High-powered rifles and a shotgun stolen
in a January 7, 2011 Bronson armed robbery
and stolen vehicle spree, (See 'Bronson crime
spree ends after vehicle crash' reported last
week) were recovered using metal detectors.
The Mid Florida Historical Research
and Recovery Association in Ocala was
instrumental in locating the firearms. The
two youths were arrested for an armed


A Patas monkey has been
spotted in the Williston area in a
block of woods between County
Road 318 and 217th Court.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is asking or the public's
assistance if the animal is spotted,
because the monkey can be
dangerous to anyone who might
try to handle it.
"So far, capture techniques have
proved to be ineffective," said
Maj. Lee Beach, FWC regional
commander. "We are asking
that the public not approach this
animal or attempt tojeed it."


robbery of a residence on Pennsylvania Ave.
after breaking into the residence and firing
22-caliber rifles inside. They then made off
with the stolen firearms. The youths were
pursued on foot into the woods after they
crashed a Chevy Trailblazer they had stolen
which was later located and apprehended.
The youth were also charged with stealing
two vehicles and attempting to burglarize


FWC personnel did set a trap
for the monkey, but the animal
proved to be elusive. Darting is
also problematic because of the
speed and agility of the animal.
"These monkeys are called
the 'greyhounds' of the primate
world," Beach said. "They can
run about 35 miles per hour. If
we were able to get a dart in the
animal, we could lose it in the
woods."
According to officials,
Patas monkeys, which are
ground-dwellers, can grow to
approximately 3 feet tall, not
including the tail, and weigh up


another. Colton Wayne Smith and Kenneth
Corey Benson, both of Bronson, were booked
at the Levy County Jail.
The Sheriff's Department expressed
appreciation for the Mid Florida Historical
Research and Recovery Association's
contribution of the metal detectors to making
the community safer.

to 30 pounds. The body, limbs,
feet and hands are long and slim.
It has a dark face with a white
mustache and beard.
"Another physical feature is that
they have 2-inch canine teeth,"
Beach said.
The FWC classifies captive
wildlife in different categories,
according the danger the animal
can present. The Patas monkey
is a Class II animal, which
requires substantial experience
to handle, and it has specific
cage requirements. Other Class
II animals include badgers,
wolverines, ,I!jp.' wolves and


clouded leopards.
"From this list, you can see why
we believe the monkey could hurt
someone and why we are asking
that the public not approach the
animal," Beach said.
Officials are asking the public
to report sightings of this monkey
to the Wildlife Alert Hotline at
888-404-3922, or call the FWC
regional office in Lake City at
386-758-0525.
"We're also asking for reports
if this animal is found dead, so
we can close this investigation,"
Beach said.

Levy County Sheriff's Agent

Nabs Alleged Drug Trafficker

for Faulty Headlight
Roz Tartaglione
Staff Writer

Al Joseph Carnegie, 29, of Williston was traveling in the Chiefland area and was
stopped for having a headlight out on Jan. 15, 2011. During the traffic stop a check
revealed that Carnegie had outstanding Alachua County warrants for two counts of
trafficking in cocaine, trafficking in a controlled substance, and public order crimes of
racketeering.
Agent Rick Rogers with the Levy County Sheriffs Office assigned to the Gainesville
Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has conducted a two-year investigation into Carnegie's
criminal activity. Carnegie sold trafficking amounts of cocaine on two different occasions
in the Eighth Judicial Circuit and is currently on felony probation for carrying a concealed
firearm. He is in the Levy CountyJail on a $400,000 bond.
This investigation continues and more arrests are expected.

Apprehend and

Arrest Felons

While traveling westbound on NE 3rd Avenue near
the intersection of NE 13th Street, Officer Micah
Alfaro observed a pickup truck driving without the
passenger-side headlight, and conducted a traffic stop.
After Officer Alfaro requested identification from the
subjects, the passenger fled on foot westbound on NE
42nd Place. Officer Alfaro pursued the individual on
foot through backyards on NE 13th Street and NE 3rd
Avenue. The suspect jumped a wire fence and continued
north through a wooded area. When the subject, Creg
Brown, was apprehended at 1115 NE 4 Avenue by
Officer Alfaro and PFC James Tegart, Brown continued
to resist the officers. When officers searched the vehicle,
two guns were found, a pellet gun and a Remington
.22 with the serial number removed. A check revealed
that both subjects had felony convictions, and therefore
violated their parole in possessing firearms. Mr. Brown
was charged with resisting a Law Enforcement Officer
with Violence and Possession of a firearm by a convicted
felon. The other subject, Mr. (this is first mention need
a first name ) Monroe, was charged with possession of
a firearm while a convicted felon. Both prisoners were
later transported to the Levy County Jail.


Simple Steps To Staying Safe

(NAPS)-If you are a woman who travels alone frequently, there are a
few simple steps you can take to help ensure your safety on the road and
that could potentially protect you in a dangerous situation.
* Selective parking: Whether it's an outdoor parking lot or a covered
garage, make sure the lot and space you are parking in are well lit.
Avoid parking away from other cars and be aware of parking beside
commercial vans without glass side panels, where potential attackers
could be hiding. When you return to your car, quickly survey your
surroundings, including under your vehicle and the backseat.
* Have your keys in hand: Before you leave the store, take the time to
find your keys and have them in hand as you walk to your vehicle.
Time spent rummaging in your purse when you get to your car may
leave you open to a potential attack. If you're faced with a dangerous
situation, the keys in your hand can also be used as a weapon.
* Avoid playing Good Samaritan: While your heart might be in the right
place, it's not a good idea to stop to help someone when you are by It's important to have a fully charged cell
yourself, especially in a remote area. It's best to call 911 and let the phone when you travel.
dispatcher know the location of the person who is stranded.
* Use your car's safety and security features: Familiarize yourself with the safety and security features of your car. Does
your car have a GPS? Is there a feature that will alert emergency personnel if you are involved in a car accident?
Automatic car starters are a good feature because they could save you critical time in a bad situation.
* Keep your vehicle serviced: A poorly maintained vehicle could cause you problems at the worst possible times. Check
your tires for wear and rotate them every other oil change. Have your battery checked for corrosion and make
sure there's the appropriate amount of water in it and that it holds a charge. Check your fluids and get your oil
changed. Using synthetic oil such as Royal Purple can be a great way to extend the life of your car and save money.
Synthetic motor oils can usually run longer than traditional motor oils, depending on the wear and tear you put on
your vehicle.
* Have a plan if trouble arises: Do you know what you would do if you were confronted by a potential abductor or
carjacker? If you are approached by a person in or around your car, drop any bags, run and make a lot of noise that
will draw attention to you. Try to stay in control of the situation. Whatever you do, do not go with the person to
another location regardless of promises that you won't be hurt. If you feel you're being
followed by another car, call 911 and drive to a police station or hospital.

Billee Johns came into our Bronson office at 440 S. Court
Street, (Thank you Billee). He is the first face in the picture
(left to right) and was a Boy Scout leader in this pack. The
pack met on Tuesdays due to the generosity of the Bronson
United Methodist Church in Bronson who lent them the
building, starting in 1993 when the pack originated. This
picture was taken in 1994. The other male pack leader, last
back picture on the right is Bob Caniff (both Johns and Bob
were veterans), and the two boys right in front of Bob are
his sons, on the left is Mathew Caniff and on the right, or
the very last face is Patrick Caniff. Joyce, the Den Mother is
also shown with Billee Johns and a young boy that he could
not identify. Billee says that Ms. Sheffield who teaches and
drives the bus at Bronson HS could identify them for sure.

Budget Crisis Rhetoric


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

Government budget / '
crises can be painful,
but the political rhetoric
accompanying these crises -
can also be fascinating and
revealing. Perhaps the most
famous American budget ... '
crisis was New York City's,
back during the 1970s.
When President Gerald
Ford was unwilling to
bail them out, the famous
headline in the New York
Daily News read, "Ford to City: Drop Dead."
President Ford caved and bailed them out, after all.
The rhetoric worked. That is why so many other cities
and states-- not to mention the federal government-- have
continued on with irresponsible spending, and are now
facing new budget crises, with no end in sight.
What would have happened if President Ford had stuck
to his guns and not set the dangerous precedent of bailing
out local irresponsibility with the taxpayers' money?
New York would have gone bankrupt. But millions
of individuals and organizations go bankrupt without
dropping dead.
Bankruptcy conveys the plain facts that political
rhetoric tries to conceal. It tells people who depended on
the bankrupt government that they can no longer depend
on that bankrupt government. It tells the voters who
elected that bankrupt government, with its big spending


promises, that they made a bad mistake that they would
be wise to avoid making again in the future.
Legally, bankruptcy wipes out commitments made to
public sector unions, whose extravagant pay and pension
contracts are bleeding municipal and state governments
dry.
Is putting an end to political irresponsibility and
legalized union racketeering dropping dead?
Politics being what it is, we are sure to hear all sorts
of doomsday rhetoric at the thought of cutbacks in
government spending. The poor will be starving in the
streets, to hear the politicians and the media tell it.
But the amount of money it would take to keep the poor
from starving in the streets is chump change compared
to how much it would take to keep on feeding unions,
subsidized businesses and other special interests who are
robbing the taxpayers blind.
Letting armies of government employees retire in their
fifties, to live for decades on pensions larger than they
were making when they were working, costs a lot more
than keeping the poor from starving in the streets.
Pouring the taxpayers' money down a thousand
bottomless pits of public and private boondoggles costs
a lot more than keeping the poor from starving in the
streets.
Bankruptcy says: "We just don't have the money." End
of discussion. Bailouts say: "Give the taxpayers a little
rhetoric, and a little smoke and mirrors with the book-
keeping, and we can keep the party rolling."
One of the political games that is played during a


budget crisis is to cut back on essential services like police
departments and fire departments, in order to blackmail
the public into accepting higher tax rates. Often, a lot
more money could be saved by getting rid of runaway
pension contracts with public sector unions.
Bankruptcy can do that. Bailouts cannot.
What the public needs are current policemen and
current firemen, not retired policemen and retired
firemen, much less bureaucrats retired on inflated
pensions.
The political temptation to create extravagant pensions
is always there, not only at state and local levels, or at the
federal level, but in countries around the world. Why?
Because pensions are benefits that can be promised for the
future, without raising the money to pay for them.
Politicians get the votes of those to whom pensions are
promised, without losing the votes of taxpayers-- and
they leave it up to future government officials to figure out
what to do when the money is just not there. It is a sure-
fire guarantee of political irresponsibility.
All of this works politically only so long as the voting
public accepts budget crisis rhetoric at face value, without
bothering to stop and think about what it means and implies.

Blame Righty: A Condensed History


Tale of Two Americas


By Rick Manning


John Edwards ran his ill-fated
presidential campaign around the theme
that there are "two Americas," one that is
wealthy and powerful, and the other that
is poor and weak.
Events that have occurred since the
Tucson shooting tragedy have revealed
that there are indeed two Americas, just
not the two that Edwards envisioned.
The first America exists largely along
the coasts and big cities, gets their
news from Katie Couric and reads the
Huffington Post or Daily Kos.
The second America exists in the
heartland, the suburbs, exurbs and rural
area, gets their news from FOX, the radio
and regularly visits Drudge, Redstate or
NetRightDaily.
The first America believes that
government is the solution to problems
and that paying unemployment benefits
has far more stimulative effect on the
economy than lowering taxes.
The second America believes that
individuals and private enterprise
are the solution to problems and the
government's role is just to make certain
that people play by the rules.
The first America hears Rush
Limbaugh, and they cringe as he attacks
their belief system attributing his
disagreement and humor at their expense
as hate speech.
The second America hears Rush
Limbaugh and cheers because finally
someone is espousing their values.
The first America sees Sarah Palin and
dismisses her because she doesn't have the
Ivy education that they value so highly.
The second America hears Sarah Palin
and gets excited as she stands toe to toe
with the Ivy educated masters of the
universe and gives better than she gets.
The first America listens to National
Public Radio and doesn't think it is
liberal, but instead it is just informed.
The second America views Glenn
Beck, and finds him to be interesting
and enlightening as he tackles topics that
others veer away from.
The first America preaches tolerance
and decries harsh rhetoric while at the
same time calling the second America
racist homophobes.
The second America can't understand
why they are attacked by the first
America, but secretly, and sometimes not
so secretly, suspect that the first America
consists of godless socialists who are bent
on destroying their nation.
The first and second America view the
same event and come to entirely different
and conflicting conclusions. This may be
because they get their information about
these events through entirely different
lenses, or it could be that we choose
different lenses because we view events
from entirely different perspectives.
With all of the challenges facing our
nation, perhaps the largest is can these
two Americas co-exist when they don't
speak the same language, get their
information from the same sources, or
even have a common frame of reference?
A pretty common comedic gag is for
, protagonist to be speaking to someone


who speaks a different language, and
when he is not understood, he speaks
more loudly.
The answer to our national
communication problem is not to speak
more loudly, or even more clearly. The
answer is to communicate using language
that the other America understands. It
is the one thing that Ronald Reagan
and Bill Clinton had in common; they
each were able to speak across the
communications barrier between the first
and second Americas. However, today,
the first and second Americas not only
don't share language, they don't share
common national experiences.
Evidence of this is that the Washington
Post editors and reporters completely
missed a major political storm brewing
over the appointment of Van Jones to a
post early in the Obama Administration.
They did not write about it, they did
not even know about it, until Jones'
appointment was politically cooked and
he left the Administration.
Afterward, the Post evaluated their
situation and discovered that they did
not have anyone in the news or political
reporting team who was at all connected
with what was happening in the
conservative blogosphere. So, they took
action to solve that problem by hiring
someone to monitor what was going on so
they were not caught completely unaware
with a major political story blowing up.
Of course, they hired someone from the
first America, and this served to discredit
their entire effort.
But their first instinct was right. The
first and second America need to figure
out what each other are talking about,
what each other care about, and hopefully
find common ground in these things.
Unfortunately, what we learned from
the Tucson shootings is that the first
America is more interested in casting
stones at the second America even when
the facts don't warrant the attack, and the
second America is so sick of being cast as
the bad guy, they fought back with heated
rhetoric that the first America dismissed.
This sad spectacle takes me back to a
feature that used to and may still be in
Parade magazine, "Can this Marriage Be
Saved?" For the first time in my life, I not
only don't know if the marriage can be
saved, I am not certain that either party
wants it to be.
As a member of the second America it
is my prayer that both the first and second
America will be renewed in common
purpose by the hope that is America, a
land of endless opportunity for people
who are willing to work and take risks
to achieve their dreams. Of course, the
first America will probably just observe a
meaningless moment of silence.
Unfortunately, the gunman in Tucson
may have done more than attack a
Member of Congress, he may have set off
a national self-evaluation that questions
everything, including whether the two
Americas can continue to live together.
So, can this marriage be saved?

Communications for Americans for Limited
Government.

By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

I agree with President Obama. When it
comes to politicizing random violence, he
and his supporters have been "far too eager
to lay the blame for all that ails the world
at the feet of those who think differently
than" they do. Recognition is the first
step toward reconciliation. It's time to
recognize the poisonous pervasiveness of
the Blame Righty meme.
For the past two years, Democratic
officials, liberal activists and journalists
have jumped to libelous conclusions about
individual shooting sprees committed by
mentally unstable loners with incoherent
delusions all over the ideological map. The
White House now pledges to swear off
"pointing fingers or assigning blame." Alas,
the Obama administration's political and
media foot soldiers have proved themselves
incapable of such restraint.
In April 2009, a disgruntled,
unemployed loser shot and killed three
Pittsburgh police officers in a horrifying
bloodbath. The gunman, Richard
Poplawski, was a dropout from the
Marines who threw a food tray at a drill
sergeant and had beaten his girlfriend.
Was this deranged shooter who pulled
the trigger to blame? Nope. Despite
evidence that Poplawski's homicidal,
racist tendencies manifested themselves
years before Obama took office, lefty
publications asserted that the real culprit
of the spree was the "heated, apocalyptic
rhetoric of the anti-Obama forces"
(according to mainstream liberal Atlantic
Monthly pundit Andrew Sullivan),
along with Fox News and Glenn Beck
(according to mainstream liberal journalist
Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly
online).
That same month, a sick, evil man
named Jiverly Voong ambushed an
immigration center in Binghamton,
N.Y. Recently fired from his job, Voong
murdered 13 people, critically wounded
four others and then committed suicide.
The instant psychologists of the left knew
nothing about the disgruntled man of
Vietnamese descent and undetermined
political affiliation. But within hours of the
shooting, liberal mega-website Huffington
Post commenters had overwhelmingly'
convicted GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann
of Minnesota, the National Rifle
Association, Fox News, Lou Dobbs
and yours truly. Liberal radio host Alan
Colmes pointed his finger at the "huge
anti-immigrant backlash in this country"
-- never mind that tens of millions of legal
immigrants and naturalized citizens have
coped with hardship, overcome racism
and embraced assimilation without going
bloody bonkers.
In June 2009, a depraved, elderly anti-
Semite named James von Brunn gunned
down a security guard at the Holocaust
Museum in D.C. Washington Post
blogger Greg Sargent and lefty Center
for American Progress think-tank fellow
Matthew Yglesias immediately invoked
the Obama administration's report on
right-wing extremism, leading to a wider
chorus of condemnations against the tea
party, talk radio and the entire GOP.
The truth? Von Brunn was an unstable,
equal-opportunity hater and 9/11 Truther
conspiracy loon who bashed Jews and
Christians, George W. Bush and Fox
News, and had also threatened the
conservative Weekly Standard magazine.
In late August 2009, as lawmakers
faced citizen revolts at health care
town halls nationwide, the Colorado
Democratic Party decried a window-
smashing vandalism attack at its 1)enver


headquarters.
State
Democratic
Party Chair
Pat Waak
singled out
tea party t
activists
and blamed
"people
opposed to
health care"
for the attack.
The perpetrator, Maurice Schwenkler,
turned out to be a far-left transgender
activist/single-payer anarchist who had
worked for a labor union-tied political
committee and canvassed for a Democratic
candidate.
In September 2009, Bill Sparkman, a
federal U.S. Census worker, was found
dead in a secluded rural Kentucky
cemetery with the word "Fed" scrawled
on his chest with a rope around his neck.
The Atlantic Monthly's Andrew Sullivan
rushed to indict "Southern populist
'terrorism, whipped up by the GOP and
its Fox and talk radio cohorts" in an
online magazine post titled "No Suicide,"
which decried the "Kentucky lynching."
Liberal author Richard Benjamin blamed
"anti-government" bile. New York
magazine fingered conservative talk radio
giant Rush Limbaugh, "conservative
media personalities, websites and even
members of Congress." So, who killed
Bill Sparkman? Bill Sparkman. He killed
himself and deliberately manufactured a
hate crime hoax as part of an insurance
scam to benefit his surviving son.
In February 2010, ticking time-bomb
professor Amy Bishop gunned down
three of her colleagues at University of
Alabama-Huntsville, and suicide pilot
Joseph Andrew Stack flew a stolen small
plane into an Austin, Texas, office complex
that contained an Internal Revenue
Service office. Mainstream journalists
from Washington Post columnist Jonathan
Capehart to Time magazine reporter
Hilary Hylton leaped forward to tie the
crimes to tea party rhetoric. Never mind
that Bishop was an Obama-worshiping
academic with a lifelong history of violence
or that Stack was another Bush-hater
outraged about everything from George
W. Bush to the American medical system
to the evils of capitalism to the city of
Austin, the Catholic Church and airlines.
In May 2010, liberal New York City
Mayor Michael Bloomberg tried to
preemptively pin the Times Square
bombing attempt on "someone with a
political agenda that doesn't like the
health care bill or something." The culprit
was unrepentant Muslim jihadist Faisal
Shahzad.
In August 2010, Democratic supporters
of Missouri Rep. Russ Carnahan blamed
a "firebombing" at the congressman's St.
Louis office on tea party suspects. The
real perpetrator? Disgruntled progressive
activist Chris Powers, who was enraged
over a paycheck dispute.
President Obama wisely counseled the
nation this week at the Tucson massacre
memorial that "bad things happen, and
we must guard against simple explanations
in the aftermath." But as the progressive
left's smear-stained recent history shows,
criminalizing conservatism is a hard habit
to break.
The extreme preservationists have run
ainok. Its time to fence them in. Michell//e

The Escalation


and Ricochet of Sin


A cold clear river slid lazily past our little
camp. The afternoon sun, slung low, was
casting a brilliant shimmer which danced
soothingly over the old tributary's wrinkled
skin. Two freshly caught trout were roasting
over a crackling fire.
We'd come to unwind and enjoy the
Memorial Day weekend. Too bad four
hundred other city dwellers were there
looking for that same little sliver of peace on
the river's bend. We were wedged in tighter
than a sumo wrestler's spandex swim shorts.
My brother Heath tended to the fire as
I gathered up a passel of wayward beer
cans washed ashore from the masses of
drunken canoers who'd tumped at the rapids
upstream. I stacked them carnival style and
pulled out my little Red Rider B.B. gun. I
was plinking them pretty good when Heath
suddenly grabbed my barrel mid-shot.
"Watch out," I huffed, waving to
emphasize how he'd almost caused me to
shoot into a nearby tent.
"Better hold off on the B.B. gun," he
warned, "Dude next door is liable to call the
park ranger."
Sure enough the little fellow was
stomping around snot slinging mad,
although he didn't appear eager to make eye
contact about it.
"It looks like he's suffering from the
ricochetides," Heath surmised.
He was, of course, referring to the
unreasonable fear of having an eye put out
by a B.B. gun, as proliferated by the movie
'The Christmas Story'. Frankly I'd always
thought it pretty ridiculous. Heath and I
had shot at each other on purpose for years
growing up, and we'd never been able to put
out one. I was about to say as much when
somebody on the other side of the stomping
mad fellow linked one of my cans into the
river with his high powered pellet gun.
I stood up to question the audacity of
who'd do such a thing. It was some yahoo
in a cut off shirt t-shirt and terry cloth
shorts. He stood there grinning, working
a big wad of chew. When he noticed my
eyes narrowing on him, he spat enough
tobacco juice to drown a beagle. I may not
have been the sharpest axe in the barn, but I
recognized a challenge to my marksmanship
when I saw it. I could practically hear the
theme from 'The Good, the Bad, and the
Ugly' playing. So I cocked my little Red
Rider Rifleman style and reared up and
fired all in one motion, one handed. A can
went soaring. It wasn't exactly the one I was
aiming at, but it was enough to send Mr.
Terry Cloth to pumping up that pellet gun.
For the next ten minutes we went back
and forth trick-shooting. I had my gun
between my legs about to squeeze off a
shot when I heard a safety click next door.


It sounded like
something a little
more substantial
than a B.B.
gun. I looked
up in time to
witness Stompy
Snotslinger
emptying his .45
caliber automatic
pistol into a
small island just
across the way!
BOOM BOOM


a. 5




But Anyway...
with Guy Shefield


BOOM... about eight rounds in all.
A huge hush suddenly clamped down
on the camp ground. Other than the soft
scamper of folks ducking for cover, you
could've heard a pin drop. Even the river
seemed to stifle its trickle. I was glad I'd
been able stifled mine.
I noticed Heath was now conveniently
standing behind a tree. It seemed like a good
time to join him, so without making any
sudden moves, I carefully set down my Red
Rider. With a friendly nod to my naughty
neighbor, who was suddenly emboldened to
make eye contact, I backed over to the tree;
keeping my hands in plain sight of course.
I noticed Mr. Terry Cloth had already
chunked his iron and dove for his tent.
But anyway- I reckon I learned right
there on the spot how quickly things can
ricochet if you don't heed the lessons of the
Christmas Story; no, not the movie silly- the
real Christmas story. The one where a baby
named Jesus was born and grows up to give
His Life to offer us forgiveness from our
sins.
Jesus also came to open folk's blinded eyes
so they could see clearly enough to live side
by side without shooting one another! Boy,
it was clear I had a lot to learn. To borrow
a line from an old Park Ranger named the
Apostle Paul- (This is a faithful saying,
and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of
whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15 KJV)
Thankfully old Stompy Snotslinger
chunked his pup tent in his trunk and
squealed off before the Ranger showed.
Later, Terry Cloth moseyed over to swap lies
beside the fire. We talked late into the night
of how we'd of had to plink ole' Stompy's
eyes out if he'd of tried to turn that gun on
us. Of course, the truth was, we were all still
a little shaky about witnessing how truly
fragile life can be, and how quickly a little
sin can escalate

Florida Cattle and Cowboys Exhibit Feb. 12


Cattle ranching, cowboy exhibits open
Feb. 12 at Florida Museum Natural
History
Move over Texans; Floridians are the
original cowboys. Discover the state's cattle
ranching and cowboy traditions through
two new exhibits opening at the Florida
Museum of Natural History Feb. 12:
"Florida Cattle Ranching: Five Centuries
of Tradition" and "Florida Cowboys:
Keepers of the Last Frontier, Photographs
by Carlton Ward Jr."
These free exhibits, on display through
May 8, take an in-depth look at Florida's
cattle ranching history and continued
impact on the state's economy.
"The cattle ranching story has very local
roots -- Spanish cattle ranchers settled
on Paynes Prairie in the 1600s, and the
cattle ranching tradition continues to be
strong in North Central Florida today,"
said Darcie MacMahon, Florida Museum
assistant director for exhibits. "Throughout
Florida, ranches are important, not just
economically, but also for the role they
play in land stewardship and protection
of natural areas of critical significance in
a state where growth presents so many
conservation challenges."
The Florida Museum is the final venue
on the cattle ranching exhibit tour. The
exhibit takes visitors on a journey through

ance


time, from the Spanish introduction of
cattle to Florida in the 16th century to
current ranching methods, including
breeding hybrid beef cattle and selling
yearling calves.
The exhibit explores cattle ranching
through the eyes of various cultures,
including the Seminole Indians and
Spanish colonists. Visitors may view boots,
saddles, whips, brands and other items, as
well as displays, photographs and paintings
that depict the evolution of the state's cattle
ranching industry.
Through "Florida Cowboys: Keepers
of the Last Frontier," photographer Ward
shares the grit and beauty of Florida's
heartland and cowboys. The exhibit uses
photographs to celebrate the history and
traditions of cattle ranching.
Ward is an eighth-generation Floridian
with a strong connection to ranching, and
his photographs appear in both exhibits.
"The exhibit focuses on Florida ranch
lands and culture and the environment it
protects," Carlton, said. "It's an unseen and
tremendously important part of Florida."
Florida's cattle ranching tradition is one
of the region's most valuable economic
resources. Nearly half of all of Florida's
agricultural land is used for cattle ranching
and Florida is one of the top five beef
producing states east of the Mississippi

The Last Chance

-Andrew Jackson's Raid on the Suwannee

When I was a boy, my family camped and fished on the Suwannee from a rustic
houseboat. Those were leisurely days with time to peer into the dark swirls of water over
submerged logs, observing the abundant foliage and wildlife along the high banks. In our
drift past the willows and tall cypresses, we'd sometimes come to sandy landings where
my brothers and I would scour the clay bluffs for flint and shards of Indian pottery.
Sometimes we'd swim out and dive for rusty relics like mossy bottles spied in amber
shafts of sunlight down the river's shadowy bottom. Most of our finds were of no
significant value. They were merely boyhood treasures, but I was totally enamored of
such things at the time. I'm not much past that now.
My excitement about these finds was fueled by stories my mother read aloud to us:
tales of great sea adventures, lost treasures and secret caves. I gorged my imagination
on her dramatic readings of wild Indians and Spanish galleons. From billowing clouds
toward the Gulf, I conjured the corsairs of pirates in search of merchant ships. So vivid
were these imaginings, I'd sometimes surface in the dark river half expecting to spy
some smuggler's schooner in the deep current ahead.
Recently there surfaced in my reading a true-to-life 19th century schooner, the
Chance, moored at the mouth of the Suwannee on April 14, 1818. It was from that
mooring that a fascinating episode of international importance occurred, although the
incident receives little mention in history texts today.
Surprisingly enough, I saw the incident cited in a legal brief as (arguably) a precedent
for the current imprisonments and interrogations of terrorists held at Guantlnamo Bay
in Cuba. Here's why: The Chance was owned by one Alexander Arbuthnot, a Scottish
merchant and Indian trader, some seventy years old at the time. Absent of any formal
licensure by Spanish authorities, the wily old Scotsman operated out of the Bahamas
by Cuba and along the Gulf coast. Arbuthnot's operations were irritating to the famous
Forbes Company, as it previously held a monopoly on Indian trade in Florida. Forbes'
agents were quick to make their displeasure known to both Spanish and U.S. officials
who were under increasing pressure to do something about Seminole raids into Georgia
and lower Alabama. The Forbes version, of course, was that Arbuthnot was stirring up
trouble to stimulate his trade in arms and ammunitions to the renegades.
Arbuthnot's version was that he was merely a humble merchant supplying the serene

Springhouse Quilter's News


The January business meeting of
Springhouse Quilters was held on Tuesday,
January 11, with President Pat Hodges
officiating. There was lots of laughter,
fellowship and sharing of holiday events as
46 members gathered to enjoy a fun time
getting the new quilting year started.
Valerie Malkemes, a Gainesville
quilter and instructor, presented a most
informative demonstration on "precision
piecing." Valerie is a retired school teacher
and she very easily captured the interest of
Springhouse members as she demonstrated
how to make perfect quilt blocks.
A workshop entitled "The French Rose,"
is scheduled for members on January 25
with instructor, Christine Mcgee. Christine
displayed a completed French Rose and
Rose Bud quilt made in beautiful pinks
for members to see how a completed quilt
would appear.
A progress report was given on the
2011 raffle quilt by Chairperson, Frances

January's Cedar Key Arts Center Opening

Features Kates and Goodlet


This month the Cedar Key Arts Center is honored to
share the works of two artists who know how to capture
the spirit of Cedar Key in their paintings. Sam Kates'
exhibit, entitled "A Salt Life," is featured in the main
gallery. Painting in acrylics Sam says he likes to focus
on "the water's edge," a very special and unique part of
our natural environment and maritime heritage. For
over 50 years he has enjoyed painting buildings, boats
and landscapes in and around Cedar Key, bringing back
memories that fill your senses the sight, the sound, the
smell and the feel of the Nature Coast.
In the Member Artists' Gallery, the oil paintings of
Cedar Keyhole Artist, Bob Goodlett are featured. Bob's
serene interpretations of nature's moods are both delicately
and dramatically depicted in his paintings of our marshes,
waterways and wildlife.
Thanks to the members and guests who attended last
Saturday night's opening and had a chance to meet the
artists. Both exhibits will be open daily from 10am 5
pm throughout the month ofJanuary. The Arts Center
is located at 475 2nd Street in Cedar Key. Come in and
enjoy the view.

AN D FINALLY

14 Jan 20, 2011 The County Paper, Est. 1923 levyjournalonline.com The Levy County Journal


.






said he was after, deerskin being particularly prized in
continued from page 8 Illustration by Alexander Key
villages of the Seminoles. He professed his only interest
to be fair trade among the natives whom he thought were
often robbed of their lands and wronged in dealings with
the Forbes cartel. It was pelts and deerskin Arbuthnot
said he was after, deerskin being particularly prized in
Europe at the time for gloves and the lining of fine boots.
He also traded for bear oil and wild honey, offering guns
and munitions for 'hunting,' skinning knives, axes and
hatchets. His stores, including one on the East bank of the
Suwannee above Old Clay Landing, offered fishhooks and
brass buttons, kettles, vermillion and calico cloth. These
were among the items typical of his cargo. Nevertheless,
on this day in 1818, Arbuthnot was not in control of his
recent cargo nor of his schooner, the Chance.
Arbuthnot's ship and its captain, one Lewis Phoenix,
had been commandeered in Tampa Bay by a brash,
31-year-old former officer in the British Marines, Robert
Christy Ambrister. Posing as an agent in the service of
the insurgent British officer, Colonel James Woodbine,
Ambrister was now in command. It was Woodbine's intent
to conquer Spanish Florida by raising an army of soldiers
of fortune out of the Bahamas, bolstered by renegade
Seminoles and their allies.
More particularly, Ambrister was assigned to enlist
runaway slaves in Florida called Maroons. There were at
the time some 800 Maroons living in small camp towns


along the western bank of the lower Suwannee. It was this
recruitment "in Woodbine's service" that had Ambrister
and his cohorts up the Suwannee.
Alexander Arbuthnot's sidekick, one Peter Cook, was a
former clerk of his. But the wizened Scot earlier had Cook
jailed for theft from his principal trading post at St Marks.
Now, together with the enterprising Ambrister and two
Maroon guards, Arbuthnot and party made their way
quickly up river by skiff. They were on their way to Boleck,
or Bowleg's Town, located on the western bank, down
river of the Arbuthnot trading post. The urgency of their
return to the village was heightened by information that
General Andrew Jackson had begun his cavalier invasion
of Florida.
Jackson, with his Tennessee Volunteers and sizable
contingency of friendly Creek Indians, had already
marched on the Spanish Fort at St. Marks on the
Apalachicola. The Maroons and Bowlegs knew soon
after about Jackson's impending advance to the Bowleg's
Town. Already a prisoner at St. Marks, Arburthnot had
sent a runner with a letter to his son, John, who ran the
Arbuthnot trading post on the Suwannee.
The runner had made his way through some 107 miles
of swamp and thick hammock in less than three days.
According to Arbuthnot's instructions, John was to reward
his currier with "...enough calico to make two shirts."
He was then to vacate the post and secure their supplies
aboard the Chance somewhere "south of the Cedar Keys."
Ambrister was now in possession of Arbuthnot's letter.
In fact, one of his guards had the same in his jacket
pocket, as John Arbuthnot was already held prisoner
aboard the Arbuthnot's Chance. Opportunist that he was,
Ambrister hurried on, believing the time ripe for securing
armed alliances with the Seminoles and Maroons.
But Ambrister was in for a surprise himself. When he
and his party arrived late in the night, a sentry observed
their hasty approach. Unbeknownst to Ambrister, Jackson


had already taken Bowleg's Town, and his troops were
camped there that night. It didn't take long for Jackson's
officers to extract from Cook the location of the Chance,
along with incriminating statements against Ambrister.
Jackson's men found the elder Arbuthnot's letter on the
Maroon mercenary. Of course the pretender Ambrister
had a ready explanation for his business in Bowleg's Town.
Jackson, however, didn't buy any of the redcoat's self-
professed claims of a noble cause. The general then sent a
contingency to take possession ofThe Chance, which they
would sail back to St. Marks with the sick and wounded.
The rest languished about the Indian town another day or
so eating the store of corn and feasting on fresh beef and
pork. They chased the chickens and pillaged and burned
the 300 or so structures that comprised the town.
What they did not have was a well and gloriously-won
victory over the Seminoles and Maroons. For by the time
Jackson had gotten to Bowleg's Town, virtually all of them
had crossed the river into the swamps. Only a scattering of
Maroons and Indians had waited as a rear guard to impede
the superior force, shooting from banks of palmetto and
cypresses before they too faded away into the wild.
Fierce warlord that he was, Old Hickory didn't like
being cheated of a good fight. It may have been that, as
much as anything else, which influenced his handling
of Arbuthnot on return to St. Marks with Ambrister in
chains.
The ensuing trials of Arbuthnot and Ambrister
would enter into the annals of military history and
law, particularly as related to the taking of prisoners
on foreign soil and administering U.S. laws against the
subjects of another sovereign nation. The trial for both
men who each testified against the other was both
brief and harsh. Ambrister was shot before a firing squad.
As for Arbuthnot, he was hung from the yard arm of
his schooner, dubbed then by soldiers in a literal gasp of
gallows humor, the "Last Chance."


Thanks to the CHS Quarterback Club
for Sponsoring All Star Game
I wanted to say thank you to the Chiefland High School Quarterback Club for
sponsoring Jamantye Thompson and Bo Beauchamp in the East West Senior All-Star
Football game on Saturday. Jamantye really didn't get much playing time, but he kicked
a 33-yard field goal for the only score for the West Team. Bo got a lot of playing time and
played well. Jamantye was named Most Valuable Offensive Player for the West Team.
The West team didn't have a kicker, and Jamantye can kick, so Coach O'Neil told
him to get his butt out there. He made the goal, and was named MVP. This was special
to Jamantye to play his last high school game at Memorial Stadium. This is where he
played his first ever football game in Little League when we lived there and this is where
he finished. Coach O'Neil said Tusculum College was there scouting Jamantye. We
hope that went well.
Thanks, Shanele Brown McNeil
