Weekend Ahead


Things To Do
Do you appreciate fine art? Of
course you do. That's why you will
be headed toward Cedar Key this
weekend for the 44th Annual Spring
Art Festival better known as the
Old Florida Celebration of the
Arts. If you have been to this thing,
you know there is nothing quite
like it. Sponsored by the Cedar Key
Chamber of Commerce, the festival
attracts as many as 120 artists,
specializing in painting, sculpting,
jewelry design and photography.
It's the event of the season in
Levy County, so don't miss it.
Of course, if cultured fine art is
not your thing, you might want to
head on down to Bronson for the
Spring Carnival. Regardless of who
you are and where you are from, a
carnival is just good old-fashioned
fun. The smell of carnival food,
lingering in the air. The sounds of
kids young and old, riding wild and
wonderful mechanisms with crazy
names like "The Twister," and "The
Serpeant." Carnival folk, doing what
carnival folk do.
If those are the visions of fun,
then head on out to the corner of State
Roads 27 and 24 through Sunday.
Big-O-Amusements have set up shop
there and will do their best to keep
the local community entertained. A
portion of the proceeds will go to the
Bronson Youth League, so you know
it's for a good cause.
If the carnival is not your thing,
how about the circus? The Florida
State University Flying Circus.
With breathtaking routines rivaling
those found in-professional circuses,
FSU guarantees fun and excitement
for all ages. Tallahassee is just a short
jaunt up U.S. 19, so give FSU a try.
While you are up there, why not
check out the Florida Wine Festival,
at Kleman Plaza in downtown
Tallahassee? The festival offers fine
wine, great food and a variety of
exhibits and programs throughout the
weekend, each day from 10 a.m. to
6 p.m. That includes grape stomping,
so you don't want to miss out.
If that is just not enough to. get
your juices flowing, then how about
the "Wanee Fest," a musical journey
at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music
Park, between Jasper and Live Oak.

Fair buyers continue support


This year s sales


top $723,000 ,

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


With the national economy sluggish, buyers at the. Suwannee
River Fair could have been forgiven if they had spent a little
less money at the sale on April 2.
But the bidding for hog and swine exhibits was as brisk as
ever. Never mind the economy.
Tri-county buyers spent $723,070 buying exhibits from FFA
and 4-H members in Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist Counties.
"I'm amazed at the community's support, even in times
when the economy is not perceived that strong," said Darrell
Smith, secretary/treasurer of the fair. "The last three or four
years we worried about not having the support, but every year
the conimunity comes through."
The big surprise at the sale was the $18 per pound paid for
Tyler Johnson's reserve champion hog. The Cross City FFA
exhibitor received a record price. The hog sold for $4,950. The
previous record for the reserve champion hog was set in 1995
when Leslie Hatch of Cross City sold hers for $13 per pound.
Johnson's buyers were Sanchez Farms, LLC, Dixie Waste
Services, Boland Timber, Dixie Chevrolet, Flint Equipment,
Sheriff Dewey Hatcher and Capital City Bank.
Williston Middle School FFA member Kaley Wilder's grand
champion hog sold for $5.50 per pound. Tarmac America, LLC,
the company proposing to build a limestone mine in southwest
Citrus County, was the sole buyer of the Williston grand
champion. Tarmac paid $1,457.50.
In the feeder steer division, Briana Bishop's grand champion
sold for $8 per pound. Bishop belongs to Flatwoods Friends 4-
H Club in Trenton. Her buyers were Rose Show Supplies, I.S.
Ranch, Scoggins Chevrolet, Perkins Financial Group, Chiefland
Farm Supply, DeChamplain Farms and Green South Equipment.
Her steer sold for $5,703.60.
Reserve Champion feeder steer exhibitor Kristen Hardin
of Chiefland FFA received $4.50 per pound for her hog. The
buyers were Chiefland Farm Supply, Farm Bureau, Suwannee
Valley Vet, Tarmac America LLC., Osborn Barker, candidate
for property appraiser, Gary Sapp and Napa Auto Parts of

14-year-old arrested


for CMS bomb scare
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A 14-year-old Chiefland boy was arrested on March 26 for
threatening to use a bomb or explosive at his school, but he was
not the first to make a bomb threat, city police said.
The boy is one of two middle school students scheduled to
face expulsion Tuesday night at the Levy County School Board
meeting and the fourth CMS student to be arrested this school
year on criminal charges of writing bomb threats on school
walls.
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas said 10 bomb
warnings were investigated this school year, eight at CMS

Jackson House becomes

new Bronson Town Hall
By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Originally planned as a community center 10 years ago
when it was donated to the Town of Bronson by Perkin's State
Bank, the Historic Jackson House will now become the new
town hall after a divided council decision Monday night.
Mayor Franklin Schuler voted in favor of the move, siding
with Vice-Mayor Beatrice Mongo and Councilmember Aaron
Edmondson. Members Melody LaFlam and Berlon Weeks
opposed the motion. "It should be a community center," Weeks
said.
Mongo said that the Jackson House is not large enough to

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


2 April 10, 2008


Levy County Journal


Law enforcement officials



experience active week


Be cautious of


criminal activity


on the road

Consider this
scenario: You're
stuck in heavy traffic
on a busy highway.
Another car cuts off
the driver in front of
you, forcing him to
slam on the brakes.
You try to stop, but
there's no time ... and

in front of you.
An everyday SHERIFF'S
accident? Not this CORNER
time. Turns out you've
been had by a well- SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
organized criminal
ring that staged the entire thing.
This particular scam is called the "swoop and
squat." (The first car "swoops" in while the second
car "squats" in front of you.) After the "accident,"
everyone in the car you rear-ended-usually
crammed full of passengers-will file bogus
injury claims with your insurance company. Each
will complain of whiplash or other soft-tissue
injuries-things difficult for doctors to confirm.
They may even go to crooked physical therapists,
chiropractors, lawyers, or auto repair technicians
to further exaggerate their claims.
We're talking big money here. Staged accidents
cost the insurance industry about $20 billion a
year. Those losses' get passed on to all of us in
the form of higher insurance rates-an average of
$100-$300 extra per car per year.
Here are some similar scams to look out for:
The drive down: You're attempting to merge
when another driver waves you forward. Instead
of letting you in, he slams into your car. When the
police arrive, he denies ever motioning to you.
The sideswipe: As you round a comer at a
busy intersection with multiple umrn lanes, "you
drift slightly into the lane next!t6'you. Thee'car in,
that lane steps on the gas and sideswipes you.
The T-bone: You're crossing an intersection
when a car coming from a side street accelerates
and hits your car. When the police arrive, the driver
and several planted "witnesses" claim that you ran
a red light or stop sign.
How can you protect yourself? If you're in an
accident, call the police immediately.
Report accident claims to your insurance
company. Don't settle on site with, cash.
Be careful with your personal information,
mindful of identity theft.
If you can, photograph the car and passengers
and write down names, addresses, and phone
numbers.
Use medical, car repair, and legal professionals
you know and trust. Don't tail g e ... drive
safely.


Levy County Sheriff's Office activities this week
include the following cases and incidents:
A 16-year-old Chiefland man was arrested by
the Levy County Sheriff's Office Monday for allegedly
firing a shotgun at a vehicle.
Kenneth David Drown, 6991 N.W. 100 St., was
arrested by deputy Jimmy Anderson on two counts of
aggravated assault with a firearm.
Lt. Evan Sullivan said the victims were driving south
in the 6900 block of NW 70th Ave. when an unknown
person threw a rock at their vehicle. The victims turned
around and went to Brown's home, where they thought
the attacker may have gone.
The victims knocked on the door and could see
Brown sitting on the couch, but he refused to come to the
door, Sullivan said. When the victims left the residence
in their vehicle they heard gunshots and saw red sparks
coming off the pavement in front of their vehicle.
Anderson arrived and observed eight used shotgun
shells on the porch. He smelled gunpowder. Brown at
first told Anderson he had not fired the gun, but later
changed his story, saying he had fired the shotgun into
the ground.
Anderson recovered a loaded camouflage shotgun
from Brown's bed.

Ask the tough questions

By Rick Burnham
Editor

In his quest for the presidency, Barak Obama has certainly
captured the imagination of a nation. He utters the word "hope,"
and people fall out in the aisles. He says "change," and people grow
speechless.
But the key question about the Illinois senator is this: if he gains
a seat in the oval office, will he be able to find room in the White
House for corporate media? They are certainly going to expect him
to, seeing as how they will have put him there.
Somewhere along the line the media's rules of engagement
changed for political candidates, and they did so in favor of Mr.
Obama. Media no longer asks the hard questions of those seeking
office, but merely seeks to advance their own not-so-hidden agendas
by sweeping those issues under the rug.
Any idea where Mr. Obama stands on illegal immigration? Ever
wonder why you don't know where he stands on this issue? How
about abortion? Gun control? Do you know how he feels about
environmental issues?
Didn't think so.
The trouble is our national media has failed to ask the critical
questions of Mr. Obama, instead focusing their efforts on the hoopla
surrounding a man who has focused his campaign on two very vague
concepts.
Hope. And change.
Specifically, what are his ideas to encourage hope, and which
of those ideas will promote change? What exactly about the way
the country is currently being run needs changing? These are the
questions our media needs to ask, and yet they fail to do so, time and
time again.
Fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton gets the hard questions. So
does Republican John McCain. We know where they stand on the
economy, and we understand their plans for ending the war in Iraq.
What will happen in the event of another terrorist attack on American
soil? They answer that question, while Obama responds to questions
about his childhood.
We know he favors nationwide health care, but do you have
any idea how he plans to pay for it? Didn't think so. No one does,
because the national media have not asked the question. How about
our military? Will we see another dramatic downsizing, as was the
case when Bill Clinton took office in 1992?
No one has asked the question.
Who are the victims here? The country as a whole, of course. But
how about Mr. Obama? He may very well be the biggest victim of all.
His oratory skills are remarkable, and he appears to have leadership
skills that are above the norm. It would be a tragedy if he were indeed
the best candidate out there, and we never truly found out.
He deserves the opportunity to relay his ideas on a plethora of
issues. Sadly, because of an irresponsible media, he may never get
the chance.
This is certainly not the time for such apathy. There has never
been a more critical time in our nation's history, a time in which
the decisions of a president have such far-reaching implications. We
sp gng;aggrd to elect a pierson hose attention is on anything
but the welfare of the county a, a whole.,Sadly, our nation's media is
asleep at the wheel foctisingtheir attention instead on issues that 10
years from now will very likely seem petty and inconsequential.
Make no mistake the stakes are high. If we elect the wrong
person for president later this year, it could spell the end for this great
nation. And if it does, you need look no further than our corporate
media as a culprit.


to the same pitch. Mom would hole up
in the back corner of the house plugging her ears,
while Heath would just walk by and snicker every
time I'd sing.
Their attitudes quickly changed when they
heard about our upcoming Halloween gig though.
Suddenly they were very helpful, even offering to
roadie. Yep, they both jumped right in and toted
our gear clean out of the house before we could
even ask. It just goes to show you, people treat
you different when they realize you're going 'Big
Time'.
Our first sound check woke the neighborhood
before the dew even lifted that Halloween morning,
and I suspect we checked our tuning at least forty
times throughout the day. Yeah, we were a mite
anxious, but nothing compared to how anxious we
grew as nightfall approached with no sign of our
little drummer boy.
"Where in the world is Jessie," I barked. I
considered kicking over one of his cymbals. It
would've helped solidify my image as the band's
bad boy, but since I didn't have the money to
replace it I wisely resorted to just stomping down
to the curb to scan the street and pout. Not much
was moving, just a vampire and a pair of witches a
couple of doors down.
Our singer Mac shuffled down behind me
in his tie-dyed T-shirt. "Be cool dude," he said
reassuringly, "We got a gig to groove. I'm sure my
man Jess will be here soon."
"Well I can tell you this," our bass player Ray
chimed in, "I ain't setting up his drums next time."
I nodded in agreement, "There won't be a next time
for that little squirt if I get my hands on him!"
Of course, I was just blowing hot air. I wouldn't
dare risk the wrath of Jessie's big brother Tad.
Tad was about to graduate high school. His band
had already played Shakey's Pizza twice! Shucks,
next to Ted Nugent, Tad was our hero. Besides,
everyone knew Jessie was the best musician in the

band, even though he was only
eleven.
By nightfall the little driveway
was clamoring with ghouls and
goblins, curiously drawn by all
the music gear. Even a couple of
old people stood around, probably
wondering when we'd bring out
the food and drinks. "All the more
reason to start," I thought, "They'll
leave just as soon as they realize
there's not any."
"That's it," I finally cried,
"I'm riding over to Jessie's house:
again." I stuffed my bell bottoms
in my tube socks and hopped
on my Huffy. I pedaled the three


blocks on pure adrenaline.
His momma answered the door toting a bowl
of sweet tarts. "Where's little Jessie," I asked
accusingly, "We're supposed to be playing!" She
smiled, rather warily, like she always did when she
saw me. "Oh, ahh...," she said, "Jessie's out trick-
or-treating."
My jaw fell slack. What in the world would an
eleven year old be doing out trick-or-treating on
Halloween?
"What's he wearing," I pleaded. "He's cut up
one of my best sheets," she replied, "He's gone as,
a ghost." I tore out of there like I'd seen one.
Back at the party I shouted, "He's a ghost!" For
a split second it didn't seem to register. Then Mac:
hollered, "Spread out! Check under every white
sheet you see!"
For the next hour we were like a bootlegging
band of Ghost Busters gone bad. We terrorized
every poor boogeyman on the block. Jessie was
nowhere to be found. Eventually we all moped
back to the party, if you could still call it that.
It consisted mostly of Heath and my mom now.
Somebody had egged our amps.
"What are we gonna do," I fumed, fighting back
tears. "Look!" Mac shouted. Up the street came
a little ghost bopping along toting a pair of drum
sticks and a pillow case slam full of treats.
Don't you hate when life doesn't go as
planned? You get all excited, set something up,
fine tune it, and then you spend all your time
chasing ghosts. Outside of just resigning to a life
of it, how dan we avoid such disappointment?
Through much trial and error I've found most
disappointment stems simply from not being in
tune with the Lord's will in the first place. How
can we expect anything but failure when we don't
have the Lord's blessing on our gigs? Unless
the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in
vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the '
watchmen stand guard in vain. Psalms 127:1 NIV
The Lord is the only builder with the blue prints tq
our abundance.
But anyway It's never too late to start
grooving to the beat of a different drummer. If
you want to live a life worth living you must not
only give your heart to Jesus, but surrender your.
will to His. Then seek the Ghost, the Holy Ghost!
I reckon it sure beats an eternity of entertaining
ghouls and goblins.

My mom and little brother Heath

fortunate enough to hear us. Since
we practiced at my house almost

Strategic Planning aims for better health services


Sessions bring

tri-county experts

to one location

Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

"It may be that we don't have a lack of resources but
just need to coordinate them all," said one participant
at the Strategic Planning Reception last month held at
Bronson High School, the second of its kind this year.
Representatives from the library system, schools,
Heath Department, medical centers and the soon-to-
be-built Tri-County Hospital joined residents from
Williston, Bronson, Chiefland and Cedar Key to
determine more in depth the key heath issues affecting
the people of Levy County.
Healthcare access, public awareness, and
community education topped the list of issues needing
improvement. Emphasis was placed on the necessity
for better communication regarding the services we
already have in the county, as well as additional services
needed including mental health, dentistry and primary
care physicians. Specialty medical treatments such as
dialysis, cardiovascular care and services for people
with disabilities were also identified as critical needs.
The Levy County Health Department is hosting
the Strategic Planning meetings in an effort to provide
better health access, care and resources in our area. The
idea is to pair the knowledge, expertise and concerns
of community residents with that of local professionals
to first brainstorm, then plan and finally implement a
strategy to strengthen our community health. According
to the Institute of Medicine, this is a process that
involves "collecting, analyzing and using data to
educate and mobilize communities, develop priorities,.
gather resources and plans to improve public health."


Christina Abarca (right) and Jeff Fuller (standing left) facilitate small group workshops to determine critical issues
regarding the health status in Levy County. Each group presented their findings to the others and together all
participants agreed on the most important issues that need to be addressed.


"Community driven strategic planning provides
mutual benefit for everybody," said Slande Celeste,
Heath Promotion and Education Coordinator for the
Levy County Health Department.
The planning process emphasizes reliance on
citizens to identify problems and implement solutions.
"Problems don't belong to the health department, they
belong to the community, and the solutions do too,"
said Christina Abarca with the Florida Department of
Health Office of Planning and Assessment based out
of Tallahassee. Abarca helped facilitate the March
27 meeting along with Jeff Fuller of the WellFlorida
Council.
Participants uniformly rejected the idea of a
planning council, citing the need for a council that
will actually take action and have immediate positive
impact on the community. "Certainly, we don't want to


contemplate our navels," joked Fuller, pointing out
that often times committees meet, state the obvious,
and then take no action while they wait for the next
meeting.
The reception concluded with participants
agreeing to form a Levy Health Council at the next
meeting, which in turn will focus on access to health
care and education and awareness of residents.
"Next time we will formalize the group and come
together to oversee the issues identified tonight,"
said Barbara Locke, Director of The Levy County
Health Department.
The meeting was lightly attended by community
members not affiliated with healthcare or
government agencies. All residents interested in
bettering the community, regardless of background,
are encouraged to attend the next reception to
participate in the process, said Fuller. "And bring
two friends," he added. A general consensus of the
group was that with more participation and more
collaboration, there would be a greater diversity of
knowledge and expertise to find solutions.

County Commission looks to cut costs in 2009


Group discusses


possible revenue


sources as well

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Next year's budget for the Levy County Commission
could be a lean one, and commissioners acknowledged
that Tuesday.
As a result, Commissioner Nancy Bell said the
Board needs to look not only at its revenue sources, but
at cutting costs when possible.
Commission Chairman Sammy Yearty said a budget
workshop will be scheduled soon.
The county has begun staff discussions about the
'2008-09 commission budget. The budget year will run
from Oct. 1, 2008 through Sept. 30, 2009.
County officials have been watching the declining
revenues for several months.
County Coordinator Fred Moody told the Journal two
weeks ago that preliminary estimates show the current
county commission budget could fall $392,000 short of
projected-revenues.
Moody said the county has implemented a hiring
freeze to save money and has sent out a memo asking


everyone to conserve.
But he said the mosquitoes are not cooperating with
the county's attempts to squeeze the tax dollar.
"The day the memo went out it seems that's when
the mosquitoes began attacking Levy County," Moody
said at Tuesday's meeting.
Building Official Rob Corbitt described the flood of
mosquitoes as "an epidemic." He said many of the calls
from complaining residents mistakenly come his way,
but he forwards them to Mosquito Control.
Moody said the county has four mosquito control
trucks attacking the swarms of biting insects.
Many of the county's revenue sources are in decline,
including gas taxes, according to Yearty.
Property values are projected to drop by $180 million
in the 2008-09 budget, Moody said, resulting in a loss of
$900,000 in revenues.
What's more, the Florida Legislature in 2007 forced
county and city governments to roll back their millage
rate. The rollback will result in less revenue again next
year. A constitutional amendment also took value off the
roll by doubling the Homestead exemption.
The Levy County tax roll for 2008-09 won't be
presented to commissioners until June. That is when
Property Appraiser Francis Akins will reveal how much
values have dropped. His preliminary estimate is a 5-10
percent drop in the value of the roll.
At Tuesday's board meeting, commissioners took
care of other business:
The board adopted land development regulations
that reduce the setback from privately or publicly owned


"reservation and preservation" areas from 330 feet to
100 feet. Commissioners felt the setback was too deep
and deprived landowners along these areas of their
development rights. The county negotiated with the
Florida Department of Community Affairs for two years
before DCA agreed to the narrower setback.
Commissioners voted to send a resolution to
the county legislative delegation urging the Florida
Legislature to fund the Resource and Family Lands
Protection Act. The law was adopted in 2001 to
bring under public protection lands that serve to limit
subdivision and conversion of agricultural and natural
areas that provide economic, open space and water and
wildlife benefit. Among other things, it authorizes the
state to enter into conservation agreements to promote
and improve wildlife habitat, protect and enhance water
bodies, aquifer recharge areas, wetlands and watersheds;
maintain open space on lands with significant natural
areas and protect agricultural lands threatened by
conversion to other uses. The resolution adopted by
commissioners acknowledges that Levy County is
experiencing development pressure in rural areas and
premature development on rural lands that is in conflict
with comprehensive plan policies to reduce urban sprawl
and direct growth to planned areas.
The board said it will ask to have Levy County
re-designated for five more years as one of 14 counties
in North Central Florida that are part of the third Rural
Area of Critical Economic Concern. The designation
is intended to help the 14 rural counties compete
economically with other parts of the state.


Bomb, from Page 1


and two at Chiefland High School. No bombs were found, but the schools had to be
evacuated for the protection of students. He said five students have been arrested.
"The sad thing is you have to evacuate the entire school," he said.
The 14-year-old arrested on March 26 is charged with falsely reporting the planting
of a bomb or explosive, a felony, and with one misdemeanor count of disrupting
schools or other assemblies. He has been suspended from school.
Chiefland Middle School Principal Robert Turnipseed said the school's crime
watch program coupled with security cameras mounted at the ends of major hallways
and at the entrance to bathrooms has proved effective in catching those who write
bomb threats on walls.
He said the suspects are interviewed as soon as they are identified.
"They (the police) handcuff them and march them right out," Turnipseed said.
"The majority of the kids don't like it (the threats). They don't like being evacuated."
The school is using sophisticated cameras-that record the time as students pass
under themi'St udnfits in the' crime watch 'program check the bathrooms every 15
,minutes to look for bomb threats written on the walls.
If a threat is discovered, the cameras can identify which students entered the
Bathrooms at the time the threats were made.
"I hope it stops it," Turnipseed said.
^1 The 14-year-old who wrote the threat on March 26 at first denied being responsible
|for the crime, but later relented and gave officers details about how he committed the
*act, the arrest report said.
; The report said the boy said the reason for leaving the note was "he did not feel
,like going to school the rest of the day so he decided to write the note."
! "(Suspect) remained cooperative during police investigation. The Chiefland
!Middle School was temporarily evacuated and the high school was locked down as a
Result of (suspect's) actions," the report added.
| The boy was taken to a juvenile detention facility after his arrest and transported
|to the Levy County Jail.
SIn other police news:
SVernon Henry Davis, 44, 406 SE 8th Terr., Chiefland, was arrested
March 27 on charges of swindling residents out of money in three separate
cases spanning several months. On Feb. 3, Davis presented realtor Owen
Baynard with a $175 check from Florida Credit Union for cashing. Baynard
cashed the check, thinking it was legitimate, but the check had been stolen. In
a second incident on Jan. 24, resident Linda Machen paid Davis $276 to do
home remodeling work. Davis left with the money but never did the work. In

the third incident, reported on March 27, resident Linda Merritt paid Davis
$200 for home remodeling work. He left with the money and never returned to
do the work. Davis was arrested on theft charges.
Bradley Dean Kruise, 17, 10551 NW 66th Ave., Chiefland, was arrested
March 29 onf three charges of retail theft and one count of dealing in stolen
property, a felony. Police say Kruise walked from the Radio Shack store with
an MP3 music player concealed on his body. Radio Shack employees reported
the theft. Later, Kruise removed a cellular telephone from Wal-Mart without
paying for it. He then stole bicycle and rode back to Radio Shack in an attempt
to pawn it, police said. He failed to pawn the cell phone, but managed to steal
more merchandise from Radio Shack. Police used security camera footage and
statements from store employees to piece together what Kruise had done in the
two stores. Kruise was later arrested at the U.S. Army Recruiter's office. Police
recovered one of the stolen items.

Fair, from Page 1

Gilchrist County School Superintendent Buddy Vickers
and Smith's Law Firm.
Cory Jerrels ofKountry Kids 4-H in Bronson, received
$6 per pound for his reserve champion fat steer. The steer
was purchased by Anderson Columbia, Jonnie Hall, LLC,
Ebenezer Baptist Church, RHCI Construction, Inc., CMD
Trailer Sales. The steer sold for $7,267.20.
Fair buyers were faced with a monumental task. They


were tasked to buy 66 fat steers, 141 feeder steers and 252
hogs. The hogs sold for an average price per pound of
$3.50. The feeder steers sold for an average of $3.11 per
pound and the fat steers sold for an average of $2.57 per
pound.
Many of the young people who participated in the fair
and the sale won't work in agriculture as adults, Smith
said. But he said that's not the point of the fair. The fair
is intended to be a learning experience. It also teaches
responsibility. They must feed and groom a market animal
and teach it to compete in showmanship competition over
a period of months.
"The projects teach them many things; including
helping them to prepare for what they will do in the
future," he said.

Sheriff says audit critical, but he's fixing problems


Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Sheriff Johnny Smith confirmed Tuesday his department has received a critical
audit report for the way it handles its finances, but he said he is preparing to fix the
problem with more training for the person who administers the financial department.
Smith said auditors for Davis Monk & Monk gave him a preliminary verbal outline
last week of the problems they encountered while examining last year's spending plan,
and while it wasn't a pretty picture, there is no money missing.
"No money is missing. Every dollar is accounted for," Smith said. "That's been a
sticking point with me."
The sheriff said he has hired certified public accountant Sharon Brannen to work
with Barbara Pendray, the sheriff's office director of finance, to correct the deficiencies
found by the county's auditors and make sure it doesn't happen again. She will begin
work in about 10 days.
"Everything is accounted for. I think Barbara is doing a good job. I just need to get
her some training to streamline some of the things," Smith said.
The final audit report from CPA Martha Garcia will be made available to Smith


and the county commission in the near future. Audit reports contain recommendations
on how to correct problems with budgetary bookkeeping.
The sheriff said there are no allegations of dishonesty in the audit. Citing one
example, he said one federal grant "may have been placed in the wrong section." The
money is there, he said. It's just in the wrong place.
He said he has considered hiring a certified public accountant to run the finance
department, but he said that would be a much greater expense. He said he believes he
can straighten out the problems by giving Pendray more training.
Some of the problems date back to terminated employee Cheryl Tindall, Smith
said. He said the sheriff's office found that Tindall, who worked for Pendray, had not
paid some of the sheriff's office bills for at least 30 days. He said Pendray thought
she had corrected all of Tindall's paperwork problems, but it turns out that wasn't the
case.
"She simply didn't pay the bills on time," Smith said. "Some were 30 days late and
some of the problems date back to her."
Smith said the $12.8 million sheriff's office budget has become increasingly
complex with the addition of grants and the county jail operation, but he is hopeful
more training will solve the problem. If not, he hasn't ruled out hiring a CPA.

be used as a community center. "And we would need to
install a sprinkler system that would cost $100,000."
According to town records, the original grant
estimation listed the sprinkler system budget as $7,500.
Currently the Bronson Town Hall is staffed by one
fulltime employee, Town Clerk Donna Conquest. Some
office space is also used by Public Works Director Jimmy
Dunford and Schuler.
Council meetings will still be held at the traditional
Town Hall due to space constraints in the Jackson
House. During the council meeting, Conquest said that
the building will also be used as office space for the Fire
Department and the Youth League.
"When was that decided?" Weeks asked his fellow,
council members. "This is the first I've heard of that."
"It has not been decided," Conquest said, "It's just
what they have talked about." When the question was
raised regarding who "they" were, the mayor interjected
that no plans for the current town hall building have been
officially determined.
"I want an open government," Weeks said. "I want
this town and this council to utilize all five members of its
council no more backroom decisions." Six months in
office makes Weeks the newest member of the council.
History
The Jackson House was originally owned by James
M. Jackson, a local physician and citrus farmer. After a
freeze itn 1e latemneteenth century wiped out his groves,
Jackson moved to Miami where Jackson Memorial
Hospital was eventually named in his honor. Later, the
Stokes family owned and resided in the home for more
than 70 years before it was purchased by Perkin's State
Bank. When the bank donated the house, it appraised at
$65,436.
Plans and grant applications called for the house to be
turned into the "Jackson Memorial Community Center,"
to provide "access to clubs and other organizations,
especially the AfricanAmerican and Hispanic Churches,"
according to the Jackson House Project Report prepared

by Conquest. The town clerk said that once she saw how
small the rooms were, she suggested to the council that
the house "would make good office space," and proposed
the usage as a town hall.
Mongo said that she has confirmed with the state
that changing the type of use from a community center
to a town hall will not go against the state-funding
specifications.
During planning stages, the town purchased a
separate property in January 1998 that was owned by
former-mayor Jaime Griffin for $75,000 with the intent
to relocate the Jackson House. The property appraises
today for just $30,950. However, the House was pot
moved to the Griffin property; instead it was transported
to the current location next to the Bronson Fire and
Rescue Department on land already owned by the town.
The move cost $23,813 plus additional expenses to
prepare the new site.
According to town records, some work was
completed on the building prior to 2005, at which time
it was discovered that while it had been sitting empty
for years, there was significant weather damage to walls,
floors and roof.
New construction was started in 2007. The town has


since spent $374,933.33 in building expenses.
Bronson received an Historic Preservation Grant
from the state totaling $166,500 back in 1998. The grant
was designed to cover all costs in restoring the home
to its original state. These costs also included fencing,
security, parking, and landscaping none of which has
been done. According to town officials, none of the grant
money was spent on the Jackson House, a situation they
blame on convicted embezzler and former-mayor Jaime
Griffin. The town was faced with the choice of returning
the grant money to the state or using money from its own
budget to fulfill the grant obligations.
"So yes, the project went over budget, but what were
the options?" Conquest said. "Let the building continue
to deteriorate until it was beyond repair?"
During the restoration process, the lathe and plaster
walls were replaced by drywall, and the hardwood floors
were replaced by synthetic copies. The fireplaces, after
being removed for unknown reasons, were replaced with
historically inaccurate hearths. An air-conditioning duct
runs along the ceiling covered by a drywall cutout, the
windows are double-pained, and a waist-high counter
greets visitors as they walk in the front door -all of which
are historically inaccurate.
Weeks asked the council, "What happens when the
State comes in and sees that we didn't restore that house
to its original state? We'll have to pay the grant money
back." to ,
Mongo said that they did the-best-they-could. "It was
a mess we had to clean up."
Weeks asked the council again about their money
spending. "How did you spend $374,933.33 without
once voting on it? I've searched through all the meeting
minutes, and I can't find one single vote to proceed with
spending," he said.
All told, counting the grant money, the moving
expenses, and the renovations beginning in 2007, the
Historic Jackson House Bronson's new Town Hall
- has cost taxpayers approximately $643,000.

It was a senior night that saw two
tremendous athletes honored before the
game began as the Lady Red Devils
hosted the Santa Fe Lady Raiders.
Lady Red Devils Margaret Brown and
Heather Porter were honored by the large
crowd of Williston fans before the Lady
Red Devils played outstanding defense
in downing the Lady Raiders 7-3.
In the earlier match up between the
two teams at Santa Fe, the results were
quite different, as the Lady Raiders
downed the Lady Red Devils 8-0 in a
game that Coach Robert Patterson said
his Lady Red Devils were just not ready "
to play.
Starting off their last regular season
home game, the Lady Red Devils were
certainly ready to play this time.
The Lady Raiders Kaitlyn Broggon
started the game with a double to right
center field, but was left stranded at third
base as the next three batters were put
down in order.
The Lady Red Devils lead off batter
Crissy Rawls beat out a slow dribbler to
third and was on with a single. Rawls
stole second then took third on a bunt laid
down by Samone Cannady who was safe
at first base. After two outs Rawls came
home on a wild pitch to give the Lady
Red Devils a 1-0 lead. Dayna Hunn then
corked a drive down the third base line to
the fence for a triple scoring Cannady for Williston's pitcher Tori Stamper fires a pitch against

The Bronson Eagles hosted the Bell
Bulldogs on Friday night in a district boys'
baseball contest.
The Bell Bulldogs came away with the
win 5-3 despite a brilliant relief pitching
effort by the Eagles Kelby Barber.
The Eagles scored one run in the
bottom of the first as Barber blasted a two-
out double and scored as Steve Wimberly Y
followed with a single down the first base
line into right field.
The Bulldogs jumped right back on :
the Eagles and scored three runs in the top
of the second inning to take a 3-1 lead as Bronson coach Mike Pogue
the Eagles ended their second inning goingball to relief pitcher Kelby Ba
three and out.
The Bulldogs threatened to blow the game wide open in the top of
the third inning as the first three Bulldog batters loaded the bases with
no outs and two base hits and a walk.
Bronson Head Coach Mike Pogue called time out and brought Barber
to the mound from his shortstop position to pitch for the Eagles.
All Barber did was strike the first two batters out swinging. With
two strikes on the next batter, Barber, pitching from the stretch, stepped
back off the pitching rubber and ran at the runner who had taken a


after three innings of play.
The Lady Raiders put on their hitting
hats to start the fourth inning as Broggon
started the inning with her second double
of the game that was followed by a triple
by Ann Marie James and a single by Ashley
Owens to make it a 4-2 score.
The Lady Red Devils retired the next
three hitters leaving Owens stranded.
In the bottom of the fourth inning the
Lady Red Devils Kayla Thorrington started
off with a walk, followed by three straight
singles by Alneidra Graham, Rawls and
Cannady.
Thorrington scored on Rawls single,
before Brown hit a deep fly ball to center
field that was dropped, scoring Graham to
give the Lady Red Devils a 6-2 lead.
As the fifth inning got underway Lady
Raider Megan Fortson singled and scored
on a two-out double by James making it a
6-3 ballgame. The Lady Red Devils failed
to score in the bottom of the fifth leaving
the bases loaded.
Again the Lady Red Devils defense
was outstanding as they sat the Lady
Raiders down in order in the top of the
sixth inning.
Brown led off the bottom of the sixth
for the Lady Red Devils with a triple and
scored as Heather Porter drew the throw to
first that went over the first baseman's head
and sent Porter to second.
The Lady Red Devils ended the inning
with a 7-3 lead.
One last time the Lady Raiders failed
to get a base runner as they were set down
in order ending the game.
Following the game, Patterson said his

The score remained 3-1 with the
Bulldogs hopes for a big inning being
stopped by what was to be a brilliant
pitching relief performance by Barber.
Barber finished the game striking out
13 batters in five innings of relief.
The Eagles Wimberly collected his
second hit of the game to start the bottom

inning, and both Bulldog base runners scored on throwing errors by the
Eagles to put the Bulldogs up 5-2.
Barber struck the side out in three of the five innings and recorded
two strikeouts in the other two innings.
In the bottom of the seventh innings the Eagles scored another run
as AJ Graham scored from third on a wild pitch. The Eagles left two

By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

The 16th annual Kissimmee Klassic Invitational Softball Tournament held in
Kissimmee was shortened on Saturday afternoon by harsh rain and hail storms.
The championship game winners were eventually decided by coin tosses.
The Williston Lady Red Devils placed fifth in the Klassic with a tremendous
showing, ending up with a 2-1 record (3-1 with coin toss) for the three day shortened
tournament.
The Lady Red Devils downed 5A Tallahassee Chiles 12-1 April 3. The Lady Red
Devils faced 2A defending state champion Mount Dora Bible and fell 11-5 as the
Mount Dora Bible team took advantage of walks and good base running for the win.
On Saturday morning the Lady Red Devils faced 5A Satellite Beach. The Lady
Red Devils took the win 6-4 over the Lady Scorpions.
The tournament was called by the officials due to the inclement weather as the
Lady Red Devils were warming up to play 4A Bradford Starke.
The Lady Red Devils won the coin toss and returned home from the Klassic with
a 3-1 record and the fifth place trophy.
In the three games played, senior Margaret Brown led the Lady Red Devils at the
plate going 8-10 with a walk. Freshman Crissy Rawls was 6-9 with 3 walks. Freshman
Dayna Hunn was 6-11 going 4-4 in game one for the Lady Red Devils.
The Lady Red Devils have wrapped up their regular season of play and will now
prepare for the 3A district play-offs that begin Monday April 21-24 in Ft. White.

dumps a load in my chili, and brings it to me with a
big smile. I get a slice on my hamburger without even
asking for it.
But they went too far when they started putting
it on my fish sandwiches, because love a good fish
sandwich.
The biggest culprit is that one fast food restaurant.
I won't name names, but let's just call it "Donald
McRonalds." I will pull up to the drive-thru and ask,
in plain English, for a Fish McFly with no cheese.
The young man on the intercom will hesitate like I
just spoke Swahili, and then he will ask me to drive
around. And sure enough, when I unwrap that fish
sandwich, there will be cheese on it. Melted all over
it.
I got upset the other day and went into one
of those Donald McRonalds, I believe it was in
Gainesville, and demanded my money back. I said
that I had ordered that sandwich without cheese. The
young man looked at me in disbelief, and then said he
didn't think I was serious. Like the whole world loves
cheese and no one in his right mind would dare order
a sandwich without it.
The manager came over and wanted to know what
was the problem, and I told him. I said I had ordered
that fish sandwich without cheese, and if he could
not make that happen, then I would take my business
elsewhere.
"Well, have you tried one of these sandwiches
with cheese on it?" he asked with a straight face.
"They are actually pretty good." .
And that burned me up.
I told him that if I had wanted the thing with
cheese, I would have ordered it that way.
"Do you eat cheese on pizza?" he asked.
"Of course I eat cheese on pizza," I said. "I
didn't just fall off the turnip truck. But you don't put
cheese on a fish sandwich, and you don't put it on
hamburgers. Or chili."
Later, when I had settled down, I felt bad about
having made such a big deal out of it. The young
guy at the window, jkst old enough for his voice to
be changing, has probably never had a fish sandwich
without cheese. And it is very likely that neither he,
nor the manager has ever enjoyed a calm ride down
the Suwannee, baiting hooks and catching fish left and
right. Fish without cheese on them.


In its February meeting in Panama
City Beach, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved the "Strategic Plan
for Deer Management in Florida
2008-2018." The plan describes the
state's history of deer management, its
current status and outlines a 10-year
strategic direction through a series of
well-thought-out goals, objectives and
strategies.
Even though the plan was just approved, FWC's
Deer Management Team is already working hard to
begin implementing the steps necessary to achieve the
plan's objectives the overall goal being to ensure
healthy deer populations that will meet the public's
desires for recreational hunting, while protecting
private property and ensuring the long-term welfare of
the species.
This living-and-breathing plan continues to
be a collaborative effort between FWC staff and a
stakeholder group representing many of the state's
hunting and conservation organizations/associations,
other governmental agencies and large private
landowners that lease much of their properties to
hunters.
Valuable input is being gathered from these
stakeholders, which include the Future of Hunting
in Florida, Florida Wildlife Federation, Allied
Sportsmen's Associations of Florida, United Hunters of
Florida, Traditional Bowhunters Association, Florida
Bowhunters Council, Everglades Coordinating Council,
Florida Sportsmen's Conservation Association,
Kissimmee River Valley Sportsman Association,
Unified Sportsmen of Florida, Florida Dog Hunters and
Sportsman's Association, Lykes Brothers, Department
of Environmental Protection, U.S. Department
of Defense, U.S. Forest Service, Quality Deer
Management Association, St. Joe Land Co., Deseret
Ranch, National Rifle Association and all five Florida
water management districts.
FWC's deer team has met regularly over the
past year and a half, developing the plan and is now
beginning the tedious process of compiling the many
varied ideas and opinions on how F1qrigda's deer should
be managed. The process ofhashing odt all of the
details is challenging, but the team and stakeholder
group are committed to making the plan a reality.
Together, these folks are spending countless hours
going over every detail, obstacle, theory and strategy
that needs to be considered and worked out so the
management plan's ambitious goals and objectives will
be realized. Much more hard work lies ahead, but the
strategic plan provides a good roadmap for moving
forward.
Florida's deer are unlike any other state's, and
there are no clear-cut, easy fixes that can be applied
in "broad-brush" fashion to solve every issue. Much
of our state is not blessed with rich soils capable of
producing high-quality, year-round nutrition for deer,

so you can't just take what another state
is doing for deer management and apply
it to Florida.
Because Florida's northern-tiered
counties that border Georgia and
Alabama actually do have pretty fertile
soil, you have to manage that herd
differently than you would the deer
living in areas of the state with poorer
habitat. So the plan includes the idea
of creating deer management units
(DMUs) to help manage deer at a more
local level. The factors going into where
the lines may be drawn include areas
with similar habitat, soil compositions,
geographic features and timing of the rut. Major roads
and rivers will be used as boundary lines when possible
to make the DMUs easy to delineate.
Now there's probably not going to be different
hunting season dates for each DMU; that would be too
complicated and unnecessary. But it is possible that
more hunting regulation zones than the three we have
may,be necessary.
Besides creation of DMUs, other possible ideas
being considered include changes in hunting seasons,
better ways to ensure harvest success for a greater
number of hunters and monitoring the long-term effects
of antler restrictions on wildlife management areas
(WMAs).
Speaking of antler restrictions, at the February
Commission meeting, rules were passed on 21 WMAs,
which put a 3-points-on-a-side antler restriction on
legal bucks. These areas are Apalachee, Pine Log,
Wakulla, Belmore, Four Creeks, Hatchet Creek,
Homosassa, Jennings Forest, Big Bend Tide Swamp
Unit, Richloam Baird Unit, Bull Creek, Caravelle
Ranch, Guana River, Seminole Forest, Arbuckle, Lake
Marion Creek, Upper Hillsborough, Okaloacoochee
Slough, Dinner Island Ranch, Jones/Hungryland and
Spirit-of-the-Wild.
Additionally, Tate's Hell State Forest and Tate's
Hell Womack Creek Unit in the Northwest Region will
have a forked-antler (2 points on a side) restriction.
The new antler rules on all of these areas will be in
effect during the 2008-09 hunting season.
Other proposals under consideration include a
tag-and-report system, where hunters would tag deer
immediately after the take and shortly afterwards,
report the harvest. Methods for reporting deer harvest
information may include calling a toll-free telephone
number or entering the harvest information through the
Internet.
As different aspects of the plan and associated
proposals are fleshed out further by FWC staff and
the stakeholder group, a series of surveys and public
meetings will be conducted around the state to gather
input from the general deer hunting public and
landowners.
In the meantime, if you'd like to view a copy of the
"Strategic Plan for Deer Management in Florida 2008-
2018," go to MyFWC.com/hunting and look under
"Additional Hunting Seasons, Regulations, Permits and
More."
Stay tuned.

Petty politics ruins


'Away From Her'

By Rick Burnham
Editor

"Away From Her" is a love story, and all that
that entails. If you have problems with love stories,
with long periods of sappy dialogue (I love you.
I love you, too) you might be better off renting
something with
Bruce Willis, or New In DVD
Clint Eastwood.
But if you like love stories and enjoy decent
acting with characters facing the most difficult of
life's challenges, then maybe "Away From Her" is
for you.
The challenge in question for Grant and Fiona
Anderson (Gordon Pinsent and Julie Christie) is
Alzheimer's Disease, and the debilitating effects it
has on a person's mind. Fiona has it, and the movie
opens with her slowly losing her grip. She gets lost
in the nearby woods. She goes cross-country skiing
after leaving a stove burner on.
Grant witnesses those events, and sees his
wife's condition spiral continuously downward.
Finally, the couple comes to a conclusion that Fiona
must be placed in an institution tailored to help
those with Alzheimer's. Grant changes his mind at
the last moment, vowing to take care of his wife,
but Fiona opts to go in.
Whey they separate, most of you will bust out
crying.
From there, the movie takes a series of twists
and turns that make for compelling drama. Fiona's
condition worsens, and Grant is left to deal with
the consequences. The movie perfectly illustrates
how the disease can be devastating to not only the
victim, but to family members and loved ones as
well.
Both Christie and Pinsent are fair but not
great in their respective roles. Olympia Dukakis
contributes a decent convincing supporting
performance.
Aside from a couple of random bursts of strong
language, there is little in "Away From Her" that
would make the movie unsuitable for children,
teenagers or senior citizens.
The only violence in the whole film is a
television clip seen by residents of the sliecial care
home where Fiona lives. In that clip, American
soldiers essentially execute a Middle Eastern
man as the cameras roll. The scene adds nothing
to the plot of the movie and is little more than a
shameless attempt at partisan politics by ultra-
left-leaning Hollywood. Pathetic. Predictable, and
pathetic.
"Away From Her" is available at movie rental
locations throughout the tri-county area.
Each week, New in DVD 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.

Journal says 'so long' to Wilma Jean

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent


"March is my month, I guess," said Wilma Jean
Asbell on her retirement from the Levy County
Journal, twelve years to the month since she
retired from the Florida Farm Bureau.
"We will all miss her very much," said Robin
Heath, Chiefland Office Manager for the Journal.
Ms. Asbell started working for the Journal in
December 1998 as a typesetter. Mostly part time
- two days a week she has spent the past nine years
typing legal notices and classified ads, answering
telephone calls, writing the occasional article and
helping out with all the general functions of an office.
"I did a little of everything," she said.
Ms. Asbell worked for the Farm Bureau for 39
and a half years. "And I managed to stay fully retired
for more than two years," she said. This time around
she plans to maintain her retirement status. She has
plenty to keep her busy with three children, seven
grandchildren and two great-grandchildren all of
whom live in either Levy or Alachua County.
"No, I don't need a dog," she told her son after he
suggested the companionship. "I want to be able to


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday April 2 at the
Levy Co. Quilt Museum. One quilt out and one
started. We now have the Log Cabin Quilt to be given
away in December in the frame, and it should be
finished by June. We will be putting another one in as
we usually have four quilts that are being worked on.
How good it, was to see Goldie back at the quilt; she is
doing well.
Pat Osowiecki has been in an accident but is
doing well. Joy McCraney is recovering from being
hit several weeks ago; she has broken bones, and it
will be awhile until she can sew again. We do a lot of

Hi Everybody!
Sunday April 6, MAss Honey
2008, here I sit in my
recliner surrounded
by love, yes puppy love! and also the love of
Jesus, oh what would I do without Jesus and his
mercy!
He never leaves me alone! He rides with me
when I ride, he sits beside me in my recliner, he
goes with me wherever and whenever I leave
home. He keeps his protection on me at all times
and yes he supplies my every need. I could not
survive without Jesus, and yes I have many
friends who love me, and I thank God for each of
you! Thanks Jackie, you are a real friend! May
God bless you always!
I guess it's later. It is now 6 p.m., and I have just
wasted a day doing nothing but working puzzles
(crossword), and I visited A& A Restaurant this a.m.,
also the Family Dollar store, and then came back
home and fed my little ones. I couldn't let them
outside because of the rain, and they have worn me
out! But I love them all! Would you give away your
children? Well these little ones love me, and I love
them.


I never see my kids anymore, but these little ones

and plans to see as much as her health will allow.
"Spontaneous trips are great because you don't have
time to talk yourself out of anything," she said.
Ms. Asbell has contributed greatly to the Levy
County Journal and her absence will be felt by all of
us at the paper. We wish you a very happy retirement,
Wilma Jean. Bon voyage!


praying, as there is so much to be taken care of.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday, and our garden
is growing. We hope everyone will plant as the price of
everything is going up and there is nothing like picking
a tomato off the vine. We have seed planted in every
space we can find. Now we wait to see it come up.
Lunch was so good with meatloaf, mashed potatoes
and gravy, collards, potato casserole, chicken and
rice, tomatoes, chocolate cake, pound cake, brownies,
biscuits, fruit salad and more. Fourteen present.

Terriers put on a show in Williston
By Rick Burnham
Editor
Don't blink. You
will surely miss them
- speeding by with colored
bandanas, and with names
like "Bullet" and "BJ" and
"Little Caesar."
It's "Jack-Russell
Mania," a series of races
featuring little dogs
with big hearts. A large
contingent of Jack Russell
Terrier owners from around the state met Saturday at the Williston Horsemen's Park
for a series of races, and the action .as fast and furious.
John Tyno, president of the Sunshine State Jack Russell Terrier Club, said
Saturday's festivities featured more than 100 dogs, along with their respective
owners.
"We have a number of different events around the state," he said. "Usually
the sanctioned time trials are here in Williston, but we also do exhibitions in other
towns."
JRTCA's website lists a series of traits common to the Jack Russell Terrier that
gives added insight into the tireless fury of the dog.
First and foremost, the site says, Jack Russells are hunting dogs. The traits and
skills that make them excellent hunting dogs (digging, barking, aggressive nature,
ability to follow scent) are often interpreted as bad habits that cause people to give
them up.
Jack Russells are bred.to go underground, following a scent to locate and bark at
quarry until they are dug down to or the quarry leaves. If they do not have an outlet
for their natural instincts, they will invent new and fun jobs for themselves, which
frequently include guardian of the world or their possessions and family, chasing
cars, hunting birds, bugs or leaves, or endlessly digging in the soil.
Jack Russell Terriers are a big dog in a little body. They have the same need (or
more) for exercise as a much larger dog and the mentality to match they think they
are at least 150 pounds, and are fearless, often challenging other dogs three times
their size.
Jack Russells are often aggressive with other dogs. Same-sex aggression and
aggression towards other breeds of dogs is well documented with this terrier. It is
strongly recommended that no more than two Jack Russells (of opposite sex only)
ever be permitted to stay together unattended.
