Commission says no to n


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Faced with fierce community opposition,
Levy County planning commissioners voted
5-0 Monday night to recommend denial of
permit that would allow operation of a 68.8
acre limestone mine in a horse farming area
south of Williston. ,
Residents said they were concerned
about, the effects of blasting limestone on
their homes, barns and domestic animals,
the potential contamination. of their
drinking water supplies and the degradation
of their quality of life in the quiet farming
community.
Three thoroughbred horse farms operate
in the vicinity of the proposed mine site off
U.S. 41 south of Williston.

Henderson speaks of cancer
"If you are a cancer survivor you have a story to tell," he said.
But Henderson said cancer survivors share a common thread.
He said people think it's a disease that happens to someone else until
their doctor informs them that they have it. He said he hadn't been sick or
feeling bad '\ hen his doctor gave him the news; '
"The \\ord cancer spreads fear in you," he said. The word cancer
spreads fear in everyone when there is a growing realization that it is a
deadly disease."
A second common thread is the determination to live.
"Once we get over the initial 'fear, we figure out how to beat it," he
said.
Henderson said he, relies heavily on the Lord, and the knowledge that
the living God in heaven loves him.
, He said he and his wife Faye never took pills before he was diagnosed
'with cancer. They were healthy. They didn't even take aspirin. But now he
takes a handful of pills in the morning and at night. He gets a shot every
three months.
See Relay, Page 16A


Residents said the landscape, the
wildlife and the view from their homes
would forever be changed by the addition
of a limestone mine.
S"I don't think I want to wake up to
blasting at my front door," said Donald
Michael, who lives within 100 feet of the
property line.
The board's recommendation will go
to the Levy County Commission. The
county commission is not bound by the
recommendations of the county advisory
board and has final authority on whether to
grant a conditional use permit.

for Levy students

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editdr

Some much-needed. good news came last week
for the Levy County school system.
Preliminary FCAT writing scores were released
last week, and on average Levy County schools, as
well as schools across the state of Florida, fared
much better this year than in 2008. The test was
administered Feb,. 10 to all fourth-, eighth- and
tenth-graders.
"A greater number of students are waiting at or
above grade level than ever before," according to a
Department of Education press release.
Grade level is considered a score of 3.5 on the
FCAT writing test. In 2008, 67 percent of Levy
County students earned a score of 3.5 or higher,
compared to 83 percent this year.
School Board of Levy County Superintendent

Annual Williston art festival promotes local artists
Story and photo by Anna Suggs -,', ... .' .
Assistant Editor ,. *, '. .. ,, .


For the 29t year, Williston residents had the chance to
enjoy art and entertainment by local and regional artists
and performers.
The Williston Regional Art Promotion was held
Saturday at the Williston Woman's Club between 9 a.m.
and 5 p.m. The Williston Woman's Club and the Junior
Woman's Club took over the event that was the Williston
Arts and Crafts Fair two years ago.
The inside of the Woman's Club was set up like a
museum, with booths for each artist to showcase their
framed artwork. Outside on the lawn, other artists had tents
and booths to sell jewelry, pottery, woodcarving, prints,
and glasswork.
Kaye McGlothin, Williston Woman's Club member and
chairwoman of the WRAP committee, said there were two
concepts considered when planning the art promotion.
The outside was reserved for food and fun, while the
inside was used as the proper setting for a tasteful art
exhibit.
She said when the Woman's Club took over the event

last year, 'they decided to increase the standards of the
vendors, in an attempt to display classy artwork and well
represent Williston's art community.
"I wanted to provide a proper setting for the art," she
said. "I wanted the excitement to be there, the prestige. I
wanted to give it the respect."
Although most of the crafty knick knacks and doodads
were eliminated, McGlothin said in keeping with the
concept of art promotion. and considering the state of the
economy, the cap on how much money could be charged
for a piece of artwork was $350 the highest amount a
painting was sold for last year.
Despite sales being higher last year, she said there was
a steady stream of buyers.
Glory Ingram moved to Williston from St. Cloud less
than a year ago and had a display of her oil and acrylic
paintings inside the Woman's Club. A self-taught painter,
this was her first time participating in an art show. By early


afternoon, she had sold four paintings, the most expensive
bringing in $150.
Ingram, a self-described "nature person," displayed
colorful, serene paintings of animals and scenery.
She said she was very pleased with the results of the
show, although she didn't participate just to sell her work.
"My main purpose was to meet people and new artists,"
she said. "I met a lot of nice people. I love Williston."
There were also several groups performing for the
attendees' entertainment, including the Marion County
Sheriff's Pipes and Drums, the Williston School of Dance,
the Strings 'n' Things band, a magician, a clown, and
more.
McGlothin said she was very pleased with how the
event turned out.
"To me, art is so exciting and I want people in the
community to be exposed to good art and get the enjoyment
from it."

'Team Levy' looks to put planning into county's future


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

The potential for a new hospital, a new college campus
and twin nuclear plants has many in Levy County excited
about the future in terms of growth and economic prosperity.
But along with the increased optimism comes real concerns
about the proper planning needed to ensure responsible
growth, as opposed to out-of-control expansion.
The organizers of Team Levy are working to ensure
that planning takes place. And they would like the local
populace to participate.
Team Levy is a group of community officials designed
to. establish milestones and energize the community in
sound planning initiatives. The group was developed in
order to "provide a forum where people can explore the
future, ensure economic opportunity, protect what matters
most, and learn by accessing key trends and experts,"
according to its website. It was formed in mid 2008 and
has held three meetings since then in October, December
and in March.
Amanda Douglas, executive director of both the Nature
Coast Business Development Council and Levy County's
Enterprise Zone Development Agency, said planning and
strategic preparation are keys to a successful future for
all of Levy County, whether you are talking about small
businesses or corporate America.
"The ripple effect on small businesses that is happening
because of projects like Progress Energy's nuclear power
plant because more small businesses are becoming aware
that we are here is something Team Levy can help us
manage," she said.
The group's next meeting begins at 2:30 p.m. May 14 in
the Bronson Middle High School auditorium and will focus
on transportation, transit and supply chain issues. Among the
guest speakers scheduled for the session, entitled "Moving
People, Goods and Services," are Jim Ely, executive director-
and CEO of Florida's Turnpike Enterprise and John Kaliski,
,principal, Cambridge Systematics, Inc.
Carol McQueen, chair of the Nature Coast Business


Development Board, said Team Levy is fortunate to have
nationally-recognized experts speak at the session. She
added that now is the time to beef up planning to ensure the
county's future continues to look bright.
"Mr. Kaliski has played an important role in the Florida
Department of Transportation's Strategic Intermodal System
discussions- and is a highly regarded commentator on
regionalism in Florida," she said. "Mr. Ely not only directs
Florida's Turnpike System that serves virtually every comer
of the state, but is a primary leader in contingency planning
and using data to make the best decisions about travel and
transport.
"Levy County is in a special position. We can anticipate
a number of projects in the near future, share our aspirations
with people from all sectors and parts of he community, and
tap into expert leaders."
Douglas. added that the meeting is a prime opportunity
for local citizens to voice their concerns and opinions on the
future of Levy County.
"We want everyone to know how vital their voice is, and
how important it is that our community protects its heritage,
but takes advantage of opportunities for growth," she said.
"It is just a good investment, no matter how you look at it, to
be a part of something like this."
Douglas said the meeting will be videotaped and
presented to local municipalities and development agencies
in and around the state as evidence of the important work
being done in Levy County.
"CLM Workforce Connection is sponsoring a video," she
said. "It will be a 3-5 minute infomercial about what Team
Levy is. We'll take that video to all the cities, chambers and
rotaries, and continue to update people. We will also take
it to Enterprise Florida's stakeholder council meetings and
show the state what we are-doing to prepare for growth, how
the recession is affecting us, and how we are being insulated
from it because we are planning and being responsible with
what we are being given."
A similar session in March focused on information and
land use, while a session planned forAug. 13 will concentrate
on target industries and jobs of the future. A fourth 2009


Amanaa uouglas or leam Levy says the county's
future success may depend on advanced planning.
session, tentatively scheduled for Nov. 12, will focus on
resources and priority-setting.
Don Upton, President of Fairfield Index, Inc. moderates
Team Levy sessions and will raise a number of critical
questions for participant consideration. The May 14 meeting
is expected to lasttwo and a half hours.


Progress Energy announces delay in nuclear power plant operations


By Terry'Witt
Staff Writer

Progress Energy Florida announced
plans Friday to delay the. scheduled start
of operations for its Levy County nuclear
power plant by 20 months.
The first of the twin nuclear reactors at
the site would begin operating in the 2018
time frame under the revised schedule,
rather than 2016 as originally planned. The
site is about five miles north of Inglis east
of U.S. 19.
PEF officials also said they are seeking
approval from the Florida Public Service
Commission to lower the nuclear cost
recovery charge customers would pay. The
state allows the company to recover its
nuclear power plant construction costs in
advance.
The company remains committed to the

FCAT, from Page 1A


construction of two nuclear reactors at a
forested site, spokeswoman Suzanne Grant
said. She said nuclear power is part of the
company's balanced approach to electricity
generation.
PEF changed its Levy County nuclear
project operation schedule after learning the
federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission
had determined that the excavation and
foundation preparation work for the plant
could not be completed while the company
was seeking its combined operating license
(COL). The company expects to receive
the COL late in 2011 or 2012. The COL
grants the utility permission'to build a new
nuclear plant.
"The Levy County nuclear project
remains one of our company's top priorities,
and we are committed to pursuing state-
of-the-art nuclear- facilities in Florida,
especially given the stronrig public policy


support for nuclear energy at the state
level," said Jeff Lyash, president and CEO
of Progress Energy Florida. "Shifting
this portion of the work until we have the
combined operating license in hand enables
us to spread some of the costs over a long,
period. We believe this is in the best interests
of our customers particularly during this
continuing economic slowdown."
In its nuclear cost-recovery filing with
the state Public Service Commission,
Progress Energy is proposing a five-year
plan to reduce the nuclear recovery charge'
to customers. In the first year of the plan,
in 2010, residential customers would
be charged $6.69 per month per 1,000
kilowatt hours instead of the $12.63 .per
1,000 kilowatt hours allowed by current
law. Customer costs for the final four years
of the plan have not been determined.
The costs are associated with building


the new Levy nuclear plant as well as
;upgrading the Crystal River nuclear power
plant -to increase its gross output from
900 megawatts and 1,080 megawatts. The
Crystal River upgrade accounts for 30 cents
ofthe:requested amount. ThePSC will hold
public hearings in September on PEF's
nuclear cost recovery proposal. A decision
is expected in October.
In October, the PSC is expected to make
decisions on the company's 2010 base
rates, which make up one-third of a typical
residential customer's monthly bill. The
company will file its projected fuel costs for
2010 in September. Fuel represents nearly
half of a customer's bill. Utilities earn no
profit on fuel.
PEF is a subsidiary of Progress Energy
and provides electricity and related services
to more than 1.6 million customers in
Florida.


percent increase over last year's numbers.
Allen credits the school's success to the hard work
by students, teachers and parents.
"We were expecting a change," she said.
This year the school targeted students at risk of low
scores and guided them through remedial classes, she
said. Extra one-on-one tutoring was done. Teachers had
students in their classrooms even during their planning
period.
The Continuous Improvement Model, in which
teachers in each grade level meet weekly to discuss
how to fine-tune student and classroom improvement,
was also a huge contribution to the school's success,
she said.
Across the state and in Levy County, the average
proficiency score increased in all grades except 10th.
In Levy County, fourth grade scores jumped from-67
percent scoring a 3.5 or higher last year to 83 percent
-this year. Eighth grade increased from 77 percent to
88 percent in 2009. Tenth grade Levy County student
scores decreased from 76 percent scoring a 3.5 to 61
percent. Chiefland High School is the only high school
in Levy County to have their 10th grade students' scores
increase over the previous year. Preliminary data
reveals the proficiency percentage scores increased
from 73 percent last year to 78 percent this year.
Teachers and students worked very hard for these
scores, said Matt McLelland, assistant principal of
Chiefland High School.
"We couldn't be more happy with how the scores
came out," McLelland said.
Writing is a focus for the students every day, not
just in Language Arts classes, he said.
The 11th grade English teacher, Jan Flemming,
conducted a three-day workshop with the 10th graders
one week prior to the test day, which helped out quite
a bit, he said.
"Our English department is fantastic; they all w rked


very diligently," he said.
Overall school grades are based on the number
of students who earned a score of 3 or above on'the'
FCAT.
Williston Elementary School experienced a leap of
16 percentage points this year for fourth-grade students
who scored 3 or above on the FCAT writing test.
Alice Harrell, the assistant principal of Williston
Elementary School, credits the school's success to the
preparation made last year for the third graders coming
into fourth grade, as well as the time spent tutoring.

There was a time when the Chiefland
Watermelon Festival attracted thousands
if not tens of thousands of people from
around the region, providing a slice of Levy
County for visitors young and old.
Having grown up inthe local area, Melanie
Hutchinson and Karen Tillis remember
those days. And they, along with the other
members of the Chiefland Woman's Club,
would like to see them return.
Hutchinson and Tillis met with the
Chiefland Rotary Club April 29 to discuss
this year's festival, specifically discussing
finances and how the struggling economy
is affecting this year's bottom line.
Increasingly, Tillis told the Rotary, there is
a fear that 2009 may not be a banner year.

for 2009. So I am a little nervous that we
are in trouble of not breaking even, if you
can see the dollars four weeks out."
Tillis told Rotary members that income
from the '08 festival was $13,700, and that
the event cost about $6,800 to put on.
"That left us with about $6,900 to do
service in the area, including Hospice and
helping local families," she said. "We also


set aside $5,000 for the following year."
Tillis said that the Woman's Club has
invested $3,000 of that for a television
advertisement aimed at bringing guests to
the festival from outside the local area.
"We are running that advertisement
in an attempt to get people from beyond
Chiefland and the Tri-County area," she
said. "So if we take that off the $5,000, it
leaves us $2,000 to run a festival that cost
$6,800 last year."
The local community can help out in a
number of ways, Tillis added, most notably
through monetary support.
"We are very aware of the economy
and the pressure on the businesses in
this community," she said. "Between the
Suwannee River Fair, scholarships, your
fishing tournament, and other different
things that happen, we realize that you guys
are-hit hard as business leaders for money.
If it wasn't something we felt like was not
such a strong tradition for this area, and
if the economy wasn't the way that it is, I
don't think that We would be standing here
today asking another service organization
to help us out."
Businesses and individuals in the
community can also help out in other ways,
Tillis said. For example, the Woman's
Club needs volunteers to cut watermelons
throughout the day.
"Anyone who would like to come cut

watermelons, we can use some manpower,"
she said. "I'think that most people who
participated in that last year enjoyed it. But it
.is a lot of work. And when you only have 16
Woman's Club members, you really don't
have enough women to cut watermelon,
work the parade, workwith vendors, and
tear everything down on that day."
Regardless of how people contribute
to the Chiefland Watermelon Festival,
Hutchinson said, the rewards will be well


worth the effort.
"I can remember that this was a very
big event," she said. "Back in the '80s
we could boast that we would have about*
10,000 guests that would come through.
Karen and I and a few other 'youngerish'
women decided to get involved in the
festival, to get it back to where it was at
one time. We want to increase it, to make
it a very family friendly thing. We want to
encourage everyone to come and enjoy it."


Scrub fire bums over 200 acres in Levy County


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

A fire in the Cedar Key Scrub had Levy County
fire departments and the Division of Forestry working
overtime last week.
Aburn conducted by the Department ofEnvironmental
Protection April 29 got out of control after the test
fire was picked up by the wind, said Jerry R. -Horton,
senior forest ranger with the Division of Forestry.
Approximately 210 acres burned between Shell Mound
Road and County Road 347.
"They were doing everything right," Horton said.
Sometimes weather doesn't turn out exactly like it's
predicted, he said.
"The weather at that time was so erratic, it pushed
that test fire out of the block and it just took off," Horton
said.
There were about 40-50 people working on the fire
from fire departments in Chiefland, Bronson, Rosewood
and Cedar Key. There were also workers from the
Department of Environmental Protection, the Division
of Forestry, Central Florida Electric Cooperative and
the Levy County Sheriff's Office.'
A helicopter from the Ocala Division of Forestry
fought the fire from the air, dropping 300 gallons of
water during each of the approximately 80 trips made
that day, he said.
Firefighters were dispatched to the fire around noon.
It was "contained" but not out by 7 p.m., and the next
two to three days were spent monitoring.
Although there was always the danger, luckily no
houses had to be evacuated.
Horton said what posed the biggest risk for the
nearby houses we're the "fuels" surrounding the houses,
including shrubbery and palmetto.
With the threat of fire always a possibility, people

need to keep their homes "fire wise," he said. Make
sure to keep a buffer of at least 30 feet around the
house clean of shrubbery and brush that could easily
catch fire.
"The main thing people need to realize is that even
though we've gotten a lot of rain, it's still really dry,"
,he said.
The dryness proved itself again when over the
weekend, a 255-acre fire sprang up in Gilchrist County


that required more assistance.
"As soon as we kind of caught our breath, we got
called to Gilchrist County," Horton said.
The teamwork demonstrated by all those involved
ensured the fires were handled and everyone kept safe,
he stated. The fire departments, Division of Forestry,
sheriff's department, and Department of Environmental
Protection all worked hand-in-hand to control the
situations, according to Horton.


Citrus officials to build LARC facility in Chiefland


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Key Training Center in Citrus
County is investing $1.5 million to buy
property in the downtown Chiefland
business district and build a 15,000-
square-foot thrift store for use by the Levy
Association of Retarded Citizens.
Dr. BillMartin, aChiefland Orthodontist,
is selling land to the Key Training Center
for for the thrift store. The non-profit store
will be built between the Chiefland Dry
Cleaners and an office park developed by
Martin at the corner of N.W. 4t Avenue
and U.S. 19.
Martin said the thrift store property
will encompass an old gas station on U.S.
19, the adjoining Tremblay boat works


property and the land all the way back to
builder John Hart's property. Chiefland
city commissioners last week closed N. W
1st Street to make room for the store.
Commissioners also rezoned the
property from residential to commercial.
The plan is for the Key Training Center
to use its resources to build and open the
center. LARC will lease the facility and
operate it.
"By the time you add in the cost of the
property you're looking at $1.5 million,"
said Melissa Walker, spokeswoman
for the Key Training Center. LARC's
administrative offices will be in the store.
The thrift store will help support LARC's
workshop in Otter Creek.
Walker said the thrift store will be
vocationally based. It will help the bottom


line of the cash-strapped LARC in Otter
Creek. LARC has reduced operations in
Otter Creek to four days a week.
Martin, who sits on LARC's board,
said he has been working with Chet Cole,
executive director of the successful Key
Training Center, on building a thrift store
in Chiefland.
"They're essentially lending LARC
their business skills and resources," Martin
said. "LARC is in desperate need of some
type of income stream."
The new thrift store in Chiefland will be
modeled after the Key Training Center's,
three thrift stores in Citrus County. The
thrift stores in Citrus County supplement
the operation of the Key Training Center
for retarded adults.
Walker said the Chiefland thrift store


will be designed to look much like the
office park buildings Martin owns next
door. She said there is talk about adding
a fountain out front and a place where
people can sit to chat.
"We're really working hand in hand
with the Chiefland ARC to make a facility
the community will be proud of," Walker
said.
The downturn in the state economy has
closed more than one ARC (Association of
Retarded Citizens) in the state, but Walker
said the thrift stores in Citrus County have
provided a way "to ride out the storm."
She said the Chiefland thrift store
property will be coming off the tax rolls
because it will be owned by a tax exempt
organization much like a church would be
tax exempt.

Mine, from Page 1A


Levy County Development Director Rob Corbitt reads through his notes as a capacity crowd awaits the start
of the Planning Commission meeting.


Johannes Vanderwey. He wants to 'mine limestone in an
area where thoroughbred horses are raised within sight of
the proposed mine.
Vanderway said the limestone would be used in
scrubbers at coal-fired electric generating plants. He said
the scrubbers remove 90 percent of the poisons produced
when coal is burned to make electricity. He wanted a 20-
year permit to mine limestone.
"My goal is to work with the environment and clean up
the environment," he said.
Residents said they believe the high powered explosives
that would be used to blast'the limestone loose would send
underground shock waves that would crack the walls and
ceilings of homes, barns and swimming pools.
J. David Tillman with Tillman & Associates said the
explosives would be used to loosen rock for excavation.
The rock would be crushed into powder. He said the
crusher would be housed in an insulated concrete building
to reduce the noise. The crusher would operate 24 hours a
day.
Eighty percent of the powdered limestone would leave
the site by rail car and 20 percent by truck. A conveyor belt
would transport the powdered rock to rail cars or trucks.
The total project area is 88.13 acres, but the area to be
mined is 68.80 acres. '
CSX railway has, offered to build a rail line to the
site provided Vanderwey pays the cost. The mine would
eventually create a 100-foot deep hole. Tillman said a clear

Accused Bronson gunman

turns himself in to sheriff

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer.

A 29-year-old Bronson man wanted in connection
with a shooting behind the Bronson Post Office onApril
25 has turned himself in to face charges of attempted
homicide and three counts of aggravated assault, the
sheriff's office said.
Aaron Hope, 28, 660 Bronson' St., is being held
on $800,000 bond. He turned himself in at the Levy
County Sheriff's Office on April 30. The sheriff's
office bad launched a statewide manhunt to find him.
The victim, Cosmo "Doughboy" James, 23, remains
in a Gainesville hospital in critical condition. He was
shot through the front of his throat with a handgun.
The bullet went through his throat and exited through
his spine, according to Capt. Evan Sullivan.
The shooting occurred during an argument about a
$5 debt. James' mother allegedly owed Hope the, $5.
She denies owing Hope any money, Sullivan said.
Sullivan ,said James' condition has not changed.
Sullivan is more optimistic that he will survive the
bullet wound but wasn't certain whether the spinal
injury would result in paralysis.
After the argument about the money, Hope drove
away from the scene but promised to return "to take
care" of James. He did return and opened fire on James.
He also fired several rounds at three other people. They
.were unharmed.
The area behind the Post Office where the shooting
occurred is a known drug area. However, it is also
frequented by older men who aren't involved with
drugs but'want to socialize and drink beer, according
to the sheriff's office.

Police capture CVS bandit
A man who robbed the CVS Pharmacy at knifepoint
Monday was captured by a Chiefland police officer in the
parking lot of the Burger King a short time later, police said.
Shawn Thomas Paugh, 26, Chiefland, was arrested on
charges of armed robbery and resisting without violence.
Chief Robert Douglas said Paugh entered the store at 8 a.m.
and brandished a hunting knife demanding all of the store's
pain medication. The pharmacist said she was in fear of her
life when Paugh jumped the counter and filled a backpack
with pain killer type drugs.
Sheriff's investigator Mike Bell observed the suspect and
gave chase. Chiefland Police Officer Matt Poppell contacted
Paugh in the parking lot of the Burger King Restaurant and
ordered him to the ground. f


of the meeting, said he lived a mile and a quarter from
a limestone mine and the aftershocks from the blasting.
caused cracks in his patio and driveway.
"That's my main concern, the shock wave coming
underground," he said.
Tillman said the State Fire Marshall keeps tabs on the
effects of the blasting. He said the blasting would have to
meet state standards. Seismographs would be placed at
homes near the mine to assure the blasting was meeting
state requirements.
He countered arguments by residents that that water
could be contaminated by benzene, a byproduct of.using
diesel fuel and certain explosives. He said the Vanderwey
plans would use biodiesel which doesn't produce benzene
and the explosives also do'not produce benzene as a
byproduct.
He said there is no evidence that mining devalues the
surrounding property or that it disturbs thoroughbred race
horses, claims made by audience members.
Donna Owen, who said she was in the real estate business
for 38 years, said the mine would negatively impact real
estate values. She said that's just common sense.
"No matter what these people say, I will never ever
believe this won't have a huge impact on property values,"
she said.
Ron Locke, who has owned land in the area for 35 years,
said the mine would generate dust, pollution and noise and
would impact the water of residents, as well as destroying
the quality o6flife.. .
"If a violation occurs, who is going to bring water to the
residents?" he said.

"It allows us, due to the economy, a little more time to
get the permanent financing," he said. "We hope to get the
.financing secured by late spring early summer. The longer
it is, the longer it takes to start generating patient care."
Schupp said that State Senator Charlie Dean of Citrus
County was instrumental in helping get the legislation
written and passed.
"I asked Sen. Dean to see if he could help us get a bill
through to give us an additional 12 months extension due
to the economy," Schupp said. "The bill was written for
36 months. I told him that I did not need that much time.
He said he would rather we have extra time. The bill went
.through the House and the Senate with no one opposing
it."
/ Schupp said a number of investors have stepped forward,
including JP Morgan and Florida Enterprises, the latter of
which is looking at procuring government funds available
through thd Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). He
added that the Obama Administration has yet to provide
details on how those funds can be used, so that proposal
remains on hold.
"The good news is that Florida Enterprise wants to help
us get the financing," he said. "This is the main project
out of three that they are looking at. It is the only rural
project in the state the other two are urban, one' in West
Palm Beach and the other in Pensacola. This one creates
the most jobs out of the three projects."
Schupp said there are some snags still in the system
regarding TARP money.
"The language, from the administration in D.C.
regarding TARP money, has not come out in waiting
from the Treasury Department as to how those funds are
supposed to be distributed," he said.
Schupp added that although the process has taken longer
than anticipated, Ameris is fully committed to seeing the
hospital through to completion.
"Ameris has $2.6 million incurred over the past five
years on this project, including land, consultants, attorneys,
corporate time, salaries, and fees," he said. "This financial
expenditure should show the residents our commitment."
With any luck, he said, crews can begin breaking
ground as early as October on the facility, which, once
built, would employ-as many as 350 people. The future site
of the hospital, behind the Wal-Mart Supercenter, makes it
accessible to all three counties.. The planned construction
of Suncoast Parkway 2 through Citrus County a toll road
that will increase traffic on U-S. 19 through Chiefland -
was also taken into account.
The' hospital will be constructed on 20 acres behind the
supercenter. It will be designed for a third story that can
be added when the need arises. The company also plans to
build a helipad in one comer of the property. Ambulance
helicopters will land at the site..

TEA Party no big deal
That tempest in a teapot rally on the courthouse steps was
much ado about nothing. (Journal 4/23/09)
A tax protest against a 3 percent increase in taxes on the
richest 5 percent of taxpayers must have had those "Hundreds"
of Levy County residents really worked up. I guess that's why
the 95 percent of us who will see our taxes go down did not
attend that Mad Hatter's TEA party and murder time. And why
didn't this newspaper report that tax fact? I guess that's like
asking "How is a raven like a writing desk?"
Seriously though, I have to agree with community organizer
Juanita Melchoir, that the real purpose of the Christian
Coalition sponsored rally was to vent their frustrations but its
not really about taxes.
They are angry because they lost the election.
They are angry because the president's middle name is
Hussein.
They are angry because his birth certificate is supposedly a
fake and Hawaii wasn't a state when he was born.
They are angry because he shook hands with Hugo Chavez.
They are angry because he is revealing the Bush
administration for what it really was: morally corrupt and
financially and fiscally incompetent. They are angry about the


Letters to the Editor
Republican Recession.
They are angry about the truth. They have been teaspoon fed
with partisan propaganda in the right-wing news media, they
have been Malkinized, and the truth hurts.
They need to get over it. The Obama administration is not
secretly plotting against them it already beat them in public.
There is little danger that the majority will secede from the
union that is an act for extremists at both ends of the political
spectrum. The sky is not falling.

Thanks for the help during the flood
The Citizens of Fowler's Bluff are happy to be
watching the waters of the Suwannee River recede after
recent flooding. Although water is still over the roads
and inside lower levels of about 15 homes, the worst of
the inconveniences has passed. The cooperation among
neighbors has been outstanding in helping everyone prepare
for and exist during flooding.
The residents of Fowler's Bluff would like to thank the
Levy County County Commissioners, especially Miss Lilly


Rooks, the Department of Emergency Management and the
Sheriff's Department for the timely and proactive responses
to the flooding situation. Mrs. Rooks was instrumental
in working cooperatively with Dixie County to have
wake warning stations posted in the waters of the river.
Unfortunately the lights did not come on automatically at
flood stage of 5.5 feet, but hopefully it will be fixed soon.
A trailer was provided by the county to collect hazardous
waste materials; like old paint and oil, to keep them out of
flood waters. Waste Pro ran extra routes to help residents
dispose of trash as they prepared before flooding.
Mark Johnson of the Department of Emergency
Mariagement and Captain Evan Sullivan, of the Sheriff's
Office met with residents before the flood. They told us
the predictions and also listened to the residents who had
been through flooding before. During the flooding the
Sheriff's Officers patrolled both by river and road, checked
on residents who stayed and checked the homes of those
who left. They also posted signs to close the boat ramps
and roads as needed. The Florida Wildlife Commission also
provided river patrols. It was a great comfort to have their

that got the wheels turning upstairs.
The following is a compilation of

fated decisions of the people he wrongly
appoints to.his cabinet. Just a hunch, but
I get the feeling that a sweeping illness
will not be the worst product of Homeland

tenure as Homeland Security Director.
Hope I am wrong.

Did a representative from the New York

group our national media has become.

year in April. Buscher said rain seems to help the bloom of
wildflowers,
Buscher said some of Florida's tobacco farmers who can
no longer make a living growing tobacco have converted their
farms into wildflower seed farms. They grow wildflowers and
harvest the expensive seed late in the summer. I applaud their
efforts.
I think'it's easy in difficult economy to walk out the front
door each day and not take in the wonders that surround us in
Florida. It's easier to swallow a couple of cups of caffeinated
coffee and blast off into the working world, ignoring
something as simple as a wildflowers growing at your doorstep
or a bird -chirping in the tree.
Wildflowers are a part of the state's landscape and they can
be a welcome sign to tourists accustomed to seeing Florida as
endless stretches of pine trees and asphalt on the interstate and
turnpike. The tourists who come into Levy County this year.
will no doubt marvel at the spectacular scenery on U.S. 27A,
assuming they travel that way. If they go off the beaten path,
they can continue to see wildflowers on county roads.
I have walked in beds of wildflowers while taking
photographs. Trust me they are buggy. Every six-legged critter
in the world seems to reside in these natural flower beds, which
is good, except for the red bugs chiggerss). I think those bugs
were created by someone with a sense of humor.
Buscher said the FDOT tries to instill in its employees the
right attitude about wildflowers. The mower operators are told
to. make a conscious effort to avoid them. The whole idea is
respect.
Jerrels said the same is true of his mower operators. He
had to pull one of his operators aside last week when he was
mowing more of the. wildflowers than he should have. A
resident had complained to Jerrels. He talked to the mower
operator.
There is nothing wrong with respecting Florida's natural
history. I think it's the correct attitude to take. Give the
wildflowers a little space. They will repay us tenfold with
scenes of color.
That's why I wanted to give FDOT and Levy County a pat
on the back. FDOT's wildflower program demonstrates that
the agency has a soft spot for one of Florida's most beautiful
natives.
The Levy County Road Department, likewise, should be
praised when it does something as noteworthy as preserving
a piece of the county's natural history, our wildflowers. They
deserve to be recognized.
We all benefit from public, policies that make our lives more
pleasant.

Fundraising BBQ sparks outpouring of community support


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A fundraising barbeque for -retired
watermelon and peanut farmer Kenneth
Matthews attracted more people than
organizers anticipated Friday. They ran out
of food just after the noon hour.
The barbeque was a success.
Matthews, 63, was struck down by a
stroke on Jan. 23 as he was driving a tractor
while laying plastic for a watermelon field
near Chiefland. He suddenly lost the use of
his arms and legs.
"I didn't know what was happening.
Your arm won't move and legs won't move.
and 10 minutes earlier you were fine," he
said.
Fortunately for Matthews, the man
sitting on the machine behind the tractor
noticed something was wrong. Harold
Strong climbed on the tractor and turned it
off.
Matthews has been receiving therapy at
Park Meadows Health and Rehabilitation
Center in Gainesville ever ,since being
diagnosed with a stroke. Medical bills have
piled up. The fundraiser was held in his
honor.
Tommy Dees, longtime friend and owner
ofCowboyz Barbeque and Catering, offered
to cook the food for a barbeque. Matthews'
relatives and friends did the rest.
"If it was somebody else, he'd be
cooking for them," Dees said.
Matthews, known for cooking at
charities, said it would be impossible to
thank all the people who volunteered to put
on the fundraiser and who bought dinners.
His wife Jacqueline agreed.
"It's amazing what people have done for
him. You can'tput it in words," she said. "We
are blessed to live in a community where
people are so caring and concerned."
Dees cooked 600 pounds of donated
pork and 70 pounds of donated beef.
Richard and Nancy, Stone donated the
drinks and dinner rolls. Dees and his crew
began cooking the meat at 2:30 a.m. Friday
and started making the dinners at 9:30 a.m.
They began serving dinners at 11 a.m. They
were out of food by noon.
Retired fariner R.D. Skelton was like
many who arrived to find there was no food.
He handed his money over to the organizers
with his best wishes for Matthews.
Linda Lawson of 'Good Shepherd
Lutheran Church said a charitable
organization yvithin the church, Thrivent
Finance Services, has pledged to give
Matthews $1,500.
"We give our profits away," Lawson
said.
She said the people of the community
were very generous with their money.
"I know the Matthews family is very
grateful," Lawson said. "It's a wonderful
community we live in."
The family is extremely grateful for the
community support, but Mrs. Matthews
said the.people at Park Meadows who have
worked to help her husband get feeling
back in his arm and help him "valk again
have done exceptional work. She wanted
to mention their names. They were Mike
Spillane PTA, Laura McTureous OT who
brought feeling back to her dad's arm,
Patrick Shead PTA who helped him walk
again, and Shalaka Limaye, PT who did
Sthe evaluation. Kenneth Matthews said, he
believes Spillane is probably the best in his
field. Jacqueline Matthews said she wanted
to recognize all of them for their skills and
what they did for her husband.


Kenneth Matthews and his wife Jacqueline expressed their thanks for the support they received at the barbeque fund
raiser held in his honor. (Terry Witt)


Local volunteers helped serve the meal, which consisted
of barbeque pork or beef, or both. (Rick Bumrnham)

Paved bike trail to be constructed to Manatee Springs


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A state transportation official confirmed Tuesday a $2.5
,million paved bicycle trail will be constructed along both
sides of Manatee Springs Road beginning early next year.
Jordan Green said the enhancement project is being
funded with federal stimulus money. The Manatee Springs
Bike trail will stretch all the way from U.S. 19 to Manatee
Springs State Park.
Green said the plan is to extend the road shoulder seven
feet. Two feet will consist of rumble strips to warn drivers
against leaving the main roadway. The other five feet will
be used for bicycle traffic.


The bike trail will also intersect with the Nature Coast
Trail, a paved state bike and pedestrian trail stretching from
south Chiefland to Cross City and Trenton..
Plans call -for bids. to be let in October. Construction
won't begin on the Manatee Springs Bike Trail until early
January.
Green confirmed that the project would be constructed
at Tuesday's county commission meeting. A cheer went up
in the audience when the announcement was made.
The Manatee Springs Bike Trail is one of two federal
economic stimulus projects in Levy County. The other is
the resurfacing of County Road 40 in south Levy County
from Park Street to the Marion County line.
Green was present to discuss the state road priorities of


the Levy County Commission and the tentative five-year state
road plan. The plan includes three projects on U.S. 19. The
resurfacing of the highway from Lebanon Station to Otter
Creek and the addition of five foot paved safety shoulders is
ongoing. FDOT will soon repave the portion from Otter Creek
to Chiefland along with adding the five-foot safety shoulders.
A third project is ongoing in the city of Chiefland.
Gina Buscher said the safety shoulders are being added
because of previous traffic crashes on U.S. 19 when
motorists ran off the highway shoulder and crashed into
trees. She said fatalities resulted from the crashes. The
paved road" shoulders give motorists a chance to correct
their mistake if they happen to drift off the main roadway
on U.S. 19.

Little -cancer survivor gets plenty of attention


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Austin Allen was all smiles Saturday as
he rode on his father Patrick's shoulders.
Surrounded by family members who love
him and by people who wanted to see
the nine-month-old baby boy, he was the
center of attention at the American Cancer
Society Relay for Life in Chiefland.
The good news is that Austin was the
youngest cancer survivor at the relay.
His AML leukemia was diagnosed early
and is in remission thanks largely to his
pediatrician, Dr. Mary Valetta of Trenton
Medical Center (TMC) in Chiefland,
according to mom and dad, Natasha and
Patrick Allen.
When Austin was two months old
Natasha brought Austin to Valetta for a'
rash. Valetta had a biopsy done on the rash
and leaned heavily on the people who were
running the lab work to get the results to
her as soon as humanly possible. She was
persistent. Time was critical.
Austin's parents credit Valetta with
saving their son's life. Thanks to her,
the cancer was found early enough to be
treated successfully. Austin was given
chemotherapy at two months old. It
made him sick at times, but it was good
medicine.
"He's in remission. It 'could come back,
but it may never come back," Natasha
Relay, from Page 1A


Allen said. "Without her (Dr. Valetta) he
wouldn't have got his diagnosis when he
did."
Patrick Allen added that if Austin had
not been admitted to the hospital when he
was, within a month he could have died.
Valetta was present at the relay and she,
too, was all smiles. She credited Natasha
Allen with being a strong advocate for
Austin during his stay at the hospital.
"She was the one who made sure
everything went the way it should,"
Valetta said. "Natasha underestimates her
role as a parent. When you're in a hospital
setting you have to be an advocate to make
sure everything goes right. She was a very
strong advocate."
The Allen's also say the community
support they received from the Chiefland
area was extremely helpful. Austin was
never alone' in the hospital. One of the
parents was always there by his side thanks
to the financial support of the community.
They said they are grateful to the Chiefland
community.
"This is a wonderful place to live,"
Patrick said smiling.
AML Leukemia is an aggressive type
of eukemia, Valetta said. It is congenital.
That means. Austin was born with it in
his system. But Natasha said the hospital
doctors who treated Austin indicated it was
a good sign that he went into remission
that early.


Austin Allen enjoys a ride on dad Patrick's shoulders. The bubbly nine-month-
old was the youngest cancer survivor at the relay.

friend Anne Alcorn of Newberry are breast cancer survivors.


H.C. Henderson, a prostate cancer .1 2 Z
survivor, said all survivors have Donna Bouchie of Old Town shares a
a story to tell and share common moment On the cancer survivors walk
threads in their lives, with grandson Adrian Hook.


When he was first diagnosed with
prostate cancer, he had surgery to remove
the prostate, he said. After a few years he
was declared cancer free. A couple of years
ago, his PSA test indicated it was back. His
doctor told him a couple of cancer cells
apparently had survived and took seed.
His only complication now is that he
lacks the energy he once had, but he feels
fine'
Henderson said cancer survivors also
share another common thread. The families
of cancer patients are also impacted by the
disease.
Cancer survivors have gratitude for the
support of the immediate family.


Henderson's comments hit home
with the survivors. They agreed with his
assessments about the common threads
they have.
And cancer can affect anyone.

Connie Sanchez, who had breast cancer,
was wearing her purple survivor shirt
along with fellow survivors Anne Alcorn
of Newberry, also a breast cancer survivor,
and Donna Bochie of Old Town, who had
cancer in her lower digestive tract.
Sanchez said having cancer "makes you
realize what's really important to you."
"The cancer you have to deal with it
the rest of your life," she said

_ __ Williston dismisses Interlachen


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

Williston flexed 'its muscles Tuesday, hammering,
Interlachen 16-0 in a Region 2-3A baseball quarterfinal at
the Devils Den in Williston.
The Red Devils scored early, often, and in complex ways
against the overmatched Rams, who seemed out of place
from the opening pitch. In fact, Williston batted around in
the first three innings of the game, scoring 14 times over
that stretch. With the win, Williston advances to a Friday
night matchup with Keystone Heights, 7-0 winners over
PK Yonge Tuesday.
Derick Milam got things started for the Red Devils
Tuesday, reaching base on an infield hit and promptly
stealing second. He scored on a base hit by freshman
Max White, who also scored on a hard-'hit single by Chris
Morrow. DJ King, running for Morrow, came around to
score on an infield by Tyrie Boyer. Boyer came around
to score on a triple down the right-field line by Andrew
Poupard. Poupard waltzed in on a hit by Charlie Hilton. ,


Before Interlachen and pitcher Josh Rollins could catch
their collective breath, Williston led 5-0.
Williston starting pitcher William Colina faired much
better. Interlachen managed two hits and a walk in the first
inning, but came away without a run, due in large part to
Williston's pickoff of leadoff hitter Matt Byrd. Interlachen
never got past second base the rest of the evening.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, seemed to score at will,
collecting five hits and scoring four times in the second.
Senior Brandon Scott had the big hit of the inning, a line
drive over the head of Byrd in center that wound up being
an inside-the-park home run. Damon Ming added a double
in the second.
Williston added five more on three hits in the third,
including a double down the left-field line. by sprinter
Charlie Hilton. White and Scott also had hits in the inning.
Williston scored its final two runs on two hits in the fifth,
including a double by Ming.
Williston last played Keystone Heights May 2, 2008,
losing to the Indians 12-11 in a Region 2-3A semifinal
matchup in Williston.


Williston runs into buzzsaw versus Keystone Heights

'First Keystone Heights broke open a
scoreless tie. Then they broke Williston's
hearts.
The Lady Indians, behind ,ace pitcher
Jessica Knight, easily dismissed their
Levy County opponents May 1, winning.
10-0 in six innings before a loud crowd in
Keystone.
The Lady Red Devils collected only two
hits and threatened only once, in the first
imning. Williston (17-9) loaded the 'bases
with two outs, with walks to Dayne Hunn
and Kaitl n Bannon sandwiched around a
hit by Laurrin Howard. But Bannon was
called out for interference on a ground ball
to end the inning.
The game remained scoreless until
the third, when a series of. errors opened
the door for Keystone Heights. Chandler
Singletary reached base on a hit and
advanced to second when the Williston
outfield failed to field the ball cleanly. Kari


Minor drove Singletary home on a ball that
the Lady Red Devils', infield threw away.
Minor would eventually come around to
score on a wild pitch by Williston ace Tori
Stamper.
Keystone Heights (24-5) added three
more in the bottom of the fourth, and the
rally was once again aided by Williston
miscues. After Cortney Casas reached base
on an infield hit, the Lady Red Devils made
two, throwing errors on a bunt by Minor,
who came all the way around to score.
Singletary later walked and scored on an
infield hit.
Keystone Heights would add two runs in
the bottom of the fifth, and three more in the
bottom of the sixth to finish off Williston.
With the win, the Lady Indians advanced to
a Tuesday meeting with Winter Park Trinity
Prep for the Class 3A Regional final.
With only a single senior on this year's
team, the Lady Red Devils appear to
have a bright future ahead. The Journal
congratulates the team for a successful
2009 season.

Lafayette ends Bronson's season


Kelby Barber tosses a sidearm pitch vs. Lafayette County.


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's varsity baseball team ended its season
Thursday night when it lost 10-0 to Lafayette
County in a district playoff game.
The number one ranked Hornets added four runs
in the bottom of the second inning when sophomore
Billy McClelland hit a grand slam home run over the
left field fence off Eagle pitcher Lucas Morrison.
Morrison was pitching on one day's rest after
defeating Hawthorne 4-2 in the opening round of
the tournament at Trenton. Coach Mike Pogue said
he thought Morrison could pitch on a day's rest, but
the Hornets' bats were on fire early.
Pogue sent pitcher Kelby Barber into the game
in the top of the seventh with the score at 7-0, but
the Hornets reached home three more times before


Barber shut them down for the remainder of the
game using his sidewinder fast ball. The, game
ended in five innings.
It was Pogue's final game at Bronson, and he
thanked the team members for their hard work.
"I don't have the words guys to express my
appreciation for you guys working, hard and
playing hard," he' said. "I love you guys and I am
not ashamed to say it. I'm not one of those macho
guys who won't say what I feel."
Pogue said he believes the players have built the
foundation for a strong Bronson baseball team in
the future.
"I think we started something that can carry on
for the next few years," Pogue said in an interview
with reporters. "I would venture to say if Kelby
Barber is healthy next year, we should win the
district."


Williston senior signs letter of intent with Palatka college


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

On April 29, friends, classmates, team
members and family crowded into the
Williston High School media center. A cake
waited on the red-draped table and a banner
exclaiming "Congratulations Derick" hung
on the wall in the front.
Derick Milam, the man of the hour,
mingled before taking his place at the table,
front and center.
Everyone' was gathered to witness the
signing of a full-ride baseball scholarship
- including full tuition, books and housing
- Milain received from St. John's River
Community College in Palatka.
Milam transferred to Williston from
Dunnellon a few months ago and although
his time at the school has been short,
Williston High School baseball Head Coach
Jim Smith said he has made a huge impact


on the diamond and in the classroom.
After signing the scholarship contract,
Milam thanked friends and family for being
so supportive. He also thanked everyone
from Williston for accepting him as one of
their own in such a short period.
St. John's River Community College
baseball Head Coach Ross Jones said he is
proud to bring Milam on the team.
"Whenever I get a kid from Williston,
I get a tough kid who really knows how to
play," he said.
His sentiment was showcased the next
night when Williston overtook P.K. Yonge
3-2 to win the district championship. Milam
pitched all seven innings, striking out 11
batters. His pitching record at Williston is
7-1.
"He's athletic so he can be used as a two-
way guy," said Coach Jones. "He brings
something else to the table; the majority of
the time, he'll spend on the mound."

Seven Facts about the New Sales Tax

Deduction for Vehicle Purchases.
Taxpayers who buy a new car or several other types of motor vehicles this year
may be entitled to a special tax deduction when they file their 2009 federal tax
returns next year. The tax break is part of the American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009.

1. State and local sales taxes paid on up to $49,500 of the purchase price of
qualifying vehicles are deductible.
2. Qualified motor vehicles generally include new (not used) cars, light trucks,
motor homes and motorcycles.
3. Purchases must occur after Feb.16, 2009, and before Jan.1, 2010.
4. This deduction can be taken regardless of whether or not you itemize other
deductions on your tax return.
5. Taxpayers will claim this deduction when filing their 2009 federal income tax
return next year.
6. The amount of the deduction is phased out for taxpayers whose modified
adjusted gross income is between $125,000 and $135,000 for individual filers and
between $250,000 and $260,000 for joint filers.
7. The deduction may not be taken on 2008 tax returns.

Consumers who are considering buying a new car may find that this tax incentive
means there.may have never been a better time to buy!

Sonya Heater is not a typical race car
driver in terms of age and gender. The
17-year-old Lecanto High School student
generally races against older male drivers
in the 4-cylinder Bomber class.
But the Citrus County teenager's focus
isn't on breaking gender barriers or racing
in NASCAR some day. She concentrates
on winning races, and she appears to be
good at it. On Saturday, she won first place
in the 4-Cylinder Bomber Class at Bronson
Motor Speedway, her third winthis year.
She said she got lucky. She drew the
same position 'in the heat race as she did
in the actual race itself., She sat in the pole
position, right next to her dad, Wayne
Heater, who was on the outside poll. She
beat her dad and three other men.
"I grew up around racing with my dad,"
she said. "I have a blast. I live for Saturday
pretty much."
She said there is one rule in the Heater
household that could sideline her, but she
doesn't let that happen. She has to earn a
minimum 3.0 grade point average, with all
As and Bs, or she loses her Mustang race
car. She won't let that happen.
She does not consider the sport
dangerous. The closest she came to a
ticklish situation is when her throttle stuck'
wide open at Citrus Motor Speedway in -
Inverness.
"My mom tried to talk me out of racing
after that happened," she said.
No chance.

High Speed, Small Cars
In the Outlaw Modified Class, Billy
Campbell of New Port Richie won first
place. It was the first such race at Bronson
Motor Speedway. He led most of the race.
At one point he saw a fellowAracer he knows
and respects gaining ground on him. He
was forced to accelerate and run hard for .
the remainder of the race to keep the lead.
"Once I seen him, I had to go," he said.


Bikewinners, Rebecca Paugh and Haylee
Jerrels, stand with drivers Mike Stalnaker
and Jeff Stalnaker, I-r respectively.
The Outlaw Modified Class consists of
4-cylinder race cars that run on 13-inch
tall and 10-inch wide tires that grip the
road well. The drivers sit in an open safety
cage and the cars have open wheels. The
race cars reached an estimated speed of 80.
mph at the one-third mile Bronson Motor
Speedway. At Desoto Motor Speedway,
Campbell said the cars often reach 110
mph. It's a slightly longer track.
Drivers in the Outlaw Modifi'ed Class
race are required to wear the HANS
device, a safety-harness that. protects the
racer's head and neck in major collisions.
The HANS device became required racing
equipment after the death of racing legend
Dale Earnhardt in turn 4 at the 2001
Daytona 500.
"I have hit the wall head-on and felt the
thing work," Campbell said.
Campbell has been racing six years. He
said the drivers in Outlaw Modified racing
are like family. There's no fighting in the
pits. The drivers understand they can .run
side by side, but they can't bump each other
from the side. If the open wheels on the
cars were to touch, they would flip upside
down.
This was Campbell's fourth win in six
starts this season. His No. 11 car is running
well and he believes his experience as a
driver is paying off.
-The main requirement for Outlaw racing
is that the car and driver combined weigh
1,925 pounds. Campbell said that gives
big men like him an equal chance to win.
Everyone is racing at the same weight.

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Players, coaches, parents, fans, and
school administrators gathered in the'
elementary school cafeteria Monday to
celebrate the boys' and girls' 2008-09
basketball seasons.
Coaches Mark Lundy and Emily Gore
spoke fondly of their teams, discussing the
ups and downs of a season that began with
the much-publicized theft ofteani uniforms,
along with various equipment, from CHS
facilities.
Lundy thanked the various business
leaders from around town who helped
replace those uniforms, in addition to
administrators at both the county and school
level for their support during the year.
He also thanked the parents for providing
quality young men and women to play ball
for CHS.
"You guys have raised a good group of
kids," he said. "I know that because they
have been in my home, some of them more
so than others during the past two or three
years. With my family -- my wife and my
kids, they have been very respectful, and I
appreciate that."

American Cancer Society seeks volunteer drivers
The American Cancer Society is desperately seeking volunteer drivers to
drive cancer patients to treatment sessions in Gainesville from all around the
surrounding counties. Patients are dropping out of treatment because they
cannot drive themselves and this is not right. In our program, drivers use
their own vehicles and gas and the American Cancer Society trains them in
the program and covers them with liability insurance so that in the event of an
accident, both driver and patient have coverage. Here are the requirements
for being a volunteer driver: a vehicle in good working order, up-to-date
license and insurance, 45-minute training program.
Volunteers should contact Margaret Shaw at any of the following numbers
(352) 376-6866 Ext. 5063, toll free (888) 295-6787 Ext. 5063, Fax: (352)
336-3861, Cell: (352) 215-3007 or by e-mail at margaret.shaw@cancer.org

Suwannee Valley Players' drama opens this weekend


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Suwannee Valley Players are back in action this
weekend, but this time there will be no singing, dancing or
laughing on stage.
"God Committee" by Mark St. Germain opens Thursday
night, and unlike the last several Players' productions that
involved light-hearted comedy and a cheerful audience,
this drama deals with a much more serious topic.
A heart transplant selection committee, including
doctors, a nurse and a priest, is gathered around a conference
table at St. Patrick's Metropolitan Hospital discussing who
should be the recipient of the newest-available organ.
The ensuing play follows the tense debate and arguments
made by the different characters, each with a completely
different background and personality.
"What I like about. it is that it's important," said Susan
Lastra,. Suwannee Valley Players president and "God
Committee" director. The play is accomplishing two things:
It's educating the audience on the importance of being an
organ donor, and it's also entertaining them.
"The play takes an important topic that is often ignored
and adds all of the elements that make a drama good,"
Lastra said. "There is tension between several of the
characters, plus many are going through their own personal
dramas. Combine this with the urgency of choosing an
immediate recipient and you have a very entertaining and
thought-provoking show."
Janice Grant, who plays the sharp, head-strong Nurse
Nella Larkin and is also the Players president, said this
play touches home for her because she donated her kidney
to her mother in 2000.
In the special section "Be an Organ Donor Today!" in
the play's program, Grant wrote: "Anyone who has ever
thought of being a live donor but hesitated from fear,
please don't let fear keep you from this life-saving gift. If
I had given 'in to fear, my Mom probably would not have
enjoyed the same quality of life in the years she had left."
Lastra said all except one involved in the cast and crew
.of "God Committee" are donors, and she expects he will
become one soon, too.
"I'm hoping this play will influence people enough to
at least do some research about organ donation. I'd be

really happy if at least a few of our audience members
became donors," Lastra said.
This play has a very, very good message, she said. It
brings awareness of the importance of organ donation,
which is the most valuable outcome of all.
"It does look at some of the issues doctors, nurses and
committees must face when making these decisions," she
said.
And although the "committee" may not always agree
and get along onstage, the Players' cast and crew definitely'
do.
"Working with this particular cast has been an awesome
experience," Grant said. Everyone has been extremely
helpful with one another with character development and


Movie Choices for Kids


GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS
PAST
(Running time: 100 minutes)
Rated,PG-13
Starring: Matthew McConaughey,
Jennifer Garner

I really hated this movie. Ghosts
of Girlfriends Past tried to paint a
sympathetic picture of a boy who
fell under the misguidance of his
.womanizing uncle early in life
because his parents died. This boy
becomes a huge womanizer himself.
We are supposed to feel sorry for
him, as he breaks, hearts and sees
women only as temporary sexual
partners. Rubbish! I didn't feel 'one
whit sorry for him.
I found him a predatory, cold,
superficial disaster looking to
happen in the lives. of too many
gullible, lovely young women. The
movie glorifies casual sex not a
great image for teenagers.
By the time the movie tries to
redeem our sexual athlete, it's
too late. He is an unsympathetic
character, despite the charm of Mr.
McConaughey. The last thing teens
and 'tweens need to see is a man
who is just interested in sex but
can be rehabilitated by the love of a
good woman. The messages here are
terrible, especially the underlying


one that by giving in, the women are
complicit in his bad behavior. The
movie is tasteless.
There is no violence or bad
language but tons of sexual
references. The way women are
treated in this movie makes it
inappropriate for anyone under 21
years of age. Send the kids to see
Earth; it's a much better movie.
Shame on all of you in Hollywood
for making this movie!

X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE
(Running time: 107 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Liev
Schreiber

I liked this X-Men movie more
than most. It has more of a plot,
taking you back to Wolverine's
childhood. The back-story helps to
explain the other movies. Of course,
there is the usual bad guy, trying to
take advantage of the mutants. In the
end, Wolverine and his brother come
together to take down the bad guy.
There are terrific special effects
here. Some plot twists and lots of
action. Hugh Jackman is wonderful
, as Wolverine, a mutant with a
conscience. There is lots of violence
and occasional bad language. There
is no sex, but a few scenes of


intimacy. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
should be fine for children 11 and 12
and up who will not be frightened by
the violence.

EARTH
(Running time: 99 minutes)
Rated G

I loved this movie. Earth is the
beautiful story of life on our Earth
from the North Pole to the South
Pole. It is narrated by the great James
Earl Jones and the photography is
truly awe-inspiring. The struggles
for survival of the wildlife in
each different climate mixes
environmentalism with biology in a
real and immediate way.
The animals are fascinating. But
this is a true nature movie and so we
see a wolf hunt down and catch a
baby Caribou, a cheetah hunt down
and catch a baby gazelle and a pride'
of lions take down an elephant. While
the movie cuts away after the catch is
made, this might not be appropriate
for sensitive or younger children.
This Disney documentary, along
with the intimate portraits of wild
animals is engrossing, educational
and entertaining. Earth is a "don't
miss" for families with children 6
and up who understand the survival
of the fittest in the wild.


reliability.
Lastra said this has been one of the smoothest
productions she has worked and attributes the ease to the
cast and crew's small size and experience, each having
participated with the Players at least once before.
Performances will be held two consecutive weekends
beginning May 8-10 and continuing May 14-17.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday night performances begin
at 8 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Students and
seniors will receive $1 off admission on-Thursday, May
14. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Bring
your organ donor card and receive $1 off admission at any
performance. Productions are held at the Chief Theatre,
25 E. Park Ave., Chiefland.

"My dog's better than your dog" was the line from a
TV commercial jingle made famous by Ken-L Ration dog
food during the '60s and '70s. After living with my Toy
Manchester Terrier, Solo, for a few years, I changed the
lyrics to "My dog's smarter than your dog." Really, he
was, and he knew it.
Being named for the brilliant spy, Napoleon Solo from
"The Man from U.N.C.L.E.," he had a reputation to live
up to, and he did his best with his sleek black hair and
brown bow-tie markings on his chest. He always exited
every crisis alive and well, while others who may have
accompanied him on his excursions didn't.
My sister and I each received a 6-week-old puppy the
year I was 11 and she was 15. Mother brought them home
in a box and would not allow us to look at them. We had to
put our hands in and choose our puppy by touch. Pamela
went for the rough-coated, curly tailed one, and I chose
the smooth-coated, pointy tailed one, both from the same
litter, but very different in appearance. (They were very
different, indeed, from our previous canine, Yogi, a Fox
Terrier, who after having just given birth to six precious
puppies, went mysteriously missing along with all of
her brood, while we were conveniently out of the house
shopping, or so said Mother. Both new puppies were
male. Makes one wonder.)
When Solo and his brother, George, were about 6 months
old, they went on one of their daily neighborhood jaunts
- you know, the usual sniffing and barking routine. Two
went out, one came back. Unfortunately, George was not
street-smart, and alas, Solo suffered grief at a very young
age, not to mention Pamela was not very happy, either.
Mother tried two more 'puppies, one going the way
of the street again, the other, some undiagnosed illness.
Finally, we thought it best to let Solo go solo.
Sometime in my early 20s, my sister left her Chinese
Pug, Sassy, with me for one night while she attended the



Springhouse Quilters
Twelve members of Springhouse Quilters got
together last Tuesday to make Bargello placemats. Alice
Gilbert was the instructor for the class. Alice was a
great inspiration to this group of quilters in cutting,
piecing, sewing and sometimes ripping out seams to
make their placemats. Alice also does beautiful hand
applique. At the end of the day, all of those attending
hadrthe beginning of four placemats. This w'as afun and:
very tiring day for this group of ladies.
Springhouse members are busy making items for
the quilt show gift shop that is set for November 13
and 14. Some members are individually making items,
while Norma Birman is busy planning and scheduling
workshop time for the ladies to meet and make things
for the quilt show.
The next regular monthly meeting of Springhouse
Quilters will be on May 12. This will be a fun day as
Jan Litzinger is planning a wonderful tea party for the
members. There will be very little business on 'this
day.
There will be the regular show-and-tell along with
the tea party. Of course, there will be plenty of time for
the regular show-and-tell..
For information about Springhouse Quilters, contact
Lois Scott, (352) 463 2207. Regular monthly meetings
are held on the second Tuesday of each month.

Lois Scott, publicity


Opera in Atlanta. I had by that time acquired my own
companion for Solo, a gorgeous German Shepherd named
Zar. Well, he was quite a smartie (not to be confused with
the new dope) himself and could open any door, and he did
just that on that fateful evening, letting himself, Solo and
Sassy out.
Did I mention that Pugs are not known for their intellect?
She ran straight for the street and did not live to hear about
her master's incredible backstage experience at the Opera
House. Instead, she looked down from Doggie Heaven
to hear her master call me a dog murderer, among other
choice labels.
Soon after this uplifting weekend, Zar went his own way
also, having attacked Solo one time too many. He wound
up on a farm, happily chasing rabbits, not having to bother
with city life any longer, although I do think he missed
his surreptitious morning swims in the mayor's pool, said
mayor living two doors down. (I, on the other hand, did
not miss the 6 a.m. phone calls from our city leader asking
me to remove the giant vision of fur from their pool.)
To my utter amazement, a few years later, my sister
and her husband actually asked me to keep their black lab,
Saint, for them while they went off on a romantic retreat.
They were called back because, yes, you guessed it; Saint
was hit by a car in front of my apartment. Thank the Good
. Lord it was only a broken leg. The weird thing, or maybe
not so weird, was that Solo was standing on the dotted line
in the middle of the street looking oh-so innocent.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Methinks the dog
doth survive too.much. I'm not saying my darling Solo lured
all of these others to their demise or departure, but he was
the last dog standing, clicking those little toenails across the
kitchen floor for almost 17 years. Funny thing, my sister has
never asked me to keep any more of her pets.
'Til next time,

Log Cadin Quilters

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 30, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. -It was a fellowship day
no working on any quilt projects. We all enjoyed
visiting, going through quilt books, helping a lady with
a wall-hanging pattern and going over the days since
we last saw each other. It was a great day.
Our prayers are with Joanelle Hall who has lost her
1 04-year-old father, that's a long time to live and so
much as changed as the years go by. Pat is still in New
York taking care of her father and mother, both are in
their 90s.
B. J. and I traveled to the Gainesville Sheriff's
Office on Wednesday to take 12 bags of clothes and
shoes. The inmates who are going home use them.
Next week, the boys from Lancaster will be back to
get the yard worked on.
Lunch was so good with fried chicken, cheese and
macaroni, kraut and hot dogs, broccoli, slaw, noodles,
sweet potatoes casserole, banana bread, fruitcake,
cream cheese roll, cherry pie and so much more.

FORECLOSURE PREVENTION: GMAC GIVES TIPS ON HOW TO KEEP YOUR HOME


(NAPSI)-The foreclosure crisis is receiving national attention, and financial
education is one way GMAC Financial Services is addressing the issue. The GMAC
SmartEdge program teaches consumers about the basics of financial responsibility:
understanding credit and credit scores, budgeting, home financing options and key
mortgage concepts. SmartEdge provides outreach to consumers through public
seminars, online programs and community forums.
One of the most important points the SmartEdge curriculum emphasizes is to
be proactive if you're having difficulty making your mortgage payments. Some
additional tips from GMAC:
* Don't wait--ask your mortgage service for help. If you have fallen behind on
your mortgage payment or are facing a financial challenge, contact your mortgage
service for help. You can call the number on your most recent mortgage statement
or contact HOPE NOW at (888) 995-HOPE. GMAC Mortgage customers can call
(800) 627-0128. Recently, the Obama administration launched the "Making Home
Affordable" program and options are available to borrowers. For more information,
visit www.makinghomeaffordable.gov.
* Educate yourself. Review the terms and conditions of your mortgage and learn
about the foreclosure process for residents of your state. The U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development posts links to such information on its Web site:
www.hud.gov.
* Get free advice. There are resources available at no charge on a local, state and
national level. These resources may help you manage your finances, as well as
.evaluate your mortgage options.
In 2003, in response to the rising number of homeowners facing payment
difficulties, GMAC created its Homeownership Preservation Enterprise (HOPE)
team of loan specialists to provide in-depth mortgage assistance and financial
counseling to borrowers: This nationwide team offers "homeowners help"
-workshops and face-to-face meetings with borrowers, and partners with national and
community housing organizations on home preservation initiatives.
The GMAC HOPE specialists see firsthand the many reasons homeowners may


A


face hardship, including financial mismanagement, illiteracy, unemployment or
unexpected medical expenses. The following options may help homeowners facing
these difficulties avoid foreclosure:
* Repayment (forbearance) plan: If you have fallen behind on your payments, a
repayment plan will allow you to make regular full payments plus a portion of the
delinquency each month over a period of time. This "catch-up arrangement works
best for homeowners who fell behind but whose financial situation has recently
improved.
* Loan modification: This option may be utilized if homeowners have seen
a reduction in income or increase in expenses, and making the full monthly
mortgage payment is not possible for the foreseeable future. Loans qualifying for
a modification typically offer one (or several) of the following options: reduce
the interest rate, extend the loan term or defer a portion of the loan amount until
financial circumstances improve. Since homeowners facing foreclosure have likely
missed several payments, a loan modification may offer to add the delinquency to
the balance of the loan and reamortize (recalculate) the loan.
* Short sale: Selling your home is another alternative to foreclosure. In today's
market, you may not be able to find a buyer for your house who will pay what you
owe on the mortgage loan. In this case, the amount you receive from the sale will be
"short" the full amount needed to retire the mortgage debt. However, some mortgage
companies may be willing to take less than the amount owed as a better alternative
than having to foreclose on the home and put the house on the market.
* Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure (DIL): If all other options have failed and you are
unable to sell your house, your mortgage lender may allow you to sign the title of
,the property over to it. This option may be a less damaging option to your credit than
a foreclosure judgment.
Again, if you'have fallen behind on your mortgage payments or if you are facing
a financial challenge, contact your mortgage service for help. Call the number on
your most recent statement or HOPE NOW at (888) 995-HOPE. GMAC Mortgage
customers can call (800) 627-0128. To learn more about automotive financing,
credit, mortgage, insurance and banking, visit www.SmartEdgebyGMAC.com.
Keeping your home your own may be easier than many families realize.

In the frenzied moments after Williston's )
wild 3-2 win over PK Yonge for the District
5-3A title April 30, Williston Head Baseball
Coach Jim Smith forced a weary. smile. H
Having battled a stomach flu all day, and
having had a cooler full of ice water poured
down his back, a weary smile was about all
the 13-year coach could muster.
But it was a smile nonetheless, produced
by the coach of the never-say-die Red
Devils, winners of 35 straight home district
games. (19-6) shocked the Blue Wave The Red Devils celebrate their third consecutive district crown.
Williston (19-6) shocked the Blue Wave
with two seventh-inning runs, yanking
victory from the jaws of defeat before a
delirious crowd at the Devils Den. Damon
Ming drilled the game-winning hit, a one-
out single to right center field to score Max
White, who had tied the game with a double
to score Conner Clayton moments before.
The rally made a winner out of senior*
right-hander Derick Milam (7-1), who ,
struck out 11 while allowing only eight
hits and four walks.' Milam sigAed a
national letter of intent with St. Johns River

Afterward, Smith had complimentary
words for both Milam and PK Yonge starter M1 40
Justin Landers. The Blue. Wave, he added,
gave Williston all they wanted and more. Al
"It was a well-pitched game by both WE
sides," he said. "PK Yonge has a good *
baseball team they really made us earn '. f.

catch- by inches. Clayton came around
to score as the ball bounded away from
Cummings, and White scampered to third
base when the throw from the outfield came
in to home plate.
That set up Ming's big hit, one he
dedicated to an uncle who had passed away
earlier in the week.
"I was just looking for something I could
drive, and he (Landers) just left one over
the plate, right there in my power alley," he
said. "I did that for my uncle."
White was also at the center of a first-
inning rally by Williston. "The lanky
freshman drilled a pitch from Landers over
the head of PK Yonge center-fielder Shae
Cothron and dove head-first into third base,
barely beating the throw from the Blue Wave
shortstop Manny Fox. Two pitches later,
White came home when Landers bounced
a pitch past catcher Kai Simmons.
PK Yonge evened the score with a
run in their half of the fifth. Josh Stewart

line and scored on a single by Simmons.
That set up Williston's heroics in the
seventh, which began with a hard-hit single
by McLeod. Smith said the decision to go
to the senior was an easy one to make.
"Cody has been getting on base for us .


all year, so we went to him again," he said.
"Coach Justin Hardy actually suggested it,
and it worked out,"
Things have been working out extremely
well for Williston in recent days, following
a rough stretch that saw them lose three
straight games. The team's current three-
game streak all one-run victories is
somewhat amazing, Smith said.
"For what these kids have been through
all year, I am amazed that we are 19-6 ,
and district champions," he said. "This is
a situation where they should be mentally
worn out. But they are tough-minded kids
who stick together as a family, and that is
what is pulling us through."
Williston head coach Jim Smith fires up his team before they come to bat in the bottom of the seventh. It worked.
