Morriston residents worry about big cats


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Levy County commissioners voted unanimously
Tuesday to send a stern letter to a Morriston area couple
warning them that they' have violated county regulations
by housing a lion, a tiger and a bear on her 7-acre property
without the proper permit.
Commissioners were responding to neighbors of
Suzanne Billiar and her ,husband Brian R. Davis who
appeared before commissioners to complain that the
animals pose a danger to their families. They said the
animals were moved into the neighborhood without their
knowledge.
"One day I woke up and I had a lion, a tiger and a bear
living next door," said Mika Vuto, who lives about 250 feet
from the animals' cages. "I think it is disturbing. We were
not notified these animals were coming."
Vuto has a 3-year-old child and is pregnant. She said
she worries about the big predators getting loose and
posing a danger to herself and her young child. She wants
the animals removed and she wants the county to enforce
its regulations.
Neighbor Neva Riley said she is concerned about her
property values dropping. She said her husband is disabled
and unable to defend himself. She said lions and tigers.
are three times her size and it worries her having the big
animals next door to her home.
"I don't think I should have to live by them," she said.
The county's building and zoning department cited
Billiar and Davis on May 13 for failure to obtain a special
exception permit for Class 1 exotic animals. They have 30


days to"file a response before it automatically goes to a
hearing before judge.
Billiar and Davis's attorney, Dennis-Camp, wrote jie
county saying the animals are properly licensed through
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
the only agency in the state with the power to regulate wild
animals.
Camp said FWC's authority overrides the county's right
to enforce land use and zoning regulations and he said
Billiar and Davis have completed all the steps to obtain
proper permitting from the state agency.
CountyAttorneyAnne Baste Brown said she respectfully
disagrees.
A May 17, 2007 letter from Carla J. Oglo, assistant
general counsel for the state, said local governments
cannot directly regulate wildlife even if the local ordinance
is more restrictive than FWC rules and even if FWC has no
rules or regulations that apply to that particular area. She
added, however, that local government has some control to
determine "appropriate neighborhoods."
The FWC interprets "appropriate neighborhoods"
to mean that before issuing a permit, applicants must
demonstrate to the Commission that they can, provide
satisfactory caging facilities without violating existing
city or county building and zoning regulations. Local
governments can establish "residential only" zoning to
keep out Class 1 wildlife and they can control caging and
building of structures for animals.
Levy County has no "residential only" zoning districts.

Commissioners


express concern


about future of


health .care

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A discussion by the county commission Tuesday
about an expected delay in construction of the Tri-
County Hospital in Chiefland shifted to concerns about
the closing of Alachua General Hospital in Gainesville
this October and the potential impact on Levy County.
The Florida Legislature has given the Tri-County
Hospital a one year extension of its deadline to begin
construction. The Tri-County Hospital has no direct
relationship to Alachua General except that closing the
Gainesville hospital will leave fewer hospital beds.
Commissioner Lilly Rooks stated that the loss of the
hospital could impact the availability of hospital medical
services for the tri-county area.
Rooks said the county needs to begin looking ahead
to the possibility of Levy County ambulances arriving
in Gainesville with a patient only to find hospitals at
capacity. Rooks said Levy County ambulances could
be rerouted to Lake City, Tampa or Jacksonville if no
hospital beds were available in Gainesville.
Her comments followed an announcement by Tri-
County Hospital executive .Frank Schupp that the
Florida Legislature has granted a one-year extension of
its deadline to begin building the $54 million facility in
Chiefland.
He said the hospital will generate 350 jobs and an
annual payroll of $11 million.
Rooks wondered if.the county might be able to obtain
federal economic stimulus money to build the hospital
considering the current economic conditions and the
possible impact of the closing of Alachua General.
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell suggested
newspapers urge their citizens to contact lawmakers
about the issue.
"It is a serious situation," she said.
In other business, County Coordinator Fred Moody
said the county had to pay the $153,000 medical bill
of a woman arrested on charges of attacking a state
prosecutor in a Levy County Courtroom. The woman has
now been released from county custody and the county
is no longer paying her medical bills. The original bill
of the woman was $236,000, but the county negotiated
a reduction of the bill. Moody said the county is also
paying a large medical bill associated with a shooting
behind the Bronson Post Office. He didn't have details.
Lt. Sean Mullins of the Levy County Sheriff's Office
said the agency has received a $94,000 teen driving grant
that will be used to purchase four driving simulators for
the four county high schools. Commissioners voted to

Scientists say Manatee, Fanning Springs polluted by nitrates


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The clear water flowing
from the spring run at Manatee
Springs State Park carries 1,233
pounds of nitrates invisible to
the naked eye daily, while the
water coming from the spring at
Fanning Spring State Park carries
an even heavier daily load, 1,657
pounds of invisible nitrates.
Fanning Springs has the
fourth highest concentration
of nitrates among springs in
Florida. Manatee Springs is in
the top 20 percent of springs
with high nitrate concentrations.
The high nitrate levels act like
fertilizer in the springs, causing
algae to cover much of the spring
bottom.
.Nitrates from the springshed
are responsible for the high
nitrate levels at the two parks.
The kidney shaped springshed
is a 221-square mile area from
north of Trenton to just below
County Road 347 south of
Chiefland. The cities of Fanning
Springs, Trenton and Chiefland
are in the springshed.
Those were a few of the facts
disclosed last Thursday by Carol
Lippincott, coordinator of the
Fanning and Manatee Springs
Working Group. The group
consists of private citizens and
state scientists who talk about
the current condition of the
springs and how best to protect
them in the future.


The city of Fanning Springs
allows the group to meet in its
city council chambers.. The all-
day forum meets about once every
three months to hear speakers
and take comments and questions
from members of the public.
Lippincott showed a slide of
a 1950's photograph of Manatee
Springs State Park when the
bottom of the spring was covered
with eel grass, a native species.
She said the first lifeguard at
the springs, Ellison Hardee,
remembers having to cut the
grass so people could swim.
A slide showing a 2002
photograph of the spring run
shows the native grasses that were
once plentiful have disappeared.
Lippincott said the water
from the springs comes from
an underground limestone
formation known as the Floridan
Aquifer. The aquifer is the source
of drinking water for much of
this area. The fact that the water
flowing through the springs is
contaminated with high levels of
nitrates is an indicator of water
quality in the aquifer.
"The springs are a window
into how polluted our drinking
water is," Lippincott said.
Lippincott also noted that
415,000 visitors come to Manatee
Springs State Park and Fanning
Springs State Park each year,
generating $18 million in revenue
annually for the area, and 375 jobs.
She said the springs have a big
economic impact on the Chiefland


and Fanning Springs area.
Tom Greenhalgh of the
Florida Geological Survey
produced charts showing how
nitrate levels have substantially
increased since the 1950s at
Fanning Springs. Greenhalgh's
associate in the agency, Rick
Copeland, said the aquifer is
2,000 feet deep in parts of the
state.
Greenhalgh qualified
Copeland's statement by using
an analogy. He said the state of
Florida is about 68 miles wide.
The Floridan Aquifer looks like
a sheet of paper by comparison.
It's a thin layer of limestone
rock beneath the surface of the
state that varies in depth.
"It gives a person. a new
perspective on the amount of
fresh water in the state," he
said.
Beneath the Floridan Aquifer
is very hard rock and saltwater,
Copeland said.
Lippincott is asking the
group to come up with "future
scenarios" for Manatee Springs
and Fanning Springs through the
year 2040.
One scenario is called
"fountains of youth." The
spring water is clear and free of
contamination, there is public
support for keeping the aquifer
free of contamination, the
springs are part of a thriving
economy in the area and the
standardof living is higher than
the national average because


Carol Lippincott, who coordinates the springs working
group forums, speaks,to the group as a drawing depicts the

her.


of clean water and the jobs it
creates. The vast majority of
voters in the Manatee Springs
and Fanning Springs area think
clean groundwater and springs
protection are high priorities and
prudent use of groundwater is a
good thing.
The second scenario is
"stagnant cesspools." The water
in the springs is usually turbid
green and fails to meet water
quality standards because of
high concentrations of nutrients,


pesticides and algal toxins.
The economy of the area is
failing because of overuse of
groundwater and the pollution
of groundwater. The Standard
of living is much lower than
the national average because
of lack of clean ground water
and few jobs. Few voters in the
Fanning Springs and Manatee
Springs area believe clean water
is a top priority and funding for
protection and prudent use of
groundwater is low.

residential zone, which means agricultural
activities and residences are allowed in the
zone. But the county has no "residential only'
zones."
However, the county believes it has
Home Rule powers to establish regulations
governing zoning and land use issues,
according to Brown.
Brown cautioned commissioners that
if it comes to a legal challenge, she would
prefer to involve the Florida Association of
Counties and Small County Coalition due to
the magnitude of the issues and the potential
cost.
County Commissioner Lilly Rooks said
the wildlife commission doesn't understand
zoning nor does it have any sympathy for
neighbors who are living next door to lions,
tigers and a bear. She found it hard to believe
a state agency could claim it has more power


than the county commission to regulate land
uses and respond to public safety issues.
Rooks said the county knew nothing
about the lion, tiger and bear coming into
that neighborhood. She said the sheriff's
office, fire departments and ambulance
service knew nothing about the animals.
She wondered what might have happened
if an emergency occurred on the property
or in the neighborhood and first responders
found themselves in the presence of lions
and tigers.
"At some point we have to take a stand,"
she said.
Billiar, who was unaware the issue would
be discussed at meeting, told the Journal her
intent was never to upset neighbors. She felt
she should have been notified of Tuesday's
discussion. She feels she is being harassed by
the county.


She said she has housed smaller wild
animals on the property for 10 years such
as small monkeys and lemurs and neighbors
said nothing. When she brought in the lion,
tiger and bear they began filing complaints
with the county.
Billiar, a Marion County veterinarian,
said the animals were rescued from an owner
who had health and financial problems and
could no longer keep them. She said FWC
had given the previous owner 30 days to give
up the animals. Billiar said her intent was to
give the animals the a home and create an
educational facility people could visit.
"It wasn't meant to be hurtful to anybody,"
she said.
She said all three animals have been in
captivity their entire lives and have been
around humans. She said they are housed in
cages thatmeetthe state's safetyrequirements.


A 12-foot perimeter fence made of 9 gauge
wire surrounds the cages. When the exercise
yard is finished, it will have a 12-foot fence.
Billiar said her mom lives next door to
the facility. She and her husband live on the
property. She said she wouldn't do anything
that could potentially hurt her own family
or anyone else's. Her husband carries a gun.
Any animal that escaped would be shot,
though she and her husband have built the
facility to prevent that from happening.
"I understand their concerns. I didn't do
it to cause concerns. We thought we were
doing a good thing. We were taking animals
that had nowhere to go and giving them a
good home,"
Billiar invited a Journal reporter to visit
their property Tuesday, but the reporter was
unable to take advantage of the offer due to
time constraints.

accept the grant.
Commissioners gave Elections Supervisor Connie
Asbell an additional $33,000 for her current budget. She
said $16,000 of the money was used to defend a voting
rights lawsuit filed by A.D. Andrews. The other half
will fund the overtime she paid her employees during
the election. When commissioners approved Asbell's
budget last year, she got less than she requested.


Commissioners approved a memo requested by
Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce Greenlee
that authorizes the state to pave a portion of County
Road 40 in southern Levy County with federal stimulus
funding.
Commissioners approved the merger of the Gulf
Hammock Volunteer Fire Department with the Levy
County Fire Department, which serves Morriston and


Montbrook.


Gulf Hammock had problems recruiting


volunteers and asked for the merger.
Commissioners set the public hearing date for the
Vanderwey Mine permit request for 6:30 p.m. on June
16. The proposal to give the property owners a special
exception for limestone mining at the site met with fierce
opposition from Williston area residents at the planning
board meeting.

Mrs. Corbin said her sister

Williston red

light cameras

now in service

Williston red light enforcement
cameras are in service
After months of discussion, planning,
construction, installation and fine-tuning,
the red light enforcement cameras are in
place. The cameras have been calibrated
for timing, location and speed id went on
line Friday. Williston Police Department
officials say warning letters will be sent
to violators for the first 30 days but that
courtesy will end on June 15.
Lt. Clay Connolly of the WPD has
fielded several questions regarding the
cameras and most of them have to do with
the point at which a violation is captured.
The easy answer, he says, is "at the stop
bar." Drivers are required to, come to a
complete stop prior to turning right on a
red light. This applies regardless of the
presence of oncoming traffic. Anyone
who routinely slows but fails to stop
should not expect the camera to be so
forgiving, he says.
"1 would also remind motorists that
Gov. Crist signed into law Bill No.
344 that makes a safety belt violation a
"primary" cause for a traffic stop. In the
past, a safety belt violation (alone) did not
quality as a reason for law enforcement
officers to stop a motorist. Tickets were
typically written as a companion or
substitute for another violation. On June
30, officers may stop any vehicle for
failure to comply unless such vehicle is
exempt from using seatbelts."
The WPD asks readers to remember
these changes and alter any "bad habits"
they may have prior to these beginning
dates. Police don't enjoy writing tickets
any more than motorists enjoy receiving
them, they say.


Work continues
Construction workers erect a new traffic light arm above U.S. 19 at the intersection of Park Avenue. The work is part
of a $2.2 million project on U.S. 19 in Chiefland. (Terry Witt)

Regional dairy farmers come together in Chiefland


Group discusses


grazing practices,


other key issues

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

It was originally intended to be a local event, bringing
a few north Florida dairy farmers together to discuss
options for achieving financial stability in a declining
economy.
Then organizers of the Rotational Grazing Field Day
opened the activities up to a much broader audience.
And they showed up by the dozens.
More than 100 farmers from around the southeastern
United States were on hand at Chiefland's Southpoint
Dairy May 14 to discuss various aspects of the dairy
trade, ranging from veterinarian concerns to options for
building pastures.
The primary focus, according to Dr. Mary Sowerby,
regional dairy extension agent, was rotational grazing, a
method of using cows to harvest fields of hay.
"It utilizes cows to do the harvesting instead of
machines, so in that way it is a lot less expensive," she
said. "If you are paying for a lot of equipment and labor
it is a lot more laborious to have to go and feed the cows
every day, plus maintaining a barn where they have to go
stay. It can be expensive very expensive."'
But, Sowerby added, there is a downside as well to
rotational grazing. Requiring the cows to move from field
to field leaves them exposed to the elements, oftentimes
resulting in less production.
"It is a tradeoff," she said. "The cows are not as
protected from heat and other elements, and are not as
able to produce as much milk."
After an initial session where experts from the
University of Florida answered questions regarding dairy
farming, attendees were taken into a field near the main
complex of Southpoint Dairy to. learn about foraging


Area farmers listen to a panel discussion on dairy farming at Chiefland's


options. Dr. Yoana Newman of the University of Florida
provided the briefing. Later, the group gathered inside
Chiefland's Tommy Usher Center for a discussion on body
conditions and disease considerations of dairy cows, led
by UF's Dr. Jan Shearer.
The day's activities provided a good learning
experience for the group, said Hardee County dairy farmer
Joe Nickerson. He added words of praise for Southpoint
Dairy owner Ron St. John.
"They have areal nice operation here, very impressive,"
he said. "We think there is a lot of opportunity to learn
and a lot of opportunity to move forward with something
like this. We are proud of Mr. St. John and the things he
is doing for the dairy business."
Tampa area dairy farmer Joe Aprile agreed.
"I have been in the dairy business for quite a number
of years," he said. "Mine is a different type of dairy, more
the conventional type, but I am always out looking at new
ideas. If we stay in the dairy business long term, maybe
we'll look at doing some of these rotational grazing
things."


Team Levy session focuses on Florida transportation


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Team Levy held its second session in the
Bronson Middle High School cafetorium
May 14.
An initiative of the Nature Coast
Business Development Council to ensure
smart growth in the future, Team Levy held
its first of four sessions of the year March 5,
focusing on sustainability in growth.
Last week's session, entitled
"Transportation and Supply Chain,"'
focused on how Levy County can best
transport goods, services and people within
and beyond the community, said Amanda
Douglas, executive director of Nature
Coast Business Development Council,
Inc. With new projects like the nuclear
power plant, the Tri-County Hospital and
a CFCC Levy campus facility slated for
construction in Levy County, Team Levy
brought together about 60 local officials,
business owners and concerned citizens to
discuss the growth impacts on the county
and how to maintain "what's precious"
in the natural environment. Among those
present were Inglis Mayor Bill Lake, Levy
County Commissioner Nancy Bell, Director
of the CFCC Levy Center Rayanne Giddis,
Yankeetown Mayor Dawn Marie Clary, and
Levy County Planning Director Shenley
Neely.
Don Upton, president of Team Levy's
consultant team Fairfield Index, moderated
the session and introduced the two key
speakers: John Kaliski, principal with
Cambridge Systematics, Inc., a leader
in transportation innovative policy and
planning solutions, and Jim Ely, executive
director and CEO of Florida's Turnpike
Enterprise.
Kaliski spoke first and presented facts
and projections on how Florida's population
will increase and how metropolitan regions
will expand and affect smaller communities
like Levy County.
By 2050, Florida will function as one
large mega-region, in other words, a
network of metro areas that function as
one economic, environmental, cultural and
functional unit, much like the Tampa Bay
and south Florida areas, Kaliski said.
"How does Levy County fit in as places
to the south are moving in," he said.
By 2035, there will be a projected 595
million tons of freight moving to, from and
within the central Florida super region,

Services in Williston.


which is an increase of about double from
2003, he said.
The next speaker, Jim Ely, spoke on
how freight as well as people will move
throughout the state. Ely has been with
the Department of Transportation for 35
years and has been the director of Florida's
Turnpike for the last 20 years.
There are over 700 miles of toll roads
in Florida and over $10 billion invested in
user-financed facilities, he said.
The Florida Turnpike is the largest toll
road in Florida with over 2 million drivers
a day, he said.
Ely reminded everyone that there is no
such thing as a free road.
Most roads are paid for through
mandatory gas taxes, but turnpikes, which
are optional roadways, are funded by tolls


and help relieve congestion on the other
roadways, he said.
"The gas tax is based on a funding source
that is going down," Ely said. Consumption
of gas and diesel is decreasing because
price of fuel is increasing, which results
in less driving and less tax money for road
development.
The economy is also the reason for the
suspension of the Suncoast Parkway 2, the
extension of the Suncoast Parkway to US-
19 near Inglis.
After the speakers, groups were formed
to answer four key questions prepared by
Team Levy: what were the key insights
from the discussions, what areas of interest
should Team Levy follow up on, what
should Team Levy provide data on, and
how should Team Levy provide working


statements on Levy County potential
priorities.
Amanda Douglas, executive director
of Nature Coast' Business Development
Council, Inc., said the session had a great
turnout.
"We're trying to open up the floodgates
and bring in as many people from the
community as we can," she said after the
session.
With all the new developments going on
in the area and projects being pushed back,
it's important to keep updated on the future,
she said.
Drawing on updated projects and
bringing in as many from 'the community
as possible, Progress Energy Florida,
was invited to inform Team Levy on the
nuclear power plant project at the end of
the meeting.
Carla Groleau, community relations
manager for Progress Energy Florida,
shared the newest announcement that the
Levy nuclear plant's schedule was shifted
back by a minimum of 20 months.
"Unfortunately, the NRC determination
that the excavation foundation prep work
will not be able to be conducted until we
receive our combined operating license,"
basically pushes back the schedule by about
20 months, according to Groleau, and they
expect to receive that license in late 2011
or early 2012.
There was also a presentation on the
Virtual Entrepreneur Center, a Web site
that provides listings and resources for
entrepreneurs. MichaelA. Zaharios, Florida
Virtual Entrepreneur Center Site Manager
with Daytona State College told Team Levy
about the free "one-stop-shop library" that
provides information and resources for
those looking to start, increase or relocate a
business within the central Florida area.
The Web site, www.flvec.com, targets
users such as: business development
counseling centers, economic development
organizations, business incubators
and entrepreneur centers, chambers of
commerce, business schools, and of course
entrepreneurs, he said.
All in all, the Team Levy session lasted
from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Douglas wanted to
remind everyone that the session minutes
will be available online next week, at www.
naturecoast.org/team-levy.html.
Team Levy's third session will be held
August 13 and focus on "Levy County's
Target Industries and Jobs of the Future."

Chiefland FFA Banquet honors best, brightest


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Chiefland High School FFA held its annual awards
banquet on May 12, with Chase Home receiving the Star
Chapter Farmer award, Rheba Sheffield the Star Greenhand
award, and Hailey Bason the Star Discovery award.
Those are the three top awards in FFA at the local level,
with Star Chapter Farmer representing the top individual
student in the senior chapter, Star Greenhand as the most
active 9h-grade FFA member, and Star Discovery, a new
award for the middle school FFA member who shows the
most commitment to the program.
The awards ceremony capped a busy year for the chapter,
which competed in 15 career development events, hosted
its first=fishing tournament, took 50 students to the Sunbelt
Agricultural Exposition, constructed floats for the Chiefland
Watermelon Festival and CHS homecoming parade,
participated in the Toys-for-Tots Program and hosted more
than 150 kindergartners on a Farm Day Tour.
FFA members attended seven different leadership
conferences, including the state and National FFA convictions
as well as having three members serve above the chapter
level.
Home, senior class president, was selected Star Chapter
Farmer for his outstanding achievement in Supervised
Agricultural Experience. He had a major impact on the
chapter. He has been an active FFA member for six years,
participated in career development events and attended
leadership workshops and the state convention while
maintaining an excellent grade point average. He has
completed the Agriscience Education program at CHS.
Sheffield was selected Star Greenhand because of
her strong supervised agricultural experience program.
Sheffield demonstrated leadership skills inside and outside
the chapter. Sheffield was described as a "role model to all
younger FFA members and a credit to our organization."!
Her dedication to excellence was evidenced by her success
in school work, supervised agricultural experience and
leadership development.
The National FFA has established a new award for first
year FFAmembers. Bason was selected for the Star Discovery
Award. The recipient must demonstrate commitment to FFA
and their school work. They must exhibit leadership skills
and the drive for personal growth. They are judged by their
grades in agriculture class as well as other classes at school,
participation in FFA activities at the chapter level and above,
and their leadership skills in and out of school.
' The chapter also awarded State FFA Degrees to four
students. The State FFA Degree is above the chapter level
and is considered a high achievement. Zachary Andrews,
Chase Home, Brittany Davis and Tyler Johnson will be
given their State FFA Degree at the State FFA Convention
in June.
The Chiefland FFA Chapter also honored one of its most
committed leaders with a rare Lifetime Alumni award. It
went to Dan Faircloth.
From 1,970 to 1984 Faircloth served as an agriculture
teacher at CHS. During that time, many changes occurred.
Girls were allowed to join FFA and he advised the first female
officer in the Chiefland FFA chapters. Also, a new land lab
was purchased, which he helped develop with Faye Portia
Sache. He coached a state-winning poultry team. He was
instrumental in chartering the Chiefland Jr. FFA chapter and
served as an advisor to the State FFA President and National
FFA President Chris Hardee.
Around 1984, Faircloth became dean of students for
CHS, assistant principal of Chiefland Middle School and
principal of Cedar Key School. In 2007 he returned to CHS.
The chapter wished him the best in his retirement. Faircloth
was presented a.plaque.
Carol Jones, director of career and technical programs for
the Levy County School District, was named an Honorary
Member of the Chiefland FFA. It was noted that Jones
has provided CHS students with "rigorous and relevant"
instruction to help them be successful in their future careers.
She has served as a judge for numerous FFA contests,
attended the State FFA Convention to support the chapter,
and given of her time and other resources to help the chapter
succeed.

School board decides against $11,000 accounting implementation


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The School Board of Levy County voted against
implementing the standard for the analysis of the subsidizing
of retirees' health plan at the school board meeting Tuesday.
The Governmental Accounting Standards Board issued
a statement requiring an "actuarial analysis to determine
whether our retiree health plan will generate a cost or liability
by providing either an explicit or implicit subsidy for the
retiree health benefits," according to a handout by Robert
Clemons, director of finance for the School Board
In other words, generally the retirees' cost of health
coverage is usually more than that of active employees. The
cost must be distinguished and covered by the employer if not
by the retiree, and the Governmental Accounting Standards
Board requires recognition of that subsidy.
"The services of an actuary are required to project future
costs and discount those costs back to the current period to
ascertain the true cost of the subsidy. The cost of this service
I


is projected at $11,000," according to the handout.
It illuminates the imputed value of health coverage for
retirees, Clemons said.
In the school board meeting held May 5, school board
members requested Clemons survey Florida school boards to
determine which are conducting the analysis.
The Standards Board has no enforcement power, but'
penalty for not complying with the statement can lead to
qualified audits and affect the school board's credit and bond
ratings, Clemons said.
Clemons reported at the meeting Tuesday that out of 10
school districts surveyed, seven responded that they were
planning on implementing the analysis, two are not, and one
replied "maybe." The two districts that are not are Gilchrist
and Dixie.
Clemons provided copies of the e-mails from the districts
responding to his survey.
According to the e-mail from David Dose, director of
finance for the Gilchrist County School Board: "There are no
plans to implement GASB 45 in Gilchrist this year. I could


not justify the cost of hiring an actuary to come up with a
number that doesn't mean anything to anyone and that no one
(except the auditors) will ever look at."
After presenting the survey results to the board, Clemons
recommended the board to approve the implementation.
"They take a pretty dim view of them not following their
standards," Clemons said.
Paige Brookins, school board member for District 4, made
the motion to not implement the standard. Beth Davis, school
board member for District 2, seconded the motion.
After further discussion, the board voted and agreed
unanimously against implementation.
"This is a tight-budget year," Brookins said after the
meeting. "I don't think we can spend the money now."
She said she doesn't doubt one single bit Clemons is
looking out for what is best for the school board, but she
cannot see spending $11,000 right now.
"Every dollar counts," she said.
Clemons did not say whether he was disappointed with the
board's decision.

'70s TV



hadplenty



to offer

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I was all ready to head out to the theaters this
week to see the new Star Trek movie when I stopped
dead in my tracks and reminded myself of a very
relevant detail: I hate Star Trek.
I would never deny Star Trek lovers their time in
the sun. I am generally a live and let live kind of guy.
If a person gets into that sort of thing, then great.
Have at it. I just never got into Spock's pointed ears
or the funny-looking villains or whatever special
appeal William Shatner had when playing Captain
Kirk. It just wasn't for me.
So, as a youngster growing
up in the '70s, I would usually
pass right by Star Trek on the
television dial to get to any of a
dozen or so wonderful shows. I
would get up off the couch and
go turn it to something else and
then head back to the couch to
enjoy lay selection.
And what a selection we had
back in those days.
Gilligan's Island was my personal favorite.
NoWi that was entertainment. Perfectly cast with an
engaging plot in a tropical setting, that show was
fun and full of side-plots. Gilligan vs. the Skipper.
The dorkiness of the Professor. The age-old "guy
question" of Who is more appealing Ginger or
Maryann.
My favorite episode? When they found plastic
explosives on the island and a monkey started
throwing them around, blowing things up. Hilarity
ensued.
Those guys battled just about every conceivable
obstacle in trying to get back to civilization, and
came up short every time. You wanted them to make
it, but, secretly, you wanted them to fail. They make
it back aTid'ydtvaretstuck wwatchiig Jeannie.
I Dream of Jeannie was my second-favorite show
of the '70s. Let's face it who among us does not
secretly want a genie, one played by Barbara Eden?
I know I do, and I did so back then. Bossman giving
you problems? Have your genie put a billygoat in his
office. That's what Jeannie did to Tony's boss, Dr.
Bellows, on my favorite episode. The whole world
laughed. Well, several of us in Jasper laughed. We
laughed a lot those days in Jasper, but not as much
when we were watching Bewitched.
Bewitched was only so so I Dream of Jeannie
with a twist. The lead character was Samantha, a
witch, played by Elizabeth Montgomery. Instead of
blinking to make things happen, she would wriggle
her nose. Throw in a nosy neighbor, and you have
Bewitched.
There was something unsettling about Samantha's
husband Darren though. I never liked Darren, and
neither did Samantha's mother, Endora, also a witch.
Endora made Darren's ears grow huge on my favorite
episode, and we all laughed so hard milk came out
our noses, which happened often in Jasper.
We had it all cleaned up, however, by the time
The Brady Bunch came on. The Brady Bunch was
serious television, and you did not want to be caught
without a television when it came time for the show
to start. What a premise for a show. Guy with three
sons marries a woman with three daughters, and they
live in a giant house with a goofy maid who dates a
butcher.
I fell hard for Marcia, just like the rest of you. So,
when Peter hit her in the face with the football and
made her nose look like a cucumber, I vowed to find
that young man and punch his lights out. That never
happened because another show came along that
captured my attention. Happy Days.
Happy Days spoke to me. It spoke to all of us.
Richie Cunningham and his buddies Potsie and
Ralph Malph were always getting into trouble, just
like us. Often times, their ultra-cool role model, The
Fonz, would bail them out. Then he'd yell "Hey,"
and flash his trademark thumbs-up signal, like he did
on my favorite episode, when Richie and Potsie used
fake IDs to get into a burlesque show.
We all sat back and hoped to be cool one day like
The Fonz, leather jacket and all. Then one day we


all found out that the guy who played The Fonz on
television was the biggest nerd on the planet, and our
worlds came crashing in.
But not as big as the nerds who followed Star
Trek. I hated that show, and to this day cringe when
I see it on the television. And on the big screen in a
theater? No thanks I'd probably be stuck behind
some guy with pointed ears.
I'll stick with the normal shows about castaways
and genies and leather jackets.

Federal leaders doing nothing


to regulate oil trading, high prices


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


gallon since January of this year. It means the
pirates in the New York and Chicago oil futures
markets have added about $9 to my bill each
time I fill up at the gasoline pump. Please don't tell me it's
free enterprise and the American way. It's stealing.
The average price per gallon for regular gasoline last
week rose to about $2.25 per gallon. In late December and
early January prices plummeted to the $1.60 range and
people were beginning to believe we still had a government
in place that cared about how much they paid at the pumps.
We don't.
When I was a teen-ager and for many years later the
price of gasoline was fairly stable. The price was very low
compared to today. But something has changed over the
years. The American government needs to gain control of
oil and gas pricing and oil futures' trading.
It's true I tend to ranteand rave in this column about
excessively high gasoline and diesel prices, but I make no
apologies. I believe Congress and President Obama should
get off their duffs and take back the oil futures markets from
the thieves who are gouging Americans at the gas and diesel
pumps.
I read an interesting column published on July 8, 2008
on CNNMoney.com concerning oil speculation and why it
needs to be regulated and understood better. The column
said the number of "paper oil barrels" traded daily on the
New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) is more than
three times the number of physical barrels consumed daily
worldwide. Something is wrong with that picture.
We might as well say these paper barrels of oil are cyber
barrels of oil. They exist only in the computers of oil futures
traders. Many believe the manipulation of these paper
barrels of oil on the futures markets is artificially driving up
crude oil and gasoline prices.
The CNNMoney columnist, Nomi Prins, who wrote the
column, said supply and demand for real oil (physical oil)
has remained fairly stable. In 2005, global oil production
was 84.6 million barrels per day and consumption was at

Letter to


83.6 million barrels. Today those numbers are 86.5 million
and 86.4 million. So why are prices so much higher?
Prins said the problem is the futures markets have
become so,big, and the trading rules in the markets so lax,
that it's not easy to dismiss the claim that the markets are
. being manipulated by speculators. He notes that the 2000
"Enron Loophole" created by Congress made it easier
for savvy traders to buck the system. It also exempted
the entire over-the-cotnter electronic exchanges from
regulatory oversight by the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission.
In addition, Prins said the 1936 Commodity Futures
Exchange Act, which once curtailed excessive speculation,
was changed by the Enron Loophole. It redefined who
a speculator was, and more importantly, who wasn't a
speculator. Prins said the loophole made it possible for
investment banks to avoid speculation limits by making
certain claims.
U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Susan Collins
R-Maine, last year presented three proposals to regulate
oil prices, promising more legislation after the July 4
holiday. The legislation would have closed the Enron
Loophole, capped the total amount of speculation allowed
per commodity, and cut back commodity investments for
institutions like pension funds.
"If all three proposals were enacted, they would promote
sorely lacking transparency in the futures market' If
speculation isn't driving spot oil prices, the laws would have
no effect on them. But to the extent that something funky
is going on in the futures market, a clearer picture of the
market's participants and of oil's true value would emerge.
That might help an ailing economy," Prins wrote.
Judging from this week's gasoline prices, the legislation
never passed.
In the past I have taken a rather cynical view of oil price
regulation. I don't think it exists. The federal government
seemed to have no qualms about taking over some of the
biggest banks in the nation when they were failing last
year. It seems to me they could subdue the greed in the oil
markets by intervening in the same way.

Cartoon was in bad taste


In response to the cartoon published in last weeks issue
of the Journal, each viewer is free to interpret what they
may. The intent may have been to discredit the radical
statements by our new Chairman of Homeland Security,
the membership of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5625,
takes issue with the portrayal that, we are comprised of
decrepit old men with no purpose except to fry fish. This
cartoon would have been better left out of our community
newspaper that has long been a supporter of all local
veterans organizations, or at least, no choose one particular
group to degrade.
It is so important that the younger men and women
returning from war, join our ranks and carry the torch
that we have supported for the past 110 years. We are
approaching our year end, and for the 2008-09 year,
we have contributed in excess of $40,000 to the youth,
community and veterans of this area. We will fry fish, offer
poppies, hold bake sales, yard sales, golf tournaments, and
so on, to enable us to continue this practice. Our Honor
Guard travels on a regular basis to the three counties and


beyond to bury your dead with honors. We visit the area
nursing homes, both VA Hospitals and every school in the
same three counties. We march in your parades, furnish,
dedicate and retire your Flags, honor your Civil Servants,
Political Leaders, Scouts, JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, FFA,
Jake's Kids and youth sports. We employ the largest
lobbying and legislative representatives in the country to
work for veterans benefits.
More importantly ... our members have served this
country on foreign soil, in times of war. You do not qualify
for membership in the VFW by simply completing basic
training, serving states side or frying fish. Yes, we are aging
and tired ... we need all the help, and appreciate all the
respect, we can get from our "Grateful Nation," and the
cartoon mentioned was in bad taste, and disrespectful of our
organization of worthy veterans.

Respectfully,
Wayne Carrigan, Commander
VFW Post 5625 Chiefland, Florida

Witt, from Page 9A


Anyone who believes oil and gas are -
like bread and butter is slightly wacky.
We can live without bread and butter, but
oil and gas drive the American economy
and the world economy. When oil, gas and
diesel prices rise, as they have in the past
year, they become a drag on the economy.
They become a tax, levied by the markets.
It's not a government tax. It's a private tax.
But it's a tax nonetheless.
I realize President Obama has only
been in office four months, but he is
beginning to look like a real moron when
it comes to offering leadership on fuel
prices. The Democratically-led Congress
is even worse. I picture Obama and
members of Congress sitting on their
hands and staring into space wishing for
something to happen with energy policy.
One has to have a good imagination about
energy policy because nothing is coming
out of Washington these days regarding
that weighty issue.
If gasoline and diesel prices continue
to rise across our nation, the national


economy will cool down once again a
people will stop spending and invest
Businesses will respond by laying-ofl
more workers, downsizing, and in sor
cases, closing down. That's how risin
fuel prices could affect our economy.
Any hope of an economic recovery cc
vanish.
I wonder sometimes when I see Ot
on television if he has even the slight(
clue about how devastating these fuel
prices can be for the American econoi
and for the average person. I wonder
cares. He has been in office four monl
and hasn't said a word about prices
at the pump. Congress has been
equally silent. They treat rising gas
and diesel prices as though it's just
a spike in the free market. But they
are completely delusional if they
believe that.
There's nothing free about
having to pay $2.25 for a gallon
of regular gas. We are a captive
market. Consumers have no


and choice but to buy gasoline and diesel at
ng. excessively high price prices. If they were
" to choose to cut back on their consumption
ne and drive less, the economy would shrink
g apd the recession would grow worse.
I can only hope that the Democrats in
would control of the White House and Congress
realize how deeply Americans hate high
bama gasoline and diesel prices. As I have said
est before, I believe'the Democrats will pay
a big price in the 2010 congressional
my elections if high fuel prices continue at
if he the pump. The decision by Congress and
ths



A V






E**
'n -elks

rl"nor


the president to keep lax regulations will
be politically costly. Their decision not to
encourage more domestic exploration and
drilling for oil will cost them votes.
I think American voters know stupidity
when they see it. They know inaction
when they see it. They know when federal
lawmakers are not in their comer. They
know lack of leadership when they see it.
It's time for leadership on energy prices.
It's time to grow a brain.
The Democrats are in charge. Let's see
what they can do ... or not.
