One Suspect Eludes K-9s in Chiefland Armed Robbery,

Two Others Arrested


On Dec. 11, 2010 the Levy County Sheriffs Office
received a robbery alarm at Tienda Mexican Store. The
victim advised the Communication Center that the three
suspects left in a white Ford Explorer. Prior to arriving
at the store the vehicle was located in the parking lot of
Stones BP gas station. Two suspects were seen entering
the Tienda Mexican Store and a third suspect was getting
out of the Explorer. One of the suspects, Norbin Dejesus
Medina, 35, was apprehended at that time and taken into
custody and the other two suspects fled on foot through
a heavily wooded area. Three Sheriffs Office K-9s were
utilized in tracking the men for more than three hours,
but the two suspects were able to elude deputies.
The investigation revealed that the suspects entered the
store at approximately 9:50 a.m. The suspects acted like


they were going to make a purchase and while at the cash
register demanded money while armed with a gun. The
clerk and the male customer were pistol-whipped, and the
male was tied up. The suspects robbed the clerk and the
customer of an undisclosed amount of money and fled in
the above vehicle.
This is the second time this store has been robbed at
gunpoint. In October the store was robbed at gun point
and the same modus operandi was used during that
robbery.
Later in the day a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier, Florida
tag 713-WTZ, was stolen from Discount Liquor in
Chiefland. The victim left the vehicle running and went
into the liquor store only to find the vehicle was stolen. It
is believed that the two armed suspects stole the vehicle


and may be traveling to the south Florida area. On
January 27, the stolen Chevrolet Cavalier was located by
Lantana Police Department
in front of a motel.The
second robbery suspect,
Raul Pagan Rodriguez was
arrested on a Palm Beach
County warrant and charged
with two counts of armed
robbery. The third suspect is
still at large and at this time
his identity is unknown.

Man with Shovel

Shot While Attacking

Deputy
On Wednesday afternoon, Sheriffs deputies responded to a residence
off SE 905 Street in Old Town. According to the 9-1-1 call, the caller
was having problems with her brother and was concerned about his
behavior. At the time of the call, dispatchers were told that the suspect,
Richard Yearwood, 32, from Old Town, had walked off from the
residence, and deputies were given his direction of travel. Responding
deputies searched the area but were unable to locate Yearwood. One of
the deputies then went to the caller's home and upon arrival observed
Yearwood standing on the porch of the residence.
The deputy then notified the other two deputies of his observations
and approached Yearwood. Yearwood was non-compliant with verbal
commands to put down a shovel he was holding and, as the third deputy
arrived on scene, he charged off the porch and began swinging the
shovel at the deputy. The deputy while stepping backward discarded his
chemical agent and was attempting to draw his weapon when he fell.
Yearwood was continuing to disregard verbal commands to drop the
shovel and once again swung the shovel
at the deputy on the ground only to strike
the side of a parked car. As he raised. s
the shovel again to strike at the deputy W S
once more, the second-arriving deputy
discharged his weapon multiple times
striking Yearwood more than once in the
lower frontal torso.
EMS was immediately called and
transported Yearwood to the Old Town
heliport where he was transferred to
Shands at UF by helicopter. Investigators
secured the scene of the shooting
and awaited the arrival of the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement Crime
Lab and agents. Sheriff Hatcher requested:' .
that FDLE conduct the criminal aspect of
the investigation into the incident to avoid
any allegations of bias.
Sheriff Hatcher has also appointed an
internal review team of one deputy, one
investigator and one investigator from
the State's Attorney Office to review the
internal aspects of the shooting incident in
order to verify that it was handled within
policy guidelines.

USDA Designates Nature Coast Counties in

Florida as Primary Natural Disaster Areas


The U.S. Department of Agriculture has
designated 26 counties in Florida as primary
natural disaster areas due to losses caused
by frost and freezes that occurred Nov. 5 to
Dec. 17, 2010.
Alachua, Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
counties are declared primary natural
disasters areas.
All counties listed above were designated
natural disaster areas Jan. 25, 2011,
making all qualified farm operators in the
designated areas eligible for low interest
emergency (EM) loans from USDA's Farm
r 41


Service Agency (FSA), provided eligibility
requirements are met. Farmers in eligible
counties have eight months from the date
of the declaration to apply for loans to help
cover part of their actual losses. FSA will
consider each loan application on its own
merits, taking into account the extent of
losses, security available and repayment
ability. FSA has a variety of programs, in
addition to the EM loan program, to help
eligible farmers recover from adversity.

Florida's Attorney General Takes

Emergency Measures Against Bath Salts


Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, has taken
emergency measures to halt the sale of psychoactive
substances known as "bath salts" under authority granted
in Florida Statutes 893.035(7)(a). The emergency rule
effectively adds MDPV (Methylenedioxypyrovalerone)
and its derivatives to Florida's list of Schedule 1 drugs
making the purchase, possession or sale a third degree
felony. The ruling took effect on January 26, 2011 and
includes products marketed under the names: Ivory Wave,
Vanilla Sky, Pure Ivory, White Rush, Purple Wave, Blue
Silk, Purple Rain, Ocean Wave, Bolivian Bath, White
Lightning, TranQuility and Route 69.
Medical personnel have reported some serious side
effects exhibited by the use of the above "bath salts"
that include muscle damage, kidney failure, circulatory
problems to include increased blood pressure, seizures,
hallucinations, aggression, paranoia and panic attacks.
These products being sold as "bath salts" are not
those commonly used in baths, authorities say. Some
manufacturers are making designer drugs being sold as
"bath salts," said Wendy Stephan, health educator with
the Florida Poison Information Center in Miami.
Users usually snort the powder and experience effects
similar to cocaine and crystal meth, said Dr. Nahil El
Sanadi, chief of emergency medicine for Broward County.


But the euphoria often leads to the abuser coming in
confused, disoriented, and with high blood pressure.
Retailers and others who are in possession of any of
these products can turn them in to the Levy County
Sheriffs Department, the Williston Police Department,
and the Chiefland Police Department without fear of
arrest or prosecution at this time. This is not to imply that
there is a "grace period." Persons in possession of these
substances who fail to offer them up to police can be
arrested and prosecuted under the law.
Other substances known as synthetic cannabinoids are
likely to be illegal in the near future. "K-2" and "Spice"
are just two names of the products that the Florida
Legislature has in committee at this time to schedule as
illicit drugs. Retailers are forewarned that they will likely
become illegal in the coming weeks and they would be
well advised to avoid re-orders of these products.
Many local law enforcement agencies have issued
press releases relating to the recall of these dangerous
substances. Retail stores in Levy County that are in
possession of any of these products can turn them in to
any local law enforcement agency or office, including
the Levy County Sheriffs Office, The Williston Police
Department or the Dixie County Sheriffs office without
fear of arrest. Major Evan Sullivan of the LCSO said "We
will make every effort to
1--l--ArA-,hlte retari + - _1--


WorK with me retail stores
but non-compliance will
result in arrest".

Don't Text And Drive

Parents and others can take steps to drive down the
dreadful rate of traffic injuries and fatalities. An estimated
6,000 people are killed and 500,000 people are injured
annually because someone was testing, e-mailing or
talking on a mobile phone while driving.
Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and LG Text
Ed council member, explains that for teens, texting and
driving is an even bigger problem than it is for adults.
First, kids text more. Texting is their preferred mode of
communication. According to a recent LG Text Ed survey
conducted by LG Mobile phones, while half of all teens
admit to texting while driving, only 4 percent of parents
are aware of this.
Second, teens are inherently novices when it comes
to driving. They especially need to focus on the road to
compensate for any lack of driving skill or experience.
Third, teens can literally be driven to distraction.
If a teen is caught up in a dramatic or tense texting
conversation, it could be too enticing to focus on the
phone instead of the road.
An estimated 11 percent of drivers are talking on cell
phones while driving at any point during the day.
1. Impress upon teens the need to not text or talk on the
phone while driving by not doing so yourself. Beyond
providing an example of responsible behavior, this
creates a safer driving environment.
2. Explain to your teens the seriousness of the situation
and let them know that it is important to have a plan
in order to avoid temptation. For example, have them
always keep their cell phone off while driving or in the
backseat out of reach to avoid distraction completely.
3. Learn more from the experts in mobile technology at
LG by visiting the company's LG Text Ed website,
www.lgtexted.com. As part of its Text Education
campaign, LG offers insights and solutions on how
to avoid possibly harmful behaviors such as distracted
driving. In order to keep distractions to a minimum,
LG encourages all drivers to never text while driving
and to always use a hands-free Bluetooth device when
operating a vehicle.

New Heroes vs. Old


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


When I mention that my
family used kerosene lamps
when I was a small child in
the South during the 1930s,
that is usually taken as a
sign of our poverty, though
I never thought of us as poor
at the time.
What is ironic is that
kerosene lamps were a "
luxury of the rich in the .'
19th century, before John .
D. Rockefeller came along. "
At the high price of kerosene at that time, an ordinary
working man could not afford to stay up at night, burning
this expensive fuel for hours at a time.
Rockefeller did not begin his life as rich, by any means.
He made a fortune by revolutionizing the petroleum
industry. Although we still measure petroleum in barrels,
it is actually shipped in railroad tank cars, in ocean-going
tankers and in tanker trucks.
That is a legacy of John D. Rockefeller, who saw that
shipping oil in barrels was not as economical as shipping
whole railroad tank cars full of oil, eliminating all the
labor that had to go into shipping the same amount of oil
in numerous individual barrels.
That was just one of his cost-cutting innovations.
If there was a better way to extract, process and ship


petroleum products-- or more products that could be
made from petroleum-- Rockefeller was on top of it.
Before he came along, gasoline was considered a useless
by-product that petroleum refineries often simply dumped
into the nearest river. But Rockefeller decided to use it as
a fuel in the refining process, which made it valuable, even
before automobiles came along.
Today, we tend to think of John D. Rockefeller as just
one of those famous rich people. But Rockefeller didn't
just "happen to have money." How he got rich is the
real story-- and it is a story whose implications reach far
beyond that one particular individual.
Before Rockefeller's innovations reduced the price of
kerosene to a fraction of what it had once been, there
wasn't a lot for poor people to do when nightfall came,
other than go to bed. But the advent of cheap kerosene
added hours of light and activity to each day for people
with low or moderate incomes.
It was much the same story with the advent of the
automobile, which gave millions of people more range in
space, as kerosene (and, later, electricity) gave them more
range in terms of hours of daily activity.
Here again, automobiles and electric lights were truly
luxuries of the rich when they began. Only after ways
were developed to cut their costs drastically were such
things brought within the reach of ordinary Americans.
Henry Ford's mass production methods cut in half the
cost of producing the famous Model T Ford in just five
years. People who had once lived their entire lives within
a narrow radius of a relatively few miles could now go
see places they never knew about before. The automobile
expanded their horizons.


People today who complain about the automobile's
pollution have no idea how much more pollution there
was before the automobile came along. In New York City,
for example, the 40,000 horses that were the backbone of
the city's transportation, before the automobile, produced
400 tons of manure per working day, along with 20,000
gallons of urine.
At one time, people like Rockefeller, Edison, Ford and
the Wright brothers were regarded as heroes, for having
opened vast new possibilities for other human beings. The
fact that they got rich doing it was an incidental part of
the story.
We still have people revolutionizing our lives. Just
think of the computer and the pharmaceutical drugs that
have not only lengthened our lives but made them more
healthful, so that being 80 years old today is like being 60
years old in times past.
But today we seldom even know the names of those
who have made these monumental contributions to
human well-being. All we know is that some people have
gotten "rich" and that this is to be regarded as some sort
of grievance.
Many of the people we honor today are people who
are skilled in the rhetoric of grievances and promises of
new "rights" at someone else's expense. But is that what is
going to make a better America?

In his book The LiberalBetrayalof
America and the Tea Party Firestorm,
Dr. William Davis Eaton relates how it
all began on December 3, 1964 on the
campus of the University of California at
Berkeley, when war was declared against
all aspects of American society.
Following Berkeley's lead, campus
protests, sit-ins, and riots were instigated
in hundreds of colleges and universities
across the' country, all propagating an
insurgent hatred of America. As the
rioting students of the 60s graduated
into society they began their "long march
through the institutions" of America,
generating what has come to be known as
the culture war. Some stayed on to secure
campus radicalism as tenured professors.
This is not conjecture on Eaton's part -
it is based on what he himself learned
as a former professor who taught at the
University of California, Berkeley, where
he earned a PhD in political science.
Eaton's book maintains that "the
culture war was, in fact, a muted Civil
War with the purpose of destroying
that which exists and replacing it with
something else. This new Civil War
directly affects, among others, universities
and schools, the media, churches, sexual
behavior, the family, courts, the rule of
law and has, in one way or another,
captured, corrupted or destroyed the main
ideals and institutions of our nation."
However, Eaton believes "this Civil
War lacked a coherent goal a leader to
form and guide its deceptive power to a
specific end to create a vision of what
was to replace what was being destroyed."
In the presidential election of 2008 that
leader appeared, and to a restless nation,
his cries of Hope and Change rang true.
The meaning of 'transformative' change
-that was hinted at in campaign rhetoric


On behalf of the Chiefland High School
Fellowship of Christian Athletes and our
school clubs Beta, Health Occupations
Students of America (HOSA), Interact,
Future Business Leaders of America
(FBLA), Future Farmers of America
(FFA), and the Student Government
Association (SGA), we would like to
thank the following organizations for their
contributions toward "Live the Gift" -
Christmas Blessings 2010: Capital City
Bank, Chiefland Ministerial Association,
Concord Baptist Church, Drummond
Community Bank, Flowers Bakery,
Harmony Baptist Association, Perkins
State Bank, Wal Mart, and the Tri-
County Community.
Though belated, we are pleased to
provide an update of what can happen
when school and community come
together for a common goal. Because of
your contributions and our collaborative
efforts, we were able to accomplish the
following this past holiday season: provided


became abundantly clear after January
20, 2009 when Americans were informed
that their country is no longer a Christian
nation, or an exceptional nation. "That,"
Eaton says, "is when the Sleeping Giant
of the true America was awakened and
the Tea Party was born." The Liberal
Betrayal of America and the Tea Party
Firestorm describes "transformative"
change as the instrument of an insurgent
intent to destroy and replace. "But if the
institutions and hopes of a free society are
to be discarded and society transformed,
both logic and history tell us that the
society to come will be un-free and
without hope."
Eaton points to the description made b)
the first president of the Czech Republic
after the breakup of the Soviet Union
when he said "totalitarian tyranny is layer
upon layer of impenetrable bureaucracies,'
with each bureau designed to monitor
and regulate some aspect of the lives of
those under its boot until the lives and
hopes of every citizen is subject to the
long tentacles of government regulation.
Eaton believes this is exactly what awoke
the sleeping American giant in the form
of the Tea Party that saw the enactment
ofhealthcare, financial regulation and
government control of the auto, banking,
and other industries as leading to a
complete transformation of their system
of free enterprise and constitutional
government.
Dr. Eaton believes his book gives
answers to why Americans were so ready
to receive the Tea Party; fearful that
their nation was starting to look more
like the mayhem in Europe, created
by entitlement and dependence on
government, than one that was founded
Son private enterprise and individual
freedoms.


FFA with toys toward their Toys for Tots
Drive; presented three area outreach
organizations (Another Way, Tri-County
Outreach, and the Food Pantry) with boxes
of non-perishable food items (more than 25
boxes of food were gathered!), Provided a
donation to our CMS/CHS lunchroom to
help with their lunch fund and presented
two significant donations to Another Way
and Tri-County Outreach.
Positive responses are still coming in,
and we believe this will culminate in an
annual event for Chiefland High School.
Mark your calendars now we've already

Waivers for Favors: Big Labor's

Obamacare Escape Hatch


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


President Obama's storytellers recently
launched a White House blog series called
"Voices of Health Reform," where "readers
can meet average Americans already
benefiting from the health reform law."
I propose a new White House series:
"Voices of Health Reform Waivers," where
taxpayers can meet all the politically
connected unions benefiting from exclusive
get-out-of-Obamacare passes -- after
squandering millions of their workers'
dues to lobby for the job-killing, private
insurance-sabotaging law from which they
are now exempt.
At the end of last year, the Department
of Health and Human Services had
granted some 222 temporary waivers
to businesses small and large, insurers,
labor and other organizations that offer
affordable health insurance or prescription
drug coverage with limited benefits. On
Wednesday, the agency quietly updated its
online list, which now reveals a whopping
total of 729 Obamacare escapees -- in
addition to four states, Massachusetts,
New Jersey, Ohio and Tennessee -- who
collectively cover about 2.1 million
enrollees.
At least one eyebrow-raising waiver
recipient -- the left-leaning, nationalized
health care-promoting Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation -- has direct ties to
the White House. Obama health care
czar Nancy-Ann DeParle sits on the
foundation's board of trustees.
Most noteworthy: One-fourth of all the
waivers (182) so far have gone to Big Labor
groups across the country.
The Teamsters Union, which hailed
Obama last March for "enacting historic
health care reform, providing health
insurance to millions of Americans who
don't have it and controlling costs for
millions more who do," obtained waivers
for 17 different locals.
The United Food and Commercial
Workers International Union (UFCW),
which celebrated the passage of Obamacare
as "an achievement that will rank among
the highest in our national experience,"
secured waivers for 28 different affiliates.
The International Brotherhood of
Electrical Workers -- which exulted after
the health care law's passage that "finally,
affordable and comprehensive health care
coverage will be available for millions of
working Americans" -- saw eight of its
affiliates win shelter from the Obamacare
wrecking ball.
The Communications Workers of
America, which sent its workers to lobby
for Obamacare on Capitol Hill as part of
the left-wing billionaire George Soros-
funded Health Care for America Now


front group,
snagged a
waiver that
will spare
a hefty
19,000 of
its members
from the
onerous
federal
mandate.
And
the Service Employees International
Union, which poured $60 million into
Democratic/Obama coffers in 2008 and
millions more into the campaign for the
federal health care takeover, added four
new affiliates to the waiver list: SEIU
Local 2000 Health and Welfare Fund,
representing 161 enrollees; SEIU 32BJ
North Health Benefit Fund, representing
7,020 enrollees; SEIU Local 300, Civil
Service Forum Employees Welfare Fund,
representing 2,000 enrollees; and SEIU
Health &Welfare Fund, representing
1,620 enrollees.
That's in addition to three other previous
SEIU waiver winners: Local 25 SEIU
in Chicago with 31,000 enrollees; Local
1199 SEIU Greater New York Benefit
Fund with 4,544 enrollees; and SEIU
Local 1 Cleveland Welfare Fund with 520
enrollees. This brings the total number of
Obamacare-promoting SEIU Obamacare
refugees to an estimated 45,000 workers
represented by seven SEIU locals.
Without the HHS-approved
exemptions, these health providers would
have been forced to drop low-cost coverage
for seasonal, part-time and low-wage
workers due to skyrocketing premiums.
The only way they are keeping their health
care is by successfully begging the feds to
spare them from Obamacare.
The Democrats' law seeks to eliminate
the low-cost plans (known as "mini-med"
plans) under the guise of controlling
insurer spending on executive salaries
and marketing. The ultimate goal, as I've
reported before: forcing a massive shift
from private to public insurance designed
by government-knows-best bureaucrats.
House and Senate Republicans plan
separate investigations of the Obamacare
waiver process. Who got one when and
why? Who knew whom? Who didn't?
HHS acknowledged Thursday that
some 50 sanctuary-seekers had their.
waiver applications denied, but would
not say more. Perhaps the White House
storytellers, so eager to profile the "Voices
of Health Reform," can enlighten us.

Don't Build


Your Life on the


Loose Gravel

A friend of mine asked me
the other day if I thought
it was a good idea for him
to buy his son a dirt bike.
Before he'd even finished i
asking, I was already setting
about to put a halt to that
nonsense. If he was thinking
I'd endorse such a plan in .
front of his wife, he was
sadly mistaken. Before he
could safely drag her off
beyond earshot I'd barraged But Anyway...
them with at least a half with Guy Sheffield
dozen tales of the near death
encounters I'd experienced as a kid on my little Honda
XR-75.
The one that finally caused her to gasp and give
him 'the look' was the story of the time I was scooting
along on a loose Mississippi gravel road with my little
brother Heath on back. The following re-telling still
brings shivers up my spine too:
Heath had been whining that morning about having to
wear his head protection. He complained he looked goofy
in my old football helmet- said the mouthpiece tasted
funny. (Maybe I'd called him hard-headed so long he was
starting to believe it.) Anyway, I had to end up agreeing
to wear my helmet too before he'd hush.
Within minutes we were cruising miles from home;
way too far out really, considering we'd been told to stay
in the yard. It's not like we had any place to be either. Of
course, we had that little engine wound out on the off
chance we might need to get there quick. (People had
always told us we were headed nowhere fast.)
Despite the squirrelly handling the motorcycle was
exhibiting on the fresh gravel, we couldn't bring ourselves
to slow down. We loved to feel the wind on our faces,
even if we were collecting more bugs in our teeth than a
voracious Venus fly-trap on vacation in the Everglades.
Everything was peachy, at least until we rolled up on
that sudden ninety degree turn! I screamed, and stomped
the brake. The bike screamed, and began to hydroplane.
Heath screamed, and squeezed my breakfast clear back
up to my tonsils.
I fought a power slide for the next forty or fifty feet,
and then made the executive decision to lay it over. Our
only alternative was to hit the oncoming ditch at full
speed.
We left the road sideways, and both tires slammed
into the far bank at the same time. The resulting jolt
catapulted us like we'd been shot out of a giant slingshot.

Florida's top freshwater


fishing destinations for 2011


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) freshwater fisheries
biologists from across the state recently
weighed in to suggest fishing sites that
novice to expert anglers might want to try
out in 2011 for a variety of species.
Florida is the "Fishing Capital of
the World" due to great resources and
responsible management. Those great
resources include a wide variety of fishing
opportunities throughout the state. Every
winter, biologists select some of the larger
water bodies they recommend anglers try
out.
To make their recommendations
biologists use information such as creel
count (data from actual anglers' on-
the-water success for the previous year);
electrofishing data (a sampling method that
uses electric currents to stun fish so they
can be netted, examined and released);
tournament data; Big Catch results
(the FWC's popular angler-recognition
program); state records; interviews with
local guides and bait-and-tackle shop
owners; and their own fishing experiences.
All of the sites selected are large enough
and have adequate public access facilities
to accommodate additional fishing
pressure and still provide great fishing
opportunities. We also try to take into


account recent or anticipated weather
or vegetation trends that might impact
angling success throughout the year.
The results are posted on MyFWC.
com/Fishing (see "Fishing Sites and
Forecasts") each January. In addition,
that site also provides quarterly fishing
forecasts for major water bodies in each
region of the state, along with fishing
tips and information about all of Florida's
recreational freshwater fishes.
Of course, one of these lists features
largemouth bass, the most popular sport
fish in North America, and one which has
been a jewel in Florida's crown since the
first angler cast a hook alongside a lily pad.
Long before that, it was a gem for native
fishermen casting a fish spear or a gorge
(the predecessor of fish hooks) typically
a bone with an off-center hole attached to
a line. When a fish swallowed it and the
fishermen pulled on the line, the gorge
stuck in the fish's throat.
Another piece of good news is that
Lake Okeechobee, the "Big Waters" in
the midst of the renowned River of Grass,
is back on the list. Following a series
of environmental calamities, including
prolonged high water and hurricanes,
the lake's resiliency and management
efforts have generated a bass resurgence.

Other featured black bass waters
include perennial favorites, such as the
Everglades Conservation Areas; lakes
George, Istokpoga, Kissimmee, Monroe,
Seminole, Talquin, Tarpon, Toho and
Walk-in-Water; Mosaic and Tenoroc fish
management areas; Orange Lake; Rodman
Reservoir; and the Suwannee River.
Who knows? You might land a trophy
fish by trying out these hotspots. A yellow
bullhead caught in the Crystal River on
Dec. 17 became the new state record for
that species. Tom Flynn of Homosassa
was fishing with minnows he caught at a
boat ramp when he hooked the catfish. The
new state record yellow bullhead weighed
5 pounds, .75 ounces and was 20 inches in
length.
Please check out MyFWC.com/Fishing,
under "Fishing Sites and Forecasts," to
learn more about these destinations and
how your fishing license dollars help
ensure the future of quality freshwater
fishing throughout Florida, so people


can keep catching various bass species;
crappie, bream or bluegill; shellcrackers
or stumpknockers; redbreast sunfish; and
catfish or bullheads.
We hope you will try your luck fishing
for a new species or testing some of these
outstanding fishing holes this year to
expand your enjoyment, and we encourage
you to take a kid fishing: It's likely a tossup
between bluegill and catfish for having
generated most of those awesome "first
fish" smiles for millions of young and not-
so-young anglers in Florida. Regardless,
for a kid, fishing is inexpensive, fun,
healthy and a great way to spend quality
time with someone you care about away
from the stresses of daily life.

Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days

Take Place Feb. 5 and 6


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service established Feb. 5
and 6 as Youth Waterfowl
Hunting Days.
These select days are a
great opportunity to get
young people outdoors and
to introduce them to the
excitement of waterfowl
hunting.


The statewide, two-day
season allows children
younger than 16 years old
- with adult supervision
- to hunt waterfowl, coots
and common moorhens.
Supervisors (18 years or
older) must be present and
may assist young hunters,
but state regulations
prohibit the supervisors
from hunting. Hunters
younger than 16 years of


age do not need licenses,
permits or federal duck
stamps.
All regulations and bag
limits for hunting waterfowl
apply to this two-day
season. Hunting regulations
are available online at
MyFWC.com/Hunting or
in the FWC's waterfowl
and coot seasons brochure,
available at county tax
collectors' offices.

Illustration by Alexander Key
Albert Lodge was a wiry little fellow, and looked
smaller still beside the enormous locomotive engine
111 on the Plant System line. Under the lamplight
illuminating the Tampa train yard, the feisty engineer
climbed to the cab. Unbeknownst to anyone including
himself- Lodge was about to do something no man had
done before.
It was early in the morning of March 1, 1901. Up in
Savannah, Georgia, a railroad fireman was stoking the
boilers of another locomotive on the Plant line. This was
a sister of the 111, the 107. Engineer Ned Leake checked
his gauges and kept an anxious eye on his pocket watch.
He had a 3:00 a.m. departure on a very important run
down to Jacksonville, Florida.
After the Civil War, Connecticut entrepreneur Henry
B. Plant had built a network of railroads through southern
Georgia, across northern Florida, and down the Gulf
Coast. Purchased in a foreclosure sale, the Savannah,
Florida & Western Railway had become a key link in
the Plant System. It now had a chance to substantially
increase its profitability by winning a lucrative U.S. Postal
contract. Over on the Seaboard Air Line tracks, a massive
locomotive was firing up for the same run.
At this turn of the century juncture, the Spanish-
American War had ended, but U.S. troops still occupied
Cuba. Post Office Department officials, intending faster
mail service, were prepared to award the contract to the
line that could make the fastest delivery. The race was on,
though the odds favored Seaboard which had the more
direct route. The Plant road detoured over 30 miles from


Savannah to Waycross, then on to Jacksonville where a
steamship waited for the mail to Havana.
Each line was assigned four mail cars each and both
trains left Union Station in Savannah at precisely 3:00
a.m. In the 12-mile straightaway, they ran neck and
neck, and then the Plant 107 began to take the lead.
She was running hard hard and fast so she was
running hot. Too hot. Just before the veer for Waycross
north of Flemming, the driving box on the 107 began its
meltdown. The big Seaboard engine roared past, its crew
flailing their arms out the windows, gesturing, hooting
and hollering, certain of victory those few miles out.
The 107 struggled into Flemming before seizing up; an
attempted repair to the engine failed. The crestfallen crew
huddled together in the little depot to think how possibly
to stay in the race. That's when the schedule board caught
the eye of Flemming's dispatcher and he jumped to his
feet. The 111 on its routine run out of Tampa was due any
minute. Better yet, Albert Lodge was at the throttle and
Lodge was known to be an engineer among engineers.
He was the best around, as Henry Plant used to say, at
highballingg" a train.
The stationers and 107 crew piled out onto the platform
to wave Lodge in. Before he could make a full stop
beneath the water tank, Ned Leake and the rest were
shouting up to him about their dire circumstances. Albert
Lodge and the 111 were the chance they had. The crusty
little engineer didn't so much as blink at the worsening
odds against them; he just took charge.
The freight cars were sidetracked in whirlwind time,
and the 111 was watered and turned. She backed and
coupled to the mail train. They'd cooked the engine in
the 107 and burned an hour in the race, but Albert Lodge
had his hand back on the throttle of the 111 and she was
southbound, building steam. Lodge shouted out to the
telegraph operator to send word on down the line: "Clear
the track! Set the switches and lock'em!"
Another veteran engineer, James "Uncle Jimmy"
Ambrose, stood in as copilot to Lodge. Charlie Johnson
would shovel the coal. Plant System executive S.S.

Anderson named WES

Volunteer of the Year

On the heels of
announcing their Teacher
of the Year and ESP of the
Year, members of the staff
at Williston Elementary l
School learned that Cathy
Anderson was named the
school's Volunteer of the
Year for 2011-2012 at the
January 26th early release
day luncheon, held in the "
media center and hosted by
the 5th grade team.
Cathy and husband Jim Cathy Anderson-VOY,
have two sons at home, Dylan photo by Donna Lovvorn
and Cody, and daughter
Amber. Son Brian lives in South Florida. Originally from
New York, Cathy's family moved to Gainesville when
she was 13. She attended Buchholz then pursued work in
the medical field after two years of college. Jim, who has
worked for Monterey Boats for 10 years, moved the family
to Williston eight years ago.
Fourth grade team facilitator Joelene Vining made the
announcement, introducing Anderson. "Cathy Anderson
was nominated as Volunteer of the Year because of her
dedication and endless contributions...over the last three
years. Cathy volunteers every morning before taking
[Dylan] to school, then she returns to volunteer for the
rest of the day...every day!" While Cathy is in Vining's
room, she "helps prepare projects, files papers, organizes
classroom materials, grades homework and class work,
hangs student work for display and checks out books for
the class."
Vining creates a "things to do" list, and Anderson
diligently works to complete each "thing" even if that
means she takes projects home. "She even picks up lunches
at McDonald's for students who have earned that treat,"
adds Vining. In addition, Anderson is always willing to
help any teacher who needs assistance. She often works on
projects for several of the 3rd and 4th grade teachers.

Yankeetown/Inglis Woman's Club Makes a


Difference FUTURE HOME


For the past 45 years, the YIWC worked to benefit and
serve our two communities with educational support for
student scholarships, and the AF Knotts Public Library
which is owned and maintained by the Woman's Club.
Over the years, the YIWC has provided nearly $80,000
in tuition scholarships to the students of the Yankeetown
School. As a result of those scholarships we are proud to
say there are some PHDs, a few Master's degrees and lots
of kids with decent jobs because of YIWC fundraising
activities and your enthusiastic support.
The source for scholarship funding is our regular
Thursday Night Bingo, which has been ongoing since
1969. If you're up for some really good eats, including
fresh burgers, homemade soups, pies and cakes, you
should come by the club house around 6 p.m. on
Thursday and eat supper for way under five bucks. If
you want to add some fun and camaraderie with your
neighbors, stay and play for the $100 Bingo Jackpot each
week. It all goes toward scholarships.
Bingo proceeds also fund the "Kind News" kid's
educational newsletter to eleven classrooms at the
Yankeetown School and an incentive program each
quarter for "Best Grades," "Most Improved" and a new
"Good Citizen Award." We present Wal-Mart Gift
Cards for each category in three different grade groups
and the children and their parents are also invited to our
Scholarship Awards Luncheon in May to be recognized
again for their good work at school. These are proud
moments for the children, their parents and for us.
Our basket, quilt and fine painting raffles, the Chili
Cook-Off, Soup-a-thon, Spaghetti Dinner and Pancake
Breakfast proceeds pay operating expenses for the club
house and library and provide some financial support
to the area Volunteer Fire Departments, Childs Play
Foundation, Isaiah Foundation and the Sheriffs Youth
Ranch.
Currently, the AF Knotts Public Library is the only
public library owned and financially supported by a
woman's club. The club is responsible for all building
maintenance, repairs and utilities. It began as a YIWC
library service in the early 70s and operated in various
buildings around Yankeetown. The Woman's Club bought
and provided books and the members of the club managed
the library for folks in town. The current library building
and grounds were deeded to the in YIWC in 1974 by Mr.

Steinhatchee Fiddler Crab
Festival Parade
The 3rd Annual Fiddler Crab Festival will be held Fri.
night, Feb. 18 through Sunday, Feb. 20 in Steinhatchee.
The much anticipated parade will start at 10 a.m. on
Sat, Feb 19. Lineup for the parade will be on Central Ave
(behind the school) between 9 and 13 Street at 9 a.m. The
5.parade will continue south on 13 Street.
Parade application and indemnification forms
can be picked up at local businesses or downloaded
from the chamber of commerce website; www.
steinhatcheeriverchamberofcommerce.com
If you have questions call Susan at (229) 938-0655.
Final date to enter is Feb. 18.

Anderson continuedfrom page 8
Not only does Anderson work in the classroom, but
she also volunteers three days a week in the school media
center, helping media specialist Donna Lovvorn. "Cathy
was more than willing to help...when she realized that
without her help, our library may be closed for students to
check out books several days a week because of scheduling
issues," said Vining. "Cathy happily learned how to check
out books so the media center could stay open while our
media specialist taught classes."
"If she didn't come in during this time, I'd have to
cut short my instructional time with my students," said
Lovvorn. "She's really an asset. Not only am I benefiting,
but our students are as well!"
Anderson often volunteers during any special events
for WES and at the PBS store on Fridays. (The school's
Positive Behavior System rewards positive behavior.)
She also attends the School Advisory Committee (SAC)
meetings, offering input as a parent and volunteer.
"Cathy has been a blessing to me and many others.
She is always eager to help, thorough with her work and
dependable! Cathy has become a part of my classroom,
and I know it wouldn't function as well without her,"
concluded Vining.
Principal Marla Hiers added her kudos. "It is always
a joy to honor people who go 'above and beyond' to
make a difference in other people's lives, and this week
was one of those special occasions as we celebrated
the many contributions of Cathy Anderson, our WES
Volunteer of the Year! For the past few years, Cathy has
dedicated four to five days a week to our campus, helping
in classrooms, managing groups of children, providing
an extra set of hands to prepare materials for the Fourth
Grade Team and the campus. Her family has blessed our
campus for years with contributions through Monterey
Boats, and her time on our campus has certainly been an
extended blessing to our children and teachers!! We hope
that her celebration will be a precious memory that lingers
for years to come!! CONGRATULATIONS!!"

Log Cabin Quilters

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Jan. 27, 2011
at the Levy County Quilt Museum. We are trying
to get rid of some clothes so we will be taking some
to Gainesville and other places. Pat, Lois, Alliene,
Toni, Laura, Kathie and I traveled to Tampa on
Tuesday to judge quilts and crafts entered in the State
Fair. It's always a fun day but on the way back home,
we had to stop in Crystal River as the weather was
so bad. We found out that it was even worse further
south. We did get home safely thanks to our driver,
Kathie, and our Lord. We also want to thank Priscilla
and Marylyn who kept the Museum open for us.
Our Fair bus is almost full so if you want to go on
the 15th to the Fair call us at (352) 493-2801. The
cost is $23 each. We will be leaving Chiefland at 7
a.m. and Williston at 7:30 a.m.
Thursday lunch was corn chowder, chicken salad,
spaghetti, noodles, chili, eggs, donuts, chocolate pie,
brownies, cherry pie and so much more.

as the public library it is
today. The Levy County
Library System manages
internal library functions
including staffing and book W a

Friends of the Library and. -

With the addition of the

The AF Knotts Public
Library is a very busy place .
considering the size of our W
towns. On average, 600
residents per month access the library and about 180
utilize the internet accessible computers. Someone recently
described our little library as the "hub of Yankeetown"
and another as "a wonderful community benefit to be
proud of." It's obvious by the numbers that the library is a
great community resource we are very proud to own and
support.
In 1966 the YIWC Thrift Shop was opened in a
building across from the Izaak Walton Lodge in order
to start a "building fund" for the Club House we have
today on 56th Street. The Thrift Shop is stocked with
books, household items, great clothing and more solely
by donations from club members and you, members of
the community. The all-volunteer committee boast about
the fact that we have the lowest prices anywhere around.
Thrift Shop volunteers also help folks by putting together
spiffy outfits for job interviews. The ladies like to give
a boost to help folks get back to work to support their
families. The Thrift Shop crew and other club members
also deliver socks and other necessities to the Yankeetown
School for kids who need some additional help. The
YIWC is currently working on another "building fund"
to expand the Thrift Shop to larger quarters. We need the
extra space for all the good things we have for sale. The
Thrift Shop is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10

IMPORTANT
INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER
Otter Creek WTP Has
Levels of Disinfection By-
Products Above Drinking
Water Standards
What happened?
Our water system recently
violated a drinking water
standard. Although this is not
an emergency, as our cus-
tomers, you have a right to


know what happened, what
you should do, and what we
are doing to correct this situ-
ation.
We routinely monitor for
the presence of drinking
water contaminants. Test-
'U








.EGALS

12 Feb 3, 2011 The County Paper, Est. 1923 levyjournalonline.com The Levy County Journal


ing results we received from
samples taken November 9,
2010 show that our system
exceeds the standards, or
maximum contaminant lev-
els (MCL), for Disinfection
By-Products (DBPs),which
includes Total Trihalometh-
anes (TTHMs) and Haloace-
tic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The
standard for TTHMs is 80 mi-
crograms per liter (p/L) and
the average level of TTHMs
over the last year was 252.4
p/L. The standard for HAA5s
is 60 p/L, the average level
of HAA5s over the last year
was 72.6 ip/L.
What should I do?
Some people who drink wa-
ter containing TTHMs in ex-
cess of the MCL over many
years may experience prob-
lems with their liver, kidneys,
or central nervous system,
and may have an increased
risk of getting cancer.
Some people who drink
water containing HAA5s
in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an
increased risk of getting can-
cer.
Any customers who are
concerned about their expo-
sure to DBPs may choose
alternative sources of water
for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate
risk. If it had been, you would
have been notified immedi-
ately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing
to lower our DBPs levels:
We are flushing the water
system. We are reducing
the chlorine residual to help
reduce DBPs. We are in-
creasing sampling for DBPs.
We will inform you when ad-
ditional samples show levels
of DBPs below the MCLs.
The Town Council is also
considering modifying the
system to address this prob-
lem. They are considering
the addition of automatic
flush valves, and possibly
the installation of carbon fil-
ters. They are also exploring
the possibility of acquiring a
new wellhead site.
We anticipate resolving
the problem within this time
frame: Within the next few
months we hope to have
TTHMs and HAA5s within
the allowable range. We
hope to have a long term
plan within the next six
months.
For more information,
please contact the town
clerk, Rose Severino, at
Town Hall (352-486-4766).
Please share this
information with all the
other people who drink this


water, especially those who
may not have received this
notice directly (for example,
people in apartments,
nursing homes, schools, and
businesses). You can do this
by posting this notice in a
public place or distributing
copies by hand or mail.

Last Week's Word SearchI


Guy Sheffield continuedfrom page 5
I'm not sure how far we actually flew, but I reckon it
probably rivaled some of the previous man-flight records
of the day.
We came down with a heavy plop in a muddy soybean
field, side by side, face down. When I came to I was
spitting mud and spitting mad. I looked at Heath and my
first thought was, "Why is that dummy wearing his chin
strap across his forehead?" Heath also had this big blank
stare on his face like he was in shock. I followed his gaze
and found we were both staring right into the business
end of a rusty old plow. Its razor sharp disks mere inches
from our foreheads. Helmets or not, another foot and our
hard heads would've been sliced thinner than a honey
baked ham!
But anyway- I believe if some of you'd take the time,
you might see yourself in this story. Maybe you've rejected
the firm foundation of God's Word and built your life on
loose gravel? Now you find yourself far from home and
headed nowhere fast. Your life is hydroplaning out of
control. Stop being so hard-headed! Get off that squirrelly
path before you run into the sudden 90 degree turn of
judgment and reap what you've been sowing. Turn to the
Lord. He is merciful and will show you a better way. (I
waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned
to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of
despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on
solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Psalms
40:1-2 NLT)
Take some advice from a guy who's seen the blades of
the reaper up close. Put on the helmet of God's salvation
offered through His son Jesus Christ. Now... before it's
too late.

McClellan had squeezed in with his
gold pocket watch for the revived race.
Lodge pushed his railroader's cap back on
his head and began to nudge the throttle
of the 111 with the touch and finesse of a
world-class jockey. He soon had those big
wheels driving ever harder in a whirling
great roar, building speeds of 60, 70, 80
miles per hour.
By the time the 111 flashed through
Jessup, she was approaching 100 mph.
Onlookers scattered from the tracks,
so horrifying was the screaming of her
wheels. The cab began to vibrate at that
velocity. Uncle Jimmy cut his eyes at
McClellan and remarked dryly, "This
train's going awfully fast."
A wide-eyed McClellan fumbled for his
timing watch just before the 69 mile post.
Uncle Jimmy pulled his, too. They timed
from the 69 to the 74 mile post at Satilla.
Each looked up at the other in disbelief
because each had exactly the same time.
Albert Lodge and the 111 had just been
clocked at 120 miles per hour! These were
railroad men; they knew the record. The
1893 speed of 112.5 miles per hour made
by the New York Central No. 999 had
already been commemorated on a postage
stamp. Plant's 111 had just busted that
record wide open. Station and line crew all
down the line verified it. No train had ever
traveled faster than the 111.
And then there was the big curve
that banked out beyond Satilla. Charlie
Johnson was feeding the coal to the burn
box as if it were a fire-eating dragon.
McClellan struggled to loosen his tie.
He was sweating more than Johnson the
fireman. A younger fellow passing coal to
Johnson asked if he didn't think Lodge
would slow for the curve. "Naw," Johnson
said, "he's just goin' good now."
As the 111 whirled into the curve, Lodge
brought the throttle in three notches. At
the screaming of the wheel flange on the
rails, McClellan muttered, "Well, we'll
take that curve or take the woods." That's


Old Florida Celebration of the Arts -

Artist Spotlight Susan Dauphinee


Two decades ago, while exploring the
nooks and crannies of Cedar Key's Dock
Street, I ventured through a ramshackle
collection of shops perched on stilts.
over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico,
and passed by a studio with windows
open wide to both passing breezes and
tourists. Inside, a petite blonde woman
was standing, paintbrush in hand, before
a large canvas mounted on a heavy wooden
easel. The work in progress was vintage
Susan Dauphinee a moody landscape
of mangroves, oaks and palms, lit by the
glancing gold of sunset and reflected on the
still, dark waters of a tidal marsh. I stood
there, mesmerized. I wanted to pull up a chair
and simply sit there for the rest of the day.
Fast-forward to the winter of 2010.
Susan has just won the poster-art
competition for the 2011 Old Florida
Festival of the Arts, to be held April 2-3 in
the small town of Cedar Key on Florida's
Nature Coast. I am again visiting Susan
Dauphinee's studio. She now works from
her home, a stilt house looking west over
tidal flats and sheltered shorelines of Cedar
Key. Finished, or almost-finished paintings
are everywhere, propped on the floor,
hanging on walls, sitting on an easel or
table. It seems that "finished" is a relative
concept. The paintings remain works-in-
progress, with another translucent hue layered here,
a soft reflection added there, until some indefinable
signal says "stop". In any case, I want to buy them
all. I'm supposed to be conducting an interview, but
most of my brain is trapped on a canvas surface by
the pink and lavender light of vanishing daylight
reflected in the smooth ripples of the Suwannee
River.
Susan Dauphinee may have been born and raised
in land-locked Gainesville, but the rivers and coastal
marshes of Florida are clearly part of her soul.
While the location of her studio may have changed,
her inspiration has surely not.
Susan cannot remember a time when she has not
been drawing or painting. Artistic expression was
her refuge as a shy child and teenager. At the end of
high school, she traveled to Sarasota with a friend
checking out the Ringling School of Art, and that
visit inspired her to enroll for a fine arts degree. As
a student there, her first painting was a still life of
mullet on a sheet of newspaper, perhaps a harbinger
of her future in Cedar Key. The most challenging
aspect of Ringling and later, of making a name as
an artist, was finding a way to be taken seriously
when she looked more like a cute blonde high school
cheerleader than an edgy, angst-ridden art student.
Although an art career provided the flexibility
demanded of the military spouse she was to become,
it was difficult, forty years ago, for women to gain


FAST TRAIN
rida's Great Train Race
continuedfrom page 8

when Albert Lodge suddenly kicked the
throttle out five notches faster. They hit
the curve, McClellan hit Uncle Jimmy and
Uncle Jimmy latched onto the hot iron
pipes on the boiler head. It didn't matter.
As Uncle Jimmy would later relate, those
pipes felt "rather cool" just then. Lodge
stood stoically, as if made of solid brass.
The rest steadied themselves and looked
back to see the fellow in the coal car laying
flat, face down, holding on for dear life.
Johnson's laughter was louder than the wail
of the train.
The 111 hit the St. Mary's trestle into
Florida like a lightning bolt. By the time
they flashed through Callahan 20 miles out
from Jacksonville, she was being clocked
at 120 again. Nothing more than a cinder
would be left on the track behind them.
They might not win, but Lodge and the
111 were going to give everything they
had. And that is exactly what they did until
the tenacious engineer began to slow as
they entered the Jacksonville terminal.
To their astonishment, the 111 was being
greeted in apparent celebration by raucous
cheers from well-wishers and railroad
officials rushing forward. It took some
moments for the 111 crew to comprehend
such jubilation and accept it as authentic.
As they soon learned in an amazing twist
of fate, the Seaboard train had not yet
arrived! It seemed there'd been something
of a "tortoise and the hare" turn of events.
The overconfident Seaboard engine had
slowed its pace, thinking the Plant Line
was entirely out of the race.
Some time later, as it's told, the Seaboard
train pulled in smugly on the other side
of the yard. By then, the victorious Plant
crew was in the station restaurant eating
breakfast. Shortly thereafter, in walked
the Seaboard conductor a bull of a man
who unsuspectingly asked loudly: "That
broken down Plant engine heard from yet?"
Riotous laughter erupted from the crowded
tables! The confused Seaboard conductor
looked about for the reason why.

respect in any traditionally male profession. While
a male colleague might be treated as a serious artist,
Susan found that her art was at first considered as "a
good hobby for the little woman". It wasn't until the
early 1980s, when she began taking her work to art
shows and festivals, that she began to achieve critical
and commercial success with her paintings, and with
that came a new found confidence. Along the way
she picked up awards, commissions and galleries
to represent her. Her works now hang in dozens of
corporate collections throughout Florida, and many
private collections. They have been widely exhibited.
She now does few annual shows, but she never
misses the one in Cedar Key; it is her favorite. For
the public, the Old Florida Festival of the Arts is
a chance to meet Susan and see her current works,
while exploring the natural beauty of the Nature
Coast that's inspires Dauphinee and visiting the
"old" Florida that still resides in Cedar Key.
For more information about this annual fine
arts show, please contact event coordinator
