Chiefland Lotto Winner


is Manatee Jiffy Regular
By PAUL KIMPEL
STAFF WRITER

A daily customer from the Chiefland area neighborhood bought the only winning
Lotto ticket in Saturday's $25 million drawing, according to Stoney Smith, owner of
the Manatee Jiffy on State Road 320, which sold the winning ticket.
The store is four miles west of U.S. 19 just past the Chiefland city limit.
Smith, who has spoken with the winner, said that although the winner has claimed
the prize, he is not yet ready for a photo session at the store. Smith said the winner
plans to continue living in greater Chiefland.
"He's a very close neighbor," said Smith. "It's good to see local people win
money."
Smith said that it's not very common for one person to hit such a big pot.
"We're real pleased it was at our store," he added.
Smith said he was not aware of any other winner from Chiefland in the history of
the Florida Lottery.
"There was one in Bronson in 1989, but that's the closest I know of," he said.
Smith has owned the store since 1984 and began selling Lotto tickets from the
very first drawing in January 1988. He said his store will receive approximately
$35,000 for selling the winning ticket, but Smith wasn't focused on'his own good
luck.
"We've been there from the beginning," said Smith. "We're real happy to raise
money for education, and from day one, our store has helped raise part of the $18
billion raised so far."
Approximately 87 percent of students at the University of Florida receive some
Bright Futures aid, which is funded with Lottery money. During the 2005-06 award
year, more than 130,000 Florida students received at least partial,funding for a
Florida Bright Futures Scholarship.
The winning numbers were 5-14-25-30-33-46.
This Wednesday players will be competing for a jackpot estimated at $3 million.

Commission members and
citizens of Levy County. is,
how high will it go?
Proposed increases .
to the so-called "tipping
fees," which have not been
changed since 1989, were
presented by Benny Jerrels,
solid waste director for
Levy County.
After Jerrel's
presentatidh, Commissioner
Nancy Bell had some
concerns.
"I feel like this is a big
hit to people all at one
time," said Bell. "Some of
these increases are almost
doubled, and I think some
are just too high."
In addition to Bell's
comments, numerous
citizens voiced concern on
both sides of the issue.
Several comments
addressed the issue of


people from other counties
driving to Levy County
to dump trash and tires
because the fees in Levy
County are so much lower
than most surrounding
counties. Other citizens
were concerned about the
cost to the average resident,
particularly the elderly
and working poor. Some
citizens said that private
citizens and commercial
trucks from other counties
should be turned away.
Bell also said the county
already has a nasty problem
with people dumping
trash in private and public
forests and on other land
areas, and that if the fees
are raised further, that may
increase such activity.
After a 25-minute
debate, the matter
was tabled for further
discussion.


Tent Revival Prayer Stopped Rain

By PAUL KIMPEL
STAFF WRITER
In addition to the great turnout, last week's Tri-County
Crusade tent revival off U.S. 19 seemed to have a special
blessing from above.
According to Skipper Jones, one of the event's
coordinators, when volunteers first showed up on Saturday
morning to raise the huge canvas tent for the following
day's activities, rain began pouring down on them. Then
they gathered to pray.
"In addition to our usual blessings, we prayed for the
rain to stop," said Jones. "When we began unpacking to
start work, the rain just left. Then as soon as we got the
tent up, a dark cloud came over us and the heavens opened
up. But we had our shelter."
In addition to the great volunteer work by many
citizens, more than 150 decisions for Christ were made,
said Jones.
led people who sought help, according to Jones.
The dynamic messages delivered by evangelist Dr.
Harold Hunter kept many people in attendance, despite the
bad weather, said Jones.
He also said that the special music by top recording
artist Jonathan Scherrill, and music coordinated by Sonny
and Dana Stroud kept the crowd's rapt attention.
"The entire event was a huge success," said Jones. "We
received encouragement to continue our work throughout
North Central Florida."
Jones said that Travis Hudson of the Hardee Town
Baptist Church contributed much to the event's terrific
outcome.
"He's an invaluable resource to the effort," said Jones.
"We couldn't do it without him."

Williston Boys' Golf Advances to

Regionals
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
The Williston High School boys' golf team took third in the District Seven 1A finals at
the University of Florida campus golf course Monday afternoon with a team score of
325 for the five-man team on 18 holes, with the low score dropped.
Coach Alan Bontya said the team will take a day off and then hit the links at
Highlands Country Club in Williston during the week in preparation for regionals
next week.
"There's a lot of work to be done. We didn't shoot as good as we should have
today, but we're really fortunate just to get in," said Bontya.
Team scores are as follows: Jeffery Brannan, 80; Kirby King, 81; Kevin Rice, 81;
Trevor Sanso, 83; andAJ Collins, 90.
.Two Gaines\ ille teams took first and second places for the day with the Trinity
Catholic team at 30 and the Oak Hall team at 312.
The.three high scores for the placement to regionals included Bryan Odiayer, 73,
and Teddy Lausier, 75, both from St. Johns Lutheran, and Matt Gagnon, 75, from St.
Francis.
However, the low score for the day went to a girl named Lauren Hall from Oak
Hall with a phenomenal 71 for the day.
The Williston girls' team will not go to regionals, but team member Trisha Cline
will advance with a low score of 106. The girls' coach, Jason Odom, said the team
did fair, posting a 484 for the day.
The Chiefland boys' team will not advance either with only a two-man team, both
posting scores in the 90s.
The Williston team was not used to the fast greens at Monday's tournament.
"The greens are a lot faster than I thought, a lot faster than in Williston where we
usually play," said Sanso.
Bontya said the wind played a part in the results.
"It's been an up-and-down day," he said. "The wind has really been a key factor."


TEC Auction Helps Handicapped

Riders
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
On a beautiful, crisp Saturday morning, folks began to mosey down to Amik Run
to participate in the second annual Tomorrow's Equestrian Center Charity Action.
This auction will help raise money for North American Riding for the Handicapped
Association and equestrian center, whose mission is to provide recreational and
therapeutic riding to physically, mentally and emotionally disabled people.
The riding programs are for all the disabled, five years old and up, and helps
improve their posture, mobility, flexibility, muscle tone, coordination, balance,
communication skills and self-esteem.
Besides the horse named Jessie, people in the area between Williston and Ocala,
affectionately known as Florida's "horse country;" donated everything from riding
equipment to household goods and even a 2001 Land Rover to be auctioned by Frank
Gray, who donated his time:
"Last year we raised about a quarter of our budget, which was $1,500. So this time
we're hoping to raise about $4,000," said Sandra Arbor, president of the TEC Board
of Directors.
Amik Run has graciously donated the use of its riding facilities to TEC and will
continue to support the organization with all its future endeavors.
"They own the facility, and they donate the use of the facility. And we supply the
feed and the hay for our horses, and they take care of them," said Arbor.
Lori Wolf, co-owner of Amik Run, said that she helps train the TEC horses to
make it a much easier transition for the horses to adjust to the handicapped riders.
"We teach lessons, train their horses, put on shows and teach clinics, stuff like
that," said Wolf.
This is only the second year of the auction, and Arbor would like to see the
Organization continue with the much-needed help it provides the handicapped.
"We need to get a ramp built for our nonambulatory people. So, that's one of our
goals this year," said Arbor. "If anyone is interested in volunteering, I'll be happy to
give them a rider's application," she added.
There is also a scholarship program, said Arbor, adding, "We don't turn anyone
away we let everybody ride."
This year Arbor is hoping to have at least two students go to the state Special
Olympics in Tampa. She said that Levy County does not have any area-qualifying
games, so she will send her student to the Marion County games.

Plum Creek

awards grant to

Williston High

School

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
The Plum Creek Foundation has awarded Williston
High School's conservation class an $8,300 grant, one
of three grants the foundation provided to state schools
this year.
"The Plum Creek Foundation is one that has
provided environmental stewardship, teaches
environmental education and offers a number
of community outreach services," said Assistant
Superintendent Jeff Edison.
The grant will be used to renovate the WHS
horticulture class's greenhouse. Chris Wilder teaches
agriculture education at WHS and said that the money
will be a great help to his program.
"The grant is specifically to be used for conservation
stewardship. Our whole grant is focused around water
or water use. And, the reason we need the money
for the greenhouse is because the greenhouse we are
using right now is much older than what is currently
used. So we were losing a lot of water, and the parts
that I begged, borrowed and used weren't doing the
trick.either so this is going to save a lot of water and
benefit our program," said Wilder.
The grant request was made by the Levy
County School Foundation and will help solidify a
relationship with Plum Creek, whose mission is "to
provide philanthropic contributions to community
organizations to support and improve the general
welfare and quality of life in the communities Plum
Creek serves," as stated in their grant application.
Since 2001, Plum Creek has participated in
conservation transactions on more than 62,000 acres in
Florida and has practiced sustainable forestry on more
than 598,000 acres of forestland in 23 counties.
"I just want to thank Plum Creek for your generosity
and certainly appreciate the foundation," said
Superintendent Cliff Norris. "I'm sure that the money
will be put to good use," he added.

District five-year plan
submitted to school board
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

The School Board of Levy County is in the process
of approving a five-year district facilities work plan
for the 2007-2008 school year,.The board retired
approval ofithe plan prior to its submittal and placed
.' -I1O J. Ii -Ji J'6f.n ii t ji .Ji 'i '- .l'uJ t l )V' V
it on he aigena at Ithe ct. 2 meeting; however, some
of the board members felt it would be in their best
interest to review the document and place it on the
agenda at the next meeting.
Board member Frank Etheridge from District Five,
Williston, made the motion to move the work plan
issue to the next meeting and place it as a consent
agenda item, which received a second from Beth
Davis, District Two, Cedar Key.
Davis along with Paige Brookins, District Four,
Chiefland, wanted to have more time to review the
work plan, and Brookins felt that a full presentation
would be necessary to clarify the work plan outlay.
"I have a lot of questions. I would like a full
discussion, and then I could present my questions,"
said Brookins.
Assistant Superintendent Jeff Davis reminded the
board that the five-year work plan is compiled by
what has only been surveyed.
"The five-year work plan is completely written by
the plant survey," said Davis.
A big problem that Davis identified is not that
what is deemed as finically feasible in meeting the
projected growth of Levy County's schools but what
is not funded from the state or county because of the
limited tax draws of a rural county.
"In a rural district, we can't be financially
feasible," he said.
"It looks completely different from what you've
seen in the past. What they're doing at the Department
of Education is they're wrapping in the five-year work
plan with the educational plant survey, so they're on
one document," Davis said.
Superintendent Cliff Norris said that the work plan
is "driven by the five-year survey."
"The survey, that will be done this spring, you will
be able to have major input on," said Norris, adding,
"By December of '08, the entire state of Florida
will have the same documents, same analysis by the
DOE."
According to Norris, the analysis is a good way to
find out what the DOE is going to fund, and the board
will have to cover the projected infrastructure costs
for the next 20 years. One such costs, for example,

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


OPINION


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2007 Page 3


EDITORIAL

Two weeks ago, different national commentators were introduced to
readers of the Levy County Journal. This week is Thomas Sowell. Thomas.
Sowell was born in North Carolina and grew up in Harlem. As with many others
in his neighborhood, he left home early and did not finish high school. The next
few years were difficult ones, but eventually he joined the Marine Corps and
became a photographer in the Korean War. After leaving the service, Sowell
entered Harvard University, worked a part-time job as a photographer and
studied the science that would become his passion and profession: economics.
After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard University (1958), he went
on to receive his master's in economics from Columbia University (1959) and a
doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago (1968).
In the early '60s, Sowell held jobs as an economist with the Department of
Labor and AT&T. But his real interest was in teaching and scholarship. In
1963, at Douglass College, he began the first of many professorships. His other
teaching assignments include Cornell Univeresity, Rutgers University, Amherst
University, Brandeis University, and the University of California at Los Angeles,
where he taught in the early '70s.
Currently, Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution in Stanford, Calif.


UNTIL

PROVEN

INNOCENT


By Thomas Sowell
Tribune Media Services


Some of the most depressing e-mails received over the past year and a half have
been those that asked why I was worrying myself about three rich white guys at
Duke University.
Neither those three students accused of rape nor the District Attorney who accused
them are the ultimate issue.
If all District Attorneys in this country were like Michael Nifong, the United States
of America would become the world's largest banana republic.
Such levels of corruption in the law itself would make'the American standard
of living impossible. A steady diet of the racial polarization that Nifong promoted
would make it only a matter of time before we would see in America the kind of
violence seen between Sunnis and Shiites in Baghdad.
The "rule of law" is not just a pat phrase. It is the foundation on which everything
else is built.
Nor is "innocent until proven guilty" just a throwaway line. The opposite notion
-- guilty tiitil proven innocent --'is ai tire poisonous import from the totalitarian
world than the tpys with lead paintiimported from China.
"Until Proven Innocent" is the title of a devastating new book by Stuart Taylor
and K.C. Johnson about the rape charges against the Duke lacrosse players -- and
about so many in the media and academia who treated them as guilty until they were
proven innocent.
Even those of us who followed the case from the beginning will learn a lot
more about what went on, both on the surface and behind the scenes, from this
outstanding book.
More important, we will learn some chilling facts about how deep the moral dry
rot goes in some of the fundamental institutions of this nation that we depend on,
including its leading universities and its leading media.
"Until Proven Innocent" also tells, us about one of the forgotten victims of the
Duke rape case -- the African cab driver who cast the first doubt on the indictment,
by saying publicly that one of the accused young men was with him'in his taxi at the
time the rape was supposedly happening.
A flimsy charge against that cab driver from three years earlier was suddenly
resurrected, and District Attorney Michael Nifong had him picked up by the police,
indicted and put on trial -- where he was quickly acquitted by the judge.
Could this country survive as a free nation if every District Attorney used the
power of that office to intimidate any witness whose testimony undermined the
prosecution's case?
How long will we in fact survive as a free nation when our leading universities are
annually graduating thousands of students each, steeped in the notion that you can
decide issues of right and wrong, guilt or innocence, by the "race, class and gender"
of those involved?
That is what a large chunk of the Duke University faculty did, while few of the
other faculty members dared to say anything against them or against the Duke
administration's surrender to the lynch mob atmosphere whipped up on campus.
In much of the media as well,- the students were treated as guilty until proven
innocent, and those who said otherwise were often savaged.
Members of the women's lacrosse team at Duke who expressed their belief that the
male lacrosse players were innocent were viciously attacked in the sports section of
the New York Times.
Nor was that the only place where the guilt of the players was virtually taken for
granted, on either the sports pages of the Times or in other places there or in other
newspapers. However, let me correct a misstatement that I made recently in this
column to the effect that the Times' editorial page gave the same impression as its
news coverage that the accused students were guilty.
An e-mail from the editor of that page says that there was no editorial on that
subject. After a preliminary investigation, I am willing to concede that point and
make this correction. The sports pages, the news pages and the editorial page are
different things.
I only wish that others in the media and in academe would offer their corrections
on far broader and more serious issues with far deeper implications for the future of
this country.

Student Apologizes for CHA Bomb Threat
To whom it may concern:

My name is Tiffany Hyder and I am 15 years old. I attended Chiefland High
School. I was in school on Friday, September 28 enjoying my day and heard
about the bomb threat in the middle school. I was in my P.E. class and wanted to
play a joke. I wrote a bomb threat down on a piece of toilet paper, and put it on
another girl's backpack. Again, please remember I only wanted to play a joke. I
unfortunately did not realize at the time how serious this joke was, and did not
realize it would not be treated as a joke.
I am sorry for all the problems I caused. I apologize to the committee, the school
board, everyone at Chiefland High School and the city and state officials that
responded to the call. Again, I am very sorry for what I have done. I only hope that
my apology is accepted by everyone. I can't stress enough that I did not realize how
serious this was going to be. I have learned my lesson on playing jokes and I will
never do this again. Again, I apologize to everyone.

The Yankeetown 29:

A Cross Section of Defendants

Dear Editor,


Twenty-nine citizens of
Yankeetown and Inglis,
Florida were named this
week in one. of a long list
of lawsuits from an Ohio
developer. This suit is
by Forum Architects, a
company associated with
Izaak Walton Investors,
who are being represented
by Harriet Lewis of the
firm Lewis, Stroud and
Deutsch.
All are charged with
conspiracy and interfering
in a business relationship
by aligning themselves
with a local grassroots
group. The group named
in the suit is SWAY
(Save the Withlacoochee
and Yankeetown).
SWAY was a small
fact finding group that
investigated items such
as the Manatee Protection
Plan, Outstanding
Florida Waterways
and Yankeetown's
Comprehensive Plan
and Code of Ordinances.
The group was formed to
educate its members about
the pending development.
Named in the suit
are people who have
contributed to their
community in many
ways; who have held
positions of responsibility
in corporations, owned
their own businesses,
served in the military,
served in government and
law enforcement, taught
school, worked faithfully
in jobs of all kinds to.
provide for their families
and then retired to a quiet
place to enjoy the fruits of
their labors. Many have
been in Yankeetown for
years and the rest came
for the same reason they


did-the. peacefulness and
beauty of the area.
Their desire is to keep
it that way as long as
possible. Knowing that
change will come, they
wish to have some say in
what those changes will
be and therefore SWAY
was organized to study the
impact of development.
Some of the people
named in the suit include:
-A woman in her 80s, a
pillar of the community,
who lives in Inglis. She
certainly can't influence
the local government
with her vote or facilitate
appointments to
Yankeetown committees.
-A highly respected local
woman in her 80's who
is active in mainstream
national politics and
community events and who
never attended any SWAY
meetings as charged.
-Another of the defendants
is a long time resident in
her 70s whose battle for
the past few years has been
in trying to save her own
life, not with development.
Still she finds time to be the
first one to offer help to her
neighbors.
-A wonderful neighbor in
his 70s, recovering from
life threatening surgery, is
also on the list. He rarely
attends any meetings, but
he desires to see that his
neighbors rights are not
trampled.
-A man who is known for
his integrity, honesty and
loyalty to his friends and
neighbors and is always
one of the first on the scene
to offer help in times of
need. He loves Yankeetown
but he has never attended
any meetings


- A retired Navy Captain
and retired Submarine
Officer with nuclear
training.
-Volunteer firemen
who risk their lives for
Yankeetown and volunteer
help that gives their time to
our town.
This group of citizens is
mostly older, retired or
semi retired folks. Some
have never attended a town
meeting or any private
meeting about the issues in
the lawsuit. The defendants
who still work are two
elementary school teachers,
a landscaper, a librarian,
two realtors. Two are self-
employed.
The remaining defendants
are part of the town
administration that have
had seven lawsuits, three
temporary injunctions and
two appeals filed against
them in the past year by
Izaak Walton Investors
(IWI) and their associates.
Three of the lawsuits have
been dismissed, one was
filed but never served,
three temporary injunctions
have been sought and none
have been granted to IWI
and associates. The others
are still pending.
These people make up the
so-called ignorant, angry
mob of Yankeetown!
The truth is that they are
citizens like you with a
strong desire for fairness
and their Constitutional
Rights of free speech,
assembly and election.

Marsha Drew, Yankeetown

Town of Yankeetown


Candidate for Town Council (Incumbent)
The past year has been a busy one in Yankeetown and we ve come a long
way. Recall that in the summer of 2006 we came close to ceasing to function
as a Town. We almost failed to submit a Budget the Town's insurance policy
almost lapsed, and we nearly lost our CRS incentive discounts with the
National Flood Insurance Program.

Two major projects are finally coming close to fruition this year the water
plant and the Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve grants. Both have been very time
consuming but have been kept moving forward through the dedicated
efforts of a number of elected, appointed and volunteer individuals in our
Town

The Planning and Zoning Commission has worked tirelessly this ,'ear to
review and amend the Comprehensive Plan The Council has forwarded a
preliminary draft to the Department of Community Affairs for review and
comment. We have also formed a Storm Water Drainage Committee and an
Arbor Committee to study problems and solutions for our drainage issues
and the health of our urban forest.

Thanks to the dedication and hard work of newly elected officials cormmt-
tee members Town staff and man/ volunteers we have made excellent
progress in turning things around We ve accomplished a lot but we still
have lots to do. i want to help finish the work that we ve begun if you will
let me I remain committed to open government and responsible develop-
ment, going forward, that is appropriate to the special character of
Yankeetown and respects the interests of all stakeholders. not just a few if
you are similarly motivated please vote for me for Town Council. If on the
other hand you would prefer for the Town to accommodate higher density
development for the benefit of a few, or less open government then please-
vote for one of my opponents I l gladl/ step down and return to spend-
ing more time on the other important areas in my life: family, making a living
and maybe some fishing

I also strongly support Dawn Marie Clary for Mayor and Norm Shannahan for
Town Council

Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Oct. 11, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Two
Log Cabin quilt tops were put
together, and quilting will start.
We thank the members who
put quilts together; it takes
time and patience to get them
ready to quilt. B.J. brought in
a beautiful Dresden Plate. We
hope she puts it in the fair.
We enjoyed having Rainy
Miller, her husband, sister and
friend come up from Crystal
River. Rainy plays a piano,
and if I could play like she
does, I'd never do anything
else. She also writes a lot
of her music, and we look
forward to her being with us
in the coming weeks.
We had a big load of
clothes, dishes, books and
what have you, and we are
getting ready for our porch
sale. Through the year we
have had so much brought in
that we never use, so we need
to get it cleared out and make
room for more.
Nick Turner and six boys
were out Tuesday and we
had a great day. We got a
strawberry patch planted,
more onions and broccoli
planted, the yard got mowed,
rugs got washed and so much
more. Thanks Lancaster.
Today was chicken
day. Potatoes, cheese and
macaroni, slaw peas and
carrots, cabbage, pea salad,
macaroni salad, coconut and
chocolate pies, fruit cake and
so much more.
Fifteen people were present.

Miss Honey Says...
Hi everyone! I have been very lazy today,
but that's not a surprise, is it? I am lazy most
S- everyday! But that's okay, my little ones
"-.. S (dogs) don't mind as long as they get fed.
S There isn't anyone else to care, so there, I
S' can be lazy if I want to and feel like it. Oh
yeah, can too, so hush Donald. I bet Mary will
agree, you are a little bit lazy, too. But what
the heck, when we, you and I, have been here
this many years we have earned the right to be lazy. Don't you
agree? I thought so!
,Here's hoping my cousin Ray Burnett is well on his way to a
full recovery, and I ask God to bless and comfort Frances and
keep her safe. Oh, where would any of us be without Jesus and
all of his blessings?
I have so much to do today, but no one to make me do it, and
the silver needs rolling at A&A and also my chair is calling me
down at the Dollar Store.Listen can't you hear it? Miss Honey
come on down. Uh huh, just listen, okay?
Oh I needed some help and I needed it last night, so I called
on Jesus (who else), and I got that help right away. I didn't
have to wait, who else will answer that quickly? No one, but
Jesus, He is always close by ready and willing, only ask and
believe. Oh, where would I be without Him and His love?
Friends are great, and I love my kids, but no one ever cared for
me like Jesus. He never fails me. He supplies all my needs and
most of my wants.
Well I guess I've said enough, so I'll shut up, get up, and
go down and visit with my friends, wrap some silver and sit
and greet at the Dollar Store. There aren't any yard sales to
go to today, but I'll find something to do and some one to
talk to. I need to keep busy and keep my mind alert. Hush
Donald, I do have a mind, and it's a good one too. How else
would I remember so many memories of so long ago, such as
Christmas at Mr. Henry White's when I was three years old,
and the big container of hard candy Mr. White was handing
out, and the wax doll he gave me? Oh yeah, I remember it
Well.
Well I. guess I'll hush up, get up and take this to the Journal
and make .m rounds So until next week God bless and take

Levy County
State Road 24 Daytime lane closures between the Channel Four Bridge in Cedar Key

a.m. Flaggers will direct traffic around the lane closures. Motorists entering SR 24 from a

In 1843, during the Second Seminole Indian War, the United States Government
maintained a fort at the headwaters of the Waccasassa to barracks' troops fighting Indians
in the interior of East Florida. The fort was named Fort Waccasassa or Fort No. Eight and
was operational from March, 1839 until January, 1843.

On November 30, 1838 during the Second Seminole Indian War, the U.S. Department
of War established a fort on the east bank of the Suwannee River about 20 miles above
its mouth and named it Fort Fanning. The fort was named for Lt. Col. A.C.W. Fanning,
an officer of the Georgia Volunteers who served in the Florida War and was distinguished
at the Battle of Withlacoochee. The post was abandoned on February 22, 1843 and the
reservation relinquished by the Secretary of War March 23, 1849.

On November 11, 1850, Peter Welch came before Judge of Probate for Levy County,
Simon Harvey, and took oath that he came to the United States as a minor with his father.
Welch's father became a naturalized citizen while Peter was still a minor and according to
the laws of the United States, Peter became a citizen upon reaching the age of 18.

On November 14, 1850, the first Federal Census of Levy County was enumerated
by Hiram T. Mann of Marion County. The number of men, women and children Mann
located in the three districts of Levy County totaled 320 and the number of dwellings
totaled 66. Ten years later Assistant Marshall, John J. McWilliams enumerated 1,331 men,
women and children and the number of dwellings totaled 216.

performances at 10:00 p.m. and head for his bunk, so he could
rise early to help one of his many friends build his home before
the Florida sun became too hot. He loved to sit on the back porch
and watch the multitude of boats go by towed by the biggest little
trucks in America. Old Town's simple life made him very content.
He said, "It's a man's paradise."

Center in Chiefland where the entire staff bestowed care, comfort
and love upon her. For this kindness her family is profoundly
grateful.

Make A Joyful
Noise Unto The
LLord
By Elder Gary Jtz
I would like to share
with the reader a few of
my thoughts on the first
verse of Psalm 100. As
I prayerfully begin this
task, my chief concern
and desire is that my
efforts would give glory
and honor to God. We
can have confidence that
the truth of the gospel
that glorifies and honors
our Lord will certainly
bless and edify the Lord's
people. Psalm 100 teaches
us about our sovereign
God, who has made us
his people for His own
glory and praise. It clearly
declares who we are and
who He is. Our highest
duty and joy is to praise
our God, bless His name,
and be thankful unto Him.
The Lord's people are His
creation and this psalm
calls us to worship our
creator.
"Make a joyful noise unto
the Lord, all ye lands"
(Psalm 100:1). God's
children are commanded
in this verse to be actively
and joyfully praising our
Lord. The elect family
of God is identified by
the words, "all ye lands."
The Lord has an elect
fainily, chosen in Christ
before the foundation of
the world, an innumerable
company of saints,
redeemed by the blood of
Christ our Savior, "out of
every kindred, and tongue,
and people, and nation."

Mastering the Fall Transition
by Scott Suggs
Fishing in the fall is all about dealing with the transition. The shallow water
is cooling off and bass that previously found comfort in the cool confines of the
deeper water don't mind moving shallow in search of food. Those big schools of
suspended fish have slid higher in the water column and migrated to the shoreline
points and inside turns. Baitfish that spawn in the fall are moving into the shallow
flats covered with vegetation and bass are following right along. Fall is a time of
transition and anglers must adapt to find fish.
When I'm setting up a fall profile my main considerations are surface water
temperature and available deep structure.
When the cool nights drop surface temperatures in the shallow bays and along
the shoreline structure to levels that the bass find favorable you can give the mid-
lake structure a break and target that shoreline cover and structure. From sixty-
eight degrees and cooler I know that the bass that were hiding on the deep mid-
lake structure will once again be utilizing the shallower shoreline regions.
When fishing shallow cover and structure anticipate that the fish will be spread
out. Those tightly-schooled pods of fish that you held the boat over the top of just
a few weeks earlier are busted up in the fall and individual fish are meandering
looking for a baitfish. In a situation like this it's best to use techniques that allow
you to cover ground and strain the water.
Deeper structure will tend to consolidate the fish better, but don't expect to find
big schools offish like you did earlier, even on the deep stuff. Every species,
including the baitfish, are in a migration mode. Try Carolina rigging a Berkley
PowerBait 6-inch Power Lizard or a 10-inch Berkley Gulp! Turtleback Worm
around deep structure like rockpiles and ledges.
If you can't find the bass on deeper structure, try going shallow, by using a
spinnerbait fished parallel to the weed or wood line. If that doesn't produce, don't
be afraid to slow down and use Texas-rigged 7-inch Power Worm and cast it close
to the structure that should hold bass. Just remember, the thicker the cover, the
heavier line you will want to use.
Summer may be behind us and many people might have football and hunting
season on the mind, but there are still plenty of big bass to catch. The fall bite can
be a tough one, especially if you can't figure out the transition period. But once
you get it down, you should be able to go catch bass anywhere while everyone else
has their rods and reels put away.
Scott Suggs is the 2007 FLW Champion and the first angler in professional bass
fishing to win $1 million in a single tournament.


Not All Muzzleloaders are Legal

for Muzzleloading Gun Season

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to make
it clear to all muzzleloader hunters not all muzzleloaders are created equal. Some
of the new models do not meet the legal definition of guns authorized for use during
muzzleloading gun season.
The two issues which seem to be generating the most questions are whether
muzzleloaders with an electronic ignition are legal and whether the use of nitro-
cellulosepowderis -legal. Neither-is legal-for use in Florida during muzzleloading
gun season. "
"In particular, the CVA Electra is a new muzzleloader on the market that doesn't
qualify as a state-defined muzzleloader," said Capt. John Miller of FWC's Division
of Law Enforcement. "It is not a legal weapon for muzzleloader season because it
uses an electronic ignition, fired by a battery."
The legal types of guns for use during the muzzleloading gun season use black
powder or a non-nitro-cellulose substitute and are fired by wheel lock, flintlock
or percussion cap ignition. They are not adaptable to use of any self-contained
cartridge ammunition.
The CVA Electra muzzleloader is legal to use during general gun season, however.
For more information on muzzleloader hunting, visit MyFWC.com/hunting.


All the Right Reasons to Raise Pigs
The pig is the friendliest animal on the farm by far: always available for a scratch
behind the ears, hardly ever moody, and quick with a grunt of delight.
Food items that are no longer fit for consumption by people or other animals
(rancid milk, leftovers from the supper table, spoiled hay) are all delicious, delights
for the accommodating pig.
Have a daunting pile of winter manure in the barn that needs to be addressed?
Poke some holes in it, fill them with grain, and let the pigs at it. You'll have light,
well-turned compost in a month or so.
Porcine Facts and Figures
The fastest member of the pig family is the warthog, which can reach speeds of
35 mph.
Though "pigging out" is synonymous with gluttony; the stomach of a pig is
proportionately much smaller than that of a cow or sheep.
To find out how much a pig weighs, measure its girth (in inches) by wrapping a
tape measure around the animal just behind the front legs. Then measure the length
from the ears to the base of the tail. The pig's weight (in pounds) will be equal to
the square of the girth, times the length, divided by 400. (If math isn't your thing,
buy a hog tape at the feed store; the calculations are built into it.)
The preceding excerpt is from The 2008 Old Farmer's Almanac.

Outta' the Woods


By Tony Young


Crossbow, Muzzleloading and Dove Season Opens

Football season's in full swing, and the 2007-08 hunting season's starting to
crank up.
Archery season's been going on in most of the state, and in this issue, I want to
talk about three other seasons about to start: crossbow, muzzleloading gun and the
first phase of dove season.
Crossbow season occurs between archery and muzzleloading gun season in
the Central and South hunting zones, lasting five days: Oct. 22-26 and Oct. 8-
12, respectively. In the Northwest zone, it comes in later, on the Monday after
Thanksgiving (Nov. 26), and lasts one week through Dec. 3.
This season's for any hunter who'd like to use a crossbow or continue using
a bow on private lands. This is not just for disabled hunters. Crossbow season
doesn't apply to wildlife management areas (WMAs), however.
The most common game to take during crossbow season will be deer and
wild hog. Only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least five-inches
long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. Wild hogs
- considered livestock on private lands may, with landowner permission, be
hunted year-round with no bag or size limits.
It's also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during crossbow season.
Only one may be taken per day, and there's a two-bird fall-season limit. But you
can't hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and
hand-held releases on bows are permitted. For hunting deer, hog and turkey,
broadheads must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8
inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset.
Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over bait on private lands.
Some things you can't do during crossbow season include hunting deer, hog
or turkey with dogs, using explosive or drug-injecting arrows, and possessing
firearms.
Immediately following the close of crossbow season in the Central and South
hunting zones is the beginning of muzzleloading gun season. Season dates run
Oct. 27 Nov. 4 and Oct. 13-21, respectively. Muzzleloading season comes in
later in the Northwest zone and runs Nov. 16-18.
During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are legal methods
of taking game on private lands, along with muzzleloaders. On WMAs, only
muzzleloaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the same for muzzleloading gun season as crossbow
season. And, legal game, including bag limits and prohibited methods for
taking game, also are the same as crossbow season. Bag limits and antler/size
restrictions for game on WMAs can differ, so check the specifics of the area
before you hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleloaders firing single bullets must be at least .40-caliber.
Guns firing two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. You may not use
muzzlelqadirs with self-cpntained catridge ammunition capabilities or possess
modem firearms during muzzleloading gun season.
The first phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season begins Oct. 6
and ends Oct. 29 statewide. Shooting hours during this first phase are noon to
sunset, and there's a 12-bird daily bag limit.
The only firearm you're allowed to hunt doves with is a shotgun, but you
can't use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell
capacity (magazine and chamber combined).
you may hunt doves over an agricultural field, as long as the crop's been planted
as part of regular agricultural practices. However, it's against the law to scatter
agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting.
Some things you can't do while dove hunting are using rifles, pistols or
crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; or herding or driving doves with a
vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunting license, you'll need a $5 crossbow permit to
hunt during crossbow season. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is needed to hunt
during muzzleloader season, and you'll need a no-cost migratory bird permit if
you're going to hunt doves. If you hunt on a WMA, you must have a management
area permit that costs $26.50. All are available at county tax collectors' offices
or license agents or by calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA or clicking
MyFWC.com/license.
So if you're going after that monster buck during the crossbow and
muzzleloading gun seasons or dove hunting with friends and family, I hope I've
helped explain the rules and regulations on some of Florida's hunting seasons.
Tony Young looks forward to using an old crossbow his mother bought him when
he was 14 and putting it to good use during the crossbow and muzzleloading gun
seasons. He also likes dove hunting with good friends.

By STEVE JARBOE '
SPORTS EDITOR
Adrenalin and excitement ran high as the Williston Lady Red Devils faced the Bronson Lady
Eagles for the last time this season. With two close matches and impressive plays from both teams,
the Red Devils left with both wins.
The evening started with the junior varsity teams taking the floor for the first match. The Lady
Eagles took game one 25-12, and the Red Devils immediately returned the favor by taking the second
game by the same score, 25-12, to set up the tie-breaker game.
The junior varsity Lady Red Devils pulled the final game out at the end, 15-9, to win the match.
When the varsity teams took the floor, each team started two seniors. The Lady Red Devils
also started three freshmen and a sophomore, while the Lady Eagles filled out their team with one
freshman, one sophomore and two juniors.
With tremendously long volleys by each team, a large number of individual saves, great kills and
several ace serves, the Lady Red Devils took the first two games with final scores of 25-15 and 25-17.


Trenton's New Lineup Wins


Over Chiefland

By DAVID LEACH
SPORTS WRITER

Following a lackluster team performance in a loss to the Williston Red Devils, Tigers head
volleyball coach Steve Broker made a move last week and went to his junior varsity team for help.
"We were up by two games at Williston last Monday and lost the last three games and the match
because we just committed too many unforced errors and stopped communicating as a team. We
went cold too many times in the last three games" said Broker.
"I brought up a couple of JV players the next day to see just which of my varsity players want to
play the way they are capable of playing," Broker continued.

JV Red Devils shut out Santa Fe, 49-0
By ANGEL FLOYD
SPORTS WRITER

After last week's game with West Port was cancelled due to inclement weather, the junior varsity
Red Devils faced their last game of the season traveling to play the Santa Fe Raiders. Rested and
ready, the Red Devils scored early and often, while their defense put up a strong effort to hold the
Raiders scoreless in a 49-0 sweep.
In the first quarter, the Red Devils Deshaun King broke loose for a 30-yard run for the first score
of the game. Dontrelle Edwards added the 2-point conversion, and the score was 8-0 for the Red
Devils.
On their first possession of the second quarter, quarterback Dalton Edwards drove the junior-
varsity Red Devils down the field in just five plays and scored on a 10-yard keeper. The 2-point try
was good, giving the Red Devils a 16-0 lead.
As the Raiders went to the air, the Red Devils Garrette Collins intercepted a pass and returned it
for a touchdown. The 2-point try was stopped by the Raiders' defense, leaving the Red Devils at a
22-0 lead.
With just under one minute to play in the first half, Red Devil Desmand Holmes ran in for another
touchdown. This time the 2-point try was good, taking'the Red Devils 30-0 into half time.
The Red Devils' defense started the second half where they left off, as Collins had another
interception. Quarterback Edwards scored his second touchdown of the game, and the Red Devils
were now leading 36-0 after a failed 2-point try.
The fourth quarter started with the Red Devils scoring another touchdown to take a 42-0 lead.
Then after forcing the Raiders to punt, Red Devil Collins scored the last touchdown of the game as he
raced 60 yards for the touchdown. The extra point was good, and the junior varsity Red Devils ended
their season with a 49-0 shutout win over the Santa Fe' Raiders.
Head coach Jim Smith said he was pleased with the team's progress this season, which they ended
with a 4-2 record.
There will be several junior varsity players who will move up to the varsity team to finish out the
varsity season.

Drinking water notification

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
ABOUT YOUR DRINKING
WATER
Otter Creek Has Levels
of Disinfection Byproducts
Above Drinking Water
Standards

Our water system recently
violated a drinking water standard.
Although this is not an emergency,
as our customers, you have a right
to know what happened, what you
should do, and what we are doing
to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for
the presence of drinking water
contaminants. Testing results
we received on October 1, 2007
show that our system exceeds
the standards, or maximum
contaminant levels, (MCL), for
Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs),
which includes both Total
Trihalomethanes (TTHMs), and
Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5).
The standards for TTHMs and
HAA5 are 60 and 45 micrograms
per liter (mg/L), respectively. The
average level of TTHMs. and
HAA5 over the last year was 157.
mg/L and 68.9mg/L, respectively.

What should I do?
Recent research results
suggest a possible connection
between high levels of DBPs and
pregnancy problems. Therefore,
women of childbearing age may
wish to seek alternative water
sources. Any customers who are
concerned about their exposure
to DBPs can choose alternative
sources of water for ingestion,
such as commercial bottled water
or water treated by an appropriate
home water treatment device,
until we correct the problem.
Appropriate home water treatment
devices are those certified by NSF
(National Sanitation Foundation)
for reducing DBPs in drinking
water.
Some people who drink water
containing trihalomethanes in
excess of the MCL over many
years may experience problems
with their liver, kidneys, or central
nervous system, and may have an
increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water
containing haloacetic acids in
.excess of, the MCL.l over many
a"rs may h'iaetafi SH ad'edfrk
of getting cancer.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If
it had been, you would have been
notified .immediately.

What happened?
Otter Creek uses chlorine to
disinfect in the Town's drinking
water. Chlorine has been used
worldwide for over 100 years to
disinfect drinking water. Because
of chlorine, many diseases have
been stopped from becoming
epidemic. The use of chlorine is
required by
law. Otter Creek's water comes
from wells. Well water comes from
rain, which seeps into the ground
and absorbs organic matter on its
way through the ground. When
chlorine (as free chlorine) reacts
with the naturally present organic
in the water, it forms DBPs.
DBPs in drinking water have the
potential to cause certain diseases
when water containing DBPs is
consumed over many years.

What is being done?
We have an engineer studying
the situation. He will advise us-


on the best course of action to
meet the Total Trihalomethanes
standards.

For more information please
contact the Town of Otter Creek
at 352-486-4766 or 352-486-
4413 or P.O. Box 65, Otter
Creek, FI 32683-0065.

Levy EMD just happy to be nominated


By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Levy County's director of emergency management has
somewhat of a double life by day he serves as public worker and
in his spare time as a bluegrass innovator.
Recently, emergency management director and banjoist Mark
Johnson and mandolinist Emory Lester were nominated for their
2006 CD, "Acoustic Rising," in the International Bluegrass
Association's best instrumental category for album of the year,
but were topped by banjo legend Tony Trischka's "Bluegrass
Spectacular."
Growing up in upstate New York, Johnson began playing
banjo early in life. He is influenced by the traditional style
of bluegrass using a "clawhammer" style to explore more
contemporary music that fuses the old standards with progressive
movements.


Johnson has studied banjo with folk instrumentalist Jay
Unger and has remained active in the bluegrass community,
teaching workshops with banjo virtuosos like Bela Fleck as well
as bluegrass stars like Sam Bush and Ricky Skaggs.
Huge influences in his music are Tony and Larry Rice.
Johnson met Larry Rice when they both worked at the Crystal
River Nuclear Plant, and the two helped him record his first CD,
"Clawgrass."
Tony Rice regards Johnson as a remarkable talent and says
that his music "is authentic the sound speaks for itself."
Johnson said that if it was not for Larry Rice he doubts that
he would be where he is today.
Larry Rice passed away last year from cancer. Johnson
called his daughter, Kayla, when he found out that he had been
nominated.

Williston seeks alternative
waste collection, disposal
service


By DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
At the Oct. 2 Williston
City Council meeting,
City Manager James
Coleman recommended
the city's waste collection
and disposal service be
offered for bid to private
waste management
companies.
At an earlier meeting,
the council had tasked
Coleman to review
and report the city's
costs for vegetative
yard waste collection,
a service performed by
the city at no cost to its
residents, and suggest
an appropriate per-load
fee or alternatives for
their consideration.
Coleman reported that
the city historically
spent $232,000 annually
collecting and disposing
yard waste and that a
$44.75 per-pickup fee


2007 EDGE
UpTo
! r f"


T.-T-I-! r


was required to defray
that cost. Coleman
hastened to add that
applying such a fee was
not his recommendation.
The recent 25 percent
increase in the city's
solid waste collection fee
paid by residents should
have been a 100 percent
increase, Coleman said.
That is to say, the city's
collection and disposal
costs for solid waste,
vegetative yard waste and
white steel (discarded
appliances) greatly
exceed the fees collected.
The city cannot do it as
efficiently and cheaply
as private enterprise,
Coleman said, and
recommended the service
be "bid out."
A lengthy discussion
followed, including
contributions from
interested city residents
attending. At its
conclusion, the council
accepted Coleman's
recommendation.
Subsequently, the council
directed him to issue
a request for proposal
for the collection and
disposal of solid waste,
vegetative yard waste and
white steel.
In a follow-up phone
conversation, Coleman
said he intends to seek a
good collection rate for
the city's residents. He
expressed confidence that
he would succeed, citing
the waste management
companies' specialized
expertise and their
economy of scale as
relevant factors.

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


[NG UP
FELY


Hello and welcome to your Sheriff's Corer. This week I am focusing your attention
on a specific area of driving safety: backing up. Although this topic may appear to be a
no-brainer to you we all do it several times a day with relatively no problems the fact
is that vehicle crashes resulting specifically from driving in reverse are a real concern.
Hopefully, this article will cause you to use a little more caution the next time you put your
vehicle in reverse.
First, let's start with some facts. Backing into a fixed object or parked vehicle is usually
the most frequent type of crash to which insurance companies respond. Backup collisions
occur when a driver reverses the car into an object, person, or other car and, usually, the
reversing driver is the one at fault.
Although most cars come equipped with rear view mirrors, which are adequate for
detecting vehicles behind a car, they are inadequate on many vehicles for detecting small
children or objects close to the ground, which fall in the car's blind spot. According to
research done by Kids and Cars, an organization devoted to preventing non-traffic motor-
vehicle-related deaths and injuries, 49% of the non-traffic, non-crash fatalities involving
children under 15 from 2001-2005 were caused by vehicles backing up.
The CDC reported that from 2001-2003, an estimated 7,475 children under the age of
15 were treated for automobile back-over incidents. According to the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration, back-up collisions most often occur in residential driveways
and parking lots. They also most often occur when a parent, relative, or someone else
known to the family is driving, and they particularly affect children less than five years
old. The vehicles most likely involved in back-up collisions are trucks and sport utilities,
probably due to their larger blind spots.
The good news is that backing crashes are almost always avoidable. Below are practical
tips to help you avoid backing crashes.
1. Avoid backing when possible.
2. If you can, pick a parking spot you can pull straight into, so that when you depart
you are pulling forward instead of backing up.
3. Know what is behind your vehicle before you start to back.
4. Be aware that your rearview mirrors may not show you everything that is behind
you. It is always a good idea to have a spotter behind you in circumstances where
your view is partially obstructed or you are unsure of what is behind you.
5. Check your mirrors frequently while you back.
6. Back slowly; take your time as you back.
7. Keep your speed very low, down to a crawl. You want to be in control of your
vehicle at all times.
8. Be alert.
9. If you hear frantic yelling or horn blowing, stop. The commotion may have nothing
to do with you, but then again there's always the possibility that it may have
everything to do with you.
10. As you back up, watch for pedestrians.
11. If you're not sure what's behind you and you don't have anyone else with you who
can act as youth spotter, get out and look for yourself. It is better to be safe than sorry.


Hallowe'en SafetyTips


Halloween is a time of
great fun for children, but
it can be a little scary for
parents and drivers. Children
are often out after dark,
crossing busy streets and
perhaps going to unfamiliar
homes.
If children are out at
night, drivers need to be
particularly careful at dusk
and when driving either over
a hill or around a curve,
where visibility is limited.
Use high beams to see and
be seen.
Trick-or-treaters should
always be accompanied by
an adult or travel in a group.
Children should be told not
to eat any unwrapped candy
or treats until they return
home where their parents
can see them. Making sure
kids have already eaten
before heading out may help.
Parents may want to limit
kids to local events run by

omaeseyi
alddma
*BIM4^^R BI^^^^H^^^R


police stations, firehouses,
senior citizen centers or local
businesses, or organize their
own through their school.
Parents should incorporate
reflective tape in costumes or
add bright colors to increase
visibility. Make-up rather
than masks should be worn
to help ensure that children
have an unobstructed view of
their surroundings.
Trick-or-treaters may be
caught up in the excitement
of the day and not be as
careful as they should.
They should always cross
at covers and look both
ways before crossing.
Drivers need to keep
a careful eye on the road
and on the sidewalk, in
case anyone darts out from
between parked cars.
Children should stay on
the sidewalk or if none is
available, walk facing the
lane of traffic, and they


mir


WeiU O6e~ ay deaeol


should carry a flashlight.
Homeowners should clear
their yards of anything that
can be tripped over and be
sure to have a front door
or walkway light on, and
refrain from decorations that
use an open flame that could
ignite a child's costume.

Religious Revival in Chiefland


By BILLMCCREA
STAFF WRITER

A weeklong revival under what is known as the
"canvas cathedral" began last Sunday night in Chiefland
with as many as 3,000 worshipers gathering at a time.
The event was planned by 36 Levy County pastors
who agreed that the area on the east side of U.S. 19, north
of Chiefland, would be a prime location for the gathering.
As busloads of worshipers filed into the revival,
Rev. Travis Hudson of the Hardeetown Baptist Church
expressed what he felt the event intends to accomplish.
"Our goal is to bring people to Jesus Christ and to have
a greater fellowship to build up the church," said Hudson.
One reason this revival is so important to area pastors
is that it provides a place large enough to meet the needs
of those who want to come together and worship.
"We're having fun, we really are it's exciting," said
Hudson.
The Chiefland Ministerial Alliance had a revival a few
years ago at the Chiefland High School football stadium.
Organizers this time felt that a tent would be large enough
to accommodate the thousands who come and would also
maintain a church-like atmosphere.
Children and teens were also involved in the revival
by hosting a "youth night" on Wednesday with pizza and
fellowship.
