Chico's bottom lip sagged and his eyes looked
dreary. He yawned. The 15-year-old Appaloosa horse
drowsed off standing bn all fours.
Mission accomplished for massage therapist Emory
Philman.
"When they get in this state, the lips and bars relax
and the eyes are half closed, I know I've done my job,"
Philman said.
Philman, a licensed massage therapist from Bell,
works on people and horses. He sometimes massages
dogs, he said, .but his main trade is equine sports

He said equine massage is popular. Chico's
appreciative yawn spoke volumes about why horses
like being massaged. It feels real good.

Chiefland takes aim at adult entertainment


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Chiefland City Commissioners discussed options for preventing an
onrush of adult oriented businesses Monday, focusing their efforts oh
ordinances designed to regulate virtually every facet 0f such establishments.
City Attorney Norm Fugate presented commissioners with a group of
three such ordinances, based on similar plans employed by Gainesville to
regulate the adult entertainment industry. Commissioners present included
.Mayor Teal Pomeroy, Sammy Cason, Frank Buie and Rollin Hudson. Vice
Mayor Teresa Barron had to leave the meeting early to attend a county
budget meeting in Bronson.
Fugate said the city's plan is to take similar plans previously established
by Levy County, in regards to adult entertainment businesses, a step or
two further.
The three ordinances, he said, concern, the licensing of adult
entertainment establishments and escort services; nudity in conjunction
with alcoholic beverages; and distance requirements for adult and sexually-
oriented establishments.


"I don't know that there is any interplay between the three ordinances,"
Fugate said, responding to a question from Mayor Teal PQmeroy. "These
are three separate concepts regulated by each ordinance."
The licensing ordinance would only apply to "adult. performance"
establishments, and not to adult bookstores and the like, Fugate said.
"It can be extended to that if you wish to do that," the attorney said.
The distance ordinance would specify minimum distance requirements
for adult-oriented businesses to be established. Those include distances
from other sexually-oriented establishments; from religious assemblies,
public or private schools, public playgrounds or parks; and from -any
residentially-zoned areas. The specific distances were left blank for
commissioners to determine.
"The commission will have to determine what numbers go in there as
far as distance requirements, and we will have to come up with some maps
based on the distance requirements to show that there are some eligible
areas," Fugate said. He added that he thought Gainesville distances were
1,000 feet.

Drummond Community Bank President Luther
Drummond said Friday that local commercial banks
should not be confused with the poorly-regulated,
large, investment banks on Wall Street that are
faltering under the weight of billions of dollars in
distressed mortgages.
Drummond said commercial banks in the tri-
county area are profitable and conservatively
managed and are careful about how money is lent
and to whom. He said local commercial banks
haven't gotten caught up in the housing bust that
is sinking many of the big name investment banks
on Wall Street. ,
"The mess we are now in can be blamed on a
mortgage industry and Wall Street that has gone


largely unregulated and unsupervised," he said.
"The large banks such as Bear Stearns, Lehman
Brothers and Goldman Sachs that we currently
hear about in the news are investment banks and.
shouldn't be confused with commercial banks, such
as Drummond, Community Bank and other banks
in the tri-county area, that are highly regulated and
supervised."
President Bush and Congress are considering a
rescue proposal for the large investment banks on
Wall Street that could easily cost taxpayers $700
billion, according to an Associated Press story.
Some experts believe the .final bill could tally $1
trillion.
Lax lending practices, commonplace within the
mortgage industry and Wall Street, brought about

Former Bronson town clerk tells her side of story


By Rick Burnham
Editor

The war of words between Bronson's formal town clerk and two council
members has spilled over into another week, and appears far from being
settled.
Donna Conquest's final day as clerk was Tuesday, following her
resignation two weeks ago. That came after accusations from council
members Melody LaFlam and Berlon Weeks that they had repeatedly
requested information from Conquest that she had failed to deliver.
Conquest answered those allegations Monday, and expressed frustration
she had not been given the opportunity to do so before. In the Sept. 18
edition of the Levy County Journal, LaFlam said she had not received
budgetary information despite requesting the data in writing. .
"This is true," Conquest said when asked whether LaFlam had requested
the records. "She also got an answer to that."
A


Conquest said numerous town records had been previously taken by
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in conjunction .with the
investigation of former Bronson Mayor Jamie Griffin. Once they got the
records back, she said, the FBI came in and took them again.
As a result, she said, the town's general ledger is incorrect, and will be
incorrect until all the audits are caught up. Conquest produced a letter to
Bronson Town Council members dated Nov. 21, 2007 four days after
LaFlam's request explaining the situation.
"We are way behind in our accounting records because a lot of the
information is missing or just not there," Conquest said. "FDLE had them
until two years after I got here. At least when the FBI took them we got to
make copies of most of it to start the audit process. We just finished '03
and '04.
"Our general ledger is not going to be correct until we finish all of our

the current mess with largebanks and the mortgage industry,
according to Drummond.
In the past, Drummond said, when a family wanted
to purchase a home, it was financed by a local bank that
held the mortgage and was a lender the homeowner knew
very well. The bank was also familiar with the value of the
property being held as collateral and the credit-worthiness
of the borrower.
In the early 1970s, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage
Corporation, or Freddie Mac as it later became known,
was formed to purchase mortgages from lenders across the
United States, pool them and sell them to investors on the
open market. Fannie Mae, a similar organization, already
existed.
All was well until Fannie and Freddie (Wall S.treet, too)
took steps that would come back to bite them. They lowered
their standards for loans they would buy and backed riskier
mortgages, including loans that didn't require borrowers to
provide any proof of their income (such as W2s, pay slips
etc.) and knowingly approved borrowers with weak credit
scores.
At the same time this was happening, Drummond said,
many mortgage companies and other lenders began paying
"commissions" to loan officers to make loans.
"As you can imagine... an environment where a borrower
with poor credit who doesn't have to provide proof of
income finds a lender who has a monetary incentive to make
the loan ... results in many loans being made that shouldn't
have been made in the first place," Drummond said.
These loans became known as subprime loans. Wall
Street took these loans, pooled then together into packages
known as mortgage-backed securities and sold them in the
market place. He said today there are trillions of dollars of
these instruments owned by investors around the world.
Now in 2008, there is a housing bust.where homeowners
who shouldn't have been approved for a loan in the first
place are defaulting on mortgages and creating a record-
setting number of foreclosures. This is flooding the market
with houses and causing trillions of dollars of mortgage-
backed investments to unravel worldwide.
"Whenyou don't pay attention to sound lending practices,
these things can happen," Drummond said.
Drummond said local commercial banks are somewhat
immune to the negativity ofthe Wall Street meltdown because
most community banks don't own any of these mortgage-
backed investments and local banks are profitable.
Drummond said the most immediate impact of this
housing bust to the local consumer is that lending standards
are now very strict, making it more difficult to qualify for
the purchase of a home and mariy thler ty3p'' of homes.
In a late development iCNNMI.oney.com reported.
Monday that federal regulators converted Wall Street's
remaining stand-alone investment banks Goldman Sachs
and Morgan Stanley into bank holding companies Sunday
night.
The move puts Goldman and Morgan under the Federal
Reserve's supervision, increasing the agency's regulatory
oversight. As banks, Morgan and Goldman will be forced
to take less risk, which will mean fewer profits, the CNN
story said.
The shift removes the two investment banks as targets of
nervous investors and customers who brought down their
rivals, Bear Stearnms, Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch
this year.
"And it brings to a close the era of the Wall Street
investment bank, a storied institution that traded stocks and
bonds, advised mergers and showered lavish bonuses on its
executives," the story said.

County commission approves budget, lowers tax rate


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
In an era of tight money, the easiest part of the budget
process for the Levy County Commission was adopting
next year's. $63.7 million spending plan Monday night.
Few members of the public attended the hearing and
those who did had nothing to say. The only public comment
came from city and county government officials.
In other words, it was a relatively uneventful hearing.
Commissioners approved a tax rate of 7.4212 mills,
enough to generate about $16.6 million in property tax
revenue for the coming budget year. The 2008-09 budget
year will begin on Oct. 1 and end on Sept. 30, 2009.
The commission's millage rate amounts to a tax
decrease because the revenues are. less. The millage rate
is 9.3 percent lower than the rollback rate, the millage that
would gave generated the same amount of revenue as the
previous year.


Commissioners chose to hold the line on spending
instead of raising property taxes. Department heads and
county elected officials who depend on the commission for
funding were told not to grant employee pay hikes and to
keep their budgets as close to last year's level as possible.
For a person who owns a $200,000 home and claims
Homestead Exemptions on the first $25,000 of value and
the third $25,000 in value, the tax bill levied by the county
commission will be about $1,113. It could be less than that
if a person has other exemptions.
School Board Budget
There are many taxing authorities in the county,
including the Levy County School Board, the cities and the
water management districts. The combined millage rates
of all the taxing authorities in a given area of the county,
plus any special property assessments, make up the total
tax bill for the property owner.
Levy County School Board members adopted a tax rate


of 7.742 mills on Sept. 15. Their total budget was $69.4
million, up about $383,000 from last year. The school
board budget process is completely separate from the
county commission.
The school board's millage rate is calculated in the
same way as the county commission, and taxpayers can be
exempted from school taxes on the first $25,000 of value
of their home through the Homestead Exemption, but not
on the third $25,000 of the home's value.
The 7.742 school board tax rate is combination of
required and optional millage rates added together. The
state-required local effort is 5.244 mills of property tax, but
the board also approved 1.750 mills for school construction
and two discretionary millage rates totaling 0.748.
School board members had been levying a school
construction millage, or capital outlay millage, of 2 mills
in the past, but this year the Legislature took a quarter mill
of that money to use for state purposes.


Water district chief says transfers no longer a worry


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
The executive director of the Suwannee River Water Management District gave Levy
County commissioners surprising news last week about the controversial topic of water
transfers to South Florida.
David Still told them not to worry.
He said this area, including Levy County, has increased its water use to the point that it
can't send any water south. He said the district has established minimum flows and levels
for lakes and rivers. Withdrawals below those levels are not allowed.
He said this area can't spare any water for South Florida or Southwest Florida.
"We are one permit away from being in a water crisis," Still said.
Still's appearance before the county commission was for a different purpose. He gave
commissioners a check for $16,523. It was a payment in lieu of taxes for the public
property the district owns in Levy County.
For years, Levy and neighboring counties, including Citrus, Hernando and Marion
counties have been concerned about the possibility of being forced to pump water to
South Florida's growing urban areas if those areas ran low on drinking water.
Still said the threat has disappeared as water use has increased here. He said the district
is about to begin a regional water planning program to manage and protect the water
resources.
"I don't think we have to Worry about South Florida anymore. We don't have to worry
about Southwest Florida. We have to worry about ourselves," Still said.
Commissioner Lilly Rooks said counties had a tough fight last year in the Legislature
with mining issues. The Legislature wanted to take away the'power of counties to regulate
mining. ...
Still responded that local governments will continue to have problems with this
Legislature, and he said with some veteran lawmakers being subject to term limits, the
Legislature continues to lose institutional knowledge.




Needed!

The Levy County Journal is seeking
a graphic design specialist with
an active imagination, and a news.
writer with dedication & flexibility.


Institutional knowledge refers to experienced lawmakers with long memories about
particular issues in this case, water issues.
"I just think we as a regional government, and local governments, have a fight on our
hands and we will continue to have a fight on our hands," Still said.
In other business:
Commissioners approved their final agency report recommending approval of
transmission lines that would connect the two proposed Progress Energy nuclear power
generating plants north of Inglis to the rest of the power line grid. Progress Energy has
filed an application with the state for certification of the site and related transmission lines.'
The county is required to file a final report with the Florida Department of Environmental
Regulation containing the recommendation.
One of the conditions set by the county is that Progress Energy must provide studies
on anticipated noise levels from construction of the transmission lines and studies of the
potential noise from operation of the transmission lines. Another condition requires the
company to file for a driveway access permit if it plans to build a haul road across County
Road 40 during construction. Progress Energy has indicated it might haul some heavy
equipment up the Cross Florida Barge Canal and across CR 40 to build transmission lines
and the plant. The county says the company must also submit detailed engineering and
construction plans for the driveway and must meet state road standards.

Health Department official stresses child abuse prevention

Eighty percent of the babies born in Florida are bom to

That startling assessment was the highlight of a 30-
minute presentation by John Jones of the Levy County T:'
Health Department to the Chiefland Rotary Club Sept. 17 .
at Bell's Restaurant in Chiefland
Jones was invited to speak to club members on child
abuse in the local area, specifically on "Healthy Families,"
a Child Abuse Prevention Program started by the health
department. He said the program identifies families who
are in a high stress situations, helping them establish goals,
to become self sufficient, and to learn proper child parent
interaction skills.

homes. A lot of times they are substance abusers, or have
mental health issues."
And many comprise single-parent households.
"Only 20 percent of babies born in all the present hospitals in this state go home
to married, two-parent households," he said. "That means there are a lot of significant
others, a lot of boyfriends.
"Some of these are the reasons for the a lot of the issues we have in the horimes we
visit."
Jones said targeting such households probably helps keep families out of the trouble
down the road.,

past audits. When I came here to set it up (a general ledger system) it had not been done
for two years. They are not going to be correct until all the audits are done. I can't help it
- it is what it is, and I didn't do it."
LaFlam said she received the letter in question, but did not feel like it was a suitable
response to her request.
"I didn't feel like it was," she said. "She had to have something she was working from.
Anytime you have a general ledger, you have to have something you are starting from.
Regardless of what you have done with your records, you have to have a starting point
that you run the town off of. She just wouldn't give me the information I felt I needed to
do my job."
LaFlam said it is standard procedure for any municipality to operate front a general
ledger, whether it is right or wrong.
"Whenever any public official or any business does the books, or whenever we vote
on the budget, we need to have an official ledger," she said. "That is what I asked her for.
There is no way I can govern the money that is given to the town of Bronson without it.

give them all the tools they need, with the very limited
resources we have, and to prevent the abuse of their
children."
Jones said his organization serves Levy County, as well
V as Dixie County, Gilchrist County, and Suwannee County..
He added that the program is tried and true.
.. "Our model has been proven it is scientifically backed
up," he said. "We have all sorts of independent evaluators
who say that prevention is the key. This is a program that,,!
'in a very real and a very tangible way, makes a difference
in lives by breaking cycles."
Jones said the people who work in the field through I
"Healthy Families" take their jobs very seriously.
"We understand that every day we that we are in the<
field every day that we encounter a pit bull, or waste-'*

about the children. We are all about making sure these kids
grow up safe and nurtured, well educated, and that they have all the tools they need when,
they start school.
Some of the ways you can get involved with Healthy Families is our advisory board.
Jones left the group with a number of different avenues for getting involved, including,
serving on the Healthy Families advisory board, volunteering, and donating funds.
It is all for a good cause, he added.
A lot of times when we think about reducing child mortality, we think about mosquito
nets, we think about reducing malaria, we think about HIV Aids in Africa," he said.
"Sometimes when we think about it, we should look right in our own back yards: There

used as the Bronson Town Hall.
Conquest specifically addressed the request regarding the Jackson House, and she:-!
presented a letter from Weeks himself that she says proves he received the information.
The letter, dated April 16, says that a report given out by Mayor Franklin Schuler
regarding the Jackson House at the 'end of a town council meeting was not done.
correctly.
"He lied he got it," Conquest said. "He did not like the way it was presented to the
council, but he got it."
Repeated attempts to contact Berlon Weeks for comment regarding the issue were-
unsuccessful.
Conquest, who has found employment elsewhere, said any allegations that she did her
job improperly while serving as town clerk are unfounded.
"They have been provided everything they have ever asked for," she said. "Apparently
it was not the answer they wanted. But I can't help that. I don't make the ariswer up. It is
what it is." --.

Cedar Key's likely police chief says department will change


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Former Florida Highway Patrol officer Virgil Sandlin is the likely choice of the Cedar
Key City Commission for police chief, and he said he is working to change the image of
a department accused of being unfriendly and driving off tourists.
Sandlin, the interim chief and top ranked police .chief candidate among six finalists,
will find out on Sept. 30 if he is the new chief. That is the last day of the current budget
year. He would replace former Chief Bubba Castell whose contract was not renewed in
August. Castell started work for the sheriff's office Monday as a courthouse security
officer.
Sandlin said the city commission and community redevelopment agency have given
the department a golf cart to open lines of communication with residents. The cart will
be equipped with emergency lights, siren and radio like a police car.
"When you pass someone on the street in a patrol car with your window rolled up
and the air conditioning on, it's not as easy to talk to people as it is from a golf cart,"
Sandlin said.
Sandlin said the city commission also wants to eliminate take-home patrol cars as of

NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARING


The City of Cedar Key, Florida has tentatively adopted a budget
for fiscal year 2008/2009. A Public Hearing to, make a FINAL
DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on


September 29, 2008 at 6 o'clock p.m.

at

City Hall, 490 Second Street

Cedar Key, Florida


Oct. 1. As of the first of October, Sandlin said police officers will drive to work in their
civilian vehicles. He said patrol cars can still be used to deliver suspects to the county
jail or court.
Having lived in Cedar Key for 27 years, Sandlin believes he is in touch with the
community he lives in, and he said he truly believes Cedar Key is a great place to live,
but he is aware some residents had begun to view Cedar Key as a Waldo-type town. The
community of Waldo has had a reputation as a speed trap.
Sandlin said he told commissioners in his interview he will continue to enforce traffic
laws, but he will do it in a different way. He said some officers had spent their entire
shifts parked on State Road 24 working traffic. He said that won't happen anymore. He
said officers won't be able to park for more than an hour working traffic. He wants the
police department to have a bigger presence in the Dock Street area.
He said there were also allegations that Cedar Key police followed people from bars
and arrested them for driving under the influence. He said that won't be happening on
his watch, but he said if people leaving the bars see a patrol car, he hopes they will be
smart enough to realize that drinking and driving is still against the law in Cedar Key.
"We're not going to stop enforcing traffic laws, but it will be done differently," he
said.

Local church sponsors Disaster Preparedness Fair
i


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Why were all the emergency vehicles parked at the Chiefland Wal-Mart Supercenter
Saturday?
It was educational in nature.,
A fire truck, ambulance and sheriff's office airboat were among the emergency vehicles
brought to the Wal-Mart parking lot for a Disaster Preparedness Fair..
The display that caught the eye of visitors was the U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue
boat.
The 25-foot Defender Class Homeland Security boat was bright orange with a metal cab.
Attached to the rear of the boat was a pair of 225-horsepower Honda outboard motors. The
boat's top speed is about 50 mph. A 25-caliber machine gun is mounted on the front for patrols
in the Yankeetown area.
Running at full speed, the boat can turn on a dime without slowing down, according to
Coastguardsman Jeremy Graybill, a Boseman's Mate 3rd Class. Performance fins mounted on
the exterior bottom of the boat grab the water to make high speed turns possible.
One of the boat's primary missions is to patrol the waters near the Crystal River nuclear
power plant south of Yankeetown.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints organized the fair as a community education
project. Along with the exhibits outside, tables were set up inside the store to help families
and individuals understand what they can do to be better prepared physically, emotionally and
spiritually for emergencies, according to the church.
Invited to the fair were the Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie County Departments of Emergency
Management, the Chiefland, Bronson, Williston and Trenton fire and rescue departments,
Chiefland Police department, Florida Highway Patrol, Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie County
sheriff's offices, Red Cross, Chiefland Public Schools, Central Florida Electric Cooperative,
Levy County Health Department, United States Coast Guard, Progress Energy and Levy,
Dixie County Emergency Medical Services and various churches.
Not all the invited agencies showed for the event. There had been little advance publicity.
The event was not well attended by the public for the same reason, at least not the exhibits
outside the door.

The display tables inside the store attracted shoppers curious about what was being
offered.
Janet Hart, a Levy County Health Department supply technician, was handing out
information on subjects ranging from a fish eating guide for Florida, to a flu shot schedule and
a basic guide for emergency shelters. The guide explained what shelters are for, and what they
are not. They are not a resort. Typically shelters provide a safe place to temporarily live. Light
meals such as sandwiches, soups, etc. and water are served.
Regarding the flu, Hart said the most important thing people can do is wash their hands
regularly.
"You can't wash your hands enough," she said. '

Firearms lay


vary by stat

I frequently get questions about the legal car
possession of firearms, especially handguns. I w
to address some of these questions.
1. Do I need to register my rifle or handgun? N(
like most states, does not register firearms.
r 2. May I carry a firearm on my person? If
your home or place of business, you may carry
weapon, concealed or openly. Once you go out
home or place of business,
such as in common areas of
an apartment or condominium
Complex, you'd be well-
Sadvised to obtain a Florida
Concealed Weapons License
to make sure you don't run
into trouble.with the law.
3. Is pepper spray or tear
gas considered a weapon in
Florida?- Florida law allows
citizens to carry self-defense
chemical weapons of two SH ERI
ounces or less. They may be
carried openly or concealed, CO RN
and no license is needed. SHERIFF JOH N
4. What other states honor
the Florida Concealed Weapons License? So far,
honor Florida's license, including the nearby
Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, T
Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia. Some
recognizing Florida licenses include South
Illinois, Maryland and West Virginia.
5. Can I legally carry a firearm in a vehicle ii
Yes, even without a concealed weapons permit. T
"two step rule" is a common misconception. That
does not appear in Florida's firearms laws, and i
accurately paraphrase what the law says. To be
firearm must be "securely encased" or "not ava
immediate use." "Securely encased" means in
zipper or Velcro pouch, in a snapped holster, oi
other closed compartment. In the glove compa

long as the compartment is closed and the gun is
encased in a snapped holster for example. Ano
a gun in the car can be legal, is to be "not ava
immediate use." For example, a shotgun in a r,
rear window of a pickup truc'would beery di
the _T, r ku tru dk' would i

6. If I have a gun in my vehicle and I get stole
traffic violation what should I tell the deputy? I
answer his questions truthfully. If the gun is in y
compartment or center console, do not open it wi
telling the officer there is a firearm or weapon in tl
and the location. Officer safety is paramount a
does want any surprises when dealing with firearm
I hope that you have found these questions an
helpful. Gun laws are complex and vary greatly
I would recommend if you are traveling to ano
and you wish to carry your firearm, you should
gun laws for that state. If you have any further
related to carrying firearms that I have not address

Adult, from Page 1A
Not everyone was happy with Fugate's decision to use Gainesville examples as a basis
for establishing Chiefland ordinances. Local resident Sylvia McCullar said Gainesville
has encountered problems with their laws.
"I don't understand why our board requested a.Gainesville ordinance," she said. "The
Gainesville community has not had success with their ordinances. They are not enforcing
what is there. If they try to enforce it, they are challenged. And if people are not going to
enforce the law, it makes it easier for them to do whatever they want to do. I urge you to
reconsider using Gainesville's ordinances, because the wording does not pass muster."
McCullar said the city should focus its efforts on what has worked for other communities
in the past.
"What we would like to have is no adult business," she said. "But there is no way we
can do that anymore. So what we need is an ordinance that has been accepted all the way
to the Supreme Court. I don't think the city of Chiefland has money to afford a lawyer to
go to the Supreme Court and fight for us."
The ordinances provided various justifications for regulation of the adult-entertainment
industry, including the following passage:
"When the activities ... are present in establishments, other activities which are
illegal, unsafe or unhealthy tend to accompany them, concentrate around them, and be
aggravated by them. Such other activities include, but are not limited to, prostitution,
pandering, solicitation for prostitution, lewd and lascivious behavior, exposing minors
to harmful materials, possession, distribution and transportation of obscene materials,
sale and possession of controlled substances, and violent crimes against persons and
property."
The ordinance went on to say that adult-oriented businesses tend to attract undesirable
numbers of transients, produce blight neighborhoods, and "adversely affect neighboring
businesses."
In the end; commissioners opted to table the issue for a week, allowing Barron to
provide input as well.

Sweaty, sweaty people


By Rick Burnham
Editor

heSwas sweating.
A friend of mine attending a meeting that

I was in came just in time to hear a voice '
of support for Sarah Palin running mate
of Republican Presidential candidate John McCain.
The "lin" of Palin's name had barely left the lips of
the person voicing their support when small beads of
sweat began to appear on the brow of my friend. She
leaped wholeheartedly into a brief tirade about Palin's '
experience, or something. I will admit to not really paying
attention to her words. I was too busy watching her sweat.
Of course, Florida's overwhelming heat and humidity makes just about everyone
sweat. Throw in the fact that my friend was running a little late for the meeting -
rushing around in the heat and you have a sweaty situation. That was probably it.
But it seems to me that more and more people more and more liberals, to be precise.
- get awfully defensive, and downright sweaty, when it comes to discussing Sarah Palin.
Corporate media types, Hollywood's finest, highbrow constituents of academia and,
of course, members of Barack Obama's political machine, seem to grow irate when the
Alaska Governor's name pops up in conversation.
She is making them sweat.
It is hard to figure just how a hockey mom from way up yonder can do such a thing,
but I've got a theory. i
Think way back to the beginning of the primary season, when the name John McCain
was way back on the list of viable Republican candidates for president. Mitt Romney,
Mike Huckabee, Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani were consistently considered
frontrunners, and rarely did you hear McCain's name. Somehow though, the Arizona
senator made it to the forefront, eventually becoming the presumptive nominee. As it "
turned out, hordes and hordes' of "independent" voters pushed him through to the top.
Assured that their own party would have a suitable candidate in either Barack Obama
or Hillary Clinton, those "independent" voters chose instead to select someone they
thought could not possibly get elected from the other side.


Investigating of gas


It was something I had never even considered. I thought at the time, and still do, that
it was brilliant.. And in the early days of the campaign, the whole plan seemed to be
right on track. Poll numbers consistently put Obama ahead, sometimes by considerable
margins.
And the media ate it up.
Remember Obama's trip abroad? Remember the non-stop coverage that virtually
every news channel gave the trip? Remember the speeches? Remember the hand
"bump" between Obama and wife Michelle? It seemed that every time Obama broke
wind, CNN was there to tell us how good it smelled.
Something happened on the way to th.e inauguration though. Something happened on,
the way to hope and change.
McCain proved to be a more formidable opponent than those on the left anticipated.
He spoke with a consistent voice, and offered specific ideals and principles instead of
vague and general concepts. And his first major decision as the presidential nominee for,
his party was a home run.
He chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. And Sarah is making them sweat.
CNN Commentator Jack Cafferty lamented the other day that he could not believe .
the race was as close as it is, that Obama should be miles and miles ahead. Oprah has
chosen to not have Palin on her show until after the election. HBO's Bill Maher belittles',
her at every opportunity. Matt Damon compares her political rise to a "bad Disney
movie." Roseann Barr doesn't like her.' Neither does Lindsay Lohan. "Pink" criticizes
her intelligence. Margaret Cho whoever that is has serious issues with Palin. Jada
Pinkett Smith does as well.
Actress Janeane Garofalo, when told that Palin just authored an energy bill for the ,
state of Alaska, scribbled on a piece of paper in front of her and said, "There, I just
authored an energy bill." Garofalo also said, by the way, "When I see the American flag,'
I go, 'Oh my God, you're insulting me.'"
Obama himself has had only flattering things to say about Palin, but, curiously, has
begun to stammer and stutter just a bit when answering questions during interviews.
Closer to home, a cousin of mine, who was mostly noncommittal one month ago,
about the election, has now begun to say accusatory things about the Republicans at
every opportunity.
He is sweating. They all are.
And regardless of the eventual outcome, it is quite entertaining.


price gouging a step in right direction


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

T he Florida Attorney General's Office has begun
serving 16 gas companies with subpoenas in
the wake of reports that consumers were being
gouged by high gas prices after Hurricane Ike.
Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist received more
than 2,300 complaints from consumers about gasoline
prices rising to absurd levels after Ike.
The 16 companies will be asked for documentation
related to the prices companies paid and lhe price they ...
sold it'at.
Hurrah! At last, someone is investigating the high price
of gasoline.
Someone dropped by my dinner table at a local
restaurant last week to ask me why a BP gas station in
Gilchrist County was selling gasoline for $4.50 per gallon
after Ike.
I figured that price was an exaggeration until I paid
$4.25 per gallon for regular gas for my lawn mower
Saturday at a convenience store on the south end of
Bronson. The man behind the counter said the wholesaler
had set the prices and it would probably go higher.
Now wait a minute.
Crude oil prices have dropped by nearly $40 a barrel in
the past month or so. I might add that the prices dropped
to these new lower levels ahead of the Nov. 4 national
election. So what gives? Gasoline is made from crude oil.
If oil prices drop by that much, who is stealing from the
public now? Is someone not playing team.ball here?
Crist should investigate the entire gasoline and oil
industry in Florida and join forces with other state
attorney generals to do the same thing nationwide. It is
obvious President Bush and Congress will do no serious
investigating prior to this election, if ever.' I expect prices
to rise or hold steady after the election.
The price of gasoline in Chiefland before Ike made
landfall in Texas was about $3.71 to $3.78' per gallon.
But then a rumor on Sept. 12, if memory serves me, that
gas prices would increase to $5 per gallon after Ike due
to shortages. A county, employee called to ask me if I had
heard that rumor about the spike in prices. I said I hadn't
heard anything.
As soon as I hung up the phone, I drove north on U.S.
19 in Chiefland and saw every gas pump in the city had
a short line of vehicles gassing up. Prices had risen to
$3.96 per gallon for regular at a couple of stations. One
station was at $3.88. I finally found an empty gas pump
on the north end of town and capped off my gas tank. If


there really was going to be a shortage, I wanted to have
enough gas to get out of Dodge.
Turns out, most of the state was apparently hit with
the same rumor. The end result was that thousands of
stations were pumped dry. The owners placed plastic over
the pump handles to show they had sold out of gasoline. I
wonder who started the rumor. Did the oil or gas industry
start the rumor to generate additional profits or justify
increases in price.
Gasoline dealers are sensitive to the term "gouging."
Qne dealer told me that even though oil prices are lower,-
a.percentage of the refineries hadto be shut down"m ..'
Texas' and the co6nipanies that normally operate those
refineries were buying gas at higher prices on the spot
market. I'm sure he was telling me the truth. But does it
explain what happened last week with the sudden spike in
prices?
The rise in gas prices last week also pointed to the
vulnerability of our gas supply. When a single storm
in the Gulf of Mexico can raise the price of a gallon of
regular test gasoline by 25 cents over night, there's a
problem with our fragile gasoline supply system. Too
many people are profiting from the price gouging and
too much money is being passed around Washington to
elected leaders and gas industry regulators.
I was listening to a television interview with an oil
industry analyst last week who noted that the supply of oil
and gasoline is vulnerable to political instability. That's
a couple of big words that mean that the United States is
waging a verbal fight with Venezuala about its hardball,
politics and with Iran for its nuclear bomb development
program. Both are major oil suppliers on the world
market. The analyst said Nigerian oil is also vulnerable
to disruption because of political turmoil and Russia
has seized control of the country of Georgia, grabbing,
control of an oil line that supplies much of Europe. More
instability.
I think it is becoming increasingly clear that the United
States is sitting on an oil politics time bomb. When the
time bomb explodes, as it will someday, perhaps real
soon, oil supplies will trickle into the U.S. and the price
of crude will surge to $200 a barrel. Gasoline at the pump
will cost as much as $5 per gallon or more. The United
States has no price controls.
The American people are waiting for Barack Obama
.or John McCain to offer their answers to the problem of
$4 gasoline. Neither has done so yet. I heard Obama say
the other day that he has a plan to wean the United States
from foreign oil in 10 years. I would like to support the
plan, and I would, if he told me what he intends to do

about $4 gasoline in the meantime. He wants to end speculation
in oil commodities. Okay then, how would he do it?
As for McCain, he keeps chanting the mantra "drill,
drill drill," as though that's going to solve everything.
Drilling for more domestic oil will eventually wean us off,
foreign oil supplies, but it could take five years before the:
first barrel of the new oil is pumped and 10 years before
we actually have millions of gallons of new oil flowing
each day from domestic supplies. That doesn't solve the
problem of $4 gasoline, especially'when there is a total
absence of price controls. Even domestic supplies can be
sold for excessive prices in a captive market.' A'
I agree with Obama that oil commodity speculators
need to be heavily regulated. Speculators are driving up ',
the cost of gasoline, I'm told. I agree that we need to
do more drilling for oil. But if Obama's plan will lower "
gas prices in the next year or two, he needs to say it
publicly, and tell usby how.much. McCain seems to think:
drilling will solve all our energy problems, but what he
doesn't say is how long it would take before we see any ^
appreciable increase in domestic oil supplies. And he has g
been dead silent on $4 gasoline. It's as though it doesn't ,a
exist.
I've told several people I would like to see a question
and answer session for the two presidential candidates on,
CNN or Fox, or both, focusing exclusively on the energy
crisis. I want to hear both candidates tell the American
people in great detail how they would lower the. price of -
gasoline in the near and long term and how they would
wean the country from foreign oil. I would prefer to have:
the questions come from members of the public. The
Press always seems to throw out softball questions.
Time is runnirig out on how to find solutions to the
energy crisis. If oil supplies are disrupted, for whatever
reason, you will see gas prices rise to $5 per gallon or
higher. At that point, I think Crist and his fellow attorney
generals need to throw the person or persons responsible
in the slammer with no hope of parole.

King Road Mine will boost local economy with new jobs


"'-2


From recent high school graduates to former con-
struction workers, across Levy County more than
1,200 residents are looking for work.
They are not alone. Florida's unemployment rate
spiked this summer, above 6 percent the highest
*' level since 1995.
In neighboring Citrus County, the unemployed
exceed 4,700 and in Marion County, some 11,000
residents are without a regular paycheck.
The region is among the hardest hit in' the state,
with all three counties seeing unemployment go up
significantly in just 12 months.
In Levy, Tarmac America is making plans.to invest
millions in the economy and create new jobs with the
proposed King Road Mine.
Tarmac America, a leading supplier of Florida
construction materials since the 1980s, has a solid
reputation for being a good employer and a responsi-
ble corporate citizen. The company employs about
1,200 people in quarries, concrete-block, ready-mix
concrete, sand and transportation facilities across' the
state.
The proposed King Road Mine would mine the
special type of timerock found in southern Levy and
turn it into construction-grade aggregate, a vital
product that is in short supply around the state.



Estimated unemployment rates for Levy, Citrus and
Marion counties exceed the state average.

July 2007 Increase
. 5.4 46 %
5.1 55 %

The King Road Mine would bring jobs and about
$100 million annually in local spending.

60 jobs during construction

35 jobs for mining operations

340 spinoff jobs throughoutithe region '




'Tarmac


The timrning of Thrmac America's nevw, enter-
pfuse couldn't be better for the region and
the state.
Gov. Charlie Crist announced in August
"Accelerate Florida", an economic stimulus
plan that would speed up billions -of dollars in con-
struction and transportation projects around the state
- meaning even greater demand for aggregate needed
to build highways, bridges schools, and other public
construction projects
If Tarmac America is successful in getting the
required permits, the aggregate mine could be open
by 2010.
The project will create a number of good paying
jobs. Tarmac expects to hire a work force of 60 people
during the construction phase of the King Road Mine.
Once operations begin, Tarmac will fill 35 full-time
positions, including administrative staff, front-end
loader drivers, plant operators and supervisors. The
majority of positions will earn an average annual


b


Tarmac


I.,


salary ot $30.000 plus benefits,
Swith the top positions earning
an average of $50,000 annually
plus benefits.
p The Levy County economy will
benefit in ways beyond the paychecks to the new
Tarmac America work force. The gains include taxes
paid to Levy County and local spending.
Combined, Tarmac jobs and investments could
mean a $1 billion boost to the local economy in the
first decade of operations,

8ob Hadtn. g
Political advertisement paid for and approved by Bob Hastings, Republican for Superintendent of Schools


Philman. Davis had received therapeutic massages from
Philman for several years before she learned he worked on
horses, too. Her horse Chico came to mind.
"I figured if it was that good for me, it's got to be good
for Chico," she said.
Turns out, she was right.
Davis's granddaughter, Hilary Davis, had been
experiencing problems with Chico. Every once in a while
he would buck her off. The family couldn't figure out
why.
Philman was consulted. He checked the saddle being
used by Hilary. He found it was pushing on a muscle in'
Chico's back and causing pain. When Chico had enough
of the pain, he would buck..
When Philman told the family what was wrong, they.
began using a different saddle that fit comfortably on,
Chico's back. He didn't buck after that. Philman said'
improperly fitting saddles are the biggest problem he deals,
with as an equine massage therapist.
Many of the problems he finds result from the rider not
balancing properly on the horse's back. If a rider doesn't sit'
in a balanced manner it can cause pain and make muscles:
stiff and .sore. It might make the horse cantankerous if a'
rider places more of his or her weight to one side.
Philman teaches horse riders how to ride in balance.'.
He calls the course he teaches "core strength for riders."'
He uses a large exercise ball for his strength exercises."
As riders sit on the ball and roll it gently from side to
side they can feel their muscles move in their back and
legs. Two thousand muscles support the human spine. He
teaches students how to feel perfect balance on the ball and
remember it when they ride.
Philman also uses two scales to teach balance. He has
his students stand on the scales. They always place more of
'their weight to one side. They do the same when they ride
their horses. Philman works with them to achieve balance.
The horses benefit from a balanced rider.
Philman graduated from a school of human massage in
Gainesville..When he started his massage therapy practice
in Trenton, it wasn't lucrative, he recalled with a smile.
He learned about the Don Dorand Equine Sport Massage
School. He became licensed to massage horses.
Some ofPhilman's horse customers are now referred by
veterinarians.
He is also a member of the Running Horse Association.
During competitions, he makes himself available to riders
andtheir mounts formassage. Lastyear, ahorse he massaged
won a $20,000 purse in a running horse competition.
Philman estimates he has 400 to 500 horse massage
customers. Though he doesn't see them every year, he said
they know his work.
"They recognize wha you do for them," he said.
Philman can be reached in Bell at (386) 935-1902 or on

It pays to upgrade your insulation. Up to $300.


SAVE THE
WATTS GUY
TIPS AND HINTS FOR SAVING ENERGY


Dear STW Guy: I love Florida
weather. For me, the hotter and
steamier outside, the better.
But inside my home, I prefer a
more refreshing temperature.
Any ideas on how to keep my
house cool and comfortable?
- Hot House Blues

Dear Hot House: You probably
know adequate attic insulation
helps your house stay
comfortable, but did you know
you can also insulate your
home's exterior porous block
walls? These walls common
in many Florida homes are


not very energy efficient, and
may allow unwanted air and
moisture to enter your house.
Since heating and cooling
account for almost half of the
energy used in an average home,
improving your wall insulation
with injected wall foam can
help reduce your energy bills,
as well provide an effective
sound barrier to outside noise.
I'd advise you to start with a
free Home Energy Check from
Progress Energy. Their Energy
Efficiency Advisors will assess
your home's efficiency and
determine if your walls could


benefit from wall insulation.
So call 866.712.3409 or visit
savethewatts.com to get
started improving your home's
wall insulation. You'll not only
be more comfortable, you'll
also be eligible for a rebate of
up to $300.

Dear STW Guy: Because our
family has grown, we've just
moved into a larger home.
With more square footage
to heat and cool, we try to
be more energy efficient by
changing out air filters and
replacing standard light bulbs


with energy-saving bulbs.
But our large family needs
even bigger savings. Can we
really save more energy, even
though we're in a larger home?
- Room to Save

Dear Room: Yes you can. You
already have many good habits
in place that allow you to use
energy wisely. Your next step is
to get a free Home Energy Check
from Progress Energy. It will


Progress Energy


help you identify specific areas
in your home where you can
save energy maybe by fixing

Chiefland beats


Hamilton 43-6
Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

JASPER-With the bad taste of a 35-21 loss to Williston
still lingering, Chiefland took to the road Sept. 19 for' a
battle against Hamilton County.
The final outcome was just a tad sweeter.
The Indians raced to a 21-0 first-quarter lead, eventually
settling for a 43-6 win in the Trojans' home opener.
Hamilton managed only 54 yards of offense during
the game, 42 on a fake punt pass. Conversely, Chiefland
seemed to move the ball at will at times, racking up 364
yards 243 on the ground.
The Indians got all the points they would need on their
first drive of the game. Quarterback Brent Slaughter lofted
a high arching pass down the left sideline, and wideout
Cantrell Richardson caught the ball in stride. The 37-yard
toss culminated a six-play, 66-yard drive that included an
18tyard-run by ,Stephen Davis. Garrett Schmidt's extra
point put Chiefland up 7-0.
Moments later, on Hamilton's first play from scrimmage,
Richardson intercepted a pass from quarterback Anthony
SIngram and returned the ball to the Trojan 40-yard line.
Davis ran for 22 yards, and Slaughter for 18, before Zach
Ryan galloped into the end zone from five yards out for a
.touchdown. Schmidt's extra point made it 14-0 Chiefland
S with less than six minutes gone.
T y---,V I_ The Indians would add another first-quarter score -
Chiefland running back Stephen Davis leaves a jumble of Trojans in his wake on a first half run during the on an 18-yard pass from Slaughter to Davis. The senior
Indians' 43-6 win Friday at Hamilton County. See Indians, Page 8B


Trinity Catholic air attack too much for Red Devils

Teams tally 15 touchdowns, 102 points

Story and photos by Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor


Utilizing their Division One college-committed quarterback and two outstanding
receivers, the Trinity Catholic Celtics connected for six passing touchdowns five in
a high scoring first half to subdue the Williston Red Devils 63-42 Friday at Booster
Stadium in Williston.
The air attack started after both teams put points on the board in the first minute of the
ball game, with two outstanding runs by each team.
The Celtics Kedrick Rhodes broke loose on the first play of the game and scampered
63 yards for the Celtics' initial score. On the Red Devils first possession, Travis Evans
blasted up the middle untouched for a 64-yard touchdown run to tie the contest at 7-7 with
just one minute off the clock.
Then.the game went to the air for the Celtics, as the University of Purdue commit Rob
Henry found Kadron Boon for touchdowns passes on three consecutive possessions. The
passes of 23, 55, and 30 yards put the Celtics on top 28-7.
Williston got a touchdown back on its next possession with Evans breaking loose for
a 55-yard gallop. But the Celtics quickly moved the ball inside the Red Devils' 10-yard
line, eventually scoring on a one-yard plunge by Henry. Trinity led 35-14 with 4:10 left
in the first half.
Red Devil Deonte Welch brought the Williston fans back into the ball game on the
ensuing kickoff, returning it 91 yards for a touchdown. The extra point kick was no good,
however, making the score 35-20 with 4:02 left in the first half..
Following a Trinity Catholic punt, Red Devil quarterback Courtney Days found
Brandon Scott for a 45-yard touchdown pass with 1:05' remaining in the first half. The
Red Devils went for the two-point try, and Welch took the hand off and scampered into
the end zone to pull the Red Devils to within one score of the Celtics at 35-28.
The Celtics took the kickoff and wasted little time getting back on the scoreboard.
Henry connected with Khiry McDonald for a 46-yard touchdown pass with 40 seconds
left, giving his team a 42-28 advantage at the half.
The Celtics used theii air attack again in the third quarter to move the ball to the Red
Devils' six-yard line before Jeremiah Gates ran in for the Celtics touchdown, making the

Bronson gets past Cedar Key


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

The Bronson Lady Eagle
Volleyball team made the long
bus ride to Cedar Key, Sept. 22,
to take on the .Lady Sharks in a
volleyball match. Bronson took
with 'them a 1-5 season record.
Bronson wasted .little time
showing a different attitude, and
a total team effort, as they swept
the match in three straight games
from the Lady Sharks, 25-19, 25-
22, and 25-15.
Bronson Coach Sherrie
Schuler said she was extremely
pleased with what she was seeing
from her team.
"The entire team was playing
with a level of enthusiasm I


hope they bring to the rest of the
season," Schuler said, following
the match. .
In game one, Bronson jumped
out to an early 10-point lead before
Lady Shark Sam Beckham led her
team back to within 3 points with
some great floor play. With the
score 22-19, Bronson's Brittany
Smith served three straight aces to
give Bronson the win 25-19.
Game two saw the Sharks
pull out to a 12-3 lead behind
the floor play of Jordan Watson
and Caely Hibbits, along with
Beckham. The Sharks ran their
lead to 20-12 and looked to have
game two under control. But
Bronson's Sara Shouse had other
ideas as she served nine straight
points, including eight aces, to put


Sharks


Bronson in front ;21-20, before
losing her serve. With the game
tied at 21-21, the Sharks took a
one-point lead at 22-21, but a
big kill shot from Elizabeth Gay
tied the. game at 22-22. Smith
closed the game out for Bronson
with three ace serves for the 25-
.22 win.
Bronson jumped ahead early
in game three, and held a large
lead throughout the game.
Michelle DiMaggio made
some good saves for the Sharks
returning, several balls that
looked like sure points for
Bronson. Bronson took game
three 25-15 to win the match.
The Sharks fell to 0-7 for the
season, while Bronson improved
to 2-5 for the season.


Branford tops Bronson

Staff Writer

Bronson High School lost 33-14 Friday night to Branford High
School in a game of smash mouth football fought mostly in the middle
of the field.
Coach Al Cooksey said the game was lost when his defensive line
couldn't shed blocks to make tackles. The result was Branford gained
three to seven yards on runs.
"We looked at them on film and they block very well," Cooksey
said. "We're not ready to stop that."
It was Bronson's first loss of theyear. The Eagles beat Upper Room
Christian and Oak Hall earlier. They travel to St. Augustine Thursday
to play Florida School for the Deaf and Blind. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
Branford scored the opening touchdown in Friday's clash, but
Bronson answered quickly, turning a fumble recovery into a touchdown
by Kelby Barber on a quarterback sneak. Barber kicked the extra point
to give the Eagles a 7-6 lead.
With seconds left in the half, Bronson, trailing 12-7, drove to the 10-
yard-line, but Barber's field goal attempt hit the right side upright and

Before you say, "What were
you thinking last week in your
opinion column picking Williston
to beat Trinity Catholic and .
BronsontowinagainstBranford," p
let me give you my answer early,
right at the beginning.
I picked Williston to beat
Trinity Catholic, but was unaware
that over in Marion County during
the summer, Trinity picked up
a quarterback all the way from
Mississippi. I found out too late
that he is a Division I commit to Purdue University. He
proceeded to throw six touchdown passes, and ran for two
touchdowns, accounting for eight of Trinity's nine scores.
Take those away, and Williston wins 42-7. And don't forget,
Trinity played their starters the entire game.
.And then there was my other pick, for Bronson to beat
Branford. All I can say about this game is Bronson kept the
final score a lot closer than it had been for quite some time.
. Chiefland kept me on the plus side as they dominated
Hamilton County. That leaves me at one pick above five


hundred for the season, and that will be okay, as long a
can do better. I guess I have to do a better job looking at t
competition our three Levy County public high schools fa
off against each week.
Now for my picks this week. It is just my own opini'
Bronson will travel to Florida D&B tonight and come hon
with a win. This is the team Bronson played last year, a
the game was called at half time due to lightning. Brons
was trailing by two touchdowns at that point. Two wee
later when the teams played the second half, Bronson car
from behind for the win. Bronson will repeat this year. .
Chiefland is at home Sept. 26, as they play host to Tayl
County. Chiefland.is coming off a big win on the road, a
will continue their winning ways against the team fro
Perry. Chiefland continues to get ready for the start of distr
play in two weeks. It is just my own opinion Chiefland w
win this game.
Williston makes'the trip this Friday most teams doi
enjoy. They will travel to Dixie County to face the Bea
on the Bears' home turf. Williston's running back TraN
Evans will have another 200-yard running game, his third
four outings. Even with the Bears star running back Rodn
Scott, who is a threat to score every time he touches t
football, the Williston defense will be ready. It is just r
own opinion Williston will win this game at the Bears De
Again, this is just my own opinion.

Seven games into the season, the Williston

solid six players on a team with lots of talent

three straight games, 25-14, 25-21, and 25-9.
In game one the Indians tied the score at, 12-
12 behind some. outstanding floor play and net
play. The Indians went on to outscore Williston
13-2 for the 25-14 win in game one.
Game two was more of the same as Williston
continued to struggle with their serves, and using
new setters throughout the game. Game two was
tied 21-21 before the Indians scored four straight
points to win the game 25-21. Williston's Kim'
Dobbins made several outstanding saves in game
two and Julie Fugate had two kill shots in the

serves in game three, and the Indians continued
to control the play at the net. The Indians held
a commanding lead in game three despite
a good team effort by Williston's Haley


Beckham, Kayla Thorrington, and Dobbins. The
Indians went on to win game three 25-9 to take
the match in three straight games.
"We are still looking for those solid six'
players," said Williston Coach Kim Nivala.

just could not get points off our serves tonight.
I used several different setters tonight, and we
are continuing to work on getting those solid six
players on the court," Nivala said.
Williston drops their season record to 3-
4 overall and 2-2 in district play. The Indians
raised their season record to 7-2 overall and 3-1

The first Bell Lady Bulldog Invitational Volleyball Tournament was
not kind to the two Levy County teams entered in the tournament.
The Chiefland Lady Indians and the.Williston Lady Red Devils were
part of the B Pool parings, and both teams dropped their first two matches
on Sept. 19, to Trenton and Meadowbrook. In the second day of action
on Sept. 20, the Indians and Red Devils were matched against each other
in the best of three game matches.
The Red Devils took game one 25-20 as Kenya Gardner had back-to-
back kill shots to spark the Red Devils. Kristen Spires ended the game
with five service points for the Red Devils.
In the second game the Indians stepped up their play as five different
players scattered some very timely kill shots early and often in the game.
Taylore Fuller, Shelbie Hastings, Charissa Morris, Maddie Rutkowski,
and Brittany Davis each had spikes in the game, and Morris added two
kills down the stretch to give the Indians the win 25-21 to even the match
at one game each.
In the third and final game the Red Devils were down 8-5 before Kim
Dobbins served three straight aces to tie the game 8-8. Dobbins then set
up her teammates for three additional points while holding serve to give
the Red Devils an 11-8 lead. Williston went on to take game three 15-9
scoring the last four points of the match. The Red Devils advanced to the
fifth and sixth place bracket in the tournament, while the Indians moved

Jack Spann (left) and Troy Hamberger killed the
alligator on the Suwannee River.


Group catches


huge alligator


This 9-foot 11-inch alligator was taken in the
Suwannee River on Aug. 29 by Jack Spann and Troy
Hamberger, along with helpers Stephanie Czabon
and Kacey Hamberger. The four of them launched off
at Fowlers Bluff an hour or so after dark. Sometime
around midnight they hooked into the giant alligator.
After fighting it for hours they finally got him up to
the boat and realized how big he really was. It wasn't
until they actually got him in the boat they discovered
he was missing half his tail. It looked as if it had been
bitten off when the animal was younger.
The next day, while cleaningthe gator, measurements
were taken. They found that this alligator's head
and body size were actually larger than the 12-foot
alligator that they killed a few years back. Being
experienced alligator hunters, they estimated with the
gator's full tail it would have been an easy 13- to 14-
foot alligator. They are still hunting for the big one,
but they might need a bigger boat.

Log Cabin Quilters,
Log Cabin Quilters met Sept. 18 at the Levy County Quilt Museum.
Sue Sharp brought in a beautiful quilt she had pieced and started to machine quilt
it. She didn't like the way it looked so she took out what she had done, started with a
different pattern she liked better, and it turned out beautiful.
We had two couples from Williston come over and Norma talked to us about putting a
booth up at the Levy County Fair. We are still deciding if we will or not. We would like to
support the Fair and if we are to do it, we will.
Nick Turner and six boys were out on Tuesday. These boys come out knowing just
what to do and how it's done. Thanks Lancaster.
We will soon be reserving the bus to take us to the State Fair in Tampa in February. We
do this as it gives people time to decide if they can go or not. More about that later.
Lunch today was cheese and mac, kraut, squash, biscuits, cabbage casserole, beef stew,
pear cake, pear pie, Jello salad, strawberry cake, and so much more.

Springhouse Qdeters

The 2008 raffle quilt for Springhouse Quilters is now on display at Ameris Bank in
Trenton. This is a light, soft, green with lavender and deep purple stack and whack quilt.
Raffle tickets are available at the bank. The quilt will be given away on Dec. 1 during
the Springhouse Quilter's annual Christmas party. The winner does not have to be present
at the drawing. Springhouse appreciates Ameris Bank allowing the quilt to be placed on
display in their lobby plus sponsoring the quilt for Springhouse Quilters.
Both groups of Springhouse Quilters will be busy this week with workshops. The
day group will be having a reverse applique workshop and the night group will be again
making pillowcases for the cancer children at Shands. This has been a unique project
for Springhouse: sharing their sewing talents and fabrics with those who need a special
touch.
A member of Springhouse Quilters, Onnie Mae Colson-Fowler, has been honored this
month by having her quilts on display at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop in Trenton.
These are wonderful traditional quilts and have received many good comments from
those viewing the quilts.

Williston tops Lady Indians in Chiefland


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

"It makes a big
difference when you have
all your players and they
can play their position,"
said a happy Coach Kim
Nivala following the
district win over Chiefland
Tuesday. "Kene' Mincey
returned as setter and this
allowed Kim Dobbins to
play her hitter position, and
the results lifted Williston
to the win in four games,


25-15, 25-27, 25-8, and 25-
15.
Dobbins served up three
aces and had three big
kill shots in game one for
Williston. Game two was
played with several big point
runs by both teams. Chiefland
jumped out to a 19-11 lead
behind Taylore Fuller, and
Maddie Rutkowski, and
Shelbie Hastings' floor play.
Williston's Kenya Gardner
served Williston to the lead
at 20-19. The two teams
exchanged leads up till. the


game was tied at 24-24.
Rutkowski had two kills and
Charissa Morris slammed an
ace serve in the hole for the
27-25 Chiefland win.
Game three was all
Mallary Brochetti. Brochetti
took over the serve with
Williston holding a 7-2 lead.
When she lost serve, Williston
had taken a 19-2 lead over
Chiefland. Williston went on
to win game three 25-8.
Williston was ahead 21-9
in game four and although
Chiefland made a short lived


run, Williston went on to win
game four and the match 25-
15.
Williston is now 3-2 in
district play .and 4-4 overall.
Chiefland is 2-3 in district
play and 3-4 overall.
The junior varsity match
was an exciting match.
Williston won game one 29-
27, as the teams were tied
from 12-12 till the two point
surge by Williston at the end.
Chiefland won game two 25-
21 in a game that was tied
from .16-16 right up to 21-21.


Williston's Mallary Brochetti goes up for a shot
over Shelbie Hastings and the Lady Indians.


Indians. from Paae 1 B


were part ot a balanced offense tnat amassed


The Indians cheerleaders kept the crowd from Chiefland alert and into the game.


tailback went horizontal on the play, stretching out for a
perfect diving catch with a horde of Trojan defenders on
his heels.
But as well as the Chiefland offense played in the game,
*this night was all about the Indians defense, which bottled
up Ingram and the Trojans all evening. Despite getting
29 yards on a busted play midway through the second
quarter, Hamilton still finished with minus five yards on
the ground. Chiefland also got a second-half safety when
Davis brought down Ingram in the end zone.
The stout defensive performance was a .good thing
to see, Chiefland Head Coach Ajay Ulmer said after the
game.
"I think the big thing was the defense got after them
tonight," he said. "We did not have that first-half lull like
we did last week. Our kids came out and played pretty
intensely from the start, and, that set the tone right away.
We did not let them do much offensively other than a few
plays here and there."
Hamilton got its only points in the game when Trojan
linebacker Robert Davis picked off a tipped Slaughter pass
and returned it 76 yards for the score.
Chiefland had no such offensive problems, getting big
runs from Davis, along with Tommy Sheffield, Jakarr
White, and Jamantye Thompson. White scored twice, on a
one-yard plunge late in the third quarter, and on a dazzling
23-yard run with seven minutes left.
Slaughter finished with seven completions for 121
yards and two scores.
Ulmer said his team strives for just such a balanced
attack every week.
"Offensively we were able to mix it up," he said. "We
got a couple of big pass plays early, and that got our
quarterback and receivers some confidence. That is what
you have to do have some good things happen and get
some confidence. It just makes you better."
Ulmer said that the big win over Hamilton will not quite
erase the sting of the loss to Williston, but it helps.
"That sting will always be there, but this put us right
back on the winning track," he said. "To win a game on the
road is always a good thing. I think we will come out next
week and be prepared to play well against Taylor County.

careened to the side. Barber appeared to have been forced
into a hasty kick by a missed block.
,Virgil Greenlee scored Bronson's final touchdown on a
13-yard scamper in the third quarter, leaving the score 19-
14. But Branford used its option offense to score twice more.
Greenlee ran for 73 yards and a touchdown, leading the
Eagles in rushing.
Barber ran six times for 32 yards and a touchdown.
Jamie Waybright threw for 27 yards and rushed for 42..
Rudolpho Contreras rushed for 36 yards. C.J. King caught
two passes for 34 yards. (
Defensively for. Bronson, Harold Hicks had seven
tackles and one forced fumble; Waybright, seven tackles
and one blocked extra point; Mike Knapp, five tackles, one'
forced fumble and one fumble recovery; Mike Sinclair, 14,
tackles and one sack; and Robert Evan, one tackle and one
fumble recovery.
Cooksey is in his first season at Bronson. He has a new
coaching staff. Branford Coach Bill Wiles and his staff
have been together three years. Cooksey said that makes a
difference. He said his coaching staff hasn't had the time to
polish the team's)skills.
But he said the loss will be a learning experience at
this stage of the season. He believes the team, with its 13


seniors and its desire to win, will get back on track.
"I'm proud of our guys. This right here will make us a
football team -- to lose early and find out what we need to
fix," Cooksey said.
Wiles credited the win to a team effort and said his
defense kept the Bronson offense off the field.
Wiles said his young quarterback, junior John Perry had
a good game, running for four touchdowns, but he couldn't
have done it by himself.
"It's a team deal,' Wiles said. "He couldn't run if they
weren't blocking for him."
Wiles said the team used an offense he installed this fall
for the first time.
He said Branford played 17-18 players on both sides of
the ball, which helped the team. Bronson doesn't have a
large number of players, which mean't. Cooksey couldn't
rotate players as much.
Wiles credited Cooksey and his staff with good
coaching. He said it was the most fired up Bronson team
he has played against.
Cooksey said his staff is still trying to find what
works defensively and the coaches are still stressing the
fundamentals of blocking and tackling. He said the team will
continue to improve as the players learn good technique.

score 48-28 with 8:28 on the clock. After the Red Devils turned the ball over on a fumble,
Henry took the ball into the end zone from the 15-yard line to put the Celtics ahead 56-28.
Williston's Dalton Edwards scored from 11 yards out to put the score at 56-35 with just
over two minutes remaining in the third quarter, and Evans scored his third touchdown of the
night from four yards out to open the fourth quarter. That pulled the Red Devils to within two
scores at 56-42 with 11 minutes remaining in the game.
But with 6:47 left, Henry ended any chances the Red Devils had, hitting McDonald with
a 20-yard pass for the final touchdown of the game.
Evans ran for 232 yards on just 18 carries for the Red Devils, to lead all rushers.
"My offensive line really took care of me tonight," he said following the game. "They had
some big holes for me to run through. When you score that many points against a team like
Trinity Catholic, and you hang in there like that, you know you're onto something."
Coach Jamie Baker told his team after the game, "I am still excited about our season, and
still excited about coaching you guys. Most of the players you faced tonight are college-
bound players, and we did a good job against them. Think about what you did tonight and
think about how to get better in our next game."
The Red Devils are now 2-1 for the season and will travel to Dixie County to play the
Dixie County Bears on Sept. 26. Trinity remains undefeated at 3-0 and will play PK Yonge
on Sept. 26.
