Governor approves


nuke site certification


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Florida Gov.- Charlie Crist
and the Cabinet Tuesday
unanimously approved Progress
Energy Florida's site certification
application to build two nuclear
power plant units in south Levy
County.
The vote is the second of three
major approvals needed before
the company can begin building
the nuclear power plant about five
miles north of Inglis off U.S. 19.
In July 2008 the Florida Public
Service Commission approved the
"needs case" for the plant, meaning
the plaht is needed for electric
power generation in Florida. The
last remaining approval needed
is from the Nuclear Regulatory
Commission, which is expected
by early 2012.
Progress Energy Florida owns
about 5,100 acres in southern Levy
County for future construction of
two nuclear reactors. If the plant is
built, it would employ about 800
full-time, high-paying positions.
The company estimates the plant
would generate an additional 1,000
to 2,000 indirect jobs and employ
about 3,000 people at the height of


construction.
Progress Energy filed the
site certification /application
with the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection in June
2008. After review by the agency
and a series of public hearings, an
administrative law judge supported
approval in the spring of 2009.
Earlier this year the company
announced an adjustment to the
construction schedule of the
Levy County plant that shifted
*the timetable for the start of plant
operation from the year. 2016
back 20 months. The company is
continuing to pursue the project.
A new project timeline depends
on negotiations under way with
the engineering, procurement and
construction vendors.,
Despite the current economic
downturn, Progress Energy
Florida's service area remains
one of the fastest growing in
the country, -the company -said.
Over the past three decades, the
average size of a home has grown
by nearly 50 percent and uses 30
percent more electricity. Since the
Crystal River nuclear power plant
came online in the mid-1970s,
the company's customer base has
more than doubled.


Board accepts changes

Assistant Editor

The School Board of Levy County voted unanimously to adopt
new language on three board policies, but not without dissent from
the union first.
The board was voting on policies 5.35, 6.06 and 6.36 during the
Aug. 4 public meeting.
Policy 5.35 dealt with valedictorian and salutatorian candidates
being determined by the Florida Academic Scholars criteria, which
means the valedictorians must have a minimum unweighted grade
point average of 3.7 and the salutatorians must have a minimum
unweighted GPA of 3.5. Weighted GPAs, which give an additional
half of a point for grades earned in Level 3 courses like advanced
placement, dual enrollment or honors, will also now be, taken into
account.
This policy met with barely a word except for the suggestion

County joins regional authority to seek federal broadband funds


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

An effort to expand broadband Internet into Levy
County began last week when the Levy County
Commission voted 4-1 to join the North Florida
Broadband Authority, an organization that plans to tap
into $7.2 billion of federal broadband stimulus funds.
The stimulus funds for broadband are part of
the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the
economic stimulus plan pushed by President Obama
and approved by the U.S. Congress to stimulate the
American economy.
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell cast the
lone vote in opposition. She said forming a regional
government dilutes the powers vested in elected
local government officials to make decisions for their
constituents.
"I think this regional authority takes away a lot of
the"authority of local governments," Bell said.
Commissioner Danny Stevens said he felt the
commission's action would give Levy County the
"ability to access cutting edge technology."
"I think it would be very good for Levy County to
have membership," Stevens said.
Cedar Key City Commissioners expressed similar
feelings during their Aug. 4 meeting. Commissioner
Pat O'Neal said the decision is an easy one to make.
"If we do not do this, we have no seat at the table,"
Board, from Page 1A


O'Neal said. "We either get on board or the train goes
by us."
O'Neal said stimulus money was given out to rural
counties to receive broadband internet, but in order to
use it you have to be part of the broadband authority.
He said the city is under a "real quick deadline" to
apply because he got the information late in July, and
the agreement is due Friday.
O'Neal said "there is no liability to the city," once
they become a part of the authority. The attorney
representing the broadband authority, Christy Carrie,
was present at the meeting and said there would be no
extra fees on a person's phone bill or wireless bill, but
the authority can charge rates for access.
Levy County has broadband Internet services in
some areas. Broadband is high speed Internet that is
carried most effectively through fiber optic cable or
television cable. The format is known as DSL. AT&T
currently provides the service in Levy County.
The stimulus money for broadband is intended to
make broadband accessible to underserved and rural
areas. Levy County is designated by the state as a
county of critical concern economically.
Broadband Internet services already exist in Levy
County in some areas. Fiber optic cable runs through
most of the county's main municipalities along major
roads. Some cable companies also provide broadband
Internet service. It can be received through satellite,
but the service is slower than through underground


fiber optic lines.
The NFBA, as proposed, would cover 14 counties.
Not all the counties have signed on. The group met for
the first time Friday, three days after the Levy County
Commission meeting. NFBA must do a feasibility
study before it can apply for a federal stimulus
grants.
NFBA will have no taxing authority nor will
it have the power of eminent domain, which is the
power to condemn property, according to Crystie
Carey, an attorney for Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson, a
Tallahassee law firm.
Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson is the same. law firm
that helped create the Florida Governmental Utility
Authority (FGUA), a governmental group whose
purpose was to purchase water and sewer utilities.
FGUA bought a number of utilities in Citrus County
but ran into controversy when it attempted to impose
special tax assessments in one subdivision to extend
sewer lines. The Citrus County Commission said it
hadn't been consulted about the assessments. FGUA
relented and allowed the county to hold public hearings
on the assessments, though it always maintained that
it did so voluntarily. FGUA said it was an independent
government entity.
Carey said the NFBA's only power in member
counties will be to impose fees.
Levy County Journal Correspondent Tara
Massagee contributed to this story.


Beth Roach with the Suwannee River Service Unit,
who suggested a clarification in the wording, which
was accepted by the school board.-
Policy 6.06, "Years of Service Defined for
Administrative and Instructional Personnel," states that
personnel will not be given credit for prior experience
for which they are receiving retirement benefits. This
policy is based on Florida Statute 1012.01(4).
Policy 6.36 is based on a new state statute
1012.33 that was passed by the legislature recently.
It states "employees may voluntarily waive teaching
experience for salary purposes."
Cindy Roach, president of the Levy County
Education Association, stated during the meeting that
the members of the union disagree with these new
policies. She said she would like to go on record for
the second time voicing her discontent; the first time
was during the July 7 board meeting when the policies
were first presented.
The position of the LCEA is that these policies are
in direct conflict with the state collective bargaining
law, she said.
The union is fully prepared to take every power we
have to correct this, she said.


Marcia Baughn, a homebound teacher for the
district, also had some questions.
"What is voluntary?" she asked.
"Does it mean if you don't accept this pay, even
if you're the most qualified person, we're going to
give it to someone else? I have a lot of problems with
this."
She said she feels like the board is setting a
precedent and that teachers who retired should not be
penalized by a drop in pay if they choose to return to
teaching.
"I may ask why the state reduced my salary by 2
percent and not reduce any other constitutional officer,"
said Levy County School Board Superintendent Bob
Hastings.
The main issue with the new wording in the policies
is that it goes against the collective bargaining law,
Roach said again.
"Items that deal with salaries, wages and working
conditions must be negotiated at the bargaining
table," she said. "By setting these policies, you're not
following that."
School Board Member Paige Brookins made the
motion to accept all three policy changes, which were


approved unanimously by the board.
In the superintendent's final comments, Hastings
addressed the union's concerns and presented a couple
of his own.
The two board policies that were approved are in
accordance with state statutes, he said.
He said he is saddened that the policies have been
met with such animosity that the union "will litigate it
to the fullest extent."
Fighting this will take money from the general
fund.
These new policies will save $450,000, which will
enable the board to keep 15 teachers employed, he
said. There have been a number of individual teachers
who would like to come back at base pay. It is "a
shame" that the union is trying to put a road block in
those teachers' way.
He said he appreciates the board passing the
policies that will be good for the school system and
help maintain the classrooms and keep them staffed
with teachers.
As far as the union further disputing the policies,
he said, "We will deal with it as we have to deal with
it."

Chiefland, Fowlers Bluff try to untangle funding issue


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The president of the Fowler's Bluff Volunteer Fire
Department board of directors asked Chiefland City
Commissioners Monday for a new contract giving the
department full control of the $38,000 in fire funds
it receives annually from the county commission and
for a partial refund of money he said was confiscated
by the city.
Dr. Bob Mount made his request as part of an
ongoing discussion with the city about how the
Chiefland City Commission should handle the county
fire funding that Fowler's Bluff traditionally turns
over to Chiefland in exchange for the city providing
fire services to the tiny unincorporated community on
the Suwannee River.
Chiefland City Attorney Norm Fugate said the city
has acted legally in spending the Fowlers Bluff fire
funding. He said the city is under no obligation to
refund any money to the community. He said the city
commission would have to make that decision. Fugate
said the contract with the city is a "fee for services"
arrangement that allows the city to spend the money
as it sees fit on fire services.
In a budget workshop Monday, Commissioners
instructed staff to research what it actually costs the
city to provide fire services to Fowler's Bluff. They
want such things as maintenance of vehicles, buildings
and the cost of insurance for the Chiefland department
factored into what it costs to fight fires in Fowler's
Bluff and maintain the community's firehouse and
vehicles.
Mount requested a $22,172 refund of what he
described as "unused" Fowlers Bluff fire funds the city
has placed in its general operating budget for Chiefland


fire department operations. He said the contract, as he
reads it, doesn't allow the city to co-mingle Fowler's
Bluff fire funds with other money in the city's general
operating budget. But he acknowledged there is no
language in the old contract requiring the city to
refund unused money to Fowlers Bluff for use by its
inactive fire department.
Mount said Fowlers Bluff could never restart the
fire department if that became necessary without
the refund from the city. He said it would have little
equipment and no funds for that purpose. But he also
acknowledged it was highly unlikely the department
would ever be resurrected given the aging population
of Fowlers Bluff. There is literally no one to fight fires
in the community.
The interlocal agreement between Chiefland and
Fowlers Bluff is outdated. It calls for Fowlers Bluff to
give Chiefland the $25,000 it receives annually from
the county in four quarterly installments. But Fowlers
Bluff's allocation has increased.to $38,000 annually
over the past few years without the contract ever
being changed to reflect the new numbers. Chiefland
is receiving more Fowler's Bluff fire funding than the
contract calls for, Mount said.
Under the proposed contract, Fowler's Bluff would
receive county funding directly from the county and
pay Chiefland 48 percent of what it receives, or about
$18,000 annually in quarterly installments. Fowler's
Bluff would get the rest.
At the very least Mount wants the city to refund
the difference between the $25,000 and $38,000 in
county fire funding Fowlers Bluff gave the city over
the past two years.
"We, the board of directors of FBVFD feel you
should return the unspent funds received from the
county or at the very least refund to us the unused


NOTICE OF HEARING TO IMPOSE AND
PROVIDE FOR COLLECTION OF

funds in excess of the amount in the contract. This,
according to my calculations, amounts to $22,172,"
Mount said.
Fugate thinks the differences can be worked out
short of a refund. Another option for the city would
be to stop providing fire services to Fowlers Bluff,
but Fire Chief John Ward said that wouldn't work out.
He said the city would be forced to respond to fires in
Fowlers Bluff because the community has no active
fire department, but there would be no contract to get
reimbursed.
Discussions about the funding began when
Chiefland city staff originally recommended using
$103,000 of fire funding that Ward had never spent to
help balance the city budget. It has been a very tight
budget year for the city. Ward wanted to restrict use of
the money for fire department purposes only. He had
recommended giving Fowler's Bluff its $27,000 share
of the money.
City Commissioners on Monday tentatively agreed
to move $50,000 of the money into the Chiefland fire
department budget for capital outjay, which could be
used to buy anything from bunker gear to a fire truck.
But the Fowler's Bluff portion remains unresolved for
now.

Williston pauses each year to remember fallen officer


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Former Williston Cpl. David Moss
had prepared himself for his night shift
in the usual way on July 29, 1988, but
he had no way of knowing it would be
his last.
In the early morning hours, Moss, 31,
was shot in the heart by a hidden gunman
in a back alley behind what is now Pesos
restaurant. Moss fired back, killing his
19-year-old assailant, David Jenkins,
with four shots from his .357 magnum
before falling dead on the ground.
He was found by fellow officer Bruce
Snyder. He had no pulse. Neither did
Jenkins.
Moss has not been forgotten despite
more than two decades.
A graveside memorial service takes
place annually on July 29 to remember
Moss and his contributions as a police
officer. His widow, Lori, who said Moss
had wanted to be a cop for as long as she
knew him, is always part of the service.
"He took his job seriously, but he
didn't take life seriously," she recalled.
"One of his main thrusts was young


people. Some of the young kids got in a
lot of trouble, but he would talk to them
rather than just throw them in jail."
Officer Clay Connelly, who is the
only officer at the Williston Police
Department who served with Moss, said
it's difficult to resurrect anything good
from an incident as tragic as the murder
of a police officer, but he believes Moss,
in his final moments, did something
practical.
He said Moss kept his mind clear
enough in those final moments to fire
back and kill the assailant who had shot
him. Jenkins had a "sizeable criminal
record" from Maryland. The pistol
Jenkins used to kill Moss had been
stolen from a house that was reportedly,
burglarized in Williston.
"If you have to go, the thinking is,
don't leave the problem behind for
someone else," Connelly said.
Moss was alone when he died. It
a hot night and he decided to leave his
bulletproof vest at home. It was a full
moon.
Police say Snyder noticed at about
2:17 a.m'. that continuing calls from the
dispatcher to Moss went unanswered.


He asked for Moss's last position. He
found Moss's patrol car on SW 6th St.
just north of a disabled car. The motor
was running and the door was slightly
ajar. A portable radio was on the seat..
It appeared Moss had left his patrol
car in a hurry or had stepped 'out to
speak to someone on the side of the
road. Snyder sensed that Moss had
planned on not being away from his
car for long, according to a narrative
provided by Williston police.
Snyder climbed a set' of stairs
overlooking an alley nearby and spotted
a faint halo of light in the tall grass and
weeds below. It was Moss's flashlight.
The lens was pointed down, causing it
to emit a small amount of light.
Snyder found Moss face down a
few yards south of his flashlight with
his .357 revolver partially under his
left leg. Jenkins' body was a few yards
east of Moss. One of Jenkins' knees
was caked with mud. Police believe
he had knelt in the damp grass before
firing at Moss.
Williston police have created a
small memorial for Moss in the lobby
of the police station.


City gets 'temporary allowance' to use its burn pit


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection has issued Chiefland a new and more
restrictive temporary permit for its controversial bum
pit at the industrial park, but the permit is good for
only one year and requires the city to find a new site.
Christopher L. Kirts, district Air Program
Administrator for DEP Northeast District, notified
the city of the "temporary allowance for the open
air burning operation" in an Aug. 6 letter to City

Manager Grady Hartzog, who read it at Monday's city
commission meeting.
Among the requirements, the city is to have
someone attending the burning operation and that
person is to have adequate firefighting equipment on
hand at all times. The city can't allow the smoke to
become a problem for neighbors.
S"If the smoke goes in the direction of any neighbor.
we have to shut it down," Hartzog said.
Jimes Beauchamp, the man who criticized the
city for allowing smoke from the burn pit to smother
his home several times a month, had wanted to close

down the pit permanently. He was disappointed the
city received a new permit, even it was for a year.
"I told the city manager I didn't think much of it,"
Beauchamp said. "If they make sure the, city abides
by the restrictions and keep people from all over the
county dumping in it, maybe it will'help a little."
The temporary allowance was announced at
Monday's Chiefland City Commission meeting. City
Manager Grady Hartzog said he had received it that
afternoon. Beauchamp said he wished the city had
invited him to the meeting. He would have responded
to comments from. Eddie Barron, a professional
landscaper and husband of City commissionerr Teresa
Barron, who said the new restrictions will hurt his
business. If he is forced to'haul leaves and limbs to
the Levy County Landfill, he said the tipping fees
and cost of.diesel to travel that far could significantly
increase his costs to his customers.
"I'll just put all the leaves in the parking lot and you
can do it," Barron said as he left the meeting.
Barron complained that Beauchamp had built his
home adjacent to the city's industrial park and is now
complaining about smoke. He said it might be easier to
buy an air treatment system for Beauchamp and split the
costs.
If he had been invited to the commission meeting.
Beauchamp said he would have oflTecd to let the city
bum at the'industrial park pit near his home for one
month, and then turn around anlM ln ci ty bum c\tl to

Sheriff's arrests


Police jail woman on battery, threat charges


5A


A Morriston woman was arrested
Aug. 1 on charges of battering a female
acquaintance and threatening her with
a knife.
Valerie Joleen Hogg, 21, 114 S.E.
30"' St., became enraged when the
victim ordered Hogg's boyfriend to
leave her home. Hogg slapped the
victim several times on the head and
upper body before grabbing a knife and
pointing the sharp end at the victim.
The victim said Hogg took the knife
'and pressed it against her wrist as if
she was going to cut herself. A deputy
observed impressions on Hogg's right
wrist consistent with having a knife
placed against the wrist, an arrest
report said.
Hogg was arrested on charges
of domestic battery and aggravated
domestic assault.
Bond was set at $2,500.
N A Levy County man who allowed
a horse on his property to suffer from
severe neglect was arrested Aug. 5 on
a charge of felony animal cruelty.
Shane Michael Akes, 7050 N.W.
168th Lane, Trenton, was taken into
custody after a deputy found he was the
man living at the property where the
horse was found lying in the backyard
unable to get on its feet.
Deputy Clint Anderson had been
sent to investigate a report of a downed
horse. He said the animal was in poor
health and the backbone and ribs could
be seen through the skin of the horse.
The horse was alive.
Anderson attempted to contact the
owners of the home. No one answered
the door. He made contact with
Morgan Silver of the Horse Protection
Agency of Florida. She was out of
town but offered to contact one of her


veterinarians and sent them to scene.
Dr. Robert Stawicki of Newberry
arrived 45 minutes later and inspected
the horse. He said it was the worst case
of neglect he had ever seen in a horse
case. He said the horse was suffering
from severe neglect. The horse had to
be euthanized.
Anderson found no grass or hay in
the pen that the horse could eat. He
found garbage piled 10-12 feet from
the horse that had been burned in the
pen with the horse, according to an
arrest report.
The deputy found mail coming
to the mailbox was that of Akes. A
neighbor confirmed he lived at 7050
N.W. 168th Lane.

Poetry needs -


to rhyme, f


he chimed


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Obama administration
has put word out that
anyone disseminating
"misinformation" should be promptly
reported. Never thought I would see
that sort of thing in this country in my
lifetime, but change is apparently here.
So I guess I should cool it in my
criticism of the president before I get
hauled in. Maybe I'll just change my
delivery. The Left has always been big-
time proponents of the arts, so here's a
poem:

There's hope for the future,
change on the way,
That's what they said
on inauguration day.
Turns out they were half right,
change has arrived,
Any mention of hope, though,
is just a tad bit contrived.
CNN, NBC got on board early on,
As did newspapers,
and Hollywood's cast of morons.

Then came the spending,
trillions in debt,
We bought Frisbee golf courses,
butterfly parks with that.
The rich can fund it,
Barack said with a smile,
Check that - he actually
read it with a smile.
Harry Reid agreed,
the Las Vegas egghead,
Pelosi did too, there's rumors
she's brain-dead.

Then came the bailouts,
Chrysler and GM,
Too important to lose,
we threw billions at them.
We treated the symptoms
and ignored the cause,
Greedy union bosses
bearing fangs and claws.
Despite the assistance,
companies folded anyway,
Now we own them,
that's the socialism way.

About that point I got a cat
with orange hair,
Not really relevant,
but I thought I'd throw it out there.
Back to the point,
the matter at hand,
Thugs from Club Gitmo
turned loose in the heartland.
They deserve a fair shake,
Barack said with a coo.
Jihad, coming to a town near you.

Need a new judge,
an empathetic voice?
Racist words
from his eventual choice.
Barack heard her speak
and made his own guffaw,
When he chose his old buddy
over the law.
The preacher, the judge,
the president forever,
Birds of a feather,
flock together.
And now its healthcare,
forced down our throats,
The rich can fund it,
Barack said with a boast.
They'll pass a new bill,
without even reading it;
Wait, hold on,
my basset hound just took a poop.
Oh hound dog, sweet hound dog,
big floppy ears,
I'll pay for your healthcare,
throughout the years.
Brand new immigrants,
illegally here,
I'll pay for their healthcare,
throughout the years.
And now they've declared
that free speech is a threat,
Shut your mouth, toe the line,
pay your share of the debt.
Anyone miss George Bush yet?


Whatever you do,
don't read this aloud,
Talk of dissention
is no longer allowed.
Big Brother is listening,
Karl Marx would be proud.

Preservingfarms, vast green areas


would safeguard priceless treasures


Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Levy County is a beautiful county, largely untouched by
modern civilization. That's a compliment.
Farm fields and forests dominate the landscape in most
locations. Large subdivisions have yet to replace farming.
But the day will come when the farms are subdivided.
Houses will take the place of grazing cattle. Most of the
green pastures will vanish.
For many local public officials, the prospect of a highly
developed county is an enticing possibility. They see an
expanded tax base and a larger population. Perhaps more
job opportunities. They see a more urban environment and
more opportunities to earn income.
I personally like the fields. That's just me.
The farms and the gorgeous landscapes can be saved if
anyone cares to go down that road.
I believe that the nuclear power plant proposed by
Progress Energy Florida provides one potential opportunity
to spare much of the county's landscape from mutilation
by bulldozers and road building. The nuclear power plant
would probably provide Levy County with as much tax
revenue at 100 gated golf course subdivisions.
With the additional $50 million in tax revenue from the
plant, the county could safely consider giving the county's
farmers major property tax breaks if they kept their farms in
active agricultural production. From a personal standpoint,
I would prefer to keep the farms in row cropping and
ranching, not dairy farms, unless it was grazing dairies.
Sorry, I don't like the stink from big commercial dairies.
It's not neighbor-friendly. That's just me.
I'm told that 10 to 12 agricultural families own the
biggest parcels of farmland in Levy County. I think that's
generally true. They don't own all of it by any means.
There are many smaller farms as well. I think whatever tax
abatement is proposed, farming would have to be clearly
defined and the amount of tax abatement would have to
be sizeable to induce farmers to keep their land in active
agricultural production. Frankly, my preference would be
to keep the entire county in cattle ranches. I think it's the
most environmentally friendly form of agriculture. You
basically have cattle grazing in fields. I would give no
tax exemptions to feedlots or large commercial dairies, or
any type of commercial or industrial size animal feedlot
operation of any type. That's just me again. Such operations
pollute the air and water.
Can you imagine most of the county remaining in cattle
ranching operations. I think we could save our springs and
aquifer with this arrangement. The springs are part of our
underground aquifer system. If enough land remains largely
in its current state by preserving our farms and green space,
I believe we could protect our drinking water supplies much
better than if the open space is carpeted by subdivisions.
Sprawling residential subdivisions bring more septic tanks,
large central sewer systems, more cars, more runoff and
more contamination from vehicle oil and gas.
Environmental groups are fighting the nuclear power
plant. They see this large plant operating in south Levy
County and storing radioactive nuclear waste on site. They
don't see the potential positive environmental impacts
from the plant. It won't pollute the air, and if the county
was smart enough to use the increased tax base from the
nuke plant to preserve its vast green areas and farms from
development, the environmental benefits would be vast.
Environmentalists would argue that the plant will only
bring more development. They would be correct, but only
if the county was asleep in preserving its green space.
All of these ideas are speculative to be sure. The nuclear
power plant itself would cover about 200 acres of land. The
Progress Energy property around it would largely be kept in
tries, I'm told. Radioactive waste will have to be stored on


site until the U.S. Congress decides to declare a permanent
storage site somewhere out west. Environmental groups
are also opposed to the creation of special storage sites for
nuclear waste. They want to continue to fight nuclear power
plants.
Even if the nuclear power plant is never built, the county
could at least talk about ways to preserve the county's green
space and farms. These green areas are the county's great
treasures, along with the public conservation lands already in
place. The green areas and conservation lands are the reason
the county's water supply is still drinkable.
These are just ideas, folks.
As a reporter, I have been covering meetings. of the
Fanning and Manatee Springs Working Group in Fanning
Springs. The next meeting is Wednesday, Aug. 12, a day
before most people will see this column. The group consists
mostly of state environmental and conservation scientists
and administrators, a smattering of local officials,'a few
environmentalists and a few everyday folks interested in
preserving and protecting Manatee Springs and Fanning
Springs.
At Wednesday's meeting, they were scheduled to discuss
possible scenarios for the springs. Each participant was
asked to bring a worst-case and a best-case scenario. Both
springs are located in northeast Levy County. Chiefland and
Fanning Springs stand squarely on top of both springsheds.
The springsheds are the land areas that drain water into the
springs, mainly through the aquifer.
Both springs have nitrate problems from fertilizers and
septic tanks. The worst nitrate problem is in Fanning Springs,
which is also losing its flow of water. The spring is no longer
a first magnitude spring. Nitrate levels are very high at
Manatee and Fanning Springs. That's because human-related
activities are adding nitrates to the springs from septic tanks,
farm fertilizers and lawn fertilizers.
Additional development, which is likely to come to
the area, will only make it worse. The county commission
has already adopted a springs-protection element in the
comprehensive plan. I'm sure it will provide some protection
to the springs. But if our farms and other green areas are
eventually lost to development, I think the springs will be
greatly degraded, if not lost entirely.
I do believe efforts are being made by farmers to lessen
the amount of nitrates being spread on row crop fields. I
don't have any scientific information to prove how much
of the nitrates spread on fields leach below the root zone
and into the aquifer. I do know that farming practices are
improving. Farmers don't benefit from spreading too much
fertilizer on fields. Fertilizer is very costly. I think it would
benefit everyone in row crop farming if the science of
spreading fertilizer were refined to the point where farmers
could be told precisely howv much fertilizer is needed to feed
the plant without losing anything below the root zone. This
would help the springs and our drinking water supplies. The
springs are a barometer of water quality. The aquifer empties
out through the springs into our rivers and the coastline. Our
residential wells tap into the same aquifer that connects to
the springs.
The problem with all of my ideas is that it takes political
will to get anything done. People have to recognize the
importance of water quality, the importance of preserving
farm fields and green space, and the importance of protecting
our springs. The only way to protect the quality and amount
of water flowing to the springs, and protect our drinking
water supply, is to ensure our green space and farms remain
largely intact.
You say it can't happen?
Let's at least talk about it as a community.- the Levy
County community - and not pretend that the worst can't
happen.
It can happen.
iVe can lose the.uality of life herg,

The County Paper, Est. 1923


The Levy County Journal


I have had about enough ofHBO


By Rick Burnham
Editor


"Click."
That was the sound in my head
Sunday evening as I sat there on my
couch. It was the sound of a remote
control, turning off a TV. Only in this
case, it was the sound of a remote
control turning off a channel.
I was watching Home Box Office,
which has a relatively new series
called True Blood. It's a fictional series
set in a world in which vampires are
real, and have come out of the closet,
per se. Congress has passed a bill to
protect the rights of vampires, and the
show essentially details the interaction
between vampires and humans. You get
the idea.
I began watching True Blood because
of a long-held fascination about the
supernatural. I don't believe in any of it
and never will. It's fiction and nothing
more. It interests me in the same way
professional wrestling might attract a
follower.


The first season of True Blood was
all about the friction between the two
groups, which made for some interesting
plot lines and scenes.
But the second season, the current
one, has introduced a group of
individuals strongly opposed to the
vampires. The Fellowship of the Sun
is a Christian group that wants to
eradicate the vampires because of their
dark nature. That's a fairly easy premise
to understand. Light vs. dark, good vs.
evil.
HBO, of course, depicts the vampires
as the good guys and the Christians
as the bad. That's what happens in
Hollywood - artists attempt to push the
envelope whenever and however they
can, thinking outside the box, turning
long-held beliefs upside down to see
what shakes out. It is one of the main
reasons so many in Tinseltown have
become complete and utter morons.
They no longer know which end is up.
So I understood it when the show
became so sympathetic to the vampires
at the expense of the Christians. That's


just Hollywood being Hollywood.
Until Sunday.
The latest episode ends with a very
large group of vampires, gathered in a
large home, socializing and talking
about things vampires talk about - blood
types, cavity prevention, etc. And then a
representative from the Fellowship of
the Sun walks in and manages to make
his way to the center of the main room.
He announces why he is there, and then
opens his coat to reveal a very large
explosive device strapped to his chest.
And the show ends as he detonates it.
"Boom."
"Click."
It is the height of irresponsibility
for HBO to perpetuate a myth that
a Christian would do such. a thing.
Representatives of other religions
grow suicide bombers. Followers of
other religions chop the heads off of
nonbelievers to make a point. Fanatics of
other religions fly planes into buildings,
killing thousands.
Not Christians. Not the Christians I


All things considered, I am not that
surprised at HBO. They are the home,
after all, of "Real Time with Bill Maher."
Maher, perhaps the king of the morons,
wrote and starred in a 2008 movie called
"Religulous." In the film, Maher travels
the globe satirizing religion, including
Scientology and Islam. But mostly
Christianity. One very well-publicized
scene has Maher debating an actor made
up to be Jesus.
With such individuals as Maher on its
payroll, you could hardly expect HBO
to be the most rational organization on
the planet.
Still, they crossed a line Sunday
evening. There is no telling how many
impressionable youth across the country
saw that scene and said, "Hey, Christians
can be terrorists too."
If HBO is willing to perpetuate such
a myth, there is little I can do from a
small office in Levy County to stop
them. But they won't do it on my dime.
Five minutes before I began this article,
I cancelled HBO, and I won't be back.

Bronson council approves small tax increase


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson Town Council members
tentatively approved a small property
tax increase last week.
The council voted unanimously
to approve a millage rate of 3.44, an
increase over the current rate of 3.20,
one of the lowest in the county.
"We really don't want to tax our
customers any more than we have to,"
said Councilwoman Beatrice Mongo.
If the millage rate wins final approval
and is adopted in late September, it
would generate about $125,000.
Clerk Kelli Brettel said the fiscal
year 2006 audit has not been finalized,
but she said the opinion from auditors
will not be a good one.
When auditors talked in the audit
about fraud and missing funds due to
the former mayor, Brettel said they


suggested the city separate the functions
of her and assistant clerk Susie Robinson.
Brettel said that has already been done.
Robinson handles day to day operations.
That allows Brettel to work on audits.
The town is still three years behind on
audits. Former Clerk Donna Conquest
said the criminal investigations offormer
Mayor Jamie Griffin was one of the
main reasons the city audits were tardy.
The financial records of the city were in
the hands of criminal investigators for
most of the time Conquest worked for
the city. She left last December and was
replaced by Brettel,
Brettel is working with auditors to
get caught up on the audits. She hopes
to complete the process by the end of
the year.
Council members postponed a
decision on whether to hire a planting
consultant to update the city's
comprehensive plan.


Brettel was instructed to find out
whether the planning services must
be bid out competitively or if the
comprehensive planning work can be
done by the Withlacoochee Regional
Planning Council under the town's
existing contract with the organization.
The town is 19 years behind on
updating the-plan.
Bronson Chamber of Commerce
officials received permission from the
council to hold a garage sale on Oct.
17 on Main Avenue and a Pumpkin
Fest on Oct. 31 at the Bronson Sports
Complex.
The council authorized an Aug.29
political rally at the Bronson Sports
Complex for candidates running for
the Bronson Town Council. The rally
is being organized by candidate Jim
Beck. The exact time of the rally has
not been set.
Council members are moving


forward with plans to improve Jim
Milton Cemetery, but it won't be easy.
The process will start with a survey to
determine the location of grave sites.
Mayor Frank Schuler wondered
what the city will do with unmarked
graves.
"How do we know who it is?" he
said.
Brettel suggested leaving a written
note asking residents who know the
location of graves to notify the city.
"We're not going to get everybody,
but it's a start," she said.
"You can't go digging into people.
It's not right," Schuler added.
In a final matter, Council member
Berlon Weeks received recognition for
completing the 2009Advanced Institute
of Elections course for municipal
officials. The Florida League of Cities
and John Scott Daily Florida Institute
of Government sponsored the course.


Williston council denies tax-funded health insurance


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Williston City Council members last week
briefly discussed including themselves in the city's
health insurance program, but City Manager Marcus
Collins said there were no funds in this year's budget to
pay the cost of insuring all six council members.
Council members agreed without a vote to continue
the current unwritten policy that allows council
members to purchase the city's health insurance out
of their own pocket if they wish to do so, but the city
won't foot the bill.
Collins said the cost would be $360 per month for
a council member. He said he had a couple of slots
in the plan that would allow a council member to
take advantage of the insurance. He said a couple of
employees are not on the plan, which leaves a couple
of open slots.
The city managernotedthata lot ofcities provide health
insurance benefits to their council or commissions.
Mayor Gerald Hethcoat said he doesn't need the
insurance, but he said there have been councilmembers
in the past that were on the city health insurance plan.
Council President Debra Jones said they paid to be part
of the plan.
In other business:
The council agreed to send a memo asking the
Levy County Commission to consider designating the
sprawling WillistonAirport property as the official Levy
County Emergency Staging Area in a major natural
disaster. Hethcoat wrote the memo.
The council believes the Williston Airport would
be the ideal location for a Levy County Emergency
Staging Area that would support county wide emergency
operations during major disasters that impact the county.
"In the event of a catastrophic hurricane making
landfall in Levy County, the Williston Airport would be
considered a critical facility in the beginning of recovery
efforts across Levy County," the memo said. "The State
of Florida, Division of Emergency Management and
Federal Emergency Management Agency would be
responding to the immediate needs of the residents of
Levy County after a catastrophic storm event by moving
food, water, roofing tarps and many other essential
supplies into Levy County to their main county-staging
area by way ofa continuous trucking operation."
The memo went on to say the emergency staging
area would be tasked with receiving these supplies,
inventorying them, safely storing them, and redirecting
the supplies out of the points of distribution in each of the
county's municipalities on an around the clock basis.
The council is proposing that Levy County work
jointly with the city in coordinating overall operations at
the staging area. The city and county would coordinate
with the Levy County Emergency Operations Center
on replenishment, personnel and other issues.
The council has requested a meeting in the near future
to discuss the need for an inter-local agreement and a set
of standard operating procedures that would address how
the emergency staging area would be operated.
The council also continued to debate whether it
wants to delve into the business of regulating, licensing
or identifying exotic animals, including snakes that may

be kept in the homes of Williston residents.
Council members discussed the possibility last
week of amending its current animal control ordinance
or adopting something new to require some type of
licensing of the animals.
Council members tossed out a number of ideas, but
tabled the measure for later discussion.


Councilman Art Nussel said the city doesn't need a lot
of rules if the state would include the city when it issues
permits to these animal owners. Councilman Michael
Shoemaker felt the city should license the critters when
the state does.And Councilman Brooks Holloway felt
the citizens should notify the city when they have these
animals.

Volunteer hopefuls sweat through paces in Bronson


-6 \W. Staff Writer


I-- I -------- --
Firefighter volunteer John Shearer of Yankeetown Fire Department
raises his arms to allow his air breathing apparatus to slide down
his back. Shearer was one of several volunteer candidates going
through training in Bronson on Saturday.


Becoming a volunteer firefighter isn't easy anymore.
A person can't walk into a fire station and sign up to join the force anymore.
The state now requires prospective volunteer firefighters to take a 206-hour
course and cap it off by passing a test at the fire-training center in Ocala.
Capt. Jerry Horton of Bronson Fire & Rescue was busy training volunteers
from throughout the region Saturday in a Florida Fire College approved course.
Bronson Town Council members have approved the use of their fire station
and fire equipment for the volunteer firefighter training.
The weather was sweltering hot. Volunteers were wearing full bunker gear for
a portion of the drill. Four volunteers have already left the course for different
reasons.
"These people aren't just signing a paper and driving a big red truck," Horton
said. "They are giving up their time and sweating to death. It's hard to get people
to do it, but it's strongly needed."
The fire departments pay for the training.
Kevin Bourque, 53, and his 18-year-old daughter, Jamie, of Inglis were among
the recruits sweating it out to become volunteer firefighters for the Morriston-
Montbrook Volunteer Fire Department.
"It's something me and my daughter do together. It's really awesome,"
Bourque said.
The day of training began with a 1 Y2 mile run, an exercise routine, ladder lifts
and practicing how to strap on the air-breathing equipment.
Bourque, who owns Bourque's Backhoe Service, said their fire chief, Richard
Bloom; gives them plenty of training every Monday. They were accustomed to
training before they signed up for the formal volunteer firefighter course.
"We really like it. It's a good community service," Bourque said. "Our
instructors are awesome. They really push us."


Williston red light cameras originated in Europe


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


An official with Traffipax said the
technology being used in the company's
red light cameras are a digital version
of cameras first used in Europe as far
back as 1956.
Traffipax, Inc. is the United States
subsidiary of Robot Visual Systems
based in Monheim, Germany. Robot,
a developer of traffic engineering
products, is wholly owned by Jenoptic,
AG, a publicly traded company on
all the German Stock Exchanges,
according to its web site.
In 1999, Traffipax was formed to
serve Robot's United States customers.
Traffipax is headquartered in
Linthicum, Maryland. Robot/Traffipax
employs 250 people with offices"
in Maryland, Ohio, Florida, North
Carolina,' Monheim and Hildesheim,
Germany.
The cameras are used worldwide.
Traffipax operates cameras at .100
locations in the United States, according
to Chris Wagenbach, director of client
services. He said the cameras are not
intended to fool anyone.


"We're not trying to hide. We just
want people to stop on red," he said.
When the cameras in Williston
photograph a violator running a red
light, the image is almost immediately
reproduced in Linthicum, Maryland
and seen on computers by analysts.
The city of Williston has a contract
with the company that lays out exactly
what type of violations the city wants
to cite as a violation. Wagenbach called
it the "business rules." Traffipax
evaluates the photograph and video
and determines whether the violation
is worth pursuing.
"We approve it in our office as what
we believe is a pending violation and
send it to Williston," he said.
Every department has a review
officer. Williston Police Chief Dan
Davis reviews the photos and videos
from Traffipax.
The traffic ticket that results from
the citation is a civil violation. Even
though the driver can't be seen in the
image, the vehicle and its license plate
are clearly visible. Traffipax can call up
the owner's registration information,
name, age, location, etc. It's enough
evidence for Davis to issue a citation.


A pickup truck pulling a personal watercraft approaches the red light
in Williston and passes through it without stopping. The violation is
captured on red light video overhead.


"It's kind of like a parking lot. No,
one knows who parked it there, but the
owner is cited," Wagenbach said.
If the neighbor was driving the car
when the red light was violated, there
can be a transfer of liability.
Wagenbach added that devices
are on the market to defeat red light


cameras. He said those devices won't
work with the Traffipax cameras.
The devices include plastic coverings
mounted over the license plate to
distort the numbers and sprays that
make license plate shiny.
"We have high intensity cameras
that go right through that," he said.

Chiefland football

Indians hope hard work in August

leads to big things in new year
Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Defensive lineman Lewis Fields gets a little relief from the summer sun during an afternoon
practice session Monday.


Brent Slaugnter, Damian Haney and Zavier Macon go through defensive agility drills
Monday.


A strong spring game and a productive summer
workout schedule generated plenty of enthusiasm in
recent months for the Chiefland Indians. But can that
excitement and energy withstand the heat of an early
August sun?
Head Coach Ajay Ulmer and the team's revamped
staff are betting it can.
The Indians came together Monday for their
annual football camp, a three-day event designed
to promote proper technique, build toughness, and
generate camaraderie, Ulmer said.
"We want to establish tempo, and we do a
lot of conditioning," he said. "We like to do our
conditioning through football drills. We don't just
line them up and run them."
If the team is able to install offensive and
defensive schemes, he added, it will be great. If not,
that's okay too.
"Our goal out of this is to get the conditioning
and get the unity and the team bonding part of it
- that is as important as anything," he said Monday.
"If we get our offense and defense in, that is great,
but as long as we are getting technique and bonding
and toughness, the other is not that important. We
are trying to toughen these kids up, and they have
responded great so far."
The Chiefland Quarterback Club footed the bill
for the team meals, including breakfast, lunch and
dinner. The camp concluded with a steak dinner
at Bell's Restaurant, and included the team's
annual walk down Hwy. 19 from the school to the
restaurant.
The 2009 season begins Aug. 28 with the annual
kickoff classic against Suwannee County at Doyle

The Levy Gounty Journal


New fishing license law meets little resistance


A little over a week has passed since
the new shoreline license was enacted
and most people seem to be accepting
and following the law.
The law states that those fishing
from the shore, dock, pier and etc. must
buy a $9 license in order to fish.
If someone has already purchased
the $17 saltwater fishing license, then
they do not need to buy the additional
$9 license because they are covered
through the more expensive one.
According to a press release
from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation's Web site, there are
exemptions for the license. Those 16
and under or over 65 do not need a
license. Active military personnel do
not need a license if they are home on
leave, and those on Medicaid, food
stamps; etc. do not need.a license.
Also if someone is fishing from a
licensed fishing pier, a license is not
necessary, or if they are using a pole
without a "line-retrieval mechanism,"
such as a cane pole.
Wendy Dial, a public relations
associate with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation, said most
people understand what the state is
trying to do with this license. The FWC
press release stated over 7,000 licenses
have been sold so far.


Dial said there have been the typical
complaints with someone saying "I
have been doing this my entire life and
never had to pay," but that has been
about it.
Scott Leffler, of Bronson, brought
his wife and two grandsons out to Cedar
Key to spend the day fishing from the
pier. He said both he and his wife have
saltwater fishing licenses and that he
does not mind the new law, so long
as the revenue is going to something
useful.
He said if they did not already have
fishing licenses, then "we would pay
the money ($9) to fish," that's better
than paying $30 for saltwater or both."
Dial said the law was enacted
because of dwindling fishing resources
and in response to the federal license
that will take effect in 2011.
She said the revenue from the
law will go to resource management,
research and management of laws. She
said they will be monitoring what fish
are being taken and when, and-will be
putting money back into the fisheries.
"(We are) making sure there are
fish to catch now and tomorrow," she
said.
Dial said that in 2011 everyone in
the nation will have to have a license
to fish. She said that the state license

during the Clamerica celebration last year. The new law requires a
license to fish off a shore, dock and pier. (Stock photo by Terry Witt)


will be supreme to the federal license
as long as you are fishing in Florida.
If you go out of state, you will need
to buy that state's license, if they have
one, or buy the federal license.
As far as those people coming to
Florida on vacation who decide to fish,
Dial said they will have to purchase a
short-term fishing license. She said the
license can cost between $17 and $47,


plus any other fees that may apply.
The short-term license also applies
to those people who leave their home
state and reside in Florida for any
amount of time.
Dial said that in order to receive
the license for $9 and not have. to pay
any fees, see your local tax collectors
office. Retailers and other places have
to add other charges onto the $9.

BREEDING THE DESIRE TO WIN


The gentle lapping of the waves against our bow
seemed to arouse the sleepy dawn. Soon little colorful
song birds began to rustle about, calling excitedly
from the brush tops along the grassy banks. The cares
and hustle of the far-off big ......... -...
city seemed to slip effortlessly
from my shoulders as I
breathed deeply of the tall pines
that .etched the magnificent
shoreline. My thoughts were
swaying in harmony with the
rhythms of the earth. This was
the day that the Lord had made.
My soul was at ease.
Then, without warning, a
loud slap echoed across the
water. The boat heaved. "Get
the net!" my buddy Derek
called, his straining fishing rod
held high.
Another bass had attacked
his spinner bait. I gritted my , _
teeth and reluctantly tossed But Any
the net, then quickly spun back D
around to make another angry with c
cast.
I'd been gracious when
he'd caught the first fish, but now, as he reeled in the
second, I could only force a smile. There'd be no more
"Mister Nice Guy." Not in my boat. Game on! All that
harmony stuff is for the birds.
Immediately I began to work the trolling'motor
so I could box Derek out and get to the best holes
first. When he got hung up, I kept on fishing like I
didn't notice. When he missed a strike, I threw in on
top of him to catch his leftovers. I gave him the full
treatment.
Derek was no stranger to such tantrums of


testosterone. He stepped up to throw a counter punch
by chiding, "How does it feel to be getting whooped
in your own boat?"
"Little mind games won't work on me," I grumbled.
My next cast sailed high up
. into the bushes.
.j ' I just can't help myself.
The drive to win was bred
into me. For example, take
the day I walked out of the
. dove fields as a kid-boasting
two more birds than my dad.
I was grinning from ear to ear.
SAs we hopped in the truck to
in leave, three birds trailed over
the tree line as if on cue. Dad
e . j jumped back out and dropped
'em all.
Mom's no pushover either.
She attempts to memorize the
whole Scrabble dictionary
before I,come over to play.

'VV ay" , However, these days there
Uiy Slhefrlf' ld seems to be a lot of passive
teaching out there on the
subject of winning, and while
I'll admit, most of it was probably written because of
knuckleheads like me, I still have a hard time believing
that having a desire to be victorious and to overcome
is.a bad thing. I mean, isn't God Himself a champion
and a conqueror? (
Exodus 15:3 NIV)
Weren't we made in His image? Weren't ,we
commanded to subdue and have dominion? It only
stands to reason that deep down each of us would
have a penchant for winning.
Did you know this very nation was birthed out of


a fight? Yes, one to overcome religious oppression.
Our forefathers challenged the unknown seas and the
muskets of the red coats in their struggle to forge this
great nation they hoped would remain under God.
Naturally, dark forces have sought to stamp out our
freedom at every turn, but God has always raised up
brave men and women to conquer the lies, the hatred,
and all of evil's aggression. They're still doing it
today.
Of course, meekness and humility must always
play an important role. in our lives if we are to.
properly harness these passions for God's purposes.
Recognizing the real enemy can be a bonus too. (Note
to self: Mine is not Derek!)
The Lord Jesus not only showed us our enemy,
but made a show out of him! (Having disarmed
principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle.
of them, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15
NKJ). Our real foe is the devil apd his whole crew.
As Christians, our job is to enforce Jesus' victory
on this earth and to spread His Good News -until He
returns. When He does, I pity the fools who have
decided to ride against Him. That's a. day the Lord
will be packing a sword. See Revelations 19:11-16.
But anyway- Derek had a 10-to-nine lead when
the dark clouds set in. I offered the use of my spare
rain suit; but-he declined. (He might've been a little
irritated with me by then.) As he, graciously grabbed
a paddle to work us back toward the boat ramp,
the bottom fell out and the poor fellow got plumb
drenched. I don't reckon that made him half as mad as
me fishing the whole way back and catching that last
bass at the dock.

Hard to believe: Hot moves


Hard to believe, but we arrived here
from Georgia one year ago this past
weekend. We are slowly adjusting to
the cooler weather and the every-day-
without-fail showers.'
Cooler? Yes, it's true! We left 109
degree heat, happily, I might add, to
come to your 92 or so highs. Which
brings me to that fateful day of travel
that I will have burned into my brain
forever. (A little drama never hurt
anyone.)
We had two U-Hauls, one pick-up
with duck boat attached, and the little
blue Toyota, which is a five-speed.
(Oldest daughter has since destroyed
Old Blue.) My brother-in-law and
nephew were in one U-Haul, my
husband and our youngest daughter
in the other one (with Lab puppy and
black cat), my father-in-law was in the
pick-up with said boat, and our oldest
and myself (along with Snoopy and
orange cat) were in the Toyota.
We were so incredibly loaded that
you were truly risking life and limb if
you dared open a door, not to mention
that an animal might escape. So, at
about 10 a.m., we were off.
A salient fact to mention at this
point is that the U-Hauls were new and


the Toyota had not had that distinction
in almost 20 years. Sometime during
those 20 years, the AC decided to
retire, much to the chagrin of myself,
daughter, Snoopy and the cat.
With the exception of Snoopy, we
were all in the front seat, me having
insisted that the cat travel with his
leash wrapped.around our daughter's
arm because you never know what a
cat is going to do. I learned that truism
the first week we had the black cat.
Having always been a dog person,
I was not used to minding my own
business and all of a sudden being
clawed and bitten for no good reason.
I have, of course, learned that such
is the wonderful nature of the feline
creature; they are not required to have
a reason for anything they do - they
are cats.
After about 15 minutes on the road,
my eyes began to water, which made
me yawn, or is that vice-versa? We had
been up 'til the wee hours cleaning,
finishing packing, trying to find
something to wear (did I mention'that
my traveling clothes were accidentally
packed in one of the trucks) and making
sure nothing was left behind.
Phe "we" would be me and my


husband, the in-laws staying at a motel,
the girls being at a friend's house on
real beds with clothes and without the
four beasts - I mean pets. We were on
a mattress on the floor with all of the
fur people.
We didn't do such a hot job on the
making sure nothing gets left behind
part, either. That morning, friends
double-checked the kitchen and found
numerous items still in the cabinets
and drawers, including our everyday
silverware. Thank God they found
it; otherwise we'd probably be in jail
right now. They would have mailed it,
the postal people would have seen the
knives, gone postal and labeled us as
terrorists, etc., etc. But, I digress.
Our daughter had also been up 'til
the wee hours talking with her friend
and since she did not have to drive, she
decided that she would get in a little
snooze time. I asked her to please
find me something to listen to on the
radio to help keep me awake, but she
promptly refused, saying that then she
would be kept awake.
Pointing out to her that keeping me
awake was more important than her
nap was useless, as any of you with
teenagers will under nd. A couple*.


of hours into the trip, she awakened to
find me barely awake and going blind
from all of the tears in my eyes. She
kind of panicked and called her father
to tell him that we were going to wreck
because Mother was blind and asleep
at the wheel. She did not take any more
naps after that.
It was at this point that she informed
me that it was the tepid air blowing in
my eyes that was making me cry, and
that she had known this fact all along,
and couldn't believe that I, the stupid
mother, didn't know it, also.
We finally arrived about 7 and I
could barely peel myself from the car,
my husband's clothes being pretty
much stuck to me and the seat. It was
then that I saw our youngest daughter
wearing a sweater and holding a
blanket, she having just stepped down
from the new U-Haul in which she had
made the trip, it very much equipped
with an AC that was not in retirement.
We were told later that she had wanted
to call us and ask us if we had an extra
blanket she could borrow, but her.father
wisely nixed that idea.

Playr hold first annual fundraiser a-uction


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

About 50 people came out in support
of the Suwannee Valley Players' First
Annual Auction held Saturday night at
the Chief Theatre in Chiefland.
.The auction, which raised about
$2,300, exceeded the Players' goal of
$2,000.
It was the first of many fundraisers
in an attempt to raise $20,000 for the
"Chief Theatre Beautification Project."
The project's overall goal is to improve
the exterior of the Players' theater on
Park Avenue, where all productions
and rehearsals are held.
Linda Hagan, Players' secretary
and chairperson of the fundraising
committee, said there are several tasks
that need to be completed at the theatre,
including replacing the exterior doors,
painting the exterior of the building,
installing energy-efficient windows,
installing new awnings, and sprucing
up the landscaping.
Players' President Susan Lastra
said when they were walking to area
businesses asking for donations for the
auction, many people said they thought
the old building was abandoned.
"We have been talking about the


doors, the railing, and the paint for
several years, and the windows have
leaked as long as I've been a member,"
she said. "I am so excited that we are
finally beginning to raise the necessary
money to make the dream a reality."
"We want the theatre to stand out
and be something the community can
be proud of. It's an ugly building,"
Hagan said.
The Players auctioned off an
assortment of new and used items, as
well as donations from area businesses,
including gift baskets and gift
certificates.
"I was so worried that we would
not get enough donations, but the
community has really come out and
supported us," said Players' President
Susan Lastra. "The businesses really
supported us."
There was a variety of people at
the auction, Hagan said. One lady said
she just needed to get out of the house
and ended up having a great time and
buying a large bookcase for just $5 or
$10.
There was a Creative Memories kit
full of new scrapbooking items that was
donated with an estimated $250 value
and sold for $100, she said. Another
good buy was a new chain still in the

box with a $150 retail cost that sold for
$80.
The auction was great, one-of-a-
kind entertainment and everyone had a
blast, she said. The group thinks it will
become an annual event, and there will
definitely be more fundraisers this year
to get to the goal of $20,000.
Some other fundraiser ideas they're
considering are a "Golden Globes"
type award banquet and an art show for


local artists.
"This will be a year-long process
because of the economy," Hagan said.
"We do have to rely on community
support because we are a community
theatre."
"I want the Chief Theatre to be
a landmark for the Tri-County area
- everyone should know we have a
theater here and be proud of it," Lastra
said.

Bronson native blasts off in high speed racer


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Josh Smith impressed the crowd at the
Bronson Motor Speedway mud truck races
Friday when he roared down the 200-foot track
in 2.56 seconds in his Black Magic truck.
"That was a real good time," he said later.
More than 400 people attended the mud truck
races and mud bogging competition.
Smith, 20, a Bronson native, drives the 1500
horsepower Pro Stock Outlaw truck in mud
racing and sand drags all over the Southeast.
He wasn't competing in the local mud truck
races at the speedway. It was a practice run.
Everyone knew he had the fastest truck.
Smith wouldn't disclose the cubic inches of
the engine.
"It's a lot," he said with a grin.
The front wheels of the drag racer never
touched the ground once he was in motion. The
modified Ford Ranger truck has a wheelie bar
in the back to prevent the vehicle from flipping
over backwards.
"We want the front tires off the ground. You
just pray you go straight," Smith said.
The truck is designed with a push button
release on the throttle. Johnson revs the engine
to an ear-rattling decibel. When he releases the
button, the wheels spin at a high rate of speed
and he flies down the track.
"It's intense," he said.
Smith said he reached 80-90 mph on the 200-
foot track.
In a race the week before his appearance
at the speedway, the truck went vertical when
Smith released the trip button.
The motor was built by Engine Systems and
the body fabricated by AJS Fabrications.
Smith can't give up his real job in the
construction business to race the truck. He
works for Steve Smith Construction, his dad's
company, which is also his main sponsor. The
circuit doesn't pay well enough to make his
living racing.
Smith is hopeful speedway owner Tony
Parker can work the bugs out in his track. When
he does, Smith said there are at least six other
racers like him in Florida who might come to
Bronson.

Local Race Winners

Ocala's Bert Butcher was the fastest of the
local racers competing on the mud track. His
best times were 3.768 seconds in the $10 class
and 3.775 seconds in the $20 class. He shot
down the track like a streak. Butcher also had
the farthest pull in the bounty hole, a 300-foot
long trench that stopped most of the big mud
bogging trucks after about 50 yards.
The racers were competing in bracket
competition. They raced more than once and
tried to run similar times. The best times in the
$10 class belonged to first place winner Jason
Lampert. His two attempts were within 0.004 of
a second apart. C.J. Zimoski of Williston won
first in the $20 class. His times were 0.032 of a
second apart.
In the kids' class, Bronson's Ashley
Newsome, 8, won first place for the second
consecutive week. Her two runs were 0.075 of a
second apart. The fast run of the night in the kids
division was by Steven Warren with 5.501.
Ashley's best friend, Sarah Conquest, 10,
also of Bronson, had fast and slower times.
The difference was 4.398 seconds, giving her
a last place finish. Sarah dominated the early
competition of the kids' racing this season.
Butcher, a transmission mechanic for
Turner's Transmission in Ocala, also won the
side-by-side race at the end of the night.
Butcher's truck was powered by a 650
horsepower engine. He used the same type
of trip button as Smith. He brings the engine
RPMs up to a very high level. The wheels spin
furiously.
"It's gone," he said. "You want as much
wheel speed as possible."
He says he has a buddy whose drag racer can
go across water.
Butcher said he has been playing in the mud
since he was 16 years old.
"I got into drag racing and switched to mud
racing and never stopped," he said.
He has also raced at the Hitching Post, which
has a track of 175-180 feet, but lacks the shut
down area that Bronson Motor Speedway has.
He has also done side-by-side racing in Orton,
Fla.
Butcher said mud racing is "pretty safe" for


the drivers.
The principles involved in mud racing are
similar to drag racing.
"You want the front end to pick up and the
,back end to push you," he said.


Josh Smith shows off his 1500 horsepower Black Magic car. He drove the 200-foot-long mud
track at Bronson Motor Speedway in 2.53 seconds. The racing tires had been pulled off and
regular street tires installed for transport home. The racing tire is seen on the outside.

Bert Butcher had the farthest pull in the bounty Jason Lambert ends his run in the bounty hole
hole. He carried three passengers with him. when'his Jeep is unable to go farther.


Larry Nettles and a passenger bog down with The Budweiser Buggy. The pull had been the lon-
gest to that point.
