Bronson, Otter Creek


say no to joint fire dept.

Otter Creek's refusal to hand over $40, 000 in leftover
fire tax money causes much disagreement


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


SA proposed merger of the Bronson and
Otter Creek fire departments went down in
flames Monday.
Officials from both towns decided the
agreement wouldn't work and said it was
best for each town to go their separate
ways
"Both towns will be better off if we kill
the deal," said Bronson Councilman Berlon
Weeks at the Otter Creek Town Council
meeting. Weeks had represented Bronson
in the merger talks.
The merger would have placed the
Bronson Volunteer Fire Department in
charge of fighting fires for Otter Creek.
In exchange Otter Creek agreed to give
Bronson the annual $37,080 of county fire
tax revenue currently assigned to Otter
Creek.
The loss of the' merger means Otter
Creek has no fire department for the time
being, and Bronson will continue to answer,
fire calls in Otter Creek.
Town council members agreed to
Planning Consultant George Sandora's
offer to let Sandora rebuild the Otter Creek
Volunteer Fire Department from the ground
up. He said the town would first search for
a volunteer chief and later recruit and train
volunteers to staff the small department.
S Council members mentioned the name
of former Bronson Volunteer Fire Chief
Rick Lombardo as someone who has
the expertise to help the town rebuild
the department. Lombardo lives in Otter
Creek.


Much of the disagreement about the
merger centered on the $40,000 of leftover
fire tax money Otter Creek has in reserve.
Bronson officials wanted to use the money
to repair the Otter Creek fire truck and hire
a firefighter to man the. fire station in the
town of 130 people.
Otter Creek Town Council members
were opposed to giving up the money.
They said Bronson could take the annual
$37,080, but not the fire funds in reserve.
Sandora had harsh words for Bronson
officials after they left the meeting.
"We bent over backwards and they got
greedy," Sandora said.
Weeks had reminded council members
that their fire truck was in bad shape. He
said the transmission and brakes need work
and the tires are in bad shape.
"You have to put out your foot to stop
it."
Bronson Volunteer Fire 'Chief Scott
Bulson said they had planned to use the
$40,000 to repair the fire truck and provide.
one firefighter for the city.
Otter Creek Town Council members
agreed with Weeks that the negotiations
probably should have been handled in face-
to-face general meetings between the two
towns with lawyers present.
In other business. Mayor,, Cleah
Martin and Rose Severino presented
Councilwoman -Marie Murray with a'
framed resolution from the Florida League
of Cities commending her for more than
20 years of dedicated service as a council
member in Otter Creek.

mentally handicapped family member


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Three members of a Bronson family were arrested by
the sheriffs office Jan. i4 on charges of abusing a mentally
handicapped family member who lives with them.
An arrest report said the victim told sheriffs deputies he
was handcuffed or tied to posts, struck with fists and whipped
with a belt by family members. The report said the- victim
was undernourished and bore scars and lacerations when
examined at a Gainesville hospital.
Candace P. Sanderford,60, and her husband Kenneth
Wilbur Sanderford, 52, 425 Marshburn Drive, were arrested
on charges of neglecting a disabled adult. A third family
member, Johnny Ray Sanford, 34 same address was arrested
for domestic battery, false imprisonment and abuse of a
disabled adult.
The report said Candace and Kenneth Sanderford live at
425 Marshburn Drive with Kenneth's brother Donald and a
second brother, the victim. The victim identified Johnny Ray
Sanderford as a nephew. .

charged.
The sheriff's office received a complaint alleging a mentally
handicapped man living at the home had told ofbeing chained
to the floor. The person who complained said the handicapped
man had a sore on his buttocks that looked like gangrene may
have set in.
Cpl. Wilburn Wells conducted a wellness check and found
the man to be in a weakened state. The deputy said the victim
had marks, sores and lacerations on his wrist. He complained
of feeling faint and having chest pains. The deputy noticed
he had a black eye. The victim said his nephew, Johnny Ray
Sanderford, had punched him in the eye.
The victim said the marks and scars on his wrists were
from handcuffs used to hook him to a post in the kitchen area
of the home. He said a rope had also been used to tie him to
the post. The victim also reported that his brother Kenneth
struck him and restrained him to the post with handcuffs. He
said his cousin, Johnny Ray Sanderford, has hit.him with a
closed fist, blackening his eye.
Donald Sanderson confirmed that his brother had been the
target of abuse by other family members. His statement to
deputies supported the allegations made by the victim.

H heroes sometimes come in small packages, like Justin Grant.
The 10-year-old. Bronson Elementary School fourth grader
saved his family on Jan. 14 by alerting them to a fire he
discovered in their home.
Justin's parents and younger sister were asleep that night when he
discovered the kitchen was full of black smoke. He woke his parents. The
family escaped the mobile home. The family could have suffocated on the
smoke or been burned if the fire had spread.
Justin received the Golden Eagle Egg Award at a BES awards ceremony
Tuesday. His parents and Bronson Fire Chief Scott Bulson were there to'
watch. The award is given to students who go above and beyond to help
others.
"The whole point is that Justin was thinking of others. The award is for
going out of your way to help someone," said Assistant Principal Michael
Roman. "He's a good kid. He's not your typical straight-A student, but
he's a good kid and we like to see him get recognition."

Puppies abandoned in cold weather

Another batch found near golf course

Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Fourteen puppies were found abandoned alongside CR-
339A, also known as Blue Springs Road, outside of Bronson
Jan. 14.
Afterreceiving a complaint onthe puppies, Sgt. Carl Rogers
with the Levy County Sheriff's Office found and approached
the estimated four- to five-week-old puppies. According to a
sheriff's office press release, the puppies were happy to see
Sgt. Rogers and ran up to him and licked his face.
' It's believed that if the puppies had not been found, they
would've frozen that night when temperatures reached the
low 30s.
- The puppies were taken to and held at the Levy County
Animal Services until Saturday, when the Humane Society
of Inverness arranged to pick them up, spay/neuter them and
find them homes.
' Levy County Animal Services Director David Weatherford
said the 14 were the second batch of puppies found last week,
the first being a trained, sweet-natured mother dog they
named Maggie and her five young puppies that were near the
Chiefland Golf and Country Club. Gainesville Pet Rescue has
taken Maggie and her puppies.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office is investigating the
abandonment of the Jpuppies, a third-degree felony, which
could result il five years in prison and up to a $5,000 fine if
convicted, according to Capt. Evan Sullivan with the sheriff's
office. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's
office at (352) 486-5111.
If interested in giving one (or more) of the 14 puppies a good
home, call the Humane Society of Inverness at (352) 344-5207.


Top: Fourteen puppies that were found abandoned
outside of Bronson last week were sheltered at

and her five puppies were also found last week.

School Board workshop assesses budget crunch


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Levy County School Board held a special budget
workshop last Thursday to discuss how to make up the
deficit of$1 million in the school budget.
According to Florida Statute Section 1011.051,
district school boards are required to maintain a general
fund balance of 3 percent of the projected general fund
revenues for the fiscal year.
A maximum of $1,785,193.09 is needed to stay at the
required 3 percent, said School Board Director of Finance
Bob Clemons.
If at any time the general fund falls below 3 percent,
the superintendent is required to provide a written
notification to the school board and the Commissioner of


Education. "

projected general fund revenues during the current fiscal
year, written notification is again required and if the
commissioner determines that the school board has not
developed a plan to avoid a financial emergency, "the
commissioner shall appoint a financial emergency board,"
according to the statute.
In other words, expressed Levy County School Board
Superintendent Bob Hastings, find out who to fire.
In attendance at the budget workshop were school
board members Rick Turner, Frank Etheridge, Beth
Davis, Paige Brookins; Superintendent Bob Hastings;
School Board Director of Finance Bob Clemons, School
Board Director of Personnel Candy Dean; and Assistant
Superintendent Jeff Edison.,
Among the items discussed to reduce the budget
included: recover roll-forward school house budget
(money left over from the school's supplies budget),
eliminate additional class from high school class
schedules, eliminate overtime for staff, leave unfilled
positions unfilled, adjust salary schedule.
One proposal that seemed to answer the question of
where over $500,000 could come from was to negotiate
with teachers to take three days off without pay. However,
state law requires in their contracts that teachers must
work a minimum of 196 days. In Levy County, teachers
are working 196 days. Taking three days off would put
them below the minimum and, thus, the proposal was


called off, Hastings said.
Other proposals included: reducing field trips (trips
may only be taken on a curriculum basis), reduce summer
school, consolidate bus routes, postpone the purchase of.
five buses, middle school athletics must provide own
transportation.
The final two proposals that, if enacted, would push the:
budget where it needs to be are either to reduce salaries
or reduce staff.
Hastings ,and Clemons said they'd rather not have to,
send people home, so the proposal that made the most,
sense was the reduction in salaries by 1 to 2 percent,
which would amount to between $357,000 and $500,000,
This is a move that the school board administration cannot
make on its own, as it will require the negotiation with,
the teachers and union.
Hastings said a professional negotiator will need to be
hired to work everything out.
Clemons said negotiations could start taking place in.
February.
Every school board member was in agreement that
if faculty's salary was reduced, they would agree to a,
reduction in their salaries as well.
Hastings said whichever budget, proposals were
adopted, they would take effect for the current fiscal year,
only and would have to be reassessed next year.


Bronson Middle/High School receives award


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Bronson Middle/High School received silver recognition
for being a model school Tuesday morning at the Levy
County School Board meeting.
Jenna Pollard, coordinator of the University of South
Florida Positive Behavior Support Project, presented the
banner recognizing the school's achievement and spoke
about what the award means.
Florida's Positive Behavior Support Project was enacted
to help schools increase academic performance and decrease
problem behavior, .among other things, in order to reach a
full positive educational experience.
Pollard said 75 percent of Levy County schools are
currently implemented as Positive Behavior Support (PBS)
schools, which, she said is a high amount. In order to be
implemented, schools must meet specific criteria: achieve
a score of 80 or above in Benchmarks of Quality; produce
data indicating school-wide positive behavior progress; have
a written recommendation from the district coordinator and
confirmation by PBS staff; complete a thorough application
and submit artifacts; complete an on-site walkthrough by
PBS coach or district coordinator.
School must also demonstrate innovative, creative,
functional ways of supporting positive behavior in the
school, she said.
The awards range from bronze to silver to gold.
Valerie Boughanem, Bronson Middle/High School
principal, said after the school board meeting that she is


very excited about the award and has noticed a difference in'
behavior throughout the school.
When Bronson first implemented PBS three years ago,
there were three major areas of concern: tardies, skipping;
class, and disrespect, Boughanem said. Now disrespect is
the only concern left.
She said they are teaching replacement behaviors to the
students to help with the disrespect.
"Basically, we're making sure students understand
appropriate behaviors to counteract inappropriate behavior,"
she said.
She said next year she'd like the school to shoot for the
gold.
The school board was given not' one but two reasons to
be proud of their school. Dr. Rosalind Hall, who is the PBS
district coordinator and Levy County .SchqolBoprd ESE
Director, presented Bronson Middle/High School with a.
check for $500 from the ESE and Student Services Board.
Another hot topic at the board meeting, but not nearly as
positive as Bronson's achievement, was the budget cuts of
$1 million that must be made this school year.
Hastings briefly summarized the school board budget
workshop held Jan. 15.
He said he wanted to stress that all expenditures are being
examined.
Field trips are being limited to curriculum-based trips
only and athletic games are being reduced to the minimum,
he said.
However, School Board members Frank Etheridge and
Rick Turner asked whether trips that are made at no cost to
the school board, via parent contributions and transportation,

Veterans service officer cites homeless as unmet need


$31 million in benefits being

distributed in 2007.

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

,-i Levy County's Veteran's Service Officer Mike Engel
'$said Tuesday 25 to 30 homeless veterans are on the streets
of Levy County every month and there is a need for a
homeless shelter for the veterans.
Engel spoke at the Levy County Commission meeting
about the gains his department has made in providing-
services to Levy County veterans, but he also listed the
unmet needs.
Commissioners thanked him for his presentation, but
*made no promises.
Engel said his office has developed a "comprehensive
system" to better serve veterans. The system's efficiency
resulted in $31 million in veterans' benefits being distributed
in Levy County in 2007, a record.
, Engel said 378 new clients were served in 2008. The
,total number of veterans served by the office has reached
1,921.
Among the office's accomplishments were a Veteran's
'.Day Parade, the use of Nature Coast Transit to transport
veterans to medical appointments and the creation of a


Hero, from Page 1A
On the night of the fire, Justin awoke because he heard
a thump against the wall and his throat was scratchy. The
thump was probably his sister's foot hitting the wall. The.
scratchy throat was apparently from the smoke. He went to
;see what was happening.
The kitchen and hallway of the single-wide mobile home
was filling with smoke by then. Justin found it difficult to
see in the kitchen. He decided to ask his parents Stephanie
and Randy Goodman why the stove and kitchen were full
-of smoke. It was about 10:15 p.m. to 10:30, p.m. when he
arrived at their bedside.
"I said what the heck is the smoke about? Are you
cooking or what?" Jutstin recalled.
The Goodman's saw a smoky haze in the air. Randy
:climbed out of bed to investigate. When he opened the
dodr to the hallway, it was filled with smoke. He went to
;the kitcheniand saw smoke billowing from the,,qyen. He
,could, see ,flame,-insidej ,Whenheiopened the Adorvof (the
oven, a six- to eight-foot flame shot out. -. rfir.K -
Stephanie quickly escorted Justin outside and scrambled
back to the bedroom of Justin's eight-year-old sister,
Cheyenne Evans. She was dead asleep. Stephanie woke
her daughter and escorted her out of the trailer while Randy
attempted put out the fire. Stephanie called 9-1-1 from her
mother's house next door.
Randy left the trailer when he realized he wasn't
making progress and the smoke was making it impossible
to breathe. The Bronson Volunteer Fire Department arrived'
'six minutes after they received the alarm.
Fire Chief Scott Bolson and fireman Tony Holthans.
disconnected the propane tank before going inside. They
"discovered the fire had extinguished itself. The department
used an infrared monitor to scan the home for signs of a
:fire. but found no flames. The interior of the home was
choked with thick black smoke. The firefighters used fans
to ventilate the mobile home. '
"The fire department kept telling, me, if it hadn't been
for Justin, we wouldn't be here," Stephanie said.
Bulson said Justin did very Well and he was pleased that
he was able to remain calm and go to his parents' bedside

research and self-help station equipped with computer and
scanner for veterans.
Engel has found a veteran willing to donate 1.5 acres for
a homeless shelter. He said mental help is also needed for
incarcerated veterans, and a female coordinator is needed
to work with female veterans. Often they won't discuss
certain types of trauma with a man.
He said the veteran's service office needs a vehicle. He
said it would save hundreds of dollars or perhaps thousands
by not having to reimburse him for travel.
Engel said the veterans need a larger office or their own
building. He said the current office affords veterans no
privacy and is not wheelchair or walker friendly. Females
are reluctant to visit the office due to the graphic nature of
their claims and the lack of privacy.
In other business, commissioners were told the
county's budget wasn't as bad as predicted in the first three
months of the budget year, but it wasn't necessarily full of
good news either.
Sheila Rees, who works for Clerk of Circuit Court Danny
Shipp on the county's budget, gave a brief presentation to
commissioners about the positives and negatives of the
budget for the first three months of the 2008-09 year, which
began in October.
Shipp's office is tracking the budget to determine
if revenues are in line with expenditures. The county is
concerned about the likelihood of decreasing revenues in a
recessionary economy.


to warn them. He said the fire department goes to local
schools and teaches children what to do if they find a fire.
They are told not to try to put it out, but to notify an adult.
That's what Justin did. His mother said .she had taught
him the same skills.
"It wouldn't have been much longer before the property
would have caught fire," Bulson said.
A mobile home can be engulfed by fire in five to 10 minutes.
Stephanie wanted recognition for her son. She believes
he earned it.
"For him to do something this heroic, I want him to be
recognized," she said. "He's my hero. My son saved my life."

Shipp found that some revenues were higher than
expected in areas such as building permits, fines and
forfeitures, state shared revenue, federal payment in lieu of
taxes and miscellaneous revenue. Estimated revenues were
up in those categories by a total of $147,802.
On the negative side, the early findings show the county
spent $440,714 more than it received in revenues during
the first three months. Rees said the spending wasn't a
surprise. Everyone was expecting it, even -though the
county cut expenses in last year's budget process.
The problem the county faces is that its reserves. are
being eaten up by the spending.
Commissioners watched as Claude Blackburn
bestowed the title of Kentucky Colonel on County
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell, her parents, Elvira
and Arthur Westbury, Sheriff's Office Maj. Mike Sheffield
and Capt. Evan Sullivan. The title is considered a high
honor and is awarded to people who have given their lives
to serving others in various ways.
Bonnie Tollefson, the county's library director,
resigned effective Feb. 27.
Commissioners approved the purchase of an F-750
rollback vehicle. The tow truck vehicle can carry disabled
Nature Coast Transit vehicles and ambulances. County
Coordinator Freddy Moody said the cost is $61,800. He
said the vehicle will come in handy with the aging fleet of
ambulances that can break down on highways.

Sometimes I


drink too


much coffee

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I traveled to Tallahassee over the past weekend, and
while there I bought a
cup of coffee at a very

such beverages. I asked them
to make it as strong as they
possibly could, and they did
so. It was like three cups of
coffee all rolled into one..
I drank it in less than a
minute, and then made the
following observations: -
M While there are certainly
those among us who are exceptions, we Floridians litter
as much as any group of people on the planet. Drive up
and down US 19 and you will see what I mean. Empty
six pack containers. Paper bags. Cans. Bottles. You
name it. Levy County is bad, and Dixie County is just .
as much so. I go to a boat ramp on CR 317 in Dixie
quite often, and I would venture to say that there is more
garbage alongside that road than any other road of equal
length in the state. There is something seriously wrong
with a person who would tarnish the most beautiful
natural resources in the world. How much effort does
it require to take the garbage home and throw it in the
trash can instead of tossing it out the window while
driving down the road?
How can you make an assessment of George W.
Bush and leave out the fact that we were not attacked
again by terrorists after 9-1-1 during his presidency?
Are our memories so short that we have forgotten what
it felt like on Sept. 11, 2001? The man made a vow that
day to keep us safe and sound the rest of the way, and
then went out and did it. Anyone who does not give Mr.
Bush'credit for that must have been dropped on his head
shortly after birth. Or a member of the liberal media. Or
both. Probably both.
I have a fairly strong hunch that some of theqoople.
who place little or no importance on national security.
are going to wake up one day without it, and at that
point are going to see the Bush presidericy in a totally
different light.
I lived for a short time in Vermont. I bet that if I
went back up there and started doing presentations on
the War Between the States, and dressed up in costumes
from that era,:it might be a good thing. But if I made
stuff up and passed it off as fact, they'd probably laugh
me off the stage. I'm just saying.
I have never believed in high taxes, so President
Obama's proposed tax cuts are a good thing. But I
would have more respect for the whole plan if he would
go ahead and call it what it is a handout. What else
would you call a rebate check for someone who never
paid taxes in the first place?
I believe in school spirit as much as the next guy,
but methinks that someone at Chiefland High School
should rethink some of the hoopla that went along
with the games against Dixie County on Friday. Some
situations are explosive enough on their own without the
added adrenaline generated by a prep rally and a student
cheering section. School spirit and school pride are
nice things to have, but that situation almost got out of
control. Nice new uniforms though.
I have eaten in a lot of different area restaurants,
and have been served by a good many waitresses along
the way. Sissy of Huddle House beats them all. She
knows what you want before you want it, and delivers
it with a smile. And the coffee there is strong, just like I
like it.

George W Bush a view from the left


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


t must be difficult to be president.
I sometimes wonder how anyone can stand to.be
in the job. For those who do take the nation's highest
political office, the fishbowl analogy is appropriate. Being
president is like living in a glass fishbowl. Every breath
and move of the president is analyzed into paralysis,
I thiik we all know by now the president isn't
responsible for everything that happens to the United
States or in it, but the president has enormous powers.
When Bill Clinton -vas president, Congress made the
mistake of adding to those powers by giving the president
line item veto power.
The president can literally hold federal legislation at
bay with the threat of a veto, or he can make it go away
with a veto. The president apparently has war making
powers, or at least some presidents think they do. But
they can't spend money on war without congressional
approval.
I think every president should get a report card after
they leave office. They should be judged based on what
happened while they held office, legislative action taken,
international diplomatic accomplishments, economic
events and achievements that benefited the nation or
hurt the nation. They should also be judged on how they
behaved in office, and whether they were dictatorial or
just the opposite.
If .you look at Bush as a man, he ran a pretty clean
house. He and his wife and children managed to stay
out of personal trouble for the entire presidency. His
daughters had a couple of minor scrapes as college
girls, but nothing to write home about. From a family
standpoint, the Bush bunch was a relatively buttoned
down conservative family, the type you might expect to
see in the White House.
But historians will also look at the eight years Bush
was president in terms of what happened. During
that time, the United States mainland was hit by its
first major military attack. I am referring to the 9-1-1
terrorist attacks. Those attacks were followed by wars
in Afghanistan and Iraq, the highest gasoline and oil


Letter to


prices in the history of the nation, and last but not least, a
major economic recession in the final few months of his
presidency.
Maybe some of it was bad timing and he just happened
to be president when events occurred. If that's the case,
he is probably the unluckiest president in history. But
there were so many bad things happening during Bush's
administration that two members of my immediate family,
both of them rock solid conservatives, had nothing good
to say about Bush toward the end of his second term.
They weren't in love in Barack Obama either, but they
thought less of Bush. That's how bad it got.
Historical revisionists will write books about this
president. Some will paint him as the most miserably
inept president in the history of the United States. Others
will cast him as a man who faced some of the most
difficult situations in the country's history and didn't get
us all killed.
I was never a big fan of President Bush. I voted once
for his dad, Bush Sr., and once for Ronald Reagan,
but there was something about the Texas swagger of
President George W. Bush that made me wonder about
him. When he went to war in Afghanistan, I. supported the
decision and still do. But I felt the invasion of Iraq was a
waste. History will prove me right or wrong.
Now that Obama has taken office, he will swim into
the same fishbowl once inhabited by Bush. Obama and
his family won't be able to wiggle without the national
news media and the opposing political party analyzing
every move. It's the nature of being the leader of the free world.
I do like the fact that Obama plans to build a basketball
court somewhere in the White House. I've heard it will
replace the bowling alley. And he plans to let his mother-
in-law live in the fishbowl with him and the family. I
like the idea that he respects tradition and sees the older
generation as having value. Tradition is being lost in this
country.
I guess we'll have to wait to see how many wars he
starts and ends, how he deals with health care, if he deals
with Social Security, how he handles Iran and Hamas and
myriad other issues, before we can write Obama's legacy
and give him a report card. The learning curve is steep in
the White House. Class is in session come Tuesday.


the Editor


-For the record:
It has now become necessary that I make this statement
concerning my decision to terminate Mrs. Mary Golding.
My hope was that this situation would not have to be aired
out in the media, for the sake of how this situation can
damage the reputations of myself, the office, and Mrs.
Golding. I myself have worked hard over the past years to be
involved in the community and to lead a life that I hope will
draw honor and glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
because he is worthy.
By law I do not have to give a reason for termination of
any employee and in this particular situation I have chosen
not to respond other than exactly what I told Mrs. Golding,
and that was that I did not have confidence or trust in her.
I regret that Mr. Carnegie and Mr. Sanders, as
representatives of the NAACP, have chosen to have a press
conference and make statements that are absolutely false and
slanderous. These actions on their behalf have placed a cloud
over my reputation with some of the youth in Chiefland


community that I do sincerely have much love for. But this
too will pass and I will continue to serve and love because
this is what my Lord has commanded me to do.
I must make it clear to the citizens of Levy County that I
in no way ever made statements or promises to anyone that
I was going to fire Mrs. Golding or anyone else. I felt that to
do such a thing as that would be inappropriate and against
my character, and that was my response each and every time
that the subject was brought up to me.
My actions were not in any way political and most
definitely were not racial. I do not have a racially prejudiced
bone in my body. I believe in equal opportunity for all
people. The Bible says that God made man in his image
and also that God loves us all so very much that he sent his
son to die for our sins. It does not distinguish us by our skin
color, but does say that "Who so ever will believe shall be
saved."

Assistant Editor

Who could ever forget Santa atop an elephant for the Williston Christmas parade? That
was Levy County's first taste ofAll About Elephants, an educational program by the Two
Tails Ranch in Williston.
About 100 people were at the Two Tails Ranch in Williston Thursday night for -
the second-taste of All About Elephants. Attendees of the mixers got to see a private- -
educational animal show, which turned out not to be all about elephants with other animals
such as a tiger, war horses, camels, a giant tortoise and more
Ranch owner Patricia Zerbini, whose family has been in the elephant training business
for nine generations, has decided to open up her 'ranch as an educational program for
school groups and small parties to instill awareness about the animals.
Visitors were first introduced to Marie, a 30-year-old, 9,000-pound Asian female.
elephant.
Since elephants feel the cold the same as humans, they were kept inside barns until.
they were needed. As Marie emerged from the barn, ooos and aaahs rippled throughout
the crowd.
Zerbini's son Anthony instructed the elephant by verbal commands, and soon Marie,
was raising one foot for her first trick and then making the long descent to the ground to
lie on her side for the second, and then rolling back up to sit on her hind legs for the third.
Zerbini said lying down is the hardest trick to teach an elephant because it is the most.'
vulnerable position for them.
Marie was shown back inside and then Luke, the 11,900-pound artistic male elephant,,
was brought out to showcase his painting skills.
A loaded paintbrush was given to Luke, and he held it with his trunk and made strokes.,,
on a canvas held by Zerbini's friend and volunteer at the ranch, Carin Cristiani.
Ken Schwiebert was so impressed with the painting ofblue, orange and green, he offered,.
Zerbini $50 for it and posed for a picture with his new artwork next to the 'elephant.
Guests also got to see two zebras, a 70-year-old giant tortoise, a tiger, ostriches, camels,
.and as a special treat, a presentation of a Lipizzaner horse by Zerbini's long-time friend,
Linda Hermman. Lipizzaner horses, originally from Vienna, Austria, were trained as war
horses to kick and buck on command.
As the sun began to go down and the temperature dropped even more, guests were
grateful to be able to go into a large blue tent for refreshments. Small groups were shown,
the new All About Elephants museum with fossils, artifacts and souvenirs.
Patty Griffith, a first-grade teacher at Joyce Bullock Elementary School, said she very
much enjoyed her evening with the animals and hopes she'll be able to get together a field.
trip to the ranch for her students.
"It's awesome," she said. "It's the perfect place for kids to take a field trip for hands-on
experience. It's organized. It's educational. Kids get to see how you work with animals.:
up close."
Zerbini said despite the cold, she was pleased with the mixer and hopes everyone,
learned something and enjoyed themselves.
SShe sa anyone is welcome to make an appointment to come out to the ranch and see
the animals -'homeschoolers, retiremp cpgr9munities, students, etc.-Cost depends on the
size and requirements of each group.
"At this point, my main goal is to educate the people," she said. "I just want to make,
sure the people who do come out have a nice experience and learn something. People really
enjoy being able to get up close to the animals. It's not rushed. It's not commercialized. I;
want to keep it a very quaint and relaxed environment."

Wrecker operators learn science of lifting disabled vehicles
Story and photo by Terry Witt ,
Staff W riter '' -. ( 1 ... .


"You may want to move. You're in the kill zone."
Dave Lambert directed his comments at a reporter who had strolled innocently near a
taut tow truck cable attached to a crumpled car in downtown Bronson Saturday.
He wasn't joking.
Lambert was the primary instructor at a North American Towing Academy course
sponsored by the Professional Wrecker Operators of Florida.
The main thrust of the course was to teach tow truck operators how to remove a
wrecked car or pickup truck from the highway without injuring themselves or others.
The kill zone is the area around the tow truck's cable when it is hooked to a disabled
or wrecked vehicle. If the cable hook were to snap loose, the cable would fly around like
a heavy sledgehammer, potentially injuring anyone in its path.
"The kill zone is all over the recovery area," Lambert said. "If that hook lets go, where
is it going?"
Bronson Volunteer Fire Chief Scott Bulson arranged for the. site of the class across
from Bronson City Hall. Tow truck drivers emerged from the course with a certificate.
The Professional Wrecker Operators of Florida want the Florida Legislature to pass
a law requiring certification of tow truck operators, according to Spike Kent of JAM
Towing and Transport in Bronson. Kent is a director for the PWOF.
Attempts to pass legislation requiring certification of tow truck operators in Florida
failed in the Florida House of Representatives, KIent said. But PWOF is undeterred. He
said the organization can clearly see the benefit of trained tow truck operators.
"If a gasoline tanker rolls over on your wife's car and she's pinned, you want someone
S there who won't accidentally kill her," Kent said. "We teach, don't take shortcuts, and do
it with the right technique."
He said the law requiring certified operators will be resubmitted to the Florida
Legislature.
Lambert showed wrecker operators how to use the seatbelts in. a car to turn a car right.
, I


Three students watch Dave Lambert rig the chains on the bottom of the
car in preparation for rolling it right side up.

side up safely. The tow truck cable is attached to the seatbelt through the window and care
is taken to slowly tighten the cable and gradually roll the vehicle back over.
Everyone must back away from the kill zone before the cable is allowed to be
tightened.
Steve Cole with Elite Towing and Ultimate Towing in Gainesville, said he has'been
doing this type of work for a year, but he learned quite a bit.
"I've learned a lot today. I've never done roll over's," he said.

NOTICE OF RULE DEVELOP-
MENT: Southwest Florida Water
Management District, Chapter
40D-4.091, Florida Administra-


tiye Code (F.A.C.), Publications
and Agreements .Incorporated
by Reference, and the District's
Environmental Resource Permit
Information Manual, Part B, Ba-
sis of Review (BOR).
Summary of Rule Develop-
ment:
,Mitigation bankers are required
to demonstrate financial respon-
sibility sufficient to ensure that


funds will be available to the
District to complete construction
of a mitigation bank and per-
petually manage the mitigation
bank if the banker abandons the
bank.
To determine the amount of
financial responsibility the Dis-
trict's current rule requires the
mitigation banker to develop
cost estimates. One of the ele-
ments that must be included in
developing a cost estimate for
the perpetual maintenance of a
mitigation bank is "taxes". The
taxes referred to are property
taxes and are included so that
if the mitigation banker has con-
veyed a conservation easement
to the District and fails to pay
the property taxes, the District's
conservation easement interest
in the mitigation bank cannot
be extinguished if the mitigation
bank property is sold for taxes. -
'In 2007 the Legislature
amended Section 197.572,
Florida Statutes, to provide that
when any lands are sold for the
nonpayment of taxes or pursu-
ant to, any tox lien foreclosure
proceeding the title to the lands
shall continue to be subject to
any easement for conservation
purposes. This amendment ren-
ders the inclusion of taxes as an
element of the cost estimate for
perpetual maintenance unnec-
essary and staff is proposing to
delete this requirement from the
District's rules.

TACTED REGARDING THE
PROPOSED RULES AND A

Story and photos by Anna Suggs
; ,A Assistant Editor .

- was there ever any doubt that the seniors at Chiefland
: High School's Rebound Week pep rally would beat out the
underclassmen in spirit and skill? No.
Students dressed in mismatched clothing and some with
their boxers on the outside of their clothing gathered at the
CHS; gym on "Wacky Tacky" Wednesday to cheer on the
A-.. -1"7basketball teams against rival Dixie County on Friday.
Seniors Chase Hore, the student government president;,
Sand Zach Tyson, Fellowship of Christian Athletes president,
Acted as emcees and first introduced the teams. Next the JV
and varsity cheerleaders took the court to get their peers
.pumped up.
The seniors showed off their superior skills in a
basketball 3-pointer shootout against the other classes.
Two students from each class were allowed one minute to
make as many 3-pointers as they could. The seniors beat
S the juniors, 5-3.
V 'The next activity, 'and probably the most entertaining
Sfor the audience, was the presentation of the CHS Ultimate,
/ 'l .Fan. Teachers volunteered to outfit themselves as Chiefland
Indian fans, complete with face paint, feathers and more,
and the crowd cheered for whoever they liked the best.

seniors had the most spirit and, therefore, won. The last activity of the day before the students went
-. home was a noise competition. Each class was separated
in the stands and was given turns to see who could cheer
S.I Dthe loudest. It came as no surprise, as students on shoulders
-and a cymbal was brought out, that the seniors won by a
Wtlandslide.

Running over Dixie



Chiefland takes two of three


from Bears in heated rivalry


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

At times it was not easy. At times it was not pretty.
But in the end, Chiefland's boys varsity basketball
team had claimed an important district victory over-
a heated arch-rival Friday at Chiefland.
The 63-44 win over Dixie County came before
a packed house in the Chiefland High School
Gymnasium, and it came with the Indians wearing
new uniforms.
But it wasn't easy. And it wasn't pretty.
Nursing a 28-24 lead to begin the third quarter, the
Indians produced a 9-2 run that made it 37-26, and
the visiting Bears never recovered. Dixie County got
to within seven at 42-35 to begin the fourth quarter,
but the Indians won going away behind a barrage of
shots from Eugene Carter and Cantrell Richardson.
Tempers flared both on the court and in the stands.
Dixie County's Rodney Scott drew a personal foul
for throwing elbows in the second half, and the game
was halted several minutes later as two fans fought
behind the Chiefland bench.
Chiefland trailed for virtually all of the first
quarter," but took a 17-15 lead on a 3-point shot.
by Marquise Jackson with 12 seconds left. Dixie
County's Rodney Scott. countered with an inside
basket off an offensive rebound moments later to tie
the game at 17.
Carter and Richardson came alive in the second
quarter, scoring nine of their team's 11 points.
Carter opened it with a 3-pointer from the right side,
and Richardson finished it, grabbing an offensive
rebound and putting it back in for a basket moments
before the half ended.
Carter.finished with 17 points, while Richardson
scored 15 and Stephen Davis 14. Jackson added 7,
followed by Donnell, Sanders with 6. Josh Wasson
picked :up 3 in the game, while Reggie McClendon
added 2.
Teven Henderson paced Dixie County with 15
points, while Scott added 13. Lord Hart managed 8,
while Terry Smith scored 5.
Junior Varsity Indians 52, Dixie County 35
Trent Perryman and Bo Beauchamp provided a
considerable one-two punch for the junior varsity
Indians earlier in the evening, pacing their team to a
double-digit win over the outnumbered JV Bears.

Williston's Paul King puts pressure on NewDerry's Jonn
Robinson midway through the third quarter.

Williston gets past Newberry
Paul King scored 17 points to lead Williston to a 51-46 win over
Newberry in district basketball action Tuesday at Newberry.
The Red Devils trailed for the entire third quarter and half of
the fourth. They took the lead on two free throws by Isaac Floyd
with three minutes left. Floyd hit two more before King took over,
knocking down a key 3-pointer from the right side with 2 minutes
remaining. He would add four free throws in the remaining moments
as Williston improved to 14-6 with the win. (Rick Burnham)


Chiefland's Bo Beauchamp takes a shot over
Dixie County's AJ Yarrell in JV action.
Beauchamp. scored 7 first-quarter points as
" hiefland jumped to a 19-4 lead after one period'.
The assault continued in the second quarter, and
Perryman led the way, scoring 4 points in the period.

m Cedar Key celebrates Homecoming


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Cedar Key High School celebrated its homecoming
Friday night, with Samantha Beckham and Steven
Poole selected as the homecoming queen and king.
The crowning of Cedar. Key royalty was part of a
four-game night of basketball. The varsity boys and
girls lost to MeadowbrookAcademy, a private Christian
school from Ocala, while the middle school boys beat
Yankeetown. The middle school girls lost in a squeaker
to Yankeetown.
It was apparent from the beginning of the varsity
girls' game that the Cedar Key girls were going to have
problems with the Lady Mustangs. Meadowbrook won
61-28,.
The Lady Mustangs took a first period 19-2 lead
before Cedar Key's P. Littlefield hit a 3-point shot. But
the Lady Mustangs continued to expand their lead with
a tight defense and sound shooting from inside and
outside.
In the fourth period the Lady Sharks tightened theit
defensive net and matched the Lady Mustang scoring
for a time, but Meadowbrook found its feet again and
began pouring in points.
In the varsity boys' game, the point spread was
considerably smaller in the first half. Meadowbrook led
25-12 in a defensive battle. Cedar Key fought to keep
the Mustangs, with their height advantage, from taking
control of the game, but eventually the Mustangs broke
away.
There was plenty of contact in the game. The Sharks
never quit, something first-year Coach Mark Jackson
appreciated. But the final score wound up 60-25.
"They played hard. We were pretty much outmatched


by that team," Jackson said.
Jackson said the Cedar Key varsity is improving;
but they lack outside shooting. The Mustangs were
able to camp out in a tight zone offense because the
Sharks couldn't hit from the outside.
Jackson said it will take a good summer program
to give the Sharks an opportunity to compete against
high caliber basketball programs. He said they can
learn a lot by competing against good teams during
the summer.
Jackson said he is optimistic.
"It's been tough at times, but I've heard a few good
things, too," he said.

loe Cabin Queters


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Jan.
15, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We
had many visitors, some from Williston and
some from Chiefland.
Last Friday we traveled to Tampa to
the Fair and got everything taken care of.
Yesterday, four traveled down to do some
judging and what a great day we had. It was
3 p.m. before it was all done but it was lots
of fun. Our next trip on the bus will be Feb.
10 to see if we won any ribbons. The bus is
full now unless someone can't go and then
we could take one or two.
Greg and five boys were out Tuesday


and helped to put the quilt booth back in
place. They also did a lot of other things.
Thanks, Lancaster.
We will take it easy for a while now and
take care of the plants on the porch so they
won't freeze.
Lunch today was kraut and chicken
dogs, turnips, cheese casserole, slaw, potato
pancakes, chicken casserole, meatballs,
biscuits, cake, brownies, lemon pie, pecan
cream pie, fudge, and lemon bars.

ESCAPING THE VORTEX OF DEATH


A colorful swarm of relentless jet skis shredded the brown water, crinkling its surface
like a cheap pair of scissors through dollar store gift paper. Beyond their banal buzzing
loomed the lyrical laughter of children splashing about in the reluctant little waves that
rolled lazily into the shallows. I'd gamely ventured out of the fancy store-bought air
S : '' myself, fueled by the acquisition of my new ski'
boat.
My wife, Angie, hadn't wanted to come, at least
not until I mentioned my little brother Heath was
bringing his new fiance Mindy. Then she got on
1, toe board. (No pun intended.) She said it'd be a good
';, T way to get to know our future sister-in-law. Boy,
'I, .."was she right.
i Heath shoved us off, and I cranked that boisterous
,5 new 150 horsepower Mercury outboard. Its roar
instinctively caused me to shoot a cavalier wink to
no one in particular, and slam down the throttle. We
jumped out of the water faster than Shamu after a
bucket of fried penguin.
t Anywaly Soon we were skimming the surface so fast the
But ay... only thing getting wet was the prop, and a host
wiOh Guy Shetec4 of jet skiers skirting for cover. A crowd watched
anxiously from the shore, probably hoping for
that sudden gust of wind which would've sent us into a phenomenal display of aerial
acrobatics.
Right off, Angie's elbow found its way to my calloused ribs, and Heath shot me a
familiar scowl. Then-I remember how they'd both asked me not to show myself as a
complete jerk right off. I didn't know why they wanted me to wait.
In my defense, that Mindy girl had a frozen smile plastered across her face the whole
time. It looked like she was enjoying herself to me. However, in an effort to be more
amiable, I pulled to a stop, where I commenced barking orders about rigging up the ski
rope and inner tube.
I declared Heath would be the first volunteer to ride since he was strutting around like a
banty rooster. I couldn't take any more of his muscle flexing and courting rituals. The boat
wasn't big enough for another ego. I determined to give him a ride to remember.
Heath certainly held on longer than I thought possible. I had to crank him up to almost
40 miles an hour to finally throw him. Even then I had to yank a sharp left turn and sent
him whipping around out in front of us until the sheer G-forces finally pried him loose.
His ensuing crash reminded me of the one that caused them to spend six million on that
bionic fellow. That's when I noticed that feisty Mindy girl glaring at me.
"What?" I asked, "We can rebuild him, better, stronger, faster."
After collecting what was left of Heath, I commenced laying a heavy guilt trip on
Angie. "Come on, sweetie. Don't be scared. Just give it a try. I'll go easy on you."
She responded with a look that said flatly, "Homey don't play that!"
I was about to get mad when that feisty Mindy girl spoke up, "I'll take a turn."
I raised my brow, somewhat surprised. Heath furrowed his over the top of his makeshift
neck brace.
With Heath over my shoulder, I resolved to behave and kept it at low speeds. Then
something took us both by great surprise. Feisty Mindy gave the "thumbs up" sign. That
meant she wanted to go faster!
I looked at Heath. He nodded his approval. So I bumped it up. Next thing you know
she gives another "thumbs up!" My eyes went wide. Angie snickered. Heath gave the
go ahead. This routine went on until she was riding rougher than any regular ol' fellow!
Obviously this was becoming a direct challenge to our manhood.
Then, without actually uttering a self-incriminating word, Heath sort of indicated with
his eyes that maybe it was okay to take her down a peg or two. At least that's the way I
read it. Of course, he denies it to this day, his marriage being at stake and all.
With a green light, I began to put her into what I like to call the "Vortex of Death."
Turning tight circles I began to stir the pot. Soon I had churned up the wave to beat all
waves, almost of tsunami proportions. Subsequently, I slung feisty Mindy right into it at
full speed.
I reckon the tube itself was propelled seven or eight feet high, and poor Mindy, as she


is now known, had a vantage point from well above that. I must admit, she pulled off
some pretty phenomenal aerial acrobatics for the crowd on the way down. I
We'd already circled back before she finally came down with a giant belly flop. She
just laid there bobbing like an old cork as we hauled her in. She was alive, but she didn't
say a word. In fact, it was several years9iater before she finally said one to :me!
I reckon poor ol' feisty Mindy, bionic Heath,;and amy homey-Aqgie would all Want to
share some valuable information with you If you find yourself on board with a cocky,
self-seeking, bossy, guilt-trip-laying, deranged, psycho, nut case at the helm, be looking
for a way to get your feet back on solid ground! Certainly don't give him any indication
that you agree with him, or be sucked into participating in any of his maniacal little
games.
Jesus showed us how to deal with Satan. "Get out of here, Satan, Jesus told him.


"For the Scriptures say,
'You must worship the Lord
your God and serve only
Him.'" Matthew 4:10 NLT
What? You didn't think I
was talking about me did
you?
But anyway God
has created the only Ark
that will carry you safely
through the eternal "Vortex
of Death." His name is
JESUS. "All Aboard!"

Fun things to do

this week:

We made it through that cold snap. Temperatures here were in the 50s and that was
too cold. I had a friend who lives in Chicago tell me it was -15 up there. Negative 15!
I 've barely' even seen a fin snowflakes. I can I even imagine what that s like. Well,
at least we should start having our normal temperatures of around 75 again soon.
And with the great weather comes some fim, outdoor activities fobr the weekend.

v If you've never been to the Hoggetown Medieval Faire in Gainesville before,
you are truly missing out. This is a fair that everyone can enjoy. This weekend and
next. the Alachua County Fairgrounds are transformed to ye olde medieval times.
There %\ill be a marketplace with over 150 vendors of art, weaving, blacksmithing.
leatherworking, woodcarving and jewelry making. You'll also have a chance to
witness jousting knights on horseback and the Living Chess Game, in which King
Arthur and his brave knights "fight to the death" to hold their ground in the game.
Not to mention the games. challenges, rides, entertainers and who could resist the
food? Mmm. Turkey legs and root beer. The fair will be held Friday (half-price
admission day) from 9:30 a.m. 3 p.m.. Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and
again next weekend. Jan. 3 1 -Feb. 1. Admission prices are $12 for adults, $6 for ages
5-17. Visit www.gvlculturalaffairs.org for more information.

V Also this weekend Gainesville will host the Best Buddies Friendship Festival
and Run/Walk-a-Thon. This event will be held at Westside Park at 3411 Street and
Eighth Avenue on Saturday from 8:45 a.m. 3 p.m. There will be a walk/run 5K,
face painting, arts and crafts, magicians, food by The Gelato Company and Mi Apa
Latin Grill. There will also be the Ultimate Sandwich Smack Down from 11:30
a.m. 2:30 p.m. Local sandwich makers will compete to create the best sandwich
* on the spot.

V The Nature Coast Trial offers a nice, long stretch with great scenery for
your exercising pleasure. The trail runs all the way from the Chiefland Chamber to
Trenton, so if you feel like staying in town this weekend (or weekday) but still want
to get some fresh air in, hop on the trail. Bring a friend along. You'll be surprised at
how great you feel after a little exercise.
Sometimes we may have to deal with a fet stormy days. but Florida isn "t called
the Sunshine State for nothing. Get outside, enjoy yourself and give thanks for
where we live. Not everyone can call themselves so lucky.

Williston ladies silence



Trinity Catholic in OT


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Williston ladies Head Basketball Coach-
Jason Odom would have preferred that
his team's game against Trinity Catholic
Monday be a little less dramatic. And when
you are up by five points with a minute to
go, that's probably not too much to ask.
The Lady Devils would not cooperate,
however, allowing the visiting Lady Celtics
to extend the game to overtime.
Williston's Kae'etta Jackson took over
from there, scoring 8 points in the extra
period as the Lady Devils won 65-60.
Jackson led all scorers with 28 points in the
game.
Williston took an early 2-0 lead in
the game but trailed 19-12 at the end of
the first period. Trinity Catholic's Becca
Stoner proved to be a considerable thorn
oarly on, hitting 3 first quarter 3-pointers,
part of a 21-point game overall. Stoner
bnly made one more three-pointer after the
first quarter, however, due ih large part to
defensive adjustments by the Lady Devils.
"We went from a 1-2-2 to a box and
one and tried to eliminate her," Odom said
after the game. "I think we were pretty
successful."
Williston battled back throughout much
of the first half getting to within 20-18 on
an inside shot by Jackson midway through
the second quarter. A'Sha McDonald's 5-
foot jumper with less than a minute left in
the half made it 27-24 Trinity Catholic at
the intermission.
: The third quarter was all Williston, and
Jackson led the way. The guard hit a quick
3-pointer to tie the game 10 seconds into
the half, and hit another 90 seconds later
to put Williston up 32-27. Jackson would
add another long-distance shot with two
minutes left in the period. ,


Trinity Catholic, meanwhile, began the
third quarter ice cold, going scoreless for
more than four minutes to start the period.
Stoner hit a driving layup following a steal
with 3:20 left to bring her team to within
37-29.
McDonald connected on two free throws
and a baseline jumper to close out the third
as Williston led 44-37.
But Trinity proved equal to the task,
clawing its way back into the game behind
a barrage of shots from guard Julia Barber.
Barber scored 9 of her 14 points in the final
period, including 5 in the final 32 seconds
of regulation. Her putback off a missed
' shot by Stoner with 1.2 seconds remaining
tied the score at 54-54 much to the chagrin
of Odom.
"When you are up by 5 with a minute
and a half to go and they tie it, it is a lot
more interesting than it should be," he said.
"We had some chances to close it out, but
free throws have been a casualty for us all
year. That and turnovers."
No worries. Jackson and fellow
guard Erica Mason cam& to the rescue in
overtime.
Mason began the extra period with a
layup, and Jackson followed with a layup
and a 3-pointer. Trinity countered with
shots by center Amanda Hetzer, but it was
too little, too late.
Afterward, Odom said the key to the
game was his team's ability to overcome
a size differential, and to beat the Trinity
Catholic press.
"We are undersized and we had to get
some rebounds, and fortunately, we were
able to do that," he said. "We had to take
the ball to the basket and finish our shots.
We had to beat the press and take selective
shots. When we did that we were.fine,
but when we rushed our shots we got into
trouble."

nearly take the game.
Dixie County led 7-6 after one, but held Chiefland to,
only 3 points in the second quarter while scoring 11 of theii,

Danielle Taylor, who hit a 20-footer with a minute -left to,
seal the win.
Gore said her team really wanted the game against
Dixie, but could not come back from a difficult first half.
"We had horrendous shooting in the first half and it was
difficult to overcome," she said. "We were getting shots,,
we just were not getting them in. We played pretty decent
defense we held them to 39 points. We wanted it back,
but just played too poorly in the first half to win."
