Most people know someone who is
suffering from cancer, and just as many
people know someone who has survived
the disease.
That's bad news and the good news
about the story of cancer.
The 7th Annual Williston Relay for
Life last weekend was a continuing effort to
raise funds for the fight against the dreaded
disease.
By Friday, $24,000 had been raised at
the relay by teams of community volunteers
and through sponsorships. Two other fund-
raisers are scheduled in May to reach the
$38,000 goal.
Marion Cason, who was co-chair with
Nan Mack, works at Perkins State Bank
and knows of several employees who have
had breast cancer. All are survivors.
She acknowledged the fight against
cancer seems difficult at times.
"Sometimes you think you're making
strikes and you turn around and this one's
got it and that one's got it," Cason said.
"But you can't give up."
Money raised at the relay is used
for research, education and program
services for cancer patients, according to


Heather Hayes, American Cancer Society
community representative.
Hayes nine paid teams participated in
this year's Williston relay, and four teams
raised more than $2,500.
The biggest sponsor was Tarmac LLC,
which contributed $1,500.
Among the services provided by the
American Cancer Society are:
Transportation to Treatment.
Volunteer drivers use their own cars to
drive patients' treatment appointments and
back home again.
"TLC" magalog, the American
Cancer Society's catalogue for women. It
offers helpful articles and a line of products
made for women fighting cancer. Products
include wigs, hair pieces, breast formnns, bras,
hats, turbans, swimwear, and accessories.
Hope Lodge. Sometimes it costs
a lot of money to stay far from home for
cancer treatment. Hope Lodges offer free,
overnight housing for out-of-town cancer
patients while they are being treated for
cancer. To find a Hope Lodge call 1-800-
227-2345.'
Breast Cancer Support Reach to
Recovery. Reach to Recovery volunteers are
breast cancer survivors themselves. They

Few people appreciate the importance oftheAmerican
Cancer Society's Relay for Life fundraisers more than
Michelle Standridge.
The 33-year-old Williston mother survived breast
cancer one time, but the disease is back again. She began
chemotherapy treatments Monday.
Standridge, guest speaker for the American Cancer
Society's Survivors' Dinner at the Relay for Life in
Williston Friday, said she knows the importance of raising
money for a cure.When she begins chemotherapy, her
doctors will give her a new drug, Avastin, in combination
with the chemo. Avastin has been used for colon cancer,
but will be tried in her case. She said Avastin surrounds
the cancer and chokes off the blood, killing it. The idea
appeals to her. It gives her hope.
"You just have to keep the faith," she said. "There's
always something new coming out. If this doesn't work,
try something else."
Standridge said she and her husband, Craig, her

Agricultural education has long been
a staple of Chiefland schools, and Heather
Rucker would like to keep it that way.
The Chiefland Middle School
agricultural instructor and middle school
FFA advisor is encouraging residents to
buy a special license plate for agricultural
education. The agricultural Education/ FFA
Tag can be purchased at the tax collector's
office in Chiefland or Bronson.
Rucker said the additional $27 for the
plate will go to the Florida FFA and state
FFA Foundation, which in turn provides
leadership conferences and funding


for awards to students and
Heather Rucker says the time to buy an agricultural tag education teachers.
is now.


County examines Library Board


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

With interest in its existence fading,
the Library Advisory Board was nearly
abolished Tuesday by the Levy County
Commission.
But the board decided to hold off until
it has more information.
The question of whether the LAB
should continue to exist was raised when
commissioners were asked to appoint
Michelle Jones to fill one of the vacant
positions.
Commissioners learned that Dave


Kendall is the remaining active member
of the LAB. Library Director Bonnie
Tollesson said there is little interest among
residents in serving on the LAB.
"They've had one good idea in two
years," Tollesson said.
The LAB was formed when Levy
County split from Marion County's library
system. In the absence of a library director,
LAB's purpose was to communicate with
commissioners on library issues and
guide the library system, according to
Janine Turner, administrative assistant to

See Library, Page 5


agricultural


The second purpose of the plate is to
show state lawmakers the importance of
continuing to fund agriculture education.
That's why vocational .education students
and teachers throughout the state are
promoting the sale of the tags.
Vocational education programs are
being removed from schools due to lack of
funding, according to a state brochure about
the special tag published by Commissioner
of Agriculture Charles 'Bronson.' Rucker
said the woodworking program was already
gone by the time she came to Chiefland.
"If you don't stand up for it, it's easy to
get rid of it," Rucker said.
FFA members are being encouraged
to sell one plate for each member of the
chapter. That means convincing a parent or

Williston fires City Manager

Williston City Council fired City Manager
James Coleman Tuesday night without giving a
formal reason. They appointed finance director
Mark Schieffer as the interim city manager. Council
president Debra Jones will meet with Schieffer on
what additional compensation he will receive as city
manager.
A special meeting will be held April 29 to address
how they will find a permanent replacement for city
manager. Schieffer has indicated he does not want
the job on a permanent basis.
More information will be in next week's edition
of the Levy County Journal.

Lock them up


By Rick Burnham
Editor


There was a time when crime was not tolerated
in this country, when criminals were treated as such
and victims' rights and the welfare of society was a,
top priority.
But somewhere along the line most likely -in
the dark era that was the '60s we began to see
things in a different light. The rights and welfare
of the criminal was suddenly paramount, and
thus administered to promptly and completely.
Rehabilitation took precedence over incarceration.
All of which is good in a perfect world.
But ours is not a perfect world.
Ours is a world populated by men and women
who thrive on lawlessness. Some are white, some
are black, others are Hispanic or Asian. It is a
brand of human being characterized only by their
complete lack of respect for society at large. They
are consistently in trouble moving effortlessly
from crime to crime to crime, without ever having
to suffer any real or lasting consequences. Court
systems are merely revolving doors, turning them
back on the street as soon as possible, with stern
warnings about not coming back.
But they do. Over and over and over.
Take Jonathan Tave, for example. Mr. Tave is an
inmate in the Duval County Jail, currently awaiting
trial for murder.
According to a recent Florida Times Union story,
Tave has put together an extensive felony arrest
record over the years, with charges ranging from
"drugs and gun violations to grand theft auto and
arson." His trial for murder involves the shooting
death of another man during a 2005 hijacking
attempt.
Despite that, jail officials saw no reason that
Tave should not be left alone with a 29-year-old

GED. Good Enough for me Diploma


Crime, from Page 2

female corrections officer in the facility's law library
last week. After all, she was there to help Mr. Tave
with research work to help him beat the murder rap.
So with not so much as a single other person
around to stop him, Tave raped the young woman
- not once but twice jail officials said. Broke her
cell phone, took her radio away, stopped her from
using pepper spray, and brutally raped her.
The young woman is now on leave, no doubt
beginning a long and extensive period of mental
anguish, one that will likely last the rest of her life.
Tave now faces a list of new charges, including
four counts of sexual battery, aggravated battery of
a law enforcement officer, kidnapping, two counts
of depriving an officer of a means of protection or
communication, possession of a concealed weapon
by a felon and two counts of evidence tampering.
Someone somewhere is no doubt contemplating
- probably doing it as you read this right now how
Tave's rights have been and are being violated.
Someone is no doubt scheduling him for extensive
rehabilitation, and doing what they can to ensure
he will receive the very best legal representation
available.
Try this instead: lock him up and throw away the
key. Put Mr. Tave in a cell and leave him there, for
the rest of his natural life, and do the same with other
thugs and criminals like him.
Society, and common sense, demand it.

So here's a little known secret
(although.I do try to tell anyone
who I think it will help), I have a
I 4 GED. Yes, that's right. I took my
GED exams back in 1997, after
finding myself pregnant and alone
at 16, a high school dropout, and
completely lacking any skill or
qualification to get a decent job. (It was a very scary
place to be in that I do NOT recommend to anyone for
a multitude of reasons.)
For a while I tried the teen parent program that
was held after hours at the high school I should have
continued attending. To be honest with you, I found
the workbook curriculum disengaging, the teachers
burned out, and the hallways depressing. Yes, the
hallways where I had been giggling with my peers
between classes, shuffling along glumly on exam days,
and racing through with my friends to find the exit
at the end of the week, had now become the saddest
reminder of the life I chose (or unwittingly created) for
myself. Each evening I carted my baby in her carrier
down these hallways where the smell of teen-spirit still
lingered and the floors were littered with fragments of
the daytime life I so longed for. Inevitably, like most
of the other teen moms there, I became a high school
dropout for the second time (not something I usually
admit out loud so it's good this is a written piece).
Let's face it; we all know a high school diploma is
better than a GED. A high school diploma actually tells
your potential employer (and yourself and everyone
else you interact with) that you finished something.
YOU stuck with it and made it all the way. It's a
seriously impressive thing. Maybe I appreciate it more
because I didn't finish. I dropped out twice. That's not
even impressive in a quitting contest.
So what about the GED? While I'm being so
honest, I should let you know that I was raised with
the silly notion that a GED wasn't good enough. It
had a reputation as substandard quality. GEDs are for
those who couldn't finish, right? Who wants to be
substandard? And so I actually considered not getting
one. I told myself that someday I'd go back to school
and get a real diploma. Yeah right we all know how
good intentions work out when life gets in the way.
Several job applications later, I knew I needed
to buck up, set aside my prejudices, and conquer my
fear. Yes, that's right, myfear. Tests can be frightening
things. What if I don't pass? What if I choke and I can't
do it? (Sound familiar?) Well, here's another secret:
you can retake the GED as many times as it takes and
just portions of it at a time, if you want. And when
that diploma comes in the mail, addressed to you, with
your name in big calligraphy across the center, there is
absolutely no mention of how many attempts you made
nor any word what-so-ever of your score. It's a diploma
- and it has your name on it. The experience of holding
your accomplishment is unbelievably incredible (one
that I definitely recommend to everyone).

And even better did you know there are free
classes to get you ready? Yes, really free! People
in Levy County have two options: Central Florida
Community College in Chiefland and Santa Fe
Community College in Archer both offer ongoing no-
cost GED preparation classes and both are excellent
colleges. I recommend calling each one to see which
program works better for you. And here's a thought
for some: just go take it. Call it a practice run. Then
you can see what it's like and what areas you need to
improve.
It took me years to realize how wrong I was about
the GED. It's an accomplishment that one should
be proud of and relish in completion. The GED
is a serious stepping stone to a better job and even
more importantly: additional education. My parents'
generation didn't need college, but things have changed
- even for them. In today's society college degrees are
paving the future for us all. And for those who were
never really meant for the classroom setting, the GED
can at last provide the legitimacy for employment and
self confidence that you've been looking for.
So maybe I did take the long way around (to quote
the Dixie Chicks), but things are working out just fine.
I'm part of a community for which I care deeply, and
where I'm raising my seven children (yes really, seven)
to be involved and make a difference in the lives of
others. As parents, one of the biggest goals my husband
and I have is to make sure each of our children graduate
high school on time and make it to college. So far two
have been successful, and the one graduating next year
will be more than halfway to her associate's degree
thanks to the dual-enrollment program.
I've read studies, articles, and books that talk
about how a mother's level of education is one of the
most reliable indicators of her child's success both
educationally and economically. It makes sense. My
children value education because I do. It is vital that
kids see their parents achieve and succeed. At an
awards ceremony on Monday I was recognized for
my student performance in photography at Santa Fe
Community College. And next week my children will
watch me walk in the procession line to receive my
Associate of Arts degree in Journalism. I finally did it.
And it all started with my GED.
Whether you are 16 or 60 it is never too late to
earn your diploma. The personal satisfaction alone is
enough, but the opportunities it will create are endless.
Look at me I'm 28 years old, I have a good job with
the Universityof Florida that sends me allover the state
to help people learn how to make our roads safer, and
I even have a couple of real jobs, too. Photographer,
Journalist you know, the ones with official occupation
titles. Not so bad.
Rarely am I so self-revealing. Yet I share my story
in hopes of lending encouragement and motivation.
By no means do I advocate leaving high school early.
Sometimes life just gets in the way. This message will
not apply to all, but chances are you know someone
who can relate.
For more on preparing for the GED, see a related
story on Page 8.

(Gene) Thimlar of Auburn, Ind., and Barbara Bryant of Garrett, Ind. In his later
years he met his sister, Caroline (Chuck) Beason, of Titusville, who became a
very special person in his life. Mr. Allen is also survived by eight grandchildren,
seven step-grandchildren and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews
and friends. He also leaves behind his "family" from the New Beginnings Church
who brought him so much joy with their fellowship.
Mr. Allen was always helping someone and was a happy, joyful person to be
around. Laughter was his greatest gift to others. His motto was to help as many as
you can, for as long as you can. He will be missed by many.
Funeral services were Saturday at the Rick Gooding Funeral Home Chapel.
Internment followed at the Cross City Cemetery. Arrangements were under the
care of Rick Gooding Funeral Home, Cross City.

Levy County Journal AROUND LEVY COUNTY


Library, from Page 1

Tollesson.
But the county has a library director now and it also
has a strong volunteer base and strong Friends of the
Library groups in Chiefland, Yankeetown, Cedar Key,
Bronson and Williston. Those volunteers are strong
advocates and active fund-raisers for the libraries, Turner
said.
As the volunteer base grew stronger and as the
Friends grew stronger, there seemed to be less interest in
LAB. Many recent LAB meetings were cancelled.
E In other business, Citrus County's clerk of circuit
court was questioned Tuesday by resident Renata Cannon
about why minutes of county commission board meetings
aren't being published on time. He did not respond. (I
deleted this last sentence).
Clerk Danny Shipp is responsible for recording the
meetings and providing the minutes to commissioners,
but Cannon said Shipp sometimes publishes the meeting-
minutes four months late. The minutes are a public
record.
"Though it's Mr. Shipp's responsibility, it's affecting
you as well," Cannon said, addressing the board.
Shipp declined to respond in the meeting, but he
asked the clerk h has assigned to write the minutes to
contact the Journal.
Deputy Clerk Teresa Gulledge, who produces the
written minutes, said her full-time job is in finance, but
she has been asked to do the minutes because she has the
background. She said the clerk's office has fallen behind,
but will catch up.
"We were in the process of getting some assistance to
get caught up," she said.
In the meantime, she said residents can listen to the
audio version of county commission meetings on the
clerk's website. The last audio posted was for February.
Shipp did supply many of the recent minutes of
county meetings. Commissioners approved the minutes
of their Dec. 18 meeting, a special meeting on Dec. 18, a
public hearing on Jan. 8,, a regular commission meeting
on Jan. 22 and a fire workshop on March 25.

Area colleges offer free GED preparation


By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Editor ~ note: As graduation 2008 approaches,
the Journal will explore academic/career options and
obstacles in a series of articles on the status of education
in Levy County.
If you live in Florida and didn't graduate from
high school, you are not alone: chances are two out of
five people you went to school with didn't graduate
either. Although making incremental progress, Florida
consistently has a graduation rate near the bottom in the
nation.,
To make matters worse locally, the Levy' County
school district was among the lowest in the state last
year, ranking 58 out of Florida's 67 counties, according
to the Florida Department of Education.
The General Education Development program is an
option for people who want to earn their diploma. The
GED is a national test that measures academic abilities
against traditional high school graduates. It evaluates
performance in reading, writing, social studies, science
and math. An average score of 56 percent in these five


areas is needed to pass. The lowest passing score in any
given area is 51 percent.
The cost is $50 for the entire exam. Retakes are $10-
12 for any subsection of the test. Students can retake
any section as many times as needed to pass. Successful
students then receive a state of Florida high school
diploma.
Free preparation classes are available both daytime
and evening at the Central Florida Community College
Levy Center in Chiefland and the Davis Center of
Santa Fe Community College in Archer. The state of
Florida pays for all books and instruction, regardless of
income.
"The beauty of the classes is that they are individually
adapted," said Ruth Henderson, Director, of the Davis
Center. Students can enroll at any time and work at their
own pace, she said.
"How long will I be taking the classes is the number
one question I get," said Henderson. "I tell them two
weeks to 20 years. It depends on how hard you work,
how, far behind you are when you start and whether
you're a fast or slow learner."
Students participating in the preparation classes range


in age from recent high school dropouts to grandparents,
according to Henderson.
-"And everybody in the program is totally motivated,"
she said.
Students take an initial assessment test so that
the teacher knows how to tailor instruction for each
individual. This makes the teaching process efficient,
said Henderson.
"(Our GED instructor Shellie Banfield) is very skilled
at teaching different levels at the same time," Henderson
said.
Participants take pride in their academic
achievement.
"Students come back and show their kids where their
certificate is hanging in the classroom," Henderson said.
One of her favorite experiences was when a successful
businessman enrolled in the GED preparation classes.
"He said, 'I just don't want my son to graduate before
I do.' He got his GED before his son's graduation and we
threw him a party," Henderson said. "The GED program
is my pride and joy."

School board discusses energy saving measures


Single refrigerators

are item of concern

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

"Given that it's Earth Day, it's probably fitting
that we're discussing energy conservation," Bronson
Elementary School Principal Cheryl Beauchamp told
School Board members Tuesday. Beauchamp spoke on
behalf of the district's Energy Committee tasked with
exploring efficient cost-saving opportunities in this time
of economic crisis.


Bracing for potential budget cuts of an additional
$750,000, the Board voted to implement the
recommendations of the Energy Committee. The
anticipated cuts, released in a draft Monday by the Florida
State Senate, are in addition to the already trimmed $1.3
million this year.
"That's quite a chunk of change," said Superintendent
Cliff Norris. "All of the measures we're talking are going
to be very critical."
Electricity conservation -strategies include posting
signs in classrooms to remind people to turn off lights,
computers, and other electronics when not in use. Timers
will be adjusted for exterior lighting. Standard thermostat
settings will be set to the most efficient temperatures for
facilities both in use and not. Where possible, blackouts


for interior lights will take effect at night, weekends
and holidays.
One of the biggest cost saving measures will
perhaps also be one of the biggest inconveniences.
Teachers and staff will be asked to limit the number
of refrigerators and microwaves, in use to common
areas where they can be shared.
"I counted 40 refrigerators, in my school,"
Beauchamp said. "Almost every class has one." BES
teachers will be asked to share with other classrooms
nearby. "On my campus, most of the grade levels are
located close to each other." She said that by limiting
it to one per grade, many personal-use refrigerators
can be eliminated.
Exceptions to the new rule include classrooms
containing teachers and students with medical
necessities such as low blood sugar as well as
classes with young children. "This is not a ban,"
Superintendent Norris clarified. "Let's just try to limit
them."
Each unplugged refrigerator will save the district
approximately $140 per 10-month school year,
according to Assistant Superintendent Jeff Davis. "I
called around and found that it's about $14 a month
per small refrigerator," he said.
Other energy saving practices will include limiting
employee travel to only what is absolutely required
by holding more meetings via conference call,
-maximizing full seating capacity on buses for extra
curricular activities, and adjusting fees for public-use
of facilities to reflect current economic conditions.
"Every dollar that we can save is' going to be
worthwhile as we provide services for students,"
Superintendent Norris said. "There is a consensus. So
far, everyone has been willing to do their part. The
climate is good for us to work together."

FORT WHITE It was
not supposed to end like this
for Chiefland, the top-seeded
team in this year's District 7 I
3A tournament. The Indians '
came into Tuesday's game
against PK Yonge with a
top-10 state ranking, along
with a supposed second-
round date with fellow
Levy County powerhouse
Williston.
But somebody forgot Chiefland's Clenton Wasson slides safel
to tell PK Yonge's Alex Yonge's Ryan Toombs waits on a throw fr
Mikkelson about those
plans, and the crafty righthander carved up the Indians lineup enroute
to a first-round upset.
Mikkelson struck out four and allowed only six hits enroute to a
complete game shutout as the Blue Wave topped Chiefland 2-0.
The performance thwarted an equally impressive outing by
Chiefland's Ory Pitts, who struck out seven, and gave up only eight hits.
But the Indians unraveled during a nightmare fifth inning, committing
a couple of costly and uncharacteristic errors. PK Yonge scored both
its runs in the inning, one on a sacrifice fly and the other-on a base hit
to centerfield by Ryan Toombs.
The Indians had plenty of chances to take this one, including a
golden opportunity in the fourth. Clenton Wasson lined a one-out hit
to right field, and advanced to second when Dan Galpin walked. The

Indians had two runners in

But Mikkelson settled
down, getting a ground ball
out and a fly ball to end the
inning.
Later, in the bottom
of the seventh, Chiefland
threatened to score again,
and this time Mikkelson was
very nearly his own enemy.

Cochran walked, the Chiefland team suddenly had life. But Toombs, at
third base for the Blue Wave, fielded a ground ball by Cory Hanchar,
stepped on third base, and fired to first to end the game.
Afterward, Chiefland Coach Kyle Parnell said'that Mikkelson was
the key to the game.
"You have to give their pitcher credit," Parnell said. "He kept our
batters off balance all game and their kids made plays behind him.
Hats off to him."
Parnell said it was a big disappointment to end the season in such
a manner, but challenged the younger players to build on the team's
success in 2009.
"It hurts," he said. "We had a great season, but it's time to take the
steps to get ready to be even better next year.".

The Class 2A boy's baseball districts were
hosted for the third year in a row at Oak Hall's
Roger Maris Field in Gainesville.
The Bronson Eagles faced a red hot Trenton
Tigers team and fell 10-0 in five innings to a Tiger
team that scored in every at bat.
The Eagles could manage just one base hit
that came late in the 10- run rule stoppage as
Virgil Greenlee collected the hit on a single hit
sharply up the middle to start the top of the fourth
inning for the Eagles.
The Tigers scored three runs in the bottom
of the first inning as leadoff batter Billy Owens
slammed a 3-2 pitch over the left field fence to
start the scoring spree for the Tigers.
The Tigers scored two runs in the second
inning as Andy Jones blasted a ball over the


scoreboard in right center field with one man
on second base.
The Tigers continued to score as they
added one run in the third and another run in
the fourth inning to take a 7-0 lead over the
Eagles.
The Tigers came up to bat in the bottom of
the fifth inning and the first two batters walked.
DJ Bowers drove in the two base runners and
was held at third on a ball hit down the line
past third that was booted on a diving attempt
at the catch by the Eagles left fielder. Bowers
scored from third base two pitches later on a
passed ball to end the game giving the Tigers
a 10-0 win.
The Eagles ended their season this year
with a 7-13 record.
The Eagles will return all their players next

The middle school players were first to
receive their certificates and trophies. The
junior varsity received their certificates and
trophies next, followed by the varsity.
This same Lady Varsity Eagles team
certainly turned their program around in

Lady Red Devils exit girls district playoffs


Story and photo by Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

FORT WHITE The Williston Lady
Red Devils were sent home from district
play by the Ft. White Lady Indians 3-2
April 16 in a game that went into extra
innings.
The Lady Red Devils had the
second-place bye in.the playoffs, taking
the field for the first time in 11 days.
Williston faced a fired up Lady Indian
team that split with the Lady Red Devils
in regular-season district play.
The Lady Indians scored one run in
their first at bat off of one base hit and a
throwing error by the Lady Red Devils.
The Lady Indians held this lead until the
sixth inning as the two pitchers, backed
by excellent defensive play by both
teams, controlled the game.
Laurrin Howard was on the mound
for the Lady Red Devils and Taylor
Douglass for the Lady Indians.
Howard allowed just one run and
two base hits through the first five
innings, and Douglass allowed just two
base hits.
In the top of the sixth inning the Lady
Indians took a 2-0 lead and Douglass
appeared to be getting stronger as the
game progressed, having struck out the
last two batters she faced in the fifth.
The Lady Red Devils came to
life in the bottom of the sixth inning.
Margaret Brown reached first base on


a bobbled ball hit to the infield. Heather
Porter followed with one of her two base
hits, putting runners on first and second
base. Dayna Hunn then scored Brown
from second and put Porter on third with
a double.
With two outs and runners on second
and third Howard hit a deep fly ball to right
field that was dropped scoring Porter to tie
the game at 2-2 after six complete.
Both teams had one base runner in the
seventh inning but could not score sending
the game into an extra inning.
In the top of the eighth inning with
a runner on second base, Lady Indian
Amber Harrell blasted a ball over the
center fielders head to the fence scoring
what proved to be the winning run for the
Lady Indians.
In the bottom of the eighth inning,
Porter started with a single to right center
field. Hunn hit a line shot to Harrell at
second base, who turned and threw to first,
forcing the runner for a double play. The
Lady Red Devils could not answer with a
score and the Lady Indians advanced to
the championship game with the 3-2 win.
Third year Lady Indians Head Coach
Frank Howell said his team's goal was to
take the game one inning at a time.
"I kept telling our players after each
inning, we won that inning," he said. "We
got beat in the sixth inning, but I told the
team starting the seventh inning,'we are
all even now and it's time to play for the
win.'"

PK Yonge tops Chiefland Lady Indians in girls playoffs


Story and photo by Rick Burnham

FORT WHITE It was a season of near misses for the Chiefland Lady Indians
softball team, with several games coming down to the late innings before swaying in
the other team's favor.
The season took one final wrong turn April 16, with the Lady Indians falling to
PK Yonge 4-0 in District 5 3A playoff action. The Blue Wave broke open a scoreless
tie with a single run in the fourth inning, and added three more in the sixth to end
Chiefland's season at 9-10.
PK Yonge speedster Brittany Hendrix scored the eventual game-winner in the
fourth after legging out a bunt single. After a walk to Tiara Luckey, Brittany Posey
lined a hit to centerfield, and the team from Gainesville had all the runs they would
need.
The loss spoiled a sparkling performance by Chiefland pitcher Brittany Davis, and
a solid defensive effort by the Lady Indians. Davis retired the first nine batters of the
game, four on strikeouts, and two on running catches by centerfielder Aimee Grieves.
Chiefland coach Wayne Weatherford credited Davis for a solid game, and mentioned
Grieves as one of five seniors playing their final game for the Lady Indians.
"Brittany pitched a great game," he said. "The opposing team had a hard time
making contact with her pitches. She kept them off balance the whole game."
Grieves, along with fellow seniors Cassie Labat, Hagen Lewis, Jerrica Grimsley

and Brooke Williams, will be sorely missed, Weatherford said.
"We are sorry to lose them," he said. "I wish the outcome could have been different
for them. I hate to see them leave. It is hard to lose a last.game like that."
The Lady Indians could do little with Posey, the Blue Wave starting pitcher. Posey
struck out nine Chiefland batters, and allowed a runner as far as second base only
twice, in the top of the second and in the top of the sixth.
Williams began the second with a single to right field, and advanced to second
one out later when Caitlyn Allen lined a hit to left centerfield. Posey settled down,
however, getting the final two outs on a strikeout, and a groundout..
Williams lined a two-out hit inmthesixth inning and advanced;td second when PK
Yonge right fielder Taylor White bobbled the ball. Posey struck iuttithe next batter.'
The Blue Wave then blew the game open with three runs on three hits in the
bottom of the sixth.
The narrow defeat was one of several during the year for Chiefland, leaving
Weatherford shaking his head at what might have been.
"We played that way for the past seven or eight games," he said. "The sixth or
seventh inning always kills us. Today's game could have gone either way."

Drinking water notification

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER
OtterCreekHas Levels of Disinfection Byproducts Above Drinking WaterStandards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an
emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should
do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.

We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we
received on February 12, 2008 show that our system exceeds the standards, or maximum
contaminant levels, (MCL), for Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs), which includes both
Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs), and Total Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). The standard for
TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter (pg/L) and the average of TTHMs over the last year
was 182.9 pg/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60pg/L, the average level of HAA5s over the
last year was 111.4 pg/L.
What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in.excess of the MCL over many years
may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may
have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years
may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative
sources of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you .would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: We are working with engineers from
FRWA (Florida Rural Water Association). At their recommendation we have started
adding sodium permanganate to remove organic carbons which cause TTHMs. We have
also increased our flushing schedule. We have increased testing to find the most effective
treatment level with sodium permanganate. We are attempting to tweak the treatment
program for maximum results.

We anticipate resolving the problem within this time frame: We expect to see a reduction
in DBPs in next testing and to ultimately come within the required standards within the
next few quarters.

'Juno' a quirky,


witty movie

By Rick Burnham
Editor

"Juno" is quirky. The movie is quirky, and
the title character of the movie is quirky too.
But they are also very witty so witty that the
film won an Academy Award for Best Writing
and that is what makes this movie a winner.
Ellen Page is "Juno," a teenager with a big
problem she's pregnant. But Juno is no typical
teenager, and her solution to the problem is
certainly not a typical response. In making her
decision, Juno experiences a rollercoaster of
emotions, made somewhat more complicated by
the diverse cast of characters surrounding her.
"Juno" has a lot more going for it
than writing. The casting, for example, is
impeccable, and that cast begins with Page.
The 21-year-old actress claimed an Oscar
nomination for her performance, and it was not
by accident. This is a teenager with uncommon
maturity and a firm grasp on life. She uses those
traits well in deciding the fate of her child a
decision that eventually takes an emotional toll.
Juno has support though. Her father, played
with a comedic edge by J.K. Simmons, supports
his daughter in whatever decision she makes.
So does her stepmom, played convincingly by
Allison Janney. The teenage father of the child
(Michael Cera) seems mostly confused, but
supportive as well.
Juno's eventual decision on what to do
with her child involves a rich couple (Jennifer
Garner and Jason Bateman) who have not been
able to have a child of their own. There are
plenty of twists and turns to be found in the
nine months before the baby is born, including a
final curveball in the closing moments.
Any film that deals with teenage pregnancy
is likely to include sexual content and language,
and "Juno" is no different, earning a PG-13
rating. But most of the material in question
seems tame in comparison to other films
coming out of Hollywood these days. Perhaps
you might want to put the smaller children to
bed early, but give the teenagers a break. If they
have not seen "Juno," they will be in for a treat
as will you.
"Juno" is available at movie rental locations
throughout the tri-county area.
Each week, New in D VD will review a film
that flew under the radar, one that did not get the
publicity of the major Hollywood releases, but
offers quality entertainment nonetheless.

Training up a child in this day


Back when I was a kid we didn't have cable T.V, we
had rabbit ears, and I was considered the remote control.
With enough tin foil we might pick up all three channels.
There were cartoons on Saturday, and Church broadcasts
on Sunday. At midnight the National Anthem
was played. Then they shut her down.
I'm thinking maybe those were the good
old days of television, though I suppose
it had its flaws back then too. Those "Hee
Haw" girls were awful risqu6, and Buck
Owens would always be singing, "Gloom,
despair, and agony on me." (Talk about a
song you don't want stuck in your head.)
Of course there were the soaps too. They
brought more than their share of unneeded
drama into America's households. And let's
not forget, Saturday morning
wrestling. But A n
I guess it was the wrestling,
(or "rastlin" as we called it in Mississippi), that Gi
put the first ding in my armor of innocence.
I was just four years old, sitting there all alone in front
of my grandmother's big console when the Saturday
morning wrestling came on. I'd never seen such. My jaw
slung open like a snaggle toothed fly trap.
I remember a good guy in a white hat, named Cowboy
Bill. He took to fighting this dark seedy character whose
name escapes me. Cowboy was doing real good until old
seedy started cheating and dug into his trunks for a chain.
The referee must have been easily distracted, because
he missed the whole thing. Seedy wrapped that chain
around his fist and socked poor ole' Cowboy right in the
kisser. A few minutes later, when Cowboy Bill got up off
the canvas, he looked straight into the T.V. camera and
spit out a handful of bloody Chiclets.
My breath escaped me. A wave of fear pounced on
my back. I ran into my Mimi's bedroom and hid under
the bed. I realize now it was fake, but that day I laid there
until I cried myself to sleep.
I was reminded of this the other day while I was at a
kid's birthday party. Three older little boys were herding
up together and whispering with such goggle-eyed
passion that I purposed to ease closer and get in on the big
secret.
"I snuck up behind this guy and put the gun against
his head and blew it clean off," the one was saying.
"There was blood spurting everywhere!" They all
laughed.


I woke up this morning!
Still in the land of the living!
The sun is shining, I am
surrounded by love. Yes
puppy love, is there any truer
love? I don't think there is.
I have a lot to do here at the
house, but no one to make me
do it! So, I'll go down and
visit A&A Restaurant and sit
in my chair at the Dollar Store
and visit with my friends.
Yeah, isn't it great to have
good friends, who love me
in spite of all my faults and

after her illness. Sue was back and it

ul


Now my eyes were goggled! I must be overhearing
some sort of awful confession. Another kid responded
with an equally gruesome tale. I wanted to run and hide
under a bed somewhere! Then it dawned on my lightning
fast mind, these young toughs were just
talking about their exploits on a video
game.
You may call me old fashioned, but I
say, "SHAME!" Shame on us as a society
for producing such violent garbage for our
children. Shame on us as parents for not
nurturing and protecting them from it. Do
we really need a cheap babysitter so badly
that we would allow their little hearts to
be conditioned to such brutality?
Paul exhorted us- Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true, whatsoever
yw ayl things are honest, whatsoever things
are just, whatsoever things are pure,
ty Sheffield whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report; if there be any
virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8 KJV Wouldn't that principle apply to our
kids?
I've heard the tortured arguments about how we have
to prepare our children for the "real" world. Well, I know
the Creator of the real world, and He says Train up a child
in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not
depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 KVJ
Our kids should be spending their days learning how
things should be, not how they shouldn't. Bank tellers
don't study hundreds of different bogus bills in an attempt
to keep up with what the counterfeiters are doing. They
study our own U.S. currency and strive to learn every
particular detail of the real deal. Then when someone
tries to pass off a fake they know immediately it's not to
be accepted. It's the same way with our children. They
should be offended by gratuitous violence, and all other
manner of evil. Are we teaching them to embrace it?
But anyway I don't feel bad about sheltering my
kids. Not for one moment. Iwant them to feel safe under
my protection. At least until I am confident they have
full faith in God's. Searing a child's conscience does
not prepare them to be a warrior for God. They may
eventually face their share of dark seedy characters, but
when that time comes, I want them to do just that; face
them. I don't want them to be one of them!

Miss Honmey Says...


failures? Oh, where would I
be without you all!
I have got so much to do
here at home, but no one to
make me do it! But, it will be
done by and by (I think). I
don't know if I'm just getting
old and tired or lazy! But,
by the grace of God I will
survive!
It's a beautiful day today,
the sun is shining, the birds


are singing, my little dogs
are sleeping and I am alive
and well. What more could
I ask? God is so good to me
and I do thank him so much
for his love and mercy!
Where would I be without
Jesus?
I will shut up, get up and
take this to the Journal, so
until next week be good, take
care and God Bless!

Springhouse quilters

Last Tuesday was a very busy day for Frances Williams. She was
the leader getting both the day group and night group of Springhouse
Quilters making "Quillows" to be used as the community service project
for this year. Each year, Springhouse selects an organization needing
assistance by providing them with a sewing-quilted items to be used
by their clients. This year, "Another Way" has been selected as the
recipient of our lap quilts and "quillows." A quillow is a twin bed size
quilt which can be folded and tucked into a pillow that is attached to the
quilt. Approximately 30 Springhouse members joined together to make
the "quillows." It was a fun day and each of the ladies finished at least
one "quillow."
The beginner classes have all finished for this session. The day and
night classes this year were full. There are now another new group of
eager quilters just waiting to get started on their next project.
The night group of working ladies made their first round-robin swap
during their meeting last week. There were nine members who signed
to participate in this' fun project. Each person participating places one
quilt block in a brown bag. The bags are numbered and then participants
select one bag to add a "round" for the month. The bag is due in the next
month at the regular business meeting and the bags are again swapped.
At the end of the swapping period, the block is returned to its owner for
final bordering, quilting and finishing.
The day group will make their first swap at the first meeting in
May.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Lois Scott, 463-

friend to buy a tag. In Rucker's case, that
would amount to 120 tags, one for each of
her FFA members at CMS.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson is offering to visit the FFA
chapter that sells the most plates. He will
act as a teacher for a day and Bronson's
professional chef will prepare a "Fresh from
Florida" feast for the chapter. The deadline
to sell one plate for each chapter member is
April 30.
Rucker said it's probably too late to sell
120 license plates before the deadline, but
still, anyone who buys a plate will send a
message to Tallahassee.
How to buy a tag.
Contact your local tax collector office.
Ask for the Agricultural Education/FFA
license plate.
Pay a one-time plate fee of $27 in
addition to the normal renewal fee. (fees are
based on vehicle size).
Fill out the plate verification form in
the tax collector's office. This will credit the
local FFA Chapter with the number of tags
being sold.

Bronson Elementary School students celebrate Earth Day

Story and photo by Kellie Parkin -y-


More than 20 students with special needs planted flowers
at Bronson Elementary Tuesday in celebration of Earth
Day. Some of them had never planted a flower before,
according to teacher Patti Griffith. "We're teaching students
about taking care of the earth," she said. Griffith, a 28-year
veteran educator, teaches a self-contained class ranging from
kindergarten to fifth grade for students in need of special care
ranging from mild to severe.
"Students see success as they watch things grow," said
teacher Sally da Silva. "Which will help them so that they
can say 'I can do something, I am good at something,' it
changes their outlook and gives them confidence," said da
Silva, who is in her 42nd year of teaching. Also spanning
grades K-5, her class focuses on children in need of
emotional and behavioral support.
Planting flowers in not an unusual occurrence for da
Silva's students. "This class does all the gardening around the
school trimming bushes and weeding every Friday." They
also pick up trash and help keep the campus looking nice. "It
teaches them to give back to the school and the community,"
she said. "They have a lot of skills and talents."
"This gives the students a chance to do productive things
and get out of their seats for a good reason," which in turn
correlates to less behavioral problems, da Silva said.

information through treatment and beyond.

people with cancer and those who love them understand what they are facing. Classes are free

Survivor, from Page 1
"angel" as she calls him, view her new role as that of an educator rather than cancer victim or
patient. It didn't take long to come to that conclusion.
When she received the first diagnosis in 2006, she wondered for a time why the disease
had hit her. She has two sons, Angus and Flynt, ages 8 and 4, and being saddled with this
disease didn't seem fair.
But Strandridge said she knew her thinking had to change.
She made the choice to keep a positive attitude and educate people about cancer. She is
especially interested in alerting women who may have the genetic makeup that makes them
prone to breast cancer.
Eight women in Standridge's family have been lost to breast cancer, and six have survived,
she said. When one of Standridge's aunts was going through treatments, she insisted on finding
out why the women of the family were so prone to this disease. The aunt discovered she was
positive for the BRCA 1 Gene. Many family members were tested and found to have the gene,
including Standridge.
Standridge has made it her mission raise awareness about the gene and the need for testing.
Women who have the gene can greatly decrease their chances of coming down with breast
cancer, Standridge said.
Keeping a positive attitude is also important, she said. The support of family and friends
can help maintain that attitude.
But even with good doctors, family and friends, having cancer isn't an easy path.
"To keep a positive attitude and to keep yourself focused is a battle," Standridge said. But
she added, "I feel very good about it.

Old A/C? You could be wasting up to $400 a year.


SAVE THE
WATTS GUY
TIPS AND HINTS FOR SAVING ENERGY


Dear STW Guy: I just bought my
first house, a really charming
older one. But I'm kind of
worried about the house's A/C
unit, which has been around
since disco was in. It works well,
but I'm nervous about wasting
energy and money in my new
home. So, what's your take on
older A/C units? -Hot and Cold
Homeowner
Dear Hot and Cold: First the
good news: You're a homeowner!
Congrats! Now, the not-so-good
news: Outdated A/C units are
often inefficient, and can be a


leading cause of higher energy
bills. By upgrading to a more ef-
ficient A/C system that includes
a heat pump, you'll not only cut
up to $400 off your yearly energy
bill, you could also qualify for a
rebate of up to $350 from Progress
Energy. As a new homeowner,
you'll definitely appreciate the
extra savings! To qualify for the
rebate, you must .first sign up
for a free Home Energy Check at
savethewatts.com or by calling
866.712.3409.
Dear STW Guy: I'm fanatical
about saving money on my


energy bill. I've made some
efficiency repairs around my
house that have helped bring
costs down, but I want to do
more. Any ideas on how to
shave even more off my power
bill? Penny Pincher
Dear Penny: Sounds like
you might be a good fit for
EnergyWise~" a free savings
program from Progress Energy.
Once you're enrolled, you'll
be eligible to receive monthly
credits on your energy bill that
could total more than $145
per year. Plus, you'll play a


big part in helping to manage
Florida's energy use. Just select
the devices you want enrolled,
and the time frame you want
to receive credits, and Progress
Energy will install a small
device in your home, at no cost
to you. This device, usually
located in the garage, can
cycle power off and on to your
electric water heater or central
heating or cooling system, if
needed during periods of peak


Progress Energy


community demand. Because
EnergyWise is designed with
your comfort in mind, it's
truly worry-free. The cycles
are infrequent and brief, and
limited to select time periods.
In fact, most participants say
they never even notice when
cycles begin or end. So if you're
looking for an easy way to save,
I say it's time to get EnergyWise.
To get started, just call 866.958.
