Cedar Key received the "Rural Community of the Year Award"
last week from the United States Department ofAgriculture Rural
Development for its success in preserving a high quality of life in
the city while developing a healthy fishing and clam industry.
The award is given to one Florida community annually.
"The City of Cedar Key is an outstanding example of public-
private partnerships leading to economic and community
development benefiting its residents economically and socially,"
said Rural Development Acting Director Joe Mueller. "I want
to commend the leaders of Cedar Key and area citizens for the
many accomplishments that have been realized that benefit the
entire region."
Mueller presented Mayor Sue Colson with a plaque and
handed the Cedar Key City Commission a check for $164,000
to complete improvements to the Anchor Hole Boat Ramp and
parking area used by clam farmers to park their vehicles and gain
access to deep water.
The clam industry has grown into a major economic engine
in Cedar Key, but clam farmers were losing most of their
access points to the water and public. docks were too busy to
accommodate them. Rural Development gave the city $300,000

Sheriff's Colonel resigns amid allegations of favoritism


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Levy County Sheriffs Office Col.
Mike Johnson submitted his resignation
Tuesday amid allegations that he used
his influence to protect two of his adult
children who work at the sheriff's office
from allegations of wrongdoing.
In his resignation letter Johnson
cited health concerns arising from what
he called media attacks insinuating that
he had used his position to shield his
son Chuck Johnson and daughter Susan
Everett from accusations filed by co-
workers.
The allegations against elder
Johnson, who is second in command at
the sheriff's office, come at a time when
the sheriff's office is also being accused
of discrimination.
Sheriff Johnny Smith was contacted

hiefland finds

new fire chief

rry Witt
writer


After months of searching, Chiefland city commissioners
voted unanimously Monday night to hire retired Gainesville
firefighter James Harris as the new fire chief.
Harris, who began his career in Chiefland as a volunteer fireman
in 1978 and spent 20 years as a paid firefighter in Gainesville said
he was honored to be chosen to serve his hometown.
He met with the Chiefland firefighters last Wednesday and he
believes they found common ground.
"I think we found out we're the same old redneck firefighters
we always were," he said with a grin.
Harris will not officially take over as fire chief until Thursday
at the earliest or possibly later depending on what he works out
with interim Chief A.D. Goodman.
His starting salary will be $41,000. The city commission
agreed to raise his pay to $42,720 as soon as he earns his
Firefighter II certification and his Emergency Medical Technician
certification.
He estimated he can be certified as a Firefighter II by the end
of April, but he won't earn his EMT certification until late July or
August. He will be taking the first available courses. He allowed
his certifications to expire when he retired.
Harris will replace fired chief John Ward. The commission

Local legislator says


tough times ahead


By Rick Burnham
Editor


A budgetary storm awaits
Florida legislators in Tallahassee,,
according to the man who represents
Levy and nine other north Florida
counties. But Leonard Bembry also
says that the dark clouds contain
a silver lining for the state as a
whole, one that could pave the way
for sunny days down the rqad.
State legislators have begun
work on a budget for the 2010-
2011 fiscal year, which begins
July 1, Bembry said. He added
that the latest revenue estimates
for the period will present some
considerable challenges.
"We are going to be $3.2 billion
short in revenues from what was
projected earlier," he said. "It is
going to be pretty serious."
Bembry said legislators were
faced with similar challenges a
year ago, and chose to "move
things around" rather than actually
cutting them. This year will likely
be different, he said.
"We did less cutting and more
moving things around last year
- trying to 'set them up in such a
way that we would not have to
cut," he said. "I think this year the
leadership is going to get a real
opportunity to reprioritize where
the state is headed, because I think
we have to cut. Moving things
around is no longer going to serve
what we are going to have to be
addressing."
In order to make the most
effective cuts, Bembry said,
legislators should focus on the
services that actually "touch" the
citizens of Florida.
"We are going to have to go up
there and decide that if it doesn't
touch our people in a meaningful
way, if it is not something that
affects our lives, then we are going
to have to contemplate cutting
that," he said. "That can be a lot of
different ways. We could be talking
about "Florida Forever," buying
land. My opinion is that if you
can't meet your budget, you can't
pay your bills. And if you can't pay
your bills you ought not to be out
buying land. You and I wouldn't do


that."
Difficult times call for tough
measures, he said. He added that,
unfortunately, much of what he has
seen in Tallahassee just doesn't get
the job done.
"We are probably in the most
fragile economic times we have
had since the depression," he
said. "Every family is out there
struggling. There is not hardly
anyone who is not.
Every constituent I have sits
down every month and pays their
bills, and they reprioritize their
spending based on changes in their
income. I do that, you do that,
everybody does that. The state of
Florida is unwilling to do it, and I
have a problem with that."
Bembry said there is every
reason to believe that the state
will get through the difficult times
ahead.
"This state has one of the most
resilient economies of any state
in the nation," he said. "We are
the fourth largest economy in
the nation. Agriculture was the
king last year. It had more than
the tourism or business sectors.
So, tourism has kind, of let us
down, but we had agriculture
to pick us up. A lot of states did
not have that. A lot of states are
in a lot worse situation than we
are. California for instance is 20
something billion dollars in debt.
They are in trouble.
"We cannot adjourn our
legislature until we have a balanced
budget. And that is good."
The plan that emerges from
the budgetary process will
likely represent a more fiscally
responsible state, he said, and that
is good.
"We are going .to have an
opportunity to have a state that
is more fiscally conservative to
have a state that is more responsive
to the people it serves," he said.
"That will be good, because that
won't be a one-year situation. It
will take us into the future. So
there is a silver lining in this cloud
if we can just get through it, and I
think we can. We just need to be
a little more concerned about the
way we spend our dollars."

Suwannee River rising but

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A heavy rain event last week is
triggering an additional rise in the Suwannee
River, but the river is not expected to reach
flood stage at Fowlers Bluff, Manatee
Springs, Wilcox or Branford this week.
An El Nifio is warming the waters of
the Pacific Ocean off South America and
spawning rainfall about once a week in
Levy County. If additional rainfall comes
to the county, the river forecast will change.
Last week about three-quarters of an inch
fell in the area.
The Southeast River Forecast Center
in Peachtree, Ga. is forecasting the river
to rise to 4.3 feet by later this week. Flood


flood stage

stage is 5.6 feet. The river last Friday had
risen to 3.7 feet.
At Manatee Springs State Park, the river
level was 5.6 feet Friday and was forecast
to rise three-quarters of a foot to 6.4 feet.
Flood stage is 10 feet at the state park west
of Chiefland..
The river had risen to 8.4 feet at Wilcox
Friday but was expected to continue rising
to 9.3 feet by later in the week. Flood stage
is 11 feet.
At Branford the river reading was 23,7
feet Friday, but was expected to continue
rising to 25.1 feet by the end of the week.
Flood stage is 29 feet.
"Down where you are it takes several
weeks to get the river up," said Hydrologist
Willie Quillan.


Commission rejects Ocala veterinarian's exotic animal permit


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Ocala veterinarian Suzanne Billiar
lost her first battle with county
government Monday when the
planning commission recommended
denial of a permit that would allow
her and husband Brian to keep a tiger,
a bear, two chimpanzees and other
exotic animals on their property south
of Williston.
Commissioners voted unanimously
to recommend that Levy County
commissioners deny the special
exception permit she was forced to
apply for after the county twice fined
her for failing to obtain the permit
before bringing the animals to her
property in Small Farms subdivision.
Small Farms is zoned for a mix of
rural residential and agricultural uses.
Most of the land is divided into 3.5-
acre parcels. Eighty-five percent of
Small farms subdivision is developed
with, family homes. The county's land
development regulations allow exotic
animals to be kept in this zoning
category if the owner obtains a special
exception permit.
Billiar said she never obtained a
county permit because she believed
she needed only a permit from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission. The county has taken
the position that she violated .the
county's land development regulations
by bringing 45 exotic animals to her
property without a county permit.
Commissioner Tommy Harper said
burden of proof was on Billiar to show
that the animals in her compound were
no threat to people or agriculture, but he
said she failed to provide information
to make her case.


"There should be a lot of questions
in our mind whether this type of
operation is compatible with either,"
Harper said.
Billiar and her husband Brian
operate what they call a wildlife
sanctuary for endangered species. Most
of the animals are non-native species.
She drew attention to her operation in
March 2009 when she adopted an aging
lion, a tiger, a black bear and two adult
chimpanzees from an owner in Marion
County who could no longer keep the
animals due to financial and personal
reasons. All five are Class 1 animals.
They could be dangerous if they escape
their caging.
FWC examined Billiar's cages and
found they met agency requirements.
The agency gave her a permit to bring
the Class 1 animals to her property, but
the presence of the two big cats, the
bear and the two chimpanzees upset
many neighbors who had not been
told the animals were coming. FWC
says it doesn't notify neighbors before
granting permits to private property
owners.
The agency claims sole
constitutional authority to regulate
wildlife in Florida and says it has the
right to place exotic animals where
it deems appropriate, but the agency
is considering a new rule that would
give counties 30 days notice when
an application is filed for Class 1 and
possibly Class 2 animals. Affected
counties would be asked to express
any concerns they might have and
could enforce its land use rules if it saw
a problem. But the FWC rule has not
been finalized.
County officials believe the county
has the constitutional and legal authority
to regulate land uses in the county.


The state's Growth Management Act
gives the county authority to adopt a
comprehensive plan and enact land
development regulations to implement,
the plan within its boundaries. The
.county also says it has home rule
powers under the Florida Constitution
to enact its own local regulations.
Many neighbors showed up Monday
to oppose the special exception permit.
Several neighbors supported the permit
request along with about two dozen
exotic animal supporters.
Billiar and her attorney, Moises
Kaba III, of Hialeah, Fla., who said
he owns exotic wildlife himself, said
the negative decision by planning
commissioners was not unexpected.
"You can't expect to get a fair
and impartial decision in a political
environmental like this," Kaba said
afterward.
He has told Billiar she would have
a better shot of winning her case in
state or federal court. Kaba said FWC
has the "sovereign authority" to decide
where to place exotic animals, not the
county. He said the county's ordinance
is vague because it doesn't distinguish
between the different types of exotics.
Debra Jones is president of the
Williston Town Council but spoke for
herself, and said she doesn't question
Billiar's sincerity in wanting to save
and care for endangered species, but
she said Billiar didn't follow the rules.
"I think the place for a special
exception is before the animals come
not after the pens are built and a
complaint is on file," she said.
Jones took exception to Kaba's
argument that Small Farms was
predominantly agriculture. She said
the subdivision is for residential use.
"If you were, doing farming, we


wouldn't be here tonight," she said.
Mika Vuto, who said the big cat pens
are 35 feet from her property line and
100 feet from her home, said she didn't
object when Billiar moved smaller
exotic animals to her property, even
though the animals weren't supposed
to be there.
"We were pushed over the edge when
the lion, tiger, bear and chimpanzees
arrived," she said.
Mark Schwebel, who said he has
bought and sold real estate in four
states including Florida, disputed
Kaba's contention that real estate
values near the Billiar property would
not be affected by the presence of the
exotic animals. He said the animals
would basically render the value
of neighboring properties "next to
nothing."
"It's like living next to a topless
bar," he said.
Robert Manly, a neighbor who
supported Billiar, said he believes the
animals on the Billiar property are an
asset not a liability.
"In our backyard it is awesome to
see this and be educated," he said.
Charles Rondo said he could not ask
for a better neighbor than Billiar and
her husband Brian Davis.
"I find nothing at all offensive
about their place," he said. He added,
"They are in my opinion an asset to our
neighborhood."
David Hunn, another neighbor, said
at no time has the animal compound
been offensive and the noise is no
worse than the train that roars through
the area.
"I have no complaints with Brian or
Suzanne," he said.
The county commission hearing on
Billiard's permit request is set for 6:30

Former Chiefland Citizen


of the Year passes


Arthur Harland Foster was born in
Massachusetts on April 26, 1925 and
passed away Nov. 3,2009. He had served
in the U.S. Navy during WWII. After the
war he married Myrtie, and they were
married 64 years and remarried her again
on their 60th anniversary. Last year Art
had several bouts with pneumonia and
passed away on Nov. 3. He is buried
in Massachusetts. Art had five children
and many grandchildren and great-
grandchildren. A memorial service was
held for Art on Feb. 4 at the Belleview
Methodist Church in Belleview, Fla. not
far from their home in Summerfield,
Fla.
Art and Myrtie started the Tri-County
Outreach in their carport garage many
years ago. From there they opened up a
thrift shop on Park Avenue next to what
is now Drummond Bank, which was then
a Levy County State Bank branch. Next
they moved T.C.O. to North Main Street


across from the Methodist Church. They
had approximately 20 volunteers and
support from many churches.
They gave out food and Myrtie
would put someone up in a motel if
'they were down on their luck, or would
buy someone a lunch who was passing
through and was hungry, or put some gas
in a car. They housed furniture and such
for victims of fire. They sold clothes at
a minimal price and gave to those who
were in need. The monies always went
back into giving in other ways like light
bills or medicine; the list was endless.
Art and Myrtie did a lot to help folks
when we had the storm of the century
come through Chiefland and several
people were killed. Later the task at.
hand became too much for them and they
decided to move to be near their daughter
and wound up in Summerfield.

Sheriff's arrests


Deputies arrest man for possession of pot


Levy County sheriffs deputies arrested a Chiefland
man and charged him with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana, possession with intent to sell,
and tampering with evidence.
Ian R. Gardner, 43, of 325 S.E. Fourth Ave.,
Chiefland, was arrested at 10:33 a.m., Feb. 5, after
a deputy noticed he was driving on CR 345 without
a seat belt. A traffic stop was conducted and Gardner
said he.didn't even think about his seat belt and when
asked to produce his license and registration, he said
he didn't have his license.
When asked, he stated he had been arrested for
possession of marijuana and consented to a search of
the vehicle.
According to the arrest report, a pat down of the
defendant revealed $655 in cash in the front right
pocket in 20-dollar bills, one 10-dollar bill and one
5-dollar bill. A shake of his pants made a clear baggie
of a green leafy substance fall out of his crotch. The
substance, which weighed 5.8 grams, field-tested
positive for the presence of marijuana.
When Gardner was asked where he works,
according to the report, he responded that he didn't
have a job but sold a little reefer here and there.
The deputies drew the conclusion based on the
evidence of marijuana, the large amount of cash on
his person, and the defendant's statements that the
defendant was in possession of marijuana with the
intent to distribute. Bond $5,000.

Williston Rotary hears about Relay for Life


Event scheduled

for April7 17- 18

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The American Cancer Society will
host the Williston 2010 Relay for Life
April 17-18 at Williston High School
Booster Stadium.
Co-chairwoman Crystal Curl
and American Cancer Society
representative Nickie Kortus
announced the event at the Williston
Rotary Club meeting last week.
The relay will raise money to
support cancer victims and to find a
cure through research. The relay is an
all-night walk.
Teams of 10 to 15 people will
begin walking at 11 a.m. on Saturday,
April 17 and conclude at 6 a.m. on
Sunday, April 18.
The event begins with the
survivors' walk. The second lap is for
'the caregivers who care for cancer
victims.
Businesses, groups of friends, the
local hospital or anyone that can pull
together a team of 10-15 people to
walk the track all afternoon and all
night can participate in the relay. The
goal is to form 25 teams.
"The significance of walking


overnight is that cancer never sleeps,"
Curl said. "You spend 18-24 hours
without sleep. It's a big sacrifice you
offer up."
The relay is a celebration for
survivors, a way of remembering who
was lost and it gives the community
.a chance to fight back by raising
money, Curl said..
There will be a luminary service
to remember those lost to cancer and
grieve for those loved ones.
Curl said organizers are fired up
about this year's relay.
"It's going to be big this year,"
she said. "We're just rolling. We're
confident. I'm real proud," she said.
For those who are interested,
they can become a major sponsor by
donating $2000.. For $250 they cani
get a track market and, for $100 they
will be placed on the Friends of the
Relay list in the program.
"Please help us. It will be a super
time," Curl said.
Kortus said the American Cancer
Society is working to save lives and
diminish suffering. It is also working
to find a cure through research.
Residents can call an 800 number
to reach a staff medical person. The
number is 1-800-ACS-2345. They
can also go online at cancer.org to
find out the latest information about
research.
"The good news is the survival

rate is growing," Kortus said.
She said ACS does fund
scholarships for young people.
There is an American Cancer
Society Winn Dixie Hope Lodge in
Gainesville that provides lodging
for. cancer patients who travel to


the Gainesville area for outpatient
treatment.
Curl and Kortus encouraged
Rotarians to create a relay team or
teams of their own to help win the
fight against the disease.


Williston develops ordinance to regulate skateboarding


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


An ordinance prohibiting skateboarding in public
parking lots but allowing it in designated residential
areas is being developed by the Williston City Council
and its staff. The city currently has no ordinance
directly regulating skateboarding.
Council members gave City Attorney Norm Fugate
general guidelines on how to write the ordinance with
the aim of moving the skateboarders away from high
traffic parking lots and streets where they could get
hurt and limiting the city's liability.
Florida law exempts cities from liability if they
designate certain areas for skateboarding, or build
skateboard parks and require the participants to wear,
helmets to reduce the risk of injury. The law says
there is "inherent" risk of injury in this sport.
Williston skateboarders have in recent months
taken a liking to the 'parking plaza near City Hall
and they are not getting out of the way of vehicles
traveling through the plaza. They are also damaging
planted shrubbery.
The city built a skateboard park in one of its
parks, but Council President Debra Jones said the
skateboarders don't use it.
The city investigated the possibility of obtaining a
Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program
(FRDAP) grant, but the Florida Legislature did not
fund the program from July 2009 through June 30,
2010.
Whether the grant program will.be funded in the
coming year is unknown, but the Legislature is facing
large losses of revenue next year as well. The ongoing
recession is continuing to cut into tax revenues.,


City council members say they don't have the
money to build a skateboard park like the one in
Chiefland. The Chiefland City Commission built a
professionally designed park with metal ramps built
into a concrete foundation using a $175,000 FRDAP
grant. That was before the recession'hit.
Williston doesn't have that option for now.
FRDAP grants don't exist for the time being. The
city apparently doesn't have the type of skateboard
park the skateboarders would like to use, or it's in the
wrong location, or both.
"The problem is we do not have a facility," said
Mayor Gerald Hethcoat.
For the time being, Williston council members
want to designate skateboarding areas in hopes of
limiting liability. There is concern among some
council members that the city may be "opening a can
of worms."
Councilman Brooks Holloway asked the council
if they had read the Plantation, Fla. skateboarding
ordinance the city is using to guide development of
its ordinance.
The Plantation ordinance allows skateboarding
on bike paths along roadways adjacent to residential
areas where the speed and volume of traffic is low.
The ordinance says skateboarders will yield the
right-of-way to bicycles and all non-skateboard traffic
on designated sidewalks and bike lanes. Violation
of the ordinance would allow police to confiscate
the skateboard for no more than three days. Repeat
offenders would have their boards confiscated for up
to 30 days.
Holloway likened the ordinance to climbing Mt.
Everest.
Councilman Michael Shoemaker agreed with


Holloway.
"This is going to be opening a can of worms," he
said.
The council is planning to look at the ordinance
Fugate develops at their next meeting and decide
whether they support it.
In other business, council members voted to
approve a contract with Natural Gas Services of
Florida for consulting services to develop a natural
gas public -awareness program. The cost will be
$5,391.
In December 2002, Congress issued the Pipeline
Safety Improvement Act. In May of 2005 the
American Petroleum Institute issued a recommended
practice requiring all pipeline operators to provide
pipeline safety awareness materials to affected public,
emergency response agencies, local public officials
and excavators. The program was to be implemented
by June 2006, but never was adopted in Williston.
The consulting agreement with NGSF calls on
the company to prepare public education materials,
place advertisements, develop and maintain a list of
stakeholder audiences, monitor the effectiveness of
the educational materials and audit the plan annually
to ensure the city is meeting the safety'improvement
act's requirements.
City Manager Marcus Collins recommended
approval of the program. He said one accident
involving natural gas would cost the city far more
in liability than if the public education program is
implemented. Collins has a background in utility
operations from his work in other cities. Williston
operates its own gas and electric utilities.

Chiefland police try to clean up skateboard park fights


By Terry Witt
Stqff Writer

Chiefland's skateboard park has become a hangout
for high school age kids who want to fight.
City Police Chief Robert Douglas told
commissioners Monday five fights broke out last
week at the park and a woman in a wheelchair was
robbed by a masked man on the Nature Coast State
Trail behind the skateboard park.
Douglas said he took cigarettes away from some
of the kids and issued them civil citations.
"The little kids don't come anymore," he said. "We're
doing everything we can, but that's a hangout now."
City police are parking at the skateboard park
when they are not at calls.
Douglas estimated the age of the troublemakers at
18-21. Some of the young high school kids hang with
them thinking they will get beer and cigarettes.


Commissioner TeresaBarron, who spearheaded the
effort to obtain a state grant to build the professionally
designed skateboard park, encouraged the chief to
clean up the skateboard park atmosphere.
"I feel our department can take care of this so our
children can enjoy this again," she said.
In other business, commissioners voted to give
final approval to the annexation of 33 acres north of
Chiefland, site of the city's fewest water well.
Commissioners remain concerned about whether
the Nature Coast Regional Water Authority is still
planning to drill a well on the remaining 120 acres of
property adjoining the 33 acres.
The 120-acre site and the 33 acres were once
designated as a Chiefland Wellhead Protection Area,
but the Suwannee River Water Management District
says the 120 acres is under consideration as one
of the wells for the Nature Coast Regional Water
Authority.


A feasibility study is underway to determine,
among other things, where the authority would drill
its wells to provide water to Gilchrist and Dixie
Counties and Fanning Springs.
Commissioners congratulated city staff on
purchasing a bucket truck, with an extendablee 45-
foot long bucket for city use. It was purchased used
from the U.S. Marine Corps. The city also purchased
a 500-gallon stainless steel water storage tank for
emergencies.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy said the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life will merge Chiefland's relay
with Gilchrist County this year. The relay will take
place in early May at Trenton High School.
Pomeroy solicited $25 from each of the
commissioners, City Attorney Norm Fugate and
Douglas as a donation to the relay. Pomeroy said he
gave an undisclosed amount of money to the relay
independently of the commission.


Sheriff's office seminar focuses on prescription drug abuse


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


The words drug abuse and street
dealing often conjure images of cocaine,
marijuana and methamphetamine being
distributed by drug dealers.
But the distribution and illegal use
of street drugs is no longer the only
problem-law enforcement officers face
in the war on drugs.
SThe Levy County Sheriff's Office
recently hosted a seminar for law
enforcement officers dealing with the
abuse, diversion and illegal use of
prescription pharmaceuticals.
"There is an increase in the use
and misuse of pharmaceuticals. Law
enforcement is starting to focus on
this," said Landon Gibbs of Purdue
pharmaceutical company, which
provided the seminar.
Law enforcement officers from


several counties were taught how
to identify and investigate illegal
prescription drug diversion and sales.
They were instructed on the legalities
of prescription drugs and how
prescriptions can be written to avoid
forgeries.
Purdue recruited experienced law
enforcement officers to travel the
country teaching other officers about
prescription drug diversion, pharmacy
thefts and other methods used to divert
legal drugs into the wrong hands.
The problem began in the 1970s,
but it is growing.
"New drugs are coming out each
day and if people can abuse them, they
will," Gibbs said.
Steve Lampros 'of the state's
Children and Families agency, who was
part of the seminar, said 70 percent of
the cases the agency handles in the tri-
county area involve drugs and alcohol.


When he was a detective for a law
enforcement agency, 13 arrests resulted
from one prescription that had been
abused.
Many people wrongly believe that
prescribed medicines can be legally
shared with family members or friends
because it is a legal medicine.
"It is completely illegal to borrow
or share these drugs," Gibbs said.
One favored technique for drug
abusers to obtain multiple prescriptions
for the same drug is to go doctor
shopping. The doctors ,don't know the
patient has been prescribed the medicine
at a different doctor's office and they
gave the patient a second prescription.
Purdue has created the RxPatrol
website that serves as a national
information clearinghouse and database
for pharmacy crime. It was created in
2003 as a cooperative effort between
industry and law enforcement to collect,


analyze and distribute information that
can assist law enforcement investigators
with pharmacy crimes.
RxPatrol disseminates information
about unique pharmacy crime
incidents, including streaming video
and closed circuit television photos of
suspects, when available. RxPatrol
alerts law enforcement agencies to
incidents within their municipality and
neighboring communities so that they
can assess potential crime trends and
patterns.
Officers at the Levy County seminar
were told about RxPatrol and how to
use it as an investigative tool. They
need only log in to gain access to the
database.
As of Feb. 8, RxPatrol recorded
5,331 incidents in the database, 1,289
robberies, 1,846 fraud cases, 917
forgeries, 943 burglaries and' 103 cargo
thefts.


Cedar Key, from Page 1A


to build a parking area and the city Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA) chipped in $150,000.
The latest grant completes the facility.
Mueller noted that Cedar Key excels at planning for
quality of life improvements and establishing partnerships
with agencies like USDAthat benefit the city economically.
He said the Rural Community of the Year Award is given
to communities that exhibit these qualities.
"I would say Cedar Key is the best example we have
seen in quite a while," Mueller said.
Andrea Dennison, who coordinated' the awards
ceremony for the city, said one of the quality of life
projects the city completed was to replace city street
lights with hooded lamps that direct light downward,
thus preserving the view of starlit nights in Cedar Key.
The island city has an annual Starry Night event at the
state museum for star gazers.
Dennison said USDA came down last year as part of
the town's visioning process. USDA officials were given
tours of the city to show how the city was putting to use
its federal funding. But the statewide award caught the
city by surprise.
"We're not even sure how we were nominated, but
we're happy we were," she said.


CRA Director Greg Lang said the city has a $2
million USDA grant pending that would improve the
city's water and sewer systems, fire flow and water
treatment plant. Some of the city's water and sewer
lines are 80-plus years old, he said.
USDA is aware of the problem with the aging pipes.
The city is keeping its fingers crossed that the grant will
be approved.
"I'm very impressed with them as an agency," Lang
said.
. Leslie Sturmer, aquaculture extension agent for the
University of Florida, said USDA's National Institute of
Food and Agriculture has been extremely supportive of
the clam industry in Cedar Key.
The agency has funded research on breeding hybrid
clams that can survive Cedar Key's summers. Last year,
the industry sustained a huge loss of clams when a plug
of fresh water came down the Suwannee River during
a time when the clam-farming waters were very warm.
The combination of high water temperature and low
salinity killed the clams.
USDA has also funded soil assessments to determine
the best underwater soils to grow clams and plant clam
seed. The agency also gave the aquaculture association


in Cedar Key salinity monitors to best determine where
clams should be grown.
Mueller said Cedar Key has taken advantage of many
of USDA's grants and used them to improve the clam
and fishing industry and improve its water and sewer
system. The city's sewer system treats the effluent to
"right at" drinking water standards and hauls.most of
the effluent to dry land outside the city.
Colson said the city is moving, toward becoming
a "green city," using environmentally-friendly
technologies like recycling to improve the quality of
life in the community. Her husband came up with the
idea for a new aqua-colored sign that will be erected
anywhere the city starts an environmentally friendly
project. Colson's husband reasoned that aqua is a
combination of green and blue. Green represents the
environment and blue symbolizes the waters where
aquaculture thrives, the perfect symbol for the green
projects in the island community.
Colson said the city is extremely proud of the USDA
award.
"I think everybody here knows we were number
one. It's just nice to receive the recognition from one of
our partners," she said.


Teacher, from Page 1A

Middle/High School teacher Jennifer
Bray.
Bray told Beauchamp they loved the
way Beauchamp connected with her
students.
"She's 'very well-rounded; not only
on campus but in the community," Bray
said.
Beauchamp was humble when
accepting the bouquet of flowers from
Hastings.
She said she was already honored to
be selected as Chiefland Elementary's
teacher, and then to be chosen as one of


the top three was even more of a surprise.
"Wow! We've got a lot of good
teachers," Beauchamp recalled thinking
about being selected. "Then when I got
into the top three.. .wow!"
"What this means is that you represent
all the good teachers," Hastings said.
"They're all over the county."
Although Bray, Armbrister and Smith
said it was a tough decision choosing
between Beauchamp, Dupont and Gordon,
Beauchamp represented what they were
looking for in a Teacher of the Year.
She participates in various activities,


not only the fourth grade, but with
yearbook and safety patrol, Armbrister
said.
And, of course, she handled her
classroom well, they said.
"The kids were very aware of what she
expected," Armbrister said.
"And she accepted everyone's answer,"
Bray said.
Beauchamp credited her success at the
school to Principal McCully's openness
and creativity, and McCully said she
wasn't surprised to learn Beauchamp
earned the title.


"She is able to bring the curriculum
alive. She connects it to their life. She
connects it with their world," McCully
said.
For earning District Teacher of the
Year, Beauchamp will be presented with a
$1,000 cash reward, $250 of which will go
to her school, by Macy's department store,
which sponsors the statewide Teacher of
the Year process.
Beauchamp will go on to represent the
Levy district in the Florida Teacher of the
Year selection, which will be announced
in July.

Local high school cancer survivor speaks to middle school


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

By the end of the school day Friday, all Chiefland
Middle School students had heard the story of a
young cancer survivor who, just a few years before,
haqd walked through the same halls and attended the
same classes as them.
Chiefland High School senior Taylor Carey was a
special guest speaker during the middle school Junior
BETA Club's two-and-a-half week-long fundraiser
Pennies for Patients, which raises money for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma society to fund research
and provide free information and support services.
Carey was diagnosed with leukemia on St.
Patrick's Day 2003, when he was 10 years old and a
Chiefland Middle School student.
Julie Gerhard, Chiefland Middle School language
arts teacher and Junior BETA Club sponsor, invited
Carey to speak to classes after a short video about the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society was shown at the
school's library.
"We're hoping to educate the kids so they'll know
more about the cause and get out in the ,community,"
she said.
Carey's story was shared to bring a more personal
touch to the presentation.
Carey said he always played sports as a young
child and then one day he started having pain in his
legs and shortness of breath. When it continued, his
parents took him to the doctor, which is where his
mother remembered that he had a rare blood type and
that raised a red flag for the doctors to help diagnose
his leukemia.
Carey told the students that during his
chemotherapy he would usually spend about two
weeks in the hospital and about a week at home


before going back to the hospital. His mother left her
job to spend time with him at the hospital.
At one point, he had to take 21 pills every day and
gradually he was able to take all 21 pills at once.
Carey said he went into remission around age 13
and the doctors gave him a 2 percent chance of the
cancer ever coming back.
"They think that it's done, pretty much forever,"
he said.
Because the cancer episode affected his heart, he
had to get a pacemaker, but other than not being able
to play sports on a team, Carey said he is basically a
normal high schooler now.
Living through the ordeal made him "completely
open to talk about it," he said. It even gave him a
different attitude.
"It gave me a more positive outlook," he said
because "good things came out of it."
Through the American Cancer Society, he was
able to attend ROCK Camp, Reaching Out to Cancer
Kids, where he made lifelong friends.
Carey said when he graduates from Chiefland he
wants to attend either the University of South Florida
or Santa Fe College to earn a degree in business.
But before that happens he is spreading the word
about foundations like the Leukemia and Lymphoma
Society's Pennies for Patients and the American
Cancer's Society's Relay for Life, which he
participated in last year and said he plans on walking
in again this year.
Gerhard said Pennies for Patients has been
wonderfully accepted at the middle school. After only
three or four days of collecting, about $200 has been
raised at the school.
She said the program is all about the fact that
every penny donated matters.
"We have children who don't have money but

shares his story of leukemia survival with
Chiefland Middle School students at the mid-
dle school library Friday. He was invited dur-
ing the Pennies for Patients fundraiser.

they want to give," she said.
"Our kids really care. We have a very special
group. They want to relate to someone and help."
The middle school will be collecting money for
Pennies for Patients through Feb. 19. Gerhard. said
anyone outside of the school who wishes to donate
may do so at the school's office.


Superintendent reads to Bronson students for LiteracyWeek


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Third graders at Bronson
Elementary were taught two ,very
important lessons last week during
a special visit from School Board of
Levy County Superintendent Robert
Hastings.
The first lesson was one that was
reiterated all week long thanks to
Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida.
The statewide event was celebrated.
in Levy County schools to teach
students that reading is the foundation
of knowledge and education.
Hastings, in observation of


Literacy Week, read one of his favorite
children's books, "Mr. Peabody's
Apples," to Marlene Wiggins' and
Rebecca Fries' third grade classes Jan.
27 which led to the second lesson.
The book, written by Madonna,
is the story of how false rumors
can spread in a small town and how
difficult it is to take back something
that's already been said.
"That's a very important message
in that story," Hastings told Ms.
Wiggins's class. "You have to be very
careful of what you say."
Hastings said reading to children is
one of his favorite things.
"I get to be with kids instead of

'adults all the time," he said.
The reading was just one activity
of many the school held to celebrate
Literacy Week.
Bronson Elementary also held a
book drive, poster contest, favorite
bookvote, book-based door decorating,.
book bowl competition and more.
Dozens of fictional characters
wandered about the campus all day
Friday, during Character Dress-up
Day, when teachers and students were
invited to dress up as their favorite
characters from their favorite books.
These activities were held all
across the county, said School Board
of Levy County Coordinator of School


Improvement Kathy Lawrence.
Literacy Week is an event the state
Department of Education promotes
and the district sent in plans to also
participate, Lawrence said.
"We were excited just to participate
and see all the events go on in Levy
County," she said.
Lawrence also read to students
at Bronson Elementary. Her reading
happened to fall on Pajamas Day,
when the students were allowed to
wear their favorite pajamas to school
for a reading party.
"It was a lot of fun and a lot of buzz
and a lot of enjoyment," she said.

Fire Chief, from Page 1A
had offered Ward a new contract with
slightly higher pay last year if he changed
his attitude toward commissioners.
Some board members felt he was too
confrontational in city commission
meetings. Ward felt he was worth
considerably more pay and didn't feel
he had done anything wrong. He turned
down the job offer from the city for a
new contract and commissioners voted to
terminate him.
Harris will be on probation for at least
six months and possibly as much as a year
depending on how well commissioners
think he is doing. He will be evaluated at
six months.
He will be able to ride fire trucks and
fight fires until he earns his certifications.
Former Chiefland fire chief Billy
Careccia withdrew his name' from
consideration two weeks ago. He had been
the preliminary favorite. On a straw vote,
all five commissioners voted to keep him
as a finalist. He was the only candidate to
get five votes.
But commissioners changed their
mind two weeks ago and decided to add
three more names to the list of finalists.
The .original list of finalists included
Harris, who had gotten four votes in the
straw vote, and Randall Sides, a station
fire lieutenant from the Holley-Navarre
Fire District. Paul McDavid, Kenneth
Williamson and David R. Dobryzinski
were added to the list.
Careccia, who works as the training
and recruitment officer for Gilchrist Fire
Rescue, said he was nbt offended by the
commission's decision to expand the list
of finalists, and the board's decision had
nothing to do with his withdrawal.
"I just decided to stay here with the
way the economy is and everything,"


Careccia said. "I talked it over with my
wife. It was a hard decision."
Harris got high marks from City
Investigations, Inc., which interviewed
people who knew him as part of the
background check.
Calvert Brown, a Cedar Key firefighter
who works for the Gainesville Fire
Department, told the private investigators
he has known Harris personally and
professionally 20 years and worked with
him directly for 10 years at the Gainesville
Fire Department.
"Mr. Brown stated that he really got
to know the applicant during the 10 years
when the applicant was his lieutenant at
the Gainesville Fire Department, and that
everyone loved him and did not want
him to leave when he retired after 20
years in 2005," the investigative report
said. "Mr. Brown stated that he knew
that the applicant was well experienced
as a Paramedic/EMT and was someone
you wanted with you on a call with mass
casualties."
The investigative report quoted Brown
as saying that Harris was an excellent
supervisor known for making sound
decisions and he had great respect for
him.
Frank Drummond told the private
investigators he had known Harris
personally and professionally for many
years, but. worked directly under him
for 1 V2 years prior to his retirement in
2005. Drummond described Harris as
a knowledgeable officer, a team player
and got things done administratively on
a timely basis.
Commissioner Rollin Hudson
brought the investigative report's positive
description of Harris to the attention of
commissioners.

Hollywood w


is one big


freak show

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I officially do not understand
Jennifer Aniston. First she fails
to return a single one of my
emails to her, and then she takes
Brad Pitt back following his breakup
with Angelina Jolie. She takes Brad
Pitt back, knowing that I am available.
Hollywood has a way of warping
people's minds.
I was thinking about Jennifer
Aniston the other night while
thumbing through the channels,
and then I came upon the Grammy
Awards, and that made me forget all
about Jennifer Aniston. Two singers
Elton John and somebody named
"Lady Gaga" opened the show
with a duet, and they both had dirt all
over their faces and dressed like you
wouldn't believe. Just imagine if the
two of them showed up in Chiefland
looking like that. Checking out at
Wal-Mart or Winn Dixie.
"Elton, I forgot to grab a can of
green beans. Could you go get one
for me?" And soap, Elton. Grab some
soap because the two of you have dirt
all over your faces and are dressed
like you belong in a freak show.
Later in the show, another lady, this
one named Pink, got dressed up in a
roll of masking tape and jumped in a
giant sling. They dipped her in a big
bucket of water and then hoisted her
over the audience, the water dropping
off and falling down like a human
sprinkler system.
Later, the people she dripped on
went home and took three showers
because they got dripped on by water
that dripped off Pink.
Sometimes I just think that
Hollywood has lost its collective
mind.
Take actor Rip Torn for example.
He "allegedly" got drunk last week
and broke into a bank with a loaded
gun. His attorney said the actor
thought the bank was his home. I for
one can see how that might happen,
because my home has drive-thru
tellers and an ATM machine outside,
and I mix them up all the time.
Britney Spears shaved her head.
Tom Cruise jumped up and down on
Oprah's couch and professed his love
for his girlfriend. David Hasselhoff
got drunk and made his daughter
videotape him eating a hamburger in
the bathroom. Michael Jackson held
his baby out over the ledge of a hotel
balcony. He also bought a chimpanzee
and they started hanging out together.
Cheryl Crow wants us all to start
using one square of toilet paper per
trip to the bathroom.
What in the world.
Gwyneth Paltrow named her
baby Apple. Courteney Cox named
hers Coco. Casey Affleck has a son
named Indiana August. Jason Lee
named his boy Pilot Inspektor. Frank
Zappa named his son Dwezel and his
daughter Moon Unit.
Can you imagine the following
announcement? "And now the
moment you have been waiting for
the 2010 Bronson High School
homecoming queen is ... Moon Unit
Zappa."
Back to Jennifer Aniston more
- specifically back to Brad Pitt and
Angelina Jolie. I am going to start
sending emails to Angelina to see
if she wants to go out. Maybe we
can meet at BubbaQue's or down in
Cedar Key for dinner. If I impress her
enough, maybe we will become an
item and she will start wearing a vial
of my blood around her neck like she
did with Billy Bob Thornton. And I
can get to wear a vial of hers around


my neck. And if we have a young'un
we can name him Lugnut or Hash
Browns. Or Sprinkler Head.
And then we will fit in. Just not
here in Levy County. Or anywhere
else on the planet, but Hollywood.

Obama and Congress' energy policy


is to bury their heads in the Arabian sand


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


P resident Obama seems mystified as to why the
national economy is ailing, but perhaps he hasn't
visited the gas pumps in a while.
Obama gets all his travel gas free of charge,
courtesy of the taxpayers. It's one of the benefits of being the
president.
I suspect if he had to buy his own gasoline or diesel at the
local convenience store he would be more empathic with the
rest of us who have to buy it at the pump.
The price for regular gas averaged $2.70 in Florida on
Feb. 1, but it's about five cents higher in many areas of Levy
County.
I was talking to my favorite citizen-economist over lunch
Thursday and he agreed fuel prices are a big part of the
current recession. If gas prices were reduced by $1, it would.
cost me half as much to fill my gas tank.
My citizen-economist friend noted that the $12 I would
save at every fill up at the pump could be spent on something
else like buying a window for the house, buying clothing,
perhaps going out for a meal.
More money would flow through the economy if gasoline,
prices were back to some realistic level, but the politicians in
Washington, Obama included, are pretending high gasoline
prices are no big deal.
We are in a leadership drought in Washington when it
comes to energy policy. The president is supposed to offer
leadership on issues like this. Instead he pretends an energy
crisis doesn't exist. Congress isn't any better.
The Democrats no longer have control of the Congress.
The Senate belongs to both houses now and neither of the
major political parties is offering legislation to increase
domestic production of oil and natural gas.
If I had to guess why, it's because the pseudo scientists
of the world are predicting a calamity from global warming,
Both parties have apparently bought into this celebrated
theory of global warming. The theory says too much carbon
is being emitted by fuel- guzzling vehicles and by electric
generating plants. The carbon is forming an invisible layer
in the planet's atmosphere that traps heat from sunlight and
makes the planet warmer.
You probably could never convince my parents of global
warming. Last summer was a cool one in Wisconsin. It never
got much above 70 in June and July. The temperature finally
crept over the 80-degree mark in August. But the months of
December 2009 and January 2010 were cold in Wisconsin.
My dad figures the ice thickness on lakes in his area of the
state is about 16 inches.
Even if global warming were true, Obama and the
Democrats, as well as Republicans, have to take a step back
and consider the ongoing recession before they dive into
this brave new world of green energy. We need to increase
domestic production of oil and natural gas and break our
dependence on foreign fossil fuels before we go green.
We don't need foreign countries telling us how high our
gasoline prices should be in the United States and we don't
need any more wars to protect our foreign oil interests. We
need to produce our own oil and natural gas from known
reserves within the boundaries of the United States. It makes
no sense to do anything else.
Once we have severed our ties with foreign oil and
natural gas producers, we do need to look seriously at slowly
converting the entire economy to non-carbon energy sources
such as solar energy, hydrogen power, nuclear power and
other known sources of natural energy, including the wind.
Obama and the U.S. Congress have buried their heads
in the Arabian sand. They aren't being hurt by the oil and
gas prices because they live rather well off taxpayer dollars
and can charge their travel expenses to the taxpayers. They
don't see the tremendous damage being done to the national
economy by high energy prices. They don't have the courage
to do the right thing.
The citizen-economist I talked to isn't a fan of Obama,


but he noted that the Republicans aren't offering any
solutions to the economic problems of the country or to the
energy problems of the country either. The American public
has lost faith in the country's leadership. Obama's popularity
is falling like a rock.
I would take comfort in the factthat congressional
elections will take place in November, except I don't see
any members of Congress offering anything in the way of
common sense energy policies. To be honest, the only person
who has offered anything that I would agree with is Sarah
Palin, who ran for vice president with John McCain in 2008.
Palin's mantra was '"Drill baby drill," and I think it
resonated with a majority of Americans, but people were
so fed up with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan I think they
were unwilling to support McCain. Palin's "Drill Baby
Drill" mantra got lost in anger about the wars and the failing
economy.
I think it probably is time for our first woman president,
and unfortunately, Hillary. Clinton has too much baggage
from Obama and her husband. I think she endorses their
party platforms to a tee. I think Palin may be what we need
in a woman president. She is someone who would hopefully
open a very serious public dialogue with Congress about the
need for energy independence first, followed by the need
to develop alternative green energies once we are energy
independent.
I am hoping Palin is not wedded to the testosterone-
driven macho rhetoric we too often hear from presidential
hopefuls, who beat the war drums to show they are tough
enough to do what it takes to protect the United States. We
do need a strong national defense. We need to keep the
Armed Forces fully armed and sharp for battle. We need
a president who has the guts to act but the prudence and
intelligence to consider all options before pulling the trigger,
regardless of whether they are Democrats or Republicans.
I would like to see Palin get the job of president, mainly
because she seems to have a more common sense approach
to an energy policy. I am quite sure she would have excellent
advisors. All Republican presidents have great national
security and military advisors. It seems to go with the
territory.
Palin will have to advance her fossil fuel policy as she
campaigns for office. I think she is going to run. At least
that's my impression: Obama won't get my vote in 2012. He
appears to be anti-free enterprise and appears to be oblivious
to the dangers of implementing policies that could raise fuel
prices even more. He appears to support high gasoline and
diesel prices at the pump. His economic policies infuriate me
because they are not dampening the recession.
To be clear, I think any increase in domestic oil and gas
production has to be accompanied by strong new regulations
limiting the price of gasoline and diesel fuel. The idea that
oil and gas are private commodities whose price range
should be driven by greed in the market is what moved gas
prices to $2.70 per gallon. I still believe that gas and oil
prices need to be regulated and controlled and I think energy
in the United States should be considered a national security
issue, not a personal playground for wealthy to dabble in on
commodity exchanges.
A friend of mine prefers to keep the oil and gas industry
private. She suggested to me an alternative. She said if the
U.S. Government would provide major economic incentives
to oil and gas companies to drill within the boundaries of
the United States, she thinks it would encourage additional
development of oil and gas in this country. If startup
companies were to jump at the chance to drill in the United
States, it might force the Exxon's and the Mobile Oil's of
the world to compete with the startup companies. I think all
the known reserves for oil and gas in the Gulf of Mexico,
Alaska and the contiguous 48 states should be wide open for
drilling. Energy independence and much lower prices at the
pump wouldn't be far away.
The national economy would heal much faster, and we
could buy some time to develop green energies without more
economic turmoil.

A tale of two loves


Two Bronson couples share secrets to lifelong love

Story, photos by Tara Massagee '* -
Correspondent ..


The gold band has rested delicately
on her tiny finger for over 60 years. It
stayed on during the birth. of her four
children, 10 grandchildren and 17 great-
grandchildren, and she plans on keeping
it wrapped around her finger forever.
On Feb. 13, Erma, 81, and Jack Hicks,
83, of Bronson, will celebrate their 66th
wedding anniversary.
Each year people look for love around
Valentine's Day, but for two local couples
cupid's arrow has already pierced their
hearts.
The Hicks, along with another
Bronson couple, Lonnie, 86, and Linnie
Goodson, 78, have each surpassed 60
years of marriage. The couples attribute
their success to love, communication
and faith.
For the Hicks, what started as a grade-
school crush has grown into a life-long
partnership.
It all started back in the fourth grade
when Jack said he first noticed Erma.
He said when they were going to
school, the class was split depending on
the grade level.
He said he sat on one side of the
classroom while Erma sat on the other.
"He started winkin' at me," she said.
"I guess I liked it."
It was not until years later when Erma
and Jack started dating. She said she had
to wait until she was 14 to date.
On their first date they drove to the
drive-in in a model A car. Jack, with
a grin upon his face, said they always
went to the drive-in because "you could
sit closer that way."
Not long after they started dating,
Jack and Erma were married by a justice
of the peace in Everglades, where they
are originally from.
"World War II caused us to get
married," he said. "We had to do it fast."
He said he was about to be drafted into
the military when he decided to enlist
in the Navy. He said he went ahead and
enlisted so he could have a choice as to
what branch of the military he wanted to
be a part of.
"We wanted to get married before he
went into the service," she said.
Once he signed on with the Navy, the
Hicks were relocated to Jacksonville.
Erma said she worried about Jack a lot
while he was away from home, and that
they wrote letters to each other often.
After two years of service, Jack came
home and decided to start a family with
Erma.
"It was beautiful, natural, to raise a
family," he said. "That's what you get
married for."
The Hicks said they believe the reason
they stayed together so long is because
of love and communication.
"Love is the main thing. Love never
fails," he said.
Erma said there has to be
communication. "Always be ready to
communicate and talk things over," she
advised.
Debra Grant, one of the Hicks'
daughters, said "Daddy has always
called Momma his good thing."
In 1962 the Hicks moved from south
Florida to Bronson. Jack said he found
Bronson when he got a job building
roads in Cedar Key in 1954.
Since 1962, Jack has worked for
Florida Rock and also had a fertilizer and
service, before deciding to retire. Erma
giftshop in 1978 and ran it until 1982,


Erma and Jack Hicks also live in Bronson and will be celebrating their 66th wedding anniversary on
Feb. 13, the day before Valentine's Day. They too attribute their many years of marriage to love and
faith. But Erma said communication is also a key. The picture they are holding was taken after the
birth of their son Larry. Erma was 21 and Jack was 23.


Linnie and Lonnie Goodson have been married for 62 years and live in Bronson. They said they
believe their success comes from their faith and love. The picture they are holding was taken shortly
after they eloped in 1947.


spreader
opened a
and then


she opened a children's nursery in 1992, Nanna's
Place.
Grant said the nursery was named in her mother's
honor. She has "hundreds of grandchildren who
think she's their Nanna."

Love and Faith Through the Years

For Linnie and Lonnie Goodson, they are each
other's one and only true love. Neither has ever
dated anyone else.
The Goodsons have been married for 62 years.
Linnie said she met Lonnie through her brother.
Her brother, and Lonnie were good friends and
she first met him when he came by her house one
night.
"I didn't pay him much attention," she said.
He wrote letters to her and she would not answer
them.
Lonnie said each time he came by her house to
bring, her brother by, "I'd keep my eye on her."
i Soon after, they started dating and IAonnie


proposed.
Linnie said they were driving along one night
when all of a sudden Lonnie decided to pull over.
She said Lonnie said he. had something he had to
ask her.
"I wasn't even thinking' nothing like that," she
said.
It took a few weeks before Linnie was able to
give him an answer. She said she eventually wrote
him a letter saying yes, she would marry him.
Because Linnie was only 15 at the time, they
had to elope and get married in Georgia on Oct.
26, 1947.
She said her parents did not find out they
were married until after they had come back
from Georgia. She said they were not upset with
her because she comes from a big family and she
guessed it did not matter that much.
"It was the old days, but Momma and Daddy
both accepted him real good," she said.
Once they were married, they had their first
child, a girl in 1949.
Lonnie said he was on top of the world when
their daughter was born.
Following their first child came three more
children, eight grandchildren and 16 great,


grandchildren.
Before deciding to retire, Lonnie worked for
the International Paper Company in Bronson for
29 years, and Linnie worked for the Division of
Forestry for 30 years. She worked in the fire tower
and had to climb to the top of the lookout almost
every day. She said she wanted to keep working
for another five years, but she lost her leg in 1990
because of blood clots and her doctor insisted she
retire.
That was about "the worst thing that's ever
happened to us," she said..
Patricia Goodson, one of the Goodson's
daughters, said her "daddy has been real good
about taking care of Momma." He has "lovingly
cared" for her, -she said.
The Goodsons said they put their faith in God
and believe he is the driving force between their
everlasting love.
Linnie said they trust the Lord and put their
problems in his hands.
Lonnie said it makes him feel good to know the
Lord has kept them together for so many years.
"Thank the Lord for putting us together and keeping'
us together," Linnie said.

Levy boys' teams bow out of districts


Bronson guard Raymie Powers dribbles through P.K. Yonge defenders
on the way to the basket.


PK too much

for Bronson

By Rick Burnham
Editor

For one brief, fleeting moment
Monday, Bronson hung with mighty
P.K. Yonge getting to within a point of
the 19-7 Blue Wave in the first round of
the District 5-2A playoffs at St. Francis
in Gainesville.
That was midway through the first
quarter, when Enrique Wiseman's free
throw made it 7-6 in favor of the Blue
Wave with 4:11 left. But then P.K. Yonge
went on a 17-0 run, taking the air out of
the Eagles and their fans, and erasing
any perception that perhaps it might be
an evening for an upset.
Devin Wilson scored 16 points
and Tyler Courson added 15 as the
Blue Wave won 63-28 to advance to a
second-round matchup with Bell, which
beat Chiefland 55-45.
To their credit, the Eagles never
gave up. Wiseman battled an array of
P.K. Yonge big men inside to finish with
eight points, and the pair of Bronson

Bell gets past

Indians again

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Okay, we get it. The Bell boys'
basketball team is better than
Chiefland.
For the third time this season, the
Bulldogs beat the Indians, winning 55-
45 Monday to advance in the District 5-
2A playoffs at St. Francis High School
in Gainesville.
But, for the third time this season,
the final outcome was in doubt for the
vast majority of the game.
Chiefland took a 14-13 lead moments
into the second quarter, and remained
in front until the 6-minute mark of the
fourth, thanks in large part to the play of
Pee Wee Carter, who finished with 34
points in game. Carter needed 31 points
to surpass, the 1,000-point mark in his
career at CHS, finishing with 1,003.
Carter scored all of Chiefland's first-
quarter points as the Indians forged
a 12-11. The junior guard hit a pair
of three pointers, along with four free

Suwannee County shocks


Williston in district finals


The Williston Red Devils on Friday looked like
a championship caliber team as, they rolled over
Bronson 68-23 on senior night.
If it had not been for the mercy rule, the score
would have been much higher for Williston. The clock
ran continuously in the second half.
But if the Red Devils win a state championship
this year, they would be rewriting the sports history
books in Florida. They would almost certainly have
the worst record of any state champion.
That's because of what happened two weeks ago.
The Red Devil players were stung by news that the
Florida High School AthleticAssociation had stripped
the team of 18 wins this season because an ineligible
player had been part of the team. Williston went from
a 20-5 team to 2-23 following the Bronson win.
It wasn't the fault of the players. Athletic directors
are responsible for ensuring student athletes have a
high enough grade point average to play. The school
turned itself in for the violation.
Coach Steve Faulkner is using the calamity as a
motivational tool to inspire his players. He told them Williston's Lateria Walker and Suwannee

The third time's a charm, at least for Suwannee
County.
But for Williston, Saturday's loss in the District 5-
3A title game was anything but charming.
Suwannee avenged two regular-season losses
to the Lady Red Devils with a 51-50 win before a
smallish crowd at Santa Fe High School. The Lady
Bulldogs let a first-half, double-digit lead slip away,
but converted six straight free-throw attempts in the
final two minutes to take the title from a distraught
Williston team.
The loss leaves the Lady Red Devils with a trip
to Wildwood for a Region 2-3A quarterfinal matchup
with the Lady Wildcats on Thursday, while Suwannee
returns home to face Ocala Trinity Catholic.
If not for Suwannee's successful free-throw
shooting in the final moments of Saturday's game
- and Williston's inability to hit their own shots the
quarterfinal matchups might look very different.
Williston led 48-43 with two minutes left and began
a four-corners style stall game to keep the ball away
from Suwannee County. The Lady Bulldogs managed
a steal, however, and converted that into points when
Kristiana Evans hit an 8-footer with 1:55 left. Evans
led all players in the game with 16 points.
Suwannee then stole the ensuing inbounds pass

Jordan White has been out in front of Deonte Welch for as long as some can
remember in Williston, opening holes for the fleet-footed running back to dance
through on the way to the end zone.
On Feb. 3, they sat side-by-side, signing scholarship offers to take their games
to the next level.
Welch, a 5'11", 181-pound "athlete," will attend the University of South
Florida in Tampa, and play receiver. He will major in Sports Management. White,
a 6'4", 330-pound lineman, will attend Florida International University in Miami
and play defensive tackle. He will major in electrical engineering.
The players signed their offers in the Williston High School gymnasium before
a large crowd of well-wishers including friends and family and more than 100
fellow students.
Afterward, both players said they were happy to be headed to college and
satisfied with their destinations. Welch said his choice came down to USF or the
University of Arkansas. He said both schools offered great opportunities, but
chose USF because of its proximity to Levy County. He added that Aaron Harris,
a WHS graduate and senior defensive lineman for the Bulls, also had an impact.
"They both offered basically the same thing, but South Florida was closer to

Baker returns as the head football coach atWHS


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

The defense will stay. The offense will go. And
what is old is new again at Williston High School.
Former Head Football Coach Jamie Baker has
resumed his former responsibilities following the
departure of first-year coach Derek Chipoletti, who
will move to Bradford County to become the head
coach there.
Moments after setting up a ceremony for two WHS
players to sign scholarships to in-state universities
- Deonte Welch to the University of South Florida,
and Jordan White to Florida International University
- Baker reflected on the satisfaction that comes with
seeing Red Devil players succeed in life.
"Things like this are what makes thejob enjoyable,"
he said. "I was so glad that I was able to come in and
get this set up for these kids."
`" Baker said he told Williston principal John Lott
that 'he needed three days to ponder resuming the
head coaching duties. He added that it didn't take that
long.
"From the minute they offered it to me, I entertained
Scholarships, from Page 1 B


the idea strongly," he said. "I told John .to give me
three days and let me pray about it for three days
and talk to some people. He told me about the job
Thursday night and I called him Friday night and said
'God didn't need three days. He is pretty clear about
what he wants me to do. I will take the job.'"
He said the job as football coach allows him to
minister to the needs of the community..
"I didn't think I missed it, but when I began to
entertain taking the job, I realized that there were a lot
of things involved in the job that I did miss," he said.
"I try to treat the job as a ministry, and this gives me
the opportunity to get back here and do that."
Baker said he will switch a few things on the field,
but added that a complete overhaul is not needed by
any means. The team will return to a triple-option
offense, abandoning the spread attack, Chipoletti
brought with him. Baker said D.J. King, who ran the
offense as a sophomore two years ago, will likely take
the reins from graduating senior Dalton Edwards.
Baker said he will employ the same defense
Chipoletti installed..
"It is something I considered doing for several
years," he said.

banquet in January 2009.


home," he said. "I liked their
environment down there, and I look up
to Aaron Harris."
Welch's mother, Christie Little, was
among the dozen or so family members
present for the signing. She reflected on
the many years spent watching her son
play sports. She said her son's attitude
and drive are what set him apart.
"I am very excited for him," she
said. "We have been doing sports for a
long time, since he was about five years
old playing T-ball. It feels really good
to see him going to the next level, to get
a degree."
White said FIU was an easy choice.
"They have a nice campus, a good
academic program, and the coaches are
good," he said. "It is just an all-around
nice place."
White's mother, Zipora White, said
her son has made great strides over the
years, not only in size, but mentally as
well.


"He has come a long, long way,
especially with his attitude," she said.,
"As he got older, the attitude changed.
with his size. I am very thankful. He
is getting a free education it is a
wonderful feeling."
White's father echoed those
sentiments.
"Every parent wants to see their son
succeed, and if he participates in sports,
every parent wants to see their son go
to the next level," Sammy White said.
"It is real exciting, and I am real proud
of him. We could not ask for a better
outcome."
New Williston Head Coach Jamie
Baker knows both players, having
coached them prior to the one-year
stint of former coach Derek Chipoletti.
He said they secured their futures by
excelling both in the classroom and on
the field.
"There are a lot of guys who look
like Jordan and run like Deonte all


across the country," he said. "Many of
those guys do not get to sit here in front
of their friends and family because they
do not do the things that are necessary
outside of this gym and away from that
field. That is why these two guys are


able to sit here today.
"The one thing we do have a choice
over is our education and the effort we
put forth in the classroom, and that is
what these guys chose to do that a lot of
other guys didn't choose to do,"

Chiefland softball team hoping for big season


Interim coaching staff

will lead Lady Indians

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

They are confident, this band of Lady Indians,
almost to a fault. Asked how many games they will win
in 2010, they answer in unison, without hesitation.
All of them. Even against Branford? Against St.
Francis? Against Williston?
All of them.'
Interim Head Coach Ginger Fuller has simpler
goals. Fuller, along with husband Randy, and veteran
coach Brian Gore, will step in for the ailing coach
Wayne Weatherford. Ginger said the biggest objective
is to win the District 5-2A title.
"We want district," she said. "We want district, and
P.K. Yonge is standing in the way."
Fuller said the Lady Indians have hit the field with
a vengeance in the early days of practice, working on
fundamentals and getting ready for the home opener,
Tuesday against Bell.
So far, she said, so good.
"Fundamentally, they are about as strong as they
can be," she said. "They are playing better right now
than they played at the end of last season."
Fuller said that the team is starting anew, with
every position open for challenges.
"Positions are earned and lost every day every
single day," she said. "Just because a girl is a starter
on Monday doesn't mean she is going to be a starter
on Friday."'
Fuller added that the team is putting emphasis on
what the players do when they are away from the
softball field.
"We are putting a big hit on academics," she said.
"We are also-putting-a big hit on supporting the other
sports, such as the baseball team, and middle school
baseball and softball."
Chiefland has undergone a few personnel changes
since last season. Starting pitcher Brittany Davis and
infielders Shelbie Hastings and Rebekkah Wilkerson
have graduated and moved on, while Charissa Morris
is participating in a nursing program and will not
play.
But plenty of experience returns for the Lady
Indians.
Taylore Fuller returns for another year behind
the plate, and could see some playing time at other
spots in the infield, her mother said. Senior shortstop


Members of this year's Lady Indians' team take time out to pose for the camera. They are
(foreground) Kalyee Ecker, (second row) Mercedes Jenkins and Janessa Barrios, (third row)
Amie Biehl and Christen Trail, and (back row) Taylore Fuller and Shelbie Mills.


Amie Biehl also returns for Chiefland, as do pitchers
Christen Trail. and Amber Richardson. A freshman,
Mychayla Franklin, will also see some time on the
mound.
"Michayla was originally going to be on the
junior varsity, but she got moved up," Ginger Fuller
said, "She is working out really well. She is coming
on stronger than I thought she would."
Amber Depew will likely be a pitching factor later
in the season after she recovers from an ankle injury
suffered during basketball season, Fuller said.
The coach raved about the efforts of her outfielders
during practice.
"We have a phenomenally strong outfield,"
she said. "Kaylee Ecker, Lyndsey Stalvey, Hailey
Gerhard and Janessa Barrios have been practicing
hard and look great."
She also had words of praise for Kaylin
Hastings.
"Her effort has been over the top," Fuller said.
"She has been laying out for balls during practice."
Chiefland's offense begins with junior Taylore


Fuller, who led the state in batting average as a
sophomore a year ago. Her supporting cast may be a
little quicker than a year ago.
"We are going to have a lot of speed on the bases
this year," Ginger said. "If a team doesn't know how
to defend a slap hitter, then we are going to use it."
District 5-2A loses Williston, which moved up
to District 5-3A, but competition is still around -
particularly in Alachua County.
"P.K! Yonge and Branford are probably going to
be our toughest competition," Fuller said. "Our No.
1 goal is to win the district. No. 2 is to get some of
these girls into college programs."
This year's varsity squad includes Amie Biehl,
Taylore Fuller, Kaylee Ecker, Mychayla Franklin,
Mercedes Jenkins, Lyndsey Stalvey, Shelby Mills,
Christen Trail, Danielle Kearns, Hailey Gerhard,
Janessa Barrios and Amber Richardson.
The team will hold a'barbecue fundraiser on the
softball field Feb. 26. Tickets are $10 each and must
be purchased by Feb. 21. They can be bought at the
school or from a softball player.

Chiefland's Head Coach Mike Beck speaks to his team during a timeout. Beck
said the Indians played well this season, and will have as much experience re-
turning next year as any team in the state.

throws and an acrobatic 8-foot jumper in the lane to give his team a
one-point edge after one period.
Carter picked up where he left off in the second quarter. After
Bell's Chris Wilkerson connected on a short-range jumper to put
the Bulldogs up 13-12, Carter hit two driving layups and two free
throws to put the Indians up 18-13. Carter had accounted for all of
Chiefland's points with 5:43 left in the first half.
Bell guard John Bailey hit a 10-footer to make it 18-15, but
Chiefland got a pair of free throws from Bo Beauchamp to make it
20-15 with 2:16 left.
Stevie Woodby hit a pair of free throws to narrow the gap to
20-17, but Carter came back with a layup and two free throws of
his own to give Chiefland a 24-17 advantage with 39 seconds left
in the half.
Wilkerson closed out the half on a high note for Bell, hitting
a pair of 3-point shots the second at the buzzer as Bell got
to within one at 24-23. Wilkerson hit five 3-pointers in the game,
finishing with 17 points.
Chiefland Head Coach Mike Beck said his team had pondered
paying special attention to Bell big man James Thomas on the
inside, but changed strategies when Wilkerson began to connect
from long distance.
"We had thought about going to a 'triangle and two' against
them, fronting him (Thomas), but when 5 (Wilkerson) started
making threes, we knew he would just stand out there wide open,"
he said. "We knew we could not do that."
Chiefland maintained its advantage throughout the third quarter,
thanks in large part to Carter, who hit a bank shot a minute in to put
Chiefland up 26-23. He added a free throw before Bailey hit a 3-
pointer to make it 27-26 Chiefland with 5:40 left in the third.
Beauchamp connected from inside moments later, but Woodby
countered with a 10-footer for Bell.
Pooh Minnifield hit a 3-pointer for Chiefland and Carter added
a free throw to make it 33-28. Marquis Greene would add a layup
and Carter a 3-pointer, while Bell would get a layup from Bailey
and a free throw from Matt Stevenson to make it 38-31 with 1:15
left in the third quarter.
That's when Bell put together a 13-0 run a spurt stretched
between the third and fourth quarters to take a 44-38 lead. A
pair of Wilkerson 3-pointers keyed the run, and four points from
Thomas added to it.
Carter came back with a 3-pointer with 2:43 left in the game, but
Bell got nine points from Thomas down the stretch to win going
away.
Beck said he was encouraged by the progress his team made
during the season and, with a full roster full of players coming back
next year, the future looks bright for Chiefland basketball.
"We have 52 points coming back next year," he said. "There
are not a lot of teams in the state of Florida with 52 points coming
back. They are all juniors and they are all coming back. Basically,
they are all the same team, with a year of experience. We have some
things to work on, but I think we learned a lot this year."

Where to hunt spring turkeys without a quota permit


If you weren't lucky enough to get drawn for a spring

Red Devils run to 21-point win over Bronson JV


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston's junior varsity boys
defeated Bronson 78-57 Friday
night behind Tre Wilson's 28-point
performance for the Red Devils.
Wilson gave the partial Williston
fans a thrill late in the game when a
missed shot bounced high off the rim
and he caught it in midair and slam
dunked the ball.
He could have stuck both elbows in
the rim on the dunk. When he hit the
floor it was electric. Fans thundered
their approval.
"For the next, four years I'm going
to watch him play basketball," Coach
Jerone Greenlee said. "He's good."
Greenlee said the team's hustle wpn
the game.
"We hustled real hard," he said.
"They didn't have the players to keep
up with us."
The Red Devil JV team finished
the'season with a 14-2 record. One of
the losses, was to Bronson earlier in
the season when Wilson, a freshman,
wasn't playing. He had been moved
up to the varsity.
Greenlee moved Wilson back down
to the junior varsity for the Bronson
game. He said Wilson wasn't a full-
time varsity player and was the age of
a junior varsity player.
Bronson finished the season 15-2.
Its only two losses were to P.K. Yonge
and Williston.
Coach Kenny Thomas had nothing
but praise for his team and their
season.
"Overall I'm proud of my guys.
They played their hearts out," he said.
Thomas was upset that Wilson had
been moved down from the varsity
just for the Bronson game.
"They'll do anything to win,"
Thomas said.
Bronson's big man, Devaughn


Jenkins, had to sit out most of the
second period with foul trouble.
Without the 6-foot 7-inch eighth
* grader, Bronson had no rebounding
strength. Williston took over.
"They went after my big man,"
Thomas said.
Thomas lost three of his big men late
in the season to grade problems. That
left him shorthanded for rebounding.
Jenkins' foul troubles made the problem
worse.
The addition of Williston's Tre
Wilson was the final factor that broke
Bronson's back.
"The big man they moved down; he
was the big difference," Thomas said.
Bronson and Williston were tied
after the first period. The two teams had
battled fiercely to dominate on defense.
The lead changed hands more than a
dozen times.
Williston pulled away in the third
period when Damian Strange hit two
3-point shots and Dadrian Graham
hit one 3-pointer over a three minute
span, giving the Red Devils a 52-43
advantage. The score was 57-47 going
into the fourth period.
The 3-pointers appeared to take the
wind out of the Eagles and they seemed
to lose hope when the point spread
ballooned to 15.
Thomas said he noticed the same
thing. He said young kids have a harder
time coming back from adversity. But
he was proud of their effort.
"I'm very proud. They did show a
lot of heart," he said.
Scoring:
Williston Tre Wilson 28, Orvil
Stone 18, Damian Strange 12, Dadrian
Graham 10, Michael Hair 6, Fabian
Samuels 2, Tyus Williams 1 and Darren
Sims 1.
Bronson-Ben Landon 14, Devaughn
Jenkins 11, Tavarius Thomas 9, Heyden
Bedford 8, Alex Bauder 8, William
Baex 4, J.J. Roe 2, Chris Saxon 2.

Jordan White, Raheem Mentor and Deonte Welch join coach Steve


"I've come to grips with it," Faulkner
said. "Records are for the people in the
stands. I told the kids every goal we set is
still possible."
Williston's goals are winning the
district, winning a regional championship
and winning a state championship.
"All three are still there for the taking,"
Faulkner said.
The score of the Williston-Bronson
game became lopsided early. Bronson fell
behind 18-0 even with many of Williston's
starters on the bench in the first period.
The entire starting lineup in the first period
was seniors. Williston was missing starting
point guard James Monroe who was out
with an injured ankle. He transferred from
Jacksonville a.month ago.
Williston has a habit of being extremely
aggressive on the boards. It's one of the
Red Devil's assets. The Bronson game was
no exception. There were always three Red
Devils hovering around the rim when the
ball missed its mark. The ball quickly flew


down court for fast break points.
Bronson is a school less than half of
Williston's size. Bigger schools have the
advantage of being able to choose from a
larger talent pool.
Faulkner said his team played pretty
well, but he said there was a difference in
the talent level between the two schools.
The Red Devils are loaded with talent this
year.
How far they go in the playoffs will be
determined by the players.
Scoring:
Williston Deterion Ross 3, Deonte
Welch 9, Paul King 2, Larry Debose 6,
Kelcey Coleman 3, Tony James 6, James
Hunt 7, Raheem Mentor 11, Issac Floyd
15.
Floyd also had 9 assists, 7 rebounds, 4
steals and 3 blocks.
Bronson Matt Olavarria 12, Thomas
Mitchem 6, Enrique Wilson 5 and Dustin
Crutchfield 5.


Williston senior cheerleaders Katey Henson, Shelby Brooks and
Veronyca Shaudt Were recognized on senior night. (Terry Witt)

Chiefland routs Newberry for sixth consecutive win

Staff Writer

Chiefland High School's varsity boys routed
Newberry Saturday night to close the season out with
a 63-45 win on the road.
The Indians were' led by point guard Eugene "Pee
Wee" Carter's 31 points and a merciless team defense
that swarmed around the ball and dominated the
defensive boards.
It was the sixth consecutive win for Chiefland.
Chiefland jumped out to a 14-11 lead in the first
period and continued to expand it every period
while keeping Newberry at bay until the final buzzer
sounded.
The only stumble was in the final five minutes
when the Indians attempted to run time off the clock
and gave up the ball on several occasions when
Newberry's trapping .defense surrounded the ball
handlers.
Chiefland's turnovers led to points for the
Panthers.
"We played well. We're still learning the mastery
of how to slow play at the end," Coach Mike Beck
said.
He said the team executed its offense and got those
10 easy baskets needed to win the game.
Chiefland runs'an offense that sets picks to give the
open man shots. The team doesn't mind pressuring the
ball on defense to get steals and fast break buckets.
The Indians ran into foul trouble with their two big
men once again. Bo Beauchamp and Marquis Greene
have had that problem in several games.
Beck said 30 rebounds are needed to win games.
Chiefland got 29 rebounds. Beauchamp and Greene
were in the thick of the battle,
"The kids still did a great job of rebounding," Beck
said.
Beck said his players have been keeping one
statistic that he had never heard of, but which seems
to matter to them.
Chiefland won at Newberry's senior night.
"We've spoiled four or five consecutive senior
nights. I'm not aware of that statistic, but it's important
to them," he said grinning.
Chiefland finished its regular season with a 12-8
record.
If they had won the two overtime losses to Bell,
and the one point loss to Taylor County, along with the
home court loss to Dixie County, Beck said it would
have been an even better season.
The Indians faced Bell Monday night in the first
round of the district tournament.
"We have an opportunity Monday against Bell to
shoot our nemesis this season, or they can put us out of
our misery," Beck said.
Scoring:
Chiefland Eugene Carter 31, Jac Minnifield 12,
Jam Thompson 7, Bo Beauchamp 6, Marquis Greene
3, Tony Bennett 2.

Chiefland's junior varsity boys'
squad finished their season with a 61-
52 loss to Newberry Saturday.
The Indians were never blown
out of the game and appeared to fare
much better when they applied the
full court press.
Boyd said the team no longer has a
deep enough bench to run a full court
press'for the entire game.


Chiefland players Jeremy McClellan (44) and Kyle Schultz (15) hustle to grab the ball
off the court. (Terry Witt)


"If I used it the entire game they
would flame out," he said.
Boyd started the season with a
relatively powerful team, but when
he lost his point guard to the varsity
and two other players to grades and
parent discipline, the chemistry of
the team changed and the Indians lost
much of their firepower.
Without a true point guard in the
lineup, the Indians were unable to
bring the ball up the court without
struggling against Newberry.


"We got killed on turnovers,"
Boyd said. "Our offense killed us this
year. Most of the points were scored
off turnovers."
When the Indians' big man, Kyle
Schultz, found himself with four
fouls and jusf two minutes gone in
the third period, he.had to take a seat
on the bench. Chiefland lost much of
its rebounding strength.
The team's positive attitude and
willingness to fight back kept the
score close for the entire game. Boyd


said the team never lost its willingness
to hustle all season.
"We battled back all year. "This
year, rarely did I have to get on
them about hustle. It was about
execution."
Scoring:

Editor

Williston earned a post-season
playoff berth with a 58-42 dismantling
of Santa Fe Feb. 4 at Santa Fe.
The Lady Red Devils jumped to an
early 5-0 advantage and never trailed
in the game, leading by as much as 21
points late in the second half.
Ericka Floyd led all scorers in the
game with 17 points, including a dozen
in a fast-paced third quarter that saw
Williston turn a 25-22 game into a rout.
She scored a layup seconds into the
quarter, and then added a 10-foot jumper
moments later to make it 29-22.
Both teams traded baskets to make
it 31-25 before Floyd took a pretty
pass from Kae'etta Jackson inside for
an easy score. Floyd would add a free
throw later on in the third quarter, and
then a 3-pointer from the right side.
She finished with a five-foot jumper,
following another pass from Jackson, to
close out a double-digit performance.
Williston took a 9-5 first quarter
lead on a pair of inside shots by Lateria


Walker, a layup and a free throw by
Floyd, and a layup following a steal by
Erica Mason.
Santa Fe kept pace with a pair of
shots by Celeste Ford and a free throw
by Charnese Fields.
Williston stretched the lead to as
many as nine points in the second
quarter with significant contributions
from Mason, Walker, Erica Evans and
Jackson, who converted a steal into a
layup with 4:25 left in the half to put
her team up 20-11.
Santa Fe got a pair of baskets from
Fields down the stretch to narrow the
gap, and got to within 25-22 at the half
when Skye Wakeley hit back-to-back
12-footers, the second with five seconds
remaining.
Floyd took over the game in the third
quarter, outscoring the Lady Raiders by
herself, 12-8. Williston led 44-30 after
three.
Williston turned it on in the fourth
quarter, using a 12-3 run to put the
game out of reach. Jackson was the
key architect of the spurt, scoring on a


rebound.


pair of layups one after a pass from
Mason and a couple of free throws.
Mason, Evans and Cinnemon Robinson
also contributed points during the span.
Wakeley scored the final five points of
the game on three free throws and a
layup.


Mason scored 11 points for the
Williston, while Jackson finished with
10 and Walker eight. Evans scored five
and Robinson four.
Wakeley paced Santa Fe with 13
points, followed by Fields and Ford
with eightapiece.

throws from Hope Chambers to make it 48-47 with 1:45 left.
Williston missed a free throw moments later, and after grabbing
the rebound, Suwannee found itself back at the free-throw line.
This time it was Tyrenae Riley, and the Suwannee center used an
unconventional, shooting style to make both shots, putting the Lady
Bulldogs up 49-48.
Williston missed another free throw on the subsequent possession,
and once again Suwannee rebounded and was fouled. Tara Oliver
made both shots, and Suwannee led 51-48.
Williston got its final points from Cinnemon Robinson, on a
breakaway layup with 15 seconds left following a steal to get to
within 51-50. The Lady Red Devils had an opportunity to win the
game, but a final shot by Kae'etta Jackson was long.
Williston Coach Robert Patterson said his team emphasizes the
importance of free throws, but just could not get them to fall late in
the game against Suwannee County.
"That adds to the frustration," he said. "We work on our free
throws a lot and we emphasize that they can win or lose a game for
you. We just could not get them to fall."
Patterson said beating a team three times in one season can be a
difficult task.
"We beat them twice in the regular season and I think we thought
it was going to be automatic," he said.
The coach said Suwannee County's height advantage and ability
throughout the game to get the ball inside presented a problem.
"They had us height-wise," he said. "We gave them too many
inside passes and they were able to take advantage of it and score,
We were just not in position to stop that entry pass down low."
Lateria Walker finished with 13 points to lead Williston, while
Robinson added 12 and Erica Mason 10. Jackson contributed nine
points, while Ericka Floyd finished with seven.
Tattiyana Thomas finished with 12 for Suwannee, while
Chambers accounted for eight and Riley six.

To tax or not to tax:


A Social Security Question


By Donna Maitland
Social Security District Manager,
Gainesville

When it comes to Social Security
benefits, you may be wondering who
must pay taxes on them and who does
not. Let's look at the numbers.
If you file a federal tax return as an
"individual" and your total income is more
than $25,000, then the answer for you is
yes: you'll have to pay federal taxes on
your benefits. If you file a joint return
and you and your spouse have a total
income more than $32,000, you'll be
expected to pay federal taxes as well.
If your taxable income is below those
thresholds, there is no need to pay taxes
on your Social Security benefits.
If you need to pay taxes on a portion
of your benefits, you will need your SSA-
1099. This form shows the total amount
of benefits received in the previous
year and is used to find out whether any
benefits are subject to tax. You will need
to submit it when. you complete your
federal income tax return.


You already should have received your
SSA-1099 for tax year 2009 in the mail
- they were automatically mailed to all
beneficiaries by January 31, 2010. If
you receive Social Security and have not
yet received a Form SSA-1099 for 2009,
you can request a replacement online at
www.socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices.
Or you can call Social Security's toll-
free number, 1-800-772-1213 (TTY, 1-
800-325-0778) and ask for a replacement
SSA-1099 to be mailed to you.
If you would like more information
about paying taxes on your Social
Security benefits, visit www.irs.gov
and read Publication Number 915,
Social Security and Equivalent Railroad
Retirement Benefits. You also can call'
the Internal Revenue Service toll-free
at 1-800-829-3676 (TTY, 1-800-829--
4059).
So if you've been wondering whether
or not you'll need to pay taxes on your
Social Security benefits and what forms
you may need, now you know the simple
facts.

Otter Creek to get new community radio station
There is a demand for new local radio stations
across America, but the radio dial is full in most cities.
:" Otter Creek is one of only 66 towns in the United
States that the Federal Communications Commission
in Washington has determined to be "underserved"
and eligible for a new radio station.
Non-profit organizations -may apply during a
filing "window" in mid-February to operate a non-
commercial community station in Otter Creek on
95.9 FM with a power of 6,000 watts.
Competition will be fierce since this is the last
available frequency in the area. The FCC will use
-a complex engineering and community service
formula to award the radio license. Local non-profit
L groups such as area churches, schools, and civic
- organizations will be given a preference over regional
Z and national applicants. Commercial businesses will
not be allowed to apply.
, A Georgia consulting firm, Christian Community
Broadcasts (CCB), has helped local groups apply for
and construct community broadcast stations for. the
past 10 years. The process from filing to getting on the
air can take several years, but the initial application
must be filed in February.
CCB will select one local group to assist and
" represent in the filing process. For additional
information, please contact them immediately:
-P.O. Box 4851, Canton, GA, 30114. Phone: (770)
720-1037. Web site: ccbroadcasters.com. E-mail:

The Long Walk Home character at Williston
Library, Feb. 11
For four devastating years, WWII swept across
Europe, taking the lives of millions of people. For
young Gita Poldemaa, it meant the loss of everything,
including her family, home and country. But God
gives beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.
Out of the ashes of losing everything, Gita found her
Valentine in U.S. Army Capt. Valentine Barker. Like
Job in the Bible, she was given a new family and a
new start.
In 2009, Gita's story, The Long Walk Home, by
Sheridan Elaine Claude, was published. It was a best
seller on Amazon and a Book of the Week selection at
Publish America. This Feb. 11 at 7 p.m., the Friends
of the Williston Library, located at 10 S.E. First St.,
will host an event in honor of Gita Poldemaa Barker,
who has lived in Williston since 1970. Everyone is

Give Personalized Manatee Adoptions on Valentine's Day


Save the Manatee Club

It could be that many of Cupid's arrows are "green"
tipped. Seems like more Valentine's Day shoppers
are searching for environmentally-friendly gifts -
ones that come straight from the heart like "green"
manatee gift adoptions from Save the Manatee Club.
Take for example, elementary school teacher
Heather Herendeen from New York, who, this past
Valentine's Day, decided to adopt Margarito from the
Club's Adopt-A-Manatee program for her husband,
Jim, a music teacher at the same school as his wife.
"Jim has everything, and he feels most gifts are
just a waste ofmoney"'said Heather. "Since Jim loves
manatees, I thought it would make a unique gift, plus
,do something good for our animal friends."
The $25 tax deductible gift adoptions from Save
:the Manatee Club include a color photo of a real
:Florida manatee. People get to select one or more
:adoptees from 33 manatees featured in the Club's
:Florida adoption programs at Blue Spring State
:Park, Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, and in
'the Tampa Bay area. The program also features
;newest East Coast adoptee, Ilya. Also included in
:the package is an adoption certificate, biography,
*pnembership handbook, subscriptions to the Club's
official quarterly newsletter, The Manatee Zone,
and the bi-monthly e-newsletter, Paddle Tales, a
year's membership in Save the Manatee Club, a
personalized Valentine's Day gift card, and free
shipping within the United States. Or for $35, each
new member who adopts online will also receive a
plush manatee toy.
Jim has Margarito's photo and adoption certificate
hanging up in his garage. which the couple has
transformed into their own "Margaritaville/Key
West" themed-room for entertaining. There's also
a manatee mural painted by a neighbor, and various
signs and other manatee paraphernalia adorn the
room. "I specifically chose Margarito for Jim as
he loves Jimmy Buffett," explains Heather. "Little
did I realize at the time of the adoption that Jimmy
Buffett is one of the founders of the organization.
That ended up being a big bonus!"
Funds from the adoption program help Save the
Manatee Club protect endangered manatees and their

aquatic habitat for future generations. To accomplish
this, the Club raises public awareness; educates;
sponsors research, rescue; rehabilitation, and release
efforts; supports land acquisition; promotes aquatic
habitat protection; works for improved protection
measures; and supports conservation efforts in other
countries. Manatees face ever-increasing threats
mostly from watercraft-related mortality and loss of
winter warm-water habitat.
This Valentine's Day, people will be connecting
with loved ones, and many will choose to express
how much they care about the world around them in
the gifts they bestow on one another.
"The manatee adoption gift was special because
it showed that my wife Heather shares the same
compassion and concerns that I do about the welfare
of manatees," said Jim.


Save the Manatee Club, a national nonprofit
advocacy organization, was founded in 1981 by
Jimmy Buffett, world-rerfowned singer/songwriter,
and former Governor of Florida and U.S. Senator
Bob Graham.

adopt one for Valentine's Day,. contact Save the

WHEN IN ROME
(Running time: 91 minutes)
Rated PG-13
Starring Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel,
Anjelica Huston, Danny DeVito

I was disappointed with When in
Rome. The story is about a beautiful
young woman, Beth (Bell), who has
been so unlucky in love, that she lost her
belief true love will happen to her.
At her sister's wedding in Rome,
she meets Nick (Duhamel). They are
instantly attracted to each other. Then
she thinks he's with someone else, so
she picks up a few coins thrown in the
"wishing" fountain. Legend has it that if
you pick up the coin of someone wishing
for love, then they will fall in love with
you.
So Beth is chased by four weirdos
all over Newv York. This interferes with
her growing relationship with Nick
and her job. Too much is going on at
the same time, and the humor is badly
done. I didn't like any of the supporting
characters, except maybe the Danny
DeVito character. That's bad writing and
bad acting.
When in Rome is a cute, harmless
fluff about romance and love. The two
main characters carry as much as they
can through their considerable charm.
Since there is no violence, bad language
or sex, it should be fine for 'tweens and
teens 12 and up. But send them with
Grandma.

AN EDUCATION
(Running time: 95 minutes)
Rated: PG-13
Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Carey
Mulligan, Alfred Molina

This excellent coming-of-age movie


about a very bright, pretty 16-year-old in
London in the 1960s is terrific.
Jenny (Mulligan) is tall, lovely and
super smart. She is going to a private
school and studying to get into Oxford.
Her parents, especially her father
(Molina), keep her protected from life
and push her to excel.
I But Jenny is bored. So one very rainy
day, when David (Sarsgaard) pulls up
to give her a ride home, she consents.
David is handsome and charming. He
goes to her school concert. Then he
invites her to a professional concert.
Of course, Jenny's parents don't
want her to go with him, but he is very
persuasive. He assures them than he is
going with his Aunt Helen, which is a
lie. Jenny is intrigued by David. He's
dashing, a bit of a daredevil who doesn't
play by society's rules. She is bored with
her circumscribed life and he looks like
a way out.
Slowly David wins Jenny away from
her parents, charming her and her folks
every step of the way. He takes her to
Paris for the weekend. She tells him that
she wants to lose her virginity on her
17th birthday. David is a patient man.
I can't say too much more without
revealing the rest of the plot. Although
it all ends up OK, Jenny goes through
much heartache, as do her parents. While
she blames them to some degree, we can
see that when teens lie to their parents,
they forfeit the protection parents can
provide. The other side of that is when
parents believe their children because
it is more convenient to do so rather
than question, they give up the role of
protector.
This is an excellent movie for teens,
13 plus, as there is no violence but is
some bad language and sexual situations.
Parents, see it with your girls.

Annual bull ride benefits injured local legend


Story and photos by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

For the 15h year, bull riders and
local spectators alike came out to
support "Williston's Son."
The Pee Wee Mercer Benefit
Bull Ride was held at the Williston
Horseman's Park Saturday. Although
the final count had not been made by
press time, clown entertainer and co-
coordinator Cliff "Hollywood" Harris
said about $5,000-$6,000 was raised
for the injured bull rider.
Williston native Pee Wee Mercer
became paralyzed after his neck was
broken from landing on his head after a
ride in 1995, Harris said.
Mercer had completed the 8-second
ride and the landing was "nothing out
of the ordinary," he said.
Harris recalled hearing the news of
Mercer's accident. He said he was in
Murfreesboro, Tenn., when it happened
and he cried when he heard.
"It's kinda like the day Elvis died,"
he said. "Everybody remembers that."
Mercer, who was around 24 at the.
time of the accident, had been bull
riding since junior rodeo, said Harris,
who has kfiown Mercer since Mercer
was a child.
"He was dead set to bull ride for
quite some time. He wanted to make a
career out of it," he said.
The benefit bull ride is held every
year. and all the profits go into Pee
Wee's account to help pay for medical
and day-to-day expenses. Pee Wee is
taken care of by his brother.
Saturday's bull ride and auction
didn't bring quite the turn-out and
profit they would have liked, Harris
said, especially since $10,000 has been
raised in the past.
"The cold weather really hurt us and
the economy kicked us back," he said.
But despite the obstacles, the
number of bull riders signed up was
more than average.
Thirty-four riders competed in the
Southern States Bull RidingAssociation


The bullfighting clowns distract an angry bull as the bull rider runs to safety during the Pee Wee Mercer
Benefit Bull Ride Saturday at the Williston Horseman's Park.


sanctioned benefit ride, which is about
10 more than average, said Michelle
Carter, secretary of Chiefland's
Renegade Rodeo and secretary of the
Pee Wee bull ride.
"They always come out for Pee
Wee's deal," she said.
"Bull riders come out of the
woodwork for this one because they
know the cause," Harris said. Many are
sons of bull riders who rode during Pee
Wee's time and know him as a legend.
Harris said the ride was open for
call-ins and then the last 10 slots were
opened up especially for local riders.
"Pee Wee's all about riding bulls
and he wants some of the local guys to
ride," he said.
Brian Courson from Winter Haven
ended up taking home the first place
winnings of $1,396 with a 74-point
ride, Carter said.


Harris said this bull ride doesn't
cost as much to put on because many
of the integral figures don't charge as
much money for their services.
The rodeo clowns, or bullfighters,
only took about $100 or as much as they
needed for gas to get themselves home,
and Renegade Rodeo put the ride on at
less than half of what it usually costs,
he said.


"We all give for this one," he said.
"Everybody kinda donates their time."
People want to support Pee Wee
because not only is he a legend, but he's
also known as being a steady cowboy
who never made any trouble, he said.
"He was a worker. He is a good,
grounded cowboy that was responsible
and took care of business."


A bull rider holds on tight until the 8-second buzzer sounds the end
of his ride.

A rider is bucked from his perch on the bull and lands in the dirt be-
fore the bullfighters make their way over to assist.
