Williston-council tables fire cost recovery law


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A proposed Williston ordinance that would have allowed the city to
recover the cost of fighting fires was put on hold last week after questions
were raised by city council members.
Council members voted to table the ordinance.
The ordinance was aimed atrecovering the costs incurred by the fire
department when it fights structure fires or arson fires inside or outside
the city.
Most homeowner insurance policies provide coverage for payment of
costs incurred by the insured for services rendered by fire departments
at structure fires, the ordinance said.
But some council members wondered if the city would be sending
the victims of fires a bill for city fire services.


"Are we going to send a bill to everyone regardless of whether they have
insurance?" asked Council President Debra Jones.
She said the ordinance didn't say whether people with no insurance, or
whose insurance didn't cover the city's costs, would be billed.
Councilman Marc Nussel said residents already are paying for fire
protection through their taxes.
"Are we going to double charge them?" he said. 4
City Attorney Norm Fugate said he didn't believe the city. had authority
to assess for fires occurring outside the city,
Residents outside the city already pay a county fire tax. The city provides
the fire services for unincorporated areas outside the city.
The proposed ordinance said all persons who hold a property interest
in any building, dwelling or other structure, or its contents that catch fire
See Ordinance, Page 4A


Public events law gets city nod Cedar Key School:


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland city commissioners on
Monday clarified the requirements to obtain
city .approval for events such as carnivals,
circuses, rodeos, temporary car sales and
other public events or gatherings,
Under the revised ordinance, all public
events must be approved by City Manager
Grady Hartzog or city Building and Zoning
Official Bill Hammond before a permit can
be issued.
An application must be submitted to
Hammond not less than 30 days before the
event and not more than 180 days before
the event.
There must be adequate size for the event
and the city will determine if the proposed
location has enough space. The application
must be reviewed by the police chief or a
person he designates.
City officials made the changes to
provide more flexibility for events such
as temporary car sales. Such events were
virtually removed from the mall parking lots
at one point because some merchants felt
they were taking away customer parking,
clogging traffic, flow, and obstructing the
view of businesses in shopping centers.
The new ordinance allows such events
Pt


back in the city, but gives city officials the
discretion to review the application ,and
determine whether the event would be a
problem at the proposed site.
In other business:
N Commissioners honored three of its
employees for their outstanding service to
. the city and their years of service.
Sgt. Jay Bolton, who has been with
the city police department five years, was
honored with a certificate. Police Chief
Robert Douglas said Bolton had the first K-
9 unit in the city and now is in charge of the
K-9 unit, which has two dogs in service.
Douglas said Bolton is an excellent
officer and he has never questioned a
decision Bolton has made. He said it's
difficult to find officers of Bolton's caliber.
He is an asset to the department.
"He's a cop's cop," Douglas-said.
Water Treatment and Distribution trainee
Wally Smith, who has been with the city for.
five years, was honored with a certificate
presented by Shane Keene, water and
facilities manager. Keene said Smith has
done an outstanding job for the city and will
soon take a test to become a licensed Class
3 operator of the water plant.
Hartzog presented Sewer Superintendent
Randy Wilkerson with a certificate.

One of the best
By Claire Brown
Cedar Key School

Cedar Key School was selected as one of the Best
High Schools in America for the second year in a row..
CKS ranked as bronze out of gold, silver, bronze, and
honorable mention. After analyzing 21,069 public high
schools from 48 different states, a three-step process is
done to choose the schools that will be selected as The
Best High Schools in America.
The first step of this process was to see if the
students were performing better than expected of
an average student in their state. The percent of
handicapped students was also examined to see if they
are doing better than average, since they tend to score
a little lower. The schools that get past that first step
move on to the second step.
This step is to see if less advantaged students are
performing better than the average for that category
in their state. When schools made it past the first and
second steps they were eligible to be judged nationally
on the final step, "college readiness performance."
Ms. Sue Ice, CKS Principal, says "I am very proud
that CKS has received this award two years in a row.
It takes the hard work of ouriteachers, students, and
parents in order to achieve this success."


City settles on

areas for sexually

oriented businesses
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Aftqr struggling with the issue for months, Chiefland
City Commissioners Monday approved a map identifying
47 parcels of property in the city where sexually'oriented
businesses could operate, with most of the land being in
the north part of town,
The city map gives city staff members the information
they will need to develop a regulatory ordinance limiting
areas of operation for sexually oriented businesses to the
properties marked in red ink on the map.
One red area on the map is part of White Farms and
the other is behind a Yamaha dealership. The exact parcels
will be identified when the ordinance is developed. These
are areas proposed by city staff because they are zoned
industrial and meet the city's requirements.
Commissioners want to establish buffer zones that
would put distance between a sexually oriented business
and city zoned educational facilities, day care centers,
residential areas, agricultural areas add churches.
The board has had an ordinance on the books for many
years that essentially outlawed sexually oriented businesses
from operating in Chiefland, but U.S. Supreme Court
rulings have rendered the ordinance invalid, according to
City Attorney Norm Fugate.
Commissioners have decided to adopt three replacement
ordinances, one imposing strict licensing requirements, a
second prohibiting alcohol consumption on the premises of
such businesses, and a third limiting where the businesses
can operate.
The land use ordinance limiting potential locations
for the businesses has been the most challenging.
Commissioners were not excited about the prospect of
- having such a business in the'city, but in the absence of a
strict prohibition, they wanted to limit the amount of land
that could be used for clubs that feature nude dancing or
strippers, or shops that sell pornography.

They were forced to compromise when they found
that the amount of light industrial land available for this
purpose was limited. Light industrial is the zoning category
the Planning Commission selected for such businesses.
City commissioners found that limiting the businesses to
industrial zoning and placing a 1000-foot setback around
sensitive areas, didn't leave enough land. *
Commissioners compromised on Monday by approving
a map allowing 1,000-foot setbacks around city zoned
recreational, public, residential, agricultural, educational
areas, day care centers and churches. They agreed to 500
foot setbacks around county designated forestry/rural
residential and agricultural/rural residential zoning in the
newly annexed area.
The map is by no means final. When city staff members
return with the proposed ordinance, the public will have an
opportunity to comment.
The motion to approve the setback map passed 5-0.

Spelling bee produces winner to represent district


Story and photo by
Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Champion. C-H-A-M-P-
I-O-N. Champion.
The morning after the
Gators took home the
national championship
in college football, the
spelling bee winners of
local elementary and middle
schools gathered at the
Levy County School Board.


The contestants give one last smile to their loved ones before the spelling bee began Friday. From left to right: Alexis Reiniger,
Syndey Parks, Trina Tolentino, Richard Ghamandi, Haley Sellers, Camrheron Smith Jr., Caleigh Robinson, Chayene Wilder,
Cassandra Vunk, Ricky Roe, Sarah Martin, and Linda Durrance, the procter.


Eleven students ranging
from fourth-grade to eighth-grade competed Friday for the'
district spelling bee champion title a perfect way to get
ready for. this week's Florida Literacy Week.
After three rounds and dozens of words, a clear winner
emerged.
Linda Durrance, Director of Literacy of the Levy
County School Board, welcomed all students, family and
guests, telling everyone that no matter what the results of
the competition were, each student was already a winner.
Bob Hastings, Levy County School Board
Superintendent, was introduced and spoke a few words of
encouragement to the students.
"The best reward you can ever have is the knowing you
did the best you could," Hastings said.
Before excusing himself to get back to the school budget
crunch he expressed how proud each student should feel
for representing his or her family, community and county
so well.
Durrance took the podium again and explained the
rules of the bee: Each student would be asked to spell a
word. If spelled incorrectly, the student must take a step
back and at the end of the round retake their seats in the
audience. The competition would continue until only one
student remained to spell the championship word. Students
could ask for a word's definition and/or to have it used in
a sentence.


The eleven contestants who won their school's spelling
bee contest and participated in the district competition
were: Caleigh Robinson, fourth-grader from Bronson
Elementary; Richard "Ricky" Roe, seventh-grader from
Bronson Middle School; Sydney Parks, fourth-grader
from Cedar Key School; Sarah Martin, eighth-grader from
Cedar Key School; Trina Joyce Tolentino, fifth-grader from
Chiefland Elementary School; Cassandra L. Vunk, eighth-
grader from Chiefland Middle School; Richard Ghamandi,
fifth-grader from Williston Elementary School; Cammeron
Smith, Jr., sixth-grader from Williston Middle School;
Haley. Sellers, fifth-grader from Yankeetown School;
Alexis Reiniger, seventh-grader from Yankeetown School;
Chayene Wilder, seventh-grader from Nature Coast Middle-
School.
Ricky Roe, a seventh-grader from Bronson Middle
School, breezed through the spelling when his turn came
each round, pausing only once for "canine." As one-by-
one students stepped back after a misspelled word, it was
finally down to two: Ricky and Chiefland Middle School
eighth-grader Cassandra Vunk.
Cassandra was given "gardenia" to spell, but the three-
syllabler proved too difficult.
The tension was high. If Ricky spelled the next word
correctly, he would move on to the championship round.
"Hypothesis" was presented. The parents and family


members paused in the audience as they each mentally
spelled it out.
"Hypothesis. H-Y-P-0-T-H-E-S-I-S. Hypothesis."
It was time for the championship word. If Ricky missed
it, Cassandra was still in the running.
"Kahuna," Durrance said.
Ricky started to repeat the word that could make him a
winner confidently but his pitch turned up at the end, like
a question.
The audience laughed as everyone realized the oddity
of the word.
After quickly recovering from the initial shock, Ricky
launched into the task at hand, leaving more than one
eyebrow raised in surprise.
After being declared the district spelling bee champion,
Ricky admitted he was pretty nervous throughout the
competition but said he knew all the words, with the
exception maybe of "polymer."
His mother, Donna Roe, school resource officer at
Bronson Middle/High School, said Ricky's brother won
the district spelling bee last year and got sixth place in the
regional competition.
"He was really impressed with his brother going to
regionals, and he made it a goal," Roe said.
Ricky will now go on to represent the district at the "Big
Bend" Regional Spelling Bee in Tallahassee Feb. 14.

Assistant Editor

Haven Hospice of the Tri-Counties, which is celebrating
its 30th year, was given a birthday present Jan. 7 that
most 30-year-olds wouldn't mind having a check for
$6,001.27.
Badcock Home Furnishing and More of Chiefland
and Haven Hospice teamed up over the holidays to sell
raffle tickets for a 46-inch Samsung flat-screen TV worth
$1,799.95, donated by Badcock.
The tickets, which were made and donated by The Print
Shop, were $5 each and the drawing was held Dec. 23.
Cindy and A.J. Lairson of Bell had the winning ticket.
This is the third year of the raffle, earning Haven Hospice
a total of $14,600.
Although ticket sales were down from last year, this
year's 'overall earnings, which included donations and
ticket sales, was higher. Last year's collected earnings
were $5,600.
Haven Hospice Administrator Jackie Price said the


money will stay in the Tri-Counties: and allow them to
care for uninsured patients and continmie ith non-funded
programs, like massage therapy.
"It's amazing to me the generosity of our community,"
Price said. "It's tremendous."
Price said Haven Hospice of the Tri-Counties owes
many thanks to its No. 1 volunteer, Harry Coleman, who
seated himself outside of the Super Wal-Mart to sell the
tickets almost every day.
Haven Hospice, an end-of-life care provider, began in
a remodeled elevator shaft at Alachua General Hospital 30
years ago and now employs 550 people in the Tri-Counties,
she said.
Carol Tew, owner of Badcock Home Furnishing in
Chiefland, said she is grateful to be able to help out such a
noble cause.
Tew's husband passed away from cancer just before the
first raffle three years ago. The one time she needed Haven
Hospice, they were there immediately, she said.
"It's not a job for them; it's a calling," she said.


Arbor Day to be celebrated Jan. 16 in Florida


Nebraska City, Neb.
- Residents of Florida
will celebrate Arbor Day
2009 on January 16. While
National Arbor Day is held
on the last Friday in April,
Florida, similar to several
other states, observes the
holiday at a time best suited
for tree planting.
The Arbor Day
Foundation encourages
everyone to plant a tree
to celebrate this special
holiday. The Foundation's
Web site (www.arborday.
org) offers many helpful
tips from how to plant a tree
to selecting the right tree for
the right place.
Florida has 133 Tree City
USA communities. Tree
City USA is sponsored by
the Arbor Day Foundation
in cooperation with the
U.S. Forest Service and
the National Association
of State Foresters. The
program was established to
recognize communities that
are committed to its trees.
More than 120 million
Americans live in a Tree
City USA community. To


see a list of Tree City USA
communities, go to www.
arborday.org/programs/
' treeCityUSA.cfin.
The first Arbor Day was
celebrated in Nebraska
on April 10, 1872, thanks
to a resolution proposed
by Nebraska City, Neb.,
resident J. Sterling Morton.
Morton, a civic leader,
agriculturist, and former
newspaper editor, urged
Nebraskans to "set aside one
day to plant trees, both forest
and fruit." The tree-planting
holiday was so popular that


by 1920, more than 45
states and U.S. territories
annually celebrated Arbor
Day. Today, Arbor Day is
observed in all 50 states and
in many countries around
the world.
The cabbage palmetto,
sabal palmetto, was adopted
. as Florida's state tree in
1953. In 1970 the state
legislature passed that a
palmetto tree should be
featured on the state seal
instead of a cocoa palm.
Known for its many uses,
including medicine and food


as well as landscaping, the
palm has the ability to grow
in almost any soil. This
palm is also the most widely
distributed in Florida.
The Arbor Day
Foundation is a nonprofit
conservation organization
of nearly one million
members, with a mission
to inspire people to plant,
nurture, and celebrate trees.
More information on the
Foundation and its programs
or ways to celebrate Arbor
Day can be found at www.

gone to meet a friend at 12461 N.E. 80th
-Ave., Bronson at 2 a.m. on Jan. 6. While'
at the home, the attack occurred. The shoes
were Nike absorbers, chrome trim, light
blue laces, size 12.
Detective Mike Bell went to the home
of Sandra Foshee, 8450 N.E. 120t St., after
learning Neal frequented the home. She
consented to a search of the home. Bell

stolen shoes.

for disorderly intoxication on Jan. 7 after
banging on the windows and doors of a
women's shelter near Chiefland.

identified the first man, who was born in
Mexico, as John Doe 1. The second man

Politics is


never boring

By Rick Burnham
Editor
A n old Air Force boss of mine used to tell me
that politics is the
most interesting
thing in the world. I
routinely told him he was nuts,
that everybody knew the most
interesting thing in the world is
college football.,
More and more, though, I
think he was right.
Politics can be mind-
boggling at times, regardless of
whether those in question are
local, regional or national.
Take, for example, the Minnesota senate race between
Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Al Franken.
Coleman won the seat in November by more than
200 votes, but a recount gave Franken the victory by
225. Coleman.has now sued, and the whole thing will
apparently be settled in court. In question are procedures
used by a canvassing board, specifically the alleged
rejection of absentee ballots from Republican-leaning
areas while other ballots were reportedly counted twice.
And get this the recount apparently included more
votes than there were people who signed in to vote in 25
different precincts. Interesting.
Florida received much criticism following:the 2000
presidential election, and errors were almost certainly
made. But the perceived outright theft of an election -
performed with an in-your-face-we-don't-Care-what-you-
think manner makes Minnesota the new poster child for
election deception.
Speaking of deception and corruption it is hard to
truly believe what a three-ring circus the whole issue with
the governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich has turned
into. The Illinois House of Representatives voted 114-1
on Friday to impeach the guy. And it is hard to argue with
them. Therwhole thing must be infinitely embarrassing,.
But since that's the bed they ,made, tfhe) should have to
sleepJ in it. As' a' 16al'acquaintanee told me a few.welks
back, "That's how they do things up there," speaking of
corruption. Considering we just put a Chicago politician
in the White House, though, it is a little unsettling.
Speaking of which, no mention of politics would
be complete without some analysis of the upcoming
presidential inauguration. The historical aspect of Barack
Obamna taking the throne is certainly interesting in itself.
More compelling, to me, though is what will happen after
the inauguration.
No one can argue Obama's ability to communicate
well. His talent for delivering a rousing and influential
narrative probably did more to secure his election victory
than anything else. It brings to mind two other recent
presidents known for their communication skills: Ronald
Reagan and Bill Clinton.
Both Reagan and Clinton upended incumbent
presidents and did so largely because they were able to
communicate their ideas in a way that made sense to
Americans everywhere. That's where the similarities
end, however. Once in the Oval Office, Reagan used his
charismatic style and charm to lead the country to new
levels of national pride and patriotism. Clinton used his
on the new intern.
That's probably a little unfair to Bill Clinton. Slick
Willy certainly did well in maintaining a strong economy,
so not all was lost during those unfortunate eight years.
But his penchant for chasing every skirt that crossed his
path did little to maintain the dignity of the White House.
It will be interesting to see which former president
Barack Obama resembles the most when his time in
Washington is done. Here's hoping he uses his talents for
good and not evil.
Local politics can be interesting as well. Take, for
example, the fact that our county commission is still
plowing ahead with only 60 percent manning. The
indictments of Sammy Yearty and Tony Parker, and the
subsequent suspensions of them from county commission
responsibilities, were certainly unfortunate for Levy
County. Ideally, time will prove them both to be innocent,
and both can return to their important duties.
In the meantime, a viable and commonsense
replacement one who came within 300 votes of taking
a seat on the commission on election day in November
sits idly by. We at the Journal have said repeatedly
that we do not endorse local candidates. But how much


thought does it take to see that Abraham Blitch is the
obvious choice to join the county commission at a
critical time for Levy County? It will be interesting to
see whether Governor Charlie Crist comes to a similar
conclusion when he fills the vacant seats on the county
commission.
If that ever happens.

Staff Writer
I watched President-Elect Barack Obama's state of the
economy speech last Thursday and had a generally
favorable impression, though the speech was
intentionally lacking in detail and I fear his plan may
be putting the cart before the horse.
Politicians from both parties are eyeing this money.
No doubt they plan to compete for their share of the
funding. I think that's obvious. I am concerned more
about losing track of some of this money and having it
slip into the pockets of the powerful and well connected
in Washington and elsewhere.
While I think a stimulus plan is a good idea as a
Concept, the muonS .coyld.be squandered, wasted or
even stolen if the plan is not carefully thought out and if
there are no requirements to tie the money directly to job
growth and economic stability.
Lack of accountability is how we got to this point. It's
also the reason Americans have little faith in the processes
of government, particularly at the national level. Giving
away hundreds of billions of dollars to industry doesn't
seem like a good idea. Giving it to governments doesn't
seem reasonable either unless every penny spent can be
accounted for.
The economy would rebound quicker if the American
people believed gas and diesel prices would remain low
and they weren't going to regret spending money they
may need later in a depression. But to get to that point,
Americans would first need to have faith in the integrity
of the very federal and state governments and corporate
leaders who caused the economic mess in the first place.
That faith isn't there yet and with good reason.
Before he considers supporting a big economic
stimulus plan, I think the first thing the Obama
administration should tackle is the corruption on Wall
Street. The Securities,and Exchange Commission is
supposed to be overseeing the trading business on Wall
Street, but it has been asleep at the wheel. People need
to know the government is regulating stockbrokers and
corporate executives who manipulate the market at the
expense of investors and the American people. I include
the Chicago Mercantile Exchange when I talk about Wall
Street. That's where oil futures are traded.
I also believe Obama needs to take a hard look at
monopolies in the market place. When large companies
are allowed to dominate state and local markets at the


In the event that the rumor mill hasn't carried the news
your way yet, these will be my last words in respect to the
Levy County Fair and any other volunteer work. I would
like for you to hear from me that I have resigned and set
a few things straight. I've all ready within 24 hours, been
privy to rumours. I will begin by stating emphatically,
that I have no intention on dousing the Levy County Fair
or the Fair Board in general. I believe this community
needs a fair and most of the fair board are hard working,
experienced and committed people. I believe their
decision to continue, despite the hostile attempt by Eileen
DeCora to stop progress, to be a sign of their un-shattered
commitment. My resignation is of little effect as I am
one of many Who can and will help to successfully
complete the annual county fair. Additionally, as it has
been stated a great many times, "there are people who
will help if Bob Levesque is gone!". Now is your chance
folks. Don't leave this now troubled small group to fen
for themselves any further. Join their team and make the
Levy County Fair, AWESOME!
Now, the sole purpose of my resignation, was


expense of smaller companies and the American people,
people lose hope. They lose faith in the system. They
wonder who in Washington is looking out for their best
interests.
The entire business landscape at the national level is
becoming a wicked melting pot of foreign corporations,
fabulously wealthy American corporations, and merged
companies that dispense with employees whenever they
wish to expand or merge again. These companies can hire
top-notch lawyers, accountants and political lobbyists to
manipulate laws and politicians to their own advantage.
There was a time in this country when the monopoly
busters were popular in government. They broke up the
big firms into smaller companies because they knew the
dangers of.consolidating political power in the hands of,
a few people in the private sector. But there are many ,
rmonbpolies in our markets today, and they need to be
branded as such and broken up. Public relations people
and 16bbyists have managed to manipulate public opinion
to view these huge corporate entities as the future of the
free enterprise in this country. I think we need to call a
spade a spade and a monopoly a monopoly. The laws
governing these unfair enterprises should be changed to
protect Americans from market monopolies.
Much needs to be done to restore the faith of the
American people in government and in the large private
corporate institutions that have taken over our economy
and fallen flat on their faces. Now, these huge whiz bang
companies that lived off borrowed money are begging for
government handouts and trying to scare the American
people into believing the handouts are the answer while
they stuff their pockets with more money.
The answer is out there, and I do think government
needs to take the lead role in bringing about more
accountability in the failing private sector at the national
level. The laws need to change and government needs
to exercise integrity and ethical regulatory behavior in
bringing about needed changes before the big giveaways
take place. And they need to do it quickly, but without
destroying the private sector. They need to make it
stronger and not give favorable tax breaks that enable
large companies and corporations to crush small ones.
Whatever happened to free and fair competition?
The problem with giving away a trillion dollars of
money is that it may not stimulate the economy. Money
and words alone are not the answer. It's going to take

the constant attack and accusations I have personally
faced over the past 3+ years. Everything from simply
misrepresenting one, to intentionally writing bad checks.
The latest accusations made by Eileen DeCora I'm sure
won't be the last, but I refuse to continue to put myself in
the place to be a target. To clear a'few things up:
Our business has never been at risk of eviction,
subletting was approved by our land lord. The person
spreading this rumour is the same who tried to pull the
building out from under us. Thanks Bonnie!
Our financial condition is presently uncomfortable
due to the economy and more intrinsically, the countless
hours my wife and I have spent putting the fair before our
business and the 10-12 thousand dollars in printing, signs,
services and supplies we committed to the fair as in-kind
sponsorship and donation. It has all finally caught up
with us! These items and services should not be confused
with any money we we're paid for signs over the past
two years. We were asked to make the signs when the

congressional action to bring about the
changes that give the American people
faith in the economy once more.
I suspect it may be difficult to move in
that direction because the conservatives in
Congress generally favor less regulation
of business and industry, not more.
However, I think we're finding out that
a lax regulatory atmosphere can lead to
economic problems in this country. It
can lead to corruption and ultimately to
recession when the house of cards falls.
Conservatives have controlled the U.S.
Congress for 14 of the last 16 years. I
think we can see the results.
Whatever solutions are proposed
should be more than one dimensional.
Conservatives tend to push for tax
incentives and tax exemptions for large
businesses, industry, and occasionally for
small businesses. They believe the risk
takers and entrepreneurs need to have
money to operate with or they won't be

able to create jobs. I think that's true. But
that philosophy has spiraled out of control
in the past decade or more.
Democrats tend to want to take away
tax breaks from the wealthy, from big
businesses and industry, knowing they can
exploit the dollars they earn from these tax
breaks for political and financial gain. I
think the Democrats have been in business
long enough to know that any tax breaks
they give to big business and industry
often allows the business leaders to reward
conservative politicians with healthy
campaign contributions.
The two sides need to meet somewhere
in the middle. I am hoping the Democratic
plan to reduce tax advantages for the
wealthy relates more to individuals rather
than companies. At the same time, I think
Congress needs to be wary of continuing
the current policies of rewarding size and
political power in the corporate world. It's
not working.

suggested, "you've given a lot and worked hard on this
,project, you should be able to get paid for something".
Again we repeated that it was a conflict, but no one was
able to get a commitment with good pricing from anyone
else.
My wife was nominated and elected as treasurer by
the board, including Eileen DeCora, who may have even
made the nomination! We expressed again the conflict
of interest and issues that may arise, but they agreed and
said, "until we find someone else". That never happened.
Neither I or the treasurer ever withheld any
information, including financial from any board member.
In accordance to our bylaws, the complete financial
information was not due to be reported until the annual
meeting in February and she was accumulating every
detail and attempting to organize it for that purpose.


I also think Obama and Congress
should take a serious look at changing
the rules for political contributions. Soft
money, which can't be traced back to its
sources, should be outlawed. I think the
maximum contribution of any individual
and corporation, regardless of size, should
be $1,000. I believe no corporation or
company or organization should be able to
multiply its political influence by allowing
employees to contribute money on their
behalf.
We can't keep doing business as
usual in our campaigns. The presidential
campaign this year set new records for
spending. I don't know what the combined
spending was for both sides, but the
money thrown away on the political
campaigns would have been better spent
funding children's hospitals. I would
rather see political campaigns waged on
free tv and on free Internet channels. Limit
congressional campaigns to $25,000 of


Eileen DeCora refuses to follow apparently refuses to
allow by-laws to be a prevailing factor in operation. As a
matter of fact every action and practice has been through
the decisions and determinations of the fair board and it's
executive committee.
Every penny paid to our businesses was approved
by the fair board and invoices were submitted. Eileen
DeCora has hopefully requested all the association
minutes in order to answer her many accusations and
questions. She should have done this before making
them. I refuse to be questioned any further, review the
minutes.
On behalf of Sandi and I, I will also state that upon
turning over all of the financial documents to Larry Myers
to be delivered to the fair board, although the organization
of the records was not complete for presentation (thank
Eileen DeCora for that), all the bills for the 2008 fair
were paid or checks were written and signed awaiting
delivery, there was $88.24 in the Perkins Account and

to $10 million of spending. Force the
candidates to meet the people in district-
wide or country-wide bus and airplane
tours.
It's easy to see why I'm not a big fan
of the economic stimulus plan being
proposed first by Bush and now by
Obama. I think groundwork needs to be
laid first to gain the confidence of the
American people in the economy and the
institutions that run it at the high levels
of the market. Americans need more
confidence in federal and state elected
leaders. They need to know the regulatory
measures are in place to protect them from
gouging, theft and fraud. They need to
know that our elected officials aren't being
bribed by millions of dollars in campaign
contributions.
The Obama administration has a lot on
its plate come Jan. 20.

that amount. An additional $1,400.00 was deposited
into the loan repayment account at Capitol City Bank
following a fundraiser Erv K. and I put together over the
holidays, while Eileen was demanding accountability.
Thank you Erv for all of your help, I think the fair board
will miss you. All finances were fulfilled and all debts
paid. The stop payment we made has been resolved. Mr
Dyson was not successful in extorting an extra $700.00
from our account.
Please understand that although this seems like Fm
on the attack, I am at complete peace. I simply believe I
shouldn't slip away into quietness and allow people like
Eileen DeCora to facilitate the destruction of my person
integrity and tear apart the fabric of what several of us
started nearly four years ago. I am not taking my ball
and going home, I simply feel the each of us is given a
level of endurance to do there part to better society and
my time is apparently up. I truly hope the each of you
will examine your hearts and find your place and time.
I believe we are assigned to deploy our efforts. My
deployment is over. I want to retire in peace and the fair

Local historian brings Civil War to life


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor.


There's no doubt Levy County has a
rich history. But, like most treasures, first
it has to be discovered.
Toni Collins has spent the last eight
to 10 years documenting Levy County
archives. On Saturday, as a presentation
by the Friends of the Library, a special j
guest visited the Luther Callaway Library
in Chiefland and shared her story.
Dressed -in a wide-sweeping, old-
fashioned dress complete with petticoats
and lace gloves, Maria Tresper, who lived
at Clay Landing on the Suwannee River
during the Civil War, shared her story
through her diary entries.
Maria Tresper, of course, was brought
to life by Collins, who compiled the diary
entries based on her research and probate
records, as well as her imagination.
Maria A. Niblack was originally from
Columbia County and was 23 when she
married 33-year-old George H. Tresper
and moved to Clay Landing, Levy
County.
The first diary entry reads from Jan. 12,
1861, and addresses Florida's secession
from the Union that took place Jan. 10,
1861. Tresper isn't frightened of the
imminent war because Levy County is Local historic
Tresper" at th
so far from those northern states looking
to crush the .South's hope 6f its own
confederacy.
The next big entry discusses the Battle of Fort Sumter
in which the South overtook the Union garrison, thereby
launching the country into war.
"I believe this day will not be forgotten in the Soutlern
annals," Tresper writes. "The Civil War, so long dreaded,
has begun."
Although Collins can't prove that Maria's husband,
George, was a blockade runner, she presents him as one
in the diary.
It makes the most sense, Collins said. George didn't go
away to the war and he was wealthy, which is a tell-tale
sign of a blockade runner.
Blockade runners, the most famous representative being
Rhett Butler from "Gone With the Wind," used ships and
boats to transport cargo such as food, weapons and cotton
despite the blockades the North placed. A very dangerous
job that required elusion and quick thinking, blockade
running was also a lucrative business.
After begging for months, Maria was finally permitted
to accompany George on one of his blockade trips on Oct.
23, 1862, to Havana, Cuba. During a close call encounter
with the Northern blockade, George slipped papers and
documents to Maria and instructed her to hide then well in
her petticoats and pantaloons.
After narrowly escaping, Maria expresses to her diary
that she will never beg to accompany George again.
In an entry a short time after the trip to Cuba, Maria is
informed that her husband was killed by Northern troops
when trying to bum his vessel so as not to let it fall into
enemy hands.


n Toni Collins answers questions from the audience after her presentation of "The Civil War Diary of Maria
e Luther Callaway Library Saturday.


"I have no idea what we owe or what is owed to us,"
Maria lamented to her diary.
Maria continued to stay at her home in Clay Landing
after her husband's death until May 10, 1864, when two
Yankee military officers entered her home and arrested her.
First, they conducted a search, focusing on finding George's
old papers. When they weren't looking, Maria recovered
the papers from George that she hid in the library in the
topmost shelf.
Maria was unable to write again until August 23 because
she. was imprisoned at the Cedar Keys garrison. The
Yankees never found the papers George gave her because
she hid them once again in her petticoats.
A year, later, after discovering her husband had
accumulated much wealth that he put in banks in
Pennsylvania, New York and Havana, Maria writes that
on April 13, 1865, the church bells in Cedar Key rang to
signal the end of the war.
However the end of the war was just the beginning of
"Restoration."
"The seven years after the Civil War was the darkest
and most trying of times for the South," she wrote. Levy
County government wasn't restored until 1868 three
years after the war ended.
Although much of the story was invented by historian
Toni Collins, she said Maria did remarry a Metlodist
minister in 1868, Samuel Phillips, and died five years later.
She is buried in the Micanopy Cemetery.
Collins said another thing she is sure of is that Levy
County was not subject to yellow fever, the highly
contagious sickness that took the lives of so many during
that time, because .they stopped the train at the Alachua/


Levy border so the fever could not be carried to this area.
After the presentation, Collins explained how she got
started in Levy County history. As a deputy clerk at the
probate office eight to 10 years ago, she was asked to
establish Levy County archives. It was then she came
across the probate records of 1854 and "Wild Cat Bank
Notes" (the notes of currency from local banks during the
Civil War) that belonged to George Tresper.
Once she began to compile the history, she received
requests from local libraries to share the information.
SueAnn Burkhardt, the head librarian at the Luther
Callaway Library, said Collins performed at the library for
the first time a year and a half ago, but the program onr
Saturday probably had the biggest audience they've ever
seen, with about 35 people in attendance.
Collins has several other characters she brings to life,
including Catharine Hopday who acted as the Seahorse Key
lighthouse keeper from 1872-1879. In her 70s "at the time,'
Hopday was commissioned as one of the oldest lighthouse
keepers and she is buried on the island.
On Saturday, Jan. 24, Collins will present Hopday's
story at the Luther Callaway Library.
Collins said she enjoys these programs because history,
especially local history, is important to understand where
we come from.
It's sad, but most children these days aren't taught local
history, she said.
Although Collins isn't originally from Levy County,'or
the South even (she's from Pennsylvania), she said she is a
Southerner at heart.
"There's so much history and so much yet to be
discovered," she said. "I just hope I'm able to find much
of it out."

Bronson Middle School boys remain unbeaten


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's middle school boys 'basketball team defeated
Yankeetown 43-9 last week, but the point spread could
have been worse if the undefeated Eagles had not practiced
sportsmanship.
The 11-0 Eagles were told by Coach Aaron Haldeman,
the varsity boys' coach who was substituting for Coach Al
Hemdon, that they wouldn't run up the score.
Haldeman instructed the boys in the fourth quarter they
couldn't score without making seven passes first. Fast
break buckets were outlawed for the balance of the game.
They were instructed to play tough defense, however.
"I told them I don't want to run up the score,".Haldeman
said. "At the same time I wanted them to stay sharp."
Haldeman also told them they could make no more than
seven turnovers. They hit the number right on the head.
They had seven turnovers.
The team is talented, athletic and coachable.
"It's the whole Bronson thing for 24 years," said
Haldeman, who is originally from Cedar Key. "They don't
rebuild. They reload."
Yankeetown Coach Chuck Gatton said he was missing
three starters for the game, two for behavioral issues, and
one for a medical problem, but he said his team battled.
"I was proud of them. They hustled," Gatton said.
Herndon, their regular coach, agrees the team is talented.
He said the only team they had any trouble with this year
was the Chiefland Braves. They defeated the Braves by 3'
points in the second meeting of the team. But the Braves
weren't pushovers.
Herndon said his Eagles found a way to win.'
The Eagles took an 18-0 lead in the Yankeetown game.
The team often takes a big lead. That allows Hemdon to
play the younger players quite a bit. He has 16 players on
the team.
"I really don't have anyone I won't put in a clutch
situation," he said.
Herndon conceded that he had to keep his starters in the

game against Chiefland. He used about eight players for
that game.
At the same time, Herndon avoids blowouts if his team'
is dominating the game.
"We don't want the opponents to go away with a bad
taste in their mouth," he said.
Herndon said he coached one Bronson middle school
team similar to this one. The team finished the season 10-4.
They were good, but not this good.
This team*has the potential to finish the season 15-0.,
Herndon said they have their eye on the prize, but they are
taking the season one game at a time.. They aren't making
the assumption that all their remaining opponents will be
automatic wins.
But the team talent level is high. iThat's assured. The


Eagles have a good point guard in Tavaris Thomas and a
growing 7th grade center, Devon Jenkins, already 6-feet
3-inches tall. Guard Ty Barber, a straight-A student, also
impresses Herndon. He is impressed with the entire team.
But he is riot the only coach taking notice.
"These boys; I don't think anyone could beat them,"
said girls middle school Coach Crystal Hubbard. "They're
an army."

Newberry tops Indians

in hard-fought battle

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland's varsity boys'
basketball team lost 50-39 to
Newberry Friday, but the score
was hardly an indicator of the
warfare that took place on the court.
The game was a bruising
defensive battle at times.
But Chiefland's 24 percent
shooting from the field and
Newberry's height advantage
were factors that played into the
loss.
A point separated the teams
at the half, but midway through
the third period Chiefland 'Coach
Mark Lundy sat his starters down,
hoping to get some energy from
the bench.
It didn't work.
Newberry's lead ballooned
to 38-30. The starters returned
and closed the gap to 39-34, but
Newberry kept the momentum.
"I think the guys worked hard
and played well, but I don't think
they played cohesive," said Lundy.
Chiefland was 5 of 14 from the


free throw line. Newberry was 18
of 34.
The Panthers were camped
out at the charity line most of the
night. Chiefland fans complained
bitterly about the officiating.
Lundy said Chiefland hustled
on defense, but he said his players
were using their hands more than
moving their feet to gain position.
It was a disappointing loss for
Lundy. He has nine seniors and.
had hoped for a different outcome.
But he said there are no bad teams
in the district.
Next year, Chiefland will go
down one classification due to
shrinking student enrollment.
But for now, Chiefland will
face teams like Newberry for the-
rest of the season.

Hawthorne pulls away from Bronson for lopsided win


By Ryan Butler
Correspondent

After beginning the game
on a 7-0 run, the Bronson boys'
basketball team was swamped by
a relentless Hawthorne squad that
defended their home court in a 74-
47 win Friday.
A 5-0 run by the Eagles to start
the final quarter made the score
50-36 in favor of Hawthorne, and
caused Hornets head coach Greg
Bowie to call time out. But using
a swarming defense, athleticism
and a fast-break offense, HHS
responded with an 11-0 run of
their own. A huge block and an
immediate transition 3-pointer


with a little over three minutes left
put an exclamation point on the
eminent victory, and energized
the passionate Hawthorne crowd.
The home team was then able to
run out the clock and hold on to
the 27-point victory.
Beginning in the second
quarter, the Hornets dominated
the game in all facets. Bronson
was not able to get their half-
court offense going again after a
hot start, struggling from the field
and missing many contested jump
shots. The defensive pressure from
the Hawthorne guards stopped
Bronson before they could give it
to their playmakers in the low post.
Hawthorne's offense was also too


much to handle for the Eagle's
defense. While the Hornets were
contained, for the most part, in the
half court, the transition game and
offensive rebounding allowed the
team to tear Bronson's defense
apart.
The game's start pointed to
a different outcome. Bronson
began the contest on a tear from
the field, and their tempo press
forced Hawthorne to play a half
court game, which was snuffed
out by the Eagles. But the visitors'
quick start was quickly erased as
the Hornets began controlling the
tempo of the game and cutting
their opponents' lead to two at
the end of the first quarter. Then


the hornets exploded for a 10-
0 run over a mere 45 seconds
in the second quarter before
Bronson called a time out with
six minutes left before the half.
Up 8 at that point, HHS added 6
more to their streak to go up 32-
18 before Bronson scored 7 in a
row to cut the lead in half. But
then Hawthorne went on a 6-0 run
of their own to go up 38-25 at the
intermission, which essentially
put the game out of reach.
Bronson's James Rivers
appeared to be able to carry his
team to victory early on, scoring
11 first half points via the key, 3-

Chiefland's junior varsity
boys' basketball team defeated
Newberry 47-42 Friday for a big
mid season boost.
The Indians used relentless
defense to retain their narrow lead
until the buzzer.
Coach Adam Boyd saw what
he was looking for in the Indians.
The team never quit. It battled to
keep Newberry at bay: It fought
for every rebound and loose ball.
"It's about competing for the
whole game," Boyd said. "We
didn't have our heads down. We
kept competing and hustling."


The game was never a run-
away, which made the win all the
more impressive for Chiefland.
Newberry refused to back down.
It came down to a battle of
wills.
The Indians led at the half 21-
18. Chiefland's passing was crisp.
The in-your-face defense put a
crimp in the Panthers' game plan.
Chiefland used defensive steals
to, generate fast break baskets.
Everything worked.
Yet the game remained close.
Newberry hit a 3-point shot late
in the third period. Trent Perryman
responded seconds later with a
3-point shot of his own, giving
Chiefland a 34-29 advantage. The


period ended 35-31 with Chiefland
in the lead.
The Panthers fought back
and tied the score at 37-37 with
4:31 left. It was a turning point.
Chiefland could have folded. It
didn't.
Perryman hit a jump shot and
Hermie McClendon made two
defensive hustle plays to stop
Newberry scoring threats.
Free throws by Vincent Days
and McClendon gave Chiefland
a 40-37 lead, but Newberry
continued to battle. It evened the
score once more before Perryman
hit a jump shot to give Chiefland
a 42-40 lead.
Chiefland's big man down


low, Bo Beauchamp, dominated
the boards in spite of the fierce
contact under the net.
The Indians finished the game
at the free throw line, with Tony
Bennett sinking to charity shots to
end Newberry's chances.

Bronson varsity girls lose to Bell

SBy Terry Witt
Staff Writer


The Bronson High School varsity girls' basketball team
lost 59-46 to Bell Friday night.
Missed scoring opportunities were a big factor in the
defeat.
The Lady Eagles used their height advantage to get
repeated shots at the basket, but many of the shots missed
the mark in the intense physical battles raging around the
shooters.'
Coach Sherrie Schuler said the girls lost their focus
as they were shooting. Some appeared to flinch amid the
flying arms and elbows.
"We missed quite a few shots inside," said Coach
Sherrie Schuler. "We were getting fouled on put backs and
didn't hit the shots. When you leave that many points..."
The game was marked by a high number of steals and
jump balls as the two teams battled defensively.
S'chuler said she is dealing with some discipline issues
as a result of some girls missing practice. The missed
practices have hurt the team. The coach said she has let the
girls know that the behavior won't be permitted:
"I don't do excuses," she said. "It's not me. I've told
them 'you're letting down your teammates.'"
Schuler she has plenty of talent on the team. The height.
of the team is exceptional, but the girls have yet to take
advantage of it in scoring situations.
When the girls reach the district tournament, Schuler
said everything goes back to scratch. Everyone is equal at
the start of the tourney.
"All the pieces are there. We just need to put the pieces
together," Schuler said.

Suwannee Valley Players to present "Misconceptions," Jan. 16-17
The Suwannee Valley Players opened their winter comedy Misconceptions
by Michael Vukadinovich. The comedy, directed by Janice Grant with the
assistance of Mike Humphries and Gregory Mercier, is a story about lies and
misconceptions that lead to a host of misunderstandings.
Two sisters, Claire (Susan Lastra) and Dora (Elizabeth Phillips), are
opposites when it comes to just about everything, and this night is no exception.
Claire has spent her day at a funeral, while Dora has been at a wedding. But
while Dora complains of not being able to meet anyone at the wedding, Claire
admits to running into an old fling, Peter (Frank Lastra), at the funeral.
I There is one thing about which the two sisters do agree. Their mother (Janice
Grant) is starting to worry them with her seemingly random comments about
boats of clothes, red meat, and Jimmy Stewart. Enjoy this hilarious comedy
as it unfolds with erroneous conclusions, realizations, and coincidences that
are sure to bring side-splitting laughs.
Performance dates are Jan. 18 at 2:30 p.m. at the Chief Theater on 25 E.
ParkAve, in Chiefland. This looks to be one of the funniest plays of the season.
Mark your calendars now for this hilarious event. The play is being presented

Sibling rivalry, fake pregnancy and a shoe thief


The Suwannee


Valley


Players'


newest comedy on stage now


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Talk about a dysfunctional family.
In a "bonus play" that was produced (rehearsals, set
building, line memorization, etc.) start to finish in just
over a month, the Suwannee Valley Players bring four
"eccentric" characters to life in its newest production,
"Misconceptions" by Michael Vukadinovich.
The play, which opened last Friday and runs through
Sunday, centers around two sisters, Claire and Dora, who
are as different as night and day.
Claire, played by SVP President Susan Lastra, is
sensitive and a hopeless romantic. She mopes around their
apartment in Eeyore pajamas and dreams of the day she'll
fall in love.
Dora, Claire's older sister played by SVP Publicity
Chairperson Elizabeth Phillips, has a devil-may-care
attitude, is cynical about men and love, and is generally
just trying to make Claire's life miserable.
The sisters discover secrets, develop lies, experience
love and try to kill each other, all in one crazy night.
The story begins when each of the women come home:
Claire from a funeral at which she was reacquainted with
an old flame, and Dora from a wedding at,which she was
highly amused when the 12 released doves were attacked
by awaiting hawks. '
The two cannot carry on a conversation without getting
-into a fight, and soon they're chasing each other around the
couch on stage afler Claire learns that Dora dated her only
:crush (which happened to be in the third grade).
Things take a turn for the worse when Peter, Claire's
old boyfriend she re-met at the funeral, calls. Pretending
she's Claire, Dora answers the phone and invites him over
much to the horror of Claire, who is still in her pajamas
-and now has lipstick all over her face from their fight.
It gets even worse when their crazy mother, played by
SVP Vice President and Misconceptions" director Janice
Grant, shows up for a visit unexpectedly.
This is where the play's title, comes in.
In an attempt to get Claire "in trouble" with their mother,
Dora blurts out that Claire is pregnant. .
Since no one believes Claire has any kind of love life,
she plays along with the lie to try to prove her mother
wrong, resulting in a fight about a fake baby.
Both of the sisters storm out, leaving their mother alone
in the living room.
In the funniest scene in, the play, shy Peter, played by
Frank Lastra, arrives at the apartment and ends up facing


off with the sisters' mother.
The two carry on completely
different conversations; she
thinks he's the father of the
baby and asks him questions
about how it happened, and
he just thinks she's talking
about his and Claire's ..
re-acquaintance and
impending relationship.
Will the truth about the
baby be revealed? Will
Claire and Peter have a
chance at love? Will Claire,
Dora and their meddling
mother resolve their
issues?

play that was squeezed in
between two regularly scheduled season plays.
Susan Lastra, who played Claire, said the best part of
having to put the play together so quickly was the closeness
the cast and crew developed.
"We've had fun throughout the whole thing despite the
rush," she said.
"The rehearsals, the set building; the whole thing has
been enjoyable," Frank Lastra added. "It makes it better
for the audience when they see the joy on our faces!"
Elizabeth Phillips, who played Dora, said they try to
bring something "edgy" and different with the experimental
slots, compared to their usually family-friendly plays.
"Misconceptions," labeled PG-13, discusses sexual
topics and some words may not be suitable for young
children. For this reason, parents may want to make a date
night out of it and leave the young .oes at home, Phillips
said.

"It gives them a way to express themselves," he said.
"It's an educational thing and gives them knowledge about

"That's sQmething rather unique about community

Phillips said each production costs about $3,000, and
as a non-profit theater, the,Players are always looking fo}
donations.
"It's not just money either," Frank said. "It can be hats,
dresses, anything."
The Players recently sent out a "Hopes and Dreams"
letter to everyone on their mailing list. In it they outlined
their hopes: "to replace all exterior doors and paint the
outside of the building"; their dreams: "to insulate the roof
and install a drop ceiling in the attic"; and their long-term
goal: "to continue to restore the interior and exterior of the
building to be a proud cultural arts center for our'tri-county

Future appears strong


for three Bronson teams

By Rick Burnham
Editor

No one who knows Al Cooksey is surprised that the Bronson Head
Football Coach will put special emphasis on weightlifting in the months
ahead. Since virtually the day he arrived at Bronson High School,
Cooksey has said repeatedly that to get better, the Eagles will have to get
bigger and stronger.
But Cooksey's words during the annual Bronson football hbnquet
held Monday at the school left even the school's most avid supporters
speechless.
In 2009, he said, the Bronson Eagles will bring their commitment to
the weight room to an all new level.
."When we studied what
was happening here and what
we needed to do to get better,
we found we were the weakest
football team in America." he
said. (This year) we are going to
be the strongest team Bronson has
ever had. We are going to be the
strongest team in Levy County this
year.
"I love challenges," he added.
Cooksey said a culture of-losing
has been in place for far too long at
Bronson High School.e
"It takes a lot of work to win,
and it takes a lot more work when
you haven't won before or haven't
recently been winning,'."he said.
"Winning is a habit and losing
is a habit. We have lost txay too long. It is time for Bronson to din at.
everything not just football. Every sport. In the classroom.
S"The only way p e are going to win is to work."
Bronson finished its season Nov. 14 \\ith a difficult. 40-12 loss
to Bell, but recorded four 'ins in the weeks prior, including a 38-13
homecoming %\in over NIcClay Nov. 7 tlfiat gave CookseN his 100(i %in
as a head coach. The Eagles also defeated the Florida School.for the
Deaf and Blind. along \ith Upper Room Academy oand .as i1fly'
Earlier in the evening. the'Bronson faithful celebrated a banner year
by the Eagles Junior Varsity squad. Head Coach Greg Haniilton spoke of
landmark wins over Lafayette Mayo.
"Lafayette Mayo is year in, year out a state power,".he said. "They
were big. fast at the skill positions, skilled at the skill positions."
Despite that, touchdowns by Tommy Stacey and AJ Graham paced
the Eagles to the win.
"Our gua s were up to the struggle."' Hamilton said. "There is
absolutely\ no quit in them." '
Hamilton said the support his team received from the varsity
squad during the year both from players and coaches -' was simply
outstanding.
"That kind of coinmmnity is contagious:" he said. "What you did for
these yotmger guys was awesome, and \%e really appreciate it."'
By the end of the season, the JV squad had defeated every team it
played, including Lafayette Mayo twice.
"I am so proud of what they have. done," Hamilton said.
The evening began with a tribute to the Middle School team. Head
Coach James Pogue spoke of the commitment his team received from
above, particularly from Cooksey. Pogue said, initially, he had no
intention of coaching football on a full-time basis.
"When he first came here, I told him I would help him in the Spring,"
he said. "But after that first practice, I knew that it was something I
wanted to be around, because I can learn something from this guy."
Pogue recognized the players on his team who achieved academic
success during the year. Hamilton and Cooksey did the same.
"Acadmics first, discipline and character," Cooksey said. "I hope this
year our kids displayed that. When you put something in place, and raise
the expectations, good things can happen."

Driving out loud
After five months of living in Levy County. I am sloxwl, but not necessarily so very'
surely, learning my way around the area. Road signs are helpful, but not really. Thank
God for my daughter who's the math genius and can. in a matter of a split second. read
the 500-digit road name and tell me where we are.
Folks tell me that once you get used to it. it's really easier %with the numbers than street
names. Okay, but I can get lost ii the neighborhood in which I grew up, being somewhat
directionally challenged, so I have learned to stop and shamelessly ask for directions.
S. .. -. ,- ,., - .-. ,- . . ,. ;, -c*- -' .,,
(Unlike husbands. who insist the.), are. just making the scenic, rout) .
In Gainesville recently. I had to roll down the window and scare some innocent folks
to ask them where in Hahira (pronounced Hay-hire-uh; small town in Georgia) was the
theater there: I know, I know, it's easy but you just have to consider the source here.
Wisely, they gave the directions to our 12-year-old daughter and we were there in no
time. We were way on time, as a matter of fact, being probably a good three hours early,
having missed the previous showing because someone got lost. So we bought our tickets
early and went in search of food. She, like our Editor (her new hero see last week's
editorial), could have just stayed at the theater and eaten Skittles, but I require a little more
than that, especially after all of that driving around.
After walking in a fast food seafood place, and smelling bad plumbing or really bad
seafood, we decided that maybe the catch of the day was not our heart's desire. We left
and settled on a trendy, upscale chain restaurant that offers a pretty diverse menu. We
were excited to be there, this excursion being a rare treat for us. We were discussing the
options, asking what would be the most delicious entree, when it became apparent to us
that either we had both instantly gone deaf, or the noise level was deafening. (I know I
already addressed this issue in another story, but it still goes on.)
After some little while of trying to converse across a two-foot span, we gave it up in
lieu of sign language, although my daughter did at one point yell, "Mother, it's awfully
loud in here, don't you think?" Her cry temporarily stopped the totally intriguing tale of
gall bladder surgery coming from a table across the way. ,
Now, I don't know about you, but I was raised to talk quietly while dining out,, not
everyone wants to hear about your private life, and particularly if it involves any body
part or things that are slimy, slithery, etc. And you certainly do not get up and dance in the
aisles, which is what patrons two tables down were doing, and they were not even good
dancers. They were having a Christmas party, and obviously had had just a wee bit too
much Christmas Cheer, even though it was only 3 p.m. I was becoming envious.
Now, our'food was terrific, but I did comment to our waitress about the ridiculous
behavior of most of the people .surrounding us, to which she was in total agreement.
Next thing I know, we were being served one of those wonderfully decadent desserts
(chocolate, Rick) at no charge. Yes! Vindicated.
We happily returned to the theater to see Twilight, the popular vampire movie that has
hypnotized every preteen and teenaged girl in the world. It's quite entertaining if you like
a cold, gloomy, dark atmosphere coupled with cold, gloomy, pale (very, very pale) people.
We were ecstatic to be there, her for the movie; me, for the relative peace and quiet and
the fact that my hands were no longer on the steering wheel. Life was good.

Fun things to do this week:
~~~t i -.5 .0,..' ^^ ^' :'":'-::". X,-'.^,'*


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editpr
In case you haven t heard, it's gonna be a chilly one this weekend. Temperatures
are expected to be down in the 20s Thuirsday and Friday nights and the 30s even-
i other night, warming up to a balmy 42 Monday night. You may be asking,. Wiat is this.
a weather report? I only bring it up because I know what I'1 be doing those days:
.snuggling up with a nice, long book. You may think about doing the same. Other
suggestions on ways to entertain yourself this week:

If reading isn't really your forte or you'd prefer being one with the weather,
a bonfire is always a great way to enjoy our rare cold fronts. It allows you to defy
the icy fingers' of Mother Nature by bundling up next to a hypnotic flame. Get the
..family together to roast some hot dogs and marshmallow's. Always practice fire safety,
however. I don't want'to be blamed for any rogue fires that get out of control.

.:;Y. Complete with.twin fiddles, Irish step dancing, classic country yodeling and
'more, Cherryholmes will present a mixture pfCeltic/bluegrass music and performance
'at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for Performing Arts in Gainesville Friday,'Jan. 16. This
six-member family, band from Nashville has shot to fame, winning the International


MWE CMI0IS M


Bluegrass Music Association's Entertainers of the Year in 2005. Tickets are between
$15 and $30. To see a clip of the band's performances, click on the link at http://
performingarts.ufl.ed/ilevents/2008/cherryholmes/. You won't be disappointed.

v Rosewood citizens or those just interested in a little local history may be
interested in attended "The Beginning That Never Ends...The Rosewood Traveling
Exhibition." The touring exhibit will be at the Main Gallery at the Thomas Center,
302 N.E. Sixth Ave., Gainesville. The exhibit will include photos, text,- quilts and
memorabilia and runs through Feb. 22. Entry is free.

The North Florida Division of Fishers of Men will sponsor The Levi and Parker
Bass Tournament on Saturday; Jan. 17, at the Hinton Landing in Old Town. It's not too
late to sign up to compete in the tournament. Even if you're not much of a fisherperson,
no doubt it will be a fun sight to see. Contact Director James Class at (352) 213-1550
if you need more information.
Now that the holidays are over. we 're finally getting back into the swing of things.
Opportunities for /im things to do abound. No matter what you decide to do this
weekend, the important thing is that you keep warm and have' a good time.

Eagles, Panthers tangle
The Newberry Lady Panthers visited Bronson Jan. 8 and came away with a hard-fought 4-0 win. The visitors got two first half goals from Shelby Dean and
never looked back in recording their fourth win of the season. The Lady Eagles gave Newberry all it could handle and at times looked as if they were ready
to get on the board. (Clockwise, from left) Melissa Nutt gets ready to makq a shot near the Newberry goal during first half action. Bronson goalie April Benka

Yankeetown tops

Bronson MS girls

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Yankeetown's Middle School gifls'
basketball team held off a last minute
charge by Bronson to win 31-27 last
week.
The Yankeetown girls carried a
narrow lead for most of the game, but
Bronson's Jasmine Parker tied the score
at, 25-25 with 2:12 left in the fourth
period.
Yankeetown's, Casey Billups
answered with a 2-point shot.
The Yankeetown girls went up by 4 in
the final minutes whenAngie Degennara
scored, but the Lady Eagles answered
with a shot from Alexis Jackson, leaving
the score 29-27.
A traveling call against Yankeetown
gave Bronson the ball, but Yankeetown's
Cierra Thompson picked Bronson's
pocket with a steal. The pass went to
Rachael Brinkerhoff, who scored with
35 seconds left, extendingYankeetown's
lead to 31-27.
Bronson was unable to recover from
the 4-ppint deficit.
"I was proud of them. That's the best
they've played off the- fast break in the
seven years I've been with the program,"
said Yankeetown Coach Chuck Gatton.
"They were aggressive and they ran the
floor well."
But Gatton said defense is what
won the game. He said the team was
aggressive on the defensive end of the
court.
Bronson Middle School Coach
Crystal Hubbard said her team played
very well. She said the team ran pick
and roll plays on offense and drove to
the basket well. She said Brittany Riley
improved on rebounding.
"And they had more trust in the
younger girls," she said, noting Jasmine
Parker scored 6 points.
Hubbard said the Lady Eagles are
learning as the season progresses and
playing better ball.

Williston girls hold off Newberry


By Ryan Butler
Correspondent ,

Surviving a fourth quarter in which they
were outscored 22-11, the Williston girls
basketball team fended' off Newberry 48-
47 Jan. 8 on their home court. With star
guard Erica Mason struggling with injuries
throughout the second half, fellow sophomore
guard Kae'etta Jackson scored a team high
17 points to help the Lady Devils fight off a
fanatical comeback by the Panthers.
'After a brutal third quarter offensively
where the teams combined for 13 points,
Williston appeared to hold a safe 12 point
lead going into the final period. But the
Panthers emerged from the third quarter, full
of frequent fouls and shouting between both
players and fans on opposing teams, with a
renewed energy. After two technical fouls
were called on the Panthers at the start of the
fourth and a coast-to-coast layup by a hobbled
Mason put them behind 42-29, NHS went on
a stunning 16-5 run in the fourth.
But then, up two with 11 seconds left,


Jackson made a free throw to put her team
up three. The extra point proved imperative
to the Lady Devils, as their opponents made
a long shot at the buzzer. However, the shot
was ruled to have taken off just in front of
the three point line, and the Panthers were
literally inches short of forcing overtime, and
with momentum on their side, likely taking
the win.
Williston started the second half up 30-
18. As they struggled down the stretch with
Mason clearly not at full strength, it became
apparent that the team was not as effective
without their leading scorer. "She's a leader,"
said head coach Jason Odom, "She sets
an example for our girls to follow." With
10 underclassman on a 12 person roster,
leadership has played an essential role on
the season. Fortunately for the Lady Devils,
Jackson was able to step up with her scoring
and ball distribution- in addition to big plays
when they mattered most.
This was the third meeting between the
two teams this season, with Williston beating
Newberry 48-47 at Newberry and Newberry


winning at the Eastside Holiday Tournament
54-52. The familiarity between the teams
was' evident throughout as frequently the
play more closely resembled hockey then
basketball. Both teams were repeatedly
called for hard fouls, and the player's bodies
hit the floor nearly as often as the ball.
The hard physical play took its tool on
players for each squad, but the struggle visibly
affected Mason. She had to limp.offthe court
in the second half after falling to the court,
and she routinely grabbed and flexed her leg
for the remainder of the game. Williston has
struggled with injuries,all season, but bruises
from the Newberry game aside, Coach Odom
has been optimistic with the team's health
and prospects down the stretch. "We're
getting healthy during the right time of the
year," said Odom, "We're jelling and getting
ready to make a play off run."
Against Newberry, along with Jackson's
17 and Mason's eight, Kene Mincey finished
second on the team with nine points. Asha
McDonald added six, and both Porcha
Robinson and Kim Dobbins both scored four.


Bronson boys defeat Bell in defensive contest


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's varsity boys' basketball team
jumped out to an 11-point lead over Bell
Saturday night and held off a fourth quarter
rally by Bulldogs for a 43-36 win in Bell.
The Eagles' heartless full court press in
the first period left Bell with just two points
on the board. The Bulldogs struggled to get
open shots amid the Bronson defenders.
Coach Aaron Haldeman said the team's
defense was almost where it should have been,
but he wants to see more "positional" defense
in the future, as well as playing hard.
Positional defense means the players
would use their feet to move into good
defensive positions rather than just reaching
with their hands.
"I like the way we played together,"
Haldeman added. "They looked like they
were having fun."
James Rivers had a big first quarter, hitting
a three point shot, shooting a technical foul
and taking a feed from Raymie Powers that
led to another score.
Virgil Greenlee added to Bell's misery
with a steal just before the buzzer to end the
first period.
Bronson began the second period like it
ended the first, with Powers making a steal
and feeding Kelby Barber for the score.


Bronson varsity player Raymie Powers
leaps to stop a pass by a Bell Bulldog.
Greenlee hit a jump shot to extend the Eagles'
lead to 13-2.
Bronson finished the half with a 21-12
lead, but Bell refused to quit. Bronson left
Bell's three point shooter, Jody Gray, wide
open twice during the third period, and he
made Bronson pay both times, narrowing
Bronson's lead to 34-28.
In the fourth period Bell mounted a fierce
offensive attack that nearly erased Bronson's
lead. Early in the fourth the score was 34-32


and Bell was on fire.
But Bronson's unyielding defense made
life miserable for the Bulldogs and eventually
quieted the Bell offensive attack.
Bronson was making the big plays on both
ends of the court.
When Bronson's Enrique Wiseman was
fouled with five minutes left in the fourth
period, Wiseman hit the first free throw
and missed the second, but Rivers got the
rebound. The Eagles took advantage of the
rebound and began to kill the clock. Bell
was patient for more than a minute, but was
forced to foul C.J. King. King got a shooter's
roll on both free throws to increase Bronson's
lead to 41-36
The next three minutes were a free for all,
with both teams battling defensively to keep
the other off the boards, but the inability of
Bell to score in those final minutes proved
costly.
With 20 seconds left, King stole the ball
and lost it, but Bell could not convert the
turnover into points.
Scoring:
Bronson James Rivers 18, C.J. King 8,
Kelby Barber 6, Zach Hamilton 4, Raymie
Powers 2, Virgil Greenlee 2, Thomas
Mitchem 2 and Enrique Wiseman 1.
Scoring by periods 9-12-13-9.
Bell James Thomas 18, Grayson Stewart 9,
Jody Gray 7, Chris Wilkerson 2.
