Sheriff's office accepts another resignation


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer,

Sheriff Johnny Smith on Tuesday
confirmed he has ordered an internal
probe into allegations that an
.employee's pills were. allegedly taken
by the daughter of Col. Mike Johnson
and never investigated, and he also
accepted the resignation of Johnson's
son Chuck last .week following yet
another internal probe into the younger
Johnson's conduct. ,
Col. Johnson resigned last week
saying he had been attacked relentlessly
in media reports insinuating that
he had shielded his son Chuck and
daughter Susan Everett from internal
investigations. Both of his adult children
worked at the sheriff's office. He denied
that he ever was part of a cover up or
attempted to protect his children from
investigations.
Smith-took time last week to defend
Col. Johnson, his second in command
for many years, saying he was a man
of integrity. Smith said he never for a


moment thought Johnson had attempted
to squash or cover up an investigation
of his children. .
"Regardless of what the media says,
there was no favoritism. Nothing was
shoved underthe rug," Smith said. "Mike
Johnson, my second in command, is one
of the finest men I have every known.
He is a Christian man and he has a good
heart. He served the sheriff's office well
as my second in command,"
Chuck Johnson resigned on Feb.
11 in lieu. of being fired. The latest
internal investigation found that he had
not engaged .in another extramarital
'affair as alleged, but that -Johnson
admitted having sexual conduct with a
married woman who was three months
pregnant. The woman's husband had
filed a complaint about a sheriff's officer
having an affair with his wife. She was
separated from her husband at the time.
The investigation found that while
the younger Johnson had communicated
with the woman by e-mails, it did


with th6 woman, Johnson admitted
having a sexual encounter with the
woman on a driveway while off-duty.-
The investigation said the woman had
resisted his advances by trying to pull
his hand away from her.
On Feb. 11, a sheriff's office
disciplinary review board consisting
of Maj. Mike Sheffield, Capt. Gary
Sache, Capt. Danny Riffle, Capt. Scott
Anderson. Lt. Sean Mullins, Lt. Todd
Polo and Lt. Shawn Hunt reviewed the
findings of the internal investigation
and ruled Johnson was guilty of conduct
unbecoming an officer. The review
board said it was conduct that adversely
affects the morale or efficiency of the
department and has a "tendency to
destroy public respect, for department
employees and confidence in the
operation of the sheriff's office."
The internal probe related to Susan
Everett centers on an incident in the
sheriff's office evidence room on Aug.
29, 2008. Evidence Officer Michele


not amount to an extramarital affair. Arnold said Everett came into the
While being questioned about contact evidence room for no particular reason


and sat,'at her desk. Arnold left the
evidence room to make photocopies.
Later, when. Arnold, opened her purse
to take her antibiotic, she found her
prescription bottles, were missing. One
of the bottles contained approximately
10 pills, of Oxycodone, a painkiller,
and the other contained the antibiotic.
Arnold filed a written complaint. Co-
worker Chad Gordon, who worked with
Arnold, filed a similar complaint about
the missing pills. He also saw Everett
sitting at, Arnold's desk when Arnold
was out of the evidence room. Gordon
said he turned his back to Everett.
The complaints from Arnold and
Gordon were handed to Riffle who
handed them to Col. Johnson, his boss.
However an internal investigation was
never conducted into the missing pills
allegations.
Capt. Evan Sullivan, who handles
internal investigations for the sheriff's
office, said he did not know an employee
had made a written complaint on Aug.

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer,

Hundreds of young people will converge on the Suwannee
River Youth Livestock Show and Sale next month, many of
them with show animals, but the big question is whether the
economy will affect the sale of steers and hogs.
The fair has traditionally received strong support from
businesses and youth organizations in Levy, Gilchrist and.
Dixie Counties.* Fair President Loran Brookins is hoping for
the same result in March.
But the economic downturn is worrying him. The recession
had just begun to bite the area economy in the 2009 fair.
"We were down a little bit last-year, but we were tickled to
death," Brookins said. "I'm even more worried this year. We
were just getting into it last year. We've been in it a year now.
We're keeping our fingers crossed."
The fair is bigger this year. There are more animal exhibits.
Brookins said fair officials have no way of knowing how buyers
will react to the economic conditions, but as a precaution they
are encouraging all exhibitors to bring at least one buyer to the
fair to bid on or buy animals.
The first phase of the fair is March 18-20 when the rabbit
show, poultry show, dairy goat show, heifer show, dairy cow
show and exhibitor milking contest, plus an adult milk-off, are
scheduled. Poultry and rabbits will be entered March 18, and
dairy cows, dairy goats and 95 heifers will be entered on March
*^ ..


19. The milk-offs are on Saturday, March 20.
In the second half of the fair, March 26-31, the home
economics competition will take place along with the livestock
shows and the fair finale the big sale. This year 55 fat steers
and 156 feeder steers will be weighed in on March 26, and 295
hogs will be weighed on March 27.
The fair will be enforcing its rule on the mandatory feeding
and watering of all animals. A handful of exhibitors traditionally
do not feed or water the animal properly. It often occurs toward
the end of the fair, and often with hogs.
Sometimes hog'exhibitors have trouble feeding and watering
their animals. The other hogs in the pen sometimes fight to get
the feed and water. But the animals have to be taken care of just
the same, for humanitarian reasons and because it's a fair rule.
Exhibitors will be given a warning if their animals are not
fed and watered. If fair officials find the animals are still unfed
or unwatered, the exhibitor can be disqualified.
The fair is also attempting to combat the practice of exhibitors
starving their animals, particularly steers, to get them down to
weight, and then pumping them full of feed at the fair to bring
them back up in weight. The first and second place winners
will go straight to the digital scales. The winners can weigh no
more and no less than 5 percent of their check-in weight at the
start of the fair.
"We're trying to make it fair for the animals and the people,"
Brookins said.

Group plants thousands of seedlings


CFCC Levy Center

gets $ 100,000 grant

Central Florida Community
College has been awarded a $100,000
grant for adult education at the
CFCC Levy Center and is one of
only four state colleges to receive an
award in the Transition Program for
Adult Learners into Postsecondary
Education.
"CFCC is committed to increasing
opportunities for adult learners and
this grant will allow .the college to
provide the resources for individuals
to become successful postsecondary
students," said Dr. Charles Dassance,
CFCC president.
The grant will be used to develop a
program for assisting adult education
students in making successful
transitions from adult education to
postsecondary education, according
to Joan Luebbe, Adult Education
coordinator at the Levy Center.
Planning and curriculum development
are under way and the program will
begin with the fall semester.
The grant is funded by the U.S.
Department of Education through the
,Florida Department of Education in
response to what has become known
as the "2020 Challenge."
The CFCC Levy Center is located
at 114 Rodgers Blvd. in Chiefland.
For more information, call Luebbe at
352-493-9533.


Kevin- Sierra and six others from
Arkansas drove all day and all night
to reach the Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge in mid January.
No vacation planned though, to the
contrary, they were on a mission. Fifty
thousand pine seedlings 400 boxes
filled to the brim with perfectly formed
long-leaf pine seedlings, and 50,000
wire grass seedlings in another 400
boxes had to be planted.
Anticipating their arrival, Refuge
Forester, Daniel Barrand directed
staff and volunteers in the distribution
of truckloads of the native long-leaf
pines and wiregrass to the 21 sites to
be planted. "In order to reestablish
native pines on this particular sand hill,
we're planting 80 acres," said Barrand
standing on what looked like a beach
dune.
Along with the pines, wiregrass,the
preferred food of the protected gopher
tortoise, will be interspersed across the
acreage. This plan mimics the historic
growth of Florida's forests. Throughout.
millennia when lightning was the only
firestarter, wiregrass helped carry fire
throughout the uplands. Fire, being
the stimulator for long-leaf pine
reproduction, shaped Florida's forests
before ancient cultures began burning.
This completed the largest tree and
wiregrass planting project in the history
of the Refuge nearly double the size


of any project undertake before. This
is nothing unusual for this forester
who supervised five timber sales for.
the Refuge in the summer of 2005.
Habitat restoration for the benefit of the
indigenous wildlife is vitally important
to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Servicq, of
which the Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge is a part.


"This is something to be proud of;
it's a vital step to our habitat restoration
goals here on the Refuge. I expect very
good survival this year due to the extra
moisture on the ground. I don't think
we could have picked a better time
to complete a project of this size and
scope," reported Barrand.

Levy County commission discusses mine issue, Inglis


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer.

Levy County commissioners tackled controversial
issues Tuesday ranging from allegations that a Tarmac
mine-permit was handled improperly, to the potential
impacts of a citizens' movement to dissolve the City:
of Inglis.
Commissioners are concerned that the potential
elimination of Inglis as a city could force the county
commission to take on tasks such as road maintenance,
the city water plant and police protection at a time
when the recession is cutting into tax revenues.
Sheriff Johnny Smith and Capt. Evan Sullivan
visited Inglis concerning the possible loss of Inglis as
a municipality. Sullivan said Smith told Inglis officials
and residents he wasn't interested in taking over law
enforcement duties, but state law would require him
to do so if the town was dissolved.
Mayor William Lake said a little more than 10
percent of the town's residents have signed a petition
asking for an election to dissolve the town. Lake said
he has no idea whether the petition drive will succeed
but he believes it could impact the county's finances
if residents vote to dissolve the town.
Lake said it may or may not happen, but it's good
to be prepared.
"I'm here simply to make you aware of the
possibilities," Lake said.
He also asked commissioners if their staff could
gather information on what the potential' costs
to the county would be if Inglis was dissolved.
Commissioners said it was too early for begin
gathering information.
County Coordinator Fred Moody agreed it was too
early to begin gathering information, but he said the
city's potential shutdown is a troubling possibility.
"We're not shutting down Otter Creek. We're
shutting down a major municipality. There's a lot of
infrastructure," he said.
Commissioners are not enthused about the prospect
of. taking over operation of another abandoned water
system. They were forced by state law to take control
of University Oaks' water system when the owner


abandoned it. They were also forced to take control of
the water system at Chiefland Golf and Country Club
for the same reason.
"That's just what this county needs is another water
system," said Commissioner Chad Johnson. "We do it
so well."'
Inglis resident Michael Peters said residents are
revolting against a town .government that doesn't
listen to its residents.
"The people have been told (by the town
commission) to sit down and shut up," Peters said.
Michael Andrew White, a second Inglis resident,
said the town moved a city election up one week to
avoid the petition for dissolution of the town from
being placed on the ballot.
Commissioners said they would deal with the
funding effects if the town is dissolved.
But no action was taken by commissioners.

Mining Permit
The mining company Tarmac secured a county
permit to dig a test pit years ago to determine if there
was good limestone at the site for a 4,800-acre mine
north,of Inglis.
Several Yankeetown residents say the permit
required closing of the pit after a year.
The pit remains open. The permit has expired.
County Coordinator Fred Moody said the company
has indicated it plans to file for a county commercial
mining permit around April. j
But the test pit permit is what is in dispute now.
County Commissioner Marsha Drew and residents
Michael Lineberger, Larry Feldhusen and Jack Schofield
said they believe the county is refusing to enforce a
condition in the permit requiring the pit to be closed.
They question why the wording of one condition was
altered without county commission approval.
Schofield wrote a Feb. 16 letter that was read
by Feldhusen in which he asked the county why a.
condition requiring total reclamation of the test pit
within one year of the company being granted an
operation permit was not enforced. Schofield also
asked why a phrase was added to the permit, after it
was approved by county commissioners, saying "If


prospecting does not prove resource present."
County Attorney Anne Bast Brown has not
explained why the language was added, but she
examined the permit and found that the test pit
doesn't have to be closed to meet the conditions of
the expired permit. Her opinion is that the wording
change in one condition was of no consequence
because it didn't alter the requirements of the permit
or add a new condition.
Brown said .the intent of Tarmac was to close the
permit if good limestone wasn't found at the site.
But good limestone was found at the test pit. The
company posted. a bond that would pay the county's
expenses if it had to bulldoze the limestone back into
the pit at county expense. Brown believes the issues
raised are not relevant.
Drew said the only explanation she was given
for not enforcing the pit closure requirement is that
another permit is pending with a different agency. If
that's the case, she said, "It is giving our authority to
another entity. It is incorrect." Her motion to enforce
the condition requiring closure of the pit did not get
a second. A second motion to seek an independent
third party to examine the legal issues also died for
lack of support.
'Tarmac Plant Manager Jeff Harris, who handles
the King Road mine project issues for Tarmac, issued
a news release after the meeting saying the most
recent complaints against Levy County are similar
to those directed at the county in recent months.
"Previously County Attorney Anne Bast Brown
handed down the decision that no action from the
county Commission was required on the legalities of
the special exception permit for the test pit, and we
support that decision. The commission's non-action
in today's meeting further reinforces the attorney's
prior ruling."
Harris said Tarmac has complied with all directives
and regulations handed down by Levy County since
the King Road Mine project was started in 2005. In
regards to the test pit, he said Tarmac has complied
with all conditions in our permit "and will continue to
do so as we move through the permitting process."


Old timers
Some centenarians were spotted at
Williston Elementary on Wednes-
day, Feb. 3, the 100th day of school
for this year. Students in Lita Hal-
chak's and Tina Roberts' 4th grade
classes started this year by using
fractions, decimals, and percent-
ages to count up to the 100th day
of school.
To celebrate that day, students
dressed as centenarians, read a
100-day poem, ate banana splits,
and started telling 100 jokes. Pic-
tured as centenarians are Steven
Erven, Krista Sharpe, Maggie Knott,
Cori Strickland, Rebbecca Rodg-
ers, Delaney Anderson, Zaharia
Coleman, Kyra Penny and Thomas
Smith; seated is their teacher, Lita

He was born on March 29, 1925,
in Baltimore, Maryland. He moved

Wanted man runs over self attempting to flee police


A Chiefland man who was wanted on
a Levy County warrant was arrested after
a Chiefland police officer engaged in a
vehicle pursuit and observed the man run
nine stop signs and get run over by his own
car in an attempt to flee police on foot. *
On Jan. 28, Officer Chase Gregory
was alerted to the presence of Jesse
Bryan Balogh, 22, of 414 S.E. Eighth
Terrace, Chiefland, at the Chiefland
Huddle House. When he arrived at the
Huddle House Balogh had already left,
so he began searching the area.
Balogh was spotted in the Wal-Mart
parking lot and left the area. Gregory
followed him and when he saw Balogh
run the stop sign at N.E. 211s Ave., he
initiated his lights and siren.
It was at this time, Balogh allegedly
attempted to flee the officer and in the
process, Gregory noticed Balogh run nine


stops signs. Sgt. Matthew Poppell was en
route to assist heading toward the chase
northbound on N.W. 12t Drive when
according to the report Balogh swerved
into Poppell's lane. Poppell was forced to
swerve off the road to avoid collision.
Balogh finally slowed down after he
turned off of S. Main Street onto S.W.
Second Drive. Gregory reported Balogh
attempted to evade him by fleeing from
his vehicle.
"As Balogh exited his vehicle, Balogh
fell onto the asphalt," Gregory wrote
in the arrest report. "I then observed
Balogh's vehicle run over the bottom
portion of his torso. Balogh however
stood up and began to flee on foot."
Gregory parked behind Balogh's car
and chased him on foot through 1050 S.W.
First Drive until Balogh entered a Prairie
Oaks Apartment. The apartment was


unlocked by a key from the manager and
Balogh was found hiding in a bedroom.
He was transported by EMS to Shands
to receive an x-ray and cat scan, which
found no sign of injury.
Balogh was charged with aggravated
assault with a vehicle.
The apartment resident told Chiefland
'police she would like to press charges
against Balogh for entering and remaining
in her apartment without her permission.

Sheriff, from Page 1A


29,2008 concerning the missing pills
until a year-and-a-half later.
"I read the written complaint for the
first time on Feb. 4, 2010," he wrote in
an e-mail to the Journal.
Smith said he takes full responsibility
for the case not being looked into for 1
V2 years.
"From this point forward, I have
measures in place to make sure that it
doesn't happen again," he said.
Smith said the younger Johnson was
disciplined like any other employee and
at one point lost rank because of what
he had done at the jail as a correctional
officer. The sheriff said he had been
waiting for the results of the last internal
investigation to decide what to do about
-Chuck Johnson.
He said Johnson's father never


interfered with his son's discipline. The
younger Johnson was disciplined 10
times.
"Though Chuck was disciplined, he
(Col. Johnson) never interfered. It was
handed down and he was made aware
of it."
Smith said despite a "few bumps in
the road" he is changing policies in his
department to ensure that "these bumps"
will never happen again.
"We're going to make sure we correct
any issues we've had in the past," Smith
said. "Whatever changes need to be
made, I'm making those changes."
As for Col. Johnson, he said he
served the department well.
"I can't say enough about his
performance. He is the best chief deputy
this county has had," Smith said.

Author gives rotarians Black History Month speech


Story and phot by Terry Witt .
Staff Writer

Chiefland's best known artist and author, Carolyn
Cohen, spoke to the Williston Rotary Club last week.
as part of Black History month, telling. Rotarians
about her childhood in Chiefland growing up with
her education-minded grandparents.
Her grandparents, Amos and Margaret Gibbs
were well known in Chiefland and were educated.
They made it known to their granddaughter early in
life that she too would be educated.
"There was no doubt I would get an education,"
Cohen said.
Cohen, author of the recently. released book,
Images of America Levy County said the book
focuses on the founders of Levy County, like the
Usher family who donated land for the first Chiefland
SCity Hall.
The book is an historical look at Levy d County,
primarily Chiefland, as seen through the photographs
of the,early founding families. She wrote an earlier
book about the black families who were part of Levy
County's history.
Cohen said she focused mostly on Chiefland in'
this book because the people of Chiefland were who
she knew best.
.Cohen also talked about the grandparents who
raised her. She said her grandmother had high cheek -
bones, suggesting an Indian heritage, and her eyes
turned blue when she died.
Cohen said she dreamed as a child of becoming
an artist. When she told her grandparents about her
'dream, they shot her a strange look. She found out .'.

procedure team. "You don't replace
him. There will be someone else, but it
won't be Philpot."
Philpot's teaching career has
spanned across enough time that
he has been the teacher and FFA
coach for students and their parents.
Philpot's teams have won 37 State
FFA championships and two national
FFA titles. Some of the championship
trophies cover two filing cabinets in his
office, FFA plaques line the walls along
with photos of team members.
His agriculture program and FFA
teams attracted some of the brightest
students at the school. It was not
uncommon for valedictorians and
salutatorians to take his agriculture
classes or participate on his FFA
teams. His students have gone on to
become doctors, lawyers, veterinarians
and teachers. Many have attended
the University of Florida's school of
agriculture.
People who know him best respect
him as a man of values and great
teaching and coaching talent. They say
he is likeable. He picks at the people
he likes the best, and they pick at
him. It's a Levy County tradition, and
Philpot is pure Levy County. He was
born in Gainesville but was raised in
Chiefland until 8th grade. He transferred
to Williston High School and graduated
from there.
A reception is planned for May
15 at the Williston Middle School
Cafetorium. The reception is from 3-6
p.m. A large crowd is expected to send
Philpot into retirement.
."It will be standing room only,"
said Dr. Wade Bullock, also a
member of Philpot's first state FFA
championship parliamentary procedure
team. Bullock's son Lott was a
member of last year's state-champion
parliamentary procedure team that
placed fourth in the nation.
Bullock sees Philpot as both a
mentor and a friend.
"He's Levy County through and
through. He's definitely got the heart of


"I've really enjoyed what
I've done for eons of time. I
feel sorry for these people
who work and don't enjoy
what they are doing."

Robert Philpot


the community, and he's got a heart of
gold," Bullock said.
Attorney Norm Fugate, a third
member of Philpot's first state-
champion parliamentary procedure
team, speaks well'bf his former FFA
coach. His son Hunter was a member
of the state-champion parliamentary
procedure team about five years ago.
"More so than what he did for me is
what he did for my children," Fugate
said.
Fugate's daughter Miranda is a
member of this year's Williston High
School district-champion parliamentary
procedure team coached by Philpot.
Hunter Fugate is graduating from
the agricultural sciences program at the
University of Florida this year. He was
a state officer in the FFA.
Norm Fugate credits Philpot's skills
as a teacher and motivator with helping
Hunter focus on what he wanted to do
in life.
Other members of the Philpot's
1976 state-champion parliamentary
procedure team were Dr. Hal Phillips, a
Williston veterinarian, Scott Rutland, a
St. Petersburg insurance executive and
Charlie Smith, a foreman with W.W.
Gay.
There is yet another parent-child
connection with Philpot and his state-
champion parliamentary procedure
teams. Damon Sandlin was a member
of one Williston state-champion
parliamentary procedure team and his
daughter Victoria was a member of the
2009 state-champion parliamentary
procedure team. Damon Sandlin was
also the national high individual in
meat judging one year.
Little known facts about Philpot are
that his favorite snack food is black
olives and he worked'for Fugate Peanut
Farm straight out of high school. He is
an avid Gator fan. He takes at least one
trip a year with Fugate's family to a
Gator game.
Philpot began teaching veterans
at Williston High School in 1973. He
had just earned a degree in agriculture
education from the University of
Florida.
He was drafted in 1970 and found
himself at the Long Binh Air Force
Base in Vietnam. He was in-country 14
or 21 days when he was wounded in
combat. He was shot in the leg.
"It was different," he said of his
experience in the war.


When he came back to Fort Gordon.
in the United States, he found out he
could get out of the service early if
he went to college. He had attended
Central Florida Community College for
two years before he went into the U.S.
Army. When he got back he enrolled
at Santa Fe Community College and
retook courses that he had done poorly
in at CFCC. When he was ready, he
transferred to UF.
He,wanted to become a farmer,
but lacked the resources to go into
farming. He never thought he would
be a teacher when he was growing up
in Chiefland and later Williston. But he
found agriculture education was to his
liking at UF. And he liked teaching at'
Williston High School.
"I can remember maybe five times
when I got up and I didn't want to go
to work," he said. "I've really enjoyed
what I've done for eons of time. I feel
sorry for these people who work and
don't enjoy what they are doing."
Philpot considers himself to be quite
fortunate to have worked in the high
school from which he graduated. He
said there are an "awful lot of good
kids here," and they have made his
work rewarding. There have been a
number of years when seven to nine of
the school's top students in the senior
class were in his program.
His expectations for students are
high. He insists they behave properly.
He demands respect, and he has the
ability to make the learning fun. Yet he
stresses preparation and hard work.
"I've always expected of them
that they would act and behave as
though their mamma was standing
next to them," he said. "I don't want
to portray myself as perfect. I've
made my mistakes. I try to learn from
my mistakes. I always try to act in
a way that I expect them to conduct
themselves."
Philpot said he has always tried
to instill in students the importance
of what they were doing and the
importance of agriculture. Although
he recognizes that only 2 percent of
the nation's work force is actually
farmers, he noted that 20 percent
are involved in agriculture-related
businesses.
Looking back on his career, Philpot
rocked back in his chair when asked
what he was most proud of as an
agriculture instructor and FFA advisor.

"I'm most proud of the fact that the
kids I'm teaching, that 1 have made a
difference in their lives," he said. "I'm
also equally proud of the relationships
I've fostered in agricultural classes.
The relationships with kids, has also
led to relationships with parents.
Some of my best friends today came
from working,with their kids in high
school."
McCoy remembers learning under
Philpot while the state-champion
parliamentary procedure team was
training in an unheated and un-air
conditioned agriculture building.
There were long hours of rigorous
training in the building, but Philpot
had a way of making the students love
what they were learning while they
drilled on what they needed to do.
McCoy said Philpot instilled in
him and other students the need for
preparation and to work hard if they
were to succeed. Those values became
part of his life and helped him prepare
for adulthood.
"Robert has great value and he
is gifted with being able to motivate
young adolescents to perform at their
highest level," McCoy said. "And he
can make it fun."

Liberals say


the darndest


things

By Rick Burnham
Editor

T h6 mind of a liberal is a highly
sophisticated mechanism, a
complex mass of circuits and
waves capable of reason and
understanding few of us regular rednecks can
comprehend.
Fortunately, the mind of a liberal is also
highly entertaining.
That's what I was thinking the other night
when I accidentally came across the nightly
news on MSNBC, a channel that I had
previously sworn to never tune in to, because
it represents the enemy camp. But I stumbled
across it on the way to something the rest
of us mindless drones watch wrestling or
tractor pulls or something andc decided to
hang out for a moment or two.
This is what I heard them say, and I swear
I am not making this up: the back-to-back
blizzards that blanketed the eastern seaboard
with snow the first half of February were
caused by global warming. It seems that
the warmer air caused by global warming
contains more moisture, which produces
snow when mixed with ... air cold enough to
produce snow.
I am sending a dry cleaning bill to
MSNBC, because the shirt I was wearing
while I watched their newscast was stained
by the sweet tea that came out of my nose as
I laughed harder than I ever have in my life.
They went on to say that the snowfall in
Washington, D.C. broke the previous record
of the 54.4 inches that fell in 1898. That's
when global warming was probably caused
by the mule and wagon. The SUV version of
the mule and wagon.
The record snowfall in St. Louis? Feb.
26, 1906. In Austin, Texas? Nov. 22, 1937.
Caribou, Maine got 181 inches of snow in
the winter of 1954-55. Each an incredible
weather phenomenon undoubtedly caused by
global warming, brought on by whatever the
liberals of the day were saying would kill us
and the polar bears. Top hats. Silent screen'
movies. Pop up toasters. Cellophane. Mr.
Potato Head.
Liberals crack me up. They say the
darndest things.
"The American public wants universal
health care." "It's Bush's fault." "The War
in Iraq is lost." "Nancy Pelosi is a sexy
grandma." "A zebra doesn't change its
spots." "Outside of the killings, Washington
has one of the lowest crime rates in the,
country. "It is hard to talk when you are
teabagging."
That last one came courtesy of CNN
Anderson Cooper, who masquerades as an
objective newsman, talking about the early
days of the Tea Party movement. His crude
and filthy reference to a sex act helped spark
a movement that put Scott Brown in Ted
Kennedy's old senate seat, and will assist in
replacing warped liberal minds all across the
land in November.
With any luck, that will remove Nancy
. *Pel6si, the "sexy grandma," from her perch
atop the House of Representatives. Mrs.
Pelosi deserves her own page on this subject,
but available space dictates she receive only
a paragraph or two.
"Every week we don't pass a stimulus
package, 500 million Americans lose their
jobs," Nancy said. If that doesn't make
sweet tea come out of your nose, nothing
will. There are only about 280 million
people currently living in the.United
States. "I believe in natural gas as a clean,
cheap alternative to fossil fuels. It's cheap,
abundant and clean compared to fossil fuels,"
Nancy quipped. Last time I checked, natural
gas was a fossil fuel.
Don't blame Nancy. She is second in line
to the U.S. presidency because people could
not detect a far-left mindset behind the "sexy
grandma" image. She and others like her are
in power because people still associate the
Democratic Party with Harry Truman and
John F. Kennedy, rather than the Progressive
Socialist movement that has now taken over.
If there is a silver lining to having
liberals around, it's that they will continue to
enlighten us with entertaining thoughts and


commentary, such as Al Gore's suggestion
that he invented the Internet, or Vice
President Joe Biden's assertion that Barack
Obama is "the first mainstream African-
American who is articulate and bright and
clean and a nice-looking guy."
They do say the damdest things.

Raising national debt limit

raises ire of Obama's conservative critics


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


a big fan of the John Birch Society. It's too
Conservative for me. At the same time, I
never close my mind to different points of
view. When I search for ways to cut through the political
rhetoric in Washington, sometimes I find it useful to
examine what liberals might consider to be political
heresy. I listen to organizations like the John Birch
Society to find out what they are saying.
The John Birch Society has entered the world
of journalism by publishing its own magazine -
NewAmerican. The magazine caters to its conservative"
readership. It has the right to express its views under
the First Amendment of the United States Constitution,
just like liberal publications. While surfing the
Internet Sunday, I found the writings of NewAmerican
contributor Thomas R. Eddlem. I enjoyed,his
commentary.,
Eddlem reminded his readers in a recent online story
that President Barack Obama on Feb. 13 signed a law
raising the national debt limit by $1.9 trillion. Under
the new law Congress can borrow up to $14.3 trillion.
Eddlem said the nation is on a path to being $4.3 trillion
deeper in debt after Obama's first year in office.
Obama isn't spending the money all by himself. The
U.S. Congress has the constitutional authority to pass
spending bills and the President, in this case Obama,
has the authority to sign the spending bills into law.
Some conservatives believe Obama is circumventing
his constitutional authority and creating law with his
presidency. In any case, the president and Congress are
responsible for this latest bout of reckless federal fiscal
policy. Rather than cutting federal spending, they have
made it possible to borrow much, much more money.
According to Eddlem, the increased borrowing limit
will amount to $15,000 of debt for every household
in the United States. At a time when many people are
reluctant to borrow or spend money in their personal
budgets due to the recession, I find it ironic that Obama
and the U.S. Congress are spending tax dollars like it's
play money. The psychological effect of such spending
is to generate distrust of the government at a time when
the nation is struggling through the toughest recession in
60 years.
To be fair, President George W. Bush was also a big
spender, in my opinion. He led the country into two
wars we are still fighting. The cost of those wars is a
part of the escalating federal debt, along with Obama's
bailout of the. big Wall Street mortgage banks and a
couple car companies in Detroit.
Eddlem doesn't care which party he offends.
You might say he is an equal opportunity political
critic. That's why I like his writing. He says he made
conservatives angry when he criticized the spending
practices of President Bush while he was in office.
Bush had campaigned as a fiscal conservative. The
truth is Bush was a big spender, but he spent the money
on wars and the military. Most conservatives ignored
Bush's spending. It was politically incorrect to criticize
a Republican leader. Obama promised to cut federal
spending, but he is spending trillions on frivolous
domestic initiatives. The Democrats are adhering to the
same political correctness principle as the Republicans.
They refuse to criticize the spending habits of Obama,
their man in the White House.
To be fair, Bush was the president who led us out of
the 9/11 terrorist attacks. I think he did an outstanding
job in that regard. I never really liked Bush as a
president, but I do believe he was the right man for
the job when the terrorist attacks occurred. He kept
the nation stable and focused on what it needed to do,
and he was gutsy about retaliating against the Taliban
in Afghanistan, led by Osama Bin Laden. The Taliban
leaders, particularly Bin Laden, were responsible for the
9/11 attacks. The U.S. military drove the Taliban from
Afghanistan. But the Taliban has returned.
More recently, I supported Obama's sale of more
than $4 billion in weapons and defensive missiles
to Taiwan, an island nation that communist China


considers a renegade province. Taiwan is a United States
ally. I also support Obama's ongoing efforts to sweep
the Taliban out of strongholds in Afghanistan. The last
thing we need is for Bin Laden to set up housekeeping
in Afghanistan again and launch another 9/11-type
terrorist attack against the United States.
Bush and Obama appear to have one thing in
common. They apparently are bad at math when it
comes to federal- spending. The federal overspending
during the past decade should have been obvious to
even the most mathematically-challenged Americans,
conservative or Democrat. But Obama and Bush
apparently were blind to the overspending. Now,
Obama has signed a bill raising the national borrowing
limit to $14.3 trillion.
I think the American people have lost confidence
in the federal government. They know Obama and
Congress should be'focused on restoring a stable
economy and eliminating the recession that has plagued
the nation for more than two years. The American
people know that gasoline and diesel prices are much
too high. They know the price of fuel is like a massive
hidden tax, an economy-buster. They know Obama is
ignoring the problem.
Obama talked a good game in his State of the Union
address. He spoke about giving Americans more jobs
by building clean energy facilities, giving rebates to
Americans who'make their homes more energy-efficient
and slashing tax breaks for companies that send jobs
overseas. He said the House has passed a "jobs bill" to
help cut the unemployment rate.
I agree with some of what he said. Slashing tax
breaks for overseas companies is a.good idea. It could
bring overseas jobs back to the United States. But
domestic business taxes also need to be reduced as a
further incentive to bring back industry. I doubt Obama
has the political sense or will to reduce domestic taxes
for business and industry. I will keep an open mind.
,Building clean energy facilities and giving rebates
to Americans who make their homes more energy
efficient isn't going to put a dent in the recession. In
reality Obama was reaffirming his personal political
agenda. I didn't hear him promise to abandon his plan
to financially penalize electric companies and electric
cooperatives for generating electricity with fossil fuels
- the so called cap and trade proposal. Critics say it
would substantially raise the cost of electricity. I believe
them.
I seriously doubt Americans would save enough
money by insulating their homes to recoup what they
lose through the additional costs imposed by the cap and
trade plan.
Obama also boasted in his speech about building
a high speed railroad in Florida and funding it with
stimulus funds. I frankly don't see how a high speed
railroad will bring about an economic recovery in Levy
County or Florida for that matter. The only stimulus
monies of any significance that have come into Levy
County were those used to resurface a short segment of
County Road 40 in the south part of the county. It had
zero impact on the county's economy.
In his speech, Obama ignored the excessively high
cost of gasoline and diesel, as though he doesn't consider
it a problem. He did mention that federally elected
officials must make tough decisions about additional
off-shore drilling, but didn't endorse the idea of doing
more drilling nor did he champion the idea of increasing
our domestic oil and natural gas production to make the
country energy independent.
The cost of fuel at the retail pump has raised the cost
of transporting goods and food to the market and flattened
the wallets of American car and truck owners. Rising
fuel costs has substantially raised the cost of electricity
generation. It is ruining the American economy.
We need more than slick speeches from the White
House to end the recession. We need common sense
solutions. Both political parties need to roll up their
sleeves to work together on solutions to the problems
facing the nation rather than waiting for future elections
to find out which party gains control of Congress and the
presidency. The Democrats and Republicans are spinning
their wheels if they take that approach.

Chiefland FFA auction, chili cookoff benefits chapters

Story, photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Chiefland FFA Alumni and FFA
Chapter leaders raised $2,641 last
week selling cakes, pies and peanut
brittle at a fund raising auction.
Karen andMurray Tillis ofTillis
Farms paid the highest price for
baked goods when they bid $170
for a four-layer candy bar cake.
Karen Tillis out-bid all her
competitors.
The cake auction was preceded
by a chili cookoff. Loran Brookins
won Best Overall honors with
his gut buster chili. The win was
made more special by the fact that
Brookins used the recipe of his late
mother Mary Brookins to make the
chili.
R.D. Skelton won for Most
Spicy chili. His concoction
brought tears to the eyes of some
FFA members and their parents. It
was SPICY. Skelton said he:used
five hot sauces to ensure that none
of the sauces' dominated the flavor.
His chili was popular, but some
people drank tea to soften the fiery
flavor.
Brooke Ward won Most Original
for her beef and pork chili.
Carolyn Hart, publicist for the
FFA Alumni, said the cake and pie
auction is an annual event, and so
is the chili cookoff, but they are
usually on different dates. This
year the events were combined to
give buyers a chance to eat chili
while they waited for the auction
to begin.
"This is the first time we've
had something to eat at the cake
auction," she said.
It was the 1st Annual Chili
Cookoff and Auction.
The Chiefland High School
and Chiefland Middle School FFA
Chapters will receive the proceeds
from the. cake auction.
Hart said the Alumni awards
scholarships annually to deserving
seniors and it helps defer expenses
when the FFA chapters go to state
competition.


Winners of the FFA chili cookoff are Best Overall winner Loran Brookins, Most Original Brooke Ward and
Most Spicy R.D. Skelton.

Williston overcomes adversity to win district


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Ordinarily, when a team wins a
conference ..championship and its
margin of victory is in double digits,
it's a safe assumption that the team put
forth a superb effort.
But this is certainly no ordinary year
for District 5-3A boys' basketball. And
Williston is certainly no average team.
One night after a monumental
victory over Santa Fe, the Red Devils
struggled to maintain intensity and
exhibited "hangover" symptoms in a
67-53 victory over Suwannee County
Saturday for the District 5-3A title.
Williston led the Bulldogs at
best the district's No. 3 team by two
points after one period and by nine at
the half before pulling away after the
intermission. The Red Devils put the
game away by outscoring Suwannee
County 34-20 in the second and third
quarters combined.
With the win, the Red Devils advance
to a Thursday meeting with Wildwood

Bronson softball gets comeback win


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's varsity girls' softball
team launched a 5-run fifth-
inning offensive attack to defeat
Hawthorne 13-9 last week.
The Lady Eagles led the
game early but fell behind in the
top of the fourth when the Lady
Hornets scored 3 runs, two off of
overthrows at home plate.
But Bronson fought back in
the bottom of the fifth to load
the bases twice and drive in the 5
runs. The Lady Eagles took an 11-
9 lead it never gave back.
The big play in the fifth inning
was senior Becca Rodgers'
stealing of home plate. She slid
into base and knocked the catcher
on her back.
Angela Freeman' and Kelsie
Russell scored right behind her
when Melissa Nutt slapped a hit
into the outfield.
Destiny Lemay hit a double
into left field in the bottom of the
6h inning. Eighth grader Danie
Williams drove her home with a
blast that nearly carried to the left

Kelsie Russell leaps
beat her to the plate.


Wildwood 'D'


too much for


Lady Red Devils

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor.

WILDWOOD Defense wins championships.
That, more than any other reason, is why the
championship aspirations of Wildwood High School
are still alive, and why Williston's title hopes are done
for another year.
It's not that the Lady Red Devils' defense was
porous during the team's regional quarterfinal matchup
Thursday in Wildwood, but rather that the Wildwood
defense was near perfect.
Wildwood held Williston to only 13 first-half
points and guard Ronisha Mitchell scored 22 points
as the Lady Wildcats advanced to the next round with
a convincing 54-37 win. Wildwood was scheduled to
travel to Suwannee County for a Tuesday matchup
with the Lady Bulldogs, who beat Trinity Catholic
43-34 on Thursday.
Williston looked good early on in the game, taking

Indians toss shutout

in preseason baseball

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland's varsity baseball team throttled Ocala St.
John's 14-0 last week in the First Pitch Classic, a preseason
tournament hosted by Chiefland.
The Indians sent in three pitchers. Jacob Reidy threw
3 strikeouts, walked 1 and gave up 1 hit in the first two
innings; Adam Burton gave up 1 hit and no walks in the
third and fourth innings; and Clenton Wasson struck out 2,
gave up 2 walks and no hits in the fifth and sixth innings.
Offensively Josh Martinez got 3 hits, Parish Parnell 2
hits and Cody Plemmons 2 hits to lead the Indians.
The championship game with Bronson was washed out
Saturday by rainfall.
Parnell said he thought his team played well. All three
pitchers showed good control working the ball around
home plate.
"They did well," Parnell said.
The team has three seniors. Burton is at shortstop and
also pitches. He bats in the number one slot.' Clenton
Wasson is a center fielder and pitcher. Jakaar White is an
outfielder.
Chiefland finished last season just a little over the .500
mark and Parnell has the nucleus of the 2009 Indians
playing for him again.
He said the team needs to improve its consistency on
defense.
"We still got a lot of work to do," Parnell said.
Chiefland was scheduled to host Dixie County Tuesday
night.


Highly ranked Williston cowboy returns


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

D despite a laundry list of
accolades and an entire "
china cabinet filled with
prize buckles, trophies
and more at his parents' home in
Williston, it's difficult to get Jared
Smith to brag about himself.
The Williston native who now
calls Cross Plains, 'Texas, home is
among the top 15 bareback bronc
riders in the world, and made it to the
National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas
in December, but it's his mother who tells about all
his accomplishments. Jared simply explains that he
doesn't plan on stopping anytime soon.
2010 is just getting underway and the Florida
boy will be returning to his home state this week
to do what he knows best: ride. His competitions
will take him to Dade City, Kissimmee and
Okeechobee before he visits his home in Williston.
Jared, who participated in 100 professional
rodeos last year, wasn't satisfied with having the
opportunity to compete with the best of the best.
The 22-year-old said he plans on making it all the


way.
"Every rodeo cowboy's dream is
to be a world champion and I'm no
different," he said.


Becoming a champion
A rudimentary childhood photo
album shows that Jared and his older
brother, Casey, grew up working
livestock, taking care of puppies,
and playing with wild animals like
alligators. The love of animals and
being outdoors started early with
these two cowboys. -
But the talent they both ended up
having was natural-born and God-given, said their
mother, Julie, who is a senior grant specialist in the
University of Florida Emerging Pathogens Institute.
Since 2003, the Smith parents have attended
a national championship every year for their
two sons: through high school, college and now
professionally.
Casey, 23, participates in team roping. Now
a farrier, Casey also has his fair share of awards,
including: the Florida Junior Rodeo Association

an 8-4 lead after baskets by Lateria Walker and Ericka Floyd with 3:35 left

But Wildwood responded with an 8-0 run to close out the quarter.
Ja'quasha Sesler scored six of those, including a pair on a layup at the
buzzer, to make it 12-8 after one period.
Williston struggled in the second period, scoring only a single point over
the first 4:18. Wildwood, meanwhile, scored seven over that period to go up
19-9. Cinnemon Robinson came back with a layup following a steal, and
Kae'etta Jackson hit a 10-footer moments later to make it 19-13.
But the Lady Wildcats closed out the half with a pair of baskets a

Williston had its moments early in the second half. Floyd hit a driving

Wildwood scored nine of the final 14 points four each by Ronisha Mitchell

Williston assistant coach Sherika Jackson said the Lady Red Devils got
very few offensive opportunities against Wildwood, and failed to capitalize
on the ones they got.
"They outhustled us," she said. "We normally run the floor and keep up,
but tonight they just outhustled us. They collapsed on Erica (Mason) when
she tried to penetrate, and no one else stepped up, basically."
Jackson scored 15 for Williston, while Mason picked up 11. Floyd picked

Williston finds salvation with win over Santa Fe


Story and photos by Rick Bumham
Editor

The Santa Fe High School
gymnasium was still abuzz a good
15 minutes after the conclusion of
Friday's semifinal matchup between
Williston and Santa Fe, with players
and coaches and spectators alike
contemplating what they had just
witnessed.
Williston's 77-71 overtime win
sparked words of amazement and
disbelief, and, in Coach Steve
Faulkner's case, salvation.
"I feel like an 800-pound gorilla
has just jumped off my shoulders," he
said.
Despite a stellar 2009-10 regular
season, Faulkner's team faced
elimination againstthe talented Raiders
due to Williston High School's now
infamous.clerical error that resulted in.
an ineligible player, and the forfeiture
of 18 games. Instead of facing the
district's second best team Santa Fe -
in the tournament title game, Williston
got the Raiders in round two.
The winner would advance to the
next round, while the loser would head
home hence the added burden on
Faulkner. Williston players very likely
felt the same pressure, particularly
when Santa Fe's C.J. Wakeley hit a
3-pointer with two seconds left in
regulation to tie the game.
But the Red Devils shined in the
extra period, scoring 16 points in
four minutes, including the first nine
by James Monroe. .The guard, who
transferred to Williston late in the
season from Jacksonville, hit a three-
pointer to begin the streak, and added
three layups for good measure.
"He was huge," Faulkner said after
the game.
Still, Williston nursed a one-point
lead at 70-69 following a pair of free
throws by Santa Fe's Cory Key with
1:01 left. But Jacques Edwards and
Isaac Floyd hit back-to-back layups,
and Monroe converted one of two
free throws, to make it 75-69 with 20
seconds left.
Key scored Santa Fe's last points of
the season oh a layup with nine seconds
left, and Williston's Deonte Welch hit
a pair of free throws with less than
a second remaining to conclude the
scoring.
Welch led his team with 24 points
and nine rebounds in the game, while


Floyd picked up 18 points and six
boards.
Santa Fe'sAshton Lee led all players
in the game with 26 points, while Key
finished with 18 and Wakeley 15.
Nine of Lee's points came in a first
half that saw Santa Fe lead by as many
as nine points. The Raiders took a 19-
10 advantage on a pair of Lee free
throws at the 6:37 mark of the second
quarter, and later went up 21-12 when
the lanky junior scored an inside basket
with 4:40 left.
But Williston battled back behind
Welch, who scored the final five points
of the half on a pair of inside baskets-
and a free throw.
The biggest lead either team could
muster in the third quarter was three,
when Santa Fe took a 27-24 advantage
on a shot by Frank Snead with 6:30
left. There were six lead changes in
the third quarter including at the
end when two Welch free throws put
Williston up 36-35.
The Red Devils trailed only once
in the fourth quarter at 37-36 when
Lee grabbed an offensive rebound and
scored with 7:30 left in regulation.
Williston went up 53-43 on a Welch
layup with 2:40 left, but the Raiders got
contributions by five different players
down the stretch, 'including Wakeley,
whose 3-pointer from the left side of
the court with three seconds left was
perfect, sending the partisan Santa Fe
crowd into hysterics.
Williston got off a long shot by
Welch as the buzzer sounded, and
there was some discussion by the
game officials as to whether he had
been fouled on the play. But they ruled
that the foul was called simultaneously'
with the buzzer, meaning nolfoul.
Faulkner met with the refs at
midcourt to argue the call, but the
decision stood, sending the game
to overtime. Faulkner gathered his
players prior to the extra period, and
the discussion became animated.
"I told them that they had this game
won in regulation, but that nothing
was going right," he said. "I told them
to go out and take it back."
And that's when the Red Devils
- led by Monroe took over.
Later, Faulkner said his team
showed great character with their
backs against the wall.
"They are warriors," he said. "I am
proud to be their coach."

County. Williston's Isaac Floyd and
Suwannee's Keith Cherry scored 16
points apiece.
Suwannee's Jimmy Taylor paced

seven first-quarter points. But Williston
countered with a-. balanced attack,
getting five each from Welch and


Floyd, and smaller contributions from
four other players. Williston led 19-17
after one.
Jacques Edwards scored five
second-quarter points part of an
11-point evening as the Red Devils
increased the lead in the second quarter.

only hit six of 11.
The Bulldogs mounted a challenge
of sorts in the fourth period, outscoring

points in the frame. But the rally was
far too little, and far too late.
Suwannee found its way into the
title game with a 53-38 win over
Newberry on Friday. The Bulldogs

team when Williston found it had to
forfeit 18 regular-season wins due to

archery tourney


going live in


Newberry Feb. 27
i-7

The 2010 Florida National Archery in the
Schools Program (NASP) State Tournament will
be held in Newberry on Feb. 27.
The tournament will be conducted in two
formats: a live tournament competition that will
take place atthe Easton-Newberry Sports Complex
and a virtual tournament for schools that cannot
afford to travel, according to Steve Robbins
of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC), Florida's National Archery
in the Schools Program coordinator.
"The virtual tournament will allow schools to
shoot for score in their own gymnasium and have
their results compiled in a database of live and
virtual tournament participants," Robbins said.
Schools started shooting Feb. 8 and will continue
through Feb. 19, and then they'll mail in their
results.
Scores from the live tournament will be
compared to the results of the virtual tournament,
and winners will be selected and announced in
three divisions: elementary, middle and high
school.
"Trophies will be awarded to the top three
schools in each division, with each team member
receiving a medal. Trophies will also be awarded
to the top boy and girl shooter in each division,
with a Genesis bow presented to the top overall
boy and girl shooter," Robbins said.
Every participant, whether shooting in the live
or the virtual tournament, will receive a T-shirt
and a certificate.
"Archery is a great sport," Robbins said. "It
helps build muscle endurance and flexibility,
develop hand-eye coordination, and ,grip and
body strength. You don't have to be 6-foot-2 and
able to dunk a basketball to participate. Girls can
compete with boys, and youngsters with physical
disabilities can also participate."
This is the third year of the Florida NASP
State Tournament. The first two tournaments
were conducted entirely in a virtual format, with
592 kids shooting in 2008, and 751 in 2009.
NASP is a cooperative effort between the
FWC and the Florida Department of Education.
Before presenting the two-week archery course,
teachers undergo an eight-hour NASP Basic
Archery Instructor Training Program. The FWC
has certified teachers from 230 Florida schools to
be basic archery instructors.
The Easton-Newberry Sports complex held its
grand opening in October 2009, and is an ideal
location to conduct the State Tournament.

third.
Brooke Stevens scored the final run when
she stole home from first base on a series of
Hawthorne overthrows.
Bronson Coach Kenny Thomas said his
team's confidence was an important factor in
the win.
"I thought we played pretty good," he said.
"I think we came to the game expecting to
win, and we never really got rattled."
Thomas said his girls made early-season
mistakes that cost them runs, but he said those
problems can be corrected.
Some of the girls ignored third base Coach
Frank Schuler's signal to hold up at second
base and were thrown out at third.
But Thomas said problems like that can be
corrected at practice. Bronson's varsity softball team is shown after its win over Hawthorne. Kneeling from the left are

The team has only three seniors. Rodgers, liams, Becca Rodgers, Danie Williams and Assistant Coach Frank Schuler.
Freeman and Karrie Kelly are the senior class

next year with most of the team returning.
Kelsie Russell pitched for five innings
before April Benka replaced her. Russell and
Benka are Bronson's main pitchers. Thomas-
said he is working on developing a third
pitcher.
Benka is the most experienced pitcher and
was able to neutralize Hawthorne's bats in the
fifth and sixth innings.
"That pitching pretty much saved the deal.
She shut them down," Thomas said.
Russell also did a fine job in the early Becca'Rodgers bowls over the Hawthorne catch-

Bareback, from Page 1 B


A family photograph shows a 5-year-old Jar-
ed Smith preparing for his future rodeo ca-
reer by riding a calf, while his brother, Casey,
6, watches with amusemust.

State Bull Riding Championship in 2001 many
National Team Ropers League event awards, including
the 2009 #12 Champion Heeler and the 2006 Florida
Truck Champion, where he won a Ford F250 truck
Although the Smiths said they never pushed their
sons to rodeo, they were always supportive and
furnished whatever the boys needed.
But it comes as no surprise Jared and Casey fell
in love with rodeoing. Julie and Chris, who were
high school sweethearts at Williston High, were also
very involved in rodeoing growing up. Chris, who
is a farrier, was the State High School Saddle Bronc
Champion from '80-'81, and Julie competed in rodeos
in the Florida High School Rodeo from '78-'81 and
was the Florida High School Rodeo Queen from '80-
'81. '
Their sons also grew up around horses and cows,
since the family owns a 35-acre ranch.
"They started putting on cowboy hats and playing
when they were little," Julie said.
The boys were still in diapers when they were
being led on ponies. They started off riding calves and
then roping and participating in junior rodeos.
When Jared was 12, he started riding bareback
bucking horses, which kick-started the career that
earned him over $86;000 in winnings in 2009 and in
the top 15 bareback riders in the world.
He was granted a two-year college scholarship
from the San Antonio Rodeo, which he used to attend
Ranger College in Ranger, Texas. He received a
welding certificate in 2008 from Ranger College. He
then attended Western Texas College in Snyder.
It was at Ranger College that he met with college
rodeo coach Tom Reeves, who Jared credits for much
of his success.
He said Reeves taught him about time management
and how to enter rodeos at the right times and how to
compete in as many rodeos as possible, sometimes
-five in six days.
Reeves also taught him how to make the lifestyle
"more of a good time than a job."
"When you look at it like a job, that's when you get
burned out," Jared said.

The Midnight Riders
Jared is no stranger to winning awards. At 13, he
won the Florida Junior Rodeo Bareback title. He
was the Rookie of the Year at the National High
School Rodeo Finals in 2003, and in 2005 he won the
International Finals Youth Champion Bareback title
in Shawnee, Okla. What he calls his prize possession
is'a pair of spurs he won in 2008 at the Silver Spurs
Rodeo in Kissimmee, last year. Before competing
in the National Finals Rodeo, he was named the
Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Rookie of
the Year in 2008.
His travel partner, Steven Peebles, was, named
2009 Rookie of the Year. The two started traveling
together almost a year ago after Peebles set his sights
on earning the Rookie title and figured Jared would be
an appropriate partner.
The two traveled to Las Vegas together to compete
in the National Finals Rodeo, which is like the
Superbowl for cowboys, Julie said.
Jared, who joined the Professional Rodeo Cowboys
Association in 2008, came out 15th in the 2009 World
Standings. Peebles earned 12th.
Peebles, 20, said he and Jared are together almost
non-stop now: eating, sleeping and rodeoing together.
And although he said Jared can be a little hard-headed
sometimes, they are both open-minded, so they get
along well.
He said Jared is high-energy and never relaxes for
very long.
"He's always busy, always finding something to
do. He's kinda like a little kid"'
As anyone who knows the partners are bareback
riders could guess, the two are admittedly both
daredevils and enjoy doing "anything crazy."
The two were deemed "The Midnight Riders"
when they rode all night from Sisters, Ore. to make
the deadline for the College Finals in Casper, Wy. in
June.
The media caught hold of their story and came up
with their slogan: "We don't show up to win first. We

show up to break records."
Jared's success has earned him quite a bit of
celebrity in the state and the area, Julie said.
Everybody in Florida having to do with rodeo
knows about Jared, she said.
He is the first from Florida to ever make it to the
Nationals Finals Rodeo in bareback riding, and there
have only been six from Florida to ever make it to the
finals in any event, Julie said.
Although Jared said he rarely gets nervous, he
admitted it felt like his heart rate was going 100 mph
throughout the competition. '
"When we first got there, it felt like I was kinda in
somebody else's skin," he said.

The rodeo life
Jared said his favorite things about his chosen
career are the people he meets and the traveling.
"You wake up in the morning and decide what you
want to do," he said. "You live your own life the way
you want to."
Although he says he has no regrets, Jared does
admit being a professional rider has its drawbacks as
well.
"Every now and then you have to have a break
from rodeoing."
Life on the road can get very tiresome, especially
when he spends months away from his home in
Texas. .
And while the money is good, the travel expenses
of competing in 100 professional rodeos in one year
do cut into the earnings, Chris said.
"He may have won $86,000 last year but it cost
$87,000 to compete," Chris joked.
Competing professionally really takes a business
mind because the riders must keep track of when to
call in to compete in certain rodeos, where the rodeos
are and how much money they are earning, he said.
"It takes a real work ethic to get that far," he said.
Julie has found herself on the phone with her son
late at night looking up flights on the computer. She is
also the first one he calls after a ride.


"He's been ragged as a Momma's Boy," Julie
admitted.
"I just know what can happen. I just want to know
you're OK," she said of her son's calls.
Julie and Chris recalled the one time Jared didn't call
early last year. They were following the competition
online and the video wasn't coming through but the
audio was.
All they could hear was that the rider had come
down early and was being helped out of the arena by
the sports medicine team.
It was probably 20 or 30 minutes until he called
and told his parents he had gotten knocked out and
had a concussion.
But "he rode the next night," Julie said.
All in all, though, "Jared's been pretty lucky so far
as injuries," she said.
He broke his arm in 10th grade and broke his hand
last year in mid-August, six weeks before the season
was over.
Last year's injury was hard on him, she said. "That
last six weeks we watched him fall" in the rankings
from ninth to 13h*.
Jared did not have much time to allow his hand
to recover because he was in the final stretch of
qualifying for the National Finals Rodeo.
He said he knew there was a good chance every
time he got back up on a horse, he would re-break the
hand, but it was a painful sacrifice he had to.make.
"It was worth it to make it to the finals," he said.
Next year, he plans on winning a couple more
major rodeos, like Houston and Prescott, and earning
between $150,000 and $200,000.
Being a contender in the National Finals Rodeo is
just the starting point and if he sets a goal, he plans on
seeing it through. Losing is never an option.
"I feel like I lost if I didn't achieve my goals," Jared
said. And his next goal is being the world champion.
Eventually, he said he plans on earning enough to
settle down and have a cattle business in either Texas
or Oklahoma, where he says there aren't as many
people.

The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Our trip to the State Fair
was great. We saw blue, red, white and
yellow ribbons and it was enjoyable.
The traffic going down and coming
back was very busy but we had a safe
.day, a great bus drive and we look
forward to next year.
A lot of quilting was done on
Thursday and it was great to have
Dorothy Riggs back. She and her
husband were down earlier and her
husband got sick so they returned to
Illinois. He is much better now so they
are back.
Our lunch Thursday was turkey
casserole, Chinese cabbage, Chi-mi-
chui-ney, goulash, rice casserole, peas,
baked beans, green beans and potatoes,
potato soup, chicken salad, bean salad,

Otter Creek to get opportunity for 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 groups
"such as area churches, schools, and civic organizations
"will be given a preference over regional and national
.applicants.
A Georgia consulting firm, Christian Community
iBroadcasts (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.

high school and middle school football
players Monday night at the annual
awards banquet, with senior quarterback
Kelby Barber taking Most Valuable
Player honors for the varsity and Alleni, Coce

The banquet ended on an emotional -
note when Barber and the team presented
Coach Al Cooksey with a framed team
picture and poem autographed 'by the
entire team. The plaque and poem paid g
tribute to Cooksey's late wife Judy as the .
team's biggest supporter and most loyal
fan. She passed away unexpectedly just
before Christmas.

in the Big 10 Conference and three
members of the team were voted All

years if the community would help the
school board .in generating funds to
build the facility.
Hastings said money is tight in the
current economy and football pays its
own way, but when the cost of other
school sports are factored into the
equation, Bronson is losing money on
its sports program.
He said the community has an
important role to play in raising money
to build the stadium. He believes there

the football stadium lights it costs $500
regardless of how long the lights run.
The longer the lights are operated, the
higher the power bill.
The school board is required by law to
balance its budget. He said it can't spend
money it doesn't have. He encouraged
community leaders to organize and help
raise the money needed to build a new
stadium.
"Everyone has to work together to be
successful," he said.

Middle School Honored
The Bronson Middle School football
team finished the season 8-1 and gave
up an average of just 12 points per
game while scoring an average of 25
points against opponents. Coach Greg
Hamilton and his staff had nothing but
praise for the team.
"It was a dream season in many
ways," Hamilton said.
Many of the award winners had
outstanding statistics.
Coaches Award winner Tyler
Beauchamp, the team's quarterback,


Devaughn Jenkins, often the tallest
player on the field, was recognized as the
team's top receiver. Coaches recalled his
spectacular catch in the Williston game
for the 2-point conversion. He leaped
above two defenders and managed
to come down with his feet inbounds
despite getting hit.
Kenny Perry received the Step-up
Award. Whenever the team needed a
big play, Perry would step-up and get it
done.
Jimmy Jones, described as the player
