Levy County Jail and SBLC Question Sewer Bills


BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
The Levy County Jail disconnected from the Town
of Bronson wastewater treatment plant last Friday
due to high costs, jail officials reported.
Prior to the change, the jail's wastewater was pumped
into the town's plant for nine hours each day. For
the remaining 15 hours from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. daily
- the wastewater continued to flow to the jail's own
treatment facility.
Director of Law Enforcement Major Mike Johnson
said the department will save a significant amount of
money by returning full time to their own treatment
plant. "It will help dramatically," he said.
December's water and sewer bill was $10,552. The
sewer portion of that bill totaled $7,790.
To compensate for the 15-hour period that the jail
was not using the town's plant, "I had asked the Town
to prorate the charges," said Maj. Johnson. He said
that he isn't sure why that didn't happen.
In 2003, Levy County Board of County
Commissioners contributed $100,000 dollars to the
STown of Bronson to assist with the treatment facility
construction. As reimbursement, the Town billed the
County's water and sewer at half cost until the money
was repaid. The agreement included the county jail
and the county courthouse.
According to Bronson records, the money was repaid as of December, resulting
in the jail's dramatic utility bill increase.
The Levy County Jail is using an average 500,000 gallons of water per month.
With approximately 160 inmates and 40 employees, that is an average of 82 gallons
of water per day per person.
In comparison, Gilchrist County Jail reports show an average of 55 gallons per
person per day.
"I just don't know where the water is going," said Maj. Johnson. "Our showers
are all on timers, and there is no evidence of a leak."
An employee from a nearby jail facility who wished to remain anonymous
speculated that part of the water usage problem may be due to liberal usage of
shower facilities. "Some of them take, three, four, even six showers a day," the
employee said.
The Bronson wastewater issue extends beyond the jail.
Recently it came to the attention of the Levy County School's Director of
Finance Robert Clemens that there were discrepancies among the individual high
schools utility bills. "There are some anomalies here. I've sent an inquiry and
hopefully we can clear this up," he said.
Bronson High school's water and sewer bill varies from month to month as much
as $1,200 or more when school is in session, according to information provided by


Crossing Guards Now

of Chiefland City Fan


BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
The Chiefland City Commission voted unanimously
Monday to make crossing guards employees of the
city.
Effective this current pay period, crossing guards
will no longer be contract employees responsible for
invoicing the city for their time.
"We want to take care of our school crossing guards
as best we can," said City Manager Grady Hartzog.
Once the employees become part of the city,
Chiefland will be required to match the social security
taxes and fund retirement, according to Hartzog.
Because the School Board of Levy County
reimburses the city for their crossing guard expenses,
Hartzog asked if SBLC would provide matching funds
to Chiefland's added costs due to taxes and retirement.
SBLC responded that they do not have money in

Clemens. That variation is a fluctuation of more than one hundred percent. By way
of comparison, Chiefland and Williston High Schools remain consistent, varying
approximately $150 from month to month, a fluctuation of less than 20 percent.
In a letter addressed to Bronson Mayor Franklin Schuler dated February 8,
Clemens asked about the largest discrepancy he found. "Can you explain why the
sewer bills for Bronson High do not seem to correlate to the number of gallons of
water used?" Clemons points with particular concern to the months of September
and December sewer charges of $1,149.30 and $1,490.55. By way of contrast,
sewer charges for the months of October, November and January range from
$547.80 to $585.15.
Billed sewers based on the number of gallons of water usage, according to
Bronson Town Officials. Once a customer exceeds the base limit of 20,000 gallons,
each additional 1,000 gallons of sewer is billed at $15. Water costs $5 for each
1,000 gallons over the base limit. Given this mathematical formula, charges for
water should never exceed charges for sewer. During the months of July, October
and November 2007, however, charges for water averaged $241 higher than sewer
charges.
"Perhaps the calibrations on the pump stations are not working correctly,"
Clemmons stated in the letter.

their budget to accommodate Chiefland's request,
Hartzog said. He said that SBLC does not reimburse
the other cities for taxes incurred either.
Crossing guards are hired by the police department
to ensure that they have adequate safety skills and
a clean background. With the new payroll change,
crossing guards will now receive minimum wage
instead of a flat rate. "The rate they have been getting
comes in just under minimum wage," Hartzog said.
"It's not much," said crossing guard Mary Ann
Griner. And when you think about it, she said, "we
make two trips to our job everyday. Other people just
make one."
Mayor Teal Pomeroy expressed the council's
appreciation to Griner and her fellow guards. "We
thank the School Crossing Guards for their labor of
love," he said.


Three on the Run After Williston

Home Invasion and Attempted

Robbery
Three black males forcibly entered a residence at 21431 N.E. 35 Street on Feb. 11 and
committed the offenses of home invasion, attempted robbery and aggravated battery. The
suspects left the area and may be traveling in a white car.
At 11:45 p.m. three suspects forcibly entered a residence at the Mack Apartments. Three
adult victims and four juveniles ranging from three months old to eight years of age were
inside the residence.
Upon entry into the residence, one suspect put a gun to the victims head and demanded
money. The second suspect struck a second victim in the head causing a contusion. The
third ordered another victim from the bedroom to the living room.
During this incident a witness went to the victim's residence to investigate the noise.
Upon the witness entering, one of the men grabbed the witness and said "You are going
with us". The suspect threatened to kill the witness, but she broke free and ran. The
suspects were observed running on foot and a suspicious unknown make and model white
car was seen leaving the area.

School Board Employees

Vote On Contract Friday

BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
Levy County teachers and school support staff will
vote Friday whether to accept or reject proposed contract
changes. If the contract is approved, the changes will be
retroactive to the beginning of the academic year..
Presentations were made at an Impasse hearing Feb.
5 by the bargaining teams for both the Levy County
Educators Association (the union) and SBLC. The School
Board unanimously voted to accept in full the SBLC
team's proposal. The School Board did not include any
proposed amendments from LCEA.
School employees that will cast votes tomorrow, also
known as the collective bargaining unit, include teachers
and education staff professionals (ESP), as well as
maintenance, cafeteria, transportation and other school
employees, regardless of membership in the union.
The proposed contract designed by SBLC contains a
two percent across the board increase for all employees.
For instructional staff, steps 0-3 of the salary schedule
will be compressed. A first-year teacher will have the
same base salary as fourth-year teacher. SBLC Assistant
Superintendent Jeff Edison said the county hopes this
will attract new teachers to the area. "We're focusing on
recruitment," he said.
LCEA President Cindy Roach said that collapsing
the pay steps may keep the county from retaining their
employees. "This gives teachers no reason to stay," she
said. "Kids need continuity, not constant turn-over."
The LCEA proposal utilized the same amount of mor~iey
in the SBLC pay sqale-,''We just4listributedit more fairly.
across the steps," Roach said. "Taking money from the
middle of the scale to give it to the top and bottom steps
is harmful to morale." She said that the proposed SBLC
salary schedule is by design intended to be divisive and
create ill will among employees.
If Friday's vote results in a rejection of the contract,
retroactive pay will no longer be part of the agreement.
The bargaining teams will move to meet again with the
School Board for more discussion. The final decision may
be left up to the School Board.

Bronson Sewer Committee

Discusses Rate Changes, Expansion


BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER


Jim Beck, Chair of the Bronson Sewer Committee,
pointed out incongruities in sewer rates when compared to
the surrounding cities of Williston and Chiefland Tuesday
night at the Bronson Sewer Workshop. "We are so far out
of line with our rates," he said.
Beck noted that once users reach the basic service
threshold, Bronson charges $15 for each additional 1,000
gallons whereas Williston and Chiefland charge $3 and
$3.50 respectively.
Beck also stated the need to simplify the fee process.
"We have to have an understandable sewer rate," he said,
In addition to the need for a fair and equitable rate plan,
Beck proposed a new mission statement that addresses the
need for another wastewater facility as soon as possible
and completion of infrastructure in order to prepare for
governmental, commercial and residential growth.
"The infrastructure in this town is very poor,"
said Frank Darabi, Bronson Town Engineer. Darabi
emphasized the need to plan for future sewer services.
"This town is going to grow, whether you want it to or
not," he said.
Infrastructure comprises adequate piping and uptake
pumps to carry wastewater to the sewer plant.
Darabi is confident that he can find funding for an
expansion of the existing treatment facility paid for by
grant monies (45 percent) and a low cost loan (55 percent)
payable over 40 years. The main problem is funding
infrastructure, according to Darabi. "What I can't tell

you is the cost of the pipelines," he said. A survey and
agreements of right-of-way are needed.
Darabi stressed the necessity for the Town of Bronson
to renew its current permit for sewage treatment. "If the
permit expires, that means you have to start over as though
it were a new construction," he warned. Lapse of the
permit would mean extra costs, he said.
The permit expires in the next two weeks. Mayor
Frankin Schuler offered his assurance to the sewer
committee, "The permit is going to be done."
Given proper planning and organization, Darabi
expressed optimism in the future. "What has happened in ,
the past is not going to solve our problems. We need to go
forward. Let's do it right," he said.
In other business, citizens voiced the need to hire a
Town Manager to act as a liaison to the Bronson Town
Council. Sunshine laws forbid communication between
council members regarding governmental business.
Currently, the council meets monthly. A town manager
would facilitate more responsive government, according
to County Commissioner Tony Parker. "I don't know that
we would get anything done" without a manager at the ,
County, he said.
Chair Beck concluded the meeting, encouraging
unity and organization. "Folks we need to start working
together. We need to decide as a group," he said.
Upcoming meetings regarding sewer and water will
be announced. All citizens are encouraged to participate,
Beck said.

Drugs Disguised as Candy

Target Children

BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum and the
Florida Association of School Resource Officers
issued an advisory warning last week to parents,
teachers, and school administrators on the circulation
of candy-flavored drugs throughout the United States.
"These dangerous drugs are being cleverly
disguised and distributed among our children and we
must work together to educate them about these very
grave risks," said Attorney General McCollum in a
press release.
According to the Attorney General's Office, federal
and'state-law enforcement agencies have recently -
reported that .flavored _drugsfirst noticedQonathe West, .
Coast, particularly methamphetamines, heroin and
marijuana, are rapidly appearing across the country.
Flavors include strawberry, chocolate, cola and
others, according to reports. The flavoring apparently
reduces the bitter taste of the drug and does not affect
the drug's potency.
The advisory warned that children might mistake
the drugs for candy pop rocks, bubble gum or other
candy. The drugs could be ingested by unsuspecting
children and are extremely harmful, said authorities.
"This is a grave problem and shows to what lengths
drug dealers will go," said Robert Tricquet, president '
of the Florida Association of School Resource
Officers. "This is a direct attempt to reach out and
attract a younger age group luring them into the drug
culture. We must be ever vigilant with our children to
protect them from these predators," Tricquet said.
Drugs disguised as candy have not been found in
Levy County, according to Lt. Sean Mullins, Levy
County School Resource Commander.
"Fortunately, we haven't seen anything like this
here," Lt. Mullins said in a phone interview Monday.
"My officers are aware of the warning and are actively
watching for this," he said.
The Attorney General's Office and Florida
Association of School Resource Officers urge parents
to encourage their children to avoid any participation
in distributing or using the drugs, no matter how
harmless they may seem, and to report any suspicious
activity to the appropriate authorities or a trusted
adult.
For Levy County students who would to like report
criminal activity at their school but wish to remain
anonymous, a hotline is available at 1-877-349-8477.

Log Cabin Quilters k
met Thursday, Feb. 7 at
the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Kim Hart is our*'
new member and she is '
really getting into quilting:
She has put together a top
using T-shirt emblems and,
has made a very interesting'
quilt. Quilting is going welI
on the other quilts that the-,
quillters are working on.
Nick Turner and six
boys were out Tuesday,
and what a great day we
had. People may wonder -
why we have so much to
do, but it takes a lot of
help to keep our museum
looking good. They keep 3
the yard mowed in summer,
they clean and weed out -
the'flower beds, they plant
for our garden, they wash ;
rugs, mop floors, sweep
the outside, crack and
shell pecans, cut cabbage ,
for kraut, peel cucumbers'
for pickles, hang pictures,,
wash windows and so much
more. We could not keep ;
the museum as it is without
these boys coming out
and working. Some come
that don't know how to do.i
much but when they go
back they can say they have
learned something useful.:
Thanks, Lancaster.
Tuesday we go to the fair
and we look forward to a
great day. If you have made
reservations and find you
can't go, please call before
Monday at 493-2801, we
have people waiting to go.
Lunch was a table full
of good food, chicken and
noodles, rutabagas, fried
apples, peas, stew, corn,
Shepard pie, lots of salads.
and the dessert table was
overflowing. Twenty people
were present.

To start the sixth inning, Coach Parnell gave the ball to Jeremy Hayes.
Coach Parnell was concerned whether or not Hayes was warmed up enough as the temperature dropped even further.
Hayes struck out the side.
In the seventh inning he allowed two base runners but buckled down with two outs and struck out the last Tiger batter.
Defensively, Indian catcher Mike Perkins made a nice throw to second base, pegging the Tiger base runner in the first
inning. The Tigers decided they needed a bigger head start before trying to stealing again.
Matt Williams started the Indian offense
with a double to left field. First baseman
Shivers then doubled to the gap in left field

The Indians had a big fifth inning with
Clenton Wasson driving in two runs with a
single. Then Mike Perkins reached first after

Championship.

Championship Trophy. It was
Coleman's buzzer beater
shot in overtime, the night
before against the Newberry
Panthers that put the Red
Devils in the championship
game.


m
oe


Trailing by a 25-24 score at half time, the Red Devils
started the second half and seemed to want it more.
Had it not been for the shooting and scoring of Josh
Snodgrass who single-handedly kept the Blue Wave in
the game the entire way, the score would have been much
worse than the 64-60 win for the Red Devils.
The Red Devils did not have an answer for Snodgrass
the entire game, as he scored time and time again from all
over the floor. The Red Devils made the Blue Wave work
extra hard for their shots, but this Snodgrass kid played a
tremendous game.
The Red Devils tried to deny him the basketball to no
avail, and when they fouled him, he would simply sink his
free throws. I .
In the third quarter the Red Devils outscored the Blue
Wave 18-11 to take a 42-36 lead into the final quarter of
play.
At the four minute mark the Red Devils led by 10 points
on two straight three-point baskets by the Red Devils.
But again, it was Snodgrass dropping in a three-point
basket from NBA range to keep the Blue Wave in striking
distance.
The Red Devils had their lead cut to 5 points before
Isaac Floyd made a reverse lay up off a great pass by Devin
Timmons.
Snodgrass cut the Red Devil lead to four points with a
lay up and a free throw.
This time it was Kelcey Coleman hitting a nice lay up


for the Red Devils.
With under a minute left after a rare Snodgrass miss, the Red Devils James Hunt was
fouled and the freshman stepped to the line and dropped in two free throws putting the Red
Devils up by seven points with just 18 seconds remaining.
Snodgrass again sank a three-point basket for the Blue Wave as the clock was down to
5 seconds. Snodgrass scored
32 points of the team's 60,
while Wally Wade had 13
points. The rest of the Blue .
Wave team totaled just 15
points for the night.
The Red Devils threw the .. "
ball inbound and dribbled
out the clock for the 64-
60 win and the District
Championship.
The Blue Wave players,
coaches and fans stood
shocked and in disbelief that
they had not won the district Journal photo by Steve Jarboe
championship again. The Red Devils Isaac Floyd dives for a loose ball.
The Red Devils should
savor this district championship, and if the fourth match up with the Blue Wave is in their
immediate future, they certainly need to find a way to stop Josh Snodgrass and Wally
Wade.
The Red Devils had balanced scoring and unselfish play which is their style of play.
Sophomore Isaac Floyd had 17 points, sophomore Kelcey Coleman had 11 points,
Sophomore Deonte Welch had 12 points, and CJ James added 11 points. Devin Timmons
and freshman James Hunt accounted for the other 13 points for the Red Devils.

MARINE CRIME WATCH TIPS
,s 1-1 E R I t I
Iu 1-1 i N N ', [ ., l T IT


I.


This program provides the marine community with the same benefits
and protection that neighborhood watch does in other areas. The emphasis
is on prevention and deterrence by practicing simple common sense
precautions %which reduces thefts. vandalism and other criminal activities.
This is accomplished by educating boat owners and the marine
community to carry out simple crime prevention measures, encouraging
all w\aterwa\ users to develop a community spirit and report suspicious
incidents and developing a close liaison \ith police to ensure a two-way flow of information.
The scope of marine crime is very broad ranging from theft of vessels and equipment, to crimes
against indi\ duals. fraud, drugs, environmental crimes, boating offenses, and wildlife violations. Every
year thousands of dollars worth of boats and equipment are stolen and property vandalized. The marine
community is not exempt from all types of illegal activity such as narcotics and violent crime.
The primary goal is to deter theft, \andalism and all criminal activity in the marine environment
community by reporting suspicious or criminal incidents to law enforcement. There are many things that
you can do to protect yourself and your property from criminal activity. Any\, crime prevention technique
which requires a suspect to spend more time, make more of an effort or to be more visible during the
commission of a crime, may discourage the suspect altogether.
Use the best locks you can afford. Most thieves are opportunists and seek out easy enter It is also a
sensible idea to remove as many items as practicable when you leave your boat unattended. When securing
your vessel, take home as much gear as you can. If it is not practical to take it with you, store it aboard out
of sight in a cabinet or locker with good quality locks. If possible you need to mark your valuables with an
engraver and photograph or video your valuables. This will help law enforcement identify your property if
you are a victim of marine theft.
Many thieves are successful because they look as if they belong in an area. Be sure to always lock your
vehicle when parked at a launch site, marina or dock. Remember to keep all w windows secured and to
remove an\ valuables from sight. If you are not taking your purse, cell phone or other property, lock it in
the trunk w\\hile you are gone.
Be mindful and alert to any suspicious vehicles or persons who are lingering in the area. Record license
numbers of suspicious \ vehicles and try to obtain physical descriptions of any suspicious persons who may
have been observed loitering in the area.
Remember, vigilance is an important key to deterrence. Observing what is
going on around you at all TLC /esl
times and remembering
these few safety tips can tart your
help deter crime. "1 ea ills that wil

Miss Honey Says...

Hi Ya'Il.
It's now 3 am NlondaN and sours truly is having a
cup of hot coffee, not because I really wanted coffee. but because
I needed to warm up. Yes it's cold in my house, my heat is not
working and neither is my oven. and if this keeps up neither will
Miss Honey. I'll be frozen too! ll huh, no I'm not kidding.
I'll call the repairman in the morning and have him come fix
my heat. I can get along without mN oven., but not my heat! Oh
baby it's cold in here.
This is one time I don't mind my little dogs up here in m) chair
with me, oh no. they are keeping me much %warmer than no heat
at all. Yes pupp) love and body heat is better than no heat or love
at all, oh yeah, is too. Baby Doll is asleep beside me in my chair.
Little Bit is on the back behind my head and Sweet Pea is asleep
in his cage inside the hall, but Sugar wants to proxe he's tough.
He is outside. I tried to get him in. but he wagged his tail as if
to say no thank you, I'm tough and I have a fur coat to keep me
warm.
I had a flat tire on my car yesterday, but my neighbor John
was kind enough to change it for me. The one that was flat was
beyond fixing, but I'll sa) again God takes care of his own and I
am one of his!
I went to Williston Saturday evening and I heard a noise, but
I stopped and looked at the tires and saw nothing., so I came
on home, parked and looked at the tires again and saw nothing
wrong, but Sunday was a different story. That tire is beyond
fixing. Now you tell me God doesn't take care of his own. but
make me believe that, never! I know he takes care of me and
rides with me when I am out on the highway.
I have some dolls I got at a yard sale who need some clothes,
so when I come back home today, I'll make some clothes to dress
them in and make them pretty again.
I really have a lot to do, but no one to make me do it Ho-w does
that sound? I washed clothes last night while watching TV.
I'll shut up, get up and take this to the Journal and visit friends
at A&A Restaurant. Maybe I'll roll some silverware. Yeah. Aunt
Mertie Moring rolled silver for me when I worked for Al Blair
and I am returning the favor.
Until next week I'll say have a good week and God bless each
ofyou.
So says,
Miss Honey

Florida's Top Bass



Fishing Opportunities

By: Bob Wattendorf, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(special thanks to Wes Porak and John Cimbaro, FWC)
For anglers of all abilities and experience, nothing beats the opportunities for
landing freshwater bass in Florida's 10,550 miles of rivers, streams and creeks or
in its 7,000 plus lakes.
The latest national statistics indicate there are 30 million anglers, and 10 million
of them specifically pursue freshwater bass, compared to 6.8 million fishing for
trout and 2.1 million-fishing for flatfish (the most popular saltwater group).
Florida has four species of freshwater or black basses: largemouth, spotted,
Suwannee and shoal. Of those, largemouth are by far the most common since
they live in almost every body of fresh water in Florida. At any level of fishing
experience, the thrill of a bass hitting a topwater lure is one to get the juices
flowing and make you glad to be outside.
Each year Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
fisheries biologists select a list of Florida lakes and rivers as top black bass
fishing destinations. Their choices are based on local experience, creel surveys,
electrofishing data and the site's ability to handle fishing pressure with adequate
ramps and fishing access. This year's list follows, in no particular order. For more
details about how and where to fish these lakes, the location of local facilities,
where to find quarterly updates throughout the year and information about fish
consumption advisories or special regulations, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing/
Forecasts.
Lake George is the second-largest lake in the state with 46,000 acres and is
located 18 miles northwest of Deland.

Lake Tohopekaliga (18,810 acres), also known as Lake "Toho," is adjacent
to the City of Kissimmee in Central Florida.

Lake Kissimmee (35,000 acres) is nationally renowned for consistently
producing high-quality fishing.

Rodman Reservoir, east of Gainesville and south of Palatka, covers 9,500
acres of prime largemouth bass habitat.

Lake Tarpon (2,500 acres) is near Tampa/St. Petersburg in Pinellas County.

Lake Weohyakapka, commonly known as Lake Walk-in-Water (7,500
acres), is south of Orlando and east of Lake Wales.

Lake Istokpoga (28,000 acres) is situated in Highlands County between
U.S. 27 and U.S. 98 south of Sebring.

Deer Point Lake is a 5,000-acre impoundment north of Panama City and is
fed by natural freshwater streams.

The Suwannee River is a pristine, black-water stream that flows 213 miles
within Florida from a swampy region near the Georgia border to the Gulf of
Mexico.

The Everglades Water Conservation Areas are South Florida marshlands
intersected with over 200 miles of canals.

Crescent Lake is a 15,725-acre lake near Crescent City on the Putnam/
Flagler.county line.

The 7,300-acre Tenoroc Fish Management Area near Lakeland provides a
special opportunity to bass fish in Florida's famous phosphate pits.

Mosaic Fish Management Area (1,000 acres) includes 12 phosphate pits
from 10 to 200 acres each, with depths down to 30 feet.

Note: Missing for 2008 from this list of top bass fishing destinations is 450,000-
acre Lake Okeechobee. Recently revered by largemouth bass and crappie anglers
nationwide, the "Big 0" is imperiled by environmental consequences of prolonged
high water levels, agricultural runoff and 2004 and 2005 hurricanes that wreaked
havoc on Okeechobee's aquatic plant communities. FWC biologists continue
to assist the South Florida Water Management District, U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, Florida Department of Environmental Protection and others in restoring
the lake and its fishery to its glory days. New, more restrictive regulations will take
effect on July 1 for both bass and crappie to help the lake recover. Contact local
marinas and tackle stores for current conditions.
With all those "top sites" to choose from, don't overlook the smaller lakes and
ponds in your area.
So get out there and catch the next state record, and if you catch a memorable
fish (exceeding 24" or 8 pounds for an adult angler, or 18" and/or 6 pounds for a
youth under 16 years of age), you can apply for a "Big Catch" angler recognition
certificate (see your regulations summary or visit MyFWC.com/Fishing). Whether
your next bass measures up or not, remember "A bad day fishing beats a good day
working," so good luck and good fishing.
Find additional information at MyFWC.com/Fishing/Forecasts, including
details about access to these top bass sites, quarterly forecasts and consumption
advisories.
Instant licenses are available at MyFWC.com/License or by calling 1-888-

VERSATILITY
AND BALANCE
Versatility and balance are
keys to consistent fishing
success. So is simplicity.
Today, with all of the
technological advances In
rods, reels, baits, boats, and
electronics, it's easy to get
caught up In the rush to fish
the hardware and techniques
that are hot this week. That's
not what versatility and
balance are all about.
Rather, you should develop
your own style--recognizing
that you'll need different
approaches for different
fishing situations. Then, keep
things as simple as possible
by sticking to the things you
do best.
Concentrate on what you're
doing, and all of those.
elements will combine to
produce more fish for you on
every trip.

CRAPPIE TRICK
Having trouble catching
spring crappies? Here's a little
trick that could help you put
a mess of good eating crappie
in your boat.
Attach a minnow to a #4
style Mr. Crappie- hook about
3 or 4 feet under a small to
medium size bobber and
without any other kind of
weight. When you cast it out,
the minnow will drop very
slowly through the water.
If you don't get a bite,
gently sweep the rod tip 3 or
4 feet, pulling the minnow
right back to the surface so it
can fall through the Water
again. The sight of that slowly
falling, struggling minnow is
usually more than even the
most finicky crappie can
resist.
Wally, "Mr. Crappie'", Marshall
was the 2003 CAST Classic
Champion

PRESENTATION
Presentation is a key
element in fishing a cold
front because of the way
fish respond to the weather
change.
They tend to move close to
cover and stay there, which
means that their strike
zone is much smaller than
normal. You have to adapt to
that change and concentrate
on presentation to be
effective.
You also may have to
develop a "presentation
pattern" to enjoy a full day
of success. Keep track of
where cold front fish are
hitting your baits-on the
deeper side of a flooded
brushplle, for example-and
concentrate on making casts
to those kinds of spots.
You'll stop wasting time
and start catching fish more
often.

Hilltop Alternative School Teacher Named


Megan tuinn


What's Going

On?

BY MEGAN QUINN
FOR THE JOURNAL
It is never fun to start the New Year with a nearly
8.2 percent decline in the Dow Jones Industrial,
Average in the first two weeks of trading. And there
is certainly a lot of information to consider these
days with the lingering effects of sub-prime lending
on financial stocks, high oil prices, the falling
dollar, declines in house prices, slowing auto sales,
presidential elections, international conflict and so.on.
All of these factors have conspired to weigh heavily
on the markets. As a result, the Federal Reserve
Board (Fed) has taken an active role in cutting the
federal funds rate and is expected to continue this
trend to stimulate the economy.
The Fed cited the "weakening of the economic
outlook and the increasing downside risks to growth"
as the chief motivation for its decision. Additionally,
the Fed's statement referenced the strains in the
financial markets as one of the primary concerns.
"While strains in short-term funding markets have
eased somewhat, broader financial market conditions
have continued to deteriorate and credit has tightened
further for some businesses and households." The
Fed also noted that incoming reports are pointing
to a deepening of the housing correction and some
softening in labor markets. The Fed noted at the end
of their statement that "appreciable downside risks to
growth remain."
So with all the exciting news, many are asking,
"Should I stay or should I sell?" The truth is that
volatility in the market is a fact of investing life; it is
part of the price of entry. Bear markets, and smaller
market corrections, can and do occur with somp
regularity. For long-term investors, downside moves
in equity prices may create value that has the potential
to translate into an opportunity for rewarding gains
as markets recover. Many believe stock and bond
market volatility in the last six months represents
a much needed re-pricing of risk. This re-pricing
allows investors who are brave enough to see .beyond
market declines and volatility to possibly exploit
opportunities that simply were not there several
months ago. It is important not to let emotion obstruct
participation when a recovery begins.

District Teacher of the 1

Susan Gruber, one .of 12 f
Levy County Teachers of the '.
Year, has been chosen as Levy
County's 2008-2009 District
Teacher of the Year. The
Teachers of the Year are chosen
by their peers at each school.
The District honoree is chosen
by a panel of the teachers who
received the award the previous
year.
Those selected have been Susan Gruber
recognized at their schools, and
will also be honored during the third annual "Evening
of Excellence" on Thurs. April 24, at Chiefland High
School. This event is sponsored by the Levy County
Schools Foundation and the School Board of Levy
County.
Gruber teaches grades 6 -8 at Hilltop Alternative
School. She has been a teacher for 10 years, with the
last seven spent in Levy County.
Susan believes that a great teacher must "go the
distance" to reach students. She says a great teacher
"believes that all children can learn. When students
stumble, he or she picks them up and helps them
realize that failures are a part of learning." Great
teachers, "help students develop a zest for learning"
and "build positive values and attitudes."

Another Way, Inc would like to thank the Cedar
Key Lin'sclub for it's recent donation of $5,000
and the Chiefland Lions Club for their $1,000
contribution to help keep victims of domestic
violence and their children safe. Together this money
will be used to help provide a security fence around
our emergency shelter.
In December 2006 Another Way, Inc. opened a
new 38-bed facility in Levy County but have been
unable to put up a much needed fence for privacy
around the building providing the women and
children seeking shelter there a little more anonymity
and security.
Our organization is receiving calls everyday from
people in need. In fear of living at home with their
partners because of what might happen in the next


loved learning about new things," Susan notes.
"As a child, my family provided the inspiration for
discovering the world of books. I attended an excellent
elementary school in Michigan that added to my
appreciation of learning. At this school, the principal
told my mother that he didn't know whether I would
grow up to be an artist or an actor-so I took the best of
both worlds and became a teacher."
Susan's 10 years of teaching have not dimmed her
enthusiasm. She says she continues to teach "because
I love working with students. Just as I did as a child,
I still get excited about learning new things. I believe
my enthusiasm is a good model for my students. I
want my instruction to be as exciting, engaging, and
reachable as the way I feel inside."
Susan and her husband Roger reside in Bronson.
She is originally from Detroit, Michigan.
Other Teacher of the Year honorees include Claire
Deslandes, Bronson Elementary School; Sherrie
Schuler, Bronson High School; Kamala Reidy, Cedar
Key School Georgia Griffin, Chiefland Elementary
School; Laurie Beauchamp, Chiefland Middle School;
Lita Weingart, Chiefland High School; Jacqueline

few days, hours or minutes. Young children who have
witnessed their mothers being beaten, who watch their
mothers try to hide the cuts and bruises on their skin
fill our shelter everyday. These women and children
are emotionally disheveled clinging to a shred of hope
and are just looking for safety and support.
We want to thank all of you in this community that
assist Another Way, Inc. in providing that support. If
you would like to contribute to our fencing fund or
would like to learn more about our organization or
volunteer opportunities please call Angie Osterhoudt

of a safe place to go or someone to talk to call our '

Levy County History
163 Years Ago
February 7, 2008
From the Levy County Clerk of Court Archives and History Dept. "Search for
Yesterday," A History of Levy County, Florida, Vol. 2, Chapter Sixteen, Page 9 (excerpt),
by Sidney Gunnell, 1976, continued from January 17, 2008.
Members of that first County Commission probably had little or no experience in
governmental procedures, and in light of that, they did surprisingly well. One thing can be
assumed about them, they were versatile and adaptable.
It is doubtful that Levyville was ever known as Sodom. Sodom was a derisive name
applied to a subdivision near the courthouse, this subdivision being owned by the county
and promoted by the commission. For validation, I quote from the minutes of April 8,
1854. "It is ordered that the courthouse lots being offered for sale shall hereinafter be
called by the name of Mount Pleasant and not by the name of Sodom." Legends have a
tendency to get warped around by the passage of time. But, from the meeting of January,
1956, "It is ordered that the county cite be'known as Levyville, anything to the contrary
notwithstanding."
In the same vein, Bronson was one place and Chunky Pond was another settlement
and the two were separate. From the meeting of November, 1859, "ordered to clear the
road from Bronson by way of Chunky Pond to intersect the old road at J. Brown's place."
That scatters the legend that Bronson was named Chunky Pond. Chunky is a corruption
of the original Indian name for that lake. (For more information, please see "Search for
Yesterday," Vol 2, p. 9.)

WATTS GUY
TIPS AND HINTS FOR SAVING ENERGY


Dear STW Guy: I love Florida
weather. For me, the hotter and
steamier outside, the better.
But inside my home, I prefer a
more refreshing temperature.
Any ideas on how to keep my
house cool and comfortable?
- Hot House Blues

Dear Hot House: You probably
kliow adequate attic insulation
helps your house stay.
comfortable, but did you know
you can also insulate your
home's exterior porous block
walls? These walls common
in many Florida homes are


not very energy efficient, and
may allow unwanted air and
moisture to enter your house.
Since heating and cooling
account for almost half of the
energy used in an average home,
improving your wall insulation
with injected wall foam can
help reduce your energy bills,
