Otter Creek's New

1 Town Council Faces

Immediate Challenges
BY DAVE GRIFFITHS
STAFF WRITER
Otter Creek's retiring Town Council finished its term
discussing and summarizing unfinished council business,
primarily briefing newly elected council members.
Immediately following, Otter Creek's Attorney, Brent Baris,
administered the oath of office to its three new council
members: Cleah Martin, Rosemary Severino and Don
Severino. Immediately after being sworn, the new council
members took their seats, replacing Councilmen Russell
Meeks, Jr., and Frank Watson who did rot seek reelection,
and Councilman (and Mayor) Bill Burris, defeated in his
bid for reelection. Council members Marie Murray and Lois
Nygard, whose terms-of-office have not expired, remain. As
their first act of business, the council unanimously elected
Rosemary Severino Otter Creek's Mayor. The Council
also approved overview responsibilities, shared among
themselves, for routine town service and management
functions.
Two issues pose immediate challenges for the new
council:
During the Nov. 11 regular Town Council meeting Mayor
Burris reported the town's financial records were in sorry
state. The council approved conducting an immediate audit.
On Nov. 29, Levy County Sheriff Department deputies
seized Otter Creek town records responding to a concerned
resident's allegations of wrongdoing. On Dec. 10 an auditor,
hired by Otter Creek's Town Council conducted a forensic
audit. His report stated there is no evidence of wrongdoing,
but substantiated the town's financial records are in disarray.

Computerized

Confusion


The phone rings, you pick it up, and the caller identifies
himself as an officer of the court. He/She says you failed
to report for jury duty, and that a warrant is out for your
arrest. You say you never received a notice. To clear it up,
the caller says he'll need some information for verification purposes: your birth date, social
security number, maybe even a credit card number.
This is when you should hang'up the phone. It's a scam.
Jury scams have been around for years, but have seen resurgence in recent months.
Communities in more than a dozen states have issued public warnings about cold calls from
people claiming to be court officials seeking personal information. As a rule, court officers
never ask for confidential information over the phone; they generally correspond with
prospective jurors via mail.
The scam's bold simplicity may be what makes it so effective. Facing the unexpected
threat of arrest, victims are caught off guard anti may be quick to part with some information
to defuse the situation.
The victims say "Oh, my gosh. I'm not a criminal. What's going on?" That's when the
scammer dangles a solution, a fine payable by credit card that will clear up the problem.
With enough information, scammers can assume your identity and empty your bank
accounts.
It seems like a very simple scam. The trick is putting people on the defensive, and then
reeling them back in with the promise of a clean slate. It's kind of ingenious with some
social engineering.
In recent months, communities in Florida, New York, Minnesota, Illinois, Colorado,
Oregon, California, Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona and New Hampshire reported scams or
posted warnings or press releases on their local websites. If you ever receive a phone call, I
would you encourage you to report this jury scam to my office.
The jury scam is a simple variation of the identity-theft ploys that have proliferated in
recent years as personal information and good credit have become thieves' preferred prey,
particularly on the Internet. Scammers might tap your information to make a purchase on
your credit card, but could just as easily sell your information to the highest bidder on the
Internet's black market.
Protecting yourself is the key: Never give out personal
information when you receive an unsolicited phone call.

SHERIFF'S


S fe ... Caring


BY THOMAS SOWELL
TRIBUNE MEDIA SERVICES
When I bought one of these small, cheap, old-
fashioned cathode-ray TV sets on sale to watch while on
S, my exercise machine, I had no idea how high-tech and
computerized even these obsolete sets had become.
Nor was this a blessing. I could not even turn the set on and get a channel without
reading a 60-page instruction book. If the truth be known, I could not do it even after
trying to make some sense out of thd instructions.
The next time my computer guru came over to help me with my computer
problems, I asked him to set up the TV set so that I could turn it on.
After he went through the instruction book and waded through all the high-tech
options none of which interested me in the slightest he set up the TV so that I
could do something as elementary as turn on the set and choose a channel to watch.
Unfortunately, this was not an unusual experience. All kinds of computerized
products cameras, cell phones, even car radios have had the same problem.
There must be some blind spot that computer engineers have which prevents them
from seeing that (1) most people are not computer engineers, (2) there is no point
making simple things complicated, and (3) not everyone is looking for a zillion
features to have to wade through to do simple things.
Let's start at square one. What is the first thing you want to do with any
computerized product? Turn it on.
Why should that be a problem when people were turning things off and on for
generations before there were personal computers? Yet computer engineers seem
determined to avoid the very words "off' and "on."
Apparently they feel a need to coin new terms for everything, no matter how
simple or well-known those things may be. For computers, the word is "start," which
you have to go to for either turning the computer off or on.
With our microwave oven, the word is "power." For my car radio and cell phone,
there is no word at all.
For other things, there is the same coining of new words for things people already
understand by old words. Printers can be set for "landscape" or "portrait," as if
people had never heard of horizontal and vertical.
When I had to have a new radio put into my old car, I told the man who installed
it, "I didn't go to M.I.T" and wanted the simplest radio to use that he had.
Yet even the simplest radio he had in stock came with over 100 pages of
instructions and nothing on the radio that said "on" or "off." In fact, none of the
buttons on the front of the radio had anything to indicate what they were for.
The man who installed the radio turned it on for me. But this was an old car that I
did not use very often, and I did not always want the radio on when I was driving.
Since he had not told me how to turn it off, I just turned the volume down as low
as possible, rather than go into the 100 pages of instructions.
I 5Woild"probably nieVer have learned how to turn .that iadio off and on if the iat's
battery had not gone dead one day. While I was waiting on the roof of a parking
garage for the Triple-A truck to get there, I had nothing to read except the radio
instruction book.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, so I read the instruction book. You
might think that telling you how to turn the radio off and on would be on page 1. But
you would be wrong.
That would be too obvious, and computer engineers avoid the obvious like the
plague.
Eventually, I came to the place where the instruction book said to turn the radio on
by pressing the "source" button.
There was of course nothing on the radio itself that said "source." By leafing
through the instructions, however, I eventually found a diagram where one of the
buttons was identified as the "source" button. Eureka!
My new cell phone also has nothing to give you a clue as to how to turn it off or
on, much less do anything so complicated as phone somebody. The next time the car
battery goes dead, I will read the thick instruction book, so that I can call Triple A.

Make a JoyfufNoise Unto the Lord


I would like to share with the reader a few of my thoughts on
the first verse of Psalm 100. As I prayerfully begin this task, my
chief concern and desire is that my efforts would give glory and
honor to God. We can have confidence that the truth of the gospel
that glorifies and honors our Lord will certainly bless and edify
the Lord's people. Psalm 100 teaches us about our sovereign
God, who has made us his people for His own glory and praise. It
clearly declares who we are and who He is. Our highest duty and
joy is to praise our God, bless His name, and be thankful unto
Him. The Lord's people are His creation and this psalm calls us to
worship ouwrcregator. .. .
"Make a joyfulrhnise unto the Lord, all ye lands" (Psalm 100:1).
God's children are commanded in this verse to be actively and
joyfully raising tir Lord. The elect family of God is identified
by the words, "all ye lands." The Lord has an elect family, chosen
in Christ before the foundation of the world, an innumerable
company of saints, redeemed by the blood of Christ our Saviour,
"out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation"
(Revelation 5:9). God's elect are a people called effectually by
the Lord out of all the lands of this world. "But ye are a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people;
that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you
out of darkness into his marvelous light:" (I Peter 2:9). Here again,
we see that our purpose as the children of God is to show forth


His praise by making a joyful noise unto the Lord.
I believe that we, the children of God, are to make that joyful
noise at all times in our lives. In most of my prior efforts to talk
about this scripture, my focus has been on the singing of psalms
and hymns and spiritual songs. This verse certainly teaches
that we should sing praises unto our Lord, but I believe it also
declares that we should be actively involved in praising God
in all that we say and do. As we gather in the Lord's church to
worship Him, what a blessing it is for us to make a joyful noise
in singing, praying, and preaching. "Blessed is the people, that
know the joyful sound:" (Psalm 89:15). This joyful noise or sound
is the message of salvahtioin tygrace h'Iough ttih fi'nshlr''t K' .
of our Lord Jesus Chirit. It declares His life,;deaih, burial, and ,.
resurrection, and all that was acconiplished'for His children in
Christ's perfect work that saved His people from their siits. "As
cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country"
(Proverbs 25:25). The joyful noise made by God's family in
declaring the gospel is like cold waters to a thirsty soul. Nothing
is more satisfying to one who is truly thirsty than to have a tall
glass of cold water. Nothing is more satisfying to a little child of
grace that is hungering and thirsting after righteousness than to
hear the gospel, the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.
"And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of
the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him"


(Colossians 3:17). As we walk in this world, this joyful noise
should accompany our lives. We make this joyful noise with our
feet when we live our lives walking in the Spirit, in obedience to
our Saviour and the teachings of God's word. God's people are to
put on the whole armour of God and have their feet shod with the
preparation of the gospel of peace. Our walk should shout praises
to our God, for He is worthy to be praised. The apostle Paul
instructs the saints at Philippi, "Only let your.conversation be as it
becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or
else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one
spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;"
(PhiIlppians' :2"I T heri ord con\ er.sti'on in this verse is speaking
of one's conduct or lifestyle. Paul, by inspiration of God, is
admoArishing'alf bf God's children to make a joyful noise of praise
and thanksgiving unto the Lord by living our lives according to the
gospel of Christ.
May God bless each of us to talk, walk, and live in this world in
a way that brings honor, praise, and glory to Him. "That ye may
be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the
midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as
lights in the world; (Philippians 2:15). May we always be found
making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

The newspaper ad read 'Beautiful upright antique piano
$100.' I'd been hankering to join that upper echelon who
boasts a piano in their cramped living room, so I called the
number. Some sleepy sounding fellow answered, which was
odd, it being late afternoon and all. After I asked ifI could
come over and kick around under the hood there was a heavy
sigh, then what I surmised to be a yawn. Finally he managed,
"Ohhhkay."
"Doesn't sound in tune," I said plunking down on the faded
yellow keys. The sleepy seller's expression never changed. He
just scratched himself, wiped his nose on his pajama sleeve,
and shrugged.
I thought to myself, "This fellow ain't too bright." So I
offered him seventy five bucks. Sleepy looked even more
confused, if that was possible, maybe even a little dopey. "I'll
have to ask my mom when she gets home," he muttered, "She


u&ta tipigk Before cid (Part 1 o2)


said she was hoping to get sixty out of it."
Suddenly the piano looked a lot nicer to me. I slapped three
twenties on him and asked if he'd help me load it up. You
should've seen Sleepy's jaw drop at the mention of work. He
began mumbling something about what time his momma got
home. I just shook my head and walked out to back my truck
up to the door.
I grunted and heaved and pulled most every muscle in my
body scooting that four hundred pound chunk of junk out the
door. It was enough to cause a fellow to have second thoughts
about his purchase. Especially when I noticed how easily its
finish peeled off on the door jam.
Once outside we took a break. Of course I say 'we' lightly.
I was sweating like a New Orleans cab driver. Sleepy hadn't
even bothered to set down his coffee cup. Mostly he'd just
stood there sighing repeatedly. In fact, I had to threaten him
a little to finally get him to help me lift one end up onto the
tailgate. As I was giving one last herniated push to slide it
aboard I heard a metallic thud behind me. It was a deadbolt
slapping into place. Seems Sleepy secretly slipped silently
inside. (Say that three times real fast!)
Since I hadn't thought to bring any tie downs, I purposed to
drive it down the steep yard at a snail's pace. Everything was

going fine until my front wheels edged off the curb. Then the
whole truck tilted violently and there was a huge 'BLAM'! My
new 'upright' was now officially a 'down-wrong'.
I rushed out to survey the damage. It was substantial. The
foot pedals had fallen off. Splintered wood lay all over the
truck bed. I climbed in and tried to wrestle it back upright, but
I hadn't the strength. Up at the house I noticed the curtains
suspiciously wiggling shut.
It was then I experienced one of those rare moments of
clarity, "I should just dump this thing off right here on the
curb and cut my losses." I gave it serious thought, but sadly,
dismissed the idea and drove it on home. I guess mere fleeting
moments of sanity were never enough to penetrate my thick
skull back in those days.
The story doesn't stop there, but I reckon I will for now.
Before I go I'd like to ask you one question. Is your life
making music? Or does everything just seem to be out of tune
in your heart? Maybe you've got it all 'down-wrong'? You've
got to be careful you know, sleepy Satan's craftier than he
looks. He'd love nothing better than to pawn off a heavy load
on you with no intention of helping you carry it.
Listen, the best deal is getting 'upright' with God. The
only way to do that is to give your life to Jesus. Some trust in
chariots, and some in horses:

toys, it does not work for our members or our collection. We turn
the toys that we collect over to Arlene Cameron of the Gilchrist

families that are in need.
The John Hance O'Steen Camp 770 is a non-profit organization.

Our camp meets every third Tuesday night of each month at the

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


Hitchcock Classic Not As Exciting As Previous Years


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR

The 2007 Hitchcock Classic Tournament this year at Santa
Fe High School was just not as exciting as it was in years past.
For some reason, there were only two officials calling each
game instead of the usual three officials. I guess this is a cost-
cutting measure.
I would be interested to see if there was not some kind
of record set for no fouls being called in the three games
I watched on Thursday evening. The players had to be
hammered to the floor before the officials would call a foul.
They seemed to want the clock to keep running to shorten
their time on the court. Many fans in the bleachers commented
that the officials were certainly letting the players play. Most
also felt they were too many no-calls.
Usually the officials take the game out of the hands of a
team by being too quick to call cheap fouls. But the officials
on this night certainly let the players play to the extreme.
The officials are supposed to go to a spot on the court
during called time-outs. In the last game on Thursday night
between the host Santa Fe Raiders and the Williston Red
Devils, the officials were conferring with one another during
several of the time-outs. As the game came down to the final
five seconds of play, again another obvious foul was not called
by the officials.
My suggestion is that if a Classic cannot be done right,
don't do it at all. The same rules and the same number of
officials should apply as last year. And the host team should
not be allowed to go onto the court during halftime of another


game and warm up prematurely.
In the first round, it was West Orange 68, Leesburg 54.
Then Newberry 76, Hawthorne 69. University High played a
great offensive game as they shut down Palatka in the second
half to win 68-35.
In the final game of first round action, Classic host Santa Fe
Raiders came from 7 points down to tie their game sending it
to overtime. It was the Santa Fe Raiders 52 and Williston 47.
The Red Devils were down 17-11 early in the first half and
came back to take a 25-20 lead into half time.
The Red Devils built from a 35-31 lead at the end of the
third quarter to go up by 7 points at 40-33 with just over 2
minutes remaining.
The Raiders came back on a three-point shot, a lay-up and
2 free throws from fouls that were now being called. The
Raiders then had to commit 5 grabbing fouls between the 55-
second and 22-second mark remaining in the fourth quarter to
send the Red Devils to the foul line on the 1-1 in order for the
Raiders to hope to get the ball back.
The Red Devils had 6 personal fouls, and the Raiders only
had one for the entire second half with 59.1 seconds left to
play,
With the game tied at 42-42, the Red Devils had the ball
with 12.7 seconds remaining in regulation time.
The ball went to CJ James, who went for a side shot with
hands from the defenders pulling on his arms and a hard body
check. The ball fell off the basket and was rebounded by the
Red Devils and put back in the basket just barely after the
buzzer. No foul was called, and the game went into overtime.
The Raiders started the overtime with a 3-point basket


and the Red Devils had to play catch-up from there. Several
turnovers by the Red Devils did not help their cause.
The Raiders hung on to win in overtime 52-47.
The Williston Red Devils are a group of young players,
starting three sophomores that will surely learn from this
experience.

Red Devils Make Comeback at
Hitchcock Classic

In the second round of play at the Hitchcock Classic, the
Williston Red Devils put on a show and played a very good
game.
The Red Devils were matched against Leesburg High
School and quickly showed why they were the best team at
the Classic.
In the second quarter sophomore Isaac Floyd banged in
three 3-point baskets as the Red Devils moved to a 32-13
lead at-the end of the first half of play.
The Red Devils came out and continued to perform Red
Devil basketball as they jumped to a 43-22 lead at the end of
the third quarter.
Devin Timmons, Deonte Welch, Kelcey Coleman and
CJ James all scored for the Red Devils in the third quarter
showing the team's balanced attack.
The Red Devils slowed the tempo of the game in the
fourth and final quarter as they took the win 54-32.
The Red Devils stayed alive and will play Hawthorne on
Saturday.

Red Devils

Down
Hawthorne
With Ease 58-26
BY ANGEL FLOYD
FOR HE J.IIFl I ,.-L '

The Williston Red Devils
continued to show why most
fans thought the Red Devils
were the best team at the
Hitchcock Classic.
After their loss to the
host team Santa Fe Raiders
in overtime, the Red Devils
made quick work to down
Leesburg and again in the
final day of the Classic,
the Red Devils ran past
Hawthorne 58-26.
After a slow start, the Red
Devils pulled away from
the Hornets and pulled their
starters for nearly the entire
fourth quarter.
Down 8-6 at the end of
the first quarter, the Red
Devils picked up their game
and pulled ahead of the
Hornets 22-13 at the half.
Again it was total
balanced scoring by the Red
Devils as they increased
their lead over the Hornets in
the third quarter to 39-22.
Several junior varsity
players that were brought up
to join the varsity, Jacques
Edwards, Tony James, and
Eddie Thomas, saw action in
the fourth quarter. All three
players scored points for the
Red Devils.
The varsity starters
Deonte Welch, CJ James,
Devin Timmons, Kelcey
Coleman and Isaac Floyd all
played a very good game.
Floyd led all scorers with 18
points.
The Red Devils go back
into action at thq Papa John's
Holiday Classic at Trinity
Catholic High School on
Dec. 27, 28 and 29.
These are sure to be some
very good teams invited to
this Classic.

Student Athletes ofthe Week


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
This week the Student Athlete of the Week takes on a new format. Instead of a male
and female student athlete of the week, I discovered a real treasure in what student athlete
recognition is all about.
This week we have five Honor Student Athletes of the Week that all play together as
members of the Bronson Lady Eagles varsity basketball team.
These five young ladies are all enrolled in honors classes and several are enrolled in dual
enrollment classes. Several are enrolled in Advancement Placement classes.
Maybe that has a lot to do with the big turnaround in the lady basketball team this season.
The team last year was 0-18 and did not record a single win the entire season.
This season however the young Lady Eagles are 10-3 at this time and expect to improve
on this record the rest of the season.
Sarah Parkin is a dual enrollment student and also the color guard captain in the Eagles
Marching Band.
Christine Schroeder also plays on the varsity volleyball team and is a varsity cheerleader
for the Eagles.
Kamize Johnson plays on the varsity volleyball team and is also a member of the track
team.
Rasheedah Johnson is a member of the track team as well.
Samantha Cabrera expects to join the cheerleading squad and the track team her senior
year.
These five young ladies really put the emphasis on the title word "student" in our student
athletes of the week.
All of these young ladies plan to continue the education after graduation from high school
either at home or abroad in an international college program.
Greg Hamilton head coach for the Lady Eagles basketball team has not been surprised

Lady Tigers Down Lady Indians 54-30
BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Lady Tigers from Dunnellon High School took on the Chielfand Lady Indians in
their home gym in varsity basketball. From the very start, the Lady Tigers jumped out
into the lead and won 54 30.
When the game starts out 14 2 after the first quarter
something is not working. The Dunnellon team was
refining the attack while the Lady Indians seemed out
of sync. The Lady Indians made too many bad passes
creating turnovers.
The Lady Tigers started the game with full court
pressure. They got aggressive on defense and made many
interceptions. Often, they would not allow the Lady
Indians to penetrate beyond the perimeter. They bid for
possession of the ball at every opportunity and would not
allow the Lady Indians to get into a rhythm.

and direction kept the team attentive. She expected a standard of play for her Lady
Tigers by allowing a certain amount of points per quarter. Her team was easily able
to tell whether or not she was pleased. She was able to maintain a stream of direction
for the entire game. She identified faults in the system immediately then called for
correction.
The Lady Tigers never trailed. They were in total control of the game from the start.
Once they led they forced the Lady Indians to make the same mistakes over and over.

Bronson Varsity Boys Escape Tiger Attack Cedar Key Boys

By DAVID LEACH Outscore Meadowbrook
FOR THE JOURNAL


The Bronson boys' varsity basketball team hosted the
Trenton Tigers in a thrilling game. With both teams playing
their hearts out, the outcome was in doubt until the final
minutes, when the Eagles put on the afterburners to win 60-51.
The fireworks started with Cam Cross leading the attack
for the Trenton Tigers. He scored often as he led the ball-
handling chores for the Tigers. Ajump shot at the end of
,the first quarter kept the Tigers close at 13 19. Turns out,
Cross was sick before the game. Despite his illness, he
played to exhaustion, leading the Tigers the entire game.
Eagle James Rivers dropped in a 3-pointer for his very
first shot as the Bronson Eagles served notice this was going
to be a good game. Dion Thomas and Terrance Dukes also
scored early and the game was on.
Before the half, the Trenton Tigers put on a spurt due to
the hustle of C.J.Bowers, who stole the ball and went coast
to coast for the score. Durell Henry teamed up with Cam
Cross to make another steal and Cross scored to bring the
Tigers close, 26 27.
The second half started with the game up for grabs. Durell
Henry evened out the score at 30 30. For a while in the third
quarter, the lead changed with every possession. William
Harris showed how much the Eagles wanted to win with
a fall-away jumper followed by another steal. He made
the next foul shot, then James Rivers got altitude for a key
rebound.
Dion Thomas scored under the basket after grabbing
a rebound and gave the Eagles the slimmest amount of
breathing room. The Tigers needed to foul to get the ball
back but C.J. King was up to the task. He sank both foul
shots and sank the Tigers' hope' of winning at the same time.
The Eagles' William Harris saved his best playing for
last, scoring 11 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter. James

Cam Cross brings the ball up court while Dion Thomas

Rivers scored 12 points and provided critical rebounding
with spectacular vertical leaps for the Eagles.
Cam Cross, despite feeling sick, scored 16 points for the
Tigers, but only 2 points in the third quarter and 2 points in the
fourth quarter. He looked totally exhausted after the game.
In earlier action, the Bronson junior varsity boys won
over the Trenton junior varsity by the score of 48-21.

The pressure defense that was displayed by the Lady

Among other recommended actions, he suggested the town, with the help of its bank,
reconcile the town's bank accounts) and establish a current, accurate balance of operating
funds. Other recommendations addressed ways and means to maintain accurate records.
A second issue, the town's water supply fragility, is an ongoing problem. A recent water
main break reminded residents of their water system's weaknesses and faults. Because of the
break, water users were warned, by word-of-mouth, to boil their water before consumption.
Subsequent water sample analysis showed no bacterial contamination occurred despite the
break. The broken main is repaired.
Much of the discussion among the old council, the new council, and the attending public
revolved around the town's water system shortcomings. One council member, Marie
Murray, held up a gallon jug of murky, rust-colored water drawn from her kitchen faucet. As
early as September 2005, and repeatedly since, the Town Council has warned city residents

organic materials trapped in water sources. Otter Creek uses chlorine to disinfect its water
supply. The council issued the most recent warning on Oct. 17. The town council published
the same warning on Oct. 18 in the Levy County Journal. Clinical studies show DBPs,
over long-term consumption, may cause cancer. Furthermore, some studies link DBP
consumption in excess of standards with pregnancy difficulties.
The town council has, over the past two years, made improvements and instituted more
vigorous maintenance routines to the town's water supply system attempting to correct its
problems. DBP levels,
Levy Animal Clinic although, decreased, as of
Wade Bullock, DVM October 2007 still exceed
Kendra Philman, DVM the EPA standards.

School Board Addresses Development

Issues for Middle Schoolers

BY SUSAN LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL

At the last Levy County School Board meeting for 2007 on Tue., Dec. 18, the School Health
Advisory Board recommended that the School Board approve the use of the Choosing the Best
curriculum in the middle schools. The committee also met earlier in November to review the
curriculum as well as other available curricula that NEFEC has provided. A rubric (scoring
guide) was used to ensure that a thorough and structured review was made. The Committee
members firmly believe that the schools must begin addressing the various human growth and
development issues that impact students. The curriculum has been approved by the Department
of Education and the Department of Health and adheres to the current board policy (4.14).
This curriculum is a research-based, medical learning model that motivates students through
relationship education, refusal-skill coaching, character education and parent-teen interviews.
Parents are the single most important factor in a teen's sexual decision-making. The goal is
to allow seventh and eighth graders to complete Choosing the Best Path and Choosing the
Best Life curriculum. The board discussed the opportunity for the parents to be notified of the
curriculum and have the opportunity to opt out and teach their child at home. The curricula will
be taught in PE class. The board approved the use of the curriculum in the schools.
In other school board business, two bids were awarded by the county to Gerald Ward. The
first is for various categories of furniture and equipment. The second is for coating and striping
the Rosewood Track. As reported earlier, the track had been damaged and repaired. This created
the need to coat the track before it was striped so that the track would be the same color.
Employee benefits were also discussed. Donna Turner, Benefits Analyst for the school
board, presented the board with an amendment to the 401(k) plan documents to amend the
language controlling the distribution of employee funds for hardship. Hardship distributions
should b6 allowed for certain "immediate and heavy financial need." Tru Source, a third party
administrator, reviewed the language for IRC compliance.
The rules of distribution fall under the guidelines of the Internal Revenue Service. Only
funds the employee contributes to the account may be borrowed, not the interest made on the
employee contribution.-Employees are to have been invested in the account four calendar years


before they become 100
percent vested, which they
must be in order to participate.
If the employee is under 59.5
years, hardship distributions
are subject to income tax and
to a ten percent premature
penalty.
Turner also presented
the resolution amending the
School Board's Flexible
.Benefits Plan to allow the
option of a limited medical
Flexible Spending Account
(FSA). Currently, employees
on the High Deductible
Plan with a Health Savings
Account (HSA) would not
be able to participate in the
Board's FSA, to cover dental
and vision expenses, which
are not covered under the
HSA. Wih this~amendment,
all employees will be abje ..
to contribute to the FSA
for out of pocket expenses
for medical, dental and
vision. The amendment was
approved.

Grow Smart with Xerisca
A Florida-friendly yard doesn't merely offer beautiful
landscapes it also becomes an asset to the
environment, protecting natural resources and preserving
Florida's unique beauty. Recognizing that the home
landscape is part of a larger natural system will help in
creating a Florida-friendly yard.
The University of Florida's Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods (FYN) Program provides science-based
education to the public on how to create a Florida-friendly
yard. The Southwest Florida Water Management District
partners with the university to provide the education
outreach by supporting FYN programs through county
Extension offices in 11 of its 16 counties.
Florida-friendly landscaping can be considered an
expansion of Xeriscape. A Florida-friendly yard goes
beyond Xeriscape, which was started in Colorado,
to better fit our unique geography. It includes best


management practices concerning stormwater runoff and
living on a waterfront.
A properly maintained Florida-friendly yard can help
homeowners conserve water and reduce pollution
of water resources. The Florida-friendly approach to
landscaping emphasizes nine interrelated principles.
The nine principles of xeriscape:
1. Right plant, right place. Plants selected to suit
a specific site will require minimal amounts of water,
fertilizers and pesticides.
2. Water efficiently. Irrigate only when your lawn
needs water. Efficient watering is the key to a healthy
Florida yard and conservation of limited resources.
3. Fertilize appropriately. Less is often best.
Overuse of fertilizers can be hazardous to your yard and
the environment.

4. Mulch.
Maintaining a 3-inch layer
of mulch will help retain soil
moisture, prevent erosion
and suppress weeds.
5. Attract wildlife.
Plants in your yard that
provide food, water and
shelter will attract Florida's
diverse wildlife.
6. Manage yard
pests responsibly. Unwise
use of pesticides can harm
people, pets, beneficial
organisms and the
environment.
7. Recycle. Grass
clippings and leaves
provide nutrients to the soil
and reduce waste disposal
when reused on the
landscape.
8. Reduce
stormwater runoff. Water
running off your landscape
can carry pollutants, such
as gasoline, debris, fertilizer,
pesticides and even 'sdi .
that can adversely impact
water quality. Reduction of
this runoff will help prevent
nonpoint-source pollution.
9. Protect the
waterfront. Waterfront
property, whether on a river,
stream, pond, bay or beach,
is very fragile and should
be carefully protected to
maintain freshwater and
marine ecosystems.

Putting A Contemporary Twist

On Traditional Treats
Thanks to the growing popularity of dessert bars opening
across the country, drinkable desserts are becoming one
of the hottest trends in the culinary world. These creative
cocktails can be a terrific way to impress your guests and
leave a lasting impression at your next party.
David Lebovitz, renowned pastry chef and author of "The
Perfect Scoop," among other cookbooks, has transformed
some-of his favorite treats, such as Tiramis'u and Banana
Split, into sippable sensations.
"I really enjoyed deconstructing some of my favorite
recipes and using the ingredients to create something fresh
and contemporary," says Lebovitz. "Baileys Irish Cream
serves as an excellent base in these cocktails since its
natural flavors of vanilla, chocolate, fresh cream and Irish
whiskey easily complement so many of the flavors already
found in desserts."
You cah bring this dessert bar trend home by trying two
of Lebovitz's contemporary twists on conventional favorites.
Whether served at a traditional holiday feast or at a casual
celebration any time of year, these drinkable desserts are
sure to impress your guests with their contemporary flair:

Chocolate-hazelnut spread
Chocolate syrup
Blend together Irish Cream, mascarpone, espresso, ice
cream and ice until smooth. Drizzle chocolate syrup along
inside edges of oversized martini glasses. Pour mixture from
blender into glasses. Spread a layer of chocolate-hazelnut
spread in between the ladyfingers or sandwich between two
shortbread cookies. Pass the cookies to dip in the cocktails.
If you are short on time or ingredients, you can always
simply serve Baileys on the rocks or blended with ice along
with a creative garnish. And to make sure your party is a
complete success, don't forget to arrange for a safe ride
home for all your guests. For additional recipe ideas, visit
