FEDS and local


authorities arrest


three in drug sting

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Federal agents and the Levy County Drug Task Force raided
a motorcycle gang at 13150 SE 103 Lane of Rainbow Lakes
Estates near Dunnellon late Monday evening on July 23.
- The joint effort uncovered $36,000 worth of illegal weapons,
ammunition and marijuana plants at their club headquarters.
The members arrested in the raid are Gary Taber, 54; his
wife, Debi Taber, 53; and a fugitive from Massachusetts,
Patrick Houghton Jr., 33.
The Tabers were charged with maintaining a drug dwelling,
possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia,
said a spokesperson for the Levy County Sheriff's Dept.
Houghton was charged with unlawful possession of
a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawful
possession of a high-capacity feeding device (the magazine for
the firearm), possession of marijuana, littering and disorderly
conduct. Major Mike Johnson with the Sheriff's Office said
that Houghton is being held now in Levy County until he is
extradited back to Massachusetts.
"If he fights extradition he will have to get a governor's
warrant. Sometimes they do it just to delay going back," said
sheriff's Lt. Evan Sullivan.
Federal agents from Gainesville and Tallahassee and Boston
agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms served a
search warrant late last Monday when they found the operation.
Federal officers received confirmation that a man living
at the Tabers' home resembled the description of a fugitive
who fled from a federal courthouse in Massachusetts after
being sentenced to 10 years in prison. The tip, Johnson said,
came from an informant in Massachusetts, which revealed the
location. of the hideout where Houghton sought refuge and
helped set up the operation.
According to Johnson, the Taber home was also headquarters
for the Sidewinders Motorcycle Club.
Photos found on the Tabers' computer revealed that the
club is connected to.the Hell's Angels gangs. "I don't.know
'if there are any more of these clubs down here, but Florida is
sometimes referred to as the outlaw biker state," said Johnson
about the,,stats,.sPf,el!'s. Angels' clubs in Florida.
The digital photos also showed the placementiof:the guns
and ammunition, which had been hidden inside a wall and
under tables, as well as an indoor lighting system used for
growing the marijuana.
Johnson said the system had grow lights and a built-in
fertilizer system to feed the plants.

Beating the Odds

By STEVE JARBOE
STAFF WRITER


Teri Heberling has .had more than her fair share of tough
luck in her 16 years. However, the plucky teenager has let
nothing stop her neither her two bouts with cancer, nor a
near-fatal car crash.
When Teri was in third grade, she was diagnosed with
brain cancer. After treatment, the cancer went into remission.
That remission was not to last. During her second bout
with the dread disease, she was awarded a trip through the
Make-A-Wish Foundation, the non-profit group that grants
wishes to terminally ill children. Teri's fulfilled wish was a
trip to Hawaii.
And then a miracle Teri went into full remission,
surviving her cancer yet again.
Then this past April Teri was driving her vehicle when
her car flipped over, crashing into a tree on the side of the STEVE JARBO
road. The tree lodged into her body. Teri sustained multiple Tei Heberling
injuries. In the hospital, she underwent several surgeries.
More are planned. She was told she would never walk again.
And yet once again this incredible, beautiful teenager has beaten the odds. Teri is up and
walking without assistance. She has lately been busy completing school projects and catching
up her missed assignments and preparing for school in the fall.
Teri and her mother, Brenda, both agree. She must have a guardian angel watching over
her in her young and unique life..

OPINION/EDITORIAL


LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


EmumouW w


:oir


Dear Editor,
Below is a letter I have written concerning a Levy County Comprehensive Plan Amendment
seeking an increase in density on an 695 ac. agricultural parcel.
My concerns are stated in the letter and my motivation is the desire to help Levy County grow in a
responsible and respectfid manner; something I believe we all want.
Fellow Levy County Residents
The Honorable Levy County Commissioners
Re: Proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment to increase the density on a 695 ac. Agricultural /
Rural parcel.
Dear Commissioners and fellow Levy County Residents,
I am a Levy County resident and property owner. I own a small tree farm near the 695 acres in
question. In addition, I operate a small construction and renovation business.
I am writing to express my disagreement with the Commissions recent vote to seek State of
Florida approval to amend the Levy County Comprehensive Plan, Future Land Use Map, allowing
a dramatic increase in residential density on 695 acres of Agricultural/Rural Residential land located
in the Manatee Springs Recharge Basin. If this action is approved by the State the density will be
increased to one home per three acres from the one in ten acres currently, allowed, creating the
possibility of 231 homes on a site where no more than 69 are allowed today.
Recently I attended the Levy County Planning Commission meeting that heard the proposed
amendment. I was very impressed by the thorough discussion of the staff Planners report and the
respectful testimony by the property owner's, their representatives and citizens for and against the
petition. In the end, the Planning Board voted unanimously to not recommend the amendment be
transmitted to the Department of Community Affairs.
Yet after receiving the Planning Board recommendation and despite strong public opposition to
the proposed amendment the Board of County Commissioners voted in favor of the petition. I do not
question the right of the County Commissioners to vote against the recommendation of their Planning
Board or the majority of citizens present, however, it does beg the question; did the Commissioners
have all the necessary information to base their decision on? I believe they did not.
Here is what the Future Land Use Map designationfor this property and area tells us:
The Agriculture/Rural Residential Future Land Use Map designation states: This category
provided for areas predominantly used for agriculture, accessory and supportive,uses to the
agricultural industry, resource based and/or non-spectator based recreational uses, conservation uses
and very low density development. The maximum residential density is one (1) dwelling unit per ten
(10) acres, except as otherwise provided by Policy 3.3. The minimum parcel size in ten (10) acres, or
parcel of record as of December 31, 1989.
I believe this petition has failed to demonstrate how this proposed increase in septic systems will
protect the Manatee Springs Basin because it cannot.
What the Levy Comp Plan has to say:
Policy 3.4 of the Levy County Comprehensive Plan Conservation Element states that: The Soil
Survey ofLevy County will be used to identify soil suitability and limitations to support land use'
decisions. On-site soil characteristics and constraints will be one of the determining factors in land
use changes that involve the increase of density and intensity.
Here is what the soils map indicates about the subject property:
"According to the Soil Survey of Levy County, the soil types are generally fair for wildlife, fair
for the growing of crops and good for pasture. According to the Soil Survey, Jonesville and Seaboard
soils have severe limitations on-site for septic tank absorption fields, and Otela soils have moderate
limitations".
Even if a developer can overcome the soil limitations it doesn't guarantee there won't be
contamination from septic systems. Ground water contamination via septic.tanks is a nation-wide
problem but is more prevalent in wetland /high-water table & coastal areas. Studies demonstrate
rapid movement of viruses and other contamination from septic tanks into nearby waters. Properly
functioning septic systems remove very little nutrients and effluent can rapidly migrate to surface and
or ground waters. Sewage discharge from septic tanks is a source of nutrients and human pathogens to
ground and surface waters. Is it wise to take this chance; in of all places, the Manatee Springs basin?
What about growth, won't it help the tax base?
No, there is now a large body of evidence, much of it from other Florida Counties that indicate that
this type of growth, in rural areas, outside municipal service boundaries does not help the tax base
because of the short and long term costs of delivering the required services. There is no shortage of
smartcows in the County but I bet not one of themhasever calledd 911 for'an EMT or the Sheriff or
rides the school bus. We are just beginning to learn in Florida what the long term costs of the wrong
types of growth, in the wrong areas are, in terms of mroner',l6sstjbb'9; and dairiige to the environment
and diminished quality of life. i don't want Levy County to learn that lesson here at home.
On page 1 lof thereport prepared by the Levy County Planning Department, in bold type it states:
"An incremental increase in land use density radiating outward from a municipal service
district is the ideal planning model for the efficient provision of services."
There are places throughout Levy County where this type of growth should and can occur. Higher
density growth in our rural areas only hurts the cities and towns that could benefit from reasonable
growth. Due to the lack of municipal services, this petition should have been rejected.
In 2003 when the elite group of Florida developers, bankers and executives known as the Council'
of 100, with direct access to Governor Bush set down behind closed doors to find a way to take North
Florida's water for South Florida's growth. They were met with very strong opposition from North
Florida and at least temporarily backed down. If we gut the density provisions of our Comp Plan we
not only give them the water they want but the land too.
I believe this proposed amendment is bad for Levy County, a County that depends upon our
natural resources. If you grow trees, crops, clams, mine Limerock, ranch or work in any of the other
natural resource based professions or are fortunate to be retired here, this comp plan amendment
could be the beginning of changes that could negatively affect the way you live and work.
Finally, on a personal note, I have only lived in Levy County for going on 24 years, so I have no
claim to a long history here, as many families I respect have. But I am the product of farming and
immigrant family, not unlike many of my neighbors, and I have claimed Levy County as my, one and
only home, built a small business, raised children, volunteered my time and reinvested my earnings
here. And that brings me to my closing point; I believe our Commissioners are doing their best for
Levy County and they along with their appointed officials deserve our respect and gratitude for their
service. However, that doesn't guarantee they will always be correct in their decisions.
This recent decision by the Commission was an error that can be corrected. I respectfully ask
the Commissioners to reconsider their vote. And I ask my fellow citizens to contact their County
Commissioners and have a frank and honest talk about the future of Levy County with them.

Very Respectfully,
Greg Lang, Cedar Key

SHERIFF
HNNY SMITH


Hello, and welcome to Your Sheriff's Comer. Summer is definitely in full-swing and with its
presence, many people are taking advantage of the great outdoors all across the country. There are
many different ways people engage themselves outdoors; one popular way is by hopping on a revved-
up motorcycle with the anticipation of "getting away from it all" and the promise of a fresh wind
blowing on your skin. Whether you are driving just down the street to a neighbor's house for dinner
or embarking on a cross-country adventure, which will take you to sights you have never seen before,
motorcycle transportation must be approached with wisdom and safety-consciousness.
It isn't hard to grasp the popularity of motorcycle transportation. With its low initial cost and
high fuel efficiency, this pleasure vehicle is a must-have for many people. But with that pleasure,
there is also a certain amount of risk of which you must be aware. Motorcycle fatalities represent
approximately 5% of all highway fatalities each year. That sounds pretty low-risk, right? Well, when,
you realize that motorcycles represent just 2% of all registered vehicles in the United States, you
might think differently.
One of the main reasons motorcyclists are killed in crashes is because the motorcycle itself
provides virtually no protection in a crash. For example, approximately 80% of reported motorcycle .,
crashes result in injury or death; while a comparable figure for automobiles is about 20%. The first
thing you need to do before you even crank up your motorcycle is to have proper equipment. What
follows is a list of the proper gear you will need:
The helmet is the most important piece of equipment you need. Make sure it fits snugly and is
comfortable. Look for the DOT (Department of Transportation) label on the helmet to show it :
meets federal standards. A helmet is useless if it isn't worn.
Wear a quality pair of goggles with safety lenses or a helmet equipped with a face shield.
Arms and legs should be adequately protected. Jackets with long sleeves should be worn and
pants should cover the entire leg. Leather materials are recommended. Pants should not be baggy,
or flared toward the bottom to prevent entanglement with the chain, kickstand or the foot pegs.
Durable gloves are recommended. Gloves should be made of non-slip material. Leather gloves ;,
are an excellent choice.
Wear bright colors to increase your visibility. Retro-reflective materials are a good choice,
especially if you drive at night.

Once you have geared up, these precautions need to be taken while on the road: '
Take a motorcycle-training course to learn to safely and skillfully operate a motorcycle.
Take extra caution at intersections. This is where the most motorcycle-vehicle collisions take
place.
Remain visible to other motorists. Don't ride in the driver's "blind spot."
Ride defensively.
Avoid driving in bad weather.
Never drink and ride. Alcohol slows reflexes and greatly limits your ability to safely operate a
motorcycle. Approximately 50% of all fatal motorcycle crashes involve alcohol.

I hope this article will help you as you embark on your next adventure! Be safe, have fun, and
enjoy the great outdoors... you never know what may be waiting for you just around the next bend..' -



Our endorsement for


Tuesday's election: Vote,:,

By LARRY SCHNELL

Residents living within the city limits of Chiefland head to the polls Tuesday. Six candidates are
running for three open seats. We choose not to endorse any of them not because there aren't fine ;
candidates here, but because we don't believe in endorsing candidates.
Newspapers have a long history of candidate endorsements, of telling readers who they should
vote for. The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Miami Herald and i
many others, large and small, influential and insignificant, liberal and conservative, tell their readers '
who to vote for at election time. As a small, weekly newspaper, we realize we are bucking a trend set;'
by giants of the news business with a long history supporting them. But we stand by what we believe;.
When newspapers endorse candidates, they step over the line of neutrality that has always been ;-
the hallmark of good journalism. True, endorsements are confined to the editorial-opinion page, but .,
endorsements nevertheless reflect the notion that the newspaper is trying to sway public opinion to ,,
influence who leads our cities, counties, states and our nation. It must baffle and anger readers to
think that on one page, a newspaper can promise them fairness in presenting the news and on another
be as biased as you can get in the most important public events of our communities and-our country
- elections. By the way, we do reserve the right to endorse political issues that appear on ballots as
referenda. *
Some scholars of newspapers argue that editorial endorsements do not change most voters' minds.:
Rather, they challenge voters to take a stand on a candidate. By taking a position on a candidate,
people are likely to go to the polls, the argument goes. That rationale does not justify newspapers'
violating their promise of fairness. That's like saying, "We know we're doing something wrong, but ;-
it won't make any difference." Further, at least some people will be influenced by an endorsement
because it is on the printed page and many people respect their newspapers. In some cases, a small
number of voters swayed by an editorial can swing an election. Some elections, particularly in small ,
communities, are won by very few votes. Presidential elections have been determined by very few
votes relative to the total number cast.
Endorsements jeopardize the credibility of reporters, who endeavor to cover the news fairly,
without bias. Their credibility with both sources and readers rests on their promise of fairness. Some'
politicians may find it hard to accept reporters' pledges of neutrality while their newspapers violate
the pledge. Readers would be wise to look askance at a reporter's pledge of neutrality when his or her*
employer does not honor the, promise.
We cannot put it more simply: attempting to influence the outcome of elections by publishing
political endorsements is a bad role for newspapers.
So here is our endorsement for this and all elections. Learn all you can about the candidates. In a
rural community such as ours, the candidates live and work among us. Read about them here. Read
about them in other news outlets. Talk to them. Ask them hard questions and don't accept evasive
answers. They are running for office to be your servants. You are paying their salaries. Get a feel
for their backgrounds, their integrity, their positions on topics of interest to you. Consider how their
election could affect you, your family, your community. Believe or disbelieve what they say based on'i
your knowledge of human nature. And most importantly, vote.
If you have not registered to vote, it's too late for this election but not too late for the 2008 General
Election. Better late than never. Also, you can register and find your precinct online. Go to http://

Bronson needs a policy for scrap metal
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER


Once in awhile people are able to find
common ground. This usually involves
a little trick known as diplomacy; or
( something that requires more, something

listening. Infinitely, we move more within
ourselves and the problem increases we
want what we want, when we want it.
A, J Now, it is time for resolution on a certain
issue in Bronson. If you've been reading our
paper over the last month, you might know
the issue I'm addressing. If not, then perk up
your ears more will be revealed.
So, ok, I will give a little background a recap of the last few
episodes if you will. A certain Bronson council member gave away
water meters without it being debated at the council meeting. So as


a result before the next meeting in July, the city attorney and town
manager, Jim Cornelius, wrote a letter categorizing the act as both
unethical and a violation of Sunshine Law. As of July 23 Cornelius
resigned as city attorney, and that's the gist of it so far.
But wait there's more...much, much more!
The issue was discussed at the July council meeting with the'
focus 6f the argument being that of Councilman Aaron Edmondson
asking Cornelius how the newspaper received his letter. In doing
this, Edmondson successfully took away what might have proved
to be a more worthy cause Why the letter was drafted in the first
place? Aren't they all on the same team anyway?
Mayor Beatrice Mongo raised an interesting point saying, "If
this was a problem it would have been nice if our lawyer and our
city manager said, 'Look, we can't do this,"' adding, "If we made a
mistake, let us know."
Cornelius claims the letter was a way to provide, "full and


complete disclosure to my clients. Not to mention honesty. I will
not ignore action I believe to be illegal and improper." The letter
served as the only way to stop the actions that he cited as violation
to the Sunshine Law, the people of Bronson and to his "Code of
Professional Responsibility."
Another letter written by Bronson citizen Berlon Weeks to i.'
council member Edmondson was faxed to the Journal the same day
Cornelius resigned. In the letter Weeks asked important questions
such as why the items were given away to just one person when an
offer of $500 was presented to the city.
Another important question was asked at the last council meeting
by Ryan Bell, who wondered if the town had a policy on the sale of
scrap metal. When he was told no by the council he replied that they
did nothing wrong, technically.
What is hard to believe is that with "a large community of people
that salvage scrap metal," as Weeks states in his letter, there is no
policy?
This is a major red flag Bronson needs a policy right away so
all parties involved can resolve their differences and have a good
night's rest.u

in the Army during World
War II. I am now serving
as a member of the Vision
Committee.

What do you think is the
number one issue facing
Chiefland today?
Growth. I'm for growth.
Getting the citizens and the
city to approve the growth
can be a problem. If my
mother and father could
wake up today, they would
not believe it.

What, if elected, would you
do to address this issue?
Go directly to the
citizens; invite them to come
to the meetings to discuss
whatever we may face.
Somebody has to get down
to the grassroots. If they
understood, they would be
for the betterment of the city.
I would explain exactly what
I think the city needs and :
then let the people decide if
they want it.

What should be the top
funding priorities for the
city of Chiefland ?
Upgrade the city streets,
sidewalks and the alleys.
Nobody seems to do
anything with the alleys
especially. There are lots of
alleys that need to be clean,
and I think we should also
work to clean up the whole
city.

What would you most
want Chiefland voters to
know about you?
I am a Christian, a Baptist
deacon at Mt. Pleasant
Baptist Church.
My family is very
important to me. My wife

What do you think is the
number one issue facing
Chiefland today?
The biggest potential
problem in Chiefland at this

growth rate of this city will
likely triple in a year and
there is no way to stop it.

What, if elected, would you
do to address this issue?
I would propose that the
city develop a strategic task
force'to focus on the growth
in Chiefland and come up
with a plan for the next 10
years. The focus should

,Law Enforcement, Fire and
Rescue, zoning and design
guidelines, concurrency
approaches to insure that
adequate infrastructure, and
other facilities, including
parks and schools, are
available to support new
development, development

Brief description of
previous government
experience:
I served the public in the
Law Enforcement field for
21 years. I have worked
for the Pinellas County
Sheriff's Office, State
of Florida Department of
Corrections, and I am
currently a Lieutenant over
the Special Operations
Division with the Levy
County Sheriff's Office.
I've dedicated my life to
serving the public.

What do you think is the
number one issue facing
Chiefland today?
Controlling growth and
supporting the infrastructure
of the city's public services
and financial responsibilities
to the citizens of Chiefland.

What, if elected, would you
do to address this issue?
The first thing that all the
citizens of Chiefland have to
understand is that I am only
1 person. There has to be a
majority of votes to control
what happens to the city.
I will work to spend tax
dollars wisely and study
issues that affect the city
to provide the best service
possible to the citizens and
help bring more businesses
to our community. This will
improve the tax base so our
citizens are not burdened
with tax increases which
would otherwise be required
for various services.

What should be the top
funding priorities for the
city of Chiefland?
Infrastructure, public
safety, and growth of the city.

What would you most
want Chiefland voters to
know about you?
That, if elected, I will
always put the interests of
the overall city first and that
I encourage input from the
citizens.
I am doing this to
represent the citizens so their
voice can be heard in our
community.

Brief description of
previous government
experience:
Commissioner, two years.
Levy County Soil and
Water Conservation District
board member, past.

What do you think is the
number one issue facing
Chiefland today?
The budget- being able
to give everybody what
they want without having
too much burden on the
taxpayers. The state of
Florida is mandating changes
in the way local governments
levy taxes in the near future.
They are taking control away
from the local government
and putting into their own
hands. The changes they are
making are still evolving. We
don't know what the changes
will be.

What, if elected, would you
do to address this issue?
Work closely with the
commissioners, the city
manager and city department
heads to try to get the most
out of the money and still
provide the department
heads with what they need to
keep a high-quality level of
service.

What should be the top
funding priorities for the
city of Chiefland?
1. I would love to see
us pursuing grants
that's free money.
2. Water and sewer fees.
3. Taxation.

What would you most want
Chiefland voters to know
about you?
I try to go into all
decision-making processes
with an open mind. I try to
make the best decisions for
the citizens of Chiefland.
My grandfather, my father
and myself all grew up in
Chiefland. Now I want to
see my children grow up
here and be given the same
opportunities I had. This is a
great place for kids to grow
up. It is a great place to raise
a family and I want to work
to see it stay that way.

What do you think is the
number one issue facing
Chiefland today?
I think helping to do
everything we can to get the

Also, the commission
needs to have some stability.
Commissioners should not

* What, if elected, would you

I will work to try and

Working to keep our
taxes low; living within our

of grants we may receive.

What would you most

Sun., July 29, 2007 8:30 p.m.
Hi ya'll, my little ones are outside in the fenced backyard, so I'll
try and get this done while they are playing instead of climbing on
me. They had chicken for their evening meal. They are spoiled rotten,
but I really do love them and yes, I know they love me too.
Oh where would I be without my little dogs? They really are a lot
of company for me. I would never part with them. Later, okay?
Monday morning. Good morning. I will finish this and take it to
the Journal.
I went with Janie to yard sales on Archer Road yesterday and
bought a few things I didn't need, but wanted. Oh well, I guess we all
buy a few things we don't need now and then.
My sister came yesterday to see me, but had to find me first. Yes,
she found me down at A&A Restaurant. They all have learned if I'm
not home they will find me at A&A, Dollar General or yard sales
with Janie. Yeah, this is the story of Miss Honey, but isn't it great to
be alive and well and able to live a good life at my age? Yes, the ripe
old age of 77 and still taking care of myself. God has been good to
me and he still is taking care of me:
Well I'm going to shut up, get up and take this to the Journal and
visit my friends at A&A and Dollar General, so until next week stay
sweet and God bless.
Miss Honey
P.S. No I do not have Alzheimer's and there is nothing wrong
with my mind (this has been confirmed by my doctor), even though
some folks are telling that I do:

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs., July 26, at the Levy Co. Quilt
Museum. It was another busy club day with nine coming from the
Williston Stitch and Stir FCF Club. They very often bring things
to us they don't need and today they have made many crafts they
need to sell or get rid of. We are always glad to help them as they
are a busy bunch of wonderful ladies and we did have a great day of
visiting and seeing everyone. N
Later in the day my brother and sister-in-law visited Camp
Curuth for the graduation of the hundred or so children who had
been to camp all week. As we work with this camp, this is the first
time I have been able to go down and enjoy seeing so many. We
will be going down Aug. 7 to let the children make pillows, and
even the counselors enjoy having a day of sewing. They bring
children from all over Florida. Today these came up from Pinellas
Co. and they just had a big group from Key West. It is a wonderful
camp and we are proud to be a part of it.
Greg and six boys were out Tues. and what a great day we had
and got so much done. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch today was two dishes of chicken and dressing, squash,
beans, potato salad, coleslaw, eggplant, all kind of desserts and so
much more. A total of 30 were present. .

Assembly of Fine Artists News

So far, the competition for Diana-look-a-like only has three
entrants, and we are waiting for their signatures because there
would be a lot of publicity involved and we want to be sure there.
would not be any conflict about the use of their image.
A reminder, this is the month of Diana's birth. She would have,
been 46 years old July 1.
Why Diana? She was a great example of an altruist woman of
this era. It also has something to do with the fact that my husband
who was born in England, became an American at an early age; "
joined the RCAF, was a Flying Officer and flew 65 missions as
a spitfire pilot over the English Channel during World War 11;
came home to talk about it; and twenty years later married me.
Incidentally although his mother was English, his dad was a
Blackfoot "Novi" and German.
We've not heard from any "are" or "would- be" designers of
garments that would be suitable for Diana's past activities. That's
wide open. Come on start designing; use a friend or yourself to .,'
model the garments. I'll be out of the area the last two weeks
of September lining up judges of these apparel designs. Who
knows, one or more of you may be entering a worldwide industry.
Keep reading your local newspapers. We've waived dues. Use
that money for current papers or send self addressed envelope to

Williston City

Council correction
According to Williston's town clerk, three items were
incorrect in last week's Williston City Council article.
In the paragraphs discussing the city manager's
contract, the clerk said that the council "motion i
at the council meeting was to resend the motion
to amend the city manager contract not to
renegotiate." The article stated that the motion to
renegotiate had failed, and that it would be'on the
agenda for the next meeting.
The clerk also stated that Bill Martin's request to
continue use of a temporary trailer was denied.
The Journal reported the motion as having passed.
The next meeting of the Williston Town Council
is August 7. The Journal had reported the meeting
would occur August 14.
The Journal apologizes for the errors.

as an athlete.
With Smith's assistance, Rowe delivered her child in that front yard. When her baby boy
arrived, he struggled for breath. Smith noticed the umbilical cord wrapped around the baby's
neck, making it difficult for the baby to breath. Smith pulled away the cord, made sure he
had good air passage and then cleared the baby's nose and mouth with his finger, so the baby
.could get as much air as possible. Smith then turned his attention to the mother, to ensure
her health and wellbeing as well.

Levy County Emergency Medical staff arrived on scene. Technician Shawn Holcomb
assessed the mother while Paramedic Dee Hinds took care of the baby. Both mother and
baby were loaded into the ambulance. Smith drove the ambulance to Shands, where both
mother and son were admitted to the pediatric ward.
Smith had just delivered his first baby as a Williston firefighter. He said of the experience,
"It was an honor to bring a baby into this world. Some people will never experience this
feeling. I guess I am just one of the lucky ones to have had this honor."
Smith was quick to thank fellow workers Holcomb and Hinds. He also thanked the
Williston Fire Department for the training that enabled him to deliver a healthy baby boy
* into the world.
The baby has been named Caron, according to neighbor Connie Ross, whose daughter
Arnetra Richardson found the mother in the front yard in labor. It was Ross who placed the
9-1-1 call..

Drink & Drive, You Lose.


Violators can lose their licenses, time from their jobs, and
lose money in high fines and court costs as well as possibly
face imprisonment for repeat offenses, assault and vehicular
homicide.
Americans consider impaired driving one of the nation's
most important social issues, ahead of healthcare, poverty/
hunger, racism and education. Nearly 97% of Americans
view drunk driving as a threat to the community. As a
result, the majority of Americans support increased use
of enforcement efforts like saturation patrols and sobriety
checkpoints to arrest violators. Furthermore, three-fourths of
Americans also endorse the use of stricter and more severe
penalties against impaired drivers.
Sergeant Brandon Roberts of the Inglis Police Department
reminds everyone:
Don't risk it. If you plan to drive, don't drink.
Choose a sober designated driver before going out.
Take a taxicab or ask a friend to drive you home.
Spend the night where the activity is being held.
e Report impaired drivers to law enforcement.

Scheduled checkpoint dates: August 18 & 25 from 10 p.m.
until 2 a.m. in the areas of State Road 55, County Road 40C,

A short

reminder
Dear residents of Levy and surrounding counties:
You may not be aware of the fact that Levy County Animal
Services and the Humane Society of Levy County, Inc. are growing
at a rather rapid rate. There is an overpopulation in our county of
homeless dogs and cats who need loving homes. Levy County
Animal Services has agreed to allow the Humane Society of Levy
County, Inc. to hold adoption events at the Levy County Animal
Services Shelter. This partnership provides the pets at the shelter the
opportunity to be adopted two Saturdays per month.
The Humane Society offers pets who are previously spayed/
neutered, heartworm free, current on vaccines, micro-chipped and
on flea and heartworm prevention. The spaying or neutering and
rabies vaccine has not previously been done to the pets at the shelter,
but are included in the adoption costs. Either way that you choose
to save a life, there will be someone there to help you with your
decision and to explain the process to you.
The Humane Society will hold the adoption events from until 4
p.m. two Saturdays per month, at the Animal Services Shelter out at
the Levy County Landfill. The address for Animal Services is 12055
NE. 69" Lane, Bronson, Fla., 32621. Contact numbers are (352) 486-
5138 at Animal Service and (352) 486-5705 for the Humane Society.
The Humane Society would also like to remind citizens that they
need to have a plan for a disaster should we have a storm come our
way. Levy County Commissioners have provided a building for
emergency sheltering for your pets. This shelter will open if and
when the Emergency Operations Center opens a shelter for people.
The shelter is located at Levy County Animal Services.
The next adoption event will be Saturday, August 4 at the above
address. There will not be a clinic on this day. The next clinic will be
on August 18, from 3 to 4 p.m.
If you wish to assist the Humane Society of Levy County, Inc.
please come out and volunteer.
Thank you,
Michael Schenk, President

Dixie Sportsman Outdoor



Expo September 15

Mark your calendar now for the first annual Dixie Sportsman Outdoor Expo to be held
Saturday, Sept. 15. The event will be held on the banks of the beautiful Suwannee River, just
north of Old Town at the old "KOA Campground," about 1.5 miles north of U.S. 19 on SR
349.
If you love the outdoors, this year's family-oriented, expo will surely be what you're
looking for and will include numerous activities, contests, games, exhibits, music, vendor
displays, a free evening barbeque meal and a chance to hear a word from C'Mere Deer and
Delta Ag Wildlife spokesperson Al Stone.
Once you have registered for this free event, you'll be given tickets and have an
opportunity to win numerous prizes including a Kawasaki four-wheeler. Activities include
an archery contest, goat ropin', redneck olympics, and catfish lasso to name just a few of the
events. But remember, you must register to participate. It'sfree and it's easy.
This event is similar to the highly successful Outdoor Expo held in Branford for the past
three years. In fact, Robert Bradow, founder of Cross Heir Outfitters and event organizer in'
Branford will be an integral part of the Dixie Expo, providing the stage, sound and cooking
equipment all neatly packaged in a huge camouflaged enclosed trailer designed specifically
for the touring ministry to share inspirational messages and family togetherness through
outdoor activities.
Gates open to the event at 10 a.m. and you can register then, but you can save time with
early registration, available soon. Keep watching your local newspaper for a registration
form or register on-line at www.crossheiroutfitters.org. If you register online, please print a
hard copy of the form and bring with you. You can register your entire family on one form.
If you are a vendor and would like to participate in this event, please call (352) 498-5107
for more information.
The Dixie Sportsman Outdoor Expo is being sponsored by Dixie County area churches.,

Beauty's Haven heaven on earth for


rescued horses and the folks who love them


By Steve Jarboe
STAFF WRITER
Perhaps as you've driven down Morriston's rural roads you've
noticed the area's many horse farms. After all, the entire region is
well-known for its horses.
At least one Morriston ranch both is and is not just like its
neighbors. Beauty's Haven Farm and Equine Rescue implies its
function. Located on County Route 326, between 41 and 121, the
farm is home to several rescued horses. Many are rescued after
being abandoned or abused. Others find a home at Beauty's Haven
Farm after owners find they can no longer care for the animals.
Beauty's owners have also saved horses from being auctioned for
slaughter.
Once rescued, Beauty's Haven Farm owners Bob and Theresa
Batchelor work to rehabilitate and train the horses. Many are trained
as companion animals, for riding, or as therapy horses. The couple
provide for the animals' needs, including the daily food and shelter,
routine hoof care and necessary vet and dental care. They find loving
homes for these horses when they can.
Since costs associated with horse care are so high, the Batchelors
hold several horse show fundraisers a year. Show proceeds help fund
the costs of rescuing and maintaining the animals.
Three shows in the Tailwinds Horse Show Series remain this
year. The next show is scheduled for September 1, followed by
shows October 6, November 3 and the year-ending awards show
December 1. Show times are set so they do not interfere with any
other area horse shows.
The Batchelors have had Beauty's Haven Farm and Equine
Rescue since 2004. The farm was named after their first rescued
horse. Beauty remains at the farm today. She and her fellow horses
find quite a haven on the farm's 18 acres: The land is fenced and
cross-fenced. Horses spend their time in paddocks with green grass
pastures. All paddocks hold shelters. A quarantine paddock consists


of a two-stall barn on two acres
for new arrivals.
The farm includes a show
arena, a six-stall, center-aisle
barn with a feed room, tack
room and two wash racks. Two
adjoining stalls can be easily
converted to a birthing stall. -J'
There is also a workshop with
attached garage for farming 9
equipment.
Shows are One of the barns overlooking
Tailwinds Horse Shows are
approved by both the PAC, or for the Tailwinds Horse Shom
Paint Alternative Competition,
and OEIP, or Open Event Incentive Program. If you would like
show information, wish to make donations or volunteer a little
time, or feel called to adopt a rescued horse, telephone Theresa at
(352) 258-9309 or e-mail her at theresa@beautysequinerescue.

For those not familiar with its name, Dailey-Scales Park is the
sports venue used by the Williston Youth Athletic Association just
north of the city on Hwy 41 and 27. The 21-acre park holds six
baseballlsoftball fields, a football field and a soccer field.
The city of Williston received a second grant of $200,000.00 to
continue with improvements scheduled for the park. District 10 State
Representative Will Kendrick presented the check to city council
members during a ceremony last week at the park.
The money will be used for football field lighting, and lighting
for two baseball fields, batting cages, bleachers, and a picnic area.
When completed all six baseball fields will have lighting.
The Youth Association leases the park from the city of Williston.
Approximately 400 youth make up the WYAA baseball teams and
another 400 youth combine to play football and soccer, or to begin
their cheerleading careers. There are also about 100 adults who play
league softball at the park..
