Sheriff's race focuses on 2004 firing


Smith: Trust, loyalty the main issues

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Sheriff Johnny Smith tells a different version of the Bobby McCallum
firing in 2004, one that focuses on the factors that he felt left him no choice
but to terminate his third in command.
He agrees it happened during a roadside
meeting two days after the 2004 election,
but he said he felt McCallum was not loyal
to him and he couldn't let him stay.
He said McCallum had not helped him
in the campaign that year and he knew his
third in command had not supported his re-
election bid. That fact alone was painful, he
said.
"It did hurt. I just didn't get the support
of my number three man. I thought I was
entitled. But it was a management decision.
We had different philosophies," Smith said.
"The bottom line is everyone has to be on the Smith
same page."
Smith said it is true he talked to McCallum 90 minutes before the
firing and told him he wanted him to stay, but he said he realized 15 to
20 minutes later he couldn't live with that decision and told his secretary

McCallum: 'It was political'

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Sheriff's candidate Bobby McCallum worked as the number three man
for Sheriff Johnny Smith until two days after the 2004 election. That's
when he was terminated during a roadside
conversation.
McCallum said he had just talked to
the sheriff 90 minutes earlier and Smith
indicated he needed him for another term,
but then Smith called him on his cell phone,
asking for a meeting. McCallum was in his
vehicle. He met Smith near the Catholic
Church on U.S. 27A.
McCallum said the sheriff fired him. The
firing has cost him $278,000 in retirement
income.
"It was political," McCallum said.

Getting Buried McCallum
McCallum had been "buried" two days earlier on election night in a
mock graveyard near the central shopping center in Chiefland. He said a
political sign belonging to Brett Beauchamp, Smith's Republican opponent
in the 2004 election, and now a supporter of McCallum, was used for the

Good Samaritans


rescue toddler

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A Trenton toddler fell in the surf and might have drowned
Friday at the Cedar Key Clamerica Celebration if not for
the heroics of two strangers, Cedar Key police said.
Jose A. Tovar rushed into the surf and carried 2 V2-
year-old Joseph Munar to the beach. Kevin McKendvee
of Brooksville performed CPR until the unconscious boy
began breathing again.
"Within a few seconds I heard the boy coughing up the
water, and then he started screaming and crying, which
was good," said Cedar Key Cpl. Eddie Merritt.
Merritt said the child's parents, Gregory and Wendy
Munar of Trenton, were at City Park enjoying a day on
the beach with five children, among them young Joseph.
Wendy Munar was supervising the children when the
incident occurred at about 5:50 p.m.
"He tripped or stepped in a hole and fell face first into the
water," Merritt said. The child was in knee deep water.
The child was flown by Shandscair helicopter to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville.
Merritt said a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission officer and three Cedar Key police officers
were on the scene within two minutes of receiving the call,
but the two strangers were already working to save the
child by that time.
"The first one carried him to land and the second one
(McKendvee) took over," Merritt said. "They were Good
Samaritans."


Trespassing charge latest in Chiefland postal dispute


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

The dispute involving a pair of suspended
employees of the Chiefland Post Office
took a new turn Tuesday with trespassing
charges filed against a family member of
one of the two.
James George, the husband of Bonnie
George, received a citation by Chiefland
Police Officer Alton Home shortly before
noon, along with a warning that he risked
being arrested if he returned to the property.
James George had apparently approached
the counter inside the building to buy a
single stamp when postal officials called
the police.
Bonnie George, along with Debbie
Hamberger, were suspended in late May as
a result of an ongoing investigation by the
Postal Service.
Chiefland Postmaster Lisa Fletcher
declined to comment on Tuesday's
developments, citing organizational policy
regarding ongoing investigations. The
Chiefland Police Department declined
comment as well.


The Georges, however, had plenty to
offer.
Bonnie George said she and her husband
were simply following the guidelines given
to them by postal officials in the wake of
the dispute.
"I went in to get the mail like I am
instructed to do and walked outside," she
said. "My husband went to buy a stamp,
because I am not allowed to go to the front
counter. Then they called the Chiefland
Police Department. For trespassing."
She added that the new warning to stay
away from the property will present a
problem for her family. They currently live
in Otter Springs, but have plans to move to
Chiefland.
"This is where we have our mailbox, and
I am not changing it," she said. "I plan on
moving to Chiefland. I am building a house
here. I am going to do my business at the
Chiefland Post Office. It will not be much,
because I want to do as little as possible
with the Postal Service.
"My husband has been nothing but polite.

A burst of fireworks explode over Williston Horseman's Park July 3, part of
Independence Day celebrations there. The day began late, with the annual
4th of July Parade down Main Street in Williston, and included plenty of

AROUND LEVY COUNTY


Levy County Journal


Smith, from Page 1

about his feelings.
"He Wasn't For Us"
He said he called McCallum who was in his car and asked him for his location.
McCallum said he was near the Catholic Church in Chiefland. Smith agreed to meet him
there.
Smith said they parked their cars next to one another, as law enforcement officers often
do in roadside conversations, and he told him he couldn't trust him anymore.
The sheriff said "McCallum responded, 'If you don't trust me, I don't need to be there.'
I nodded my head, and that's all there was to it."
Smith said his upper management people need to be part of his team and they have
to carry out the mission of the department as the sheriff sees it. But he said it was clear
McCallum was not part of the team.
"He wasn't for us," Smith said.
Smith said he knew nothing about McCallum's political burial on election night.
Smith, 47, and his wife, Marcia Asbell Smith, have one son, Landon, who is 12.

Entire Career In Levy
Smith has spent most of his 26-year career working for the Levy County Sheriff's
Office.
Smith has no college education, but graduated from the Santa Fe College Police
Academy. He is also a graduate of the FBI Academy, 109th session.
He started in law enforcement as a patrol officer in 1982 at the Chiefland Police
Department. He worked there for several months before moving to the Williston Police
Department. He worked at the Williston Police Department for several years before
leaving in the mid 1980s.
"I've been with the Levy County Sheriff's Office ever since," he said.
He was elected to his first term as sheriff in 2001.
"It's been extremely rewarding. It's been a humbling experience and I've been truly
honored that the citizens of Levy County would elect me as their sheriff," he said. "I take
my job to heart. It humbles me to no end that the people have trusted me to do the business
of the sheriff."
Pleased With Audit
Smith said he is very pleased with the final audit of the 2007 sheriff's budget, which
was released last week. He
said the audit contained "As sheriff, I have the responsibility to
six findings and pointed A
out a couple of internal ensure I have qualified people to run
control issues that have been the divisions. "
corrected.
"We've got a good finance Johnny Smith
department. What we were
lacking was training for our ladies, and we've done that," he said.
He said Sharon Brannen, a certified public accountant, has been hired to come in once
every month or two to make sure everything is on track.
Contrary to McCallum's claims, Smith said the sheriff's office will not lose any federal
grants, or have to repay any federal grants as a result of the audit findings.
"There's no money missing. Everything's accounted for," he said.
Responding to a different criticism, he said it's true he got rid of his K-9 team when he
took office in 2001. He said the dogs were not top quality and he wanted to start out fresh.
He said the dogs in the K-9 program now are top-notch animals trained in Europe.
"We have one of the best K-9 programs in the state and it's because we went back and
revamped it," he said.
Buying SUVs .. n ,-on:i
Smith also responded to the allegation that he wasted money purchasing SUiVNs rtis
executive staff. During the 2004 hurricanes, Smith said he learned a valuable lesson when
he couldn't reach people stranded in their homes. He said he promised himself it would
never happen again. He bought nine, four-wheel drive SUVs to give his deputies greater
ability to respond in emergencies. The nine SUVs are part of his 76-vehicle fleet at the
sheriff's office.
The SUVs were purchased under state bid contract. The last one went to Lt. Evan
Sullivan, the department's communication officer, and was purchased for $24,000. Smith
said that's probably comparable to what he would pay for a Ford Crown Victoria. A
dealership with the state bid contract can take advantage of volume sales to offer lower
prices.
He said there was no truth to McCallum's allegation that sheriff's office SUVs were
used by deputies to go hunting.
Smith produced statistics showing sheriff's offices in counties of similar size or
smaller, particularly rural counties with many miles of dirt roads, tend to buy the most
SUVs. Baker County, with a population of 25,203, has 16 SUVs; DeSoto County, with a
population of 35,315, has 12 SUVs and seven trucks. Sumter County, with a population
of 68,768, owns 17 SUVs; and Wakulla County, with a population of 29,542, owns 15
SUVs.
Inmate Revenue
Regarding McCallum's assertion that Smith doesn't make good use of federal inmates
as a revenue source to pay back jail construction debt, the sheriff's office said the jail
collected $293,006.63 in revenue from housing Sumter County inmates in fiscal 2006-07.
The sheriff's office collected $154,527.26 the same year from housing federal inmates.
That total was nearly a half million dollars.
In the current fiscal year, the sheriff's office has collected $160,200 in revenues from
housing Sumter County inmates and $98,524.17 from housing federal inmates. The fiscal
year will end Sept. 30.
Concerning the DROP program, Smith said Capt. Danny Riffle, who heads criminal
investigations, Major Mike Johnson who is second in command, Sgt. Herman Allen in
patrol and Capt. Gary Sache, who heads patrol, are in the DROP program. Smith said he
has quite a few promising young officers in his department, but he believes these seasoned
veterans are needed to give the young troops the type of leadership that will help them
grow as law enforcement officers.
"As sheriff, I have the responsibility to ensure I have qualified people to run the
divisions," Smith said.
Riffle has 30 years experience with the department in all phases of criminal
investigations, from drugs to theft and murder, Smith said.
"I simply don't have anyone yet that I want in charge of criminal investigations except
Danny Riffle," Smith said, using Riffle as an example. "I have a responsibility to the
citizens to have the very best people handling these cases. You need your seasoned people
there. Because of that, I have allowed some of my seasoned people to come back. Right
now, I need the people I have asked to stay."

headstone.
Political graves are reserved primarily for the losers of elections in Chiefland grave
diggings.
McCallum said he believes the gravediggers knew he was going to be fired on the
night of the election. McCallum still has Beauchamp's political sign and a second sign the
gravediggers used, in his garage.
McCallum said the sheriff should have authority to fire people, but he said Smith later
pressed the state legislature to pass a career service act protecting upper management in
sheriff's offices.
"They should be protected from firing for political reasons. I was fired for political
reasons and not even legitimate political reasons," he said. "On the other hand, upper
management needs to do their jobs to keep their jobs."

Providing Public Safety
McCallum, 61, said his primary reason for running is to provide public safety for the
citizens of Levy County. He said if a resident is unfortunate enough to be the victim of a
crime, he said the sheriff's office under his command would investigate thoroughly, and
"no stone will be left unturned."
McCallum holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida and
a Master's Degree in criminal justice from Nova University. He is a graduate of the
National Sheriff's Institute
in Los Angeles, California. upper management needs to do
McCallum is just a month "
shy of having 30 years in their jobs to keep their jobs.
law enforcement. His wife,
Kandy, owns a cosmetology Bobby McCallum
business. McCallum has two
daughters. Beverly is a federal prosecutor in Guam. Beverly's husband, Jason Lemily, is
a career Marine, which explains why she is in Guam to be near him. His other daughter,
Jennifer Langston, is a state attorney's investigator. He also has two stepsons, Bailey and
Dalton Pitts.
He began his law enforcement career under former Sheriff Pat Hartley as a jailer and
dispatcher in the old jail attached to the courthouse. He worked for the Florida Highway
Patrol for seven years after that, five years as a trooper. McCallum then worked as a
patrolman and later a sergeant in charge of the school resource program under former
Sheriff Horace Moody. He was promoted to chief deputy under Moody. He became
an investigator for State Attorney Eugene Whitworth. When Whitworth died in office,
he worked under State Attorney Len Register and was promoted to executive director.
He worked under former Sheriff Ted Glass as a major and director of law enforcement.
Smith beat Glass in the 2000 election and Smith hired McCallum in 2001 as director of
administration and operations. He operated Bar-B-Que Bill's Restaurant in Chiefland for
three years after the firing.

Criticizing Spending Practices
His chief criticism of Smith relates to the sheriff's office budget. He said the county
is facing tough economic times and residents need a sheriff who is careful about how he
spends tax dollars.
"It's a big business and it needs a leader who understands the burden it places on the
taxpayers and citizens," he said.
He said the sheriff's office has received critical audits the past three years, the worst
being this year's audit. He said the sheriff hired a certified public accountant at taxpayer
expense to retrain his financial director, but he questions why the move wasn't made
earlier to stem the problems.
1McCallum said the sheriff's budget was $6.1 million when Smith was first elected in
2007lbut the buagefis right at $12-million now. McCallum said it took 100 years forfn
sheriff's office to reach the $6.1 million, but Smith doubled it in seven years. He said he
doesn't think residents are getting a good return on their tax dollars.
He cited Smith's decision to purchase nine sport utility vehicles for his executive staff
as a waste of money, noting the vehicles are more expensive than cars and use more
fuel.

SUVs and Personal-Use
"They drive them outside the county, to their homes, to eat lunch. They drive them to
hunting camp. You've got to pay attention to that kind of stuff," McCallum said. "It leads
to morale problems with the staff."
McCallum said the sheriff has allowed too many veteran officers to come back to work
for him under a program that allows senior staff to draw retirement pay while continuing
to draw full pay as an employee. The program is known as Deferred Retirement Optiori
Program or DROP.
"Some people call it double dipping," McCallum said. "What this does is create a
morale problem for the rank and file people. They work hard, but they have no chance for
advancement. It creates a morale issue and that trickles down to delivery of services to
the people," he said.
He said he would allow DROP employees to work for him, but they could draw only
entry level pay and retirement income at the same time.
McCallum also believes the jail is not making good use of federal prisoners to generate
revenue. When federal inmates or inmates from other counties are housed at the jail the
county receives a fee. McCallum said when the county built the jail, he supported the
expansion, but wanted the county to take maximum advantage of federal inmate revenue
to pay back the debt. He said Smith probably generates $200,000 to $300,000 in inmate
revenue annually, but that's less than he should generate.

Audit Criticism
He was also critical of Smith for asking for a $2.5 million increase in his budget this
year then blaming the request on his staff. He reduced the request to $1.5 million, but is
now asking for an increase.
"This year's budget is so terrible its release has been delayed. They're trying to rework
it. There are federal grants in jeopardy for the entire county," he said.
McCallum also said Smith got rid of his K-9 dog drug unit when he first took over
as sheriff, but then a year or so later decided to bring them back. And he got rid of the
helicopter to reduce costs, but McCallum said he hasn't reduced costs. The budget has
grown by $6 million since he took office.
McCallum did say that if he were elected, he would not attempt to bring back the
helicopter at this time due to cost considerations. He said he was using the helicopter as
an example of how the budget has increased in size despite Smith's claims that he got rid
of the helicopter to save on costs.
"There is much waste in the sheriff's office," McCallum said.

Otter Creek sterilizes



its feral cat population


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Otter Creek Town Hall is used for a lot
of different things, so it wasn't a big deal
last week when the building was converted
to a temporary surgical cat house.
The Levy County Humane Society used
the town council meeting room to house
39 caged feral cats before the animals
were spayed or neutered in a mobile clinic
outside. The cats were kept in the council
chambers for three days after surgery to
recover. They were then released.
Otter Creek, a town of between 129 to
150 residents, wants to sterilize its feral
cat population to curb reproduction. The
cats are a mixed blessing.
"Just in the middle of town, in that
little swamp, there's 15 to 20 cats," said
Mayor Cleah Martin. "They keep the rats
and snakes down. We just don't need
more of them."
Kathy Fletcher, treasurer of the Humane
Society and an Ocala veterinarian, said a
$20,000 state grant generated through the
sale of license plates was used to sterilize
the cats. The people of Otter Creek trapped
the cats and brought them to Town Hall.
Half of the grant money was used to
spay, neuter and release cats, with the
other half spent on sterilizing the cats
of low-income people. The River City
Community Animal Hospital's mobile
spay and neuter clinic was brought from
Jacksonville to Otter Creek. Dr. Pat
Gionet handled the surgeries in a rear
surgical suite.


The cats were put to sleep and tied
down on a surgical bed at the back of
the mobile clinic. When the surgery was
completed, the cats were carried back to
the Town Hall council meeting room to
let the anesthesia wear off.
Martin said the sterilization program
resulted in a high number of feral cats
being captured, but she said just as many
remain in the community that haven't
been spayed or neutered. She said the
town seems to be a favorite drop area for
unwanted pet dogs and cats.
A colony of spayed and neutered cats
can keep the feral cat population down,
Fletcher said. She said the sterilized cats
will continue to defend their turf against
intruders and they will prevent new cats
from coming into the community. They
keep out the rats, reducing the possibility
of transmitting disease. The opposite is
true if all the cats are killed.
"If you were to wipe out the colony,
within a year there will be a whole new
colony that takes its place," she said.
Martin said she heard about entire
colonies of feral cats being poisoned in
the town of Inglis and in Gulf Hammock.
She said the town of Otter Creek doesn't
want to use that method.
She chuckled about seeing all the tables
covered with cat cages. She said Town
Hall is used for town council meetings.
It's also the site of the fire station and
town library.
"Usually these tables that are holding
cats are holding microphones and paper,"
she said.

Postal, from Page 1

This is an abuse of power, and now they have involved the
Chiefland Police Department."
James George said he was given an option by Home.
"I asked how I get my mail, and he hands me this a
change of address form," James George said. "Where does
he want me to change my address to? Tallahassee? How far
do they want me to drive to get my mail?"
Bonnie George, who worked at the Post Office for 12
years, said there is little precedent for filing trespassing
charges against her family. She spoke of a customer who
displayed unruly behavior in the facility for months without
consequence.
"We had a customer who gave us problems," she said.
"We could not close her box and make her move her P.O.
box, no matter what she did. She came up and yelled and
cussed at us, and we could not do anything. We finally got
to the point that each clerk refused to do business with her
because she was so abusive. The postmaster would have to
come up and take care of her.
"And now they can do this to me when we have done
nothing wrong? This is still under investigation. I have not
been proven guilty of anything."
Both Georges said they planned to be back on private
property across from the post office Wednesday, the same
spot where they protested and collected signatures on a
petition a week ago.
"I am going to do something, because this is ridiculous,"
she said. "The Chiefland Post Office is abusing power.
People have got to stop. Somebody has got to stop this."

Universal healthcare


By Rick Burnham
Editor

On the surface, universal healthcare seems
like a very good idea. There are no doubt
many people across our great land who
need it but cannot afford it. For many, it is a
life-or-death situation.
But it didn't have to be this way.
Not so long ago, healthcare, like gasoline, was reasonably
priced in America. Then came the era of frivolous lawsuits
involving healthcare providers, and things changed
dramatically. Insurance became a necessity for physicians,
and insurance companies, forced to pay outrageous
settlements by an out-of-control judicial system, had little
choice but to jack up premiums.
And it trickled down to you and me.
Health care is now so expensive that the cost of health
care insurance has leaped out of reach for many.
The current reaction by left-leaning politicians across
the country would be quite humorous if the situation were
not so dire. The same people screaming for nationwide
healthcare for all are the same ones Kennedy, Clinton,
and the rest of the Democratic Party who championed
those huge lawsuits decades ago. Now they, along with
Barack Obama, insist that those without a healthcare plan
must be taken care of. They want to correct one mistake
with an even bigger one.
When implemented, the cost is going to trickle down to
you and me. Only it won't be a trickle.
If the cost of universal health care were the only issue, it
would almost be worth it. Who among us is not willing to


pay a little extra to make sure those in need are taken care
of? The cost of universal health care, though, is just the tip
of the iceberg.
I Googled "universal health care" and came across
numerous blogs and message boards discussing some
of the ups and downs of nationwide systems in other
countries. Many say their country's programs work great
in the beginning. People who get sick are cared for in a
timely and courteous manner, and all is right in the world.
But then the system begins to bog down under the
pressure of an enormous workload. Families consistently
jam emergency rooms with runny noses and skinned
knees. Upset stomachs take up precious medical resources,
as do headaches and sore throats. Soon, the wait to get
an appointment is weeks down the road. Months. And
that is before we grant citizenship to 20 million illegal
immigrants.
Abort.
Only we won't be able to abort, because we will have
already made the commitment to give every man, woman
and child government healthcare. So we raise taxes to
accommodate the stress on the system, and the $500 a year
extra you are paying for the initial program becomes $750
a year. And then $1,000 a year.
But wait. There's more. Want to see U.S. Government
healthcare in action? There is a government hospital less
than an hour a way, in Gainesville.
I gained access to the Veterans Administration system
by serving my country in the U.S. Air Force for 22 years.
Given the chance, I would gladly do it again. It was a great
experience every single minute of it. ,
But my experiences dealing with the VA Hospital in


= bad idea


Gainesville have been frightening. The young woman
at the registration desk there took my information and
proceeded to disappear for 45 minutes. Gone. Another
man, having had his name inadvertently skipped, was told
he was "next." The person who told him that then went to
lunch. He was still sitting there waiting when she returned
an hour later. Your tax dollars, hard at work.
I was told to go have lab work done, and that the closest
lab might not be open.
"Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't," the nurse said. It
wasn't. So I went to the main lab, and found half a dozen
technicians sitting around laughing and joking like they
didn't have a care in the world. Kicking back, on my dollar.
On your dollar.
Remember "Hee Haw?" Remember the scene where
they are all just lying around, slack-jawed and motionless?
That is what the lab technicians looked like.
Speaking of dollars, any idea how the government
procures equipment and supplies to take care of its
business? It's a little system called "the lowest bidder,"
and it works great for getting someone to mow your grass,
perhaps change the oil in your car. Maybe provide cable
TV.
But not healthcare.
Try this scenario on for size. When universal health care
is implemented, the equipment and drugs used to save your
life, or assist in the birth of your child, or to perform triple
bypass surgery for one of your parents, were provided to
the government by the lowest possible bidder.
Chances are very good that universal healthcare is not
going to be the Godsend many claim it will be.
Want change? Careful what you ask for.


Byrd announces

for District 5

My name is Cal Byrd, and I am announcing my
candidacy for the District 5 seat on Levy County
Commission.
I am a Williston City Councilman (25 years). I
am a member of the Airport Committee and City
Pension Board. I oversee the utilities department.
I am concerned about people who are starting
small businesses or building homes. I contend there
is too much regulation. I attribute that to a lack of
contact between county officials and citizens.
I would strive to make county offices more "user
friendly" to the needs of citizens.
Fiscal responsibility is a big consideration.
There is additional revenue flowing into the county
because of the reappraisal of properties and I am
concerned about how it's being used. The citizens
passed Amendment One and feel they are being
"taxed to death".
I believe that my experience in city government
would serve me well on the commission. I'm
familiar with budgeting and the planning it takes
to stay within the budget. I have an often-pivotal
role in council decisions, where often I'm the voice
of moderation. I would expect to serve the same
function on the commission.

The high price of gasoline



continues to keep me awake


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

For those of you wondering if I still have my
dander up about $4 gasoline, the answer
is I do. I must say that watching people
suffer financial stress from hyper-inflated
gasoline prices hasn't changed my mind. It doesn't
help when I have to pay 50 bucks for a tank of gas.
The people who are suffering most are those on
fixed incomes, such, as. Social, Seourity ,recipients-and
the elderly. Those, folks were barely, making ends rl:,:-
meet when gas was at $2 per gallon. In the past three
months, the oil barons and Wall Street speculators
have joined hands to raise the price of gasoline to
$4.10 per gallon. The economic suffering has risen to
barbaric levels for those on fixed incomes.
Rising gasoline prices have much the same effect
on the economy as high interest rates on loans. When
former President Jimmy Carter and his economic
advisors raised interest rates to 18 percent in the early
1980s, the cost of everything rose sharply and the
housing market plunged, much like it'has in the past
year. That's because high interest rates increase the
cost of doing business. Businesses must borrow money
to exist. High gasoline prices create the same problem.
It costs more to transport goods to market when diesel
fuel costs $4.70 per gallon. It also costs more to drive
to the grocery store to buy food. The food is more
costly because it was transported with high priced
diesel. Many ,businesses are failing because of high
fuel costs.
Over the weekend, I was waiting for my oil to
be changed at a local business when two aging
grandmas walked past me pushing a buggy. They
were sweethearts and genuinely polite. I noticed them
because while I daydreamed, I accidentally blocked
their path to the counter. I jumped out of the way as
soon as I saw my mistake. One of them asked the clerk
if she could add $20 to her purchase to get some cash
back. She was paying with a check. The cashier told
her it was okay.
I could tell that adding $20 to her tab was a
carefully thought out decision. She is in an age group
that is no longer working for a living. Many older
Americans are living on fixed incomes and they can
no longer afford to fill their gas tanks. But they have
to fill the tanks, just the same. For some, it means
sacrifices. Something has to be sacrificed to pay for
the additional cost of fuel. When the winter comes,
their electric bills will be higher because of rising fuel
costs.
I was talking to one of my family members
Saturday via cell phone about gasoline prices when
he pointed out the dishonest reporting on the national
television news programs about gas prices. He said
"teevee" commentators and economists or talking
heads as I call them pretend there is no economic
crisis resulting from the high gas prices. They act as
though gas prices should be at $4 per gallon or higher.
They ignore the enormous hardships for the, average
American. He was flabbergasted by the media's
reporting.
Later that day, I was watching CNN when a
sophisticated public relations advertisement from
Exxon Mobile Corporation appeared. The conclusions
I drew from the ad were that God created the oil
companies to make people happy, and as a result of
their enormous wealth, power and influence, they are
a blessing for all of us. I felt SO much better knowing


CNN is raking in millions of advertising dollars from
the very oil companies that are taking in billions in
profits from the pockets of Americans like me. No
wonder the reporting is so "objective."
It amazes me that no one in Congress has
introduced a bill to control unregulated speculation on
oil futures on Wall Street, a practice that has inflated
oil and gasoline prices. It also seems rather amazing to
me that the Democrats who control the U.S. House of
Representatives and the U.S. Senate (by thin margins,
!mind-you) ha din't at least attempted to cap g'~6line
:and diesel prices at the pump. I think $2 per gallon is a
nice round number. Humor me, if nothing else.
If Democrats are waiting until after the November
election to act on oil and gasoline prices, they may
find themselves out of their jobs come December.
They may find a Republican Congress back in control
after the election. But then again, Republicans are
doing just as little. They no longer control Congress
and they have thrown up their hands claiming the
Democrats are standing in the way of oil drilling in the
Arctic and Gulf of Mexico. The Democrats note that
Republicans have blocked their attempts to implement
a windfall profits tax and other measures to control
oil companies. Meanwhile, the economy acts like it's
going through chemotherapy.
It seems rather ludicrous to me that members of
Congress would be willing to wait for November's
elections to determine which party will survive to
enact their political agenda. What's wrong with acting
on $4 gas before the elections? What's wrong with
taking bold and decisive moves to wipe out corporate
greed and bring oil prices in the United States back to
a sane level before elections take place? What's wrong
with establishing a long-range plan this summer to
wean the economy from foreign oil?
Here is a hypothetical. Maybe I'm dreaming.
Could the government establish hydrogen and electric
car refueling areas at every gasoline station in the
United States, assuming the stations have space, and
at no charge to gas station owners? It seems rather
ridiculous to me that Detroit and Japan are developing
all these high tech hydrogen and electric cars that have
no place for refueling on local roads or the interstate.
Or am I missing something here?
I don't think we can ever retool our transportation
system until we begin to realize that people would
need to refuel their high-tech vehicles wherever they
drive. And gas station owners won't be able to afford
to make the technological changes on their own,
assuming they have the space for new technologies.
The government would probably have to do it for
them. If we can afford to spend $5 billion a week on
the Iraq war, maybe we can spare a few billion dollars
at home on common sense solutions to the energy
crisis. And there IS a crisis.
Are we ready for such technological changes? I
doubt it. The government has never talked about how
to retool our transportation system to wean us from
..,oil and gasoline. Will the next generation be tethered
to gas and oil vehicles that get a maximum of 35
miles per gallon? I saw a news show recently where a
gentleman claims he has developed a gasoline engine
that gets 110 miles to the gallon and has plenty of
power.
Or maybe, gasoline prices will magically drop to $2
per gallon, just in time for the political season. Timing
is everything in life, you know.
I can't wait for $2 gas again.

A 'bigger blessing'


Local cancer survivor touts new procedure


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

The Spring of 2006 was to be a grand time for
Williston's Maralyn Trott.
Retirement beckoned following a 39-year career
teaching music, and, living along splendid green pastures
near the Levy and Marion County lines, the future looked
bright for she and husband Don.
But shortly before her last day as a teacher at Osceola
Middle School in Ocala, Trott found a small lump in one
of her breasts. An initial mammogram was inconclusive,
but a subsequent ultrasound confirmed the presence of a
tumor. A biopsy eventually confirmed the worst.
On July 19, 2006, Maralyn Trott learned she had breast
cancer.
Nearly two years later, she speaks of that day, and
of the initial conversation she had with her doctor. The
words were calming. Reassuring.
"She said 'Now Maralyn, this is not a death
sentence,'" Trott said. "Do not cancel your magazine
subscriptions."
Trott didn't, and soon learned of a new procedure
called "Mammosite," a targeted radiation therapy.
"During my consultation, I was given the option of a
mastectomy, or a lumpectomy," she said. "After deciding
on the lumpectomy, my surgeon informed me that I might
be a candidate for Mammosite 5-day targeted radiation
therapy."
The procedure, according to medical experts, employs
a small, soft balloon attached to a thin tube and placed
inside a lumpectomy cavity where the tumor has
already been removed. A tiny radioactive source a seed
- is placed within the balloon. Radiation is then directed
only to the area of the breast where cancer is most likely
to recur.
The treatment is administered twice a day for five days
- a far cry from the 35-day treatment alternative most


commonly associated with breast cancer.
"I found out I had cancer on July 19," she said. "I had
surgery Aug. 3, and by Labor Day, I was finished with
everything."
Trott said she kept her hair, and was spared much of
the trauma many women who suffer breast cancer go
through. She still must have periodic checkups, but has
thus far been given a clean bill of health from health care
providers.
In the meantime, she has become a volunteer
spokesperson for Mammosite, attempting to get. the word
out about a viable option for people with breast cancer.
Trott's surgeon, Jamie Daniel of the Central Florida
Breast Clinic, said many patients and many doctors as
well are not yet aware of the new procedure and the
advantages it has to offer.
"Information has not made it around," Daniel said.
"Physicians are always doing continued medical training,
but there is always a delay in procedures actually
being performed in practice. When new treatments
come out, everyone wants to see someone else do it
first. Unfortunately, that is how medicine has been for
some time. But now that Mammosite has Federal Drug
Administration approval and has been successful in
clinical trials, there is no reason for patients not to get the
appropriate treatment."
Not every patient is eligible for Mammosite. Each
must meet a number of qualifying factors age, the size
of the tumor, the absence of lymph node involvement,
among others before being given the treatment. If they
qualify, both Trott and her doctor recommend taking
advantage of a new and better technology.
"This was developed to have a more cosmetically-
pleasing result," Daniel said. "Patients have a much easier
recovery time."
"You do not have to have 35 days of radiation," Trott
whispers, her eyes welling up with tears.
She takes a moment to compose herself, and concludes


The new Mammosite procedure has proven to be a
blessing for Maralyn Trott of Williston.
with a beacon of hope for all breast cancer patients.
"Cancer was the worst thing I could ever imagine,"' she
says. "Now I am two years with a clean bill of health. You
can't ask for a bigger blessing."


County sets meeting,


public hearing on


nuclear power proposal

ByTerryWitt,..
Staff Writer


Progress Energy Florida is moving forward with planning efforts for two
proposed nuclear power plant reactors in southwest Levy County, and the
Levy County Commission is following a parallel track as it prepares for two
August meetings that deal with related issues.
Commissioners on Tuesday set a public information meeting for 7 p.m.
on Aug. 7 at the Levy County Courthouse to gather public input and take
questions from residents about the nuclear power proposal being made by
Progress Energy Florida.
The Levy County Planning Commission will meet at 6:30 p.m., Aug. 4
at the courthouse to consider Progress Energy Florida's request for a special
exception zoning change on the 3,105 acres it purchased for the reactors. The
commission will also hear PEF's request for a small scale comprehensive
plan amendment related to the project.
County commissioners will consider the special exception zoning change
at a public hearing in September. The exact date has not been set. If the
special exception is granted at the September hearing, it would give Progress
Energy the zoning approval it needs to build and operate the nuclear reactors
on the 3,105 acres of property it owns in southwest Levy County.
The Aug. 7 meeting is connected with Progress Energy Florida's decision
to file a site certification application with DEP on June 2. Site certification
is part of the Power Plant Siting Act. The PPSA gives local governments
affected by the proposed nuclear power plant the option of holding a public
informational meeting. County commissioners took advantage of that option
in scheduling the meeting.
Commissioners also granted a request by County Attorney Anne Bast
Browne to ask for an extension of the deadline to complete a state report on
whether the nuclear power proposal is consistent with the comprehensive
plan. If the special exception is granted, the project would be consistent
with the county's comprehensive plan.
In other business:
Browne said Circuit Court Judge David A. Glant has ruled with the
county and against White Construction's claims that it had the right to mine
limestone on a piece of its property in the Chiefland area. Glant ruled that
there was no evidence of mining activity before Jan. 22, 1975. He said any
mining was minimal and was an accessory use to agricultural activities.
Commissioners approved County Road Department Administrative
Superintendent Bruce Greenlee's recommendation to proceed with the
resurfacing and widening of County Road 343, even though the low bid and
engineering costs combined were higher than the low bid. The county will
use its own road work crews to widen the limerock base on the road, saving
the necessary funds to make the project possible. Commissioners agreed
with Greenlee it would be wasteful not to take advantage of a $2.6 million
Florida Department of Transportation grant that will pay for most of the
project. The road will be widened for bicycle traffic and resurfaced.
Commissioners approved a resolution to fund the widening and
resurfacing of County Road 32 with a Small County Outreach Program
grant from the state. CR 32 runs between Bronson High School and Bronson
Elementary School and connects U.S. 27A to State Road 24. The Florida
Department of Transportation has agreed to pay a maximum of $766,200
with the SCOP grant. The county will be responsible for any expenses
exceeding that figure. The road will be widened for bicycle traffic.

CRIME


SJuly 10, 2008


Levy County Journal


|lgU|U Use these tips to avoid the theft of your gasoline


Both nationally and locally, experts agree we are facing a significant
shift in the economy. When the economy moves into a slowdown,
residents have a tougher time meeting week-to-week and month-to-month
bills, therefore causing a rise in theft. The Levy County Sheriff's Office
has a zero tolerance for any crimes and if arrested for stealing fuel you
could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
According to the Petroleum Marketers Association of America in 2007,
there were about $134 million in gas theft in the United States, compared
to $120 million in 2006.
With the increasing price of fuel, gas and diesel theft is on the rise in the
United States. However, in Levy County I have not seen any significant
increase in gas or diesel thefts.
Perhaps you thought an old-fashioned siphon was the only way to steal
gasoline from a vehicle, but thieves have other ways of accessing your
gas tank. Many fuel tanks are equipped with rollover valves designed to


cut off the flow of fuel when the vehicle rolls over. These valves, which
are actually just small balls in the tank's neck, have the added effect of
blocking any siphoning tubes entering the tank. This has forced some
thieves into cutting into the tank itself. Not all gasoline thieves are drilling
tank holes. Some are cutting into the fuel filler tube, which on some cars,
runs along the underside of the vehicle.
Below are some tips to prevent fuel thefts:
Purchase a gas cap lock, which costs between $10-20.
Park in well-lit parking garages that have security cameras.
Park your vehicle in your garage.
Install motion-sensitive security lights at your house.
Report any suspicious persons) or activity.
Don't allow customers to pump prior to paying at retail stores.
Invest in good quality locks on farm fuel tanks and equipment.


Chase leads sheriff's

A Bronson man eluded a sheriff's deputy in a high-speed
chase late Saturday night that ended when he crashed into
a wooden fence in a field and ran away on foot. He was
later caught when he reported his vehicle stolen.
The deputy who chased 28-year-old Charles Smith said
he recognized him when he pulled alongside the running
suspect in the field. He received confirmation when he ran
the tag of the vehicle the suspect had been driving and
found it was registered to Smith.
Smith was arrested on charges of fleeing and attempting
to elude and resisting arrest without violence. He was held
without bond.

This year as in many years past, Nobel Avenue in Williston was blobk
as thousands of spectators lined both sides of the road for the annual .4th c
Parade.
The combined groups of various law enforcement agencies began they
with sirens blaring. The Williston High School Marching Band led off this,
parade playing "Red, White and Blue." Band Director Al vin Johnson also m-
with the band playing the trumpet.
With many cities in Florida canceling parades and fireworks displays, thi
due to financial reasons and tightened budgets, the City of Williston hac
celebration as always.
City Finance Director Mark Schiefer said, "The cost of the fire works ha:
budgeted by the City of Williston for the past 35 years, and 1 wouldn't think
something they would drop now or in the years to come.
"The cost of the fireworks is $8,500. They are purchased from Skylig
Florida, a company in Ocala that has put on the fireworks show the pa&
years."

The Independence Day Celebration is a shared event between the City of

Schiefer went on to say he could not give enough credit to Mary Kline and
ed off Crystal Curl, who put in a lot of voluntary time, starting way back in October, in
f July organizing the parade and fireworks.
"Without the hard work and dedication of these two volunteers I don't think
)arade this event could happen each year so smoothly," Schiefer said.
year's Curl said the event is a team effort.
arched "There have been several volunteers that have been very helpful this year -
City Council President Debra Jones, Sharon Brannan, Cal Byrd, and Earl Ogle,"
s year she said while while hard at work at the Horseman's Park getting the pavilion
their ready for the evening's entertainment. The park was lined with some 57 different
vendors for those who arrived early for the fireworks celebration to patronize and
Been enjoy.
this is The City of Williston once again celebrated our nation's birthday with a parade
of nearly one hundred participants and a tremendous fireworks display.
hts of It was an evening of city and community pride, that as a community we took
t five a little time to not only celebrate our great country, but to remember the heroes
serving and fighting yet today for our freedoms.

Bronson honors

Bo Diddley

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

The Town of Bronson unanimously passed
a motion Tuesday renaming the town's park
to honor the rock 'n' roll legend Bo Diddley,
who passed away last month at his home in
nearby Archer. He was 79.
"The Bo Diddley Memorial Park"
will commemorate the music pioneer's
contributions to the area, according to Mayor
Franklin Schuler. "He had an Archer address,
but he lived closer to Bronson. He has a lot of
family here and he was buried in the cemetery
here."
The idea to name the park after Diddley
came to Schuler as he watched nearby towns
consider creating a holiday in his name.
"People were trying to decide on a day,
but they didn't know if they should pick the
day he died or his birthday or what," he said.
"This way we can pay tribute in a different
way."
The park is home to the Bronson Youth
League, where many of Diddley's relatives
have participated in the sports programs, both
as youth-participants as well as volunteers.
BYL's current president, Garry Mitchell, is
Diddley's grandson. Mitchell was unavailable
for comment on the park's new name.

High school sports seasons

should never overlap

By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor


Small towns with small 6,~J
high schools usually (7
have a small number of
students to pick their sports teams from.
Not every student participates in sports. There are those
who enjoy playing a musical instrument and join the band.
There are those students who choose to become R.O.T.C.
recruits. You always have those students who work either


.1.


on the family farm or ranch, and there is always a small
number that chose to get a part-time job after school.
The numbers of athletes, for obvious reasons, become
much smaller in a small school. And we certainly don't
want to forget those athletes who for whatever reason Steve Jarboe
choose to attend one of the area private schools. Sports Editor
Small schools generally end up with several student athletes participating in
more than one of the major sports (football, basketball and baseball). Sometimes
all three. For the young ladies the three main sports are volleyball, basketball, and
softball.
This brings me to my subject for this week. The scheduling of games and the
start of each particular sports season should be looked at more closely.
In Levy County there are some very good teams at the high school level and one
of the high schools has won a district championship or runnerup spot for the last
several years in football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and softball.
The athletes who choose to play more than one sport for their high school are
generally a starter on each team they play on.
However the seasons usually overlap due to the playoffs. The sport starting is
forced to hold their practices and even start their regular season games without,
in some cases, their best players. Depending on how far into the playoffs the first
team goes, it can be three or four weeks. This puts the players and teams behind.
When the full teams finally do come together, it is like starting all over.
The solution seems to be pretty simple. School is in session about 40 weeks a
year. Football, of course, is a once-a-week scheduled game. The playoffs should
be over in four weeks. Give football and volleyball seasons 14 weeks. Start the
boys and girls basketball seasons, playing twice a week, the Monday after the
Saturday State championship football games. This should be around the last week
in November.
The basketball state championships should be over the first week in March.
Start baseball and softball one week later. This would eliminate the overlapping
of the sports.
If your school is not in the playoffs that gives you more practice time for the
next sport while the, participants play till they lose.
Each sport's playoff season lasts longer, because in Florida, the district runnerup
team is allowed to continue play. How fair is this? If you are second best in your
district, you get another chance, but if you win your district, then you are in a lose-
" *and-go-home game situation. If the runnerup games were not played this would
cut each season by a full week.
If you lose a district championship game your season should be over. Why give
a team a second chance and keep players at these small schools, who are multi-
sport athletes, away from their next sports team.
Of course, that is just my own opinion.


Coming Soon!
Who are the top 25 Levy County football players of the past 25
years? Is the list full of Chiefland Indians? Or is it packed to the
brim with Williston Red Devils? Perhaps
Bronson Eagle players dominate the list. We'll give you
your chance to have a say in the coming weeks.

Bronson gets new basketball coach

Story and photo by Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

After 27 years Bronson High School, Head Basketball Coach Kelly Beckham has
moved on to continue his coaching career. Enter Aaron Haldeman, a Bronson graduate
and a member of Beckham's 1991-92 basketball team. Haldeman was formerly the Head
Basketball Coach at Cedar Key School.
Haldeman said he hopes to continue the tradition of excellence established by
Beckham.
"I played for Kelly Beckham and there is not a lot that will change from what he has
been doing for the last quarter century here at Bronson," he said. Haldeman was given the
news about three weeks ago and has now started working with his new Eagles team.
While the school was in linbo after Beckham announced he was leaving, Haldeman
was working with his team at Cedar Key at a camp in Tampa. When he found out he
had the position at Bronson he met with his Cedar Key team and informed them of his
decision.
Holdeman has told his new team he will coach hard. Ld in return he exp-cts them to
work hard to be successful.
Haldeman said staff member Kenny Thomas was the person who held things together
while the selection process for a new coach went forward. Holdeman has also added 2002
Bronson graduate Brent Walker to the coaching staff. Walker played college basketball at
Santa Fe after graduating from Bronson High School.
Haldeman said he is excited about returning to Bronson High School as the boys
Varsity Basketball Coach.

Dealing with pests in the landscape and garden


Gardeners in North Florida are blessed with warm
temperatures, usually ample moisture and as a result, we enjoy
a long growing season. Not only may we reap vegetables,
herbs, and an array of flowering plants but sometimes, garden
and landscape 'pests' as well.
What do we mean by pest? By definition, anything that
competes with humans, domestic animals or cultivated plants
for food or water; injures or spreads disease to humans,
animals or cultivated plants, structures or possessions; or
annoys humans or domestic animals is a pest. Almost anything
can be a pest at one time or another. That cute little squirrel
scampering around my petunia bed becomes a
public enemy number one when he starts chewing N atu Coast
on fruit trees or eating all my bird seed in the N U re C Oa
feeders. Pests can also be weeds, insects, or
microbial organisms including fungi, bacteria, G arden N ote
nematodes, and virus.
So the first step in managing plant pests is D. Anthony Drel
proper identification. Knowing the enemy is crucial.
Several strategies may then be employed to responsibly manage pests in the landscape
and garden. The implementation of these strategies is called IPM (Integrated
Pest Management). The basis of IPM is the incorporation of all the available pest
management methods in order to adequately control the pest while protecting the

Outta the Woods


By Tony Woods
Florida Fish and Wildlife, Conservation Commission

To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but spending quality time
in the outdoors with good friends and family.
One of the best ways to do just that is through dove hunting. And, with that in mind,
it's easy to see why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find.
That's why the FWC created its Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program to offer
hunters the chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the state's best public
dove fields.
Dove Club permits allow one adult and one youth (under age 16) to hunt all scheduled
dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost only $150 and enable both hunters
to each take a daily bag limit of birds. There are a total of eight hunts on all but one
(Caravelle Ranch) of the selected dove fields, and all hunts are half-day and take place on
Saturday, starting Oct. 4 and ending Jan. 10.
There are seven special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state, from as
far west as Holmes County in the Panhandle to as far south as Miami.
One of the fields is on Fussell Farm Public Small-Game Hunting Area (PSGHA) in
Polk County. There are 13 Dove Club permits available for the 40-acre field. Another
field is on Allapattah Flats PSGHA in Martin County. There are 25 Dove Club permits
for sale to hunt on the 100 acres.
Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County (40 Dove Club permits for sale) will also be back
this coming season, and so will Frog Pond in Miami-Dade County (38 Dove Club permits
for sale).
The three remaining fields are new, and they are: Brown Farm PSGHA in Holmes
County (13 Dove Club permits for sale), Combs Farm PSGHA in Baker County-(10 Dove
Club per tits fbr'sf6)Iahd North' Ne%%berry PSGHA in Alachua County (18 Dove Club
permits for sale).
Last year, 1,077 hunters participated in special-opportunity dove hunts, and a total
of 2,206 birds were harvested for an average harvest of a little more than two birds per
hunter. e
Frog Pond Dove Field, on the southern-most end of the Florida peninsula, really
produced last season. Nearly 600 doves were taken from there last year. On Allapattah
Flats Dove Field, east of Lake Okeechobee, participants experienced an average take
of 2.6 birds per hunter per day. In the central part of the state, hunters at Fussell Farm
enjoyed a nearly 2-birds-per-hunter average on each hunt.
Dove Club permits went on sale July 1, and hunters can purchase these season passes
at any county tax collector's office, license agent, online at MyFWC.com/dove or by
calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA. They're sold first-come, first-served, and the
best fields go quickly, so you better get a move on.


environment.
Planting plant species and varieties that have natural pest resistance is the most
effective of all pest management practices. Other cultural strategies include proper
fertilization and watering practices, rotation in vegetable gardening and best times to
plant which may influence pests and success in controlling them.
Additional strategies include mechanical, biological and chemical methods of pest
management. Mechanical methods are the oldest utilized by man. Hoeing or pulling
weeds may be the most effective control available for smaller-scale pest problems.
Pinch off that horn worm and stop 'em .with your boot. Mechanical control may not be
glamorous, but it can still be the best choice available.
Biological control methods can occur naturally. Beneficial insects such as lady bugs
can keep the bad bugs, such as aphids, at bay as long as you don't over-use or unwisely
use chemical controls. Trap crops such as marigolds may be planted on the perimeter of
a garden. Biological pest control agents, such as BT, may be applied as a spray or dust
to manage pests.
When using chemical controls, remember that pesticides target specific pests and can
only be used safely and legally on specific crops. The label is the law.

for managing them, or other gardening or landscape questions, visit online at www.

or stop by the Levy County Extension Office, 625 North Hathaway Avenue, Bronson, to

Until next month, Happy Gardening!

Big fish
Shannon McGehee (left) and Nicole Certain claimed the first place prize
June 17 at a local bass tournament in Fanning Springs. The two managed
four keepers, which weighed in at a total of 8 pounds, 12 ounces. More
than 30 other teams could not keep pace with that total, giving Certain and
McGehee the title. Being the only female team to fish the tournament and
the third time to ever fish together made this an exciting experience for
both. Certain and McGehee fished in a boat provided by Deke's Steakhouse
in Chiefland, which has continued to support and sponsor the two. One of
the owners, Stanley Watson, was present to watch the excitement unfold
as the girls claimed their victory.

New on DVD


'Bucket List' brings


bucket of tears

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman once again remind us of
their incredible acting abilities in the recent DVD release "Bucket
List." Director Rob Reiner brings us a poignant portrayal of end-
of-life matters, in a not-too-sappy, but meaningful way. Could we
expect anything less from the man who brought us such classics as
"Sleepless in Seattle" and "The Princess Bride"?
"Bucket List" introduces us to Cole, played by Nicholson,
who has built his fortune taking over hospitals and making them
profitable. His controversial "two beds, one room, no exception"
policy hits a little too close to home when he finds himself hospital-
bound with advanced cancer. An egotistical cynic without family or
friends, Cole doesn't like being told he cannot have a private room
it would cause a public relations nightmare, says his personal
assistant, played by Sean Hayes. Cole's colorful language earns the
movie a PG-13 rating.
His roommate, Morgan Freeman's "Carter," is a hard-working
family man and 46-year veteran mechanic. Cole's opposite, Carter
is a Jeopardy-loving walking encyclopedia with a kind heart and
soft-spoken nature.
While "Bucket List" accurately portrays many of the unsavory
aspects of cancer, it unfortunately sugarcoats the hospital
environment with extra-large rooms and extended stays. Anyone
who has spent even a short time in hospitals can see through this
depiction. Most insurance companies follow a simple rule: if you're
well enough to walk and talk you're well enough to be sick at
home.
An unlikely friendship develops as the two patients work to make
the best of their situation. At one point Cole asks Carter, "Do you
hate me?" To which Carter replies, "Not yet."
When they are finally released, each with similarly disconcerting
prognoses less than one year to live they set out together to
accomplish the goals of their bucket list: things to do before you
kick the bucket.
An around-the-world journey ensues, at times both laugh-
out-loud hysterical and tearfully heart-wrenching. "Bucket List"
tackles many issues, from end-of-life decisions to family dynamics,
resulting in the need for at least one full tissue box while viewing.
Nicholson and Freeman are both in top form, illustrating what
two incredibly talented actors, confident in their abilities and secure
with their aging selves, can achieve.
If only the rest of us were so fortunate to live long lives, have
unlimited finances, and a year's warning to go out in style.

New in Music


Eaglke can still bring it

By Rick Burnham
Editor

There was a time when The Eagles the '70s era rock band
- ruled the world. You could not turn on the radio without hearing an
Eagles tune. Their music defined a lifestyle; it defined a generation.
Then, in 1980, they quit. Personalities reportedly clashed, and
egos reportedly got in the way of the music. The perfect harmonies
grew silent, and the stunning melodies came to a halt.
Then, in 1994, in the midst of a rush of rock band reunions, The
Eagles got back together. There was a new CD, along with a concert
OVD, full of new songs and old standbys. For fans of The Eagles,
life was good.
Now, more than a decade later, life is suddenly very good. With
little fanfare, "The Eagles Farewell I Tour Live From Melbourne,"
a two-DVD package, recently hit the streets. Suddenly, it is 1976
again.
This DVD set is no movie, and it was not overlooked among the
box office blockbusters released six or so months ago. But, if you
grew up in the '70s, and if you didn't, it is certainly worth a look for
your entertainment dollar.
Four members of the band comprise the current version of The
Eagles: Don Henley, Glen Frey, Timothy B. Schmidt, and Joe Walsh.
Randy Meisner is long gone, as is Bernie Leadon. Guitar great
Don Felder has now bowed out as well. But, because The Eagles
were and are so multi-talented, there is still plenty of music left to
celebrate.
Henley is remarkable, perhaps the consummate musician of our
time. His vocals are pinpoint, his percussion work impeccable. Frey
still provides a quality counter-punch, and kicks in appealing vocals
on fast songs, slow songs, and songs in between. Schmidt can still
belt out the ballad. And Walsh provides stunning guitar work, along
with a consistent stream of comedic expressions.
Together, on these DVDs, they give us "Hotel California,"
"Lying Eyes," and "Take It Easy." "One Of These Nights," "The
Long Run," and "Peaceful Easy Feeling." "Take It To The Limit,"
,"Desperado" and "Tequila Sunrise." "Already Gone," "I Can't Tell
'You Why," and "Heartache Tonight." "Life In The Fast Lane," "The
;Long Run," and "Wasted Time."
SThat, in itself, would be reason enough to pick up the DVD set.
But The Eagles do not stop there. The Melbourne concert includes


,plenty of songs previously recorded on solo albums. Henley sings
'"The Boys of Summer" and "All She Wants To Do Is Dance." Frey
,belts out "You Belong To The City." Walsh is mesmerizing, and
,quite animated, in performing "Life's Been Good" and "Rocky
:Mountain Way."
Perhaps that is the highlight of this two-DVD set. The band
,performs each of these previously released solo hits as if they
,were their own, and we get a sense of what The Eagles might have
;accomplished if they had not broken up in 1980.
If you are a fan of The Eagles, chances are you have already
,picked up "The Eagles Farewell I Tour Live From Melbourne." If
'not, if your musical tastes tend to slant toward other styles, perhaps
;you ought to pick it up anyway. These DVDs provide a glance back
'to a different day and age, when the music somehow found a way to
'touch us all.

Springho
Springhouse quilters have all been very busy
holding workshops and 4-H sewing camps for the
last month. The night group of the quilters had
a wonderful stained glass workshop last Tuesday
night with 15 ladies in attendance either auditing
or actually making the stained glass piece. Karen
Alberts was the leader for a special tulip stained
glass piece. Karen has made several stained glass
pieces and is quite knowledgeable about the proper
methods of fabric stained glass. To show off some
of her work, she had pictures of dolphins, tulips,
and lilies made into stained glass pieces. Even
though Karen is a beginner quilter for 2008, she has
been making stained glass fabric pieces for several
years.
The last week of the 4-H sewing-quilting
camp will get under way on July 44. Ms. Elaine
Faison and volunteers from Springhouse host this
event. This will be the third and final week of the
camp and will be for intermediate 4-H members
who have been exposed to sewing and quilting in
previous years.
Springhouse members are having a Round
Robin swap for 6 months: swapping a quilt block
from member to member who adds either a border
or something special to the block. The expanded
block will be returned to its owner in October for


weedeater, cleaned flowerbeds and we had a great
day. Thanks Lancaster.
We will be having the 4-H sewing class next
week. We teach them to quilt. We always enjoy
seeing these girls using a needle and thimble.
Lunch was great with fried okra, zippie peas,
squash casserole, corn bread, green beans, baked
chicken, chicken casserole, vegetable platter, cake.

tions 120.569 and 120.57, Flori-
da Statutes. Any administrative
intervention (in a proceeding
initiated by another party) will be
only at the discretion of the pre-
siding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule
28-106.205, Florida Administra-
tive Code.

A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the De-
partment's action is based must
contain the following informa-
tion:

(a) The name, address,
and telephone number of each
petitioner; the name, address
and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if
any; the Department permit
identification number and the
county in which the subject mat-
ter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner received
notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial interests
are affected by the Department
action;
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition must
so indicate;
(e) A statement df facts that
the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the


Legal Notices

Department action;
(f) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged as well
as the rules and statutes which
entitle the petitioner to relief;
and
(g) A statement of the re-
lief sought by the petitioner, stat-
ing precisely the action that the
petitioner wants the Department
to take.

Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means
that the Department's final ac-
tion may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such
final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to be-
come a party to the proceeding,
in accordance with requirements
set forth above.

In addition to requesting
an administrative hearing, any
petitioner may elect to pursue
mediation. The election may be
accomplished, by filing with the
Department a mediation agree-
ment with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and suf-
fiqient petition for a hearing).
The agreement must contain all
the information required by Rule
28-106.404, Florida Administra-
tive Code. The agreement must
be received by the clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000, within in ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition, as
set forth above. Choosing me-
diation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if media-
tion does not result in a settle-
ment.

As provided in Section
120.573, Florida Statutes, the
timely agreement of all par-
ties to mediate will toll the time
limitations imposed by Sections
120.59 and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes, for holding an administra-
tive hearing and issuing a final
order. ? Iklts9athesepageed
by tlff 'lotties, lthe'Iedtiation
must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the
agreement. If mediation results
in settlement of the administra-
tive dispute, the Department
must enter a final order incor-
porating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to pro-
tect their substantial interests
that would be affected by such
a modified final decision must
file their petitions within fourteen
days of receipt by this notice, or
they shall be deemed to have
waited their right to a proceed-
ing under Sections 120-569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If me-
diation terminates without settle-
ment of the dispute, the Depart-
ment shall notify all parties in
writing that the administrative
hearing processes under Sec-
tion 120.569 and 120.57, Flori-
da Statutes, remain available for
disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the dead-
lines that then will apply for chal-
lenging the agency action and
electing remedies under those
two statues.
