HE COUNTY PAPER* EST. 192


Festival Provides "All Things Nutty" City, Union Agree on

Police Wages and Raises


The Central Florida Peanut Festival in Williston's Linear
Park was a safe haven from the heavy rains that have been
moving through North Central Florida.
For the 3,000-plus who attended, there was plenty to do for
the celebration of "all things nutty." There were rides, crafts,
music, information booths, a petting zoo, a rodeo and most of
all the little peanut royal family.
What is refreshing about this festival, besides all the delicious
free grilled peanut sandwiches one can eat, is the fact that the
revenue generated from the event will go directly back to the
cornmuniht. The event is into its 16th year and is organized and
sponsored by the Williston Area Chamber of Commerce.
The attendance numbers were low in the morning, but as the
day progressed, the numbers increased, said Christy Eveland,
the chamber's treasurer who was working the photo booth for
all interested in getting their photo next to the giant life-sized
"Peanut Grand Marshall."
Mary Kline, the executive
director for the chamber, said

peanut museum was a favorite attraction that provided "some
really terrific recipes," and this was the first year organizers
were able to get the traveling museum to stop in Williston.
"This year we combined the peanut festival with the
business expo," Kline said.
Seated behind a fortress of peanut bags, Bill Hamer said
that the Williston Peanut is "basically a buying point," which
in turn helps the 35 or more area peanut farms to sell their:
product.
The winners of the little peanut king and queen contests
were announced after the contestants showcased their talents
to a warm and receptive crowd." -
Williston's former postmaster Carla Reihl did an
outstanding job as the contest's M.C. and introduced the
new Peanut King, Dalton Vonderstrasse, 5, and the Peanut
Queen, Savanna McCoy, 5. Dalton's younger sister, Maci
Vonderstrasse, was the winner of the Baby Peanut Queen, and
the Baby Peanut King winner was Landon Gruenwold.
"Everything you have here is basically community
participation," said Reihl.

A tentative agreement on the police collective
bargaining agreement was announced at Monday
night's Chiefland City Commission meeting. The
agreement on wages was an across-the-board
increase of 6% for police officers and a flat
$1,600 raise for dispatchers effective October .1
(retroactively). The city and the police department
agreed to a 3-year term, however, the wage increase
is only effective in the 2007-08 fiscal year. The
city and the department will renegotiate wages for
upcoming fiscal years.
In other city business, commissioners voted
unanimously to continue to bill those involved in
traffic accidents for services the police department
and cities provide. The fees charged by department
to those involved in a traffic accident are based
on the actual costs incurred, which is about $250,
on average. The city has received approximately
$12,000 since the cost recovery program began. A
ordinance for a similar cost recovery program was
passed in Williston, but rescinded in their last town
council meeting due to citizen protest.
Commissioners also voted to change the language
of their employee policy manual on the longevity
incentive. City employees are given a 1/10th of 1
percent of their salary bonus after 20 years. Teresa
Barron made the motion to have this incentive apply
to new hires rather than probationary employees.
Two employees eligible for the bonus had been
affected by the language because they has been
promoted and were on probation when they reached
the longevity goal. Rollin Hudson seconded the
motion, which passed unanimously.
Earlier in the meeting, Chiefland city resident
Virginia Chandler asked to address commissioners
about Wal Mart's failure to fly their United States
flag at half-mast on Sept, 11, Patriot's Day.
Chandler told commissioners she spoke to a greeter
and the store manager, and later the corporate office
in Arkansas to no avail. The flag was not lowered
that day. Commissioners voted to write a letter to
Corporate Wal Mart admonishing them.on their flag
policy. The motion was passed unanimously.


Cedar Key Girl Killed in Auto Accident Two Men Arrested after


By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER


Tragedy struck Cedar Key
School when eight-year-old
Amber Rand was killed in
an auto accident on Oct.
1 at about 3:30 p.m. The
accident occurred about eight
miles north of Cedar Key
on County Road 345 when
the truck she was seated in
overturned, according to the
testimony of a bread truck
driver.
Rand was a fourth-grader


at CKS and died as a result of
fatal head injuries.
The girl's mother, Nicole
Smart, 25, was taken to
Shands at the University
of Florida as were her two
children, Joan Smart, 5, and
Andrew Smart, 1.
The state troopers on the
scene have not yet determined
if the passengers had been
wearing their seatbelts when
the truck overturned. The
driver of the bread truck,
William Redwine, said that
when he felt the bump on the


left side of his truck, the
next thing he noticed was
the truck overturning onto
the road's east shoulder.
At CKS, in an effort to
comfort those at the small
tightly knit community
school of 200 students,
Superintendent Cliff Norris
called in extra counselors
to deal with the tragedy.
Parents accompanied
their children to school the
next day, and the auditorium
was used as a counseling
area throughout the day.


Williston Rescinds Accident Cost Ordinance
By DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
Williston Ordinance 570, invoking a $175 fee on all drivers involved in any automobile
accident that Williston police investigate, had a short life after its Sept. 27 approval. Two
weeks later, the city council rescinded the ordinance with a 3-2 split vote.
The ordinance.intended to provide the city a way to recover costs for police officers
attending vehicle accidents. At the time of approval, a method to bill the costs had not been
decided. Debra Jones, council president, and Councilman Cal Byrd cast the dissenting votes.
A discussion, called for by Jones, regarding billing methods became a debate on the merits
of the ordinance. At least three concerned citizens voiced their displeasure with the ordinance,
one passionately. The thorny issue of billing all drivers regardless of fault was central to the
discussion.
Jones explained the ordinance's intention, offering that many of the drivers involved in
accidents within the city's jurisdiction were not residents of Williston. They pay no taxes to the
city, yet they and their insurance companies rely on and benefit from the city's police reports
in post-accident proceedings.
Both Jones and Mayor Gerald Hethcoat said they had originally expected the ordinance
to address charging the at-fault driver only, but City Attorney Norm Fugate's research
suggested the ordinance must treat all drivers involved in an accident equally. Subsequently,
the approved ordinance reflected his finding. Fugate acknowledged their comments and further
explained the charge is a usage fee and must be applied to all drivers involved.
Councilman James W. Cason moved to rescind Ordinance 570. Seconded, his motion
carried. Despite its rescinding, discussion continued briefly following the vote with comments
coming from the audience as well as the council members.
"It was before its time," said Jones defending the ordinance, and she prophesied that towns
and cities throughout Florida and elsewhere soon would be charging similar fees for city
employees' services. Police Chief Davis stated that other Florida cities, including neighboring
Chiefland, were already billing drivers a usage fee for police services attending an accident.
In other business, Jerry Robinson, council vice president, moved to refund electric utility
security deposits after three years of on-time bill payments and to forgive one late payment.
Presently, security deposits are refunded after five years, and the ordinance forgives nothing.
Though the motion carried, the ordinance governing security deposit refunds requires
rewriting, the usual two readings and the city council's approval before the change can occur.


High-speed Chase


By LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER


Two St. Petersburg men were arrested late Tuesday
afternoon after Levy County deputies engaged the
drivers of a stolen car in a high-speed chase that
ended in a single-car crash on Northeast Highway 27
Alternate.
James, Floyd McIntosh and James Oliver Johnson
were charged with grand theft auto and resisting
arrest without violence. McIntosh also was charged
with fleeing and attempting to elude, aggravated
assault on a police officer, resisting without violence,
possession of a firearm by convicted felon, and
driving with a suspended license, according to a Levy
County Sheriff's Office news release.
The incident began when deputy Kevin Kinik
spotted the stolen 1994 Mercury going south on
Highway 27 Alternate near Bronson. When Kinik,
with his K-9 partner Rossi in his car, pursued the
stolen Mercury, the driver tried to ram the deputy,
according to the news release. Kinik had to take
evasive action to avoid a dangerous collision.
After the near-collision, the defendants raced south
in the northbound lane, then slammed on the brakes
and drove in reverse at 45 mph. The driver tried to
spin the car around, lost control, went off the road
and got stuck in the sandy shoulder, in the 12700
block of Northeast Highway 27 Alternate, Lt. Evan
Sullivan, spokesman for the Levy County Sheriff's
Office, said.
Both men jumped out of the car and ran away,
ignoring Kinik's orders to stop. McIntosh, the driver,
was apprehended near the crash site by sheriff's
investigator Mike Bell, who arrived in another car.
K-9 Rossi apprehended Johnson, who was taken to
Nature Coast Regional Hospital and treated for K-9
bites. He was released Tuesday, according to the news
release.
A loaded handgun was recovered under the driver's
seat, Sullivan said.
The Mercury, stolen from the Chiefland area, was
the only car damaged in the pursuit.
Both defendants have criminal records, according
to the news release. Johnson was convicted of auto
theft on May 16, 2005. McIntosh was convicted for
auto theft and released from prison July 28, 2007.

NEW(T) IDEAS


By Cal Thomas
Tribune Media Services

As I listen to the presidential candidates speak and engage
in what passes for debate these days, it appears that most,
if not all of them are simply talking about improving the old government model,
rather than boldly proclaiming a new one. Carmakers, if they want to sell cars,
produce "new and improved" models, not remakes of previous ones. So why do
politicians continue to rely on a Model T version of government when it's outmoded
and unfit for modern life?
Presidential candidates should speak about what has worked in the past and
could work again. The candidates at least the Republican ones, if they remember
what Republicans are supposed to stand for should be talking about freedom
from dependency and a return to self-sufficiency. Government doesn't need to be
reformed under the present system; it needs to be transformed under a new one.
Last week, a small group of fellow journalists and I had breakfast with former
Speaker Newt Gingrich. Talk about a man who has learned from his mistakes!
Gingrich now heads American Solutions for Winning the Future, an organization
whose Website describes it as "a unique nonpartisan organization designed to rise
above traditional gridlocked partisanship, to provide real, significant solutions to
the most important issues facing our country." It is thrilling to sit and listen to his
ideas that are no longer based on partisan posturing and strategies to win the next
election, but on proposals that would work and benefit all Americans, regardless of
party affiliation.
"We need a new American dialogue that focuses on evidence and data and sorts
out what works and what fails," he says. "Then we need to migrate government
policies and government bureaucracies away from failure and toward success."
Gingrich calls government at all levels "incompetent" and makes no distinction
about which party is running it.
Who could argue with that? Only those with a vested interest in the status quo,
lobbyists and polarizers, forexample.
Is there anyone who is satisfied with the way large and ever-growing,
bureaucratic, impersonal government works? No matter who's running it,
government doesn't work precisely because of its aforementioned traits. It costs
more and delivers less than ever before. It has created a dependency culture that
prevents not helps some of the disadvantaged from achieving their dreams, if
they have any after relying too much and for far too long on government.
"The solutions we need are bigger than the current political process can create,"
says Gingrich. Who can credibly disagree? And if you do disagree, can you give an
exa mle,'of wha.naj.or problems government is fixing? Social Security? Education?
Hlea il care?' a
"'\e need ai educational dialogue before ha\ e a political debate," he says.
Yes, we do, but who will give it to us if the presidential candidates are about
patching and mending the current system? How many people understand basic
economics and the principals behind capitalism? Who understands the history of
their own country and the ideas that founded and have sustained it through domestic
and foreign challenges? Are there politicians who will lead us to what we need
rather than indulge us in the silliness of what we want, like our obsession with O.J.
Simpson and other members of the cult of the depraved?
Television increasingly serves up crime and slime. These are not the things of the
mind, but of the gut and the groin.
The public wants real change, says Gingrich, but the politicians perhaps fearful
of organized groups that could turn the image of a saint into one of a deviant won't
give it to them. The desire for change is not the exclusive property of conservative,
white Republicans. Gingrich cites polls that show the yearning for change extends
across all racial, ethnic and political groups.
Gingrich is trying to raise $30 million in three weeks to see if he should run
for president. Whether he does, or not, his ideas are worth considering. They are
precisely what the country needs.
Candidates should be willing to talk about them and the rest of us ought to pay
attention. We might if we are presented with something that actually works instead
of the same old snake oil, which never does.
Citizenship is not about what government can do for us, but what we can do for
ourselves. That is an old model that increasingly looks like a classic car. And it is
far more attractive and road-tested than the current government jalopy, which is
ready for the junk heap.

DEAR EDITOR:

A man is born into this world with a name. He leaves this world with only that name
on a stone. It is for some men, all that they have. It is precious.
As a defendant in Yankeetown's most recent frivolous lawsuit-damage has been
done and indecent, unnecessary liberties have been taken with mine.
It is impossible not to think of my father, he was the best man in the world. All those,
without exception, who knew and worked with him (they numbered in the many,
many thousands), would agree.
The name meant so very much to.him for he and other generations shared it and he
gave it to me.
Today is the first time since his death, five years ago; that I am glad he is not here.
Some men seem to take their actions and the effect of those actions lightly with no
concern.
We weren't blessed with life to do so.

Pretend To Be All That

You Can Be

By Ann Coulter
Universal Press Syndicate

Not content to wait for my book to come out, Senate Democrats are
demanding a censure resolution against Rush Limbaugh. Ah, the memories ...
In my experience, having prominent Democrats censure you on the Senate
floor is the equivalent of 50 book signing. Or being put on the cover of The
New York Times magazine 20 years ago when people still read The New York
Times magazine. They should rename Senate censure resolutions "Harry Reid's
Book Club."
Liberals are hopping mad because Rush Limbaugh referred to phony soldiers
as "phony soldiers." They claim he was accusing all Democrats in the military
of being "phony."
True, all Democrats in the military are not phony soldiers, but all phony
soldiers seem to be Democrats.
If we are to believe the self-descriptions of callers to talk radio and the typical
soldier interviewed on MSNBC, the military is fairly bristling with Moveon.org
types.
The reality is quite the opposite. While liberals have managed to worm
themselves into every important institution in America, from the public schools
to the CIA to charitable foundations, they are shamefully absent from the
military.
As noted in that great book that came out this week, "If Democrats Had Any
Brains, They'd Be Republicans":
"According to a Military Times survey taken in September 2004, active-duty
military personnel preferred President Bush to Kerry by about 73 percent to
18 percent. Sixty percent describe themselves as Republican and less than 10
percent call themselves Democrat (the same 10 percent that MSNBC has on its
speed-dial). Even among the veterans, Republicans outnumber Democrats 46
percent to 22 percent."
So there aren't a lot of anti-war military types for the media to turn into this
month's "It Girl." (If conservatives ran the media, there would be a constant
stream of government employees admitting to sloth and incompetence, welfare
recipients admitting to being welfare cheats and public schoolteachers who
support school vouchers.) Sometimes liberals get desperate and have to concoct
Tawana Brawley veterans.
In addition to famous fake soldiers promoted by the anti-war crowd, like Jesse
MacBeth and "Winter Soldier" Al Hubbard, even liberals with actual military
experience are constantly being caught in the middle of some liberal hoax.
Al Gore endlessly bragged to the media about his service in Vietnam. "I took
my turn regularly on the perimeter in these little firebases out in the boonies.
Something would move, we'd fire first and ask questions later," he told Vanity
Fair. And then we found out Gore had a personal bodyguard in Vietnam, the
most dangerous \veapoiih e carried was a typewriter, andie left aftrtiee fi
months. Although to his credit, Gore did not put in for a Purple Heart for the
carpal tunnel syndrome he got from all that typing.
Speaking of which, John Kerry claimed to be a valiant, Purple Heart-
deserving Vietnam veteran, who spent Christmas 1968 in Cambodia -- until
he ran for president and more than 280 Swift Boat Veterans called him a liar.
We've been waiting more than 20 months for Kerry to make good on his "Meet
the Press" pledge to sign form 180, which would allow the military to release
his records.
Then there was Bill Burkett, who gave CBS the phony National Guard
documents; Scott Thomas Beauchamp, The New Republic's fantasist anti-
war "Baghdad Diarist"; and Max Cleland, whose injuries were repeatedly and
falsely described as a result of enemy fire.
Liberals will even turn a war hero like Pat Tillman into an anti-war cause
celebre posthumously -- so he can't disagree. Tillman died in a friendly fire
incident that occurred -- unlike Max Cleland's accident -- during actual combat
with the enemy.
Because they are screaming, hysterical women, liberals treat friendly fire like
a drunk driving accident. But friendly fire has been a part of war from time
immemorial.
Liberals have an insane, litigious view of the military; (BEGIN ITALS)
There's been an accident in warfare, let's sue! (END ITALS) It's as mad as the
line from "Dr. Strangelove": "Gentlemen! No fighting in the War Room!" Golly
jeepers, accidents can't happen in a war!
Contrary to the insinuations of his family, we don't know what Pat Tillman
would say about the war he volunteered for, but we do know that he was a
patriot until death. And we know what other patriots have said about friendly
fire during a war.
In his book "Faith of My Fathers," John McCain describes how demoralized
American prisoners of war in Vietnam were when they didn't hear any bombing
for years. Finally, after a long bombing halt, Nixon renewed aerial bombing of
North Vietnam in December 1972.
Our bombers couldn't know with precision where the enemy was holding (and
torturing) our troops. McCain and the rest of those POWs could easily have
been hit and killed by an American bomb.
But the POWs weren't denouncing the U.S. military for risking their lives with
"friendly fire." They weren't crying Mommy, investigate this! Get me a trial
lawyer! If their camp had been hit by American bombs, it would have been as
the POWs were shouting: "God bless President Nixon!"
That's from their own mouths; that's what's in their hearts. Friendly fire -- to
a nation that hasn't lost its wits -- is part of waging war.
If Democrats don't want to hear about "phony soldiers," maybe they should
stop trying to edify us with these bathos-laden hoaxes.

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs., Oct. 4, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Today was visitor day. We had
visitors from many places and we enjoy everyone who
comes to visit the museum. We have visitors from all over,
some just come to see the building. We have small signs on
SR 27A and CR 339, and we often laugh when someone
comes up expecting a small building.
The "Pine Tree Log Cabin" was taken out and Goldie will
hem it at home. We are now planning the room for the Quilt
show in December It takes time to get it all together, and
many crafts and quilts have been furnished. Soon it will all
come together.
The Ladies Church Fellowship Luncheon will be held
Nov. 6 here at the museum. This get together has been
going on a long time, and it's so great to see old friends and
make new ones. More about it later.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday, got the mowing
done, planted collards, carrots, broccoli and beets in the
flowerbeds. The pumpkin vines are making frui,t and then it
rained that makes everything look great, Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was a table full of meatloaf, okra fritters, rice, lots
of salad, a table full of desserts and so much more. There
Were 30 present.

Miss Honey Says...

Monday, Oct. 8, 6:30 a.m. Good morning! Isn't it great to wake
up still in the land of the living surrounded by love? Yes, puppy
love! But I do know they love me without any reservations. Uh
huh, do too! And they wag their trail, not their tongue.
Janice and I went yard saleing Saturday morning and stopped at
a house in Archer, and I got a surprise. The lady who lived there was one of my
carriers who delivered the Gainesville Sun back in the 60s, yes, Helen. it was
great to see you again. You never know who or what you'll find at a yard sale!
It's sort of like a treasure hunt, you find things you want, but don't need, buy and
never use. But it's a lot of fun and a great way to see old friends and make new
ones.
SWell I believe I've said enough, so I'll make this short and sweet and I'll be
back next week Lord's willing, and yes, if I survive all the yard sales! Uh huh,
Janie and I make our rounds and looked to see if there is anything we can't do
without. And me? I love to sit and look at old cookbooks, so I buy a lot of them,
but only to look at. I do believe I've forgotten how to cook. Ha, ha, never. I've
been doing that since I was fourteen years old and mama was working at the
Cedar Mill in Crystal River. I'm not saying I'm a good cook, just been doing my
best for 63 years and still trying. We,ll until next week I'll shut up, get up, and


take this to the Journal.


Until then may the Lord take a liking to you.
God Bless, Miss Honey

Do You Have Medicare Part D Extra

Help?

The Department of Health and Human Services (Medicare) and Social Security are
currently sending out letters (current letters are on grey paper) to most of the Extra Help
beneficiaries. These letters require a response and come with a Social Security application
to fill out for Extra Help (like your original application). Please fill out and return
immediately in the prepaid envelope. These letters are stating that you must re-qualify for
Extra Help in order to keep it for 2008. If you do not mail in the application or call Social
Security at (800) 772-1213 to re-apply over the phone, you will lose you Extra Help for
Medicare Part D in 2008.
Come see SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders), a volunteer program with
the FL Dept of Elder Affairs, if you have questions about the Extra Help letters or need an
application.
Don't forget that the Open Enrollment Period for Medicare Part D: Prescription Drug
Plans will be Nov. 15 to December 31. Come to one of our SHINE sites to have a
volunteer assist you in finding the best plan for you for 2008. Plans will be changing their
premium costs, deductibles, and formulae (drug pricing structure) in 2008. There may also
be many new plans that may work better for you.
SHINE Medicare one-on-one counseling is free and confidential at the following sites:

* Wednesday, Oct. 17, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Chiefland Sr. Center Health Fair & Chili Cook-off

* Wednesday, Oct. 24, 10 a.m. to,12 p.m., AF Knotts,Libraryl Ya4keetown, 10 a.nto, 2,-,
p.m. renton rary 0Q p.m. tbo0 4pfros4t Libra

If you have enrolled in a Part D Prescription Drug Plan, you can still apply for Extra
Help. If you have not enrolled in a Part D Prescription Drug Plan as yet, you may be
eligible for Extra Help in paying for the plan premium, deductible and drugs without
penalty. You must meet the following criteria to qualify:

Single Income is $15,315 or less, assets total $11,710 or less
Couple Income is $20,535 or less, assets total $23,410 or less

Assets do hot count your home or your vehicles. They do count all your cash in the bank,
CDs, Stocks, Bonds, cash value on your life insurance or burial policies, and the fair market
price of any additional property. Ask SHINE for details and an application!
The pharmaceuticals have begun to ease up on their Part D restrictions on free drugs.
This will be on a case by case basis. When you reach the 'Gap' contact SHINE to see if you
qualify for the PAPs. If you received free drugs previously from the drug companies, call
them and see if you can still qualify.
Call 1-800-262-2243 (Elder HelpLine) if you need directions to a site or are unable to
visit one. A volunteer will return your call.

I remember the time one of mom's dates drove us to
.the Red Lobster in his sporty new Jaguar. Yee-doggy,
you talk about the Clampetts come to town! We hadn't
felt so highfalutin' since momma squealed rubber in
her yellow Vega out back of the Tasty Freeze.
I couldn't help but think it would've been nice if
mom could stop biting her nails long enough to enjoy
it though, at least while it lasted. She just kept looking
back and narrowing her eyes at me and my six- year-
old little brother Heath.
Maybe it was our previous track record that made
her a mite jumpy. Admittedly, we had run off her last
three dates before they even made it past the front
stoop. I guess we hadn't really adjusted well to the kid-
friendly Mr. Sensitive act so popular with the 'players'
back in the 70's.
"Who knows," I thought, "Maybe this new fellow is
different?" He had been one of the few to ever invite
us along. More than likely though, he just had more
stamina than brains. Probably a politician I surmised.
One thing was obvious, he hadn't done his
homework. Word on the street was, despite being
prettier than a young Ellie May, Guy Ann had a pair
of kids wilder than two lop-eared monkeys raised in a
hollow stump.
Just seeing mom so jittery made me feel plumb
awful, so I whomped Heath in the back of the head.
The little booger looked up from under his cotton-
white mop top and gritted what baby teeth he had left.
"Wha'd' cha do that for?" he demanded, and stabbed
at me with his ink pen. After a short scuffle I was
forced to tell momma on him. With that he spit on me
and went back to writing his name on that fancy cow
smelling seat.
I was glad Heath had found something to occupy his
time. If I could keep him busy, maybe we wouldn't run
off mom's new fellow until after we'd had a chance to
chew a heap of that fancy ocean food he'd be springing
for. I winked at momma to let her know I had it all
under control.
We did pretty well the first four or five minutes in
the restaurant, but after the sugar rush kicked in from
the candy I'd stolen from the bowl up front, Heath and
I commenced bouncing around like two rookies in the
Pro-Rodeo bull riding finals. Heath was closest, so
momma whacked him one good.
The little hellion merely scrunched his nose up and
slid underneath the table and off towards the restroom

Melvin (Sarge) Durden of Archer passed away on Oct.
3, 2007 after a miraculous battle with cancer. He far

Melanie; brothers, Gearry Durden, Terry Durden
and Jimmy Durden; mother, Leona Durden; and 14
grandchildren.

9, at Laurel Hill Cemetery in Archer, with Pastor

following the service atthe Family Life Church of God
in Archer.
Knauff Funeral Home in Williston was in charge of

LAURIE HUDSON KENDAL
Laurie Hudson Kendal died on Oct.7, 2007 at Shands
Hospital in Gainesville. She was 79.
A native of Chiefland, Mrs. Kendall was a
homemaker. She enjoyed fishing and sewing. She is
survived by her husband, James Kendall of Chiefland,
daughter and son-in- law, Connie and Joey Metcalf of
Tallahassee, grandchildren Melissa and Mark Giddens
of Tallahassee, great grandchildren, Emily Giddens of
Louisiana, and Jayden and Chayse Hunt of Tallahassee.
Services were Wednesday at Hiers-Baxley Chapel
in Chiefland. Burial was in .Pine Grove Cemetery in
Trenton.
Arrangements were under the care of Hiers-Baxley
Funeral Services, Chiefland.

CECIL DAVID OSTEEN
Cecil David Osteen of Williston passed away Sun.
Oct. 7 following a short illness. He was 74. Born in
Dixie County he came to Williston 35 years ago from
Gainesville. He was an active member of the Church of
God in Williston. He was a school bus driver and also
worked in food service at Williston High School.
He was preceded in death by his father, James
Osteen, a daughter Cynthia and a brother George.
He leaves his wife, Janice; two sons, David (Debra)
OSteen and Keith (Tracie) OSteen both of Williston;
one brother, Robert Osteen of Cross City; two sisters,
Irene Sparks and Betty Goodman, both of Cross City;
his mother, Hattie Osteen of Cross City; and three
grandchildren, Gabrielle, Kelby and Garin.
Funeral services were held Sat., Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. at
the Williston Church of God. Visitation was held Fri.,
Oct. 12, at the church from 6 to 8 p.m.
Knauff Funeral Home, Williston was in charge of the
arrangements.


before I could trip him or anything. "I gotta go pee-
pee," he called out loudly across the restaurant. It was
totally embarrassing, so I yelled back, "Well-don't
eat the toilet mints you little munchkin!" Momma
whomped me with her menu, then quickly turned to
force a weak smile at her candidate, as if nothing had
happened.
A few minutes later the place was abuzz with
Heath's return. He was zipping from table to table
with his fly busted wide open, doing his best "Hulk"
imitation. Then after he'd given their food a hungry
stare he'd call out, "Munchkin Man!" It was like some
sort of three foot tall super hero lounge lizard was
working the room.
Yep, that was our last ride in a Jaguar. Poor ole'
momma, she never even got past the first stop on the
campaign trail. I reckon I should shoulder some of the
blame, but it isn't like I didn't try to keep Heath busy.
I guess there are seasons in our lives where we're
called to make sacrifices, like momma, raising two
kids as a single parent. She could've pawned us off on
others to pursue her own happiness, like has become
so prevalent.in today's society, but she didn't. She put
herself aside and stood up to her responsibilities like
a parent should. I believe that's commendable before
God. Thanks, mom.
Many times I have to remind myself that if reaching
my dreams has to come at the expense of my family or
friends then I probably have my sights set on the wrong
mark. What if God's ultimate plan for our lives is that
we be willing to lay down our dreams to help someone
else reach theirs? Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
KJV It's just a thought.
Instead of getting bitter over the sacrifices we've
made in this life and fretting over what might have
been, maybe we should try giving thanks for being
given the opportunity to be more like our Savior. Jesus
laid down everything for us.
But anyway- Who knows? With a campaign strategy
like that maybe one day we'll have one of those
highfalutin' Jaguar chariots waiting on us when we get
to heaven! I can almost see momma squealing rubber
out back of those pearly gates now.

enjoying the plentiful and creatively prepared peanuts. There was also some great entertainment under the
pavilion, where the king and queen contests were big hits.
The 2007 Baby Peanut Queen is Maci Vonderstrasse, and the 2007 Baby Peanut King is Landon Grueenwald.
This year's Little Miss Peanut Queen is Savannah Elizabeth McCoy, and this year's Little Peanut King is

recognizes Future


Farmers of America

FFA team members (from left)
Raina Martinez, Hillary Coram,

in the nursery and landscape
division. The team will represent
the state of Florida at the
National FFA Convention Oct. 22
to 26 in Indianapolis.

"One of our educational goals here in Levy County is to provide our students with as
many leadership opportunities as possible," said Assistant Superintendent Jeff Edison in
recognizing the county's outstanding state winners of the Future Farmers of America at the
Levy County School Board meeting last week.
One of the greatest organizations in providing these leadership opportunities, Edison said,
is the FFA.
"Here in Levy County we are blessed with a strong tradition of success," said Edison,
adding that award-winning teams are moving on to the national level of competition in just a
few weeks.
Katie Jones, a five-year adviser with the FFA program at Chiefland High School,
introduced Seth Sache as a "young man who has exemplified success." Sache has been
recognized as a state finalist and won the proficiency award based on his experience outside
the classroom in agriculture.
Jones acknowledged Sache's diverse expertise in forest production, beef production,
forestry, outdoor recreation, wildlife management, and fruit, vegetable and crop production.
This past year Sache was recognized as the state winner in forest production, said Jones.
"But more importantly, he was one of four students recognized as a State Star Farmer
finalist," Jones said. This award is one of the "oldest and most prestigious awards" in the
state.
Next at the podium, Heather Rucker, an instructor at Chiefland Middle School, introduced
FFA winners Shelly Mills and Heather Bason.
"They both competed as a team in the ornamental horticulture production division," said
Rucker, explaining that,because the girls are only in middle school they will not be able to
go on to the national competition but have won state honors in their division.
Chris Wilder, Williston High School horticulture teacher, introduced his success stories.
"First of all I would like to thank the parents," said Wilder while introducing the FFA
winners he has taught.
"These students that you see here today are growing and developing," said Wilder
mentioning that past members are now achieving greatness at the University of Florida.
WHS students Hillary Coram and Brandy Winningham along with UF students Logan
Brooks and Raina Martinez will be traveling to Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 22 to 26 to represent
the state in the nursery and landscape development event.
"These students will have a seven-part practicum on the layers of landscaping and
regional landscaping," said Wilder.
Wilder said the students will not only have "to identify over 120 plants from all over the
country" but also identify the various parts and pieces, "not just the pretty little pictures."
Superintendent Cliff Norris said that he wanted to especially thank the students and
parents who attended the board meeting and confessed that upon visiting the state FFA
convention, "I was so impressed because in every event there were Levy County teams that
were being recognized by the state of Florida."

Williston rotary meeting,
Oct. 9 featured Kendra
Philman. Philman recently
traveled to Peru with
four companions. She
gave an enlightening and
entertaining presentation
of her excursion. Peru,
home to more than 9 million
people, offers tourist a
variety of interesting
cultural.experiences. Cuzco,
capital of Peru, is also know
as the city of gold. When
Spain entered Cuzco Incan
temples were said to be
covered in sheets of gold
which were later melted
down and sent back to
Spain.
A favorite dish and a
cheap source of protein is
"Cuy Chactado", grilled
Guinea Pig, according to


Philman. (She admitted she
was not brave enough to try
this dish.) She also visited
Machu Picchu, the lost city
of the Incas, and the famous
Amazon River.
The Amazon river is the
largest in the world by
volume and averages 25
miles wide, 131 feet deep
and is 4000 miles long. The
Amazon also provides 20
percent of all of the fresh
water entering the earth's
oceans.
Her travels included, of
course, a visit to the Rotary
club located in Iquitos a city
known for its contribution
to the rubber industry. The
Rotary clubs there consist
of three clubs and have 45
active members, of which
four are female.
The clubs are best known
for their clean water
efforts. They provide clean


water through a system of
collection and filtration of
rain water, the most cost
effective method.
The club is also
responsible for a woman's
clinic, an AIDS clinic
and a new school.
Philman concluded
Sher presentation with a
showing of artifacts she
brought back with her.
She was able to buy or
trade for these unique and
fascinating souvenirs: a
hand made paddle used
in navigating the Amazon
river, a blow dart gun used
for hunting for which she
had to trade her watch
and a wooden sculpture
depicting native animals
and flowers.
Kendra Philman currently
resides in Williston and is a
veterinarian at Levy County
Animal Clinic.

Red Devils go Scoreless Lady Red Devils shock


at District Opener

SPORTS EDITOR


The Williston Red Devils were already limping before the start of
the first district contest of the season. With several players sidelined
with injuries, including starting quarterback Devin Timmons, the Red
Devils suffered a 27-0 loss at home to Dunnellon. Along with the game,
Williston lost several more defensive players due to injuries, making the
Red Devils grateful for the two-week rest before their next game.
On their third offensive play of the game, the Red Devils turned the

football over at their own 36-yard line. The young Red Devil defense
held the Tigers from the end zone and forced a field goal attempt by
Williston's Rodrigo Quezada. Quezada was the place kicker for the Red
Devils last season but transferred to Dunnellon to play soccer.
Instead of'kicking the field goal, Quezada took a direct snap from
center and tried to run the ball. He was stopped short of the first-down
marker, and the Red Devils regained possession of the football.
Dunnellon's defense held, and after several possession changes of the
football, the Tigers kicked a 24-yard field goal on the last play of the first
quarter to take a 3-0
lead.

to hold their heads up. "We are a team family, and we will get better. And
I will do a better coaching job," said Baker.
Things should start looking up for the Red Devils during their bye
week. With a young defense taking knocks and gaining experience and
their senior starting quarterback sidelined with injury, the Red Devils can
only improve with the last two games.
The Red Devils will have two weeks to heal injuries and get their
players back on the field. They will travel to West Port on Friday, Oct. 26,

By ANGEL FLOYD
FOR THE JOURNAL

After a tremendous come-from-behind win one night earlier, the Lady Red

in game one as Symone Carter, Adren Norris and Marissa Esposito controlled
the ball the entire way, keeping the lead throughout for the 25-22 win.
Crissy Rawls, Mallary Brochetti, Marcella Snead and Margaret Brown played
a very aggressive game but could not overcome the explosive kill shots by the
Lake City team.
Game two was more of the same from the Lake City team. While holding a
slim 10-7 lead in game two, they outscored the Lady Red Devils 2-1 the rest of
the way to take a 25-15 win in game two.
Carter gave Lake City the early lead in game three before the Lady Red
Devils ended their run with a kill shot. Game three was decided early as several
balls dropped in hitting the floor as the Lady Red Devils were unable to pull off
another comeback.
Game three ended the match with Lake City winning game three, 25-16.
The Lady Red Devils will have to regroup for their next contest versus the

The Lady Tigers jumped out to a big lead early in game one and never looked back as they
won game one, 25-17.
The Lady Tigers appeared to win game two in easy fashion as they held a 22-15 lead. That
was before Lady Eagle Elizabeth Gay unleashed six tremendous serves, two of which dropped in
for aces to bring the Lady Eagles back to within a point at 22-21.
The Tigers quickly called a timeout, and Gay's serve following the timeout was just a bit too
long. The Lady Tigers went on to score the next 2 points giving them a 25-21 win in game two.
The Lady Eagles struggled in game three, despite some excellent floor play and some hard
returns by Jessica Blankenship from setups from Brittany Smith. Angela Massa, Alexis Burns

Levy County Fish

Story


James "Duke" Asbell, grandson Levi Blitch and son-
in-law Abraham Blitch (not shown). Blessed by God
with a bountiful day of fishing and caught these Red
Fish 18". 22". & 24" in Levy County. Levi exhibited
his new found fishing skill that put him on top of the
leader board this trip with a 22" and a 24" catch whichh
closed the trip for the day.
His ne\\ found skill made for stiff competition for his
dad. w\ho couldn't even scratch the board for the day.
What was this new skill you ask? Listening to Angler
Extraordinaire "Duke". "Duke" has been fishing these
waters since he was able to push. Yes. PUSH. You see
back then before they put iced tea in a can and Red
Neck described your trade or profession.
The only way to this vast Fishing Hole NMetropolis
was an old sand road. where you were lucky if you
went a mile without getting stuck. You started your day
before the sun rose. Not to beat the competition to the
bait shop before they ran out. it just took that long to
get there.
If you were lucky you could fish that evening. If not.
as your mouth watered for the sweet taste of the catch,
you made a fire and if anticipation let. you slept under
the stars dreaming of the big one.
The next morning you got up. made your catch.
cleaned it. cooked it and ate it right there on the bank.
No matter what time the sun said it was, it was always
eaten time when you made your catch.
When Levy County decided they were going to put a
hard road in, that taste (and lack ofjobs) lead Duke to
be a part of the crew who cleared the way.
He said to himself,"If that road can take you to
such delight, I wonder where these other roads lead?"
That opened the doors for this poor farm boy to a eye-
opening journey across this nation seeing the wonders
it had to offer as a truck driver.
It was exciting, but not always fun. These days your
routes are decided by the Interstate highways. Back
then it was ice house to ice house to pack with your
shipment. The.roads were hard and only paved around
cities. The trucks were driven by chain not driveshaft.
Drive awhile cut a link, drive awhile cut a link. You
didn't determine your trip in miles but in chains. If you
made good on your trip you bought yourself the world's
first recyclable A/C, model # 245.
There wasn't a lot of research put into this model,
just a lot of pioneer spirit and ingenuity.You see at a top
speed of 45 mph, with both windows rolled down and a
block of ice in a pot on the dash with a rag, you let the
wind blow.
When the ice melted you drank the water to stay cool,
and when that got lukewarm you dabbed your face with
your rag. And by days end well your truck was thirsty,
too. On these trips Duke always has a story to tell about
times past and reminds us all when sharing these stories
with family and friends not to forget to share the most
important story of all.
God's free gift of Grace through Faith in his Son
Jesus Christ. Duke has fished all around this nation and
continent, and what does he crave the most?
That's right, the sweet taste of Red Fish caught in
Levy County. Where is this Fishing Hole Metropolis?
A good angler who wants to keep his hole but wants
others to enjoy the same bliss, only shares a general
area. So get out, explore Levy's treasures and its spoils.
They're waiting for you. Start by finding an old timer
and let them share their experiences.
If you'll listen, you're sure to learn the right way
quicker. Just ask Levi.
