Chiefland Commissioners May Save

Taxpayers by Postponing Financing
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Chiefland commissioners played the financial market at Monday's meeting and they won.
The worst they could do was break even.
They were scheduled to pick a bid from among the lenders who offered to finance the
purchase of property around the city's wellhead for $130,000. But with :E.. ierai Reserve
Board meeting Tuesday and expected to lower the prime rate, commissioners decided to
pass on the awarding a bid to await the Fed's decision.
On Tuesday, the Fed lowered interest rates '% of a percent to 4.25 percent, the third rate
cut in three months.
Normally when the Fed lowers the prime rate, banks follow suit by lowering interest
rates.
Commissioners realized at the meeting Monday that if the prime rate stayed the same, the
bids, which were valid for 60 days, would still be valid. If the prime rate dropped, they could
re-bid the financial package and save money in lower interest rates.
Waiting seemed the best strategy.
"I think it would be a sound position to wait and see what it (the Fed) does," said
Chiefland Mayor-Commissioner Teal Pomeroy.
Chiefland Manager-Grady Hartzog said the wait could save taxpayers money.
"A one quarter or one half percent would be a big bag at $130,000," he said.
Commissioners will seek new. financing bids.
By purchasing the 33 acres around the city's well water system, the city can protect the
ground water supply from contaminants.
In other business, Chiefland commissioners put the finishing touches on the Chiefland's
Evaluation and Appraisal Report, a blueprint for growth and development, and sent it to the
state for approval.
"I believe we're ready to move it on to the state," said Chiefland Mayor-Commissioner
Teal Pomeroy.
The document is mandated by the state as part of the comprehensive planning process. It
is a seven-year update to the city's comprehensive plan. Chiefland Manager Grady Hartzog
said getting approval of the Evaluation and Appraisal Report would be useful in dealing with
large annexations the city is planning.
The commission cancelled a second meeting this month, scheduled for Christmas Eve.
Commissioners decided to wait until January to conduct their next meeting.

Drug Dealers Arrested In Williston

Fifteen suspected drug dealers have been arrested in the East Williston area on drug
charges.
The Drug Task Force, which consists of the Levy County. Sheriff's Office and the
Chiefland Police Department, have been investigating and buying narcotics in the East
Williston area. The investigation resulted in an estimated value of confiscated drugs at
$ 3,400, $ 1474 in cash, two vehicles seized, and one firearm recovered. The three-hour
round up on Thurs., Dec. 6, netted 15 people with 45 felony charges, 2 misdemeanor
arrests, and 2 outstanding warrant arrests.
Sheriff Johnny Smith has a zero tolerance policy for any crime, but recognizes that
drug activities impact the
community in burglaries, ,' ,
thefts and robberies. The
Levy County Sheriff's
Office's mission is to reduce -- c 7-
crime, especially during
the holiday season, which
traditionally increases
throughout the country.
The Drug Task Force will
continue to monitor the drug
activity in Levy County.
Anyone with information
on drug activity can call
Commander Duane Dyksta
at (352) 486-5111, or if
you would to like remain
anonymous can call Crime Lt. Sullivan with the evidence.

Cedar Key School

Recognized as One of

Top High Schools
U.S. News & World Report, the well-known national
news magazine, has included Cedar Key School in its
ranking of outstanding public high schools throughout
the nation.
According to the magazine's website, Cedar Key
School has been designated a Bronze Medal School.
The Levy County school was one of the nearly 1,600
high schools that received Gold, Silver, or Bronze Medal
ranking in the survey. The top 100 high schools were
designated Gold Medal schools, while 405 received
Silver Medal status, and 1,086 were named Bronze
Medal schools.
A total of 18,970 high schools from 40 states were
included in the survey. That puts Cedar Key in the top 12
percent of these high schools.
Superintendent Clifton V. Norris said he was elated to
see CKS. receive this recognition.
"I am proud of the commitment of the CK staff and
the efforts they put forth to provide a quality educational
experience for their students," said Norris.
U.S. News & World Report used data from the 2005-
2006 school year to analyze the high schools, and
schools were selected based on having sufficient data:
from that year to conduct the analysis. State proficiency
standards were used as the measuring benchmarks.
Schools with the highest scores in these categories
qualified for either Silver or Bronze Medal status. To be
ranked in the top 100, schools also had to score high in
factors that affect students' readiness for college.
The extensive review, conducted by analysts from
School Evaluation Services assessed reading and
math results, percentage of disadvantaged students.
performance levels of least advantaged students
(minorities and low-income) and enrollment and
achievement statistics in Advanced Placement programs.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs. Dec. 6 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a busy day as each member had to find
a place to work to get around all the quilts and crafts. The
quilt room is full of tables with lots of all kind of crafts that
make beautiful gifts. It was ajoyful day as we had ladies
from Dudley Farms come to visit and have lunch with us.
Doris Beauchamp volunteers over there and invited the
ladies to come visit.
So far we have had a great quilt show. We have had
any visitors from many places, and we notice the people
from Canada are here to get out of the cold. We do leave
everything up until after the first of the year and you can
come out and get great gifts.
We want to thank Mary Mahoney from Gainesville who
brought over so many beautiful scraps for us to use. Many
projects are made from fabric that is brought in and we can
use all of them. We don't throw any away, we end up making
pin cushions.
Lunch was so good with meatloaf, rice, sweet potato
casserole, lots of vegetables, salads and desserts. As always
we have plenty, and Doris Beauchamp's chicken and rice is
so good.

IoKA IRA
Today's Individual Retirement Account
(IRA) choices give us the flexibility to
build a program to meet your retirement
dreams, whether they be traveling, owning
a condo on the beach or building a cabin
By MEGAN QUINN in the woods. The IRA building blocks
CONTRIBUTING WRITER can help fund your retirement dreams.
However, a common question investors
have is whether to fund a Traditional or a Roth IRA when saving for retirement. Read
on to discover the differences and consider which 'IRA might be right for you.
With a Roth IRA, you pay taxes now and never again. You can invest up to $5,000
annually ($4,000 if under age 50) after taxes and your money accumulates tax-free.
Another great feature of Roth IRAs is that individuals over 70V2 years with earned
income may continue to contribute annually; this is not the case with a Traditional
IRA. Distributions on earnings are tax-free after five years and age 59 /2; however, a
10% federal penalty tax may apply for earlier distributions. It's important to speak to a
tax advisor to find out how premature distributions affect your taxes arid if you qualify
to contribute based on annual adjusted gross income limitations.
With a Traditional IRA, you can potentially receive a tax deduction now and
defer taxes until you spend your IRA later. You can also invest up to $5,000 annually
($4,000 if under age 50) and gain two tax benefits: a deduction on your federal
income taxes (see tax professional to determine if you qualify) and money grows tax-
deferred until you withdraw it. Withdrawals are subject to income taxes and prior to
age 59 '2, a 10% federal penalty tax may apply. You can also convert a Traditional
IRA to a Roth IRA.
So, now you know the differences between these IRAs. You may want to consider
a Roth IRA if you or your spouse is employed, no matter your age, and even if you
already have a retirement plan with your employer. However, you might consider the
Traditional IRA if your household income is higher than allowed for a Roth IRA.
It's important to consult both your tax advisor and investment professional when
making your IRA investment decisions.

Christmas


Books

BY THOMAS SOWELL
TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
I Books are good gifts to receive and even better gifts to give
because you can get books without half the hassles involved in
buying many other kinds of gifts. You can easily buy books from the
Intemet and avoid the mob scenes at the shopping malls.
This has been a good year for books that shoot down false and nonsensical notions on major issues
of our time.
The Immigration Solution is an excellent new book that discusses illegal immigration without the
political rhetoric, spin, demagoguery, and unsubstantiated claims that have become all too common in
the media and among politicians.
It was written by three scholars at leading think tanks Heather Mac Donald and Steve Malanga
of the Manhattan Institute and Victor Davis Hanson of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.
Unlike many other scholars, they know how to write so that the general public can understand what
they are saying.
Mugged by Reality by John Agresto is an eyewitness account of life inside Iraq by someone who
does not take either the Bush administration line or the Congressional Democrats' line. Nor does he
hesitate to admit that what he saw in Iraq changed the opinions with which he first entered the country.
It is a sobering and insightful account of what has happened and of the problems with
various alternative courses of action. It is one of those books that adds a new dimension to, your
understanding, whether you agree or disagree with the author.
The Prince of Darkness by Robert Novak is a big book detailing half a century of his experiences
in Washington, dealing with both political figures and other members of the print and broadcast media.
He names names.
This book should be especially valuable to those young people who have been brainwashed with
the notion that it is somehow nobler to be in "public service" than in the private sector.
For those who like history, there is a new history of one of the most decisive decades in American
history the decade of the Great Depression of the 1930s titled The Forgotten Man by Amity Shlaes.
It tells a revealing story of the people and the policies that shaped that decade, as that decade has
shaped much of what has happened with government intervention ini the economy ever since then.
For those who want more in-depth analysis of the economic consequences of New Deal policies,
Jim Powell's book FDR 's Folly would make an excellent supplement to Amity Shlaes' book.
Until Proven Innocent by Stuart Taylor and K.C. Johnson is an account of the Duke University
"rape" case that goes far beyond the misdeeds of the disgraced District Attorney Michael Nifong.
Until Proven Innocent turns over a lot of rocks and shows what was crawling underneath in the
media and in academia, as well as in law enforcement, that produced a lynch mob atmosphere in
which evidence meant nothing.
Because Duke University is by no means unique in the attitudes of its faculty and administration,
what happened at Duke could happen at any,number of prestigious universities around the country. It
is something to think about for those who have their hearts set on getting into Prestige U.
An excellent present for those parents and students who want to find academic institutions that
have not succumbed to the ideological corruption found at Duke and other colleges and universities
would be the book Choosing the Right College.


The latest edition, just published, is over a thousand pages long and goes into the campus
atmosphere at numerous colleges and universities, in addition to dealing with academic questions,
such as the presence or absence of a curriculum.
A very moving account of the life of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas can be found in his
very readable and insightful memoir, My Grandfather's Son, which has been on the best-seller list for
eight weeks thus far.
In these politically correct times, we are only supposed to say "happy holidays," lest we offend
someone by being politically incorrect, but I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dear Editor,
By all measures, Chiefland's Christmas and Winter Festival of 2007 was bigger, brighter
and better than ever. Vendors are asking to return next year, one of the church groups having
earned over $500. Attendance exceeded 2,000. More people brought lawn chairs and stayed
a spell.
It takes a gigantic number of people to put on an event like this, and we hope each of
them will accept this letter of appreciation. Because we charge no admission fee, their
volunteerism and generosity are essential to making it happen. To these special people: God
bless you. You brought this year's festival theme, "A Season for Giving," to life, and into
many lives. Thank you.
There were raffles and drawings galore, and enough crafts and novelties to make a good
dent in anyone's Christmas shopping list. Refrigerator magnets, sand jars and sugar cookies
lined up to be assembled and decorated. There was a moonwalk for the little ones and magic
tricks or airbrushed body art for the daring.
The entertainment was as diverse as it was captivating. The stage hosted our high school
band, our theatre groups, tots dancing, choirs and others. The chow was plentiful with hand-
squeezed lemonade or specialty coffees, hot dogs and chili, chicken dinners or Brunswick
stew, and funnel cake or delightful home-baked goods.
There were more parade entries than ever before, and more care put into their decorating
and lighting. The Christmas spirit radiated from bicycles and horses, airboats, floats and fire
engines.
Post-parade celebrations with dance, music and song created more magic and memories
thanks to the thousands of white lights woven through the trees, and Santa in the gazebo,
hearing wishes.
To all attendees and spectators: Thanks for your support. We hope you enjoyed it, and
welcome your feedback. To the critics: Thank you for your interest and we'll see you out
there next year, hands on. This assumes a repeat performance; how about "Make a Joyful
Noise" for a theme, emphasizing Christmas music. The lines are open.
And to all Chiefland area residents: On behalf of the Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of
Commerce, may you have the best of the season, the merriest Christmas and a happy and
healthy new year.
Sincerely,
Janet Minor, Executive Director
Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce

SHERIFF'S


911 WHAT'S

YOUR EMERGENCY?
,I[


SHERIFF
JOHNNY SMITH


M Once you have summoned help, you want the emergency
responders to find you quickly. It doesn't matter what you
need law enforcement, fire department or ambulance service
- they all have to find the house first! The old saying about "following the smoke to the fire"
doesn't work.
When you dial 9-1-1 it means you need help now, so I wanted to give out some helpful
information that will help us find you. Sometimes in gated communities, people will call the gate
guard or Neighborhood Watch wheri they see something suspicious or need help. We suggest
always calling 9-1-1 first and talk directly to the operator who can immediately begin to dispatch
the necessary help. Then call Neighborhood Watch to advise them of your situation.
Having to call 9-1-1 can be a stressful situation and the caller may be confused or even
hysterical, making it difficult for the operator to get the necessary information. To help with this,
keep an easy to read list next to each phone with your quadrant address and phone number on it.
When you call 9-1-1 expect an operator to ask you questions such as your name, address and
phone number. Sometimes you may get agitated with the operator asking questions, thinking that
help is not enroute until this information is obtained. I would like to assure you that emergency
help is being sent the very minute we received the 9-1-1 call. Most people want to know why this
is necessary, since the information is on the screen automatically. Well, you may be reporting an
emergency that is not at your address, such as an automobile accident that happened three miles
from your house. There is also that possibility of errors on the computer screen. So we try to
verify the screen information to make sure we have accurate information when dispalching the
appropriate emergency services.
Many people live in areas that are confusing for others to find. We recommend having \\ it icl
driving directions from a well-known intersection to your house, and then test your own driving
directions.
Your house numbers are another sure way of helping us find you. Make sure they are at least
three inches high and mounted on your house in a contrasting color. If your residence is more
than 50 feet from the road, you should have a sign by your driveway entrance with your house
numbers. I would like to remind you that posting your address is also a county ordinance.
I hope that you never have a 9-1-1 emergency to call in, but if you do, I'm confident that these
suggestions will assist you in getting the help you need. If you
do not have an emergency I would ask that you not call 9-1-1.
Instead, call the non-eiergency numbers which are (352) 486-
5111 or (800) 538-9767.

Walk to Bethlehem Nightly"
By Jacquie Potter
Walk to Bethlehem nightly 7 to 9 p.m. through Dec.
23 at 4551 SE SR 121 between CR 326 and CR 464 in
Williston. *-' *-
It isn't a play. It isn't a pageant. It is encountering Christ
and the mystery of Christmas the way we believe it all
began.
Bring your family, your friends your church groups and
enter the gates to an evening you won't soon forget, and it is
free.
During your visit you will be able to observe the sights
and sounds of that night 2000 years ago encountering Bible
history all along your walk.
As you enter the gates to Bethlehem's marketplace with
Mary and Joseph desperately trying to find a place in the
Inn, you will be reminded of the conditions of life for a
family living in this first century city as the vendors go about
the business of trying to sell their wares.
Among the many sights you will see, Caleb the Carpenter
will be busy making crosses for those whose fate is death.

Miss Homey Says...


I Good morning! Ready or not Santa is on his
way, so try to be good or he might just pass
you by. Me? I try to be good all year, but if I
am bad, I try to be good and bad, uh huh, do
too. Hush Donald, Mary loves you and so do I, if no one else
does, and.we know your ole hounds do too, just like my little
dogs love me. How do I know they love me? Cause they
show me by their actions and they wag their tails, not their
tongues, (so true)!
I have so much to do today, but no one to make me do it,
so if and when it gets done will be ok, if rot, that's ok, too!
Talked to Barbara yesterday, and she told me Ray is doing
well, so I thank God for that. Isn't it great to have a prayer
answering God? Oh where would I be without Jesus and his
love and mercy?
I guess I will go to my sister's for Christmas Day. All of
her kids and my oldest son will be there, too. Mattie and I are
going shopping after Christmas-shoe shopping-is there any
other? I just love shoes.
I'm going to make this short and sweet and promise to do
better next time, ok? So until next week God bless each of
you, and a Merry Christmas to all.
So says,
Miss Honey

Levy County Humane Society Seeks

Help in Building a New Shelter


What happens when you put together BBQ, Chris Cagle
and the wild west? You get an event that will help homeless
animals in Levy County find loving, permanent homes.
On Feb. 22, the Levy County Humane Society-in
conjunction with Wild O Productions and the Florida BBQ
Association-present the Bark & Purr Wild West Fest and
BBQ Cook Off. The event kicks off at 12 p.m. and features
a wild west theme complete with trick roping, stunts and a
mechanical bull. The Florida BBQ Association will host a
sanctioned 30-team BBQ cook off competition along with
arts and crafts, live music and a variety of food.
"The humane society needed an event to help raise
money for a new shelter, and this seemed like the best way
to go," said Bill Foster, owner of Wild O Productions. "I've
always had a heart for animals, but when I heard some of the
stories from the Humane Society, they really tugged at my
heartstring and I wanted to help."
Wild O Productions is working with the Levy County
Humane Society to plan and facilitate the festival and bring
in a top artist like Chris Cagle to create a successful event.
Aside from family fun and excitement, the mission of the

Bark & Purr Wild West Fest and BBQ Cook Off is to help
homeless, neglected and abused animals.
"The only facility the county has is Levy County Animal
Services, but we need another option," said Director of
Education for Levy County Humane Society, Michelle
Hagan. Right now, the county relies on volunteer foster
families to house the orphaned animals. Potential adopters
can view the animals online-at such sites as Petfinder.com-
and set appointments to view them. This process, however,
can turn some people off says Hagan.
"People call and expect to come to our shelter to view
the animals they see online and are disappointed to find
they have to make an appointment to see each animal
individually. It's not very convenient, and because of that,
some people go elsewhere."
Hagan also states that all animals must be spayed or
neutered before being adopted, and that process can take up
to four months because participating animal hospitals are
often overbooked.
"When that happens, people sometimes forget about the
animal, and we have to find them a new home," Hagan says.
The Humane Society hopes the Bark and Purr Wild
West Fest can help change their situation by raising needed
funds for a new shelter. The proposed shelter will have
ample space to house homeless animals, as well as an area
to perform on-site spays and neuters so potential adopters
won't have a lengthy wait.
"We have so many animals that need good homes. Many
of them have been abused and neglected and we need a safe
place for them to stay until we can find homes for them.
We're really hoping people will find the time to help these
animals by coming to this event," Hagan says.
The Bark & Purr Wild West Fest and BBQ Cook Off
admission is $15 in advance for adults and $6 for children.
Adult tickets are $23 at the gate. Arm bands for BBQ fare
are only $5 for all ages.
Sponsors, vendors, and volunteers are still needed to.

Red Devils Stop Dixie County 60-52


By STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR

The Williston basketball team finally, after a two-week lay off, got to play a basketball
game. It turned out to be a district game against the Dixie County Bears.
The Red Devils were scheduled to play the Newberry Panthers last Friday night, but due
-to Newberry's football game at the state semi-finals, Williston agreed to reschedule that
game for later in December.
The Red Devils have not seen action since November 20, when they held on to beat a
scrappy Bronson Eagle team.
The Red Devils are now four weeks into the season and are 2-0, 1-0 in district play.
The Red Devils jumped out to a 15-10 lead at the end of the first quarter but they
committed at least a dozen turnovers in the quarter.
The Red Devils ended the first half with a 30-22 lead. The Red Devils were led by two
sophomore starters: Kelcey Coleman and Deonte Welch. Each player had eight points in the
half.
The Red Devils came out in the third quarter as cold as the weather outside the gym.
They missed at least six or seven easy lay ups, and several short jump shots.
The Dixie County Bears, on the other hand, came out red hot and tied the game at 32-32
before the Red Devils called a time out.
With Seniors Devin Timmons and CJ James starting to contribute to the Red Devils
efforts and Coleman and a third sophomore Issac Floyd hitting three-point baskets, the Red
Devils went back in the lead after trailing by two points.
The score as the third quarter came to an end was Williston 46 and Dixie County 40.,
The fourth quarter became a run and shoot affair with both teams creating as many
turnovers as they did baskets.
The Red Devils hung on to win the game 60-52.
Sophomores Kelcey Coleman and Deonte Welch led the Red Devils in scoring with 15
points each, while sophomore Issac Floyd added 10 points.
For the Dixie County Bears it was Devin Henderson and Steve Gold both with 12 points.
The Williston JV team won their game against the Dixie County Bears JV team 78-44.

Lady Eagles Win First Soccer Game in Early Lead Pushes

By DAVID LEACH Basketball Victory


FOR THE JOURNAL


It took just five games before the newly created Bronson
High School varsity girls soccer team won its first game,
S'2-1, against the visiting Hawthorne Lady Hornets.
The Lady Eagles added another page to school history
by notching the program's very first victory: Now they
have a leader in the "goals scored" category: Nikki Lever,
who scored the first two goals ever for the Lady Eagles.
With 16 minutes gone in the first half, Lever hit a
solid shot from midfield that sailed over the heads of the
defenders and into the-upper right-hand corer of the-net,
iming the bal~fflittle chance. Thfe Lady Eagles wedf
jubilant, expe iencing teirrfirst-el er goal'and 'first-ever
lead.
With seven minutes gone in the second half, Lever hit a-
-rebound inside the box and powered a shot to the back of
Ithe net. Both goals were made possible by a tremendously
;improved team that kept a lot of the play forward.
With 16 minutes left in the game, the referee called
d a hand ball in the penalty box against Bronson. Crystal
McMullen, fullback for Hawthorne, took the penalty kick
and hit'the bottom right corner for the score.
The defense, led by Sara Shouse, did a good job of
clearing the ball. Angela Massa was very, effective in
,midfield, keeping possession of the ball and advancing it
upfield, and Lever has now shown a knack for finding the
back of the net. They have formed the nucleus of a winning
team for Bronson High School.
Goalie Kimberly Buan was relatively untested.
However, her drop kicks were greatly improved, and her
performance added to an overall effort by the Bronson
Lady Eagles to produce their first win.
After the game, cold and wet head coach Doug Robeson
said his team had practiced more ball control and playing
the positions.

Despite Early Lead, Chiefland Hands Win to Union County


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL


The Union County Tigers varsity basketball team traveled to
Chiefland last Tuesday night, and they left with a hard-earned
victory, 51-42, over the Chiefland Indians.
Chiefland's head coach Mark Lundy had the Indians ready to
play. They showed some mid-season confidence with crisp passing
and good moves to the basket. The Indians jumped ahead early and
kept the energy level high.
The Tigers appeared, to be somewhat surprised by the Indians'
quick start, and the first-half play was fast paced.
: Sampson Jackson, who led
the scoring for the Tigers, made
several key plays at the end
of the half. His three-pointer,
nothing but net, gave the Tigers
a 29-24 lead. Jackson was a key
factor throughout the game for
the Tigers.
"He's got the shot,"
remarked one Chiefland student.

The Bronson varsity basketball team traveled to Crystal
River to take on the Pirates, and the Eagles dominated from
the tip-off to the final buzzer, winning 62-25.
The Eagles launched a flurry of scoring that caught the
Pirates by surprise. William Harris started the fireworks with
an early fast break and a score that looked a lot like a dunk,
and the team continued to rattle off points in a well-balanced
offensive attack.

Jeremy Mayes line up

While Terrance Dukes,
Rodalfo Contreras and C.J.
King guided the Eagles to
a 40-9 lead in the first half,
the entire Eagle team had
scoring power. The Pirates
were uncertain who was
going to score against them
next.
Leading all scorers was
Kelby Barber, who was an
offensive and defensive
threat for the Eagles. His
efforts under the basket
were another key to the
Eagles' success, and he
was a consistent producer
throughout the entire game.
In the fourth quarter, Joey
Sparrow came off the bench
for the Eagles and drained a
three-pointer. This shot took
any remaining wind out of
the Pirates' sails.


After the junior varsity Pirates overwhelmed the Eagles,
45-19, in earlier action, the Eagles' varsity team clearly
proved they were not headed for the same fate.
Actually, last year's strong junior varsity Eagles formed
the basis of this year's formidable varsity team, and instead
of having a single star, they have a team of great performers
that work together. They may have chinks in their armor, but
the Pirates could not uncover any in this game.

the Lady Red Devils coach Jason Odom was left wondering
how his young freshmen would respond.
It did not take him long to find out that junior Kim
Dobbins is the real deal, and freshmen Erica Mason, Kene'
Mincey and Kae'tta Jackson can play under pressure.
Brown, who dislocated a bone and a bruised her arm, may
not see Red Devil action until after the holidays. ,
All of the Lady Red Devil players who saw action in the
game stepped up to fill the void left by their leading scorer
and rebounder.
Heather Porter, Simone Cannady, Mallary Brochetti and
A'sha McDonald all contributed off the bench to keep the
Lady Red Devils in control during the closely fought contest.
The Lady Red Devils led by 5 points at halftime, but
the Lady Tigers came roaring out to start the third quarter
and tied the game, 36-36, on three straight baskets by Anne

Marie LaRocque at the 3:48 mark of the quarter.
The teams exchanged baskets several time as LaRocque
hit two more shots from the top of the free-throw lane.
The Red Devil freshmen showcased their play as Mason
put down a three-point shot and Jackson stole the ball to
find a wide-open Mincey for the easy layup. The Lady Red
Devils pulled back on top, 46-40, as the third quarter ended.
The Lady Tigers continued to play aggressively as Kim
Alderman hit several Ithree-point shots, tying the game again
at 48-48..
The game seesawed back and forth until it was tied at 57-
57 with 24 seconds left in the game.
Red Devil Dobbins was fouled and stepped to the free-
throw line where the Red Devils have failed all season long,
hitting about 20 percent of free throws as a team.
Tonight had been no different for the Lady Red Devils as
they had missed about 15 free throws up to this point.
Dobbins hit the front end of a 1-1 to give the Lady Red
Devils the lead, 58-57.
The Red Devils missed the second shot, and the Lady
Tigers raced down the floor. With five seconds remaining,
the Lady Red Devils' defense forced a travel by the Lady
Tigers.
The Lady Red Devils put the ball in play, and the clock
ran out, giving them the win in a pressure-packed game.
"Our team is very young, and five are just freshmen and
two are sophomores. And they just played in a real pressure-
packed game and played well," said head coach Odom after
the game, adding, "I think we have a great future in ladies
basketball in the makings at Williston."
Mason led Red Devil scoring with 15 points, followed by
Jackson with 12 points and Mincey with 11 points. Dobbins
had 6 points and played an outstanding game under the
boards for the Lady Red Devils.
For the Lady Tigers it was two players accounting for all
but 7 points. LaRocque had 29 points, and Alderman had 21
points.

P.K. Yonge Freezes Lady Indian Scoring


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR

The Chiefland Lady Indians basketball team started cold, stayed cold and then froze. The
Lady Indians could not buy a basket from anyplace on the floor for 29 of the 32 minutes in
the game, as they fell to the P.K. Yonge Blue Wave, 64-6.
In the first 90 seconds of the game, the Lady Blue Wave jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead.
The Lady Indians made one free throw, and 20 seconds later, Jerrica Grimsley made a field
goal on an easy layup to make the score 17-3.
Little did anyone in the gym know the Lady Indians would go without another basket
until the last two minutes of the game.
The ball would just not go in the basket for the Lady Indians.

scoring almost at will as they
took a 28-3 lead to end the
first quarter.
The Blue Wave raised
their lead to 41-3 as the first
half came to a close.
Again in the third quarter
the Lady Indians were
getting off plenty of shots,
but none would fall in the
basket, which seemed to
have a lid on it.
The third quarter ended
with the Lady Blue Wave
holding a 54-3 lead.
With 4:28 remaining in
the game and leading 60-3,
the Blue Wave put in five

3 Structures To Target This Winter
By Scott Suggs
If we're going to be honest about it, fishing in the winter isn't always the most
pleasant activity. It can be cold, windy and sometimes getting the fish to cooperate
can be frustrating. But just because the calendar has been flipped to December
doesn't mean that you should park the boat and resign yourself to hanging lights and
watching football.
Catching fish in the winter requires some knowledge about the body of water that
you are fishing and a decided amount of patience. Slowing down your presentations
will go a long way towards ensuring you get more than a runny nose for your time
on the lake. So before you head out for your next day of fishing, try focusing on
these three types of structure.
Bluffs: A lot of tournaments are won year round on rock bluffs. Big smallmouth
and largemouth both like to hang on these bluff ledges during this time of year. But
enticing strikes from finicky bass in winter can be a challenge. Fish each spot slowly
and don't limit yourself to just one lure or technique. In clear water, natural colored
worms can be very effective for a smallmouth bite. A Berkley PowerBait Hand Pour
Finesse Worm fished on a dropshot rig that is worked slowly on the ledges works
extremely well.
But don't forget that crayfish also inhabit these rock bluffs and a big jig tipped
with a PowerBait Chigger Craw will also work. Just keep the retrieve slow. Lipless
crankbaits like a Frenzy Rattl'r fished parallel to the bluffs is also can entice strikes,
but be careful that your retrieve isn't too fast. Also remember that shad,and other, ,
baitfish swim these bluffs during winter so a Berkley Gulp! Jerk Shad Texas rigged
with a wide-gap hook and swimmed through the desired depth can result in a lot of
hook ups.
Main-lake points: Main-lake points hold bass pretty much year round. But during
winter, when the lake is low,,they really start to bunch up on these structures. Find a
point that is just out of the swift, main lake current and there is likely to be a bunch
of bass feeding on baitfish and crayfish. If there is deep water nearby, that deeper
water is likely to hold bass, too. -
These out-of-the current spots can hold huge schools of bass, bunched up, usually
in one very small spot. This means either dragging bottom-bumping lures, or fan
casting, Carolina-rigged lures like a PowerBait Power Lizard or a Gulp! Turtleback
Worm and looking for that instinct strike. Wood cover along these spots always
harbor the bigger largemouth's in the area. Try laydowns, washed in debris, stumps
and brush piles and go after them with a jig and trailer.
Humps: Smallmouth bass and a surprisingly good number of largemouths, can
both be found around islands, submerged humps, sand bars and ridges, located
throughout lakes. Because of low water levels in winter, many are now visible;
others can be found by paying attention to your electronics. Smallmouth relate to
the edge of the swift current, waiting for an easy meal. Largemouth tend to hug the
bottom and hang out in the cover (stumps, ledges).
Fishing these areas can be tough when the weather is extremely cold, but slowly
down and finesse are of the utmost importance whenever fishing these areas.
Dropshotting small, straight-tailed finesse worms like the PowerBait Hand Pour
Finesse Worm or Carolina rigging small, finesse lures, such as worms, lizards,
grubs, jerkbaits and crayfish imitations, will entice more strikes in very cold water
than baits with a larger profile. Lighter line also works better in these situations, so
make sure your spinning reel is in good working order.
Don't let a little cold keep you off the lake this winter. There's a lot less boat
traffic this time of year and still a lot offish to be caught. Just make sure to slow
down your presentation and downsize your line and focus your attention on these
three wintertime hotspots and pretty soon everyone will want to go with you.

Finding The Right Home
By John Addison
No matter what state the housing market is in, homebuyers
would be smart to remember a simple tip: Experts say not to spend
more than two and a half times your income on a house.
Sticking to that rule can help keep your mortgage payments
affordable and keep you from being "house poor."
Here are a few additional tips for finding a home that you can
afford:
Keep An Eye Out For ARMS-Adjustable-Rate Mortgages, or
ARMS, have monthly payments that could eventually adjust with the
market. Unless you definitely plan to move in just a few years, look
for fixed-rate loans in which the interest rate is set for the life of the
loan.
Beware Of Interest Only-Interest-only loans are ticking time
bombs of debt. Why? You pay only the interest on the loan and not
the principal.
Avoid Debt-Being able to borrow money isn't the same as
being able to afford it. Before you buy a house, remember additional
expenses that could be tacked on to mortgage payments-things

For Your Budget
such as property taxes, utilities, maintenance and homeowner's
insurance costs.
Protecting Your Investment
Once you purchase a home, take steps to protect the
investment with the right insurance. Kiplinger's says life insurance
is a must for homeowners. It recommends buying inexpensive
term policies. But you might be able to cut insurance costs further
by combining all your policies-life, auto and home-under one
company.
Remember to shop around, too. Insurance rates can vary
from company to company, so it could be worth your while to see
what's out there before making a purchasing decision. The Web is
a great resource for comparison shopping, with some sites even
giving you several quotes from different insurance companies at
once.
Finally, whether you own a home or are shopping for one, it's
important to understand how to take control of your financial life.

Union Rep
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

podium, and introduced himself as a representative of
AFSCME. Jordan began his remarks complimenting the
council for its recent across-the-board 2 percent merit pay
raise for all eligible Williston city employees.
Jordan next asked the council to inform its employees
they have the right to join a union without threats or
intimidation. When City Manager Jim Coleman asked if
Jordan had knowledge of any Williston employee being
threatened or intimidated about joining a union, Jordan
said there have been occurrences. Subsequently, both
Coleman and Council Vice-president Jerry Robinson
pressed Jordan to provide specifics enabling the city
manager, council, or both to take corrective action. Jordan
repeatedly declined specifics, ultimately stating, "If we
become the representative of your employees we'll work
them out then." Jordan further summarized the union's
usual practice of informal discussion with management,
followed by formal action only if needed.
Williston Fire Chief Lamar Stegall, after stating he is a
union member, said he recognized Jordan's presence and
actions as typical union tactics.
City Attorney Norm Fugate agreed with Stegall's
remark, and said, "At this point in their organizing,
they [the union] will try to force a wedge between the
managers and employees." Turning to the council he
added, "You don't want to buy into that." He summarized
all parties' rights succinctly: "Employees can unionize;
the City can educate." During further discussion, Fugate
clarified that the union, if instated, will become the
bargaining agent for all qualified city employees. Under
Florida state law employees of a unionized workplace
need not join the union. However, the union is their
negotiating voice irrespective of their membership status.
In addition, under state law, public employees are not
permitted to strike.
Approximately 40 city employees are eligible to vote
for or against unionizing. Although a firm date has not
been set, voting may occur as early as late December
2007 or early January 2008. Police officers, who are
already unionized, fire fighters and certain other part-time
employees are not eligible.
In other business, the council tabled three of 17 agenda
items, until the next regular council meeting Jan. 8, 2008,
because council members Byrd and Cason were absent.
The three council members present agreed the items
worthy of a full council's consideration.
Council member Steve Holcomb reported status of
the preparations for the dedication ceremony of "Johnny
T. Henry Celebration Park" on Dec. 15 beginning 11
a.m. Highlights include the Williston High School Band.
They will perform their Christmas Concert. The band
will also present the concert Saturday, 2 p.m. Dec. 16,
in the Williston High School Auditorium. Donations are
requested . ., ... ....
Williston voters \\ill elect two council members and
a mayor on March 4, 2008. Councilman Jerry Robinson,
Councilman James "Jake" Cason, and Mayor R. Gerald
Hethcoat's terms-of-office are expiring. For prospective
candidates, qualifying dates, are, noon Monday, Jan. 14,
2008, until noon, Friday, Jan. 18, 2008. Voter will also
say Yes or No to changing council members' and mayor's
terms of office from two years to three years. Ordinance
580, which provides for submitting the term-of-office
change to referendum in the March 2008 general election,
passed its second and final reading 3-0.

Avoid Being the Victim of a Holiday Scam


By Florida's AARP State President Judy Thames
While you're out battling the holiday shopping
crowds to get the prized gift of the season, others
are trying to get their hands on another prize your
most private information. From credit-card numbers
to Social Security numbers, holiday scammers want
to take it all. Here are a few tips for avoiding holiday
scams.
Never click on links inside e-mails from strangers.
Be aware that online retailers or credit-card
companies will never ask for your account number via
e-mail.
Make sure all of your accounts are protected by
strong passwords. Never use obvious passwords when
protecting your financial information.
Be diligent about checking and double checking
all account statements during the holiday season to
make sure there are no unusual charges or withdrawals.
If you shop online always be sure the site uses an
encrypted page when asking for financial information.
After an online purchase you may receive an e-
mail alerting you to a problem in processing that asks
you to re-send your account information. This is a
scam. Do not re-send your information. Instead, call the
company to double check that your order went through
properly, and delete the e-mail.
Many people chose to give gift cards during the


holiday season, but beware. There is a gift-card scam
in which people copy down the activation number
on the back of the gift card and wait for someone to
purchase the card. The scammer then activates the card
and can now go on an online shopping spree.
One way to protect yourself and those you
purchase gift cards for is to only buy cards that have the
PIN concealed by scratch-off material or a peel. Another
way is to purchase gift cards that remain behind the counter.
During the holiday season many charities are
overwhelmed by the generosity they experience, but
when giving to any charity, know your facts.
Stay away from charities that solicit door-to-door,
over the phone, or via e-mail because this may be a
sign of an illegitimate charity. Whenever making a
donation, look for the Better Business Bureau seal of
approval. Here are two sites that can help you choose
which charities will benefit most from your donation:
http://www.give.org or charitynavigator.org.
Finally, remember that the season is really about
thinking of others. Consider giving the gift of health
and financial security to your loved ones and future
generations by joining Divided We Fail (www.
dividedwefail.org). Divided We Fail seeks to engage
millions of ordinary Americans, businesses, nonprofit
organizations and political leaders to find bipartisan
solutions that ensure accessible, affordable, quality
health care and long-term
financial security for all.


Do more than dream. Plan.

Tips to Prevent Home
Burglaries
With many people away, visiting friends or just out of the
house shopping for the holidays, burglars will have countless
good prospects. Experts agree that this is a ver vulnerable time for
homeowners. "People are busy and distracted," said Ray Palermo,
director of public relations for Response Insurance. "They are
not always focusing on he more mundane things of life, like
making sure your home or apartment is secure." He offered a few
precautions to help prevent homeowners from falling victim to
thieves during this time of year.
SStart by making a full exterior examination of your house.
Make sure all locked doors and windows have a tight fit when
closed. Check to see if there is any "wiggle room" that could give
a thief enough space to jimmy it open. Walk around your whole
property to ensure there is nothing that can be used to climb
to upper floors. Look in your windows to make sure blinds are
positioned to screen the interior view, but not closed completely.
You may want to move any computers or TVs away from prying
eyes. Never leave an "emergency key" hidden outside your
house.
Always leave your home in a secure state, regardless of
the amount of time you expect to be away. A burglar watching.
your house is capable of taking what he wants in a few carefully
planned moments.
When you are away from the house, particularly for an
extended period be sure to make it look lived-in. Put timers on
a few lights at varied times, put a timer on a radio set to a talk-
station, install a dusk/dawn outside light or motion detector, ask a
neighbor to pick up your mail and any circulars that might pile up
on your doorstep, and stop delivery of newspapers or other mail.
In many instances installing a home alarm system will give


Resurfacing of US 19 In Levy County Begins Jan. 2

with Lane Closures


The resurfacing of a ten-mile section of US 19 between
the Withlacoochee River Bridge in Inglis and the Ten
Mile Creek bridge near Lebanon Station is scheduled to
begin Mon. Dec. 10, announced the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) Public Information Office.
D.A.B. Construction, Inc. of Inglis has been hired by
the FDOT to complete the $6.5 million project. Work will
include:
Removing and replacing the existing pavement.
Replacing or extending existing drainage pipes to meet
current standards
Adding drainage pipes under driveways and side roads
Adding wheelchair accessible ramps on the sidewalk at
the intersection of US 19 and County Road 40.
Replacing existing guardrail on the Withlacoochee River
bridge.
Paving entrances to side streets and driveways.
Upgrading the signals at the intersection of US 19 and
CR 40.
Adding new pedestrian signals with a crossing
countdown display.
Motorists should expect daytime lane closures beginning
Jan. 2 when crews begin resurfacing the roadway and
replacing the guardrail on the Withlacoochee Bridge.
Law enforcement officers will direct traffic through the
intersection of US 19 and CR 40 while the signals are
replaced. All work will be suspended through the Christmas
and New Year's holidays. Access to all businesses and
residences will be maintained throughout construction.


The project is expected to be complete by Fall 2008,
without having any delays caused by bad weather such as
extremely cold temperatures or rain.
This area of roadway was last resurfaced in 1974.
Between 8,200 to 9,000 vehicles travel on this stretch of US
19 daily.
For additional information regarding this project, contact
the Public Information Office at 800-475-0044 or chip.

A High Tech, Small Town Hospital:

What Chiefland Can Expect
BY DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
Chiefland's Tri-County Hospital, when completed in 2010, will mirror its sister facility
Smith-Northview Hospital in Valdosta, Georgia. Smith-Northview is the hospital visited by
Chiefland officials on Nov. 15 to get a preview of what Tri-County Hospital will be like. Both
facilities are parts ofAmeris Health Systems. Tri-County Hospital will serve Dixie, Levy and
Gilchrist counties, and like its smaller, older sister will offer county residents a convenient
alternative to traveling to Gainesville or Ocala for most general medical services.
Looking at its specifics, Smith-Northview hospital offers its patients the following
services.
24/7 Emergency Treatment
Endoscopy [minimally invasive diagnostic procedures allowing doctors an inside look]
General Surgery
Inpatient Dialysis
Laboratory
Orthopedic Surgery
Outpatient [one-day] Surgery
Pain Management
Stress Testing [non-invasive cardiology testing]
Respiratory Therapy
Radiology: X-ray, MRI, CT, Mammography, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine
Private Labor and Delivery Suites
Lithotripsy [uses sound shock waves to pulverize kidney stones]
Urology Services
Cardiology Services [noninvasive]
Pediatric Surgery
Dental/Oral Surgery
Gynecologic Surgery
The hospital currently has five operating rooms, 31 private inpatient rooms, which
include four intensive care unit/cardiac care unit rooms and three labor-delivery-recovery
rooms. Additionally, it has 24 private outpatient rooms. Except for high-end specialties,
such as heart and brain surgery, Smith-Northview Hospital provides most health care needs.
But hospitals are much more than high-tech machines, comfortable rooms, and modem
facilities. Hospitals are also administrators, doctors, nurses, technicians, maintenance
personnel, cooks, pharmacists, volunteers, patients and patients' families, in a word-
people. People have attitudes.
Chuck Roberts, Smith-Northview's Assistant Administrator, said, "We are a high
tech, small town hospital." That is saying a lot; Valdosta is a modest-sized city. It has a
population estimated at 50,000, and is home to another larger hospital. Nonetheless, Smith-
Northview, a for-profit hospital, competes successfully, perhaps, in part due its small-town
values. Roberts speaks with pride of the competence, work ethic and compassion his staff
delivers, in a word-attitude. He points at one statistic as'an example. In the hospital's
first year of operation, 2002, it served 200 delivering mothers; in its most recent year, 600
babies took their first breath.
Franklin Schupp, CEO of Tri-County Hospital, arranged Chiefland's officials visit to
Smith-Northview Hospital. When interviewed, Schupp said he is committed to creating the
same small-town atmosphere in Tri-County. Although only recently appointed CEO, Mr.
Schupp, for the past four years, has spearheaded the time-consuming efforts to make Tri-
County Hospital a reality. Schupp holds a Master degree in Health Care Administration
from the University of Tennessee-his internship specialized in rural health care
administration-and he has 31 years' experience administrating health care. With Schupp's
knowledge, experience and attitude Chieflandand tri7county residents can expect Tri-
County Hospital to be another high tech, small town hospital.
