Slow economy devalues tax roll


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


The effects of a slow national economy have trickled
down to Levy County and reduced the value of the
county property tax roll by about 11 percent, Property
Appraiser Osborne Barker said Tuesday.
Barker mailed the tax roll numbers to local
governments earlier this week. Levy County's cities,
the Levy County Commission, the school board and
other governments will use the information to estimate
property tax revenues for their 2009-10 budgets.
Lower property values will mean less revenue for
next year's budgets.
The property tax roll numbers were scheduled
to arrive at the offices of local governments on
Wednesday.
The Journal requested the numbers earlier this
week.
This year's property tax roll is worth about $253
million less than it was last year for the Levy County
Commission, an 11 percent decrease, while the tax
roll for the Levy County School Board is about $246
million less than the previous year, a 10.5 percent
decrease, Barker said.
The reason for the difference between the county
and school board numbers is that the second homestead
exemption for residential property doesn't apply to
school .taxes, which means the school board saw a


smaller loss of values.
. School District Budgqt Director Bob Clemons,
who had not seen the numbers as of Tuesday morning,
said a 10.5 percent decrease in values won't translate
into a 10.5 percent loss of revenues, .but it "will be
significant."
The county had no one available who could estimate
the revenue losses. Those officials were on vacation.
Barker said market values decreased everywhere in
the county because property was selling for less due to
the slow national and state economy.
He said some residential property owners won't
see much of a decrease in assessed value if they
have been under the Save Our Homes cap for many
years. The SOS cap, approved by voters in 1992 and
implemented in 1995, limits property tax increases
to 3 percent annually, or to the percentage change in
the consumer price index, whichever is less. In cases
where people have been under SOH for years, the
assessed value of a home for tax purposes is often
considerably less than what the home would sell for
on the market.
Barker said property sales continue to be slow.
Owners that are able sell their property are generally
taking less money for their property. Barker said he
realizes some people are taking losses, but the values
are being driven by the market.
"We see the trend is for properties to continue to sell
for less," Barker said.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task Force
Unit, working on an anonymous tip, converged on a
small Chiefland farmhouse during the late night hours
of June 23, finding more than $100,000 in marijuana
plants and the equipment used to grow them.
* Deputies also found two suspects they believe were
involved in growing the plants, apprehending one and
chasing another across an adjacent field.
Alionay Hemandez, 34, of Miami, was arrested and
charged with cultivation of marijuana, manufacturing
marijuana, possession of marijuana more than 20
grams and maintaining a drug dwelling. The second
suspect, Jesus Lopez, remained at large as of press
time. Lopez, who owns the property at 5550 N.W.
90"' Ave., hopped two fences and ran barefoot across
a field full of prickly-pear cactus plants. Two canine
teams and a Marion County Sheriff's Office helicopter

Finalists for


commissioner


speak out

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Two of the three men selected as finalists
for the job of interim District 1 Levy County
commissioner say the governor's recent decision
to continue accepting applications for the position
is a big disappointment and a surprise.
Abraham Blitch and Robert Lowyns said they
first learned of the governor's decision to continue
accepting applications in a Journal newspaper story
on June 25. They, along with Wilbur Dean, had
been selected in March as the top-three candidates
for the District 1 county commission post.
They had applied for an interim- position.
Suspended District 1 Commissioner Tony Parker
was indicted, along with Commissioner Sammy
Yearty, on bribery charges last October. The
indictments were announced on Nov. 5 and they
were suspended the same day by Crist.

Commissioner, from Page 1A
Lowyns said the governor's office had been telling
him very little when he called the appointments office
to find out the status of the selection process.
"The official word was that there was no official
word," Lowyns said. "It's kind of like a slap in the
face. I didn't know it."
Blitch said he believes it's fair to say the governor
has re-opened the search for applicants.
He had talked to the governor's spokesman,
Sterling Ivey, hoping to find out when a selection
would be made, but Blitch said he received conflicting
information.
"He doubled-talked himself," Blitch said.
Blitch said it has been eight months since Parker's
seat became vacant. He said the county commission
is a constitutional body that deserves to have a full
board. The Levy County Commission currently has
four members, one shy of a full board.
He said Ivey's statement in the June 25 Journal
story explaining why the governor is continuing
,to accept applications left the appearance that he
had done something wrong. In the story, Ivey said,
"given the circumstances surrounding the previous'
commissioners' suspensions, we are taking every
step possible to ensure the appointed candidate will
serve the citizens in an honest, fair and compassionate
manner."
"Because of that comment, I'm having to field
comments; did I do anything wrong," Blitch said.
Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy said the
governor's decision to accept new applicants is a
"slap in the face" for the 8,818 people who voted
for Blitch.
"Unlike the other applicants Abraham went out
and worked to win the election," Pomeroy said. "The
fact that he ran as a Republican and went out and
worked hard speaks well of him."
Ivey said his comment in the Journal was not
intended to suggest there was anything wrong with
the candidates who were interviewed and whose
backgrounds were checked.
"One of the things that happened internally is
that the appointments office director left a month
ago and was replaced, which 1 realize shouldn't have
affected the process," Ivey said. Michael Yaworsky
has replaced Pablo Diaz.
Ivey said the governor didn't say that he didn't
want Blitch, Lowyns or Dean. Ivey said they remain
candidates for the interim position.
"The focus has been to make sure there are no
additional people with interest," he said.

'Clamerica' all about those tiny mullosks


Story and photo by Tara Massagee
Correspondent

For the sixth year in a row, Cedar Key
will come out of its shell and honor those
tiny mollusks that make the town ever so
popular each year.
The Clamerica festival will take place
July 4 in Cedar Key at the City Park and
Beach on 2nd St., from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
There will be all kinds of activities
that will cater to the entire family, said
Leslie Sturmer, the statewide shellfish
extension agent.
There will be a clam bag race, clam
hunt, clam cookoff, bounce houses, and
fireworks at dusk. All the events are fun
and free, and some have prizes, Stunner
said.
"They (people) will have to have fun,"
Stunner said."There will be something
for everybody." '
She said those who are skeptical about
going to the festival because they do not
like seafood will not be left out. She said
the usual carnival food will be available,
such as hamburgers and hotdogs for the
landlovers who attend.
Sturmer said estimating the number
of people who will attend the event is


hard because "you just never know what
to expect," But she said for the second
straight year the Southeastern Tourism
Society has selected the festival as a Top
20 event for the month of July, and that
may draw more people.
"That affords us a lot of free publicity
that we just could not do," she said.
Cedar Key has not always been a
clamming town, Stunner said. She said
20 years ago no clams were grown in
Cedar Key but now there are about 180
local farmers who harvest millions of
dollars worth of clams each year. Some
of those also harvest oysters and crabs,
she said.
Mike Smith, who has been the general
manager for Cedar Key Aquaculture
Farms for 15 years, said clamming really
began when a group came in and retrained
the local fisherman to clam so they could
make more money on the water.
Stunner said clamming has become
a very important economic issue to
the community. In 2007, 190 million
clams were harvested in Cedar Key and
that equaled about $34 million dollars
in economic impact to the area, said
Sturmer.
"That's a big economic footprint for a

rural city," Sturmer said.
She said the sluggish economy has
taken its toll on the clamming industry,
and that the industry is really depressed
right now.
Smith said the economy has not really
affected his business because most of the
clams he sells go to the grocery stores.
He said when people don't have the
money to go out to dinner and instead
go to the grocery store and buy clams,


they are possibly buying his clams and
making the business money.
He said the bulk of his business is in
the northeast because clams are a staple
item for people in that area.
"Oysters are to us, as clams are to
people in the northeast," he said.
Smith said he hopes the festival will
"entice more clam eaters in the long run
and that they may keep eating clams
forever."

attempted to locate Lopez to no avail.
Captain Evan Sullivan of the LCSO
said the grow-house appears to have
been in operation for at least five
months.
"There was extensive work
and background involved in this
investigation," he said. "They hit the
house about 11:30 p.m. and arrested
Hernandez. Lopez bailed out of a
window and evaded -capture. We
have secured an arrest warrant for the
arrest."
Lopez left plenty behind, however.


Deputies confiscated 62 plants, valued
at $62,000, along with a 2007 Chevrolet
van and a 2006 Nissan pickup truck.
The operation and seizure amounted to
more than $100,000.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office
has offered a reward for information and
arrest of Lopez, who was born in Cuba
and arrested in Ft. Lauderdale in 2000
for being in the United States illegally.
Hernandez is also from Cuba and was
arrested in Ft. Lauderdale on 2004 for
illegal entry into the United States.

Sheriff's arrests

Brawl results in arrests for three Bronson men


Three Bronson men were arrested June 25 in
connection with a brawl on Margaret Street.
Willie Terrell Crowley, 34, 440 Margaret Street,
Christopher Cox, 18, 424 Margaret St., and Mark
Cox, 41, 424 Margaret St., were arrested on charges
of battery and causing an affray.
One version of the incident is that Crowley was
walking past a residence when he began arguing with
the Cox's. He allegedly picked up a rock and threw it
at Mark Cox who charged at Crowley.
Crowley's version is that he was walking home
with his girlfriend, Michelle Vanhoose when he heard
Mark Cox say something that he couldn't distinguish.
Crowley said he asked Cox to repeat himself, but Cox
told him not to talk to him and used a racial slur.
Crowley said he picked up a rock to defend himself
after he was tackled by Cox. Crowley sustained a
small laceration to his forehead and complained of his
jaw hurting, but refused medical attention.
Deputies were unable to determine who started the
brawl due to conflicting statements, and because there
was no independent witness.

Sheriff's arrests

Police say shoplifter had controlled substance on him


An accused shoplifter at the Chiefland
Wal-Mart Supercenter found himself
deep in trouble on June 18 when a
sheriff's deputy discovered oxycodone
in one of his pants' pockets.
Andrew D. Heston, 37, Cedar Key
was arrested on misdemeanor charges
of possession of drug paraphernalia,
retail theft and resisting arrest without
violence and a felony charge of
possessing a controlled substance
without a prescription.
Police said Wal-Mart security


officers first spotted Heston concealing
a pair of socks in his pants. He did the
same thing with a pair of swimming
trunks. Heston picked up several food
items and paid for them at the checkout
counter, but didn't pay for the concealed
clothing items in his pants.
Store security officers contacted
Heston outside the store and called
police. Officer Ryan Hinote asked
Heston if there was anything in his
pockets that could poke the officer.
Heston responded no. However the


officer found a hypodermic needle with
the end exposed along with three spoons
with pill residue on them in his right
front pocket. In his left front pocket
he found two prescription bottles, one
containing oxycodone.
* Chieflan'd police are searching for

ex-girlfriend's home on June 15.
Maurice A. Oliver, 26, allegedly
came to the bedroom window of
Danielle Burnett while she was sleeping

He broke out the window and
reached through to open it. Burnett told
police he entered the home without her
permission. Oliver attempted to scoop
up the glass and throw it out the window
before running away from the scene.

The County Paper, Est. 1923


The Levy County Journal


Ages

By Rick Burnham
Editor

F or the second time in less than
a month, the offices of the Levy
County Journal were awash in
birthday decorations last week.
For the second time in less than a month, a
Journal employee was celebrating her 23rd
birthday.
Memories of my 23rd birthday faded
away long ago. I was somewhere in the
Republic of Korea, defending freedom and
eating Korean delicacies that I probably
don't want to know the ingredients of. I
was also chasing Korean women, who, in
Korea, seemed to be everywhere. That's
what young servicemen away from home
for the first time do - make a general
nuisance of themselves by chasing the local
girls.
Five years later, by the time I turned 28,
I had settled down, having met the woman
of my dreams. Now married with a child,
we lived in North Carolina, surrounded by
tobacco fields and basketball fans. Not long
after, though, Saddam Hussein attacked
Kuwait, and the country - and my unit
- were thrust into a conflict in a place none
of us had ever heard of: Saudi Arabia.
We had heard of it, of course, but no one
really knew where it was.
The threat of war does funny things to
some people. Not long after that, the first
few gray hairs began to appear atop my
head, and wrinkles began to inch their way
across my face. I looked and felt older than
28.
Five years later, though, things were
markedly better, or so I thought. We had
accepted an assignment to Panama City,
Fla., right smack dab in the middle of the
best beaches in the world. I really like
the beach, and was just ecstatic about the
prospects of running around on the white
sands of Panama City.
The sun does funny things to morons
who refuse sun block though. And yours
truly was king of the morons. No protection
for me. No'siree. I am a native Floridian,
and the sun loves native Floridians. The sun
rays that hit us already have the sun-block
mixed in.
By the time we left North Florida, 1 had
a perpetual sunburn and looked somewhat
older than 33.
Five years later, though, we accepted
one of the most prestigious military
assignments out there - an assignment
to live in Washington, DC and work at
the Pentagon. I envisioned my wife and
I hanging out at the White House with
newly-elected president George W. Bush
and his wife, barbecuing ribs and telling
Al Gore jokes. Didn't work out that way,
though. It was long, hard hours followed
closely by more long, hard hours sitting in
traffic trying to get home.
And then came the terrorist attacks.
And the anthrax attacks. And the DC sniper
attacks.
Traffic and terrorists and anthrax and
snipers do funny things to a young man's
psyche. By the time we left Washington
in 2003, I was a relatively young man of
41 who appeared to be 70 years old. Gray-
haired and somewhat forgetful. But, we
were headed to San Antonio, Texas, where
I hoped to find peace and tranquility and
margaritas.
And then came the divorce. If you have
never been through one, trust me. You don't
want to. It is traumatic, a terrible, terrible
ordeal for all involved. Even when you are
not thinking about it, your subconscious is
working overtime, finding ways to remind
you that things might have gone better had
you worked harder to make it that way.
Divorce aged me in ways that war,
the sun, DC traffic and terrorism never
dreamed of. By the time I rolled into
Chiefland five years later, in the winter of
2008, I was about 102 years old.
Fortunately, coming back home, or at
least close to home, has a way of making
things better. People are friendlier here -
they say hello on the street and wave when
you drive by, regardless of whether they
know you or not. People live their lives ,
with humility, and other than an occasional
Friday night football game, they rarely go
to war, or start randomly shooting people.


Hopefully, the aging process has begun
to slowly reverse itself.
But I will never be 23 again, and as I
look around the streamers and balloons that
decorate this office, and listen to the giggles
and laughs that bounce off the walls here,
maybe that is a good thing.

Taking away gun ownership rights,


or slowly eroding them, is a mistake


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

was a gun owner long before anyone talked about
taking ownership rights away from us. I hunted for
squirrels, ducks, and later for deer and raccoons. I
used guns for sport in my youth. I have never shot a
human being. I have no intention of doing so, unless I am
defending my own life, or my country.
That's my gun owner profile in a nutshell.
In the last couple of decades, anti-gun advocates
have been working hard to take aia\ the right to gun
ownership guaranteed by the Second Amendment of
the U.S. Constitution. The National Rifle Association is
fighting to keep guns in the hands of private individuals.
We have a right to bear arms as American citizens.
That's what the Second Amendment is all about.
The idea of taking away gun ownership rights began
in the era of the illegal handgun. Criminals began
purchasing handguns on the black market and using them
to commit crimes. People were upset. The liberal left
began lobbying to eliminate private gun ownership in the
name of protecting the public.
Some members of the U.S. Congress still believe
taking away gun ownership rights is the answer. Others
in the anti-gun movement have decided the "erosion
method" is the best way to approach the concept of
robbing people of their gun ownership rights. They
believe slowly eroding gun rights a little at a time will
eventually get rid of guns in our society. They are
delusional.
Guns are a problem when they fall into the hands of
criminals. Everyone agrees on that point.
One of the big problems facing law enforcement
today is removing black market weapons from the hands
of criminals. The bad guys in our society enjoy the same
search and seizure protections guaranteed by the U.S.
Constitution as other Americans.
The U.S. Constitution protects all of us from
unwarranted searches of our homes and vehicles. Law
enforcement officers can't enter the homes or vehicles of
citizens simply because they might look like a criminal,
or may have committed a crime in the past. Police need
a warrant to enter a home, or they have to know a crime
has been committed or is being committed at the home.
Or they need the permission of the owner/renter to gain
entry.
Criminals benefit greatly from these protections in
my opinion. It's not the fault of law enforcement. They
must work within the law. The U.S. Constitution gives
everyone equal protections under the law. No group can
be singled out to receive less protection than others.
The anti-gun folks haveiyet to devise a legal way to
take weapons out of the hands of criminals. They know
criminals are committing most of the gun crimes. Their
response is to take guns away from everyone. That
approach won't work. Criminals will still have guns
when the rest of us are unarmed.
Gun registration doesn't work, either.
I bought a .22 caliber semi-automatic rifle and gave
it to a female friend of mine who was having problems
with intruders on her property. It was probably a bad idea
in hindsight, because the gun is still registered to me, but
she owns it. We're still friends and the gun hasn't been
used for anything bad to my knowledge.


I bought the .22 caliber rifle at the Wal-Mart
Supercenter in Chiefland about seven years ago. I waited
three days while the federal government ran my name
through a computer to make sure I wasn't a criminal.
Finally I was able to take the gun home. I went back a
few years later and asked the clerk in the sporting goods
department if Wal-Mart had a copy of the paperwork
listing the serial number on the gun. I had lost my
receipt. The clerk told me the paperwork was buried
somewhere in boxes in a back room and finding it would
be more trouble than it was worth. So much for gun
registration.
I am beginning to believe it would be easier to buy
a gun from someone I know rather than buy one that
I have to register with the federal government. There
would be no strings attached to the "black market" gun
and I could use it just like a new one. The black market
gun would have the same firepower as a new one, but
with no strings attached. Criminals also know these
basic rules of the black market. They know where to buy
guns and how to use them.
Obviously I don't believe gun registration is the
answer to taking guns away from criminals in society.
The criminal element in society doesn't use federally
registered guns to commit crimes, at least not on
purpose. If they were to use a federally registered
firearm in the commission of a crime, it would probably
be a weapon they stole from some poor sap that followed
the rules and registered it with the feds.
I favor taking guns away from criminals. We would
all be better off if they weren't armed. But forcing
law abiding residents to register guns isn't the answer.
Forbidding the ownership of guns by law abiding
citizens is a great tragedy and a terrible mistake, not to
mention a violation of our constitutional right to bear
arms.
1 doubt we will ever see the day when the federal and
state governments will form a giant posse and begin a
national campaign to search the homes of known felons
for firearms, and stop every suspicious vehicle they find
to search it for weapons. That type of sweep is only in
the movies. It's not reality.
1 think we're stuck with guns in this country. At least
I hope so. And that's a good thing. The fact that guns are
in the hands of criminals is a bad thing. 1 don't have the
answer to getting rid of armed bad guys.
But 1 don't plan to give up my weapons anytime
soon, either.
Let me add one more thought. If this country was
invaded by a foreign power, I believe gun owners would
quickly form civilian militias throughout the nation. I'm
sure the militias would be well-armed and motivated
to defend the country. I believe that's why the Second
Amendment of the Constitution guarantees the right
to bear arms. Our forefathers saw it coming. They
lived through an era when a foreign power invaded the
homeland. They knew the value of guns and of militias.
In the modern era, I think 9/11 should be a wakeup
call to everyone who believes we are invulnerable to
attack on American soil. It should be a wakeup call to
everyone who wants to eliminate gun ownership in this
country. We can be attacked. We were attacked. It could
happen again.
Let's keep our guns. We may have to do more than
hunt with them sonme day.

Letters to the editor:


Support for FFA and 4-H is critical


As we enter the dog days of
summer, people will be out enduring
our famous heat and our abundant
resources available to them; North
Central Florida is a great place to be.
Whether you're on a farm handpicking
blueberries for pies, cooking steaks on
the grill or enjoying watermelon on
the river with family and friends, this
area provides us with so many great
homegrown options to fill our summer
time.
During these times the agriculture
industry can easily be taken for granted
by those not directly involved in
it. However, we should not only be
thankful for our farmers, ranchers and
organizations like the FFA and 4-H. We
should also actively support them and
take advantage of what they have to
' offer and there are many opportunities
for the people of this district to do
exactly that.
As a former member of Future
Farmers of America, it is difficult
to overstate its importance to our
young people statewide. The FFA
contributesto agricultural production
and helps those involved hone their
leadership skills and develop as young
adults. They are also provided with


employment opportunities and can use
the knowledge and skills they gain to
improve their communities through
federally funded grants they earn for
local projects. We should encourage
our children to join agriculture
education classes and get involved in
their local FFA chapter.
Agriculture remains an integral
part of the economy of our state and
North Central Florida's farmers are a
4


key part of that equation. The cattle
and dairy industries remain strong
in our area, as does the farming of
cash crops such as corn, peanuts and
watermelons. Agricultural operations
stimulate the local economy as well.
Perhaps the most relevant example of
that is our vibrant equine industry.
Worldwide there are only four major
thoroughbred centers and we have one
right here in Marion County. Ocala
itself has 600 thoroughbred farms. In
fact, six Kentucky Derby winners were
produced in the Ocala area. This is not
only a great industry for the region but
also provides good, clean family fun.
One could learn to ride horses, enjoy a
carriage ride, go trail riding or take in
the races during a day at the track.
This area has some of the most
beautiful land in the state and in the
country. The state should and does
preserve some of this land through its
Florida Forever program. However we
must reserve enough land for the farms
that provide food for the citizens of
Florida. The agriculture industry in the
state must be able to meet the needs of
its people as best it can. When it can't
we begin to import products from
other states and countries which drives


up food cost. It can also result in
health hazards and disease outbreaks
which have become more prevalent
over the past few years. This country's
food imports have nearly doubled over
the past decade. As a result, we have
seen contaminated products imported
from China, Costa Rica, Mexico,
Canada and other countries that have
made us, our children and even our
pets sick. In the worst cases, deaths
have occurred. We must ensure that we
are as independent of food imports as
possible. Otherwise, we will continue
to import diseases as well.
By not only appreciating but also
supporting the hard-working members
of the agriculture industry we can
make our communities stronger hnd
provide more opportunities for our
children. We can also keep our food
supply safe and affordable and protect
jobs within our state. I encourage
you to support your local farmers and
take advantage of the many resources
and opportunities provided by the
agriculture industry. Contact your local
Farm Bureau or IFAS Extension for
more information.

Levy County should be part of the solution


Headlines from every comer of the nation
and our state are unanimous in their message...
the government bank account is running dry
and the cupboard is bare. Florida counties and
municipalities report that jobs are on the chopping
block, others will see wage freezes, services, are
being cut and in some cases taxes will rise. Levy
County is no different. The "Great Recession" may
be on our doorstep.
A recent statistic I read was that each American
household had a federal obligation, in 2008, of
$546,668.00. That is your household's part of the
federal debt last year, far more than most of our
houses are worth. We can't control federal spending
as easily, but we can work together to spend our tax
dollars wisely on a local level.
County budget hearings begin on July 7"T at
1 pm. These meetings, which continue through
August, with individual county departments up
for review, will focus on their estimated costs
for operating in 2009/2010 and questions will be
raised regarding departmental efficiency.
Too often meetings draw little to no public
attendance. To help you provide meaningful
comments, my website www.marshadrew.com has
numerous links to the existing budget and some of
the proposed budgets for next year. The website
"calendar of events" will also have the budget
meeting dates that everyone can and should attend.
I suggest that taxpayers educate themselves and
take part in the process.


Issues such as employee take home vehicles,
employee scheduling and an efficiency analysis of
the operating systems within our government are
all issues l've investigated and will bring to the
table for discussion.
We have many intelligent people in our
community who can help solve the crisis we
face. Margaret Mead said "never doubt that a
small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can
change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that
ever has."
Since taking office I've spent an enormous
number of hours studying our budget, looking
for ways to trim and reorganize. There is nothing
more difficult to undertake than leading a
movement for change. I need you to participate.
All of us, you and I included, grew during the
good times without much thought to our spending.
Government was no exception.
Surviving the lean years ahead will require a
spirit of cooperation and we will need to think
outside the box and consider new ways of doing
things. I have no doubt that some services we've
taken for granted will be cut. What they will be
I have no way of knowing. Our County budget
offers us numerous opportunities to change
wasteful spending practices, while retaining the
services that are critical for public welfare.
Department heads and county employees are
aware of the crisis and I'm happy to report most
are onboard and are willing to help in every way


Drew


they can.
I can't stress enough how important it is for
the citizens of Levy County to be present and take
part in budget hearings. These are your tax dollars
and it is crucial that you show an interest in how
they're spent. So often people pay no attention to
the process and then complain about the result.
Let's all be part of the solution.

Back-to-school drive


needs donations
Children's Home Society of Florida's Back to School
drive
, School may be out for the summer, but Children's Home
Society of Florida is getting ready for the start of a new
school year by hosting its annual back-to-school supply
drive. Many children eagerly anticipate the start of a new
school year, but those who have been abused or neglected
often look toward another school year with anxiety. While
their classmates can't wait to attend class with brand-new
outfits, shoes and school supplies, the children we serve
worry that someone will see them wearing hand-me-downs
on the first day of class or that their peers will learn they're
in foster care.
This is why we need your help. As we work hard to
ensure that these youth become strong students, we're asking
for help from the community to provide them with the
basic school supplies they need. Last year, our community
provided new backpacks and school supplies for 247
children. With your help again, we can ensure that even more
children are prepared to start school.
Please donate new backpacks, three-ring binders, loose-
leaf paper (wide- and college-ruled), spiral notebooks,
rulers, notebooks, pencil boxes, lunchboxes, colored
pencils, calculators, folders, pencils, pens, crayons, glue
sticks, scissors, markers, gill cards, and new or gently used
clothing.
Donations can be dropped off at Children's Home Society
of Florida offices in Gainesville at 605 NE I`' St 32601 or
in Ocala at 11 N Magnolia Avenue 34475 during July and
August of 2009. For more information call Ellen Roczarski

Republicans in the wilderness


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

A Gallup poll last week showed that far more Americans describe themselves as
"conservatives" than as "liberals." Yet Republicans have been clobbered by the
Democrats in both the 2008 elections and the 2006 elections.
In a country with more conservatives than liberals, it is puzzling-- in fact,
amazing-- that we have the furthest left President of the United States in history,
as well as the furthest left Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Republicans, especially, need "to think about what this means. If you lose when
the other guy has all the high cards, there is not much you can do about it. But,
when you have the high cards and still keep taking a beating, then you need to re-
think how you are playing the game.
The current intramural fighting among Republicans does not necessarily mean
any fundamental re-thinking of their policies or tactics. These tussles among
different segments of the Republican Party may be nothing more than a long-
standing jockeying for position between the liberal and conservative wings of that
party.
The stakes in all this are far higher than which element becomes dominant
in which party or which party wins more elections. Both the domestic and the
foreign policy direction of the current administration in Washington are leading
this country into dangerous waters, from which we may or may not be able to
return.
A quadrupling of the national debt in just one year and accepting a nuclear-
armed sponsor of international terrorism like Iran are not things from which any
country is guaranteed to recover.
Just two nuclear bombs were enough to get Japan to surrender in World War 11.
It is hard to believe that it would take much more than that for the United States of
America to surrender-- especially with people in control of both the White House
and the Congress who were for turning tail and running in Iraq just a couple of
years ago.
Perhaps people who are busy gushing over the Obama cult today might do
well to stop and think about what it would mean for their grand-daughters to live
under sharia law.
The glib pieties in Barack Obama's televised sermonettes will not stop Iran
from becoming a nuclear terrorist nation. Time is running out fast and we will be
lucky if it doesn't happen in the first term of this president. If he gets elected to
a second term -- which is quite possible, despite whatever economic disasters he
leads us into-- our fate as a nation may be sealed.
Unfortunately, the only political party with any chance of displacing the current
leadership in Washington is the Republican Party. That is why their internal
squabbles are important for the rest of us who are not Republicans.


"Unfortunately, the only political
party with any chance of
displacing the current
leadership in Washington
is the Republican Party."


Thomas Sowell


The "smart money" says that the way for the Republicans to win elections
is to appeal to a wider range of voters, including minorities, by abandoning the
Ronald Reagan kinds of positions and supporting more of the kinds of positions
that Democrats use to get elected. This sounds good on the surface, which is as far
as many people go, when it comes to politics.
A corollary to this is that Republicans have to come up with alternatives to the
Democrats' many "solutions," rather than simply be nay-sayers.
However plausible all this may seem, it goes directly counter to what has
actually happened in politics in this generation. For example, Democrats studiously
avoided presenting alternatives to what the Republican-controlled Congress and
the Bush administration were doing, and just lambasted them at every turn. That is
how the Democrats replaced Republicans at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue.
Ronald Reagan won two elections in a landslide by being Ronald Reagan-
- and, most important of all-- explaining to a broad electorate how what he
advocated would be best for them and for the country. Newt Gingrich likewise
led a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives by explaining how the
Republican agenda would benefit a wide range of people.
Neither of them won by pretending to be Democrats. It was precisely the
Republican "moderates"-- Bob Dole and John McCain-- who lost disastrously
to Democrats who were initially little known individuals but who knew how to
talk.

Who's funding the Obamacare campaign?


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

If you believe the White House, there are 30 million Americans who support
a government health care takeover. But if you look at the funding behind the
Obamacare campaign, it's the same few leftist billionaires, union bosses and
partisan community organizers pushing the socialized medicine agenda. Let's
connect the dots.
On June 25, a national "grassroots" coalition called Health Care for America
Now (HCAN) marched on Capitol Hill to demand universal health care. The
ground troops did not have to march very far. HCAN, you see, is no heartland
network. It is headquartered at 1825 K Street in Washington, D.C. -- smack dab
in the middle of Beltway lobby land.
In fact, 1825 K Street is Ground Zero for a plethora of "progressive"
groups subsidized by anti-war, anti-Republican, Big Nanny special interests.
Around Washington, the office complex is known as "The Other K Street."
The Washington Post noted, in 2007 that "its most prominent tenants form an
abbreviated who's who of well-funded allies of the Democratic Party. ... Big
money from unions such as the Service Employees International Union (SEIU)
and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, as
well as the Internet-fueled MoveOn, has provided groups like those at 1825 K
Street the wherewithal to mount huge campaigns."
MoveOn, of course, is the recreational political vehicle of radical liberal
sugar daddy George Soros. The magnate's financial fingerprints are all over
the HCAN coalition, which includes MoveOn, the action fund of the Center for
American Progress (a Soros think tank) and the Campaign for America's Future
(a pro-welfare state lobbying outfit).
HCAN has a $40 million budget, with $10 million pitched in by The Atlantic
Philanthropies -- a Bermuda-based organization fronted by Soros acolyte Gara
LaMarche.Also in the money mix: notorious Democratic donors Herb and Marion
Sandler, the left-wing moguls who made billions selling subprime mortgages
and helped Soros fund his 'vast network of left-wing activist satellites. By their
side is billionaire Peter Lewis of Progressive Insurance, whose "Progressive
Future" youth group has dispatched clueless volunteers armed with clipboards
and literature bashing Rush Limbaugh and Fox News to scare up support for
Obamacare.
And two more left-wing heavyweights joining the HCAN parade: the
corruption-plagued SEIU (which has battled numerous embezzlement scandals
among its chapters across the country while crusading for consumer and patients'
rights) and Obama's old chums at fraud-riddled ACORN, the Association of
Community Organizations for Reform Now.
ACORN and HCAN are linked by left-wing philanthropist Drummond Pike,
who heads the nonprofit Tides Foundation/Tides Center. As the tax disclaimer
for HCAN discloses, "HCAN is related to Health Care for America Education
Fund, a project of The Tides Center, a section 501(c)(3) public charity." For
decades, the Tides Center and its parent organization, the Tides Foundation,
7 have seeded some of the country's most radical activist groups of the left,


"The objective, in other words,
is to piggyback and exploit
Obamacare to improve and
protect their political health."


Michelle Malkin


including the communist-friendly United for Peace and Justice, the jihadist-
friendly National Lawyers Guild and the grievance-mongering Council on
American-Islamic Relations.
Pike is the same philanthropist who assisted ACORN founder Wade Rathke
after his brother, Dale, was caught embezzling nearly $1 million from the group.
Wade Rathke sits on the Tides Foundation board of directors. In a conspiracy
to cover up.Dale Rathke's massive theft of funds, Pike volunteered to buy a
promissory note worth $800,000 to cover the debt. These are the populist do-
gooders supposedly looking out for you and your health.
Why do they want Obamacare? An internal ACORN memo I obtained from
August 2008 makes the motives clear: "Over our 38 years, health care organizing
has never been a major focus either nationally or locally for ACORN," wrote
ACORN Philadelphia regional director Craig Robbins. "But increasingly,
ACORN offices around the country are doing work on health care." The goal:
"Building ACORN Power."
The memo outlines the ACORN/HCAN partnership and their strategy of
opposing any programs that rely on "unregulated private insurance" -- and then
parlaying political victory on government-run health care "to move our ACORN
agenda (or at least part of it) with key elected that we might otherwise not be
able to pull off."
The objective, in other words, is to piggyback and exploit Obamacare to
improve and protect their political health. The "grassroots" movement is not
about representing Main Street. It's about peddling influence and power at 1825
K Street.

Advanced irrigation and fertilization technology


is changing life on the farm. As a result, today's


Agrarians are not only farmers, but also


A worker at Coggins Farms fertilizes peas with a sprayer that is fitted with GPS equipment.


LIVE OAK - Life around the farm is about more
than plowing the field and planting crops these days.
Technological advances to irrigation and fertilization
help take the guess work out of crop production. And
they help save the environment, too.
Just ask Timmy and Mickey Tuten, of Madison
County. Their farm was one of 26 this year
recognized for environmental stewardship as part of
the County Alliance for Responsible Environmental
Stewardship program. The Florida Farm Bureau and
the Suwannee River Partnership created CARES to
highlight efforts by farm owners to improve natural
resource management in the Suwannee River Basin.
The Tutens are committed to improving the
environment by implementing Best Management
Practices (BMPs). BMPs help conserve water and
reduce nitrate pollution in grotmdwater that can
result from animal wastes and from fertilizers that
aren't applied properly.
Whether planting potatoes, tomatoes, onions or
squash, the Tutens use low-pressure center pivots
and drip irrigation. The systems not only help
conserve water but are also cost-effective for the
farmer.
Joel Love, of the Suwannee River Partnership,
said lo\v-preissure irrigation gives a more efficient,
uniform application of water.
"There are less evaporative losses because you
don't get the mist as with a high-pressure system,"
Love said, adding some of the new low-pressure
nozzles simulate rainfall.
Drip irrigation can also be used to apply fertilizer.
It spoon feeds the crop near the root and applies just
the right amount of water and fertilizer needed. This
ensures that nitrogen from fertilizers is efficiently
used by the plant so little excess will be left to enter
the groundwater.
"I love drip irrigation because I'm targeting where
I want to water," said Timmy Tuten. "You save on
fertilizer and you save on water."
To gauge whether their crops are getting the right
amount of water, the Tutens can hook up a laptop
to a soil moisture probe that reads moisture levels
for certain areas of the field. They also use portable
devices to test moisture levels anywhere on the farm.
Love said applying the right amount of water
is key. Over watering can wash fertilizers away
and result in nitrate pollution to groundwater. But
not applying enough water can result in crops
not utilizing fertilizers that have been applied.
Eventually those fertilizers will also get washed into
the aquifer.
The Tutens want to ensure visitors who come to
their farm to pick produce that they care about the
crop and the land in which it was grown.
"I see people face to face every day," said Timmy
Tuten. "When they ride up and you got a pretty crop,
it sells itself. Participating in the CARES program,
I want people to know that I care. That I care about
them and that I'm conscientious in being a good
steward of the land."
The Coggins family of Coggins Farms, in
Hamilton County, feels the same way. Managing
natural resources is just as important to them as
tending crops. That's why, theirs, too, was designated
this year as a CARES farm.
A worker manning a machine that fertilizes crops
can be seen driving through rows of peas at Coggins
Farms. But it is not just any sprayer. It's fitted with
GPS equipment which determines which crops have
already been fertilized and which ones have been
skipped over.


"I love drip irrigation ... You

save on fertilizer and you save
on water."

that were grown on Tuten's farm by using drip irrigation.


"It maps the field and if you overlap, it cuts
the nozzles off," said Mike Coggins. "That's a big
savings."
Not only is it a savings to the farmer, it also saves
our waterways and the aquifer.
Love said the more fertilizer that's put out at one
time, the greater the risk a heavy rain will come and
wash it into groundwater.
Workers at Coggins Farms also field test for
nitrate concentration. All it takes is just clipping
some of the plants' leaves and sending them off to a
lab. After the nitrate levels are read, workers know
whether they need to apply more fertilizer or less.
"We get tissue samples each week and then we
prescribe that week what we're going to put out the
next week," said Gerald Coggins.
The Tutens and the Coggins family were
recognized at the 9th Annual CARES dinner held
at the Dwight Stansel farm in Suwannee County
on June 25. Other Suwannee and Santa Fe River
Basin farmers and ranchers that were recognized
include the following: Michael Dukes, Union; David
Echeverria, Levy; Gary Jones, Dixie; Jack Meeks,
Levy; John Parrish, Levy; Roland Parrish, Union;
Kelly Philman, Gilchrist; Don Spradley, Columbia;
James Tallman, Bradford; Big Trees Plantation, Inc.,
.Alachua; Bud and Judy O'Quinn, Columbia; Ross,
James and William Terry, Columbia; Bryan and
Wendi Jennings, Columbia; John and Donna Risoli,
Madison; Corrence Fields, Madison; Jerry and Vicki
, Fletcher, Madison; Jesse and Beulah Cone, Madison;


Pati and Almera Blount, Madison; Mike and Debra
Knowles, Madison; W.H. and Emogene Fletcher,
Madison; Henry and Tanya Terry, Madison; Irma and
Fidenacio Torres, Madison; Harold and Troy Platt,
Madison; and Howard Mobley, Suwannee.
Since the Suwannee River Partnership began in
1999, 99 percent of poultry farmers, 90 percent of
dairies and 70 percent of crop farmers have agreed
to adopt BMPs for fertilization, irrigation and
waste utilization practices. Partnership members,
which include various agencies, residents, farmers,
scientists, educators and businesses come together to
protect the natural resources in the Suwannee River
Basin.
Love said managing natural resources is a
balancing act. You don't want to over water or under
water and you don't want to over fertilize.
Striking that balance can be challenging. But
some CARES farmers have received between 25-85
percent cost share from state and federal agricultural
agencies for technology and equipment needed to
implement BMPs.
Love said the CARES program benefits both the
Partnership and the farmer.
"BMPs are economical and they help save the
environment," he said.

Chiefland farmers among 26 noted at CARES dinner


(Gainesville, Fla.) - Jack Meeks of
Chiefland was among 26 Suwannee
and Santa Fe River Basin farmers and
ranchers who were recognized for their
superior natural resource stewardship
during the 9th Annual CARES dinner
held at the Dwight Stansel farm in
Suwannee County.on June 25.
These agricultural producers have
implemented verifiable state-of-the-art
management strategies known as Best
Management Practices (BMPs) on their
properties in the basin.
CARES - the County Alliance for
Responsible Environmental Stewardship
- was initiated by Florida Farm Bureau
and the Suwannee River Partnership
to highlight efforts by farm owners to
improve natural resource management
in the Suwannee River Basin. The
partnership includes local, regional,
state and federal agencies, research
institutions, industry associations,
businesses and conservation groups.
Farm owners who have met
verifiable standards of excellence in
resource management receive a CARES
designation and earn the privilege
of posting a sign on their properties
identifying them as award winners for
their good work. One of the keys to the
success of the program involves site
visits by public officials who assess
the implementation of state-of-the-art
resource management techniques at the
farm property.
Examples of BMPs include water


conservation efforts, animal waste
management and the strategic use of
fertilizer.
"Farmers have long been good
stewards of the land," Scot Eubanks,
assistant director of agricultural policy
for Florida Farm Bureau said. "Now
with new information and technology
available, farmers are able to be even
more proactive when it comes to
protecting the environment."
Eubanks said it is important to
recognize those involved in the CARES
program for their role in maintaining
Florida's natural resources.
"Farmers are the first
environmentalists," said John Hoblick,
president of Florida Farm Bureau. "Each
of these award recipients deserves our
applause and our appreciation for their
skilled efforts at managing our natural
resources. Florida Farm Bureau is
proud that they exemplify the work
of this state's farmers and ranchers
to produce safe, abundant food while
being excellent stewards of our land and
water."
The Florida Farm Bureau Federation
is the state's largest general-interest
agricultural association with about
138,000 member-families statewide.
Headquartered in Gainesville, the
Federation is an independent, non-profit
agricultural organization. For more

Local pastors take a lesson at Chiefland Elementary


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Chiefland Elementary School held
a program last week in an attempt to
bridge the gap between school and
church. Local pastors were invited by
Principal Patrice McCully to hear "Six
Sunday for Success" presented on June
25 by Doretha Jackson, the Faith-Based
Coordinator for the Parental Information
Resource Center of the Family Network
on Disabilities of Florida.
The presentation taught eight
representatives from local churches how
parent involvement is key in a child's
education and gave tips on how church
services can be used to teach parents to
get more involved.
"In this community, fortunately,
church is a very important part of
people's lives," Principal McCully
said during the presentation. "There
is a reason God created parents. They
have an impact on children that is very
difficult to break through."
The Parental Information Resource
Center of the Family Network on
Disabilities of Florida is a program
federally funded by a grant from the
U.S. Department of Education. Its
mission focuses on strengthening the
partnerships between families, educators
and the community.
Jackson presented a Powerpoint
that detailed tips on hoiv churches can
increase parental involvement and
therefore improve their child's education
in six weeks.
The tips can be used as part of the
pastor's message on Sundays, listed
in the program or bulletin, displayed
on the marquee or used in discussion
groups, Jackson said.
If every church in Florida enacted
these tips on the same week, Jackson
said the entire state would be turned
around. McCully said she wants that
vision for Chiefland.

Chiefland. from Paae 5A


The first tip, which should preferably
begin August 9, teaches parents that
everything they do with their children
should be a learning experience. It also
teaches children that their parents care
and that learning can be fun.
Week two stresses the importance
of tapping into children's interests.
Jackson said parents should. talk to
their children about faith, family and
heritage, which will hopefully open up
a love for learning.
Week three, is right around the time
children go back to school, which
means anxiety and apprehension. This
is a good time to pray with your children
and reassure them that they will make
new friends and tell them you have faith
in their success.
Week four involves investing time in
your child by listening. Instead of asking
a generic question like, "What did you
do in school today," Jackson encourages
parents to ask more open-ended, specific
questions like, "What are you studying in
English right now." This not only shows
interest in the child's education, but it
teaches children to pay closer attention
in school and prepare to answer that
question they know is coming at the end
of the day. She stressed the importance of
not letting children get away with saying
"nothing."
Week five is a very crucial part of
the program, she said. This is the time
parents should meet their child's teacher.
Make an appointment with the teacher
and set up expectations for the year.
The sixth and final week reminds
parents to continue to stay invested in
their child's education and continue
listening and encouraging them.
Jackson also presented a program
entitled "Six Sundays for FCAT
Success: Family Involvement is Key."
With this program, parents and churches
can become more involved in helping
children prepare for the FCAT, and the
Bible can be used in many different

tion Resource Center, shares a laugh with the local church represen-
tatives in the Chiefland Elementary School media center June 25.


ways to help with the preparation, she
said.
For example, children can be told to
write an essay comparing and contrasting
Cain and Abel, or given church activities
to construct and solve math questions.
Another way the church can become
involved in student academics is by
recognizing on a board of honor those
who have achieved school or behavioral
success, she said.
Representatives from different local
churches who attended the program
include Associate Pastor Steve Liles
and his wife, Pat, with Lighthouse Word
Church, Bill Knight with First United
Methodist Church of Chiefland, Eddie
Jean Williams with Mount Pleasant
Baptist Church, Rev. Robert and Rutha
Scott with True Gospel Mission Church,
Pastor Mike Whistler with True Gospel
Mission Church and Matt McClellan,
the music minister and youth pastor with
First Baptist Church of Chiefland. They
all signed a commitment form agreeing
to participate in the Six Sundays for
Success program.


Churches can also mentor students
or adopt a school or classroom by
providing supplies or chaperoning trips,
Jackson said.
Steve and Pat Liles said they definitely
plan to take the information back to their
youth director and incorporate the Six
Sunday for Success in their church.
Steve Liles said the program opened
his eyes because he wasn't really aware
that the church could get involved and
help the school system out.
McCully said she ultimately hopes
churches in the entire school district
will get involved.
"It's a way for schools to work
together with churches to get parents
involved," McCully said. "It melds the
best of both worlds."
She said there shouldn't be any worry
about churches becoming too involved
or the argument about the separation of
church and state because it's not about
the school or teacher standing up and
professing what he or she believes.
"It's about what's best for education
and the students," she said.


burglary, police said.
* A man who was found passed out drunk on
N.W. 14th St. on the night of June 24 was arrested on
a charge of disorderly intoxication.
Agustine Macedeo, 25, Winter Haven, became
combative when officers awakened him. He tried to
push them away.
He continued to resist officers. One of the officers
removed the probe cartridge of his Taser and touch-
stunned Macedo. He immediately complied with
orders.
Macedo could have been arrested for battering a
law enforcement officer, but it was believed he was in
such an intoxicated state that he did not intend to hit
the officers.
* A Chiefland man's lucky bullet turned out to be
bad luck for him on June 22.
Chad M. Hammock, 31, 206 N.E. 13"t Ave.,
Ghiefland, was stopped for running a red light *t the


intersection of Fourth Avenue and North Main St.
When police found an unfired silver hollow-point
9 mm bullet in his pants pocket, he told them it was
his lucky bullet. A check of his criminal background
revealed he was a convicted felon. He is not allowed to
carry ammunition or a gun as a convicted felon.
Hammock's driver's license allowed him to drive
only for work purposes. He was stopped at 1 a.m. Police
also found two small bags of marijuana on Hammock
and a pipe commonly used for smoking drugs wedged
between the driver's seat and the center console of
the car. The pipe contained a residue that field tested
positive for marijuana.
Hammock was arrested on charges of being a
convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession
of drug paraphernalia, misdemeanor possession
of marijuana and violation of his driver's license
restrictions.


a gun on a woman and struck her on the head has been
arrested on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly
weapon and battery (strike or touch).
James Oliver Johnson is accused of striking Kassie
King on the back of the head at her home. When she
grabbed a glass bowl and turned around to defend
herself, Johnson pulled a handgun from his pocket and
pointed it at her, police said.
Carlton Scott, Sr. came out of the bedroom to see
what the commotion was about. Johnson put the gun
back in his pocket. An argument erupted and Johnson
left the home when he found out it was Carlton Scott, Jr.
he was looking for.
He was later arrested.
* Jeanne Eileen Mathews, 32, Cross City, at 4:40
p.m., June 25, on a charge of retail theft less than $300.
* Michael Darnell Porter, 48, 17551 N.W. 68th

Methodist group completes work at Bronson church


For the past seven years Bronson United
Methodist Church has been blessed with the
generous help from a group of retired Methodists
who like to travel, RV style, and feel they still
have much to give from their past career and
work experiences. Several teams, which are
usually made up of four couples, have come to
the Bronson United Methodist Church, as well
as to surrounding churches like Williston, Cedar
Key and others.
"NOMADS" are sometimes referred as "Nice
Old Methodists Avoiding Deep Snow," since the
teams-that come to ourarea are usually from the
Great Lakes and northeastern part of the country
and they are here during the northern cold
months.
The actual meaning of the acronym is "Nomads
On a Mission Active in Divine Service." They
are mission volunteers who sign on to work
at United Methodist-related agencies such as
churches, church camps, homeless shelters,
children's homes, mission agencies and disaster
relief agencies. They also work at the homes
of needy families through host agencies. Some
of their projects include maintenance, repairs,
new construction, office work, painting, sewing,
childcare and gardening.
NOMADS who are unable to travel or
physically serve in the above noted capacities,
may find their financial or administrative ability
welcomed, to name but only a couple of areas.
The Christian organization began in 1989 and has
its headquarters in Shawnee, Kansas. You may
visit them on the web at: WWW.NOMADSUMC.
ORG
Bronson United Methodist Church applied for
assistance in the construction of new bathrooms,
a new kitchen, storage room, the Pastor's office,
and to expand the existing fellowship hall.
For many years, the approximately 70-year-old
.Anzonetta Epperson Circle, a group of dedicated
women of the. community, has made it their
mission to fund this project as much as possible.
Although this group is strongly associated with
Bronson United Methodist Church, it is, not
officially part of the United Methodist Women's
organization.
"It only enhances the church," said Phyllis
Cowart, church Trustees Chairperson. "One need
not attend or. be a member of Bronson United
Methodist Church to join the Circle; there are
members from other local churches."
She added, "10 percent of all the fundraisers
are tithed to community organizations."
With the funds raised over a period of many
years at yard sales, the holiday bazaar, numerous
other functions and private donations, they were
able to supply most of the finances necessary
to purchase materials to begin this massive
undertaking for a small church with a membership
of less than 200.
In 2008 and 2009, several teams of NOMADS,
together with the Meadowfarm Group from Ohio
giving three weeks of their time in 2009, supplying
the labor and one small grant, this project became
a reality. Steve Smith Construction of Bronson

countertops came from Lowe's.
In addition, a previous NOMADS' team put
in four full hook-up RV sites at the end of the
building. This allowed them to stay at the church
and has also been a blessing for out of area
visiting evangelists with RVs when they visit the
church. One NOMADS' couple between projects
also spent a week working on the parsonage this
year.
Paul and Mary Lou Stark from Honeoye, N.Y.
served on all three of the teams that came to
Bronson this year, leading one team. They had
been on a team at Bronson UMC during one of
the previous years. They have been NOMADS for
six years and served as team leaders on previous
projects. He is 74 and she is 69.
Mary Lou said, "We like to be gone three to
three-and-a-half months and some of the places
we have been include Yuma, Ariz., Ft. Stockton,
Texas, Madisonville, Tenn. and, of course,
Bronson and Williston." She added, "Some
places do not allow dogs." The Stark's do have
a. small senior dog who loves to travel in their
motorhome.
The NOMADS are responsible for their own
lodging, food, and all travel costs. A work period
lasts for three weeks, four days a week. This
totals 24-28 hours per week. The 2009 teams
estimated a total of 590 hours worked per Vtam.n
Figuring those hours, times three teams, plus one
drop-in couple for one week, at $18 per hour; the

NOMADS donated approximately $32,000 in
labor costs. They also furnish most of their own
tools.
Most churches try to furnish light lunches to
the teams each of their working days as well as
morning snack items, fresh fruit and beverages.
Team members indicated they liked having late
afternoons and evenings free to relax and prepare
for the next day, excepting special events.
Churches must apply one year in advance in
order for teams to be organized. Published in the
winter 2009 issue of the NOMADS newsletter is
the Winter/Spring Project Openings telling where
there are needs for teams and also for specific
team member needs. It also has the 2010 Project
Periods listed so members may begin making
plans.
Each team has a team leader who is responsible
for keeping all records related to the project
and helping to make certain a project stays on
task. They are also responsible for helping new
members on projects. Team leaders receive
training and each project must have a team
leader before acceptance can be made. Teams are
selected by a lottery process. Each team member
pays annual dues of $25..
Individual donations accounted for nearly
50 percent of the NOMADS' organization 2008
income sources with church donations making up
another 27 percent. Those numbers are expected
to change only slightly in 2009.
When asked why the Circle had continued
to work toward this particular project; Phyllis
summed it up simply saying, "This expansion is
meant to further God's Kingdom, making a place
for families of all ages and to encourage social
and other activities. My prayer and- my hope has
been made possible through many hands. God
was always a part of and in the process."
As there is a small debt outstanding, donations
are still being accepted and may be made by
contacting Phyllis Cowart at (352) 486-2860.
She may also be contacted at that number for
information about the NOMADS. (Courtesy,

Three Chiefland softball teams head to state tourney

By Rick Burnham
Editor .

Three Chiefland area softball teams
are headed to the 2009 Florida State
Championships in Ponte Vedra to face off
against dozens of teams from around the
peninsula.
Play began .Wednesday for the eight-
and-under and 10-and-under teams, while
the 16-and-under squad begins tournament
play on Thursday.
Eight-and-under Coach Kevin Williams , '
said the goal for his team will be to make
it to Saturday. By that time, seven of the
tournament's 15 teams will have already
headed home. The key, he said, will be the
team's hitting. .. '
"Everyone from top to bottom in our"
lineup can hit the ball," he said. "And last
week at the district tournament in Live Oak
our infield defense played well too."
The Live Oak tournament featured
teams from Santa Fe and Madison, as well
as the host. The team finished second,
losing twice to Madison. Chiefland also
beat Madison, as well as Santa Fe.

play with a 7;30 p.m. game Wednesday
against Altamonte.
SChiefland's eight-and-under team
includes Hannah Lundy, Reagan Couch,
Christyan Wetherington, Caylea Gore,
Taniah Bowers, Ashtyn Brown, Tristen
Drummond, Karlie Meeks, Randi
Williams, Macie Thomas and Kelsey
Miller. Tara Caplin, who played in the Live ..
Oak tournament, has since moved out of -.
town with her family. Joining Williams:
on the coaching staff are Mark Lundy and
Frankie Couch. . .
Chiefland's 10-and-under team, coached ..: .
by Jimmy Anderson, also competed in
district play in Live Oak and also finished . .
second. It's a veteran team, said Anderson.
Seven or eight of the youngsters went with
the Chiefland team to the state tournament
two years ago, finishing fourth.
This time around, he added, pitching
will be the key.
"We will go as far as our pitching takes
us," he said. "We are a well-rounded team,
with good fielding and good hitting. But
pitching is key."
A dozen other teams will vie with
Chiefland for the title, including Ocala
- which Chiefland played' Wednesday
afternoon. Teams from Oviedo, Ponte
Vedra, Fort Lauderdale, Melrose,
Altamonte, Winter Springs and Santa Fe
will also play in the tournament.
Chiefland's 10-and-under team includes

Unlike the other two teams, Chiefiand's
16-and-under squad begins play on
Thursday with a 10:45 a.m. game against
Ocala. Five other teams also play in the .
tournament, including a "Tri-County" -, - . - a .
squad, Apopka, Melrose, Creeks and,'''
Wesconnett.
Chiefland Coach Pamela Philman said
her team can hang with all of them as long
as they get good offense and defense.
"We have pretty good pitching," she
said. '\e just have to play good defense
and get some hits. We have been able to do


both those things, just not on the same day.
We need to have both at the same time."
Chiefland finished second in the district
tournament in Live Oak and third in the
recent Interlachen Invitational.
The Chiefland team includes Charlene
Davis, Shelby Philman, Amber Richardson,
Kierra Jenkins, Hayden Williams, Brittany
Barwick, Savannah Lago, Christen Trail,

Believe me; I did good compared
to some of the other fellows. One big guy named Jim
was brutally honest.
"I don't have anything to say," he croaked in a voice
low enough to trigger a tsunami. Then he folded his grms
and nodded to the poor sucker who was next.
"Now, that's worth the price of admission," I giggled
under my breath.
After a couple of weeks people began to loosen up.
I mean, really loosen up. They were shedding their

was getting a little nervous. What if Angie disregarded
my warnings and told off on me?
Eventually, I must admit, I could no longer deny the
teaching was helpful, even if it was causing Angie and
me to argue all the way home each night. I was even
enjoying my turn during the snitch-fest at the end. Most
of all, I was reveling in the fact that Angie and I weren't
the only couple at the church who still had a few issues
to iron out.
Maybe that's what finally helped old Jim to break his
silence. One night, out of the blue, he uncrossed his arms
and spoke a couple of sentences. OK, so it was only an
angry response to one of his wife's earlier accusations,
but it was a start! The next week he did it again. Too bad
it was our last regular class. Jim might have accidentally
bubbled over pretty soon.
For the final night they planned a fancy marriage
vows renewal shindig. They asked each of us to invite as
many people as we could and prepare a few words to say
about what we had learned in class. I was nervous for a
week. I could only imagine how Jim felt.


and transparent in these stories.
I believe people need to know Christians suffer the
same temptations, trials, and hardships as everyone
else. Unfortunately, we often sin like everyone else
too, despite having all of God's help. Yes, we all fall
short of God's glory. One of the biggest ways is when
we try to pretend we are holier than thou.
Christians are not superior people. We're just plain
folks who finally got honest enough with ourselves
to recognize our need for help, and finally accepted
God's invitation to hide ourselves in Christ.
God is calling you today. Why don't you climb
into the ark and be saved with us'? Ask Jesus to be
your Lord. For everyone has skinned; we all./fll short
of God s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved
kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did
this through Christ Jesus when He freed us firm
the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus
as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with
God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life,
shedding His blood... Romans 3:23-25 NLT
But Anyway,- Big Jim is one of my best friends
at church now, though I can hardly get a word in
edgewise around him. Hie's also one of the most
devout Christian men I know. He's the real deal. That
class really helped him come out of his shell. I guess
he just needed to know we Christians are all in the
same boat.

Ducks Unlimited event a success at Gilchrist Club


Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Ducks Unlimited, the world leader
in wetland and waterfowl conservation,
held a charity banquet and auction at the
Gilchrist Club June 25. About 50 people
from the Tri-County area showed their
support by purchasing tickets to the
dinner and bidding on exclusive Ducks
Unlimited merchandise.
Michael Michaelis, a member of the
board of directors for the Tri-County
Ducks Unlimited and the banquet
director, said the event .was a lot of
fun and was also a success in terms of
raising money for the Ducks Unlimited
cause.
A preliminary estimate of the net
profit raised by the event is about
$5,000, Michaelis said.
"We did as well or better than last
year in this rough economy," he said.
Tickets to the event were $50, which
included the meal, as well as a year-long
membership to Ducks Unlimited.
The money raised at a Ducks
Unlimited charity event can be matched
three to seven times over by state and
government groups, said Clint Murphy,
Regional Director of the South Georgia
Ducks Unlimited and who was in charge
of the Gilchrist Club fundraiser.
The money raised last week will go
to wetland and waterfowl conservation
in Florida and all over North America,
he said.
Ducks Unlimited got its start in
1937, when the extreme drought during
the Dust Bowl dramatically threatened
waterfowl populations. A small group of
sportsmen banded together and started
a grassroots movement to protect and
conserve natural waterfowl habitat.
Waterfowl are not the only
beneficiaries of the many decades of
work done by the organization. "Wetlands
improve the overall health of our
environment by recharging and purifying
groundwater, moderating floods, and
reducing soil erosion," according to the
Ducks Unlimited Web site.

Movie Choices for Kids


-I^


TRANFORMERS:
REVENGE OF THE FALLEN
(Running time 2 hour, 24 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Shia LeBeouf, John Turturro,
Megan Fox

I liked the first Transformers movie. It was
fascinating, especially watching the cars and trucks
transform into robots. But the second movie seems
to have lost its way.
Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen seems
like two movies spliced together. It begins by
establishing that Transformers have been on earth for
thousands of years. Then it cuts to Sam (LeBeouf)
as he prepares to go to college. Interspersed with
family scenes and college scenes are military scenes.
Washington and the military disagree. It's difficult
to know what is going on. Then the movie goes to
college.
That is the first hour. Now the movie transforms
into another movie as Sam and his friends find an
ancient transformer who tells them of a grand plot to
destroy the earth.
There is tons of action, but 1 couldn't figure out


which robots were the good guys and which ones
were the bad guys. The movie relocates to Egypt and
pyramids. The military goes in trying to help Sam.
Fleeing the bad giant robots, Sam and Mikaela are
always just one step ahead, like ants scurrying away
at a picnic.
The plot in the second half is original and
engrossing, if you can figure out what is happening.
The visual effects are dazzling as is the noise level.
However, it is very long. But Transformers: Revenge
of the Fallen is interesting. Tightening it up would
have made it a great action drama.
There is violence but little blood, some bad
language and some sexually suggestive scenes.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen should be
fine for children 10 and up who can follow the plot.
Maybe they can tell you what's going on.

MY SISTER'S KEEPER
(Running time 106 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Cameron Diaz, Abigail Breslin, Jason
Patric, Sofia Vassilieva

My Sister 's Keeper, from the book by the same


name, is a three-hanky movie. The plot is about a
family whose young daughter contracts cancer.
When the parents discover that neither of them nor
their son is a bone marrow match for their daughter,
they have a third child who is genetically engineered
to be a match.
The movie moves away from the maudlin issues
around death of a child and focuses in on the ethics
of forcing one child to have numerous medical
procedures to save the life of her sister. When does
risking the life of the donor child become equal in
importance to saving the life of the sick child? What
are the rights of the donor child?
These and other thought-provoking questions are
raised with no pat answers given. My Sister 's Keeper
is the portrait of a family desperately working to
survive major crisis. It is a powerful movie.
There is no violence or much bad language.
There is a brief scene of boy and girl in bed together.
The hard part is watching the sick sister grow
progressively worse. The movie makes her look as
sick as she is. This may be disturbing to younger
children. My Sister's Keeper is a good movie to see
with your child of 12 or 13 and older: Be prepared to
be sad, but to make peace in the end.


The Flying Squirrel


I'm not exactly sure how the
subject came up this past weekend;
it might have been the tiny stuffed
squirrel that came flying over the
banister rail during the vast overhaul
that was in progress upstairs. Our
teenage daughters were in the midst
of rearranging their rooms, which
involves moving truckloads of stuffed
animals and quite a few live ones,
too.
They had help in the form of a very
willing friend of our youngest and,
of course, yours truly. Husband was
at work and we women just cannot
resist moving furniture. It is such a
satisfying feeling to see the new, artful
placement of beloved (old) shabby
chic pieces (bordering on tasteless)
in the home; even more satisfying is
to hear said husband loudly exclaim
unprintable epithets when discovering
the new placement while on one of
his excursions during the peaceful
nighttime hours.
Anyway, the parents of our
weekend guest had come to collect
their offspring, and while gathering her
things from amidst the chaos upstairs,
the squirrel came sailing through the


air, which in turn reminded them of
their own nocturnal experience here
in Levy County a few years back.
Seems the wife was blissfully
sleeping, when suddenly something
landed at the foot of the bed on her feet.
Now, they live in an animal house also
(probably why we relate to them so
well), but she knew that this particular
thump was not Fluffy or Fifi. You just
know your own; they have their own
unique style of clawing or pawing -
as the case may be - their way to the
top of the bed where they can nestle
down beside you. (Actually, on top of
you so that you can no longer breathe,
which involves your getting up and
then they meow or whine until you
give them a treat, which, of course,
was their objective all along.)
But, as stated, she knew that this
was an alien invader and jumped
up screaming to her husband while
swatting the thing down to the bed. I
know I have mentioned recently that I
am of a ver* fair complexion, but she
(for sake of this story, we'll call her
Ruth and her husband, Ed) could light
up a dark room herself if need be.
Turns out the intruder was a flying


squirrel and he was intrigued by the
apparition of a pair of pearly white
legs and flew straight for them only
to misjudge the distance and end up
inside her nightgown. According to
Ed, there ensued a battle of flailing
arms accompanied by high-pitched
shrieks and squeaks, not to mention
raucous laughter. The laughter
stopped after Ruth sent them both
flying down the hall and locked the
door behind them.
Liking the homey atmosphere, the
little winged rodent decided that he
wanted to reside inside their home and
found one of his successful entrances
to be a very small crack between
decorative moulding and the fireplace
mantelpiece. Ruth said you could hear
him fluttering behind there looking
for that space just wide enough to fly
through so that he could then, you got
it, go straight for the legs. (I certainly
sympathize, having my own problems
with flying roaches going straight for
my bright white face.)
So Ed came up with what I thought
was an ingenious solution, that of
pouring Tabasco sauce along the
edge of the crack, hoping the smell


would deter the critter from making
an entrance. Au contraire. Sancho
Squirrel just came on in with a tiny
bag of tacos, devoured them with
sauce, and proceeded on to the legs.
By this time, Ruth had come up
with her own way to rid her castle of
the flying furball. She brought out her
own furball - resident fat cat -' and
placed him atop the mantle to lie in
wait. It wasn't long before he was
caught red-handed (or possibly pink-
pawed) with the little scamp in his
mouth and Ruth, precariously holding
the cat, who was holding the squirrel,
opened the back door and threw the
pair of them into the darkness.
Having been convinced he should
seek more welcoming (and cat-free)
lodging, Sancho Squirrel moved on,
much to Ruth and Ed's relief. They
have since spent time roping an
ostrich that landed in a nearby field.
If 1 had not had a four-foot tall emu
in my own front yard in the middle of
the city, I wouldn't believe it, either. I
just cannot make this stuff up. (Except
maybe the taco part)
'Til next time,
Wanda Kaye


Hi! Did you miss me?
Sorry, but once in awhile I
just close up shop and don't
write. But, like a bad penny
I always show up again - so
like it or not, you just have to
bear with me.
I'm sitting here trying to
write with a chair full of love.
Yeah, puppy, love. But is there any better love? I don't
think there is because they love no matter what. Nuff
-said on the subject.
My sister brought me a little kitten, yeah little!
But that little fella can make me scatdoodle out of the
room when she opens her mouth and spits at me. She



Log Cabfin




The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, June 25,
at the Levy County Quilt Museum. More squares are
being brought in for our "Rose" Quilt. They are all
different and in all colors. It will be a one-of-a-kind
quilt when we get it all finished.
We have many extra quilt books that we will
share. Ailene is going through all our books and any
extra, we share.
It was a busy day with great fellowship, quilting
and sharing ideas that go into making all kinds of
quilts and crafts.
Monday, B. J. and I went to the jail in Gainesville
to take 10, bags of clothes. These are .used by the
inmates going home so they will have clean clothes.
Derick and six boys were out Tuesday. It's hot
but they do what it takes to keep everything looking
great. Thanks, Lancaster.
Lunch was macaroni and tomatoes, green beans,
baked squash, greens, sliced tomatoes, spaghetti,
corn bread, peach cake, chocolate cake, watermelon
and much more.
_.j________------it -


may be little but she puts me in high gear. You might
think that is funny, but when she comes at me, my
feet just won't let me stay there. I can handle my little
dogs but that little girl can make me run. Ha, Ha. And
she is very tiny.
Hush, Donald, they would make you scat too.
I'm gonna finish this and take it to the Journal and
make my rounds for the day. Yeah, AA Restaurant,
Dollar Store, the bank, and the Post Office. Where
else is there to go in Bronson? I see all my friends and
make new ones too.
Well, I think I'll shut up and get up and get dressed
and go make my rounds for today.
Until next week. Be good and God bless.

Springhouse



Springhouse Quilters have been staying busy still
working on their own projects and now beginning to
think about Christmas and gifts that can be made. They
are also working on items to be included in the gift shop
during their quilt show in November, which will be held
at the Methodist and Baptist church fellowship halls
in Trenton. Members always have gift items that are
handmade and make wonderful Christmas and birthday
gifts.
The night group of Springhouse has held their
meetings for the last two weeks at Lynn's Country Cross
Stitch on Main Street in Trenton while the 4-H Summer
Sewing Camp was being held in the. Springhouse
building. To date, there have been 28 youth who have
attended the sewing camp. All are a part of the 4-Hl
program administered through the County Extension
Office in Trenton.
The next monthly day meeting for Springhouse
Quilters will be on July 14 beginning at 9 a.m. Show-
and-tell is always a big part of any Springhouse meeting,
and the hot days of summer provide times to complete
projects for show-and-tell.

Good luck guys!

Bowers, Peters, Welters take big wins at Bronson


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland racer Shelton Bowers was back on top
Friday night at Bronson Motor Speedway after winning
the Sportsman Feature, but the spotlight also showed
as brightly on Larry Welters June 27 Results
when he won in Street Stock SPORTSMAN
and Figure 8, and James Peters' 1. Shelton Bowers
when his outside passing gave 2. William Edwards
him a win in Pure Stock. 3. Jim Higginbothan
Tom Sullivan's win in 4. Arthur Conquest
Hornets racing was noteworthy. 5. Mat Blum
Race officials, knowing he was STREET STOCK
difficult to beat, asked Sullivan 1. Larry Welters Jr
to tie 100 pounds of weight to 2. Brent Cooper
his front bumper. If it slowed 3. Tommy Ausbumn
him down, it wasn't obvious. 4. Willard Driggers
He easily won the Hornets 1 5. Kyle Peters
race, weights and all. PURE STOCK
There was controversy in1. JamesPeters
the Sportsman when Blum 2. Aaron Welters
spun out of control early in the 3. Larry Welters Jr
race on the first turn. It wasn't 4. Jason Warsing
5. M Richardson
clear what happened. He was 6. Juan Montalvo
running side by side with 7. Wallace Jones
Arthur Conquest when he and FIGURE 8's
Conquest began fishtailing at 1. Larry Welters Jr
the same time in a pack of cars. 2. Jason Warsing
Blum lost control and spun to a 3. Aaron Welters
stop. He left the race and never 4. M Richardson
returned. 5. Matt Bastow
Bowers, who started the 6. Juan Montalvo
race in fourth place, began an 7. Wallace Jones
aggressive campaign to pass Hornets #1
cars and overtake the leader, 1. Tom Sullivan
William Edwards, who had 2. Kyle Pendarvis
started out on the pole. On the 3. Wade Parker
13th lap Bowers shot inside and 4. John Baker
took the lead. 5. Sammy Pruitt
His strategy of moving Hornets #2
up behind the race cars and 1. Scott Fowler
touching them to let them know 2. Robert Edwards
he was close behind apparently 3. Gerardo Garcia
worked. 4. Sean Fowler
"You let them know you are 5 DavidHarper
there and wait for a mistake," 6. Tommy Ausburn
Bowers said. "He made a
mistake and I slipped by."
Bowers said Conquest had timed him before the
race and told him he had the fastest car on the track
that night. Bowers said he had one disadvantage in that
he was driving without a headset and had no one to
tell him who might be on his tail. But he said the car
performed well and he found the groove.
"Once you get in your own groove you can really
rock and roll," Bowers said.
In the Pure Stock, James Peters started near the rear
of the pack but was able to use his speed on the outside
to pass when the inside track was blocked by other
racers.
Peters said the air pressure in the tires has to be fine-
tuned to pass other race cars on the outside, but he said
it can be done. He had no choice.
"I couldn't get inside. These guys were hugging the
bottom," Peters said. "You got to deal with the cards
you're dealt." '
Peters said it does take guts to pass race cars on the
outside even if your car is set up correctly, but he said
he loves to race in Bronson. He drives up from Winter
Haven every weekend with his family to race here.
"I love this track. This is a driver's track," Peters


Matt Blum (left) and Shelton Bowers race side by side in the heat race followed by two other
racers in the Sportsman.

bumper was dragging on the pavement.


said. "There's a line you can take around this track that
will make your car come to life."
Larry Welters, Jr. walked away with the Street Stock
race after quickly taking the lead from Kyle Peters who
started on the inside pole.
Welters said he was lucky. When he drove his car
low into the turns the car stuck to the track and gaVe
him the traction to overtake Kyle Peters' fast race car.
It was the first time he had driven that particular car
in Street Stock.
Welters' second specialty is the Figure-8 race. He is
undefeated this season. Racers run around the'outside
of the track, but they also drive at high speeds though
the two lanes in the infield. Drivers often meet in the
middle of the track. Someone has to give in or they
will crash at high'speeds. Welters drives as though he
is alone on the track, but he conceded the other drivers
are growingbraver. He laughed'
"We were all racing to win, but we were also racing
to put on a good show," he said.
The Welters' family had a half-dozen race cars at the
track. They like to win, but they also enjoy entertaining


the crowd.
In the Hornets I race, 21-year-old Tom Sullivan, a
Gainesville Eagle Scout, easily outdistanced the pack
in his Honda Civic. The car is equipped with a 1.6 liter
engine but doesn't lack speed or handling. It stuck to
the track as though it were glued on.
"On this type of track handling is more important
than power," He said. "If you can take the corners fast
you can win."
Sullivan had agreed'to attach 100 pounds of weight
to his left front bumper at the request of race officials,
who were hoping it would give the other drivers a
better chance to win. It didn't. Sullivan was leading by
half the length of the track when he finished the race in
first place.
It was his filth race in Bronson and his third win. In
one of his locs, he said the car's suspension failed.
His goal is to race Street or Pure Stock.
Sullivan earned his Eagle Sc6ut badge three years
