Williston abolishes



Airport Committee


By Kellie Parkin
Staff Writer

The Airport Committee has become its own entity, "empowering itself with all aspects
of the airport," said Jerry Robinson Williston Council vice-president. Last week, Robinson
motioned for the Airport Committee to be abolished and for the ordinance to be changed.
The Williston City Council passed the motion in a divided 3-2 decision Feb. 19.
Robinson's reasons included too much time spent in regular city council meetings on
issues already addressed in committee meetings, and too much decision-making liberty taken
by Airport Committee members.
Robinson said there have been discussions by committee members with individual entities
who have or want leases, as well as interference with other issues concerning the operation
of the airport and industrial park. Such issues fall under the city manager's authority and not
the committee's.
"It's totally out of order," he said. "This gives the appearance that some members of
the Airport Committee are trying to act like an Airport Authority instead of an Airport
* Committee."
Robinson acknowledged that the city manager, who is also the airport manager, is by
charter the authoritative body:regarding all administrative duties concerning the airport.
"The Committee has no power to proceed with the administration of the airport or the
industrial park," he said.
Council president Debra Jones, who is also chairman of the Airport Committee,
shouted "Sunshine!" to the council immediately after James Cason seconded the motion for
abolishment. Jones was referring to Florida State Sunshine laws that forbid communication

Chiefland City Commission


debates standards for growth


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Most everyone agrees that Chiefland's future, in terms of steady, responsible growth,
will rely heavily on reasonable standards for new development, particularly guidelines for
architecture and landscaping.
Just how stringent those standards should be, however, has been the source of considerable
discussion.
The topic took center stage during the regularly-scheduled meeting of the City Commission
Monday at City Hall.
Bruce Day, planning director of the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council, began the
discussion the third such discussion on the issue this month by city officials with a detailed
slide presentation and accompanying video. The presentation included photos depicting a wide
variety of architectural and landscaping styles from around the state, with added commentary
on why those choices worked-or did not work in their respective communities.
WRPC, working on a grant from the Florida Department of Community Affairs, has been
tasked by the city to complete a comprehensive plan by June 1.
Day offered his personal opinion on what might work for Chiefland, and then asked
commission members for their assistance in setting standards for new developers to follow.

Education board approves evolution 'theory'

After months of public input the State Board of Education voted 4-3 Feb.
19 to approve an optional revised version of Science Sunshine State Standards
regarding Charles Darwin's evolutionary concepts.
The revision will require the concepts be included under the auspices of
"theory of evolution," rather than as an accepted fact.
Scientists and educators had originally proposed that high school students
be taught: "Evolution is the fundamental concept underlying all of biology
and is supported by multiple forms of scientific evidence."
Prior Sunshine State Standards adopted in 1996 did not address evolution
by name at all; only concepts of evolution such as "change over time" and
"competition for resources" were addressed.
The revised version adopted by the state also obligates teachers to teach
the "scientific theory,of" atoms, cells, electromagnetism and plate tectonics.
Previous curriculum taught many of these subjects without the preface of
"theory."
The Department of Education received an outpouring of public comment
on the new standards. More than 10,000 people posted on-line approximately
260,000 ratings on individual concepts of the curriculum, and included more
than 20,000 comments. Additionally, public sentiment was strong at the five
public meetings held in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Miramar and Orlando with
hundreds of people participating.
The School Board of Levy County sent a unanimously endorsed letter
opposing the teaching of evolution as fact to the State Board Jan. 22.
Prior to the Feb. 19 vote, two hours were set aside to address additional


public input on the proposal.
Once a push for inclusion of "Intelligent Design" in the science curriculum
was seen as unobtainable, religious conservatives were especially vocal about
adding the words, "Evolution Theory" to the standards.
Dr. Eric .Smith, Commissioner of Education, said there was an
"overwhelming level of public feedback for this revision process."
The evaluation of Florida Science Standards was set in motion by a
combination of factors, including legislation, sub-par performance on national
tests and persistent demographic gaps.
House Bill 7087 legislates the "periodic reviews of standards to ensure
adequate rigor, relevance, [and] logical student progression."
The Fordham Institute evaluated Florida's science standards in 2005 and
gave the curriculum an "F." The curriculum passed only in the categories of
seriousness: 96 percent, and organization and inquiry: 67 percent. Florida
flunked in the categories of evolution: zero percent, quality: 20 percent,
content: 41 percent and expectations: 52 percent. The overall assessment of
the science standards scored 48 percent.
Florida students rank well below the national average for college bound
high school graduates in the science portion of the ACT. Scores for Florida
students the past five years have seen a steady decline. Whereas the national
average science score has remained steady, hovering around 21, Florida
students have fallen from a high of 20 in 2003 to 19.5 in 2007.
The United States is ranked behind China, Iran, Mexico and Japan in
producing college graduates in science and engineering.
The new science standards to be measured on the FCAT are designed
to improve Florida student's national and global standing, according to the
Department of Education.

Cason asked for an explanation, saying he took
offense at the accusation.
Jones responded "You heard me. And you should
be offended." Jones claimed that Cason "responded
too quickly" with seconding the motion and that he
must have heard the prepared statement before.
"This same item was on the agenda two weeks ago
but was tabled until last night," Robinson stated in an
email the following day. "By making her allegations
it seems [Jones] forgot that it had been on the agenda.

The ordinance change must go through a public

Councilmember Cal Byrd, who is also a
member of the Airport Committee, voted against the
abolishment along with Jones. "I respect the vote of

"Maybe is not an architectural style that we are after,
but it is a look and a feel that reflects the city of Chiefland's
heritage and future," he said. "One of the things I need for
the city commission to give me direction on is how far in a
regulatory manner do we need to go."
Commission members in attendance offered plenty of
suggestions, as did a number of representatives from the local
community.
Commissioner Teresa Barron spoke of possible incentives
given to business owners to persuade them to conform to
consistent styles.
"Maybe we could give them a little bit of a break on taxes,
or some kind of incentive to make their storefront conform to
that area's architectural design," she said. "I do not like to
put a whole lot of burden on them. It is already hard enough
to make a dollar. But I think we can find a happy medium
between business an4d,being able to make downtown and
north of town look good."
Mayor Teal Pomeroy ,said adequate, incentives already
exist for new business owners without having to lower taxes.
"We have the economic development zone there are
some incentives there," he said.
"The nice thing about having a commercial hub in your
town is that you can reduce the tax burden on your residents.
We are going to have a bunch of commercial businesses and
they are going to be paying a fair amount of taxes."


Regardless of whether incentives are offered or not, said
local businessman Stoney Smith, some guidelines must be in
place, or the city will begin to take on the less-than-favorable
attributes of other area towns.
"If we don't watch what we are doing we are going to
be just like Homosassa and Crystal River," he said. "It is just
anything and everything, and a hodgepodge in between. We
need to make sure that ... we get some conformity in the
growth areas, and don't just let the. growth come to us."
Fellow businessman Bill Martin agreed, adding that the
best way to achieve conformity is through strict guidelines.
"My personal feelings are that we need to distinguish a
few designs," Martin said. "When someone comes to town,
we can say that 'These are the accepted architectural designs
and you can choose one of the above.'"
Martin added that standards for architectural design and
landsc,apingshoq4ld.beade areqgirqeent fpr ~p developers
to adhere to, and -not merely as a suggestion.- -
"I don't think we, can say-we.encourageryou to do thatT
he said. "If that is the case, then we are wasting our time.
Then they can come in and do whatever they like."
Day concluded the meeting with a request for further
discussions on the subject.
"I would like the opportunity to come back and have
more of the community discussions we have had," he said.
"This is the kind of stuff that charges a planner's battery."

Perhaps it


's


time for more balanced coverage


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Nov. 3, 1979.
Until very recently, that was the last time I saw
Chiefland. We boarded a high school bus that day and made
the trip from Jasper to Levy County. My Hamilton County
Trojans were to play the Chiefland Indians in an important
Division 2A football game, and we felt good about our
chances of coming out on top.
Three hours later, we were heading back to Jasper with
our tails between our legs, having suffered a 21-13 defeat
at the hands of the home team. For various reasons most
notably a 22-year stint in the U.S. Air Force it took me
more than 28 years to make it back to this town, and to this
county.
Having been gone that long, you can imagine my
surprise at the stunning transformation Chiefland has made.
What a vibrant community this has become. (Perhaps it was


before, but it is not the kind of thing a high school senior
notices, particularly when there is football involved.)
It's good to be back in North Florida, and it's an honor
to be the editor of Levy County's weekly newspaper, The
Levy County Journal.
It is our goal to offer a balanced approach to the news
- a concept that seems lost from time to time among the
corporate giants that control the print and broadcast media
of the 21st century. We will give you the view from the right,
and the view from the left, and will do so without the thinly-
veiled bias that accompanies much of what you read and
hear elsewhere. We will give you the facts from both sides
and stop there without some hidden agenda attempting to
steer you to one side or the other.
Innovative? Certainly. Fair? Absolutely.
We will do our best to inform you of the key issues that
affect your lives the most, and, hopefully, we can entertain
you along the way. Inform and entertain, but not persuade.
That is our goal, week in, week out.


What can you do to help? When you see news happen,
or hear about it, give us a call. We'll grab a pad of paper and
a camera, and make sure the event gets documented, so that
everyone in Levy County can become better informed.
When someone in your family does something
exceptional, let us know about it. When they succeed in
school, or in business, or in their personal lives, we want to
know, and be among the first to pat them on the back.
Got a son or daughter in the military? Send us their
picture and tell us where they are and what they do for our
great country. We'll pass that word along so that all of Levy
County. can take pride in their important work.
Finally bagged that eight-point? Send us a picture, and
we will let the world know you are a hunter to be reckoned
with.
In short, we are here to serve you and your informational
needs. Let us be your hometown newspaper, and we will
go the extra mile to give you a product the Levy County
community can be proud of.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL,


Take your lines from the Good Book


My growling stomach told me it was time to
rendezvous for lunch. I ratcheted myself down the tree,
slung my rifle over my shoulder, and checked my compass
headings before making my trek back.
At the truck there was no sign of my hunting partner, F '
Joe. I didn't bother to wait. I flipped the tailgate down
and went to gnawing on my baloney sandwich. He'd
understand. We were just teenagers. We didn't waste much ":
time on trivial things like manners in those days. Besides, H
who knew when Joe would come trudging in? "He'd better
hurry," I thought, eyeing his lunch sack.
My morning had been another in a long line of
disappointing trips to those over-
crowded government woods. It was
hard hunting, and dangerous too. BUT ANYW AY
Weekend warriors from the city had Gu E. Sheffield
tromped under my stand all morning and only one of them was wearing
hunter orange. Two were hunting with military style assault rifles! I'm surprised they didn't
have hand grenades hanging from their vests. No wonder the deer had all headed for the
hills. It just wasn't safe out here anymore.
Little Joe, as he was known, soon came slipping up the logging road. We called him
little Joe mostly because he was little, and his name was Joe, and because he looked a lot
like Michael Landon. Other than that, I'm not sure where we got it.
Thankfully, I spotted him just before he caught me sniffing around on his lunch sack.
"You see anything?" I asked.
Little Joe angrily un-shouldered his rifle and huffed, "Nah! But I jumped one over
toward some lucky doofus down near the creek." Oddly, he snickered before adding, "He's
hauling it in now."
Not long after a big ole' goofy corn fed looking fellow came around the bend. He was
dragging a most unfortunate little deer by the horns. I hopped down and walked over to see.
I even offered him a hand hauling it the last few yards. It was a good thing. The big guy
looked close to cardiac arrest.

It was nearly a full minute before he was able to get his breath back enough to rehash
the story of his kill, and boy was he excited. He went on and on. It must've been his first
deer. He was all smiles. Impressive, considering the fact little Joe must've walked right on
past him a few hundred yards back down the trail without offering to help.
I was making a mental note to work with little Joe on his manners when he hopped
down off the truck, wiped the mustard off his nose, and swaggered over to that big ox like he;
was just looking for trouble.
Eyeballing the little four point deer skeptically, little Joe scrunched up his nose like he
smelt a skunk, and looked straight up into the eyes of that big galoot. With a completely
contemptuous sneer he ripped, "I wouldn't even kilt that little ole' deer."
For a moment I thought 'Hoss' might just squash little Joe right there on the spot, but ,
I guess he was just too tuckered. He just stood there looking stupid. Little Joe, who, by the
way, had never killed a deer, finally shook his head smugly and walked back to snatch the
rest of his sandwich off my lips. Boy, little Joe was on a roll that day.
This whole Bonanza episode sort of reminds me of how I used to let the devil run little [
ole' temptations past me until I'd finally pull the trigger. Naturally that snake wouldn't lift
a finger to help me haul in the carcass either. Yet you can bet he'd be the first to jump up in
my face with a contemptuous sneer after I'd tuckered myself out. Boy was I a big doofus forj
listening to him!
Well, no longer. Even big doofuses learn to change the channel on the devil's sad old :
reruns. I don't listen to that liar anymore! Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt 4
good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of
God: I speak this to your shame. 1 Corinthians 15:33-34 KJV I'm doing my best to stay out |
of the shame game. I've given my heart to Jesus now.
But Anyway All this Cartwright talk just sort of registers with me I reckon, being a
former son of Adam and all. Clearly, the moral of this episode is to take your lines from the
Good Book. Accept the role you're offered as a faithful son or daughter, and stay real close
to Pa. Eventually His manners will begin to rub off on us so we can all be content with our ^
own sandwiches. Then one day we'll all hitch our horses up together in that big Ponderosa
in the sky.

Ann Williams-Planas was famous for her

athletic prowess, talent that took her far from the ballfields
of Levy County. But sports was just one aspect

of the bubbly, freckle-faced kid from Williston. Hers was a


By Rick Burnham
Editor

WILLISTON The on-field exploits of former Williston
softball player Ann Williams-Planas are legendary. Wildly
successful high school and collegiate careers, followed by
several seasons with the Colorado Silver Bullets an all-
female professional baseball team. And then on to coaching,
where she led her teams to unprecedented success.
But those who really knew Williams-Planas family
members, lifelong friends say her athletic prowess was
only one side of a remarkable young woman. Ann Williams-
Planas, they say, had an uncommon passion for every part of
her life, from sports, to academics, to her own husband and
children.
Dozens gathered at the Williston High School Softball
Field Saturday for the unveiling of a marble monument
dedicated to Williams-Planas, who passed away Feb. 6, 2006
following a three-year bout with Melanoma. Many fought
back tears as they spoke of a life taken much too soon, of a
young family left behind to carry on.
But there were smiles as well, prompted by vivid
memories of a bubbly and freckle-faced girl who lived every
day to the fullest.
Colleen Yarbrough, who joined parents Ray and Pat
Williams at the ceremony, said her sister had a natural zest
for life.
"She had this competitive spirit that came out in every
thing she did," Yarbrough said. "It was just part of her. She
had great perseverance. Great stamina. Great faith.",
Ray Williams agreed, adding that his daughter seemed to
have those traits from the very beginning.
"She was passionate about life from as far back as I
could remember," he said. "She had to be, because she spent
a lot of time playing ball with me and her big brother."
That brother, Mike, was unable to attend Saturday's
ceremony due to a work commitment. Williams-Planas'
husband and children, who live in Atlanta, were unavailable
as well.
A close-knit group of friends who were rarely apart
during a dozen years of school in Williston attended
Saturday's ceremony. Rhonda Gauthier, Trina Cason and
Garnet Andrews said they wanted to help honor the fourth
member of their group Ann Williams-Planas.
They spoke of the unique brand of mischief that four
young girls can get into, laughing and reminiscing about the
events of two decades ago.
"Ann had a great sense of humor," said Andrews. "She
loved to play jokes:'Sle loed i6'laugh?"
Gauthier agreed, adding that Ann was as genuine a
-person as you will ever meet.
0 "You always knew what you were going to get with her
;- she was very genuine," Gauthier said. "She was a delight
;to be around. Always uplifting. She always looked at the
,positive side of everything. Even near the end, when she was
,sick, she was always telling us that we would see her another
'day."
Most everyone agreed that, had Williams-Planas
been around to see Saturday's ceremony and the tribute
,to her accomplishments, she would have been somewhat
.,uncomfortable with all the attention.
"She would have been embarrassed," said Ray
'Williams. "She never once touted her abilities and her
accomplishments."
Andrews agreed, saying that her friend believed she was
just part of the team.
"She would be very humbled by today, by the attention
.that is being given to her," Aqdrews said. "She never focused
-on herself. She was a team player. On the field, and in life. A
'very passionate team player."


Passion

ISlow start dooms Williston in playoff action


,Red Devils battle back, but can't catch PK Yonge


-.By Steve Jarboe
i;.Sports Editor

Despite limiting PK Yonge's leading scorer to only 18 points, the Williston Red Devils fell
s.,,hort in their quest to advance in the state playoffs, losing 51-37 to the team from Gainesville
in boys high school basketball action Feb. 19.
The Red Devils picked the worse time of the season to have the basketball appear to go
flat, with each shot they took the first five minutes of the game.
The Blue Wave, on the other hand, had a hot hand, sinking 4 three-point baskets in the
First five minutes of the game.
To top things off the Blue Waves Autis Gibson sank another three-point basket from
near center court as the first quarter buzzer sounded to give the Blue Wave a 20-4 lead over
the Red Devils.
That score seemed out of place for a game between Williston and Pk Yonge. The two
teams had split during the regular season, and the Red Devils won the third match-up for the
District Title, just nine days earlier. In all three of those games, neither team led by more than
10 points.,
The Red Devils had the answer for the Blue Wave's leading scorer, Josh Snodgrass, and
held him to 18 points. Six of those were from the foul line in the closing minutes of the game.
In the District game Snodgrass poured in 32 points in a losing cause against the Red Devils.
Artis Gibson and Walade Wade made up the difference, scoring 17 and 10 points, respectively.
All of Wade's points came in the first half. The rest of the Blue Wave team accounted for just
6 total points.
The Red Devils lost this game early on as. the basketball simply refused to fall through
the basket. The Blue Wave quickly took advantage, leading by 20 points early in the second


quarter.
The Red Devils however did not go away as they held the Blue Wave to just two points
the last six minutes of the first half to pull to within 11 at 26-15.
The Red Devils eventually got to within five points of the visitors before the basketball
refused to fall through the basket.again on four straight trips down the court. The Blue Wave
held a 35-26 lead after three quarters of play.
Again the Red Devils made a run at the Blue Wave. Down by six points, freshman point
guard Paul King let go with a three point shot that hit every part of the rim and even tickled
the top of the net inside before bouncing out.
The Blue Wave called a time out and went into a game of keep away and the Red Devils
were forced to foul. They seemingly fouled the wrong players on every occasion, as Snodgrass
and Gibson made their free throws.
The Blue Wave went on to seal the win from the foul line to take a 14-point win
and advance to the Elite 8. The young Red Devil team, made up mostly of freshmen and
sophomores, will have to wait until next year, finishing 21-8 for the season and winning the
District Championship and the Regional quarterfinal game last week.
This was the first District Championship for the Red Devils in 13 years.
The young Red Devil team got a taste of sweet 16 play this season, and they will be even
more hungry next season with a team that will have no seniors.
CJ James had 8 points, Deonte Welch had 8 points, and James Hunt added 6 points.
There were three other Red Devils with 4 points each and one- with 3 points to round out the
scoring.
Congratulations to the Williston Red Devils for a great season and to their Coach Dave
Vespignani for a successful season. Under Coach Vespignani their success was measured in
many different ways besides wins and losses.

Bronson falls to Dixie

in extra inning baseball

By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

Dixie County scored twice in the seventh inning,
and added two more runs in the eighth to top Bronson
8-6 in boy's high school baseball action Feb. 21.
Bronson Eagles got off to a slow start in the game,
committing three errors and giving up four runs in the
top of the first inning.
Eagles Head Coach Mike Pogue called a time out
midway through the inning and brought sophomore
Kelby Barber to the mound. Barber had just joined the
team after finishing play with the Bronson basketball
team.
Barber threw more warm-up pitches than it took
the talented right hander to record three quick outs,
stopping the Bears in their tracks. It took Barber just
seven pitches, the last three being a strike out to end the
inning.
The Eagles responded in the bottom of the first
inning with two outs and runners on second and third
base.
First baseman Steve Wimberly, blasted a shot to
the fence scoring the two runners and winding up with
a double. Tyler Martensien then drove Wimberly home
with a base hit to right field that fell in the gap, pulling
the Eagles to within one run of the Bears as the first
inning ended.
Barber again took the mound in the second inning
for the Eagles and only had to face three batters for the
three outs.
After a Jake Williams lead off walk to begin the
bottom of the inning, and a balk sent him to second,
Luke Morrison singled to put runners on first and third.
The Eagles would eventually score two runs in the
second on a wild pick off throw to first base and an '
interference call against the Bears catcher.
After two complete innings the Eagles had clawed
their way into the lead 5-4 over the Bears. The Eagles
scored another run in the bottom of the third to take a
6-4 lead.
Barber was playing in his first game after just
joining the team from the Eagles Basketball team.
The teams played several even innings until the
Bears came to bat in the top of the seventh inning.
A couple of Eagles errors allowed the Bears to tie
the game at 6-6. When the Eagles could not answer in
the bottom of the seventh inning the game went to extra
innings.
,Barber was pulled from the game after he threw 80-
plus pitches in his first outing and the Bears were able to
again cash in on errors by the-Eagles to-win the-game in
the eighth inning 8-6.


Indians get past Trenton, 3


Junior varsity fares better


Photo and story by David Leach
For the Journal

The Indians started with a junior varsity thrashing of the
Trenton Tigers 13-2. The "10- run rule" was employed to end
the carnage.
The varsity game then started with the Indians winning
3-2 with some key plays late in the game.
Error, error, error, hit batsman and a baulk is not the way
Head Coach Kyle Parnell likes to start the game. But that is
what happened. Even during warm up, there were hints that
the Indians were not going to come out in synch. The Indians
were lucky to get out of the first inning with only two runs
scored against them.
After the first inning both teams played without highlights.
The Indians were anxious. They beat the Tigers like a drum
in previous meetings but could not find the handle this time.
Swinging at bad pitches, a little ahead of the pitch or a little
behind, it just was not happening.
Then in the sixth inning with one man on, Ory Pitts hit a
homer over the right centerfield fence that brought the home
crowd to their feet.
Suddenly, after trailing the entire game the score was tied
at two. The entire bench greeted Pitts at .the plate and they
returned to the dugout as one unit.
Jeremy Hayes pitched the entire game for the Indians.
He had a very strong sixth inning with two strikeouts and an
infield ground out. Coach Parnell decided to leave him in the
game to pitch the top of the seventh.
With Mike Perkins calling the signals behind the plate, he
concentrated and retired the side.
In the bottom of the seventh, Mayes took first base after
being hit by a pitch. Matt Williams was next with a key play


against


Shivers and Wasson discuss offensive strategy in the
fourth inning.
and took a base on balls. Daniel Gilpin showed the Indians
were finally on track and advanced the runners with a bunt.'
With the bases loaded and one out the Tigers tried to pick
off Hayes at third after a failed bunt attempt. An errant throw
sent the ball past third-into foul territory far enough to allow
Hayes to scamper home with the winning run.

Even though the Lady Indians junior varsity came up short 6-5 the Lady Indians varsity
never let up on the Trenton Lady Tigers and won 10-6. Chiefland never trailed the Lady
Tigers.
Aimee Biehl served notice that the Lady Indians were ready to play when she tripled
in the first inning, sending the ball to the fence. This was just a warm up for Biehl, who
finished the game 4-4 at the plate, with two RBI's, three stolen bases, two assists, and four
put-outs for the Lady Indians.
In the second inning, the Lady Indians scored five runs. Biehl, Amye Grieves, Brittany
Arrington, Brittany Davis and Brooke Williams all scored. Hagen Lewis helped the scoring
spree by loading the bases with a single.
The Lady Indians continued their hitting in the third inning as Biehl drove in another
run, and Jennesa Barrios drove iri another run for the Lady Indians. This gave them enough
runs to win; the score was Chiefland 8 Trenton 0 after three complete innings.
The Lady Tigers got two runs back in the fourth with a drive by Lady Tigers Casey
Fischer to the fence. Up to this point the Lady Tigers had been retired in a order by a
flawless Lady Indians defense.
Jo Hutchinson accounted for one of the few highlights for the Lady Tigers with a run
scoring drive to the fence in the sixth inning.
The Lady Indians kept pace and scored a couple of runs of their own in the late going
and preserved the win 10-6.


Howard brought both home with her big hit.
The Lady Red Devils added three more runs, on two hits
and two walks, in the second. Simone Cannady and Mandie
Lee drew walks to begin the inning, and both scored when the
Lady Indians misplayed a perfect bunt by Alniedra Graham.
Graham advanced to second on the error, and later scored oil
a base hit by Crissy Rawls.
Chiefland got its first base hit in the third inning. with
a single in the gap, but Lady Red Devil freshman catcher
Dayna Hunn threw the base runner out at second base as she
tried to steal.
The Lady Red Devils effectively put the game away
with 10 runs in the third inning. Rawls, Cannady, Hunn and.
Howard, along with Mandie Lee, Kayla Thorington, and:
Margaret Brown all collected hits in the inning. .'




sails past Bronson.


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

The Williston Boy's baseball team used four big scoring innings to roll to an easy, 10-3
win over visiting Bronson Friday.
The Williston bats came to life with two runs in the second inning and exploded for five'
more in the third to take a quick 7-0 lead.
The Eagles managed to score a lone run in the third inning as the Red Devils put in their
third pitcher of the game.
With a 7-1 lead going into the fourth inning the Red Devils scored two more runs on a,
bases loaded Carl Gilley blast to the centerfield wall. The Red Devils would have had another!
run had the base runner not have tripped rounding third and had to hold up, which held Gilley
to a double on a sure triple.
With the game in hand the Red Devils put in their fourth different pitcher in the sixth,
inning, Trip Fugate.
The Red Devils brought in short stop Damon Ming to the mound in the seventh. The Red
Devils gave up two unearned runs in the top of the seventh on walks.
The Red Devils travel to Newberry Friday before returning home Tuesday for a matchup:
with Dixie County.
Bronson Eagles close out the week with two consecutive road games, traveling to Dixie

Trenton tops Lady Eagles

Story and photo by David Leach
For the Journal

The Bronson Lady Eagles softball team got an inside the park home run from Sarah
House, and effective pitching from Brittany Shipp, but could not hold off the visiting Trenton
Lady Tigers, falling 5-2.
Bronson led the Lady Tigers for most of the game, but as the evening got colder so did the
home team. The Lady Tigers brought in fresh pitching in the fourth inning and saw their bats
heat up as well. This proved to be a winning combination.
B6th teams were vocal at the start and anxious to get started as the umpires were delayed
by a previous commitment. Shortstop Casey Hill got the early lead for the Lady Eagles with
a double past third base driving in the' first run.
Shipp then retired the side in order, staying ahead in the count with good control.
In the third, Alexis Burns made a nice throw to second, catching a Lady Tiger trying to
steal, and keeping the pressure on defensively. Lady Tiger Tara Viek returned the favor in
their half of the inning with a nice catch in centerfield to hold the Lady Eagles from scoring.
In the fourth, Shouse hit an inside the park homer (except for a couple of errors) and scored
to the delight of the home crowd. The Lady Eagles then loaded the bases and threatened to
break the game wide open, prompting a pitching change from the Lady Tigers. Vick took the
mound for the Lady Tigers after starting pitcher Amanda Sweiterman kept the Lady Tigers
close. She started out with a strikeout and cut short the Lady Bronson rally.
In the fifth, the Lady Tigers started to figure out the Lady Eagles pitching. Besides the
temperature getting colder, Shipp had already thrown a lot of pitches and was not as sharp as
she was earlier in the contest. The Lady Tigers were making more "ping" sounds with the bat
and got one run back.
The momentum of the game shifted to the Lady Tigers during the last three innings. Vick
was pitching strikes and the Lady Tigers were perfecting their timing at the plate. Trenton
scored the go ahead run in the sixth inning and added two more insurance runs in the seventh
for the 5-2 win.


Chiefland comes from behind to beat Hamilton, 9-7


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

Hagen Lewis drove in two runs with a sixth-inning hit to
propel Chiefland to a 9-7 win over Hamilton County Monday.
The Lady Trojans took a 1-0 lead in their first at bat
before Lady Indian pitcher Brittany Davis struck out two
straight batters to end the Lady Trojans threat of scoring more
runs.
The Lady Indians tied the game after one inning off a
lead off double by Amye Greives who scored after she stole
third and came home on the over throw trying to get her out.
As the second inning got underway the Lady Trojans left
runners on first and third as the inning ended.
The Lady Indians took a 3-1 lead as Cassie Labat drove
in two runs with a ball hit to the fence.
When the Lady Trojans came to bat in the top of the third
,r ;,


inning trailing 3-1, the Lady Trojans bats began to sound
off. Ping, ping, ping, the Lady Trojans had back to back -
to back base hits by Kendall Newsome, Kristen Parks and
Blake Daniels scoring three runs giving the Lady Trojans a
4-3 lead.
The Lady Indians could not answer in the bottom of the
third as the teams went to the top of the fourth inning with
Hamilton County holding a 4-3 lead.
The Lady Trojans stranded two base runners in the
fourth unable to score.
The Lady Indian bats opened up in the bottom of the
fourth as Brook Williams, and Amye Greives were on base
with two base hits. They both scored when Amie Beihl
blasted a triple down the third base line. Giving the Lady
Indians a 5-4 lead. Beihl scored on a single by Jennesa
Barrios before the side was retired.
The Lady Indians had retaken the lead 6-4 after four

The Lady Trojans were not finished yet by a long shot as
they scored one run in the fifth off of two base hits to close
the gap to 6-5.
The Lady Indians Brittany Davis started off the bottom
of the fifth with a double and scored on a Brooke Williams
single to put the Lady Indians up 7-5 with no outs.
A quick strike out and two straight pop fouls caught by
Lady Trojan catcher Robbielyn Roberts stopped the Lady
Indians threat of a big inning.
The Lady Trojans came to bat in the top of the sixth
inning. With base runners on second and third, Roberts
blasted a single scoring the two runs to tie the score at 7-7.
The Lady Indians came to bat in the bottom of the sixth
inning in a tie game, and got the big hit from Lewis to win.
The Lady Indians raised their season record to 3-2 and
the Hamilton County Lady Trojans fall to 1-3 for the season.

Sheriff's Office reports variety


of criminal activity in recent days

Recent days have seen considerable crime activity, according to officials from the Levy
County Sheriff's Office.
A 19-year-old Williston man was taken into custody Feb.
21 on a variety of charges, ranging from possession of crack
cocaine to battery on a law enforcement officer.
For his trouble, David Raymond O'Dell was booked
in the Levy County Jail on $230,000. He also received bite
marks, courtesy of a Levy County Sheriff's Office canine.
The altercation ensued after the U.S. Marshall's Service
and Levy County Sheriff's Office received word that O'Dell
might be in the Bronson area. O'Dell was being sought for
burglary while armed, four counts of aggravated assault,
possession of a short-barreled shotgun, and possession of a
firearm by a convicted felon. O'Dell
A traffic stop was conducted by Sgt. Zach Knight, who
identified the suspect as O'Dell. During the arrest, the suspect
punched Knight in the chest, and a fight ensued. K-9 Deputy
Willie Barnes arrived on the scene soon thereafter, and his
partner, K-9 Taz, went to work.
The suspect was quickly apprehended, and treated for his
injuries.
Meanwhile a former Florida resident is back in the state'
to answer to charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a child,
and one count of interference with child custody.
David Lawrence Emrick was brought Levy County Feb.
21 by representatives from the Levy County Sheriff's Office.
Law enforcement officials say Emrick encountered a Levy Emrick
County, underaged child through text messaging, and had the
victim leave her residence to hitchhike to Clanton, Ala.
Emrick is a convicted sexual offender. He was convicted _
for sexual battery on a child Sept. 30, 1991 while living in --
Collier County, Fla. '
Not to be outdone, a 62-year-old Inglis man was arrested
by Levy County Sheriff's Office deputies Sunday for domestic,
aggravated assault.
Deputies say Daniel Clark Boga, of 17790 S.E. 35 Court
in Inglis, had been drinking for much of the day and refused
to comply with their orders. Boga was subsequently placed on
the ground and put under arrest.
An investigation revealed that the defendant had threaten
to shoot another person with a 30-30 rifle, repeatedly pointing
the weapon at the victim's stomach. Deputies would later find Boga
10 more firearms in Boga's home, along with ammunition.
This was not Boga's first run-in with the sheriff's office. He had been arrested on Jan. 16
for possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession with intent to distribute, and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
Boga was transported to the Levy County Jail Sunday and held on a $7,500 bond.

Williston car club holds second show


Photo and story by Kellie Parkin
Staff Writer

"We just came in to town for breakfast and saw the
car show," said Bob Strickland, one of approximately
sixty participants in the Midtown Cruiser Car Show in
Williston Saturday. "We went home and got our son's
truck," he said.
Bob and his wife Margie Strickland, who reside
six miles outside of Williston, said they were excited
to stumble upon the show and glad that the weather
cleared up in time.
"This has been a real good turnout sixty cars,
and more than three-hundred people have been
through here," said Wayne Follin, co-founder of the
recently formed Midtown Cruisers, a car club based in
Williston. "The weather this morning was awful and
then the clouds just parted like that," Follin added with
a wave of his hands.
In four months, the club has grown to 50 members.
They meet in the morning of the third Saturday of
each month at the Williston Chamber of Commerce.
A cruise-in is staged later that same evening in the
parking lot of Advanced Auto next to the Williston
Winn Dixie. "We just have a good time get together
and shoot the breeze," Follin said.
This was the club's second car show. The first
*show raised more than eight hundred dollars that was
:donated to Juvenile Diabetes Research. The club also
;works with Holiday Hope, a charity that helps provide
Christmas presents for children.
Napa Auto Parts and Hitchcock's grocery store
allowed the Midtown Cruisers to use the adjacent field.
"They've both been great," Follin said.
Best Car award went to Kirk Romeroy of the High
Springs Cruisers Club for his 1960 gold Chevy Impala.
The seventh award Club Participation went to the
High Springs Cruisers for their substantial involvement.

It should be no surprise that the internet is being used to
shop. This means that you have a need for more information
'and are using the Internet to get it. The Internet can be a
great source for information on health, finances, travel and
,entertainment without leaving the comforts of home.
Along with this great new technology does come some
,pitfalls, so here are some great on-line safety tips to follow.
Many people window shop on-line but are fearful of
,someone else getting their credit card number from cyber
space and having a shopping spree of their own. The reality
is that shopping online is probably less risky than using
,your credit card at a local merchant. Look at the advantages
'of online shopping: no chances of being robbed in the a
"parking lot, no traffic jams, no pushy sales person and you
Don't have to go out in bad weather.
Try shopping at stores that are well known and avoid
'companies that only have a post office box number with no
phone number. When you order, print out a copy to save and
Note any confirmation numbers. With on-line shopping, you
,are better off using a credit card rather than mailing a check,
because if you don't get your order, you can challenge the
;charge with your credit card issuer. Be extremely careful
,if you are asked to give personal information, such as your
social security number or checking account number. Your
name, address, credit card account number and expiration
date are all the merchant needs.
I hope these Internet Safety Tips, will keep you surfin'
!safely.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs. Feb. 21 at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a busy day for the ones who are not sick.
So many have whatever, and it takes time to get over it. We
are doing a lot of praying and maybe soon this will be over.
We know the rains are helping as the air needs cleaning.
Last Friday we had seven Sew-Sew Sisters here. They
are from all over and get together several times a year and
visit places of interest. One brought a quilt made in 1937 and
it was a beauty. The work that went on years ago seems to be
something in the past. The quilting and appliqueing and all
the hours it took to make a quilt is gone with most quilters.
Today, machines have taken over and the pride that went on


then has gone. Everything that was done then can be done in
a few hours, but you don't have the love that went into all of
those treasures.
Derick and six buys were out Tuesday and they planted
vegetables we will soon be eating. Our turnips have nince
roots, the onions and garlic is almost ready, the cabbage is
making heads and the rain is a blessing.
Lunch was so good with rice casserole, beans and
potatoes, macaroni and cheese, scallped potatoes, salads,
apple pie and so much more.

Outta the Woods



Almost time to


start talking' turkey


By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission

Better start brushing up on your turkey calling,
because spring gobbler
season's here.
Whether you prefer
to use a mouth call,
box call, slate or any
combination, March E '
means it's time to start
talking' turkey.
One of the most
coveted and sought-
after game species in
Florida is the Osceola
turkey, also known as
the Florida turkey. This
unique bird is one of five
subspecies of wild turkey in North America.
The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and
nowhere else in the world, making it extremely popular
with out-of-state hunters. They're similar to the Eastern
subspecies (found in the Panhandle) but tend to be a bit
smaller and typically are darker with less white barring
on the flight feathers of their wings.
The white bars on the Osceola are narrower, with an
irregular, broken pattern, and don't extend to the feather
shaft. It's the black bars of the Osceola that actually
dominate the feather. Similarly, secondary wing feathers
also are darker. When the wings fold across the back,
the whitish triangular patch formed is less prominent
on the Osceola. And, Osceola feathers show more
iridescent green and red colors, with less bronze than the
Eastern.
The National Wild Turkey Federation and the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
recognize, in their respective turkey registry programs,
any wild turkey harvested within or south of the counties
of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay and
Duval to be the Osceola subspecies. Eastern turkeys and
crossbreeds are found north and west of those counties
in the Panhandle.
The highly anticipated spring turkey season runs
March 1 -April 6 in the South Hunting Zone and March
April. t0 sistn No rthest ond Central zones. The,
exception is Holmes County, where the season runs three
days, March 15-17.
Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers
only, and the daily bag limit's one. The season and
possession limit on turkeys is two, except in Holmes
County, where the season limit's one.
Shotguns are the best choice when hunting
turkeys, but if you're so inclined, you may use a rifle,
muzzleloader or handgun, or you can try your luck with
a bow or crossbow.
Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour
before sunrise to sunset, but on wildlife management
areas, you must quit hunting at 1 p.m.
Of course, you can use turkey decoys to help entice
that stubborn old bird, but you're not permitted to hunt
turkeys with dogs, use recordedturkey calls or sounds,
shoot them while they're on the roost or over bait. You
also can't hunt them when you're within 100 yards of a
game-feeding station.
To participate in spring turkey hunting, you'll need a
Florida hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan
to pursue a gobbler on one of Florida's many WMAs,
you also must purchase a management area permit.
All of these licenses and permits are available at
county tax collectors' offices, most retail outlets that
sell hunting and fishing supplies, by calling toll-free 1-
888-HUNT-FLORIDA (486-8356) or online at www.
wildlifelicense.com.
If you didn't put in for a special-opportunity or
quota permit, don't worry, several WMAs don't require
them. Visit MyFWC.com/hunting and under "This
Month's Hunting Opportunities," click on "2008 Spring
Turkey Guide: What you need to know" to see a list
of WMAs where you only need a hunting license,
management area permit and turkey permit to hunt
spring turkeys.
If you take a turkey with an 11-inch beard and 1
%-inch spurs, get your name listed in the FWC's Wild
Turkey Registry by applying for an "Outstanding
Gobbler Certificate." There also is a "First Gobbler
Certificate" awarded to hunters under age 16 who
harvest their first gobbler, regardless of beard and spur
measurements. Applications for both are available at
MyFWC.com/hunting.


Whether it's going solo after that elusive old tom or
double-teaming a pair of birds with your buddy, March
means spring gobbler season's here.
Here's wishing you a successful spring turkey
season. Remember to introduce someone new to the
sport of hunting when you can. As always, have fun,
hunt safely and ethically, and we'll see you in the
woods!
Last spring, Tony Young's daughter Cheyenne
accompanied him turkey hunting on family property,
where they took afine gobbler together. This season, the
nine-year-old says she's ready to take her first bird, if
her daddy can call one in for her.


The Bronson (left) and Otter Creek (right) Fire Departments are set to merge.


Possible merger ahead for


two local fire departments


Photos and story by Kellie Parkin
Staff Writer

The Bronson/Otter Creek Fire Department Merger
Committee will present the Town of Bronson Council their
recommendation to proceed with the union at the council's 7
p.m. meeting Monday, according to department officials.
"We must stay on course," said Bronson Fire Chief Rick
Lombardo.
The Committee is utilizing a contract agreement for a
similar merger between Chiefland and Fanning Springs fire
departments as a model.
"Why reinvent the wheel?" one committee member said.
Bronson Town Attorney Steven Warm will review the
contract prior to the Bronson Council's approval.
The Town of Otter Creek Council previously endorsed the
planned merger, and continues to offer their full support.
"This is going to be good for both towns," said
Melody LaFlam, committee member and Bronson town
councilperson.
The committee's recommendations include hiring two
part-time firefighters to man the stations five days a week.
"It will cut the response time in Bronson to just minutes,"
LaFlam said. "Right now, daytime firefighters come from
Chiefland and Williston."
Onsite staff will make Otter Creek and Bronson more


self-reliant, she said. "The other departments can be the back.
up they were intended to be not the first responders the"h
have had to be."
Daytime staff will also fulfill the much needed services
of checking hydrants, cleaning the stations, and providing
preventative maintenance for equipment and facilities,
according to officials.
Terms of the agreement are for one fiscal year and alloW
Bronson Fire and Rescue the right to use Otter Creek's fire
station building, vehicles, equipment and other property. BFR'
will maintain all assets in good condition as well as provide'
casualty, theft and liability insurance.
Subject to budget approval by each district's governing
body, the agreement will automatically be renewed each
year, although either district can terminate upon ninety days-
notice.
As part of the county's mutual aid' agreement, BFIP
currently responds to calls in Otter Creek without receiving
compensation.
The new agreement calls for Otter Creek to contribute-
an annual amount of $36,000 as well as their existing budget-
surplus. BFR Chief Lombardo will become the designated
fire official for both districts,
"We are creating the second largest fire district in the"
county," Lombardo said.

Bronson woman celebrates 90 years


By Elizabeth Phillips
special to the Journal

Ruth Conner met me at the door with a broad smile through drizzling rain and ushered
rie into the warmth of her tranquil home. Photographs of her family were mounted on
the walls, down the hallway, and on the .I
refrigerator. An upright piano was against one
wall with sheet music on its music stand. Books
of Sudoku and other puzzles lay on a table next
to her recliner. She and I sat on a sofa covered
with a homemade afghan. Minnie, a tan and
gray/black Yorkie, climbed eagerly into m
lap as Mrs. Conner reminisced about the past
90 years through albums filled with images of
herself and her family..
Ruth Olson was born on March 3, 191 8.
in Colorado Springs, Colo. Her father was
a plumber and heating specialist, as shown
in a picture of a hearty dark-haired man in "
front of a sign reading "A.E. Olson Heating ..
& Plumbing." Her mother was a store clerk
and later a concession vendor at Monument
Valley Park in Colorado Springs. Whenever
she dressed up to leave the house, she "looked
like a band box, like she just stepped out of a
courier's window."'
Ruth or "Sister" as she was called \\as
the youngest of four children. In those day s
during the Great War, mothers like hers were Ruth Conner
thrilled to receive another ration card for sugar
when a baby was born. Her siblings were known by nicknames too; Florence, Robert, and
Arthur Jr. were known as "Doll," "Bob" and "Sonny," respectively. They lived in a small
l4ome on the same lot as their father's business office when Ruth was born. She fondly
remembered her sister, Doll, who dearly loved horses, and was the sweetest, most gentle
person she knew. She eventually became a teacher in Green Mountain Falls, Colo. Bob was
a machinist in Chicago. Sonny joined the Navy and served in World War II.
A black-and-white photo showed Ruth with fair, long curls resting on her dress with
embroidered flowers, the handiwork of her mother. Ruth enjoyed singing in choirs in the
local congregational church and playing piano. She began piano lessons soon after her
mother noticed her attraction to the instrument at three years of age. Though the lessons
were for only a few years, she never laid down her love for playing the piano. She was also
4n excellent student, not distracted by mischievous boys who dipped her long curls into their
inkwells. She also helped her father at his workshop and was paid a penny for every 100
Aails she picked up.
I Ruth enjoyed playing in her front yard with her doll and buggies. One year, she stuffed
lier baby buggy with holly hocks and won a prize in a parade. She was very fond of her doll
and was "walking on air" when her mother bought an entire outfit for her doll shoes, hat,
and everything on a trip to visit her brother, Bob.
SShe graduated.from Colorado Springs High School in 1935 and worked for a year to
arn money, far college. She attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins for two
ears. When her grandmother became ill, R &r'ccimpanied her rith6r fodTForfid'toassist
.vith her care. She then enrolled at Stetson and earned a degree in Chemistry in 1940, thanks
to her father who supported her through the final two years.
! Then while working for the State Board of Health, friends introduced her to the man
who would become her husband. Joseph "Russell" Conner was kind and gentle, and could
calm her down in any situation with two or three words. He and Ruth became best friends
4nd were married in 1941 in his parents' home. Their oldest son, Jim, was born the next
.ear, followed by Joe in 1944, Bob in 1945 and Rick in 1947. Since Russell worked in
electronic wholesaling for Raybro Electric, they relocated multiple times and returned to
Tampa where they lived for many years. Mrs. Conner describes her husband as a "great
father who did everything he could to see they had all they needed."
He also loved fishing and used to take Mrs. Conner with him on fishing trips. She once
told him that she was not as good at fishing. So he bought her a fishing rod identical to his
and told her that she had just as much chance to catch fish as he. She subsequently "skunked

him" from time to time. He was a good Christian man who was always there for her and
her family. He was honest "as the day is long" and held the highest code of ethics. They
had many happy years together until he died in 1974. The older she gets, the more she
misses him. And it was obvious that he truly loved her.
They raised a beautiful family and faced triumph and trial together. Ruth eventually
went to work in tax preparation, mostly for H&R Block. In 1994, she moved to Bronson to ,
be closer to her son Joe. She continued with her interests of crocheting and knitting, which
her mother taught her. In addition, she enjoyed embroidery, sewing and needlepoint. Her
love for music was fostered by the constant presence of a piano in their home and duets she
and her mother used to play.
Through the years, Mrs. Conner experienced what many of us have only read in
history books the Roaring '20's, the Great Depression, World War II, sugar rationing, the
beginning of space travel, the technology boom. Yet as history repeats, -some experiences
have become universal love that endures through the years, concern for a brother in .
combat overseas, care for an ailing family member, the return of a relative from war with
the weight of unspoken experiences. She and her husband instilled honor, respect and
service to country in the lives of their sons. In fact, all of their sons served in the military:
Jim as a B-52 aircraft mechanic at Eglin AFB, Joe as a fighter/bomber mechanic at Laredo
AFB and then Vietnam, Bob as a computer technician in the Air Force in Iceland, and Rick
as an Army helicopter pilot in Vietnam.
She continues to promote integrity in generations who follow, advising them to "do the
things you ought to, don't do the things you shouldn't do." Now that she is approaching
her 90th birthday, Mrs. Conner is glad to have Minnie stay with her. She bonded
immediately when a friend brought this furry companion into her home. Mrs. Conner can
become frustrated by what she can no longer do as she ages, but each day she knows that
"happiness is what you make it". She still loves as intensely as I have ever seen anyone
love, and. that is the true essence of life real life. Love is her legacy, continuing long after
even you or I leave this earth.

(SECRET CODE)
Design your own secret code that no one can ever crack! In
your code book, write out the letters of the alphabet. To get
the letters and numbers for your special code, cut 36 small
pieces of paper. On 18 of the slips, write a letter of the
alphabet (pick every other letter like A, C, F, H). On the
remaining 18 slips write random numbers (for instance 5,
87, 130, 11, and so on in no particular order). Place the
pieces of paper in a box and shake to mix. Pull the first
piece of paper out of the box and write the letter or number
next to the letter A. Pull out a second piece of paper and
write the letter B (A=87, B=W). Continue until you have
coded the entire alphabet. You can also code using symbols
like >, ~, f or q, for example. Be creative! If your code falls
into enemy hands, simply change it!

SBronson 'barks n purrs'


Story and photos by Kellie Parkin
13taff Writer

+ BRONSON -- "It's much bigger than we expected," said Jody Heflin, Vice-President
of the Humane Society of Levy County, during the Bark-n-Purr Charity Concert and
'fundraising event Saturday. Thousands of people turned out to support the charitable effort
mnd to see country singer, Chris Cagle.
"I heard about it on the radio and we had to
< Zome check him out," said a concert-goer from
0Gainesville.
"We were so blessed to get Chris. He's an
primall lover he's adopted two dogs," Heflin said.
. In addition to head-liner Chris Cagle, the .
event included other musical performances, snow-
Iledding, choreographed dog shows, a plentiful
choice of foods and a cooking contest.
SMonies raised will go toward paying for land
tnd building a permanent facility for the Humane
Society. of Levy County. There is no facility in a
4 evy County but the need is great, Heflin said.
S "Right now we have to focus on foster homes.
*We rescue them from Levy County Animal Services
jnd kill shelters," Heflin said.
"Our goal is to open a facility that has low-
oest neutering and spaying and an adoption center
heree we can house the animals." Normally,
,4he sterilization procedure costs between $100-
;200. The new facility will provide the service for
approximately y $50-$60, Heflin said.
The center will also include a conference room
or educating children and providing classes on
ownership and animal welfare and training.
Before placement in foster homes, each animal
'is vetted, meaning they are spayed or neutered, de-
~ormed, and implanted with a microchip for identification purposes. "The Humane Society
provides foster homes with food, leashes and whatever [the animal] needs," she said.
SCurrently, five foster homes take care of four to eight dogs at a time while they await
adoptions. Foster placements are also available for cats.
The Society utilizes the internet for animal placement. "We couldn't do it without
petfinder.com," Heflin said. "They are a savior. There is no way we could save the number
.pf animals we do without them."
SAt petfinder.com, would-be pet-owners select the breed they are interested in and are
n'iatched with available animals in their area.
SThe Humane Society of Levy County operates entirely on public donations and receives
:no government funding. There are no paid positions within the organization. Volunteers
.Tange in age from 38 to 83. "We all volunteer out of love," Heflin said.
, Anyone interested in volunteering, adopting, or other info can call (352) 486-5705.

Carolina man works to preserve southern heritage


J. But Chiefland Wal-Mart


chooses to wave goodbye

ngjIStory and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

H.K. Edgerton is well aware of the deep coAtrasts he presents while standing alongside
County Road 320 in Chiefland. An African American man waving a Confederate flag is
somewhat out of the norm.
He remained there nonetheless Monday, adamant about preserving a heritage he
says is as important as any other in America, and yet increasingly endangered: that of the

African American. Edgerton, of Asheville, N.C., is in the area as part of Black History Month, specifically
to speak to the Cross City camp of the Sons of the Confederacy. He made the trip to
Chiefland, to the Chiefland Wal-Mart, to protest to a recent decision by the retailer not to
honor a recent request for a special cake. Friends had ordered a birthday cake for Edgerton
his birthday was Feb. 18 with a Confederate flag. Wal-Mart declined, he said, on the
grounds that the image might offend some people.
"I find their decision to be the highest level of discrimination," he said. "It does not get
EE.AL R J .A any worse than that."
SOfficials from Wal-Mart's corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. said the
Company does not have a "cake policy" per se, other than not using "illegal" images. They
Prefer, however, not to put any of their employees in an uncomfortable position.

"Individuals may not solicit outside a facility," she said. "However, people in
organizations may request approval from the local manager to solicit outside one of

outside our stores. A request must be made in advance, and solicitors must follow specific
guidelines."
So there H.K. Edgerton stood, on the side of County Road 320, waving the flag he
says is an integral element of Black history.
"This don't seem like Black History Month to me because people have erased a whole
part of my history," he said. "And that part that you have erased is a place that black folks

An ongoing effort to erase any history of those achievements is a travesty, he said.
"It appears to me like Reconstruction all over again to divide black folks and white
folks," he said. "We are facing a southern genocide."
Edgerton walked from North Carolina to Texas in 2003, wearing a Confederate

Agricultural Education in Levy County has a rich tradition. Through the
years many students have learned the value of our natural resources and issues
related to consumer marketing and research. In addition to learning specific
standards related to the curriculum of the various programs, students also have
the opportunity to participate in the Future Farmers of America. Almost all of our
Career and Technical Education programs have a student organization associated
with the program. Student organizations like Future Farmers of America, Health
Occupation Students of America, and Future Business Leaders of America provide
opportunities for students to practice the skills learned in the curriculum.
Current agricultural programs offered in Levy County include Agritechnology,
Animal Science and Services, and Horticulture. Bronson and Chiefland High
School currently offer Agritechnology and Williston High School offers all three of
the above named programs. All three programs focus on broad, transferable skills
and stress understanding industry: planning, management, finance, technical and
production skills, labor issues, community issues, and safety and environmental
issues. Agriculture programs offer much more than traditional farming. The face
of agriculture is continually changing, and in Levy County we are working to
bring in new Agriculture programs, including Agriculture Sales and Services
and Agriculture Biotechnology. The new field of agriculture includes numerous
environmental jobs including environmental engineering and environmental
service technician. Other jobs include crop advisor, research, agriculture
engineering, marketing and sales, accounting and more specialized careers such as
dairy feed salesman. The programs provide students the opportunity to explore a
wide range of careers and practice leadership skills, social skills and technological
skills.
Interesting careers related to Agriculture might include Agronomy. An
agronomist would conduct soil sampling, crop scouting, and insect, disease, and
weed identification. A distribution manager might oversee corn, soya and other
crop distribution operations. Bio fuels and Biotechnology are growing fields
along with Hydrology. In addition to exposing students to the. traditional role of
agriculture in our rural community the Agriculture teachers in Levy County are
committed to preparing our students for the future. The future of Agriculture
may look much different than it did during our grandparents' time but the reality
is Agriculture is essential. All of our students will become consumers and all of
our students will have to deal with the reality of our increasing shortage of water,
changing food supply, and never ending demands upon our natural resources.
Students that complete Agriculture programs can earn articulated credit with
Central Florida Community College towards an Associate of Science Degree
in Agri-Business or towards an Associate of Science Degree in Equine Studies.
The district is currently researching appropriate industry certifications that might
apply to the Agriculture programs. The goal is to have all Career and Technical
Education Programs linked to workforce needs, industry certification and provide
opportunity for secondary students to earn postsecondary credits.

County School Board.
