School Board of Levy County

Approves Electronic Bid Process

BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County School Board voted to authorize use of the electronic bidding service
company BidBridge.
Prior to the board's vote, Jim Taylor of BidBridge explained his company's service as a
new bidding process that functions as a "reverse auction" that would "help this county save
money."
Taylor said the process was opposite of what happens on E-bay where one product has
multiple buyers and thus the price rises. When multiple vendors compete to supply a needed
product, the price falls, said Taylor.
Electronic bidding lets vendors bid in real time to provide the needed product. As
vendors place their bid, all they can see on the computer screen is what order their bid came
in. Then they can lower their price to compete for the contract.
BidBridge charges the lowest bidder 3 percent of the contract price. The typical bid
auction takes place in 30 to 90 minutes, said Taylor.
"This procedure could save us money," Superintendent Cliff Norris stated. "We're
getting ready to make a big tech purchase, 450-500 new computers," he said.
The School Board voted unanimously to authorize usage of the electronic bid service.
SBLC is under no obligation and will continue to use the traditional bid method for some
projects but now has the option of utilizing the electronic reverse auction when deemed
appropriate.

Financial Issues Top Agenda for

Bronson Council
BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER

Financial issues topped the agenda at the Town of Bronson Council meeting Monday
night. Items of importance included excessive utility charges, monies spent without the
council's vote, and money to be spent for park upgrades.
After receiving an almost $11,000 water and sewer bill, the Levy County Jail will
disconnect from the town's sewer system. "On Friday.we will go back to our own system,"
said Major Johnson of the LCSO.
The jail currently budgets $2400 a month for such services and cannot see the viability
of staying connected to the town's system at five times the cost. "We don't mind paying our
fair share, but we don't want to pay for it all," Maj. Johnson said.
He added that eventually the jail may consider a re-hookup if the council is able to
provide a mutually satisfactory solution for both parties.
Berlon Weeks addressed fellow council members regarding the Jackson-House. He
inquired as to why the town has spent roughly $250,000 on renovations, but has yet to vote
on a single expense. "How did we spend a quarter of a million dollars and not vote on it,"
he asked.

Built in 1876, the historic James M. Jackson Jr. house
was donated to the Town of Bronson in 1998 by Perkins
State Bank. The town initially planned to turn the home into
a recreational facility. Because it is not designed for such
use, consideration is now being given to the possibility of
relocating town hall to the Jackson house.
No resolution was made and the Jackson House will
continue to be a topic of interest in future town meetings.
In their final decision of the evening, the council agreed
to spend approximately $46,000 to upgrade the electrical
system at the town park. This will benefit the upcoming
Humane Society Chili Cook-off and Concert to be held in
late February, and will make it possible to accommodate
future events as well.

Council Publicly Chastised,

Fire Chief Resigns then

Reconsiders

BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER

Members of the Town of Bronson Council received public ridicule Monday night when
former councilmember Edith Brown chastised them for their lack of order, rule-following,
and decision-making.
"You're making a mess of this city," Brown stated to the council at their monthly
meeting Feb. 5. She described the order of the town council as a "media circus,' and advised
them that based on calls she has received from Tallahassee, the town is "this close to having
the charter pulled." Brown offered no evidence to substantiate the claim.
Brown focused on the group as well as indiv idual council members. "You have a gavel.
You have the authority to shut up people. Use it," she said to Mayor Franklin Schuler.
Brown repeatedly invoked her 27 years experience on the Bronson Council to support
her allegations and advice. "Do you know what I did my first year on the council?" she
asked newest member Berlon Weeks. "I kept my mouth shut," she said..
Brown also claimed the council had broken Florida Sunshine Laws that regulate
private communication regarding government business between members. Councilmember
Melody LaFlam countered that no such occurrence took place and that the council is aware
of past meeting minutes that convey such misconceptions. "The minutes incorrectly implied
that a private meeting happened. It did not," she said.
Brown acknowledged the possibility of poorly recorded minutes and moved on to
address other perceived missteps made by the council. "You pulled an engineer out of the
audience and hired him. You can't do that," she said.
Councilmember Berlon Weeks clarified the council's actions. Following proper
procedure, "we placed an ad in the paper... Mr. Dubari was the only one to apply," he said.,
The Fire Department featured prominently in Brown's list of grievances. "You have a
Fire Chief that lives outside city limits that goes against your charter," she said. "And you
gave him permission to purchase a truck without any guidelines."
Councilmember Melody LaFlam referenced an exception for town employees to live
outside city limits. "We have an ordinance in place that allows for this, and it includes the
Fire Chief," she stated.
An investigation into prior meetings confirmed Laflam's assertions. According to
the minutes from the June 7, 2004 Bronson Council meeting, it was then-councilmember
Edith Brown herself who made the motion to initiate the ordinance change process to
allow employees and volunteer firemen to reside outside city limits. Councilmember
Aaron Edmondson seconded Brown's motion. These minutes are available online at www.
townofbronson.com.
LaFlam also refuted any impropriety regarding the truck acquisition. "The truck was
purchased properly." Before the purchase was made, Lombardo outlined in detail the
options and financial obligations involved for the council.
Brown moved on, stating the critical need to commence the next phase in the town's
sewage system. "Bite the bullet," she advised the council, "even if it means borrowing a
bunch of money. Put in Phase II... Stop having task forces and committees that accomplish
nothing and make the tough decisions."
As she took her seat, Brown concluded, "You can talk it to death, but ain't nothing
getting done."
Vice-Mayor Beatrice Mongo reacted to Brown's comments, stating, "I feel like I've
just been chastised by my mother."
After the harangue, Brown disrupted the proceedings by "cracking jokes," according
to a man seated next to her. At one point, the town attorney, Steven Warm, asked if he had
unintentionally made a joke. "No sir," the unidentified man said. After the meeting, the man
confided "she's a hoot, I couldn't stop laughing."
Bronson Fire Chief Rick Lombardo began his monthly report to the council by
addressing Brown's accusations. He said he was solicited by members of the current
council and that they were fully aware of his place of residence. "I've done everything I
could to grow this department and it has grown for two years," he said.
Regarding the newly purchased truck, Lombardo stated, "I bought the truck because it
is the job of the Fire Chief to make sure the department has the equipment it needs." At that
time, "No one said anything to the contrary," he said.
Lombardo concluded his comments with his immediate resignation. "As of tonight, I
resign," he said. He left the meeting before any additional comments could be obtained.
The following day, after an outpour of public response asking him to reconsider,
Lombardo expressed plans to rescind his resignation and spoke of his determination to
follow through with improving the Fire Department. "I've had time to think about it, and
I've decided to stay," he said in a telephone interview Tuesday. Lombardo spoke with
pride regarding his time with the department. "We've never been over budget, and we've
followed every procedure properly,"

Mn BUT ANYWAY


I uy E.Sheffield

There was a whole passel of sour
looking fellows in the room that night,
looking like deer caught in the headlights.
Even Pastor wore a plastic smile, and he
was the one who'd recommended this
twelve session marriage building seminar.
The class began innocently enough, with some little
teaching about how we're to love our spouses and all. I kept
from nodding off through most of it, but then, to my horror,
they announced we'd end each night's session with some
sappy little share-fest. Oh brother! How in the world had I let
my wife talk me into this?
Thankfully we fellows weren't the only ones suffering. I
noticed several wives taking light jabs-to the ribs for spouting
off during their confession session. When it came my turn I
managed to grunt something to the effect of, "Yeah, ahh...

Well, ahh... Sure, I'm for all that stuff. I guess."
I did good compared to some of the other fellows. One big
guy named Jim was brutally honest. "I don't have anything to
say," he croaked in a voice low enough to trigger a tsunami.
Then he folded his arms and nodded to the poor sucker who
was next. "Now that's worth the price of admission," I giggled
under my breath.
After a couple of weeks people began to loosen up. I mean
really loosen up. They were shedding their steeple people
exteriors left and right. I'll be honest; I was getting a little
nervous. What ifAngie disregarded my warnings and told off
on me?
Eventually, I must admit, I could no longer deny the
teaching was helpful, even if it was causing Angie and me to
argue all the way home. I was even enjoying my turn during
the snitch-fest at the end. Most of all I was reveling in the fact
that Angie and I weren't the only couple at the church who
still had a few issues to iron out.
Maybe that's what finally helped old Jim to break his
silence. One night, out of the blue, he uncrossed his arms and
spoke a couple of sentences. Okay, so it was only an angry
response to one of his wife's earlier accusations, but it was a
start. The next week he did it again. Too bad it was our last
regular class. Jim might have accidentally opened up pretty
soon.
For the final night they planned a fancy marriage vows
renewal shindig. They asked each of us to invite as many
people as we could and prepare a few words to say about

what we had learned in class. I was nervous for a week. I
could only imagine how Jim felt.
When that night arrived we all got married again. That
was easy. Waiting for our turn to speak was the tough part.
Everyone did fine though, saying wonderful things about the
program, eloquently trying to persuade their family members
to get some help too. We all held our breath when Jim was
called to the podium.
I couldn't believe it. The big fellow lumbered up and
snatched that microphone off the stand like he had been
waiting for this moment all of his life. I don't recall all of
what he said over the next ten minutes, but it starting with,
"I came into the class thinking I was the only one who had
problems..." By the time he finished preaching, family
members were practically climbing over each other to get
back to the sign up sheet.
It certainly was a night to remember, and one that helps me
realize why I'm often so open and transparent in these stories.
I believe people need to know Christians suffer the same
temptations, trials, and hardships as everyone else. We often
sin like everyone else too, despite having all of God's help.
Yes, we all fall short of God's glory. One of the biggest ways
is when we try to pretend we are holier than thou.
Christians are not superior people. We're just plain folks
who finally got honest enough with ourselves to recognize our
need for help, and accepted God's invitation to hide ourselves
in Christ when He called.
God is calling you today. Why don't you climb into the
ark and be saved with us? Ask Jesus to be your Lord. For
everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious
standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that
we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when He
freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented
Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God
when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His
blood... Romans 3:23-25 NLT
But Anyway Big Jim is one of my best friends at church
now, though I can hardly get a word in edgewise around him.
He's also one of the most devout Christian men I know, and he's
real. That class really helped him come out of his shell. I guess he
just needed to know we Christians are all in the same boat.

Grants Awarded

BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
Teachers Marcia Smith of Bronson Middle High and
Lida Weingardt of Chiefland High were presented with
$1,000 grants from the Levy Soil and Water Conservation
District.
Chairman Tommy Harper was on hand to explain
the inaugural awards and to encourage more teacher
participation. "God told all of us we're responsible for our
en\ ironment." he said.
The monetarN awards are meant to fund projects that
address water and erosion issues so that students can learn
"hands-on conservation," according to Harper. "We'v e
always had that desire in our hearts to reach out to the next
generation." he said.
The two grants were the first of many to come. "This
will be the first seed planted," said Harper. "We've got,
more money folks, we just need to have teachers step up."
In an interview after the presentation. Marcia Smith said
that she would use the grant to teach students about erosion
and soil preservation. Currently, the BHS greenhouse is
surrounded by sand that is constantly blown away and
eroded by rains. "We'll bring in top soil and spread it
around the greenhouse and then plant sod," Smith said.

need for community participation in order to find solutions.
"You can't create a broad community plan without broad
,dommnunity inv61ovemeit," Feller said&
The group highlighted the many strengths within the
county including health department programs, 911 services
and emergency notification system, food centers and
"Meals-on-Wheels," and access to Hospice care and a
hospital. Plans for a new hospital in Chiefland are currently
underway.
The need for specialized medical care to be available
locally was strongly voiced by the residents in attendance.
Currently, many residents have to cross county lines for
services such as dialysis and mental-health care.
There was a group consensus regarding the lack of public
awareness of current health-related services in the county
such as tobacco-cessation classes, fitness programs, and
family planning assistance.
The alarming teen pregnancy rate and lack of health-
related education are major obstacles threatening the
community.
Opportunities for educational growth within the county
may be possible by joining forces 'with the faith-community,
residents and officials concluded, Area churches currently
assist residents with medical services needs and they could
be a valuable resource in helping to spread public awareness
regarding many issues and programs.
The biggest threat to the community is the possibility of
no follow through after this meeting, said one resident. That
comment was followed by general agreement among other
attendees.
Director Locke stated that meeting notes would be sent
to all participants as well as a notice of time and place for
the next meeting. The next step will be to appoint specific
committees for a task force to develop a strategic plan for
improving healthcare accessibility in Levy County.

A Billion the True Story,

About a Billion Dollars
This is too true to be very funny. The next time you
hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual
manner, think about whether you want the politicians
spending
YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one
advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure
into some perspective in one of its releases.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on
two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20
minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a
took at New Orleans. It's amazing what you can learn
with some simple division.
Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu (D) is presently
asking the Congress for $250 BILLION to rebuild New
Orleans. Interesting number. What does it mean?
A. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of New
Orleans (every man, woman, child), you each get
$516,528.
B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New

young Lady Red Devils will
grow up quickly and early.
The coach certainly did not change his scheduling of non-district opponents. He
scheduled plenty of 4A and 5A teams to play.
"Our goal is to continue to improve with every game. Our youth will never be an excuse
for poor play. We expect to get into the district playoffs and win and move on."
There are some very talented young ladies on this team with loads of softball
experience. They can go as far as they want to go this season. They are hoping it will be a
trip back to Plant City.
It certainly helps when one of the returning seniors is Margaret Brown. who last season
led the district 3A conference in batting and was named to the district 3A All State First
Team as a junior. The other senior is Heather Porter who took over the pitching duties for
the Lady Red Devils last season and did a remarkable job.
This year Porter will be joined by three freshman pitchers that some consider to be the
three best softball pitchers in the area.
Best of all. when these four young ladies are not on the mound, they are all tremendous
athletes who play other positions.
Coach P feels his Lady Red Devils will be solid at every position, complemented with
a very good pitching staff.
He said his Lady Red Devils .: I

five-point margin until midway in the second period. After
a lull, when both teams were cold from the field, the Rams
scored twice in succession and pulled within one point at
the half, 18 to 19.
Cantrell Richardson continued his leadership role with
the team by scoring twice to bring the Indians back to a
more comfortable five-point lead. It was 22 to 27 Indians
favor, at the half.
During the third quarter, the Indians went on the three-
point warpath led again by C'antrell Richardson. He single
handedly stole the ball and scored. Next he drained a three-
point shot. He was able to build a cushion so that the rest of
the team felt comfortable risking three-point shots as well.
Then the fireworks went off. Swish. Swish. The home
crowd erupted with cheers, as suddenly the Indians could
not miss.
This was really a team win. Seniors Casey Brown and
Delmar Dial were in top form. They were recognized along
with the senior cheer leaders before the game.
The Indians held on to the big lead and cruised to victory.
The Rams from Interlachen managed to win the junior

BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
The Williston Lady Red Devils after earning a first round bye in the district play offs, advanced
to the championship game on Saturday night by downing the Newberry Lady Panthers with ease.
The Lady Panthers, hosting the play offs, came out with an aggressive style defense and got
into foul trouble early and often. The Lady Red Devils were ill the bonus midway through the first
quarter.
The Lady Red Devils took quick advantage from the foul line to take a 17-10 lead in the first
quarter making 9 of 10 free throws.
The teams played even in the second quarter and the score was 34-27 at the half with the Lady
Red Devils continuing to lead.
As the second half got underway it was the Lady Red Devils picking up their defense and
turning the Lady Panthers turnovers into points. I
As they have all season long the Lady Red Devils came out strong to start the second half and
out scored the Lady Panthers 18-12 to widen their lead going into the fourth and final quarter.
Lady Panther Chelsea Hall kept the Lady Panthers in the game with several three-point baskets
in the third quarter.
The Lady Red Devils began .

The score at the end of the first quarter was 32-0. At the end of the first half the score was 46-4.

The Blue Wave went on to win the game 67-18, advancing to the championship game in district

However in this game unlike other games the Blue Wave played this season, the bench was

Lady Blue Wave Wins District 5

Championship, Again

BY STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR .

It was no blow out this time around as the PK Yonge Lady Blue Wave faced off against
the Williston Lady Red Devils for the 3A District 5 Championship.
Although it was the Blue Wave's third straight district championship and seventh out of the last
eight, the Lady Red Devils played a very good game.
In the first two contests this season the young, very young Lady Red Devils seemed to be
intimidated by the size and excellent ball handling of the Lady Blue Wave players. These young
ladies just do npt make mistakes with the basketball.
But, in this game Red Devils Head Coach Jason Odom, would not let his ladies back down.
"Stand in there and do not
back down" was Odom's
message hollered out to
his'team through out the
game. His Lady Red Devils
responded, but like the other
teams in the district for the
last 5 years or longer, they
were just over matched by
what appears year after year
ato be: an all-star team in the
.-""' district against every other
X,", district team.
hIf the Lady Red Devils had
been a little more accurate
'., from the free throw lane, and

pulling down a rebound. fouled have fell in the basket,
the first half might have been
a little closer than the, 38-20 score. The Lady Red Devils left twelve points at the free throw line in
the first half.
As it was, the Lady Blue Wave lost one of their starting players at the 4 minute mark of the
second quarter.
After having a technical foul called against her in the first quarter for saying something to the
official following a personal foul call, the young lady said something to yet another official after
having another personal foul called on her. She said something while the teams were lining up at
the free throw line to the official and was tagged with her second technical foul and disqualified,
from the game. She will also face disqualification from the Blue Waves next game against
Keystone Heights in the regional quarterfinals.
The Blue Wave Head Coach Willy Powers, said after the game he didn't know what she said to
the official the first time, and that she must have disagreed with their calls the second time.
The Lady Red Devils were down by 33 points to start the fourth and final quarter at 62-29.
The Lady Red Devils came back to out score the Lady Blue Wave 16-3 in the fourth quarter as
the last reserve players were inserted in the game.
The final score of the game was 65-45 in favor of the Blue Wave.
I believe this was as close as any district team came all season to the Blue Wave.
The Blue Wave will host a regional quarterfinal game next week which is their ninth
quarterfinal appearance in the last ten years.
The Lady Red Devils will travel to Union County in their regional quarterfinal game.
This is the first regional quarterfinal appearance for the Lady Red Devils in 4 years, and they
did it with Williston young ladies.
The Lady Red Devils Head Coach Jason Odom set his team goals before the season began.
Odom wanted his extremely. young team to make thetlay-offs and then take it one game at a time.

Chiefland Indians-Play Close Against Mayo
f:BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
The Lafayette Hornets
plaN ed an exciting back and
forth basketball game with the
Indians in Chiefland. At the
end of the game the Hornets
were on a cycle that had them
ahead in a close game 64 to 59.
The Hornets from Mayo also .
Swon the junior varsity game 59 .
to 32.i
In retrospect, the only big
mistake the Indians made
was letting the Hornets get
eight points ahead in the first
quarter.
The Indians worked their,
way back during the second i
quarter with good team work./
They almost managed to even
the score at the half, 30 to 27.
The third period was \
back and forth again. Every "
possession counted and every
shot was critical.
Cantrell Richardson sank a
three pointer, nothing but net,
and put the Indians ahead late


. in the fourth period. The loyal
Chiefland fans went wild with
expectation.
The Hornets continued to
work as a team led by Eric
Maclntyre who had 18 points Journal photo by David Leach
and Jonathan Sellers who had Cantrell Richardson and Tommy Sheffield go for the ball.
23 points.
With only one minute and thirteen seconds left in the contest the score was'tied 59 to 59.
Lafayette County scored the next field goal and forced the Indians to foul in order to stop the
clock. The Hornets kept their composure and made the timely foul shots to increase their lead. The
Indians needed to score twice as time ran out.
Cantrell Richardson led scoring for the Indians, again, with 21 points. He demonstrated his skill
and determination with spectacular leaps to deflect long cross-court passes and score. Marquis
Jackson was productive with 11 points. Surprisingly he was able to out rebound the opposition that
was head and shoulders taller. Eugene Carter chipped in with 10 points. He collected and scored
bounds under the basket and was effective in bringing tlh ball up court.

Bronson Youth League Basketball Banquet


BY KELLIE PARKING
FOR THE JOURNAL


The Bronson Youth League celebrated the start of
their inaugural basketball season Friday night with a
family dinner at First Baptist Church of Bronson.
BYL president Garry Mitchell recognized
community leaders for their support in starting the
new basketball program. Bronson Mayor Franklin
Schuler, Town Clerk Donna Conquest, and Public
Works Director Jimmy Dunford were honored with
certificates of appreciation.
"Their diligence and support made this a reality for
all of us," Mitchell said.
BYL added basketball in January and has fifty
children ages 4-15 participating. The season lasts
approximately seven weeks and will run through the
end of February.
The new addition complements BYL's other sports
programs that include soccer, softball, baseball,
football, and cheerleading. Currently, the league is
exploring the option of adding archery as well.
The Basketball Family dinner night is just the
beginning, according to Mitchell. Every sport will have
one each season from this point forward. "We want to
build unity among the families and teams," he said.

Williston Controls


Bronson 62-48 at


Home


BY DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL
In a calculated move,
the Williston Red Devils
fielded enough fire power
to beat the Bronson
Eagles at home in varsity
basketball. Coach Dave
Vespigania for Williston
started two freshmen, two
sophomores and a senior.
He rested power forward
C.J.James for the district
playoffs. Once Williston
got warmed up, they held
the lead through out the
game.
The Bronson High Journal photo by David Leach
School gym filled to near Both teams look for position under the basket
capacity, as the junior
varsity from Williston won 63 to 54.
Before the varsity game the Bronson Eagle seniors were recognized. Wilberto
Encarnanion, Joseph Sparrow, Terrance Dukes, Jeremy Mayes and Dion Thomas were
presented to the packed crowd, as well as the senior cheer leaders.
The Bronson Eagles jumped out to and early lead, 6 to 12. The Williston Red
Devils responded with three 3 pointers of theirs own, the two steals followed by scores
to open up a 25 to 14 lead. The Eagles responded to keep the game within reach by
coming back with a scoring flurry of their own. The score was 29 to 23 at the half.
Williston opened a ten point lead during the third period. Sharp crisp passing and
team work gave the impression that the Red Devils were in control. The Red Devils
Deonte Welch was able to score at will. He wound up with thirteen points but that was
only part of the story. He was a factor at both ends of the court. His performance was
complemented by Devin Thomas who also had 13 points; Kelcey Coleman had 12
points, and Isacc Floyd who had 11 points.
Welch treated the crowd to a dunk shot, after the outcome was not longer in doubt,
to punctuate the win for Williston.
The Bronson Eagles were never able to reorganize to challenge for the lead. The ten
point cushion they maintained throughout the second half increased at the very end of
the game.
Kelby Barber was high scorer for the Eagles with 14 points and James Rivers had
12 points.

Bronson Youth League Asks for Mutual


Cooperation
B, KELLIF P-4, .lrI
ST-FF VWFIT
[he Bronson Youth League has been unable to reach an
agreement with the School Board of Le\' CounLt to use
the old Bronson High School g) mnasium for basketball
practices
Hilltop Alternati e School currently resides in the former
Bronson High School facilities. As part of the alternative
school police the school does not allo'\ extra-curricular
acti\ cities such as clubs or sports. Therefore, the gym is
general\ used onl\ as an olerflo\w facility to accommodate
BHS sports teams
SBLC maintains that police. requires a minimum $50
rental fee for each use, a fee that BYL is unable to pa\ this
inaugural basketball season due to program start-up costs.
Each SBLC facility usage incurs costs such as utilities.
maintenance, and custodial cleanup, according to Assistant
Superintendent Jeff Eddison.
BYL president Garrm Mitchell, ho\ev\er, belie\ es that
SBLC should consider the \outh league's request to utilize
i the g) m as mutual cooperation "We are a feeder program
for the middle and high school sports teams." said Mitchell.
"We should be \working together for these kids." he said.
SMitchell said he has attempted to reach an
agreement with the school board in an effort to satisfy all
parties. He said the school board has stayed firm with their
mandatory> $50 per use fee.
Mitchell noted other area communities have similar
arrangements to what he is looking for \\ ith the SBLC
facility. He said Ne\wberry High School charges its
community ,outh league a nominal fee for each game-
day gym usage only For practices. arranged around the
schedules of the school's sports teams, the facility is utilized
free of charge. according to south league officials.
"I'm oka. with paying for game times, but not for each
practice da\." Mitchell said.
Mitchell asked SBLC for a total of ten days usage this
season to hold practice in the old gy m.
As part of the larger area league, BYL ",as required
to host other participating town teams for game da\ last
Saturday. Mitchell approached Bronson High School
Principal Valerie Boghanam and asked to use the new gym
for the day.
Boghanam welcomed the league and agreed to waive the
rental fee.
"Ms. Boghanam understands that it's beneficial to the'
school and community," said Bronson Mayor Franklin
Schuler.
Mayor Schuler is troubled by the School Board's stance
on the rental fee. "This should be a community effort," he
said. "The youth league benefits the schools by preparing
the kids for high.school level sports."
The town does not charge for the school's use of the
Bronson Park, nor do they plan to charge in the future,
according to Mayor Schuler. "We're all heart. We want to

help," he said "Basketball and the other sports are important
to this community "
I hlie town owns the park that contains the BYL fields.
The town absorbs all utility\ costs associated with the park.
For the past se% eral ears Bronson Middle and High School
teams have utilized the town park for softball, baseball. and
track, as %well as soccer beginning last fall. The Town of
Bronson has not charged the school or youth league for an\
facility usage to date, according to town officials.
Although the school receives free use of the park.
the School Board contends that the circumstances are not
equal and the gym rental fee remains in place. "The gym is
not a public park," Jeff Eddison said.
The park does not require electricity during the
day light hours, but that is the onl\ difference in costs
incurred, according to Bronson Public Works officials.
Restrooms and other general custodial cleanup is necessary.
Field maintenance and upkeep is necessary. As opposed to
general public use, organized sports of anm kind create the
need for more maintenance, officials said.
"We modified field four to accommodate the
middle school baseball team because they play on
a bigger diamond," said David White. BYL Vice
President. The school did not assist w ith costs or labor
for those modifications. "And we were happy to do it.
We \want to \work together," White said.
The directors, coaches, parents and other
volunteers of BYL actively work %with the town's public
works employees to maintain the park's sports fields
year round. BYL is a non-profit organization operating
entirely through the work of volunteers.
Mayor Schuler spoke with pride regarding basketball
in Bronson. "Basketball is the thing in Bronson. Lots
of us around here played in that old gym. It means
something to all of us. It would be good to see it get

Police and Fire

Awards Banquet

Each year the Williston Police and Fire Departments
come together and recognize accomplishments in both
Departments. Recipients are nominated and or elected by
their peers in each department. Notably, this causes some
duplication because there is overlap of responsibilities
between departments. This year's event was held at the
Williston Crossings banquet room on Friday February 1,
2008 at 6 p.m. The meal was catered by Williston Crossings
staff.
The Banquet is funded by ticket sales and generous
donations from individuals and businesses inri the
community. Sponsors of this event include: Williston
Crossings, Williston Tire, The Junction, Nature Coast
Financial. Food Ranch Stores, Fast Cash and the First
United Methodist Church Youth. We wish to thank all these
folks for their support.

Refinancing Your Adjustable-Rate Mortgage Into A Fixed-Rate Mortgage


If you are among the millions of homeowners with an
adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM), you may be facing
increasing interest rates as your loan adjusts. Refinancing
might be the solution to your problem.

Homeowners refinance for a variety of reasons, including
taking cash out of their home's equity to make home
improvements, consolidating debt and to obtain a more
favorable interest rate. However, many Americans are
now refinancing primarily to move from an adjustable-
rate to a predictable, fixed-rate mortgage to avoid future
interest rate adjustments.

"There are many factors to consider when refinancing
your mortgage depending on your particular situation,"
says Jim Ferriter, executive vice president for GMAC
Mortgage. "If you have been living in your home for
several years orif you're facing a rate reset on an
adjustable-rate mortgage, you may find that refinancing
pays for itself from the resulting lower monthly payment
or from feeling the comfort of having a fixed monthly
payment."

Here are some tips to help you consider whether
refinancing is an appropriate option for you.

Know the terms of your current mortgage. How often will
your mortgage adjust? How much will it adjust? These are
both important factors to consider when determining if
refinancing is a viable option. Contact your lender now so
that you are fully aware of the terms of your ARM loan to
avoid any surprises when your mortgage adjusts.

Think about how long you will live in your home. A big
factor in deciding to refinance is calculating how long
you will continue to live in your house. The longer you
live in your home, the more money you can potentially
save in interest costs from refinancing. GMAC Mortgage
has several helpful tools on its Web site, http://www.
gmacmortgage.com, including a break-even calculator that
will tell you how many years you will need to live in your
home to recoup the cost of refinancing.

Maintain a good credit score. A good credit score is one
factor that could enable you to obtain more favorable
financing terms. Paying bills on time and keeping credit
card debt low are easy ways to maintain good credit.
Check your credit report every year to ensure there are
no negative marks on your credit history, such as missed
credit card payments or
large account balances.


Determine refinancing
costs. Consult a loan
officer to figure out what
fees are involved with
refinancing. You may have
to pay an application fee
as well as closing costs.
You may also choose to
pay discount points to buy
down the interest rate.
By knowing the up-front
costs for refinancing, you
can determine exactly how
much time it will take to
recover the expense.

Roll-in refinancing. You can
avoid paying fees up front
and immediately enjoy
lower monthly payments by
rolling in your closing costs
into the new loan. Rolling
in your costs is particularly
appropriate if you will sell
your home or refinance
again in a few years
because having a higher

Every homeowner has a different scenario for determining

might make sense to refinance if you have the opportunity
to save money by lowering the cost of your monthly
payment-or the opportunity to seek the comfort of
knowing that your mortgage payment will remain fixed.

TRAVEL TIPS


SHE RI FF
JOHNNY SMITH


If you plan on traveling away to visit love ones
please keep these tips in mind. Following a few
simple crime prevention tips can help reduce your
risk of becoming a victim.
When considering a hotel, you may look for one
that offers security guards that patrol the property
and well-lit parking lots. Once you have checked in
to your room, make sure you know the most direct routes to the elevator, stairs and fire
escapes. Always utilize all door locks in your hotel room. If the door has a peephole, use
it before automatically opening your door. If someone comes to your door claiming to be a
repairman, ask to see their identification and call the front desk to verify their identity. Do
not leave valuables in your room; usually the hotel will not be responsible for any theft of
your property. If you have valuables use the hotel safe to store your precious belongings.
When leaving your room turn on a light, radio or television to make it appear occupied.
Always be aware of your surroundings. Pickpockets work in teams and carefully
stalk their victims. Watch for staged distractions like a loud commotion, dropping
an object on the ground and asking for assistance and also bumping in to you in large
crowds. This can be a precursor to being a victim of the pickpocket's scheme. The
thief looks for the purse that is unzipped or the wallet in the back pocket. Avoid
carrying large amounts of cash and traveler's checks or credit cards can be a safer
alternative.'
Remember to always lock your doors when inside your car. Avoid leaving any expensive
items in plain view because this only entices a thief. Although your vehicle's trunk is not
- completely secure, it is the safest place to store your valuables while traveling. Avoid all
aspects of advertising that you are not from the area,
Taking these precautionary measures will minimize the chances of becoming a victim.
During your travels, I want you to have fun and the most important thing is to be safe.

Log Cabin Quilters met January 31 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Pat was busy
helping young quilters put their quilts together and got them started quilting. One will be
done on the machine. We had visitors from Ocala and always enjoy them as Alton makes
our spool holders. We also enjoyed four ladies from Chiefland, who will be going to the fair
with us the Feb. 12. It will be something for us to see if anyone won any ribbons.
Derick and six boys were out Tuesday and got the lemons taken care of. We try to teach
whatever there is to do-we tell them one day what they learn will come in handy. Thanks
Lancaster.
We always welcome visitors who come to see us. We had a couple in from California.
She is a quilter, and we had a wonderful visit. After everyone had left, a couple came in
from Thomasville, Georgia and we made more friends. It's always so great to hear others
tell us as well as show us their projects and get ideas.

We are happy to announce the opening of the
Chiefland Chiropractic Center at Nature Coast
Professional Center (410 North Main St.). Many
of my friends and patients have encouraged this
over the years and have been instrumental in our
decision. I have worked for over 30 years in
Gainsville and will continue to provide quality
chiropractic care to the Tri County area at our
new location. We want everyone to enjoy good
health and know that this starts with a healthy
nervous system that controls everything. We
seek to correct the cause...not the effect of the ill
health. We want to make a difference in people's
lives. Why choose t0iopatactic?...... Because I
know it is right and IT WORKS! We look forward
to seeing our friends and meeting new ones.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL AROUNG LEVY COUNTY


Students Shine at Levy County Gala.


BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County Superintendent's Gala raised approximately $20,000 this year that will
fund scholarships for area students. The event was held in the new Williston Middle School
grand cafetorium on Saturday.
I thought about reporting a bare-bones news story of this event, and yet the impressive
student participation was just too much to ignore. I left the Gala feeling so exuberant that I
want to share my first hand experience. The students made the event spectacular.
When I first arrived, a young man in ROTC uniform greeted me with a smile and opened
the door. Once seated inside, a member of the National Honor Society immediately set me
ip with coffee. For the remainder of the night, she was never too far away, always offering
inore coffee, the next food course, and clearing the table of finished delicacies.
: Throughout the evening, I was served a fantastically yummy and elaborate meal prepared
by the Culinary Arts students from Williston High School. Shrimp cocktail waited my
arrival at the table along with a spring mix salad with raspberry vinaigrette. The entr6e
of roasted pork tenderloin, crispy chicken, gourmet potatoes and fresh green beans was
followed by a dessert medley of cheesecake, chocolate cake with raspberry sauce and the
*ery popular white-chocolate mousse. Wow!
; The exquisite meal was complemented with fine Broadway-themed entertainment by the
county's very talented youth.
The drama students from Chiefland High School made it difficult for me to take decent
photographs of them, as they evoked constant laughter. Each time I saw a good photo-op,
I found myself giggling at The Arts jokes and then society's attempt to overmedicate the
medicated in a performance of The Cold War. Most of my photos from this part have very
unfortunate "camera shake." But the laughter definitely made it worthwhile.
Sarah Gore, a charming six-grader, also from Chiefland, knocked our socks off with
an amazing medley of "Amazing Grace." She brought many to tears and received a well-
earned standing ovation for her performance.
Williston High School chorus sang a beautiful rendition of the Rent song "Seasons of
Love." It was powerful stuff as they stood there lining the entire length of the stage singing
in harmony about what makes a life meaningful.
The Bronson High School concert band closed the entertainment portion with music
from the much-loved Phantom of the Opera. Experiencing the band's well-practiced
production, one would not have guessed that many of the students, as well as Band Director
Stacy Gindlesperger, had spent most of the day at an Ensemble competition in Gainesville.
The band was in top form it's no wonder they received Superior marks at this year's
Marching Band Districts.
I commend the students of Levy County for their incredible accomplishments.
An enormous amount of preparation goes into an event like this. Levy County Schools
Foundation, the main sponsor for the event, and administrative assistant Tami Wain along
with the Gala committee really did an excellent job. Superintendent Cliff Norris hosted the
party, welcoming everyone and giving out the door prizes but as he said, "the students
made this possible."
Superintendent's Gala? Perhaps it would be more aptly named the Students of Levy
County Gala. m
