Task Force finds million dollar drug operation

Farm near Williston nets

high potency marijuana

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Levy County Drug Task Force investigators on Monday
arrested two people and seized 193 marijuana plants
from an underground bunker being used as a hydroponic
marijuana farm near Williston.
The bunker was found beneath a well disguised trap
door under a barn in the back yard of Eduardo Morales
Rodriquez, 47, 3651 N.E. 140t Ave., Williston, and his
unidentified companion, a woman who had several drivers'
licenses and a passport with different names.
Rodriquez was arrested on one count of cultivation of
marijuana. The woman, who is being called Jane Doe until
her fingerprints, are checked, was arrested on charges of
possession of cocaine, possession of a controlled substance. Il
without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia.
possession of marijuana and having two or more drivers'
licenses with different names.,,
The federal Drug Enforcement Administration seized
the marijuana. Task force spokesman Capt. Evan Sullivan
estimated the value of the pot plants at $868,500. He said
the marijuana was the high potency variety and would sell
on the street for $4,500 per pound.
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas, a member of
the task force, said Rodriquez told investigators he had
sold several pounds of the marijuana recently. Douglas 0
said Rodriquez also said he had $200,000 invested in
construction of the underground bunker.
The bunker consisted of four large rooms' housing an 4
elaborate and sophisticated hydroponic indoor marijuana ..
grow house 10 feet below the interior of the barn. The grow .
house measured 30 by 50 feet and was fortified with large
steel I-beams. The indoor farming operation was powered
by a 100 kilowatt diesel generator. Rodriquez was also
diverting and stealing power from Central Florida Electric
Cooperative for two years. .,
The investigation began three years ago when the Levy
County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 call about a fire at
the Rodriguez residence, which stands amid rolling farm
hills west of Williston. Rodriquez had seven semi cargo
containers on the property and was burning the insulation Sheriff's Capt. Evan Sullivan steps down into an underground bunker complex

The areas in red are designated as sites
for sexually oriented businesses.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Two ordinances' aimed at tightening the
requirements for topless bars and other sexually
oriented businesses were passed on first reading by
the Chiefland City Commission Monday.
Commissioners will have a second opportunity
to review the ordinances when the legal documents
dome back for a second reading in February.
A sexually oriented business means any adult
book store, adult video store, adult cabaret, adult
motel, adult motion picture theater, a semi-nude
model studio, a sexual device shop or a sexual
encounter center.
One ordinance limits sexually oriented businesses
to industrial zones and creates setbacks from
schools, churches and residential areas. It will also
need Chiefland Planning Commission approval.
The second ordinance establishes licensing
procedures for such businesses and their
employees.
The city's action Monday is the result of months


of research by City Attorney Norm Fugate and
considerable debate among commissioners. The
board doesn't want nude bars or other sexually
oriented businesses operating in the city, but federal
court rulings have outlawed total bans.
Commissioners are adopting three ordinances to
regulate the businesses.
The first ordinance, already adopted, prohibits the
sale of alcohol in such businesses. The prohibition
is legal because sexually oriented businesses have
ho constitutional right to sell alcohol.
One of the ordinances approved Monday is
nearly identical to the county's licensing ordinance
for sexually oriented businesses. The ordinance
requires business owners and employees to
purchase a license.
Applicants for such licenses -must state whether
they have been convicted or pleaded guilty to a
crime, and provide the city with conviction dates
and details about their confinement. The city can
revoke a sexually oriented business owner's license,

Bronson students study large yellow jacket nest

Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor,9,k


Although Bronson's school colors are orange and blue, Bronson
Middle Schoolers have welcomed a special guest in yellow for the
past two weeks.
A couple weeks ago, Frank McKoy found an unusually large
yellow jacket nest on his farm in Bronson.
McKoy said he and his daughter noticed the yellow jackets
flying around and he was concerned about his great-granddaughter
getting stung. So he and his daughter decided to hunt for the nest.
Yellow jacket nests are usually built underground, so they
looked for the hole from which the insects were coming. He said
when they found the hole leading to the nest underground, he tried
to kill the insects by dousing them with gasoline. When that didri't
work, he sprinkled Sevin Dust, an insecticide, over it.
Out of curiosity, he decided to dig up the nest to see how big
it was. After discovering the nest was about six inches below the

ground's surface, he dug a wide perimeter around and
started working his way in.
He said it took about two hours to completely dig up
the nest.
Once a school resource officer for Levy County. McKoN
sa"% how\ big the nest %\as and he decided it would be a
good idea to keep the nest intact and take it to the schools
to study.
"I thought it %\as such a unique thing, and that's why I
tried to keep it intact," he said.
The nest was carried to Bronson Middle School, and
students in Jennifer Bray's agriculture class spent a day
studying it and researching yellow jackets.
Some of the things the students learned were showcased
on a poster in the classroom: \ellow jackets' nests are
underground and they are \er) protectiNe of it: there is
more than one queen per nest; they are less active at night;
they are social hunters; the nests are started by the queens
and made up of wood fibers that have been chewed up and
made into a paper pulp.
Bray said the fact that yellow jackets form their nests
by chewing up wood and making a pulp was the most
interesting to the students.


When asked %what they thought about the nest, many of
the students commented on its impressive size and that it
\\as "cool" to srud. it.
"It's pretty darn big." said eighth-grader J.D. Shouse.
He said he really enjoyed studying ello\ jackets because
he learned some things he didn't know before.
"I'm really into learning about animals and insects." he
said.
The nest is 11 layers high. McKo\ said, and he describes
its size as "much bigger than a No. 2 wash tub."
"We figure from looking at the internet, it's about trwo
years old at least," Bray said.
Although they weren't exactly\ sure ho\\ man > ellow
jackets inhabited the nest. Bray said their research told
them a \ery large nest has about 4,.000, so she said their
nest probably had at least 1.000.
MlcKoy said he would like the nest to make the rounds
to all the schools in Levy County to give the kids a chance
to learn about something new.
"The kids really thought it was cool," Bray said.
"This is something I thought would be educational and
entertaining for the schools," he said.

Williston Chamber looks forward to 2009

Assistant Editor

Almost all of the guests of the. Williston Area
Chamber of Commerce banquet last Saturday walked
away with something, whether it was a diamond or
other precious gem, gift basket, gift certificate, tickets
to a UF basketball game or more.
The- 2009 Williston Chamber of Commerce
officers were installed at the banquet, which was held
at the Williston Crossings RV park clubhouse.
. Judge Joseph Smith officiated at the installation
of the officers and directors.
The 80 or so guests were served a dinner of either
chicken, roast beef or sirloin catered by Billy Jack's
and enjoyed dessert by O's So Sweet.
Williston Chamber President Justin Head said the
event didn't gather as many guests as it did last year,
which had around 100, but was still very successful.
"I think we knew going into it, given the certain
economic status, we'd have a smaller crowd," he said.
Still, even with the smaller crowd,, new
fundraisers, such as the sipping for diamonds and the
silent auction, were used this year and turned out to
be quite a hit, said Williston Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Mary Kline. who has helped put
together the event for 10 years.
Guests were given a chance to purchase a
champagne glass for $20 with their choice of
beverage. Each glass had a number on the bottom,
and each glass was a winner. Toward the end of the
evening Head called out each number and whoever
possessed the corresponding glass was given either a
Adult, from Page 1A


or an employee's license, if they knowingly
violate the ordinance.
The ordinance also requires such businesses
to erect an eight-foot tall block fence along all
property boundaries which do not adjoin a
public road or street. The idea is 'to create a
separation between such businesses and their
neighbors.
The second ordinance requires sexually
oriented businesses to be in an industrial zone
and 1,000 feet from an established place of
religious assembly, such as churches, schools,
public playgrounds, public parks or any
residential zoning district located in the city.,
Such businesses must be 500 feet from any of
these locations outside the city's boundaries.
The city has selected two industrial locations
in the newly annexed areas of north Chiefland
for sexually oriented businesses. One site is
36.1 acres on White Farms property, recessed
off U.S. 19. The other is a 20.4 acre site behind
a Yamaha motorcycle dealership.

gift bag or envelope.
The bags contained a precious gem and the
envelopes contained a gift certificate, all donated by
Andover End Jewelry and Gifts. The.grand prize was
a diamond with a retail value worth $1,200.
The diamond was won by Charlotte Lawrence of
Williston, whose son-in-law Earl Ogle is the vice
president of the chamber.
She said she was very surprised to find the sparkly
diamond when she opened the case and plans to have
a ring made with it.
"I never win anything but this made up for it," she
said.
Even though the champagne glasses went fairly
quickly, attendees were given many more opportunities
to win a prize.
Kline said the chamber wanted everyone to be able
to walk out a winner.
Local businesses supplied items for a silent auction.
Tickets were sold for a 50/50 raffle. And many winnings
did not even involve a purchase, as each guest was
given a ticket for door prizes.
Head said the money raised at the banquetwill help
fund many of the events sponsored by the chamber
throughout the year; events such as the Airport Fly
Festival in March, the Third of July ,Independence
Day celebration in July, the Annual Williston Peanut
Festival in October and the Christmas parade.
Head said he is excited to work with chamber board
in 2009 and said they are a "great board" and everyone
has "a lot of input and great ideas." ,
"We're looking forward to another great year," he
said.

Sheriff's arrests


Deputies say shoe-theft victim is drive-by shooting suspect


A Bronson man who was the victim of shoe robbery on
Jan. 7 was arrested on Jan. 23 for firing a gun into a vehicle
occupied by the man charged with the holdup.
Robert Hughes, 19, 10370 N.E. 81st St., was arrested
on four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon
and one count of shooting into an occupied vehicle.
The sheriff's office said Hughes and an unidentified man
were in a truck when they drove past four men, including
Timothy Neal, the man accused of robbing Hughes of a
pair of shoes in the earlier incident, and fired four shots at
them. The unidentified man fired the gun.
Timothy Neal and the other three men with him, Kirkland
L. Neal and Larry Greenlee of Bronson and Danny Walker
of Gainesville were not injured in the shooting. Kirkland
Neal and Walker were in a car. The other two men were
standing alongside the car.
Investigators said the first bullet missed, but the second
struck the car on the passenger door.
Kirkland Neal recognized the shooter as Robert Hughes
from prior dealings. Neal said Hughes and his associate
had driven past them slowly, taunting him and Timothy
Neal with obscene gestures (a raised middle finger) and by
hanging shoes out the window. When the truck drove past
them a second time shots were heard.


Total bond for Hughes was set at $125,000.
A Bronson man was arrested for strong arm robbery
on Jan. 22, but his accomplice has not been caught.
Nicholas Lee Bailey, 20, 591 E. Thrasher Ave., Bronson,
and another man attacked the victim at the intersection of
Main Street and Glover Street and struck him on the head
with an expandable baton stick.
The victim said he was walking down the road when
Bailey and Randy Rice walked out of woods and approached
him on foot. Bailey was armed with a pipe and struck the
victim on the back of the head, rendering him unconscious,
the sheriff's office said.
After the assault Bailey and Rice rummaged through
the victim's pockets and stole an undisclosed amount of
money. The victim said the suspects ran away on foot. He
attempted to catch them and saw Bailey throw a pipe into
a wooded area. Rice entered a car and fled the scene. A
deputy sheriff was in the area and observed Bailey running
on foot attempting to flee the scene. He detained him for
questioning.
A bloody shirt, expandable baton and crack cocaine
was recovered from the woods. Bailey was-arrested for the
robbery. He was already on felony probation for escape.
The sheriff's office was unable to locate Rice.


Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked
to call 486-5111. If you wish to remain anonymous, call
Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477. Rice is a white male,
5-feet 5-inches tall, 130 pounds, brown hair with tattoos on
his neck and back.
M A Williston man is facing two felony charges in
connection with the attempted strangulation of his girlfriend
at their home, according to the sheriff's office.
Raymond Dayton, Jr., 27, 6530 N.E. 126th Ave., was
arguing with his girlfriend over money and unemployment
on Jan. 22 when he became angry and grabbed her by the
throat, triggering an asthma attack.
A witness attempted to contact the sheriff's office by
calling 9-1-1, but Dayton grabbed the purple cellular phone
and broke it in half.
Dayton was arrested on charges of domestic battery
by strangulation and preventing communication with law
enforcement. Dayton claimed he did not put his hands on
the woman, but admitted having an anger problem. Bond
$5,000.
N Sheriff's investigators say a 49-year-old Williston
man was arrested on Jan. 15 after he attempted to run

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR
DRINKING WATER

Otter Creek WTP Has Levels of Disinfection By-Products
Above Drinking Water Standards

What happened?
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an
emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should
do, and what we are doing to correct the situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results
we received from samples taken September 16, 2008 show that our system exceeds the
standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection By-Products
(DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids [Five]
(HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter (p/L) and the average
level of TTHMs over the last year was 130.6 p/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 p/L,
the average level of.HAA5s over the last year was 110.5 g/L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years
may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may
have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years
may have an increased risk, of getting cancer.
Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative
sources of water for ingestion.

What does this mean?
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.

What is being done?
This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels:
We are flushing the water system.
We are reducing the chlorine residual to help reduce DBPs.
We are increasing sampling for DBPs.
We have replaced the pre-filtration chlorination with Sodium Permanganate
We will.inform you when additional samples show levels of DBPs below the'
MCLs.

We anticipate resolving the problem within this time frame:
We are continuing to work with engineers from FRWA (Florida Rural Water
Association). We are hoping that by making adjustments to the system we will see a
reduction in DBPs within the next six months.

For more information, please contact Town Clerk Rosemary Severino, at 352-486-4766.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially
those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments,
nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public
place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

This notice is being sent to you by Otter Creek TP ."

on where you stand on the issues of the
day, that is not
necessarily good. But it's not
necessarily bad either.
Mr. Obama has reportedly
been signing executive orders
faster than any president in
recent memory, indicating his
promise for change was not
just idle talk. So he is a man
of his word, and that's a good r
thing.
But one of the first orders t
he signed was a directive
to close the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay,
Cuba in the next year. That's bad. More than 200 of the
most dangerous criminals the world has ever known call
GITMO home, and each of them no doubt harbor some
serious ill will toward the United States. Where to put
them remains the key question at hand. Lodging them in a
U.S. facility would be bad enough nobody wants these
thugs close by, because if they escape, American blood
will almost certainly be spilled. Even without escape,
would you trust the U.S. legal system to ensure they are
kept away from the U.S. populace? Not hardly.
Turning them loose overseas would be even worse.
According to a story by CNN, U.S. intelligence reports
estimate that as many as 60 former GITMO detainees
reentered the battlefield overseas very quickly after
release. No surprise there. No one should reasonably
expect these folks to lead quiet, unassuming lives;
knitting and playing Scrabble after release. (There are
only two "Qs" in each Scrabble game, and they would all
be trying to spell "al Qaida" over and over.)
Having taken the first big step of announcing the
closure of the prison, President Obama now has a year to
ponder the all-important second step. And that's good.
He has considerably less time to figure out what to do
with Robert Reich. Reich, an Obama economic advisor
and former Secretary of Labor for President Clinton, told
attendees of a House Democratic Steering and Policy
Committee meeting Jan 7 that jobs created by increased
government spending during the Obama Presidency
'should "not simply go to high skilled people who are
already professionals or to white male construction
workers."
That's bad.
Imagine the fallout if a Bush appointee had said
something along the lines of "funds should not be spent
on minority construction workers."
Here's an idea brace yourself, its radical. Maybe the
jobs should go to the most qualified individuals, without
regard to race.
President Obama! should certainly fire Reich for those
comments. Doing so would send a message to the rest of
the country that racial injustice will not be tolerated in his
administration. That would be good.
While he is at it, Obama should also reconsider the
appointment of Tim Geithner as Treasury Secretary.
Regardless of his qualifications for the job, Geithner's tax
trouble sends a clear message that the law of the land is
not the administration's top priority. And that's bad.
The top priority of the Obama administration?
Perhaps, just perhaps, it is combating terrorism. A volley
of U.S. missiles late Friday apparently killed 17 al Qaida
operatives. That's good. It sends a clear signal to terrorists
everywhere that the change of leadership in the United
States will have no significant impact on them. They Will
still have to watch their backs every moment of the day.
Mr. Obama also managed to strike down the Bush
administration's ban on providing money to international
groups performing abortions or providing abortion
information. That's bad, if you consider that whole "Thou
shalt not kill" thing from the 10 Commandments. But in
a Socialist society, where each unwanted baby will very
likely become an added burden on the working class,
perhaps it is a good thing.
That's a lot for the young president to have
accomplished in the span of a single week. With 207
weeks left in his four-year term, you begin to see how
America will be a drastically different place when he is
done.
SWe voted for change. Here it comes.

Otter Creek a living piece of county history

But will development eventually find the town ?


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

W walking out of Otter Creek City Hall last
week following a meeting of the town
council, I commented to Mayor Cleah
Martin on the beautiful night. She agreed.
We stood in silence for a moment under the stars we
could see through.the canopy of towering oaks around
us. The night was so still we could have heard a pin drop
from 100 feet away. That's noft ieextagd ation. ''
We talked for a while about the town oi130 people
and its program to sterilize all the stray cats in town.
Many of the feral cats make their own living in the little
hamlet 13 miles south of Chiefland. They catch mice and
whatever crosses their paths. They are working cats. Most
of them don't eat unless they hunt. The town is showing
compassion by allowing them to live. At the same time,
town officials are making sure the cats don't overpopulate
their community by sterilizing them.
Otter Creek was once a large town back in the days
when the big lumber companies were active in Levy
County. The railroad ran through Otter Creek and the
downtown area was a bustling retail area. Remnants of
buildings that were once part of the boomtown days can
be seen in the daylight in some parts of the town. Not
many people are alive today who remember the era.
As the mayor and I talked under the street lights, a
young married couple walked past us, each carrying a
young child. They bade the mayor and me a friendly hello
and continued walking. Everyone pretty much knows
everyone else in Otter Creek. It's like a big family. That
doesn't mean everyone loves everyone else or that it's a
slice of heaven, but it's a neat place. I've always liked it.
I commented to a native Levy Countian the other day
that Otter Creek is vintage Levy County. She paused for a
moment and responded that she agreed, but added, "Old
Levy County." I agreed with that. It's a town that oozes
with history and it's the town situated as close as you can
get to the center of the county. The-town is surrounded
by forest, seasonal wetlands and swamps. Driving on
U.S. 19, you could miss Otter Creek if you didn't slow
down for the blinking yellow light. Except for the post
office and two small stores at the intersection, the town is
hidden in the trees west of the blinking light.
Someday soon, I suspect Otter Creek could be
"discovered" by an enterprising developer who sees the
potential for remaking the town into "something more
modem." I'm not sure if Otter Creek residents would like
that idea. In some ways the peacefulness of living in a
beautifully forested little town is like pleasant background
music. You tend to forget about the low stress levels.
The harmony of the universe more or less envelopes
you on a quiet winter or summer night. But if the town
is discovered, the townspeople would probably notice
the changes immediately. They would have to make a
conscious effort to preserve their gorgeous tree canopy .
or lose it forever. They would have to work to preserve
whatever history might be lost to development.
Those days may be years away, or it could happen
tomorrow. Twenty miles south of Otter Creek is the site .
of a proposed nuclear power plant facility. The plant itself
won't directly affect Otter Creek. When the plant is in
operation behind a large forest of pine trees, residents in
the area won't notice much difference. The lights of the
plant will be shaded with directional canopies to focus


the light on the ground. Nuclear power plants are quiet. I
lived in Citrus County for seven years and was assigned
to report on the plant. The nuclear power plant there
is like background noise. No one pays much attention.
The daily emergency sirens that can be heard from
Yankeetown to Crystal River are the main reminder the
plant is there. And those sirens are annoying once every
day. The first time I heard one I nearly choked on my
lunch in Crystal River. Shiver me timbers.
If the nuclear power plant comes to.south Levy ',!u
"CoLiintyi, tVill attff 60bfli6mic dee*dlpett. WPts s
lik 'Otter Creek and Gulf Hammock coiild'be ripe- foi
residential development. If the county isn't prepared for
this potential growth spurt a decade from now, towns
like Otter Creek could become victims of development
rather than benefiting from it. I don't cover Otter Creek
enough to know what their ordinances say about future
development. Townspeople may already have a blueprint
in place to manage such growth.
I don't think Otter Creek should be soaked in
preservative to maintain what's there in its current state.
There are a number of buildings that probably need work
or they need to be torn down. The water plant breaks
down occasionally. If development came to Otter Creek,
the townspeople would have to decide what is historical
and what is not, and how they want to develop.
I do think residents there would be surprised at all
the issues they would confront if someone came into
town and wanted to remake the city into a hamlet with
curb and gutter paved streets and high end homes. It's
not an improbable scenario. When a large industrial
development like a two-unit nuclear power plant moves
to the county, it will change thetcounty. The plant will
employ a lot of people in high wage jobs. They can live
in Levy County if they choose, or they can move into
Citrus County which already has the beautiful gated golf
course subdivisions where wealthy retirees live. The
subdivisions are a big part of Citrus County's tax base,
along with the Crystal River Energy Complex, which is
where the Crystal River nuclear power plant is located.
I'm not saying Otter Creek definitely would be eyed
by development if the nuke plant comes to south Levy
County, but Otter Creek is the type of place that has
been preserved in such mint condition, complete with
grand oak trees lining every street, that it could turn
into a different type of city fairly quickly. Or it could
remain just as it is today. That would be a decision of
the townspeople and their proud city government. But
it's something they should be thinking about now. It's
something county government needs to be thinking about.
The nuke plant hasn't received all its approvals yet, but
the process is moving along.
If Levy County wants to cede all the high-end
development the golf course communities and shopping
center to Citrus County, I'm sure Citrus County officials
won't mind. And perhaps the folks in Otter Creek won't
mind either. They may want Otter Creek to remain just
as it is now, a living piece of Levy County history quietly
existing in the heart of the county. I have lived in both
counties. There are some drawbacks to having all that
high-end development. A lot of newcomers with New
England and Michigan accents will move here if we get
high-end development. They will take over the local
politics eventually.

Development:
The purpose and effect of the
proposed revision of Rule 40D-
4.091, F.A.C. is to incorporate
by reference changes to Section
(9)0(j)3 of Appendix IV of the Ba-
sis of Review for Environmental
Resource Permitting (BOR) that
remove the consideration of
taxes in the development of cost
estimates for the perpetual man-
agement of mitigation banks.
Section (9)(i) of Appendix IV
.of the BOR requires mitigation
bankers to provide financial re-
sponsibility sufficient to ensure
that funds will be available to the
District to perpetually manage
the mitigation bank if the bank-
er abandons the bank. Section
(9)0(j)3 prescribes the elements
to be included in the develop-
ment of cost estimates that pro-
vide the basis for determining
the amount of that financial re-
sponsibility. The current require-
ments include taxes as one of
the elements used to arrive at


an appropriate cost estimate.
In 2007 the Legislature.
amended Section 197.572,
Florida Statutes, to provide that
when any lands are sold for the

ant to any tax lien foreclosure
proceeding the title to the lands

Sheriff's Capt. Evan Sullivan examines a room set aside for electronic wiring in the underground bunker. The wiring sent electricity to three

Grow, from Page 1A


He said he planned to bury the containers. The discovery
of the containers occurred after the 2004 hurricanes.
Sullivan said the sheriff's office was suspicious of
Rodriquez's intentions.
"During that time we saw things that led us to believe
it was a growing operation or would potentially become a
growing operation," Sullivan said.
On Monday investigators drove to the property for
a "kriock and talk" at Rodriquez's brick home. While
investigators were there, they were surprised to see him
emerge from a trap door inside the barn. He consented to a
search of the area below the trap door. Sullivan declined to
say why they chose that particular day for the visit.
"When we got there he was 'coming out of a trap door. He
was startled by us and we were startled by him," Sullivan said.
The trap door was invisible to the naked eye. Straw
had been attached to the door to form a matt that blended
perfectly with other straw in one room of the barn. A
stairway led to bunker. Next to the stairway was the large
generator. Rodriquez claimed he stole the generator in
Miami, but the preliminary investigation found it wasn't
stolen. Investigators are not sure how he managed to lower
something that large and heavy into the bunker, even if he
had assistance. He claimed he built the entire complex by
himself. A second large generator on wheels was found on
the property. The property also had a second house, which
was unoccupied.
The bunker had air cleaning equipment and a separate
room housing an elaborate system of electrical wires that
channeled electricity to the grow. room. The system pumped
liquid nutrients into grow pots in the air conditioned rooms
of the bunker.



City continues


affiliation with


drug task force



By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Levy County drug Task Force seized more than six
pounds of cocaine and 340 pounds of marijuana in 2008,
and Chiefland police participated.
Chief Robert Douglas told city commissioners Monday
the city received $15,484 from task force seizures. The
money went to the city's law enforcement trust fund for
computer purchases.
He said more seizures are slowly making their way
through the court. Property and vehicles seized during drug
investigations are sometimes forfeited to the investigative
agencies.
Douglas recited statistics from the task force Monday
night after receiving city commission approval for
an agreement allowing Chiefland police to continue
participating in the task force for three more years.
During his presentation he mentioned that the task force,
had busted a large, marijuana grow house near Williston
earlier in the day.
The city provides one full-time law enforcement officer
under the agreement, and the sheriff's office provides the
vehicle, radio and other equipment.
Douglas said 316 suspects were arrested by the task
force for drug violations in 2008.
Drug seizures included 2,729 grams of cocaine with a
street value of $150,000. The task force seized 340 pounds
of marijuana with a value of $544,000.
A total of 1,540 marijuana plants were seized. Each
plant had an estimated value of $1,000 each for a total of
$1,540.
Five people were federally indicted through task force
investigations, with more indictments pending. Numerous
cases are pending on the federal and state level.
The total value of drugs seized by the task force in 2008
was $2,099,000.
"For a year, that's a heck of a job," Douglas said.

Big events in

coming weeks

for Levy County

By Rick Burnham
Editor

With a number of rivers within a
stone's throw, and with the Gulf of
Mexico serving as a western border, Levy
County residents enjoy an abundance
of aquatic-themed recreational
.opportunities.
,Two upcoming annual events
,,illutratt that fact perfectly.
i.-The Wild Hog Kayak and Canoe
, Ra e, in which dozens brave the murky),
waters s of the Waccasassa River, will
tale place April 25, while the Chiefland
Rotary Club Fishing Tournament is set
for May 9 in Cedar Key.
Both events are designed to test the
skills and fortitude of outdoorsmen.
Boaters must negotiate a variety of
' ,obstacles to get through the 15-mile
.Wild Hog rade, said race co-coordinator
Margie McGarza.
"It is low water, and they will have to
get out-of their boat in a lot of different
places," she said.
Fifty-one boats braved those, waters
a year ago, with John Edwards of St.
Petersburg crossing the finish line first.
in a blistering 1:49:30.
Those who do it the fastest will be'
.rewarded with cash and prizes, she added..
The yinrier' takes home a weekend for
two at a' Kissimmee time-share, While
.,-second place finisher will get a gas
barbecue grill. Third through sixth place
":-fihishers, get $100, $75, $50, and $25,
respectively. In addition, various prizes
donated by area businesses will be given
away during the day.
Proceeds go to the Levy Association
of Retarded Citizens. Race organizers
are looking for sponsors, McGarza
added. Anyone looking to enter can call
McGarza at 486-2535.
The cost for those who enter is $30
for a one-person boat. and $40 for a two-
person tandem.
A lumber of prizes, totaling as
muchas $7,500, will be awarded at this
year's Chiefland Rotary Club Fishing
Tournament. The fisherman with the
biggest redfish will take home a $1,000
prize, as will the angler who brings in
the biggest trout. The person with the
biggest bag based on two redfish and
five trout will claim a $2,000 prize.
.The cost for the tournament is $125
per boat. which pays for the captain and
mate. After May 2, that cost goes up to
$150. Extra anglers cost $50 each. Each
entrant will get.a goody bag and t-shirt.
A Captains' Meeting and Calcutta is
scheduled from 6:30 to 7 p.m. May 8 at
the Island Room Restaurant.
Approximately 50 boats participated
in.the event a year ago.
Proceeds from the Rotary Club
Fishing Tournament are used for a variety
ofthings, including LARC, scholarships
for local students, and uniforms for high
school sports teams.


Chiefland gains district win at Ft. White

Girls, JV boys lose;

JV girls win big

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor


Chiefland head basketball coach Mark
Lundy worries about free throws, and about
missed opportunities. He knows full well
that his team will have to play better ball
when the district playoffs begin the second
week in February.
But, with Cantrell Richardson crashing
boards and Stephen Davis flying through
the air at both ends of the court, Lundy can
rest a little easier.
Richardson and Davis scored 18 points
apiece to lead the Indians to a 59-51 win
over district foe Ft. White Friday.
The win ruined senior night festivities
for Ft. White, which got 14 points from
Chandler Kitzman.
Chiefland jumped to a quick 5-0 lead
and pushed the advantage to 11-2 on an
inside shot by Josh Wasson late in the first
quarter. Dontrell Sanders scored on a short
shot after receiving a pass from Richardson
to put their team up 15-6, but Tim Barnes
hit a 10-foot shot for Ft. White to close out
first-quarter scoring at 15-8.
Chiefland, increased its lead in the
second quarter behind Richardson and
Davis. Following a free throw by Reggie
McClendon, Richardson's 3-point shot from
the right comer increased the advantage to
19-8. Ft. White got a basket from Dennis
Stout, but Chiefland came back with a shot
from Jamantaye Thompson and two free
throws from Davis.
Free throws were hardly a source of
strength for Chiefland throughout the game.
The Indians made only 16 of 29, prompting
harsh words from Lundy.
"We were horrible from the free throw
line, and that is unacceptable," the coach
said. "We missed several opportunities
in 'one-and-one' situations. We had an

Williston hammers Trinity Catholic


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


It was literally raining 3-point shots at Trinity Catholic High
School in Ocala Saturday. ,
And Trinity Catholic wasn't benefiting from the shooting
clinic.
The Williston High School varsity boys' basketball team sank
10 shots from behind the 3-point circle en route to a 66-30 rout of
the Trinity Catholic Celtics.
Red Devils Paul King, Kelcey Coleman and Paul King each hit
three shots from behind the 3-point arc, while Deonte Welch sank
one.
Williston grabbed an early 19-2 lead with a defensive effort that
kept the Celtics off the boards and prevented them from having an
inside presence. Add to that the hail storm of threes and it was a
mismatch.
The mercy rule was imposed late in the third quarter. With
Williston leading by more than 35, officials let the clock run


continuously.
Williston added a touch of sportsmanship at the end of the
game. They. passed the ball for the final three minutes and made
no effort to score.
Coach David Vespignani said Williston came into the game
with fresh legs, and that helped. He said three days of practice and
a rested team were keys to igniting the Red Devils' offensive blitz
and strong defensive effort.
He said the Red Devils were willing to move their feet on
defense to maintain a strong position on their opponent rather than
just reaching with their hands.
"Our kids play well together. When you have a bunch of kids
who don't care who gets the credit, it's great," Vespignani said.
Williston is 15-6.
The rain of 3-pointers started within minutes of the jump ball
when Kelcey Coleman hit the first of 10. Paul King added a 3 on
the next trip down court and Deonte Welch hit a 3 to make it 11-

Skateboard park beginning to take shape


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Skateboarders often invent practice areas
for their sport.
That became apparent to city officials
recently.
Chiefland city commissioners were
planning the city's first skateboard park when
they learned that skateboarders had been
spotted one day on the roof of the former
Bell's Restaurant, now Bubbaque's. City
police asked them to leave. They agreed.
But if you're a skateboarder, you do what
you have to do.
That's aboutto change.
The foundation for a large skateboard
park was poured Monday at Delma Locke
Community Park behind Chiefland High


School. Jones Masonry emptied 18 truckloads
of concrete into the 125- by 77-foot park. The
steel-reinforced concrete is five inches thick
with a smooth finish.
A Florida Recreation Development
Assistance Program grant of $135,611
is paying for the entire skateboard park.
The cost of the masonry was $32,000. The
components of the park, to be assembled on
the concrete foundation, will cost $92,000.
The city is also planning to install a water
fountain and benches.
On Monday the city's recreation
advisory committee and a handful of young
skateboarders listened to presentations from
three skateboard park manufacturers on
what the companies offer. The skateboarders
were invited to participate to ensure the city
builds a park skaters would like. A decision


should be made by early next week on the
contract.
The skateboard park will be in operation
by April or early May, according to Laurie
Copeland, financial projects coordinator
for the city. She is the person who oversaw
administration of the project.
"I think it's something the city of
Chiefland can be extremely proud of," she
said. "It's going to be extremely high quality
and the kids are going to love it."
The metal version of the skateboard
park offered by American Ramp Company
found favor with two of the skateboarders
at the meeting. Joseph Motterek, 18, and
Brian Crise 17, said afterward they skate
"just everywhere," including Gainesville.

Bronson gets lopsided win over Trenton


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff 'Writer

Bronson's varsity boys
routed Trenton Friday in a 67-
32 victory.
James Rivers led the team in
scoring and rebounding with 25
points and 17 rebounds.
Ten Eagles scored.
The game was never close
after Bronson opened a 12-2
lead in the first few minutes of
play.
"We had three good practices
this week," said Coach Aaron
Haldeman. "They really got
after it. They came out and
executed everything."
The team's record is 9-8.
Enrique Wiseman, the
team's second leading scorer
on the night with 12 points,
also grabbed 16 rebounds.
It was one of those games
where Bronson's defense

wasn't giving ground. Trenton
was missing one of its top starters, and its big man,
Trevor Pelfry.
But Bronson players were hustling for loose balls
and gaining good defensive position. They cleaned the
defensive boards on missed shots.
The mercy rule was never in effect because Bronson's

lead never reached 35. But it
got close a few times despite
Haldeman's liberal use of
substitutions for much of the
second half.
One short stretch toward the
end showed why the score was
so lopsided.
Virgil Greenlee stole the
ball and scored. He was fouled.
Greenlee missed the free
throws, but on Trenton's next
possession, Bronson stole the
'ball again and Wiseman hit
for 2 points. Greenlee drew a
charge soon after, giving the
Eagles a fresh possession.
Following, a stoppage of
the game for a Trenton injury,
the Tigers threw the ball away,
giving Bronson another fast
break opportunity. The Eagles
scored.
The end of the game came
soon after.

Trenton tops Bronson girls

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's varsity girls' basketball team on Friday lost
55-28 to Trenton in a game marred by two ejections.
Coach Sherrie Schuler said part of the reason for the
loss is that she lost three experienced players for academic
reasons.
"These are girls who are capable of being academically
successful, but for some reason they had other priorities,"
she said.
The remainder of the squad did not fare well against
Trenton. Shooting continued to be a problem, as it has in
past games. Close range shots weren't falling either.
"They shoot fine in practice," Schuler said. "In the game
they're petrified."
The two teams weren't shy about physical contact. Two
players were ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct, one from
each team. It was unclear who started the fracas and who
retaliated. The Florida High School Activities Association
will determine the punishment.
Schuler said her team had problems with the same.girl
when Bronson played in Trenton this season.
But Schuler said she did see some "glimmers" of hope for
her team. She said they are practicing new game strategies.
The team has one win.

The Levy County School Board has made the gymnasium
available to. the CAAA without lighting, due to limited financial
resources. So while educators fret about dwindling budgets, the
CAAA worries about diminishing sunlight. The 20 or so teams have ..

They are looking forward to the new
Chiefland skateboard park. The two
said they hope American Ranip, the
first presenter, is selected by the'city.
"I thought the first one was the
best," Mottereck said. Crise agreed.
They liked the 20-year warranty and
the presentation by Nathan Bemo, a
professional skateboarder who owns
the company.
A second firm, Rampage, and its
representatives, Richard Peterson and
Matt Lugo, visited the skateboard park
site after giving their presentation at
Chiefland City Hall. They said the
foundation was the best they had seen in
their travels around the eastern United
States, noting it has a smooth glassy
surface. But the park was bigger than
they thought. It's one of the biggest
they have seen.
Copeland said Jones Masonry had
visited other skateboard parks in the
area to get a better idea of.how the
foundation should be constructed.
The company knew the park would
be important to young people and
Copeland said they wanted to make
certain they built it the right way.
While. Commissioner Teresa
Barron was the main political force
who got behind the skate1 park and
lobbied for state funding, there were
others involved, including' her fellow
commissioners. Copeland also said Cat
Davis, who operates Billy Bones Music
& More with her husband, along with
the Rev. Kent Zimmerman were active
in pushing for the skate park. She said
thel city's recreation advisory committee
was also a key part of the project.
Committee members attending
Monday's meeting were Eddie Jean
Williams, Dorothy Scott, Wayne
Weatherford and Cat Davis. Copeland,
City Manager Grady Hartzog and city
Facilities Manager Shane King are
city staff members who advise the
committee. Barron was ill and could
not attend the meeting.

EXPOSING THE SECRET


"He's just a kid," I heard my mom pleading as I climbed atop that big red International
farm tractor. I was about to argue, but I noticed my grandpa wasn't paying her no mind,
so I decided not to either.
If Papa said it was a go, it was a go. This was his farm and her complaining would
likely only harden his Italian resolve. I even detected a faint hint of satisfaction in his
voices, he said, "Keep it. in, da first gear~der boy,
just dow tk fd bayou as bgck["'
Momma was turning red. "He can't be trusted,
Daddy!" she said, exasperated.
I gave her a feigned conciliatory smile, winked
at my little brother Heath, and popped the clutch on
big red; leaving them all choking in the delta dust.
V Chances are Mom stomped off mad, but I never
turned to look. It was important Papa knew I was
keeping my eyes on the road. If I could muster
some maturity here, I might get a free run of the
tractor this summer. I veered clear off the turn row
just thinking on it.
It was scarcely a quarter mile to the bayou, but
it didn't take that long for me to grow extremely
But An'yway.. bored with just puttering along in first gear. I mean,
a y *even a patient man can only take so much. Besides,
with Guy Sheftdie I was hankering to idle her up and rip through the
gears and see what this baby would do. This slow
bobbing along stuff was putting me to sleep. By the time I reached the bayou I was asking
myself, "What are rules for anyhow, just to hold a man down?"
Papa hadn't actually specified what side of the bayou I should turn around on, so I
crossed on over. While there, shielded by that thick tree line, the thought hit me, "What
would it hurt if I let loose for a couple hundred yards? Shucks, it might not take but just a
few seconds. They can't see me from the barn anyhow."
My little brother Heath, who possesses a memory like a hypnotized elephant on truth
serum, still likes to tell it from his perspective.


"The moment that bone head crossed the bayou," he recalls, "Papa started growling in
Italian. Momma hollered out the window, 'I told you!' Grandma dug out her rosary beads
and started reciting 'Hail Marys.' Everyone's jaws dropped when we saw that tremendous
dust cloud tearing along above the tree line like a space shuttle launching across the
bayou." r
When I came puttering innocently backup to the barn, Papa's face was so red I thought
h''d 6een stung by a bee, ., ..... s h ,t
"What's wrong with you?" I asked.
His jaw muscles worked, but nothing came out. He just pointed for md to park it. This
certainly wasn't the fanfare I had expected. Where was everyone at? Didn't Momma owe
me an apology? As I drove past I noticed Papa's big bushy eyebrows were gnarled and
hanging at a strange angle. It seemed vaguely familiar, like some sort of deja vu
When I hopped down, he yanked off his big leather belt, and it all suddenly came
flooding back to me. Those were the same brows I'd seen the day I'd bonked him on the
head with that big dirt clod. Uh-oh!
Why do we think we've gotten away with something when we think no one's looking?
Like our secret activities don't register on the sowing and reaping chart? I couldn't even
hide my sin from an old man a quarter of a mile away behind a tree line and a monster
pair of eyebrows! What would make me think I could pull one over on God, who even
discerns the thoughts and intents of our hearts?
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before
His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are accountable. Hebrews 4:13. We'd do well-
just to learn to keep things real with the Lord. There's really no such thing as a secret to
Him.
But anyway Thanks to a praying grandmother and a fast pair of Converse, I survived
the wrath of the zesty Italian that day. I never did get free run of his tractors though. Later,
Papa even welded a piece of metal on the gear box of his riding lawn mower to keep it in
second gear so I wouldn't cut his yard on two wheels; but of course, that's a whole other
story.

Leopards at the gate


The number 21 invokes many different thoughts in
our culture: a ritzy NY restaurant; a fairly easy, and
possibly, fair, card game; a 21 gun salute; the legal
drinking age. But for me, it means only one thing:
21 years ago today, standing in a gymnasium (called
a Family Life Center, built before the main sanctuary
of the church) my husband and I exchanged wedding
vows.
Yes, we actually have a picture of us standing under
the basketball goal, where my brother, the officiating
pastor, gave my husband one last chance out of our
totally dysfunctional family and told him that if he made
the three pointer, he was out of there. Unfortunately or
fortunately, depending on your perspective, my husband
ran cross-country in high school, so my brother was
able to turn us around to face the audience while he
whispered behind us these encouraging words, "It's
history now." Thanks, Brother.
And thanks to Mother, also, who was probably the
happiest member of either of our families concerning
this union. To all of you single gals.out there: Do not
give the address of your boyfriend to your mother, no
matter how innocent the request might seem at the
time.
Mother was 65 at the time and wanted her youngest


child, me, happily married. Having met my then
boyfriend and approving of what she saw, she decided
to stir things up a bit, as only she could do. She
mailed him a birthday card the September before we
were married, just an innocent card with wonderful,
printed sentiments wishing him a happy day. It was the
unprinted part, the handwritten stuff that caused some
little consternation.
Mother was a Bible scholar and used Scripture
quite often in speech and writing. So she thoughtfully,
very, very thoughtfully, included this reference in my
boyfriend's card: Matthew 11:3. He looked it up, read
it to himself, closed the Bible, inserted the card back
into the envelope and said not one word about it or very
little else for the rest of the evening, for that matter.
Here's what the verse says, folks: "and said to
Him, 'Are You the Expected One, or shall we look for
someone else?'" I kid you not.
Our editor mentioned recently that my life is like one
big Lucy skit, which is true, especially the psychiatrist's
booth part and the fact that my dog is named Snoopy
and thinks he IS Snoopy. Throw in the comics For
Better or Worse, The Born Loser and Ripley's Believe
It or Not, and you're getting closer. I simply cannot
make this stuff up.


Like the time we were playing Bible Trivia with
Mother yes, we wanted to lose, we knew we were
way outgunned, but we thought it would be fun and
maybe we'd learn something; we did.
Jerusalem had many different gates and one of the
questions to her was something like this: Why would
the residents of Jerusalem avoid entering the city by the
Sheep gate? Her answer was, "because many leopards
lived there." My husband said, "I wouldn't go there
either, especially if I were a sheep."
Now, of course, you know she meant lepers, not
leopards, but that is how she talked. Her name being
Dixie, we called it Dixiebonics or Dixie-speak. (I was
way grown before I found out that Tennessee Ernie
Ford, famous Grand Old Opry singer, did not write,
the critically acclaimed play, The Glass Menagerie,
instead being written by that other Tennessee person
- Williams.)
So today we celebrate our anniversary, knowing that
Mother would approve and send her fondest Happy
Birthday card to us, having gotten the happy part right,
the rest being history, anyway.

Williston salutes Baker,


2008 Red Devils squad


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Before Jamie Baker rides off into the
sunset to pursue his dream job, the Williston
community wanted to send him off in style
- their way of saying thanks for putting
Williston High School football back on the
map.
They did so at the annual awards banquet
for the team Jan. 22. School officials, along
with players and cheerleaders and the
families of both, gathered in the cafeteria
for an evening of highlights and accolades,
the strongest of which were reserved for
the popular coach and his wife, Tricia.
The couple responded with a heartfelt
and teary goodbye, calling their five years
at WHS "the best" of their years in high
school football, and Williston "a -great
community to live and work in." Baker
announced last month that he would give
up his job as head coach to pursue a career
as a cattle rancher.
Earlier in the evening, JV Coach Jim
Smith praised Baker for helping to turn the
football program around for the school.
"He has brought this program a long
way, back to kinda where it used to be,"
said JV Coach Jim Smith. "He definitely
leaves this program better than he found it,
and he will be missed."
Baker handed out a number of special


honors for players on the team, including
the Offensive MVP Award to Travis Evans.
Baker introduced Evans, saying that
the senior running back brought special
qualities to the football field.
"There are a lot of guys who have walked
through this school who say 'I am going to
do this' and 'I am going to do that,'" Baker
said. "Very few of the ones who are capable
of doing it actually follow through with it
like Travis did."
Baker also had kind words for Team
Captain Award winner Chris Morrow.
"We picked the young man who truly
exemplified the standards of being a
captain," he said. "It does my heart good to
see what this young man does. He did not
say a lot, but he didn't have to. The way he
played spoke for itself."
Each of nine senior players received
photo collages produced by Williston
resident Rhonda Virden. Baker received
one as well, along with a couple of items
from the Williston Quarterback Club a
pair of boots and gloves, and a pint-sized
pair of post-hole diggers, which produced a
round of laughter from the crowd.
Earlier, Smith introduced the JV squad,
and offered tangible reasons why they
finished the year at 6-1.
"They were coachable, they were good
kids, and they worked hard," he said. "They
carried themselves well on the field, off the
field, and in the classroom."
Cheerleading coach Christina Cuello
introduced the varsity and junior varsity
cheerleading squads, including senior
cheerleaders Alex Fugate, Samantha
Raymond, Brandy Winningham, Stephanie
Cuello, Jordan Lewis, Kendra Claude and
Mindy Cunningham.
