Postal



workers



lose jobs

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A year-long ordeal for former postal workers
Bonnie George and Debbie Hamberger has ended
with George being terminated and Hamberger
being forced into early retirement.
George and Hamberger said they are
whistleblowers who were punished for reporting
the actions of Chiefland postmasters to the Postal
Service in Washington:
Kim Poole, a co-worker, resigned earlier when
she said aggressive postal inspectors attempted to
pressure her into giving false testimony against
Hamberger and George.
George attempted to challenge her suspension
though a grievance process, but a national arbitrator
for the Postal Service ruled against her and upheld
the post office's decision to terminate her.
"The Post Office should understand they kicked
us, but we're not down," George said. "It was very,
very, very hasty." Ti

1950, Hurricane Easy hit Cedar Key with winds of at

ve the winds were much higher. The storm reportedly


circled Cedar Key three times. Damage was heavy. Many
residents rode out the storm at Cedar Key School atop of
a hill.
The last hurricane to strike the Levy County Coast was
Elena in 1985. The storm was born in the Atlantic Basin
and stalled for two days in the Gulf of Mexico 50 miles
off Cedar Key, dumping two' feet of rain on western and
central Levy County and lashing Cedar Key and Chiefland
with hurricane force winds.
That was 24 years ago.
Is Levy County due for another storm?
Not even famed meteorologist and hurricane forecaster
William Gray can answer that question.
Gray and fellow meteorologist Phil Kotzbach are
forecasting six Atlantic hurricanes this summer and 12

runs from June 1 through Nov. 30.
Hurricanes are circular storms with sustained winds of
at least 74 mph.

The gutted-out school buses
loaded with colorful, green
melons are on the roadways,
which can only mean it's that
time of year again: Watermelon
season.
From the moment the
season's first local watermelon
is sliced, summer can officially
be declared. From that point
on, the Chiefland community
scrambles to get the crop in
and prepare for the biggest
festival of the year.
The 55th annual Chiefland
Watermelon Festival,
sponsored by the Chiefland
Woman's Club, will be held
Saturday. Originally held in
1954 to celebrate the new
sidewalks in Chiefland, farmers
donated the watermelons left
over at the end of the season.
Now the festival is a tradition
to bring the community
together and pay tribute to the
summer's biggest fruit crop.
Saturday will be slammed

of the Watermelon Festival.

The rest of the day will be
celebrated with an introduction

the Watermelon Auction at

with seed spitting and
watermelon rolling contests at

Tillis, whd has been
the Watermelon Festival
chairwoman for the past two
years, said it was a tough year
for business because of the
economy, but the club worked
tirelessly to fine, tune the
festival and make it a success.
She remembers how the
festival was always such a
big deal during her childhood,
complete with sky divers, and
said they are working to make
it that way again.
"That's where it was at one
point and that's where we want
it to be again," she said.
The event is attended by
locals and out-of-towners
alike.

Gene and Rita Wealing feel they
have been blessed in life, having
owned an Indiana hardware store for
20 years, and having traveled much of
the country in an RV over a six-year
span.
Now, they say, it is time to give a
little back.
The Wealings, of Fanning Springs,
donated a home and an acre of land
to healthcare provider Haven Hospice
during a brief deed transaction
ceremony May 28 at Levy Abstract

The Wealings were joined at the
ceremony by a number of Haven

State senator passes bill to


collect DNA of accused felons


Terry Witt
Staff Writer


One of the nine bills passed by State Sen.
Steve Oelrich in the spring session of the
Legislature would require DNA testing of
every person arrested for a felony.
Senate Bill 2276, awaiting the governor's
signature, requires law enforcement to take a
swab of DNA from the cheek of the person
charged with a felony at the time of their
arrest. DNA is the genetic code of a human
being. Every person has a unique DNA.
JessicaThrockmorton, Oelrich's legislative
aide, said while the NAACP opposed the
bill, -she said 37 states have passed similar
legislation. The legislation is intended to
correctly identify felony offenders and solve
crimes faster through DNA identification.
Throckmorton spoke to the Williston
Rotary Club last week.
Under current law, DNA is collected at the
time of conviction for all felonies and specific
misdemeanors. Oelrich's bill moves the time
frame up to take DNA tests at the time of a
felony arrest.
There will be a phase-in schedule where
persons arrested for specific felony charges
will be required to provide DNA samples to
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
It creates a statewide automated personal
identification system capable of classifying,
matching and storing analyses of DNA and
other data.
Oelrich, R-Gainesville, has served in the
State Senate, District 14, since 2006. District


14 encompassesAlachua, Bradford, Gilchrist,
Union, Levy, Columbia, Marion and Puftam
Counties. He was sheriff of Alachua County
for 14 years.
His office staff will begin holding
monthly office hours in Levy County on the
second Tuesday of each month beginning
June 9.,Those hours are 9 a.m.-12 noon in
the Levy County Courthouse and 1-4 p.m. in
the Williston Annex Building.
Persons interested in meeting with staff
may set an appointment time by calling (352)
375-3555.
Oelrich chairs the Senate's higher
education committee. Throckmorton said
that works out well for the senator,
since he lives near the University of Florida.
He is vice chair of military affairs and
domestic security and also serves on general
government appropriations, commerce,
communications, energy and public
utilities, the Joint Legislative Committee
on Everglades Oversight, and the Policy
and Steering Committee on Government
Operations.
The Legislature this year passed, a bill to
purchase 73,000 acres of former sugar cane
farm land for $536 million with options to
purchase an additional 107,000 acres.
Oelrich also passed Senate Bill 262,
which allows community college board of
trustees to establish a transportation access
fee. In Gainesville, the legislation will allow
Santa Fe Community College students to use
the Regional Transit System. The cost will
be about $3 per semester.

'Hospice is a great organization."
Bowen said the property would be
put on the market and sold, and that 100
percent of the proceeds would support
unfunded patient care, services and
Programs provided by Haven Hospice
over an 18-county area.
"It is an incredibly generous gift that
the Wealings have given us," he said.
"I think it gives our staff of volunteers
in the community great confidence
in what we do. We are honored and
privileged to dare for people at a
very challenging point in their life.
And to be able to be supported by the
Wealings and others in the community,
it allows the staff at the bedside to do
the mission of the organization, and
that is to provide the care at a very
critical point and time.
"Without folks like the Wealings, We
would not be able to meet the mission.
So it is through their generosity and
the generosity of others that we are
able to do what it is that we are called
to do."

Bumble bees being used to pollinate local watermelon field


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Those curious green boxes resting on Murray Tillis' 80-acre watermelon
field near Chiefland Elementary School are buzzing with activity.
The boxes are filled with commercially-raised bumble bees for pollinating
the field of melons.
That's right, bumble bees, not honey bees.
Watermelon plants produce flowers when they reach maturity. The flowers
must be pollinated by bees to produce the sweet fruit grown by local farmers.
Honey bees have traditionally been used by local watermelon growers.
The farmers often rent hives from beekeepers. The bee hives are placed near
the fields in wooden boxes. The honey bees fly to and from the field from the
,boxes.
The bumble bees used by Tillis are housed in cardboard boxes engineered
with flight holes to allow the bees to exit and return to the hive. The boxes
.contain a sugar solution for the bees. The bee hives are in the boxes. The bees
live in the hives when they are not working in the field.
Tillis said he visited a Florida cucumber farm last year and observed
a bumble bee operation. The pollination technique worked well for the
cucumbers and he decided to try it for himself. He bought the bumble bees
from Koppert Biological Systems based in the Netherlands. The cost of the
bees was no more than what he would have spent renting honey bee hives. He
said he can't always get honey bees when he needs them, and that can be a
problem. If a field begins to produce flowers, the bees are needed immediately.
Honey bees can fly as far as three miles, and the watermelon is not their
;flower of choice, Tillis said. Honey bees communicate, and if one bee finds
flowers it likes better than watermelons, it can draw other honey bees to its
location, taking them away from their primary target.
Honey bees like nectar rather than pollen, Tillis said, and it takes five to
seven visits by a honey bee to pollinate a flower. It takes two or three visits
by a bumble bee, and the bumble bee is looking strictly for pollen. Tillis said
honey bees are subject to disease.
The flying range of the bumble bees Tillis is using is about 330 feet for
each cardboard box placed in the field. The boxes were placed far enough
away from the elementary school to protect the children. Tillis didn't want any
children being stung. The field appears to be producing watermelons.
"From what I see there's a good set of watermelons," Tillis said.
He won't know how many watermelons the field produced until he
calculates total pounds per acre. Only then can he determine how well the
,bumble bees performed their work.
Tillis also used the bees to pollinate a small field of watermelon and
cantaloupe at a different location. He reported good results. The field is
,producing quality fruit for the Tillis watermelon stand along U.S. 27A east of
Chiefland. He used the same spacing for the boxes.
When the bees have done their jobs and the watermelon season is over, the
,hives will die off, according to Tillis. He will have to buy more bumble bees
next year, assuming the production was good enough on all the fields to justify
using the bees again.
Koppert describes itself as an international market leader in the field of
biological crop protection and natural pollination.

festival, she said.
Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce
,Executive Director Janet Minor said the festival
-brings in "fruit gypsies," tourists who travel around
looking for fruit festivals.
She said she gets calls on a daily basis from
potential festival visitors, and she uses the opportunity
'to encourage them to visit the local attractions, like
the springs and antique stores.
"It's a real opportunity for us to introduce the
place," Minor said.
Just like they say impressions are made within
the first 30 seconds of meeting someone, the same
can be said of a city and events, she said. It's an
important festival and Chiefland visitors are aware
of the entertainment opportunities in the area, and
the Watermelon Festival is just that opportunity.
Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy grew up attending
the festival, participating in the parade for the first
time at age 5 and riding in it again this year on the
city's float.
Although law prohibits it now, the gopher tortoise
race used to be part of the festival, and Pomeroy
remembers catching a tortoise 'every year and
entering it in the race.
But his favorite part of the day has always been
the free watermelon.

"It's a lot of work for these farmers and they bring
a lot of commerce to this area for 30 days," Tillis
said. "The festival celebrates what the watermelon
does for the community for 30 days."
"It's nice that we still have an agricultural segment
in our economy here, and it's a good way to celebrate
it," Pomeroy said.

Bell was the fourth of six living children. She
was married to Albert Montgomery Moore.
Her husband and siblings (Rebecca, Elbert M,
Bloxton, Archie and Irene) predeceased her.
Carrie was a hard worker who raised row
crops and peddled then at the market. At family
hog killing time, Carrie was assigned to prepare
the large dinner fixed for all who worked at
the event. She would have fried livers, lights,
onions, and haslets cooked down to serve over
rice; backbone and rice; sweet tea; cornbread
and biscuits. There was always a pie made from
canned fruit from the past season. At the end
of the day while the cracklings were cooking
down to render lard and the sausage had all been
stuffed into the lining of pig's small intestine
and hung in the smoke house with hams and
bacon slabs, each family that helped would
get their large' white enamel wash pan of fresh
meat. SOmebody would play a guitar and all
would sit around the fire feeling they had made
a contribution to feeding the family again.
She grunted worms, harvested moss, worked
in nursing homes, did housekeeping, cooked
and waited tables in restaurants, and raised
doves to sell. She followed her husband across
Florida in a travel trailer when he was building
roads. She enjoyed waking up in a new place as
long as she could fish. Whatever was needed to
support herself, she did. She never drank, was
always of a slim build and was a good dedicated
employee.
Carrie's favorite pastime was fishing and her
favorite meal was fried fish, grits, sweet tea,
biscuits and chocolate pudding. She enjoyed
people visiting and having long conversations,
preferably outside where she could enjoy a dip
of snuff. She was a great story teller and saw
many things in her 101 years in Levy County.
She lived on her own until April of this year
when she moved to a nursing home in Williston,
Fla.
She will be buried Thursday, June 4, 2009,
at 3 p.m. at Long Pond Cemetery west of
Chiefland off the Cedar Key Highway. Obituary
information was collected by stories she told
to her great-niece Agnes Diane Griffin Schultz
during the past couple of years over lunches


out (fried quail or fish), country drives to the
Suwannee River, Fowlers bluff, Cedar Keys, old
cemeteries, and overnight visits in Homosassa.
Arrangements are under the care of Knauff

Former school board

member arrested for

mortgage fraud

Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Former Levy County School Board member Billey Ray
Morrison has been arrested again, this time on a charge of
felony mortgage fraud.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office said Morrison
allegedly forged his wife's name on a $50,000 loan at
Perkins State Bank where he was formerly employed as the
Bronson branch manager.
Morrison resigned from his school board position
earlier this year after accepting deferred prosecution in a,
case where he was accused of committing a lewd act in a
public bathroom on Oct. 11, 2008.
The plea deal allowed Morrison to avoid criminal,
prosecution on a misdemeanor criminal charge, but he(
is now charged with two felonies in a second unrelated.'
case. He was arrested on a charge of committing mortgage;
fraud and fraud impersonation using or possession the;
identification of another.
Sheriffs investigators said Morrison's wife Judy
uncovered the mortgage problem. She had filed for divorce'
from her husband and while preparing and researching'
paperwork for the divorce found two loans her husband had"
received from Perkins State Bank in her name.
She told investigators the signature on the first loan for
$100,000 was hers, but that her husband had given her facts
that were untruthful as to why she was being asked to sign
the paperwork. She told investigators she knew nothing
about the $100,000.
Mrs. Morrison told investigators she did not sign.:
the second $50,000 loan. She said without question th&
signature on the loan application was not hers.

Postal, frorh Page 1A


They learned later that Dickert accused
George of making a threat against her during the
conversation at the park, a charge that George,
Hamberger and Poole flatly rejected as untrue.
They said Dickert was never threatened. They
said it was a friendly conversation.
But Tyler said the arbitrator didn't believe
the three women.
"The issue is the issue of credibility," he
said.
George and Hamberger said they acted as
Whistleblowers in a case that resulted in former
Chiefland postmaster John Gainey accepting
voluntary reassignment to a new job with the
Postal Service.
The two women also said they were
whistleblowers when former Chiefland
Postmaster Vickie Smith began charging late
fees for past due box rentals that were 'not
authorized. The Postal Service said Smith
received misinformation in a training session
about late fees. She rescinded the late fees. She
no longer works at the Chiefland Post Office.
S"We're whistleblowers and I'm not ashamed
of what I did," George said.


Hamberger had worked at the Chiefland Post
Office for 33 years, George for 12 years and
Poole for 12 years. Hamberger and George were.
making $52,000 annually at the time they lost
their jobs.
They thanked the community for the
"enormous support" they received throughout
the past year, but Hamberger had harsh words
for the Postal Service.
"There were no threats made in the Park or
the Post Office," Hamberger wrote in a statement
for the Journal. "We dealt with the Post Office
mafia and lost, plain and simple. But I will never
compromise my integrity and beliefs for anyone.
That, I will always stand firm on."
Hamberger said she and George were branded
as troublemakers by the Postal Service because
they did the right thing. Hamberger said the last
18 years she worked for five postmasters,and 11
officers-in-charge. She said an officer-in-charge
is "a postmaster wannabe."
"Chiefland (post office) was always a training
ground.'I always said it was a training ground for
idiots," Hamberger wrote.

Capacity crowd roars


for Bronson graduate

T hey crowded into the Bronson Middle/High School Cafetorium Saturday
educators.and fellow students, along with parents, neighbors and friend
of this year's 67 graduates. By the time they had all settled in, there was
barely room for the graduates themselves. ,
A standing-room only crowd waved and cheered as the seniors filed into the
room and later listened to speeches by 2009 Valedictorian Sarah Parkin and
Salutatorian Christine Schroeder. Among the dignitaries in attendance were Levyi
County Schools Superintendent Bob Hastings, Assistant Superintendent Jeff
Edison, and Bronson Middle/High School Principal Valerie Boughanem.
Parkin,.who plans to attend the University of South Florida, provided an
eloquent conclusion to more than a dozen years of education for the BHS class oi
2009.
"Thinking back to the first day of kindergarten for me is like viewing a dusty,.
stylish black and white film, a moment in time that was so long ago, but feels lik
was yesterday," she said. "Fast-forwarding to this moment is like entering a surr
dream, a dream that I think is different for all of us."
Parkin, who moments earlier had joined other seniors in performing with
the BHS Symphonic Band for the final time, said for some of the seniors, the
graduation served as a "moment of success and closure," and for others just the
beginning. "For many," she added, "it is a dream long overdue." ,: a
-Looking back, she continued, the Bronson High School experience amountec
much ifore than four years of education.
"It was the most complexcomposition of our lives," she said, "full of intricq0
harmonies, overlapping melodies ... somehow uniquely and eloquently creating
one of the most intensely unforgettable soundtracks of our lives, a soundtrack ~t
perfectly accompanies our field that now blossoms with color." e
Earlier, BHS' Chelsea Greek read a list of senior awards and scholarships, -
followed by a lighthearted speech by Schroeder. c
"I was so excited and thrilled to be one of the top students in my class," shSe
said. "And then I was like 'Oh darn, I have to give a speech.'
"What I am hoping for is a couple of laughs and a couple of applause aftq
everything I say, and then I will feel better."
The audience accommodated her with a thunderous round of applause.

Williston fills Phillips


Center for 2009 grads

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor
If the town of Williston seemed particularly quiet Monday evening, it was
probably because most of the residents had crowded into the University of
Florida's Phillips Center to. witness the graduation ceremony of Williston
High School's class of 2009.
And it was anything but quiet in the Phillips Center.
Nearly 130 seniors received their diplomas before a crowd of educators, family
and friends, including Levy County Schools Superintendent Bob Hastings, Assistant
Superintendent Jeff Edison, and WHS Principal John Lott.
Lott recognized several groups of graduates to begin the evening, including
the class of 2009's top 10 students, its academic scholarship recipients, its athletic
scholarship recipients, and those students who have opted for a career in the
military.
In addition to'the presentation of diplomas, the crowdheard speeches from no less
than four students Co-Valedictorians Stephanie Cuello and T\ rie Bo\ er, along with
SalutatorianArielle Claude and Class President Tyler Brooks.
Cuello, who will attend the University of Florida and plans to become an
international journalist had plenty of advice for her fellow seniors.
"Find out who you really are, not the person other people want you to be," she
said. "Go out, take risks, find opportunities, and if an opportunity does not exist,
create one yourself."
Boyer, who will also attend UF, had kind words for his family -- personally
thanking father Ken, mother Mary Lee, brother Kenneth and sister Julie for their
help and guidance.
"I am so blessed and so thankful to call myself a'Boyer," he said as his mother
wiped tears, from her eyes.
Boyer also spoke fondly of the Williston High School baseball team, where he
played for four years.

few technical difficulties couldn't put a damper on the crowd
S/ at the Cedar Key School graduation Saturday morning. In
Fact, at times it even lightened the mood.
A When the Pomp and Circumstance music ran out with two
graduates still left to march, family members jumped in, humming the
familiar notes so that the seniors wouldn't have to walk to their seats in
silence.
After the impromptu song and all the seniors had taken their seats,
the valedictorian and salutatorian each addressed their graduating class
of 18 and the loved ones who had gathered in the Cedar Key School
gymi to witness the happy event.
Valedictorian Lindsay Edmunds spoke directly to her classmates
and wished them all the best in their lives after high school.
SShe reminded them of the amazing times they had together at Cedar
(ey School and said as a class they never let adversities get them
lown.
"Don't tell me the sky's the'limit when there are footprints on the
ioon," she said, quoting lyrics by Brandt Paul.
Salutatorian Joseph Bishop took his turn at the microphone next,
id his mother couldn't help but shed a few tears as she watched her
.n from the second row.
"Wherever you go, whatever you do, give it your all," Bishop said
his fellow seniors.
The sense of community was apparent as the presentation of
Tolarships began when over 25 scholarships, most locally backed,
re handed out to the class.
Edmunds and Bishop took home close to 10 scholarships each.
iduate Jordan Watson was awarded for her volunteer work with the

t is our time to shine the Class of 2009."
The Chiefland High School graduating class of 2009's motto was put to the test and passed
with flying colors Friday night during their graduation ceremony at C. Doyle McCall Field at
Wayne Pridgeon Stadiuth in Chiefland.
Hundreds of family and friends crowded in with cameras at the ready to watch the seniors accept
their high school diplomas.
Graduating senior Zachary Tyson performed the musical reflection dedicated to the graduating
class, their parents, faculty and staff. "The Journey" lyrics were written by his mother, Becky Tyson,
and Zachary wrote the rpusic.
Several senior speakers took turns at the podium addressing the audience and fellow classmates.
Speakers included Senior Class Secretary Brittany Davis, Student Government Association
President Dane Cothron, Senior Class President Katherine Bowker, Senior Class Treasurer
Jamiee Thomas, Senior Class Vice President Cassandra Cummings, Salutatorian El-Som Wong,
Valedictorian Rebekka Wilkerson and the benediction by Maegan Brock.
Cothron told a story about the wagon he loaded up with toys and treasures and pulled everywhere
as a child. He said high school was a lot like that wagon.
"Our teachers have tried to load our wagons with everything we need to be successful," he said.
"It's not up to our teachers anymore to fill up our wagons; it's up to us."
Wong talked about his transition to Chiefland when he started attending Chiefland Middle School
in sixth grade and how high school was a "roller coaster" of emotions, mixed with excitement and
apprehension.
"Chiefland High School has been the common thread that has given meaning to our lives,"
Salutatorian El-Som Wong said.
When addressing the class's future as individuals, Wong borrowed a quote from one of his
favorite teachers Don Stewart: "I give 110 percent every day. I expect the same out of you."
Valedictorian Rebekka Wilkerson reminded her classmates to celebrate what's important in life:
friends and family.
Take the time to relax, smile, and laugh, she said. Spend time with loved ones and thank them for
their support through the years.
Once diplomas were handed out, the seniors lined up along the track facing the audience. The
class of 2009 was officially introduced as graduates, and caps flew in the air against the background
of the setting sun before proud family members and friends swarmed the track and field to take
pictures and give hugs.

Mr. Obama


should not


surprise


anyone

By Rick Burnham
Editor

If this whole mess we find ourselves
in with Barack Obama surprises
you in any way whatsoever,
you were obviously not paying
attention. There were plenty of signs that
virtually everything that has happened,
would happen.
Did your jaw drop last week when
he noininated Sonia Sotomayor to take-
David Souter's place on the Supreme
Court, even though she had a clear
history of racially-charged decisions
and comments to her credit? It shouldn't
have. For more than 20 years, Mr. Obama
was a member of Trinity United Church
of Christ in Chicago, a church that called
itself "Unashamedly Black" and one
that saw sermon after sermon promoting
African Americans over other races.
The Reverend Jeremiah Wright went as
far as to say that the U.S. government
was responsible for the spread of AIDS
in the black community.
To his credit, Obama resigned
from the church, but only when his
political aspirations began to suffer
He said he had not been present when
any controversial sermons were given.
(Also, the moon is.made out of cheese,
and Chiefland is getting an NBA team.)
So having been in a racist church,
would it not make sense that he would
nominate an alleged racist to the
Supreme Court?
And would it not make sense that the
United States is becoming a socialist
republic at an alarmingly fast pace under
Barack Obama? The government now
practically owns a number of banks and
two car companies General Motors
and Chrysler. Billions and billions have
been poured into those entities, and
billions and billions more will go their
way in the weeks and months ahead.
Meanwhile, people who jumped in
over their heads and bought homes they
could not afford have been bailed out at
the expense of those who took a more
responsible economic route living
within.their means.
And the 800-pound gorilla state-
run healthcare looms on the horizon..
This, in just a little more than four
months. In four years or God forbid
eight we will be 100 percent socialist,
with little hope for ever returning to
freedom and liberty for all.
Does any of this surprise you? It
shouldn't.
The president's childhood mentor
Frank Marshall Davis,. was publicly
identified as a member of the Communist
Party USA. Obama refers to the man
repeatedly in his book "Dreams From
My Father," listening to his poetry and
getting career advice from the man.
Obama also admits in his books that he
attended socialist conferences and read
"Marxist literature."
So having had clear and indisputable
connections to socialism in early life,
is it really any surprise at all that the
country is headed toward European
socialism?
And is it really any surprise at all
at how many individuals in this man's
administration, and others who were
nominated to join the administration,
have broken the law?'
Tom Daschle, the nominee to head
the Department of Health and Human
Services failed to pay his taxes. So did
Timothy Geithner, who was appointed
Secretary of the Treasury. And Nancy
Killefer, appointed by Obama to be the
country's "performance czar."
Rep. Hilda Solis' nomination to
become Labor Secretary was sidetracked
amid allegations of improprieties


involving taxes.
Surprised? You shouldn't be. The
company kept by Mr. Obama has
long been shady, from his association
with Tony Rezko, who was convicted
of mail fraud, wire fraud, attempted
extortion and money laundering, to
his relationship with domestic terrorist
Bill Ayers. The mere fact that Obama

Is demand causing higher gas prices,


or is it lack of statesmen in Washington


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

One of the oddball things I've noticed lately on the
Internet is that economists say rising gasoline
prices are an indication the longest recession
since" World War II may be easing and causing
demand for.fuel to increase.
In other words economists believe the economically
damaging high fuel prices I've been seeing at the pump in
the last two weeks are being driven by consumer demand for
gas rather than by commodity speculators in the oil futures
market or by the oil dictatorships in the Middle East.
The supply and demand theory is pure fiction.
I think it's great the recession is ending, if in fact that
is true. I can't wait. But will the recovery occur if gasoline,
diesel and oil.prices continue to shoot through the roof this
summer? Prices at the pump last Wednesday were in the
$2.53 range for regular. Gas prices have risen about a dollar
since January.
The economic forecast by most economists is for the
recession to, ease at the end of summer and for gasoline
and diesel prices.to drop by then to around the $2 range. I
hope they are correct, but I fear the effects of a summer of
artificially inflated gas prices.
SA large part of what caused the worst recession in 60
years was the record prices for gasoline and diesel at the
pumps and the resulting loss of confidence in the American
economy and in the American government.
The inability of Americans to travel as a result of high
fuel prices and the downstream effect of job losses when the
economy slowed to a crawl could happen all over again if
prices begin to rise this summer over the $3 mark, or worse
yet if prices approach $4.
In Florida, one of the primary effects of high fuel prices
was the loss of tourism, the state's largest industry. Tourism
is a large source of income for state government. The budget
cuts the state is making now are related to the decline in
tourism, the state's economic engine. The state depends on
sales taxes for income. When tourism dries up, the guys in
those ugly short pants pulling motor boats behind their RV's
no longer'fill motels and restaurants. That in turn affects
everything else, from the construction industry to school
board budgets.
I suppose some people wonder why someone like myself,
a lifetime Democrat except for three years when I had no party
affiliation, has been so critical of President Barack Obama
and the Democratically-led U.S. Congress concerning oil
and gas prices. Why can't I be a loyal Democrat and support
them.
I noticed a very loyal Obama supporter wrote a letter to
the editor the other day criticizing my columns on oil and
gas pricing, but what he was really defending was Obama
without saying so. I will never forget one line in his letter
which suggested that $4 gas is cheap compared to the $8 per
gallon they pay in Europe. I feel much better now about $4
per gallon gasoline. It's the American way!
Obama has been largely silent on the energy crisis. That's
because he is an academic from the liberal side of the political
spectrum who sits back in the oval office and philosophizes
about how life could be in this country if Americans would
just sacrifice a few bucks more to pay for high priced gasoline
and high priced electricity.
I doubt if Obama has purchased a gallon of gasoline since
he entered political life as an Illinois state senator and later
a U.S. senator. As president, he rides around in vehicles and
jets powered fuel purchased by the American taxpayer. He
can afford to philosophize about middle and lower income
Americans while the rest of us pay the fuel tab at the pump.
He can afford to ignore the rising prices at the pump.
I blamed former President George W. Bush for being a
do-nothing president when it concerned oil and gas prices.


The $4 per gallon gas happened on his watch, and he was an
oilman. It was easy to blame an oilman for rising oil prices. I
remember seeing a sound bite from Bush shortly after he was
elected in the year 2000. He was asked if he thought gasoline
prices would ever increase to $2 per.gallon. His response was
yes. He said gasoline was an underpriced commodity.
What is Obama's excuse? I have had five months to watch
President Obama in action. I see him as extremely liberal on
energy policy. He apparently opposes increasing domestic
oil production. He obviously supports the Waxman-Markey
bill in the U.S. House of representatives that passed through
the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The bill is
designed to curb carbon dioxide emissions over the next 40
years by 80 percent. It's designed to limit greenhouse gas and
slow climate change..
The Waxman Markey bill is also designed to penalii~
electric companies that produce their power from coal, oil
and natural gas. The companies and cooperatives would be
limited by how much electricity they could produce with
carbon-based gas, oil and coal. When they reach the carbon
cap they would have to buy penalty credits on the open
market. The penalties would be passed on to consumers in the
form of higher electric prices at our homes and businesses.
Cap and trade is an anti-business approach to the energy
crisis. It's a proposal that has emerged from the liberal
northeasterners who were largely responsible for Obama's
rapid ascension to power. Course, Florida and California
also went Obama's way. If cap and trade is implemented into
law, and electricity prices increase substantially, you will see
political repercussions in Washington. The American people
will react negatively in the 2010 congressional elections.
To say that I have been extremely disappointed with
President Obama's handling of the gas and oil pricing crisis
would be an understatement of such a magnitude that words
are inadequate. And I think he could soon begin damaging
the economy by attempting to implement programs that tax
Americans to achieve his personal environmental goals.
I really think many people believed Obama would be the
next Franklin D. Roosevelt, the man who would lead us out
of the great recession with a modern New Deal. I think it's
clear by now that he is a clever individual with political skills,
but a Franklin D. Roosevelt he is not. He has no empathy for
the working class of the country, the people who will bear the
brunt of his environmental and economic meddling.
He has a Democratically-led U.S. Congress to implement
his programs. They appear ignorant enough to carry out his
will. It's unfortunate that the Democratic sheep in Congress
can be led to their own political demise. They seen willing to
dive headlong into economic policies that many Americans
don't support. They seem unwilling to implement policies
that could help the American economy.
It's not that I believe Republicans ,are the superior
party. It's unfortunate that whenever we have a Republican
president in the oval office, it seems the country is at war. We
spend American tax dollars making war abroad. But when
the Democrats take power, they are the great social reformers
who plan to save the world, even if they don't have the money
to pay for it. They ask American taxpayers to foot the bill.
What we really need are statesmen running the country,
free of granite-hard political ideology, and not wedded to any
political party or its philosophy. That doesn't necessarily the
leaders have to be male. Statesman is a gender neutral term
as far as I am concerned. It means a respected national and
international leader of high character and integrity. It means
not being tethered to campaign contributions. It means
making decisions that benefit the American people. It means
a great leader in American government who is neither liberal
nor conservative. Every issue is decided on its merits, based
on what is best for the American people. That's a statesman.
I don't think Obama or any member of Congress fits the
definition of statesmen.
Not hardly.

'Street Ed'knew more than most


My first assignment from seminary was to the
First Methodist Church in Chiefland, Fla. We arrived
there one June day and found the parsonage which
faced highway U.S. 19 that passed through the center
of town. No one was there when we arrived so we
got busy unpacking our few belongings.
The first real visitor came the next morning with a
knock on the door. Standing there was a kind, gentle-
looking black man with an aging face. He handed me
the morning paper and said he wanted to welcome
us to town. He told me that he loved the Lord and all
the preachers in town. I thanked him and he went on
his way. We saw him the next morning and the next
as he passed the house picking up trash along the
highway as it went north.
An hour or so later we saw him coming back on
* the other side of the highway doing the same thing. I
Swas told that he had taken it upon himself to do this
and after picking up trash in both directions, would
return to the one block business district and sweep
the sidewalks. So far as I knew no one paid him to
do this, but the druggist provided him lunch and the
owner of the dry goods store kept him in clothes. I
hasten to say the town's people weie good to Ed. No .
one mistreated him and everyone seemed to respect
and appreciate what he did for the town.
I got to know Street Ed and learned that his name
was Ed Henderson. When I asked his age he gave me


a date in the 1930s.
"You're older than that, aren't you?" 1 replied.
"Oh yes, but that's when 1 was born of God."
Some accident of birth made Ed less mentally
able than some people but he was neither dumb nor
stupid. In fact, I came to believe that he understood
more and did more with what he understood than
many of us who had more talents but made less use
of them.
In addition to keeping the town clean, Ed had
other interesting things which he did; for example,
he would write on the sidewalk with a large blue
crayon. They were important things like, "School is
starting. Watch out for the children." And down at
the end of the sidewalk where part of it was broken
he wrote, "Watch your step." Occasionally, he would
inscribe the title of a movie that was playing at the
local theater. Once when the feature was something
like "Honky Tonk Babes Behind Bars" (we always
got Hollywood's best) Ed, always the gentleman,
wrote "See the Ladies in Jail."
One time, when I went downtown to the bank,
I noticed in large blue letters just to the right of
the front door, "God made me. Ed." That's when I
knew Ed understood much more than many of us
where life came from and how it was to be lived in
service to others.
The railroad cut diagonally across U.S. 19 just


south of the business block and where it did, left
a small triangular plot of ground. There were
two or three mounds there, graves for the canine
friends that followed Ed as he went up and down
the highway. In addition, Ed hung a lighted lantern
there at night. When I asked him why the lantern
was there he replied that the Bible said, "Let your
light so shine before men that they may see your
good works and glorify your Father who is in
heaven." Oftentimes, when returning home after
dark, Ed's lantern would remind me of why God
had given us our lives and how we ought to live
them.
The Russian Orthodox Church has a tradition of
the Holy Fool. These are people who in some odd
way call attention to the faith by wandering about
in strange dress or repeating some scripture or
spiritual statement over and over. They aren't fools,
just different, and they stand apart from society in
some demonstrable way to call attention to God. In
the finest sense of the word, Ed was a Holy Fool.
"If anyone among you thinks he is wise in this
age, let him become a fool that he may become
wise. For the wisdom of this world is folly with
God." (I Corinthians 3:18-19)

Former pastor, Chiefland Methodist Church


Surprise, from Page 10A


rose to power in the Chicago area,
infamous for political corruption,
speaks volumes. And then there are
his connections to the Association of
Community Organizations for Reform
Now-ACORN. This is a group that has
been implicated in voter-fraud schemes
in as many as 15 states, including
Washington, where the grdup settled
what was called the "largest case of
voter fraud" in that state's history.
Obama previously served as a legal
representative with ACORN, and some
of his early days as a "community
organizer" were in conjunction with
ACORN activities.
Not surprisingly, ACORN warmly
endorsed Obama's presidential
candidacy.
Given all that, is it really any
surprise at all how many individuals in


the new president's cabinet have had
legal problems? More importantly,
ever wonder about all the things
that are happening in the executive
branch of our government that we
never hear about? (Perhaps you still
have' confidence that our state-run
media will uncover and expose any
improprieties.)
And what comes next? It would
be difficult to conceive anything that
would top the number of calamities
that have befallen the country over the
past 120 days. Somehow, some way,
you get the feeling that Mr. Obama
will succeed in that regard.
It appears very convincing that
we have been duped. But it is hard to
imagine how we were duped with so
many warning signs right in front of
our face.

Williston finds


positives in 21-20


spring game loss

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor


Williston's spring game against Crystal River,
played on the road Friday at Pirate Stadium, was a
practice game featuring a new coaching staff and a
revamped offense.
So end results were not exactly the most important
element of the game.
Crystal River scored on a 38-yard touchdown pass
with less than a minute
remaining-' to claim a
21-20 victory over the
Red Devils in Derek
Chipoletti's first game at
the helm of the Williston
team.
Understandably,
Chipoletti spoke more of
progress made and work to Chipoletti
be done than of wins and losses. His main concern
was the Red Devil offense.
"Offensively, we have a lot of work to do,"
he said. "We would have a play where we would
explode, and then we would sputter. And that is what
is going to.happen when you put a new system in."
Most notably, he added, the team must work to
improve its passing game, specifically concentrating
on when to throw the ball and when to hold on to
it.
"I think we made some mistakes in the passing
game," he said, "just learning to pull.the ball down
and live to.play another down instead of forcing the
ball in. That is going to coiie. These kids are not
used to throwing the football more. As we throw
more and see different looks and different coverages,
it will get better."
Senior-to-be.Dalton Edwards, shared time with
junior-to-be DJ King in Friday's game, with both
picking up considerable yardage. Edwards found
slotback Brandon Preston alone over the middle for
a 33-yard touchdown pass that put Williston up 14-7
early in the fourth quarter. King. meanwhile, found
running room on the same drite, scrambling for 54
yards on three carries.
The running game was a bright spot much of
the evening for the Red Devils. Dontrell Edwards
lumbered for a 22-yard run mid\\ a. through the first
quarter for Williston, while Kalen Penny scampered
95 yards for a fourth-quarter score that put Williston
up 20-14. And then there was Deonte Welch. whose
56-yard run early in the second half tied the game
at 7 apiece. Chipoletti said Welch will likely see
the ball more often once the regular season gets

underway in the fall.
"Deonte is a special player, and we are going to
try and gethim the ball as much as we can," he said.
"Tonight we wanted to spread the ball out and get
it in a bunch of people's hands, and I think we did
that."
Williston also got considerable efforts from a
number of defensive players, including linebacker
Markeuise Minor, who put a bone-jarring tackle on


Pirate backup quarterback Heath Herandez late in
the game. Hernandez came back, however, to thro\
a 38-yard touchdown pass to Pedro Diaz \with 55
seconds left in the game. Crystal River also scored
on a 70-yard run by Travaughn Brooks, and on a 25-
yard pass from Hernandez to Diaz.
Williston opens the seasonAug. 28 with a kickoff
classic game at Starke. The team begins its regular
season a week later at PK Yonge.


Hawthorne hands Bronson 46-7 defeat in spring jamboree


Story, photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's varsity football
team was beaten 46-7 Friday
by Hawthorne, a team as good
as any the Eagles will see in the
fall.
Coach Al Cooksey said
his team played well in the
fourth quarter after quarterback
Kelby Barber threw an 80-yard
touchdown pass to Quientell
Coleman running down the
right sideline in full stride.
The Eagles also blocked two
extra points.
The. touchdown pass was
an indication of what could
happen when the team gels.
But the Eagles were faced with
a major obstacle before the
game ever started. Six starting
players were sidelined by bad
grades. They will have to attend
summer school.
For one key player, an injury
was the problem. Raymie
Powers also sat out the game
with a pulled hamstring muscle.
He is a veteran receiver for the
Eagles.
The Eagles lost 13 seniors
to graduation this year. That
didn't help.
Cooksey used a half dozen
players who have never played
'before. For them, the jamboree


mond Alvalle avoids a defender.


was their first taste of contact, and
it came against a team that liked
to hit. Hawthorne also had good
speed, good size and athleticism.
It was baptism by fire for
Bronson.
Cooksey was measured in his
comments afterward.
"It showed how much .work
we've got to do," he said of the
loss. "We had some bright spots.
Most of the guys had never played
together before."
Cooksey is trying to build a
program. His first year was 2008.
After the season ended he had
eight players in the weight room all
1,


the way through the first of May.
But coaches can't control
how well players perform in
the classroom. The six starters
knocked out of the jamboree by
grades are most of his skill players,
the guys that run and catch the ball
on offense and defend against the
pass and the run.
The jamboree was an inelegant
end to the spring, but it provided
the coaches with a measuring stick
to gauge their fall talent.
"This was to see where we are,"
Assistant Coach Mitchell told the
players. "It's up to us to take it to
the next level."

Blum takes Sportsman Feature for second week;


new mud bog defies the racers on opening day


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Matt Blum won his second consecutive Sportsman
Feature Saturday night at Bronson Motor Speedway.
Blum, a High Springs"racer who started at the
inside poll position, said his car was fast, even though
he had to install a new carburetor that afternoon. He
drove to Lake City for the part, making the round trip.
in 30 minutes.
He said the car ran fast all night.
"When I stomped on the accelerator, it went," he
said.
Earlier in the day, track owner Tony Parker opened
his new mud bog racing facility at Bronson Motor
Speedway. The 100-yard-long facility held its own.
None of the mud boggers made it all the way through
the clay lined trench.
Parker has offered $300 to the first to pull through
the mud bog this Saturday with 49 inch tires or smaller.
No nitro. The mud bogging begins at 10 a.m. He is
offering $200 to the first to pull through the hole with
bigger than 49 inch tires. No nitro. He is offering $100
for the longest pull and $50 for most determined.
Parker smiled when he talked about no one making
it through on opening day. He said it won't drive away
the mud bog racers. It will attract them.
In racing at the track Saturday night, second place
finisher Shelton Bowers slammed into the wall early
in the race after hitting the asphalt lip on the back
stretch. He continued racing. He said the collision
with the wall slowed him down.
"I was catching Matt before I hit the wall," Bowers
said. "It was just a blessing to finish second."
Hitting the wall threw off the steering alignment in
his car. He said the alignment marker on his steering
wheel moved half a foot.
"I feel I could have caught Matt if I hadn't hit the
wall," he said.
Bowers said his crash into the wall was accidental.
He said he tries to get as close to the wall as possible
during the race without hitting the lip, but this time
he hit it. He bounced off the wall and back onto the

track.
He said the track was greener than he thought.
Green means it lacked traction.
"That's how I got into the wall. I thought it.(the
track) was better than it was," he said. "I have to take
my hat off to Matt. If I have to run second to anyone,
it would be to Matt."
Blum said he knows Bowers could not have caught
him. Blum's father was on the headset and told him
when Bowers began to challenge. His father kept him
advised as he extended his lead by two car lengths,
three car lengths and then the entire backstretch.
Bowers also damaged the hood of his car in the
heat race before the main event. He said the track light
didn't turn on to indicate the start of the race, but two
drivers ahead of him fired up and began moving. He
followed their lead. But a car out front of the pack


didn't move. It caused a pileup before the heat race
started.
In the Street Stock race, the Stalnaker brothers of
Ocala, Jeff and Mike, led the race until Mike blew
his distributor and everything in it.
Jeff Stalnaker won the race for the second
consecutive week. Tommy Ausbum of Bronson was
second.
Stalnaker said he started the race in the second
outside row, but both he and his brother passed
Ausburn on the outside to take the lead. He said
passing is always difficult at Bronson, but he and his
brother have found ways to do it.
"It's all hairy passing here," he said. "We do our
homework. We have a lot of secrets."
Ausborn won the Hornets 1 race, and Tom Sullivan
won Hornets 2. Larry Welters, Sr. won Street Stock.

STANDING UPRIGHT


BEFORE GOD (PART 1)


The newspaper ad read "Beautiful upright antique
piano $100." I called the number. I'd been hankering
to join that upper echelon who boasts a piano in their
cramped living room.
Some sleepy-sounding fellow answered, which
was odd, it being late afternoon
and all. I asked-him if I could -
come over and kick around
under the hood. After a heavy t k
sigh, then what I surmised to
be a yawn, he finally managed,
"Ohhhkay."
"Doesn't sound in tune," I
said plunking down on the faded
yellow keys. The sleepy seller's '
expression never changed. He .
just scratched himself, wiped
his nose on his pajama sleeve,
and shrugged.
I didn't figure this fellow
to be too bright, so I offered
him 75 bucks. Sleepy looked
even more confused, if that
was possible, maybe even a But Any
little dopey. "I'll have to ask
my mom when she gets home," with G
he muttered, "She said she was
hoping to get 60 out of it."
Suddenly the piano looked a lot nicer to me. I
slapped three 20s on him and asked if he'd help me
load it up. You should've seen Sleepy's jaw drop at
the mention of work. He began mumbling something
about what time his momma got home. I just shook
my head and walked out to back my truck up to the
door.
I grunted and heaved and pulled most every muscle
in my body scooting that 400 pound chunk of junk
out the door. It was enough to cause a fellow to have
second thoughts, especially when I noticed how easily
its finish peeled off on the door jam.
Once outside we took a break. Of course I say "we"
lightly. I was seating like a New Orleans cab driver.
Sleepy hadn't even bothered to set down his coffee
cup. Mostly he'd just stood there sighing repeatedly.
In fact, I had to threaten him to finally get him to help
me lift one end up onto the tailgate.
As I was giving one last herniated push to slide
it aboard I heard a metallic thud behind me. It was a
deadbolt slapping into place. It seems Sleepy secretly
slipped silently inside. (Say that three times real
fast!)


Since I hadn't thought to bring any tie downs, I
purposed to drive it down the steep yard at a .snail's
pace. Everything was going fine until my front
wheels edged off the curb. Then the whole truck tilted
violently and there was a huge 'BLAM'! Mynew
"upright" was now officially a "down-wrong."
I rushed out to survey the
'damage. It was substantial.
The foot pedals had fallen off.
Splintered wood lay all over
the truck bed. I climbed in and
tried to wrestle it back upright,
but I hadn't the strength. Up at
the house I noticed the curtains
S' suspiciously wiggling shut.
It was then I experienced
S1 one of those rare moments of
clarity, "I should just dump
i this thing off right here on the
curb and cut my losses." I gave
it .serious thought, but, sadly,
dismissed the idea and drove it
on home. I guess mere fleeting
r3ay.,. moments of sanity were never
** enough .to penetrate my thick
uy Sheffield skull back in those days.
The story doesn't stop there,:
but I' reckon I will for now.
Because before I go I'd like to ask you one question:
Is your life making music? Or does everything just
seem to be out of tune in your heart? Maybe you've
got it all "down-wrong?" You've got to be careful you
know, sleepy Satan's craftier than he looks. He'd love
nothing better than to pawn off a heavy load on you
with no intention of helping you carry it.
Listen, the best deal is getting "upright" with God.
The only way to do that is to give your life to Jesus.
Some trust in chariots, and some in horse; but we will
remember the name of the LORD our God. They are
brought down and fallen; but we are risen, and stand
upriht. Psalms 20:7-8 KJV
But anyway I'll tell you the rest of the story
later. In the meantime, why don't you just save
yourself a lot of grief and let this be one of those
skull penetrating moments of clarity for you?

How does Pixar do it? They have

it hits. The true parody parts are well
done. When the Wayans Brothers are
being clever instead of just silly, they
hit the mark.
The story is about a white girl
who can't dance who meets up with a
black boy who wants to dance. They
attend high school together. The movie
parodies so many movies, I can't list
them all. But "Hairspray" and "Fame"
and "Flashdance" are all targeted.
There is racial humor, sexual humor
and gay humor. There ig some amazing
dancing, especially break dancing.
Dance Flick is harmless and silly. The
parodies don't meanmuch if you haven't
seen the movies being parodied.
There is little violence, no bad
language and no scenes of sex, although
there are sexual references. The movie is
best for teens 13 or 14 and up. Parents,
this is one you might want to let the kids
see at home.


Our first beach trip


It's hard to grasp, but schools here in Levy
County will be out for the summer by the time most
of you read this e\ week's Journal, with many of you
already packing it up and heading to one of the many
beautiful Florida beaches that are only an hour or
two away.
It was more like a four- to five-hour trip for us
to reach the ocean from our Georgia home, which
might help explain why our girls were ages 4 and 6
the very first time they laid eyes on the Atlantic, the
beach being at St. Simons Island.
To say they were excited while traveling there just
doesn't cut it, but nothing prepared us for their first
sight of the ocean. They barreled down the wooden
steps at the historic lighthouse, and ran up and down
the shoreline, screaming at the top of their huge
lungs, even scaring the seagulls away, which is no
small feat. Only promises of returning early the next
day would convince them to leave with their parents
to go check out the brand new condo that would'be
home for the next week.
And return we did. Have I ever mentioned that
I have a very fair complexion, as in blinding, as in
my husband uses me as a backup flashlight when
necessary? Well, said skin does not do well in
the sun for, shall we say, any longer than about 45
minutes, before it starts to cook, even wearing the
highest number sunscreen.
So, considerate person that my husband is, he came
up with a truly spectacular solution, that being a 10
x 10 dining tent, under which we parked our four
chairs, three beach bags, two miniature tables, one
cooler, and the entire beach toy section from Toys R
Us. And of course, Barbie and her entourage had to
see the ocean, also. Homesteaders had nothing on
us. We were there to stay.
My husband encouraged me to take a little sand
pail and shovel, and try my hand at building a simple
sandcastle, never having been able to stay at the
beach long enough before to even get the first corner
standing.
I was so proud to' show the girls my handiwork,

but they were not impressed. I looked behind me
to see why not, only to discover something akin
to Cinderella's castle, complete with turrets, flags,
walls with windows and even a moat.
Guess what. This was not their father's first
sandcastle. Au contraire; his family had a house
at Flagler Beach and he was an expert sandcastle
builder and he sandbagged me big-time. It's okay.
His oceanic knowledge came in handy later on in the
week when it really counted.
Our daughters had found some shells that first
day and I wanted them to stay outside and "dry out,"
so we left them on the patio table. (The shells, not
the girls.) The next morning, they were gone, having
somehow jumped down and crawled off in search of
the ocean. (Again, the shells, not the girls, although
said girls were hard-pressed iot to go running off in

search of their hard-earned prizes of the sea.)
On our last day at the beach, my husband
suggested we stop by a souvenir shop first, although
the girls were way anxious to go in search of more
precious shells and just fidgeted the entire "wasted"
time in the store. Well, their hunt for sea bounty
was very successful, much more so than any of the
other kids that morning.
You see, their father was determined they were
going to replace their lost treasures, so he was
surreptitiously standing there dropping store-bought
shells from his pockets into the ocean. Their squeals
of delight were well worth a little deception. Years
later, we told them, and they actually appreciated
it! Wow!

How to Create a Customized Wed.n


Jfow to Create a CustomizedWedding


7B


(MS) -- More so than ever, soon-to-
be-wed couples are establishing their
own traditions by looking for ways to
impart a custom feel into their weddings
-- without breaking the bank. Weddings
have a tendency to be contagious, and
chances are, you've already been invited
to a number of weddings this year.
After a while the same traditions can
become tedious and routine. If you are
planning your own wedding, you may
be competing with others you know for
unique ideas.
Did you know that according to the
latest findings, 2.4 million weddings
occur annually? That's a lot of bouquet
tossing and wedding band renditions
of "The Wind Beneath my Wings" to
sit through. It's no wonder most brides
want their ceremony and reception to be
different. Maybe you're inspired by the
lavish celebrity affairs, many of whom
fly entourages to exotic locales like Tom
Cruise and Katie Holmes did last year
in Italy, or clean out florists' supplies
of an entire species of flower all in the
effort to be different. Celebrities have
the bankrolls to do so. But you, too, can
have a custom affair with an average
wedding budget. So apart from choosing
Personal wedding songs and outlandish
bridesmaids' gowns. what can N ou do to"
be unique? Plent).
"With a creative imagination and
some internet resources, you can host
a custom weddingg, sa\s Ava Jordon,
an Illinois wedding planner. "From
personalized stationer to memorable
keepsakes, there are a number of ways
to put your special touch on the affair."
1. On Location: Change the setting
of the wedding. Think be ond the local
reception hall. Investigate a park. theater.
museum or even a building rooftop.
,You may be able to get these venues for
i a steal. Also. destination weddings are
* growing in popularity. According to the
American Wedding Study conducted by
.the Conde Nast Bridal Group in 2006,
about 16 percent of all couples have
a destination wedding, a 400 percent
increase in the past 10 years. Your
destination can be a Caribbean island,
* the San Francisco Bay or a European
castle.
2. Break the rules: Okay, so there
really aren't hard-set rules in weddings,
Except for those that your house of
worship may require. Still, people


June is the most popular month for couples to tie the knot, whether
it be an inside or outside wedding.


become accustomed to.certain traditions.
Go against the norm. If the groom
wants a female "best man" that's his
prerogative. If the bride wants to ditch
the white gown and wear a drop-dead-
gorgeous red dress, she certainly has the
right. The first dance at the reception
doesn't have.to be a sappy love song.
Choose an up-tempo number or your
favorite rock hit. It's a celebration after
all. Some guests'jaws may drop initially,
but soon the 'll1 understand you're just
expressing creative license.
3. Personalize stationery: Couples
can show their personalities through the
stationery they choose -- from quirky
save-the-date fridge magnets to thank
you notes that all form a cohesive theme.
A well-designed invitation set not only
establishes the mood of the event, it also
informs guests of what to do and when.
But traditionally stationery doesn't offer
many opportunities for personalization,
especially if you're planning a wedding
that has unique communication
needs, such as a destination wedding.
Checkerboard Ltd. has a line of wedding
stationery called Blue Moon that opens
up the possibilities for customization.
It provides all the elements couples
need to communicate with their guests
when they are planning destination
weddings or have special requirements
where stationery needs to be more than
just a response card and ceremony
announcement.
For example, Blue Moon sets
include save-the-date cards, invitations


to special activities, schedule of events,
stickers for local maps and guidebooks,
tags, for gift bags, maps, directions cards,
welcome letters, programs, and custom
folders to keep all these documents
together. Styles include tropical, al fresco
and island botanical themes, beautiful
alpine imagery, and seasonal designs.
Most invitations can be customized
for almost any destination, whether it's
overseas or the next town over. Learn
more at www.checkeret.com.
4. Take the cake: Instead of a tiered
wedding cake go for a custom creation.
If you've ever tuned into the Food


Network you know that cakes can be
designed in all shapes and sizes.. Or
maybe you prefer something even more
unique? Whether a series of individual
cupcakes, gourmet brownies or your
favorite pie, allow your preferences to
set the scene instead of feeling the need
to conform.
5. Free DIY favors: Guests look
forward to taking home a memento
from the wedding. But usually it's just
something that ends up collecting dust on
a shelf. Who likes those Jordon almonds
anyway? For intimate weddings, tuch
as destination wedding affairs where
the guest list may be considerable
smaller, you can personalize favors
for each couple that attends the event.
Offer a sweet sentiment and words of
thanks for their attendance. Blue Moon
has a series of matching wedding favors
that you can print out for free on,a
home computer and assemble yourself
at www.checkernet.com/favors. From
playing card packages, to CD holders, to
flower favor boxes, you can calm stress
with some wedding-themed origami
and present something truly unique that
won't be a budget-breaker.
Think unique and whimsical for your
wedding and definitely stand out from
the crowd. It's your special day so make
the most of it and enjoy and remember
the day forever. For more ideas on
custom stationery and wedding themes,
