County will study how to spend $1.2 million


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Arevamped version of the county's space-needs committee has received
approval by the Levy County Commission in time to take on a big job
- deciding how to spend $1.2 million of court facilities' money.
The money was set aside to build court facilities that some county
officials believed would be constructed along north County Road 337
at the county's future courthouse annex area a half mile from the Levy
County Jail.
When the economic recession hit and the county's revenues declined,
the money just sat there in a bank account. No decision was ever made
on how to spend the money. There was some talk of spending the money
adding court facilities at the Levy County Courthouse.
How much can $1.2 million buy? The committee never decided what it
wanted to build, and so the project was never bid.
The revised space committee will consist of about 12 members and will
include County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell, the constitutional,
officers including the clerk of court, supervisor of elections, sheriff, etc.


and a representative for the judges. The new makeup of the committee was
approved at the Feb. 3 county commission meeting.
County Attorney Anne Bast Brown felt the committee should be subject
to the state's Sunshine Law, requiring advertised public meetings, because
it acted in an advisory role for the county commission. Committees that
advise county commissions are subject to the Sunshine Law.
Piggybacking?
Commissioners agreed in a 2-1 vote to adopt a policy that allows
departments to piggyback on the bid contracts of other counties. The
process allows the county to bypass the usual bidding process locally.
"It saves us cost and time," said County Administrator Fred Moody.
Bell voted against the measure, while Commissioners Danny Stevens
and Lilly Rooks approved it. The commission has. only three members at
this point, due to former chairman Sammy Yearty and Commissioner Tony
Parker being suspended as a result of their indictment on bribery charges.
Bell was worried that local contractors would not be able to bid on
county contracts if the county just hitched itself to a neighboring county's

Tavern owner finds resistance to opening on Sundays


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The owner of Junction Tavern in Williston
has requested permission from the city to
sell alcohol on Sundays between 1 p.m. and
midnight, but Judith A. Yaeger has already
run into opposition.
When she brought the request to the City
Council last week, First Baptist Church
Pastor Tony Clubb asked for the council to
continue showing respect for churches and

"It does respect the churches," Clubb said of
the current ordinance. "I am asking for some sense
of respect for that day and that day alone."
Yeager reminded council members that grocery
stores, convenience stores and drug stores already
can sell alcohol on Sunday in Williston. On-
premise consumption is barred on Sundays, but
people can buy alcohol and take it home to drink.
"I am not quite sure as to why this ordinance
was put into place many years ago, limiting only
the on-premise license holder to be closed on
Sunday, which only pertains to myself over a

Sales tax increase proposed

at school board meeting
By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor
A new plan designed to bridge the gap created by education budget cuts
and the nationwide econrimic recession was presented at the Levy County
School Board Meeting Feb. 3.
Cindy Roach, president of the Levy County Education Association,
addressed the school board and audience during the opportunity for
discussion and presentation of non-agenda items.
The Florida Education Association has proposed a bill to the state
'legislature that calls for a 1-cent sales tax increase for three years that will be
earmarked for public education, Roach said.
The penny sales tax increase would raise $3.5 billion per year and $10.5
billion in three years for the entire state, she said.
Two percent has already been cut from the school budget statewide this
year, she said over the phone Monday. The Florida legislature will reconvene
in March to discuss cutting possibly 10-12 percent, she said.

Council members voted 4-1 to instruct City
Attorney Norm Fugate to draft a revision to the
city ordinance that bars on-premise Sunday sales.
The amended ordinance would allow on premise
sales of alcohol between 1 p.m. and 12-midnight
at the tavern or any other business desiring to do
the same thing. The first public hearing for the
ordinance will be Feb. 17 at the regular city council

Gala raises money for students
By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor
The Chiefland Elementary School auditorium was transformed into a
"place where dreams come true Feb. 7.
The Ninth Annual Superintendent's Gala presented by the Levy
County Schools Foundation attracted 240 benefactors hoping to enhance
the future of select Levy County seniors.
The'-Superintendent's Gala is held- every year, to raise money for
scholarships for deserving local students to continue their education, said
Laura Slaback, executive director of Levy County Schools Foundati9n.
Last week's event raised close to $20,000, she said.
In this tight economy and with the tickets $50 each, Slaback. said she
was pleasantly surprised that -the number of attendees ,was. around the
same as it was last year.
"As a matter of fact, we had to keep adding tables and chairs at the last
minute,'? she said.
A gourmet dinner was prepared by students in the Williston High

High School National Honor Society. students.
Entertainment was provided by the Central Florida
Community College Jazz Ensemble, Chiefland High
School senior Zach Tyson and his mother, Becky Tyson.
Luther Beauchamp won the first annual Alumni of the
Year award.
Beauchamp said when a friend of the family had
something nice done for her, she used to say "you shouldn't
have done that but I'm glad you did." "That's how I feel
about this presentation tonight," he said.
Levy County School Board Superintendent Bob
Hastings introduced a Chiefland High School graduate and
scholarship recipient from last year who shared her story
about what the money has meant to her.
Currently a student at Central Florida Community
College majoring in nursing, Saundra Stephens comes


from a single-parent home and said without the money
she received from the Levy County Schools Foundation,
college would have been very difficult.
The scholarship money she received was used to
purchase textbooks and a new laptop for online curriculum,
Stephens said.
Slaback said Stephens was a really great spokesperson
for the scholarship program because she is such a good
example of a deserving student.
And as a nursing student, she will give back to the
community in that way as well, Slaback said.
Others who have given back to the community in the
form of donations to the foundation were recognized as Gold
Patrons (donations of $1,000), Silver Patrons (donations of
$500) and Bronze Patrons (donations of $250).
Slaback said as well as scholarships, the foundation also
helps with classroom grants.


Tax, from Page 1A
"That's a pretty hearty hit," she said. "I don't know where
they'd cut 10-12 percent and still function."
"The Florida Education Association has proposed the 1-.
cent sales tax because they think it'll be a fair way to recoup
the revenue," she said.
Levy County School Board Superintendent Bob Hastings
,said it would be important that the bill was specifically
earmarked so that the money raised was spent only for public
education.
Hastings said he wanted to encourage everyone to contact
their legislators requesting public education back on track.
"I do not believe they are fulfilling their obligations," he
said.
The Florida Education Association has scheduled a Rally
for Education Feb. 28 at the University of Central Florida
Arena.
"This is not a fix," she said. "This is just a short-term
solution to get us back on track."


Retirement!
Friends and family members joined Louise B Breeden to celebrate her
retirement from the Perkins State Bank Board of Directors at a reception
held at the Williston Branch Jan. 30. Breeden had served Perkins State
Bank in various capacities in her 65 years of service, including serving
nearly 30 years on the board. Breeden announced her retirement from the
board as of Dec. 31. Breeden began her career with Perkins State Bank
in 1943 filling checks and running errands after school and on Saturdays.
Breeden retired from her position of vice president in 1993 after 50 years
of service. President/CEO and Chairman of the Board, Frank Etheridge,

Program certifies Levy County students as ready for work


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

One of the challenges young people face when they leave high school and enter the
work force is proving to future employers they can do the job, especially if they have no
work experience.
The Levy County School District this year is offering the Florida Ready to Work
program aimed at providing students with a certificate indicating they have a good
education and are ready for work.
The program tests students in the areas of applied math, locating information and
reading for information. They can emerge from the testing with one of three certificates
that can be shown to a future employer.
A bronze certificate means the person has the skills to handle 35 percent of the jobs
today and a silver certificate means he or she has skills for 65 percent of the jobs. Gold
certificates show the person can do 90 percent of the jobs in the market today.
Students who earn these certificates will receive a diploma at graduation indicating
what level of competency they have achieved.
"It will tellpotential employers about the type of basic education that person has," said
Donnie Lane, director of Cooperative Diversified Education (CDE) in Levy County. "Do
they have potential? It measures their potential."
Students in career programs in their junior and senior years will be required to take the
Ready to Work tests, but other students can take the test voluntarily. It never hurts when
an employer can look at a certificate and know they are talking to someone who can learn
to do the job, Lane said.
Lane was busy testing students Friday in the practice testing phase of Ready to
Work. Students take the tests on computers in a computer lab. The computer software
coursewaree) scores them on how well they are doing and tells them where they are weak
or strong.
Students can score up to a maximum of seven on each of the tests. If the scores are low,
they can learn how to improve their math. and reading skills through remediation. They
can retake the tests to earn higher scores.
"The intent is to expose students to the curriculum and learn where they are," said Carol
Jones, career and technical education coordinator for the school district. "If the student is

struggling and they are scoring a one or two, we want them to get remediation."
The practice tests can teach students what they may have forgotten from earlier classes
such as fractions or multiplication, or teach them what they may not have learned. It
can also help them earn a higher level certificate, perhaps a silver certificate or a gold
certificate instead of a bronze.
"The goal is to have every one of our students ready to work," Jones said.
Jones credits Lane's enthusiasm for the program with making it a success. Lane has
tested 425 students at Bronson and Williston High Schools.
Lane has spent a lifetime in vocational education, but he said teachers have never had a
tool this powerful before. He likes the fact that the courseware allows students to improve
educational skills in areas where they may be weak.
"To me, the main selling point of the program is you have a way to remediate and
improve their scores," he said. "We've been pleasantly surprised. We had one kid turn in
a perfect score, and he's in building construction."

February has been dedicated Career and Technical
Education Month and with over 750 Levy County students
currently enrolled in Florida Ready to Work, that is
something to celebrate.
Five students participating in different Career and
Technical Education programs like Biotechnology, the
Health Academy, the Business Academy and FFA visited
the Levy County School Board meeting Feb. 3 to talk
about the importance of their programs.
Sage Maldonado, a Health Academy and Business
Academy student at Chiefland High School, said he plans
to be an emergency medic. and would like to go to the
Naval Academy after high school. He said he is currently


CPR and First Aid certified.
Carol Jones, Levy County School Board Career and
Technical Education Coordinator, shared the Career and
Technical Education Web site, which outlines programs that
allows students to earn and articulate credit through Central
Florida Community College and Santa Fe College.
Jones said the Career and Technical Education programs
give high school students experience in practical real-life
application.
Career and Technical Education programs provide
a school-to-career connection and a backbone for the
workplace, Jones said.

Deputies arrest 13-year-old for incident involving scissors


A 13-year-old Bronson boy was arrested at Bronson
Middle School on Feb.2 after stabbing two students with
a broken pair of scissors and holding the blade against the
neck of a third student.
The boy was arrested on charges of possession of a
weapon on school grounds, a felony. He was also arrested
for battery, a misdemeanor, and suspended for 10 days.
One victim said he was stabbed in the right shin and the
other reported being stabbed in the upper left thigh. Neither
was injured due to heavy clothing. The third student who
had the 3 2z inch blade held against his throat said he was
afraid to move for fear the blade might cut him.
The boy carrying the broken scissors blade showed it
to a substitute teacher and explained he was playing with
the blade and may have made a gesture to stab someone,
according to an arrest report.
A 53-year-old Inglis man admitted burglarizing a home
on Jan. 17 and stealing furniture and appliances to sell for
crack cocaine.
Daniel J. Marcinko, 42 Daisy St., was arrested on charges
of burglary and two counts of grand theft in connection


with the Jan. 31 break in at the home of Mark Sullivan of
Key West.
Marcinko contacted Sullivan and told him that he and
a woman known only as Cathline had entered Sullivan's
home and removed a couch, love seat, stove and television
set. He had sold the property in the Dunnellon area but was
not sure which house it was delivered to or who bought it.
The investigation revealed Marcinko also stole a second
television and more furniture, although he denied taking
the additional items, investigators said. Marcinko said he
had been high on crack cocaine for three days before taking
the property. Bond was set at $7,500.

meeting, and the second will be March 3.
Yeager originally asked for permission to operate from 7 a.m. until midnight, the same
as other businesses, but City Manager Marcus Collins negotiated with her and they agreed
on 1 p.m. as the starting time.
Joe Ball said alcohol has devastated his family on both sides, and he felt adding Sunday
as a day to drink alcohol wasn't right. He said the seventh day of the week, the Sabbath,
is set aside as something special.
"The Word says it's set apart as holy," he said.
If a majority of the council wants to set aside the day for drinking, Ball said "we have
a real problem in this town."
Becky Stevens, a licensed clinician and social worker in health services, said if the
council could sit in her seat and see the destruction of families by alcohol, they might have
second thoughts about opening up the drinking to seven days.
Kathleen Wheeler told council members the gateway drug for young people is beer,
not marijuana. When the gate is opened to drinking beer, wine and liquor, she said, "Don't
think it's not the start of drugs."
"If you just see the statistics oh family abuse you would not consider opening another
door anyway," she said.

bid, and she didn't like the
idea of piggybacking on bids
for services. She felt local
residents might offer lower
bids.
Stevens said the
piggybacking policy just gives
the county the option of using
that procedure.
The county has used
piggybacking bids in the past,
but there was no formal policy
to establish guidelines on how
it should be done.
Discontinuing Bonuses
In other business:
Commissioners voted to
discontinue giving employees
bonuses for becoming certified.
The county has raised the bar
on its hiring guidelines and
most of the employees it hires.
already have the certifications
in place. Moody described the
elimination of the bonuses as a
housekeeping chore.
Commissioners voted to
seat School Superintendent
Bob Hastings on the Nature
Coast Development Council.
He is one of five public officials
who sits on the nine-member
economic development board.
The board voted 2-1 to
authorize Landfill Director
Benny Jerrels to sign five
environmental permits. Bell
objected to a staff member,
Jerrels, taking over a function
that had been handled by the
county commission in the
past.
"Why are we changing if
there's not a problem?" Bell
said. "I'd rather it stay within
our purview if there's nothing
wrong."
Jerrels said it wasn't his
idea. He said Andrew Carswell
from Mills Engineering,
the county's engineering
consultant, asked him to bring
it to the board.

Butterflies,



dog parks, &



other stimuli
By Rick Burnham
Editor

IP reaching to the choir.
That's what I am doing this week, and I
realize that. But certain
things need to be said,
and who better to run off at the
keyboard than yours truly. .
So here goes: We have
elected the wrong people to run "
the country. I know, I know. '
The final results from the
November elections showed
that Levy County voters
chose the other guy for the
Oval Office, and in previous .
Congressional elections we
have normally opted for a more
conservative approach.
So I am preaching to the choir when I complain about
elements of the gazillion dollar stimulus package being
proposed by our leadership in Washington.
p Shelling out $886 thousand for a 36-hole Frisbee golf
course in Austin, Texas is just wrong. I am certain the
folks in Austin are honest, hard-working folks who praise
the Lord on a regular basis and keep family values as a
top priority. But they don't need a Frisbee golf course, at
least not one that I have to pay for and you have to pay
for. Not one that our children will still be paying for 30
years from now.
Paying $4.5 million for an "eco park" and butterfly
garden in Boynton Beach, Fla. is equally ridiculous. I like
,butterflies as much as the next guy. They're soft and fluffy
and colorful and all that, but I don't need $4.5 million
worth of them. That is a lot of pampered butterflies in my
opinion, ones that my grandchildren and yours will get to
pay for.
Earmarking $400 million for sexually-transmitted
disease prevention is troubling. Here's some prevention
i advice, and,it's a bit cheaper than $400, million:, before
taking that ultimate step to become intimate, gpt-to know
the other person a little bit. If it turns out that they spend
a great deal of their time engaging in risque activities,
then find someone else. There you have just saved $400
million. I see no point in spending my money and yours
.and that of our children on people who can't keep their
britches on for more than five minutes at the time.
Spending another $400 million for scientists to
conduct climate change research gives me a headache. At
first it was global warming, with Al Gore running around
screaming that the sky was falling and we all had better
"change our ways. At some point, however, that whole
scenario failed to hold up. For example, a couple of years
*ago South America had its coldest winter ever. Ever. Soon
after that, a lot of scientists came out to say they thought
the whole thing was a scam.
Soon, "global warming" became "climate change"
-and the doomsayers said if we didn't start doing things
* differently there would be hell to pay. Decrease our
carbon footprint, they all said. So I went out and got
some size 10 shoes without carbon in them and felt better
immediately.
Here's the deal. I am betting that the climate changes
naturally. I am betting that the Earth's climate has varied
over time since God created it. And I am fairly certain
nothing useful will come out of the $400 million study
produced by this stimulus package. So don't do it.
And don't give Virginia Beach, Va. $1.8 million to
,establish new tennis courts. Here's an idea: fix up on the
Sones that you already have. Get a bucket of green paint
and go over the whole thing. Then get some white paint
Sand put lines on it. Wala, Tennis courts. You might have
,to buy some new nets, but I am willing to bet that you
could do the whole thing for under $100,000. So let's
rethink the $1.8 million.
SAnd don't give Chula Vista, Calif. $500,000 to
establish a place for dogs to run off the leash. How much
Does a chain-link fence cost anyway? That's all it takes,
right? Just buy a lot somewhere. It doesn't have to be
Waterfront dogs just want to run around, dig in the grass
and sniff each other once or twice. I am thinking any ole
lotwill do. Then put a chain-link fence around it. $10,000
i should do it, not half a million dollars.
It should come as no surprise that a fair amount of the
stimulus package money would be spent in California.
That's the home of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi,
who gets credit from many for having penned this
"emergency" package. Pelosi, by the way, is the one who
recently said that the stimulus package must be approved
soon because 500 million American jobs are being lost
every month. There are roughly 300 million America
Citizens, and as we all know, not every one of them works.


; Mrs. Pelosi, the third-ranking individual in the United
States, is a birdbrain.
- On the other hand, both our local representatives
- Cliff Stems and Ginny Brown-Waite voted against
the stimulus package. We knew they would. That's why
,we put them there, to exercise some common sense,
something not exactly in abundance in other parts of the
country.
You know that already. I am just preaching to the choir.

Stimulus plan should create jobs


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The debate over the $820 billion economic
stimulus plan in Washington has made me.
ashamed to be a Democrat.
I don't see the bill putting anyone back to
work in Levy County. I see the bill as nothing more than
a slick partisan bill that President Barack Obama and
the Democratic majority attempted to muscle through
Congress.
Whatever happened to the bipartisanship Obama was
promoting? Very few Republicans signed on to the bill.
What about his agenda to raise the bar for ethical conduct
among the nationally elected leaders?
Some portions of the bill, such as the $1,000 income
tax deduction for families, a $500 income tax deduction
for individuals, and the highway and road construction
projects, were a legitimate attempt to give the economy a
boost, but too much of the stimulus package had nothing
to do with blunting the recession.
This bill was mostly politics in my view. What irritates
me is the importance of the bill. We're all being impacted
by the recession. Nothing is more important than
stimulating the economy.
CNN.com carried a list of items that were partially
cut from the stimulus bill or entirely cut. I have included
them in an accompanying story. I think you can see how
much pork, fat and nonsense is in the bill by looking
through th6 list, such as $75 million for the Smithsonian,
$55 million for historic preservation and $98 million for
school nutrition. How would those monies have helped
stimulate the .economy? Why are they in the bill at all?
Who do they think they are fooling?
All three of the items cut from the budget are worthy
projects in a different context. We need school nutrition.
The Smithsonian is a great institution. Who wouldn't
support historic preservation? But would spending this
money add jobs to the economy? I seriously doubt it.
I asked a friend of mine who tends to be on the
conservative side what she would like to see done to
stimulate the economy. She wrote me a brief e-mail on
the fly which said:
"Cut capital gains taxes so people will be
motivated," she said. Capital gains are earned by selling
property, stocks, bonds or precious metals. You pay taxes
on the profits. Cutting taxes on the profits would leave
more money in your pocket.
"Lower taxes on small businesses. This would help
stimulate job growth," she said. If small businesses have.
more money left over after making the payroll and paying
the taxes, they can use that money to create jobs.
"Lower corporate taxes. After Ireland lowered its
corporate taxes to 12-13 percent, their economy started
growing again. Corporate taxes in the U.S. are triple that
of Ireland's," she said.
"Lower income taxes so we can spend more money
in the economy," she added.
She doesn't think a one-time stimulus check of $600
would help because many people might not spend the
money. Due to fear, they might just throw it in the bank or
pay off a debt.
I like her suggestions, but I have some of my own
Why not give people $5,000 cash to purchase a new
car or truck. The check could only be used for purchasing
a new vehicle and it would be good in 2009. Car
dealerships would have to exercise the same caution they
usually do in screening for credit. But it would put a lot
of people back to work in Detroit building new cars and
trucks. Foreign auto makers who have plants in the U.S.
should be able to take advantage of the program, provided
they document that the cars or trucks were manufactured
in this country. I think people who earn $45,000 or less
annually should be eligible for the program. Everyone


else can afford to buy their own vehicles.
We really need to stimulate the home construction
industry. I think it would be useful to create a program
that gives moderate income home buyers a grant
- perhaps as much as $30,000 -- to make a down payment
on a small lot and a home that would have to be built
from scratch. That would put a lot of builders back
to work and add billions to the economy. And a lot of
people would get new homes. The same precautions
about screening for credit would have to be employed.
The home-building industry is one of the biggest in the
country. Right now the industry is flat on its face. If we're
going to spend $900 billion, let's get some bang for our
buck.
As an alternative, or perhaps as a joint measure; grants
of $10,000 to $15,000 could be given top'eople tfolite
carpenters, roofers, plumbers etc. to do home repairs. It
would also put a lot of people in the construction industry
back to work.
I like the idea of giving small businesses tax credits to
encourage job creation. I wouldn't tie the tax reductions
to jobs. I think a tax credit for small businesses would
stimulate money flow in the U.S. by cutting small
business some slack. Small businesses provide the bulk
of the employment in the United States, but they don't
get the same tax breaks as corporate America. They don't
have equal lobbying power in Washington.
I think people who don't file itemized income tax
returns (those who take the standard deduction) should be
able to take advantage of certain deductions nevertheless,
such as claiming all their car mileage that results from
using their car or truck for work, claiming all money
spent on health care, claiming all money spent for daycare
if they have children, and claiming a sizeable deduction
for interest paid on a car loan, sales taxes paid on the
car and mortgage interest. Tax check refunds would be
much larger if these reforms were enacted. Some of these
deductions existed in the past. Some of the deductions
have been for itemizers only. I would give them to both.
The working man or woman needs these breaks to be able
to make a living, survive and pay the bills. The working
person doesn't have accountants and powerful corporate
lawyers at their disposal, nor do they have lobbyists in
Washington to do their bidding. Congress needs to make
these reforms to stimulate the economy.
I also believe the administration of President Barack
Obama should begin to look at ways to control gasoline
and oil prices as part of the stimulus package. I've
noticed gasoline prices are rising again. The price for
a regular test gallon of gasoline is right at the $2 mark.
The goal should be to cap prices at no more than $2 per
gallon and begin to look at an accelerated program to
tap new and undiscovered domestic oil and natural gas
reserves. Perhaps in a decade or more, the economy can
be switched to one that uses less fossil fuel, or very little,
or perhaps none at all. But for now, we're stuck with
technologies that rely on the dinosaur era for power.
One of the reasons the economy crashed last year was
that gas and diesel prices reached the $4 per gallon mark.
It robbed Americans of income. The high gas and diesel
prices forced the business community to pass on its higher
fuel costs to consumers. We're still paying higher prices
for food, clothing and just about anything we consume.
It was destabilizing for the economy. Everything that
reaches the marketplace today is hauled with fossil fuel
engines. We need to tap new power sources. But for now,
not everyone can afford to buy hybrid cars and trucks,
solar cars or hydrogen cars. Not everyone can afford to
buy cars that get 50 miles to the gallon. Not everyone can
afford to buy a car period.
I think Obama should, to some extent, follow the
lead of President Franklin Roosevelt who created 8
million jobs during the Great Depression 75 years ago

Letters to the Editor


Don't assume too much

"The news media sometimes makes assumptions ..." reporter Terry Witt
wrote recently. And, in fact, Mr. Witt made some assumptions in two recent
articles.
On Feb. 5 he wrote, "The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is
supposedly an absolute guarantee of freedom of speech ..." That is a false
assumption. Both "hate speech and speech that creates a "clear and present
danger," such as "falsely shouting 'fire' in a crowded theater" have been
cited as limitations on free speech by the U.S. Supreme Court. Free speech
is not an absolute right.
"In Otter Creek, ..." he wrote on Jan. 29, "... the clock hasn't moved
in more than 50 years." That is another false assumption. The fact is that
the Town of Otter Creek is a progressive, proactive community that has
positioned itself to handle potential growth in a planned manner. For
example:
Otter Creek has identified and created by ordinance a local historic
district to preserve those assets that make it unique among disappearing
Florida communities;
Otter Creek has invested more than $1 million in grant funding for a
water system capable of serving 10 times its current diminished population;
Otter Creek has a state-of-the-art GIS (Geographical Information
System), provided through funding by the Suwannee River Water

Saluting Levy County's bus drivers


Each day, more than 480,000 school buses
take more than 26 million students to school
in the United States. In Levy County, we are
fortunate to have-77 Bus Drivers and 10 Bus
Aides who transport and supervise 4,350 students
to our local schools. Too often, however, we
take these drivers for granted and forget the
important role they play in the education of our
children.
Not only do they safely transport our children
to school each day, but they also provide access
to education that some might otherwise not have.
During the month of February, the School Board
of Levy County is taking time to celebrate the
third annual national Love the Bus school bus
safety program to thank our bus drivers and aides
for their contributions to our community.
Love the Bus is a national program founded in
2007 by the American School Bus Council and
is celebrated on Valentine's Day and throughout
February in school districts across the country.


The program raises awareness and appreciation
for the hundreds of thousands of school bus
drivers who safely transport school children to
and from school each day.
The federal government already recognizes
school bus transportation as the safest way
for children to get to and from school. This is
attributed to the dedicated men and women who
are committed to ensuring the safety of every
child on their bus. We honor their commitment
this month and look forward to celebrating at
schools across our community.
I encourage parents and teachers in Levy
County to take a minute this month and thank
your child's bus driver. For more information,
please visit www.lovethebus.com for ideas on
how to make a special Valentine for your child's
bus driver.

the town limits development in wetlands to

The town has also enacted by ordinance
comprehensive plan provisions that welcome
responsible development, recognizing, for
example, that only 70 users of a water system

rates in the state cannot afford to indefinitely
maintain the water system without growth that
shares the financial burden.

by pumping government money
directly into job creation. The current
stimulus bill is a joke compared to
what FDR did. The money from
FDR's legislation was used to pay
workers. The workers built public
buildings, roads, bridges and other
structures. It was a different day,
a different era. But it was honest
legislation. It wasn't anything like
the current stimulus b.ill. Obviously
the idea of the federal government
pumping money into the economy
to create jobs is nothing new. But
the intent of the legislation should
be to create jobs, not to promote the
agenda of the president or individual
members of Congress.
I if were a Republican member
of Congress I would be celebrating
the passage of the stimulus bill
(assuming it passes this week).
It should pave the way for a
Republican resurgence. When
congressional elections roll around
in 2010, Republicans can beat the
Democrats over the head with this
dishonest legislation. Republicans
can retake control of Congress. The
same could be true of the presidential
race in 2112. Obama could be a one
term president.
The stimulus plan needed to be a
jobs creation plan. It was anything
but that.

What Congress decided to cut


The list of projects partially cut, or
entirely cut from the economic stimulus
plan are listed below. I think common
sense would make you wonder how some
of these projects could have stimulated
the economy, or was it just pork added for
certain Congressional districts? When you
start tossing around that kind of money in
Washington, often there's waste. Some of
these projects are worthy of funding, but
they don't belong in an economic stimulus
package. Period. Terry Witt
Partially cut:
$3.5 billion for energy-efficient federal
buildings (originally $7 billion)
$75 million for Smithsonian Institution
(original bill $150 million)
$200 million for Environmental
Protection Agency Superfund (original bill
$800 million)
$100 million for National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (original bill
$427 million)
$100 million for law enforcement
wireless (original bill $600 million)
$300 million for federal fleet of hybrid
vehicles (original bill $600 million)
$100 million for FBI construction
(original bill $400 million)
Fully Eliminated:
$55 million for historic preservation
$122 million for Coast Guard polar
icebreaker/cutters
$100 million for Farm Service Agency
modernization
$50 million for Cooperative State
Research, Education and Extension Service

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland farmer Ron St. John calls it a
politically correct dairy.
The Southpoint grazing dairy he
recently opened doesn't produce odors for
neighbors to complain about.
It's a new type of dairy, and appears to
be a more popular one.
Driving along County Road 347 west
of Chiefland, Southpoint grazing dairy can
barely be seen through the window of a
vehicle. If it wasn't for a dirt road that cuts
through a maze of grassy fields, the dairy
might be invisible. There aren't many
buildings.
What's more, the smell of a large dairy
is all but absent. At the milking center,
which is more than a quarter of a mile off
the road, the smell of cattle grains and cow
manure is noticeable, but the odor is mild
and confined to that location.
"I'd like to think there's no smell here,"
said Manager Pete Hetherington, a native
of Australia. He designed the farm and
operates it for St. John..
Southpoint has been in operation for
six weeks. There have been no complaits
from the public to this point.,
The green fields surrounding the
milking center make up about 99 percent
of the dairy. The 600 milking cows and
200 mothers-in-waiting graze in the fields
most of the time. A pivot irrigation system
keeps the fields watered and growing.
The waste left in the fields by the cows is
disposed of by nature. The nutrients are
recycled naturally and become fertilizer
for the grass.
Grazing dairies operate much
differently than confinement dairies.
The big confinement dairies house milk
cows in barns and feed them in the
barns. The animal waste is recovered and
sprayed through pivot irrigation systems
onto fields. The sprayed manure has a
noticeable smell. Alliance Dairy north
of Chiefland, also owned by St. John, is
a confinement dairy. He said neither the
grazing nor confinement dairy pollutes.
At Southpoint, the cows receive most
of their food and nutrients from the grass
they eat. They must forage for their food
in the fields. Come milking time, they
walk at a leisurely pace to the milking
center to munch on grain. When the cows
are released to go back outside, they are .
rotated to a field of fresh grass until their
next milking. Hetherington keeps track of
his rotation on a computer.
Hetherington uses a device known as a
rising plate meter to calculate the amount
of grass in a field. The device pushes
down on a small section of grass and
calculates the pounds per acre in the field
surrounding it. The height and thickness of
the grass tell are the factors it measures.
The big tractors and big barns and
activity found on a confinement dairy
aren't part of Southpoint dairy.
"This dairy is pretty sleepy," St: John
said.
Hetherington believes he can operate
the dairy with five full-time employees
and himself. The dairy is producing 50,000
pounds of milk every other day. When
warmer weather arrives and the grass
grows better, Hetherington anticipates
producing 50,000 pounds of milk daily.
The only manure sprayed on the farm is
captured in the milking center and mixed
with water. It is sprayed while fresh on
an 87-acre field set aside for that purpose.
The slurry or water and fresh manure has a
benign odor, with a slight tinge of chlorine
mixed in. The chlorine is used to disinfect
the pipes.


Pete Hetherington uses a rising plate
meter to measure the height and
density of grass in a pasture. The
device measures pounds of grass per
acre.


Heifer calves munch on grain in the
milking area of the barn, the only
building needed for a grazing dairy.
St. John has received a state industrial
waste disposal permit for the 'dairy. The
permit allows him to dump no more
waste on the land than the plants can
absorb through their root system. He has
monitoring wells in the property to keep
track of aquifer water quality.
But he said the grazing dairy is so
efficient at absorbing nutrients from cow.
waste that he actually has to spray nitrogen
on, his fields to fertilize the grass.
St. John and Hetherington said grass-
fed cows produce milk lower in fat but
higher in Conjugated Linoleic Acid
(CLA), which is believed to have anti-
carcinogenic, anti-diabetic, and anti-
obesity properties.
"This is not organic. It's better than
organic," St. John said.
Grazing dairies are nothing new. St.
John grew up on one in New York. The
dairies in old Florida were grazing dairies.
Hetherington said 50 years ago the United
States was the site of most grazing dairies.
St. John believes the dairy industry
outsmarted itself when it moved away
from grazing.
Southpoint dairy hasn't produced
as much grass as Hetherington and St.
John would like this winter due to the
exceptionally cold weather. Most of the
fields are planted in rye grass. The cold
and frost doesn't kill the rye grass, but it
can stunt its growth for a few days. But the
growth has been good enough to sustain
the herd of cows.
St. John is sold on grazing dairies. He
said the cost of setting up a grazing dairy
is 20 percent less than a confinement
dairy. There are fewer buildings and less
upkeep, and the neighbors are happier.
Grazing dairies are what he plans to open
in the future.
"You could permit another confinement
dairy like Alliance, but the public
perception is different," he said.

PROGRESS ENERGY LEVY NUCLEAR PLANT IN LEVY COUNTY AND
ASSOCIATED FACILITIES IN LEVY, CITRUS, MARION, SUMTER, LAKE,
HERNANDO, PINELLAS, HILLSBOROUGH AND POLK COUNTIES

1. This notice supersedes a similar notice previously published in this newspaper, a copy of which is available at
dep.state.fl.us/siting/highlights/applications.htm. This notice is in lieu of other notices, including those relating to variances,
changes in zoning ordinances and local governments' plans, or any other non-federal government license or permit.
2. Progress Energy Florida (PEF) filed application number PA08-51 for certification to authorize construction and operation
of a 2,200-megawatt (MW) (nominal) nuclear electrical generating facility and associated electrical transmission lines and
substations, access roads, and water pipelines with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) on June 2,
2098. The Project is known as the Levy Nuclear Project (Project). PEF is seeking certification of the entire Project under the
Florida Electrical Power Plant Siting Act (PPSA or Act), Chapter 403, Part II, Florida Statutes (F.S.). The case is now pending
before the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), Case No. 08-002727-EPP, prior to final action by the Florida
Governor and Cabinet, pursuant to the PPSA.
3. The Project's two electrical generating units and related facilities will be located in Levy County, Florida. The Levy project
power plant is comprised of approximately 3,105 acres and has not been previously certified for power generation. The Levy
project site is located about 7 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico and 8 miles north of the company's Crystal River Energy
Complex in Citrus County.
4. The Levy Nuclear Project application also seeks certification to approve the location of corridors for the construction,
operation and maintenance of the following transmission lines:
(a) Levy North Line: a 69-kilovolt (kV) transmission line at the Levy Nuclear Plant site, approximately 375 feet in
length;
(b) Levy South Line: a 69-kV transmission line at the Levy Nuclear Plant site, approximately 4.5 miles in length;
(c) Citrus 1 & 2 Lines: two 500-kV transmission lines from the Levy Nuclear Plant site to the Citrus substation,
approximately 7 miles in length;
(d) Sumter Line: a 500-kV transmission line from the Levy Nuclear Plant site to the Central Florida South Substation,
approximately 59 miles in length;
(e) Crystal River Line: a 500-kV transmission line from the Levy Nuclear Plant site to the Crystal River Energy Complex
switchyard, approximately 14 miles in length;
(f) Crystal River East 1 & 2 Lines: two 230-kV transmission lines from the Citrus Substation to the Crystal River East
Substation, approximately 2.7 miles in length;
(g) Brookridge Line: a 230-kV transmission line from the Crystal River Energy Complex switchyard to Brookridge West
Substation, approximately 3 miles in length;
(h) Brooksville West Line: a 230-kV transmission line from the Brookridge Substation to the Brooksville West Substation,
approximately 3 miles in length; and
(i) PHP Line: a 230-kV transmission line from Polk to Hillsborough to Pinellas counties, approximately 50 miles in length,
also known as the Kathleen Line.
5. Pursuant to Section 403.508, F.S., the certification hearing on this application is scheduled to be heard by the DOAH
beginning at 9 a.m. on February 23, 2009, or as soon thereafter as can be heard, through March 13, 2009, as listed below.

S---NOTICtG OF ULE,.
DEVELOPMENT
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District, Chapter 40D-
2, Florida Administrative Code.
Summary of Proposed Rules
The District proposes to make
further refinements in the defini-
tions of General and Small Gen-
eral Water Use Permits (WUPs).
set forth in Rule 40D-2.041,
F.A.C., which was. recently
amended. General WUPs are
issued for combined annual av-
erage daily water demands of
less than 500,000 gallons per
day (gpd) but greater than or
equal to 100,000 gpd. Recent
amendments elevated certain
water demands of less than
100,000 gpd formerly catego-
rized as Small General WUPs
to the General WUP category,
which amendments included
defining all permits with surface
water withdrawals less than
100,000 gpd as a General WUP.
The proposed amendments will
clarify that for permits authoriz-
ing surface water withdrawals,
only those for which the primary
source is a surface water and the
combined annual average daily
water demand is at least 50,000
gpd will be categorized as Gen-
eral Permits. The General WUP
category is also amended to in-
clude permits with annual aver-
age water demands of less than
100,000 gpd when the maxi-
mum daily withdrawal quantity
equals or exceeds 3,000,000
gpd for crop protection or other
use unless at least one permit-
ted withdrawal facility is located
within the Dover-Plant City area
of Hillsborough County. In that
specific area, WUPs authoriz-
ing less than 100,000 gpd will
be elevated to the General WUP
category if the maximum daily
withdrawal quantity for crop pro-
tection or other use equals or ex-
ceeds 1,000,000 gpd. This is to
due to the concentration of agri-
cultural water use in that specific
area, primarily for strawberries,
which require significant crop
protection withdrawals during
the winter growing season. The
effect of these amendments is
to limit the Small General WUP

Need help with that Valentines' gift? We are here to help


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Feb. 14 rolls around every year right about
the time when we're all recovering from our
excessive Christmas spending. The gift ideas
are few and far between, and so, in a last-
minute effort to avoid the silent treatment that
would result from not purchasing a gift at all,
you stop in to Wal-Mart after work and pick
up a box of chocolate, some flowers if they're
not sold out by then, and a card.
Then you hurry home, get dressed in
something nice, and you and your honey go
out for a nice meal.
Sounds romantic, right? Sure, chocolate
and a dozen roses are big sellers at Valentine's
Day every year, but for those who are skeptics
of the whole commercialism of Valentine's
Day or you just want to show your loved one
how much you care by giving him/her a really
unique gift this year, look no further.
V Levy County, with the close proximity
of the gulf, the river and numerous beautiful
springs, enjoys the familiarity with an animal
that most in the country may never lay eyes
on. The manatees, seeking a warm refuge
in the constant 72-degree waters, have been
frequenting the local springs during the cold
this winter.
If your loved one is a lover of animals,
consider adopting one in his or her name this
Valentine's Day. The manatee, a long-time
resident of the endangered species list, is
just such an animal that could benefit from a
thoughtful gesture.
"Adopting a manatee is a sweet alternative
from the heart instead of the usual chocolates
and flowers," said Janice Nearing, Director of
Public Relations for Save the Manatee Club.
For a tax-deductible $25, your adoption
will include a color photo of your Florida
manatee, an adoption certificate, the manatee's
biography, a membership handbook, a
subscription to the club's newsletter, the bi-
monthly e-newsletter, and a personalized
Valentine's Day manatee card.
An extra $10 will also buy you a plush
manatee to give to your Valentine.
"It shows you care about the person and
the world around you," Nearing said.

Club. Patrick M. Rose
Y If you'd rather enjoy nature and animals
first-hand for just an afternoon, consider the
serenity and adventure of a kayak or canoe trip
around the Cedar Keys or down the river.
Sherry Liebert, who owns Kayak Cedar
Keys with her husband, Tom, said renting a
tandem, or two-person kayak, and packing
a picnic lunch is a great way to reconnect
in today's busy world and re-establish the
teamwork that is so important in maintaining
a relationship.
Liebert said this is the perfect time of
year to see dolphins, migratory birds like the
white pelican, and the pair of eagles currently
nesting on Atsena Otie Island.
They'll provide a map and the equipment,
and you're free to explore the many remote
islands on your own.
To make the trip romantic, Liebert suggests
packing a picnic of cheese, crackers and a
small bottle of wine to share.
If you're unsure ofyour kayaking/canoeing
abilities, Kayak Cedar Keys offers Wilderness
Tours with a guided service for a fee.
"It's a real nice, quiet, relaxing way to
spend an afternoon," Liebert said.
V Let's face it, guys. Most of you would
rather walk barefooted across a heap of rusty
nails than learn how to dance. But in your


lady's eyes, there's not much that is more
romantic than being held close and led, with
sweeping steps and elaborate turns, in a tango
or waltz.
So if you want to be a hero in her eyes and
the envy of women everywhere, sign up for
couples dancing lessons.
Debbie Dean, co-owner ofD & D Studios
in Chiefland, said dancing is good for the
mind, body and soul.
Although D & D Studios does not offer
couples dancing lessons, there are plenty of
places in Gainesville that do. A quick search
online will pull up plenty of options from
weekly classes to one-time classes.


Learning to dance with your partner helps
establish a better connection, Dean said.
"You're touching each other, you're im
unison. It's just very romantic," she said.
I This next idea may seem like a no-
brainer, but sometimes it's easy to forget that
the simplest gifts are also sometimes the most
meaningful.
Instead of going to a packed restaurant
Saturday night, treat your loved one to his or
her favorite home-cooked meal. Better yet, get
in the kitchen and prepare it together. Working
side-by-side will make it taste better.
And instead of buying that bouquet of
flowers that not only costs an arm and a leg
but will also die in a couple days, consider
buying a live rose bush or tulips.
With the spring approaching, stores
everywhere are gearing up. Dollar General
recently sold rose starters for $4 each. I
bought several each for my sister, sister-in-
law, mother and self to the delight of all.
With the appropriate care, a live plant will
provide flowers and the memory of your gift
for years to come, and for usually less money
than would've been spent on a bouquet.
Valentine's Day may be just another
opportunity for the card and candy industry.
to squeeze some extra cash out of us, but it's
important for our loved ones to know we care
about them. What better way to show our
feelings?
And if you're single this year, don't fret:
My sister has been my Valentine for years, no
matter my relationship status. For that reason,
she gets a gift every year. Thank goodness
she's a lover of animals, nature and dancing.

Chiefland beats Dixie in OT


Chiefland's Cantrell Richardso4 drives around Dixie County's Tevin
Henderson.


By Ryan Butler
Correspondent

Few things can cause a grown man to jump
around on a basketball court with several dozen
high school students. Fewer things are as exciting
as what caused the spontaneous celebration at
Chiefland High School Tuesday night.After an
amazing fourth quarter comeback, the Chiefland
boys basketball tied Dixie County when the game
appeared all but over. They then carried the
momentum from the fourth into a thrilling 67-65
overtime win in the first round of the district 3A-
5 tournament. Fans and coaches alike ran onto
the court to celebrate the hard-earned win shortly
after the final buzzer.
Down 57-50 with a little over a minute to play,
the Indians made a dramatic 7-0 run culminating
in senior Tommy Sheffield's jump shot with five
seconds left to tie the game. The Indians carried
the momentum into overtime where they went up
by as many as five before holding on for the two
point victory.
"It was a tough, quality win," said head coach
Mark Lundy. "I was happy with the balance. I


was very happy with the selflessness."
Offensively, the team was balanced by four
different players scoring in double figures.
Sophomore Eugene Carter led the team with 20
points, 17 in the second half and overtime.
The hustle and ball distribution throughout the
long game showed the selflessness.
However, the win could have been significantly
less dramatic had the Indians been able to shoot
better from the free throw line. CHS missed 23
times from the charity stripe.
"It all boils down to missed free throws. That's
pivotal for us," said Lundy.
Regardless, Chiefland showed it could battle
through adversity in a variety of ways, including
losing senior Cantrell Richardson to foul
accumulation. Chiefland had taken some control
of the back-and-forth game in the third quarter,
going up 50-46 with a little over three minutes
to play in the period. But Richardson's fifth foul
slowed the momentum, and the Bears went on an
11-0 run that lasted until the final minute of the
fourth, and Chiefland's last-minute heroics.
"I told them to play through adversity," said
Lundy. "You have to trust people."


Williston beats Newberry, but falls to PK Yonge


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


The Williston Lady Red Devils crushed
Newberry 54-41 in the opening round of
the district playoffs Friday in Chiefland,
but were beaten 58-23 by P.K. Yonge in the
championship game the following night.
"We just got outplayed. We kind of ran
out of gas," said Coach Jason Odom after
the .championship game. "We had trouble
against the press. We need to go back to the
drawing board."
Williston will get one more chance to
advance in the playoffs in a game Thursday,
but even if they win the Lady Red Devils
would face P.K. Yonge in the game that
followed, according to Odom.
The Red Devils led for the entire game
against Newberry, at one point leading by
20. But the Lady Panthers became more
aggressive at both ends of the court in the
third period and closed the tap 43-24 at one
point.
Odom called a timeout and talked to his
team about their poor performance in the
third period. The Lady Devils went back
out and put a stop to the Panther comeback;
holding on for a 13 point win.
The following night, P.K. Yonge, with
a perfect 23-0 record, walked on to the
court with more than twice as many players
as Williston. The Blue Wave team was
taller and quicker on the court. The team
substituted freely. Williston's starting five
played most of the game without rest.
The Lady Devils never stopped hustling
or battling for the ball on both ends of the
court, but the Lady Blue Wave half court
press was extremely effective. In the third
period the Blue Wave trapped the ball.
Williston had trouble moving the ball past


half court. The Blue Wave repeatedly stole
the ball for scores.
The game got physical at times. The
Lady Blue Wave players drew two technical
fouls. The game was more like tackle
basketball in the waning minutes.
Midway through the third period, with
the Lady Blue Wave's leading by more
than 35 points, the Mercy Rule took effect.
Game officials ran the clock continuously,
even during foul shooting and out of bounds
plays. The Mercy Rule shortened a rough
game.
The Lady Devils won district runnerup
status for the second consecutive year and
left the tournament with a 14-9 record. The
Lady Blue Waves finished the tournament
unblemished with a 24-0 record.
"They are a great team. It wasn't just us
throwing the ball out of bounds," Odom
said. "They are a championship team."
P.K. Yonge is associated with the
University of Florida as a laboratory
school. Young athletes flock to the school's
basketball program,. which has a long
history of success.
The Blue Wave defeated the Fort White
Indians 71-50 in the opening round of the
tournament. It was just a warm up game for
the Blue Wave. Scoring by periods for the
Blue Wave 24-17-19-11; for Fort White
4-10-17-19.

It was a big couple of days at Williston High School last week. On Wednesday,

State University in Atlanta. Travis is surrounded by family members as he
signs the contract. On Thursday, Red Devil baseball player Brandon Scott
signed on with St. Johns River Community College. Brandon is flanked by

Chiefland working to resolve issues with youth soccer field


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Officials of the Chiefland Area Athletic Association
learned Monday they don't have much control over a youth
soccer field they spent thousands of dollars improving.
The CAAA invested $7,500 in an irrigation system and
grassing for the youth soccer field at city-owned Charles
Strickland Park, but league officials said the field is being
torn up by two semi-professional football teams that use it
for practices and games.
CAAA officials said the teams use profanity. They have
received reports that alcohol is being consumed and they
said parents have removed their children from the park
because of the profanity.
One part of the field has become a muddy mess from
excessive use. Morgan said he has received an estimate of
$7,500 to repair the field.
"I've seen the field. It looks like a hog wallow," said Billy
Hinote.
The city has been told it can't bar the teams from using the
field. Strickland Park was developed with Florida Recreation
and Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grants.
The grants are administered by the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation. The agency requires the fields
to be open to the public. The semi-pro teams are considered
part of the public.
City officials have invited the CAAA and representatives
of both teams to a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at 'City Hall
to try to work out better arrangements for use of the fields.
No representatives of the semi-pro teams were at Monday's


commission meeting.
The Gulf Coast
ThPanthers are from
Chiefland and the
Levy County Raiders
are from Williston.
The Panthers use the
field for practices and
games.
The city is
also working on
an ordinance that
provides more specific
rules governing what is
allowed or not allowed
in city recreation
parks, including
Strickland. Once the
ordinance is in place,
signs will be erected
posting the rules. The
The field serves as home to ordinance issexpected
the Chiefland Area Athletic to address issues the
Association's soccer program city faces but the ordinclanced
during late summer and early will apply to all city
fall months. will apply to all city
recreation facilities.
NeitherthePanthers
nor the Raiders asked for permission to use the fields.
Neither team is paying for use of the lights or contributing to


the maintenance of the field. The teams have been charging
admission to games, but Laurie Copeland, financial projects
coordinator for the city, said FRDAP forbids the charge of
admission at public events.
The issue came to a head recently when Julee J. Brideson
of the Gilchrist County administrator's office sent a Feb. 2
e-mail to DEP complaining that a semi-pro football team
had showed up for practice in Strickland Park and found a
lock on the field lights. According to her e-mail, the city had
given Steve Gardner of the Youth Soccer League permission
to lock the field lights box until the team had city commission
approval to use them.
The e-mail went on to say that Lee Bell of the Gulf Coast
Panthers approached the city commission on Jan. 26 to find
out what he needed to do to use the fields. The e-mail said
Bell left the meeting believing he had received permission
to use the field and lights. But when Lee went to City Hall
to get a key he was told by City Manager Grady Hartzog
there was a problem and he could have to go back to the City
Commission before it could be resolved.
The e-mail resulted in a call to the city from FRDAP
officials,
Copeland said FRDAP officials told her if the issues with
the football teams were not resolved it could compromise
future FRDAP grants and might jeopardize existing and
past FRDAP grants given to the city for outdoor recreation
projects.
The city is currently administering two FRDAP projects,
a skateboard park at Delma Locke Community Center and a
basketball court at Strickland Park.


Williston, from Page 12B


giving the Red Devils experience at a number
of keypositions around the diamond.
"I think we are a veteran baseball team,"
Smith said. "We return six full-time starters
and four others who started more than seven
games last year. We have eight seniors and'
they are providing very good leadership for
us."
Williston will enjoy depth at just about
every position, particularly on the mound,
where no fewer than eight different pitchers
could see action, Smith said. Pitching and
defense will be the key for Williston in 2009,
he added.
"Pitching and defense are the keys to
getting further than we got last year," he said.
"We feel like we have about eight quality
arms that will give us.a chance to win every
time we go out.
"But I think to get past where we went
last year and that is our goal, to get back to
the same spot and then finish the job we
need consistency on defense. That was kind
of our Achilles heel toward the end last year.
We were not playing real good defense. We
were giving.teams extra outs, and that is just
not good baseball. We want to throw strikes
and play defense. We have to get better at
that, and we have seen improvements this
preseason."
Anchoring the defense will be team
captain Chris Morrow, who returns for
his third year behind the plate for the Red
Devils. Smith said that Morrow, an all-
state selection from a year ago, is a great


defensive catcher who swings the bat well.
But his biggest contribution, the coach said,
is providing leadership.
"He is the guy who makes us go," Smith
said. "He makes sure we are where we are
supposed to be. He is a very vocal leader
who leads by example." Smith said Morrow
will likely bat cleanup for the'Red Devils in
2009.
Also back for another year is first baseman
Charlie Hilton, who will also see time on the
mound this year, Smith said. William Kalena
Jr. will also play first base and pitch, giving
Williston left-handed options.
"They are both lefties and will both pitch
for us and do a good job," the coach said.
"We did not have a healthy left-hander in the
rotation last year and now we have three
lefthanders. And we are pretty pleased with
that."
Senior Tyrie Boyer is back'for his fourth
year as a starter at second base. Boyer led
the team in on-base percentage a year ago,
and gives the Red Devils solid defensive
play, Smith said.
Boyer and shortstop Damon Ming, also a
senior, have more than 60 games together in
the middleof the infield, Smith said.
"Damon and Tyrie both were very
consistent last year and that is what I asked
them to do at the beginning of the year,"
Smith said. "They provide us a great deal of
leadership and experience."
Smith said Ming will also pitch at various
times during the season.


Junior Lawrence Jones will play third
base, possibly sharing time with senior Cody
McCloud. Smith said Jones has enjoyed a
solid offseason, and appears ready for more
responsibility in the new year.
"He is really having a great preseason,"
Smith said. "He is swinging the bat real well
and seems to be giving us real consistent
play defensively."
Five different players will see time in the
outfield, beginning with senior centerfielder
Brandon Scott, who signed a scholarship,
Feb. 5 to play baseball at St. Johns River
College in Palatka.
"He was really a pleasant surprise last
year," Smith said of Scott. "He hit three
home runs and hit over 400 in the nine hole
spot. He will not get the pitches he got last
year, so he will have to work a lot harder.
He gives us a lot of athleticism out in the
outfield and on the bases and that is a big
asset for us. He is a real hard worker."
Senior transfer Derrick Milam, formerly
of Dunnellon, brings plenty of athleticism
to the Red Devils, Smith said.
"He will probably bat leadoff for us,"
Smith said. "He is a real big asset, and it is
a big boost to us to pick him up."
Smith said both Scott and Milam will.
likely see time on the mound, and 'also
* bring plenty of speed to the lineup.
"I think we have a little more team speed
than we did last year," he said. "Last year
we stole 38 bases for the season as a team.
That is the lowest in my coaching career.


We just did not have overall team speed.
This year we have speed at the top of the
lineup and throughout, which is going to
help us."
Former infielder Caleb Maderas will also
see time in left field, Smith said.
Darren Sullivan played a number of
games in right field a year ago and played
well, Smith said. Sullivan will share time
with freshman Max White, a youngster who
has enjoyed a solid preseason, Smith said.'
"Those two kids will battle it out and
share right field."
Smith said the key difference between
the '08 and '09 teams is pitching depth.
"If you ask me, that is the difference,"
he said. "We have more quality depth at
pitching. It is nice to have."
In order to bring it all together, Smith said,
the players will have to buy into the team
concept. Fortunately, he said, that appears to
be happening.
"I think the intangibles are the key to
what we do," he said. "Everybody is buying
into team first and leaving the egos outside
the fence. The work habits and commitment
have been very good in the preseason. They
are very coachable."
The district playoffs will be in Williston
this year, where the Red Devils enjoy a 38-
game home district winning streak. That,
along with the senior-laden team gives Smith
a reason to be optimistic in 2009.
; "We feel like everything is lined up," he
said. "And we are ready to finish the job."


Chiefland, from Page 12B


will anchor a speedy and gifted outfield. Jeremy Hayes,
a part-time starter on the mound a year ago, will return
to pitch and play centerfield. And designated hitter Dane
Cothron settles into a steady job in right field.
The Indians also welcome Bo Beauchamp up from the
junior varsity to play first base, and a pair of youngsters
- Jacob Reidy and Parrish Parnell to take over for injured
Brent Slaughter at third base.
It was supposed to be Slaughter's second year on the
varsity, but the talented sophomore suffered a severe knee
injury Oct. 10 in a football game against Newberry. Losing
Slaughter, who led the team in every offensive category
except batting average a year ago, is tough, Parnell said.
"He is one of those guys who makes every one around
him better," Parnell said. "He was not only going to play
third base, but he was also going to be in the starting
pitching rotation."
Still, the Indians look to be fairly deep on the mound,
with Hayes, Wasson, Reidy and shortstop Adam Burton
- among others set to throw pitches in 2009;
Burton will team with senior second baseman Josh
Wasson to form a new middle-infield combination, a


problem Parnell has not had in recent seasons.
"We have been real fortunate the last few years to keep
our middle infield intact," he said. "This year we are going to
have to switch from game to game in the middle, depending
on who is pitching, and hopefully we can maintain some
consistency there, even with that going on."
Reidy will see time at first base when Beauchamp is
on the mound, and Josh Wasson will move to short when
Burton pitches. When that happens, Parrish Parnell will
'likely move to second.
Offensively, Cothron returns to bat' leadoff once again,
and Clinton Wasson brings back a key,bat one that hit
over .400 a year ago. Perkins adds a long ball threat. After
that, it will be a matter of time waiting until the youngsters
get that much-needed experience.
Among those are Johnny Williams and Marquise Green,
both left fielders. Both, and many others, Parnell said, will
need to step up.
"We have a lot of new guys, and we have a lot of
potential," he said. "We just need the experience."

MOVIE CHOICES FOR KIDS


CORALINE
(Running time: 100 minutes)
Rated PG
Animated with the voice of: Dakota Fanning, Teri
Hatcher

What fabulous imaginative animation in this dark story
taken from the book of the same name, published in 2006.
Coraline lives in a huge old Victorian house with parents
who are totally preoccupied with their work. Also living in
this giant house are two ladies who used to be performers
and a wacky circus man who is training mice.
Bored on a rainy day, Coraline is reduced to counting
windows and doors in this creepy house when she comes
upon a small door that leads to another universe. In this
universe are Coraline's "other" mother and "other" father.
Everything she hates at home is perfect here: a beautiful,
colorful room, delicious meals and parents who are
available for her every whim. She is taken in by all this.
But, these people are evil and want to sew buttons in
place of her eyes and keep her in this universe forever. At
this point the quirky movie gets dark. The "other" mother
becomes a scary, witchy character with grasping hands that
look like huge needles. Coraline is intrepid and faces the


Springhouse Quilters will be celebrating their
seventeenth year this month. Springhouse Quilters was
formed in February 1992 by a very small group of ladies
who started meeting at the Lodge (Springhouse) Building
at Otter Springs. The membership has grown from
approximately 4-10 members into a membership of over
100 members. These are ladies who are dedicated to
quilting and in continuing to teach quilting to others.
Each year, as new members, join, they are offered
the opportunity as a benefit of being a Springhouse
member, to attend 8-10 beginning quilting classes. This
year, there are approximately 12. new members who are
attending beginning quilting classes. The membership of
Springhouse encourages the membership to share their
knowledge and teach others to preserve the art of quilting.
Many quilts made over the years have been made out of
necessity for warmth. Today, although warmth is still a
must, the form of quilting has evolved into an art form and
many quilts are made and preserved as a piece of art.
Springhouse has two groups of members: a day group
and a night group. The day group meets on the second
Tuesday each month to take care of the business that must


witch and the frightening other world. She beats the witch
at a game and frees herself and children previously trapped
there.
While I liked the message about appreciating the
harried parents you have, I do think Coraline is too scary
for sensitive children. The book is for readers 9-12 years
old and I would say the same for the movie. Please do
see it with your child as it is inventive, funny and most
entertaining.

HE'S.JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU
(Running time: 129 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck, Jennifer
Connelly, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson,
Ginnifer Goodwin, Justin Long, Bradley Cooper, Kevin
Connolly

Taken from a 2005 best-selling book, the movie He's
Just Not That Into You is a funny, insightful commentary
on men, woman and being single today. The movie covers
a group people who are all acquainted. While they are all
in different places in their love lives, they connect.
Beth (Anniston) has been living with Neil (Affleck)


be attended to. On the fourth Tuesday each month the day
members are offered a workshop to learn new quilting
techniques or patterns.
The night group meets each Tuesday night and they too
have a class of beginners and take care of business and
have interesting workshops throughout each month.
Springhouse Quilters have used several other locations
over the years for their meetings from Fanning Springs
City Hall, Woodman of the World, Don Martin Insurance,
Shrine Club, Donnie Precinct Building and finally located
permanently to their present home west of Trenton. The
property where their house is located was donated to
Springhouse by Luther and Juanita White of Chiefland.
The mobile home on the property was donated by Fanning
Springs City Commission. Members of Springhouse
along with their family members moved and renovated the
mobile home into its current condition.

for seven years without marriage. Janine (Connelly) and
Ben (Cooper) are happily married...or are they? Anna
.(Johansson), Gigi (Goodwin) and Mary (Barrymore) are
single and looking for the right guy. Alex (Long) and Conor
(Connolly) are single and distant from women or looking
to forge a relationship with a beautiful woman.
The movie easily weaves back and forth among the
stories of the ensemble cast. I feel like I'm peeking through
a window into the 30-something scene in Baltimore. What
I liked most about He's Just Not That Into You was the way
it exposed how women make excuses for a man who is
clearly not interested rather than accept the fact that he is
not interested. I laughed not only at the women on screen,
but also at myself during that time when I stayed home
waiting for a phone call that never came.
There is some bad language, no violence. There are
but several very sexual scenes, including two of adultery.
There is no nudity. While the movie makes good points
that should be instructive for young women about reading
men, it is probably too mature for most girls under 15.

syndicated column by movie guru Jean Joachim, is

log Cabdin Qlsdters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Feb. 5, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum, In spite of it being cold, we had a
great day. The No-Name Quilt was taken out of the frame
and Goldie will hem it at home. A beautiful Fence quilt
done in colors of green was started and it was pieced by
Shirley Murphy from Tennessee.
We have had more fabric come in and we need to get rid
of it so we can make room for more. A lot of it is double-
knit that could be used for lap robes.
Donna Saywell and Caroline Craig from Williston
are doing so well on their quilts that they are quilting on
hoops. Donna has never quilted but she is really doing a
great job.
We are all ready to go to the fair next Tuesday. It will be
a fun day; the bus is full and we hope to see some ribbons
on the quilts and crafts we took down in January.
Lunch was again so great: bean soup, sweet potatoes,
cheese and macaroni, potato patties, peas, chicken and rice,
chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, pea salad, Jello
salad, lots of cakes and cookies.

LAYING A FOUNDATION FOR

GENERATIONS TO COME


I was buckling my 6-year-old's seat belt last Sunday
morning when I noticed a far-off look in his eyes.
"What you thinking, Josh?" I inquired.
"Thinking about playing," he stated
simply. Then nodding, as if considering
it further he added, "I'm like the KING "
of playing."
I'll 'give it to him. The boy does have
one of the most active imaginations
I've ever seen. You toss him an old gum
wrapper and 30 seconds later he's slaying
a dragon with it -and not without a full
array of accompanying sound effects.
He'll take one of my old Matchbox cars
and entertain himself for hours. I don't ,
know where he gets it.
I ventured another question on the


drive to church.
"So why you been getting up so early to
go with Daddy?" (I usually get there two


and after everything was set up, he hit me up about the
snack machine. I extolled him briefly about the virtues of
capitalism and flipped him a dollar for his hard work. He
came back with a bag of Funyuns.
Soon the crowd rolled in (literally).
Joshua grabbed a table up front and
whipped out a candy bar of mysterious
origins. There was no time to ask, so
I just shook my head and began the
.show.
Somewhere along the set I lost
Track of him. It wasn't until we eased
into a soothing worship song from

form of a terribly off-key clanging
from across the hall. Somebody was

with Guy Shefbiel


hours early for Praise Team practice.)
"I like a little peace and quiet," he quipped, "Momma
and Sissy are tooooo loud." That didn't require further
explanation, so we both nodded and rode on.
Once at the church we each settled in to our routines;
him playing with cars, and me with guitars. Later when I
went to the men's room I was startled by a voice from the
stall, "Hey, Daddy."
I looked around, thinking I was hearing things. "That
you, Josh?"
"Yeah," he giggled, "I seen your big ol' feet."
After a flush he busted out of the stall stating, "You're a
Bigfoot Daddy. If you walked like Frankenstein you'd kick
yourself in the face. Hee hee hee..."
While I stood there trying to decide if that was funny
or not, he rushed out and got big laughs with the guys on
the Praise Team. What a wise guy! I don't know where he
gets it.
After church my Christian rock band SoulFood had a
date booked at the local nursing home. When Joshua heard,
he begged to go.
"Aren't you tired yet?" I implored, "You've already put
in quite a day."
He looked up at me as if I'd busted the stitches on my
; frontal lobotomy, or at least iggled m3 neck bolt loose.
He completely ignored my silly question and rushed me
with a litany of his own, concerning what bdifdi equipment
Swe'd be bringing. Not that he cared how we sounded. He
just wanted to know how much gear he'd get to tote to
prove his muscles. Show-off. I don't know where he gets
it.
Joshua ran circles around us old-timers at the load in,


banging on an old piano!
I tried to flag him down, but he
was jamming way too hard to be
distracted. Finally, I screamed in the


microphone, "Josh!"
He pounded one last note and spun around with all the
swagger of Jerry Lee Lewis hawking anew ego enhancing
drug, There was a moment of silence, followed thankfully,
by a room full of chuckles.
With the new lighter mood, three patients went on
to give their hearts to Jesus. Praise the Lord, the boy's
anointed!
SJoshua sauntered back to his seat where he opened three
packages of peanut butter crackers. I watched disgustedly
as he maneuvered them around the dirty table like checker
pieces until I couldn't help myself.
"Josh!" I lamented, "Where'd you get those?"'
He parted his lips to smile and spewed out enough
crumbs to choke a stump grinder. Again chuckles filled
the room. One lady waved me off, "Honey, you leave that
boy with us. We're taking good care of him."
After the service Joshua tagged along while I shook
hands and prayed for folks. What a delight it was to
watch him hit his knees and bow reverently beside those
wheelchairs; a humbling moment that really puts a dad's
heart in his throat. Joshua's so sweet. I don't know where
he...oh, yeah, I do. He gets that from his momma.
But anyway Overall it was just another typical
Sunday with my boy. He and his sister have a unique way
of helping me keep life in perspective.Treckon there's no
task I've been asked to do that could rival the responsibility
I have to raise them both to know and follow the Lord,.
Abraham was chosen to be the father of our faith because
of that. God said, For I know him, that he will command
his children and his household after him, and they shall


&J~4ot /oc eti, hot pantb kot YVatentineJ


Hot pockets. That's the name of a pizza/burrito type
product that you just toss in the nuker and voila! The perfect
snack food, not to be confused with a fashion trend during
my high school days known as hot pants, tight fitting shorts
with matching shirts that would put even Daisy Duke to
shame. I confess I succumbed to peer pressure and wore
them, although with my bird legs and way less-than-perfect
figure, I have no idea what came over me. Beauty is in the
eyes of the stupid teenager, I guess.
But many years later, the combination of no pockets'and
somewhat hot pants played a key role in what was one of
the funniest incidents in our youngest daughter's preschool
career. She was 4 at the time and happy as could be in
the church preschool she attended until noon every day.
She adored her teacher, Miss Melanie, as did every other
student and parent in the county.
Mothers would actually camp out and spend the night
in the hallway of the church the night prior to registration,
just to ensure their child a spot on the next year's roster.
Mercifully, because we were members of that church, we
were given first dibbs on the class and never had to fight
for that treasured sleeping space right outside the church
office door. Our pastor and secretary would actually have
to step over moms and tots just to open up the next day!
Miss Melanie was worth all of it, though. Those kids
worshipped her and would tell her anything, oftentimes
supplying more information than she wanted. Such was
the case the day after Valentine's Day when she was
having everyone share a little of their family's Valentine
celebration with the class.
She met me at the door that day, absolutely about to
burst with laughter; I could just see it in her eyes. (Unlike


the time she met me at the door a few years prior, a totally
different expression in those eyes. That would be the time
our eldest daughter had told her that she, Melanie, had left
out the blood part of the story of Joseph being thrown in the
pit. So our daughter had enlightened the whole class with
the gory details of Joseph's coat of many colors changing
mainly to red, etc. Miss Melanie was not happy that day,
having purposely left out those same colorful details.)
But on this day, she was clearly amused. She pulled
me aside to tell me that after a few minutes into the class
discussion, our daughter had blurted out, "Daddy pulled
Mama's Valentine's Day present out of his pants last
night!" -
After recovering from the shock of this outrageous
statement coming from my baby's mouth, I, too, began to,
laugh and then explain what she meant.
My husband was wearing sweat pants, with no pockets,
during our Valentine's supper. At the end of the meal, he
stood up and removed a beautifully wrapped necklace box,
quite literally from the waistband of his pants, and handed
said box to me. Inside was a gorgeous gold necklace with
matching bracelet, both adorned with hearts. Our daughter
had merely told what she had seen, never dreaming that her
teacher would find it so entertaining.
Hot pockets. Hot pants. Hot Topic. Happy Valentine's
Day.

hath spoken of him. Genesis 18:19 KJV
The Devil's got nothing new in his bag of tricks, no
new-fangled fads, trends, or sins, that can hold a candle to
good ol' fashioned family values and right living. I don't
want Joshua to have to learn everything the hard way.
Hopefully, when it's his turn to be a dad, he'll have a firm
foundation of God's ways under his Franken feet, and he'll
pass it on down.

Chiefland volleyball reflects on season


Chiefland Head Coach Emily Gore pauses to speak with seniors
after the banquet.


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Chiefland Head Volleyball coach Emily Gore
battled mixed emotions at her team's annual awards
banquet Monday, saying goodbye to a handful of
senior players- while beaming about the progress of
a talented junior varsity squad and the future of the
program.
Gore, speaking to a crowd of players, parents and
program supporters inside the Chiefland High School
cafeteria, said the 2008 season was full of significant
achievements for the nearly two dozen players.
"Tonight is about recognizing these girls for their
accomplishments throughout this past season," she
said. "Both teams worked very hard throughout this
season and put a lot of hours into practices and games.
And we had so many great moments this season."
Gore singled out an Oct. 2 match against Ft.
White as one in particular. That match, a five-set
marathon won by Chiefland, was a key highlight
of the 2008 season, the coach said. Ft. White, the
second-ranked team in the district, was on the cusp
of walking away with the victory, but Chiefland
refused to lose, battling back to take the final two
games.
But there were other achievements as well. Gore
spoke highly of the conduct and tenacity of her


players.
"I appreciate their dedication and I am proud that
each player who started the season also finished it,"
she said. "I think that says a lot about the character
of the girls."
Gore spoke at length of the seniors on this year's
squad, reflecting on their individual strengths.
Senior Brittany Davis, Gore said, could easily
play any position on the court.
"She begged me all the time to let her," the coach
said. "She had a great season for us."
Several players received individual awards for
their 2008 play. Davis took the award for "most
kill shots," while Hastings claimed honors as best
defensive player. Senior Kayla Braswell was named
most improved, sophomore Charissa Morris took
the "Lady Indian" award, and freshman Taylore
Fuller claimed the "top server" award.
Each of the 12 varsity players received a plaque,
while the 10 junior varsity players received a
certificate.
Afterward, Gore said the future looks bright
for Chiefland volleyball, with many of this year's
junior varsity players moving up.
"This group is truly a lot of fun a great group
of girls," she said. "They have loads of potential,
and I am looking forward to next season. We may
possibly be in a new district, which is exciting."

Baseball '09: Schools look for seniors to step up


Pitching, defense keys in Williston

By Rick Burnham
Editor


Chiefland hopes to reload quickly

By Rick Burnham
Editor


t has been more than nine
months since the Williston
Red Devils' baseball team
felt the sting of a one-run
loss in the Region 2-3A baseball
playoffs. Nine months of thinking
What could have been, what might
have been if not for infield errors
and runners left on base.
That game, a 12-11 loss
to Keystone Heights before a
capacity crowd at the Devils Den
in Williston, was on the mind of
Head Coach Jim Smith as his
team took to the practice field late
last week.
Smith, in his 21st year of
coaching baseball, said his team
has had plenty of time to ponder
the disappointment of a year ago,
and is ready to take their game to
the next level in 2009.
"We felt like we gave that one
away we had 10 errors," he said
of the loss to Keystone. "The 12-
13 current players who were in
that game realize how close we
were. We just want to go out and
finish the job."
The key ingredients are in place
for Williston to do just that. Eight
seniors return for their final year,
See Williston, Page 3B


Williston will count on senior catcher Chris
Morrow to provide not only offense and
defense, but leadership as well.


As one of the few returning seniors for
Chiefland, catcher Mike Perkins will have to
lead both on the field and off in 2009.


who paved the way
in 2008: Ori Pitts.
Daniel Pendarvis.
Daniel Galpin. Cory Hanchar.
Kyle Shivers. But there are plenty
of ponies in the stable for Kyle
Parnell and the 2009 Chiefland
Indians. It is just a matter of
getting them experience.
Pamrnell and the Indians began
what he termed a "rebuilding
year" late Tuesday, taking on St.
John in an early-evening contest
at Chiefland High School. In
between that game and the district
tournament, set for April 27-30 in
Williston, the Indians have some
growing up to do, Parnell said.
"I think we are a talented
group, but we lack experience,"
he said. "We do not have a lot of
experience from top to bottom
throughout the lineup, so we are
probably going to experience
some growing pains."
Despite the exodus of a number
of key players including much of
the infield a few familiar faces
return. Mike Perkins returns for
his senior year behind the plate,
and outfielder Clinton Wasson
