Residents and officials celebrate the

decision to build a tri-county hospital

he band played, the
audience applauded,
the performers
beamed on stage. The official
announcement that the Tri-
County Hospital is coming
to Chiefland was not set in
a news conference. It was a
community celebration.
Representatives from Levy,
Dixie and Gilchrist counties as
well as state elected officials
were on hand at the event on
vacant land behind Wal-Mart
where the new hospital will be
constructed.
Ameris Health Systems
Chairman Sam Lewis said the
Ameris officials as well as state
and local elected officials have
worked for almost four years to
bring.the Tri-County Hospital to
Chiefland, and it will take a few
more years to get'the hospital
built and accepting patients.
"We've still got two or
three more years to go," Lewis
said. "You don't see a hospital
behind me."
But with the support of
every elected official in the
three counties, there will be a
hospital, he said.
Robert Bauer, president of
Ameris Health Systems, said
the medical community is as
solidly behind the new hospital
as are the elected officials.

evy County School
Board members
will consider giving
by deed or long-term
lease three property lots
to the City of Chiefland
to use for a skate park.
Superintendent CliffNorris
told board members that he
had received a letter from
Chiefland Mayor Betty
Walker last week. Norris
clearly favored the idea,
saying, "If we could work
out an agreement with the
city I think it would benefit
the kids in the area."
Walker's request is for,
"...a long-term lease with
the city or deed the property
to the city with a reverter
clause as long as it remains a
skate park."
The School Board will
discuss the issue during their
next meeting, to be held
May 8 at 7 p.m. Norris will
ask that a representative
from Chiefland to appear to
answer any questions board
members may have.

Tri-county Hospital's approval.

hard for the hospital that he
feels like he is a member of the
extended families of people in
the tri-county area. He said that
as of last week, 80 doctors, from
as far away as Gainesville and
Crystal River, had signed up
as future staff members at the
hospital.
Levy Commission Chairman
Sammy Yearty said that with
72,000 people in the tnri-county
area, a hospital is a necessity.
"I think it's a wonderful thing
for the tri-county area," he said
in an interview.
Proponents of the
hospital had to overcome
some opposition, including
opposition from North Florida


Regional Medical Center in
Gainesville and from Nature
Coast Regional Hospital in
Williston.
Late last year, the state
Agency for Health Care
Administration denied a
certificate of need for the
hospital. The agency noted that
growth in the region was slower
than expected and that the
distances to hospitals in urban
areas were about normal for a
rural area. Another factor was
that the hospital would accept
patients at the expense of other
hospitals.
But with overwhelming
support at the state and local
level, the state Agency for


Health Care Administration
issued a certificate of need on
April 4, clearing the way for the
hospital construction.
State Representative Will
Kendrick, R-Carrabelle, said in
an interview that a strong effort
at the state level helped get the
hospital approved. Gov. Charlie
Crist backed the hospital
proposal and influenced its
approval.
"He saw the need for health
care and did get involved,"
Kendrick said. "He felt the
decision should be about health
care. He was very clear."
The celebration included
music by Bronson High School
band..


The Hailes, named by the Greater Chiefland Area Chamber
of Commerce Citizens of the Year, relax at their home in
Chiefland.


Ernest and Julia Haile

named chamber

Citizens of the Year

BY LARRY SCHNELL
NEWS EDITOR AND STAFF WRITER

Ernest and Julia Haile, lifelong educators, volunteers and
communityleaders, were recognized last week by the Greater
Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce as Citizens of the Year.
"They're beautiful people," said chamber President Bob
Williams. "I was totally elated to know that they were nominated.
It made me feel good in my heart to tell them they had won. I had
fun trying to get them to attend our meeting without telling them
they were getting the award."
The chamber recognized the Hailes at its annual banquet
April 10 at the Tommy Usher Center. The Hailes were nominated
by County Commissioner Nancy Bell, who described them as
her "second parents" because of the guidance and support they
provided her over the years.
Bell said people who serve in the interest of their community
deserve thc highest recognition. The Hailes shared their talents
in education and gave their support to individuals and to the
community, she said.
"To me, it's giving back to your community and sharing your
gifts and talents," Bell said.
The Hailes now their 80s are lifelong educators who began
their careers in the age of segregation and made the transition to
an integrated school system, all the while keeping the students'
interest foremost in their minds.
Ernest Haile appreciated the chamber's recognition.
"It makes you feel more proud being here than before I received
it," he said. "I feel grateful to the people of this community."
Emrnest Haile began his career as a math teacher in Bountstown
in Calhoun County, then served as vice principal for five years
in Valdosta, Ga. He came to Chiefland in 1957 as principal of
Chiefland Junior High, a segregated school.
Julia Haile taught home economics at Chiefland High School
until her retirement in 1987. The next year, she ran for School
Board and won. She served two four-year terms. Her focus on
the board was on students and how the School Board could better
serve them, Bell said.
Bell recalls helping Julia Haile campaign for Levy County
School Board. Instead of buying signs, Julia Haile and her
campaign workers including Bell worked on her porch cutting and
painting signs by hand. Her support was extensive and community
wide, and people gave their time as well as their money to support
her candidacy, Bell said. Julia Haile was always positive.
"If you get negative attitudes about things, negative things
happen," Julia Haile said.
Now in her retirement, Julia Haile misses the high level of
community involvement she enjoyed when she held public office.
She is active in her church, the First Methodist Church, where she
has sung in the choir.
The Hailes and the chamber's president, Williams, also
executive director of the Levy County Housing Authority, have
been friends for some 11 years. One of the first things Julia Haile
did when she met Williams was to get him into her church.
"Theyjust became a family to me," Williams said. "They were
both very involved. They always had something good to say about
everybody."
Williams ran for School Board and lost. "They were both very
encouraging for me but made it very clear that I was running for a
position, not against a person."
Ernest Haile attends the St. James AME church. The couple has no
differences over their involvement in different churches, he said.
"To me, all of them are one," Ernest Haile said. .

NEWS EDITOR AND STAFF WRITER

Inside the town of Bronson's
historic Jackson house, it is hard
to envision that city activities
will take place there. Some walls
are knocked out, some beams
are rotten, and the roof's rotten
rafters are sagging. The windows
are broken, and the heart-pine
floors are covered with a gray
dust.
But crews are working to put
the building back together, and
Bronson Manager Jim Cornelius
has no trouble envisioning
the renovated building with
gleaming wood floors, new
thermal windows and freshly
painted walls. City activities
will take place there, probably
sometime late this year.
"We hope we can make it
the prettiest building in Levy
County," he said last week on a
tour of the renovations.
The city does not have
a completion date for the
Jackson house, also known
as the Stokes house for a later
owner. It all depends on what
the construction crews find as
they explore old walls, beams,
floors and rafters. The workers
have to evaluate each piece of
wood in the building, which is
at least 120 years old. No soft
or rotten wood will be covered
up this time, as it was in the last
renovation, Cornelius said.
Just last week, contractor
Mike Owens' renovation work
turned up a few remnants of
the building's history. The
original builders apparently
used newspaper to pad the
wallpaper. One badly torn piece
of a Savannah, Ga., newspaper
is from 1776. Inside a piece
of molding, Owens found a
label from the manufacturer,
Penniman & Co., Builders
Furnishings Mill, Jacksonville
Fla. Written in pencil is "Dr.
G.M. Jackson, Bronson," the


original owner. An old game
called "Toss-O" turned up.
It has little cups in a circle,
and players scored points by
getting a small ball to land
in the cups. A tattered school
book from 1908 also turned
up, as well as a portion of a
mechanical device that is as yet
unidentified.
An earlier town
administration did a shoddy
renovationjob, Cornelius said,
and historical relics may have
been lost in the process. In the
earlier renovation, a roof was
put on over rotten rafters and the
house was set on an inadequate
foundation. The sagging
roof will be repaired, and the
foundation already has been
shored up with extra concrete
supports.
There's some good news in
the renovation. The old windows
match standard size windows
today, so the bill for modem
thermal windows will be a
modest $3,400.
The best news is that the
work is progressing with the
help of a grant of $156,500
from the Florida Department
of State's historic preservation
fund.
The council has the final say
in how the building is used, but
as Cornelius stands in the main
room looking out over the porch,
he can see a town meeting with
council members and the public
gathering in a spacious meeting
room with 10-foot-high ceilings
and large windows looking
out over the porch. A couple
rooms off the main room could
accommodate the town clerk and
the manager.
Bronson Mayor Beatrice
Mongo said the town agrees
with Cornelius that meeting
room and offices will go in the
building when it is complete.
The present town hall may
be knocked down and a new
community center built in its


place, she said.
While the traditional front
of the building looks out over a
porch to Oak Street, this will be
considered the back when the
building is done. A parking lot,
porches and handicap access will
be at the rear of the building.
Already new French doors
have been installed there. The
town is exploring the idea of
putting a deck with a gabled roof
extending out from the porch for
community functions.
The renovation is more than
a project to increase the town's
office space. It is a project to
preserve part of the town's
history.
A letter in the state files
dates the.house back to about
1886, but town officials believe
it is older than that. The 1876
newspaper does not provide a
definitive date, because workers
could have used old newspaper
when they put up the wallpaper.
The central part of the house was
built by James Madison Jackson
Jr., a Bronson physician who
left in 1896 for Miami, where
he made a name for himself in
what was then a small town. The
Jackson 'Memorial Hospital was
named for him.
The Stokes family bought
the house in 1928, and to many
people in Bronson, the house is
known as the Stokes house. The
town calls it the Jackson house
to emphasize its historical value.
Perkins State Bank donated
the Jackson house to the town
in 1997 and kicked in $25,000
for the early and, as it turned
out, inadequate renovations. The
2,800-square-foot building was
moved to its present location in
1998 for $4,100.
The house, atop a hill behind
town hall and the emergency
services building and shrouded
in Spanish moss from numerous
oak trees, has a commanding
presence even in its unfinished
state.un


Bronsons historic Jackson house will be town hall


The town's historic Jackson house from Oak Street shows what will be the back of the building

Letters


to the


Editor

Editor
Florida TaxWatch applauds the Florida Senate for
their bi-partisan initiative to provide immediate relief
to all of Florida's property taxpayers who have been
affected by the increase in spending and taxation.
Taxpayers deserve, and must get, immediate
legislative relief now and this plan would provide that.
The Senate's plan contains several concepts
that have previously been recommended by Florida
TaxWatch, including a roll back of taxes and limits on
future tax growth, as well as a $25,000 exemption
for tangible personal property. This plan also
addresses the inequities of the "highest and best use"
assessment issue that Florida TaxWatch has asked
legislators to examine.
This plan is a good step in the right direction and
will meet the Florida TaxWatch call for tax relief
now, but most of the inequities created by Save Our
Homes amendment remain. Florida TaxWatch also
recommends that the Taxation and Budget Reform
Commission continue to examine property tax reform
with special attention being paid to the remaining
inequities.

Dear Mr. Andrews,
Thank you for purchasing my feeder steer this year at
the Suwannee Valley River Fair. I really appreciate the
community support and your generosity.

STAFF WRITER


show hosts have been
pressing the limits of the
Constitution's free speech
amendment since Lenny
Bruce challenged how far
he could go in the 1950s.
He stood up on a nightclub
stage and said every vulgar
word he could think of.
It has always seemed
to me that those who
thought vulgar language
equaled free speech were
misguided. Freedom of
speech does not mean we
can use foul language in
public discourse. It means
simply and profoundly
- that we can freely and
openly disagree with our
government without fear of
condemnation.
I feel that all types of
public discourse should
be respectful. Even, and
especially, when one is
expressing disagreement
with another.
Last week's overdose
of media coverage on
Imus, his comment and his
subsequent firing made me
re-examine all that. While
I was puzzled as to why
he would even make such
a comment about young
women one would think
were among a generation's


best and brightest, I was
also concerned about the
attention the incident drew.
It seems to me that
talk show hosts, and
even some so-called
serious journalists, make
outrageous comments
all the time. They insult
people whose political
opinions are inconvenient,
they group whole classes of
people together and blame
them for all the nation's
problems and they spread
hate and discontent like
nobody's business. If I
find myself tuned into one
of these highly offensive
programs, I simply change
the channel. Or turn off the
television or radio.
I have changed channels
to avoid listening to rants
by Imus as well as most
of his compatriots in the
namecialling gamie.jSo'I :
Will.dt'miss hisg9sh6w. '
However, I wonder how
all the media can pick
up this one story and run
with it as if nothing else is
happening worldwide, and
how two men can stand up
and call for MSNBC and
CBS to fire the man. And
how it is their voices the
media giants listen to -


especially since at least one
of those men has indulged
in public name calling via a
racial slur himself.
I have a good friend who
lamented the loss of Imus.
She said he was really
truly funny. And that he
lambasted everyone, from
the pope to the president.
He apparently had no
sacred cows.
Just what is freedom of
speech? It certainly does
not mean that slander or
character defamation is
tolerated. After all, there are
laws against that.
I do not know if he
should have been fired or
not. It would seem that the
court of public opinion
- via ratings would have
the final word.
Yes, I worry when I hear
hate language carelessly
tossed around: I. just' hoS,
if we are going to call this,'
character defamation or
slander, and fire a man
because of it, we also
would apply the same
thinking to all forms of
public discourse. If not, we
have separate sets of laws
for separate sets of people.
Sounds like separate but
unequal to me.m


Last week Don Imus
was fired from not one
job but two. I recall being
fired from one job in my
life, but never two. I had
taken a job at a specialty
wine and cheese shop.
I was young, in college
and had taken the job
before the holiday season.
Although no reason was
given, I suspect my layoff
came from the post-season
sales slowdown. Of
course, I realize it could
have just as easily come
from a customer unhappy
with my service.
Imus was fired by
corporate executives
worried their advertising
revenues would slow
down after a racially
charged comment he had
made. This in spite 6fo
the fact that he frequently
insulted a wide variety of
people from all over the
political, sexual and racial
spectrum. He was after
all but one of the crop of
"shock jocks."
Most of his colleagues
remain employed.

Noah scheduled for

talk on upcoming

storm season
Daniel Noah with the National Weather Service will be
coming to Cedar Key April 23 for a presentation on Dangerous.
Skies. His talk will be at the Cedar Key Museum State Park at
7 p.m. Earlier in the day, he will give a talk at the Cedar Key
School to the Middle School students.
Extreme weather seems to be on the rise in the United States
over the last decade. The 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons
were record breaking. Hurricane Katrina was an extraordinarily
powerful and deadly hurricane that carved a wide swath of
catastrophic damage and inflicted large loss of life. It was the
costliest and one of the five deadliest hurricanes to ever strike
the United States. This multimedia presentation will explore
hurricane development and forecast accuracy, the dangers,
associated with hurricanes at landfall, and the 2007 hurricane 1
forecast for Cedar Key.
Daniel Noah has been with the National Weather Service for
17 years and is currently the Warning Coordination Meteorologist
for the Tampa Bay office. He has forecast tornadoes in
Wisconsin, blizzards and severe cold in North Dakota. He
currently forecasts tropical meteorology in Florida. He has
experienced firsthand the power of hurricanes while forecasting
on-site for emergency management in Fort Myers when Charley
and Wilma hit the state.
For directions to the State Museum, please call 543-5350.
SThe Cedar Key Museum State Park and the St. Clair Whitman

Swimming pool

safety month
The backyard pool is on the top of the list for a fun and
healthy activity all year in Florida. Now that school is wrapping
up and the weather is warming, the swimming pool is one of the
most common ways to stay cool.
Florida Governor Charlie Crist signed a proclamation
to observe April as Swimming Pool Safety Month. For an
enjoyable swimming season, the Florida Swimming Pool
Association asks that residents take time to review swimming
pool safety tips.
Above all, constant adult supervision is the primary
precaution for which there is no substitute. Never take your
eyes off a child when he or she is in or near a body of water, not
even for a second.
Have one person selected as the "Designated Pool Watcher."
This person can enforce pool rules such as use of slides,
appropriate diving areas, pool games and overall safety of
the swimmers. When supervision is not available, even for a
moment, close the pool. It is also a good idea to have a family
member trained in CPR. Instruction is available from local
community organizations.
When entertaining a group, plan ahead for the number of
guests and their swimming skills. Be sure there is sufficient
supervision for those in the pool. Alcohol should be carefully
supervised near the pool area since it slows reaction time and
can lead to people trying things they normally would not, such
as horseplay or swimming and diving competitions. Use good
judgment to protect yourself, your family and your guests.
The Florida Swimming Pool Association hosts a Web site
at www.FloridaPoolePro.com with safety information, pool
maintenance information as well as an "Ask the Expert" area.
A listing of pool and spa professionals searchable by zip code is
also available.
Many communities across Florida are hosting Healthy Kids

Good morning! Here I sit, my pen in hand, just as dumb as
any man! My mind won't work, it's on the blink, I do declare I
cannot think! Yes Donald I do have a brain, I just don't always
use it, uh huh, do too.
Yes I am surrounded by love "puppy love' that's true love.
Sweet Pea is on the back of my recliner, Little Bit is on the
couch, Sugar Bugger is on a small table in front of the window,
Misty is in the window behind the rocker and Sweet Pea is in his
inside pen, but he isn't shut up, the door is wide open, he went in
of his own free will!
Mr. Eddie gave me an old wheelbarrow to plant flowers in and
I bought some potting soil and flower seed. I'm gonna plant them
then sit down and hope they bloom. I'm not an outdoors person.
I don't like to get sand on my toes.
Well we didn't get any of the bad weather Sunday after all.
Isn't God good to us? I went over to Williston and got some
Kentucky Fried Chicken and one piece of fried catfish Sunday
evening. A & A was closed and I had to go somewhere, uh huh,
did too! But, I was down at A&A yesterday morning! Jim and
Annie aren't going to get rid of me that easy. Oh no! I'm gonna
roll that silverware!! I have known Jim since he was knee-high
to a puddle duck, and also knew his mother and dad and his sister
Sharon. Whoops, I'll be told my age! But that's okay, God has
been very good to me and I am glad to still be around at the age
of 77. Oh where would I be without Jesus and all my friends?
I will make this short and sweet and I'll be back next week.
Until then God bless each of you.
So says,

Miss HotAney

Local business owner Doug King also spoke in favor of the
city developing a vision statement. Noting he had grown up in
New Port Richey, where "growth came over them like a wave,"
he said he would "like to see a community center where the
nucleus of town is. He added there is "a need to put new energy
into the vision committee," adding that an older plan from the
1990s was good, but now rapid changes meant a new plan was
needed.
Chiefland's Vision Committee meets the second Tuesday of
each month at noon at Bell's Restaurant. Committee members
want to see city residents as well as those who live in adjacent
areas attend..


ome area business owners are asking their city to help
them design a roadmap to Chiefland's future. Orthodontist
Bill Martin asked for a meeting of commissioners, city
department heads, Vision Committee members and interested
residents to formulate a vision to guide the city's growth.
"We are at a pivotal time in Chiefland," he said. "A good
vision of where we're going and how we're going to get there is
critical."
Martin said there is a need to be specific, to draw 5-, 10- and
15-year plans. Such plans are critical, he said, "So we're not
drug around by a bunch of developers." He said whether it was
wanted or not, growth was going to happen. "How do we create

hief Financial Officer Alex Sink announced recently that 11 new windstorm inspection
firms have been selected to aid Floridians interested in hardening their homes through
the MySafe Florida Home (MSFH) program. These firms were chosen based through a
competitive bidding process and their capacity to perform a minimum number of quality
inspections each week, and in-house resources available to manage applicants to the program.
Each inspection firm must ensure that their inspectors pass background checks, fingerprinting
and drug testing. Each inspector must also undergo training on mitigation techniques and the
MSFH program.
"These inspection firms had to meet the strictest of criteria in order to be considered for this
program," said CFO Sink. "We want homeowners to be highly satisfied with the services they
receive from the My Safe Florida Home Program once it expands statewide."
Together, the 11 inspection firms have been selected to serve in specific regions of the sate
to ensure maximum statewide service. After a 60-day ramp-up period, each firm has agreed
to conduct at least 1,000 inspections a week. Inspection firms were selected to cover specific
regions:
Panhandle Region 1) AmeriPro Inspection and


The pilot phase of the
MSFHprogram was launched
in August. During the MSFH
program's 2006pilotphase,
more than 14,000free wind

in 17 counties. Along with
an inspection report, these
14, 000 homeowners received

On April 20 Florida's Financial Fitness Friday Florida
Institute of CPAs members across the state will be available to the
public for guidance on conducting an annual financial "fitness"
checkup and to answer basic financial questions.
Florida residents will be able to "ask an expert" free of charge by
calling the FICPA Financial Fitness Hotline at 1-800-342-3197, Ext.
554, or posting a question on the FICPA Web site at www.ficpa.org.
CPA volunteers will take calls and respond to questions from 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m.

to our communities," says Ken Strauss, FICPA Financial Literacy
Committee chair.
"We encourage everyone to complete a financial fitness checkup
at least once a year. By providing callers access to CPAs free of

UF veterinarians seek dogs with melanoma
to participate in new vaccine study
University of Florida veterinarians are seeking dogs with
melanoma to participate in an ongoing study of a new vaccine
designed to fight the spread of the common skin cancer.
"We are currently looking at the effect of this vaccine in dogs
that have the disease in all stages, from the least severe to the
most advanced," said Rowan Milner, D.V.M., chief of the UF
Veterinary Medical Center's oncology service. "The vaccine we
have developed stimulates the natural killer cells in the body that act
almost like Pac-men to destroy the tumors."
On March 26, the U.S. Department of Agriculture approved a
conditional license for a canine melanoma therapeutic vaccine to
Merial. The product licensed was that tested in the AMC study,
Milner said.
Melanoma is unusual among cancers affecting dogs and people
in that in some cases the body is able to recognize the disease as
foreign and can develop an immune reaction to it. In humans,
melanomas are associated with ultraviolet light, but this is not
thought to be a risk factor in dogs. In dogs, skin tumors can appear
anywhere on the body, but are most frequently seen in the nail beds,
in the eye and in the mouth, where they are the most aggressive and
malignant, veterinarians say.
Oral melanomas are most commonly seen in highly pigmented
breeds such as chow chows, German shepherds, poodles and
schnauzers. Signs that indicate oral melanoma might be present
include growths appearing in the dog's mouth, bad breath and
drooling.
Veterinarians typically treat melanoma-afflicted dogs with
surgery to remove the tumor, followed by radiation of the primary
site. The biggest threat to a dog's survival comes if and when the
tumor spreads to the lymph nodes, then to the lungs.
Milner said the melanoma vaccine would not be a replacement
for surgery or radiation because the local disease still has to be
treated.
The UF study will accept 60 cases. Participating dogs will be
followed for up to two to three years as part of the study protocols.
Anyone seeking more information about the melanoma vaccine
study should contact UF's Veterinary Medical Center at 352-392-
4700, ext. 4700.

Farm Bureau sponsors youth speech contest
The Levy County Farm Bureau is sponsoring a youth speech
contest April 26 at the Farm Bureau office in Bronson. This contest
is open to all students between the ages of 14 and 18 who are
residents of Levy County.
The purpose of the youth speech contest is to promote a stronger
interest and clearer understanding of the many aspects of agriculture.

for youths to gain knowledge, appreciation and understanding of
agriculture and to help promote its many values and virtues.
This year's t6pic, which is selected by the Florida Farm Bureau's
Women's Leadership Committee, is "How will the global market
affect agriculture in the next five years?"
Cash prizes in the amounts of $100, $75 and $50 will be awarded
to the first, second and third place winners.
Winners of the county contest go on to compete at the field district
level. Florida Farm Bureau has eight field districts. Winners of the
district contests will compete at the state level during Florida Farm
Bureau's annual meeting in October.
For more information or to register for the contest, please contact
Teresa Watson at the Levy County Farm Bureau, 352 486-2135.

National Volunteer Week is April 15-21
Volunteers needed to help homeless pets
Ten thousand points of light represents the number of animal
welfare organizations that post their homeless pets on Petfinder.
corn.. National Volunteer Week, April 15-21, is an appropriate


time to recognize these organizations and the tens of thousands of
volunteers who work within them.
In the 1830s, the Frenchman, Alexis de Tocqueville, noticed
Americans' willingness to get involved in a cause greater than
themselves. It defined the American character, and it's still true
today. According to a government survey, more than 61 million
Americans donated their time to charity in 2006.
Nowhere is it more evident than in animal welfare. "I can't say
enough about the altruism of these volunteers," said Betsy Saul,
cofounder of Petfinder.com. "They go way beyond what anyone
would expect in terms of giving of themselves. For most of them it's
not a once a week job it's a 24/7 commitment. They are a largely
unsung group of heroes."
According to social activist, John Gardner, "almost every major
social breakthrough in America has originated in this voluntary
sector," and Saul believes that the impact of volunteers on animal
welfare is changing its face today. "We have seen an explosion of
rescue groups since we began Petfinder.com in 1996," Saul said,
"and we believe the work of these volunteers has had a positive
impact on decreasing the euthanasia rate in this country."
To encourage volunteerism, Petfinder.com has a volunteer
database where visitors may register to help their local animal
welfare organizations. Anyone interested in volunteering can visit
http://www.petfinder.com to sign up.

Is Your Home Safe from Electrical Hazards?
Your home is your castle, whether you live in a tiny studio
apartment in the city or a sprawling mansion in the suburbs. But is
your castle really as safe and secure as you think?
Most people don't realize the potential danger posed by electrical
hazards hidden in the walls of their homes or lying unseen on
their grounds. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission, more than 400 people are electrocuted in the United
States every year. An additional 500 lives are claimed and nearly
1.6 billion in property damage is caused by electrically related fires.
Given these alarming statistics and with May as National Electrical
Safety Month, now is a good time to follow this checklist from the
Leviton Institute to ensure your "castle" is truly safe.
Don't overload outlets: With power strips and surge protectors,
it's all too easy to add more appliances to an outlet than it was
designed to handle. By overloading circuits you can create a fire
hazard.
Outlets and Switches: Replace any outlet or switch that has
broken parts or cracks, feels warm to the touch, or has plugs that
hang loose.
Power Cords and Extension Cords: Examine power and
extension cords for fraying or cracking. Replace taped-over cords,
or those showing wear. Never run cords or extensions under carpets,
rugs, or furniture, where damage might be hidden.
Use of Power Tools: Don't use power tools, even if they are
properly grounded, in wet or damp spots.
Install GFCIs and Test Them Monthly: GFCIs (Ground Fault
Circuit Interrupters) have prevented hundreds of electrocutions
and untold numbers of injuries since the early 1970s. The National
Electrical Code requires GFCI-equipped outlets in rooms with a
water source or damp ground such as kitchens, bathrooms, garages,
laundry rooms, crawlspaces, and in outdoor locations like hot tubs
or poolside, where they should be equipped with weatherproof
covers. Testing them is simple. Just follow these three easy steps:
1. Plug a lamp or radio into the GFCI. Turn on the lamp or radio.
2. Press the TEST button. Lamp or radio should go off. If the lamp
or radio doesn't go off, the GFCI is damaged or was miswired
during installation. Please call a qualified electrician.
,3. Press the RESET button. Lamp or radio should come back on. If
the lamp or radio doesn't come back on, the GFCI is damaged and
must be replaced. Please call a qualified electrician.
If you are not sure that your GFCI is testing and resetting properly
for any reason, play it safe and call a qualified electrician. Be sure
to make your safety inspection a yearly habit and hire a licensed
electrician to conduct an in-depth inspection every 10 years..

IN THIS ISSUE, WE FEATURE TWO MORE LEVY COUNTY TEACHERS OF THE YEAR.

LEVY COUNTY TEACHERS IN CEDAR KEY AND CHIEFLAND ELEMENTARY EARN RECOGNITION


Patricia Jett, Cedar
Key School
Teacher of the
Year ,,
Patricia Jett, a media
specialist and math teacher
at Cedar Key School, has
been employed by the School
Board of Levy County for 11
years. For much of that time ,
she worked as a classroom C -
aide. After earning her,
teacher certification three
years ago, she joined the Cedar Key faculty in her present
position.
With her selection as Teacher of the Year, "Patty" now
has the distinction of being both a Teacher of the Year and
Educational Staff Professional of the Year for Cedar Key
School. She received the ESP award in 1997.
Patty finds that working in a small school has some special
advantages.
"Working at a small Pre-K school gives our school a unique
connected feeling and sense of community. We have the
opportunity to watch students progress all the way through
school. The faculty and staff work well together and put the
needs of the students and school in the forefront."
The faculty and staff also help one another, said Patty, who
praised CKS teacher Linda Campbell as a mentor, and cited
teachers Sheri Johns, DeAnne Watson, Patty Lawrence, and


Charmaine Whitman, and media aide Sue Penny with being
especially helpful during her first year of teaching.
Patty said that the best part of her job is the knowledge that
she is making a difference in the lives of her students.
"The best parts of teaching are the moments when you
realize you have touched a student's life. One of my math
students who was almost phobic about math passed my class
with a feeling she could do algebra and no longer hated math.
Another asked to come down to the Media Center when she
found out she had made a 3 on FCAT math so she could share
her success with me."
Teaching takes lots of talents, but Patty believes that one
of the most important talents is the ability to "light a spark in
students, and keep that spark going." She also believes that
"great teachers are always searching and learning ways to do
their job better."
Patty's interests include drawing, watercolor painting,
journaling and quilting. She also walks from 4-6 miles six days
a week, and enjoys cycling and kayaking, although not as often
as she would like. She and husband, Michael Borelli, have two
grown children, Noah and Rita.

Regina Newton, Chiefland Elementary
School Teacher of the Year
Regina Newton is a third year kindergarten teacher at
Chiefland Elementary School, and taught for nine years in
Citrus County before coming to CES.
Regina praises Chiefland Elementary as a great place to
work, "because we have an outstanding and supportive faculty
and staff. I also love working with the parents and students


here, who always make you feel appreciated."
As teacher with over a decade in the classroom, Regina said
the secret of being a great teacher is "truly loving what you do"
and knowing that what you do can make a real difference in the
lives of children. She credits a great many people with helping
her discover what teaching is all about.
"I feel that many individuals have had an influence on the
teacher I've become. The list ranges from my former teachers,
college professors, and fellow educators, to family, friends, and
even my students."
One of the most rewarding aspects of teaching for Regina
is "watching the children develop a love and curiosity for
learning. Each year it always amazes me how much growth
my kindergarten students demonstrate in only nine and a half
months. Although I have enjoyed every grade I've ever taught,
I particularly love teaching kindergarten, because they seem to
literally absorb everything
I teach them, just like a
sponge."
Students like that demand
a lot of time and attention, .
and Regina said that "finding
enough time in the day" is
one of the biggest challenges
of teaching.
Regina's extracurricular
activities include trail riding
and "showing my mules. I
also enjoy spending time
with my family, friends and
nets."

Pair recognized for contribution to Youth
Hunting Program
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
meeting Wednesday in Tallahassee recognized Jackson County
landowner and businessman Steve Smith and land manager Ray
Windham for their contribution to the Youth Hunting Program of
Florida.
Smith owns Lily Pad Ranch and had never hunted until he
moved to Jackson County. There he met Windham, his neighbor,
and together they worked with the FWC to host a youth hunt
during the 2005-06 hunting season. The hunt was so successful
that the FWC considered it a model for future youth hunts in the
state.
Smith and Windham again hosted a youth hunt during the 2006-
07 general gun season, and the first youth spring turkey hunt just
two weeks ago.
"Both Steve Smith and Ray Windham have worked tirelessly
at each of the youth hunts to meet the needs of the young hunters,
their parents and volunteers. We are indebted to them for their
contribution to educating and training a future generation of
hunters," said Bill Cline, the FWC's section leader for hunting
safety and public shooting ranges.

New rules approved for saltwater reef fish
Regulations are changing for several recreational and
commercial marine reef fish species in waters offshore of
Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved a series of rule amendments last week that will bring
Florida regulations in line with recent rule changes for federal
waters adjacent to state waters.
Florida state waters extend nine nautical miles offshore in the
Gulf of Mexico and three miles offshore in the Atlantic Ocean. So-
called "federal" waters, also known as the Exclusive Economic
Zone or EEZ, extend farther offshore beyond state waters. The
FWC has regulatory jurisdiction in Florida waters, and federal
agencies and councils manage fishing in federal waters.
The new reef fish rules approved by the FWC help make
Florida's rules consistent with recent federal regulatory
changes, and as a result, minimize public confusion and aid rule
enforcement. They take effect July 1.
In the Atlantic, the rules allow recreational fishers to keep one
golden tilefish and one snowy grouper within the five-fish daily
aggregate grouper bag limit. The daily recreational bag limit for
Atlantic red porgy will jump from one fish to three fish per person,
and the recreational minimum size limit for Atlantic vermilion
snapper will rise from 11 to 12 inches total length. The rules also
set commercial trip limits in the Atlantic that are the same as trip
limits in federal waters.
Rules for Atlantic black sea bass include increasing the
recreational minimum size limit from 10 inches total length to 11
inches total length in 2007, and then to 12 inches total length in
2008, and establishing a June 1 May 31 harvest season. The rules
also require a minimum two-inch mesh for the back panel of black
sea bass traps in the Atlantic, and require removal of black sea bass
traps in the Atlantic when the commercial quota is reached.
New Gulf reef fish rules decrease the commercial and
recreational minimum size limit for vermilion snapper from 11
to 10 inches total length, eliminate the April 22 through May
31 closed season for commercial harvest of vermilion snapper,
establish a zero bag limit for gag, red and black grouper for
captains and crew on for-hire vessels, and remove the requirement
for Class I and Class II commercial red snapper licenses.
Other rules approved by the FWC designate golden tilefish as
a "restricted species" in Florida, change the minimum size limit
of vermillion snapper imported into Florida from 11 to 10 inches
total length, and prohibit commercial fishermen from harvesting
or possessing the recreational bag limit of reef fish species on
commercial trips.

Gulf red snapper sport seasons set to reopen
- with changes
Recreational anglers will be able to catch and keep red snapper
in Gulf of Mexico waters soon, but the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission advises fishers there are some important
new rules they need to know about this year.
The FWC has made no changes to red snapper regulations in
Gulf state waters, but there are changes in federal waters. Florida
waters extend nine nautical miles offshore in the Gulf, and federal
waters extend beyond state waters.
The recreational red snapper fishing season in Florida waters in
the Gulf opens on April 15, as usual, and the season in Gulf federal
waters opens on April 21, which also is the same as in past years.
A new wrinkle is that a federal rule took effect recently to
reduce the harvest of red snapper temporarily while a permanent
plan to manage this overfished species is finalized.
The new federal rule says anglers in Gulf federal waters still
may keep the existing four-red-snapper daily bag limit and the
captain and crew of for-hire vessels may continue to retain this
limit for the first 11 days of the season, from April 21 through May
1. However, beginning on May 2, the daily recreational bag limit
for red snapper in Gulf federal waters will be reduced from four
fish to two per person, and the captain and crew of for-hire vessels
no longer will be allowed to retain the recreational bag limit.
In Gulf state waters, the daily recreational bag limit for red
snapper will remain unchanged at four fish per person, and the
captain and crew of for-hire vessels still can keep the recreational
bag limit during the entire open season.
The state and federal recreational Gulf red snapper fishing
seasons still will close as usual on Nov. 1 this year, and the
minimum size limit for recreational red snapper taken in both state

and federal Gulf waters is still 16 inches total length.
The FWC advises anglers that further changes to Gulf red
snapper regulations needed to help this fishery recover from years
of over-harvest are likely to be announced later this year.

FWC proposes changes to snook rules
Anglers may see new snook regulations soon. Changes to
snook bag and size limits and harvest seasons were proposed by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission last week.
This action is intended to provide additional protection for
Florida's valuable snook populations, which are considered to be
fairly healthy on the state's Atlantic and Gulf coasts. However, the
FWC believes a reduction in harvest is necessary to help achieve
the Commission's management goal for snook and sustain and
improve the fishery.
The latest FWC stock assessment for snook concluded the
management goal of a 40-percent spawning potential ratio
established for this fishery is not being met, and increasing
fishing effort and habitat loss are contributing to the declining
rate. Spawning potential ratio is the ratio of the egg production of
mature fish in a fished population to the egg production that would
exist if the population were not fished.
The FWC has proposed rule amendments to reduce the snook
daily recreational bag limit from two fish to one on the Atlantic
Coast, which would coincide with the one-fish limit now in place
on the Gulf Coast and in waters of Everglades National Park and
Monroe County. The rules also would change the current 27-34
inches total length snook slot limit to 28-32 inches in the Atlantic
and 28-33 inches in Gulf, Everglades and Monroe County waters.
No changes are proposed for the Dec. 15 Jan. 31 and June-
August snook closed harvest seasons in the Atlantic, however
the rules would add the first half of December and the month of
February to the Dec. 15 Jan. 31 and May-August snook closed
harvest seasons in the Gulf, Everglades and Monroe County.
Another rule proposal would allow snook anglers to carry more
than one cast net aboard a vessel. Right now, anglers who possess
a snook on a vessel are allowed to have only one secured and
stored cast net aboard the vessel.
The proposed snook rule changes were initiated by a workgroup
formed by the FWC to help evaluate management of the snook
fishery. A series of public workshops was recently held in Central
and South Florida to allow comment and input regarding the
proposals.
A final public hearing on the proposed snook rules will take
place during the FWC's June 13-14 meeting in Melbourne.

FWC adopts rules governing marine turtle
permits
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved marine turtle permitting rules last week, establishing
permitting requirements, the application process, special
permitting, and suspensions and revocations.
Commission members approved the four-part rule outlining
when permits are required and when permits cannot be granted.
The rule also establishes special conditions under which marine
turtle permits are granted for captive or research purposes. The rule
establishes training and reporting requirements for permit holders
and requirements for renewal.
Specific guidelines are being established for each level of
approval needed for requested activities based on the impact of the
studies on turtles, nests and hatchlings. New rules also provide for
suspending or revoking marine turtle permits if non-compliance
occurs.

FWC extends sponge diving to northern Gulf
The harvest of commercial sponges by diving will be legal in
parts of Northwest Florida marine waters beginning July 1. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission approved
a rule last week to extend the area where harvest of commercial
sponges is allowed by diving from west of 84 degrees west
longitude, near Cabell Point on the eastern border of Jefferson
County, to Cape San Bias.
The rule also specifies that all commercial sponges taken by
divers must be cut rather than pulled from the sea bottom.
The commercial harvest of sponges in Florida is a historical fishery
that is principally concentrated along the central Gulf of Mexico
near the traditional sponge docks in Tarpon Springs and in the
Florida Keys. This fishery is the source of natural sponges used
for a variety of household cleaning purposes and also supports a
curio trade.
Of the many species of sponges that occur in Florida, only a
few are sought after by the fishery and regulated. These species are
called "commercial sponges" and include the sheepswool, grass,
yellow, glove, finger, wire, reef and velvet sponges.
Commercial sponges can now be legally harvested by diving
in all state waters north of the southernmost point of Egmont
Key, northward and westward to the 84 degrees west longitude
line. They also may be harvested by diving in all state waters
beyond three nautical miles from the shoreline south of Egmont
Key to the Monroe and Collier county line.
Commercial fishers requested that state waters in the northern
Gulf also be open to sponge harvest, and the FWC believes this
fishery will be limited and will have negligible impacts to sponge
abundance.
Current regulations specify that persons wishing to land
sponges in commercial quantities must possess a valid Saltwater
Products License and a valid sponge endorsement.
Legally harvestable commercial sponges must also be at least
five. inches in diameter, and there are areas specified where sponges
may and may not be taken by diving. A daily recreational bag
limit of 10 commercial sponges per day also applies, and sponging
in Biscayne National Park is prohibited.

FWC consolidates rules for nonnative species;
Additional nonnative species now prohibited
Florida's normnnative species regulations are now more user-
friendly, thanks to a bit of rule-housekeeping approved by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission last
week. The new rules consolidate regulations on nonnative species
into one chapter and expand regulations beyond freshwater aquatic
life and wildlife to include marine life.
"The overriding purpose of the change is to get all normnnative
species regulations into one rule and incorporate nonnative marine
life into current regulations," said Scott Hardin, section leader
for nonnative species with the FWC. "It prohibits the release of
nonnative marine life without a permit and is by far the broadest
statement FWC has made with regard to normnnative species."


Current regulations already prohibit the release of normative
freshwater aquatic life and wildlife. The new rule outlines
requirements to possess conditional and prohibited normative
species and names additional nonnatives to these lists. The FWC
does not issue permits for personal possession of conditional or
prohibited species because of the significant potential to damage
native flora and fauna. Only researchers, exhibitors and those with
stringent biosecurity can secure a permit for prohibited nonnative
species.


Most notable are changes in regulations for owners of red-eared
slider turtles. Current owners of red-eared sliders may keep these
turtles without a permit but may not be in possession of a red-eared
slider less than four inches long after July 1, 2008. Albino and other
unusual color varieties, unique and unlikely to be wantonly discarded,
are exempt. The red-eared slider is the little green turtle sold by the
hundreds of millions in dime stores and pet shops. Released into the
wild, they interbreed with a native turtle species.
Another change prohibits future fish farms from fee-fishing
and outdoor culture of barramundi, a large predatory fish from
Australia. Existing facilities culturing barramundi may continue to
raise this species in outdoor ponds. FWC staff will conduct a risk
assessment to determine security measures for the group of fishes
known as Nile perches, including barramundi.
"We propose to assess the practice of fee-fishing," Hardin said.
"In general, barramundi is such a popular sport fish that it may
lead to temptation to stock them in the state's waters."
New rules also add nutria to the list of conditional species,
prohibiting their possession and distribution without a permit.
"These large, imported rodents have caused significant
damage to marsh vegetation in neighboring states," Hardin
said. "We're anxious to make sure Florida doesn't sustain that
kind of damage."
Giant African pouched rats including the Gambian pouched
rat also made the list of prohibited species.

FWC wraps up meeting in Tallahassee
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
approved a set of rules Wednesday to clarify and firm up permit
regulations for activities involving sea turtles. Such activities
include nesting surveys, nest relocation, educational turtle walks,
captive facilities, research and rehabilitation.
Also during Wednesday's session, commissioners adopted
new rules concerning importation, possession and sale of
normative fish, wildlife and plants. New rules also address
possession, exhibition and caging for venomous reptiles. In
addition, commissioners adopted a resolution to endorse a
voluntary set of standards for caging and husbandry of captive
reptiles.
In addition, commissioners approved staff recommendations
to start the imperiled species reclassification process for the
peregrine falcon and another bird called the smooth-billed ani.
On Thursday, the FWC adopted rule changes for various
reef fish species that take effect July 1. These rule changes are
intended to make reef fish regulations in state waters consistent
with recently approved regulations in federal waters.
In Atlantic Ocean waters, the new rules allow recreational
fishers to keep one golden tilefish and one snowy grouper
within the five-fish daily aggregate grouper bag limit. The daily
recreational bag limit for Atlantic red porgy will jump from one
fish to three fish per person, and the recreational minimum size
limit for Atlantic vermilion snapper will rise from 11 to 12 inches
total length. The rules also set commercial trip limits in the
Atlantic that are the same as trip limits in federal waters.
New rules for Atlantic black sea bass include increasing the
recreational minimum size limit from 10 inches total length to
11 inches total length in 2007, and then to 12 inches total length
in 2008, and establishing a June 1 May 31 harvest season. The
rules also require a minimum 2-inch mesh for the back panel
of black sea bass traps in the Atlantic, and require rermioval of
black sea bass traps in the Atlantic when the commercial quota is
reached.
New reef fish rules in Gulf of Mexico waters decrease the
commercial and recreational minimum size limit for vermilion
snapper from 11 to 10 inches total length, eliminate the April
22 through May 31 closed season, for commercial harvest of
vermilion snapper, establish a zero bag limit for gag, red and
black grouper for captains and crew on for-hire vessels, and
remove the requirement for Class I and Class II commercial red
snapper licenses.
Other new reef fish rules approved by the FWC designate.
golden tilefish as a "restricted species" in Florida, change the
minimum size limit of vermillion snapper imported into Florida
from 11 to 10 inches total length, and prohibit commercial
fishermen from harvesting or possessing the recreational bag
limit of reef fish species on commercial trips.
The FWC also passed a rule to extend the area where
harvest of commercial sponges by diving in Gulf waters is legal
westward to Cape San Bias and require that all sponges harvested
by diving be cut rather than removed with a hook. This rule
takes effect July 1.
In other marine fisheries action, Commissioners proposed.rule
amendments for snook that would reduce the daily recreational
bag limit from two fish to one on the Atlantic coast and change
the current 27-34 inches total length snook slot limit to 28-32
inches in Atlantic waters and 28-33 inches in Gulf, Everglades
National Park and Monroe County waters. The proposed rule also
adds the first half of December and all of February to the closed
harvest season in the Gulf, Everglades and Monroe County, and
would allow snook anglers to carry more than one cast net aboard
a vessel. A final public hearing on these proposals will be held in
June.
Commissioners also heard reports on reauthorization of the
Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act
and federal Gulf red snapper management, and received an update
on development of a vision document for the future of saltwater
fishing in Florida. They also considered several federal fisheries-
management issues and expressed opposition to a proposed federal
exempted fishing permit that would allow longline fishing for
swordfish in an area of east Florida that is now closed.
The complete agenda and background materials are available at
MyFWC.com/commission/2007/Apr07/.
The next FWC meeting will be in Melbourne June 13-14.

Lafayette Passage Paddling Trail opened
Saturday in Tallahassee
A new natural experience is opening up just minutes from
downtown Tallahassee. Among large cypress trees, lily pads
and tea-colored water, residents and visitors will be able to take
an afternoon canoe or kayak trip along the Lafayette Passage
Paddling Trail.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
and the City of Tallahassee Parks and Recreation Department
celebrated the opening and dedication of the trail at Lake Lafayette
Heritage Trail Park Saturday.
A trail-dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony will usher in


the day's events. Families and children can enjoy hiking, tree-
identification tours, birding, hands-on nature exhibits, games,
specimen studies, kayak tours and much more.
"This is an exciting new opportunity for Tallahasseeans," said
Ken Haddad, FWC executive director. "People don't have to travel
far to be one with nature."
Lake Lafayette is a remnant of a Pleistocene river delta, the
period spanning from 1.8 million to 10,000 years ago. Surrounding
the area are hiking and biking trails offering more opportunities to
view many species of rare and endangered birds such as the wood
stork, plus alligators and other wildlife..

The Florida Peanut Producers Association is pleased to
announce the opening of the 2007 Scholarship Award Program,
effective April 1.
Two $1,200 scholarships will be awarded to deserving high
school seniors and/or college students. The winners must be
the son or daughter of an actively producing peanut grower,
not necessarily a member of the FPPA. It is the intent of
the Scholarship Award committee, however, that the award
recipients attend a Florida junior college or four-year university.
Each winner will receive $600 when the scholarship winners
are announced. The remaining $600 will be awarded after the
completion of one semester and documentation of passing


grades is submitted to the FPPA Office.
"The Florida Peanut Producers Association is committed to
helping ftirther the education of young people in Florida and the
scholarship program is evidence of our commitment," said Ken
Barton, executive director of the FPPA.
"The FPPA welcomes all applicants. The final selection will
be made by the committee and all applicants will be notified by
mail, as will the scholarship winners," said Barton.
For an application contact the FPPA Office at 2741 Penn.
Ave., Suite 1, Marianna, FL 32448 or call (850) 526-2590.
FPPA Scholarship applications must be postmarked no later
than July 1, 2007..


ASSEMBLY OF FINE ARTISTS NEWS


The Artists and Benefactor's luncheon was held last
month at Suwannee Belle Landing, Old Town. Thanks to
George Keanes, owner of Suwannee Belle Landing on the
Suwannee River, Dixie County side of the Joe Anderson Bridge
on Highway 19.
Artists started arriving and leaving at 10 a.m. affected by the
brisk cold wind. This fact again confirms the dire need for an
art center or art gallery in the Tri-county area where, at least, art
can be exhibited and offered for sale without the fear of artists'
work being blown away or damaged.
Ralph Tyre was a guest speaker from Pure Water Wilderness.
Thank you, Ralph, for explaining to us that the major 'purpose
for your organization within Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy counties
is to increase tourism to the Tri-County area.
Increasing tourism is one of the Assembly of Fine Artists
mission statements from its beginning. We agree that "sparkling
springs and pristine rivers and an enchanting gulf should be
shared and promoted and appreciated."
Jim Morris from Lake City Community College was the
other guest speaker. He explained who are artists and live
within Baker, Dixie, Gilchrist, Union, and Columbia counties,
that they are invited to enter "Call for Art." This program is also
referred to as a "Selection Show Invitation" for a show to be
held at Lake City Community College Library, May 15 through
June 15. This is part of a selection process for the college to
purchase art by local artists living within these counties. He
told entrants that two-dimensional art should be no larger than
36"x36" and weight should not exceed twenty-five pounds for
both two- and three-dimensional artwork. Art should be framed
when appropriate and ready for hanging.
Each artist is invited to submit up to two pieces, with

Red Devils score nine runs in last two innings to win _& ---a_


BY NEAL FISHER
SIoRuTS W\ITCVRl

On the heels ofJiwan James' perfect game and the Red Devils
10-0 throttling of the Fort White Indians, Williston continued to
prepare for the post-season with another victory the next day.
However, this 10-7 victory over Lafayette failed to be a
dominant one, nor one that the outcome was determined from the
beginning.
Trailing 4-1 entering the sixth inning, the Red Devils pasted
the Hornets for seven tallies in the frame and another three runs in
their final at-bat.
"This game was our third game in three days," coach Jim
Smith said. "Two of them were district games we needed to win.
So the guys were tired. Keen (Lafayette's pitcher) did a good job,
particularly in mixing his pitches.
"But we were able to get out bottom batters on in the sixth and
when we do that we score runs. It gets us to the top of the lineup.
Up until that point out mental approach just wasn't were it should
have been."
It began with Clark Gilley's infield single and was contributed
to with three errors and a hit batsman as Williston turned a pitching
gem by the Hornets' Coby Keen into a thee-run lead with only one
inning left in the game.
An error by the Hornets' second baseman and a walk to Todd
Brown loaded the bases.
Danny Etheridge took one on the hip to bring in the first run.
Trip Fugate then delivered the big blow, a two-run single. It tied
the game at 4-4. A sacrifice fly, the two other errors in the inning
brought gave the Red Devils a three-run lead.
When the dust cleared Williston had pushed seven runs across
home plate on only four hits. Suddenly the game had a different
texture, sense and culture to it as it had obtained a new urgency
and the strategy from both teams had changed.


Despite the game's sudden change, the Buccaneers put a scar
into the Red Devils' newly earned lead in their half of the inning
D.J. Bowers continued to pitch just good enough to keep Willist
in the lead.
He gave up singles to Sergio Perez and Jamal Reid after retir
the first Lafayette batter. Chase Walker's triple that followed the
singles threw the scare into Williston as it hit the left field wall.
brought them within a run of the lead.
Another single by Kurt Skelley furthered the scare, but Bow
came up big at just the right moment as he retired the next t
batters with a weak liner to his second baseman and then a groin
out.
"Bowers did what he was supposed to," Smith said. "He thi
93 pitches and 60 of them were strikes. He gave us a start that w
deep into the game. If the batters were getting lead-off walks, t
would have been one thing, but they were just hitting the first pil
He didn't give up a walk and the defense had no errors."
Williston scored two more runs for the final 10-7 score in the
half of the seventh inning without a hit. Once again, in order, a 1
batter, a walk and an error put the runners on base and moved th
around the diamond.
The Hornets took a 4-1 lead after the first five innings with n
in the first and third stanzas and then two tallies in the next fram
Three singles and sacrifice bunt brought home the first run in thi
first inning.
A double and a triple made it a 2-1 game in the third inning.
Two consecutive single to lead of the fifth frame an error and
squeeze bunt made it a 4-1 game before the Red Devils bats can
alive.
The Red devils took a 1-0 lead in their half of the opening
inning.
Williston's record now stands at 14-5 as they close out their
regular season with a game against North Marion on the road
tonight..


Indians break open close game with five run outburst


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER

When seeing the final score of 12-2 in Chiefland's victory over
Branford April 9, it seems as if the Indians dominated the game in
every aspect of the sport.
However, this was not the case in this week's game. Or at
least for the first four innings the contest was a close one before it
moved into its later innings.
But it was the performance of Chiefland's junior starting pitcher
Ory Pitts that advanced the victory after the Indians' seven-run,
fifth-inning explosion, as he raised his season record to 6-2. His
final total was a scattering of six hits while he threw another
complete game.
Before the explosion, Branford's J.D. Strickland and Patrick
Van Asche matched Pitts' deed and endeavors tit-for-tat as he threw
an equally strategic and big pitch game until the Indians busted
through with the seven runs spot in the fifth frame.
Chiefland's Joey Harris' home run over the right field fence
gave the Indians a 2-0 lead in the first inning. It was his third long
ball of the season.
But proof of this particular game's unusual feel was furthered
by the fact that the seven runs the Indians scored came across
home plate after Van Asche induced the first two batters that hit in
two outs in the fifth inning.

Being a three-sport star whose accomplishments are often in the
local media, Jiwan James is well known, but on April 13 he gave
himself the kind of farewell present a perfect game that will
make his name a part of history.
The victim was Fort White and they left probably wishing the
Red Devils stuck to their original plan. James was scheduled to go
only three runs, but after facing nine batters he was so dominant he
had thrown only 31 pitches and only one Indian batter had hit the
ball out of the infield.
Coach Jim Smith decided to let the powerful senior continue.
Smith was rewarded with James getting even better and stronger
as the pitcher retired the side this time throwing the ball only
seven times. From there the chase for perfection was on and in the
forefront.
"James has always been very efficient, but he was at his most
efficient Friday night," Smith said. "He was never behind and once
he got into his groove, he just simply over-matched the Indians.
But when he is on, that is normal. He is definitely getting back to
pitching that way again and we need it for the post-season."


Miki Colabelli got on base with an infield single to the righ
shortstop. Daniel Galpin was hit by a pitch. Isaac Hardee's sir
to right broke what was a 2-2 tie. The game became a 5-2 con
when Brian Hassel followed with a single back through the b
Pitts helped his own cause later in the inning with a two-run sir
over the third baseman's glove.
Consecutive base hits by multiple Indian batters in the sixthE
seventh innings brought home two and three runs in each stanza
respectively to round out the scoring.
After the Indians jumped out to the 2-0 lead, Branford roarec
back to tie the game in the bottom of the first stanza. An error a]
walk led off the inning before Dustin Cannon's single pushed th
tying run across the plate.
Pitts then found himself facing two runners in scoring positic
with only one out in the bottom of the next frame before he
worked his way out of the inning. He walked two batters during
the game and both were in the second inning.
Strickland started for the Buccaneers before giving way to
Asche when the fourth inning started.
With the victory, the Indians upped their record to 15-4.
Harris was the big man at the plate with a 3-for-4 day. It
included a home run and a double.
The Indians finished their season with an away game at
Trenton Friday before heading into the district tournament
Monday..


The Red Devils' offense made sure James would be comfort
on the mound from the get-go. They threw up one run on the bo
in the opening inning and then put game away with four more
tallies in the next stanza.
The Red Devils' offense got on the scoreboard when Danny
Etheridge scored. He got on base when he was hit-by-a-pitch wi
two outs. He then stole second and third base. Trip Fugate smac
a single back through the middle to make the score 1-0.
In the next inning, D.J. Bowers and Damon Ming led off
with walks. Tyree Boyer was hit by a pitch and it loaded the
bases. Consecutive singles off the bats of Clark Gilley and Jame
followed. Etheridge finished the scoring in the inning with anotl
single two batters later to make it a 4-0 game.
The Red Devils scored solo runs in the third and fifth innings
and ended the game with a three spot in the final stanza.
But it was James' whose performance superceded anything tl
offense did. When he stepped of the mound he had amassed the
kind of stats that backed up Smith's comments about Fort White
just simply being overwhelmed on this particular night.
James threw 51 pitches to 15 batters. Forty-two of the 51
pitches were strikes. Only one ball was hit out of the infield. Thi
first seven outs were termed "routine" by Smith and only two ot
balls that were hit by Fort White required the Red Devils' field
move more than four steps.
And of course, he had eight strikeouts to go with the other
statistics.
"We got a huge boost from the bottom of the line up," Sn

Hoops For Hearts is successful again

BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER


"Besides

the obvious

opportunity

to raise

money,

which will

eventually be

used to save

lives, it was a

great learning

opportunity."


It doesn't quite have the immediate brunt force of hearing the words "you're fired" like the audience
hears every week on The Apprentice, but Bronson High School's "Hoops for Hearts" has the same
significance.
The Hoops for Hearts program is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. It has been a
staple of Bronson High School's academic year for about 10 years now, but this year it was specifically
executed by the students in Greg Hamilton's leadership class.
Like the apprentice, the class was divided into two project teams, headed by an assigned project
manager. The teams raised money by creating a business and staging events within the context of
developing a company like the participants on The Apprentice do.
"The students were real excited to do it," Hamilton said. "Besides the obvious opportunity to raise
money, which will eventually be used to save lives, it was a great learning opportunity. It really tested
some of their limits. They had to do things like public speaking and brainstorming."
The contest lasted two weeks between March 19 and March 30 and raised approximately $1,050 for
the association. The hoops part of the contest is included because the winning team gets the honor of
lacing up the sneakers for a basketball game during class. That occurred two Fridays ago.
Among the other skills needed during the contest were executing the projects within the context of
creating a business while meeting certain criteria, submitting the plans and getting approval from both
the school's principal and vice-principal, raising a band of volunteers, convincing the county authorities
to approve their plans and filling out the appropriate paperwork for the officials to listen to them.
The projects raised money from the traditional sources like car washes and dances to the more
unorthodox ideas of using basketball and other sports.
The contest also gave the students a first-hand experience in learning and refining fundraising
techniques and delegating assignments in a productive manner.
The project manager for the winning team was Barbara Clemmons and the lead apprentice was
Rebecca Rogers.
"It was successful and something special, because it allowed them to test and come up with creative
ideas," Hamilton said. "They had to go from the brainstorming stage to actually implementing it. They
had to do things like speak at lunch in front of the student body in order to sell the program."
Plans for the project began in Decembersm


said. "They got on base seven times in nine at bats. In every game
we have won this year, we have had that kind of production from the
bottom of the order.
"As far as James it showed the other pitches what we have been
saying all along. If they throw strikes and don't walk anybody,
the odds of us winning are very good. It helped our defense too,
because they don't have as much pressure."
The senior pitcher's ability to spot his fastball in order to get
ahead was the key to his dominance. His fastball ran in and out
as well as up and down. It set up his split finger pitch when it
was time to strikeout batters. His other pitches, the curve and
breaking balls were set up by the fastball as well.
On the other side, things got away from the Indians quickly
because their pitcher had trouble throwing strikes.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


Page 16 THURSDAY, APRIL 19, 2007


BY NEAL FISHER
SPORTS WRITER

Everyone had a smile and a full stomach as the city of
Chiefland welcomed the Chiefland's Future Farmers of America
and Chiefland Farm Supply's Bull Bash 2007 the weekend of
April 13 and 14.
The open land at the intersection of state Route 345 and state
Route 347 with the tantalizing smell of sweetly browned meat
and poultry, as it has done since the inception of Bull Bash,
played host to the spring ritual.
The rodeo is part of the Southern States Bull Riding
Association. Chiefland, the association and the tract of land
have had the relationship for over a decade.
The audience came from far and wide to the festivities to see
and cheer the 25 chap-clad warriors put on a show of courage
and a lesson in toughness as they took turns eating the dirt
inside the square ring between successful rides.
The clicking and whirling of f-stops and shutters were
common noises as the cowboys faced off in three different
rounds. Two judges award points to each cowboy as well as the
bull with each ride. Points range from one to 25 for both the
cowboy and bull.
The points are based on the control the cowboy rides with
and his spurring action. The judges' two scores are added
together for a maximum of 100 points.
The association calls its events the longest eight seconds in
sports. The cowboys showed just how long that time period can
seem as it took eight riders before one was able to stay on the
bull for more than eight seconds.
The eight seconds is important, because only those rides
which last that long are considered qualifiers for the next round.


ABOVE: Bronson residents Dudley and Heather
Hamby display their handmade didgeridoos.
Although even from a close inspection they look
like wood. Dudley Hamby actually makes the
Australian instruments from PVC pipe.

LEFT: Seven-year-old Travis Coleman tests his
strength at Saturday's AARP festival. His prize
was a large, inflatable hammer.


At the end of the season,
like most sports that run on
a point system, each event
is parlayed into a total that
qualifies a certain amount of
the cowboys for the finals.
In between, the rides the
master of ceremonies and
the clown interacted with the
audience cracking jokes about
them as well as each other and
throwing out tidbits about the
cowboys and the series.
Before the show began,
the association also presented
its patriotic side as it opened
the ceremonies with a stirring
tribute to the American flag
while it was displayed from
the saddle of a horse rider
with the Star Spangled Banner
played in the background.
The night was about
exciting the fans' and it was
apparent as it was spurred on
by each cowboy's long-term
plan to become eligible for the
finals at the end of the season.
With that in mind, the rodeo
presented to the fans an eclectic
mixture of cowboys who came
from as far away as the western
portion of the Panhandle and
as far south as the Keys. And
there were even a few from out
of state.
Spread out over several
tables were collectors' items
and rodeo paraphernalia,
which included pictures,
autographs, cowboy hats and
association merchandise.
With such an excellent
variety of parts making the
sum very entertaining, the
food also played a prominent
role as it circled through the
air. It was also an assorted
ensemble of cuisine as there
was the traditional meat of
burgers and hot dogs as well
as some finer dishes laced with
the customary rodeo sides..
