The Weekend Ahead

Things To Do
At times during the past week,
Spring seemed about as far away
as Christmas. But the weatherman
insists that ole man winter has made
his last gasp, and that it is now in fact
safe to head out for the weekend.
And what a weekend it promises
to be.
The 32nd Annual Pioneer Days
Celebration, for example, kicks off
at 10 a.m. Saturday, and offers fun
for the whole family. There will be
a re-enactment, a heritage village,
exhibitors and demonstrators. You
can witness live blacksmithing, as
well as yam weaving, and enjoy
plenty of festival food while, you are
at it. There will even be a barn dance.
Ever seen a barn dance? Call (386)
454-3950 for more.
Of course, if High Springs is a
little too far for you to drive, why not
head to Williston and check out the
3rd Annual Antique Car Show, also
on Saturday. You can spend the day
with the car of your dreams, while a
DJ plays plenty of oldies but goodies.
There will be food and beverages, a
50/50 raffle, and much, much more.
Just look for the signs two miles west
of the city offAlt. 27. Call (352) 528-
2893 for more info.
If you are into horsepower, just
not automobiles, then why not try the
"Horsin' Around Spring Festival"
on the Helping Hooves Farm,
near Archer. Gates open at 2 p.m.
Sunday. Organizers say you won't be
disappointed. The event will benefit
programs for kids and adults with
special needs, so you know it's for a
good cause. Call (352) 495-0533 for
more info.
Of course, with Earth Day right
around the comer (it is Tuesday), you
might want to get out and enjoy nature
at its best, right here in Levy County.
Ample opportunities abound to do
so, beginning with Florida's finest
waterway -- the historic Suwannee
River. Hope in a boat and check out
the springs. You will be glad you
did.
Whatever you choose to do, take
a moment or two to plan your trip
accordingly. Be safe, be courteous,
and come back home in one piece.

Drummonds are Citizens of the Year
Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Greater ChieflandArea Chamber of Commerce honored
Kay and Luther Drummond with the Citizen of the Year Award
Tuesday, recognizing their extraordinary lifetime of service to
the community as civic and community leaders.
Chamber President Paige Brookins summed up the
Drummonds as proof that "the path to greatness lies in sustained
service to the community."
Don Quincey, who introduced the Drummonds, said many
people sitting in the capacity crowd at Tommy Usher Community
Center have benefited from the generous contributions the
Drummonds have made to the community.

Chiefland area church members converged from
all directions on City Hall Saturday to pray for city
government.
The walk drew about 125 participants and
concluded on the lawn of City Hall with a prayer
circle around the flagpole.
Hardeetown Baptist Church Pastor Travis
Hudson, who organized the walk, said the group's
mission was simply to encourage the city to run
smoothly.
"We don't have any political agenda other than
praying for our city and community," Hudson said.
"We just believe our city government will operate
smoother. We just think the city would operate
better."
More than a dozen children, some just toddlers,
were part of the prayer circle. They were joined by
Mayor Teal Pomeroy and Commissioners Teresa
Barron and Sammy Cason.
The idea for the walk to City Hall was Hudson's.
The pastor said that in 2007 he placed a burden
on his heart about praying for the city and thought
about it for several months before taking the idea to
a meeting of pastors. He was chosen to organize the
event and made an appearance before the Chiefland
City Commission, which gave him permission to
conduct the walk.

Reports of gang rape lead to drug arrests


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A gang rape in Fanning Springs led to major drug busts in
Fanning and Chiefland April 2-3, and a sexual battery arrest on
April 4, according to Levy County Sheriff's Office investigators.
Arrested on a charge of sexual battery-multiple perpetrators
was Edwin Deleon "Coonie" Henry, 26, Chiefland, one of three
men accused of gang raping a woman they had given crack cocaine
laced with Xanax, a tranquilizer, investigators said.
The other two rape suspects are at large.
Sheriff's Lt. Evan Sullivan said the three men took turns raping
the woman. Two would hold her while the third committed the
sexual battery.
The victim told investigators she had smoked crack cocaine,
some of it laced with Xanax. She had witnessed the cocaine being
cooked and knew it was laced with the tranquilizer. She said she


knew the paralyzing effects of smoking crack laced with Xanax
from previous experience.
After consuming about $100 of cocaine, she said she became
high and one of the men called her into the bedroom. Inside the
bedroom he demanded payment for the crack she had smoked.
She refused, saying he had given it to her, according to the arrest
report.
The victim said the three men grabbed her by the arms and
throat, undressed and raped her. She later got a ride home from two
men who had come to the home to buy crack cocaine. She notified
the sheriff's office.
Sullivan said the sheriff's office obtained a search warrant to
look for DNA, clothing and drugs at the home.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force and
S.W.A.T. Team arrested nine people in the two-day investigation
that followed.

Task force finds large indoor pot farm, arrests four

By Terry Witt mw
Staff Writer


Investigators for the Levy County Chiefland Drug Task
Force seized more than a ton of marijuana on April 9 after serving
a federal Drug Enforcement Administration search warrant at a
farmhouse in the Williston area.
High-grade marijuana seized at 4150 NE 167th Court weighed
2,521 pounds and had an estimated street value of $1.2 million,
Sheriff's Lt. Evan Sullivan said. He said a two-story log home on
the property was used for packaging and drying marijuana plants.
Investigators found 978 pot plants in a 40 by 80 foot metal grow
house behind the log house.
The two suspects arrested at the farm had been culling out
the leaves and selling only marijuana buds. Found hidden in the
log home were Francisco Sac, 22, and Diego Chox-Guarchaj, 28.

City


to regulate


adult entertainment

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

City Manager Grady Hartzog said Monday
the city won't be able to ban adult entertainment
businesses from Chiefland, but it can adopt an
ordinance similar or identical to one passed by the
Levy County Commission that keeps the businesses
away from churches, daycare centers and schools.
Hartzog asked city commissioners to review
the recently adopted county adult entertainment
ordinance and consider adopting it and allowing the
county to handle the licensing, or creating the city's
own ordinance with similar language.
The idea is to adopt the new law within a
month or two, but Hartzog wants commissioners to
read the county's ordinance first and consult with
community members before bringing the issue back
for discussion.
The city manager said the city has not been
contacted by any adult entertainment business
owners desiring to locate in Chiefland, but he said
the move to adopt such an ordinance was prompted
by a group of church pastors about a year ago who
asked commissioners to regulate such activities, even
if a total ban was impossible.
At the time of the visit by the pastors, the
county commission was in the process of revising
its ordinance dealing with adult entertainment
businesses. The church pastors wanted the city to
take a look at the county's ordinance when it was
finished. That time has arrived.
City commissioners have been provided with a
copy of the county ordinance. The ordinance gives
the county some degree of power through licensing to
regulate adult entertainment businesses and additional
powers through zoning, according to Hartzog.
In the licensing portion, Hartzog said the county
can do a background check on the future owners to
insure they are not convicted felons. Through zoning,
the businesses can be kept away from churches,
schools and daycare center.
"The county spent a lot of time on it," Hartzog
said. "I feel comfortable with it."
The cit yhas ordinance on the books, adopted
years ago o Keep adult eiintertainment businesses out
of the clifbut Hartzogsaid times have changed and
the law is outdated.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he has received a
couple of phone calls from concerned citizens about

City ponders adding firefighters


Requests more information from chief


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Fire Chief John Ward asked Chiefland City
Commissioners Monday to once again consider his
request to fund six new paid firefighter positions with a
federal grant, but commissioners postponed giving him
an answer until they know if they can afford it.
Ward wants city commissioners to apply for grant
money through the federal Staffing for Adequate
Firefighter and Emergency Response (SAFER) program.
The grant would partially fund the positions for five
years, but the city would bear the entire $240,000 annual
cost starting in the fifth year.
Commissioners instructed Ward to collect more
information on how much money the county gives the
city in fire taxes to support the fire department and how
much of that money is actually spent for Chiefland fire
services. Ward estimated the county pays less than half
of the city's fire budget. The county has paid the city
$30,000 up to this point in the current budget.
The board was also interested in looking into
the possibility of funding city fire services with a
property assessment rather than a county property tax.
Commissioner Teresa Barron said a separate assessment
would make it easier for residents to see what they are
paying for fire services.
Barron also wanted assurances the city would have
the flexibility to reduce the requested number of grant-
funded firefighters if the city finds it can't afford the
matching funds. Ward said he believes there is flexibility,
but he will check on that as well.
I' don't think anyone on the commission is saying a
definite no, but we need the figures," Barron said.
Ward offered one recent example of why he believes
additional firefighters could save lives in the 240-square-
mile area that Chiefland Fire and Rescue covers through
its emergency response agreements with the county and
other departments.
The fire chief was called to a traffic accident late
Saturday afternoon at the comer ofNW 120th Street and
U.S. 19 in north Chiefland. A work truck driving south
on U.S. 19 ran a red light and broadsided a sport utility'
vehicle, city police said. The truck continued into the
parking lot of the Manatee Springs Motel, striking two
vehicles. Police said no one was seriously hurt.
Bit Ward said he was the only firefighter from
Chiefland available to respond. He said fortunately
Fanning Springs was able to back him up, but he said

driving with license suspended or revoked (habitual).
He was stopped in the parking lot of the Moose Lodge
after being pulled over for having one taillight out. The
deputy ran a license check and found Morgan's license
had been suspended on July 5, 2005.
Shannon Evelyn White, 31, 14350 NW 77th
Ave., Chiefland, was arrested April 5 on a writ of bodily
attachment, which is a warrant.
Robert W. Gardner III, 18, Chiefland, was arrested
April 6 on a charge of dealing in stolen property. He was
arrested for being in possession of a-stolen four-wheel all
terrain vehicle along with a 17-year-old Chiefland boy.
George Freeman Wilkinson, 30, 8749 SW
82nd Ave., Trenton, was arrested April 6 on a Levy
County warrant charging him with sale of a controlled
substance.
A 16-year-old Chiefland boy was arrested April
7 on two charges of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Police said the boy threw a blunt object that struck the
victim's car near County Road 345 and NW 70th Avenue
at 2 a.m.
Arlexa Devonta Graham, 24, 429 NW 12th Ave.,
Ocala, was arrested April 4 on a Levy County warrant
charging violation of probation no valid driver's
license.
Gary Andrew Sullivan, 31, 7233 NW 165th St.,
Trenton, was arrested on a Levy County warrant charging
him with violation of probation- aggravated battery with
a deadly weapon.
Norman Lockley, Jr., 21, 7117 SW Archer Road
#74, Gainesville, on Levy County warrants charging him
with sale and possession of cocaine.
RobertAllen Lusby, 50,212 NE 6th St., Chiefland,
was arrested April 4 on a Levy County warrant charging
him with issuing a worthless check. He was also arrested
on two separate warrants for aggravated stalking.
Henry Stephen Harris, 24, 189 Neeld St., Inglis,
was arrested on April 8 on a Citrus County warrant
charging him with violation of probation driving under
the influence and driving with license suspended or
revoked.
Paul Ohara, 22, Cross City, was arrested April 8


on a Dixie County warrant charging him with violation
of probation carrying a concealed firearm.
Marshall Mick Myrick, 18, 21491 NE 38th Place,
Williston, was arrested April 8 on a warrant charging
him with violation of probation disturbing the peace.


if something had gone wrong, such as vehicle fire, he
would have been all alone, were it for Fanning.
He said the fire department may not always be that
lucky.
"Luckily this department has done a whole lot with a
whole little for a long time," Ward said.
Ward said if the city grows and a hospital comes as
planned, along with future subdivisions, his department
won't have the manpower to respond to all the fires.
However, Mayor Teal Pomeroy noted that only eight
homes were built in Chiefland last year and hospital
officials haven't pulled a permit for construction.
Pomeroy said the hospital is supposed to be under
construction by August.
Commissioner Rollin Hudson estimated the fire
department's total budget would rise to about $330,000
in six years if the additional full-time firefighters were
added. The city would bear the full cost in the fifth year
under Ward's plan.
Ward and one other firefighter are the only paid staff
as it stands now. They are the only paid firefighters in
the county. Twelve volunteer firefighters provide much
of the city's manpower for fighting fires.
The Levy County Commission imposes aproperty fire
tax in the unincorporated areas of the county. The money
is supposed to pay at last half of Chiefland's firefighting
costs. The county has no county-wide fire department of
its own. It contracts with volunteer departments. Ward
said Morriston-Montbrook is considered the only county
fire department.
Adding six full-time firefighters would give him
two firefighters on each truck responding to fires seven
days a week, Ward said. He said that would be the bare
minimum he would need for a fire response. He said the
fire department responded to 845 calls in 2006 and 990
calls in 2007. Those numbers included responding to
accident scenes.
City Attorney Norm Fugate said the city is not
being paid by the county to send firefighters to accident
scenes, only to fires. But Ward sAid it is standard practice
throughout the nation for firefighters to respond to
accidents. He said they are often first on the scene.
Ward said attracting volunteers has become difficult,
largely due to the increased state training requirements.
The current requirement is for 160 hours of training, but
he said it will soon rise. When high school students4ook
at-the requirements to ,be ,.a volunteer,-4e said it often
turns them off or they figure it would be just as easy to
train for paid firefighting.

AROUND LEVY COUNTY

Dispatchers Unsung heroes


April 13-19, 2008 is
National Public Safety
Telecommunication Week. In
1991, Congress proclaimed this
particular week to nationally
recognize dispatchers across
our country. I want to take a
special moment to personally
honor the men and women
who serve as public safety
dispatchers for Levy County.
As Sheriff, I recognize
that dispatchers play a pivotal
role. They perform many
different responsibilities that
are absolutely crucial for the
functioning of this department.


SHERIFF'S

CORNER
SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH


Just a few examples of the many
roles they play include technical support,
computer skills, answering complaints,
dispatching calls and professionalism and
efficiency with dealing with the public. Not
only do they have to answer 911 calls, but
they also dispatch to the Sheriff's Office,
Chiefland Police Department, Cedar Key
Police Department, Inglis Police Department,
Fire Service, and Emergency Medical
Services. If taking care of all emergency
personnel in the county is not enough, the
dispatchers also have to enter all missing
persons, wanted persons, stolen tags and
vehicles into the Florida Crime Information
Center and National Crime Information
Center computer systems.
Dispatchers are truly the unsung heroes
of public safety. They sit in a dark room
looking at computer screens and talking to,
voices from faces that they will never see.
It's like reading a great suspense novel but
never getting to finish the chapters because
the next impending call requires undivided
attention.
When help is needed, the first person
the citizens will speak to is a dispatcher.
They are the calming influence of all and
the quiet, competent voices in the night that
provide the pillars for the bridges of sanity
and safety. Dispatchers are required to
make sense out of the frantic calls, no matter
how angry or frightened or hurt the callers


may be. Dispatchers meet the
anxiousness and adrenalin of the
terrified victims, angry citizens,
suicidal people, and grouchy
officers with reassurance and
competency. They are expected
to gather information from
highly agitated people who can't
remember where they live, what
their names are, or what they
just observed, and then they are
expected to relay this information
to the officers, firefighters, and
paramedics without error.
Dispatchers represent what
it means to "multi-task". At
any one time, dispatchers are


required to perform a myriad of
tasks including questioning a caller reporting
a burglary in progress, typing information
into a computer, dispatching a call while
at the same time putting another caller on
hold, and listening to a deputy run a license
plate. It's not like any of these things can be
improperly executed without consequence
either. To miss the plate numbers equates to
raising the officer's margin of error, and to
miss the caller's information may result in
endangering someone's life. Only a unique
and talented person can perform this job well.
The emotional roller coaster rolls to a stop
after a 12 hour shift just to begin all over again
the next day they work.
I regard the Levy County public safety
dispatchers as the backbone of this department.
In 2007, the Levy County Sheriff's Office
dispatchers handled 118,504 computer aid
dispatch events, over 18,000 911 calls, 5,375
EMS calls, and 618 Fire Department calls.
This is incredible, especially considering there
are only 14 employees. I commend and honor
the men and women for the fine job they do and
the professional attitudes they exhibit while
on duty. Your work does not go unnoticed. I
thank you for a job well done. *

Both listed the farm as their address. They were charged
federally with conspiracy to distribute and manufacture
more than 1,000 marijuana plants.
Later the same day, drug investigators served a state
search warrant at a different farm near the Levy-Alachua
County line and arrested William Jay Erickson, 54, and
Minerva Quintana, 53, at 20120 SW 91st Ave., Archer.
They were charged with conspiracy to distribute and
manufacture more than 1,000 marijuana plants.
The first grow house in the Williston area was
equipped with indoor grow lights, ballast, potting
soil and fertilizer and was cooled by a half dozen air
conditioners. Electrical power came from large diesel
generators and from the theft of power.
Sullivan said the residence was on 10.5 acres and
the drug operation was well organized, with an elaborate
alarm system that included a sensor near the front gate.
When drug investigators arrived they tripped the sensor.
The suspects attempted to shut down the operation when
the alarm was triggered.
Inside the log home, investigators found a cardboard


box stuffed with marijuana buds. The box of buds had
an estimated street value of $140,000.
Investigators had a busy day on April 9.
After the first bust at 4150 NE 167th Court in th&
Williston area, sheriff's office investigators developed
information that led to another indoor grow house at
12991 NE 100th St. on the Levy-Alachua County line.i
The Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force
obtained a state'search warrant for the residence. '
The 80-acre property included a 40 by 80 metal
shed identical to the one on the first property. It was also'
used as a grow house. Found in the grow house were;
160 marijuana plants. Agents had information that the
residence might be booby-trapped. The Alachua County,
Sheriff's Office Bomb Team assisted in searching and,
clearing the residence. No bombs were found. ,J
Two more search warrants were obtained by the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office for the same 80 acres,
part of which was in Alachua County. The DEA arrested.

Let common sense (not the media) be your guide


By Rick Burnham
Editor

One of the more wonderful things about those who
call north Florida home, perhaps about those who call
this whole region home, is that we were born with a
very high level of common sense. Perhaps it comes out
of necessity, perhaps practicality.
But for whatever reason, we've got it, in
abundance.
So it follows that not everyone here in north
Florida, in Levy County, needs to be led around by the
hand and told what to do. We can cross the street by
ourselves, and pick out what types of food we want to
put in our bodies, and we can select the make and year
of automobile we would like to drive down the road
every day.


We can also pick and choose the political
candidates we feel are best qualified to lead our local,
state and national governments into the future. We
listen to their qualifications, we gauge their stance on
the most important issues of our time, and we make an
informed and educated choice.
Despite having the ability to do so, we will no
doubt be swamped in the coming weeks and months
with newspaper articles telling us who to vote for,
and why. Someone with an advanced degree from an
esteemed university and an inflated ego to go along
with it will come along and offer his or her opinion on
why this person or that is the best candidate.
The audacity. Who asked them?
Nobody, of course. The powers that be in corporate
media circles decided long ago among themselves that
the general population was not quite intelligent enough


to make these sorts of decisions, and that it was their
inherent responsibility to offer assistance.
This would not be quite so bad if it were an
unbiased opinion being offered up by the media. But
hidden agendas abound in this carefully crafted advice.
The best interests of corporate media are not always in
sync with those of the general population.
You won't get that here. In the coming weeks,
we will go the extra mile to provide each candidate's
professional qualifications for the office he or she looks
to claim. We'll tell you where they stand on the issues
that mean the most whether it be taxes or health care
or education.
We'll do that, and then we'll take a step back. It is
your life to live, and your decision to make. We won't
insult your intelligence by attempting to make the
choice for you.


A BIG Thank You to
Rollin Hudson
of Hudson Farms for his
continued support at The
Suwannee River Fair.
I am very grateful!

When I was nineteen my grandpa broke down and
bought one of those fancy new fiberglass bass boats.
Papa was "Old School" though, and after only one
fishing trip he labeled the whole rig a
'new fangled waste of money.' He also
lambasted its new foot controlled trolling
motor with some mighty fancy Italian cuss
words.
It wasn't until after Papa declared
he was going back to fishing in his Jon
boat that my little brother Heath and I
recognized how we could profit from the
deal. We immediately began peppering
him with a volley of begging the likes the
world has never known.
Of course under such But A n
intense mental torment, Papa
eventually broke. He agreed to Gu
let us use the new boat, on the condition that
we'd leave right away.
Papa walked over to the little four-cylinder Datsun
B-210 I was driving at the time and quipped, "You
ain't got no trailer hitch der boy!" Then he turned on
me as if I should be ashamed. I shrugged coyly as he
dug angrily into his pocket and threw me the keys to
his pickup. I can still recall the'fiurrow in his. bushy
eyebrows as he watched us drive off.
We'd backed the boat in the lake twice before
realizing what a difference a little plug can make.
After bailing for half an hour we finally tore out from
the dock like we owned the place. We motored up and
down the lake most of the morning throwing our wake
on just about every unsuspecting fisherman around.
When that grew tiring I suggested we head out to the
river to find a little peace and quiet. "Yeah," Heath
agreed, "There's too many folks screaming at us around
here."
Once on the mighty Mississippi Heath started fishing
a big rock retaining wall that lined the little inlet. I was
fiddling with the new fangled trolling motor when I
heard him gasp. I looked up to see his eyes bugging
like two big grapefruits on a stick.
"What?" I asked. He just pointed. Apparently a huge
barge had just passed and we were about to engage the
wrath of its four foot wakes. Some on the lake that day
might've said a well deserved pay back was on the way.
I reached for the ignition, but my mind went blank
with fear. I kept turning the choke switch instead. That
didn't help!
The first of those monster swells nearly toppled us.
They threw that delicate little fiberglass boat up against
those rocks with a crash. I stuck out a paddle, Heath
gamely threw out a leg, but nothing would hold us
off. The waves were just too big. I began to hope that


maybe we'd drown so we wouldn't have to face Papa.
It was a somber boat ride back to the landing. We put
her on the trailer and checked the bottom. It was pretty
banged up. We could only hope Papa v
was too old to stoop down and see the
damage.
Heath was quick to shake it all off
and began begging me to let him drive.
"Why not," I huffed, "The day couldn't
get much worse." Besides, he'd be old
enough to get his license in a couple
of years and he'd need some practice
pulling a boat.
For some reason Papa's truck didn't
seem to have a lot of get up and go with
w aW .Heath at the wheel. It even began to
iywU y overheat. Heath showed wisdom beyond
Iy Sheffield his years by pulling over every time the
steam rose up and blocked his vision. We
agreed he could just make up for the delays by driving
faster between boil-overs.
On the last little stretch of gravel before making it
home I noticed a mighty cloud of dust coming up on us
fast. "Heath," I warned, "Don't you ever drive as fast as
that idiot on a gravel road!"
As the cloud blazed past HeatHi declared,That
looked'ike a B-210 hauling a Jon boatP' "Yeah," I said
with a sinking feeling, "A green one, just like mine."
I'm sure you've heard it said, "What comes around
goes around." Well that's just old school for what the
Bible says in Galatians 6:7. Be not deceived; God is
not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he
also reap. KJV
It's a great Scripture, except for when you're the one
who's been making the waves! Then even flipping the
choke switch won't help. You can expect to have your
bottom side tore up when those waves gather strength |
and turn back around.
Sin always comes with a big price tag. It will hitch
you up to some trailers that you're not equipped to haul.
Maybe your load is too heavy right now, and you feel
like your engine is about to boil. Pull over! Unhitch
that sin and hook up to the old plow of repentance until
the Lord can give you your vision back. It sure beats
pretending you're getting away with something when
you're not.
But anyway I ended up getting a free trailer hitch
out of the deal. It looked great welded to my Datsun Bi
210, which was already quite the chick magnet. Papa's!
truck eventually cooled off, but he said it would've
driven a lot better if we'd have taken the emergency
brake off! I can still recall the furrow in his bushy
eyebrows when he said it.

Alcohol continues to be problem for area youth


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A faith-based group that hopes to find solutions to
substance use among Levy County's middle and high
*school-age students was told recently that alcohol is the
most commonly used drug among those young people.
Robert Wells, chairman of Partners in Prevention
of Substance Abuse (PIPSA) Faith Based Coalition of
'Levy County, said a 2006 state survey of Levy County
students in 6th through 12th grades indicates underage
drinking is the biggest problem, though not the only
one.
The 2006 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey
'found that 57. 1 percent of Levy County students
reported lifetime use of alcohol while 33.3 percent
reported use in the previous 30 days.
But the same survey found lifetime marijuana use
among Levy County students had gone down from
28.5 percent of those surveyed in 2000 to 22.5 percent
in 2006, and pot use over the previous 30 days had
dropped from 16.5 percent in 2000 to 9.7 percent in
2006.
Less than 1 percent of the students surveyed used
the street drugs Ecstasy, Rohypnol, LSD or PSP, GHB,
ketamine, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine,
heroin, amphetamines and steroids.
The survey was administered to 856 Levy County
students in the spring of 2006. The information
collected was intended as a resource to help reduce
and prevent the use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs
by school-aged youth. Nicotine in cigarettes can be an
addictive drug.
Survey results were published by the Florida
Department of Children and Families.
PIPSA is organized through the state's SARG
program. SARG stands for Substance Abuse Response
Guide.
In 2004, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental
Health Services Administration awarded- the Florida
Governor's office a strategic prevention incentive grant.
The governor's Office of Drug Control assigned the
task of implementing the grant to the Department of
:Children and Families' Substance Abuse Program.
At the county level, coalitions like PIPSA were
formed to begin implementing the first phase of the
SARG program. They have begun gathering data and
identifying atthe local level what problems exists
and where substance abuse prevention efforts should
1be focused. They will also recommend strategies to
address the problems.
Wells described alcohol as the "gateway drug" that
provides children with access to other drugs. He thinks
underage drinking should be targeted, but wants to
'know what community members think.
Levy County Sheriff's Office School Resource
Officer Sean Mullins said the best thing parents can do



Hey!.


To Advertise Here


is to be involved with their children's lives and listen to
them.
"I tell my kids you will be asked to try drugs and I
won't be there to snatch up the dealers," he said.
He said he also encourages parents to lock up
prescription drugs.
Wells noted that Levy County doesn't have a
YMCA or a community youth center, but he said
that's one of the things the county needs to address the
problem.
Edith Brown reminded wells that the Levy County
Extension Service pays for youth camps all summer


Kimberly McLane


long and the Department of Juvenile Justice provides
programs when children are out of school.
One woman noted that many churches have church
vans and youth pastors who work with young people.
Wells said there are programs in the community, but
there are gaps in community services.
"We have all these programs, but kids are not taking
advantage," he said.
For more information please contact Mimi Johnson
at 352-361-6528 or Robert Wells at 352-528-3874.
PIPSA is set to meet on Monday in Bronson. The
location has not been announced.

Governor names Levy residents to water district


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Two Levy County businessmen, one from Chiefland,
the other Cedar Key, have been appointed by Gov.
Charlie Crist to serve four-year terms on the Suwannee
River Water Management District Governing Board.
Heath Davis, manager of Drummond Community
Bank's Cedar Key branch, and a clam farmer, along
with Don Quincey, owner of Quincey Cattle Company,
received the appointments.
Quincey said water is an important resource to him
personally and to this area of the water district. He said
he represents the Suwannee River Basin, an important
hydrologic area.
"We have to manage this resource using good science
and common sense," Quincey said.


Quincey said he owns a home on the Suwannee River
and has been around the river all his life. He said he sees
the importance of the river for the area and its hydrologic
value. He said the river also needs to be managed and
protected.
As time goes on and the state's population increases,
he said demand for water will increase and the district
will have to protect its resources.
"And, we'll have to keep South Florida off of us," he
said.
Davis, a Drummond Community Bank vice president,
but also president of his small clam production company
in Cedar Key, said he was introduced to the activities
of the water management district as a Cedar Key city
commissioner. With the help of the water district, Davis
said the city removed 108 'septic tanks and connected
those homes to the city's central sewer system, removing


a pollution source.
Davis said the water district also replaced earthen
berms and ditches along roads near the water with
underground grates covered by dirt. He said grates:
served the same pur pose as the berms and ditches
- to filter water from road runoff -- but without the
inconvenience of the ditches and berms.
He said the water quality around Cedar Key has
improved in the past seven years and he looks forward.
to continuing to those efforts.
"My goal of being on there is to protect the water.,
quality. We did a lot of that in Cedar Key," he said. "I.,
figure if we keep our water as clean as it is now or make:
improvement that will good for everyone -- clammers,
bankers, business people and even developers."

SCedar Key


Story and photos by Kellie Parkin
S'N Correspondent
S ,Thousands turned out over the weekend to enjoy the fine art festivities of the Old
Florida Celebration of the Arts in Cedar Key.
* Organized by the Cedar Key Area Chamber of Commerce, the juried festival had
S125 art booths. The artists were chosen out of nearly 300 who applied by sending slides
and pictures of their artwork to a three-member panel for selection, according to festival
coordinator Missy Jackson.
The festival featured art in a variety of forms, from oil painting to fine jewelry,
S sculpture to pottery and woodworking to instrument making.
"There are more mediums than I ever imagined existed," said Wynne Simpson,
who flew in from Colorado just for the arts celebration. "I came here first in 1974 it's
changed a lot since then." This was her first time back.
Simpson bought a Bowed Psaltery from Gene Jaeger's art booth. Jaeger has been
crafting the unique stringed medieval instrument for 28 years. "I heard him playing and I
had to see what it was," Simpson said. "I play the piano by ear, and he said it's a lot like
that. So I tried it and I could play!"
Cesar Negueira received two purchase awards from Pelican Realty for his gemstone
V bird carvings. "I carve the birds, and Mother Nature does the rest," he said. Negueira
started carving full time when he was laid off from work. "My wife gave me six
months. It's been more than 20 years now," he said.
Seventy-eight year old Jerry Spitzack has been creating kitchen art out of silverware
for sixteen years. "I was going to be golfing, but now I do this 40-50 hours a week. It's
fun, it keeps me out of trouble and it probably keeps me alive," he said. Spitzack
spent his life working multiple jobs in plumbing, heating, well-drilling, and building
houses on he side. This jack-of-all-trades also sold Lowery Organs and plays them by
ear. Upon retirement, he' moved to Florida and developed health problems. After hearing
about how busy his life had been his doctor told him, "you can't just go to Florida and
sit around," Spitzack said. Once he began making wind chimes and sculptures out of
silverware his health improved. "It goes to show you what boredom can do," he said.
Spitzack participates in 17 shows a year in Minnesota, South Dakota and Florida. "A
couple of buddies help me out one is 86 and one is 80. Shows you what some old guys
can do," he added with a gesture around the booth.
The festival was set up so that attendees could browse the art booths down three
blocks of 2nd Street and end up in the City Park for food, live music, and beach scenery.
The Lion's Club organized the concession stands and all were operated by local non-
profit groups such as churches, FFA and high school clubs.
This is the third year since the Old Florida Celebratation of Arts has gone back to a
juried format, according to Jackson. "It's been fantastic turnout has been good, and it
was perfect.weather -, we couldn't have asked for anything better," she said.

The Spring Protection Zone wraps around Chiefland and Fanning Springs. The boundary
of the SPZ is the thick jagged line.

County looks to improve springs
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
To the naked eye, the clear water flowing from Manatee Springs and Fanning
Springs looks good enough to drink, but the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection says both springs have elevated levels of nitrates, a pollutant often
associated with fertilizers and human waste.
FDEP found that nitrate-nitrite levels in Manatee Springs were 1.9 milligrams per
liter, measuring higher than 95 percent of Florida streams. In Fanning Springs, the
nitrate-nitrite concentration was 4.7 milligrams per liter, much higher than Manatee,
according to an FDEP eco-summary report.
What, if anything, should be done about it?
The Levy County Commission last week adopted comprehensive plan policies
and objectives aimed at protecting the quality of groundwater reaching Fanning
Springs and Manatee Springs by controlling how growth occurs in the land area
surrounding them.
One policy would require performance based septic tank systems by the year
2015 in the area identified as the Spring Protection Zone. Chiefland sits in the middle
of the SPZ, but the city is not affected by the new SPZ rules. The county SPZ includes
only unincorporated areas.
Performance based septic systems run off electricity and treat effluent to a
higher degree of purity than standard septic systems, but they can be expensive.
Commissioners decided not to mandate the new type of septic systems for seven
more years in hopes the technology will decrease in price by then. They could modify
the policy in the future if changes were needed.
Commissioners also exempted two zoning categories in the SPZ from the
requirement for performance based septic systems. Agricultural-Rural Residential
zones have minimum lot size of 10 acres and Forestry-Rural Residential lots har.e a
minimum lot size 20 acres. Commissioners felt big lots have enough open space to
provide adequate drainage for a standard septic tank.
The only exception to A-RR and F-RR zoning exemptions is previously subdivided
properties. If lot sizes in the old subdivisions are five acres or less, the requirement
for performance based septic systems would apply.
Commissioners began the spring protection process about two years ago when
Levy was selected by the Florida Department of Community Affairs as a model
county to plan for springshed protection. DCA hired consultant Gail Easley to work
with Levy County on the planning.
However, the planning wasn't accomplished until after county officials met with
representatives of the Florida Department of Community Affairs, the state's land
planning agencies, to discuss the status of the spring protection planning, according
to County Coordinator Freddy Moody. Public workshops were then held to gather
input from residents. The springs element will be sent to DCA for review.
DCA can reject the county's proposed policies and make recommendations for
changes.
When the comprehensive plan policies are final, the county will start the second
phase of springs planning. That will involve writing land development rules that
would implement the comprehensive plan policies. The LDC rules are much like
land zoning. They determine how property can be used.

FORT WHITE Tuesday's District 5 3A girls softball playoff
game between Chiefland and Dixie County offered a little of just about
everything.
Early on, it was a seesaw affair, with both teams taking leads only
to lose them the next inning. Midway through, it appeared to be a rout,
with Chiefland taking a 9-4 lead after four innings. Later on it was a
nail-biter anybody's ballgame to win or lose.
In the end, it was a relief for coach Wayne Weatherford and the
Lady Indians, who pulled out a 10-9 victory over the Bears.
Rebekka Wilkerson lined a two-out, sixth-inning hit to score Janessa
Barrios with the winning run as Chiefland advanced to a second-round
matchup vs. P.K. Yonge on Thursday.
Afterward, Weatherford appeared drained speaking favorably
about his team's clutch hitting, but lamenting over sloppy defensive
play by the Lady Indians, who saw a five-run lead evaporate into thin
air.
"Errors plagued us all evening," he said. "They just killed us."
Fortunately for Chiefland, Dixie County suffered from poor
defensive play as well. A throwing error in the bottom of the sixth inning
led directly to the winning run, and the Bears committed a handful of
other costly miscues.
Chiefland took advantage of those errors with timely hits, scoring
six of its runs after two out. Hagen Lewis collected two hits for the
winners, while Amie Grieves, Brittany Davis, Brooke Williams and
Janessa Barrios picked up one apiece. Williams' single in the bottom of
the fourth inning scored two runs and gave Chiefland when seemed to
be a comfortable cushion at 8-4. One out later, Barrios connected on a
hit to score Williams, and the Lady Indians took the driver's seat.
Dixie County battled back, however, with consecutive'doubles off
Davis, part of a four-run fifth inning that saw the Bears get to within 9-8.
Dixie would tie the game an inning later on a hit by Jessica Chewning.
But Chiefland quickly stopped the bleeding, getting three consecutive


plays by third baseman Cassie Labat to end the inning. That set the
stage for Wilkerson's big hit, a line drive into right centerfield to give
her team the lead, and eventually, the win.
Dixie County opened the game with a second inning run, only to
see Chiefland take a 3-1 lead an inning later. The Bears came back with
three of their own an inning later to lead 4-3, before Chiefland scored
twice in the bottom of the third to go up 5-4.

The Bronson Lady Eagles ran into a fired up Trenton Lady Tiger
Softball team in Bell on Tuesday evening and fell in five innings 14-2.
The Lad' Tigers scattered 16 base hits over five innings and scored
fourteen runs as they ran past the Lady Eagles.
Amanda Schwieterman, Brandy Matthews, and Casey Fischer went
3-4 at bat for the Lady Tigers and Terah Vick was 3-3.
The Lady Tigers scored in every inning as they continued to build
their lead over the Lady Eagles.


The Lady Eagles scored one run in the first inning and another
run in the third inning as they could manage just four base hits in the
game.
The Lady Eagles managed to keep the crowd in the game early.
CaseyKf'ilW-eored.from second base as Sara Shouse got on first base on
a dropped third strike by the catcher and an over throw to first base.
In the fourth inning, Lady Eagle pitcher Brittany Shipp blasted a
long ball that was caught at the fence, just short of a home run that
would have scored two runs.
The Lady Eagles are a very young team and will return all their
starting players next season and are sure to be much-improved.

Williston falls in


title game, 10-7

The Dunnellon Tigers pulled off the
10-7 win in the championship game
the same way the Williston Red Devils
did in their three wins to get to the
championship game.
The Red Devils came from behind
or were tied going into the bottom of
the sixth or seventh inning in all three
of their wins. It was superb hitting that
propelled the Red Devils to victory in
those three wins.
After jumping out to an early 2-0
lead, the 4A Dunnellon Tigers saw just
how potent the Red Devil hitting attack
can be. The Red Devils sent nine batters
to the plate in the bottom of the first
inning, scoring 5 runs off six base hits to
take a 5-2 lead.
St. Petersburg Junior College bound
Jessie Ginley was on the mound for the
Tigers in this championship game.
The Tigers added a run in the second
inning off two base hits to cut the Red
Devil lead to 5-3 after two complete
innings.
The pitching duel then set in between
Ginley and the Red Devils Danny
Etheridge.
Etheridge shut the Tigers down in the
third, fourth, and fifth innings.
Ginley did the same for the Tigers
until the Red Devils scored another run
in the top of the fifth as Damon Ming
scored Chris Morrow from second on a
liner up the middle.


The Red Devils took a 6-3 lead after
five innings and had out-hit the Tigers
seven hits to five.
The Tigers would not go away as they
scored one unearned run in the top of the
sixth inning, and with two outs and the
bases loaded the Tigers scored three more
runs on one base hit and two errors by the
Red Devils to take a 7-6 lead.
The Red Devils answered, scoring one
run to tie the game and almost another on
a very close call at home plate. Etheridge
was called out at home plate on a chest-
high tag as he slide under the catcher and
through home plate.
With the game now tied at 7-7 the
Tigers came up to bat in the top of the
seventh inning.
The Tigers broke the tie game open,
scoring 3 runs to take a 10-7 lead.
The Red Devils were unable to pull
off their fourth come-from-behind-last-
inning win in a row.
All in all this was a great four days of
high school baseball.
The two favorites going into the Red
Devil Challenge, the Chiefland Indians
and the Williston Red Devils, were both
beaten by championship trophy winner
Dunnellon Tigers.
Tigers Head Coach Tommy Boss said
after the game, "I am very proud of these
kids the way they hung in there and didn't
give up when they were behind. Williston
is a very good team and we just had to
keep playing consistent baseball and wait
for our opportunity."

Branford stops Bronson baseball in five innings, 12-0


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

The Eagles ran into a stout Branford Buccaneer team April 11 following a busy
week of district action for the Eagles.
After an April 10 win by the Eagles scrambled the district standings and gave
Bronson a shot at a runner up spot in their district, the Eagles ran into a buzz saw
against Branford.
The Buccaneers, behind a strong pitching effort, good hitting, and great base
running, scored early and often to take the 12-0 win.
After falling behind 2-0 in the first inning and 7-0 in the second, the Eagles AJ

5-4 win over West Port in the early morning game.
The Indians trailed through out the ball game and
tied the game at 4-4 in the sixth inning.
After stopping the West Port team in the top of the
seventh inning the Indians went to work with their bats.
After the first two Indians hit their way on base, the
third batter was walked to set up the force out at home
plate. Starting and winning pitcher Jermey Hayes, hit a
sharp liner to the short stop, who bobbled the ball before
throwing to home plate too late as the winning run
crossed the plate for the Indians.
The Indians ended with a 2-1 record in their group,
losing only to eventual champion Dunnellon.
Game 2: The Dunnellon turned its bats into hitting
sticks as they faced Wildwood.
The Tigers hammered out a 16-4 win in five innings
to advance to the Thursday night Championship game
with a 3-0 tournament record.
Game 3: PK Yonge scored early and often to down
Mount Dora Bible 13-2.
Game 4: The Williston Red Devils scored five runs in
the first inning, gave up 10 runs over the next five innings
and came back and scored another 5 runs in the bottom
of the sixth to tie the game at 10-10 against the Lake
Weir Hurricanes. The Red Devils scored the winning run
in the bottom of the seventh for the 11-10 win putting
them in the championship game against Dunnellon. The
Red Devils also held their senior night before the game
started as they honored their senior baseball players,
Danny Etheridge, Trip Fugate, Carl Gilley, Brent
Stegall, and Carl "CJ" James before the game.
Senior Trip Fugate pitched six even innings for the
Red Devils before senior Danny Etheridge came in to set
the' Hurricanes down in order in the top of the seventh

Graham led off the bottom of the second inning with a blast over everyone's head to
the center field fence. Graham was held at second with a double but was left stranded
on second base after two complete innings.
The Buccaneers responded with two runs in the third inning for a 9-0 lead, and put
the game away in the top of the fifth inning with three more runs.
The Eagles were unable to score in the bottom of the fifth and struggled throughout
the game, using four different pitchers in an attempt to slow the Buccaneers hitting
attack.
The Eagles completed a three game week of rained out district games which was
highlighted by the nine inning pitching performance by Kelby Barber on Thursday
night in a come-from-behind-win against Mayo.

Drummond, from Page 1


The best fishermen


I've ever known

I will be 84 years old
in less than a month, and
I have fished for about 71
of those years. Somewhere
along the line, it stuck in
.my blood I enjoyed it. 7
Throughout those
years, I have met some
amazing fishermen. .
The best fisherman I
ever knew was my father.
He kept food on F
the table when A Fish Sandwich
times where with Barney Busby
tough, and you can't
get any better than that. He never had a rod and
reel. But his long fishing pole was lethal. He
caught a lot of red bellies and other brim, and
catfish. He always fished with worms. He dug
his worms out of the ground. He had a very long
fishing pole about 16 feet. If not, he would
not fish with it. The line was just as long. When
he went fishing, he had a plenty of worms, and
brought back a lot of fish. He knew where to fish
and when to fish.
When dad brought them back, mamma fried
them up, and it was a wonderful thing.
Later on, I was able to meet some of other
incredible fisherman of the Suwannee River
Valley.
Joe Bason out of Suwannee was an incredible
man. He knew where they were. He knew where
to go and when to go, and we caught a lot of
fish together. He was a retired fireman out of
Gainesville, I think, until he retired and started
fishing. He took parties out from everywhere. He
was a legend, a trout and red legend. He was 'good.
Claude Henderson out of Suwannee was a
wonderful man. As far as I know he is still living
down there. He was a guide for a while. More
importantly, he was a mighty fine fella too. He was
a good man. We went fishing in Moccasin Creek,
outside of Suwannee, and he was amazed at the
size of the trout we brought out of there. We went
in there and started bringing them out, and he was
surprised at the size and number of them.
Dempsey Harper retired out of South Georgia.
He was good as well. He was very good. He
would bring in fish every time. He had been in the
military, and had got wounded in his left arm. He
was a dam good fisherman. He was a good guide,
and knew where to go. His party brought in fish
wherever they went.
That was been a fine group of men. When I
got acquainted with all the guides in Suwannee,
they were some of the best friends I ever had.
Being a fisherman does not make them a better
quality of man, but those I have known were a fine
group of people, among the top element of people
anywhere.


"We want you to
know our appreciation for
what has been more than
a good deed in this year;
more even than a special
contribution of time, talent,
and resources over several
seasons," Quincey said. "In
fact, the recognition this
chamber bestows on you
today is for more than that
generally given to those
named Citizen of the Year.
Tonight, we recognize and
celebrate as a "Lifetime
Achievement Award" your
valued contributions to the
Greater Chiefland Area
Chamber of Commerce."
Luther Drummond
marveled at how his son, Kay and Luthi
Gray Drummond, as well as
the chamber itself, had managed to keep the secret about
the Citizen of the Year Award. The award caught them
by surprise.
Drummond, founder and president of Drummond
Community Bank, said he and Kay have had the privilege
of being part of many wonderful things in the community,
and many gave them a personal rush of satisfaction. But
nothing compared to this recognition.
"To be honest, being recognized by family, friends
and community is the ultimate rush," he said.
Kay Drummond said she wanted the chamber to
know how much the honor meant to them.
"But I also want each of you to know each of you
shares a piece of this plaque," she said. "It's people like
you that make this town a place we love to live in."
Quincey described the Drummonds as "an
extraordinary couple." He said they have made the
community a better place to live, not just for themselves,
but for everyone.
Their civic work began long ago. By 1971, Luther
Drummond was an enterprising civic leader as president
of the Chiefland-Lions Club. Under his leadership, the
Lions Club achieved extraordinary success.
"The Chiefland Lions rose to heights of achievement
and recognition rarely realized by a small community
organization," Quincey said. "As one of the members at
that time said, 'Luther Drummond really put Chiefland
on the map that year, when it came to community service.
As another put it, "We saw every goal accomplished
and had exceeded the very high standards and goals we
thought impossible."
Drummond, then the youngest bank director in the
state, soon became the youngest bank president in the
state. Drummond's civic work meant more money raised
for the Florida Foundation for The Blind than had ever
been achieved previously, and more Chiefland High
School students tested and supported in the treatment of
eye disease, and it meant new Chiefland High School
band uniforms were purchased.
At the same time, Drummond continued to serve in
the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve.
Drummond was treasurer of the annual quarter
horse show at the time, chairman of Chiefland's annual
watermelon festival, chairman of the county's Rural Area

Development Committee,
and was a party to other
community services and
benefits.
In the early 1970's, he
served on the Chiefland
City Council. He remains
an active member of the
Greater Chiefland Area
Chamber of Commerce.
Turning to Kay
Drummond's contributions,
he said while her husband
set the standard in civic
leadership, "so has Kay
by her gracious hospitality
and organizational abilities
in the cause of charitable
benefits."
Kay Drummond, a
3r Drummond former elementary school
teacher, has hosted numerous
events throughout the years in service to the community.
The Fall at the Farm" benefit held by the Drummonds
this year amazed Hospice fundraisers with its charm and
grace and with its astonishing success, raising $30,000
and a building commitment of $100,000.
"Some of you may not know something close to my
heart, that. Kay is a former Cattlemen's Sweetheart,"
Quincey added. "In the early 60's she traveled the state
promoting the cattle industry."
When the Suwannee River Players almost folded
because of financial problems and the many repairs
needed for the theater, including a new roof, the
Drummonds came through, paying for the new roof
and making a strong financial commitment each year
thereafter, Quincey said. They felt this was one of the
few opportunities to expose the arts to our young people.
More recently, they sponsored "Grease," which sold out
every performance and was held over.
For more than 10 years, Kay graciously opened her
home, which had been featured in Architectural Digest
and Country Living, for the Ladies Tea, "which exposed
our community to the cultural elegance that would not
have been known without Kay's benevolence," Quincey
said.
When hopes were raised for a hospital in the
community, the Drummonds were in the vanguard of
thgsg uppottg, tlg 14pgpital, J ju J5_ q p in
their support for development of a Chiefland area branch
campus of Central Florida Community College, Quincey
said.
"Where ever there is cause to give Chiefland folk
opportunity and assistance in achieving our best, the
Drummonds have given their best," he said.
Even the d6cor of Drummond Community Bank is
a symbol of the community's history and pride, he said.
Inscribed on the wall of the bank is the statement, "Take
a chance on people. Someone took a chance on me."
"That Luther and Kay have instilled in their son Gray
these same standards, qualities and attributes assures that
the Drummond legacy to this community will continue,"
Quincey said. "With all their respect for, and interest in
the history traditions of this community, through Gray
and his wife Marjorie, Luther and Kay have proudly
attended to the future as well.

New in DVD

Reilly 'Walks Hard'

as Dewey Cox

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Some high quality movies tend to fly under the
radar with little or no attention, while other, less
worthy films seem to grab headline after headline
on their way to
big box office New In DVD
receipts.
Similarly, some actors quietly carve out a career
of fine performances, while others constantly find
themselves on the covers of entertainment magazines
everywhere.
Count John Reilly among those thespians you
might not have heard of, but who has turned out a
list of brilliant performances. One of his latest, "Walk
Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" showcases Reilly's
amazing versatility.
"Walk Hard" is the story of a fictional musician, a
man driven to succeed by the nagging memory of his
talented brother's death, and by the constant badgering
of a hardnosed father. The movie spoofs better known
films about musicians, namely "Walk the Line" (about
Johnny Cash) and "Ray" (about Ray Charles).
Like any spoof, "Walk Hard" has more than its
share of stupid moments. There are scenes in this film
that will make you shake your head and wonder why
they wasted their time. But be patient with this one a
number of noteworthy performances make it a movie
that perhaps deserves your attention.
First and foremost, of course, is Reilly, whose
displays more than just a hint of considerable musical
talent. He plays the guitar throughout, and provides
vocals that are noteworthy as well. This is a side of the
actor rarely scene in his previous work, in movies such
as "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,"
"Gangs of New York," "Storm of the Century," and
"Boogie Nights."
Jenna Fischer, of TV's "The Office," plays'
Reilly's love interest in the film, and delivers a fine
performance as well, as does Tim Meadows, formerly
of Saturday Night Live fame, who plays the drummer
in Reilly's fictional band.
r; Kristen'Wiig; amember of:the.current SNL.orew,
almost steals the show in "Walk Hard," playing
Reilly's first wife. The part of a neglected wife in a
spoof seems right down her alley, and she delivers
with a number of funny one-liners throughout. The'
whole cast, in fact, benefits from a well-written script
that includes a number of witty tunes.
But beware: "Walk Hard" also comes complete
with a number of scenes that are highly unsuitable
for younger audiences. There is rampant illicit drug
use throughout, and plenty of raucous language to go
with it. If that were not enough. "Walk Hard" features
scenes with full frontal nudity, once a taboo in the
movie industry, but seemingly everywhere you look
these days. "Walk Hard" earns its "R" rating handily.
Still, once you put the kids and the senior
citizens to be, this is a movie that will bring plenty of
unexpected smiles to your face. Just keep in mind that
it is a spoof, and you should enjoy it thoroughly.
"Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" 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.

Clerk faces felony charge over lottery tickets


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The manager of the Mid Town Jiffy Store in Chiefland
has been arrested for stealing lottery scratch off tickets
and taking more than $50,000 in winnings, city police
say.
Darla Kay Gay, 40, of Bell, was arrested on one
count of grand theft after admitting she had stolen lottery
scratch off tickets since last November and used the cash
from winning tickets to buy clothing and vacation trips.
Det. Sgt. Chris Barwick said Florida Lottery officials
are still tracking down all the stolen tickets. He said the
$50,863 taken by Gay may not be all that was stolen. The
number includes only winning tickets cashed in since
January. It didn't include November and December.
Lottery scratch-off tickets arrive in rolls, according
to Barwick. The tickets remain inactive until removed
from storage. The clerk activates them with a special


Springhouse


Quilters

Springhouse quilters enjoyed the March workshop
with Marilyn Hazelton with a Disappearing Nine-
Patch quilt block. Approximately 12 of the members
took advantage of the opportunity to Slice-Dice and
rejoin nine-patch blocks so that the nine-patch units
disappeared. Marilyn is one of our winter friends that
visits, the area during cold weather in the north. She is
a wonderful quilter and teacher.
Forty-one members of Springhouse attended the
April monthly business meeting. During the meeting,
there were several large completed quilts on display.
One of the quilts shown was by Mandy Ramaswami.
Mandy comes from the Ocala area to attend the
meetings. The quilt she displayed was one completed
in a mystery workshop and is very colorful and bright.
The community quilts for donation are being made
for use by Another Way. One of these projects will be
quillows. Frances Williams is the quillow maker in


Log Cabin Quilters met April 10 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was show a quilt top day
and it happened all week. Three tops were brought
in and what beauties we saw. We take many pictures
of everything and what treasures they will be when
quilted. Two quilters came in Wednesday and showed
their projects: one from Tampa, one from Thomasville,
Ga. It makes us happy to see so much hand-quilting
going on.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday. Greg fixed
our windmill blades. We had a bad wind that blew the
blades off, but Greg knew how to fix it and now we


card that comes with the roll. The card is placed in the
lottery machine to activate the roll.
Barwick said Gay removed rolls of scratch-off tickets
from storage, activated them at the store, and transported
the tickets home to be scratched off. She cashed in the
winners rather than selling them at the store.
"What she was doing was going to the Gainesville
area and cashing them in at Publix," Barwick said.
Gay wasn't using the money to pay bills, Barwick
said. For the most part, she was buying clothing for herself
and taking trips to Bush Gardens and Sea World.
Lottery investigators are cooperating with Chiefland
police. Whenever their theft investigation is complete
they will notify Barwick if Gay must make additional
restitution to Hudson Foods and the state.
The theft was discovered when Hudson Foods
officials discovered they had been billed by the state
for scratch off tickets that were never sold at the store.
Hudson Foods reported the theft.

can tell which way the wind blows. Mr. Norman, who
lives up near Trenton, built it for us before he passed
away and we want to keep it in his memory. He also built
our lighthouse inside, a small museum we keep on the
mantle and so much more. He will never be forgotten.
We had fresh yellow squash, zucchini and onions
brought up from Plant City and they were so good with
rice, macaroni salad, greens, biscuits, salmon salad,
chocolate cake, cookies and more.
