Three Incumbents to

Return to Yankeetown

Council
By LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Yankeetown voters returned incumbent Mayor
Dawn Clary and councilmen Larry Feldhusen and
Norm Shannahan to the council for another term.
Clary took 191 votes, while her challenger. James
Petrovitch took 123 votes. Feldhusen took 196 votes
and Shannahan 195 votes. They defeated their
challengers, Eleanor Berkley, with 123 votes, and
Kerry Hayes, with 114. The two candidates with the
highest votes took the two contested council seats.
Voter turnout was a high 71.1 percent, with 318 of
the 447 registered voters casting ballots.
Gary Holland, assistant general council to the
Department of State, said the election went well
and the turnout was exceptional. City officials
ensured that the voting went without a hitch, he
said.
"The people did a magnificent job of processing
the votes," he said. Holland and Mark Corbett with
the Division of Elections came from Tallahassee to
observe the elections.
The winning candidates could not be reached for
comment late Tuesday.
While voters seemed to support the work of the
three incumbents, Berkley said the results suggest a
divided town.
"I think it does send a message to town hall that
not everybody in Yankeetown agrees with what
they are doing," she said.
The three incumbents have taken a strong
position against a proposed waterfront project that
they say is incompatible with the town's character
and its ability to support development.

Levy County Drug Task Force Nets

Four Arrests

Evidence seized in mini-raid on Monday.
BRONSON-On Oct.29, the Levy County Drug Task Force
conducted a mini round-up in the Bronson area and arrested
four people. Three adults, Jasmyn Tuttle, Terry Deedrick, Jr.
and Christia Petrone were booked in the Levy County jail
for narcotic charges. The juvenile was arrested and released
to his parents.
The Drug Task Force has been conducting undercover
buys in the Bronson area for the past three months. During 9


Mullins Addresses

Teen Driving Safety

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
Lt. Sean Mullins from the Levy County Sheriff's Office
talked to the members of the Chiefland Area Chamber
of Commerce about the department's new teen driver
improvement initiative.
The program will be funded by a $10,000 grant from the
Department of Transportation
(DOT) and will help combat
what Mullins said is an
alarming statistic as Levy :
County is ranked second
in the state in teen driving
fatalities, in rural counties
with populations less than
50,000.
Mullins said that because
of these statistics, th6
department thought a
"hands-on" approach might
be the best way to deal
with improving the drivers' Lt. Sean Mullins
knowledge of the road. The -
program used different mock scenarios and clever training
tools to alert the teens on the dangers of impairment; for
example, they used "DUI Goggles" and distracted driving
mocking the actions of a cell phone call while driving in
golf carts.
The one that Mullins says is definitely the most graphic in
the driver improvement series is "Red Asphalt."
"Hence the name, it shows everything: dead bodies,
dismembered bodies everything," said Mullins, adding
that this film is used to remind students of the realities of
"racetrack driving" on the roadways.
"I encourage you, if you have children, grandchildren, and
would like to take this program, to contact the school," said
Mullins. "We also encourage parents to go."
Mullins said that because of the success of the driver
improvement program that the DOT would like to use it as a
model for the state.
The number of ATV and motorcycle crashes in Levy
County is very high, said Mullins, and the DOT has
awarded a $30,000 grant to set off a new series of driver
improvement classes to deal specifically with these vehicles.

Chiefland
Receives
Annexation
Approval from
School Board
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
The City of Chiefland met
with the School Board of
Levy County to discuss the
annexation of the board's
property located in the north
sector of town off of U.S. 129
and County Road 321.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy and
City Manager Grady Hartzog
asked the board to annex the
3.5 acres they own into the
city and to change the usage
classification.
"What we would like is for
the property to come into the
city as agriculture use," said
Hartzog Tuesday.
Superintendent Cliff Norris
wanted to know what impact
"would coming into the city of
Chiefland" have on the school
board.
Pomeroy responded by
saying: "Your property taxes
will be the same. Your zoning
will be the same. And, it will
be maintained as an agriculture
site."
The city is also planning
to "protect the rights of
those agriculture sites," said
Pomeroy, adding, "This will
mainly stop us from having an
enclave."
District Four Rep. Paige
Brookins made a motion to
accept Chiefland's proposal
that passed with the board's
unanimous approval.


the drug sting undercover agents purchased and recovered
marijuana, methadone tablets, MS-Contin, morphine sulfate
pills, hydrocodone pills, Lorcet pills, Lortab pills and drug
paraphernalia. Two vehicles were seized.
Defendants were charged with sales and possession of
marijuana, sales and possession of a controlled substance
without a prescription (methadone), and maintaining a drug
dwelling.


Judge Denies

Yankeetown Case
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
Judge David A. Glant scheduled an emergency meeting at the
Levy County Courthouse on Monday in response to a lawsuit
filed by Yankeetown resident Carl Mazzuca.
Mazzuca, with the council of Harriet Lewis, sought a notice of
temporary injunction to halt the Yankeetown election in which
certain referendum "charter amendments" had been added to the
ballot. He also claims that there was no required notice for the
referendums, which should have been published in a local paper
the third and fifth week prior to the election.
Dale Scott, attorney for Yankeetown, said that there had been
prior notice given in the Citrus County Chronicle. Lewis argued
that mention of the general election was stated, but mention of
the referendum ballot was not.
Judge Giant denied Mazzuca's injunction, stating that the key
issue in determining his ruling was the matter of what Florida
Statute applied.
"I don't think this issue should come before the court upon a
post-election review," said Glant, regarding Statute 100.342
After reading both statutes, "I believe that it is 156 that
applies," said Giant, adding, "Part of the reason I say that is
because the argument for the plaintiff was that the title itself
referred to a referendum; therefore, the referendum in 100.342
applies."
Glant continued saying that the answer is not that
straightforward, and "the title doesn't determine the substance."
An ordinance was advertised by the town with information
about the referendum ballot. Glant said in his decision that the
information in 156 "also includes requirements for advertising
the ordinance, and the advertisement for the town does actually
apply."
Glant said there was adequate advertisement that provided
the information about the referendum ballot of the 11 charter
amendments: a letter sent to the voters, newspaper notices and
posts at the town hall.
"I am not being asked to rule on the sufficiency of the sample
ballot," Glant said in closing, addressing each party's arguments
for clarification, stating it was not part of the injunction.
Mazzuca's grounds for relief stemmed from what he believed
was a violation of Florida Statutory Law, regarding the required
notice for referendums. "We have a petition with about 130
signatures on it. We're confused, and we don't know what this is
about. When we come back we'll be in a better position to state
our case," he said leaving the courthouse in Bronson.

Another Liberal Noose-Ance


._,' -^ BY ANN COULTER
UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE
Liberals are so invigorated by the story about a noose being found
on an obscure Columbia University professor's door that now nooses
are popping up all over New York City. Liberals love to make believe
'' i the Night Riders are constantly at their doors.
I'll be shocked by a noose appearing on a college campus the day
y | an actual racist does it.
S Could Columbia at least produce one student or professor who
supports racism before holding another "rally against racism"?
o j 1 Every concrete example of the racism allegedly sweeping the
nation's campuses keeps turning out to be a fraud. Far from
"institutional racism," there is "institutional racial hoaxism" run
amok in this country. Will anyone rally against that?
Out of legions, here are just a few hoax hate crimes on college campuses.
In 1997, at Duke University, a black doll was found hanging by a noose from a tree at the
precise spot where the Black Student Alliance was to be holding a rally against racism. Two
black students later admitted they were the culprits and were immediately praised for bringing
attention to the problem of racism on campus. Indeed, four years later the president of Duke gave a
baccalaureate address nostalgically describing the hoax as a "protest" against racism. Next stop: the
Nobel Peace Prize.
In 2003, vile racial epithets were scrawled on the dorm room doors at Ole Miss, producing
mass protests and a "Say No to Racism" march. And then it turned out the graffiti had been written
by black students, against whom no charges were brought. A "Say Yes to Racism" rally at Ole Miss
was later canceled due to lack of interest.
In 2005, obscenity-laced racist and anti-Semitic messages appeared on dormitory walls at
the College of Wooster in Ohio. The fliers were instantly blamed on "typical white males," even
though all the letter I's in the epithets were dotted with little hearts. Breadcrumbs left by the culprits
included the message "Vote Goldwater" among the obscenities. The matter was dropped and flushed
down the memory hole when the perpetrators turned out to be a group of leftist students led by a
black studies major.
Just this year, anti-Muslim fliers were put out on the George Washington University campus
- by leftists, including a member of "Iraq Veterans Against War." When it was thought the leaflets
were from the conservative group Young Americans For Freedom, the dean called for the expulsion
of the culprits and the university demanded that YAF officers sign a statement disavowing "hate
speech." But when it turned out leftists had distributed the-fliers, the matter was dropped faster than
Larry Craig was dropped from Mitt Romney's campaign.: '
The one real example of racism on a college campus in'recent memory was perpetrated against
white men of the Duke lacrosse team. As that injustice w kabeing perpetrated, gender and ethnic
professors at Duke kept droning on about the "racism and sexism" students "live with every day"
- as the professors put it in an open letter that falsely presumed the players were guilty of rape. We
don't expect a rally against the prejudiced professors, but an apology might be nice.
Playing the game of He Who Is Offended First Wins, Americans seek status not by claiming to
be rich or of royal lineage, but by portraying themselves as victims. In one recent hoax hate crime, a
white woman professor at Claremont McKenna College said her car had been vandalized with racist
and anti-Semitic graffiti, with the words "Shut Up!" spray-painted on the hood of her car.
She was not black or Jewish, but had recently converted to Judaism and spoke out against racism.
So she was a victim! After the vandalism of her car, she promptly became Queen for a Day. Far
from "silenced," this anonymous mountebank was given a national microphone to bore us with her
race-gender-culture theories. The campus was shut down for a day for anti-racism rallies in the
charlatan's honor. Then eyewitnesses identified her as the one who had spray-painted her own car,
and the pity party was over. P io9 --fV1 T J',:f l ) ,

Count Rangula
_____T___By CAL THOMAS
TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES


Just in time for Halloween comes House Ways and Means
Committee Chairman Charles Rangel henceforth known as
.i Count Rangula with a bill that would suck more blood from the
,. American taxpayers.
'Like Dracula the vampire, Count Rangula is cagey about his
intentions, luring his victims (us) with promises of "reforming" the
tax code.
Raise your hand if you believe we are not turning enough of our
income over to government. Raise your other hand if you think
government is too small and spends too little.
STax revenues are at a record high and the deficit is shrinking
under the Bush tax cuts. Since the policy is working even in the
middle of new spending by the former Republican majority and
current Democratic majority why does government require more
of our money? Why can't they live within our means? Why do we
allow government to get away with the fiction that everything it does is right and noble and true and if
we resist paying for it, we are unholy and uncaring?
Why don't politicians ever ask us if we have enough money? Why don't they focus on the waste,
fraud and abuse that so permeates government, no matter which party controls the White House
and Congress? They can start by reforming Social Security and Medicare, but won't because of the
demagoguery that surrounds every attempt to fix these soon-to-be bankrupt programs.
Predictably, Count Rangula promises to "fix" a tax code that everyone hates and few understand.
Vampires rely on deception. He includes just enough enticements, hoping we will buy the rest. But,
according to The National Taxpayers Union (NTU), "...on balance, (the bill) is likely to extract more
money from our economy and small businesses. That means fewer jobs, less income growth, and.
bigger government."
Count Rangula proposes to rid us of the dreadful Alternative Minimum Tax, which was designed
to make sure the super rich pay at least some taxes but, because of the failure to index the measure for
inflation, it has crept into the middle class. But he effectively resurrects the measure using a different
name, which would affect millions of Americans. He also would boost the standard deduction, but
simultaneously erode other popular write-offs, such as mortgage interest and charitable giving.
According to the NTU, "families who would qualify as upper middle class in many metro areas would
see their tax rates go as high as 44 percent, compared to the 35 percent or less they are now paying."
The NTU reports Count Rangula's claim that "91 million families" will benefit from his tax scheme,
but that number includes a spending giveaway to millions receiving the Earned Income Credit, which are
households that currently pay no taxes. Count Rangula is playing the familiar liberal Democratic class
warfare game, which punishes the productive while subsidizing the nonproductive (but able-bodied).
According to The Heritage Foundation's J.D. Foster, there are a few "roses" in the proposed
legislation. Among them is a reduction in the corporate income tax rate from the current 35 percent
to 30.5 percent. It needs to be lower, because the U.S. corporate tax rate is among the highest of
the industrialized nations and high tax rates hurt the ability of American businesses to compete
internationally. But the proposed lower rate is at least a move in the right direction.
Count Rangula's fangs come out when he proposes a 4 percent surtax on married filers with adjusted
gross incomes (AGIs) above $200,000 (4.6 percent for higher earning taxpayers). While recognizing
the benefits of lower corporate tax rates, he simultaneously proposes rate increases for individuals and
small businesses. And the surtax applies to AGI, not taxable income.
There's plenty more not to like and more thorough analyseswill be forthcoming when details of
the measure have been fully digested. The measure is unlikely to pass in an election year, but it gives
taxpayers an indication of where Democrats will take us if one of their own wins the White House.
They will spend more and tax more, much more.
While Republicans surrendered the spending issue when they controlled Congress, they still have
the tax issue. They'll need it to repel Count Rangula. Garlic, a cross, sunshine and a stake may not be
enough.

Assuming against all reason and experience that the Columbia
noose is not another hoax by a high-status victim, how is it that
a pimply adolescent can cause such tumult in liberal New York
City?
Liberals claim to believe the Klan has established a beachhead
at Columbia University, Bill O'Reilly is head of the Manhattan
branch, Rush Limbaugh despises the troops, I'm planning
a pogrom from the heart of Manhattan, and George Bush is
establishing fascism in America.
Some anonymous liberal hag on Air America Radio, which no
one knew was still on the air, fell down outside her Park Avenue
apartment this week, and her liberal colleagues were claiming it
was Kristallnacht.
If it rains after a liberal washes his car, they say it's a right-wing
dirty trick.
Liberals love nothing more than these constant self-righteous-
athons as if they would ever have the courage to stand up for
any cause not universally supported by everyone around them.

Make a Joyful Noise

Unto the Lord
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 ajoyful 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 family, chosen
in Christ before the foundation of the world, an innumerable
company of saints, redeemed by the blood of Christ our Saviour,
"out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation"
(Revelation 5:9). God's elect are a people called effectually by
the Lord out of all the lands of this world. "But ye are a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you
out of darkness into his marvelous light:" (I Peter 2:9). Here again,
we see that our purpose as the children of God is to show forth His
praise by making ajoyful noise unto the Lord.
I believe that we, the children of God, are to make that joyful
noise at all times in our lives. In most of my prior efforts to talk
about this scripture, my focus has been on the singing of psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs. This verse certainly teaches
that we should sing praises unto our Lord, but I believe it also
declares that we should be actively involved in praising God
in all that we say and do. As we gather in the Lord's church to -
worship Him, what a blessing it is for us to make ajoyful noise
in singing, praying, and preaching. "Blessed is the people that


REBECCA JEAN FULLER
Rebecca Jean (Crews) Fuller, was called home to be with the
Lord on Sat., Oct. 27. She died at home. She was 55.
Born in Miami, Rebecca never met a stranger and particularly
loved children. Her life revolved around service to others through
her many ministries which included music, puppetry, theatre,
youth sports, encouragement of those struggling in their day-to-
day lives, as well as feeding, clothing and sheltering the needy.
Rebecca's family, friends and recipients of her generosity knew
her as someone who always made time for others and sacrificed
much of her own time and energy for their benefit. She became
the definition of Jesus' love to those who knew her best.
Rebecca lived in Gainesville and Bronson before moving to
Jacksonville several years ago to work as a customer service
representative at BellSouth, now AT&T.
Rebecca was a longtime member of Lighthouse Word Church
while living in Levy County.
Among the many who will cherish Rebecca's memory are:
her husband of 28 years, Elwyn Fuller II; sons and daughters-in-
law Elwyn III and Erin and John Paul and Jenny; son Nathan;
brother and sister-in-law Corky and Laurie Crews and niece Katie
Rebecca Crews.
A memorial service was held on Tuesday, October 30 in Murray
Hill Theater at 932 Edgewood South in Jacksonville.
In lieu of flowers, the Fuller family requests that expressions of
sympathy be made to Murray Hill Theatre through Murray Hill
Ministries, P.O. Box 380006, Jacksonville, FL 32205-0506.
Arrangements were under the care of Fraser Funeral Home of
Jacksonville.

MARGARET M. McELROY
Margaret M. McElroy of Chiefland passed away Oct. 24 in
Gainesville. She was 85. Born and raised in Levy County, she
married Rev. Austin McElroy. They resided in Haines City


know the joyful sound:" (Psalm 89:15). This joyful noise or sound
is the message of salvation by grace through the finished work
of our Lord Jesus Christ. It declares His life, death, burial, and
resurrection, and all that was accomplished for His children in
Christ's perfect work that saved His people from their sins. "As
cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country"
(Proverbs 25:25). The joyful noise made by God's family in
declaring the gospel is like cold waters to a thirsty soul. Nothing
is more satisfying to one who is truly thirsty than to have a tall
glass of cold water. Nothing is more satisfying to a little child of
grace that is hungering and thirsting after righteousness than to
hear the gospel, the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.
"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him"
(Colossians 3:17). As we walk in this world, this joyful noise
should accompany our lives. We make this joyful noise with our
feet when we live our lives walking in the Spirit, in obedience to
our Saviour and the teachings of God's word. God's people are
to put on the whole armour of God and have their feet shod with
the preparation of the gospel of peace. Our walk should shout
praises to our God, for He is worthy to be praised. The apostle
Paul instructs the saints at Philippi, "Only let your conversation
be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and
see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand
fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith
of the gospel;" (Philippians 1:27). The word conversation in this
verse is speaking of one's conduct or lifestyle. Paul, by inspiration
of God, is admonishing all of God's children to make a joyful .
noise of praise and thanksgiving unto the Lord by living our lives
according to the gospel of Christ.
May God bless each of us to talk, walk, and live in this world in
a way that brings honor, praise, and glory to Him. "That ye may
be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in
the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine
as lights in the world; (Philippians 2:15). May we always be found
making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

mBUT ANYWAY



.i..t YE. PiuESheffield

H~7~y ~t~r~t~Yow 'PaT~ioit


We rolled up to the little town's summer festival only to find
our band was not scheduled on the main stage. Not surprising,
given Christian groups aren't generally held in high regard at
many events these days.
The event organizer took us off the beaten path a ways to
show us the little section of black-top road he'd picked out for
us out back of an abandoned service station. Across the way
I noticed two lonely souls fanning themselves in a rusty old
concession trailer. They gave us a friendly wave, obviously
glad for the company.
We would be the only band in this line-up, coming on right
after a young girl singing karaoke. She'd kick off right after a
troop of tap dancing grandmas' wearing high heels and sparkly
red, white, and blue leotards. A few details seemed to have
been neglected however, like a P.A. system, or a scheduled
time to set up one!
Thankfully this wasn't our first rodeo. We had our gear
in the trailer, and after a group prayer for more humility,
immediately set about to salvage what we could out of the day.
Then two things happened I will always remember. First, I
got lambasted by one of the eighty-year-old dancing grandmas
for discreetly attempting to set up our equipment in the
background while they aerated the sticky pavement with their
high heeled stomp routine.
I wanted to say, "You realize there's nobody watching
except those two in the concession trailer, right?" However,
since she could probably point that same thing out to me, and
she was now brandishing one of those high heels', I wisely
replied, "Yes ma'am." I even offered to run her antique reel to
reel tape machine while she sang Judy Garland's 'Somewhere
over the Rainbow' two octaves higher than a pining purple
porpoise in puberty.
Next on the agenda, I got lambasted by the dad of that
precious little singing girl. Understandably, he was just
nervous and wanting things to go perfectly. (I could tell by
the way he mouthed cuss words at me and gestured he'd meet
me out back if I didn't sit down.) It might as well have been
the Grand Ole' Opry as far as he was concerned. So to avoid a
ruckus, I sat down and let him savor the moment.
It gave me time to reflect on why I'd let MTV mesmerize
me as a kid. "Huh, huh, huh... that's cool," I'd said, "I'll start
a band and be rich and famous." "Yeah, yeah, yeah," Beavis
agreed, "And we'll get some of those girly models to wax the


hood of our sports cars in a video."
. I never did see those riches. I barely recovered from
spending my last dime converting a Formica counter top into
an electric guitar in my seventh grade shop class. Accounting
for practice and equipment toting time, my average salary as
a musician would total up to about 14 cents a month. Thank
goodness for day jobs.
Oh, and the whole 'famous' thing never really panned out
either. The only people who might possibly ask of me, "Where
are they now?" are some over zealous IRS agents wanting their
cut on that 14 cents. Lastly, there is no such thing as a groupie
with a full set of teeth. Enough said.
Thankfully, I'm okay with all that now. The Lord Jesus has
come into my heart and freed me from all the bitterness I'd
harbored over the years.:
So next time you walk past our band's little lawnmower
trailer stage at the car show, don't waste your time trying
to make me mad by sticking your fingers in your ears and
griping, "You mind cutting that down Buster, I'm on my way
over to the cake walk here?" because I won't. And don't hit me
with that look that says, "You'll never make it as a rock star",
because I already know. What? I'm not bitter. Do you think
I'm bitter?
Nowadays, whether I'm up there crooning to upwards of
17 people, or just the clean up crew, I want you to know I'm
doing it because Jesus loves you. That's right; YOU. It's your
fault. If God says He wants me up there sweating all day just
on the off chance you'll hear me sing something to cause you
to consider Jesus as you stomp off, then that's what I'll do.
You see the Lord has given me a love for you, and I know
He appreciates me trying to show it. Besides, I've learned
God's approval is much more fulfilling than any of the fickle
accolades of that MTV crowd. In the grand scheme of things,
it's what matters most. I hope you've thought about that.
But anyway- maybe all my foolishness is part of God's
master plan, right along with Beavis and the tap dancing
Grannies. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world
to confound the wise; 1 Corinthians 1:27 KVJ I'm okay with
it, really.

SMiss Homey Says...

Here I sit with pen in hand, just as blank as I
can be! My mind won't work, I cannot think. I do
declare it's on the blink. But don't worry I'll be
back. That's the truth. Yes that's a fact.
I'm sitting here, a chair full of love, yes, puppy
love. Is there any other kind?
Friends they come and then they go, but my little ones, they love
so. I can pen them up and leave them alone! But they still love me
when I come back home. Yes, I love them too. End.

Public School

Follies: Y Is for

Yoga
The surgeon general really needs
to slap a health warning on The New
York Times. My blood pressure
increases a few points every time I
read it. This week, the newspaper
of record pimped the Next Great
American Education Fad: In-school yoga classes.
According to the piece, "Less Homework, More Yoga, From a
Principal Who Hates Stress," the head of Needham High School in the
Boston suburbs is pushing "stress reduction" through better stretching
and breathing. Principal Paul Richards, who last earned nationwide
mockery when he ditched publishing the honor roll, is part-Oprah,
part-Deepak Chopra, part-Richard Simmons and all edu-babble.
"it's not that I'm trying to turn the culture upside down," he's quoted
telling the Times. "It's very important to protect the part of the culture
that leads to all the achievement," he said. "It's more about bringing the
culture to a healthier place."
And here I thought high school principals should make schooling,
not "bringing the culture to a healthier place," their top priority. Silly
me. Welcome to your new Nanny State nightmare.
Yoga classes are now a requirement for Needham high school
seniors. To further ease the supposed burden on overworked students,
Richards has "asked teachers to schedule'Tiomework-free weekends and
holidays." Just what we need to turn around those one in 10 schools
that are now considered "dropout factories," huh? Can't cut it in the
classroom? Bend like a bridge, take five deep, slow breaths, and all will
be dandy.
Why stop at yoga? Tantric chanting, here we come. And, hey,
Kabbalah has done wonders for Madonna. Let's add hypnotism and
acupuncture classes while we're at it. Hot stone massages? Bonsai tree-
clipping? No Relaxation Technique Left Behind!
Some point to a number of tragic student suicides to justify larding
up the school day with Tree Poses and Sun Salutations. But the school
officials themselves admit the deaths were not related to stress. No
matter. Richards is using them to forge ahead with "a movement to
push back against an ethos of super-achievement at affluent suburban
high schools amid the extreme competition over college admissions."
It appears there are now more than 40 other high schools and middle
schools that embrace the "Stressed Out Students" agenda. There's
another yoga curriculum popular in California, Yoga Ed., that has
trained 10,000 teachers in more than 100 schools nationwide.
And guess what else I discovered after trying to find out whether
yoga was coming to a school near me? We are paying for this
nonsense. The Yoga Ed. program, created by Hollywood spouse/
socialite Tara Guber, was funded with taxpayer grants from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture and the federal Carol M. White Physical
Education Program.
Bit by bit, the dumbed-down cult of mediocrity, secular extremism
and multicultural madness has infected American public education.
Instead of concentrating on the basics and then teaching children to
manage and conquer their "stress" through internal discipline, we're
removing every last source of possible damage to their egos.
Math test scores have plummeted Solution- Remove the U.S. from
international competrimons.
Students are faitrig-SolotionrHide the honor rolls so the under-
achievers don't feel bad.
Elementary pupils don't like drills and spelling tests. Solution:
Fuzzy math and inventive spelling.
Families can't manage their time. Solution: Less homework, more
yoga.
"A lot of these kids," lectures Principal Richards, "are being held
hostage to the culture." No kidding. When The New York Times
invited one of Richards' students to recommend stress-reduction
techniques, he ended with this suggestion:
"Watch a short clip on YouTube (as long as you are not
addicted). The amazing and often funny feats on the site are
inspiring and often leave you feeling, 'Hey I want to do that!'
This is a great, attitude to have towards your work."
Watch feats of stupidity on YouTube. Yeah, that'll do
wonders for American student achievement.
The only ones who need stress reduction right now are
parents fed up with this runaway idiocy. If you think educrats
are going to recover their senses any time soon, well, you know,
don't hold your breath..

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2007 Page 5


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs., Oct. 25 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It was again visitor's
day, and they always make for a great time. Four
ladies came from Gainesville, two from Dunnellon,
and one from Williston. We will start setting up after
Nov. 15. It takes time to get it all together and we
really look for a great show.
We are now looking for a bluegrass and Gospel
band so we can start having "Pickin' on the Porch."
There can be no drinking, and we hope to keep this
up as long as people come out. We do not pay, but
we feed well. Call 493-2801.
Greg and six boys were out Wed. and what a great
time we had. These boys had not been out for three
weeks and when they went out to find what they
had planted, the onions were up, they found small
pumpkins, the collards and whatever is growing, and
we will soon be eating out of our gardens planted in
the flowerbed.
Lunch was great with corn chowder, kraut,
potatoes, cheese and macaroni, macaroni salad,
greens, cucumber salad, custard pie, rice pudding
and so much more. Twenty people were present.

Chiefland explores

MSD expansion
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
A joint workshop held by Chiefland's commissioners
on Sept. 19 explored the idea of expanding Chiefland's
municipal services district (MSD).
"We would like to see the district expand up to Fanning
Springs," said Grady Hartzog at the late September
commission meeting.
Landowners in that area would have the possibility of
water and sewer, said Hartzog, adding that the expansion
would not affect property taxes.
It's a full service district, said Chiefland City Attorney
Norm Fugate, and explained to the commission, "It will not
be a boundary for law enforcement, as opposed to county
law enforcement."
Fugate added that the MSDs are set by the county, and
changing the district's boundaries will require the county to
do a comprehensive plan amendment.
Now, Chiefland's city officials are preparing for future
growth by finding who they need to annex into this full
service district.
Bill Hammond, Chiefland's planning and zoning manager,
said that at the county's Sept. 25 planning commission
workshop they addressed the concerns and requests of the

"We will need to find some additional methodologies on

(EAR) was reviewed.
Every seven years, the EAR process is a way for the county
to review its comprehensive plan and take inventory as to
which comprehensive plan policies are working and which are
not. They look at the county's long-term future to see where
they are going and to define how they want to get there.
Any changes to the comprehensive plan brought about
through the EAR process are implemented through
a comprehensive plan amendment process between
the county and the State of Florida's Department of
Community Affairs.
The EAR process has also identified some proposed
changes to the county's future land-use map.
When a municipality decides to annex county parcels into
the city, whether the annexation is voluntary or involuntary,
the proposal is sent to the county for their comment, but
this has nothing to do with the county's comprehensive plan
amendment process.
"For instance, if you look at the future land-use map now,
some municipalities have annexed outside the MSD," said Neely.
The MSD is a land-use designation that looks more like
a boundary line drawn around all the municipalities within
Levy County. It is intended to be areas for urban expansion
with which urban densities and intensities are allowed, and
urban services, such as centralized water and sewer, police
protection, fire protection and solid waste collection, are
provided or encouraged to support development.
County-designated land uses permitted within the MSD
boundaries are urban high density residential (12 dwelling
units per acre), urban medium density residential (five
dwelling units per acre), urban low density residential (one
dwelling unit per acre) and commercial.
The purpose of the MSD is to attempt to guide and
direct growth within the county, to create more compact
development that will be closer to existing infrastructure,
such as roads, central water and sewer, and to be closer to
services, such as police, fire and solid waste, which reduces
costs of services.

Five-Year Work Plan In

Final Review
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
Assistant Superintendent Jeff Davis presented the five-
year district facilities work plan to the members of the Levy
County School Board at the mid-October meeting.
Davis reminded the board that the plant survey "drives
every document" and will determine the priority list,
schoolhouse inventory and overall work plan.
"That plant survey pretty much determines what we will
do facility-wise in the district," said Davis.
Members of the Department of Education (DOE) will
arrive in December to begin the plant survey at all of the
Levy County public schools, gathering information for the
validation of the board's Florida School House Inventory
(FISH) report.
"Basically what they are doing is validating our FISH
report," said Davis.
The county is ih the list"y6ar of the fiV\e- ea ryc4le"bf the
work plan, and what is pertinent at the moment is to have all
the needs identified in the survey report.
One of the projects that has been placed both on the new
construction and remodeling lists is the Chiefland High
School cafeteria.
"We put it in both places because if the money does
become available, we don't have to go back and spot survey
it into the plant survey," said Davis.
Norris said that all construction costs must be on the
plant survey in order to receive state funding for any future
projects. "If you're really fortunate enough to have local tax
dollars to fund it, that's different, but I don't ever recall a
time when we've been that fortunate," he added.
On the project priority list, Williston High School's
remodeling was canceled because the DOE wanted to
look only at new projects to fund. "But it will stay on
the survey and will remain on the survey. It's one of the
recommendations we will make to the team when they come
down in February or March," said Davis.
Norris pointed out that the state gives no revenue for pre-
kindergarten construction in the five-year cycle.
To provide an estimate on construction costs, Davis
contacted a couple of contractors. "If you have to ballpark
a classroom, it's between $230,000 and $250,000 per
classroom to build," said Davis, including architectural and
engineering fees.


New Waste Transfer

Station Underway
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
The construction for a new county solid waste transfer
building has been underway since last summer and the
completion date is expected to be in February of 2008.
One of the big advantages of this new facility is that the
employees will now be able to push household garbage
off of the floor directly into tractor trailers parked below.
"Right now, it takes about four people to load the
garbage. With this new building, one man can do all of
it," said Benny Gerrels, the Levy County Solid Waste
Director.
The trash is simply pushed down a large hole and then
exits directly into the tractor trailers, said Gerrels, which
really cut down on manpower and the outdated belt-driven


system.
"When the belt breaks, and then garbage gets in between
the belt and the shaft-it can be really messy business. It's
a lot of aggravation," said Gerrels.

Enterprise Zone Development

Agency To Hold Meeting Nov. 28
The Enterprise Zone Development Agency (EZDA) will
hold its regular November 2007 meeting on Wednesday,
November 28, 2007, 9am at Levy Abstract and Title, 50
Picnic Av, Bronson, FL. The EZDA will not have a December
meeting. Monthly meetings will resume in January 2008. The
public is invited to attend.

Wildcats receive new helmets, learn bike/bus safety


BY LISA STATHAM POSTERARO
My driveway??? That's the #1 place kids have bike
accidents. $45.50 fine??? That's the cost to parents in
Levy County if their children are caught not wearing a
bike helmet, and the state can assign additional fees and
fines when they go to court.
On Friday, October 26 at Safe Kids Day, WES Wildcats
learned all about bicycle and bus safety and went home
with a brand new, FREE bike helmet, thanks to the tireless
efforts of parent volunteer Debora Regan and Shands
at UF. Regan, also the director/ coordinator of Shands
Safe Kids of North Central Florida, procured the funding
through the Florida Department of Transportation to
purchase helmets for each student at WES.
"Show me the peace sign; show me the love. Now
close your fingers and place them above your eyebrows...
that's where your helmet should rest." And so went
the instructions as Debora and her crew of volunteers
undertook the challenge of fitting over 500 students with
the donated helmets.
There was no less than a dozen other parent volunteers,
including Regan's husband Ashley, plus WES staff in the
media center as the shiny helmets were distributed among
the eager, excited students. "Brain injury in children
is reduced by 85% if they wear bicycle helmets," said
Debora, whose son Grant Iverson is a 3rd grader at WES.
Students then learned the ABCs of bicycles air, brakes
and chain and how to ride safely. Debora also explained
the important reasons for wearing helmets as well as
vehicle seat belts. Her statistics made an impression on
her listeners.
"I didn't know two people shouldn't ride on an ATV,"
said 4th grader Milan Patel.
Harrison Love, also a 4th grader, said he now knew to
"keep my helmet forward."
In nearby rooms, other volunteers addressed other
"safe kids" issues. Dekova Batey, bicycle/pedestrian
coordinator for the City of Gainesville, volunteered his
time to talk specifically about the importance of wearing
bike helmets. Dr. Morya Willis, child/passenger educator
at Shands, discussed the danger zones of school buses and
safe behavior in and around the buses.

journalism student, who works at AM 850 WRUF, showed
up to do a feature story on the event, and WCJB-TV 20's
cameras were rolling.
"It was a lot of work to coordinate everything, but it is
so worth it. If we save one child's life or prevent a tragic
accident, it's worth it," said coach Erin Owens, school-
level coordinator of the event. "This labor of love couldn't
have happened without a great group of volunteers," added
Owens. Parents, family and friends who assisted throughout
the morning included Nancy Robinson, Tim Hogan, Mandy
King, Shawn Porter, Malora Holt, Gayle Cash, Brad Mace,
Sandy Snyder, Catrina Sistrunk, Laquwanda Edwards, Tina
Dykstra, Penny Osteen, Andrew Major, Maria Sosa-Lavieri,
Cheryl Hughes, Cathy McCoy and Kristy Barber.
Rosalind Hall, director of exceptional student education
for the School Board of Levy County, represented the county
office. "I am totally dedicated to meeting the needs of our
students and their families, and this was a wonderful service
to our community. Coach Owens and Mrs. Lewis had
invited us, so I just had to come," exclaimed Hall.
Debora encourages all interested parents or other adults
who work with children to contact Safe Kids at their website:

Honoring Our

Veterans at the End

of Life
Americans across the country celebrate Veterans Day
on November 11, a special day of awareness to help all
Americans understand the values, commitment and sacrifices
of our men and women in uniform. It is a time when we pay
tribute to those who have served our country.
Hospice of the Nature Coast stresses that honoring our
nation's veterans includes supporting them throughout their
entire lives, even at the end.
Many Americans might not realize that more than 50,000
veterans die each month; that's roughly 28 percent of all
deaths in the United States.
"Brave men and women in all branches of the service
have made sacrifices and dedicated their lives to peace and
the defense of freedom," said Anthony J. Palumbo, Chief
Executive Officer of Hospice of the Nature Coast. "The
liberty that we, as US citizens, enjoy comes at a price paid
by these valiant men and women."
All Americans should take the opportunity to reflect on
the contributions made by veterans. They are our family
members, neighbors, friends and co-workers and we should
extend our gratitude to them all.
Most hospices provide care for veterans every day. Yet in
many cases, the only time an agency knows they are caring
for a veteran is if the person is enrolled in the VA health care
system, in which only a quarter of all veterans are enrolled.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers
are experienced in caring for the complex needs of these
men and women. Hospice and palliative care providers are
experts in providing compassionate care to people living
with life-limiting illness. Hospice of the Nature Coast
encourages hospices and VAs to work together to best serve
veterans who are dying.
Our nation's veterans have given their last full measure in
service to their country, it is only fitting that we provide the
highest quality of care for them when they are nearing the
end of their lives. If you know a veteran who is in need of
the special care hospice provides, serve them by reaching out
and helping them learn more about care at the end of life.

Bronson Middle School Ends

Football Season 5-1
By STACEY CREWS
SPORTS WRITER
The Bronson Middle School Eagles ended their season in Ocala, where they took a 26-14
win over the St. John Saints to give them a 5-1 season record.
"The Bronson Middle School football team was just one play short of a perfect season"
said head coach Greg Hamilton.
"We had a very exciting season and the community was behind our team all the way. The
pre-game meals, the new uniforms and outstanding parental support helped to make this a
truly memorable season," Hamilton continued, adding, "This group can only expect great
things in the future of Bronson football; it is exciting to be a part of this program."
The young Eagles started out quickly versus the Saints and recovered the onside kick
at their own 42-yard line. The first play from scrimmage was a Ben Landon pass to A.J.
Graham, and the Eagles took a quick 6-0 lead in the game.
Xfter forcing the 'Saints to punt, the Eagles high-powered offense went to work again.
Landon once again found Grahami foi'a 38-yard touchdown pass, giving the Eagles a 12-0
lead.
The Saints took the ensuing kickoff and drove the ball in for a touchdown to pull the
score to Eagles 12 and Saints 6. For the third time in as many possessions with just over one
minute remaining in the first half, the Eagles connected again from Landon to Graham for a
36-yard touchdown to take.an 18-6 lead into halftime.
The Eagles fumbled the football twice in the third quarter, and the Saints were able to
capitalize on one of the fumble recoveries and score a touchdown and a 2-point conversion.
The score was now Eagles 18 and Saints 14.
The young Eagles were pinned back on their own 10-yard line with five minutes
remaining in the game. The Eagles began a drive that would cover 90 yards, topped off
by the fourth connection from Landon to Graham that was good for a 38-yard touchdown.
Tommy Stacey scored the 2-point conversion, and the Eagles ensured their win, 26-14, over
the Saints.
Hamilton was proud of the way his team showed character in their last drive of the season
to preserve the win.
We overcame two large penalties and still drove the ball 90 yards down the field for the
touchdown when we needed it that's character," said Hamilton.
Hamilton also wanted to thank the assistant coaches for all their hard work this season.

Last season, Deonte was a member of the Red Devils
varsity basketball team, and he plans to join them again this season after football ends. Also
as a freshman, he was pitcher for the Red Devils baseball team and played the outfield.
Deonte is a team player in whatever sport he participates, and as only a 10th grader, he is
already being contacted by major Division I colleges.
In the classroom, Deonte is also right on track by maintaining a 3.5 grade-point average,
and his favorite mentor at Williston High School is coach Robert Patterson (affectionately
called Coach P).
"He pushes me to be the best that I can be, not only in athletics but in the classroom as
well," said Deonte.
Deonte is a member of the Spanish Club and the Future Business Leaders of America,
and he attends the Allen Chapel Church, where he sings in the choir with his family.
He is not sure which sport he is ready to pursue at the next level, but only a sophomore,
he has time. Both football and basketball are high on his list right now. He also wants to
see a Red Devil team win a state championship in a major sport before he graduates from
school.
The Levy County Journal would like to congratulate Deonte Welch for being chosen the
Male Student Athlete of the Week.

By STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
Former Williston Lady Red Devil three-sport star Katelyn
Guinsler continues to impress those who are following her
game at the next level.
Guinsler is attending Central Florida Community College
on a softball scholarship, and she is the Patriots' starting

catcher as a freshman and is also in the batting line-up. She
recently hit her first out-of-the-park home run in her college
softball team's fall season. This is her sixth home run.
The Lady Patriots ended their fall season undefeated,
which is a huge step up from last season when they won just
a few games.
Along with doing well academically, Guinsler is enjoying
college life, and she strongly recommends that every high
school student works hard in the classroom and follows their
goals in life. She is proud of the fact that she has been able


to experience college life and says it is a big step up from high school.
Every student athlete who wishes to continue their education after high school should get
the chance to experience college life, said Guinsler. Way to go, Katie Bug!

Red Devils lose to No. 3 North Marion on Senior Night


By STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
Williston Red Devil football is alive and well, even with 3-5 overall and 1-2 district
records. Despite their loss on Friday, the Red Devils were tough competition for the more
experienced North Marion Colts, who took the win 33-23.
The 10-point defeat was by North Marion's senior-heavy, state-ranked No. 3 team in
class 3A, proving the Red Devils have the potential to be the
most dangerous 3-5 team in the state of Florida.
The Red Devils chose to be in the 3A class, when they
qualify to play in the 2A class, and looking down the rosters
for the two teams that were on the field Friday night at
Booster Stadium will show you why the Red Devils are still
a threat.
For the winner, North Marion, there are 51 players listed,
of which 25 are seniors and 19 are juniors. That makes 44
of their 51 players upperclassmen, and half of those are
experienced seniors.
For the entire game, even when leading 33-7 with just 9 r
minutes to play in the game, the Colts' coaching staff chose '
to keep their starters on the field. I
The Red Devils scored only 10 fewer points in the
game with 36 players dressed and on the roster. Of these
36 players, 18, or half, of the players are freshman and
sophomores, and on defense, seven of the 11 players were w h

from this group of underclassmen going against the senior-laden team for four quarters.
On the offensive side, the quarterback and several linemen were seniors. The rest of the
players were juniors, sophomores and an occasional freshman.
This Red Devil team is very young; yet trailing 33-7 with just over eight minutes
remaining, they drove the ball right down the throat of the North Marion defense to score a
touchdown on a 4-yard run by junior Chris Morrow. Then the Red Devils secured the 2-point
conversion on a run by junior Travis Evans, bringing them to Red Devils 15 and Colts 33.
The Red Devils were not finished, even though there
was just over two minutes left in the game. The Red Devils
recovered the onside kick and drove down the field again.
This time the Red Devils went through the air. Two passes
from Timmons to James, and the Red Devils had another
touchdown.
It was at this point the North Marion team had two
unsportsmanlike penalties moving the ball to the 1-yard line'
for the 2-point conversion. Timmons kept the ball and added
2 points, making the score Red Devils 23 and Colts 33.
With just one minute remaining, the North Marion team
got the ball to preserve the 33-23 win.
S. e- Despite the loss, these young and talented Red Devil
-. athletes are building a championship team.
The Red Devils will try to pull their district record even

Indians Keep


Playoff Hopes


Alive

By KATELYN GUINSLER
SPORTS WRITER
Under first-year head coach Ajay Ulmer, the improved
Chiefland Indians football team kept their playoff hopes
alive with an 18-10 win at P.K. Yonge.
The win kept the Indians, who started district play at 0-2,
from total elimination with next week's game looming big.
The P.K. Yonge Blue Waves trailed the entire way in
the game despite a brilliant performance by running back
Dre Maddox. The senior running back touched the football
about 40 times including kickoffs and punt returns, and he
responded with over 300 total yards for the Blue Wave.
On the other hand, the Indians played one of their best
games of the season. Their first touchdown was called back
on a holding penalty, but the Indians responded with a
Daniel Galpin to Tommy Sheffield 30-yard pass for the first
score of the game that stayed on the board for a 6-0 lead.
On their next possession, the Blue Wave went to the air,
and Chiefland's Easton McGinty picked off the ball and
raced 60 yards for the Indians' second touchdown of the first
quarter. Both extra-point tries were no good for the Indians,
but they held a 12-0 lead with over five minutes remaining
in the first quarter.
The Blue Wave went to Maddox on their next possession,
and he picked up big yardage on five runs and one pass
reception, as he scored with just over one minute remaining
in the first quarter. The kick was good, and the score was
now 12-7 with the Indians still in front.
It was a fumble that cost the Blue Wave a scoring
opportunity in the second quarter. The Indians recovered the
Blue Waves' fumble, and Stephen Davis romped 28 yards
for the Indians' third touchdown in the first half. It was now
18-7 as the Indians could not convert another extra-point try.
As the first half was winding down, the Blue Waves Grant
Patterson kicked a 30-yard field goal to put the score a? 1'-
10 as the first half ended.
The scoring in the game stopped with the end of the first
half.
The Blue Wave moved the ball deep into Indians'
territory but came away empty each time. On their last
drive, the Blue Wave fumbled their chances at the 20-yard
line, and the Indians recovered the ball and ran out the clock
for the win.
The Indians will play their last home game of the regular
season Friday night as they host Union County. Game time
is 7:30 p.m.

Finesse Fishing in Shallow Water

By Skeet Reese

One of the many great things about fishing is that presents endless possibilities. Pretty
much everyone takes to the water with a single goal in mind: to catch fish. Some people use
artificial lures, other use bait; but within these two types of fishing lie a multitude of options
for getting more fish in the boat.
This time of year, a lot of the bass are in shallow water for a couple of different reasons.
First, they are chasing shad, which are spawning in the backs of coves. Second, as the nights
get cooler, the surface temperature,of the water is also cooling down. So, when the sun does
rise, the first water to be warmed the most is the shallow water. There's a lot of ways to fish
the these shallow bass this time of year, but one that is sometimes overlooked is a finesse
approach.
When most bass anglers think of shallow-water bass fishing, most of them think of
shallow-running crankbaits, big Texas-rigged plastic worms or flipping a jig. All are very
effective, but these techniques have used for so long, why not switch it up?
Two of my favorite finesse techniques for catching shallow fish are the drop shot and the
wacky rigged soft bait. Most people think of the drop shot as a deep-water technique, but by
adjusting the distance in between your hook and your weight you can fish this bait extremely
shallow.
For drop shot, I use a 7-foot medium-action spinning rod and an Abu Garcia spinning reel
spooled with 8-pound Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon line. Fluorocarbon line is important in
this technique because it is less visible underwater. I like a small octopus hook or wide-gap
hook tied to the line with a Palomar knot. Leave about 8-10 inches of line below your hook
and attach a /4-oun'ce drop shot weight.
A Green Pumpkin Berkley Gulp! Sinking Minnow and a Berkley PowerBait Hand Pour
Finesse Worm are two great drop shot baits. Cast the baits near areas likely to hold bass in
ambush (around structure, primary depth changes) and shake the rod tip. By shaking the rod
tip, you keep the bait in the strike zone but are moving it just enough to make it look alive. If
you don't get bit, drag the weight a few feet and start over.
Another effective method for shallow bass in clear water is a wacky rigged soft bait like a
Berkley PowerBait Fat Dover Crawler. The wacky system allows you to keep the bait in the
strike zone longer and it creates a lot more action with the bait. If you rig a bait straight and
you twitch it once, it is going to easily move 2-3 feet away from any fish within the strike
zone. With the wacky system, it creates a lot more resistance in the water. It pushes the
water more and makes the worm kick, giving you a lot more movement out of it. That extra
movement out of a little worm creates a lot of strikes.

For me, my wacky rigging equipment consists of a 7-foot spinning rod with 8- or 10-
pound Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon line. As far as hooks go, I use a wacky rig hook: a short-
shank, wide-gap hook with round bends. Just stick the hook point through the eggs sack (or
thickest portion) of the bait and weight the bait with tungsten nail weights, but you could
even use an actual finish nail if you have trouble finding nail weights.
This time of year is a great time to go after bass. There is a lot less boat traffic and the
bass are largely congregating wherever there is an easy meal. Try a little finesse the next
time you go chasing fish into the backs of coves and see how slowing down and downsizing
your tackle can result in more strikes and bigger fish.

Recreational Gulf Red Snapper

and South Region Spotted Sea Trout

Seasons Close Nov. 1

'The recreational harvest seasons for red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico and spotted sea
trout in the South Region will close on Nov. 1. These closures occur each year to help
rebuild over-fished red snapper stocks in the Gulf and maintain the abundance of spotted sea
trout in Florida waters.
The harvest and possession of red snapper by sport fishers is prohibited beginning Nov. 1
in all Gulf waters. The reopening date for next year's Gulf red snapper sport season has not
been formally established; however, it is likely to be in late spring 2008.
New regulations for Gulf red snapper are being developed by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission and federal fisheries managers. These regulations should
be finalized by February 2008.
For spotted sea trout, all harvest and possession is prohibited from Nov. 1 through Dec.
31 in the South Region. This area includes all waters south of the Flagler-Volusia counties
line in the Atlantic and south of a line running due west from the westernmost point of Fred
Howard Park Causeway, which is about 1.17 miles south of the Pinellas/Pasco counties line
in the Gulf.

Deer Present Unique Challenges to Drivers


October through December is the high season for car crashes with deer. Each year, car collisions
with deer account for more than 150 human and nearly one and a half million deer fatalities. Experts
attribute it to the combination of deer meeting and migration habits and shortened daylight hours.
* Scan a wide swath of the roadside. Slow down when approaching a deer standing near the side of
a road and be prepared. If startled, the deer can bolt onto the road and into your path. If necessary,
honk your horn and flash your lights to try to scare it away.
* In many instances, it is best not to swerve around the deer since the deer may move in the same
direction. You may also inadvertently hit another vehicle of go off onto a dangerous shoulder. Unless
certain of those road factors, it is often best to simply brake and continue in your lane of traffic.


* Be particularly careful at dawn and dusk and when driving either over a hill or around a curve,
where visibility is limited. Use your high beams to give you a greater are of visibility and allow
you to see the deer's eyes sooner.
* Dear whistles or ultrasonic deer avoidance systems attached to vehicles have never been proven to
work by independent studies and may give drives a false sense of security.
* Take deer crossing signs seriously, particularly those installed specifically for this time of year. Be
particularly cautions in wooded and agricultural areas where there is little distance between the
road and the woods.

Bathroom Renovations Can Boost

Home Value

The past five years have seen an explosion in home improvements. Homeowners
continue to look for new, creative ways. to bring more space, style and luxury to their
everyday lives by remodeling and renovating. For many who choose to renovate, the
question becomes: "Where do we invest our limited resources and how will remodeling
ultimately affect our home's value?" While there's no guarantee that remodeling now
will add to future resale value, statistics show that some projects yield a better return
than others. Consumers can generally expect to get a greater return in remodeling their
bathroom than they would with other room upgrades: The 2006 Cost vs. Value Report
from Remodeling magazine showed that the average return on a mid-range bathroom
remodel is 85 percent. So how do you ensure that the money you do spend remodeling
your bathroom maximizes your investment? Selecting the right materials is the key. For
example, one way to make a bathroom seem more spacious without knocking down
walls and starting over is to install a glass shower enclosure. Whether renovating a small
bathroom or upgrading a larger room, clear glass shower enclosures dramatically open up
the space and showcase the
luxurious materials chosen
for your shower surround.
Protecting your investment
is also important. Recently, RAND NEW
one of the largest glass
manufacturers in the world, Starting at only $139,900 !
introduced the first and
only permanently protected
shower glass. The surface

NOTICE OF PROPOSED
RULES:
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, Chapters
40D-1, 40D-2 and 40D-4,
Florida Administrative Code.
Summary of Proposed Rules:
Chapter 40D-1. Procedural:

the First Amendment to the
Well Construction Agreement

the Marion County Health
Department.
The amendment of Rule 40D-
1.603, F.A.C., Permit Application
Procedures, eliminates the
requirement to submit multiple

application forms if application
for a permit is submitted through
the District's on-line permitting
process.
The amendment of Rule 40D-
1.659, F.A.C., Forms and
Instructions, incorporates by
reference revisions .to the
Water Use Permit Application
forms to require business entity
applicants to identify the type of
business entity and the name
and title of the person signing
the application on behalf of the
business entity applicant, and
to attach documentation of the
business entity's authority to do
business in the state of Florida.
The rulemaking will ensure that
Water Use Permits are issued
accurately to business entities
authorized to do business in
Florida.
Chapter 40D-2. Water Use
Permits:
Amendment of Rule 40D-2.091,
F.A.C., Publications Incorporated

provide greater flexibility for
conceptual ERP permits by
reducing the level of application
detail required and extending the
duration of conceptual permits.

action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant
at the address indicated above
at the time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a petition
within the appropriate time
period shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to request
an administrative determination
(hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding
initiated by another party) will
be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing
of a motion in compliance with
rule 28-106.205 of the Florida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the
Department's action is based
must contain the following
information:
(a) The name, address,
and telephone number of each
petitioner; the Department
permit identification number and
the county in which the subject
matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner received
notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's substantial
interests are affected by
the Department action;
(d) A statement of the
material facts disputed
by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner contends
warrant reversal or modification
of the Department action;
(f) A statement of which rules or
statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification
of the Department action; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action that the
petitioner wants the Department
to take.
A petition that does not dispute
the material facts on which the
Department's action is based
shall state that no such facts are
in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as
set forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301. I ,
Because the administrtive
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means
that the Department's final
action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial
interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the
Department have the right to
petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set forth
above.
Mediation under section
120.573 of the Florida Statutes
is not available for this
proceeding.
The application is available

AGRICULTURAL
WATCH PROGRAM


SHERIFF
JOHNNY SMITH


Hello and welcome to Your Sheriff's Corner. On October 22, Sergeant Scott Finnen and I
met with the Levy County Cattlemen and Landowners Association at the Whitehurst Lodge.
This meeting was very successful with over 100 people in attendance. The main focus was
the Agriculture Watch Program. This program will facilitate communication between local
farmers and law enforcement.
I invite you to become a Charter member of our Ag Watch family. We understand the needs
of the farm community and would like to service it on a little more personal level. We are
starting two new programs at the Sheriff's Office: first will be the "AG WATCHES program"
and second will be the Owner Applied Number system. These exciting new programs will be
the first in an expanding program catering to the farm community. As always, I look forward
to serving your needs now and in the future.
Sincerely,


"Agricultural Watch" Program
In the wake of a number of high profile cases that have had a direct impact on the
agriculture industry, the Sheriff's Office recognized the need to allow deputies immediate
access to landowner information to enforce a "zero tolerance" stance for crimes committed
against agriculture. Agriculture Watch Program has been embraced by the Florida Sheriff's
Association as a model program on a statewide basis.
The program was developed as a means to identify ownership of agricultural properties in
Levy County. The program consists of a "No Trespassing" sign listing the property/business
owner's name and a code number, which provides deputies on patrol instant access to owner
information and agent/lease agreements.
How do I participate in the Agriculture Watch Program?
This program is open to qualified Agri-businesses or persons whose interest is in, and
limited to, agriculture-related activities. The metal signs will be available, and if you are
interested in participating in the program please contact Sheriff Smith or Sgt. Scott Finnen,
at 352.486.5111.
Get your owner applied number Available Now
The Levy County Sheriff's Office Agricultural Crimes Unit is proud to announce the
establishment of the Owner Applied Number system as a property/equipment marking program.
In the past, the recognized statewide system of marking equipment was the FLO number.
The Florida Sheriff's Association recognized this program but over the last several years the
program has been abandoned. As a result, the Florida Sheriff's
Association no longer maintains the program. As a more viable
system, we have established the Owner Applied Number or
OAN system in Levy County. Our goal is for OAN to be the
statewide recognized marking system.
The OAN System consists of eight characters, which
identify the state, county, and business. The coded
identification number allows local law enforcement to
identify stolen property and contact the owner. OAN's are
stamped in several locations on heavy equipment and other
Agri-business assets and may be affixed by metal die stamps,
indelible ink, branding iron or electric pencils.
OAN, which was developed by the FBI, has its own field
in both the Florida Crime Information Center (FCIC) and the
National Crime Information Center (NCIC) records. OAN,
by design, is a supplemental means of identification to the
manufacturer's,factory I.D. numbers.
The Agriculture Watch program will be the cornerstone of
the Levy County Sheriff's Office dedication and commitment
to building a stronger relationship between the Agriculture
community and law enforcement. Anyone interested in the
Ag Watch program can call Sgt. Scott Finnen 352-486-5111,
extension 247, or email agwatch@levyso.com.
