Says state is reducing funding

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

School Superintendent Bob Hastings said Tuesday the state plans to
cut $7 million from the school board budget next year and the spending
reductions could force the elimination of 90 to 100 employee positions.
Speaking to the Williston Rotary Club, Hastings said some of the job
cuts can be handled painlessly through retirements and attrition, but hli
said the balance will have to come from terminations unless the school
district finds ways to cut costs.
SHe said 'the district' has already cut to the bare bone. School sports
programs were reduced in scope this year. Some sports were not funded
In many schools parents of athletes drive their sons and daughters tc
away games to save money. *- :
Hastings said more spending cuts must be made,
"No doubt there will be places we can cut. Every school will have tc
be treated equally," he said.
Hastings. who took office in November during an economic recession,


said 81 percent of the school district budget is in salaries. The only
way to make cuts of that size would be through reductions in pay.
He is hoping the employee union will agree to a 2 percent cut. The
administration would cut its pay by the same amount.
"I need a decrease of 2 percent in salaries across the board," he
X said. "The more concessions I get from the union, the more jobs I
can save."
Hastings said he hates to mention pay cuts at a time when teachers
" are underpaid and overworked. He said Tallahassee continues to
5 require more reporting at the local level, and the extra workload
I falls on administration and instructional staff.
He said a constitutional amendment,approved by voters to reduce
s, class sizes made budget matters worse for the district. The district
. in 2009 has 75 more teachers and 11 more instructional aides than it
did in 2003, despite having about the same number of students.
The state provided additional funding for school districts to hire
those additional teachers and instruction aides, but the Legislature
is taking away the money, he said.
Hastings said his administrative staff hopes-to save 10 to 20

Students in Levy County and all over the state
.of Florida began the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) Tuesday.
The test, which is state mandated, is,
administered to students in grades three through
11,. and includes math and reading for all test-
takers except 11th grade; writing for fourth, eighth
and 10th; science for fifth, eighth and 11th. .
The test is used as a "progressive monitoring
tool to see where our students are," said Chiefland
Middle School Principal Robert Turnipseed.
The curriculum is determined by the state and
the Sunshine State Standards that establish "what
a child should know and be able to do at every
grade level," according to the Florida Department


of Education's FCAT Web site.
Grading is based on a scale from one to
five, Turnipseed said. A score of three and
above is considered proficient. Students who
score below a level three are required to take
remedial and intensive classes for the rest of
the year to make sure they get the help they
need; he said. _- A--


Schools For more on IFAMI
receive an annual
grade based on how well their students perform
on the FCAT, and students' courses (remedial
or advanced) are usually determined by their
performance on the test as well.
The writing portion of the test was
administered in February. Most schools are'
administering reading and math early this
week, with a chance for makeup late in the


school week. Science will be administered
next week for fifth-, eighth- and 1 l -graders.
Teachers and students have prepared for the
test all year long, Turnipseed said.
.On Feb. 23, two weeks before testing
began, Chiefland Middle School held FCAT
Parent Information Night. 'All parents were

FCAT implications
and what they could do to prepare their child

Clerk


says


bill before Legislature could 'un-elect' him


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
When the Florida Legislature convened Tuesday it
faced a major revenue shortfall resulting from the strain
of the economic recession, but one of the money-saving
proposals under consideration by lawmakers could cost
Levy County Clerk of Court Danny Shipp his job.
House Bill 1121 would transfer nearly all the
responsibilities of Shipp to the state court system, leaving
him with a job, but potentially with few employees aind
possibly few official duties other than budget officer for
the Levy County Commission.
If the bill passes as currently written, Shipp said he and
the other court clerks in Florida would be robbed of their
constitutional powers as elected officials. The framers of
the Florida Constitution designated the Clerk of Circuit
Court as the person responsible for protecting public
records and public funds.
But Shipp said the bill seems to ignore the responsibilities
of the clerk set out in the Florida Constitution in an effort
to take the clerk's revenues away. It would give those funds
to the judges of the circuit. He said the bill could have a
devastating impact on his office and employees.
"I am an elected official who just got unelected by the
Legislature," he said.
A summary of the bill on the Internet said it is designed
to "bring more appropriate efficiencies to the administration
of justice" and to eliminate bureaucracy and duplication of
effort by providing .oversight by the Florida Legislature on
court-related services.
The bill would designate up to five judicial districts in
October to have court-related services transferred from
the clerk's office to the state courts' system. Each fiscal
year, five additional districts would see the clerk's services
transferred to the courts.
Bill sponsor Ellyn Setnor Bogdanoff, a state
representative from Collier County, said she doubts
the final version of the bill will, strip clerks of all their
responsibilities. She said that's not the intent. She said
many of the clerk's responsibilities will be transferred to
the judges and their court administrators. Some will remain
with the clerk. She said most of the clerks would continue
to be the controllers of their county.
"They just set their hair on fire and freaked out," she
said.
She believes the bill would bring more transparency and
accountability to the duties currently handled by clerks like
Governor, from Page .A ... .
"To me the biggest concern is money. We're going to
be facing some real tough decisions in the next two years,"
he said.
Asbell said he believes decisions that benefit the students
of the district can be made with the school board working
as a team with the superintendent.
Drew could not be reached for comment.
Asbell is the, owner of Cameron Asbell Insurance. He
is a lifelong Bronson area resident. He was mayor for
five years and received recognition as an outstanding
community leader in the American Hometown Leadership
Award Program sponsored by the National Center for
Small Communities. The town received a $5,000 grant in
his name.
He is a former Bronson FFA Alumni president, former
chairman of the Bronson High School Advisory Council

Shipp. She said the entire court system would be under one
computer system rather than multiple computer systems as
it stands now.
"Right now there's no accountability," she said.
Bogdanoff said she believes the bill could save the
taxpayers up to $200 million annually on a statewide
basis and the savings could be used to overcome budget
shortfalls in the offices of the public defender and state
attorney across the state.
She said the proposed changes will be based on an
economic study currently in -progress. According to
Bogdanoff, part of the reason for the bill was the recession
and her job is to save taxpayers' money, not worry about
jobs in the clerks' offices.
She also noted that the clerk in Collier County gave
$800,000 in bonuses to his employees in 2008, a year when
the state attorney there furloughed employees for nine days
to make up for revenue shortfalls.
Shipp challenged her assertion that his office is not
accountable. He said his office is audited independently
by Davis Monk & Co. annually. The state's Department
of Financial Responsibility and the Florida Department of
Revenue conduct annual audits of child support.
, Shipp said his employees have good reason to worry
about losing their jobs or having their jobs shifted to the
court administrator's office. Court Supervisor Deanna
Dobbins said longtime employees like her, with 20
years experience, wonder if the state would buy out their
leave time and sick time if they went to work for court
administration. Or they wonder if they would have a job
at all.
The clerk's office receives, manages and processes all
court documents. It disburses all court fees, fines and costs,
and provides access to court records. The clerks run the
"business arm" of the local court system and answer to the
public, according to an Internet site published by Sharon
R. Rock, clerk and comptroller of Palm Beach County.
If the judges get control of the clerk's office functions,
Rock said there would be a conflict of interest.
"The very people who make decisions about the life,
liberty and property of people going through the court
system would have control over the records and the revenue
of that system," Rock said. "The clerk is an important check
and balance within the judicial system. Citizens' case files
and court records should not be handled by an employee
of the judges, but by an impartial officer of the court who
answers directly to the public."
Rock said the framers of the Florida Constitution


and a member of the Bronson High school Athletic Booster
Club.
Drew lists her occupation as an event planner from
2006 to the present. She was also an event planner for A
Wedding in Paradise from 1996-2006, and a landscape
contractor for A Growing Concern from 1985-2001.
In October 2006 she was elected to the Yankeetown
Town Council. A month later she was voted vice mayor by
town council members.
Her application to the governor's office said she held
a captain's license with the U.S. Coast Guard in 1996
and was aNotary Public that year. She was a real estate
associate in 2006 and member of the International Society
of Arborists in 2008.
She is the first Yankeetown resident to serve on the Levy
County Commission.

remain.
According to Shipp, the clerks' offices across the state
returned $319 million of excess revenue last year to the
Florida Department of Revenue. He said if the state is short
on money for the court system it should use those funds
instead.of trying to rob the clerk's office of its constitutional
duties and revenues.
Bogdanoff scoffed at Rock's assertion that judges could
not be impartial enough to run the functions of the clerk's
office. She said judges are supposed to be impartial. It's
built into their jobs.
"I think it's presumptuous and arrogant for them to say
they are a check and a balance on the courts," she said.

Crime down in Williston?
Serious crime in Williston went down in 2008,
marking the third consecutive year it has decreased,
according to city police. The police department was
citing Florida Department of Law Enforcement
statistics.
Serious crimes were down 7.3 percent,. violent
crimes 26.9 percent, while non-violent crime went up
by eight-tenths of a percent.
Violent crime in Florida has trended up in recent
years, largely led by Florida's urban centers.
There were no robberies in Williston in 2008 and
only one forcible sex offense.
"Williston achieved these downtrends despite an
abysmal economy and a rising unemployment rate
- two realities many people expect to lead to rising
crime," said Chief Daniel M. Davis.

County. The female resident yelled at Mack and he gave up
chasing the victim. His 1991 Ford truck was found later in a
cemetery in Orange Hill in Williston.
The female victim, who is the wife of Mack's brother,
suffered cuts and bruises on her neck and had some of her hair
pulled out when she was assaulted, said Williston Investigator
James Bond. She will survive. Mack said the female victim
was involved romantically with Mack.
Williston police, in cooperation with Marion. County
authorities, used thermal imagers to search a wooded area
where they thought Mack might be located. They believe he
remains in this area. Anyone with information on his location
or direction of travel is asked to call the. Williston Police
Department at (352) 528-4991.

Williston Elementary teacher instills confidence for FCAT


By Lisa Statham Posteraro
Photo by Cheryl Estevez

With the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test right around the comer, one third-
grade teacher wanted her students to realize they were ready for the FCAT! So she
decorated one of her bulletin boards with the face of a "cat" with these words above it:
"We're not afraid of.a little ole kitty!" Then the students drew their own faces which
came with their own "talking bubble" wherein they could write phrases that expressed
their level of confidence: "Bringit on!" and "It's just like a little quiz."
"This was simply a way to encourage my students to do their best on the FCAT and
not to be afraid of something they have prepared for all year.. .and actually since they
started school at Joyce Bullock Elementary," said Hillary Clubb Cribbs, a first-year
teacher at Williston Elementary.
Since the Florida Legislature has discouraged any type of "pep rally" to get students
psyched about doing their best, Cribbs felt like she wanted to be encouraging without
going overboard.
"I believe our thoughts are very important. Sort of like.'the little engine that could.' If
our students believe they can, then their chances of succeeding are much greater than if
they feel overwhelmed by a test they feel is way over their heads."
On the classroom board, the "daily data" Venn diagram showed that every last one of
Cribbs' students is ready to "shine on the FCAT!" Cribbs expects no test anxiety from
any of her students.
The controversial FCAT evaluates not only how well students have mastered the
Sunshine State Standards in math, reading and science (for fifth-graders), but it also
tests what kind of critical thinkers the students are. Have they developed problem
solving skills so that they can pull one of several,strategies out of their "bag of tricks" to
solve a problem and come up with the correct answer for the multiple choice items? For
the short response with the fourth- and fifth-grade tests, how thoroughly they answer the
questions determines the number of points each answer warrants. And as many teachers
will tell you, following directions is a major part of the FCAT because answers to math
problems sometimes must be placed in a grid a certain way, and the short responses
have parameters; students can't just ramble on endlessly.
FCAT testing lasts from March 10-17 at WES with the 18th and 19th set aside for
make-ups. Parents are encouraged to get their children in bed early, feed them a good
breakfast and get them to school on time.
"We feel confident that our students will excel, and we look forward to a successful
experience throughout the testing," said Principal Cynthia Lewis.

Testing would normally last for two weeks but it's a little bit shorter this year because
the Norm-Referenced Test, a standardized test used to link students nationally, was not
required this year, said Chiefland Elementary School Principal Patrice McCully.
For most students, the FCAT does not affect advancement to the next grade level;
however, third-graders who receive a score of one may be held back. If this happens,
there are sev eral things a student may do in order to be promoted to the fourth grade,

We gave money W

to Palestine


(and other

travesties)

By Rick Burnham
Editor


e just gave $900 million to Palestine.
That's $900 million that could be spent
on any number .
of things in ... ,, .
America schools, hospitals,
infrastructure. You name it.
And yet the powers that be
decided instead to send it to the
Middle East. To Palestine. ,
You know Palestine, right.
They were the folks who were i
out dancing in the streets on
Sept. 12, 2001, a day after
terrorists killed four thousand
Americans in the worst terrorist
attacks our country has ever
known. They were the ones who actually put a terrorist
organization (Hamas) in charge of their country. They are
the ones who have fired 500 rockets into Israel since the
end of their brief war late last year..
No worries though. I am sure the fine folks in Palestine
will use the money in a constructive way to build
schools or hospitals or infrastructure. I am positive that
they will not use the money to buy weapons with which
to attack Israel. Aren't you?
Meanwhile, a handful of people who openly admit
they voted for Barack Obama have said to me that they
are beginning to rethink that decision. In almost every
case, they refer to the massive/colossal/humongous
spending bills that have been introduced by the president
and say things like "I didn't sign up for that" or "That's
not what I voted for" or "Wow I didn't see that
coming."
Weren't there ample warning signs out there to suggest'
he might start doing things like this? Were there not
multitudes of people warning that this sort of thing might
happen? Wasn't there a clear record of Obamahaying
beeneWposed to.egtreme socialist ideals iii his formative
yearsQ Instead of getting caught upri Obanma'Tabilitywte "
speak (actually, to read from a teleprompter), shouldn't
you have, looked at his voting record in the Senate,
where he was routinely regarded as the most far left
representative in the nation?
Shouldn't you have taken a little better look at the
big picture instead of adopting the "what's in it for me"
approach? Shouldn't you have given the most important
election of our time a little more thought?
It is a little late for second thoughts, so please, with
all due respect, each ofyou can keep your "I may have
messed up" comments to yourself.
Man, the coffee is strong this morning.
Maybe I should not have stayed up so late last night
watching the news. I did so because I was mesmerized
over a report that Senator Patrick Leahy of Vermont
wants to introduce legislation that would start a panel to
investigate the administration of former President George
W. Bush for any wrongdoing specifically regarding the
interrogation and close surveillance of possible terrorist
suspects following Sept. 11.
I have lived in Vermont and I am here to say there
is not a more beautiful place to live on the planet. Not
Hawaii, not Tennessee, not California, and-not Florida.
But there are some of the nuttiest human beings you will
ever come across in that state. If there is an opportunity to
look at something absolutely backward, they will find it.
So it does not surprise me at all that a senator from
Vermont would be heading up the effort to turn back the
clock and investigate the events of seven years ago when
the current problems we have are threatening to tear the
country apart. Furthermore, I truly believe that Patrick
Leahy and others like him would far prefer another
devastating terrorist'attack to having the privacy of one
Muslim extremist violated.
But that's the direction the new Socialist Republic of
America is headed in. We'll do all we can to protect the
rights of terrorists and the organizations that mold them
to the point of writing them a check for $900 million.
That will be paid for by raising taxes, yours and
mine. That's the only way, really, to pay for it. Trillion
dollar spending bills, along with the upcoming national
healthcare program that will cost another couple of
trillion, cannot be paid for simply by raising tax rates on
Donald Trump and Warren Buffet.
Some say the Obama administration will simply just
print more money. That, of course, will diminish the value
of the dollar, and inflation will surely take off. If that
happens, the $6-7 a gallon you will pay at the pump will
make the Bush years seem like the good ole days. Want a
Big Mac for lunch? How about an $8 Big Mac?
Bad? Oh no. That's good. The bad would be getting
bombed out of our brains by terrorists being ignored
by Patrick Leahy and BaraCk Obama. The bad would
be Palestine and Iran combining their efforts to nuke
Israel, starting a nuclear holocaust in the Middle East and
beyond. The bad would be coming to the conclusion that
you have been duped in an election long after the cows
have already left the barn.
The bad would be me having another cup of coffee this
morning.


Nature Coast Trail a little 'boogery'at night


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


I've always liked walking at night, but it's becoming
more difficult to do in this modern age where people
with bad intentions also do their night walking and
stalking. People could mistake me for a bad guy.
But I tried a night'walk last Wednesday. I walked on
the Nature Coast Trail from a block south of Park Avenue
to Manatee Springs Road. It was a three-mile round trip,
and largely uneventful. But it was a little 'boogery' a
couple of times.
I started my walk at about 8:20 p.m., well after dark,
knowing full well the trail wasn't lighted. But I took
my wooden walking stick with me and considered it my
security' blanket: It's a.light but sturdy,stick. It coulddo .
n damage, I'm soirrtorsay.' ""
The walk took place on a cool night, so I flipped
my jacket hood over my baseball cap to keep my ears
warm. I soon learned that the jacket hood blocked my
view of what was coming up behind me, and that wasn't
necessarily a good idea for my personal security.
About 10 minutes into the walk a young man riding
a bicycle on the paved trail came up silently behind me.
I didn't see him until he grunted hello as he passed by
me quickly. He chuckled when he saw me jerk. He had
startled me. I'm not sure that was his intent.
The next time I met anyone was on the return trip. It
was amazing how the two young men could have been so
close to me in the darkness and yet were almost invisible.
I didn't notice them until they were about 150 feet away
from me.
As I closed the gap, I wasn't sure the young man
closest to me was going to move out of my way. He was
hogging most of the trail. I began clicking my walking
stick on the pavement as a mild warning. He graciously
moved over and got out of my way. I greeted them as
gentlemen, and they said yes sir, and continued walking.
They were probably teenagers.
Those were the only folks I met on the trail itself.
I saw plenty of pickup trucks, SUVs and cars on the
Chiefland streets that cross the trail. I noticed some of
them slowed down to take a gander at me. Some folks
have excellent night vision. I am always amazed at how
well some people see in the dark. I also see well at night,
but nothing on the order of those folks checking me out
from the vehicles. They obviously had nothing else to do.
It would be nice if the Nature Coast Trail were lighted
along both sides with solar powered lights that glow
brightly in the dark but don't give off an overpowering
light that disturbs neighbors. If the trail were framed with
these lights I think it would make the trail useable for
anyone after dark.


Chiefland is a relatively safe town. Most Levy
County towns are safe. Perhaps I was pushing my luck a
little walking on the trail at night, but at the same time, I
figured what the heck. If I have to carry a gun to be safe
on the trail at night, it's probably not worth walking on
it.
You may see me on the trail at night in the future. I
used to walk on the Chiefland school grounds at night
back in the day when strangers on campus were not
viewed with great suspicion and distrust. Walking on
school grounds may still be an option if the trail doesn't
work out.
One night when I was walking on the school grounds
I made two costly mistakes. I parked my car in a a
shadowy area and left my wallet on front passenger seat.
This was,minI, year ago. Soon h~ a F a4 ud.
heart sank: When I atrived back t *iyW i, discovered
the passenger side window shattered in a thousand
pieces and my wallet missing. A broken brick was
lying on the seat. The wallet turned up the following
day down at Chiefland Shopping Center. The cash was
missing. Lesson learned. I parked under a light after that
and never left my wallet exposed on a seat again.
One of the reasons I like walking at night is the
anonymity. People can't see me in the darkness, or
at last most people can't. Chiefland remains a small
enough town to see the stars in the sky. Light pollution
hasn't destroyed the view. I've seen some unusual sights
in the night sky on cold winter nights above Chiefland.
Those were nights when clouds had disappeared and
I could see into space. I won't go into what I saw. No
point in it. People have a tendency to question what they
haven't seen with their own eyes. I'll leave it at that.
What I saw as I walked along the trail last Wednesday
was a small town about to go sleep. Many homes were
still active. I could see lighted windows. I could hear
Main Street in the distance. It had a few cars and trucks
on it. I walked past Chiefland High School, the new
skateboard park at Delma Locke Community Center and
through Hardeetown.
If the weather had been warm, I suspect the trail
and the town would have been busier. Walking on a
cold winter night isn't for everyone. I was pretty well
bundled up.
But if you happen to see a stranger walking on the
trail late some night, and the stranger has a crooked
walking stick, it's probably yours truly and I'm trying to
be as invisible as possible. Try not to notice me.
Or if you ride silently up behind me on a bicycle,
be compassionate and don't say Boo! If you do startle
me, you may see a bundle of human flesh rocketing
into space, hanging onto a crooked walking stick. And
people with good' night vision will marvel at the sight.


Editor 's Note: The Chiefland Rotary Club donates new
dictionaries to area schools each year in an attempt to
enhance literacy among Levy County 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,
Thanks for the new dictionaries. They help me with
my grades and my parents are proud. They help me
understand words. They help me spell words.

Cheyene Ellis

Dear Rotary Members,
Thank you for the dictionaries. They are cool. So are
you. I hope you have a great Christmas.
I'd like to thank you again. You are very, very cool and


fun. You are trustworthy.

Is Talk Cheap?


MA-kfl) LUUo


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

hey say talk is cheap. But in fact it can be
devastatingly expensive. Among the generation
of Germans who were enthralled by Hitler's
eloquence, millions paid with their lives and
their children's lives for empowering this demagogue to
lead them to ruin and infamy.
Germany before Hitler was one of the more tolerant
nations in Europe. That was what attracted so many
Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe-- tragically, to
their doom.
German immigrants who settled around the world have
been among the more tolerant peoples-- not angels, a
standard that only intellectuals could use, but comparing
favorably with most others.
Do not for one moment think that we are either
intellectually or morally superior to those Germans
who put Hitler in power. We have been saved by our
institutions and our traditions-- the very institutions
and traditions that so many are so busy eroding or
dismantling, whether in classrooms or court rooms or in
the halls of Congress and the White House.
* Talk matters for good reasons as well as bad. Anyone
familiar with the desperate predicament of Britain in
1940, when it stood alone against the Nazi juggernaut that
had smashed whole nations in weeks or even 'days, knows
hlow crucial Winston Churchill's command of the English
language was to sustaining the national will, which was
the margin between survival and annihilation.
SUnfortunately, people on the make seem to have a
keener appreciation of the power of words, as the magic
toad to other power, than do people defending values that
seem to them too obvious to require words.
The expression, "It goes without saying..." is a fatal


trap. Few things go without saying. Some of the most
valuable things in life may go away without saying--
whether loved ones in one's personal life or the freedom
or survival of a nation.
Barack Obama is today's most prominent example of
the power of words. Conversely, the understated patrician
style of country club Republicans is no small part of their
many problems.
It is no accident that by far the most successful
Republican politician of our lifetime-- Ronald Reagan-
- was a man who did not come from that country club
background but someone who was born among the people
and who knew how to.communicate with the people.
Words can shield the most blatant reality. Legislation
to take away workers' rights to a secret ballot, when
deciding whether or not they want to be represented by a
labor union, is called the "Employees' Freedom of Choice
Act."
The merits or demerits of this legislation have seldom
been debated. Who could be against "freedom of choice"?
The Obama administration's new budget, with deficits
that make previous irresponsible deficits look like child's
play, has a cover that says "A New Era of Responsibility."
You want responsibility? He'll give you the word
"responsibility." Why not? It costs nothing.
Some observers are contrasting last week's highly
successful speech by President Obama to Congress
with the lackluster Republican response afterwards by
Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.
People familiar With Governor Jindal have a high
regard for him and many think he'would make a good
president. But Republicans have always had more people
who would make good presidents than people who would
make good presidential candidates. So long as we have a
democracy, that distinction is crucial.
Governor Jindal made a typical Republican mistake


when he began with a "me too" celebration of Obama's
"historic" election. With a very limited time to address
some complex issues, he needed to get right to the point
and sober up such members of the audience as were
capable of being sobered up.
He was, in a sense, defensive, as if he had to establish
that he was a good guy. General Douglas MacArthur gave
a one-word definition of defensive warfare: defeat.
There can be too many words, as well as too few.
Governor Sarah Palin is doing herself no good by
discussing her disastrous interview with Katie Couric.
That does not look presidential, or even senatorial. A
quarterback has to forget the interception he threw last
time, and just make a better throw next time.

Cube-steak Americans vs. the Wagyu-Beef White House


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

aybe thrift isn't dead after all. The Year of the Bottomless Bailout has
yielded a much needed correction in the lives of ordinary Americans.
While fiscal restraint is AWOL in Washington, individual frugality has
ade a cultural comeback. Better, late than never.
Iln lage r a s, aae"c.jtt ingg acJ'Kh 'online Zogby nteiatiofinl'sur've
this week reported t at 70 percent of households are foregoing movies and restaurants.
torty percent of those polled said they were delaying the purchase of major items such
as automobiles, h6me entertainment electronics or a computer; the same percent said
they were giving up vacations. Notably, Reuters pointed out, "nearly 80 percent of
younger adults, aged 18-29, said they have scaled back on going out, compared to 55
percent of people 65 years and older."
Pollster John Zogby called the results "depressing." I beg to differ. Out of necessity, a
consumption-based society is learning to live within its means. For decades, government
policies fueled that insatiable appetite -- and new government programs are desperately
trying to preserve it. But the Obama administration's frantic efforts to encourage more
brainless home buying, car buying and consumer borrowing aren't producing their
desired results. Generational theft, it seems, has a silver lining.
The phenomenon is spreading beyond America's borders. London-based economic
journalist Hamish McRae recently observed: "We may be on the cusp of a big
socioeconomic shift. We have had half a century when the developed world has
gradually moved away from regarding thrift as a virtue. It has moved at different speeds
in different countries, faster in the U.S. and UK than in Germany or China. ... We have
created the institutional structure that has supported this shift: from credit cards to
collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). The world has clearly reached a point where it
can go no further down that road.... The pendulum will swing back. How far and how
fast we cannot tell, but we can be sure that debt will be regarded differently a generation
from now."
President Obama, celebrated by his liberal media admirers for a miraculous ability
to groove with the common man, hasn't yet caught on to the new age of individual
austerity. As always, he talks a good.game of "personal responsibility" and "sacrifice."
But while peniny-pinching Americans head to Sonic Drive-Ins for $1 everyday value
meals or stay at home for cheap cube-steak dinners (sales of the inexpensive meat are
up 10 percent), the White House serves up high-grade Wagyu beef to congressional
revelers. The luxury item was on the, menu for the bipartisan stimulus dinner in January,
and was also served at the governors' dinner hosted'at the White House two weeks ago.


"... the Obama administration's frantic
efforts to encourage more brainless
home buying car-buying and
co-psumer borrowing arenh'tlproduairfngrig
their desired results."

Michelle Malkin


Team Obama's image experts, perhaps hung over from all the Camelot-re-creating
Wednesday cocktail parties that are now a signature of the new administration, have
fallen down on the job. The man who scolded Americans for wasting energy and turning
their thermostats too high still hasn't lowered'his own. "He's from Hawaii, OK?" senior
adviser David Axelrod snickered to The New York Times in January. "He likes it warm.
You could grow orchids in there."
In flyover country, the mood could not be more different. Party time is over. I heard
from a reader in northwest Arkansas, now upside down on her house with two college-
age kids, who is preparing to tighten the family belt..President Obama, meet personal
responsibility:
"We are ultimately responsible for the mess we are in. If my husband and I have to
live in his pickup and get ready for work at the community gym, so be it. If we lose. our
jobs, we will move in with (my husband's) mother, and he will hunt and I will garden.
We have never been on unemployment, welfare or other assistance. We are Americans.
Our ancestors fought in the American Revolution, the Civil War, World War I, World
War II, the Korean War, and his brother fought in Vietnam. Our family has faced
tougher foes than this economy and.Barack Obama. We will do as true Americans do;
we will not whine,' we will persevere."
Waste not, 'want not: Outside of Washington, it's the renewed American way.

The Williston Lions, Harmony Holistic
Healing Center and the Levy County Farmers
and Flea Market would like to thank the
community and press for their support of our first
market. The turnout, especially from the local
community, was overwhelming. Thank you all.
We were blessed to receive donations of glasses,
requests to rent space at future markets and a
great many praises for our efforts to clean up the
old place and use it right away for an activity that
is so beneficial to the community.
Many applications for Harmony-sponsored
produce vouchers were taken. The idea is that
funds brought in from produce vendor booths
will be converted to vouchers to be given back
to residents in need who can then purchase fresh
produce from the market. We will be looking
for other ways to give back to the community as
we grow. WIC vouchers may soon be available
to the community as a result of the new farmers
market.
We are looking forward to helping facilitate
that program as well. We would also like to


thank the Levy County Health Department for
coming out and doing community outreach.
The market has, in its first week, proven to be a
place to reach many throughout the community
and we are encouraging other not-for-profit
organizations to join us in presenting this
activity.
We will now begin to make the market a
weekly activity and in the immediate weeks
will operate every Saturday. We plan to seek
permission from the City of Williston to make
this a permanent fixture to the city and hope
to' bring many produce and other vendors to
the market, along with varieties of fresh local
produce and products that may not always be
available. It is all in an effort to seive this great
community we live in.
The Farmers and Flea Market is hosted at the
Williston Lions Club House, located at 401 S.E.
6th Ave. in Williston every Saturday. We start at
8 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. For information on
the Levy County Farmers and Flea Market, call
Cindy at 486-6229.

City sets rules for recreation facilities

Dale Stone, Jake Kennedy, Zachary Barker, Trevor
Castell and River Lundy celebrate the opportunity
to help the March of Dimes.


CES students support

annual Walk-A-Thon
By Rick Burnham
Editor
Even in tough economic times, support for the March
of Dimes remains strong, according to representatives of
the charity organization.
And where is it the strongest?
"Right here, in north central Florida," said March of
Dimes representative Cherie Sussman. "This program is
considered to be the strongest in the nation."
Chiefland Elementary School almost certainly has
something to do with that, said Sussman. The school is
regularly listed among the most productive in raising
funds for the March of Dimes, Sussman said.
"They are such a great help," she said. "Every single
year they are one of the top schools in the area. In fact,
last year they were the No. 3 school out of 60 schools in
north central Florida. Last year they raised $6,100 and
this year it looks like they will have another solid year
despite the economic conditions."
CES students piled onto the, track Friday and made
their way around multiple times for a "Walk-A-Thon"
in support of March of Dimes initiatives. Older students
laughed and joked as they made tracks; younger ones
scampered about with smiles a mile wide..
Sussman said each student was well aware of the
good they were doing for children suffering from a wide
range of birth defects.
"We do a kickoff a few weeks prior where we go
in and talk with them about how to raise money." she
said.-V'\e' tell them wCho they hiouid as k a r d6hatioins
and why they should help. Then on te day of, we come
in for the walk and talk to them again about why they
should help. Then we will give prizes as sort of a thank
you for all their hard work."
The mission of the March of Dimes is to improve the
health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature
birth, and infant mortality. The organization carries
out the mission through research, community services,
education and advocacy to save babies' lives. March
of Dimes researchers, volunteers, educators, outreach
workers and advocates work together to give all babies
.a fighting chance against the threats to' their health:
prematurity, birth defects, low birthweight.


Chiefland city commissioners Monday adopted an
amended set of rules for city recreational facilities aimed
at avoiding the confusion that led to a conflict with a semi-
professional football team.
The city's ordinances had not defined how certain
organized sports groups could use facilities like Strickland
Park. Under the new ordinance, groups can obtain a permit
for use of the parks.
Along with the revised ordinance, commissioners
approved a 10-year agreement with Chiefland Area Athletic
Association allowing CAAA to continue operating all the
youth sports programs for the city.
The city and CAAA can back out of the agreement with
a month's notice.
On a related subject, the city has decided that. the
concession stand at Strickland Park can only be used by
CAAA. It was not constructed with state grant monies.
There's no requirement to let other groups use it.
However, commissioners did agree to let their- staff
research the cost ofl purchasing a metal concession stand for
use by football and soccer teams. The concession would also
be in the area of the playground.
The city has also agreed to build a lighted practice football
field for the Gulf Coast Panthers.
On a related subject, the city plans to submit an application
for a Florida Forever grant to purchase property adjoining
Strickland Park or Buie Park for additional recreational
space. Purchasing space near Strickland Park would allow
for expansion of youth ball fields.
The question raised by city staff is whether the city would
like to purchase land from a property owner near Buie Park
to expand the park for adult recreational activities. City
commissioners were not ready to make a decision.
Staff was instructed to contact the landowners around
both parks to find out if they are interested in selling their
property, and at what price.
Commissioners voted to select a. site in Chiefland
that would benefit from the next $650,000 Community
Development Block Grant, but asked the news media not to
publish the site. Laurie Copeland, financial project director,
said disclosing the site would give consulting firms bidding
for the right to work for the city on the grant a competitive
advantage if they knew where the money would be spent.
The money would add water and sewer lines and paved
streets to a low income neighborhood of north Chiefland.
In a final matter, Mayor Teal Pomeroy recognized the
Student of the Month recipients.
Christian Salazar, 'son of Tarmm) Kisamore. is -a,
kindergartner at Chiefland Elementary School. His teacher
described him as polite and cooperative with a good attitude
toward school work.
Haley Andrews, daughter of Allen and Dawn Andrews,
was nominated by her eighth-grade teachers because of
her outstanding endeavors in academics, sports, clubs and
relationships. She maintains an A-average in her classes and
plays on the volleyball, basketball and softball teams.
Tyler Johnson, son of Angela and Cracker Johnson, is a
senior at Chiefland High School. His teacher said Tyler has
exceptional academic qualities and always completes his
work in this fashion. He is a mature and dependable student
and has taken all the challenging academic classes Chiefland
has to offer.


Haley Anarews, an eigntn-graaer at unlieTana Miaale
School, accepts her Student of the Month certificate
from Mayor Teal Pomeroy.


Inglis builds new playground behind Town Hall


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor .

The parents.of Inglis will.soon have a new, safe place to
take their children of all ages to play.
A three-age- group playground is in the final stages of
construction behind the Town Hall in Inglis.
Through a $135,000 grant from the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection, Inglis Commissioner Bill
Lake has "spearheaded" the project from conception to
completion, according to outgoing Inglis Mayor Carolyn
Risher.
The playground will have three areas, each designed
for a different age group. The main apparatus is a custom-
designed boat playground for ages 5 through 12. For ages
2 through 5, a basic colorful set is in place; and ages 0
through 2 will be able to play on what's called a "Little
Tikes Tot Tree."
In addition to the new playground, a new pavilion was
added next to the playground, as was a basketball court;
benches and picnic tables will be installed soon. The
community center was also newly renovated.
Along with the $135,000, private businesses and
individuals have donated another $14,000 in order to make
the project a success, Lake said.
. Capital City Bank has donated a strip of land adjacent
to the new park, and Lake currently has another grant in
the works to build an adult recreation and fitness park. He
said there is a good chance Inglis will be given the grant, in
which case it will be complete in about'a year.
"It's been a long process but it's worth it to the
community," Risher said.
Lake, who ran for Inglis Mayor Tuesday, was endorsed
by outgoing Mayor Risher. Risher said Lake has worked
tirelessly on this project, arriving at 5 a.m. and not leaving
until around 7 .p.m. on most days, and working mornings
on the weekends. His dog, Heidi, is a familiar face around
the Town Hall as well.
Heidi donated $500 to the project, Lake said. She even
has a concrete bench with her picture on it.
Risher was the first to go down the slide, albeit illegally,


The playground behind the Inglis Town Hall is currently under construction and set to open at the end of
March or beginning of April. In the background is the newly renovated community center and new pavilion.


Lake said, since the playground is not yet up to code.
He said community children will soon get the opportunity
to take their turns on the playground. A grand opening of
the playground is planned for late March or early April.
Everyone who works at the Town Hall is going to dress
up as pirates and Lake as Captain Hook for the grand
opening.
Lake said he will also be able to fulfill his lifelong dream
of being a hot dog vendor, as a hot dog cart and popcorn
machine have been purchased for the event.


They said they've already received several calls from
parents asking when the playground will open and wanting
to make reservations for birthday parties.
Lake said this isn't the first time he's built a playground,
but it is the most involved and complex playground he's
worked on, but he believes it's all worth it.
"The town of Inglis does not have a real children's park,"
he said. "We have a lot of good kids here and nowhere to
go."
In less than a month, that will change.

Story and photos by Terry Witt

F rontier Florida wasn't exactly a
safe place to live, according to
Dr. Joe Knetsch, who has written
books about the three Seminole
Wars in the state.
Knetsch appeared at the Log Cabin
Quilt Museum Saturday to promote his
most repent book about the Seminole
Wars. The book, titled "Fear & Anxiety
on Florida's Frontier," chronicles what
it was like to live during a time when
entire settlements were being burned by
Seminole warriors.
The Log Cabin Quilt Museum was
founded and is operated by the Log Cabin
Quilters. They were holding one of their
"Pickin on the Porch" outings. Visitors
were treated to bluegrass music, a home-
cooked meal and plenty of local history
inside the museum, which is a log cabin.
Florida became a member of the union
on March 3, 1845. The first Seminole
War was 1817-1818, but Knetsch said
it didn't amount to much more than one
skirmish during a reconnaissance mission
by American soldiers. The three Seminole
Wars took place from 1817 through 1858.
Frontier Florida in the 1830s had a
small military presence. That's because
the only military force of any size had
been eliminated by the Seminoles in an'


ambush at Dade's Battle on Dec. 28, 1835,
according to Knetsch. The Seminoles
used guerrilla warfare to its advantage.
The elimination of the American military,
caused fear and anxiety in the frontier
community, Knetsch said.
Knetsch said very little has been written
about the Seminole Wars. He said he
challenges his students to find what has
been written. They generally come back
with about one paragraph. Both sides in
the war the Seminoles and the American
military were brutal to each other. It's
not a piece of history that many historians
care to write about. But Knetsch enjoys
unearthing the state's early history. He
is an historian for the Division of State
Lands.
He said the American military often
targeted the "bundle carriers," the people
often referred to as "medicine men"
today. They were the carriers of the
Seminole traditions, its cultural history
and medicines. Much of their culture and
tradition was lost when the bundle carriers
were killed. At the same time, he said, the
Seminoles often targeted military officers
leading raids into frontier Florida.
The Seminoles considered Florida
their home and their territory. They were
farmers and traders and were relatively
advanced in both areas of commerce,
according to Knetsch. But the tribe had
. allowedescaped slaves to live:with them.

Knetsch said that was one of the reasons
American soldiers were sent to Florida
- to capture escaped slaves, difficult as
that was.
He said the Seminole Wars were the
most costly Indian wars fought by the
American military, with 1,500 men lost.
Knetsch also noted that the Seminoles
didn't actually have a chief. The
Seminoles were operated by a tribal
council, which he said the American
government never acknowledged.
At the conclusion of his presentation,
Knetsch was introduced to some quilter
history at the museum. The museum
founder, Winnelle Home, showed him
one quilt that was pieced in 1880 by
her grandmother. It was called "54-40
or fight," she said. The name, she said,
came from the fact that the first to reach
the battle line Indians or settlers could
shoot first.
The oldest quilt in the museum was
. made in 1857. It has a harp pattern, which
means the quilter fashioned images of the
musical instrument on the quilt.
Home has another quilt she said was
sewn in 1925 as a fundraiser to build the
first Methodist Church in Bronson. She
said the church was built for $325. The
ladies of the church would embroider a
name on the quilt for a 10-cent donation.
Anyone wishing to visit the Log'Cabin
Quilt Museum can take U.S. 27A from

Morrison carries Bronson to 10-2 district win over Bell


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Pitcher Lucas Morrison carried the Bronson Eagle
varsity baseball team on his shoulders Friday as Bronson
swept past district rival Bell 10-2.
Morrison recorded nine strikeouts and three hits. He
drove in three runs in the bottom of the sixth to seal the
Eagles' victory.
"He just dominated from start to finish," Coach Tom
Pogue said. "We needed that district win bad. We've been
in every game. but we haven't finished."
Bell had beaten Bronson in extra innings the last time
they met in Bell. The Eagles had taken the lead late in that
game, but gave it up.
Bronson is 3-5 overall and 2-4 in the district.
Pogue said he has an excellent defensive team, perhaps
the best in the district, and the pitching is coming along
well. He is hoping the team peaks at districts. That's when
the season starts all over again. Everyone has a shot at being
the district champion and going to the state playoffs.
"I feel like we're in the hunt," Pogue said. "I like our
chances. I like the team."
Morrison served notice early that his fast ball wasn't
going to be easy to see and his.curve ball was a menace.
In the top of the first, he struck out two batters. The third


batter hit a grounder to first base to retire the side.
In the bottom of the first, Tyler Martensen scored when
Kelby Barber reached base on error. The Eagles left two
runners stranded.
In the top of the third, Morrison struck out three batters.
One man reached base with a hit..,
SMartensen scored on a hit by Jake Williams in the
bottom of the third. A hit by Alan Brooks drove home
Barber and Hayden Bedford, giving Bronson a 4-0 lead.
Virgil Greenlee walked with the bases loaded, scoring
Brooks. A force-out at home ended the scoring binge and
left two Bronson runners on base.
Bell scored twice in the top of the fourth to cut into
Bronson's lead.
Martensen scored a run in the bottom of the fourth when
a badly thrown ball whizzed by the Bell third baseman.
Martensen trotted home. The throw from third base was
late.

Chiefland gets much-needed district win over Dixie County


Story and photo by Ryan Butler
Correspondent

After his batters struggled early in the season with
consistency, Chiefland baseball coach Kyle Parnell was
looking for a breakout performance offensively.
The Indians exceeded their coach's expectations in a big
way March 3, forcing the mercy rule on their opponents for
an 11-0 win at Dixie County.
"We swung the bats well." Parnell said. "It was good to see
them come to life."
After being held scoreless in the first two innings, Chiefland
loaded the bases three separate times in the third. The Indians
knocked in five runs during the inning, including two RBIs
each by Jacob Reidy and Bo Beauchamp.
Reidy then added a long two-run home run in the fourth,
which highlighted the team's six-run inning. Those runs,
combined with the five scored in the third, put the visitors in


position to win the game against their district rival early.
It was the pitching and defense that sealed it.
Jeremy Hayes started the game, dominating for three
innings before being relieved by Adam Burton. Neither pitcher
allowed a run, or even a serious offensive threat. In the five
inning game, Dixie County put only four men on base.
"I was proud of the way (Hayes) pitched and how (Burton)
backed him up," Parnell said.
Defensively, the team snuffed out an attempted steal in the
first inning and kept the runner in check on the basepath.
"We were'able to give (the pitchers) some good support
defensively," Parnell said.
Still, it was the Indians' pitchers that proved to be the best
defenders for Chiefland. The Indians needed a strong team
performance after they struggled against Fort White in their
previous district game. The blowout win put CHS at 2-1 in
district 3A-5 for the season's early stages.
"It was a district win we needed," Parnell said.

Opening week racers a mix of pro-hopefuls, teens, dads


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Matt Blum, a 22-year-old High Springs race
car driver, won the premier event Saturday night,
a 25-lap limited sportsman feature.
Taking the checkered flag fit well with his
hopes for the future.
Blum, who has been racing go-carts since he
was old enough to walk, and stock car racing
since he was 16, is a developmental driver for Lee
Faulk Racing and Development.
Faulk lives in North Carolina.
"He has a lot of good ideas. It's exhilarating.
He has an upbeat attitude about everything,"
Blum said.
Blum said he first raced ,stock cars at the
Bronson track. He likes the steep banks that allow
higher speeds.
He had tried to gear his car up for night driving
on the Bronson track Saturday, but discovered he
was still two-tenths of a second behind where he
needed to be. Blum said he decided to replace quite
a few parts on the car to give it the extra boost. It
worked. He shaved two tenths of a second off his
time.
And he won the big race.

13-year-old racer
Seated at the top of the stands was Crystal River
racer Mark Fallows and his 13-year-old daughter
Natalie, a future stock car driver.
Fallows had just raced in one of the early heats.
He was waiting for his turn to race in one of the


final featured events with his car 007. Natalie was
by his side.
Natalie, who is home schooled and races go-
carts to this point, though not competitively, wants
to race cars. Her dad has purchased a Camaro for
her with a V-8 engine.
As they talked to a reporter, Katie Paugh, a 13-
year-old girl from Homosassa, was competing in
her first race at the Bronson track. Paugh completed
her Hornet race. Hornets are cars straight off the
street. They run a figure-eight course where the
speeds are not as high.
Natalie was asked if she was scared to race cars.
She smiled confidently and responded, "no."
Fallows said he realized he wanted to be a race
car driver a couple of years ago when he attended
a stock car race. He decided it was something he
could do. He discovered he loves the speed and
the strategy on the track.
"It happens so quickly, but when you're, out
there it's like everything's .in slow motion. You
can see a guy about to spin out," Fallows said.
He said he won a race when he saw an opening
created by two cars fighting for the lead. He
spurted into the lead. He was hit just before the
finish line. The car was disabled. But racer friends
pushed his car across the finish line for the win.
Fallows said people are excited about the
opening of the Bronson track. The drivers like the
steep banks that allow greater speed.
As for Natalie, her racing days are ahead of
her. Her father is her mentor.
"I can't think, of anything that's more fun,"
Fallows said.


Robbie Cooper and Scott Wilkerson, a local driver, work on getting
Wilkerson's race car ready for Saturday's competition.


Drivers vocal about incident at end of stock car race


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Stock car racing is not a scripted sport.
High powered cars roar around the track jockeying for position.
Spinouts.and crashes are common. Fans love the unexpected.
That's the way it was on opening night at Bronson Speedway and
Motor Sports Track Saturday. It was all part of what fans expected
to see. -
AwBut in one race, tempers and emotions ran hot. One team of racers
'aidls-imeone '61d~have gottedf hirt %when a racer used' his car as a
weapon. >'
But there was more than one side to the-story.
Friction developed early when Larry Welter, Jr. of Williston,
who was leading in one of the late featured events, was hit and spun
around Mike Stalnaker of Ocala. Welter was able to continue racing
despite the damage to his vehicle.
Stalnaker alleges Welter retaliated during parade lap when the
racers aren't racing -- by hitting him when he wasn't expecting it
and causing him to spin out. He said the crash caused about $300
damage. That's a lot of money for a low budget racer.
Stalnaker said track officials didn't want him to press charges, but
he said race cars should not be used as weapons.
Welter told a different story. After getting hit and spun out when
lie had the lead, Welter said he pulled alongside Stalnaker and waved


at him and said "That's enough." He said Stalnaker responded by
trying to take out the front oflWis race car. He responded by spinning
out Stalnaker.
More fireworks occurred when the race was over. When
Stalnaker's father, Jeff, also one of the racers, drove off the track,
he hit the back of Welter's car. Mike Stalnaker said his dad's clutch
was malfunctioning and that's why he couldn't stop. He didn't hit
Welter on purpose.
Welter responded by accelerating backwards into Jeff Stalnaker's
race car, crashing;into.him, at highlpeed. StAnak r was no longer
wearing a seatbelt because the race had concluded:.-Stalnaker jumped
through his car window and pulled offhis helmet. He began walking
in the direction of Welter. Parker met him and calmed him down.
Welter told a different story about the incident. He said Jeff
Sialnaker retaliated against him at the end of the race by ramming
;the back of his race car when he was off the track. He said when he
backed into Jeff Stalnaker, his father, also a racer, hit Stalnaker from
behind.
"Jeff Sr. got squished between me and my dad," Welter said.
"They've done this to me at three different tracks and I'm tired of it."
Welter said the things that happened on the track were mainly
of a competitive nature, but the events at the end of the race "were
uncalled for."
Tony Parker, who operates the track, promised a meeting with
the drivers to sort out what happened.


Speedway, from page 1 B


"I feel good about the notoriety
of the place. People know where
.the track is and they have been
coming here for years," Parker
said. "I really think for the
community to stipport the race
track, the race track is going to
have to support the community."
No alcohol will be sold at the
track, and Parker said no cursing
will 'be allowed. Uniformed law
enforcement officers will be
present.
"We not going, to sell alcohol
or promote alcohol," he. said.
"Somebody said we're probably
the only track in the state that
doesn't allow those activities.
That's okay. We may lose a few
people who want to drink, but I
think we'll gain some fans." .
On Saturday nights, admission
will be $10 for adults, senior
citizens $8 and children under 12
get in free.
The offer to let children under
12 years old get in free had the
desired effect. There were many
children at Saturday night's
opening.
Parker said people liked the
atmosphere on opening night and
they liked his idea about making
the track a place that community
groups, churches or private groups
can feel comfortable using.
Parker operates a land clearing
business and has been talking
for more than a year with Cope
about the possibility of leasing the


speedway. Cope's son Travis is
racing professionally and Parker
says Cope wants to travel with his
son.
Parker has two sons of his
own. They were busy on opening
night attending to the details of
the night's activities. While the
night went well, the tragedy that
is unfolding in Parker's life could
not have been far from his mind.
Parker is a suspended Levy
County commissioner awaiting
federal trial on bribery allegations.
He said he could not discuss the
charges against him, much as
he would like to. But regardless
of what happens, the track will
remain his family's business.
"I do not know what the
outcome of my situation will'be,
but my family will continue to run
this," he said.
Federal law prohibits him
from 'talking about the criminal
allegations against him.
Parker is convinced the mud
bogging area will become a
popular attraction at the track.
He figures it should be finished
in a couple of weeks. For those
who like to compete in such
events, they normally have to go
to unsanctioned areas deep in the
woods.
Parker is also planning to
have racing for go-carts and four-
wheelers. He believes children
will enjoy competing.
"It's important that we focus
on the youth and try to give them
something to do," he said.


It doesn't look like much now, but Tony Parker expects the mud
bogging area to be a popular feature at the speedway. Parker
said it should take about three weeks to complete the work.

techniques in the field.


I recently traveled to Bronson's Cooperative Extension Office to
attend a Vegetable Gardening Workshop led by Anthony Drew, Levy
County Cooperative Extension Agent. The session was packed with
folks from the tri-county area sitting comfortably while viewing the
live telecast instruction on a large movie screen. Four specialists
from the University of Florida presented vegetable gardening basics,
organic gardening, pest management and non-traditional gardening.
The latter included a section on hydroponics. I'd like to try growing
vegetables hydroponically as my garden area is a sand hill.
Anthony Drew presented the drip irrigation and fertigation
demonstration. One man remarked that fertigation (applying
supplemental fertilizer to a crop through the. irrigation system)
interested him as he didn't feel his vegetables got enough fertilizer.
The small dose, applied on or below the soil surface, supplies up to a
daily feeding of minerals for each plant. In order to protect the water
supply from contamination by fertilizers, we learned about specific
parts that must be included in any system used for applying fertilizer.
Nutrients which are applied with water through the system can be
controlled precisely.
During the dry season in humid areas, or arid climates, drip or
micro-irrigation can have a significant effect on quantity and quality
of yield, pest control and harvest timing. Additional advantages
include water savings due to irrigation of a smaller portion of the soil
volume, decreased evaporation from the soil surface and reduction or
elimination of the runoff. Duringdry seasons or in arid climates disease

LCHC raises funds for cancer center


The Levy County Horse- Club sponsored the 8t
Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Benefit Trailride
during Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Goethe State
Forest Tidewater Trailhead. The benefit trailride was
held in conjunction with Florida Forest and Greenways
Trail Awareness Month. LCHC received a letter from
Charles Bronson, commissioner of Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services, stating the Goethe State Forest
was proud to be the host site for such a worthy cause and
looks forward to working with the LCHC on future annual
benefit events. The event brought a lot of community
support. Horse riders from many towns throughout
Florida participated, with the longest travelers coming
in from Tennessee,.
The fundraiser is. held each,,year,, in, ,order to.,give,
the proceeds to the Shands Cancer Center for the
many items and services needed for the local breast
cancer patients. The Breast Cancer Awareness Fund
has provided women in need'with practical kinds of
assistance. For example, the fund supported a homeless
woman who underwent extensive breast cancer surgery
and treatment with medications and transportation. It
was able to assist another woman with dressing supplies
for wound care related to her surgery. It helps patients
with combs, brushes, wigs and other items that funds
aren't readily available to purchase. The fund was also
used to establish the beginnings of an audiotape library.
The audiotapes are used as an adjunct to chemotherapy
and radiation treatments to help women cope with their

Jennifer Mazza Adams for $3,500.. -

treatment related fears and side effects and support
coping.
The 2008 event raised $3,500 to go into the Breast
Cancer Awareness Fund at the Shands Cancer Center.
Jennifer Mazza Adams, clinical social worker, gladly
accepted the check for the fund. If you are aware of
women in need in our community, please refer them to
the Shands Cancer Center.
The next annual event is going to be held at the Goethe
State Forest Tidewater Trailhead on Oct. 24. Place this
weekend date on your calendar and plan on coming out
for a fun-filled weekend for a very worthy benefit.

JONAS BROTHERS: The 3D CONCERT
EXPERIENCE
(Running time: 76 minutes)
Rated G
Starring Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas

Disney brings forth a "recession special" a concert
,in 3D that you can see at the movies for a fraction of the,
!cost of a live concert ticket. The Jonas brothers, ranging in
Sage from 16 to 21, are clean-cut, wildly energetic musical
wonders that sing, dance, and jump around in a frenzy of
fabulous music.
This film adds 3D to the mix to create a real sense of
'being at the concert. The music, loud and lively, makes
you want to dance in your seat. I was surprised that people
were not dancing in the aisles at the theater.
What I loved about this concert is the clean energy of
he boys and their music. It's so delightful to be a witness
to a concert that I would have no problem sending children
to. because there is nothing objectionable going on.
Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, a
"rockumentary," uses backstage footage to make the boys.


VIE CHOICES FOR K
real people and shows adoring fans by the thousands. At
only 76 minutes, it should be a fine movie for children of 8
or older and parents will get a kick out of it, too. The only
sour note was the price. In NYC the theater charged $15
for it however, that still is considerably less than the cost
of a live concert.

PHOEBE IN WONDERLAND
(Running time: 111 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Elle Fanning, Felicity Huffman, Patricia
Clarkson, Bill Pullman

While this movie sets out to explbrethe life of a little girl
who feels different and can't always control her actions,
it's really a darker movie than that.
Phoebe (Fanning) gets into trouble repeatedly for
spitting on children who are harassing her. Her parents
are really cool people, definitely in tune with their two
daughters, loving and accepting. But the troubles become
more frequent and Phoebe's behavior gets more and more


IDS
Phoebe finds refuge on the stage in a production of
Alice in Wonderland directed by Ms. Dodger (Clarkson),
the drama teacher in her school. Only when she's acting is
Phoebe able to tame her demons.
The parents send her to a psychiatrist, then the mother
refuses to believe the doctor. The parents, especially the
mother, are tormented by Phoebe's behavior and their
inability to help or understand her.
In the end, it turns out that Phoebe has Tourette's
Syndrome. While there is much to like about this movie,
the torment suffered by the family and especially Phoebe
as she desperately tries to deal with her disability puts
this film in the "adults only" category. Also, there are
issues between the parents from time to time, especially
the mother who is torn between her desire to write and
her desire to be a super mother. The stupid and unfeeling
principal just adds to the stress of Phoebe in Wonderland.
Phoebe in Wonderland might be distressing or even
boring to children under 13. Even older children may not
relate to the adult issues of dealing with a "different" child
teaching her how to behave enough to get along in. the
world without destroying her individuality and creativity.

OUR FAITH IS THE VICTORY THAT OVERCOMES


A choir of colorful birds fluttered about in, the treetops
along the country road, merrily announcing their approval.
of the new spring;.Tiny brown sparrows rooted about in the
underlying leaves in hopes of a breakfast
morsel. The occasional growl of a dual
exhaust, coupled with the perpetual
cascade of whining tires.nearby, simply
join the symphony; no different than
the gentle rustle of the wind through the. ii
trees, or the incessant chatter of 3oung
red squirrels who frolick about exulting
in the morning sun. Ji'
No, there was not a care in the world i:
along this stretch. Not today; nary a
thought for the morrow, for on a morning
.such as this the complexities of this ,
world could wait, and rightly so. It was i
a time for laughter. It was a moment full _____ ;
of promise. At least it should've been. But Any
Without warning 'the harmony was
broken by a terrible screech, then a With (
savage clap of Crunching metal. Again
arid again it punctuated the startled day until a car finally
rolled to a rest in a smoldering heap, leaving a trail of
shattered glass and passengers strewn in, its wake.
In scant more than a twinkling of an eye, five young
people had been ejected from all normality. A deafening
silence now clamped down upon the morning. Not a stir,
not even a gasp. Somewhere an angel winced.
Over the next few hours, frantic family members
converged upon an emergency trauma center in downtown
Memphis. Here the streets seemed cold, the wail of the
sirens, accepted. People hurried about within, talking in
low murmurs, conscious of the tender sobs echoing down
the dank halls.
The families struggled for information. When it finally
came it seeped in like a dark cloud. One precious life had


been cut short. Three others were in the critical care ward
and only one, although badly banged up, had miraculously
escaped serious injury.
Meanwhile, the cell phone towers
were at full tilt as prayer channels were
activated across the country. News
spread like wild fire. Faithful folks
everywhere took a moment to bow, or
fall to their knees in.response. ,
Our church did in particular. You
see, a couple of the kids in the car
were part of our church family. Their
parents, Tony and Denise, are two of
my very best friends.
After the release of their 16-year-
old Erica, Tony and Denise turned
their full attention to their 20-year-old
son Daniel. He was still in a coma,
ay... suffering severe head trauma. As his
brain continued to swell, his chances
uy Sh ieiC'e didn't look good. Surgery was soon
the only option to relieve the pressure.
Tony and Denise continued to stand in faith. The prayer
warriors behind them only grew more vigilant.
By the grace of God, Daniel made it through one long
day afteranother; each almost a surprise. Oh, what a victory
it was when his color finally returned and 'the swelling
subsided! However, a terrible prognosis still loomed; it
was said if lie ever came to, he would likely never be able
to even feed himself.
The Bible says to everything there is a season, and a
time to every purpose under the heaven. I've personally
never ascended to such heights I could not even begin to
understand why oft times our laughter is so rudely ripped
from our midst. Is it even ours to wonder why? Maybe
sometimes things just collide in this fallen world, especially
with the devil still running wild. I just don't know. I do


know I refuse to be like the devil and blame everything
on God, not when the only rest my burdened soul has ever
found was in the arms of my dear Savior.
When the storms of life come, Jesus is the only one who
can ever truly comfort us. For we know He's been there,
drinking from the cup of our bitterness long before it was
allowed to reach our lips; our travail passing before Him
long before it formed within us.
Jesus stepped down from Heaven so he could identify
with our suffering first-hand; even climbing a hill called
Calvary to get a better view. He became a Man of Sorrows,
acquainted with grief. Yes, our God knows what it's like to
lose a child. Now, we 'can be sure our children are never
more 'found' than when He holds them in His arms.
Jesus warned we'd encounter the fires of tribulation as
long as we walk this big mound of dirt called earth. But
when we look to Him we will find the strength to make
it through. In Him, we find a friend in the flames, a hand
to hold that will lead us to the victory which transcends
this brief journey. Take heart. For the children of God have
a day of rest coming. Today, however, we must continue
to fight the good fight of faith. For whatsoever is born
of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that
overcometh the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 KJV
But anyway Daniel not only came out of that coma,
he went on to stun the nurses at his rehab facility by being
the first one to ever walk out under his own power after
only a month. I hear he's already helping coach a local
baseball team this summer! In fact, he told me that himself
while helping us unload our band equipment at the nursing
home last weekend. Hang in there, folks. If even those
little brown sparrows hold a tender place in God's heart,
how much more do we?

'Life is not fair'


"Life is not fair." Our girls have heard me say it so many
times over their lifetime, that now, after uttering their daily
complaints of "but that's not fair," they finish the sentence
with "I know, Mother; life's not fair."
Today, when they arrive home from school, they're
going to have to remind me of my teachings because today,
Barbie turns 50 and it just ain't fair.
It was on this day, in 1959, that she was first introduced
to the world at The American International Toy Fair in
New York City. She was sporting a perky blonde ponytail,
wearing a black and white bathing suit on her perfectly
proportioned body.
Fifty years later, to the utter delight of Ken, the bod is
the same. Let us just say that my husband is not particularly
delighted with mine a short 21 years later. It just ain't'
fair.
Barbie has been many different characters since she
first came into our lives, radically changing the way we
girls viewed ourselves and our clothes. She is absolutely
flawless and so are her outfits, many having been created
by such famous fashion designers as Gucci, Calvin Klein
and Versace, while a vast majority of mine have been
created by such well-known fashion gurus the likes of Sam
Walton or F. Dollar.
Hers are made of the most exquisite materials, often
bedazzled with jewels and sequins and, of course, they all
fit like a glove. (a very, very tight glove, I might add.) I'm
lucky to get 100% cotton, plus I pray continually that a
sack of potatoes doesn't immediately come to mind when
I enter a room. It just ain't fair.
Of course, it doesn't matter how many clothes you have
for Barbie, she is going to end up naked on the living room
floor, as any parent will tell you.


At one time, I think our daughters owned about 60 of
them, every one having her own special outfit with all of
the adorable accessories. (Now one of our cats is obsessed
with those accessories and takes great pleasure in batting
them down the stairs in the dead of night.)
We went through a period of several years when most
of our relatives gave the girls Barbies for Christmas and
birthdays. We were just as guilty, not'being able to resist
the Georgia Bulldog cheerleader doll or any of the ones that
came out for Valentine's Day. Well, as anyone knows, the
first thing you do when you get a new Barbie is to change
their clothes. Hence, naked dolls everywhere.
Even my husband can attest to this fascinating fact. I
remember one day he received a phone call from an old
duck hunting buddy from here in Levy County. The friend
asked what he was up to and my husband replied,. "Playing
with Barbies." There was dead silence on the other end of
the line. The friend is the father of one son, no daughters.
I guess my dearest could have at least said that he was
playing with Ken, but there was one small problem at that
time: We only had one Ken with all of those Barbies and
l'e was in constant demand. I heard my husband mutter,
"It just ain't fair."
Once, our eldest daughter had Ken masquerade as Julius
Caesar in a video production for English Lit class. She
taped the photo-copied face ofol' Julius to Ken's body, and,
none was the wiser, not even Brutus.
But returning to Barbie, I cannot think of another
person, real or otherwise, who has played as many roles
as this lovely doll, a few being that of Cinderella, Sleeping
Beauty, Mary Poppins, Dorothy, the Good Witch, the
Wicked Witch and even Tippi Hedren's part in Hitchcock's
The Birds, complete with frenetic fowl hanging onto her

Tax Facts About Capital Gains and Losses
1. Almost everything you own and use for personal purposes, pleasure or investment is a
capital asset.
2.When you sell a capital asset, the difference between the amount you sell it for and your
basis, which is usually what you paid for it, is a capital gain or a capital loss.
3.You must report all capital gain.
4. You may deduct capital losses only on investment property, not on property held for
personal use.
5. Capital pains and losses are classified as long-term or short-term,depending on how long
you hold the property before you sell it. If you hold it more than one year, your capital gain or
loss is long-term. If you hold it one year or less, your capital gain or loss is short-term.
6. Net capital gain is the amount by which your net long-term capital gain is more than your
net short-term capital loss.
7.The tax rates that apply to net capital gain are generally lower than the tax rates that apply
to other income and are called the maximum capital gains rates. For 2008, the maximum
capital gains rates are 1%, 15%, 25% or 28%.
8. If your capital losses exceed your capital gains, the excess can be deducted on your tax
return, up to an annual limit of $3,000 (1,500 if you are married filing separately).
9. If your total net capital loss is more than the yearly limit on capital loss deductions, you can
carry over the unused part to the next year and treat it as if you incurred it in the next year.
10. Capital gains and losses are reported on Schedule D, capital gains and losses, and then
transferred to line 13 of form 1040.

Good pitching and solid defense can
make for a very good fast-pitch softball
team. Throw in timely hitting, you have the,
potential for something special.
Chiefland got all three- March 5 against
visiting PK Yonge, winning 3-0 and handing
the Blue Wave its first loss of the season.
Brittany Davis went the distance for the
Indians. striking out five while allowing
only one hit a sixth-inning double. But it
may have been the first inning that set the
tone for the game. .
Blue Wave sisters Brittany and Sara'
Hendrix both drew walks and both stole
bases t6 put runners"at secondhand third
with nobody out. But Davis quickly settled
down, striking out the heart of the PK Yonge
lineup including towering first baseman
Alex Nieland to get out of the jam.
Afterward, Davis spoke of wanting
Chiefland to join the class of elite teams in
the area.
"I want us to be known as the team to

beat," she said. "Everybody '-looks at PK
Yonge as the team to beat. I want Chiefland
in that category this year. So it was a matter
of concentration and determination."
PK Yonge coach Paul Silverman said
Davis was a key factor in the entire game
- not just the first inning.
"She did a great job of keeping us off
balance the whole game," he said. "We
were just not able to hit. We were not able
to put the bat on the ball. We are generally
a good hitting team we average 10 runs
a game. But we just could not hit the ball
hard today, and you have to give her credit
for that."
With Davis on her game, the Indians'
needed little offensive support. They got
all they would need with a single run in
the bottom of the third. Amber Richardson
lined a shot up the middle to score Lyndsey
Stalvey, who had reached base on0 a walk
earlier in the inning. Chiefland added a
second run, an inning later, when Christian
Trail reached base on a hit and eventually
came around to score on a wild pitch by PK
Yonge's Taylor White.


The Indians added their final run in the
bottom of the sixth inning. Kaylee Ecker
walked to begin the inning and advanced
to third on a hit by Rebekkah Wilkerson.
Two batters later, Aimee Biehl drove
home Ecker with a clean single to right
field
Halfan inninglater.left-fielderLyndsey
Stalvey made an outstanding shoestring
catch, and Davis induced Jessica Nathan
to ground out to. third base to end the
game. Chiefland improved its record to 7-
1 on the season, while the Blue Wave fell
to 8-1 with the loss. Chiefland head coach
Wayne Weatherford was all smiles about
his team's performance, adding that there
is perhaps something special about the
2009 Lady Indians.
"We knew that it was going to be a,
close game, and we knew we could beat
them if we played well defensively. That
is what we did," he said. "This group of
girls is so different than the ones I have
had in the past. It seems like when one is
down the other ones pick her up. They all
pick each other up."

Williston beats Fort White, then Crescent City


By Rick Burnham
Editor

It was a good week, to say the least, for the Williston Red Devils'
baseball team.
Having knocked off Fort White 5-1 on Friday, Williston
pummeled Crescent City 11-1 on Saturday, scoring eight times in
the first and. cruising from there.
William Colina threw four plus innings against Fort White, the
first three of which were perfect.. Derek Milam closed the game out
with two and two-thirds innings of relief, striking out five of the
final eight batters. Milam struck out all three Fort White hitters in
the seventh inning.
On offense, the Red Devils got contributions from a number of
players, including Lawrence Jones, who led offthe third with a single
and scored on a triple by Milam. Max White then laced a double-
scoring Milam, giving the visiting Red Devils a 2-0 cushion.


Williston got two more in the fourth inning. Chris Morrow
singled and Damon Ming walked. Charlie Hilton then got a base
hit to score both runners. Williston head coach Jim Smith praised
Hilton for solid hitting, not just in the Fort White game, but all week
long.
"He is swinging the bat real well," the coach said. "He had four
doubles during the week."
Milam scored Williston's final run in the seventh, leading off
with a single and stealing second. Pinch runner Garrett Griffith
eventually came home on a passed ball.
Smith had words of praise for the pitching of Colina and Milam.
"Combined, they walked one and struck out 11," he said. "That is
the kind of pitching we have to have. We also played error-free ball
all week. We made the routine plays and threw strikes."
The Red Devils, 4-1 in the district and 7-2 overall, travel to PK
Yonge (6-2) on Friday.


From the dugout
with Brittany Davis
Wow, what a week! We went 2-2 for
the week again. We have practice Monday
to get us ready .for Tuesday's game at
Newberry. Amber started on the mound
and the defense really didn't see a lot of
action. As in the other, Newberry -game;
we put several runs on the board without
swinging the bat as much. We won 17-1.
Wednesday at practice we were getting
ourselves ready for the dreadedBlue Wave.
We worked solidly on defense, because
we figured them to be a hard-hitting team.
Thursday we hosted PK Yonge, and I
got the start on the mound and pitched a
complete game two-hit shutout. The work
practicing defense really paid off. There
were very few mistakes and when there
were, we quickly made upfor them. Our
bats were coming around as well. All
in all, Thursday the Lady Indians were
unstoppable! We pulled off a huge district
win over undefeated PK Yonge, 3-0!
