Legislative Relief to Affect

School Tax Levies

By BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
SThe Florida Legislature met at the end of October in a special session and passed a new
constitutional amendment that will provide $12.3 billion in tax relief over the next five
years. This new property tax relief package, even though it has been scaled down from
the one the Legislature passed in June, will have substantial negative impacts on the Levy
County School District's tax revenues.
"The package does.not identify or earmark funding to offset these revenue losses for
school districts," said Superintendent Cliff Norris at the Nov. 6 school board meeting.
"Certainly, our concern would be that the Legislature would meet in spring and come up
with something else, but if you read the news reports, the revenues in the state of Florida are
down and are going down further," said Norris.
The board's concern is that the state might not have the funding to replace these losses of
revenue from this constitutional amendment.
"I fully anticipate they will not, and will not operate at the level they were at before," said
Norris.
One of the first changes in the amendment process is the removal of the tangible personal
property tax, which will have a projected impact on Florida's school districts of $77 million
for the next year and $397 million over the next five years.
On the Save Our Homes portability amendment section, there would be a loss of $126
million for the next year and $2.3 billion over the next five years for Florida's school
districts.
The additional homestead exemption portion, however, would not apply to school tax
levies as well as the cap on non-homestead assessments.
The total impact on Florida's school property tax revenue would be a loss of $204 million
for the next year and $2.7 billion over the next five years.
"So the original information we received from the state, that they were going to hold
schools harmless, has not come through," said Norris.
The estimated impact over the next five years for Levy County, with the school taxable
value level somewhere around $2.4 million a year, could easily exceed $10 million.
"Again these are estimates," said Bob Clemons, adding, "I will say that these estimates
are slightly less than they had anticipated."
Something that provides a glimmer of hope is the information that Clemons received
about Levy qualifying as a "fiscally constrained county."
"There will be some offset to these losses. So we'll have to
wait and see how that plays out," Clemons said, with Norris
confirming, "This will be in the implementing bill, as the
constitutional amendments pass."


John Ward Appointed

Chiefland's New Fire

Chief
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Chiefand commissioners hired a fire chief Tuesday, giving
Interim Chief John Ward the permanent position.
Ward has served as interim chief since Aug. 22, after the
resignation of Chief David Burnett.
Prior to serving as interim
chief, Ward volunteeredd as
deputy chief with Chiefland
Fire Rescue for 14 )ears,
participating in training, ,
organization, fundraising,
recruitment and other services.
He was the overwhelming
choice of commissioners.
"I think that John Ward
is definitely our man." said
Commissioner Teresa Barron Chiefland's new fire chief
before the 5-0 vote. "I think John Ward
we should go ahead and hire
him."
While Ward had no experience as fire chief, he has had
experience as a paramedic and a firefighter. He will need to
attend school part time to become certified as a fire inspector,
probably within the next six months.
Ward and commissioners agreed that his salary would be
the same as the previous chief $41,500 when he completes
has fire inspection certification. Until then, at the suggestion
of Mayor-Commissioner Teal Pomeroy, Ward's salary will be
$41,000,
Ward will oversee a department of two other full-time
employees, several part-time employees and 14 volunteer
firefighters.
His ber'efiis such as vacation time will be retroactive to his
Aug. 22 hiring as interim chief. The city will pay an estimated
$300 for him to obtain his fire inspector certification.
In moving for a reduced salary, Pomeroy noted that Ward
lacked some of the qualifications of the previous chief,
such as the fire inspector certificate. Ward, however, told
commissioners that Chiefland was low on the salary scale.
when compared to fire departments statewide. The previous
chief was at a rock-bottom salary, Ward said.
"I'm here to make a living," he said in accepting the
temporary pay reduction.
Barron moved to hire Ward with the contract modifications
commissioners discussed. "Welcome aboard," she said after
the vote.
As a volunteerr deputy fire chief for Chiefland, Ward
received the Medal of Valor for rescuing a fellow firefighter
from an unsafe structure. He also received the Distinguished
Service Award from the state of Florida.
While volunteering with the Chiefland Fire Department,
Ward worked for three years as manager and laborer on Tillis
Farms in Chiefland.
From 2002 to 2004, he worked for Gainesville Fire Rescue
as a firefighter and paramedic. Before that, he was employed
by Levy County Emergency Services as paramedic and as
firefighter and first responder with Micanopy Fire Rescue.


Consultant Makes Sewer

Proposal to Bronson Council
BY BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER
Engineer and consultant Frank Darabi gave his insight
into Bronson's sewer problems by giving a cost-effective
analysis of what could work fn regulating a sewer plant
facility.
"It is very critical to have the proper regulations in place;
otherwise it will cost you a lot more money later," said
Darabi.

By having the proper regulations in place, a town
can recoup some of the plant's costs, and through a
Disadvantaged Communities Grant that the state provides,
plant construction loans are easily accessible, said Darabi.
Construction loans under this program are available to
all project sponsors, regardless of size, who provide money
for construction after planning and design are complete.
Disbursements are made to project sponsors after costs
are incurred, and disbursements during construction are
generally on a monthly basis.
"Whatever you borrow, you have to back it up with
rates water rates and sewer," said Darabi, who thinks that
Bronson needs to look at securing about $2.4 million in
loans and perhaps matching that in grant money.
"You need to go to your legislative delegation and say
you need this money," said Darabi, and also mentioned that
hiring an engineering firm is one of the best ways to access
grant money and find the right loan program.
Council member Berlon Weeks made a motion to seek out
private offers for engineers. It passed unanimously.

Dear Editor:
This Thanksgiving Day, as we gather with family and friends to count our blessings, let's give
thanks for the bounty we enjoy not just on this holiday, but every day. The safe, plentiful food that
is available to us, and the products used to produce the clothing, housing, medicines, fuel and other
products we use on a daily basis didn't just appear in a store. They got there thanks to a tremendous
partnership of farmers and ranchers, processors, brokers, truckers, shippers, advertisers, wholesalers
and retailers.
In appreciation of this farm-city partnership, the week leading up to and including Thanksgiving
Day is recognized as National Farm-City Week. What are we celebrating? The American economy is
strong thanks to the interdependence of farms and cities.
As the president of the Levy County Farm Bureau, I would like to encourage local residents to
take a moment this holiday season to appreciate the partnership that makes our food supply safe,
affordable and abundant.
Levy County has deep roots in agriculture. All of our best-known festivals have their basis in
agriculture. From Williston's peanuts to Chiefland's watermelons and even Cedar Key's seafood,
these events bring folks together to celebrate harvesting of our locally grown commodities.
Here in Levy County there are nearly 900 farms with about 180,314 acres in agricultural
production. Levy ranks fifth in the state in value of livestock and second in the state for the value of
aquaculture items produced.
The county also ranks first in the amount of corn produced for silage, second in the number of
acres of peanuts planted and sixth for amount of acreage used for forage.
Total receipts from the sale of crops and livestock in Levy County rose to $83 million in 2002
based upon a report released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis at the U.S. Department of
Commerce. This was a nearly 50 percent increase from the value in 1997, the last time the census of
agriculture was conducted
Neither the farm nor the city can exist in isolation. Instead, the interdependence of the two creates
jobs, products, markets and relationships that make our economy and nation strong. Join with us in
recognizing Levy County agricultural producers and allied industries and the contributions they
make to the economy.
Next week, as we celebrate Thanksgiving, let's remember the vital farm-city partnerships that
have done so much to improve the quality of our lives. Rural and urban communities working
together have made the most of our rich agricultural resources, and have made significant
contributions to our health and well-being and to the strength of our nation's economy. For this, we
can give thanks.
Van Whitehurst, President, Levy County Farm Bureau

HOME HEATING
SAFETY TIPS


SHERIFF
1OH NHNY SMITH


Hello and welcome to Your Sheriffs Corer. As we begin to feel the first winds of winter, I would
like to remind all our citizens to keep safety in mind when cranking up the fireplace or space heater,
including making sure that smoke detectors are working.
Disaster can occur in seconds, but following a few safety tips will keep your family safe.
Kerosene Heaters
SBe sure your heater is in good working condition. Inspect exhaust parts for carbon build-up. Be
S sure the heater has an emergency shut-off in case the heater is tipped over.
Nevers ue? if m gpa'nncesi fout proper Trom en ltirii.n ii. -ig fel (ker';te, coal a
or propane, for-xOample) prodwces5ieadly ftipesh --Rih r 1'.
Use only the fuel recommended by the heater manufacturer. Never introduce a fuel into a unit not
designed for that type fuel.
Keep kerosene or other flammable liquids stored in approved metal containers, in well -ventilated
storage areas, outside of the house.
Never fill the heater while it is operating or hot. When refueling an oil or kerosene unit, avoid
overfilling. Use caution with cold fuel for it may expand in the tank as it warms up.
Refueling should be done outside of the home (or outdoors).
Keep young children safely away from space heaters especially when they are wearing
nightgowns or other loose clothing that can be easily ignited.
When using a fuel-burning appliance in the bedroom, be sure there is proper ventilation to prevent
a build up of carbon monoxide.
Wood Stoves and Fireplaces
Wood stoves and fireplaces are becoming a very common heat source in homes. Careful attention to
safety can minimize their fire hazard. To use them safely:
Be sure the stove or fireplace is installed properly. Wood stoves should have adequate clearance
(36") from combustible surfaces, and proper floor support and protection.
Wood stoves should be of good quality, solid construction and design, and should be UL
(Underwriters Laboratories) listed.
Have the chimney inspected annually and cleaned if necessary, especially if it has not been used
for some time.
Do not use flammable liquids to start or accelerate any fire.
Keep a glass or metal screen in front of the fireplace opening to prevent embers or sparks from
jumping out, and unwanted material (or people or pets) from going in.
The stove should be burned hot twice a day for 15-30 minutes to reduce the amount of creosote
build-up.
Don't use excessive amounts of paper to build roaring fires in fireplaces. It is possible to ignite
creosote in the chimney by overbuilding the fire.
Never bum charcoal indoors. Burning charcoal can give off lethal amounts of carbon monoxide.
'* Keep flammable materials away from your mantel. A spark from the fireplace could easily ignite
'these materials.
*' Before you go to sleep, be sure your fireplace fire is out. Never close your damper with hot ashes
in the fireplace. A closed damper will help the fire to heat up again and will force toxic carbon
monoxide into the house.
.* If synthetic logs are used, follow the directions on the package. Never break a synthetic log apart
to quicken the fire, and/or use more than one log at a time. They often burn unevenly, releasing
higher levels of carbon monoxide.
Furnace Heating
:* It's important that you have your furnace inspected to ensure that it is in good working condition.
Be sure all furnace controls and emergency shut-offs are in proper working condition.
Leave furnace repairs to qualified specialists. Do not attempt repairs yourself unless you are
qualified.
Inspect the walls and ceiling near the furnace and along the chimney line. If the wall is hot or
discolored, additional pipe insulation or clearance may be required.
Check the flue pipes and pipe seams. Are they well supported? Free of holes, and cracks? Soot
along or around the seams may be an indicator of a leak.

Cookin' & Carryin' On


BY CINDY Jo AYERS
Bam, bam, barn goes the sound of little bare feet pounding down the weathered old dock.
At the end of the dock a frayed rope is bound to a rusty and slightly dented trap. As the five-
year-old boy clad only in knee length swimming shorts grabs the rope and young muscles
flex as his thin arms tug mightily. The child is hoping to pull up a much awaited treasure.
"Look, look, PePa I got six crabs, big old crabs" the boy yells as he lifts the tattered
trap onto the dock. His grandfather standing only a few feet away gives a slight grin and
chuckles, "I see son, they are really fine ones." The youngsters chocolate brown eyes a
duplicate of his grandfathers twinkle as he proudly surveys his catch. His grandfather
patiently unhooks the trap lid and helps the boy shake the crabs into a tall white bucket.
This tradition of the grandfather baiting hooks, helping bait crab traps and generally
keeping his grandchildren safe as they swam, fished and crabbed from the dock continued
through their entire childhood.
When their families arrived at the fourth generation family fish camp in Suwannee the
race was on. Any one of the four grandchildren would race down the dock to its end. They
passed bent nails which were working their way out of the thick slightly warped boards.
Wood that pounding feet, wind, rain and several hurricanes had worn silk smooth from the
passing of time and weather.
I'm not sure to this day what brought on this inevitable race to the end of the dock.
Maybe they felt the need to see if the brackish river water was still rolling down to merge
with the salty gulf. It could have been the need to just hear the pounding of their own feet
as they raced along. Whatever the reasoning in their young minds they always without
fail returned walking along slowly, looking over the docks edge into the river to see what
changes had occurred since their last visit. They would leave the dock with a satisfied smile
pasted to the often sunburned cheeks. I guess in their young minds if the old weathered dock
was still sitting upon its leaning supports and the Suwannee was still winding its way past
the camp then all must surely be right with the world.
Ah, precious memories of days gone by.
The old dock remains to this day some fifteen or so years after those little feet pounded
down it. Although those children's faithful grandfather and often times fishing partner J.
Min Ayers is no longer with us the memories of these special times remain true and strong.
If you asked any one of the family members what his favorite food was I'm sure we
would all respond in one accord, "blue crabs."
Mostly, the crabs that we ate at Suwannee were simply boiled and served atop newsprint
with a small bowl of melted butter. Our family uses bagged crab boil, a couple of lemons
squeezed and then thrown into the pot, and a little extra salt when boiling crabs. We clean
the crabs before they are boiled, popping the backs off, cutting away the-finger shaped gills
and spraying out the crab's insides with a hose. Hot boiled blue crabs a crunchy piece of
garlic bread or some Captain's Wafers@ and we are all set for what we all consider a true
feast.
Through the years we've eaten crabs many ways and the recipe that follows is for blue
crab salad. Its really a simple dish, but oh so good. Fresh blue crab meat is hard to find but
recently I found it at the Hitchcock's store in Old Town. This crab meat came from Panacea,
Florida and it was pretty ood.-l.:,i .eb frorm.a supermarket you wil.inp it
into colander and run cold afterr over slwl.
i'1i&l gently rilise all the \ello\\ stuff o'ffilt fd~mab make it taste mniah freher.
Be sure to drain it well. Also, if you cannot find real blue crab then you can substitute the
imitation crab meat.

Blue Crab Salad
1 lb. blue crab meat
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
Kraft mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon season salt
A little salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
Gently mix all ingredients using just enough mayonnaise to hold the salad loosely
together and chill for onehour before serving. We like to eat this salad on Captain Wafers.

Is the chimney solid? No cracks or loose bricks? All unused flue openings should be sealedwith
solid masonry.
Keep trash and combustibles away from the heating system.
Other Fire Safety Tips
Never discard hot ashes inside or near the home. Place them in a metal container outside and well
away from the house.
Never use a range or an oven as a supplementary heating device. Not only is it a safety hazard, it
can be a source of potentially toxic fumes.
If you use an electric heater, be sure not to overload the circuit. Only use extension cords that have
the necessary rating to carry the amp load.
Avoid using electric space heaters in bathrooms or other areas where they may come in contact
with water.
Frozen water pipes? Never try to thaw them with a blowtorch or other open flame, (otherwise the
pipe could conduct the heat and ignite the wall structure inside the wall space.) Use hot water or a
UL labeled device such as a hand held dryer for thawing.
If windows are used as emergency exits in your home, practice using them in the event fire should
strike. Be sure that all windows open easily. Home escape ladders are recommended.
Finally...be sure every level of your home has a working smoke detector, and be sure to check and
clean it on a monthly basis.
I trust that these tips will be helpful and you will use caution when utilizing your heaters/fireplaces.
If you have any questions or need assistance you may call my Public Information Officer, Lt. Evan
Sullivan or your local Fire Department officials.

Now there is sometimes in men's minds a kind of confusion in
this matter. They are in a certain path, from which they want to
be extricated; they are under a trial, from which they want to be

LOUISE PERSINGER
Louise Persinger of Williston passed away Friday, November 9,
2007 at Williston Rehab and Nursing Center. She was 93.
Louise had lived in Williston for 40 years and was a member of

some divine manifestation to bring me out of a sin, when my
conscience bore its solemn witness, and I was miserable under
the weight and burden of it? No; the very conviction is the answer
of God to the prayer; the very burden which the Lord lays on
us is meant to press us out of that in which we are walking. So
I reasoned with myself: "If I am living in sin, if it be a sin to be
where I am, if I must do things which my conscience tells me are
sins, and by which my conscience is burdened as sins, the very
conviction, the very distress, the very burden, is the answer. It is
the voicpf God in the cnsci.enoe ,not he voiceof God in the' ~r
air,nof the appearanqeof God in the sky,bit the voice of od,, i
in the conscience, and the appearance of the frown of God in the
heart." And on this simple conviction I was enabled to act, and
never to this day have repented it. I have, therefore, been led to
see by experience, that we are often expecting wonderful answers,
mysterious answers, and the Lord does not mean to give those
answers.

BUT ANYWAY


G y [.Sheffield




The gentle lapping of the waves against our bow aroused the sleepy
dawn. Little colorful songbirds began to rustle about, calling excitedly
from the brush tops along the grassy banks.
The cares and hustle of the far-off big city seemed to slip effortlessly
fnom my shoulders as I breathed in the scent of tall pines which etched
ihe magnificent shoreline. My thoughts were swaying in harmony with
the rhythms of the earth. This was the day that the Lord had made. My
soul was at ease.
Then, without warning, a loud slap echoed across the water. The boat
heaved. "Get the net!" my buddy Derek called, his straining fishing rod
held high. Another bass had attacked his spinner bait. I gritted my teeth
and reluctantly tossed the net, then quickly spun back around to make
another angry cast.
Sure, I had been gracious when he'd caught the first fish. When he
reeled in.the second, I forced a smile and secretly eyeballed what color
bait he was using. But now... now there'd be no more mister nice guy.
Not in my boat. Game on! All that harmony stuff is for the birds.

Immediately I began to work the trolling motor so I could box Derek
out and get to the best holes first. When he got hung up, I kept on
fishing like I didn't notice. When he missed strike, I threw in on top
of him to catch his leftovers. I gave him the full treatment.
Derek was no stranger to such tantrums of testosterone. He stepped
up to throw a counter punch by chiding, "How does it feel to be getting
whooped in your own boat?"
"Little mind games won't work on me," I grumbled. My next cast
sailed high up into the bushes.
I just can't help myself. The drive to win was bred into me. Take the
day I walked out of the dove fields as a kid boasting two more birds
than my dad. I was grinning from ear to ear. As we hopped in the truck
to leave, three birds trailed over the tree line as if on cue. Dad jumped
back out and dropped em' all.
Mom's no pushover either. She attempts to memorize the whole
Scrabble dictionary before I come over to play.
So, despite a lot of passive teaching in the Church, I'm still not sure
I agree that having the desire to be victorious and to overcome is a bad
thing. I mean, isn't God Himself a champion and a conqueror? The
LORD is a warrior; yes, the LORD is his name! Exodus 15:3.
Weren't we made in His image? Weren't we commanded to subdue
and have dominion? It only stands to reason that deep down each of us
would have a penchant for winning.

Did you know this very nation was birthed out of a fight? Yes, one
to overcome religious oppression. Our forefathers challenged the
unknown seas and the muskets of the Redcoats in their struggle. Other
adventurous men and women tamed the wild frontiers to press on to
forge a great nation. One they hoped would remain under God.
Naturally dark forces have sought to stamp out our freedom at every
turn, but God has always raised up brave men and women to conquer
the lies, the hatred, and all of evil's aggression. They're still doing it
today.
Of course, meekness and humility must always play an important
role in our lives if we are to properly harness these passions for God's
purposes. Recognizing the real enemy can be a bonus too. (Note to self:
Mine is not Derek!)
The Lord Jesus not only showed us our enemy, but made a show out
of him! Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public
spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15 NKJ.
Our real foe is the devil, and his whole crew.
As Christians, our job is to enforce Jesus' victory on this earth and to
spread His Good News until He returns. When He does, I pity the fools
who have decided to ride against Him. That's a day the Lord will be
packing a sword. See Revelation 19:11-16.
But anyway Derek had a ten-to-nine lead when the dark clouds set
in. I offered the use of my spare rainsuit, but he declined. (He might've
been a little irritated with me
Equipment, Inc. by then.) As he graciously
grabbed a paddle to work us
efland, FL back toward the boat ramp, the
bottom fell out and the poor
fellow got plumb drenched.
m I ,iI don't reckon that made him
4 half as mad as me fishing the
whole way back and catching
that last bass at the dock.

Miss Honey Says...

Good morning! Isn't it great to wake up well
and alive and still in the land of the living? God
has been so good to me, and I thank Him from the
bottom of my heart.
I'm sitting here surrounded by love yes
"puppy love," but I can't find Sweet Pea. I don't
know if he is missing, lost or hiding, but I sure hope he isn't gone
and will be here when I get back from Bronson this morning. Yes, I
love Sweet Pea and pray for him to appear today. Lord, please send,
him to me, okay? I know you can, I believe you will, thank you
Lord in advance.
Oh where would I be without Jesus, all of you, my friends, and
yes my little dogs! Hush, Donald, they love me more than my kids
or you! Yeah they do! I know you and Mary love me, and yes, so
does Barbara.
I think I'll get this written and go down to A&A and have coffee,
and roll some silverware. I might as well make myself useful to
someone, right?
I have plenty to do, but no one to make me do it. Gosh isn't life
great in the twilight years? We can do as we please, as long as we
don't please to do too much, stay as long as we wish, and when we
get home there isn't anyone but the little dogs who wag their tails
and not their tongues!
Yeah, do too, so hush, Donald.
Well I'll make this short and sweet, so until next week, may the
Lord take a liking to you, be sweet and take care. Until next week
God bless.

ThinkLink Introduces

Learning Advantages to

County Students

BY BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

A new student interactive computer program called
ThinkLink is being used at Levy County schools, and
educators are raving about its versatility in the classroom,
providing student monitoring throughout the school year.
"We sat down as a group and evaluated our products,
and ThinkLink is the product that we choose to use in our
schools," said instructional services director Jeff Edison
about the group of educators and principals that helped in
the selection process.
Linda Durrance introduced the program at the Nov. 5
school board meeting and had principals and educators give
testimony about how ThinkLink has enhanced their school's
ability to teach and track students.
"We use numbers to help us identify changes and trends,"
said Durrance.
If a student is not focusing on what is being taught,
Durrance said, then teachers need to re-teach it and then test
the student again to see if the results differ.
"We work with the ThinkLink data and the reading
coaches. We work with the curriculum coaches and the
principals, and then revise and measure, and then revise and
identify," said Durrance about the program's improvement
cycle.
Specializing in predictive assessment, the program was
founded by Vanderbilt University and was acquired by
Discovery Education in 2006.
"A predictive assessment means that it can measure
within 90 percent accuracy," said Durrance.
Within that 90 percent, "we will know where our students
are on FCAT," said Durrance.
The assessments are given three times a year, in
September, November and January, and the reports allow
teachers to immediately identify students' strengths and
weaknesses, said Durrance. Then focused instruction can
begin.
The charted results are posted on the Internet, so teachers
can inventory and share information with fellow educators.
Students can also access the program at home, increasing
the learning cycle outside of the classroom.
The Continuous Improvement Model, or CIM, and
ThinkLink "go hand and hand," said Cheryl Beauchamp,
Bronson Elementary School principal.
"Using the ThinkLink system has helped us make these
quick check assessments. It's a real handy tool for a teacher
to have at their fingertips," said Beauchamp.
Cindy Roach is a reading coach at Cedar Key School,
and after looking at the data, she said, "We're always falling
down in research, in the reading areas."
Roach said Cedar Key is also using the program is to
create a virtual classroom, tracking students, for example, in
English skills while a teacher gives a social studies lesson.
At Chiefland Elementary School, principal Patrice

McCully said by selecting a "probe," teachers can narrow
down to the specific areas in which a student is having
trouble, as well as tailor questions to find whaf degree the
student is failing to comprehend.
"When using the probe, teachers can select from a base of
questions that are listed as easy, moderate or difficult," said
McCully.
By using the curriculum mapping program, Chiefland
Middle School principal Bobby Tumispeed is able to find
out how the teachers of his school are using the program and
which ones might "need a little encouragement."
"We're meeting every week, and we're talking," said
Turnispeed about the data-sharing sessions he now has with
his teachers.
Williston Middle School teacher and curriculum
coordinator Morgan Bennett reported that FCAT scores
have jumped from a half a level to a level higher as result of
using ThinkLink.
"What's going to make the difference is the teachers and
principals who have presented here tonight. This is going to
test our ability to train them and just get out of their way,"
said Edison.

Waste Pro Increases

Rates, Continues Service

for Bronson

BY BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

Waste Pro representative Bob Wolk sent a letter to the town of
Bronson that outlined a price increase as part of the incremental
Consumer Price Index, or CPI, that sets the jump in serviceable
fees.
The current CPI is at 2.8 percent, which would mean an
increase of 23 cents for Bronson.
Council member Berlon Weeks suggested that because there
is a dumping facility in the city limits it might be more cost
effective to use city equipment to take care of the town's trash
needs.
"We constantly have him coming back with price increases. It
just seems like it's unfair to the citizens of the town," said Weeks.
Council member Melody La Flam wanted to know when the
rates had last increased. ,"


"It was 2005, I believe," said Town Clerk Donna Conquest.
Vice Mayor Beatrice Mongo said that the contract with Waste
Pro was signed as of last year and believes that there is another
three years to the next renewal.
"If you compare it to other cities, we are getting out a lot
cheaper than many of them," said Mongo.
Mongo said she did a cost analysis about a y ear ago of the city
taking on trash responsibilities. "We would have been out of a lot
of money then," she said.
"Most businesses get their trash dumped only once a week; we
get ours dumped twice a week," she said.
Weeks wanted to know if the increase would also apply to
commercial pick-ups. Conquest said that as she was informed it
would only include a residential increase.
Mongo made a motion to allow for the increase that passed
unanimously.

Trenton Upsets Chiefland

Bronson Lady Eagles Take

Preseason Classic


On Friday evening, as the
cold settled in over the Trenton
High School football field,
the Chiefland Indians varsity
football team prepared to take
on long-time rival Trenton.
Chiefland won the coin toss and
began their assault immediately
with a touchdown by Tommy
Sheffield and a good extra point
attempt. Trenton answered that
with an exciting play where
Cam Cross carried the ball


Trenton's Brandon Mathis runs the ball into the end zone for 36 yards and was stopped by
Trenton's first touchdown of the evening. Chiefland's Stephen Davis at
the 25 yard line.
On the next play Trenton's Brandon Mathis carried the ball and was tackled by Chiefland's
Delmar Dial. As Trenton closed in on the goal line, quarterback Durell Henry passed the ball to
running back Brandon Mathis who ran the ball in to score. The extra point kick was blocked, so the
score was 7 to 6 in Chiefland's favor.
With their next possession, Chiefland's Tommy Sheffield gained some yardage but was tackled
by Trenton's Durell Henry and Kyle Bongiovanni. Kyle Feather caused an incomplete pass for
Chiefland by tipping the ball, and the ball was intercepted by Chiefland's Clenten Wasson to turn the
ball over to Chieflafid.
After a few yards gained and an encroachment penalty, Trenton regained possession of the ball.
Trenton's Brandon Mathis,
with pure determination, ran
the ball 44 yards for a Trenton M

Trenton's Travis Sessions foiled the attempt. The final score was Trenton Tigers 33, Chiefland

The Chiefland Indians ended their season under first-year Head Coach Ajay Ulmer. The Indians
continued to make great progress as they won two of their last three games. The Indians as a team
bought into Coach Ulmer's system, and the Indians had a very respectful season.
When the residents who live near the school feel the earth begin to shake and hear loud collisions

I think Chiefland's old ball coach Doyle McCall said it best about the new Head Coach at
Chiefland. "He is a blessing and he knows football, and Indian football has returned to Chiefland,"

Starting the season with a 2-0 record, the Bronson Lady Eagles basketball team certainly have
taken on a new look and a new game this year.
The Lady Eagles defeated the Cornerstone Lady Cougars in the championship game of the
Bronson Preseason Classic, 58-42.
The Lady Eagles were led in scoring by Ashley Thomas, who had 22 points including three 3-
point baskets, and Elizabeth Gay, who had 16 points.
Bronson jumped out to an 11-0 lead and never looked back. Even when the Lady Cougars pulled
to within 4 points to end the first quarter, the Lady Eagles continued their aggressive play and took a
31-22 lead at halftime.
Eighth-grader Kelly Wing had 16 points for the Lady Cougars and played an excellent floor game,
while Michael Mantel had a team-high 22 points for the Lady Cougars in a losing cause.
In the consolation game, it was the Seven Rivers Lady Warriors defeating the Countryside
Christian Angels, 41-14. Abby Labahn had 12 points, and Maggie Satterly had 10 points for the
Lady Warriors in the win.
This was a very exciting and well played tournament by all four teams that participated.

game
The Villages will have the distinction of dominating Bronson, 8-0, in their first game. In contrast
with Bronson, some of the girls on The Villages' team have been playing together for years.
The Villages started with two quick goals in the first five minutes of the two 40-minute halves.
Led by strikers Leigha Smith and Danielle Chapuseaux, the Lady Buffalos showed a powerful
passing attack.
Then for a while, the Bronson girls held their own, Led by fullback Sara Shouse, they were able
to defuse attacks and clear the ball defensively, a glimmer of what this team will accomplish with a
little more history.
However, the strength and skill from the home team proved too much for the visiting Bronson
team to handle. Constant pressure by the Buffalos' offense and too much time with a loose ball in
the penalty area, led to a barrage of scores. Smith led The Villages' players with her college-level
skills, including a powerful and accurate shot.
After the game, Bronson High School head coach Doug Robeson said, "They played pretty well,
and they will do better next game." Even the anxiety from their first game changed into an "overall a
good experience" for many on the team.

The Panthers took an early lead in the first quarter and never looked back with their star running
back Antwan Ivey carrying the ball 18 times for 256 yards and two touchdowns in the first half.
After several long Ivey runs moved the ball down to the Red Devil 8-yard line, he ran in for the
Panthers' first score. The Red Devils promptly blocked the extra-pointkick, and. thesc.o e was 6-0.

The Williston Red Devils take the field at Newberry. With a little over six minutes
remaining in the first half,
Panther quarterback Guy Brown hit his brother Ryan Brown with a 60-yard strike for a touchdown.
With the good extra-point kick, the score was now 26-0.
Panther Phillip Warner's kickoffs were all in the end zone and could not be returned by the Red
Devils, who continued to start at their 20-yard line.
With four minutes remaining, the young Red Devils made a move. On second-and-10, quarterback
Devin Timmons threw a touch pass over the middle, and sophomore Deonte Welch made a
spectacular one-handed grab and pulled away from three Panther defenders outrunning them to
the end zone for an 80-yard touchdown. The MikeSimma kick was good, and the score was now
Panthers 26 and Red Devils 7.
There were still four minutes remaining in the first half, which was just enough time for Ivey to
break loose for several more long runs capped off by his second touchdown of the game from 16
yards out. The Warner kick was good, and the first half ended 33-7.
In the third quarter it was a 25-yard run by Panther quarterback Brown for another Newberry
touchdown. Then Benny Hadley broke loose for a 34-yard run to put the Panthers in a comfortable
47-7 lead as the third quarter ended.
The Red Devils scored again as Timmons hit CJ James with his eighth catch of the game for
another 80-yard touchdown. The Simma.kick made the final score Newberry 47 and Red Devils 14.
The Red Devils amassed a season-high 285 passing yards against the Panthers with James

The Seven Rivers Lady Warriors came out on top in a fast and exciting game, holding on for a 35
to 33 win at the buzzer.
The normally hot shooting guards for the Eagles were off the mark the entire game and the Lady
Eagles had problems getting the ball into the post to Elizabeth Gay. When they were successful in
getting the ball to Gay, the Warrior defense would collapse around her.
The Lady Warriors did a good job on defense taking away the strengths of the Lady Eagles game
especially in the forth and final quarter.
The Lady Eagles will be back in action Friday November 16 at the Bronson gym, as they take on
First Academy. Game time is 3:30 pm.

Williston Honors Veterans in

Linear Park Ceremony

BY STEVE JARBOE
STAFF WRITER
Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcote took the stage under the pavilion at Linear Park on Sunday to
honor our local veterans and veterans all across the country.
Under the direction of Alvin Johnson Jr., the Williston High School band entertained the large
gathering, and the Williston ROTC color guard was also on hand to present the colors.
There were several local political figures in attendance, and some sent representatives to speak
for them. Gov. Charlie Crist sent a letter that thanked the people of Williston for their support in
remembering America's veterans.
Heathcote reminded the crowd in his brief but interesting introductions that it was because of
sacrifices by our veterans that we were able to assemble and enjoy many of the freedoms we have
today in America.

Krause was again tested early and often as the second half of play began. Krause was then removed
from the game when she suffered a hamstring injury midway through the second half of play.
Freshman Allie Stiegemeier was moved to the goalie position for the Lady Red Devils.
She did an outstanding job in her first varsity game as goalie, but the experienced Van Guard team
managed to slide in two more goals for the final score of 7-0.
Red Devil Head Coach Max Aguirre said after the game, "I thought we came out ready to play, but
we were just not as focused as we should have been."
The competition will continue to pick up for the Lady Red
Devils as they head to PK Yonge for their next game on Thursday
evening November 16.

Going With the Flow Paddle Florida


Local paddler and event organizer Bill Richards got swept up
with the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail. And he's hoping
others will join him.
As an avid outdoorsman, Richards had hit most of the
canoe and kayak trails in Florida. He began looking for an
event that celebrated the beauty of Florida's wild and natural
rivers. And once he realized that there was no such event, he
did what any good naturalist would do made one using the
river nearest to his heart, the Suwannee.
"It all fell into place and I knew what I had to do. I'd
been involved with creating Bike Florida and Cycle North
Carolina. And I volunteered with several tourism groups
that promote North Central Florida. I realized that our
state needed a signature event to celebrate paddling," said
Richards.
And so Paddle Florida was born.
"This event is truly unique because of its partnership
with the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail," said Richards.
"Other state-wide paddling events use area schools or
community centers to house paddlers. But Paddle Florida
allows paddlers to camp right on the banks of the river, and
experience the river on a much more personal level."
Covering 123 miles of the scenic Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail, the seven-day event launches from the
Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and finishes at beautiful
Manatee Springs State Park. As many as 300 paddlers
will be going with the flow, averaging 18 miles per day
and camping on the banks of Florida's beautiful Suwannee
River.
Paddle Florida is held in cooperation with the Florida
Park Service and the Suwannee River Water Management
District. These two organizations, through partnerships
with both the public and private sectors, have created the
171-mile Suwannee River Wilderness Trail. The Trail is a
series of cabins, river camps and private "hubs" that, taken


together, make the Suwannee River accessible to paddlers,
hikers, bikers, equestrian enthusiasts and other user groups.
Details: Dates: March 20-27, 2008. Deadlines: January
15, 2008 is the deadline to participate in the whole week-
long trip. Paddlers interested in only a few days are
welcome as well; see the website for Paddle Florida Lite
options. For more information, go to www.PaddleFlorida.org or
call Bill Richards at (352) 377-8342.

Friends of the Lower

Suwannee and Cedar Keys

Wildlife Refuge Kick Off

Programs Nov. 17

The Friends of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys
National Wildlife Refuge are kicking off their public
programs for 2007-2008, this Saturday, Nov. 17 at 10:30 a.m.
at the Cedar Key Library.
State archeologist Jim Dunbar will present a program
on the ancient mysteries of how human life was affected
by Florida's changing shoreline and inland water table. As
the glaciers retreated, Florida's environment and landscape
dramatically changed. Dunbar will describe how this
affected Paleo-Indian cultures dating back some 14,500
years before Europeans arrived. He will give particular
coverage to the pre-historical development of the Big Bend
and Suwannee River Basin. Some of his past research has
actually been at sites located underwater in the Gulf of
Mexico.
Come join us. Bring the whole family and a friend. Learn
more about the Friends' activities as you enjoy refreshments.
Contact Jay Bushnell for more information at (352) 493-
1807.

to Host County Music

Event in Bronson

BY BILL MCCREA
STAFF WRITER

The director of education for the county's Humane
Society, Michelle Hagen, wants to have a county music
event at Bronson's recreational complex to raise money for
the society's new initiative at Sleepy Creek Farms.
At the Nov. 5 Bronson Town Council meeting, Hagen
announced their proposal for Sleepy Creek Farms to donate
a portion of their land to be the home of the new Humane
Society.
"The facility will feature dog and cat adoption and, with
the help of the University of Florida, will have a state-of-the
art spaying and neutering facility," said Hagen.
To raise the extra funds to build this new facility, Hagen
said that the society has earmarked "their main event," called
the Wild West Fest, for the town of Bronson.
"The Humane Society would like to ask permission to use
the Youth League Facility to have our event on Sat., Nov. 23,
2008," said Hagen.
Hagen asked if the event could sell alcohol, lifting the
town's ordinance for the day of the event. The council said
that she could use the park for the event; however, they
tabled the matter of beer sales.

Traffic Accident Fee

Ordinance Still Alive; But

Not Kicking
BY DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
At its second and final reading Williston City Council tabled
indefinitely ordinance 576 that will repeal an ordinance passed
earlier in the year which invokes a user fee applicable to all
drivers, regardless of fault, involved in auto accidents to which
Williston police officers respond. This action leaves ordinance
570 on the books, but the city council has never approved a
method to collect the user fees. Consequently, ordinance 570 is
unenforceable.
Councilman James Cason who previously supported repealing
the user fee ordinance was absent from the council meeting.
Councilman Robinson, who originally called for rescinding
ordinance 570, moved to vote on ordinance 576 but his motion
failed seconding. Subsequently, Councilman Byrd moved to table
ordinance 576 indefinitely. Seconded, the motion passed 3-1:
Councilman Robinson cast the dissenting vote.
In other business, Mayor Hethcoat presented the Levy
County Fair Association with a proclamation declaring the
week of November 8 to 12, 2007 as Levy Cdunty Fair Week.
The proclamation praises the association's volunteers, officers,
directors and its community-spirited founders. It acknowledges
the fair's theme: Levy County's agricultural prominence and
lumber industry heritage; and its many exhibits, entertainments
and competitions including the reestablished Miss Levy County
pageant. Ms. Rita Scott, Levy County Fair Association's
president-elect, accepted the framed proclamation on behalf of
the association.
Police Chief Daniel Davis announced that contrary to state-
wide statistics, which report crime increased by four percent
for the first SIX months of the year, Williston crime is down 16
percent for the same period. However, traffic deaths in Levy
County soared to 13, compared to 4 for 2006's first half.
Williston residents and pass-through motorists may smile at
the camera if they run a red light at the city's busiest intersections
in the future. The council agreed to hear a presentation from
a company that, given the council's approval, will install and
operate photo capture systems-they take a picture of the
offending car's license plate-at no cost to the city other than a
percentage of the fines collected.
Council President Jones announced that Levy County

and incorporated areas of the County, for the cost of providing
Solid Waste services and facilities commencing for the Fiscal
Year beginning on October 1, 2008. The C6unty will consider

commissioners have voted to increase waste tipping fees as
of Nov.30, at least doubling current fees and tripling some
waste category's fees. These increases will further aggravate
Williston's deficit collecting city residents' and businesses'
waste. Williston is the only municipality in Levy County that
still collects and disposes waste itself in lieu of contracting with
private waste management companies. City Manager Coleman,
responding to prior City Council direction, has called for waste
collection and disposal bids from private companies, and is
expecting fair and affordable fees. The council noted, however,
the county's tipping fee increases will equally affect private
waste collection companies, and will reflect in their proposed
fees.

Join the Levy County Public Library System for nightly
showing of the movie based off the book Evan Almighty. In this
2007 Universal Pictures movie, newly-elected to Congress, the
polished, preening newscaster, Evan Baxter, is the next one
anointed by God to accomplish a holy mission walking in
the footsteps of Bruce Almighty. Evan leaves Buffalo behind
and shepherds his family to suburban northern Virginia. Once
there, his life gets turned upside-down when God appears and
mysteriously commands him to build an ark. But his befuddled
family just can't decide whether Evan is having an extraordinary
mid-life crisis or is truly onto something of Biblical proportions.
This movie is rated rated PG for mild rude humor and some peril.
It has a running time of 96 minutes. For more information contact

The clock is ticking as the children bounce off the walls,
eager for the holidays. As you curl up on the couch that special
holiday morning with your fresh cup of coffee, thinking about the
delicious dinner you'll have with your entire family and around
the table, I'd like you to remember Carly.
Only seven years old, Carly has experienced more heartache
and abuse than anyone should ever endure. The youngest of three
children, she's braved nightmares few of us can even imagine. She
was born to a young, uneducated, poor, drug-addicted mother.
Her father wanted nothing to do with her. Carly's mother often
forgot to feed her children, dress them, or send them to school.
When she did remember the three youngsters, she beat them.
Often. though she simply pretended they didn't exist, leaving
one to .... ,
I oln-lv. son I llr y-o.glher siblings from their
horrors. But no\, the) 're all in separate foster homes. They've
been apart for nearly four years. Little Carly is alone, waiting for
someone to give her love she's been craving since birth. When
you tuck your children into bed tonight, reminding them to fall
asleep quickly, think of Carly. Who will tuck her into bed? Who
will fill her holiday mornings with love?
Sadly, Carly's not the only child wondering if someone will ever
love her. This year, Children's Home Society will be providing
holiday wishes for more than 1,400 children. Many of them have
backgrounds similar to Cary's-filled with abuse, rejection and
nightmares. They're never known love, they long for parents to
hold them.
Consider helping us make a child's holiday dreams come
true by becoming a part of our annual holiday drive. There are
countless ways to make a difference for these children during the
holidays and beyond. We invite you to "adopt" a family or child,
or "host an angel tree" at your organization. We are providing
holiday wishes for 1,400 children this year, but we can't continue
without your support. If you are interested in helping us provide
Christmas to the children we serve, please call (866) 427-5451 for
a drop-off location near you.

Easy and Efficient

Ways to Heat Your

Home
Fireplaces rank among the top three features
desired by new homebuyers, according to the
National Association of Home Builders.
Today's consumers not only want ambience but
Sal so waht to capture the heat. Older fireplaces
;. provide the'ambience of a roaring fire but send
S oibst of their heat up the chimney.
Manufacturers have responded with attractive
"fireplaces, stoves and other options that warm
living areas of the home while saving money on
heating bills. Each year, hearth manufacturers
offer more products in sizes, styles and colors to
match any home decor, with features to enhance
overall enjoyment.
In addition, many hearth products can be safely
and affordably installed in an existing room
without the need for major remodeling. Whether
updating an existing fireplace or adding a new one,
there are a variety of options to fit virtually every
budget. These include:
Fireplaces Factory-built systems are
surprisingly inexpensive to purchase and install.
.They use safe, lightweight chimney (or no chimney
at all) and can be easily installed in almost any
room. '
Stoves The most versatile hearth product,
freestanding stoves can be made from cast iron,
steel, or stone and come in a wide selection of sizes
and styles finished in porcelain, enamel or paint.
Today's stoves are very efficient, produce minimal
ask, burn longer and use less fuel.
Fireplace inserts These units install into
existing fireplaces to improve efficiency and
environmental impact by reducing smoke up the
chimney.
Log sets If you have an existing fireplace but
dislike hauling in the logs and scooping out the
ash, a gas or electric log set puts an instant fire at
your fingertips
The experts at the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue
Association remind consumers that it is important
to evaluate product efficiency with the price of
the selected fuel in your area and to have the
product installed by a National Fireplace, Institutes,
