A Levy County jury deliberated for
about an hour Monday before finding R.J.
Reynolds Tobacco Company negligent
in the lung cancer death of a Morriston
cigarette smoker and awarding $80 million
in damages to his daughter.
James Kayce Horner, a cigarette smoker
for 60 years who started smoking three
decades before warning labels were posted
on cigarette packages, was found to be 10
percent at fault in his own death while R.J.
Reynolds was 90 percent at fault.
The jury found that Homer, who
died at age 78, was addicted to cigarettes


manufactured by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco
Company and that the addiction caused his
death. The lawsuit accused the company
of conspiring to keep the truth about the
dangers of cigarette smoking away from
the public.
"The truth about this industry remains
an eye-opening tale of arrogance and
disdain for public health," said Attorney
David Sales, who tried the case with
Attorney James Gustafson "People need
to be reminded, again and again, of the true
cost in precious human life that R.J.
Reynolds has imposed and continues to
impose on our society."

Inaugural Vets Day Parade thrills Hospital project


By Rick Burnham
Editor

What began as a suggestion among Chiefland City
officials nearly a year ago to honor local veterans with a
parade materialized like few thought it would. By the time
they lined up for the first annual Levy County Veterans
Day Parade Saturday in Chiefland, even the organizers
themselves had no idea how many participants there were.
It was the parade that just kept going and going. And
going.
Best estimates among city officials were that nearly 100
entries took part in the event, which began at Chiefland
High School and culminated in a celebration of service and
sacrifice at the Historic Train Depot.
Free hot dogs, chips, cookies and drinks and miniature
American flags were handed out by volunteers.
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas, who was among
the first to discuss a potential parade months ago, took the
stage and the microphone first at the depot. His words were
of gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by the
area's veterans.
"Today we come together as a group of citizens from a
grateful nation," he said. "We are grateful to you veterans,
to our soldiers, that you chose, many years ago, the many
branches of the service to serve your country. We know
freedom is not free. We just hope this parade is a small
token to show you how much we appreciate you, how
thankful we are, and I hope that you are honored today."
Douglas gave way to Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy,
who spoke on behalf of government officials throughout
the county.
"On behalf of all the city commissioners from all the
cities in Levy County, and the Levy County Board of County
Commissioners, we want to thank you for your service to
our country," he said. "We hope that you are honored not
only today, but every day."


Chiefland City Commissioner Frank Buie, a World
War II veteran, waves to the crowd.

Hudson, former preacher at Hardeeville Baptist Church,
a 21-gun salute, and a speech by Florida state legislator
Leonard Bembry, whose District 10 includes portions of
Levy County.
Bembry told the crowd that he enjoys coming to Levy
County, particularly on a picture-perfect day such as
Saturday.

remains a go, but


bond financing


may not happen

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Levy County commissioners Tuesday approved
documents intended to accelerate the process of funding
the Tri County Hospital with tax-free federal bonds, but in
the same stroke they adopted a document that would allow
return of the bonds to the state if the bond issue can't be
completed by year's end.
The county learned on Nov. 8 that the state Division
of Bond Finance had received $17.4 million of additional
federal Recovery Zone Facility Bonds for the hospital
project, increasing the total allocation for Levy County to
$70 million, enough to fund the entire hospital project.
While hopes appeared high following the announcement,
an e-mail from Gregory R. Moxley to County Attorney
Anne Bast Brown seemed to throw a dash of cold water
on the good news. Moxley said it appears the bond issue
won't be feasible by Dec. 31, deadline to use the federal
tax-free bonds, but he was confident the hospital would be
built using a different form of financing.
Moxley works for Dasco, a medical real estate company.
Dasco is one of the firms working on financing for the
hospital. Raymond James is underwriter for the bonds and
would sell the bonds to private investors. The money raised
from sale of the bonds would be loaned to Ameris Health

Cedar Key hosts grand opening for Welcome Center


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Cedar Key Chamber of Commerce
held a grand opening last week for its
handsome ne'w Welcome Center. a building
that was transformed from a decaying
house into a show case where visitors can
learn about the island city.
Following an S80,000 renovation funded
by the city's Community Redevelopment
Agency and approved by the city
commission, the chamber began using the
Creswell House, as it was once known, as a
Welcome Center for visitors in October.
Chamber President Tina Ryan said the
Welcome Center is part ofa new partnership
between the chamber and the City of Cedar
Key. She said the term "New Chamber" has
been bantied about, and some feel it's not a
correct label. But she said there is reason to
think of the organization in new terms.
"Not because there's new leadership. Our
leadership is not really new since several
of our board members have served for
many years. And not because there's a new
home for our Welcome Center. But because
of the new partnership with the City of
Cedar Key, the new enthusiasm among our
members, the new support from our local
businesses and residents, the new feeling of
progress and the renewed commitment by
all of us to make our wonderful city a place
to be proud of," Ryan said. "So while the
chamber itself isn't new, our future IS new
and bright."
An estimated 150 people attended the


H OII I %s


grand opening. Most of the guests spent
the exenine dining on finger foods in the
courtyard behind the turcuoise-colored
Welcome Center. The color \aas selected
based on the color of paint found on the
ceiling of one of the porches.
Visitors to the citx can use the Welcome
Center to find out information about the
tox\n. its history and accommodations.
The city purchased the Creswell House
in the early 2000s before anyone came up
with the idea of giving it a facelift inside
and converting it to a Welcome Center.
Andrea Dennison. chamber secretary
to the board, said when she first walked
into the home with her husband. Ci-t
Commissioner Jim Dennison, before it was
remodeled, it was in such disrepair that it
appeared to be beyond saving.
But Ken Inglert, who restores historical
buildings, took on the project and was able
to transform the aging home into a place
of beauty. The front porch was torn off and
a front stairwell was added. The rear sun
room had to be elevated. One bedroom
was converted to a conference room. The
kitchen became a handicapped-accessible
bathroom.
In 2009 Cedar Key was named Rural
Community of the Year, but Dennison
said it is the community's spirit that made
that award possible and transformed the
aging Creswell House into an object of
community pride.
"It's because of community spirit this
building is the heart of our community,"
Dennison said.

Haven Hospice holds breakfast for local vets


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor


They converged on fHaven Hospice earl% Nov. 11.
long before man\ of their country men had hit the snooze
button for the first time.
Such is the life of the U.S. veteran.
Four dozen %%ere on hand for Hav men's third annual
Veterans Da% breakfast. a celebration of grit and
determination, of sacrifice. duty and honor. The group
included veterans from around the Tri-County area, and
had representative es from the U.S. Army. U.S. Navy. U.S.
Marine Corps. U.S. Air Force and U.S. Coast Guard.
Those in attendance served in the Korean and Vietnam
Conflicts, as well as Desert Storm, Desert Shield, the War
in Iraq and the War in Afghanistan.
Two veterans of World War II were also in attendance.
Haven Hospice cook Monica Harvey and a dozen
volunteers laid out a spread that included eggs, biscuits
and gravy, potato casserole, sausage, and a wide variety of
fresh fruit.
Haven Hospice Volunteer Liaison Muriel Ellison said
there is no more important group to honor than the area's
veterans.
"We try to do everything we can for them," she said.
The group is always so appreciative, added Vondla
Sullivan.
"They are so gracious," she added.
The group ate while Coast Guard veteran Jim
Parks read a poem that embodied the plight of the U.S.
soldier. The piece highlighted a passage that described
the "soldier's part, is to clean up all the troubles that
the politicians start," drawing laughter from those in
attendance.
MaryAnn McQueen, 86, a meteorologist with the U.S.
Navy during World War II, attended the Haven Hospice
Veterans Day Breakfast for the second straight year, and
in between bites took time out to say thanks to her hosts.
"This is great. Thank you."
McQueen spent a few moments speaking with fellow
World War II veteran John Howell of Fanning Springs,
who took photographs of five U.S. presidents during
his time Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, Lyndon
Johnson, Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon.


Laura Meisner puts food
Breakfast Nov. 11.
Did you know?
Representative' Edwin K. Rees of
Kansas made a proposal in 1953
to Change Armistice Day to Veter-
ans Day, and make it an occasion
to honor those who have served
America in all wars. In 1954 Presi-
dent Dwight Eisenhower signed a
bill proclaiming Nov. 11 as Veter-
ans Day. The focal point for official,
national ceremonies for Veterans
Day continues to be the memo-
rial amphitheater built around the
Tomb of the Unknowns. At 11 a.m.
on Nov. 11, a combined color guard
representing all military services ex-
ecutes "Present Arms" at the tomb.
The nation's tribute to its war dead
is symbolized by the laying of a
presidential wreath.

Local chapters of anti-tobacco groups


celebrating GreatAmerican Smokeout


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Cigarette smokers often get hooked on
the nicotine and can't quit.
But smokers are being urged to give
it a try Thursday during the 351 Great
American Smokeout.
The Levy County Coalition Against
Tobacco, the Florida Department of Health,
and Tobacco Free Florida are encouraging
people to stop smoking for 24 hours or use
the day to make a plan to quit.
The event raises awareness about the
dangers of smoking and the ways available
to successfully give up smoking.
In Florida, 61 percent of adults who
have ever smoked have quit. In 2008, 55.7
percent of cigarette smokers in Florida
made an attempt to quit.

Smoker, from Page 1


Those who weren't successful should
continue trying because most successful
quitters make several attempts before
finally quitting permanently, according
to Tobacco Free Florida and the Levy
Coalition Against Tobacco.
Those two groups, along with the health
department, say tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of disease and premature
death in the United States. They say each
year 28,700 adult Floridians die from
smoking.
Levy County Students Working Against
Tobacco (SWAT) chapters will be hosting
school events Thursday as part of the Great
American Smokeout. Students will focus
their activities on education and awareness
about tobacco use as an epidemic.
Newly released data from the 2010
Florida Youth Tobacco Survey reveals 16


Jurors found that "defective and unreasonably dangerous
cigarettes" marketed by R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company caused
Homer's death and that the company concealed or omitted
important information about the health effects of smoking
cigarettes, including the addictive effects of nicotine, which led
to his death.
The jury sat through eight days of testimony and was asked to
look at a range of issues including whether the weight of evidence
suggested Homer was responsible for his own death or whether
R. J. Reynolds bore a greater responsibility.
They were also asked to decide if Homer himself was negligent
in his efforts to quit smoking and that this negligence was a
partial cause of his death along with the acts and omissions of the
tobacco company that manufactured the cigarettes he smoked.
Gustafson, a West Palm Beach attorney, said the jury
recognized the law "and the conduct of R.J. Reynolds. It was
awful and terrible." He said cigarette companies are aware that
nicotine addicts smokers.
"The secret of their success is nicotine. They smoke because
they are physically addicted like heroin or cocaine, only you can
get it at a Winn Dixie." Gustafson said.
Dianne Webb. daughter of Horner and personal representative
of his estate, filed the lawsuit against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco
Company. manufacturer of Camels. Lucky Strikes and Pall Malls,
the cigarettes Horner smoked.
Jurors were exposed to evidence that tobacco companies used
their wealth and influence to prevent the public from knowing
the dangers of smoking. A pulmonologist testified at the Levy
County trial that the tobacco industry awarded a research grant
of $10 million to the American Medical Association in 1962.
The AMA maintained until 1979 that there was no proven link
between smoking and lung cancer.
"They were essentially bribed by the tobacco industry."
Gustafson said.


percent of middle school and 31.5 percent
of high school students in Levy County
report current use of tobacco. The statewide
rate for tobacco use is 8.7 percent for
middle school children and 22.5 percent for
high school students.
Tobacco Free Florida offers resources to
help smokers quit.
Call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-
U-CAN-NOW to speak with a quit coach
who will help assess the user's addiction
and create a personalized quit plan.

counseling with the Florida Quitline. Visit

Smokers can also visit the Florida
Area Health Education Centers (AHEC)
Network web site, http://ahectobacco.com
to locate the nearest center and sign up for
Quit Smoking Now group classes.


Mike Cummings, a Roswell Park Institute health instructor
and expert on tobacco companies, waits for a question as he
testifies at trial.

Systems, the company planning to
build the hospital.
"In a follow upto our conversation
today, I wanted to confirm with
you our discussions with Raymond
James and their feeling that the bond
issuance is not feasible by year end,"
Moxley said. "We remain extremely
confident that we can get this project
completed in the coming months
with alternative financing structures
and look forward to working with
you and Levy County."
Sam Lewis, chief executive
officer and president of Ameris
Health Systems said delays in state
government reassigning bonds to
Levy County are causing tremendous
challenges for his company, but he
said a team of 15 people is working
to complete the bond issue before
the Dec. 31 deadline.
"It's a lot of work to get done in
50 days, but were pluggin'," Lewis
said.
Lewis said the work to be done
includes completing a feasibility
study and drafting and signing
various agreements related to the
complex bond issue process.
"If it don't happen, it's not
because we didn't try," Lewis said.
County commissioners approved
an "inducement agreement" Tuesday
that rearranged the normal bond
issuance process to allow Raymond
James to offer the bonds early to
investors, giving them adequate time
to review their risks and prepare to
invest their money.
The document also allows
county officials and their employees
to undertake certain actions related
to the bond issue and to conduct a
public hearing necessary for the
county commission to act on the
bonds. The public hearing is Dec.
7.
Commissioners also approved
a motion that would allow them to
recover $23.000 for their attorney's
work on the bonds and an additional
$2.500 in administrative costs. At the
suggestion of Commissioner Ryan
Bell. commissioners limited how
much reimbursement they would
request to avoid the appearance
that they were not supportive of the
hospital project. Bell said he wanted
to be sure the county was still clearly
supporting the hospital project.

Bronson accepts land donation for fire department


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A major landowner in Levy County has agreed to
donate 6.73 acres of land next door to the Levy County
Agricultural Center as the site of a firehouse and fire
training center for Bronson.
Town Council members Monday voted unanimously
to approve a resolution that sets in motion the actions
necessary to accept transfer of the property to the town.
The resolution says the town agrees to the company's
conditions for taking ownership of the land along U.S.
27A.
The donor will be Sleepy Creek Farms, LLC., according
to the resolution presented to council members by Town
Clerk Kelli Brettel. She said Sleepy Creek Farms, LLC is
a large landowner in the Bronson area.
Brettel landed the donation. When she found that
American Forest had closed its water account with
the town, she contacted the new owner of the property,
Sleepy Creek Farm Inc. about possibly converting the old


American Forestry office site into a Bronson Volunteer
Fire Department site and a training center.
The office site she inquired about wasn't available, but
the company was interested in selling the town a piece of
land. Brettel asked if the company would donate a small
tract to the town. The company agreed to donate 6.73
acres.
The Town Council had discussed long-term plans to
build a new firehouse and a fire training center somewhere
in Bronson. The issue had been discussed at a recent
visioning session with state officials, but no one thought a
site would become available this soon.
"I wish I could talk people into donating 7 acres of
land. I'd do it every day," said Town Attorney Steve Warm,
commenting on Brettel's persuasive talents.
In other business, the council unanimously approved
a motion by Councilman Berlon Weeks to hire Mills
Engineering to survey the elevations at five sites where an
old mosquito control drainage ditch passes under streets
and roads in and around Bronson.
Council members also authorized Wann to investigate


the town's legal options for stopping the Federal Emergency
Management Agency from declaring portions of the town's
commercial district as lying in the 100-year flood zone.
The designation, if it stands, would require mortgaged
property to carry expensive federal flood insurance.
The town is opposed to FEMA's plan establishing
portions of downtown Bronson as a high risk flood
area. FEMA contracted with the Suwannee River Water
Management District to conduct a study of flood zones
in the county. SRWMD in turn hired a company known
as URS to conduct the study. The updated maps are
still proposed, but show a 70-year-old mosquito control
drainage ditch that runs behind the commercial district as
flooding in a 100-year storm.
Weeks said the town has never flooded and that is a
historical fact, but Weeks also said he is convinced the
Florida Department of Transportation altered Bronson's
drainage when it expanded U.S. 27A several years ago to
a four lane highway. He said FDOT refuses to admit that it
changed the town's drainage with the project.

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland Elementary School saluted local veterans
last week in a ceremony that drew a standing-room-only
crowd to the cafeteria.
The school's 174 kindergarten students sang "You're
a grand old Flag" from the stage and later distributed
cookies to the veterans who stood to accept them.
The oldest of the veterans, Lt. Col. William R.
Coutts, Ret., stood to be recognized and commended the
organizers for the recognition of veterans.
"Thank you all for coming to honor the veterans,"
Coutts said. "They deserve it."
Coutts joined the U.S. Army on July 20, 1942 after
basic training and advanced training in armor and was sent
to serve in Europe during World War II. Upon his return in
1945 he served in the reserves until going back into active
duty in 1948. He returned to the 2nd Armored Division
in Fort Hood. Texas. In November of 1950, Coutts was
called to war in Korea.
Coutts served in Japan, Germany, New Jersey and
Virginia before being called again to war in Vietnam.
When he returned home he continued to serve in Virginia,
later Taiwan, and came back to the states after his last
overseas tour to retire from Fort Eustis, Virginia as a Lt.
Colonel in 1971.
A slide presentation featured the photos of many local
veterans, many of them related to staff and students at
CES. Their names and faces were shown to the assembly.

Clarke. Major David E. Grisham. SSG Leo Sliney of

team handled the organizing of the event and came up
with the idea for a x veterans celebration. Nellie Ramirez
and Ka \Warel assembled a display of veteran's
photographs in the courtyard.
"We had a lot of good feedback," MNcCully said.
A celebration honoring \ veterans will be held next year
at the school, probably\ bigger than the first, given the
positive response of the community, McCully added.

and not much bigger
around, than the 12 gauge
shotgun I was lugging
into the woods that opening
morning. Yet, the feel of that
big chunk of steel in my hands
made me feel ten foot tall. I'd
dreamed of this day for weeks,
and my big buck bagging '
aspirations had town as lofty y
as the towering white oaks But Anyway...
my dad was leading us to. Of with Guy Shefielt
course, I'd be following in
some mighty big footsteps, him
being a local hunting legend and all.
Just upwind from the three-wheeler we arrived at a
place called the bottleneck. Dad motioned for me to sit
by a little persimmon tree, so I leaned back against its
rough bark and slid down to burrow my bony bottom
into the dewy leaves at its base. "When those dogs get to
running," dad coached, "You keep your eyes peeled. That
double-ought buckshot art to put one down."
I nodded like a rat terrier lapping up a thermos of
truck stop coffee. Dad, sensing my over-excitement,
wisely decided to run another gun safety lecture by me
before heading off. He also secured a promise that I
wouldn't shoot at any more squirrels. I scoffed, "That was
last year daddy. I'm growed up now."
For the next twenty minutes my senses were alive to
every detail of the forest. I could almost smell the ridicule
emanating from those cocky little squirrels who mocked
me from the treetops. I was 'One' with the woods. IfI
could only kill a deer, surely it would secure my rite of
passage to manhood. Dad would be so proud. Therefore,
it kind of shocked me later when I found myself suddenly
snapping awake. Wiping away the puddle of slobber
collecting on my lapel, I quickly looked around to make
sure dad hadn't caught me nodding. That's when I noticed
it. A good sized deer was standing out in front of me, not
thirty paces off.
My heart began drumming the inside of my ribs, and
that gun seemed to levitate to my shoulder. My finger
felt about frantically for that little safety do-hicky daddy
always made me use. I was just about to fire off a shot
when I suddenly remembered, "I'm supposed to look for
horns."
"Dog," I huffed after a quick scan, "A dumb doe!"
The deer must've heard me, for he twitched his big
ole' ears and revealed that he did indeed possess a little
rack of horns! Faster'n that revelation could fully reach
my understanding the gun was leaping in my hands.
Then, to my surprise, the deer was also leaping; off into
the foliage! My jaw slung open. I swallowed hard to fight


down a tear. I'd missed from thirty paces.
In no time, dad appeared. Cautiously he instructed me
to reapply the safety and he began his questioning. "How
far was he? Which way did he go? Yada yada yada..."
He wanted to line the whole place off like a police scene;
like that was going to help! I didn't feel like harping on
the past, so I sulked back to the three-wheeler and began
revving the engine until he finally got the message.
The next day we drove out to the deer camp for lunch.
A group of fellows was congregated out front, admiring
a nice buck hanging from the skinning rack. Everybody
was slapping a young fellow on the back, congratulating
him and so forth. When they saw us, the ring leader
spoke up. "Emory, wasn't you and your boy hunting the
bottleneck yesterday A hush came on the crowd as he
continued. "We found a little hat-rack six point lying dead
not forty yards from where I saw your boy sleeping. We
was gonna drag em' in, but the meat done spoilt in this
heat and all."
"Boy," dad shouted, slapping me with his orange cap,
"You told me you missed that buck!" Then to save face,
he went on to recount how I'd fired up the three-wheeler
and disrupted his tracking plans. Everybody shook their
heads somberly. (They take deer hunting mighty serious
in Mississippi.)
Needless to say, that little six-pointer wasn't the only
one who ran off with his heart shot out that weekend. I
just felt sick. I moped for a month. My rite of passage
would have to wait for another day. In fact, I'm not sure
I ever did make that macho trip to manhood. If I did, I'm
not sure when. After all, what constitutes being a real
man? How do you know when you got what it takes?
When have you killed enough deer?
But anyway- The more I've grow in my relationship
with Jesus the more I've started to realize, manhood is
not something we attain to, it's something we are called
to. There's a difference. One looks to outward deeds, the
other develops the inward seeds; the ones God planted.
The truth is my manhood should not be based on this
world's warped standards. God has already called me
a man. Therefore I am. The more I understand my
identity in Him the more I am set free to realize- "The
true measure of a man is the measure in which he allows
Christ to live through him."
I used to wonder if I should've gone ahead and shot
one of those dumb squirrels. Maybe I would've gotten a
little acceptance. What I didn't know at the time was, I
was already accepted! (To the praise of the glory of his
grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Ephesians 1:6 KJV)

Hall. Cake and punch will be served.
Cobb was born on Nov. 29, 1910, near

served for 32 years as Levy County Tax

while serving in the Army in World War 11.
Cobb has also served as mayor of
Bronson and was a founding member of the
First Federal Savings and Loan in Bronson.
He has served the community through
many charities, organizations, councils and
boards.
He has cooked food for countless events,
fundraisers, charity and church functions.

Golf Tournament for cooking his famous
hushpuppies for this event for more than 25
years.
Cobb became an ordained Deacon in
the early 1940s and remained an active
Deacon until earlier this year. He also began
teaching Sunday School in the early 1940s
and he continues to do this every Sunday
morning. Service to God, country, family
and community has always been important
to him and something he considers a
privilege.
Help family and friends celebrate his
100th birthday by stopping by the reception
and visiting for a time. Absolutely no
gifts or even cards only the presence of
family, friends and neighbors with birthday
sentiments for the honoree are requested.

Political judges


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


grove, ing numbers of Americans are fed up
.,ith "public ser ants" who act as if they are
public masters. This went beyond the usual
objections to particular policies. It was the fact that
policies were crammed down our throats. whether we
liked them or not. In fact, laws were passed so fast that ',
nobody had time to read them.
Whether these policies were good. bad or
indifferent, the w ay they were imposed represented
a more fundamental threat to the very principles of a
self-governing people established by the Constitution
of the United States.
Arrogant politicians who do this are dismantling '
the Constitution piecemeal- which is to say, they are
dismantling America. .
The voters struck back, as they had to, if we are
to keep the freedoms that define this country. The
Constitution cannot protect us unless we protect the
Constitution, by getting rid of those who circumvent it or disregard it.
. The same thing applies to judges. The runaway arrogance that politicians get when
they have huge majorities in Congress is a more or less common arrogance among
federal judges with lifetime tenure or state judges who are seldom defeated in elections
to confirm their appointments to the bench.
It was a surprise to many- and a shock to media liberals- when three judges on
Iowa's Supreme Court were voted off that court in the same recent elections in which a
lot of politicians were also sent packing.
These judges had taken it upon themselves to rule that the voters of Iowa did
not have the right to block attempts to change the definition of marriage to include
homosexual couples. Here again, the particular issue- so-called "gay marriage"- was
not as fundamental as the question of depriving the voting public of their right to decide
what kinds of laws they want to live under.
That is ultimately a question of deciding what kind of country this is to be- one


ruled b "'. e the people" or one w here the notions of an arrogant elite are to be
imposed. whether the people agree or not.
Those \\ho believe in ga\ marriage are tree to \ote for it.
But. when the\ lose that \ote. it is not the role of judges to nullify the xote and
legislate from the bench. Judges who become politicians in robes often lie like
politicians as Nwell. claiming that they are just apply ing the Constitution. when they are
in fact exercising po ers that the Constitution never gave them.
If they are going to act like politicians, then they should be voted out like politicians.
Media liberals. \\ho like \ hat liberal judges do, spring to their defense. The media
spin is that judges were voted off the bench because of "unpopular" decisions and that
this threatens judicial "independence."
Since this was the first time that a justice of the Iowa Supreme'Court was voted
off the bench in nearly half a century. it is very doubtful that there was never an
"'unpopular" court decision in all that time. The media spin about "unpopular" decisions
sidesteps the far more important question of whether the judges usurped powers that
were never given to them by the Constitution.
As for judicial "independence," that does not mean being independent of the laws.
Being a judge does not mean being given arbitrary powers to enact the liberal agenda
from the bench, which means depriving the citizens of their most basic rights that define
a free and self-governing people.
While removing three state Supreme Court justices at one time in Iowa is news
today, the very same thing happened in California back in the 1970s. Every single death
penalty imposed by a trial court in California was overturned by the state Supreme
Court, with Chief Justice Rose Bird voting 64 times in a row that there was something
wrong with the way each trial had been conducted. That was world-class chutzpa.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that Arizona does not have a right
to require proof of citizenship before someone can vote. Where does it say that in the
Constitution?
The time is long overdue to stop treating judges like sacred cows, especially when
they have so much bull.

No illegal alien pilot left behind


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


Elmo moment for the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security. While Islamic
terrorists groom suicide bombers
starting in kindergarten, the grownups
in charge of protecting America can't
seem to reach an elementary level of
competence.
The "good" news: Hindsight-driven
bureaucrats at DHS moved to ban high-
risk cargo from Yemen and Somalia this
week after a global air scare involving
makeshift printer/toner cartridge-bombs.
The bad news: More than nine years
after the 9/11 jihadist attacks, untold
numbers of high-risk (SET ITAL) flyers
(END ITAL) have been able to board, ride and pilot
American planes -- some with Transportation Security
Administration approval to boot.
Outside Boston, one shady flight school provided
single-engine pilot lessons to at least 33 illegal
immigrants from Brazil. But clear counter-terror rules
ban illegal aliens from enrolling in U.S. flight schools.
Clear counter-terror regulations require TSA to run
foreign flight students' names against a plethora of
terrorism, criminal and immigration databases. Head-
scratching airport security officials were at a loss last
week to explain how dozens of these illegal alien
students eluded their radar screen when the agency
"performs a thorough background check on each
applicant at the time of application" and checks "for
available disqualifying immigration information," the
Boston Globe reported.
A cluebat for the Keystone Kops: No matter how
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano might spin it, the
"system" is not "working" in any sense of either word.
Whistleblowers have warned for years about the
gaping holes in both the TSA's and the Federal Aviation
Administration's foreign pilot screening systems. In
2005, aviation safety inspector Edward H. Blount of the
Alabama Flight Standards District Office sent a letter to
the TSA warning of federal policies that were "fostering
illegal flight training by foreign individuals" in the
U.S. on improper visas. Blount reported that he and
another investigator were told by a TSA official that the
agency was "not going to look at the visa status" of pilot
applicants.
The next year, TSA issued a backside-covering memo
shirking responsibility and instead pointing fingers at the
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and
the Department of State for neglecting to follow up on
rigorous immigration status checks for foreign pilots.
In 2008, ABC News discovered that thousands of
foreign nationals were able to enroll in flight schools
despite the strict flight security rules. "Some of the very
same conditions that allowed the 9-11 tragedy to happen
in the first place are still very much in existence today,"
one regional TSA officer warned. "TSA's enforcement
is basically nonexistent," former FAA inspector Bill


"Ii


McNease told the network. The matter
was kicked upstairs to DHS higher-ups
in Washington. And there it gathered
dust.
Compounding those persistent
gaps are the myriad ways the open-
borders lobby has undermined secure
identification. Homeland security
officials were warned years ago about
the use of bogus Mexican matricula
consular cards by illegal aliens boarding
planes. American banks have pandered


to the pro-amnesty lobby in search of
v illegal alien customers; the financial
industry championed the use of the
matricula consular cards as identification
despite widespread fraud, inability
to verify validating documents and
lack of any central database. Dozens
of municipalities have incorporated
consular cards as "valid" ID for illegal aliens, and three
states still issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.
Open-borders ideologues populate every corner of the
Obama administration, from DHS to the Department of
Justice, where civil rights division head Thomas Perez
has long crusaded for illegal alien licenses.
These comprehensive failures are partly attributable
to incompetence, partly attributable to industry pressure
and partly attributable to the intentional undermining of
the very immigration laws Congress passed after 9/11
-- laws specifically designed to prevent future alien
hijackers like the 9/11 monsters from so easily exploiting
the homeland security lapses that allowed them to live
and train here for years unencumbered even after their
temporary visas had expired.
As I reported in the aftermath of the would-be
Christmas Day bomber fiasco last year, data are only
as good as the people entrusted to collect, process and
use the information to protect national security. Without
the ability to share and access the information across
numerous agencies, the data are useless. There is still
no functional interoperability among an alphabet soup
of national security and criminal databases -- including
NAILS, TECS, CLASS, VISAS VIPER, TUSCAN,
TIPPIX, IBIS, CIS, APIS, SAVE, IDENT, DACS, AFIS,
ENFORCE and the NCIC. The Senate raised questions
about understaffed efforts to modernize some of these
databases last spring. They're still waiting for answers.
As usual, the homeland security moppets under
fire stress that they found no links to terrorism among
the immigration law-breaking flight students outside
Boston. This misses the gobsmackingly obvious point
that, despite billions of dollars and years of bureaucratic
expansion, our homeland security infrastructure cannot
yet provide adequate protection against unauthorized,
unscreened, undocumented and unwanted intruders --
terror-related or not. That is not a consolation. That is an
indictment.

My trip to

By Rick Burnham
Editor

T hi, ma; pinch a little.

mi nev. dental technician as
she lid a block ot'something in
betV'.wcn my check land gum in preparation
for one ot approximartcl 803 x-rays one
dax last w eek. Ic he ckup was part of the
general health examination being ordered
recommended bh m wx ife.
Who loves me er\ much.
So this dental technician, who
seemed very nice but was probably
some sadomasochist. broke off the end
of a wooden ruler and then wedged it in
my mouth, covered me with a vest that
weighed 900 pounds, and then blasted my
head with enough radiation to turn me into
a living and breathing skeleton. And then
she did it again. And again. And infinity.
She was a nice dental technician, who
seemed genuinely concerned about my
health and well-being. That is why she
practically insisted on getting a test done
for oral cancer.
I" don't smoke and I don't chew," I
said.
"Doesn't matter. Know who Michael
Douglas is'? Never smoked in his life. Now
he is dying of throat cancer."
Michael Douglas smoked. People do
not just develop a -lii. i raspy voice
like his by eating Junior Mints. Michael
Douglas smoked, and Attila the dental
technician told me a bold-faced lie to
entice me into having the oral exam done.
"What if I do not get this?"
"You will die."
So I got the $69 oral cancer exam
done, and they took the swab and rushed
the saliva out to the parking lot and put it
on a Lear jet to Amsterdam, where they
could determine right away just how long
I have to live because of the tumor that is
no doubt developing in my mouth even as
I type this.
Actually, I am pretty sure the saliva
sample they took from me is still sitting
there in the dish where they originally put
it, and they will get to it in their own sweet
time. But back to the x-rays.
My new dentist came in a short time

Growing state and federal agencies often


treat the average person like doormat


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Occasionally I gripe in this column about my
experiences in dealing with government at various
levels, especially when I've been treated like a
doormat. I know many of you have had similar
experiences when dealing with state or federal agencies.
Earlier this week I called the Florida Department of Revenue.
Before making the call, I went online to find a telephone number
for the public information office in the massive state agency.
There was no telephone number listed for news media relations.
I started by calling the executive director's office. The
receptionist referred me to Renee Waters, the only person in the
entire agency of 5,000 employees who takes calls and responds
to e-mail questions from hundreds of newspapers, television
stations and internet news organizations in Florida.
The fact that an agency of this size has one public information
person tells me how much sensitivity the agency has to public
inquiries. It is an agency that levies every state tax in Florida.
Renee, bless her heart, had to go to a doctor's appointment the
morning I called and couldn't return my calls until the afternoon.
I was unaware until she returned my call that she was the lone
person in an agency 2 /2 times the size of Chiefland (including
men, women, children and household pets) that could talk to
reporters. I tried several times to find a shortcut around Renee's


voice mail and was passed around like an old shoe between
secretaries in various offices.
Perhaps 15 years ago, reporters could place calls to warm
bodies in the DOR and talk to tax experts to obtain real
information. I asked one secretary why that practice had changed;
She informed me that bad information was going out and they
had put a stop to that practice.
To be honest, not all reporters are accurate in their reporting.
I could understand why DOR had decided to narrow the number
of people who could speak for the agency, but I believe there was
a bit of dishonesty in the policy. Government agencies typically
are obsessive about controlling information and muzzling
employees. They don't want a bad image. They don't want bad
publicity. When the agency makes a mistake, officials don't want
the mistake published or broadcast by the news media.
Renee Watters is the result of DOR's obsession with muzzling
employees and controlling information released by the agency.
She is an excellent public information person, but she is also the
sole person responsible for talking to the news media in DOR.
Someone in DOR is interested in controlling information released
by the agency.
There has been an evolution over the years regarding the
methods used by state agencies to disseminate information.
Agencies today use the internet to give out generic information

Williston's Hunn headed for Florida Southern College


Story and photo by Rick Burnham

They crowded into the Williston High
School library on Friday people who
knew a lot about softball and others who
knew very little to celebrate the success
of a student who has turned it into an art
form.
That's the way some describe the left-
handed swing of Dayna Hfunn. who signed
a four-year scholarship with the Lady
Moccasins of Florida Southern College in
Lakeland.
Hunn signed the scholarship offer with
her mother and father. Daswna and David
Hunn, and former WHS softball coach
Robert Patterson, by her side.
Playing catcher and third base for the
Lady Red Devils a year ago, Hunn batted
third and blasted double-digit home runs as
Williston advanced to the state final-four
tournament in Clermont.
Moments after signing the offer, Hunn
thanked the crowd for their support.
"I want to thank each and every one of
you in here for coming and for supporting
me all the way through. It means a lot to


me." she said.
Carl Williams. "who will coach the Lady
Red Devils during the upcoming season.
said Hunn has set a fine example for other
players to follow.
"We hope that the w ork that \ou do and
the work that you have done w ill wash off
on some of the youne ladies around here.
because if they pattern themselves after
you, it will be a very good work ethic to
have," he said.
Williston athletic director and head
football coach Jamie Baker said Hunn has
led by example during her time at WHS
- both on the field and in the classroom.
"She does not have to raise her hand and
say I want to go to college because when
you go to guidance and you pull her records
and you pull her transcripts, her transcripts
say she wants to go to college," he said.
"When I watch her play softball. prepare
for a softball game. and I look in her eyes
and see her demeanor on the field, I can tell
she wants to play college softball too. Not
because of any talent she has been given,
but because of what she has done with that
talent."
Later, David Hunn said seeing his

daughter accept the scholarship was well
worth all the hard work the family had put
into the backyard and on the ballfield.
"It is an amazing feeling, and it means
everything," he said. "This is worth all the
blood, sweat and tears over the years. It is
worth all the arguments, all the scraps we


have had in the yard. It is worth it all. This
is her day."
And the swing'?
"The swing is all hers," he said. "Her
mother and I were both just contact hitters,
nothing like her."


Undermanned in Branford
Amber Depew (right) and the Chiefland Lady Indians
basketball team were a bit undermanned in a preseason
tournament in Branford last week, losing 54-12 to Kris-
tiana Evens (left) and a tough Suwannee County squad.
Chiefland had at least four members of its team participat-
ing in homecoming pow wow activities back home, and
did not match up well against the Lady Bulldogs. New
Head Coach Sonya Schmidt promises bigger and better
things as the regular season gets underway this week.

note of the pictures they had taken of the teeth I have left.
I am a bit embarrassed to say that I have no idea how
many teeth the average human has in his or her head. But
she counted up to 32 of mine, excluding several digits
that had left the building over the years.
She relayed critical information of each tooth to Attila
the technician, along with her recommendations for the
work needed to make my smile identical to Brad Pitt's.
Tooth No. 32 was fine and dandy. Not a bit of wear
and tear on it. My pride and joy.
The rest have issues. I need fillings, and not just any
fillings either. They would like to fill my teeth with gold
shipped in from Fort Knox. And they would like to build
bridges as well, where the dearly departed teeth used
to hang out. And not just any bridges either. Sunshine

Witt, from Page 13


Skyway bridges that give any and all food that get caught
there a panoramic view of my whole mouth.
They would like some of my teeth to have crowns that
were previously worn by the Queen of England.
Look, I don't know that I need to have a smile like
Brad Pitt's, one that you can see from the Space Shuttle
at night. I am not talented enough in his line of work
to need a smile like that, just like he does not need the
flexibility to take a picture of a running back heading
the sideline, and then dance out of the way before the
running back in question gets tackled into his shins,
splintering them beyond recognition.
Brad has his life, I have mine.
The technician showed me a proposed list of
improvements, and I am not making this up they


came up to $8,974.99. And that was after the insurance
had already coughed up its portion.
"Just schedule me for a cleaning." They did, and
before I left Attila put this piece of foam covered with
goo into my mouth. Said it was fluoride. Was absolutely
the worst-tasting thing I have ever encountered. I had
to keep it in my mouth for a full minute, and about the
35-second mark teardrops began to slide slowly from my
eyes, onto my cheeks, and down onto my shirt.
She left that thing in for 64 seconds, long enough that
I was beginning to think she didn't like me very much.
My wife does though. That's why I got the
colonoscopy, and now that is why I got the dental exam.
Wonder what's next.


like rules and regulations. Most agencies
provide telephone numbers on their
internet site, but internet sites are also
being used as a buffer between agency
employees and the public. The agencies
expect people to go to the internet site for
answers before making the first call to an
agency official.
When I finally penetrated the DOR
bureaucracy, the answers came quickly
and the information by phone and e-mail
was accurate. But arriving at that point
was the problem. The attitude of many
of the receptionists was that I was like a
house fly buzzing around their ear and
they needed to brush me off. I was taking
up their valuable time.
It's not difficult to find state agency
employees like the ones I dealt with at
DOR. The state bureaucracy is nameless
and faceless. The people w ho pick up the
telephones are nothing more than human
voices that seem to have no feelings or
interest in providing information. The
people I conversed w\ith at DOR knew I


could not see them or identify them and
they didn't care.
Tallahassee has become a very big
place. Agencies are growing to the size
of good-sized cities. Taxpayers foot
the bill for all these state employees
and their retirement plans, but we don't
receive similar benefits in return. State
government, county governments and
city governments are allowing taxpayers
to foot the entire bill for their retirement
plans, but they don't care about the
taxpayers.
As miserable as I was trying to pry
information from DOR. it is hard to
imagine how difficult it is for the average
person to receive good customer service
by telephone when they are a member of
the Press. There is a degree of leverage
when I announce by telephone that I am a
reporter and I'm calling for information.
Agency officials know I can print what
they say. The average person doesn't hae
that power.
State and federal agencies are growing


to such incredible dimensions these days
that even the Press can get the brush
off. Secretaries can work in complete
anonymity. Their bosses can hide in
offices hidden from public view. They will
never see or shake the hands of residents
that call them. They will never see or
meet most of the people who call for
information.
Many times when I call state agencies
I get a voice mail first. The voice mail
forces me to go through menu prompts
before I find a warm body w ith whom
I can speak. It is insulting and time
consuming. The agencies are of such great
size that state employees know they don't
ha\ e to care about customer senrice. Thev
draw a paycheck and hope they can last
for 20 y ears to draw a retirement check.
courtesy of taxpayers.
The growing size of agencies is
creating another problem. Agencies
are being given the authority to make
rules that amount to laws. They are
making decisions that affect the


taxpaying public without input from the
Florida Legislature or Congress. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's captive wildlife policies
are a good example. For years, the agency
implemented rules allowing wildlife
lovers to adopt and care for non-native
wildlife such as lions, tigers and northern
bears in their backyards without ever
consulting neighbors. The neighbors
would wake up one morning to hear lions
and tigers roaring. Levy County and
County Commissioner Lilly Rooks in
particular have challenged the policy and
made progress, but the sheer size ofFWC
makes the agency difficult to deal with.
The recent election on Nov. 2 tells me
voters are becoming disenchanted with
the size and indifference of government
at the state and federal levels. They are
weary of being bullied. Perhaps change is
in the works. Perhaps the agencies can be
reduced in size by half and made to obey
their true masters the taxpaying public.
Perhaps not.

Union tops Williston

Williston racked up 141 yards rushing,
but it was not nearly enough against Union
County Nov. 12. The Tigers beat the Red .
Devils 28-7.
Still, Williston has accepted an invita-
tion to play Callahan West Nassau in a bowl
game on Thursday. Game time is at 7 p.m.
Williston finished the year at 5-5, and had
more than 3,000 yards total offense. Dontrelli
Edwards finished the year with 1,070 yards
rushing, good enough for 9.22 yards per
carry.
Brandon Preston picked up 432, while
Kalen Penny ran for 273.
Quarterback DJ King rushed for another
318 yards, and passed for 398. Ji
Damien Strange was Williston's leading
receiver in 2010 with 12 receptions for 289
yards. Tony James had eight receptions for
187 yards.
Williston was just as imposing on de-
fense. Darroll Jest and James Hunt led the
team with three sacks apiece, while Cole -
Youngblood and Jamarcus Brown picked up
two sacks apiece.
Orville Stone had four interceptions dur-
ing the year, while Desmond Holmes picked
up three. J

Thompson cracks 1,000-yard mark as 2010 season ends

Staff Writer


Chiefland ended a v inlc foothall season Frid:i

homecormino ~'ut the star po,,er oc senior running back
Jamant.e c I hu ripon continued to shine as he broke 1i.
yards ruhing.
I homp, on ran the ,II 30 times tor 146 yards to finish
the season v.ith 206 carries and 1.077 total %ards and 11
touchdown n,. a milestone considering the fortunes of an
extremely y oung team '. which consisted ofconsiderably more
freshmen and sophomores than juniors and seniors.
IHe scored a touchdown early in the third quarter from 5
yards out and punched it in from 5 y yards out at the end of the
third quarter.
Chiefland I ead Coach Jim O'Neal said Thompson's
numbers are particularly significant given the struggles of
the team.
"It's ver, unusual in my coaching career." he said. "I
can't think of any player on a team that went 0-10 rushing
for more than 1.000 yards. Jamantye missed one game with
the flu."
Chiefland's senior tight end, Bo Beauchamp, capped
off his career with an athletic catch in the fourth quarter.
Freshman quarterback James Corbin threw a line drive to the
6-feet 4-inch Beauchamp. He and a defender met in midair a
foot off the ground for a jump ball. Beauchamp came down
with it for the score.
O'Neal believes Beauchamp would have had an '.i1-. ii d
year as a tight end, but because he didn't have a seasoned
quarterback throwing the ball he finished the season with 9
receptions for 135 yards and 2 touchdowns.
"I'm 'i ,r- bfor the seniors. They played hard. It was a
difficult year to be a senior," O'Neal said.
O'Neal felt Chiefland gave a great effort against
undefeated Class 2B Taylor County. The statistics bore out
the team's efforts.
Chiefland made 12 first downs, Taylor County 10.
Chiefland rushed 40 times for 158 yards, Taylor County 33
for 116 yards. Chiefland averaged 3.95 yards per rush, Taylor
County 3.52 yards. Chiefland ran 57 players, Taylor County

6.34. Chiefland had 6 penalties for 35 yards. Tay lor County 9
for 81 yards. Chiefiand and Taylor County were near equals
on punt returns. with Chiefland giving up 15 yards and Taylor
County 8 yards. On kickoff returns. Chiefland gave up a total
of 10 yards. while Taylor County gave up 104 yards.
"That statistic used to be reversed." O'Neal said.
Chiefland picked up 235 total yards on offense. Taylor
County 374.
Passing is where Taylor County excelled, with senior
quarterback William Wentworth completing 16 of 26 passes
for 258 yards to receivers Moral Stephens, Chad Hall and
Jalen Jackson.
Corbin completed 5 of 17 passes for 77 yards and
the touchdown to Beauchamp. The touchdown pass to
Beauchamp was set up by a P.J. Allen interception that gave
Chiefland possession with 3:12 left in the fourth quarter. The
30-yard touchdown pass came soon after. Corbin also had an
interception late in the game.
The hitting was fierce at times Friday night. Senior
Kendon Wasson leveled a Taylor County running back in
the third quarter, laying him flat. It was the type of hit that
O'Neal liked to see from his team. Wasson, always relaxed,
made a big hit on the sideline and took a second to make a
humorous remark to a reporter covering the game.
The team never lost its fight and never hung its head.
"Obviously, record-wise this season we're not happy, but
every team that played us really knew our kids played hard,"
O'Neal said.
