Levy educators brace for budget cuts


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The fate of Levy County schools is dependent on the Florida special
legislative session that began in Tallahassee Monday and will last until
Jan. 16. The state has a $2.3 billion budget deficit that has to be made up
one way or another. One of the routes being considered is cuts to public
school funding.
So far for this school year there has already been a 6 percent cut to
Levy County public schools, $340 million statewide, said Levy County'
School Superintendent Bob Hastings. This special legislative session will
determine if another 1-2 percent will have to be cut. .
If so, the money will have to come from somewhere and there isn't
anything the school board isn't looking at, Hastings said.


Some of the potential cuts being investigated include reducing athletics
and the number of games played, asking teachers to take days off without
pay, reducing travel such as field trips, saving energy, canceling workshops,
renegotiating bus routes, and postponing the purchase of five new buses
this year, he said.
"Our main emphasis always will be to keep the integrity of the classrooms
and make cuts elsewhere," he said. "We want to be as conservative as
possible."
If the Florida legislature passes the education cuts, the Levy County
School Board will have to make decisions on which cuts to make.,
Some cuts can be approved quickly by administration, in other words,
by the superintendent, he said. These include narrowing and reducing the

Free produce arrives in

Bronson for those who need it

Staff Writer

People quietly waited in line
Saturday outside Bronson Town Hall
for free produce. Noone asked whether
they were poor. It wasn't important.
The produce giveaway was
sponsored by the Children's Table, an
organization founded 12 years ago by
Bill and Verna Brown to feed children
and adults. The idea is to help people
who need food.
"We feel blessed to be able to do
it," Brown said.
Sweet corn, zucchini and yellow
squash were distributed outside
Bronson Town Hall and at Mt. Pleasant
Baptist Church in Chiefland.
The produce wvas donated by Farm
Share, an organization in Florida City.
Farm Share receives food from farmers
that is surplus or not right for market.
It is delivered to various charities. The
Children's Table arranged for the semi
tractor-trailer to deliver five pallets
of sweet corn, nine pallets of yellow
squash and eight pallets of zucchini.
James Cobb, a town of Bronson
employee, used a front-end loader on


Volunteer Becky Looct
to the packaging area.


loan from the county road department
to unload the pallets. A swarm of
volunteers organized by Alfreda
Freeman bagged the produce.
Since its creation, the Children's
Table has distributed 23 million
pounds offood in 53 Florida counties.
In 2002 it distributed 9,000 pounds
of USDA commodities, Brown said.
He never thought it would grow to
this size.
The name. Children's Table
suggests the organization provides
food to children, and it does,
according to Brc-vn. But his
definition of children doesn't fit the
standard model.
"We discovered that we're all
children," Brown said. "We started
feeding people from our garden and
it started from there."

volunteer' in charge of Saturday's

Levy Sheriff's Office plans


conversion of 911 system


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Levy County Sheriff's Office has
received a $338,000 state grant to convert its
911 emergency call center to a modem digital
system.
Mike West, 911-coordinator for the sheriff's
office, said customers won't notice any change
after the system is installed in about six
months, but call center employees will see a
difference.
"We're just positioning for the future,"
West said. "We're just making it more robust
for us."
Residents call the 911 center when they
have emergencies. Dispatchers send law
enforcement officers to respond to the call.
The. primary change in hardware will be
the replacement of a large computer at the 911
office. All 911 calls are received through this
device and sent tp the 911 center. West said
he is negotiating with several companies that
offer the digital model.
The grant money was provided by a


state 911 committee. The funds are for 911
enhancements.
West also appeared before the county
commission Tuesday and received permission
to improve the 911-system in a different way.
Commissioners voted 3-0 to give West
permission to use $150,000 of money collected
from Levy County phone bills 50 cents pet
month from each customer to hook up a new
service called Intrado.
The system will save the county $1,531 per
,month by replacing Sprint and Embarq as the
phone system providers for the 911 center. The
sheriff's office will install a box provided by
Intrado to route calls to the center. Customers
can continue to use Sprint and Embarq in their
homes and businesses.
"This is a behind the scenes function,"
West said.
The 50 cent surcharge is imposed by
the county commission to pay for 911
improvements. The county has accumulated
$275,000 in the 911 fund. West said the
county needs to spend the money or lose it to
the state.

Official says feds will reimburse pier cost overruns


County has closed out

Story and photo by Terry Witt ..
Staff Writer ,.,


County officials have completed the $3.9
million County Fishing Pier in Cedar Key
and will be reimbursed for the $750,000
cost overruns, Levy County commissioners
learned Tuesday.
The announcement came from Teresa
Watson, who works for the clerk's finance
office and handled negotiations with the
Federal Emergency Management Agency,
the agency that funded the project.
Watson's comments came as good news
for commissioners.
The cost overrun money was spent
by commissioners with no promise of
reimbursement- by FEMA. They felt the
project was important enough to spend
the money. However, FEMA demanded
documentation of the expenses. That's why
it took so long.
Watson said the project began in 2004
after Hurricane Francis ruined the old
county dock, a wooden structure of exactly
the same dimensions as the new dock. The
old dock was 10 feet closer to the water's,
surface than its concrete replacement.
FEMA constructed the new fishing pier
to withstand harsh hurricane conditions.
Watson said the pier was built to Florida
Department of Transportation standards.
She said it's sturdy.

County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell (left) was chosen by her fellow
commissioners to serve a full term as chairwoman. She is signing county
government checks in this photo. Clerk Teresa Watson is landing her the
checks.


"You can drive a truck on it," she. said.
The height and bulk of the new fishing
pier has been a source of amusement for
some Cedar Key residents, although it has
gained popularity as a fishing, tourism and
sightseeing destination since opening in
July.
Butmore than one personhas commented
to Watson (tongue in cheek) that they plan


to tie themselves to the dock if a hurricane
approaches. Such is the strength of the
structure.
County Commissioner Lilly Rooks said
the $750,000 should not be considered a
financial windfall for the county whenever
it arrives from FEMA. She said the money
has already been spent. The county will
repay the funding sources it was borrowed


*from.
In other business:
Commission Chairwoman Nancy
Bell was approved by her fellow
board members to continue in
the chairmanship. Commissioner
Danny Stevens was selected as vice
chairman. The nominations were
made by Commissioner Lilly Rooks.
The board remains two members
short. Commissioners Sammy Yearty:
and Tony Parker were suspended from
office by the government following
their indictment in November on
bribery charges. The governor has
yet to appoint interim replacements.
Commissioners approved a zero
tolerance drug policy for Nature
Coast Transit, but the routine agenda
item led to a controversial suggestion
by Rooks, whose motion to approve
the policy passed 3-0. Rooks asked
why county commissioners were not
subjected to the same random drug
testing as their employees. She said
she believes they should be required
to take the same drug tests.
County Coordinator Fred Moody
said that could be added during the
next union contract negotiation, but
for now, only the employees holding
a commercial driver's license are
subjected to random drug testing.

Bronson might revise


its yard sale ordinance


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Bronson City Council members have
indicated that they will take a closer look at
ordinances regarding yard sales following a
local citizen's request that they do so.
Speaking at the council's monthly
meeting at town hall Monday, Sandra
Longoria told council members that she
was looking for clarification on how yard
sales are regulated within city limits.
"It seems like every time we get a warm
day, out go the tarps and the blankets and
the trucks and the clothes and everything
for yard sales," she said. "Is there a limit on
the number of yard sales?"
Longoria specifically referenced the $5
fee charged to nonresidents, and the waiver
of that fee for residents for their first yard
sales.
"Does that mean that as a town resident I
could have more than six a year and pay the
$5, or is there a limit?" she asked. "I have
nothing against people having yard sales as
long as they are within the context of the
ordinances to sell personal property from
the home and not purchasing items in other
places and coming to Bronson to set up and
resell them."
Town officials in attendance at the
meeting included Mayor Franklin Schuler,
Vice Mayor Beatrice Monigo, and Council
members Berlon Weeks, Melody LaFlam
and Aaron Edmonson. Weeks sympathized
with Longoria, saying that existing
ordinances regarding yard sales are perhaps


out of date.
"I think what we have to do is go back
over the ordinance and rewrite the ordinance
so that it is more specific because it is
very vague," he said.
Longoria also expressed frustration at
having to continuously remove yard sale
directional signs from her own property,
often times having to face angry yard sale
organizers while doing so.
"They are putting yard sale signs on your
property without asking you if they can do
so?" Weeks asked.
"Yes," she said. "I just quietly go over
and ask them to remove the signs. They get
all mad at me, and I just say I am sorry."
Longoria, who lives in the vicinity of
the Bronson Motel, said a location nearby
resembles a flea market at times.
"That seems to be the place that, every
time there is warm weather, it is there," she
said. "It is like a perpetual flea market."
Council members discussed the
differences between yard sales and events
in which people bought items at discount
stores and resold them at higher prices.
They also, expressed concern over the
enforcement of any revisions to the yard
sale ordinances.
"We can't afford to have an enforcement
officer," Edmonson said. "We will have
to charge a whole lot more for a yard sale
permit."
Council members said they would re-
examine existing ordinances and. look at
revising them before the springtime, when
yard sales tend to increase in numbers.


New representative files first bill
" For the 2008-2010 legislative term, new State Representative Leonard Bembry (D-
Greenville), has been given committee assignments that he says will make him effective
in protecting constituents of House District 10. :
He will serve as a member on, the Natural Resources Appropriations Committee, the
Agriculture & Natural Resources Policy Committee, the Economic Development Policy
Committee, and the State & Community Colleges & Workforce Policy Committee..
Bembry expressed his joy in the appointments and said, "I am excited that Speaker
Sansom has placed this confidence in me. With my longtime background in farming and
business, I feel I can effectively steer solid ideas by working with my colleagues to make
good things happen for the state."
Rep. Bembry has also filed his first House Bill for the 2009 Legislative Session. It is HB
109 and is titled Clinical, Counseling, and Psychotherapy Services. The legislation will
assist licensed clinical social workers to better monitor the mental health of their clients
and be able to get additional help for their clients by waiving confidential communications
under some circumstances.
Bembry commented, "Filing my first bill is very exciting. I am proud to be able to
serve the citizens of Florida in this capacity where I believe I can make a difference."
"In this time of economic hardship, our families are struggling. Such stress will
oftentimes make someone think in a way that they would not under more normal
conditions. Protecting our citizens is paramount," continued Bembry.
The 2009 Legislative Session will begin on March 3; however, legislators are in
Tallahassee through Jan. 16 for a Special Session on the budget.

number of games for spring sports, reducing transportation and terminating events.
Other things affect contracts and will have to be negotiated by the school board and
approved by the union, including teachers taking time off, he said.
Chiefland High' School Principal Pamela Asbell said she thinks everyone is a little
apprehensive with the economy like it is.
No matter what hand the legislation deals, the schools will have to make it work, and
that's how it's always been, she said.
"We do our jobs for the kids, not the money," Asbell said.
"So far all of my faculty, although they're not happy about it, they understand."
She said CHS has already cut down on some expenses to save money. Some of the
ways the school is saving is by: changing the hours the custodians work so they get
off earlier and won't have to run the electricity at night; having everyone turn off their
computers when they go home; field trips, baseball and softball games have been cut back
to reduce transportation; watching the thermostat in the classrooms; and generally being
cognizant of all actions to try to save.
"When you look at the economy of our state, something has to be reduced," she said.
"We're all making changes in our personal lives to be prepared for whatever's coming."

FOR MEETING FLORIDA'S

FUTURE ENERGY NEEDS..


Progress Energy Florida is working to ensure our state continues to have
the reliable power it needs. This includes possible new transmission
lines in your area.

To determine the best route for these transmission lines, we are working
with the Community Partnership for Energy Planning, a cross-section of
community leaders and representatives from Citrus, Hernando and Levy
counties. The potential route will largely follow an existing transmission
line in Citrus and Hernando counties. In Levy and northern Citrus counties,
new rights of way will be needed. In limited areas of Hernando County,
the company may need to widen its existing rights of way. Specific
information will be available at the meetings.

Commission will probe limestone test-pit permit


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Yankeetown resident Mike Lineberger continued to press Levy County
commissioners Tuesday for closure of a 17-acre test limestone mine pit in
Gulf Hammock, but the board decided instead to investigate his complaint as a
possible code enforcement violation.
Lineberger presented commissioners paperwork and a tape recording he
says proves the county commission attached conditions to the test pit permit
requiring it to be closed and filled with dirt a year after Tarmac completed-
testing.
He presented commissioners with tape-recorded' excerpts from the meeting
in which the decision was made. He offered to replay the comments'of Building
and Zoning Director-Rob Corbitt reading the conditions aloud.
County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said that wouldn't be necessary. She
suggested investigating Lineberger's allegations as a citizen code enforcement

complaint. Lineberger turned over his material to Brown.
Tarmac is seeking state and federal approval for a large limestone mine west
of U.S. 19. Tarmac mine Manager Jeff Harris said the company plans to begin
digging at the test pit site after it wins government approval of the mine.-
"When we start mining, we'll start from that place. We don't want to dig it
all out again," he said after the meeting.
Harris said he was surprised by the complaint about the test pit. He said the,
.company looked at the entire situation and thought it was in compliance.
Tarmac has submitted a permit application to the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, but has yet 'to file a permit request with the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, according to 'Harris. He said DEP has given the
company its air permit.
The company has submitted.a water use permit to the Southwest Florida Water
Management District. He said the.company expects to use 123,000 gallons of
water daily. He said that's the water that would leave the mine in trucks as wet
rock. The remaining water is recycled into the aquifer, he said.

'Bad guys' to pay for



mobile dispatch system

Funding was approved
by the Levy County
Commission Tuesday for
a new program that will
allow deputies to run
license plate numbers

checks from their patrol
cars without contacting
dispatchers.
Levy County
commissioners gave the
sheriff's office permission
to use $28,800 in criminal
fines to purchase a
special program that
gives deputies access
to information on their
patrol car laptops that had
been available in the past
only to dispatchers.
Many of the deputies
will need a four-hour
training course to run the
system.

In these tough economic times when people are out of

When the organization posted the date and time of
Saturday's shipment on a town bulletin board next to the
old Town Hall, word spread fast.
"The people were ready for it," she said. "They were
asking for it."

County officials express worry about


losing state transportation dollars


Florida special legislative

session ending Jan. 16 to decide

$2.3 billion state deficit

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

When the Florida Legislature began to wring
close to $2.3 billion out of the state budget this
week, Levy County commissioners were keeping
their fingers crossed that two state road programs for
tax-poor counties are not on the chopping block.
They are worried most about the Small County
Road Assistance Program (SCRAP). The program
for fiscally constrained counties funded two Levy
County road resurfacing projects worth more than
$4.5 million in 2008.
Fiscally constrained counties have a weak tax
base. The Florida Legislature recognized this fact
and created SCRAP and the Small County Outreach
Program (SCOP) to provide transportation funding
in these counties.
Whitehurst Construction recently completed the
resurfacing of approximately 12 miles of County
Road 339 from U.S. 27A to the Gilchrist County
line. Whitehurst Construction was low bidder for
the road project at $1,494,646. SCRAP allocated
$2,053,854 for the project.
Earlier in the year Anderson Columbia completed
the resurfacing of approximately 11 miles of County
Road 345 from Carter's Store south of Chiefland to
the Rosewood area. Anderson Columbia was low
bidder, at $1,403,369. Scrap allocated $1,886,007
for the project.
The most recent project was the resurfacing of
about 10 miles of County Road 343 past the women's
work prison south of Bronson. Anderson Columbia
was low bidder at $2,801,901. SCOP allocated
$2,631,899 for the project. The county used its own
equipment to widen and prepare the road bed for
paving, which made up the difference between what
SCOP allocated and what the contractor had bid.
County Commissioner Lilly Rooks, who works
as the county's elected liaison with Tallahassee


lawmakers during the session, said she hasn't heard
anything about SCOP being lost, but she said Levy
County is no longer eligible for SCRAP funding
because its tax rate is too low.
Counties must have a tax 'rate of eight mills to
be eligible for SCRAP funding, she said. Levy
County's tax rate is 7.42 mills.
Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce
Greenlee said Levy County's ineligibility seems
unfair.
"You try to help the citizens of the county (with
lower taxes) and you get punished," Greenlee said.
.Rooks said the county asked state lawmakers last
year to amend language in SCRAP legislation to
include Levy County, but the governor vetoed the
bill. She heard later that other language had been
attached to the bill that Gov. Charlie Crist didn't
'like.
"We're worried about the entire budget, as far as
the Legislature is concerned," she said.
Another worry is that SCRAP might end in 2010.
Levy County-has asked the Legislature to continue
funding SCRAP.
State Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, is fighting
to preserve road funding for fiscally constrained
counties, according to Legislative Aide Kevin
Sweeny. Eleven of the 13 counties Dean represents
are fiscally constrained.
' Tuesday evening, Dean was still working on
SCRAP legislation as a reporter talked to Sweeny.
Greenlee said the county has been fortunate
that administrators with the Florida Department of
Transportation in Lake City have been good to work
with when the county needed help.
He recently paid a visit to Lake City when road
grant revenues to resurface County Road 32 fell
short of what was bid. Greenlee said FDOT officials
in Lake City listened to his request for additional
funding for the $1 million project and allocated an
additional $32,000.
Greenlee said Levy County needs programs such
as SCRAP and SCOP. He said Rooks has fought to
keep the programs, but there is concern about the
fate of these programs in the current economy.

This year



is different


By Rick Burnham
Editor

N ew Year's resolutions are meant to be broken,
and I have broken *.-*,. ... -,. .
them with the best .
of them. You name -
it, from cleaner living to losing
weight to writing a Pulitzer
Prize winning novel, I have
busted so many New Year's
promises over the years that
people close to me no longer
really listen to what I have to
say on Dec. 31.
But not this time. This time
it's different. This time I will
succeed.
This time, I will lose 35 pounds.
That's right, I am going to lose 35 pounds, and I have
put together a fail-proof plan to make it happen. It's a
can't-miss sort of thing, the kind of strategy that will
make people like Oprah Winfrey sit up and take notice.
It's pure genius and most certainly will make me famous
one day. Here's the essentials: eat better and get more
exercise.
OK, it's a bit more detailed than that. It involves a
daily practice of staying away from some of my all-time
favorite food and drink. Those include:
0- Soft drinks: I grew up next to my dad's barbershop
in Jas1 and every day I would ramble over and see if
I could talk him into giving me a Coke out of the drink
box there. It was one of those old-fashioned kind of
machines, with a small opening on a round lid. You would
turn a lever and the bottles would come around until one
appeared under the opening. There began my lifelong
love affair with Coke. I just could not get enough of it,
and to this day there is nothing I would rather drink than
Coca Cola. Can't do it though. Gotta lose 35 pounds.
O- Chocolate: I like chocolate. It is a wonderful
invention, right up there with electricity and the
autonPibile. And the fact that you can combine it with
so nih~-a other' things makes it een better.' Chocolate-" 1
covered cherries. Chocolate-covered peanuts. Chocolate-
covered caramel. Chocolate-covered everything. Or, in
my case, chocolate-covered nothing, because part of my'
New.Year's resolution is to stop eating chocolate.
1- Skittles: you may ask 'What is a grown man like
yourself, Rick, doing eating Skittles?' My response would
be 'Have you ever eaten a bag of Skittles? They are
amazing, a burst of flavor in each little piece. Dump half
a dozen into your mouth at once and feel the love. I bet
that if you saw a rainbow and went to the end of it and
held out the palms of your hands, they would fill up with
Skittles.' They are that special. But not any more. They
are off limits.
Ol Fried foods: Nowhere else in the world has a culture
created and perfected a more perfect delicacy than here
in the southern United States. It is not a slam against the
rest of the world, but we southerners just do better in the
kitchen, and one of the key staples of our important work
is fried foods. Fried chicken, chicken fried steak,- chicken
fried chicken, fried fish, fried okra, fried bananas. Hooters
fried chicken wings. Fried everything. But all that fried
goodness has a tendency to put pounds on you, not to
mention clog up an artery or two. It is going to break my
heart to do it, but it is probably best that I leave them
alone. Which brings me to my next problem food.
Hashibrowns: Yes, they are generally a fried food,
and should have been included in the previous entry. But,
for me, hash browns deserve their own special mention.
One day many years ago the best culinary minds in the
world got together and came up with a special dish just
for me. In the future, they reasoned, there will be a young
man named Rick with a special appetite. We must put
our heads together to find the perfect food for this young
man so that he will grow large and robust. That food is
hash browns. I just love them. But they don't love me, so
we must end this relationship, and end it now. Bye, hash
browns, pack your stuff and get out.
Hamburgers: Sometimes I wonder what the Earl
of Sandwich would say if he were around to have a
hamburger. (The Earl reportedly invented the sandwich
because he was too busy gambling to sit down and have
a regular meal.) He would almost certainly have to be
impressed with the burger, particularly the wide range of
options you have in choosing one. Everything from the
pint-sized Krystal to the Wendy's triple is available, each
with an incredible assortment of toppings. My current


favorite? The Hardees Chili Cheeseburger, a delectable
combination of all the best things in the world. That's in
the past, though. I have stopped thinking about it.
What does it leave me to eat? Salad. Hundreds
of leaves of bland lettuce covered with crispy bland
cucumbers and juicy bland tomatoes. Freshly cut
tasteless carrots and yucky black olives. Crunchy and
lackluster croutons sprinkled about. Broccoli. Spinach.
Maybe I will just cut back on the fried foods. Limit
my Skittles intake to a bag a week. One Snickers bar a
month. Chili cheeseburger, now and then.
2009 is going to be a long year.

How to properly regulate



the gas produced by cows


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Environmental Protection Agency is
proposing a greenhouse gas tax on livestock
that could be as much as $175 per dairy cow
and $87.50 for beef animals. The idea is to limit
global warming through a tax on the methane the animals
produce.
As best I can tell, the EPA officials who proposed this
rule have not been questioned about their sanity. Not yet
anyway. And this is not a joke. It's an honest to goodness
rule the federal EPA is about to saddle the cattle and dairy
industry with. .V k ,,, t
According to the story I read in a Wisconsin
publication called The Country Today, the average
U.S. dairy farm would face an annual greenhouse gas
permitting fee of $27,000. I'm sure that would be passed
on to consumers-in the form of higher milk prices.
The tax on beef animals would show up as higher
beef prices at your friendly neighborhood grocery meat
section.
This is being done in the name of combating global
warming. I personally favor fighting global warming,
if it exists. I think the jury is still out on the question
of whether global warming does exist or whether the
weather is just cycling in and out of warm and cold
phases.
Methane is produced when cattle belch. It is also
produced when cattle manure decomposes. I'm relatively
certain methane is a byproduct of large concentrations of
liquid manure being captured by large dairy operations
and left to ruminate in large tanks. The manure is
generally spread by pivot irrigation systems. The manure
can have a terrible odor.
But the idea of taxing dairy farms and cattle ranchers
for the methane their animals produce seems ludicrous to
me. If methane is a problem in the atmosphere, I suspect
that a relatively small amount comes from cattle.
If global warming is a problem, I think the government
should start by looking first at the main producers of
greenhouse gases the autos and trucks we drive. The
auto manufacturing industry in this country should
have begun manufacturing more fuel efficient cars and
trucks years ago and the government should have been
providing tax incentives to develop vehicles that produce
no greenhouse gases.
It does seem comical to me that EPA would choose
to begin regulating the gas produced by belching farm
animals rather than working with Congress on a more
practical solution to changing the engineering and the
infrastructure for cars and trucks the main culprits in
global warming.


If beef and dairy animals, and hogs, too, are belching
too much methane into the air, I'm sure the agricultural
universities in this country can develop chemicals the
Pepcid AC for cows -- that could reduce belching. I'm
almost serious about that. Or better yet, the universities
can channel the millions they receive in research dollars
into contriving ways to harness animal methane for
production of electricity. Methane does bum. Large
dairy and cattle operations could sell electricity to power
companies.
The main ingredient in natural gas is methane. The
methane in natural gas is produced by decaying plant
material under the earth. Natural gas can be used to power
vehicles and homes. It's a common fuel ;in the United
States. Many electrical generating plants burn natural gas.
I think Congress needs to get off its royal backside
next year and work with the new president on ways to
harness methane as an alternative energy source rather
than tax it and drive our farmers out of business. The new
administration of President-elect Barack Obama will have
an opportunity to show it can operate more intelligently
than the former administration when it rejects this tax and
begins to look at ways of harvesting methane as a new
energy source.*
I think it's humorous to think of a herd of cattle
standing in a field in Levy County as being a source of
global warming. Aren't we taking this whole concept to
a new extreme? I think these global warming scientists
have their heads stuck in a test tube. They need to get a
breath of fresh air.
Not all scientists agree on whether global warming
is real. I called a meteorologist (weather forecaster) last
year from the National Weather Service to ask about a
hurricane forecast. While I had him on the phone, I told
him I knew global warming was a sensitive issue among
weather scientists like him. But just between you and me,
I told him, do you believe global warming is real?
The meteorologist at the other end of the line declined
to walk out on the limb and begin sawing on the
theoretical branch I was asking him to stand on, but what
he did say was that regardless of whether global warming
is real or not, we should make an effort to remove
pollutants from the atmosphere. If we eliminate global
warming in the process of cleaning the air we breathe, he
said, so much the better.
. I liked his thoughtful approach. It wasn't radical. It
wasn't emotional. We do need to clean up air pollution.
Greenhouse gases are a form of pollution to be sure.
But let's take a common sense approach to attacking
greenhouse gas pollution. We need an approach that
protects people economically while we clean the air we
breathe.


It has come to my attention in recent news concerning
the strict enforcement of the due dates on Central Florida
Coop electric bills. This issue is effecting a large number
of people in the tri county area.
This matter is especially stressful to persons struggling
to survive on limited incomes who are paid monthly, such
as the elderly on social security and those surviving on
disability. People with medical conditions are requesting
medical excuses to avoid being without power to operate
essential life saving medical equipment. This not only
puts a burden on people and medical services but requires
bookkeeping to insure compliance by the power company.
Central Florida Electric Coop has a monopoly on
providing electric service and its customers are captive
recipients. Is sending out all these notices and rigid


enforcement of the due dates easier than providing a
more convenient due date for customers that need this
accommodation?
I feel that elderly persons and those on limited
incomes are challenged enough just to survive. Due
dates are not engraved in stone. I feel that CFEC can and
should take into consideration the impact their recent
enforcement is having on so many people and should
take action to resolve the problem. During these times of
unemployment, the gasoline crisis and a trouble economy
this major utility company and their sudden policy
enforcement contributes to the current public problems.

Assistant Editor

Two weeks ago, we rummaged
through our archives to bring you
the Levy County news of Dec. 28,
1933,. as published in the Levy
County Journal.
This week we decided the
paper from 75 years ago is just
too brittle to try to handle, so we
pulled down the box from 50 years
ago, Jan. 8, 1959. This paper has
almost the same layout to it and is
still yellowed with age but not as
fragile as 1933 's paper The editor/
publisher duties were taken on by
Elton Cobb.
Some of the main headlines are
still significant and affect us to this
day:

Chiefland Nursery To
Be Dedicated For M. D.
Andrews Jan. 16th: The
FloridaForest Service nursery
at Chiefland will be formally
dedicated to the memory of
the late M.D. (Six) Andrews,
former President of the
Florida Board of Forestry, at
a ceremony January 16, the
Florida Board of Forestry
announced today.


The 150-acre Chiefland nursery is the newest of'
three North Florida nurseries producing slash pine
seedlings. Established in the spring of 1958, its
capacity is normally 50 million seedlings a year. The
195t8-59 seedling crop is estimated at 60 million.
In inviting friends and relatives of Mr. Andrews
to the ceremony, Board president Frank M. Parker
stated that it was "the desire of the Florida Board of
Forestry to pay appropriate tribute to a former board
member whose interest and service in forestry were
outstanding. '
Taking pan in die ceremony willbet-Mr. Parker,
who will make the dedication; L. W. Drummond,
president of the Levy County State Bank in Chiefland;
R. C. Brent, vice-president of St. Joe Paper Company
and former president of the Board of Forestry; Sam
T. Dell, Jr., Chairman of the Florida Development
Commission; State Senator Randolph Hodges of
Cedar Key and Rev. Don Padgett, Chiefland Methodist
Church.
A:D. Andrews, owner of A.D. Andrews Nursery .and
publisher of the Levy County Journal is the son of M.D.
Andrews. The M.D. Andrews Nursery, is still in operation
on Alt. 27 on the way to Bronson.

Tuesday"
It seems "Yearty" has been a well-known name in
local government for decades. At a Board of County
Commissioners meeting in early January of 1959, John
Yearty of District No. 3 replaced Pete Baylor as Chairman
and Wardell Fugate, District No. 5 replaced Yearty as Vice-
Chairman.
This headline being revisited 50 years later gives cause
to wonder if 50 years from now, someone will pull down
the paper from 2008 and see that another Yearty is in the
headlines but this time for being: indicted on charges of
bribery. r,, -nr

Another big news item was announced under the headline
"Mrs. Nona Howard to Head March of Dimes in Levy
County."
In 2008, March of Dimes changed its WalkAmerica
fundraiser name to March for Babies. Before 1959, the March
of Dimes organization was a polio fighting organization.
The Journal announced the organization would expand
"into a broad new force that will tackle health problems on
a wider front and no longer will confine its activities to a
single disease. Initial new goals include arthritis and birth
defects (congenital malformations)."
Now that polio is no longer a problem, the March of
Dimes has once again adopted its one-health-problem focus,
this time centering on the health of babies.

"License Tags Now On Sale Says Tax Collector

"Seedlings Are Still Available From State Nurseries"
"Funeral Services For Call Rowe Swilley, 62, Held

5'Levy Voters Must Re-register This Year In Order To

Every week Mr. Norwood F. Ishie wrote a slice of life
column called "Around Levy County." On Jan. 8, 1959, he
had oysters on the mind. He told a story about two, meq who
loved to go down to. the oyster bars acropsul ,klammock
and eat them raw right off the bed. .
One day, the two men were at the oyster bed cracking and
eating, when one ofthe menholds up an extra large oyster to
his friend and asks if he could swallow it whole.
The friend said, "Shore I can. Ain't never seen an oyster
I couldn't swallow whole. Let me have it."
The oyster is handed over and the man swallows it
Without a problem.
His friend looks at him in amazement and said, "I tried to
swallow that oyster three times and couldn't do it."
Needless to say the other man had all the oysters he
wanted "so the story goes."

By looking back through the pages of our county paper,
we, take a step back in time almost like a time machine.
Even if you were alive in' 1959, times have changed so
drastically that reading about it may be like revisiting an old
friend and remembering good times gone by. The newspaper
wasn't (and isn t still) just about hard news stories. We learn
history by reading about people's attitudes and what they
were like in stories like Mr Ishie's tale of the unswallowable
oyster Like Elbert Hubbard said in The Roycroft Dictionary,
"History: gossip well told."

Springs welcome manatees for winter

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Natural springs and
the Suwannee River make
the Levy County area an
aquatic paradise. Millions
of animals survive in this
special ecosystem. With its
impressive size, unimposing
presence and gentle nature,
the Florida Manatee is one
such creature that calls this
area home.
Considered an
endangered species for
decades, the sighting
of a manatee is usually
considered a rare
occurrence, but during the
winter months these warm-
blooded creatures seek A mother and her calf con
refuge in the constant 72- must come to-the surface
degree springs, the cold winter months. (

Manatee Awareness Month
Manatee Springs State Park, looking to assist its
namesake, has dedicated January as Manatee Awareness
Month. Between the months of December and March, the
spring's run, where the spring meets the river, is closed to
kayaks and canoes, said park ranger and events coordinator
Renee Waldo. Once the river drops to 68 degrees, manatees
make their way to the run and sometimes spend the night
in the actual spring to stay warm.
To increase knowledge about the manatees, the park
has arranged activities and experts each Saturday of the
month. On Saturday, Doug and Deb Brown, who have been
members of the Save the Manatee Club since 1988, set up
shop and educated springs visitors on the importance of
the "sea cow."


Everything works together in our ecosystem, Deb said.
The manatee is like a canary in a mine, she said. The
canaries, which are sensitive to methane and carbon
monoxide, were used to alert miners when the air was filled
with the dangerous gases. The manatee needs fresh water
and so do humans. If the manatee is doing well, it means
the-environment is doing well and man is doing well.
The Save the Manatee Club was established in 1981
by Jimmy Buffet and former governor Bob Graham so
that the public could get involved with helping to save
the manatee from extinction. Membership requires the
adoption of a manatee, $25 per year, but adoption is not
the only way the -club is involved. They also help with
rescue and rehabilitation, provide assistance in federal
and state research programs, are part of the U.S. Manatee
Recovery Team, provide speakers (like Doug and Deb) and
information for educational purposes, and more.
On Saturday, Doug and Deb handed out fliers and
information, presented a slide show and sold plush manatee

This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the park rangers
at Manatee Springs will host a musical reading of "I Am
a Manatee," a book by John Lithgow. Each park visitor
during that time will also have the opportunity to make a
stuffed manatee toy.
On Jan. 17, Amy Teague from the Sirenia Project, a
project from the U.S. Geological Survey for manatee
ecology and population biology, will have a program at
the river pavilion at Manatee Springs. The program will
include children's games on how to identify a manatee.
On Jan. 24, the park will have a presenter from the
Chassahowitzka National Wildlife Refuge. They will
bring a dark room theater to show pictures from manatee
rescues. They will also provide information on how rescues
are made and new technology that is coming out to aid in
manatee protection.

Daniels from the Florida

will bring his special flats

Each event is free with

The Manatee
In 2007 there were
1,817 manatees recorded
in Florida, based on the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute's
synoptic aerial surveys.
These gentle giants grow
to an average of 10 feet in
length and weigh between
900 to 1,200 pounds.
Manatees are warm-blooded marine mammals, and
therefore are required to surface in order to breathe
every three to five minutes. The calves, which stay with
their mother for about a yeai after birth, surface more
frequently.
I The manatee's closest relative is the elephant, although
they act more like a cow, grazing for vegetation and with a
gentle nature, hence the nickname "sea cow," Waldo said.
An adult manatee eats about 10 to 15 percent of its weight
in seagrass and other vegetation every day, according to
the commission. That can equal up to 180 pounds of food
for a 1,200 pound-animal.
Manatees have no natural enemies, but because they
are slow moving, must surface for air and prefer to eat
in shallow areas, they are more vulnerable to watercraft
collisions, according to Save the Manatee Club.
Most people think manatees are killed by boat propellers,
Manatee Springs Park Ranger Waldo said. While that is
a problem and most manatees are identified by the scars
made by propellers, the manatee's main mortality threat
by boats is being struck by the hull. Despite popular belief,
the manatee is not a fatty animal.. Their spines are located
about an inch below the skin along the back. When a
manatee is struck by a boat, there is a chance its ribs, which
arch upward to allow the lungs to be positioned high along
the spine, will puncture the lungs causing the animal to die,
Waldo said.
In 2008, there were 337 recorded manatee deaths in
Florida. Watercraft accounted for 90 deaths, or about 27
percent of manatee mortality, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission. Cold stress accounted
for 25 deaths, or about 13 percent. The leading cause of
manatee death was perinatal, or newborn, at 101 deaths,
about 30 percent.

Whether you're taking a walk on the boardwalk along
the spring's run at Manatee Springs or you're out on the
river, make sure you look out for the gentle creatures that
Christopher Columbus, upon first seeing a manatee in the
New World in 1493, believed to be mermaids.


Deb and Doug Brown, members of save tne Manatee
Club, at Manatee Springs State Park Saturday
to educate park visitors of the importance of the
manatee. (Anna Suggs)

Williston survives stubborn Indians, 58-48


Late 3-pointers clinch victory for Red Devils


Williston's Jacques Edwards dribbles past Stephen Davis of Chiefland Tuesday at
Williston. The Red 'Devils pulled away late in the fourth quarter to win.


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

Paul King hit two 3-point shots minutes
apart in the fourth quarter Tuesday as Williston
overcame a stubborn Chiefland team. 58-48.
Williston trailed,41-40 with six minutes
left when King connected on an arching shot
from the left side. Moments later, with the Red
Devils ahead 45-44, King hit another, this time
from the right side. The 5'6" sophomore added
two free throws down the stretch as Williston
improved to 11-4 on the season.
King's heroics spoiled an otherwise.
impressive night for Chiefland (8-6), which
pestered the third-ranked Red. Devils all,
evening. In fact, the Indians stayed within
striking distance virtually all game thanks to
the play of Eugene Carter, who led all scorers
with 18 points, and Cantrell Richardson, who
scored 16 and grabbed double-digit rebounds.
But Williston got scoring from eight
different players in the game, including 15,
from junior Isaac Floyd. Floyd banked in a 3-
pointer with seconds left in the third period to
put his team up 39-36. The Red Devils would
also get nine from Jacques Edwards, who
'added a 3-point shot with a minute and a half
left in the game..
Despite the victory, Williston Head Coach


David Vespignani was fully convinced his
team could have and should have played
better.
"We just are not a very good team right
now," he said. "I would love to put it another
way and sugar coat it, but we are just not
very good right now. We need guys who are
very capable to play up to their capabilities,
and right now we are not getting that out of
enough of them."
Williston managed an early 12-6 lead
behind Michael Solomon, who scored an
inside basket off an offensive rebound, and
another moments later on a pass from Deonte
Welch. Two shots by Edwards -'a 3-pointer
and a layup closed out the 'Williston first
quarter scoring to make it 19-13 Red Devils.
, But Chiefland would not go away.
Richardson opened the second quarter with
a short basket, and Carter followed with a
10-footer to get their team to within 19- 17.
Williston scored the next seven to go up 26-
17, but Chiefland countered with a 9-0 run to
tie the game at 26 with a minute left in the half.
Chiefland Head Coach Mark Lundy was
encouraged by his team's effort.
"I really felt good in the third period," he
said. "We had some opportunities late that
we should have capitalized on, but they are a
good team. I am proud of our guys."


Chiefland varsity boys win close game wth Bronson


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Chiefland varsity. boys' basketball team
defeated Bronson High School 49-45 Saturday in a
hard- fought defensive battle that came down to free
throws in the final three seconds.
Bronson made a run in the fourth quarter, chipping
away at Chiefland's 33-21 lead going, into the third
period with a defense that forced turnovers.
The Eagles' Kelby Barber drove to the basket
and scored with 3.4 seconds left, closing Chiefland's
lead to 46-45.
Bronson Coach Aaron Haldeman called time out.
When he had set his defense and sent the team out on
the court, Chiefland Coach Mark Lundy called time
to reset his players. It was a chess match of sorts on
the basketball court.
On the inbound pass that followed, Barber was
forced to foul .immediately. Chiefland's Eugene
Carter went to the line and hit 1 of 2 free throws to
expand Chiefland's lead to 47-45. Bronson grabbed
the rebound on the missed free throw, but was called
for a foul.
With two-tenths of a second left in the game,
Chiefland's Steven Davis sank 2 free throws under
heavy game pressure, increasing the Indians' lead to
49-45. The crowd on both sides of the gymnasium
was frantic by then. The gym was rocking.
But time had run out for the Eagles.
Bronson had no hope of scoring 4 points. Chiefland
players knew it.
Lundy was beyond happy when the final buzzer
sounded.


His team had won on free throws, a part of the
game that the Indians haven't always excelled at,
according to Lundy. But in a fierce cross country
rivalry game, the Indians had made 3 free throws
when it counted most.
"We knew they were going to make a run," Lundy
said. "Those kids are good ball players. But our kids
battled and we came out with the win."
Lundy said it had been a defensive fight from the
start of the game. Neither team was willing to give
ground. Chiefland outscored Bronsonin the first two.
periods, but Bronson outscored Chiefland in both
periods of the second half.
Lundy said his team looked fundamentally sound
throughout the game. The Indians did a good job of
finding shooters with crisp inside passes. Chiefland's
Cantrell Carter was particularly adept at passing to
the open man when Bronson bottled him up under
the boards.:
Lundy said finding the open man made difference
,in a close game.
"I don't need any credit for this win," Lundy said.
The credit goes to. those kids., They have worked
hard'for four years. They deserved the win."
Bronson Coach Aaron Haldeman commended
his team for battling. He said he believes they could
have won if they had they played the entire game
like the last four minutes.
"It was a close one. It's a bummer, but you learn
from it," Haldeman said. "Chiefland played hard.
They were physical. They were quick. We just came
out flat."

A strong fourth quarter lifted the Chiefland High
School varsity girls to a 46-39 win over Bronson
Saturday night.
The game was close, and there was plenty of
contact.
Chiefland's lead narrowed to 34-32 as the
third period ended and disappeared entirely when
Bronson's Liz Gray tied the score at 36-36 with 6:50
to go in the fourth.
But the Lady Indians took advantage of Bronson
turnovers and missed shots in the final five minutes
to take back the lead, and expand it.
Bronson was unable to use its size advantage to
score points. Kneisha Means and Liz Gray were
dominant on the boards, but the'Lady Eagles were
unable to convert rebounds into points. Gray led
Bronson in scoring with 12 points. ,
Chiefland Coach Emily Gore complimented her
young team on winning their second game of the
season. She fielded a freshman and two sophomores


as part of her starting five for a portion of the game.
"I told my girls overall we did some good things,"
she said.
Charlene Davis led Chiefland in scoring with 13
while Madalyn McGray had 11.
Gore said Chiefland's half court press disrupted
Bronson's offense and led to turnovers and points.
"They were really getting after it," Gore said. "I
definitely saw spunk out of some of them."
She said the Christmas break helped her team.
They needed time off.
But she said the Lady Indians are in a learning
mode.
"We're still young," she said.

with 16 points each while Chiefland's Marquis Green and
Trent Perryman lead their team with 13 points each.
Bronson Coach Kenny Thomas said his 7-2 team turned
in a good offensive and defensive performance.
"Defense turned into good offense and we trapped
well," Thomas said. "We were able to get scoring when
they turned the ball over."
Bronson has seven or eight freshmen on the team who
were playing middle school ball last year. Thomas said they
are learning to play at the next level. He said the players
are faster and more talented at the JV level. The young
Eagles are learning to adapt.
He was proud of their performance. "I was proud of the
team. They were ready. I have to give them credit for that."

What does the


future hold for

Florida hunters?

By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife Association

To start the new year
off, I'd like to tell you
about a recent Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation "
Commission (FWC)
report titled "Wildlife
2060: What's at stake for
Florida?" The report is
based on a study by 1000
Friends of Florida a
nonprofit organization that
monitors our state's growth,
and it contains some pretty 2
alarming things we hunters
need to be aware of.
Florida has the fourth-highest population in
the country at 18 million,, and this report predicts
that by the year 2060, it will double to 36 million.
Consequently, estimates are that 7 milliorinof the
state's 34 million total acres will be converted from
natural and rural lands to urban uses during the next
50 years. Seven million acres is equivalent to the
entire state of Vermont.
Black bear and wild turkey habitats may decrease
by 2 million acres by 2060. And for Florida's more
than 200,000 deer hunters,, this estimated loss of 2.7
million acres of native habitat could result in 62,790
fewer deer in Florida. On top of that, as much as
25 percent of the private lands that provide most of
the hunting leases could disappear by 2060 due to
development.
Leasing private land for hunting costs a statewide
average ofaround $15 an acre today. That figure
could soar to about $300 an acre by 2060!
Florida boasts one of the largest wildlife
management area systems in the country at almost 6
million acres, but what's going to happen to it in 50
years? It will undoubtedly shrink from the pressures '
put on it by encroaching development. Many of
Florida's 50,000 public-land hunters already feel the
squeeze and complain of areas being overcrowded.
How crowded are they going to be when our
population doubles?
So what can we do about it? This state simply
can't afford to buy all the land that needs protecting,
but it can assist property owners who own "key"
wildlife habitats by helping them manage these lands
and by creating financial incentives to help protect
and keep these native lands wild.
One thing residents already are doing is creating
new taxes to preserve important local ecosystems.
Since 1972, 30 Florida counties have voted to tax
themselves in the form of real estate "doc stamps,"
and that has generated more than $2 billion to
purchase nearly 375,000 acres of conservation lands.
And it's important which tracts of land are
priorities to buy and put into conservation. We need
communities separated by green spaces in the form
of woods, swamps and farmlands that will support
wildlife.
We must minimize the effects of habitat
fragmentation by making sure large areas of
conservation lands and wetlands stay connected to
other natural landscapes. The report estimates that
2 million of the 7 million acres projected to be lost
to development by 2060 lie within a mile of existing
public conservation lands. If this happens, it will
create "islands" of natural habitat that will isolate
wildlife populations from each other. This will really
have a negative impact on species that require vast
tracts of undisturbed land to survive.
Fragmentation also will make prescribed burning,
a management technique essential for maintaining
quality wildlife habitat, even more difficult.
But by using smart-growth initiatives and
planning, 'we can encourage development that is
environmentally sensitive, instead of allowing
haphazard urban sprawl to occur.
Proactive strategies are best adopted at the local
level and include acquiring and protecting large
parcels of conservation lands, promoting compatible
agriculture, like cattle ranches and timber farms
(because they provide wildlife habitat), developing
conservation easements, creating tax incentives and


managing the growing development with large-scale,
land-use planning in mind.
You can get involved in advocating for wise
land-use decisions in your community to minimize
negative impacts to wildlife. You can ask whether
your city or county has a local land-acquisition
program. Are the roads there being designed and

situated to accommodate wildlife? Does
your community view conserving its
green infrastructure and wetlands with the
same inmportance as maintaining its roads,
buildings and bridges? And are you,
yourself, conserving wildlife habitat on
your own property?
To view "Wildlife 2060: What's at

We might not be able to slow down
growth in our state, but I encourage you
to join the FWC and other organizations
working together to find solutions to make
a brighter future for our wildlife and the
future of hunting here.

Flat tire fiasco


Out with the old. In with the new.
There's gonna be a lot of that going on in
a few weeks. After having just come from
the auto repair shop for the 20 millionth
time since we moved here, I wish a little
of it would happen at my house, no offense
beautiful periwinkle Toyota. I know
cars can't read but better safe than sorry.
.(Roaclhes can't read, eitherfbut ,never see
any when my can of Raid .is in plain' view
on the kitchen counter.) I tried extremely
hard not to offend my little blue Datsun
years ago, also.
One memorable excursion involving
her was on Thanksgiving Eve, late, when
all good car shops in America are closed.
My then boyfriend and I were going from
Tallahassee to Augusta to spend Turkey Day
with my family (actually so he could meet
some more of said turkeys in my family).
We left after work with an ETA of
around midnight. Well, around 10, we
heard a pop and then felt a decided jolt as
the right rear tire blew up. We pulled onto
the not-so-safe shoulder and surveyed the
situation with my three-inch-long flashlight
that I kept in the glove box for just such
an emergency. It was better than lighting
a match only because it didn't burn your
fingers. Anyway, when asked if I had a
spare, I replied, "Of course," in my best
know-it-all manner.
I did have a spare, but, of course, it was
flat, also. Some choice words followed this
discovery. And then panic began to set in.
We were just outside of the little town of
Wrightsville, Ga., and it was DARK. We
could see nothing and this was way before
cell phones were attached to our bodies.
We -had seen a shack across the road
from us a short ways back, so my husband-
to-be trekked back there, returning with an
elderly African-American gentleman in his
also elderly Ford Granada. He graciously


offered to take all three of us to town,
the third party being my Westie Terrier,
a ferocious spitfire of a dog who did, not
like strangers and made no bones about
it. Upon entering the car and seeing the
shotgun on the front seat, the "I love Jesus"
air freshener, coupled with the faint aroma
of Jack Daniels, even my ever-vocal canine
was .silenced.
Now, Wrightsville is famous for the
birth of two people: Herschel Walker and
my mother. Herschel wasn't around to
help us that night so it was going to have
to be Mother. She had cousins all over the
place, one of whom was named Andrew
Hall and just happened to own a body shop,
not the corpse kind, you understand. Well,
our rescuer said "I knows Andrew Hall
reeeeeal well!" and drove us in to town to a
phone booth to call him. When he arrived,
we turned to thank our lifesaver but hewas
gone. Odd, we thought.
Well, Cousin Andrew didn't have tires
at his shop but not to worry. He deposited
us at his house, called a buddy, and set off
in search of some new treads for us. We
never knew how he procured them that late
at night, but he did, and I think maybe it's
better that we didn't know. He fixed us up
and sent us on our way, commenting that he
had never heard of the elderly gentleman
who claimed to know him so well.
On our return trip home, mercifully in
broad daylight, we attempted to locate our
deliverer. Some .of you probably know
where this is heading. The place was
boarded up, obviously unlived in for a
number of years, no Granada or driver in
sight. I have no clue; just know that I'm
thankful for that old car with its Heavenly
old driver who knew my cousin "reeeeeal
well!"

ARE YOU READY TO TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH?


Huge crowds waited anxiously out in the fields. Dozens
of world dignitaries had assembled along this dusty old
Mississippi turn row. The President himself was standing
to salute as I rode a wheelie past him on my
new Honda XR75 motorcycle.
Never before had such an event taken ,

by the grain bins the reporters crowd Mss -
America for her comments.
"Don't do it, Guy," she pleaded and
wiped a tear from her eye. It was too late. I .
had already found the plywood to make the
take-offramp.
Shortly thereafter I was rolling a 55-gallon .
drum out of the barn when my little brother But Anyw
Heath pierced my daydream. with Gu
"Wha'cha doing?" he asked with his big
snaggle-toothed grin.
Angered at suddenly being snapped back to reality I
shouted, "Get outta' here, punk!" Then I pretended to lunge
at him. He fell back. I could do that then. I was 13 and he
was 7.
As usual, he popped up quicker than a Bobo punching
bag and asked, "Can I help?"
"You might as well," I fumed, "Miss America's done
gone now!"
As great daredevils are apt to do, I made some last-minute
ramp adjustments. I took a few dry test runs to carefully
calculate the precise speed I would need to clear the barrel.,
Finally, when I could think of no other suspense builders, I
readied for my approach.
This was the moment the world had waited for. I flipped
the lid down on my helmet and gave one last wave to the

crowd. Heath waved back. I revved that poor little engine
for all it was worth, and then puttered off carefully.
I must've been topping out at over 10 mph when I hit that
ramp. I made it all the way to the top actually
cleared the barrel somehow. Sliding to a stop I
let the dust clear, threw the bike over, and stood
there ,with, both arms raised basking in the
glow came rushing over.
Heath came rushing over. "I'm his hero," I

thought.
"My turn... My turn..." He cried.
The day wore on, and after I'd gotten 20 or 30
jumps under my belt, I finally decided to give in
to Heath's constant badgering. I figured I could
use a little more suspense, and he'd obviously
not been listening to my belittling anyhow.


However, I was extremely concerned for his
safety, (not to mention my own distance records), so I gave
him strict orders to stay in first gear. After putting a good
scaring into him I gave him the helmet.
The first indication he hadn't been listening was when he
went plum around front of the house to start his approach. I
couldn't see him, but then I heard him coming; cranking it
down and winding it out every gear. He blazed around the
comer doing at least 50. I was screaming and flagging my
arms wildly, but he only had one thing on his mind, and he
hit that ramp as fast as that Honda would go.
I'm not sure what the world motorcycle jumping record
is, but I can tell you, I was the lone witness to it that day.
Heath was probably still on the way up when he set it!
He jumped clean over the whole back yard and landed
with a thud just short of the cotton fields.
He was a tough little fellow, though, because somehow he
managed to hold on, although his legs were flapping along
behind like sheets in the wind, and that knobby back tire was
working his business over something fierce.
Heath zoomed into those freshly plowed rows at full
speed, each bump causing him to goose the throttle more.

Guy (left) with his brother Heath (right) when they
were boys.
He was halfway across the field before he finally bogged
down. By the time I got there, he was back on his feet. He
forced a muddy half grin and muttered, "Your turn."
I guess you could say little Heath had been so anxious to
mount up with wings like eagles that he'd forgotten to wait
upon the Lord!
That can sure make for some bumpy landings, especially
with regard to sharing your Christian faith. I should know. I
still hear from a host of family members who like to testify
how my initial approach came in just a little too fast right
after I got saved.
However, there's a ditch on both sides of the road, you
know. We can't just sit around calculating and procrastinating
either. If we're waiting on the ramp to be set up perfectly,
we'll probably never jump.
As Christians we must be willing to flip the lid down on
our helmet of salvation and pop the clutch when the Lord
gives us the nod. Just remember, though, without the Holy
Spirit in your witnessing, you're just flying off into left
field.
But anyway Lift up your eyes and remember those
huge crowds; the ones cheering for you from above, and
those who are in the fields white to harvest. Don't be scared
to make that great leap of faith. Instead, you must worship
Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your
Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. 1 Peter 3:15

BEDTIME STORIES
(Running time: 95 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring Adam Sandier, Keri Russeell

Adam Sandier finally makes a movie I really like! Bedtime
Stories is sweet and clever. The- stories within a story are
Amusing little adventures. The main plot is a little grown-
up, but younger children who don't completely understand
What is going on will be content with the special effects,
the adorable children and the fairytale aspect of Bedtime
Stories.
A little grown-up, a little bit of violence and a few bad
Swords or images still don't keep this movie from being
OK for kids 9 and' up. It's enjoyable for adults, too. And no
Bathroom humor!


MARLEY & ME
(Running time:. 120 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring Owen Wilson, Jennifer Anniston


Contrary to the commercials advertising Marley and Me,
'this is not just a hilarious, goofy dog movie. It is actually a
fairly serious movie about adults and grown-up issues, like
careers, miscarriage, decisions about children and marriage.
While I loved Marley and Me, it is really not for younger
children as the ending is incredibly sad. A young girl left the
theater before the movie was over because she was sobbing.
/ Marley and Me is best for children 10 and up who can stand
the loss of a friend.

YES MAN
(Running time: 104 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel, Bradley Cooper

I am not a fan of Jim Carrey, but in Yes Man he plays it
straighter than usual with less of his grimacing and hamming
it up that drives me crazy.'I'm not sure why this story is
PG-13. There is some bad language in Yes Man and a bare
behind at the end but no sex or violence.
SThe story of a man who is afraid of life, coming out
of his shell and being enriched by his new experience of
saying "yes" to everything that comes his way is original,
refreshing and funny. I enjoyed the positive message and
attitude during this season with so many sad or depressing
movies. Yes Man is a real "up" experience. With no sex,
some bad language and no violence, Yes Man should be fine
for kids 10 and up and adults, too.

10VIE CHOICES FOR Kl
Here are my top and bottom 10 lists for 2008 movies:

TOP TEN 2008 MOVIES
For Kids 12 and Under
1. Horton Hears a Who Dr. Seuss still rules. He's
unbeatable!
2. Spiderwick Chronicles Wonderful adventure live-
action/animation mix.
3. High School Musical 2: Senior Year For sheer
exuberance and gorgeous music and dancing!
4. Igor For originality and humor.
5. Forbidden Kingdom Jackie Chan and Jet Li in one
spectacular movie.
6. Fly Me to the Moon Another original, funny,
historical tale.
7. Kung Fu Panda So much heart and greal
messages.
8. The Long Shots -Another inspirational story.
9. The chronicles of Namia: Prince Caspian: A greal
story and continuing saga.
10. Space Chimps So cute and mixes science, history
and humor.

For Kids 12 and older
1. The Dark Knight An amazing movie, dark,
riveting, surprising, moving
2. Mamma Mia -An incredibly joyful noise!
3. Iron Man Brilliant and engrossing
4. Be Kind, Rewind Makes you laugh hysterically
and cry soulfully.
5. High School Musical 2: Senior Year Joy, joy, joy'!
6. Eagle Eye/The Express Tie Wildly exciting (#1)


and totally inspiring (#2)
7. Wall-E Original,
funny, pointed as
only Pixar can

8. The Mummy:
Tomb of the Dragon
Emperor Rousing,
fun adventure.
9. The Sisterhood
of the Traveling.
Pants 2 Another
good episode in the
series.
10. Indiana Jones and
the Kingdom of the
Crystal Skull He's


back and still smoking !


WORST TEN MOVIES


1. Lakeland Terrace The most mean-spirited movie
in decades!
2. Drillbit Taylor There aren't words bad enough for
this wasted movie, bad writing, acting, messages
waste of film.
3.. Henry Poole is Here pointless, meaningless, long,
slow and boring
4. Jumper Stupid, silly and superficial. No one
cares!
5. The Spartans slow, silly, stupid/Disaster Movie
t also slow, silly and stupid.
6. Don't Mess with Zohan and don't see this movie,
either. Just Adam Sandler showing off and being
gross for his friends again. (see Bedtime Stories
his best movie in years)
7. The Love, Guru When will Mike Myers give up
these silly, gross characters and just go away?
8. The Incredible Hulk terrible messages and
ridiculous premise.
9. Vantage Point See the same scenes eight times and
you'll head for the door, too!
10. Cloverfield I got dizzy with the hand-held camera
and annoyed that I couldn't see what was going on.

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

SBronsonHigh School beat the Lafayette County Hornets'
varsity boys' basketball team Friday 65-43 in Mayo.
The game was close through most of the first halfbefore a*
3-point bucket by Kelby Barber, a free throw from Enrique
Wiseman, and a charge taken by Rudolfo Contreras lit the
Eagles on fire before the end of the second period.
The Eagles were carrying a 42-28 lead that was slowly
expanding by the fourth period. Early in the fourth the lead
ballooned to 63-40. Coach Aaron Haldeman began freely
substituting his younger players.
Haldeman felt the game Was a good tune up for the
Chiefland game the next night.
James Rivers led Bronson with 23 points. Haldemain's
stat keeper wasn't available, but Haldeman estimated
Rivers was close to a triple double at Mayo.
Enrique Wiseman dominated the boards on both ends
of the court. Lafayette County could not keep him off the
boards.
"That's what I expect out of Enrique," Haldeman said.
"He's capable of playing that way every night."
Haldeman said the game was a good example of how
well Bronson can play offense and defense and "how much
fun it is when they see it work."
Bronson used its defense to generate offense. Defensive
takeaways and steals led to fast break baskets for the
Eagles. Defensive rebounds also led to fast break baskets.
Scoring:
Bronson James Rivers 23, Enrique Wiseman 12,
Kelby Barber 12, Rudolfo Contreras 6, C.J. King 4, Marvin
Walker 2, ThomasMitchem 2. Scoring by periods 12-15-

dominant under the basket.


Indians, from Page 1A
Haldeman said he believes his team learned how good they were
in the game, but their main mistake was starting slow, something
they have done throughout the year. They build intensity as the game
progresses.
The Bronson coach said his team needs to start games with the type
of fierce determination they showed in the final four minutes when they
forced turnovers and takeaways from an experienced Chiefland team.
Scoring:
Chiefland -- Tommy Sheffield 6, Steven Davis 8, Eugene Carter 9,
Cantrell Richardson 13, Reggie McClendon 3, Marquis Jackson 2 and
Donnel Sanders 8. Scoring by periods, 7-4-13-21 45.
Bronson Virgil Greenlee 8, Kelby Barber 5, Zach Hamilton 3, C.J.
King 11, Rudolfo Contreras. 1, Enrique Wiseman 7, James Rivers 10.
Scoring by periods, 12-8-11-18.
