School board,


union discuss


$4.35 billion


federal grant

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor,

The School Board of Levy County began discussions
with union officials Tuesday on plans to tap into a
$4.35 billion federal grant program that encourages
educational innovation and reform.
In order to receive the competitive grant money
from Race to the Top, districts must have the complying
signatures of the school board superintendent, the school
board chairman and the president of the union.
Superintendent Bob Hastings said the participating
districts must turn in a Memorandum, of Understanding
to the Florida Department of Education by Jan. 8 in
order to apply for the money.
On Tuesday morning, the school board administration
called a special informational workshop with the union
and school board members to discuss the components
of Race to the Top and what it could mean to Levy
County.
Assistant Superintendent Gina Tovine summarized

Dropping aquifer levels in Santa Fe Basin worry officials


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Scientists at the Suwannee River
Water Management District are
seeing alarming trends showing the
Floridan Aquifer is being lowered by
water withdrawals in the area north of
Gainesville known as the Upper Santa
Fe River Basin.
SRWMD scientists are working
closely with the St. Johns Water
Management District to pinpoint
exactly how withdrawals made by
Jacksonville and Gainesville and other
locations outside the basin, as well as
within the basin itself may be lowering
groundwater levels.
Jacksonville and Gainesville lie
within the St. Johns district.'The two
districts share the Upper Santa Fe
River Basin.
The two districts are predicting
groundwater levels in some parts of
the basin could drop by as much as
10 to 20 feet by the year 2030. If that
were to occur, it could impact the flow


of springs in the area and impact other
natural systems.
"If you continue the trend it's a sure
fire recipe for a disaster," said SRWMD
Executive Director David Still.
SRWMD and the St. Johns water
district have yet to determine whether
the withdrawals in the Upper Santa
Fe River Basin are influencing
groundwater levels in Levy County or
other areas west of the basin. The two
districts are using computer modeling
to assess the impact of the dropping
aquifer levels.
Still said SRWMD also doesn't have
the scientific data to conclude whether
the trend toward lower groundwater
levels in the Upper Santa Fe River
Basin could be labeled an inter-basin
transfer of water. Inter-basin transfers
normally occur when water is piped
from one water basin to another, but
the question is whether the dropping
groundwater levels in the Upper Santa
Fe River basin could be pulling water
from the west to fill the void being
caused by withdrawals.


The Floridan Aquifer is a subsurface
limestone formation that holds water
like a sponge. The aquifer ranges in
thickness from 250 to 1,500 feet and lies
below the entire state of Florida and the
southern portions of Alabama, Georgia
and South Carolina. Homeowners,
farmers and local governments in
Levy County and elsewhere in Florida
sink their wells into the aquifer to get
drinking water.
Still said SRWMD doesn't have
the funds at this time to purchase the
next generation of sophisticated water
modeling equipment that would be
needed for a regional analysis of water
trends. The district wants to analyze the
complex Suwannee River Water Basin
that extends from Levy County up to
Cordele, Ga. It also wants to examine
the aquifer in other parts of Florida
because the aquifer is one subsurface
rock formation.
One of the things SRWMD can't
control is how much water is used in
Georgia or in the St. Johns district,
and yet those water withdrawals can


influence what happens in SRWMD.
SRWMD is developing an Upper
Santa Fe River Basin Regional Water
Supply Plan in cooperation with the St.
John's district. Data shows there will
not be sufficient water to meet future
needs of people and natural systems
in the Upper Santa Fe Basin. The
information is based on the Minimum
Flows and Levels (MFL's) developed
for the Santa Fe River.
The state says water districts must
determine the minimum flow (MFL)
needed by springs, streams and rivers
to sustain the water resources of the
area. The minimum flow is the point
at which further withdrawals of water
would be "significantly harmful"
to water resources. State statutes,
however, do not define what is meant by
"significantly harmful." Water districts
must make that determination.
The district is also in the process
of developing a district-wide water

costly health insurance

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The high cost of health insurance will soon cost six Williston
city employees their jobs.
Their last day is Nov.30.
City council members decided last week to eliminate the
employees and use the savings to pay the $151,000 in increased
health insurance costs. The council did not want to take the money
out of reserve funds.
Council members gave the union the choice of keeping the six
employees or accepting lower cost insurance, according to City
Manager Marcus Collins.
"The union made the choice for the layoffs," Collins said.
The union made a counter offer to accept lower cost insurance
that would have added a $1,500 deductible to their health
insurance, but it also wanted assurances of no layoffs and wanted
five additional paid days off this year.
Council members refused to offer assurances of no layoffs and

A union official representing employees at the Levy County
Sheriff's Office said Tuesday he plans to declare an impasse on
wage negotiations because Sheriff Johnny Smith failed to notify
the union earlier this year of his plans to buy 15 patrol cars, after
first announcing he had no money for pay raises.
Jack Soule, who represents the local chapter of the Police
Benevolent Association, said he would notify the Public
Employees Relations Commission that the sheriff spent
$414,000 on the patrol cars and returned $100,000 to the county
commission despite earlier claims he had no money for raises.
"We feel he's let us down," said Soule. "That's definitely
going to be an impasse issue."
Smith said there was no attempt to mislead employees
about the money. He said his second in command, Col. Mike
Johnson, was so focused on the county commission's order to
cut $570,000 from the 2009-10 sheriff's budget that he didn't
notice the money left over in last year's budget.
Smith said the circumstances were such that he had not
purchased any new patrol cars the previous year and maintenance

City searches for new fire chief sets interim chief's pay


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Two weeks after they terminated
the former fire chief, -Chiefland city
commissioners Monday approved a
timeline for hiring his replacement.
The deadline for applying is Dec.
11 and already 15 men - none of them
from Levy County - have sent the city
applications.
The salary range is $34,648 to
$44,866.50, depending on experience
and qualifications.
Interim Chief A.D. Goodman agreed
to serve in the position for $500 per
month. Goodman was assistant chief at
the time Ward was terminated.
Goodman works full-time as a
member services representative for


Central Florida Electric Cooperative and
has made it clear he doesn't want to give
up that job to be chief.
"I've got no problem doing it now,"
Goodman said. "If we can't find a
good chief, we'll try to do something
different."
He said the city's three paid firefighters
hired by. Ward are doing an excellent
job. He said he has been contacted by
a number of people who desire to be
volunteer firefighters.
Among the current applicants are
Robert Wirtz, Jr. ofYorkville, Ill., Stephen
L. Demeter of Gulf Breeze, Fla., Steven
Marfongella of Naples, Fla., Andrew
Frenock of High Springs, Fla., Daniel R.
Spillman of Monticello, Fla., David R.
Dogrezykowski of Minneola, Fla., Deny
O'Neal of St. Petersburg, Fla., Philip


Oxendine of Live Oak, Fla., Cameron L.
Bucek of Port Lucie, Fla., Terry Johnson
of Bay Saint Louis Miss., and Jason M.
Hughes of Green Cove Springs, Fla.
One of Chiefland's paid firefighters
plans to apply for the chiefs position,
but has yet to submit his application and
r6sume.
The city has advertised in newspapers
locally and in Gainesville, as well as in
the Florida League of Cities Datagram,
Florida Fire Chiefs Association and the
city of Chiefland Web site.
Police Chief Robert Douglas will
do the background investigations.
The city will ask Michelle Morton of
City Investigations to do additional
background checking if they can reach
her. The city has been unable to contact
her.


The city offered Ward his job back
when his contract came up for renewal, but
he wanted to negotiate for more money.
The city commission cited his attitude
as the reason for the termination. The
city felt he had a bad attitude and wanted
him to change. Ward disagreed with their
assessment and refused to change.
In other business, the city changed its
purchase policy to allowthe fire chief and
police chief to make purchases of goods
and services online from auction web
sites, local auction houses or national
auction firms. The city's old purchase
policy didn't allow such purchases.
The new policy requires the fire chief
and police chief to contact Hartzog in
advance of making the purchase. They
must establish a maximum purchase
price before going forward with the bid.


Grant, from Page 1A


awarded $1 billion of the fund, since the Florida strategic
plan is already closely aligned to the Race to the Top
grant, she said.
Half of the $1 billion will be held by the state.
Districts that are "involved," or ineligible, will receive
none of the grant money but could still be given some
of the $500 million the state is holding back;,however,
they will have no control over how the state allocates
the funds, she said.
The other half will be divided up as grants among
the "participant" districts that sign a Memorandum of
Understanding. This money will be based on the Title 1
formula, or the No Child Left Behind federally-funded
education program.
But in order to receive the grants, districts must
implement all or "significant portions" of the elements
of the State Reform Plan, Tovine said.
The meaning of "significant portions" is still unclear
and a request for clarification has been made to the state
Department of Education, she said.
The State Reform Plan gives point values, totaling 500


points, for four specific areas, including State Success
Factors, Standards and Assessments, Great Teachers and
Leaders, and Data Systems to Support Instruction. Each
participating district will be evaluated and scored based
on how well they implement the areas.
State Success Factors details the state's capacity to
implementthe proposed reform agendaand demonstrates
significant progress, Tovine said.
Standards and Assessments will develop and adopt
. ommon standards among states, districts and nationally
to prepare students for life after high school.
Data Systems to Support Instruction will give schools
data systems to measure student growth and success and
inform on how instruction can be improved.
The last component, Great Teachers and Leaders is
one of the largest components of the reform, making up
138 of the 500 points, Tovine said. Among other things,
this component ensures effective teachers and principals
are given bonuses and rewards and are utilized where
they are needed most, which may be in the poorest-
performing schools.


On the other hand, teachers unable to "move
students," or help students grow educationally, may be
dismissed.
This area will probably take the most conversation
and research because it will be a challenge to come up
with an accurate way to assess teachers, Tovine said.
In a matter ofyears, states may be enacting something
very similar to,the Race to the Top priorities.
The No Child Left Behind legislation is currently
being re-evaluated'by the Department of Education, and
right now what's being considered is looking similar to
the Race to the Top elements, Tovine said. This means
in just a couple years, the Race to th6 Top criteria may
be a requirement and those districts that chose not to
participate will have missed out on getting any of the
grant money but will still have to implement the criteria,
she said.
"It's very clear what direction they want our schools
to go in," Tovine said.
Right now, the district must weigh the pros and cons
of signing on for the grant, she said.

Chiefland Middle students speak on a range of topics


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Chiefland Middle School students have a lot to talk
about.
A school-wide speech contest held Friday at the high
school auditorium produced speeches about a range
of topics, including family, heroes, animals, insects,
vampires and history.
There were two separate contests, the first between
the seventl)- and eighth-graders and the second between
just the sixth-graders.
Six students placed and will advance to the county-
wide speech contest held in Bronson Dec. 3. In the
seventh- and eighth-grade competition, Savannah
Plummer took home first place with her speech
on "Heroes;" Kelsi Alexaider placed second for
"Overprotective Brother;" and Ricky Kidd won third
for his persuasive speech on "Fast Food."
In sixth grade, Kinsey Ward won first for "Life on
the Farm;" Trevor Castell placed second for his speech
on "Goliath Grouper;" and T.J. Brice won third for "My
Life."
The contest was on a volunteer basis for most, and
students were able to choose their topic for either a
persuasive or expository speech.
"We tried to encourage them to do something they
have personal experience with. It made it more real,"
said Laurie Beauchamp, sixth- and seventh-grade
language arts teacher at Chiefland Middle.

arts teacher at Chiefland Middle, said the students have
been preparing their speeches for about two weeks.
The important thing is for the words to grab the
audience and relay the main idea, or what the audience
is supposed to get out of the speech,. Gerhard said.
She said she was proud the students were able to
"come out of their shell and speak so eloquently."
Savannah Plummer, the eighth grader who placed
first, gave a speech about how true heroes don't have
to have super powers. She said her heroes are her mom,
a domestic violence advocate, and her father, a cook
at Huddle House, because they've worked so hard to


support their family.
She said she wasn't scared giving the speech and
she isn't nervous about going to the county competition"
because she is used to being in front of people as a
cheerleader and she has participated in the speech
competition every year.
She said she plans on being a domestic violence
advocate like her mother because it gives her the
opportunity to help people. And giving speeches gives
her the outlet to share her feelings.
"Being able to get up and tell people about how I feel
about certain things and maybe inspire them," she said.

supply assessment. The study will
be completed by the spring and will
evaluate how much water will be
needed to supply people and natural
systems in the short term and well into
the future.
There are 253 springs in SRWMD.
The springs account for 70 percent
of the water flow in the Suwannee
River. The flow of some springs can
be affected by dropping aquifer levels.


The flow at White Springs has stopped
entirely because aquifer levels have
dropped 20 feet since 1934, according
to the district.
The flow of the springs is also
important to downstream estuaries
along the Gulf of Mexico. The district
wants to avoid reducing or stopping
spring flow because the springs
along with the Suwannee River and
its tributaries provide water to the


estuaries, which serve as natural
nurseries for fish in the Gulf of Mexico
and provide habitat for many species
of birds and other animals.
In developing the water supply
assessment, the district is attempting to
balance human needs with those of the
natural systems. The springs and the-
rivers are important components of the
study, as are people.
Still is not ready to lay the blame for


lower groundwater levels in the Upper
Santa Fe River Basin at anyone's
doorstep. He said the district doesn't
have enough information to make such
a determination. He said the St. John's
district is cooperating at the highest
levels of the organization to study the
problem and find solutions.
"We're all part of the problem,"
Still said. "We all need to be part of the
solution."


Layoffs, from Page 1A
declined to give the union more paid days off. The
council instead agreed to keep four of the six employees
scheduled to be laid off, if the union would take the less
expensive insurance, according to union President C.J.
Zinioski.
Union officials rejected the offer.
The union wanted to save all six jobs if they were to
pay a health insurance deductible of that size. The city
wouldn't agree.
"It brings a bad taste to everybody because the
layoffs come at holiday time," said Zimoski, president


^ .i.. ' * *

.,IB...


of the Williston chapter of the American Federation of
Municipal Service Employees.
The remaining employees will keep their existing
health insurance. The city will pay the full cost of the
insurance. They will have no deductible.
Employees to be laid off are Bernard "Blue"
Gumbiner, a handyman hired in 2000; Daniel Hopping,
a gas technician hired in 2003; Mark Snyder, a sewer
treatment technician hired in 2006; Jeromy Watson, a
state and parks laborer hired in 2007; William "Rick"
Joyner, a meter reader and laborer for streets and parks
hired in 2008; and Elizabeth Graell, a utility clerk and
cashier in City Hall.
Snyder was one of the city garbage truck men who
had been scheduled to lose his job when the city hired
a private company to haul its garbage this year. The
union intervened and he was transferred to the city
sewer department, but he is once again losing his job.
Collins said the city identified key employees who
were needed to keep the city running before using
seniority to determine who would be laid off.
But Zimoski said the city's personnel manual states
how employees will be laid off.
"They definitely did not go by that," he said.
He said the union anticipates challenging the-way
the layoffs were handled. Zimoski said the issue will
go before a judge for a determination, or some "outside
person" who can make an independent judgment.
The city's health insurance is through Av-Med. City
officials this year accepted quotes rather than sealed
bids from other vendors. The union believes sealed bids
would have given the city a better chance of obtaining
a lower price. City officials believe they got the best
deal they could. Health insurance costs are rising and
they note that the city pays all the health'insurance for
employees.
The city's position is that it is looking out for the best
interest of the taxpayers in approving the layoffs rather
than dipping into reserves. The city council also made
a decision not to raise the millage in next year's budget,
although it did increase slightly through an error made
by Finance Director Mark Schiefer. He has resigned,
effective Dec. 31.
The union also wants the city to show how it will
generate additional revenues next year to avoid more
layoffs. The union had suggested selling off used


equipment to generate revenue to avoid the layoffs this
year.
Zimoski said the city has known for three years that
if it continued, spending more money than it generated
it would eventually be forced to lay off employees. He
said the city didn't heed the warnings and this year its
spending practices came to roost.
The city's view is that it has begun to get a grip
on spending practices. Cutting employees rather than
paying the additional insurance costs out of reserve
funds is evidence of that effort, the city says.
But Zimoski said the city made the decision to cut
the number of employees or cut insurance benefits
without consulting the union in the early going, a
violation of the union contract. He said the contract
says the city must negotiate anything that impacts
employees and their benefits.
The city says it has negotiated in good faith, but it
wanted to retain the authority to make layoffs when
necessary. The city initially gave the union the option
of taking less expensive insurance and keeping all six
employees, but the offer was later changed to retaining
only four of the employees, Zimoski said.
Zimoski said the union never really wanted to be
a union, but employees could see the possibility of
layoffs long before they materialized.
"We're not necessarily pro union. We'd rather
keep the money in our pockets, but we saw where
this was going," he said. "A blind man could see it
coming."
The city has agreed to let the union sit in on
budget workshops and meetings next year. The
union wants to know in advance if the city is facing
a budget shortfall and is planning to cut more jobs. It
also wants information on how the city will generate
additional revenues in the future to avoid revenue
shortfalls and layoffs. The city hasn't provided the
information, Zimoski said.
Zimoski said higher level union representatives.
told him they have never run into a situation like
this "where a city refuses to go by the contract they
agreed to." He said the union feels it must challenge
the layoffs.
"We are losing six people. If we convey the
message that if you lay off six people, we'll just lie
down, no one benefits," he said..

in a heated argument with Gerald Dukes Jr. before
she intentionally and unlawfully caused him to feel in
danger of great bodily harm. Dukes had to jump out of
the way of the car and he said it was so close to hitting
him he could feel the dirt the car threw up.
An independent witness gave a sworn written
statement that he saw Stone leave the residence in her
car, turn around, speed onto the lime rock driveway
going about 30-40 mph, almost hitting Dukes and
another witness, Kari Hicks.
Stone admitted to having drunk alcohol throughout
the evening. She was charged with aggravated assault

A Williston couple was arrested in a
child abuse case Nov. 20.
Alexander Merida, 32, of 14452
N.E. 48th St., Williston, was arrested for
lewd and lascivious molestation on a 2-
year-old after an investigation revealed
bruises and marks on the inside of the
child's thigh, a bite mark or suck-type
marks around the naval area, as well
as marks on the victim's face from her
nose to her right ear.
Merida, through an interpreter,
admitted he placed his mouth on the
child's inner thigh area and navel
area and sucked hard enough to cause
bruising.
The victim's mother, Christina
Morales, 28, and Merida have been
dating for eight months and he moved
in less than two months ago. Morales
allowed Merida to watch her two
children while she worked Monday
through Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 11

on her buttocks and feet. When he
questioned Morales about them, she
made up a story about the facial marks
before she finally confessed that the
child defecated on the carpet and as
punishment Merida rubbed her face in
it, like one would discipline a dog.
For the scars, Morales said when
she asked her son to give her daughter
a bath, he only turned on the hot water,
which scalded her. According to the
release, Morales said she neglected to
provide any medical service for the
injuries because she knew her children
would be taken away from her.
Morales was arrested for neglect of
a child. More charges will be filed on
Merida at a later date.

Impasse, from Page 1A
costs were beginning to soar on the
aging patrol fleet. With the economy still
in a recession and the county's budget
not in good shape, Smith said he knew
he probably couldn't purchase any cars
next year either.
"This was an answer to a prayer
for me," Smith said. "It was a good
opportunity to upgrade the fleet."
Smith said Johnson made an honest
oversight in failing to notice the extra
money until a day or two before last
year's budget year ended. Some of the
money was in an emergency budget line
item that pays for sheriffs operations in
years that hurricanes strike.
"We did negotiate in good faith. I
don't care what the union says. They
always try to find something to talk
about," he said. Smith said the union
usually "puts on a show" when it has
an audience. But there was no attempt
on his part to mistreat or mislead his
officers.
"All they (union officials) try to do is
make a statement to the guys," he said.
In addition to the $414,000, Smith
said he realized there was an additional
$100,000 left over in last year's budget.
He considered giving pay raises, but he
knew the entire county budget had been
tight and the county's financial situation
was not good. He said he also knew that
no other county employees had received
pay raises.
"Do my employees deserve more
money, absolutely, but we don't have
the tax base or receive the tax revenues
that Alachua County and Marion
County receive," Smith added. "The
bottom line is, if the money is not there,
it's not there."
The sheriff's office met with the
PBA during the summer months and


indicated that pay raises were out of
the question because the county budget
was too tight. The PBA agreed to wait
until late in the budget process before
raising the issue of pay raises again.
Late in September, just days before
the 2008-09 budget year ended,
Johnson found money in the sheriff's
office budget that he said he was not
aware of. Smith notified the county
commission he intended to purchase
15 patrol cars and would give $100,000
back to the county commission. .
Soule said the sheriff could have
sent a representative to sit down with
the union and talk about the money
he had found, but the first Soule heard
about the money was when he saw a
newspaper story about the patrol car
purchases.
Soule will ask for a special
magistrate to sit as an impartial judge
of the wage issue. The magistrate will
make a recommendation to the Levy
County Commission. The union and
sheriff's office will give oral arguments
to the commission. The commission
will make the final decision.
The union also plans to declare an
impasse over promotions and seniority
policies.
Regarding promotions, Soule gave
one example. He said if a sergeant in
patrol wants to switch to investigations,
he or she would lose their sergeant's
stripes after the transfer, but would
keep the same pay.
On the subject of seniority, Soule
said when the sheriff hires an employee
from outside the sheriff's office, the
union believes the new employee
should receive pay that represents no
more than five years experience in that
position.

Rotary fundraises to build house for veterans' families


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A representative of the future Fisher House in
Gainesville told Williston Rotarians last week that the
program gives the families and relatives of veterans a
home away from home when they are being hospitalized
for an unexpected illness, disease or injury.
Rick Fabiani of the Gainesville Fisher House
Foundation said a fundraising effort is underway to
raise $1.5 million to build a 21-bed Fisher House on
the grounds of the large Malcom Randall Veterans
Administration Medical Center across from Shands
Hospital.
The Rotary also wants to create a $10 million
endowment.
A private donor has already given $1 million to the
foundation. Fabiani preferred not to disclose the name
of the donor.
There is at least one Fisher House at every major
military medical center to assist families in need and
to ensure that they are provided with the comforts
of home in a supportive environment. The program
serves more than 10,000 families annually and has
made available nearly 2.5 million days of lodging to
family members since the program started in 1990.
The Rotary Club of Gainesville, which is
spearheading the effort to raise funds, believes
building a large Fisher House to serve North Florida
and South Georgia would benefit the communities and
the veterans that come to the VA hospital in Gainesville
for treatment.
Fabiani said building a Fisher House is the least that
can be done for veterans who have made the ultimate
sacrifice for their country.
There are 30 Fisher Houses in the nation. They
range in size from 16 to 42 bedrooms and are always
built in a location convenient to the veteran's medical
facility.


Williston Rotary President Norm Fugate presents Rick Fabian and Pastor Dalton Burch with
tokens of the club's appreciation. Fabian spoke about the Fisher House project in Gainesville.
Burch pastors the Presbyterian Church in Williston where Williston Rotary meetings take place.
Both were guests.


Fabiani said 450,000 veterans use the Gainesville
VA hospital. The Gainesville Rotary, through the
Rotary Foundation, is raising the money for the house.
The Gainesville Rotary plans to build a 21-unit Fisher
House.
Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher founded the Fisher
House program.
Fabiani said the Rotary believes if it received $2
from every person in the communities served by the
VA hospital in Gainesville they could quickly reach
their goal.
The Gainesville Fisher House Foundation is actively


seeking donations. A Medal of Honor is a donation
of $30,000 or more, Silver Star $20,000 to $29,999,
Bronze Star $10,000 to $19,999, Benefactor $5,000 to
$9,999, Patron $1,000 to $4,999, and Supporter $999-
or less.
People interested in making donations can print
out donation forms on the Gainesville Fisher House
Foundation web site - www.//gainesvillefisherhouse.
org/donate.html.
The mailing address is Gainesville Fisher House
Foundation, 8602 S.W. 5th Place, Gainesville, Fl.


Interim CFCC Levy director

speaks to Chiefland Rotary


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Susan Chappel is no stranger to
lengthy commutes. And she is more than
just a little familiar with small farming
communities. Soit'sreallyno surprisethat
the recently appointed interim director of
the Central Florida Community College
Levy Center greeted the Chiefland Rotary
Club with a confident smile Nov. 19.
CFCC announced earlier this month
that Chappel would replace Rayanne
Giddis, who is serving in the newly created
position of dean of academic foundations
at the CFCC Ocala Campus.
Giddis introduced her successor to the
Chiefland Rotarians, and Chappel wasted
little time in establishing a connection
with the group.
"For about eight years I lived in
Arkansas, where I served as a student
affairs officer," she said of her job at
South Arkansas Community College.
More recently, Chappel moved to
Melrose, Fla., and she commuted from
there to Jacksonville, where she served
as executive director of the Florida State
College at Jacksonville Foundation.
Chappel said she thoroughly enjoyed the


daily drive into the big city, a commute
similar to the one she will make to Levy
County.
It will only be a temporary commute,
she said, until a permanent replacement
for Giddis is found.
"I will only be here a short period of
time, and I do not expect to be initiating
a lot of change," she said. "What I will
be doing is observing and watching
and helping clarify the vision that Dr.
Dassance and all the leadership team
have for the future of the Levy County
campus, and it is so exciting that that will
be coming down the pike."
The new campus, along with other
significant projects in the county, makes
for an exciting future for area residents,
she said.
"Rayanne has talked to me about
Progress Energy and about the vision
for the new hospital," she said. "I know
these things are on their way, and I know
they will happen. They will be great for
Levy County."
Chappell also served as the interim
president and executive dean at the Kent
Campus ofFSCJ. She received her Ph.D.
in Higher Education Leadership from the
University of Florida in 1995.

A time


to say


thanks

By Rick Burnham
Editor

am not the biggest fan of turkey,
and for years I could not even stand
to look at a bowl full of dressing.
I long ago gave up on pro football
- too many prima donnas. And big city
parades? Snore.
Other than that though, I do
appreciate and enjoy Thanksgiving. It is
among the most precious and important
of American holidays, and should be
cherished for as long as there is an
America.
So I unleash to you the following list
ofpeole, places and things I am most
thankful for this holiday season.
First and foremost, thank you, our
customers, for reading the Levy County
Journal. With your unwavering support
and never-ending supply of quarters,
you have proven what many of us
have thought for some time about the
journalism business - that a publication
need not fall in line with the far-left"
thought process to be successful.
That there is another line of thinking
out there that is highly popular with
mainstream America but does not see
the light of day in the vast majority of
today's print and broadcast media. That
a small-town newspaper does not have
to resort to disruption and upheaval in
the community they serve. Thanks for
supporting us - we will strive to continue
our conservative ways, and to celebrate
your lives and the lives of your families
on our pages.
Thanks to our advertisers, without
whom we would be in deep doodoo.
Many of you really can't afford, in
today's economy, to support us the way
you do. You do so anyway because you
believe in the messages we put forth on
our editorial pages, and you trust us to
get the facts straight and without a liberal
slant on the news pages. Thanks so much
- we could not do what we do without
your help.
Thanks to the staff of the Journal.
If there is a more prolific writer in this
business than Terry Witt, I do not know
who that person is. Week after week after
week, this man keeps us in business with
his dogged pursuit of all sorts of stories,
and uses those stories to keep you
informed of the issues that affect you
the most. Assistant Editor Anna Suggs
combines the energy of youth with a
very passionate quest to learn all she can
about the newspaper business. Hers is a
selfless pursuit - many of the little things
you see in our paper week to week are
there because she works overtime to
ensure they get there. And she represents
the Journal with wit and charm, and with
a smile that defies description. We are
lucky to have her.
Kathy Hilliard is quite simply the
best proofreader I have ever seen, hands
down.
Ad salespeople Dana Beck and
Mandy Lockaby sacrifice in ways untold
to ensure our advertisers have a voice in
the Journal. Mother and daughter team
Lyn Riffle and Nikki Hyde deliver our
papers with a warmth unheard of in this
sometimes cold business.
Rene Moore and Dee Krauss
take customer service seriously, and
customers in Chiefland and Bronson can
no doubt see it in their smiles.
Mary Andrews and Kelly
Quatkemeyer work hard to keep
our business pages professional and
information, and Linda Cooper has
essentially rewritten the book on how to
be an efficient general manager.
This was all brought together by
one man - our publisher, A.D. Andrews
- who saw a need for a newspaper
that would counter some of the more
liberal viewpoints and tactics you see
in some of the area's weekly and daily
publications. The success of the Levy
County Journal is a direct result of his
dedication and determination. He is
among the more community-minded
people Levy County has ever seen,


and this publication is his gift to the
communities that exist within its borders.
Thanks, Mr. Andrews - you are
making a significant difference in our
communities.
i a I!

Democrats in Congress and White House


ignore private sector as recession continues


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

E very state in the union had an unemployment rate in
October that was higher than a year ago, and every
state has lost jobs over the course of the year.
Those grim facts were part of CNNMoney.com
story Friday that described the gloomy state of the national
economy and the deep recession that hangs over the United
States like a black fog.
The economic recession is worsening.
I am growing weary of the do-nothing philosophy of
President Barack Obama and the Democratic leaders in
Congress. They have done nothing to spurjob growth. I
blame the Democrats because they control every leadership
position in Congress as well as the presidency.
The nation's unemployment numbers are more disturbing
every time I look at them. The unemployment rate is the
highest since 1983, the year after I came to Chiefland for the
first time.
The total number of unemployed workers - those who are
seeking work and not finding it - has risen to 15.3 million
people, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
But the number of unemployed Americans is actually a
bigger number.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics said there were an
additional 2.4 million "marginally attached" workers who
'wanted work and were available for work,'and who searched
for jobs in the past 12 months, but were not counted because
they had not searched for a job in the past four weeks. The
term marginally attached describes the unemployed.
An additional 9.3 million people were listed as
"involuntary part-time workers." These individuals are being
forced to work part-time rather than full-time because their
hours were cut back or because they were unable to find a
full-time job. I consider them unemployed because they can't
support themselves on their families with part-time work.
If you add the three numbers together, the total
unemployed in the country is 27.3 million people, and I quite
honestly doubt the number covers everyone who is without a
job. Some people have given up and disappeared from the job
scene, perhaps driven into homelessness.
There is a juicy irony in all this misery.
At a time when the national economy is sagging under
the weight of a vast ocean of unemployed, Obama and the
Democrats in Congress are pushing a national health care plan
that could put a greater financial burden on small businesses,
and a "cap and trade" law that would tax electric companies
and electric cooperatives if they generate electricity with
fossil fuels.
One would think Obama and the Democrats would be
working to strengthen the private job market by giving small
businesses major tax breaks for creating new jobs and rehiring
employees that were laid off because of economic conditions.
The private sector of the economy is suffering terribly under
the policies of Obama and congressional Democrats.
They portray themselves as the party of workers in the
United States, the labor party. They see themselves as a
populist party that appeals to the common man. But the truth
is Obama and the Democrats are promoting the expansion of
taxation and the government work force at a time when doing
so will only discourage the small businesses from creating
new jobs.
The economy is composed not only of corporations, small
businesses, large businesses and government, its primary
component is people - warm bodies. The human factor in our
economy is the biggest reason we have yet to see an economic
recovery. People are reacting psychologically to the actions
of Obama and the Democrats. They can see that Obama and
the Democrats are geared to the expansion of governmental
programs and nothing else. They know the Democrats see
taxation as a way to implement their anti-business ideals.
They know the Democrats could care less about the national
economy, or at least that appears to be their attitude.
The U.S. Congress and Obama should be meeting
continuously to find ways to stimulate the nation's economy
and spur private job growth. Ending the economic recession
should be the sole obsession of Congress. Instead we see
Democratic leaders focusing on national health care and cap
and trade. It's a national disgrace. It's not that national health
care isn't an issue. Health care is a big issue. But the economy
should be the highest priority of Congress and the President at
this point in tme.
\'4


The Democrats have never been business-friendly. I
have been a Democrat for most of my life. I've noticed
business and industry have never been overly friendly to
the Democratic Party. The Democrats don't look for ways
to cut business and corporate taxes, or reduce the burdens
on business to stimulate the generation of money and jobs.
They seem to think that government is the solution to every
problem and that business represents a means of generating
tax revenue. They don't come right out and say they are anti-
business, but their actions speak louder than words.
Karl Heinrich Marx, the German philosopher, political
economist and communist revolutionary who is credited with
founding modem communism, adopted an anti-business view
of private capitalist societies like ours. He believed that the
rich and influential in the business class - the bourgeoisie-
would eventually fall and be replaced by a class of working
people where everyone was equal.
Marx's theory sounded good on paper to those who
heard it, but his theories proved to be a disaster. When they
were tried in the Soviet Union and China in my lifetime, the
strongest and most ruthless members of society rose to the
top and formed governmental dictatorships that ruthlessly
murdered the idealists who had promoted Marxism and its
utopian ideals. These dictatorships are Godless testaments to
the stupidity of the Marxist philosophy.
The United States undoubtedly has been built on Democratic
ideas and an almost utopian sense ofjustice. Everyone is
supposed to be equal under the law. The U.S. Constitution's Bill
of Rights protects us from the excesses of government and the
Marxists of the world, or at least it is supposed to. The private
business sector provides the bulk of the employment in the
United States. Small businesses are the bulwark of our Republic.
Without a strong private business sector, we are no longer the
United States that our founding fathers championed. We are
closer to the ideas advocated by Marx.
The current recession was undoubtedly caused by a
number of factors including two ongoing wars and corruption
in Washington that allowed giant real estate banks on Wall
Street to make billions of dollars in questionable loans, as
well as a poorly regulated commodities market that has
permitted gasoline prices to rocket toward the rooftops. Some
governmental regulation is always needed. The big real estate
banks needed more regulation. Obama has added some. But
the oil and gas industry need more government oversight to
bring down gas prices.
Congress also needs to create incentives to spur domestic
production of fossil fuels while it promotes alternative
energies. More domestically produced oil in the American
market will eventually lower the price at the gas pump.
The private sector in general needs help in this recession
to spur economic growth and job creation. Big tax cuts
would be helpful. It would send a signal to the private sector
that the Democrats in the White House and in Congress
haven't totally lost their bearings in this recession. It would
send a message to the private sector that the leadership in
Washington isn't planning to saddle them with more taxation
and rob them of the ability to create new jobs.
More importantly, a friendly gesture toward the business
sector would show that our governmental leaders aren't
a group of governmental zealots bent on creating a new
socialist society, or God forbid, a Marxist-style government
that disdains human rights and ruthlessly crushes anyone
who speaks out against it. Anything is possible when our
government goes out of balance and drifts too far to the left or
too far to the right.
When I suggest giving business incentives to stimulate
the economy, I don't mean forcing business owners to apply
for government grants or fill out long applications hoping
they can get a small piece of the tax pie. I am talking about
providing tax incentives for businesses to create new jobs.
And I am talking about big incentives that could cover a span
of five years or more.
1 would recommend that leaders of small businesses, big
businesses and corporate America be given an opportunity to
talk to Congress about what is needed to stimulate the private
economy from their perspective. Perhaps there are other
means than tax incentives to stimulate job growth. And let's
forego partisan politics. Don't just ask Democratic business
leaders for their input. Let's get everyone involved. And let's
do it right away.
The recession is destroying the private sector. I am hoping
the Democrats who run the country don't want that to happen,
but I am losyg faith.

Yankeetown Seafood Fest awash in sunshine, then storms


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The 29"' Annual Yankeetown Seafood
and Arts Festival brought sunshine and a
world champion clam chowder maker
to town, but Sunday was largely washed
out by heavy thundershowers.
"It rained hard for hours. It hasn't
rained like that since Francis (a 2004
tropical storm)," said Yankeetown
resident Ellen Klee.
Even the 1"' Annual Wubber Duck
Wace had to be postponed until Monday.
The Friends of the Withlacoochee Gulf
Preserve sponsored the race, with 392
wubber ducks competing for first and
last place.
The w inning duck belonged to Larry
Feldhusen of Yankeetown. He won $300
for his efforts. The last duck to float across
the finish line belonged to Corbe Feeney
of Yankeetown. He received $100.
Withlacoochee Gulf Preserve is a
413-acre wilderness preserve purchased

Talented Bolles squad ends Williston's season


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

In the immediate minutes following his team's 48-0 loss to
Jacksonville Bolles Friday in the first round of the state class 2B
playoffs, Williston Head Coach Derek Chipoletti had words of
praise.
About his team's successful season. About the offensive
line. About the Red Devil seniors. But mostly about the Bolles
Bulldogs.
"This program does all the little things right," he said. "That
is what we are striving to be. They are a real class act - the kids,
the coaches, and everything in between."
As if to justify Chipoletti's comments, a giant sign on the
visitors' concession stand listed the Bolles state championship
seasons: nine and counting since 1986.
Ask any of the Williston contingent who made the two-hour
trip to Jacksonville Friday, and they will likely say that another is
in the works for 2009,
Bolles was that good on this evening.
The Bulldogs led 21-0 at
More photos, Page 3 the end of the first quarter, .
41-0 at the end of the first 7f
half, and gave an army of freshmen their chance to see the field
during a second half that saw the game clock run continuously.
Williston showed flashes of the team that ran roughshod
through the regular season. Quarterback DJ King, one of three
signal callers who �aw action during the game, found a few gaping
holes during the game. Running back Dontrell Edwards bulled
his way for double-digit yardage. And freshman quarterback
Austin Chipoletti, the coach's son, showed remarkable poise and
accuracy throwing the ball. The Red Devils' offensive line gave
King, Chipoletti and senior quarterback Dalton Edwards.
"The offensive line performed a little better than I thought we
would," Chipoletti said. "We could not move anyone up front,
but we pass protected very good."
Bolles, meanwhile, looked practically unstoppable, scoring
on the first play of three different possessions. Bruising senior
running back Jawan Jamison led the way for the Bulldogs,
picking up 108 yards on only seven carries, while Jordan Garside
accounted for another 102 on six attempts.
Garside scored the final touchdown of the evening, a 73-yard
sprint late in the third quarter.
Williston defenders never gave up on the play, and never
gave up all night, another positive on a night full of negatives,
Chipoletti said.
"The kids never quit - they never have all year," he said. "So
we will take something from that."
Bolles will host Ocala Trinity Catholic (9-2) Friday in the
Class 21B quarterfinal round. Williston football Head Coach Derek Chipoletti discusses the team's loss after the

Chiefland defeats Bronson 45-42 in Tip-Off title game

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland's quick varsity boys' basketball team defeated
Bronson 45-42 in the Bronson Tip-OffTournament championship
Saturday, but they had to beat back an Eagle scoring surge in the
fourth quarter to do it.
Bronson missed a pair of 3-point shots in the final 30 seconds
that could have tied the game, but the Indians' defense never gave
the Eagles good looks at the basket. The Indians took control of
the ball and killed off the remaining time.
Eugene "Pee Wee" Carter, Chiefland's cat-quick guard, led
the Indians in scoring with 23, and Bronson's Zach Hamilton,
who hit four 3-point shots, three of them in quick succession in
the final five minutes, led Bronson's scoring with 14.
"Overall I was real proud of them, especially on man-to-man
defense," said Chiefland Coach Mike Beck. "We won the game
tonight because of our defense. They (Bronson) are a good inside
team and they are bigger than us."
The Indians switched to a zone defense late in the game. Beck
said the zone worked well except for the lapse when Hamilton
was given open looks at the basket and sank three quick 3-point
shots in a row to erode Chiefland's lead.
Chiefland was missing Trent Perryman, a 6-feet 3-inch
shooting forward. He had a family commitment. Beck game him
the night off.
Beck plays just 10 players. He said a lot of teams have 14, but
five of the players sit on the bench. He narrowed his team down
to 10, and he said they all know they will play.
Chiefland's 6-feet 4-inch Bo Beauchamp had to anchor the
, paint against two big Bronson players, Enrique Wiseman, who
stands 6-feet 4-inches tall, and Willie Ellison, who stands about
S 6-feet 3-inches tall and is stout, but quick.
Beauchamp and Wiseman each had 7 points, but Ellison was

Bronson Coach Aaron Haldeman said Chiefland outplayed

"We didn't start playing until the final two minutes of the
t i game," Haldeman said.

But it Was too little, too late. Bronson

Wiseman to win going away.
Eagles Head Coach Aaron Haldeman
said his team's ability to stop Taylor
County in the first half was the key to
the game.
"Our defensive effort in the first half
was very good," he said. "We played the
midline very well, and we just got after
it defensively." -.O
Haldeman credited Hamilton for
getting his team going on the offensive

Young Cedar Key team loses in consolation game


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Cedar Key's young varsity boys
basketball team was defeated 50-19 by
Taylor County Saturday night in the
consolation round of the Bronson Tip-Off
Tournament.
Coach Chris Beckham said his team
played hard and hustled but they couldn't
get their shots to fall throughout the
game.
"We hustled but we didn't shoot well
tonight and we threw bad passes the other
night," Beckham said.
The team attempted to get shots off the
pass, but Taylor County was playing with
an aggressive defense, double-teaming
Shark players when possible and keeping
a hand in their face to prevent good looks
at the basket.
Cedar Key also played relentless
defense and hit the boards hard on both


ends of the court.
But Cedar Key had six freshman
players, which means the team is in a
rebuilding year.
The team has quality kids who play
hard and are coachable, according to
Beckham.
Aaron Esposito led the team in scoring
with 13 points, followed by Hunter
Cannon with 4 .and Frankie Beckham
with 2.
Scoring by quarters for Cedar Key
was 4-3-6-6--19; Taylor County 14-18-9-
12-50.
The Tip-OffTournament is a preseason
event hosted annually by Bronson to give
Levy County teams a chance to compete
and hone their skills on the court.
Wins in the tournament are mainly for
bragging rights. The games are not part
of the regular season schedule and won't
count toward the regular season win-loss
record.

Bronson girls basketball start from scratch


By Rick Burnham
Editor

What a difference a year makes. Bronson girls
basketball coach Greg Hamilton hopes he can say that
again a year from now.
After they recorded double-digit wins two years
ago, the Lady Eagles managed only one a year ago.
But the first-year coach inherits a roster devoid of
significant experience, including three players who
have never even played organized basketball.
"We are still learning the basics," he said, watching
the team go through an afternoon practice last week.
"We only have two players who are returning from last
year's team. We are starting from scratch. Our goal is
to get better every day."
While the team may be short on experience, it
might very. well be long on athleticism, he said.
"We might be able to use that to our advantage," he
said. "We might be able to press a little bit."
The bad news is that the Lady Eagles were unable
to press any at all in their first game of the year, Nov.


16 against district foe P.K. Yonge. The good news
is that Bronson will not have to play the Blue Wave
again this season.
"They are the class of our district," he said. "They
are an exceptional basketball team."
Bronson rebounded in its next contest, beating
Cornerstone Academy 41-39 Nov. 18.
"I was pleased that they were able to win before
a good-sized crowd here in Bronson," Hamilton said.
"They were well supported - a good night for Bronson
girls basketball. Our girls played with a lot of heart."
Hamilton will look to seniors Angela Freeman,
Brittni Davis and Karrie Kelley to continue that trend,
along with starting pointing guard Sarah Trimm and
freshman Shaneka Sherman.
Other players include Luz Marrero, Almexis
Marrero, Terra McDaniel, Victeashianna Hinds, Shay
Sherman, Samantha Tilley and Shenese Greenlee. A
couple of players currently ineligible - Lossie Mitchem
and Crissy Cates - could also eventually see playing
time, Hamilton said.
When it all comes together - and Hamilton said that


sooner or later it will - things will get very exciting in
Bronson.
"I am excited about this year's program," he said.
"Last year ended with six girls on the middle school
and four girls on the varsity - 10 girls in the program.
This year we will have 40 girls in our program, at three
different levels.
"We are excited about what they are doing. There
are times this year where we will bring up some of
the younger girls to play on our varsity. Against P.K.
Yonge our highest scorer was an eighth grader."
The Bronson Middle School team has already beat
Bell's JV team, he said.
"We have a pretty tough schedule - we play
Williston and Chiefland, who are always pretty good,"
he said. "But they will be able to compete and probably
do very well."
As for the varsity and junior varsity, he added, only
time will tell.
"We have not played together as a group," he
said, "but we are learning together and working as a
group."

I was not here the last time a Levy
County team came home with a state
championship in football. Chances are,
I won't be here when they bring home
the next one.
Not unless the Florida High School
Athletic Association changes the rules.
That's the way I feel after having
witnessed Williston's game Friday
night against Jacksonville Bolles. The
defending champion Bulldogs won that
game 48-0, and there was really never
any doubt after the opening kickoff
who would come away victorious.
Bolles was bigger, faster and stronger
at most positions, and at a couple of
positions they had players who could
compete at the college level. Now.
So, how does this happen at a
high school with a certain number of
students registered to attend classes
there? Not how does this happen at a
school in a given year, but how can a
school produce such talent year after
year after year after year. How does
a high school graduate a quarterback
who goes on to star at a major college,


and then produce another a year later
who is just as good? Well, it helps when
the new guy is already playing at an
elevated level and decides to transfer
in from somewhere in Mississippi.
And then multiply that "luck" by 22
- one for every position on the football
field. That's how high school dynasties
are built.
Actually, the two championships
won in Chiefland were "built." Many
of the others around the state are
"bought."
Organized recruiting hurts high
school athletics.
Schools such as Williston, Chiefland
or Bronson have their stars come
through the system. Kelby Barber was
as good as any quarterback in the area
this year, but he has played his last
game in Bronson. Think the Eagles
have another gifted signal-caller
ready to take his place? Someone will
come in and play, and perhaps they
.will play well. But it's a far cry from
Trinity Catholic, where a student will
suddenly appear with a golden arm and
a resume.
Promising quarterback Brent
Slaughter of Chiefland hurt his knee in


2008 against Newberry, but appeared
ready to resume his career in 2009
after several months of rehab. When he
reinjured the knee in August, the town
collectively groaned - for Brent and
his family, and also for the Chiefland
program. Think Ajay Ulmer and his
staff had another four-star signal caller
ready to step in for Brent Slaughter?
Not hardly. They had to take another
offensive back and install him behind
center. Now you have two positions
affected instead of one.
So where do these schools get
their talent? Sadly, from schools like
Williston, Chiefland and Bronson.
Rumors have it that a very gifted
baseball player in Williston has been
asked to go play ball in Gainesville,
at that one particular school with the
initials. Ditto for a wonderfully talented
softball player in Chiefland.
Stay home.
I am sure there is a great deal of
pride on the campus of the Bolles
School, and on the prestigious campus
at Trinity Catholic, for the titles they
have won and the programs they have
put together. But the fans and the
boosters of those schools and a dozen


more around the state should not kid
themselves. They follow a different
set of rules than we do out here in the
farmland. You simply cannot compare
the two - like apples and oranges.
Hey, did someone say orange? As in
the color that the University of Florida
wears? The University of Florida that
plays Florida State this week?
The Gators and the Seminoles take
the field once again on Saturday, one
team with bigger aspirations than the
other. Tim Tebow and Co. are two wins
away from a national championship
game in Pasadena. Bobby Bowden and
his squad are not.
I am tempted to say that the two
teams will play it close for a half
before the Gators break it open with a
prodigious second half. Instead, look
for this to happen: the Noles' revolving
door defense will show its ugly face
early and often. Tebow will score at
least three times in the first half on his
way to a five-touchdown day.
Don't leave him in too long, Urban.
Heisman numbers are important, but
you guys have bigger fish to fry down
the road.

had played with the same level of intensity from the start of the game and
outcome would have been different.
He said the Eagles knocked down some big shots. Hamilton had four
three-pointers and Dustin Crutchfield had one.
But the Eagles couldn't buy a shot from the outside in the first half, while
Chiefland was steadily knocking down long two-pointers and occasionally
a three to expand its lead. Bronson's flurry of scoring was too little too
late.
Bronson stepped up its defensive intensity to a championship level in
the final five minutes, disrupting Chiefland's ball movement and offensive
scoring.
Haldeman said Hamilton hit a lot of big shots, but he can do better.
"You should have seen him in summer camp. He was shooting out of
his mind," Haldeman said.
The key to the remainder of the season will be' playing hard on both
ends of the court for the entire game, he said.
"We could be our own worst enemy if we let us," Haldeman said. "Our
district is tough. We have to beat the teams we can beat."

Bobby Prevatt, Aunt Lori Prevatt, and his
cousin Lauren Stalvey. Colton is the son
of Lance and Dana Langford.



FWC seeks public input

on captive wildlife rules
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has extended its deadline for the
public to participate in an online survey that will help
the agency develop new requirements for possessing
Class I, II and III wildlife. The survey began on Nov.
3 and has been extended from Nov. 24 to Dec. 7.
A limited response from the public resulted in the
extension.
The survey includes questions on whether Class I
and II captive wildlife owners' facilities should meet
local building codes and/or zoning requirements
and if wildlife owners should provide their Critical
Incident and Disaster Plan to their county's
emergency manager. In addition, the survey inquires
if people shipping or delivering live wild animals via
interstate or intrastate commerce should label such
packages. The label would list the name and address
of the sender and receiver and identify the number
and species of live wildlife in the shipment.
Class I wildlife include gorillas, chimpanzees,
lions, leopards, tigers and bears. Class II wildlife
include several species of small monkeys, small
cats, coyotes and wolves. Class I and II wildlife are
potentially dangerous to people.
The FWC also is asking for input on the licensing
requirements for hobbyists (those who possess
wildlife for personal use.and enjoyment) who may
occasionally exhibit or sell Class III wildlife.

Suwannee Valley Players holiday production, Dec.
4-6 & Dec. 11-13
Suwannee Valley Players announces the opening for
its upcoming production of Not a Creature Was Stirring
... Not Even a Moose, a comedy written by Pat Cook.
Editor JJ Games of the Herald Tribune makes sure to
use the holiday to his own advantage, whether it be to
expose a crooked mayor or sell a few more issues with
just the right angle. And he thinks he finds it when he
finds a letter from a small boy who "don't want no more
Christmases."
Delilah and Sarah, his assistants are equally cynical
until they find a "Wish Moose," a Christmas ornament
that grants their wishes. Do they believe? It is up to
Barney, the janitor, to show them how to develop the
Christmas Spirit. Wishes do begin to come true - with
hilarious consequences.
The show will open on Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. and have
shows on Dec. 5 at 8 and Dec. 6 at 2:30 p.m. The
following weekend the shows will be Dec. 11 at 8 p.m.
and on Saturday, Dec. 12, there will be a special matinee
at 2:30 p.m. with the evening show starting at 8 p.m.; on
Sunday the 131 the show will be at 2:30 p.m. Tickets for
Not a Creature Was Stirring are $10 for students (grades
p-k-12) and seniors (65 and up) and $12 for general
admission; under 3 admitted free. Bring the whole
family to enjoy this Holiday event.

GOD'S NOT ASL


As a young teen I was ambling across
my grandfather's back yard when I
commented, "Papa's shore got green
grass this year."
My little brother Heath, six years my
junior, stopped to wiggle his dirty toes.
"Soft too," he added, "Papa says he's the
first'n in the county to plant this fancy
new grass like what they got on a golf
course."
I whomped him with my plastic Wiffle
ball bat for no particular reason and took
off toward the storage barn. "I got me an
idea," I called.
Heath rubbed his cotton top and took
out after me, mostly just wanting to know
what I was scheming next.
"Where are all Uncle Joey's clubs," I
fumed, tossing out an empty golf bag.
Heath ducked and began working his
tongue over his silver front teeth. "You
'member," he recalled, "We cut the heads
off 'em to make spears for poking stuff."
I narrowed my eyes, remembering our
subsequent groundings, and went back to
my ransacking. We managed to find one
heavy-headed putter and a couple of old
striped golf balls.
After a while I plopped down on a
box of my Grandma's family china to
pitch my new idea. "We'll design our
own golf course!"
Heath's mouth gapped wide. He
listened breathlessly as I laid out the rest
of the details. He giggled the whole time
I spraypainted the outline of our first
green across Papa's back lawn.


"We can even use the house as a
backstop," I added, taking into account
its close proximity. Heath's eyes glassed
over as he marveled at such wisdom.
Since our Papa happened to be taking
a nap, I figured I'd show a little courtesy
and forgo waking him just to ask if we
could use his riding mower. I took the
keys down from his secret hiding spot
and drove it on over. I figured to be
through before he woke up anyway.
Lowering the blade fully, 1 cut out
a big circle. Meanwhile, Heath bent up
four spoons planting a plastic drinking
cup to serve as the hole.
Our partnership seemed to be going
pretty well, until the testing phase began.
Apparently, somewhere along the line
Heath had gotten the impression he'd get
the first putt. The little munchkin went
berserk when I snatched the putter and
whacked one. His glassy eyes turned to
flames, and he commenced wailing on
me like a prize-fighting attack kangaroo.
"Man," I thought, "He's got a lot to
learn about golf etiquette."
With the aid of the Wiffle ball bat I was
finally able to settle him down enough to
evaluate the results of our first putt.
"Not good," I announced, "Time for
plan 'B'."
Heath wiped the foam from the comer
of his mouth and looked at me sideways.
"That means go get the push mower,
dummy," I barked, rubbing the newly
forming knot he'd laid on my scalp.
With a pair of pliers we raised the


'Deborahi (,Debbie) 'lu ba6a andl (Rbert (,Bo6) Cannon
w'ou/ld fi@ to announce their engagement and fortficonming
marriage on Feb'ruary 20, 2010.

EEP, YOU
push mower's wheels until the deck
was plowing dirt, and then proceeded
to mercilessly skin that poor grass down
to the nub. Yet, even after the dust and
engine smoke cleared, the subsequent
putts rolled no truer. Inwardly I began to
blame it all on Papa and his fancy new
golf course grass.
Ever resilient, we scooted back to
the edge of a cotton field and teed up a
ball atop a rock to practice our drives. I
wisely offered to let Heath take the first
swing, wherewith he promptly shanked
one off the side of the barn. I admit I laid
a few dents in it myself before eventually
lifting up a picturesque shot down toward
that bare brown patch. We high-fived and
watched with delight, until it bounced up
and crashed through the master bedroom
window! A growl inside indicated we
had awakened a sleeping bear
Neither Heath nor I were interested
in another knot on our noggin, so we
dropped that putter and high-tailed it to
the bayou, where we hid until our mom
came and stole us away under the cover
of darkness. I hate to think of what Papa
Bear would've done if he'd have gotten
his paws on us. Of course you can see


KNOW
where he might be a little upset.
Do you ever wonder how God feels
when He looks down from His window
in heaven? We've made a pretty good
mess of His backyard too, you know. Not
to mention how we treat one another!
Maybe we're not as sure-fire smart as
we think we are, or getting away with as
much. God's not asleep, you know.
Papa used to have an old saying:
"There'll be hell to pay," and while God
doesn't use that exact phrase, He does
promise that judgment day is coming.
Don't fool yourself. (The Lord isn't really
being slow about His promise, as some
people think. No, He is being patient for
your sake. He does not want anyone to be
destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.
2 Peter 3:9 NLV).
But anyway- No bayou is dark enough
to hide our sins from the Lord. Are you
still putting along toward destruction?
Why don't you repent and give your life
to Jesus like Heath and I finally did?

PUBLIC NOTICE
STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
CONSOLIDATED NOTICE
OF INTENT TO ISSUE
PERMIT
AND AUTHORIZATION
TO USE SOVEREIGN
SUBMERGED LANDS
The Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection gives
notice of its intent to issue a
joint coastal permit (File No.
0289874-001-JC) and grant a
letter of consent and a public
easement to use sovereign
submerged lands to The City
of Cedar Key, Attn: Maggi
Funchion, P.O. Box 339, Ce-
dar Key, FL 32625, to build
three low-profile rock groins,
restore the adjacent beach,
construct a vegetated dune,
and renovate an existing der-
elict revetment. The three T-
head groins will be between
123 and 151 feet long, with
T-heads between 81 and
95 feet wide. The groins will
have elevations between +4
and +6 feet (MLLW), and will
be 6 feet wide at the top.
The renovated revetment
will have a crest elevation
of +8 feet (MLLW), and will
be covered by a sand dune
with a crest elevation of +9
feet (MLLW). The dune will
be planted with native sea
oats. Approximately 4,000
cubic yards of beach quality
sand from an upland source
will be placed in the project
area to construct the beach
and the dune once the sand
source is approved through
a minor permit modification.
Derelict concrete and steel
debris will be removed from
the project area. The exist-
ing stormwater outfall on G
Street will be extended ap-
proximately 170 feet to the
waterward end of one of
the rock groins. The activ-
ity includes consideration of
an application for a 50-year
sovereign submerged lands
public easement containing
76,529 square feet, more or
less.
The project is located in
the City of Cedar Key, at the
southwestern shoreline of
Way Key, along the south-
ern 800 feet of G Street,
between 1st Street and 4th
Street, in Section 32, Town-
ship 15 South, Range 13
East, Levy County. The proj-
ect is located adjacent to the
Big Bend SeagrassesAquat-
ic Preserve, Gulf of Mexico,
Class II Waters (prohibited
for shellfish harvesting).
A person whose substan-
tial interests are affected by
the Department's action may
petition for an administra-
tive hearing in accordance
with sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes
(F.S.). The petition must
contain the information set
forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000.
Because the administra-
tive hearing process is de-
signed to redetermine final
agency action on the appli-
cation, the filing of a petition
for an administrative hearing
may result in a modification
of the permit or even a de-
nial of the application. Under
rule 62-110.106(4), Florida


cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of
time. Requests for extension
of time must be filed with the
Office of General Counsel
of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000, before
the applicable deadline. A
timely request for extension
of time shall toll the running
of the time period for filing
a petition until the request
is acted upon. If a request
is filed late, the Department
may still grant it upon a mo-
tion by the requesting party
showing that the failure to file
a request for an extension
of time before the deadline
was the result of excusable
neglect.
In the event that a timely
and sufficient petition for
an administrative hearing is
filed, other persons whose
substantial interests will be
affected by the outcome of
the administrative process
have the right to petition to
intervene in the proceeding.
Any intervention will be only
at the discretion of the pre-
siding judge upon the filing
of a motion in compliance
with rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with rules
28-106.111(2) and 62-
110.106(3)(a)(1), F.A.C.,
petitions for an administra-
tive hearing by the applicant
must be filed.within 14 days
of receipt of this written no-
tice. Petitions filed by any
persons other than the ap-
plicant, and other than those
entitled to written notice un-
der section 120.60(3), F.S.,
must be filed within 14 days
of publication of the notice or
within 14 days of receipt of
the written notice, whichever
occurs first. Under section
120.60(3), F.S., however,
any person who has asked
the Department for notice of
agency action may file a peti-
tion within 14 days of receipt
of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail
a copy of the petition to the
applicant at the address in-
dicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any per-
son to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within
the appropriate time period
shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request
an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
A petition that disputes
the material facts on which
the Department's action is
based must contain the fol-
lowing information: (a) The
name and address of each
agency affected and each
agency's file or identifica-
tion number, if known; (b)
The name, address, and
telephone number of the pe-
titioner; the .name, address,
and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if
any, which shall be the ad-
dress for service purposes
during the course of the pro-
ceeding; and an explanation
of how the petitioner's sub-
stantial interests are or will
be affected by the agency
determination; (c) A state-
ment of when and how the
petitioner received notice of
the agency decision; (d) A
statement of all disputed is-
sues of material fact. If there
are none, the petition must
so indicate; (e) A concise
statement of the ultimate
facts alleged, including the
specific facts that the peti-
tioner contends warrant re-
versal or modification of the
agency's proposed action;
(f) A statement of the spe-
cific rules or statutes that the
petitioner contends require
reversal or modification of
the agency's proposed ac-
tion, including an explana-
tion of how the alleged facts
relate to the specific rules or
statutes; and (g) A statement
of the relief sought by the
petitioner, stating precisely
the action that the petitioner
wishes the agency to take
with respect to the agency's


forth above, as required by
rule 28-106.301, FA.C. Un-
der sections 120.569(2)(c)
and .(d), F.S., a petition for
administrative hearing must
be dismissed by the agency
if the petition does not sub-
stantially comply with the
above requirements or is un-
timely filed.
This intent to issue consti-
tutes an order of the Depart-
ment. The applicant has the
right to seek judicial review
of the order under section
120.68, F.S., by the filing of
a notice of appeal under rule

Suwannee soccer takes no mercy against Williston


Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

It was a rough Friday night for the'
Lady Red Devils soccer team. Whether
the team considered it merciful or not,
the 0-8 mercy rule was applied about
midway through the second half of the
district home game against Suwannee.
Suwannee maintained control of the
ball throughout most of the first half,
and despite the desperate efforts by the
ladies on the defense, the ball made
little appearance on Suwannee's home
turf.
The first and second goals were
scored by Suwannee's Jessie Tenbroeck,
1, during the first half. These were
followed by another two goals by
Suwannee's Shannon Wood, 5, in the
second half.
After the fourth goal, Williston
began to have a little bit more control
and to stay on offense; however, a
Muddled corner kick left Tenbroeck
open in the corner and able to cross the
ball in front of the goal for # 15 to knock
it in on Williston's keeper, Amanda
Hernandez.
The last three goals came in a quick
succession until the game was called.
Williston soccer Head Coach Max
Aguirre spoke to his team after the
game and told them that how they
practice is a good indicator of how they
will play.
"If you practice lackadaisical, you
play lackadaisical," he said.
The team had played five games
previous to the match against
Suwannee, four were losses and one


was a tie. Suwannee, on the other
hand, is 6-0.
Aguirre said the tie game Tuesday
night against Fort White was the best
he's seen the team play and he hoped
it would carry through to the current
game. Instead, he said they became
frustrated and let it get to their heads.
"When you play a game like soccer,
you can't dwell on what happened a
minute ago," he told the team. "That's
history. You can't dwell on it. You
have to learn from it. You have to pick
up the tempo. You have to pick up the
speed."
Player Roxanne Krause added, "We
really need to come out on the field
and forget about everything."
Aguirre credits the team's setback
to personality clashes between the
players, a young team, and having
several players out due to cheerleading,
which ended Friday night with the
football team's loss to Jacksonville
Bolles.
"Talent-wise, we're better and have
more potential than last year," he said.
"We're just not putting it out on the
scoreboards."
He said sweeper Chelsey Wright,
22, was the stand-out player of the
game.
"She's 100 percent wide open," he
said of Wright. "She's a smart player.
She gives you everything she has. She
has heart. She has the potential to play
at the next level."
He said as a team, the players need
to work on passing, communication
and learning how to make the runs.

Bronson soccer coach uses his mistake to teach responsibility

Coaches sometimes can turn defeat
into a positive learning experience for
their players.
That's the way it worked last Thursday
when the Bronson Eagles' girls' soccer
team lost 5-3 to Bradford County.
As it turns out, Coach Raymond
Powers had accidentally not scheduled
officials for the game. In the reshuffling
of the schedule, the officials were not
notified of the game. Bradford County
was agreeable to play a friendly game
without officials.
It was a standard high school soccer
match in every other way. Both teams
scored goals. Girls were knocked down
and kicked on both sides. They got.up
off the turf again. There were no serious
injuries. They- met in the middle of the
field afterward with smiles on their
faces.
But in the Bronson huddle after the
match, some of the young Lady Eagles
seated on the grass asked about the
bumping and kicking that went on.
Assistant Coach Wally Lake told his
girls, "In soccer girls, you're going to get
hit and kicked." He said it went both ways


in the match. Bronson dished out as much
as it took from Bradford County.
Powers told the girls it is important
to take personal responsibility for one's
actions. Powers acknowledged he was the
person who had failed to schedule officials
for the game and he took responsibility
for his actions and the oversight.
He suggested the girls do the same.
The girls became quiet.
"That's my confession," Powers
added.
The girls giggled.
Bronson has gotten off to a slow start
this year, but the match against Bradford
was one of its best efforts, despite the
fact the Eagles were missing three key
defensive players. Mariah Parkin was
out with an injury and Melissa Nutt and
Sara Shouse, both experienced defensive
players, didn't join the team until they
finished volleyball.
Lake said the matches will be much
closer in the future with Parkin, Nutt
and Shouse defending the Bronson goal.
But he said the Lady Eagles could have
beaten Bradford County if they had made
accurate shots when they had good looks
at the goal.
"If you count the shots we should have
made, we should have won," he said.
