Chiefland Raises Waste Collection Fees

the county's transfer station.
Waste Pro, the company handling waste pickup, requested the increase to compensate for
the new landfill fees.
In November, the county increased the cost of disposal at the transfer station by 35
percent. To compensate for that increase, the city would need to raise its residential rates
from $13.44 to $14.88 per home per month. Commercial monthly rates will increase from
$19.62 to $21.22 for a 96-gallon waste cart. Waste Pro Division Manager Bob Wolk said the
company is not receiving any of the increase. The additional money is passed through and
paid to the county.
Mayor-Commissioner Teal Pomeroy said the city should increase the rates so that the
company does not take a loss on the county's action.
"It's not fair for Waste Pro to take it on the chin for a rate increase," he said.
Commissioner Rollin Hudson said he was reluctant to support the increase because
the city had made a commitment to residents to keep fees low. However, with the county
increasing disposal fees, the city has little choice but to follow suit, he said.
Residents will see higher waste collection bills after a resolution comes back to the board
Jan. 28. Commissioner Teresa Barron moved to approve the rate increase. Commissioner
Frank Buie seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous.

A.D. Andrews

Sues to

Clarify Voting

"Residency"
BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER
Levy County Journal Publisher Andy Andrews filed
court papers Monday seeking a declaratory judgment
clarifying his right to vote in Chiefland elections.
In the suit filed in the Levy County Courthouse,
attorney Jack Ross asked the court to affirm Andrews'
right to vote in Chiefland elections, a civil act he has
done since 1964.
His right and the rights of four family members came
under scrutiny this fall when Alice Monyei, a Chiefland
commissioner who lost her bid for re-election, filed a
complaint with State Department Division of Elections
alleging that Andrews, four family members, and six
other voters were not eligible to vote in city elections
because they did not live in the city. The Florida
Department of Law Enforcement investigated, sent its
report to Bill Cervone, state attorney for the Eighth
Judicial Circuit, who found no cause to bring charges.
He noted that the law of residency was vague and that
some of the voters had been voting in city elections for
years without any direction that it was improper.
Cervone wrote that three of the 11 people named in
the report were not eligible to vote in Chiefland and
would not vote again. Three others are voting legally.
The remaining five -Andrews and four relatives
agreedto seek a legal decision sp that the issue of
residency could be clarified.
To do that, Andrews had'to sue Chiefland Manager
Grady Hartzog, Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell,
and Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning.
Andrews is not seeking damages from these officials.
The lawsuit is the legal means to get a ruiiig on his
residency.
his' suit, Andrews argues that he registered to vote
and votes in Chiefland elections because
he has registered to vote continuously in Chiefland
since 1964 and in no other place,
he owns property in Chiefland,
he receives his mail at his Chiefland address,
he spends a substantial amount of time at his
Chiefland address,
he filed legal papers last year declaring his
Chiefland address his legal address,
he has personal property at this Chiefland address,
-he had not claimed a homestead outside Chiefland.
The court has not provided a timeframe to hear
arguments in the case. Andrews and his family can vote
in Chiefland elections while awaiting a court decision.
Andrews and his family volunteered not to vote in
Chiefland city elections but continue to vote in Precinct
13 for county, state and federal elections.

Bomb Scare at Chiefland
Middle School Quickly
Resolved
BY KELLIE PARKIN
FOR THE JOURNAL
Students and faculty evacuated Chiefland Middle School
Thursday morning, Jan. 10, due to a bomb threat.
The threat was found written on the wall in a girls'
restroom: "There's a BomB in the school and it is going to
blow up Soon!!"
The school was promptly vacated. Following established
security procedures, it took approximately 45 seconds upon
receiving the order for teachers and staff to escort more than
400 students to the football field, CMS Principal Robert
Turnipseed said.
The empty building was secured in lockdown mode within
a few minutes of the evacuation order.
As a precaution, adjacent Chiefland High School was
placed on a modified lockdown. Class proceeded as usual,
with the exception that no students were allowed near the
middle.school campus. High school administrators were
stationed on the road between the two campuses to ensure
that no student entered the vicinity. "Just in case any of them

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL


Poet Kay Ryan to Visit

CFCC
Poet Kay Ryan, who is known for the simplicity and brevity
of her compositions, will visit Central Florida Community
College on Thursday, Jan. 24.
The reading will be held at 7 p.m. in the Fine Arts
Auditorium on the Ocala Campus, 3001 S.W. College Road,
with a reception and book signing immediately following. The
event is free and open to the public.
Ryan's poems typically are less than 20 lines long and the
lines contain fewer than six syllables, but they hold powerful
messages. Her work has been likened to the small, but
wonderful Faberg6 eggs.
Ryan is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Poetry
Magazine, The Atlantic and Paris Review, and she has
received a number of awards including a prestigious
Guggenheim fellowship and Poetry Magazine's $100,000
Ruth Lily Prize. Her books include Elephant Rocks in 1996,
Say Uncle in 2000 and The Niagara River in 2005.
Ryan has been writing since age 19 and has been teaching
remedial English at College of Marin in California since 1971.
"Teaching basic skills is really like saving lives," she says.
This is the sixth reading in the Debra Vazquez Memorial
Poetry Series which commemorates the life of poet and CFCC
faculty member Debra Vazquez. For information about the
event, contact CFCC Assistant Professor of Communications
Sandra Cooper, 352-854-2322, ext. 1361. To learn about other

By MEGAN QUINN
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
If you are anticipating changing jobs or retiring from your employer, your retirement
savings could get eaten up by taxes if you don't pay attention to the fine print. Your
employer is required to provide several forms to assist you in making the "distribution
decision," for perhaps the largest sum of money you receive in your lifetime! These
forms include a "Tax Notice" to inform you of all the rules on taxes related to receiving
a distribution from your company's plan. The other important form is called a "Benefit
Election Form." This form details.your plan's distribution options and typically includes
four options on what you can do with your distribution. Let's explore each option.
1. Leaving the money in your ex-
YOUR OPTIONS employer's plan. At first glance, this may

3. Do a direct rollover to your new investment choices and performance. But
employer's plan. now that you no longer work there, staying
4. Do a direct rollover to an IRA informed about the plan and future changes
may not be as easy as it was when you
worked there. Additionally, the company may decide to change the investment options
down the road and you may not like them. Also, when you leave your funds in the plan,
you are subject to the terms of the plan in how you can withdraw the funds when you
are ready to receive retirement income. Employers generally prefer you take the money
out as the plan does incur costs to carry your account after you have left the employer.
All in all, most people do not choose this option very often.
2.. Take a distribution. This can be a very tempting option when you see a check this
large. But be aware! The employer is required to withhold 20% of the taxable portion
of the distribution for Federal income taxes if you chose this option. Depending on the
amount of your distribution, this withholding may or may not be enough to actually
cover the taxes due when you file your tax return. And you also may be subject to a
10% federal penalty tax in addition to ordinary iicome taxes if you are under a certain
age. This can.drastically reduce the amount of your savings.
3. Do a direct rollover to your new employer's plan. People who are changing jobs
may want to roll their retirement savings,into their new employer's plan. This may
-,make sense if you dopnot have the self-discipline to not touch the funds if you werei:i
'tolroll thiifif aniTRA. But be aware, your next employer is not obligated t6 accept
" dlovene;buom-aipior-pde9tif adtnt-b n-"
addeF expense to the employer. The employer is required to disclose this information in
their document and Summary Plan Description.
4. The last option is to do a direct rollover to an IRA. This may be a good option as
you have few restrictions on how you invest the money. Additi6nallly,yo6u control the
account as to when and how much you withdraw from the IRA. If you are changing
jobs, it is important to view this money as your future retirement nest egg ~nd not be
tempted to spend it. Rollovers defer the payment of Federal and :tate income taxes.
Ifyou withdraw money from your IRA prior to attaining age 59'2, you are subject to
a 10% federal penalty tax plus ordinary income taxes. If you are retiring, this option
provides you with ultimate control of your income. Between the ages of 59 and 70
, you can withdraw any sum you wish. If you retire early (before age 59 ) and need
income from your IRA, the tax code permits a "72(t) distribution" whereby you take
substantially equal payments based on your life expectancy. A 72(t) distribution must
follow strict rules to avoid getting hit with the 10% federal penalty tax, but can be a
viable option in certain circumstances. Once you attain age 70 /2, you are forced to
withdraw a "required minimum distribution" based upon a special uniform distribution
table .
SOne final note: Before making any distribution decision, talk to your tax advisor and
investment representative to learn about your options from a tax perspective and an
investment perspective. Your investment representative can show you your IRA rollover
options and assist you in selecting investments that, are right for you, based on your
investment objectives, risk tolerance and time horizon. Then you will be prepared to
ake an informed decision on what to do with your retirement savings.

DAVID v GOLIATH
A Commentary by A. D. Andrews
Recently, a Chiefland public official used her access to local media for a personal vendetta.
She attacked and tried to embarrass me, my family and my employees because she lost an
election. However, these personal attacks are unfair, untrue and uncalled for.
First, it is ridiculous to suggest that one person could singlehandedly lose an election for
anyone. Chiefland is a small town, but it is not ajoke. We actually have policies and rules in
place to make things work the way they should.
Furthermore, we have more than one newspaper to voice opinions. No one corporate media
source controls the flow of government news.
Chiefland works the way it is supposed to, and when it doesn't, we have procedures to address


problems. That makes
Chiefland a great place to
live and work. I may have
residences elsewhere, as do
many Floridians, but my.


Iri this case, the citizens of Chiefland voted, and, if there
was some impropriety in how the election was run, that matter
is appropriately addressed with the Supervisor of Elections. I
am not the Supervisor of Elections. I do not decide who votes
and who does not. I do not decide who votes for whom.
I am active politically, and I work hard to energize others
to become active politically because I believe the voting
process thrives when we all participate. If there is some legal
technicality that robs me of my vote, I will make whatever
adjustments I must to regain my privileges here. I have the
highest respect for the law. In the interim, I will continue to
participate in the public arena in Chiefland and all of Levy
County.
. For a public official to use her special privileges to try to
bully me into silence is outrageous. For a public official to use
her special privileges for a. personal attack is unforgivable.
To manipulate the media into harassing my family and
employees is mean-spirited and cowardly.
I did not lose the election for this public official, but my
personal opinion (which I am allowed to express, even if
I own a business) is that, in this case, the voting process
worked as it should.

Join Paddle Florida

2008 Camp on

the Banks of the

Suwannee
Covering 123 miles of the scenic Suwannee River
Wilderness Trail, the seven-day paddling event launches
from the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and finishes
at beautiful Manatee Springs State Park. As many as 300
paddlers will be going with the flow, averaging 18 miles
per day and camping on the banks of Florida's beautiful
Suwannee River.
"This event is truly unique because of its partnership with
the Suwannee River Wilderness Trail," says event organizer
Bill Richards. "Other statewide paddling events use area
schools or community centers to house paddlers shuttling
them back and forth to the river each day. But Paddle Floridc
allows paddlers to camp right on the banks of the river, andS
experience the river on a much more personal level."
Paddle Florida is held in cooperation with the Florida Park
Service and the Suwannee River Water Management District,
These two organizations, through partnerships with both
the public and private sectors, have created the 171-mile
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail. The Trail is a series of
cabins, river camps and private "hubs" that, taken together,
make the Suwannee River accessible to paddlers, hikers,
bikers, equestrian enthusiasts and other user groups.
Dates: March 20-27, 2008
Deadlines have changed: You do not have to paddle the
entire river, see the website for more information on trip
options. Registration should be postmarked by Feb. 22.
For more information, go to paddleflorida.org or call Bill"

Bears Press Eagles and Win in Second Half


By STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
The Bronson Eagles started out against the Dixie County Bears running and pressing on
defense, and it appeared as if this was going to be an easy win for the Eagles.
After falling behind 2-0 to the Bears, the Eagles came roaring back and took a very
impressive 15-8 lead as the first quarter ended.
The Eagles continued to execute their game and matched up against the Bears shot for
shot in an explosive up-and-down the court second half.

,Someone ran right out of their shoe as the Bears took down
the rebound.


The Eagles increased
their lead to eight points in
the second quarter as they
took a 28-20 lead into half
time, behind the scoring of
Terrance Dikes and William
Harris.
The third quarter saw the
Eagles continue to build on
their lead as they took a 40-
30 lead at the four-minute
mark of the third quarter.
Then the rafters fell in on
the Eagles as the Bears from
Dixie County went to a full
court press.
The Eagles began to
struggle with their passes
and their usually excellent
execution went on vacation.
The Eagles turned the ball
over time and time again,
and the Bears made steal
after steal and turned the
steals into points. The Bears
pulled to within three points
of the Eagles who went three
minutes without getting off
a shot.
The score at the end of
the third quarter was Eagles
40 and the Bears 37.
The fourth quarter got


underway with the Bears
continuing to press the Eagles.
After two quick steals and
two baskets, the Bears now
had the lead 41-40 for the first
time since they led 2-0 in the
opening minute of the game.
The Eagles called a quick
timeout, but the Bears stole
the inbound pass and Jimmy
Hartsfield banged in a three-
point basket to give the Bears
a 44-40 lead. Then another
steal and basket and the Bears
now enjoyed a 46-40 lead.
The Eagles finally scored
as Kelby Barber sank a three-
point shot from the corner.
As the fourth quarter
continued the Bears increased
their lead to 50-43 at the four-
minute mark, and the Eagles
called another timeout. Journal Photo by Steve Jarboe.
With the score now 58- Enrique Wiseman goes up after the rebound during junior
54, the Eagles were trying varsity action.
to make a comeback of their
own, But with just 1:05 remaining in the game, and the Eagles unable to cash in at the foul
line, the Bears held a 61-55 lead with just nine seconds left. The Eagles were not able to get
another shot off as timeran out.
The Bears from Dixie County won the game 61-55.
Terrance Dukes led the Eagles in scoring with 15 points, William Harris had 12 points.
Kelby Barber came off the bench to score 11 points.
Cord Hart had 13 points for the Bears, and Tevin Henderson 12 points. Jimmy Hartsfield
ended the game with 10 points including the three-point basket that turned the game in favor
of the Bears.
THE BRONSON JUNIOR VARSITY downed the Dixie County junior varsity 59141 as
they outscored the Bears 17-6 in the third quarter to take a commanding 47-30 lead.
The Eagles were led in scoring by Raymond Powers with 18 points as he scored 12 points
in the third quarter. Thomas Mitcham had 9 points and Dustin Crutchfield and Enrique
Wiseman had 8 points each.
Fenix Jackson led the Bears junior varsity with 11 points.

As the second quarter began, Saule Kantautaite
took charge for The Rock. She brought the ball up the
court, set up the plays, and made shots, and went for the
rebounds... get the picture? Soon she began dishing off
passes and getting the rest of her teammates in the rhythm
of the game. : ;.
The Lady Indians' shooting remained cold, and the
ball just would not fall in the basket. TheLadyLions got
bolder and pressed for ball control. Soon they managed
t o challenge the Lady Indians on every pass they made.
,Even the inbound passes were challenged with success.
Before the end of the contest, the Lady Indians suffered
through 40 turnovers in the game.
The third and fourth quarters were all The Rock. The
Lady Indians could not find an intensity level high enough
to challenge them. The gym was sparse, and the fans that
were present remained quiet.
The reason for this dull outing by the Lady Indians was
not apparent.
Saule Kantautaite had 20 points for The Rock,
followed by Jacqueline Owens with 15 points and Indre
SMikelmaite with 12 points. :
Katelyn Allen led the way for Chiefland with 9 points.
Charelene Davis had 6 points for the Lady Indians.

Red Devils Stay Focused This Time

Around for Win 59-50 Over Newberry


Red Devils Miss Two

Chances to Win in

Closing Seconds
BY ANGEL FLOYD
FOR THE JOURNAL
After coming off an almost flawless performance
in downing district foe Newberry just two nights
earlier, the Williston High School boys struggled to
get anything going Thursday evening against Trinity
Catholic High School. From the beginning to the end,
Trinity Catholic controlled most of the game. Trinity
Catholic played well against a Williston team they had
beaten previously at the Papa John's Classic over the
Christmas break, held at Trinity Catholic High School.
Williston struggled most of the first quarter, giving
the Celtics the lead at the end of the first quarter, 9-4.
The Red Devils held on and fought back, and kept
the game close as they ended the first half trailing the
Celtics 13-19.
As the third quarter got underway, the Red Devils
made a run at the Celtics and managed to pull to within
two points as the third quarter came to a close. The
Celtics held a 30-28 lead in the low scoring contest.
The Red Devils continued to exchange baskets with
the Celtics and managed to take the lead only to lose it
on the next Celtics possession.
These two very well-coached teams exchanged
baskets, fast breaks, steals and fouls during a very
exciting fourth quarter.
The Red Devils had two different opportunities in the
closing seconds to tie or win the game.
One of the best free throw shooters for the Red
Devils missed the front end of a 1-1 to tie or take the
lead.
The Celtics rebounded the missed free throw and
went down court and missed a shot of their own.
The Red Devils rebounded the missed shot and
took the ball up court and missed their shot at the end
to again win the game as they trailed 38-39, in a low
scoring fourth and final quarter.
Trinity Catholic survived the low scoring contest by
the slimmest of margins, 39-38. This was a much closer
contest than the previous meeting between these two
very good teams.
Isaac Floyd, led all scorers with 11 points for the Red
Devils.
Junior Varsity Celtics Win 49-47
In the junior varsity game that was played earlier,
little did anyone know this was a sign of what to expect
in.the varsity game to follow. .
"ii this very tight and exciting game, the Trinity
Cathlic junior varsity held on to take a 49-47 win over
the Red Devils junior varsity.

Te.Red Devils reacted with tighter full-couttpressure., .
Sophomores Isaac Floyd and Deonte Welch took over with some
excellent drives to the basket and outside shooting.
The Red Devils pulled ahead 31-18 as the first half came to a
close.
As the third quarter got underway, both teams played even
basketball and the Red Devils held a 44-28 lead until the last
minute of the third quarter when the Panthers scored five straight
points. This was topped off by a 40-foot buzzer beater by the
Panthers Antwan Ivey to pull the Panthers to within eight points
at 36-44.
With the Panthers scoring nine unanswered points to end the
third quarter, the Red Devil fans began to get back into what was


BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
In their first meeting several weeks ago, the Williston Red
Devils boy's basketball team lost their focus and allowed the
Newberry Panthers to come from behind and give them their only
loss in district play this season. The Panthers were able'to come
from behind in Newberry and beat the Red Devils on a pair of
last-second free throws.
With the talented players on all teams in the district this year,
no lead has been too large for any team. Couple this with what
seems to be more inconsistent officiating this season than in
previous seasons.
In just about every game I have covered this season, the
referees let both teams play a street ball game one minute with
obvious fouls not being called, and then the next minute call a
touch foul. Where have the good officials gone who are consistent
with their calls? Fans just want to see consistency, because
after all, the games should be about the young men and women
playing, not inconsistent officiating.
This game was never in doubt, from the 6-6 tie at the four-
minute mark of the first quarter as the Red Devils ran off 9
straight points to take a 15-6 lead at the end of the quarter.


Journal Photo by Steve Jarboe.
The screen is set, blocking out two Panther defenders as
Isaac Floyd, No. 3, drives to the basket for two of his 21
points.

Newberry Head Coach Chris Baker was very jubilant talking
to me about all the talent in the district this year before the game
started.
I agree with him fully that there are three or four teams that
have the talent to go all theway. :.
Isaac loyd ended the game with 21 pon e Welch
added 14'points, CJ James had 9 points a a great obard gatme;
Xavier Woods paced the Panthers in scoring with 15 points,
and Matt Robinson added 13 points. Antonio Brown had 9
points.
In the junior varsity game, the Red Devils team continues to
play good basketball. The JV Red Devils were led by Tony James
with 21 points and Cody Brown with 10 points, for a 62-49 win
over the Panthers.
Josh Robinson had 11 points, and Baccerins Dinkens had 10:
points.


INDIANS FIGHT INDIANS
FORT WHITE VERSUS CHIEFLAND BASKETBALL GAME ENDS IN BENCH-CLEARING SCUFFLE


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Fort White Indians played the Chiefland Indians at home. It was a close game. For nearly
30 minutes, it was just a good contest. With a little more than two minutes left in the contest, one
Chiefland player let loose with a punch after both of them were going for the ball. Both benches
cleared. After order was restored, the referee immediately called an end to the contest. The final
score remained Fort White 42, Chiefland 41.
The Chiefland Indians jumped out to an early lead. For the home crowd, that was good news.
Their team does better when they are ahead or even at the start. They were facing a good Fort
White team that placed ahead of Chiefland in the recent Bronson Holiday Classic Tournament.
The Chiefland Indians maintained the lead as Delmar Dial established early control under the
basket. He was able to grab rebounds and score or give his team another try at the basket.
Fort White's big center, Mathew Milatz, was in charge for the visitors. When his team got
him the ball, he managed to score even though he was double-teamed.
The Chiefland Indians tried to prevent him from getting the ball anywhere on the court.
Under the basket, he was especially effective. A quick little jump shot off the backboard looked
easy for him.
Everyone on the Chiefland Indians team was doing their job. For a change, their shooting
percentage was approaching the good range. Marquis Jackson was on target with three-pointers.
Eugene Carter was firing on all cylinders in the transition game. Delmar Dial, Casey Brown and
Tommy Sheffield were all able to keep the Fort White Indians behind in the score.
Fort White started to close the gap in the third quarter but then Chiefland responded. Overall,
Fort White made up some ground by getting the ball to their big center, Mathew Milatz. The
score was 32-36 with one quarter to go.
Fort White continued to press for the lead. With three minutes to go it was anybody's game.
Fort White evened the score at 41-41.
The Chiefland Indians committed two fouls in a row to give the Ft. White Indians four
chances from the free throw line. They made one of them, score now 42-41.
In the next sequence, a Fort White player and a Chiefland player went up for a rebound at the
same time: In frustration at seeing his team's lead evaporate at the very end of the game, and
momentum of the game in Fort White's favor, the Chiefland player threw a punch.
In the blink of aneye, both benches cleared. I was just as startled as many of the on-court
players.
Two main groups wound up on a pile on the floor, the principal player pile and the everybody
else pile.
Chiefland Police Officer Nick Viaggio who was on game duty and dove into the principal
player pile to break it up. Coaches from both teams called for discipline and order.
The brawl did not spread beyond the court. Most players in fact were just trying to protect
their own.


Journal Photo by David Leach.
Officer Nick Viaggio breaks up the principal participants. All the coaches and most of the
players try to neutralize the scuffle.

Soon calmer heads prevailed. After a scary unpredictable minute, the head referee emerged
and called the game with two minutes remaining.
As Fort White emerged from the locker room they were instructed to go directly to the bus.
They did. By this time, extra police were called but the night proceeded without further incident.
Mostly scratches were reported for injuries. No medical aid was called.
Long faces spelled disappointment everywhere. It is likely that the Chiefland Indians will
shoulder the blame. The Fort White player was performing in front of his mother, who was
helping with the statistics of the game. His game was solid. There was no indication that an
eruption was imminent. It is unlikely he will be blamed for anything.
Principal Asbell of Chiefland High School said the following day that varsity basketball
activity is suspended until an evaluation and investigation of the facts is complete by the Florida
High School Athletic Association.
There will most likely be repercussions.


Journal Photo by Steve Jarboe.
The Red Devils set their defense to stop the comeback effort
by the Panthers.
an otherwise ho-hum game.
Were we going to watch another comeback by the Panthers?
Not this time.
The Red Devils came out to start the fourth and final quarter
with excellent basketball. The offense set up plays that ended
with baskets, and the defense played an aggressive half-court
defense.
After pulling back to a 12-point lead, the Red Devils
continued to play excellent basketball.
The Panthers could just not match up in this game to the Red
Devils. The Panthers were able to score the last four points of the
game to make the final score, Red Devils 59 and the Panthers 50.

Lady Red Devils Win Big on Senior Night


BY KATELYN GUINSLER
FOR THE JOURNAL

The Williston Lady Red Devils soccer team won their senior night soccer match against
the Bronson Lady Eagles 4-0. The Lady Red Devils came out ready to play as they jumped
on the Lady Eagles early in the match.
Before the kick-off, Williston honored four seniors with a short ceremony to acknowledge
their four years at Williston High School as well as being a part of the soccer team.
Cheyenne Williams was the first senior to be recognized as she stated, "My greatest
: accomplishment was to be on the soccer team." Senior Sarah Markham transferred from
: Texas which is how she received her nickname "Tex." Abigail Rodriguez was escorted by
Sher family. Aby played soccer all four years of high school and she doesn't want to stop
. now; she plans to play in college. Last but not least was Suzie Smith who has played on the
Steam for three years. She wishes the best for her teammates next year.
SThe seniors also shared the evening honoring their German exchange player Laura
,,Steinkamp, she is currently staying with the Livoni family and was escorted by her Nana
and sister Kylie.
The Lady Red Devils started off strong as they took the kick-off. Chelsea Wright booted
the ball up field to an open player. Bronson retrieved the ball but didn't have possession
long as Williston's Kayla Carnegie made the first shot of the game off the assist from Cecilia
Morales who made a perfect pass to Carnegie who made the goal, putting the Lady Red
Devils up 1-0 in the first five minutes of play.
It was not long before Williston scored again. This time Abby Rodriguez took a shot that
was deflected off the crossbar of the goal and fell into Carnegie's possession for an easy shot
on goal, making the score 2-0.
As Bronson kicked off, Williston cleared the ball up to Carnegie who had a one-on-one
run with the Bronson goalie. Carnegie kicked it to the right side, making another goal to
give the Lady Red Devils a 3-0 lead as the first half ended.
The second half started out with Bronson's kick-off, which took them to Williston's goal.
The Lady Eagles had several shots at the goal.
SThe Lady Red Devil goalie was challenged on back-to-back shots by the Lady Eagles that
Were defended away from the goal. Lucia Bernal was pushed back to defense and her play
helped keep the ball out of shooting range for the Lady Eagles. With five minutes left in the
match, the Lady Red Devils scored their fourth goal of the game as Kayla Carnegie kicked
,the ball up and over the goalie's head.
SCongratulations seniors, and good luck.
Just a special note for the Bronson Lady Eagles, who fielded their first soccer team in
school history. They had a great season and played hard in every match.
Also a special thank you to Angela Massa who was very active in getting the first-ever
,Bronson Lady Eagle Soccer team on the field.

SThe Lady Raiders jumped out early and held on in the
f"late stages of the game as the Lady Red Devils made a great
:effort to catch the Lady Raiders.
STonight it was just not to be, as the taller Lady Raiders
:'controlled the boards at both ends of the court, and at times
Sit appeared they were having rebound practice.
On many trips up the court on offense the Lady Raiders
,would get three, four and sometimes five rebounds to put

rebounds in the game.

The Lady Raiders also played two teams of five players in
a platoon system that wore down the Lady Red Devils. The
Lady Raiders wore them down but not out, as the Lady Red
Devils fought hard right till the final buzzer.
After jumping out to a 36-17 halftime lead the Lady
Raiders continued to dominate the boards, especially after
a missed shot. They would continue to put the ball back-up
until it would finally drop in the basket.
The Lady Raiders had some good shooters from behind
the three-point line as they dropped in seven three-point
baskets in the game.
Lady Red Devil freshmen Erica Mason, Ash's McDonald
and Kae'etta Jackson, along with junior Kim Dobbins,
played outstanding basketball for the Lady Red Devils.

The Lady Raiders extended their lead to start the fourth
and final quarter to 20 points at 56-36 with just over six
minutes remaining in the game.
This is,when the Lady Red Devils seemed to get their
second wind and it appeared the Lady Raiders were out of
gas. The Lady Red Devils made a run to pull to within 11
points as time ran out.
The 4A Lady Raiders behind a game-high 23-point
performance by Zenikia Patterson took a 69-58 win over the
Lady Red Devils.

Red Devils with 15 points, and Kim Dobbins had 14 points.

7 points.

Bronson Eagles Hold Football Awards Banquet


By STEVE JARBOE
Sports Editor
Monday evening the Bronson Eagles Middle School and High School varsity football
teams shared the school cafeteria for their 2007-08 Awards Banquet.
The middle school had a great season and finished their season with a 5-1 record. Coach
Greg Hamilton was proud of his team and his coaching staff. He was especially proud that
he had 47 players on this season's team.
Before passing out the team awards, Coach Hamilton thanked the parents for their support
through out the season.
The Middle School Awards were presented to the following players.
BEST OFFENSIVE LINEMAN Kenny King
BEST DEFENSIVE BACK Tavarias Thomas
BEST OFFENSIVE BACK Tommy Stacey
BEST DEFENSIVE LINEMAN Julian McDaniel
MOST IMPROVED PLAYER Brandon Allen
MOST VALUABLE GAME PLAYER A.J. Graham
The COACH'S AWARD went to quarterback Ben Landon. Landon threw 11 touchdown
passes in just six regular season games. Landon is also a recent Levy County Journal Student
Athlete of the Week and has a 4.0 grade point average in the classroom.
Then the program turned to the Eagles Varsity Football team awards.
The Bronson Varsity Football team placed three players on the All Area Team: Jermey
Mayes, Ben Giddens and Jeremiah Brown. They placed four players on the All Conference
Team. These players were Ben Giddens, Jermey Mayes, Jeremiah Brown and Jesse
Waybright.
There were nine awards passed out to a varsity team that will lose just four players to
graduation.
Pictured are the players and the award they received.
After the awards were passed out Coach Greg Brochetti thanked the large crowd for
coming and showing their support for Eagle Football.
As most of us know, Coach Brochetti has resigned the Head Coaching position and the
Eagles have completed their interviews for a new Varsity Eagles Head Coach.
I am sure we should hear something before to long on who the new Head Eagle Football
Coach will be.

83 Williston Middle School Starts New

Year Strong

90 BY ANGEL FLOYD
FOR THE JOURNAL
MS Lady Red Devils Win Big
96 The girls' and boys' basketball teams at Williston Middle School were pumped and ready to get
back to the sport after a long holiday winter break. Their athleticism and attitudes showed that they
99 wanted to get back to the competition and they were ready, as both teams reacted by running over
Dixie County's Ruth Rains Middle School teams.
The girls began their game coming out strong and playing aggressive defense to end the first
quarter leading Ruth Rains 12-0.
The Middle School Lady Red Devils were successful in keeping Ruth Rains tied up in the second
quarter as well, as they continued on their rampage scoring 13 more points while holding the Ruth
Rains Ladies to a single free throw, to take a 25-1 lead at half time.
Williston didn't spend much time in locker room. They came back out and continued to show
62 their speed and agility by not letting off their aggressive play. The Middle School Lady Red Devils
took a 33-4 lead as the third quarter ended.
The Middle School Lady Red Devils then put the clamp on the Ruth Rains ladies by not allowing
7 them a single point in the fourth and final quarter.
The Williston Middle School Lady Red Devils won the game 37-4 with a tremendous fourth
quarter shut-out.
Ericka Floyd led all scorers with 10 points, and Angie Wilcox contributed by adding 8 points.
83 MS Boys Remain Undefeated

The Williston Middle School boy's basketball team came out just as ready and fired up as the
90 Ladies were in their game against the Ruth Rains boys.
The Williston boys jumped out early and never looked back as they turned a 17-2 first quarter
lead into a 25-6 lead at the end of the first half.
The MS Red Devil boys did not go into the locker room for half time; instead they just took
96 practice shots during halftime.
MS Red Devil Detereon Ross started the third quarter by blocking the first three shot attempts by
99 the Ruth Rains team.
Coach Calvin Edwards began to empty the bench early in the third quarter playing every player
interchangeably.
The MS Red Devils held a 39-13 lead as the third quarter ended.
The fourth quarter saw more of the same as the MS Red Devils went on to win the game 52-20.
Detereon Ross and Damien Strange each had 18 points for the MS Red Devils.
Carl Jones finished with 13 points for the Ruth Rains team.

Chiefland City Commission
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE

Commissioners approve borrowing to
buy land for water supply
Commissioners on Monday approved borrowing money
from Perkins State Bank to buy land around the well where
the city gets its drinking water;
Perkins State Bank, the low bidder for the loan, will
provide $132,000 at 4.6 percent fixed interest and a $50 loan
fee. The money will be used to purchase 33 acres from the
Suwannee River Water Management District.
In December, commissioners were set to award a contract
for financing, but upon learning the Federal Reserve Board
was expected to lower the prime rate, they decided to hold
out for a lower bid. They saved about a quarter of a percent
on interest.
By owning the property, commissioners said they have
more security with the city's water supply and can expand
the supply to provide water for Fanning Springs and Trenton.

Buie Park gate to close at night
The large gate at Buie Park will now be locked at night
because of vandalism to park structures. The city has spent
about $5,000 replacing four doors, numerous locks, toilets
and other equipment damaged by vandals. City Manager
Grady Hartzog said as soon as the city approves the


ordinance, signs will be posed at the park and about ten days
later, the gate will be closed from sunset to sunrise. Similar
restrictions will be made at Strickland Park.

Chiefland students honored
Chiefland students Stacy Weber, Marcus McMohon
and Rebekka Wilkerson were honored by the Chiefland


Chiefland students Stacy Weber, left, and Rebekka
Wilkerson, right, receive their awards from Chiefland Mayor-
Commissioner Teal Pomeroy. Marcus McMohon is not
pictured.


Commission Monday as students of the month.
Stacy, a third grader, was nominated as a polite, well-
mannered, good-natured and well-rounded student. He is
noted for his kindness to adults and children. His social
and academic skills are excellent. He attends Chiefland
Elementary School.
Marcus, who is in eighth grade, is a conscientious and
hard-working student who foregoes recreational time for
academics. He is a dedicated athlete and plays football and
basketball at Chiefland Middle School. He gets along well
with others and works independently.
Rebekka, an 11th grade student at Chiefland High School,
is conscientious, responsible and dedicated. This A/B Honor
Roll student is active in FBLA, SGA and Beta Club. She is a
student in the Academy of Graphic Design and a member of
its advisory board.
Chiefland Mayor-Commissioner Teal Pomeroy presented
Stacy and Rebekka with plaques. Marcus did not attend.

Chiefland staff honored for longevity of
service
The Chiefland Commission recognized two staff
members Monday for their longevity with the city. Lamar
Tew completed 30 years with the city Jan. 9, and Mike
Beauchamp completed ten years Aug. 28, 2007. Each
received a plaque in recognition of his service.

during the time frame of 1999 and 2003.
On Jan. 9 the Levy County Sheriff's Office received
a 9-1-1 cal. The caller stated that they found Markham
unresponsive, in a shed behind the residence. Upon arrival
at the residence, Deputy Darrell Cothron and Fire Rescue
personnel attempted to revive Markham, to no avail. There
is no foul play suspected in Markham's death and he left
notes inside the shed of his innocence in this case. It is
believed that Markham died as a result of carbon monoxide
poisoning.

Using Civil Court to Resolve Residency Debate Commendable


January 7, 2008

Gary J. Holland, Esq.
Assistant General Counsel
Florida Department of State
500 So. Bronough Street
Tallahassee, Florida 32399

RE: Elections Fraud Complaint No. 07-21
FDLE Case GA-32-001

Dear Mr. Holland,
On September 27, 2007, you sent to my office reports
concerning the above investigation, which involves allegations
that eleven named individuals improperly voted in the August
7, 2007, City of Chiefland election when they were not legally
entitled to do0so. Please allow this letter to provide you with an
update as to the status of that matter, as you requested.
To begin with, I.concur with the opinions in those reports
concerning the subjective nature of the law as it governs the
definition of "residency" for voting purposes. There is no clear or
consistent definition in statute, case law or rule that I can locate
that would provide an easy legal answer to the question of exactly
what constitutes a legal residence for voting purposes. While one
might assume that the nature of residency for voting purposes was
easily determined, this lack of any clear legal definition makes
the opposite the case. Why the legislature or the courts have not
over the history of our state more specifically addressed this is
both unknown and irrelevant; the reality is that this investigation
must be resolved with virtually no legal guidance upon which I
or anyone else can conclusively rely. I say this because while
the facts and circumstances applying to each person named in the
investigation are largely indisputable, what those facts mean under
the law is anything but obvious.
It is equally important to note several other general factors.
First, criminal statutes must be strictly construed and interpreted to
resolve doubt in favor of a person who is alleged to have violated
them. I believe this to be especially important when the alleged
j violation touches on a fundamental right such as voting. It is also
important to note that for the most part the applicable sections
implicated under Chapter 104 include a requirement that any
violation must be knowing, willful, or both in nature.
Within that context, let me next address some specific
background that I believe is important as well. First, several if not
all of the individuals alleged to have improperly voted in August
of 2007 have been doing exactly what is now complained of with
regard to the most recent Chiefland municipal election'for many
years. Their so doing has hardly been a secret, yet they have never
been stopped from voting by any elections official, starting from
the Supervisor of Elections and going through individual poll
workers when voting has been in person or other officials who
issue or count. absentee ballots when that method of voting has
been used. The Supervisor of Elections has no statutory authority


to have done so or to enforce anything, and there are indications
that some or all of these persons have been questioned on occasion
about their residency and whether it entitled them to vote in city
elections, but there has been no follow-up or action from those
questions to definitively tell these individuals that they could not
vote. To the contrary, some of these persons have apparently been
told over the years that they could vote in city elections regardless
of where they were living based on other factors. To my
knowledge, no challenge to any of their votes has ever been timely
made, the provisional ballot process has never been invoked,
and no contest of election has ever resulted. Perhaps even more
telling, when similar issues were raised in 2002 an investigation
was initiated by FDLE but apparently closed with no action, either
by a referral to my office for possible review or prosecution or, to
the best of my knowledge, any direction to those alleged to have
been improperly voting that they must stop doing so. This lack of
any action when the issue has been long standing and well known
on a local level is tantamount to government approval and serves
to make it virtually impossible in my mind to say that anyone has
now acted with the requisite knowing and willful intent to violate
the law.
Therefore, for the reasons that the law does not clearly define
what "residency" means for voting purposes and that there is
insufficient proof that anyone named in the investigation has
knowingly or willfully violated the law, I am at this time declining
prosecution. This is, however, not the end of the matter, because
unless something is done to address the fundamental question of
entitlement to vote then the problem will simply repeat itself with
every future city election in Chiefland. Since no one else has done
so over the years, I have therefore decided that I will take certain
actions intended to correct this problem.
First, from among the eleven individuals named in the FDLE
reports, there are three who in my mind have no arguable claim
to residency such as would entitle them under any interpretation
to continue to vote in City of Chiefland elections. While these
three individuals are not being prosecuted at this time because
of the reasons outlined above, they have all been advised by my
office that they are not in niy view qualified City of Chiefland
electors and that if they were to vote in city elections in the future
they would, absent some change in circumstance, be subject to
prosecution since they are now on notice of what I believe to be
their lack of qualification to do so. All three have voluntarily
agreed to change their registration to correct this situation.
Second, three individuals have been identified whose residency
at the time of the August 2007 city election did appear to meet
the requirements of law but who may change that residency prior
to the next city election. These individuals have all been advised
of the necessity of addressing any change of residency that might
occur with the Supervisor of Elections, and are also now on
notice that future voting in city elections could subject them to
prosecution, again depending on then existing circumstances.
Finally, the remaining five individuals all assert a legally
debatable basis for city residency. Whether they are correct or


not requires court resolution since, as noted above, there is no
clear legal precedent to be applied. One of these individuals, Andy
Andrews, has agreed to seek a legal resolution of the definition
of residency and entitlement to vote in Chiefland elections in
the future, asserting the various grounds upon which residency
might be determined. This will be accomplished by the filing of
a declaratory judgment action in Levy County seeking a court
ruling on the question, and that ruling, whatever it might be, will
serve to answer the question of residency in a fashion that will
be applicable to all those persons who fall within this category.
This civil action will be initiated at his expense and will avoid
the criminal courts needlessly being involved. All parties agree
to be bound by the results of this suit. Although such actions are
customarily resolved more quickly than might be the case with
other litigation, all parties have also agreed not to vote in any city
election that might occur while the matter is pending.
This is to me an important process for several reasons. First of
all, it will ultimately provide a legal definition of "residency" that
we currently lack. That definition, however the court may frame it,
will be applicable not only to the individuals specifically involved
but also to others who may find themselves similarly situated in
the future. Second, it will resolve the current dispute as to these
individuals once and for all. These six persons all have legitimate
and long standing interests in the City of Chiefland and I have no
question as to the sincerity of their motives. Utilizing the civil
legal system to resolve this debate is not only appropriate but also
commendable. Finally, it would be naive for any of us to think
that the eleven persons named in the FDLE investigation are the
only ones among the thousands of voters registered in Chiefland
who could be affected by this, and whatever ruling may result will
ultimately be of assistance to elections officials there and, for that
matter, anyplace where similar disputes about the entitlement to
vote might arise.
I will, of course, monitor the course of the declaratory judgment
action, which I have been assured by the attorney preparing it will
be filed shortly. As mentioned, through this process those whose
entitlement to vote has been questioned have been told for the
first time with certainty whatever is applicable to their situation.
The missing "knowingly and willfully" element that prevents
prosecution now will not exist in the future, at least as to them.
It is my expectation that through this combination of actions, we
will have addressed a problem that has gone un-addrdssed for too
long. Regardless of whether a court ultimately rules that residency
for voting purposes is, as I believe it to be, where one lays one '
head at night or whether it is something more akin to home being
where the heart is as evidenced by a variety of other factors, we
will through this process at least have some firm guidance for the
future.

Sincerely,

William P. Cervone
State Attorney

forgot," CHS Principal Pamela Asbell said.
Chiefland police responded immediately to the situation.
A combination of surveillance technology and reports from the student-run Varsity Patrol
led authorities to a quick resolution. Within an hour, officers had located the responsible
student and received a confession.
"The city police were efficient, professional and timely," said Turnipseed. "And our
school's Youth Crime Watch was instrumental in solving this case."
As a part of the YCW Varsity Patrol, two students tour the school buildings at all times.
Equipped with two-way radios and clipboards, students document each place visited,
reporting any unusual activity. "More than 50 percent of the student population is part of
the Youth Crime Watch," Assistant Principal Carol Benge said. "CMS students take pride
in their school," she said, adding that each student pays dues to participate in the YCW
organization.
Recently installed security cameras informed authorities
which students had entered the restroom during the timeline
established by Varsity Patrol reports.
The hallway cameras are linked to the administrators'
computers where they can access live feed or play back past
events. From skipping class to bullying to bomb threats, "the
cameras have practical applications across the spectrum," / ,
Benge said.
The cameras narrowed the search to two female students.
After obtaining handwriting samples, police interviewed a
suspect, who promptly confessed.
Police determined that the bomb threat was a hoax.
Upon further investigation, officers implemented the Baker N MIDDLE SCHOOl
Act in order for the 11-year-old suspect, whose name has not
been released, to receive a mental health evaluation.
No criminal charges were filed and disciplinary measures Photo by Kellie Parkin.

Department.
"I think they did everything they could have done," said Janet Hammond, parent of a CMS
seventh grader. "But it's too bad. Ten years ago, it would not have gone that far."
Rebecca Schlosser, whose child also attends CMS, said she is impressed with the
administration's security procedures and the way they have handled past incidents. "I feel
very safe with [my child] being here."

Miss Honey Says...
Hi ya'll,
Here I sit with pen and pad missing Jim and
Dear Old Dad, the two best friends I ever had.
Jesus called they had to go. We'll meet again pne day I know.
Life is short and filled with pain and we can't see the sunshine
through the rain. But, when this life on earth is through we'll
meet again, beyond the blue.
Well today has been one of those lonely days. A tear jerker
you might say, but I will survive by the grace of God and his
love. Oh where would I be without Jesus? Did you know he
takes care of his own? And I am one of His.
Kathy and Bob gave me this little female dog, very tiny and
sweet, and I really love her and I also thank them for caring
and giving her to me. She stays in the recliner with me and
she rides beside me in the car. She is a little doll, so I named
her Baby Doll.
Well since I am late writing this I better shut up and take
this to the Journal. So until next week I'll say God bless each
of you and I'll try and do better next week.
Take Care and God Bless
So says
Miss Honey








Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs., Jan. 10 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Quilting goes on the quilts we
have in now. Both are Log Cabins and how good it is to
have Elvena Davidson and Dorothy Reggs who come
each year and quilt. We welcome them home for a few
months.
How good it was to have Goldie back from Ocala
where she was visiting her daughter Pat. Welcome home
Goldie, we did miss you.
What a great day we had last Saturday with our Pickin'
on the Porch. We did have it inside as the weather was
a little chilly and we didn't.want anyone to get sick. We
will have it in February and March, maybe by then we
can get others to come out and play. We have these the
first Saturday of each month.
We want to wish Doris Beauchamp a happy birthday.
As we all get older we are thankful for all of our days
and look forward to more.
Derick and seven boys were out Wednesday and got so
much done. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch today was so good; stir fry, cheese and

Impact Fee
CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE


that it would not be possible. If there is no growth for three
years, the ordinance will have to be rewritten by the BoCC
and will have to be enacted again. Even at a 70% discount,
Tony Parker stated, "I will not vote for the ordinance if
growth was like it is now." All members of the BoCC
agreed.
School Board Superintendent Cliff Norris asked that
maybe the County Commissioners would like to reimburse
the school board for part of the taxpayers' $35,000 that was
used to pay for the survey. If the study has to be redone, it
will be after the 2010 census. That means three years of not
having enough money for the students and the burden the
new population will put on the school system. Norris also
expressed his concern by stating, "Growth will come, it
may be slow now, but it won't always be slow." The county
schools are full and when new students move into the area,
the schools have to accept them; they do not have a choice.
BoCC Chairman Sammy Yearty then made a motion to
adopt the ordinance. No second followed.
Rather than have thetaxpayers lose the $35,000 survey
expense, it was suggested that the BoCC pass the ordinance
with more of a discount, less dollars, for now. The issue of
funds can be address every October and it can change as
growth changes. The SBLC agreed to increase the impact
fee discount to 80% of the suggested amount of $4,083.
For the third time, Sammy Yearty motioned for the
ordinance to be adopted as is, except with a discounted rate
of 80%. Stevens seconded the motion, and the ordinance
was adopted. Ninety days after the effective date of this -
ordinance, all residential construction occurring within Levy
County, unincorporated areas and within the municipal
boundaries of the cities shall pay the following Educational
System Impact Fee prior to the issuance of a Building
Permit.
Single-family Detached house $816.00
Multi-family Dwelling Unit $416.00
Mobile Home $637.00
At least 90 days prior to October 1 of each year, the board
will adopt an Annual Educational System Impact Fee Index
Ordinance that will determine the amount of the impact fees.
The fees collected by the county or by a permitting city will
be deposited quarterly to the school board. The impact fee
is additional to all other fees and charges or assessments
due for the issuance of a building permit. If the fee is paid
prior to the issuance of the building permit and the permit
expires prior to completion of the construction project, the
fee can be refunded with an application. Refunds can also
be obtained if the funds collected were not expended prior
to the end of the fiscal year following the eighth anniversary
of the date upon which the fee was paid. The SBLC will
prepare an annual report to reflect the expenditures of the
impact fees during the previous year;
The impact fees will be deposited into a separate trust
account and maintained by the SBLC. Monies deposited
will be used solely for the purpose of providing growth-
necessitated capital improvements to educational plants and
ancillary plants of the education system including, but not
limited to: land acquisition, including the cost of acquisition;
professional services such as architecture, engineering,
surveying, landscaping, soil and material testing, legal,
appraisals and construction management; design and

education plants and ancillary plants, drainage facilities;
furniture and equipment necessary to accommodate students,
faculty, administrators, staff and education programs;
school buses for transportation of students; repayment of
monies borrowed; and developing cost of implementing and
updating the Impact Fee study. Money deposited will also
be used to provide capital improvements to the Education
system as necessitated by growth and shall not be used for
any expenditure that would be classified as a maintenance or
repair expense.
Exemption for the impact fees are: expansion or alterations
to existing dwelling units where no other unit is created;
replacement or construction of accessory building or
structures; tie-down permits for mobile homes which
have already paid an impact fee when home was situated;
government-owned residential construction; housing for
older persons and residential construction that qualifies as
affordable housing.
No one likes to pay more taxes and fees but our school
system will need funds as the county grows in population.
School board member Paige Brookins commented, "The state
gives funds for the 'need at the time,' it does not give funds
for future growth. This impact fee is a revenue source for
future growth. This is a proactive approach for future needs."

to visit with others, and of
course I am only a phone call
