Sheriff's office targets mud

boggers with traffic check


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


An unregulated mud bogging
area near Bronson will be the tar-
get Sunday of a DUI and driver's
license checkpoint by the Levy
County Sheriff's Office.
Capt. Evan Sullivan said the
checkpoint will take place at th'e
junction of County Road 337 and
N.E. 1251h Street. Deputies will
check drivers for signs of DUI
and will ask for their driver's
license, registration and insur-
ance.
They will also check vehicle
safety equipment.
Sulli'van said residents in the
area have complained bitterly
about the mud bogs, but because
the mud bogs are on private
property and the owners have not
voiced objection, and no admis-
sion is being charged, the county
has no regulatory authority.
"The community is in an-out-
cry," Sullivan said. "They have'
no money involved, so we can't
shut it down."
Mud bogs, for those unfamiliar


with the "sport," involve trucks rac-
ing through deep mud. The trucks
often get stuck in the mud.
Sullivan made the announcement
of the driver's license checkpoint
at Tuesday's county commission
meeting. He said state law requires
a public announcement of upcom-
ing checkpoints.
Commissioner Tony Parker said
he was familiar with the mud bog-
ging area. He said drivers speed on
the road leading to the mud bog
and they throw out beer bottles and
litter.
"That road; they speed down
there. They throw out beer and lit-
ter," lhe said.
He said the mud bogging occurs
in two wetland areas. Participants
come from as far away as Alabama
and Georgia to, compete. Parker
said he supports the sheriff's office
decision to set up a checkpoint that
the mud bog participants must past
through. ;
"I'll tell you '"hat; we're going
to send a strong, strong message to
the people in the community," he


Progress Energy Florida will
begin construction sometime next
year on a $25 million to $30 mil-
.lion training and energy educa-
tion center about five miles north
of downtown Inglis, the company
confirmed Tuesday.
The new training and education
center will be built along U.S. 19 at
the entrance to the proposed twin
nuclear power plants that Prog-
ress Energy Florida (PEF) hopes
to construct. The twin plants will
be constructed deep in a planted
pine forest about 2 V2 miles east of
the training and education center.
PEF officials expect the licensing


constructed. The licensing process
is long and complicated. Many
agencies are involved. The energy
education and training center will
be in operation long.before the li-
censing process is completed.
Wendy Home, PEF spokeswom-
an, said the company must have
its training program and training
center in place before the U.S.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission
can certify the program.
The company wants to hire as
many Levy County residents as
possible. PEF is working with
area colleges, universities and vo-
cational career schools to set up

Cedar Key draws thousands


to annual Seafood Festival


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


To the untrained eye, it may have
looked like Cedar Key had been
invaded last weekend.
The annual Cedar Key Seafood
Festival brought a massive crowd
to the island city.
Thousands of people bathed in
the October sunshine and dined on
seafood sold by local community


groups at the city park.
Along Dock Street on the water-'
front, customers politely waited
on a second floor balcony over-
looking the Gulf of Mexico for
a chance to eat at Anne's Other
Place.
Many restaurants on Dock Street
had 30 minute waiting times.
Local business owners were
happy.

Edison: campaign all about kids Hastings: providing leadership


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Jeff Edison has spent 23 years
in education as a teacher and
administrator, and he believes
he can do what is best for Levy
County's children if
he is elected the next
superintendent of
schools.
"To me, it's all
about the kids and
trying to do what's
best for them," Edi-
son said.
Edison has been
married to his wife
Teri forl7 years. She
is a guidance coun-
selor at Chiefland High School.
They have two children, Sarah, a
seventh grader at Chiefland Mid-
dle School and Jacob, a fourth
grader at Chiefland Elementary
School.
' Edison is from Romeo, Florida.


His father was born and raised
in Morriston. His mother was a
former lunch room manager and
school bus driver. His father was
a farmer and worked for the De-
partment of Transportation.
Edison, who holds a Master's
Degree in educa-
tional leadership,
was a teacher for 11
years in Levy Coun-
ty, the first six at
Yankeetown School.
In 1996 he was
named Yankeetown
School Teacher of
the Year. He moved
,, from Yankeetown
School to Chiefland
Middle School where he served
four years as assistant principal
and four years as principal. He
is in his fourth year as Assistant
Superintendent of Curriculum
and Instruction.

educational and technical programs to train engineers, technical people, nuclear op-
erators and even high-skilled welders.
PEF has provided a $17,000 grant to the Levy County Schools Education Founda-
tion to fund math, science and career programs that would provide students with skills
necessary to attend community colleges and universities that offer training for jobs in
the nuclear field.
Home said the energy education center will provide, information on nuclear energy,
wind energy, solar energy, and energy conservation. Young people from all over the
state, as well as locally, will have an opportunity to visit the facility to learn .about
energy.
According to Home energy education will be housed in a separate building from the
training center. An auditorium is also planned. The auditorium will be available for
use by the community. She said the training and education center is currently in the
design process.
The training center will have a nuclear power plant control-room simulator identical
to the one used at the new plant site.

Illegal Hunting

PEF is in the process of improving graded earthen roads leading to the future plant
site. The two plants will be constructed on 35 acres, but the fenced plant site will con-
sist of 900 acres. The area will be heavily guarded by trained security forces.
The company owns approximately 5,200 acres of vacant property stretching south-
ward to County Road 40. Much of the forested area will be available for passive rec-
reation such as nature walking trails after the plants are built, but the land is not open
for public use now.
Danny Roderick, project engineer for the twin nuclear power plants, said PEF is











The Department announces receipt of an application
(DEP File No. 38-272432-002-ES) for a permit from Progress
Energy Florida, P.O. Box 14042, PEF-903, St. Petersburg,
Florida, requesting a Submerged Land Easement for the
purpose of the construction of a bridged vehicular access
way over the Inglis Lock Bypass Channel.

The proposed project Will be located in Inglis, Florida, in
Section 6, Township 17S, Range 17E, Levy County.

This application is being processed and is available for
public inspection during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to
5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at

having trouble with hunters trespassing on company property and he said the com-
pany will begin prosecuting those who illegally enter the property. He said gates are
being destroyed along with locks.
Company scientists are working on the-property studying the wildlife and the eco-
system as part of the permitting process. Others are building roads or doing testing.
"We're going to begin prosecuting people, not to be mean, but because our people
don't want to be shot," Roderick said. He said the property was once leased by a hunt-
ing club, but the land is no longer available for hunting.

Pumping Water

Plans call for PEF to build four 48-inch water intake pipelines from the Cross Flor-
ida Barge Canal north to the plant site. The pipelines will be situated about 100 yards
west of the entrance to Inglis Lock Recreational Area.
The nuclear power plants will draw about 130 million gallons of water daily from
the barge canal, but most of the water will be returned to the Gulf of Mexico through
a pipeline that runs south to the barge canal, Roderick said. The outfall pipe will run
west to the Cross Florida Barge Canal Bridge, and then south to the existing outfall
canal at the Crystal River Energy Complex.
Roderick said residents can expect to see some construction on the barge canal in
the near future. PEF will be constructing a barge unloading area on the north bank of
the canal about 150 yards west of the Inglis Lock. Large pieces of equipment and con-
struction material can be unloaded there and carried along a future heavy equipment
road to County Road 40. The company is planning to replace a bridge over the Inglis
bypass canal with a bridge strong enough to carry the weight of heavy equipment and
construction material. Material and equipment will be carried across nearby County
Road 40 at night to lessen traffic delays. Traffic will be blocked for about five minutes
at a time five or six times a month to allow equipment to be carried across CR 40 to
PEF property, according to Roderick.

No Harmful Discharges,
Safety Features

Roderick said federal law prohibits PEF from discharging radioactivity harmful to
the public. He said the state will monitor air and water quality around the plant site.
However, he said, short-lived isotopes which are barely detectable and decay within a
few hours, will be present in the water discharged from the plant.
He said the plant itself has built-in safety mechanisms that can shut the plant down
with or without human intervention. He said the Cross Florida Barge Canal has plenty
of water to cool the plant even at low tide, but he said even if a Hurricane blew all the
water out of the canal, the plant could still safely shut down.
"This plant doesn't need any water from the Gulf of Mexico to shut itself down,"
he said. "These plants will have the lowest risk of an accident of any plants in the
world."
Earlier nuclear power plants relied on water to shut down plants.
The Advanced Passive 1000 plant built by Westinghouse will be the type of reactor
used at the Levy County site. It will be designed to operate for 60 years. Both nuclear
reactors will be constructed on the same 35-acre site, but they will operate indepeh-
dently of one another, Roderick said.
. About 900 employees will work at the plant site, but Roderick said an additional
2,100 jobs will be spun off in the Levy County economy as a result of plant opera-
tions.
He said the Crystal River nuclear power plant, located about three miles south of
Inglis, has been an economic stimulus for the city of Crystal River.
"You look at those businesses in Crystal River. Many got kicked off because they
were tied to the plant," he said. "Those communities satisfied the needs of families
working at the plant."
Roderick states that restaurants, motels and RV parks will spring up in Levy County
in preparation for construction of the plants and their operation. He said people need
to think about whether they want to take advantage of those business opportunities.
Young people who are now ninth graders, and who are about the right age to work
at the twin nuclear power plants when they begin operating in 2016 and 2027, need
to begin thinking about whether they want the training, to work there according to
Roderick.
"The important thing is for people to think about what they want to do," he said.

WAG promotes lofty ambition at Canine Play Day_____


Story ana Photos by Steve Jarboe
Staff Writer


The Williston Animal Group (WAG) held a Halloween
Party on October 18 which featured many of their previ-
ously rescued animals as special guests.
Only a few years ago abandoned and neglected ani-
mals were needlessly destroyed. Since its formation,
WAG has rescued dogs, cats, and other critters and now
almost all of these are placed with new families.
With beautiful new grounds for a permanent new facil-
ity within reach and the opportunity to provide far more
community services, the city of Williston has commit-
ted to WAG's potential by providing the organization
with land. The facility's address at Airport Drive reflects
WAG's lofty ambitions.
With a permanent facility, WAG will develop programs
for after school and during the summer, and commu-
nity service programs for the youth in our communities.
Such programs will include life skills and values devel-
opment for the adolescents involved as they work with
the animals in their care. This experience will carry over
into the lives of young adults as they mature. The oppor-
tunity to work with health care and senior communities
to enrich their days is also available.
This future modem facility will house the animal shel-
ter together with appropriate medical facilities and an
education center. This combination will provide the ba-
sis for improving the care of abandoned and abused ani-
--pp*' f~ifKP1


mals and a platform for developing greater awareness of
humane behavior in the schools and community of Levy
County.
While WAG is not striving to be the biggest, nor the
most prestigious, they are striving to be in first place
when it comes to caring for animals that cross their
path.
The Williston Animal Group has adopted the slogan,
"from concept to concrete" as they seek investments in
their organization.
When completed the facility will include: an adoption
center and medical facility, kennels with plenty of space,
an education center, stables for abused 4nd neglected
horses, dog training facilities, and a pet memorial and
cemetery.
When this facility is completed, WAG can reach into
the community to provide care for the abused and aban-
doned animals, and involve the community through ed-
ucational programs working with both adolescents and
adults.
For those citizens wishing to become a friend and wag
a happy tale, you can contact WAG by telephone at. 352-
528-9888.

Social Security Announces 5.8 Percent
Benefit Increase for 2009
Monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security
Income benefits for more than 55 million Americans will
increase 5.8 percent in 2009, the Social Security Admin-
istration announced today. The 5.8 percent increase is
the largest since 1982.
Social Security and Supplemental Security Income
benefits increase automatically each year based on the
rise in the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price
Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers
(CPI-W), from the third quarter of the prior year to the
corresponding period of the current year. This year's
increase in the CPI-W was 5.8 percent.
The 5.8 percent Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA)
will begin with benefits that over 50 million Social Se-
curity beneficiaries receive in January 2009. Increased
payments to more than 7 million Supplemental Security
Income beneficiaries will begin on December 31.
Some other changes that take effect in January of each
year are based on the increase in average wages. Based
on that increase, the maximum amount of earnings sub-
ject to the Social Security tax (taxable maximum) will
increase to $106,800 from $102,000. Of the estimated
164 million workers who will pay Social Security taxes
in 2009, about 11'million will pay higher taxes as a re-
sult of the increase in the taxable maximum.
Information about Medicare changes for 2009 can be
found at www.Medicare.gov.

Eviction of tenants and guests:
when police action may be taken

Hello and welcome to Your Sheriff's Comer. Deputy
Sheriff's are frequently called to disturbances arising out
of landlord and tenant disputes. The landlord is usually
quite vocal about his or her legal rights in the dispute,
and will often demand that the responding officers take
some action, usually eviction of the tenant.
The Florida Residential Landlord and Tenant Act
governs most of the traditionally recognized rental ar-
rangements for dwellings, such as those for apartments,
town homes, duplexes, and single family housing units.
In tenancy situations covered by the Act, the only way
that a landlord can legally
recover possession of the
dwelling unit without the
consent of the tenant (evict
the tenant) is to obtain an
action for possession in the
county court of the county
where the premises is lo-
cated. If successful, a writ
of possession will be is-
sued to the sheriff, who is
authorized to put the land-
lord in possession after a SH ERIFF'S
prescribed notice period.
A lawful eviction can only CORNER
be accomplished by a law SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
enforcement officer acting
pursuant to a civil writ of possession.
There are three categories of residential or sleeping
accommodations from which persons may be removed
by law enforcement officers after they have been told to
leave by the operator of the premises:
The first class involves hotels and motels. The ini-
tial determination that a law enforcement officer has to
make is whether the premises concerned qualify as the
type of premises to which the laws authorizing arrest
under Florida Statutes apply. If a landlord claims that
the premises qualifies as a public lodging establishment
(hotel or motel), the premises must consist of any unit,
group of units, dwelling, building or group of buildings
within a single complex of buildings, which is rented to
guests more than three times in a calendar year for peri-
ods of less than 30 days or 1 calendar month, whichever
is less, or which is advertised or held out to the public as
a place regularly rented to guests.
-Thqsecond type pf living arrangements from which law
enrforcement failfits Vheithpibplic or priei f i tlhe obccaiinarcy
is incidental to the provision of medical, geriatric, edu-
cational, counseling, religious, or similar services.
Recreational vehicle parks are the third and final type
of residential or sleeping accommodations from which
persons may be removed by law enforcement officers.
For a premises to qualify as a recreational vehicle park,
it must be set aside and offered for the parking of five or
more recreational vehicles or tents for sleeping or eat-
ing.
Sometimes I receive phone calls complaining that my
Deputies would not assist in the evicting of a tenant. As
you can see, the Deputies have legal restraints to some-
times forcibly removing the person from the residence.
Hopefully this will educate you on your legal rights and
I assure you that if the Deputies can legally assist you,
they will gladly do so.

Sheriff's arrests

Williston arrests
A Bronson man who was stopped for a traffic
infraction on Oct. 1 Iand refused to take a blood
alcohol test was arrested for drunken driving and drug
possession, police said.
Jack Randall McKinley, 50, Bronson, was stopped
for having a non-working headlight at about 11:50 p.m.
As he exited his vehicle, Officer C. Strachan noticed
McKinley was unsteady and had to lean against his
vehicle. He smelled of alcohol.
He told the officer he was returning from the Florida
Gator football game. The officer ran his identification
information through dispatch and found McKinley
was wanted in Alachua County on a warrant for fraud,
insufficient funds.
The officer found a small pipe from McKinley's
pocket with residue. It was the type of pipe commonly
used to smoke marijuana. McKinley said several times
he had been drinking beer at the Gator game. At the
county jail, he refused to take a breathalyzer test to
determine how much alcohol he had consumed.
A Williston man is facing two felony charges for
threatening three city police officers and trying to incite,
a riot, police said.
Amster Leon Brown, 22, 18 S.W. 8th Place, Apart.
203, was arrested on charges of corruption by threat
against a public servant, inciting or encouraging a riot


and disorderly conduct.
Police said the Oct. 9 incident that resulted in the
charges began when city police officer Kevin B.
Sheppard, Deputy Clint Anderson and city officer
James Tegart were walking on foot patrol through the
Arbours Apartments when they saw two men run from
one of the buildings, apparently as a result of seeing
law enforcement.
The officers tried unsuccessfully to catch up to the
men. When the officers returned to the area where they
saw the men, they began searching for contraband,
narcotics or weapons, but found nothing that would
indicate why the men ran. Anderson and his K-9
partner, Robiek, conducted a walk-around search of
several vehicles that the men had run past, but found
nothing, an arrest report said.
Tegert then saw Brown emerge from a building and
attempted to speak to him, but Brown began yelling at
the three officers, the report said. He accused officers of
conducting an illegal search of the vehicles and being
racists. Brown grew louder and became more upset.
He told Tegart the only thing saving him was his badge
and gun.
When Brown's mother arrived on the scene she
became upset and began to yell and scream, the report
said. The mother was able to get Brown inside a
building. The officers decided the threat of violence by
the crowd was too great to make arrests on the scene.


They filed a sworn complaint with the state attorney
requesting felony charges be filed against Brown. The
arrest was made on Oct. 13.
Roberto R. Martinez, 26, 415 N.E. 11th Ave., Apt.1,
Williston, was arrested Oct. 11 on a charge of operating
a motor vehicle with a suspended license. His license

From Festival Page 1A


but no one is fussing," said Mary Rimavikus of Coconuts.
She said every employee at the restaurant was working that day, and working'hard.
Business before the festival had been up and down. Many residents blamed the Ce-
dar Key Police Department for driving off tourists with its aggressive traffic and law
enforcement techniques. High gas prices and a sluggish economy didn't help.
But the police department has a new chief inVirgil Sandlin. Sandlin is making an
effort to run a more customer friendly department. He rode down Dock Street in his
new utility police vehicle talking to people along the way.
Sandlin said a lot of people he talked to thought the big crowd may have been a
response,to the friendlier police department, and that was fine with him. But he said
truthfully, it could have been lower gas prices or some combination of the two, or just
the great weather. Whatever the reason, he was glad to see the crowd. "It started early
today," he said. "I bet there were 15 tour buses parked at the school. I'm impressed
with the crowd; it's great."
On 2nd Street, site of the white-roofed arts and crafts booths, Mayor Heath Davis
fried, grouper as fast as he could. A long line waited patiently for a grouper sandwich
and fries. Davis was being assisted by a group of Cedar Key Middle School students
for the local FFA Chapter. They were rapidly running out of grouper early in the af-
.- ._I 1 0 -l j m i il ... -1 1 -. ;
ternoon Saturday. .
The sixth, seventh and eighth graders were under the supervision of agriculture in-
structor Denny Voyles. Taryn Epperson, 11, Caitlyn Goss, 12, and Megan Stuber,12,
handled the hectic pace in good humor.
Voyles said the Middle School agriculture students are learning how to grow hydro-
ponic vegetables. Last year they grew strawberries in water. This year they will grow
squash, torfiatoes and carrots. They will also learn how to take cuttings from plants
and grow roots using hydroponics.
"We had a forestry contest last week at Lake City Community College and we got sec-
ond place out of 26 teams," Voyles said. "We did well. We kind of wanted first place.
We're the smallest school wherever we go."
The agriculture program is in its second year.


Down the street, Thelma McCain and Bobby Locke were selling crab cakes for the
Lions Club. Business was brisk and a long line had formed on the sidewalk.
McCain chatted as she worked cooking crab cakes. She recently lost her husband
Mack, but she felt it was important to work for the Lions Club charity. Money from
the sale of the crab cakes will be spent on people who can't afford eyeglasses.
"It's been really rough. A lot of their insurance doesn't cover it (glasses). anymore.
That's why we stand out there selling crab cakes," she said.

From Edison, Page 1A

tist Church in Chiefland and was Sunday school teacher for a year and. a half. He is
past president of the Chiefland Kiwanis Club.
"My beliefs are pretty simple. First we must have safe schools. Kids learn best when
they feel safe and secure," he said. "Secondly, we need to offer meaningful learning
experiences to our children."
As the assistant superintendent of instruction, Edison said he is proud of the fact that
the number of discipline incidents reported to the state has decreased 63 percent. He
attributes this to taking what he calls a "proactive approach'to discipline."
"It's taking the time to teach kids proper behaviors and the positive consequences of
making good choices," he said.
While serving as assistant superintendent of administration, he said reading
proficiency has increased 9 percent and math proficiency has increased 11 percent.
He said this translated into 350 more kids reading on their grade level and 420 kids
who can do the math on their grade level than four years ago.
Asked about prayer in schools, Edison said prayer is still allowed and the Bible is
still read in Levy County schools.
He said students can read the Bible or hold prayer at the flagpole.
"When I was still at Chiefland Middle School, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes
had prayer at the flagpole," he said. "The schools can't promote a religion. It can't
be teacher led, but kids can bring their Bibles and read their Bibles. I've seen them
reading their Bibles before lunch.."
Asked about the assertions of his opponent, Robert "Bob" Hastings that he is a
clone of his boss, Superintendent Cliff Norris, and is Norris's handpicked successor,
Edison, a Democrat, said he has his own ideas and he handles his specific duties, but
he said Norris is the captain of the ship and knows things he doesn't. He said there ..
has never been discussion of him being Norris' successor.
Edison said he is proud of the school district and the gains made while he worked
as one of the assistant superintendents. Jeff Davis, a former Chiefland High School,
principal and head football coach, is assistant superintendent for administration.
Edison said he is especially proud of the gains in reading proficiency.
"If you can teach a kid to read well and to think analytically and critically, they can


learn anything and be what they want to be," Edison said.
Edison noted the graduation rate has increased to 69 percent.
"Last year more than 100 kids walked (in graduation ceremonies) at Chiefland High
School. Traditionally it's been in the 70 to 80 range," he said. i
He believes the schools are having more success in part because the schools are
more aggressive. He said there are "credit retrieval" glasses on line that allow
students to retake courses with computers after school.
Edison is critical of the state rules that he says don't make sense. He said schools are ,
given four years to get a student through high school, but if a senior does not pass
a course, the state says he or she must take it during summer school, and they are e
considered a dropout.
He said the GED Exit Option states that if a student passes the FCAT test and GED,
they are still considered a dropout.
Edison believes the state will eventually go to "end of the course" state testing rather
than the current FCAT tests.
He is critical of the "No Child Left Behind" federal program that stacked more
requirements on instructors to bring slower learning students up to grade level,
without providing funding. He said the concept of "No Child Left Behind" was
good. The idea was to give students assistance in subject areas where they needed
help, but without funding it stresses schools financially to administer the program.
"Anytime you are dealing with the federal government the paperwork is .
unbelievable," Edison said.
On the subject of school construction priorities, Edison said the school district can't
afford to build a school at this point in time.
He said a Florida Department of Education assessment team tours school facilities
every five years and looks at how the facilities are maintained and other criteria.
If a. school needs replacement, he said the DOE assessment team makes a
recommendation to replace the school and the state will fund 75 percent of the cost.
Without state funds, Edison said the county can't afford to build a new school.
"We just had an assessment last year and none of the schools met the criteria,"
Edison stated.


From Hastings, Page 1A

School. His Internet resume' said he trained FFA teams and won local, state and na-
tional honors. He was staffing coordinator for special education and head varsity base-
ball coach at Bronson Middle High School and head junior varsity football coach at
the same school.
He is currently a trustee for Central Florida Community College and works at Jim
King Real Estate in real estate sales. He also preaches for the Midway Church of
Christ between Bell and Trenton while the minister is out with health problems. He
said it's a temporary thing. "I just do the best I can."
Hastings said he resigned as principal in 2006 because he disagreed with the way
Norris treated teachers and he didn't like the way Norris was operating the school
district.
"I told him that I didn't like the way he beat down teachers and belittled staff,"
Hastings said. "I didn't appreciate the way he ran the schools at all." As I handed in
my resignation, Cliff said, "Bob, it's been a pleasure nxorking wif you." I said, 'I
don't believe that Cliff." I said, "We will have a change in educational philosophy.
I'll see you in two years."
Hastings said Norris, who has never had opposition, knew what he meant when
he said he would see him in two years. It was Hastings' way of telling Norris he
intended to run for the superintendent's post in the year 2008.
Norris, as it turns out, is not seeking a third term. One of his assistant
superintendents, Jeff Edison, is running for superintendent. Hastings stated that
Edison is Norris' handpicked successor.
Hastings is a Republican, but he said he doesn't think political affiliation should
have anything to do with running the top administrative office in the school district.
"I don't think it plays any part. I think what we're here to do is educate kids," he
stated.
In response to questions, Hastings said churches and the state should be separated
from the standpoint of what the founding fathers of this country envisioned. He did
not want one religion. But he said God should remain in the schools.


"I don't think we should have gotten to the point of taking God out of our public
assemblies and schools," he said. "I think God has a definite place in our schools. I
think we separated it that has led to the demise our communities."
Regarding how the schools should be run, Hastings said the curriculum in the
schools is data driven, but he thinks it should be student driven. He the schools
should use the data to stay within the parameters of state mandates.
He said all learning comes through the interaction of teachers and students.
"We've lost sight of that. The Legislature is directing everything we do with
curriculum in our schools. I used to say in principal's meetings we need to go to
Tallahassee and stand up and speak for the schools. I think I did that as a principal,
but as superintendent, I think I would have far more influence," Hastings said.
Hastings said he doesn't believe the morale of faculty and staff in the school district
has ever been lower. He said Norris never had opposition, and it has been 16 years
since there was a contested superintendent's race in Levy County.
Hastings said the culture of the administration needs to change. ,m"' o
"Our staff and educators need to be treated like professionals," he said.
Hastings also accused Norris' staff of doing a poor job of setting school construction
priorities for the district. He said Williston and Chiefland High School facilities
needs should have been addressed a long time ago.
Hastings said part of WHS was built in 1932, with the main part constructed in
1950. The WHS gymnasium was built in 1956. The CHS gym was constructed
in 1956-57. But he said Norris told the state assessment team that the excellent
maintenance at WHS would mean the buildings would not have to be refurbished or
replaced for five years.
"I'm saying with proper leadership you can help the state understand your needs,"
Hastings said. "If you go to Gilchrist County you will find they've built three new
high school gyms. We haven't built a new gym at Chiefland or Williston High
Schools in 60 years."
He added, "If your local administrative leadership can't influence that, they have no
leadership skills. I think we need to do something in both communities with both
high schools."

Gas and diesel are dropping, hope remains in short supply
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A friend of mine recently drove through Orlando and purchased gasoline for
$2.98 per gallon. That was more than a week ago. When she arrived back
in Levy County, the price was lower than it had been in a while, though it
was averaging about $3.29 for a gallon of regular gasoline last Thursday. I'm not
sure why it was higher than Orlando.
Gasoline prices have been dropping across the nation. The November 4
presidential and congressional elections are approaching. Truthfully I was hoping
the drop in gas prices had nothing to do with the elections, but the coincidence is
almost too difficult to ignore. Stay tuned. I hope I'm wrong. Maybe the oil thieves
have stopped stealing our gas money.
Our national politicians and the talking heads on national television barely give the
subject of high gas prices a passing mention anymore, as though prices are supposed
to be that high. They don't blame high gas prices for our economic problems, even
thmigh it plays a-huge role. Thr-oIly, wail on national television about the crisis
on Wall Street, as if I give a rip. What about the high cost of gas and diesel?
I fear too many of our national politicians and talking heads are heavily invested,
one way or another, in fossil fuels such as oil, gas and natural gas. Oil companies
advertise heavily with the big television networks, and the networks respond with
oil-friendly chatter.
The network analysts and national politicians pretend that the average person can
make adjustments in their personal budget to compensate for high priced gas. That
may be true, but the average person compensates by spending less on consumer
goods, houses and cars. And that hurts the economy. The reality is that high gas
prices scare consumers and rob their bank accounts of cash. Consumer spending is
80 percent of the national economy.
A fifth grader could do the math. If you scare the heck out of American consumers
by raising gasoline prices to $4 per gallon and leave it there for months at a time,
people will respond by keeping their wallets in their back pockets. They stay home
more. They don't travel as much. They spend only what they have to spend.
The two wars we've been involved, in since 2003 haven't helped matters. Only
the federal government can spend money it doesn't have. The rest of us would be
homeless or possibly in jail if we wrote rubber checks to finance our personal war
chest. But the federal folks have the printing presses. They can print additional
purple five dollar and 10 dollar bills when they run out.
I visited a couple of stores last Tuesday at lunch to look for an obscure battery I
couldn't find at Wal-Mart. Tractor Supply Co. was busy and so was Chiefland Farm
Supply's Ace Hardware. These are two excellent stores in my opinion (and so is the
Ace Hardware in Bronson). The excellence of these stores may account for why they
had so many customers that day, but I think dropping gas prices didn't hurt matters.
I personally believe people were ready to start buying again when they saw gas


prices were retreating. A little hope helps.
The economy is more than dollars and cents. It's more than the massive investment
banks that went broke on Wall Street and then stood there with their hands out,
waiting for a trillion dollar government handout. The economy is made of people.
It's made of emotions. The behavior of people is difficult to measure or predict.
The hidden American economy consists of consumers talking about pocketbook
issues over the kitchen table, at beauty shops and barbershops, at ballgames and on
street corners, at work, and on telephones and cell phones. Shifts in the economy
are driven by psychological jolts, uplifting news, fear, political upheaval, weather,
terrorism, international instability or anything that can make people worry or make I
them feel happy. The economy is more about human emotions and psychology than
anything else. The American economy has its own peculiar chemistry.
The two factors that seem to have the biggest impact on American pocketbooks
are high interest rates and high gasoline prices. They affect the average consumeRnm
High interest rates and high gas prices cause worry in the American consumer. The
consumer reacts by spending less because they have less to spend. The national
economy slows because people refuse to spend money. As the economy slows, the
politicians in Washington and talking heads on national television wonder what it's
all about.
It's my. opinion that when the U.S. Congress and the President decide to invest
more of America's tax revenue on building and repairing roads and bridges and
maintaining and building public facilities like schools, more private companies
will go back to work. More jobs will be created. More money will circulate in the
economy. More wealth will be created in the private sector.
We all benefit when wealth is created in this country. The government can't do
it all. But it has a role. We all feel better when money is changing hands, stores are
selling merchandise, banks are lending money, car lots are selling vehicles and we
have jobs to take care of our families. Government benefits from a healthier flow ofi
tax dollars.
What the government is doing now is spending beyond its means. The trillion
dollar bailout of big Wall Street firms and the billions being spent on fighting two
wars, coupled with the $10 trillion national debt, are damaging an economy that waM
already stagnant under the weight of high fuel prices for cars and trucks.
Gasoline diesel prices will have to drop below $2 per gallon before we get back
to normal in this country. For now, people are holding on to what little money is
leftover after they buy gasoline, food and basic household items. The psychology of
the American consumer is riddled with fear at this point and that won't change in a
major way until gas and diesel prices drop significantly below current levels and wei
start spending more of our federal tax money at home.


Letter to the Editor -
I have wanted to express my complete dismay con-
cerning this Presidential Election: I still remember
President Kennedy saying (which has become a famous
quote although nearly forgotten) "And so, my fellow
Americans: ask not what your country can do for
you ask what you can do for your country." We
have traveled such a long way from the days when we
were proud Americans willing to bite the bullet for our
country.
Today it seems we are a nation of people who are
looking to our Government to provide it all for us.
We must have gotten a socialist mentality. "I want my
needs met and I don't care who pays the bill, just do it
and do it now" seems to be the mantra of today. -
Our mortgage crisis, I believe was predicted years
in advance by those who said the lending practices of
Fanny Mae and Freddy Mack were without restraint. I
can't imagine being able to procure a loan to purchase
a home with zero percent down and payments which I
could afford whether,. could afford them or not. Many
unsuspecting people, especially young couples whose
dream is to own a home saw the possibilities because
of those in Congress who pressured Fanny Mae and
Freddy Mac to reduce their requirements. Why was
this done? To get VOTES!


time to pay the piper
Well now we have to pay the piper. I thank God I lis-
tened to the sound principles of not spending more than
I make and to pay off what I owe as quickly as pos-
sible. In the mean time most.are quaking in. their boots
with the thought that they may lose everything because
of the absolute greed of many in Congress and CEO's
of large lending corporations.
Let me suggest a few thoughts to frame my anger and
frustration. We, like many of the developed nations in
the world, are deeply in debt. Our National Debt is in
the trillions. Social Security and Medicare are in jeop-
ardy, for some of the same Congressmen have allowed
dipping into those accounts to pay bills. One political
party suggests the government subsidize medical insur-
ance for everyone who up to now cannot afford insur-
ance. Sounds good doesn't it. Buy now and pay later
seems to be the mantra or just let 'Uncle Sam' pay.
Furthermore let's elect someone to the largest most
complex corporation in the world without one day of
experience as a CEO. Let me ask you, would you take
someone from a list of applicants to run your own fam-
ily business with NO experience? Of course not but in
this Presidential Election there is one candidate who is
the most gifted orator I have ever heard and he has con-
vinced millions he will pull it off and put a chicken in


every pot to boot. It is an "everyone wins proposition":
just elect the man of your dreams. You've got it, it is
a dream. He can produce nothing without the money
to pay for it. He suggests he will tax the rich and give *
rebates to the poor and it will work. Tax the rich, great
idea, right? The rich are the business owners. They
hire people like me. Jack up their taxes and lower minb
and I will be without a job, hey and I won't have to pay.
taxes at all! Good deal NUTS. I
I think we need to lean to where the experience lies. !
Vote for a man who isn't promising you the moon and
prepare to roll up your sleeves and do what President
John F. Kennedy proposed and ask what you can do fot
our country and hope there is time to make it work.
Now I am proud of myself in so much as I haven't
suggested that those who vote for the dream chaser are,
also voting for the murder of innocent children, the dis-
solution of marriage as we know it with one man and
one woman, the permission to allow homosexuals to
marry, to have "In God We Trust" and the Ten Com-
mandments be removed from'public places, to be no
longer permitted to bear arms as provided in the Sec-
ond Amendment, and lastly to be guaranteed the right
to vote with no limitations due to color, creed, sex,
faith or union pressure.

TARMAC AMERICA: INVESTING NT U FN


King Road Mine: Designed to protect the land and water


Southern Levy County is a destination for bird
watchers, boaters and hunters who enjoy spending
time outdoors from the waters of the
Withlacoochee River to the forests of Gulf
Hammock. Taking good care of natural resources so
generations of residents and visitors can enjoy
southern Levy County's outdoor assets is a top
priority for Tarmac.

This richness ofnatural resources defines Levy
County and drives its prosperity. It goes beyond
tourism and recreation the economy and the
environment are intricately connected. Tarmac,
which proposes to bring a new venture to Levy
County, will improve-the economy while protecting
the environment.

In southern Levy, along King Road, lies limestone
resources that can only be found in few places in
Florida. Tarmac is seeking permits to open a mine
that would produce high-quality aggregate needed
to build roads, bridges and hospitals in Levy County
and communities in West Central Florida.

If successful in obtaining the required approvals;
the mine will bring new jobs and other benefits to
the region.


KING ROAD MINE

Adjacent Land:


880 acres left intact

4,600 acres proposed.
as preservation


The plan for King Road Mine doesn't just call for
investing in the economy. Its priorities also include:
preserving sensitive lands, protecting water
resources, preserving wildlife habitat and restoring.
and enhancing the hammock.

Conserving Land and Restoring the Hammock

Tarmac is placing significant acreage in conserva-
tion easements and ensuring vast stretches of land
be left untouched.

On the 4,800-acre mine site, about 880 acres will
be left intact to protect high-quality flowways. On
this tract, about 2,700 acres will be mined, with
plans to mine about 25 acres a year.

To the west of the mine property, 4,600 acres of
adjacent land are proposed for preservation. This
land on the edge of the Waccasassa Bay State


Preserve will enhance.the preserve and enlarge the
wildlife corridor. A management plan will be imple-
mented to remove non-native species and restore
native hammock vegetation.

Protecting Water

Tarmac has conducted comprehensive studies
and gathered extensive amounts of data to under-
stand the watershed and water uses in southern
Levy County and around the mining property.
These studies show that ground and surface water
through the property flows primarily west toward
Withlacoochee Bay and away from springs. The
towns of Inglis and Yankeetown to the south are
unaffected by the ground and surface waters
flowing through the site.

Hydrologic tests have been conducted to deter-
mine whether mining activities, including blasting
and limerock operations, will adversely affect water
quality, with no indication that it will. As required
by local, state and federal regulations, rigorous
water monitoring will take place once mining gets
under way.

For Tarmac, good planning includes protecting
Levy County's natural resources, leaving a legacy for
future generations.

Williston council sticks with plan to


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


With money tight and the future of the economy uncer-
tain, the Williston City Council last week stuck with its
promise to enforce a hiring freeze.
Council members voted unanimously not to fill a vacant
police officer's position in the Williston Police Depart-
ment.
Interim City Manager and Finance Director Mark
Schiefer reminded council members that they had bor-
rowed $297,000 from reserves to balance the 2008-09
budget and agreed to reduce personnel expenses through
attrition.
Attrition refers to the practice of not refilling positions
that become vacant.
"Unfortunately, this is attrition," Schiefer said. "This is
the only way you will balance the budget next year. We
can't keep taking money out of reserves."
Police Chief Dan Davis didn't object to the council's
not filling thle vacancy, but he reminded council mem-
bers he has high turnover. He didn't want the first five
positions lost to attrition to be in his department. That
would wipe out his patrol division.
Schiefer agreed there would have to be a balance in
deciding what positions are not filled, but, he repeated
his main point that the budget will be difficult to balance
next year, "and that may include the utilities fund."
The commission transfers money out of the utilities
fund every year to help balance its main operating bud-
get and the current budget was no exception. Council
members transferred $837,000 from utilities to the gen-
eral fund of the 2008-09-budget.
In other business:

tracted with the city to

Norm Fugate is preparing the first draft of a con-
tract for private haulers to do the work. The contract
would be bid out. Fugate said he will have a draft of
the contract ready for the'board by next month.
* Mayor Gerald Hethcoat honored the Student of the
Month for the four Williston schools.
Jalyria Dallas, a kindergarten student at Joyce
Bullock Elementary School and granddaughter of
Cynthia Johnson, was described by her teacher as
caring. She helps in the classroom each and every
day by tying shoes, taking children to the clinic and
helping other students with their work. She was de-
scribed as being a joy to have in class and a wonder-
ful example of a caring person.
Connor Edwards, a fifth grader at Williston Ele-
mentary School and son of John Edwards and Heath-
er Phillips, was described as a solid, hard working
student who does very well academically. His well-
behaved demeanor makes having him in class a real
pleasure.
Joel Blitch, a 7th grader at Williston Middle
School and son of Roy and Rheta Blitch, is an excel-
lent student. He works hard to see that his work is
completed and well done. He exhibits good charac-
ter and is respectful to the teachers and his peers.
Tyrie Boyer, a senior at Williston High School
and son of Ken and Mary Boyer, is one of Willis-
ton High School's finest students. He currently has
a .3.95 grade point average, which includes an "A"
in Advanced Placement United States History. Ty-
rie also earned a Level 5 on his FCAT reading as
a sophomore and 31 on ACT reading as a junior.

Sexi Lexi wins Mr. All Star in pageant fund-raiser


Story and Photos
by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

It was all in fun, mind
you.
Thirteen Chiefland area
men wore dresses, makeup
and high heels last week in
an effort to raise funds for
two all-star cheerleaders go-
ing to London.
They competed in the
"Chiefland Mr. All Star
Beauty Pageant." The guys i
had fun. The crowd was in
stitches.I
Money raised by the event
will help pay the expenses of
Morgan Smith and Tiffany
Slaughter who are traveling
to London after Christmas
to march in the New Year's
Day Parade.
Three girls tried out and
won all-stars along with
Sara Megargel. Sara won't
be traveling to London with
her fellow all-stars.
Two political candidates,
Abraham Blitch, who is
running for the District 1
county commission seat,
and property appraiser can-
didate Osbom Barker, were
among the Mr. All Star par-
ticipants.
It was clear no one on stage was dying to win
the title, but someone had to take it.
The queen was Shannon Smith as the outra-
geous Alexis "Sexy Lexi" Smith. First run-
ner-up was Charlie "The Fashion Princess"
Lloyd and second runner-up was Andy Kidd
as Mandy Star Kidd.
Lisa Quincey Baxter served as emcee for
the contest at the Chiefland High School audi-
torium. Kelby Andrews, Paige Brookins and
Matt McLelland, assistant principal, served as
judges.

Chiefland golfer plays well in high winds to win Rye

Grass Tournament
Story and photo by Terri Witt
Staff Writer


Jordan Mitchell made the difficult shots look easy for most of the day Sunday as
he cruised to a four shot victory in the championship flight of the 31st Annual Rye
Grass Tournament at Chiefland Golf and Country Club.
Mitchell, who holds the course record of 64, finished the 2008 edition of the Rye
Grass with a two-day score of 142, four shots ahead of his nearest rival, Jamie
Whitehurst of Williston, and eight shots ahead of Jim Munns, club pro and manager
at Suwannee Country Club in Live Oak, who was third.
Mitchell is the 24-year-old son of former Chiefland First Baptist Church Pastor
Darel Mitchell, who watched his son play in the tourney. The elder Mitchell was
a scratch golfer when he was a younger man. He has a home overlooking the
Chiefland Golf and Country Club course.
Jordan Mitchell thanked his father for teaching him the game of golf and thanked
God for the win, quoting from Proverbs 3 verses 3-5. "Trust in the Lord with all
your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge
him, and he will make your paths straight."
High winds on Sunday robbed even the best golfers of consistency. Mitchell, who
at one point thought he might have a chance to tie his old course record when he was
four under par for the day, realized the wind was taking its toll when he bogeyed
holes 14 and 15.
"I shouldn't have thought about it, but I did," he said. "When the wind came up, I
was lucky to wobble in."
He said he worked hard to stay focused on the present and forget about what had
happened at the two bad holes.
Mitchell remained in the lead by making good recovery shots whenever the wind
played havoc with the ball. On the 9th hole Sunday, he made his best shot of the day
when the ball landed in the cart path on the north side of the green. He chipped the
ball over the ridge and added spin to stop it within-two feet of the hole. He birdied
the hole.
Mitchell is the lead singer in the band "Georgia." The band has a record contract.


Williston JVshuts

"If not for one bad quarter of football all season long,
this Williston junior varsity football team would have
been undefeated," said Head Coach Jim Smith follow-
ing his team's final game of the season.
The Red Devils ended their season Oct. 16 at Booster
Stadium, as they shut out the Santa Fe Raiders, 51-0.
The Red Devils scored early and often as they spread
their eight touchdowns among four different players.
Quarterback Deshaun King added three touchdowns
with runs of 4, 25, and 50
yards. King ended the ju-
nior varsity season with an
incredible eleven hundred
rushing yards on just 60
carries in the seven games.
King averaged just over
eighteen yards every time he
carried the football from his
Red Devil Quarterback, quarterback position for the
Deshaun King Red Devils. Brandon Pres-
ton scored two touchdowns
with 'uns of 26 and 67 yards. Antwan Jelks added two
touchdowns with runs of 4 and 6 yards. On defense it
was Cody Louis with a 25-yard pass interception he re-
turned for a touchdown.
The Red Devil defense played an extremely aggres-
sive game including several sacks of the Raiders' quar-
terback throughout the game.
The Red Devils took a 13-0 lead as the first quarter
ended, and extended their lead to 38-0 at the end of the
first half, forcing a running clock the entire second half.
Playing his entire roster in the second half, Smith had a
lot of good things to say about his team following the 6-
1 season, Smith told his team, "You were able to get the
most out of your abilities through hard work and most
important, all of you showed great character the entire
season."
Many parents of the players joined them on the field
following the game to shake Smith's hand giving him
well-deserved congratulations for a great junior varsity
season. Smith also said this group was the hardest work-
ing group he had coached in his fourteen seasons coach-
ing football.
Nine of the Williston junior varsity players will join
the varsity for the remainder of the varsity season. These
players include: King, Preston, Jelks, and Louis along
with Jamarcus Brown, Lane Montez, Max Greenstien,
Darroll Jest, and Detereon Ross.

His brothers Johnathan and Jeremy are also members of the band.
A third brother, Josh, a firefighter from Marion County, played alongside Jordan
and held the tournament lead going into Sunday's final round of championship golf,
but despite his excellent chipping all day, he couldn't hold the lead. Josh, who hadn't
played any golf for four months, finished with 71 the first day and 80 the second, for
a two-day total of 151.
Munns was just a shot off the lead coming into Sunday's round, trailing Josh
Mitchell, but his game unraveled on the back nine. On some holes he was unable to,.
control his approach shots to the green in the gusty winds.
Skipper Henderson, who played'alongside Munns and was four shots off the lead -
going into Sunday's final round of golf, played consistently off the tees and on the

Bronson JV downs Mayo JV again

Story and photo by Steve Jarboe
Staff Writer

The Bronson Eagle junior varsity football team proved
they know how to win. They proved tonight, Oct. 16,
that their early season win over a big and talented Mayo
team was no fluke. The Eagles played with a lot of heart
and stayed right with the Hornets in a 6-6 tie game,
right up until the fourth quarter when a Ben Landon to
Knight Gonczarow pass put the Eagles up 12-6. Jakeith
McCray added the two point conversion for the final
score in the game. The Eagles took a 14-6 win.
Eagles' Head Coach Greg Hamilton summed the game
up by saying, "These 17 guys just defeated a good Mayo
team for the second time this year."
The Eagles scored on their opening drive in the first
quarter as McCray ran in for a 20-yard touchdown.
With 8:00-showing on the clock in the first quarter. The
two-point try was no good and the Eagles took a 6-0
lead. Mayo returned the favor as Treston Whidden ran
in for the Hornets two minutes later to tie the game at
6-6. The Hornets two-point try failed as well.'
The Hornets were physically a much bigger team,
man for man, than the Eagles. But these Eagles played
tough defense, taking the ball away and forcing several


fumbles the rest of the first half. The score remained
tied at the half, 6-6.
Mayo took the opening kickoff to start the third quar-
ter and kept the ball for 6 minutes, driving inside the
Eagles' 25-yard line. The Eagles defense forced an-
other fumble and recovered the ball. The Eagles were
driving inside the Hornets' 30-yard line with just over
one minute showing on the third quarter clock when the
ball popped up in the air after a 15-yard pickup by the
Eagles. The Eagles had the drive stopped as the third
quarter ended with the score still deadlocked at 6-6.
The Hornets started a drive that sputtered inside the
Eagles 20-yard line by an Eagle defense that would
not bend. The Eagles took over and Landon called a
sprint-out pass and lofted the ball 30 yards in the air to
Knight Gonczarow for the go ahead touchdown for the
Eagles. McCray bolted into the end zone for the two
point conversion and the Eagles' lead was now 14-6.
The Hornets would not quit however, as they began
another drive against an exhausted Eagle team. With
three minutes remaining in the game the Hornets
moved inside the Eagles' 10-yard line.

Woman's Club raises $1,200 to fight breast cancer

Story and photo-by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Breast cancer is the most
common cancer diagnosed
among women in Florida..
The American Cancer
Society estimates 11,710
new cases of invasive
breast cancer were diag-
nosed in 2007 and 2,700
women will die of the dis-
ease.
Chiefland Woman's Club
members sponsored a 3 V2
mile walk Saturday on the
Nature Coast Trail to raise
awareness of breast can-
cer and funds to fight the
disease.
The event raised $1,200
for the American Cancer
Society.
Health department of-
ficials brought literature
about breast cancer to the


Walkers tur


event fundraiser.
"We're just trying to make
people aware of the need to go to the doctor and get checked out,"
Woman's Club organizer Melanie Hutchison said.
American Cancer Society spokeswoman Heather Hayes said' the
number of women being diagnosed in the early stages of the dis-
ease has increased significantly. She said most breast cancer today
is found in stage one when it is more easily treated. In years past, it
often wasn't found until stage three.
Mammograms and self exams at home are two of the primary rea-
sons the disease is often caught in the early stages, she said.


The Woman's Club hopes to make the breast cancer walk an annual
event.
In Florida, breast cancer death rates have decreased 14 percent for
black women and 22 percent for white women compared to 1981,
even though the incidence of the disease has been largely unchanged,
according to the American Cancer Society.
Of the breast cancers diagnosed in 2005, 71.6 percent were found in
the early stage.

I


Elect Abraham Blitch for
Levy County Commission District 1
Your vote will make a difference


PEOPLE not POLITICS


Dear Levy County Voter,
Hello, I am Abraham Blitch and I am asking for your
vote. As a family man and a small business owner, I feel
the same pinch this harsh economy is putting on us. I too
am tired of elected officials that won't listen to its Peo-
ple. I am tired of talk and passing the buck. It is time we
put someone in office that deals with real world every-
day family issues. I am asking you to allow me to be our
new voice for Levy County Commission District 1. I
will work to lower our Taxes by eliminating wasteful
spending and set a millage rate that justifies our needs. I
know we families need every dollar we canr keep. I will
work to spur our local economy by spending Tax dollars
at home. I know that small business is the "Heart Beat"
of the County. County employees want to speak up
about waste and wrongdoing but fear losing their jobs.
I wornt let that happen. I am not a politician. I am a com-
mon sense person who believes in People not Politics.
Lets work together for meaningful change.
,Thank You.
Abraham Blitch

I would love to talk to you in person.


Tony voted yes, to approve increased user fees for county services and more taxes (listed below). These are not
included in the charts above. All of which we the residents and voters pay s well.
Tourist Tax: Includes renters with a contract less than 6 months and one day. (Tourist?)
Phone Tax
Impact fees: Told we needed it to make up for the high rate of growth. (14% since 2001)
Raised assessments, including the unfair and higher rate of Fire Assessments that business is
taxed. Causing small businesses to close. Any time you tax a business, it is passed on to the
consumer. Us.
This year's tax dollars generated by our 2008 property tax.bill is $16.6 million. The reduction is not due to my
Opponent. He voted to keep the Millage Rate the same at 7.4212. We the voters had to step in and vote ourselves
more exemptions to lower our taxes. I don't have a problem with paying taxes. I just don't take kindly to being
taken advantage of. It is time for us to step in again. I am asking for your Vote on November 4'h to elect me,
Abraham Blitch as our new voice for Levy County Commission District 1.

Can we afford 4 more years?

Gator Growl


I decided that this-being the weekend for the biggest pep rally in college
football, I would try to understand this phenomenon a little better by going to the
old.standardi Webster's dictionary. Discovered that the word alligator is-derived 'i
T-from the Spanish "el lagaato&Rlichias '~i4fza' lf t d
depending on whether used as a noun or a verb, i's5' deep guttural inarticulate .
sound or the act of producing such sound. So what we have together is a very
large lizard making scary noises.
I have always liked lizards unless they are over six inches long or make noise,
at which point they fall into another category named "stay out of my yard." For
- the most.part, I've had a good relationship with the little guys even having one as
a pet named Herman who lived in my living room curtains and ate potato chips.
And who doesn't remember the great Taco Bell commercial with the savvy
Chihuahua calling, "Heeere, Leezard Leezard Leezard!" trying to coax Godzilla
'to come his way? (High School grads of the 70s-don't answer that. We know
you have a hard time recalling much of anything.) Anyway, there was the suave,
tiny canine summoning this monster lizard, totally confident of his. own hunting ,'
prowess. I'm afraid that had he actually captured the creepy creature, he would ,
have realized that he might have bitten off more than he could chew, sort of like.
this Georgia Dawg did twenty years ago.
Although I'm a newcomer to this area, this is not my first encounter with Gator
Growl. My husband and I met in Tallahassee, and being a true Gator (raised right
here in Levy County) he decided that the perfect date would be Gator GrowLv I,
being the Georgia Dawg; was just slightly apprehensive about coming to the
famous Swamp, but as we all know, we all do incredibly stupid things while
dating.. So we set off from the Capitol in my little blue Datsun, his car having
caught on fire the day before or something like that.
The first thing we did upon arriving in town was to stop at a UF bookstore. '
and buy Gator bumper stickers which my future husband immediately applied
over my UGA stickers; putting in serious jeopardy the future husband part.. He
informed me that we would not have a car left standing if he did not cover the
offending stickers. Okay. Later, when entering the stadium and beholding, a
sea of blue and orange, I realized that he just might have a point there, not that I
admitted it til years later. ,
I was in for an incredible treat that night with Jay Leno as the comedian (we.
laughed 'til we cried) and the most spectacular laser and fireworks show that I had
ever seen. At the very exciting (slaughter) Homecoming game the next day, I took
my wallet from my purse when my husband about knocked me out of the stands
trying to cover it up. Yep, it had UGA stickers on it. About that time someone,
in the stands just mentioned UGA and a low guttural sound became audible.. .the
Growl. It was scary.
Later that night, as we were receiving a traffic ticket for a broken taillight. (I'm
convinced it was the work of a Dawg-sniffin' Gator) I couldn't quite read the
expression on the police officer's face until it dawned on me what he was seeing !
at the back of the car. I had, of course, already tried to remove the Gator stickers
but they were partially stuck on top of the UGA ones, and they were next to
my Leon County tag! Talk about school loyalty issues. Thinking we were true
schizophrenics, he let us off with a warning and happily sent us out of Alachua
County. And trust me. This little Dawg was happy to escape with all of her fur
intact! -Wainda Kaye

October 1st, 2008 in Mobile Ala., winding over 2,000
miles through Mississippi, Tennessee, South Carolina
and Georgia before coming into Florida and wil reach its
final destination of Cedar Key on Oct. 29. The purpose
of the Ride is to raise awareness and encourage people
to share life through one or more of the Five Points of
Life: whole blood, platelets, marrow, cord blood, and
organ & tissue.
The Five Points of Life Ride consists of a small team
of cyclists and support crew. Each member is selected
for their personal connection to one or more of the
five points. The route crosses six southeastern states,
with stops in communities along the way at activities
and events hosted by local donor organizations. Team
members meet with donors, patients, community leaders
and media. School assemblies, donor drives, formal
presentations, hospital visits, proclamations, and media
interviews are key components of the ride.
During this 29-day trek, people along the route will
have the opportunity to donate blood and join the NMDP
Registry of volunteer marrow and blood cell donors.
More than 30 events are scheduled to educate people
about platelet donation through apheresis, the need for
banking umbilical cord blood, and the importance of
organ and tissue donation.
Five Points of Life is focused on raising national
awareness of the need for donations of all five points
of life (whole blood, platelets, marrow, cord blood, and
organ & tissue) and increasing donor participation. With
the support of many of the national donor organizations
and the financial support of corporate sponsors, LifeSouth
organized the first cross-country Five Points of Life ride
