that
the hospital construction was
approved.,
"Neither Ameris Health
Systems nor I as their local
representative have had any
discussions with any local
media on this matter," Schupp
said.
Late last year, the state
Agency for Health Care
Administration denied the
certificate of need filed by
Ameris. Such certificates
must be approved by the
state before new health care
facilities can be built or


significant expansions are
made to existing facilities.
The state listed several
factors in its denial including
the statement that slower-
than-expected growth meant
additional facilities would
not be needed. The state
said distances to existing
hospitals were normal for
rural areas. The state also
said that building a hospital
in Chiefland would be at the
expense of existing facilities.
Ameris has been busy
fighting the state's decision.
In February, the company was
graunicd a request for a formal
hearing on the denial.
But now the company has
more hurdles to cross than
the state's objections. North
Florida Regional Medical
Center filed a petition Monday
with the state opposing the
hospital.
In its petition, North
Florida maintains it "would
be substantially and adversely
affected." It states that it

Levy County will not have a water bottling plant at the
Morrisprings location any time soon. A circuit judge last week
sided with the county's decision to reject the proposed bottling
operation in the Gulf Hammock area of the county.
The ruling caps almost two years of meetings and legal fights
between the County Commission and Morrisprings Natural
Water Corp., and its owners Louis Bello and Zobeida Bello
The company is based in Miami. The company's application for
a special exception to zoning regulations that ultimately were
grounds for its denial was filed almost four years ago.
County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said the ruling shows
the County Commission acted responsibly in dealing with
Morrisprings Natural Water Corp.
"It does show that the board did everything right," she said.
"They did all things right in conducting the hearing. They based
their decision on the proper law."
Commissioner Nancy Bell said the ruling is good news for
the county.
"I'm glad to hear that it finally got settled and it's in our
favor," she said.
The Bellos list their address in Hialeah. Their phone number
is unlisted.
Morrisprings Natural Water Corp. asked the county for a
special exception to the residential and agricultural zoning on
its 20-acre parcel on County Road 326 near the intersection
of County Road 337. The company planned to tap into an
underground river and bottle drinking water.
The county does not regulate the tapping of water but it
does regulate the structures on the ground that support a water
bottling plant. The county's zoning does not allow for the
commercial water bottling operation, so Morrisprings Natural
Water Corp. sought the special exception.
The county values the land at $183,000 for tax purposes. The
property includes a mobile home and is adjacent to another 20
acres the Bellos own.
As the Morrisprings Natural Water Corp. application worked
its way through county, it met with some support but mostly
denial.
In March 2004, Levy County Development Director
Robert Corbitt supported the project. Four months later, the
Levy County Planning Commission recommended against


already serves the residents of
the service area proposed to be
served by Ameris. The petition
further says that "North
Florida derives substantial
patient volume and revenue"
from the area the Ameris
facility would serve."
North Florida's petition
adds that it "does not
oppose approval of the
CON (certificate of need)
application" but wants several
conditions imposed by the
state should the certificate
of need is granted. Those
conditions include having an
onsite emergency room open
24 hours a day and seven
days a week, that pediatric
services be provided, and
that the Ameris facility have
patient transfer agreements
with other area hospitals.
Further conditions requested
are that appropriate levels of
Medicaid and charity cases be
maintained.
North Florida also asks


that the state include them
in settlement negotiations
it believes are currently
underway between Ameris
and Agency for Health Care
Administration.
Chiefland orthodontist Bill
Martin did not welcome news
of North Florida's petition.
"I really feel it is
unfortunate that North Florida
has taken this stance. They
already have more than
enough patients to fill their
beds. I feel their decision is
purely economic.
"Everyone is going to
benefit by having a hospital
1here," Martin said.
Regarding the eventual
outcome of the legal
wrangling, Schupp said, "We
still have a couple of issues
with AHCA (Agency for
Health Care Administration)
that need to be resolved.
Ameris is cautiously
optimistic that we can resolve
those issues."u


approval. In August 2004, public interest and opposition to the
project was high, and the County Commission held a quasi-
judicial hearing in the Bronson High School auditorium to
accommodate the large number of people interested, in the issue.
The commission voted against the petition for a special
exception to accommodate the bottling operation.
Commissioners were concerned that the proposed project
did not provide enough safeguards for residents,
was too close to residential land,
lacked natural buffers and setbacks,
was incompatible with nearby residential
development, and
was based on outdated traffic studies.

Morrisprings Natural Water Corp. then petitioned the
court for a writ of certiorari, asking the judge to overturn the
commission's decision made in the quasi-judicial hearing. The
company's attorneys argued that the decision was not based on
competent testimony or substantial evidence.
Attorneys Brian Bolves and Ethan Loeb of the Tampa firm
Bricklemyer, Smblker & Bolves represented the county. Circuit
Judge David Giant issued his ruling in favor of the county
March 20.
Brown said Morrisprings Natural Water Corp. has 30 days
from the ruling to appeal to the First District Court ofAppeals.
The county's actions, following the denial of a similar
bottling operation at Blue Grotto Springs, is not indicative
of an interest to protect water resources, she said, although
some residents argued in favor of such protection at the public
hearing. That responsibility lies with the state, through the water
management districts.
The county's decision was based in part on how the operation
and related traffic would affect adjacent neighborhoods. In
its hearings, the county allowed residents to testify about
impact the bottling plant would have on their neighborhoods.
Morrisprings Natural Water Corp. argued that lay testimony was
not competent and should not have been used in the county's
decision-making process.
The judge disagreed.
"This court finds that reliance on such testimony was proper
in any case, and that, if relied upon, constituted competent and
substantial evidence in support of the board's supplemental
finding that the use proposed in the application was
incompatible with surrounding development," Giant wrote.u

Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor,
Hailey Jordan Development appreciated the Journal's
coverage (March 8) of our second request on a preliminary
plat of a subdivision in Bronson. We have been working
on this project for about 18 months and the Bronson Town
Council has twice approved the plat contingent on county
and/or engineering approval of the subdivision entrance on
County Road 32.
The Town Council will consider the Carroll Farms
subdivision plat for a third time at their meeting on April 2
at 7 p.m.
In order to build an affordable and marketable subdivision
of single-family homes we need a minimum of 147 home
sites of 10,000 square feet each, including 2,000 square feet
of private streets. The streets will be built under the common
ownership of the developers and later maintained by a
homeowner's association at no cost to taxpayers..
We think the project will be good for the town. At build
out, Carroll Farms will generate an'estimated $125,000 a year
in new taxes for the town and another $50,000 a year in water


and sewer user fees. There will be no costs to the town for
laying water and sewer lines or for increasing sewer capacity.
The project will pay for itself. This kind of growth can help
reduce the future burden on other taxpayers in the town.
The Town Council has twice expressed its desire to see the
town and its tax base grow in a reasonable manner. We hope
that past willingness of the council to interpret issues to the
benefit of the town will continue on April 2nd. Hailey Jordan
Development has devoted a lot of time and considerable funds
to planning this project, but it must be financially feasible if
it is to continue.
Thank you again for your article "Bronson Council says
yes to 150-home subdivision."

K eep up the good work&

Lessons

in the key of life
BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
When Elizabeth and John Edwards appeared on the
television screen last Thursday, I was riveted. It was a glorious
Chapel Hill day, and they were standing together in picture-
perfect spring sunshine. They were united the very picture of
marital union.
They stood before what must have been an impressive bank
of cameras and reporters as they told the world that the wife's
cancer had returned, and had in fact been identified as stage
four. What had started as a lump in Elizabeth's breast four years
before was now spread to distant areas. It had metastasized and
was in her bones.
Doctors estimate that those with breast cancer, stage four,
can expect perhaps another two to five years before the dreaded
enemy overtakes them.
Elizabeth and John Edwards are my contemporaries. To
those of us at midlife, two to five years is nothing. It passes in
the blink of an eye. In two years, a brand-new car has hardly
worn off its smell of new. A child conceived at the beginning of
those two years has only begun to learn to speak, has just begun
teething and is still clumsy walking across a floor.
Two years gets you halfway through college. Five years
gets you halfway through a decade, one-sixth through a typical
mortgage, and still working toward that coveted third week of
vacation.
And yet Elizabeth and John Edwards smiled at each other
and at the television cameras. Her cancer, they said, would not
postpone his plans their plans to race for the 2008 White
House vacancy.
I don't mean to imply that one incident should be used
to judge the fitness of a candidate to hold political office.
Candidates will come and candidates will go. My decision on
who I will vote for will not be made for at least another year. I
simply appreciate the courage of the Edwards as they continue.
their lives.
Then too, I can relate at least in part to Elizabeth's cancer
diagnosis. A good friend of mine, Charlotte, is living with
stage-four breast cancer. I didn't know precisely what that
meant until this weekend. I knew she had been fighting the
disease for over two decades, and that she still deals with
it today. But her cancer has never been a big deal in our
relationship.
That's of course because she doesn't make of it a big deal.
She lives her life anyway. The disease is but one factor of her
life. Most of the time, it is not even a major factor. She focuses
on the positives of life, and as a result, she is a good friend,
wife and mother. She is so optimistic and resolute in spite of the
disease that another friend has nicknamed her "Lion-heart."
I find it to be pure inspiration the image of two people
standing there, holding hands and smiling, despite other
realities. I see there the perfect image of love. That love
embodied as loyalty and a will to face an enemy and fight
- together, serenely and in perfect confidence.
How often do we see that from our political leaders? How
often do we have the privilege of being present to two of our
own inner circle displaying such valor and such love?
To Elizabeth and John, and especially to :Charlotte and her,:
husband; i thanikyou. I am humbled before your example. I
would like to give you something back, theorily thing I havento-
tive. Not only my sincere appreciation, but the very best of my

Chiefland commission


clears water


payment system

BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER


fhe Chiefiand City Commission met in a special session
Thursday to clarify policies on how to penalize late
payers of water, sewer and garbage service. City
Manager Grady Hartzog provided commissioners with the
current ordinance and explanations of how it is enacted.
Of late payers for water service, Hartzog told
commissioners, "In the past we've been cutting off residential
and some of the commercial customers."
He continued that it has also been the practice in some
commercial cases for the city to accept partial payments.
Staff members deliver notice of impending service cut-off
to those who fail to pay their water bills. In March, 162 notices
were delivered, approximately 16 percent of the city's 1,045
water customers.
Commissioners also discussed a backlog of more than
$37,000 in bills that had not been paid. Some of those bad
debts went back three decades. Hartzog recommended the
commissioners approve use of an accounting process called
"Route 20," where old.debts are removed from current
accounting records. While the debts would be cleared from
the records subject to annual audit, collection attempts would
continue under the process.


Mayor Betty Walker said, "Some of these are from the '70s
and '80s, and people are moved off or dead."
Commissioner Teresa Barron, after clarifying that collection
efforts would continue, made a motion authorizing the city to
apply the process to all bills dated Sept. 30, 2006, or earlier.
The motion met with unanimous passage after being seconded
by Commissioner Teal Pomeroy.
Hartzog also recommended that commissioners give him
discretion when late payers request to make partial payments
on overdue balances while maintaining their water service.
Commissioners unanimously approved allowing customers
90 days to pay off late balances. The motion was made by
Barron and seconded by Commissioner Rollins Hudson. This is
considered a temporary measure to allow customers to catch up
on old balances occurring before Sept. 30, 2006.
Water and utility bills are mailed the first of the month

Impact fees encounter
minor snags in first reading


BY CASSIE JOURNIGAN
STAFF WRITER
C hiefiand's city commissioners skirmished over some
provisions in their draft impact fee ordinance. Impact
fees are being considered for fire, police, parks and
recreation, and transportation.
Commissioners were initially concerned that the need for
a new study after five years would absorb the majority of
fees collected after setting impact fees. They were assured
by City Manager Grady Hartzog that although the study
last year was completed by a consulting firm the city hired,
city staff are capable of updating the statistics that would be
needed in th-uirpdated study.
Commissioner Teresa Barron was also concerned that
certain language in one section would set the stage for the

for about six months. In all, he has been carving about seven years.
He does not yet sign his work "When I think I'm good enough,
then I'll sign them."
He carves animals alligators, birds, snakes, bears, panthers. He
carved a Seminole Indian for a 'Noles fan. He said lately he has had
a lot of requests for manatees.
His smallest carving, an eagle wrapped with a rattlesnake, stands
about eight inches tall.
His most recent is his tallest work so far. He has just completed
a totem. He was commissioned to do the piece after local resident
Arthur Savoia discovered a dead tree with an interesting shape in his
wooded five acres. That tree now depicts an Indian family a brave,
a squaw and a papoose, as well as an owl and snake and stands
more than 20 feet high.
Hunter worked on the totem for about a week.
"One day alone was needed just to put the scaffolding together,"
he said. He also spent more than the anticipated time carving tmehe
squaw. "I hadn't done too many women. Most people want Indian
braves, so I don't get too many calls for carvings of women. I had to
keep fighting to get it right she just kept looking like a man."
Hunter says he's completed hundreds of carvings. Some, like
Savoia's totem, are meant for the outdoors. He says he has several in
clients' yards in Old Town.
Others are intended to be displayed indoors. Those are smaller
and more intricate. Large or miniature, he says they are all meant
to glorify the Lord. "I think it's important to have a working
relationship with the Lord that's what's gonna save you," he said.
"In my life it's all about the Lord now. I'm not trying to convert
you I just want to introduce you to the Lord. I'm just a Johnny
Appleseed. I plant seeds."
And he uses the wood thereof to depict all the creatures of his
Lord's kingdom.r


city to take the property of people who fail to pay their
impact fees. Mayor Betty Walker told her, "It won't get to
that."
Commissioners disagreed over when the impact fees
should be collected. A three-two vote decided in favor of
Teal Pomeroy's motion to collect fees when the certificate
of occupancy is applied for. His motion was seconded by
Barron. Rollin Hudson joined them iA that vote.
Walker and Alice Monyei voted in opposition, preferring
that the city collect fees when building permits are obtained.
The motion to approve the first reading of the ordinance
setting the impact fees passed 4-1 after being motioned
by Barron and seconded by Monyei. Hudson was the sole
dissenter.
The ordinance will take effect 90 days after approval in a
second reading. Impact fees for water will be set later..

Tax-revolt leader

seeks charter

government for

Levy County
BY LARRY SCHNELL
NEWS EDITOR AND WRITER
Bill Phillips, owner of the Cedar Key Bed and Breakfast,
watched his business property taxes go from $7,400 a year to
$19,000 a year in four years. He's had enough.
Phillips initially went to the Levy County Commission to
protest the tax increase. He headed up a tax revolt movement
in Levy County that included a bonfire in Cedar Key. But
Phillips said he found the County Commission arrogant and
unresponsive to his efforts to lower taxes.
So in order to change the tax rate, he feels he needs to
change county government.
On Monday, Phillips took his case to the Levy County
Republican Executive Committee, which met at Bell's
Restaurant. This is one of many groups he has visited over the
past few months.
Phillips said he would like to see Levy County scrap its
standing under Florida's constitution and instead become a
charter county, designing its own government.
"We need to really get rolling on this charter thing," he told
the members.
Changing the charter may be the best way to change the
County Commission, he said. Some commissioners have been
on the board for many years. The longer they serve, the less
responsive and the more corrupt they become, he said.
Under a charter government, voters can have a recall
election to remove commissioners in the midst of their term.
The recall option is not allowed under the constitutional
government, he said.
He said he needs almost 4,000 signatures on a petition to
get the issue on the ballot. So far he has collected about 500.
He had no difficulty gathering more signatures at the Monday
meeting.
Phillips told the Republican members that the movement
is not associated with a political party. Democrats and
Republicans alike are unhappy with the rapidly rising taxes.
"It is not a partisan thing," he said. "It's not a Democratic
issue. It is not a Republican issue. It's any everybody thing."
Should the issue make the ballot, supporter must get 50
percent plus one votes. If they lose, they will have to wait
another two years to try again.
If voters support the proposed charter government, a
commission is set up to design the new government. The
commission of between 11 and 15 members is chosen either
by the County Commission or by the legislative delegation, he
said.
Phillips said he wants the legislative delegation to appoint
the commission. He does not trust the County Commission.
"Do you really trust our County Commission to come up
with a good tax plan for us?" he said.
Once the charter commission is established, the County
Commission is not allowed to have input, he said.
Phillips said the change to a charter county is especially
important in view county exemptions to tax legislation working
its way through the Legislature. The legislation seeks to limit
the amount of taxes counties can collect, but it exempts some
counties including Levy County. u

Cedar Key Public Library receives
Books for Children Grant
The Cedar Key Public Library has received 62 hardcover
children's books worth more than $1,000 from the Libri
Foundation of Eugene, Ore. The Cedar Key Public Library Friends
of the Library, which contributed $350 dollars in matching funds,
made the receipt of this grant possible. The amount was matched
by the foundation on a 2-1 basis.
The Libri Foundation is a nationwide nonprofit organization
that donates new, quality children's books to small rural public
libraries in the United States. The foundation supports the concept
that children who learn to enjoy reading at an early age continue to
read throughout their lives. In order to develop a love of reading,
children must have access to books that stretch their imaginations,
touch their emotions and expand their horizons. The Foundation
realizes that the continuing increase in book prices can make
it difficult for small rural libraries to add substantially to their
children's collection and thus developed the Books for Children
Grant program.
Librarian Molly Jubitz selected the books from a Libri
Foundation booklist with more than 700 titles. The list contained
quality books, many of which have won awards or national
recognition, along with some classic.
Bronson to host alternative
fuel summit in St. Petersburg
Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is hosting a "Farm to Fuel" summit July 18-20
at the Marriot Renaissance Vinoy Resort in St. Petersburg.
Hoping to build on recent developments .in Florida's efforts to
establish a renewable energy industry, Bronson said the meeting
will cover current initiatives relating to ethanol and bio-diesel, as
well as other opportunities for renewable energy production in
Florida.
Florida's "Farm to Fuel" initiative inspired by the bipartisan
national organization "25x'25" seeks to enhance the market for
and promote the production and distribution of renewable energy
from Florida-grown crops, agricultural wastes and residues,
and other biomass. In the process, it is designed to give Florida
agricultural producers alternative crops to grow to keep their farms
and ranches viable.
Information about the "Farm to Fuel" initiative and the
upcoming summit can be found at http://www.FloridaFarmToFuel.
com.
Reservations for the summit should be made directly with the
resort, which can be reached at 1-888-303-4430 or http://www.

Embarq reminds everyone
to call before you dig
Spring is just around the comer, and with the warmer weather
comes an increase in construction activities. EMBARQ reminds
the construction industry, gardeners or anyone working in their
own yard to protect their communities by calling their local one-
call agency before digging or disrupting the ground in any way.
The Sunshine. State One Call of Florida Inc. is (800) 432-4770
"We typically see an increase in cable cuts during the spring
months," said Jim Hansen, senior vice president of Network
Services at EMBARQ. "We'd like to remind everyone to call
before they dig or disturb the ground in any way. That includes
such minor things as putting in a sprinkler system or fence all the
way to the construction of a new office building. If a cable is cut,
it can disrupt emergency communications services and put people
at risk."
Each year there are thousands of cable cuts affecting
communications companies across the country. Due to the robust
nature of the EMBARQ network, often customers are unaware
when a cut occurs. But when there is a cut, the company mobilizes
its technicians into action to quickly fix the cable to keep any
impact at a minimum.

Students from middle and
high schools in Levy and
Gilchrist counties demonstrated
their skills in assessing soil
characteristics at a land-judging
contest last week.
Sixty students, mostly from
school FFA groups and some
from 4-H groups, participated in
teams in the contest, which was
sponsored by the Levy Soil and
Water Conservation District.
Darlene Smith, administrative
assistant with the district,
organized the event. Students
evaluated soils on three sites on
the Thomas Cattle Co. land.
The exercise is valuable in
helping students learn about
soil quality for agriculture, said
Hugh Thomas, with the Florida
Department of Agriculture in
Live Oak. A knowledge of soil
types also is useful in areas
of construction such as home

- fifth graders in Cheryl Callaway's class enjoy the
ice cream sundae as part of the afternoon's festivities
following the "pig kissing." Volunteer extraordinaire
Peggy Brooks and school AR coordinator Carol
Glass organized the AR incentive event and served
the sundaes to Callaway's class.

At the beginning of the school year, Carol Glass, Accelerated
Reading Program coordinator at Williston Elementary School,
challenged all the classes, and she had Principal Marla Hiers's
blessing. By the end of the first semester if any class has 85 percent
of the students attaining Terrific Reader status with an 85 percent
average of their AR tests, Hiers would kiss a pig! Of course, they
all screamed they could do it. At the end of the semester, only one
class made it Cheryl Callaway's fifth graders.
On Monday, Callaway's excited students gathered around
Hiers on the hardtop on the north side of the campus while Brad
Etheridge held three-week old "Piglet" for Hiers to smooch.
"It was the cutest pig in the whole wide world," said physical
education instructor Erin Owens, who collects anything "piggy"
and never eats pork.
"It was awesome!" said Melisa Lewis, a member of the class.
"She kissed it twice. Afterward, she brushed her teeth and put on
new lipstick. I'd never seen anyone kiss a pig before!"
Classmate Stephen Cochlin had a different take.
"It was a really little pig. It looked like a Chihuahua. I have
hogs here [at his house]. I would like to have seen her kiss one of
them," he chuckled.
Hiers's opinion of the experience? "I think it's fun because the
kids get such a kick out of it. They'll work for funny things. And
I'm for doing anything to motivate the kids," said Hiers.
Though she enjoyed watching the whole pig-kissing experience,
Morgan Vanasco explained her motivation for attaining an even
higher AR goal for the entire year 100 points.
"My mom said ifI got 100 points by the end of the year, I'd
have no chores during the summer break. I have 40 more to go,"
Morgan said.

served ice cream sundaes to the winning class following the pig-
kissing.

SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL

| er cleverly resourceful and artistic touches are
Everywhere the pleasant and welcoming front
office, the decor of the conference room, the holiday-
themed displays in the staff mailroom, even the staff bathroom!
At Williston Elementary School, evidence of Peggy Brooks's
presence is ubiquitous. And this year the title of Volunteer of the
Year made its way to her resume.
The Kentucky native moved to Palatka when she was in third
grade. Eventually, she married Montbrook native Baker Brooks,
and they later added two children, Erik and Erin, to their family.
Brooks began her career as a volunteer when Erik and Erin were
in school in Jacksonville, where they lived while Baker began his
career with John Hancock.
In the 1980s, Baker brought his family to his home in Levy
County, and the kids graduated from Williston High School and
the University of Florida. Erik and his wife Ginger (nee Smith)
have three children Logan, Tyler and Shelby. Erin, physical
education at WES, is married to Michael Owens.
"I started (volunteering) with Harriet Jones when Logan was
in her kindergarten class (at Joyce Bullock Elementary)," said
Brooks. "I wanted to be part of their [the grandchildren's] school
experience but then recognized the great need for extra help for the
teachers and school."
Having Brooks in her class was "absolutely wonderful!"
exclaimed Jones. "Peggy did anything and everything I asked her
to do. She worked like a dog!"
WES principal Marla Hiers echoed those sentiments.
"Peggy exceeds every expectation. Her spirit of excellence
is evident in bulletin boards, displays, AR (Accelerated Reader)
luncheons, special receptions, back drops (for school plays),
creative office decorations, big smiles and warm hugs. She is an
encourager, a peacemaker, a cheerleader, an organizer, a fellow

comrade and teammate."
Brooks divided her time between JBES and WES when the
grandchildren were in both schools, then volunteered exclusively
at WES. She has no set schedule. For 13 years she has helped with
every facet of school life from activity preparation for the teachers
to organizing special occasions for individual classrooms and the
staff- and even cleans up afterwards.
Dolores Gaitanis, WES reading coach, is one of the many lucky
beneficiaries of her services. "She certainly makes my job easier.
With all the paperwork I have to handle, Peggy is the consummate
organizer," said Gaitanis. "I so appreciate everything she does for
me and for all our staff. And she's a good friend."
Rowena Rivera, a teacher with the exceptional student
education program who refers to Peggy as "Mama," says she will
laminate, copy, organize, "anything we ask her to do." Brooks
even purchased a hutch for the staff lunch area in the cafeteria to
hold paper goods and other items for staffuse.
"Miss, Peggy, come help me get these surveys out!" secretary
Darlene Hopping remembers pleading recently. "When I'm in a
bind, she's always there. It means a lot to have her here."
When asked what she likes best about her volunteer job, Brooks
explained, "being part of such an excellent team administration,
teachers, staff, students and parents who work together for the
welfare of the students." Working with the people at WES and
knowing that she contributes to making their job easier and more
effective explains what Brooks enjoys most about her "job."
She also likes a challenge, and her middle name is
"Perseverance." Her own children can attest to this. But her motto
is "There is a way to do anything if you just try."
One of those more recent challenges was how to create
a rain forest entrance for the school book fair. "Peggy's the
volunteer who's-always willing to do whatever is needed and
does everything and anything," said Donna Lovvorn, WES media
specialist. And poof, that rain forest miraculously appeared as
Brooks and Lowom cannibalized the contents of their assorted

PUSHING THE DONATED Hitchcock's shopping cart to
sell pickles on Friday constitutes one of the many jobs for
which Peggy Brooks volunteers at Williston Elementary
School. Fourth graders Britany Rowe, Kenkeyanna
Tomlin, C. J. Greathouse, Megan Dixon and Maritza Bravo
(hiding beside Maritza is Laci Hall) gather around "Miss
Peggy" to purchase a mouth-puckering dill pickle. The
proceeds from pickle sales help fund the Accelerated
Reading Program incentives.
stashes of treasures to make vines and foliage.
When she's not at WES, Brooks enjoys helping friends and
working at the Williston Church of God. "I help with whatever a
person needs...cleaning, hospital sitting, decorating, transporting,
organizing...or just loving," said Brooks.I
Brooks epitomizes the adage "service is love in work clothes"
and shows no signs of wanting to slow down or bow out. "My
grandchildren are in high school now, but the warmth and
appreciation of the school faculty and staff have welcomed my
staying with them for all these years."m

SPORTS WRITER

This year's version of the
Bronson Eagles' baseball
squad has struggled. For
this year's version of the
Chiefland Indians' baseball
squad it hasn't been quite as
easy as their record indicates,
but nonetheless, they have
had a much more successful
season.
Even with the disparity
in their seasons, when the
cross county rivals met last
week, the discrepancy was
far from being on display as
the Indians pulled out a 5-4
victory in eight innings.
"They were ready to play,"
Chiefland head coach Kyle
Parnell said. "It was a tough-
fought victory, because they
didn't give up."
The winning run came
when the Eagles' failed to
cleanly handle the ball after
Indians'junior outfielder
Matt Williams' put it in play.
Matt Carter who had led off
the inning by also safely
reaching base on an error,
crossed the plate with the
eventual winning run.
Both errors occurred
after Bronson's Dean
Cobb induced the first two
Chiefland batters of the
inning to hit into outs.
With the Indians' primed
to up their record to 10-0
for the season and Bronson
seemingly having the wind
taken out of their sails, it
seemed the last three outs
of the game was simply a
formality. ,.. -
But the Eagles showed
some "coming of age" as
they gave the Indians all they
could handle before falling.
Cobb and Virgil Greenlee
led of Bronson's half of
the inning with singles off
Ory Pitts, who had held
the Eagles scoreless for the
previous two frames.
Danny Galpin relieved
Pitts. His first order of
business was an intentional

Chiefland the second time but were once again just a
second too slow.

again they made just enough key errors to lose.


walk, which loaded the
bases. It was the right call
from the Indians' viewpoint
as the next Eagle batter
hit a somewhat hard but
undeviating bouncing
groundball directly to Pitts.
The pitcher started a double
play, forcing Cobb at home
plate.
Then the Indians, for the
second time in the inning,
intentionally walked the next
Eagle batter. It loaded the
bases again. However, now
with two outs, Galpin fanned
the next Eagles' hitter to
quell the rally and notch his
first save of the season. He
also lowered his earned run
average to 0.53.

their mistake," Parnell said.
"The guys are showing a lot
more maturity this year. That
is one of the examples. Last
year, even with the mistake
we would have had trouble
getting the run in."
Chiefland drew first blood
in this edition of the cross-
county rivalry in the second
inning.
Junior shortstop Korey
Hanchar reached first base
when he was hit by a pitch.
The Eagles' catcher allowed
two pass balls, moving the
shortstop to third base. He
then scored on Galpin's
single back through the
middle.

Formula for


Red Devils'


victory remains


the same

BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER


Hanchar again led off the
inning by safely reaching
base. This time it was single
between the shortstop and
third baseman. He was
moved over to second base
and then scored as senior
centerfielder Eddie Carter's
looping Texas-Leaguer
was just out of the reach of
Bronson second baseman
Luke Morrison. The score
made it a 2-0 game.
It looked like the Eagles
were all but done after the
next inning as the Indians
built a 3-0 lead. The Indians
went to playing "small ball"
as Hancher scored during
the fielder's choice senior
catcher Chad Hodges had hit
into. Junior third baseman
Chase Gregory's walk loaded
the bases to set the stage.
However, with four runs
on five hits and several
walks, the Eagles not only
came right back in their half
of the inning but took the
lead. They sent nine men to
the plate during their turn at
the plate. Luke Morrison's
two-out liner put the Eagles
ahead by a 4-3 score.
In the top of the fifth,
Chiefland tied the game to
set up the finish. In what
would be a foreshadowing
of the game's climatic end,
senior second baseman Isaac
Hardee led off the top of
t the fifth and reached base
on a Bronson miscue. He
was moved to third base and
scored as
Hanchar also safely
reached base due to an
Eagles' error. Galpin doubled
and scored two runs. Hqssell
was 3-4 with four runs batted
in. Hardee and Carter also
played a major role, with two
hits apiece.


In the second of three
games last week against
district rivals, the Red
Devils didn't score until the
third inning of their contest
against Fort White, but the
result was the same as it had
been on Tuesday night.
For the second consecutive
game the Red Devils won
by a score of 12-5 and it
was, once again, because
of a dominant pitching
performance, getting the
lead-off batter on base and
collecting a deluge of hits
with runners on base.
This time it was D.J.
Bowers on the mound whose
performance was dominant.
He went the distance in
scattering nine hits while
striking out five batters and
walking only one. More than
half the hits came during the
last two innings, which was
long after the outcome of the
game had been decided.
"It was definitely Bowers'
best pitching performance of
the season so far and it also
was probably the best outing
of anybody on the staff so'
far this year as well," head
coach Jim Smith said. "We
started slower than we had
on Tuesday, but once we
made the adjustments at the
plate the hits came and most
of them were with runners
on base.
"It was a sign of maturity,
which the team has been
showing more and more
as we get deeper into the
season. Which is what we
were trying to accomplish

when we put together our
schedule for this season."
Bowers' performance was
so commanding that he
threw only 78 pitches during
his seven-inning outing. Of
those 78 pitches, 54 were
strikes. Not only was he in
command of the game, he
was efficient as he got ahead
in the count against 21 of the
28 hitters he faced.
While Bowers was keeping
the home team from an all
out uprising, Williston's
offense exploded in the third.
They pushed across three
runs in that inning and then
followed the first scoring of
the game with another five
tallies in the next frame.
Both times the Red Devils
got their lead-off man on
base as they finished the
game failing to achieve that
statistic only once.
The fatal blow this time
was delivered by Trip
Fugate. He blasted a Fort
White offering over the left
field fence, bringing home
three tallies and putting
the Red Devils up on the
scoreboard by an 8-0 count.
The Red Devils finished
the game with 15 hits.
In complefting:hi best
performance of tie season so
far, Bowers upped his record
to 2-3.
"As I said about the game
against Newsome, we
got a lot put of the trip to
Key West, even if it didn't
translate on the scoreboard.
One of the things we got
that showed in this game
was the consistency of doing
the same things that win
ballgames from one game to
the next."
"We got the lead off man on
over the last six innings and
scored in all but one of those
innings. Once again a couple
of guys get a hit and it
becomes contagious. Along
with hitting with runners on
base and our pitcher getting
ahead in the count, the lead
off hitters getting on base
consistently made for an
almost identical game."

I don't want
them to for et
Babe Rut.
I just want them to
remember me!

followed the outburst with
another three tallies in the
second frame. They finished
scoring with one and three
more runs in the third and
fifth innings, respectively.
Starting pitcher Gary
Cecil did the rest as he held
the Panthers scoreless until
the third inning and toed
the rubber for the first five
frames. Of the five runs
he gave up, only two were
earned. He also struck out
three Panthers while walking
only two.
Making his first start of
the season, he consistently
got ahead in the count,
allowing him to keep the
Panthers' batters off guard.
Trip Fugate pitched the last
two innings, holding the
visitors scoreless.
The pitchers gave up only
five hits to the Panthers.
With so few upper classmen
this year, Cecil's start was
also encouraging for the
team as the coaching staff
is looking to develop some
more pitchers as they head
into the season's stretch run
and for next year.
James sparked the
Williston engine into running
on all eight cylinders from
the get go as he led off the
game with a double. The Red
Devils' next batter brought
him home with a single up
the middle.
James' second hit put the
game out of reach. It was a
three-run shot over the right
field fence in the second,
inning, giving the Red
Devils a comfortable eight
run lead before the fans had
a chance to settle into their
seats. He walked in his final
at-bat to reach base all three
times he batted.
Danny Etheridge
complemented James with
a 3-for-4 performance at the
plate. Damon Ming added a
2-for-3 performance as well.
Both ripped doubles to keep
rallies going. The Red Devils
totaled 13 hits.

Returning home from
a two-game set against
state power Key West
in which the Red Devils
appeared to be way out of
their element, head coach
Jim Smith's analysis of the
weekend was that the team
was closer to its previous
glory than the scores
indicated.
They proved him right
as they kicked off the
week with the first of three
victories with a 12-5 win
over district rival Newberry.
"The coaching staff looks
at the season in thirds,"
Smith said. "The first third
is the pre-season. We play
a difficult schedule against
teams like Key West, so we
get better. Then we play our
district, which is the regular
season. We began the bulk of
that this week. Then we have
the post-season. This year
the first third was especially
important, because we are
young.
"We played Key West toe
to toe until the last couple
of innings both times. We
just ran out of gas at the
end. So it wasn't' a matter of
them being overwhelmingly
talented even if the final
score appeared to indicate
it. We were just a little
short on experience and
understanding how to put our
talent together. The games
were decided by-a play or;
tWO."
With the ability to go toe
to toe with the state power,
the Red Devils entered
the week with a new type
of confidence in which
they were further ahead in
understanding how to use
their talent in ways that
produced victories.
They showed it off from
the start of the contest,
putting up a five spot on the
Panthers in the first inning of
their game. The Red Devils

Red Devil Rodeo,
dates set for May

By NEAL FISHER
STAFF WRITER
With the recent accomplishments of the Williston Red
Devils' football team over the past two seasons, the second
annual Williston Quarterback Club Rodeo will take place
on May 25 and 26. On the heels of two consecutive season
of seeing the Red Devils advance to the second round
of the Florida High School Activities Association's state
tournament, the rodeo will raise funds for the program in its
quest to take the next step in its evolution.
The event will take place at Williston's Horseman Park and
is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. "I think this will be more
exciting event than the rodeos we are familiar with."
The youths will have the opportunity to show their wares
in the calf scrambles and Mutton Bustin' competitions. The
Mutton Bustin' event is a competition to decide who the best~
sheep rider is.
The adults will get their chance for glory with the Wild
Horse Race and the Wild Cow Milking. There will also be
the usual array of food. More activities and competitions are
being planned as well information on ticket sales and prices.
Several players are expected to attend, although none is
planning on competing at this time.
The event's organizers are looking for volunteers.
For more information call the Williston High School
Athletic Department at 352-528-4665.

River Bluegrass Jamboree, March 30 through April 1.
Bluegrass music, which can best be described as old-time
mountain music, is played on the banjo, fiddle, guitar, mandolin
and upright bass. The Withlacoochee River Bluegrass Jamboree
is dedicated to the preservation of this music. Our shows are
presented from a stage underneath a large, covered pavilion on
the shady banks of the river. Our campground never floods due to
the locks located one mile downriver. Reminiscent of an old-time
camp meeting, fans arrive to camp, visit old friends, fish from the
riverbank, and "pick" their own version of bluegrass around the
campfire. We promote a safe, clean, family-oriented event, and
tolerate no distasteful behavior.
The park is located six miles west of Dunnellon on Highway
40. Three-day tickets are $50. One-day tickets for Friday or
Saturday are $25 each day. Sunday tickets are $12. Special prices
are available for children and juniors. Children under six are free.
Show times are Friday and Saturday 1 to 10 p.m. and Sunday
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday's schedule also includes a morning
worship service at 10:45 a.m. Come for the day or bring your RV
or tent and camp for all three days. We have plenty of primitive
camping spots at $10 each for the weekend (weekend concert
tickets must be purchased in order to camp).
No alcoholic beverages, coolers or pets are allowed in the
concert area, and proper dress is required. Don't forget your
folding chairs for comfort. Food and craft concessions are also
available.

SHERIFf
















welcome to this week's
Sheriff's Corner. I'd
like to change the pace
this week and talk
about a topic that seems to be
avoided by many. The topic is
public records or what is the
publicorecords act and statute.
We get questions all the time
about what we can release to
the public and/or the press.
Florida Statute 119.011
(11) defines "public records"
to include "all documents,
papers, letters, maps, books,
tapes, photographs, films,
sound recordings, data
processing software, or other
material, regardless of the
physical form, characteristics,
or means .of transmission,
made:or' received pu rsuant

in connection with the


THE PUBLIC


RECORDS ACT


AND STATUTE

SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH


transaction of official business
by any agency." That, to say
the least, is quite a mouthful.
At first glance, it seems that
anything and everything can
be examined or made public
record.
The Florida Supreme Court
has interpreted this definition
to encompass all materials
made or received by an agency
in connection with official
business which are used to
perpetuate, communicate or
formalize knowledge. All
such materials, regardless of
whether they are final form,
are open to public inspection
unless the legislation
has exempted them from
disclosure. Again, quite a
mouthful. Let's seehat. this
all means.
As youknow, we investigate


many


crimes. One common aspect
is that all of these crimes have
victims. One of the previously
mentioned exemptions has
to do with certain victims.
Victims of sexual assault,
child abuse and domestic
violence will be exempt.
We won't release the name
of a child that was abused.
Another exemption has to
do with open investigations.
That is, investigations where
an arrest has not been made
and the case is active. We're
not going to release all of the
"fruits" of the investigation.
One aspect of public records
that we must release has to
.do with arrests. If you are
arrested, we have to release
that .information. You read
about those arrests in the
news. of' lnthisl'to]'i' fext


different types of week. Take care..

Need Volunteers for Long-
Term Care Ombudsman
Program
Frank Robinson, an active 85-
year-old community volunteer, is
an Ombudsman.
When an elder is admitted to
a long-term care facility, federal
law mandates that he or she is
given a special set of residents'
rights covering issues ranging
from dignity and respect to mea-
surable quality of life and care.
Volunteer ombudsmen who
are trained by the program and
approved by the Department of
Elder Affairs assess local facili-
ties and respond to residents' in-
dividual complaints to ensure that
their rights are being maintained
and respected.
Sometimes, their job is just to re-
mind residents that they deserve
to be treated with respect and
dignity, Robinson said.
"Some don't realize that even if
they are in a facility, they have the
same rights they had before, and
they do not have to fear retalia-
tion if they speak up," he said. "If
they don't have a loving, caring
family available, they are in there
by themselves. It is rewarding to
help them with their problems."
While volunteers come from all
backgrounds and experiences,
according to Robinson, he said
many share a few important char-
acteristics.
"Ombudsmen should be com-
fortable working with all kinds of


people, because we work with all
kinds," Robinson said. "They also
should be persistent, because we
do not always get what we are
asking for the first time. There is
a balance of having a good rela-
tionship with facility administra-
tors and standing up for someone
to get things done. It is a great
service to help people."
While the program is one of the
largest long-term care ombuds-
man programs in the country and
currently has more than 300 vol-
unteers; with more than 150,000
residents in Florida's long-term
care facilities, the need for more
volunteers like Frank Robinson is
critical.
"We are fortunate to have so
many dedicated volunteers
throughout the state," said State
Long-Term Care Ombudsman
Brian Lee. "But with growing
demands, our volunteers need
help. By advocating for residents'
rights, we ensure that they and
their families and loved ones
have peace of mind and enjoy an
acceptable quality of life."
Residents, family members,
friends and concerned citizens
are encouraged to contact the
program for help in resolving the
issues they face at long-term
care facilities, and ombudsmen
personally visit the residents in
their facilities to look into their
concerns and provide empower-
ment and assistance in resolving
them.
All program services, including
individualized response to
residents' concerns, are free and
confidential. A long-term care
ombudsman program exists in
each state throughout the U.S.,
as mandated by the federal
Older Americans Act. Long-term
care facility residents, family
members and Florida residents
interested in volunteering with
a local council, accessing the
program's services or learning
more about residents' rights may
call toll-free 1-888-831-0404 or

MISS HONEY SAYS . .


Monday, March 26, 2007 2:30 a.m. Good morning.
Ready or not here I am again just like a bad penny!
Always turning up when least expected and rolling,
rolling silverware! Uh huh, do too! Oh yeah I, Miss
Honey took trip all by myself to Newberry Saturday
morning. Yeah, went "yard saleing". Just getting away
from Bronson.
My friend Mattie and I went to Gainesville this weekend.
We went shopping and had lunch at the Cracker Barrel.
All my puppies have a new home and Misty and
Sweetpea can start al over again! Uh huh can too! I
am really surrounded by love "puppy love". Sweetpea
is asleep on the back of my recliner. Little Bit is asleep
on the foot rest, and Misty is on the chair arm and Sugar
is on the couch. Now if that isn't love tell me what is,
okay?
My mind just went blank, yes I do have a mind, just
don't always use it, don't want to wear it our! I might
really need it one day!
I have a lot to do today, but no one to make me do it.But
it will get done, I promise. I think I will make this short
and sweet, so until next week I'll say may God bless
each of you and may all your wishes come true, and may
God take a liking to you.

So says,


Miss

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 22, at the
Levy County Quilt museum. Our day started with 16
quilters who came over from the Villages. Some had never
been our way, and it was great to meet and greet each one.
Eleanora Orlando was invited to come and tell of her trip to
Romania, where she took quilt supplies to teach the women
to quilt. They have no machines, no fabric or thread. She
told of her time there and all wanted her to stay. She and
her husband John are missionaries. What a trip to always
remember!
Our watermelon quilt is done and we will be taking
donations from now until the festival when we will give it
away at the Queen Contest.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday, and did we have
a great time planting tomatoes, beans, squash, pepper,
cucumbers, peanuts and garlic. Some of the boys have
never planted, but they learn in hurry. We hope one day
they will have a garden, as they know how to plant. They
will learn how to fertilize and water, and in time they will
harvest their work. Thanks Lancaster.
Our dinner was chicken and dumpling, noodles, macaroni
and cheese, slaw, cauliflower, greens, okra and tomatoes,
Betty's lemon pie, Marie's chocolate pie, and homemade
cookies. We had so much we had to put in extra tables. The
ladies really enjoyed the lunch. There were 20 members
and 18 guests.

(
























Hanchar again led off the
inning by safely reaching
base. This time it was single
between the shortstop and
third baseman. He was
moved over to second base
and then scored as senior
centerfielder Eddie Carter's
looping Texas-Leaguer
was just out of the reach of
Bronson second baseman
Luke Morrison. The score
made it a 2-0 game.
It looked like the Eagles
were all but done after the
next inning as the Indians
built a 3 -0 lead. The Indians
went to playing "small ball"
as Hancher scored during
the fielder's choice senior
catcher Chad Hodges had hit
into. Junior third baseman
Chase Gregory's walk loaded
the bases to set the stage.
However, with four runs
on five hits and several,
walks, the Eagles not only
came right back in their half
of the inning but took the
lead. They sent nine men to
the plate during their turn at
the plate. Luke Morrison's
two-out liner put the Eagles
ahead by a 4-3 score.
In the top of the fifth,
Chiefland tied the game to
set up the finish. In what
would be a foreshadowing
of the game's climatic end,
senior second baseman Isaac
Hardee led off the top of
t the fifth and reached base
on a Bronson miscue. He
was moved to third base and
scored as
Hanchar also safely
reached base due to. an
Eagles' error. Galpin doubled
and scored two runs. HqssclI
was 3-4 with four runs batted
in. Hardee and Carter also
played a major role, with two
hits apiece.


when we put together our
schedule for this season."
Bowers' performance was
so commanding that he
threw only 78 pitches during
his seven-inning outing. Of
those 78 pitches, 54 were
strikes. Not only was he in
command of the game, he
was efficient as he got ahead
in the count against 21 of the
28 hitters he faced.
While Bowers was keeping
the home team from an all
out uprising, Williston's
offense exploded in the third.
They pushed across three
runs in that inning and then
followed the first scoring of
the game with another five
tallies in the next frame.
Both times the Red Devils
got their lead-off man on
base as they nished the
game failing to achieve that
statistic only once.
The fatal blow this time
was delivered by Trip
Fugate. He blasted a Fort
White offering over the left
field fence, bringing home
three tallies and putting
the Red Devils up on the
scoreboard by an 8-0 count.
The Red Devils finished
the game with 15 hits.
In compjqfinghis best
performance of the season so
far, Bowers upped his record
to 2-3. 1
"As I said about the game
against Newsome, we
got a lotPut of the trip to
Key West, even if it didn't
translate on the scoreboard.
One of the things we got
that showed in this game
was the consistency of doing
the same things that win
ballgames from one game to
the next."
"We got the lead off man on
over the last six innings and
scored in all but one of those
innings. Once again a couple
of guys get a hit and it
becomes contagious. Along
with hitting with runners on
base and our pitcher getting
ahead in the count, the lead
off hitters getting on base
consistently made for an
almost identical game."

Looking to advertise your restaurant in the Levy County Journal's newest

Well, here's a little
insight to what the

"Restaurants in Review"
is all about. Each week

as a rotation I, Rhonda,

will head out to one
of our fine restaurants
advertised here to check

them out. I will be re-
porting back to you, our
reader, about what I ate,
saw and how the overall

picture of the restaurant

is. We hope that this

endeavor will create a
bigger draw of
advertisers for our fine
folks to see, visit and
enjoy all the great food
out there in our
Tri-County area.


In the second of three
games last week against
district rivals, the Red
Devils didn't score until the
third inning of their contest
against Fort White, but the
result was the same as it had
been on Tuesday night.
For the second consecutive
game the Red Devils won
by a score of 12-5 and it
was, once again, because
of a dominant pitching
performance, getting the
lead-off batter on base and
collecting a'deluge of hits
with runners on base.
This time it was D.J.
Bowers on the mound whose
performance was dominant.
He went the distance in
scattering nine hits while
striking out five batters and
walking only ond. More than
half the hits came during the
last two innings, which was
long after the outcome of the
game had been decided.
"It was definitely Bowers'
best pitching performance of
the season so far and it also
was probably the best outing
of anybody on the staff so'
far this year as well," head
coach Jim Smith said. "We
started slower than we had
on Tuqsd4y.,,Llt oiice we
made the adjustments at the
plate the hits came and most
of them were with runners
on base.
"It was a sign of maturity,
which the team has been
showing more and more
as we get deeper into the
season. Which is what we
were trying to accomplish

SPORTS WRITER
This year's version of the
Bronson Eagles'baseball
squad has struggled. For
this year's version of the
Chiefland Indians' baseball
squad it hasn't been quite as
easy as their record indicates,
but nonetheless, they have
had a much more successful
season.
Even with the disparity
in their seasons, when the
cross county rivals met last
week, the discrepancy was
far from being on display as
the Indians pulled out a 5-4
victory in eight innings.
"They were ready to play,"
Chiefland head coach Kyle
Parnell said. "It was a tough-
fought victory, because they
didn't give up."
The winning run came
when the Eagles' failed to
cleanly handle the ball after
Indians'junior outfielder
Matt Williams'put it in play.
Matt Carter who had led off
the inning by also safely
reaching base on an error,
crossed the plate with the
eventual winning run.
Both errors occurred
after Bronson's Dean
Cobb induced the first two
Chiefland batters of the
inning to hit into outs.
With the Indians'primed
to up their record to 10-0
for the season and Bronson
seemingly having the wind
taken out of their sails, it
seemed the last three outs
of the game was simply a
formality.,
But the Eagles showed
some "coming of age" as
they gave the Indians all they
could handle before falling.
Cobb and Virgil Greenlee
led of Bronson's half of
the inning with singles off
Ory Pitts, who had held
the Eagles scoreless for the
previous two frames.
Danny Galpin relieved
Pitts. His first order of
business was an intentional
