AVeterans Day Salute


Chiefland's Byrd Griffin beat the odds


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Byrd Griffin never thought he would survive
World War II. He was a turret gunner in a B-
24 bomber. He flew 28 flights over Germany
at the height of the war in 1944. The odds of
being killed were extremely high. His aircraft
bombed German military and industrial
targets.
Hundreds of young Americans in the Eighth
Air Force were dying every week in bombing
missions over Germany. Griffin prayed the end
would come quickly if he was next.
"You get to the point where you look
death in the face every day. It's so traumatic.
You think to yourself if I get it today, let it be
quick."
Griffin, 85, a lifelong Chiefland resident,
earned the Distinguished Flying Cross along
with the other men in his crew. Many of the
missions were aboard the Gator, the nickname
they assigned to their B-24 bomber. His
29th and 30th missions were flown to destroy
military installations in Normandy, France
in preparation for the June 6, 1944 D-Day


invasion.
He is quick to point out he is not a hero.
He said the late Arthur Langston of Chiefland,
a good friend and winner of the Silver Star
for bravery in World War II, was a true
hero. Langston was wounded, in action. He
doesn't place himself in the same category as
Langston.
"I don't feel I'm no hero," Griffin said. "I
just did what I had to do, and the good Lord
took care of me."
He retains vivid memories of his combat
missions. He sat in a small plexiglass bubble
atop the B-24. His job was to spot enemy
aircraft and shoot at the Geiman fighters if
they dove at his aircraft. He would notify his
pilot of enemy fighter positions. Griffin was at
the controls of two 50 mm machine guns.
The pilot and Griffin were both from
Florida. That was why their bomber was
named Gator. By some miracle, the entire
crew survived the war. They never aborted a
mission. Often they would fly back to base
with the airplane low on fuel and full of bullet
holes. They made emergency landings at allied

Fire chief fired

Chiefland commissioners

will not renew contract


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland Fire Chief John
Ward was fired Monday night
in a stormy contract evaluation
session.
The commission voted 4-1
to terminate the 34-year-old fire
chief after he turned down an
offerto keep his job atthe current
pay grade and with the same
duties and told commissioners
his attitude toward them would
not change.
Several commissioners felt
he had been disrespectful to
the board and had continued to
be verbally aggressive. They
said the same bad attitude
had been reported to them by
employees in City Hall and in
the community.
Ward, who denied having
a bad attitude, had filled out a
self-evaluation form and given
himself all 5s, a perfect score.
Commissioners had filled
out their evaluations. Ward's
composite score was 3.5, a
good score. But they didn't like
his attitude.
"You got an attitude, son,"
said Commissioner Sammy
Cason. "When you put all 5s
(on the self-evaluation) it says
you see nothing wrong. What
about your trip to City Hall and
you showed out and lost your
temper."
Ward called Cason's
accusation "a bald-faced lie."
He denied losing his temper.
Pomeroy gave Ward
the lowest score of all the
commissioners. He said
Ward's performance as fire
chief had changed since his
last evaluation and he needed
to make improvements. Ward
peppered the mayor with
questions about the evaluation
and accused Pomeroy of having
a bias against him.
He said Pomeroy's


evaluation was filled with
negative comments about him
and said nothing about the
improvements he had made in
the department.
"That's the basis of the
malice and hostility, the way
this was done," Ward said.
The mayor offered to keep
Ward as fire chief and said he
was willing to give some of
Ward's . extra duties, like fire
inspections, to someone else.
But when Ward said his attitude
wouldn't change, Pomeroy
voted with the majority to
terminate Ward.
"I don't see any remorse
or regret. I don't see anything
changing," Pomeroy said.
Ward saw himself as a good
fire chief. Commissioners
agreed he had done a good
job running the department
overall.
"My fire department runs
like a well-oiled machine.
If not for subpar equipment
(trucks) there would never be
any problems," he wrote.
Ward wanted the commission
to raise his pay from $42,700 to
$60,000. His self-evaluation
said he could handle any issue
including those involving the
public.
"I am able to handle any and
all public issues with the fire
department," he wrote. "Most
public discontent has arose
from issues where a citizen
wanted to bend a rule or a law
in their favor."

Commissioner Teresa
Barron, the city's fire
commissioner, made the first
motion of the night to keep
Ward as fire chief with the same
pay and duties. Ward declined
the offer, saying he wanted to
negotiate the contract. He felt
he was worth more than the

Cedar Key man arrested Local author produces


S9 1 a for murder, kidnapping Chiefland picture book
M-lr Tarmih4


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


A two'week marriage ended in murder and a six-hour
negotiation with the Levy County Sheriff's Office last week.
Charles Edwin Duke, 23, of 5650 S.W. 102"d Court, Cedar Key,
was arrested in the early hours of Nov. 5 after fatally shooting his
wife, Felicia Duke, 22, during an argument.
At 8:37 p.m. Nov. 4, Felicia Duke's sister Crystal Fine called
the Levy County Sheriff's Office after she received a text from
Charles Duke's roommate Justin White stating that someone was
dead, but she didn't know where White was.
White was at the home sleeping during the argument, said
Capt. Evan Sullivan. White was awoken by the gunshot that
killed Felicia Duke.
Duke then kidnapped White at gunpoint, Sullivan said. While
they were driving, White sent the text message to Fine.
While the deputies were searching White's property near
Carter's Store on CR 345, Duke called the Sheriff's Office and
admitted he had killed his wife.
The Sheriff's Office press release stated that Duke said her
body could be found at Peters' hunting camp in Rosewood and
that he had White hostage at gunpoint at the power lines, a well-

A Levy County author has
brought Chiefland's history
to life in a book depicting the
city and surrounding area as it
was in an earlier age.
The book, "Images of
America - Levy County,"
written by Carolyn Cohens,
looks at Chiefland area
landmarks, small towns and
communities and the people
who lived and worked there
,through photographs supplied
to her by local families.
Captions under the photos
provide a brief historical
explanation of the photos.
The first photograph in
the book shows Chiefland
cattleman Rollin Hudson in
a horse drawn buggy with
another man. Hudson was
born Sept.5, 19'0. He lived
r-


in the small settlement of New
Town about 10 miles east of
Chiefland. He was the father of
Earl Hudson, who also owned
a store in Chiefland, according
to the book.

Williston Students of the Month were
recognized last Tuesday by Mayor Gerald
Hethcoat and the city council.

forward to following the ABC's of our classroom
and our school. He is also an amazing student in
the classroom. He always tries his best and his
grades reflect his effort within the classroom
walls. We are so excited about spending this first
grade year with Adam. He is truly a wonderful
student!
Mariah Weldon, 5th grade student at Williston
Elementary School and daughter of Doreen
Weldon, was selected by her teacher for several
reasons. She is a conscientious, hard working
student. She has proven herself to be trustworthy.
Most important, she is concerned about what she
contributes to the class by way of attitude. She
always has a kind word for any student in class
and her positive attitude contributes greatly to the
overall atmosphere. I am happy that she is part of
our class this year.
Blake King, a 71' grader at Williston Middle


School and son of Jamie and Mandy King, was
selected by the 7t' grade team, who said he
displays many of the characteristics teachers like
to see in a student. He works hard and checks up
on his own progress by using the Homework Site.
His work is well done and neat. He participates
well in class and shows that he is interested in
what is being taught. He also shows that he is well
rounded by participating in sports and in FFA.
Pete Dola, a senior at Williston High School
and son of Frank and Jennifer Dola, was selected
for recognition by Principal John Lott. Pete
has many of the characteristics that make him
the perfect candidate for student of the month.
Carrying a rigorous academic schedule, he
maintains a cumulative grade point average of
3.5. Pete is president of the Senior FFA and very
involved with that organization. He just returned
from participating in the Meats Evaluation Team
that competed at the national level in Indianapolis.
Pete works diligently within the school and is well
thought of by both his peers and staff at Williston
High School. He has demonstrated to everyone
that he is a responsible and mature young man.
We are extremely proud to have Pete recognized
as student of the month and feel that he is an asset
to our school and community.

Tovine surprised his staff and celebrated
Veterans Day a little early last week.
Tovine called up five members of
his staff to be recognized for their or a
family member's service in the Armed
Forces, before the Nov. 4 staff meeting.
He also presented them with a framed
poem and thank you.
"We realize your service helped
make a difference in the history of
our country," the thank you read. "We
realize the experience you faced during
your military service became a vital
part of who you are as a leader. Daily,
you show us the values and principles
essential in those who are true patriots
and caring citizens. We are thankful for
your leadership."
Those recognized were: Janelle
Alexander on behalf of her son Phillip
Alexander, who is currently on active
duty in the US Navy AD E-2, and her
father William Smith, who. served 20
years as a US Army Aviator in the 1st
Calvary 7717t E-6; Susan Dupont,
who served for 11 years as a 91 Alpha


Field M1eic. Alice Graham on behalf
of her son Stephen Graham, who is
currently serving in Afghanistan in the
US Army 82nd Airborne E-4, and her
father David Graham, who is a retired
US Army Master Sergeant; Sherry
Hallman, who served four years in the
Army E-3, and whose'son Shane Poole
is currently serving five years as a US
Army Sergeant and received a Medal

Tovine said he wanted to catch his
staff off guard and say thank in front of
everyone to those who have served or
have family who served.
"I appreciate each and every one, I
appreciate the families and God bless
you," he said.
Afterward, he said: "When people
think of Veterans Day, it seems like a
distant meaning. I just wanted to bring
it home."


Chiefland High School staff members were honored Nov. 4 before
the school staff meeting for their service or the service of a family
member in the United States Armed Forces. From left to right: Susan

County expands talks on water to include all municipalities


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Discussions by the Levy County
Commission in recent weeks about
the forming of a Levy County Water
Authority were largely about how to
protect the quality and quantity of the
county's waters as well as who has a
right to take the water and use it.
The formation of the Nature
Coast Regional Water Authority
sparked Levy County's interest
when NCRWA expressed an interest
in sinking a well on the Drummond
Property just north of Chiefland and
potentially piping the water to cities
in Gilchrist and Dixie counties as
part of its tri-county water system.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District is investigating
well sites for NCRWA and has not
decided where the authority will draw
its drinking water. Chairman Randy
Durden said the authority has not
requested a lease on the Drummond
Property. He said the water.district
needs to finish its well-field study
before any decisions can be made on
the property.
Chiefland is opposed to NCRWA
sinking a well on the Drummond
Property because it was once
designated as a Chiefland wellhead


protection 'area by the water
district.. The city is also opposed
to piping the water from the site to
neighboring counties. The Chiefland
City Commission sent a letter to
the county commission offering to
participate in the formation of a Levy
County Water Authority.
Levy County commissioners are
taking a cautious approach to the
issue of forming a water authority.
They agreed last week to send
a letter to the county's eight cities
asking whether they might have an
interest in forming a Levy County
Water Authority. The county doesn't
know where any city except Fanning
Springs stands on water issues.
Fanning Springs is a member of
NCRWA.
The draft letter from County
Commission Chairwoman Nancy
Bell says the board is discussing
many issues related to water
resources and intends to look at
alternatives and possible options to
ensure protection of the county and
area's water resources.
"Those options include investigating
governmental authorities, either new
or existing, and whether joining or
forming such an authority might
provide benefits to Levy County, to
the municipalities within the county,


and most important to citizens
throughout the county," the letter
said.
The letter, which will be brought
back to the county commission
for approval on Tuesday, said the
commission does not wish to limit
any investigation to the use of
governmental authorities. The letter
extends an invitation to the cities and
their governing bodies to participate
in the deliberations "and provide any
thoughts, positions or options you,
your staff, and your governing body
may have on these issues."
Municipal officials are encouraged
in the letter to provide written
comments or information on subjects
or issues they would like to discuss.
-The officials were also informed that
the Levy County Commission intends
to sponsor a workshop in the future
with various local governments
throughout the county to. discuss
issues and share thoughts and ideas
in an open forum.
The letter is the first attempt by
the county commission to formally
reach out to cities and invite them
to participate in discussions about
water issues and water authorities.
The NCRWA sent out letters to all
the cities asking them for input and
inviting them to an Oct. 21 meeting


of its board in Fanning Springs.
NCRWA sent the letter at the request
of the Levy County Commission.
Durden appeared at the Levy County
Commission meeting and invited the
county to join NCRWA. The county
declined.
The only city' that sent a
representative to the Oct. 21 NCRWA
meeting was Chiefland. Durden said
there appeared to be no interest among
the cities in joining the authority.
Bell and Commissioner Danny
Stevens were prepared at the county
commission meeting two weeks
ago to begin discussions about
forming a Levy County Water
Authority, but Commissioners Lilly
Rooks and Marsha Drew wanted
more information first. Drew is
interested in statewide water issues.
Commissioner Chad Johnson was
absent.
Stevens withdrew his motion
to start the process of forming a
county water authority. His revised
motion instructed County Attorney
Anne Brown to write a letter to the
county's eight cities asking for their
input on the issues related to forming
a water authority. Brown wrote the
letter. Bell's name is signed at the
bottom because the letter will go
out under her name on behalf of the


Williston council grapples over surprise millage raise


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston City Council members were surprised
recently when they learned the city's finance director
had mistakenly raised the property tax millage rate.
The increase in millage was done without council.
approval and without public hearings, but it was legal
under Florida law, according to City Attorney Norm
Fugate.
Finance Director Mark Schiefer accepted
responsibility for the error. He said neither the city
manager nor the city council had anything to do with
the higher millage. Schiefer said he should have
blanked out a line on the form he sent to the property
appraiser's office, but he failed to do that.
"It was nothing intentional," he said.
The increase in millage added $19.45 to the tax
bill of a $100,000 home after exemptions.
City Manager Marcus Collins said he believes the
city will make an attempt to remedy the problem. Most
likely individual taxpayer bills would be evaluated
and the taxpayer given some type of credit.
"I think there will be procedures to correct it," he
said.
The origin of the problem began in the property
appraiser's office with the tax bill of Monterey Boats,
a firm operating at the Williston Airport. Monterey
Boats had been given tax exemptions by the city
and county as an inducement to move to the airport.
The county's 9-year exemption expired in 2009. The
city's 10-year exemption remains in effect.
The appraiser's office knew the county's property
tax exemptions had expired, and was aware the city's


exemption was still in effect, but the appraiser's
computer eliminated both exemptions, according to
Property Appraiser Osborne Barker. The result was
a $3.5 million error in value of the city's tax roll.
The city lost about $20,000 in tax revenue when the
mistake was discovered after the city adopted its
2009-10 budget.
The appraiser's office had notified the city in July
that the 2009 city tax roll was valued at $110,145,399.
After the city adopted its budget, the appraiser's office
told the city that the value of the roll had dropped
to $106,594,871 because Monterey Boats still had a
city property tax exemption.
"We had an error. It was a computer error," said
Property Appraiser Osborne Barker. "We knew
the county exemption had expired, and the city's
exemption hadn't expired, but the computer didn't
catch it."
The value of the city tax roll dropped $3,550,528
after the error, or 3.2 percent. Schiefer said state
law allows the city to administratively increase the
property tax rate if the drop in value is more than
1 percent after the city has already adopted its final
budget, provided the millage increase is "revenue
neutral."
Schiefer said the form he sent to the appraiser's
office raised the city millage rate from 5.9025, the
rate the city council approved in September, to 6.09
mills. The line on the form raising the millage should
have been blanked out, but it wasn't.
The increased millage raised $19,908.80 for the
city, roughly the same amount lost as a result of the
snafu with the tax exemption for Monterey Boats.
City Councilman Mark Nussel was surprised city


staff could raise the millage rate approved by the
council without a.public hearing. He was the first to
mention the issue at the end of last week's council
meeting.
"I think it's a waste of time to talk and discuss this
(the budget) and then down the road you do what you
want," Nussel said.
Councilman Brooks Holloway said he wished
"there was some way to do some restitution to
compensate."
"I'm like everyone else. 1 hate that it happened,"
Holloway said.
Fugate said state law allows city staff to raise.
the millage if the property values drop more than 1
percent after the city's budget is final.
"Is is legal? My answer is ves," he said.

Murder, from Page 1A


known mudbogging area in Bronson. The report also
stated that Duke said he would not be taken alive.
Law enforcement found the body of Felicia Duke
at the home with a gunshot wound to the head.
Between 20 and 25 law enforcement officers from
the Sheriffs Office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission were on the scene negotiating with Duke
via cell phone for a little over six hours, Sullivan said.
Sheriff Johnny Smith asked Duke to release White,
but according to the report, Duke was "extremely
adamant that if law enforcement attempted to approach
him he would kill White and the officers."
According to the statements by Duke and White in
the arrest report, Duke forced White to drink beer with
him while he kept White on his knees at gunpoint.
Finally, Duke said he would release White only if
he could talk to his father, who was located in Archer
and brought to the negotiations. Around 3 or 4 a.m.,
Duke surrendered to the Sheriff's Office.
Sullivan and Sheriff Smith both said it was the
longest negotiation they have ever been involved
with during their time with the Levy County Sheriffs

Office.
Smith talked with Duke via cell phone throughout
the night and touched on many issues including
hunting and religion.
He said he tried to convince Duke that all people do
things in life that they regret, but that as human beings
it is not Duke's call to take his own life.
Smith said his main concern was getting White, an
innocent party, out safely and then getting Duke to put
the gun down and turn himself in. Duke expressed that
after he saw his father, he was going to end his life,
Smith said.
"You just never know what's going to happen next,"
Sullivan said. "It was an extremely tense, highly volatile
situation. We already know he's killed someone. We
don't know what he's going to do next."
Fortunately, White was turned loose and Duke
released himself to the Sheriff's Office, Smith said.


And it was a team effort on the part of the Sheriff's
Office and the Fish and Wildlife Commission that it
all worked out.
"We have a very professional team, and I can't say
enough about their performance," he said.
According to the arrest report, Duke said the
fight between he and his wife was over finances, his
consumption of alcohol, and him not paying a credit
card bill. He snapped and picked up White's .45-
caliber handgun, pointed it at her and shot.
He pointed and shot a second time after she fell
to the floor. Then he approached the body, lay down
beside her and told her he was sorry and loved her,
according to the report.
The couple had been dating about seven years.
Duke was charged with murder, armed kidnapping
and possession of a firearm during commission of a
felony. His bond was set at $2 million.

Chiefland police arrest one more in drug bust


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Yet another drug dealer is offthe streets ofChiefland
thanks to Operation Trick-Or-Treat.
Jarvis Green, 21, 1050 S.W First Drive, Chiefland,
was arrested by Chiefland Police on the afternoon of
Nov. 4. He was wanted on drug charges but could not
be found during the roundup on Oct. 23.
Operation Trick-or-Treat was the completion of a
six-month investigation by the Levy County Drug Task
Force. During the investigation, the Drug Task Force
used undercover agents to purchase powder and crack
cocaine and cannabis from drug dealers.
The roundup resulted in 13 arrests that night and

Sheriff's arrests


two more the following week. Green was one of the
few who managed to elude police that night, but three
Chiefland officers were able to track him down based
on a tip called in by a citizen.
"That tells me that the citizens are interested in
cleaning up their streets too," said Chiefland Police
Chief Robert Douglas.
Green was found in an abandoned house behind the
South Chevron, Chiefland. Three grams of marijuana
was found hidden in a baby stroller inside the house,
although it could not be confirmed to be Green's.
Green was arrested on two warrants - violation of
probation and sale/possession of crack cocaine - and
one probable cause arrest for possession of crack
cocaine.


The drug roundup was the third in as many years,
and Chief Douglas said it's not going to stop anytime
soon since it's resulting in fewer drug dealers on the
streets.
"We can't tolerate this in. our city," he said.
The Chiefland Police Department and the Levy
County Sheriff's Department still have warrants for
a few more people who weren't caught during the
operation.
Douglas said if the citizens continue to be involved
in what's going on in their city, the streets will be that
much safer.
"When the citizens team up with law.enforcement,
there's nothing we can't do," he said. It's a "team that
can't be beat."

Judge candidates


have varied


backgrounds

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The three attorneys nominated by the Eighth
Judicial Circuit for the position of Levy County Court
Judge are an experienced group with widely varying
backgrounds.
Charlotte Weidner was once a legal secretary.
Ronald Stevens is a former drug store pharmacist.
Timothy Browning was once an air conditioning
mechanic in Miami. Weidner and Stevens live in Levy
County, Browning in Gainesville.
Their applications have been sent to the office of
Gov. Charlie Crist for review. He will appoint the next
Levy County judge. County Judge Joseph Smith is
retiring in December.
Weidner, 65, was born in Alachua County but has
lived the past 25 years in Levy County.
She served as a legal secretary for the law firm of
Chandler, O'Neal, Carlisle,.Avera, Gray & Long from
1965 to 1967. She was a secretary and legal assistant
in the firm of Clayton, Johnston 1972-75 and judicial
assistant to Circuit Judge R.A. "Buzzy" Green from
1975-78.,She earned a law degree from the University
of Florida while working for Green.
She has operated a private law practice for much
of her professional life, but also served as an assistant
state attorney from 1990-93 prosecuting misdemeanor
criminal cases. She vwas a candidate for Levy County
judge in 1982.
One significant court case she handled was one
in which a couple with two children filed for divorce
after less than five years of marriage. The woman
had come from Japan after becoming pregnant with
their first child. The husband allegedly became drug
dependent during their relationship. He faced several
years in prison. The woman wanted to go back to
Japan with her children. The judge was concerned
about terminating the husband's parental rights if
he had no visitation with the children. But the wife
would not have been able to make a living and care
for the children if she stayed with him. The parties
entered into an agreement allowing the wife to return
to Japan. Weidner represented the wife.

Ronald Stevens
Stevens, 60, was born in Ocala, but currently lives
in Bronson.
He was a drug store pharmacist from 1972-
84, first at Sunshine Drugs in Williston, Sunshine
Drugs Belleview, at Drugtown in Lafayette, Tenn./
Cottondale, Fla., at Best Drugs Newberry and Thomas
Drugs in Williston/Bronson..
He was a law clerk for Ronald E. Holmes in Bronson
from 1987-88 and opened his own legal practice in
1989. He has continued to operate a Bronson law
practice since 1989.
He was the Town of Bronson attorney from
1999-07 and attorney for the Levy County Property
Appraiser from 2006-08. He also served as attorney
for the county Value Adjustment Board 2008-present,
the school board in conflict cases in 2006-07 and the
Levy County Sheriff's Office forfeitures' attorney
2007 to the present.
One of the significant cases Stevens was involved
in as an attorney is a guardianship case. Stevens
represents a 30-year-old man with the mentality of
a two year old. The case was transferred from New
York to Florida nine years ago. The mother of the
man is suspected of defrauding the court and illegally
using the man's assets. Recently the court ordered the
parents to relinquish custody to the man's brother,
the newly appointed guardian. The parents refused.
Law enforcement-forcibly entered the home to take
custody of the man.

Tim Browning
Browning, 53, has worked as a state prosecutor for
his entire professional life. He earned his law degree
from the University of Florida in 1984.
He has been chief of special prosecutions since
January 2009. Brown was chief of crimes against
women and families from April 2002 to January of
2009. Before that, he served as division chief for the
State Attorney's office for Bronson and Trenton from
1989 to 2002. He was an attorney for the John Colin
firm in Marathon, Fla. for two months in 1989 and a
legal intern for the state attorney in Miami in 1988.
In his current job as chief of prosecutions, he is
responsible for handling homicide cases and other
violent felonies such as a sexual battery, kidnapping
and aggravated child abuse.
He routinely handles grand jury presentments
where the state is seeking a first degree murder
indictment.
One significant case he handled resulted in a


life sentence, followed by consecutive life and by a
consecutive 243 years. The defendant, who was the
ex-boyfriend of the victim, had tortured the victim
over a period of weeks. She had visited his residence
in High Springs and became his captive for a period
of weeks. Law enforcement located the victim when
they conducted a well being check at the defendant's
home. She had serious injuries.


Team Levy prepares for 4th session


Team Levy has announced its fourth and final
community 'engagement of the 2009 calendar year,
focusing on resources and priority-setting as a
community. The session is open to the public and will
be held Nov. 12 at the Bronson Middle High School
cafetorium from 2:30 to 5 pm.
"This final session of 2009 is critical to Levy
County's economic development future," said
Amanda Douglas, executive director of the Nature
Coast Business' .Development Council. "Through
the 30 Year Scenario Game, we are gathering vital
information and outlooks from a diverse group of
community leaders and stakeholders, and using it as a
tool to put vision into action. This will help us see the
major milestones over the next 30 years."
Team Levy was developed by the Nature Coast
Business Development Council, Inc. to provide a
forum for people to come together from all sectors
anrd parts of our community to explore potential for
the future, address the changes ahead, and determine
how Levy County, the place we call "home," should
look 10, 20 and 30 years from now.
"Levy County is in a special position," said
Carol McQueen, chair of the Nature Coast Business
Development Council Board. "We can anticipate
a number of projects in the near future, share our
aspirations with people from all community sectors,
and tap into expert leaders."
Entitled "Resources and Priority-Setting as a
Community", the upcoming Nov. 12 session will
be the most interactive and vital yet, according to


Douglas. Attendees will participate in a 30-year
scenario planning exercise, commonly known as the
"Chips Game."
Divided into teams of scenario planning is a
process in which professionals and citizens work
together to analyze and shape the long-term future
of their communities. Using a variety of tools and
techniques including eight different scenario maps and
color-coded chips representing different population
numbers, participants can assess trends in key factors
such as transportation, land use, demographics, health,
economic development,/environment, and more.
The participants bring the factors-together in
alternative future scenarios, each of these reflecting
different trend assumptions and tradeoff preferences.
The visualization of the interaction among the
forces in each scenario provides information on
the consequences of potential actions. In the end,
all members of the community - the general public,
business leaders, and elected officials - reach
agreement on a preferred scenario. This scenario
becomes the long-term policy framework for the
community's evolution, and is used to guide decision-
making.
The information collected from this planning
support system is used to integrate public values and
consensus in the development ofa concept plan which
can become the basis of the comprehensive plan. '
Questions can be directed to Douglas at (352) 221-
5113 or adouglas@naturecoast.org. For a background on

Author Carolyn Cohens stands in front of the historic Rodgers home built around 1918.
Karen Rodgers Pankow and her husband John live in the restored home. Rodgers Gro-
cery Store stood on the adjoining lot before Karen's time. Her grandparents, Ben Eula
Rodgers, owned the store and lived in the home.
Cohens, from Page 1A


on a horse decorated by his sisters for a Chiefland
parade. On the following page is a photo of Don
Quincey and Usher's son, the late Tommy Usher.
Young Tommy is sitting in the tiny play car loaded
with watermelons. He is wearing a western hat. Young
Don, with a summer haircut, is at the front of the car,
apparently trying to work on the motor.
A photo on page 40 shows a Chiefland fire truck
many years ago. Standing with the truck are young
Roman "Putch" Putchhaven, Omar Harrison and
Cecil Stanley, The truck is parked alongside Stanley's
Sundries store, which no longer exists. The painted
sign on the wall behind the truck said the store had a
fountain service and sold cosmetics, good coffee and
hot soup.
This is the second book for Cohens, a Chiefland
native. Her first book, "Black America Series, Images
of America," was popular and inspired local families
to bring their photos to her for her second work. The
newest book focuses largely on families who founded
and built.Chiefland and the surrounding settlements,
many of which no longer exist.
"There are so many things we forget," Cohens
said. "This book was a way to document a life that
doesn't exist anymore."
Anyone who knows local founding families may
find it difficult to put the book down once they begin
to see the photos. The photographs allow the reader
to time-travel back to an era long before cell phones,
computers or even television sets. People dressed
differently and lived differently. The books sells for
$21.99.
Cohens knew many of the local families depicted
in the book through her beloved grandparents, Amos
Gibbs and Margaret Gibbs. Her grandmother worked
for Miriam Buchanan, a former Chiefland judge and
the first female mayor of Chiefland.
On Page 64 of the book is a photo of five ladies
having tea as Margaret Gibbs stands behind them. They
were Iris Usher, her daughter Helen Usher, Miriam
Buchanan and Meriam Turner, wife of Sheriff Jim
Turner. The photo below them shows S.J. Buchanan,
of Buchanan Logging and Timber Company with his
daughter, Judith, and wife Miriam.
The following page shows Purdy Rodgers, who
owned a turpentine operation. He is standing with his
hand on a pine tree. He worked turpentine operations
at Lebanon Station, Perry, Hines and Mulberry.
Dipping turpentine in Levy County has been replaced


by modem technology, the book noted. But turpentine
was once a big business in Levy County.
On Page 66 is a 1961 photo of Lonnie Capers
beside a pine tree marked with a cat face. The cat face
was a cut in the pine bark that allowed pine sap to
flow into a catch tin. Capers is wearing overalls and
an apron to protect his clothing.
Pictured on the opposite page is the late E.T. Usher,
Sr. standing in front of the Suwannee Turpentine
Camp and wearing riding pants. Horses were still used
for business and farming in those days. Turpentine
provided work for many men who came to Levy
County. Though the turpentine industry has vanished,
a few trees remain in the Levy County woods with cat
faces, tins and clay pots that serve as a reminder of the
booming turpentine industry of the past.
Cohens said her grandmother was more than an
employee of Miriam Buchanan. They were good
friends. When Mrs. Buchanan passed away, her
grandmother took it hard.
"I didn't want to tell my grandmother Ms. Miriam
had passed away because it was more than work for
her. They were good friends," Cohens said.
Cohens said she acquired her love of local history
from her grandfather, Amos Gibbs, who considered
Carolyn Cohens his favorite grandchild. They went
everywhere together. She listened to the stories he
told her about old Levy County and the people he had
met and it stuck in her mind. Tagging along with her
grandfather enabled her to meet many of the founding
families in Chiefland.
"My grandfather would talk to me all the time,"
she said. "He would let me pal around with him. If he
went to Cedar Key to buy oysters, I would go along. If
he went to catch crawfish from a stream in the woods
I would be with him. He would tell me about people
he knew."
When word spread that Cohens was planning to
write a book about Chiefland area history, she said
local families began contacting her and submitting
photos. She has enough photos for another book.
Sometimes they would bring the photos to her home.
Some residents mentioned they had photos when they
saw her at the Post Office. Others would call her. She
found the photos intriguing.
"Even putting it together, I enjoyed reading it.
"I'm just proud 1 was able to be one of the keepers of
Levy County history. To put it in book form, 1 was
very proud that I was able to do this."

The County Paper E 3


Sne Levy Lountv Journal


Let me


get this


straight

By Rick Burnham
Editor
Eighteen minutes after Republicans
won the governor seats in Virginia and
traditionally-Democratic New Jersey,
CNN rushed a story to its website explaining
how the elections were not a result of voter
dissatisfaction with Barack Obama.
That's pathetic.
Then White House adviser David Axelrod
hit the airwaves with a statement declaring that
the races in Virginia and New Jersey were all
about local concerns, while a New York House
race - that the Democrats won - was decided
by national issues.
That's predictable.
Both CNN and Axelrod are just doing their
jobs - they both report to the same man - but
they are both just a bit misguided.
Let me get this straight ... President Obama
gained his office with the help of a morally and
legally corrupt organization - the Association
of Community Organizers for Reform Now -
providing voter registration services all across
the country, and changes in the statehouses in
Virginia and New Jersey are a result of local
issues?
Let me get this straight ... the Obama
administration quadruples the national debt
in six months, putting future generations of
Americans behind the eight-ball in the process,
and a voter trend toward a more conservative
approach in Virginia and New Jersey is all
about local issues?
Let me get this straight ... Barack Obama
promises to close the U.S. Detention Center
in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and bring hundreds
of hardened terrorists to American soil where
they will almost certainly be freed by a left-
leaning justice system, and the elections in
Virginia and New Jersey were decided by local
issues?
Let me get this straight ... the government
takes over GM, Chrysler and half a dozen
banks, and a "pay czar" decrees what the
salaries will be for executives in those
companies, and the gubernatorial races in
Virginia and New Jersey were all about local
issues?
Let me get this straight ... no fewer than
six administration appointees by Mr. Obama
were discovered to have problems related to
paying taxes - including, amazingly, his choice
to lead the Internal Revenue Service - and the
decisions by voters in Virginia and New Jersey
to go a different direction were based on local
issues?
Let me get this straight ... a number of
Obama White House advisors and former
advisors have openly and blatantly described
themselves as admirers of Communism or
Communist leaders, including Van Jones,
Anita Dunn and Mark Lloyd. Self-proclaimed
Communists, Socialists and sympathizers of
both are advising the President on U.S. policy
... and the elections in Virginia and New
Jersey were decided by local issues?
Let me get this straight ... the President
and his leftist partners in the Senate and House
of Representatives are about to ignore public
opinion and force a trillion dollar government-
run healthcare system down our throats - when
similar systems have failed miserably all over
the globe, and the governors-elect of Virginia
and New Jersey got their new jobs because of
an emphasis on local issues,?
Let me get this straight ... the commander
of U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan
- who Mr. Obama appointed - has asked the
President for a troop increase, adding that
the war in that country could be lost if such
an increase does not happen. For more than
two months, the president worked on his golf
game and ignored the general - certainly a
subject-matter expert - and the election of two
conservative governors in Virginia and New
Jersey is a local matter?
We all get a little starry-eyed and optimistic
at times, choosing to accept words like "hope"
and "change" with the promise of a bright
future. We all get a little greedy at times,
opting for promises such as "free healthcare,"
even when the writing is on the wall about the
accompanying destruction of the country.
Eventually, though, the light will come on.
CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, the New York Times


and a hundred other media outlets have been
too afraid to reach for the light switch. So Fox
News and Glenn Beck did it for them, and the
roaches ran.
America was watching, and still is. And
next November, when America votes again,
many of those roaches are going to be shown
the door - local issues or not.


Presidential mandates a form of


political theater rather than reality


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Sam always amused when I hear recently elected
American presidents claiming their margin of
victory gave them a mandate for change.
Yeah, right.
Mandates arising from presidential elections are as
rare as a dirt poor candidate winning for the nation's
highest office.
It doesn't happen often, if ever.
Mandates exist only in the vivid imaginations of
presidents and their enthusiastic supporters.
Elections are often very close. No conclusions can
be drawn from tight races.
President Obama's backers followed tradition in
boasting that the 69.5 million votes he received in the
2008 election gave him a mandate.
He did receive a lot of votes, but his Republican
opponent, John McCain, also received a sizeable chunk
of votes, some 60 million in all, give or take a "hanging
chad" or two in Florida.
Obama defeated McCain by a margin of about 7
percent.
The math doesn't equal a political mandate. It
wasn't a landslide. It wasn't a runaway victory. It was
a win.
If you were to add-in the votes of the othet 23
presidential candidates that were on the ballot in
various states, the total number of Americans who
voted for someone other than Obama was roughly 62
million.
Obama received 69.5 million.
The vote totals tell us many Americans wanted
someone else in the White House other than Obama
- 62 million for sure.
Where is Obama's mandate?
The voices of those who didn't vote for the president
should not be ignored in the political process, but
that is exactly what Obama has done in his first 10
months in office. He is governing from the far left.


He is ignoring voters who have a different political
philosophy than him. That is typical of presidents.
President Bush governed the same way, only from the
far right.
Ignoring active Republican and independent voters
could be a costly mistake for Democrats in the 2010
congressional elections, and the 2012 presidential race.
Republicans made the same mistake in 2008 when they
lost control of Congress and the White House. "Those
who cannot remember the past are condemned to
repeat it," said philosopher George Santayana.
Governing from the middle would be the best
course of action for any Washington politician, but
with the ongoing bitterness and political animosity
boiling beneath the surface in nation's capitol, I don't
see either party heading toward the center of the
political stage. It's a national tragedy.
I found it interesting last week when Republicans
won the governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia.
They were swept into office by the same independent
voters who gave Obama his win in 2008, according to
media reports. Independent voters tend to see through
partisan politics like a glass window. They don't like it.
They are active voters and they shun party politics.
Obama and the Democrats in Congress would be
wise to take a second look at his agenda. It is obvious
to me the American public is in no mood to watch
Obama ard congressional Democrats -swing the power
club and beat Republicans over the head with it. Hard
ball politics constipates the politics in Washington.
Voters got their belly and intestines full of that type of
politics with Bush and congressional Republicans.
Obama received no mandate from the American
people. Obviously a majority of voters wanted a
change of pace, but it was a thin majority and no valid'
inferences can be drawn by any reasonable person.
The vote was an encouragement from independent
voters from both major political parties in Washington
to move toward the center of the political landscape
where compromise and cooperation drive the political
process rather than hatred and retaliation.


CAAA thanks
Once again the community of Chiefland has stepped
up to provide a service for our children. Through the
efforts of Chiefland Area Athletic Association volunteers
and the businesses of Chiefland, our annual Halloween
Carnival was a huge success. CAAA started the
Halloween Carnival 11 years ago to offers parents and
the community an alternative to door-to-door Trick-or-
Treating. Chief of Police Robert Douglas ensures that
our carnival is a safe place by assigning city policemen
to monitor the area.
We also need to thank Betty Walker, our former
mayor, and the businesses of Chiefland who donated
time, money and door prizes to make this event a
success. Liz Smith, Rhonda Beauchamp, and Jamie
and MaryAnn Wetherington helped me organize and
construct the carnival.
Through our efforts we will be able to continue
our annual scholarship fund. We give one senior male
and one senior female fromChiefland High School a
scholarship. There were many students from CHS who
worked at the carnival. They were proud to give back to
their community.
We also need to thank many of the employees of
Winn Dixie who donated their time to run booths and
pass out candy. Also, one of the highlights of the night
was a gold and diamond necklace that was donated by
Mrs. Wendy from Bejeweled Jewelry.


Over the years CAAA has grown and branched out
to serve children and adults with athletic events year
round. We consider it an honor and privilege to work for
the citizens of this community. The Halloween Carnival
is an event that we look forward to hosting. It's just a
time to have good family fun.
We thank everyone who was involved in helping
us make the Halloween Carnival a success. So many
individuals and businesses participated. It is impossible
to name each one.

Wayne Weatherford
President, CAAA

Bronson Vietnam veteran recalls paratrooping days


Story and photo by Tara Massagee
Correspondent

He jumped from airplanes into areas unknown,
tracked through isolated parts in the jungle and
witnessed things that he refuses to talk about.
Larry McLemore, 63, served for 12 years in the
United States Army as a communications specialist
and a paratrooper in the 101st Airborne Divison.
At 18 years old and fresh out of high school,
McLemore said he decided to join the Army because
he felt adventurous.
"If anyone tells you they're not afraid of war,
they're crazy," McLemore said. "I just wasn't afraid
to go."
Before heading off into foreign countries and
fighting wars, McLemore had to endure basic training
at Ft. Benning, Ga.
"The discipline was not that hard for me,"
McLemore said.
He said he was always respectable to his parents
and others so bootcamp was not as hard for him.
Other than discipline, bootcamp prepared
McLemore's body for the physical tasks he would
have to perform.
"It got you in shape for the military," he said.
McLemore said joining the army was probably )
the best thing I ever did."
"The army was the start of my livelihood," he
said.


McLemore's first stop after boot camp was
Germany.
"I didn't like Germany," McLemore said. "It
wasn't good for me. It wasn't my cup of tea."
He said he did not like the weather and lifestyle,
so he volunteered to go to Vietnam.
McLemore served two tours in Vietnam, once in
1968 and again in 1969.
He said during his time in Vietnam he faced
combat with opposition forces but was luckily not
wounded.
He said the chances of him being mortally
wounded were high, but he "was blessed."
Even though McLemore was not injured in
Vietnam, he did come into contact withAgent Orange.
He said according to his doctors at the Veterans Affairs
Hospital, they believe that Agent Orange caused him
to have type II diabetes.
McLemore said he is being treated for the diabetes
and Agent Orange and also receiving compensation
for the exposure.
Not a day goes by that McLemore does not think
about Vietnam. He said he saw a lot of death and the
cruel ways people were killed. He said he "refuses to
talk about the death."
In Vietnam, McLemore made only one jump as a
paratrooper into the jungle, and it "was a disaster."
He said the terrain did not suit it, and "jumping in the
jungle is not cool."
See McLemore, Page 16A


Larry McLemore is a Vietnam Veteran liv-
ing in Bronson. He served for 12 years as a
member of the 101st Airborne Division and
communications specialist.

current salary.
Barron withdrew her motion after
asking Ward if he planned to change
his attitude. She wanted to know if
he would speak more respectfully to
commissioners. Ward didn't think he
had been disrespectful or that he had
bad attitude.
'"He just gets more bold and more
bold and more rude and more rude,"
Barron said
Barron offered a replacement motion
to advertise for a new fire chief. Ward
felt the motion amounted to firing him.
She made a third motion to terminate
him. Commissioner Sammy Cason
seconded the motion and it passed, with
Commissioner Rollin Hudson opposed.
Hudson arrived at the evaluation
session 30 minutes late.
The motion to terminate Ward was
made after City Attorney Norm Fugate
explained that advertising for a new fire
chief wasn't the same thing as firing
him. He said Ward would probably
continue to serve while a new chief was
hired.
Commissioner Frank Buie said
Ward's attitude is what "got the whole
commission in an uproar."
"I feel you could have changed if
you wanted to," Buie said.
Ward responded that if he was
"supposed to sit down and shut up" he
would never be able to do that. He said
he felt he had the right to speak his mind
and defend what he felt was right.
"I know I went wrong when I opened
my mouth, when I should have kept it
shut," Ward said.
Pomeroy appointed Assistant Fire
Chief A.D. Goodman as interim chief.


John Ward faces commissioners
as they evaluate his work as fire
chief. Or Monday, city commis-
sioners chose not to renew the
chief's contract, essentially end-
ing his service with Chiefland.
Goodman agreed to take the job but
said he wasn't interested in a permanent
position and he didn't want the interim
post to affect his current job. He said he
would hold down the fort until someone
was found.
"I don't want to see what he (Ward)
done go to waste," Goodman said.
The final blast of emotion came after
the vote to terminate Ward.
An unidentified firefighter walked
up to Pomeroy and handed in his badge,
telling Pomeroy it represented 10
years.
Goodman said he preferred not to
identify the firefighter. He wanted to
talk to him first.

JUST PREACHING


OR TELLING


THE TRUTH?


My daughter Kailey has always
been picky about restaurants. When
she was little, she figured they
should all either
serve milk, have a
jukebox, or at least
sport some sort of
live fish. Although
the Chinese buffet
had made strides
in her estimation
with the addition
of their new shark
tank, the Waffle
House generally
always topped her
list. I recall one
early morning visit
there in particular
when she was 5. But AnyV
I held her little .
hand tenderly With G
as we parted the
low cloud of cigarette smoke to our
usual booth. The sizzle of bacon and
the clanging of the spatula nearly
drowned out the "Waffle House
Boogie," which was seeping from the
crusty ceiling speakers. A long line
of bedraggled customers eyeballed
us suspiciously from the counter.
Obviously we stood out, being the
only ones who'd been home from the
previous night.
We ordered and I, being a gung-ho
new Christian, set out to teach Kailey
about Jesus's command to spread the
Gospel. Unfortunately, it seemed my
lecture was going over no better than
it does at most churches. Besides, I
could barely get a word in edgewise.
"Daddy, Daddy, Can I have a
quarter?" she kept interrupting.
I knew I was in for an uphill
battle. Before I could even begin
my dissertation from the Strong's
Concordance, I could see she wasn't
paying attention. I was starting to
feel a wave of self righteous anger
well up. Don't kids even care about
the souls of mankind?! Suddenly she
switched gears and gave me a start.
"Go tell 'em 'bout Jesus, Daddy,"
She squeaked, pointing at a booth
full of big rough-looking bikers.
After a quick study of the situation,
I decided it was best to give Kailey
that quarter after all.
"Here, sweetheart," 1 smiled, "Why
don't you run play the "Waffle House


.Shuffle" again on the jukebox?"
She wiped her milk mustache on
her sleeve and took off. 1 must admit,
while she was gone
1 did a little Waffle
House shuffle of my
own.
"Lord, please
let her forget about
those bikers by the
time she gets back!"

She didn't. In
fact, she came back
with the quarter.
"Here, Daddy, give
'em dis monies
when you tell 'em
'bout Jesus."
ay... Five year olds!
il I sae-l Do they never tire
Uy S oetieci of ruining your good
sermons with their
simplistic views of reality? Don't
they understand simple concepts like,
"Do as I say, not as I do!"?
Ofcourse, Jesus was somehow able
to value such simple childlike faith.
He made that clear in Mark 10:15.
(Verily I say unto you, Whosoever
shall not receive the kingdom of God
as a little child, he shall not enter
therein. KJV)
But anyway- I was beginning to
sweat by that point. Looking into my
big ol' sack full of Christian excuses
I whined, "I just don't feel led right
now honey." Then, to my shame, I
added, "You go. It's your idea."
She just looked at me withthose
big blue eyes. She'd forced me into
a corner. So I did something I didn't
know I had in me. I went. Oh... don't
get me wrong, I went afraid. But I
went. I don't exactly recall what I
said to those big bikers - something
about Jesus. But you know what?
They didn't kill me or anything!
I may never know if my witness
mattered to those bikers that day,
that's between them and God; but I
believe it mattered to Kailey. I know
it mattered to the Lord.

Log Ca6in Quitrs


The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Nov. 5, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a very busy day
trying to go through a truckload of quilts
that need to be finished, lots of fabric,
lots of sheets to use for lining quilts
and so much more. When someone
gets to the point that they can't do what
they have done for years, it's time to
take care of what has to be taken care
of. The lady is 91 years old and in the
hospital with the flu and she wanted her
lifetime of work to be brought to the
museum so we can finish what she has


started. We will be needing lots of help
getting it all done.
Greg and six boys were out on
Wednesday. They cleaned cupboards,
mopped floors, watered and so much
more. Thanks, Lancaster.
Thursday's lunch was cheese and
macaroni, chicken and rice, squash,
fried eggplant, butter beans, more
cheese and macaroni, chocolate pie,
coconut pie, banana bread, biscuits and
so much more.

Tri-County Master Gardeners win state award


Submitted by Barbara Edmonds
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of
the UF/IFAS Florida Master Gardener
program, hundreds of Master Gardeners
convened in Ocala during the annual
training conference. Events included a
field trip and lecture at the UF Horticulture
Teaching Unit, speakers Walter Reeves,
author and host of "Your Southern
Garden" and Tom MacCubbin, radio,
television and newspaper columnist with
concurrent sessions on Green Industries
Best Management Practices and plant
talks.
The conference concluded with the
presentation of UF Extension Awards
of Excellence. Nature Coast Master
Gardeners competed against Duval,
Volusia and Seminole counties. The
winner was selected by UF specialists and
in an emotionally charged contest; Nature
Coast Master Gardeners harvested the
Extension Awareness Award. They were
recognized for their efforts and successes
in engaging and informing diverse
clientele. One-on-one interaction takes
place at speaking programs, meetings,
area festivals, Wal-Mart garden center
booth, IFAS Extension offices and
during Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
yard visits.
The first Tri-County Master Gardener
training program took place at Fanning
Springs 2007. Participants received
initial classroom training under the


auspicious eye of Anthony Drew, Levy
County ExtensionAgent. In exchange for
50 hours of training, attendees pledge 50
hours volunteering in UF/IFAS approved
projects in Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist
counties.
"This is our third year with the Master
Gardener program and we're certainly
pleased to receive state recognition,"
commented Anthony Drew, "but are even
more proud of our Master Gardeners.
They are a great group' of individuals.
They've done a fine job as ambassadors
for UF and the Extension office."
Drew says it would be appropriate
to thank staff and others who laid the
foundation in bringing this program to
the tri-county area: Nikki Wilson, former
Program Assistant, Dalne Dola, and
Audrey Sharpe.
"We could not have done it without
them," he said.
Back at the conference, doctors Robert
Black and Jim Stephens (UF retired
2002 and 2001 respectively) delivered a
heartfelt message of encouragement and
thanks; acknowledging and appreciating
the experience, knowledge and skills
that Florida Master Gardeners utilize in
service to residents.
Since inception in 1979, Master
Gardeners have donated 5.4 million hours
of volunteer time worth an estimated $83
million. Tom Wichman, UF State Master
Gardener Coordinator added that in 2008
alone, more than 894,000 contacts were
made with horticulture-related questions.


Nature Coast Master Gardeners representing Levy, Dixie and
Gilchrist counties receive the UF/IFAS Extension Awareness Award
from "founding fathers" of UF Florida Master Gardener Program.
(L-R) Robert Black, Jim Stephens, Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
Services Coordinator Barbara Edmonds, Nature Coast Master
Gardener John Myers, UF Acting Dean for Extension Millie Ferrer-
Chancy, Nature Coast Master Gardener Dr. Todd Swinderman.


Wichman added that 50 states have a
Master Gardener program with Puerto
Rico, Guam and Great Britian having
similar international programs.

Coast Master Gardeners is available

Movie Choices


DISNEY'S A CHRISTMAS
CAROL (IN 3-D)
(Running time: 96 minutes)
Rated PG
Animated with the voices of Jim
Carrey, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth

I have seen several versions of this
timeless story. So I was expecting to
be bored with yet another version of
the same tale. But this version was
definitely not boring and the 3-D made
it come alive. The animation makes the
characters look real.
Ebenezer Scrooge(Carrey)isacheap,
mean old man who treats everyone with
disdain. He is heartless and cruel, even
to those close to him. Seven years after
his equally bad partner dies, he is visited
by three ghosts: the Ghost of Christmas
Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present and
the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.
The messages in this story are still
relevant today, perhaps even more so
with so many people chasing the all-
mighty dollar. Kids will understand.
However, there are many truly scary
images here. After all, you can't scare
such a nasty old guy with just a few
puny ghosts.
There is some violence, no sex and
no bad language. So although I enjoyed
Disney's A Christmas Carol, I cannot
recommend it for kids under 10 or 11


who might have nightmares as a result.
The 3-D Made this old story come
alive, but gave the scary images greater
power, too.

AMELIA
(Running time: 120 minutes)
Rated: PG
Starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere,
Ewan McGregor

This biopic of Amelia Earhart was
good, but too long. According to the
movie, Miss Earhart (Swank) did some
spectacular things and then lived the
life of a rich wife and celebrity. The best
part of the movie is the story about her
breaking ground for women and being
the first serious female aviator.
The photography is stunning and the
period details like clothing, towns and
houses is fascinating. It gives you the
flavor of the 1920s and '30s.
Amelia Earhart was a role model.
'She was a pioneer who lost her life
trying to be the first to fly around the
world. Her story is exciting and she still
stands as a beacon of independence for
girls and boys. There is no violence,
some sexual scenes and infidelity. There
is a little bad language and some scenes
with alcohol and smoking. Amelia is
best for kids 11 and up as it is too adult
and too long for younger kids.

The County Paper E 3


Ine Levy uountv Journal


Young airman Byrd Griffin Byrd Griffin was a turret gunner on a B-24 bomber. He points to a drawing of his airplane, the
Gator, and to the small turret bubble at the top of the airplane.
Griffin, from Page 1A


bases when necessary.
The flight to Normandy on D-
Day was unforgettable. As the B-24
flew toward the coast Griffin could
see through breaks in the clouds the
armada of 7,000 military ships moving
toward the French coast for the massive
invasion. The ships were carrying
thousands of troops and hundreds of
tons of equipment.
"You can't imagine the sensation of
seeing so many war ships," Griffin said.
"Every now and then you could look
through the clouds and see ship, after
ship after ship."
Griffin's crew dropped 8,000 pounds
of bombs on shore installations at
Omaha Beach. They flew back to base
after the first mission and were given
sandwiches. They made a second strike
deeper into France, dropping 8,000
pounds of bombs again before returning
to base. It was their final mission of the
war.
Every combat mission held the
potential for quick death in the air or
capture on the ground if they were shot
down, When a bullet passed through
his plexiglass turret on one mission, he
was reminded of how short life could be
for the crew members. He still doesn't
know how the bullet missed him.
Griffin and the crew he flew with
were part of the Eighth Air Force. The
history of the Eighth Air Force in World
War II is detailed on an Internet site -
http://www.8thafhs.org/combatahtm.
The raw statistics show the Eighth
Air Force took heavy casualties in 1944.
It also inflicted massive damage on the
German war machine. The Eighth Air
Force flew in waves of closely packed
bombers defended by fighters. The
bombers often flew wing tip to wing
tip.


Griffin's description of the danger he
faced flying over Germany is confirmed
by the casualty totals on the web site.
The site describes the daily missions
of the air force and lists the number of
airplanes and airmen lost in the skies
over Germany.
Here is one example.
- On Tuesday, April 11, 1944, the
Allied Command dispatched 917
bombers and 819 fighters in three
separate forces to bomb production
centers (primarily fighter aircraft
factories) and targets of opportunity
in north Germany. Sixty-four bombers
were lost. It was one of the heaviest
single day losses of World War II.
Of the 341 B-17 bombers dispatched
to hit aviation targets at Sorau and
Cottbus, 19 were lost and three were
damaged beyond repair. A total of 190
bombers were damaged. Twelve airmen
%\ere killed in action, 13 wounded and
200 missing in action.
Of the 302 B-17 bombers dispatched
to.hit Poliz,Arnimiswalda and 15 targets
of opportunity, 33 bombers were lost,
one damaged beyond repair and 153
damaged. Two airmen were killed, nine
wounded and 330 missing in action.
Of the 274 B-24s dispatched to hit
aviation targets at Oschersleben and
Berenburg, nine also hit industry targets
at Halberstadt, nine bombed Eislebep
and five hit targets of opportunity.
Twelve B-24s were lost, one damaged
beyond repair and 63 damaged. Five
airmen were killed in action, nine
wounded and 122 missing in action.
Seven P-47 American fighter planes
were lost and 16 damaged, with seven
pilots missing in action. Nine P-51
fighters were lost and 13 damaged with
nine pilots missing in action.
Adolph Hitler and the Nazi war


machine were silenced within 11 months
of the D-Day invasion. Griffin's crew
had flown into the teeth of the German
Luftwaffa air force to destroy plants
manufacturing ball bearings, weapons,
munitions, airplanes, or anything else
that could be used in the German war
effort.
The manufacturing plants and war
munitions plants were well defended
by anti-aircraft guns. German soldiers
filled the air with metal flak in hopes the
American bombers would fly into the
jagged metal pieces and fall to earth.
German fighter planes would swoop
down through the clouds at 450 miles
per hour to attack American bombers.
The temperature inside the bomber
aircraft wofid drop to 40 to 60 degrees
below zero. The planes flew at 25,000
to 30,000 feet. Temperatures inside
the bombers were brutally cold in the
winter.
"It was so cold you cguld close your
eyes and ice crystals were crack off your
eyeballs," Griffin said.
Griffin was a teen-ager when he and
BobHome, alongwith 17 otherChiefland
boys joined the U.S, Army. The military
was stepping up recruitment efforts at
the time. The boys were told if they
joined the military they wouldn't have
to fight and they would earn their high
school diploma. They could live in the
states and work as military mechanics.
Chiefland closed school the day the
boys were sent off to join the military.
A crowd turned out to applaud the
boys. Residents sang the Star Spangled
Banner as the boys boarded a bus at
Mrs. Hardee's Hardware Store.
"It was a glorious time. That's how it
began," Griffin recalled with a smile.
Griffin was sent to mechanics school
in Goldsboro, N.C. and later to gunnery


school in Fort Myers, Fla. He was
one of the top five in gunnery school.
Griffin was sent to gunnery competition
in Panama City, Fla. He was excited to
see his friends again.
From gunnery competition, Griffin
trained as machine gunner aboard
airplanes that would drop bombs on
military targets in Germany. His crew
flew to California to pick up a new
airplane. From there they flew to Palm
Beach on their way to England. Their
orders, which they opened at midnight,
took them first to Trinidad, then Brazil,
Dakar, Africa and England.
After the war, Griffin, came back to
Chiefland to open Griffin's Department
Store in south Chiefland. He and his
wife Evelyn raised two daughters,
Rhonda and Carol. He retired and
closed Griffin's when Wal-Mart
moved to town. He knew he could not
compete with the chain store giant.
His children are grown now and he
has grandchildren. He remains an avid
golfer at 85.
Griffin is by nature peaceful person.
He thought about the consequences
of his bombing missions as he flew
to the targets. He knew people were
being killed by the bombs, but he
also realized that something had to
be done to stop Hitler's war machine.
Hitler planned to conquer the world.
He nearly succeeded. The bombing
missions were intended to rob them of
their ability to make war.
At the same time, Griffin said he
believes everything should be done to
avoid the possibility of war. He was
opposed to the Iraq War for example.
"If the people that wanted war had
to fight it themselves, we wouldn't
have that many wars," he said. "Every
life is precious."


McLemore, from Page 9A


All his other jumps were made in the United
States as training jumps, He said being a paratrooper
earned him an extra $115.
"That was good money in.the military," he said.
McLemore re-enlisted into the military twice
after his initial startup at age 18. The first time he re-
enlisted was because he could not get used to being
home and being a normal civilian.
"I could not adjust to being back in the civilized
world," he said. "I got used to the military
lifestyle."
The second time was on request of his wife,
Delores.
McLemore said they first met when he came


back home to Alabama on leave in 1971. He said
she worked for his mom in the cafeteria at school
and he asked her to come visit him in Texas where
he was stationed.
When she arrived in Texas, McLemore said he
would not let her go back home.
Delores said it took him asking her five or six
times to marry her before she said yes because he
was-not currently in active duty and did not have a
steady job. Also, jobs were hard to find, she said.
"I wouldn't marry him unless he went back into
the military," she said.
She said one day she was sitting at her mother's
house when he showed up wearing the top part of


his army uniform, and he told her he had re-enlisted
and again asked her to marry him.
"He asked me to marry him and I said yes," she
said. "In order to win me over that's what he did."
As of now, McLemore is retired and living
in Bronson with his wife of 38 years. He has
been retired for about a year and is making plans
to travel around the state fishing and camping.
When McLemore was working, he said he refused
to work on Veterans Day and believes no veteran
should have to work on that day.
"The United States is not perfect, McLemore
said, but it's the most perfect place on earth."
"The U.S. is worth fighting for."

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

Monday Night Football is as popular
as ever in Williston, But it's not for the
faint at heart.

Bronson scoredthreeunansweredtouchdowns
Fright night to defeat Tallahassee McClay 19-13
in a come-from-behind win.
"We needed this one so bad," Head Coach Al
Cooksey said. "The kids fought so hard."
Senior quarterback Kelby Barber ran 21 times
for 147 yards and a touchdown and threw nine
times for 109 yards and a touchdown to lead the
Eagles.
Bronson scored its first touchdown of the
night on 46-yard pass from Barber to Raymie
Powers that left the score 13-6 at the half.
The big break came on the opening kickoff
of the second half. Powers sent a looping squib
kick between the front and back lines of the
kickoff return team. The Eagles recovered at the
22 of McClay.
Four plays later on a fourth-and-one, Barber
sliced through the center of the McClay defense
for a touchdown. Powers added the extra point
with 9:06 left in the third quarter. The score was
tied at 13-13.
The final score came after the Bronson
defense held McClay to zero yardage on a
fourth-quarter drive. Barber broke up a fourth-
down pass. Bronson took over on downs at its
own 39.
The Eagles running game kicked into high
gear with Barber breaking loose for a 13-yard

Chiefland rally falls short vs Hilliard

Having been eliminated from the Class 5-1A
playoff race earlier in the season, the Chiefland
Indians have been relegated to the spoiler role
in recent weeks, looking for satisfaction in the
demise of others.
Friday, against Hilliard, they very nearly
ruined the Flashes' 2009 season, falling 25-20
in a hotly contested game.
As it turns out, Hilliard won't make the
playoffs anyway. The Flashes needed a
Wildwood loss to The Villages Friday, and did
not get the results they needed. But Hilliard did
not know that, when Chiefland was knocking on
their door midway through the second half.
Bo Beauchamp returned an interception for a
score, and Jamantye Thompson ran eight yards
for another, but a late Chiefland rally fell short
as the Indians fell to 3-6 on the season. Jakarr
White picked up 97 yards on 14 carries for the
Indians.
Michael McKendree rushed for 168 yards,
and two touchdowns and Brannon Braddock


blocked a punt in the waning moments as
Hilliard improved to 4-4 on the season overall,
and 4-2 in District 5-1A play.
Chiefland fell behind early in the game,
failing time and time again to get a handle on
McKendree. The senior halfback scooted up
the middle for 30 yards on the Flashes' initial
possession of the game, a drive that was aided
by a facemask call on the Indians.
Chiefland put together a substantial drive of
its own on the next drive, marching 30 yards in
10 plays to the Hilliard 34, but the drive stalled
there after two losses on running plays and an
incomplete pass.
The two teams traded punts until a Hilliard
drive late in the second quarter produced
an 8-yard touchdown run by McKendree.
Quarterback Shuman Hurlbert's 10-yard pass
to Trey Boyd was the key play of the drive as
the Flashes took a 14-0 lead.
But Chiefland responded, recovering a
fumble by McKendree at the Hilliard 29, and
driving to the end zone on runs by Thompson

Editor , .

Times change. People change., . ,
Back in 1980, the most important thing in life .
to a high school athlete was the letter that was
sewn on the school jacket. You wore that.jacket
with pride, and the more bells and whistles you
managed to get on it - signifying your athletic
prowess in one or more sports - the better.
Nowadays, the letter jacket's popularity has -
fallen by the wayside, in favor of jeans with the
waistband worn loosely around the knees. Perhaps
a baseball cap worn at a 45-degree angle.
I had a brief conversation with a. couple of
Chiefland Indian fans Friday night, and the subject
turned to letter jackets, and how, back in the day, the mere thought
of losing that letter would keep you on the team throughout the
season, no matter what. You simply did not dare walk away. No
taking the easy way out.
Times change though. People change.
The Indians turn their attention north to Taylor County this
week, concluding what has become a difficult season for players,
coaches and fans. At 6-3, the Bulldogs will likely provide very
little solace. In addition, the game is Taylor County's senior night,
so expect a little extra energy from the home team.'
But you just never know about high school football. Perhaps
the Indians won't let this final opportunity pass. Perhaps they
feel all the'hope and promise ofAugust was justified, and will go
out and give Taylor County the battle of their lives. Perhaps the
class of 2010 has one last "w" left. Perhaps the players left - the
gutsy ones who stuck it out to the end - have a surprise in store
for all of us.
That's what I'm thinking. CHS 28, Taylor County 21.
Speaking of surprises, what a pleasant surprise it was to see
the Bronson Eagles return from Tallahassee with a win over
McClay last week. As tough a season as it has been in Chiefland


BMS' win over Trenton

results in 8-1 record

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson Middle School's hard working football
team finished its season with a 14-8 victory over
Trenton a week ago.
The team's record was 8-1. -
The score at the Trenton game was tied 0-0 at the
half.
The Eagles-broke open the game in the second half
when Nicholas Wilson ran the kickoff back 82 yards
for a score. Wilson followed his blocks well, Coach
Greg Hamilton said.
The Eagles are a fundamentally sound blocking
team. Quarterback Tyler Beauchamp threw a strike
to Devaughn Jenkins for the two-point conversion.
Hamilton described it as "great catch" for Jenkins,
similar to the one he made in the win over Williston.
Later in the fourth quarter, Brock Brower scored
Broison's second touchdown on a one-yard run that
capped off an 80-yard drive. Beauchamp completed
five consecutive passes on the drive.
The young Eagles were a coachable team from the
start. They were able to carry out the instructions of
the coaches on the playing field with success.
The team had its heart set on an undefeated season.
They were disappointed at their only loss. But Hamilton
said they played hard and he is proud of them.
"They had great parent support, great community
support and they have chosen to work hard and listen
to the coaches rather than making other choices,"
Hamilton said.
The day after the Trenton win, the coaching staff
treated the boys to a celebration. Six of the seven
coaches were present. The coaches praised the
strengths of every player on the team.
"You play a nine-game schedule. It's good for
the kids to hear positive things from the coaches,"
Hamilton said. "We're trying to build young men."

S " this year, it has been just as difficult in Bronson,
where Head Coach Al Cooksey and staff have
worked overtime to put this team on the map.
This time of year the job becomes doubly tough,
with early-season optimism replaced by end-of-
year fatigue.
But make no mistake - the players left on
the team are the ones who will give it their.all
on every play. They are the ones who deserve
to be on the field. They are the ones who will
lay the groundwork for a resurgent Eagles team,
whether that resurgence happens next year or in
the near future. They are the ones who will beat
St. Francis on Senior Night, 22-14.
Williston's Senior Night comes only four days
after the Red Devils' emotional 20-13 Shootout victory over
Mount Dora. Head Coach Derek Chipoletti's team got sweet
revenge over a Hurricanes' squad that had waltzed into town
and stole Williston's homecoming only two weeks ago.
Can the Red Devils get up again only four days later and
beat Union County? Sure they can. Williston 42, Tigers 14.
Can the Florida State Seminoles get up again, ever, after
dropping an emotional conference game at Clemson Saturday?
Can they re lace super-duper quarterback Christian Ponder,
who dislocated his shoulder against the Tigers and is out for the
year? Can they beat Wake Forest, a team that has tortured FSU
over the past four years? Probably not.
Still, this is Sports Wrap, where optimism flies in the face of
good, sound'logic. FSU 27, Wake Florest 24:
The Gators travel to South Carolina to take on the old ball
coach Saturday, and you just know that Steve Spurrier would
like nothing more than to stick a pin in the UF balloon and spoil
things for his alma mater. Can the 6-4 Gamecocks actually beat
Tim Tebow and the Gators? No, they can't.
SBut, they will definitely make it interesting for a quarter or
two. After that, all orange and blue. UF 45, South Carolina 17.

Win over Newberry propels Red Devils to shootout

Story and photos by Ryan Butler __I
Correspondent


Deonte Welch had a good reason to be excited on Friday
night. His team had just won a come-from-behind thriller on
the field of one of north central Florida's best programs.
And the victory put his team just a quarter away from a
second straight post season birth.
Behind the latest" excellent performance from their star
running back, the Williston High School football team defeated
Newberry 35-21 in their most important game of the season.
"I was focused and did what I needed to do," Welch said. "I
knew I could succeed and I just tried to do the best I could."
The pivotal win tied Williston with the Panthers and Mt.
Dora for second place in district 4-2B. The winner of Monday's
tie breaker secures a match-up against state power Jacksonville
Bolles on Nov. 20.
"I think we can go out and win it if we come out prepared
like we were tonight," Welch said.
From the running game to defense to special teams, the Red
Devils had one of their best games of the season at a time they
needed it most. Williston's anchor had one of his best games
of the season, finishing with 143 yards on 19 carries and three
touchdowns.
In addition to Welch and the team's offense, Williston would
not have won without the performance of their defense. The
usually stout unit put together an excellent all-around game and
held a strong Newlerry squad to seven points in the second half.
They also picked off three passes from Newberry quar-terback
Yance Enoch, including one returned for a touchdown.
"The kids always fight and tonight we fought and put things
together in the second half," Williston head coach Derek
Chipoletti said. "I've been waiting for this to happen."
After struggling all season with penalties and mental
mistakes, the Red Devils minimized miscues and took over in
the game's second half. After trailing 14-7 at the beginning of
the third, Williston put up 28 points in a dominating half. Welch
rushed in for his third touchdown with around three minutes left
in the game, putting the Red Devils up two scores and clinching
the game.
The defense matched the offense's dominance in the second
half. Desmond Holmes gave the Red Devils a 21-14 lead with
an interception he returned for a touchdown. Kalen Penny
followed with an interception of his own three plays later which
set up another score.
Aside from a touchdown on a long drive prolonged by a
successful fake punt run for a first down, Williston's defense
didn't allow the home team a legitimate scoring chance in the
second half.
"Defense wins championships and we're going to need
them," Chipoletti said. "They gave us the short field and set up
the offense."
DJ King rushed for a 23-yard touchdown run tb put the Red
Devils up 28-14 following Penny's third-quarter interception.
Newberry's Boris Hadley plunged in for his third touchdown of
the game on the following possession, but the game's outcome
was never in question with Welch and King picking up large
chunks of yardage on most touches.
King started the second half behind center in a wildcat
formation after quarterback Dalton Edwards struggled in the
game's first half. The new formation gave the Red Devils
their best drive of the game as King directed the offense with
handoffs to Welch and direct-snap keepers. Welch finished the
series with an 18-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 14.
While Williston came out strong in the third quarter, the
Panthers carried momentum into halftime. Up 14-7, they had
control of the game, rushing the ball effectively, and receiving
big plays on the ground, through the air, and offa blocked punt
which set up a touchdown.
But Enoch, who played offense, defense and special teams
for Newberry, started to feel the impact from Williston's
physical play. Several times he lay on the ground following a
play. Clearly nicked up in the second half, he fought through
while eight of his injured teammates watched on the side
lines.
With a little over a minute left in the second quarter, Hadley
fell in from a yard out for his second touchdown of the game.
The score put Newberry up a touchdown heading into half
time.
This followed an exchange of turnovers between the two
teams in the quarter. First, Newberry recovered a fumble off
a failed screen pass. Then Williston's Tony James deflected
an Enoch pass with the ensuing possession, giving his"team
the ball after a turnover on downs. But the Panther's got the
ball back on the next series of downs, picking off Edwards and
setting up Hadley's score moments before halftime.
The Panther's bruising fullback scored to begin the quarter,
picking up another short touchdown, to tie the game at seven
with over 11 minutes left before halftime. Newberry started the
drive following a blocked punt near the end of the first quarter.
Welch scored the game's first touchdown with a dash from 10
yards out. His touchdown followed Holmes first interception,
which came off a deflection on the game's initial series.

winner-take-all second quarter against
Williston.,
Mount Dora took an early lead when
Jordan Ozerities raced 44 yards with
4:52 remaining in regulation. It looked
for a while as if that score might hold
up, but Williston put together a 76-yard
drive to tie the game, scoring on a 1-yard
plunge by quarterback D.J. King as time
expired. Dillon Moody's extra point sent
the game to the first overtime.
Mount Dora quarterback Vegas
Harley gave his'team a 13-7 lead with a
1-yard plunge, but Matt Nichols' extra
point was blocked by 6'3" defensive
lineman Jordan White.
�King tied the ganA on a wild scamper

one play later, running back several yards
before turning up the left sideline, but a
bad snap on the extra point cost Williston
the win.
Deonte Welch gave Williston its first
lead of the game with a 10-yard run on
the first play of the second overtime, and
this time Moody drilled the extra point,
putting the Red Devils ahead 20-13.
This time, the Red Devil defense
stiffened, holding the Hurricanes out of
the end zone. Harley's pass to wideout
Brandon Simmons on fourth down fell
incomplete, setting off a wild celebration
that spilled from the Williston sideline
onto the field.
In the midl of that crowd was Red


Devil Head Coach Derek Chipoletti, who
spoke of a game - and a season - filled
with ups and downs.
"That is a microcosm of what our
season has been like this year," he said.
"Ups and downs, momentum swings,
bonehead plays, great plays. I am proud
of those guys. They stuck it out and they
are going to become better men because
of it.
"But I definitely have more grey hairs
than I started with this season."
The coach singled out senior
quarterback Dalton Edwards. Edwards,
after sitting out much of Friday's game
against Newberry, came in against Mount
Dora and completed a 23-yard pts to


Isaac Floyd to convert a second-and-12
play to keep the game-tying drive alive
in regulation.
"He didn't start this game, and a lot
of kids would have went into the hole,"
Chipoletti said. "And then he comes out
and makes one of the biggest plays of the
year for us. So it is a real tribute to him
that he was able to make that play."
Now, following a Senior Night
contest against Union County, it is on to
Jacksonville for the Red Devils, where
they will face a very talented Bolles
team.
"They are a powerhouse," Chipoletti
said, "but we are going to give it our best
shot."

Fall ramblings

A season for everything wild

Snowbirds migrating to Florida might be the
most obvious signs of the onset of fall for some
full-time residents of the state, but wildlife is also
keenly reactive to the accompanying seasonal
changes that include shorter days and cooler
weather. We've written before about cold fronts
and their effects on migratory birds, but almost all
wildlife responds to fall seasonal changes, though
sometimes in dissimilar fashion. So do people.
As for birds, Neotropical migrants are setting
up shop locally for the winter or fueling up for
a longer trip to the Caribbean or South America.
Local bird feeders are being visited by many
species, and increased numbers of ducks, other
migratory waterfowl and wading birds dot our
large lakes, rivers, beaches and freshwater ponds
and tidal marshes.
As for birds of prey, northern harriers can
be seen actively gliding over marsh areas, and
Cooper's hawks will be on the prowl for the new
feeding opportunities brought on by the vast
migration of smaller bird species into Florida.
Eagles are engaged in spectacular aerial courtships,
while their osprey cousins rebuild nests, high on a
wide variety of naked perches close to their fishing
sites.
Not surprisingly, people react to these fall
migrations too, by putting out backyard feeders
to attract birds. But don't be surprised if your
backyard bird feeder creates an ambush point for
birds of prey like Cooper's hawks. That's Mother
Nature -- sort of.
Bird feeders also can create health problems
for migrating birds, so don't forget to clean your
bird feeders regularly with a 10-precent solution
of chlorine bleach to help prevent the spread of
disease. We owe it to these tiny migrating birds,
some having survived a grueling 2,000-mile
journey punctuated by bad weather and other
life-threatening issues, not to let them to become
victims of reckless human kindness by feeding
them in unsanitary conditions.
To top off the aerobatic bird festival, majestic
sandhill cranes and white pelicans add to the
variety of air show performers taking up winter
residence.
Remember, there are good reasons not to feed
either of these species, neither of which benefit
from the practice.
As for reptiles, including native snakes,
alligators, turtles and a variety of other cold-
blooded animals, the season for high activity is
winding down. Just don't forget that though the
metabolic rates of cold-blooded animals decrease
with temperature, alligators are still capable of
acting as apex predators, and all cautions in the
FWC's "Living With Alligators" brochure, need to
be observed with due respect.
Be you a snowbird, bird watcher, hunter, all
around nature lover, pet owner or just somebody
who appreciates living in the Sunshine State, fall is
a time of thanksgiving and of wildlife. Enjoy!

Williston ladies ready to run in new year


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Ladies basketball teams visiting
Williston this season may want to bring
along an extra oxygen tank. Maybe a
ventilator or two. They're going to need
it.
First-year coach Robert Patterson
said Monday that his team will be
small in stature, but will enjoy plenty of
quickness and speed. As a result, he said,
the offense will run, and the defense will
press.
"We are, not blessed with a whole lot
of height," said Patterson, who takes over
for Jason Odom. "But we have some
quickness and I am going to utilize that.
We are going to run and we are going to
press."
A number of underclassmen will lead
the team, Patterson said, beginning with
junior guards Erika Mason and Kae'etta
Jackson. Patterson hopes Cinnamon
Robinson will become a force on the
inside, along with Akiria Strange and
A'Sha McDonald.
A key to the early season, Patterson
said, will be assistant coach Shereka
Jackson. Jackson will help mold the
team while Patterson finished up
assistant coaching responsibilities with
the football team.
"Shereka played for me a couple of
years back," he said. "She is doing an
excellent job."
Patterson and Jackson will install a
new offense and defense, and hope to
have the system in place by midseason.


"It will take some time to put in
my offense and press, but the girls are
picking it up, from what we are doing at
this time," he said. "By midseason, we
hope to have everything in and we should
be playing pretty well. I am expecting a
good season."
One of the keys to building the
program, Patterson said, is to establish a
viable junior varsity team.
"We are low in numbers," he said.
"Hopefully by next season, we will have
a junior varsity and a varsity. You need
a feeder program. We have been without
a junior varsity team for three years. It
is important to have those girls coming
with the JV."
Patterson said he expects plenty of
tough competition in District 5-3A,
beginning with Santa Fe and Suwannee
County.
"Santa Fe is always tough in the
district," he said. "Suwannee County
has a good team too. We don't think
there will be any easy teams on the
schedule, especially early in the season.
Our approach is that we are not going to
overlook anybody. Our goal is to be the
better team on the court each night. That
is what we are going to strive for.
"We are going to bring girls basketball
back to life here in Williston," he said.
"We are very excited about it."
Williston begins its season with a
Nov. 17 home game against Chiefland
before traveling to West Port on Nov. 19.
Newberry, West Port and Fort White, then
visit the Lady Red Devils for consecutive
games through Dec. 4.

scamper on first down. A.J. Graham ran for five. Mike
Sinclair powered his way through the center of the
defense to move Bronson to the McClay 40.
Barber carried the ball on three consecutive plays to
the 29 /2 of McClay. On fourth-and-inches, he punched
through the McClay line on a quarterback sneak. A
measurement by the line crew showed he got the first
down by half the length of the football.
A.J. Graham broke loose on the next play for a
touchdown around right end. He used his speed to
.outdistance all but one Marauder. He broke an ankle
tackle before gliding the remaining 20 yards for the
score. The extra-point attempt was blocked. Bronson
took a 19-13 lead with 1:54 left.
Bronson created another big break on the kickoff.
Powers popped a looping squib kick in the air. Mike
Sinclair recovered for Bronson with 1:49 left.
The, Eagles were unable to move the ball and punted
the ball away with 1:24 left in the game.
McClay picked up a hard fought first down on their
final drive that took them to the Bronson 40 before the
Eagle defense closed the door.
Bronson ran out the clock with a pair of kneel-downs
by Barber.
The team celebrated briefly on the sidelines before
the customary handshakes at center field.
"Great effort. Great second-half effort and you
finished it," Cooksey told the team afterward.
Cooksey said the touchdown before the half.was
big because it gave the team the confidence it needed to
come back in the second half.
Lack of confidence has cost the team several close.
games, he said. Cooksey said Bronson overcame that
tendency on the road at McClay.
"It's a big win for Bronson.
Bronson takes on St. Francis this Friday at 7 p.m. in
Bronson.
It will be senior night. The team wants to win on senior
night and close out the season on a winning note.
Defensive Stats:
A.J. Graham 9 tackles, Raymie Powers 3 tackles,
Thomas Howard 2 tackles, Mike Sinclair 4 tackles and
1 assist, Kelby Barber 3 tackles, Quintelle Coleman 4
tackles, Ben Landon 2 tackles, Brandon Allen 4 tackles
and 1 assist, Frank Gay 3 tackles.

Chiefland, Bronson bands prepare for semi-finals


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Good news for Levy. County marching
band enthusiasts: Both the Chiefland Hihli
School and Bronson Middle/High School
marching bands qualified for the state semi-
finals competition to be held in Tampa Nov.
21.
It was a long road for both bands. Bronson,
having just introduced Michelle Barber as the
new band director in the summer, faced the
possibility that the band wouldn't be ready in
time. Chiefland faced the possibility that this
year's seniors wouldn't make it to the semi-
finals for their final year, having made it the
last five years in a row since starting band in
sixth grade.
Both bands qualified and advanced from
the Tri-County Invitational held at Chiefland
High School Oct. 17.
The Southern Showcase of Champions was
held at Santa Fe High School Oct. 31. Bronson
placed second in class 1A and received a
"superior" rating in percussion, music and
visual and "Best in Class" for music, Barber
said.
Chiefland placed third in class 1A and
received a "superior" rating, which allowed
them to advance to the superior level at the
semi-finals, said the Chiefland High School
Band Director Matt Flenner.
There will be about 25 other bands
competing in the semi-finals at Jefferson
High School Nov. 21. The top five bands will
be selected to advance to the state finals at
Tropicana Dome in St. Petersburg that same


day.
This being the first time the Bronson Middle/
High School marching band has qualified for
semi-finals, Barber said they have several
things to focus on from now until the 21"t.
Performing the Gaelic "Yesterday's Joy"
by S61as An6, she said they are perfecting
their marching maneuvering and musical
performance.
Barber said although she is overwhelmed
thinking her students have a shot at state
champions, she is not surprised at their
success.
"I'm not surprised because we've put in a
lot of hard work, but I don't know if any of us
really expected it," she said.
She said she hopes they will be able to
return next year, and until then they will need
to keep their egos in check.
The Chiefland High School marching band
will be performing "Pulse" by John Meehan,
which Flenner said is a fairly complex show
and visual design.
The band members .are still trying to iron
out the little flaws, but he said they "always try
to peak at state semi-finals."
Flenner, who has been the band director at
CHS for 11 years, said that for the past five
years the school has made it to semi-finals and
they have always stayed in the middle upper-
level in class 1A bands.
He said his is a very talented group of
students who work very hard, and since
Flenner is all about work ethic, things fall into
place with the band.
"It's a really big accomplishment for such a
small school like us," he said.

halftime during Friday's home game against Hilliard.

The Chiefland Middle School volleyball team proved that
"' a cool head will always prevail.
The team won the Suwannee Middle Athletic Conference
championship Oct. 22, beating Bradford in two games 25-
21.
.~ i . ' There are six teams in the Suwannee Middle Athletic
Conference; Chiefland, Dixie and Williston make up the west,
and Bradford, Union County and Ft. White make up the east.
.. .The team completed the season 13-1 and won the
championship thanks to the calmness of the players, said
Coach Heather Darus.
"This team all year, especially the eighth graders, they just
don't get rattled," she said.
S"'A volleyball coach at. Chiefland for 18 years, Darus said
-- this team stands out because the girls are so mature and don't
. .get overly excited or worked up during a game.
"For their age, it's very unusual," she said.


', .,. She said she respects the girls not only because of blow they
act on the court but also because of how they are as students
.- and as young ladies in general.
The majority of the players are honor roll students and they
have very supportive parents who have been a great asset to
the team, she said.
"This is an exceptional group of young ladies," she said.
