Bronson Eagles Lose Heartbreaker to

Dixie County in Bronson Holiday Classic


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Bronson Eagles faced the Dixie County Bears in a
showdown for the title of Bronson Holiday Classic champions.
The Bears gave a solid performance from the tip-off to the final
buzzer and won 52-51.
The Bears started the game with a 3-point shot from Cord Hart.
Tevin Henderson blocked a shot for Bears and then made a shot.
William Harris made a field goal to get the Eagles going, score
7-2.
Both teams earned the right to the championship game by
winning. Dixie County beat West Shore and Lafayette. Bronson
beat Umatilla and Middleburg.
Dixie County kept the pressure on the whole game. Normally,
the Eagles find a rhythm and use the entire team to score. This
time, the Bears kept the pressure on the basketball and kept the
Eagles out of their rhythm.
Jimmy Hartsfield sank a 3-pointer at the end of the first period
to give the Bears an edge, 15-9.
In the second period, the Bronson Eagles started to look like
their old form. William Harris, James Rivers and Terrance Dukes
worked the ball. After a scuffle for the ball, with one second left in
the half, Dixie coach Fred Brown was called for a technical foul.
James Rivers took the penalty shots and scored on two out of three
tries. Then, Josh Wasson hit a foul shot to give the Eagles a slim
22-26 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, Dion Thomas took over the scoring for the
Eagles. However, his performance was matched by a steady Cord
Hart. The Dixie Bears came back thanks to Hart, Hartsfield and
Rodney Scott. They took back the lead at the end of the fourth
quarter, 40-38.
The fourth quarter was hectic. The lead changed with every
possession. Kelby Barber sank a 3-point shot which gave the
Eagles a brief 40-43 edge. Cord Hart and Tevin Henderson came
back to score for the Bears.
Bronson head coach Kelly Beckham saw his team miss an

heartbreak.
Terrance Dukes and William Harris led all scores with 17 and
14 points respectively for the Eagles. Cord Hart, Tevin Henderson

35 points for the Bears. ..

Williston Grad Places

Second At Radio-Controlled

Car Race Internationals
BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
S Williston's own Bryan
i Duncan placed second in two
major events at the J-Concept
cme Radio Controlled Car Clash
in Lutz, Fla. against more
than 200 drivers. The 2007
Williston High School
graduate walked away with
second place finishes in the
Truck Limited and Buggy
Limited races. The meet was
an international competition
held on Dec. 7 through 9 that
drew competitors from as
far away as England and the
Ukraine.
Journal photo by Steve Jarboe. Bryan, as you may
Williston's Bryan Duncan holds his two winning plaques from remember, won the Florida
the J-Concepts RC Car Clash Internationals while seated State Championship
behind his two cars and driving controller. several months back. After
qualifying races at the
national event, the main races begin, just like in regular NASCAR racing.
Bryan explained that the competition in the nationals is very fierce and very tough, and
the drivers must remain focused and calm under pressure to win their races. When you
compete at the national level of radio controlled car racing, you are just one step away from
becoming a professional driver.
Adding his two second-place finishes to his Florida State Championship six months
earlier improves his chances of getting even more sponsorship support.
Bryan's next stop for driving will be in California at the 2008 Hot Rod Shoot-out
Internationals.
Bryan is looking forwards to entering this major event, and if he does well in California
he is considering turning professional.
Congratulations once again to Williston's own Bryan Duncan for his accomplishments in
the radio-controlled racing field.


2007 Property Tax

Reform Legislation:

Homestead

Exemption Increase

Explained
This is the first of a four-part series of articles to
inform you of the 2007 Property Tax Reform Legislation
(SB4D)/ConstitutionalAmendment whh will appear
on the January29,2008ballot. The amendment will
require a 60 percent vote Yes to pass. If it passes,
the effective date will be January 1, 2008. hope.
this summary of Part I, Homestead Exemption is
helpful to you, and that you would give it your caref4
consideration.
Part 1. Increased Homestead Exemption
The first aspect of the property tax reform package
has been referred to as a "doubling" of the current
$25,000 homestead exemption to a total of $50,000. The
language however, provides for a homestead exemption
up to the assessed valuation of $25,000 "and, for all,
levies other than school district levies, on the assessed
valuation greater than $50,000 and up to $75,000" (CS
for SJR 2D, 3 Eng., p.9, lines 3-6). Thus, the increased
homestead exemption has two significant qualifications:
1. The increased homestead exemption does not
apply to school district levies; and
2. The increased homestead exemption only applies
to properties with an assessed value greater than $50,000
and up to $75,000.
The implementing statutory language provides that
every person who qualifies to receive a homestead
exemption "is entitled to an additional exemption~of
up to $25,000 on the assessed valuation greater than
$50,000 for all leviers other than school district levies"
(SB 4D 2 Eng., p.17, lines 9-13.)
HOMESTEAD PROPERTY ONLY
Exempt First $25000 f assesse vlue
Taxed Sec&nd $Z5'00 'of sessQ yJlue
Partially Exempt Third $25,000 of assessed value
For example, if the 2008 Value and Millage Rate
is the same as it wasfor 2007, the assessed value for
property assessed between $50,000 and $75,000 would
result in the following savings in each of the following:
Bronson $277 Maximum Savings
Chiefland $315 Maximum Savings
edar Key $291 Maximum Savings
Cedar Key Spec W&S $213 Maximum Savings
Fanning Springs $247 Maximum Savings
Inglis $313 Maximum Savings
Otter Creek $265 Maximum Savings
Willistorn $338 Maximum Savings
Yankeetown $233 Maximum Savings
Rainbow Lakes $228 Maximum Savings
SW Florida WMD $201 Maximum Savings
Suwannee Rvr WMD $196 Maximum savings
:: ther exemptions may still apply

PIP Insurance

Required on All

Vehicles by Jan. 1
Effective Jan. 1, 2008, Florida's Personal Injury
Protection (PIP) law will require motorists to carry
mandatory personal injury and property damage liability
insurance. Under the law, every owner or registrant of a
motor vehicle will be required to carry not only the Property
Damage Liability insurance but also $10,000 insurance
coverage for Personal Injury Protection (PIP).
During the period Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, only the
property damage liability insurance was required to be
carried by motor vehicle owners and registrants, but not PIP.
Many insurance carriers offered their customers the option
of canceling PIP coverage during this time. If you are one
of those who cancelled PIP, you must reinstate the required
PIP effective Jan. 1, 2008. If you do not, the law requires
that the insurance carrier cancel your policy and inform the
Department of Hi'ghway Safety and Motor Vehicles, who
will then suspend your license and registration. To avoid
expensive reinstatement fees for license suspensions and
registration which could range from $150 up to $500, be
proactive and make sure you have the proper auto insurance
coverage prior to Jan. 1, 2008. Law enforcement, including
the Florida Highway Patrol, will be checking proof of
insurance roadside and could issue a citation for failing to
carry the proper insurance. If you have questions please
contact your insurance carrier/agent to make sure you have


the required Personal Injury Protection coverage.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs. Dec. 20 at the Levy
County Quit Museum. Everyone is busy with Christmas and
next week we will be putting crafts and quilts away to get
ready for a new year.
We are half full on the bus trip to the fair Feb. 12 and we
will soon be filling up. If you want to come, call 493-2801
and we will put you down. It will be a fun trip. The cost is
$22 per person. We leave Chiefland at 7 a.m. and Williston
at 7:30 a.m. We eat breakfast at Wildwood. We will get to
the fair at about 10:45 a.m. We leave the fair at 4:30 p.m.,
and we get home about 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday and got so much.
done. The boys who come out help me with things I can't do
anymore like weeding around the gazebo, cleaning the floors
and much more. We have now worked 1,000 boys since
April 24, 1996. Thanks, Lancaster.
We have been given two antique sewing machines and
hope we can soon find out how old they are. They will be
put up for people to see.

National Wildlife

Refuge Nature Walk
The first Monday of each month is Nature Walk Day at
the refuge. We meet at 9 a.m. On the December walk, we
took a trail off Cabin Road on the refuge. This trail meanders
out to the marsh. Along the way we saw a number of
interesting plants including Dahoon and Yapon Holly. There
was a yellow flower blooming by the trail that I didn't know,
but after studying our books we decided.it was Yellowtop
(Flaveria linearis). I take a small backpack with me and
generally at least three books, a bird book, a plant book and
one on butterflies. This helps to identify what we are seeing.
On this walk we also saw a number of butterflies, warblers, a
small flock of wood storks and turkey vultures.
S Our next walk will be-on Jan. 7, I think it's time we did
a walk on the Dixie County side of the refuge. Interested
participants need to call Joan Stephens at (352) 463-1095 for
a meeting place and directions. We'll still meet at 9 a.in. but
not at the headquarters. The Dixie Mainline is a lovely road
through diverse habitats including cypress swamps, and it
crosses a number of creeks. We will carpool from Chiefland.
On other trips through there we have seen barred owls and
otters to mention a few of the species that make their homes
in this part of the refuge.
Join us for an interesting morning in a lovely place.

Miss Honey Says...


Hi!
Here I sit, my pen in hand,
just as dumb as any man
(woman). My mind shuts
down, I cannot think, I do
believe it's on the blink!
Yeah! I do have a mind, just
don't always use it.
Hope everyone had a Merry
Christmas. Me? I am thankful
for all of God's blessings.
I have six kids and spent
Christmas day alone, except
for Jesus and my little ones
(dogs).
Got a 61fie&ktfr6&Keith and
Debbie, but guess the others
forgot me!
My only sister came by one
day last week and brought my
gift and Mary and Donald left
my gift at the door (I wasn't
home). Probably down at
A&A Restaurant rolling the
silver.
And Barbara, where are
you? No show! You can do
better, I know. Hope your
mother and Ray are doing
better. Love them and treasure
them while you have them
because you never know how
much you will miss them until
they are gone.
Mine have both been gone
for quite a while now, but I
still miss them and more so
on the holidays. I have many
good friends, but no one can
replace my mom and dad.
And Jim is missed more on
holidays, but Jesus needed him
and called him home. I'm sure
they are watching over me, for
which I am very thankful.
Oh, where would I be -
-without all my friends and the
love of Jesus? And, yes, my
little dogs love me, too. They
surround me with "puppy
love." Is there any better?
Well, I believe I will shut
up, get up and take this to
the Journal and visit A&A,
have coffee and roll the silver.
At least I am still good for
something, if only a little bit.
But God has been good to me
and I thank Him very much,
Have a good week and God
bless each of you.
So says,
Miss Honey

Any vehicle collision
is a traumatic one. Some,
however, are staged by
criminals whom intentionally
place motorists and passengers in harm's way for financial gain.
The most common types of staged accidents are the "Swoop
and Squat" and "Drive Down" or "Wave On". With the "Swoop
and Squat," criminals maneuver their vehicle in front of a
targeted vehicle and slam on brakes. This radical maneuver is an
attempt to cause the target vehicle to collide with the rear of the
target vehicle to cause an accident or "staged.collision" where
the victim's vehicle appears to be at fault.
The "Drive Down" or "Wave On" involves a situation where
a targeted vehicle does not have the right-of-way and criminals
gesture or waves the targeted motorist on ahead of them. Once
the target vehicle moves, criminals purposely drives their vehicle
into the target to cause an collision that appears to be the target's
fault.
The following are some driving tips to protect motorist from
staged collisions:
If you are involved in a collision on a busy street or
highway, your first and foremost thought should be your safety
and the safety of your passengers. If possible, remove your
vehicle from the traffic lanes. Before removing your vehicle,
make sure you inform the other motorist involved that you are
removing your vehicle for safety reasons and are not attempting
to leave the scene of the accident.
Once you and your passengers are in a safe place, exchange
information with the other motorist involved. Also, be aware
of people at the scene of the collision who might be potential
witnesses. Approach potential witnesses and try to obtain a
statement from them of what they saw. Also write down their
individual names, addresses and telephone numbers for future
reference.
Carry a disposable camera in the glove compartment of
your vehicle. Take as many pictures of the other vehicle and its
passengers as possible.
If you think you have been involved in a staged collision,
make sure to count the number of passengers. i, th other; ...)
vehicle. If possible, get theirindividual names, addresses,. .
telephone numbers and driver license numbers. Often,:
passengers will file claims than were in the vehicle when the
collision occurred.
Criminals involved in staged collisions prefer "lone
drivers" because "passengers" make good witnesses. Luxury
and commercial vehicles are often targeted because they offer
the promise of extensive insurance coverage.
When driving, be aware of other vehicles around you.
Immediately report the crime to law enforcement. Always allow
ample space between you and the vehicle in front of you. Look
beyond the vehicle in front of you. If you see a vehicle slowing-
down in front of you, begin to slow down also. Do not wait for
the vehicle in front of you to slow down first.
Be Very careful when turning from a lane that allows
two vehicles to turn simultaneously. Criminals who commit
staged collisions often prey on vehicles that cross the centerline,
purposely sideswiping a targeted vehicle.
Often, "witnesses" are positioned near the scene of the
staged collision to support the involved criminal's account and
to contradict the innocent driver's account of what actually
happened. In some instances, criminals inflict injury upon
themselves or claim hard-to-dispute soft-tissue injuries in order
to collect on insurance claims.
Reduce your chances of being an accident victim by always
practicing defensive driving.

Walk To Bethlehem Benefit a Success


BY JACQUIE POTTER
A special thanks to all 712 guests who came out to Walk
To Bethlehem ard who so generously gave donations so
that Living Water Life Center could "Pay It Forward" back
to the community. Not a dime was kept for personal use by
the church.
What a joy it was to share back to the community in this
way.
Because of the generous donations from the community,
LWLC was blessed to give a bicycle to one young boy who
would not have otherwise experienced Christmas and a gift
certificate to a single mom with four children.
One of the highlights of the Walk To Bethlehem was a
private showing for war hero Corporal Catlin Mixson and
his friend Corporal James Burchette, Jr. and their families.

Library to Present

Highwaymen Program
The Friends of the Williston Public Library will hold its
first program of the year 2008, Thurs., Jan. 17. It will be in
the library starting at 7:30 p.m. and will be a combination
visual and speaking program.
Gary Monroe, author, speaker and photographer will
present a program titled "Harold Newton: The Original
Highwayman." The Highwaymen were a group of self-
taught African-American artists from Fort Pierce who
painted their way out of poverty in the 1950s. While they
have become part of Floridians' consciousness in recent
years, Harold Newton, leader of the loosely-knit group
and Florida landscape painter, was the one who led them
to national acclaim. Gary Monroe will tell Newton's story
and that of the Highwaymen by providing an overview of
quintessential paintings, featuring some of Newton's finest
work.
The program is provided through the Florida Humanities
Council, an association which "Friends" has sponsored for
several years.
This should be an outstanding program, and "Friends" is
proud to kick off its 2008 programs with it. Gary Monroe's .
subjects have been of the old-world culture of Miami's
South Beach, the lifestyle of and rituals of Haiti and Disney
World's vacation set. He is the author of The Highwaymen:
Florida's African-American Landscape Painters and Harold
Newton: the Original Highwayman, both from University
Press of Florida.

Bronson Holiday Classic


Bronson Eagles Handle Umatilla in First Round


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL


The Bronson Eagles
varsity basketball team
handed the Bulldogs from
Umatilla a first round loss
41-68.
The Eagles came out cold
as ice. Instead of a little
chilly outside the gym you
might think it was below
freezing. The Bulldogs
showed they were ready to
play and lead after the first
quarter 13-7.
In the second quarter,

Umatilla. couple of key rebounds that
turned the momentum of the
game. Rodolfo Contreras added a lay-up and a field goal
towards the end of the half to lead the Eagles to a 28-18
halftime lead.


The Eagles came out a little sluggish in the third quarter.
However, when they felt the Bulldogs making a challenge,
they just switched to a higher gear.
Terrance Dukes went coast to coast for a score for the
Eagles, then stole the ball and drained another field goal.
The Eagles' Joey Sparrow drained a 3-pointer that brought
a roar from the home crowd and the Eagles never looked
back.
M.J.Bentley was the top scorer for the Bulldogs.
Everyone in the gym enjoyed 3-point shooting, including
three in a row, as he scored 17 points. Sean Bentley was
next with 12 points.
For the Bronson Eagles, William Harris and James Rivers
had 10 points each, while
Terrance Dukes was close behind with 9 points. They
move to the winner's bracket against Middleburg, who beat
the Chiefland Indians earlier.
In two very exciting games in the other bracket, it was
Lafayette 74 and Chipley 68 in a overtime thriller. Then,
the Dixie County Bears held off the Wildcats from West
Shore 58-60.

Chiefland Loses in First Round to Middleburg


Journal photo by David Leach.
There was no one to stop Middleburg's Cody White from
moving the ball and scoring.


BY DAVID LEACH'
FOR THE JOURNAL

In a contest involving eight area teams, the Chiefland
Indians dropped a first-round game to the Broncos of
Middleburg in Bronson. Both teams started cold from the
field but the Broncos thawed out and won 79-53.
Soon it became apparent that in order to win, the Indians
must find a way to stop Middleburg's Cody White. Then it
became apparent that no one was stopping Cody White. He
went on to lead all scorers with 24 points.
White moved like the invisible man but with a basketball
through the Indian defense. He seemed to control the
tempo of the game. He was under the basket at one end of
the court, then moments later under the other basket. He
stole the ball, rebounded and passed off when necessary.
In complete control, he seemed to be one step ahead of
everyone else.
White scored on an interception to put the Broncos ahead
of the Indians at the end of the first quarter, 16-10. The
Broncos continued strong on defense while J. Alexander
pitched in with more offenselfdr 'ddleburg.'
There was more of the same in the second half. The
Indians showed a low shooting percentage while the
Broncos built up a lead. Soon the Broncos seemed relaxed
and other players got in on the scoring.
Stephen Davis led the scoring for the Indians with 1.7
points. It's a good thing Coach Lundy can't get a grip on
his hair, because he would be pulling it out over the missed
opportunities by the Indians, as they move to the loser
bracket in the three day tournament.

on Saturday.
Keeping pace, Dixie County defeated the Lafayette Hornets 76-72 to earn the right to meet the Eagles in the
championship round.
James Rivers set the tone of the game by controlling the rebounding for the Eagles.
He wasable to give the offense the second and third chance for the basket. Defensively,
he short-circuited the Broncos' attempts at scoring.
The Bronson Eagles found a rhythm that allowed their three big scorers to score big.
Along with controlling the boards, James Rivers led all scorers with 18 points. William
SHarris and Terrance Dukes were right behind with 16 points each.

Chiefland Rebounds in Bronson Holiday Classic


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Chiefland Indians varsity basketball team rebounded
from a first-round loss to beat Umatilla 65-55. The Indians
will now face North Shore for a fifth place showdown in the
tournament. North Shore beat Chipley in earlier action 46-
41.
In the early going, Umatilla unleashed its primary
weapon, M. J. Bentley. He rang up some 3-pointers like he
owned the store. Then the Chiefland Indians showed what
they brought to the party as Tommy Sheffield, Marquis
Jackson and Eugene Carter sank baskets.
The game was on. At the end of the first quarter, it was
16-15 and the game was up for grabs.
Cantrell Richardson appeared on the court and proved
effective for the Indians. He sank a 3-pointer at the
beginning of the second quarter that propelled the Indians
to a scoring flurry in the period. With a tip-in for a score, a
clean-up for a score and a field goal for a score, Richardson


was a catalyst for the Indians to build a lead and make a
difference in the game.
Delmar Dial, Casey Brown and Tommy Sheffield took
ownership of the property under the basket for the Indians.
Suddenly Chiefland was getting multiple shots at the basket
while Umatilla was being starved for shots.
At the end of the second quarter, Travis Donald sank a
pair of three pointers to give the Indians a 41-26 halftime
lead.
The Bulldogs had some bright spots but Cantrell
Richardson answered for the Indians with more rebounds,
steals and (bulldog) determination to control the ball and
score.
The Indians continued to control the boards with Delmar
Dial in a staring role for Chiefland.
As the game ended, Delmar Dial was the go-to guy for
the basket underneath. He secured the margin of victory
for the Chiefland Indians down the stretch, making the
necessary shots to secure the win.

The Chiefland Indians beat the Wildcats from West
Shore to claim fifth place in the Bronson Holiday Classic
basketball tournament. With a solid effort, the Indians
won 42-50.
Marquis Jackson set the tone of the game with an early
steal for the Indians. Stephen Davis started to control the
boards with good rebounding. Jackson came back with a
3-pointer and the contest was on.
Eugene Carter made a fine steal and a foul shot at the
end of the first period to give the Indians a slim lead 10-
11.
In the second quarter, Travis Donald got upset with
the officiating as he got called for two quick fouls. Coach

Papa John's Holiday Classic


Williston Red Devils Fall-in Opener 58-52

BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR


The Williston Red Devils played a tremendous game for
four minutes of the fourth quarter, but it was not enough to
hold back the Wesley Chapel Wildcats from the Tampa area,
in the opening round of the Papa John's Holiday Classic.
The first quarter of the game fast paced, up and down the
court with both teams experiencing a cold shooting hand
from the field. The Wildcats took a slim 9-8 lead at the end
of the first quarter of play.
The second quarter was more of the same play from both
teams as the Wildcats made several free throws after being
on the bonus early in the second quarter.
The Wildcats were able to keep pace with the Red Devils
and took a 23-20 lead at the end of the first half.
The Red DevilS came out to start the third quarter with a
fierce pressure defense that caused two straight turnovers by
the Wildcats as the Red Devils took a brief 24-23 lead.
As the Red Devils continued their aggressive defense,
they were whistled for eight personal fouls in the first five
minutes of the third quarter. The Wildcats cashed in from the
free throw line as they made 13 of 15 free throws and pulled
away for the largest lead by either team as the third quarter
'nded with the Wildcats leading 45-37. The Wildcats only
committed three personal fouls in the third quarter, which
kept the Red Devils off the free throw line.
t The fourth quarter started with the Red Devils appearing
to be much stronger and quicker as the Wildcats seemed
to be slowing down. The Red Devils played their best
basketball of the game in a three-minute stretch to pull to

SHomeowners Discover A New "Intruder"


Today's housing market has thrown a number of curves at
buyers and sellers. But now experts say a newly discovered
problem is further raising the financial risk of buying certain
homes--and that it may even affect a family's health
regardless of whether they're looking to sell.
The culprit? Vapor intrusion, an indoor air-quality issue that-
-like asbestos and radon gas before it--is causing significant
concern across the nation.
Vapor intrusion can develop in a home when evaporating
volatile chemicals from polluted soil and groundwater seep
near or underneath a property, Among the wide range of
potential health implications that have been connected to
the phenomenon are eye irritation, respiratory problems,
headaches and nausea.
What's more, experts say that long-term exposure might
even raise a person's chances of developing cancer, although
the effects vary based on the individual exposed, the chemical
involved and the dose and length of exposure.

Know Your Risks
In 2007, there were more than 400,000 known instances
of leaking underground storage tanks and more than 1
million chemical spills in neighborhoods. That's why it's a
good idea to look for home inspectors offering Environmental
Data Resources Inc.'s (EDR) Neighborhood Environmental
Report.
"The reports help identify potential environmental risks
such as leaking underground tanks, landfills and toxic waste
sites on or near a property that may threaten your well-being
or property value," explains Ben Cesare, managing director
of EDR residential services.
Cesare says this "snapshot" of environmental history is
generated from the largest collection of local, state and
federal hazard records in the U.S.
The reports can be valuable tools for both homeowners
and buyers, since a property affected by contamination
usually won't have any visual indicators. Homeowners,
specifically, could face liability risks or loss of value when it

comes time to sell.
Protect Your Home
Fortunately, the presence
of vapor intrusion isn't
necessarily cause to pass
on buying a house, since
a number of ways exist to
get rid of such airborne
contaminants.
For instance, you might be
able to simply seal cracks
in a home's foundation or
install a ventilation system
similar to those used to
remove radon gas. Other
alternatives include adjusting
the home's heating and
air-conditioning systems to
maintain a positive pressure
inside the house to prevent
vapors from infiltrating.
A Growing Problem
Environmental
professionals are discovering
that vapor intrusion may
be more widespread than
once thought. The chemical
fumes that seep into homes
are often from former gas
stations or dry cleaners
that were torn-down long-:_:--:
ago, as well as from current
or former industrial sites.
Contamination from these
types of sites can travel
undetected via underground
plumes.
To find out if contaminants
are present in your home
or in a property you're
considering buying,
contact an EDR-certified
professional. For more
information, visit the Web site
www.edrnet.com.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


FREE Smoking Cessation Classes

and FREE Patches!
The Levy County Health Department announces FREE smoking cessation classes
beginning in Bronson on January 9th, 2008 at the Levy County Health Department
and beginning in Williston on Jan. 10, 2008 at the Nature Coast Hospital. All classes
begin at 5:30 p.m. and last approximately one to one and a half hours. FREE nicotine
replacement patches and program materials for all participants!!!
If interested, pre-register by calling Kristina Zachry, Tobacco Prevention
Specialist, at (352) 486-3404. Registration will also be permitted at the sessions, but
space is limited. Pre-registering is the only way to guarantee your opportunity to
participate.
The smoking cessation classes last for six sessions and are based on the American
Lung Association's highly successful Freedom From Smoking program. Each
smoker who joins the classes will develop an individual plan for quitting and learn
a step-by-step method for changing behavior and quitting smoking. This group
approach uses positive thinking, alternative behaviors, one-on-one help, rewards, and
group support to help participants stop smoking successfully. The emphasis of the
classes is on long-term freedom from smoking, and includes the latest skills for good
stress management, weight control, assertive communication, and exercise skills to
help you succeed.
