Sewage sludge and its contaminants have no regard
for political boundaries. That's why Levy County
commissioners want to get involved in a plan to dispose of
sewage sludge just across its border in Alachua County near
the City of Archer.
The sludge comes from Gainesville Regional Utilities,
which plans to buy a farin near the Alachua County border
with Levy County for disposal of the waste. The Alachua
County Health Department supports the plan and says it is
safe.
Levy County commissioners have not gotten involved
but plan to after hearing from a resident Tuesday at the
commission meeting.
Victor Pisarri, who lives near the farm, does not
accept GRU's statement that class B sewage sludge is
harmless. Class B sewage sludge is a byproduct of waste
treatment and contains live pathogens. It also may contain
contaminants such as heavy metals.
GRU has been calling the sewage material biosolids,
Pisarri said.
"Sludge is sludge, no matter what you change the name
to," he said.
Pisarri noted that many years ago, Alachua County put its
landfill near the border of Levy County and now wants to
dispose of its sewage nearby.
GRU Wvants to buy the farm of more than 1,400 acres for
$11.5 million to use as a disposal site. The farm belongs to
Roger Williams, who has used GRU's waste byproducts as
fertilizer for many years.
GRU must get permits from Alachua County for the
new disposal project. GRU conducted a public meeting in
October in Alachua County and has another scheduled for
Dec. 11 at the Alachua County Commission meeting room
to discuss the project.
Levy County Commissioner Tony Parker said the
disposal project could have a negative impact on the county.
"I'd be willing to go (to the meeting) and represent Levy
County," he said.
Commission Chair Sammy Yearty asked the county
Planning Department to get with the county attorney to see
what options the county has and to express its concerns.

Otter Creek's Town Council members (left to right) Russell Meeks Jr., Marie Murray, Lois B

Otter Creek Town Council Yankeetown


Suspends City Clerk
BY DAVE GRIFFITHS
Stcff Write
In a special council meeting Monday night, the Otter Creek town council agreed
unanimously to suspend Dennis Harold Russell, Otter Creek Town Clerk, without pay,
effective immediately, in the wake of his arrest.
Dennis Harold Russell, on the advice of his attorney, turned himself in to the Levy
County Sheriff's Department on Mon., Oct. 29. Officials subsequently arrested and charged
Russell on one count of capital sexual battery on a child under 12 years of age, and one
count of sexual battery on a child between the ages of 12 and 18. Mr. Russell is presently
incarcerated pending bail.
Otter Creek's empty city clerk chair is causing its town council other headaches. Mayor
William Burris, acting within his authority as mayor, has been performing the city clerk's
duties. However, the town's city clerk also acts as its elections clerk. Because Mayor Burris
is running for reelection to the town council, he cannot perform the duties of the election
clerk. (Among the election clerk's duties is determining qualified voters.) Consequently,
the council formulated and unanimously approved a primary plan, and in case it cannot be
implemented, an alternative plan. With the election two weeks away, the council is under
significant time pressure to fill the position. The council also approved advertising the town
clerk's position hoping to fill it on a temporary basis. A permanent solution to the empty
town clerk chair rests, presently, on the outcome of Mr. Russell's trial.
The council tabled discussions and action on Mr. Russell's position as Otter Creek's fire
chief until the next regular meeting.

Yankeetown Residents Vote for Stronger

Council and More Land-Use Authority
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Voters approved 11 changes to the Yankeetown in the election last week, most aimed at giving
more power to voters, reducing the power of the mayor and strengthening the council.
Some of the referendum items on the Oct. 30 ballot make the approval of high-density
development more difficult.
Most were approved by a margin of more than 60 percent.
Mayor Dawn Clary, elected for a second term in the Oct. 30 election, said some of the referenda

Elections


BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
While incumbents claimed sweeping victories in
Yankeetown's Oct. 30 election, another big winner not
specifically mentioned on the ballot was grass-roots
democracy.
With a voter turnout of 71 percent, Yankeetown can claim
to be a highly active and politically involved community.
"The electoral turnout would be considered very high,"
said Bert Swanson, University of Florida professor of
political science. "Such a turnout is considered very
democratic" especially for a nonpresidential.election year.
Florida Department of State Division of Elections
officials who came from Tallahassee to observe the elections
also were impressed by the high turnout.
With solid turnout and a nearly two-to-one margin
for three incumbents, voters likely approved of the job
performance of these candidates and the status quo, Swanson
said in an e-mail.
Mayor Dawn Clary defeated challenger James Petrovich
191 to 123 votes, with 61 percent of the votes. In the race for
two council seats, council members Larry Feldhusen, with
196 votes, and Norm Shannahan, with 195 votes, defeated
challengers Eleanor Berkley, with 123 votes, and Kerry
Hayes, with 114 votes, with each winner taking about 62
percent.
Voter turnout was high, with 318 of the 447 registered
voters casting ballots.
The campaigns were marked by heated allegations that
the mayor and council members had botched the planning of
a new water treatment plant and the purchase of property to
support it. But an underlying issue of the campaigns was the
incumbents' steadfast rejection of high-density development
along the Withlacoochee River planned by Izaak Walton
Investors and a related company, Sherwood Partners LLC.
Clary, Feldhusen and Shannahan won their previous

Bronson Town Council Reconvenes
After Month Off
By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
At the Monday night Bronson Town Council meeting, council member Melody La Flam wanted to
know why the Levy County Fire Advisory Board at their last workshop received information that the
City of Bronson wanted the county to take over their fire department.
Vice Mayor Beatrice Mongo said that County Coordinator Fred Moody had talked to the city about
the takeover more than a year ago.
"If you don't know what is going on in your own department, how do you think that makes me
feel," said La Flam, wondering why she had been left out of the loop of information that the county
received, as the city's fire department falls under her jurisdiction.
La Flam also cited in her report that she noticed a tanker stealing water on Sept. 17 and that
because she contacted other members of the council she hoped that she had not violated any Sunshine
Laws. "My intent was to protect the town's only source of revenue."
Frank Darabi, from Darabi and Associates, gave his assessment of the city's sewer problem and
suggested that they should "act now" as it will be much more expensive down the road. He has helped
many smaller communities in the same situation.
"It is critical to have the proper regulations in place," said Darabi, adding that some of the user fees
could be recouped at a later time. Council member Berlon Weeks made the motion, which passed
unanimously, to advertise for other engineers who might have interest in expanding the sewer plant.
Vendor Ed Kell is currently paying a $5-a-day fee to sell his produce in town. Barbara Bass, owner
of Flamingo Produce, stated her case and wanted him to have to pay for the same licensing that her
operation requires, such as the $155 state fee she pays.
Kell said that his stand does not require a license because he is a grower and that entitles him to
sell produce without a license, and the real reason he was at the meeting was to dispute the $5-a-day
fee that adds up to $1,040 a year.
Town Clerk Donna Conquest suggested the fee can cover 48 hours and the ordinance needs to be
revised, but because there is currently no town attorney, it cannot be done. The issue was tabled until
a time when legal council can make a ruling.
Michelle Hagen, a representative from the Levy County Humane Society, made her presentation to
have a county music event at the Bronson recreational park to raise money for Sleepy Creek Farms,
the new location for the LCHS.
Hagen wanted to have beer sales at the event and was told by the events promoters that "beer sales
would quadruple your ticket sales." She received approval to use the park; however, the issue of beer
sales was tabled.
Jimmy Durden, head of the Bronson Youth League, made his plea to the city and residents of
Bronson to get behind the city's youth teams and vied for support from everyone. Council member
Aaron Edmondson said that he would work with Durden and that "things need to be worked out
between the city and the youth league."

County Coordinator Fred
Moody held the workshop
to discuss fire-related issues
and to receive input from
the many volunteer fire
departments countywide.
Members of the Fire
Advisory Board, have
formed a response
con'tte, as f lat April
to make recommendations;
however, Bloom said some
of the county's departments
have been reluctant in
providing information.
"Ninety-nine percent of
the time we feel like there
should be some critical
needs coming from these fire
departments, but we don't
get a response," said Bloom.
From looking at the
percentage analysis of calls
that have come in that are
receiving responses, Bloom
said that Otter Creek, Gulf
Hammock and Rosewood
are high on the priority list.
"We've added South Levy
to the list, including all the
rural areas," said Bloom.
Bloom said that he
hopes to bring back a solid
recommendation by the
middle of January, and
that consolidation of the
county's fire departments
would be a solution to
receiving information from
departments and would help
to strengthen fire response
throughout the county.
"We are going to have
to consolidate some of the
departments, and eventually
all of the departments in this
county. That would be our
ultimate goal to be one
department countywide,"
said Bloom.
Cedar Key Fire Chief
James McCain said that it
is particularly hard to keep
people motivated to remain
involved in the training,
especially when many
members of their volunteer
fire department have limited
time and have day jobs.
In Levy, the only paid
personnel are in Chiefland
and Williston, so many
departments are unmanned
during the workday.
Moody said, "With the
training requirements that
you now have, compared
to then, you now have a
different liability."

Stop "Making

A Difference"

BY THOMAS SOWELL
TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES



Among the many mindless mantras of our time, "making a difference" and "giving back"
irritate me like chalk screeching across a blackboard.
I would be scared to death to "make a difference" in the way pilots fly airliners or brain
surgeons operate. Any difference I might make could be fatal to many people.
Making a difference makes sense only if you are convinced that you have mastered the
subject at hand to the point where any difference you might make would be for the better.
Very few people have mastered anything that well beyond their own limited circle of
knowledge. Even fewer seem to think far enough ahead to consider that question. Yet hardly
a day goes by without news of some uninformed busybodies on one crusade or another.
Even the simplest acts have ramifications that spread across society the way waves
spread across a pond when you drop a stone in it.
Among those who make a difference by serving food to the homeless, how many have
considered the history of societies which have made idleness easy for great numbers of
people?
How many have studied the impact of drunken idlers on other people in their own
society, including children who come across their needles in the park if they dare to go to
the parks?
How many have even considered such questions relevant as they drop their stone in the
pond without thinking about the waves that spread out to others?
Maybe some would still do what they do, even if they thought about it. But that doesn't
mean that thinking is a waste of time.
"Giving back" is a similarly mindless mantra.
I have donated money, books and blood for people I have never seen and to whom I owe
nothing. Nor is that unusual among Americans, who do more of this than anyone else.
But we are not "giving back" anything to those people because we never took anything
from them in the first place.
If we are giving back to society at large, in exchange for all that society has made
possible for us, then that is a very different ballgame.
Giving back in that sense means acknowledging an obligation to those who went before
us and for the institutions and values that enable us to prosper today. But there is very little
of this spirit of gratitude and loyalty in many of those who urge us to "give back."
Indeed, many who repeat the "giving back" mantra would sneer at any such notion
as patriotism or any idea that the institutions and values of American society have
accomplished worthy things and deserve their support, instead of their undermining.
Our educational system, from the schools to the universities, are actively undermining
any sense of loyalty to the traditions, institutions and values of American society.
They are not giving back anything except condemnation, often depicting sins common to
the human race around the world as peculiar evils of "our society."
A classic example is slavery, which is repeatedly drummed into our heads in the
Schools and in the media as something unique done by whiie .people to black people in the
United States.
The tragic fact is that, for thousands of years of recorded history, people of every race
and color have been both slaves and enslavers.
The Europeans enslaved on the Barbary Coast of North Africa alone were far more
numerous than all the Africans brought to the United States and to the 13 colonies from
which it was formed.
Whatwas unique about Western civilization was that it was the first civilization to turn
against slavery, and that it stamped out slavery not only in its own societies but in other
societies around the world during the era of Western imperialism.
That process took well over a century, because non-Western societies resisted. White
people, as well as black people, were still being bought and sold as slaves, decades after the
Emancipation Proclamation freed blacks in the United States.
Those who want to "give back" should give back the truth. It is a debt that is long
overdue.

Pinked: Faking the Hate,

Manufacturing the News


BY MICHELLE MALKIN
CREATOR'S SYNDICATE, INC.
You don't have to be a Harvard University researcher
to figure out that the media is infected with liberal bias -
or to realize that some left-wing journalists will use any
means necessary to create ideological narratives that fit their
worldview. The Rathergate debacle at CBS News involving
faked National Guard memos to smear President Bush was an
extreme example. But if you look closely, you'll find everyday
examples of Serious Journalists manufacturing the news and
concocting social crises.
Amazingly, they always manage to make conservatives look racist, intolerant and evil.
Funny how that works.
On Monday, the local Fox affiliate in Birmingham, Ala., blew the whistle on an ABC
News sting operation intended to elicit bigoted responses from local residents. The national
ABC News program "Primetime Live" hired actors to pose as same-sex couples and engage
in public displays of affection on a park bench. Birmingham police department sources told
the Fox affiliate about the social experiment; a local merchant spotted an RV where the ABC
crew was stationed. The merchant was told "ABC was working on a week-long project to
see how people would react... A FOX6 news reporter approached the RV and talked with
an 'actor' who said, 'Yes, we, are working for ABC News.'"
Welcome to Media Theatrics 101. Instead of simply interviewing folks in the South or
staking out real gay couples, ABC News thinks it's fair and objective to stage-manage social
experiments and call it journalism. Next thing you know, they'll hire celebrity prankster
Ashton Kutcher to jump out and yell, "You just got Punk'd!" as passers-by get ensnared
and-ABC News hopes- exhibit the signs of prejudice they are so sure exist in Southerners.
Does this politically correct set-up sound familiar? It should. Last spring, I exposed a
similar news media production engineered by NBC's "Dateline," which recruited Muslim
males to be sent to sports events and NASCAR races in the South and across the heartland
to expose fans as anti-Muslim, anti-Arab bigots. Yes, the same program and network that
were humiliated for faking GM pick-up truck explosions attempted to manufacture another
crisis to give "Dateline's" talking heads yet another opportunity to furrow their brows, shake
their heads and win more Emmy awards.
My readers offered their own news sting ideas:
"I wonder if they would consider sending a professor wearing an 'I Love W' button and
an American flag pin into the faculty lounge at Harvard or some other liberal ivory tower
with a hidden camera. I would love to see that experiment."
"Perhaps when I get back from deployment, you can follow me around Seattle and see
how I get treated wearing my Navy uniform ... "
"Why don't you set up some white guy with hidden cameras, put a George Bush T-shirt
on him and have him walk down a street in Pakistan. Or, better yet, have him walk down a
street in Detroit. I'll just bet you could get a lot of bigoted reactions ...
"Wear a pro-life T-shirt to a Women's Studies class." Or a "Marriage Is Between One
Man, One Woman" T-shirt to The New York Times newsroom. .
For ma left-wing do-gooders in the media, the ideological end exposing Amerca
as an ir mably racist, sexist, homophobic, elitist natiol- justifiesl e'sieanhiamficVred
means. That destructive philosophy has manifested itself on countless college campuses,
where professors and students alike have been caught cooking up fake hate crimes to show

how racist our society is.
On Monday, in a separate but rather related incident, a student journalist/College
Democrat at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., admitted that she had
drawn swastikas on her own dorm room door. Sarah Marshak signed a confession, according
to campus officials, after security cameras caught her in the act. Her campus publication,
The Hatchet, said she told the staff that she "only drew the final three of six swastikas on her
door in an attempt to highlight what she characterized. as GW's inaction."
It's a short leap from hoax crimes to hoax news. Marshak could get expelled, but there
may yet be an opening for her at the stage production unit of ABC News, NBC News or
CBS News.
The de facto dinosaur network news motto, after all, is "All the news that's fit to stage."

The Right Mind

"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who,
being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with
God: But made himselfofno reputation, and took upon him the
form ofa servant, and was made in the likeness ofmen: And
being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself and became
obedient unto death, even the death of the cross" (Phil. 2: 5-8).
He that humbled Himself the lowest, God exalted the highest.
He Wal lifted from the cross to the same glory that He had with
His Father before the world was. "Let this mind be in you'which
was in Christ Jesus." What was the mind in Christ Jesus? It is
worthy of imitation. It was His mind to make for Himself no
reputation, and take upon Himself the form of a servant. He
(Christ) loved a servant's place. And though He was the Son of the
Highest, He preferred to call Himself the Son of man. He humbled
Himself into the lowest place, where He put His everlasting arm
underneath helpless sinners and lifted them so high that he was
not ashamed to call them brethren. This brought Jesus nigh to
sinners and sinners nigh to Jesus. Being made in the likeness
of men did not make Jesus a sinner; He did not associate with
sinners because He loved their sins. The mind in Jesus was one of

people to see, places to be, goals to meet, deadlines, everything

from the boss about clocking in late.
"Come on people," I grumble, "Can we pick it up here?" I
stomp the gas and whip sharply into the fast lane; striving to get
ahead of the crowd you know, always looking to slice out another
few feet of open road.
This time there's a raking of steel, and I'm spinning. My coffee
is in my lap. I realize my tires and I are both screaming.
I've clipped the front of a small truck riding in my blind spot.
Off into the median I go, out of control, whirling into oncoming
traffic. The last thing I remember is a chrome grill, and the word

obedience to His Father. This was His meat and His drink.
Jesus manifested no selfish love or purpose. Instead of seeking
after vain glory, He hid His greatness from the wise and prudent
of this world, but revealed Himself to babes in His kingdom.
Paul says, not only to the church at Philippi, but to all the
children of God, "Let this mind be in you." In the prime sense,
"this mind", the same that was in Christ Jesus, is the gift of
God, independent of human effort. Those who have not eternal
life cannot have this mind; for there must be a spiritual man to
possess a spiritual mind. The natural man can possess only a
natural mind, till eternal life has been given to him. Then he also
possesses a spiritual mind, the gift of God through Jesus Christ
our Lord.

strengthened in pbdinetoee the law of the spirit:of life by-them
who possess eternal life. It is put on by profession and manifested
by the life we live in Christ. "Let this mind be in you." This was
an exhortation, signifying that it was needful that they make
some effort toward that end, lest they should fail to show forth
the praise of Him who called them out of darkness into His
marvelous light. This right mind is the mind of love to God and
of goodwill to men, especially to the brethren. "Let this mind be
in you", is much like the words, "Let brotherly love continue."
Rather than to hinder this love, we should labor to promote it;
For the redeemed there is consolation in Christ, and a comfort
of love in the service and worship of God. The obedient enjoy


'MACK'.
Suddenly I'm standing in line. Up ahead, atop the hill stands
the gates of an immensely beautiful city. Merry sounds of singing
and laughing spill over its jewel-encrusted walls. I can hardly wait
to get in and join the party. I considered skipping to the front, but
think better of it, remembering my last attempt.
Some folks seem so excited they can hardly stand it, while
others bite their nails and desperately rehearse the little excuses
they've hastily thrown together. Behind me a fellow keeps glaring
angrily at me. He looks a lot like the guy driving the little truck
I'd clipped.
As we draw closer I catch a glimpse of the gate keeper.
Something seems vaguely familiar about him as well. Maybe it's
his swagger, or the way he carouses around with his hands on his
hips like some gunslinger from the old West. "Hey," I realize,
"That's George Bush!"
Suddenly I'm standing before him. "Mr. President," I campaign,
"You don't know how glad I am to see someone up here I
recognize."
"W" just stuck out his top lip like he does when he's stumped.
"Partner," he replied, "eh eh eh... I don't believe I recognize you.
What'd you say your name was?"
"It's Guy Sheffield," I replied, then turning to the angel
thumbing through a little book, "Two F's, like the baseball
player." After a long moment, the angel shook his head solemnly. I
felt the color leave my cheeks.
On cue, two little secret service imps in dark shades appeared
from a steamy hole in the ground. My flesh began to crawl. "Did I
mention I voted for you?"
The imps latched on to my elbows and began to escort me
down. "Wait, wait..." I blubbered, "I believed in you! I believe in
you George!"
The President just shook his head and leaned across the
podium, "Even the devil believes in me son. But he won't be
sipping tea at the White House any time soon either. Eh, eh, eh..."
From the back someone shouted, "Stop holding up the line!"
George's ears perked up. "Hey! Is that you Karl? What are you
doing in line? Get on up here. You know you've got executive
privileges in my administration. Eh, eh, eh..."

the fellowship of the Spirit and thank God for His mercies as
none other can. In this right mind and righteous living we do not
only find theses blessed joys for ourselves, but others, who love
God, are made partakers, eating and drinking with us. Paul said,
"Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love,
being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through
strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem
other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own
things, but every man also on the things of others." Then comes
the keynote of our subject, "Let this mind be in you, which was
also in Christ Jesus." Here let us question our hearts and take
into the account how well we conform to what is required in our
text. Are we seeking after some vainglory? Are we selfish and
trying to'shoVe the burdens and hatdsip,' of the clhkrch'upon
other shoulders':' We should culti.ate the right mind by'much self-
denial, for none can follow Jesus without it. We must seek first
the kingdom of God and His righteousness. Is this the manner of
our lives?

Chiefland Recreational Advisory
Committee Meeting
The City of Chiefland Recreational Advisory Committee
will hold its November meeting on November 15, 2007, at 12
p.m. in Chiefland City Hall, 214 East Park Avenue.
In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities
Act, individuals with Disabilities needing a reasonable
accommodation to participate in this proceeding should
contact the office of the City Manager at City Hall, 214 East
Park Avenue in Chiefland, (352).493-6711.


I woke up about then, and boy was I glad! The whole dream was
starting to freak me out. It sure brought one point home though.
Knowing about somebody is a far cry from actually knowing
them!
Jesus said as much. On Judgment day many will say to me,
"Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in
your name and performed many miracles in your name.' But I will
reply, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's
laws.' Matthew 7:22-23 NLT
We don't gain access into God's Kingdom simply because we
know about Jesus, or even because we believe in Him and go to
Church. Even good works aren't the key. Those pearly gates only
swing open for those who know Jesus as Lord; for those who have
chosen to unwrap the best gift ever, a sincere personal relationship
with God Himself. I reckon that sets Christianity apart from all of
the false religions. You see, Christianity is not a belief system, it's
a family.
This ride could be over before the coffee cup hits the floorboard.
We'd do well to stop focusing so much about getting ahead of the
crowd and more about slicing out time for pursuing the things that
really matter, particularly our relationship with the Lord.
But anyway- Who cares if I never get to hob nob with the
President, stroll through the rose garden, or prop my feet up in the
oval office? Especially when I've been invited to be best friends,
blood kin, and a favored child of the King of Kings and Lord of

Lords!

Chiefland Knocks Union County Out of Playoffs


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR


The Union County Tigers were knocked out of the district playoff picture by a Chiefland
Indian team that, despite their earlier elimination from the playoffs, continued to play
outstanding football:
"Tonight was about pride both in our program and the seniors. We haven't played well at
home all season, and tonight was all about our team executing the way we have wanted to
all season," said first-year head coach Ajay Ulmer.



Kxl^ -^^^^


"I would love to be sitting here as part of the playoff race. But at the same time, you can't
understand the importance of finishing the season strong, regardless of how many games
remain," Ulmer explained.
The Indians have certainly developed into tough competition, starting last week at P.K.
Yonge when their defense held the Blue Wave out of the end zone in the last quarter to
preserve the win.
This week, the Indians again showed their determination by amassing a total of 300 yards
on the ground and 165 yards in the air. The were able to count six touchdowns and had four
touchdowns called back in
the first three quarters of
play.
The Tigers took the ko i
opening kickoff and were
stopped by the Indians' J
defense, forcing a field goal.
The kick was good, and the
Tigers took an early 3-0 lead.
The Indians' offense
was stopped on their first
possession and forced to


punt.
On the second play for
the Tigers, Indian Stephen
Davis intercepted the pass
and returned it 35 yards for
the Indians' first touchdown
of the game. Quarterback
Daniel Galpin passed to
McClendon for a successful
2-point try, giving the
Indians an 8-3 lead.

competition.
The Indians scored on their first drive of the second

The remainder of the first half was all Indians, as they ran

Michael Durr. With 1:25 remaining, Davis ran into the end

punter's head, and the Indians recovered the football at the
Tigers' 10-yard line.
A Galpin pass to Travis Donald in the end zone gave the
Indians a 28-11 lead as the first half ended.
The Indians continued t9 dominate the ga me on defense

field. Taking five minutes off the clock in the third quarter,
the Indians drove 90 yards to the Tigers' 1-yard line, where
Galpin ran in for another Indian touchdown. Durr's 2-point
try was good, and the Indians now led 36-11 as the third

On the second play of the fourth and final quarter, Indian
Deonte Davis scored on a 1-yard run to seal the deal for the
Indians. The extra-point kick was good, and the Indians set

New Coach Aims to, Take Red

After six seniors graduated
from last year's team that lost
in the first round of the district
g play-offs, the Red Devils have
many changes to look forward
to this season.
The most significant change
for the Red Devils is new
head coach Dave Vespignani.
Vespignani was recently
married, and he and his wife,
Rosana, live in Williston.
Vespignani attended Florida
Gulf Coast University where
he obtained his degree in
sports management. He

job.
One of the main things that he intends to work on is teaching the young team how to win and
expect to win.
Vespignani started off this past summer by taking his team to the University of Florida training
camp, where they went 6-2 against some strong competition. The players also got a look at their new
head coach's style of play, spreading the floor on offense and running a pressing speed defense from
buzzer to buzzer.
To coach the players on how to win, Vespignani explains it in three steps: accountability,
commitment to the team and pride. "Once we get there, we will be successful and a team to be
watched," Vespignani said.
The Red Devils presently have 13 players on their roster, and 11 of these are freshmen and
sophomores. There will be some football players trying to make the team after their football season
ends, and most of these are freshmen and sophomores as well.
Although they have a young team this season, the Red Devils have some outstanding young
athletes. They should become more competitive with each game this season.
The Red Devils will participate in the Pre-season Classic at Dunnellon on Nov. 14 and 15. The
game times are not yet available.
"Right now our team focus is on Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. when we play our first regular season game.
We want to be 1-0 after this game," said Vespignani.

young ladies have been working extremely hard in practice, and defense will be their biggest asset,
Robeson continued.
The team includes seven seniors, three juniors, five sophomores and five freshmen.
As this is their first year of competition, the Lady Eagles will not be in a district and will not be
eligible for tournament games. They will play nine scheduled games for this season.
The first home game will be against The Villages High School on Tuesday, Nov. 13. Game time
will be 6 p.m. Robeson and his players would like for everyone to come out and support the team.

Aguirre.

The Lady Red Devils opened their season on Nov. 1 at Interlachen and will end with their Senior

SPORTS EDITOR
In a three-way tie for the district runner-up playoff spot, the Williston Red Devils dominated the
West Port Wolf Pack and the hosting Dunnellon Tigers on Monday evening. Williston now advances
to the District 3A Playoffs.
The tie-breaker games were
one quarter each. West Port
won the toss and received
the opening kickoff and went
three-and-out after being shut
down by a very aggressive
Red Devil defense.
With the Red Devils' first
possession, Travis Evans
broke through the line and
then outran the Wolf Pack
secondary for a 50-yard
touchdown. The Mike Simma
kick was good, and the Red
Devils were off to a good
-, start.

punt the football.
With seven minutes remaining, Deonte Welch intercepted the Wolf Pack quarterback and returned
the football 30 yards for the second Red Devil touchdown. The Simma kick was again good, and the
Red Devils now led 14-0.
The Red Devil defense again stopped the Wolf Pack cold when Brandon Scott intercepted the
football again for the Red Devils.
After running the clock down to just over three minutes to play, the Red Devils were forced to
punt.

By WARREN PARKING
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Bronson Youth League hosted soccer for the second consecutive week Sat., Nov. 3.
Bronson's six soccer teams played eight games, bringing home five wins.
Both Bronson six and under teams played each other. Team 2, coached by Brent Becker,
won 5-0 against Team 1.
The 8 and under Team 1 coached by Simon Rodriguez triumphed over Alachua in a hard
fought game 5-3.
Two teams played double-headers. The 8 and under Team 2 lost their double-header: 0-3
against Archer and 0-4 against Williston.
Coached by Max Aguirre, the undefeated 10 and under team faired much better, beating
Alachua 4-0 and Hawthorne 3-11 Michael Benedetti (#8) was on fire in both games.
Benedetti and Ty Barber shared two goals a piece against Alac hua,~ g e morning game and
each scored one goal against Ha\\ tcorne in the afternoon along widi Max Jr. Aguirre who
successfully kickd a penalty'shot. Coach Max cretred "good tAirkt ard passing" with
his team's success.
The 12 and under team, coached by Amber Aguirre and Rusty Frankhauser, beat
Williston 3-0. Jesus Garcia, Brandon Quinn and Zachary Frazier divided the three goals
against Williston.
With mild temperatures beginning in the forties and ending in tle seventies, it was great
soccer weather for Bronson teams playing on their home field.
Complimenting Bronson's soccer success, Virgil Greenlee's 10 and under football team
dominated Archer 12-0.


The Wolf Pack went to the air, but the Red Devil defense almost beat the ball to the quarterback
and took over the football after two straight sacks with two minutes remaining in the game.
The Red Devils ran the clock out to win, 14-0, allowing the West Port Wolf Pack just one first
down in the entire game.
Williston moved on to face the No. 1 seed in the playoff tie-breaker games, the Dunnellon Tigers.
Championship tie-breaker playoff game
After the Red Devil fans had to move to the visitor side of the stadium and the Red Devil
football team changed from their all-red uniforms to their white visitor jerseys right on the sidelines,
there was a 30-minute warm-up period for the two teams.
The Tigers beat the Red Devils in regular season rather convincingly, but the game was played
with the Red Devil starting quarterback Devin Timmons out with an ankle injury.
During his pre-game comments, even the announcer tried to hype up to the home team Tigers that
Timmons was playing tonight.
The Tigers won the toss and elected to receive the football. They were held after their first
possession and punted to the Red Devils, who went three-and-out and had to punt back to the Tigers.
Dunnellon held possession of the football down to the four-minute mark and turned the football
over on downs, when the aggressive Red Devil defense stopped the Tigers cold on a fourth down
pass attempt at the Red Devil 45-yard line.
On the Red Devils' second play from scrimmage, it was Timmons throwing a perfect pass to a
well-covered CJ James, who made the catch at the Tigers' 10-yard line. Evans made a run to the 2-
yard line, but a procedure penalty pushed the Red Devils back to the 12-yard line.
With a great fake into the middle and a quick toss by Timmons to Welch, Welch scooted
untouched into the end zone for the Red Devil touchdown. The Simma kick was good, and the Red
Devils had a 7-0 lead with 1:45 left in the game.
The Tigers drove to the 50-yard line, and with 1:13 left in the football game, the Red Devil defense
stopped the Tigers cold on a fourth-and-four attempt.
The Red Devils ran the clock out to win the tie-breaker and advance to the district playoffs.
On Friday night, the Red Devils end their regular season play as they travel to Newberry to take
on the 9-0 Antwan Ivey-led Newberry Panthers. The Red Devils beat the Panthers the last three
seasons.
Red Devil head coach Jamie Baker told his young team that this Friday was going to be their
toughest task of the year. "But we can beat Newberry," Baker told his young team.
He reminded the few seniors on the team that this was their time to build on their season, and the
younger players can gain playoff experience.

Start Planning For Cold Weather

Fix-Ups

Preventive maintenance can be the key to keeping your home trouble-free during
the fall and winter, but many homeowners have lengthy "to do" lists and not enough
time to complete them.
Fortunately, a few tips from the experts can help you decide what to take care of
and what to delegate.
"All houses require maintenance of some kind, and
it's especially important when the weather turns colder,"
says Jim Rocchetta, vice president of Marketing for
nationwide home improvement contracting network
Handyman Connection. "Whether homeowners do
it themselves or get help from a certified handyman,
these projects can enhance both comfort and peace of
mind."
Rocchetta offers some starting points for projects:
S Keep out the elements: Check the caulking and -
seals around windows. Make sure exterior doors fit
snugly to discourage drafts.
S Insulate yourself: Double-check insulation in
attics, crawl spaces and spaces adjacent to porches or
garages.
Outdoor plumbing: Remove hoses and shut off the water to all outside
faucets to prevent them from freezing and becoming damaged.
Clutter control: Effective household organizational systems can reduce
clutter and make sure you can find what you need when spring arrives. New
shelves, cabinets or closet systems can create more space for you.
S Thorough inspection: Take the time to walk slowly around the exterior of
your house, pausing to visually inspect potential problem areas such as gutters,
chimneys, eaves, window wells and so on. Many local companies will offer
inspection services and recommendations for a fee.
Depending on the project, you may need to invest in some building materials,
time, or good old-fashioned "elbow grease."
If you need help to complete your list, discuss the details with a professionally


licensed handyman and
receive a cost estimate.
"Taking care of a few
smaller projects now can
keep bigger problems
from developing in the
future," adds Rocchetta.
"When the colder weather
arrives, you can feel
confident about the
condition of your horfie-
and start making plans
for your spring projects."
Jim Rocchetta is vice
president of Marketing for
Handyman Connection,
a nationwide network of
home improvement and
repair contractors. For
more information, call
(800) 88-HANDY or visit

Take a few minutes to
walk around your home
and see what needs to be
fixed before cold weather
arrives.

Grass-Roots Democracy
CONTINUED FROM-PAGE 1
elections to the town council on their opposition to the high-
density development proposed by Izaak Walton Investors.
Those races were often regarded as a referendum on the
proposed residential and commercial development project.
This election may have been more of the same.
"I think it was a repeat of the referendum," Clary said.
"The election was very much about reasonable growth
versus extreme growth."
She noted that the properties owned by the developers
sported numerous campaign signs for the opposition, and
the developers were in the opposition candidates' camp all
election day.
Feldhusen agreed that the election was about growth
and development proposals. Incumbent candidates and
their challengers seemed divided over the issue of growth.
Feldhusen and the other winners staked their political
platforms on limiting development while their opponents
were pro-development.
Beginning in July, The No-See-Um-News, a several
page newsletter which was supported by the opposition
candidates, began criticizing the town leaders over the
planning of a water-treatment plant, arguing that the
property needed to dispose of wastewater from the treatment
process was not appropriate for the operation because of the
soil's percolation rate. Yet the council bought it anyway.
In addition, project costs were rising, the paper noted.
In a letter, Clary disputed the charge that the property was
inappropriate, assuring residents that the property would be
adequate and that the project was moving ahead as planned.
The No-See-Um-News also blasted the council over
the Department of Community Affairs' rejection of
comprehensive plan amendments that would restrict
development such as that proposed by Izaak Walton
Investors. The DCA asked for revisions.
Rarely mentioned in the opposition publication was
the council's rejection of much of Izaak Walton Investor's
development plans, which included residential and
commercial development, five-story buildings and several
marinas. The proposed development was the subject
of numerous high profile and contentious town council

STAFF WRITER

Chiefland Chamber of Commerce President Robert
Williams cut the ribbon at EsseCuts to officially welcome
the salon into the chamber business community.
Owner Esse Kranz has been a hairstylist for over 20 years
and is excited about joining the chamber. Her salon has been
in operation since 1996, and she now wants locals to know
about her new location at 419 N. Main St., after moving
from the old spot at the Winn Dixie plaza six weeks ago.


meetings over the past two years.
A No-See-Um-News article Oct. 17 charged that
the council and its Planning and Zoning Commission
"raced toward defeating its sworn enemy 'the developer'
by crafting historical massive changes to the town's
comprehensive plan."
Later in the issue, the publication argued that the
proposed changes would make many of the existing homes
nonconforming and they would be eliminated.
"The obvious 'no change, no growth, no development'
mentality has done nothing but cause change in our little
town. Everything we love about Yankeetown will change
as the old homes eventually come down and the 'new
and improved' rules of the charter and comp plan are
implemented," the publication charged.
While the development project was only briefly
discussed in the publication, Izaak Walton Investors, at odds
with incumbent candidates for several years, waged legal
battles in Circuit Court. The development company alleged
that the town delayed the release of some public records,
withheld others and overcharged for some.
Circuit Judge David Glant noted that with only one full-
time clerk assisted by a part-time clerk, the town could
not respond as quickly as the staff of a larger city to large
eqp1gspts for records. he town's response was reasonable,'
"'he io'ted in his ruling the day before the elections.
Additionally, some records made available were not
picked up and a copying bill of $941 was unpaid. The
costs were reasonable, he wrote. No records specifically
requested were withheld, he noted. He rejected all
allegations by Izaak Walton Investors.
Despite rulings in court and election results, Yankeetown
is not likely to see an end to controversy soon. Other suits
by the developer are pending in the Circuit Court.
Berkley said she does not plan a political retirement.
While the elections results are a defeat, they indicate that
a segment of Yankeetown is dissatisfied with the town
council's positions, she said.
She plans to remain politically active in the town's
politics.

Fire advisory workshop

addresses fire assessment

classification

BY BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Levy County Commissioner Danny Stevens wanted
greater clarification of the fire calls that are reported around
the county. At last week's workshop, he asked the members
of the Fire Advisory Board (FAB) questions about what
determines the classification of a response call when the
building has multiple classifications.
"I know a lot of the commercial businesses in our district
will have a commercial part in the front and in the back
will be manufacturing, so they're charged separately on
their rates. Is that actually listed as a commercial business
or a warehouse/industrial?" asked Stevens, about how first
responders determine classification.
FAB member Rick Bloom said that he did not believe that
first responder calls went under fire assessment.
It is not uncommon in a commercial-like building to have
eight or nine fire alarm calls a year, said Bloom. Currently


VETEANSAu AYT Remember to Honor Our Veterans and Pray fo

SGOD BL ES AMERICA,




N AP w/ LomAORUTos r
SOn selec60t models in st,
ASA OR u I On select models in stc


the FAB has no ordinance in place for false alarms; however,
in Williston, Bloom said that there is a policy for assisted
living facilities.
"After a small period of time we start to charge them, say
after seven calls, or seven false alarms," said Bloom.
Stevens' concern is why the cost per square foot is
not equal, when there is more than one fire assessment
classification under one roof.
"In an industrial warehouse, where you are storing
things," Stevens said, it would actually be more dangerous
than "a commercial retailer."
"You can't reduce one category without having a domino
effect to the others," added Stevens.
Fanning Springs Fire Chief Ron McQueen mentioned
that as of the 2005 fiscal year, in attempts at "making
things better, to raise that budget," they started using the
classifications of industrial, warehouse and institutional.
"That is what they received frori the property appraisers,
not necessarily what the fire call data was," said McQueen.
According to McQueen, the reason the fire assessment
was changed is because residents started to notice that their
classification was inaccurate.
"That's why there were some changes this year that
dropped that assessment back down because some of the
taxpayers said, 'Wait a minute, I'm not commercial,"' said
McQueen.
"Part of the problem is the data. You probably capture all
of the data on commercial and industrial property, and GSG
(Government Services Group) does their study based on a
percentage on how the data comes out. But when it comes to
residential, residential use property is defined by the property
appraiser's office, and there is usually a large percentage of
calls they take out of the data set," added McQueen.
What happens is that the records will indicate 100 percent
of the commercial and industrial calls, but on the residential
side of the equation,
McQueen said, "If there's not
r Our Troops. a care address, they throw
that out of the data set."
9 If there is smoke in the
area and there is no definitive
evidence of where the
residential call is coming
from, again it is thrown

BACK McQueen.

Garbage

disposal

feeS :to go up

Nov. 30
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER

Levy County residents will
pay more to dispose of waste
at the landfill, with bags of
household garbage going from
50 cents a bag to 75 cents if
quantities are fewer than eight
bags.
The new fees go into
effect Nov. 30. This is the
first increase in 18 years,
commissioners said at the
Tuesday meeting.
Commission Chairman
Sammy Yearty said the rate
increase does not change the
cost of operating the landfill. It
just places a more realistic fee
on the service so that the money
does not have to come out of the
county's reserves.
"I just think it's a fair way of
assessing the solid waste fee,"
he said.
Commissioner Nancy Bell
opposed the new fee structure,
saying the increases were too
much at one time.
"Some of these increases not
only double, they triple," she
said.
The dramatic increases could
encourage people to dump
waste around the county, she
said.
Williston City Council
member Debra Jones told Levy
County commissioners that
the increase would negatively
impact the City of Williston,
which picks up garbage in the
city and has set its budget for
the fiscal year. The city will
not be able to pass along the
increase to its residents until the
fiscal year ends.
"Mid-year is a tough time to
impact the city," she said.
Commissioner Danny Stevens
moved to adopt the new fee
structure, with a second from
Commissioner Lilly Rooks.
Bell opposed the measure. In a
second motion, commissioners
made the new fee structure
effective Nov. 30 with a
unanimous vote.

SHERIFF'S


M9Z


A SALUTE
TO VETERANS


0 SHERIFF
JOHNNY SMITH


Hello and welcome to Your Sheriff's Corner. As I'
prepared to write this article I paused to remember and
pray for our veterans. With war a stark reality today, it's so
important to teach our children that Veterans Day means
more than just a day off from school, a long weekend and
barbeques.
Veterans Day originated with the Armistice Day holiday
commemorating the November 11, 1918, armistice at 11
a.m.; hence "the eleventh'hour of the eleventh day of the
eleventh month," which suspended active hostilities and
effectively ended the First World War.
President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11,
1919, the first Armistice Day with the following words:
"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be
filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died
in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory,
both because of the thing from which it has freed us and
because of the opportunity it has given America to show
her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the
nations ...."
The holiday originally was intended to include parades,
public meetings and a brief suspension of business
beginning at 11 a.m. On June 4, 1926, the U.S. Congress
passed a concurrent resolution requesting the president to
issue a proclamation calling for "display the flag of the
United States on all Government buildings on November 11
and inviting the people of the United States to observe the
day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with
appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other
peoples."
A 1938 statute designated each 11th of November a legal
holiday, a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace
and to be thereafter celebrated and known as "Armistice
Day." Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to.
honor veterans of World War I. In 1954, after World War II
had required the greatest, mobilization of soldiers, sailors,
Marines and airmen in the nation's history and, after
American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd
Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations,
changed the holiday's name to its present "Veterans Day."
With this change, November 11th became a day to honor
American veterans of all wars.
Unlike several other U.S. holidays now celebrated on
Monday to create long holiday weekends, Veterans Day
continues to be observed on November 11. This preserves
the historical significance of the date and helps focus
attention on the holiday's important purpose: to honor
K. I 1 ;, s 1 -, l i i- lw [n h : , .. 3, .ll ..u-J. I
Amenca's veterans for their patriotism, love of country and
willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.
The men and women of the Levy County Sheriff's Office
honor and salute the veterans who have fought and protected
this great nation.





Stronger Council
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

issues came about because of a need for the mayor to share more
power with the council.
"They were all issues that grew out of problems we had with the
previous mayor, which pointed out some of the abuses of power,"
she said.
Some referendum items, such as the last one requiring four
votes for a change in land-use regulations or rezoning, make
it more difficult to get a project of the sort proposed by Izaak
Walton Investors approved.
Voters will have more of a say if large changes to the
comprehensive plan are approved. One item specifies that voter
approval is needed if comprehensive plan changes involve more
than five parcels.
As a result of the referendum, the following changes, with votes
in parentheses, will be made to the Yankeetown charter:
1. Elections will be moved from the last Tuesday in October to
the last Tuesday in February. (177-130)
2. The mayor will no longer be able to veto ordinances and
resolutions approved by the council. (170-139)
3. Voters will be able to recall the mayor. (195-115)
4. Any increase in building height limitations needs voter
approval. (180-131)
5. Four council votes will be needed to adopt comprehensive
plan changes on five or fewer parcels. (183-127)
6. Comprehensive plan changes to more than five parcels
require voter approval. (189-121)
7. The council will adopt regulations for filling vacated council
seats. (206-104)


Levy County Sheriff's Office Recognized for Teen

Drivers Safety Program


Levy County deputies in the Community Relations
Office were recognized at Tuesday's County
Commission meeting for their work in helping
teenagers learn driver safety.
Lt. Sean Mullins, Sgt. Max Long, Donna Roe, Ken
Maddox, Grant Sandlin and Steve Ellis each received
a plaque from the Department of Transportation for
their participation in the Levy County Teen Driver
Improvement Program.
Trinda McPherson of
the DOT presented the
awards and thanked the
staff for their support of
the program, which the
DOT funded. She said
the car crashes kill more
teenagers than all other .
causes combined, and that
the program reduces the .
risks of loss of life.
Mullins said students
learn safe driving by
seeing the risks of reckless
driving. Students watch
a video called "Red
Asphalt" and they see
the remains of trucks and
SUVs in fatal accidents.
They learn that they are
not invincible, he said.
Sandlin described an
effective technique at the
end of the program, when
students write a letter to a


family member describing their own death, many with
paper wet by their own tears. They learn that "it could
be me," he said.
The program is again funded for the upcoming year.
Sheriff Johnny Smith praised and thanked his staff.
"They really do have our children's interests at heart,"
he said.


Scenes from last week's Williston Halloween Celebration


Bronson Minor Found

with Registered Sex

Offender

BRONSON-On Oct. 31,
David Lawrence Emrick was-
arrested in Clanton, Alabama
for four counts of lewd and
lascivious battery on a child
and one count of interference
with child custody. u
On Oct. 28, a 15-year-old
female was reported missing
from her Bronson residence.
The investigation revealed
that a suspicious white male
with a backpack was seen on
foot in front of the victim's
residence. The victim has been FDOT Photo
communicating by cellular David Lawrence Emrick
phone with this suspicious
male for the past five months. The victim ran away from
home and was later found in Clanton, Alabama with.the
defendant.

8. The mayor and council have power to appoint members to
boards, commissions and committees. (188-119)
9..The council has procedures for calling special council
meetings. (186-122)
10. The council needs three votes, not a majority of the'quorum,
to take action. (187-120)
11. Four votes, not a simple majority, are required to approve
land development regulations and certain rezonings. (186-124)
Clary supported the referendum items and was pleased at their
passage. Yet she was surprised that even a minority of voters
rejected the role they were given in making some of the town's
critical decisions.
"It was very surprising to me that some individuals came out
against this," she said. "The community has more of a voice in
determining what the town does. This referendum gives a lot of
control to residents in land-use issues."

On Oct. 28 the two rented a room at the Bronson Motel.
The defendant committed the offenses of lewd and lascivious
battery on a child while at the Bronson Motel. On Oct. 29
the two checked out of the Bronson Motel and hitchhiked
from Bronson to Archer, Gainesville, Live Oak and then to
Clanton in Alabama, police reports reveal.
On Oct. 31 at approximately 2:30 a.m. the defendant and
victim engaged in a verbal argument at a local gas station in
Clanton. A patron at the gas station observed the argument
and asked the victim if she was all right. The victim replied
that she was attempting to get away from the defendant,
and the citizen called law enforcement. The Clanton Police
Department arrived on the scene and discovered that the
minor dn file was a runaway in Florida. Officers also
discovered that the defendant is a registered sexual offender
in Florida. The defendant was arrested by the Clanton Police
for interference of child custody, which is a misdemeanor in
Alabama, and detained the runaway.
Cpl. Mike Narayan obtained a warrant for the arrest for the
defendant and he was arrested by Alabama authorities on Oct.
31. The defendant had in his possession a backpack containing
rope, duct tape, a pellet gun and women's clothing that did not
belong to the runaway. Anyone with information on unsolved
crimes with the defendant's description is asked to contact
Corporal Mike Narayan with the Levy County Sheriff's Office
at (352) 486-5111, ext. 265.


Billy Jack's To Reopen
BY DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
WI LLISTON-Billy Jack's Restaurant is getting more than a
face-lift. Its owner, local entrepreneur Bill Martin, initiated major
renovation and restoration immediately following its former
management's departure. "When we're finished it will be clean,
clean, clean," Mr. Martin said in a recent phone interview.
Bill Martin and his wife Denise first managed the restaurant
when they bought it in 1996 and established its early reputation
for quality family-oriented meals. When other projects-Bill
Martin is the creator and owner of the Williston Crossings RV
resort-demanded their time and attention they turned Billy
Jack's operation over to a new team who ran it for the past nine
years.
Mr. and Mrs. Martin, and their new operation's staff are
committed to creating a first class operation. They intend to retain
Billy Jack's focus on family-oriented service and menus, with
emphasis on quality and affordable prices. Mr. Martin stressed
customers were always welcomed to visit their kitchen during
their past tenure and indicated that would be the case in the
future.
Although he has not chosen a specific date-they will pin it
down this week-Mr. Martin estimated Billy Jack's will reopen
within four to six weeks.
