Trading Post Robbery Suspect and

Accomplices Snapped by Dixie County Sheriff


Shortly before 9 p.m. on Tuesday night, January 18,
a white female entered the Trading Post Store on NE
349 Hwy wearing a mask, gloves, and loose fitting
sweat-style shirt. The suspect had what appeared to be
a semi-auto handgun and demanded the clerk to give
her cash. The suspect was described as approximately
5'4" to 5'5" with a thin-to-medium build. After the
clerk handed the cash to the subject, she fled the store
and is believed to have gotten into an SUV-style vehicle
and fled the area. The vehicle left the area and traveled
toward a rural subdivision in an area behind the store
offNE 349. This area was subsequently saturated with
responding officers from the Dixie County Sheriffs
Office and the Cross City Police.
After publishing the surveillance camera video,
the Dixie County Sheriffs Office began getting tips
as to the identity of the suspect. During the evening
hours on Wednesday night, Sheriffs investigators were
called and began following those leads. Following
the tips during the course of the evening led to the
identification of three suspects: two white females and
one white male.
Arrested as a result of those leads were Shelly Jean
Stroupe, female, 26 years of age and Courtney Megan
Johnson, female, 24 years of age. Both Stroupe and
Johnson list Old Town addresses as their place of

Finding a cache of stolen firearms is a
sideline activity for the Mid Florida Historical
Research and Recovery Association in Ocala,
Florida, but local law enforcement and
residents are still very thankful.
When two juveniles burglarized and
vandalized a home in Bronson and then
sped away in a stolen vehicle, they were
apprehended but without the firearms. The
juveniles pointed out the area where they
stashed the firearms to the Levy County
Sheriffs Department but that was not enough
so the Sheriffs Department called in the
big detectors, the Mid Florida Historical
Research and Recovery Association. And on
Jan. 11, 2011, in 45 minutes the guns were put
into the hands of law enforcement, away from
any future mayhem they might have extolled
on Levy County residents.
The area was searched by members Chuck
Barber, Mike Sniegowski and Steve Lindsay
each using their own personal detecting
equipment for the safety of Levy County


Stolen firearms buried in planted-pine woods.
with Barber pinpointing the exact cache in
a pile of pine needles at a planted pine forest
in Bronson. The juveniles had stashed them
under 4-5 inches of pine straw so they were


not visible to the naked eye but the detectors
did what the human eye could not.

Williston PD Charges Three Area Men

with Pawn Shop Burglary


Two 21-year-old
Williston men were arrested
yesterday and charged with
felonies stemming from
the break-ins of two local
businesses.
Tye Pierce and Jordan
Shaffer have both been
charged with the burglary
of Pesso's Pawn Shop in
Williston. Pesso's was
burglarized multiple
times between October
and November of last
year resulting in a loss of
$80,000 worth ofjewelry
and guns. Much of the
jewelry has been recovered
as well as one firearm.
Shaffer was also arrested
for the July burglary of
Green Shutters Restaurant,
a business not far from


Pesso's at the intersection
ofNW 7th Street and West
Noble Avenue. A small
amount of cash was taken
from Green Shutters. The
cash drawer taken in the
theft was recovered.
Both suspects have
been charged with Armed
Burglary, Grand theft
and Criminal Mischief.
Other suspects are pending
arrest in both cases and
more charges will likely
be brought as much of the
stolen property was resold
at pawnshops in Levy and
Alachua counties.
On January 21, the third
suspect in the Pesso's Pawn
Shop burglaries turned
himself in. Shon Smith,
18, of Williston had been


Tye Pierce (above), Jordan
Shaffer (right) and Shon
Smith (below)
under investigation along
with Jordan Shaffer and Tye
Pierce. Smith was booked
into the Levy County Jail
on several felony charges.
Police were able to recover
a few stolen items taken
during the Pesso's burglary.

Levy's Most Wanted


LCSO Drug Task

Force Strikes Again

The Levy County Sheriff's Office Drug Task
Force executed a drug search warrant last night at
8151 NW 30th Street in Chiefland and arrested five
people. This is the second time agents have executed
a search warrant at this residence. Agents purchased
prescription pills (oxycodone) from the two brothers,
Robert and Daniel Huffman.
During the investigation Robert Huffman, 35, sold
oxycodone on four separate occasions, and Daniel
Huffman, 28, sold oxycodone one time to agents.
The Huffman brothers were arrested in 2007 for
committing a bank robbery at Capital City Bank
in Chiefland. Ray Douglas Register, 56, and Laura
Harper, 24, were also arrested for drug paraphernalia
and maintaining a drug dwelling.
While executing the search warrant, Abijah Seth
Key, 30, drove up in a vehicle and a driver's license
check revealed that he had numerous suspensions and
was arrested for driving while license suspended.

A Republican Showdown?


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


hey say that, .' i.
in politics, .
overnight is
a lifetime." In
other words, the journey -
from triumphant hero to
discredited scapegoat can be :
very brief. .
In the wake of the
Republicans' triumphs in .'
last November's elections,
great hopes are being held
out that Republican control
of the House of Representatives can slam the brakes on
Barack Obama's march toward a completely government-
controlled economy and ruinous deficit spending.
The first big step toward that goal could be forcing the
Obama administration to cut back on spending, as the
price of raising the national debt ceiling, which will be
necessary early on in this new Congress, if the federal
government is not going to be forced to shut down for lack
of money.
Much of the runaway spending in Washington has
been a spending of money that the government doesn't
have in the till, by borrowing money through the sale of
government bonds-- in other words, running up a record
high national debt.
Because there is a legal limit on how much national
debt the government can create, the spending has to
be cut back or the debt ceiling increased by Congress.


Otherwise, the government is going to have to shut down
many of its operations for lack of money.
Some people see this as a golden opportunity for the
new Republican majority to gain concessions from the
Obama administration, as the price for going along with
an increase in the national debt. It sounds logical. But
logic is not always the dominant factor in politics.
The last time the government shut down, back during
the Clinton administration, the Republicans were
riding high as a result of their capture of the House
of Representatives-- where all spending bills must
originate-- for the first time in decades.
Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich seemed to hold
all the high cards. But the government shutdown ruined
Republicans politically.
Congress had increased the amount of money
appropriated for the government to spend, though not by
as much as President Clinton wanted. So it was Clinton
who shut down the government, though it was the
Republicans who got blamed.
Sometimes it doesn't matter who holds the high cards, if
the other side plays their cards better.
Today, the Republicans don't hold as many high cards
as they did back during the Clinton administration. How
did they lose then -- and what are their chances of losing
now, if they try to force serious concessions from the
administration, and Obama calls their bluff by daring
them to shut down the government?
Often, in politics, it doesn't matter what the facts are.
What matters is how well you make your case to the
voting public.
Back in 1995, Bill Clinton and the Congressional
Democrats, with the aid of the media, pounded
away on the theme that the Republicans had "cut"


government programs, even where the Republicans
had appropriated more money than these programs
had ever had beforeWhat Republicans had cut was the
amount that Clinton had asked for. You might think
that this was a fairly obvious difference and that this
could be explained to the public. But the Republicans
failed to do so effectively.It was painful to watch various
Republican spokesmen come on television and talk about
discrepancies between Congressional Budget Office
statistics and statistics from the Office of Management
and Budget. This might have been fascinating stuff in a
seminar on accounting, but it was like Greek to many TV
viewers.
If the Republicans cannot be bothered to put in the
time and the hard work required to develop an effective
articulation of their case, then they deserve to lose. But
the country does not deserve to have disastrous policies
continue.
While the case for having the government play Santa
Claus is easier to make, the opposite case is by no means
impossible to make. Radio talk show hosts from Rush
Limbaugh to Sean Hannity and many others make
that case every day, in plain language that anyone can
understand.
If Republicans still do not appreciate the enormous
importance of articulation, then forcing a shutdown of the
government can be another political disaster for them. So
can caving in to Obama.

When Metaphors Attack!


metaphors do. It's true.
Words have consequences.
I tested it: I used a sports
analogy yesterday and a pick-up game of
hoops broke out.
This is liberal-think. Silly, isn't it?
Yes, words can have consequences.
Except for when they don't. As we
soon learned and as officially "not
stupid" people already knew the
horrific shootings in Tucson on January
8 had exactly nothing to do with "tone,"
"political discourse" or "incendiary
rhetoric," and had everything to do with
mental illness, individual responsibility
and raw evil.
Not only did Jared Lee Loughner turn
out not to be a Sarah Palin-loving, Tea
Party-attending, "right-wing" talk radio
hound; he ended up being a Bush-hating,
"lefty pot-head," 9/11 "truther" whose
favorite books include the Communist
Manifesto and Mein Kampf.
So does this mean that liberals are
"accomplices to mass murder" due to their
well-documented history of "dangerous
political rhetoric"? Well, yes, if you apply
liberal-think. No, if you apply reality.
Still, this hasn't stopped the dinosaur
media, left-wing politicos and bloggity-
blah-blahs in PJs from using this tragedy
to whip together a frothy mix of feigned
indignation, slimy politicking and
"progressive" puerility.
In a not-so-thinly veiled effort to lay
blame at the feet of all things and all
people conservative, they've baked-up
a steamy meme of"violent rhetoric" pie.
It's been ugly.
That said, we're now at the point where
the left's disgraceful political exploitation
of this national tragedy has sunk to such
low-rent absurdity that it's worthy of little
more than ridicule.
Conservative pundits and mental health
experts have broadly and effectively
diagnosed, deconstructed and discredited
this obtuse "blame-everyone-but-the-
bad-guy" pablum to the point where
reasonable America left, right and
center has shared a collective eye-roll.
It's backfired magnificently.
Yet there are people, entire "news
networks" in fact, who evidently believe
that using metaphorical war imagery in
the game of politics something done
since Eve first lobbied Adam to put the
seat up is likely to cause some nutcase
to go postal (although I suppose that
could be why Cain went off on Abel).
Take CNN, for instance: In a recent
broadcast, CNN anchor John King issued
an immediate apology after a guest used,
on air and appropriately so the word


crosshairss" in a political discussion about
the Chicago mayoral race.
Said King:
We were just having a discussion
about the Chicago mayoral race. Just a
moment ago, nmyfriendAndy Shaw...
used the term "in the crosshairs," in
talking about the candidates out there.
We're trying we're trying to get away
fiomn that language. ... We won't always
beperfect. So, hold us accountable when
we don't meet your standards.
Alright, Mr. King, I'm holding you
accountable. Where's your apology? After
all, when you begged forgiveness for
airing the word crosshairss," you repeated
the word crosshairss." Shouldn't you have
said "the CH word" or some other such
nonsense?
This is political correctness. Silly, isn't it?
But apparently Republicans have
also caught the PC bug. While publicly
addressing the now-passed House version
of the officially tagged "Repealing the
Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,"
they've dropped the words "job killing"
and now use "job destroying."
Seriously, guys?
Here's an idea: Rather than capitulating
to its dictates, perhaps the best way to
"destroy" political correctness is to place it
in your crosshairss" (um, metaphorically)
and then "pull the trigger" (er,
figuratively).
Political correctness is a barrier to
truth and honest debate. It's the soft-sell,
beat-around-the-bush catalyst for our
escalating American wussification. We're
now lectured by the left as ironically as
possible that it's "insensitive" to use such
war imagery and "incendiary rhetoric" in
political discourse.
Well, Nancy-boy, life's insensitive.
Truth's insensitive. Politics are insensitive.
This isn't badminton. We're at war here.
It's a war for our culture a war of ideas.
It's a battle for the heart and soul of a still
great nation.
Conservatives, now's not the time
to play touchy-feely. It's the time for a
full-on, no-holds-barred, shock-and-awe
frontal assault. Because when the good
guys self-censor in the name of political
correctness, the bad guys win.
I know its cliche, but guns don't kill
people. If they do, then my nine-iron
sucks at golf. Neither do metaphors kill
people. No, evil people kill people. And if
you think words are to blame, then brush
your teeth.

The Hate Speech Inquisition


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


here isn't a shred of evidence
that deranged Tucson massacre
suspect Jared Loughner ever
listened to talk radio or cared
about illegal immigration. Indeed, after
300 exhaustive interviews, the feds "remain
stumped" about his motives, according to
Tuesday's Washington Post. But that hasn't
stopped a coalition of power-grabbing
politicians, progressive activists and
open-borders lobbyists from plying their
quack cure for the American body politic:
government-sponsored speech suppression.
In the immediate aftermath of the
shooting rampage, Democratic leaders
mused openly about reintroducing
the Orwellian "Fairness Doctrine"
-- a legislative sledgehammer targeting
conservative viewpoints on public
airwaves. New York Democratic Rep.
Louise Slaughter assailed the Federal
Communications Commission for failing
to police broadcast content and vowed
to "look into" more aggressive language
monitoring. Massachusetts Democratic
Rep. Ed Markey blamed "incendiary
rhetoric" for triggering "unstable
individuals to take violent action." In his
own manifesto calling for resurrection of
the Fairness Doctrine, Democratic Rep.
James Clyburn pressed public officials to
"rethink parameters on free speech."
This week's fashionable new media
meme is to deride talk radio hosts
for taking these speech-squelching
threats seriously. The Atlanta Journal-
Constitution's Jay Bookman sneered at
the "persecution complex" of conservative
broadcasters who reacted to Slaughter and
company. Politico's Keach Hagey dismissed
concerns about the Democrats' chilling
campaign against right-leaning media
outlets and knocked conservative talkers'
"defensive posture." (Sound familiar? This
is the same tactic they used against Sarah
Palin and all those on the right falsely
accused of being accessories to the Tucson
massacre: Attack 'em. Attack 'em for
responding. Accuse the smear victims of
playing the victim card. Repeat.)
Make no mistake: The Hate Speech
Inquisition is real. And it's being fought
on all fronts. Last week, using the non-
radio-inspired Tucson massacre as fuel, the
National Hispanic Media Coalition called
on the FCC to gather evidence for the left's
preconceived conclusion that conservative
talk radio "hate speech" causes violence.
It's Red Qcuen science -- sentence first,
research validation later.
The head of the NHMC is Alex
Nogales, who has filed more than 50
petitions to deny broadcast licenses and
has led anti-corporate crusades to "force"
broadcast stations across the country "to


hire Latino
reporters
and anchors"
and adopt
"diversity
initiatives."
Grabbing
the Tucson
shooting
limelight,
Nogales told
Broadcasting
and Cable magazine last week:
"We can't stand there with our arms
crossed and make like there isn't a reason
why this is happening. ... We started this
dialogue) in the last immigration debate
four years ago. We could see that it was just
out of control. It started with just an issue
of immigration, then every pundit on radio
and TV who wanted an audience started
talking about it and started using the worst
of language, and now it has spilled out into
mainstream."
Loughner's wild Internet rants and
creepy campus meltdowns clearly
demonstrate that crazy doesn't need a
motive. But progressive censors need their
bogeymen, and Nogales isn't about to give
them up for reality's sake. The NHMC
first filed a petition in October 2009
demanding that the FCC collect data, seek
public comment and "explore options" for
combating "hate speech" from staunch
critics of illegal immigration. The petition
followed on National Council of La Raza
President Janet Murguia's call for media
outlets to keep immigration enforcement
proponents off the airwaves "even if
such censorship were a violation of First
Amendment rights."
Nogales' group is part of a larger "media
justice" coalition dedicated to curtailing
and redistributing conservatives' political
speech under the guise of diversity and
decency. As left-wing philanthropists
at the Media Justice Fund put it: The
movement "is grounded in the belief
that social and economic justice will
not be realized without the equitable
redistribution and control of media and
communication technologies." But, hey, we
better just ignore these communications
control freaks lest we be accused of
suffering a "persecution complex."
The Praetorian Guards of civility keep
telling us that "words matter." Threats
should be taken seriously, they insist.
Except, of course, when those words and
threats are uttered by those hell-bent on
regulating their opponents' discourse out of
existence.

Hitting the High


Notes in Life


Everyone else was just sort of looking off
into space, like maybe they didn't hear the
choir director ask for a volunteer. Perhaps
they needed to pray about it first? I was
obviously the only one who realized the
urgency of the matter, so I raised my hand.
What can I say? I was new to
Christianity, and eager to please. I hadn't
even experienced my first burn out yet,
so I was completely ignorant of the subtle
tactics of evasion, or the value of the
phrase, "I don't feel led."
Practice C.D.'s were handed out after
the meeting, and I motored straight out
to my truck to begin practicing for my
new assignment. To my delight, I'd been
drafted to sing lead on the song 'Go tell it
on the Mountain' during the grand finale
at our upcoming Christmas production.
For the next six weeks leading up to the
show, everywhere I went, my old clunker
was rocking. I had dogs lining up all along
my route to work each day waiting for their
cue to howl. By the fifth week I'd even
memorized the words. Everything was
progressing nicely.
The people in the choir were so nice
too. They'd always smile so big after we
practiced my song, almost like I was
helping bring laughter back to their lives.
Inevitably a couple of them would come
up afterwards to slap me on the back and
encourage me to keep practicing.
However, there was one little note I was
having problems with. Right at the end of
the song I was supposed to belch out this
blazing high note that would really bring
down the house. The problem was; that
note was way out of my area code. I just
couldn't seem to hitch my pants up high
enough to hit it, and believe me I tried.
Unfortunately, my best efforts had failed to
surpass the tonal quality of a wounded sea
gull making his last dying wail.
Finally the choir director sat me down.
"Just leave out that note," she urged,
"When you get to that part, go low."
It was sound advice. (No pun intended.)
I tried it. It wasn't bad. Problem solved- I
guess. I mean if you're really in to working
folks up to a beautiful crescendo only to
finishing strong with a sad little "low"
note.
But anyway- When the night of the
show came I got all gussied up in my fancy
duds usually reserved for funerals and such,
and headed out. The Church was a-buzz
with excitement. The house lights came
down and we took the platform in all the

Williston Holy Family Hosts Fish Fry
Feb. 11
The Ladies Guild and Fellwship Ministry HI oly
Family of Williston is having a Fish Fry meal at
our church on the Fri. Feb. 11 at 5 p.m.. The adult
price is only $7. The child's price is $4. There are
always "Take Outs" available. his fundraiser is
held to help people in our community with their
financial problems.
We do have door prizes of a free ticket to the


full pageantry
of our
immense $300
production.
I'll admit,
our choir was
a little shaky
at first, but
as the night
progressed we
relaxed and
really fell into
a wonderful
groove. Soon
we were

great confidence, especially after we'd
thinned out the crowd so.
When the time finally came for my
song, I was really feeling strong. I couldn't
believe what was bellowing from my own
lips. I almost questioned whether they'd
really hidden Jim Neighbors behind the
curtain and given me a dummy mic. I
sounded good! In fact, as I got closer to
that big crescendo, I even began to have
second thoughts about my decision to go
'low'. Obviously the anointing was carrying
me. Why wimp out on the best part?
Surely by this point of the story, some of
you more seasoned Christians are rooting
for me, and hoping I hadn't been too over
zealous and put too much stock in those
Scriptures they teach new believers like
Ephesians 3:20. (Now unto him that is
able to do exceeding abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the
power that worketh in us,) I mean, there's
no way God would intervene in a $300
production to help me hit a note that's
not in my repertoire just because of a little
faith, right?
Let me tell you. I not only nailed
that high note, I rattled the stain glass
windows! I even wiggled the note around
some like Mariah Carey on helium. Don't
tell me my God can't watch over His Word
to perform it.
I might just be preaching to the choir,
but maybe it's time some of us stopped
ducking every opportunity to volunteer and
started trusting God to help us hit the high
notes in our lives again. It's time to 'Go tell
it on the Mountain'! You know, like we did
back when we didn't know any better.

Yellow Bullhead from Crystal

River sets new state record


A yellow bullhead caught in the Crystal
River on Dec. 17 set the new state record
for that species, a type of catfish, according
to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) biologists.
Tom Flynn ofHomosassa was fishing
with minnows he caught at a boat ramp
when he hooked into the catfish. The new
state record yellow bullhead weighed in at
5 pounds, .75 ounces and was 20 inches in
length.
"Actually, I was fishing for mangrove
snapper," Flynn said. "However, I started
catching catfish and decided to keep them.
I caught seven and took them home."
Flynn tried to convince his wife the fish
were good eating.
"She's not really a big fan of catfish,"
Flynn said. "But she went online to check
them out and discovered that the state
record was 2.91 pounds. I knew I had
bigger fish than that."
Sure enough, when Flynn checked his
catch, he had two fish that weighed more
than the standing state record.
Eric Thomas, an FWC freshwater fish
biologist from the Ocala regional office,
verified the new record yellow bullhead.
Yellow bullhead are similar in
appearance to the more common brown
bullhead, with a nearly square tail, but the
chin barbels (whiskers) are pale yellow or


pink, unlike the somewhat larger brown
bullhead (state record: 5 pounds, 12
ounces) that has darker-pigmented chin
barbels.
The previous record was a 2.91-pound
yellow bullhead. Michael Pace caught it in
the Withlacoochee River in Levy County
on March 7, 2007.
For a fish to become an official state
record, an FWC biologist must verify
the species and weigh it on a certified
scale. However, the FWC also recognizes
anglers who catch a memorable-sized
fish with a Big Catch certificate. These
are issued for 33 different species of
freshwater fishes and are subject to less
stringent guidelines to allow an angler to
be recognized if the fish's weight or length
exceed minimum standards (see MyFWC.
cor/Fishing or the Freshwater Fishing
Regulations Summary).
For a Big Catch certificate, an adult
needs to catch a yellow bullhead that
exceeds either 14 inches in total length or
1.5 pounds (youth standards are 10 inches
and 1 pound).
The world record for this species is a
6-pound, 6-ounce yellow bullhead that
John Irvin caught in Bates County, Mo.,
on May 27, 2006.

deer taken in Florida and to
give recognition to Florida
hunters. The minimum


qualifying antler score is
100 Boone and Crockett
inches for typical antlers
and 125 for non-typical
antlers.

Of Treasure


are all of its lost treasure stories. Many such
tales fetch robust images of pirate's gold.
Others drift by rumor, whispering of some
colorful outlaw's stash. Many spin fancifully upon sunken
Spanish galleons or long-lost spoils of war. Along the way,
important finds really have been made, whetting yet more
of our imaginings, while sometimes adding to the record
valuable historical research. I've been plundering Florida's
treasure stories since I was a boy.
Among the best of the Spanish treasure stories is that
of the Tierra Firme Flota of 1622, when twenty-eight
ships left Havana, Cuba bound for Spain. Aboard them
was silver from Peru and Mexico, gold and emeralds
from Colombia, and pearls from Venezuela. But one
day out, the fleet found itself headed into a hurricane
already thrusting down on the Florida Straits. By the
next morning, eight of the vessels lay on the ocean's floor,
scattered from the Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas.
Though the ships had been lost, each manifest had been
meticulously recorded. The Atocha's cargo, for example,
was said to have been loaded with 24 tons of silver bullion,
gold bars and coins, 350 chests of indigo, 525 bales of
tobacco, 20 bronze cannon and 1,200 pounds of fine
silverware. Also scattered in the wreckage were personal
items: exquisite jewelry, handfuls of emeralds and wares
now worth millions more.
Treasure hunter Mel Fisher went in search of these
ships. I first began reading about his imaginative salvage
operations out of Key West in the earlyl970s. Fisher
and crew went about their mission with relentless
determination. The deeper they delved, the deeper in
debt the treasure salvers became. In the summer of'85,
however, in some 50 feet of water off the Dry Tortugas,
they sifted sands revealing finds beyond all imagining.
After years of disappointments resulting from breakdowns
or bad weather, severe financial losses and entangling nets
of governmental oversight, Fisher and his "golden crew"
finally located and salvaged the wrecks of both the Santa
Margarita and the Atocha worth hundreds of millions of
dollars.
Other finds are either known or speculated about in
our own area. Up in Steinhatchee on the Taylor County
coast, it's been told that several Civil War treasures are
buried along the Steinhatchee River near where it empties
into Dead Man Bay. According to legend, a Confederate
blockade-runner being chased by a Union ship was
scuttled near the mouth of the river. The crew is said to
have buried $500,000 in silver close by. In another story,
a second blockade-runner hiding near the mouth buried
$140,000 in gold coins before a Federal gunboat could
overtake them. After the war reportedly, members of
that crew returned to claim the money, but flood tides
had washed away their markers and altered the landscape
along the river.
Down along the Suwannee it's rumored that an old
treasure hunter, Bill Sneed, found $625,000 in gold
bullion and coins at the mouth of the river. In the 1950s,

Preserving Florida
History." And they meet
every 3rd Thursday, Oct. to
May, at Gander Mountain
at the intersection of 175
and SR 40 to discuss and
learn more about their true
mission finding historical
artifacts in Florida soil.
They also put together
exhibits at different local
spots to spotlight their
current "finds." The next
one will be at the new
Dunnellon Public Library
from Jan. 31 through the
month of February and
will include local artifacts,
antique equipment, and
a Seminole War Period
cannonball.
The MFHRRA goes
out on one major hunt a
month. They do not hunt
on National Forests unless it
is privately-owned property.
They actually dig up history.
In Marion County,
between Ocala and
Dunnellon, there used to be
a town called Leroy. Leroy
may be a ghost town to the
naked eye, but underground
it still exists. And the
members of MFHRRA


devote themselves to
bringing up the artifacts that prove to
us that existence and then they share
them in exhibits.
They have used detectors and
flagged areas that look uninhabited
from the top but upon performing a
3-foot square by 1-meter deep shovel
pit test the discovery comes forth
that it was an old homestead at one
time, or part of an old trail complete
with artifacts and antiques from the

journey.
A speaker at a previous meeting
provided a most interesting collage of
pictures starting with an 1843 map
of the old Ft. King Trail from Tampa
to Ocala on which he superimposed
a 1940 picture and finished off with
a present-day Google aerial shot
superimposed over that. History
is actually in the making and the
MFHRRA is showing it off to
all who want to have a hands-on


experience with what made Florida
what it is today.
If you are interested in furthering
your history knowledge and maybe
helping someday to also be of service
to our local law enforcement agencies
give MFHRRA President Bill
Beardsley a call at 352-873-9953.
He will assuredly infect you with
the enthusiasm of knowing Florida's
unique and varied history in a way you
never experienced before.

11th Annual STARS

(Superintendent's) Gala

Set for Feb. 12


The Levy County Schools Foundation
(LCSF) will be hosting its annual Gala
on Saturday, February 12, 2011. The
event will take place at 6:00 p.m., at
Williston Middle School. The STARS
Gala (Students, Teachers, and Respected
Supporters) -formerly known as the
Superintendent's Gala, is the Foundation's
premier fundraising event. For the Levy
County Schools Foundation, a not-for-
profit organization established in 1989 to
support Levy County schools, this event
has become a Levy County tradition which
provides an opportunity for members of
the business community, civic leaders, and
local residents to gather in support of local
education. An exciting evening is planned
with a wonderful meal, exceptional
student entertainment, a special guest
speaker, door prizes, a silent auction, and
recognition of the Foundation's Alumni of
the Year.
Superintendent Bob Hastings, who
will also serve as emcee for the evening,
had this to say: "The Gala not only raises
funds, but also showcases the talent of our
students, and highlights the generous and
continuing support of so many corporate
and small business partners, as well as local
residents who want to insure our students'
academic success."
The past ten Galas have raised a total
of more than $98,000 to support a variety
of education-related initiatives and help
the Foundation expand its mission. The
proceeds of the 2011 Gala will help the
Foundation support the LCSF Levy


County Scholarship Program which
awarded over $58,000 in the past year
alone. Other projects of the Foundation
include: literacy initiatives, classroom and
school grants, teacher, staff and volunteer
recognition, supplemental support of
vocational education, and mentoring
programs. The Foundation actively pursues
grant opportunities and this past year
received State Matching Grant funds for
$12,400 which is being combined with a
Progress Energy Grant for $17,000 to fund
STEM Education-Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics, through
the Levy County School Board's Career
and Technical Education Program.
The Foundation has established three
contribution levels for the STARS Gala.
All donors will be recognized at the event.
The levels are:
GOLD TABLE PATRONS:
contributions of $1,000 or more; SILVER
TABLE PATRONS: contributions of

Old Florida Celebration of the Arts


If plain old curiosity
hasn't yet inspired you to
visit the town currently
competing for Budget
Travel's best small town
in America, then mark
April 2nd and 3rd on your
calendar for an excursion
to the western terminus
of State Route 24. That's
when you'll have the added
incentive of enjoying Cedar
Key's annual Old Florida
Celebration of the Arts.
Unlike many art festivals


and most craft fairs, this
one is juried to ensure
original artistry and
fine craftsmanship. One
hundred and thirty artists
chosen to participate this
year will compete for over
$10,000 in prize money
and purchase awards. The
charming and Historic
Second Street will become
a pedestrian-only mall for
this weekend event, both
sides lined with booths
displaying art and fine
crafts in many different
media oils, acrylics,
prints, jewelry, ceramics,
photography, stained glass,
woodwork, sculpture, fiber
and textiles.
A few steps beyond the
booths is City Park, where
children will have sidewalk
chalk art, face painting,
a playground and beach.
You can listen to music in
the park while lunching


on seafood and desserts
prepared and sold by local
school, civic and church
organizations. You won't
soon forget the Garden
Club's homemade-from-
scratch lemonade or Tony's
World Champion clam
chowder.
If you have time for a
leisurely visit, consider
arriving a few days early or
leaving a few days later. It
will give you the chance to
enjoy the quiet charm of
Cedar Key, its waterways,
its bird life, its museums,
shops and restaurants.
You can walk or cycle the
entire town, photograph
magnificent oaks and
historic architecture, rent
a kayak, charter a fishing
trip, cast a line from the
town dock, go birding,
watch incredible sunsets,
or stay up late stargazing.

During the week you can
join one of eight free yoga
classes. Wander through
the local art galleries or
visit the Cedar Key Pottery
Studio and see where their
signature flat blue glaze
originates. Or bring an easel
and meet up with a group of
plein air artists.
Cedar Key is made up
of a chain of small barrier
islands extending three
miles out into the Gulf
of Mexico; the currently-
inhabited keys are joined by
short bridges (which also
make popular fishing spots).
Thirteen other islands
make up one of the oldest
National Wildlife Refuges
in the country, providing
habitat to vast numbers of
migratory and shore birds.
There are daily boat tours
to the island of Atsena
Otie, site of the original
settlement and home to
an Eberhard Faber pencil


factory, but devastated by
a hurricane at the end of
the 19th century and never
rebuilt.
The coastal waters and
tidal marshes of the Cedar
Keys are a fisherman's
paradise and support an
important clam farming
industry. Depending on
the season and the weather,
your catch of the day on
inshore waters may include
red drum, black drum or
trout.
The Old Florida
Celebration of the Arts
is easy to find. Take State
Route 24 (Archer Road)
out of Gainesville and drive
southwest to the end of the
road, about 60 miles. You
can also pick up SR24 at
Archer, Bronson or Otter
Creek if you are coming
from other directions.
Aviation buffs can even
fly here (www.airnav.com/

as they can land and take
off with about 2000 feet of
runway.

Williston-Special Pit mix. She is black,
brown and white with beautiful markings.
She is a strong-willed dog and needs a
competent "alpha" human to lead her. She
is wormed and current on her shots. She
is good with people and other dogs. She
is not good with cats. She is crate trained
and will be a good watch dog. She is
seeking her new forever home.
"Charlie Brown" is a 1-yr-old, neutered
male Akita mix. He is a large, black and

Will Irby continued from page 8


Sneed operated the Wilmary Motel in
Lakeland, Florida where he often regaled
his guests with tales of his Suwannee
Sound treasure-hunting adventures.
Upriver there are several claims
to treasure finds on the Suwannee,
particularly those along Fowlers Bluff.
Most promising are those involving Jean
Lafitte, the smuggler and privateer of
Revolutionary War fame. As one of his
biographer's wrote, Lafitte possessed "a
more accurate knowledge of every inlet
from the Gulf than any other man."
Fowlers Bluff, about 15 miles upriver from
where Bill Sneeds claimed to have made
his find, was a likely hangout for LaFitte,
as well as other nefarious Florida legends
like Jose Gaspar, Billy "Bowlegs" Rogers,
and Black Caesar.
Nobody seems to know for sure, but at
least one early treasure hunter, a sawmill
operator named Emmett Baird, may have
found one of Lafitte's treasure troves on
that bluff. In June 1945, The Saturday
Evening Post published a story about the
Suwannee's pirate gold. According the
Post's version, in the late 1800's an old
riverman near death gave young Baird
a treasure map. Baird and his business
partner went down on the Suwannee to
check it out. After about three months of
digging, Baird announced that he'd had
enough and that his venture had been only
a fool's errand after all.
But maybe not. Some locals claimed to
have seen two mule-drawn wagons depart
late in the night. They would tell that their
heavily laden tracks remained for weeks
in that sandy bluff. Then there was this:
Over in Gainesville, Baird soon began to
invest substantially in businesses, including
a bank and a hardware store. In its prime,
that store became one of the largest in
Florida. In 1900 Baird also bought one of
Gainesville's finest mansions.
Even today there's an excavation going
on at Fowler's Bluff. The last I looked in
on it, a St. Petersburg landscaper owned
the bluff property where an 'X' is said to
be made on some treasure map. This fellow
and his investors have a mysterious salvage
operation ongoing, whereby they're said to
be burrowing down through the skeletal
lime rock foundation of the bluff. Some
years ago, they allegedly found mahogany
chips and flecks of gold on their wetsuits
and drill bits. Even if true, the ever-elusive
chest of gold is said to sink ever deeper
in the silt. Maybe so. Few believed Mel
Fisher, either.
Some tales hearken back to Indians and
trader treasures. Up at Old Clay Landing
there's a story about the Arbuthnot trading
post treasure. More precisely, it was said
that there was a gunpowder keg of coins
Arbuthnot's son buried "on an oak ridge"
back in the woods behind the trading post.
That was in 1818 when he learned Andrew
Jackson's army was n-arching on Bowleg'i


"Dallas" is a 10-mo-old, neutered male
Williston-Special mixed breed. He is
black and tan. He weighs 35-50 lbs. He
is current on his shots and wormed. He
is very skittish right now and needs
socialization. He is seeking his forever
home.

Town across the river. I've told this story
in these pages before, but this was when
Arbuthnot the elder sent word from St.
Marks that Jackson would clean out the
Suwannee trade post for trading with the
enemy. Young Arbuthnot evidently made
a map, illustrating a hand axe deep in the
fork of an oak to mark his spot. Somebody
believed that story. There's a location in the
vicinity described that's riddled and pocked
with excavations. Interestingly enough, this
is the location where the naturalist, author
and illustrator Alpheus Hyatt Verrill (who
came to live in Levy County in 1937)
found a "tommy axe" head such as was used
in trade. Verrill reportedly made a gift of
his find to the museum on Cedar Key.
Another intriguing local legend involves
the lost treasury of the Confederacy. This
is a rather well-documented episode, at
least up until the time the treasure gets to
Archer and the Cottonwood Plantation
owned by Senator David Yulee Levy for
whom Levy County is named.
In May 1865 during the last gasp of the
Civil War, the Confederate capitol (then
at Richmond, Virginia) was evacuated
ahead of the Northern invasion. President
Davis and a number of high-ranking
government officials made their way south.
In their keeping and under guard were
important state documents and the remains
of the Confederate treasury estimated at
$700,000 in gold. The plan was to elude
Federal troops and set up a government
in exile in either the Bahamas or Cuba.
Nothing went well. The cortege became
divided, as did the treasury. On May 15th,
a wagon train carrying about $25,000
in gold coin and the personal baggage
ofJefferson Davis crossed into Florida.
The group traveled slowly and cautiously,
not only to evade Federal patrols, but
also outlaw gangs of deserters (both
Confederate and Federals) that raided
inland from hideouts in the swamps of
Levy County.
The wagon and its Confederate guard
reached Cottonwood Plantation on May
22nd. There they learned that Senator
Yulee was away (he'd later be captured in
Gainesville and imprisoned for aiding and
abetting the Confederacy). Mrs. Yulee
informed the soldiers that Jefferson Davis
had already been captured in Georgia. In a
quandary that night, they made their camp
on the grade of Yulee's Florida Railroad.
What happened to the gold after that is
told in various ways. Some speculate that
it was buried on the plantation. Others
say it got divided up among the guard
by their captain. Still other versions have
the treasure buried as far south as the
Everglades, or say that it made its way to
South America. In any case, you can be
sure that if we plunder about long enough,
there will be yet another incarnation with a
pirate in it somewhere.

Bronson's David Viker named Chief of VU


SE Region's National Wildlife Refuge 11


U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service veteran manager David
Viker has been named the new chief of the Southeast
Region's National Wildlife Refuge System, SE Regional
Director Cindy Dohner announced.
He will lead more than 750 employees on 130 national
wildlife refuges in 10 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.
Virgin Islands.
Viker has served since 2005 as chief of the Southeast's
Division of Migratory Birds.
"As a young boy, I was the self-appointed steward of
the woods, creeks, ponds, and trails behind my home,"
Viker said. "Within one hour of stepping foot on Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge as a teenager, I knew
what specific job I wanted to serve in for the rest of my life."


| "*


"Like so many people and organizations, tough budget
years are in the near-term forecast for us," Viker added.
"An unparalleled conservation mission and exceptional
staff will see us through as we work with a strong and
diverse conservation community rallying together
like never before to accomplish our most important
conservation goals."
An 18-year veteran of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, Viker studied wildlife ecology at the University of
Florida while volunteering at Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge. After graduation, he worked at 10
national wildlife refuges. He moved from the field to the
Southeast Regional Office in Atlanta in 2002 to serve as a
Deputy Refuge Supervisor.


As chief of the region's
Migratory Bird program and
an active member of the
regional leadership team,
Viker has served as an expert
consultant on many Service
migratory bird-related programs and other issues; helped
stand up Landscape Conservation Cooperatives; and
helped coordinate the Service's response to preserving
wildlife threatened by the Deepwater Hoiizon oil spill.
Viker came with his mother and brother to Bronson
when he was in the 6th grade and attended Bronson
schools. He was a star member of the basketball team,
along with classmate Kelly Beckham, from 7th to 12th
grade. He and his family currently live in Georgia
where he has also coached more than 30 youth baseball,
basketball, softball and soccer teams.

The Log Cabin Quilters
met Thursday, Jan 20th
at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Our days are
really busy now. Some
of our Northern ladies are
back and it's so good to
have them with us.
It seems like we're
getting in a lot of clothes
now. My friend who lived
in Tampa passed away
and her husband wanted
us to have what she left.
There are suits, bath robes,
gowns, sock, blouses and so
much more. We are going
to have a lot of her craft


Quilters
goodies as she made many
crafts, so if you can, come
out and see what we have.
We will be bringing more
up when we go to Tampa
again.
We have taken
everything to the Fair so
next week we go to help
with the judging.
Thursday lunch was so
good with soup, turkey and
rice, beans, egg salad, bean
casserole, blueberry pie,
pumpkin bars and so much
more.
