CHS, Cedar Key School get Grade A ratings


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Chiefland High School teachers and
students got a little something extra in their
daily morning briefing over the intercom on
Tuesday.
Following the Pledge of Allegiance,
birthday announcements, personnel notes
and similar daily tidbits, Principal Bill
Tovine added a final memo a salute of sorts
for months of hard work and dedication by
all involved.
"Congratulations. You're an 'A'
school."
Tovine and three other Levy County high
school principals received the good news
from the Department of Education early


in the week that their schools had either
improved over their 2009 performances in
statewide grading, or had remained in the
upper echelon statewide.
And that was cause for celebration, from
the shores of the Gulf to the county line.
CHS improved its status from a "C"
school in 2009 to an "A" school for 2010.
Cedar Key School remained an "A"
school, while Bronson Middle High School
remained a "B" school. Williston High
School improved from an "F" school in
2009 to a "C" school in 2010.
Tovine had words of praise for the whole
Chiefland community.
"No. 1, we have some good kids on this
campus-we truly do have some outstanding
kids," he said. "With that, we have some


extremely good parents as well. That is the
most obvious thing.
"But, as I was telling our faculty, none of
this happens without them and their ability
to stop, drop and roll and plan on the fly,
solve problems, be blue-collar educators,
and work with the students in the capacity
they did."
With their status as an "A" school, CHS
now becomes the first "standalone" school,
working solely as a high school, without
the assistance of middle school students,
to receive an "A" in the history of Levy
County.
That distinction was a particular source
of pride for Levy County School Board
member Paige Brookins, a graduate of
CHS.


"I was totally thrilled to hear the news,"
she said. "The high school had to have a
minimum score, and CHS went way over
the top. That is just outstanding, especially
for a standalone high school. I am thrilled.
It was total teamwork, with everyone at the
school level and the country administrative
level coming together to benefit the students.
I cannot state how happy I am for everyone
concerned."
Brad Penny, assistant principal of Cedar
Key School, congratulated everyone in the
county for their positive results. He echoed
Tovine's observations, and Brookins',
that such high scores do not happen by
accident.

County to continue with


expanded city involvement


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

A little known county subcommittee
was placed in the spotlight Tuesday when
Levy County Commissioners granted the
group approval to continue discussing
fire protection issues, but with one main
condition.
Commissioners instructed staff to write
a courtesy letter to cities advising the city
officials of the subcommittee's existence
and inviting cities to send a member to
subcommittee meetings if they wish to
participate.
The subcommittee of the Levy County
Fire Advisory Board was formed to review
a 2005 report written by Mizelle, Hodges
& Associates that recommended changes
to the way fire protection is handled in the
county. The Fire Advisory Board advises
the county commission.
The Hodges report's recommendations
were partially implemented by the county
commission. The Morriston, Montbrook and
Gulf Hammock volunteer fire departments
have been consolidated into the Levy
County Fire Department. Otter Creek has
contracted with Chiefland to handle its fire
services.
But the Hodges report included other
recommendations including where fire
stations should be located in the county.
Commission Chairman Danny Stevens
expressed concern that not all the cities
in the county were being represented on
the fire subcommittee and that important
recommendations might be made without
input from all the cities.
Chiefland Vice Mayor Teresa Barron, a
member of the subcommittee and the fire

board, approached the county commission
Tuesday because two commissioners
had been elected after the subcommittee
was formed. She wanted assurances
that Commissioner Ryan Bell and
Commissioner Chad Johnson approved of
the subcommittee's work.
Bell said he had no objections to
the subcommittee, but Johnson was in
Baltimore and could not attend the meeting.
Commissioners decided a courtesy letter to
cities inviting them to send representatives
to the subcommittee meetings would take
care of Stevens' concerns.
The subcommittee meetings have not
been advertised in newspapers. County
Attorney Anne Bast Brown said the county
posted notices on bulletin boards in the
courthouse and at the county road department
that was enough to alert the public.
One question being posed concerning
fire protection is whether the county needs
to have fewer fire departments. County
Coordinator Fred Moody said some type of
consolidation is needed. There are currently
12 to 13 departments in the county.
"There's got to be a consolidation and
redistricting," he said.
In other business, the board gave
Emergency Management Director Mark
Johnson permission to purchase a radiation
detection monitoring system for $12,195.
Johnson said the device would be used
when Progress Energy holds its practice
exercises for nuclear emergencies.
He said Levy County is unique because
it will be the only county in the nation that
would have three nuclear reactors within
its emergency planning area, if Progress

Correctional


officers charged


with mistreating


inmate

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has
arrested two Lancaster Correctional Institution correctional
officers on charged of inhuman treatment of an inmate.
James Barry, 41, of Bell, and Michael Devanie, 44,
Trenton, were arrested following a six month investigation
by the FDLE and Florida Department of Corrections.
The charges resulted from an incident on May 24,
2010 at Lancaster Correctional Institution during which an
inmate collapsed while participating in an inmate exercise
program. Barry and Devanie were placed on administrative
leave while the incident was investigated.
The investigation found that Barry and Devanie
directed the inmate to do strenuous exercise in the sand in
the heat and failed to provide adequate water breaks. The
investigation also found that officers refused the inmate's
request for medical assistance and failed to promptly
summon medical personnel after he collapsed.
Barry directed other inmates who witnessed the
incident to provide inaccurate accounts of what transpired
to investigators.

Springhouse Quilters


get ready for 2011 I

This year is fast coming to an end. Springhouse Quilters have
all enjoyed a very successful year of quilting. Most of all, members
have been trying to finish things started before 2010 and before
new project ideas bring on the temptation of starting a new quilting
project.
Pat Hodges, president for 2010, has agreed to continue to lead
our group again in 2011, so theie will be more new projects after the
new year starts.
Norma Birman, our program chairlady for 2010, has helped lead
Springhouse Quilters into new ideas and quilting projects and will
continue to do so in 2011. Springhouse members enjoy a monthly
workshop class each month of some special technique and/or
project.
One project completed was the "Marching Penguins" by Chris
Schrieber. It is a wonderful example of the feeling that a fun quilt
can create. She was happy getting this piece finished just in time to
enjoy for the holidays.
For information about Springhouse Quilters, contact Lois Scott,

Williston's Pee Wee Mercer


remembers the good times


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Glen "Pee Wee" Mercer learned long ago that he
would never walk again, much less join world-class
bull riders in competition around the country. He
has accepted that, and has moved on.
The memories have helped him take significant
strides in the recovery process. And Pee Wee
Mercer has enough positive memories to last a
lifetime.
Most, if not all, are documented in Mercer's
book "The Last Ride," the 2000 publication he
coauthored with friend Patrick D. Smith. "The Last
Ride" takes the reader from Pee Wee's early days as
a Williston tot, through his days at Williston High
School, and through his time as one of the most
promising young bull riders in the world.
Pee Wee Mercer, the son of Howard and Helen
Mercer of Williston, won two High School Rodeo
Championships in 1985, when he was a freshman
at WHS, and in 1988, when he was a senior.
He would go on to participate and compete in
rodeos all over the country, many of which are
provided in startling detail in "The Last Ride."
The book begins, however, with the accident
that changed his life and the lives of those around
him forever. On Nov. 11, 1995, Mercer was
seriously injured while dismounting a bull during a
competition at the Brighton, Fla. Indian reservation.
Pee Wee was left with a broken neck and severed
spinal cord.
Speaking from his parents' home west of
Williston, Mercer described the fateful ride in
detail, adding that he has grown comfortable in
doing so.
"He was going left, and I was going left, and
all of a sudden he was going right, and I wasn't,"
he said. "I got my hand hung up in the rope and
I turned upside down. Instead of putting my free
hand down on the ground, so that 1 could drag
loose, I reached for the tail of my rope, and by the
time 1 reached it had come loose. All of my weight
landed on my head.
"I remember it like it was yesterday."
The rural location of the Indian reservation
meant that Pee Wee had to be flown by helicopter to
receive medical care. During that flight, he wrote in
"The Last Ride," Pee Wee felt as if his body were
encased in a solid block of ice. That, and the words
of the paramedics "He's not going to make it"
are the only memories Pee Wee has of that flight.
The words of the doctors at the hospital,


however, remain crystal clear, 15 years later.
"As soon as we reached the hospital, they did
an MRI, and shortly after that, a doctor came into
the emergency room and said to me, 'Your neck is
broken, your spinal cord is severed. You will never
walk again," Pee Wee wrote in his book. "I said to
him, 'I'm not surprised.'"
Those who know Pee Wee are not surprised by
his courage in speaking of the event, nor are they
surprised that he wrote a book about his life. And
the fact that the book is so well received raises few
eyebrows.
Pee Wee said that the process of writing,
utilizing voice recognition technology, was initially
intended as just something to pass the time.
"The book was never meant to be published,"
he said. "It was just something for me to do. The
voice recognition was great. To correct a word, all
I had to do was say 'Oops' and a list would come
up. If the word I wanted was on there, I would start
spelling it, like Alpha. Bravo. And it picked it up
easy."
"The Last Ride" is an easy and compelling read,
if the words of the late actor Buddy Ebsen, he of
Beverly Hillbillies' fame, are any indication.
"The Last Ride is a masterpiece, recording in
depth the lives and the world of rodeo people little
known, where the payoff is broken bones and gas
money. I predict this book will become a classic."
Howard Mercer agreed.
"I know it is a good book, because he starts out
talking about his daddy," he said. "I am proud of
him. Yes sir."
Pee Wee details his family history early on in
the book, and even provides anecdotes about family
dogs and horses both key elements of the cattle
business, which the Mercer family was involved in
from Pee Wee's earliest days.
The are also passages devoted to Pee Wee's
personal relationships to friends on the rodeo
circuit, and to a couple of female acquaintances,
including his fiance, Tracy.
The Pee Wee Mercer name will be more
in the spotlight in mid and late January, in the
weeks leading up to the annual "Pee Wee Mercer
Benefit Bullriding Competition," set for Feb. 5 at
Williston's Horseman's Park.
As for now, at a time of year when inspirational
messages are in the spotlight, you can't do much
better than "The Last Ride," a study in inspiration.
and a lesson in courage. Give the Mercer family,
a call at (352) 528-4088, and request a copy for
yourself or someone you love.

individuals are being terminated," said Department
of Corrections Secretary Walt McNeil.
Barry and Devanie turned themselves in at
the Gilchrist County Jail. Both were charged with
one count of malicious battery, cruel or inhuman
treatment upon an inmate causing great bodily harm,
a third degree felony. Barry was also charged with
one count of witness tampering, a second degree
felony.
The Office of the State Attorney in the Eighth
Judicial Circuit assisted with the investigation and
will prosecute the case.
No further details are being released at this time.

Weigh-ins begin Fair preparations

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer I


Bronson begins


to administer


$650,000 grant


Will be used to


rehabilitate homes

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Nine homeowners in Bronson will soon benefit
from a $650.000 federal grant that provides money
to rehabilitate low to moderate income homes.
Town Council members were told Monday
the preliminary Community Development
Block Grant application process will begin on
Dec. 17 when town residents can pick up intake
applications from Town Hall.
The deadline for filing the early grant
applications is Jan. 14. A contractor's workshop
is set for 2 p.m. on Jan. 13. Contractors must
be licensed and insured. There will likely be a
contractor for each home. A homeowner workshop
is set for 6 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the Dogan S. Cobb
Municipal Building.
Final deadline for homeowners to submit
the full and final application, which will include
details about income levels, will be Feb. 18.
David Fox of Fred Fox Enterprises will be the
contact person who deals with the town on behalf
of his father's company, which will administer the
grant. David Fox appeared before town council
members to go over details of the CDBG process.
In other business:
-Council members gave Public Works Director
Jimmy Dunford permission to appear at the
Legislative Delegation Hearing at 4 p.m. on Dec.
15 to ask for assistance in determining if the city's
cable provider, Florida Cable, is obeying state
law.
Dunford said the town has no franchise with
the company and the company says it doesn't have
to pay the town anything to operate within the
municipal boundaries. Dunford said the company
had been paying the town $79.50 per month, but
the payments have been discontinued and he is
not sure of the purpose of the payments.
Dunford said he has investigated as best he can
but can't find any state agency that enforces a state
law he believes requires cable companies to pay a
franchise fee to the state. He wants state legislators
representing Levy County to clarify what agency'
or agencies regulate cable companies in Florida
and if cable companies must pay franchise fees
to the state.
He said Florida Cable has indicated it will pull
out of the town if forced to pay franchise fees.
The town has finalized a deed to 6.73 acres
of land donated to the town by Sleepy Creek
Farms, LLC. The property, located next to the
county agricultural center, will be the site of the
future Bronson Fire Department fire house facility
and a training center for firefighters. The town is
preparing a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural
Development grant to apply for funding to build
the facility.
Town Council members will meet on Dec. 20
to review a document that assesses whether the
town has achieved its goals with its comprehensive
plan. The Evaluation and Appraisal Report will
be a bit unusual. The town is 20 years behind
in updating the comprehensive plan, but once
the EAR process is completed it can began to
rewrite the plan and carve out the city's future.
The town has spent $26,000 to date on planning
by the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council
to bring the comprehensive plan into compliance
with state law.


The Suwannce River Fair feeder steer weigh-in SaturdayN was
a testament to the popularity of the tri-county area's biggest
event.
Fair officials weighed 156 feeder steers on a chilly morning
that saw trucks and cattle trailers lined up from the fair barn
back to U.S. 26. Trucks and trailers stretched to U.S. 19 and
out of sight.
The frosty morning air didn't change anyone's enthusiasm,
but it wasn't pleasant.
"It wt wasn't just a little chilly. It was a lot chilly," said Marcia
Smith, FFA advisor for Bronson High School who rose at 5
a.m. to bring her son Landon's steer to the event.
Bronson FFA member Sarah Trimm, who rode with the
Smiths, brought a stubborn steer she branded with a name that
won't be repeated.
"He acts just like a Trimm," she chuckled.
Chiefland Elementary School physical education instructor
Kyle Parnell brought his three sons, Parrish, 18, Payton, 15,
and Payne 10, along with their three steers.
"Parrish could take it or leave it," Parnell said, speaking
about exhibiting at the fair. "The other two younger ones like it.
They learn responsibility in taking care of animals, and Payton
likes to compete in showmanship."


Payne Parnell waits in his FSU hooded sweat-
shirt for his steer and two others behind him to
be weighed.


Trucks and cattle trailers park on a chilly morning as Shelby Owens of Bronson FFA calms her
they inch they way toward the fair barn. Clyde shortly before weighing him.



Hospital financing turns back to bonds


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


The Tri County Hospital project
is far from dead, but the strategy for
financing the project is apparently
evolving to meet changing political
realities.
Ameris Health Systems, the
company planning to build the full
service hospital in north Chiefland, is
trying to win a federal extension of the
Dec. 31 deadline to issue the federal
tax-free bonds.
County Coordinator Fred Moody
said he received a phone message from
Ameris Health Systems President and
CEO Sam Lewis indicatig he was
contacting members of Congress to
obtain an extension of the deadline.
"He said the Senate side was looking
good and he was working on the House
side," Moody said.
Moody said Lewis indicated he
would have had to shell out half million
dollars for bond counsel retainers to try
to complete the bond issue before Dec.
31, but there "just wasn't enough time"
to get it done.


Attempts by the Journal to contact
Lewis by phone were unsuccessful, but
the Journal confirmed through another
source that Lewis is indeed attempting
to win approval for an extension of the
bond deadline.
The state's Division of Bond
Finance has approved $70 million in
tax-free federal bonds for the hospital
project, but it took two months to secure
the bonds for the project. It didn't leave
Lewis with sufficient time to issue the
bonds and sell them to investors.
Lewis said in November he would
make an effort to complete the bond
issue, but he wasn't making any
promises because the time frame was
short and he could not be sure all the
pieces would fall together by Dec. 31.
The Recovery Zone Facility Bonds
were issued through the American
Reinvestment and Recovery Act,
also known as the economic stimulus
program. Lewis initially asked Gov.
Charlie Crist to reassign the bonds to
the hospital authority. Crist reviewed
the request, but decided instead to
allow the Office of Tourism, Trade
and Economic Development Council


steer


to develop guidelines for local
governments to follow in applying for
the bonds.
By the time the guidelines were
developed, too much time had elapsed
for Lewis to complete the bond issue.
Another factor also delayed the bond
issue. When the Division of Bond
Finance was ready to release the bonds,
St. Lucie County slipped in ahead of
Levy County to secure $30 million of
the bonds for a project in that county.
That forced Lewis to contact other
large municipalities in the state in an
attempt to convince city officials to
release federal tax-free bonds from
the stimulus program that they didn't
intend to use. It took weeks before
enough bonds were available for the
hospital project.
But Lewis has promised to continue
fighting for the hospital project.
Moody said Lewis told him the
county doesn't need to do anything
more. Moody said he would have
preferred to have received something in
writing from Lewis rather than a verbal
message, but that's all he received.

of all time, especially among those of a
particular age group, at a certain time of
year.
Fortunately for those in the Tri-County area,
the Suwannee Valley Players are more than happy
to assist with an answer.
"Is there a Santa Claus?"
The Players, featuring a cast of men, women
and children from the local area, presented three
performances of "Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa
Claus" over the weekend, and will do so again
Dec. 10-12. Friday and Saturday shows begin at
8 p.m., and Sunday's performance begins at 2:30
p.m. Performances are held at the Chief Theatre,
25 E. Park Ave. in Chiefland.
Chiefland fifth-grader MaKenna Hamilton
plays the title role of the true-life story, that of
young Virginia O'Hanlon, who gets the harrowing
news from a couple of friends that there really
isn't a Santa Claus. Virginia looks for answers I . ...

Sheriff's arrests



Deputies, police dog catch runaway speeder


A Chiefland man drove his vehicle at high speeds
through the city Saturday attempting to escape a city
patrolman trying to stop him.
James Oliver Johnson, 25, 5251 N.W. 86"' St., wound up
bailing out of his car and running away on foot before a city
police dog caught him by his trousers and held him until a
patrolman could take custody.
Johnson told police he was running away because he had
a suspended license. He was arrested on charges of being a
habitual driver with a suspended or revoked license, fleeing
or attempting to elude, and resisting an officer without
violence.
The foot chase that followed the high speed vehicle
pursuit resulted in city patrolman Alton Home tripping
on a speed bump in the dark parking lot at Prairie Oaks
Apartments as he chased Johnson. He landed on his side
and broke four ribs. His K-9 dog Delta continued the chase
and caught Johnson.
The problems began at 12:44 a.m. when Johnson's
vehicle was seen by Home traveling south on N.W. 12th
Drive at a high rate of speed. Home was able to clock
Johnson's vehicle at 97 miles per hour in a 25 mph zone.
Johnson ran a stop sign at N.W. 12"' Drive and continued
running stop signs at a high rate of speed with Home behind
him. Home never lost sight of the vehicle and was able to
get behind it in the 400 block of S.W. 4th Ave. He activated
his emergency lights and siren. Johnson continued to flee
at higher speeds and turned back south on South Main,
running a red light, police said.
Johnson continued increasing his speed in an attempt to
lose Home. Johnson came to a stop directly behind Prairie
Oaks Apartments on S.W. 2nd Drive and bailed out of the
vehicle. He fled on foot with Home chasing him. Home
released Delta, but lost his footing when he tripped.
Johnson was stopped when the dog grabbed his loose
clothing. When Home arrived, he released Delta and was
able to sit and hold Johnson until backup officers arrived.
Johnson admitted seeing Home behind him and attempting
to flee. Home was transported to Shands Hospital for his
injuries.
A check with dispatch revealed Johnson's license had
been revoked for failing to pay traffic fines on several
occasions. He was listed as a habitual offender.
Bond was set at $13,000.
Two Chiefland men were arrested on Dec. 2 in
unrelated drug cases for selling street drugs.
Melvin Alday, 76, 7951 N.W. 147th Place Chiefland
sold 19.1 grams of the prescription painkiller Vicodin
to a sheriff's office agent in August. The threshold for
trafficking in Vicodin is 4 grams. Alday was arrested on


charges of sale of a controlled substance and trafficking in
illegal drugs.
Walter Burns, 39, Chiefland, sold .6 grams of cocaine
to a confidential source for $70. Burns is a convicted felon
for drug-related offenses. He was arrested on charges of
possession of a controlled substance and sale of a controlled
substance.
Bond for Alday was set at $50,000. Bond for Burns was
set at $30,000.
A Williston man was arrested on Nov. 30 for turning
in front of an oncoming vehicle to get the attention of the
female driver driving toward him.
Dale Lynn Smith, 50, 15991 N.E. 6th Place, was arrested
on charges of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle and
reckless driving.
The woman said she saw Smith driving an S-10 pickup
truck north on N.E. 114"' Ave. and waving his hand trying to
get her to stop. She said he turned in front of her when she
failed to stop, forcing her to turn left into oncoming traffic.
She ran off the road, throwing the victim from the back of
her truck.
Smith told deputies he tried to get the woman to stop
because he wanted to talk to her about a horse. When she
didn't stop, he turned into her lane to make her stop, according
to the sheriff's office.
The victim was transported by ambulance to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville with head, shoulder and leg injuries.
Dustin Fremont Arnold, 29, Daytona Beach, driving

I Players present "Yes Virginia, There Is A
Santa Claus"
The Suwannee Valley Players are proud to present this
year's Christmas play, "Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa
Claus" by Pat Cook. It is a delightful start to your holiday
celebrations. Bring the whole family to see the famous
editorial that appeared in 1897 in the New York Sun, the
most published editorial ever written.
t "Dear Editor, is there a Santa Claus?" is a question
innocently asked by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon
(Makenna Hamilton). Christmas was coming and all was
right with the world ... until her friends, Missy (Sarah
Manders) and Charly (Sydney Allen), mischievously fill
her in on the "facts" about Old Saint Nick.
S Who could tell her the truth? Not her father, a doctor
(Andrew Kelly) who is always fighting against old world
cures. Not her teacher (Barbara Clemens), who is already
fed up with Christmas even though it hadn't arrived. So
Virginia writes a letter to the editor (Perry Davidson) of
The New York Sun, for 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
(Buddy Leaptrot), a veteran editorial writer who knows he
must answer, and must answer truthfully. And so he begins
his reply, which becomes one of the most memorable and
cherished editorials in newspaper history.
Also appearing is Katherine Woodham (Mama), Darby
Allen (Mrs. Madison), Janice Grant (Mrs. Marbury), and
Duwane Schwingel (Father Michael / Lige).
"Yes, Virginia" runs for two weekends, December 3 5
and 10 12. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Fridays and
Saturday, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $8 for
students (K-12) and seniors (65 and over), and $10 for
adults. On Sunday, Dec. 5th, attendees can receive $1 off
admission with a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots.
The Chief Theatre is located at 25 East Park Ave. in
Chiefland. For more information, call (352) 493-ARTS or
visit www.svplayers.org.

"The Real Gift"
D&D Dance Studios, Inc. presents "The Real Gift,"
a Christmas recital, beginning at 6 p.m. Dec. 10 in the
Chiefland High School auditorium. Admission will be a new
toy for local charities to benefit the community. Admission
is free for children age 12 and under.

Outdoor family movie night, Dec. 11

Family Movie Night" featuring "Polar Express" in 3D,

Players auditions
The Suwannee Valley Players calls for auditions for
"The Drowsy Chaperone," the new musical comedy that is
swooping into town with tons of laughs. The players invite
all men and women at all experience levels to audition at
11 a.m. Dec. 11 the Chief Theater, 25 East Park Ave. in


Chiefland. Auditions include a cappella vocal selection,
dance audition, and script reading. People should wear
comfortable, dance or athletic clothes and shoes.
Join the cast of this musical within a comedy crammed
full of every cliche, gag and gimmick from the golden age
of musicals. Complete with a wealthy dowager, debonair
bridegroom, a harried producer, jovial gangsters posing as
pastry chefs, a flaky "feldzig" chorus girl trying to steal
the stage, a Latin lothario trying to woo the bride-to-be,
an aviatrix, and of course, the drowsy chaperone, the show
boasts thrills and surprises that take both the cast (literally)
and the audience (metaphorically) soaring into the rafters!
Opportunities exist for musicians (drumset/percussion,
bass guitar, keyboards, 2-4 flute or reeds, 1 trombone, 2-3
trumpets), behind-the-scenes personnel, including costume
design/sewing, set and scenery design/construction, and
stage and house crew.

p.m. Contact Director Stacey Trenteseaux at (352) 246-

Grades, from Page 7


"It is a combination of good students, hard work,
and excellent faculty and staff," he said. "When
you combine that with good parent support, and
everybody working together, good things happen.
We are very proud."
CHS and CKS were two of 140 schools
statewide 30 percent that achieved the highest
grade possible. That number prompted words of
praise from Florida Education Commissioner Eric
J. Smith.
"These are terrific results for our high schools,
providing very clear evidence that they have stepped
up their efforts to offer demanding coursework for
their students and graduate more of them prepared for
college or a career," Smith said. "I'm extremely proud
of Florida's high school teachers, administrators and
support staff for what they have accomplished and
I'm confident that they are already looking ahead
at how to accelerate this progress and make every
academic measure at their school a success."
Although his school did not quite reach the
pinnacle of scores, Bronson Middle High School
Principal Jerry Lawrence was well-satisfied
nevertheless.
"We are very proud of our score," he said. "It
results from the very hard work of our parents and
our students, and, most importantly, our faculty,"
he said. "We have a good sense of family here in
Bronson. We work very well together, and we always
put our students first."

We rolled up to the little town's
summer festival only to find our band .,
was not scheduled on the main stage. -
Not surprising, given Christian groups
aren't generally held in high regard these
days. The event organizer took us off the
beaten path a ways to show us the little
section of black-top road he'd picked out
for us. It was out back of an abandoned '.. -
service station. Across the way I noticed
two lonely souls fanning themselves in
a rusty concession trailer. They gave us
a friendly wave, obviously glad for the
company.
We'd be the only band in this line-up,
coming on right after a young girl singing But Any
karaoke. She'd kick off right after a troop wit (
of tap dancing grandmas' wearing high
heels and sparkly red, white, and blue
leotards. Despite this top billing, we found a few details
had been neglected; like a P.A. system, or a scheduled
time to set up one!
Thankfully this wasn't our first rodeo, and our
gear was in the trailer. After a group prayer for more
humility, we immediately set about to salvage what
we could out of the day. Unfortunately, in the process,
I got totally lambasted by one of the eighty year old
dancing grandmas for discreetly attempting to set up
our equipment in the background while they aerated the
sticky pavement with their high heeled stomp routine.
I wanted to say, "You realize there's nobody watching
except those two in the concession trailer, right?"
However, since she could probably point that same thing
out to me, and since she was now brandishing one of
those high heels, I wisely replied, "Yes main". I even
offered to run her antique reel to reel tape machine while
she sang Judy Garland's 'Somewhere over the Rainbow'
two octaves higher than a pining purple porpoise in
puberty.
Not long after, 1 also got lambasted by the dad of
that precious little singing girl for the same thing. Now
understandably, he was just nervous and wanting things
to go perfect. As far as he was concerned, this might as
well have been the Grand Ole' Opry. (I could tell how
keyed up he was by the way he kept mouthing cuss
words at me when I would move around back stage.) So
to avoid a ruckus, I finally sat down and let him savor
it all. It all gave me time to question why in the world
had I ever let MTV mesmerize me as a kid. "Huh huh
huh... that's cool," I'd said, "I'll start a band and be rich
and famous." "Yeah yeah yeah...," Beavis agreed, "And
we'll get some of those girly models to wax the hood of

I ..~ Well, 1 never did see those riches. In
S fact, I barely recovered from spending
f my last dime converting a Formica
counter top into my first electric guitar
I in seventh grade shop class. Accounting
for practice and equipment toting time,
my average salary as a musician would
Total up to about 14 cents a month.
:.,- Thank goodness for day jobs.
S Oh, and the whole 'famous' thing
never really panned out either. The only
people who might possibly ask of me,
"Where are they now?" are some over
..zealous IRS agents wanting their cut on
ray... that 14 cents.
Iy Shefield Lastly, let me just state, "There is no
such thing as a groupie with a full set of
teeth!" Enough said.
Thankfully, I'm okay with all that now. The Lord
Jesus has come into my heart and freed me from all the
bitterness I'd harbored over the years. So next time you
walk past our band's little lawnmower trailer stage at
the car show, don't waste your time trying to make me
mad by sticking your fingers in your ears and griping,
"You mind cutting that down Buster, I'm on my way
over to the cake walk here?" And don't hit me with that
look that says, "You'll never make it as a Rock Star". I
already know.
What? I'm not bitter. Do you think I'm bitter?
But anyway- Nowadays, whether I'm up there
crooning to upwards of 17 people, or just the clean up
crew, I want you to know I'm doing it because Jesus
loves you. That's right; YOU. It's your fault. If God
says He wants me up there sweating all day just on the
off chance you'll hear me sing something to cause you
to consider Jesus as you stomp off, then that's what I'll
do. You see the Lord has given me a love for you, and 1
know He appreciates me trying to show it. Besides, I've
learned God's approval is much more fulfilling than any
of the fickle accolades of that MTV crowd. In the grand
scheme of things, it's what matter most. I hope you've
thought about that.
Maybe all my foolishness is part of God's master
plan, right along with Beavis and the tap dancing
Grannies. (But God hath chosen the foolish things of the
world to confound the wise; 1 Corinthians 1:27 KVJ)
I'm okay with it, really...

Artificial snow charms young, old at Christmas Festival

Story and photo by Terry Witt .'. . -
Staff Writer i j .. ---- '---1 I I


It snowed in C Ir. lji.nd Saturday. Well, almost.
Officials of The Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of
Commerce hired a company out of Gainesville to blow 4
tons of ice crystals into a pile at the Train Depot as part
of the Christmas Festival. The ice crystals served as make
believe snow.
The kids loved it.
"It was enough. The kids were having a ball," said
Chamber President Sheila Smith. "They were throwing
snowballs and building snow angels."
Temperatures were moderate on Saturday, but there
was still a small pile of ice by the time darkness fell and
the Lighted Christmas Parade began on Main Street.
The parade drew a large crowd, though it was difficult
to see spectators standing along the dark street.
Candy came flying out to children along the street as
lighted floats made their way down the darkened streets,
many playing Christmas music.
One of the crowd favorites was the Grinch that stole
Christmas. The i i.,di green monster waved from the top
of a float.
The favorite of the judges was the Chiefland High
School freshman class float. The float won first place in
the homecoming parade. It was refitted for the Lighted
Christmas Parade and won first place again.
Second place went to the Gilchrist County ( li.irl of
Commerce and third place to Joe's Towing and Rollback.
There were 60 units in the parade, which began in the
parking lot of Chiefland High School and rolled through
the night toward the Chiefland Train Depot.
The Christmas Festival itself took place at the depot.
Arts and crafts vendors sold items to people who browsed
at a leisurely pace.
"We had a large turnout and it was all day long," Smith
said. "I think the weather was perfect."

Three more ask governor for county commission seat


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Three more men have applied for
appointment to District 1 Levy County
Commission seat.
Bronson Town Councilman Berlon
Weeks, Bronson Ace Hardware Manager
John Meeks and Realtor Darryl Diamond
of Inglis are the latest applicants.
Diamond, a real estate consultant from
Inglis, who holds a bachelor's degree from
Stony Brook State University in psychology,
has been a real estate broker since 1980 and
a real estate school instructor since 2005.
His letter to Gov. Charlie Crist said he
strongly believes his knowledge relating
to the "hyper fast growth" that will occur
with the construction of two nuclear power
plants in south Levy County is necessary
information for the county commission.
"For the past 6 years I have shared
this knowledge with every Levy County
Commissioner, and every other county
employee in Bronson that is handling
the future comp plan for our county. The
two commission members you selected
two years ago for our county are a big
improvement; however, they cannot do it


alone. They need help in understanding
and controlling this potential "hyper fast
growth" that is coming to south Levy
County. 1 would appreciate being part of
the team."
Diamond said he has personally lived
through a nuclear power plant build out.
He has also attended more Public Service
Commission and Nuclear Regulatory
Commission meetings than any other
commissioner, he said
"Many Levy County officials have little
if any experience with this type of growth.
For these officials this power plant build
out is "uncharted territory"; as for me, this
will be deja vu. This knowledge comes
from firsthand experience with the Disney
World build out," he wrote.
Weeks, who has owned Weeks Bail
Bonds since 1998 and has served as a
town councilman since 1997 and is also
a manager and partner in Weeks Chevron
in Bronson, served in the U.S. Army
from 1994 to 2002. He was honorably
discharged.
"I have owned and operated several
successful businesses and have a great
grasp of what it takes to meet payrolls and
provide for my employees," Weeks wrote


to the governor. "1 have always strived to
be fair and honest in my business dealings
with folks in this community and state."
When elected to the town council,
Weeks said the town had not completed an
audit since 2003. The comp plan had not
been updated since 1997. The sewer plant
was on the verge of being fined by the state
for non-compliance with permitting.
"I was tasked by Mayor Franklin
Schuler to oversee the sewer department
and water department. We quickly got our
permit straight and then started the audits,
completing all of the back audits in one
year with the help of Sen. Oelrich and the
joint legislative auditing committee. Our
comp plan is being updated and we should
have it finished in six to 12 months. 1
started a sewer committee and rate study to
make our water and sewer system a viable
revenue stream. We recently were given
an award for excellence by the Suwannee
River League of Cities. I am appointed to
the Economic Zone Development Agency
for Levy County and have held the position
for three years. I have lobbied for the
Suwannee River League of Cities. 1 went
to Tallahassee twice in this year's sessions
to lobby for the league."


Meeks, manager of Bronson Ace
Hardware since 1995, holds a bachelor's
degree in history from the University of
Florida.
Like Weeks, he is a lifelong resident of
Levy County and plans to live here for the
rest of his life. He said he has been active
in protecting the environment through
organized cleanup efforts and plans to be a
steward of the environment.
He said his management role in business
gives him a keen sense of what needs to be
done to run county government more like
an efficient business than "the wasteful
organization that it currently is."
Diamond is the second resident to apply
for the position from south Levy County.
The other is Jack Schofield ofYankeetown.
If either were to be appointed, they would
have to move into District 1 to serve as a
commissioner.
The other person who has applied
for the District 1 seat is Abraham Blitch,
a Chiefland area business who lives in
District 1.
Blitch and Meeks ran for the District 4
seat and lost to Tony Parker. Blitch came
close to winning the 2008 District 1 race.

Decorating



for Christmas

SBy Rick Burnham ,-I
Editor .


W T e decorated our home for
Christmas a couple of days after
T h i1,l. -..i,.i and the experience
gave our neighbors an inside look
at the decorative theory that my wife Laurette
Subscribes to.
S That is, essentially, fill up every available
space with something that lights up.
Not really. Her decorations are stylish and
ti j elui and bring credit not only to us, but to the
whole dang neighborhood.
But that wasn't what 1 was thinking when I
was trying to string lights on the 40-foot Cypress
tree we in the front yard. 1 have an 8-foot ladder,
and I am five-foot six inches tall. That left a good
h bi at the top that would not be lit up.
limy nephew Stan and I went to Home
." D)epi, .itd bought three 10-foot sections of PVC
*pr .. I 'ng with a couple of couplings to bind
'.i-i.-i I 'ether. Satisfied that we had solved the
pr,' l..i. we came home and cut a notch in the
i .p ',It te of the pipes, and used that notch to
hi ,J ithe lights in place.
1., the time I had climbed to the top of the
.nI.l.id holding the PVC pipes, many of the
*neighbors had turned off their televisions and
',were looking out the window.
I held the lights in place at the top while my
.,nephew went around and around with the rest
of the lights. It was rudimentary, at best, and the
results were a bit short of what we wanted. There
were a couple of bare spots the size of Levy
County on that tree. Or at least we thought there
were. We couldn't turn the lights on because we
put the male end of the string of lights at the top.
So Stan went back around the tree in the
opposite direction to take them all off, and we
redid it the right way. Finally, after a couple of
hours, we were able to turn on the lights, and it
didn't look half bad.
The plastic Santa Claus looked much better.
Laurette had a four-foot plastic Santa Claus
that we decided to put on the roof. So 1 filled
Sthe base of that thing with the heaviest rocks I-
could find, and then hauled him up on top of the
house. I found a flat area to put him on, and then
stretched an extension cord up there to light him
up.
The impact of Santa Claus is truly an
amazing thing. People walking by that night
with their kids were quick to point him out, and
young'uns from here to yonder were fascinated
by the sight of Jolly Old Saint Nick, standing
high and waving joyfully for all to see. It was a
good thing. We were the hit of the neighborhood.
Well, the weather took a turn for the worse
on Nov. 30. A cold front came through with a bit
of rain, and plenty of wind. There was a bit of a
chill in the air when we went to bed around 10.
Sometime in the early morning hours, we
were awakened by a terrible noise. It began with
a low rumble and escalated from there, ending
in a deafening crash right outside our bedroom
window.
"Was that a tornado?" Laurette asked.
"No," I said. "That was Santa Claus."
I went to investigate, and sure nuff, there he
was, sprawled on the patio out back, still waving,
but doing so with a look of shock on his face, as
if someone had punched him in the gut. Santa
Claus had busted his natural rear end.
I stood him upright, brushed him off, and
went back to bed. I will try actual weights next,
the kind you put on the end of a barbell and lift
for exercise. That ought to hold him in place.
The wind played havoc with the Cypress tree
as well. Every single light we put on that thing

Someone always finds a way to



remind me of how good I have it


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

n a Gainesville business recently, I was impatiently
tapping my fingers waiting for a lady friend to join me
when 1 heard this gentleman across the table begin to talk
about God not wanting him to judge people. He caught
my ear. It seemed like a strange thing to say in a public place.
From the story he was telling, 1 gathered that the woman
seated next to him, to whom he was -p,.ikir,. had been taking
care of a dying woman. The dying woman's husband wasn't
being kind to her. The husband was a mean drunk. He said
cruel words to his poor, helpless wife.
The injustice and stupidity evidently weighed on this man.
1 listened to him talk about the need to restrain himself and
not to judge the drunken man. He knew that judgment was
God's job, he said. He mumbled something about knowing
what he would do if he did judge the man, and then repeated
his resolve to leave it in God's hands.
I could read between the lines. It wouldn't be a pretty
sight if he ever lost his grip on faith. He probably would do
something terrible to the drunken man.
He mentioned that he had taken care of his own wife for
many years in their home until she passed away from the
effects of dementia. He never left her side. He took care of
her every need. He had spent more than half a century with his
wife. He would never have abandoned her or spoken rudely to
her in her helpless state.
The man and the woman friend seated next to him
appeared to have weathered a heavy burden for a long time.
Perhaps they had weathered many burdens together. It was
evident by the wrinkles etched in their aging faces, and yet
they didn't appear to be unhappy. I sensed they took refuge in
their faith. It was carrying them through this difficult time.
Earlier in the day, I had been grousing to myself about the
day going completely haywire. I never really got on track.
I groused about people who had gotten in my way when 1
was in a hurry. The thought processes were negative. I was


negative. I drank too much caffeine.
The man's stories about his life experiences and about
caring for his dying wife touched me. He was correct in
defending the dying woman. He was correct in saying her
drunken husband was abusing her. I supported his resolve to
live like a Christian and leave it in God's hands.
It seems that I run into people like this man whenever
I'm feeling a little sorry for myself. It has happened so many
times that I don't believe it is a coincidence anymore. I'll
be grousing about something I don't like in my life, and
a person will roll past me in a wheelchair, or I will see a
person suffering from a terrible wasting disease. There's
always someone much worse off than me. I think someone is
reminding me of how good I have it.
The old gentleman 1 listened to in Gainesville was living
a life that reflected his total commitment to God. He was
consciously living as God wanted him to live rather than just
talking a good game. It wasn't easy, but he was doing it.
I've been told that God never gives us more than we can
handle. This gentleman apparently has received a bigger
helping of difficulty than many of us, but he seemed well
equipped to handle it, thanks to his faith.
Life can be a bit overwhelming at times for me, and
perhaps you. The threat of Islamic terror, nuclear war and
the negative economic conditions besetting the nation and the
world can cast a negative pall over our thoughts if we allow
such thinking. Focusing on God when there are so many
distractions is a challenge for me, at least during the daylight
hours when I'm so busy.
This gentleman dragged me out of my negativity without
consciously trying to instruct me. He set an example for me
to follow. Most of the people in the room around us weren't
listening to him. They were talking to each other. One young
woman seated next to me appeared annoyed by his comments.
She turned around to give him a dirty look. He ignored her.
I considered it my good fortune to have heard the words of

The littlest victims of Obamacare


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


F


t's time for America's youth to
buckle up and take a rough ride
on Reality Highway. For the past
two years, President Obama has
promised our children the moon, stars,
rainbows, unicorns and universal health
care for all. But the White House Santa's
cradle-to-grave entitlement mandates are
a spectacularly predictable bust.
Don't take it from me. Take it from
Obamacare's own biggest cheerleaders.
Late last month, the Service
Employees International Union informed .
dues-paying members of its behemoth
1199 affiliate in New York that it was
dropping its health care coverage for
children. That's right. A radical leftist
union, not an evil Republican corporation, is abandoning
the young 'uns to cut costs.
More than 30,000 low-wage families will be affected,
according to The Wall Street Journal. Who's to blame?
SEIU 1199 benefits manager Mitra Behroozi singled out
oppressive new state and federal regulations, including
the much-ballyhooed Obamacare rule forcing insurers to
cover dependents well into their 20s:
"...(N)ew federal health-care reform legislation
requires plans with dependent coverage to expand
that coverage up to age 26," Behroozi explained in an
Oct. 22 letter to members. "Our limited resources are
already stretched as far as possible, and meeting this new
requirement would be financially impossible."
In a related development, over the past several months
several insurers across California, Colorado, Ohio and
Missouri have dropped child-only plans because of
Obamacare-induced premium increases. Untold tens of
thousands of families who purchase their plans in the


private individual health market will be
affected.
Let us pause for a moment to
ruminate on this wholly man-caused
disaster. To sell Obamacare and
manufacture support, desperate
Democrats pandered to the college set
and their parents. Former SEIU chief
Andy Stern specifically touted the
unfunded kiddie insurance mandate
as a strategic selling point, telling the
Washington Post early this year that the
lobbying and public relations campaign
would be "helped by which parts of the
bill go into effect immediately. It's hard
to talk about things that'll happen in
2019. But if you can say to people that
if your kid is 26 years old, you can keep
him on your insurance plan? ... They get


that."
Some 20 states had already passed legislation
requiring insurers to cover adult children before the
federal rule was imposed. Citing results in New Jersey,
Wisconsin and elsewhere, many critics pointed to
how such top-down benefits mandates were driving
up the cost of insurance and limiting access instead of
expanding it. In response, top SEIU thug Dennis Rivera
accused Obamacare opponents of "terrorist tactics" in a
conference call earlier this spring with Health and Human
Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
Now, confronted with the thorny allocation of scarce
resources, profligate money managers at the SEIU are
dropping thousands of kids' health coverage because
they, too, can't afford to foot the bill imposed by the
president whom their union bosses spent more than $60
million to elect. And SEIU's Rivera is nowhere to be
found.
The SEIU also pumped tens of millions of dollars in
union funds directly into the campaign for Obamacare.

They Said It


"After the chaos and carnage of September 11th, it is not
enough to serve our enemies with legal papers."
George W. Bush

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to
regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and
shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned
this is the sum of good government."
Thomas Jefferson

"A president either is constantly on top of events or, if he
hesitates, events will soon be on top of him. I never felt that I
could let up for a moment."
Harry S. Truman

"Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance;
they are the peoples' liberty's teeth."
George Washington

"Democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply
honorable form of government ever devised by man."
Ronald Reagan

"I think when you spread the wealth around it's good for ev-
erybody."
Barack Obama

"Well, I screwed it up real good, didn't I?"
Richard M. Nixon

of what I considered a righteous man.
He changed my day from one of extreme
negativity to a learning experience. He
taught me lessons I won't soon forget.
The only question is whether my faith
is strong enough to apply the principles
he taught me to daily life. We'll see. As
I've said in previous columns, I make
no claim to sainthood. We all live in a


world where it can be a challenge to live
completely in harmony with God.
But I am trying to live by spiritual
principles. "Trying" is the key word.
I seek guidance for future activities,
and I always offer thanks when I pray.
There's plenty to be thankful for, as
this gentleman taught me. I just need a
reminder every now and then.


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


Guess who said the following: "It
is incredible that a system of
taxation which permits a man
with an income of$1,000,000 a
year to pay not one cent to his Government
should remain unaltered."
Franklin D. Roosevelt? Ted Kennedy?
Nancy Pelosi?
Not even close. It was Andrew
Mellon, Secretary of the Treasury under
conservative Republican President Calvin
Coolidge.
What was Mellon's point? That high tax
rates do not necessarily result in high tax
revenues to the government. "It is time to
face the facts," he said. Merely having high
tax rates on large incomes will not bring in
more tax revenues to the treasury, because
of "the flight of capital away from taxable
investments."
This was all said in 1924, in Mellon's
book, "Taxation: The People's Business."
Yet here we are, more than 80 years later,
still not facing those facts.
It is not just a question of what Andrew
Mellon said. It is a question of hard facts,
easily checked in official documents
available to all-- and ignored all these
years.
Internal Revenue Service data show that
there were 206 people who reported annual
incomes of one million dollars or more in
1916. But, as the tax rate on high incomes
skyrocketed under the Woodrow Wilson
administration, that number plummeted to
just 21 people reporting a million dollars a
year in income five years later.
What happened to all those
millionaires? Did they flee the country?
Were they stricken with fatal diseases? Did
they meet with foul play?
Not to worry. Right after Congress
enacted the cuts in tax rates that Mellon
had been urging, there were suddenly 207
people reporting taxable incomes of a
million dollars or more in 1925. As Casey
Stengel used to say, "You could look it up."
It is on page 21 of an Internal Revenue
publication titled "Statistics of Income
from Returns of Net Income for 1925."
Where had all the income of those
millionaires been hiding? In tax-exempt
securities like state and local bonds, among
other places. Mellon had urged Congress
to end tax exemptions for such securities,
even before he got them to cut tax rates.
But he succeeded only with the latter, and
only after a political struggle with those


who made the same kinds of arguments
that are still being made today by those
who cry out against "tax cuts for the rich."
Still, one out of two is not bad, when it
comes to getting Congress to do something
that makes sense economically, rather than
something that looks good politically.
The government, which collected less
than $50 million in taxes on capital gains
in 1924, suddenly collected well over $100
million in capital gains taxes in 1925. At
lower tax rates, it no longer made sense
to keep so much invested in tax-exempt
securities, when more money could be
made by investing in the economy.
As for "the rich"-- who really were rich
in those days, when $100,000 was worth
more than a million dollars is worth today-
those in the highest income brackets
paid 30 percent of all taxes in 1920 and 65
percent of all taxes by 1929, after "tax cuts
for the rich."
How can that be? Because high tax
rates on paper, that many people avoid,
often does not bring in as much tax
revenue as lower tax rates that more people
actually pay, after it is safe to come out of
tax shelters and earn higher rates of taxable
income.
The investors do this because it makes
them better off, on net balance, even after
they pay more money in taxes on incomes
that have gone up. More important, the
economy benefits when there is more
investment in things that create more jobs
and rising output.
None of this was unique to the 1920s.
The same scenario played out again in later
years, during the Kennedy, Reagan and
Bush 43 administrations.
But economic success is not the same
as political success. As former House
Majority Leader Dick Armey put it,
"Demagoguery beats data."
As long as the voters keep buying
the "tax cuts for the rich" demagoguery,
politicians will keep selling it. And it will
keep selling as long as it goes unanswered.
The question is whether today's
Republicans understand that as well as
Andrew Mellon did back in the 1920s.

Can Republicans talk?


Workers regurgitated White House talking points hyping
increased access, lower premiums and peace of mind for
the working class. SEIU 1199 -- which is now cutting
off health care coverage to children whose parents work
in the health care industry of all industries -- was at the
forefront of those D.C.-directed "reform" rallies. The
same militant leaders of SEIU 1199 sent hordes of their
workers on buses to an anti-tea party rally convened by
Comedy Central clowns in October, while their benefits
and pension funds eroded.
Yes, the union road to hell is paved with workers'
own hard-earned dues money. All hail progressivism!
How far we've come from the halcyon moment
when President Obama rallied young college students
at George Mason University in Virginia in March. To
wild applause, he pledged: "If you buy a new plan,
there won't be lifetime or restrictive annual limits on
the amount of care you receive from your insurance
companies. (Applause.) And by the way, to all the
young people here today, starting this year if you
don't have insurance, all new plans will allow you to
stay on your parents' plan until you are 26 years old.
(Applause.)"
Cue bitter laughter here. As I reported two weeks
ago, more than 111 unions (including two SEIU
affiliates), companies and insurers have now secured
federal waivers to escape the first provision Obama
mentioned to the George Mason University students.
And more financially strapped union affiliates like SEIU
1199 will undoubtedly be canceling children's coverage
to escape the costs tied to Obama's second vow.
For the kiddie human shields who helped the
Democrats dig their own ditch, reality bites. Live and
learn.

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
directed its staff on
Wednesday to advertise
new rule proposals
requiring all hunters to tag
harvested white-tailed deer
and report the harvest to the
FWC.
However, the
commissioners directed
staff to provide a menu of
options regarding exempt
hunters, showing how those
hunters would report their
harvest. Exempt hunters


include individuals 65 and


older and 16 and under.
Tagging and reporting
game harvests is commonly
done in many states, and
FWC staff reviewed several
other states' harvest-
reporting systems to see
what might work well in
Florida.
The FWC, along with
its stakeholders, continues
to craft a system where
hunters would report their
harvested deer, to better
track where and how
many deer are harvested in


Florida.
FWC staff presented a
draft proposal at five public
meetings across the state
and gathered input and
feedback through an online
poll.
The proposed harvest-
reporting system would
utilize a 24-hour, seven-
days-a-week telephone and
Internet system, and tags to
attach to harvested deer.
Some of the information
hunters would have to
report includes their
customer number, date of
harvest, county, method
of take, hunting with or
without dogs, type of deer
(antlered buck, button buck
or doe) and number of
antler points on bucks. All
compiled statewide harvest
data would be available
to the public online and
updated daily, but would not
include hunters' personal
information.
"We want to make
this system as friendly
as possible for Florida's
hunters," said Cory Morea,
FWC biologist and deer
management program
coordinator. "We need the
data to give Florida hunters
what many of them have
asked for that is better
management of the state's
deer herd, and at a more
local level. This will give
us one of the tools to enable
us to do that."

Chiefland loses 31-29 nailbiter to Dixie County


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Chiefland's varsity girls' basketball team used high pressure defense in the second
half to rallv from a 20-8 deficit Friday night, but the Lady Indians ran out of time before
Dixie County clinched the nail biter 31-29.
"They waited too long," said Coach Sonya Schmidt.
Schmidt, a first year varsity coach, fielded a team consisting of 3 juniors, 2
sophomores and the rest freshman.
She said the team came out sluggish in the first half using a zone defense. At halftime
she told them they needed to play better defense and rebound. When she turned the team
loose with a man-to-man defense in the third period, it seemed to ignite them.
"I just told them to go out and play defense. 1 told them ifI send you into the game,
you have to rebound," she said.
Laeshae Blaisdell's 3-point shot and her hustle defense also seemed to add a spark.
She picked up a few fouls with the physical contact, but added energy when it was
needed.
Dessie Clemons pushed the ball inside and Kidijah Bowers was able to add three
put-back baskets that kept Chiefland's momentum going as the Lady Indians ate away at
Dixie County's lead.
Charlene Davis drove to the hoop in the final minutes and dished the ball to
Shyneccia Bowers, who scored to erode Dixie County's lead to 31-29 with 16.3 seconds
left.
But Chiefland was forced to foul with 6.5 seconds left. Dixie County's H. Rhodes
went to the line and missed both free throws.
Chiefland got the ball back and drove down court for a final shot that missed just
before the buzzer sounded. The sound of the buzzer was nearly drowned out by the roar
of the crowd.
Scoring: Chiefland 2-4-7-16 -- 29; Dixie County 11-4-5-9- 31.

rebounds to lead the Indians, and Bo
Beauchamp, despite being double-
and triple-teamed all night under
the basket was able to pull down 14
rebounds and score 4 points.
Carter credited the win to "good
defense and less turnovers."
Carter's cat-quick movements on
the court and his ability to drive and
penetrate'Dixie County's defense to
find the open man were factors in the
Indians come-back win.
"He brought us back, but what
put us over it was ball movement
and defense," Boyd said.
One of the biggest plays of
the game was made by freshman
Deshawn Roland who positioned
himself well and took a charge with
32 seconds left.
Boyd said it was a huge play and
a game-changer. It prevented a score
by Dixie County and gave Chiefland
another lift, as though it needed one
in the eardrum-splitting roar of the
Chiefland and Dixie County fans.
Boyd posted up Carter in the
second half and gave the ball to
Roland to force Dixie County into a
mismatch with a quick, high-scoring
guard down low where he would be
difficult to cover. Boyd insisted his
team play their assigned roles in a
disciplined way to keep order in a
fast paced and chaotic game.
But relentless and disciplined
defense gave Chiefland the
opportunities it needed.
"We wore on them. We got some
calls and got some turnovers," Boyd
said.

Hamilton said he allowed

Disputed call haunts

Bronson Lady Eagles

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
A close game between Bronson and Trenton
turned into a 15-point loss for the Lady Eagles when
a close call at center court with 4 minutes left sent
one of the team's best players to the bench with five
fouls Nov. 30.
Bronson's Brianna Mitchell appeared to be in
an ideal position to catch the ball at midcourt, but
when she did, a Trenton player grabbed the ball.
Mitchell was called for a foul. The Bronson crowd
groaned.
Without Mitchell. a strong 7"' grader, Bronson
had no presence under the basket and could not stay
with the more experienced and older Lady Tigers.
Bronson had to go to its bench for a replacement.
The Lady Tigers won 53-38.
Trenton is a team that went 18-1 last year. They
appear to be on the path to another good season.
Bronson is a talented, but young team. Coach
Greg Hamilton started a 7'1 grader, two 8"' graders,
a 9"' grader and a 10"' grader. In larger schools, this
would be a young junior varsity team.
It's a team with plenty of spunk. Hamilton sets
the bar high. The team hustled on defense against
Trenton.
The score was 12-11 after the first period and
22-17 at the half. Bronson trailed 38-30 going into
the fourth period. Bronson closed the gap to 38-34
but couldn't maintain the momentum.

Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Chiefland's suffocating defense and its ownership
of the defensive paint gave the team an emotional 48-
44 victory Friday night in front of a standing room
only crowd in Chiefland.
It was the first win as a varsity coach for Coach
Adam Boyd who remained relatively calm at courtside
despite the deafening roar of the crowd and the
changing fortunes of the team as it first lost the lead
and later battled to get it back and win. ,
Apparently Dixie County fans knew it would
be a challenging game. They began filing into the
gymnasium in large numbers before the game began
and early into the first period until they filled the
west side bleachers and most of one end of the gym.
Chiefland fans were there in equal numbers.
The electricity in the air was present before the
first shot was taken. Neither team had any intention of
giving ground. Dixie County was confident. Chiefland
was determined.
Indian point guard, Eugene "Pee Wee" Carter
performed his court magic, scoring 29 points and 10

g Lady Red Devils can't get past Santa Fe


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor


Williston's Ericka Floyd drives against Kaitlian Deustch
of Santa Fe.


Without star point guard Erica Mason in uniform, the
Williston Lady Red Devils were at a big disadvantage
Friday against Santa Fe. And with the Lady Raiders'
Kaitlian Deustch hitting virtually every Shot she took,
Williston was essentially without a chance.
Deustch hit four three-point shots en route to a 21-
point performance as Santa Fe outgunned the Lady Red
Devils 64-29 in District 5-3A action at Williston.
Mason sat out the game after coming down with
a bug, and Williston could not find the right mix of
playmakers without her, according to first-year head
coach Denise Lahusky.
"We just didn't have any team chemistry out there,"
she said. "We just couldn't get our minds on the game,


so we struggled."
Early on at least in the game's first minute -
Williston found a little rhythm. Lateria Walker connected
on a three-point shot from the left corner, and the Lady
Red Devils led 3-0.
But Santa Fe (3-2, 3-0) countered by scoring the next
eight points of the game. Deustch and Melissa Green hit
a layup apiece, and Carolyn Holmes and Kylie Snead
each connected on a short jumper to put their team up
8-3 with 4:09 left in the first quarter.
Williston got a layup from Nay Nay Williams, but
Deustch struck again, this time from long range, to give
Santa Fe an 11-5 advantage. Green made a layup and
Snead hit a free throw, and by the time Walker connected
on one of two free throws for Williston, Santa Fe led 14-
