More Dixie County

Arrests in Drug

Investigation
On Feb. 16, the Dixie County Sheriffs Office made additional
arrests in an ongoing prescription narcotics sales investigation that
began in October of 2010. All of those arrested show Dixie County
addresses as a place of residence. All of the charges for the Feb. 16
arrests revolve around the prescription drug oxycodone.
Rueben M. Carter, 29, from Cross City was charged with one count
of the sale of oxycodone and one count of trafficking in oxycodone.
Carla H. Kidd, 41, of Cross City, was charged with two counts of
trafficking in oxycodone. Deborah L. Burton, 33, of Old Town, and
Nikie I. Miller, 35, of Cross City, were each charged with one count of
trafficking in oxycodone. Miller's husband, Mack Miller, 36, of Cross
City, is currently in jail in another jurisdiction on unrelated charges.
He will be charged with one count of the sale of oxycodone and one
count of trafficking.
On Feb.18, an additional arrest was made when Willie T. Fincher,
Jr., 47, of Old Town was arrested and charged with one count of
trafficking in oxycodone. Fincher was also arrested for a violation of
probation on a previous aggravated battery case.
All defendants in this case are being
S held under a $750,000 bond.

Mayor Questions Apportioned Costs for New 911


By Roz Tartaglione
Staff Writer

At the Levy County Board of County Commissioners meeting
February 22, Chiefland's mayor Teal Pomeroy questioned costs to
the city associated with the Sheriffs Office proposal to go to a 'silent
dispatch' system. The new system would replace the dispatch services
in use now for fire rescue, fire departments, EMS and police currently
provided by the Sheriffs Office. Under the new proposal, Chiefland
and other municipalities would be assessed a proportional cost of
hiring four new dispatchers to handle the county's emergency services
and law enforcement calls. Pomeroy asked what the plans are for the
$41,000+ spending increase that Chiefland would be asked to provide.
Commissioner Danny Stevens responded that the proposal has yet
to come before the board. Stevens said he and other commissioners
had questions and concerns about the LCSO plan, which would
require laptops or mobile devices be installed in vehicles responding to
911 calls.
Stevens explained that there were two issues involved in the
assessment for the new service: the $7,500 initial outlay to set up
silent dispatch for Chiefland, Cedar Key, Inglis, EMS and county


fire rescue services, and the share-of-cost based on the number of
calls currently handled by LCSO dispatch for each municipality. The
share-of-cost covers the cost of hiring four new dispatchers to cover
all the municipalities. Levy County EMS would shoulder the largest
burden of the load, nearly $76,000, while Chiefland's proposed share
would exceed $41,000. Inglis and Cedar Key would also be assessed
proportionately smaller shares of the total cost for software and
dispatcher salaries.
Pomeroy pointed out to commissioners that the state statute for
911, which mandates how agencies appropriate and spend money for
services, does not single out cities, EMS or fire departments to pay
more for 911 service than county residents. Instead, he said, the statute
indicates that the county is responsible.
The statute specifically states that: "The money collected and
interest earned in this fund shall be appropriated for these purposes
by the county commissioners and incorporated into the annual county
budget."
Pomeroy asked commissioners to "seriously look out for the cities,"
and consider grant money that is available through the rural county
state law for 911 services, rather than singling out Chiefland, Cedar
Key and Inglis. continued on page 13

New Education Bill a Work in Progressing


By Kathy Hilliard
Staff Writer

"We have 111,000 kids in the state of
Florida who have failed two or more times
which cost us $1.7 billion. I could give
some teachers raises with $1.7 billion," said
Education Committee Chairman Steve Wise,
R-Jacksonville, who wrote and introduced
Senate Bill 736 dubbed the Race to the Top
for Student Success Act that passed at the
Florida Senate Education Committee session
on Feb. 10, 2011. The bill is currently on the
Budget Committee Agenda for Feb. 23, 2011.
And so the debate goes on with both sides
having valid points based on what they know
and want for education in Florida.
"The current way it is today is unacceptable


for Florida public education," said Sen. Bill
Montford, a Tallahassee Democrat who
also is head of the state's superintendents'
organization. According to Montford
the bill reduces teachers' confidence in
the continuation of their jobs due to
performance evaluations that are based on the
performances of the students. "A tremendous
amount of change is coming to Florida K-12.
It's long overdue," Montford said.
Sen. Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach says
that this legislation is "the next major logical
step in education reform," but adds that the
legislation is building upon the state's A-Plus
system.
Senate Bill 736 would dramatically change
how teachers are paid and evaluated. Teachers
hired in the State of Florida after 2014 would


not receive tenure. Their pay raises would
largely be based on how well their students
perform on standardized tests.
On February 16, the Florida House K-20
Competitiveness Committee chaired by Rep.
Erik Fresen released a proposed committee
bill with only a few differences but at this
time they are substantively the same. This is
the first pass and the bill will be amended
throughout the process.
Last year similar legislation, Senate Bill Six
was approved by the legislature. But former
Gov. Charlie Crist vetoed the legislation.
According to Wise, the legislation is meant
to improve the academic performance of
students, not to punish teachers.
Andy Ford, president of the Florida
Education Association, the statewide teachers

FWC Meets to Discuss Tag-Report System Removal

for Deer Hunting, Other Issues Wed. and Thurs. 23-24


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) are meeting Feb. 23
and 24 in Apalachicola to act
on various fishing, hunting,
recreational and wildlife issues.
The sessions begin at 8:30 a.m.
each day and are open to the
public. The meeting is in the
third-floor courtroom of the
Franklin County Courthouse, 33
Market St.
Traditionally, the Commission
discusses marine fisheries issues
on the second day, but this time it
will take up draft rules regarding
red drum (redfish) and bonefish
on tl_ first day, to allo' the
appropriate number of days to


advertise any proposed marine
fisheries rules that would be
decided on at the next meeting.
Today, Feb. 23, Commissioners
will:
consider a proposed draft
rule that would establish three
regional management areas
for red drum, raise the daily
recreational bag limit for red
drum from one fish to two in
Northeast and Northwest Florida,
create a statewide eight-fish vessel
limit for red drum and modify the
red drum off-the-water possession
limit;
consider a proposed draft rule
that would make bonefish a catch-
and-release only fishery, allow the


temporary possession ofbonefish
for photograph and record
purposes, and create a tournament
exemption permit to allow
temporary possession ofbonefish
for tournament weigh-ins.
review a report on a goliath
grouper stock assessment and
implications for future goliath
grouper management, and
consider various federal fisheries
management issues.
consider a staff
recommendation to remove the
Flagler County Manatee Zones
draft rule proposal from the
agenda to allow additional time to
develop the proprcal.
hear another waterway issue


- an anchoring and mooring
pilot program. The Commission
will hear a staff report and
recommendations for two
locations on the west coast and
one within Monroe County for
the pilot program. Under Florida
Statutes, the Commission must
select five sites by July 1. The cities
of Sarasota and St. Petersburg
are likely to be accepted into
phase one of the pilot program as
the west coast participants. The
remaining two selections must be
from the east coast.
A mooring field is a controlled
area where boaters tie their
vessels to a floating buoy,

Two-Car Crash in Levy

County Leaves Two

Unbelted Juveniles in

Serious Condition

On Wednesday, February 16, 2011, a 2000 Plymouth
van with 5 passengers was traveling south on NW 70th
Ave. approaching CR 346A southeast of Fanning Springs.
The 18-year-old driver of the van failed to stop at the
intersection and proceeded across both lanes of traffic.
A 1999 Acura sedan, driven by an 18-year-old motorist,
struck the van on the right side, head on. The rear of
the van struck a fence corner post and came to final rest
on top of the fence, ejecting a 15-year-old passenger of
the van, who was not wearing a seatbelt, through the
rear window. She was transported to Shands in serious
condition. A second passenger, 17 years old, and also
not wearing a seatbelt, was injured and taken to Shands
in serious condition. The Florida Highway Patrol reports
that seat belts were in use by the drivers of both vehicles
who were uninjured.

March Named "Be A NO

PHONE DRIVER Month"
Drivers over the age of 25 cause 70% of distracted driver
crashes due to internal distractions, with those age 30
to 39 years leading the way in cell phone caused crashes.
Cell phones distract drivers and distracted drivers caused
2.1 million crashes across the USA last year, resulting in
preventable deaths.
Teens in Junior Civitan Clubs across Florida, the USA,
Canada, Europe, Africa and Asia will be raising public
awareness of our dangerous obsession with cell phone use
while driving, especially alerting new drivers throughout
the month of March.
What is so important that it cannot wait until a driver
finds a safe spot to stop? What gives any driver the right
to endanger passengers, other drivers, walkers and bike
riders?
In a recent report published by the National Safety
Council, it was estimated that a person who is talking on
the phone while driving is four times more likely to get
into a car crash than someone who has 100% focus on the
road. The study also found that a person who is texting
while driving is eight times more likely to get into a car
crash.
If you are a passenger while a driver is using the cell
phone or otherwise distracted, ask him or her to wait until
it is safe to pull over. It is your life and your right urges
Florida teen, Zachary Rivera, Junior Civitan Governor.
While there are many internal sources of driver
distraction, causing 17% of all crashes, cell phone use
remains the cause of 11% of distracted driver crashes,
according to the National Safety Council.
The US Department of Transportation reports broad
bans on texting behind the wheel have already been
enacted in 30 states and the District of Columbia; 11 of
those laws were passed last year. Eight other states have
bans that apply only to novice drivers.
Regulators said texting is particularly dangerous
because it distracts drivers in three ways: visually,
manually and cognitively. Even talking on a hands
free cell phone is a cognitive distraction reports U.S.
Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.
Progress has been made with more than 550 U.S.
companies -- employing 1.5 million people nationwide --
committed to enacting anti-distracted driving policies this
year. However crashes caused by driver distraction have
not reduced.
Pledge to be a NO PHONE DRIVER online
at Florida Junior Civitan and encourage others to
pledge. The life you save could be your own! www.

Rocky and Republicans


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

Rocky Marciano was the
only heavyweight champion
who never lost a single fight
in his whole career-- and,
at the time, he seemed the _
least likely fighter to do that. I'
In many a boxing match, he
was battered, bruised and
bleeding.
One of the reasons
Marciano took so much
punishment in the ring was ... -
that he had shorter arms
than most other heavyweights. It was easier for others to
hit him than for him to hit them.
In a sense, Republicans today are in a similar position
in the political arena. With most of the media heavily
tilted toward the Democrats, Republicans are going to get
hit far more often than they are going to get in their own
punches.
The difference is that Rocky Marciano understood from
the beginning that he was going to get hit more often, and
prepared himself for that kind of fight. His strategy was
to concentrate on developing punches powerful enough to
nullify his opponents' greater number of punches.
Republicans take the opposite approach from that of
Rocky Marciano-- and often with opposite results. That
may be why they managed to lose both houses of Congress
and the White House in recent years, in a country where


there are millions more people who call themselves
conservatives than there are who call themselves liberals.
Knowing that they are going to get hit more often in
the media, you might think that Republicans would put
extra time and effort into developing a knockout message.
In reality, however, Republicans seem to invest much
less time and thought into getting their political message
across than is done by the Democrats.
First of all, Democrats develop words and phrases that
they all use, so that the public hears those same words
and phrases over and over again, until they sink in.
Republicans have nothing to match the Democrats' catch
phrases like "social justice" or "tax cuts for the rich."
Back when George W. Bush first emerged on the
national political scene in 2000, Democrats said that he
lacked "gravitas." The media kept repeating it. People who
had never used the word "gravitas" in years were suddenly
saying "gravitas" 24/7 on news programs, interview shows
and in the newspapers and magazines.
When have you ever known the Republicans to be that
coordinated?
Not only do Republicans fail to take the initiative when
it comes to political rhetoric, they are not very good at
counter-punching when they are hit.
How often have you heard "tax cuts for the rich" from
Democrats- without the Republicans saying anything to
counter the implication that they are just looking out for
a relatively few wealthy people, while millions of other
people are losing their jobs and their homes?
The facts are all on the Republicans' side. But, unless
someone articulates those facts, they will be like the


proverbial tree that falls in


Entitlements:

... a Debate Deferred


By Howard Rich

Washington politicians have worked
themselves into a fine lather lately
debating spending cuts. Yet as familiar
rhetorical jabs are exchanged over
proposed reductions to things like NPR
and the National Archives, the real
spending debate is being ignored.
I'm referring of course to the debate
over "entitlements" decades worth of
multi-trillion dollar promises made by
former Congresses that had no intention
whatsoever of keeping any of them.
Once a distant dilemma, entitlements
are now the "wolf at the door," a present,
pernicious threat to the immediate
fiscal health of our nation. Yet as this
unprecedented wave of red ink crests over
our country- dwarfing the debate over
discretionary spending politicians of
both parties remain incapable of leveling
with the public regarding the damage to
come.
In fact entitlement reform isn't even
part of the budgetary conversation.
Fiscal conservatives in the U.S. Senate
have correctly criticized recent budget
reductions proposed by the U.S. House as
inadequate.
"They're talking about cutting
$35 billion," U.S. Sen. Rand Paul
(R-Kentucky) said last week. "We spend
$35 billion in five days. We add $35
billion to the debt in nine days. It's not
enough and we will not avoid financial
ruin in our country if we do not think
more boldly."
On the other end of the political
spectrum, Senator Majority Leader
Harry Reid (D-Nevada) accused House
Republicans of inviting a government
shutdown by proposing cuts that "would
be devastating to our economy and send us
back into a recession."
What no one is addressing, however, are
unavoidable changes to Social Security,
Medicaid and Medicare that have been
ignored for decades despite ominous
warnings and soaring unfunded liabilities.
Even after a special commission appointed
by President Barack Obama recommended
entitlement reform, the White House
once again dodged the issue in its budget
this week, saying that entitlements "will
be part of the conversation over the next
several years."
The next several years?
The problem with "kicking the can
down the road" is that eventually the
road runs out and when it comes to
entitlements, America is fast approaching
that point.
Spending on Social Security, Medicare
and Medicaid currently consumes almost
half of the federal budget a figure
that's expected to climb to 64 percent by
the end of the decade, according to the
Committee for a Responsible Federal
Budget (CRFB).
Social Security will see its costs soar


as the first of the baby boomers have
already begun retiring. According to the
latest estimates, enrollment in Social
Security will increase from 44 million
to 73 million over the next two decades,
far outpacing the "new investors" in this
massive government-run Ponzi scheme.
In 2015, the program will begin running
permanent deficits and by 2035 it will
have nearly exhausted its trust funds.
"The program is expected to grow from
4.8 percent of GDP today to nearly 6.1
percent in 2030," a recent CRFB report
calculated.
Meanwhile the retirement of the
baby boomers means that Medicare
enrollment will grow from 47 million
to 80 million over the next two decades
creating yet another cost crunch.
Currently representing 3.6 percent of
GDP, Medicare will consume 5.1 percent
of GDP in 2030 according to a recent
report published by the Kaiser Family
Foundation.
Beyond these twin behemoths is the
explosive growth of Medicaid the state
health care system which saw its ranks
swell by more than 6 million during the
first two years of the recession. According
to a recent survey of state health care
directors, Medicaid spending grew by 8.8
percent in 2010 well above the projected
rate of 6.3 percent and the highest rate of
growth in eight years.
Rather than reining in entitlement
growth, however, government recently
created a brand new entitlement -
"Obamacare." It also borrowed trillions of
dollars to pay for bailouts and new deficit
spending, the combined effect of which
has created an unprecedented interest
crunch. In fact, the Congressional Budget
Office estimated earlier this month that
interest payments on the national debt
alone will consume $5.5 $6.8 trillion
over the coming decade.
How are we going to pay for all of this?
Keynesians want to raise taxes, but such
a shortsighted solution simultaneously
ignores the root of the problem while
limiting our ability to pay back that
mountain of money.
"Higher tax rates will reach a point
of diminishing returns when revenue
declines," Jim Powell of the Cato Institute
wrote recently. "Taxes cannot save the
entitlements."
Nothing can save entitlements at least
not as they are currently configured. That's
why instead of being ignored they must
be put on the table along with every other
program funded by government and cut.

an empty forest.
What are called "tax cuts for the rich" have been
reductions in high tax rates under four different
administrations, including the Democratic administration
ofJohn F. Kennedy. In each case, going all the way back
to the 1920s, the reduced tax rates have led to increased
tax revenues for the government.
"The rich" have ended up paying both a higher total
amount of taxes and a larger share of all taxes than they
did before what were called "tax cuts for the rich." The
reason is very straightforward: high tax rates that people
don't actually pay do not bring the government as much
revenue as lower tax rates that they do pay.
High tax rates drive investors into tax shelters like
tax-exempt bonds or drive their investments out of the
country altogether, costing Americans jobs. This is not
rocket science-- and the data are there to prove it. But
somebody has to say it.
Unlike Rocky Marciano, Republicans don't seem to
see a need to work on their punches. They are going to
need some knockout punches ifBarack Obama calls
their bluff on raising the national debt limit, and there
is a government shutdown that will be blamed on the
Republicans. A few light jabs will not save them.

Michelle Obama: First Lady


ofJunk Science
By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

While her husband may have paid lip
service to ending the abuse of science for
"politics or ideology," first lady Michelle
Obama gave herself a super-sized waiver.
Two of her showcase social engineering
campaigns -- tax preferences for breast-
pumping working mothers and expanded
nutrition labels -- are based on distorting
or dismissing the prevailing public health
literature.
Just as the White House costumed
Obamacare activists in white lab coats,
the fashionable Mrs. O has cloaked her
meddling anti-obesity crusade in medical
fakery.
Over the past year, the first lady has
marshaled a taxpayer-subsidized army
of government lawyers, bureaucrats and
consultants against the "national security
threat" of childhood obesity. She has
transformed the East Wing of the White
House into Big Nanny's new Central
Command headquarters. The biggest
threats to Mrs. Obama's 70-point plan for
national fitness: parental authority and
sound science.
As part of her "Let's Move!" anniversary
celebration this week, Mrs. Obama rolled
out a new breastfeeding initiative because
"kids who are breastfed longer have a
lower tendency to be obese." She made
her assertion to an invitation-only group
of handpicked reporters who were barred
from asking questions about her scientific
conclusions. It's not healthy to challenge
Super Nanny, you see.
After the Internal Revenue Service
carefully studied and rejected an advocacy
push to treat nursing equipment as a tax-
deductible medical expense last fall, the
tax agency suddenly reversed itself in time
for the first lady's new public relations tour.
The surgeon general has also issued a "Call
to Action" to pressure private businesses to
adopt more nursing-friendly environments
to combat childhood obesity, all while
denying that government is intruding on
personal decisions. "No mother should be
made to feel guilty if she cannot or chooses
not to breastfeed," Surgeon General
Regina Benjamin asserted, while laying
an unmistakable guilt trip on moms and
moms-to-be.
So, what do studies on breastfeeding
and babies' weight actually say? Rebecca
Goldin, Ph.D., research director of George
Mason University's Statistical Assessment
Service, points out that the literature is
inconclusive or demonstrates that the
health advantages of bosom over bottle are
short-lived:
"Indeed, there is little evidence that
using formula causes obesity. There is
a correlation between formula use and
obesity among babies and children ...
though this correlation is not consistent
in all studies. Some of these studies show
a relationship in only some demographics
and not others. Others show that the
disadvantage of bottle-feeding and/or
formula mostly goes away by the time a
child is about 4 years old.
"The result is that we cannot discover
whether breastfeeding is correlated with
obesity because infant formula or bottle
feeding leads to subsequent overeating or
disposition to being overweight, or whether
those parents who breastfeed are also more


likely to offer
their children
green beans
instead of
French fries.
Despite weak
evidence,
there is a
lingering
conviction
that formula
causes obesity
among pediatricians and the press; if
anything, the study about infants should
make us reflect more carefully on this
conclusion."
Alas, such nuance from Mrs. Obama
and her unquestioning media water-
carriers is scarcer than tofu at Taco Bell.
Don't get me wrong. As a proud mom
who breastfed both of her babies, I've
been and will always be a vocal defender
of women who have devoted the time,
dedication and selflessness it takes. But
there are myriad individual reasons beyond
Mrs. O's expansive goal of battling the
collective scourge of childhood obesity
-- intimate bonding and health benefits for
the mom, not just the baby, for example --
that lead women to nurse.
And we don't need Big Brother or Big
Mother to lead the Charge of the Big
Bosom to persuade us of the personal
benefits. Many private hospitals and
companies have already adopted nursing-
friendly environments. If it's as good
for their bottom lines as it is for babies'
bottoms, they don't need a government
mandate to do the right thing.
But as I've noted many times over the
past year, Mrs. O's real interest isn't in
nurturing nursing moms or slimming
down kids' waistlines. It's in boosting
government and public union payrolls,
along with beefing up FCC and FTC
regulators' duties.
Take another East Wing pet project:
leaning on private businesses to print
expanded front-package nutrition labels
warning consumers about salt, fat and
sugar. The first lady's anti-fat brigade
assumes as an article of faith that her top-
down designer food labels will encourage
healthier eating habits. It's a "no-brainer,"
Mrs. Obama insists.
However, the latest study on this
very subject -- funded by no less than
the left-wing Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation -- confirms other recent
research contradicting the East Wing
push. A team led by Duke-NUS Graduate
Medical School's Eric Finkelstein,
published in the peer-reviewed American
Journal for Preventive Medicine, found
that mandatory menu-labeling in Seattle
restaurants did not affect consumers
calorie consumption. "Given the results of
prior studies, we had expected the results
to be small," the researchers reported,
"but we were surprised that we could not
detect even the slightest hint of changes
in purchasing behavior as a result of the
legislation."
Will the first lady and her food cops be
chastened by the science that undermines
their spin? Fat chance.

It Takes a Real Dummy to


Be a Know It A

It was the winter of 85', and I don't
think the good folks of Utah knew quite
what to think about this Mississippi boy
hitting their pretty white ski slopes in
his bright orange Fed-Ex work jumpsuit.
Chances are they were a bit relieved
when I got back on that big cargo jet to
Memphis.
I should've known I was out of my
element the minute I tried on those crazy
ski boots. They tilted me forward so bad
I could practically sweep the floor with
my nose hair. Probably a big factor as to
why I slid off out of control as soon as I
stepped out of the lodge, and toppled all
those innocent bystanders waiting for the
ski lift. At that point I probably should've
considered everyone's strongly worded
advice, and took some ski lessons. I was
just too hard headed. The way I figured it,
I could always work on my stopping and
turning techniques once I got to the top
of the mountain.
Even in those leaning boots, I stood
well over 6 foot. So when that chair lift
came by, it caught me low behind the
calf and folded my legs like a cheap suit.
One ski got trapped under the chair
and flopped right off. Before I knew it I
was being hauled up into the air with a
warm sock dangling out in the mountain
breeze. I didn't know what to do. So I
jumped. I was only ten or fifteen feet up
and survived the fall, however, the lift
operator wasn't too pleased. In fact, he
was madder than a wet hen about having
to pull that big lever and shut down the
whole mountain. I reckon he cussed me
four days past Sunday.
Now I didn't cotton to that sort of
treatment, so I started for him, intent on

HARVEY G. SMITH
Harvey G. Smith of Old Town, formally of
North Bloomfield, Ohio passed peacefully from
this life on earth to his heavenly home with Jesus
with his loving wife Doretha and family by his
side on Tuesday, February 6, 2011 at the age of
82.
Harvey was an Army engineer in World War
II from 1945 to 1949. In 1951 Harvey went to
work with Trumbull Plumbing Supply in Warren,
Ohio and was promoted to General Manager. He
retired in 1971 and went to work with Packard
Electric a division of General Motors in Warren.
After retiring from GM in 1991 he and his
wife Barbara moved to Old Town where he had
purchased property in 1964.

too intent with Guy Sheffield
on parting
company. Eventually the guy had to come
and help drag me back up. My temper had
sort of fizzled by then, so I just got back in
the line and waited quietly.
Eventually I made it up the mountain,
but it might be noted that my whole snow
skiing experience went downhill from
there. When I finally tumbled to the
bottom sometime around noon, I had two
little words forever etched in my mind.
"SKI LESSONS"
What is it about submitting to
instruction that causes our human nature
to rebel so? Am I the only one who has
wobbly furniture in my house because I
don't even look for the instruction manual
until I've gotten so confused I've screwed
my shirt tail to my shoe? That's probably
why I tumbled down hill for so many
years of my life. Regrettably, I've toppled
many innocent bystanders along the way
too.
It's awfully hard keeping your skis
pointed in the right direction on these
slippery slopes of life without humility.

Spring Turkey Hunting


Season Has Two New Rules


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
reminds hunters that there are changes this
spring turkey season.
Because of safety concerns among
Florida's turkey hunters, the FWC passed
a rule that limits the methods of take
allowed during spring turkey hunts on
wildlife management areas (WMAs). The
new rule restricts guns to shotguns and
muzzleloading shotguns (using shot no
larger than No. 2) and allows bows and
crossbows. All rifles, pistols, buckshot and
slugs are prohibited during spring turkey
hunts on WMAs.
The exceptions are on Joe Budd, Raiford
and Santa Fe Swamp, where muzzleloading
rifles are still allowed because spring turkey
hunting on these areas is restricted to
primitive guns only.
This rule does not apply to turkey
hunting on private lands.
The second new rule establishes a special
two-day youth turkey hunt on private lands
the weekend prior to the opening of spring
turkey season in each hunting zone. In
Zone A (the southern portion of Florida,


south of State Road 70), this youth turkey
hunting weekend is Feb. 26-27. In the
remainder of the state, this special youth
hunt is March 12-13.
Only those under 16 years old may
harvest a turkey while supervised by an
adult, 18 years or older. And as long as the
adult supervisor doesn't actively participate
in the hunt, no license or permit is required
for either youth or adult.
If the adult wants to help "call in"
a turkey, set out decoys or participate
otherwise, he or she needs a hunting
license ($17 for residents, $46 for a 10-day
nonresident license) and turkey permit
($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents).
Nevertheless, only the youth can pull the
trigger. And any turkey harvested counts
toward the youth hunter's spring season
limit of two.
This spring, the youth turkey hunt
applies only to private property, the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes Area, the
Kissimmee River Public Use Area and
Lake Monroe WMA.

FWVC Meeting continuedfrom page 1
which is secured to the bottom of
the waterway. Florida Statutes require
the FWC, in consultation with the
Department of Environmental Protection,
to establish a pilot program regulating
anchoring and mooring outside of marked
public mooring fields to protect public
property and safety and the marine
environment against improperly stored,
abandoned or derelict vessels.
On Thursday, Feb. 24 the bulk of the
agenda focuses on hunting issues.
That day:
the Commission will vote on final
rules that affect hunting on many of
the state's wildlife management areas
(WMAs). Most of these new rules would
apply to specific WMAs; however, two
affect public hunting on a statewide scale.
One such statewide rule would establish
youth turkey hunts on 78 FWC-managed
areas, all of which support adequate turkey
populations, and create a youth turkey
quota permit. Fifty of the 78 areas would
require a youth turkey quota permit, and
only those youths who will be less than 16
years old on the last day of the youth turkey
hunt could apply for this opportunity.
These would be two-day, weekend hunts
the weekend prior to the opening of spring
turkey season on each particular WMA,
beginning with the 2012 season.
The other statewide rule proposal
Commissioners will discuss would remove
the one-gun restriction on all hog quota
hunts using dogs. These "hog-dog" quota
hunts allow only one hunter (permit-


holder), one gun, one assistant and up to
three dogs. An additional person also may
join the hunting party, if a guest permit
is obtained in that person's name. But
starting with the 2011-12 hunting season,
each participant would be allowed to hunt
with a gun.
the Commission will discuss
withdrawing the proposal for a tag and
reporting system for deer hunting, as well
as continuing discussions on alternative
systems for gathering deer-harvest data.
the FWC expects to finalize changes
in hunting dates for the 2011-12 season on
lands it manages. If approved, the rules for
these public lands would becorie effective
on July 1.
These adjustments would align the
seasons on wildlife management areas and
wildlife and environmental areas more
closely with the newly adopted zonal
season dates that took effect on private
lands last year and with the breeding
season and hunter preferences.
Commissioners may advance a rule
amendment giving alligator hunters four
hours of daylight each day during the
annual 11-week season, which runs from
Aug. 15 to Nov. 1. Only nighttime hunting
is legal now. If Commissioners move
forward with the rule amendment, they
will direct staff to advertise it and then
vote on the final amendment at their June
meeting.

-East Florida, 1774-
A young fellow came down the St. Johns
in a small boat where the wet landscape
moved from vast glades to towering
cypresses. Farther in, an upland rose along
the western bank the 'Indian bank' and
massive oaks crowned the leafy ridgelines.
Near sunset, he came to a sandy bluff
where three Indian trails converged at a
place known today as Astor.
A trading post sat on that bluff, one of
two on the river owned by a firm whose
principal was James Spalding, a prominent
merchant and plantation owner on St.
Simons Island, Georgia. Spalding was

one of the benefactors of the young man's
expedition. But the traveler's primary
patron was a wealthy British physician and
rare plant collector, Dr. John Fothergill,
who had substantially financed the young
man's botanical exploration. Spalding's
interest lay more in information regarding
possible trade routes in the Florida frontier.
He offered him passage to Florida on
one of his trade boats, as well as a letter
authorizing his trading posts to supply the
young botanist with such equipment and
supplies as he might require to journey
inland.

with both the middle and high school
Agriculture students. The old welding
stations were remodeled with the
assistance of the school board maintenance
department, and the newly designed
stations will allow for 12-14 students
per period to be enrolled in the class.
Students in grades 10-11 will need to talk
to the guidance counselor if interested
in enrolling for the next school year.
Students will be required to provide their
own safety boots, long sleeve welding
jackets, and personal items. Students will
be required to wear the appropriate safety

gentleman-explorer had come to beach his
boat at Spalding's 'upper store.' He was
greeted from the bluff by the operator of
the post, a large, gregarious man named
Job Wiggins. Wiggins was known widely
for his skill and trustworthiness as an
Indian trader and guide. He stood now
with his hands on his hips, scolding his
six children to assist the apparent stranger
with his packs, including a curious
assortment of notebooks, inks and quills.
Then Wiggins recognized the fellow
coming up the bluff. Why, it was "Billy"
whom he'd known as a boy traveling then
with his father, a botanist for the British
Crown.
While Billy was enjoying the hospitality
of Wiggins' lodge, they spoke of the
conditions for travel in wild Florida and
the rough network of Indian traders
operating inland, among whom Wiggins
was already legendary. The rough-cut
Wiggins liked Billy and was genuinely


interested in his expedition. So when
Billy asked at dinner for Wiggins'
recommendation for an expedition
guide, Viggins jovially offered his own
companionship.
Florida was still Spanish territory,
although the English were bearing down
again, sometimes setting up blockades
on the Spanish ports. James Spalding's
interest in Billy's expedition had less to
do with biology and more to do with an
expansion of his trade routes. In fact,
Spalding already had his representatives
fast at work adding three additional
outposts for trade: one fifty miles farther
up the St. Johns, another over on the
Suwannee, then called the Little St.
John. A third outpost, not more than fifty
miles from the Upper Store, was being
established at a place called Cuscowilla
near the banks of the Alachua Savannah or
Paynes Prairie as it is known today.

Trinity Catholic. A week earlier they
participated in a preseason "1st Pitch
Classic" hosted by Buchholz High
School, which saw the Red Devils go
1-1 in the tournament.
In the first game, Williston was
slow getting started against Ocala's
Forest High School, and found
themselves down 13-zip in the
bottom of the 6th. That is when the
Juniors staged a comeback with the
Devils scoring 9 runs in one inning.


Unfortunately, it was too little, too
late, and the Devils fell to the Class
4A Wildcats with a final score of
13-9. Multiple hitters were: Austin
Etheridge who went 2-4 (1 single, 1
double, and 2 runs), Bradley Jones
2-4 (1 RBI, 1 run, 2 singles), Justin
Baker 2-3 (1 RBI, 1 run, 1 single, 1
double), and Jared Caswell 2-4 (1
RBI, 1 run, 2 singles). Sophomore
Justin Forsythe went 2-4 (3 RBIs, 1
run, 2 singles).
The 2nd game of the Classic, found
the Red Devils pounding the Lake
Weir Hurricanes. Williston scored


Elementary was honored

speaker. It's individuals
like Thaddeus Bullard who

5 runs in the first 3 innings and held
the Hurricanes scoreless until the 4th
inning. Austin Etheridge went 3-4
with 2 singles and a double, and had
1 RBI. Justin Forsythe hit a single,
and his first home run of the season.
Connor Clayton, Justin Forsythe,
Bradley Jones, Covin Terrell, Jared
Caswell, Justin Moody, and Cody
Head all had singles, and Justin Baker
hit a double. The Devils went on to
win 12-1.
Go Red Devils!

Gator Visit Motivates BES Students


Bronson Elementary School was honored
to have a visit from former Gator Defensive
End Thaddeus Bullard. Mr. Bullard visited
Bronson Elementary to speak to the students
on their potential. He shared information
about his youth and how he overcame
significant obstacles and proven people wrong
over the years. As he was growing up, Mr.
Bullard was told he would not graduate high
school nor would he be successful. Not only
did he graduate high school as valedictorian,
but he also graduated from the University of
Florida with two degrees. After graduating
from UF, he played for the Jacksonville
Jaguars and went on to his current career with
WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment).
He is known as "Titus O'Neil," a professional
wrestler for the WWE. Through all of his
accomplishments he has continued to prove
many people wrong.
His visit to Bronson Elementary School Forme
was one that our students will remember for BES ab
many years to come. Hearing his background
and seeing his success gives our students a connection
to just how successful they can be. He took time out
of his schedule to not only speak with our students and
encourage them to be their best, but he also reminded
them that they are all winners! No matter what anyone
says, you can reach your goal if you are willing to work
towards it. Several students had the opportunity to ask
questions regarding his education and career. Bronson


Red Devils Top

Chiefland in First Game
In the first regular game of the season, the WHS Red
Devils' baseball team defeated the Chiefland Indians
12-4. Junior Austin Etheridge had a stellar night at the
plate, going 2-4 with a triple, an RBI, and 1 run. Connor
Clayton and Justin Forsythe also had triples back to back.
Sophomore Dillon Moody was 2-2 with an RBI, and
Justin Baker added a double. Christian Morris, Dylan
Blaylock, and Connor Clayton pitched for the Devils, and
Bradley Jones caught all seven innings.

WHS Loses to Trinity Catholic
The WHS baseball Devils did not play up to their
potential in an ugly loss at home to Trinity Catholic on
Friday night Feb.18. Pitching for the Devils were juniors
Justin Baker, Austin Etheridge, and Connor Clayton, and
BradleyJones was behind the plate. The Devils were held
to no runs through the first 5 innings. The 6th inning
sparked some excitement when after Trinity loaded the
bases with walks, Christian Morris hit a grand slam over
the right field wall, scoring 4. Bradley Jones doubled up
to deep center, followed byJustin Baker's 2 run homer.
This would end the Devil's comeback and the game ended
with a sloppy, error filled, home loss of 9-6.

This Week's Games
On Friday and Saturday, February 25-26 the 3rd
Annual "Catching a Cure" Breast Cancer Awareness

Will Irby continuedfrom page 8


During the late 1600s, Paynes Prairie
had been the site of the Rancho de La
Chua, the largest cattle ranch in Spanish
Florida owned by the politically powerful
Menendez Marquez family until the early
18th century. From the La Chua they
herded their long-horned Andalusia cattle
to the Suwannee where the beef were
loaded onto Spanish sailing ships bound
for the markets in Cuba. By the time of
Wiggins' and Billy's visit, however, the
ranch had long since been in decline.
Abandoned strays had increased in number
and roamed widely across the wet prairie.
Now these were herded by a Seminole tribe
led by a chief named Ahaya known to the
English as 'Cowkeeper.'
Ahaya had led his people south out of
Georgia where frequent conflicts seared
in him a growing hatred for the Spanish.
Here along the forested rim and out across
the vast plain of the Alachua Savannah,
Cowkeeper and his Seminole tribe, the
Alachuas, lived in relative peace. Seasoned
by adversity, his mettle long tested by war,
the old chief was an apparently a contented
man in a paradise of his own choosing.
Within a few days of his arrival at the
Lower Store that April, Billy followed
Wiggins' trading party out the westbound
path en route for their newly-established
trading house on the Alachua Savanna.
From the Lower Store they wound
their way inland toward Cowpen Lake,
identified in the botanists' notes as
Halfway Pond. The party then crossed
Little Orange Lake, Lochloosa Creek
(near the western corner of Orange Lake),
and finally Tuscawilla Lake to arrive at
the village of Cuscowilla, where Seminole
children chasing crows from the communal
garden met them gleefully out on the path
ahead.
In this garden that served the village,
Billy listed corn, melons, squash and
potatoes among the vegetables grown
on fertile bottomlands bordering the
savannah. Billy made other observations
of life in Cuscowilla, and he wrote
comprehensively about the nearby
savannah:
"The extensive Alachua savanna is a level
green plain, above fifteen miles over, fifty
miles in circumference, and scarcely a tree
or bush of any kind to be seen on it. It is
encircled with high, sloping hills, covered
with waving forests and fragrant Orange
groves, rising from an exuberantly fertile
soil. The towering magnolia grandiflora
and transcendent Palm stand conspicuous
among them...Herds of sprightly deer,
...squadrons of the beautiful fleet Seminole

Guy Sheffield continuedfrom page 5


horse, flocks of turkeys, civilized
communities of the sonorous watchful
crane, mix together, appearing happy and
contented in the enjoyment of peace, till
disturbed and affrighted by the warrior
man.
This was a tranquil, safe location for
Ahaya and his people. The forests were
abundant with game, the lakes with fish,
and then there were the fat prairie cows
that they rounded up at will on horses,
most of which had also descended from
the old Spanish ranch stock. So it was by
this herding that ChiefAhaya earned his
English moniker, 'Cowkeeper.'
Soon after Billy and the Wiggins
party arrived at Cuscowilla, Cowkeeper
announced there would be a feast.
Altogether they celebrated that night
before the council-house in the public
square of Cuscowilla. Some of the food
prepared came from smaller family gardens
located within the earthen bank that
encompassed the village. This low berm,
as Billy learned, had been formed from
the practice of the Alachuas to keep their
village "carefully swept."
As guests of their hospitable hosts
Wiggins and Billy enjoyed: "venison,
stewed with bear's oil, fresh corn cakes,
milk and hominy and our drink honey
and water, very cool and agreeable."
Billy recounted: "The banquet succeeds,
the ribs of the choicest fat pieces of the
bullocks excellently barbequed." The
young gentleman was much less impressed
with his serving of "tripe soup," as the
traders called it, this from the minced
belly of the cow, "not over cleansed of its
content," then made into a soup "spiced
with aromatic herbs...not quite strong
enough to extinguish its original savor and
scent." Prized as this culinary crescendo
was among the Alachuas, it elicited a rare
expression of disfavor by the gentleman
from Philadelphia.
Old Cowkeeper, more amused than
insulted by Billy's peculiarities, expressed
to Wiggins that he'd taken a liking to
his odd guest whose avowed interest in
chronicling all things botanical within
Cowkeeper's domain earned him a
moniker of his own. The chief pronounced
him: "Puc Puggy!" That, as Wiggins
explained after the approving laughter
of all assembled in the firelight, meant
'Flower Hunter.' For some men that
nickname may not have been particularly
prized. But for William Bartram, it gave
expression to the meaning of his journey
and the value his great adventure would
hold for generations to come.


My life has often ended up so discombobulated I've had
to stick my head out of my orange leg hole just to breathe!
Thankfully, I've finally admitted my need for some sort of
operator's manual. What do you know? There was one right
there on the coffee table! It's called the Bible. Turns out, the
Bible was written by our Manufacturer. (For the prophecy came
not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake
as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21 KJV)
God's the one who designed us, so who better to show us
how our lives are supposed to be assembled? The Lord even
-provides an eternal lifetime guarantee to those who will put
their trust Him. It was an offer I couldn't refuse. I finally
hopped off the throne of my own life and gave Jesus His
rightful place as KING. Now when I need repairs or assistance,
I simply call the 24hr help hotline. Jesus is always personally
manning the line.
-Guy Sheffield
But anyway- Why don't you give Him a call? Don't wait until
the Lift Operator has to pull the lever on you. I guess what I'm
trying to say is, "It takes a real dummy to be a know-it-all." Now
don't go arguing with me. I know I'm right. You can visit Guy

Education Bill continued from page 1

union said he believes the legislation
places too much emphasis on standardized
tests.
Florida teacher unions have opposed
basing teacher evaluations on the
standardized test scores of students. There
is concern that even if a teacher received the
accolades and votes of their peers and the
awards that go with that, this new system
based on student performance might not
include them for any merit pay.
Based on certain criteria set out in the bill
teachers would earn one of four designations
- unsatisfactory, needs improvement,
effective and highly effective. Under the
new pay plan, they would get raises only if
they earned one of the top two ratings.
But, it is not only the teachers that will
be evaluated under this bill. "We are going
to be evaluating the principals, the assistant
principals, the guidance counselors, the
whole team at the school," said Wise.
SB 736 will grandfather-in the current
teacher pay plans but set up a new merit-
based plan for teachers hired after July 1,
2014. The teacher evaluation will be based
on multiple measures and might even make
way for parental involvement. At least 50
percent would be based on student test-
score data which could consider factors like

911 Cost continuedfrom page 1


a student's absentee rate.
Some of the criteria under the new bill
starts as ofJuly 1, 2011 including pay raises
based on advanced degrees. As of July 1,
2011 those advanced degrees must be in the
teachers' "area of certification" not just any
advanced degree. Currently that is not the
case.
Former chancellor of Washington DC
schools and founder of StudentsFirst.org
Michelle Rhee has partnered with Gov.
Scott to help improve Florida education.
Rhee stated on her website, "Florida has
made significant progress turning around
schools in the last decade with strong laws
requiring, for example, that every school
receive a letter grade. Governor Scott shares
our belief that not only do schools need
report cards, but so do teachers, so that
great teachers can be supported, recognized,
and retained with professional salaries and
protected from lay-offs. Our goal is that
every student has a highly effective teacher."
For more information on this partnership go
to StudentsFirst.org and add on 'Florida' to
quickly access the Florida division website.
Florida Governor Rick Scott supports
merit pay for teachers and has spoken out
against tenure for public school teachers.
Scott is expected to sign Senate Bill 736.


Levy County SheriffJohnny Smith's Office, which has borne the responsibility of
coordinating dispatch services for all of Levy County, say they will go with the new
silent dispatch system because it would better serve the county than the current one.
When Commissioner Johnson asked Pomeroy if he had had any complaints about
dispatch for Chiefland, he said, "No complaints about current service from our people so
far as dispatch." Johnson then asked about complaints from citizens. Pomeroy responded
that he knew of no complaints from citizens either.

Cummer Family Donates 14 Acres to LSN Wildlife Refuge


Fourteen acres on the bank of the Lower Suwannee
National Wildlife Refuge now are within refuge boundaries,
thanks to a generous donation by members of the Cummer
Family.
The acquisition of the high-valued Vista Camp parcel
provides unique access to the river that may one day allow
the refuge to develop a visitor center or other facilities that
could be used to directly showcase the Suwannee River to
the public. The donation process, initiated by members of
the Cummer Family, who are long-time friends of the refuge,
took nearly two years to bring to fruition. In 1971, much of
the land surrounding Vista was also donated by the Cummer
Sons Cypress Company to The Nature Conservancy so that it
could later be transferred to the refuge.
"The donation of this special place is a rare and remarkable
gift to the people of the United States," said Cynthia Dohner,
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Southeast Regional
Director. "It clearly demonstrates the Cummer Family's
legacy of devotion to the Suwannee River and their history of


land stewardship. On behalf of the Service and the National
Wildlife Refuge System, I want to extend a sincere thank you
to the Cummer Family for its generous donation."
The Vista property is located near the refuge headquarters
in Levy Counto, Florida, and was one of the last private
inholdings in the refuge.
"It v.,as the intention of our family to have this final,
former piece of Cummer Company property added to the
previous gift, so that others also may enjoy this special place,"
the donors said.
As part of the donation agreement, the donors will retain
the right to use the developed areas of Vista for their lifetime.
After that time, the Fish and Wildlife Service will obtain all
rights to the property.
The Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge was
established in 1979 to protect the last 20 miles of Stephen
Foster's famous Suwannee River and includes more than 20
miles of coastal marsh along Florida's Gulf Coast.
Refuge staff members manage these important lands to

restore habitat for native wildlife through forestry practices,
restoration of native species, and prescribed burning.
Recreational opportunities from birding, hiking, paddling,
hunting, fishing, and photography, abound.


Refuge Represented at the State


Fair
Lower Suwannee Nr!i..! .,i
Wildlife Refuge was represented
by Ranger Pam Darty at the
US Fish & Wildlife Service
booth at the State Fair last
week. The booth showcased our
local national wildlife refuges
and featured USFWS law
enforcement exhibit, "Buyer '
Beware." Exotic hides, ivory,
mounted sea turtles, and items
made from other protected
species demonstrate to the public
what they are prohibited from
bringing across America's borders.
Many visitors to the fair were winter
residents that were unfamiliar with the
Florida wildlife, so many questions were
about orientation to native critters. Many
native Floridians who attended were
nostalgic and shared stories of their youth
when our state was less crowded and
more environmentally sound. Children,
pulled along by their parents, craned their
neck to see the zebra and leopard hides,
the giant sea turtles and ivory tusks at the
booth, but never got a chance to stop.
"Those are the kids that all our
National Wildlife Refuges want to reach,

Keys National Wildlife Refuges were
represented at the State Fair by Refuge
Ranger Pam Darty.
to serve and possibly to employ later on,"
said Darty. "Those kids at the fair may be
the Rangers and Wildlife Biologists of
the future."
Enjoy your Lower Suwannee NWR by
birding at Dennis Creek, or paddling the
new trails, or fishing in the barrow pits,
or hunting with your daughter before she
marries and moves away. Free Ranger-
led programs are scheduled throughout
March; for more information call (352)
