Madeleine Kelley was crowned queen of the 54th Annual Chiefland
Watermelon Festival Saturday, an event that drew a big crowd and
plenty of politicians.
The politicians added buying power to the watermelon auction and
plenty of additional units to the festival parade.
Kelley, 18, daughter of Michelle and John Kelley of'Cross City,
was sponsored by Diane Walker Saunders, Sandy Daringer and Tina
Lamb.
First runner-up and Miss Congeniality was Heather Perseo, 20,
daughter of Sandy Knight and Tom Perseo of Old Town. She was
sponsored by Chiefland Tractor Supply.
Second runner-up was Lauren Etheridge Slaughter, daughter of


Wendy and Joe Slaughter of Cedar Key. She was sponsored by the
Sawgrass Gallery.
Politicians and would-be politicians were everywhere at the festival.
Under a scorching sun, they shook hands, bought watermelons, and
promised to make things better for voters.
The festival was a success, according to Chiefland Watermelon
Festival Chairwoman Karen Tillis. She headed the festival for the
Chiefland Woman's Club. It was the first year for the club to go. solo with
the festival. Tillis thanked the major sponsors for making it happen.
"They really helped us follow through with our vision," she said.
She said volunteers like Cracker and Angela Johnson, who handled the
watermelon auction, enriched the festival.

Chiefland city commissioners voted Monday to accept an anonymous
donor's offer to place a stone monument at City Hall bearing the Ten
Commandments.
Commissioner Sammy Cason said someone had called him and
given him a phone number of the donor, who wished to give the city
a stone monument inscribed with the commandments. He called the
donor.
The commission approved placing the Ten Commandments on the
lawn next to the flag pole. ,
"I know there are a lot of devils out there who will jump in
and not be for this," Cason said. "But we need to abide by the Ten
Commandments."


Cason didn't identify the donor, but said it was the same person
who donated a stone monument bearing the Ten Commandments for
the courthouse in Dixie County.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy said placing the monument on the lawn near
the flagpole would mean no one has to read it and no one can trip over
it. .. .-
City Attorney Norm Fugate said the city commission won't have any
trouble finding a law firm that would defend any legal challenges free
of charge, although he said, tongue in cheek, "I do need the work."
. Fugate also asked commissioners if they would entertain the idea of
placing symbols from other religions on the lawn of City Hall Pomeroy
responded that the Ten Commandments' are of Jewish origin.

Three perish in Cedar Key airplane crash


Terry Witt
Staff Writer
What began Saturday as a late night scenic
airplane flight over Cedar Key ended in a fireball
and the deaths of the pilot and two passengers,
Cedar Key police said Monday.
Killed in the fiery crash of the Cessna 306
were pilot Frank Gonzalez, 48, Plant City; John
Borchard, 43, Dover, Fla.; and Julia Kelly, 49,
Solon, Iowa.
Borchard was found floating Sunday in
waters off Cedar Key. Gonzalez and Kelly were
still strapped into their seats when the Levy
County Sheriff's Office dive team located them
in 16-18 feet of murky water.
"From what the dive team said, the airplane
was pretty mangled," said Lt. Scott Tummond,
spokesman for the sheriff's office.


Cedar Key Interim Police Chief Virgil
Sandlin said the cause of the crash is
unknown. He said the Federal Aviation
Administration arranged for a private
contractor, Quality Aircraft, to remove the
wreckage from water southwest of North
Key on Monday. From what he understood,
the National Transportation Safety Board
would investigate.
Sandlin, who was appointed Tuesday as
interim chief, said the crash occurred at about
12:30 a.m. to 12:45 a.m. He said alcohol was
not involved. Sandlin said Gonzalez had 15
years experience as a pilot and was rated to
fly at night with instruments.only.
Gonzalez had flown into Cedar Key


Airport around dusk Saturday with five
passengers, including Borchard the owner
of the plane, and two young couples. The
young people were Nikki Hinton, 23, and
Shane Hinton, 25, Riverview, Fla., and Jacob
Rayburn, 23 and Melissa Rayburn, 22, of Plant
City.
When the party of six arrived at the airport,
Kelly and her sister, Amy Livingston, 46, were
watching the sunset. Gonzalez was unable to
arrange for a taxi to take his group into town.
The party of six approached the two sisters.
The sisters volunteered to take them into town,
according to Sandlin.

Chief Petty Officer Charlie F. Sails addresses the
crowd at the change of command ceremony Friday.


Yankeetown station gets new commander


By Rick Burnham
Editor

YANKEETOWN Chief Petty Officer Charlie
F. Salls took command of U.S. Coast Guard Station
Yankeetown during a mid-morning ceremony Friday at
the station.
Moments after outgoing officer in charge Senior
Chief Petty Officer Sean C. Benton was relieved of his
responsibilities, Salls was handed the reins of the 42-
person unit by Capt. Joseph A. Servidio, commanding
officer of the U.S. Coast Guard Sector in St. Petersburg.
Salls, a native of Lecherias, Venezuela, was joined
'at the ceremony by his wife Kelly and their two
daughters, Alana and Sienna. The 12-year-Coast Guard
veteran said he looks forward to the challenges ahead in
Yankeetown.
"This will provide me the opportunity to grow new
relationships, with the outstanding folks who make up
team Coast Guard, along with those who selflessly serve
this community," he said. "I am very proud to be here,
and 1 am absolutely positive it will be a very rewarding
experience."
Servidio echoed those comments, adding that the
station accomplishes a wide range of missions in support
of the Levy and Citrus County areas.
"Station Yankeetown forms strong partnerships with


other law enforcement agencies, and has reduced the
scourge of illegal drugs and intoxicated boaters. Our
people have found narcotics on 21 vessels and led the
sector in boating under the influence enforcement cases,
removing these threats from our coastal waters."
The captain added that the crew of Station
Yankeetown will be there to assist in whatever challenge
that lies ahead.
"You are assuming command of a well-trained,
highly-professional Coast Guard crew," he told Sails,
"They, and my staff and I are here to provide whatever
support you may need. I know that you will demonstrate
the highest professionalism, ethics, and dedication to
our ,core values of honor, respect and devotion to duty.
"We nurture a culture for this crew that emphasizes
professional and personal growth, initiative, innovation
and integrity, partnership and community involvement,
ensuring that Yankeetown continues to be a place where
folks want to come work."
U.S. Coast Guard Station Yankeetown'lists, as its
official missions search and rescue, law enforcement,
fisheries enforcement and Homeland Security. The unit
conducts an average of 500 law enforcement boardings
every year.
Its area of responsibility encompasses over 120 miles
of coastline and extends 30 miles offshore, totaling 3,600
square miles.


Commandments, from Page 1
The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, as interpreted by the U.S.
Supreme Court, requires government to not give preference of one religion
over another, but there has been disagreement on whether placing the Ten
Commandments on government property violates the amendment.
Pomeroy noted that the Ten Commandments are illustrated in the building
that houses the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., and he doesn't
believe placing the Ten Commandments on the lawn of City Hall will breach
the constitutional ban against giving preference to one religion over another.
"I don't see it," he said. If it is a violation, then we need to repeal the
murder law; because thou shall not kill is in the Constitution," he said. "The
Ten Commandments are built, into all our laws."
Pomeroy added, "I think with the decay of society, I'm not opposed to
putting up the commandments and saying, 'Hey, what's up, pay attention.'"
Cason said the country is turning back to the principles it was founded on,
and placing the Ten Commandments on the lawn of City Hall fits with that
trend.
"You can see it in national politics and local politics," Cason said. "We need
to be getting back to believing in the Almighty and asking for his direction in
watnwAd,-fP3oy poitizens and natQan. ..... .. .
City Manager Grady Hartzog was the first to endorse Cason's
suggestion to accept the donor's offer of a stone monhmthrt'beating the Ten"
Commandments.
"It's an excellent idea," Hartzog said. "We need more prayer."

Akins
Property Appraiser Francis Akins has announced
plans to seek re-election.
"I thank you for the honor and privilege of serving
as your Levy County Property Appraiser," Akins said.
"As your Property Appraiser, it is my continuing goal to
value properties fairly and equitably, and to administer
exemptions to those who qualify. This is of the utmost
importance to. you, me, our communities and our
county!"
Akins said it has been his pleasure to listen to citizens
and answer their questions and respond to their concerns
about the value of property, how it is assessed and to
explain to residents how the value was determined.
"In my experience as your property appraiser,
creating an assessment role is a team effort that requires
the skills of an experienced staff," he said. "My staff and
I are willing to help you in a friendly manner; the way
you should expect from your public office."
"All- of us work for you!" Akins added. "I ask for
you to vote for integrity and experience. I ask for your
vote and support as I strive within the law to improve the
quality of service you deserve."


Hastings


Barker
Osborne "Oz" Barker has announced his candidacy
for property appraiser as a Republican.
"My decision to run for Property Appraiser was. not
made quickly," Barker said. I have been building on
experiences that I would need to be an effective elected
official and waiting for a time when real change was
needed. That time is now."
"I am concerned about the issues of taxation,
government spending, property rights and unfair state
regulations that are affecting us all," he added.
Having worked in the Property Appraiser's office
from 1987 to 1995, Barker said he knows what is required
for an effectively run office. During that time he held the
positions of field appraiser, tangible personal property,
agricultural and timberland classification, data entry and
customer service. He attended several appraisal courses
through the International Association of Assessing
Officers and successfully completed all courses. He also
has experience with the Department of Revenue Audit
process.
"As your Property Appraiser, I will ensure the
following: a knowledgeable, courteous and professional
service for all citizens; improved internal relations in the
office and with other departments and a public servant
attitude," he said.

What does it take

to be a candidate

in Levy County?

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Becoming a candidate in Levy County can seem
complicated when confronted with the necessary
governmental forms. Besides these forms, however,
candidacy simply takes a desire to run for office and
the footwork of gathering signatures from a few
hundred people to place one's name on the ballot.
In addition to the forms, the process requires
candidates to do a little homework. The DSDE
*9 form shows the candidate's appointment of a
campaign treasurer. Essential reading of chapter
106 on finance laws helps the candidate to avoid
legal trouble, and the signed DSDE 84 form states
that the candidate understands the finance laws, or
in other words, did the assigned homework. Form
6 publicly discloses the candidate's income, assets,
liabilities and net worth.
After the qualifying period these forms are made
public. They can be viewed on the Levy County
Supervisor of Elections' website at www.votelevy.
com.
The next step is gathering signatures on
petitions.
Candidates must submit petitions containing 242
registered voters. The petitions mean that citizens
believe the person should have an opportunity to
run for office. Signing a petition does not obligate
the signer to vote for the candidate. Therefore
registered voters can sign petitions for multiple
candidates for the same office.
Each signature is examined against voter
registration information by the office of Supervisor
of Elections to determine if it meets the qualification
of coming from a legitimately registered citizen.
Signatures from people who are not registered or
who have changed their address or last name without
updating their voter information are thrown out.
Periodically, candidates can submit signed petitions
to determine where they are in the hunt for the 242
voters.
Candidates usually submit about 300 signatures
supporting their run for office to ensure that they
have enough registered voters. About 10 percent of
signatures are disqualified due to address and name
changes, according to Tammie Jones, Assistant
Supervisor of Elections in Levy County. Sometimes
people forget and sign twice. This is especially
common among prominent persons who are asked
by many candidates for their signature.
Because all voter registration is computerized,
it takes about one hour for an employee from the
office of the Supervisor of Elections to view each
signature and verify the voter information for 300
citizens who have signed the candidate's petitions.
Each signature submitted results in a fee of 10
cents. Thus, this part of the process costs about
$25-30.
Partisan candidates can skip the signatures
* entirely if they are willing to pay six percent of
their annual salary. For nonpartisan candidates it is
four percent if they opt out. But almost uniformly
candidates opt for the signature process, according
to Jones. Although more time consuming, the
signature process costs candidates much less
financially. It also helps voters become acquainted
with the candidates.
It is not too late for those wishing to seek office.
If a candidate forgoes the petition process, there is a
qualifying week June 16-20, during which one can
register. The filing fee is due June 20 by 11:59 a.m.
Primary elections take place Aug. 26.

Scarred but still standit

By Rick Burnham
Editor
T here was a time when he was as strong as a bull, and as fast as a deer.
These days, he struggles to make it to the mailbox, each step a painful
reminder of decades spent on his feet, working long, hard hours.
Barney Burnham, my dad, took them all in stride, and played the
cards he was dealt the best way he knew how.
He worked in south Georgia fields as a youngster, not knowing the dangers the
sun posed for those with fair hair and blue eyes. At 84, his face now bears the scars
of a half dozen operations for skin cancer.
He worked hard for 25 cents a day, happy for the opportunity to do so, never with
a sense of false entitlement or privilege. And when the call came for able-bodied
men to fight the war against Nazi Germany, he enlisted, even though he was not yet
old enough to do so.
At 1.7, he boarded a Navy ship bound for the Mediterranean Sea, not knowing
when or if he would return to family and friends, and to a blue-eyed Suwannee
County girl who had caught his eye.
By the time he did, he had not only fought the Germans, but had traveled to
Okinawa as well. There, a Japanese grenade sent hot metal through his left arm, and
the scar remains to this day.
Still, he returned in one piece, and was wearing his dress white uniform when
he walked up to my mother's home on State Road 252 in Wellborn. A proposal
followed, and'then a tiny ceremony in a courthouse in Statenville, Ga. And then
Barney and Marjorie welcomed a fair-haired, blue-eyed little girl.
Sharon, they said, looked just like her dad. So did Barney Junior, which is what I
am still called by many in Jasper.


- the story of my dad


That is where they settled us, he working as the town's best-known barber,
and, for a short time, mayor. He gained a reputation there as a man who would do
anything for anybody. (He spotted a young couple broken down on Interstate 75 in
Hamilton County when I was just a boy and drove 10 miles out of his way to make
sure they got the help they needed.)
Sharon eventually gave him grandkids two boys with fair hair and blue eyes,
and life was good for Barney Burnham.
But the most serious scars were still to come, ones that took a very long time to
heal scars that were inflicted by a despicable woman with a belly full of whiskey
and a steering wheel in her hands.
The accident that took my mother and youngest nephew, and that very nearly
killed my sister, left my father with more anguish than any human being should have
to experience in a lifetime. Suddenly the sense of humor and vivid imagination my
father was known for was nowhere to be found.
The fair hair began a slow turn to gray.
But my father'refused to let it get the best of him, and with his only son off to a
career in the Air. Force, he turned to fishing for solace. Slowly, steadily, he carved
out a reputation as one of the best anglers in North Florida maybe the whole state.
If anyone in Jasper wanted to go fishing, he would find time to take them.
Slowly, steadily, the boyish grin returned.
He would add more scars along the way colon cancer and clogged arteries were
the culprits. But he seemed to handle those with ease. I guess when you have hit a
brick wall, everything else will feel like a speed bump in comparison.
I typically feel lucky on Father's Day, knowing that all who know my dad truly
love him. I do too, and I am proud of him for taking it all in stride, and for playing
the cards he was dealt.

J used to cringe when I saw a teenager smoking
a cigarette. I would gaze at them with pity in

throat and lungs are real outcomes of smoking. Not...
every smoker gets these diseases, but plenty do.
But a day rarely passes when I don't see a teen

Williston to install cameras

at intersections across town

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Drivers running red traffic lights in Williston soon can expect to have their
photograph taken by a sophisticated traffic enforcement system mounted at
intersections.
After months of discussion, Williston City Council members voted 4-1 last week
to enter into an agreement with Trafficpax to have red light cameras installed at
intersections.
Police Chief Dan Davis said he will consult with Trafficpax officials on where to
install the red light cameras. He said he doesn't know which intersections will receive
the equipment.
Davis said the cameras will record traffic passing through intersections and send the
images to Trafficpax. Officials there will comb through the images to find violations.
The images showing the violations will be sent to Williston police. A sworn officer
will review the images and determine if a violation occurred.
Violators will be fined $100. Davis said the intent of the system is not to generate
revenue but rather to stop the dangerous practice of running traffic red lights. He said
some intersections are more dangerous than others. He cited U.S. 41 and State Road
121 as being the most dangerous. He said the high speeds that people reach when
violating the red light results in side crashes and badly injure drivers.
"Ideally people will stop for red lights," Davis said. "That's the whole idea."
The cameras are not installed on the traffic light itself. Trafficpax needs to find
private property it can use adjacent to the intersection. The wide angle cameras are
mounted in a way that provides images of the vehicle and its tag number. Trafficpax
will mail the violation to the vehicle's owner.
Trafficpax will bear the entire cost of the equipment and installation.
Davis said the city will start the system by giving warnings for the first two months.
After that, he said violations will be issued.
"The whole thing is an unknown," he said. "We don't know how many violations
will occur."

Williston nearer to new city hall
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Williston City Council members voted unanimously last week to begin the
process of purchasing the former Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
building for a new city hall.
The council has not disclosed the tentative purchase price agreed upon by
the city and church officials but Interim City Manager Mark Schiefer said he
wouldn't be surprised if the total cost of buying, renovating and furnishing the
building reached $1 million.
Council members gave City Attorney Norm Fugate and Schiefer authority to
draft an option to buy contract containing the proposed purchase price, but the
price won't be publicly disclosed at this point to protect the city from outside
bidders who could up the price if they knew what the city was offering.
The agreement to buy the building will come back for city council approval
and the public will be given 30 days notice to offer comments on the purchase.
The entire deal could be scuttled if council members get cold feet, but the board
appeared to be in agreement that buying the church building was the best option.
"I still feel, that for the money we're spending we can take this city a long
distance in the future," said Mayor Gerald Hethcoat.
Constructing a new building, they said, could cost millions of dollars more.
Councilman Cal Byrd voted for the motion to move forward, but said he wa8 still
worried about leaving the city with this much debt after he leaves office later this
year. Byrd is running for the county commission.
"In November, I'll be gone and I'll be leaving that bill for someone else,", he
said.
Byrd said he also remembered the times when city employees had to move
garbage cans under leaks in the ceiling of the existing city hall to prevent
flooding.
"I think this is the only option to get out of this building and move somewhere
else," he said.
In other business:
City Clerk Barbara Henson submitted a letter saying she would retire on
June 30th next year. She has served for more than 20 years with the city. The letter
provided no reason for wanting to leave the city.
Hethcoat gave the mayor's Student of the Month Award to students from
Joyce Bullock Elementary School, Williston Elementary School, Williston Middle
School and Williston High School.
Kindergartner Elmer "Blake" Stacey, son of Casey Stamper and Barbara
Stacey was nominated student of the month at Joyce Bullock by Gigi Beckham and
Gerri Otim. His teacher said Blake has made major improvements in his behavior
and 'choices this last half of the year. Principal Wendy Allison and Assistant
Principal Jaime Handlin are so proud of Blake's progress. He has a great support
system at home and at school. "What a fortunate little boy," she said.
Angela Denise Epps, fifth-grade daughter of Frank and Diane Epps, was
nominated by her teacher, K. Bruce Higgins, as student of the month at Williston
Elementary School. Her teacher said Angela is a "shining star" who adds much
to his class. Whenever she comes home from school, she sits right down to do
her homework before watching any television. Angela says she is even starting to
make her own comics with full page scenes. Angela also goes to the public library
and attends church and choir regularly. This does not surprise her teacher because
,sheis frpiedly witl yher classmates and always polite and respectful to adults.'
Kelsey Whitehurst, eiglith grade d auglei o-'f Kellee"l' aVf.- P 9 g1 "
Whitehurst II, was nominated by her teacher, Ernest Kordgien as student of
the month at Williston Middle School. Kordgien said the eighth-grade team at
Williston Middle School is proud to select Kelsey as their student of the month.
She is an outstanding, well-rounded student, a former eighth grade star student,
a Junior Beta member, and an FFA officer. She has maintained a 4.0 grade point
average for the year. She is also an active member of the First United Methodist
Church where she is actively involved in their youth group.
Jordan Rivera, 10th grade son of Karen and Hector Rivera, was nominated
by Principal Michael Delucas as student of the month at Williston High School.
Jordan is just an all around nice guy and wonderful student at Williston High
School, Delucas said. He maintains a 4.0 grade point average and is also musically
talented and very well thought of. He is the school's "Magic Man," meaning he is
a good magician and very entertaining.

Levy FCAT scores slightly below state

Students tested on math, reading, science


TALLAHASSEE More of Florida students are
performing at or above grade level (Achievement Level
3 and above) in reading and mathematics compared to
all test years since 2001, according to the 2008 Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) results released
today. Additionally, more students in grades 5, 8, and
11 are performing at or above grade level in science
compared with previous years.
Still, scores for Levy County students fell slightly
below statewide averages for nearly every single
category. Only fifth graders in Levy County bested their
fellow students across the state, and only in science.
Forty five percent of Levy fifth graders scored at or
above acceptable levels, while only 43 percent-did so
statewide.
Florida Governor Charlie Crist was encouraged with
this year's scores, and credited teachers and parents
across the Sunshine State for their hard work and
persistence.
"Florida's students are to be commended for their
hard work and steady progress in reading, math and
science," Governor Charlie Crist said. "We are grateful
to the teachers of our students, as well as the parents,
who reinforce each day the importance of continued
learning and strong skills."
"Academic achievement in Florida continues to rise
and these results are a clear indication of the high quality
of education our students are receiving," said Education
Commissioner Eric J. Smith. "I'm particularly pleased
with the results we are seeing in math and reading and
the focus our schools have maintained on these important
subjects. The hard work of our teachers and endless


learning capacity of our students.impresses me daily."
Overall, 60 percent of students in grades 3 through
10 are reading at or above grade level compared to,
58 percent in 2007. Sixty-six (66) percent of Florida'
students are .demonstrating mathematics skills at or
above grade level compared to 63 percent last year.
Highlights of this year's results for Levy County
students include:
Sixty-two percent of county fourth graders scored&
at or above acceptable levels in mathematics, compared,
to 71 percent.of fourth graders statewide.
Sixty-five percent of Levy fourth graders scored'
at or above acceptable levels in reading, compared to 70"

Crash, from Page 1


The eight people had dinner at Frog's Restaurant
and from there went to Fine's Raw Bar. Afterward they
drove back to the Cedar Key Airport. Upon arriving, one
of the young couples realized they had left a camera at
the raw bar. Livingston agreed to drive them back to the
business to retrieve the camera.
While they were gone, Kelly apparently told
Borchard and Gonzalez she had never seen Cedar Key
from the air at night and requested a scenic flight. They
agreed.
"Unfortunately, she did that, and that was the last
thing she ever saw," Sandlin said.
Tummond said the airplane was seen on radar at 800
feet and then at 500 feet shortly before the crash. He said


it appears the airplane was making a turn in preparation
to land when it hit the water.
A fisherman found the body of Borchard floating
in the water. He had suffered second and third degree
bums on his upper torso. The other two victims were
still strapped in their seats.
"The plane was on the bottom with the two victims.
It was cut in half," Tummond said.
Searchers had trouble finding the plane at first.
"What was really strange about this, there was no
debris field," Sandlin said,,,"There was no oil slick. You
usually get debris and oil floating on,te surface.,,
The Levy County Sheriff's Office asked the Citrus
County Sheriff's Office to bring its side-scan sonar


to the area to search for the wreckage. Citrus County
marine investigators located two suspect areas using the-
torpedo-shaped device. One of the areas they found was-
the crash site.
If the crash was caused by pilot error, the result wasi
the deaths of three people, Sandlin said. If a mechanical
failure caused the crash, he said the scenic flight may'
have saved the lives of the other young couples.
"If it had been a mechanical failure, it would have.
been six dead," Sandlin said. -
Members of the Florida Fish ., and Wildlife;
Conservation Commission and U.S. Coast Guard also
participated in search and recovery operations.

Key Lions Club members have committed to a
quarterly cleanup of a two-mile stretch leading
into Cedar Key. The community service project
is the inspiration of Montgomery, whose prior
work and coordination with the Florida State
Department of Transportation made the project
possible. The first pickup day will be scheduled

Sheriff's arrests

Man torches playground equipment


Williston Police seize

Japanese machine gun

Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston police recovered a World War II
era Japanese machine gun during a traffic stop
Tuesday that led to the arrest of two women on drug
charges.
Abby Ross, 44, Beverly Hills, and Traci Bower,
46 of Dunnellon, were initially charged possession
of crack cocaine and possession of prescription
drugs without a prescription.
The women were stopped for a routine speeding
violation in the 100 block of Northeast 11th Avenue
in Williston. Cpl. Kevin Sheppard spotted a crack
cocaine smoking pipe protruding from Bower's
brazier.
A search of the vehicle revealed an assortment
of prescriptions for a Williston man being treated
at the veteran's hospital in Gainesville, including
codeine and muscle relaxers with a value of $1,675.
The veterans said the women took the pills from a
garbage can, but the women said he gave them the
pills.
The rare Nambu machine gun found inthe vehicle
was allegedly owned by Bower's grandfather. The
history of the weapon is being researched. Criminal
charges for possession of the weapon without a
federal permit are pending.
Police Chief Dan Davis said he believes the
women planned to trade the weapon for crack
cocaine.
A fhlly automatic machine gun can be carried
only by\ someone with a federal firearms permit.
Davis said the gun was not functional because the
bolt was missing,
He said the gun's rate of fire was 500 rounds per
minute. The Nambu was last used in 194.
Davis ,said the federal Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco and Firearms has been asked to investigate.
If the agency decides the case is too small, it will be
passed to the state for investigation.


A 28-year-old Chiefland man was arrested June 7 on
a charge of arson after he burned a piece of playground
.equipment at the Clyatt House child care center at 3690
NW 120th Street, Chiefland.
Investigators said Gregory Heath Hingson, 11351 NW
1081t Terrace, was observed by officer Ken Hutson using
a blow torch to set the piece of playground equipment
on fire.
Hingson said the reason he burned the equipment
was because: of an alleged incident of sexual activity
involving his son and another child.
A 26-year-old Chiefland man was arrested June
1 on a charge of attempted murder after intentionally
running over a man with his pickup truck, investigators
said. The suspect, Robert Allen Bender II, argued with
the victim before climbing into his truck and running
over the victim as he tried to run away. Witnesses said'he
ran over the victim at least twice before spinning doniuts
around the victim as he lay on the ground badly injured.
Bond was set at $100,000.
Robert C. Rutlin, 49, 425 S.E. 4th Drive, Williston,
and Billy Ray Head, Jr., 22, 409 SE 5th Ave., Williston,
were arrested June 4 on charges of burglary and petit
theft after sheriff's deputies responded to a report of two
people stripping metal and steel off at home at 15731 NW
10~h St. Deputies later stopped Head and Rutlin in a sport
utility vehicle. They were pulling a trailer loaded with
aluminum sheets. They admitted removing aluminum
sheets from the NE 10t Street property on June 3 and
were planning to recycle the sheets for profit.
Ian Wayne Anderson, 4271 S.W. Purdue
Road, Cedar Key, was arrested June 4 on charges of
misdemeanor domestic battery and felony child abuse
after a domestic altercation. Deputies said Anderson
came home from work and had been drinking heavily.
He became angry with the victim and grabbed her by the
throat and started choking her. He then head-butted her
and bit her left hand. He pushed her son to the ground,
leaving an abrasion on the child's left butt cheek.
Anderson claimed he never laid a hand on the victim,
but deputies said she did have scratches on her neck

Local fifth grader earns scholarship


BOD Hastings presents a cerrifmcate to
grader Joli Ann Birchfield. (Courtesy photo)


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Few fifth graders dream of college scholarships
in elementary school, and fewer still actually receive
them.
Joli Ann Birchfield is an exception.
The 12-year-old Chiefland Elementary School was
awarded a certificate on May 28 entitling her to a $4,000
scholarship to attend Central Florida Community College
when she graduates from high school.
Bob Hastings, who sits on the board of trustees of
CFCC and donated money to the scholarship along with
a private benefactor, made the presentation to Joli.
Hastings said the award goes to fifth graders who
excel academically and who might not otherwise have
an opportunity to attend college because of economic
circumstances.
Students must demonstrate the potential and ability to


excel academically to be considered for the scholarship,
and recipients must remain drug and alcohol free'
throughout their school years. Upon graduation from'
high school, the student will be able to use the $4,000
toward tuition and fees for any program at CFCC.
He said Joli is being raised by a single mom, Joanne
Shaver, who has cancer. He said she prepares breakfast,
for'her mom before she goes to school.
Joli awarded a certificate for a S.T.E. P.S. Scholarship.,
The letters stand for Scholarships taking Elementary.
Promising Students to CFCC.
S.T.E.P.S first began in 2005 when scholarship'
endowments were established at three elementary
schools. Scholarships were awarded that year.
Three years later, CFCC is giving away 35 endowed
scholarships at 29 elementary schools in Citrus, Levy
and Marion Counties. The goal is to establish endowed
scholarships, one male and one female, at all 47,
elementary schools in the college's district.

four years at Vanguard Jordan was a state finalist all four
years. He was the team captain his senior year, and has
been a year-round swimmer. Jordan is a member of the
Florida All Star Swimming Team and the Marlin's Swim
Team.
Yes, he is a Levy County resident and attended
Yankeetown School from kindergarten through the eighth
grade.
Jordan was just a typical grade school student, and the
only sport he participated in as a Sand Gnat was Cross
Country.
Jordan was accepted into the International Baccalaureate
Diploma program and chose to attend Vanguard High
School in Ocala over Dunnellon High School because he
wanted to swim in high school. The practice schedules,
as well as the academic opportunities of the IB Program,
inade Vanguard High School the logical choice.
i Jordan obtained several college credits during his 11 th
and 12th grade years, and will obtain additional credits
from the IB Program later this year. He graduated as a
member of the National Honor Society, the Vanguard
Blue Knights, and the Marlins Swim Club.
, "I am definitely a year round swimmer," Jordan said.
t'My swimming season never ends even when it's cold.
Each year on the five days after Christmas, my swim club
team holds a 'Hostage Week,' and we swim a total of 65
iniles in five days."
Jordan's choice of sports may have been influenced
by his mother, Corey, who coached Synchronized
Swimming, and was a synchronized swimmer herself,
before becoming the Director of Camping Services at the
Sheriff's Youth Ranch just outside Inglis.
Graduating with a 4.0 grade point average, Jordan
has received a Dean's Academic Scholarship from the
University ofTampa, where he plans to continue swimming
while obtaining his Registered Nursing degree. He hopes
to obtain an additional athletic scholarship in swimming
during his sophomore year in college.
While attending Vanguard High School, Jordan
competed in the 500 meter free style, the 200 and 400 meter
individual medley which consists of all four swimming
strokes, and the 100 or 200 meter breaststroke.
Jordan gives a lot of credit to one of his teachers at
Yankeetown School, Genie Sturtevant.
"She taught me that I could do better in whatever I chose
to do. She helped this average kid to excel academically,"
Jordan said.


Summer league

helps develop players


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

Even though school is out and the long hot days
of summer are upon us, you can continue to follow
the Williston Red Devil Baseball team.
There are five home games left that will be
played at the Devils Den. These games are played
against some of the betterbaseball programs in the
area.
The varsity games are played with wood bats
instead of the usual aluminum bats all teams use
during the regular baseball season in the spring.
Williston High School Head Coach Jim Smith
said of the Williston wood bat summer games,
"This gives our kids a chance to strengthen their
hands and they have to hit the ball on the button
with the wooden bats. The summer games give
me a chance to find some players for next spring,
and fill certain slots left by the seniors we lost to
graduation. It also allows me to get a look at the
middle school players coming into the program,
and lets them get used to the speed of the game."
The Red Devils have five freshmen that will
be joining the baseball program at the high school
level from Williston Middle School, along with
two freshman transfer students.
Smith said "There is a possibility that we will
have as many as three freshmen on the varsity
team when practice begins next spring."
These summer games also allow the coaches to
work on the development of some of the younger
players.
The games are nine-inning games instead of

It's getting hot in here



Our gyms need air conditioning


y"Jr 7


A lot can be said for some
of the elected officials in Levy
County, both present and past.
A lot of decisions are generally
required of these elected officials,
and in some cases they are asked
to approve certain agendas
and plans that should be a
representation of their voters who
put them in the position to make
these decisions. One would think


their decisions should represent the Steve Jarboei
population they serve. Sports Editor
I don't have the dates when the Williston, Chiefland,
or Cedar Key High School gyms were constructed,
or dates when the middle school gyms in all of Levy
County were approved and built.
I do know the new beautiful Bronson High School/
Middle School gym was completed last year.
The first time I went inside the new Bronson
gym was Aug. 28. I was there to cover a volleyball
tournament. I entered the new gym at the new school
and I could not believe what I was feeling. Everyone
attending the tournament, including myself, was
melting. A big new beautiful building, yet it was like
walking into any other Levy County School gym.
It was just plain uncomfortable, extremely hot and
muggy, just like the gyms at Chiefland, Williston, and
Cedar Key.
1 know this is Florida, and I understand why it is
called "The Sunshine State." It gets hot. But things
ought to be different in a new gym.
I began to listen to the various stories from different
people and there were many different stories as to
why the elected officials approved the plans, then built
this beautiful state of the art facility and failed to air
condition the gym.
The reasons for the heat varied depending on each
person's own opinion. Most went something like this:
"If the school board approved air conditioning in this


new Bronson gym, they would have to air condition all
the other school gyms in Levy County as well.
I remember another volleyball fan wiped the sweat
from her face and added, "They were afraid the utility
bill would be too high to run the air conditioning
during the games."
Maybe if the elected officials who cut the air-
conditioning expense of this new gym during
construction had to hold their meetings in one of these
gyms, they would rethink this irresponsible decision.
As far as the utility bill story, if these same officials
were that concerned about the cost of running the air
conditioning, they should also be concerned about
running the air conditioning in their offices, and shut
them off.
The gyms in Levy County, during August,
September, and early October, are more like saunas
than gyms.
I can't help but wonder something else. What has all
the billions and billions of dollars given to the schools
that many voters willingly pay every week called
the Florida Lottery been spent on? What is Levy
County's share of these billions and billions of dollars?
It certainly is not being spent on air conditioning
systems for gyms.
I can't recall being in a gym outside of Levy County
that is not air-conditioned. Just drive a little North to
Trenton High School. It is an old school but one with
an air-conditioned-gym. Go a little farther to Bell. Not
a brand new school but one with an air-conditioned
gym.
Why is it that Levy County elected officials can't get
the money from these billions and billions of lottery
dollars to air condition the gyms in Levy County?
It seems ironic that Levy County's elected officials
are content to air-condition every building and office of
the school except the one building that actually brings
in revenue: the gym.
Sometimes people making decisions don't represent
the sports fans in Levy County that I have talked with.
Air conditioning the gyms in all of the schools in Levy
County should be a priority now.
Of course, that is just my own opinion.


the regular season seven-inning games.
The remaining home games to be played by the
Red Devils are as follows.

New On DVD

Give 'The Eye' a look,

you 'll see strange things
By Rick Burnham
Editor

Jessica Alba needs an eye transplant. She and her sister were careless with
fireworks when they were small girls, and Jessica lost her eyesight. Now she
needs new eyes, and a donor has come forward.
But not just any donor.
This particular donor had issues, and now, with the donor's eyeballs
transplanted firmly in her head, Jessica has issues as well.
That's the premise of "The Eye," a film released in theaters earlier this year,
and on DVD in recent weeks.
Alba is Sydney Wells, a lovely concert violinist who seems to have adjusted
quite well to life without her eyes. She relies on her other senses to guide her
through, and manages to do quite well, thank you. After all, there are worse
things for a concert violinist to lose. Fingers, for example. That would complicate
things.
Still, life without eyesight leaves much to be desired, so Sydney goes for it,
and doctors proclaim the operation to be a success. She can look left, look right,
follow their fingers back and forth, up and down.
Things are quite blurry at first, but slowly, ever so slowly, the world comes
into focus. Trouble is, focus is not always good, particularly when; there are
ghouls and goblins and corpses running around.
She also starts hearing things, which is interesting, because she got an eye
transplant, not an ear transplant. But you can't allow yourself to get caught up in
these little things.
With all this going on, Sydney Wells understandably starts to lose her ever-
loving mind. She runs around doing things you might associate with a nut case
- breaking windows with her bare hands, seeing strange faces in the mirror,
walking into imaginary restaurants. Those kinds of things.
Finally, because Sydney Wells is not your run-of-the-mill concert violinist,
she decides she has had enough. She enlists the help of her physician friend, Paul,
played by Allesandro Nivola, to get the identity of the eyeball donor. He resists
at first, claiming issues with confidentiality. Eventually, though, he gives in,
primarily because he is a red-blooded male, and she is Jessica Alba.
The story goes international after that, and gets somewhat complicated as
well. But it all comes together nicely at the conclusion, and that is what really
matters.
Alba is not quite ready to join Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, Emma
Thompson and Jodie Foster on a list of the greatest female actors of our time.
But, she has evolved very nicely since playing the female lead in the "Flipper"
series more than a decade ago. In "The Eye," she is quite convincing as a young
woman who is seeing strange things, and is flipping her gourd as a result.
"The Eye" includes a number of disturbing images, and is probably not
suitable for sma children or some senior citizens. They night start seeing things
if you allow them to watch it. But, if you enjoy a decent horror flick, give it a
shot.
"The Eye" 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.

Log Cabin Quilters met June 5 at
the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was
a day to be inside with the air on. Pat
put her Stach and Wach quilt top on.
She will quilt it at home.
Do you need polyester fabric or
maybe something to cover a chair? We
have boxes full of all kinds of fabric
that we are giving away. Double knit
was a fabric that has been with us
for a long time and it now seemed to
wear out. We have people who have
to stop sewing and they have lots of
fabric and don't want to throw it away,


so they bring it to us. We are looking
for someone to use it, so come to the
museum and find what you might be able -
to use.
Greg and six boys were out Tuesday.:,
It was hot for them to work but they .
don't seem to mind. They do so much for-,
us. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was so great with so many
fresh vegetables, rice, squash, eggplant
casserole, cabbage, tomatoes, peppers,
cucumbers and biscuits.

Miss Hone y Says...
Good Morning! Here I sit with a chair full of
love! Is there any better love than puppy love? Sweet
Pea is on the left, Little Bit is on the right, Pug is just
as close as she can get to me on the right and Sugar
Bugger is on the foot rest. Of course, Baby Doll is ,
in the bathroom. She is too small to be with these
rowdy boys! My friend Wanda and I had dinner at the
Driftwood Restaurant in Williston Sunday evening.
Isn't it great to have good friends? Where would I be
without the love of Jesus, my little dogs, and yes my
friends.
Thanks again John you are a true friend! Jackie and Mrs Annie,- may God Bless',
you both. Thanks again Calvin for the trip to Dr. Ballou! I am gonna make this short'
and sweet. I promise to do better next week, so until then, God Bless you all!

RULE DEVELOPMENT
WORKSHOP
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District announces
a rule development workshop to
which all persons are invited..

DATE AND TIME: June 30,
2008, 10:00 a.m.

PLACE: Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District Tampa
Service Office, Governing Board
Room, 7601 Highway 301 North,
Tampa, FL 33637-6759

SUBJECT:The proposed amend-
ments will adopt a reporting form
and specify how to satisfy the
flow meter accuracy verification
reporting requirements currently
contained in Chapter 40D-2,
F.A.C., Water Use Permits.
The District needs accurate
water use data from permittees
to fulfill its statutory responsi-
bilities and to protect the state's
water resource. This information
is crucial in determining permit
compliance, calculating conser-
vation credits, estimating water
use and for use in water supply
planning. District rules require
that flow meters required by
Water Use Permits be tested
for accuracy every 5 years. Cur-
rently permittees have their flow
meters tested and submit the
information in many different
formats. To ensure that the test-
ing is properly performed so that
the flow meters are accurately
tested, staff has developed


standardized accuracy require-
ments and a standardized test
form. The proposed rule amend-
ments incorporate the new flow
meter form and accuracy test
requirements. In addition, staff
has moved some rule language
from one section of the rules to
another to consolidate related
requirements and to clarify the
process.
Pursuant to the provisions of
the Americans with Disabilities
Act, any person requiring spe-
cial accommodations to partici-
pate in this workshop is asked
to advise the agency at least 5

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


20 June 12, 2008


Levy County Journal


Property Appraiser Francis Akins swallows a mouthful of sweet watermelon
as his opponent, Osborn Barker, gets a faceful of wet fruit in the celebrity
watermelon eating contest. Chiefland Fire Chief John Ward, not shown, won
the competition.


Brandon Blackburn, 13, Chiefland, filled both cheeks with watermelon during
the youth watermelon eating competition.


Chiefland Watermelon Queen Madeleine Kelley is shown with her court. On
the left is second runner-up Lauren Etheridge-Slaughter and on the right first
runner-up and Miss Congeniality Heather Perseo.


Jack Spann and his wife Prentice of Spann's Heating and Air purchased the
largest watermelon in the festival from grower Harold Tillis. The purchase price
was $210. Harold Tillis's watermelon weighed 64 pounds.


One of the most colorful floats in the parade was exhibited by GreenSouth
Equipment. The float featured a giant red watermelon slice in the middle.

Watermelon, from Page 1
chairwoman's husband. Tillis provided 400 free melons for the festival.
Late in the day, when a busload of tourists arrived from a visit to Rosewood to find
the festival almost closed, Karen Tillis prevailed on her husband to give each rider on
the tour bus a free watermelon to take with them. The tour bus folks went down to the
park to eat food. They took the watermelons home with them when they departed.
If the watermelon festival makes money this year, Tillis said the Woman's Club
plans to put most of the money back in the community for charities and education.
