The Weekend Ahead

Things To Do
So you somehow managed to
miss the Suwannee Valley Player's
two-week presentation of 'Grease,'
and you figured you would never
really forgive yourself. Well, you got
lucky, because the show has been held
over due to popular demand. Head on
out tonight and check out some of the
area's top thespians in action, giving
it their all in a rousing rendition of
the '50s era musical. Shows begin
at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and
2:30 and 7 p.m. Sunday, at the Chief
Theater in Chiefland.
Not the theatrical type? Well, how
about the Florida State Bluegrass
Festival, scheduled for today through
Saturday at the Forest Capital State
Park in Perry. Music begins at 10
a.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. each day.
Tickets are only $10 per person, so
head on out and shake a leg.
You like music, but not necessarily
bluegrass? Well, don't fret, because
the 6th Annual. Rock-N-Wheels
Biker Bash is right around the corner
at the Spirit of the Suwannee Park,
between Live Oak and Jasper. This
year's three-day rally will include
performances by Blackfoot, Caddle
and ZoSo, and will feature a battle of
the bands, contests and much, much
more. Contact musicliveshere.com or
call (386) 364-1683 for ticket prices.
Want something a little more
toned down? How about the Anitque
Tractor and Engine Show, set for
Friday through Sunday at the Stephen
Foster State Park in White Springs?
Farm machinery representing 200
years will be on display from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. all three days.
If that is a little too laid back
for you, how about spending a day
with dozens of super hyper dogs at
'Jack Russell Mania?' That's right,
the dogs that act like they drank too
much coffee will be the highlight of
a day full of festivities Saturday at
the Horsemen's Park in Williston.
Festivities begin at 8 a.m. and you
don't want to be late.
As always, please be safe. We
need you back in one piece on
Monday.

Debates continue over Tarmac Mine


Company: Let's do it

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The King Road Mine north ofInglis would generate newj obs,
millions of dollars of income for its permanent 35 employees
and at least $1 million of property tax revenue annually for
Levy County, a company official said Friday.
Al Townsend, director of real estate and environmental
services for Tarmac America, LLC, said the limestone mine,
which would produce 3 million tons of aggregate annually,
would begin operating in the first quarter of 2010 if all the
regulatory and land use permits can be obtained.
Townsend, speaking to The Greater Chiefland Area Chamber
of Commerce, said geologic tests at the site show the property
sits on a large deposit of high grade aggregate suitable for
construction of roads, bridges, homes and schools. He said such
sites are rare in Florida.
The proposed 4,800-acre mine is five miles north of Inglis
and about a mile west of U.S. 19. Townsend said 2,700 acres
are planned for mining. Part of the mine site -- approximately
800 acres -- would be set aside for permanent conservation.


Public: Not so fast

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A federal meeting in Chiefland Thursday generated mostly
negative comments from Inglis area residents concerned about
potential impacts of the proposed King Road Mine on water
quality and their way of life, though one well-known Chiefland
resident spoke in support of the mine.
Teresa Barron, a Chiefland city commissioner, speaking
for herself rather than as an elected official, said she wants
local children to have an opportunity for a good life in Levy
County. She said the mine would provide them with economic
opportunities.
"They need good jobs to do that, and I believe this mine will
do that," she said.
Barron and about a dozen others spoke at a scoping meeting
hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at the Tommy Usher
Community Center. The Corps has the authority to regulate
wetlands at the mine site. The scoping meeting was a first step
by the Corps in gathering public input for an Environmental
Impact Statement that will examine the mine's environmental

C.D. Tummond was 21 years old in 1939, the year he was severely injured
in a logging accident. Three separate doctors took one look at his crushed
body and concurred: this man will not live. He cannot live.
Nearly 70 years later all three doctors are long gone, and Tummond, who
turned 90 on Tuesday, is still alive and kicking. Sitting outside his Fowler's
Bluff home, on the shores of the historic Suwannee River, he speaks fondly of
those early days,, and of becoming Levy County's newest nonagenarian.
Prices for life's basic needs have gone up just a little over the years, he
says with a smile.
"Meal was a penny a pound back then," he says. "Rice was two cents a
pound. Beans about the same. Back in those days, you could take five dollars
and go to town, and you could not bring all the groceries you bought back in
one trip."
To be fair, he says, wages have changed just a bit as well.
"I worked from daylight to dark in the lumber industry, beginning at 50
cents a day, and then 75 cents, 80 cents, and then a dollar," he says.."I worked
many a day in water and mud up to my rear end for one dollar. I would use
that money to buy school clothes."

High-speed chase ends in Bronson


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A 35-year-old Levy County man is being held on a
charge of attempted murder in connection with a shooting
incident in Citrus County on March 20 that led to a high
speed chase on through both counties.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office arrested Malcom
Jermaine Stacy in Bronson after taking over the chase
from the Citrus County Sheriff's Office. Stacy was also
charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. He
was transferred to the Citrus County Detention Center.
Officers said the victim, St. Anthony Perry, 38, was
unhurt, but his commercial truck, which had been parked
outside Oyster's Restaurant in Crystal River Perry at
the time Perry was ambushed, was struck by several
bullets.
Perry used his pickup to chase Stacey's Nissan car
through portions of Citrus and Levy counties before he
ran out of gas, but Levy County deputies had an accurate
description of Stacy and his vehicle and were able to stop
him at Lake Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in Bronson
at 8:20 a.m., arrest reports said.
Citrus County Sheriff's Office spokesman Gail
Tierney said Perry often parked his truck outside
Oyster's. On March 20, at about 6:30 a.m., he started
his truck and was walking around it doing a safety check
when he heard several gunshots coming from a stand
of trees behind him. He dived into his cab. When the
shooting stopped, he saw Stacy; a man he knew, running
toward the nearby Walgreens drug store. He saw Stacy
jump into a Nissan car and drive south on U.S. 19.
Perry, who had been a victim in an earlier shooting
incident involving Stacy, gave chase in his truck. When
Stacy saw he was being followed, he made a u-turn on
U.S. 19 and headed north on U.S. 19, with Perry in hot
pursuit. Perry notified Citrus County and gave deputies
a description of the suspect. He lost track of Stacy at
County Road 337 in Levy County. Levy County took
over the chase from Citrus County. Tierney said the
chase reached speeds in excess of 70 mph going into
Bronson.

After Perry was stopped by Levy County Cpl. Brian
Marra, Perry was brought to the scene. He identified
Stacy as the shooter.
Tierney said it was fortunate no innocent parties were
hurt by the gunfire in downtown Crystal River or in the
chase that followed. She said the cooperation between
the two law enforcement agencies was the main reason
the chase ended without someone getting hurt.
"It went down pretty much like clockwork," she
said.
In unrelated Levy County sheriff's office cases:
Two Chiefland women were arrested March
25 on charges of grand theft auto. The sheriff's office
said Rebecca Ann Blackerby, 20, 5791 NW 70th St.,
Chiefland, and Virginia Danielle Tindale, 17, 10490 NW
20th Ave., were charged with one count each of grand
theft auto. An employee of Andy Andrews observed
the two women loading the golf cart into a truck using
ramps, and driving away. He notified the sheriff's office.
Both girls denied stealing the cart, but Tindale did say
she sat in the cart, an arrest report said.
Ivan D. Stakes, 37, of Ocala, was arrested March
28 on charges of burglary of an occupied dwelling and
battery after breaking into the home of the man his wife
was in bed with and beating him. The victim, Artrell
Manuel, 21671 Se 70th St. Morriston, said he awoke to
find his girlfriend's husband, Ivan Stakes, standing over
him beating him in the face and holding his hair. Lisa
Stakes intervened and left with Ivan out the front door
to prevent her husband from continuing the beating.
Manuel went to Ocala Regional Medical Center for
treatment of his injuries.
Marcus Daine Bolden, 28, of Brunswick, Georgia,
was arrested on grand theft auto and cocaine possession
charges on March 27 after a deputy saw him run a stop
sign in Bronson. The vehicle he was driving turned
out to be stolen from Alachua County. Deputy Jimmy
Anderson found a baggy of marijuana in Bolden's pants
pocket and pill bottle containing 31 pieces of crack
cocaine in the car. He. was also arrested on charges of
driving with a suspended license. He had three previous
license suspensions.

Practice effective


computer security

The same advice

deliver to young
drivers on their first
solo journey applies
to everyone who
wants to navigate
safely online.
Don't drive in.
bad neighborhoods.
Ifyou don't lockyour
car, it's vulnerable;
if you don't secure
your computer, it's SH ERIFF'S
vulnerable. Reduce
your vulnerability CORNER
and you reduce the SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
threat.
Below are some key steps to protecting your
computer from intrusion:
a Keep your firewall turned on. A firewall helps
protect your computer from hackers who might try
to gain access to crash it, delete information, or
even steal passwords or other sensitive information.
Software firewalls are widely recommended for
single computers. The software is prepackaged
on some operating systems or can be purchased
for individual computers. For multiple-networked
computers, hardware routers typically provide
firewall protection.
s Install or update your antivirus software.
Antivirus software is designed to prevent malicious
software programs from embedding on your
computer. If it detects malicious code, like a virus or
a worm, it works to disarm or remove it. Viruses can
infect computers without users' knowledge. Most
types of antivirus software can be set up to update
automatically.
E Install or update your antispyware technology:
Spyware is just what it sounds like-software that
is surreptitiously installed on your computer to
let others peer into your activities. Some spyware
collects information about you without your consent
or produces unwanted pop-up ads on your web
brdwsern Sime .operating systems o.eferfAeespywa.ren
protection,: ,~ndisa d eendi sofw readily.t,
available for download on the Internet or at your
local computer store. Be wary of ads on the Internet
offering downloadable antispyware in some cases
these products may be fake and may actually contain
spyware or other malicious code. It's like buying
groceries shop where you trust.
a Keep your operating system up to date.
Computer operating systems are periodically updated
to stay in tune with technology requirements and to
fix security holes. Be sure to install the updates to
ensure your computer has the latest protection.
0 Be careful what you download. Carelessly
downloading email attachments can circumvent
even the most vigilant anti-virus software. Never
open an email attachment from someone you don't
know, and be wary of forwarded attachments from
people you do know. They may have unwittingly
advanced malicious code.
0 Turn off your computer: With the growth
of high-speed Internet connections, many opt to
leave their computers on and ready for action.
The downside is that being "always on" renders
computers more susceptible. Beyond firewall
protection, which is designed to fend off unwanted
attacks, turning the computer off effectively severs
an attacker's connection be it spyware or a botnet
that employs your computer's resources to reach out
to other unwitting users.

Levy County Journal


Dual enrollment enhances options for local students


Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Editor s note: As graduation 2008 approaches,
the Journal will explore academic/career options
and obstacles in a series of articles on the status of
education in Levy County. Warren Parkin contributed
to this article.
Approximately 50 high school students in Levy
County are taking advantage of Dual Enrollment this
year, a program that makes it possible for them to attend
college classes at no cost for part of the day and high
school classes the rest of the day, according to Mike
Todd, Director of Secondary Education.
Students receive both high school and college credit
toward an Associate's Degree for each course taken.
Todd describes the college program as a way "to
open access for empowering [students] to know that
they have another direction." The program is one part
of Levy County School Board's emphasis on providing
education with "rigor and relevance to what kids want
to do," said Todd. "We want to provide opportunities
for students to get a jump start on college."
The District has articulation agreements with Central
Florida and Santa Fe Community Colleges. Chiefland
students cross the street to CFCC's Levy Center and
Bronson students ride a bus to SFCC's Davis Center
in Archer. Given the remote location from community
campuses, Williston students attend college classes
on-site in the high school and receive credit through
CFCC.
Typically, students must be at least 16 years old in
their junior year of high school and have a cumulative
grade point average of 3.0 to participate in the program.
Students coming from an underrepresented group are
eligible for the program with an average GPA of 2.5,,
Todd said. Prior to enrolling in college courses students
have to pass the College Preparation Test which measures
academic readiness in math and English, or receive a
satisfactory score on the American College Test or the
Stanford Achievement Test which also measure science
and writing proficiency.
Dual enrollment is for "students who need a
little more stimulation, challenge and a more grown
up environment," according to Ruth Henderson,
Coordinator of the Santa Fe Davis Center. Henderson
says that dual enrollment gives students an opportunity
to attend a real college campus and is "'an excellent
transition between high school and college, a chance to
be involved in both." High school students attend with
traditional college students in small classes where they
receive close attention from teachers so that they can
establish a pattern of success, she said.
High school students who attend classes at the
Davis Center come from a variety of backgrounds

and locations: home school, private school, Cedar Key
School and Bronson High School. Henderson, who
holds a Ph.D. in English Literature and Education and
has spent much of her long career in administration,
finds the students mature, pleasant and well prepared.
Sarah Macintosh, Adjunct English Professor and
Academic Advisor at the Davis Center, agrees. "I find
the high school students bright and interested and excited
about what they're doing. I enjoy the youthfulness that
they bring to the classroom. I love to see the light turn
on as'they're presented with new ideas, options, ways of
understanding," she said.
Students enjoy the freedom they experience in
college. "I feel like I have more room to do things
my way," said Jonathon Irizarry, a 16-year-old junior
from Bronson High. He is currently taking English
Composition, Introduction to Biology, and Marriage
and Family at the Davis Center. "It's very convenient to
go during high school and not have to make a separate
trip," Irizarry said. He also enjoys attending college
with students that he already knows. "I'm familiar with
the people around me," he said. It's a good experience
"to go from a small school' like Bronson to get used to
college." His advice to other students who are interested
in the program: study math. "I've seen a bunch of people
who have had problems with the math on the ACT and
CPT," Irizarry said.
Jake Williams, also a 16-year-old junior at BHS,
is enrolled in College Algebra, English Composition
and Marriage and Family, said he likes the college

atmosphere, too. "In college we have more freedom than
in high school. You get challenged with higher education
and you get more freedom. They treat you more like an
adult," he said. "The teachers work with us. I've learned
a lot so far," Williams added.
Dual enrollment is free to qualified students. "It
has the very obvious advantage of saving parents a
lot of money on tuition," Henderson said. The school
district pays for books and the state of Florida pays
for tuition. This year the district has spent $12,700 on
text books, according to Todd, and students have saved
approximately $50,000 in tuition.
Students interviewed for the article uniformly
pointed out the cost savings. "The classes are more of a
challenge and it gives us free credit," Williams said.
The program at the Santa Fe Davis Center is
expanding. As of next year, second semester 10th grade
students who meet the academic criteria will be eligible
to participate, according to Henderson.
In addition to academic successes and obtainment
of knowledge and skills, Henderson points out that
students who participate in the program will graduate
a year earlier from college: Graduates typically earn
between $29,000 and $30,000, she said. That results in a
substantial economic gain for students and their families.
"We're here for the kids and their futures," Henderson
added.
For more information on the dual enrollment program
contact your local high school guidance counselor or
Mike Todd at 352-486-5231.

Two die in separate accidents
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Two people died in separate traffic crashes in Gilchrist County on Friday and Saturday,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
A 35-year-old Trenton man was killed at 8:15 p.m. Friday when the small "dirt bike"
he was riding hit a Nissan car head-on and he was ejected from the motorcycle. The
vehicles were traveling on S.E. 70th Avenue.
The Nissan, driven by Sandra Marie Holder, 41, was northbound and passing a
slow moving vehicle when the crash occurred. She was unable to see the approaching
motorcycle, which had no headlight. The crash occurred late in the day.
In the second crash, a 41 -year-old Cedar Key man died Saturday when the truck he was
driving ran off a bridge, overturned and landed with the cab underwater, the FHP said. The
Levy County Sheriff's Office' dive team arrived at the scene 17 minutes after receiving
the call and removed Tracey Daris Stevens from the submerged cab of the truck. He was
pronounced dead at the scene by the Gilchrist County Emergency Medical Service.
FHP Cpl. Lena M. Ward said Stevens was eastbound on Canal Avenue when his 2003
Chevrolet pickup truck failed to make a left curve while traveling across a narrow bridge
with a 12-inch high concrete edge wall.
Stevens drove the truck off the south edge of the bridge and came to rest facing in a
northeasterly direction on its roof in a water-filled canal with only its undercarriage and
wheels above the water line. He failed to exit the vehicle, Ward said.

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

Bob Tebow's visit to Chiefland's Hardeetown Baptist
Church March 26 was not about Gator football, and it did not
concern the Heisman Trophy.
The father of University of Florida quarterback Tim
Tebow made those points abundantly clear from the outset.
In fact, Tebow made only passing references to the
Gators and his record-setting son during an hour-long, fire-
and-brimstone sermon on his faith and experiences while
serving as a Baptist missionary in remote locations around
the world.
"If you are a Gator fan, you kn6w that somewhere along
the line the Gators have given you great joy, and they have also
broken your heart," he said. "That is part of being a football
fan for any team, at any level. We don't win them all.
"But I am not here to talk about football. I am here to talk
about Jesus, and He has never broken my heart. He never lets
you down. Football teams let you down, but Jesus does not
let you down."
The packed church included dozens adorned in the orange
and blue colors of the Gators, and the emotions of many a
large contingent of younger people in particular seemed to
rise and fall with each casual reference of the football team.
Tebow acknowledged that he was perhaps letting those people
down by focusing instead on his faith.
"There is somebody here tonight who came because they
thought I was going to talk about football, and they came

treasures in heaven'

wondering what the dad of the Heisman Trophy winner was
going to say," he said. "If that is you, then you don't know
Christ."
Tebow's sermon included a half dozen anecdotes from
his experiences in India, as well as from more than 20 years
serving as a missionary in the Philippines. His "Uncle Dick's
Home" in that country cares for approximately 50 orphans.
Pastor Bill Knight of the First United Methodist Church
in Chiefland recognized those accomplishments while
introducing Tebow.
"He is training pastors, in over 8,000 churches in the past
five years alone," Knight said. "Anybody who could be a part
of having eight and a half million people come to trust God
has got to be somebody who is doing the Lord's work."
Doing the Lord's work was a central theme of Tebow's
sermon. Each time a person is able to accomplish something
for the Lord, he said, that person is laying up treasure in
heaven. That is always preferable to collecting treasures
while on Earth.
"You bunch of Americans," he said. "You are nothing but
a bunch of professional stuff-gatherers. Jesus said 'Do not
lay up for yourself treasures on Earth,' and that is what we
are doing. Stop it. Stop it. Be smart lay up for yourselves
treasures in heaven."
The quality of the work on Earth determines the reward a
person receives in heaven, he added.
In addition to Timmy, Tebow has four other children -
two boys and two girls. He and wife Pam have been married
36 years. They live in Jacksonville. *

Tarmac, from Page 1


The remaining acres would include buffers, a limestone
washing and sorting plant and roads.
The company has proposed donating 4,600-acres of
adjoining property west of the mining site to the state as
conservation land. The property would adjoin Waccasassa
State Bay Preserve. The plan is for the property to be
permanently preserved for conservation purposes.
About 1,500 acres of the mine site is considered
wetlands, according to the U.S Army Corps of Engineers.
The property has been used for planted pines in the past.
Much of the surface is wet at least part of the year. The
aquifer is close to the surface on the property.
Limestone mining, one of Florida's oldest industries,
occurs in the Florida Aquifer, which provides much of
the state's drinking water. The aquifer is made of porous
limestone that holds water. The excavation often leaves
freshwater lakes behind.
The mine would use 21 million gallons of recycled
water daily to wash the rock, Townsend said. An
additional 1 million gallons per day would be drawn
from the aquifer to replenish water lost to evaporation in
the mine's lake.
Townsend said 60 full-time positions would be
created for construction of the mine and 35 people would
be hired to operate the mine, with salaries averaging about
$30,000 annually. Townsend said Tarmac is aware Levy
County has a trained mining workforce. Many miners
were put out of work when the Florida Rock Industries
mine closed in September 2007.


Townsend said 500 limestone rock trucks would leave
the mine and return each day.
A brochure created by Tarmac says about $100
million of new revenue a year would be pumped into the
Levy County economy by the mine, and about $1 billion
the first decade. The mine is expected to generate $1
million in property tax revenue annually. Labor income
would amount to $2.2 million annually.
Townsend said the site has enough limestone to last
for 100 years. Tarmac plans to mine to a depth of about
100 feet. The mining will be done in blocks, creating rows
of small lakes and pits. After the mining is completed in
one block, the area will be filled, which Townsend said it
a key step to maintaining the natural level of the aquifer.
If the aquifer were to drop too low, he said, surrounding
wetlands would lose their water. He said that won't be
allowed.
"We'll keep the water within 6 inches of its norm,"
he said.
To clear up a rumor, Townsend said the massive
1971 model dragline at the site was purchased in British
Columbia (Canada) for $2 V2 million. He said the dragline
has been rebuilt and a modem electrical system added.
The company will have spent $37 million refurbishing
the dragline by the time work concludes.
Responding to questions, Townsend said Tarmac
would use explosives to blast loose the limestone three
times a week. The blasts would occur between 8 a.m. and
5 p.m. Monday through Friday, each lasting 2 seconds.

and economic impacts.
Tarmac America needs Corps approval before it can operate a 4,800-acre limestone
mine 5 miles north of Inglis and a mile west of U.S. 19. Corps' officials said residents
have identified many issues that will be taken into consideration and made a part of
the EIS.
"Science is a huge part of it, but economics is considered as well as public priorities
and benefits," said Ed Sarfert, who heads the EIS process.
The National Environmental Policy Act requires all federal agencies to prepare an
EIS for major federal actions that could have significant impacts on the environment.
Under NEPA, the word 'environment' includes air, water, wildlife and geology, but
also people's relationship with the environment such as health, safety, jobs, housing
and aesthetics.
The draft EIS will be completed late in 2008 or early next year. The final EIS will
be issued in the spring of 2009. A "record of decision" by the Corps will be issued
late in the summer of 2009.
Before she spoke, Barron listened to a long line of residents criticize the mine
proposal, including Jack Foley, an environmentalist who said he was disappointed
the Corps had bypassed local elected officials when it sought public input and instead-
went to the state.
"It appears all the limerock will create a lot more (urban) sprawl," said Foley, who
grew up in Levy County.
Citrus County resident Emily Casey, representing the Kings Bay Association and
The Save the Homosassa River Alliance, among others, said there is an economic
value to the ecosystem.
Casey said the effects of adding industries one by one to the environment have a
cumulative effect. She noted there are five existing electric power-generating plants in
area and two additional nuclear power plants are being proposed. The latest addition
would be a mega mine.
"At what point will the ecosystem be unsustainable?" she said.
Edward Michaels, a director of the Withlacoochee Area Residents, a group of 100
concerned residents, alleged the EIS. process is being tainted by false information
supplied by Tarmac contractors presenting their case to the government.
Peterson cited a Dec. 14, 2005 letter from Steven E. Walls, senior ecologist for
Biological Research Associates to the Southwest Florida Water Management District
claiming the Levy County Commission had rezoned the mining site to allow mining
operations. It was a false claim.
Peterson read from a letter written Freddy Moody, Levy County coordinator, dated
March 7, 2008, disputing Walls' letter. Moody said Walls' letter contained erroneous
information regarding the approval of zoning. The upshot of the letter is that the King
Road Mine site has not been rezoned to allow mining.
"This is possibly a serious crime that helped facilitate the permitting of Tarmac's
test permit by SWFMWD," said Peterson. "We implore the (Corps) to scrutinize
every piece of data provided by Tarmac LLC with a skeptical eye to prevent this from
happening again."
Gigi Law, an Inglis truck driver who said she has hauled out of many mines, said
the roads would deteriorate rapidly as a result of use by King Road Mine rock trucks.
She said the trucks would not be covered well enough to prevent limestone dust from
being blown off the trucks.

Tarmac: Delay decision

Tarmac America, LLC., the company proposing
to open a large limestone mine north of Inglis,
notified Levy County Building Official Rob Corbitt
Monday that it wants to postpone Levy County
Planning Commission consideration of its pending
rezoning application until January.
A letter from Jacob D. Vam of the Fowler
White Boggs Banker law firm said the company
has pending permit applications with other
environmental agencies, and the data gathered for.
those permits would be helpful to all parties when
the county considers Tarmac's application for a
special exception.
Corbitt.said Tuesday he needs to consult with
other county staff members before a decision is
made on whether to postpone Planning Commission
consideration of the special exception, which would
rezone the property to allow mining. The county
also has to give the company an operating permit.
The Planning Commission tabled the special
exception in December to give Tarmac time to
answer five questions, among them how the
company would avoid saltwater intrusion and how
much combined traffic the mine and two proposed
nuclear power plants would generate on U.S. 19.
Progress Energy has proposed building the plants
east of U.S. 19 opposite the proposed mine.

Teen wins grand champion in swine show again!


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Kaley Wilder is making a career out of winning the
swine show at the Suwannee River Fair.
The Williston Middle School 8th grader won grand
champion Monday night, duplicating her first grand
champion honor won in 2006. She won reserve grand
champion in her first year of competition at the fair.
Wilder is daughter of Chris Wilder, an agriculture
teacher at Williston High School and an FFA advisor, and
Amy Wilder, a teacher at Hilltop Alternative School.
She said she selects the hogs herself, with help from
her dad, and uses a technique that she was told is a good
way to judge a young hog's potential. She said if the dip
at the base of the tail can hold a dollar coin, it's probably
a good hog.
But then again, she said, she really has no secret
formula. She said she works hard with the animal and
feeds it Fast Fuel, a hog food that builds muscle and
provides protein.
"I just know how to pick them, I guess," said Wilder,
who also rodeos and plans to compete on a top-notch
western college rodeo team after high school.
Wilder's hog, purchased at the Chad Lyons farm in
Mayo, was the best of 252 at the 56th annual Suwannee
River Fair and Livestock Show and Fair in Fanning
Springs.
Winning reserve champion was Tyler Johnson of
Dixie County FFA, son of Troy and Rhonda Johnson of
Cross City.
Johnson, who bought his hog at the Ray Morrow
farm in Georgia, said capturing reserve honors was a big
win for him, but said he didn't have a special way of
preparing the hog for the fair.
"I just groomed him ... real good," he said.
The fair this year was spread out over a month's
time, rather than occurring during one weekend or two
weekends in mid-March, as was the case in the past.
Fair President Mark Bishop said the long time span
was in part due to the growing size of the fair, but the date
of the fair had to be changed to accommodate Florida
student testing at the Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist County
schools. The testing conflicted with the traditional fair
dates.
Bishop said 66 fat steers and 141 feeder steers were
entered this year along with the 252 market hogs. He said
it was helpful to stage the horse, rabbit, beef-heifer and


dairy goat competitions earlier in the month, along with
some of the showmanship events. Despite the changes in
fair scheduling, the show arena was still packed Monday
with relatives of swine exhibitors watching the show.
However, there was standing room than at past fairs.
The fat steer and feeder steer competitions were
scheduled for Tuesday. The traditional sale of the steers
and hogs will take place Wednesday, beginning and
9:30 a.m. and probably ending late in the evening. The
show arena will fill with buyers, many of them business
people, to buy the animals.
Bishop said buyers paid about three quarters of a
million dollars last year for the animals, but with the
national economy bordering on a recession, and the local
economy not faring much better, no one is sure how
much money will be spent at the sale.
"This year, we don't even know," Bishop said.
Bishop himself is a former swine exhibitor who won
grand champion twice in a 7 year period at the fair. He and
his wife Christel, and their three daughters, Briana, 16,
Brandalyn, 12, and Bathalan, 7, travel all over Florida,
and sometimes to Alabama and Georgia to show cattle.
Christel and her two sisters dominated showmanship
competition for years at the fair. She and her husband
met at the fair.
Bethalan competed in home economics this year at
the Suwannee River Fair in the Clover Bud division for
5-8 year olds. She is a member of the Flatwood Friends
4-H Club in Trenton.
While the hog show was in progress, many
exhibitors were grooming their steers for the next day's
competition, among them Victoria Sandlin of Williston
Jr. FFA. Her steer, Tebown, named for University of
Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, was cooperating, though
somewhat reluctantly.
Sandlin's parents, Sharon and Damon Sandlin, who
operate Sandlin Farms, a cow-calf operation, watched
their daughter with the steer. Sharon Sandlin said her
daughter bonded better with last year's steer, which was
more docile.
"She would lay right on top of him," Sandlin said.
Tebown, though less affectionate, allowed himself to
be kissed above the snout, though he seemed impatient
about being groomed. Victoria was hopeful he would
win, but Damon Sandlin shook his head no. He said the
steer wouldn't win championship honors.
"We pick them on temperament, not on just meat
quality," Victoria Sandlin added.

Senior righthander Ory Pitts tossed a complete game, and leadoff hitter Dane
Cothron collected two hits as Chiefland won its 101h game of the season March 27, 6-3
over the visiting Blue Wave of PK Yonge.
Pitts was in complete command for much of the game, limiting his opponents
to single runs in the third, sixth and seventh innings. He caught PK Yonge's Tyler
Ledvina looking at a called third strike with the bases loaded to end the game.
Chiefland got on the board early, scoring a run in the first on a single by cleanup
hitter Brent Slaughter. Cothron singled to begin the inning and advanced to third on a
hit by Kory Hanchar. Slaughter then put the home team ahead with a clean single to
left field.
The Indians added a second run in the bottom of the second. Matt Williams lined
a one-out single and advanced to second on a passed ball. Cothron's second hit of the
game scored Williams to make it 2-0.
PK Yonge responded with a single run in the third on a run-scoring hit by CJ
Brown.
Chiefland scored twice more in the third on a hit, two walks, and a balk by PK
Yonge pitcher Alex Mikkelsen.
Pinch hitter Adam Burton put Chiefland up by four with a two-run single in the
sixth inning. The hit scored Slaughter and Pitts, who had led off the inning with back-
to-back hits. Burton's hit, along with several others during the game, were clutch, said
Chiefland coach Kyle Parnell.
"We had some timely hitting tonight and that was important," he said. "Ory had a
couple of big hits as well. He is as dangerous with his bat as anybody in the lineup. Of
course, he pitched well tonight too. He did not have command of all his pitches, but he
gave us a chance to win, and that is all you can ask. It was a good team win."
PK Yonge coach Shane Carnley agreed that Pitts was solid on the mound.
"The key to the game is that we did not hit pitches as well as we should have," he
said. "We are improving though. The first time we faced Pitts he just mowed us down.
We looked better tonight. We are not a quitting ball club that is for sure. The kids
battle, and they work hard. I am proud of them."

Fort White foils Chiefland's softball senior night

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor _ _ _ _ _ _ ___


The Chiefland Lady Indians gave Fort White all it wanted in
a girls softball district matchup March 27, coming back to tie the
visitors with a sixth-inning run.
But Fort White scored twice in the top of the seventh to send
the home team reeling 3-1, breaking the hearts of five seniors
playing their last home game.
Taylor Douglas lined a one-out double down the left field line,
driving in the winning runs for Fort White, which led for most of
the game. Douglas was also the winning pitcher, striking out eight
batters along the way.
But Chiefland did not go quietly. Trailing 1-0 with two outs
in the sixth inning, the Indians put together an impromptu rally,
tying the game with back-to-back hits by Amy Grieves and Brooke
Williams. Grieves stroked a base hit into left field to start the rally,
and then raced around the bases on a double by Williams. The ball
skipped past Fort White right fielder Lauren Howard, allowing
Grieves to score from first as the home crowd cheered her on.
But it was not to be. Alison Wrench led off the top of the
seventh with an infield single, and advanced to second on a bunt
hit by Caitlin Jones, who finished with three hits in the game.
Douglas then hit the second pitch from Chiefland's Brittany Davis
into the corner, allowing the winning runs to score.
Davis was in command for much of the game, allowing only
five hits through five innings while striking out six. Jones was a
nuisance early on, scoring the game's first run after legging out
an infield hit and stealing second. Douglas drove her home with a
base hit to give Fort White an early lead.
Chiefland managed a few hits early on, but could not get'the
big hit to drive in a run. Shelbie Hastings lined a two-out single in
the bottom of the second, but was stranded. Lobot drilled a one-
out single in the fifth inning, but was left on base as well.
Chiefland looked as if they would take the lead in the bottom
of the second, but a Fort White double play took their momentum
away. Rebecca Wilkerson walked to begin the frame and advanced
to second on a hit by Aimee Biehl. But both runners were caught
in rundowns on a failed bunt attempt, hurting the rally although
Grieves and Williams did put their team on the board moments
later.

Trenton tops Bronson, 11-1


By Steve Jarboe
Sports

The Trenton Lady Tigers turned throwing errors and
aggressive base running into runs, as they scored big in
the third and fourth innings to down the Bronson Lady
Eagles in five irmings 11-1 March 27.
Lady Tiger Casey Fisher put the Lady Tigers up 2-0
in the bottom of the first inning with a stinging two-run
single. Lady Eagle pitcher Brittany Shipp struck out the
next batter for the third out of the inning.
Shipp then struck out the side in the second inning as
the score remained 2-0 in favor of the Lady Tigers.
The Lady Eagles left two runners in scoring position
in the top of the third inning as Shipp blasted a one out
double putting runners at second and third. Lady Tiger
pitcher Tarah Vick, struck out the next two batters to
retire the side.
The Lady Tigers scored three runs in the bottom of
the third inning to take a 5-0 lead. With two runners on
base Lady Tiger Jo Hutchinson collected a base hit that
was turned into a three run scoring spree off of three
throwing errors by the Lady Eagles as Hutchinson turned
a single into a home run.


Starting the bottom of the fourth inning holding the
5-0 lead, Brandy Matthews drove in a run with a base hit
for the Lady Tigers. This was followed by another base
hit by Amanda Schwietermen that scored two runs on
another throwing error by the Lady Eagles. Leading 8-0,
with the bases loaded, Fischer drove in another run for
the Lady Tigers with a single that dropped just in front
of the center fielder.
The Lady Tigers scored two more runs in the fourth
inning on two passed balls as the aggressive base running
paid off, giving them an 11- 0 lead after four innings.
The Lady Eagles remained determined.With one out
in the top of the fifth inning Kim Nemeth walked and
Lady Eagle Angela Freeman drove a pitch to the fence
past the Tigers left fielder scoring Nemeth and putting
Freeman at third with a triple.
The next batter popped up to the catcher and the next
grounded out to the third baseman to end the game.
Lady Tigers coach Aaron Bachle said the key to the
game was his team's ability to run the bases.
"It was our aggressive base running, and we finally
got the bat on the ball," he said.

King Road Mine: Economic boost for the region and the state


To sustain a strong economy and an
attractive quality of life, communities in
Levy County and throughout Florida are
looking to improve roads, build schools,
hospitals, businesses and homes.
However, those projects could be in jeop-
ardy and costs could rise if the state
and others can't find new sources of
construction-grade aggregate, a vital
building material in short supply.
To build just one mile of a 2-lane
highway, it takes 25,000 tons of this type
of aggregate. The average house built in
Florida uses 400 tons.
Aggregate comes from a durable grade
of limestone found only in a few places
in Florida. One of those places is Levy
County, where Tarmac America is seek-
ing a permit to open King Road Mine.
Since the 1980s, Tarmac America has
been a leading supplier of Florida
construction materials, relying on the
best-proven technology for safely and
processing limestone while protecting the
ing natural resources.

Economic Boost to the Region
From King Road Mine, more than $1 billion in new
revenue will flow into Levy County in the first decade
of operations. That's the combined result of Tarmac
America's investment in construction, operations and


ECONOMIC BOOST TO THE REGION
King Road Mine Project:

340 spinoff jobs throughout the region
$136 million in construction spending
$1 million annually in property taxes
to the county
$100 million annually in local spending


the spinoff economic benefits other sectors of the
region would experience.
Environmental Protection and Conservation
At the heart of the King Road Mine are plans to
safeguard the natural resources -. from wetlands to
water to wildlife. The company's mining operations
will meet the strict rules set by federal, state and local
agencies ensuring environmental protection.
The proposed King Road Mine encompasses 4,800
acres with 800 acres that will be preserved as
wetlands; 1,300 acres for buffers, roads and a pro-
cessing plant; and 2,700 total acres for mining. Only
about 30 acres will be mined a year. Additionally,
Tarmac will preserve about 4,600 acres adjacent to
the mine at its western boundary, next to the
Waccasassa Bay Preserve.
To turn limestone into the right size and grade of
construction aggregate, Tarmac America has
designed a processing system that will circulate about
22 million gallons of water from a quarry-side lake to
the processing center, and then back to the lake.
To maintain optimal water levels at the mine lakes,


less than a million gallons of water will
be needed a day to replace what's lost
during processing.
Extensive studies of the watershed and
other hydrological features have been
conducted as part of the permitting
process. Those studies show the pump-
19 ing and recycling of water in mining
operations will not affect the water
quantity and water quality patterns of
Lebanon nearby towns or springs.
Station
Tarmac America's efforts also include
vegetation management to remove
exotic species and promote native
species diversity, the creation of a
Forestry Stewardship Plan and detailed
mitigation plans for wetlands.
Maintenance of Public Services
EVY Outside of the mine, Tarmac plans to
OUNTY improve access to King Road and other
roads around the property. For example.
where King Road meets U.S. Highway 19, accelera-
tion and deceleration lanes will be added, allowing
trucks exiting the mine to ease into traffic flow.
About 500 truck trips a day are planned once min-
ing operations begin. The company has conducted
extensive studies of vehicle activity. Those studies
indicate trucks from King Road Mine would not
change the level of service on U.S. Highway 19 or
county roads as they head to markets in North and
Central Florida.
From roads to water resources, Tarmac America is
committed to protecting the environment and being
a good neighbor.

Levy County Journal OUTDOORS


Jon and the monster
I have taken all manner of people fishing over the years, many with
afflictions and ailments large and small. There was the gentleman from
Jasper with irritable bowel syndrome, who in a flash had to go so bad
that we almost didn't make it back to shore.
There was the lady from Gainesville who
was scared to death of the water, and got so
excited that she nearly sunk us. Colds. The
flu. Broken bones and such. I have seen it
all. t
But nothing compares to the case of
my friend Jon, whose condition amounts to
nothing less than a horror story, plain and
simple.
Jon suffers from cluster headaches,
which are said to be a form of migraines.
Only they are not migraines, he
tells me. They are migraines on A Fish Sandwich
steroids. with Barney Busby
He gets these things once or twice
a year, and they come in groups in clusters. He will get them every day
for a month, or a month and a half. The frequency alone is bad enough,
Jon says. But the intensity is frightening. For about one to two hours
he suffers pain that is simply unimaginable to most of us. That pain is
isolated to one side of his head. Draw a line from the hair to the tip of the
nose, and everything to the right is fine. The left is a roaring inferno.
This is not your typical headache, where you can put a cold wash rag
on your head and lay on the bed and he still, he tells me. It is a bang your
head on the wall, crawl across the floor on the side of your face type of
thing.
It's a frantic 120 minutes with a monster inside your head. There is a
freight train coming toward you, and you want to step offthe tracks. Only
you are the tracks, and there is nowhere to run.
The worst, he says, is waking up in the middle of the night right in
the middle of one of these things. That is when the monster catches my
friend off guard, when Jon's defenses are at their weakest.
His wife has witnessed these attacks, and she tells me that his eyes
grow large with terror. He is like a child in a real-life horror movie,
desperate and scared to death.
He was in one of these clusters one year and I offered to take him
fishing to get his mind off the things. The peaceful setting of a slow drift
down the river might be just the tonic, I reasoned. He reluctantly agreed,
and we backed the boat into the water at daybreak.
He would not drink coffee that morning. Caffeine, he told me, is a
"trigger" for the headaches to start. Once a cluster has begun, Jon tells me
that he has to stay away from such triggers as caffeine, smoke, alcohol,
and stress.
The stress offers a cruel irony, he says. Once he feels a headache
coming on, he immediately feels more stress because of it. That increased
stress brings the headache on even faster, and even stronger.
He frantically chews Extra Strength Excedrin so that it will dissolve
and get into his bloodstream more quickly.
Doctors haveprescribed avaiety ofmoredpotentredications o; ee
a years, manyof which leave Jon nauseated an4 disorented, red-egd
groggy. Few work he says. Trouble is, once he knows a cluster headache
is on its way, it is too late to do anything about it. It is like a tsunami, he
says. If you can see it on the horizon, it is too late to get away.
He got away from the monster that day. Thankfully, he did not get a
cluster headache while we were fishing. It was probably pure luck more
than anything else. But if the couple of hours we spent on the water helped
my friend Jon out, I was happy to have done it. We even caught a few fish
along the way, and he smiled and laughed while bringing them in.
I could see it in his eyes, though, that Jon knew this was only a small
oasis in the middle of the desert. A brief respite from more unimaginable
pain. He knew that the headaches would soon return, and that he would
have to suffer once again.
Hang in there Jon. One day you will beat this thing.

New in DVD


'Sweeney Todd' is


ghoulish good fun


By Rick Burnham
Editor

You have to admire Johnny Depp. Here is a
young man who has, for the most part, shunned the
big money blockbusters of Tinseltown in favor of
going his own way. His has been a career of far-
reaching projects,
small and artsy New In DVD
productions,
quirky movies with eccentric characters and plots.
"Edward Scissorhands." "Ed Wood." "Chocolat."
"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."
This wayward approach has paid off
handsomely. The string of off-the-beaten-path
characters he has portrayed has honed his skills
like none other in Hollywood. He has thumbed
his nose at the establishment and has succeeded
anyway. Johnny Depp is widely recognized as one
of the best actors Hollywood has to offer.
And so it continues with "Sweeney Todd The
Demon Barber of Fleet Street." Depp is the title
character in this Tim Burton film, a man who was
wronged and seeks red-blooded revenge. "Sweeney
Todd" reunited Depp and Burton, who worked
together previously in "Scissorhands."
Burton is a bit weird, plain and simple. His
dark and dreary landscapes are oftentimes straight
out of a nightmare, and he continues this trend with
"Sweeney Todd."
The thing is, it seems to work with this film,
mainly because the movie is set in England by
all accounts a dark and dreary place. It also works
because the film has a stellar cast, beginning with
Depp, but also including Helena Bonham Carter,
Alan Rickman, and Sacha Baron Cohen -- the guy
who kept us laughing two years ago with "Borat."
"Sweeney Todd" is a musical, but don't let
that fool you. There is not Mary Poppins. There is
extreme violence throughout, with enough blood
and gore to completely justify its "R" rating.
graphic stuff- like you won't believe. So put the
children to bed early, send the grandparents home,
put the animals out to pasture. This is a movie best
left for the adults.
It's a fine movie though, and is certainly worthy
of your hard-earned dollar.
"Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet
Street." is available at movie rental locations
throughout the tri-county area.
Each week, New in D VD will review a film
that flew under the radar, one that did not get the
publicity of the major Hollywood releases, but
offers quality entertainment nonetheless.

Relax kid, have another popsicle


My wife, Angie, and I were sitting in
the front yard the other afternoon minding
our own business, thoroughly enjoying my
impromptu dissertation on the state of the
Middle East, when out of nowhere a crazy
bird flies up and starts beating his wings in
my face. I'm not going to lie. I screamed
like a little girl and fell sideways out of my
chair. *
In a feeble attempt to save face I
rolled to my feet with my best Jackie Chan
impression. After I'd made sure the bird
was gone, I dusted off,
hitched up my pants, and But An
teased, "Get back over u
here Angle, you big sissy, Gi
it's just a little ole' bird." She.just rolled her
eyes. Easing back into her chair she soon
had her face buried back in that magazine she'd been
using to tune out my foreign policy bluster.
Yet within minutes the little bird was back, hopping
around in the grass behind us. "That's weird," Angie
commented. "Yeah," I said shaking off a sudden shiver,
"It freaks me out. I wish it would just go on."
"No, not that." she replied, "I'm talking about a
grown man being so scared of a -little bird!"
"Ha ha...," I countered, knowing she had a
point. I was as jittery as a mob informant giving the
commencement address at his witness protection
program graduation ceremony.
Then it came to me, "Fll bet that's the same baby
sparrow I had to run out of the garage last night. It was
too young to figure out how to fly under the door. I spent
ten minutes trying to nudge it out with my fishing rod.
He probably just likes the sound of my voice." Angie
flipped a page, "Yeah, well that makes two of you."
Just then the bird flew up, hovering again just over
my head. Angie took off, but this time I bravely stayed
put. Carefully shielding my face, I offered out a hand.
Would you believe that wild little critter landed on
me? Yep, he perched right up on my wrist like he owned
the place. I heard Angie gasp. I grinned like Sylvester
the cat.
Our kids noticed the commotion and came running
up from the cove. Anglie shooed them back as best she
could, hoping not to miss how this drama would unfold.
However, my daughter Kailey, who fancies herself


our resident animal specialist, couldn't stand
me getting all the attention. She bullied past
Angie's barricade intent on offering the little
sparrow a bite of her Popsicle. When she got
too close, little Tweety spooked and flew off.
I haven't seen him since.
Now I'm not a big bird lover, but I'll
'admit I've been a little worried about Tweety.
I mean, he's obviously not thinking straight.
Why else would he try to befriend me? I'm
not even in his species! What if he takes up
with-someone not so nice? He could end up
spending the rest of his life trapped in a cage,
or worse.
Iyw a/ y Little Tweety should be out doing bird
SShefeld things, pursuing God's bird calling for his
0 f Lieljdlife. Instead, he's no sooner learned to fly
than he's hanging out in strange garages.
It just makes you want to sit his parents down and ask,
"Do you know your little Tweety's out there right now .
looking for love in all the wrong places? Are you so busy
building your own nest you can't take time to instill in your
kid a sense of worth?"
Of course there's no better way to ruffle feathers than
to flyup in somebody's beak about how they raise their
chicks. Besides, I realize it's not always the parents' fault.
It's just that I wish every child could grow up with the
assurance that they are loved and accepted, especially by
God. If they had that revelation they'd be a lot less likely to
fly off half cocked. Even if they did migrate in the wrong
direction for a season, they'd always have a sense of where
their true home lies. Even the sparrows and swallows are
welcome to come and nest among your altars and there
have their young, 0 Lord of heaven's armies, my King
and my God! How happy are those who can live in your
Temple, singing your praises. Psalms 84:3-4 NLT
But anyway Angie and I are on the same page about
one thing; the day we nudge our kids out of the garage they
won't have an excuse to end up behind bars, or worse. If
they do, it's on them. We will have done all we can to show
them and teach them the love of God. What is the price of
five sparrows two copper coins? Yet God does not forget
a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are
all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to
God than a whole flock of sparrows. Luke 12:6-7 NLT)

Miss Honey Says...

full of love! Yes puppy love!! and a very
bad headache, I guess it's my sinus,
but it really is bad! I didn't sleep much
last night, but I don't think that's what
caused the headache. I know Donald if
you had a head like mine, it would hurt
too! That's okay I love you anyway, un
huh do too and also does Mary!!
I forgot to fill my gas tank yesterday
and just as I turned into the parking lot
at A&A Restaurant today it gave out.
Jim put enough in my tank to get me down to Tony's
Station and I have gas now. This won't happen again
(I don't think), cause I will be more careful. Yes, my
car tried to warn me, the little gas pump light was
coming and yes, when it comes on again you better
believe Miss Honey will go straight to Tony's and get
gas in my tank. Yeah, I don't want to walk!! No! not
down that highway toward Bronson, I don't think I
would make it to far, because my breath gets short
and the sun is too hot. That really was a wakeup call,


e*bbid id fa
_ ..... the first .time-Iiremembig g out-of gas!!
Hush Donald I'm allowed one mistake!! Bet
you've made a few yourself!! Later Ok!!
I guess it's later, I fed the little ones and
you should have seen my "Baby Doll" eating
noodles out of the chicken soup! I would hold
one up and she would catch it in her little
mouth. She is a special little girl! Of course,
they all are, but she is so little and sweet!
Thanks Jessie, for my new stuffed bear,
you are a sweetheart and I love you too!
Bits andPieces, life can only beunderstood
backwards, but must be lived forwards!!
Hope springs eternal in the human heart!!
There is a name for people who are not excited about
their work "Unemployed."
People may doubt what you say, but they will believe
what you do!
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by
what we give!
When one door closes another door opens!
Until next week, be good, take care and God bless
each of you. Nuff said,

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


18 April 3,2008


Levy County Journal


Recreational Fest, Aviation Fly Market
Hundreds gathered at the Williston Airport Saturday for the annual
Williston Airport Recreational Fest and Aviation Fly Market. In addition
to dozens of aircraft, there were more than 20 vintage automobiles
to view, along with a variety of recreational activities for children to
enjoy. Also, members of the Williston Chamber of Commerce were on
hand to serve meals. Clockwise, from top: two men prepare to take
off in a vintage biplane; Alan Wight of Gainesville pilots his remote
control aircraft; real aircraft line the parking ramp as visitors take a
closer look; Dakota and Destin Judy take a back seat as pilot Bruce
Shivers gets their plane ready for a flight. (Photos by Rick Bumham)


90, from Page 1


Tummond says that growing up in the depression era left its mark "you never
really get that out of you," he says. He remains frugal, chasing away neighborhood
kids who take grapefruit off his trees and throw them away.
"It is one thing if you are going to eat them," he says. "But don't waste them.
When I was born, we didn't throw anything away."
Born in Dixie County when Woodrow Wilson was president Tummond
moved to Levy County at seven, and started school here. He walked a mile and
a half to get to classes rain or shine and then back again at the end of the day.
Students carried their lunches in brown bags usually a jelly sandwich, or if they
were lucky, a sandwich with meat in it.
Later, following school, he was able to make a name for himself in the lumber
industry, and, eventually, afford more than the basic necessities of life. He married,
and took the steps necessary to prepare his two children for life.
"I gave them all the education they wanted, and gave them the tools to make a
living with," he says. "After that, I said 'All right. It's out there. Now go get it.'"
Tummond took the same approach, not only excelling in the lumber industry,
where he rose to the position of "paymaster," but in public service as well. He ran
for Levy County tax collector in 1960, and took office a year later. He served in that
capacity until 1977. Then, at 59 years old, he decided to hang it up.
"I just decided I wanted to retire I had just about all of it I wanted," he says. "I
had raised my children. My wife and I had divorced. So there was nobody but me.
So I decided I would do the things I wanted to do."
That included spending a year "on the land," something Tummond says he had
wanted to do for some time. He lived on a houseboat on the Suwannee, catching and
eating and selling fish.
The retirement years also brought on a second wife, who eventually died of
cancer. Tummond and his third wife Doinisia celebrate their one year anniversary
this week. But first came the 90th birthday, a milestone for someone who was not
supposed to live past 21.
"I was in an accident in Gulf Hammock in 1939," he says. "I was working on
a right-away, and they pulled a tree down on me. I was in the hospital for 92 days.
Even when I came out and was in bed for about six months. I was out about two
years convalescing.
"I had three doctors and they said I would not live. I have outlived all of them. It

was just the good Lord that healed me. Prayer is what did that."
Tummond has not only outlived those doctors, but many close friends and
associates as well. He reflects on those people from time to time, thinking about
good times and days gone by.
"The people I worked with and went to school with, most of those have gone
over on the other side," he says. "I have one person who is living who was in the
courthouse when I was in there. As far as the people I worked with at the sawmill,
went to school with, went to church with, all of them have died. They went off and
left me. Some that was younger than I was. Some older. Some the same age."
Looking back, Tummond says he has no regrets about the life he has lived. His
children, and their children, and their children as well, are happy and prosperous.
"I have had a normal life some of the bitters, some of the sweets," he says.
"The best thing is that I have no enemies. I have outlived all of them."
