On February 14, Levy County deputies and investigators assisted
the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office in the handling of a residential
burglary that had just occurred in Gilchrist County. A family member
of the victim came home and found Gregory Bennett II, 22, and
Heather Bartholomew, 20, inside the home. The suspects in the
burglary were able to evade capture by running out the back sliding
glass door and fleeing in a black SUV. A witness followed the suspects
to Levy County and called law enforcement. The suspects' vehicle
was located behind the Fanning Springs City Hall. When they saw
deputies they fled on foot.
Deputy Clint Anderson and his K-9 partner, Robiek, responded
to the scene and tracked the suspects. During the tracking, Robiek
located the suspects' shoes and a stolen .22 caliber rifle in the woods.
Deputies cordoned off the area and Investigator Roger Bell located
the suspects running on foot towards the Suwannee River. When
Bell gave them an order to stop, the suspects jumped into the river to
escape arrest but realized that the water was too cold and surrendered

without incident. Investigator Bell arrested the two for resisting arrest
without violence and the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office will file
appropriate charges for crimes they committed in Gilchrist County.

"Drivers, start your engines" will soon be heard again in Bronson.
The Bronson Speedway, formerly known as Bronson Motor Speedway,
in Bronson, Fla. has been purchased by Young Unlimited Inc, and is
scheduled to reopen in March, 2011 after sitting silent for over a year.
The 3/8ths-mile high banked oval is looking to host various divisions of
racing during the 2011 season, including a focus on INEX-sanctioned
Legends Cars and possible Bandoleros.
Chris and Ann Young, owners of Young Unlimited Inc., purchased
the track from former racer Mike Cope at the beginning of February,
and received the keys to the facility on Wednesday, February 9th, 2011.
"While we need to clean up the facility and make sure everything is
up to speed, Mike Cope did a great job with the improvements to this
track when he owned it," said Ann Young. "From the catch fence to the
bathrooms, everything says class. When we get everything cleaned up
and ready, this is going to be a top-notch facility everyone will enjoy
coming to."
The Young family is not strangers to racing themselves. The New York
natives are well known at Riverhead Raceway as Chris Young Sr. races
NASCAR Modified full season, while their son Chris Jr. races Legend
Cars in the Semi- Pro division. That experience of being a racer will
lend itself to providing a great atmosphere for fans and drivers alike.


continued on page 13


"We want everyone to come to a place to race with class," said Ann
Young. "We want to bring back the old days of racing where everyone
came to the track to have fun."
Ann Young told LegendsNation.com that they are looking to
incorporate various local divisions they have had at the track in the past
as well as Late Model division and INEX-sanctioned Legend Cars.
Bandoleros are also a possibility once they determine how well they
will be able to race at the track. Also the track might entertain touring
Modified or Late Models, in the future.
While a firm opening date hasn't been set, Ann Young said they are
looking towards the middle to late March to have cars on the track in
Bronson.
The Young family is scheduling an Open House "Meet and Greet"
at the track on Saturday, February 19th, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for those
that are in the area and want to check out the facilities. The track address
is 9950 NE State Rd 24, Bronson FL, 32621. A new website will be
in the works shortly, but interested parties can contact Ann Young at
bmsowner@aol.com or call Barry Palifka at 540-239-2807.
Be part of the action as a New Chapter begins in the history of........
Bronson Speedway.

Three Arrested for Sale of Prescription

Drugs in Dixie County


Raymond Hill


Michael Hill


Typical drug sale investigations often involve the use
of informants, confidential informants or cooperating
witnesses. One such investigation has begun to culminate
in several arrests and additional arrests to follow. The
investigation began in October of 2010 and involved the
sale of prescription drugs. The Dixie County Sheriff's
Office has made three arrests so far with additional arrests
expected in the coming days.
Raymond Hill, 31, Michael G. Hill, 26, and Amber
Arnesen, 21, all of Old Town, were arrested on Jan. 24,
2011. Raymond Hill was arrested for two counts of the

Keep Your Mouth Shut in

Williston


Be careful what you say at a Williston
Town Council meeting until after
March 1, 2011. The privilege of "public
participation" at the meetings on anything
other than specific items was removed
by Council President Marc Nussel at the
Tuesday meeting on Feb. 8.
According to Nussel "Council members
are there to conduct city business" and
"We have two candidates who are abusing
their privileges." Nussel says that the
public can still comment on specific items
on the Council agenda if you follow the
rules, but making "comments" about
anything else is not allowed.
Nussel was referring to recently-
resigned city attorney Norm Fugate and
former Williston council member Jerry
Robinson making alleged stump speeches
during meetings. Those allegations were
denied by both Fugate and Robinson.
Fugate gave his resignation as city
attorney at the Jan. 4 Tuesday night
meeting after months of bickering
resulting in Sunshine Law violation
charges by Fugate towards the council. In
the interim Jennifer Ellison of Cross City


is acting as city attorney. At the Feb. 8th
meeting Ellison was not there but sent her
associate Michael Osteen.
Fugate is challenging incumbent
Steve Holcomb and Robinson is running
against council member Debra Jones.
Nussel is up for re-election and is
unopposed.
According to the First District Court
of Appeals the Sunshine Law gives the
public the right to be present, not to
speak, at public meetings. Since the
Florida Supreme Court declined to
hear the subsequent appeal, the decision
stands. And Nussel can make his ruling
to discontinue public comments on
items not specific to the agenda at that
particular meeting. Now the people must
submit a written request that includes
the specific issue to comment on by the
Wednesday a week prior to the meeting to
the city clerk.
And then Nussel as council president
decides whether or not to grant that
request.

Who's Policing Amtrak Joe

Biden's Rail Boondoggles?


removal.
And two
weeks ago,
Issa revealed
that the new
Amtrak IG,
Ted Alves,
is risking his
own neck
by probing
into whether
Amtrak
bureaucrats on a fishing expedition
misused the e-mail system by searching
for communiques between his office
and Congress regarding the Weiderhold
scandal.
Grassley is right: "Independence is
the most important element for making
the inspector general system work. If
independence is compromised, either by
an inspector general or by agency leaders,
then taxpayers are left without a watchdog
and a major opportunity for accountability
in government is lost. When the system
gets compromised, there need to be
consequences in order to try to prevent it
from happening again."
Amtrak's notorious book-cooking,
however, has gone unabated. The agency
was reprimanded during the Bush
administration for misleading Congress
about its solvency. But former employees
faced no criminal charges for fudging the
agency's profit-and-loss statements.
Compounding matters now, cronyism
runs rampant in the federal rail
bureaucracy. Biden's lobbyist son, Hunter,
sits on the Amtrak board of directors.
Amtrak Vice President Eleanor Acheson is
a close pal of-- you guessed it -- Joe Biden.
She oversees the very Law Department
accused of interfering repeatedly with
the taxpayer advocates in the inspector
general's office. Acheson hired Biden's
former Senate staffer Jonathan Meyer as
her deputy general counsel. Meyer called it
a "happy coincidence."
In another such fortuitous coincidence,
one of the top beneficiaries of the
new White House rail bailout is GE
Transportation -- the leading manufacturer
of diesel-electric locomotives. President
Obama recently named GE CEO Jeffrey
Immelt to head the new White House jobs
council.
With Team Obama's social engineers
and legal fixers steering the federal gravy
train, the light at the end of the spending
tunnel seems grimly dim.

At Philadelphia's 30th Street Station on
Tuesday, lifelong government rail promoter
Vice President Joe Biden unveiled a $53
billion high-speed train initiative and
half-joked: "I'm like the ombudsman for
Amtrak." As with most gaffetastic Biden-
isms, the remark should prompt more
heartburn than hilarity. Just who exactly is
looking out for taxpayers when it comes to
federal rail spending?
Vigorous independent oversight of
public infrastructure binges is especially
critical given the nation's long history of
mass transit slush funds, cost overruns and
union-monopolized construction projects
to nowhere. Among the new projects
championed by the Obama administration:
a $10 billion New Jersey-to-New York
commuter rail tunnel pushed by Senate
Democrats that state officials won't pay
for but believe everyone else in the nation
should be forced to subsidize. When Biden
talks about "seizing the future," he's talking
about seizing your wallets for his party's
electoral security.
Alas, the White House hostility toward
vigilant taxpayer watchdogs rivals Michael
Vick's. And the Obama administration's
political abuse of the Amtrak inspector
general's office, still under congressional
investigation, is a recipe for yet more
porkulus-style waste.
In June 2009, longtime veteran Amtrak
inspector general Fred Weiderhold
was abruptly "retired" --just as the
government-subsidized rail service faced
mounting complaints about its meddling
in financial audits and probes. He had
blown the whistle on overzealous intrusion
by the agency's Law Department into
his investigations of $1.3 billion in
rail stimulus money and exposed how
Amtrak's legal counsel had usurped
the watchdog's $5 million portion of
federal stimulus dollars to hamstring his
probes. Even more threatening to the
Democratic attorneys' cabal, Weiderhold
discovered that the federal rail bureaucracy
was retaining outside law firms beyond
the independent watchdog's reach and
obstructing subpoenas issued to an outside
financial adviser.
In September 2010, GOP Sen. Chuck

rightly classified as a younger brother now
than a little one, I had a few reservations
about trying bullying him again. I just
couldn't figure out what to do. Then the
thought hit me, you're a Christian now,
"You could always pray!" So I did. I laid
the whole twisted tale out there on the
table before God.
Big mistake! Or at least I thought so at
the time. The Lord seemed to side with
dumb ole' Heath! He wrenched me out like
a wet beach towel and hung me out under
such conviction that I began to have a
series of very strange thoughts, like I might
need to make it up to Heath or something.
Then an idea hit me. Begrudgingly, I knew
what I must do. I gathered my courage and
took my plans to the boss.
My wife listened intently, and even
seemed genuinely sympathetic when I
told her how bad I felt for whomping
that little wimp all those years. In fact,
she was close to tears by the end of my
speech, so I finished strong, "It would just
mean the world to me if I could just get
him that new Browning rifle he's been
hankering for." Maybe she'd heard some
of Heath's sob stories before, because
she simply sniffled and uttered the words
every husband longs to hear. "I'll get the
checkbook."
The next day we got that knucklehead a
brand new Browning. I was sorely tempted
to skip town and keep it for myself. Then
the thought hit me, "The Lord is already
in it, I better just stick with the plan." So
I did.
I wrapped the gun up in some old
Christmas paper and dropped it off by
Heath's house that night while he was
out. I left him a note explaining how I
just wanted to be a good brother for once.
I guess I even meant it, because it kind of
felt good.
Heath called me later. I'd never heard
him more excited. He chattered on and on


about that rifle. Then he sprung it on me.
He and his wife had been talking. Since
he'd already saved up the money to buy a
rifle for himself, they wanted to use it to
buy me one just like it.
Of course, I put up a good fight and all,
but then the thought hit me, "Who was
I to rob poor ole' Heath of all the joy this
'giving' stuff was bringing?"
It turns out shooting straight with God
was a good idea after all. Once I enlisted
God's help He hit me with one good idea
after another! Maybe that's what King
David meant when he said, (Trust in Him
at all times, you people; Pour out your
heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.
Selah. Psalms 62:8 KJV).
You don't have to read very much of
the Psalms to realize King David wasn't
afraid to share things with God; good,
bad, or ugly. He just laid his feelings right
out there. God didn't strike him down or
anything. In fact, I think the Lord actually
honored him for it.
It may be a crazy thought, but what if
God already knows about all our secret
rubbish? What if He's glad when we finally
get real enough with ourselves that we can
get real with Him? It worked for King
David. He just stayed right there on the
potter's wheel, and God was able to shape
quite a man out of him.
But anyway- Sometimes you can almost
see my wife's wheels spinning when I pull
out my new rifle. Yet she can't deny the
whole situation has helped to bring Heath
and me closer. In fact, Heath's turned out
to be just about the best brother ever. Odd
really, for someone who once accused me
of giving him 'dain bramage'.

from The Royala Coleman Family


On behalf of our family, we-would liketo take this opportunity to thank
everyone for the prayers, thoughts, and condolences concerning our mother, Royala
Coleman. She prided herself on being from Levy County and having nurtured
lifelong friendships in the area. During her final days, your cards and well wishes
brought her many smiles and much inspiration. It is
very touching to know how much she was loved in our
community. The outpouring of concern shown to our
family is not only comforting, but also very humbling.
Meager words can never express how thankful we are
to each and every one. We will always miss her, but the
love she gave us and that each of you have shown us
will help to heal our broken hearts.
God Bless You All.

country, a licensed obedience instructor and a judge. She remained
in the Panama Canal Area until the political situation became
difficult, retired in 1989, and North America became her new
location.
Kathleen was a captive of her Dancing Greyhounds. The
Dancing Greyhound history stretched across many states and
several countries. In 1978 it began as the all-breed Panama Canal
Kennel Chapter Drill Team in Central America. In 1996 it was
reborn as The Dancing Greyhound Drill Team covering North


America. In 2003 it became The Dancing Greyhound Comedy
Show. In 2007 it became The Singing and Dancing Greyhound
Musical Comedy Review, complete with music to dance by. In 2011,
it ceased.
Whatever it was, it was the only one in the world. The Girls did
some obedience moves, free-style dancing, retrieving, leaping and
jumps. Also included but never predictable were the improvisations
they chose on the spur of the moment. From the beginning, The
Dancing Greyhounds were a full-time, owner-funded, unsponsored,
not-for-profit, volunteer effort. It supported Greyhound adoption
and all-breed education with a wide variety of other public services
included. The Team accepted invitations September through May.
The winter months were spent servicing the Southeast; the summer
months, they worked camped in the cool mountains of Colorado.
For nine years Kathleen wrote a monthly dog column for a
major motorhome travel club. She developed programs to promote
responsible dog ownership for schools and other civic groups
in addition to the shows with Greyhounds being her dedicated
breed since 1992. Her Team did therapy dog activities and dog
safety programs for libraries and elementary schools. The Dancing
Greyhounds passed the half-million mile mark. They performed
in 32 states, three Canadian provinces and at 17 tracks. There were
16 Grey members over the years. The Team started with three but
usually had six performers.
Kathleen was preceded in death by her parents John and Eugenia
Litton and her brother.
Her survivors include her husband of 37 years Waldo Gilley,
and her sister Peggy Vandussedorp. Arrangements are under the
direction of Knauff Funeral Home Williston.

share with the group, and we'll look at them after the program ...

Paynes Prairie State Park on March 19. The itinerary for the field
trip will be available at the February meeting, and will include
activities all day. . from sunrise to sunset (weather permitting, of

month, except for August when we have no meeting, and December
when we meet on the second Thursday to avoid the holiday rush!

The West Comes East

Florida and the Geronimo Campaign


Illustration by Alexander Key


Southern Arizona, I happened
on a dusty historical marker that
informed of a fascinating link
to Florida. The brief commemoration
reported the final surrender of the Apache
war leader Geronimo. It revealed that it
was from a railway platform a few miles
north that Geronimo and the last of his
band were transported by train to be
imprisoned in Florida. The conflicting
image of renegade Apaches from those
desert mesas standing astonished before
Florida's "big water" amazed me. I had to
know more.
Here's what I found. By 1888, the year
ofGeronimo's final surrender, luxurious
new developments in the tourist trade
were taking place in Florida. The already
historic city of St. Augustine with its
rustic Spanish ruins, massive castle-like
fortress and long, sandy beaches was being
billed as the "American Riviera." Henry
Flagler, cofounder of Standard Oil, had
already become interested in the ancient
city and was developing a winter resort.
The Spanish Renaissance Revival style of
his Ponce Deleon Hotel was decorated in


Tiffany stained glass. Walls were bejeweled
with intricate mosaics and terra cotta relief.
Ceilings boasted grand murals of stunning
artistry; this was a far cry from the bent
wood and brush homes, known to the
Apache as wickiups. Yet this is the world
to which many of the Apache were bound,
if only to see it in a startling glance when
the Wild West came rolling into this grand
station of the Gilded Age.
So it happened that while vacationers
reveled in the new-found opulence of the
era, the newspapers they read revealed
front page news about the so-called
"Geronimo Campaign," just as newspapers
today headline the search for Bin Laden.
By the late 1880s, even international
newspapers chronicled the US Cavalry's
determined, though often frustrated,
attempts to capture the renowned Apache
war leader.
Be that as it may, life on the run had
taken its toll on this Apache band. By
the last, Geronimo was down to a mere
thirty-four men, women and children. Yet
so obsessed had the Army become in its
pursuit, the US had 5,000 troops engaged
in the hunt. That was about one-quarter of


the entire US Army, and they had hardly
gotten a glimpse of the "renegades," much
less made a capture.
Among Geronimo's final number was
the female warrior, Lozen. Though little
is actually known about her, according
to Apache lore Lozen was something
of an Apache Joan of Arc. It is said she
had an acute ability to sense the location
and number of the enemy as they neared.
She was an excellent shot, gifted with
horses, and actually led men in battle in
this, the last guerrilla resistance by Native
Americans on US soil.
According to some accounts, the
inevitability of defeat or even total
annihilation of his people weighed heavily
on Geronimo. His desperate band was
ragged, ill-equipped and exhausted. The
war leader agreed to parley with General
Gatewood to discuss the terms of a
possible surrender. Gatewood informed
Geronimo that most of the Apache,
including other tribes, had been captured
and transported by train to the state of
Florida. Among that number were said to
be members of their own families. This was
disturbing and discouraging news.
Geronimo later agreed to terms that
would transport his renegade band with
other "reservation Apaches" to Florida. In
a disingenuous twist of fate, the Apache
Scouts, who had faithfully led the search
for Geronimo, were also disarmed and put
on the train with boarded windows, bound
for Florida while a small, rumpled army
band struck up a rendition of"Auld Lang
Syne."
The first Florida stop was Pensacola,
where Geronimo and most of the braves
were disembarked. They would be held at
Ft. Pickens on the coast where, contrary to
the terms of surrender, they were separated
from their family members. The rest -
mostly the scouts, women and children
(including Lozen) were sent on to Ft.
Marion, Castillo de San Marcos, on the
bay at St. Augustine. It was there that they
were imprisoned, just across the street
from Florida's first luxury hotels where
the affluent guests had been reading for
months about the "blood thirsty" escapades


of their new neighbors.
The "wild Indians" were herded into
Fort Marion over the vast moat. There, in
the open square, they saw about them a
structure larger than any man-made thing
they'd ever seen. Above the casements lay
a stone floor forming a terreplein about
40-feet wide to the ramparts. This is where
the cannons are mounted and aimed out
over the bay. It is here that approximately
400 Apache prisoners were to be camped
in army tents so crowded that only narrow
spaces were left to walk about.
Most of the tents were cramped within
as well, though personal belongs were few.
There were some ceremonial instruments,
small drums, deer hoof rattles, flutes and
in this or that tent a buckskin bag of pollen
or other sacred substances bundled away.
Some of the women had brought cooking
utensils and household items. These
included utilitarian objects such as coiled
basketry, large twined burden baskets and
pitch-covered water containers. Also used
were fire drills, clay pots, and cups and
dishes made of gourd. There were some
stone or bone pounders, awls and grinding
tools and combs made of dried mescal
leaves. Not much else. The women made
small fires in the corners of the ramparts.
Allotted food was prepared in or near the
tents. Among their rations was freshly
slaughtered beef herded to the fort by
cowmen who were contractors with the
army.
Not surprisingly, the Apaches were to
be among Florida's first tourist attractions.
Curiosity fed a brisk tourist trade around
the captured hostiless." Tours of the fort
were given. Purchases were made of native
artifacts and crafts. Business was brisk and
bordered on the ridiculous, as wide-eyed
sightseers edged about the ramparts to see
the "savages" of the Painted Desert.
The Apaches, however, found some
amusement of their own. A luxury hotel
had been permitted to make a golf course
of the bunkered grounds outside the fort.
So those who mere weeks earlier had raced
the wind on horseback through the purple
sage, now watched from the ramparts of

Thanks to Jeremy Pittman's Eagle Scout
Project, twenty five new cypress homes
have been made available to the residents
of Watermelon Pond. Hopefully it will
help a family of blue birds to realize the
American dream of a home of their own"
said Norberto Fernandez, Fisheries and
Biological Scientist III at Watermelon
Pond WEA in Fanning Springs.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission needed
bluebird boxes constructed and Jeremy
Pittman of Troop 514 First United
Methodist Church of Chiefland stepped
up to do the job.
Life Scout Pittman decided to use
his leadership abilities to coordinate
the project and constructed twenty-
five nesting boxes out of rough sawn
cypress and made them predator proof by.
mounting them on galvanized poles. They
worked after school and on Saturdays to
log 150 hours of community service.
This helps the FWC's goal to develop
a productive environmental area by
establishing a bird population. The local
wildlife benefits, and it enhances the


experience of visitors by giving them the
ability to see the wildlife activity near their
new nesting sites. The bluebird boxes are
mounted along the property fence line for-
about one and a half miles.
This project was a great success and
everyone involved should be very proud
including Norberto Fernandez who
provided the supplies and materials,
and Jade Roof who helped with advice
and on-site installation. Both men are
Wildlife Biologists with FWC. Army
Private Steven Calloway, who is a former
Eagle Scout from Troop 514, found time
to help while on leave from his duties in
Afghanistan, and leader Junior Assistant
Scoutmaster Jeremy Pittman, Austin
Ross, Levi Sprague, Dawson I. Hathcox,
Committee Member Joan Hathcox and
Scoutmaster Bob Ross all helped as well.

It's official. Pamela Henry of Stuart
broke state and world records when she
reeled in a 9.6-pound blue tilapia last
August. The fish measured 24 inches
long. A taxidermist is mounting the
record-breaking fish.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
recently certified the fish as the largest
caught recreationally in state waters.
Additionally, the International Game
Fish Association issued the all-tackle
world record for the species to Henry.
Henry was fishing off her dock last
August in the south fork of the St.
Lucie River in Martin County when
she caught the big fish. She was using a
bread ball and was fishing at night.
"I've been fishing my whole life, so
it was always my mission to catch a
record blue tilapia," said Henry. "I had
researched the minimum weight, so I
knew what I was looking for."
Blue tilapia are abundant throughout
central and southern Florida. They


feed primarily on plankton and small
organisms living in or on the bottom.
As a result, blue tilapia are not known
for their angling quality. However, some
urban anglers catch them in ponds, using
bread balls, small pieces of hot dogs,
dog food or live worms. They are rarely
caught on artificial lures.
Blue tilapia generally have white,
flaky meat with a mild flavor and are
considered excellent eating. Farm-raised
tilapia are often sold in grocery stores.
The FWC encourages catching and
eating most exotic fish, including blue
tilapia. Because they are non-native,
there is no size or bag limit.
"Our goal is to ensure quality fishing
throughout Florida both now and in the
future," said Tom Champeau, director
of the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management. "Ms. Henry's
support and participation in the FWC's
Big Catch Angler recognition program
will help us maintain Florida's reputation
as the Fishing Capital of the World."

Another contrast is a yet more revealing
report of a healing ceremony performed by
the Apaches that went well into the night.
A fire had been built on the coquina floor
of the terreplein, its flames rising with the
drumming and sacred chants. According
to an eyewitness who watched from the
darkened golf links below, the sparks of
their sacred fire could be seen rising on
the night air. High above the bastions and
sentry towers, the sound of their mournful
voices, their drums and flutes reverberated

from within those massive walls.
According to the reporter, simultaneously
heard, commingling with the primitive
instruments of the Apache, were the brass
horns, woodwinds and strings of a hotel
orchestra mesmerizing the polite society
assembled for an evening of Bach and
Beethoven.
After almost a year at St. Augustine, the
Ft. Marion Apaches (along with Geronimo
and the rest at Fort Pickens) were relocated
to a desolate post on the Mobile River in
Alabama. Many died there from malaria
or tuberculosis the "coughing disease" -
as did Lozen. Five years after, they were
relocated to Ft. Sill, Oklahoma where
Geronimo drew his last breath 23 years into
captivity. A few of those who had sung
at the ramparts of Florida's Fort Marion
gathered then in the cold Oklahoma rain
to sing again a desert song, this one of the
Blessing Way that that would take them
home again.

The GFYRA began in
September of 2005 and
provides rodeo events for
cowboys and cowgirls
from 14 to 19 years of
age. While competing
the contestants win
money, awards, and a
chance to go to Shawnee,
Okla. to run in the
International Finals ..
Rodeo. Participants
in this dedicated group of Lizy Dunn
enthusiasts must keep up a
2.0 GPA in school in order to continue with the program.
And, of course, the parents take on the job of dedication
along with their children in order to fit all the practices
necessary to be a winner like Lizy.
Lizy has been rodeoing for 6 years while working
towards a college scholarship to study equine dentistry.
It is lots of work but the benefits of participating in a
program like this far outweigh the daily effort required to
make it to the top.
Lizy will be competing this weekend in Ocala at the
Livestock Market and again on March 5th and 6th in
Williston with the high school rodeo association.
Come on out and support our local youth.
