It's official


Bronson is excellent


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Bronson town government has endured
more than its share of heartache for the past
seven years, but the town's determination to
dig out from the rubble of what happened
seven years ago has been recognized with
an award.
The Suwannee River League of Cities
recently presented the town with the
Community of Excellence Award for its
efforts to restore normal town operations
and regain the trust of the community
following the problems connected to the
former mayor.
In late 2003, news broke that former
mayor Jamie Griffin had stolen $200,000 in
town funds. He went to prison. The town's
records came back from investigating law


enforcement agencies in a jumble. Years of
audits were unfinished. Projects fell behind
schedule.
Town Council members regrouped. They
hired Town Clerk Kelli Brettel. She pieced
together a broken government with the
council's help. The council hired Deputy
Clerk Susie Robinson and Public Works
Director Jimmy Dunford. After considerable
effort, the town began to function normally
again.
Brettel nominated all five council
members earlier this year for what would
normally be a Suwannee River League
Award for one top official. She felt the full
council needed recognition. To her surprise,
the League presented the Community of
Excellence Award to Bronson at its most

to pay for some gas. His infant son was left
in the car's back seat. Calvillo climbed in
the car and drove away with the child. The
father called in the theft and what he could
remember of the tag number.
Marion County sheriff's investigators
called Williston police to alert them that the
stolen vehicle was probably headed their
way. At 12:55 a.m., Williston police officer
Micah Alfaro observed the vehicle at the
intersection of U.S. 27 and County Road 318.
The vehicle turned north on N.E. 13th St. and
a few minutes later turned on SR 121.
Alfaro notified the Marion County
sheriff's office that he had found the suspect
vehicle. He fell in behind the car and stopped
it along SR 121. There was no chase involved.
Calvillo exited the car. Alfaro ordered him to
the ground, but Alfaro jumped a fence and
ran toward a forested area.
After about an hour-long search, the
Marion County helicopter was able to find
Calvillo with its thermal imaging camera.
The helicopter hovered over the tree until K-
9 units and other law enforcement arrived to
make the arrest. Calvillo was hiding about 4
to 5 feet off the ground in a tree.
Calvillo was arrested on charges of
kidnapping, resisting arrest without violence
and no valid driver's license. Charges are
also pending in Marion County. Total bond
is $305,000.
Bond said Calvillo had been released from
state prison in 2009. He said his criminal
record is extensive and includes kidnapping.

A convicted felon with a long criminal
history was captured in Levy County Friday
night after stealing a car at a gas station in
Marion County and driving off with a 9-
month-old infant boy in the vehicle.
The child was found unharmed in the
stolen car later the same night after Frankie
Calvillo, 32, was stopped by a Williston
police officer on State Road 121. Calvillo
ran into a wooded area, leaving the child
behind.
Investigator James Bond of Williston
Police said a Marion County Sheriff's
Office helicopter equipped with a thermal
imaging camera arrived a few minutes later
along with Marion County K-9 units. The
helicopter located Calvillo hiding in a tree in
a forested area.
Calvillo was shot three times with a Taser
gun before he dropped to the ground and was
handcuffed and arrested by Williston police,
Marion County sheriff's officers and Levy
County sheriff's officers, all of whom had
converged at the same time.
"There was just a mass of cops out there,"
Bond said. "The Marion County Sheriff's
Office was really on it. They had captains,
majors everyone out there."
The incident began at 12:30 a.m. when
Marion County resident Damian Wells
stopped at a Chevron Station at 5895 W.
Highway 40 outside Ocala and left his car

Longtime Commissioner,


misses meeting due to illness'


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Chiefland City Commissioner Sammy
Cason was hospitalized with breathing
problems last week and was unable to attend
Monday's board meeting.
Cason, who has served as a commissioner
for more than 20 years, wrote a message
to his wife Geneva from his hospital bed
telling her to notify the city that he wouldn't
be present for the meeting.
He apologized for not being able to
attend.
Fire Chief James Harris has remained
in daily contact with Cason's wife. The


latest word is that Cason sat up and read
the newspaper Sunday, but he was unable
to breathe without the assistance of a
ventilator.
Harris said Cason "has gotten a little
better." He said the neuropathy affecting his
legs may be connected to what is happening
with his breathing. Doctors are doing tests.
City officials gathered around him after
the previous commission meeting to pray
for healing. Cason thanked them all with his
customary courtesy.
Cason was once a deputy sheriff. He was
also parts manager for White Ford for many

CFEC lineman critically


injured when truck


becomes energized


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A 29-year-old Chiefland lineman
from Central Florida Electric
Cooperative was critically injured
on the morning of Nov. 16 in Inglis
when he touched a pole truck that
had been accidentally energized by
electricity from a 1,400 volt power
line.
Johnathan Hart, son of John
and Carolyn Hart of Chiefland, was
rushed to Seven Rivers Hospital near
Crystal River and flown from there
to Shands Hospital in Gainesville
where he was treated last week in
the burn unit. FHe was moved to
the Shands rehabilitation facility
Tuesday.
"All the tests are positive. He
is improving. He came through the
surgery better than expected. They
are watching a few things that are a
concern," said Tim Hastings, Co-op
spokesman.
Hastings said Hart was a first
class lineman who had worked for


the co-op for 10 V2 years. He was
working with three other linemen to
set a pole for an existing line when
the power line above arced to the pole
truck, energizing it with electricity.
When Hart touched the truck he was
standing on the ground.
"He made contact as the truck
became energized," Hastings said.
The fact that the power line % as
carrying 14,400 volts doesn't mean
1,400 volts went through llart's
body, according to Hastings. I I said
the Co-op doesn't know how much
electricity passed through Hart.
CFEC has long prided itself on
a strong safety program. Hastings
said an internal investigation is
under way to determine the facts
surrounding the incident.
Hastings said he could not
comment on what exactly wxas
happening with pole truck when it
became energized by electricity.
other than to say the truck xwas
on proximity to the line. He said

Yankeetown celebrates anniversary, annual Seafood Festival


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Yankeetown celebrated its 851'
anniversary last weekend as part
of the 30th Annual Yankeetown
Seafood Festival.
The town was founded in
1923 by Indiana attorney and
entrepreneur A.F. Knotts and was
incorporated as a city in 1925.
A dinner was held at the Isaac
Walton Lodge as part of the low
key anniversary celebration for the
coastal town.
Yankeetown's history is recalled
in a book entitled, "Yankeetown
History and Remembrances Tom
Knotts."
The book notes that
Yankeetown's population was 104
in 1923. The townspeople were
talking about building a school that
year.
In 1924 ground was broken for
a tourist camp and the first power
lines were being added to the town.
Yankeetown Beach was described
as a white sand beach at the mouth
of the Withlacoochee River.
The first baby born in
Yankeetown was Aline Francis
Harris, born in June 1926,
according to the book. The first
Post Office in Yankeetown was
established on July 22, 1926.
A.F. Knotts negotiated with a
phone company to bring phone
service to the town in 1927.
A powerful hurricane hit the city
in 1950. It was apparently the same
hurricane that struck Cedar Key that
year.
The seafood festival attracted
about 100 vendors on Saturday and
Sunday. They sold their wares and
food along tree-lined Riverside
Drive, a quiet neighborhood
bordering the Withlacoochee River.
Visitors were treated to warm,


sunny weather for the afternoon.
Many munched on seafood as they
listened to Cajun Dave perform
music.
Most of the visitors spent the
day walking along shaded Riverside
Drive visiting booths. One of the
booths was that of Nature World
Wildlife Rescue. Visitors could see
wild birds up close.
One barred owl that can no
longer successfully hunt in the wild
was a favorite of visitors. Brian
Lampe held Barney the barred
owl, a bird used for education.
He allowed Barney to perch on a
gloved hand as people admired the
owl from a safe distance. Barney
was accommodating.
The Nature World Wildlife
Rescue pager is (352) 621-5575.
Online the organization can be
found at http://www.natureworld
wildliferescue.org. Nature World
rescued 314 birds last year. One of
the largest animals it rescued was a
Florida snapping turtle weighing 74
pounds.
A few spaces down from the
wildlife rescue booth, 91-year-old
Betty Berger, an author and former
Inglis city commissioner, exhibited
her paintings. Berger's best known
painting depicts the home of Capt.
John Inglis, for whom the town is
named, in the midst of a hurricane.
His home was built on Inglis Island
at the mouth of the Withlacoochee
River.
Inglis, a neighboring community
of Yankeetown, was once a
deep seaport for the shipping of
phosphate to Europe, according to
Berger. Berger said Capt. Inglis's
historic home was slowly destroyed
by vandals who picked apart the
wood porches for firewood. Her
book, "Back Roads," recounts Levy
County's history.

The mayor's position as it currently exists in
Williston would drastically change if the city council
decides to submit a proposed charter amendment to
the voters in March.
City Council members last week postponed a
first reading of an ordinance that would place the
amendment before voters. The delay was due to
Council President Mark Nussel being absent.
The charter amendment would shrink the City
Council from 6 to 5 members and shift responsibility
for administering the police and fire departments
from the mayor to the city manager.
It would take away the mayor's power to
suspend the police and fire chiefs and recommend
their suspension, and would grant authority to
the city manager to administer the police and fire
departments. The city council would hire and fire
the police and fire chiefs. The city manager could
recommend disciplinary action. The chiefs would be
charter officers.
Under the new system, the mayor would become
one of five council members. The mayor would
be chosen by the council members to preside over
meetings and serve as the ceremonial head of the city
at public functions like ribbon cuttings, but most of

the current powers of the mayor would go away because
the position, as it stands now, would no longer exist.
The mayor, as the city charter stands, is elected separately
by voters and has no vote in city council meetings, but has
the right to veto any ordinance adopted by the city council
within 30 days after adoption. The mayor must provide a
reason for the veto. The city council can override the veto
with a four-fifths vote.
The mayor currently approves the appointment of police
officers as nominated by the police chief and budgeted for
by the city council. The mayor can approve the suspension
of any police officers with the recommendation of the
chief; and he gives orders and instructions to the chief in
regard to enforcement of city ordinances. However, police
officers take orders and instructions only from the chief.
Asked if the city manager could fire police officers or
firefighters under the new setup, City Manager Marcus
Collins said he wasn't absolutely certain. City Attorney
Norm Fugate said the police and fire chiefs would likely
hire and fire their own officers, but he conceded those
details were not written into the amendment.
Mayor Gerald Heathcoat said he can't see a reason for
changing the mayor to a non-elected position.
"People should have an opportunity to elect the person
in that seat," he said.
Councilman Michael Shoemaker favored the change,
noting the elimination of an elected mayor would save the
city $3,000, and he said it's a position "that doesn't do
anything."
The way the charter amendment is written, no one will
vote for it, said Councilwoman Debra Jones. She said if the
entire council doesn't support the amendment, it doesn't
have a prayer of passing.
Police Chief Dan Davis, who is retiring in February
and won't be affected by the change, said he is concerned
that the changes would place the power to run the police
department in the hands of the city managers, most of
whom rarely last more than 3 years. He said city managers
have to answer to five members of the city council.
He said an elected mayor is answerable to all the voters
of the city, which Davis believes is in the best interests of
Williston. He said mayors are typically people who have
lived in the city for a long time and have the city's long
term interests at heart.
Davis said he would hate to see a situation where
the police chief gets into big trouble because one of his
officers gave a ticket to a relative of one of the council
members. He said that situation doesn't exist now because
the chief answers to one elected official the mayor. The
city council can fire the chief, but generally the mayor
takes responsibility for working with the chief.
"If the police chief serves at the will of the city manager,
it is precarious," Davis said. "To me I would rather work
with someone who represents all the people."

Injury, from Page 1
the other three linemen
quickly administered
CPR and called 911 for an
ambulance.
The appropriate
government agencies have
been notified. Hastings said
the Co-op will write an
E UNL4Ir extensive report about the
KII incident.
T SY "We are very conscious of
i% N safety here; we're probably
more than dogmatic about
safety," Hastings said.
"It's just an accident at this
point."

Brettel said the council deserved
it.
"They had a lot to recover from. It
was getting past the disappointment of
it all. It had been an emotional blow,

started and progressing forward with a
goal of submitting the EAR report by
2010. The town was 20 years behind
schedule.
The town was selected by USDA/
Rural Development to participate in a
Bronson Visioning Day. The Visioning
Day took place in September. The town
met with state and federal officials,
took them on a tour, and explained
their vision of the future in hopes of
stimulating their interest in awarding
grants to the town in the future.
Town staff worked on
documenting day to day operations,
policies and procedures, disaster
planning and more, which had
previously been nonexistent.

a Community Development Block
Grant. It was the first grant monies the
town had received in eight years.

Williston arrests


Sheriff's arrests


Police nab man Deputies say Chiefland woman sold

with no name prescription drugs while kids in car


He eventually comes up with Juan

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Williston police arrested a man who did not
know his address and was unsure of his name
Nov. 20. About all that was certain about the
man was that he had been drinking alcohol
and was behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.
As result, the man who eventually identified
himself as Juan Lopez was transported to the
Levy County Jail.
A series of events beginning at
approximately 10:30 p.m. Nov. 20 eventually
led to the demise of Lopez. That is when
Williston police officers initially approached
a white Ford pickup parked in the 500 block
of S.E. 5th Terrace. A complaint of loud music
had been reported, and officers discovered
that the music was coming from the pickup.
A police report on the incident also states that
they observed several Hispanic males standing
outside the pickup. Among them was Lopez,
and he was drinking a bottle of beer.
Officers asked those around the vehicle to
turn the music down, which they did.
Later, though, another complaint was called
in, and, upon responding, officers discovered
the truck going south in the 500 block of S.E.
5'" Terrace with the defendant driving. Officers
stated in their report that the vehicle was
partially on the dirt roadway and partially in
the grass, and not moving in a straight line.
Officers stated in their report that the driver
of the vehicle, Lopez, appeared to be almost
asleep, with his eyes only "partially open" and
"his head weaving about on his neck."
Officers had Lopez exit the vehicle, and he
almost fell to the ground as he did so. A strong
odor of alcohol was noticeable on the driver's
breath, officers included in their report.
The driver was initially placed under arrest
for not having a valid driver's license. He was
transported to the Williston Police Department,
where he refused a breathalyzer test.

Humane Society taking applications for low cost spay/neuter


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Levy County Humane Society has
received a $20,000 state grant to provide low
income residents with low cost spay and neuter
of pet cats and dogs.
Humane Society officials said the grant also
provides for spay/neuter of feral cats, provided
there is a colony of cats that has a caretaker
feeding them. This portion of the grant is
available to anyone regardless of income.
For more information call 352-486-5705.
You will get an answering machine, but the call
will be returned. Applications can be picked up
at Chiefland Animal Hospital in north Chiefland


or at Levy County Animal Services at the Levy
County Landfill east of Bronson.
Low income residents who wish to have
their pet cats or dogs spayed will be required
to pay $5 for the service, which is extremely
low cost. To qualify, the person must be able
to prove they are low income by providing
documentation of food stamps, Medicaid or
some other form of identification.
The Humane Society has already had good
success with the program. Seventy-six animals
have been spayed or neutered in two months
and 40 people have made appointments. People
are hearing about the program through word of
mouth.
"People have been willing to work with us.


The people of Levy County really want this,"
Flickinger said.
The sterilizations are being performed by
Dr. Dee Esler of Chiefland Animal Hospital.
She is the medical director for the Humane
Society. She also volunteers her time every
week to examine the animals housed at Levy
County Animal Services.
For those residents who qualify for the
grant-related spay and neuter services, Dr. Esler
will also give the animal a rabies shot. For cats,
she will give an ear mite treatment.
The Humane Society will trap the feral cats
free of charge to spay and neuter them, but the
grant requires that the colony have a human
caretaker because the sterilized cats will be


Family


returned to the same location to live out their
lives.
Lee Flickinger, who is in charge of the
grant program, said the Humane Society has
run into unusual situations, such as a disabled
woman with a house full of cats. The Humane
Society has sterilized 23 of the cats and plans
to continue the process until all the cats are
spayed or neutered.
The grant provides $15,000 for low cost
spay/neuter of pet cats and dogs plus $5,000 for
spay and neuter of feral cats.
This is the second state grant the Humane
Society has received. It was awarded a similar
grant several years ago. Money for the grant
comes from the sale of special license plates.

The story is about 8-year-old Virginia
O'Hanlan. Christmas was coming and all
was right with the world for Virginia, until
her friends mischievously filled her in on
the "facts" about Old Saint Nick.
Who can tell her the truth? Not her father,
a doctor who is always fighting against old
world cures. Not her teacher, who is already
fed up with Christmas, even though it has
not arrived. So, Virginia writes a letter to
the editor of The New York Sun. Her father
always said, "If you see it in the Sun, it's
so." Virginia's letter falls into the hands of
Francis P. Church, a veteran editorial writer.

years.
The Florida League of
Cities honored him last year
with a plaque recognizing
his more than 20 years of
service as a Chiefland city
commissioner.
In other business,
commissioners postponed
adopting a resolution that
would ask the Florida
Legislature to name U.S.
19 at Park Avenue for the
late Sgt. Karl A. Campbell,
a soldier killed in the
Afghanistan war.
Deputy Clerk
Mary Ellzey said the
Florida Department of
Transportation indicated
there was no place at the
intersection where a sign
could be erected honoring
Campbell.
Commissioners heaped
praise upon City Police
Chief Robert Douglas
and Commissioner Teresa
Barron for organizing the
first annual Veterans Day
Parade. The parade featured
more than 60 units.
"Did you notice; just
about everybody stood up
when the flag went by,"
Douglas noted.
The parade is scheduled
to be rotated to another city
next year. Douglas said he
plans to call a meeting of
representatives of all the
cities to talk about the next
parade. His tentative plan is
to draw a city's name from
a hat to decide which city
gets the parade next year.
Douglas and Barron said
the plan to meet on Dec. 2
to talk about the parade and
figure out what went well
and what didn't. A date for
the meeting of all the cities
has not been selected.


Douglas and Barron said
they will provide the next
city with the information
and lessons they learned
in organizing the Nov. 13
parade. Barron has a list of
people she contacted about
participating.
Commissioners agreed
to meet after their next
board meeting on Dec. 13
for a closed door strategy
session dealing with union
negotiations.
Florida law allows
"shade meetings" to take
place out of the public eye
to allow city officials to
talk strategy when dealing
with union contract issues.
The city is negotiating
with the Police Benevolent
Association that represents
city police officers.
Douglas said he has hired
Justin Douglas of Bronson
as his newest police officer.
Douglas, who is no relation
to the police chief, is a 7-
year veteran of the U.S.
Coast Guard and served
as a correctional officer at
the Alachua County Jail.
He wants to get into law
enforcement.
Chief Douglas said his
namesake was selected
from among 100 applicants.
A panel of city police and
sheriff's office deputies
recommended Justin
Douglas.
Commissioner Frank
Buie, a World War II
veteran who participated
in the Nov. 13 parade, said
he believes the late Vance
Beauchamp should be
recognized in the same way
as Campbell.
Buie said Beauchamp
was a war hero in World
War II who later worked

"We'd like to get him
some type of recognition,"
Buie said.
Commissioners took
no action on Buie's
suggestion.
On a different matter,
Barron said a county-
appointed committee
selected to look at the
Mizzel Hodges fire report
wants to go back to the
county commission to
ask if newly elected
commissioners still want
the committee to continue
working.
The Mizzel Hodges
report looked at how the
county's fire services could
be improved. The county
commission currently
levies a fire assessment tax
and distributes the money
to about 13 fire departments
in Levy County, most of
them volunteer.

invite you to stop by sometime and count the squares.


An early Thanksgiving


for Log Cabin Quilters


Ray Franks of the "Can't Hardly Play
Boys" entertains guests at the Levy
County Quilt Museum before the big
meal.


The Log Cabin Quilters and many
of our friends met Nov. 18 for an early
Thanksgiving dinner. The weather was so
wonderful that many people were outside in
chairs and the porch swing was in full use.
Ray Franks and the "Can't Hardly Play
Boys" were here and everyone enjoyed their
Gospel and Bluegrass music. They will
also be here Dec. 4-5 for our Quilt Show.
I want to thank all the ladies who helped
Thursday. It takes everyone to help when
we have a great day like this.
Thanksgiving dinner was plenty
of turkey, dressing and gravy, squash
casserole, green beans with potatoes, onion
casserole, mustard greens, cheese and
macaroni, sweet potato casserole, butter
beans, slaw, potato salad, apple salad,
vegetable slices, pumpkin bars, lemon pie,
pumpkin pie, peach cobbler, chocolate cake,
blueberry cobbler, vanilla cake and much
more than we could eat.
The Log Cabin Quilters will not meet

Finding life's true treasure


t's my Mom's fault we were so poor
growing up. After all, everybody knew
there was a pot of gold at the end of
a rainbow. She didn't even seem to
care! I remember pleading with her every
rainy day to help us find it until one time
she finally put us in the car. She even let me
ride shotgun. I remember white knuckling
my little plastic shovel like a crazed elf
shouting, "Faster! Faster! Faster!" But she
fooled around doing the speed limit until
it disappeared into the horizon. I've never
been quite able to forgive her.
I guess there's always been something
in me fascinated by the allure of stumbling


But Anyway...


upon great treasure. (According to recent with
Lotto sales I am not alone!) I'm a garage
sale junkie of the worst sort. My wife has to practically
snatch the wheel from me every time I see a pile of junk
set out on someone's curb. She just doesn't understand.
There could be a perfectly good piece of wood in that
heap I could use to shelve my other trinkets!
It was in this spirit I decided to play to the fancies
of my two offspring one Thanksgiving break. From my
computer I printed off an authentic genuine imitation
replica of the Sheffield Family Treasure Map. It came
complete with a picture of an old pirate ship, and the
first clue typed in official @Ib (ntilislj) ext. Of course,
I burned the edges and wrinkled it up some before I let
them find it.
You should've seen their eyes light up. My four
year old Joshua went immediately for his plastic sword.
"That's my boy," I gloated. My wife rolled her eyes.
The next few days came fast and furious, and with
more intrigue and treachery than I dare disclose. Let
me say for the record, "Some first cousins can't be
trusted." The map itself came up stolen the very first
night! However my nine year old girl Kailey, who'd long
since memorized it, continued the hunt. Each clue led
to another. Some came by e-mail, some by phone, and
some were hidden behind a couch or beneath a piece of
flea market yard art. Each came by way of solving a new
riddle, and each gave a key to the final resting place of
the treasure.
Finally, as the sun was setting on the second day, the
final clue was given and the mystery began to unravel.


G


The kids bolted for the shed, their eyes
glazed and wild. 1 noticed a string of
slobber dangling frbm the boy's mouth. I
got out of the way!
Dirt flew furiously from behind
that shed and soon I heard a metallic
clank. The kids dove in and snatched
out a beautiful little treasure box. They
snatched open the lid and stood there
in shock as they pulled out its only
contents; a little New Testament.
Kailey's left eye started twitching.
Alertly, I kicked the shovels out of her
reach. "Wait, now," I stuttered, "Read
the verse 1 marked." She ripped it open


uy Sheffield and read the following verses the Apostle
Paul had shared about finding true
treasure. (I want them to be encouraged and knit together
by strong ties of love. I want them to have complete
confidence that they understand God's mysterious
plan, which is Christ Himself In Him lie hidden all the
treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:2-3
NLT).
Unfortunately, Kailey wasn't paying attention. She
kept eye balling that shovel like she was about to push me
in that hole and cover me up. "Honey, now keep reading,"
I defended, "There's more."
Then she noticed a clue handwritten on the page. She
tore away with the boy at her heals. Around front, deep
beneath a pile of leaves, they discovered a much larger
box. It contained gold and silver coins made of chocolate,
match box cars, plastic beads, and an assortment of other
dollar store trinkets. They leapt about weeping great
tears of joy! There were hugs and kisses all around. Even
my wife joined the fun. It had turned out to be a truly
wonderful Thanksgiving.
But anyway- Christmas is on the horizon again. (Talk
about a day when a Treasure was found!) It's all got me to
thinking how important it is I help the kids realize which
box the True Treasure was really in that day. It shouldn't
be too hard. One of them is now littered with broken
trinkets and empty wrappers. The other still reveals the
Pearl of a great price.

An old-fashioned



cane grinding

W-. M WStory and photos by Rick Burnham
S-= ."Editor


Old Town resident Leo Blackwood skims runoff off the top of the first batch of
sugar cane syrup to be made by the Suwannee River Shriners Club.
I -sf~j ..................r ~ I1ap~aa q --Jf~ .- ~


There was a time. long before the sugar cane industry put sacks of sugar in
everyone's cupboard, when the single source of sweetness for local families was
sugar cane syrup.
Times have changed the number of products on the market designed to sweeten
the pot are far too numerous to mention.
But, thanks to a robust group of old timers, who learned the craft from their
own families long ago, sugar cane syrup still holds a place of honor in many local
kitchens.
They gathered this week at the Suwannee River Shrine Club, just off State Road
26 in Fanning Springs, for their annual Cane Grinding Week, a celebration of the art
and a chance for visitors to catch a glimpse of a key aspect of southern life.
The activities, which will continue through Friday, included a Turkey Shoot (the
last shoot will be held from 1-3 p.m. Thanksgiving Day), lunches served on the back
porch, a chicken and dumpling dinner, a Thanksgiving dinner, craft sales, yard sales,
bake sales and raffles.
Each day, men took sugar cane stalks from a nearby field and pushed them
through a machine that ground out the juice. The juice was filtered and then put into
a large kiln, which boiled the water out and cleansed the product.
Once the syrup had cooked about three-and-a-half to four
hours it was bottled and sold for $8 per bottle. The men also
bottled sugar cane juice for $8 per gallon.
Lloyd Landrum, of Old Town, learned how to cook sugar
S cane syrup from his father. Landrum stood beside his brother-
in-law, Leo Blackwood, and watched the first batch of 2010
cook inside the giant kiln. Every year produces a different sugar
content, he said. And every batch is different.
"Just when you think you have it figured out, you find out
Differentt" Landrum said. "I think the sugar content in this
year's batch is a little higher."
Hilton Jones, pushing stalks of sugar cane through the
-,. ..' grinder, said sugar cane was more popular when people lived
.. off the land.
"They still do," John Bartin countered. "They just don't
realize it."
"They will realize it, when it is all gone," Jones replied.
Similar celebrations of the time-honored process of cooking sugar cane syrup are
ongoing all over North Florida, the men said.

Stopping to


say thanks

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I picked my dad up from Orlando International
Airport the other day, and, driving back through
that bulging metropolis, I was immediately
thankful that I live in an area mostly free of the
congestion of the big city life.
Driving back up here to God's country with him,
I began to realize there are many other things to be
thankful for at this time of the year.
Dad is a low-key kind of guy. Smiles and jokes and
says kind and thoughtful things to friends and strangers
alike. Other than discussions about Barack Obama, there
is not much that gets him riled up. I am not as easy-
going as he is, but I do believe I got a little bit of his
low-key style.
Others are not quite as lucky, and when I look at
them, I am immediately thankful that I am not saddled
with an ego as big as a house, and forced to go through
life with a spiteful, hateful, bulldog attitude toward
others. I really am. What a ball and chain that must be.
As we drove north, first on the turnpike and later on
1-75, dad began to tell me about a medication the doctors
previously had him on to combat one of a plethora of
health problems old age has brought for him. The pills
had him seeing things literally seeing people inside his
home. Ghosts. Halfa dozen times, he said, there were
suddenly people standing there whom he had never seen.
When he would confront them, they would generally
just disappear. Poof. Just like that.
Dad stopped taking those pills, and the illusions went
away, just as quickly as they had begun.
Other people see things and hear things without the
aid of special medication. Possibilities materialize in
their heads to the point that paranoia eventually takes
charge. They are being watched. By their neighbors. By
the government. Followed. Conspiracies abound. They
lose things and blame others for taking them. What a
lonely existence that must be. I am truly thankful the
good Lord did not see fit to burden me with that. I truly
am.
It appeared to me, looking at my father in the
passenger seat of my truck, that old age has taken its toll
on him, size-wise. Dad, just like his father had before
him, grew to the towering height of 5'6". Now, at age
86, he appears to be more like 5'4". At 5'6" and three
quarters, I towered over everyone in my family. But one
day, if I am lucky enough to get that old, I will probably
end up at around 5'4" (and three quarters.) Thanks a lot
Dad.
Between Orlando and Gainesville, Dad smoked 43
cigarettes. He has always smoked. As long as I can
remember, he was either finishing a cigarette or lighting
another. I too smoked for a while, but gave it up when
the price of a pack began to rise and my ability to jog
to the mailbox was lessened by my decreasing lung
capacity.
That was the easy addiction to quit. Alcohol was
much more difficult. But, as I sit here typing today, I am
thankful that neither have a grip on me like they do for

Sometimes I wonder what it would have been like
to have met Jesus Christ face to face in Biblical
times and to have followed him, watched him
speak, and observed the miracles he performed.
Being in his presence would have been a powerful, life-
changing experience.
It is possible even today to experience the Lord
Jesus Christ through his teachings in the New Testament
and through prayer. You can experience Christ through
prayer alone, or in groups of like-minded people, or in
Christian churches. Living in the way Christ taught us to
live is another way to experience his presence, coupled
with regular prayer.
His most powerful sermon was given on a
mountaintop somewhere in Galilee. His disciples,
Matthew and Luke, recounted The Beatitudes in the
books they wrote in the Bible. The Beatitudes, known
as the Sermon on the Mount, speak to the importance of
integrity in one's thoughts, words, actions and beliefs.
The Beatitudes are an eloquently expressed
prescription for salvation. They describe the life human
beings should try to lead. Jesus offered The Beatitudes
to anyone with the ability to hear and comprehend the
meaning of his words, not just for preachers and priests.
Following his teachings in The Beatitudes, and
forsaking greed and selfishness, would amount to living
our lives as God and Jesus intended, the Holy Life. It's
a tall order. Most of us fall well short of the behavior
Jesus set forth in The Beatitudes.
The spiritually uplifting power of Jesus' words in
this God-inspired sermon on the mountaintop has not
diminished with time. If you fear what people might

think of you for becoming a true believer in Jesus, these
words are not for you. They are much too powerful.
In The Beatitudes, Jesus left us with an enormously
inspiring prayer that Christians call the Lord's Prayer.
Before giving his followers this prayer, Jesus cautioned
his followers not to use vain repetitions as the heathen
do, for they believe that the longer the prayer, the more
God will love them. He said don't be like the heathens,
for the Father God knows what you have need of before
you ask him.
Rather pray in this manner, Jesus said:
"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy
name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is
in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Andforgive us our debts, as weforgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from
evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the powei; and the
glory, for ever Amen.
Some churches have a slightly different version of
the prayer, but the meaning is the same. Some high
school football and basketball coaches recite the prayer
with their players before or after games because it
teaches spirituality, unity of purpose, respect for God
and forgiveness, the basic framework for believers to
follow.
Coach Jim O'Neal, varsity football coach at
Chiefland High School, gathers his players, the
cheerleaders and assistant"coaches togethefafter every
game to recite the Lord's-Payer with him. They link
themselves together in a circle, arm in arm. He recites
a verse of the prayer. They respond as one, repeating it
after him. The power of the moment can give you goose
bumps. The spirituality radiating from the prayer circle
of these young high school athletes and their coaches is
beyond measure.
An invisible spiritual presence can be felt as the
prayer emanates from the group. It is the presence of
holiness, a blessing on all those who partake of the
Lord's Prayer. It is spiritual food for those who are in
need of a blessing. Most of us are in need.
In The Beatitudes, Jesus speaks of the need to focus
not on treasures of the earth that will fade and rust with
time, but urges his followers to store spiritual treasurers
that are not subject to physical decay, rust or ruin by
moths. The spiritual treasure he speaks of is available
anyone to read or hear his words and teachings and live
accordingly.
Jesus talks about the problems he sees when people
pretend to be spiritual but live their life in a different
way. He views their false righteousness as hypocrisy. It
is not enough to live within the laws regulating killing,
adultery, divorce, retribution and other bad behavior.
Jesus urges people to cleanse their thoughts, words and
deeds. He said this will allow them to live a life of peace
rather than of violence and injustice.
My suspicion is that The Beatitudes are often viewed
as a lofty goal but not something the average person
can attain in their lifetime. That may indeed be the case
for many people, me included. It is difficult to live a
completely spiritual life, and yet that is exactly what
Jesus tells us to do in The Beatitudes.
Jesus preached what many thought then was a radical
philosophy. It really wasn't. ---
Jesus referred to himsnemfas being "One with the
Father." He was saying that he and God were in perfect
union. They were one in purpose and spirituality. They
were completely unified. Their mission was the same.
When I write about Jesus, I often remind people about
this fact because it is of great importance.
When Jesus gave his sermons, or simply spoke in
public, it was God speaking through him. His words
were God's words. They are recorded in the New
Testament. Jesus was the most advanced spiritual
teacher ever to walk the earth. God used him as the
perfect messenger. His life and teachings were of God.
He was the absolute perfect role model for all of us to
follow. There was none like him before or after. He was
the promised Messiah, though many of the people from
his own culture, the Jews, rejected him out of ignorance.
Jesus criticized the religious practices of the Jews
because he knew their practices to some extent were
based on political and financial power rather than
focusing on spirituality. He didn't want those practices
to take place in God's House. the church. The Jews
didn't like his teachings. They could not believe anyone

Deficit reduction


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate
A another deficit reduction commission has
now made its recommendations. My own
recommendation for dealing with deficits
would include stopping the appointment of deficit
reduction commissions.
It is not the amount of money that these
commissions cost that is the issue. It is the escape
hatch that they provide for big-spending politicians.
Do you go ahead and spend the rent money and the
food money-- and then ask somebody else to tell you
how to escape the consequences?
If President Obama or the Congress were serious
about keeping the deficit down, they could have had
this commission's recommendations before they spent *
hundreds of billions of dollars, handing out goodies
hither and yon to their pet constituencies.
I don't know why people agree to serve on these
bipartisan commissions, which save the political
hides of the big spenders after they have run up huge
deficits. Back in the 1950s, there was a saying: "If you didn't invite me to the take-off,
don't invite me to the crash landing."
Deficit commissions make it politically possible to spend money first and get
somebody else to recommend raising taxes later. They are a virtual guarantee of never-
ending increases in both spending and taxes.
Why provide political cover? Leave the big spenders out there naked in front of the
voters! Either the elected officials will change their ways or the voters can change the
officials they elect.
There is no special information or wisdom available to unelected deficit commissions
that is not available to elected officials. Nor are they more far-seeing than politicians.
Cutting defense spending to save money? That is one of the oldest moves in the
liberal play book. Some soldiers may pay with their lives for this, but that could be years
from now-- and after the next election, which is as far as most politicians think.


The biggest immediate tax issue is whether the Bush tax cuts will be extended for
everyone. Here, as elsewhere in politics, sheer hogwash reigns supreme.
Nancy Pelosi claims that the "tax cuts for the rich" cannot be continued because it
would be "too costly." Although former Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey says,
"Demagoguery beats data" in politics, here are some data anyway.
The first big cut in income taxes came in the 1920s, at the urging of Secretary of the
Treasury Andrew Mellon. He argued that a reduction of the tax rates would increase the
tax revenues. What actually happened?
In 1920, when the top tax rate was 73 percent, for people making over $100,000
a year, the federal government collected just over $700 million in income taxes-- and
30 percent of that was paid by people making over $100,000. After a series of tax cuts
brought the top rate down to 24 percent, the federal government collected more than a
billion dollars in income tax revenue-- and people making over $100,000 a year now
paid 65 percent of the taxes.
How could that be? The answer is simple: People behave differently when tax
rates are high as compared to when they are low. With low tax rates, they take their
money out of tax shelters and put it to work in the economy, benefitting themselves, the
economy and government, which collects more money in taxes because incomes rise.
High tax rates which very few people are actually paying, because of tax shelters, do
not bring in as much revenue as lower tax rates that people are paying. It was much the
same story after tax cuts during the Kennedy administration, the Reagan administration
and the Bush Administration.
The New York Times reported in 2006: "An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues
from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget deficit this
year."
Expectations are in the eyes of the beholder-- and in the rhetoric of the demagogues.
If class warfare is more important to some politicians than collecting more revenue when
there is a deficit, then let the voters know that.
And spare us so-called "deficit reduction commissions."

Dude, where's my Obamacare waiver?


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

More than one million
Americans have escaped
the clutches of the
Democrats' destructive
federal health care law. Lucky
them. Their employers and labor
representatives wisely applied for
Obamacare waivers earlier this fall and
got out while the getting was good.
Now, it's time for Congress to create a
permanent escape hatch for the rest of
us. Repeal is the ultimate waiver.
As you'll recall, President Obama
promised repeatedly that if Americans
liked their health insurance plan,
they could keep it. "Nobody is


talking about taking that away from
you," the cajoler-in-chief assured. What he failed
to communicate to low-wage and part-time workers
across the country is that they could keep their plans
-- only if their companies begged hard enough for
exemptions from Obamacare's private insurance-killing
regulations.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services website, at least 111 waivers have
now been granted to companies, unions and other
organizations of all sizes who offer affordable health
insurance or prescription drug coverage with limited
benefits. Obamacare architects sought to eliminate
those low-cost plans under the guise of controlling
insurer spending on executive salaries and marketing.
It's all about control. If central planners can't dictate
what health benefits qualify as "good," what plans
qualify as "affordable" and how health care dollars
are best spent, then nobody can. The ultimate goal, of
course: precipitating a massive shift from private to
government insurance.
McDonald's, Olive Garden, Red Lobster and Jack
in the Box are among the large, headline-garnering
employers who received the temporary waivers. But
perhaps the most politically noteworthy beneficiaries of
the HHS waiver program: Big Labor.
The Service Employees Benefit Fund, which
insures a total of 12,000 SEIU health care workers in
upstate New York, secured its Obamacare exemption in
October. The Local 25 SEIU Welfare Fund in Chicago
also nabbed a waiver for 31,000 of its enrollees. SEIU,
of course, was one of Obamacare's loudest and biggest
spending proponents. The waivers come on top of the
massive sweetheart deal that SEIU and other unions cut
with the Obama administration to exempt them from
the health care mandate's onerous "Cadillac tax" on
high-cost health care plans until 2018.
Other unions who won protection from Obamacare:
-- United Food and Commercial Workers Allied
Trade Health and Welfare Trust Fund
-- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
Union No. 915
-- Asbestos Workers Local 53 Welfare Fund
-- Employees Security Fund
-- Plumbers and Pipefitters Local 123 Welfare Fund
-- United Food and Commercial Workers Local 227


-- United Food and Commercial
Workers Local 455 (Maximus)
-- United Food and Commercial
Workers Local 1262
-- Musicians Health Fund Local 802
-- Hospitality Benefit Fund Local 17
-- Transport Workers Union
-- United Federation of Teachers
Welfare Fund
-- International Union of Painters
and Allied Trades (AFL-CIO)
-- Plus two organizations
that appear to be chapters of the
International Longshoremen's
Association (ILA)
Several of these labor organizations
did not respond to requests for
comment about their waivers. But Jay
Blumenthal, financial vice president of


the Local 802 Musicians Health Fund
in New York, did explain to me: "We got grandfathered
in" (his description for getting a pass) because "things
were moving so fast" and "we need time now to
prepare for the law." In other words: Policy cramdowns
first, political fixes later. A supporter of Obamacare,
Blumenthal told me he "sees no irony, no," in unions
supporting the very health care "reform" from which
they are now seeking relief.
Chris Rodriguez, director of human resources at
Fowler Packing Company in California's San Joaquin
Valley, sees things a little differently. Fowler pursued
an HHS waiver because their low-wage agricultural
workers would have lost the basic coverage his
company has voluntarily offered for years. "We take
care of our employees, and we warned (health care
officials that) if they imposed this, large numbers of
workers would lose access to affordable coverage," he
told me. Rodriguez said he's grateful the firm won a
waiver, but he did not lose sight of the fact that the very
policies passed to increase health insurance access are
having the opposite effect: "That's our government at
work."
Indeed, some prominent government officials who
lobbied hardest for Obamacare are now also joining
waiver-mania -- including liberal Democratic Sen.
Ron Wyden, who has been pushing for an individual
mandate exemption for his state of Oregon, and
Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, who is
pushing to waive Obamacare's burdensome 1099
reporting requirements of small businesses.
Fearful of retribution by HHS Secretary and chief
inquisitor Kathleen Sebelius, who has threatened
companies speaking out about Obamacare's perverse
consequences, many business owners who obtained
waivers refused to talk to me on the record. One said
tersely: "We did what we had to do to survive."
A new House GOP majority now has the chance
to protect the rest of America from this regulatory
monstrosity. We want out.

Measuring effectiveness of springs protection no easy task


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Four county planners and a state official who helped
develop spring protection regulations conceded last week
that it is difficult to judge the effectiveness of springs
regulations until years after planners draft them and
elected officials adopt the rules.
When regulations are implemented there is no
immediate effect on springs that flow into rivers and
estuaries. They said it could take 10 to 15 years before
planners know with any certainty whether the regulations
are reducing the amount of impurities in groundwater
before it emerges from the springs.
The planners said they rely on water management
districts to tell them if the planning regulations are having
their intended effect. Planners are not scientists. They
consult with scientists in developing the regulations, but
their job as planners is not to monitor water quality.
Springs-related regulations are often directed at
controlling land uses within the springshed, the land area
around springs. As rainfall and stormwater filters through
the soils, the water enters the groundwater and flows to
the springs. It sometimes takes years for water to reach
a spring vent.
Wakulla County has been protecting its springs for 16
years and the nitrate level in Wakulla Springs is about
6.7 millgrams per liter, only slightly lower than it was
originally. The planners said that fact doesn't mean the
regulations aren't working. The nitrate levels would
probably be higher without regulations.
"If you didn't have regulations, how much worse
would you be," said Mike Castine, a planner with the


.i T .' .
County and city officials sit at tables listening to
Craig Diamond, state planning director for the
Florida Department of Community Affairs, explain
the basics of springs planning at a joint meeting
of the Fanning & Manatee Springs Working Group
and Santa Fe Working Group on Nov. 18.
Alachua County comprehensive planning division.
The planners were Castine, Marion County Planning
Manager Bill Kinser, Citrus County Planning Director
Kevin Smith and Lake County Planning Director Brian
Sheahan, along with Craig Diamond, state planning
director for the Florida Department of Community
Affairs.
They were part of a joint meeting of the Fanning &
Manatee Springs Working Group and Santa Fe Working
Group. Spring working groups meet to discuss how best
to protect the state's springs.
On a related subject, the planners were asked about
farm fertilizers.
Farm fertilizers are often blamed for high nitrate levels
in Manatee Springs and Fanning Springs, but Sheahan
said local governments have "little ability" to regulate
farming. He said farming is protected by the state Right
to Farm Act.


Sheahan said Lake County recognizes the importance
of farming as an industry and tries to work with farmers.
"You have to get the stakeholders to work with
farmers," he said.
Florida Department of Environmental Regulation
official Terry Hansen said DEP also recognizes the
importance of farming and the Right to Farm Act and
plans to work with farmers to implement best management
practices. The goal is to use BMP's to reduce the amount
of nutrients leaching into the groundwater from farms.
Groundwater flows to the springs.
Hansen said best management practices must be
implemented and enforced to determine their effectiveness.
He said if the BMPs fail, the state will implement Total
Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) to reduce the flow of
nutrients, such as nitrates, into the state's drinking water
and springs.
Manatee and Fanning Springs show signs of nitrate
pollution. Algae is growing on the spring floor.

Chiefland celebrates banner volleyball year


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Injust about any other scenario imaginable,
a 14-4 season would be considered a very
good year. And so it was for the Chiefland
High School volleyball team.
Trouble was, the four losses came to the
two teams at the top of the District 5-2A
standings: St. Francis and P.K. Yonge. And
with the current Florida high school playoff
format in which only two teams from
each district advance further in the playoffs
- that meant Chiefland fell just short of the
mark needed to advance, despite winning 78
percent of its games.
Still, it was all smiles at the annual Lady
Indians volleyball awards banquet, held
Nov. 15 in the school cafeteria. Head Coach
Tammy Arrington and a host of school
officials got the 2010 team together one last
time to talk about a very successful year and a
bright future. Only four of the varsity team's
13 players were seniors Kaylin Hastings,
Madison Rutkowski, Maegan Watkins and
Kodie Meeks.
"The varsity team did a really good job
this year," Arrington told the crowd. "We
only lost four games this year twice to St.
Francis, who most of you know they are very
competitive, and we lost twice to P.K. Yonge,


The 2010 Chiefland Volleyball team includes (front row, I-r) T.J. Arrington,
Katie Warren, Hailey Gerhard, Meagan Morgan, Kodie Meeks, Maegan Wat-
kins, Caitlyn Fuller, Head Coach Tammy Arrington, (back row, I-r) Madison
Rutkowski, Kaylin Hastings, Mychayla Franklin, Taylore Fuller, Maria McGee
and Shelby Mills.


who is also very competitive."
Arrington told the crowd that after
Chiefland's final game, against St. Francis in
the district playoffs, coaches and parents came
up to her to comment on the improvement of
the Chiefland squad.
"They were saying things like 'We
cannot believe the difference in your team.


They have really improved,'" Arrington said.
"So coming from their coaches and parents, I
took that as a compliment."
This year's varsity squad included
Kaylin Hastings, Maegan Watkins, Madison
Rutkowski, Kodie Meeks, Shelby Mills,
Meagan Morgan, Taylore Fuller, Caitlyn
Fuller, Hailey Gerhard, Maria McGee, T.J.


Arrington, Mychalya Franklin and Katie
Warren.
After presenting players from both the
varsity and junior varsity with certificates,
Arrington went on to present a handful of
special awards to players who were selected
by their peers. Those included the "Most
Likely To Pick Me Up When Things Were
Tough Award" given to Maria McGee on the
varsity, and Brittany Gillam on the junior
varsity.
"These were the girls who always had a
kind thing to say when things were not going
well," the coach said. "When you are in that
game and things are just not going your way,
it is tough. It is wonderful when you are
winning and all, but when you are not, it is
really hard. It is really hard to pick yourself
up, and these were the two girls who always
picked us up."
The "Best Team Spirit Award" went
to Mychayla Franklin on the varsity and
Marjorie Cothron on the junior varsity.
"They were always cheering, chanting,"
Arrington said. "Always the one to go to the
middle and slap everybody on the bootie."
The "Most Improved Award" went to
Hailey Gerhard on the varsity and Eliza
Renaud on the junior varsity.
The "Most Hustle Award" went to
Gerhardt and Gillam.


McCall receives football chair for his use at home games


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Retired Chiefland High School Football Coach and
Principal C. Doyle McCall, 82 is a legend at Chiefland High
School after being associated with the school for 58 years,
but one more token of community respect for McCall was
added Nov. 19 at the homecoming game.
McCall, who brings a lawn chair to every game and
sits on the paved track surrounding the field, was given
a surprise gift by CHS Principal Bill Tovin and two of
McCall's former football players, Jay Mac Matthews and
former CHS Track Coach Wendell Corbin.
The three men presented McCall with a comfortable
folding chair for McCall to use during home football
games. The chair is larger and more stable than the small
lawn chair McCall uses. He said he appreciated the gift.
The school will bring it to every game for his use, Tovin
said.
Chiefland High School's football field is named for
McCall. It was dedicated to him several years ago. Last
year his name was painted on the brick wall at the west
end of the field above the community booster signs. The
stadium is named for the late Wayne Pridgeon who died
from an injury in a CHS football game.

Tournament, from Page 20


Former CHS Principal and Coach C. Doyle McCall
is presented a special chair by two of his former
football players, Jay Mac Matthews on the left
and retired Coach Wendell Corbin on the right.
When McCall came to work at CHS in 1952, he said
games were played on a field in the south part of town.
CHS has no football field. He approached farmer Mont
Clyatt about donating land adjoining the CHS campus for


afield.
"I told Mont Clyatt what the situation was. He said,
"Move the fence and don't worry about it'," McCall
recalled. The first CHS football field, on Clyatt's field, was
located where the multi-purpose building, cafeteria and one
classroom building stand today.
When that field was covered by new school buildings,
McCall said a piece of land next door, on the site of a large
sinkhole, was identified as the place where a new football
field would be constructed. He said mature live oak trees
were growing in the large sinkhole.
"We had live oak trees in there as big as you can see,"
he said.
He said the late Luther White, who owned a road
construction company and was expanding U.S. 19 through
Chiefland, used pieces of concrete and dirt from the
construction project to fill the sinkhole. The football field
was seeded with grass from Florida Field at the University
of Florida. McCall said the grass was "verticut" at Florida
Field and disked into the ground at the Chiefland site.
He said Luther White, Etter Usher and Vance Beauchamp
were among the big supporters that helped build the football
stadium in a year's time.
"Between the football season of 1963 and the football
season of 1964 this field came into being," he said.


Indian mainstay on both ends of the court, was
Chiefland's primary rebounder. He was in heavy traffic
against a taller and stockier Newberry team.
Boyd said he was happy with the Cedar Key win,
but wasn't satisfied with the 7 for 34 shooting effort
in the first half.
"We missed so many shots that were up close," he
said.
Cedar Key was led by Sills with 7 points and Zach
Anderson with 6 against Chiefland.
Boyd said his strategy of using freshman Deshawn
Roland to apply relentless defensive pressure to Cedar
Key's Sills, a triple threat to score inside and outside,
as well as to drive the ball to the hoop, apparently was
effective.
"I think he was sucking air by the fourth quarter,"
Boyd said.
Boyd said his team had just three practices before
the tournament. That fact along with the missing
starters, some of whom are the ball handlers on the
team, made it difficult for his offense to function
effectively.
"The game was fast for almost everyone out there,"
he said.
When and if the suspended and ineligible players
return to the team and begin practicing and playing
together, Boyd believes the team's fortunes could
improve, but for now, he believes the existing team
will improve as it gets more practice and playing time
together.

that criticized their religious practices was the promised
Messiah. I am certain the Rabbis of the time viewed
him as a threat to their religious authority rather than
as God's messenger. They never dreamed the Messiah
would bring a message that called for reform in the way
they worshiped.
Jesus' message at the time, and even now, is
rather radical to some, because it calls upon human
beings to clean up their act and forsake the worship
of money, gold, diamonds and political power. It calls
for forgiveness. Jesus demands that we worship God
and live in a way that would be pleasing in God's eyes.
That's a very tall order. Take a look in the mirror and be
realistic with yourself. How much of what you think, do
and say is completely pleasing in the eyes of Jesus and
God?
As I have said in all my columns regarding
religion, I have never claimed to be a paragon of
virtue. Forgiveness is the most difficult teaching of


Jesus to implement in my life. Too many people view
forgiveness as weakness. If someone wrongs you,
and you turn the other cheek, as Jesus taught, your
persecutors probably will view you as a fool. It is their
folly if they do so.
The Beatitudes describe the perfect life and how to
life it, and what should and shouldn't be done. These are
the first few Beatitudes from Matthew 5-7.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit (the humble): for
theirs is the kingdom of heaven. "
"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be
comforted. "
"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the
earth. "
"Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after
righteousness: for they shall befilled. "
"Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain
mercy ""
"Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see


God. "
"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be
called the children of God. "
"Blessed are they which are persecuted for
righteousness 'sake: for theirs is the kingdom of
heaven. "
"Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and
persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against
you falsely for my sake."
"Rejoice, and be exceedingly glad: for great is your
reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets
which were before you. "
God Bless.
Have a great Thanksgiving.

Bronson Tip-OffTournament


Newberry crashes preseason party


Chiefland's Bo Beauchamp drives and prepares to launch
over Newberry's Barcarius Dinkins in the opening round
Bronson Tip-Off Tournament.


.; Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's annual preseason Tip-Off
Tournament was won Saturday night by Class
2B Newberry. the school with the largest student
population and the most experienced squad in
the competition, with Bronson taking runner-up
honors and Chiefland winning the consolation
round over Cedar Key.
Newberry defeated Bronson 67-35 behind the
play of 6-feet 5-inch Bacarius Dinkins who is
coming off an ACL ligament tear in his knee but
apparently wasn't bothered much by the injury
during the game. He scored 24 points against
Bronson, more than a third of the Panthers'
points.
Panther Coach Bobby Welch said the
tournament gave him a chance to look at what his
team could do. He feels they need a lot of work
to get ready for the likes of Williston, Fort White
and Suwannee County, all teams in Newberry's
district.
"It wasn't so much the competition of the
tournament; it was where we were," Welch said.
Bronson played well through the second
period against a tall and athletic Panther team,
trailing 28-19 at the half, but the Eagles fell apart
in the third period when the Panthers began to
apply an intense half court press that disrupted
the Eagle offense.
Freshman center Devaughn Jenkins, who
stands 6-feet 5-inches led Bronson with 13
points followed by Chris Saxon with 6 and Matt
Olavarria with 5.
The preseason tournament took place a week
after all four schools finished the regular football
season. Many of the athletes were football
players and had yet to get fully into a mindset to
play basketball.
SHaldeman said Newberry is bigger, stronger
and more athletic than Bronson and those factors
were a difficult matchup. He said Bronson turned
the ball over in the first half due to mistakes, but
it was defensive pressure that caused second half
turnovers.
Jenkins was not aggressive, Haldeman said,
which allowed Dinkins and company to get
position under the basket for rebounds and high
percentage shots. He said he has told Jenkins he
a sot has to be more physical and to play like a senior.
of the Haldeman said he is optimistic about the
remainder of the season and especially about the


future. The Eagles have plenty of young talent
moving up through the ranks, with Jenkins being
one of them. The ) oung talent didn't go unnoticed
by Newberry's coach.
"Bronson is young. They are a very young
and scary team," Welch said.
Bronson defeated Cedar Key 58-33 in its
opening game Friday night with Jenkins scoring
22 and Ben Landon 12 to lead the Eagles and
Cedar Key's Zach Anderson scoring 23 and
Ronnie Sills 7 to lead the Sharks.
The Eagles took a 12-0 lead in the first period
and appeared to be on their way to a rout before
the scrappy Sharks fought back and narrowed the
score to 19-11. Bronson regained its composure
and continued to build on its lead for the
remainder of the game.
Cedar Key is a defensively aggressive team
led by Sills, a senior, and by Anderson. Cedar
Key's defense kept opposing teams on edge, but
the Sharks lacked the scoring firepower to keep
pace with opponents. Few shots were taken from
the outside and the team lacks height to dominate
on the inside.
Chiefland was defeated 59-31 by Newberry in
the opening game of the tournament, but defeated
Cedar Key 42-26 in the consolation round.
Chiefland was missing two key starters
who were suspended for disciplinary reasons at
school. The suspensions happened late in the
week, throwing the team out of rhythm. Two
starters were also out for grades, but can return if
they hit the books.
Coach Adam Boyd said he fielded a young
and inexperienced team for the tournament. Two
members of the talented 8"' grade team have
moved up to his varsity squad and he also has
two boys on the team who never played before.
Jamantye Thompson, a senior starter, has decided
to focus on football and not play basketball.
Boyd's go-to players in the tournament were
Bo Beauchamp who scored 6 points against
Newberry and 8 against Cedar Key; Trent
Perryman had 6 against Newberry and 6 against
Cedar Key, and P.J. Allen, a first year player who
transferred to Chiefland from Oklahoma. He led
Chiefland against Cedar Key with 16 points.
Reheem Brown also scored 6.
Boyd said Allen is a great player to coach.
He listens closely, shows respect and carries out
the plays exactly as he is told. Beauchamp, an
