L evy County
Commissioners voted
Tuesday, January 4 to
grant a conditional
use permit to develop land
in northeast Williston for a
"Cowboy Church," described
as a "place of worship in which
sermons may be preached on
horseback." Rodeos and other
cowboy events can also be held
on the grounds. The property
to be developed is located north
of US 27A and NE 162 Court.
The original zoning on the
property was Agriculture/Rural
Residential, and contains 25.7
acres for the project.
Pastor Billy Keith of Cross
Brand Cowboy Church said the
church plans to build an arena on
the property first, since worship
can take place under the trees.
Ihe church currently holds events
and services at the Williston
Horseman's Park off CR 41.
Pastor Billy said youth rodeo
is the main focus for the arena,
which will be the first structure
completed on the site.
Cowboy Church is a mission of
the Baptist Association and Otter
Creek Baptist Church. Cowboy
is affiliated with the American
Fellowship of Cowboy Church.
A packed commission meeting
sat politely as commissioners
and staff discussed two potential
impacts of the project-the
times of operation for church-
related rodeo activities and the
maintenance and repair of NE
162 Court due to the anticipated
increased wear caused by trucks,
trailers, and other vehicular
traffic.
The two conditions
were debated at length by
commissioners concerned about

he mammals for which Manatee Springs State Park was
named decades ago didn't pay a visit to the spring in
August, September and October of this year, and during
December's super cold snap, few of those that visited
ventured into the warm waters of the spring boil.
Biologists for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission say they are
not worried about manatees staying away from the spring boil during
the cold weather. They haven't seen any cold-stressed animals in this
area of Florida.
"The manatees don't always like to swim against the flow," said
Carol Knox, biological administrator for FWC in the manatee
program. At Manatee Springs, she said manatees like to bed down
against an earthen shelf near the mouth of the spring.
"They still get the warmer spring water, but it's not in the current,"
she said.
Manatee Springs Park Manager Sally Lieb said water levels are low
in the spring run and manatees are not seen as often in the spring run
and spring boil when the water is low, but she said they can still access
the spring boil.
Lieb said they might be coming into the spring at night, but she is
not there every night to check.
"When they are there and actively working against that endless
current you hear the b ... rh-; n i_, and on full moons you can see them
in the moonlight," Lieb wrote in an e-mail. "I have not seen them or
heard them up in the spring during the past several months when I
checked at night. However, I don't spend the whole night there either.
We have seen them in the main spring in the early morning during
past winters over the years, but again, the level at those times was
usually higher than we're seeing now."
Manatees are an endangered species. They are warm-blooded and
nurse their young. They need the warm water of springs to survive
cold weather. Springs produce 72 degree water all year long. Manatees

the noise and light affecting
nearby residents and the effect of
traffic on the maintenance of NE
162 Court.
In the end, Commissioner Chad
Johnson made a motion to amend
the time condition to reflect a
"suggested" time for scheduled
activities: Monday through
Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
and weekends from 9 a.m. to 9
p.m. This softens the condition,
while the commission decides if
any other action is necessary to
restrict hours of operations based
on legitimate complaints made by
residents and others.
Similarly, the commission
supported the notion to take a
"wait-and-see" attitude about
how anticipated vehicular traffic
will affect the condition of the
graded road that will be the
primary access to the property.


Commissioners voted to amend
the condition to allow the county
to act if the quality of the road
deteriorates. The condition calls
for the "reconstruction" of the
road to the state it was in at its
"best level of development."
So, if the now graded road is

paved in the future and requires
reconstruction as determined by
the county, the church and the
commission will revisit methods
to accomplish this at the time.
The commission expressed the
desire to help the church with this
condition, should the need arise.


breathe air. They must push their nose out of the water to pull in air.
Manatee Springs is a powerful and productive spring. The spring
has been producing an average of 94 million gallons of water per
day since 2002. It is a first magnitude spring. A first magnitude
spring must produce a minimum of 64.6 million gallons daily to be
considered first magnitude.
Water levels in the spring run are low because the Suwannee River
is flowing at near record low levels. In the recorded history of the
river dating back to the 1930s, the Suwannee River has been this low
only 5 percent of the time. Manatee Springs empties into the river.
When the river is high it acts like a dam, pushing against the spring,
slowing the flow and raising water levels in the spring, according to
Megan Wetherington, hydrologist with the Suwannee River Water
Management District. That damming effect disappears when river
levels are low.
"When the river is as low as it is now, there's nothing pushing
against the spring water as it comes out," she said.
The Suwannee River is entirely spring fed at this point, due to lack
of rainfall, ,..,:.rdring mr \ rl.:X in 1nr..1 Groundwater is providing
the entire flow of the river. Groundwater emerges from the Floridan
Aquifer and spews out of spring vents like the one at Manatee and
flow to the river.
Manatee Springs has become a magnet for divers and diving
schools. Divers use the spring boil and a spring opening known as
Catfish Hotel for diving. The diving goes on all year long. During
the period from February 2009 through November 2010, an average
of 227 divers per month used the spring boil and Catfish Hotel.
The number of divers doesn't slow during the winter months when
manatees use the spring run and boil as a warm water sanctuary.
Ron Mezich, a biological scientist for FWC, doesn't think the
divers are discouraging manatees from entering the spring boil.
Mizich agrees with Knox that the animals prefer to be at the mouth of
the river. He notes they have found no manatees suffering from cold
stress in this area of Florida.
"If we thought there was an issue, we would discuss it with the
park," he said.

Fanning Springs Market

Armed Robbery Suspects

On December 12 at approximately 9:50 a.m., three men entered the Tienda Mexicana
Mart in Fanning Springs. All three subjects were armed with handguns. Sheriff's
deputies have one suspect in custody. Suspects at large include two Hispanic males, one
appears to be tall; the second is described as short, and heavy set. It is believed the men












are the same men who robbed the store a month ago and pistol whipped the clerk.

One of the men arrested for using a tire
iron to rob a Fanning Springs gas station
on Sept. 23 has been sentenced to 10 years
in state prison, while his partner is awaiting
arraignment on Jan. 12.
Jeremiah Alan Ware, 25, Fanning
Springs, took a plea deal from prosecutors
and agreed to the 10-year sentence.
"He was probably looking at a lot more
time and decided to take the deal and get
it over with," said Danny Riffle, who heads
the criminal investigation division at the
Levy County Sheriff's Office.
Eric Alan Burke, 25, Trenton,
cooperated with investigators by giving
them a confession. He was arrested Dec.
23 on a warrant charging him with robbery
with a firearm and grand theft.
A tip led investigators to Burke's home at
8620 S.W. 82nd Court.
The two men entered the Citgo
station at 8731 N.W. 174th St., Fanning
Springs, wearing hooded sweat shirts and
neckerchiefs to conceal their faces. The
taller of the two, Ware, was armed with a
tire iron.
"They approached the front counter and
the taller of the two held up a tire iron in a
threatening manner and made statements
that he would kill the clerk if he did not
comply. Ihey demanded the money out of
the register..," a sheriffs office investigative
report said.
Ware and Burke left the store carrying
a cardboard box containing cigarettes and

$525 cash. Sheriffs office tracking dogs
were brought to the scene, but the dogs
lost the trail when N.W. 89th Terrace
ended in a grassy area. Security cameras
recorded the robbery, but the two men had
concealed their faces. Burke said he spent
his money on necessities, including diapers
for his child.
Burke said the robbery developed when
Ware came over to his home and suggested
they do a "lick," which Burke knew as a
word that meant a robbery or theft. Ware
told investigators he hadn't eaten in three
days and said the robbery was his idea. He
later denied the robbery was his idea. He
acquired a tire iron somewhere. Burke gave
Ware a gray hooded sweatshirt and dark-
colored neckerchief to wear during the
robbery. Burke dressed in a blue "Florida"
jacket with a hood and a pink neckerchief.
When they arrived at the gas station,
the clerk was cleaning the parking lot and
emptying trash cans. They followed him
inside, with Ware brandishing the tire
iron. After the clerk gave them the cash,
Burke told the clerk to put the cash drawer
on the floor. When the clerk bent down,
they made their getaway on foot. Burke
discarded the cigarettes they had stolen
because they weren't his brand. Ware threw
the tire iron in the Suwannee River. When
they returned to Burke's home they burned
the hooded sweatshirts and neckerchiefs in
a burn area on the Burke property.
The investigation progressed at an
unusually rapid rate after, the tipster led
investigators to the men who committed
the crime and Burke gave a detailed
confession, according to.the sheriffs office.

The Great Cattle Drive


We were talking about what
some historians have
termed the largest cattle
drive in the history of the
US. This was not Texas, not longhorns, but
Florida and Cracker cattle. This was Levy
County, 1929. The markets in Havana had
gone bad; the threat of tick fever was on.
The bottom was dropping out of the cattle
market in Florida and a couple of buyers,
the Miller brothers, presenting themselves
as humble farmers from out west, showed
up. They got the word out that they
were looking for "a few head." They'd be
shipping out of Eugene, they said, a little
settlement north of the Suwannee.
"This is where they'd come across,"
James Beauchamp told me. "Right along
here, where the water is shallower. There
used to be planks, you could still see in the
water where they'd bring'em up this bluff
here."
We stood just north of the bridge over
the Suwannee at Fanning. Beauchamp,
one of the last survivors of the old-time
cow hunters, pointed out across the coffee-
colored water. "They'd have held them up
over there, then bring'um across a bunch
at time. That's how we did it down in the
Hammock."
He was referring to Gulf Hammock,
once a vast, lush crescent of wild Florida.
Beauchamp cow-hunted there in the '30s
with his father, Willie. He later worked
as a cowboy for Mr. O. L. Smith, who
would become his pa- in- law. That's when
James "moved from the bunk house to the
big house," when he married Smith's only
daughter, Annie Gene.


Mr. Smith owned one of Levy County's
largest herds in those days, but there were
others whose cows ranged the hammock
and Suwannee Valley. These were families
with names like Parton, Clyatt, Hiers and
Cobb. Old Levy families, to name a few.
I asked James to tell me what he saw,
what he heard. I asked him to imagine all
those cattle coming again, this great herd,
greater than any he'd ever seen, by now
some 36,000 head.
James Beauchamp knows the crack of a
bull whip, the yip of a good cow dog. He
knows the rough stock we've come lately to
call Cracker cattle, but back in his day they
were just woods cows, scrub or pineywoods
cows, native cattle. These were the rangy
descendants of the old Spanish cattle, now
well adapted to the briars, heat, insects and
humidity of the Florida lowlands.
"You'd hear them whips crack a mile
away, the dogs working and then that low
moan." James Beauchamp demonstrates
the lowing sound of the cattle coming;
the long, moan of the cow, the echoing
bellow of the bulls driven ahead. Out of
his recollections the broad-brimmed hats
of raw-boned cowboys appear above the
palmettos. They are yelping, punching the
cows forward and rounding up the strays.
These are men used to sleeping on the
ground beside a low fire, men fed on flat
bread and beans. They ride lanky horses of
most every description; be rolls, slickers
and camp gear tied behind them.
The drovers push the herd on; thousands
of head out of the piney woods beneath
the tall cypress. Hawks, great blue herons,
osprey scatter from the treetops. Now they

Promises and Riots


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


economists are the .
real "party of No."
They keep saying
that there is no -
such thing as a free lunch--
and politicians keep on
getting elected by promising ...
free lunches.
Such promises may seem '
to be kept, for a while. There
are ways the government
can juggle money around to
make everything look OK,
but it is only a matter of time before that money runs out
and the ultimate reality hits, that there is no free lunch.
We are currently seeing what happens, in fierce riots
raging in various countries in Europe, when the money
runs out and the brutal truth is finally revealed, that there
is no free lunch.
You cannot have generous welfare state laws that allow
people to retire on government pensions while they are in
their 50s, in an era when most people live decades longer.
In the United States, that kind of generosity exists
mostly for members of state government employees'
unions-- which is why some states are running out of
money, and why the Obama administration is bailing
them out, in the name of "stimulus."
Once you buy the idea that the government should be
a sort of year-around Santa Claus, you have bought the
kinds of consequences that follow.
The results are not pretty, as we can see on TV, in
pictures of rioters in the streets, smashing and burning the


property of innocent people, who had nothing to do with
giving them unrealistic hopes of living off somebody else,
or with the inevitable disappointing of those hopes with
cutbacks on the giveaways.
Nothing is easier for politicians than to play Santa
Claus by promising benefits, without mentioning the
costs-- or lying about the costs and leaving it to future
governments to figure out what to do when the money
runs out.
In the United States, the biggest and longest-running
scam of this sort is Social Security. Fulfilling all the
promises that were made, as commitments in the law,
would cost more money than Social Security has ever had.
This particular scam has kept going for generations by
the fact that the first generation-- a small generation--
that paid into Social Security had its pensions paid by
the money that the second and much bigger "baby boom"
generation paid in.
What the first generation got back in benefits was far
greater than what they themselves had paid in. It was
something for nothing-- apparently.
This is the way a Ponzi scheme works, with the first
wave of "investors" getting paid with the money paid in by
the second wave. But, like Social Security, a Ponzi scheme
creates no wealth but only an illusion that cannot last.
That is why Mr. Ponzi was sent to prison. But politicians
get re-elected for doing the same thing.
now fewer working people per retired person to pay for
Social Security pensions, this scam is likewise headed for
a rude revelation of reality-- and perhaps riots like those
in Europe.
All the incentives are for politicians to do what they
have done, namely to promise benefits without raising
enough taxes to pay for them. That way, it looks like you
are getting something for nothing.


When crunch time comes and politicians are either
going to have to tell people the truth or raise taxes, the
almost inevitable choice is to raise taxes. If the people
think they are already taxed too much, then the taxes can
be raised only for people designated as "the rich."
If "the rich" object, then demagogues can denounce
them for their selfishness and "greed" for objecting to
turning over ever-growing amounts of what they have
earned to politicians.
Economists often make stronger objections than the
high-income people themselves. That is because history
has shown repeatedly that very high rates of taxation
lead to all sorts of ways by which those very high rates of
taxation do not have to be paid.
No matter how high the tax rates are, they do not
bring in more revenue when many of the people subject
to those tax rates do not in fact pay them. The scams
inherent in welfare states are not only economically
counterproductive, they turn group against group,
straining the ties that hold a society together.

Big Labor's

Snowmageddon Snit Fit


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


once shared a motto about the
blessings of work: "Industry
produces wealth, God speed
the plow." Indolent New York City union
officials who oversee snow removal
apparently live by a different creed: Sloth
enhances political power, Da Boss slow the
plow.
Come rain or shine, wind, sleet or
blizzard, Big Labor leaders always
demonstrate perfect power-grabby timing
when it comes to shafting taxpayers.
Public-sector unions are all-weather
vultures ready, willing and able to put
special interest politics above the citizenry's
health, wealth and safety. Confirming
rumors that have fired up the frozen
metropolis, the New York Post reported
Thursday that government sanitation and
transportation workers were ordered by
union supervisors to oversee a deliberate
slowdown of its cleanup program -- and to
boost their overtime paychecks.
Why such vindictiveness? It's a cold-
blooded temper tantrum against the city's
long-overdue efforts to trim layers of union
fat and move toward a more efficient, cost-
effective privatized workforce.
Welcome to the Great Snowmageddon
Snit Fit of 2010.
New York City Councilman Dan
Halloran, R-Queens, told the Post that
several brave whistleblowers confessed to
him that they "were told (by supervisors)
to take off routes (and) not do the plowing
of some of the major arteries in a timely
manner. They were told to make the mayor
pay for the layoffs, the reductions in rank
for the supervisors, shrinking the rolls of
the rank-and-file."
Denials and recriminations are flying
like snowballs. But even as they scoff at
reports of this outrageous organized job
action, the city sanitation managers' unions
openly acknowledge their grievances and
"resentment" over job cuts. Stunningly,
sanitation workers spilled the beans on
how city plowers raised blades "unusually
high" (which requires extra passes to get
their work done) and refused to plow
anything other than assigned streets (even
if it meant leaving behind clogged routes to
get to their blocks).
When they weren't sitting on their
backsides, city plowers were caught on
videotape maniacally destroying parked
vehicles in a futile display of Kabuki
Emergency Theater. It would be laugh-out-
loud comedy if not for the death of at least
one newborn whose parents waited for
an ambulance that never came because of
snowed-in streets.
This isn't a triumphant victory for
socialjustice and workers' dignity. This is
terrifying criminal negligence.
And it isn't the first time New York
City sanitation workers have endangered
residents' well-being. In the 1960s, a
Teamsters-affiliated sanitation workers'
strike led to trash fires, typhoid warnings


and rat
infestations,
as 100,000
tons of
rotting i
garbage piled
up. Three
decades later,
a coordinated
job action by
city building-
service
workers and sanitation workers caused
another public trash nuisance declared
"dangerous to life and health" in the Big
Apple.
New Yorkers could learn a thing or
two from those of us who call Colorado
Springs, Colo., home. We have no fear of
being held hostage to a politically driven
sanitation department -- because we have
no sanitation department. We have no
sanitation department because enlightened
advocates of limited government in our
town realized that competitive bidders
in the private sector could provide better
service at lower cost.
And we're not alone. As the Mackinac
Center for Public Policy in Michigan
reported: "The largest study ever conducted
on outsourced garbage collection,
conducted by the federal government in the
1970s, reported 29 to 37 percent savings
in cities with populations over 50,000.
A 1994 study by the Reason Foundation
discovered that the city of Los Angeles
was paying about 30 percent more for
garbage collection than its surrounding
suburbs, in which private waste haulers
were employed. A 1982 study of city
garbage collection in Canada discovered an
astonishing 50 percent average savings as a
result of privatization."
Completely privatized trash collection
means city residents don't get socked
with the bill for fraudulently engineered
overtime pay, inflated pensions and gold-
plated health benefits in perpetuity -- not
to mention the capital and operating costs
of vehicles and equipment. The Colorado
Springs model, as city councilman Sean
Paige calls it, is a blueprint for how every
city can cope with budget adversity while
freeing itself from thuggish union threats
when contracts expire or cuts are made.
Those who dawdled on privatization efforts
in better times are suffering dire, deadly
consequences now.
Let the snow-choked streets of New
York be a lesson for the rest of the nation:
It's time to put the Big Chill on Big Labor-
run municipal services.

Losing family businesses

has devastating impact

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The United States is rapidly being corporatized.
he destruction of family businesses and farms in this country and the
dominance of large national and regional corporations is not a positive
influence on the country in my view. Family businesses are being pushed
out by large corporations. Americans are losing their influence in
Washington as corporate giants are buying influence to control the legislative process.
An Associated Press story Wednesday said the only job growth this year among
American corporations was overseas. More than half the people Caterpillar Inc.
hired this year were outside the United States, according to AP. The shipping of
American jobs overseas began 30 years ago and has resulted in the loss of millions of
American jobs.
The transfer of American jobs overseas is part of the reason the unemployment rate
remains at 9.8 percent in this country. We remain in a recession because the spending
power of the American people is being lost as incomes drop and jobs become scarce.
Add to that the rise in fuel prices at the pump and you have a recipe for disaster.
Driving through Deland the other day, I was struck by the remarkable changes in
the landscape, including the addition of a shiny new Racetrac corporate gas station
on a hilltop along Highway 17. The last time I drove through Deland it wasn't there.
Racetrac has slightly lower gasoline prices than many competitors, but not that much
lower. A small convenience store gas station that once stood across the road has
disappeared and been replaced by a CVS corporate drug store. Across the road d large
corporate shopping center sprung up from a stand of trees.
The old mom and pop gas station owners of the past are pretty much gone. My
friend Fred Worthington of Fred's BP recently passed away, I'm sorry to say. Fred
was a fine gentleman. He fixed my cars and sold me gas for years, as did Alvis Lane
up the road. Alvis was another southern gentleman. He warned about the coming
of corporate America. I used to chew that fat with Alvis. He was a great thinker.
Alvis and Fred ran gas stations during an era when the owners themselves would
walk out and wash your windows and fill your car as you sat there and waited for
them to finish. Full service at gas stations was expected and gas was still 30 cents per
gallon. Fred and Alvis were good family men, good community members, and they
were business owners you knew by their first names. They were the very opposite of
Racetrac.
In the modern world, large corporations with common interests form business
alliances that represent them in Washington and in state legislatures. The oil and gas
industry is no exception. Oil companies, natural gas companies and gasoline retail
giants lobby in Washington from different ends of the spectrum, but they all want
the same thing higher gas prices at the pump. And they get it.
You may have noticed the multi-billion dollar natural gas pipeline being
constructed through Levy County. It starts somewhere around Texas and Louisiana
and will end in south Florida where corporate power companies will buy the gas. I
have to believe the builders of this pipeline will need high prices for natural gas to
repay the considerable debt involved in building it. The consumer you and me -
ultimately will foot the bill for this big pipeline through higher power bills at our
homes and businesses.
The American worker and the American consumer are largely spectators when
it comes to influencing decisions about the oil and gas market. The corporate oil,
gas and pipeline companies, and the big retail gas giants I suspect have a great deal
more influence over the oil and gas pricing than the average consumer in small town
America.
The same is true of the corporate giants that have been shipping jobs overseas for
decades. They don't want to deal with American unions, and I can't blame them,
because unions raise costs. They don't want to deal with American taxation, because
it's another overhead cost that takes away from the bottom line, and the don't want
to deal with our regulations, so they move overseas to get a sweet deal from the
Mexicans, Chinese or Europeans. Meanwhile, Americans suffer for lack ofjobs. I
suspect the latest free trade agreement with South Korea, which President Obama
signed with much fanfare, will be another vehicle for shipping jobs overseas and
importing cars, trucks, appliances and cell phones from South Korea. The agreement
lifts 85 percent of the tariffs for both nations. But if you read between the lines and
know our history, it means more jobs will be shipped to South Korea to manufacture
goods and services for Americans. What a shame. President George W. Bush
initiated the free trade agreement before he left office. Obama is making sure it
becomes law.
My personal opinion is Congress and the President care nothing about the average
Joe out there. They need these large corporate donors to finance their expensive
television commercials during campaigns. Washington politicians, particularly
presidential candidates, can ill afford to offend the people that feed them with money.
The American people are fed up. They threw the Republicans out of office in 2006
when they sold out the American people. I think Americans have figured out that the

Democrats in Washington are of the same ilk. They nearly
threw the Democrats out of power in the November
election. The election changed the balance of power in
Washington. How much it changed remains to be seen.
The power brokers in Washington haven't figured out
yet that mom and pop businesses are the backbone of
the country. They don't mind giving corporate America
cheap interest rates and big bailouts, but they won't do
the same for the mom and pop businesses. I talked to a
restaurant owner not long ago who said that a 3 percent
interest rate on the debt he owes for his restaurant would
help immensely. But he has no voice in Washington
or Tallahassee. The powerbrokers in Washington and
Tallahassee are listening to the corporate world and not to
the little man.
We'll have to wait to see whether the Republicans who
will control the U.S. House of Representatives beginning
in January understood the message from the November
election. The American people want their interests
represented for a change, not just corporate America.
Republicans need to mount a powerful campaign to help
small family businesses in this country if they want to
turn around the economy and bring us out of a recession.
They need to bring jobs back to this country. They need
to cut gasoline prices in half. If that means changing laws
and giving tax breaks, then do it.
The mom and pop businesses are disappearing in this
country because they have no voice in the American
Congress. They aren't being given the big tax breaks.
They are being stepped on by the American Congress. It's
time for a change of attitude in the nation's capitol and in
Tallahassee. Let's see small family businesses and family
farms get some big breaks for a change.
If that happens, maybe we'll see the end of the recession.

Standing Upright Before God


(Parti)

upright antique piano $100'. I called
the number. I'd been hankering to
join that upper echelon who boasts
a piano in their cramped living room. Some
sleepy sounding fellow answered, which was
odd, it being late afternoon. I asked him if I
could come over and kick around under the
hood. After a heavy sigh, then what I surmised
to be a yawn, he finally managed, "Ohhhkay".
"Doesn't sound in tune," I said plunking
down on the faded yellow keys. The sleepy But An
seller's expression never changed. He just with
scratched himself, wiped his nose on his
pajama sleeve, and shrugged. I didn't figure this fellow to
be too bright, so I offered him seventy five bucks. Sleepy
looked even more confused, if that was possible, maybe
even a little dopey. "I'll have to ask my mom when she gets
home," he muttered, "She said she was hoping to get sixty
out of it."
Suddenly the piano looked a lot nicer to me. I slapped
three twenties on him and asked if he'd help me load it
up. You should've seen Sleepy's jaw drop at the mention
of work. He began mumbling something about what time
his momma got home. I just shook my head and walked
out to back my truck up to the door.
I grunted and heaved and pulled most every muscle
in my body scooting that four hundred pound chunk of
junk out the door. It was enough to cause a fellow to have
second thoughts, especially when I noticed how easily its
finish peeled off on the door jam.
Once outside we took a break. Of course I say 'we'
lightly. I was sweating like a New Orleans cab driver.
Sleepy hadn't even bothered to set down his coffee cup.
Mostly he'd just stood there sighing repeatedly. In fact, I
had to threaten him to finally get him to help me lift one
end up onto the tailgate.
As I was giving one last herniated push to slide it
aboard I heard a metallic thud behind me. It was a
deadbolt slapping into place. It seems Sleepy secretly
slipped silently inside. (Say that three times real fast!)


Since I hadn't thought to bring any tie
downs, I purposed to drive it down the
steep yard at a snail's pace. Everything was
going fine until my front wheels edged
off the curb. Then the whole truck tilted
violently and there was a huge 'BLAM'!
S My new'upright' was now officially a
'down-wrong'.
I rushed out to survey the damage. It
was substantial. The foot pedals had fallen
off. Splintered wood lay all over the truck
yway... bed. I climbed in and tried to wrestle it
Guy Sheffield back upright, but I hadn't the strength.
Up at the house I noticed the curtains
suspiciously wiggling shut. It was then I experienced one
of those rare moments of clarity, "I should just dump this
thing off right here on the curb and cut my losses." I gave
it serious thought, but sadly, dismissed the idea and drove
it on home. I guess mere fleeting moments of sanity were
never enough to penetrate my thick skull back in those days.
The story doesn't stop there, but I reckon I will for now.
Because before I go I'd like to ask you one question. Is
your life making music? Or does everything just seem
to be out of tune in your heart? Maybe you've got it all
'down-wrong'? You've got to be careful you know, sleepy
satan's craftier than he looks. He'd love nothing better
than to pawn off a heavy load on you with no intention of
helping you carry it.
Listen, the best deal is getting 'upright' with God. The
only way to do that is to give your life to Jesus. (Some trust
in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the
name of the LORD our God. They are brought down and
fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Psalms 20:7-8
KJV)
But anyway- I'll tell you the rest of the story later. In the
meantime, why don't you just save yourself a lot of grief
and let this be one of those skull penetrating moments of
clarity for you?

Boys Ranch offers teenage boys


opportunities to rebuild their lives

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Ranger Colt is a 14-year-old that plans to join the U.S.
Air Force when he graduates from high school. Colt is well
mannered and dresses appropriately. His grades are good.
He is going home in January to resume life with his mother, -, '
a single mom and professional therapist.
Colt is one of the success stories at the Florida Sheriffs
Boys Ranch, a facility set among rolling hills north of Live .. '
Oak, Fla. The campus is part of a 3,400-acre cattle ranch B lo
that resembles a college campus. A brick school stands at @.| '
the center of activities and brick buildings connected by
paved streets give the appearance of a small city. A brick
school gymnasium is not far from the school. .
The boys look like teen-age boys one might find at any '
high school. As for Colt, it would be difficult to imagine
him being anything other than a polite young man with .a -
a bright future. But Colt volunteered to live at the Boys ,
Ranch because he had problems. .. .
"What brought me here was my anger and school '
problems," he said. "They've taught me to control my anger '
and brought my grades up." o rerr I i.,n ...... ?,-
The Boys Ranch is an intervention program aimed at -
redirecting the lives of boys and preventing them from ,
falling into juvenile delinquency. The boys must volunteer a. ..
to take part in the program or they are not accepted. They ..
live in homes with cottage parents. The boys work on the ....
ranch with cattle or in trade programs on campus, such as
auto mechanics. The ranch's educational programs are top ,
flight and are associated with the Suwannee County School ,':.. ; .
District. 7' . '
"Our boys, if they graduate, are often on their own, so
we try to prepare them so they can live independently,"
said School Principal Susan Mafatt. The school offers a full ,
curriculum to bring the boys up to their class level. '4 1 '
Boys living at the ranch are from grades 6-12. They
learn what it's like to live in a wholesome environment
with cottage parents who offer guidance and structure. Air' ' 1' .
Approximately 50 boys live at the ranch at any time. The 8 ...
cottages are large brick homes with spacious dining areas ..'
and kitchens, and enough rooms to house 10 boys. The -".
ranch is fenced to keep cattle from roaming behind the
ranch's boundaries, not to confine the boys. They can leave ..
at any time. -
Colt lives in the Howard House with his Mom and Pop,
Georgette and Steve Bryant, formerly of Chiefland. He .
lives with the Bryants and 9 other boys. Steve, some may -
remember, was the manager of the Chiefland Wal-Mart
Supercenter and a former Chiefland city commissioner.
The Bryants raised their own children and thought they .
would become typical grandparents, living in their own' '
home alone for a change with no kids to care for. They
figured Steve would continue making big money in retail 4
continued page 7


Cattle Drive, from page 3
are lunging down the sandy bank out into the syrupy
river. The hooves of the cows rake the river bottom. Then
they are swimming the deeper gap, their thick necks
craning to keep their horned heads above water. The
cattle find the mucky bottom again and are driven on up
the other side, the Dixie County side. That's when, later
in the day, all hell broke loose. That's when the stampede
started.
A.D. Andrews, whose Levy County family was one
of the first to breed Brahman cows into their herd, has a
theory about what caused the stampede. The river bank
there, on the Dixie side, is high and forms a narrow bluff
that drops rapidly to a slough behind. Andrews says with
that many cows pushing in on top of each other down
the descending grade, they were bound to panic and


explode out of there. It's just his theory, of course, but a
very plausible one from a man who knows cows and that
particular terrain.
There is scarce reporting on the incident. So, all we
know for sure is that the river swamp was suddenly filled
with rampant, wild-eyed cows by the hundreds. It took
considerable time for these experienced cow hunters to
get control, but they did. The drive continued up through
Old Town, and on to the cattle pens on the sidings at
Eugene.
According to a 1929 Time magazine report, in which
the Levy County episode is mentioned, some 800 cattle
cars were loaded for shipment. Most went west, most out
to the Miller brother's place, which we now know to be
the famous 101 Ranch, out of Ponca City, Oklahoma.


"They're all gone now," Beauchamp told me. "But
that's where the pens were, big holding pens with a shoot
for loading into the train cars." We stood on the long
black ribbon of asphalt; Rails to Trails now. But once
this was where the Atlantic Coastline once ran down
across the river, South out of the sand hills, hammocks
and swamps of Levy County. Here was a man that knew
those woods; he knew the old roads and trials. He knows
where the commissaries were, where the pens and rail
sidings were. That's important, especially now that the
woods are not the same woods, the roads have changed,
the trails grown over. There are no more commissaries,
the pens have fallen away. The sidings are gone and so are
the rails that once carried west the largest cattle drive in
US history.

Boys Ranch Facts
The Florida Sheriffs
Boys Ranch in Live
Oak is part of a larger
organization known
as the Florida Sheriffs
Youth Ranches,
Inc., which operates
residential programs
throughout the state.
The programs are primarily
supported by voluntary
gifts and donations
from other states, even
though it serves Florida
residents.
The Youth Ranches also
receive some support
from other public
sources which enhances
efforts to help the
children in their care.
Donations are down due to
the recession.
The average length of stay
at the youth ranch is
14 months. Increased
emphasis upon working
with families while
youth ranch employees
work with youth has
dramatically decreased
the average length
of stay. The goal is to
reunite youth with their
families if possible.
If there is no family and
youth ranches are
unable to find a suitable
alternative, the youth
may remain with the
program until they are
ready to enter the adult
world on their own.
Youth must have
willingness and
motivation to work on
personal problems and
have no alcohol or drug
dependency. They must
be recommended by the
sheriff of the county of
residence.

management. \hen someone saw an advertisement for
cottage parents at the Boys Ranch, and mentioned it to
them, Georgette didn't think it would fit with their lifestyle.
Now she wouldn't be anywhere else.
"To me, this is the best program a child could be in,"
Georgette said.
Life is not always a bed of roses in the Brvant cottage.
One night recently at the supper table, one of the boys
wasn't cooperating. To defuse the situation, the Bryants
imposed the Ranch 3-minute rule. All the boys have 3
minutes to go to their bedrooms. The uncooperative boy
refused to obey, but he eventually relented and went to his
room. He had to stay there for a while until his behavior
improved.
Georgette cooks for 12 people every day, a task in itself.
Feeding that many people means planning well in advance.
Their brick home stands on a hill and overlooks a pine forest.
The home looks like it belongs in an upscale subdivision.
A fire was burning in the living room fireplace when the
Journal arrived. Steve was consulting with a Boys Ranch
official concerning the spiritual mission of the home.
When visitors arrive at the Boys Ranch, the boys are
known only by their first names. They are called Ranger
Colt or Ranger Wayne, etc. During a visit by the Journal
the week before Christmas, longtime Boys Ranch supporter
Winnelle Home accompanied aJournal reporter for a tour
of the ranch. They watched the boys perform a Christmas
nativity skit for staff and guests. The 20-minute program,
complete with actors dressed in the roles of Mary and Joseph
and the three Magi, was performed in a cold wind. No one
complained. A choir of boys sang Christmas carols. The
entire presentation appeared to have been well rehearsed,
including the choir music.
Colt works on the ranch for Farm Manager Jeff Parker.
The boys grow hay and bail about 3,000 round bales and
3,000 square bales for a herd of about 300 cattle. Some of
the hay is sold when the market is good. The boys brand
and tag the cattle, operate the farm tractors and hay baling
equipment, and build or repair fences when needed.
"We try to operate the way a real ranch operates," Parker
said. "They take a lot of pride in the work."
The boys participate in team roping competitions. They
also participate in horse trail rides. A trail system extends
around the edge of the ranch and along the Suwannee River.
They call the trails the Florida Boys Ranch Equestrian
Trails. The Boys Ranch is beginning to let them give guided
trail rides. In their spare time, which is rare, some of the
ranch workers like to saddle up Jake, a friendly ox.
Boys also learn how to use draft horses on the farm. They
do western riding, crack bull whips and learn cattle breeding
techniques.
"I've enjoyed it. I've learned a lot," Colt said.
Georgette Bryant said she has learned that a lot of the
young men who come to the program get stuck emotionally
at a certain age when they experience trauma in their lives.
At the Boys Ranch, they can work through those problems
and prepare for what lies ahead with skills that can help
them survive economically, emotionally and socially in the
real world.
"It's amazing how hard these young men work on their
issues," she said.

Log Cabin Quilters


The Log Cabin Quilters
met Thursday, Dec 30, at
the Levy County Quilt
Museum. It was a great
day. Everyone had a great
Christmas and now we are
looking forward to a new
year. The Watermelon Quilt
will be put in the quilting
frame next and we have
started selling tickets on it.
We had five guests and
one will be joining us to
learn to quilt. It's so good
to have so many back,
although there are many out
with one thing or another.
Unfortunately, it seems like
our prayer list is growing
with so many who are sick.
But it is all over the country.
We are thankful for our
health and that we can do
what we can.
When the boys from
Lancaster come on Tuesday


we will clean the quilt room
out, pack away Christmas
crafts, and get the room
back so we can quilt in
there. We had a great Quilt
Show this year, and the
next event is the State Fair
in Tampa. I want to thank
everyone who sent cards
and letters. I really enjoyed
every one, and sometimes I
got one from someone I had
to remember, and so many I
don't see very often. Thank
you.
Thursday lunch was so
enjoyable with minestrone
soup, green beans, corn
casserole, collards, sweet
potatoes, bread, cheese and
macaroni, meat balls, cold
slaw, yummy pie, cookies,
Doris's pumpkin bread and
bread and butter pickles.

State Park


hosts "Manatee


Awareness Month"

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's
Manatee Springs State Park will host a variety of featured
guests throughout the month of January.
January is known as Manatee Awareness Month.
With the cooler weather, the featured guest will be 'the
manatee,' along with partners in manatee protection
awareness, education and enforcement.
Each Saturday in January, experts will give educational
programs on these gentle giants. Such guests will be the
Save the Manatee Club, the U.S. Geological Service's
Sirenia Project, Florida Fish and Wildlife, Ranger-led
programs and more.
The Manatee Spring, the head spring at Manatee
Springs State Park, emits mineral-rich water at a constant
72 degrees which provides a warm water haven for the
manatee when the rivers temperatures decrease below 68
degrees.
The event will take place 10:00 a.m. 2:00 p.m.
Saturday, January 8, 15, 22, 29, 2011 at the Manatee
Springs State Park, 11650 NW 115th Street, Chiefland,
Florida.
Activities for each Saturday program are free with a
paid park admission in January. For more information
please call the park at (352) 493-6072 or visit www.
FloridaStateParks.org.


Cedar Key Bird

Walk set for Lower

Suwannee Wildlife

Refuge

For wannabes and old hands, come birding with our
intrepid birders on Monday, Jan. 10th. On the first
Monday of each month we select a place in the Lower
Suwannee and Cedar Key Wildlife Refuges to see
whatever birds are around and to enjoy the outdoors.
Plant lovers enjoy these outings as well.
This month we will do a driving and stopping kind
of exploration so that folks who are not up to fairly
long walks will have an opportunity to participate. To
make it even more sociable, we will meet for breakfast
at Gail's in Old Town at 8:30 and then depart around 9
a.m.
Our tour will take us to Yellow Jacket Loop Road,
Beaver Dam Road and Weeks Landing Road in the
Northern most part of the Refuge. These are all off of
CR 349. Call Joyce Tarnow at 352/498-2886 for further
details.

Conservation and Biology"
said manatees and diving
regulators don't mix. He
said manatees shy away
MOON from diving regulator
NISIBLE noise and the bubbles they
produce.
"Certainly that would
2 drive them away," he said.
He said divers have been
banned from 3 Sisters
Spring at Kings Bay in
6 Crystal River because
manatees use the spring as a
warm water refuge.
But Bonde said the low
11
water levels at Manatee
Springs could also be the
reason manatees are not
18 entering the spring run or
the spring boil. He said
manatees are not risk takers.
If they feel their lives might
26 be in danger by entering the
spring, they will choose to
remain at the mouth.
35 "I think it may be the low
water. They may not feel
comfortable coming in," he
44 said.
The state is planning to
deepen the spring run at
Fanning Spring to make
access easier for manatees.

popcorn could throw a pie in her face. Ginger Roath said Matthew told her he would
win the honor of throwing the pie.

out full order forms. Matthew was one of the first to send his order form to the district.
He completed three. Matthew, an AB honor roll student at Chiefland Elementary, will
be the only Cub Scout from the district honored at the Lady Gator basketball game.
