Watermelon Festival once again a sweet success


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Storm clouds and a sluggish economy cast long
shadows in the weeks and days leading up to the 2009
Chiefland Watermelon Festival. But June 6 brought
deep pockets and mostly sunny skies, leading to one
of the most successful festivals in recent memory.
The day ended with Chiefland teenager Erika
Drummond being chosen from among 16 contestants
as the 2009 Chiefland Watermelon Festival Queen.
All things considered, said Karen Tillis of the
Chiefland Woman's Club, which organized the event,
it was a banner year.
"We think it was very successful," she said. "I
would say that there were 2-3,000 more people
attending the festival than last year, at least. If there
had not been a threat of rain, I am not sure the depot
area would have held them all."
A variety of vendors from around the region
ignored an early-morning downpour to pitch their
tents and sell their products. Tillis, who admitted to
having her own doubts about the weather, said those
who came to town were rewarded.
"I was having a panic attack at 5 a.m.," she said.
"That rain kept a few vendors away, but there was a
big payoff for those who came."
The Watermelon Festival Parade began at 10 a.m.
and produced a variety of entrants, from tractors

School Board continues to take cuts


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Levy County School Board received
a memo from the state Friday announcing the
district will lose $313,000 from the Public
Education Capital Outlay fund next year.
The cut will leave only $146,000 leftover for
maintenance of all the schools, said Levy County
School Board Superintendent Robert Hastings.
"That will not go far to maintain our 12
schools with all these old buildings," Hastings
said.
What the cut will mean is that money
will have to be taken out of the general
fund, which is used to pay salaries, he said.
"We'll just have to make due somehow," he said,
but no more job cuts are planned at this time.
However, friction between the School Board
of Levy County and the Levy County Education
Association continued at the school board
meeting June 2.
Levy County EducationAssociation President
Cindy Roach presented a question to the school
board members and Hastings at the meeting. The
question was in regard to the upcoming budget
and financial crisis.
Twenty-one veteran teachers lost their


positions this year because they made too much
money, Roach said referring to those who are
either part of the extended Deferred Retirement
Option Plan (DROP) or retired and then rehired
back on annual contract.
The majority of cuts directly affect the quality
of education in Levy County, she said.
But Roach asked why there were four new
district level positions created and appointed
that were listed on the addition to the May 19
school board meeting consent agenda.
For the '09-' 10 year there is 1.09 percent less
in the state budget that was based on last year's
fourth-quarter allocation, which equals out to
about $663,000.
She said she doesn't understand how the
school board can afford to hire four new district
employees and get rid of 21 veteran teachers at
such a time as now.
"Is it really about students in Levy County?"
Roach asked. "Can we really not afford quality
education?"
When Roach was reseated, Hastings
addressed her concerns and said there definitely
was not the creation of four new district-level
positions.

Four persons were injured Friday evening near Bronson when
a pickup truck overturned several times on County Road 339A,
ejecting both front seat passengers and trapping those in the rear
seat.
The Florida Highway Patrol identified the driver as Alexandra
Mora, 19, Morriston. His front seat passenger was Caleb Rayan
Hampton, 15, of Williston. The back seat passengers were
Armando Mora; 19, Williston and Christina Hampton, 18,
Williston.
All four were listed as being in serious condition'at the crash
site.
Charges are pending in the 7:35 p.m. wreck. NTeither the driver
nor his passengers were wearing seatbelts. County Road 339A
leads to the Blue Springs County Park, a favorite swimming area
in the summer months.
One of the four occupants was flown out by helicopter.
Inclement weather in Tampa prevented a second helicopter from
reaching the scene. Traffic was blocked on U.S. 27A to allow
the ShandsCair ambulance-helicopter to land on the southbound
lanes.
Bronson Fire Rescue used the Jaws of Life to remove the
trapped passengers from the rear of the extended cab pickup
truck. Trooper Alan Harrison, formerly a Chiefland police officer,

City changes course

on insurance contracts
By Terry Witt
Staff'Writer

The city of Chiefland's insurance contract is up for grabs.
City commissioners on Monday voted 4-1 to instruct staff
to advertise for competitive bids on all the city's insurance
contracts.
Their decision reverses a vote at a previous commission
meeting to allow Mike Michaelis of Don Martin Insurance to
continue as the city's insurance agent of record, a position he
has held for eight.years. Michaelis contacts companies and
selects the best offer.
Michaelis did not attend Monday's meeting. The ,decision
to go out for competitive bids was not an agenda item. The
motion was made by Commissioner Rollin Hudson and
seconded by Sammy Cason. The city commission allows
non-agenda items to be heard and voted on.
"I like Mike, but I think we need to bid it put," Hudson
said.
Bill Irwin and Brad Groom of Irwin Insurance had asked
for a chance to bid on the insurance contracts. They said they
didn't bid last year because there wasn't enough time. They
plan to bid on every insurance contract this year.
Michaelis submitted the only bid last year. He was surprised

previous council meeting and received
her May award from Hethcoat at the June

but she can always count on Ashley to
get a message delivered or an errand
run in a timely fashion and to complete
her assignments both in class and at
home...always. Ashley is also part of
the Enhanced Learning Program (ELP)
for gifted students and was selected as
a member of the school's safety patrol.
Ashley has enthusiastically participated
in ELP since third grade, always going
above and beyond to complete projects
thoroughly and creatively. Ashley is the
kind of student that reminds teachers
of0why they love to teach. "She makes
our job fun and rewarding, and she
appreciates us as much as we appreciate
her," Helgerud said.
Chelsea Espidora, a fifth grader


at Williston Elementary School and
daughter ofMelisa Ervin, was nominated

her and brag on how well she gets along
with others.
Joshua Forsythe, a first grader at.
Joyce Bullock Elementary School and
son of Mark and Dawn Forsythe; was

and is very welling to help others. He is
involved in the community of Williston
by:playing baseball. He has been on the
AllA's Honor Roll all year long.

Kordgien. He said Ryan is definitely
a hard worker academically,, an avid
reader and an excellent citizen in the
classroom. In addition to his classes he
serves the school as a peer. facilitator.

and accurate always, doing his best to
do exactly what is asked of him. He is
a humble and polite person, one of our
unsung heroes.

P.E. teacher and March of Dimes'
site director, for all the hard work she
has done to help raise money at the
school.

lesson at such a young age," Hastings
said. "You are going to be a leader."


Teen program designed to assist drivers


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

In 2005 Levy County ranked second, in the state in the number
of teen-involved traffic crashes for counties with a population of
0-50,000.
"This is an appalling statistic," said Capt Evan
Sullivan of the Levy County Sheriff's Office.
The number of traffic crashes involving teenagers has improved
slightly since then, with Levy County ranked fifth or sixth in the
state, but the sheriff's office's Community Relations Division is
.offering a program to reduce teen crashes.
Sheriff's Lt. Sean Mullins is heading a free Teen Driver
Improvement Program in June and July for students who have a
current operator's permit or learner's permit or who are about to
get their learner's permit. The program is grant funded.
One of the skills taught in the course is what to do if a
driver drops a tire off the road on the highway. Students will be
instructed how to safely return to the road. Lives have been lost
when teenagers accidentally left the road and crashed when they
attempted to get back in their lane of travel.
Students will be given a special set of goggles that simulates
what it is like to drive drunk. They will be driving around in golf
carts wearing the goggles. They are also taught about the dangers
of driving while talking on a cell phone.
The last thing students will be asked to do is write a letter to

their parents saying goodbye. The idea is to teach students the
importance of safety and the impacts it can have on them and
their families.
"It's a powerful program," Mullins said.
The goal of the program is to educate the teen drivers of
Levy County about the dangers of aggressive driving, distracted
driving, impaired driving and reinforce the importance of wearing
seatbelts, Sullivan said.
"These four issues have been found to be major causes of
teen-involved crashes, injuries and fatalities," Sullivan said.
The program consists of classroom instruction, videos, power
point presentations and hands-on time during which students will
drive golf carts through a course to learn the dangers of making
the wrong choices as they drive.
SParent waivers are required due to the graphic nature of the
presentation. For more information contact Mullins or Sgt. Max

City gives fire chief OK to apply for federal grant


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

It's a long shot, but Chiefland city
commissioners gave Fire Chief John
Ward permission Monday to apply for a
federal grant to build a new fire station.
The American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act (federal economic
stimulus plan) will provide $210 million
to provide grants to communities, with
a $5 million limitation for each project.
Ward said he estimates it would cost
at least $1 million to build a new fire
station. He thinks obtaining the grant
is a long shot because the program
is looking for shovel ready projects
already designed and engineered.
The city is not required to provide
matching dollars for the grant.
Applicants would receive additional
points for matching funds. However,
Ward said the grant is a long shot and
there is no point investing local tax
money that could be used for something
else.
In other business:
Commissioners voted to file for
a $650,000 community development
block grant that would provide water,
sewer, paving and fire protection to a
small section in the northeastern part of
the city.
The target of the grant is the area
around Pepper Ridge Apartments
including Eleanor Village, and eight
homes behind Barbeque Bills restaurant.
Fred Fox Enterprises is handling the
application and will administer the grant
if it is awarded. Creech Engineering will
engineer the project.
As part of the grant process,
commissioners were required to review
their existing Fair Housing Ordinance,
which prohibits discrimination on the
basis of race, color, ancestry, national
origin, religion, sex, marital status,.
familial status, age, or physical handicap
regarding housing.
Among other things, the ordinance
requires the city commission to receive,
investigate and seek to work to resolve
complaints of housing discrimination.


Fair and impartial hearings are assured
and the city is to provide administrative
and relief opportunities.
If any resident becomes displaced
because of this project, the city has an
anti-displacement policy in place which
governs relocation of those residents.
Persons seeking further information
should contact Laurie Copeland,
financial projects coordinator for the
city at 493-6711.
-Commissioners honored three
Student of the Month recipients:
Libby Sheffield, a fifth grader
at Chiefland Elementary School and
daughter ofPam and Mike Sheffield, was
nominated by teacher Tammy Arrington,
who said Libby always enters the
classroom with a smile on her face. She
always tries her hardest and takes pride
in her work. He is always enthusiastic,
energetic and eager to begin the school
day. Her positive attitude and work ethic
is a teacher's dream come true. She is
always willing to help with any task,
whether it is helping another -student
with an academic problem or helping
the teacher with the day to day activities
of running a classroom. She is punctual
and rarely misses an opportunity to
attend school. She participates in Safety
Patrol and takes her duties seriously.
Matt Bray, a junior at Chiefland
High School and son of Bob and Rita
Bray, was nominated by Christine
Smith and Becky Tyson. They described
Matt as an exceptional student who
is always there to give a helping hand.
He volunteers many hours working
in the front office of Chiefland High
School and in Business Education.
Matt is polite, dependable and reliable.
Wheneveryou get in a crunch you can
depend on Matt.
Logan Smith, an eighth grader
at Chiefland Middle School and son of
Laura and Stoney Smith, is inquisitive
and well-mannered.- He cooperates
with other students and is a helper to
teachers, as well. Logan participated in
the Chiefland Middle School football
program and is a well-rounded young
man.

National animal rescue organization trains in Bronson


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Bronson Motor Speedway had
an unusual guest stuck in the mud
bog Saturday.
The American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Disaster Response Team was in
Florida for a weekend of technical
training for large animal rescue.
The organization out of New
York City, as well as the University
of Florida School of Veterinary
Medicine, the American Humane
Society, and members from fire rescue
stations in Bronson, Williston and
the Levy County Fire Rescue Station
78 from Morriston were all present
for the rescue of a simulated horse
from the mud. The "horse," which
weighed about 700 pounds, or about
half of what a real horse weighs, was
made from wood and pipes and filled
with water to add weight.
Kristi Adams, special agent in the
ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement
Division a member of the Disaster
Response Team, and Joel Lopez,


manager of the ASPCA's Mobile
Clinic Outreach Program and member
of the Disaster Response'Team, were
in the mud lifting the simulated horse
with ropes, gurneys, and slings.
Tony Parker, owner of the
Speedway, operated the backhoe that
lifted the horse up and out of the
mud.
Water pressure is used to release
the suction the mud creates around
the horse's legs, said Allison
Cardona, director of the ASPCA
Disaster Response Team. Otherwise,
if the horse was simply lifted up from
the mud without the- water pressure,
the suction could hold it there and
it could cause severe damage to the
animal.
The rescue at the Speedway was
held in order to simulate the rescue
of a large animal from a sinkhole
or muddy field or another disaster
situation, Cardona said.
The organization also had
other simulated and real training
opportunities around the Gainesville
area throughout the weekend.
Friday was spent hauling and

simulated sinkhole fescue in High
Springs on Sunday.
Lopez said it is good to get all


the training they can in order to be
prepared for the real situation.
"Animals get themselves in all
sorts of situations," he said. "Due to
the weight of the animals, you need
practice, you need equipment and
you need to stay safe."


Newly


elected state


representative pays Levy County a visit


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

District 10 State Representative Leonard Bembry
was making the rounds in Levy County last week. He
sat down with Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas
Friday to discuss politics, philosophy and life in
general.
Douglas said there are two bills he would like
Bembry to work to get passed.
The first bill he said is very "near and dear" to his
heart and something that will make the streets a little
bit safer. It is the requirement of sexual predators to
have fluorescent green license tags on their vehicles
that identifies them as a sexual predator.
Some people may think that is targeting or
offensive, but Douglas doesn't care.
"I'm not going to stay awake at night by offending
a sexual predator," he said.
"The better able we are to identify a sexual predator,
the safer we'll be."
He said he wants everyone in the community to
know what the fluorescent green tags, mean.
"For the sake of keeping our community safe, it's
necessary and, secondly, it might be a deterrent."
B'embry agreed that children especially deserve as
much protection as possible.
"A bill like that will.probably not be a problem,"
Bembry said. "This is all about the kids."
Douglas also bent Bembry's ear about a bill that
passed in Texas that involves the 10th Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution, also known as states' rights.
The bill ensures that the state of Texas claims
"sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the
Constitution of the United States over' all powers
not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal
government by the Constitution of the United
States."
Douglas said Florida could use a bill like that to
"regulate federal authority instead of letting them
regulate us."
"I totally agree with states' rights," Bembry said.
"We need to have as much local authority as we can
have."


State Representative Leonard Bembry and his District Secretary Teresa Watson stopped by
to discuss politics with Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas Friday.


Bembry said some of the other bills he's also
discussed while in town were the clerk of court's bill
that eliminates clerks' judicial functions, as well as
the property appraisers' bill that requires new aerial
photos taken every three years, which he said is not
necessary in small counties because .there isn't as
much change in development to be worth the $10,000
it costs to take the photos.
He said he is also environmentally concerned with
offshore drilling taking place as close as three miles
off the coast of Florida, as this could be detrimental to
those who make their living fishing and even harmful
to the tourism business.
Bembry said he is taking a look at all 1,60.0 bills that


are coming through to see how it will affect the small
counties and small communities that he represents-
in District 10. All in all, he said it has been a busy
year, and although the budget the state recently passed
was a "miserable failure" and the stimulus package
will take years to pay off, there are significant things
developing this year. He said he wants to stay in close
contact with his constituents throughout his district
because they elected him and he wants to return the
favor.
"I'm going to do my dead-level best to make sure
our district is well-informed," he said to Douglas.
Douglas agreed: "If it significantly touches the
people we serve, we want to know about it."


County EMS writes off bad debts, raises charges for services


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

More ,than a half million dollars in bad and
uncollectible debts was taken off the books of the.
Levy County Emergency Medical Service last week,
and several new charges for services were added or
increased.
Levy County commissioners voted unanimously
to write off $558,000 in unpaid customer bills dating
back to 2001. EMS Director Trish Seibold said her
department attempts to collect the debts through three
billing cycles before turning them over to a collection
agency.
The debts commissioners cleaned off the books
were uncollectible. Seibold said the county typically
writes off about $300,000 to $400,000 in uncollected
debts annually. This time was different. Her office
staff went through the records finding old debts that
needed to be cleaned off the books.
Seibold said the numbers appear high because
people can't afford to pay their ambulance bill. She
said there are people in the county who are paying $5
a month on their ambulance bills because they can't
afford more. She admires them for making good on
the debt.
Commissioners also adopted a resolution changing
the EMS schedule of fees and charges for services.
Seibold said she will also come back sometime
this year to solicit commission support for increasing
the property tax assessment'levied for EMS. The $75


fee hasn't been changed for 20 years. The same fee
is assessed for homes and businesses. It produces
enough money to pay for about half of the EMS
budget.
She said Government Services Group, a county
consultant, conducted a study concerning the fee.
GSG is proposing to raise the assessment primarily for
businesses. Residential increases would be minimal.
Commissioners have shown little interest thus far in
raising taxes.
The board approved the following increased
charges for services or new fees:
Advanced Life Support Fee for non-transport.
The fee is assessed for patients that receive certain
procedures but are not transported. The fee increased
from $35 to $165.
Basic Life Support Fee for non-transport was
raised from $35 to $90. The fee is for patients that
receive certain procedures but are not transported.
Special Handling Fee of $50. The new fee will be
assessed when Levy EMS has a patient that requires
restraints or extra people to handle the patient during
transport.
Fee for Waiting Time with Patients. This new fee
will be charged to the hospital, not the patient. After
the first five minutes of waiting, EMS will charge
the hospital $125 for the first 15 minutes and $60
for the second 15 minutes and for each quarter hour
that follows. Seibold said hospitals will be less likely
to leave Levy County patients sitting in the hallway)
when beds are available. She saidAlachua and Putnam


Counties charge similar fees.
Special Events or other occasions where an
EMS crew and unit is requested will see a higher fee.
EMS will charge the event $70 per hour for Basic
Life Support vehicle and crew and $140 per hour for
Advanced Life Support Vehicle and crew. Seibold
said the charges are intended to cover the county's
cost. When an ambulance and crew are requested, the
union's contract with the county requires the county
to pay the crew's salary and benefits. The event holder
is reimbursing the county for those costs.
Commissioners also voted 4-0 to allow Seibold to
use $14,000 of grant money that had been.set aside
to purchase portable radios to buy a keyless security
system for the ambulance stations. The system will
use electronic cards instead of keys. Seibold said
ambulance stations have been losing equipment to
intruders. She said new keyless entry system allows
EMS to track who is using the electronic entry cards
and cut down on thefts.
Seibold said the ambulance stations have drugs on
site. If someone were to steal the drugs the county
would be liable. Commissioner Marsha Drew cast
the lone no vote., She was opposed to purchasing the
electronic security system. She felt the grant money
could be better used to buy EMS equipment. EMS
had planned to use the money for portable radios.
However, the portables are malfunctioning and the
county has no guarantees the radios can be repaired.
EMS decided.to use the grant~rmoney for securing
ambulance stations.

Bronson looks to abandoned


hard drive for key information


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's town council instructed Clerk Kelli
Brettel last week to advertise for a computer expert
that can retrieve potential records from the crashed
hard drive of a city computer that was fished out of a
storage cabinet.
The hard drive was brought to the attention of the
council by businessman Jim Beck who said it may
contain valuable records of city operations dating
back many years. He said the city has an obligation to
retrieve those records.
Brettel has been busy since she was hired last
summer finding and organizing the town's records and
obtaining audits on the city's books. She informed city
council members that Purvis Gray & Co., the city's
certified public accountant, is nearing completion of
the audit for the year 2005-06.
That means the city is still three years behind on
audits.
She is hopeful Purvis Gray & Co. will give the city
an opinion. That would be progress. If the accounting
firm refused to give an opinion it probably means it
couldn't find enough of the town's records for that
fiscal year to make a judgment. .
Brettel is new to the town. She doesn't know why
the audits were not done in a timely fashion. Mayor
Frank Schuler, the longest serving council member
with 15 years on the board, has indicated he also
doesn't know why audits were not done by the city
for many years.
Beck believes the computer hard drive may contain
records dating back to the time of former Clerk Donna
Conquest. While the auditors have yet to ask for
information from the hard drive, Beck said the city
should take a sincere interest in finding out what is
in the computer's stored files and whether it can be
retrieved.
"It is our responsibility to have these records..."
Beck said.
Still on the subject of city records, Brettel said
auditors haven't been able to locate any records to
indicate if the city finished paying for two parcels of
land that make up 35 acres of Bronson Recreation
Park. The land was bought from Jack and Ethel
Hancock.
Brettel has found a computer check stub indicating
it was a final payment, but the check itself doesn't say
final payment. The city's auditors believe $22,000 is
still owed on the property. The last payment made was
in January of 2006. The previous owners have never-
complained about not being paid.
Poor city records surfaced in another matter. Brettel


said the city should have paid Progress Energy $73,000
for street lights when U.S. 27A was four-laned, but the
company was never paid.
On the bright side, Brettel said she is certain the city's
certificate of deposit insa local bank is the $73,000 that
was never paid to Progress Energy. She can't explain
why former city officials never made the payment.
In other business:
Council members ordered the owner of a rental
home at 140 Oak Street to stop using the building
until repairs are made. After a complaint was received
from a tenant, Building Official Robert D. Niffenegger
inspected the home and found it had been converted
to a multi-family dwelling without permits. There are
holes in the exterior walls and mold in the walls. He
found an electrical breaker panel with exposed bare
wires. The bath.shvwer.was inoperable. Windows were
inoperable or covered ith plywood. There were holes
in the floor. The septic tank system doesn't comply
with health department regulations.
Council members awarded Jimmy Jerrels the
contract to pave Stevens, Davis and May Streets from
Standridge to Ishi. Jerrels was low bidder at $68,750.
He has 25-30 days to start the project.
The council voted to award the contract to repair
the roof of oldi Cita Hall to Gainesville Roofing, Inc.
Representative Charlie Kennedy said the best proposal
he offered was the $8,400 option. It replaces the entire
rain gutter and repairs rotted areas of the roof.
Council members told businessman Eddie Mayes
he could apply for the necessary paperwork to continue
operating his auto repair shop: Mayes has received
occupational licenses from the city for years even
though the property is not zoned for auto repairs.
The council gave Cindy Camp and Debbie Miller
permission to operate a fireworks display at Bronson
Recreation Park on July 4, provided they can provide
documentation of insurance. But the council turned
down their request to use an office in old City Hall for
a chamber office.
Council members approved a resolution that
provides a new method for selecting a fire chief.
Firefighters in the department will make three
recommendations. The council itself will choose the
chief for a four-year term. The contract is reviewed
annually. The new arrangement is aimed at providing
more stability for the position of chief. In the past the
firefighters themselves chose a chief arid he served for
a year, leaving little stability.
Council members agreed to Fire Chief Scott
Bulson's request to provide him with a cell phone and
add the phone to the city plan. The volunteer chief said
using his personal cell phone has raised the bill to about
$250 per month.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Levy County Commission's new space
committee voted last week to make a clean break
with the past by cutting ties with the architectural firm
that had worked with the old committee.
Members of the Levy County Constitutional &
Court Facility Committee voted unanimously to
recommend to the county commission that it terminate
its contract with Clemons, Rutherford & Associates,
Inc.
The committee, in addition to wanting to cut ties
with the former architect, also approved a motion for
staff to contact the University of Florida to determine
if professional staff from the university could help the
committee with planning and evaluating facilities.
Committee members are hoping the university
can provide free advice or services, but if that is not
possible staff will find out what it would cost to hire
someone. The only caveat is that if someone is hired
from the university they would not be able to bid on
any contracts.
Committee members said Clemons, Rutherford's
failure to communicate with the county commission
and the confusion that resulted were the main
reasons the committee wanted to look elsewhere for
professional services.
County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell, a
committee member, said she had been contacted about
meeting with the company. She said the company
representative was disturbed by what he had read
concerning the committee's previous discussions.
Bell said she refused to meet with him, but did send
him a copy of the tape recording of the committee
meeting where the firm had been discussed. The
committee meets openly and is subject to the
requirements of the state's Sunshine Law.
"I refused to meet with him," Bell said. "I want
this board to be completely transparent."
The old space committee met privately and didn't
always inform the full county commission of what
it was discussing. That angered some constitutional
officers who felt they had been left out of the planning
process and were being told to accept whatever the
committee gave them for space.
Space is a premium in the Levy County Courthouse.


Most of the constitutional offices have carved their
office space into small work cubicles using portable
dividers, but there has been discussion of constructing
a new courthouse or courthouse annex since 2005.
The county doesn't have the money to construct the
building.
County Attorney Anne Baste Brown said the county
does have a contract 'with Clemons, Rutherford that
can be terminated. She said the second phase of the
contract called for the company to design a 30,000
square foot facility for the 21-acre. site on County
Road 337 north. However, it isn't clear to committee
members what offices were supposed to go to the new
site. There was talk of moving the court facilities out
there. The confusion is part of the reason for the desire
to break with Clemons, Rutherford.
The county commission currently has $1.3 million
in the bank available to be spent on court facilities,
but the committee has not decided whether the money
should be spent on the courthouse, at the future site,
or used to hire a professional consultant.
County Judge Joe Smith, at a previous committee
meeting, said it was his understanding the old space
committee had agreed to spend the money on improving
the looks of the front of the courthouse. However, Bell
said that decision was never communicated to the full
county commission. She knew nothing about it.
The county purchased 21 acres of property off
County Road 337 north, not far from the county jail,
for the next courthouse office complex. It will be
the job of the committee and county commission to
determine how that property is used and what happens
to the existing courthouse.
Five of the 21 acres is set aside for the Levy
County Health Department. The health department
has proposed a $16-million facility on their five acres
but has been unable to convince the state Legislature
to fund it.
The committee also decided that its official role
is to develop a long-term plan for courthouse space-
needs and for the 21-acre site. The suggestion was
made by committee member Danny Shipp, the clerk
of circuit court.
Committee members also agreed not to accept an
offer from realtor Libby Barr to sell two Levy County
homes that sit directly in front of the courthouse for
$999,000.

to hear that commissioners
had overturned an earlier
decision to keep him as
the agent of record.
"It's not fair and it's
not right," Michaelis said
in a telephone interview.
He said he may
check on the "legal
ramifications" of the
action the city took and
whether it was a Sunshine
Law violation.
"Why wasn't I given a
chance to be there to offer
my side?" Michaelis said.
Michaelis said the city
went out for competitive
bids last year at the urging
of the Irwin firm. He said
the firm didn't bid on the
city's business but is now
complaining that it didn't
have time to prepare a
bid. He said it had the
same amount of time
as everyone else, if not
more.
He thinks Hudson and
Cason were contacted
by someone before the
meeting and asked to
support the change. He
noted that Hudson, at
the previous meeting,
had indicated someone
had contacted him and
indicated dissatisfaction
about how the city was
handling its insurance.
Michaelis said he believes
be. knows who that was,
and he said the same
person probably prevailed
upon Hudson to bring the
issue back again..
Hudson said he felt it
was a fairness issue. He
felt the city, to be fair to
everyone, should go with
competitive bidding rather
than go with Michaelis.
At Monday's meeting, he
described Michaelis as an
"insurance czar.".
Hudson had voted
against giving Michaelis
the contract at the
previous meeting, citing
the fact that City Manager
Grady Hartzog had been
out on leave when the
city originally- voted
to give Michaelis the
contract. It was Hartzog
who' had recommended
competitive bidding.
When Hartzog
was asked for his
recommendation Monday,
he said he felt the' contracts
should be' competitively
bid.' He believes the city
could save as much as
$30,000.
Commissioner Teresa
Barron cast the lone vote
in opposition to Hudson's
motion. She said
Michaelis wasn't present
and was unaware the
issue was coming before
the board. She also noted
that Michaelis was the
oply bidder last year even
though the city advertised
for bids.
Barronsaidshebelieves
people in the community
should be allowed to
participate in fair bidding
but at the same time she
was concerned about the
lack of interest last year in
insuring an organization
the size of the city.


Hudson to

Hudson announced Monday
he would seek another term
of office. Hudson holds the
Group 3 seat.
Hudson and two other

Owner of big cats says they are not pets

Story and photos by Terry Witt .
Staff WriterI


Dr. Suzanne Billiar's backyard south of Williston is alive with the sights and
sometimes the sounds of Africa, but that is precisely why her neighbors are upset with
her. It's not the monkeys, parrots or the rare African crown cranes that bother them as
much as it is the big cats and a bear.l
Billiar rescued an aging lion, a Bengal
tiger and a black bear in late March from a
woman who had raised them since birth but
had health problems and was losing her home
to foreclosure.
"She begged me to take them," Billiar
said. v
Billiar brought them to her backyard with
permission from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. The woman also
gave Billiar two adult male' chimpanzees.
Billiar and her husband Brian are building the
chimpanzees a larger cage.
Billiar said she was not aware she needed
county approval.
"I already have a permit from fish and
wildlife to have the animals," she said.
She felt: the FWC permit was all she
needed since FWC claims the constitutional Dr. Suzanne Billiar holds Jour-
authority to decide who can- house captive ney, a young siamang ape who
wildlife in Florida and the rules they must clung to her side like a baby.
follow including cage size and construction.
Neighbor Mika Vuto heard rumors about what might be coming a day or two in
advance of the arrival of the lion, tiger and bear. She doesn't quarrel with Billiar's
motives in rescuing wildlife. She used to rescue dogs. But the issue is the location in
a residential neighborhood. Vuto has three-year-old daughter and is expecting another
child.
"I'm not against these animals. I understand where they're coming from. The issue
is where it's at," Vuto said.
When neighbors learned the big cats.and the bear were living on the Billiar property
they filed complaints with the county'development department and appeared before the
Levy County Commission last week to ask for county assistance. The county is requiring
Billiar to file for a special exception permit. The Levy County Planning Commission
and later the county commission will hold public hearings on the permit.
Billiar, a veterinarian from Ocala who worked at the Silver Springs attraction for
four years, said the animals she cares for on her property are not pets. Most are rescued
animals, including the tiger, bear, lion and two chimpanzees. She has photographs
of giraffes, tigers, lions, zebras, snakes and other animals she treated medically while
working at the attraction. She currently owns and operates "All Pets Clinic" in Ocala.
She ,nd her husband Brian gave a Journal reporter a tour of their facilities last
week. They say neighbors have created the impression the animals are a danger to the
community. The Billiar's wanted their side of the story told. Among other things, they
wanted people to know the lion, tiger and bear were born and raised in captivity. The
animals have never hunted for food in the wild. They are accustomed to interacting with
humans.
As Billiar walked around the facility identifying the animals by their name and
species, a young siamang ape clung to her like a baby and sucked his thumb. His name
is Journey. He has his own room in their doublewide mobile home complete with play
toys. When he is older she plans to breed him to a female siamang she has in a cage. But
she said her animals are not pets. She wants to use them for educational purposes. The
plan is for elementary school children to tour the facility a couple times a yeat.
"I don't want to promote having these as pets," she said. "It's mostly to teach people
not to have them as pets."
She pointed to Joey, the aging African lion who has arthritis and is extremely thin.
In the cage next door was Gidget, a Bengal tiger fond of having Brian Billiar scratch
her back through the cage bars. The Billiars never go inside the cages to feed or care for
them. They respect the power of the animals. Across the yard was a sleeping black bear
named Midnight. He refused to be roused from his afternoon nap in the cage.
They have constructed two 12-foot tall chain-link fences, about four feet apart, to
surround a future exercise yard for the big cats. The exercise yard adjoins their cages.
The Billiars plan to turn loose Gidget and Joey in the exercise yard together, assuming
they can get along. When the lion and tiger met nose to nose during the Journal's visit,
Gidget let go with a roar. Billiar'said the tiger was establishing herdominance. Vuto said
the roars of the big cats can be unnerving.
The exercise yard has an oak tree. The Billiar's plan to add cones to the tree branches
that will prevent the big cats from jumping off the tree and over the fences, although it's
questionable whether Joey could jump that high. He seemed to struggle to lift himself
off the concrete. By contrast, the tiger appeared healthy and energetic.
The Billiars meet all the state requirements for a state captive wildlife facility. Suzanne
Billiar said they can meet the requirements for the county special exception permit,
except for one. Her property is not quarter mile away from the nearest residence. The
lion's cage might be 50 to 60 feet from the home of Vuto. Billiar believes the quarter
mile requirement is arbitrary.
The Billiars said they have gone out of their way to make the facility safe. Brian
walks around with a sidearm strapped to his belt. If an animal escapes and they can't
capture it, he said it will be shot and killed. But they said the odds of an escape are
extremely low. Suzanne Billiar's mother lives perhaps 150 feet from the cages of the
lion and tiger and less from the bear.
"If we felt it was that risky we wouldn't do it," she said.


Joey the lion isn't much to look at. Veterinarian Suzanne Billiar said
he eats well, but she believes stress may be keeping the weight off
him and causing him shed hair. He is 12 years old.


Brian Billiar uses his fingers to tickle the cheeks of a Bengal tiger
named Gidget. She also likes to have her back scratched.


Midnight, a black bear, opened his eyes briefly before returning to
an afternoon siesta in his cage. He ignored coaxing from Brian Bil-
liar to take a dip in his pool. Midnight likes taking swims, but appar-
ently not if the swims conflict with nap time.


State official says big cat owner would have to sue on her own


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission has the right to say who can keep captive
wildlife and it also sets the rules for those wildlife
facilities, according to Johfi West, captive wildlife
coordinator for the agency.
But if Dr. Suzanne Billiar, the Ocala veterinarian
who has a lion, a tiger and a grown bear on her property
south ofWilliston, is forced by the county to move her
animals, the state won't get involved in the case.
"If Mrs. Billiar is forced by the county to move her
animals, it would be up to her to file litigation against
the county or move the animals," West said.
.Billiar rescued a lion, a tiger, a bear and two grown
chimpanzees in March and moved the.Class 1 animals
onto her property south of Williston. She already had
many exotic smaller animals on the property. She has
a license from FWC to possess Class 1 animals.
The county fined Billiar $54 for failing to obtain a
county special exception permit for the animals. She
is required to file for the permit. The permit will be
heard first by the Levy County Planning Pommission


and later by the Levy County Commission. The county
takes the position that it has the right to determine if
Class 1 exotic animals are an appropriate land use in
Billiar's neighborhood.
Mika Vuto and her husband Tony live within 50
to 60 feet of the lion's cage. The lion is housed in a
solid cage along with the tiger. Another tall chain-link
fence surrounds the cages. But Mika Vuto says she is
worried the lion or the tiger could escape and harm
their three-year-old daughter.
Billiar responded that she is housing the animals in
'strong cages that meet state requirements. An escape
is unlikely. The animal would be shot if it escaped.
Vuto is not satisfied.
"You can't guarantee these animals won't get out,"
she said.
She referred the Journal to an Internet web site
describing how lions and tigers and other big cats
have escaped their private owners in the variety of
circumstances in Florida and elsewhere.
She said Billiar should have obtained her county
special exception permit before moving the big cats
and the bear onto her property.
"I'm like a mother cub protecting her children, but


I'm also a logical, educated woman," she said. "The
point is these animals should not have been put there
in the first place."
Billiar said Vuto started the neighborhood
opposition. She said Vuto's pregnancy elevated her
hormones and probably caused her to- become fearful
of the animals.
SFrom the state's perspective, West said the state
looks at a number of issues before deciding who can
keep captive wildlife. It looks first at whether the
applicant should possess such wildlife, where the
animals will be housed and what type of facilities
would be built to cage them. '
If the county has an ordinance dealing with cages,
state law would prevail. If the county has established
a land use exclusively for residential, he said FWC
would recognize the land use as a place where captive
wildlife could not be housed.
He said the state also takes the position that if
business activity is not allowed on a piece of property,
"they can't have a Class 1 animal."
Billiar said she has used her facility for educational
tours and she plans to continue the practice in the
future.

Williston Rotary 'arrests' locals to raise funds


Story and photos by.Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Itwas a shocking day inLevy Courty
as about 15 leading businessmen and
businesswomen were issued warrants
and arrested. But the shocking part
wasn't that they were arrested; it was
that everyone was all smiles while
beipg taken into custody.
The Williston Rotary Club held its
second annual Jail and Bail fundraiser
Friday. While some were taken
into custody by Rotary members
and Chiefland Police Chief Robert
Douglas, some came willingly to the
"jail" First Presbyterian Church.
The "arrested" included Williston
High School baseball coach Jim Smith,
WHS Principal John Lott, Chiefland
Realtor Owen Baynard, John Gray


with Williston Peanuts, and Joyce
Bullock Elementary School Assistant
Principal Frances LaSalle. All were
required to provide, a $200 minimum
bail in order to be released.
They were all notified beforehand
so they could work to raise the funds
for bail, said Williston Rotary Club
President Jason Cason. Lunch was
provided after each had a mug shot
taken.
Janice Carlisle, vice president of
Perkins State Bank, was "arrested" by
Douglas at the Williston Perkins State
Bank while co-workers looked on.
In order to raise the $320 she
brought with her to the church for
bail, she sent a poem via e-mail to all
her co-workers requesting money.
It read:
"Off to jail I go


Dragging me by my toes
Please, please let me go
For my friends will miss me so
I won't last a day in the pokey
You know I ain't no monkey
Bread and water ain't my style
Crispy chicken, mac & cheese for
me!
So please please, please, release
me from this bondage
I can't make a call 'cause I got
Vonage."
There was a net profit of about
$3,000, Cason said. Last year's Jail
and Bail was much more successful
because it was an election year and
many of the politicians were targeted.
Rotary had a goal to earn half of
what was brought in last year, and it
did, he said.
"In this day and time, if we raise


$2,000, that would be a huge help in our
community," Cason said.
The money is used to benefit local
youth. Last year's proceeds provided
dictionaries to third graders at Williston
Elementary School and Joyce Bullock
Elementary School and $1,500 for
both schools, and it helped support
the Williston Rotary Easter Egg Hunt.
Something new the money will go
toward this year is to help sponsor a child
for the Rotary Youth Camp, a camp for
physically-handicapped children.
Carlisle said she had a lot of fun and
was happy to help out for such a noble
cause.
"What 1 like about this is that the
money that we're raising is for local
kids," Chief Douglas said. "What's so
respectable about Rotary is that they're
a very benevolent organization."

The characters sr


in my memory

By Rick Burnham
Editor


.une 1 was the fourth anniversary of my
Retirement from the Air Force, and on that
day I found myself thinking back to the
"' time when I wore the blue uniform.
The U.S. military is a collection of people
from virtually every corer of the country -
different people with different tastes and beliefs
and cultures, all working together to accomplish
a common goal. Black and white and Asian
and Hispanic, short and tall and fat and skinny,
wealthy and impoverished, educated and not so
much. They are all there, marching in step.
It is a marvel really. And it makes for some
vivid memories.
I would venture to say that of the thousands
of men and women I met and worked with over
22 years, 99 percent were the hardworking,
patriotic souls you would expect to find in the
military. People willing to make the ultimate
sacrifice for their country.
And then there was that other one percent.
Interesting. Eccentric. Unconventional.
Harold, from the Bronx, N.Y., for example,
stands out more than any other from my early
days. Harold had the biggest nose I had ever seen
on a human being, and to this day that holds true.
If he walked up to a door, he would have to do so
sideways because his nose would make contact
before he could reach it with his arms. It was'
amazing to watch, truth be told.
Harold was the first New Yorker I had ever
met, and, because of the bad language he used,
I made a misguided assumption that all New
Yorkers have both big noses and foul mouths.
Not all of them do, of course, just most of them.
And mostCalifornians are gay.
What other conclusion would a 22-year-
old come to after meeting Melvin Dinkins Jr.?
Melvin, age 40, rode a bicycle everywhere he
went and enjoyed a diet offish and only fish.
Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Fish. When he was not
at work, he wore this funny-looking cowboy hat
with the edges rolled up on the sides.
I just figured that everybody in California was
a little strange like Melvin was. Since that time
I have come to the conclusion that I was correct.
Everyone is a little off in California.
And everyone in the Midwest is mean-
spirited. That opinion was formed after I met
Elaine Brandt of Iowa, the meanest woman in
the world. Elaine had a perpetual bad attitude,
along'with a chip on her shoulder the size of
Rosie O'Donnell. Her voice shrieked. Her face
contorted. Her head turned all the way around,
like that girl in The Exorcist.
When Elaine arrived on the scefie,
conversations stopped. Mothers scrambled to
pick up their children. Birds stopped chirping.
Dogs ran out in front of cars.
I never really understood why Elaine Brandt
was so mean. Maybe she was abused in some
way as a child. Maybe some relationship she
was really into didn't quite work out. We never
discussed it because I had no interest whatsoever
in talking to her. No one did. If she looked into
your eyes long enough you would turn to stone.
And if Carolyn Wilson looked into your
eyes long enough, you'd do anything she
asked. Carolyn Wilson, of North Carolina, was
wonderful. A wonderful person inside and out,-
and a wonderful Air Force sergeant. She got
things done and got them done right. She knew
how to treat people and how to manage people.
And she'd accent each individual interaction
with a little bit of Carolina charm.
S So, naturally, I just assumed North Carolina
was the most special place on earth. Along with
Tennessee.
That's where Freddy was born and where he
lived most of his life, prior to joining the Air
Force.
Freddy Barton was probably the best friend
I made in 22 years of Air Force service. He
liked college football, and if his Volunteers were
playing, nothing else on Earth really mattered.
We'd go fishing from time to time, leaving the
wives to tend to the young'uns.
If there was a downside to ole.Freddy, it was
probably his drinking.
One Friday night he ventured to the club on
base to celebrate something or other and the cops
found him out in the middle of the street just
before daylight the next morning. I guess they
thought he was dead, because they cordoned
off the area. Then he sat up and gave them all a
scare.
When the fog in his head cleared, he told
me they had resorted to Tequila shots and the
evening went downhill from there.
His wife, from California, made him slow
down after that. I am not sure if she made him
wear a funny cowboy hat.
They are all up there in my head, Teddy,
Carolyn, Elaine, Melvin, and Harold. I think of
them and two dozen others from time to time,
reliving my time in the Air Force. They probably
do the same with me, chuckling out loud at the
goofy redneck from Jasper, Fla.

Candidate Obama appears different than


President Obama regarding energy policy


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

t was fun last week to surf the web and
compare what presidential candidate Barack
Obama was saying a year ago about his energy
strategies and what President Obama is saying
now.
In a New York Times Internet story on June 23,
2008, candidate Obama proposed tightening the
regulation of oil speculators to ease record high
gasoline prices and address one of America's top
concerns. It sounded great. Gasoline was selling for
$4 a gallon and diesel for about $4.70.
He proposed closing the so-called Enron
loophole, a legal provision requested by that
company in 2000 that exempted crucial energy
commodities from government oversight, according
to the nytimes.com story.
Candidate Obama also proposed preventing
traders of American crude oil from routing
transactions through offshore markets to evade
American limits and working with other countries to
better regulate oil-futures' markets, and he called on
the Federal Trade Commission and the Department
of Justice to investigate market manipulation of oil
futures.
Candidate Obama was one of us back then, at
least in his campaign speeches and news releases.
"My plan fully closes the Enron loophole and
restores common-sense regulation," the senator said
in a campaign statement quoted in the nytimes.com
story.
President Obama doesn't seem to have the same
views.
The role that speculative investment plays in
pushing up oil and other commodity prices is not
entirely clear, but that's only because.the federal
government has yet to launch a formal investigation
into the practices that led to the $4 per gallon
gasoline debacle of June 2008. Was the sharp rise in
gasoline and diesel prices back then causedby pure
market forces or corruption in the market?
Obama was obviously playing a campaign trump
card last June when he told the New York Times
that tightening the regulation of oil speculators
was needed to reduce spiraling gasoline prices. He
knew then that high gasoline prices were emptying
the average American's pocketbook and stifling
the American economy. He knew it would get him
votes.
But five months into Obama's presidency he
has yet to mention a word about regulating oil
speculators, or at least I haven't seen anything in
the news media about it. I think he has been largely
silent on the issue since taking over as president.
Has he completely forgotten about his campaign
statement to the New York Times, or was it nothing
but a lie?
Lately he has been meeting with big American
car manufacturers, or what's left of them, to
convince them to back his plan for tightening
Standards for air emissions on cars and trucks.
I don't think it was any coincidence that he and
Congress gave most of the auto makers a big
economic stimulus bonus check first. Obama's
emissions reduction plan is expected to add $1,300
to the cost of the average car. I can't wait.
He has also touted a tax on companies that
produce electricity with fossil fuels such as coal
and natural gas. With his cap and trade measure,
the electric companies and cooperatives would be
limited by the amount of carbon they could release
into the atmosphere. When they reached their cap
they would have to begin purchasing penalty credits
on the market. The higher costs would be passed


onto consumers.
It's amazing to me how different candidate Obama's
proposals are from President Obama's actions. Clearly
candidate Obama knew how to play on the fears of
the American people by promising investigations and
regulation of the oil commodities market at a time when
gasoline prices had soared to $4 per gallon in June of
2008, but his real priorities, at least thus far, have been
quite different.
It's my view that crude oil prices often rise when
artificial demand is created by the backroom trading of
oil commodities. We all pay a higher price for gasoline
and diesel at the pump when that happens. Obama knows
this. Why isn't he doing something about it? Why aren't
Obama and Congress pressing for regulatory controls?
It is an enormous tragedy in the American political
system when a single political party can take control of
the American government and force its politics on the
American people. The Republicans did just that from
2000 to 2006 when they controlled the presidency and
Congress. Now the Democrats have the big power stick.
They are doing the same. Bipartisanship died years ago,
if it ever really existed.
The Democratic energy philosophy is to reduce.
demand by forcing people to use less gas and oil. That's
what cap and trade is all about. That's what emissions
control is all about. That's what higher gas prices
at the pump is all about. All three strategies reduce
consumption by forcing us to pay higher prices. But it
also causes price inflation in the economy. It costs jobs. It
results in heartache.
Democrats are opposed tp more oil drilling on
American soil. They are opposed to more natural gas and
oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and the Continental
Shelf off the east coast. They live in the world of policy-
wonk politics. They are about ideas, not reality. Obama
reflects their lack of practicality.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries
(OPEC) must be laughing hysterically at Obama and the
Americans who oppose more domestic drilling. I'm am
certain the American educated economists working for
the Arab leaders have surfed the Internet and know that
the United States has vast untapped supplies of domestic
oil and natural gas, but we are unwilling to use them.
OPEC should create an international holiday to celebrate
American stupidity with regard to energy.
I'm sure the OPEC leaders also know of the
corruption in the American oil commodity markets.
But it's really none of their business. They sell oil. The
American people buy it. That's the way it works.
As gasoline heads for the $2.60 mark on the
anniversary of last year's gasoline pricing mess, it's clear
the stealing has begun in earnest once again. The oil
companies are continuing to make record profits while
the American people stagger under the weight of rising
energy costs. The oil speculators are filling their pockets
with cash, along with OPEC.
When I say it is disappointing the see the Democratic
energy strategy emerging in Washington, I am being
extremely kind to Obama and the Democratic Party. I
think the behavior of the Democrats thus far has been
nothing short of disgraceful. Everyone knows the United
States must eventually switch to a greener economy with
greener cars and greener electricity production, but in
the short run, perhaps over the next 20 years, we need to
employ common sense and realize that fossil fuels will
power our economy for years to come. The cheaper we
can purchase fossil fuel energy, the better off we will be
as a nation. The reverse is also true.
I am hoping the Democrats come to their senses
soon. Perhaps they are cooking up legislation at this very
moment to harness our fossil fuel energy reserves, dump
the cap and trade proposals, and regulate oil commodity
speculators. 4
I admit to engaging in wishful thinking from time to
time.

Be wary of postal claims
Mr. Burnam,
The Levy County Journal recently published
a story about three former employees of the
Chiefland Post Office.
Your readers should know that Federal law
strictly limits what employers may reveal about
a present or former employee. Employees,
however, are under no such restraint and may
distort by omission, or simply fabricate claims
and accusations as needed.
For this, and other reasons, I will not comment
on the facts of the case itself, or the persons
involved. I will say, however that U.S. Postal
Service employees enjoy a long list of rights and
protections under contract, regulation, and law.
Discipline of any kind may. be appealed at
many levels and in many forums. Employees
ihae many opportunities to make arguments,
offer explanations, and present evidence. Also,
contrary to what has been said, arbitrators
are independent, and are not employees or
contractors of the U.S. Postal Service. In fact,
arbitrators must be approved by both parties in a
dispute.
U.S. Postal Service employees have protection
and security, that is the envy of those in the
private sector. The only things that typically result
in termination of employment is violence or the
threat of violence, theft, destruction of mail or
property, possession of illegal drugs, and other
similarly serious offenses.
I ask your readers to take these facts into
account when weighing the credibility of the
claims and accusations cited in the Journal's
report.

PHE CHIEFLAND WA
The County Paper, Est. 1923


Festival, from Page 1

contestants young and younger.
"We had 95 entries," Tillis said.
"That is a lot for a non-political year."
Shortly after the parade came to a
close, attendees turned their attention to
the depot area for the annual watermelon
auction, where local individuals and
businesses bid on the best of the area's
crop of watermelons.
Norm Scoggins of Scoggins
Chevrolet paid $280 for an 85-pound
watermelon grown by Harold Tillis and
cousin, Kelsi Alexanider, marking the
36th consecutive year that Scoggins has
participated in the auction.
Other buyers included State
Representative Leonard Bembry, Levy
County Superintendent of Schools Bob
Hastings, County Property Appraiser
Osborne Barker, Doctor David Renaud
and local businessman Tommy Harrison,
among others.
Proceeds from the watermelon
'auction were "somewhere around
$4,000," Tillis said. She added that there
were plenty of watermelons around for
everyone, regardless of whether they
Sbid or not. The men's ministry of the
Chiefland First Baptist Church was on
hand to ensure the watermelons were
properly\ sliced and diced.
"That was a huge deal a huge
weight off our shoulders," she said. "It
is hard to find people to do that who did
:not already have something going on
in the festival. Osborne Barker put that
Together for us. It was a huge relief."
She added that another $3,000 was
r raised in conjunction with the Chiefland
Watermelon Queen Pageant.
S Hundreds gathered at Chiefland
Elementary School for this year's
Pageant, including watermelon queens
from around the region. Florida's
Watermelon Queen, Jessica Southard,
was in attendance, as was Alabama's
queen. Melinda Gooch. Newberry
Watermelon Festival Queen, Brandi
Harrison. and Teen Queen, Randi
Herring. also attended Chiefland's
event.
Chiefland Watermelon Festival
SPrincess Shelbi Crews was in the crowd
'as \\ell, as was Little Princess Morgan
Elmore, Little Queen Kimberly .King
and Little King Hayden Roberson.
Chiefland's 20.08 Watermelon
Festival Queen, Maddie Kelley, not
only attended this year's pageant,
but also had a hand in organizing the
event. An opening routine, in which
each of the 16 contestants danced to
TracB B\ rd's "Watermelon Crawl," was
choreographed by Kelley.
Pageant emcee Lisa Baxter
" commented on the bumper crop of
contestants, adding that recent contests
had seen as few as four.
The 16 contestants included Casey
Besterman of Cross City, Aimee Biehl
of Chiefland, Erika Drummond of
Chiefland, Delania Ducksworth of
Cross City, Erin Hayes of Williston,
Megan Hunt of Old Town, Jessica Johns
of Cross City, Rachel Kee of Chiefland,
Kala Kilpatrick of Chiefland, Christy
SKimbrell of Chiefland, Lacee Lane of
Chiefland. Sarah Megargel of Trenton,
Heather Perseo of Old Town, Tiffany
Smith of Old Town, Elizabeth Warren
of Chiefland and Raven Wilson of
Newberry.
Seven made ,it to the final round
Kee, Perseo, Lane, Drummond, Hunt,
Wilson and Hayes and were required
to answer a random -question after a
moment's thought.
Judges LaDon Terry, Deborah
Harrison, Cindy Vaughn and Katlynn
Kelly chose Wilson as second runner-
up, followed by Kee as first runner-up.
Baxter then announced Drummond
as the 2009 Watermelon Queen, and
the 16-year-old received her crown
from Kelley. Later, Drummond said she
misunderstood Baxter's announcement.
"I was completely shocked," she said.
"When they announced that Rachel got
first runner-up, I thought she had won it.
And when they called No, 8, I thought
'Oh my gosh that's me!'"
It was that kind of day for Chiefland,
Tillis said, a day that the local
community can be proud of. All around


town, people came together to support
the biggest day of the year.
"It took a lot of manhours from the
16-17 members of the Women's Club to
make it happen," she said, "but it was a
team effort the whole town can be proud
of. Our goal was to build it up and do a
little extra with it every year. We think
it was very successful."

Quotas make hunting


fairer for everyone

By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission

Most hunters know that the best time to catch a
monster buck off guard is during the beginning of
hunting season. That's why many of us enjoy hunting
the archery and muzzleloading gun seasons and
why we can't miss opening weekend of the general
gun season. After that, lots of gunfire breaks out and
those big boys get nocturnal, making hunting more
difficult.
If you plan to hunt on public land next season,
you've probably heard that the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) made
some changes to its quota permit system.
Phase I of the application process for most hunt
types has been extended from a 10-day period to a
month, and takes place June 1-30. During this period,
just like before, you may turn in only one worksheet for
each type of quota hunt. Remember: Unless exempt,
you must have an up-to-date management area permit
when applying for a quota permit.
The old archery/muzzleloading worksheet has
been broken into two separate worksheets one for
archery hunts and the other for muzzleloader hunts.
There. is a new wild hog worksheet, as well as the
familiar general gun worksheet. So you now have
the opportunity to receive four permits instead of just
two.

STANDING UPRIGHT BEFORE GOD (PART 2)


LWell, I was somewhat satisfied I'd gotten my
new purchase.home without killing anybody on the
interstate; but there was a twinge of regret since my
new antique upright piano now lay splintered and face
dqwn in the bed of my pickup after its precarious ride
home. I'd bought the dumb thing on a whim,'and you
Sai ask anybody, "wimmin" don't know squat about
piano hauling.
' Now the sun was sinking low, and I had no idea
how I was going to unload the monster before my
drive to work the next morning. I was examining the
logistics of rolling it off onto my holly bushes when
my big strong neighbor Caton wandered over.
-"What you got there?" he asked.
Every shred of decency in me wanted to say, "The
heaviest hunk of junk you ever seen in your life. Run
while you got the chance!"
Instead, I talked it up and rehearsed the story of
how I'd practically stolen it for $60. Poor Caton, too
neighborly for his own good, naively asked if I needed
help unloading it.
"Aw, well," I hem-hawed, "I appreciate it, but I'm
sure I can get it."
He looked a little skeptical, so after a few minutes
I let him talk me into it.
ISomehow I sorely misjudged the old upright's
center of gravity again. As we pulled it off the tailgate,
tle weight all pretty much shifted onto poor Caton. I
gasped. thinking of the lawsuits ahead. Yet, to both
o~r surprise, big Caton was able to throw his legs in
"granny low" and shuck it off of him. I'd never seen a
display of such raw strength, or will to live.
.As I stood there in awe, Caton gulped, stuffed his
eyeballs back in and attempted to straighten his back.
When that failed, he feigned a smile and hunched off
td his house without a word. I called out, "Thanks!"
I hope he heard me. I don't know. I didn't see him for
quite a while after that.
; From that point I closed the garage to all
automobile traffic. It became' my impromptu wood
restoration and refinishing facility. I nailed what I
could of the old boy back together.and commenced
a hand sanding campaign that consumed all my free
time. In fact, I spent so many hours scrubbing the
hide off that monster my kids began to refer to me as
"the dusty stranger from the garage."
SAbout a month into the process my brother Heath
came over to ridicule my work.
"That's all you've gotdone?" he asked, eyeballing


But Anyway...

with Guy Sheffield

the one little panel I'd almost completed.
I wanted to topple the piano over on him, but all
the energy I could muster up only produced a gag,
laden with about half of a lung's worth of brown
dust. Still seething, I rushed down to the hardware
store and purchased an electric belt sander. Within
a few short hours the once-dignified antique piano
stood naked, trembling, and ashamed.
Heath came out from watching TV and ridiculed
me for sanded all its edges off.
"It's completely uneven," he said wagging
his head, "Why didn't you just buy a can of paint
stripper, dummy? You'd of been able to wipe all that
old stain right off in five minutes without ruining the
whole piano!"
What I replied, after briefly computing the logic
of his analysis, even embarrassed that naked piano.
But anyway It's amazing how many flaws you
can almost cover up with a gallon of dark cherry
stain, not to mention how many naive work buddies


you can alienate by conning them into to helping you
move a piano. Soon my prized project was in the
house. It was a day to remember. The kids like to
refer to it as "D-Day." The day Daddy came home.
Of course, just because you move your killer
piano into the house doesn't mean all your problems
are over. I still had to tune the thing. Being too cheap
to hire a professional, I opted to send off for one of
those mail order piano tuning kits. How hard could
it be? When I found out the old boy boasted over
200 strings, it changed my tune a bit! And from the
way they were busting on me I figured they hadn't
been tweaked since the turn of the century the one
before last.
To sum it up, I never actually got to play that
piano. I'd simply become a slave to a hunk of junk
that caused me to risk many innocent lives getting
it home. It bowed the spine of a perfectly good
neighbor, sapped my energy, clogged my lungs, and
caused me to become a stranger in my own house.
Worst of all, I'd had to endure Heath's criticism and
hind-sighted wisdom! All I had to show for it was
the pleasure of tripping over the huge blight in my
cramped living room.
Since I've gotten the beam (piano) out of my
own eye now, let me ask you if there's something
in your life that shouldn't be there, maybe a sin, a
weight, or a hindrance that is sapping your energy,
ruining your relationships, and endangering your
health? Don't be as hardheaded as I was. Go on and
strip that weight off of your life today. Therefore,
since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of
witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every
weight that slows us down, especially the sin that
so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance
the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1 NLT
You'll be glad you did.
You'll also be glad to know I finally pawned
off that old killer upright as part of a package deal
When selling the house. I kept the tuning wrench
and belt sander though, just in case I find anything
else that needs to be torqued or grinded. I just hope
next time it's something besides my nerves.

Log Cabin QuiWters


; The Log Cabin Quilters met
June 4 at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. B. J. is going to quilt the
Dresden Plate at home as it needs
one person to quilt it. Our Attic
,Windows was put in and will be
:started next week.
Someone was nice enough to
bring four watermelons and leave
them on the porch. So I will make
preserves and watermelon pickles.
We give the good part to the children
to have frozen watermelon slush,
just take the seeds out, blend it and
i(


put it in cups and eat when frozen.
It's great.
Derick and six boys were out
Tuesday and they helped get a
bushel of cucumbers ready to make
Cinnamon Red Hot pickles. They
are so much help and willing to do
anything I ask them'to do. Thanks,
Lancaster.
Dinner today was chicken and
rice, creamed potatoes, meatballs
and gravy, fried eggplant, potato
salad, deviled eggs, pear cobbler,
chocolate pie and so much more.


This is a Pine Tree pattern quilt made by one of the Log Cabin
Quilters. '?

plication forms in coordina-
tion with efforts to enhance

District's Basis of Review are
revised to allow for submittal

conditions unless a timely
petition for an administra-
tive hearing is filed under
Sections 120.569 andl
120.57, Florida Statutes,
within fourteen days of reP
ceipt of notice. The proce-
dures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial
interests are affected by
the Department's proposed
permitting decision may pe-
tition for an.administrative
proceeding (hearing) urn-
der Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes,.
The petition must contain
the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in thie
Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard'
Mail Station 35, TallahaS-
see, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4),.
Florida Administrative
Code, a person may re-
quest enlargement of the
time for filing a petition for
an administrative hearing.
The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in

sel before the end of the

tition for an administrative
hearing.
Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those enti-
tled to written notice under
Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, must be filed with-
in fourteen days of publica-
tion of the notice or within
fourteen days of receipt of

tion 120.60(3), Florida Stat-
utes, however, any person
who has asked the Depart-
ment for notice of agency

LEGAL NOTICES


will be only at the dis-
qretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with
Rule 28-106.205, Florida
Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes
the material facts on which
the Department's action is
based must contain the fol-
lowing information:
(a) The name, address,
and telephone num-
ber of each petitioner;
the name, address,
and telephone num-
ber of the petitioner's
representative, if any;
the Department per-
mit identification num-
ber and the county
in which the subject
matter or activity is lo-
cated;
(b) A statement of how
and when each peti-
tioner received notice
of the Department ac-
tion;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are
affected by the De-
partment action;
(d) A statement of all
disputed issues of
material fact. If there
are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner
contends warrant re-
versal or modification
of the Department ac-
tion;
(f) A concise statement
of the ultimate facts
alleged, as well as
the rules and statutes
which entitle the
petitioner to relief;
and
(g) A statement of the
relief sought by the
petitioner, stating pre-
cisely the action that
the petitioner wants
the Department to
take.
Because the adminis-
trative hearing process is
designed to formulate final
agency action, the filing of
a petition means that the
Department's final action
may be different from the
position taken by it in this
notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be
affected by any such final
decision of the Department
have the right to petition
to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance
with the requirements set
forth above.
In addition to requesting
an administrative hearing,
any petitioner may elect
to pursue mediation. The
election may be accom-
plished by filing with the
Department a mediation
agreement with all parties
to the proceeding (i.e., the
applicant, the Department,
and any person who has
filed a timely and sufficient
petition for a hearing). The
agreement must contain all
the information required by
Rule 28-106.404, Florida
Administrative Code. The
agreement must be re-
ceived by the clerk in the
Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-3000,
within ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition,
as set forth above. Choos-
ing mediation will not ad-
versely affect the right to a
hearing if mediation does
not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section
120.573, Florida Statutes,
.the timely agreement of
all parties to mediate will
toll the time limitations im-
posed by Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Stat-
utes, for holding an admin-
istrative hearing and issu-
ing a final order. Unless
otherwise agreed by the
parties, the mediation must
be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of
the agreement. If mediation
results in settlement of the


administrative dispute, the
Department must enter a
final order incorporating the
agreement of the parties.
Persons seeking to protect
their substantial interests
that would be affected by
such a modified final de-

Mud Boggin'!


No one conquers the big hole at speedway


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

"That's a hole, man!" said mud
bigger Bobby Raulerson of Old Town.
His Everglades-style swamp buggy
had just been pulled from the deepest
hole at the new Bronson Motor
Speedway. He tried it several more
times but never conquered the big
hole.
? Raulerson stood more than six.feet
off the ground when he was at the
controls of the buggy. The wheels were
5 V2 feet tall. It had a 320 horsepower
engine. But the swamp buggy he calls
"Big John" couldn't plow through the
water and greasy red clay in the big
trench.
SNo one did.
SThe bounties on the big hole
remain. Speedway owner Tony Parker
is offering.$300 for anyone who pulls
through the 100-yard long big hole
with 49-inch tires or smaller and $200
bounty for 49-inch or bigger tires.
SRaulerson won $100 for driving the
farthest in the big hole before getting
stuck.
O* Arthur Conquest of Bronson was the
first to conquer the smaller hole Parker
has dug alongside the deeper one. It's
also 100 yards long.
There will be no mud bogging at the
speedway this week. Parker plans to
skip a week. Motor racing on the one-
third mile paved track was cancelled
Hut will resume this Saturday.
"'Parker said he accidentally
scheduled the mud bog at the time
when it competed against other mud
bogs in the area. He wants to check the
scheduling of other facilities before
setting the next event.
Mud bogging is an off-road motor
sport in the United States and Canada.
Getting stuck is part of it. Having your
vehicle change colors to mud gray is
part of it.
The mud boggers at Saturday's
event said they were playing in the
mud and having fun.
It was a family affair. Mud bogging
