SWRMD Groundwater Levels

Extremely Low; Conservation Urged


Groundwater levels remained extremely low
throughout most of the Suwannee River Water
Management District (District) in January, with five
monitoring wells dipping to historic lows and 45 wells
experiencing new record lows for the month.
The District issued 17 emergency construction
permits for dry wells in January, and a total of 174
since April. The drop in groundwater levels is due
primarily to a long-term rainfall deficit, District
officials say. In January the District received, on
average, 3.66 inches of rainfall, with Levy and
Madison counties receiving over 4 inches and isolated
areas receiving more than 7 inches. However, the
rainfall deficit for the past 24 months is 28.31 inches,
and the National Weather Service Climate Prediction
.Center predicts that below-normal rainfall through
May will prolong and worsen the drought.
Although river levels in January increased at all
monitored sites, record monthly lows were observed
at the Santa Fe River near Fort White and the Econfina
River near Perry.
In response to the lengthy drought, the District
governing board in January issued the agency's first-
ever Phase II Water Shortage Order that includes
mandatory water-use restrictions which will take
effect on April 7.
The order includes restrictions, and some
exemptions, for all water-use categories including
residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural.
Meanwhile, District officials urge voluntary
conservation, noting that it should be an ongoing
practice for all water users.
Most agricultural operations throughout the District
have implemented or plan to implement measures

to conserve water by increasing the efficiency of
their irrigation systems. Farmers continue to work
with the District, the Suwannee River Partnership,
the Suwannee River Resource Conservation and
Development Council's mobile irrigation lab and other
partners to develop water conservation strategies.
The District also is working with cities and
counties, as well as commercial and industrial
interests, to solicit input and to coordinate
implementation and enforcement guidelines for the
restrictions.

Commissioners Make it


Easier for County Staff to

Seek Public Office


BY LARRY SCHNELL
STAFF WRITER


With interest in elections from the local to the
national level running high this year, employees of
the Levy County Commission may be interested in
seeking public office on the local or state level.
But a county policy adopted in 2004 stifles the
ability of County Commission employees to run for
office. Commissioners changed that policy at the
commission meeting Tuesday.
Commission Coordinator Fred Moody asked
for the change so that employees could run for
office without having to leave their jobs early in
the campaign process. The old policy required
that employees resign their posts with the County
Commission when they open a campaign treasury
account to run for any elected position. A campaign
treasury account normally is opened early in the
campaign process.
Commissioner Lilly Rooks was on the -
commission when the earlier, restrictive policy was
approved and wished she had not supported it."It is
so restrictive that I am ashamed that I had anything

Students and teachers from area high schools
presented Project Choice to the Levy County School
Board members Tuesday morning. The reading
program designed by University of Florida's PK
Young research school focuses on speech and debate,
reading both rigorously and with relevance, and
student tutoring. Levy County implemented the
program at the beginning of this school year.

to do with it," Rooks said.
Moody and commissioners said that the policy
would give people in the private sector an unfair
advantage in seeking public office because they
could run while still holding their jobs if their
company allowed it.
The new policy allows county commission
employees to run for office in local elections as long
as the campaign does not interfere with their county
job. Some employees are potential candidates for
the city positions in which they live. Under the new
policy, they could campaign and hold these positions
while keeping their county jobs. However, when the
policy is applied to seats on the county commission,
Florida law dictates that candidates resign on
election day, whether they win or lose.
However, they can maintain their jobs while
campaigning or could request an unpaid leave of
absence.
The policy does not apply to county employees
who do not work for the commission.

ect Choice to Levy

Members

Williston High School student Jordan Simms
demonstrated the "zigzag speech" technique taught
through the program. He showed board members his
public speaking skills by beginning his speech centered
before them, then throughout the duration of the
three- minute presentation he took three steps left, five
steps right, and two steps back to the center, changing
position with the three main points of his speech.
"We tried the zigzag in our class it was really
difficult," Bussom said to the board as she followed
Simms presentation.
The speech and debate classes have tackled many
controversial issues including seat belt usage, using
_.llphones while driving, and even same-sex marriage.
The'students often begit, their assighfifieih With'lAi fires

navigate through higher-order texts. "The students are
learning the devices of rhetoric," Booth said.
The Buddy Tutoring program takes high school
students who struggle with or show strong disinterest
in reading, and teaches them basic curriculum so that
they can take those skills and teach younger students.

School Board

Ratifies 2007-2008

Contract


BY KELLIE PARKING
STAFF WRITER
The School Board of Levy County ratified the 2007-
2008 master contract and salary schedule for teachers
and support staff Tuesday with unanimous approval.
Teachers and school staff throughout the county
overwhelmingly voted "yes" last Friday to the
proposed contract amendments, according to Levy
County Educators Association President Cindy Roach.
The final vote was 633 for acceptance and 90 against.
"We expected this," Roach said, "because of the retro-
check the employees will receive."
With the new contract in place, veteran teachers
those teaching four years or more will receive a
2.0 percent raise, while new teachers will receive a 5.3
percent raise.
Unfortunately the two-percent retroactive check
dating to the first of the school year will not be that
much, Roach said. Also unfortunate is that the basic
raise does-not match inflation rates or the rising costs
of living.
According to the Florida Department of Revenue
website, the cost-of-living adjustment for 2007 was
3.20 percent, and for 2008 it is 2.90 percent. Given
these numbers, it appears that most Levy County
employees received only a partial cost-of-living
adjustment not a raise in salary.
In addition to the salary increase, a $1000
supplement was approved for employees with a
Reading Endorsement or Certification. Endorsements
are obtained through professional development training
hours and certification is achieved by acquiring a
Master's degree in Reading.
Board member Rick Turner questioned why
administrators also receive the reading supplement.
Salary schedules should be set up to recognize
career accomplishments, he said. "I would want our
administrators to already have these endorsements and
that it be reflected in their salary," he added. Turner
pointed out that during contract negotiations he had
advocated for teachers who are part of the collective
bargaining unit, whereas administrators are not.
Cindy Roach said she understands Turner's point of
view. A few years ago, SBLC approved a $5000 sign-
on bonus-for new school administrators, as well as an
addi k'iW f5 00 'bonius iffli'einplO@d Bibd into he
countyBounFaries,sai'koacn.' A6W dditlonally7s'he said,
administrators are already on a separate pay scale that
compensates them for having the qualifications and
experience necessary to do the job.

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


"What in the world," I declared as I peered out the front
blinds. "Kailey, get out there and tell your brother to get in
the house."
The wind was whipping through our little cove, swift
dark clouds had begun to sputter, and Joshua, my five-year-
old, was out meandering around the cove barefooted like
the village idiot. I just shook my head.
As Kailey loped down the front yard I watched Joshua
turn, lean defiantly into the wind, and set his jaw like flint.
"She won't be able to turn him," I thought. Sure enough,
she spoke her piece, stomped angrily, and huffed back up
the yard to the house to tattle. It was a well traveled road.
As Kailey began to dispose her sentiments regarding
my role as parent she was soundly interrupted with a shrill
squawking akin to that of the dying squawk of a Mexican
Seagull. We exchanged looks. The sound was coming up
the front steps. It was Joshua. "I didn't do it..." Kailey
began as Joshua flung open the door. He bopped on in with
a big smile on his face, still whooping like a rabid crane.
"What's wrong with you boy?" I said, "Don't you know
we got neighbors?" I reached to cover his mouth, but he
wrestled free. "Daaaddy!" He cried, looking at me like I
was the idiot. He shook himself off, took a deep breath, and
promptly went back to hollering.
"Josh!" I lamented, "What are you doing?" He leveled
on me with a fierce look of righteous indignation and said
boldly, "I'm JOSHUA daddy. I walked 'round 'dem big
walls a Jer'co. Now I'm shouting em' down!"
I should've known. Since he's been old enough to tote
a trumpet I've been tooting his horn and telling him about
the Joshua of the Bible, and he's mighty eager to live up
to his moniker. When we go on family walks, he insists on
being out front. Why? He's Joshua, fearless leader of God's
people. He loves his name. I overheard him thanking God
for it the other day.
Of course, one of the biggest fellows I ever met was
called "Tiny." So I understand if you don't put much

stock in names. In and of itself, a name is just a label.
Yet oftentimes names do hold significance, especially for
those searching for their identity in this world. Behold the
countenance of a child who's been called disparaging names;
watch how often they grow up to become exactly what
they've been dubbed.
If you've been called hurtful things I encourage you to
spend some quiet time with Jesus. Look deep into His eyes,
and listen to what He calls you; behold the true reflection of
what He has called you to be. Thank goodness for guidance
counselors, moms, dads, pastors and prophets; but their
lengthiest opinions and loudest commands could never undo a
single word whispered from the lips of the Lord.
God has never been opposed to changing people's names
,mid stream either- Abram to Abraham, Sarai to Sarah, Simon
to Peter, Saul to Paul just to recall a few. He used these new
titles to challenge these men and women to begin to see
themselves differently. These new names raised the bar of
their expectations and gave each of them a glimpse into what
God saw regarding their character.
It's only in the Lord that we find our true identity anyhow.
Did you know He already has a special new name picked out
for you if you will trust Him? To him that overcometh will
I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white
stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man
knoweth saving he that receiveth it. Revelations 2:17 KJV
But anyway- Recently, after reading the Bible, my girl
Kailey decided she wants me to start calling her Esther.
I don't know about that, but apparently she sees herself
as a beautiful young godly Queen who the Lord has
raised up to help save His people. Amen! That's exactly
the way I see her. I know it's the way her heavenly Dad
does.

The program teaches the basic skills of reading to the
high school students who would not normally want to!
participate in such rudimentary learning, according to
Chiefland High School teacher Fadaya Williams. She
said this program creates teachers out of struggling
students, giving them incentive to learn what they may
otherwise be too ashamed to admit they don't know.
Phoebe Papati assisted two of her Bronson High r
School students in their demonstration of Buddy
Tutoring. Kneisha Means and Ashley Schuenemann st
in front of the board as they quizzed the members on
some of the drills they use as they tutor kindergarteners
and first graders. The board members laughed at ,,
themselves as some performed better than others.
It ( 11 , 1 1. 1 I -
Students also learn to teach reading strategies such.-
as predicting what a story is about,, anticipating what'.
will happen, and phonics. Upon concluding a book,
the young readers apply their knowledge by writing
a letter, making a sculpture out of sand, or drawing a
picture about their favorite part of the story, Papati sail.
The Buddy program has proven successful in helping
elementary students learn to read at grade level. More
than 50 percent of kindergartners participating in
the program read on level and no longer needed the
extra instruction given by their high school buddies
after one semester. Students were evaluated through;'
standardized testing.
Such success means that other struggling students
can be admitted to the program to receive help while
simultaneously helping their high school buddies
master reading skills, said Williams.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, February 14 at
the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was a busy day.
We had 12 members and 25 visitors. Sheriff Johnny
Smith was a guest and he honored all the ladies with
candy. It's always a great time when he comes to visit
and we all know he does a great job. :
We had visitors all week; Canada, Nova Scotia,
Illinois, Michigan and other places. We can't blame
them for getting out of all the snow and cold. We
meet so many quilters and it's always great to find out
about their quilts and crafts. We are always printing ,
patterns for them to take back home.
Our trip to Tampa was great except that it rained
all the way home. The traffic on Interstate 75 was
bumper to bumper coming south. The driver said they
were coming down to get warm.
Derick and six boys were out Wednesday. They
planted lettuce, cracked and shelled pecans, hung
pictures outside, watered plants on the porch, potted
tomatoes in big pots for us to sit by the porch steps.
Thanks, Lancaster.
We want to thank the Sheriff's office for sending
some one to patrol the museum. It makes us feel
better.
Lunch was plentiful with chicken and dumplings,
cabbage, mustard, corn bread, biscuits, beans, corn
casserole, lots of salads, pumpkin loaf, cookies, lots
of cakes and so much more.

Ann Williams Planas Dedication Ceremony Set


STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR
The Williston High School Fast Pitch Softball Boosters
Club officers, present team members and the citizens
of Williston will pay honor to Ann Williams Planas at a
monument dedication ceremony on Saturday Feb. 23, at 2
pm.
The ceremony will take place where the beautiful three-
foot ground mounted marble monument has been installed
at the Williston Lady Red Devils softball, field located
behind the Williston Elementary School.
The monument was purchased with donations from
businesses in Williston and friends and fans of the Red
evil softball program.
Just who was Ann Williams Planas? Growing up in
Williston, Ann Williams was a stand-out softball player for
the Williston Lady Red Devils, where she started on the
high school varsity team as an eighth grader.
Williston head coach Robert Patterson, who is still the
head coach of the Lady Red Devils starting his 29th season,
remembers her well. Ann made some outstanding plays in
the field that Patterson can still remember.
She was all conference three of her five seasons at
Williston, and fans remember her for her tremendous
hitting and her overall knowledge of the game.


During her senior year at Williston, Amnn was a member
of the under-18 Jacksonville Astros and helped them win
a National Championship in 1988. She was offered a full
scholarship to play softball for Nicholls State University
in Thibodaux, La. She went on to become an All-
Conference shortstop, leading her team to two conference
championships, while obtaining a degree in Math
Education.
After her graduation in 1994, Ann became a math teacher
at Galaxy Middle School in Deltona. She gave up her love
of teaching to try out for the Colorado Silver Bullets all-
female professional baseball team. She made the team and
played second base and pitcher, where she recorded 23
strikeouts in 21 innings pitched for the Bullets. She would
usually bat in the clean-up spot.
The Silver Bullets would compete against men's teams
at various levels. After their winning season in 1997 the
Bullets lost their corporate sponsor and disbanded.
Ann Williams went back to her first love of teaching.
For five years she taught math and coached softball at
Berkmar High School in Gwinnett County, Ga. She guided
her teams to four State AAAA tournaments in five years.
She moved on to coach softball at Georgia Southwestern

Lady Indians Resume

Winning Ways Against

Newberry
DAVID LEACH
FOR THE JOURNAL

Coach Wayne Weatherford was a little concerned as \\e talked before th
game started. His teams are
accustomed to winning.
The Chiefland Lady
Indians were coming off an
uncharacteristic loss to Bell, and
it was hard to find a smile from
the coach, even during the team
picture.
A junior varsity win by the
Indians 9-12 helped.
Then the varsity game was
underway, and the Lady Indians
led most of the way and won 6-4.
The Newberry Lady

he got it. The Lady Indians played most of their first inninwith thebases
and threatened to break the game wide open at
the start.
The Lady Panthers buckled down with timely
strike outs and an infield pop up, allowing the
Lady Indians only one run.
In the second inning, Lady Indians' catcher
Hagan Lewis threw out a Lady Panther trying
to steal second base, serving notice that second
base was not a freebie.
Lady Indian Kateland Allen was the highlight
of the second inning as she got on board with 'A

Arrington highlighted the fourth inning

The Lady Panthers came back in the '-
fifth inning with some sharp hitting to
score three runs, making a run at the
Lady Indians.
On a game turning call, Coach
Weatherford noticed the Lady Panther
coach helping the runner get back to
third base. He pointed this out to the
home plate umpire. After an umpire !
conference, the Lady Panther runner at .
third was called out.
The Lady Indians took care of one out
at a time to preserve the win as the Lady

Coach Weatherford smiled as the

Lady Red Devils Slam Dixie County 15-1
STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR


After a scoreless first inning and falling behind 1-0,
the Lady Red Devils started their move over the Lady
Bears in their season opening District game.
With the bases loaded, Lady Red Devil Kayla
Thorrington blasted a triple past everyone clearing the
bases and was held at third by Coach Patterson.
Thorrington later scored as did three more Lady Red
Devils to take a 7-1 lead over the Lady Bears.
The third inning spelled more trouble for the Lady
Bears as the Lady Red Devils put on a hitting clinic in
the third inning putting the game out of reach for the
Lady Bears. Freshman pitcher Tori Stamper shut the
Lady Bears out in their fourth and fifth inning at bat,
to mercy-rule the games early stoppage.
In the third and decisive inning, freshman Kene'
Mincey led off with a single, followed by a double
by freshman Crissy Rawls. Freshman Dayna Hunn
slammed a triple down the third base line scoring both
Mincey and Rawls, putting the Lady Red Devils ahead
9-1.
Margaret Brown walked and surprised the Lady
Bears as she kept going to second base as the Lady
Bears made no play on Brown. Heather Porter hit a
slow dribbler to the third baseman and beat out the late
throw to first base loading the bases.
Laurrin Howard hit a sharp single up the middle


scoring two more runs putting the Lady Red Devils
ahead, 11-1.
Samone Cannady walked, loading the bases again
for the Lady Red Devils.
Kayla Thorrington continued her hot hitting streak
as she served up a double, scoring three runs to put the
Lady Red Devils ahead, 14-1.
Kene' Mincey, who led off the third inning, was
back up to bat and was hit by a pitch. Crissy Rawls
slapped a double scoring Mincey, as the Lady Red
Devils went up 15-1.
Dayna Hunn was then hit by another pitch loading
the bases, before the Lady Red Devils were finally
called for their third out of the inning.
The Lady Red Devils had scored 15 runs on 13 hits
in just two innings at bat.
Lady Red Devils pitcher, freshman Tori Stamper
threw another outstanding game holding the Lady
Bears to just 3 base hits in their five innings at bat,
The Lady Red Devils are now 1-0 in District play.
Freshman Crissy Rawls was 3-4 at the plate, while
freshman Laurrin Howard was 2-3 with a walk. All
State center fielder Margaret Brown and first baseman
Heather Porter were both 2-3 with each having a walk.
Lady Red Devil third baseman Kayla Thorrington was
2-4 with 7 RBIs on the night.


The Lady Red Devil junior varsity team played the
Lady Bears junior varsity to a 3-3 tie before the game
was called due,to the time limit rule. Again, it was
Lady Red Devil Devin Dominaco pitching a very good
game for the Lady Red Devils.

Red Devils Continue


Their Season with a 67-29


Regional Win
STEVE JARBOE
SPORTS EDITOR

After winning their first
district championship in ..
13 years, first year Head .
Coach Dave Vespignani,
guided his very young
Williston Red Devils to a
regional quarterfinal win
over the Interlachen Rams
67 29.
The young Red Devils r
came out strong and fast,
jumping out to a 15-2 lead
before the Rams called a
time out to try and slow
down the obviously more
talented young Red Devils. Journal photo by Steve Jarboe
Just how young is this Senior Devin Timmons leads his Red Devil team out to
team of Williston Red the floor.
Devils? Next season there
will not be a senior on the team.
The Red Devils' coach played nine different players in the first quarter, and
continued going to his bench in the second quarter.
The Red Devils played eleven different players in a lopsided first half that saw
the Red Devils take a 41-15 lead at the halftime break.
At the five-minute mark of the second quarter, the Red Devils were whistled for


The Red Devils defense moves to the ball in unison.


their tenth personal team foul to zero fouls called against the Rams. A Red Devil
fan hollered out that the Red Devils had more personal fouls than the Rams had
points as the score was 31 to 9 in favor of the Red Devils.
It was not until the 4:18 mark of the second quarter that the officials called the
first personal foul against the Rams.


Ann Williams Planas continued from page 7


State University where she compiled
three GAC Conference Championships.
Ann was named GACC and Region
XIII Coach of the year after the
2001 season. Ann also attained her
Master's Degree in math education
that same year.
Ann Williams married Martin
Planas in 1999 and they had two
children, Ryan and Angelina. Ann
was an intensely devoted wife and
mother.
The Memorial Dedication should
be inspiring to every young lady
who participates at the Williston
softball complex; to set their goals
high and aspire to become something
they might have thought was
impossible, as Ann did.
SAnn Williams Planas is the
vepitorhe of this sentiment. A small
tpwn girl and tremendous athlete
re neq a college degree with her
taJent Oad went on to become a
p rfessional athlete being paid
fo ee Athletic talents. She was a
te ch4r, a championship coach and
ea '~d'a place in the "Diamond
Dr ams" Women in Baseball exhibit
in te National Baseball Hall of
,Famre in Cooperstown, N.Y.
Ann and her husband, Martin, moved the family back to the Atlanta area, where
she caught math at Austin Middle School and Stockbridge High School until the
effects of her cancer treatments forced her to retire.
Ari was diagnosed with cancer in 2003, and passed away on February 6, 2006
following a courageous three-year battle. ,


Besides her husband and children, Ann has been survived by her parents, Ray and
Pat Williams of Williston, who continue to come to the Wil ston softball field every
game the Lady Red Devils play.
Ray and Pat also present a monetary scholarship to a Red Pevil senior softball
player in' their daughter's name at the school's softball awards\banquet each year. I
have gotten to know Ray and his wife Pat the last two seasons, nd they are two of
the finest people you could know.
From everything I have read and information I have gathered Ann Williams
Planas, she\was a friend to everyone and left us much too soon. SSne was a mother,
wif*,i daughter, sister; teacher, professional baseball player, and a c ampionship
coachathisvmral leivls. Ann Williams Planas.is certainly missed by lher.faniily;-.
friends and everyone who knew her.
The monunient in her honor will keep the memory of Ann WilliamsPlanas alive
at every Lady d Devils softball game. \

The Red Devils block out under the boards for the rebound.


This was truly a game that the Rams were never in.
With his starters on the bench for nearly the entire third quarter, the Red Devils
outscored the Rams 18-4 to blow the game wide open, putting the game clock to
continuous run.
The Red Devils took a 59-19 lead at the end of the third quarter.
The Red Devils went on to win 67-29, to move into the regional final game.
They will face, for the fourth time this season, the PK Yonge Blue Wave.
The Blue Wave beat Union County 52-41 to advance.
The two teams split during the regular season and the Red Devils got the best of
the Blue Wave just last week to win the district championship.
Now it's on to the fourth match-up of the season, the third in less than three
weeks for these two outstanding teams.
The Red Devils again displayed a balanced unselfish scoring attack. Deonte
Welch had 18 points, Isaac Floyd had 11 points, Carlton Wilcox added 10 points
for the three players in double figures. The Red Devils had 11 players reach the
scoring column for the game.
Darminquell Williams led the Rams with 9 points and Tamarich Williams had 6
points.

Hi! Here I am again. Just like a bad penny,

saleing, that is. No, I didn't have a yard sale. I
just visited with the others who did.
A good weekend of visiting and a friend and I had lunch
at Bett's'Truck Stop in Chiefland where I used to work as
a waitress. 10 pm 'til 6 a.m. Those were the days. Long
ago and far away. I met many good friends while working
there; many who have gone on to their reward in Heaven! I
don't know if I retired or just got tired. But I'm just lazing

REAL ESTATE FRAUD


Due to the economy slowing down the
Federal Reserve System has met and made
two significant rate cuts: three-quarters of
percentage point at an emergency meeting
followed by- a half a point eight days later in
2008. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve
System, Ben Bernanke and Treasure Secretary,
Henry Paulson is predicting .the U.S. will
avoid a recession. With the real estate market
at a slow down I want to talk about real estate
fraud schemes.
The first form of fraud is the foreclosure
bailout. These homeowners or victims have
negative equity, also known as "upside down"
and owe more money on their home's mortgage
than the home is worth. They're caught -in a
dire strait situation and must sell their home at
a loss or let their mortgage company foreclose
on their home A so called "bailout specialist"
offers the victim a short sale. In this form of
4taud the,.homeowner will be told that, for a
.'$;1,000 i $2O,500 fee, they dadr deed their Home
to the bailout specialist and then rent it back.
The bailout specialist takes the money, does not
arrange the short sale 'and does not make any
payments on the mortgage. The ending result
is that victim is evicted, the home is foreclosed
and the specialist makes money.
Use caution when using your home equity for
a home improvement loan. Salespersons may
offer to refinance your home at a lower interest
rate to provide cash for home improvements
or to pay off bills. Victims may be asked to
sign 'blank contracts or not allowed time to
read the contracts before they sign. Later, the
homeowner discovers that terms have been
changed, including the interest rate.
Thinking about renting? Con artists will rent
out a home that they do not even own. They
find a vacant abandoned house, enter the home
to change the locks and put it up for rent The
con artist then collects the first and last months
rent, with a security deposit. The con artist
disappears with your money.
Timeshares is another deception that con
artists use to swindle an unsuspecting victim.
Con artists may make oral promises that are
omitted. from the written contract. They may
also fail to mention fees and obligations that
are in the written contract, which are never
mentioned orally. These misrepresentations
might be discovered at the contract signing,
however would be downplayed by the sales
person as only "legal jargon".
Although fraud is not a physical injury, many
victims of con artists suffer by great emotional
harm by losing their financial security, family
home, business, inheritance, retirement
savings and/or their professional or personal
credibility
If you have concerns about real estate deals,
please seek a good real estate attorney before
signing on the dotted line. If you feel you have
been a victim of a crime contact your local law
enforcement agency. Be safe, think smart and
do not be a victim from con artists.

Bit is up on the head rest and Sweet Pea is on the left
of me on the chair arm. Sugar is on the foot rest and
Baby Doll is just as close as she can get, her head
resting on my lap! True love? You better believe it is.
And yes, I love them too. But Baby Doll is so small
she rides with me where and whenever I go. She really
is a baby doll. Thanks again, Bob and Kathy, she really
is a bundle of love.
Today is my ex's birthday, so happy birthday, honey.
I hope you have a good day and many more to come.
May God bless you always.
I just had a cup of hot chocolate so now I'll finish'
this and take it to the Journal and make my rounds:
post office, A&A Restaurant and Dollar Store and visit
with friends, both black and white.
Until next time, God Bless.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED
RULES:
Southwest Florida Water
Management District, Chapters
40D-1, 40D-3 and 40D-4, Florida
Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
Summary of Proposed Rules:
40D-1 Procedural:
The amendment to 40D-
1.002, F.A.C., will delegate
authority from the Governing
Board to designated staff to act
on requests for variances and
waivers to Chapters 40D-21,
F.A.C., Water Shortage Plan,
and 40D-22, F.A.C., Year-Round
Water Conservation Measures.
The delegation will streamline the
variance and waiver processes
under those rule chapters. The
rulemaking will add the Demand
Management Coordinator and
the Water Use Permit Program
Director as staff authorized to
grant variances and waivers
and will also update the titles of
staff positions already delegated
authority to act on requests for
variances and waivers from both
rules, remove the reference to
the Assistant Executive Director
(a position that no longer exists)
and replace the reference to
the Records and Data Director
with one for the head of the
department that Records and
Data has been merged into
(Regulation Performance
Management).
The amendments to 40D-1.659,
FA.C., incorporate several


forms into District rules. The
amendments adopt by reference
two forms used by the District
in the review of applications for
water well construction permits.
A form requesting additional
information for applications to
construct a public supply well
will be adopted. An existing form
used to confirm whether a water
use permit is required for wells
to be constructed within the Most
Impacted Area of the former
Eastern Tampa Bay Water
Use Caution Area is renamed
to reference the Southern
Water Use Caution Area.

Old-Fashioned Bed Turning to be Featured


at Antique Quilt Show


' An old-fashioned bed turning will be held at the
Suwannee Valley Antique Quilt Show on March
15, 2008 in.Trenton. A bed turning is a means of
introducing quilters and non-quilters to the beauty
of antique and vintage quilts in an unusual way. A
',bed is set up and many layers of quilts are placed
:.on it. As each quilt is turned back another beautiful
antique quilt is revealed. Each quilt has a story,
whether it is a double wedding ring made in the 50s
for a lucky bride or a grandmother's flower garden
quilt made in the 1920s or even a late 1800s crazy
quilt; as the quilts are revealed, their story is told.
:This presentation is reminiscent of how our pioneer
grandmothers in Florida and elsewhere must have
turned the quilts back on their bed to show their
',friends the beautiful quilts made by the-women in
,.their family.
Other quilt related demonstrations will also be
underway throughout the Antique Quilt show including
spinning, rug making, an old-fashioned quilting bee as
-well as a tea party held during the Civil War era. The
'.backdrop for these demonstrations will be the beautiful
,antique and vintage quilts, which will be hanging
outdoors on both sides of Main Street. The historic
Trenton Railroad Depot will serve as headquarters for
this festival. Several quilt collections will be displayed
there including a collection of antique redwork quilts
and a collection of crazy quilts made around the turn
of the century. Utilitarian quilts which were made .for
warmth and beautiful Victorian quilts that were made
to show off the fancy needlework of the quilt maker
will be on display also. Feed sack quilts that were made
by our frugal great-great grandmothers who collected
these colorful sacks to use in their quilts and to make
clothing for their families will also be brought out of
the closet for and airing and displayed at this festival.
As much history of the original quilt maker as possible
will be collected and displayed with each quilt. Well
over one hundred antique and vintage quilts will be on
display during the festival.
The Suwannee Valley Antique Quilt Festival is
scheduled for Sat., March 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Other highlights of the day include antique cars,
far ner's n r qj ,, y .antiqe-.bacoths; clogging,.hand
scissor sharpening and a quilting boutique. Everyone
is invited to come out and be a part of the first antique
quilt festival held in our area. There is no admission
charge for this event.
This event is sponsored by the City of Trenton, the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce and several
other local businesses and several civic groups and
quilting groups. For more information about this event
or to be a part of this festival by adding your antique
and vintage quilts to the festival please call Stephanie
Metts or Lois Scott at (352) 463-3842.
