Inglis and Yankeetown Oppose

Nearby Mining Proposal
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER


........2 Town leaders of Inglis and Yankeetown are expressing concerns about a proposed mining
........3 operation in Levy County near their towns.
........4 Inglis Mayor Carolyn Risher expressed the most recent opposition to Tarmac America
5 LLC's proposal to mine stone on about 4,800 acres near the two towns.
7- In a Dec. 13 letter, Risher said the town opposed plans to establish a mine in the area.
0 "A group of residents from Inglis and surrounding areas attended the Inglis Commission
......10 meeting to appeal to the town with their concerns and ask for assistance," she wrote. The
..... 11 letter was given to Levy County commissioners at the Tuesday meeting.
......12 Risher continued, "The Town of Inglis is greatly concerned with the effects to the area in
14-16 regard to public health, safety and welfare of residents of Inglis and the surrounding areas in
respect not only to the mining issue but also to the increased traffic flow through the town."
Yankeetown's concerns were expressed earlier this month, when Larry Cohan, chairman
urnal ofthe town's Planning and Zoning Commission, spoke before the county's Planning
Commission about concerns. He identified potential damage to homes and other buildings,
lines noise and impacts on water quality as issues of concern.
Tarmac America's project manager Albert W. Townsend wrote Yankeetown Mayor Dawn
07 Clary a letter Monday explaining the amount of work the company has done trying to
07 4 p.m. minimize the impact offsite. He offered to meet with officials and residents of Yankeetown
07 noon in January and to present the information the company has gathered on the project.
Tarmac America presented its proposal for the mining operation before the Levy County
07 Planning Commission Dec. 3. The commission tabled action on it and requested more
07 4p.m. information about the project. The project could be before the Planning Commission again
as early as March. After that it would go before the Levy County Commission for approval.
Z/25 1/1 Tarmac America, based in Deerfield Beach, has proposed building the Tarmac King
Road Mine on 9,400 areas about a mile west of U.S. 19 and two miles north of state Route
40. The mine would occupy 4,800 acres and the rest of the land would be set aside as
mitigation. The portion set aside is on the western part of the land adjacent to state land.
Tarmac America plans to produce crushed stone to be used for construction of roads,

Williston Fire Rescue responded to a reported structure fire Mon. Dec. 10 two miles north on
CR 241 off Alt Hwy 27. Upon arrival Williston Fire units reported a log cabin style home with
flames and heavy smoke coming from the roof. The on-scene officer requested immediate
assistance for water tankers and engines for Bronson, Morriston and Alachua County Fire
Departments. Due to the homeowner calling 911 quickly and the efforts of all firefighters,
the home should be able to be rebuilt even though the home had heavy damage to the roof.
The fire is under investigation. This is a standard procedure for structure fires.

John T. Henry died young, 51, in the autumn of 2005.
He left behind grieving family, friends and students. He left
Williston High School without a band director. He had filled
that position for nearly 20 years.
On Sat. Dec. 15 John T. Henry's son, Travis Henry, and
two grandchildren, Ashland and Isaac Henry, unveiled the
entrance sign to John T. Henry Celebration Park, officially
dedicating the park. A crowd comprised of city officials,
John's family and friends, former colleagues and students,
and interested residents witnessed the dedication. Fittingly,
the Williston.High School Choir and Williston High School
Marching Band provided entertainment.
John T. Henry Celebration Park was an empty lot in 2005,
bounded by NW First and Second Avenues, and NW Fourth
and Fifth Streets. The Whitehurst family gave the property to
the city several years ago. Spearheaded by City Councilman
Steve Holcomb, a plan for the park gelled. Funding for the
project came from the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection through the Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program. "The park is primarily for children,"

Commissioners Call
for Waste-to-Energy
Demonstration
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Levy County commissioners are looking into ways to stop
wasting waste. On Tuesday, commissioners asked to see a
demonstration of technology that converts waste to fuel.
At the suggestion of Commissioner Danny Stevens,
the commissioners agreed to ask Jeruz Energy to bring a
demonstration unit to Levy County to show how the waste-
to-fuel process works.
Jeruz Energy has a mobile unit on a tractor-trailer that it
uses for demonstrations.
The equipment converts portions of household waste
to biodiesel, which can be used to power equipment and
vehicles that run on conventional diesel, such as county work
vehicles and school buses. Commissioners would like to
involve the Levy County School Board in the demonstration.
Levy County Coordinator Fred Moody said diesel power
vehicles can use biodiesel without modifications, and the
fuel could cost as low as $1 a gallon compared to more than
$3 a gallon for diesel.
Commissioners would like to involve the Levy County
School Board, commissioners from surrounding counties,
and city leaders to see the demonstration. -
After the demonstration, county officials and Jeruz Energy
will discuss the size and location of a possible waste-to-fuel
plant as well as the cost.
Jeruz Energy is a renewable energy company based in Ocala.

Letters

tothe Editor

Dear Editor:
I commend you for your energetic coverage, pre-, past and during the Catlin Mixson
" fund-raiser at the Junction Tavern on Saturday, November 10, 2007.
The Journal staff extended time, energy and emotion to make the people of Levy County
aware of the sacrifice one of our own has extended for his country against the war on
terrorists.
L.E. Clauss
Morriston
Dear Editor,
Dignified or Demented? For the first time ever, U.S. House of Representatives by a
S376-0 vote passed a resolution honoring the Islamic holiday Ramadan and commending
SMuslims for their faith. This comes just six years after devoted adherents of that faith flew
planes into the World Trade Towers, killing 3,000 innocent Americans in the name of Islam.
The problem is any attempt to do so for Christians or. Jews is condemned as breaching the
Nonexistent line between church and state. There has never been a resolution honoring
Christmas or Easter nor in the past 20 years honoring any Jewish holiday. Americans should
Sbe troubled it passed without a single "no" vote. Why? Do the feelings of survivors of the
i 9/11 horror not count?
Bill and Elaine Padilla

Re:,


HOLIDAY SAFETY

TIPS

SHERIFF
JOHNNY SMITH


Ut With the holiday season upon us, most people are preoccupied
with the details of holiday planning and shopping. Unfortunately,
the safety precautions we normally take can be forgotten as the
excitement of the season causes us to let our guard down. The
Levy County Sheriff's Office wants this to be a safe holiday
season for all, so we remind you to follow these safety tips. Enjoy your trip and fellowship with
friends and family.
* Be alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Criminals often target people who are
distracted.
* Plan in advance when driving, walking, or taking public transportation. Know how to get to
your destination by the safest, most direct route.
* Travel on populated, well lit streets. If possible, travel with a friend.
* Remind children to be wary of strangers.
* Before taking the subway, look for the red or green lights outside the entrance. A red light means
that you cannot enter the system at that location. Look for an entrance with a green light before
you go down the stairs.
* If possible, stay in view of the token booth while awaiting your train. Never walk near the edge
of the platform.
* When driving, keep all doors locked and the windows closed. Make sure the gas tank is full.
Maintain your car iri good working order to avoid breakdowns.
* Always lock your car Before getting into your car, check the back seat to make sure no one is
hiding here.
* Plan your purchases in advance and carry only the amount of cash necessary to make the
purchase. If you must carry a large sum of money, divide the cash between your purse, pockets
and wallet.
* Record the numbers for each of the credit cards you own. This will facilitate reporting the theft
or loss of the cards..
* .; Carry your purse close to your body. Place one.end of the purse in the palm of your hand and the
Other in the bend of the elbow. Never carry a purse by the handle or wrap the strap around your
body.
* If you are carrying a wallet, carry it in the breast pocket of your jacket or in your front pants
pocket. The rear pants pocket is one of the easiest to pick.
* When in a restaurant, don't leave your handbag or packages unattended.
* If you must place packages in your car, put them into the trunk and make sure the trunk is
locked. Never leave packages in the passenger compartment unattended.
* Don't wait until you have reached your front door of your residence to look for your keys. Have
them ready in your hand. If a stranger is standing near your residence, it may be a good idea not
to go in until the situation feels safer.
* Lock your front door immediately upon entering your home.
* If you live in an apartment building, don't buzz in someone who rings your bell until you have
verified who he or she is. This will help protect both yourself and your neighbors.
* If you have elderly family members or neighbors, please remember to check in on them.
* Be wary of con artists. Con artists use a number of ploys to scam you and steal your property.
Some divert your'attention while another picks your pocket, some pose as utility workers or
as a trades person to gain access to the inside of your home, while others conduct scams that
are more elaborate involving several con artists. As a consumer you should also be wary of
illegal vendors selling goods on the street. Purchase merchandise only from licensed vendors or
reputable stores. Follow your instincts. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Don't drink and drive and have a safe and happy holiday season!

o Saving for a College

"" :A1. Eb ucation
1 Whether the children are six months or six
S, years old, there seems to be one thing that
,- ~,. *parents have in common these days: where is
i7 r the money for their college education coming
from?
Parents can be faced with daunting annual
expenses for tuition, room and board, books
By MEGN Q N and other expenses. So, it comes as no
By MEGAN QUINN surprise that a number of parents have begun
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
to have serious concerns as to where they
are going to come up with the sums needed when the time approaches for their child to start
packing for a move to the college dorm. Well, I'm happy to report that there's some good news
for a change the 529 Plan!
What is a 529 Plan? It's an investment plan operated by a state and designed to encourage
savings for future college costs. These plans fall under Section 529 of the Internal Revenue
Service Code. Each state decides whether it will offer a 529 Plan (or possibly more than one),
and what it will look like.
There are quite a few advantages of 529 plans:
Unsurpassed income tax breaks. Your investment grows tax-free for as long as your
money stays in the plan. And when a withdrawal is taken to pay for the beneficiary's qualified
college costs, the earnings portion of that withdrawal is tax-free.
The donor stays in control of the account. With few exceptions, the named beneficiary
has no rights to the funds. You are the one who calls the shots; you decide when withdrawals
are taken and for what purpose. Most plans even allow you to reclaim the funds for yourself
anytime you desire, no questions asked. However, non-qualified withdrawals may be subject to
taxation and a 10% federal penalty.
Simplicity. Once you decide which 529 plan to use, you complete a simple enrollment
form and make your contribution (or sign up for automatic deposits). The ongoing investment
of your account is handled by the plan and your advisor, not by you.
A great reason to look into 529 Plans now is the gift and estate tax advantages. Your
contribution is treated as a gift to the named beneficiary for gift tax and generation-skipping
transfer tax purposes, so you need to be aware of this exposure particularly if you-are making
other gifts to the beneficiary during the same year. Your contribution does, however, qualify
for the annual gift tax exclusion. Speak to your tax advisor to see what you can gift without
incurring the gift tax.
What if my child doesn't go to college? If your child doesn't go to college, or you end up
with more in the account than is needed, federal law requires that the 529 Plan charge you a
10% federal penalty on earnings, if a withdrawal is not used to pay qualified higher education
expenses, in addition to taxes on the earnings portion of a non-qualified withdrawal. The
penalty is usually not charged if you terminate the account because the beneficiary has died or
become disabled. If the child receives a scholarship, the dollar amount of the scholarship may
be withdrawn from the account without incurring the 10% penalty, but the earnings will be
taxable to the account owner at the account owner's tax rate. You can change the beneficiary to
certain persons (speak to your investment professional about these rules) in order to keep the.
account active and postpone taking non-qualified withdrawals.
Can I transfer existing college savings accounts? Prior to Section 529 Plans becoming so
attractive, many parents set up tax-advantaged savings accounts for their children under the
Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA) or Uniform Gifts to Minors Act (UGMA). Now
that the 529 Plans offer a number of distinct advantages over their existing UTMA accounts,
some parents may be wondering if they can transfer these accounts into a 529 Plan. Many (but
not all) 529 Plans accept funds coming from an existing UTMA or UGMA account. However,
becagusp~lese funds.1elong to ~he minor, under cacsstodial arrangement, any withdrawals from
tlhe UTMA/529 account must be for the benefit of that minor only.
Parents who are nervous about a child getting their hands on money in an UTMA/UGMA
account, with no restrictions on its use, when they turn 18, or may wish to "regain control"
of the money by transferring the funds to a 529 account, might be disappointed to learn they
can't do that without violating states laws (see your attorney for an interpretation of your state's
laws). Individual program rules and state laws will normally prevent you from making any
beneficiary changes to the UTMA/529 account and the minor will assume direct ownership of
the account when the custodianship terminates at the age of majority.
That said, the placement of UTMA/UGMA funds in a 529 Plan can still provide all the tax
and investment benefits associated with the 529s. Remember, however, that a 529 Plan can only
accept cash so any appreciated securities in the UTMA would have to be sold and capital gains
would be reportable on the minor's tax return.
There's still another concern parents have expressed regarding 529 Plans. The new tax law
"sunsets" on January 1, 2011, which means that a decade from now, withdrawals from these
accounts may go back to being taxed unless Congress extends this break.

Camp Caruth to help children go to camp. We raised $1,020.

County Citizens

The Levy County Health Department cordially invites
you to participate in a strategic planning session to address
health concerns of our citizens. We will meet to establish
health priorities and strategic issues to improve health
in Levy County. In 2005, we evaluated our public health
system using the Center for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) National Public Health Standards Program
assessment tool and identified strengths and weaknesses
of our local system. Florida also conducted a Community
Health Needs Assessment in the fall of 2004. We will
be meeting with community members and our planning
partners on Thurs., Jan. 31 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Bronson
Middle/High School.
This meeting is open to the public. Input from local
citizens is highly encouraged. For more information or to

Williston Rotary Club Votes
to Change Meeting Time
BY KIM MCLANE
STAFF WRITER
The Rotary Club of Williston conducted a poll of its
members last Tuesday morning at a rescheduled General
Assembly meeting. The resulting majority vote was to
change the time of day the Rotary Club meet from 7:30
a.m. to noon.
The members thought this would increase attendance
rates and allow other member-candidates in the community
the opportunity to join the club. Eligible members live
or work in the Williston club's membership area and
are sponsored by existing Rotary members. The club
membership area is in Levy County east of and including
Bronson and south to Morriston/Montbrook to the Marion
County line.
Other business recently conducted: Kim McLane
from the Levy County Journal has been approved for
membership; Todd Etheridge was voted in to take over as
Treasurer effective immediately for his second term; and
David Paul was voted in as the new President-Elect for
2008-2009.
The regular meetings for the rest of the year have been
cancelled due to the holidays. The next regular meeting
will be Jan. 8 at 12 p.m. at the Williston Chamber of
Commerce building.
For the new year, the club will begin planning to conduct
their third Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Sat., Mar. 8, 2008 at
the Johnny T. Henry Celebration Park. Mark your calendars
and be sure to attend.


Bronson Urges Florida's Chiefland Woman's

Farmers And Ranchers Club Announces 2008-

to Participate in Census 2009 Officers


of Agriculture

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
is urging the state's farmers and ranchers to watch their
mail in early January for the arrival of the 2007 Census of
Agriculture form.
Conducted every five years by the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, the Census is a complete count of the
nation's farms and ranches and the people who operate
them. The Census examines land use and ownership,
operator characteristics, production practices, income and
expenditures and other topics. It provides the only source of
uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every county
in the nation..
"Regardless of how large or small their operation or what
kinds of products they produce, it's important for Florida
farmers and ranchers to complete and return the form,"
Bronson said. "By participating in the Census, they will help
themselves and their communities."
USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS)
will mail out Census forms on Dec. 28, 2007, to collect data
for the 2007 calendar year. Completed forms are due by
Feb. 4, 2008. Producers can return their forms by mail or fill
out the Census online via a secure web site.
"The Census of Agriculture provides information that
benefits agricultural producers and their communities in
many ways," Bronson said. "For instance, policy-makers
factor Census data into decisions concerning agricultural
and rural programs. Community planners use Census data
to target needed services to rural residents. Companies rely
on Census data when determining where to locate their
operations. And farmers themselves can use Census data to
help make critical decisions about their businesses."
For more information about the 2007 Census of
Agriculture, contact the NASS Florida Field Office at (407)
648-6013 or 1-800-344-6277 or visit http://www.agcensus.
usda.gov.
Everyone's response to the Census makes a difference.
To assure we are providing the best tools and reports, we
need accurate information from all farmers and ranchers no
matter how large or small their operations. 'This information
is used to make a positive difference in local communities.
Additionally, responses are required and protected by law.
Producers should look for the Census form in their
mailboxes in early January 2008.
Forms must be mailed back or completed online by Feb.
4, 2008.

Festival of Lights and Christmas Boat Parade is a

Tremendous Success


The Historical Fort Fanning Park came alive on Sat., Dec.
8 at the 19th annual Festival of Lights. It was a gorgeous day
with plenty of sunshine and just cool enough to make the.
day a joy to be outside. This beautiful park really contributed
to the festivities as everyone had plenty of room to display
their varied items for sale. With the walkway throughout
the park, people found it so easy to wander through with
strollers and walkers they visited the various displays. The
Moose Lodge had set up early to provide hot coffee and hot
chocolate along with some goodies to help each of us get the
day underway.
At the center of all of this was the stage where the
entertainment was varied as well. Gina and Laura started us
out with some beautiful music followed by Earl Green and
the Mercy Mountain Boys. The Chiefland D & D Dance
Studio brought many of their dancers to perform. What a
wonderful job they did. Everyone was thrilled to watch these
youngsters put on a great show. Bruce, the juggler, displayed
his tricks in the amphitheater to the delight of everyone

as well as other items of choice, some of which he did while
riding his unicycle. He delighted everyone with his feat of
throwing the balls up and catching them in a small net that
was attached to.a long pole he balanced on his.forehead. He
also wandered through the park most of the day entertaining
everyone as he went about showing people how to juggle.
He delighted the children with his balloon art, making
various animals for them.
The Rick Gordon Band was a great hit as they performed
their great songs. The Bluegrass Prophets Quartet gave their
renditions of many hits. The Philman Band performed with

Santa Claus was very busy as many children lined up
to let him know what they were wishing for under the
Christmas tree. Cameras were flashing as parents wanted to
get their children's picture with Santa.
The Classic Car Show was really humming, as many
of the oldies seemed to appear out of nowhere. People
wandered throughout admiring each and every one. This
was the first year for the.Cruising for Grins Car Club, and
they did a magnificent job and are looking forward to an
even bigger and better show next year.
Those cute yellow rubber ducks then put on their show.
More than 1,900 were put into the river, each one trying to
make it to the front of the line. What a scramble they put on
as you watched and held your breath,, and hoped that yours
was the leader of the pack. There were three winners. Will
Smith took first, Martin Gabriel came in second and Carol
Jones placed third. Congratulations to each of you that
picked the lucky winners.
If you missed the Christmas Boat Parade, you missed a
wonderful evening as 12 beautifully decorated boats made
their way up the river. It was a cool,, dark night and the
colored lights reflecting in the water were a sight to behold.
As the boats came into view, many spectators lined the
banks of the Suwannee River on both sides. The boats did
a complete turnaround, played music and shouted "Merry
Christmas." One used fire extinguishers that made the boat
appear to float out of the mist. The boats docked, and those
coming ashore were welcomed with hot coffee, chocolate
and some great snacks. Our judges this year represented
some of our local schools. Lynette Langford, Principal of
Trenton High School, Pam Asbell, Principal of Chiefland
High School and Karen Tillis, Principal of Old Town
Elementary School were our judges. Thanks, ladies, for
participating with us this year.
The winners of the Boat Parade are as follows:
Small boat category: First place, Theresa Jones. Second
place, Driftwood Realty. Third place, William Couey.
Medium boat category: First place, Trooper Charlie and


Susie Caulk. Second place, Heather Jones. Third place,
Toys for Tots. Honorable Mention, Patrick Allen. Honorable
Mention, Jerry Skuse.
Large boat category: First place, Mike Boyer. Second
place, Fanning Springs Volunteer Fire Department. Third
place, Miller Marina/Suwannee Houseboat Rentals,
Suwannee Chamber of Commerce and Suwannee Guide and
Outfitters. Honorable Mention, Chuck and Margie Barto.
Thanks to Becky Sanford and the Suwannee River
Cruisers Boat Club for a great show.
Winners of the many donated gifts by our great local
merchants were Deb Westmark, Theresa Lett, Ken Ventrop,
Lona Golotto, Betsy and Phil, Arlene Lang, Roger Sanford,
Katie Hutchinson, Ron Hawkins, Marshall Durocher, Mary
Frances Jolley, Kris Durocher, Carla Preszio, Pam Johnson,
Tony Murphy, Angie and Herb Clark, Donna Stacey, Cheryl
Nekola, Becky Sanford, Den Doede, Wayne Huffer, Steve
Biedel, Rosemary McCall and Pat Orr. The person that
makes this happen each year is Mary Frances Jolley. She
puts in many hours contacting the various businesses and
soliciting their cooperation. Her effort makes this event one
of the great moments of the day. We really appreciate our
merchants for supporting the festival in this way. It gives
the winner the opportunity to visit your place of business,
perhaps for the first time, and see what you have to offer.
Thanks to each and every one.
With the help of the Gilchrist, Dixie, Levy County
Sheriff's Departments, EMS units, Fish and Game Patrol,
Anderson Columbia, Jones Septic, Suwannee Valley Precast,
Fanning Springs Moose Lodge volunteers, local volunteers
and many hours of hard work from everyone, we were able
to have a tremendous festival for all to enjoy safely. We look
forward to another year of bigger and better things to come.
Thanks to all who helped in any way. We are especially
grateful for the sponsorship we received from the City of
Fanning Springs and Pure Water Wilderness, the Dixie-
Gilchrist-Levy Tourism Development Board. We could not
have given our communities such a wonderful event without
your help.
The Historical Fort Fanning Park became a reality through
the hard work of then-Mayor Carol McQueen and the City
Council. McQueen helped secure funding through a grant
frotr Florida Community Trust. Current Mayor Cheryl
Nekola said that the festival turned out great this year, and
that we have plans for a bigger and better festival next year.
She also stated that improvements are underway for future
development of the park.
The Fanning Springs Chamber of Commerce wishes
everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Prosperous New
Year.

Red Devils Beat PK Yonge 57-54: Stay Tuned


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
For the first time since 2000, the Williston Red Devil
varsity boy's basketball team beat district foe PK Yonge.
And I've got news for PK fans, three of the Red Devil
starters are just sophomores, and their number six man off
the'bench is a freshman.
The young and extremely talented Red Devils put
together a tremendous total team effort to down the always
talented Blue Wave.
Another note of interest, they did it with home grown
players, all from Williston.
PK Yonge, a private school, has been the cream of the
district that they play in, and have dominated the district for
many years. The other small town teams in the district end
up battling for the runner-up spot in the district.
This young Red Devil team displayed the best example of
a true team effort that I have witnessed in quite some time.
The Red Devils held the lead at the end of every quarter,
and besides the outstanding scoring spree that Red Devil
sophomore Deonte Welch displayed in the second quarter
of play, the Red Devils had a balanced scoring attack by all
their players.
In the third quarter as the Blue Wave fought back to
take the lead for a short time, it was two other sophomore's
Kelcey Coleman, and Isaac Floyd that picked up the offense
for the Red Devils. Freshman James Hunt came off the
bench and.held his own along with senior CJ James under
the boards against the much taller Blue Wave.
And senior point guard Devin Timmons did a super job of
ball handling through out the game.
Some of the moves that Welch put on the Blue Wave
players during a second quarter display by a young man that
was not going too lose were just fantastic.
The Blue Wave coaching staff that spent more time out of
the coaching box than they did inside it dropped their jaws
Several times, calling quick timeouts, as I don't think they
could believe what they had seen.
The Red Devils ran the floor with the Blue Wave, but if
the shot was not there, the Red Devils would pull the ball
back out and not try to force anything. They would re-set the
offense and go from there.
It is evident to me that this group of young Red Devils
and their new head coach, work in practice, and come out
prepared to play as a team.
The Red Devil fans, mostly students, rushed out onto
the floor to congratulate their team at the final buzzer.

The Red Devils are now 5-0 for the season and 3-0 in
district play.
The Red Devils were led in scoring by Deonte Welch
with 22 points, Kelcey Coleman had 8 points, while CJ
James, Devin Timmons and Isaac Floyd all had 6 points
each. James Hunt added 5 points off the bench.
The Blue Wave were led in scoring by Walade Wade with
18 points, and Josh Snodgrass with 17 points.
In the junior varsity game, despite a six-point come back in
the final 59 seconds by the Red Devils to send the game into
over time, the Blue Wave junior varsity out scored the JV Red
Devils 13-0 in the overtime period to take a 79-66 win.
Jacques Edwards led the JV Red Devils in. scoring with
22 points.

Lady Red Devils Drop Soccer

Game in Second Half 44

BY KATELYN GUINSLER ,
SPORTS WRITER .410
After jumping out to a 3-0 lead early in the game, the Williston Lady Red Devil soccer
team seemed to fall asleep in the second half as they battled the Newberry Lady Panthers.
It looked as if the Lady Red Devils were on the way to an easy victory.
Red Devil Kayla Carnegie shot a hard kick right past the Newberry goalie for the first
point of the game, and Lucia Bernal then made a goal for the second Lady Red Devil point
off a missed shot by Rachel Brannan that Bernal put right back in the net.
The Lady Red Devils now were coasting with a 2-0 lead.
After a great defensive effort by the Lady Red Devils, Carnegie scored her second goal of
the game to put the Lady Red Devils well in control at 3-0.
What looked like a shutout for the Lady Red Devils quickly turned into a Cinderella story
for the Lady Panthers.
The Lady Panthers quickly scored on a corer kick on a great header.
Following that point, the Lady Panthers dribbled the ball right down the field and scored
again on a shot that whizzed right past the Lady Red Devil goalie.
The score was now 3-2, and the Lady Panthers started the second half right where they
left off in the first half, continuing to press and keep the ball in front of the Lady Red Devils'
goal.
The Lady Panthers continued applying the pressure and scored two goals in the final two
minutes of the game to take the win from the Lady Red Devils, 4-3.

quick moves to the basket, tip-ins and blocked shots. The
Panthers pulled ahead early and never looked back as they
led the entire game.
Eugene Carter led all scorers with 17 points for the
Indians. With a lot of hustle, he did it all: lay-ups, three-
pointers, foul shots, passes to the open man, and bringing the
ball up court. His efforts made the score 46 to 26 at the half.

Williston Falls on Soccer Field


to PK Yonge 6-2

BY KATELYN GUINSLER
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Lady Red Devils played hard, but the Blue Wave's skill and speed were too
much for the young Lady Red Devils, as the Blue Wave won the match 6-2.
PK Yonge had the first kick-off and passed the ball rapidly down the field for the
first shot of the game, but Williston goal keeper Roxanne Krause gained control of
the ball with a great block.
The Blue Wave regained control as they pressured Williston's defense
aggressively, which led them to scoring the first goal 1-0. As Williston restarted the
ball, and the obvious speed and agility of the Blue Wave players was evident. The
Blue Wave scored their second goal, and almost as quickly, scored again for a 3-0
lead.
The Williston goalie Roxanne Krause fought off back-to-back shots by the
aggressive Blue Wave team the entire night.
Williston's Abby Rodriguez was injured on a very intense one-on-one play that
took her out for the rest of the night.
The defense for Williston led by Chelesa Wright, continued to hang tough the
entire game and nade some great defensive stops.
The Blue Wave scored two more goals in the first half that was dominated by the
skills and speed of the Blue Wave players.
The Blue Wave took a 5-0 lead at the half time break.
Williston got the kick off to start the second half and the Lady Red Devils came
out ready to play. Sarah Markham and Chelesa Wright both scored goals for the
Lady Red Devils to make the score PK 5 and the Red Devils 2.
The Lady Blue Wave 'answered the two goals with another goal of their own to
pull ahead 6-2.


Restocking Your Tackle Box for

BY BOYD DUCKETT
If you're like me, I'm sure more than a few people have already asked what you want

opportunity for you to load up your tackle box for the upcoming year arming you with

So before you cash in your gift cards on tacky shirts and talking fish, here's some of the
thitgs'you're sure to need in your boat this year.
A long, cold winter in the closet or the garage can be extremely damaging to fishing

straining of the line as
you wrench those big
bucketmouths into the
boat and sunlight all work
together to weaken the
structural integrity of
the toughest, best-made
fishing lines. Most pros
respool their reels after
every day of competition.
Sure, it can be time
consuming especially
when you're tired but
you don't want to miss
the cut or a paycheck
because a fish broke your
line. This year. Trilene
100",, Fluorocarbon
debuted and it. is the
hottest line on tour. All
the pros including
mn self use it for nearly
every application that
requires getting a bait
down the in the \\ater. It's
stronger, more sensitive
and resistant to abrasions
and has ahnost no stretch.
It's a must for going after
big, finicky fish.
SIf you were really
good this year. maybe
-ou'\e got enough
money on the gift card
to get a new rod or reel.
Abu Garcia released the
REVO Premier this year,
the smoothest, fastest and
toughest REVO ever built.
The RE\O0 Premier is a
heavy duty, low-profile
reel that's perfect for
flipping jigs or retried ing
crank baits and has all the
features you need to land
even the biggest fish. Also,
Berkley's new TEC Tools
came out this year. too.
and they are the toughest
and most comfortable-to-
use tools I'%e eter had in
the boat. From the new
Pistol Trigger Grips for
fish that bite to digital
scales and superline
shears (a must when
using FireLine), you'll be
using TEC Tools for 3 ears
because they'll last that
long.
And finally, if you've
got any money left over,
this is a great time of
year to pick up some
really good deals on
baits. Who knows where
you'll be able to fish this
year or what the fish will
be biting when you get
there. I like to keep some
various sizes and colors
on board. Lately, I've
been stocking up on pails
of Gulp! Alive!. These
new baits, packaged in
Gulp! juice have more
flavor and a better shape
and action and are deadly
on bass.
A trip to the sporting
goods store is a great way
to spend one of the cold
winter days that stand in
the way of you hitting the
water. Take your kids or
grandkids with you, and.
pick them up something,
too, that way you're sure
to have someone to share
the experience with this
year. So don't let those
gift cards go to waste, turn
them into something that
will help you catch the fish
of a lifetime in 2008.

champion and currently

Mackenzie Goode Places First in WES Speech Contest


BY LISA STATHAM POSTERARO
The focus was on the family for half of the speeches
recently given by fourth and fifth graders at Williston
Elementary School, and those three all won! Though it
proved a challenging job, it was a fun experience for judges
Annette Kordgien and Naomi Petteway, who enjoyed
listening to the six contestants Mackenzie Goode, Mallory
Jones, Kaylee'Nicholson, Cammeron Smith, Branden
Spillane and Martha Ann Wilson who were voted as the top
speakers from the earlier grade level competitions. Kordgien,
postmaster at Cedar Key and a past leader of various
organizations, has judged before. Petteway, a retired math
teacher, fills leadership positions in her local church.
In the end, though, Mackenzie's humorous lament of -
"Dealing with a Pregnant Mom" took the cake as she placed
first; followed by Branden Spillane, sharing about his "Instant
Family," and Kaylee Nicholson, singing the praises of her
"Number One Dad."
Mallory Jones's clever title, "To Be a Fly on the Wall,"
piqued the listeners' curiosity. Mallory is a fifth grader in
Tonya Townsend's class. In Jeanne DuBois's fifth grade
class, Cammeron Smith, who snagged first place in the 2006
competition, talked about the internet. And certainly the older
elementary student could understand the "Drama at School"
which Martha Ann Wilson related. Martha Ann is in Tina
Roberts's and Joelene Vining's classes.
"There are lots of reasons that she' [her mother, Jennifer
Jones] bugs me because of her pregnancy," said Mackenzie
with a chuckle. "She treats me as her slave...right when it's
time for me to go to bed, she needs water. She complains
about gaining weight, but after all she is pregnant!" Was


"Mom" Jennifer upset with Mackenzie? "Only that I told
every one about her visits to McDonald's and all the Big
Macs she was eating." Jones helped Mackenzie "tweak"
her speech.
Mackenzie's teacher, Nancy Bowman, added that from
the first presentation in class to the winning presentation
school-wide, her speech was "warm and winning...
skillfully organized as well as entertaining." It was obvious
to Bowman that Mackenzie enjoyed delivering her speech.
"Our class will support, with pride, Mackenzie in the
district contest."
Branden Spillane went from being "the apple of his
parents' eye" to "one of the bunch" as they decided over
the summer to take in two foster children, three year
old Luke and 18-month-old Elana. His "instant family"
changed life as he'd known it, so he thought it would be
a good idea to share what it was like to be a big brother
after being the only child for ten years. "I have to share
my toys," said Branden, a fifth grader in Tracy Kirby's
class. He can be in the middle of doing something, and he
has to "stop and help Luke." What does he help him do?
"Teach him his ABCs, read flash cards to him...numbers
and words." With Elana he works with her on her speech,
introducing new words to her vocabulary. Parents Patrick
and Kim are proud of their older son, and it would be "OK
with me" says Branden if they adopt Luke and Elana.
The former Little Miss Williston, Kaylee Nicholson
said the first thing she thought of when .deciding what
her speech would be about was "My Number One Dad,"
Daniel Emmett Whitehurst III (Emmett), her step-father.
"Even though he didn't have to, he treated me as his
own...he calls me his daughter." Other reasons she thinks


he's tops? "He always provides for me. He always keeps
his word. I can always count on him," said Kaylee. "I wish
everyone was as lucky as I am" to have a dad like Emmett.
Was she nervous? "I had to answer questions when I was in
the Little Miss Williston contest in 2002, and I'm in dance
recitals," said Kaylee. Her mom, Billy Jo, and her "Aunt
Jana" [Carlisle] helped her some by listening and keeping
her within the time constraints. Kaylee is also in Roberts's
and Vining's classes.
For the past few years, Carol Glass, WES curriculum
coordinator, has organized the school-wide contest. The
GFWC Williston Woman's Club again provided monetary
prizes for the top six winners. Tropicana and 4-H, both
long-time supporters of this worthwhile event, sponsor the
county-level event which occurred on Dec. 6 in Bronson.

Mortgage Protection Plan: Homeowners' Best Friend


Since a home is likely the largest asset most people ever own,
it makes sense to protect that asset just in case circumstances
make it harder to meet mortgage payments.
If job loss, illness or injury disrupts household finances, the
monetary burden can unexpectedly shift to one spouse or partner
so that family income is inadequate for meeting household
expenses.
The answer may rest with an increasingly popular protection
plan that kicks in to cancel up to 12 months of mortgage
payments for customers of some banks. The one-year reprieve is
often enough time to give customers time to recover from their
situation or get back on their financial feet. The name for this
protection: Borrowers Protection Plan.
According to experts, interest in this protection spikes during
times of economic uncertainty.
Keyanta Dargan at Bank of America estimates that roughly
15 percent of her company's mortgage customers opt for the
protection when they get their mortgage, but that total is on the

"They keep it in their hip pocket if the unforeseen arises," says
Dargan. "Hopefully it won't, but we're here if they need us."
Not Mortgage Insurance
Borrowers protection is not mortgage insurance. Private
mortgage insurance (PMI) protects the lender and does not step
in to make missed payments.
This borrowers protection cancels the amount of the mortgage,
including both principal and interest, but does not pay for
property taxes, homeowners insurance or HOA dues. The
protection works for most types of income interruption, including
involuntary unemployment, disability or hospitalization.
Many mortgage holders pay nothing for the first year of this
protection as a benefit to get their home loan. After the first
year, the average payments are roughly $45 to $50 per month,
depending on the amount of the monthly principal and interest
payments.
Still, customers consider the protection a good deal. Many
homeowners who own it
appreciate the peace of mind
3 2it brings if they have an
interruption of income, and
the protection gives them time
to regroup and get back on
their financial feet.

Levy County DTF and Chiefland Police Arrest

Two on Drug Charges Near High School


A Cross City man and female companion were arrested
on drug charges in Chiefland last week. The Levy County
Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force and Chiefland Police
Department arrested Heather Lynn Kelly and Frank
Frietas Higginbotham for trafficking in MDMA (Ecstasy),
possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute
within 1,000 feet of a school and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
On Dec. 13, the Drug Task Force received information
from two different sources that the above defendants were
at the Best Western Motel in room number 108 with a large
quantity of drugs. Agents set up surveillance and monitored
activity at the motel. When the drug agents went to the
.room to do a knock-and-talk investigation, the defendants
opened the motel door and then immediately ran to the


bathroom in attempt to flush the drugs down the toilet.
The Drug Task Force secured a search warrant and found a
trafficking amount of Ecstasy (MDMA) pills, seven grams
of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and $5,000 in U.S.
currency. The Best Western Motel is within 1000 feet of
Chiefland High School.

Carbon Monoxide -

The winter months are on the way. As the mercury
begins to dip, some families, struggling to pay their
heating bills, will turn on the kitchen stove burners and
the oven in an effort to take the chill off of their home.
What these families don't realize is how dangerous this
practice can be. A gas oven or range top should never
be used for heating. A fire could start and poisonous
carbon monoxide (CO) fumes could fill the home. Any
P fuel-burning heating equipment (fireplaces, furnaces,
water heaters, space or portable heaters), generators and
chimneys can produce carbon monoxide.
According to the National Fire Protection Association
'(NFPA) there is an increased risk of dying in a horie
fire during the winter season. December, January and
February are generally the deadliest months for fire.
Also, hundreds of people die each year from
unintentional CO poisoning. Fire departments responded
q to an estimated 61,000 CO incidents in 2005, a 9 percent
increase from 2004. (This excludes incidents where a fire
was present.) Close to 90 percent of CO incidents occur
Sin the home.
Often called a silent killer, CO is an invisible, odorless,
colorless gas created when fuels, such as gasoline,
wood,' coal, natural gas, propane, oil and methane, burn
incompletely.
CO enters the body through breathing. CO poisoning
can be confused with flu symptoms, food poisoning and
other illnesses. Some symptoms include shortness of
breath, nausea, dizziness, light headedness or headaches.
Everyone is at risk for CO poisoning, but infants,

By LISA STATHAM POSTERARO
With eyes tightly closed, Samantha Slaughter, the recently
crowned Little Miss Williston, reached in three different times
to pull a ticket to see who would win the three prizes made by
members of the Williston Art League. The league held one of
its fund raisers for the Art Agazarm/Williston Art League Art
Scholarship. The prizes had been on display at Perkins State Bank.
Winning the first prize-a Christmas tree decorated with hand-
painted ornaments-was Jack Darling, husband of Helen, the
league president. Samantha drew Kaye McGlothin's name out
of the box for the second prize, a hand-painted tri-fold fireplace
screen created by local artist, Jackie Hernandez. The Darlings'
daughter, Heather Barley, won the tree hall hanging.
"We were thrilled that we cleared around $400 for the
scholarship. A big thank you goes out to the coordinators,
Carolyn Agazarm (Art's widow) and Betty Whitehurst," said
Helen. "And, of course, Jackie [Hernandez] always comes
through for us... always willing to paint something for us."
The league also presented another fireplace screen to PSB
employee, Alma Brinkman, to express the members' gratitude
for her years of volunteering to be the contact person for ticket
sales. "I was so surprised. It was so nice." Brinkman, a 10-year
employee, said she'd been doing this for the league "ever since
they've had these fund raisers."
President Darling thanked the community as well as league
members who bought tickets, thus contributing to the success of
the project.


The Silent Killer
pregnant women and people with physical conditions
that limit their ability to use oxygen, such as emphysema,
asthma or heart disease, can be more severely affected by
low concentrations of CO than healthy adults. High levels
of CO can be fatal for anyone, causing death within
minutes.
The goal of the Williston Fire Department is to reduce
the number of carbon monoxide incidents and discourage
anyone from using the range or oven to heat their
home. Install CO alarms inside your home to provide
early warning of accumulating CO. Have your heating
equipment inspected by a professional every year before
cold weather sets in.
CO alarms are not substitutes for smoke alarms.
Know the difference between the sound of smoke alarms
and CO alarms.
Test CO alarms at least once a month.
If your CO alarm sounds, immediately move to a
fresh air location and call for help. Remain at the fresh air
location until emergency personnel say it is okay.
If the audible trouble signal sounds, check for low
batteries or other trouble indicators.
The Williston Fire Department wants everyone to be
warm and safe this winter. Make sure your home has
carbon monoxide alarms.

Bronson High

Students Sing at

Elementary School

BY STACEY CREWS
FOR THE JOURNAL

When they walked into the auditorium for a
holiday concert on Friday, the students at Bronson
Elementary School were surprised to see high
school students. Ms. Noble's first period Spanish
class was standing on the stage, ready and waiting,
to get the signal to start singing.
They sang "Cascabel." which is "Jingle Bells"
in Spanish, and "Feliz Nav idad."
Each year, school resource officer Donna Roe
sponsors a Christmas carol contest.
For the second straight year, the Spanish I
class at Bronson fHigh School walked over to
the Bronson Elementary School to open the
competition with rto musical numbers. The
elementary students got to see their older siblings
perform. and the high school students got to show
their class and enthusiasm.
A few of the high school band members dressed
in Santa hats and reindeer antlers.
The high school students were more than happy
to sing for their little brothers, sisters and cousins.
The elementary students were so pleased to see
them and loved the singing.

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


Williston Park
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE
Councilman Holcomb said. Nonetheless, in addition to myriad
playground equipment the park also has a handball court and
a shuffleboard court for young adults and older resident's
enjoyment. The park also contains a set of swings, chosen by
Councilman Holcomb, designed for physically handicapped
youngsters. Each of the four swings accommodates different
needs with varying seat configurations: an upright chair
with safety harness, a reclining hammock seat, a vertical
swing seat, and a swing platform. The swing platform can
safely hold an occupied wheel chair. Mr. Holcomb asked the
Williston Junior Women's Club to select the rest of the park's
playground equipment.
During the ceremony, Mayor Hethcoat thanked
Councilman Holcomb, whose efforts ranged from leading the
project to assembling the playground equipment. "The park
wouldn't have happened without Steve Holcomb," the mayor
said. He also thanked the City Council members for their
continuous support, city staff employee, and the many city
employees and local construction businesses who created the
park.
Council President Debra Jones reminisced. She and
John T. Henry had been schoolmates, and later, when her
children attended Williston High School, she served as Flag


Coordinator for the marching band. She, as well as Mayor
Hethcoat, Councilman Holcomb, son Travis Henry and
friends from the audience related memories of John T. Henry,
especially humorous incidents involving the band on buses
traveling to its many appearances or band competitions.
Their music program, thrown into disarray by Mr. Henry's
premature death, Williston High School went searching for
a new music teacher and band director. Alvin Johnson, Jr.,
a 1999 graduate from Williston High School applied, and
joined the school's staff for the 2006 to 2007 school years.
When enrolled, Alvin was one of John T. Henry's students.
He played the tuba in the marching band. "When I left, Mr.
Henry was my friend." He related how Henry had mentored
him, steered him toward college, and a Musical Education
degree. Johnson earned his BS in Music Education at Florida
A & M. Prior to returning to Williston High School, Johnson
taught and directed the band for three years at Eastside High
School in Gainesville. The Williston High School Marching
Band and Choir's performances gave evidence that Johnson is
competent and comfortable filling his mentor's shoes.
In his.closing remarks, Councilman Holcomb, a long-time
friend and past-president of the Band Boosters told how the
park got its name. "Just before he died he said, "No boo-
hoo, no boo-hoo; celebrate my life." The men, women, and
children using the park do that every day."

Mining Proposal
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

bridges, buildings and other structures, according to the
project description filed with Levy County.
The company estimates that the mine has access to about
600 million tons of limerock, with mine depths ranging
from 100 to 125 feet. The company plans to blast the rock
with an ammonium-nitrate-based compound and stockpile
the blasted material on banks of man-made lakes where it
will drain.
A primary plant performs basic crushing and washing
and a secondary, or finishing plant, processes the crushed
rock into standard sizes that are used for construction.
The company is considering preserving the mitigation
section by granting a conservation easement or deeding
parts of it to the state.


Winter Heating Safety


We all know that the winter cold can be dangerous. But
turning up the heat to combat the chill can also be a fire risk
if heating equipment is not properly used.
Heating equipment is the second-leading cause of home
fires in the United States, according to the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA). The latest NFPA research
shows that heating equipment was involved in an estimated
62,000 reported home fires in 2005. These fires resulted in
roughly 700 deaths and roughly 1,500 injuries and nearly
half the fires occurred during the winter months. The
majority of home heating fires involve chimneys. Most
home heating fire deaths involve space heaters.
Williston Fire Department is urging all residents to help
reduce the number of home heating fires in our community.
Here are just a few simple ways you can decrease the risk of
a heating fire in your home:
Keep or maintain a three-foot (one-meter) space
between all heating equipment and anything that can
burn.
Do not use your oven to heat your home.


Inspect and maintain heating equipment regularly for
safety.
Portable space heaters should be turned off every
time you leave the room and before going to bed.
Have your chimney inspected each year and cleaned
if needed.
Williston Fire Rescue Wish You A Safe And Happy
Holiday Season.
