Three candidates


for Yearty's post


being interviewed

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A spokesman for Gov. Charlie Crist confirmed Tuesday
that three candidates for the seat of suspended District 3
County Commissioner Sammy Yearty will be interviewed in
Tallahassee Wednesday, and one will be selected to replace
him on an interim basis.
The governor's appointments office will conduct the
interviews of Marsha Drew, Michael Joyner and James
Petrovich. They were among 27 Levy County residents who
applied with the governor's office to replace Yearty and
fellow suspended Levy County Commissioner Tony Parker
on an interim basis.
The appointment of Yearty's replacement will come soon
after Wednesday's interview, according to Sterling Ivey, the
governor's spokesman.
"We're not on Parker's seat yet," he said.
He described the process of filling the vacancies as "rolling
along."
Yearty and Parker were suspended from office on Nov. 5
following their federal indictment on charges of bribery and
conspiracy to commit bribery. Yearty was also indicted on a
charge of lying to the FBI, along with former county official
Pain Blair. Their trial is set for May 4.
The governor's office is also continuing to work toward
finding a permanent replacement for resigned Levy County
School Board member Billy Morrison. He resigned
voluntarily last.year following his arrest in Gainesville on a
misdemeanor sex charge.
Drew is the vice mayor of Yankeetown. She lists her
occupation as an event planner. She is a Notary Public, a
real estate associate and earned a captain's license in the
U.S. Coast Guard in 1990. She was involved in continuing
education from 1999-01 at Key West Community College
and earned a high, school equivalency from Withlacoochee
Technical Institute in 2006.
Petrovich, also of Yankeetown, is retired. He served
in the U.S. Navy from 1962-82, retiring honorably as a
commander. He holds a bachelor's degree in management

Say what?

Pay with cash & pay more

By Rick Burnham
Editor

A fairly new billing practice by AT&T Corp. has a number
of Levy County residents seeing red as they pay extra green.
A company spokesperson said a $5 convenience fee
for consumers who request a salesperson or customer care
assistance in paying their bill was instituted in March. The fee
is only charged, she said, if a customer needs assistance when
paying a bill in store. There is no charge if they use the kiosk
or automated payment method without assistance.
"The vast majority of our wireless customers can and choose
to pay their wireless bills without incurring the fee through
a variety of 'self-service methods,'" said Gretchen Schultz.
"Those methods include dialing 'PAY' from their phones
online, through automatic recurring payments, by using our
automated system on their phones, by mail, and at self-service
kiosks in our stores."
Schultz said only a very small percentage of customers ask
salespeople or customer care representatives to assist them in
paying their bill.
"As you might imagine, there is a cost to us in providing
such assistance and it takes time away from our reps, who
could otherwise be helping customers with questions about
products and services," she said. "We want to minimize these
costs so we can continue to offer great products at competitive
rates."
Schultz said customers were notified in January and February
2008 that the fee would be implemented. In addition, she said,
signage remains in stores, and sales representatives make sure
to let customers know of the charge before assistance.
Schultz said the fee would not be charged if a store kiosk
proved to be inoperable or unavailable.
That explanation does little to soothe the feelings of Jan
Sears of Chiefland.
"When you use hard-earned cash you get penalized for it. I
think that is ridiculous," said Sears. Fellow Chiefland resident
Tracy Anderson agreed.
"If you want to pay with cash, you have to pay extra. If it
is time to renew, you have to pay to renew," said Anderson. "I
think it is crazy."


It's about that time
Farmer Leslie Gore (on foot) watches as a machine lays plastic for his 190-
acre watermelon field east of Chiefland along U.S. 27A. Riding the machine is
farmer Murray Tillis and driving the tractor is James Hendrickson. The plastic
is part of a drip irrigation system, which conserves and delivers water to the
plants efficiently. Holes will be punched through the plastic in late February or
early March. Watermelon transplants will be inserted through the holes in the
plastic and planted. (Terry Witt)

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Business teacher Christina Smith has
been elected by Chiefland High School
as the 2009-2010 Teacher of the Year.
Smith has taught. at
Chiefland High School
for nine-and-a-half
years in the business and
digital design areas of
study.
Smith is currently
the Technology
Coordinator, Business
Academy Program
Director, Ready to Work

Levy County Career and,
Technical Education Webmaster.
She is the computer technology
coordinator and is the first one called
for troubleshooting when anyone has
computer problems, said CHS Principal
Pamela Asbell.
Smith also prints the school
newsletter, tickets and award certificates
for some school clubs, she said.
"She's a really competent and busy
person who lends herself to other people
when they need it," Asbell said.
Senior Rebekka Wilkerson, who has
been a student of Smith's throughout all
four years of high school, said Smith
has been instrumental in helping her
learn computer programs that she needs
for college.

Wilkerson said she plans on attending
the University of Tennessee and
majoring in business after graduating.
She said Smith makes it easy to learn
because they do something different
every day.
"She's just a
really good teacher,"
Wilkerson said.
Smith said her success
as a teacher comes from
her ability to judge if a
student is learning and
having fun at the same
time.
"If I was a boring
teacher, they wouldn't
take me," she said.
Smith started as a
substitute teacher at
ith Joyce Bullock Elementary
School 11 years ago and
said she was very lucky and grateful
to get the full-time teaching position at
Chiefland High.
She said there isn't a day that goes by
that she doesn't look forward to coming
into work. If she's having a bad day,
she comes into school and the students
cheer her up.
"It's very rewarding. The kids make
it worth it," she remarked.
Smith said she couldn't imagine
working anywhere besides CHS.
"We have a really good team," she
stated. "This is home."
Smith was nominated for teacher of
the year five years ago, but this is her

Official says wind, solar energy

not ready for prime time in Florida


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Progress Energy wind-energy expert
Denny George says the wide spread
commercial use of wind and solar energy
may be years away in Florida.
Speaking to The Greater Chiefland
Area Chamber of Commerce, George
offered a number of examples of why those
technologies will probably not work on
a commercial scale in the Sunshine State
with current technology.
George, lead account executive for
Progress Energy, noted that a 1,000
megawatt coal plant needs 1,000 acres of
land to operate, while a 1,000 megawatt
solar complex needs 6,000 acres and a
1,000 megawatt wind farm would require
16,600 acres.
George, who once worked with a
company in the northwest United States
that operated commercial wind farms, said
the wind turbines in Florida would not be
in operation 75 to 85 percent of the time.
The wind is intermittent here. During down
times, he said other types of fuel would be
needed to generate electricity.
He said wind turbines are most effective
in areas where the wind blows almost
continuously at high speeds. George said
he has worked in those areas of the country
and has seen how wind energy is harnessed
effectively.
Progress Energy has tested small scale
wind farms, he said. A small wind generator
might produce enough electricity to run the
lights in a home, he said, but the rotating

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 December 2, 2008- show that our system
exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection
By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Halo-
acetic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter
(pJL) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 85.9 p/L. The standard
for HAA5s is 60 /L, the average level of HAA5s.over the last year was 74.4 p./L.

What should I do?
Some people who drink water containing TTHAIs 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 immedi-
ately.

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 Asso-
ciation). We are hoping that by making adjustments to the system we will see a reduc-
tion in DBPs within the next few 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, espe-
cially 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 WTP.

blades of a wind turbine can be hazardous
to birds that might fly into them.
He said the blade tips of even the slowest
rotating wind turbines reach speeds of 180
mph, making them a potential hazard for
birds. He added that Florida is home to
flyways for migrating birds, making wind
farms a potential environmental issue.
As for solar, George said the residential
savings possible by installing a solar hot
water heater would depend on the number
in the household, but Progress Energy's
solar hot water heater program is designed
to save about 1,500 kilowatts per year, or
about $200,
If the cost of installing a solar hot water
heater is $2,500 ($2,050 with a company
rebate), George said the payback would
take 10 years. But he added that Progress
Energy's solar water heater program is new
and the company is still in the process of
collecting data.
Progress Energy is also obtaining
permits to operate two nuclear generating
units in south Levy County near Inglis.
George said nuclear power is the way to
reduce the country's dependence on oil and
gas to generate electricity.
"We need to do a nuclear facility because
we need to -lessen dependence on fossil
fuels," George said.
In other business, the chamber
welcomes new businesses. The newcomers

New Williston city manager says spending control needed


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Recently hired Williston City Manager Marcus M. Collins said
recently city government must begin to control spending to bring
its budget back in line.
Collins spoke in general terms, having been with the city for just 4
three weeks, but cited one example of challenges the city faces with
its budget.
He said the city generates about $620,000 annually from property
taxes on businesses -and homes, but the police department budget
alone is $1.2 million.
"That's a problem," Collins said. "I'm not blaming the police i
department. They take what you give them."-
The city manager as an individual can't make these changes
alone, Collins said. He said it would have to be a team effort
involving department heads and the city's, policy makers, the city
council. New Williston City Manager Marcus

A domestic argument in a Williston home turned violent
on Jan. 21 and resulted in criminal charges.

Yearty, Parker


trials full of


red tape

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The federal trial of Levy County Commissioners
Sammy Yearty and Tony Parker has been
postponed until May 4 and there is no telling
when they will get their day in court, but for the
time being I think it would
be ethical to give them the
benefit of the doubt. They
are presumed innocent until
proven guilty.
We in the news media
have no choice but to report
on issues like these and we
do the best we can to ferret
out the facts from the U.S.
Justice Department, the
agency prosecuting Yearty
and Parker on charges of
taking bribes. The agency is
prosecuting Pam Blair on a charge of lying to the FBI in
the same case.
The Justice Department is not buddy-buddy with most
of the news media. The agency makes it a challenge
to unearth information about criminal cases, and the
Northern District of Florida branch of the Justice
Department is more restrictive. The Northern District
limits what type of information lawyers or the federal
clerk's office can releasebefore the trial. They say the
reason for the pseudo gag order (Rule 77.3) is to avoid
prejudicing the defendants' right to a fair trial. Yeah,
right. SeePage8A for a story listing information that
cannot be released under Rule 77.3
Rule 77.3 goes much too far. I believe it is a violation
of my First Amendment rights as a member of the Press.
The'rule doesn't prohibit federal or state lawyers from
talking to the Press, but it limits what they can release
and raises the discomfort level to the point that it creates
the "chilling effect," where people don't want to talk to
us folks in the media for fear of ptpisr ule. It',agally
a back door violation of the media's First Amendrment
freedoms. I think it's absurd to claim the rule protects
defendants by silencing them before their trial. They can't
tell their side of the story to the media. The real purpose
of the rule is to shield the public and the media from
information prosecutors will use in an attempt to convict
the defendants. It's a prosecutor-friendly rule.
p That's my frustration with the Yearty and Parker case.
I know them both. I would like to believe they would c
give me an interview if they could. But they can't, even
if they wanted to. It's a shame when we live in a country
where constitutional freedoms can be infringed upon by
the very agencies charged with protecting them. The First
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is supposedly an
absolute guarantee of freedom of speech, freedom of the
press, and freedom of religion. But those freedoms are
smothered under the blanket of secrecy in federal criminal
cases in the Northern District of Florida.
The news media sometimes makes assumptions when
they write about public officials or public figures after
they have been indicted or accused of wrongdoing. The
media assumes the accused to be guilty. Many people,
including reporters and editors, believe the federal
government would never have indicted or accused these

That's a dangerous assumption, but one that people make.
I was talking to a former Levy County commissioner
at lunch the other day.and he said he had noticed I wasn't
hittingthe Yearty and Parker cases very hard. I told him
that was because Yearty and Parker have yet to tell their
side of the story publicly. I can't assume the information
presented in the indictments is true or accurate. That's
another huge assumption I can't make. I have reported
what is in the indictments, but the information is
extremely sketchy, and the U.S. Attorney's office has
been unwilling to provide more details.
The process of reporting on the case is being made all
the more difficult by the Justice Department's Internet
information site known as PACER. Users of the PACER
system can look at court opinions and court orders online
without cost, but most of the meat in criminal cases
requires payment of a fee for doing an online search.
That means if I want to see public court documents about
Yearty and Parker's case, or Blair's, I have to pay to view
them on line.


The only bright spot thus far in dealing with the U.S.
Attorney's office has been my contact with a public
relations person, Karen Rhew, who has been as helpful
as she can be, given the rules that limit what she can say.
It's a very frustrating experience to deal with the Justice
Department in general, however. With the exception
of Rhew, I find them to be indifferent, insensitive and
uncooperative in just about every way possible, given that

Point/Counterpoint


What is the appeal of Tim Tebow?


Is Tim Tebow, in fact, Superman?

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Well, it's been a few weeks since the Gators applied a
beating to Oklahoma and won the national championship.
For about a week or two all you'd hear about was how
great the Gators and.Tim Tebow are.
WeGator f couple oflQws
(we will definitely miss Percy Harvin).
but mostly highs. Now things are starting
to quiet down in the media, so it's
time to shake things up again!
Since I started working at
the Journal in October, Rick and I have had
several discussions about the
superiority of UF compared ..*..
to that other forgotten Florida
school (what was it again?
FSU?).
I graduated from UF in
December of 2007. During my UF career, it was a good
time to be a Gator. I was there for Tebow's very first
touchdown, the two basketball championships and the
2006 football championship.
Like most sane, red-blooded females, I am of the
persuasion that Tim Tebow is a good-looking young man.
I'm lucky enough to be able to say that I know this from
first-hand experience, as I used to see him about once a
week around campus. I wimped out at the last second the
one, time I had the opportunity to approach him, dazzle
him with my personality, and possibly have a chance at a
future with him. I still regret it to this day.
Some people might wonder what.the big deal is with
this guy. I would have to say those people are probably
jealous because every woman they encounter thinks
Tebow is hot. But deep down, we all know they secretly
admire him.
It's simple: It's impossible not to like him.
Even Bowden worshipper Rick has admitted to that on
more than one occasion. Even possibly going so far as to
say he respects Tebow. And Rick's not the only FSU fan
I've spoken to who can't help but like the guy.
Whether you're a guy or a girl, young or old, you have
to respect Tebow. I. don't know why I have to explain his
attractiveness because it seems obvious to me, but I will:
He's 6'3"; benches like 8,000 pounds; is the quarterback
of the best college football team in the United States of
America; has eyes you could melt into; is not afraid to
take a hit; looks good even with grass stuck to his helmet
and blood-red paint splashed on him; the list goes on and
on.
Now, let's talk about him as a person. He's not
ashamed to thank and give credit to God. He's sensitive
and sincere (I mean, I still get misty-eyed when I see his
speech after the Ole Miss game). He's a great role model
for his team and young boys.
The guy is a celebrity; some might even consider him
a superhero. You can Google "Tim Tebow fun facts" and
come back with a whole list of Web sites with quips about
the greatness of Tebow. Some of my favorites:
Tim Tebow doesn't do pushups, he pushes the earth
See Superman, Page 7A


Tebow's cool, but come on

By Rick Burnham
Editor


I broke down crying when Tim Tebow announced
he was coming back to the University of Florida for his
senior, year. And it had nothing to do with me being a
bf. Florida State, Seminole fan.,
|Jaw44tpqrie aut tbe effect Mlr. Tebow
has on fans of the female persuasion the
rabid attraction they all seem to have for
Timmy.
It's disturbing.
The extended Levy County Journal team -
counting the delivery folks and design folks and
ad folks and all consists of about 10 females.
That, along with the proximity of Levy
County to the University of Florida,
can make for a miserable existence
for Journal males who do not bleed
orange and blue.
The list begins and ends with me, since Terry Witt is a
Gator fan.
It usually begins innocently enough. Someone will
recite the old line about Superman wearing Tim Tebow
pajamas, and smiles and laughter will follow. But then
another person will wonder aloud what kind of pajamas
Tim Tebow wears, and then someone will scream, and
then the conversation will really take off.
"Is he bare-chested or does he look like Austin
Powers?" More screams.
"Boxers or briefs?" Giggles.
"What kind of girl does he find attractive?" Oohs and
ahhhs.
"What would he look like with longer hair, like
Fabio?" More giggles.
It's disconcerting.
At some point the participants will overheat, and then
they usually sit at their desks fanning themselves with
their hands. And then things will resort back to normal.
Later though, seemingly out of nowhere, "Does Tim
Tebow do yoga?" Screams and giggles combined.
It's unsettling.
What is it about Tim Tebow that drives the ladies
goofy? I did a little research to find out.
Females are known to be attracted to the rebellious
among us. Not the Confederate soldiers, and not the Ole
Miss players. The rebels who defy authority, who go their
own way while others toe the line. Like Tim Tebow, when
he got that personal foul in the national championship
game. Is Tim Tebow a rebel?
Not hardly. I interviewed several family members,
who asked not to be identified, and they said Timmy is
no rebel. In fact, they said, up to the point where he got
the personal foul, the worst thing he had ever done came
at the age of 16, when he turned over a glass of milk and
ruined his book report on "Rumpelstiltskin Diary of a
Teenage Insomniac."
So a rebel he is not.
He is an athlete, though, and truth be told, a fairly
good one. Even a Seminole fan would admit to that. But
are ladies really attracted to athletes? I did a random

Tim Tebow counted to infinity -

Life doesn't give Tim Tebow
lemons. Life asks him which fruit he
wants.
We all know he's a great athlete. I
often wonder if he's as good a person
as everyone says he is or if he just
has all of us fooled. I tend to believe
the best in people. Plus, he's done
nothing to convince me otherwise
(come on, that unsportsmanlike
conduct call was only made because
the refs felt sorry for the Sooners).
Now, I don't want anyone to get
the wrong impression about me. I
wouldn't ever embarrass myself by
wearing an "I Timmy" shirt. But
if the opportunity to be the envy of
every girl everywhere presents itself
again, you can bet I won't turn it

turns out, athletes were down a ways
on the list. The ideal guy? Five-

That ain't Tim.
So if Tim is not a rebel, and if
ladies do not necessarily gravitate
to the athletes among us, what is it
about Mr. Tebow that leaves females
gasping for breath?
I think they pity him. I think they
feel sorry for the fact that he was
home-schooled and thus somewhat
sheltered as a kid. He's the underdog,

Rule makes it tough to

The release of information in federal criminal cases, like that of Levy County
Commissioners Sammy Yearty, Tony Parker and former county official Pam Blair, is
governed by a rule that severely limits public access to information about the case.
Rule 77.3 essentially blocks the news media from obtaining details of the case, or
interviewing defendants or their attorneys, before the trial. At some point, when motions
are filed by the defense or prosecution, some details of the case make the light of day.
The rule i essentially a thinly disguised gag order intended to prevent free discussion
of federal criminal and civil cases before they reach trial. It is not a First Amendment-
friendly rule. It is a prosecution-friendly rule and nothing more.
Most of the rule is disclosed below:
Rule 77.3: Release of Information in Criminal and Civil cases. U.S. District Court
for Northern District of Florida.
(A) Release of Information by Officials General. No judicial branch employee
(including a judge's staff, clerks, probation officers, and court reporters), no officer,
employee or representative of the United States Marshals Service or court security
officer, nor any state, local or federal law enforcement officer or employee associated
with or assisting in preparation or trial of a criminal case, may disseminate by any
means of public communication, without authorization by the court, information relating
to an imminent or pending criminal or civil case that is not part of the public records of
the court.
(B) Release of Information by Attorneys Criminal cases.
It is the duty of attorneys, including the United States Attorney, who represent parties
in criminal cases, and their respective staffs, not to release or authorize the release of
information or opinion which a reasonable person would expect to be disseminated
by means of public communication, in connection with pending or imminent criminal
litigation with which the attorney is associated, if there is a substantial likelihood
that such dissemination will cause material prejudice to a fair trial or otherwise cause
material prejudice to the due administration of justice.
(2) With respect to grand jury or other pending investigation of any criminal matter,
an attorney participating in or associated with the investigation shall refrain from
making any extrajudicial statement which a reasonable person would expect to be
disseminated by means of public communication, that goes beyond the public record or
that is not necessary to inform the public that the investigation is underway, to describe
the general scope of the investigation, to obtain assistance in the apprehension of a
suspect, to warn the public of any dangers, or otherwise to aid in the investigation.
(3) From the time of arrest, issuance of a warrant, or filing of a complaint,
information, or indictment in any criminal matter until commencement or trial or
disposition without trial, no attorney nor others associated with the prosecution or
defense shall release or authorize the release of any extrajudicial statement which a
reasonable person would expect to be disseminated by means of public communication,
Witt, from Page 6A
they are paid with taxpayer dollars and are working for folks like me, a taxpayer.
I suppose one day in the distant future the American people will get fed up with a
government that creates a federal bureaucracy like the Justice Department that creates
its own rules and forces us to live by them. I don'tthink it's a radical notion to believe
the federal government should work for us rather than against us. I know the point is
arguable. The feds would undoubtedly argue that keeping information from the public
works to the advantage of Yearty and Parker in protecting their right to a fair trial.
I seriously doubt that. .

The rule also prohibits:

factual statement of the accused' name, age, residence, occupation and family status. If
the accused has not been apprehended, an attorney associated with the prosecution may
release any information necessary to aid in the apprehension of the accused or to warn
the public of dangers the accused may present.
Release of the contents of any confession, admission or statement given by the
accused, or the refusal or failure of the accused to make a statement.
Performance on any examinations or tests or refusal to take them.

Owner Ryan Bell says it's not meant to be prissy
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

BubbaQue's Restaurant, a barbeque restaurant in Chiefland's original business district,
could be mistaken for a backyard cookout if customers didn't have to pay for the food. It's
a southern-style eatery. The redneck nachos are a dead giveaway.
Redneck nachos are not from south of the border as one might suspect. The nachos are
thick French fries covered with chopped pork and a mild barbeque sauce.
Customers at BubbaQue's sit mostly on stools and eat on barrel tables. They listen to
country music and eat with plastic knives and forks on paper plates. They receive a table
marker after they order. The. restaurant has a dozen table-bearing names like Graceland
and Chiefland Water Tower..
A promotional poster on the front door advertises one item from the menu. It's called
the Mother Clucker. It's a chicken sandwich with an eye-catching name.
"We are a little edgy," said Owner Ryan Bell. "I had one older guy come into our
Bronson BubbaQue's. He said Mother Clucker? That's pretty bold. Then he said, "I'll
have one."
BubbaQue's in Chiefland has a full liquor bar, which means customers can order beer,
wine or mixed drinks.
BubbaQue's is a casual barbeque restaurant. The idea is to come in, relax and have fun
while eating, Bell said. Customers walk under a sign near the entrance that says "Now
entering Levy County. Sit down, Strap in and Hold on."
"It's not meant to be prissy," Bell said. "It's casual. It needs to be like home. The whole
idea is to have fun. I tell employees they have to have a positive attitude when they come
to work here."
There are three BubbaQue's. One is in Chiefland, the others in Bronson and Lakeland.
All three BubbaQue's have the signature entry sign alerting customers that they are
entering Levy County, even if the restaurant is somewhere else. More BubbaQue's are
planned.
Bell also owns 13 Hungry Howies pizza restaurants in the region. He has 200
employees.

End of an era

BubbaQue's in Chiefland replaced Bell's Restaurant, which Bell also owned. Bell
was 19 years old and fresh out of high school when he purchased the buffet-style Bell's
Restaurant and Catering from his father, the late Dwight Bell, former property appraiser.
That was 1996. The purchase price was $50,000. Bell's Catering continues to operate, but
Bell's Restaurant, a Chiefland landmark, has been retired.
Bell said times are changing in the restaurant business. He doesn't believe the buffet
line works in today's market with food and transportation costs so high. He felt it was
time to try something new, particularly in the modem era when people are Watching their
weight and trying to eat right.
"It got to the point where we were fighting a quality issue with the ris'mg costs," he
said. .
Bubbaque's is not named for Bell's Uncle Bubba Castell, a depiuty iheriff'frotM Cedar
Key and former Cedar Key police chief. Bell said he and two business partners, David
Midget and Ziad Kazbour, began tossmig around names using the theme of "controlled
chaos." Bell said he considered names like Bubba's White Trash Barbeque before settling
on BubbaQue's.
As for Bell's Restaurant, Bell has f6nd memories. His dad, Dwight Bell, bought it in
1978 when Ryan was four or five years old. It was Truck Town back then and the restaurant
was attached to a gas station out front. Laveme Bell said her husband came home and
casually mentioned he had bought the restaurant. The surprise left her speechless.
The building that housed Truck Town, and later Bell's Restaurant, has been torn down.
It was located next door, to what is now the Dollar General Store. The ancient oak tree
that stood near the entrance of the restaurant is the primary reminder of what once stood
there.

Learning the business

Bell learned from an early age that he could convince the cooks at his parents'
restaurant to prepare his favorite meals. His mother says hamburger steak with gravy
and onions was his favorite meal. She would leave instructions for the cooks not to feed
him. She preferred to feed him at home, but he often managed to convince the ladies at
the restaurant of his hunger. Bell said Angenetta Granger and Mickey Granger taught him
how to cook for himself.
"I learned to cook my first hamburger on an eight-foot flat grill standing on a milk
crate," Bell said. "I was probably seven or eight years old. I used to come in'every day
and hang out with the ladies in the kitchen."
In 1988 Dwight Bell moved Bell's Restaurant to Chiefland Shopping Center in the
town's old business district. Ryan Bell became his manager in 1993 and bought it from
his dad in 1996. Ryan moved the restaurant two doors down to allow for more space in
1998. The restaurant remained a buffet until Bell decided to change it to a standard sit
down restaurant with meeting rooms on the side. Now he has changed it to a barbeque
restaurant.
BubbaQue's opened a couple of weeks ago, but Bell has already had several people
comment on how moist the meat is. When they ask him how long he cooks it, he winks
and replies," till it's done," he said, grinning.


Bell joined his business partners in July for a ribbon-cutting ceremony
to open the BubbaQue's in Bronson. (Rick Burnham)

LeV


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor
A few weeks have passed since our last installment of Levy County History as recorded
in the Levy County Journal, but this week we're at it again. This time, we'll be taking a
glance back at Jan. 30, 1975.
As current Editor Rick Burnham put it: the height of the disco era. He (jokingly)
predicted the Journal from '75 would have ads for bell bottoms and platform shoes.
Well, for better or worse, I can honestly report the closest thing to that are the ads for
a dryer and permanent hair color treatment.
The last installment took a look at the paper from 1959. It included a story about oysters
from Mr. Norwood F. Ishie's slice of life column. I was happy to see when I opened up the
paper from 1975, 16 years later, Mr. Ishie was still at his place on the bottom right comer
of the front page.
He wrote about a few different topics that week in '75, the main one probably an
interesting story for a local, prominent family known as the Beauchamps:
"Then our county attorney Luther Beauchamp had a baby so I will.just have to
tell just a little about him.
About four a.m. last Thursday January 23rd his little wife gave the signal that
she had to go to the hospital. From what I hear Mr. Beauchamp jumped out of bed,
ran out of the house in his pajamas, got in the car, drove off down the street before
he realized that he didn't have his wife or had not put on his clothes. He went
back to the house, asked his wife why she was so slow. She told him that she was
not slow, he was just faster than usual. She told him that he had better get some
street clothes, at least a pair of trousers. By the time he got his britches on Mrs.
Beauchamp was in the car. We figure that Mrs. Beauchamp decided if she wanted
to go with him she had better get iti the car before he did. They finally made it to
the hospital. They found there was no need to be in such a hurry after all, as little
Lance Trowbridge Beauchamp didn't arrive until late Thursday afternoon. Daddy
Beauchamp sure had a hard time that day but when he saw that big 7 pound boy
it was worth it.
Daddy, mother and son are now back liome. All doing fine."
A couple weeks ago, Bronson experienced a power outage on Court Street when a
cable was downed. In 1975, there was a similar story, except that one included the death
of five cows and a calf. J.W. Markham, the ranch manager, found his cows dead after
being electrocuted by a fallen power line 12 miles south of Bronson.
We should be glad no one, or thing, was injured during the downed cable recently.
It seems the Journal has a liking for Christian columnists named Guy. In 1975, Guy
S. Atheam, the Pastor of Bronson United Methodist Church, took front and center on the
first page with his column "Ink Blots From The Parson's Pen."
Atheam chose to write about image for the Jan. 30, 1975, issue. He writes: "Isn't
it interesting how the word 'image' has become a part of our speech? It sounds more
impressive than saying 'picture' and less highbrow than the word 'concept.' He goes on
to tell the story about how marketing for instant coffee gave the product the wtongimage

The top half of the Levy County Journal from Jan. 30,.1975.
- one of being for lazy or rushed housewives when it first came out. The advertising
researchers decided instant coffee needed a new image, one of convenience instead of
laziness.
Mr. Ahea ties this story intoay his lesson about being better people: "Let's get our
imagination captured by positive, helpful images. Ifwe have a negative image of ourselves,
there's something to be said for getting a positive image.",
No matter the year, we all need a little food for thought and soul uplifting. We're
just lucky now because ours comes in the entertaining form of Guy Sheffield's crazy
adventures with his brother, Heath.
Other headlines from Jan. 30, 1975:

Although the publication being studied this week was printed 34 years ago, its news
is still relatable today. The names are familiar. The events are annual and ongoing. And
the lessons are still significant. That's why it's important to study our past. AsAmerican
poet and philosopher George Santayana said, "A country without a memory is a country
of madmen."

unless the ap-plicant, District
Executive Direc-tor or a Gov-
erning Board mem-ber requests
that the permit application be
referred to the Governing Board
for agency action. Amendments
will also delegate to designated
District staff authorization to is-
sue no-tices of intent to deny
permit applications that will be-
come final agency action unless
the applicant, District Executive
Director or a Governing Board
member requests that agency
action be taken by the Govern-

vised Environmental Re-source
Permit Information Manual Part
B, "Basis of Re-view" which
are being updated to reflect the
changes in permit-ting process-
Os proposed in this rulbmaking.
A minor change to 40D-40.302,

that, with respect to the related
Individual Envi-ronmental Re-
Source Permit application sub-
mitted with an application for a
general inci-dental site activities
permit, the Individual Environ-
mental Re-source Permit may
be issued by District staff or the

NOTICE OF PROPOSED
RULE
The Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District is
propos-ing to amend Chapter
40D-4.091, Florida Administra-
tive 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 Proposed Rule:
bi 40D-4.91, F-.A ;C.
This rule amendment is pro-
5osed to incorporate by refer-
ence a revision to Section 2.0 of
the BOR. Rule 40D-4.301(1)(j),
F.A.C., requires that an applicant
for an Environ-mental Resource
Permit pro-vide reasonable as-
surance that the permitted ac-
tivities will be conducted by an
entity with the financial, legal
and administra-tive capability of
ensuring that the activities will
be undertaken in accordance
with the terms and conditions
6f the permit. Section 2.0 of the
BOR estab-lishes how an ap-
plicant may demonstrate com-
pliance with this requirement,
Section 2.0 of the BOR does not
currently include the power of
eminent domain in the discrete
list of methods of demonstrating
ownership and control sufficient
to undertake the permitted ac-
tivities. In order to clarify this
oversight, the District proposes
to amend Section 2.0 of the
BOR to provide that compliance
'with this requirement may be.
demonstrated by an entity with
the power of eminent domain.
An additional revision to Sec-
tion 2.0 of the BOR is proposed
by the District to require,. In
those instances where control is
demonstrated by an entity with
the power of eminent do-main,
a permit condition prohib-iting
construction until owner-ship or
legal control is trans-ferred to
the permitted. The proposed
revision to Section 2.0 of the.
BOR necessitates the amend-
ment to Rule 40D-4.091, F.A.C.,
to incorporate by refer-ence the
revised BOR.

Adopted soldier visits local second-graders


Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The second-graders positioned
themselves expectantly toward the door
of the classroom, waiting nervously for
the arrival of their hero. Katie Corbin, the
students' teacher, almost as nervous as the
students, made last-minute arrangements to
the snack table and reminded the children
how to act when the guest arrived.
The door opened and every set of eyes
widened to get the first look of a hero in
real life. False alarm. It.wasn't him.
Several more agonizing seconds went,
by. Not a sound was made.
Finally the door opened and a boot-clad
foot and camouflaged leg stepped in.
Instead of wild screams and jumping up
and down, the students reverently stood up
and clapped.
The hero wasn't an athlete; he wasn't a
superhero or rock star. The hero was 22-
year-old Army Specialist Dusty Cason who
went to Chiefland schools his whole life
and is now on leave from Iraq for 18 days.
Every month this school year, Corbin's
second-grade class has written letters and
brought items for a care package box to
send to Cason.
The morning of Jan. 30, the students,
prepared with questions, three large gift
baskets and letters to the soldier, welcomed
Cason to their classroom.
They have been so excited to meet him,
Corbin said. It's all they talk about.'
She said they had so many questions for
him, but they narrowed it down to the six
most common, half of which were about
camels. The children were shy and quiet-
voiced as they asked the questions.
Next, snacks were handed out as
Cason began to open the gifts the children
brought for him. Since he is a Gator fan,
many of the gifts were Gator T-shirts, hats,
commemorative magazines. There was
also food like beef jerky and cookies and
books.
The children were urged to ask questions,
but many were still too star struck.
"For second-graders, it's felt 'like a
lifetime waiting for you, but I got to
thinking, it probably felt like a lifetime
for you too," Corbin said to Cason about
getting to come back home.
* Corbin decided to save the letters and
gifts from this month to give to Cason in
person instead of mailing.
. To welcome Cason more, she asked
some of the students to read their letters
aloud to him.
Many asked questions about his trip, the
weather in Iraq, what he got for Christmas,
and the most popular questions were about
camels.

Corbin asks who wants to spend the
rest of the day with Cason.


Corbin said the children have been
obsessed about camels ever since Cason
wrote about seeing them in one of his
letters.
"I wanted to ask you if camels spit or
stink," wrote Bailee Everett. And on a
more serious note, "I think of you a lot and
hope you had a very good birthday and
Christmas."
"Second-graders don't normally write
this much,. Dusty," Corbin said. "I get the
best writing when they write you."
Cason's parents, Jean and Donnie, were
on hand to witness the celebrity of their
son.
His mother, Jean, thanked everyone
for their warm welcomes and for all their
thoughtfulness..
She said their letters and gifts helped
him get through Christmas and kept him
from being sad.
The ice was finally broken when the
'children all crowded around Cason to have
a picture taken even being allowed to take
a silly picture.
After all the questions were asked and
the children were able to spend more one-
on-one time with Cason, Corbin explained
the children's excitement in preparing the
care package every month.
"They're making their parents go to
Wal-Mart when they didn't need to go to
Wal-Mart because it's box night." They
each want to bring in something different
that they like and think he will like too, she
said.
Jean Cason said she was very moved by
the letter Corbin wrote to her son.
"We hope you enjoy the box we have put
together for you," the letter read. "I included
a framed picture of my class. If there is ever
a day that you question why you joined the
Army, or if you really make a difference,
I hope you will look at their picture. You
most certainly do make a difference, Dusty.
You have a positive impact on the United
States of America every day you choose to
wear that uniform. You have an awesome
effect on one classroom full of 21 second
graders who proudly and boldly tell others
that you are their hero."
Chiefland Elementary School Principal
Patrice McCully expressed her gratitude to
Cason for being such a great role model for
the kids.
Many of the students have never met a
real soldier before, and in today's world
where most heroes are considered athletes
or rock stars, it means a lot for the young
students to have someone to respect and
look up to, she said.
"This is a memory that these children
are not going to forget," McCully said.
"Hopefully their idea of a hero is going to
be formed by you."

favorite hero, Dusty Cason.

Honors roll in

for Levy County

football players

By Rick Burnham
Editor

The 2008 football season for area teams is a distant
memory, with each of the Levy County's three squads
having finished play in mid November or early December.
The Florida High School Athletic Association provided
a refresher course of sorts last week with its announcement
of the All-State Class 3A and 2B
teams.
No fewer than six Levy County
players can be found on those
squads, beginning with Williston
Red Devils running, back Travis
Evans. Evans, who signed a letter
of intent Wednesday to attend
Georgia State University, was
announced as a first-team utility
player on defense.
Evans was announced last week at Evans
the Williston High School Football Awards Banquet as the
school's Offensive MVP for 2008.
Evans is joined on the All-State squad by several of his
Red Devil teammates, including offensive lineman Damon
Germany, a second-team selection. Two other Williston
players Jordan White and Deonte Welch also made the
team as third team selectees.
Chiefland High School put two players on the 2B team.
Stephen Davis, who played a number of positions for the
Indians in 2008, was named as a second team defensive
back on the squad, while offensive lineman Chance Hall
was selected for honorable mention.
Both Davis and Hall are seniors and were recipients of
the two of four Captains Awards handed out at the team's
football banquet Monday.


Chiefland beats


Trenton, 61-28

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland's varsity boys' basketball team easily defeated
Trenton last week, outscoring the Tigers 61-28.
Chiefland Coach Mark Lundy used his bench extensively
and instructed his players to run the offense several times
before taking a shot.
The idea was to slow the scoring to avoid running into
the mercy rule. When the point difference reaches 35, the
clock runs continuously until the game ends. That's the
mercy rule.
But Chiefland did hit five 3-point shots.
Lundy said it was senior night. He wanted his seniors to
have as much playing time as possible without running up
the score. He also wanted his bench players to have time
on the court.
Trenton was without the services of its starting center,
which hurt the Tigers on both ends of the court. The Tigers
were dominated on the boards.
But Chiefland defended its basket well and penetrated
easily for high percentage shots.
Tempers did flare during the game. Josh Wasson was
flung to the floor by the shoulders in a head-to-head play.
He didn't retaliate, and neither did his teammates. Lundy
said that type of thing can happen when the point spread
is big.
"My guys kept their heads. I'm proud of them," he
said.
Lundy complimented the parents of his players on doing
a great job all season, and the fans for being supportive.
A group of young Chiefland fans, apparently bored by
the point spread, at one point began cheering Trenton when
See Chiefland, Page 3B


On Friday, the Williston High Red Devils continued
their dominance over class 3A teams Friday. On Saturday,
the squad continued a pattern of falling just short of higher
classification teams.
Paul King scored 15 points all on 3-point shots to lead
the Red Devils past Dixie County Friday. Isaac Floyd scored
16 in a 68-57 loss to class 5A Gainesville Eastside.
King's five long distance shots were part of a dazzling
evening of outside shooting by Williston in their win over
Dixie Friday. The Red Devils connected on 11 3-pointers
during the game. Of those, two first quarter bombs from
King put Dixie County in a hole it was never able to climb
out of.
With the game tied at 7 apiece midway through the first
S period, King connected
H I Ifrom the top of the key
to put Williston up 10-7.
Thirty seconds later he
did it again, this time from the right flanks to give his team
a 13-7 lead. Dixie County never got closer than 5 points the
rest of the way.
Williston's big night ruined an otherwise stellar
performance by Dixie County's Cord Hart, who picked up
22 to lead all scorers in the game. Hart got his team off to a

Bronson High School's varsity boys' basketball
team overpowered Chiefland last week for a 60-39
win on the Indians home court.
The Eagle defense prevented Chiefland from
driving to the basket, and to make matters worse,
Chiefland was missing point guard Eugene Carter for
disciplinary reasons.
But the Eagles were firing on all cylinders
offensively, with nine players scoring. C.J. King led
the Eagles' scoring with 20 points and James Rivers
scored 14.
King hit a pair of 3-point shots and Raymie Powers
added one. That became a problem for the Indians

School selects new football coach


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Williston High School did not take long
to find a suitable replacement for outgoing
head football coach Jamie Baker.
Less than a month after Baker resigned
from the position to pursue a career as
a cattle rancher, Williston announced
that Derek Chipoletti would take over
responsibilities for the football program.
Chipoletti comes to Williston from
Fleming Island High School in Orange
Park, where he had served as offensive
coordinator since 2004. He also served
as defensive coordinator for the school in
2003. Before that, he had been head junior
varsity coach at Orange Park High School,
and also served as co-defensive coordinator


and linebacker coach at the same school.
Chipoletti played linebacker at Orange
Park from 1993 to 1995, earning all-state
and all-American honors, in addition to
the distinction as WTLV Channel 12's
"Defensive Player of the Year" in the
Jacksonville area for 1994. He went on to
play for the University of Central Florida
in Orlando.
Not surprisingly for a linebacker,
Chipoletti speaks first of defense in regards
to the keys to winning. In an application
package sent to WHS, he said the No. 1
goal is to play great defense specifically
adding that a team should not put its defense
in difficult field position. People count just
as much as strategy, he added.
"Personnel, personnel, personnel!" he
wrote.

Williston Ladies defeat


Meadowbrook Academy

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

With the girls high school playoffs fast approaching, Meadowbrook Academy coach
Bert Thomas wanted to find an opponent that would push his Lady Mustangs, one that
would prepare them for the tough games ahead.
He found what he was looking for Jan. 29 in Williston.
The Lady Red Devils ran their fast-break offense to near perfection and got 19 points
from guard Erica Mason enroute to a 46-34 win over Meadowbrook.
The Lady Mustangs, who fell to 18-2 with the loss, got 11 points from standout forward
Kimberlee Thomas.
Williston led 8-4 after one quarter, and increased their advantage to 12-5 on a shot by
Kenee Mincey moments into the second period. Meadowbrook would get to within one at
the half, however, behind the play of Thomas and Kaley McCloud, who hit back-to-back
3 pointers with two minutes left. Thomas' long-range shot tied the game at 14, but Mason
came back with one of her own as Williston led 19-18 at the intermission.
Williston pulled away in the third quarter, utilizing the fast-break potential Mason and
fellow guard Kae'etta Jackson, who finished with 9 points. Mason's 3-point play with 33
seconds left in the third put Williston up 34-25.
Afterward, Bert Thomas said the play of Williston's guard tandem was a key factor in
the game.
"Their guard play was superior to ours," he said. "That and the fact that we did not
shoot particularly well were the keys to the game."
Meadowbrook got to within 6 late in the fourth quarter on a shot by Shellee Thomas,
but Williston scored the final six points of the game all on free throws to win going
away.
Later, Williston coach Jason Odom said his team's ability to defend Kimberlee Thomas
was important.
"The key was to isolate her and make sure she did not take over the game," he said. "It
was a base defense, but we tried to ensure we always.knew where she was."
Williston's lone senior Kim Dobbins was honored as part of Senior Night before the
game. Dobbins was escorted to mid court by her parents, Rick and DeeAnna Dobbins.

Chiefland Ladies bow out

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Chiefland-concluded its 2008-09 season with a 57-36 loss
to Newberry Tuesday in the first round of the playoffs.
The Lady Indians fell behind 11-0 to begin the game and
never recovered, trailing by double digits for most of the
contest. Chiefland did get to within 5 points in the second
half at 32-27, but Newberry quickly distanced themselves
'"behind, the play'of Lavarsha Nattiel, who finished with 24
points to lead all scorers.
Chiefland (4-15) was without head coach Emily Gore for
the second consecutive contest. Gore was suspended two
games for making comments to an official during a game
against Bronson last week. Coach Janette Alexander took
her place.
But unless Gore could have guarded Nattiel, it would not
have really mattered. The Newberry guard scored 10 points
in the fourth quarter alone when the Lady Panthers increased
their lead from 10 to 21.
Chiefland got 7 points from senior Renashia Bowers in
her final game as a Lady Indian. Sharnese Rome also scored
7, while senior Katelyn Allen picked up 6. Madelyn McCray
scored 4, as did Jasmine Mitchem. Janessa Barrios and
Charlene Davis scored 3 apiece. Dessie Clemmons scored
2.
Newberry (12-10) took an early lead behind the play of
Nattiel and Stephanie Hardy, who finished with 8 points.
Marquisa Ross scored 12 for the Lady Panthers, who now
face Williston in second-round matchup on Thursday. The
other semifinal game pits Ft. White against PK Yonge.

The team used a high pressure press to disrupt the Tigers'.
offense.
The Indians held Trenton scoreless in the tlardperiod, while'
Chiefland scored 15 points. The Chiefland press was effective.
"We go as our press goes," Coach Adam Boyd said. "Our press
was working tonight. That's what carries us or kills us."
Chiefland's JV looked more like a young varsity team as it
passed the ball around the perimeter and found the open man
cutting to the basket.
The team is 6-12 on the season, but it looked better than its
record.
"I think they got sick of losing and got on each other," Boyd
said. "They are getting closer to taking responsibility themselves
on the court."
Four Chiefland players scored in double figures. Marquis
Greene led the scoring with 16 points, followed by Bo Beauchamp
with 12, Trent Perryman 11 and J.T. Bauman with 10. Bauman hit
two 3-point shots and Travis Wait, who had 5 points, hit one 3-
pointer. Josh McClelland scored 3 and Kyle Schultz 1 -- scoring
by periods for Chiefland 25-14-15-13.
Trenton scoring: Stokes 11, McGee 8, Stone 4, Rowe 4,
Perryman, Martin and Smith 2 points each, and Rowe with 1
point. McGee hit two 3-point shots, but he couldn't 'keep pace
with the scoring onslaught of Chiefland. Scoring by periods for
Trenton was 18-8-0-8.


Bronson boys slip up against Bell


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

It was one of those losses that probably should have
been a win for the Bronson varsity basketball team
Friday.
The Bell Bulldogs were in town. At stake was a
potentially higher berth in the district playoffs. Both
teams knew they had to win.
But Bronson had beaten Bell on their home turf
several weeks ago, and the Eagles were playing the best
ball of the season.
After beating Chiefland 60-39 and Union County 64-
56 earlier in the week, there was a sense that Bronson
was poised to take their third big win of the week against
Bell.
The Eagles were on a mission, and they were on a
roll.
But it didn't happen.
Bell won the game 42-40 in a nail-biter.
One of Bronson's crucial players in the paint, Kelby
Barber, ran into foul trouble early. He was pulled from
the game by Coach Aaron Haldeman in an effort to
prevent Barber from fouling out.
But with Barber sitting on the bench, the Bulldogs
took advantage of Bronson's weaker rebounding and
began to eat away at the small lead. Barber was also
missed on defense.
Bronson's brutal full court press in the final three
minutes was intended to make up lost ground, and it
almost achieved its purpose. After a missed free throw
by Bell, the Eagles were trailing by a point with 11.8


seconds left. Bronson grabbed the rebound.
C.J. King dribbled down court and fed to Enrique
Wiseman in traffic under the basket, but Wiseman
couldn't control the pass and it rolled out of bounds. Bell
regained possession. Bronson missed an opportunity to
take the lead.
With 4.8 seconds left, ,Bell inbounded the ball but
threw the ball too far down court. The ball had bounced
out of play, but a Bell player made a hustle play and
hurled the ball back at Wiseman who was chasing the
play. The ball hit Wiseman and bounced out of bounds.
It was Bell's ball 'once again.
The game was over at that point. Bell added a free
throw.
Thirty-six fouls were called in the game, 17 on Bell,
and 18 on Bronson.
Haldeman said the loss will probably pit Bronson
against Trenton in the opening round. The Eagles will
most likely play top-seeded Hawthorne in the semi-final
round.
The district playoffs are in Bronson.
A win on Friday probably would have given
Bronson a bye in the opening round. The Eagles might
have met Hawthorne for the first time in the district
championship.
Now they will meet them earlier.
"That's why tonight was such a big game," Haldeman
said.
Bronson scoring James Rivers 17, C.J. King 11,
Rodolfo Contreras 3, Raymie Powers, Virgil Greenlee,
Kelby Barber and Zach Hamilton 2 points each, and
Enrique Wiseman 1. Scoring'by periods 10-13-9-8.

when their 3-point attempts missed the
mark.
The Eagles never trailed in the game
and their lead slowly expanded in the third
and fourth periods as the Indians struggled
to find offense.
Eagle Coach Aaron Haldeman summed
up the win with one word. "Defense," he
said. "They just wanted it. We got a good
solid week of practice last week and it paid
off."
The Chiefland-Bronson matchup is not
for the faint of heart. It is a rivalry game.
Chiefland beat Bronson on the Eagles
home court earlier this year. Bronson came
into Chiefland looking for a payback. They
got it.
"It seemed like they were on a mission,"
said Haldeman. "It seemed like they had
been taking baby steps before, but it seems
like they were taking strides this week."
Chiefland Coach Mark Lundy summed
up the loss with two words poor shooting.
Chiefland shot 28 percent from the field
and 34 percent from the free throw line.
"That will do it," Lundy said. "I didn't
think we played exceptionally well tonight.
They (Bronson) are well coached and they
have a lot of good basketball players."
Lundy said he didn't want to hold out
his star point guard from the game, but he
wants the other players to know there will
be consequences for their actions.
He is extremely tight with his seniors,
most of who have been with him for four
years.
As for the game, he said Bronspn
played better. "I just don't think we played
well tonight," Lundy said. "They're a good
team, but we didn't knock down the shots
we can ordinarily make."

final period. Jawantis Collins chipped in 12 points for
Williston, while Detereon Ross scored 11. Dadrian Graham
and Marcus Williams scored 8 points each for the Red
Devils. Shea Elderidge scored 8 points for Dixie County.
Williston came out flat against Eastside on Saturday,
falling behind 10-0 before Edwards managed a layup midway
through the first quarter. The Rams would eventually take
an 18-6 lead after one quarter behind the play of forward
Epharim Bryant, who led all scorers with 19 in the game.

BMS boys complete unbeaten season


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Winning every basketball game during a season is virtually
impossible. There's always someone who is better on a given
night.
The one exception was the BronsonMiddle School boys'
basketball team this year.
No one was better.
The Eagles defeated Seven Rivers Middle School last week
to keep their season a perfect 15-0.
Middle School Coach Al Herndon substituted freely during
the game, but assigned his starters the'job of keeping the big
lead over Seven Rivets for much of the game.
The final score was 39-23.
Partisan Bronson crowd members roared with approval when
the final buzzer sounded. Eagle fans spilled onto the basketball
floor to congratulate their team., ,,
"They are a very confident group," Herndon said. "From the
first game they said 'We can do it coach. We can do it'," he said.
They were confident they could go undefeated.
"They really felt they were together, and a week or so into
practice I knew they were a month ahead of previous teams I
coached," he added.
The Seven Rivers game was a relatively easy win, even
though Seven Rivers was the tallest of any team the Eagles had
faced.
Herndon had prepared. In the final two practices before the
big game on Jan. 27, he said the boys worked harder than they
had all season. The varsity was brought in to scrimmage against
the brassy middle school boys to give them an idea of what it
would be like to play against a bigger opponent.
The players never doubted themselves.
"We're good. We played our hardest. We hustled and played
as a team," said Cordell Smith afterward.
First year players R.J. Tisdale and Jakeith McCray said they
had accomplished their goals in winning every game, and they

Eastside continued its dominance in the second quarter,
leading at one point by as many as 20 points. Williston
trailed 38-23 at the half.
But the Red Devils battled back in the second, outscoring
its opponent in both quarters. Williston trailed 53-39 at the
end of the third quarter
Williston got 16 from Floyd, 12 from Welch, 9 from
Tony James, 8 from Edwards, 5 from King, 3 from Hunt
and 2 from Coleman.
Besides Bryant's 19, Eastside got 14 from Dennis Mavin,
11 from Cesar Wright, 10 from Andre Moore and 5 from
Buzz Bell.
Earlier in the evening, the Williston JV team outlasted
Eastside's junior varsity 73-59.
Collins scored 18 and Ross 16 for Williston, while Deonte
Buie led all scorers with 20 for Eastside.

thaaked their -oach for making it possible.
"I reached my goal thanks to coach. I never would have got that
far without him," McCray said. "Each day he pushed us hard."
Herndon said the young guys really stepped up. They were a
big part of the team's success. He said the entire teamworks hard.
They refused to leave the gym at night. They begged to practice
more. Herndon affectionately called them "gym rats." He said it
was difficult to make them go home.
But he said that may be one of the reasons they were so good.
The team members played together constantly, even during the
summers.
Herndon gave the team a pizza party to celebrate the season. A
banner will be hung from the ceiling of the gymnasium lauding the
team's accomplishments.
For Herndon, his first undefeated season means better rest at
night.
"I'll get to sleep again," he said smiling. "Last night I woke up
at 4:30 in the morning thinking about this game and couldn't go
back to sleep."
His sleeplessness paid off.

Williston benefit bull ride attracts thousands


A child participating in the calf scramble grabs the flag off the calf's tail at the Pee Wee Mercer Benefit Bull Riding Jan. 31.
Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


A bullrider gets dumped off while a rodeo clown tries to dodge the bull.


For the past 14 years, thrill-seeking bull riders and a captivated
audience have come out to support a local injured rider.
Glen "Pee Wee" Mercer, from Williston, was a professional bull
rider until his neck was broken and his spinal cord, severed during
a ride 15 years ago in Brighton, Fla. Now he is a paraplegic.
The Pee Wee Mercer Benefit Bull Riding was held Jan. 31 at
the Williston Horseman's Association Park with 2,000 to 3,000 in
attendance, said Morriston rancher Andy "Boarhog" Mills, who
was in charge of the event.
Along with the money brought in from the ticket sales, there
was also a 50/50 raffle and items were auctioned off.
Over $14,770 was raised, Mills said.
Although the number of sponsors was down from in years past,
more money was raised from the auction than the last three or four
years, he said.
Mills was in the ring on horseback during the bull ride, roping
the bulls when they needed to be brought back, he said.
"That's all I live for is to cowboy up," he said.
Mills said he would like to thank everyone for the support and
another great show and continues to hope for more support next
year.

Sprin4house Qui4tors

Christmas and New Years have been wonderful
celebration events and now that we are past those two
big days, Springhouse members are ready to pick up
their needles and get back to quilting.
The first monthly meeting for both the day
and night groups was on Jan. 13 a wet, cold day. I
really thought the attendance would really be short,
but much,to smy surprise, there were 48 ladies for the
day meeting and 20 at the night meeting who braved
the cold, wet weather and met at the Springhouse
building.
Norma Birman, our new program chairperson, has
been busy getting programs and workshops planned
for the year. Tuesday's meeting was great with
Mandy Ramaswami doing a great demonstration on
mitered comers and with some other helpful quilting
hints. Quilting ladies are always eager to listen and
learn from a great quilter. Mandy is a certified Eleanor
Burns quilt instructor so she always has plenty of tips
to share with any quilter.
Jan Litzinger is the new hostess for the year and the
social period was great with her wonderful planning
and setup.
Show-and-tell had many new finished projects,
even after holiday time off. Chris Schrieber, from the
night group, displayed a quilt made for her son. While
visiting in Italy, her son requested that she make a
quilt with the beautiful tile work they viewed. So she
reproduced the images to fabric and made the quilt for
her son.
The beginner quilting classes will start for new
Springhouse day members on Jan. 22 and for the night
group on Jan. 27. There will be approximately 10 new
members in the two classes.
For additional information on Springhouse quilters,
contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.

MOVIE CHOICES FOR KIDS


NEW IN TOWN
(Running time: 96 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring Ren6e Zellweger, Harry Connick, Jr., J.K.
Simmons, Siobhan Fallon-Hogan

New in Town is a delightful romantic comedy about a
city female executive going to there frozen north cointr)
of Minnesota. Lucy Hill (Zellweger) is an ambitious 300-
something woman living in Miami. She is chosen to go
to her company's plant in Minnesota to modernize the
plant and downsize the workforce.
Intrepid and professional, Lucy arrives in Minnesota
full of corporate coolness only to be greeted by the
coldest weather she's ever experienced and the warmest
people she's ever met. Lucy's assistant, Blanche (Fallon-
Hogan), fixes her up with the best-looking guy in town,
Ted who is a widower, head of the Union and feeds her
homemade tapioca.
While New in Town doesn't have many surprises, it is a
sweet and gentle comedy about people who are opposites
accepting each other. The corporateheartlessness from
the central office is offset by Lucy's entrepreneurial
efforts. I liked the message sent about corporations
seeing that there are real people with families working
for them and perhaps they need to find other solutions to
bottom line problems rather than firing people.
There is no violence, just a drop of bad language
and no sex. Better than sex are the scenes of attraction
between Ted and Lucy, showing a growing desire but
that's all. New in Town, a funny chick flick, is very
appropriate for children 10 and up who can understand
about the work issues.

TAKEN
(Running time: 93 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Famke Janssen

Wow! Who thought Liam Neeson would be the central
character in an action picture? In Taken he plays a. former
.GIJA-spy-govpeAnm t-enforcer type 'who .h s given up his
.-career-to spendmore-time with 'is"hughiter. Though his job
forced him to be away from her when she was little, she has
always been the center of his life.
Knowing what he knows about the corrupt side of life, Dad
is overprotective. So when his daughter needs his permission
to travel to France with a girlfriend, he is reluctant. He asks
for details but gets accused of being difficult.
After he gives in he discovers that his daughter lied about
the purpose of the trip. Then the adults who are supposed to
be in Paris chaperoning the girls are not there.
The gullible girls are targeted at the airport by an attractive
young man working for a slave trade prostitution ring. The
daughter is on the phone with Dad when the bad guys break
in and take her friend and then her. Dad jumps on a plane
and flies to Paris to recover his daughter and the action takes
off.
Violence is at the heart of this movie. Dad kills many
men in quest of his daughter. He fights, shoots and chases
down the bad.guys. Once the action gets going, there isn't
a moment to take a breath. Bad language, sexual situations,
prostitution and drugs are part of Taken.
What I liked about this film, besides the action, was the
message, that teens think they are safe everywhere, but bad
judgment can lead to serious consequences. Taken shows a
seedy side of life. It should be okay for kids 13 and up and
parents who can take the violence and the threat to a child.

The Super Dooper Bowl


That's what my favorite high school English teacher
said would come next after the first few Super Bowls had
been played in the late '60s. Little did he know just how
many bowl games and all-star games would grace out TV
sets, not that I'm complaining. I love football, live at the
high school stadium or almost live from my recliner.
My entire family is passionate about the game, proof
being that in the '60s, long before cable, my father had
three TVs playing at once on Thanksgiving Day. At that
time, we were a house divided three Georgia Bulldog
fans and three Georgia Tech fans, which, of
course made everything more interesting.
My father taught me that screaming at the
television is socially acceptable behavior;
although, my dog Snoopy does not think so.
He leaves the room whenever I'm watching
the Dawgs. I think maybe it's that whole, "Go
Dawgs" thing. He's so smart that he takes it literally and goes.
My two older brothers taught me the fine art of "in your
face" rivalry. The oldest was the Dawg and the younger
was the Yellow Jacket, which is ironic because he ended
up being Georgia coach Mark Richt's pastor while Mark
was at FSU anl now he is the biggest Dawgs fan ever. But
while still a buzzing bee, after a particularly ugly match
between the two teams in Atlanta, he left the game early in
order to purchase banner paper, upon which he painted the
score (Tech the victor, of course) and attach said banner to
an 1-20 overpass so that my other brother and father could
behold the wondrous sight on their sad journey home.
Now I know that I'm smack in the middle of Gator
Country, as my precious niece and nephew keep reminding
me. (Somehow 49 to 10 constantly finds its way into our
conversations.) But I will venture to say that even here,
the name Herschel garners some little measure of respect
and awe. For those of you living on Mars for the last thirty


years, that would be Herschel Walker, of course.
So you can imagine my joy when I was able to actually
meet Herschel in person in the summer of 2004 while
working at our picture framing/art store in Georgia. He had
come to town secretively to meet with a local restaurant
owner, said business being located adjacent to us. He was
there to cement a deal helping out the Boy Scouts and did
not want any publicity about his visit.
Well, we were good friends with the waiters at said caf6
and they apprised me of his arrival. I was ecstatic. Just the
day before, one of our artists had delivered the
S most gorgeous red, black and white handmade
afghan, she being a Dawg herself. I called one
of the waiters over, told him to give #34 the
afghan as a gift from us, the only stipulation
being that he would come over and meet me.
And he did just that. Wow. Unless you have
met one of these pro football players in person, nothing
prepares you for their size. Not to mention that it was
Herschel. As I related to you in another of my harrowing
life experiences, Wrightsville, Georgia, is famous for the
birth of two people: Herschel and my mother, God rest her
soul. She was in the hospital then, going to meet the Lord
just two months later.
I explained the situation to this world famous football
player and he took the time to pen her a personal Get Well
card, complete with Scripture. But what I remember the
most is his unbelievable humility. He was so gracious and
gave all credit for his success to our Lord. I don't know
what he would have made of the fact that I used to rival
even Larry Munson in my screams to "Go you Herschel
Walker!!" I just know that I'm glad that I was raised with
a passion for the pigskin.

Chiefland celebrates



program on the rise


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor
Head football coach Ajay Ulmer had a plan
when he arrived at Chiefland High School, one that
would not only improve the team on the field but
the caliber and makeup of the men who put on the
Indians uniform.
Two years later, the consensus among those who
follow Chiefland Indians football is that Ulmer's
plan is right on track.
More than 100 crowded into the Chiefland
Elementary School cafeteria Monday to celebrate
the 2008 season and look ahead with pride at what
promises to be a bright future for the team, the
school and the city.
Parents, players, cheerleaders and school
officials listened as Ulmer spoke of goals obtained
and opportunities seized.
"We topped our win total from last year, and I
am extremely proud of the season we had," he said.
"The 5-5. record, when you look at it, on paper is
not always the best looking thing. But the strides we
made off the field, and the strides we made on the
field, combine for a very successful season."
Ulmer spoke at length of the season-opening
victory, a come-from-behind 28-21 win over Dixie
County. The crowd applauded as Ulmer spoke of his
team's big night in Dixie.
"I knew we were where we wanted to be as a
team after that game," he said. "We showed we had
the guts to play hard and play together as a team. I
really feel like that game was a defining point, even
though it was the first game of the season. That game
was the heart of our team. We had some other games
where we nlaved awesome football and played


together as a team, but the Dixie County game was
a defining point."
Ulmer thanked the parents of this year's team for
taking care of their sons long after the helmets and
pads have come off.
"A lot of (our success) has to do with not only the
young men who are here, but also their parents and
their parents' commitment and ability to guide them
when they are not around us," he said.
Ulmer and his coaching staff bid farewell to
a dozen of those players, seniors who helped put
the team back on the map in terms of high school
football. Four of those Stephen Davis, Chance
Hall, Tommy Sheffield and Zach Tyson received
the Captain's Award, signifying their hard work and
sacrifice in making sure the team remained focused
each week.
"The coaches can only do so much," he said.
"There are certain times when a player needs to
stand up and say 'Hey fellas, I am serious about this
game. We need to be better prepared mentally.' The
voices of these guys were heard and respected by
their teammates."
Ulmer's voice has also been heard, as evidenced
by the show of support from parents and from the
Chiefland Quarterback Club. The coach said there is
much work still to be done, but they are on their way.
"When I came here last year my goal was to
improve the program not just the respectability on
Friday nights as far as the product we put on the
field," he said. "The most common way to measure
that is wins and losses, but there are lots of other
ways to measure that in my opinion. We are trying
to really do some good things in their lives a8 well
as on the football field, and I think we are making
great strides at that."

have the ability," said Head Coach AJay Ulmer.
