Sparks fly over



sheriff's budget


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Levy County commissioners have
balanced their $60.1 million budget
for next year by dipping into precious
reserve funds and keeping the same
millage rate as last year and by cutting
5 percent off the sheriff's budget, but
a sheriff's official warned Tuesday
the cuts would cost jobs and impact
services.
Capt. Evan Sullivan said the sheriff's
office could live with the $11,017,554
budget that commissioners have
tentatively approved but he said the
reduction in spending would result in
at least three layoffs and possibly more
and reduce the level of services.
"We just want you to know we can
cut the budget, but services will suffer,"
Sullivan said at a public budget hearing
in Bronson.
Sheriff Johnny Smith was not present
for the hearing. He was attending
a seminar related to improving law
enforcement services. Smith had
requested a budget of $11,492,161,
which included no pay raises for his
employees.
Cutting his proposed budget by 5
percent could create difficulties for his
department, he said.
"If I don't get the 5 percent back,
I will have to park patrol cars," Smith
said. "I won't be able to pay for the
fuel."


Smith said two of the three positions
are vacancies he could not fill, but
the bottom line is he would lose three
positions in his department.
. Commission Chairwoman Nancy
Bell, an accountant, said times are
tight and the sheriff's budget, being the
largest in the county, needed to go down
by 5 percent.
Bell told Sullivan if she examined
the sheriff's office budget she was
certain she could find ways to reduce it
by 5 percent.
The statement angered Smith.
"When she made that statement she
has no idea what she is talking about,"
Smith said. "She has never run a law
enforcement agency. For her to say that
is just wrong."
If the county commission sticks to the
budget cuts, Smith said patrol deputies
would respond to calls and then park
their cars, probably in shopping center
parking lots until the next call came over
the radio. Then they would respond.
Normally patrol deputies respond
to calls and then go -back on patrol.
The idea is to show a presence in the
community to prevent crime, according
to Sullivan.
Sullivan said burglaries and thefts are
rising as a result of a sluggish economy.
To cut the budget by the amount
commissioners decided on could impact
public safety.

Levy School Board negotiates with union


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


School Board of Levy County
administration met with union officials
last week to negotiate five board proposals
that, if adopted, will affect teacher salaries
and credit for teaching experience, as well
as endorsement supplements.
Jerry Copeland, with Education
Management Consultant Services Inc.,
represented Levy County Schools as the
chief negotiator at the July 15 meeting at
school board headquarters, while across
the table sat Suwannee River Service Unit
Director George Bowen representing the
Levy County Education Association.


Also present for the school board were
Director ,of Finance Robert Clemons,
Director of Personnel Candy Dean,
Assistant Superintendent Gina Tovine,
Director of Administration Jeff Edison,
Director of Curriculum Patrick Wnek,
and Hilltop Alternative School Principal
Robert Tumipseed.
Present for the Levy County Education
Association were President Cindy Roach,
Vice President Linda Yon, Beth Roach'
with Suwannee River Service Unit,
Vice President of Educational Support
Personnel Patti Fortune, Secretary Carmen
Ward and Secretary of the Bargaining
Team Cheryl Allen.
On June 25, the School Board declared


a state of financial urgency and announced
to the union that it would no longer be
able to honor step increases for teachers
in the 2009-2010 school year because
doing so would place the district below
the 2 percent fund balance required by the
state.
According to Florida statute, if a
district's fund balance drops below 2
percent, the superintendent is required
to notify the Commissioner of Education
in writing, and if the commissioner
determines the district does not have
an adequate plan to avoid a financial
emergency, he "shall appoint a financial
emergency board."
The step increase salary schedule


increases teachers' salaries every year
after four years of teaching and until after
completing the 19th year. Doing away with
the step increase would freeze all teachers
at their current pay.
However, according to a letter by
Copeland to Bowen' dated July 2, the
declaration of financial urgency and the
step increase revocation was withdrawn.
School board Director of Finance
Robert Clemons said there were a few
reasons for the withdrawal, mostly due
to the district's spending plan saving
$1,122,857 by "putting off spending
basically," and a significant increase in tax

Board considers tax hike


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The School Board of Levy County came
one step closer to making the decision of
whether to impose a 0.25 millage increase
for the county.
Director of Finance Robert Clemons
presented two options to the school board
during the public meeting Tuesday. Option
1 laid out all the budget information for
the 2009-2010 school year if the millage,
or property tax, in the county remained at
7.501 percent.
The total budget for the school board
would be $68,537,234.
If a staffperson's salary is worth $40,000,
the school board will need to reduce federal'
funding for expenditures by 69 people,
Clemons said. That means almost 70 people
will have to be let go or transferred to a
federal program so their salaries are paid
for with stimulus money.
Option 2, if voted on by the school board,
would allow the board to begin advertising
the school board's public budget hearing
that will tentatively make a decision on the
11


budget and the tax increase.
The final budget and millage will not be
adopted until the public hearing on Sept. 8.
If a 0.25 percent increase is imposed on
the millage, drawing it up to 7.751, the total
budget would be $69,424,576.
The millage increase would earn an
additional $515,764, raised fi-om local
taxpayers, which would equal $86.78 per
student in Levy County.
Additionally, the state has agreed to
subsidize 42 percent of the total millage, or
$62.57 per student, equaling $371,578.
"Only 58 cents of every dollar would
be the burden of local taxpayers with the
additional quarter mill," Clemons said. The
state will pay the other $0.42.
He suggested the $500,000 could be used
for salaries and to rehire some teachers, and
the $300,000 could be saved.
School Board Member Beth Davis
asked how the tax increase will impact the
individual taxpayer.
The millage increase will raise the taxes
to $7.75 per $1,000; therefore, based on

Commissioners vote to increase traffic fines in county


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Traffic fines in Levy County became more costly
Tuesday.
Levy County commissioners gave their approval
that increases the local surcharge for non-criminal
traffic tickets from $15 to $30.
The money can be used to fund innovations in the
court system legal-aid programs, local law libraries and
alternative juvenile programs. Levy County will place
the money in its Court Facilities Fund.
Clerk of Circuit Court Danny Shipp made the board
aware that the Florida Legislature this year had given
counties the option of increasing the fines.
Approximately 8,000 traffic tickets are issued
annually in Levy County.
In other business, commissioners received requests
from the county's two agencies that specialize in
recruiting business and industry to use the Baker
Building in downtown Bronson for office space.
Commissioners took no action on the request from
the Nature Coast Business Development Council, Inc.
and the Levy County Enterprise Zone Development
Agency.
The NCBDC once operated out of the Baker
Building but has since been moved several times. It is
now housed in the old road department building behind
a chain link and barbed wire fence.
Skipper Henderson, who chairs the EZDA, said
over the years the county commission has benefited
from the work of the agency creating enterprise zones
to encourage business development in the county.
"Now it's time to put your economic development
efforts out front...," he said.
Carol McQueen, who chairs the NCBDC, said the
agency now occupies the least attractive office space
in its history. ,
"We're just asking to be relocated where we.
originally were," she said.
Walt McJordan, one of the original members of
the industrial development authority, the agency that
preceded the NCBDC as the jobs recruiting arm for
Levy County government, said the NCBDC needs to
have more professional-looking offices when business
prospects come to town. .
"If we can preserve our image, it can be done much
better in the Baker Building," he said.
The request for office space comes as a result of the
disbanding of the county archives committee. However,
Commissioner Lilly Rooks said she had been made
aware that the county's historical society also has an
interest'in office space in the Baker Building.
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell said she has
had preliminary talks with Rayanne Giddis, director
of the Levy Campus of Central Florida Community
College in Chiefland, about creating office space for
the NCBDC at the permanent CFCC Jack Wilkinson
campus north of Chiefland.
Wilkinson donated $2.5 million to make construction
of the campus possible. College officials are predicting
construction will begin sometime next year. Bell said
- she believes the college would be an ideal location to
operate the NCBDC. Interns could assist the agency.
This was the first time Bell had brought the idea for

a campus office to the full board.
- Commissioners had planned to close out the
federal emergency claims period for residents whose
properties were damaged by flooding on the Suwannee
River this spring, but they postponed the move at the
request of Rooks who said clam farmers in Cedar Key
were hit with heavy losses due to the influx of fresh
water. Rooks said clam farmers are just'now seeing the
damage they incurred from the drop in salinity in waters
off Cedar Key. Emergency Management Director Mark
Johnson said he was unaware of the problem but he felt
the claims period should be extended to accommodate
the farmers.
- The board asked County Attorney Anne Bast
Brown to investigate what it would cost to participate
in a Florida Association of Counties lawsuit challenging
a recently passed state law that shifts the burden of
proof in litigation challenging impact fees to counties.
An analysis by FAC said the bill would likely have a
detrimental effect on county impact fee programs by
increasing the cost and prevalence of lawsuits against
counties and also by eroding home rule powers.
- Commissioners approved a settlement
agreement to purchase a piece of property in Gilchrist
County confiscated as a result of a drug bust. The county
will pay $2,875 for the property to Barbara J. Gunn and
Dennis W. Carson as a result of a plea agreement.

the total taxes would be $817.55 with Option 2,
compared to $791.19 with Option 1, according to
Clemons' handout.
The average taxpayer will pay an extra $20-$25,
he said.
"Should we hold millage as it is?" Clemons asked.
"It's a tough call; we all want adequate schools."
Brookins made the motion to advertise Option 2,
and Davis seconded the motion.
Clemons warned the board not to close the
door on the 0.25 mill because if Option 2 was not
approved today, there would be no chance to bring
it back before the final budget was adopted during
the Sept. 8 hearing.

money the district receives, he said.
"If we don't advertise it, the option is gone
today," Clemons said.
"We don't have to impose it until Sept. 8," which
will give the school board members the chance to
speak to their constituents, he said. "In my view it's
the prudent thing to do."
"Since I have been on the board, we have made
a great effort to decrease millage every year," Davis
said.
The board voted unanimously to advertise for
Option 2, giving them the opportunity to adopt' a
0.25 percent millage increase at the September
meeting.

- Commissioners transferred the assets of the
Gulf Hammock Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. to
Levy County. The agreement allows the county to
use its Levy County Fire Department to establish
Levy County Fire Station No. 2 in Gulf Hammock
to provide fire services that were previously offered
by the Gulf Hammock department. The volunteers
wanted to disband their department, but still, wished
to work as firefighters in Gulf Hammock. The new
arrangement allows them to work at Levy County Fire
Station No.2 in Gulf Hammock, which is owned by
the county commission and operated by the county fire
department.
- Commissioners were told that county staff
is not certain whether Chiefland Fire and Rescue
had renewed its contract with the county to provide
fire services in the city and the area surrounding it.
County Coordinator Fred Moody said a new contract is
scheduled to be approved soon, and he didn't see it as a
big problem. Moody said the county is certain there is no
approved contract with Fowlers Bluff for fire services.
Chiefland provides fire protection for Fowlers Bluff.
Moody indicated there may be efforts to consolidate
the two departments, much like the agreement between
Gulf Hammock and Levy County.

OBITUARIES


ROBERT "BOB"LUDDEN
Robert "Bob" Ludden of Old Town, Fla., passed away
July 10, 2009, at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Fla.,
from complications following a recent major surgery.,
He was born August 9, 1934, in Portland, Maine, the
forth child ofIsabellA. and Mandeville George Ludden.
He attended Portland schools and soon after his high
school graduation he enlisted in the United States Air
Force and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands.
In 1967, he moved to Key West, Fla., to be near
his recently widowed sister and her family. During
his years there, he was employed by Keebler, Inc. as a
distributor, followed by employment for Pan Am and
Lockheed-Martin at their Aerostat facility on Cudjoe
Key. In 1997, he moved to Dixie County with his
sister. He loved to travel and enjoyed horse racing at
major tracks around the country. He loved the outdoors
and pitching horseshoes.
Bob was easy-going, loveable and a friendly
person. To know him was to love him, according to
his many dear friends. With his love of travel he made
many special friends and he stayed in touch with them
and family through the years. He shared a special
bond with his sister who says, "He was a one-in-a-
million brother and it won't be the same without him.
His light will always shine."
Bob was preceded in death by his parents and a

Sheriff's arrests


Deputies say Bronson man stole from his own mother


A Bronson man whom authorities said has a
drinking problem was arrested July 11 for the burglary
of his mother's home. �
Andrew G. Phillips, 31, 9150 N.E. 74th Place,
Bronson, admitted to relatives on the phone that he had
committed the burglary, the sheriff's office said.
The victim, Linda Phillips, 9151 N.E. 68th St.,
Bronson, returned to her home on July 11 to find the
residence had been burglarized. A table and coat rack
had been broken, and a bottle of alcohol worth $20 had
been stolen.
Phillips believed her son was responsible because
he has a drinking problem. Andrew Phillips told
investigators he had committed the burglary of his
mother's home.
* Two Bronson men were arrested July 11 in the
act of burglarizing a Williston area home.
Terry Shane McLaughlin, 42, and James Andrews,
43, were arrested on burglary and theft charges after
off-duty deputy sheriff Wilburn Wells caught them
removing propertS from the home of Barbara Adams,
14850 N.E. U.S. 27, Williston.
Wells said a friend, Arthur Nussell, had called to tell
him that he was driving by his mother's property when
he saw two men on the property. When Wells arrived he
saw Andrews standing in the front yard and observed
McLaughlin walk out from the area near the mobile
home. Andrews was carrying an orange basket.
McLaughlin told the deputy he was out of work and
was trying to make a couple dollars collecting scrap
metal. He said he entered the Adams home through the
back door and cut wires and breakers from the breaker
box. He also stole miscellaneous items lying on the
ground outside the home. He had called Andrews to
come pick him up. He said Andrews helped him carry
the stolen items and knew they were stolen, the sheriff's
office said.
Several plastic containers were found approximately
20 yards from the front gate of the property. The
containers were filled with miscellaneous household
items, 300 feet of copper wire and several power
breakers. There was also a red bolt cutter in one of
the containers. McLaughlin claimed the bolt cutter as
his own and said he used them to cut wires from the
breaker box. A pair of wire cutters was also found in

permission to go into the residence and take perishable
foods and the DVDs. She said she was told she could
take the AM/FM radio.

he had been told by sheriff's office dispatch that Lt.

enforcement from Citrus County concerning a jewelry

Run for



your lives

By Rick Burnham
Editor


A n\ one care for a very frightening

=- Years agO I was working on my degree
1. J. at the University of Maryland when I
was assigned a book to read as part of an English
class. Since I am generally a fan of scary movies and
literature, I really looked forward to the reading the
book - Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein."
It is a classic tragedy, if you did not already know.
Frankenstein, actually titled "Frankenstein, or,The
Modem Prometheus," was written by Shelley during
a trip to Lake Geneva in 1818. The story details the
plight of a young doctor - Victor Frankenstein - who
discovers a way to construct a human body from
individual parts. He then brings his creation to life
through some sort of scientific reanimation process.
That's the good news for the good doctor, who
initially beams with pride over his creation. Theif,
though, when the thing comes to life, Victor recoils
in disgust, kind of like you would if you threw up on
the coffee table. Victor abandons the monster, only to
have it take revenge by killing his brother, his fiance
and his best friend.
Victor swears his own revenge, and the book ends
with the doctor perishing after chasing the monster to
the far comers of the earth.
Has life now imitated art? Another book, this one
a disturbing nonfiction work by author Phil Kent,
suggests that it has. "Foundations of Betrayal: How
the Liberal Super Rich Undermine America" tells us
all about George Soros, the ultra liberal billionaire
who is thought to have poured millions into such
organization as MoveOn.org, a political action group
essentially out to. destroy all things Conservative and
many things American.
If you have never heard of Soros, don't feel
sheltered. Our state-run media speaks very little of
him, not surprising since many of them tend to share
his political views. But, Discoverthenetworks.org, a
nice little watchdog website, offers compelling insight
into the groups that have been or are funded by Soros
and the organization he created, the "Open Society
Institute."
Among them- theAmerican Civil Liberties Union;
the Arab American Institute; ACORN; the Center
z.q-Communitv Chanige&'ree Press (a media reform
,gipup that % orks directly with a list of disturbing
clients, such as the Revolutionary Communist Party)
and the L\nne Stewart Defense Committee. Stewart,
you may know was convicted for illegally assisting
her client - Omar Abdel Rahman, the "blind sheik"
- in terrorism-related court cases.
You get the idea. George Soros is one of those
misguided and demented "Americans" who thinks
our country is an oppressive nation and needs to be
knocked down a notch. They despise our military
might, promote open borders (the name Open Society
is no coincidence) and mass immigration, and would
like to see American foreign policy brought under the
control of the United Nations.
One of the methods to achieve those goals and
many more just like them is to promote the election of
leftist candidates in the United States. The most leftist
of those candidates now resides in the White House.
Hence the analogy.
President Barack Obama ascended to the throne
with the help of the many a leftist organization - name
one and there is a very good chance that they helped
out somewhere along the way. That includes the
national media. If George Soros is the Wicked Witch
of the West, then the national media are his flying
monkeys.
Soros and his minions created this monster - equal
parts Socialist, environmental activist, abortion
proponent, and radical tax-and-spend enthusiast.
They almost certainly beamed at their creation
early on. They applauded when he promised to turn
the terrorists of GITMO loose, giggled during his
European apology tour in the spring, gave each other
fist-bumps and high fives as Obama cuddled up to
South American dictators Fidel Castro and Hugo
Chavez, and nodded approvingly when he nominated
a woman with a history of racist comments to be a
Supreme Court Justice.
Lately though, the enablers of Barack Obama have
begun to recoil at the new president, as if they had
thrown up on the coffee table and not liked the looks
of it. Colin Powell wondered aloud how we could
possibly pay for all the programs created by the new
president. Billionaire Warren Buffet, another Obama
supporter, has warned of impending inflation. Soros
S himself thinks that impending inflation will "choke
off" whatever recovery might eventually emerge from
Sthe current mess we find ourselves in.
In other words, they just wanted America taken


down a notch or two, not destroyed.
To paraphrase what I told that local guy the other
day, the one who voted for Obama because of the
prospects of free government healthcare,'but now
wonders aloud whether, all things considered, that was
a good idea: it's a little late, don 'tyou think?
Frankenstein is on the loose. Run for your lives.

Chiefland had dubious distinction of


having highest gas prices on my trip


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


When 1 left Chiefland on July 12 for
week-long vacation in Wisconsin I
wasn't sure what to expect in terms
of gasoline prices on the Interstate
highway system, but I based my gloom and doom
projections on what I was paying at the pump in
Chiefland. I figured gasoline prices were about the
same everywhere. I was wrong.
Along the route I took, Chiefland gasoline
retailers had the highest prices for regular test
gasoline in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky
and Wisconsin. 1 paid $2.69 per gallon for regular
test gasoline on the day 1 headed to the North-
country. I paid $2.29 per gallon for regular test in
Georgia and $2.29 per gallon in Chattanodga the
same day. In Kentucky I paid $2.49 for regular test.
In Illinois the price was $2.57 per gallon the
second day of my trip and $2.49 per gallon in
northern Wisconsin on my second day. The prices
in Wisconsin and Illinois were closer to what I
paid here, but still cheaper than Chiefland. When
I returned to Chiefland I checked the Internet and
found there were places in Wisconsin where I could
have bought gas for as low as $2.23 per gallon for
regular test.
On July 18, the day I started my trip back
to Florida I paid $2.49 per gallon in Chetek,
Wisconsin, a small tourist town where I had stayed,
for the week with my sister and her husband. I paid
$2.42 per gallon in El Paso, Illinois. The following
day I paid $2.39 per gallon on Monteagle Mountain
in Tennessee and $2.28 per gallon for regular just
south of Macon, Georgia.
To be fair, gasoline taxes are higher in Florida,
Wisconsin and Illinois, the states where I paid the
highest prices for gasoline. According to a web
site I visited, federal, state and local gasoline taxes
in Georgia are 31.4 cents per gallon, or about 21
cents per gallon less than in Florida. Gas taxes are
52.9 cents per gallon in Florida at most locations.
Florida gas taxes can vary because county
governments can assess up to 12 cents per gallon.
Levy County assesses 6 cents
Gas taxes in Tennessee are 39.8 cents per gallon
or 13 cents per gallon cheaper than Florida. Illinois
drivers pay 57.2 cents per gallon in taxes and
Wisconsin 51.3 cents.
It is obvious gasoline taxes are a factor in what
we pay at the pump, but the fact that I paid 20 cents
more in gas taxes at the pump in Chiefland doesn't
explain why I paid 40 cents more at the pump than I
did in Georgia and Tennessee.
I've noticed lately that gas prices are dropping
just a bit, or leveling off. Prices at the pump
dropped a few cents in Chiefland during my
vacation. That's certainly good news. But the prices
are far too high nationwide to suit me. It's little
wonder to me that our economic recovery has been
slow. Gasoline and diesel prices are adding to the
cost of everything we purchase.
I complain often in these columns about the
price of gasoline and diesel and the effects those
prices have on the national and local economy.
Higher motor fuel prices are a big factor in
inflation. The price of fuel increases transportation
costs. Higher transportation costs raise the cost
of food, clothing, tires, medicine and just about


everything we consume.
My feeling is that Congress needs to more
closely regulate the trading of oil futures and place
limits on what gasoline and diesel can cost at the
pump. But I also believe strongly that we need
to begin drilling for more domestic oil supplies
at inland sites and along our coasts. Former vice
presidential candidate Sarah Palin had it right. Drill
baby, drill. Or face the consequences at the pump.
I'm afraid the Democrats are going to force
me to begin voting Republican in the next
congressional election in 2010. The Democrats are
leading the fight to prevent additional domestic
oil drilling and lessen greenhouse gas emissions.
Greenhouse gases are blamed for global warming.
I'm beginning to wonder if global warming is
someone's hallucination.
During my visit to Wisconsin, I learned that
the state is having one of those cool summers.
While staying at my sister's house the temperature
outside never made it to 70 degrees. The last three
days I was there the thermometer never hit the 60
degree mark. Occasionally it rained a little. It was
a pleasant change from the 90s down here. But the
temperatures were 15 degrees below normal. So
where was the global warming?
I wonder if the sacrifices the Democrats want
us to make in the name of cleaner air can be
justified by the science behind global warming
and climate change, assuming there is a science
behind it. Meteorology has been around for less
than a century. Weather satellites have been in
existence for about a quarter of a century. But
even now, when weather systems can be seen from
space, the forecasts on national television are often
inaccurate. The forecasts for the projected path of
hurricanes can change hour to hour. Meteorological
science is in its infancy, even now. The mere fact
that, we can look at weather as it develops doesn't
mean we have much understanding about it. Our
understanding of global weather patterns and global
climate change is even more primitive.
I think we do need to look at global climate
change and get a better handle on what it means to
us before we begin tampering with our entire fossil
fuel infrastructure and before we do something that
shoots gasoline and diesel prices up to the $4 per
gallon range again, as it was in June of 2008.
The prices I paid for gasoline along the
Interstate, arid off the Interstate, were lower than
they were a year ago, but still excessive. The price
of fuel remains inflationary. The high prices are
also discouraging to the average American who
wonders why the government has no control over a
commodity that dramatically influences how much
money they have in their pockets.
I think the country needs to operate on parallel
tracks for a period of time. Imagine two railroad
tracks running side by side. One track carries
the fossil fuel train. The other carries greener
technologies. They must operate side by side for
an indefinite period of time until the fossil fuel
technologies can be phased out. That could take 30
years, but it will happen.
Until then, I will have to fill my Pontiac Sunfire
with good ole fossil fuels, otherwise known as
gasoline. I can only hope that our leaders in
Washington won't derail the fossil fuel train before
the average person, like me, can transition to what
the Democrats envision as a greener future.

Two scientists, two standards


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

he New York Times recently warned its readers about a wacky scientist
in the Obama administration. But the fish wrap of record let the real nut
job off the hook.
Reporting last week on the president's choice to head the National
Institutes of Health, Times writer Gardiner Harris noted that praise for Dr.
Francis S. Collins "was not universal or entirely enthusiastic." The geneticist is
causing "unease," according to the Times, because of "his very public embrace of
religion." Stomachs are apparently churning over a book Collins wrote describing
his conversion to Christianity.
It's called -- gasp! -- "The Language of God." Harris intoned: "Religion
and genetic research have long had a fraught relationship, and some in the field
complain abouf what they see as Dr. Collins' evangelism."
And ... that's it. Yes, the mere profession of Collins' faith is enough to
warrant red flags and ominous declamations. A quarter of all Americans identify
themselves as evangelical Christians and "publicly embrace their religion." But to
the Times, Collins' open affiliation with 60 million American believers in Christ
is headline news.
The rationality police in the newsroom have not, however, seen fit to print the
ratings of a.radical secular evangelist now serving as the White House "science
czar." John Holdren, Obama's director of the White House Office of Science and
Technology Policy and co-chair of the President's Council of Advisors on Science
and Technology, co-authored the innocuously titled "Ecoscience" in the 1970s
w ith population control extremists Paul andAnne Ehrlich.
Earlier this year, Ben Johnson at the online publication FrontPage Magazine
provided quotes shedding light onHoldren's embrace of "compulsory abortion" for
American women "if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger
the society." In "Ecoscience," Holdren and the Ehrlichs also outlined their desire
for "a comprehensive Planetary Regime (that) could control the development,
administration, conservation and distribution of all natural resources."
Johnson outlined the book's ugly eugenics plan and neo-Malthusian vision
of enviro-crats engineering the population. Yet, there was scant mention of
Holdren's stomach-churning proposals during his confirmation hearings in
February. Holdren's defenders might have comforted themselves by claiming that
the quotes were taken out of context. But last week, another online investigative
journalist scanned copious pages from the book to show that his words had been
unedited and accurately transcribed. The disturbing documents can be found at
http://zombietime.com/johnholdren/.
There, you'll find Holdren musing about how to infect the nation's water supply
to make women infertile for the benefit of Mother Earth:
"Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods is a suggestion that seems
to horrify people more than most proposals for involuntary fertility control. ... No
such sterilant exists today, nor does one appear to be under development. To be


"Stomachs are apparently
churning over a book,
Collins wrote describing his
conversion to.Christianity."

acceptable, such a substance would have to meet some rather stiff requirements: It
must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals,
and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must
be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on
members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets or livestock."
Holdren's planetary regime would also breed out undesirables "who contribute
to social deterioration" and "insist that all illegitimate babies be put up for
adoption -- especially those born to minors, who generally are not capable of
caring properly for a child alone."
Single mothers who wanted to keep their children would be "obliged to go
through adoption proceedings and demonstrate her ability to support and care for
it."
If a conservative blogger or Republican political candidate had published such
lunatic claptrap, the Department of Homeland Security would have him on a
watch list. Instead, Holdren is Overlord of Science Policy. "Ecoscience" remains
on his curriculum vitae. Obama is still perceived as the champion of reason.
And the national media, so concerned about the dangers posed by a born-again
Christian scientist, have responded to a secular extremist's wild blueprints for
forced abortions and mass sterilizations with a collective shrug. Scary.

A person inequity


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

sometimes, when I hear about "disparities" and
"inequities," I think of a disparity that applied
, directly to me-- the disparity in basketball
ability between myself and Michael Jordan.
When I was in school, I was so awful in basketball
that the class coach wouldn't even let me try out for
softball, at which 1 was actually pretty good.
I was more than forty years old before I ever got
the ball through the basket. It wasn't during a game.
The basket was in my brother's backyard and I was
just shooting-- unopposed-- from practically right
under the basket. The only pressure on me was that
my little nephew was watching.
After making that one basket, I never took a
basketball in my hands again. I retired at my peak.
Think about it: Michael Jordan made millions of
dollars because of having a talent that was totally
denied to me. Through no fault of my own, I had to
spend years studying economics, in-order to make a
living.
Economics is not nearly as much fun as basketball
and doesn't pay nearly as much money either. We are
talking inequity big time.
Most discussions of "disparities" and "inequities"
are a prelude to coming up with some "solution" that
the government can impose, winning politicians some
votes in the process. How could the disparity between
Michael Jordan and me be solved?
We could change tl�e rules of basketball, in order to
try to equalize the outcomes. Michael Jordan could be
required to make all his two-point shots from beyond
the three-point line, with five players opposing him
and no one on his side., A three-point shot could
require him to stand under the basket on the opposite
side of the court and shoot from there.


Meanwhile, I could make two-point shots from a
spot half the distance from the foul line to the basket,
and of course without any other players on the court
to distract me. Any shots I might make from back at
the foul line would count as three-pointers.
Even under these conditions, you would be better
off betting your money on Michael Jordan. But,
conceivably at least, we might change the rules some
more to make the results come out less lopsided, in
order to create "social justice."
The problem with trying to equalize is that you can
usually only equalize downward. If the government
were to spend some of its stimulus money trying to
raise my basketball ability level to that of Michael
Jordan, it would be an even bigger waste of money
than most of the other things that Washington does.
So the only way to try to equalize that has any
chance at all would be to try to bring Michael Jordan
down to my level, whether by drastic rule changes or
by making him play with one hand tied behind his
back, or whatever.
The problem with this approach, as with many other
attempts at equalization, is that it undermines the very
activity involved. Basketball would be a much less
interesting game if it was played under rules designed
to produce equality of outcomes.
Attendance would fall off to the point where neither
Michael Jordan nor anyone else could make a lihAng
playing the game.
The same principle applies elsewhere. If you are
going to try to equalize the chances of women getting
jobs as firefighters, for example, then you are going
to have to lower the physical requirements of height,
weight and upper body strength.
That means that you are going to have more
firefighters who are not capable of carrying an
unconscious person out of a burning building.
If you are going to have these lower physical


"Most activities
do not exist for the
sake of equality."

Thomas Sowell


requirements be the same for both women and men,
that means that you are not only going to have women
who are not capable of carrying someone out of a
burning building, you are also going to have men who
are likewise incapable of carrying someone to safety.
Most activities do not exist for the sake of equality.
They exist to serve their own purposes-- and those
purposes are undermined, sometimes fatally, when
equality becomes the goal.
Nor would a politician encouraging me to feel
resentful toward Michael Jordan do any good. If I had
such resentments, they would do me more harm than
they would do Michael Jordan. They would make me
feel bad-- and could make me miss seeing some great
basketball.

T hm ~V .I.UI gvi mit.J~Intimal


This letter to the editor is in response
.to the Editorial written by Terry Witt in
last weeks newspaper entitled, "Former
Mayor Thinking About Comeback".
First, I would like to say to the people
who read the article that I had no idea that
Terry was going to print our discussion
after the town hall meeting, 1 was just
wanting his personal opinions, however, I
must say that the article that Terry wrote
was exactly as the conversation took place
and was completely accurate so to Terry (
I say, thank you for writing your article
with so much accuracy.
I have been talking to the citizens
over the past few months about running
for council again, and the responses have
also varied, but, most of the people I have
talked with, have been encouraging and if
there have been any negative responses,
they have usually been "why in the world
would you want to do that again?", so I
feel that I have some explaining to do on
this.
There are several reasons that 1
would like a second chance to serve as a
councilman for Bronson. First, I would
like a chance to prove to the.citizens that
I am trustworthy and regain the trust of
some of my dearest friends, family and
people who have treated me like family
for my entire life. These people were
very disappointed and some were very
hurt because of my actions and I want a
chance to make it up.
Second, while as Mayor of the town,
I started two major projects that are not
complete and I want to help make them
complete and they are the Towns' Park
and the Towns' Sewer System. I feel
with my knowledge that I gained while in
office, I can use that to the good and help
with finishing these projects completely.
Third, during the process of being '
convicted and serving time in a State
Prison, I have lost a lot of my self worth
and because I sold my possessions,
including my businesses, I have just lost
my sense of being needed for anything
at all. I know we all have a purpose and
I really feel like I have so much good
left in me that I should spend whatever
time I have left on this earth trying to
do as much good as I can so I can be
remembered for the good things and not
just for the bad. I guess to sum it up, my
self esteem needs some help. It's not ego
that I'm talking about, it's more about
overcoming the past and being a part of a
team and work together for the betterment


Thomas Sowell, an economist with
a Ph.D., treats readers to two opinions
rather than just the usual one in the July
9 edition of the Levy County Journal.
Dr. Sowell admits to having once been a
Marxist, and has now swung to the other
end of the economic theory spectrum.
His opinion about medical care is based
on his idea that people feel that the cost �
is too high. He ignores the concern that
many people have no health insurance.
No amount of Dr. Sowell's rhetoric about
numbers of Magnetic Resonance Imagers
or miracle drugs available to some people
in the U.S. can obscure the fact that many
children in the U.S. do not get adequate
medical care.
Dr Sowell's second opinion is an
abstruse wail about interpretation of the
Civil Rights Act by the U.S. Supreme
Court, and others. Read it if you have the
patience.
Each week the Levy County Journal
couples one of Dr. Sowell's opinions


of Bronson.
Some people may think there
are other motives than what I have
written above, however, they would be
completely wrong. I want what is the
best for Bronson and l'm for anything
that would make the quality of life better
in Bronson. I have spoken with people
such as the former Mayor, Beatrice
Mongo, former councilwoman, Edith
Brown, current Mayor, Franklin Schuler,
councilmen Aaron Edmondson and
Melody Laflambe, former clerk, Donna
Conquest, current clerk Kelli Brettel and
the rest of the current employees of the
Town, and many others and feel that any
"bad blood" or negative issues that we
may have had with each other, have been
cleared up and we are on good terms with
each other and I don't feel like any one
of these people would have a problem
working with me or me working with
them as a councilman.
If I do decide to run, and it will take
some more soul searching and some more
talking with the citizens first to make that
decision, 1 want everyone to know that
1 don't even want my name close to the
checkbook or anything like that until I
have regained the trust of the people, but
please know that my quote that "1 would
never do anything like that again", is true
and honest. The State Prison System
is somewhere that I don't ever want to
be again for any reason ... even to visit
someone.
If I talk with enough people that think
that this is okay for me to move forward
to seek election, I will do so but please
know that I know how serious this is and I
know how important it is that I stick to all
.the rules and regulations and I would hold
highly the idea that you would give me a
second chance and I would do my very
best to make you proud and be able to say
that "we gave him a second chance and he
did good."
At this time, I would appreciate
your prayers and consideration and your
support in this decision and I pray that
God gives me the wisdom that I need to
make the right 'decision.
Thank you for taking the time to read
this and if you would like to talk to me,
you can call me anytime to discuss any
of what Terry wrote or anything from my
response. My cell phone number is (404)
797-5334.

Jamie Griffin .


with the equally conservative but shriller
complaints of Michelle Malkin, who
probably was never a Marxist. Sowell and
Malkin never deviate from their current
political positions. But in the interest
of journalistic balance, where are the
alternative points-of-view? Even high
school journalism classes teach the value
of balance.
Perhaps the Sowell and Malkin
columns are provided free of charge by
their source, namely Creator Syndicate.
There must be a free, or at most an
inexpensive, source of opinion pieces
from less conservative writers. Are the
opinions published by the Levy County
Journal so delicate as to wither in the face
of an alternative view? If nothing else, a
diversity of opinions might even stimulate
sale of your newspaper.

The Countv Paper, Est. 1923


The Levy County Journal


Budget, from Page 1A
Smith has the option of taking his budget to the Florida Department of Revenue
to have the lost money restored to his budget, but he said he doesn't want to do
that.
He said he understands county commissioners are given a pot of money to divvy
up among the departments they operate and among elected constitutional officers
like him. But he said commissioners are proposing cuts he fears could endanger
public safety.
"When it comes to dividing the pot of money, it's my opinion you can't sacrifice
public safety," he said.
Commissioners have been trying to reduce spending to reduce the drain on their
reserve funds. The commission's $24 million operating budget has a reserve of
about $650,000 or 2 V2 percent.
The board's full budget of $60 million includes grants, gasoline taxes, sales
taxes, property taxes and other revenue sources.
But the slim reserve fund could create problems for the county if a major disaster
should strike, such as a hurricane. That's why commissioners continue to hack away
at even the smallest budgets on Tuesday.
Bell noted that the sheriff's original request would have left about $3 million in
property tax dollars to fund the remaining 18 departments in the county.
"It's difficult to balance and I'm not happy where I'm at," Bell said. "I'd like to
be 5 percent lower."
But some departments, such as elections and tax collections, are proposing
budget increases. Tax Collector Linda Fugate said she has cut her budget as much
as she can, but there are built in expenses she can't avoid. Supervisor of Elections
Connie Asbell made a similar argument, noting the cost of materials, postage and
the overtime she must pay employees to work nights and sometimes weekends in
preparation for elections can't be avoided.
But Bell and Commissioner Marsha Drew grilled constitutional officers for hours
Tuesday trying to find places in the budgets where they could cut expenses.
"We have a job to do too, and we have to do the best we can for the taxpayers and
there are fewer of them," Drew said.

Board, from Page 1A
tax revenue for the month of June.
Clemons said according to a conversation with Levy County Tax Collector
Linda Fugate in mid-June, the school board was told to not expect much in tax
revenue because property sales had been down.
Between $200,000 and $300,000 was expected, but at the end of June $1
million came in from the tax collector's office, Clemons said.
Following the determination that step increases would remain for the '09-
'10 school year, the negotiators agreed to move on to the five proposals up for
discussion.
Proposal 1 calls for the revision of the Reading Endorsement Supplement,
which is currently a reccurring supplement, "to be a one-time $1,000 bonus upon
earning the endorsement."
Proposal 2 would revise the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
Endorsement Supplement, also a reccurring supplement, to be a one-time $250
bonis.
Clemons said last year the Reading supplement cost the district $86,306 and
the ESOL supplement cost $30,765, a total of $117,071. Making them one-time
supplements instead of paying the bonus every year could save the school board
about $100,000 a year, Clemons said.
Bowen said these proposals do fall under the re-opener provision of the
contract.
"We might question the wisdom of them, but we do know they're open to
negotiations pursuant to Article 19," he said.
Article 19 in the Instructional and Educational Staff Professional Contract
between the School Board of Levy County and the Levy County Education
Association states, "Both parties agree to reopen negotiations at the request of
either party," and this contract remains in effect until June 30, 2010.
Proposal 3 states: "Effective July 1, 2010, salary steps will be a negotiated
item. They will no longer be automatically rolled up."
"That's just something we're not going to agree to," Bowen said.
"Proposal 3 is unacceptable. We simply do not agree with it," he said. An
automatic step increase is the one thing that will be guaranteed from one year to
the next.
Copeland said step increases have been automatic and was one driving force
that put the district in the state of financial urgency. Proposal 3 would make it so
that the step increases would be negotiated in value and whether or not the step
occurs.
Proposal 4 states that rehired retirees will not be given credit for prior
experience for which the person is receiving retirement benefit. In other words,
returning teachers who are.drawing a retirement check will return at beginning
salary instead of using their prior experience to receive pay on the higher-end of
the pay scale.
It is possible the district will pay for an employee's experience a number of
times, Copeland said: firstly, when an employee ascends on the salary schedule;
secondly, when the district pays 100 percent of contribution for the employee's
state retirement; again when the employee begins to draw that retirement; and
possibly again if a retiree is rehired.
"Our intention is to not only talk about it here but to adopt a board policy
that we will not pay for experience for which a retiree is drawing retirement,"
Copeland said.
Proposal 5 is based on new language in Florida Senate Bill 1676 that states
"employees may voluntarily wave teaching experience for salary purposes."
According to the bill, school districts are no longer required to recognize out-
of-state teaching experience in employment contracts. The proposal allows in-
state teacher applicants to waive the teaching experience requirement. This may
be for bargaining purposes.
This proposal is completely contrary to Chapter 447, the collective bargaining
disagreement, Bowen said in an interview after the meeting. It allows the board to
go directly to an individual to negotiate salary; however in the state of Florida, if
a bargaining unit, or union, represents a group, employers must negotiate with the
unit instead of individuals.
If this proposal is passed, it will probably result in serious legal challenges, and
not just in Levy County, Bowen said.
Bowen agreed, saying in an interview after the negotiations that it may present
catastrophic legal implementations throughout the state unless there is iron-clad
wording that allows it to be implemented with fairness.
Levy County Education Association President Cindy Roach said Proposals
4 and 5 cannot be put into school board policy just because the state law was
changed.
"State law doesn't mean you can put it in policy and not negotiate it," she said.
"If it's going to be there, it has to be negotiated here at the table."
Florida law 447 says the state is a collective bargaining state, meaning the
union has a right to negotiate on such things as wages, benefits and working


conditions, she said.
"I'm not sure we want to go to a place where people are not being paid for their
experience," Bowen said.
Both sides agreed no decisions could be made until more financial information
is known, which will not happen until the budget is set.
"It makes very little sense to come back to the table before we know where
we're going to be financially," Copeland said.
They decided to meet again in August after the school board's preliminary
budget hearing that is tentatively scheduled for July 28.

Hope springs eternal for Chiefland football


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

There is almost always optimism in
the voice of a high school football coach
in mid July. Endless opportunities lay
in the weeks and nionths ahead, and if
the football bounces the right way, those
opportunities and the dreams that come
with them can be realized.
But there was a little more excitement
than usual in the voice ofAjay Uliner as
he % isited the Chiefland Rotary Club July
15. Encouraged by an outstanding spring
game and an upbeat summer lifting
program, the third year head coach of
the Chiefland Indians could barely hold
back.
"I am real excited about the upcoming
season," he said. "This spring was a good
barometer of what we needed to work
on, where we needed to improve and
where our strengths are. We wanted to
establish a tempo and work ethic that we
could build on. I told the kids, whatever
the outcome of the spring game, our goal
was to play well, be physical and don't
give up."
They didn't, and the 12-0 win over
Fort White, on a rainy night at Wayne
Pridgeon Stadium, set the tone for what
has been an impressive summer.
The numbers are staggering: three
players bench-pressing more than 350
pounds. Another 13 benching more than
300.
"That just goes to show the amount of
effort that is being put into it," he said.
"The program we are running is working
and the kids are buying into it. It takes
a little time to get things the way they
need to be. I feel like we are right in line
with where we want to be right now."
Next on the calendar is a two-day
camp, which will see players live on
the CHS campus for an extended time
- competing, learning and bonding as a
high school football team.
"We will have the kids stay at the
school starting Aug. 10, which is the first
legal day of practice," he said. "We will
have them stay overnight, and we will
feed them and try to have some activities
for them to do. We will have a couple of
practices per day, lift weights and have
competitions to get ourselves ready for
the season."


Ulmer said the Levy County
Emergency Management Office will
provide cots for the players to sleep
on in the weight room. He added that
excitement is building among the team
to have a successful two days.
"This will be our third season doing
it, and the kids are already asking,
'When is camp? When is camp?'" he
said. "As hard and as tough a thing as it
is, as hard as we work them physically
and mentally, they look forward to it.
That is a good team-building sign for
us."
Ulmer said that anyone in the local .
community who wants to help out with
the camp can do so by sponsoring one
of the team meals. That will free up the
Chiefland Quarterback Club to assist
with more vital areas of concern.
"We typically have pregame meals
during the season as well as our camp
meals," he said. "We .try to have
those sponsored so that they do not
come directly out of the Quarterback
Club. The Quarterback Club does
a phenomenal job of raising money
supporting those types of events for
us. Basically any need that I have they
take care of it for me. But it also takes
the community to help out with those
sorts of things."

FHSAA decides


against reducing


sports schedules

GAINESVILLE - The Florida High School Athletic
Association Board of Directors voted unanimously July
15 to rescind the amendments to Policy 6, "Sports Season
Guidelines."
The amendments, which were originally passed
in April, would have reduced interscholastic varsity
contests by 20 percent and sub-varsity contests by 40
percent in most sports in an effort both to alleviate the
financial crisis facing school districts and provide a
uniform solution across the state.
The FHSAA was made aware of a possible Title IX
violation and litigation in June, and worked diligently
to be in compliance with Title IX, a spokesman for the
organization said. Since no compromise could be reached,
a recommendation was made to hold a Board meeting to
consider rescinding the amendments to Policy 6.
"I believe what we did in April was the best thing for
the membership then, and given the situation, what we
did today was in its best interest now," said Board of
Directors President Greg Zornes.
"I know there have been a lot of blogs and news articles
about the FHSAA and this particular issue regarding
gender equity. In actuality, the FHSAA is recognized by
its peer members from other states as leading the nation
in terms of providing equal and equitable opportunities
for both boys and girls in high school," said FHSAA
Executive Director Roger Dearing. "We were yesterday,
are today, and will be tomorrow, advocates for both
boys and girls equally in creating life experiences that
will make them healthier, happier and more competitive,
while at the same time creating memorable experiences
they will have for a lifetime." (Courtesy, FHSAA)


we need to keep around," he said.
"My philosophy about out-of-district
games is that youi set your goals high
and play teams that you have to play
well to beat."
It all starts with the Kickoff Classic,
set for Aug. 28 against Live Oak
Suwannee County, an early test for the
upstart Indians.
"I want to get our oil checked right
off the bat this year," he said.
If all goes well, Ulmer added, the,
team will reach its goal and make the
playoffs.
"Our goal is to get in the playoffs,"
he said. "Once you get there, you
never know, if you get some things
rolling you can make a run. Obviously
we have the ultimate goal of winning
a state title, but you have to get in the
playoffs to do that."

Movie Choices for Kids


HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-
BLOOD PRINCE
(Running time: 153 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint,
Emma Watson, Michael Gambon, Jim
Broadbent

This is the first Harry Potter film I
have seen without reading the book first.
I'm sure that I missed understanding
everything that was going on because I
haven't read the book.
Even though I wasn't prepared
in advance, the movie drew me in
completely, right from the start. Harry
Potter and the Half-Blood Prince begins
with the return to Hogwarts School. But
after last year, Hogwarts is a different
place. There is more security to keep
Death Eaters out. Students and faculty
are on edge. This is a darker Harry
Potter story and movie.
The movie delves into Voldemort's
past, when he was just the orphan,
Tom Riddle, and not the evil lord. This
fleshes out the story. Horace Slughorn
(Broadbent), Voldemort's early teacher,
returns to Hogwarts to teach and helps


Potter movie has Harry and his friends
as full-fledged teens with romantic
entanglements, misunderstandings,
jealousies, crushes and even a real love
potion. After all, this is Harry Potter!
The story captures the innocence of
first love. The movie never goes beyond
"making out" and all the scenes between
the teens are tasteful and often funny.
We are treated to a Quidditch game
again, too. While all this is happening,
evil forces are gathering quietly within
Hogwarts. Draco Malfoy has gone to
the dark side as has a professor who
shall remain nameless here. Harry is
ever-watchful around the castle, but the
darkness wins this round and a major
character dies.
The level of excellence of the Harry
Potter series continues with Harry
Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
While there are dark elements, there
is less violence and direct conflict than
in past installments. Still, this is a dark
movie and very long -- probably not
appropriate for children under 10. Some
of the images will make for perfect
nightmares. There is no sex and no bad
language. Harry Potter and the Half-


Harry. Dumbledore begins preparing .Blood Prince is another "don't-miss"
Harry to defeat the Dark Lord. movie, destined to end up on the top 10

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, July 16, at the Levy County Quilt B -
Museum. It was a busy day for everyone. Joyce brought in fabric and we looked '
up and planned a new project. Alline has finished her white-on-white quilt. The
work is something to see. Doris is working on a new pattern, and we enjoyed
having Beth Davis from Cedar Key to come by and visit.
There is a new Heart of The Scenic Trail magazine that is being put out about
Florida, and the Quilt Museum will be in it in August. The one on Alachua is
great, and we don't know how much of Florida we know nothing about. We have
copies here at the Museum.
Nick Turner washout with six boys on Tuesday and did we get a lot done from
mowing to shucking corn, trimming figs to can, to cutting up onions. What a
great time we have teaching whatever comes along.
Thanks, Lancaster.
Dinner today was great chicken all kinds, fried
okra, creamed corn, pasta salad, cheese and macaroni,
vegetable loaf, squash, chocolate pie, fruit cake and
so much more. E

Mud races attract record crowds at Speedway

Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor
The crowds came out to the Bronson Motor Speedway in full force
Friday night.
It was the second week of the nighttime mud races, and with almost
double the attendance from last week, it was apparent word had gotten
around during the week.
The evening started with about 25 trucks competing in the $20 and - . ...-.
$10 mud races, followed by the children's race and the bounty hole. . '
Arthur Conquest of Bronson has been a regular racer at the Bronson
Motor Speedway and has been mudbogging for about 20 years. - . j
But Friday night he could be seen doing more than just racing .. . . . -
himself. It was the first night he, his wife, Lori, and his daughter, Sarah, . ,.
all participated in the mud racing.
Ten-year-old Sarah, it seems, has taken after her father. The winner
of last week's kids' mud races, Sarah once again took the trophy this
week. ,
Sarah went through the mud in her "Girl Zuki" Suzuki Samarai at
5.555 seconds for her second run. The custom-painted purple and pink
racer was a gift to Sarah from her father on his own birthday, June 7. Arthur Conquest drives his truck past the winning flag in the mud hole
Conquest said he taught Sarah how to race in their driveway. Bronson Motor Speedway Friday night.
He taught her by pressing down on the brake until the rpm was ready,
Sarah said of learning how to race in their driveway.
In the kids' races at the Speedway, a parent is required to ride with the
child, but he or she cannot touch anything during the rtm, but that's not
the case for the adult races.
Lori entered into the mud race with her husband in the passenger
seat. During her ride, Conquest could be seen reaching over and pressing
her right leg to mash the accelerator down farther.
"I apparently don't drive fast enough for him," Lori said after the
race.
Conquest's need for speed didn't stop at the mud races. As one of the Sarah Conquest, 10, drives her "Girl A dune buggy is put to the test on ti

side, it is a rare day any truck makes it through without getting stuck. For
that reason, the competition is based on whoever makes it the farthest
in the mud.
Conquest hauled through the bog, beating the current winner by mere
feet.
Tony Parker said he was very pleased with the record crowd out to
see the mud races and the mudbog. There were even racers who came iPA
.down from Jacksonville and plan on coming back every week, he said.
And when it comes to participants, Parker said snowmobiles, golf
carts, airboats, and all are welcome.'
"We got something for everybody," he said. "We will fit them in
