Time for a Blitch rallyP


Republican group tires of


waiting for governor's call


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Members of the Levy County
Republican Executive Committee
are ready for action, and since their
requests have "fallen on deaf ears" at the
governor's office, they've
decided to take matters
into their own hands.
It's been nine months
since the Levy County
Commission District 1 .
seat has been left vacant
due to the indictment
of Commissioner Tony j
Parker, said Michelle
Finnen, chairperson of the
Levy County Republican Abrahai
Executive Committee. The governor's
office has yet to make an appointment,
and there are some rumors circulating
that they are waiting for' a black
applicant, she said.
But Finnen wants to know why
Levy County should wait when, in
the November election, Republican
candidate Abraham Blitch won 49
percent of the vote.
That's why during the Committee's
monthly meeting at BubbaQue's
Monday night, there was a unanimous
vote to host a rally in support of Blitch.
The rally will be held August 8 at 9 a.m.
at the Levy County Courthouse steps in
Bronson.
The Committee is asking for 1,000
signatures to take to Gov. Crist asking
for the appointment of Blitch. -
In actuality, in order to put a
constitutional amendment on the ballot,
8 percent of the general voter population
in the last presidential election must sign
a petition, she said. In Levy County,
41.35 percent of the county's 24,098
voters participated in the election. With
that number, the Committee would need
797 signatures.
However, Finnen said she wanted to
take it a step further and use the current
number of registered voters, which as
of Monday is 26,028. Therefore, 861


signatures would be required.
The Committee decided to ask for a
nice, round number of 1,000 signatures
in order to make a real statement to Gov.
Crist that action needs to be taken now,
she said.
"I wanted to have some kind of
benchmark and to have our
petition mean something,"
she said.
Blitch is someone
who's spent the time,
effort and money in this
' county, she said. He
qualified to run in the
election, he raised and
used his own money
during the campaign, and
n Blitch he was voted on by almost
half of the voters.
"This should've been a no-brainer
for the governor," she said.
The vacancy needs to be filled as soon
as possible in order to prevent deadlock
votes with a fifth commissioner and also
because District 1 has no representation
right now, she said.
If the people in District I have a
problem, they have no one to go to
right now, she said. Although anoihcr
commissioner would most likely listen
to the concerns of the people in District
1, "ultimately, I'm not one of their
constituents," she said.
Blitch said it is a blessing that he
continues to have support in Levy
County.
"No one ever expected that after
almost nine months a decision would
still not be' made," he said in an e-mail
to the Journal. "People. are tired of
hearing so many times from various
sources in Tallahassee that a decision
would be made soon or in 30 days or in
the next two weeks and are reasonably
disappointed."
As a 20-year resident and taxpayer
of District 1, Blitch said he understands
that people, not politics, need to be
involved in the decision-making
process, and decisions need to be made
keeping future generations in mind.

The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection closed down the city of Clliefland's
yard trash burn site last week after an inspection
revealed the city had no permit to accept limbs
and debris from throughout the city.
Chiefland operates a yard trash burn site at
the rear of the industrial park in the southeast
portion of the city. DEP found that the city had
no permit for citywide collection and burning of
limbs and leaves at the site.
For the time being, Waste Pro, the city's
garbage hauler, will continue to pickup up limbs
and bagged leaves at curbside from city residents.
The materials will be delivered to a disposal site
the company pays to use. The company had
been delivering the yard trash from Chiefland to
the city burn site and was paying the city $6,000
annually for that privilege.
The city will no longer receive that revenue
if Waste Pro has to pay to deposit the city's yard
trash at a private facility.

Knife-wielding man


threatens swimmers,


Levy deputy sheriff


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A man who used a knife to chase
swimmers out of a boat ramp area near
Inglis was arrested July 23 on felony
charges of assaulting the swimmers,
battering sheriff's deputies who took
him into custody, and threatening to
retaliate against the officer who was
first on the scene.
The sheriff's office said Jerome C.
Nasworthy, 42, Tampa was in a boat at
a boat ramp off County Road 40 west
when he became angered at swimmers
around his boat. One, victim said he
pulled a knife and threatened to cut
someone up.
When Deputy Wilburn Wells
arrived he found Nasworthy standing
next to a boat holding a boat paddle
over his head in an aggressive manner.
Wells handcuffed Nasworthy and took
possession of the knife in his right
front pants pocket. He was bleeding
from the mouth and nose. His left eye
was red.
An unidentified man had punched
Nasworthy in the face at least twice
when Nasworthy came after him,
according to the sheriff's office. Two
male swimmers ran from him when
they were threatened with the ki'jfe.


A woman told Wells that Nasworthy
had grabbed her wrist and twisted it
until it broke.
Nasworthy was treated at Seven
Rivers Hospital north of Crystal River.
Staff at the hospital said Nasworthy
"went after a doctor" while being
treated.
When Nasworthy was escorted out
of the hospital to the, patrol car he
became combative and refused to get
in the vehicle.
Wells said deputies laid Nasworthy
on the ground to bring him under
control, but he kept kicking and
spitting at them. Nasworthy kicked
Wells in the groin and knee. He kicked
Deputy Jay Crooms in the leg.
After being transported to the Levy
County Jail, Nasworthy told Wells
it was not over between them. He
promised to assault Wells. When he
was told to stop making threats, he
vowed to make good on his promise
when he found Wells.
Nasworthy was arrested on three
counts of aggravated assault with
a deadly weapon. two counts of
battering law enforcement officers,
felony battery, resisting arrest with
violence and corruption by threat on a
public servant. The eight charges are
felonies.

Chiefland Rotary learns about stroke prevention


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Members of the Chiefland Rotary
Club learned about how easy it is to
prevent a life-threatening stroke.
Brandy Baxter with Life Line
Screening spoke to the club during
their weekly meeting July 22 about
how Doppler ultrasound testing can
screen for the warning signs that detect
whether a stroke may be imminent.
Life Line Screening is the leading
provider of community-based
preventive health screenings in the
U.S. The company offers five tests for
a fraction of what it would cost in the
hospital, she said.
Life Line Screening travels
to cities all over the country and
performs the tests on those who pre-
register. Baxter explained all five tests
and the advantages to having them
performed.
The stroke/carotid artery screening
evaluates for the buildup of fatty
plaque in the carotidarteries, which is
the leading cause of stroke.
The painless heart rhythm screening
detects an irregular heartbeat, which
increases the risk of stroke five times.
The abdominal aortic aneurysm
test uses ultrasound to screen for
the presence of an aneurysm in the


abdominal aorta, which could lead to
a rupture.
The fourth test screens for plaque
buildup in the lower extremities.
Called peripheral arterial disease, a
person is four to five times more likely
to die from heart disease if he or she
has this buildup.
The fifth and final test is an
osteoporosis. Baxter said although
women are more likely to have
osteoporosis than men, men shouldn't
rule this disease out..
Each test costs $49 and is completed
in about 10 minutes, she said. All five
tests are offered in a package deal for
$149, and take -about an hour-and-a-
half to complete.
"We have not raised prices in nine
years," she said.
Life Line Screening will be at the
Chiefland Senior Center Wednesday,
August 26. Pre-registration is required
to receive the tests.
Dr. Robert Balbis, a family practice
doctor and member of the Chiefland
Rotary, said people don't realize what
a great company Life Line Screening
is and how much can be saved by
going to the company instead of to a
hospital.
"It is tremendous savings,
tremendous tests and I would highly
recommend it," he said.

Natural gas pipeline in the works for Levy, Gilchrist

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer I W F , ,...imm R, ..- ....- - .


Work is expected to begin around the
first of January next year on construction
of a 36-inch natural gas pipeline through
Gilchrist and Levy Counties, according
to Florida Gas Transmission Company.
The Phase VIII pipeline will generally
run parallel to an existing 30-inch
pipeline in the two counties and is part
of a. $2.5 billion expansion project that
will add 483.2 miles of new pipeline to
FGT's 5,000 mile underground pipeline
system.
The company says 365.8 miles of the
new pipeline will parallel existing main
pipelines and 117. 4 miles will be built
in new easements. Public information
meetings were held in this area to give
the public a chance to comment. The
company will add 213,600 horsepower
of additional compression to the pipeline
to transport the natural gas.
FGT is planning to build 12.8
miles of 36-inch in diameter pipeline
in Suwannee and Gilchrist Counties
and 46.1 miles of .36-inch in diameter
pipeline in Levy and Citrus Counties,
ending at the Lecanto compressor


Gas company crews work on Florida Gas Transmission Company's pipeline along U.S. 19 south of
Chiefland. Similar work will be done next year on a new pipeline in Levy and Gilchrist counties.


station in Citrus.
Increased horsepower will be added
at an existing compressor station in
Gilchrist County and at an existing
compressor station in Citrus County.
A breakdown of where the new
pipeline will be constructed is available
on FGT's Internet site - www.
panhandleenergy.com/fgt/phaseviii
- under "frequently asked questions"
or FAQ. The pipeline will extend from


Mobile County, Alabama to Highlands
County Florida, ending at the Florida
Power & Light Martin Power Plant. It
will skirt Chiefland and run down U.S.
19.
The natural gas primarily will come
from gas supplies in the Gulf Coast
area, new shale developments in Texas,
Louisiana and Arkansas and liquefied
national gas terminals.
Residents may have noticed gas


company crews working on FGT's
pipeline along U.S. 19 south of
Chiefland. The crews are not part of the
pipeline construction crew. The crews
are running a "smart pig" electronic
device through the existing pipeline in
Gilchrist and Levy Counties to check
for potential flaws in the welds, the
thickness of the pipe walls or "other
anomalies." Federal regulations require
the maintenance.


Cedar Key commissioners give 'bad dog' new hearing


By Tara Massagee
Correspondent


The Cedar Key City Commission voted July 21 to
hold an additional hearing at an upcoming commission
meeting in August on the case of a potentially
dangerous dog in Cedar Key.
City attorney David Coffey recommended that
the commission reopen the case on behalf of new
evidence presented and a final decision granted based
upon the evidence.
George Sresovich is the owner of the accused
dog, Gal. Gal is a lab mix that allegedly killed a cat,
threatened a woman, and fought with another dog.
Sresovich admits that Gal got in a fight with a dog,
adding that he paid that veterinarian bills from that.
But, he said there is no evidence of his dog killing a
cat.
He said after the fight with the dog he kept Gal
contained without being told to do so. He said the only
problem he had was the sign that he' was supposed
to post on his fence. He said the sign had a vicious
looking dog on it, baring its teeth. He said he just
could not do that and brought it to the commissioners
for re-evaluation.
He said the commissioners unanimously agreed
that the sign was too much and that as long as he kept
Gal contained there would be no problem.
Sresovich said he does not understand why
everything is being brought up again, unless they feel


that they ruled wrong.
"I am fine with letting it be," Sresovich said.
Coffey said there were insufficient facts at the
previous hearing to support there was a dangerous
dog.
"In order to assure due process is heard, we need to
reopen the hearing," Coffee said.
Coffey said later that during the next hearing, the
accusation may be reversed and Gal may not be a
dangerous dog or a lesser name may be granted, such
as a nuisance dog.
He said Florida statutes are very specific on what
warrants a dangerous dog. A few of the specifications
include that there must have been two events where
death or serious injury occurred and the police have
to thoroughly investigate.
Coffey said there was the one cat that was apparently
killed by Gal, but there still has to be another event.
He said the dog that was attacked does not count as a
second offense because the injuries were not serious
enough, and the event was not reported in a timely
manner.
Joan Horn was present at the commission meeting
and said that there should not be an additional hearing
because the data the\ presented at the first hearing
was given honestly.
"I don't think you reverse in midstream when
evidence has been given that it is a dangerous dog,"
she said.
Commissioner Heath Davis said "We need to quit


focusing on the question and focus on the answer.
It's much more simpler than what we are making it.
We've got to make this right."
In other news, Mayor Sue Colson gave a special
award to veteran Ivan Chubb at the beginning of the
meeting. He was given the "Golden Clam Award" and
made an honorary citizen of Cedar Key in recognition
of everything he does for the town.
"Cedar Key is a wonderful town," Chubb said.
Also, golf carts were discussed at the meeting.
They will now be allowed to operate after sunset
throughout the town and the amount of insurance
required for each cart has changed. Each golf cart is
required to have $10,000 in accident insurance and
$10,000 in personal bodily injury insurance.
This will "parallel what is required for all
automobiles," City Attorney David Coffey said.
Lastly, the police chief was approved to purchase
a new vehicle for use in the police department. The
vehicle will be a used 2006 Dodge truck equipped
with a mega cab.
Chief Virgil Sandlin said the vehicle will be used
to put out barricades and transport prisoners.
The cost of the truck will be about $23,000. The
city agreed to use the marina fund to help purchase
part of the vehicle until the police department receives
its stimulus package in October.
Sandlin said that once the package comes in, the
city will receive $15,000 back, but not the other
$8,000.


Williston city employee tries to save job in tough economic year


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Williston city council members are
zipping through the budget process
this year at a fairly rapid rate, having
tentatively adopted the same millage rate
as last year, which gave city taxpayers a
7.32 percent reduction in the tax rate.
But council members also had to deal
with a personnel issue last week during
a budget workshop when city employee
Mark Schneider, who is losing his job
due to the elimination of the solid waste

department, came to the council asking
to keep his job.
Schneider said he had been moved
over to the city's electric department,
after solid waste was closed down. He
chose the electric department because
he thought he could learn something.
But now he said he is losing his job.
"I'm trying to 'save my job in this
economy. There's not much out there,"
he said.
Finance Director Mark Schiefer
said Schneider had operated the
knuckleboom truck collecting yard


debris along the road. When the solid
waste department was eliminated, there
was no more need for that position.
, The move to the electric department
was only temporary until the council
decided whether it wanted to keep
the three positions that had been in
solid waste, according to Schiefer.
The council decided to keep the most
experienced of the three employees
and put him in parks and recreation.
The other two employees lost their
jobs.
Schneider was not successful in


convincing commissioners to retain
him as a city employee, but the union
negotiated several concessions. He and
the other employee will work for the
city and continue being paid by the city
through Sept. 30.
If they get a job interview and
have to be absent from the job, they
will be paid during that absence. The
city will give both employees good
recommendations to future employers
and will not oppose the request for
unemployment compensation, should
that occur.
Clarification


In the July 23 issue, the article entitled "Board
considers tax hike" stated that the School Board of
Levy County voted to consider imposing a 0.25 percent
village increase for the county. In fact, the board was
voting on whether to decrease the millage to 7.5 or to
have it remain at 7.75.

Meet



Goose


By Rick Burnham
Editor

S someone 1 know spoke briefly to me about
a memory aide the other day. Memorex,
or Memorandum, or Memorial. Can't
really remember what it was called. But
I am going to speak to him about it soon, because
my memory is definitely beginning to fade.
Look no further than the new kitten I have for
proof. The new kitten I have less than a year after
I got rid of my last kitten.
Goose is his name, and he is the meanest kitten
in the world.
Oh, he looks cute. Orange and fluffy and
bouncy and kitteny. But then you pick him up, and
he leans his head back, opens his mouth, and bites
down on your hand with tiny teeth that are razor
sharp.
"Don't bite," you say, and then you realize
he's a cat and doesn't understand English. So you
break it down like you would for an immigrant.
"No bite." And he responds by biting you again,
and you wonder aloud what in the world you
needed with another kitten.
I get home from work and he greets me with
raw aggression. I have no sooner closed the door
when he comes bounding in - coffee table to
couch to chair to other chair to table, where he
begins swatting the air with tiny paws bearing
claws full of needles. If I come home at night, I
can hear him making those leaps in the dark, and I
can imagine paws and claws swinging in the wind.
Later on, when the house is still and a more
stealth method is called for, he'll move slowly
across the carpet, careful not to give his diabolical
plan away. By the time I hear and feel him hit the
bed, it's too late. Needles puncture my back and I
scream for vengeance, only to hear him scamper
from the room like a gazelle.
The meanest kitten in the world.
The other morning I got up and walked into the
bathroom and saw that a brand new roll of toilet
paper had been unwound and lay damaged on the
floor in a pathetic heap. I spent 45 minutes getting
that paper back on the roll, and when I finished it
was big as a tractor tire. Meanwhile, there's Goose
over there in his litterbox, rubbing it in like only
he could.
That cat will drive you crazy.
I am sitting at the kitchen table the other day
and you-know-who decides he wants to jump up in
my lap. He misjudges his leap, loses his balance,
and, with claws extended, slides down my leg,
leaving a half dozen trails of blood from whence
he came. Lightning bolts of pain make time stand
still.
"Get out of here," 1 yell like a madman, and he
comes at me sideways, like he's ready to fight. 1
laugh because he's less than a foot tall, and turn
my attention back to what I was doing, reading
something or other. Moments later I feel the sting
of tiny, razor-sharp teeth sinking into my big toe.
Later though I forget about our angry exchange
and allow him to lounge on my chest as I lay on
the couch watching television., He's there purring
like there is no tomorrow, with eyes big as saucers.
Cute, I think to myself. I glance at him and back at
the TV, then again at him and once more at the TV.
And then I realize, just in the nick of time, that he
is watching my eyes, and back out of the way of a
paw that could have rendered me sightless, which
is not good for a newspaper editor.
Mean mean mean.
So I put him in the spare bathroom as a
temporary punishment, and he proceeds to meow
once every four seconds for more than two hours.
I have my fingers crossed that Goose will grow
out of his youthful exuberance, hopefully before 1
lose my ever-loving mind. If not, you'll be seeing
his name in the Classified Ads section of the Levy
County Journal.
If I don't forget to put him in there.

Stimulus offers little hope future


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act is a bureaucrat's dream.
The ARRA was sold to the American
people as President Barack Obama's
economic stimulus package during the ongoing
recession. It was supposed to end or weaken the
recession and create jobs.
It hasn't done anything of the sort.
Obama and his aides have created a program
so incredibly complicated that one would need a
master's degree in muddled thinking to make sense
of it.
It's really nothing more than a $700 billion
government giveaway that offers people false hope
when they are most vulnerable. The economy will
recover on its own as time goes on, stimulus money
or not.
The only two ARRA projects in Levy County
that I know about thus far are the repaving of several
miles of County Road 40 in the Inglis area and the
planned construction of a pedestrian/bike trail from
U.S. 19 to Manatee Springs State Park.
Both projects are worthwhile, especially the
pedestrian/bike trail, but someone will have to
explain to me'how these projects will create new jobs
in Levy County or stimulate the national economy. A
contractor will be awarded the paving job for CR 40.
A different contractor will build the trail, and neither
company has to be local.
I went to the official website for the ARRA
- Recovery.Gov - and found it depressingly
governmental. At the site, you can click on a map
that will show projects in progress around the nation.
There aren't that many projects, but some do exist.
In Tampa, $9 million is being spent repairing
asphalt adjacent to a concrete apron. It doesn't
identify the site. A second ARRA project is $626,000
to sandblast, paint and repair a sector gate in Moore
Haven. Once again, there were few details.
The federal government has formed a recovery
review board consisting of a chairman and 12
inspectors general to assure accountability and
supposedly transparency. I commend the effort for
transparency and accountability. They will keep track
of where the money is spent.
I would encourage local government officials to
try to tap into this money, if they can part the veil
and see through the tangled web of instructions
on how to apply for the government funding. The
money will be given away to someone. It might as
well be us.
, The biggest disappointment from my perspective
is how wasteful it is to pour money into seemingly
random projects all over the nation when existing
agencies in the federal and state government could
have spent the money on known infrastructure needs
like failing bridges and crumbling federal highways.
Obama has created what amounts to a very large
public relations effort at taxpayer expense. The
bulk of the ARRA money will be released next year
during congressional elections, I suspect.


If the ARRA money had indeed been intended
as an economic stimulus, most of the money would
have been released this spring and summer when the,
economy was weakest. Instead, it has been dribbling
out of Washington like a leaky faucet.
I suspect the money will probably be released
in dribs and drabs as local governments become
educated about how to apply for funding. The
computer company, Dell, is sponsoring the
Economic Stimulus Learning Center website to
educate government folks about how to tap into the
money. I suggest local government officials take a
look at that site as well as Recovery.Gov. They can
use the sites to determine if they are eligible for
ARRA projects. The money is being thrown around
like pieces of candy. We might as well get some of it,
assuming it can be obtained.
One of the many tragedies associated with the
program is that the billions spent will become a
debt for the country. Itfs not a free program. When
the government's printing presses roll and dollar
bills appear, it's not play money. The American
people will be paying interest on the ARRA debt for
generations to come, just as they will pay interest on
the hundreds of billions of dollars being spent on the
wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The ARRA looks good on paper. One of the
websites created for the- program explains how
billions in grants will be given away as tax incentives
for renewable energy and energy efficient projects,
loans for renewable energy projects and funding to
make energy efficient upgrades to federal buildings.
There will be $17 billion for public transit and high-
speed rail, supposedly to reduce U.S. dependence on
foreign oil.
Could we also reduce our dependence on foreign
oil by drilling domestically for oil? If the'stimulus
package is to give away tax dollars,, why not give
away some of this money to encourage exploratory
oil drilling on American soil or in the Gulf of Mexico
or on the continental shelf of the eastern seaboard?
Why not repair some of the country's failing
bridges or highways with the money? Why not give
Levy County the money to build a new courthouse
annex and a health department building? Why not
give Levy County money to resurface 75 miles of its
paved roads?
Why not send every American from the age of 18
and older a check for $5,000 and tell them to spend
it on something that will make the economy whole
again? Why not give businesses and industry large
tax breaks to create new jobs and invest in the private
sector?
The ARRA may be one of the biggest boondoggles
in American history. If it had been done honestly and
correctly, the economic stimulus package would have
actually targeted the economy rather than the self
interests of Obama and the Democrats in Congress.
As the money is released by the billions next
year,,a congressional election year, my guess is you
will hear Obama give speeches on the benefits of his
economic stimulus program and how great it was, and
how it revived a sagging economy.
It will be political hot air and nothing more.

Obamacare for illegal aliens

By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


B ig Nanny Democrats want to ration health care for everyone in
America -- except those who break our immigration laws. Last week,
the House Ways and Means Committee defeated an amendment that
would have prevented illegal aliens from using the so-called "public
health insurance option." Every Democrat on the panel voted against the
measure.
Nevada GOP Rep. Dean Heller's measure would have enforced income,
eligibility and immigration verification screening on all Obamacare patients.
Unlike most everything else stuffed into the House Democrats' plan, the
citizenship vetting process would not have required building a new bureaucracy.
Heller proposed using existing state and federal databases created years ago to
root out entitlement fraud.
If the congressional majority are truly committed to President Obama's quest
to wring cost savings from the system, why won't they adopt the same anti-fraud
checks imposed on other government health and welfare beneficiaries? Maybe
an intrepid reporter could ask the president at his next Obamacare show to
explain.
The Democratic leadership denies that an estimated 12 million to 20 million
illegal immigrants will receive taxpayer-subsidized health insurance coverage.
Senate Finapc.e Cpotmrittee Chair Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., calls the
proposition'rtoo politically explosive."
But Obama lit the fuse in February when he signed the massive expansion
of the State Children's Health Insurance Program. That law loosened eligibility
requirements for legal immigrants and their children by watering down
document and evidentiary standards -- making it easy for individuals to use fake
Social Security cards to apply for benefits.with little to no chance of getting
caught. In addition,. Obama's S-CHIP expansion revoked Medicaid application
time limits that were part of the 1996 welfare reform law. Immigration activists
see the provisions as first steps toward universal coverage for illegals.
"Explosive"? The applause certainly was. Obama's praise of the weakened
immigrant eligibility rules drew the strongest claps and cheers from members of
Congress at the S-CHIP signing event.
Immigration analyst James R. Edwards Jr. reported last week in National
Review that "no health legislation on the table requires federal, state or
local agencies -- or private institutions receiving federal funds -- to check
the immigration status of health-program applicants, so some of the money
distributed via Medicaid and tax credits inevitably would go to illegal aliens.",
Moreover, the Senate Finance Committee plan creates a new preference for
illegal aliens by exempting them from the mandate to buy insurance.
That's right. Law-abiding, uninsured Americans would be fined if they didn't
submit to the Obamacare prescription. Law-breaking border-crossers, visa-
overstayers and deportation fugitives would be spared.
The solution is not to give them health insurance, but to turn off the magnets
that draw them to enter illegally in the first place.
For years, advocates of uncontrolled immigration have argued that illegal


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


Michelle Malkin


aliens are not getting free health care, and that even if they were, they would not
be not draining government budgets. The fiscal crisis in California gives lie to
those talking points. In March, the Associated Press reported that Sacramento
and Contra Costa counties were slashing staff and closing clinics due to
the prohibitive costs of providing non-emergency health services for illegal
immigrants.
"The general situation there is being faced by nearly every health department
across the country, and if not right now, shortly," Robert M. Pestronk, executive
director of the National Association of County and City Health Officials, told the
AP. The Texas state comptroller put the price tag for illegal alien hospital care at
$1.3 billion in 2006. USA Today reported that from 2001 to 2004, spending for
emergency Medicaid for illegal immigrants rose by 28 percent in North Carolina
alone. Clinics across the Midwest have also been shuttered under the weight of
illegal immigrant care costs.
At a time when Democratic leaders are pushing rationed care in a world of
limited resources, Americans might wonder where the call for shared sacrifice
is from illegal immigrant patients like those in Los Angeles getting free liver
and kidney transplants at UCLA Medical Center. "I'm just mad," illegal alien
Jose Lopez told the Los Angeles Times last year after receiving two taxpayer-
subsidized liver transplants while impatiently awaiting approval for state health
insurance.
Now, multiply that sense of entitlement by 12 million to 20 million illegal
immigrants. Welcome to the open-borders Obamacare nightmare.

Medical care confusion


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


s there a coherent argument for government-
controlled medical care or are slogans and
hysteria considered sufficient?
We hear endlessly about how many
Americans don't have health insurance. But, if we
stop and think-- which politicians hope we never
do-- that raises the question as to why that calls for
government-controlled medical care.
A bigger question is whether medical care will be
better or worse after the government takes it over.
There are many available facts relevant to those
crucial questions but remarkably little interest in
those facts.
There are facts about the massive government-run
medical programs already in existence in the United
States-- Medicare, Medicaid and veterans' hospitals-
- as well as government-run medical systems in other
countries.
None of the people who are trying to rush
government-run medical care through Congress
before we have time to think about it are pointing
to Medicare, Medicaid or veterans' hospitals as
shining examples of how wonderful we can expect
government medical care to be when it becomes
"universal."
As for those uninsured Americans we keep
hearing about, there is remarkably little interest in
why they don't have insurance. It cannot be poverty,
for the poor can automatically get Medicaid.
In fact, we already know that there are people
with substantial incomes, who choose to spend those
incomes on other things, especially if they are young
and in good health. If necessary, they can always go
to a hospital emergency room and receive treatment
there, whether or not they have insurance.
Here, the advocates of government-run medical


care say that we all end up paying, one way or
another, for the free medical care that hospitals are
forced by law to provide in their emergency rooms.
But unless you think that any situation you don't
like is a reason to give politicians a blank check for
"change," the relevant question becomes wiheiher
the alternative is either less expensive or of better
quality. Nothing is cheaper just because part of the
price is paid in higher taxes.
Such questions seldom get asked, much less
answered. We are like someone being rushed by a
used car dealer to sign on the dotted line. But getting
stuck with a car that is a lemon is nothing compared
to signing away your right to decide what medical
care you or your loved ones will get in life and death
situations.
Politicians can throw rhetoric around about
"bringing down the cost of health care" or they can
even throw numbers around. But the numbers that
politicians are throwing around don't match the
numbers that the Congressional Budget Office finds
when it analyzes the hard data.
An old advertising slogan said, "Progress is
our most important product." With politicians,
confusion is their most important product. They
confuse bringing down the price of medical care with
bringing down the cost. And they confuse medical
care with health care.
Nothing is easier than for governments to impose
price controls. They have been doing this, off an
on, for thousands of years-- repeatedly resulting in
(1) shortages, (2) quality deterioration and (3) black
markets. Whyiwould anyone want any of those
things when it comes to medical care?
Refusing to pay the costs is not the same as
bringing down the cost. That is why price controls
create these problems. When developing a new
pharmaceutical drug costs roughly a billion dollars,
you are either going to pay the billion dollars or


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


Thomas Sowell


cause people to stop spending a billion dollars to
develop new drugs.
The confusion of "health care" with medical care
is the crucial confusion. Years ago, a study showed
that Mormons live a decade longer than other
Americans. Are doctors who treat Mormons so much
better than the doctors who treat the rest of us? Or
do Mormons avoid doing a lot of things that shorten
people's lives?
The point is that health care is largely in your
hands. Medical care is in the hands of doctors.
Things that depend on what doctors do-- cancer
survival rates, for example-- are already better here
than in countries with government-run medical
systems. But, if political rhetoric prevails, we may
yet sell our birthright and not even get the mess of
pottage.

Chiefland Police receive $14,000 grant


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Chiefland citizens are going to be
seeing the Chiefland police on the road
a lot more.
The Chiefland Police Department
received the federal Edward Byrne
Memorial State and Local Law
Enforcement Assistance Grant Program
for $14,000.
The grant was created by the Anti-
Drug Abuse Act of 1988 to provide
a partnership among federal, state
and local governments to create safer
communities, according to the Bureau
of Justice Assistance web site.
The grant may be used to provide
personnel, equipment, training, technical
assistance and information systems.
The Chiefland Police Department
will spend the money on equipment
for the patrol vehicles, said Chiefland
Police Chief Robert Douglas.
LED lights will be installed in the
inside dash of the vehicles, he said.
The light bar was taken off the top
of the cars at the beginning of this year

When police contacted Walker they
found a Crazy Glue bottle in his right
front pants pocket containing three white
pills identified through poison control as
10 mg of Hydrocodone, one 350 mg of
Cirisoprodol and one 10 mg Methadone.
Walker said the pills were given to him
by a friend for back pain, but he said he
had no valid prescription for any of the
three pills found in his possession.
* Chiefland police arrested an 18-
year-old local woman July 25 for breach
of the peace and resisting officers when
she refused to leave the parking lot qf
Psychoz bar in south Chiefland where
about 70 people had gathered and were
arguing and brandishing weapons.
Police said Indigo J. McMahon, 616E.
Park Ave., was told to leave the premises
three times but refused. McMahon
continued to argue with another female
and was beating on a fence trying to fight
with a third female.
When Officer Jay Bolton attempted to
arrest her she pulled her hands away from
him. He used force to place her on the
ground and handcuff her.
* A 51-year-old Chiefland man was
arrested July 24 for being drunk and
causing a traffic-crash at the entrance to
Sunset Villas-on S.W. '14"t Ave.
Police said Larry James Donald had
been drinking when his passenger car left
the roadway 100 feet from the driveway
of Sunset Villas, traveled through the
ditch and driveway and struck the left side
of Carl Cowin's pickup truck.
Neither man was injured.


in an attempt to increase the unit's gas
mileage.
The department has a gasoline budget
of $67,000 per year, and as of this month
only $24,766, or about 36 percent, of
that allotment has been used.
So far the move has saved on gas
tremendously, Douglas said.And placing
LED lights inside of the vehicles will
allow it to continue while- also having
light visibility.
The department will also purchase
laptops and radar devices for the
vehicles.
Currently, there are only two radar
devices belonging to the department.
The grant will allow them to buy eight
more.
There are 12 units operating with the
Chiefland Police Department, and now
with the grant money all 12 will have
a laptop.
Because of a goverAment state
contract, the department can purchase
the laptops for $200 each from Verizon
wireless, Douglas said.
With each law enforcement officer
now having his own computer, they will


Donald was arrested on charges of
driving under the influence with property
damage, breach of peace and refusal to
sign a citation.
* A 26-year-old Old Town man was
arrested July 16 on charges of unlawfuld
possession of prescription drugs and
possessionofdrugparaphernalia following
a traffic stop for an expired registration.
David Micah May was a passenger in
a Chevy truck driven by Larry Colson of
Cedar Key. When Colson was asked if
there were any illegal drugs in the vehicle,
he invited officers to search the truck.
Officers found a silver spoon on the
passenger side of the dash board with a
bent handle with the bottom burnt and
containing a powdery residue. Inside the
glove compartment was another spoon
with a white- colored pill stuck to the
inside of the spoon.
May told Lt. A. Graves the substance
on both spoons was Oxycontin. May said
he had no prescription for the drugs and
had bought the pills on the street. Officers
also found two used needles and syringes
in the passenger-side air conditioning
vent.

the roads, he said. It will allow them to
download forms and fill out reports from
their patrol vehicles; whereas currently
they have to return to the station in order
to fill out the necessary paperwork.
"What I want is to keep them out
on the streets as much as possible," he
said.
This is the first time the department
has received a federal grant, said Laurie
Copeland, City of Chiefland financial
coordinator.
The department applied for three
grants this year, she said. The second
grant, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009, was applied
for by the Levy County Sheriff's Office


and the individual Levy County city
police departments.
The grant, which totals $328,616,
will be broken up equally among all the.
county departments and sheriff's office.
The Chiefland Police Department's
$65,000 is expected any day.
The third grant, the Community
Oriented Policing (or COPS Grant), if
awarded to the Chiefland Police, will
pay for the salary of three new positions
within the department for three years
effective Oct. 1, without the requirement
that the department will have to match
any of the funds.
Douglas said he is very excited about
all three of the grants.
"Anything to save the taxpayers
money."

Art group

asks for

donations

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The director of a non-profit
Williston organization that uses the
arts and recreation to improve the lives
of young people spoke to the Williston
Rotary Club last week about the need
for funds.
Mimi Johnson, director of We
Soar Inc., said the group has gone
around requesting funds, but due to the
economic conditions people say they
just can't help.
One of the many projects the
group fimds each year is giving school
supplies to children. She said the
organization gave away 100 packs the
first year and the number increases
annually.
"We feel good we're giving them
something they need," Johnson said.
The group also sponsors the Gospel
Music Festival, a community event in
Williston that showcases various styles
and forms of Gospel music.
It sponsors the Gospel Fest Youth
(ages 8-18) and Mass Choir, a group of
,volunteer singers and musicians from
the local and surrounding communities.
Membership is open to anyone.
The organization offers Summer
Arts Enrichment, a program that offers
instruction and participation in dance
and mime, vocal and instrumental
music, drama, stepping, and other
creative arts.
Another program is Arts-in-
Ministry, with the organization
providing Biblical-based workshops
and hands-on training to host churches
and ministries.
Johnson said arts and recreation are
not just extracurricular activities, but
are essential to the development of a
successful and healthy community and
society as a whole.
If you are interested in signing up
for the activities, contact Mimi Johnson
at (352) 528-2170 or (352) 361-6528.


Former Principal Ernst Kordgien
did a good job, she said, but she feels
the school looks "very clinical and very
institutional from the outside."
Asbeil wants to make the school
look more friendly. She also invited the
Rotarians to come have lunch with the
kids and be a guest reader for them.
"We want to become a friendly and
professionalplace," she said.
Asbell views parents and students as
clients. She said the school has to begin
treating students and parents as clients,
"to help the students be as successful as
they can be."
She asked Rotarians to tell her if
they see anything that needs to be fixed
at WMS and tell her if they are aware of
a negative interaction with staff.
Asbell said School Resource Officer
Grant Sandlin, a deputy sheriff, spends
most of his time at Williston High
School, but Williston Police Chief Dan
Davis has offered to use one of his
officers, Jason Gallup, as a part-time
SRO at the middle school.
The school will have all the same
sports as before, but budget constraints
will impact sports. There will 'be fewer
games, and girls and boys will travel
together on the same bus, Asbell said.
Asbell said she is aware of the


devastating F grade received by Williston
High School this year and is aware that
the middle school must prepare students
to succeed academically at WHS.
She said her grandchildren will
eventually attend WMS.
"My children and my grandchildren's
future are tied to that school," she said.
Asbell worked for 23 years in
elementary schools, six in high schools,
but this will be her first experience
administering a middle school.
Her working days didn't begin in
education.
After having her second child, she
worked at a phone company and later
for Archer Community School as an
aide. She became an office clerk at the
school, front office receptionist and data
base clerk when computers came into
schools. Later she was secretary to the
principal.
"It was there I -discovered what I
wanted to do," she said.
She decided to go back to school. She
attended Santa Fe Community College
first, and then St. Leo's College. She
spent three years teaching at Archer
Community School before going back
to earn her master's'degree. She spent
two summers working on her master's
and living in a dormitory with Catholic


nuns.
She found she had a talent for helping
children improve their reading skills.
She also discovered she had a talent for
problem solving.
Her first job as a school administrator
was assistant principal at Newberry
High School for two years.
She heard through the grapevine
there were openings for three principals
in Levy County, one at WHS, one at
Cedar Key and one at Chiefland. Her
preference had been WHS, but she
found out after the interview that the
position had been filled, along with the
one at Cedar Key.
Assistant School Superintendent
Jeff Edison hired her as principal of
Chiefland High School. The first year
she wasn't .accepted, she said, but the
second and third years were better. She
raised CHS to a B-grade school.
Edison then approached her about
taking the job as WMS principal. It was
an offer that appealed to her because the
early years of her life had been spent in
Williston. She was one of nine children
of Jessie and Jule Roberts. Three of her
brothers still live in Williston. She said
everyone knows her brother Larry.
"It's good to come back home," .she


Scoggins Chevrolet of Chiefland
will remain open, officials from
the dealership said. (Rick Burn-

Scoggins Chevrolet will dodge cuts


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Journal


Two local Chevrolet dealers have
received letters from General Motors
saying their franchise agreements are
being renewed, while a third dealer was
released after the auto manufacturer
filed bankruptcy.
Scoggins Chevrolet. Buick in
Chiefland and Dixie Chevrolet in Cross
City both received letters earlier this
month from General Motors identifying
them as key dealers and saying
their franchise agreements would be
renewed.
Florida's oldest Chevrolet dealership,
Jim Douglas Chevrolet in High Springs,
received a letter from GM in late May
releasing the 83-year-old dealership.


Jim Douglas Chevrolet is one of
2,600 dealerships nationwide expected
to receive a non-renewal letter from
GM by the end of 2010. In the future,
Jim Douglas Chevrolet will continue to
offer used cars, auto parts and repair.
Victor Scoggins of Scoggins
Chevrolet said recently that the public's
perception of the turmoil within GM
hurts car makers as a whole, not just
dealers.
Scoggins explained that his family's.
35-year-old dealership is now looking
to the future and a stronger GM.
The letter that GM sent to both
Scoggins Chevrolet Buick and Dixie
Chevrolet indicated that the dealerships
had been identified by GM as two of its
key dealers for Chevrolet brands, and
Scoggins was also listed as a,key dealer


for Buick brands.
GM's letter to the dealers stated,
"Part of GM's restructuring efforts
include plans for a dealer network
consisting of fewer, stronger and more
properly located dealers which we
hope will allow for higher through-put
and enhanced business potential. Your
selection as a dealer for the Chevrolet,
Buick brands shows the confidence we
have in your dealership being part of the
new GM."
According to Jeff Mosley, general
manager of Dixie Chevrolet, the
dealership made it through the recent
GM cuts as it has survived transitions
in the past including the change from
Griner's Chevrolet in Cross City, which
opened in 1948, to Dixie Chevrolet five
years ago.


Burn, from Page 1A


Chiefland city commissioners voted Monday night
to apply for a new one-year burn permit from DEP
to continue using the burn site. However the permit
would allow only the burning of limbs and other
yard trash collected from the industrial park and
neighboring city cemeteries.
There was confusion about whether a DEP official
actually visited the city to close the burn pit last week.
Kris Kirts, air program administrator for the northeast
district of DEP said no DEP employees visited the
Chiefland burn site.
However, Chiefland Public Works Director Shane
Keene said a DEP official did visit the site. City
Manager Grady Hartzog also told commissioners that
a DEP official had visited the burn pit and made it
clear the site was closing.
Keene said they were given reasons for the
closing.
"We were burning debris that was not site-specific,"
Keene said. "We were burning debris from around the
city. They're going to work with us on getting another
permit."
Kirts said DEP has asked the city to send a letter
requesting another burn permit. When his office
reviews the letter and evaluates the site, a decision will
be made on whether to issue the city another permit.
He said the city might be able to obtain a permit, but
DEP must look at the proximity of neighbors and how
the burning and smoke might affect them.
"We haven't received the letter and no one (from
DEP) has visited the site," Kirts said.
He said city officials may have received a site visit
from the Florida Division of Forestry and confused

Chiefland keeps

tax rate, but budget

remains unbalanced

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Citing the tough economic times,
Chiefland City Commissioners
voted unanimously Monday to set
the preliminary property tax village
at the same level as last year and take
a $22,351 loss in tax revenues, but
they were less certain about what to
do about the fire department budget.
Commissioners voted to retain
the 4.750 millage rate, even though
total operating revenues for the city
are down by $272,000 overall and
the rate would force them to deny
employee pay raises, eliminate
incentive bonuses, promotions and
limit other spending.
Commissioner Teresa Barron
suggested a 3 percent cost of living
increase for employees except those
in the executive branch, which she
said wasn't really a raise in pay.
The city would have to find the
funds to pay for the increase in
pay. City Manager Grady Hartzog
recommended no pay raises.
"What I'm concerned about is
giving the raises during a recession,"
Hartzog said.
The proposed 2009-10 city budget
is just over $3 million. As of Tuesday
it was $60,000 out of balance. The
city would have to dip into reserve
funds to balance the spending plan.
Commissioners are reluctant to dip
any deeper into reserves.
Commissioners have two public
budget workshops and two public
hearings before the budget numbers
must be finalized in late September.
The city commission discussed
taking $103,000 of unspent fire
department money that had been
carried forward from previous
fire budgets to balance the city's
overall budget. Documents showed
$27,332 of the unspent fire money
was collected in Fowler's Bluff and
$75,720 was collected in Chiefland.
Fire Chief John Ward wanted to
keep the funds in his department. He
said the Fowlers Bluff money should
be spent there.
The city has a contract with
Fowler's Bluff to handle firefighting
duties for the unincorporated city.
The contract calls for Fowler's Bluff
to turn over the money it receives
from the county fire assessment
collections to the city.
City Attorney Norm Fugate said
the money belongs to Chiefland.
He said the contract allows the city
to spend money as itsees fit. It's a
contract for services. Ward said the
Fowlers Blufffire advisory committee
feels the leftover money should be
spent on equipment purchased in the
name of Fowlers Bluff.
A meeting of city and Fowlers
Bluff officials will be scheduled.
Fugate said if the commissioners
want to give the money to Fowlers
Bluff for their equipment needs the
contract can be amended.


Possible power plant for Gilchrist?


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Gilchrist County is moving forward
with a proposed amendment to its
comprehensive land-use plan that
would create a place where an electrical
generation plant could be constructed in
the future on 520 acres of land east of
Bell owned by a large cooperative.
Seminole Electric Cooperative,
Inc. bought the property in 2008 and
views it as a "potentially suitable site
for natural gas fueled generating units
or a solar installation," but has no plans
for construction of a plant, according to
Michele Collet Kris, spokeswoman for
Seminole.
Seminole Electric Cooperative is
an electrical power provider for' 10
cooperatives, including Central Florida
Electric Cooperative in Chiefland.
Seminole's total revenues in 2008 were
$1.2 billion. It has power generation
plants near Palatka, Fla. and in Hardee
County.
Kriz said the property in Gilchrist
County is within a half mile of a Florida
Gas Transmission pipe, which is one
of the reasons it is suitable for a power
plant site. If FGT builds another natural
gas pipeline through the area, as it plans
to do, Seminole Electric Cooperative
would evaluate the alternative "if and
when it was needed."
"It's a low key thing because we have
no plans to build additional generation,"
Kriz said.


Gilchrist County Planning Director
Taylor Brown said the county realizes
Seminole Electric Cooperative has no
plans to build on the 520-acres, in part
due to current economic conditions, but
the county currently has no land use
that would accommodate an electrical
power generating plant if one were to
be proposed.
"We want to assure that electrical
generation could go on this big piece of
land," Brown said.
The county will soon transmit the
proposed comprehensive land-use plan
amendment for electrical generating
plants to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs for review. The
DCA will comment on the plan and tell
the county whether there are any flaws
that need to be corrected.
When the land use amendment's
language is satisfactory to DCA officials,
it can be brought to the Gilchrist County
Commission for a public hearing and a
decision on whether to approve it, reject
it or modify it in some way.
The land use amendment creates a
sub-policy in the public use portion of
the comprehensive plan. The existing
public use portion of the plan allows
public, charter and private schools,
public buildings and grounds and other
public service facilities, including solid
waste transfer stations, solid waste
processing and recycling facilities,
land-clearing debris-disposal facilities,
public health facilities and educational
uses.


Under the amended version, the
county commission would also allow
electrical generation and transmission
facilities and "similar essential
services." The applicant would need not
only land use approval from the county
commission but a special use permit as
well.
The 520-acre site is a remote
location east of Bell with no county
roads connected to the property, Brown
said. The land currently has only timber
company roads.
Brown and Kriz said coal generation
was never a consideration for the
property. Natural gas and solar were
always the fuel sources that were
considered for use on the property,
should a power generation plant ever be
constructed there. But she said there's
no telling what the future holds.
"By the time we build on that site,
the technology might be different," she
said.
Natural gas and coal are both fossil
fuels, but natural gas is believed to
release less carbon into the atmosphere.
Along with current economic
conditions, which Brown said have
created an "abundance of electricity,"
Seminole Electric Cooperative is
worried about future competition from
Progress Energy's proposed nuclear
power plant for southern Levy County.
"If they build the plant, and there's
no customers (for a Gilchrist County
facility), that's a big problem," Brown
said.


Williston takes look at exotic animals

Story and photo by Terry Witt .,
Staff Writer " -!


Williston has had its share of exotic wildlife incidents, and
the mayor last week suggested imposing regulations to control
such animals.
Mayor Gerald Hethcoat had read the news story about how
a pet python had strangled a baby girl in her crib in Florida.
"This is not something we're exempt from," Hethcoat
said.
He recalled that a flock of peacocks had made an appearance
in Williston at one time. lie recalled a python escaping.
Hethcoat was concerned about emergency responders
going into homes without knowing there might be constrictor
snakes or venomous snakes in the home.
Commissioner Art Nussel wondered why Hethcoat was
talking only about snakes.
"What about bears, lions and tigers," he said in apparent
reference to a property owner south of Williston who has
all three species on her property and has been criticized by
neighbors.
Commissioners instructed staff to investigate what the
current city animal control ordinance says about exotic species,
including snakes, and how state law regulates the possession
of such animals.
Commissioners don't want to adopt an ordinance that would
conflict with state law or Florida Game and Freshwater Fish
Commission rules, but at the same time they want to ensure
residents of the city are adequately protected.
Commissioners also approved a mutual aid agreement with
the city of Ocala at the request of Police Chief Dan Davis.
The agreement allows either community to extend mutual
aid to the other in times of intensive law enforcement situations
when one department may not have enough resources. The
idea behind the agreement is to better protect the health, safety
and welfare of residents in times of emergencies.
Either city can furnish necessary equipment, resources and
facilities and render mutual aid as needed. The party furnishing
the aid shall bear the loss or damage to their equipment and pay
any expense incurred in the operation, including compensating
their own employees.


A monkey peers out of nhis cage in Dr. suzanne
Billiar's backyard south of Williston. The doctor also
cares for other animals, such as a lion, a tiger and
a bear. Williston city commissioners have discussed
ownership of exotic animals and how that affects
their surroundings, particularly how to protect the
health, safety and welfare of residents in times of
emergency.

Pastors master Bronson track ... but who is faster?


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson Motor Speedway had its
spinouts, close calls and controversy
Friday night, but fans also got a chance
to watch five local pastors strap on
helmets and race to show their support
for the speedway.
'Owner Tony Parker has banned
alcohol in an effort to encourage a family
atmosphere at a facility that in the past
wasn't geared to the family trade.
Pastor Troy Turner of Bronson
First Baptist Church won the race
with the Rev. Jim Waldron of Bronson
Church of God in second, the Rev.
Kent Zimmermann of Turning Point
Ministries in third, the Rev. Terrell
Burge of Bronson Community Church
in fourth and the Rev. Glynn Webber of
Ebenezer Baptist Church in fifth.
The 10-lap race featured the five
pastors in Hornet stock cars loaned to
the clergymen by regular racers at the
track. The Hornet race cars are basically
cars that come straight off the street with
few additions. The pastors appeared to
be a good fit for the slower-moving race
cars.
The pastors brought their own
cheering sections.
"It was just for fun," said Turner.
"We want the community to know this
is a good family atmosphere race track
and we support that." '
Turner said he would encourage
the teens in his church to attend the
speedway on Saturday nights..because
of the family atmosphere.
But the pastors admitted they enjoyed
buzzing around the speedway at high
speed.
"That was a blast," said
Zimmermann.
When the men of God left the track,
the men who love to race for'sport took
over.

Sportsman Controversy
The Sportsman feature was won by
Shelton Bowers of Chiefland, but it was
a quirky race where the leader, Matt
Blum, was knocked out of the race by a
valve spring malfunction when he held
a half-lap lead.
Bowers, who was running in second
place, saw Blum slow down quickly and
the flagman wave his hands. He said he
thought the race might be over. He had
no one in the stands with a two-way
radio to tell him what was happening.
Bowers slowed quickly. The other
racers passed Bowers. But the race light
was green, meaning the race was still in
progress.
Before he reached the next turn, the


yellow flag came out to signal one of the
racers had spun out. All the racers were
forced to slow down. Bowers appealed
to Parker. He was given back his lead
spot in the race. He was in second when
Blum's malfunction happened.
But the compassion for Bowers ma)
have cost William Edwards the race.
Edwards finished in second. He was
leading the race when Bowers got his
spot back. Bowers had earlier smashed
into Edwards' broadside at high speed., It
was accidental. Miraculously Edwards
was able to continue racing.
He didn't blame Bowers for the high-
powered hit to his car, but he wasn't
happy about Bowers getting back the
lead after he had slowed down while the
race was in progress.
"He stopped in the middle of the
race track and they put him in front,"
Edwards said. "He said he thought they
told him to stop. When the green light, is
going, it's not time to stop."
Bowers said he thought the race was
over, which is why he suddenly slowed
down when he saw Blum rapidly losing
speed and the flagman waving his
hands. He said he got his position back
because he was leading just before the
spin out. The racers are generally given
the positions they held a lap earlier.
"I saw Matt pull off. I looked at the
flagman. I thought he was waving hands
to say stop," Bowers said.
As for the high speed hit to Edwards,
Bowers said it was something he hated.
He said he wanted to turn his race car to
move a position lower on the track, but
the car didn't turn for some reason. He
believes his tires were too worn.
"I just run William Edwards over. 1
apologized. I didn't mean it," Bowers
said. "I don't like to run into people."
The powerful crash into Edwards'
passenger door pushed Edwards car
sideways about five feet, but the nose
of Edwards' car remained pointed down
the track and he was able to continue
racing. Edwards didn't blame Bowers
for the crash.


Five local pastors raced in the Hornet class Saturday night to show
their support for Bronson Motor Speedway and the family atmosphere.
From the left are Rev. Kent Zimmermann, Rev. Jim Waldron who
finished second, Rev. Troy Turner who won the race, Rev. Glynn
Webber and Rev. Terrell Burae.

Rubbing too hard will cause spin

is penalized by being moved to the back

Stalnaker was careful about how hard
he pushed on Cooper's car as he prepared
to pass.
Stalnaker was driving a Camaro he
built seven years ago. He said the car has
won many races for him. Stalnaker started
at the back of the pack in Saturday's race,
but his speed and passing skills quickly
brought him to Cooper's rear bumper.
He made the quick rub against
Cooper's left rear fender. Sparks flew.
He shot into the lead and never gave it

He said Cooper congratulated him.
"Whenever you can, you go quick;
you can't wait," Stalnaker said.


Young girls join ranks of mud racers in Bronson


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The mud racetrack at
Bronson Motor Speedway has
become the most popular event
among the regulars, most of"
them men who are mechanically
skilled and can build their own
trucks. They enjoy the adrenalin
rush of barreling. down a muddy
track at breakneck speeds.
The fastest time of the night
belonged to Burt Butcher with
4.013. -
But not all the mud racers
were adults Friday, nor were
they all men.
Two of the smallest mud
racers 'were 10-year-old Sarah
'Conquest, who has her own
truck called "Girl Zuki." Her
best friend and fellow racer,
Ashley Newsome, 8-years-old,
flies down the track in her dad's
truck.
It was Ashley who won the
kids competition Friday. Sarah,'
who had won the two previous
kids' mud racing competitions,
came'in second. Both girls race


with their dads sitting in the
passenger seat watching their
every move, but enjoying the
ride.
. Sarah said she likes mud
racing because it allows her
,to spend time with her mom
and dad doing something she
enjoys. She likes the thrill of
stomping on the accelerator
and hearing the engine roar as
the wheels spin mud and she
takes off for the thrill ride.
"Sometimes 1 have it to the
floor, sometimes I don't," she
said.
Her mom and dad, Arthur
and Lori Conquest, are mud
racers. Arthur Conquest
surprised his daughter on his
birthday this year by giving her
the Suzuki Jeep for a present.
Her grandfather did the special
paint job.
"She just wanted to do it,"
Arthur Conquest said. "She
wanted to race cars. I was a
little leery, if you know what I
mean."
The compromise was the
mud racing jeep.
14*


"As long as they're having
fun, that's what counts," he said.
"I've been doing it for many
years. Now it's their turn."
Conquest also races
stock cars at Bronson Motor
Speedway in the Sportsman
feature.
Ashley, daughter of Travis
and Crissie Newsome, said she
thinks mud racing is something
that's lots of fun. She said
driving fast doesn't scare
her at all. Sarah nodded her
enthusiastic agreement.
"1 think it's fun," Ashley
said with a smile. "It's really
neat."
Sarah said her favorite things
to do are to go to the little pet
shop, a place where she can
get miniature toy animals. She
likes swimming, "and I like to
hunt a bunch," especially with
dogs.
The two girls share common
interests. Ashley' said her dad
just got another dog.
They also love to mud race.
It's a family sport at the
speedway.


Ashley Newsome, Sarah Conquest and Sarah's mom
Lori Conquest are all mud racers. They are pictured in
Sarah's mud racing jeep.

Need a little 'staycation'?


Get away (if only for the day) in Levy County


Story, photos by Tara Massagee
Correspondent

The summer is beginning to
wind down and the kids are
about to start back to school.
This means one thing, vacation
time. But, where does a family go on
vacation when money is tight and jobs
are scarce?
An alternative to going out-of-town
and spending big bucks may lie in your
own back yard, a "staycation."
Throughout Levy County there are
numerous places to go, for little to no
fee, that can accommodate the entire
family.
There are 18 recreational vehicle
lots and campgrounds, three bed and
breakfasts," 36 motels and about 50
restaurants within the county, said
Carol McQueen executive director for
the Levy County Visitors Bureau.
"Levy County has a vast, rich
inventory of nature, wildlife, preserved
lands, marshland, vistas, great fishing
and great boating," McQueen said. -
Starting in the northern most part
of the county is the town of Fanning
Springs. The town has its own spring,
Fanning Springs, located at 18020
N.W. Hwy. 19.
According to the Web site,
floridastateparks.org, the spring has
a picnic area, nature trail, camping,
canoe and kayak rentals, swimming,
scuba diving and snorkeling.
The Website also stated that Florida
parks are open 365 days a year, from
8 a.m. until sundown and admission
is $6 for a passenger car of two to
eight people, $4 for a single occupant
vehicle.
A few miles to the south of Fanning
Springs is Chiefland. Chiefland also
has its own spring, Manatee Springs,
located at 11650 N.W. 115th Ave.
The spring has the same attractions,
admission and hours of operation as
Fanning Springs.
If swimming and camping does
not sound appealing then wine tasting
at Dakotah Winery may be easier to
swallow. Dakotah Winery, 14365 N.W.
Hwy. 19, has been in Chiefland for
almost 24 years.
Owned and operated by the father
and son duo of Rob and Max Rittgers,
the winery produces eight wines and
one grape juice, each of which are
available for free sample tastes.
"It gives them (a customer) an
experience of what the wine is like
before they purchase it," Rob Rittgers
said.
The most expensive bottle of wine
on their menu is $12.99 and the lowest
price is the muscadine juice at $5.99 per
bottle. We have "reasonable prices,"
Rittgers said.
He said there are many things
people can do at the winery. They can
participate in a winetasting, feed the
ducks and geese at the pond and have
lunch on the patio. (No wine can be
consumed on the premises, except for
the samples, he said.) ,
Then they could head to the springs
or travel on to Cedar Key. There's "a
lot of things you can do in one big trip"
around this area, he said.
Rittgers said he has seen families
bring their children and they will feed
the ducks, "next thing you know they're
25 and married," and still coming back
to feed them.
The winery is open Monday thru
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Leaving Chiefland and heading east
is the city of Bronson. Located down a
winding country road is Bronson Blue
Springs, 4550N.E. 9th place. The spring
has a diving platform, playground and
a barbeque pavilion.
According to the Web site,
levycounty.org, the spring is open
from April 1 to Sept. 30 each year and
admission is $1 per person.
Now, for those who are looking
for an adrenaline pumping, high-
speed Saturday night, Bronson Motor
Speedway can be found at 9950 N.E.
SR 24. As listed on the Web site,
bronsonmotorspeedway.org, admission
to the track is $10 for adults, $8
for seniors 60 and up, and free for


handicapped accessible.
The gates to the raceway open at
5:30 p.m. and racing starts at 8 p.m.
A.new attraction to the park is a
mudbogging hole. Bogging takes
place on Friday nights with the same
admissions and times as above, except
the gates open at 6 p.m.
Located southeast of Bronson is
Cedar Key. Cedar Key offers a wide-
range of activities from shopping, to
swimming to fishing on the pier.
Tom Liebert, owner of Kayak Cedar
Keys Rentals, has a variety of kayaks
available to any person who wants to
take a trip down the waterway. A three-
hour session will cost $25 for a single
rider and $40 for double riders. He also
provides group rates.
Liebert said he has not had to
change his prices in 5 years and that he
is "really proud of that fact. I'm very
committed to my business."
Liebert said that if you have never
"paddled" before it is okay - he teaches
everyone how to before they go out on
the water.
He said, "75 percent of the time
I'm giving instructions. I've done this
thousands of times."
Liebert said that very rarely does
someone come back from "paddling"
without a smile on their face. "I love
them having a good time, he said."
If getting wet in the water does not
sound like fun, you may want to take to
the skies by way of Island Air Tours.
Owner Marvin Franks can be found
each Saturday, Sunday and holiday at
the Cedar Key airport from noon to 4
p.m. He is also available during the
week by appointment.
He said his Cessna model 170
airplane can accommodate up to three
people plus and the pilot.
The rates are $20 per person if two
or more people are in the plane. It is
$30 for a single rider. The ride lasts
about 20 minutes and offers views of
the different islands in Cedar Key.
"We advertise the best view in
town, and every seat is a window seat,"
he said.
The last destination is the town of
Williston. Nestled down a long asphalt
road is Devil's Den, 5390 N.E. 180th
Ave.
"You can have a really lovely day
here," said Rowena Thomas, manager
of guest relations.
She said the den is open to scuba
divers and snorkelers, but swimming
is not allowed in the den, only in the
pool.
"Safety is our number one issue
here," Thomas said.
Admission to the park is $9 per
person for snorkelers and swimmers,
and $37 plus tax for divers. Diving
equipment is also available for rent. No
solo dives are allowed.
, Camping is allowed at the park,
which will accommodate RVs and tents.
There are also cabins and trailers people
can camp in. Rates vary depending on
the activity.
The park is open Monday to
Thursday from 9 a:m. to 6 p.m. and
Friday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Another destination in Williston,
that houses some of the largest animals
walking the earth, is Two Tails Ranch,
18655 N.E. 81st Street.
Owner and operator Patricia Zerbini
cares for elephants, a camel, donkeys,
a tiger, ostriches and ponies. She said
the park has been in Williston for 25
years but has just recently opened to
the public.
The park is open every day and costs
$7 for adults and $5 for children. She
said the park hosts school and daycare
tours, birthday parties and family tours
when weathertpermits.
She said they do give animal rides
but they are an extra charge.
An extra special treat that Zerbini
does is t-shirt painting by the elephants.
Each child can buy a shirt and Luke,
an Asian elephant, will paint the front
with his trunk and stamp the back with
his enormous foot.
Levy County is full of different
activities from swimming to meeting
an elephant.
"It's just a natural paradise," Carol

YOU CAN'T STEER A PARKED CAR


I'm not normally a big drag racing fan, but several
years ago my friend Barry gave me tickets to the
N.H.R.A. finals, and I decided to go. My wife, being
ever so gracious, quickly bowed out and suggested I
take the two kids.
I said, "Come on and go .
with us, honey?".
She said, "No, really. You
go." I now suspect she must've
been hearing from God.
After a quick stop for ear > ,'
plugs, we were on our way. The
kids were so excited. I could tell
we were in for a treat as soon '
as we arrived. The heavy smell 1
of burning rubber charged our
nostrils and the distant clamor ' "
of an anxious crowd spilled
over from the silver bleachers
lining the sweltering quarter
mile straightaway. The colorful
logo laden racing rigs were
sprawled out before us in all t A
their full regalia. I hurriedly
drug the kids past the souvenir With C
stands while simultaneously


beating them off my wallet like
an old pro.
Now I'm not normally paranoid, but as we were
climbing the stands I'm almost positive I noticed
people staring at my kids. Then they'd glare at me like
I was a flaming idiot! It made me mad. But hey, I just
figured they were delirious from being packed in there
like sardines in that 95-degree heat. What do they
know with their big goofy ear phones on anyway?
I wasn't going to let it affect me. If they don't
care enough to bring their small children, it's not my
problem. Not one of them did, now that I think about it.
Anyway, we were just in time. They were announcing
the first race of the top fuel funny car finals!


Now, I'm not normally a whimp, but when those
first two cars roared past us at 314 mph with the super
subsonic rumble of a shuttle launch, I fear I may have
whimpered a little.


way...
,uy Sheffield


,After 1 got my breath
back, I began to feel heavy,
like I might fall over. Then I
realized it was because both
kids were hanging from me
like treed possums. Worse,
their ear plugs had rattled out
and the next two cars were
already on the starting line! ,
To be honest, from then
on. I never knew who raced
or who won, and didn't care.
The next few minutes were
purely a lesson in survival.
I finally screamed, "Let's
get out of here."
Both kids just looked at
me all wide-eyed. Then they
said, "What?" At least 1 think
that's what they said. 1 wasn't
sure. I'm pretty sure I heard
somebody call me a flaming


idiot.
Once we put a little distance between us and the
track, we began walking around checking out the
different racing teams. That part was actually very
interesting. You could walk right up to one of the cars
and watch as the crews worked on them.
It was great until one of those hot shots decided
to crank up one of those two zillion horse power jet
engines not five feet from us. The kids took off. I've
.never seen them run. so fast in all my life. When 1
looked back, they were about to catch me!
Now I'm not normally a betting man, but I'd say
the odds of this Johnny Bravo ever going back to that
track are slim to none. Yet those same races made a


completely different impression on my friend Barry's
teenage son Christopher. It stirred his desire for
working on cars. In fact, he decided that he wanted to
join one of those racing teams when he graduated.
Instead of running him down to a shrink like I
would have, Barry and his wife actually encouraged
him. Christopher talked to some of those racing
fellows and found out how to pursue the career.
For three years he worked hard and followed their
every suggestion. Then last month he beat all the
odds, and at just 21 years old he signed on with one
of the top N.H.R.A. racing teams ever: John Force
Racing. Wow!
Isn't it awesome how we are each made so
unique? Some people dig chasing tornados or
leaping from perfectly good airplanes. Pray for
em '. I have a friend who told me with a gleam in
her eye her secret desire is to learn to sew. We all
have such different passions.
Some of you may have given up on your dreams.
Maybe it's time for you to uncover it again and dust
it off a little. I'm sure it's still there, right where
you left it.
Just determine to steer clear of the fears and
excuses that throw you off track and cause you
to slam on the brakes. (Delight thyself also in the
LORD: and -he shall give thee the desires of thine
heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also
in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalms 37:4-5
KJV)
But anyway- Let's get those engines .started!
We've run under "caution" too long. God's ready
when you are. He can take you to the checkered
flag, but as my pastor always says, "You can't steer
a parked car."

Log Cabin Quilters Dahlia pattern quilt.


The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, July 23, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was
another great day. We had quilters
inside and six Lancaster boys with
Nick Turner outside. I believe the
boys got the most work done and
there is so much to do. The boys were
mowing, pruning, watering, cleaning
flowerbeds, cleaning the kitchen
and using the dust mop in the Great


Room. But everyone had a great day.
Toni Collins came by and visited
with us. Maria got quilts put up and
packed away some. There is also so
much to do here.
Lunch was great with fried chicken,
chicken alfredo, lots of salads, rice,
butter beans, pear cobbler, peach
cobbler, two types of chocolate cake
and lots more.

Movie Choices for Kids


G-FORCE
(Running time: 153 minutes)
Rated PG
With the voices of: Nicolas Cage,
Steve Buscemi, Penelope Cruz, Sam
Rockwell, Tracy Morgan
And live performances by: Bill
Nighy, Will Arnett and Zach
Galifianakas

G-Force became Z-Force for me as
I dozed off in the middle of the movie.
But what G-Force lacks in easy-to-
understand plot and original dialogue,
it makes up for with cute guinea pigs,
clever gadgets and superb computer 3-
D animation.
It is hard to buy off on the idea of
the FBI training guinea pigs to become
special agents - hard for me as an
adult, but probably not so hard for an
8-year-old. The guinea pigs pull off


secret missions and have near-misses
that will be thrilling for younger
children.
While the guinea pigs are pursuing
a bad guy, they are also being pursued
by FBI men trying to stop them. Who
is the bad guy? We think we know, but
we don't know. The plot twist may
be confusing for younger kids, but
the whole idea of these cute creatures
outsmarting dogs and people will be fun
for them while it miglt be boring for
you. Though this isn't the best movie
this year, it will be entertaining for
children. Can you rope grandparents
into taking the kids to see this one?
There is some violence with scary
machines - your child may have
nightmares about your coffeemaker,
no bad language and no sex. G-Force
should be fine for children 7 and up
but a snoozer for parents.


500 DAYS OF SUMMER
(Running time: 95 Minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey
Deschanel

Ugh! This movie is 95 minutes of
whining! This story involves a young man
(Gordon-Levitt) who believes his life
will be transformed when he meets, "the
one." He thinks he met her in his office.
But Sumnmer (Deschanel), his dream
girl, seems permanently damaged by her
parents' divorce and doesn't believe in
forever love.
But our boy jtunps in with both feet
anyway. The movie attempts to be clever
by skipping around the 500 days. One
minute we are at day 87 with Summer and
the next we are at day 432, watching our
guy being depressed. This makes it hard
to know exactly where their relationship
was at the time.


The bottom line is that our boy gets his
heart crushed by not believing Summer,
a total flake. When she leaves him, it's
tragic. But the real kicker is that Summer
changes her mind about love after she
leaves 'him and gets engaged to the next
guy who comes along. That is a supreme
blow to our 20-something guy who takes
it really hard. So she didn't really mean
what she said or she just dichdn't love him.
What a downer.
500 Days of Summer seemed like a 20-
something screenwriter spent 90 minutes
complaining to us about the girl who broke
his heart. 1 can't see teens relating much to
this movie. You just want to throw a pie
in Summer's smug, "let's be friends" face
and walk out.
There is no violence, some scenes of
pre-sex and post-sex and little bad language.
This is a talky movie. While 1 liked our guy,
I just didn't get what was so great about
Summer. Better to skip this one.

Program teaches children about photography, nature


'- ," .. '




Youth Conservation Corps worker Vance Renaud, a Chiefland High
School student, looks at the photo taken by Cedar Key School student
Hannah Brinkman at the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge
butterfly garden during the "Kids with Cameras" program July 22.


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge was open to a set of
photographers of a younger generation
last week.
The second round of the "Kids with
Cameras" program was held at the
Refuge west of Chiefland July 22. Three
children and three local high-schoolers
from the Youth Conservation Corps
participated in the program that took
them hiking through.the Refuge.
The program was held from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. and gave the children a chance to
see the wildlife and the facilities at the
federal park.
"Kids. with Cameras" began last
summer with 10 children and 10
disposable cameras.
"1 was so desperate to get kids out
here because 1 get so lonely," saic Refuge
Ranger Pam Darty, who coordi a es the
program.
The first round this summer was held
June 11, also with disposable cameras.
The disposable cameras were such a
pain because they had to be taken into
town to be developed quickly during
the program, Darty said. For the July 22
program, the Refuge purchased 10 new
digital cameras, so the pictures could be
printed .at the headquarters office. At the
end of the day, the participating children
choose which pictures they want printed
and make a "Nature Journal" that
documents their day at the Refuge.
Usually the children are so excited
to see spiders and bugs - things they


would normally be afraid of in everyday
life, Darty said.
The day began at the headquarter-
office butterfly garden and continued
to the bat house, which houses between
40,000-60,000 bats, according to Darty.
The group was then led through the river
trail and the Bottomlands Boardwalk to
the Suwannee River.
The highlight of the day was when
a rattlesnake was spotted under the
boardwalk, she said. The 4-foot snake
was coiled up under the boardwalk, and
since the children were a safe distance
away, they went crazy taking pictures,
she said.
Hannah Brinkman, an 8-year-old
Cedar Key School student, attended last
month's program as well as last week's.
Interested in nature and animals, Hannah
was not afraid to work to get that perfect.
shot.
She said she preferred the digital
cameras to the disposables because the
digital cameras allow them to delete the
pictures they don't want and make room
for the ones they do.
The digital, camera gave the children
so much more ability to take more great
photos, and it also allowed them to adjust
the photos on the computer before they
printed them out, Darty said.
The purpose of the program is to
get children outside and learn about
nature and wildlife while learning about
cameras and documentation at the same
time, she said.
"There's a lot more tp picture taking
that just shooting a frame; try to tell a
story," she said.


Levy FFA students participate in Forestry Training Camp

Submitted by Jennifer Bray . .
Bronson Middle/High School FFA sponsor . .1. ... ___________.......


Two Levy County FFA students had the opportunity
to attend the 76th annual Florida Forestry Training
Camp at O'Leno State Park in High Springs, Fla., July
19 - July 24. Shayne Jenkins attends Chiefland High
School and Lily Blackburn attends Bronson Middle
High School.
While at Forestry camp, approximately 60 FFA
students were grouped into their "forests" and assigned
foresters to be their leaders to go through 24 hours
worth of intense forest instruction during the week at
camp. Students learned and dendrology, map reading,
forest products, forest hydrology, compass/pacing
and area calculation, insects and diseases, equipment
identification, fire suppression, timber cruising, tree
planting, O'Leno State Park History, and careers in
forestry. The various lessons were presented by the
foresters as well as various guest speakers who came
to the camp.
The camp gave the students an opportunity to
sharpen their skills for the upcoming FFA forestry
competition in October. One of the highlights of the
camp is the final forestry exam that tests their skills
from the week. The top 10 students at the camp are
recognized with a Biltmore Stick of their own. Lily
Blackburn scored in the top ten and came home with
a Biltmore stick.

Christmas in July


We're all familiar withtheAmerican
shopping tradition of "Christmas in
July," obviously started years ago by
an ingenious retailer who had such
a fantabulous sale that it truly felt
like Christmas. Many stores actually
decorate and have Christmas items
for sale, oft times for a fraction of the
original cost. My husband works for
a national chain store and he assures
me that their holiday stock has been
on the shelf for weeks now, not to
mention Halloween. And of course,
Thanksgiving. Not. It's skipped over
just like it is in school, Nwhich, by the
way, is the next biggie coming up in
a few short weeks. I'm more focused
on bookbags and band camp than St.
Nick and his bag of goodies.
But if you're in the holiday spirit
and would like to see him now, I know
just the place for you and your small
children or grandchildren: Santa Land,
outside of Gatlinburg. (I'm not going
to say Gatlinburg, Tennessee, because
everyone knows it's in Tennessee;
just like everyone knows that Paris
is in France, but for some reason feel
compelled to say, "Paris, France." Or
better yet, "Las Vegas, Nevada." Duh.
And one more, possibly my all-time
favorite is Cairo, Egypt. Like where
else would it be? Unless you're in
South Georgia, in which case it's


pronounced karo, like the syrup, and
there's no way to confuse it with
somewhere in the Mid-East, since it's
in Southwest Georgia, anyway.)
So. When our girls were ages 2 and
4, we took our first real family vacation
to this family-friendly resort town in
the mountains of you-know-where. I
didn't even get car sick, which is just
a downright miracle seeing how as I
can barely ride to Gainesville without
getting dizzy. But I think that's
something to do with trying to read the
400 digit road names, as mentioned in
a previous story.
On our first full day there, we
traveled a few short miles (thankfully)


to a fairly good imitation of the North
Pole, complete with snow and icicles
everywhere. Beautifully trimmed trees
stood amongst the various kiddie rides,
candy cane houses, gift shops and the
petting zoo, where, if you were lucky,
you might see a real reindeer. We were
not particularly lucky. In every cage,
there was one spot in which the arctic
deer could hide from sight (probably
under an air conditioner), and they
delighted in doing so.,
After successfully pestering all
of the other animals in the zoo, we
decided to check out the scenic river
tour, offered in their prettily painted
paddleboats. My husband, having
grown up mastering the Waccasassa
and other local waterways, was eager
to show off his boating prowess to his
two adoring daughters and wife. Only
problem was, there was some special
trick involved in actually leaving the
dock that only the elves knew, and
they weren't telling said husband,
much to his chagrin, and we spent'a
good 15 minutes shoving off, only to
discover that the water was a grand
total of about 18 inches deep.
Now, the secret to keeping the
pretty paddleboat moving was
perpetual paddling, which was near to
impossible in these dangerously deep'


not happy to be pointing out droll-
looking birds and wildlife, either,
muttering something about Florida and
shotguns. We were vastly entertained,
as was everyone at the marina, also.
We did see Santa, himself, inside
of his own little bungalow, where,
for a nominal fee, you could have
your picture taken with the jolly
saint. If you might have doubts about
his existence, I challenge you to go
there. His "Ho Ho Ho!" quite literally
almost brought the house down, with
no huffin' and puffin', either. I'm a
believer.
We stopped at the purple gift shop
to purchase toy reindeer so we would
always remember those we never saw.
Too late, we realized after returning
home, that we had not included Daddy
Reindeer in our little family, a fact our
youngest lamented for an entire year,
so much so that we returned to Santa
Land the next summer to celebrate
Christmas in July again, this time
leaving with Daddy Reindeer in tow.
Our own Daddy Reindeer was an
extremely good sport to do it all again,
too, but this time we skipped the
promise of a panoramic paddleboat
ride.

Youngster works to raise money for those in need


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Alton Terry was raising money for
the Children's Miracle Network when
he was still in diapers, and he hasn't
quit.
The 9-year-old, who has raised
$16,000 in the past eight years with his
mother Laurie Terry's support, is back
on the fundraising trail again.
"He just goes around and begs," his
mother said proudly.
Alton carried a money jar around
the Bronson Motor Speedway Friday
during the mud racing and mud bogging.
The following night he met stock car
fans at the speedway track. Racing fans
were generous both nights.
When his mother found out he
wasn't saying thank you to every
donor at the mud race, she leaned over
from her post in the concession stand
to gently remind him it was the right
thing to do. He smiled and agreed.
When he wasn't fundraising, Alton
was driving a mud truck himself Friday
night with his dad Lonnie at his side or
playing with other children at the mud
bog facility.
The Children's Miracle Network
is a non-profit organization that raises
funds for 170 children's hospitals,
among them Shands Children's
hospital in Gainesville.
Laurie Terry considers Alton
a miracle in himself. Laurie and
her husband Lonnie had been told
by doctors she would never have
children.
Alton apparently had other ideas.
"When he came along in the 171�
year of our marriage, I knew it was
a blessing and I had to give back,"
Laurie said.
That's when young Alton, still
a baby, began raising funds for the
Children's Miracle Network with his
mother's help.


Alton James Terry is collecting
donations .once again this year
for the Children's Miracle Net-
Laurie said a woman who owns
two Burger Kings in Gainesville gives
a $500 check to Alton's campaign
annually. Tony Weeks' gas station
in Bronson, Barbeque Bill's and
BubbaQue's restaurants are regular
donors. Laurie and Alton place
collection jars in convenience stores
when the owners are willing to accept
then.
The deadline for donations is mid
August.
Alton and Laurie accept cash, but
checks should be made payable to
CMN (Children's Miracle Network).
Write to Alton James Terry, P.O.
Box 611, Bronson, Fla., 32621, or call
352-486-2490 for more information.


Alton also participated in mud races Friday at the Bronson Motor
Speedway.
