Discussed during

surgeon general visit

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Florida's first surgeon general was
told during a visit to Bronson Friday that
the county needs a new $16 million Levy
County Health Department building and
will have to obtain state financial assistance
to build it.
Dr. Ana M. Viamonte Ros, also the
Florida Department of Health secretary,
said state law prohibits her from lobbying
for the project, but she tossed out the names
of a couple of state lawmakers she said
could be instrumental in helping the county
secure the needed money.
Viamonte Ros encouraged local officials
at the meeting to educate their state
lawmakers about the project.
"It's critical they understand your
needs," she said.
Viamonte Ros, who fled Cuba with her
family in 1960, is a medical doctor. She was
appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist last year
to be secretary of the Florida Department
of Health. He later designated. her as the
state's first surgeon general.
Attending the meeting at the Levy
County Health Department Friday were
County Commission Chairman Sammy
Yearty, County Commissioner Nancy
Bell, Levy County Health Department
Administrator Barbara Locke, Property
Appraiser Francis Akins, businesswomen
Ada Marie Keeton and Libby Barr, and

Free standing campus


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Dr. Charles Dassance, president of Central Florida Community College, said Monday
that building the first ever free-standing community college campus in Levy County
*would send a message about the importance of higher education.
Dassance, who paid a visit to the existing CFCC Levy County Center in a Chiefland
shopping center, is part of the campaign to raise $1.5 million locally to be used as matching
funds for constructing the first two-story building on the new campus.
"I can't think of a more important symbol than having a college in a community,"
Dassance said. "A free standing facility sends a much more powerful message about the
importance of higher education."
The campaign to raise local contributions for the new college campus north of Chiefland
has been taking place for many months. Donors like dairyman Ron St. John and Luther
Drummond are among the local business people who have contributed to the $871,000
raised thus far.

H Chiefland honors fallen soldier

with dedication of local highway


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

U.S. Army Specialist Brandon Thoreson
was killed in combat last year in Iraq, but
his sacrifice won't be forgotten.
A sign dedicating the section of U.S. 19
in front of Chiefland High School to the 22-
year-old CHS graduate was unveiled at a
ceremony Tuesday.
His father, Donald Thoreson, and
stepmother, Sysan, were present. Donald
Thoreson said the sign meant a great deal
to him. Brandon was his only son.
"It's an honor. Freedom isn't free,"
Thoreson said. "If it wasn't for volunteers
like him, we wouldn't be exercising our
freedoms."
. Thoreson, who served in the First
Cavalry from Fort Bliss, Texas and would
have turned 23 on Aug. 23, volunteered
for combat infantry duty. He was killed on
Sept. 15, 2007 in Baghdad during combat.
operations.
The ceremony honoring Thoreson was
organized by Police Chief Robert Douglas.


When Douglas heard about Thoreson's
death, he saidhe calledThoreson's father and
asked him for permission to do something
for the fallen soldier. Since Thoreson was a
CHS graduate, Douglas suggested naming
the highway in front of the school for him.
The elder Thoreson agreed.
Douglas contacted State Sen. Charles
Dean, R-Invemess and State Rep. Will
Kendrick, R-Carrabelle. They introduced
legislation in the Senate and House
respectively, authorizing the naming of the
quarter mile section of U.S, 19 in front of
CHS for Thoreson.
"It's the least we can do," Douglas said.
"We've got to honor our servicemen and
women."
Douglas said Thoresen will never be
able to drive up and down U.S. 19, or do
other things young men of his age take part
in, including raise a family and children.
Douglas said Thoreson knew the dangers
of being a combat soldier in Iraq, and set an
example by volunteering.
"He knew that going in and he did it
anyway," Douglas said.


'symbol of higher education'


Charles Dassance, president of Central Florida
Community College, said a free-standing campus
is the best symbol of community's commitment to
higher education.

Remembering Yoshi Campbell


Restaurant's new owner

works to stay true

to its founder

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor
* The basic theme of Campbell's Seafood Restaurant in
Bronson remains the same as it has always been, and many of
the recipes that made the place a favorite among Levy County
residents are in place as well.
: But, just in case that is not enough, in case anyone happens
to forget the roots of Campbell's, a constant reminder occupies
a place of honor, just inside the front door.
: There, a framed picture of Yoshi Campbell greets
customers as they enter the establishment, much the same as
Yoshi herself did for years.
Campbell, who died last year of complications resulting
from cancer, sold the restaurant to Grace Rydecki and husband
karl a few months before her death. As a condition of the
sale, Campbell made Rydecki promise to keep seafood as the
staple of the restaurant.
; Having worked beside Yoshi in the restaurant, and having
known her personally for several months, Rydecki made the
promise, and took it a step or two further.
"I met her and she really was a super sweet lady," Rydecki
said. "She didn't have any immediate family here, so she was
kind of like by herself.
"So I promised her that I would keep it seafood, and we
also got a few of her recipes. We wanted to keep it as original
:as possible."
Rydecki tells the story of the early days of Campbell's
-Seafood, tales that many Bronson residents are more than
'familiar with. The building originally began as a fish market,
but many of the patrons would bring their catch back for
,Yoshi to cook. Wanting to operate solely as a restaurant, the
:Rydeckis changed some of the interior to make the best of the
.available space.
"We kind of modernized the place," said Rydecki, who
is originally from New York, and moved to Florida when
'she was 14. "We gutted the inside and connected the main
,building with a building out back."
I The improvements were made possible by a $1,000 sales
:tax refund check from the Levy County Enterprise Zone
:Development Agency.
"That was extremely helpful," Rydecki said, "because
,when you first open up you always have expenses you don't
,know about."
The new Campbell's Seafood opened in September, and,
'after a couple of false starts, appears to be on solid ground.
:There is more room than ever for customers, and, slowly but
'surely, much of the old clientele is beginning to make their
way back.
"We are a little out of the way for people who only have an
.hour for their lunch break," she said. "But a lot of the people
,from places around town call in their orders so that they don't
'have to wait."
Those who choose instead to eat inside the restaurant will
have their patience rewarded, she added.
"Everything is prepped to order," she said. "There are very
%few things that we can just reach in and pull out and throw in
:a fryer. So the food takes a little longer coming out, but I am
hoping everybody thinks the quality is a little better."
Just like the old days, when Yoshi Campbell was at the
helm.
Campbell's seafood is open Monday through Friday for
breakfast, lunch and supper.

"I think EZDA is one of the last things the board would be
willing to cut." Parker said. "All the board members really
support it. We are definitely going through some hard decisions
in cutting, but I think that. with our economy and what this
brings to our county, giving incentives to other businesses to
come in that we need for jobs, I don't see it being cut."

Sheriff's hiring of accountant led to good audit opinion


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Sheriff Johnny Smith was expecting a bad audit report
for the year 2007, but he got a good report instead, largely
Sbcause he hired a certified public accountant to fix what
was wrong, and he fixed it quickly.
The county's auditor, Davis Monk & Company, issued
an "unqualified opinion" in June regarding the sheriff's
financial records. An unqualified opinion is the best an
,agency can receive.
Auditors identified six issues, or findings of problems,
,and made recommendations on how to correct them.
Smith said he was happy with the outcome of the audit.
He said the problems auditors found have been corrected.
Brannan said Smith was expecting a critical audit report
when he talked to reporters in April, but it turned out better
than he thought.
"He thought it was going to be bad, but it wasn't," she
said. "The big thing is the auditors know it's been fixed and
it won't happen. again. It's looking great now."
; Brannan said there was no misappropriation of funds or
loss of funds.
Brannan added that she had nothing to do with the
auditors giving Smith an "unqualified opinion." She said
auditors were independent of the county. They identified
;e problems. Brannan said she worked with Smith's staff
correct them.
; Smith said when he first received a verbal report on the
.:0dit findings, he made an immediate decision to get out
t:- front of the problem and let people know he intended
,to correct what was wrong. He said that was why he hired
::Brannan to train and work with his financial staff.
"I brought it to the forefront from the get go," he said. "I

knew there were issues, but I had to fix it."
Smith's opponent, Bobby McCallum, said the past three
years have seen negative audit reports for the sheriffs'
office. He said the audits have been getting progressively
worse and it was his understanding that federal grants for
the sheriff and possibly other parts of county government
would have been in jeopardy.
"They had to do something or it would have affected
all the county's federal grants," McCallum said. "There's
plenty of fuel for the fire. It shows a lack of concern for
financial management."
Martha Garcia Baker, a certified public accountant
who was involved with the sheriff's audit, said she was
not aware of any agency telling the county it could lose a
federal grant because of the sheriff's office audit findings.
"Could it lead to that? Yes. There's a potential for that if
there are enough findings," she said. "Sometimes grantors
can live with certain difficulties, sometimes they can't."
Among the audit findings:
Because of limited personnel, it is not always
possible to segregate incompatible duties. Consequently
the possibility exists that unintentional errors or intentional
errors or irregularities could exist and not be properly
detected. The auditors recommended separating employee
duties so no one individual has access to both physical
assets and related accounting records.
The office received several federal grants through
the Levy County Commission. The sheriff's office did
not request reimbursement for expenses from these grants
in a timely fashion. Therefore, significant money was
spent from general revenues until the sheriff's office was
reimbursed with grant money. Auditors recommended
filing reimbursement requests on time to enhance cash
flow. Timely reimbursements would also improve financial

reporting.
Auditorsnoted several instances ofmisclassification
of accounting records. Auditors recommended posting
actual transactions to the proper accounts in the general
ledger.
The sheriff's office's internal control system does
not provide a means to ensure that errors in the accounting
records do not occur nor does it provide a mechanism to
ensure that if errors happen they are detected and corrected
in a timely fashion. Auditors recommended implementing
accounting policies and procedures to reduce the likelihood
of errors in accounting records
As part of the audit process, auditors proposed
adjustments to the sheriff's office's financial statements. It
was also necessary for auditors to assist with the preparation
of the sheriff's offices' financial statements. The proposed
adjustments were accepted by management, "enabling the
financial statements to be presented in conformity with
generally accepted accounting principles."
"We recommend that you consider and evaluate the
costs and benefits of improving internal controls relative
to the financial reporting process," the audit report said.
Smith responded to the audit findings in a June 19 letter
to the state Office of Auditor General. He said many of the
findings have been corrected with the help of an outside
accounting firm. He said the sheriff's office has evaluated
the cost verses benefit of establishing internal controls for
preparation of financial statements, and have determined
the best way is to outsource the task to "our independent
auditors."
"Additionally, I believe that the steps taken and
previously described will reduce the number of significant
audit adjustments our auditors will need to make in the
next audit," Smith said.

CFCC, from Page 1
Jack and Loy Ann Mann donated the site of the future
campus, a forested parcel between Chiefland and Fanning
Springs off U.S. 19. The hardwood forest stands between
the highway and the Nature Coast Trail. The college is
negotiating to buy additional adjoining land. The eventual
plan is for a 41-acre campus.
The college and its local supporters hope to raise the
$1.5 million by Feb 1 in time for the Florida Legislature
to match those funds dollar for dollar. College officials are
scheduling meetings with local families that may have an
interest in making donations to the fund raising campaign.
Central Florida Community College has served Levy
County since 1958. An educational center was established
in 1982.
In 1991, the Levy County School Board and CFCC
entered into an agreement allowing the college to administer
the adult general education programs and college credit
and continuing education programs. The education center
was first located in Bronson but was moved in 1993 to the
Chiefland location in 14,000 square feet of rented space in
a shopping center.
The Levy Center offers an adult general education
program, continuing education courses, corporate training
classes, and college credit courses leading to associate
degrees. The college credit program gives students an
opportunity to complete an Associate in Arts degree in
two years through classes at the center and in Ocala. The
college also offers educational programs over the Internet.
Dassance said the shopping center has served well as
an educational center for CFCC. Once a student enters the
front door, the shopping center outside disappears from
view and the student finds himself or herself in a college
atmosphere.

institution, like the one CFCC would like to build north
of Chiefland, is the ultimate goal, Dassance said. The two-
story brick building would have white columns framing the
entrance. It would look like a quality community collie
on the outside and inside. But it will take a $1.5 million
local effort to get that done.
The new college campus would operate much like it
does now, except it will be free standing. Over time, as
the student .population and the county population grow,
course offerings for students will expand and more degree
programs will come into being, according to Dassance.
"What will happen there will depend on how quickly
we can grow the enrollment, Dassance said.
The fund raising campaign for a new campus comes at
a time tvhen a private hospital is about to be constructed
in Chiefland, and Progress Energy Florida is proposing to
build two nuclear reactors near Inglis.
If Suncoast Parkway II is constructed through Cittus
County it would add traffic to U.S. 19. The four-laning of
U.S. 27A and U.S. 27 from Chiefland to Ocala is already
ramping up traffic loads in north Chiefland.
The college is aware of the approaching growth.
Dassance said a hew campus would be a quality additiori.
"It's an investment in the future of:the community,"
Dassance said. "We're asking people to invest in what this
community could be."

Williston arrests

Police arrest man with crack pipe


Make boating safety


a top priority

The enjoyment of boating in Florida is one of the reasons Florida is
the home of millions of people that enjoy the great outdoors on the water.
Boaters enjoy the benefits of being in one pf the greatest boating spots.
But with this, there is danger.
In order to get the maximum enjoyment out of your Florida boating
experience, it is critical that you have
a thorough understanding of boating
safety principles. It would be nice if we
knew an emergency was about to occur;
however, we rarely get a second chance .
to prepare for an emergency in the real
world. Having all of your required and
necessary safety equipment on your
boat before you head out on the water
is an important first step. Knowing
the -boating laws can help you stay
safe and also avoid a citation from law
enforcement.
The more knowledge you have SHERIFFS
regarding the safe operation of your
boat, the more ability you have to enjoy C O RN ER
this boating paradise called Florida. You SHER1IFF JOHNNY SMITH
are never too young or old to learn a
thing or two about boating safety.
Florida has the unfortunate distinction of leading the nation in
deaths due to boating accidents. In 2006 Florida had 69 fatalities, with
Texas following with 47 fatalities. The top 10 counties in Florida with
reportable boating accidents during the 2006 calendar year were Monroe,
Palm Beach, Dade, Pinellas, Lee, Broward, Collier, Brevard, Escambia,
and Duval.
It is my goal for Levy County to never be in the top 10 for boating
accidents.
Many of these fatal accidents appear to be somewhat uneventful, other
than the fact that someone lost their life. They usually take place in calm,
protected waters and involve a middle age or older man who has plenty
of boating experience and knows how to swim. More often than not,
the victims drown as a result of unexpectedly falling overboard, so it is
always important when operating your boat to wear your life jacket.
Safety Equipment/Tips: You must have an approved personal flotation
device for each person on board and it is recommended that you wear
it. Also on your checklist, you should have a fire extinguisher, a visual
distress signal, a sound producing device such as a whistle, horn or bell,
an anchor, and either an oar or paddle. It is also recommended before
you go on the open waters to let a family member know where you are
going -ad when yoQexpect io, btck A 'liore. lays dg- safety
chec,-p your v before, nch 80,l 7el 8s.
Boating Safety Education: Anyone 21 years of age or younger, is
required to either have successfully completed a National Association
of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) approved boating
education course or have passed a course equivalency or temporary
certificate examination. They are also required to have in their possession
a boating education ID card and a photo identification card before
operating a vessel with a motor of 10. horsepower or more in Florida.
Identification cards for persons completing the course or the equivalency
exam are good for a lifetime.
In a split second, with no warning, you can be involved in a boating
accident. Please pay attention and do not violate any laws. Do not drink
alcohol while operating a vessel and be courteous to your fellow boater.


They said he could have used it for violence
based on the moves he was making with his'
hands.
Other Williston police arrests:
A man who refused to give police his
name, and whom they are calling John Doe, was
arrested at 12:26 p.m. on July 12 on a charge of
having no driver's license. Police said the man
was northbound on N.E. 10th St. when he did
not come to a complete stop at a stop sign. He
was stopped. Police found no identification on
him and he did not have a driver's license, so
police listed him as John Doe until .he can be
properly identified.
Gary M. Dizkoski, 28, 415 S.E. 1st Place,
Williston, at 10:15 a.m., July 12 on a charge of

Sheriffs deputies arrest gunman after dispute


A Fanning Springs man was arrested July 14
by the Levy County Sheriff's Office on charges
of firing a high power rifle into a vehicle at Jack's
Recycling.
Seth Leon Foster, 20, 16116 N.W. U.S. 19,
Fanning Springs, was arrested on two counts of
aggravated assault, the sheriff's office said.
Investigators said Foster and the victim had
been in a verbal altercation which led to a physical
fight. Foster, an employee at Jack Recycling,

caliber SKS rifle and shot the victim's vehicle
five or six times.

A Williston man was arrested by Williston
police on July 11 after he was seen by an
officer on foot patrol smoking a crack pipe in a
wooded area of the city, police said.
Wilson Bert James, 54, 128 SE 10t Street,
Williston, was arrested on charges ofpossession
of drug paraphernalia and .resisting arrest with
violence.
The city officer was on foot on a trail in
an area known as "Dicky Boys" when he saw
James seated near a tree attempting to light
a homemade crack cocaine pipe, police say.
Upon seeing the officer, James attempted to
conceal the pipe in his hand.
The patrolman produced his taser and
ordered James to the ground. James argued
with the officer and refused to put his hands
behind his back, police said. He also attempted
to stand and move his hands toward the front
of his body. The officer called for back-up.
James was pulled to the ground when the
second officer arrived. The officers said they
had to use force to control James. When he was
handcuffed, officers found a knife on James
that they hadn't seen while taking him down.

Florida Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros paid a visit to the Levy County Health Department Friday
where she met with local officials


Florida Surgeon General Ana M. Viamonte Ros is welcomed to the Levy County Health Department by
Administrator Brbara Locl(rigt),and her friend and Bronson businesswoman Ada Maietpp
Admii~rtorl~araraLoc ri x pma Ad NI


Health, from Page 1
the WellFlorida Council in Gainesville.
Keeton is a longtime friend ofViamonte Ros. She and Libby Barr, her sister, took part
in the discussions because of their interest in building a new facility to replace what Locke
described as an aging and overcrowded health department building. Both are Bronson
businesswomen associated with BK Cypress.
Locke said this is the fifth consecutive year the Levy County Health Department has
sought state funding from the Florida Legislature. She said the process is competitive
and money is tight this year in Tallahassee, but she said the county is ranked third for
funding.
The new 23,000-square-foot building would be constructed on five acres of property
along County Road 337 about two blocks east of the intersection of County Road 32. The
county commission has future plans to build a Courthouse Annex on the 21-acre site, but
five acres has been dedicated to the health department for its proposed building. Ros was
made aware of this fact.
County commissioners have no funds to construct either the annex or the health
department building. That is why Locke and her staff are concentrating on securing state
funding through the Legislature. -
The original health department building was completed in 1961 with'federal Hill-Burton
funding for health facilities that provide low or reduced cost care. The first addition came
in 1975 for environmental health, administration and two additional clinic exam rooms.
A renovation with addition was done in 1989 to add more space for environmental health,
renovate office space, add a patient waiting area, a staff eating area and clerical space.
A third addition was finished in 1995 to provide office space for a computer technician,
tobacco coordinator, the healthy start program, and a classroom.
Asbestos ceiling tiles were removed in 1988 from all but two exam rooms, the
employee lounge, laboratory and one administrative office. The remaining asbestos tiles
were removed in 2007. A new roof was added in 2005. Two septic tank drain fields have
failed since 2001 and Locke expects more to fail in the future.
There are six bathrooms in the original building, five for patients, along with one each
for visitor and employee use. They were built in 1961 and are not handicap accessible.
There are two handicap bathrooms in the 1995 addition for staff and patients, but they
must cross a breezeway to. gain access to the restrooms.
The environmental health department building has twice been treated for termites.
Parking has always been limited at the building. Many patients now park in the grassed
median strip because they have nowhere else to park. The town of Bronson has been
forgiving of the practice.
Health officials say the department is busy. In the nine months between October 2007
and July 2008 nearly 11,000 people visited for everything from healthy start infant care,
school health, water and on-site sewage issues, groundwater contamination, to family
planning and more. The health department provided 124,000 services in that time frame.
Locke said the 8,000-square-foot health department houses 47 employees. That
doesn't include the part-time employees who work at the facility such as nursing students
and nurse practitioners, including two Hispanic workers to deal with Spanish speaking
residents. They have no space for the second Hispanic worker.
Adult residents are turned away every day because of lack of facilities, Locke said.
The proposed $16 million facility would take care of the health department's current
space needs and would allow an additional doctor or nurse practitioner to work there.

Ask them these questions


We need more prisoners
The 2008-2009 budget for the county is now
upon us. The present BOCC already indicated
a 15 percent reduction across the board for all
departments. There is no doubt going to be a
shortfall within the budget and costs are going
to be extremely tight not only for this year but
also next year.
Two years ago a proposal was put forth to the
present BOCC and they turned it down, twice.
The proposal presented was for the Sheriff's
Department to go outside and house inmates
from other counties and federal prisoners.As
it stands now there are many empty beds at
the county facility that could house additional
inmates. Doing this would bring to the county.
much needed funds. By doing this and taking
into consideration the cost involved for housing
75 additional inmates and if the other counties
paid $50 per day for their inmates and the
Federal rate was $54 per day per inmate the
result would be a positive ariount in excess of
$1 million dollars.
With 75 inmates, outside of Levy County, the
approximate annual cost would be $333,402.50.
The same cost would also be applicable for
Federal Inmates. This amount would include
the proposed cost for food, uniforms, sheets,
towels, slides, blankets, hygiene and five
additional correctional officers. However, there
is a possibility that the five correctional officers
could be reduced and if that occurred the
generated income would increase.
If there were 75 inmates from other counties
the generated income would he $1,016,597.50.
If there were 75 Federal inmates the generated
income would be $1,124,597.50. The two
amounts are after the approximate cost of
$333,402.50 was deducted. These amounts
represent the approximate cost and revenue as
stated above.
It would be suggested a percentage of this
income be placed into a contingency fund for
the Sheriff's Department and the remainder
be placed in the county's General Fund. This
would allow the Sheriff's Department an excess
contingency in case of an emergency, such as
the recent purchase of the new radio system.
Can the county afford to turn down a profit
increase excess of $1 million dollars? I think
not. I~jagtbove proposal is not completely"
,acce~ililin an alternative would be a two-
year trial basis. If the revenue does not present
itself within that time then the program could be
discontinued. With the additional revenue the
BOCC could fund the necessary increase for
the various fire departments around the county.
After all, isn't the responsibility of the BOCC to
serve and provide services for the people of the
County? .
Marguerite Robinson, concerned citizen

Change needed at Post Office
Attention citizens of Chiefland, local
businesses and the Chamber of Commerce,
we must call out for the REMOVAL of
Chiefland Postmaster Malisa Fletcher. She
has overstepped her authority with the
mistreatment of long time clerks and residents
of Levy County, Bonnie-George and Debbie
Hamberger. If this is not outrageous enough,
now for the Postmaster to serve a Trespassing
Warning against a family member is an abuse of
authority. To deny the George's access to their
mail is deprivation of their constitutional rights
to Universal service that every citizen is entitled
to. My question is, if the United States Postal
Service can do this to employees and family
members, what will they do to us? With a new
hospital and college coming to Chiefland we
need and deserve a Postmaster that represents
the City of Chiefland in a positive manner.
Under a Postmaster's CODE OF ETHICAL
CONDUCT they are required to adhere to'the
following.
Personal and professional behavior which
reflects a positive image in the community.
Development of positive customer and
community relations by becoming appropriately
involved in the community in which they serve.
Avoidance of any actions which adversely
affect the confidence of the public and the
integrity of the Postal Service. ,
This has not taken place; in factit's been
the complete opposite. Postal Management
has separated themselves from community
involvement. It is time that the citizens
demand that action be taken and remove this
Postmaster once and for all.

Shirley A. Lanier, concerned citizen

R regardless of where you work and what you
do for a living, a common rule of thumb
applies: fail to do your job well, and you run
he risk of being fired.
This is why the whole energy crisis confounds me.
We have the people in place to solve this problem, but
they are not getting the job done. So why not send them
packing? Why not fire our elected officials?
I'm not talking about the Chiefland City Commission,
or the Williston City Council, or the Levy County
Commission. I honestly believe that if Mayor Teal
Pomeroy or Mayor Gerald Hethcoat or Chairman Sammy
Yearty knew of a way to get us $2 gasoline, they would
be out there getting it done. We have done a fine job of
getting the best representatives locally.
I'm talking about Senators Mel Martinez and Bill
Nelson. I'm talking about Representatives Ginny Brown-
Waite and Cliff Steams. I am talking about President
George W. Bush.
GW has only five months left in the Oval Office, so
there is really no point in sending a pink slip his way. You
would be better served researching the two candidates to
take his place to find out which one will better serve our
future energy needs.
The others should not get off quite so easy. Here are a
few points to make the next time you are see them.
When there are ample fuel deposits in our own


backyard, do you advocate continuing to mortgage our
national security and financial freedom by purchasing
it from a region populated by unstable people and
governments who have considerable hate for America? Or
would you like to start drilling here, and now?
Technology has reduced the risk of catastrophic oil
spills to roughly that of airline disasters. If you are not
afraid of flying, then certainly you are not afraid of
drilling, right?
Speaking of technology, there are wonderful new,
and not so new, methods out there for producing energy.
Wind. Hydro. Methane. Natural gas. Isn't it time we
explored these more fully, and gave our wallets a break
from big oil?
Speaking of big oil, if you are so concerned with the
profits those guys are making an average of eight cents
per gallon nationally then surely you are concerned with
the 18 cents per gallon that goes to state and federal taxes,
right? Want to consider lowering those taxes?
Don't expect much of an answer. Mel and Bill, and
Ginny and Cliff are not up for election this time around.
You'll likely get the same ole "Well, we're studying the
options available, along with considerable market trends,
and consulting with subject matter experts blah blah blah
blah."
But at some point, they will each have to face the
music. Tell them they better get moving on what is a very
key issue for this state and district.
And remind them that you've got a vote, and a pink
slip with their name on it.


Four cent refund check a sad reminder


of just how much gasoline costs me


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Some people would love to set some sort of
world record to gain fame. I'm not one of
them, but I may have done it by accident
on Tuesday when I received a check in the
mail for 4 cents. It was from Embarq, the phone and
communications company. It was a refund for closing out
my service. If it wasn't the smallest check in the world, it
was close.
Course, the refund immediately made me think about
$4 per gallon gasoline. Everything does. I wondered to
myself how much gasoline I could-buy-with just four--- --
cents. I know it's not just a mathematical question. Many
of the fuel pumps I use at gasoline stations don't seem to
start spewing gas until the counter reaches 6 to 8 cents.
The mini refund check also reminded me of a story I
saw recently on television. The government is pondering
the possibility of doing away with pennies and nickels in
our money supply because it costs more to produce them
than they are worth. It costs about a dime to produce a
nickel, the story said.'It costs about a nickel to produce a
penny.
If government officials do away with the penny, how
will they tax us at the gas pump and in retail stores?
Sales taxes are based on pennies per dollar for a gallon
of gas or a pair of pants or a shirt in a department store.
In Citrus County, where I lived for seven years; county
commissioners were levying a local sales tax of 12 cents
per gallon of gas when I left. Levy County commissioners
are charging 6 cents per gallon of gas. What would
happen if there were no pennies or nickels in the money
supply? I'm sure government would find a way to tax us.
Congressional impotence
I can't help but wonder what Congress is up to
these days. I was watching CNN the other day when an
extremely pretty economist remarked that moderates in
the Republican and Democratic Parties were beginning
to reach across the aisle to talk about a potential
compromise to solve our energy crisis. She said the
general terms of the compromise involved allowing more
offshore drilling, cracking down on speculators in oil
futures and fashioning some kind of deal on alternate
energies such as solar and wind.
But she sounded like it was a fluid situation at this
point. Anything could happen. But one thing is certain.
The Republicans on the far right and the Democrats on
the far left are still pouting in their respective comers
about previous battles where they got their feelings hurt.
They are refusing to talk to each other.
I guess I should remind the folks in Washington about
the approaching election in November. Members of
Congress will be expected by most sane people to rinse
off the party dirt that has soiled their hands for decades
and step into a neutral comer to negotiate a serious
reduction in gasoline prices at the pump and stabilize our
fossil fuel supplies for future years.
No small order, I grant you.
And it's probably too much to ask of people who earn
$169,300 annually and get top shelf health insurance free
of charge. Would the rich policymakers in Washington
do anything to lessen the financial burdens of the poor
and middle income? Like lowering the price of gasoline?
Probably not. But I'm asking anyway. Give us all a break
on gas prices. Please.
Every now and then I read stories where economists
say oil prices may just plummet overnight to $10 a barrel.
I can't wait for that to happen, but I won't hold my
breath. There's nothing wrong with hoping for the highly
improbable. And anything can happen in an election year.
The bottom could drop out of oil prices tomorrow, And
Elvis may show up at Graceland for one last concert.


Coal to fuel
I read a June 23 story on BrookesNews.com about the
potential for converting coal through gasification and
liquefaction into synthetic diesel and jet grade kerosene.
The story said this is great news for the United States,
which sits on 270 billion tons of recoverable coal and
leads the world in reserves. "To put it in perspective, U.S.
Coal deposits contain more energy than that 'of all the
planet's oil reserves put together. So vast is their potential
that at a standard conversion rate of two barrels of liquids
per one metric ton of coal, America's fuel needs would be
taken care of for well over a century," the store) sai,,.
The BrookesNews.com story we Lon toi-ta,, iat ,
Germany-built-5-eeal-to-liquid laets-to-beost-its-fuel
supplies during World War II. By 1944, the Nazi war
machine was producing 144,000 barrels of synthetic fuels
per day, enough to cover half of its wartime needs. The
story said two decades later South Africa began using
the same technology to soften the hardships of Apartheid
isolation. The technology went into mothballs, however,
because of cost. Historically the cost of producing a
gallon of synthetic fuel was higher than what it would
fetch on the market. Conversion becomes profitable, the
story said, when crude oil passes $55 a barrel. Crude oil
is now selling for more than $120 per barrel in the 2008
market.
Let me caution that the general rule of thumb applies
here. If something sounds too good to be true, it usually
is. Despite that fact, I think the federal government
should do some serious soul searching on the subject
of coal gasification and liquefaction. That means doing
objective research on the economics and environmental
impacts of producing our own energy at home through the
use of coal. We currently buy 70 cent of our oil abroad
from countries that don't particularly like us, so why not
consider American coal.
The Pickens Plan
I have to admit that $4 gasoline has brought
entrepreneurs to the forefront. Oilman T. Boone Pickens
is appearing on national television commercials urging
viewers to support his plan to wean the United States
from the use of foreign oil by switching to natural gas to
power our personal vehicles and increasing our reliance
on wind energy. He said his plan could cut oil imports by
38 percent.
The "Pickens Plan" would reportedly entail a hefty
investment of $1 billion in wind farms on a breezy strip
of landscape stretching from Texas to North Dakota,
according to a July 9 story in the Los Angeles Times. The
wind power would replace the natural gas now used to
generate electricity. The country currently gets about 22
percent of its electricity from natural gas, the story said.
With all that natural gas freed up, the story said millions
of vehicles that now run on gasoline could be powered by
natural gas.
The story went on to say that Pickens and his business
partners are investing an estimated $12 billion to build
the world's largest wind farm in Texas. I figure they
could probably harness all the hot air in Washington too
and make billions. But let me get back to Pickens. The
Times story added that Pickens' hedge fund, BP Capital,
is invested in a variety of natural gas companies. He also
sits on the board of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., North
American's largest provider of natural gas.
The inference is that Pickens obviously stands to gain
from his promotion of wind and natural gas power. But
more power to him if it works in his favor. It may take
someone of Pickens stature to turn the crisis into profits.
I say this because I know members of Congress are
busy fighting over party doctrine and wringing their hands
about the energy crisis. They all may need mental health
counseling and hand surgery by the time the November
election arrives.

TALLAHASSEE Chiefland made a name for itself in
Tallahassee over the weekend, finishing runnersup in the state
Babe Ruth All-Stars Tournament for players 15 and under.
In the end, the team from Levy County could not handle a
talented squad from Tallahassee, losing twice to the eventual
champs, including the championship game in sweltering conditions
Sunday. Tallahassee won 12-2 over an exhausted Chiefland team,
which had to win three times in one day to take the title.
Chiefland won the first in impressive fashion, beating Fort
Caroline, out of Jacksonville, 6-1. Brent Slaughter collected three
hits in the game, including a home run over the left field fence on
the second pitch of the game. Travis Wain followed with a two-run
double moments later, and Chiefland led 3-0.
That would be more than enough for Chiefland starting pitcher
Jacob Reidy, who confounded Fort Caroline hitters all game long.
The right hander scattered a half dozen Fort Caroline hits and was
" never really in trouble until the final innings.
Chris Bobo doubled in the fifth and scored on a single by Jordon
Flores his team's only run. Fort Caroline threatened again in the

Si This year the Williston Horseman's Association almost had to hold
tl~eir Awards Banquet outside, at the Horseman's Park. However they
were able to find relief at the newly completed Recreation Hall at the

Blum ignites Bronson Motor Speedway with performance


The rains stayed away last Saturday Night at Bronson Motor Speedway providing
a great night for racing. A good crowd of race fans was on hand, including the Belnap
Family Reunion who had folks from all over the United States and even some family from
SWitzerland! Thanks to the Belnap Family for making Bronson Motor Speedway a part
of their festivities!
The awesome action continued in the Limited Sportsman Feature this week. High
Spring's Matt Blum, in his Reno Plumbing-Shop Gator Mania.Com machine started
in the fifth position and charged his way through the field to take over the lead from
Ganesville's William Edwards, who started on the pole and led the first 15 laps of the 30 lap
feature. Blum had plenty of competition with Inglis's Mike Baker in the A-1 Automotive
0,machine right on his bumper. The caution was displayed only once as Chiefland's
Slbiton Bowers got into the 08 of Edwards. In a great showing of sportsmanship, Bowers
stopped and advised track officials he was at fault. This gave Edwards his spot back and
sclit Bowers to the rear of the field. Bowers would then race his way back to finish third,
wtth Baker taking second and Blum once again in Victory Lane.


Dunnellon's Brent Cooper continued his winning ways in the Super Stock Feature,
winning over Bronson's Tommy Ausbum. Ausbum would lead the first five laps before
Cooper would power past him for another win.
Thunder Stock action heated up as Inverness's Steve Hise came up to visit and took
home the victory over Larry Welter Sr and Howard Brody.
In Hornet Action, Front Wheel Drive Feature First William O'Quinn brought out a new
car and took it to victory lane on its maiden voyage! In the Rear Wheel Drive Feature
Michael Vorsek powered the No. 4 Mustang to victory lane and thanked his friend Mike
Baker Jr for loaning him his ride for the evening.
This Saturday Night July 26 Bronson Motor Speedway will host its Politicians
Rally, plus a full night of racing. Over 20 candidates have pledged to come speak to the
fans, so come out and meet these fine folks vying to serve the citizens of Levy County
and the state of Florida! Adult admission is only $10 and Kids 11 and Under get in free.
Grandstands open at 5:30 p.m. and racing begins at 7:30 p.m.. For more information call

nd in Babe Ruth 15u
later, Hunter Gray lined a single to left field, but Chiefland left
fielder Kaleb Caplin's throw to the plate nailed Marin to end the
game.
Overall, it was a good game for Reidy, and a good tournament
for Chiefland, said Head Coach Kyle Pamell.
"Jacob looked strong against Fort Caroline," he said. "We had
some really good defense behind him too. Slaughter (at shortstop)
was all over the field. And Kaleb threw that runner out to end the
game. So we played well in the field."
Chiefland finished with a 3-2 record in the tournament, beating
Fort Caroline, Wakulla and Lake City, but losing to eventual
champion Tallahassee twice.
Battling stifling heat in the championship game Sunday,
' Chiefland found it could not overcome Tallahassee starting pitcher
Miller Jones. Jones" allowed just four hits and 'one run in five
innings.
Still, Chiefland trailed 2-0 in the fifth inning, and cut the lead
in half when Parrish Parnell drove home Alden Davis, who had
doubled down the right field line.
But Tallahassee scored 10 times in the bottom of the inning to
win going away. The champs recorded only one out in the inning,
on a sacrifice bunt.

Livestock reports

Ellisville, Fla.


By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

With great natural resources and the efforts of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and
responsible anglers, Florida is home to some of the highest-
quality, most-diverse fishing in the world. The results are
like a well-chummed fishing hole, attracting anglers who
vote for their favorite fisheries with their best cast and
hard-earned cash. It has also earned Florida the title of
"Fishing Capital of the World."
The latest national statistics show Florida has 2.8
million resident anglers, while annually attracting 885,000
tourists who fish here. As a result, Florida's economy
benefits by a whopping billion dollars in direct sales. And
even though Texas has more inland water area (5,056
square miles vs. 4,672 for Florida) and people (22.9 million
vs. 17.7 million from the 2006 Census data), Florida has
more resident anglers and more than four times as many
tourist anglers (885,000) than Texas (218,000).
With summer vacations in full swing (or cast, as the case
may be), and gas prices restricting travel, we will likely
see more anglers from neighboring states and those along
the 1-10, 1-95 and 1-75 corridors coming to wet a line in
our prolific waters. Moreover, more Floridians are likely
to stay within the state borders to conserve fuel and avoid
nonresident fishing license fees. A resident freshwater
or saltwater license only costs $17 and is valid for 365
days from date of purchase. Since the average number of
fishing trips per angler in 2006 was 17.2 days, with many
fishing trips lasting four or more hours, fishing remains
an exceptional recreational value, even without catching
dinner and bringing it home.
Florida earned the title "Fishing Capital of the
World" by coupling its great resources with responsible
management of those resources by the FWC. Anglers will
be coming in abundance to test their skills, and we hope
to get them to try out some new fishing opportunities. By
targeting a wide variety of species and spreading anglers
out across the state rather than over-fishing historically
publicized locations, we can lessen the strain on any
specific fishery and help promote sustainable use.
You can help keep Florida the fishing capital by
following sound conservation practices and encouraging
others to do so as well. It takes only a small effort to make
a big difference, by following a few key standards:
Promote, through personal example, ethical behavior
in the use of aquatic resources.
Value and respect the aquatic environment and all
jjv g. tings. ,,,, I UV 6
,,., *, Avoid spillingiand never dump pollutants, such as gas
or oil.
Keep fishing sites litter-free. Dispose of trash,
including worn lines, leaders and hooks, in appropriate
containers, and recycle when possible.
Purchase and keep current your fishing license. If you
are exempt, you may still purchase a license as an easy way
to contribute directly to conservation.
Take precautionary measures to prevent spread of
exotic plants and animals.
Learn and obey angling and boating regulations.
Treat other anglers, boaters and property owners with
courtesy and respect, and never trespass on private lands or
waters.

locally in January 2007. It covers roughly 15 square miles
throughout the county, with designated areas in Chiefland,
Williston, Bronson, and parts of Fanning Springs. The
organization needs the support of those municipalities,
along with the Board of County Commissioners, because
it works on a government budget. They have asked the
county for $13,166.64 in 2008, down from $15,366 a year
ago.
"The EZDAknows it is a tight budget year for everyone,"
Blair said. "The EZDA is the only incentive program within
the county. If we want to increase our tax base, we have to
attract businesses."
Blair pointed out that, with the new Tri-County
Hospital on the horizon, the program becomes even more
important.
"The EZDA is very attractive to the' Tri-County
Hospital," she said. "It will allow the hospital to take
advantage of millions of dollars of incentives. But you
don't have to spend millions to get money back. Any size
business can get money back as long as you are located
within the zone and spend the required amounts to get the
sales tax back from the State of Florida."
Blair pointed out that the EZDA not only attracts
businesses and growth to the area, but it does so while not
affecting Levy County's portion of the sales tax.
Among the businesses that have taken advantage of
the EZDA in Levy County are Little Caesar's Pizza,
Scoggins Chevrolet and Elite Properties Management
Group. Campbell's Seafood was the first business to take
advantage of the program in Bronson.

EZDA officials Pam Blair, (left) and Skipper Henderson (third from left) spoke to a group of Chiefland,
Rotary Club members, including Police Chief Robert Douglas, July 16 on the importance of the program. 9
Joining the discussion was Levy County Commissioner Tony Parker. Parker said county commissioners,
see the program favorably, and that, even though budget dollars are short, officials from towns within the'
county should as well.

County commissioners search


for elusive budget dollars

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

With gas tax revenues in short supply for next year, Levy County commissioners voted on
Tuesday to shift $319,000 of road department funding from construction to operations in an
effort to eliminate part of shortfall.
Gas taxes are in short supply because residents are buying less gasoline. County officials
say high gas prices are forcing people to conserve. The county road department operates
entirely off gas taxes collected in Levy County. The local 6 cent tax is imposed on every
gallon sold.
The county is shifting state money in the road department budget..The state gave the road
department $419,000 of money for "fiscally constrained" counties. The term refers to small
rural counties that lack a strong revenue base. The county will keep the remaining $100,000
for construction.
Shifting funds will shrink the original $700,000 revenue shortfall in the road department,
but it won't eliminate the entire problem, nor will it erase the $1.1 million revenue shortfall in
the county's ambulance service budget.
The county commission is in the process of developing its 2008-09 budget.
The county's emergency medical service department, or ambulance department, is funded
entirely by a special property assessment of $75 per improved parcel. But revenue from the
assessment isn't enough to cover the rising cost of fuel used by the ambulances. Commissioners
have not discussed raising the assessment.
Commissioners recently discussed the possibility of shutting down two ambulances
and laying-off their crews. The move would lead to 11 layoffs and reduce the number of
ambulances in Williston and Chiefland to one in each city.
The board on Tuesday also voted to make one humanitarian gesture for its employees.
Commissioners are anticipating a 5 percent increase in the Blue Cross Blue Shield health
insurance premium. They already pay for individual employee health insurance and a portion
of the family coverage. On Tuesday they voted to absorb the additional 5 percent health
insurance premium increase for families.
Commissioners were scheduled to meet Tuesday night in a budget workshop to discuss
where to find the money for the road department and emergency medical service. A property,
tax increase has never been considered by commissioners. The board has focused instead on
where to cut expenses.
County Coordinator Freddie Moody said while no decision has been made, he believes
the board may tap its $1.5 million reserve to balance the budget rather than force employee
layoffs. Commissioners won't have an opportunity to discuss the budget shortfall among
themselves until the workshop.
Commissioners have asked Sheriff Johnny Smith to consider cutting 5 percent from his
budget, but Moody said Smith indicated he would have to lay off seven people to cut that
much money from his $11.6 million spending plan.
Chief Deputy Mike Johnson confirmed that shaving 5 percent from the sheriff's budget
would result in seven layoffs. The sheriff instead is offering to cut his budget by $200,000.
"If we do $200,000, that would keep us from having to lay off anyone,"Johnson said.
If the sheriff's office were to lay off the last 10 people hired, Johnson said it would result
in a savings of $380,000. Six of those people work at the county jail.
Johnson, who has worked at the sheriff's office for 20 years, said times are difficult all over
the state and the sheriff's office is aware of that fact.
"I'm afraid if we don't do something, they'll do it for Us," Johnson said.
Johnson said the sheriff's office's gasoline bill jumped from about $33,000 to $47,000 in
one month. He said there is no relief in sight from $4 gasoline.
Smith said he is already looking at ways to adjust his department internally to cut $200,000
in expenses.
"We're gonna have to buckle down. Times are hard," Smith said. "We're going to step up
to the plate. We're going to do restructuring internally."
But commissioners have the option of using their reserves instead of laying-off employees,
and that may be the route the board takes.
Commissioners are expected to have spare cash to carry over from the current budget year
to the next one, but the money is not considered reserve funds and the county will need those
funds to pay the bills until tax dollars begin to flow again in the new budget year.
In other business:
State Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, was honored for his work representing small
counties, including Levy. The honor had been given to Dean by the Small County Coalition,
but he wasn't able to attend the ceremony. The plaque was presented instead at the Levy County
Commission meeting. Dean represents 13 counties and 10 of them are small counties.
Commissioners approved an ordinance rescinding comprehensive plan approval for
the L.R. Boyette subdivision west of Chiefland. The Florida Department of Community Affairs
said the project was urban sprawl. Boyette wanted to build a gated community. The ordinance
also acknowledged that the Levy County Dairy proposal for a high density development in the
same area had failed to win county approval.
