Marie Meeks is Levy County's oldest career
educator at 100 years young. She holds a Master's
Degree from the University of Florida and taught
for 35 years at schools in Double Sink, Ellzey,
Otter Creek, Gulf Hammock, Cedar Key and
Chiefland.
She taught Sunday School for 75 years at
Ellzey First United Methodist Church. Her hair
dresser, Ida Mae Watson of Chiefland, has styled
her hair for the past 65 years. Her son Jamds R.
"Jimmy" Meeks, 76, was born in the home where
she still lives in Ellzey, just south of Otter Creek.
"Really school, family and church is all she's
known," her son Jimmy Meeks said.
An estimated 285 people attended her 100th
birthday celebration at her home in February.
Nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and
friends from throughout Florida and other states


honored the much respected
family.


elder of the Meeks


"I've lived-a blessed life, blessed in every way," she said
Saturday.
Mrs. Meeks was the oldest of 11 children born to Waldo
and Ethel Gilley of Williston. The Gilley home once stood
where the current Williston Municipal Airport is located
today. The government confiscated her parents' home to
establish a World War II Air base at the site.
Her birth came two years after Henry Ford introduced
the Model T. She has lived through the terms of 18 U.S.
presidents. Meeks and her younger sister, Thelma, walked
to school in Williston each day from their home in Orange
Hill. They were ages 6 years and 5 years old.
"That shows you, times were a lot safer then," she said.
"Imagine two young girls walking that far to school alone."
There were no paved roads when she was a child and no
publicly owned school buses. She said people could build
their own school bus by constructing a box on the back of
a truck. The first time she rode in one she suffered from
motion sickness.
She attributes her long life in large part to her late
husband, J.R. "Coot" Meeks. Some called him Rufus. He

Two Chiefland residents were severely injured Saturday on
SW 5th St. when the scooter they were riding was struck from
behind by a drunken driver and they were dragged for 164 feet
before being thrown off.
Chiefland police said the pickup truck driven by Gumercindo
Diaz, 48, continued dragging the scooter for an additional 860
feet before the scooter dislodged itself and Diaz left the scene
of the wreck,
Diaz-admitted to drinking beer and hitting an object on his
way home on Buie Park Road but denied knowing the object
he hit was two people on a scooter. He was arrested on charges
of driving under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident
with great injury and resisting or opposing an officer without
violence.
The riders on the scooter were identified as Tonya Yvonne
Brown, 31, and Kentrail Young, 28, both of Chiefland.
Witnesses gave police a description of the vehicle. They
said the riders were two Hispanic males. Law enforcement
began a massive search which ended when Deputy Clint
Anderson saw a vehicle matching the description behind a
house at 7350 N.W. 55"h Ave.
The vehicle had severe front dami.igc and was in complete
disarray with vomit inside and outside the driver's side of

Less students means

loss of district dollars
By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Levy County school district has lost $850,000 worth
of student enrollment.
The Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) count was taken in
February and the school board's forecast of the number of
students in the Levy School system was about 118 points
off, School Board of Levy County Director of Finance Bob
Clemons announced at the public school board meeting
March 2.
FTE is the unit of measurement the state public school
system uses to base funding. One FTE accounts for five hours
per day, Clemons said. One FTE usually equals one student.
The school district takes "snapshots," or counts of students,.
every year in October and in February. In November, the
district predicts how much the FTE will change from the
current year to the upcoming year.
For the 2008-2009 school year, the Levy County school
board forecasted a decrease of about 30 FTE. However, due
to the economy, the district lost over 200 FTE, which cost the
district over $2 million in state revenue, Clemons said.
This school year, the district forecasted the change in
students to be essentially a flat line, or no change, because
they figured there was already a large amount of students lost
the previous year, so there couldn't be much more of a loss.

Land raises


question for


Chiefland

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A controversial piece of property just north
of the Chiefland city limits has become a major
audit issue for Chiefland city commissioners.
The board voted Monday to instruct City
Attorney Norm Fugate to contact the Suwannee
River Water Management District to clarify
what it plans to do with the balance of the
money the city spent in 2004 to lease the 155-
acre property as a wellhead protection site for
the city. The lease was supposed to give the city
the option to buy the entire property.
The decision to make a legal inquiry of
SRWMD resulted from the audit question..
City Auditor Robert Beauchamp notified
the city in a March 5 letter that the city pre-
paid $160,000 to SRWMD in 2004 to lease the
155 acres as a wellhead protection site with an
option to buy. The expenditure is still on the
city's books.
- The city purchased 33 acres of the property
in 2009 for a future well site, but Beauchamp
said SRWMD retained $127,000 the city
prepaid on the remaining 122 acres of the land.
Beauchamp said he is nearing completion of
the latest city audit. He wants the city to clarify
what will happen to the money the city paid for
the 122 acres.
"It's kind of a major issue -- $127,000,"
Beauchamp said.
The city would like to buy the 122 acres.
SRWMD Executive Director David Still
told the Journal several months ago in a
hallway conversation at the district that the
agency would be willing to sell the property to
the city if that's what the city wants. Governing
Board Chairman Don Quincey was standing at
his side at the time and agreed SRWMD would
have no objections to selling the 122 'acres to
the city, but both men said it would have to go
to the full Governing Board for a vote. They
said,they could not make a final commitment
without board approval.
The issue has been a hot potato.
Mayor Teal Pomeroy sent the District a
letter on March 17, 2009 saying the city wished
to enter into discussions with SRWMD to

Bronson's locked park bathrooms cause problems

for handicapped man at Bark-N-Purr concert


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's attempt to stop vandalism at the public bathrooms in the Bronson
Sports Complex led to an unexpected problem Friday when a handicapped adult
was locked out of the bathrooms, leading to a brief crisis.
The Bronson Town Council agreed Monday to investigate the possibility of
installing doors that lock and unlock automatically with an electronic timer to
avoid the problem in the future.
Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford said the town locks the bathrooms at 4
p.m. because of the extreme vandalism that has taken place in the past, including
sinks knocked off the wall and human feces deliberately left on the floor.
He said the town doesn't discriminate against anyone.
Dianne Clark ran into the problem when her son Jason, who is mentally
handicapped and has hip dysplasia, asked his mother during a visit to the park to
take him to the park's bathrooms. Clark found the doors locked while it was still
daylight.
She approached a uniformed sheriff's deputy and a uniformed volunteer

CI corrections


A story in the March 4 edition of
the Levy County Journal, "County's
appointment of board member sparks
fierce debate," contained two errors
involving names. County Planning
Commissioner Toni Collins was
incorrectly listed as Toni Parker,
and the first name of County
Commissioner Danny Stevens was
omitted.
In addition, a story in the March 4
edition of the paper said a two-vehicle
accident on State Road 27A involved a


Department of Transportation vehicle.
The vehicle in question was actually a
Levy County vehicle, driven by Levy
County Road Department employees,
pulling a DOT piece of equipment.
Finally, a story about a Bronson
woman's selection as National
Watermelon Queen identified her
as the 2009 queen. Jessica Southard
is actually the 2010 National
Watermelon Queen.
The Journal regrets the errors it
was just one of those weeks.

VOICE worker for the sheriff's office who had been posted to help direct traffic
for the Bark-N-Purr Charity Concert at the park that was about to begin.
The sheriff's officers. said Jason could go to the portable toilets about 100
feet away. But the entrance to the toilets was taped off and Jason was physically
unable to walk that far. Clark said when the deputies were told about Jason's
disabilities, they told Clark they didn't know what they could do for her.
Clark said they never offered to let her drive to the portable toilets. She was
forced to drive Jason to a friend's home and by that time he had waited too
long and soiled his pants. Sheriff Johnny Smith said he doubted the deputies
deliberately prevented the handicapped adult from using the portable toilets. He
said they were probably caught off guard by what happened and were not sure
what to do, but he would talk to them.
Clark wanted to know if the town could legally lock up their bathrooms at the
park during, operating hours and prevent a handicapped person from using the
facilities.
"Isn't there a disabilities law that prevents that?" she said.
The council offered to check into the automatically locking doors. The doors
have an interior push handle to avoid locking people in the bathroom.
Land, from Page 1A


purchase the remaining 122 acres
of land for use as a passive public
recreation area. They said a passive
public recreation area would be
compatible with the Florida Forever
funding the district used to buy the
*land. The District never responded to
the letter.
Pomeroy and City Manager Grady
Hartzog appeared at the SRWMD
Governing Board meeting on' Nov.
23, 2008 to ask if the District would
consider allowing the city to purchase
the remaining 122 acres of the property.
The city never received an answer.
There ,is another political issue that
may be complicating the question.
The Nature Coast Regional Water
Supply Authority has indicated an
interest in using the 122 acres as a
wellhead site. The authority is in the
process of conducting a feasibility
study that will determine, among other
things, where its well fields could be
located. One potential site is reportedly
the 122 acres.
City officials believe SRWMD has
stalled on giving the city an answer
because it wants to retain the option of
using the site for a Nature Coast Water
Supply Authority well site. SRWMD
has supported the creation of the
Nature Coast Water Supply Authority
for Gilchrist and Dixie Counties and
Fanning Springs. Chiefland refused to
join.
The 155-acre site, which SRWMD
refers to as the Drummond Property,
is located about one quarter mile north
of the Chiefland City limits at the
intersection of County Road 341 and


County Road 346. The city's position
is that the entire 155-acre site was
purchased with Florida Forever and
city money to be used as a Chiefland
Wellhead Protection Area. The city
doesn't want a large well sunk on the
adjoining 122 acres.
In an odd twist, the agreement the
city approved in 2004 to lease the 155
acres mentions only the 33 acres of
the 155 acres. Pomeroy said the City
Commission was "snookered" into
believing it was leasing the entire 155
acres. He doubts the City Commission
would have allocated the entire
$160,000 if commissioners had known
that the lease agreement was for 33
acres. He said the actual language in
the lease agreement showing the city
was leasing 33 acres didn't show up
until the document was recorded at the
courthouse.
"I know the original intent was a
lease on the entire 155 acres," he said.
"Were we snookered; yes. Should we
lie down, no; I don't think so."
Pomeroy said it is a lesson in
"reading the fine print," but at the
same time, he said the city's intent was
apparent. The agreement had SRWMD
investing $4,000 per acre in Florida
Forever money to buy the 155 acres.
The city invested $1,000 per acre as its
share, according to Pomeroy,
"Not one city commissioner knew
until afterward that the wording had
been changed," Pomeroy said.
Pomeroy and Vice Mayor Teresa
Barron were members of the city
commission when the lease agreement
was approved.

CES support of March of Dimes once again off the charts


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

It is early Friday afternoon at Chiefland Elementary
School, and Cherie Sussman, youth development
director of the March of Dimes, is all smiles.
Watching dozens of children make their way
around ilhe' 0. S track during the annual walk-a-thon,
in support of March of Dimes programs, Sussman
explains why the school is so near and dear to her
heart.
"This is my favorite school," she said of CES,
which raised more money than any other in Levy
and Alachua Counties in 2009. "They have already
surpassed their goal for the year they have $6,900
already. With the way the economy is, we are beyond
impressed by this school.."
More than 850 children from CES participated in
this year's event, said teacher Robin Cooley Hardee.
She added that the school has been supporting the
March of Dimes for more than 20 years. Over that
time, acceptance and understanding of the March of
Dimes has grown among students and their parents.
"We have been doing this for more than 20 years,
so we are in our second generation of kids," she said.
"By the time they get in the fifth grade they know
the routine and know what we are doing. They are
ready.
"This is the only organization that our school
raises money for. It is -a good organization that is
reputable people see when you are raising money
for the March of Dimes they know every dollar is
going for research and funding for premature babies
and birth defects."
The student who raises the most money for the
charity gets a free limousine ride to Gainesville,
where they go bowling and go out to eat, Cooley


Chiefland Elementary School students make their way around the school's track for the an-
nual Walk-a-thon, in support of the March of Dimes.


Hardee said. She added that a kindergarten student
at CES recently brought up a very mature point.
"I had a kindergartener ask me why we even
need prizes 'Why don't we just give all the money
to help the babies,'" she said. "I thought what a big
thought for a child. They know what it is about. We
feel very good about that."


The top student also gets to put a pie in the face
of Principal Patrice McCulley, Cooley Hardee said.
All of which promotes considerable participation
and generates impressive results, Sussman said.
"We are truly fortunate to have them as part of the
March of Dimes family," she said. "It is absolutely
incredible to be here at Chiefland Elementary."

Suwannee continues to fall, but rain expected

Story and photo by Terry WittU
Staff Writer A ,


The Suwannee River is continuing to fall and
conditions won't change in the short term, but stay
tuned.
National Weather Service meteorologist and
hydrologist Justin Palmer said rain is expected this
week, but the early forecast is for the heaviest rain to
fall in northern or middle Georgia rather than in South
Georgia where it might affect the Suwannee River.
But the forecast will become more precise as
midweek approaches.
The Suwannee River at Wilcox was at the top of
the bank last week before it began to fall. It crept over
the bank in parts of Fowler's Bluff with the aid of the
rising tide and a south wind.
Palmer, who works for the Southeast River Forecast
Center in Atlanta, said the El Nifio effect will continue
through April, depositing more rainfall than usual, but
how much more rain will fall is impossible to know
with any degree of accuracy. The strength of El Nifio
rains is difficult to predict.
In late April to early May the El Niflo is supposed to
wane and normal conditions will return.
Palmer said the cold winter months are about to
transition into a warmer and milder spring, typical of
this time of year. Thunderstorms will return and along
with the possibility of heavier rainfall accompanying
the thunders showers. Those heavier rains could affect
river levels.
The rain thus far produced an extended period of
high water on the Suwannee River but no flooding.


Lee Hane and Bobby Tison point to the 1988 flood mark at Hane's home on the Suwannee
River in Fowler's Bluff. The mark was registered by Pardue Land Surveying. The river behind
them was high last week. It crept 4 feet into Hane's front yard but quickly retreated.


Councilman expresses concern about flood zone maps


Two meetings

set to discuss

changes, in Levy

By Terry. Witt
Staff Writer

If the federal government's new flood
hazard map for Bronson is adopted,
half the town's business district would
be considered flood prone .and future
growth could be stifled by higher
insurance costs, City Councilman
Berlon Weeks said last week.
Weeks was referring to a manmade
mosquito control ditch that skirts the
western part of town but has been
designated as a potential flooding threat
for the area from County Road 337 to
the Levy County Agricultural Center,
Weeks said.
Weeks said the new flood zone maps
are grossly in error.


"It's ridiculous," he said. "Businesses
will have to have high dollar flood
insurance."
New flood zone hazard maps
have been developed by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) in cooperation with the
Suwannee River Water Management
District, Levy County and the Southwest
Florida Water Management District.
The maps show proposed changes
to 715 parcels of land located in Levy
County. Once adopted the new maps
would be used to determine which
properties are located in special flood
hazard areas for flood insurance
purposes.,
Bronson and Chiefland have both
been mentioned as areas with new flood
hazard designations, among them the
mosquito control ditch Weeks mentioned
at last week's Bronson Town Council
meeting. Before the maps are finalized
next year, residents will be given 90
days to appeal or protest FEMA's
proposed Digital Flood Insurance Rate
Maps (DFIRMS).


Property owners, realtors, lenders
and insurance agents are being invited
to attend an open house from 4 p.m.
to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 16 at the
Cedar Key Library (460 Second Street)
to review and comment on updated
DFIRMS. A second open house is set
for 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 18
at the Tommy Usher Center 506 S.W. 4th
Ave., Chiefland.
The new maps have been prepared
for Levy County and incorporated
areas including Cedar Key, Bronson,
Chiefland, Inglis, Otter Creek, Williston
and Yankeetown.
Weeks said FEMA flew over Bronson
after the 2004 hurricanes and noticed
the mosquito control ditch was flooded,
but he said the problem could easily
be corrected if a culvert in the ditch is
repositioned and cleaned out to allow
the water to flow to Chunky Pond. He
said the ditch also needs to be cleaned
out.
Making matters worse, Weeks said
the Suwannee River Water Management
District is in charge of the north bank


of the ditch which is described on the
map as a tributary of the Waccasassa
River, while the Southwest Florida
Water Management District controls the
south side, listed as the McGee Branch,
another river.
"The mosquito control ditch is not a
river," Weeks said.
Bronson's business district did not
flood during Hurricane Elena in 1986
when the storm dumped two feet of rain
on Levy County in 2 /2 days.
Chiefland city commissioners briefly
discussed the new flood maps Monday
night, noting that early indications are
that a portion of the Long Pond area in
south Chiefland would be impacted by
the new maps.
Commissioner Teresa Barron, who
doesn't live anywhere near Long Pond,
said she received a notice in the mail
about the new flood maps, but she wasn't
clear whether she would be personally
affected.
"I don't want to pay flood premiums
if I don't have to. My insurance is high
enough," Barron said.


Chiefland hopes to tap grant


for curbside recycling program


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland hopes to take advantage of
a federal grant program to begin curbside
recycling.
City commissioners voted Monday to
apply for an Environmental Protection Agency
Region 4 Resource Conservation Challenge
grant that would pay for the program for two
years.
Bob Wolk at Waste Pro, the city's garbage
service provider, said $2.45 monthly pickup
charge per residence would be covered by the
grant for the two year pilot program.
The city would have the option of continuing
the recycling program after the grant money
runs out. Staff hopes the program would be so
popular with residents that a majority would
want to continue the service.
Chiefland could receive a maximum of
$45,000.
Ifthe grant is awarded and curbside recycling
begins, Waste Pro would provide each home
with an 18-gallon recycling container to store
the materials until picked up by garbage crews
once a month and delivered to the Levy County
Landfill Transfer station east of Bronson.
In other business, commissioners received
confirmation the Florida Department of
Emergency Management says it is ranked high
enough to receive a federal $37,100 grant to
install an emergency generator at city hall to
.keep the facility operating in hurricanes.
The city is using a $5,000 grant from
Plum Creek as matching funds for the grant.
The Federal Emergency Management Agent
(FEMA) grant requires a 25 percent match.
The Plum Creek grant will provide most of the
matching dollars.


City Hall would serve as the city's
headquarters in an emergency and would
continue operating with the generator if
needed.
Commissioners heeded the advice of
Projects Manager Laurie Copeland and agreed
to send letters to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and
U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite asking for their
support when the grant information reaches
Washington.
The State Department of Emergency
Management cautioned the city that even
though its grant application was one of six
projects ranked for funding and the city's
project was the highest ranked, federal funding
was not a sure thing because County Emergency
Operations Center funding takes priority over
city projects. Copeland recommended the city
seek support from Nelson and Brown-Waite to
ensure the funding survives.
In an unrelated matter, commissioners gave
Fire Chief James Harris permission to apply
for a $20,000 Rural Fire Assistance Outreach
grant to buy replacement bunker gear. The
fire department's bunker gear is wearing out.
Bunker gear protects firefighters from the heat
and fire.
In a final matter, commissioners said the
city would be seeking reimbursement for a
$5,700 grant that former fire chief John Ward
obtained for the Fowlers Bluff fire department.
Chiefland spent city funds purchasing the
equipment but was never reimbursed with the
grant money.
The city plans to sit down with Fowlers
Bluff fire officials to work out a method for
Fowlers Bluff to reimburse the city for the
$5,700 of city funds spent on the Fowlers Bluff
fire equipment. Ward applied for the grant
without the city's knowledge, Copeland said.


Loss, from Page 1A
They based the forecast on historical information, or the
number of students enrolled in the past.
"It's just a throw in the dark," Clemons said. "It's difficult to
anticipate because of the large swings in the population."
The state awards the district's appropriations in May based on
the forecast and the district also builds its budget for the upcoming
school year.
If the count in October is too high, the state begins to adjust the
district's funding. If the February count continues to be too high,
-the funding is cut again because the budget cycle ends in June.
Clemons said the district will adjust to the $852,000 that will
come out of the budget by the inaccurate forecast by drawing
down the reserves and adjusting the capital funds. In other words:
cutting down expenses.
And if the students aren't there to fill the classrooms, not as
many teaching units are needed, so the staff levels will need to be
adjusted as well, he said.
Clemons said at about 25 students per classroom, the loss of
about 100 FTE equals four teachers. He said there is no question
the staff level will have to be reduced because 80 percent of the
state revenue goes directly into salary.
"The only effective way to reduce cost is to reduce staff," he
said. However, he said the school board is always cognizant of
what it would do to students to readjust classrooms in the middle
of the school year.
Right now there are no immediate plans to release anyone, he
said, and he hopes the staff levels will even out at the end of the
year by attrition, or employees leaving on their own.
Hastings said the staff levels will be looked at closer in the
summer, but no staff changes will be made during this school
year.
Clemons said the union's proposals to give employees raises
and to increase benefits do not help the budget problem.
"The tension is they want us to give employee raises and
benefits. I totally get that," he said. "At the same time, you need
to maintain reserves so you can support people and preserve jobs.
We do all we can to protect people and keep them employed."
The state requirement that districts maintain a 3 percent
reserved fund balance also puts a strain on the budget.
Hastings said he just hopes the economy starts turning around
because next year's forecast of -70 FTE has already been sent to
the state.
When local projects, like the hospital, Tarmac and the power
plant, get off the ground, they will bring in more revenue, more
jobs and more students to the area, Hastings said.

Williston arrests


Police chase exceeds 90 mph


A police chase through Williston
reached speeds of 90-100 mph
and ended in a fiery crash past the
intersection of North/South Main
Street and East/West Noble Avenue.
Williston police arrested Vincent
Donnell Peterson, 49, of 403 N.E.
11h St., #4, Williston, on March 6
after his girlfriend called police and
said Peterson forcibly pulled her out
of her car, threw her to the ground,
kicked her in the knee, got into the
vehicle and drove off toward east
Williston.
Williston police caught up with
the vehicle around the "Gambling
House" at N.E. 11th Street and NE
Second Avenue, but the vehicle sped
off.
Once officers were back at the
station, the victim called police again
saying Peterson had been back at the
house and was leaving again with
the vehicle.
While responding to the call,
the vehicle matching the victim's
description was observed heading
toward Raleigh. The tag matched


the tag of the stolen vehicle, but the
driver sped throughthe neighborhood
behind the Raleigh General Store
and turned onto US 41 headed back
into the city limits of Williston.
Williston police followed the
car, reaching speeds of 90-100 mph
with lights and sirens activated. The
vehicle approached the intersection
of North Main Street and N.W.
Seventh Blvd. and made its way
through traffic, causing one vehicle
to enter the opposing, lane.
According to the report, the
vehicle again reached speeds of
90-100 mph and approached the
intersection of North/South Main
Street and East/West Noble Avenue.
It did not slow down as it traveled
through the intersection and the
driver lost control about 10 feet
south of the intersection and crashed
into a wooded area in the 100 block
of South Main Street.
The driver, later identified as
Peterson, exited the vehicle and
began to run away from the crash
when he tripped over a mound of


dirt.
The Williston police officer in
pursuit drove into the grassy area
next to the wreck and also hit the
mound of dirt and drove over the top
of Peterson.
Peterson was sitting up directly
behind the mound of dirt and had a
small amount of blood coming from
a cut on his right ear. The suspect

Chiefland Fire's


friendly reminder
Chiefland Fire Rescue would like to remind
everyone to change your clock and change your
battery in your smoke alarm as daylight savings
time begins March 14. A properly installed and
maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your
home that can alert you and your family to a
fire 24 hours a day, seen days a week. Whether
you're awake or asleep, a workmg smoke alarm
is constantly on. alert, scanning the air for fire and
smoke.
According to the National Fire Protection
Association, between 2003-2006, more than 66
percent of home fire deaths occurred in homes
without a working smoke alarm. A working

Williston High School ROTC program advances to nationals


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

While all of Williston focused on the
varsity basketball team advancing to
the state final four, the Williston High
School Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps was still basking in their glory
from placing in the state, regional and
national competitions.
At the March 2 School Board of
Levy County meeting, Senior Army
Instructor for the Williston JROTC
and Superintendent Robert Hastings
presented members of the program
with certificates for their achievement.
The shooting team, which is
comprised of Matthew Converse,
Alexandria Mohs, Savannah Rios,
Reece Griffis and Tabitha Crosby,
placed third out of 422 teams in the state
competition in December. In January,
the team advanced to the regional
competition, made up of state winners
from Missouri, Alabama, Florida,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, Puerto
Rico and the Virgin Islands. The team
placed fifth in the region and advanced
the U.S. Army National shooting team
competition that took place Feb. 19
and 20, where they placed 13th.
The six drill teams also qualified for
state competition, which will be held
April 17, and the female color guard


was accepted to the nationals that will
be held May 2.
Douyard said last year the JROTC
group placed first overall in the state.
Douyard, who after 26 years retired
from the Army, started the JROTC
program at Williston five years ago.
The program's goal is to motivate
young people to become better people,
he said. This happens by encouraging
students to be active members of their
community and teaching them how
to voice their opinions in a positive
manner to make change.
They also learn history and life
skills such as first aid and leadership.
Douyard said most sports and
organizations require a 2.0 grade point
average, but he requires at least a 2.5
to participate in the shooting team for
JROTC.
"These kids are not just competing,"
he said. "They're academic athletes. If
they want to be competitive, in colleges
and universities they want scholar
athletes; not just athletes."
He said he has a great group of
students who have won 25 national
awards this year for everything from
community service and spirit to
leadership.
"It's a small town but the effort
these kids put out is so unreal. They're

Driver's license applicants must meet federal


identification rules at Tax Collector's office


Story and photo by'Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The 9/11 terror attacks of 2001 continue to impact
Americans, even in rural Levy County.
Drivers are discovering this when they apply for
drivers licenses at the Levy County Tax Collector's
office.
Under new federal Homeland Security rules,
people applying for drivers' licenses must bring
certified identification to prove who they are before
they can be issued a new license, according to Tax
Collector Linda Fugate.
Fugate appeared before the Williston Rotary Club
last week to explain the new requirements and its
impact bn people applying for drivers licenses. She
said it is slowing the process of obtaining a license
in'cases where people fail to show up with certified
identification and other required documents.
"I have had a lot of people say, 'But you've known
me all my life," Fugate said. "I tell them everything
is scanned by the Department of Homeland Security
and if they don't like it you don't get your license."
The documents are first scanned at Fugate's office,
but the copies go straight to Homeland Security by
way of the internet.
Fugate said her office typically handled 40-45
new drivers' license applications daily before the
new requirements took effect. Her office was able to
process only 14 applications on the day before she
spoke to the Rotary.


Tax Collector Linda Fugate speaks to Willis-
ton Rotary Club members during the March
2 meeting.
"Why is it necessary? When you think about 9/11
terror attacks, the biggest reason was that a majority
of the terrorists had valid Florida drivers' licenses,"

Williston Council postpones decision on solar energy


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston's proposal to light the city with solar
energy is temporarily on hold.
The City Council learned last week that two
members of a committee assigned to review
engineerng proposals had not completed their work.
City officials plan to hire an engineering firm
that specializes in building large solar power plants
to design and construct such a plant at Williston
Municipal Airport..
Solar panels would be installed on all the roofs of
all airport buildings and on the roofs of 40 acres of
shade hangars used to house airplanes. Shade hangars
have a roof but no walls. The hangars could serve a
dual purpose, as hangers and solar energy collectors.
The engineering firm would be required to write
grants to fund the project and the company would be
paid only if grants were awarded. The city would sell
the electricity generated by the solar power plant to
Progress Energy during the day and buy back power
at night.
Collins predicted the city would be able to reduce
the average residential and business power bill by
about 30 percent.
Councilman Marc Nussel and city Project Manager
Mark Schiefer are the two committee members who
were not finished with their review of engineering
proposals. Nussel said he was investigating one of
the engineering proposals but had not finished his
review. Schiefer has also not completed his review.
He was not present for the council meeting.
Council President Debra Jones and City Manager
Marcus Collins are the two remaining committee
members. Both have reviewed the engineering
proposals. They are waiting for Schiefer and Nussel


to complete their work.
"It would be a huge economic incentive to bring
businesses here with lower electric bills," Collins said.
Councilman Michael Shoemaker wasn't enthused
about the project. He said he can't see investing any
city money in solar energy when the city has had
to lay off people, but he won't object as long as the
federal government foots the bill.
"As long as the federal government is paying, I
have no objection," he said.
"We're trying to get the federal government to pay
for everything," Collins responded.
Councilman Brooks Holloway said the thing that.
scares him most is the fuel adjustment charges on his
power bill. He said the city "can knock that in the
head" if the city was powered by solar energy.
On a related subject, Nussel is continuing to work
on a contract with Progress Energy that would keep
the city's electric power rates at the existing level
for the next two years. He hopes to get a three year
contract.
The city operates its own electrical system
by purchasing power from Progress Energy and
redistributing the power through its own power lines.
Nussel has been watching several cities renegotiate
similar contracts for purchasing electrical Power
from Progress Energy. At the time of the meeting, he
said Progress Energy had agreed to keep the current
rates for two years.
Nussel also suggested the city purchase the
substation that connects the city to Progress Energy.
He said it would result in additional savings.
In other business:
Council members gave final approval to an
ordinance banning skateboarding on any city street,
sidewalk or parking lot unless that facility contains a
sign allowing skateboarding. The city will be posting


signs prohibiting skateboarding on any public
property including sidewalks.
Skateboarding is prohibited on any roadway,
as well as any community facility, commercial or
business zoned property unless the owner posts city-
approved signs allowing skateboarding.
Skateboarding is prohibited on any public or
private property where signs are posted making
skateboarding illegal. It is also prohibited on any
sidewalks in any portion of the city adjacent to a
community facility, business or commercially zoned
development.
The council made skateboarding legal on public
sidewalks lying adjacent to residential developments
within the city, unless signs are posted prohibiting
skateboarding.
The ordinance also says skateboarders shall yield
the right-of-way to bicycles and to all other non-
skateboard pedestrian traffic, and no constructed
ramps, obstacles, turns, curves, rails or other
skateboarding obstructions or structures will be
permitted on any sidewalk, path, bike lane or roadway
in the city.
M Council members voted 4-1 on the first
reading of an ordinance that rezones three blocks
of residential property between NE 2nd Ave. and
NE 1st Ave. to residential business, allowing small
businesses to set up in homes. The area is currently
zoned residential, single-family and multi-family. The
city's Community Redevelopment Agency said the
neighborhood is in transition to a mix of residential
and business development and the change of zoning
would smooth the transition. Three residents living in
the area spoke against the change, saying they .want
their neighborhood to remain purely residential. The
council will discuss the ordinance one more time
before considering final adoption.


Levy County students begin FCAT testing


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Levy County students began the
reading, mathematics and science
portions ofthe Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) this week.
On Tuesday, third- through 10th-
graders began the state-mandated
testing that will wrap up next Friday.
Previously, school grades were
based on the FCAT. This year, grades
will still be based on the FCAT and
also several other factors, including
the number of advanced placement
and dual enrollment students for high
schools.
Seven Levy County schools
earned an A for the 2008-2009 school
year: Bronson Elementary School,
Cedar Key High School, Chiefland
Elementary School, Chiefland Middle
School, Nature Coast Middle School,
Williston Elementary School, and
Williston Middle School.
Bronson Middle/High School and
Yankeetown School both earned Bs.
While no schools earned a D, CHS
received a C and WHS received an F.
Chiefland Elementary School
third-' and fourth-graders began with


the reading portion of the test on
Tuesday and Wednesday and finished
with math on Thursday. The fifth-
graders started with math on Tuesday
and Wednesday and finished with
reading on Thursday. Fifth-graders
will also test in science next week.
Last year the school earned an
A grade and Chiefland Elementary
Principal Patrice McCully said they
hope to hold onto to that A this school
year.
She said the entire school has
pulled out all the stops to prepare and
motivate the third-, fourth- and fifth-
graders for the testing.
All the students and teachers in
kindergarten through second grade as
well as the custodians and office staff
have worked together to make posters
and banners to wish grades three, four
and five good luck, she said.
"The hopes for Chiefland
Elementary School, obviously, are
that the students are able to perform
their very best whatever their very
best may be," she said.
In order to be promoted to the
fourth grader, third-grade students
must earn an FCAT score of at least 2
on a scale of 5.


Bronson Middle/High School
Principal Valerie Boughanem said
the first day of testing went very
smoothly.
Sixth- through 10'-graders tested
in reading on Tuesday ,and math on
Wednesday. Eighth- and 11 h"-graders
will test in science today with make-
ups and retakes for juniors and seniors
next week.
"In speaking with the teachers, they
said the students were very engaged
and working very hard. We're looking
forward to good results," she said.
Last year, the school was one
point away from earning an A, and
Boughanem said this year they hope
to reach that extra point.
"Missing it by one point was a little
disheartening last year," she said.
To motivate the students, last week
students were given pledge cards that
read; "Pledge for success on FCAT.
A promise you make for yourself."
The cards also had FCAT tips on the
back.
The school also held contests that
earned students reward coupons to
be redeemed for relaxation time after
testing.


Collision involves


Levy school bus

A Levy County school bus was
involved in an accident last week that
left the driver of the other vehicle in
serious condition.
According to the Florida Highway
Patrol traffic-crash release, Nicole
Davis, 18, from Cedar Key was on a
private driveway Friday at 9:30 a.m.
attempting to enter CR-341, 7 miles
south of Chiefland. She was driving a
2006 Chevy four-door sedan when she
pulled ahead of the school bus that was
traveling southbound on CR-341.
Gerald Miller of Chiefland was the
driver of the bus and swerved to the left
in order to avoid Davis's car. The front
of the bus hit the left side of the car in the
northbound lane. Both vehicles stopped
on the east shoulder still engaged.
Davis was trapped inside her car for
a short period until emergency personnel
responded and extricated her. She was
transported to Shands at the University
of Florida. Miller did not sustain any
injuries and there were no students on
the bus at the time of the accident.


Fugate said.
Nineteen terrorists hijacked American commercial
airliners on Sept. 11, 2001 and flew the airplanes into
the World Trade Center towers in New York and the
Pentagon in Washington D.C.
The new Homeland Security document
requirements for Floridians are:

be obtained at the health department.
Florida is the first to implement the new
requirements.

Meeks, from Page 1A


didn't smoke or drink. She said she didn't choose him
for that reason, but she was quite fortunate to marry a
man of his character and clean living habits. They had
two children, Jimmy and Barbara, who passed away
from cancer.
"I married a man who didn't smoke or drink. That
was just luck because my brothers smoked and drank,"
she said. "I married a good man. I lived in a good
neighborhood; everyone was brothers and sisters."
She said if a child went missing, there wasn't much
worry. They were sure to be with a trusted neighbor
somewhere in the community.
The Meeks home originally belonged to her
husband's mother. It has been redone more than once,
but its historic value to the Meeks family cannot be
estimated. Jimmy Meeks said they cut through four
layers of floors once when they were adding to the
home.
She said Williston is named for a Dr. Willis who
bought a ranch outside Williston. She said a group of
townspeople decided to call it Williston. The city is
named for J.M. Willis.
Mrs. Meeks graduated from high school in
Williston in 1928. She and her sister Thelma went to
Bronson and passed a teacher's examination, which
allowed them to teach in public schools.
Her first assignment was Double Sink School,
located in the area of Pine Grove Baptist Church
between Trenton and Bronson. Thelma went to teach
at Port Inglis. An uncle living on the island would
pick up Thelma in his boat to take her to the island
school.
Mrs. Meeks taught at Double Sink School for two
years. She boarded with Amon and Nettie Ward. It
was a rule in those days that teachers had to live in the
community where they worked.
"I had a nice place to stay at, with the Wards," she
said. "He was a cattleman. He raised cattle and took
them to market and sold them."
Those were the open range days. Cattle were not
fenced. Farmers would fence their drops, but not the
grazing land for cattle. The cattle ran wild.
Mrs. Meeks walked a mile from her home at the
Wards to Double Sink School. The school had a good
wood heater, but the school system didn't provide
wood. She instructed each student to scour the wooded
areas as they walked to school for wood that could be
,used to heat the school.
The school was painted. When the building needed
repainting, the community would show up. The men
would paint the building. The woman would bring
chicken or fish to feed the work crew.
"It was a nice school," she said.
She left Double Sink to teach at Ellzey, the
unincorporated area where she lives today. The first
year she taught grades 1-6. The next year the school
trustees decided to cut back to one teacher. They gave
Mrs. Meeks the entire school. She told them she was
overloaded.
"I told them I couldn't do justice to the children
and I couldn't do justice to myself," she said.
At Ellzey School the drinking water was so bad
that the school caught rain water in a cistern and used
the rain water for drinking water. Mrs. Meeks said it
was good to drink. The water was kept in a barrel.
"It was wonderful," she said.
From Ellzey she took a job as teacher in Gulf
Hammock at Old Camp Misery. The logging camp
could-be reached only by railroad. The Patterson
McInnis lumber company would provide families
With their homes. She would go in and out of the
logging camp on a flat car, a motorized rail car, or on
a locomotive.
After Camp Misery she ran the Ellzey Post Office
until she got a job teaching in Cedar Key for a year.
The only way into Cedar Key was by car. The roads


Marie Meeks is shown in an earlier photo with her entire family on the lawn of the family
home in EIIzey. She was the oldest of 11 sisters raised in Williston. Three of the girls are sur-
viving, including Mrs. Meeks. The other surviving sisters are Sarah, 91 and Alice Mae, 86.

were sandy and difficult for travel.
From Cedar Key, Mrs. Meeks began teaching in
Otter Creek, site of the Levy Association of Retarded
Citizens today. She taught in Otter Creek for 15 years.
Her next stop was Chiefland Elementary School.
The high school and elementary school were close
together. She taught for 15 years in Chiefland.
During her last year at Chiefland, her daughter
Barbara came down with cancer. Mrs. Meeks and her
husband went down to stay with her. They were in
Orlando for about seven weeks before Barbara passed
away. Her husband, J.R. Meeks, had never been away
from home that long.
Mrs. Meeks suffered a slight heart attack during her
stay in Orlando. She decided to retire. Her principal,
David Stone, tried to talk her into staying, but she
decided it was time to retire.
While she was still teaching, Mrs. Meeks went to


school evenings in Gainesville to earn her Master's.
She went to Florida State University with other
teachers during the summer months to work on her
degree. FSU was the closest female school.
Marguerite Renfroe, Amelia Erwin and Carrabelle
Smith, fellow teachers, also worked on their masters
at the same time.
"I was determined if I was going to do it, I would
do' it," Mrs. Meeks said.
Mrs. Meeks has four grandchildren, eight great-
grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
She is loved and respected by her own family.'
"She has spoiled us and spoiled us," said Vicki
Henry.
She said Mrs. Meeks came from a time when
women were expected to wear dresses. She believes
her grandmother has worn pants only twice.
"She wears dresses every day," Henry said.

Hollywood


irks me

By Rick Burnham
Editor


irate email screaming about our
Conservative approach to the
news. The message will usually
include something along the lines of "I hate
Conservatism," or "You're not balanced," or
"I hate you.'"
My response is almost always the same
thing: "Back away from the newspaper. Put
it down and just walk away. Life is too short
to get worked up that much over anything.
If you don't like what we say in the Levy
County Journal, then find something else to
read that better suits your political leanings."
Some of them, I can only assume, follow
my advice. I never hear from them again.
Others, though, will write me another nasty
note a month or two down the line. They just
never learn.
Apparently, I don't either.
I was watching the Academy Awards on
television the other night when it occurred
to me that I have become an enabler an
enabler of just about everything I detest in
the world. Those things, for the most part,
are all things liberal, most notably Socialism
and Communism. And there are few places
on the planet more liberal than Hollywood.
Bear with me I am a north Florida
cracker and it takes me a little longer
to comprehend things than the average
Hollywood socialite. So I have been sitting
there watching movie after movie and TV
show after TV show over the past several
years all my life, really not really
understanding that my participation helps
fund many of the things that are so blatantly
wrong.
For years my favorite actor was Kevin
Spacey. Regardless of which side of the aisle
you reside on, you have to admit that the guy
has some remarkable skills as a thespian.
Heck, he has won two Oscars, so you have
to figure that he knows what he is doing. So
for years, I would try and catch his movies
when they came out, and from time to time, I
would rent one or two of his old ones when I
got the chance.
Then he'd take my 10 cents or whatever
portion of the money I spent that made
it to him and head down to Venezuela
to chitchat with Socialist President Hugo
Chavez. Or he would make a movie that
belittled Florida's recount of its votes in the
2000 president election.
I simply cannot, in good conscience, rent
those movies any more, nor can I go off and
spend $10 a ticket to see the latest Kevin
Spacey movie. With the country barreling
toward outright Socialism, it just doesn't
make good sense to support an entertainer
who would like to see Socialism succeed
here.
Nor can I, in good conscience, pick
up anything with Sean Penn's name on it.
Again, great actor political moron. Thinks
Chavez and Fidel Castro are great human
beings.
I will certainly not support Alec Baldwin,
whose acting career was revived by with
a part on the NBC sitcom "30 Rock," has
long been known for leaning far to the left
on political issues. It actually makes perfect
sense that he would find employment on
NBC, a network that has given up any
pretense of political objectivity.
In the 2008 presidential elections,
NBC essentially became a public relations
firm for the Obama candidacy. And, with
liberal buffoons Keith Olberman and
Chris Matthews leading the way, they
have continued to practice that stance with
passion.
So when I am channel surfing and looking
for something to watch, I jump right past
NBC and MSNBC, and any other channel
with connections to the network. I do not
want to be responsible for a ratings increase
even the miniscule percentage of a ratings
increase that would result from the network
appearing on my tube for a second.
If they want to turn the network into
government controlled media, then fine. But
they won't do it on my dime.
Looking ahead and realizing that this
whole political situation is almost certainly
going to one day get ugly, realizing that
one day it will surely become a matter of us
versus them, 1 want to ensure my feet are
planted firmly on the side of freedom, not


Socialism. And if that means picking up the
remote and turning off Hollywood, then so
be it.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

W illiston High School lost last week in the
boys' state semi-final basketball game
to Fort Lauderdale's Pine Crest School,
a two-time defending state champion
in Class 3A and a private school. It wasn't a complete
surprise. I was hoping for a Red Devil win. They had a
very talented team.
But private schools often do well in the state
playoffs. It's a fact of life in Florida high school athletic
competition. It gives rise to the allegation that private
schools recruit athletes, which is supposed to be illegal
in Florida. Private schools deny the allegation.
Let me outline what I mean.
Jacksonville Bolles won the 2009 State Class 2A
.football championship by defeating private school
Tampa Catholic. It was the second consecutive state
football championship for Bolles. The school was also
winner of the 2009 State 3A baseball championship,
defeating defending state champion American Heritage
School, a private school from Plantation, Fla.
A Jacksonville.com story said Jacksonville Bolles
has tied St. Thomas Aquinas, a private school, for the
most football playoff game wins at 680. If that wasn't
spectacular enough, Jacksonville Bolles baseball teams
have won the state championship five times, according
to the website. That's impressive by anyone's standards.
I am quite certain all the schools mentioned above,
as well as the athletes who represented them, are proud
of their impressive records. But why do private schools
like Bolles excel in athletics and win so many state
championships?
Is it recruiting? I've talked to many public school
coaches and they tell me that recruiting has to be taking
place with private schools. They say the difference
between a state championship team and one that gets
beat early in the playoffs, or even late in the playoffs, is
often athletic talent. It takes great athletic talent to win a
state championship in any sport at any level.
Chiefland has been fortunate to win two football state
championships, but the state titles were 36 years apart.
It just so happened in each of those years that the stars
were aligned just right and the school had enough top-
flight athletes to win the state title. None of the athletes
on those teams were injured so badly during the state
title runs that they were unable to play.
But many private schools don't to have to wait 36
years between state championships, as Jacksonville
Bolles can attest, as well as Pine Crest. They don't
rebuild their teams every year. They just reload. They
always seem to have great athletes.
I wrote to Jacksonville Boles around Thanksgiving
last year and asked if the school offers athletic
scholarships, if it recruits athletes, and whether it is
affiliated with any church. Jan Olsen responded in an
e-mail for the school. She said the school doesn't recruit
or offer athletic scholarships nor is it affiliated with any
church. She said 100 percent of the school's graduates
go on to college.
"Students come to Bolles from all over the world and
for all types of reasons whether they are training to be
an Olympic swimmer or to be in a musical production
or to receive a quality education the reasons are
endless. Our students are hard workers and even if
they are involved in sports, academics come first. In
fact you cannot play a sport if your grades do not meet
our school standards, which in some ways even exceed
those of the Florida High School Athletic Association.
Our student body regularly approaches or exceeds
90 percent participation in one or more sports. While
we are fortunate that our reputation for a winning
tradition has continued and many of our athletes
go on to play in college, it is a fact that many of our
students actually begin Bolles in lower school and stay
with us through their senior year The School is non-
denominational, which is one of the factors that help to
make it such a unique environment. Our students live
and work together every day from all types of religions,


backgrounds and customs. We have approximately 100
boarding students from eight states and twenty-two
from different countries creating a diverse setting and a
unique atmosphere for learning."
She added that the school's president sat on a
governor-appointed task force to look into high school
athletic recruiting two or three years ago.
The team that Jacksonville Bolles beat last year for
the state 2A baseball championship, American Heritage,
is also a private school that does well academically,
according to its website. American Heritage was number
one, three years in a row, in state math competition and
won the state mock trial competition in 2008-09, the
same year it won second and fourth place in the Intel
Science Fair and was number one in Broward County
science fair competitions.
Like Bolles, American Heritage obviously has a great
academic program that no doubt is attractive to students
and student athletes. Just how those athletes pay the
private tuition is a question I can't answer. Most of the
schools offer financial aid, but they say the aid is not
given to students because they have great athletic talent.
I really don't think the FHSAA has looked closely
enough at this issue. I think it deserves attention. How
can these great athletes afford to play at privaterschools?
Who pays the way and how was the money offered? It's
an interesting question.
At the very least, I think the state should create a
separate playoff system for private schools. Public
schools, which can't recruit without consequences,
would compete with peer schools that operate under the,
same rules and with a similar financial structure. Private
schools would compete only with private schools in the
parallel state playoff system.
I am not accusing any of the private schools
mentioned in this column of recruiting athletes or
offering athletic scholarships. The allegations would
be empty and meaningless because I have no proof
recruiting is taking place. But I think it is legitimate
to raise questions about the state high school playoff
system that pits private schools against public schools.
Is the system fair? Does it need to be changed?
The question that should be answered is whether
the playing field is perfectly level. Was the Williston
team competing on a level playing field with the private
school that defeated the Red Devils in a state semi-final
game? I'm not making excuses for Williston or accusing
Pine Crest of wrongdoing. But I think the black cloud
that has hung over the state playoffs for many years
because of the public vs. private school controversy
will remain as long as the Florida High School Athletic
Association acts as though the playing field is level and
public and private schools are operating their athletic
programs in exactly the same way and with the same
scrutiny..
I doubt we will ever see the FHSAA declare that
private schools are openly recruiting great athletes or
using subtle means of recruiting. I talked to one former
FHSAA official who said it's very difficult to prove
recruiting. I'm certain he is right. I am also certain the
FHSAA doesn't want to make unfounded allegations
that hurt young athletes and anger their parents. Making
unfounded allegations isn't fair either.
But how difficult would it be to establish two
separate playoff systems for public and private high
schools? I think two playoff systems would at-the very
least establish a more level playing field and eliminate
the questions that linger about the fairness of the high
school sports playoffs in Florida.
Either that or the FHSAA should launch an objective
study focusing on how private school athletes arrive at
these great athletic programs. The study could examine
how the athletes were contacted or if they approached
the schools, if they received financial assistance, and
in what form, or if other inducements were offered.
An objective study would induce less hostility and
defensiveness than a formal investigation. If the study
were done scientifically by people who wanted credible
results, it would provide good information about a very
difficult and touchy subject.

Chiefland looks to past to build football future


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Jim O'Neal, who coached Chiefland to a FHSAA
Class 2A state football championship in 1997 has
been hired as the new head football coach for CHS,
Principal Bill Tovine announced last week at a
Quarterback Club meeting.
O'Neal will take over in late March after the FCAT
exams and will teach physical education at CHS. His
hiring was applauded b.y the quarterback club. One
of O'Neal's former assistant coaches praised his
abilities.
"His love of the game, his knowledge of the game
and his love for the kids it will be an awesome
package," said Assistant Coach Randy Fuller.
Fuller served as O'Neal's line coach during the
1997 championship year and has agreed to return as


one of O'Neal's assistant coaches. Kyle Parnell and
Brian Gore, also an assistant under O'Neal during the
championship run, will coach for O'Neal.
"If we are serious about building a program, this
is the foundation," Tovine said.
O'Neal served as CHS head coach from 1993-97.
He left after the championship year and went to Port
St. Lucie Centennial High School. He had applied for
the Chiefland job in the years since he left CHS, but
wasn't hired, Tovine said.
The 1997 championship team was talented.
Jarret Johnson, who played defensive end and
offensive tackle for O'Neal, went on to play for the
University of Alabama. He has played for many years
in the professional ranks with the Baltimore Ravens,
Halfback Shane Ingram scored six touchdowns in
the championship game at Florida Field. Corey Tyson
was the team's sure-handed wide receiver. Robbie


Studstill was a big offensive lineman who teamed up
with Johnson on sweeps. Matt Roach was the team's
unflappable quarterback who threw with accuracy.
Ryan Tyson, Corey's younger brother, anchored the
offensive line at the center position.
Tovine said one of the requirements for the new
coach is to be able to walk the hallways and the
cafeteria at CHS to recruit all the athletes who should
be playing. One of O'Neal's talents was motivating
players. Tovine felt O'Neal was a good fit in that
respect.
"He took a team with a 1-19 record and went to
the state and won a championship," Tovine said.
Sixty people applied for the head coaching
position. Nine were interviewed. The process was
long. The underlying goal was "do what's right, do

Pitching, defense leads


Chiefland over St. Francis


Story and photos
by Rick Burnham
Editor

Chiefland Head Baseball
Coach Kyle Parnell likes
having strong-armed Clenton
Wasson in center field. The
coach says that Wasson, a rangy
senior, gives the Indians a big
advantage at a key position,
helping keep opposing teams
off base and, ideally, off the
scoreboard as well.
The plan worked to
perfection Friday against St.
Francis.
Wasson threw out a runner
at home plate at a key moment
of the game, helping preserve


an early Chiefland lead, and
the Indians went on to beat the
Wolves 11-3 in a District 5-2A
matchup.
Wasson also collected four
hits in the game two singles,
a double and a triple.
Afterward, Parnell spoke
of his center-fielder's defense
and how it paved the way for
Chiefland's sixth win of the
season.
"It was anybody's ballgame
at that point. To get the guy out
at the plate and save a run kind
of killed their momentum,"
Parnell said. "We like him there.
He has the good range, he reads

It was not the storybook ending
many hoped for in Williston. But for
the briefest of moments, it appeared as
though it might be.
Fort Lauderdale Pine Crest beat the
Red Devils 77-63 in the semifinals of the
FHSAA Class 3A final four in Lakeland
March 3. The two-time defending
champion Panthers raced to a 20-point
halftime lead and coasted from there
behind a pair of towering front court
players and the player many consider
to be the top point guard in the nation
- Brandon Knight. ,
But in a span of two minutes midway
through the first quarter, Williston
signaled to the Lakeland crowd and



Inrliinc cti in


to a statewide radio audience that they
were just as talented and every bit as
motivated as the celebrated team from
the south.
Down 11-2 with four minutes left in
the first, the Red Devils rattled off nine
straight points to tie the game. Guard
James Monroe began the run with a
3-point shot from the top of the key.
Less than a minute later, senior Kelcey
Coleman" hit a five-foot jumper in
traffic. Deonte Welch followed that with
a layup after a pass from Deterion Ross.
And Tony James converted a layup with
less than two minutes left in the quarter.
The two teams stood tied at 11 with 1:40
left in the first quarter.
Unfortunately, Williston's success

Full of confidence and sporting a bit of a
swagger, the Bronson Lady Eagles softball
team waltzed into Gainesville March 4 and
claimed a district road win over St. Francis.
The 12-3 win was never really in question
for Bronson they scored in every inning but
the last, including three runs in the top of the
first. April Benka pitched the entire game for
the Lady Eagles, scattering eight hits while
striking out four.
But the real story of the game was the
Bronson offense, which kicked into gear with
three hits in the top of the first. Leadoff hitter
Kelsey Russell got one of those to begin the
inning, and quickly advanced to second on
a groundout. Russell scored on a base hit bk
Benka, who advanced to second on a wild


pitch and later scored on another.
Danie Williams scored the third run after
coaxing a walk out of St. Francis pitcher
Emily Ross. She advanced to third on a hit
by Crystal Short and eventually scored on a
wild pitch.
St. Francis got a run back in their half of
the first. Leadoff hitter Keane Brazda reached
base on an infield hit and came around to score
on a three-base throwing error by Bronson.
Benka settled down, however, getting a
couple of groundouts and a strikeout to end
the inning.
Bronson extended its lead to 4-1 in the
top of the second. Patience Williams reached
base on a walk and made her way around the
bases on wild pitches.

competitive


in two games

The mighty Sharks' baseball
team was defeated twice last week.
Tuesday's home game was against
Seven Rivers and the Sharks played
a fierce game. Outstanding players
in the game were Ryan Alford and
Aaron Esposito each with a home run
and two RBIs. The final score was 18-
6, Sharks with the ross. Starting short
stop, Bradley Register, had this to say
about the game: "We tried our best, I
mean we had a few errors that could
have been avoided. We need to stay
strong and work on our fielding and
we'll be good to go."
Friday's game at St. Johns was
an intense game. Players that made
a huge difference in this game were
Ryan Alford with 2 singles, Bradley
Register with a run, single, and an
RBI, and Justin Esposito with two
RBIs and two runs. Justin Esposito
commented after the game, "We tried
hard but I think we lost focus in about
the third inning." The Sharks took
the loss 25-8. -- Courtesy of Cedar
Key School


walking her. Either way, I have my leadoffand my best base
runner on base. She is real good about picking up when she
can steal and when she can't, and we are going to capitalize
on it."
Taylore lined a double to lead off the bottom of the first
inning, and advanced to third when Amie Biehl produced an
infield hit. Amber Richardson then drove both runners home
with an opposite-field triple to the wall in right field. Christen
Trail's fly ball to short left scored Richardson, and Chiefland
(7-1) led 3-0 after one inning.
Richardson proved a force on the mound, striking out a
pair of first-inning batters and another in the second.
Dixie County (6-2) struck for one run in the third inning,
and had an opportunity for more. Megan Philman lined a
one-out hit to left center field and advanced to third when
Anna Patterson reached second on an infield error. Charla
Fowler then blooped a hit into left field to score Philman, but
the throw from Chiefland left-fielder Janessa Barrios nailed
Patterson at the plate. Fuller, Chiefland's catcher, then alertly
threw to third to nail Fowler with the third out of the inning.


Chiefland poured it on in the third inning, sending nine
batters to the plate while collecting five hits and four runs.
Fuller led off with a single and advanced to second on a hit
by Biehl. Richardson scored both runners with a double, and
came around to score the third run of the inning on a hit by
Kaylee Ecker. Christen Trail also got a hit in the inning and
scored on a single by Kaylin Hastings.
Chiefland would add a run in the fourth inning and two
more in the sixth to win going away. Richardson and Fuller
were behind the fourth-inning score, while Fuller and Biehl
produced the sixth inning tallies.
Afterward, Ginger Fuller said her team still has some finer
points to work on, but has shown great chemistry throughout
the first part of the 2010 schedule.
"We have a lot of base running to work on, and we had
some breakdowns on defense where somebody forgot to
cover second," she said. "But the chemistry of this team is
working they are clicking. They understand their position
on this team and that everybody is a piece to the puzzle. It is
all about the team, and they are buying into it."


what's prudent," Tovine said. He said
every applicant was told Chiefland is
-a faith-based community. The team
prays before and after games.
Tovine said all the applicants were
told they would be rebuilding the CHS
football program from the middle
school up to the high school. Tovine
felt O'Neal came with the best overall
talents to meet the school's needs.
"He is the best for all the way
around," Tovine said.
Fuller said O'Neal is a man of


good character and high integrity and
excellent, leadership skills. He said
O'Neal can bring the program back.
Fuller said one essential quality
O'Neal has that he personally likes is
that O'Neal is the type of man who
will walk into the middle of a battle to
check it out before he asks his men to
do anything.
"He has the character, he has the
ability for men to follow him," Fuller
said.
Tovine said O'Neal can't .do it


alone. He said O'Neal is a key piece
of the puzzle in rebuilding the football
program, but he said the players,
community, school, assistant coaches
and the school district all play essential
roles.
Quarterback Club President
Abraham Blitch said there had been
a few other names mentioned for the
position, but it came down to who
would be best for the school and the
program. He believed O'Neal is a good
choice.


Blitch, who coached CAAA youth-
league football in Chiefland with
Fuller, said they like O'Neal's love of
the game and the kids.
"Jim O'Neal brings exceptional
skills we're excited to have for our
program, but we don't want to forget
the contributions ofA.J. Ulmer," Blitch
said. Ulmer, former head football
coach, stepped down to become dean
of students.

Melissa Nutt retired two straight on
ground balls, and Benka struck out the
third swinging.
Angela Freeman got the Bronson
half of the third inning off to a good start
with a triple down the left-field line. She
scored on a wild pitch moments later,
and the Lady Eagles led 5-1.
St. Francis came back with a run of
their own in the bottom of the inning,
Getting a one-out hit from Brazda and
a two-out single by Ross. Bronson led
5-2 after three innings.
Both teams scored in the fourth
inning. Bronson got an infield hit from
Destiny LeMay, who promptly stole
second and moved to third on a wild
pitch. She scored on a ground ball by
Russell. Cecilia Cuesta tripled for St.
Francis and scored on a base hit by
Megan Lee. Bronson led 6-3 after four.


Bronson's April Benka scores on a fifth-inning wild pitch. Benka also
pitched a complete game for the Lady Eagles.
Bronson put the game out of reach of the inning, but Bronson turned a
with a three-run fifth, highlighted by a double play on a nice play by Russell
hit and stolen base by Benka. St. Francis at catcher to end the threat. Russell's
threatened to do the same in their half quick turn was one of several defensive


highlights for the Lady Eagles in the
game, including a running catch in
center field by Williams, and an over-
the-shoulder grab in left field by Short.
Bronson head coach Kenny Thomas
credited his players for fine defense
in the game, and also for playing with
confidence.
"We played with confidence
tonight," he said. "We had been coming
into games thinking that teams were
better than us and being already beaten
when we got off the bus. We came in
expecting to win tonight because we
beat them last year. We do a lot better
when we expect to win. That gave us
the momentum to win today. We played
hard and we played good."

Bronson High School's varsity
baseball team lost 16-6 to Chiefland and
8-5 to Trenton last week, but coaches
said the team continued to improve in a
rebuilding year.
Both games were played in extremely
chilly weather conditions. Fans for
both teams were wrapped in blankets
and wearing heavy coats along the
sidelines.
The Eagles scored 11 total runs in the
two games, but fielding and throwing
errors were responsible for many of the
runs scored by their opponents.
Bronson (1-6) stayed close to Trenton
(7-1) on Friday before the Tigers scored
3 runs on 4 bunts in the fifth inning,
giving the Tigers a 6-2 lead. The bunted
runs gave Trenton enough of a lead to
keep Bronson at bay.
In the previous night's game,
Chiefland jumped out to a 7-0 lead by
the top of the third inning, with two
runs scoring off Clenton Wasson's bat.
Consistent base hitting by the Indians
was responsible for the remaining runs
to that point.
Tyler Martensen, Ben Landon and
Kelby Barber scored for Bronson in
the third inning to close the gap, but
Wasson opened the top of the fourth
by walloping a double to the center-
field fence. Wasson scored on an error,


Marquis Greene on a fly out, and Bo
Beauchamp on a bad throw.
Bronson narrowed the score to 10-6
when Quintelle Coleman reached base
through catcher interference and came
home on an A.J. Graham hit. Martensen
doubled and Kelby Barber walked.
Martensen came home on an error.
But the top of the fifth was another
big inning for Chiefland with Adam
Burton and Robbie McCabe coming
home on a hit by* Greene. Bronson
loaded the bases and walked Greene
home. Parrish Parnell scored on a hit by
Johnathan Osteen.
Burton scored in the sixth inning on a
pass ball at home and Wasson scored on
a fielder's choice.
Bronson Coach Al Cooksey said his
team just needs more field time in games
and in practices to come together as a
team, but he said the Eagles are running
the bases better, pressuring pitchers, and
positioning themselves well to steal.
"We're so much better than we were
it's not funny," he said.
Cooksey said Trenton is a well-
coached team, as is Chiefland.
He said the Tigers set up their bunts
perfectly.
But he said he believes ifBronson will
continue to improve, the team should be
playing .500 ball by the second half of
the season.
"They're' learning to play together,"
Cooksey said.

attempted to gun a Bulldog runner at
home instead of throwing to first for the
out. Bell scored its first run.
The Eagles got another bad break
when Barber tagged a runner that was
trapped between second and third for
the third out, but the official called the
runner safe.
Graham ended the inning by rifling
a throw from the outfield to Martensen
at home plate for the out that sent Bell
to the dugout, but the Bulldogs had
scored 3 runs.
The Eagles failed to score in the
bottom of the sixth, but Stevensen
struck out two of the three batters he
faced in the top of the seventh to end
the game.
Cooksey said baseball is a game
where players are best when they learn
a position and develop a rhythm. He is
still changing players around to find the
best player for the various positions.
Martensen has been the big surprise
at catcher. Cooksey said he is agile and
quick and he can gun runners at second.
He wasn't expecting Martensen to
turn out as well as he did at catcher,
but Cooksey said he's a natural at that
spot.
"He is our catcher," Cooksey said.
Barber hasn't pitched yet this
year. He played with a sprained ankle
against Bell and Chiefland. The injury
has also kept him off the mound.
When Barber is back on the mound,
Cooksey should have a rotation of
three regular pitchers and possibly
as many as five when Graham and
Quintell Coleman hit their stride.
"We've got to get better. We haven't
played anyone that we couldn't play a
second time and beat," he said.

Bagging Osceola


turkey a big deal


for state hunters

By Chairman Rodney Barreto
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission

Florida is known,
near and far, as the
"Fishing Capital of
the World" and with
good reason. But
the Sunshine State
also enjoys some
pretty good hunting
opportunities, with
arguably the best gator
and wild hog hunting
around. And Florida is
home to one game animal that has hunters from all
over the world planning trips here for the chance
at harvesting one of these fine birds.
I'm talking about the Osceola wild turkey, also
known as the Florida turkey.
What really makes the Osceola special is that
it lives on the Florida peninsula and nowhere
else in the world. That fact alone makes the bird
extremely popular with out-of-state hunters who
might be trying to complete a Wild Turkey Grand
Slam by harvesting each of the four subspecies
that occur in the United States those being the
eastern, Rio Grande, Merriam and the Osceola.
When it comes to appearance, the Osceola
looks very similar to the eastern subspecies,
found in the Panhandle, portions of North Florida
and the rest of the eastern United States and parts
of Canada. The Osceola, however, tends to be a
bit smaller and typically a darker shade with less
white barring on the flight feathers of its wings.
The most noticeable difference is the white bars
on the Osceola's primary flight feathers; they're
narrower, with an irregular, broken pattern, and
they don't extend all the way to the feather shaft,
as compared to the eastern.
When you observe a turkey in a relaxed posture,
the whitish, triangular patch that is formed when its
wings are folded across its back is less noticeable
on the Osceola than it is on the eastern, because
of the reduced white barring on the Osceola.
Another visible difference is the feathers of an
Osceola tend to show more iridescent green and
red coloring, while the eastern's feathers have
more of a bronze coloring to them.
Nowv, it can be argued that the truer Osceola
turkey is found in the southern portion of the

One hundred and twenty-five young cowboys and
cowgirls from all across the state converged on the
..Williston Horseman's Park over the weekend for the
Florida High School Rodeo Association.

rooaid n d evThe high schoolers participated in events comprised of:
bareback bronc riding, goat tying, saddle bronc riding,
calf roping, breakaway roping, steer wrestling, barrel
racing, team roping, pole bending and bull riding.
There were 11 students from Levy who participated
.V i in several events. From Williston: Dillon Bird in calf
roping; Lizy Dunn in barrel racing, pole bending and
breakaway roping; Mark Strickland in team roping:
4 and calf roping; Tevin Cameron in bull riding and
bareback bronc riding; Lacy Rice in barrel racing. -
Conrad Coovert in team roping. The participants from
Bronson: Hayden Grant in calf roping, steer wrestling
and team roping; Bobby Lott in calf roping and team
roping.
Spectators lined the stadiums Saturday night despite
S, '' ~ temperatures dropping into the 40s, although Chris
Smith, who helped coordinate the event and is a board
member of the Williston Horseman's Park committee,
said the crowd would've been larger had the three-and-
S a-half hour event been warmer.
Smith, who participated in the Florida High School
tor.....4r Rodeo Association and also raised his two sons
.,through the association, has been volunteering with
the Williston competition since 2004. He said this
year's was one of the better competitions because the
livestock was outstanding.
"The bulls and horses were outstanding. The calves
Were outstanding. It was all great and that makes or
breaks a rodeo," he said.
..There are 17 competitions throughout the state every
.. year. The top 15 from each event go on to participate in
S,.':.-, .- .'. the state finals held in Tallahassee April 29-May 2. The

state. But to help clarify for hunters where each subspecies
resides, for record-keeping purposes, the National Wild Turkey
Federation and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) recognize any wild turkey harvested
within or south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua,
Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies.
Eastern turkeys occur north and west of these counties into the
Panhandle.
And regarding turkey hunting, I am very pleased to
announce that in February at the FWC meeting inApalachicola,
Commissioners passed into law a new rule, establishing a
special, two-day youth turkey hunt the weekend prior to the
opening of spring turkey season in each hunting zone. I need
to mention, though, that this youth spring turkey hunt weekend


applies only to private property and does not come into play
until the 2011 spring turkey season.
Only those under 16 years old are allowed to harvest a
turkey while supervised by an adult, 18 years or older during
the new youth season. However, any adult supervisor who has
a hunting license and turkey permit will be allowed to "call
in" a turkey and otherwise participate in the hunt, but only the
youths will be permitted to harvest one.
So, this spring, you can expect to see some new hunters in
our turkey woods, and I'd like to personally welcome them
to our great state. After all, these visitors help stimulate our
economy, plus, there's plenty of Osceola longbeards to go
around.
Good luck and happy hunting.

on the way-to home plate for the
Indians.
he reads the ball off the bat pretty well,
and he has the big arm. He will pitch for
us too, but his natural position is center
field. He can cover a lot of ground."
Adam Burton pitched into the fifth
inning, striking out five batters, giving
up five hits and walking one. Jacob
Reidy came on with runners at first and
second with no outs in the fifth. Reidy
walked the first batter he saw to load
the bases, but got out of the inning by
striking out the next three.
By that time Chiefland was nursing
a 4-2 lead. The Indians got a run in the
first when Burton led off with an infield
hit and advanced to second on a hit by
Wasson. Marquis Greene walked to load


the bases and Burton scored on a fly ball
by Parrish Parnell.
The Indians got three more in the
top of the second, including two on a
hit by Wasson. Josh Martinez led off
the inning with a base hit and advanced
to second on a hit by Robby McCabe.
Burton lined a single to score Martinez,
and Wasson bounced a hit into center
field to score McCabe and Burton.
St. Francis got on the board in the
top of the third. Matt Janelle coaxed a
one-out walk off Burton and advanced
to second on a hit by Justin Crawl.
Brad Hite singled to load the bases,
and Janelle scored on an infield hit by
Andrew Goelk. Crawl came home with
the second run on an infield hit by Ben
Richards before Joe Klein lifted a fly
ball into center field. Wasson caught the
ball and threw a strike to Parnell at the
plate, getting Hite for the third out.
Chiefland got another run in the
fourth on an RBI double by Wasson
- and three more in the fifth, keyed by
Wasson's two-run triple.
Parnell spoke briefly after the game
about his two pitchers and how they
controlled the St. Francis lineup.
"Adam Burton got deep into the
ballgame," he said. "Reidy came in and
did well, and finished the game. So we
had two good pitching performances.
We also got our bats going and had
some timely hitting. We also had good
base running, stretching a double into a
triple."

only served to wake up a sleeping giant
- Pine Crest produced an 11-1 run to close
out the quarter. Traveon Henry and Knight
hit back-to-back 3-pointers, and Knight got
free for a jam moments later. Henry then
hit a second long-distance shot to put Pine
Crest up 22-12.
Williston never recovered.
Later, Red Devils Head Coach Steve
Faulkner said Pine Crest's counterpunch
was a key factor in the ballgame.
"It was huge," he said. "If we could have
gotten to the end of the quarter playing even,
it might have been a big difference. That
Henry kid hit the two threes, and on one of
them for sure we did not communicate well
about who was guarding him. The kid got
open in the comer and knocked it down.
Unfortunately we have some of those brain
lapses from time to time, but that is typical
of high school kids."
Williston battled toe-to-toe with Pine
Crest in the second half, winning the third
quarter 21-18 and the fourth 18-15. But
the first half deficit proved too much to
overcome. Faulkner said his team struggled
mightily to score points throughout the
game, particularly from the inside where
the Red Devils flourished throughout most
of the year. Williston shot 29.6 percent in
the game, compared to 55.8 for Pine Crest.
The combination of 6-foot-8 Matt Milk and
6-7 Tevin Westbrook proved difficult to
contend with.
"Everything we talked about doing
all week in preparation for Pine Crest we
did," Faulkner said. "The one thing we
neglected was putting the ball in the hole.
Sometimes it comes down to simply that in
basketball putting the ball in the basket.
When we shoot less than 30 percent from
the field, it is hard to win ballgames. We
just missed some easy ones. It was one of
those nights."
Despite the loss, the experience of being
one of the top four 3A teams in the state
was. a good one, said senior Isaac Floyd.
"It was very exciting just being here,"
Floyd said. "Being in Lakeland for the first
time, for everybody in Williston. Just an
exciting feeling for everyone."

Williston players will remember this special season


By Rick Burnham
Editor

The Williston Red Devils will remember this
season.the rest of their lives.
The students and faculty will look back fondly
for years to come. The fans will point to 2010 as a
special season: The coaching staff will always have
a special place in their heart for the team and its
achievements.
But the players ... they will literally never forget
the events of the past three-and-a-half months.
That's what happens when a group of young
people come together to achieve something special.
That's what happens when they work together to
overcome the odds. That's what will happen in
Williston.
Years from now one of those guys will, drive past
another on the street and offer a wave, and they will
both remember one of the greatest seasons their high
school ever had. Perhaps another will catch a game


on television and see a move that will remind him
of a Red Devil teammate, and he'll travel back in
time and relive a few of the key moments from this
season. Perhaps the Santa Fe game, where the team
stared elimination in the face and did not flinch.
Perhaps the first game, against Bronson. Perhaps the
final home game, against Rockledge.
Maybe they'll think of a single play like
Deonte Welch's acrobatic layup in the face of a
Newberry defender. Maybe. a slam dunk by Ike
Floyd or James Hunt.
Maybe it will be teammate Raheem Mentor's
five-step approach to a dunk against Wildwood,
a play that resulted in a traveling call and had the
entire bench cracking up.
Little things like that will come to mind over
the years, perhaps in the checkout line at the
supermarket. Perhaps at a class reunion. Perhaps at
a youth game where their own kids are learning how
to play the game.
They'll remember the key additions and how


they contributed to the team, how Head Coach
Steve Faulkner brought a renewed vigor and how
guard James Monroe brought a calming presence,.
along with an assassin's eye.
There will be more achievements for the 15 or
so players on this year's Williston Red Devil team.
Maybe that will include more visits to Lakeland and
the state's final four. Some will take their games to
the college level, and will no doubt do big things
there as well. Maybe, just maybe, one or two will be
playing in the NBA or NFL. Who knows maybe
one or two will bring home a championship ring
with diamonds all over it.
But as far as they get from Williston in distance
and in accomplishments both on and off the court
- they will never forget the days and weeks and
months of the 2009-2010 Williston basketball
season, when they overcame adversity and took
their team just about as far as it could go.
They will remember this season the rest of their
lives.

Players open musical comedy this weekend

Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

without the Op'ry House, Skunk Creek is just
Skunk Creek," said the new Op'ry House owner
..V.V Louisa Pampermouse, a character played by
Janice Grant in the Suwannee Valley Players'
60 "-musical performance "Phantom of the Op'ry."
3 And, likewise, Chiefland would not be the same with the
theatrical productions the Players produce four times a year. But
Players President and "Phantom" Director Susan Lastra said
the audience attendance has been cut by about half since the
economy turned.
Instead of giving up hope and shutting the doors of The Chief
Theatre or cutting back on the number of productions, the Players
have decided to keep the status quo.
Lastra said there will always be a minimum of four
performances per year.
..,"We've got that built into our Bibles," she said.
To make up for it, they are selecting scripts that are cheaper to
produce, don't require paying high royalties but still draw in the
audience.
People are cutting everything, entertainment included, she
,. said.
It's because of the struggling economy that the Players have
chosen to perform "Phantom of the Op'ry," a comedy, as their
"annual musical that opens Friday at 8 p.m. and showing Saturday
at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. followed next weekend with
the same days and times and an extra matinee Saturday.
"The goal here is to make it as silly as possible and make the
audience laugh," Lastra said.
The setting is the Op'ry House of Skunk Creek, Nevada,
which has just been sold to a new owner Louisa Pampermouse
who plans on bumping up the box office by bringing in
"Vaudeville acts instead of opera.
What Pampermouse doesn't know is that the Op'ry House is
haunted by a phantom, played by Anthony Colombo, who has
become infatuated by the new voice of Christine Swansong,
The phantom, played by Anthony Colombo, shushes his love Christine Swansong, played by Trenton High School Band Director Stacy Trenteseaux.
The phantom, played by Anthony Colombo, shushes his love Christine SThe plot more or less follows the same route as the original
played by Stacy Trenteseaux, during "The Phantom of the Op'ry" that opens Fri- "Phantom ofthe Opera." There is: mystery; murders; mayhem;
day t te Cief heare."Phantom of the Opera." There is: mystery; murders; mayhem;
day at the Chief Theatre. envy between the diva Carlotta Barracuda, played by Dannielle
Johnson, and Christine; a poisoning; a kidnapping; and more.
The difference between the original and the Players' rendition
is the cast of wacky characters, each with a crazier name than
the last. There's: Junior Hampster, a Skunk Creek deputy who
investigates the Op'ry House mystery, played by Phil Riley;
Silky Acidtongue, a local critic whose words can make or break
the box office, played by Andy Kidd; and the charming Army Lt.
Farleigh Good (pronounced "fairly") who has stolen Christine's
heart and pledges to find the masked phantom, played by
.IIi ~ Chiefland High School senior Josh McClellan.
All in all, there are 19 cast members making up the characters,
which Lastra said has been a tough act.
"It's hard to juggle 19 different schedules," she said.
On the plus side, the cast is mostly made up of adults, which'
she said is a lot easier to deal with and much different than last
: year's musical "Into the Woods" that had a cast of 23, most of
.. whom were in their teenage years or younger.
S And nine of the people participating this year are teachers:
two from Levy, three from Gilchrist and four from Alachua.
There were brought in to participate by Lastra, who is a
teacher at Oak View Middle School in Newberry, and the
Players' Vice President Janice Grant, who teaches at Trenton
l"Middle/High School.
The teachers also include: from Oak View Middle School
along with Lastra, science and math teacher, Phil Riley, world
cultures teacher Dannielle Johnson, and TV production and
S .media specialist Bobbie Stanley; Grant and Trenteseaux with
Trenton Middle/High School along of Gilchrist County Schools"
social worker Jeanine Joiner; and Chiefland Middle School
science teacher Andy Kidd and language arts teacher Bobbie
Kidd.
.... Lastra said the fact that there are so many teachers involved
Madame Barracuda, played by Bobbie Stanley, mourns the poisoning of her means that there is a great connection.
daughter, the diva Carlotta Barracuda, played by Danielle Johnson. Carlotta was "Everybody plays off of each other so well and seem to
just one of the Phantom's victims, connect," she said.
Trenteseaux is the band director at Trenton and studied voice
at Florida State University and received a bachelor's in music
education from UF in 2007. She has been involved in UF opera
". .. theater productions, studied voice in Austria, and performed with
Opera Festival di Roma in Rome, Italy.
She auditioned for the role of the happy-go-lucky, Disney
princess-esque Christine at the request of Grant, her co-worker,
to the benefit of the Players and the performance's audience. The
love song between Christine and Lt. Farleigh Good does not miss
a beat and blends their voices impressively.
"We have amazing talent," Lastra said.
Trenteseaux said what she is looking forward to most is
having her students come watch the show.
She said having students of the teaching cast come to the
show teaches them to become involved.
"The kids get to see us doing something locally and in the
community," she said.
And "Phantom of the Op'ry" is something everyone can


enjoy because it's a spoof of the original with a country twist and
slapstick humor, Grant said.
"Some of it is pure corny but it's definitely different," she
.said.
This is the first musical and first comedy Lastra has directed,
but she said the community needs both, and "Phantom" delivers,
especially with the unexpected twist that is revealed at the end.
"It's just a silly, wacky comedy, especially for people who've
seen the Phantom of the Opera. Whether you like it or don't like
it, it's nice to do something fun and goofy. That's what we need.
Everything all of us are going through in this time and society.
This play let's us be goofy. Just when you think we can't be any
sillier, we get sillier. You'll see."
General admission tickets are $12 and student and senior
Christine Swansong (Stacey Trenteseaux) attempts to manuever away from the tickets are $10. Performances are held at The Chief Theatre, 25

the stage, a chandelier "drops" on the audience, the
mysterious phantom disappears and reappears. Tickets

Trinity gets pastWilliston in extra innings


Inability to move runners costs Red Devils in loss

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Williston Head Baseball Coach Jim Smith has used a simple plan for
producing runs so far in 2010: Get them on, get them over, get them in.
Saturday against Trinity Catholic, the middle portion of that strategy
broke down.
Jalen Gooden delivered a two-out, two-run single in the top of the
ninth inning to lift the Celtics over the Red Devils 4-2 in the final game
of the second annual Breast Cancer Awareness showcase. The event
featured two other games -- Gainesville Buchholz' 10-0 win over Ocala .
Vanguard, and Gainesville's 11-6 victory over North Marion.
The final game of the day, pitting Williston and Trinity Catholic, was
easily the most compelling. The Celtics struck first, getting a second-
inning run off starter Max White. Moose Willingham led off the inning
with a walk and came around to score on a double to the right center-
field wall by Ty O'Shields.
Williston came right back though with a fourth-inning run off Trinity
starter Sean Plunkett. Christian Morris coaxed a two-out walk off
Plunkett, and pinch runner Justin Forsythe advanced to second when g.1.
Justin Baker also walked. Bradley Jones then scored Forsythe with the ,.! .
tying run.
Williston took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the fifth inning on a sacrifice .
fly by D.J. King. Lawrence Jones reached base on an outfield error, and
advanced to second when Connor Clayton singled to center field. Austin
Etheridge's sacrifice bunt moved both runners forward and King drove
the first pitch he saw to center field, scoring Jones.
But Trinity proved equal to the task, tying the game once more with
a single run in the sixth inning. Drew Brandies was hit by a pitch and
advanced to second on a bunt single by David Bergmaier. The runners
pulled a double steal, and Brandies came home on a groundout by
Willingham.
Williston had a golden opportunity to retake the lead in its half of the Williston Head Coach Jim Smith rallies his players between innings, include.

pitcher Dominic Landry got out of the jam with a strikeout and a flyout
to right field.
Both teams threatened in the eighth inning, but neither was able to
get a run home. Kyle Teat reached base for the Celtics and advanced
to second on a sacrifice bunt by Brandies. But Williston reliever Caleb
Mederios got a popup to the catcher and a infield groundout to end the
inning.
' Williston got its leadoff batter on base as well in the bottom of the
inning. White walked and eventually stole second, but only after the Red
Devils failed to move him forward with a sacrifice bunt.
O'Shields reached base on a two-out single in the Trinity Catholic '
half of the ninth, and advanced to second when Kyle Kennedy walked.
Both runners moved up on a wild pitch before Gooden delivered the
eventual game-winner, a hard-hit grounder into right field.
Later, Smith complimented his two pitchers, but said his team must .
work hard to improve its offensive short game.
"Once Caleb got into a rhythm he threw real well, and Max White
gave us a good effort" he said. "I thought we also played real well on
defense. But we did not do a good job on offense. Against a good baseball
team, you cannot leave base runners out there. We did not execute the
short game today, and that is my fault. Fortunately, we have all next Williston starting pitcher Max White hurls a pitch to a Trinity Catholic batter
