New emergency Tanker Driver Unhurt in Chiefland Accident


system


provides clear


communication
By LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER

Levy County's new emergency communications
system is up and running, providing law enforcement with
clear broadcast and reception in almost every area of the
county.
Commissioners received an update on the
communications system from Chip Rich, Levy County
Sheriffs Office director of information. Rich said the
transition from the old system, which provided poor
communication in various parts of the county, to the new
system was almost flawless.
"This has been one of the most seamless and
transparent transitions that I have taken part in," Rich said.
Law enforcement agencies in the county, with the
exception of the Williston Police Department, have
adopted the new communications system, which came
on line on Sept. 10. Fire Services and Emergency
Management will be the next to adopt the system, Rich
said.
The $1.5 million communications system transmits on
800 MHz frequencies, providing better communication
than the older VHF system. The old system was fraught
with communication blind spots and poor quality
transmissions.
Communication problems continue in southeastern
portions of the county around Williston because of the
distances between towers, Rich said. The mobile units
in cars function fine with 35 watts. of power, but the
smaller, portable units, which use only three watts, are not
functioning well, he said. Sheriffs officials anticipated the
problem.
The county plans to upgrade the tower in that area with
support from a Homeland Security grant that requires
only a 20 percent contribution from the county.

Two bomb threats
were reported last
week at Chiefland area
schools, and both turned
out to be pranks.
A ninth-grade girl
was arrested Friday in
an investigation by the
Chiefland Police Depart-
ment.
"Of course it's a sec-
ond-degree felony," said
Chiefland Police Chief
Robert Douglas.
The bomb threat was
a prank, said Douglas.
Investigators found the
bomb-threat message
scribbled on a piece of
toilet paper.

The driver of a tanker was cited
for careless driving when his truck
overturned in a accident on North
Main Street and North Young Av-
enue Sept 26 in Chiefland.
Accident investigators said
the tanker driver was attempting
to make a left turn from south-
bound Main Street when the truck
overturned. The driver, Michael
Gargano of Bronson, suffered
minor cuts and abrasions from
the accident but refused medical
treatment The Florida Division of
Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles report states that the tanker
may have been going too fast for
conditions, causing the load in the
trailer to shift or surge. The tanker
overturned, with only minor dam-
age. However, the tanker caused
an estimated $2,000 in damage to
the sidewalk, roadway and curb-
ing, according to the report


"We might pay $20,000
to $25,000 a year for three
years and have a full fix in
that area," Rich said.
Rich said that other
counties, including Gilchrist
and Alachua, are looking
at the Levy County
communications system in
planning future upgrades.

ing there was a bomb
that is going to go off at
1:30 p.m., and it was in
the gym," said Douglas
Friday just after arrest-
ing the suspect.
The suspect, Douglas
said, was in the girl's
locker room and placed
the note on a fellow
student's book bag. The
student then took the
note to her coach, and
the authorities were in-
formed.
Shortly after that, the
department's trained
bomb dog, Rossi, came
and swept the school
looking for any evidence
of a bomb, Douglas said.
After no evidence was
reported of a bomb at the
gym, the officers gath-

Bronson fire under


investigation
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Bronson Fire Rescue was dispatched to a
building at 220 Fairground Road Sept. 27 to battle
the mounting flames coming out of the roof and
windows. Williston Fire Rescue and the Archer Fire
Department were also called to the scene for backup
relief.
Upon arrival, the Bronson Fire Department
reported that the house was engulfed in flames, or
"fully involved," and was difficult to save.
Williston's fire truck, Tanker 72, laid 600 feet of
a four-inch-diameter water supply hose from the
hydrant on Main Street and Fairground Avenue to
supply Bronson's Engine 70 with water to combat the
rising flames.
As the fire grew out of control, engine crews
from Archer and Williston fire departments assisted
the Bronson firefighters in extinguishing the fire.
Firefighters had to attack the fire from outside the
structure because of the risk of the roof collapsing.
Because the owners were out of town, the power
was turned off. The State Fire Marshall's Office was
called in, and the fire is under investigation.


Guardian Ad
Litem swears
in six new
volunteers

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Moments before the
swearing-in ceremony for
the newest Guardian Ad
Litem volunteers began,
case coordinator Michael
Whiting explained the
significance of the program
in Levy County.
"It's a great event. I
really appreciate the family
support here, because that's
what it takes. This job is
not for everybody ... I'm
proud of the volunteers and
that they completed the
training, which is a grueling
effort," said Whiting.
The Guardian Ad Litem
volunteers are residents
who give their time to
become part of a court
program to represent the
best interests of an assigned
child. They become a
representative for the child
before the court, social
service agencies and the
community. They also
protect the child during
a family crisis and court
proceedings, and they
follow the child's progress
throughout the duration of
the case.

Department. Another
$50 reward was offered
by the school's principal
for any information that
leads to the arrest of the
culprit, said Douglas.
K-9 Rossi conducted a
thorough and meticulous
search that provided no
evidence of a bomb af-
ter the entire school was
evacuated.
At the time, the
Chiefland High School
was placed on lock-
down for precautionary
measure because it is in
close proximity of the
middle school.
"We evacuated the
whole school and actu-
ally had to search every
classroom while the kids
were out on the football
field," said Douglas.
Douglas said these
pranks are a huge waste
of the department's time
and resources.
"This is the third one
this year. We had another
one about two months
ago," he said.

The ChieflandPolice
Department is continuing the
investigation, and anyone with
information is asked to call the
department at (352) 493-6777
or Steve Ellis, school resource
deputy, at (352) 486-5111.

physical education class

When the determina-
tion was made, the girl
confessed, and then her
parents were contacted.
The school was not
entirely evacuated only
the gym. Chiefland au-
thorities are not taking
this lightly.
The first threat, a
prank bomb threat by a
Chiefland Middle School
student, is now being
investigated as a serious
felony.
After the bomb threat
message was found,
Chiefland Middle School
authorities immediately
notified Steve Ellis,
school resource deputy,
about the threat.
The first bomb scare
began on the morning
of Sept. 27 at 9:16 a.m.
when a bomb threat was
located in one of the
boys' restrooms. It stat-
ed, "There is a bomb at
school," crudely written
on one of the walls.
The investigation is
still open, and a $50
reward is being offered
by the Chiefland Police

Association for Retarded
Citizens thanks the commission
By LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County Association for Retarded Citizens presented a plaque to county
commissioners Tuesday thanking them for their continued support.
Commissioners took the opportunity to praise the association for its support of retarded
citizens and the initiatives it undertakes.
Commissioners noted that association members engaged in productive activities such as
wood working and furniture refinishing.
The association "provides these challenged adults an opportunity to earn money," said
Commissioner Nancy Bell.
Levy County Clerk Danny Shipp had a desk refinished by the association.
"It's a beautiful piece of furniture," he said.
Shipp noted that the association also sponsors several well-known fund-raisers, including
the Ride to Provide and the Wild Hog Canoe Race.

IS TiIlRlIN A '-TRIAL


LAWYER IN jTj1.


IIOUSE?


By ANN COULTER


The only "crisis" in health care in this country is that doctors are paid too little. (Also they've come
up with nothing to help that poor Dennis Kucinich.)
But the Democratic Party treats doctors like they're Klan members. They wail about how much
doctors are paid and celebrate the trial lawyers who do absolutely nothing to make society better, but
swoop in and steal from the most valuable members of society.
Maybe doctors could get the Democrats to like them if they started suing their patients.
It's only a matter of time before the best and brightest students forget about medical school and go to
law school instead. How long can a society based on suing the productive last?
You can make 30 times as much money as doctors by becoming a trial lawyer suing doctors.
You need no skills, no superior board scores, no decade of training and no sleepless residency. But
you must have the morals of a drug dealer. (And the bank wire transfer number to the Democratic
National Committee.)
The editors of The New York Times have been engaging in a spirited debate with their readers over
whether doctors are wildly overpaid or just hugely overpaid. The results of this debate are available
on TimeSelect, for just $49.95.
"Many health care economists," the Times editorialized, say the partisan wrangling over health care
masks a bigger problem: "the relatively high salaries paid to American doctors."
Citing the Rand Corp., the Times noted that doctors in the U.S. "earn two to three times as much as
they do in other industrialized countries." American doctors earn about $200,000 to $300,000 a year,
while European doctors make $60,000 to $120,000. Why, that's barely enough for Muslim doctors in
Britain to buy plastic explosives to blow up airplanes!
How much does Pinch Sulzberger make for driving The New York Times stock to an all-time low?
Probably a lot more than your podiatrist.
In college, my roommate was in the chemistry lab Friday and Saturday nights while I was dancing
on tables at the Chapter House. A few years later, she was working 20-hour days as a resident at
Mount Sinai doing liver transplants while I was frequenting popular Upper East Side drinking
establishments. She was going to Johns Hopkins for yet more medical training while I was skiing
and following the Grateful Dead. Now she vacations in places like Rwanda and Darfur with Doctors
Without Borders while I'm going to Paris.
Has anyone else noticed the nonexistence of a charitable organization known as "Lawyers Without
Borders"?
She makes $380 for an emergency appendectomy, or one-ten-thousandth of what John Edwards made
suing doctors like her, and one-fourth of what John Edwards' hairdresser makes for a single shag cut.
Edwards made $30 million bringing nonsense lawsuits based on junk science against doctors. To
defend themselves from parasites like Edwards, doctors now pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in
medical malpractice insurance every year.
But as the Times would note, doctors in Burkina Faso only get $25 and one goat per year.
As long as we're studying the health care systems of various socialist countries, are we allowed
to notice that doctors in these other countries aren't constantly being sued by bottom-feeding trial
lawyers stealing one-third of the income of people performing useful work like saving lives?
But the Democrats (and Fred Thompson) refuse to enact tort reform legislation to rein in these
charlatans. After teachers and welfare recipients, the Democrats' most prized constituency is trial
lawyers. The ultimate Democrat constituent would be a public schoolteacher on welfare who needed

SDoctors graduate at the top of their classes at college and then spend nearly a decade in grueling
work at medical schools. Most doctors don't make a dime until they're in their early 30s, just in time
to start paying off their six-figure student loans by saving people's lives. They have 10 times the IQ
of trial lawyers and 1,000 times the character.
Yeah, let's go.after those guys. On to nuns next!
But Times' readers responded to the editorial about doctors being overpaid with a slew of indignant
letters -- not at the Times for making such an idiotic argument, but at doctors who earn an average of
$200,000 per year. Letter writers praised the free medical care in places like Spain. ("Nightmare" in
the Ann Coulter dictionary is defined as "having a medical emergency in Spain.")
One letter-writer proposed helping doctors by having the government take over another aspect of
the economy -- the cost of medical education:
"If we are to restructure the system by which we pay doctors to match Europe, which seems
prudent as well as inevitable, we must also finance education as Europeans do, by using state dollars
to finance the full or majority cost of higher education, including professional school."
And then to reduce the cost of medical school, the government could finance "the full or majority
Cost" of construction costs of medical schools, and "the full or majority cost" of the trucks that bring
the cement to the construction site and the "the full or majority cost" of coffee that the truck drivers
drink while hauling the cement and ... it makes my head hurt.
I may have to see a doctor about this. I should probably get on the waiting list now in case Hillary
gets elected.
That's how liberals think: To fix an industry bedeviled by government controls, we'll spread the
coercion to yet more industries!
The only sane letter on the matter, I'm happy to report, came from the charming town of New
Canaan, Conn., which means that I am not the only normal person who still reads the Times. Ray
Groves wrote:
"Last week, I had the annual checkup for my.2000 Taurus. I paid $95 per hour for much needed body
work. Next month, when I have my own annual physical, I expect and hope to pay a much higher
rate to my primary care internist, who has spent a significant portion of his life training to achieve his
Position of responsibility."
There is nothing more to say.

to retire


SPa~rt 2


This idea probably sounds very appealing, especially after long days and countless
hours of work.. You probably envision seeing the world, visiting family, golf, whatever
your dream retirement visions may be. But many financial planners caution that early
retirement may not be all that it's cracked up to be. And it's not the money they're
talking about; it's the whole psychology of early retirement.
Money seems to be the first idea that comes to mind when looking at an early
retirement, not actually being psychologically ready. Let's assume you have sufficient
and reasonably dependable financial resources to see you through an early retirement.
As equally challenging is whether you're psychologically ready to retire early. Here are
some of the major psychological issues to consider before taking the plunge.
Boredom. Perhaps the number one complaint in retirement is boredom. Daily rounds
of golf can get old quickly, particularly if all your regular golfing buddies still hold jobs.
Boredom can be a problem in retirement at any age, but it is especially a challenge in early
retirement because you're looking at potentially many more years to fill with something
meaningful. A good indication that this might be a problem is if you don't currently have
outside interests, if work is your life.
Lack of job stress. Lack of job stress sounds like a benefit of retirement, and for many
it is. But while someone age 65 or 70 might be ready for a less hectic life, that's not
necessarily the case for someone who's 50 or 55 and at the peak of their career.
Lack of social contact. Work is a major source of social contact. Losing touch with
co-workers can be difficult under normal retirement circumstances, but early retirement
exacerbates the problem.
Differing retirement dates. It's common with early retirement for only one person
in a marriage to be retiring early. The other may not have that luxury, or may not want
to. That can cause friction. The working spouse may expect the retired spouse to keep
house, or may resent watching the spouse sleep in while he or she trudges off to work.
1eTc spouse THtIr~l im Llee 1 :
friction is most common when the husband retires before the wife retires, according to a
Cornell University study.
Forced early retirement. In a sluggish economy, many people are being laid off, and
some are taking early retirement packages. The problem here is, up to this point they
may not have thought about or planned for retiring early. The early retirement package
may sound good, but it takes time to adjust to the idea of sudden, early retirement.

Worries about money. Ideally, you've determined, perhaps with the help of a financial
planner, that you have enough money for early retirement. Still, it's not uncommon to
worry financially at times, particularly if there are unexpected expenses or a bear market.
The worry can be worse for early retirees because they're funding a longer retirement
period-perhaps 10 or 15 years longer. And it can be emotionally deflating to be forced
back to work.

How do you avoid or minimize these psychological hurdles of early retirement? Here are
several ideas:
Be certain you are in good financial shape.
Prepare for early retirement starting now, regardless of your age. Envision what
you truly want to do and how you'll handle these psychological hurdles. And
you'll need to start planning as soon as possible to make it work financially.
Don't retirefrom work, retire to something. Simply quitting work may not
necessarily create a fulfilling, enjoyable retirement.
"Practice" your retirement before you retire-hobbies, vacation spots and
the other aspects of your vision. Be flexible before settling on long-term
commitments such as buying a home in a new location.
Talk it over carefully with your spouse, so you both agree on expectations such
as travel and housework.
Consider semi-retirement. Work part time or only a few months out of the
year in a job you like but that is perhaps less stressful. This provides a great
psychological transition into full retirement, as well as financial benefits.

Not FDIC Insured | Not Bank Guaranteed I May lose value


Hello and welcome to Your Sheriff's Corer. As many of
you know, last week there was a tragic boating accident in
which a young adult lost his life during a fishing trip on the
Suwannee River. Before I go any further with this article, I
again express my condolences to the family and friends of
Roderick Page.
The abundance of rivers, lakes and the close proximity
to the Atlantic and Gulf are the reasons Florida is home
for millions of people who enjoy the great outdoors on
the water. Boaters enjoy the benefits of being in one of the
greatest boating locations; but, with this, there is danger. In
order to get the maximum enjoyment out of your Florida
boating experience, it is critical that you have a thorough
understanding of boating safety principles. It would be nice
if we knew when an emergency was about to occur; however,
we rarely get a second chance to prepare for an emergency in
the real world. Having all of the required and necessary safety
equipment on your boat before you head out on the water is
an important first step. Knowing the boating laws can help
you stay safe and also avoid a citation from law enforcement.
The more knowledge you have regarding the safe operation


of your boat, the more you can enjoy this boating paradise
called Florida. You are never too young or old to learn a thing
or two about boating safety.
Florida has the unfortunate distinction of leading the nation
in deaths due to boating accidents. In 2006, Florida had 69
fatalities, with Texas coming in second with 47 fatalities. The
top ten counties in Florida with reported boating accidents
during the 2006 calendar year are: Monroe, Palm Beach,
Dade, Pinellas, Lee, Broward, Collier, Brevard, Escambia,
and Duval counties. It is my goal for Levy county never to
appear in the top ten for boating accidents. Many of these fatal
accidents appear to be somewhat uneventful, other than the
fact that someone lost their life. They usually take place in
calm, protected waters and involve a middle aged or older
man who has plenty of boating experience and knows how to
swim. More often than not, the victims drown as a result of
unexpectedly falling overboard. Always pay attention when
operating your boat and always wear your life jacket.
Safety Equipment/Tips: You must have an approved
personal flotation device for each person on board and it is
recommended that everyone wears one. Also on your checklist


you should have a fire extinguisher, visual distress signal,
sound producing device such as a whistle, horn or bell, anchor
and either an oar or paddle. It is recommended before you go
on the open waters to let a family member know where you
are going and when you expect to be back on shore. Always
do a safety check on your vessel before launching.
Boating Safety Education: Anyone 21 years of age or
younger is required to have either successfully completed a
National Association of State Boating Law Administrators
(NASBLA) approved boating education course or have passed
a course equivalency or temporary certificate examination
and have in their possession a boating education ID card
and a photo identification card before operating a vessel in
Florida with a motor of 10 HP or more. Identification cards
for persons completing the course or the equivalency exam
are good for a lifetime.
In a spilt second, with no warning, you can be involved
in a boating accident. Please pay attention and do not violate
any laws; do not drink alcohol while operating a vessel and
be courteous to your fellow boaters.

GUARDIAN AD LITEM Continued from Page 1


Pam Pierce, Guardian
Ad Litem director, talked
about the mission of her six-
county circuit in explaining
why these volunteers are so
important.
"In that circuit, there are
1,150 kids that are in the
dependency system, which
is way too many kids," said
Pierce.
.Most of the children
*:get lost in the system, said


Pierce, adding, "So we need
people to advocate and
volunteer," to help with the
mounting case loads.
"If you have one or
two cases, what you do is
incredibly valuable," said
Pierce.
For one child in need of
medical attention, Pierce
said, "... this medically
neglected, mentally disabled
child is in need of care


desperately. Nobody had her
braces fixed, on and on and
on it's a nightmare."
Now that the child has a
sponsor, Pierce said, she is
getting the help she needs.
Judge David A. Giant
began the proceedings,
swearing in the six new
volunteers: Tammy Hewett,
Sharon Wolfe, David Kerney,
Veleita Lovelace, Deborah
Junkin and Paul Champion.

JARBOE PROMOTED TO SPORTS EDITOR











Joural sports writer Steve Jarboe has been promoted from
staff writer to sports editor please join us in welcoming Steve
to his new position.


MiSS Hone sajys...

Monday, 9 a.m. Good morning! Isn't it great to be alive and well and still
in the land of the living? Yeah, I know Jesus loves me and He takes care of
his own! Where would I be without Jesus and yes, all of you, my friends and
my little dogs who love me without any reservations?
Little Bit and Sugar are outside in the fenced yard and Sweet Pea & Misty
are both up here in my chair with me, now you tell me that isn't love, but make me believe
it never! Hush up Donald I know you love me and so does Mary and yes, Barbara and many
others of you, there is just too many to name, but let e say I love you too!
My sympathy goes out to Janice and Earl, who lost their little dog "Chence," who went to
Doggie Heaven this past week! He will be missed very much and cannot be replaced.
I guess I'll make this short and sweet and take it to the Journal. So until next week God
bless each of you and all of your pets and loved ones.
Miss +HoVey



LOG CABIN QIIILTERS

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs., Sept. 27, at the Levy Co. Quilt Museum. Another busy
day, Ann Hardee put in a quilt she can quilt at home while she takes care of Wayne. Jannie
brought her Fair Quilt that goes to Tampa in Jan. What a work of art and she really takes on
quilts that we can enjoy, but would never have the nerve to make it. We are proud Jannie is a
great part of our club.
We had a load of goodies brought in and everyone really had a good time going through
everything. We are planning on putting up tables outside and start having a porch sale. We
have so much brought in that we have no place for it and we have to be thinking about the
Quilt Show in Dec. We all appreciate all that comes in and what we can't use we take yarn
and fabric to the nursing home for the ladies to have something to do.
Greg and six boys were out Tues. and we got bulbs planted, the yard mowed, watering was
done and so much more. Thanks Lancaster. We also enjoyed a visit from Mr. Gore; he is in
the drug program with his dog and does a great job.
Lunch was great with bean soup, beets, kraut, apple salad, eggs, potatoes, key lime pie,
Watergate cake and so much more. There were 15 present.
Winnell Horne is the Director of the Levy County Quilt Museum, Inc.

Importing deer and

elk carcasses from

CWD states illegal
It is illegal to bring into Florida carcasses of any species of
the family Cervidae (deer, elk and moose) from 14 states and
two Canadian provinces where chronic wasting disease (CWD)
has been detected, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
The states and n provinces where the deadly disease has been
detected are: New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, South
Dakota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New York, West Virginia,
Kansas, Oklahoma, Montana, Minnesota, Saskatchewan and
Alberta. Visit the CWD Alliance Web site at http://www.cwd-info.
org/ for the most up-to-date CWD information.
"To date, no cases of CWD have been found in Florida," said
FWC's wildlife veterinarian, Mark Cunningham. "Hunters can
help prevent the spread of CWD into Florida by observing the
restrictions placed on bringing carcasses in from 6ther areas
where the disease has been detected."
CWD, first identified in Colorado in 1967, is a disease that
affects the central nervous system and is related to "mad cow"
disease in cattle and scrapie in sheep. The disease always is fatal
to the infected animal, but there are no known cases of it being
transmitted to people, domestic animals or livestock.
'Hunters still can bring back de-boned meat from any CWD-
affected region, as well as finished taxidermy mounts, hides,
skulls, antlers and teeth as long as all soft tissue has been
removed. Whole, bone-in carcasses and parts may be brought
back to Florida if they were harvested from non-affected CWD
states or provinces.
To report sick or dead deer suspected of having CWD, call
the CWD hotline, (866) 293-9282. For more information about
CWD, visit MyFWC.com/cwd.

Poison prevention tips

for fall season

The official start.of fall, September 23, is here. With
the expected cooler weather we will be seeking warmer
environments and spending more time indoors. During
this time, children will often explore kitchen and medicine
cabinets, garages and closets.
While participating in indoor school activities, younger
children are exposed to glues, inks, paints, felt tip markers,
chalkboard dust and cleaners, and other potentially toxic
arts and crafts items. Exposure to traces of these items
may result in only minor effects; however, repeated and/or
longer exposures can result in serious side effects.
The Florida/USVI Poison Information Center in
Jacksonville responded to over 55,000 calls in 2006 with
48% of these calls concerning poisoning emergencies for
children under the age of six years. Among the top five
common causes of poisoning emergencies were household
cleaning substances and medicines.
Following are some of the common fall poisoning
hazards. Take the time to educate yourself and your
children about these potentially toxic hazards. Don't forget
to call the Florida/USVI Poison Information Center in
Jacksonville (800) 222-1222 in a poisoning emergency.
Cough and cold medications are often pleasant tasting;
thus, children may drink large amounts. These medicines'
also may contain cough suppressants, decongestants or
antihistamines, which can cause agitation or drowsiness.
Others may contain aspirin or acetaminophen which, in
the wrong amount, can cause an upset stomach, sleepiness,
nausea, vomiting, thinning of the blood, seizures or liver
damage. Additionally, some of these medicines contain
alcohol which can cause drunkenness, low blood sugar
levels or even seizures in children.
Mercury glass thermometers should only be used as
directed and broken glass thermometers should never be
used. Even though the form of mercury that is contained in
this type of thermometer is not a form that is well absorbed,
the clean up process can be time consuming. Your Poison
Center recommends not to vacuum broken mercury
thermometers but to call the Center at (800) 222-1222 to
assess the situation.
Chewable vitamins are flavorful and colorful, but
swallowing large amounts can cause upset stomach, nausea
and vomiting. Swallowing large amounts of vitamins
containing iron can cause significant toxicity.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless and odorless
gas which is produced by incomplete combustion of
carbon containing materials. Automobile exhaust leaks,
malfunctioning gas-fueled heating appliances, wood stoves
are sources of carbon monoxide. Flu-like symptoms may be.
experienced such as fatigue, sleepiness, headache, nausea,
and vomiting. As we approach colder temperatures, we
turn up the heat in our homes. Extreme care and caution
to avoid exposure to carbon monoxide should be taken.
Your gas-fueled heating appliances should be inspected for
proper ventilation and operation. To protect your family,
install carbon monoxide detectors in your home if you have
any gas-fueled appliance.
Plants and berries abound during the fall season and
extra caution should be taken to minimize poisoning
hazards. Label all plant containers and learn the names
of plants in and around the home. Berries from flowering
plants may fall to the ground and extreme care should
be taken to prevent a child from swallowing the berries.
Symptoms to observe in children swallowing berries are
mild mouth and skin irritation and an upset stomach.
Fertilizer is also commonly used during the fall season.
Keep children and pets out of fertilized areas. Symptoms to
look for in the case of accidental poisoning from fertilizers
include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
Remember to call the Poison Information Center at (800)
222-1222 in case of a poisoning emergency. The Poison
Information Center is open daily, 24 hours per day, and
skilled healthcare professionals will immediately respond to
poison emergencies concerning these, and other, potential
fall poisoning hazards.


Spring turkey quota

hunt worksheets

available Oct. 15

Hunters looking to do some turkey hunting on most
of Florida's wildlife management areas during the 2008
spring turkey season need to apply for quota hunt permits
beginning 10 a.m. (EDT), Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Quota hunt permit worksheets will be available
Oct. 15 on the Florida Pish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC) Web site at MyFWC.com/hunting
under "Quota Hunts." Worksheets also are available at
county tax collectors' offices and at all FWC regional
offices.
Applicants must apply through the FWC's Total
Licensing System (TLS). Hunters may apply online
at www.wildlifelicense.com or turn in their completed
worksheets to any tax collector or license agent.
All applicants, regardless of when they apply, have the
same chance of being selected as long as they submit their
applications within the application period. Applicants
must apply by 11:59 p.m. (EST), Thursday, Nov. 8, to be
included in one of two random drawings.
Hunters, who were included in the random drawing
last year but were not issued a quota hunt permit, will
be included in this year's first drawing, known as the
"preference drawing."
"When you submit your application, there is no need
to attach any rejection notice you may have received
last year. The TLS knows who was rejected and who is
eligible," said FWC quota hunt coordinator Eddie White.
"When you submit your application, you will receive a
receipt showing the hunts you have applied for and your
preference status. If you are eligible for the preference
drawing, your receipt will indicate 'Preference: Yes.'
Those not eligible for the preference drawing will be
included in the second drawing."
Hunters also may apply as a "group." A group leader
must first apply to create the group. The group's number
will be printed on the group leader's receipt. Each person
wishing to join the group must submit his own application
using that unique group number to join the leader's group.
If chosen, applicants will receive, by mail, a spring
turkey quota hunt permit before Phase 2 of the selection
process begins Dec. 5. Applicants not chosen may re-apply
during Phase 2 on a first-come, first-served basis for any
hunts not filled and will be eligible for the preference
drawing next year. Applicants may check to see if they
were successful by clicking on "Check Permit Availability
and Drawing Results" at MyFWC.com/hunting after Nov.
20. ,. .

quota hunt permits, visit MyFWC.com/hunting. :t

Tech Prep still in


full effect

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER


Students have many options these days to pursue a
career in a field of their choice. Tech Prep is offered
at all the high schools in Levy County and includes a
dozen programs, expanding the curriculum and providing
opportunities that were offered only at vocational
academies in the past.
Although Tech Prep programs vary from high school to
high school, Tech Prep is a program of study that combines
four years of high school with two years of post-secondary
education or college credit.
Carol Jones, career and technical education coordinator
for Levy County, said Tech Prep is geared to provide
college credit for a certificate program only for an associate
of arts degree, articulated with Central Florida Community
College and at Santa Fe Community College.
"It's only for programs that we have articulated with the
college. It's for career and technical education," said Jones.
Most of the articulated credit is through CFCC, said
Jones; however, some of the credits, such as building
construction and dental hygiene, are offered only at SFCC.
"We're working really hard to make sure students follow
up, as far as when they get to the college, so they can get
their paperwork and get their credit," said Jones.
Tech Prep students can also qualify for the Florida Gold
Seal scholarship.
"The Gold Seal is for students who complete a career
and technical program with a B average. If they also meet
all the other academic requirements, they can qualify for
a scholarship that pays a majority of their tuition," said
Jones.
There are some programs that are only "certificate
programs," Jones said. This means that if the students
complete the course work and maintain a B average, they
will get credit at CFCC and not have to pay for the credit
hours. "For our kids to get the credit at SFCC, they have to
go there and take an exam on their campus."
Jones said her department is moving into the area of
industry certification.
This is part of the new construction class program that
is offered on at Bronson High School through a CHOICE
grant provided by Florida Workforce, in conjunction with
the Citrus-Levy-Marion County Workforce Board, said
Jones.
"We've just scheduled our first advisory board meeting
on Nov. 6 for the building construction class," she said.
"We're going to go out and tour the classrooms and look at
the work some of he students have been doing."
The construction class is offered only at Bronson high
School, Jones said, but if students from other schools
would like to take the class, they would be able to do so by
a CHOICE Replication grant that will make it possible for
any Levy High School student to commute to the class.
"Workforce would be willing to, if the student meets the
required criteria, pay for transportation expenses," she said.

New fee schedule for recreational hunting

and fishing licenses goes into effect Oct. 1

Beginning Oct. 1, a new fee schedule will be in effect for all recreational licenses
issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).
During its 2007 session, the Florida Legislature passed a bill to increase the fees for
all recreational saltwater and freshwater fishing and hunting licenses. Hunting license fees
were last increased in 1979 and fishing license fees in 1989.
Bob Wattendorf, who heads up marketing in the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management, said, "When fees for fishing licenses were last increased, in 1989,
gasoline cost 89 cents a gallon. But even with the new fee increases, the cost of hunting and
fishing in Florida falls below the median costs for the other 49 states. Also the percentage of
increase is well below the rise in the cost of living seen since 1989."
All the fees from these licenses go back into conserving fish and wildlife resources
and benefit anglers and hunters.
The increased revenue, expected to total $10 million annually within four years,
will not create new programs, but will offset a predicted $12.5-million deficit by 2010,
said Sandra Wilson, director of finance and budget at FWC. In addition to issuing the
licenses, FWC is charged with directly conserving fish and wildlife resources, and it creates
and enforces rules and regulations regarding hunting and fishing in the state as well as
promoting boating safety and access.
Florida remains the number-one fishing destination in the United States, according
to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 2006 national survey. In addition, Florida ranks
number-one in the nation for its $11 billion'generated annually through hunting, fishing and
wildlife-viewing activities throughout the state.
FWC presented its findings to the Legislature earlier this year. The projected deficit
would leave revenue streams for marine fisheries, freshwater fisheries and hunting in
jeopardy. In addition, programs already in place, such as those for panthers, manatees and
other imperiled species, would need funding to keep pace with increased costs.
FWC hired Southwick Associates, a private firm specializing in fish-and-wildlife
economics, to determine,the impact from an increase in fees.
"The optimal price for each sport fishing and hunting license issued was
scientifically determined," Wattendorf said. "Consideration for the increase included the
effect on angling and hunting participation, customer satisfaction, tourism and public
support for conservation."
However, the new fees were kept to the minimum necessary to offset the projected
deficit, rather than at a level that would maximize revenue. Compared to the price of
movies, golf, bowling and other forms of recreation, fishing and hunting fees remain very
affordable, especially when viewed as an unlimited, year-round privilege, Wattendorf said.
FWC also carefully considered the impact on federal aid for sport fishing and
wildlife restoration, which comes to Florida based on the certified number of hunting and
fishing license holders and size of the state. Further research consisted of consulting focus
groups and surveying individual hunters and fishermen across Florida. With all of these
findings before them, legislators voted to increase the fees, beginning Oct. 1. As a result,
programs in danger of losing funding, such as freshwater hatcheries, law enforcement
patrols and saltwater fisheries stock assessments, will be able to continue at current levels of
service.
"It will allow our habitat restoration, fish stocking, law enforcement and outreach
programs to continue without cuts," Wattendorf said. "We can't guarantee that some things
won't be trimmed in the future, but the expectation is the license fee increases will prevent
us from going backwards."
Recreational licenses may be purchased online at MyFWC.com, or by calling 1-888-
FISH FLORIDA (347-4356) or 1-888-HUNT FLORIDA (486-8356), or from numerous
sporting goods retailers and at tax collectors' offices. If licenses are not purchased at tax
collectors' offices, additional processing fees will be applied.

Chiefland
implements
evacuation
re-entry
program

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Chiefland has
implemented a two-phased
approach to a post-storm re-
entry plan.
The look-and-leave
and comeback phases are
the two modes that will
allow residents to assess
the damage to their homes,
leave, and then, after the
city officials have assessed
the condition of the city, be
allowed access back into the
city.
"The mayor will declare
a state of emergency, then
say a hurricane devastates
everything and everybody
evacuates. This plan tells
us how we are going to go
back in," said Commissioner
Teresa Barron, explaining
that one of the goals is a
safer re-entry "without the
possibility of looting."
The plan will have no
fiscal impact on the city
and is necessary because of
the degree of damage that
could cause a serious threat
to the public in a sizable
storm, such as Hurricane
Katrina, where re-entry to
the city might be extremely
dangerous.
The Chiefland Police
Chief Robert Douglas said
that there would be access
points, clearly marked at the
main entry point, highways
and major roads leading
into the city, that with aid
from the state will give
informationon which areas
are safe.
"The access points will
have mutual help throughout
the state," said Douglas.
Commissioner Sammy
Cason said, "Trying to get
people to leave their homes
is tough," despite the level of
devastation that could occur.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy
said he would like to put the
plan into action as soon as
possible. He also said that
97.3 WSKY-FM would be
the official radio station for
emergency service bulletins.
Barron moved to adopt
the re-entry plan, which
received unanimous
approval, with the few
changes that were made at
the Sept. 24 meeting.

Who will be authorized to
re-enter:
*Public officials, public
safety, city and county public
works, emergency personnel
and credentialed personnel
*News media
*Private utility personnel
(gas, cable, electric, etc.)
*Business owners and
operators (citizen response
team, clergy)
*Residents
Required proof of ID to
enter:
*A Chiefland resident
or business owner
must present one of the
following: a current
Florida driver's license or
Florida identification card
with a Chiefland address;
City of Chiefland current
utility bill and picture ID;
Levy County property tax
statement with Chiefland
address and picture ID; or
proof of employment from
a Chiefland address with
picture ID.

City access points for re-
entry:
*U.S. Highway 27 and 345
*U.S. 19/98 and County
Road 345
*U.S. Highway 27 and U.S.
19/98

The Dunnellon Tigers junior varsity football team scored early and often as they
defeated the Williston Red Devils, 46-12, in junior varsity football action.
The Red Devils kicked offto the Tigers, and on their first possession, the Tigers scored
a touchdown on a 55-yard run to take a 6-0 lead, as the 2-point conversion failed.
The Red Devils came right back as Dontrelle Edwards scampered 33 yards for a
touchdown to tie the game at 6-6, as the Red Devils' 2-point try failed.
On the next possession, the Tigers again scored to take a 12-6 lead as the first quarter
came to a close.
The Red Devils were unable to move the football and punted. The Tigers on the other
hand had an explosive play for a 48-yard touchdown to take a 20-6 lead with the 2-point
conversion.
With a little over two minutes remaining in the first half, the Red Devils were driving
for a score and fumbled the football. The Tigers took quick advantage of the turnover and
ran the ball in for a touchdown of their own to take a 26-6 lead at halftime.
In the second half, it was the Tigers scoring on their first possession of the third
quarter to take a 32 -6 lead. The Red Devils came back with a touchdown to make the
score 32-12 as the 2-point try was stopped by the Tigers.
Then the Red Devils intercepted a pass but gave the football back to the Tigers with
their third fumble of the game. The Tigers scored again, and the 2-point try was good,
giving the Tigers a 40-12 lead.
The Tigers had the football for a last time in the fourth quarter and scored another
touchdown to take a 46-12 win.
The junior varsity Red Devils will travel to West Port today for their next-to-last game
of the season.

The Bronson football Eagles stepped out of their conference on Friday evening to host
the Trenton Tigers, who turned their early lead into a 40-14 win.
"The Tigers will be the best team we see the rest of the season," said Bronson head
football coach Greg Brochetti before the game. Brochetti had apparently done his pre-
game homework on the Eagles' opponent.
As the teams stepped on the field, the Tigers' potent running game began to take its toll
on the Eagles' defense.
The Tigers jumped out to a 13 -0 lead on two Brandon Mathis touchdowns as the first
quarter came to a close. One of the touchdowns was a result of an Eagles' turnover in their
own end of the field.
The always tough Eagles' defense caused a Tiger fumble early in the second quarter as
Eagle Jessie Waybright fell on the loose football for the Eagles. The Eagles moved down

Lady Indians pound The Rock

By SUSAN LEACH

The Chiefland Lady Indians varsity volleyball team had
little trouble with The Rock on Tuesday evening in the
Chiefland Gym, as they dominated in all three games to win
the match,
Lady Indians appeared to be on a mission in game one,
as they opened up a quick 5-0 lead. The Rock called an
:immediate timeout to try and slow the Lady Indians' attack.
After The Rock fell behind 10-2, they called a second
timeout in an effort to again slow down the Lady Indians.
With their continued aggressive play, the Indians took game
one of the match, 25-3.
A small but very vocal Rock crowd never missed an
opportunity to show support for their team.
The Lady Rock team settled in at the start of game two,
but the Lady Indians continued their domination. The Lady
Rock players committed too many unforced errors at the
midway point of the game, and the Lady Indians took game
two with little trouble, 25-11.
The third game had become a formality as the Lady
Indians continued their control with play after play. The
Lady Indians took game three, 25-12, to win the match in
three straight games.
SCassie Labat, Amye Grieves and Jerrica Grimsley played
an outstanding match for the Lady Indians.


Ft. White holds off Williston

Middle School, 16-14

By ANGEL FLOYD
SPORTS WRITER

The Ft..White Middle School Indians held off a
idetermined'WiIkston IMiddle' School Red Devil football
team last week as the teams fought to a scoreless final
quarter. The Indians gained the 2-point lead after trailing the
Red Devils 14-8 midway through the third quarter.
The middle school Red Devils gave up an early
touchdown to the Indians and fell behind 8-0. The Indians
were able to put the ball in the end zone after they recovered
a Red Devil fumble.
The Red Devils managed to pull the score a little closer
with a touchdown of their own to start the second quarter.
The 2-point conversion was stopped by the Indians, and Ft.
White held an 8-6 lead.
On their next possession, the Red Devils scored again,
and Ross was able to scoot into the end zone for the 2-point
conversion, giving the Red Devils a 14-8 lead.
On the first play from scrimmage following the kickoff,
the Indians ran an 85-yard touchdown to tie the game at 14-
14. The 2-point conversion was good as the Indians retook
the lead, 16-14.
Both teams seemed to run out of gas as the third quarter
ended, and this continued throughout the fourth and final
quarter.
The Red Devils drop to 2-1 for the season and have
no game this week. They will resume action on Oct. 9 at
Bradford. Game time is 7 p.m.


Lady Eagles soar over Sand Gnats

By DAVID LEACH
SPORTS WRITER


The 4-2 Bronson Lady Eagles traveled to Yankeetown to face
the Lady Sand Gnats in a volleyball match last Thursday.
The Yankeetown cheerleading squad was on hand to keep the
school spirit running high
for the Lady Sand Gnats
throughout the match.
Both coaching staffs
were optimistic about their
teams before the match got


underway.
Lady Eagles coach Sherrie
Schuler said, "We have a
very young team and some
team members are first-year
players, but we are looking
all right."
Yankeetown coach Becky
Fries said, "Our Lady Sand
Gnats are working very hard,
and we are always ready to
play."

As game one got
underway, the Lady Eagles put together a more complete game
with more consistent returns and took game one, 25-12.
The Lady Sand Gnats put together a run early in game two and
put the outcome in doubt. It was again the consistent play of the
Lady Eagles that proved to be too much for the Lady Sand Gnats
to overcome. The Lady Eagles pulled away for the win in game
two, 25-13, to take the match.
The Ann Hayes, Yankeetown principal, was on hand for the
match and after the game said she was proud of her team and
recalled some recent winning matches for the Sand Gnats.

After a close first game, the junior varsity Chiefland Lady
Indians volleyball team took the match from the junior varsity
Lady Eagles in two games, 31-29 and 25-17.
In the exciting, well-played first game, Lady Indian Reneshia
Bowers put her team in front, 4-1, with four ace serves. Then Lady
Eagle Sara Shouse pulled the game even at 7-7 with three powerful
serves. The Lady Indians continued to pull ahead in the game, but
it was excellent serving by Lady Eagles Julia Harvey and Nikki
Patterson that kept the game tied on several occasions.
The two teams played to an exciting 25-25 score, sending the
game to overtime. The game was then tied at 26, 27, 28 and 29
before the Lady Indians pulled out the win, 31-29.
Down one game, Lady Eagle Luz Marrero tried to ignite her
team as she put them ahead 2-0 before losing the serve. Both
the Lady Indians and the Lady Eagles had some great plays and
volleys in game two. The score was tied at 15-15 before the Lady
Indians jumped ahead, winning game two, 25-17, taking the match
in two straight games.

at 17-15 with the 10-2 run.
Lady Indian Amye Grieves

play and hustle to tie the
score at 19-19.
The Lady Eagles managed

BMS falls to Buccaneers


By STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR

It was the 2-0 Bronson Middle School Eagles and the
2-0 Bradford Middle School Buccaneers locked in a good
football game to see who would remain unbeaten for the
season. In a close game that saw each team give up scoring
opportunities, the outcome of this close game could have
changed on several occasions.
The Eagles scored the first big play of the game as
quarterback Ben Landon hit A.J. Graham for a 45-yard pass
and run to the Buccaneers' 26-yard line. On the next play,
Graham ran around the right side for a 26-yard touchdown
dragging two would-be tacklers into the end zone. The
2-point try was good as Brock Bower smashed in for the
conversion, giving the Eagles an 8-0 lead.
Following a failed attempt of an onside kick by the
Eagles, the Buccaneers moved into the end zone in seven
plays as Marcus Lane ran right up the middle for a 22-yard
touchdown. The 2-point try was no good, and the Eagles lead
was now just 2 points at 8-6.
With their next possession, the Eagles quarterback Landon
again found Graham behind the Buccaneer defenders and
floated a perfect pass to him for a 65-yard Eagle touchdown.
This time the 2-point try was stopped cold, and the Eagles
now had a 14-6 lead.
Again the Eagles scooted
an onside kick that was ,-
recovered by the Buccaneers
on the Eagle side of the
50-yard line giving them
another short field with
which to work.
Three plays and the
Buccaneers were down to
the Eagles' 25-yardline,
whete they scored on the
fourth play of the scenes on
a pass play. The 2-point
conversion was good, and
the score was now tied 14-14
as the first quarter came to

where quarterback Landon
scored for the Eagles. The
2-point try was again stopped, and the Eagles had retaken the
lead, 20-14.
The Eagles continued to hand the Buccaneers excellent
field position, as the Eagles again sent the kickoff just
10 yards trying an onside kick. With the short field, the
Buccaneers drove down to the Eagles' 1-yard line. On a
first-and-goal,

The ball
was returned to the Eagles' 26-yard line. With nine seconds
remaining in the first half, the Buccaneers quarterback
completed a pass to Marcus Lane for a 26-yard touchdown.
The 2-point conversion was good, and the Buccaneers took
the lead for the first time in the game, as the first half came to
an end, 22-20.
As the second half got underway, both teams had trouble
holding onto the football, and the score remained the same as
the third quarter ended at 22-20.
The Eagles mounted a very impressive drive with 4:45 left
in the game. They fumbled the football at the Buccaneers'
45-yard line. After three plays, the Buccaneers Alex
Robinson cut off the left side for a 6-yard touchdown to
extend their lead to 28-20 after the 2-point conversion failed.
The Eagles drove down to the Buccaneers' 20-yard line,
where with just over one minute remaining, the Buccaneers
intercepted a Landon pass to stop any hope for the Eagles to
tie the game.

shadowy places is no way to live. If that's what you've
been doing I want to encourage you to come out into the
light; the Light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Jesus wants to give you a new heart, new coaches, and
rest for your sin wearied soul. Of course, there's your
permanent record to think about too. For the wages of sin
is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 KJV
But anyway- Stealing doesn't get you anything for
free. There'll always be hell to pay. The only thing truly
free in life is love, and boy is Jesus' sweet.

OBITUARIE S


BUT ANYWAY


U Guy E. Sheffleld


Swte-et L


For a brief stint in junior high they put me in charge
of the concession stand during home basketball games.
Looking back, it begs the obvious question, "What were
they thinking?"
Folding money was mighty scarce in my house those
days. Mom didn't generally splurge on a lot of luxuries,
like food and clothing. So while I was disappointed the
concession gig didn't pay in cash, I wasn't completely
discouraged. Just working around so much popcorn and
candy had its rewards, if you know what I mean.
To be honest, it was like a dream come true-for me
and my dentist. You talking about a fox in the henhouse,
my belly had never stayed so full, and my social life was
really picking up too. On game day I was one of the most
popular guys in school!
You would've thought the faculty would have supplied
me with a little supervision, it being my first experience
in retail sales and all, but they didn't. I was left to
learn the ropes on my own. I caught on fast though;
pretty much mastering certain concepts like 'Inventory
Reduction' right off. Then, of course, they actually took
inventory and had to let me go.
Okay, so I admit, I hadn't developed the character to
hold such a lofty position yet. I was just a dumb kid. I'm
not sure what my PE coach's excuse was.
The big galoot used to rap on the back door before I

was officially open for business everyday, "Sheffield let
me have some M&M's!" or "Sheffield let me have some
popcorn." I'd hand him a bag and stick out my hand for
payment. He'd slap it and walk off laughing, "Thanks
Sheffield."
One day my un-righteous indignation finally got the
best of me, and I decided to stand up to the big bully. (Of
course that's easier said than done when he's 6'5" 250
lbs, and you look like a broomstick in a pair of parachute
pants.) That day when coach poked his big buffalo head
in the back door hunting a freebie, I made my stand. Well
kind of. I turned my back and mumbled feebly, "Look
coach. You gotta pay for this stuff. You gon' get me in
trouble."
Coach got a queer far away look in his eyes. I gulped
as he stepped into the room and quietly closed the door
behind him. "Sheffield," he growled picking me up by the
collar, "I'll take what I want. You ain't gonna say nuttin,
you hear?" He was right. I couldn't say 'nuttin' with that
bad breath all over me, practically melting my bugging
eyeballs. I just gulped.
"Besides," he continued, letting me down and politely
straightening my collar, "I'm sure you don't want me
to tell how I seen you giving free goodies to all your
buddies?" I gulped again.
My whole life flashed before my eyes. The principal

White's Church Without Walls in Tampa and Ocala Rivers
Church. She currently has two more books in production.

would love to mark this down on that 'Permanent
Record' he was always threatening me with! Coach
stuffed his gym shorts full of blow-pops and walked out.
As I watched him walking off I realized why he got
paid to be a teacher, because he'd sure taught me a
lesson! I learned if you get involved in shady dealings
you'll inevitably run into some shady characters, and
they'll always be bigger, smarter, and smellier than you.

Levy and Alachua Counties

work together on the Big Read

The Levy County Public Library System and Alachua
County Library District are working together to bring both
communities the Big Read. The Big Read is an initiative
of the National Endowment for the Arts, in partnership
with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and in
cooperation with Arts Midwest. It is designed to revitalize
the role of literary reading by providing citizens with the
opportunity to read and discuss a single book within their
communities.
Through the Big Read grant, the Levy County Public
Library System and the Alachua Library district were
able to hire and arrange for a storyteller to visit Bronson
Elementary School. A special thanks to Linda Legare,
media specialist, at Bronson Elementary and the teachers
for helping arrange Ms. Filer's visit.
Vivian Filer traveled from Gainesville to share with the
children African American tales. Ms. Filer has had many
titles that she has been called throughout her life. She is
proud to be called a mother, a retired professor, a storyteller,
and a singer, but her favorite title of all is a grandmother.
Ms. Filer told stories to the second grade through fifth grade

they were delighted to join in on lively musical stories,
learning hand games such as hambone, and listening to
Ms. Filer sing an educational song about Harriet Tubman.
When Ms. Filer would end one story the children would
immediately start asking for another. After, the storytelling
session, Ms. Filer answered some of the children's questions
and encouraged them to email her with any additional
questions.

Williston Fire Department Evaluates Dogs For

Disaster Search And Rescue


By Dave Griffiths
Williston Fire Department has gone to the dogs, and North Central Florida residents
can rest a little easier because it has. On Saturday, Sept 22, the department's K-9 unit
evaluated nine dogs and handlers for their ability, and the each dog's willingness, to search
disaster debris, tunnels, unfamiliar terrain, and obstacles for trapped victims. Readers will
recall the much praised search dogs that scoured ground zero immediately after 9/11/2001
and for months afterward. Saturday's evaluation provided the dog's owners, handlers, and
the fire department's K9 Search and Rescue (SAR) manager's estimates of each dog's
suitability for disaster search and rescue. Not all dogs are suitable; it is neither prudent nor
kind to attempt to train an unfit dog for disaster search and rescue.
The Williston Fire Department, all volunteers, has had a K9 unit since 2001. In 2007,
it joined forces with Marion County and formed the North Central Florida Interagency
Search Team. They have seven handler/dog partnerships certified for search and rescue
missions. Not all search missions are disaster related, nor are all dogs disaster search
trained. K-9 teams frequently search large areas: urban, suburban, rural, or wilderness.
Specialized K-9 pairs train for avalanche search; some specialize in trailing and tracking,
discriminating against all other scents than the one gained usually from a target's clothing;
others train for water searches; and some train for human remains detection. Some
handlers and dogs train in multiple categories. A few teams train to search disaster sites:
hurricane or tornado aftermath, flooded towns or city regions, earthquake debris, and
bombed or fallen buildings. Often handlers and dogs that excel in other categories train for
disaster search.
The most common mission is Area Search. Children go missing, disoriented elderly
wander away, and hikers or hunters get lost in the forest. Responding Fire and Rescue
authorities launch search and rescue missions, and available K-9 units mobilize to assist.
Why dogs? Dogs' keen sense of smell, ten-thousand times more sensitive than human
noses, is the key. Area search dogs work off the leash, and can cover large areas in a short
time. For example, a SAR anecdote relates a training incident wherein it took human
teams armed with the latest electronic search equipment four hours to locate a simulated
target buried three feet deep by disaster rubble. When it was the dog's turn, they
pinpointed the target in five minutes.
SAR dog handling is not for the faint-hearted, the couch potato, or the dilettante.
Handlers must be fit, and self-disciplined. A handler's principle attribute is commitment.
The skills handlers acquire are myriad: for example, first aid (both human and
canine), CPR, and land navigation. They equip themselves to self-sustain for short
periods-two or three day-under field conditions. Search sites can be dangerous, for
example, wilderness, swift water, and extreme weather. Disaster sites have added risks:
unstable terrain, hazardous materials, fire, secondary explosions, after shocks. Working
safely amidst these risks demands more specialized training. Preparing one's self and a
canine partner takes at least a year, and as much as two years before being ready to join
a team in the field. This means two or three training sessions with your dog every week,
weekend training sessions with or without your partner, overnight travel to training sites
and examination centers. Both the handler and the dog are tested: written tests and field
tests. (No, only the handler need know how to write.) All responsible K-9 units require
certification before a handler/dog partnership participates in missions. There is no national
certification program or agency. FEMA established the Urban Search and Rescue system
(US&R) in 1989. The program relies heavily on canines, and the agency established
training requirements and certification tests for its 28 nationally dispersed US&R Task
Forces'.canines. (Two of the task forces are located in Florida.) Today, the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) and FEMAjointly manage the program. Although DHS/FEMA
only certifies their own dog teams, local K-9 units often adapt their requirements for their
needs. Additionally, nationally recognized organizations offer training and certification
programs in many SAR categories. Notable among them is the National Association
for Search and Rescue (NASAR). The North Central Florida Interagency Search Team
is a member of NASAR. There is a tight network of communications and working
relationships among both the nation's local K-9 units and the training and certification
groi;s.' Standardized training arid ei'tification is an unwritten goal among the players.
Handlers pay for their progress with volunteered time and personal money. They

spend hundreds of hour and thousands of dollars meeting training and certification
requirements, and equipping themselves and their dogs. This is only the first step. Training
and recertification continue throughout the active life of a partnership, in a single word:
commitment.
Not surprisingly, most SAR dogs come from hunting, herding, or sporting breeds, dogs
that hunt with their nose rather than their eyes. A few examples are, Golden Retrievers,
Dobermans, Border Collies, German Shepherds, and Australian Shepherds, but there are
exceptions.
Saturday morning Judy Thigpin evaluated nine dogs and their human partners for
disaster Search and Rescue potential. The focus was mainly, but not solely, on the dogs.
Judy is one of Williston/Marion County K-P unit's certified SAR technicians, and their
certified evaluator, She handles two German Shepherds; one is NASAR certified in
multiple categories; the second is a young dog Judy is training. Judy and her helpers
observed the potential SAR dogs in three phases:
Social behavior: Disaster sites are alive with very active strangers, both human and
canine. A dog inust not act aggressively toward humans or other dogs.
Nerve Strength: Disaster'sites are noisy, littered with rubble and debris, moving
machinery; they are smelly, and in general borderline chaotic. A dog must
not show stress behavior or be unwilling to enter and work in a disaster site
environment.
Drive and Motivation: Dogs exhibit six drives: pack or social, play, food, prey,
hunt, and defense. High and balanced drive among the first five is vital for training
SAR dogs; a high defense drive can be problematic.
Saturday morning, obstacles littered the Williston Fire Department.grounds and
garage simulating a micro-disaster site. Throughout the morning, the dogs crossed
strange terrain that felt odd and sometimes sounded odd too, climbed onto and leaped
from tabletops. entered unfamiliar rooms, climbed darkened staircases, crawled
through tunnels, balanced on teetering planks, and explored debris piles. idfinstrial
strength vacuum cleaners roared in their ears. Their handlers abandoned them.
Strangers took command of them. Strange dogs intruded into their territory. In the
afternoon Judy, her entourage, the nine dogs and their handlers and helpers deployed
to a nearby field where they played with familiar toys, and hunted them when the
evaluators hid them. The dogs, not concerned with why, simply did what was asked of
them to the best of their abilities.
Danny Wallace is a Williston Fire Department Firefighter. He is a volunteer.
He has fought fires with volunteer fire departments for more than thirty years. He
is the Mission Coordinator for Williston's K-9 group. He is also its biggest fan and
representative. Danny spoke of the unit's history. He told gratefully of the support the
Fire Department and the Williston's City Council members have given consistently
since the K-9 unit's beginning. Mostly he praised the men, women, and dogs that are
the unit. Danny summed up their commitment.
"It can't be a hobby," he said. "It's got to be a passion."
