Experts name


Chiefland man


best tree farmer

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Surrounded by forestry experts Tuesday, Chiefland tree
farmer Dennis Andrews stood under a canopy of 30-foot tall
cypress trees he had planted in rows more than two decades ago.
The visitors were interested in how Andrews grew cypress trees
as though they were planted pines.
Andrews, the Florida Forestry Association's Outstanding Tree
Farmer for 2008, was selected for the statewide honor because
of his unique management techniques on the property, which
included growing planted cypress, promoting tree diversity, and
enhancing wildlife habitat.
Planting cypress trees for potential commercial sale is a novel
idea. Andrews hasn't sold any of the planted cypress trees, but
he said the trees would probably sell best if they were ground
into cypress mulch.
"He's got some unique things he does," said Barry Hartley,
state tree farm committee chairman. "He has planted cypress
trees over the years in low spots, That's quite unusual for this
part of the country."
Andrews showed the group of about 30 visitors four of five
locations where cypress trees of varying ages are growing in wet
or damp areas that sometimes hold standing water. He showed
them longleaf pine plantations and old growth pine stands, and
towering oaks draped in Spanish moss.
It's all part of the 3,800-acre site Andrews owns and manages
several miles east of Chiefland off U.S. 27A in a place called
Levyville.
The association liked his hands-on approach to the day- Dennis Andrews points to a feature in a small forest of cypress trees he
to-day activities of managing the property, inchiding control planted 24 years ago on his property in Levyville. Andrews was named the
2008 Florida Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year. His name will be placed
See Forester, Page 6A in omirniation for national tree farmer of the year.


Proposed group would use Chiefland well field


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Representatives from six local governments with an interest in forming
a regional water supply authority were told Monday that two well fields
would provide much of the water, including a 122-acre site north of the
Chiefland city limits and another near Bell.
The Government Utility Authority would include Bell, Trenton, Cross
City, Fanning Springs, Dixie County and Gilchrist County. None of the
governments has made a formal commitment to join the GUA, but all have
expressed varying degrees of interest.
GUA member governments would be tethered together by a regional
water piping system connected to the well fields. The GUA would have
authority to finance and build water pipes and water storage facilities, and
to build, and operate wastewater treatment facilities.
Dixie County Coordinator Arthur Bellot said the Dixie County
commission would participate in the GUA only if it was given equal and
fair representation on the, board of directors that runs the multi-county
facility.



Bronson selects city clerk

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Kelli Brettel always knew she would
end up in Levy County. Brettel, who is
from New Port Richey. begins as the
Bronson town clerk Monday. Nov. 3.
When her brother- and sister-in law
moved to Bronson, Brettel and her*
husband of 17 years, Wayne. knew it was,
just a matter of time before they and their
7-year-old son, J.W., moved to the area
to be with them. But the desire was there
even before that.
"My husband and his brother hunted
up .here since they were young," she
said. "We always talked about building
up here and our son playing baseball for the Gators."
Brettel was selected for the position out of 25 or 30 applicants, said
,Bronson Mayor Frankdin Schuler.
He said she stood out more than the other applicants because she was
more qualified and seemed like a thorough person and well-organized.
Another quality she had that Schuler thought important is the fact that
she isn't from around here, which is better for neutrality and getting
things done equally for different people.
"The clerk basically runs city hall and works with the council and
See Clerk, Page 2A


Chiefland City Commissioner Teresa Barron repeated the city's position
that Chiefland would be willing to sell water to sister governments in the
area, but has no interest in joining the GUA. The city has offered to sell
water from the so-called Drummond site north of Chiefland. It has a lease
on 33 acres there.
"We're interested in selling water to the GUA if they want it, but we're
not interested in being a part of the GUA," she said.
Chiefland has also contacted the Suwannee River Water Management
District by'letter asking to begin negotiations on purchasing the 33-acres
it leases from the'district, as well as the remaining 122 acres the district
owns on the Drummond site.
Discussions about forming a GUA began when Fanning Springs and
Dixie County would not agree to Chiefland's plan to sell those governments
water. Under the new proposal, the future GUA would have authority to
draw water from 122 acres on the Drummond site because SRWMD owns it.
Chiefland already has a well drilled on the other 33 acres.
A slot is available for Chiefland on the GUA board of directors if the
city decides it wants to take part in the regional water supply authority.

Early voting indicates


huge election turnout

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

It was bound to happen in an election of this magnitude.
Lines have been forming all week outside the supervisor of elections
office in Bronson as people waited to vote early for the Nov. 4 election.
The governor's office noticed it too.
Gov. Charlie Crist sent Levy County Supervisor of Elections Connie
Asbell and her 66 counterparts in elections offices around the state an
executive order Tuesday requiring early voting facilities to stay open from
7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Saturday.
On Election Day Tuesday, polls will open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Asbell said waiting times have been averaging about 15 to 20 minutes,
and occasionally 30 minutes, which wasn't bad. She said people weren't
complaining. The weather was sunny and cool on Tuesday.
"We've had lines all week," she said.
She said 2,198 residents had early-voted. The record is 2,500.
Locally, Property Appraiser Francis Akins, a Democrat, is being
challenged by Osborne "Oz" Barker, a Republican.
The race for the soon to be vacant superintendent of schools seat pits
Republican Bob Hastings against Democrat Jeff Edison.
District 1 County Commissioner Tony Parker, a Democrat, is being
challenged by Republican Abraham Blitch.

Local, state leaders discuss bio-fuels


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bio-fuels have rarely been discussed publicly around
Chiefland, and that's probably because the crops aren't grown
here nor is there an ethanol plant in the area.
But bio-fuels became the principal focus of discussion
twice last week on the same day, first at the Chiefland Rotary
Club and later at a rally in Fanning Springs for District
10 state house candidate Don Curtis, attended by Florida
Commissioner of Agriculture Charles Bronson.
The two events were unrelated, but the subject was the
same bio-fuels.
At Rotary, Lee Hatch and Kelly Hicks of East Coast Ethanol,
LLC, a company that plans to build ethanol production plants
in Jackson County, Fla., Wayne County, Ga., Chester County,
S. C. and Northampton County, N.C. talked about its plans
and invited Rotarians to invest in the company.
The Florida plant will be the first of its kind in state. Each
of the ethanol plants will generate 110 million gallons of corn-
based ethanol annually. The corn will be shipped by rail from
other parts of the nation.
When the plants are constructed, ECE will become the
sixth largest ethanol producer in the nation and will be the
leading producer of ethanol and its co-products on the East
Coast, according to a brochure. "
"There is a tremendous market for our ethanol and at
present very little produced," Hatch said.
Hatch said 2.8 gallons of ethanol can be manufactured from
a.bushel of corn. The price of ethanol is $1.96 per gallon. The
return on investment is 22 percent.
At the Don Curtis rally later in the day, Bronson said Curtis,


Pair arrestedfor burglary, resisting arrest


who has an agriculture background, is the right person to send
to the state legislature. He said Curtis can provide insights
on agricultural issues to a diverse group of lawmakers, many
from urban areas.
"We need bio-fuels. Don knows that," Bronson said.
Bronson said fossil fuels, not bio-fuels,. are causing
everyone's energy bill to skyrocket. He said 18 percent of the
corn grown in the United States is used for bio-fuels.
The agriculture commissioner said the state has invested
$25 million in grants to stimulate a bio-fuels production in
Florida.
"It's been a slow process because a lot of counties don't
want the plants," he said. "They think they're bad and they're
really not."
He said the state is looking for crops that can be grown in
Florida to produce ethanol. He said one possibility is sweet
sorghum. Bronson said some grains can be used for ethanol
and there is a possibility certain grasses could be used. Energy
cane, a shorter version of sugar cane, looks promising.
"I'm convinced some of this may happen after I'm out of
office in two years, but it's coming," he said. "I'm convinced
if we don't, we will give up the chance to produce 30 percent
of the fuel supply in Florida."
Agriculture production is worth $67 billion annually in
Florida, Bronson said. Bronson believes ethanol production
could raise the value of the state's agricultural production to
$160-$180 billion.
He believes food crops such as peanuts and watermelons
will continue to be grown in Florida, but he said there may be
ways to grow winter bio-fuel crops when the land is normally
not in use. He said farmers will grow bio-fuels when they
know there are ethanol plants to buy the crop.

city mayor," he said. "We wanted someone who would be
impartial to all parties."
Brettel said she does not have an accounting degree
but has completed upper level accounting courses, has 20
years of experience including on the corporate level, and
is also a notary. .
Brettel comes at a critical time for the city: the dramatic
resignation of former town clerk Donna Conquest in
September after allegations she wasn't doing her job, the
investigation of former Bronson Mayor Jamie Griffin by
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and FBI for
stealing some $200,000 of the town's money in 2004, and
the fact that the city has yet to complete audits for 2005
and 2006.
Brettel said she is'aware of the city's recent history, but
hasano, apprehensions about the job.. ...
"That has got to be water under the bridge," she said.
"We need to move forward. It's what the town needs: to
build trust back up. And I look forward to the challenge."
She said her first step as the new town clerk will be to sit
down with the town council to get a better.perspective of
what they want, to ask them their expectations of her, and
to set the game plan for the next couple of months together.
The town council meets Monday, Nov. 3, which is also her
first day.
The 2005 and 2006 audits are probably the highest.
priority right now, Brettel and Schuler agreed. Without
them completed, the city cannot apply for grants, Schuler
said.
Other important steps include getting the city's computer
system caught up and having the office streamlined, Brettel
said.
"I'm very excited to have this position and opportunity,"
she said. "After I get my work caught up and stabilized, I
look forward to meeting everyone in the town."

District 10 candidate looks to create more jobs


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Taylor County forester Don Curtis thinks that the most
significant issue facing the citizens of Florida's House
District 10 is job creation. And, he says, significant work
will be required by the district's next representative to
ensure meaningful jobs are soon available to all.
Curtis, who faces, off against Greenville resident
Leonard-Bembry in the Nov. 4 general election, says he is
the man for the job.
The Florida House seat, currently held by Will Kendrick
who has termed out, consists of 10 counties throughout
north central Florida. The district includes Hamilton,
Madison, Taylor and Dixie Counties, along with portions of
Levy, Columbia, Wakulla, Alachua, Jefferson and Franklin
Counties.
Curtis, a Republican, beat Mike Williams in the primary
election held in the fall, while Bembry held off fellow
Democrat Julie Conley.
The person who moves on to take Kendrick's seat,
Cturtis said, better be able to focus on producing more and
better jobs.
"We have got unemployment in House District 10 that
surpasses the statewide average, and when you look across
the 10 counties, we have some of the poorest in the state,"
he said. "We need jobs here more of them, and better
paying jobs."
Curtis said Levy County actually has a bright future in
regards to job creation, with a nuclear power plant on the way,
and possibly a hospital and community college as well.
"Most of the other counties in the district are not blessed
in that way," he added.
To generate better jobs for everyone in the district, he
said, taxes must be kept low on existing businesses, which
will keep Florida in a favorable position to attract new
businesses. Limiting the permitting process will also be
important, he added.
"We have to streamline our regulation so that firms
locate to Florida instead of going to south Georgia, which


is commonly the case," he said. "You can shorten the time
required to get permits. When I sat on the governing board
of the Suwannee River Water Management District Board,
we voted to do that. You can also consolidate all the efforts
from various agencies to review the permitting process.
We have 'umpteen' different agencies who like to weigh in
on permitting. We-have got to streamline that."
Permitting is important, he said, to ensure
environmentally-sensitive issues remain a central focus.
But regulation has to be kept within reason, he added.
"We know where the environmentally sensitive areas
are," he said. "There is plenty of regulation in place for
that. But not every acre of Levy County and House District
10 is environmentally sensitive. It is important, but we
have plenty of other places where we can locate industry."
Curtis said a closely-related matter is ensuring that
a well-trained and educated workforce is available to
businesses thinking of locating in District 10.
"One of the complaints from potential employers is
the lack of skilled workers," according to Curtis. "We are
talking fairly basic stuff sometimes reading, writing ,
math skills, and sometimes a lack of trade skills."
"I would like to see vocational education programs in
North Florida expanded. Not everyone is college bound.
If they can be trained for a good trade, there are job
opportunities out there. We have to couple a business-
friendly environment and having a workforce ready to take
the jobs."
Few businesses existing or potential are going to
want to operate in Florida if they are faced with heavy
taxes, stated Curtis.
"My opponent has proposed repealing all the sales tax
exemptions," he said. "We don't think that .is good for
Florida businesses. It is simply -not good for the economy
right now. We have people hurting. We are in a recession.
If you just go add more taxes on Florida businesses, it is
going to make it worse. I propose keeping the tax burden
low as a way to encourage businesses to grow and expand,
and to invite new ones in."
Other taxes, such as the state road tax, will need the full


Don Curtis


attention of the district's new representative as well.
"We need to reduce the state road tax, so that we can
make our fuels cheaper for consumers particularly for
bio-diesel and cellulosic ethanol," he said. "I propose
suspending those taxes for five years, so it will make it
cheaper at the pump, and so that people will use those
products. If we take the 16-cent-a-gallon tax off, people
will demand it. And that will encourage it, and that means
we import less foreign oil and that is good for our country
as well."
Curtis lives with wife Michele in Lake Bird,, north of
Perry. They have two sons Ray and Clayton.


Election, from Page 1A


District 5 Commissioner Danny Stevens, a Democrat, is
being challenged by Republican Jerry Robinson.
The big draw in Florida is the race for president.
Republicans have fielded U.S. Sen. John McCain and
Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the first female vice presidential
candidate.
Democrats have fielded U.S. Sen. Barack Obama and
U.S. Senator Joe Biden.
If you don't like those folks, there are plenty more to
choose from on the ballot, though most bf them are seldom
mentioned in the media. Eleven other presidential/vice
presidential teams are on the ballot. The best known of the
alternative candidates may be consumer advocate Ralph


Nader and his running mate Matt Gonzales, or Libertarian
Bob Barr and his running mate Wayne A. Root.
Voters will also choose a member of Congress.
Republican Virginia "Ginny" Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville,
is being challenged by Democrat John Russell.
In the race for state representative, Democrat Leonard
L. Bembry is facing Republican Don Curtis for the vacant
District 10 House seat.
Six constitutional amendments are on the ballot.
Amendment 1 would delete language from the state
constitution authorizing the Legislature to regulate or
prohibit the ownership, inheritance and possession of real
property by people ineligible for citizenship.

City attorney says well field site bought for Chiefland


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland City Attorney Norm Fugate said Monday all the documents he has seen
indicate a 155-acre well field protection site north of the Chiefland city limits was
purchased for Chiefland several years ago.
Fugate said he has yet to obtain a purchase agreement between SRWMD and the
Florida Forever program showing what requirements the state may have imposed on the
water district for using state conservation funds to buy the land.
He said SRWMD used Florida Forever funds to make the purchase. He said the
agreement with the state may shed additional light on why the property was purchased.
For now, the property appears to have been bought for Chiefland. The well field property
is often referred to as the Drummond property, in reference to the. former owner.
"Everything I see is they purchased that property for wellhead protection for Chiefland,"
Fugate said in Monday's city commission meeting.
SRWMD has taken the position that Chiefland contributed $160,000 or about $1,000
per acre toward a lease on 33 acres of the property. The lease agreement gives the city
the option to buy the 33 acres, according to SRWMD. But the agency says it owns and
controls the remaining 122 acres.
The question :of whether the property was purchased for Chiefland's future water
supply needs affects a related project. Steve Minnis, Director of Governmental Affairs for
the Southwest Florida Water Management District, indicated Monday that 122 acres of
the property would be used by a proposed Governmental Utility Authority as a wellhead
site.
The GUA would be composed of Bell, Trenton, Gilchrist County, Dixie County, Cross
City and Fanning Springs. It would mean those governments could pump water from a
parcel of land near Chiefland's northern boundary as well as a Bell area well field.
The proposed GUA has offered Chiefland a slot on the organization's board of directors.
If Chiefland were to accept, the city would be tapped into the same water supplies as the
other six governments.
Chiefland city commissioners thus far have shown no interest in joining the GUA,
although there was disagreement Monday on how to proceed.


Commissioner Rollin Hudson said he favored the city selling its interest in the well
field property and getting its money back.
Commissioner Frank Buie said the city might run into trouble bucking a big state
agency, like SRWMD and he wondered if it was wise for the city to resist the water
district.
Commissioner Sammy Yearty said the city contributed $155,000 toward the purchase
of the property and he still believes it was bought for Chiefland.
"It's Chiefland's well field site as far as I'm concerned," he said.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy said Chiefland is not in a great situation as far as water is concerned.
He said the city has two wells in the downtown area and a third well near Delma Locke,
Community Center, but he said SRWMD knew the city needed future wellhead protection
when the 155 acres north of Chiefland was purchased for the city.
"Even in 1999 they were looking at giving Chiefland a more secure well field site," he
said.
Commissioner Teresa Barron attended Monday's GUA organizational meeting in'
Fanning Springs and said she was told that transferring water across county lines is legal
under the state's Local Sources First law when a GUA is the agency piping the water.
Local Sources First requires local governments to exhaust every means of obtaining
water at home before attempting to transfer water from other areas. The fear in the past;
was that central Florida cities like St. Petersburg and Tampa would attempt to transfer
water from the Suwannee River, or establish well fields in Citrus or Levy Counties.
The city has sent two letters to SRWMD offering to buy the 155 acres. The Oct. 14.
letter from Mayor Teal Pomeroy reminded Executive Director David Still that the city
spent $160,000 toward the purchase of the 155 acres. He said the city's ultimate goal is to
secure water for the citizens of Chiefland for the next 50 to 100 years. ,
The letter said Chiefland would like to exercise its option to purchase the 33 acres and
requests a 10-year option to purchase the remaining 122 acres at a lease price of $4,000;
per acre. Pomeroy requested a meeting with the SRWMD board of directors, but the
district said Chiefland could not make a presentation at the.November meeting.
An Oct. 28 letter was approved at Monday's city commission meeting asking the district,
to contact City Manager Grady Hartzog about working out "the details of a closing" on
the property.


City begins process of approving nudity ordinances


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

After months of emotional discussions, Chiefland
city commissioners Monday tentatively approved two
ordinances that would license and regulate sexually
oriented businesses within the city without violating rights
of the owners.
The ordinances fall short of a total ban on strip bars
and businesses catering to adult entertainment, but
commissioners had been warned by local church members
and their attorney that banning those businesses would be
unconstitutional. ,
"Short of an outright ban, t'is is' as close as you can
get," said Mayor Teal Pomeroy.
The city has an anti-nudity ordinance on the books but
the law was a total ban on sexually oriented businesses.
Recent high court decisions have prohibited cities or
counties from imposing total bans. The city could be sued
if it attempted to enforce its current ordinance.
City officials are concerned that the lack of an enforceable
city ordinance could open the door for adult entertainment
to move into the city. The city's old anti-nudity ordinance
is being amended to make it legal. It will continue to ban
alcohol consumption in businesses providing adult nudity
as entertainment.
The licensing ordinance requires the applicant to
disclose whether they have been convicted of any crimes
or pleaded. guilty or no contest to crimes. The crimes must
be listed as well as the location where the crimes occurred.
City officials will have authority to inspect sexually
oriented businesses from time to time to determine if the
businesses are complying with the city's requirements. If a
violation occurs, the complaint would be heard by a hearing
officer.
The licensing ordinance also says the city wants to control
the "secondary effects of sexually oriented businesses"
such as personal and property crimes, public safety risks,
prostitution, potential spread of disease, lewdness, public
indecency, illicit sexual activity, illegal drug use, drug
trafficking, criminal behavior associated with alcohol
consumption and negative impacts on surrounding properties
such as litter, sexual assault and exploitation.
Commissioners have yet to see a third ordinance
prohibiting adult entertainment businesses from locating
within 1,000-feet of churches, schools and daycare centers .
The city's planning commission must review the ordinance
before it goes to the city commission. That's because the


Water, from Page 1A

The city would have equal voting rights with the other
member governments.
Those in attendance tentatively agreed to appoint a
seven-member board to run the GUA. The GUA would
have the power to levy special assessments, as it stands
now. Whether that power will continue to be part of the
GUA will be decided as discussions continue.
Steve Minnis, director of governmental affairs for
SRWMD, said one of the advantages of forming a regional
water supply authority to provide water to member cities
and counties would be in applying for legislative and'
congressional grants. He said the odds of obtaining grants
increases as the number of persons benefiting rises.
Another advantage to the water supply authority would
be in having SRWMD district support, Minnis said. He
said the district would consider granting a 50-year permit
to the authority.
Minnis also stated that the system would be more
reliable with more than one well field in operation. He said
a regional system would also be appealing to businesses
desiring to locate in member cities and counties.


ordinance would change land use zoning.
, In other business:
Commissioners approved a citywide ID theft
protection and prevention policy. The city attorney assisted
staff in developing a policy that would meet the Fair and
Accurate Transaction Act. The goal of the policy is to
safeguard its customer data when handling personal customer
information.
The board gave Police Chief Robert Douglas,
approval to spend $5,340 from law enforcement trust
fund money to update its police records and report writing
system.
Commissioners amended their new solid waste
disposal fee schedule to eliminate errors. The city discovered


that Wal-Mart was not being charged an additional fee for
the vertical compacting dumpsters in operation at the store.
The city says Waste Pro, the city's garbage contractor, failed
to provide a price for vertical compacting dumpsters. Also,
the city had not been charging Wal-Mart an 8.2 percent
franchise fee, which amounts to $12,896 annually. The fee
has not been charged for the past 10 years.
Commissioner Rollin Hudson said residents have
been asking him why garbage rates increased. City Manager
Grady Hartzog said the city had been operating under a five-'
year-old contract. With fuel prices rising, the city felt the;
contract for garbage pickup should be re-bid out of fairness
to the contractor. ,The city advertised for bids from garbage
contractors and accepted the low bid price. -

Farmer for 2008 from a state official Tuesday. A

burning, longleaf pine planting, thinning timber, extensive
road and trail maintenance and enhancement of hardwood
hammock areas for wildlife habitat, gopher tortoises and
game species.
Andrews has been a tree farmer for 47 years. When his
father, M.D. (SIX) Andrews was killed in a car accident
in 1958, Dennis Andrews, his eldest son, interrupted his
education at the University of Florida to take over the
family business.
His parents had moved to Levy County in 1938. His
father took a job with Southern Resin and Chemical Co.
Six years later he decided to go into business for himself
making' railroad ties. The railroad ties were made with
broad axes at the time. Andrews State Pine Tree nursery
near the east Chiefland city limits is named for M.D. (SIX)
Andrews.
Dennis Andrews said he sold 100,000 cords of wood off
the property to support the family in the 25 years following
his father's passing. Over those years, he developed his
own management techniques which include growing
cypress trees in low areas. He' has planted 80,000 bald and
pine cypress. ..... '
More than a dozen gopher tortoise burrows were seen
along the tour route Tuesday. Deer, turkey, quail, wild hog
and other wildlife live on the property. Andrews said he
doesn't use herbicides on his property except along fence
lines.
"My whole idea of managing timberland was to have all


kinds of wildlife, so I only use it (herbicides) on the fence
line," he said.
One area on the Andrews property is the original site
of Levy County's earliest government. Andrews showed
visitors a large stand of the moss-draped live oak trees. He
said the county's first official records were housed at the
site, which was an early residential settlement. Nothing is
left of the buildings that once stood at the historic site.
He also showed visitors a live oak tree that is 27 feet in
circumference. Visitors were impressed by the sheer size
of the tree and couldn't resist having theiriphotos taken in
front of it. Andrews said the tree could be 200 years old. '
Andrews said he prefers to grow longleaf pine on the
property. He said the pines provide good habitat for wild
turkeys. He said he shot a male gobbler one year and found
a quarter of longleaf pine seeds in his craw.
He tells many stories about wildlife on the property
When he was riding in a truck one day. a family of quail
emerged, with the mother quail walking in front of her
brood of chicks. Soon a straggler appeared. The tard
chick; as it turned out, was being herded alon.by the
male bird.' .
When the chick saw an appealing berry on a bush;
Andrews said the chick jumped several times in an attempt
-to snatch the sweet fruit, landing on' his back each time
Finally the larger male bird jumped up to the low-lying
branch and knocked the fruit loose. The chick carried ij
away. '

Bronson students learning to use biotechnology


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Making cheese is an ancient craft dating back to the
,Greeks and Romans, but the science behind it is being
5hsed as a tool to teach Bronson High School students
about biotechnology.
* The use of micro-organisms such as bacteria or yeast,
or substances like enzymes, to manufacture things like
raised bread and cheese is biotechnology.
While the word may be difficult to pronounce,
biotechnology is expected to be a big part of our world in
the future, not only to make our foods, but to make them
better.
' At BHS, agriculture instructor Marcia Smith is
teaching the first ever biotechnology class at the school.
The class decided to turn goat's milk into cheese as its
'first project. It was biotechnology at its simplest and it
gave the class insight into how biotechnology works.
"That's where more of the emerging jobs are, in
biotechnology, and particularly in medical and agriculture
uses," Smith said.
The class will study the history of biotechnology and
how today bacteria can be used to clean up oil spills and
break down garbage in a landfill.
Bio-fuels are expected to be an important technology
in the future. Students will also learn how bio-fuels are
manufactured.
"It's kind of a beginning," Smith said.
The Florida Department of Education is requiring
schools to offer more than standard agricultural education
in the 21st Century. The new term is Career and Technical
Education (CTE), and biotechnology is part of it at BHS.
The school will continue to offer standard agricultural
courses.
Smith noted that it's difficult to work in agriculture

Morris and Tiffany Johnson.
today unless you were born into a family that farms the
land or operates a ranch, or you marry into a farm family.
Traditional agriculture jobs are scarce, but biotech jobs
related to agriculture are becoming more common.
Biotechnology is one area that may give students
more opportunities in agriculture. The biotechnology
class is one of the seeds being sewn by Smith and CTE
Coordinator Carol Jones to prepare students for the jobs
of the future.
Thirty years ago the expectation was that many
students leaving the high schools would work the land,
Jones said.
"Some still do that, but the majority will not," Jones said.
Jones noted that school districts in Florida no longer
use the term vocational education. The new terms are
.career and technical education.
"In the next five years our career programs need to end
4i industrial certification," she said.
Students coming out of the construction program, as
one example, receive a certificate from the school district
attesting to the fact that they have learned career skills for
the construction trade.
.Smith said the biotechnology class will soon learn
about how genetics has become a biotechnology tool.

. W I I I s


They will visit an Equigene office and learn how animal
embryo transplants are accomplished.
At some point during the year the students will
swab the inside of their cheeks to get cells that will be
examined under a microscope. They will peel an onion to
examine the cellular workings of the plant.
"Every time I think of what these kids are facing and
what they will do for jobs, it's amazing,"Smith said.
"This is a lot of fun and we have a small class allowing us
to do more."
Smith's agricultural program at BHS maintains
a small beef herd and learns traditional agricultural
techniques. Some of her students will exhibit animals at
the Suwannee River Fair. But the future for many of the
young people in high school today will probably involve
jobs that require a career skill, including biotechnology.
The young people today know technology and
computers will be part of their future, and agriculture is
no exception. Technology and computers are changing the
face of farming.
"It just fascinates the kids that there are local farmers
who have tractors that once you get that tractor aligned
on the field, it just goes by itself," Smith said.

For decades, Cedar Key's Island Hotel and Restaurant

has enjoyed a reputation for quality lodging, fine dining and great atmosphere.

But it is another feature that has some customers choosing to return time and again.

Many guests, as well as a number of locals, insist it is


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

n May 11, 1919, Simon Feinberg,
owner and operator of a hotel and
restaurant on Second Street in Cedar
Key, died in his establishment under
somewhat mysterious circumstances. The story
goes that Feinberg's death came after a dinner
meeting with his hotel manager, whom he suspected
of running an illegal whiskey still.
The cause of death? Food poisoning. The hotel
manager, W.L. Markham, is said to have prepared
the food.
Now, nearly 90 years later, guests report
that they have seen Feinberg's ghost inside the
establishment the Island Hotel and Restaurant
- roaming the halls and moving from room to room.
If true, Feinberg's ghost apparently has plenty
of company. Guests and staff of the hotel have
reported sightings of at least half a dozen other
spiritual apparitions, including another former
owner, a Confederate soldier, and a murdered
prostitute.
One recent patron appeared at the front desk
with an alarming account of a man in her room.
She demanded to know how he got a key, and
what he was doing in the room. When hotel staff
accompanied the woman back to the room, the man
was gone.
Her descriptions of the man resembled Feinberg.
"A fair number of people come here hoping to
see something," said Andy Bair,.who along with
wife Stanley owns the hotel. "And it seems that just
about everybody has seen something or another."
Bair said that a couple staying overnight in
the hotel'recently witnessed the top of their Igloo
cooler open and close by itself.
Nearly all of the hotel's current staff have
experienced some sort of unsettling event over the
years. Bedspreads being mysteriously turned back
after the beds had been already made. Ceiling fans
and lights being turned on. Doors locked that were
previously op'i '
Waitress Molly Brown, a fixture at the Island
Hotel and Restaurant since 1980, actually made eye
contact with a spirit a few years back.
Brown was near the front desk of the hotel when
she noticed a small woman standing in the middle
of the lobby. When she asked the desk clerk about
who was going to help the woman, the clerk replied
"What woman?" When Brown looked back, the
customer was gone.
Brown vividly remembers the woman's clothing.
"She was not dressed like us," she said. "She
was dressed in 'Little House on the Prairie' type
clothing. We made direct eye contact."
Some think that spirit belongs to a woman who
had reportedly stayed at the hotel near the turn of
the- 19th/20th centuries. The woman is said to have
came to Cedar Key to attend a funeral, and was on
the way to the funeral when the horse and buggy
;she was riding in overturned, killing her.
During prohibition times, the hotel served
las a "speak easy," and brothel. At some point, a
;prostitute was allegedly murdered there. Guests
[have reported seeing-her ghost as well, a "friendly"
'spirit wlio sits. on the edge of the bed.
Current hotel manager Rhonda Lombardo has
Snot actually seen the ghost of the prostitute, but
reports an eerie set of related circumstances.
"There is a faint smell of lilac perfume that can
'be detected at certain times in the hotel, and then
Ithe next moment it will be gone," she said. "We
also find old antique hair pins lying around quite
often."
Many of the hotel's 10 rooms are booked quite
often, particularly Room 29, which one paranormal
investigator concluded was a portal "to another
dimension," according to the hotel's Website.
Room 29 was the upstairs sleeping room of
Bessie Gibbs, a former owner of the Island Hotel
and Restaurant, who was killed in a Cedar Key
house fire in 1975. Those who knew Bessie Gibbs
in real life say she was energetic and full of life.
;Her ghost is said to move through walls from room
Ito room, rearranging furniture and pictures, and
flocking doors. Her favorite trick? Locking the doors
fof unsuspecting guests who have stepped out of
their rooms.
SThe hotel's Website states that a handful of
psychic investigators have conducted studies inside
ithe hotel. Their conclusion is that as many as 13
Ghosts roam the rooms and hallways of the Island
Hotel and Restaurant, and that the ghost of Bessie
;Gibbs is the most dominant.
SThose revelations do not surprise Brown
whatsoever.
"There is definitely spirited energy and'activity
,here," she said. "None of it seems to be harmful or
malicious. But there is no doubt in my mind that
this place is haunted."

I had asked the question weeks
ago, and got a unanimous answer from
coworkers at the Levy County Journal.
Is there a place in the county that is
supposedly haunted that I can visit and
write about for a Halloween story?
They said, practically in unison, "The
Island Hotel," in Cedar Key.
So I booked a room, and called an
old high school buddy who shares my
enthusiasm for the paranormal. Jon
Mickler of Tallahassee came down to
SLevy County, and we headed for the
coast shortly after noon.
Hotel owner Andy Bair checked us
in, and delivered a rollaway bed for my
friend (because we're not like that.)
Afterward, we made our way over to the
one of the local bars, to watch a little
college football. The Gators were on the
tube, dismantling Kentucky. Their team
looked scary good, very worthy of their
No. 4 national ranking.
Later we made our way back to
the hotel, and began to set up our
rudimentary ghost catcher equipment.
That consisted of two digital video
cameras, two still cameras, and a tape
recorder. Nothing state of the art, but
enough to get us started.
Trouble was, Jon's cameras had been
drained of their battery supplies by the
time we returned to the hotel. Strange,
we deducted. As it turned out, that was
one of several unexplainable things
that happened over the next dozen or so
hours.
f,,. For example, hotel, staff had informed
me that guests had oftentimes reported
mysterious knocks on the door in the
middle of the night. Whenever the guests
went to investigate, there would be no
one there.
Knowing this, and despite fully
intending to stay awake until daybreak, I
fell asleep around midnight. I guess that
is what happens when you reach middle
age. So I am dead asleep, but then wake
up in the middle of the night. The very
first thing I hear is a knock at the door.
Instantaneously, my heart rate goes from
comatose human to greyhound.
"Jon," I said in a hushed voice.
Silence. "Jon," I repeated, slightly
louder.
"Yeah," he said in a groggy voice
from across the room.
"Knocking at the door. You hear it?"
"No."
Then, a moment or two later, the
knock came again.
I quickly make my way. to the
door and open it. Not a soul out there.
Freaky? You bet. But not as freaky as
what happened later. /
I had picked up a few. things from the
Chiefland Wal-Mart before we left town,
and had put a couple of the plastic bags
on the floor next to a wall. At some poinf
in the night, noises began to cone from
that general area, as if someone was
rifling through the bags.
I turn on the light, and there is no one
there.
At this point I am not sure what
to believe. I would like to think that
ghosts do, in fact, exist. But I am a
little skeptical. Show me proof. It is
like Debbie Dunnigan, of Springhill,
Fla., who checked into the hotel with
husband, Tim, told me:
"I do not believe," she said. "But I do
not disbelieve either."
I found Debbie sitting in an open area
on the second floor of the hotel earlier in
the evening, quietly reading a magazine.
Later when I went to ask a few follow-
up questions, she was gone. Was she
ever there in the first place? I am no
longer sure.
My conclusion on the Island Hotel
and Restaurant? It is haunted. There
are just too many stories, too many
unexplained oddities, too many things
going on.
It's scary.

Letter to the Editor

Article was wrong

Throughout my career it has not been
often that I have been led to respond to
something I have read in a newspaper.
However, after reading Terry Witt's
interview with Bob Hastings last week,
I can not sit back and allow our, school
system and the citizens of Levy County
to be deceived by untruths and inaccurate
information.
Bob Hastings' campaign is not
about concern for our school system,
our students, or public service. If you
read his comments, the real motivation
behind Bob's campaign is anger,
vengeance, and obsession. Are these
the characteristics that you want to see
in the next Superintendent of Schools?
Bob strategically left out the real reason
he submitted his resignation. The real
reason is that I held him accountable for
one of his outbursts of temper and lack
of professionalism at a basketball game
in Williston with another administrator
in a public place. I have the letter of
complaint Bob!
- Wake up Bob! I am retiring! I know
that you have planned to run against
me for the past two years but I am not-
running! The last time I checked we live
in a democracy where the voters of this
county choose .the next superintendent.
I did not know that I could pick a
successor. If I could, it sure would not
be someone that is filled with anger and
an obsession for vengeance. How many
times over the past 16 years have I had
to address a parent that has been ordered
out of your office because you did not
want to talk with them anymore?
As for school facilities, Bob Hastings
does not have a clue about the processes
we go through to plan and obtain new
buildings for our students. I am not sure
where he got his information on the
replacement for Williston High School, it
is absolutely untrue. The real story is that
when the Department of Education team
came to visit Levy County last year the
replacement of WHS was a top priority of
the Board as recommended by me. The
survey team spent a considerable amount
of time reviewing the school facilities and
told us that indeed WHS should be the
next school to be replaced in the county.
However, they felt that our maintenance
department had done such a good job
with the building that it should be usable
for at least the next five years. They did
not want to declare any of the buildings

Letter to the Editor

So you call yourself an editor

My sister subscribes to your newspaper but reads only the legal notices. I, on
the other hand, have been reading all of it for the past year-and-a-half.
About a year ago, you stated your aim to introduce readers to a variety
of opinions but did not follow through, quickly settling on two columnists:,
Michelle Malkin and Thomas Sowell. I could not comprehend how a responsible editor
could continue to print Malkin's columns, and then you started writing your own op-ed
pieces. My confusion was immediately cleared up: You do not qualify as a "responsible"
editor.
Take, for example, your research on the Community Reinvestment Act: watching
someone's video on YouTube. What your "research" failed to turn up is the fact that
the CRA has nothing to do with sub-prime mortgages; that it was enacted to end
banks' policy of "redlining"; and that the default rate for loans under the CRA has been
smaller than the national average for non-CRA loans. Furthermore, sub-prime loans
were not available in the Clinton administration but were started after 9/11, in the Bush
administration.
Assuming that your newspaper background includes more than handling the obits
section, you should well know that watching one YouTube video does not comprise
"research." It would appear that you are learning your tradecraft from Malkin, whose
practices are more than shoddy; they are, in fact, designed to mislead readers by various
methods, including changing figures to suit her argument, failing to divulge actions and
practices by groups that she likes while vilifying "the Left" for those same actions and
practices, and outright lying.
Assuming that, as an editor, you even care about the misuse of terms in your
newspaper, you should have replaced, at the least, Malkin's ACORN columns
with someone else's: she continually refers to "voter fraud" while apparently not
understanding what that term actually means. And since she clearly does not understand
the term, I suppose that she should not be required to mention that Republicans are
guilty of voter registration fraud, ballot fraud, and ballot access fraud.
You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but you insult the intelligence of your
readership by your repeated printing of Malkin's columns and your own devolvement
into her shoddy practices in research and disclosure of the facts. For example, you
recently declared what a topsy-turvy world this is when a Time Magazine article states
that falling oil prices would be problematic for Brazil and other countries but does not
mention the US. What you failed to mention in your op-ed was that this particular article
was from a Time correspondent in Paris and was about oil outside the US, not within it.
You wrote in one of your op-eds that you were not going to watch the Democratics,
because you had already made up your mind. I sincerely hope that your decision is
not to vote, as your grasp of the issues is abysmal. I have met several of my sister's
neighbors who refuse to vote, and their knowledge of what's going on in this country
- and in the world in terms of this country puts you to shame.
One final thought: Sowell's likening of Obama crowds to Hitler's Nazi crowds was
beyond rude, especially in light of the fact that people attending McCain and Palin
events seem to, feel it perfectly fine to yell out "Kill him" when they hear the name
"Obama" or tell a black cameraman to "Sit down, boy" when he's covering the event
for the media.
To assume that everyone in Levy County shares your views is incorrect. To assume
that you can shame or browbeat Levy County residents into remaining silent in the face
of your shoddy attempts at journalism-is also incorrect. I would suggest that you rethink
your notion of "ibryal"f or are sitting so far. to. the right of center that when you look
to the horizon, you assume that it's the fat left, when in fact it is only the center that you
are seeing.
Sincerely,

Vote & Re-Elect


And a Response

Put down the paper & walk away

Where to start ... Wait, I know.
Your comments indicate that, despite having issues with our content,
you have picked up more than one issue of the Levy County Journal.
Stop it. You are going to spin yourself into the ground, and life is too
short. I have stopped reading/watching The New York Times, CNN, The Gainesville Sun,
NBC, MSNBC, Time, People, The Atlanta Constitution, Newsweek, the Florida Times
Union, and the list goes on. I feel much better as a result.
Here's the deal. We do not attempt to browbeat anybody, but rather to offer an
opinion we feel the public should consider, one they cannot get from any of the
mainstream media. It is all about freedom of speech, and anybody who doesn't agree
with what we say or how we say it can put the paper down and not pick up another
issue. Pretty much like how, five seconds after completing this, I will delete your email
and forget you ever existed. It is not personal, just that I can do without reading it.again.
Whether you choose to believe it or not, the current financial mess we find ourselves
in has quite a bit to do with the CRA. And regardless of what the loans were called at
the time, legislation was passed by the Clinton Administration punishing banks for not
approving such loans. Burying one's head in the sand will not change these facts.
We like Michelle Malkin. As many of our readers have indicated over the past few
months, she tells it like it is.
Our readers will also tell you in a millisecond that they do not condone language that
promotes or encourages the physical harm of any candidate, regardless of party. And I
guarantee you that this publication will be among the first to condemn anyone who uses
demeaning words against anyone, regardless of their race or their beliefs. We do not
stand for that type of conduct, and we never will.
What I failed to mention in the piece about the Time Magazine article is irrelevant. I
don't care if the person who penned the article was on the moon when he or she wrote it.
Time is on every newstand in America, and to suggest that its readership (which I would
assume would include Americans) should feel sorry for foreign oil producing nations, is
just backward.
We feel a push toward hardline socialism is wrong.. It goes against just about
everything that has made this country great. If you feel different, then so be it. We
feel close allegiance with convicted felons (Rezko), racists (Wright), and unrepentant
terrorists (Ayers) is a dangerous thing in the White House. If you feel otherwise, then
so be it. We feel the media should be unbiased, not so much in opinion columns, but in
straightforward news stories. If you don't agree, then fine. That is your right.
I have no idea what will happen Nov. 4. I just hope the person who wins will govern
our nation with a fair and honest hand. Surely you agree.
One more thing: Please relay our appreciation to your sister for subscribing to the
Levy County Journal. It is because of people like her that we are able to keep informing
the.citizens of Levy County about issues that matter the most. Thanks to you for reading
as well (but if it is going to raise your blood pressure, then please stop.)

Tough days ahead?


By Rick Burnham
Editor

One of the many double standards perpetuated by the mainstream media
these days involves "negative campaigning." Everything that comes
out of the mouth of John McCain or Sarah ."
Palin is immediately characterized as negative .
campaigning, while Barack Obama and Joe Biden can
continuously speak of "Bush's third term" and do so without
consequence.
I have never had a problem with this sort of strategy,
regardless of which side it originates from. Voters need to
know what to expect of a candidate, be it good or bad. The
more information they get, the better equipped they are to -
make an informed choice.
So, less than a week away from the most important
election of our lives, here is a quick look at what the future
likely holds for our great country.
Is it negative? Completely. But it is also factual, at least as I see it. This is the last
chance to put down the Kool-Aid, take off those, rose-colored glasses and face a little
reality.
Health care: The window in which everyone in America gets health care is going to
be short. It will be a happy time at first, with people who really need the care getting it.
At some point though, the demand will overwhelm the supply, and an element of our
society perhaps senior citizens will no longer get health care. Think of it this way:
two parties, one with a pay-as-you-go bar, and the other with an open bar. People at the
first party drink sparingly, while those at the second bar drink like fish. With everyone
crowding up to the healthcare bar for more and more coverage, the system will
eventually bog down. And, eventually, you and I will share the extra cost of keeping it
afloat.
Taxes: It is estimated by some that Barack Obama has more than $1 trillion in social
programs'planned. Those who make the most money are simply not going to pay all
of that. The top 1 percent of income earners in the nation already pay 40 percent of the
taxes. Some are going to bail at the first sign their rates are going higher. Rumors are
that Exxon, who pays $80 billion in taxes each year, may be headed to Canada if Mr.
Obama wins on Tuesday. A number of individuals have indicated they will stop working


as much, in order to make less, so that they will not have to pay as much to support
others unwilling to work at all.
More importantly, businesses big and small will find themselves having to lay off
workers in order to pay their taxes. Prepare yourselves for the highest unemployment
rates since the Jimmy Carter administration.
All in all, it is a recipe for disaster.
Freedom of Speech: Get ready for the Fairness Doctrine, a federal communications
policy that requires radio stations to afford time for "conflicting views of public
importance." This is the far left's answer to the vast popularity of talk radio which has
become a central medium for Conservatives, who do not have the luxury of having their
viewpoints put on the television or in mainstream newspapers.
The left's plan? Require radio stations to give equal time for the liberal side of issues
(a product that has been put on the market before without success) hoping to eventually
drive people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity from the airwaves. With a liberal in
the Oval Office, they will be able to do just that.
That's where it all starts. Who knows where it all ends. Eventually, you won't be able
to speak your mind without government censors stepping in to put a stop to it. Maybe
not in my lifetime or yours, but quite possibly in that of our children or grandchildren.
Gun control: The banning of guns would be a direct assault on the Constitution, and'
it is hard to imagine anyone being able to do that. But never underestimate the ability
of a liberal mind to find, ways to control your life. Remember when cigarettes were a
buck a pack? They are five times that now. Just wait until the price of shotgun shells is
multiplied by five. At some point,in our future, ammunition is going to become very
expensive, and a certain level of gun control will thus be achieved.
National security: This country enjoys a vast amount of resources, and a great
number of people willing to pay their share of the bill. But the pot of money given to the
government to run the country is not bottomless. With more and more social programs
on the docket, and more and more people looking to the government for their share of
the free stuff, something will have to suffer.
To a far-left leaning Democrat, there is no better target for cuts than defense
spending. Whether'it be the Department of Homeland Security, or the Department of
Defense, the cuts will eventually manifest themselves in a far less secure nation. And
with the highly destructive weaponry out there today, it is easy to see a.major city going
bye-bye very quickly. Possibly a great nation as well.'
And that will make the George W. Bush administration seem like the good old days.
Choose wisely on Tuesday.


Gasoline prices are cheap in the Midwest, but not here


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Gasoline prices remain something of a mystery
to me, and an irritation.
I was chatting with my brother-in-law in
Wisconsin by phone Sunday when I learned
he was buying regular unleaded gasoline for $2.09 per
g a l l o n . - . . .. . ....- -
He has been buying his gas in Cliisago City, Mihn.,a
little, out of-the-vway place in northern Minnesota where
he works as a pastor.
I mention our phone conversation because gasoline in
Chiefland remains at about $2.55 per gallon.
Some things are difficult to explain.
I've always said that hate is a waste of energy. On the
other hand, I think excessively high gasoline and diesel
prices are worthy of my contempt.
While it is true gas prices have dropped in the past
few months from $4.25 per gallon in some areas of Levy
County to $2.71 per gallon for regular test (as of this
writing), the price remains outrageously high around here
and elsewhere in Florida.
The same is true of Wisconsin. My brother-in-law buys
his gas in Chisago City because he can't buy it for less
than about $2.65 in most areas he travels in Wisconsin.
The price of a barrel of crude oil has dropped about
80 percent since the huge spike a month or so ago, but
gasoline and diesel prices haven't dropped as much. I call
that thievery.
When the Nov. 4 election has come and gone, I plan to
write every member of Congress and the new president,
whoever that is, to request a federal criminal investigation
of the oil companies and the problem with high prices.
That's the beauty of e-mail. One copy can go to hundreds
of places.
They can and will ignore my e-mail, of course.
I favor capitalism and free enterprise, but stealing falls
into an entirely different category, and the gasoline and
diesel prices I have been subjected to over the past few
months fall into the category of theft. It reminds me of the
gas thieves who used to steal from my dad's bulk gas tank
on our dairy farm.
Nighttime raids of the gas tank were fairly common
until dad put a bright yard light over the tank and
padlocked it overnight. Our dog Fluff took care of the
rest. He loved to greet nighttime gas thieves with a quick


nip to the ankle.,
There are federal statutes on the books that can be
used to investigate sophisticated criminal enterprises that
brazenly steal from the American people. Let's put those
statutes to good use for a change investigating, white
collar crime. Let's find out if oil company executives
need to spend a few years in the federal pen. '
I may be in a more forgiving mood if gasoline prices
,drop to Chisago City levels or lower. . ;
I doubt it will do much good for Congressional
committees to bring top oil industry officials to
Washington to lie about why their companies are making
$12 billion in profits every three months. Been there and
.done that. Those officials have already testified with a
straight face that $4 gas was completely justified and the
prices were being driven by market forces.
I do'believe the United States needs to drill for more
domestic oil. We need to wean the United States off
foreign oil supplies. We are extremely vulnerable at
this stage to foreign "economic attack" if countries like
Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria decide to cut off our
supply of oil.
At the same time, we need to begin an aggressive
program to develop alternative energies to power our
cars and trucks. Hydrogen fuel cells, electric cars and
solar energy are three of the most promising alternative
energies.
If gasoline and diesel prices were to drop below $2
per gallon, we would not need to abandon our efforts
to develop these energies. The country is much too
vulnerable at this point. I don't think lower gasoline
prices should be an excuse for neglecting to increase
domestic oil drilling or not pursuing alternative energies.
At the same time, we need to use more wind energy
and solar energy to power our homes and lessen our
. dependence on oil and other fossil fuels.
A friend of my recently pointed out that the
government has essentially nationalized big investment
banks on Wall Street. She felt that was a waste of time
and money, but she said she wouldn't mind if the federal
government nationalized oil companies to control prices.
I am not sure I would go that far, but I see her point.
We do need to control oil and gasoline prices. But I
have the feeling that turning private oil companies into
government-owned facilities miglt spur unintended
consequences. My guess is that government-owned oil
companies would turn into massive bureaucracies rather


than efficient, spend-thrift agencies. There's no telling
what would happen to supplies or prices.
On the other hand, the federal government, Congress
and the President shouldn't pretend there's little they
can do about gasoline and oil prices or about developing
alternative energies. I think any federal politician who
claims that the free market should develop alternative
energies on its own should be singled out for public
rebuke by Congress. The free market invented $4 per ,
gallon gasoline. The free market invented investment
banking that made unscrupulous loans and begged for big
government handouts (bailout). Oil and gas companies
need serious government oversight and regulation. It
doesn't exist now.
We need a fossil fuel bridge that carries us through to
the timd when we can tap into reliable future alternative
energies on a national scale. That means we need more
domestic oil and gas.
Meantime, I think the government should begin
investigating ways to give the homeowners a sizeable
tax break perhaps as much as $20,000 per home to
convert existing and new homes to solar homes.
These solar homes could be taken off the electric grid,
which means owners would not purchase electricity from
power companies and cooperatives, they would sell them
their excess electricity. If this were to occur, our energy
crisis would be less serious. We would need less coal, less:
oil, less natural gas and probably no new nuclear power
plants.
My solar home idea is not pie in the sky. It's really not
my idea. Someone suggested it to me. But I think it could.
happen and it would work. We have already spent close
to a trillion dollars on two wars. Why not channel some
of our federal tax dollars into a domestic solar energy
program that. would make us less dependent on fossil
fuels. Imagine being free of that $150 power bill every
month.
Let me also say that I am not trying to put the power
companies and cooperatives out of business. And I realize
that converting homes to solar power would make them
more valuable and that would mean the owners would
pay more property taxes..But I also believe solar energy
is one of the cutting.edge technologies we need to think
about as we demand lower gasoline and diesel prices in
the modem era.
In the meantime, it's unfortunate we can't all take
advantage of Chisago City gas prices.


Letter, from Page 10A


unsatisfactory because we would lose the ability
to spend any state money foi the upkeep of the
buildings. They recommend that we make no
additional major improvements to the buildings
so that on the next survey or if something major
happens to the buildings, it would definitely
be a candidate for replacement under the state
Special Facilities funding mechanism. I shared
this information with the Board in an open
meeting and with the faculty and staff of WHS
at one of our Chalkboard Chats. Ask the leader
of the DOE survey team. These are the real facts!
Get it straight Bob!
There is no doubt that Chiefland High School
as well as some other schools has aging facilities.
However, you must either be able to declare
the entire facility unsatisfactory or be able to
demonstrate a use for the buildings that are in
usable condition, if you want the state to assist
with the funding. With the newer administration


and auditorium building at CHS this is a greater
challenge. The Board may have to look at funding
mechanisms that replace buildings one at a time.
Our students deserve the best. j
In closing, I will take this opportunity to
thank the citizens for allowing me to serve you
as superintendent. I have no desire to do anything
other than give retirement a chance and spend
time with my family, grandchildren, church and
a little fishing. I will extend an offer to assist in
a smooth transition to whomever the people of
Levy County elect to take the reins for the next
four years. My guide in all that I do is my Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ! I ask the voters of Levy
County to seek their own spiritual guidance in
the decision they make on Nov. 4. I urge you to
vote for integrity and honesty.

Clifton V. Norris
Superintendent


Oct. 30, 2008


Having been made aware of Mr. Norris' response to the interview Terry Witt
wrote, I am grateful for the opportunity to reply.
I know that Mr. Norris is retiring and I wish him much enjoyment and happiness
as he pursues a more relaxed atmosphere. I regret that he felt the necessity of writing a
letter, as he phrased it in his words, "filled with anger, vengeance, and obsession."
I stand by my platform which has been the same from the beginning:
We will pursue an administrative climate which focuses on the needs of
students.
We will prepare for the FCAT as the starting point and not the finish line.
We believe in the importance of discipline and safety for students.
We envision many opportunities for positive and progressive changes.
As Superintendent, I will work diligently to bring our school system into the 21's
Century via: technology, equipment, curriculum, and facilities. It is imperative that
all stakeholders work as a team to accomplish our goals.
I sincerely wish Mr. Norris much happiness in his retirement.

Respectfully,
Robert 0. Hastings
Candidate for Superintendent

Safety experts: Practice these Halloween tips this year


Halloween is a time of great fun for children, but it can
be a little scary for parents and drivers. Children are often
out after dark, crossing busy streets, and perhaps going to
unfamiliar homes.
"With excited kids frantically going from neighbor to
neighbor, drivers need to be particularly cautious," said
Ray Palermo, director of public information for Teachers'
Insurance Plan TM. "However, by following some simple
advice, parents, children, drivers and homeowners can all
have a safe, enjoyable time."
If children are out at night, drivers need to be


particularly careful at dusk and when driving either over a
hill or around a curve, where visibility is limited,. Use high
beams to see and be seen.
Trick-or-treaters should always be accompanied by an
adult or travel in a group. Children should be told not to eat
any unwrapped candy or treats until they return home where
their parents can see them. Make sure kids have already
eaten before heading out may help..
Parents may want to limit kids to local events run by
police stations, firehouses, senior citizen centers or local
businesses, or organize their own through their school.


Parents should incorporate reflective tape in costumes
or add bright colors to increase visibility. Make-up rather
than masks should be worn to help ensure that children have
an unobstructed view of their surroundings.
Children should stay on the sidewalk or if none is
available, walk facing the lane of traffic, and they should
carry a flashlight.
Homeowners should clear their yards of anything
that can be tripped over and be sure to have a front door or
walkway light on, and refrain from decorations that use an
open flame that could ignite a child's costume.

"The difference between our JV

handed the ball off to running back

Bronson defense with great speed
and quick moves.
The 5-foot 9-inch Jones,

The final score for Bronson
came on a 50-yard pass from
Barber to Jessie Waybright

after.

Bronson High School's long
tradition of producing winning
basketball teams has yet to carry
over to the football program, as.
first year coach Al Cooksey found
out Friday.
The senior-dominated Eagle
footballteam lost 48-15 to team it
was favored to beat -- St. Joseph's
Academy in St. Augustine.
"I'm totally embarrassed,"
Cooksey said.
Cooksey had coached most of
the players on the St. Augustine
team the previous four years and
was convinced Bronson would
prevail, ,but the end result was
Bronson's third consecutive loss.
He said his seniors haven't
been able to turn the corner and
start a winning tradition.
"They're used to losing,"
Cooksey said.
Cooksey has invited every
member of the junior varsity
football team to play varsity ball.
The JV lost only once this season,
and Cooksey said they played-
with a great deal of heart.

Chiefland JV falls to Newberry in '08 finale


(Editor note: The following story was inadvertently
left out of last week's edition of the Levy County Journal.
The Journal staff regrets the omission, and congratulates
the Chiefland JV team on their efforts both on and off the
field in 2008.)

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Chiefland High School junior varsity football team
season ended last week on a 44-yard Newberry touchdown
reception with 14 seconds left in the game.
Chiefland lost 38-30.
Coach Mark Lundy said he was proud his team continued
to battle.
"I'd rather go down fighting with them, rather than have
them lay down," he said. "Even though the kids got beat
they never gave up. I'm proud 6f their effort."
The Chiefland JV was 90 percent freshmen. Most of the
sophomores were already playing varsity.
Newberry marched down the field on its opening drive
and scored in less than a minute on a pass play to Darius
McDaniel. The game ended the same way. McDaniel, a tall
receiver, broke loose to make a fingertip catch in full stride
and put the game out of reach.
The Indians used the remaining 14 seconds following
McDaniel's reception to move the ball to the Newberry
25 on pass receptions to Marquis Greene and a run by
quarterback Deric Allen. The clock ran out as Greene
caught the final pass at the Panther 25 and was tackled.
Lundy said part of the problem was that his starters had
to play on both sides of the ball. They ran out of energy by
the end of the night.


Chiefland ended the season 1-4, but was 1-1 in the
district.
Robby McCabe ran for Chiefland's opening.score with
6:22 left in the first quarter. Allen added the two- point
conversion to tie it at 8-8.
Newberry drove 78 yards on its next possession to score
on a 20-yard run by McDaniel. Troy Fowler ran for the
two-point conversion, giving Newberry a 16-8 lead with
3:03 left in the third.
Chiefland returned the favor, driving from its own 13 to
score on an 18-yard run by McCabe with 3:48 left in the
half. Allen added two points on a quarterback keeper to tie
the score at 16-16.
The Panthers scored quickly on the following possession
on a 20-yard run by David Warner. Byron Bradley ran for
the two-point conversion with 2:22 left in the half, giving
Newberry a touchdown lead;
Chiefland tied the score in the third quarter after driving
from its own 37 to score on a 14-yard pass from Allen to
Greene for a touchdown. Allen threw a quick strike to Bo
Beauchamp for the two-point conversion, tying the score
at 24-24 with 6:04 left in the third quarter.
Newberry returned fire, driving from its own 26 on the
next possession to score from 25 yards out on a run by
Bryon Bradley. The two-point conversion failed, leaving
the score 30-24 with 2:56 left in the third quarter.
Chiefland refused to quit. Late in the fourth quarter
the Indians drove from their own 46 to score on a pass to
Greene. The extra point attempt failed, leaving the score
tied at 30-30 with 50.4 seconds left in the game.
But the tie was broken when McDaniel caught the
fingertip pass to score with 14.3 seconds to go. Fowler ran
for the two-point conversion.

Shelbie Hastings and Jessica Steed played their final game at the Chiefland
gymnasium Oct. 23.

.Chiefland countered with a two-yard
plunge from Tyson with four minutes left
in the half. The score came moments after
linebacker Tommy Sheffield picked off a
Henry pass and rumbled 60 yards to the
six-yard line.
Trinity came right back, however, on a
five-play, 60-yard scoring drive to go up
14-7. Rhodes danced in from five yards out
to put his team ahead with 2:09 left in the
half.
Chiefland got the ball back on its own 35,
and covered the distance on a single play.
Tyson rolled to his left and lobbed a pass
to Davis, who tight-roped his way down
the sideline to the delight of the Chiefland
crowd.
But an upset was not to be on this night.
Trinity found its rhythm in the second
half behind Rhodes and Henry, who
completed four passes for 156 yards after

several ball exchanges the Red Devils had
the football at the West Port 34-yard line,
with 5:27 showing on the third quarter

In the end, it was not the final home
match that five Chiefland senior volleyball
players had hoped for. But in the beginning,
things looked promising.

one victory 25-21 over visiting Trenton Oct.
23, but dropped the next three games 25-
15, 25-8 and 25-17 before a raucous crowd
Inside the Chiefland High School gym.
The match concluded the home careers
of Brittany Davis, Jessica Steed, Kayla
Braswell, Renashia Bowers and Shelbie
Hastings.
Shelby Stone contributed a number


of unreturnable kills during the match,:
including three down the stretch as the
Lady Tigers took game two of the match.
Chiefland head coach Emily Gore said
Stone's play was key to Trenton's big win.
"The only person who could stop No.
5 (Stone) tonight was No. 5," Gore said
following the game. "She played very
well."
Gore said the excitement of senior night
contributed to her team's early success,
adding that the team just could not sustain
that energy throughout the evening.
"They were motivated by it (senior
night)," she said.
"It was a great game one. We just
couldn't maintain it."

Five Points of Life Bike Ride Closing Celebration, Oct. 29
Cedar Key, Fla. will be the location of the Five Points of Life Bike
Ride closing ceremonies on Oct 29. The Ride began Oct. 1 in Mobile,
Ala., and wound 2,000 miles through Mississippi, Tennessee, South

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 team consisted of a small group of cyclists and support
crew, and each member is selected for their personal connection to one or
more of the five points. 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 in 1997.
LifeSouth Community Blood Centers invites all Cedar Key and
Levy County residents to join us from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the

Springhouse members have started planning for their 2009 quilt show. Hopefully, the
mmuft ---.A















show will be a community event for early fall and will feature many of the quilts made
over the last two years Entries are always accepted from other quilters in the area to give
the show some added variety. This will be a judged show; however, this does not mean
that quilters are actually competing against each other. The purpose of judging is to larn

new ideas and techniques to enhance quilting skills. The judge will eventually select
the best-constructed quilts to be awarded ribbons.
Mr. Will Allen and the Lancaster young people were out doing much-needed painting
and yard work to the Springhouse property. Springhouse is fortunate to own their own

property and building, thanks to the White family of Chiefland. It does however require
upkeep. Thanks to Will Allen and others from Lancaster, the Springhouse building has a
new coat of paint, plus the yard has been mowed and maintained by the Lancaster work
crew. This is a great service provided by the young men and their leaders for this
community and is certainly appreciated. You can see these work groups out and about in
the community working on many public and not-for-profit buildings and grounds.
Springhouse will be slowing down for the end-of-the-year holidays. Many of the
members are working on gift items and getting ready to enjoy their family and friends for
the season.
For information on Springhouse or to become a member, contact any Springhouse
member or contact Lois Scott, 463 2207.

Log Ca6iH Quilters


Log Cabin Quilters met on Thursday, Oct. 23, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum.
More quilts are being made, and soon we start putting everything up for
the quilt show. Quilting goes on, as well as looking for patterns to make new
quilts.
Don't forget the church luncheon coming up the 11t of November. It has
always been a great fellowship day and we look forward to seeing old friends
and making new ones.
Nick and six boys were out Tuesday and we got most of the quilt show
notices ready to mail. We still have more to send and we are really looking
forward to our 25th Quilt Show. So many memories; still can't believe we have
had that many shows and we hope for many more to come.
We enjoyed having Cora Lee and Franklin Ward over from Ocala. They
brought boxes of clothes that we take over to the jail in Gainesville. So far we
have taken four loads to them.
Lunch was so good today with fried okra, rice, macaroni, chicken, cabbage
and rutabagas, salad, squash, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, marble cake and so much
more.

You never know who's gonna show up at your door.
On Halloween, it could be a prince or a princess, ghost or
goblin (I see they're selling Joe Biden costumes), lions,
tigers, or bears (oh my) or even an angel or two. I really
loved trick-or-treating back in the day when it was more
or less safe to walk the streets of your neighborhood and
actually go door to door, whether you knew the family or
not. Of course, there was this 'razor blade in the apple'
thing going on but none of us kids ate the fruit anyway;
we went straight for the candy, which in my case, turned
immediately into cavities, confirming my theory that all
big holidays are a vast dental conspiracy.
Our oldest daughter inherited my terrible teeth, and at
the age of 4 had to have five silver crowns. (My husband
says that if he ever marries again, which of course would
be on the occasion of my early demise, he is going to
check her teeth first, like an old horse. Just like an old
horse, I hope she bites him.)
An unexpected visit occurred one summer Sunday
evening when we traveled down to Augusta to stay with
my mother (our appointment with a pediatric dentist
being the next morning). She had prepared beef fondue
for us; you know, the fun meal where you cook your steak
in the fondue pot at the table. It was very entertaining
with children ages 2 and 4, not to mention I had to
keep a sharp eye on my husband who at another fondue
had actually embedded the very sharp fork in his hand
(another story).
After supper, my mother undertook bathing the girls,
while my husband undertook a little R&R with our dogs.
I proceeded to tackle the kitchen. Now, there was a fair
amount of meat left and I asked Mother what she would "
like to do with it: cook it now or put it in the fridge.


ad


She said to just put it up, and I, being the ever-obedient
daughter, proceeded to cook it. I fried it and made a
wonderful gravy and let it simmer while I worked on
washing up the fine china and crystal.
About that time, the front doorbell rang.' My husband
and I answered it together, along with the dogs, who
normally do not react well to strangers and some family
members, for that matter. There stood a large African-
American lady and two small boys. She said that she
was desperate for money and asked if we could help her.
My mother was there by now and said she didn't have
any cash but would be glad to help her with groceries.
We both asked her at the same time if they were hungry
and would they like some supper, to which she replied a
grateful, "Yes."
In addition to the meat, there had been a small amount
of green beans and three biscuits left over. We seated
them at the dining room table, reset it with the fine china
and crystal and served them savory steak and biscuits
with green beans. It was exactly enough for them. The
boys were incredibly well-mannered and played with
our girls and our dogs after the meal. The dogs never
even growled. .My mother, who lived on a very modest
income, filled two bags wiih food from her pantry and
told the woman that she was sharing what God had given
to her. They wouldn't accept a ride to their lodgings, and
left us with smiles on their faces.
Two days later, Mother and friends tried to find them
but no one had ever seen or heard'of them. Did we
entertain Angels, unaware? Undoubtedly, yes. No tricks,
just an unbelievable treat.

MOVIE CHOICES FOR KIDS

"HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR" AND "MAX PAYNE":


HIGHSCHOOL MUSICAL 3:SENIOR
YEAR
(Running time: 100 minutes)
RatedG
Starring: Zac Efron, Ashey Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgins, Corbi Bleu, Monique Coleman

I don't know when I've been to a more delightful movie that was cheerful, bursting
with lively music and dancing and colorful beyond belief. Oh, yes, "Mamma Mia"
comes to mind.
Finally! A G-rated movie that isn't boring! "High School Musical 3: Senior Year"
is the story of these high-schoolers and their college choices, romances, trials and
tribulations while putting on an original high school musical before they graduate.
The innocent love of Troy and Gabriela is set to the beat of original songs with cool
dancing thrown in. The joyful, energetic spirit of this movie and irresistible beat of the
music made me smile and dance in my seat. While the issues are definitely high school,
there were much younger children in the audience enjoying the movie. While kids
as young as 7 might not understand the issues, they will love the music and dancing.
Rarely do we find a movie you can take younger kids to that won't make you fall asleep.
It's like taking your children to a Broadway musical for the price of a movie ticket.
With no violence, no bad language and no sex, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year,"
is refreshing, cheerful and breezy -- the perfect Saturday afternoon flick for families
with kids 7 and up and grandparents, too.


AS DIFFERENTAS NIGHTAND DAY

MAXPAYNE
(Running time 99 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring; Mark Wahlberg,JvIila Kunis, Beau Bridges, Chris "Ludicris".Bridges-,?'

Taken from a video game, "Max Payne" is about a police officer bent on avenging
the death of his wife and baby. It's been several years, but Max has not forgotten. Every
night he scours the city for new leads. He is bitter, uncommunicative and mercilessly
violent.
The city and the movie are very dark, almost sepia toned reminiscent of "Sin City"
- with little color or sunshine. It's always snowing and the movie takes place mostly at
night. It was so cold on the screen that I began to feel cold and zipped up my jacket.
This setting added a frigid aspect to the heartless, casual violence.
Evil characters are around every comer, lying in wait for Max. Nothing deters him
and nothing stops him until he gets the truth. The plot takes several turns, but I ended up
guessing who the big bad guy was before it was revealed.
There is so much violence I don't know why it's PGG-13 and not R. There are scary
Valkyries in shadow flying around during death scenes. There is some bad language
but no sex. The one scene where a young woman tries to seduce Max is sordid and
depressing, not sexy. She doesn't succeed.
Perhaps this type of story and violence plays better in video games. I came out of the
theater feeling empty, like I had wasted my time. "Max Payne" should be OK for boys
,13 or 14 and older. I doubt girls will like this movie, or most adults, either.

Joachim.

Derek Schmidt kicks a field goal for FSU.


Garret Schmidt warms up for


Father and son take time out during a recent practice.


Like kicker, like son


Chiefland junior has


pedigree to do big things

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

It is just a tad bit early, and perhaps somewhat unfair,.to compare father and son at this
point.
But if you go on lineage and genes alone, it is easy to see how kicker Garret Schmidt
might at some point play a key role in the success of Chiefland's varsity football team. After
all, Schmidt's father Derek was once a difference maker for the Florida State University
Seminoles, and saw limited preseason action with three different NFL teams.
The younger Schmidt handles placekicking and punting for the 2008 Chiefland squad,
while dad serves as a part-time assistant coach, offering suggestions and advice for his
son throughout each game.
That advice has been forged through years of experience, playing alongside the likes
of Deion 'Sanders and Michael Irvin, and playing for legendary coaches Bobby Bowden
and Tom Landry.
Derek Schmidt kicked for Sarasota Riverview in the early '80s, and then made his
way to Tallahassee and Florida State. While there he met Sonya Richburg, a student from
Chiefland, who he later married.
"She played basketball and softball here at Chiefland, and actually went out for those
teams at Florida State," Derek said. "She could really play some hoops."
Derek was a fixture on the Seminoles' team virtually from the moment he stepped on
campus. In fact in 1984, his freshman year, he kicked a 54-yarder against the University
of Miami. He made three first-half field goals that day, giving FSU a 9-0 halftime lead.
They went on to Win the game 38-9.
He would later reference that game during discussions with Dallas Cowboy receiver
Michael Irvin, a Hurricane player. Both were part of the Cowboy team during the 1988
preseason. It would be the final year for Landry at the helm of America's team.
It would also be.the NFL's infamous "scab" season, when collective bargaining and the
player's strike drove the league to employ replacement players.
"Right before the season started, the strike happened," Schmidt said. "Three or four
other rookies and I were trying out for the kicker position, which had been held the season
before'by Roger Ruzik, who was holding out for more money."
The job eventually went to Luis Zendejas. Schmidt would go on to have tryouts with
the Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins, but logged no regular season experience.
But the NFL's loss was Chiefland's gain. The Schmidts settled down in Levy County,
and soon welcomed Garrett and little sister Meghan now 13.
"Garrett was actually born in Tallahassee, and Meghan was born in Gainesville," he
said.


Ratings as reported by the NRA Septemoer 15, 2008 for the General
Election and printed in the November 2008 issue of American Rifleman.


Derek currently works for the Alachua County Sheriff's
Department, which has given him a unique opportunity to
keep kicking. For the past five years, he has played on the
Orlando Guardians nonprofit semi-pro team, one of more
than a dozen such squads across the country who make up
the National Public Safety Football League. With Schmidt
handling placekicking duties, the Guardians captured the
2007 Division II National Championship, beating the Central
Texas Wolfpack.
He connected on four of five field goals during the year,
including two 48-yarders, a 47-yarder, and a 37-yarder.
The senior Schmidt said he is still kicking because of the
generosity of a handful of Chiefland sponsors, including
Badcock Home Furnishing, Scoggins Chevrolet, Mitch's
Gold and Diamonds, dentist Jennifer Brown-Jackson, Hogan
Brothers Mobility Services, and orthodontist Bill Martin.
Garrett came along well after the NFL tryouts, but arrived
in time to witness his dad's semi-pro heroics. He was also on
the field when FSU inducted Derek into the school's Hall of
Fame in 1997.
"I took him on the field with me," Derek said. "The
induction ceremony was at halftime during a game. That
was fun for him."
Garrett began to consider trying out for placekicking on
the Chiefland team during his freshman year.
"All my friends were playing football, so I said 'Yeah
I will come out and play,'" he said. "I started out playing
receiver on the junior varsity, but the coach knew who my
dad was and just assumed that I kicked."
Weight room work has increased Garrett's ability on the
field since that time, to the point where he is able to put
kickoffs in or near the opponents' end zone. He has been
fairly consistent on extra points, but has yet to make a field
goal.
That day will eventually come, Derek said, perhaps this
year, perhaps next.
"He could stand to gain another 20-25 pounds, which he
should do by next year," Derek said.
In the meantime, Garrett has attempted a few kicking
camps, including one at the University of Auburn. He was
also a recent guest of the University of South Florida, along
with Indians running back Stephen Davis. Ideally, he would
like to attend Appalachian State, or maybe follow in his
father's footsteps at FSU.

Please vote for my
Papa Oz


Dear Citizens of Levy County,
The 2008 election season is about to come to an end. I'm sure all
of you are ready for November 4th to get here and to see who will be
the new leaders of our Nation, who will be the Legislative leaders in our
State offices, and last but not least who will be your County officials. Be-
lieve me when I say that I and, I'm sure the other candidates also are just
as ready as you.
I once again ask for your vote to be your next Levy County Property
Appraiser. I ensure you that my experience over the past years has more
than prepared me to lead this office in a direction that will provide you,
the citizens, with outstanding public service.
I firmly believe that with my leadership and encouragement the staff
of your Appraiser's office will have a much improved public servant at-
titude and with that will come an improved internal relationship, a greater
desire for cooperation and most of all an improved respect for those who
pay the bills, you, the taxpayers.
I will be very prudent with your tax dollars as they are used in the
administration of this office and will use my position to promote fiscal re-
sponsibility. Government must figure out how to break the cycle of spend,
spend, spend.
I believe the current ad valorem tax system is broken and in need of
repair, and I will use this position to promote some much needed change
that will bring back some form of equity to our tax roles. I will work hard
to create solutions and not give you excuses.
My main goal is to serve you the citizens of Levy County, First, with
respect: to listen to your side of the story when you have concerns and
questions and be willing to make changes when they are needed. Sec-
ond, with competence: to show you the basis for how we arrived at our
decisions. Third, with discretion: to go to every means possible through
the use of the law to help ease the heavy burden of property taxation
with exemptions, use classifications and whatever means possible.
I will always be fair and will serve you with pride and a determined'
faith that I can make a good difference. I humbly ask that you give me
the opportunity to work for and with you. I would greatly appreciate your
vote of support on Election Day.

Thanks and God Bless, Osborn Barker
