Two longtime employees of the Chiefland Post Office are protesting
their suspension without pay by the U.S. Postal Service and alleging the
action was taken in response to their earlier activities as whistleblowers.
, Debbie Hamberger, who worked for 33 years at the Post Office, and
Bonnie George, who worked there 12 years, staged a petition drive last
week near the Post Office to gain public support for their continuing
efforts to get their jobs back.
They have collected more than 600 signatures on petitions with help
from several businesses that posted the petitions.
Co-worker Kim Poole, also a 12-year postal employee, said postal
inspectors. indicated she could be in trouble if she doesn't cooperate with
their investigation. She said they are asking her to testify falsely against
Hamberger and George to bolster their investigation.
"They're trying to get me to lie," Poole said. "They're calling my
husband and telling him to tell me to lie. I have had it. They are crossing
the line to try to get these two people (George and Hamberger) and they
haven't done anything."
The Postal Service has limited its response to a written statement read
by newly appointed Chiefland Postmaster Lisa Fletcher.
"An internal investigation is in process relative to some employees of
the Chiefland Post Office. The investigation is confidential and it is being
handled with the parameters of existing labor agreements and protocols
guiding investigative matters," Fletcher said.
Bill Tyler, spokesman for the Jacksonville office of the Postal Service,
declined to answer any questions. He said the Postal Service would stand
by the statement read by Fletcher and would not answer questions or
disclose allegations at this time.


Threatened With Job Loss
The problems for the three women apparently began May 19 when
Postal Inspectors J.J. Cowen and Joe Cronin from the Miami headquarters
arrived at the Chiefland Post Office to talk to all the employees about
workplace violence and the agency's zero tolerance policy.
George, Hamberger andPoole were taken separately into the Postmaster's
office and threatened with losing their jobs, benefits, retirement, and with
being given jail time. However the postal inspectors didn't say, what was
being alleged, according to a written 'account George and Hamberger
provided the Journal.
The two postal inspectors reportedly came back to the Chiefland Post
Office May 29 with guns and handcuffs visible. They allegedly went
through George's locker without allowing her to consult with legal counsel
or union representatives. She. had requested both, but was denied, the
statement said.
"They searched Debbie Hamberger and Kim Poole's locker as well.
They also searched our purses and even tried to search our vehicles;
however, we all declined to sign authorization to allow them to access our
vehicles without a search warrant," the statement said.
George was placed on suspension without pay and told an investigation
was pending, but nothing more. The inspectors removed cancer medication
from her purse prescribed to George's husband, Jimmy, and never returned
it, she said.

Usher Forest Meeting
After work, Hamberger, George and Poole said they met with a fourth
female co-worker, whom they considered to be a friend, at the Tommy
Usher Pineland Forest. They said it had been an emotional day and they

Child attacked, by pit bull

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A 3-year-old girl was attacked and bitten in the head by a pit bulldog
Sunday during a visit to a Chiefland couple's home, according to city police.
The toddler, Baileigh Welsch, was taken to Shands Hospital in Gainesville
for lacerations to the ear and head. She was treated and released. The dog has
been impounded until a determination is made on whether the animal should
be deemed vicious. The dog will remain impounded for 10 days.
Police Chief Robert Douglas said Baileigh and her mother, Heather Savader
of Virginia Beach, Va., were guests at the home of Nichole and John Rao,
1208 NW 15th Ave., when the attack occurred at about 6:15 p.m. The little
girl was playing with the dog.
The toddler's mother grabbed Baileigh and lifted her above her head to
protect her from the dog. As she lifted Baileigh out of harm's way, the mother
was bitten several times on the inside of her thigh and on her upper left arm.
Some of the bites tore flesh.

Postal. from Paoe 1


wanted to make sure everyone was okay.
But the U.S. Postal Service says the fourth woman claims she was threatened at the
Usher Forest meeting and told to keep her mouth shut. A May 30 Postal Service memo
said the woman who filed the complaint alleges George placed her arms around her waist
and threatened to throw her down and beat her. The same memo alleges Hamberger also
told the woman to keep her mouth shut.
Hamberger and George, who say the allegations are fictional, were suspended for
alleged improper conduct on May 30. Poole, who was part of the Usher Forest gathering,
agrees with Hamberger and George that the meeting was friendly and no threats were
made, but she said she has been pressured to tell a story that fits the allegations being
made by the Postal Service.
Her husband, Daryl Poole, said one of the postal inspectors called him and yelled at
him over the phone to have his wife turn on George. He added that the investigator told
him to tell his wife that Bonnie George was the problem. Poole said the investigator
then accused him of saying George was the problem. Poole said he quickly corrected the
investigator.
"I said 'I didn't say that.' He started screaming and hollering and cursing. He said
'there could be a criminal investigation and if my wife didn't say what they thought was
true, she would be part of the criminal investigation'," Poole said. "I took that to mean,
when she came back to work they would question her, and if she didn't say what they
wanted her to say, she would become a target of the investigation."
Hamberger said investigators tried a different approach with her, claiming that Bonnie
George had given them information about the case, when in fact she hadn't. Hamberger
said they were trying to make it look as though George had turned against her and given
them information.
"There's nothing to give up, but that's what they wanted me to think," she said.

Whistleblower Complaint
Hamberger and George said their whistleblower activities sparked the actions of the
Postal Service. They said they have blown the whistle more than once when they felt the
activities of management were improper or unethical. The most recent whistleblower
complaint occurred last August.
Postal regulations are designed to protect whistleblowers, but Hamberger and George
said the opposite is true in their case.
George provided. the Journal with a statement of misconduct signed by herself,
Hamberger and Poole in August of 2007 alleging misconduct by Postmaster Vickie Smith.
The postmaster had begun charging postal box customers a $14 late fee in early'August.
George said they mailed the statement of misconduct to Postmaster General Jack Potter
in Washington, D.C.
In the statement, the three postal workers said they had been informed by Smith on
Aug. 1 that a fee would be charged to anyone who had not paid their July box rent on or
before July 31. The statement said they did not agree with the postmaster's decision to
implement a late fee because they felt the public should have been notified of the change.
They were also suspicious that the postal service was not giving any kind of notification
to box-rent customers.
"Our main concern and question to be asked of the United States Postal Service is
... Is this condoned by the USPS? Is this the type of behavior they expect from their
supervisors?" the statement said. "To allow supervisors to stoop to an all time low as to
defraud the public to make a profit. We will not be liable for the fraud, mismanagement
and misconduct of such 'supervisors/postmasters'."
Former Postmaster Vickie Smith later sent a letter of apology to customers canceling
the late charge and providing a refund of the money they had paid.
"On Aug. 1, 2007, new procedures were established by our Retail Unit to charge a
late fee for post office boxes that iinidotppay their boxrent that wasddue by the end of the
month. This procedure-was against current-postal policy of giving the customer until the
10", of the following month to pay," the letter said.


Bonnie George (standing) talks to Debbie Hamberger during the petition drive
across the street from the Chiefland Post Office. They collected more than 600
signatures calling for reinstatement in their jobs.
Different Standards
George and Hamberger said their suspensions are unusual in another way. They said
the same clerk who claimed she had been threatened at the Usher Forest meeting had also
complained about an incident on April 10, where she had witnessed another employee
screaming and yelling at George and Hamberger.
In a written statement, she said the screaming upset her so badly that her chest hurt for
three hours. Her written statement said she was so scared she couldn't breathe. She said
the yelling caused her "mental and physical discomfort.
"I now have a fear of this person and am concerned of what she will do next," the
employee wrote.
Hamberger and George. said the employee who yelled and screamed at them and
slammed down two trays of first class mail never lost her job or a paycheck, if she was
disciplined at all. And the incident occurred at the Chiefland Post Office during working
hours.
"She had nothing done to her that was obvious. She still has a job. She still has a
paycheck," George said. "They didn't investigate. They didn't interview me and Debbie.
With us, they took the word of one woman and suspended us without pay."
George and Hamberger also alleged that the Chiefland Post Office tampered with their
mail. They said they received time sensitive mail from the Equal Employment Opportunity
Office South Georgia District on June 20. Post office rules, they said, required them or
an authorized agent to sign for the document. But a retail clerk signed for.them instead,
violating postal rules, they said in a June 22 letter.
The two postal workers said in the letter that the Postal Service must recognize there
is 45 years of combined knowledge of postal policy, rules and regulations, and basic
common sense between them.
"This is a rare quality in the Postal Service today. We will not sit by and allow the
Postal Service to railroad us with trumped up charges," the letter said. "We will not let
this injustice rest. It is what it is!!! We are WHISTLEBLOWERS who did what was right,
in protecting our jobs, integrity as well as the citizensPO box cust6ners b11e Chieflad
Post Office. We will not stop until we have been reinstated to our job- a:id- all charges
dropped against us."

City, school board at odds over


crossing guard responsibilities


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The continuing war of words between the Chiefland
City Commission and the Levy County School Board
continued recently with neither side agreeing on who
should pay the extra costs of school crossing guards.
Commissioners have traditionally paid the $10,800
annual cost of crossing guard salaries. The school
board reimburses the city for the salaries. But the city
has begun paying required retirement pay to the guards
and would like the school board to reimburse the city
for the additional $2,880.
City commissioners were set to fire off another
letter to the school board at their June 23 meeting, but
Superintendent Cliff Norris beat them to the punch,
sending the city a letter early Tuesday denying the
city's request for more crossing guard money.
Norris said state budget cuts make it impossible
for the school board to pay the additional costs of
Chiefland school crossing guards. He said the school
board recognizes the crucial role that crossing guards
play in helping protect children, but he said it also
knows that national, state and individual communities
are facing "some of the most challenging times in
recent history."
"The School Board of Levy County has received a
reduction of 4.2 percent in Safe School Funds from
which we allocate the crossing guard budget," Norris
wrote. "Thus, from a financial standpoint, the board is
unable to honor your request."
Norris also suggested the city review the original
inter-local agreement with the school board which says
the school board is not obligated to contribute to the
expense of school crossing guards.
"Crossing guards are not within the core mission of
the School Board. Crossing guards are the responsibility
and jurisdiction of the appropriate city/county entities.
However, as always, we stand willing to assist the city
in its mission as long as funds are available," Norris
wrote. .
Norris said the school board did agree with his
recommendation for the city to re-evaluate the assigned
times and number of crossing guards to add flexibility
to the city's crossing guard schedules. He said he and
Assistant Superintendent Jeff Davis are willing to
work in partnership with the city to secure the safety of
children and explore an amended agreement for times


and number of crossing guards.
Chiefland City Manager Grady Hartzog said the
letter doesn't resolve the situation.
"I don't think that leaves us anywhere," he said.
"We'll have to work it out with the crossing guards if
we change schedules."
In other business:
*. Commissioners awarded Waste Pro, the current
city garbage contractor, a five-year contract for
residential and commercial garbage service in the city.
The new contract raises the monthly bill to $17.66 per
home, a $2.88 increase. Homes which use carts will
see their monthly bill go'from $21.22 to $26.75. For
rolloffs, Waste Pro, Watson Construction C&D and
Emerald Waste will share the contract. The garbage
contract had not been revised in 10 years. The increase
in customer costs was driven in part by higher fuel
costs and by higher landfill charges.
Commissioners prepared a plaque for the
Chiefland Woman's Club and Murray Tillis for their
contributions to the Chiefland Watermelon Festival.
Accepting the plaque were Woman's Club President
Karen Brown, Festival Chairwoman Karen Tillis and
Vicki Pitts, who helped organize and run the festival.
Murray Tillis provided the free seedless watermelons
from his farm. A plaque was also given to Wayne
Weatherford of the Chiefland Area Athletic Association
for the group's contributions to city youth.
Auditor Robert Beauchamp said the city
received high marks in the 2007 fiscal year audit.
He said the city received an "unqualified opinion,"
meaning the city received the best possible opinion on
the way it manages it finances.
Commissioners gave final approval to Norman
Scoggins' request to annex a one-acre parcel with a
residence into the city. The property is on the north side
of County Road 320 across from the future hospital.
The board gave final approval to a commercial
lease agreement with Nature Coast Service, LLC
which plans to lease building 3 at the industrial park.
The company plans to distribute and store pole barn
lumber material.
The city earned a net profit of $5,455.75
from the sale of surplus equipment at Weeks Auction
Company, Inc., Ocala. The city received $2,800 for a
1996 Ford F-450 flatbed truck, $350 for a 1990 Chevy
van, $2,300 for an old tractor mower. The auctioneer's
commission was $634.25.

Cub Scout event

a huge success

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Local Cub Scout officials have established Chiefland
as a suitable location for an annual day camp following
a successful day camp event last week.
The three day camp, held at the United Methodist
Church of Chiefland, and attended by 33 children,
was deemed a complete success by organizers, along
with a couple of regional Cub Scout officials.
Camp Director Gary Keeler'said the event had to
pass 63 different tests to become accredited, and did
so without a single failure. Thus, he said, Chiefland
becomes a nationally accredited day camp in its first
year of operation a rarity in the scouting world.
"They look at safety aspects, activities, staff, a whole
book of things 63 of them," he said. "Not too many
day camps are accredited their first year, but we did it."
Among the attendees at the camp was Patricia
Harding, a regional Cub Scout official from the
Jacksonville, and Gary Stasco, a district executive from
Gainesville.
And then there were the kids, including 26 scouts
ages 7-11, four tagalongs 6-10 year old siblings of
scouts, and three "totlots," who were children of area
volunteers. Those volunteers made a big difference in
the camp, Keeler said.
"The whole event was run strictly by volunteers,"
he said. "We could not have made this.happen without
them. People like Bob Ross, who is the local Boy Scout
Troop Leader, made this thing happen."
Two Cub Scout Packs, 514 and 126, participated in
the event, Both are from Chiefland, Keeler said. Food
was supplied by the Levy County School Board.
The theme of the camp was "Cub Castaways," and
organizers did their best to convert the area around the
church into a tropical island. Palm trees sprang up, nets
and shells were in abundance, and activities were slanted
toward an island setting.
"We had a map and compass activity, we made rope
out of twine, and had archery, and BB-gun activities,"
Keeler said.
Each of the events gave the Scouts a leg up toward
achieving their next rank in the Cub Scout structure.
The ranks include Tiger, Wolf, Bear and Weblos.
"There are requirements you must finish to complete
that next rank," Keeler said. "Every one of the activities
we did out there will work toward achieving that next
rank or an award."
Keeler said the camp will now become an annual
event, and that his organization will need all the adult
volunteers it can getfobr'next year." -i

The Supreme Court got it right we need guns


By Rick Burnham
Editor

If you put any stock at all in
presidential election polls, the
future is beginning to look bleak
for individual civil liberties. That's
one reason why last week's decision
by the Supreme Court to reaffirm the
Constitutional right of individual U.S.
citizens to own a gun is so important.
If you missed it, the judges voted 5-4
in favor of an earlier decision by a panel
of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia Circuit, which ruled
in favor of a DC man's suit regarding gun
ownership. Dick Heller wanted a gun, and
had argued since 2003 that the D.C. ban
on firearms was unconstitutional.
The Supreme Court's decision had
been only minutes old Thursday when
the age-old debate about gun control was
rekindled once again. Are guns bad? Or


are the people who use them in destructive
ways bad?
People of a right-leaning conservative
nature generally say that is it the person
who pulls the trigger that is flawed, not
the gun. Put a loaded gun on the table
and leave it there all day, and chances are
pretty good that it will not kill.
What's more, take away the gun of a
criminal and he or she will simply resort to
other means of destructive force. Knives.
Baseball bats. Lug wrenches. Food
processors. Basically, whatever they can
get their hands on.
Those of a left-leaning, liberal nature
say guns are evil. Generally speaking, they
believe that if all firearms were eliminated
from the face of the earth, there would be
one heck of a lot less violence. Take away
a convict's gun and he becomes a model
citizen.
The point that those on the left do not
seem to grasp- and this is perhaps the


most important point of the entire debate
- is gun control laws do little more than
take guns out of the hands of law-abiding
citizens. Keeping an illegal gun out of the
hands of a criminal is about as easy as
keeping illegal drugs out of the hands of
junkie.
Here's a perfect illustration of that
point. A dramatic gun-control law was
instituted in Great Britain following the
1997 shooting of 17 children in Dunblane.
Almost all handguns immediately became
illegal for practically all British citizens.
As a direct result, officials there reported
that some 162,000 liandguns were turned
in, and tranquility seemed certain to be
right around the comer.
In the next 10 years, handgun-related
crime nearly doubled.
British officials came to a very simple
conclusion: criminals do not obey laws.
Strict gun laws only affect the actions of
those who would normally obey the law in


the first place.
So why did handgun-related crime
nearly double if the number of bad guys
with guns stayed the same? Another.
simple conclusion. Without the threat of
a "good guy" with a gun putting a stop to
the nonsense, the bad guy is emboldened.
Had there been one or two law-abiding
citizens with concealed handguns on the
campus of Virgina Tech April 16, 2007,
chances are many of the 32 students
gunned down by a madman might still be
alive.
You can't tell that to a liberal, of
course. But you can reassure them that
your home, and their home as well, is
a little bit safer tonight because of the
Supreme Court's historic vote,
A would-be criminal must stop and
consider-a simple question before he or
she breaks in: does the person on the other,
side of that door have a flyswatter in his or
her hands? Or is it a gun.


A dead horse that needs another beating


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


horse when I write about rising gasoline prices
every week, but the issue remains very much
alive. If you doubt it, check your next gasoline
bill at the pump.
The Internet news organization, MarketWatch.com,
carried a story recently saying surging crude oil prices
could surpass $200 a barrel in four years, pushing
gasoline prices as high as $7 a gallon. I hope the reverse
is true. I hope gas prices begin drop rapidly, and soon.
If the price of a regular gallon of gasoline soars to
$7 per gallon, diesel is certain to rise higher. When that
happens, we can safely refer to farming in Levy County
in the past tense. Most farming practices, with the
exception of industrial sized dairies, will sink below the
waves with $7 gas and $7.50 diesel.
Not that anyone in Washington gives a hoot.
It's a virtual certainty that Levy County people
working in Gainesville or Ocala won't be able to afford
the daily commute at 7 bucks a gallon. Many Levy
County residents work in one of the cities. .
We're becoming gluttons for punishment in the new
global market. Back in the tlinton era, President Bil and
the Republican Congress decided to approve the North
Letter to the Editor


American Free Trade Agreement over my objections.
They weren't exactly listening to me back then, and I
am certain none of the powerbrokers in Congress are
listening to what I have to say now. It was the only thing
Clinton and the Republicans ever agreed upon.
NAFTA was the beginning of the end as far as I
was concerned. It was the start of a different way of
thinking about American economics. It was the opening
of our borders to "free but unfair trade," and it meant
foreign countries would no longer orbit the United
States' economy. It meant U.S. companies would fan
out across the globe to increase their profit margins and
take American manufacturing jobs with them. It meant
China could buy an American oil company in the Gulf of
Mexico and ship the oil back to the Chinese homeland,
rather than the U.S. It meant Alaskan oil could be
shipped to Japan.
Oil has become like wheat and soybeans. Anyone can
buy it at any price in the open. market. This is modem
free enterprise. Screw the consumer. The almighty buck
is more important. There is no cap on profits, no limit to
price gouging and no limit to stealing. The oil czars and
Wall Street czars are suffocating the American economy

it's all in good sport, mind you.'-.'f" 1J j 15A) 'v

More to insurance issue than meets the eye


In response to your article on Page 3 of your June
26 issue titled Chiefland saves $11,000 in insurance,"
I want to be clear on several issues that were stated in
your article. I never said "I was not given enough time to
prepare." What I said was I was not brought in the loop as
the city's insurance agent about the bid process from the
beginning before the commission voted on going out to
bid. I could have informed the commission before they
made their decision to go out to bid, four months prior to
their renewal date of Oct. 1, that they would be excluding
their current carriers) from the process.
Insurance companies do not have their renewal rates
available that far in advance. The city's current fire
department insurance carrier, VFIS, which we represent
in the majority of the fire departments around this region,
did not have their renewal rates available for the bid
deadline and that excluded them from the bid process.
The city's 2007 financial report was read at the beginning
of the meeting and Robert Beauchamp said the city had
outperformed again last year as it continually does, due to
overestimates of expenses and underestimated revenues.
Every year for the last seven years we have worked
with the city's management and have been able to do a
fine job of budgeting what the city's insurance costs were
going to be without having to go out to bid four months
in advance. I do not have a problem with the city going
.out to bid and I certainly understand the tight economy.
What I am saying is at least make sure it is a level playing
field and not exclude the city's current carriers) from
the bid process. If you are going out to bid, request bids
to come in two months prior to your renewal dates so all
companies will compete and not just two. This way you
get the most opt of the bid process.
No other insurance companies turned in'bids to the
city after advertising for bids in the newspapers. That is
due largely in part to the fact that carriers do not want to
commit to fourth quarter rates in the second quarter. Mr.
Hartzog, the city manager, never informed or consulted
with us that the city was going out to bid before the
commission had already made the decision, on Mr.
Hartzog's recommendation, to go out to bid. I learned
about the city going out to bid by an email after the
commission made their decision to go put to bid. The next
time I was in the City Hall is when Mr. Hartzog told me
face to face in his office.
Last year alone, we saved the city over $30,000 in
workers compensation premiums over the previous year,
which resulted in a 22 percent decrease in the package
premium. This year we were able to secure a renewal
package with the workers compensation from Brown &
Brown that was a total reduction in premiums of another
22 percent, with increased exposure each year.


The city's insurance committee' reviewed both bids
and determined to go with the Florida League of Cities
as their recommendation to the commission. I would
encourage the city to switch carriers if it benefits the city
and is an apples-to-apples move. But, this is an apples-
to-oranges, as VFIS offers coverages and services that no
other carrier can offer to the fire departments. If I were to
list all the differences and services it would take up the
whole page.
The main one is the FLOC does not offer an accident
and sickness policy for the firefighters, The accident and
sickness policy has a separate estimated premium of
$5,300 and is half of the quoted $11,000 difference. This
policy provides disability payments to the firefighters if
they are injured or become sick along with many other
benefits.
I was present at the bid opening and Brown & Brown's
total package premium was $2,123 less than the FLOC,
without fire. department coverage, as we have always
excluded from B&B because VFIS has the best coverage
for the fire department. The VFIS property and general
liability premium was estimated to be $8,500.
I never saw the breakdown sheets that the city's
insurance committee came up with that showed the
$11,000 savings. If I was brought into the loop early
enough I would have recommended to get a quote with
the FLOC without the fire department coverage, that way
you can compare the coverages equally as a part of the
bid process.
As far as the city's health insurance goes we were the
only bidder after two separate advertising periods for
bids. We gave the city the early renewal rates with Blue
Cross & Blue Shield and quotes through Vista HealthPlan
and Untied HealthCare that gave the city many options
and choices which could have saved up to 50 percent off
the current years' premium.
But the city's insurance committee decided not to
touch the benefits of the city's health insurance. They
recommended to the commission to keep the current
benefits and take the 22.5 percent increase. If the city
manager was worried about "that savings could mean
the difference in saving someone's job this year," then
he could have saved many more jobs with that kind of
savings off the much larger health insurance premiums.
But once again the city would have to give up coverages
for the reduced premiums.
And that, in a nut shell is how the city "saves $11,000
in insurance" premiums this year by giving up valuable
coverage for the fire department and its firefighters.

Police catch three in theft of Chiefland Wal-Mart store


Trio allegedly took school supplies, i

fireworks, camping equipment

By Terry Witt .
Staff Writer

Three employees of the McDonald's Restaurant in the Wal-Mart Supercenter were
arrested Monday attempting to steal merchandise from the store.
And it wasn't their first theft.
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas said McDonald's Manager Kristi Irene Stiller,
37, Trenton, and Old Town residents Holly Locke, 29, and Sylvia R. Smith, 23, had
been removing Wal-Mart merchandise for months. They were charged with felony grand -,
theft (retail) and misdemeanor criminal conspiracy.
Wal-Mart Loss Prevention Specialist.Mike Flowers said he had been investigating
allegations of thefts committed by McDonald's employees for some time. On Monday
evening, he observed a shoppirig cart containing merchandise and stationery just outside
the McDonald's office.
Video surveillance was maintained on the cart until the three McDonald's employees
pushed it into the McDonald's office. When the cart was brought back out of the office
it was empty. A short time later the three suspects were seen pushing a shopping cart
loaded with a large box taped shut.
As the three suspects were exiting the store the anti-theft alarm sounded. Flowers
stopped the three and asked to examine what they had in the box. The women told
Flowers the box contained property belonging to McDonald's, which they were
transferring to a different McDonald's restaurant. They told Flowers that Wal-Mart
would have to pay for the property if the box was opened.
Flowers was familiar with Wal-Mart's vendor and tenant policies and knew he c6uld
open the box. Inside the box he found $446.75 worth of merchandise (mostly school
supplies) belonging to Wal-Mart. City police had been called in advance and were
waiting to make the arrest.
Police also travelled to the Trenton home of Stiller and to the home of Locke and Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas (top) examines property recovered in the

Cross City man gets 5 years for selling drugs


A Cross City man was sentenced to five years in state
prison last month on charges of selling the synthetic
drugs methamphetamine and ecstacy in his motel room in
Chiefland in 2007.
Frank F. Higganbotham, 908 Stockdag Road, Cross
City, was given credit for 195 days served in jail, but
Circuit Judge Maurice Giunta said he would have to repay
the state $91,250 for his incarceration in state prison.
State statute requires judges to impose a $50 per day fine
to pay for the cost of housing the inmates in a correctional
facility.
Higganbotham was targeted for investigation when the
Levy County Drug Task Force received information from
two independent sources that he was in possession of a
large quantity of ecstasy (MDMA) and methamphetamine
at the motel room.
Investigators pulled over a car whose occupants had
entered Higganbotham's room at 3 a.m. and left a short
time later. They found methamphetamine in the car,
circuit court records said. The occupants of the car told
investigators they had been using methamphetamine all
day with Higganbotham and the woman accompanying
him. They said he had a large quantity of methamphetamine
in his front pants pocket.
When law enforcement officers entered the motel
room, Higganbotham attempted to flush. a plastic baggie
containing five prepackaged baggies of MDMA and four
prepackaged baggies of methamphetamine down the
toilet. A sheriff's lieutenant rescued the baggie before it
disappeared.
Investigators also found $5,000 cash in the room
along with folded aluminum foil used for smoking
methamphetamine. They also found a propane nozzle
commonly used in transferring anhydrous ammonia
into propane tanks for use in the manufacture of
methamphetamine, court records said.
In other sentencing:
Harvy Eaglin, 29, 50 Mullet Road, Yankeetown, was
sentenced by Circuit Judge James Nilon to 18 months in
state prison, with credit for 91 days served, on a charge
of failure to register as a sex offender. Eaglin will have to
repay the state $27,000 for his incarceration.
Investigators for the sheriff's office said Eaglin was
arrested on June 4, 2006 after he became angry and kicked
his female companion in the hand as she was packing to
leave him.
Michael Shane Bailey, 31, 13350 N.W. 90th Ave.,
Chiefland, was sentenced by Judge James Nilon to 36
months in state prison, with 192 days served, on a charge
of battering a woman he knew was pregnant or should
have known. He will pay $54,000 for his incarceration.
The victim, who was four months pregnant, was leaving
the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Chiefland when Bailey


battered her by pulling her hair, pushing her and slapping
the right side of her head. His probation was revoked.
Michael Samples, 20, Inglis, was sentenced by Circuit
Judge Maurice Giunta to 29.25 months in state prison, with
540 days credit for time served, on a charge of escape. He
will pay the state $43,850 for his incarceration.
Circuit Court records said Samples failed to return from
a weekend pass he had been given at Levy Forestry Camp,
a former juvenile detention facility in Goethe State Forest,
which is now closed. He had been court ordered to remain
at the facility for a specific amount of time.
James R. Henry, 49, 16730 N.W. 80th Ave., Trenton,
was sentenced by Circuit Judge Maurice Giunta to 27
months in state prison, with 573 days credit for time served,
for causing bodily injury while driving under the influence.
He must repay the state $40,500 for his incarceration.,
Court records said Henry was on the wrong side of U.S.
19 when he hit another vehicle almost head-on.
Jamil Alexander Adams, 29, 7664 N.E. 184th Terrace,
Williston, was sentenced by Circuit Judge Stand Morris to
30 months in state prison, with credit for 31 days served,
on charges of selling cocaine to an undercover confidential
source on May 12. He must pay the state $45,000 for his
incarceration.
Tony Summers, 21, 1050 S.W. 2nd Drive, Chiefland,
was sentenced by Circuit Judge Stan Morris to 21.2 months
in state prison, with credit for 562 days served, on a charge
of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute.
His probation was revoked. He must pay the state $31,800
for his incarceration.
Philip Scott Grant, 40, 24 S.E. 151st Ave., Old Town,
was sentenced by Circuit Judge Maurice Giunta to one year
and one day in state prison, with credit for 64 days served,
on a charge of selling a $20 piece of crack cocaine to an
undercover Levy County Drug Task Force confidential
source on Aug. 3. He must pay the state $18,300 for his
incarceration.

difference in the lives of the people in District 10. I believe with all my heart that the
seat reserved in the Florida House for the Representative form District 10 belongs to
the people of District 10."

An Open Letter To the Citizens of Levy County,


Hello, my name is Johnny Smith. Over the past 7 1/2 years, it truly has been a sincere honor and a privilege to serve as your Levy County Sheriff I have 26 years
of dedicated local law enforcement experience. Before being elected as your Sheriff in 2000, I served with the Chiefland and Williston Police Departments; how-
ever the majority of my experience is with the Levy County Sheriffs Office. Professionally, I have served in the patrol division and criminal investigations divi-
sion, working major case crimes. In 1997, I graduated from the 189'1 Session of the F.B.I. National Academy. On a personal note, I am married to Marcia Asbell
Smith of Bronson and we have one son, Landon, age 12. We attend the First Baptist Church of Bronson.
Your Sheriff's Office is in great shape! We have worked hard over the past eight years to meet the needs of our county as it relates to law enforcement and
our accomplishments are many. Some of these include:

Drug Task Force-This unit has maintained an extremely aggressive stance in it's fight against illegal drugs making record-breaking arrests.
Decreased Crime Rate-Since 2006, the crime rate in Levy County has decreased 16.6 %; robberies are down 40 %; burglaries and thefts are down by 21 %
respectively.
+ Inmate Work Crew-Initiated an inmate work crew, which has cleaned up more than 90,000 lbs. of trash from the county roadways since implementation
several months ago.
+ "Child Lures"- Started the sexual abuse and abduction prevention program to help educate our children and parents on the tactics that offenders / predators
use to "lure" and hurt our children. Partnering with the school system, the program is currently taught by our School Resource Officers in Levy County
Schools every year as part of the curriculum.
Sexual Offender/Predator Checks-Our deputies are dispatched every 30 days to validate and verify addresses of known registered sexual offenders/ preda-
tors so the public can know their whereabouts. (State law only requires this every 6 months.) We have gone above and beyond this requirement.
+ Business Watch/Ag. Watch-In an effort to create a closer working relationship with business owners and the agricultural community, we created and imple-
mented a "Business Watch" and an "Ag Watch" program. These programs have been extremely successful and a "win win" for our county.
Corrections Accreditation-Through hard work our jail has been awarded the "Florida Corrections Accreditation and is 100% compliant with the "Florida
Model Jail Standards" and is being ran extremely efficient.
+ Grant Acquisitions-Many of the programs implemented have been funded through the acquisition of almost 1 million dollars in state and federal grants.

These are just a few of our accomplishments over the past eight years. I am extremely proud of our record. It is through Strong Leadership and Good
Management Practices; and having the right people heading up the different divisions of your Sheriffs Office, coupled with the hard work and dedication of the
fine men and women who work here, that we have accomplished this success. We will continue everyday to build upon this success to meet the needs of our citi-
zens who we are entrusted to serve. In conclusion, I am humbled that the people of Levy County have entrusted me to serve as your Sheriff for the past eight
years. I again ask for your support and vote on August 26th.
Sincerely,
9anny SmifA

Chiefland's


golf course


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

In the early '70s outdoor entertainment centered mainly
on hunting and fishing for the residents of Chiefland.
That was before a group of local citizens got together
and decided the growing town of Chiefland needed other
outdoor activities. On a parcel of land donated to the group |
by Bud Bishop, located a few miles outside the city limits,
the group set out to build a golf course. -- Iii iH
The construction was complete in 1974, and a nine-hole .
golf course with one tee box was opened to the public. As
the membership continued to grow at the new golf course the second nine holes were cbnsl
opened in 1985.
The course is now an 18-hole par 72 golf course, and one of the finest in Levy County.
Over the years the lowest score shot on the course was a par 63. This was accomplished
although neither are official according to course officials. One person was believed toihave
hole, and the other could not produce a scorecard.
Over the years the membership at the "Home of the Rye Grass" Chiefland Golf Course'
strong today.
The golf course is home to three different men's leagues and one league for the womenc
Over the years there have been some famous celebrities from the professional sports -ea
round of golf at the Chiefland golf course. In 2005 the Atlanta Braves Chipper Jones'playd
past year Green Bay Packer Mike Collins played a round of golf while visiting family anid
hometown.
The golf course also holds their annual Rye Grass Tournament in October of eachyehr;'
annual tournament this coming October.
The golf course is well maintained year round by Golf Course Maintenance Supervisobf

"No. 7 is the toughest hole
because it is the longest hole
with a narrow fairway, and it
is just a Par 4. Also, No. 11
has two sharp doglegs and it is
a long shot in to the green."

Volleyball clinic provides


solid foundation for youth



Story and photos by Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

Lady Indians Head Volleyball Coach Emily Gore was wrapped up in her clinic full of
interested future Lady Indian volleyball hopefuls June 25.
Gore has been spending her time inside the Chiefland gym teaching the basic '
fundamentals of the game to a group ranging from third and fourth graders, right up to
varsity team hopefuls this coming fall.
"I have been teaching the four basic fundamentals of the game," she said "Serving
both underhanded and overhanded, passing, setting, and the basics to hitting that include
steps, approach, and correct arm swing."
The clinic has been about having fun, playing games and having various team relay Kelsey, Miller learns the fine art of serving from Chiefland Coach Emily Gore.
competition, she added.
Gore has been aggressive in teaching the group of young ladies the finer points
to make them better volleyball players. Her program has been straight forward and ..
she began with passing. She explained the basic forearm pass is one of the first easy R .
things that new volleyball players learn, and also one of the first things they forget. The
forearm pass is already awkward to new players learning the sport. There is no other
sport that uses the body to move a ball the way volleyball does. ,
Often new players, as well as some seasoned players in the sport, will call upon their 4 '
experiences and try to use their hands instead of their arms. "
After going over the fundamentals of passing, serving, setting, and hitting the ball, -
the young ladies competed in live action.
Gore also passed along some very helpful tips that an experienced player like herself
has learned in order to make better passes.
Class attendees included: Abbie Loyd, Kelsey Barber, Kattie.Warren, Kellie Jones,
Hayley Pate, Eliza Renaud, Baily Beauchamp, Lauren Stalvey, Nicole Crews, Kelsi
Alexander, Akira Gollihne, Meghan Schmidt, Kelsey Miller, Libby Sheffield, Amber
Baritean, and Kelsie Dukes. Dozens of local girls took part in the volleyball clinic.

The summer league baseball .
regular season is coming to an
end this week. I watched the
game June 26 as the 3A Williston
Red Devils hosted the 6A
Buchholz Bobcats.
The game ended in a 1-0
score in favor of the Bobcats,
and it was a very well played
ball game by both teams. The S
Steve Jarboe
kids played their hearts out when Sports Editor
the other team would threaten to
score. The game had everything, good hitting, good
pitching, and many outstanding defensive plays.
The game also had a questionable call, which seems
to be happening more and more, in all sports. In this
case it was the home plate umpire.
This one call happened to make the difference in the
one run ball game.
There were runners on second and third with just one
out. The batter hit the ball sharply to the third baseman
who fielded it as the base runner on third started home.
The third baseman wisely chose to throw to home plate
to prevent the runner from scoring. The home plate
umpire was positioned behind the catcher during the
play and then moved to the side and called the runner
safe.
What most everyone else saw was the throw from
the third baseman was in the catcher's glove before
the runner started his slide, and the catcher was on his
knees over the plate and applied the tag. By the time the
umpire moved to the side of the catcher to actually see
the play,.the runner had wedged his foot between the
catcher's legs and was touching home plate. The tag was
already made, but the umpire called the runner safe.
When the call was challenged by the coach, the
umpire stated the foot was on the plate before the tag
was made. This umpire could not have possibly seen
through the catcher's body to make the right call. It was
quick but the tag was made before the base runner's foot
reached home plate.
There was another umpire in the field with another
angle of the play. The home plate umpire could have
asked for help from the other umpire, but as is so often
the case he did not.
This reminded me of a lot of calls or the lack of
calls made during this past season in all sports at the
high school level.
High school sports games should be about the
athletes playing the games, not the officials, umpires, or
referees, as it seems to more often than not be the case.
It is just a fact of life that high school athletes today
are much faster, quicker, bigger, stronger, and more
talented, than ever. Simply put, the talent level in the
pool of officials available has not kept up with the talent
of athletes participating in all high school sports.


Instead of addressing this issue as it needs to be
addressed with better training, and follow up training,
the officials are simply given more power shutting out
the fans, the coaches, and more importantly the players
from voicing their disapproval with calls they feel are
wrong.
The officials can have fans thrown out of gyms,
stadiums, and other facilities if they voice their
disagreement too strongly toward a referee, umpire,
or other official. Basketball coaches are forced to sit
after a first warning from a referee, then thrown out of
the.game if a second disagreement arises. Players are
punished by being made to sit out a game or games. The
same people who continue to ignore the lack of talent in
the official pools are the same ones that make the rulings
against coaches and players, continuing to ignore the
real problem.
High school athletics need more-talented and better-
trained officials, not more rules.
Let me explain why my opinion about the lack of
talented well-trained officials is quickly becoming a real
problem in high school sports.
The NFL for example after so many questionable
calls were shown to be totally wrong, finally went to
"Instant Replay" with certain rules applied. The critics
immediately brought up a problem with the time it
takes to review a replay, saying it took too long for the
officials to make a decision. However, this still left the
final decision to one head official.
Now we have booth officials who can stop play and
challenge a call made by a referee if they choose.
These officials are professional, full-time, well-paid
referees, but are far from perfect. A website entitled
"Upon Further Review," illustrates this perfectly. NFL
booth officials challenged referees' calls 147 times, and
34 calls were reversed.
One referee was challenged by the booth official 10
times and had his calls reversed four times. That's 40
percent wrong calls, and he still referees today in the
NFL.
If these professionals can be wrong at such a high
percentage, what makes the pool of high school officials
think they can't be wrong from time to time.
It's all about fairness to the kids for a referee to get it
right. I am still waiting for that one official that will stop
play in a sport and say, "I made the wrong call on that
play. After all, it is not a bad thing to get it right."
One last note. When the playoffs start in any sport,
there should never be a hometown official assigned to
officiate a game involving his or her home town team or
alma mater.
Hopefully we will see improved officiating in all
sports in the 2008-2009 high school sports season
through out the entire state. Maybe, just maybe Florida
High School Athletic Association officials will address
real problems of qualifications, training programs
and follow up observations of their employees called
officials.
Of course, that is just my own opinion.


Bronson racing

By John Meeks
Speedway Media

The Staff at Bronson Motor Speedway was proud
to pay respect to a true legend of Florida racing last
Saturday night as they held the inaugural Charlie
Meyer Tribute. The tribute was a way to honor the
accomplishments of one of the best Figure 8 racers in
the country.
Ten of the best Figure 8 Drivers, including Charlie
Meyer himself, took the green for the feature event.
Robbie Hage used his front row starting spot to take
an early lead. He was followed by Cliff Rousseau
and Zack Perry. Robert Aaron was charging through
the field trying to track down the leaders. Hage built
a pretty good lead until .the pace was slowed for a
tremendous "T-Bone" at the intersection on the Figure
8 course.
The accident eliminated contender Perry and Neil
Herne, Jr. Once the race restarted Hage continued to
show the way. Rousseau and Aaron put up a strong
charge but neither could pass the eventual winner,
Robbie Hage.
The grand finale of the night was the School Bus
Figure 8 and the crowd was not disappointed as there
were several close calls in the intersection throughout
the race! "Pops" Armstrong would start on the pole,
but had transmission problems and could not get the
huge bus rolling off to a good start. Tony Clark took
his No. 17 Bus to Victory Lane, with Robert Aaron in
the No. 1 Bus and Mark Wilkins piloting the No. 10
Hungry Howie's Bus charging after him in the final
laps!
In Limited Sportsman action, Matt Blum passed
Mike Baker just before halfway in their 30 lap feature
to capture another win. Baker had to settle for second.
The best battle of the night was a four-way struggle
for third.
The competition is really heating up in the Super
Stock Division! Brent Cooper witnessed his winning
ways come to an end at the hands of Larry Welter, Jr.
The driver of the No. 58 led all 25 laps on his way to
the win and Tommy Ausburn finished third for another
solid run.
Eric Gellman dominated the Thunder Stock feature
until a mechanical gremlin slowed the pace. It appeared
he had a large enough margin to coast to the win but
Larry Welter, Sr. passed him with only a few laps
remaining.
Dustin Hughes would take another victory in the
FWD Hornet Division and Lamar Smith was victorious
in the RWD Hornet Division.
There will be no racing July 5 enjoy the Fourth
of July Holiday! On Saturday July 12 we will host
our rescheduled Politicians Rally. We had over 20
candidates pledge to come out and speak to the crowd,
so don't miss it! Limited Sportsman, Super Stocks,
Thunder Stocks and Hornets will all be in action. Adult
admission is only $10 and kids 11 and under are free!
For more information, call (352) 486-2763.

This is the point when my biggest parental fear kicks in.
Boredom: the root of all evil.
The words "I'm bored" have always been considered
unspeakable in my home. (Something akin to swear
words in other homes.) Nevertheless, my kids have
figured out ways to convey this same message without
saying a word. Pacing. Eating. Stewing.

a short list of stuff they may need, such as glue or extra

These brainstorming events, often lasting hours,
always seem to do the trick. Once they have a physical
list of all the activities they can spend their time doing,
we see an immediate night-and-day difference in our
children. Our home is a different place once we pull
our heads out of the sand and decide to take an active
approach to summertime restlessness.
I know this sacred list can't make them safe by any
means. It can however offer solutions to the too-much-
idle-time-syndrome, a terrible state inevitably leading to
disaster.

cost as much as milk, it takes
roughly $6 to make it to the closest
town and back. I'm still searching
for that economy car that seats
nine passengers. For now, I'm
afraid, my family will be spending
a lot of time at home this summer.
And if I'm not extremely
vigilant, I'll end up with a house
full of child Screen-Zombies. (You
know, the slack-jawed, glazed-
eyes, hearing impaired-ness caused
by too much television, computers,
video games, movies, and cell
phones.)
Ever see "Children of the
Corn?"
I'm not sure what's worse:
having a multitude of strangers
shape the minds of my children
through virtual reality with
entertainment for the masses and
finely-tuned marketing strategies,
or my children running around
trying to find something to occupy
their time, and having a multitude
of strangers and friends shape their
minds in the real world.
So at the end of this seemingly
mandatory weeklong adjustment
period, my husband and I finally
come to the realization that we
must do something. (Quick, aren't
we?)
After much discussion, as if
we've never been faced with this
before, we decide to have each
child make a list of all the things
he or she likes to do. (Occasionally
this takes a little nudging, prodding
and creative enthusiasm on our
part.)
Just one stipulation: for every
item that involves transport and/or
money, there must be five activities
that do not. We try, to allow foz a
very small budget-for these things-
to-do-at-home and the kids make


Miss Honey Says...
Good Morning!
Here I sit with a chair
full of love again, yes
puppy love, but is there
any truer love? I don't
think so! Sweet Pea
on the left chair arm,
Little Bit on my right,
Pug up on the back of
the chair and Sugar on
the footrest. Now you
tell me they don't love
me! Never make me
believe it. Baby Doll in
the bathroom she is to
little to trust with these
other guys!
Today is my birthday, so "Happy B-Day to Me!"
Had breakfast at A & A Restaurant and made a stop
at the bank. Now I'll go visit the Dollar Store and back
home to my little dogs, who always wag their tails,
not their tongues! I will make this short and sweet and
promise to do better next time, so until next week, may
the Lord take a liking to you.
So Says Miss Honey


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met June 26 at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Every day is a busy day
anymore. The wonderful garden is in and there is much
canning and freezing, along with tacking comforts.
Today quilting goes on, Goldie was back with us and
it's always so good to see her.
We also welcomed Sheriff Johnny Smith and Sgt.
Scott Finnen, who had lunch with us. It's always good
to have visitors and we also like to feed them.
Lunch was great as we are enjoying Martha Asbell's
wonderful garden fried okra, eggplant cooked with
peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic, yard long beans
with potatoes, beets, banana bread and ice cream.

Springhouse atuEiters

The first two sessions of the 4-H Sewing Camp
have just ended with the third and final week for
intermediate students planned for the third week in
July. Elaine Faison and volunteers from Springhouse
host the camp each summer to help train and teach
young people sewing and quilting.
The first session was a group of 15 young people
between the ages of 8 and 13 with 4 boys and 11 girls.
They had never been exposed to a sewing machine.
Within the first hour of the first day, all 15 of these
young people had the machines humming a wonderful
tune. They have to first learn the machine, ihe name
of each part and its function, and the care of the
machines.These young people were able to complete
all of the planned projects during the 4-day camp.,
The second session of the Sewing Camp was a
smaller group of very advanced, older 4-H girls.
These ladies were making quilt blocks for a sampler
quilt. There were curves, points and seams that were
all made perfectly. Some of these advanced students
helped in the beginner session.
Summer is finally here but Springhouse members
are still very busy with their quilting projects and
meetings. The next regular meeting for Springhouse
will be on July 8, beginning at 9 a.m. for the day
group and at 6:45 p.m. for the night group.

20 July3,2008 AROUND LEVY COUNTY Levy County Journal


SROs strive to improve teen driving


Free class focuses on distracted,

aggressive, and impaired driving.

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

First: illustrate the message with vividly clear visual aids accompanied by a warning.
"The following presentation contains graphic photographs and video clips ..."
Next: throw in some very unsettling statistics about teen drivers to go along with the
horrific pictures. In 2005, Levy County ranked number two in the state for the number
ofteen-involved traffic crashes in counties with less than 50,000 people. In the U.S.,
45 percent of teen drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes have a youth passenger with
them.
Finally: put the teen drivers behind the wheel, give them a cell phone, make them
impaired, and see how well they do. Okay, the steering wheel only belongs to a golf
cart. And the impairment is in the form of beer-goggles called "Drunk Busters." But the
idea is to argive student drivers a first hand glimpse at the dangers they face when poor-- .
choices are made.
"This is not sensationalism," said Instructor Dep. Grant Sandlin during a class last
week, as shocking photographs of crash-scene aftermath are projected on the wall for
13 soon-to-be teen drivers. "This is reality. This is what we see when we arrive on the _
scene of an accident."
Sandlin, School Resource Officer for Williston, and the other SROs in the county are
working hard to improve teen driving by teaching students about the dangers they can
avoid by making responsible decisions.Mr
The Teen Driver Improvement Program focuses on four key elements: distracted | .
driving, aggressive driving, driving while impaired, and the importance of proper
seatbelt use.
"Driving a car in and of itself requires multitasking," Sandlin said to students during
the four-hour class. "Human beings can multitask only to a certain level. When you start
adding in more things, you lower the human body's capacity to function."
At Sandlin's request, students rattled off the many distractions drivers face every day: .. : ..
cell phones, eating, music, makeup, and friends. .
Aggressive driving is not only dangerous when you are the one driving aggressively,
Sandlin told the students, but also when you do things to cause others to drive A Bronson High School student crushes a cone while attempting to drive and
aggressively. He said that when a car is following too closely behind you, the worst talk on a cell phone.
thing you can do is "break check" (slam on the breaks) or not allow the car to pass by
speeding up as soon as they attempt to go around.
Impaired driving is defined as anything you put in your body that impairs it. The
obvious things, Sandlin said, are alcohol and illicit drugs, but many things can impair
your ability to drive. "It could be that you drank too many Red Bulls and got the
shakes," he said. This comment was met with many surprised looks, followed by quick
recognition from students who have grown up in an energy-drink-loving generation.
During the classroom presentation, students are shown videos, some real-life, some
simulated, to illustrate the importance of correct seatbelt usage.
"The videos were really intense," said 15-year-old Ryan McClendon. "They show
what could actually happen on the road." SHERIFF
Twenty-nine percent of people not wearing seatbelts are ejected during a crash.
Ejections result in more deaths 63 percent than any other cause of fatalities from .. .
rollover accidents. You are 25 times more likely to die in a crash if you get thrown out. ..
"A seatbelt, when worn properly, can save yi6ir life," Sandlin said.
The hands-on component gives students a clear picture of the dangers they face while
on the road, and how the choices they make can have disastrous effects.
"I didn't think it would be that hard to drive with distractions," said Shelby LaPlante,
who turned 16 last week. "It's a lot more confusing."
"It opens your eyes and shows.you what could happen," said Tim Wonderly, also 16.
"I hit just about every cone on the course," he said with a sheepish grin. The soon-to- Alex Bauder crushes a cone while wearing "drunk busters" goggles.
be eleventh-grader said he enjoyed the hands-on driving experience and the interaction l :--
with the officers. "It's fun keeps it interesting and memorable." : : -,
Students are encouraged to invite friends with them to attend the class. "The groupirP
that's going to be out driving together needs to take the class together," said Sgt. Max
Long, SRO for Hilltop Academy. -.,
The program is offered free of charge to all Ievy County students who are currently ..
driving or about to start. Upon completing the course, students receive a wallet-sized '
certificate that parents can use for auto-insurance discounts. Some schools offer '--
discounted parking permits to program participants, and students also are eligible for R..w
four community service hours toward their Bright Futures Scholarship requirements. .--"-
The class will continue to be taught throughout the summer and possibly during the .,
school year if the demand is high enough, Sandlin said. A normal view of the course.
"At least one student in every class seems to get that spark where you can see the
light bulb turn on," Sandlin said after the class. "It's worth it every time even to reach .
just one student."

Teen-Driver Improvement Classes will be held at the following locations on the dates
indicated. All classes run from 8 a.m. to noon. .
At Chiefland High School: July 7, 8, Aug. 1, 4, 7, and 8. At Williston High School: '.
July 1,-2, 14, 28 and Aug. 5. At Bronson High School: July 10, 31, Aug. 5 and 6. At
Cedar Key School: July 30. At Yankeetown School: July 11. .' "
Parent waivers are required due to graphic content. For more information, contact Lt.
Sean Mullins or Sgt. Max Long at (352) 486-5111, Ext. 278.
