community but the majority of them
are from the tri-county area. It brings
tears to my eyes every year."
The numbers are likely to be
somewhat down this year, he added.
"They are offa little bit, and of course
we don't like to see that," he said. "The
economics are a. little different than
they were 18 months ago, and there
are probably some moms and dads
who have had to relook at the situation.
Given the fact that they are going to put
$1,500 in that project over a 12 month
period, some are going to make some
different decisions."
Fair officials made a recent decision
to upgrade their facilities located along
Hwy. 19 in Fanning Springs and the
results are significant. Office space near
the front of the main facility, previously
owned by the Florida Department of
Agriculture, has been handed over to
the fair association.. Etheridge said
members of the association are in
discussion as to how to better use that
space in the future.
The association has also upgraded
the electrical system throughout the
property, greatly enhancing the safety
throughout.
"We spent about $10,000 on the
electrical system in that place," he said.
"We now have it all back up to code,-
where it needs to be."

The ongoing recession will leave its
mark on the Suwannee River Fair this
year, according to the vice president
of the fair association. The number of
animals on exhibit is expected to be
somewhat off, and the corresponding
sales will almost certainly follow.
But, said Brad Etheridge, fair
participants in 2009 can expect the same
outstanding support from individuals
and organizations around the Tri-County
area as in the past.
Etheridge, speaking to the Chiefland
Rotary Club Feb. 11, told club members
that the assistance the fair receives from
the local area is better than any other
location in the state.
"Our kids have always been
fortunate," he said. "I have traveled to
other fairgrounds in the state of Florida,
and the prices our kids receive here are
way beyond what the others get at other
fairgrounds. We just got done with the
Florida State Fair, and the kids there
sold every one of their hogs for resale
price."
A year ago, Etheridge said, sales
totaled $723,070, a whopping figure
considering that few animals were
bought for actual slaughter.
"There are about eight animals that
leave that place that go into somebody's
freezer," he said. "The rest are just
100 percent donations. We have some


Levy 'Cow hunter

passes away Feb.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
'John Clayton (J.C) Partin, 94, a longtime Levy
County resident and one of few surviving "cow
hunters" from the days of the open range in Florida,
-passed away on Feb. 7.
Partin was born in Kissimmee, Fla. and moved to
Levy -County with his parents, John Sr. and Ella in
.1937. He spent most of his life in Levy and Marion
counties as a rancher and farmer.
His son, Bud Partin, said his grandparents brought
their cattle by train to Gulf Hammock when they first
arrived in Levy County. His father, a teenager at the
time, rode the train with the cattle.
S"When the train doors opened, the cattle jumped,
out on the ground in Gulf Hammock, and that's how
we got here," Partin said.
Partin said his father was an exceptionally well-
liked man. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and traveled
around the world. He was generous to people, giving
them their share and often more.
"He was extremely honest," he said.
J.C. Partin, as many knew him, was a down-to-earth
person who didn't care if people were rich or poor. He
'didn't pick his friends based on what their status was
in society. Partin liked poor and rich alike.
During the time of the cow hunters, cow camps were
scattered around the county. The cattle were driven to
the camps and penned to allow the cowboys to work
on them. One year, J.C. Partin found a teenager at one
of the cow camps. The boy said he wanted to go home
with Partin. The boy moved in with Grandma and
Grandpa Partin, according to Bud Partin.
The boy lived like a member of the Partin family for
his entire life. He eventually died when a horse fell on
him, but the story of how J.C. Partin took in the young
boy illustrates the way he lived his life, his son said.
"He knew a lot about cattle and people and didn't
have enemies, Partin said. "Everybody had a tale to
tell about him. I was proud to be his son."
The term "cow hunters" comes from a time in old
Florida when ranchers hunted for their cattle while the
animals grazed on the open range. It was a time when
fences didn't exist in Levy County. The cattle roamed

' Nelson touts stimulus bill


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson briefed local
government officials Tuesday about the.
contents of a $780 billion federal economic
stimulus bill passed by Congress Friday
and signed into law by President Barack
Obama, saying it was a first step toward
reviving the American economy in a global.
recession.
The goal of the bill is to create 3 1/2
million jobs nationally.
Nelson said Florida stands to receive
$12 billion from the stimulus bill, with 80
percent of the money to be spent during the
first year. He provided a general overview
of the bill, but offered few details on how
Levy, Gilchrist or Dixie counties would
directly benefit.
Part of the stimulus bill will pump $2.2
billion into school districts across the state.
Nelson said the money can be used to stop
the budget cutbacks that threaten the jobs
of many teachers. He cited the announced
Layoffs of 1,200 Polk County teachers and
522 teachers in Marion County.
He said $650 million will ensure the


survival of educational programs for
disadvantaged students. An additional $650
million is headed for a program that funds
the education of students with disabilities.
And he said there is money in the
bill to ease budget cuts to Medicaid and
provide the state with additional money
for unemployment benefits. He said the
state has been cutting back on Medicaid
payments as tax revenues drop.
"All this is designed to stimulate the
economy and help people who are hurting,"
he said.
Nelson, D-Fla., said the bill would
provide $1.3 billion to Florida for road
transportation projects and $650 million for
mass transit.
Levy County Commissioner Danny
Stevens said he is not sure the stimulus bill
will create jobs in Levy County, "but it will
help someone."
County Commissioner Lilly Rooks
noted that Levy County stands to receive
$1 million in road funding from the bill, but
the money may have to be divided between
the county and eight municipalities. She

Construction begins along US 19


A Florida Department of Transportation
project to resurface 2.5-miles of U.S. 19 in
Chiefland, between Northwest 14th Avenue
and Rodgers Boulevard (U.S. 129), began
Monday.
Through the first two months, crews
will upgrade signals, replace curb and add
wheelchair accessible ramps at the cross
street intersections. The sidewalk may
be closed in areas and pedestrians will be
directed to use the sidewalk on the opposite
side of the street. Resurfacing is scheduled
to begin in April.
On-street parking will be closed in areas
where work is occurring, so business owners
should make alternate plans for employee
and customer parking during construction.
Access to businesses, residences and
schools will be maintained at all times.
During the project, motorists should


expect daytime lane closures between 8:30
a.m. and 6 p.m., except in school zones
where lane closures also are not allowed
between 1:45 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on
weekdays.
In addition to resurfacing, the project
includes replacing drainage inlets in the
roadway and upgrading the traffic signals
at State Road 345, Park Avenue and North
Fourth Avenue.
Anderson Columbia Company, Inc., of
Lake City is under contract to the FDOT
to complete the $2.2 million project by late
summer 2009.

School board discusses sharp curve near Cedar Key School


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

A sharp curve that goes around Cedar Key School along Whiddon Avenue has the town
of Cedar Key concerned for student and driver safety.
At the Levy County School Board meeting Feb. 17, Interim Director of the Cedar Key
Conimunity Redevelopment Agency Gregory Lang spoke and presented a PowerPoint
presentation to school board members and the audience about two proposed alternatives
to make the road safer, more easily navigable, and provide more parking spaces.
Richard A. Hall from Hall Planning and Engineering, Inc. in Tallahassee was hired
as a consultant to study the school zone from a safety perspective and provide road
construction proposals, Lang said.
At west Whiddon Avenue and the intersection of H Street, a blind, sharp curve that's
created by one of the school buildings has the potential to cause collisions, Lang said.
Another concern is pedestrians crossing the street at the curve.
Lang said according to Hall, the design speed, or how fast a vehicle could negotiate the
road, is also disconcerting.
Right now a vehicle could drive down Whiddon Avenue east of the school in excess

free and were marked and branded by the owners.
The Partin family raised long horns. The cattle were
called Florida scrub cattle. Cow hunters in the tradition of
J.C. Partin were known as crackers. They rode horses and
snapped whips above the battle to drive them. The cracking
sound of the whips yielded the name crackers.
"You would hear a bunch of cowboys coming and you
could hear the cow whips," he said.
Bud Partin went on many long cattle drives with his
father. He said they could leave Bronson and return the
same day from Gulf Hammock with the herd. They knew
the terrain and how long the cattle drive would take. The
only gun they normally carried was for shooting snakes. He
said the cattlemen got along well and disputes were rare.
They tried to take care of each other and worked together
to keep their cattle sorted.
When J.C. Partin and his family would return from
trips, Partin said the tractor was sometimes missing, but
he wasn't worried. J.C. Partin knew his good friends, the

of 55 miles per hour, Land said. A speed of 20 miles per hour or less would be ideal, he
said.
. The narrow road also causes large trucks and those pulling boats to straddle the road's
middle line, he said.
There are two alternatives to alleviate the problems that stem from the sharp curve, he
said: Alternative A, which is an all-yield intersection or roundabout and Alternative B,
which is an all-stop intersection.
Alternative A seems to be the more popular of the two, according to Land, and it would
be navigable by vehicles of all sizes, including trucks and those hauling large boats.
Other construction improvements that were discussed include making the curve on
Whiddon Avenue east of the school a little tighter, which will reduce the design speed
to 20 miles per hour. Also adding palm trees along the curve would create a "sense of
enclosure" along with adding raised curbs on both sides.
Lang said Hall has also recommended the high-visibility "continental" style crosswalk
design, which is numerous wider stripes perpendicular to the road instead of just two
stripes outlining the crosswalk. The new crosswalks will allow students to cross Whiddon
Avenue at H Street and G Street.
On the west side of the school on Whiddon Avenue, Lang suggested the road be moved
over by eight to 10 feet to make room for parallel parking next to the school.
Lang said after the school board meeting that the road reconstruction has been on the
city's safety concern list for years, but now it may be more possible since the city's water
main pipe, which goes around the school, needs to replaced.
"To replace the pipe, you really have to impact the road," Lang said. "You're doing
a substantial amount of damage to the road." The Community Redevelopment Agency

"Eugene Carter folks," had most likely needed the tractor
and borrowed it. That's the -way it was back then. People
were neighborly.
The Partin family still owns quite a bit of land in Levy
County and Marion County. Most of it was purchased years
ago for $4 to $5 per acre. Partin can't recall the family
paying more than that for a piece of land. Much of the land
today is leased to timber companies.
In 1950 or 1951, Partin said the Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter Day Saints bought 300,000 acres of land in the
Cocoa area of Florida. The church needed cattle for the
large holding. J.C. Partin sold church officials 9,000 to
10,000 head of cattle, Partin recalled. And it wasn't all the
cattle he owned.
"There were quite a few cattle left, enough to keep us
busy," Partin said.
Partin described his dad as a real character. He got the
most out of living, and people loved him.
"He enjoyed living... extremely well," he said.

Chiefland city commission approves skateboard park vendor


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland city commissioners on Feb. 9 selected
American Ramp as the company to build the city's first
skateboard park at Delma Locke Community Center.
Company officials have promised to begin construction
by about mid-March. The city is paying for the project with
a $92,000 of Florida Recreation Development Assistance
Program (FRDAP) grant.
The city's Recreation Advisory Committee and local
skaters heard presentations fromAmerican Ramp, Rampage
and RFP Services on Jan. 26. The committee and local
skateboarders liked American Ramp's steel components
and warranty.
Skaters did request design modifications for. the park.
American Ramp has agreed to make the changes within the
allotted budget. The next step is for City Manager Grady
Hartzog to negotiate with American Ramp on the details
of the contract. After that, components of the park can be
shipped to Chiefland and installed on a concrete foundation


already in place. Jones Masonry built the foundation.
Commissioners voted 3-1 to approve American Ramp
as the vendor who will install park. Commissioner Rollin
Hudson voted against the project, asking why local builders
were not given a chance to bid on the contract. With the
national recession in full swing, Hudson said jobs are hard
to come by and he felt someone locally could have done
the work.
Laurie Copeland, financial project coordinator for the
city, said the project bids were advertised locally, but this
type of work is very specialized. She said the city would
not have been protected from liability without having a
certified company install the components.
In other business:
Commissioners honored the three Chiefland Student
of the Month award winners. Mayor Teal Pomeroy made
the presentations.
Chiefland Elementary School first grader Destiny
Jones, daughter of Jennifer Jones, was described by her
teachers as someone who exhibits caring for others in the
classroom. She shares without being asked and possesses a


genuine love for her classmates.
Chiefland Middle School sixth grader Darian Everett,
daughter of Susan Everett, is an honor roll student with a
dynamic personality, her teachers said. She is a hard worker
who completes all assignments and is an avid reader.
Chiefland High School senior Jessie Caudill was
described by her teacher as "Miss Personality." She is a
dedicated student. She is always full of energy and uses
this to her advantage. Jessie is involved in many activities
and played an outstanding role in the recent Pow Wow.
Commissioners gave final approval to the Levy
Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force Operational Assistance
Agreement. That's a mouthful. The agreement gives the
city police department permission to continue working
with the Levy County Drug Task Force for an additional
four years.
-The board declared two aging police vehicles surplus
equipment and authorized staff to transport them to Weeks
Auction for sale. The 2000 Ford Expedition and 2001 Ford
Crown Victoria were donated to the city by the Seminole
County Sheriff's Office.


Governor hopes to

name one interim

commissioner soon
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The governor's office said Tuesday it
hopes to name an interim replacement for
one of the two suspended Levy County
commissioners within seven to 10 days.
"As you know, the Governor's
Appointments Office has conducted
3 interviews for one of the County
Commission vacancies. We hope to be
making that appointment within the next
7-10 days and will hopefully schedule
remaining interviews soon as well,"
spokesman Sterling Ivey said in an e-
mail.
Ivey said in an earlier interview that.the
three people interviewed live in County
Commissioner Sammy Yearty's District
3..Yearty ahd.'District 1I Commissioner
Tony Parker were suspended on Nov.
5 on federal charges of bribery and
conspiracy to commit bribery.
Ivey was asked why the appointment
of interim replacements for Yearty
and Parker, as well as resigned School
Board member Billy Morrison, had
taken as much time as it has. Morrison
announced his Dec. 31 resignation date
early that month. Ivey responded that the
. governor's office is careful to thoroughly
vet each applicant, which takes time.
"Please understand, it is very important
that the appointments office has a large,
diverse pool of applicants and that a
thorough review is conducted before
an appointment is made. In addition,
a complete background check will be
completed on the appointee before he/
she is named," Ivey wrote.
"The Governor looks forward to
making the announcements soon."


State to ask for


public


testimony on nuke plant site


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Is the proposed nuclear power plant site
in southwest Levy County a good location
for a nuclear generation facility?
The state is planning a certification
hearing next week to discuss the site and
take public comment.
The property consists mostly of planted
pine trees. In some areas wetlands were
drained by the former owners to allow more
tree-planting. The land is covered by pine
forests and old logging roads.
The plant itself will be constructed on
about 900 acres of the 5,100-acre tract
four miles north of Inglis. Progress Energy
Florida, the company that plans to build
the plant, says the tree line will completely
obscure sight of the plant. It says all lighting
for the plant will shaded to direct light.
downward rather than into the sky.
County officials have noted that. the
industrial complex will greatly enhance
the county's tax base and add more than
800 high salary jobs. The estimated cost,of
building the plant is $14 billion.
They say nuclear waste from the two
reactors will be stored securely on site and
poses no danger to the public. The company
says plant security will be intense.
But what does the community think about
having a nuclear power plant operating in
southwest Levy County?
The public will have a chance to
weigh in when the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection takes public
comments from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on
Thursday, Feb. 26 at the Inglis Community
Center. A judge from the Florida Division of
Administrative Hearings will preside.
The certification hearing takes place all
week, beginning at 3 p.m. and lasting until 8
p.m. every day through Friday, Feb. 27, but
the only day for public comment is Thursday.
The rest of the week will be open to the

public, but residents can only observe.
DEP officials will evaluate comments
from the public as part of the agency's site
certification process. The hearing is an
important part of the permitting process for
the proposed plant.
The followingweek, the hearing will move
to the Crystal River National Guard Armory.
A public testimony session is set for 3 p.m.
to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3. Although the
public can comment on anything related to
plant certification, this hearing and others
that follow during the week are likely to
focus more on transmission lines from the
new plant.
Public testimony dates are:
3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Monday, March
9, at the Crystal River National Guard
Armory.
3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday, March
10, at The Bethany Center, 18150 Bethany

Cortez Boulevard, Brooksville, Fla.
3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, March
12, at The Savannah Center, 510 Colony
Boulevard, The Villages, Fl.
Depending on turnout, more dates could
be added through March 17 to accommodate
members of the public who haven't spoken,
but the hearing process will conclude on
the 171, according to Progress Energy
spokeswoman Wendy Home.
"Everybody will have a chance to give
their say and have their opinion voiced,"
said Home.
Progress Energy Florida plans to build
two Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactors
at the Levy Nuclear Plant at a cost of $14
billion, plus $3 billion for nearly 200 miles
of transmission lines through nine counties.
The first reactor is scheduled to come on line
in 2016, the second the following year.
The transmission lines in Levy County
would be constructed primarily on the 5,100-
acre plant site itself.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission
will go through a similar but completely
separate certification process on the federal
level. Other state and federal agencies also
have permitting responsibilities.


Progress Energy

Florida to ask for

rate decrease
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Progress Energy 'Florida announced
plans last week to file for a rate decrease
that would lower residential bills in
2009 by $15.08 per 1,000 kilowatt hours
beginning with the first April billing
cycle.
. The company is asking the Florida
Public Service Commission to lower the
fuel charge by $6.90 per 1,000 kilowatt-
hours and reduce the nuclear recovery
charge by $7.80 per 1,000 kilowatt
hours. The total reduction would be $400
million.
Progress Energy Florida charges
customers for the fuel it uses to generate
electricity, a pass-through cost. Customers
are billed for what. the company pays
for fuel. The complay,'s sit passeszo
.savings-whenever fuel charges drop.,',.,
State law allows the company to assess
a nuclear recovery charge on customer
bills. The company charges customers in
advance for construction costs associated
with building a nuclear power plant.
The charge had been $14.09 per 1,000
kilowatt-hours. The proposed rate cut
drops it to $7.80 in 2009.
However, the company has also begun
preparing to ask the PSC for a 2010 base
rate increase. If approved by the PSC,
Progress Energy's 2010 base rate increase
would generate additional' revenues of
$475 million to $550 million annually,
according to the company.
The 2010 base rate has yet to be
determined. The company said the
increase would cover its investments for
reductions of greenhouse gases and other
emissions, decreased dependence on fossil
fuels, expansion of nuclear generation and

Deputies arrest high school student for battery


A 16-year-old Bronson High School student was arrested
on two felony charges and a misdemeanor Feb. 10 after
she disrupted an in-school suspension class and struck a
female deputy who tried to take her into custody.
The girl was arrested on charges of battery on a law
enforcement officer, resisting with violence, and disrupting
a school function.
School officials said the girl was angry after she was
sent to the office for listening to her IPOD in the school
suspension room and began cursing at school officials in
the front office when they told her she was about to be
suspended from school.
When deputy Donna Roe attempted to take her into
custody, the girl swung and struck the officer's arm. The
officer requested backup units. After the girl spoke to her
mother on the phone and told her she was at the breaking
point and was going to punch the officer in the face, she
-hung up on her mom.
When the officer asked her again to put her hands behind
her back and stop resisting, she agreed this time around.
She was taken to the Levy County Jail.

Major Mike Sheffield demonstrates the new
"CyberSuite Kiosk machine located in the
Sheriff's Office lobby.

Sheriff's Office


announces new


payment system

The Levy County Sheriff's Office will have a new
procedure called CyberSuite beginning March 2. This
is a new endeavor at the jail to deposit money into.the
inmates' canteen accounts.
This will allow inmates' family, friends and loved
ones more ways to deposit money into an inmates'
account and will also improve the speed and accuracy
of deposits.
The new CyberSuite will allow the following method
for deposits:
Website: www.inmatedeposits.com. Visa/Master
Card/debit cards
The kiosk located in the Sheriffs Office Lobby.
Visa/Ma iter Cards/debits and cash deposits. The kiosk
is open M-F, 8 a:nft-tot 5 p.m. only. The kiosk will only
accept $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100 bills.
Toll free 1-866-345-1884
Internet users can visit the secure CyberSuite website
to set up a private account with a private user ID and
password. The system will help manage deposits to
specific inmates, allow receipt printing and provide
history deposit amounts by inmate and date.
Telephone payments may be made 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, by calling 1-866-345-1884: A
customer service representative will accept deposits
quickly and easily from Visa/Master Card/debit cards
and will provide confirmation numbers for tracking
deposits.
Deposits made by any of these methods will
reach the inmates' accounts within minutes. This will
eliminate delays in funds availability resulting from
mail delivery, holidays or weekends.
As of March 2 the Levy County Jail will no longer
accept money orders for deposit into an inmate's
canteen account by mail or in person. All deposits must
be made through CyberSuite.

thought it was a great opportunity to go ahead and have
Whiddon Avenue reconfigured and H Street paved along with
it, he said.
"All of this will be financed through the water main so
there will be no cost to the school board," Levy County School
Board Superintendent Bob Hastings said, much to the relief
of the school board members.
It's up to the Levy County School Board, the Cedar Key
Commission and the City of Cedar Key to vote to approve the
plans, but Lang said he hopes construction can begin in four
to five months at the earliest.
He said he wanted to stress that Alternatives A and B are
just two preliminary ideas and he is open to suggestions.
"The bottom line is this isn't getting pushed on anybody,"
he said. "I really want a healthy dialogue among the parties."

Bayley basset,



super pooper

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I did my part to help jumpstart the local economy the
other day. I bought a dog and a stack of newspapers.
More on the papers later.
Bayley the basset hound came home with me
early Saturday afternoon. She's a tri-colored model,
complete with big ole paws and ears big enough to hear
you coming from a mile away.
She also has that deep-throated
bark that bassets are known for.
I know I heard it about 8,000
times over the first 48 hours.
Having said goodbye to 11
brothers and sisters, that dog
cried and whined and barked
pretty much continuously '.''
from the moment I put her in
my truck to the moment I am
typing this story. Long about
4:05 Sunday morning, I took
her out of her crate and put her on the bed with me.
She stopped whining just long enough to pee all over
tarnation, and back in the crate she went.
I managed about 16 minutes of sleep on Saturday and
Sunday nights. Combined. That might be enough for an
eight-week old basset hound, but it ain't enough for 47-
year-old man.
Still, if barking and whining was the only issue, I
would be okay. Dogs bark. And baby dogs whine. I
understand that.
But that dog poops like a Clydesdale. All weekend
long she'd crouch down and initiate the launch sequence
and I'd run and scoop her up and head for the door. We
practiced all day Sunday and essentially had the process
perfected by sundown.
I told an old high school buddy and he recommended
putting some newspapers down.
"Get a stack of Journals and just line the floor with
them," he said.
I think not. That will not be the final fate of a single
Journal paper. At least not in my home.
So I went out and bought several copies of a locala"
paper. I thought it was the least I could do to help support
the "local" economy. Buy "local." That's what I always
say. And since this paper is "local", I bought several
copies and put them on the floor.
Bayley took it from there, and she knew just where
to aim. That dog could be a bomber pilot if she wanted
to. She'd do her business and I'd pick her up and pet
her to reaffirm that she did well. Then I'd feed her again
because it was fun to watch.
That's a somewhat disgusting commentary, but a
relevant one, given the "local" angle.
Bayley and I made it through the weekend with
frazzled nerves and stained carpet. But we did make it.
Somewhere along the way, I discovered that she likes her
back rubbed and belly scratched. She'll do fine, once the
whining stops. I fete that dog (whatever that means.)
Want a best friend? Buy a basset hound. Want to buy
local? Pick up a Levy County Journal.

Letters to the

Chiefland Rotary Club
Editor 's Note: The Chiefland Rotary Club
donates new dictionaries to area schools each
year in an attempt to enhance literacy among Levy
SCounty students. Students respond with heartfelt
letters of appreciation to Rotary Club members. The
Levy County Journal will, from time-to-time publish
letters received by the Chiefland Rotary Club.

Dear Rotary Club Members,

Hey I am Tyler. Thank you for the dictionaries.
I can learn about words. You rock! Here is a joke:
Why did the cookie go to the doctor? He felt a little
crumbly. See you later.
Sincerely,
Tyler Capps

Dear Rotary Club Members,

I would like to thank you for all the new
dictionaries you have gave us. Now all of us can
learn the meanings of new words. The brand new
dictionaries can help me with things like meanings


of words, how to spell words, how to say words,
help to write a story or sentences and learn new
words. This new dictionary has new words and those
new words may help me a lot with words I do not
know. Again, I think you for the new dictionaries.

Sincerely,
Laura Herrera

More humility would


go a long way in the oval office


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

President Barack Obama has succumbed to the
same political ailment that made George W.
Bush unpopular. Obama won the presidency. He
believes the office belongs to him. He can do
with it as he pleases.
He is partly correct. He is the officer holder.
But the office of president belongs to the people of the
Unit ed'Sta /.1~s~6'g hnihly a f~clchinfice and sukiject
to all the negative influences and temptations that come
with having great political and government power. But it
belongs to the people. It bears repeating.


I am certain it's a reasonably
heady experience becoming the
leader of the free world. Secret
Service agents guard you and
your family around the clock. The
press follows you around like lost
sheep, dwelling on every word


"Presidents car
from the Amer
difficult for the
the poverty an
thtf nn,


and analyzing it for content. u, I e Puu, ea
It's easy for any president
to get lost in the Washington Terr
beltway and forget who they
were before they were sworn into
office. It's especially so for someone like Obama, who
by all accounts is a master politician and knows how to
manipulate the political system to his advantage.
A little humility from Obama would be nice. We didn't
get much of that from Bush. He was the millionaire from
Kennebunkport, Maine pretending to be a Texas cowboy.
Talk about pn identity crisis. I will admit Bush did a good
job of protecting us after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He
kept Al Qaeda running from cave to cave like rats in Iraq.
History will reflect this f4t.
Obama also lacks humility. He is the toast of the
town in the northeastern U.S. He's got a different type of
swagger. It's more like a politician who has tapped into a
rich vein of political power and hasn't decided what to do
with it. But a little humility would be nice.
The trouble with politicians is that they are politicians.
If you tell them to be more humble, they will give you
their best impression of a humble person, without actually
being one. They will give you their best speech about the
need for humility. And people often believe them.
If Obama had been a humble servant of the American
people, I think the economic stimulus package would
have had a different look last week. This legislation had
the potential to become one of the most important bills
ever passed by Congress, and there were good aspects
to it. But the package was also laced with pork for
congressional districts. A considerable part of the package
had nothing to do with stimulating the economy. I think
that was an extremely cynical move on Obama's part. The
honest thing would have been to use every single penny
of this bill to stimulate job production in the United
States. That didn't happen.
Obama is a Harvard-educated lawyer. He is very
intelligent. He saw the economic stimulus package as a
political opportunity. I think he was cynical enough to
believe that the economy would probably recover on its
own in a year-and-a-half. It usually does. Knowing that, I
think his strategy was to make a big show of creating an
economic stimulus package that would look good to the
American people, knowing he could claim credit for the


recovery in 12 to 18 months anyway.
It would be nice to see a lot more humility as Obama
goes through his term of office. Presidents can become
isolated from the American people. It's difficult for them
to experience the poverty and hopelessness of the poorest
Americans. They can't feel the pain of small business
owners trying to survive in a shaky national economy..
They-meet with their staff regularly. If they're smart, they
meet with the leaders of Congress regularly. But they are
.largely isolated from the reality of the people they govern.
!That fact alone can mak them arrogantfand insincere,
until election time rolls around of course. A little humility
would tone down the arrogance and leave presidents open
to spiritual guidance from above, in my opinion.
There was nothing more
1 become isolated important than the passage of an
honest economic stimulus bill last
ican people. Its week, but I don't think we got it.
m to experience The bill was part stimulus and part
id hopelessness pork. I think that's a tragedy in
t Americans." itself. Politics entered the picture.
SAmericans were the victims.
Obama can make it up to me by
y Wift sincerely and quickly addressing
reforms on Wall Street. Corrupt
mortgage investment banks and
credit card companies are badly in need of reform. Bond
rating firms Like Moody's and Standards and Poors, who
have thus far escaped notice, should have been the private
watchdogs in the financial system that protected us from
the banking thugs, but they were also asleep at the wheel.
Their role in the banking debacle needs to be examined.
The bond rating firms were supposed to assess the ability
of these big banks to meet their obligations. Instead
we've seen a major collapse of the banking system on the
national level, primarily because big mortgage companies
made bad decisions that left them broke.
Obama can also make it up to me by implementing
a common sense energy policy, which includes
considerably more oversight and regulation of the
Chicago Mercantile Exchange. You know the exchange
don't you. That's where the traders ran up oil prices
and gave us $4.11 regular gasoline and $4.90 diesel last
summer. The rich oil and gas companies bear as much
guilt. They were making extreme profits at the expense
of the American people and the economy, and there was
precious little regulation.
A common sense energy policy would relate as much
to developing alternative energies as it does to drilling
for more oil domestically. It would be extremely cynical
on Obama's part to go with the official party line among
the Democrats in Congress and ignore the need to
drill for more oil in the United States. We need energy
independence. We can't reach that point in the short term
by ignoring the fact that 70 percent of our oil is imported
from foreign countries or ignoring the need to develop
more oil production domestically.
Obama is going to have to learn to listen to more than
just Democrats. He needs to realize that Republicans have
good ideas, too. That's the mistake of most presidents.
They listen to their own party and no one else.
A little humility would go a long way toward
improving the quality and productivity of his presidency.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED
RULE:
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 definitions of General and
Small General Water Use Per-
mits (WUPs) set forth in Rule
40D-2.041, F.A.C., which was
recently amended. Gen-eral
WUPs are issued for combined
annual average daily water de-
mands of less than 500,000 gal-
Ions 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 cate-
gorized as Small General WUPs
to the General WUP category,
which amendments included
defin-ing 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 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 Hillsbor-ough County. In that
specific area, WUPs authorizing
less than 100,000 gpd will be
elevated to the General WUP
category if the maximum daily
withdrawal quantity for crop pro-
tection 9rtother use equals e-x
ceeds 1,000,b00 gpd. This is to
due to the concentration of agri-
cultural water use in that specific
area, primarily for strawberries,
which re-quire significant crop
protection withdrawals during
the winter growing season. The
effect of these amendments is
to limit the Small General WUP
category to those combined an-
nual average water demands
of less than 100,000 gpd that
require only minimal staff evalu-
ation, due to little-to-no impact
upon the water resources.
THE PERSON TO BE CON-
TACTED REGARDING THE
PROPOSED RULES AND A
COPY OF THE PROPOSED
RULE TEXT IS: Martha A.
Moore, Senior Attorney, Office
of General Counsel, 2379 Broad
Street, Brooksville, FL 34604-

said that spreads the money thin. She sees
nothing in the bill to help the county with
needed bridge repair projects.
Nelson responded that the stimulus
bill wasn't designed to take care of every
transportation need in the United States. He
said the federal highway bill will address the
country's transportation needs later in the
year.
Rooks said it appears the Levy County
School Board will fare well under the
stimulus bill, which she supports, but the bill
is less generous with road funding. She said
the resurfacing of a portion of County Road
.345 last year cost $1.3 million. The project
kept one road construction company busy
for three months.
"If this is geared to put people back to
work, I don't know how that will create
jobs, or will it just keep a contractor going
for another couple of months," she said.
County Coordinator Fred Moody said
Stevens, Rooks and County Commission


Chairwoman Nancy Bell attended the
meeting in Trenton in hopes of getting
answers to their questions about the stimulus
bill and how the county might be able to
access federal funds.
He said questions remain about how
the anticipated $1 million in stimulus
transportation funds will benefit the county
when eight municipalities eligible for the
funds.
"There weren't a' lot of answers to the
questions, but it's a start," he said.
The county commission has called for
a joint meeting with municipalities at 6
p.m. next Tuesday to talk about the $1
million in transportation funding. Moody
said the county hopes to receive additional
information by then.
Chiefland City Commissioner Teresa
Barron and Financial Project Coordinator
Laurie Copeland attended along with
Trenton officials and Gilchrist County
commissioners.

Stimulus may provide path to Manatee Springs
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

County Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce Greenlee announced Tuesday that
the federal economic stimulus bill may result in a $2.5 million bike path being constructed
along Manatee Springs Road.
Greenlee told Levy County commissioners Tuesday that officials at the District 2
office of the Florida Department of Transportation in Lake City wouldn't make any firm
promises for the bike path project, but he said they were optimistic about it chances.
The money would come from road enhancement funding in the stimulus bill.
Enhancement money builds pedestrian walkways, bicycle paths and other projects that
give the public access to transportation and recreation.
Greenlee said the bike path has been listed for seven years as a proposed enhancement
project by the Levy County Commission, which is one of the reasons it appeals to the
state. The stimulus bill is aimed at projects that can be started quickly.
The bike path would connect the Nature Coast Trail to Manatee Springs State Park.
The trail runs for 37.1 miles from south Chiefland to Cross City, at one point crossing
the Suwannee River by way of an old railroad trestle. The trail is a favorite haunt of
the bicycle community as well as joggers and walkers from Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie
counties. It passes through all three counties.
County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell and Commissioner Lilly Rooks also
attended the Lake City meeting with FDOT officials. Bell is a strong backer of the bike
path project and lobbied for it in Lake City. She said the project is needed.
The commissioners and Greenlee learned at the Lake City meeting that Levy County
is also likely to receive up to $1 million in road construction funding from the stimulus
bill. This money would come from a different pool of money than the enhancement funds
min the stimulus bill.
Commissioners have scheduled at 6 p.m. meeting next Tuesday to discuss the funding
with representatives of the eight municipalities in the county, which are also eligible for
the money.
Greenlee has recommended the resurfacing of County Road 40 in the Inglis-
Yankeetown area as a road project for the $1 million. He said, he suggested CR 40 because
of its condition, but he realizes the distribution of the funds could be diluted if all eight.
municipalities get a piece of the $1 million.

Williston edges P.K. Yonge



for district championship


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

High school basketball is a different game in
the district playoffs. It is intense.
In Saturday's district championship between
the Williston Red Devils and the P.K. Yonge
Blue Wave the caliber of play was more like two
Division One college teams going to battle.
The sound level in the Chiefland High School
gymnasium was at an ear-ringing level as the
,teams fought for control of the game. Both teams
worked hard to move the ball inside for higher
percentage shots. But the defense was of such
intensity, there were no high percentage shots.
Drives to the basket were met aggressively. Bodies
flew. No apologies.
Both teams jockeyed under the defensive
boards for rebounds and opportunities for fast
break passes. The action was furious. Jump balls
were wicked affairs. Players were slung to the
floor. The teams knew each other's moves. They
respected each other's talents. It was a matter of
who could prevail.
When the battle concluded in overtime, the
Williston Red Devils had defeated P.K. Yonge 74-
67. It had been the first meeting of the two teams
on neutral ground this year. Each team had beaten
the other on their home court.
They could meet, again if both teams win this
week in the first round of the state playoffs. The
game would be in Williston's home court. There
won't be an empty seat if it happens.
Williston and P.K. Yonge were equals in many


ways, and that showed on the scoreboard all
night as the lead changed hands numerous
times. Williston missed a chance to put it away
in regulation when Issac Floyd's 3-point shot
hit the back of the rim at the buzzer. Both teams
were already weary from the frantic pace.
In overtime, the Blue Wave fell behind in
the final two minutes and was forced to foul
Williston. The Red Devils made enough free
throws to close out the game. Deonte Welch
hit two free throws to expand the lead to 71-67
with 29 seconds left and J. Edwards and J. Hunt
added the remaining points from the charity
strip in the final 15 seconds.
Williston Coach David Vespignani had
watched his talented team miss eight free throws
in a row in regulation. He said the team made
free throws when it counted.
Vespignani said the Red Devils showed a
great deal of heart and commitment throughout
the game. They refused to quit.
"We started this back in April. We lost in the
semi finals. This is the result of the work they
put in," Vespignanii said.
Williston's main headache all night was
stopping Blue Wave point guard Josh Snodgrass.
His quick ball fakes on drives to the basket
kept the Red Devils guessing. He often hit the
shot, but Snodgrass sometimes opted to dish to
an open teammate near the basket. He was the
tallest Blue Wave on the court and scored 35
points. Vespignani said the Red Devils haven't

Chiefland boys win season opener against Bronson


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer,

The much anticipated clash between
the Chiefland and Bronson baseball teams"
ended early Friday night with a 12-4 victory
by the Indians in six innings.
Indian pitcher Jacob Reidy got his first
win as a varsity player. He held the Bronson
bats in check for three innings before Adam
Burton relieved him.
The Indians loaded the bases several
times, which led to unearned runs off
Bronson errors.
Coach Kyle Parnell was pleased overall
with the performance of his team.
"We pitched well and had some timely
hitting," Parnell said. "We had a little more
hitting throughout the lineup."
Parnell's team hosted the pre-season
-lassic under the lights. Night games will
become less common this year throughout
the county due to budget cutbacks.
The Eagles gave up at least five runs
:n errors and allowed base runners with
fielding errors. It wasn't what Coach Tom
Pogue had in mind.
Bronson hadn't practiced under the


lights this season due to budget constraints,
but Pogue said neither had Chiefland. He
said that can't be used as the reason for the
fielding errors.
"We just didn't play a very clean game,"
Pogue said. "You can't play a' team like
Chiefland and have six and seven out
innings."
The Eagles did give up a considerable
number of hits, including doubles and
triples.
In the first inning, Adam Burton doubled,
Reidy doubled, Clenton Wasson reached
base on an error and Burton scored on an
error.
In the bottom of the fifth, Burton
walked, Wasson singled and Reidy reached
base on an error, loading the bases. Wasson
singled to bring in Burton; Mike Perkins
reached base on an error that scored two
runs; Wasson reached base on an error;
Parish Parnell reached base on an error that
brought Perkins home.
In the sixth inning Jeremy Hayes hit a
home run, Dane Cothron walked, Wasson
singled to bring in Cothron and Reidy
singled to bring in Wasson.
Bronson scored in the first and third

innings. Tyler Martenson scored the first
run of the game on a hit by Kelby Barber,
who was thrown out sliding into third.
In the third inning, Martenson singled
and Jakob Williams singled. Barber hit a


double to score Martenson and Anthony
Duncan singled to drive in Jakob Williams
and Barber.
That was the end of the scoring for
Bronson.


Williston comeback foils Chiefland

B Rick Burnham
Editor


Williston claimed its first softball victory
of the year Tuesday, a come-from-behind 6-4
win over Chiefland.
The Lady Red Devils (1-2) scored four
times in the top of the sixth inning to shock
the Indians, who fell to 2-1 with the loss. Dana
Hunn had the big hit of the inning, a towering
blast to centerfield to score the go-ahead runs.
Afterward, Williston Head Coach Robert
Patterson spoke of his team's ability to hang
tough after being down early.
"We did not give up, and we were able to
put a full game together," he said. "Chiefland
is a good team, and we knew we had to hit the
ball. We kept fighting and hitting, fighting and
hitting. Fortunately we were able to put some
good hits together and win."
Chiefland took a 2-0 first-inning lead on

unn hits a ball in the top of the sixth


Bronson beats St. Johns


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Bronson High School's varsity
baseball team defeated St. Johns'
Lutheran 11-0 last week in a
preseason tournament hosted by
Chiefland.
Eagle pitcher Lucas Morrison
got his first win as a varsity player
using his fast ball and curve to
keep St. Johns off the bases.
The final two scores came on
a home run by Jacob Williams in
the seventh inning. The homer
drove in a run.
"We hit well. We pitched well
and we played defense well, but
we have a long way to go," said
Coach Tom Pogue.
Tyler Martensen tripled to
drive in two runs and Morrison
got a hit that drove in two. Mario
Spadavecchia's hit drove in two


runs. Allen Brooks scored on an
error and Williams' homer drove
in a run.
Pogue was without the services
of pitcher Kelby Barber for both
games of the tournament, and
Barber will probably miss much
of the season as a pitcher. He has
a tendon problem in his throwing
arm that can only heal with rest.
Barber is a potential Division
One college prospect. Neither
his parents, Tracy and Vadin
Barber, nor Pogue want to take a
chance on ruining his chances of a
college career. Pogue said Barber
definitely has a future on the next
level.
"I'm not going to be the one
who messes his pitching arm
up," Pogue said. "Those elbow
injuries, there's low blood flow in

Chiefland disposes of Dixie County in season opener


Story and photo by.Rick Burnham
Editor


Chiefland's Taylore Fuller takes a healthy rip at a pitch during the first inning of
the Feb. 12 game between the Lady Indians and Dixie County.


The Chiefland Lady Indians softball team got its 2009 season off to an impressive start
with a 4-0 road win over Dixie County Feb. 12.
Freshman catcher Taylore Fuller drove in .three runs with a pair of hits and scored
another, while Brittany Davis and Kristen Trail combined for a two-hit shutout on the
mound.
Fuller reached base three of the four times she came to the plate in the game, including
in the fourth inning when she lined a hit to left centerfield that rolled all the way to the
fence. Davis, who had reached base on a hit of her own moments before, came all the way
around to score and give Chiefland a 1-0 lead.
Fuller later scored on a hit by Amber Richardson to make it 2-0.
Chiefland would add a run in the fifth on a double by Rebecca Wilkerson and a sacrifice
fly by Fuller. The Lady Indians put their final run on the board in the top of the seventh.
Wilkerson lined a single to left field and advanced to second when leadoff hitter Aimee
Biehl walked. After Davis flied out to left, Fuller scored Wilkerson once again with
another hit.
The four runs were more than enough for Davis and Trail. Davis, a senior, faced the
minimum number of batters in her four innings, allowing only a single and a walk. Both
those runners were thrown out on the bases. Following the game, Davis said the key to
beating Dixie County was her team's defense.
'"I felt really comfortable with our defense," she said. "I think everybody got their first-
game jitters out."
Chiefland coach Wayne Weatherford said his team played an all-around good game,
both at the plate and in the field.
"We did not have any errors, so that was a plus," he said. "Shelbie (Hastings) had two
or three good stops at second. Everybody hit the ball we went to the plate expecting to
hit instead of taking a walk. All in all, it was a good team effort."


Union County survives Williston girls


By Ryan Butler

The Union County girls' basketball team was able to hold
off Williston in the first round of the regional tournament
by the narrowest of margins- and a few inches.
The Tigers won 51-50 over the Lady Devils Feb. 12,
with the visiting team's shot to potentially take the lead
rimming out with just, under a minute left in the game.
Union County was able to avoid the upset and advance to
the next round of the playoffs.
Besides the thrilling conclusion to the contest, the game
was noteworthy for the seven technical fouls accumulated
between the two teams. Both coaches received at least
one tech, and Union County head coach Tron Griffin was
ejected late in the second half.
After Williston missed four free throws in a row, the
Tigers were called for an offensive foul, and the ensuing
argument from Griffin resulted in his ejection. The ejection
delayed the game, and during the pause several fans from
both teams began shouting at each.other.
After tempers settled on and off the court, Williston's
Erica Mason made two out of four of the free throws
stemming from the technicals. That cut the Union County
Red Devils, from Page 1 B

a long home run by freshman Taylore Fuller.
Fuller and Brittany Davis scored fourth inning
runs to increase the Lady Indians' lead to 4-1.
Williston came back with a run in the fifth
to make it 4-2. Hunn drove in Crissy Rawls,
who had reached base on a bunt single. The.
Lady Red Devils then scored four more in
the pivotal sixth. Alneidra Graham and Tori
Stamper reached on infield hits, and Kayla
Thorrington lined a double to right centerfield.
Mallory Brochetti reached base on an infield
hit, and Hunn lifted the eventual game-winner
to deep left center.
Coach Wayne Weatherford said his team


lead to one, but the six missed free throws in the final two
minutes proved costly down the stretch.
Williston sophomore Kae'etta Jackson followed the free
throws by giving the Lady Devils their first lead since the
opening minutes of the game. However, Union County's
Ash'li' Watkins responded with 2 points of her own, which
proved to be the decisive score with a little under a minute
to go.
The Tigers added two more free throws after Watkins'
shot, and Mason's layup with seconds left merely narrowed
the margin of victory.
Union County had control of the game for most of the
contest, but the underdog Williston squad never gave up
while playing in a hostile environment on the road. The
Tigers were up by as many as nine in the third quarter, but
the Lady Devil's defense and ability to drive to the basket
kept the game competiti\ e.
Mason was the key scorer for the team as she has been
all season, leading her squad with 16 points, Kim Dobbins
also had a huge game offensively with 15 points while
Jackson put in 8 for the Lady Devils. Asha McDonald,
Cinnemon Robinson and Ericka Floyd added 4, 3 and 2
points, respectively.


is every bit as good as the talented Williston
squad, but needs to learn how to play a seven-
inning game.
"Every time we have ever played Williston,
we have had to fight to win no matter what,"
he said. "And you had to fight the full seven
innings. I cannot stress that enough."
Stamper proved effective in relief of starting
pitcher Laurrin Howard. Amber Richardson
and Kristen Trail pitched in relief of Davis,
who started for Chiefland.
Davis scored in the first inning on Fuller's
homerun, a blast that left the large crowd
speechless.

that area and they are slow
to heal."
Barber, who.is a switch
hitter atthe plate, batted left
handed for the tournament
and also played shortstop
for the Eagles. He was
able to make contributions
there.
But doctors don't know


how much time it will
require for the tendon in
his elbow to recover. He
could miss most of the
season or the entire season
as a pitcher. That's a big
loss for Bronson.
Pogue views Barber
as the best athlete on the
field.

THE PINK PANTHER 2
(Running time: 92 minutes)
Rated PG
Steve Martin, Jean Reno, Emily Mortimer, Andy
Garcia, Alfred Molina

For all his imitation of Peter Sellers' Inspector
Clouseau, Steve Martin is really his own Clouseau. I
am a huge fan of Sellers, but I can put that aside for this
review.
Steve Martin is very good at physical comedy. There
are amusing scenes that have been ground down from
overexposure through TV commercials for the movies
until they aren't funny anymore. Still, Clouseau bumbles
his way into our hearts. Although he does everything
wrong, he is not truly stupid, just a little dense. While
pursuing the thief of the Pink Panther diamond and other
great, historic treasures, he does outrageous things and I
laughed in spite of myself.
. Martin anti the rest of the cast are silly, funny, and
absurd. The movie is perfect for families. The Pink
Panther 2 has slapstick violence, no blood, no bad
language, no sex but double-entendre instead. It
should be fine for children as young as 7 who may not
understand everything going on, but will love Steve
Martin dressed as,a Spanish dancer dancing across the
tables in a restaurant. The Pink Panther 2 should be fun
for the whole family.

CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC
(Running time: 112 minutes)'
Rated PG
Starring Isla Fisher, Hugh Dancy, Joan Cusack, John
Goodman, John Lithgow

I have not read the book, so I went in not knowing
what to expect. I had no idea the Confessions of a
Shopaholic and Isla Fisher would be so funny!


Hair. The older you get, the less you have. And what'
you do have is usually the wrong color or in the wrong
spot. I seem to be spending an inordinate amount of
time just trying to get mine to look sort of like it used to,
which for me .is not necessarily a good goal.
You see, for a few years during my tender childhood
years, my mother was a beautician, as they were called
in those days, and she was not above using her two
daughters as guinea pigs for new styles or as practice
dummies for the old ones.
My poor sister, four years my elder, looked liked a
40-year-old woman in her junior high pictures. That
was during the really poufy; bouffant period. At least
she was allowed to keep her hair. I, on the other hand,
suffered the indignity of having mine cut off at any
given moment, usually right after the arrival of the latest
hairstyle magazine, Mother being eager to try her hand
at the trendy children's cuts.
Have I ever mentioned that she was legally blind in
one eye? It's true. My own daughters were horrified to
see tthildhood pictures of us. (Not any more than me,
thinking that I had burned them all years ago.)
We weren't the only ones to endure Mother's skills
with razor and color bottles. She'was way ahead of her
time with the wild colors, like the time she was going for
a beautiful blonde shade on the head of her heretofore
best friend,, only in her blissful half-blindness, she
produced a screaming shade of neon green that would
make today's kids ... well, green with envy.
They had to call the woman's husband, make up
some bogus story as to why she had to spend the night


This is the story of Rebecca Bloomwood, a young
woman working and shopping in New York City.
Rebecca has never met a designer handbag she didn't
like. Or shoes, or coat, for that matter. She cannot
resist the beautiful things shining brightly from the
windows of Manhattan's toniest shops.
Rebecca maxes out her credit cards to the tune of
$16,000. Then $he loses her writing job. Now she has
to dodge the bill collector dogging her steps. Rebecca
wants desperately to write for her favorite fashion
magazine. But she ends up at "Successful Savings,"
a dull finance magazine. But Rebecca gives the
place glamour and combines finance and fashion to
create a column that talks about money in a fresh and
interesting way that appeals to real people.
Confessions of a Shopaholic is a movie with
many good messages. Mostly it's about not letting
"things" take over your life and not living above your
means. Other good messages are: don't deny having
a problem, be responsible for paying what you owe
in life, don't sell out your friends, don't deceive
your boss, and be truthful in life. All these messages
come with plenty of laughs and some of the most
outrageously fabulous and glamorous clothes you've
ever seen.
Confessions of a Shopaholic has no violence, bad
language or sex. The excesses of a young woman
gone wild with a fistful of credit cards are shown in a
funny and moving way. Isla Fisher is adorable. This
delightful movie should be fine for fashionistas 9 years
old and up. Younger children may not understand
about credit cards, but they may still enjoy the colors,
costumes and slapstick humor of this chick flick.

(Editor 's Note: "Movie Choices For Kids, a
nationally syndicated column by movie guru Jean
Joachim, is featured each week in the Levy County
Journal)


at our house, and then send me and my sister (we were
teenagers by then) to the only all-night drugstore in
town to find whatever we could to tone down this slight
mistake in chemistry. Nothing doing. Mother bought
het:ajwig., ;" U ...J ..:
u Shebought,:me' one toopduring-nmy senior year in -
high school. Fortunately, she had given up her shop (of
many horrors) but unfortunately for me, she still had
some of the vicious tools of her trade in various places,
like the hall bath.
I sleepily went in there one night, thinking I was
picking up a comb, when in reality it was a straight
razor and before you could say "Sweeney Todd" I had
500 different lengths of hair. My senior picture shows
me in a very stylish shag wig.
Now our girls are doing their own thing with their
lovely locks, such as dyeing select strands any color of
the rainbow. We had resisted these requests for such
abnormal colorings until one day they discovered my
teenage diary. There, in my same illegible script were
the words, "Mother won't let me dye my hair blue." We
just shut-up and let the games begin.
Short of burning off all of my hair (Grace of God), I'
have done everything known to man to my own head of'
hair, so at least I can offer the voice of experience when
disaster strikes. And I will impart these oh so soothing
and comforting words, words familiar to every woman
in America:
"It will grow back."

THE CHURCH MAKES A JOYFUL NOISE


After a series of rather unfortunate events and untimely
departures, my pastor reluctantly named me his new music
minister, just months after I was saved. Since it'd take all
day to catalog the series of cataclysmic events necessitating
such a preposterous decision, I'll just tell you, his list of
options included the church gathering around an eight-
track humming "Kum Ba Yah." Looking .,
back, that might've been the way to go.
My only credentials suitable to the job
were that I owned a guitar, and that the
world's music scene had already busted
my bubble concerning ever attaining
fame or fortune with it.
Despite those immense qualifications,' "
I knew I had my work cut out for me. I had
no background whatsoever in Christian
music. I'd have guessed the first line to
"Amazing Grace" was probably "God is But Anywi
good, God is great...." I'm telling you with Guy
I was greener than a croaking tree frog
caught in a John Deere grass catcher!
My first mistake was to open up the choir loft to
whoever felt they could make a joyful noise. It was a
wonderful recruiting method, but after the first week I was
rummaging through some mismatched old robes to find
enough to accommodate all the new noise makers when
the pastor pulled me aside.
"Uh... Guy," he said, "I've noticed most of the church
is positioned behind me now while I preach?"
I nodded, smiling with satisfaction.
"And while it's great to have a really BIG choir," he
continued, "You do realize they should at least be members
of this church?"
I winced and stomped at the new thought. Ofi his way
out he added, "Oh, and we're getting complaints about the
neighborhood dogs howling."
It turns out the pastor was not only patient and forgiving,
he was one smart dude. He simply suggested I reposition


Sprintgouse Quieters
Springhouse Quilters enjoyed a very successful day
last Tuesday with 51 members and guests attending
the monthly business meeting. The group enjoyed a great
social time renewing friendships and sharing quilting
stories. Show and tell had many new completed quilted
projects, all being planned for showing in the November
quilt show. The group is being challenged this year to
make large lap quilts for the Trenton Dialysis Center. The
creativeness of the group will be challenged again this year
by Beverly Shobe as she is asking members to participate
in a "Pet" challenge. Members will make a quilted object
of their favorite pet with these items to be shown during
the September meeting.
The workshop for February will be a Stack and Whack
project with Mary Kay Lucas and Faith Stanton teaching
the group. The Nite Owls project this week with be a Bow
Tie block for use in their new sampler quilt.
The beginning classes for Springhouse are now in their
fifth week and will be continued through March. The
beginner classes give new members a chance to learn
the basic quilting techniques as they begin their quilting
career.
For additional information on Springhouse Quilters,
contact'Lois Scott, 463-2207.

my big loud rock-n-roll guitar amp over behind the choir
loft. Sure enough, after a few more services a big portion of
new volunteers were culled right out. Immediately things
began to turn around, including the pastor, who was no
longer preaching to the choir!
I continued to feel overwhelmed however. I must've
been the only music director in history to show
up Sunday mornings asking the drummer,
"':" "How's that first song go again?" I was
.': suffering from a serious case of Melodical
Aorta Malfunction, complicated by extreme
Lyrical Lostitis.
I recall one service in particular. I'd just
finished a song when suddenly I couldn't get
the rhythm to the next one in my head. Knowing
how a delay breaks the congregation's focus,
I plunged ahead anyway. However, all naive
ay... hopes of everything ironing itself out were
Sheffielt quickly proven totally unfounded. My singing
and strumming weren't jiving together at all.
It was so bad the band couldn't even join in. Heads popped
up all around the sanctuary. I just had to stop.
Still trying to appear in control, I swallowed what felt
like a wad of cotton, and tried again, then again. No better.
Eventually, the service came to a grinding halt. Dead
silence.
I looked to the drummer, but he was ducking behind
the cymbals. In desperation I eyeballed the exits, picturing
myself making a fresh start somewhere else, Mexico
perhaps.
Suddenly, something really wonderful happened. The
congregation began shouting words of encouragement.
"You can do it," they said. "Try again!"
Someone began singing the tune, others joined in. They
laid a pretty good foundation, so I joined in with them. Soon
we were all off and running like nothing ever happened.
A roar of approval resonated throughout the room! Pastor
winked and gave me the thumbs up.


Log Ca6in Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Feb. 12, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was a busy day. Three quilts
were brought in for show. One was put in to be quilted at
home.
Goldie has hemmed our No Name quilt and it turned
out great. Quilts are being started every day, some for the
Fair next year.
We had a day to remember on Tuesday as 45 of us
traveled to Tampa. We had a great bus driver and everyone
had a wonderful time. The weather was great and it was
great to go, and then to get home safe and sound was the
best. We will do it again next year.
A man left'his cap on the bus Tuesday; if he will call me
at 493-2801 I will get it to him.
Greg and six boys were out' Wednesday and did a
great job of putting everything back in place. Thanks,
Lancaster.
Lunch was chicken and rice, beans, biscuits, mixed
vegetables, cheese and macaroni, chicken, okra, potato
salad, eggs, more salads, pound cake, carrot cake, pear
cobbler, fruit, and much more.
Winnelle Home,
Director

Who needs fame or fortune? I still get chills thinking of
how wonderful the Body of Christ can be when we heed
the Apostle Paul's exhortation. Always be humble and
gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for
each other's faults because of your love. Make every effort
to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves
together with peace. Ephesians 4:2-3 NLT
But anyway That was many moons ago. I'm much
more comfortable in my role as a reluctant music minister
now. (Seems I'm still called upon every time a more
qualified director moves off.) I've even learned three
verses to "Amazing Grace"! I've experienced my share of
it too, from the church; every time my brain takes one of
those little siestas.

.Fourth quarter domination

leads Williston past Chiefland


Williston's Deonte Welch (right) and Chiefland's Eugene Carter battle for a
loose ball as Chiefland's Stephen Davis looks on.


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

For three quarters of their District 3-
2A semifinal matchup Friday, Chiefland
stood toe-to-toe with state power Williston,
handling everything the talented Red Devils
could offer and more.
But then came the knockout punch in
the form of a devastating fourth quarter
- leaving no doubt as to who the best
basketball team in Levy County really is.
Williston outscored the Indians 20-1
in the final. period, winning 56-39 before
a capacity crowd in the Chiefland High
School gymnasium. With the victory, the
Red Devils advanced to Saturday's district
title matchup with PK Yonge.
Chiefland's Cantrell Richardson led all
players with 22 points in the game. Three
of those came on a long-distance shot at the
third-quarter buzzer, giving Chiefland a 38-
36 advantage going into the final period.
That shot electrified the Chiefland crowd,
but also gave the Williston team a little
fire as well, said Red Devils coach Dave
Vespignani.
"Richardson hit that three right at the
buzzer, and I think that woke our guys up,"
the coach said. "Their fans started getting
into it, and our kids kind of woke up a little
bit. The effort was better."

Williston began the fourth quarter with
a quick, 12-0 run. Five different players
contributed during that stretch, including
Deonte Welch, who paced Williston with 17
points in the game. Welch converted a steal
into a layup, and then watched as James
Hunt converted another into a slam dunk.
Isaac Floyd made another layup moments
later, and Jacques Edwards nailed a 3-point
shot. Tony James added a free throw to
complete the spurt.
By the time Tommy Sheffield hit one
of two free throws for Chiefland with 4:52
left in the game, Williston had built a 48-39
lead.
The Red Devils made six of seven
free throws down the stretch to win going
away.
Chiefland coach Mark Lundy, whose
team led for most of the game, said the
fourth quarter was a difficult one to watch.
He gave Williston credit for turning up the
pressure on defense.
"They picked up their intensity in the
fourth quarter," he said. "We were not able
to knock down some of the shots that we
had knocked down earlier in the game. We
just could not get that cohesiveness that we
had earlier in the game."
Chiefland gained an early advantage
behind Richardson, who scored half of his
team's first quarter points. That included
the tip-in of a missed shot to begin the
period and two other inside baskets to end
it at 12-6, Chiefland.
Williston countered with Welch, who
hit a 10-footer with 2:25 left in the quarter
and banked in a shot seconds later. Welch
also added a couple of baskets early on in
the second quarter as Williston came back.
The Red Devils gained their first lead of the
game, 23-22, with. 1 minute left in the first
half on a layup by Floyd. Williston added
another layup by Hunt and a short jumper
from Welch to take a 27-24 lead at the
intermission.
Despite being down at the half, Lundy
said his team played perhaps their best
basketball of the season in the opening two
quarters.
"Williston is a well-balanced ball team,
and.they are well-coached," he said. "You
have to play your best game to beat them. I
thought that in the first half we came pretty
close to playing our best game."
Chiefland stayed close throughout the
third quarter and Richardson led the way,
tipping in a shot to begin the period and
launching his big shot to end it. In between,
the Indians got baskets from Eugene Carter
and Reggie McClendon, who sank a 3-
pointer from the right side.
Williston got points from Welch and
Hunt in the quarter, and on a layup from
Raheem Mentor with 1:29 left.
That set the stage for the pivotal fourth
period, which Vespignani said was a perfect
example of what the Red Devils can do
when they take care of business.
"When we do what we are supposed to
do, good things happen," he said. "And in
that fourth quarter, we did what we were
supposed to do."

found an answer for Snodgrass. When
Williston threatened to blow the game
open several times, it was Snodgrass
who would answer with timely shots.
The Red Devils' combination of
Issac Floyd and J. Hunt was equally
devastating to the Blue Wave. Floyd's
quickness and speed to the basket kept
P.K. Yonge on its heels. When they did
manage to slow him down he would
dish to Hunt sliding down the paint
or cruising along the baseline for a
basket. Floyd scored 19 and Hunt 20.
"You had two talented teams that gave
it all they had," Vespignani said.

Bronson loses 57-56 in first round of district


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson High School's varsity boys' basketball team saw its
dreams of a district championship overturned last week by the
Cinderella team of the district playoffs the Branford Buccaneers.
The Eagles lit up the court in the first period and grabbed a 16-4
lead, but Branford closed the gap to 7 at the half and were leading by
3 by the third period, a lead they never gave back.
The Eagles were forced to battle back from a 9-point deficit
with five minutes left in the game. They came within a point of the
Buccaneers, before a missed free throw with 11 seconds left and
failure to score on the final in-bound play with seven seconds left
resulted in the loss.
The Eagles were defeated 57-56.
"It's a shell shocker," said Bronson Coach Aaron Haldeman. "It's
like a bad dream you can't wake up from."
Haldeman said his team should have been ready for the game,
even though they were the heavy favorites. In the- team meeting
before the game, Assistant Coach Brent Walker told a story from
his junior year when Lafayette County upset favored Bronson in the
district finals.
The .Eagles knew the landmine was out there if they weren't
careful.
"We just didn't show up to play," Haldeman said. "We took a big
lead, and it was like we let our foot off the gas. They got going and


all of a sudden they were chipping away at our lead."
Haldeman said the one player who never quit hustling was
Raymie Powers. He said Powers is the type of player who plays hard
whenever he is on the court, regardless of the score.
James Rivers was a powerhouse under the boards. He led Bronson
in scoring with 22 points and dominated the paint on defense.
C.J. King and Kelby Barber came up big in the game, with Barber
aiding Rivers and Enrique Wiseman on the boards and King, the
point guard, guiding the offense smoothly and breaking the press.
It was enough to take a big lead. It was enough to rally in the
closing minutes. But it wasn't enough to win. Branford may have
played its best game of the season. The Buccanneers made few
mistakes.
"They probably played the game of their life last night," Haldeman
said.
The loss was devastating to the Bronson seniors who saw their
final season end in a home court loss they weren't expecting.
"We just weren't focused," Haldeman said. It's like a photograph.
If you're not focused, the picture doesn't turn out."
Scoring for Bronson James Rivers 22, Kelby Barber 11, C.J.
King 9, Enrique Wiseman 8, Virgil Greenlee 2, Rodolfo Contreras 1.
Scoring by periods 17-10-14-15.
