One of three targeted women

returns, then calls it quits

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

One of the three women targeted by a Postal Service
investigation resigned Monday after her first day back at
work and just three days after she was interviewed by the
postmaster in Gainesville.
Kim Poole had been on medical and annual leave since
May 29 when co-workers Debbie Hamberger and Bonnie
George were suspended without pay pending the outcome
of an internal investigation.
Hamberger, George and Poole were interviewed
separately by Postmaster Lisa Fletcher last Friday. George
said her interview with Fletcher lasted three-and-a-half
hours. Fletcher now has the option of firing George and
Hamberger or reinstating them.
Fletcher declined comment Tuesday. She said she
wasn't sure when she would be able to comment, except
she thought it would be sooner rather than later. However,
she said there was no timeline for a decision.
As for Poole's resignation, she said it was Poole's
personal decision and she would not comment. Poole could
not be reached for comment.
George said if they are fired, she and Hamberger would
continue their union appeal to the next stage, which would
be national arbitration.
The turmoil inside the Chiefland Post Office began when
postal inspectors gave Hamberger and Poole a memo on
May 29 placing them under emergency suspension without
pay. The investigators said George was escorted from the
Post Office that day pending further investigation, but they
did not say what she was being investigated for.
Later that afternoon, inspectors allege George,
Hamberger, Poole and a fourth female co-worker met at
Usher Forest. They claim George grabbed the fourth co-
worker by the waist and said she would throw her down and
beat her if she didn't shut her mouth. George, Hamberger
and Poole say there is no truth to the allegation.
George and Hamberger said they are whistleblowers
who are being punished for exposing mismanagement and
unethical conduct on the part of superiors at the Chiefland
Post Office.

J ayne Rocks survived her first
bout with breast cancer. The
treatment was tough. She was
relieved to think the disease
was under control, but it came back two
years later, this time in the other breast.
The second round of treatment has
begun, but with one difference. This
time Rocks will go through the cancer
therapy with the memory of Saturday's
motorcycle fund-raising bike ride in her
honor. It was the Jayne Rocks Bike Run
for Cancer.
Bikers from throughout the region
rode to six stops in Levy, Gilchrist and


Dixie Counties to generate funds for
Haven Hospice,'the Community Cancer
Center of North Florida (in Gainesville),
as well as for the continuing treatment of
Rocks. An estimated $2,500 was raised.
Final totals were not available.
Rocks and her husband, Keith, rode
the route with about 345 bikers, with
the ride ending at the Brick Grill in
Old Town. At the restaurant and bar,
her revamped 1974 Harley Davidson
Sportster 1000 was unveiled. Gulf Coast
Sledz of Chiefland donated time and
services to customize the bike with its
peanut tank and narrow fenders. He

Chiefland city commissioners lowered the property tax rate slightly
Monday and inched forward on the question of how to deal with the
potential threat of topless bars and other adult businesses moving into the
city.
Commissioners voted unanimously to lower the tax rate from 4.7536
mills to 4.75, a drop so slight that City Manager Grady Hartzog said it
would make no difference in the amount of revenue the city receives from
property taxation.
The tax rate remains tentative until commissioners give final approval
to the budget on Sept. 23. Commissioners have public hearings slated for
Sept. 9 and Sept. 23 to discuss the 2008-09 city budget of more than $3
million.
. The proposed property tax rate means the owner of a $100,000 home
with a homestead exemption on the first $25,000 of value and a second
homestead exemption on the third $25,000 of value, would pay city


property taxes of $237.50.
The suggestion to lower the rate slightly was made by Mayor Teal
Pomeroy.
Police Chief Robert Douglas managed to lower his budget request by
$14,248 from a week ago while still increasing patrolman salaries from
$327,202 to $330,651. His own salary, including longevity pay and a cost
of living increase will cost the city anradditional $1,712 next year.
The chief has not included in his budget, salary increases related to
the promotion of two of his officers, according to City Manager Grady
Hartzog.
Douglas made the adjustments in his budget by decreasing his request
for overtime pay from $20,000 to $15,000, decreasing the request for
repair and maintenance from $10,000 to $5,000, decreasing the request for
K-9 expenses from $4,000 to $3,000, and decreasing gas and oil expenses
from $75,600 to $67,200.
The fire department's budget increased by $6,000 from- the previous

Church group restores cemetery


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

The small family cemetery near Levyville, located on
private property a mile or so west of U.S. 27A and south of
Chiefland, had seen better days.
Tall grass, pesky weeds and stubborn brush ,had
essentially taken over, leaving the century-old plots
unsightly and damaged. Most of the headstones, belonging
to a family named Carter, had been uprooted and toppled,
with several broken in pieces in and around the graves.
But on July 23, a group of 12 people from Chiefland's
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints sought to
make things right again in the small cemetery, arriving in
trucks and carrying shovels and weedeaters and tools of
the trade.
Group leader Chuck Lloyd said the project serves the
church in a number of different ways.

The director of the Levy County Visitor's Bureau said
Friday that tourism is down a little from last year, and that's
not a good sign.
Speaking to the Greater Chiefland Area Chamber
of Commerce, Carol McQueen said tourism numbers
normally increase from year to year, and for the numbers
to be off, even a little, means tourism is slowing.
"That has to do with the economy and the price of gas,"
McQueen said.
McQueen said tourism is Florida's largest industry.
She encouraged chamber members to attend the Tap
Into Tourism summit in the conference center of Pine
Grove Baptist Church on Aug. 26. The summit is being
sponsored by The Pure Water Wilderness Chamber
Coalition, a partnership of chambers in Levy, Gilchrist and
Dixie counties.
The summit is for businesses in the tri-county area.
Speakers will explain the local tourism economy and talk
about the area's karst limestone ecology. Nature-based
tourism, or eco-tourism, brings the most visitors to the tri-
county.
McQueen said the governor's office is going green,
Gov. Charlie Crist is encouraging state employees to
patronize motels and hotels that are state certified as green
businesses, meaning they employ environmentally friendly
business practices.
In other chamber matters, Janet Minor, executive director
of the chamber, said nomination forms are available for
"Business of the Year." Call the chamber office at 493-1949
to obtain a form. The city's top business will be named at a
noon luncheon on Sept. 16.

It is a combination' of both. Plus, our church is big into
genealogy, so it helps in that area as well."
Lloyd said that by the looks of the headstones, many
dating back into the early and mid 1800s, the people buried
in the cemetery had helped settle the local area. That iri
itself, he said, provides a valuable lesson for the half dozen
boys.
"It helps them to learn to care about other people," he
said. "They are able to give service to them, particularly
the ones who were here in the past and settled things, the
ones that everyone has forgotten about."
Sixteen-year-old Peter Crane agreed.

Former. Monticello mayor

announces candidacy

for House District 10

Julie Conley, the first female Mayor of
Monticello, has announced her candidacy for
the State Legislative seat being vacated by
Representative Will Kendrick.
Julie is a third generation North Floridian
who grew up in Hamilton and Jefferson
counties. She has been a small business owner
and has spent her professional career working
to improve the quality of life for families in
North Florida.
As part of her campaign, Julie has adopted
the "workday" strategy of Senator Bob Graham
and is working a different job in each county of
-the District. So far, she has processed oysters
in Franklin County, worked as a waitress and
cook in Hamilton County, in a lumber yard in
Taylor County, in a library in Madison County,
in a nursing home in Dixie County, and in the
clam farming business in Levy County. She says
these "work days" give her new perspective and
insight on the issues and problems that district
residents face in their everyday lives.
Throughout her career, Julie Conley has
fought to bring jobs to North Florida and to
balance growth with environmental protection.
As your Representative, she will fight to
make health care affordable, to improve our
public schools and to lower property taxes and
insurance rates.

School Board endorses proposed millage rate, budget


Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

In the first oftwo scheduled public hearings, the Levy County School Board unanimously.
voted Monday to tentatively adopt a proposed 7.742 millage rate the same rate as last
year.
"I'm happy to report that we had to advertise a millage hearing and not a village
increase," said Director of Finance Robert Clemons.
Millage is the rate at which property is taxed to partially fund public education. Property
owners will pay $7.742 for every one thousand dollars of property value. This means
that a homeowner with property valued at $125,000 will pay $774 after the homestead
exemption.
The tax will raise nearly $19 million of the $69.4 million school budget that will
provide education for an anticipated 6,127 students in the county, according to Clemons.
The projected 2008-09 budget was outlined in a 51-page proposal that details personnel,
facilities, transportation and school lunch outlays.
"It's just an outline and of course it's subject to change, but this is a beginning point,
a place to start," said Clemons. "The budget tells a story. If you understand numbers and
you look through it you can see what is happening."
Superintendent Cliff Norris said the budget will start out $2 million less than last year.


Levy county Scnool boara members aebate resources during a meeting
Monday. The board voted to keep the previous year's millage rate.
"That's a major hit for our school system," he said.
Copies of the proposed budget are available at the district office.
The final public hearing on the millage rate and budget will be held Sept. 15 at 7 pm at
the district office, located in Bronson at 480 Marshburn Dr.

George said they have refused to bend under the pressure of a postal investigation
because they haven't done anything wrong.
"It's all about beating down three strong women," George said.
The Chiefland City Commission decided not to get involved in the case Monday night
after City Commissioner Sammy Cason asked if the nation's postmaster general should
be contacted.
"I don't know what's going on over there, if it's double talk or what," Cason said.
"Something or other isn't right."
Cason added later that writing to the postmaster general would "get their attention."
City Attorney Norm Fugate responded that the three women have union representation
and an attorney to defend them.
When Mayor Teal Pomeroy asked Police Chief Robert Douglas what he thought,
Douglas said it was an internal investigation by the Postal Service. He suggested the city
stay out of it.
Cason had attended Friday's Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce meeting
where chamber member Shirley Lanier urged residents to stop by George and Hamberger's
petition site opposite the post office and talk to them. She said once people talk to the two

women, they could make up their own minds about what is happening.
"I just want people to come up and support them," Lanier said.
Cason said it was Lanier's comments that prompted him to suggest the city contact the*
postmaster general.
George and.Hamberger have collected 1,150 signatures on petitions that call for theil
reinstatement, but George said if they are fired, that changes everything.
"Then it's going from petitioning to picketing," said,Jimmy George, her husband. j
George said attorney Rod Smith will get involved only if they are fired or charged with
a crime.
As for union representation, she said union steward Mara-Lynn Kontrafouris has beer
told by postal officials not to represent her and Hamberger. George said Kontrafouris ha;
actually made a statement against them, which means the union representation hasn't beert
all that great. Union President John Pruitt has been assigned to be their representative.
George said she appreciates city commissioners discussing the possibility of contacting
the postmaster general. She said she would still encourage the city to get involved. She
said people should realize that this is their post office and they have a stake in how it's
run.
"We are from this community. We are from Levy County. We want to represent the?
people who do business with us," George said. .I
Hamberger and George said they are senior postal workers and they did their jobs
efficiently and effectively, and their actions were always intended to be in the best interests
of their postal customers.
"We dedicated our lives to the Chiefland Post Office," Hamberger said.

The Levy County Journal The County Paper, Est.
y


Akins, from Page 1
but he said the rules, regulations and laws governing the
property appraiser's office are far different than when he
first took office. He said he obeys the law.
: "It's safer to follow the law.. That does away with
discretion," he said. "It's not the same as it was 16 years
ago as far as rules and regulations and the way we're
audited by the state."
Akins said the job of appraising property has changed
considerably since 1989. That was the year the Florida
Department of Revenue gave property appraisers in the
state a copy of a grand jury presentment that said some
counties were valued too low and there were inequities in
the distribution of taxes to public schools. The state began
inspecting and auditing tax rolls more closely. Akins said
ihe presentment changed the way appraisers did business.
But Barker points to a decision by Akins in the mid
1 990s to sue the county Value Appraisal Board as evidence
Akins isn't pro-taxpayer. The VAB is an appointed board
that hears property tax appeals.
Akins responded that he sued the VAB that year because
the VAB had "acted outside the law" in lowering property
values. He said the DOR joined him in the lawsuit against
the VAB. Akins won the lawsuit and the VAB's decisions
were overturned.
"The courts said we were correct in our assessment,"
Akins said.
Barker and Phillips are also sympathetic to clam farmers
in Cedar Key and believe they should be considered
agricultural operations for tax purposes. Akins said he
doesn't disagree, but said no one has given him guidelines
on how to do it. He said it's not allowed under current
law.
Akins said he attended a meeting of clam farmers, the
Florida Department of Revenue, economics professors from
the University of Florida and the Florida Farm Bureau.
"We went through all of this and nobody has told us how
to do it," he said. Akins added that there has been several.
attempts in the Florida Legislature to give clam farms an
agricultural classification to lower their land taxes, but
none have succeeded.
Akins added, "I told the people in Cedar
Key I'm willing to work with them and the
Legislature to come up with something that's fair."
He said there are few clam farming areas in the state, and
it dilutes their political clout in Tallahassee.
Regarding his office manager, Mary Golding, Akins
said he gives Golding permission to attend court hearings
and county commission meetings. He said she signs out
and provides valuable help to citizens.
"People come to the courthouse and they are looking for
someone to tell them what to do and how to go about it,"
Akins said. "I allow her to do it." Phillips doesn't see what
her outside-the-office activities in the courthouse have to
do with her job as office manager.
Phillips also claims arrogance is a problem in Akins'
office. As evidence, Phillips cites his request of Akins in
September 2007 for his three previous budgets. Phillips
said Akins did not respond to the request until he filed legal
paperwork in January asking a judge to issue a court order
requiring Akins to hand over the documents. He said the
judge had to force Akins to respond.
Akins said he remembers receiving Phillips' request for
the.three budgets, but he was busy with tax related matters
at the time and did not have time to respond. Akins said
when he received the judge's order, he provided Phillips
with the three budgets in well advance of the deadline. He
said it had nothing to do with arrogance.

Barker, from Page 1
selling the business in 2007.
Barker surprised a lot of people when he left a good paying
job as director of the county's emergency management
agency to buy Chiefland Aluminum. He wanted to try
something different, he said. He had always wanted to own
a business.
"It was a God thing. I had turned my life over to the Lord
and I was trying to live my life in that manner," Barker said.
"I had an opportunity to buy Chiefland Aluminum and I
did."
The business world was tough at first. Barker said he
lived from paycheck to paycheck. He learned what it took
to make a payroll, and pay the insurance and federal taxes.
Things got better over time and he had three crews working
at one point.
As a businessman, he said it almost seemed like he got
penalized for trying to do things right. He carried worker's
compensation insurance for his employees and liability
insurance. He wanted to do it all the right way.
He said the aggravation of taxation and regulation was
part of what drove him to seek office. The second event that
triggered his interest in running against Akins, he said, was
when he bought a piece of property for $85,000 to relocate
Chiefland Aluminum. When the property tax bill arrived
that fall, the value of the property had risen to $125,000,
Barker said.
He said he contacted Akins' office and scheduled an
appointment. Staff members met with him.
"I really didn't think I got a good explanation. It was
more like a verbal smoke screen. I started thinking we
need a change," Barker said.
Barker said he spent a great deal of time in prayer as he
contemplated running for the property appraiser's office and
he also asked what other people thought.
He said he realizes the Florida Department of Revenue
sets the rules and regulations for appraising land, but he said
the local property appraiser doesn't represent the DOR.
"The appraiser has the ability to make decisions," Barker
said. Not everything is cut and dry. I think when the rules
and regulations set by the state that govern the appraisals
in Levy County are unfair, the appraiser needs to go to
Tallahassee and fight."
Barker said he would not do anything that is illegal,
unethical or unfair. He said his drive in life will be to
represent the people of Levy County who elected him.
"My first priority in life is Jesus Christ. My second is my
family and the third will be my service to the people of Levy
County," Barker said.
Barker said Akins has said in the past few years he
planned to retire, but now he's running again
"I'm not going to run lown Francis Akins. He's a ,ood
man," Barker said. "I do feel I will be a better leader for the
people of Levy County."

Phillips, 30, who was raised in Cedar Key and was about
10 years old when Akins first took office, said he believes
it's time for a change in the appraiser's office. He said the
office needs someone who will fight for property owners.
"This is Francis Akins' 20th year and it is time for a change,"
Phillips said. "It is time to elect someone who will work for
them and not just sit back and collect a paycheck."
Phillips, who said he has worked in the farm clam industry'
in Cedar Key, said he would reclassify clam farming land in
Cedar Key as aquaculture, making the farmers eligible for
property tax exemptions. He said Akins has refused to do
this.
On the subject of arrogance, Phillips said Akins refused
for four months to give him copies of his previous three
budgets. Phillips said it wasn't until he paid $250 and filled
out legal papers asking a circuit judge to order Akins to' give
him the budgets that Akins 'complied with his request. The
judge issued the order. Akins provided the budgets.
"That shows the amazing and blatant disregard for
following the law," Phillips said. "I had to get a judge to
issue an order requiring him to produce the records. I don't
think he was taking me seriously. That's my opinion."
Phillips said he has read the Florida laws governing
how the property appraiser operates and he said Akins has
flexibility, or discretion, to set values. Phillips said that's why
values are so high county-wide. He said the entire county
needs to be re-assessed and he plans to do that to lower
values. Phillips said the Florida Department of Revenue
sets the rules and regulations, but property appraisers decide
how to apply them.
He said he also plans to fire Akins' office manager, Mary
Golding, whom he says attends every Tuesday county
commission meeting and regularly sits through court hearings
unrelated to her job. He said Akins pays her $48,000 a year
to manage his office, but she spends much of her time out
of the office.
Phillips said he wants to bring more discipline to the
appraiser's office. He said he has a good work ethic and he
believes employees in the appraiser's office should do the
same.
He said he also wants to bring about a better attitude in
the appraiser's office concerning customer service. He said
getting rid of the arrogance will be helpful, and ensuring that
people get a chance to talk to someone will help as well.
"A lot of people have said they're rude (in the appraiser's
office). They won't talk to you," he said. "Francis won't talk
to you. That is the first thing that I will change. I will enforce
a friendly customer service policy."

A Bronson man was sentenced to seven and a half
years in state prison on July 16 for converting stolen
credit cards and personal checks to his own use.
William John Bird, Jr., 43, pleaded no contest to six
counts of felony larceny for forging checks belonging
to John Hiers of Williston.
He was sentenced by Circuit Judge Stan Morris to
92 months in state prison and given 96 days credit for
time served.
Bird wrote two $600 checks and a $475 check using
stolen credit card convenience checks, court records
said. He also used Hiers' personal checks to write

Reginald Rayford, 4092 N.E. 210th Ave., was
sentenced July 16 by Circuit Judge Stan Morris to five
years in state prison, with' credit for 172 days served,
after pleading no contest to charges of trafficking in
heroin and distributing other dangerous street drugs
from a shed off County Road 318.
The Levy County Drug Task Force sent undercover
agents to buy powder cocaine from Rayford at the
shed May 16-17 last year. Rayford took money from
the agents and poured powder cocaine from a big
baggie to a small one during the transactions, court
records said.
On July 6, 2007, the task force served a search
warrant on the property Rayford was using to sell
drugs. The property was known as "The Land."In
the shed, investigators found 17.6 grams of the drug
oxycodone in a safe. Rayford knew the combination
and opened the safe for drug investigators.
When Rayford himself was searched, drug
investigators found six oxycodone pills, 17 pills of
morphine and Alpazolone in his clothing, records
said.
Frank Freitas Higganbotham, 31, 11371 N.W. 110th

discovered Jan. 27, 2006 when Levy County sheriff's
deputies were assisting Citrus County deputies in
the capture of William Caruthers, who was wanted
on charges in Citrus County and was believed to be
living with Higganbotham, court records said.
As soon as deputies arrived and Higganbotham
came to the door they noticed a clear jar containing "bi-
layers of liquid" commonly seen in methamphetamine
labs. The jars are called "head jars." Higganboth told
officers that:Caruthers was in the home. As they
walked inside, Higganbotham broke the "head jar."
Inside the home, an officer saw Higganbotham
emptying a second jar. The liquid smelled of ammonia,
a chemical used to manufacture methamphetamine,

Sheriff's deputies capture

three illegal immigrants
Three illegal immigrants were arrested by the Levy County Sheriff's Office July 21
after a homeowner caught them breaking into his residence in Chiefland, a sheriff's arrest
report said.
Virginia Danielle Rodriquez, 18, and her husband, Antonio C. Rodriquez, 23, of 10490
N.W. 20t Ave., Chiefland, were arrested on charges of burglary and criminal mischief.
Belinda Barraza, 22, 706 E. Park Ave., Chiefland, was arrested as a principal in the first
degree to burglary.
Sheriff's investigator Mark Garcia said the victim, Leonel Garcia Mendoza, 7050
N.W. 165th St. Chiefland, saw Virginia Rodriguez in his. yard, confronted her and told her
he was going to call the law. She had been posted as a lookout for her husband, who had
forced his way into the home.
Mrs. Rodriguez told Mendoza he was an illegal resident and they could do whatever
they wanted in his house. She was wrong. Mendoza is a legal resident. When Antonio
Rodriquez and Belinda Barraza came from around the house, Mendoza tried to stop them
from leaving in a car. Virginia Rodriquez pulled forward and struck, the victim's carport,
causing more than $300 damage, the report said.
Bond for Virginia Rodriquez was set at $10,000, and bond for Barraza at $7,500. Bond
for Antonio Rodriquez was $7,500.
Barazza was also arrested, in a separate case for the April 16 burglary of a different
home at 11250 N.E. 61st St., Bronson. A sheriff's report said the victim, Adrian Rincon,
said DVDs, CDs, clothing, watches, jewelry, loose change and an electric guitar were

My debate with a liberal


By Rick Burnham
Editor

T his column was supposed to be all about technology. In fact, it had been written
and tucked away nicely in a file on my computer, ready for publication.
And then came my conversation with Debra.
Debra is the well-to-do sister-in-law of a very good friend of mine, an elitist
type whose nose tends to point toward the North Star on most days. Our paths crossed
recently at a birthday party for my friend in Tallahassee.
Debra thinks that if you are white and you do not vote for Barack Obama, then you are
most surely racist. I take issue with that. More later.
We were all sprawled out in the living room of the home, having consumed a massive
meal of fried chicken with all the fixings. There were mashed potatoes, cream corn, acre
peas, and cornbread. It was wonderful.
Having polished off my fair share of said meal, I was just about to doze off in a very
large and comfortable chair when a commercial came on the television. It was a political
ad, touting the virtues of Barack Obama, the presumed nominee of the Democratic Party
for the office of President of the United States. His voice resonated around the room, with
words like "hope" and "change" getting special emphasis. He also spoke briefly about
"hope" and "change," before moving on to the more immediate and critical concerns of
"hope" and "change."
The commercial had no sooner ended when Debra spoke up in a worship-like and
endearing tone.
"I hope he gets elected."
Now, I do not consider myself to be confrontational. I am not usually the
argumentative type. I rarely engage in debate, regardless of the subject or occasion. But
debates with a liberal are different. These are people who are generally devoid of all
reason and logic. Debating a liberal is much like shooting fish in a barrel. Even I can do it.
So I reached over and took a big swig of my ice tea, and jumped in with both feet.
"Why?"
Debra was drinking wine. Actually, she was not so much drinking it but sniffing it
and then sloshing it around in her mouth. Something about aroma and a bouquet, or
something. She stopped long enough to answer.
"Because we need change," she said with just the absolute tiniest bit of anger in her
voice.
"What exactly is he going to change?" I asked, reaching for more tea.
"Everything."
"Everything?"
"Everything."
The tea was sweet, and I took another big gulp before my next reply.
"What, exactly, about your life needs changing?"
"My life doesn't need changing, but there are lot of people who need help in this
country," she said, and had some more wine.
The half dozen other people in the room drew silent, perhaps anticipating a storm on
the horizon. A fly landed on the coffee table, reserving a front row seat right next to the
peanuts. My friend threw a glance in my direction, as if to say "stop it."
But I couldn't.


House speaker needs to


"You can't really make dramatic changes in the lives of one group of people without
affecting others," I said. "Look at it this way. You and your husband both studied
diligently in school, worked hard to get ahead, and are now reaping the benefits.
Personally, I don't think it is fair for you to have your standard of living lowered at the
expense of others."
She took another sip. Actually, this time it was a gulp.
"The wealthy are going to have to start paying their fair share," she said. "It won't be
us."
"Oh but it will," I said. "The top one percent in this country already pay 40 percent of
the taxes. At some point, some of the burden is going to fall to the middle class. Do you
have any idea of the scope of the social programs Mr. Obama has planned?"
Her eyes were now wide and bright, and I thought for a second she was going to take a
bite out of the wine glass.
"The wealthy can pay more," she said. "They should pay more."
"Any idea what it is going to cost. to provide health care for 20 million illegal aliens?"
I asked.
"It is time that we elected an African American to be president of this country," she
said. "If you don't vote for him you are a racist."
All the heads in the room turned to me. It was like they were watching a tennis match.
I returned serve.
"So in'this election, if you vote for the person of your own race, you are a racist?" I
asked. She started to say "yes," and then her tongue put on the brakes. It sounded like
rubber on asphalt.
"No, just if you are white," she said as her face turned slightly red. "It doesn't work the
other way."
'SAnd why not?" The fly took off from the coffee table and landed on her shoulder.
"Because of slavery," she said. "Perhaps you have heard of it."
I fought off the urge to ask her how many slaves and slaveholders were expected to
vote in the election, and settled for something a little more reasonable.
"You are going to put the future of the country on the line for something that happened
150 years ago? Personally, I think the leader of the free world should be elected based on
his values rather than his race."
At that moment the light shined through yonder window and picked up some of the
highlights of her soft, shoulder-length hair. I could suddenly see what my friend's brother
must have seen in her back in the early days of their relationship. Then she opened her
mouth and I thought to myself that he needed his head examined.
"He's intelligent and articulate," she said.
"And Marxist. Don't forget about that," I replied.
"Let's play Scrabble!" said my friend, the birthday boy, suddenly jumping into the
conversation.
Things toned down considerably after that. Debra drew a nice round of applause after
she correctly spelled "change," and the group was equally appreciative when I managed
"liberal." Debra and her husband left not long after the game was done, and I watched as
they climbed into their BMW.
"She'll be driving a Ford Escort the next time I see her," I thought to myself. "Bet
she'll get it then." Didn't say it though. I'm just not that confrontational.
Want change? Careful what you ask for.


get


in touch with redity


Terry Witt
Staff Writer

.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California is the
highest ranking elected Democrat in the
nation, and the first female House speaker.
If the president and vice president were
incapacitated or died, she would become President. She is
a beautiful and sexy grandma. No doubt she is extremely
intelligent.
But she apparently lives in a cave.
When CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked her on national
television why she thought only about 30 percent of the
American people gave the U.S. Congress a good approval
rating, Pelosi responded that people are upset about the
Democrats' failure to end the war in Iraq. She was dead
wrong.
No doubt the war is important. I want to end it as soon
as possible, so long as we don't abandon the wobbly
government we set up over there and throw away all our
gains. Besides, Iraq needs to sell us some cheap oil when
it gets on its feet. Not many people remember that Iraqi oil
was supposed to fund the war. That.never happened.
The Iraq war is not the powerful political issue it once
was. Our collapsing national economy is now the main
focus of most Americans. Pelosi apparently doesn't buy $4
gasoline or know that milk costs almost $5 per gallon. She
lives in the same glass bowl as other prominent national
politicians. We can see them. They can see us. But Pelosi
and her peers in Congress no longer hear the cries of the
common working man and woman, the small business
person, the small farmer, or the elderly. They don't feel the
financial pain of older Americans on fixed incomes who
can barely fill the gas tanks of their cars or put food on the
table.
I told a friend of mine that Pelosi needs to see"'a


psychiatrist. She is no longer in touch with reality. She
is delusional if she thinks the American Congress is
unpopular because of the war in Iraq. I'm sure the war .
will be a factor in the coming election. The military's
plan to topple Saddam Hussein was great. What happened
afterward was a disaster. It wasn't until most Sunni and
Shia leaders agreed to stop shooting at Americans that
we began making any progress toward a lasting peace.
American soldiers did their job fearlessly, magnificently
and with great efficiency in spite of the inept civilian
leadership in the White House, but any long-term solution
in Iraq will require a combination of deft political
maneuvering in Washington and intelligent use of military
power by our generals.
But I must say Pelosi astounds me. If the most powerful
Democrat on the planet doesn't know that gasoline prices
and a failing economy are the main political issues in
the November election, the Democrats won't have a
snowball's chance in a hot oven of retaining control of
Congress in November. I say that with one caveat. The
Republicans seem to be trapped in the same leadership
vacuum as Pelosi when it comes to $4 gasoline. They want
to drill off shore, but they make no promises it will lower
gasoline prices, because it won't. No wonder Pelosi is
ignoring the subject. The Republicans are also giving the
issue the cold shoulder.
My recommendation is for Democrats and Repubicans to:
M Pass legislation shutting down speculators in oil
futures
Pass legislation to allow more off-shore drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico, provided the new oil rigs are built to
withstand a category five hurricane and all oil tanker ships
are equipped with double liners and are run by federally
certified captains.
Pass legislation giving entrepreneurs tax incentives
to begin converting coal to synthetic fuel, and provide tax


incentives for entrepreneurs to develop large-scale solar
and wind energy projects to decrease the country's reliance
on fossil fuels to generate electricity.
Pass legislation giving American car and truck
buyers major tax incentives to purchase hybrid vehicles,
hydrogen vehicles or electric vehicles. Make it worth our
while to buy these vehicles and pass legislation to create
refueling depots for the alternative fuels.
At the same time, members of Congress need to
officially remove their heads from the sand and follow the
lead of entrepreneurs like T. Boone Pickens. Pickens is
developing one of the largest windmill farms in the nation
to produce electricity that can replace fossil fuels. I call it
a windmill farm for lack of a better term. Pickens knows
better than Congress that it's time to wean ourselves from
fossil fuels.
Course, I always hold out hope that politicians in
Washington will pull a rabbit from their hat just before the
November elections and prevail upon the oil barons and
thieving speculators to drop gas prices to a buck fifty per
gallon. If that happened, the reduction would last about
three months. Then, someone in the Middle East would
begin threatening war. The American oil speculators would
take their cue and use the threat of war as an excuse to jack
up crude oil prices again, and we would be back in the
same boat.
Washington has become so distant from the American
people that it's hard to figure out what might happen
next. The only thing certain is that the U.S. States House
of Representatives, the U.S. Senate and the President
rarely act in the best interests of working class Americans
anymore. If you doubt what I say, take a look at what
you're paying at the gas pumps and ask yourself why
Congress and the President are virtually silent on the issue
and why Democrats and Republicans are not working
together to solve the gasoline price crisis.


Letters to the editor


Dock shock
My husband was excited as a kid fixing to be let loose in a candy store when he heard
Cedar Key dock was about to be reopened. It's been about four years no thanks to
Katrina that any fishing poles have graced the dock with their presence. With bait and
fishing poles in tow, we took a run down there this past Monday.
We saw a couple people fishing so we thought we would wet our line, so to speak, even
though part of the dock wasn't finished. I have never seen so much metal in all my life. It
could be a fisherman's nightmare if he were caught on the dock and thunder and lightning
shows up before he could get off the docks. Otis Redding sang about "sitting on the dock
of the bay," but I don't think he would have liked sitting on this particular dock in such
weather.
I saw a James Bond movie once where this fella had as much metal in his mouth that
Cedar Key had on the dock. Both of them could be in trouble if lightning struck! I read in
the newspaper that they were building a handicap ramp on the dock, which was great, but
once we were there we both stood trying to figure out which way to go or where the start
was. We weren't sure where we would end up once we got to the top.
It was like going through a maze. A very difficult maze! We gave it the old college
tiy. By the time we got to the end of it, which was the dock, we were all worn out. The
benches they had all scattered around came in handy that time. The candy store, or I


should say the dock, that he was excited about was a big let down, or I should say a "milk
dud!" I think my husband will continue to brave the gnats at the barge canal instead ofthe
maze and all that metal at the Ceaar Key dock. No sir, it's not like the good ole days no
more!

Love, integrity
I would like to address several issues; first being the unbelievable support and love
we.have received from the public. People have told me God is love; well, I'm here to
tell you that I've seen God through the eyes of the citizens of Levy County.
The second issue is integrity. Is it for sale? I have learned for some people it is,
for some are willing to sacrifice their integrity to save their job. Even to the extent
of perjury so damaging about a coworker as to be termed defamation of someone's
character and the possibility of legal retribution. Even in today's society and with
the economy and times being so difficult, to sacrifice your integrity is hard for me to
understand. How can a person get up every day and look themselves in the mirror,
knowing what they have done?

Hit the weight rooom!


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor


Can you believe it is less
than four weeks till local high
school football kicks off?
I recently asked a retired,
and well-respected local
high schoolfootball coach a
simple question. Do you think
high school football players
today are better players than the high school football
players of the '60s and '70s? His answer was quick
and he left no doubt in my mind that he knew what
he was talking about.
His answer was a quick no, with an even faster
clarification. The kids playing high school football
today are certainly much bigger, stronger, faster,
and tremendously more athletic than the players of
the '60s and '70s, but they lack one key ingredient.
Physical toughness. Players today have replaced raw
physical toughness with size, strength, speed, and
greater athleticism, the coach said. He added that he
would take physical toughness any day.
He's right physical toughness is an intangible
quality that is vital to every team. But, more and
more, so is physical strength. And that is where the
school weight room comes into play.
The weight room has been one of the biggest
improvements for all student athletes in the last
10 years or so. All the local teams I have covered
in the high schools are simply loaded with some
outstanding athletes in the sports they play. They
become even better during their high school careers
because of the time and dedication they expend in
the school weight rooms.
The athletes today spend countless hours in the
weight room as they fine tune their already muscular
body into a stronger and faster version.
The schools that have been slow to make the
weight room a part of their off season requirement
have only continued to fall further behind in sports.
Every school in Levy County is what I consider a
small school and they participate in either 1A, 2A, or
the 3A classification.
Willistd6,*Chiefland, and Bronson have all .
updated in ddeliipnetV th eir.eighttroms
for their student athletes. Because of the low number
of student athletes in these schools most of these
three teams have several players on their football
teams that play both offense and defense during a
football game. (Some' of the larger schools they play
against have the numbers not to have to do this.)'
Thanks to the weight rooms, these Levy County
kids are in shape, and can do this very well.
The three football teams in Levy County each
have an outstanding head coach and each team
should do well in their respective class and district
this season.
In visiting all three schools during the summer
months, it was gratifying to see the weight rooms
full of athletes working to improve themselves as
they ready for the start of football season.
I certainly agree with the head coach that I asked
the question to earlier. These kids today are much
bigger, stronger, and faster, and some are truly *
gifted athletes. It is also just my own opinion that
if one of these teams becomes that team who finds
the raw physical toughness the coach was talking
about, to go with the speed, strength, size, and pure
athleticism, a state championship could return to
Levy County. When and if this happens, it will be
the weight rooms that should receive a great deal of
credit. -
Of course, that is just my own opinion.


What I did at


basketball camp


Story and photos by Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

Varsity basketball head coaches Mark Lundy and Emily
Gore held Indian Summer Basketball Camp at the Chiefland
Gym.
The boy's wrapped up their camp July 25, and the
Ladies' camp will end Friday Aug. 1.
The coaches are simply teaching those in attendance the
basic fundamentals of the game of basketball. Dribbling,
passing, and shooting were the focus of each camp.
Teaching the young players the art of dribbling the
basketball, without looking down at it and to focus on where
they would go with the ball, was a key part of the program.
A lot of effort went into the various types of passing
including the all important bounce pass was practiced.
<',TIhe :Wif otpripLrLy placing youfodvfod e shoot as "
also on the agenda.
The boy's summer camp was attended by. the following
group: Jannah Lundy, Dale Stone, Jacob Edison, Josh
Webber, Ben Block, River Lundy, Keegan McLelland, Ryan
Block, Jonny Ulmer, Jacob Harrington, Zackery Barber and.
Chase Malloy.
The Lady's Summer Basketball Camp began Monday.
Chiefland Lady Varsity Basketball Coach Emily Gore was
on hand to teach the basics of basketball to her campers as
well. She also had several helpers to assist in making those
in attendance better basketball players, by helping to teach
the basic fundamentals. The helpers were, Maegan Morgan,
Amber Depew, Janessa Barrios, and Austin Sheffield.
The young ladies attending the Summer Camp were
Ashley Long, Megan Schmidt, Brittany Gilliam, Helen
Council, Sydney Allen, and Halie Hammond.

Nature Coast Garden Notes


Fall color blooms

By Anthony Drew
Levy County Extension Agent

Every year I anticipate the onset of the fall, with blissful
hours spent in netting mullet and enjoying college football.
Fall tradition at the Drew house also includes helping my wife,
Cindy, replace beds of periwinkle with petunias so we may
enjoy colorful blooms throughout the winter season. If you've
time and desire to put in fall flowering bedding plants, consider
delphinium (including larkspur), bachelor button, diarithus,
digitalis (foxglove) and Shasta Daisy, to name a few.
Fall is also the time in North Florida to grow some genuine
southern delicacies (think greens). A wide selection of cool-
season vegetables is available, however, successful fall
,vegetable or herb gardening takes some planning, specifically in
choosing the right plants to grow matching the plant to North
Florida weather conditions. Keeping in mind our "average date
of first frost" is sometime between the last week in October
and the first week in November. Generally speaking, if.the
vegetable matures in sixty days, count back seventy to eighty
days from the average date of first frost. This will give you the
date that plants should be started in order to have a crop before
frost.
With our raised beds, we've used both seed and later
transplanted or started with small plants. Some cool-season
vegetables are best started from transplants but many can be
direct-seeded. With plants or seed, select disease resistant
varieties and plant seed from disease-free plants. We hope
the following tips will help you in your fall landscape and
gardening adventure.
Pick a'sunny spot. Plants need at least eight hours of sunlight
per day. Some vegetables such as broccoli, collards and spinach
will tolerate partial shade however most vegetables perform
poorly in shade.
A clean slate. Start clean by clearing the site of all weeds or
finished vegetable plants. Turn the soil to a depth of at least 8
inches.
Recycle is not a dirty word. Spreading a two-inch to four-inch
layer of organic matter (leaves, grass clippings, aged manure or
compost) will encourage a strong, healthy root system, improve
drainage, retain moisture, provide nutrients and promote
vigorous plant growth. Mix the organic matter thoroughly and
evenly into the soil. With fresh organic amendments, wait at
least three weeks before planting your transplants or seeds. Just
prior to planting, rework the soil into fire firm seedbed.
SAqlow roodrf fdt"gtdWth: If planted too close, your plants
wivinot be abled'tb grow and produce to their full potential.
They may also experience disease problems from crowding.
Be on look-out for pests. Since insect and disease pressure
often is greater in the late summer/early fall than in the spring,
watch plants carefully for problems and use appropriate control
measures when needed. Contact the extension office for control
recommendations.

Vegetable Gardening Guide including outdoor planting dates,
suggested varieties and days to harvest information. Online

New SWAT bus to help fight against big tobacco


Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Levy County Students Working Against
Tobacco, part of a national extracurricular
club growing in numbers, have a new tool to
add to their anti-smoking campaign. An old
school bus has been redesigned as a mobile '
tobacco-prevention device to be used as
a highly-visible outreach center at school
sporting events and community activities.
The Levy County School Board
donated the bus to the Levy County Health
Department approximately seven years ago
to be used as an anti-tobacco tool. Soon
after the inside was modified with counters,
tables and benches, however, program
funding was cut and the bus sat virtually
unused, still awaiting exterior paint and the The new SV
funds to put it into service.
Through a Florida Department of Health community
grant created with tobacco settlement dollars, the bus
was given a new look last month by Minnesota aerosol
artist and youth activist Jawsh Lemke. Earlier this year,
Jawsh and fellow Juxtaposition, Inc. artist Peyton were
commissioned by SWAT in Alachua and Levy counties to
create an anti-tobacco mural in Gainesville.
On the side of the new SWAT bus, in brightly-colored
graffiti-style lettering, reads the message, "Stand out,
Speak up."
"The bus has a hip, urban feel," said Kristina Zachry,


WAT bus comes complete with a new "urban look.
Smoking Prevention Specialist for Levy County. "It gives
kids a chance to step outside of their rural surroundings."
Inside, the air-conditioned bus is packed with
information on smoking prevention, cessation programs,
big tobacco marketing ploys, and health-related issues.
Free promotional items available to visitors include
hacky-sacs, bracelets, piggy banks, and car air-fresheners
printed with tobacco-free logos and the website www.
gen-swat.com.
On one of the counters sits a giant can of
"Chokenhagen" snuff with the motto "It's addictive."


A two-foot plastic cigarette offers an
.. inside view of what may be in the tobacco
including turpentine, ammonia, and poison.
Two counters are equipped with
televisions, DVD players, and external
S speakers to show informational videos.
j The bus's windows are tinted dark purple
to offer prime viewing conditions. Two
booths, two benches, a table and stools
give guests a place to visit and play games.
,"" as Zachry said she plans to use the bus
as SWAT's primary recruitment tool and
educational base.
C "It's a one-stop entertainment stop,"
she said. "It's a fun, safe environment
that will give kids something to do and be
educational at the same time."
"I want people to look at this bus and
know what it is," she said. "I want them to
say, 'Oh, that's the tobacco bus' and 'Those
are the students fighting against tobacco.'"
Levy County has approximately 150 active SWAT
members in the middle and high schools, with the
strongest memberships-located in Williston High and
Chiefland middle schools.
"I'm working on building the SWAT groups along the
27-alt corridor," Zachry said. "And then hopefully we can
reach out to the students in Cedar Key and Yankeetown."
For more information on smoking prevention, SWAT
clubs, or to request the bus to visit a community event,
call (352) 486-3404.

Log Ca6ih Quieters

Log Cabin Quilters met July 24 at the Levy County Quilt Museum. It was Show
& Tell for B.J. and Lois. B.J. took a quilt that was quilted but wasn't done right, so
she took all the quilting out and did it right and she did a great job. That takes a lot of
patience. Lois has quilted a White Candle Wick and to get around all those little knots
must have been a problem but it turned out beautiful.
Derrick and six boys were out Tuesday and got the yard taken care of, since it rained
so much the weeds have come up. But they do a great job of getting them out.
Some of us will be going to Camp Caruth on Aug. 5 for a dedication on a building
we have been interested in. The campers will be learning about nature and also planting
Seed and plants.
Quilters lunch was great with chicken casserole, fried okra, rice, squash, kraut, fried
chicken, beans, macaroni salad, potato salad, slaw, Lois' chocolate dessert, lemon bars,
grape salad and great fellowship. 15 Present

Springhouse QuiCters

Springhouse quilters have been busy the last couple of weeks staying cool and trying
to finish a few quilting projects. The night owls are finishing up paper piecing and X-block
projects. These will soon be ready for a show and tell during the next night meeting.
The day group members are working on UFOs (unfinished objects) from several different
workshops plus some personal projects which were started earlier in the year. These too will
be ready for show and tell during the August regular business meeting.
The Round Robin project is continuing with 20 quilters participating in the block swap.
The showing for these projects will be October so we do not have many more rounds to add
before the showing. We are hoping the interest from this project will create enough interest to
again do a Round Robin swap in 2009.
While Springhouse members have been stitching away, Lancaster Correctional young men
have been keeping the yard in great shape. The membership of Springhouse truly appreciates
Will Allen and the group he brings from Lancaster to work on our property. We are one
of the few guilds, nationwide, that actually has propprty and it is because of the wonderful
community help we hwve beeniprovided that keepsapQperating. > ( .vo ;. no,
The next regular meeting date for Springhouse willbe Aug. 12 beginning at 9 arm.-=athe

Show features Journal correspondent
Local artist Kellie Parkin, photographer and correspondent for the Levy County
Journal, displays her digital art featuring the rural traditions of bull riding and greased
pig chasing in a two man show mounted at Coffee Culture in Gainesville, located at 2020
N.W. 13th Street.
"I love photography," Parkin said. "It's the art of capturing that single moment,
documenting history, making art out of every, day things."
The bull riding photos that were taken in Williston earlier this year during the Pee Wee
Mercer fundraiser display an adept knowledge of color, framing and light.
The greased pig photographs taken last October in Bushnell emphasize Parkin's ability
to use selective coloring.
City-born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Parkin relocated to Levy County four
years ago and had never encountered anything like greased pig chasing before. "I had no
idea that people chased pigs covered in grease it was quite the experience," she said.
Parkin recently graduated from Santa Fe College in Journalism and took every
photography class she could. Her mentor, Ray Hale, is also showing his work featuring a
different sort of hogs: motorcycle hawgs and hawg culture.
Last June Parkin participated in the Santa Fe student art show, displaying five
photographs and receiving an award for "Blinded" taken at the Pee Wee Mercer Fund-
raiser. "Blinded" is on display alongside four other photographs from the event.
Previously, Parkin was nationally honored for an infrared film darkroom print
photograph of two boys sitting on a dock at Levy County's Blue Springs.
Her mother is a Tampa native. Parkin traveled to Florida several times a year throughout
her childhood. "Florida is paradise, I always knew I would make it back here some day,"
she said.
The art show runs through mid September.

A biker with raised handlebars cruises into the Brick Grill in Old Town as fellow
bikers gather along the roadside. _


Four bikers round the final curve after a daylong ride through three counties.


Jayne Rocks marvels at her customized 1974 Harley Davidson Sportster.
The revamped bike was unveiled at the end of Saturday's fund-raising
motorcycle ride.

fries. Some drank a beer before leaving on the next leg of the trip.


orriston area as
for burgers and


before her surgery.
"It's great. I can't put it into words," she said.
Rocks received her cancer treatments at the
Community Cancer Center of North Florida. She said the
care was excellent. That was the reason she named the
cancer center as one of the organizations to benefit from
the ride.
Her husband, Keith, remembered how Haven Hospice
had given his friend Matt Reed great support when his
wife Kim was suffering from ovarian cancer. He named
Haven Hospice one of the organizations that would
benefit from the ride.
"They're one of.the best," he said. "I saw how much
love, and what they would do for people."
Jayne Rocks was first diagnosed with breast cancer in
July 2006. She had a mastectomy within. two weeks. After
six rounds of chemo, she had been given a clean bill of
health by December 2006. After doctors did additional
reconstructive surgery in January 2008, they found cancer
in her other breast a month later.


Rocks works for Eng, Denman and Associates, a
civil engineering and surveying firm in Gainesville. Her
husband operates his own lawn care service. They are
a cheery and upbeat couple despite the challenges they
have faced together. For one thing, Rocks said she was
unaware that chemotherapy would induce premature
menopause in her. She discovered the effects when she
was cleaning floors one day and her husband walked in
with dirty shoes. She yelled at him something she never
does. She was prescribed medicine to keep her calm.
The entourage for Saturday's "poker run" was a
combination of motorcyclists from all walks of life.
Buddy Dubois and his fiance', Carol Jones, who taught at
Chiefland High School for 25 years, were there to support
the cause, but they also enjoyed the ride. Jones said it's
great fun to ride through the beautiful countryside in this
area.
Mike Banks, a helicopter pilot for Anderson Columbia
road building company, arrived on a Harley Davidson
Ultra Classic. Banks wouldn't disclose the value of the


bike, except to say it was in excess of $30,000. The bike
has weather radar, an Ipod, automatic brakes and stereo
sound.
Banks said the bike is a good fit for him and his wife
Joyce.
"Her idea of roughing it is a Ramada Inn with slow
room service, so we hit it off," he said.
Kathleen Bogolea of Haven Hospice in Chiefland said
she enjoyed the day mingling with the bikers. She said
Haven Hospice was grateful to be named as one of the
organizations to benefit from the ride,
' Jackie H. Price, administrator of Haven Hospice, said
the money it receives will go into a patient rare fund. The
organization uses the money to provide services to the
uninsured, underinsured and others who fall through the
gaps, such as some self-employed people who never paid
taxes and are not entitled to Medicaid.
Haven Hospice serves 16 counties.
"It's a fantastic service, a fantastic job," she said.
