Gruesome Gilchrist

County Find Leads to

Investigation

On Feb. 4, the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office received
information that an abandoned vehicle located in the Rolling Oaks
area might contain the remains of a human body. A search for the
vehicle was conducted. When it was located, it was taken to the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office impound yard. A search warrant was
obtained, and a search of the vehicle was conducted.
The partial remains of what appeared to be a human body was found
inside the vehicle in an extreme state of decomposition. The remains
were turned over to the Medical Examiner's Office.
From information obtained in this case, the remains may possibly
be those of an individual who died in Gilchrist County approximately
five years ago whose death was never reported.
An investigation is currently ongoing and we are in the process of
identifying the remains and the circumstances surrounding the death.

Chiefland City Commissioners heard from a resident at their
meeting on Monday night objecting to his potential out-of-pocket
costs as well as questioning the advantage to the city of requiring
households to hookup to city water lines.
At the last commission meeting, the board voted unanimously to
require 16 business and residential customers to tap into city water
sources within 120 days to avoid charges for the water meter ($548)
and plumbing permit fee ($50). New customers would still be required
to provide a $100 deposit, and to shoulder the costs of installing
a mandatory backflow preventer if they plan to use their wells for
irrigation only. The preventer and materials would cost about $100,
according to the letter the city sent to residents affected.
Gene Pollack, a Chiefland resident with a large parcel of land
on CR 345, pointed out that in his case, the out-of-pocket expense
would be substantial due to the nature of his lot, but also repeatedly
questioned the advantage of the mandatory rule to the city. He also
pointed out that because of the location of the hookup, his water
pressure would be substantially decreased from the current pressure he
gets from his well.

On Monday evening, Chiefland city
commissioners unanimously approved
site plans for a $650,000 Community
Development Block Grant for new lift
stations to handle waste water and re-paving
surfaces for streets in the northwest. Plans are
for three new waste water lift stations, which
raise the level of waste water with pumps so
that water flows with gravity to the waste
water treatment facility, to be installed on SW


Water hook ups are mandatory in the city's approved comprehensive
land use plan, when city water lines become available. Pollock pointed
out that he had an exemption from the commission in the past, and
asked the board whether or not the distance from a direct line to the
water source or the lot size could be taken into account when deciding
if the requirement applies to the lot owner. "One shoe should not fit
everyone," Pollock said. He asked what advantage the mandatory
hook up provides for the city. "Does it help the city with grant
money?" he asked.
Vice Mayor Teresa Barron said she did not believe it was fair now
to require mandatory hookup with an existing exemption from the
commission. The board voted to table the entire matter, including a
hold on the 120-day timeframe, until the city planning board took a
closer look at the problems with this landowner and others like him in
the city.
In other city business, commissioners approved a hike in the local
business tax (formally known as an occupational license) the city levies
each year. TIhe result of the hike adds about $1 to most occupations.
Auctioneers, carnivals, and revivals will pay about $4 to $6 dollars
more each year to renew their licenses.


2nd Court, SW 18th Avenue, and NW 19th
Avenue. At the last commission meeting on
February 14, the project manager informed
the city that they would not be able to locate
the third lift station proposed for the Eleanor
Village Mobile Home Park at its original
site on city property. The location best suited
for the station was a lot owned by Taylor
Schwarz/JZ Properties. When city staff
contacted the owner, Ms. Shwartz offered to
donate the property for the lift station. The
commission voted to accept the donation of
the lot, valued at $1,200 with gratitude.


Site plans also address the paving of several
surfaces around the city: NW 5th Street, NW
19th Avenue, and SW 2nd Drive.
The next step for the project is issuance
of a request for proposal (RFP) for bids to
complete the project. Once a bid has been
accepted, the project would commence. City
staffer Laurie Copeland told commissioners
that rolling construction should start in May,
if all goes as planned.
The RFP will ask for a base bid on the
water and sewer project. The alternate bid will
be for the remainder of the paving, if bids
come under the $650,000 grant, in order of
priority.

ife-ty Precautions


Do you and your family know for sure
what you would do in the event of a fire?
Like most people, we just run. But if there is
a plan in place and it has been practiced by all
the family, when the unexpected happens it
will not be just fearful reaction setting in but
a definitive plan to bring everyone to safety.
The safety plan starts with a family
meeting and a floor plan drawn by the family
artist with at least two methods of fire escape
in every room. Make a drawing for each
floor.' The dimensions do not need to be
correct. Make sure the plan shows important
details like the stairs, hallways and windows
'that can be used as fire escape routes.
Next, test all the windows and doors to see
if they open easy, are wide enough and tall
enough to get through in a hurry.
Now choose a safe meeting place outside
the house where all family members can
gather to make sure that everyone is out safe
and sound.
It is also a good idea to keep a bell and
flashlight in each bedroom.
A few safety tips to include in your plan


Always sleep with the bedroom doors
closed to keep deadly heat and smoke out
of the room which gives you more time to
escape.
Find a way for everyone to sound a family
alarm Yelling, pounding on walls, whistles,
etc. Practice yelling "FIRE."
In a fire, time is critical. Don't waste time
getting dressed, don't search for valuables.
Just get out.
Roll out of bed, stay low. One breath of
smoke or gas may be enough to kill.
Practice evacuating the building
blindfolded. In a real fire situation, the
amount of smoke generated by a fire most
likely will make it difficult to see.
Practice staying low to the ground when
escaping.
Feel all doors before opening. If a door is
hot, get out another way.
Learn to stop, drop to the ground, and
roll if your clothes catch fire.
With a little family time setting up a plan
and practicing the methods listed above you
just might save a life of a loved.

Voices of Moderation


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


Moderation- at least 1
verbal moderation-- is
suddenly in vogue.
President Obama's
rhetoric has moderated,
even if his policies and
practices have not. Among
Republicans, voices of
moderation are warning
that the party cannot win
elections without having a
"big tent" and reaching out
to Hispanics, for example. -
Recently, talk show host
Michael Medved has suggested that Rush Limbaugh and
Sarah Palin should moderate their attacks on Obama.
Moderation is fine-- if it is not carried to extremes. But
some moderates seem to think that it is always a good
thing to tone down your words. Yet history shows that
muffling your message can mean forfeiting many a battle
to extremists.
No one has had more of a mixed and muffled message
than Senator John McCain, which is why Barack Obama
is President of the United States.
Republican moderates warn their fellow Republicans
that they need to move away from the Ronald Reagan
approach, in order to attract a wider range of voters. But
Ronald Reagan won two consecutive landslide elections-
and he couldn't have done that if the only people who
voted for him were dedicated conservatives.


What Reagan had was a clear, coherent and believable
message. Even voters who did not agree with him 100
- percent could respect that and prefer it to the alternative.
He didn't have to offer earmarked goodies to each
special group, in order to get their votes. Pandering can
I gain you some votes but lose you many others.
After the tragic murders and attempted murders in
Tucson, some Democrats and the media have promoted
the notion that sharp political criticism somehow provoked
the shootings. There is not a speck of evidence to support
that notion.
Such evidence as there is points in the opposite
Direction, because the individual charged with the crime
did not follow talk radio or Sarah Palin.
This same political game was played after the
assassination of President John F. Kennedy, which was
blamed on the "hostile" conservative atmosphere in Dallas.
But the atmosphere in Dallas did not killJFK. A bullet
from a far-left kook killed him.
The criticism-causes-violence notion plays right into
the hands of those Democrats who have done outrageous
things in Washington, and who now insulate themselves
from the outrage they provoked by equating strong
criticism with fomenting violence.
Apparently some moderate Republicans don't realize
that you can't buy your opponents' assumptions and then
try to oppose the conclusions that follow.
Conservative talk-show host Michael Medved recently
criticized Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Dinesh
D'Souza for depicting Barack Obama as someone who
does not love this country, and who is deliberately doing
things to undermine it, at home and abroad. Medved


declared, "it's particularly unhelpful to focus on alleged
bad intentions and rotten character when every survey
shows more favorable views of his personality and policies."
Are public opinion polls the way to determine the truth?
If so, we can all outsource our thinking to Gallup and
Zogby.
Michael Medved also cites other presidents of the past,
whose errors or even sins did not mean that they were
unpatriotic. But does anyone seriously believe that this tells
us anything about Barack Obama, one way or the other?
Like some others, Michael Medved seems to think that
Obama's pragmatic desire to be re-elected means that
he is not an ideological extremist. But Hitler and Stalin
were pragmatic and that did not stop them from being
extremists.
Finally, there is the argument that Republicans will
have a harder time winning the next election if they are
"perceived as running against the presidency." But Rush
Limbaugh and Dinesh D'Souza are not running for office,
and it is not certain that Sarah Palin will be either.
And nobody is running against "the presidency." They
will be running against Barack Obama.
Are we not to consider a possibility with deep and
painful implications for the future of this nation, for such
feeble reasons as these? Or just because moderation is a
Good Thing?

Choosing Side
Family farmers and ranchers
are America's original and most
quintessential entrepreneurs. They are
the cornerstone of America's economy
and the wellspring of our nation's values.
And they are the stewards of rural
America's most beautiful landscapes.
Unfortunately, if you raise livestock
then you sell into a dysfunctional market
where packers hold all the cards and
routinely discriminate against smaller
farmers and ranchers by offering massive,
volume-based premiums to large,
industrial producers. That discriminatory
pricing has taken its toll.
In 1980 there were over 1.3 million
ranches and farms with cattle nationally.
Today, fewer than 950,000 are still
in operation. In 1980 there were over
666,000 hog farms but now fewer than
67,000 are in operation.
USDA has proposed reforms under the
Packers and Stockyards Act that instill
an element of fairness for family farmers
and ranchers in the livestock markets
they depend upon for economic survival.
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack


now must decide whether to proceed
with his proposed reforms. And that
means we all face a choice, to side with
farmers, ranchers and rural communities,
or, with the packers, National Pork
Producers Council and other proponents
of industrial livestock production.
If we want a future with thriving
family farms and ranches, vibrant rural
landscapes, quality food, and the chance
to realize the American dream, then
we must fight for it. The USDA's effort
to reform livestock markets and bolster
competition is a bold stand in defense of
that American dream, and is worthy of
our support.

my weakness: that our only hope is in God."
"In all my perplexities and distresses, the
Bible has neverfailed to give me light and

Fleebaggers: T1

and-Run Demc

By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

First lady Michelle Obama said, "Let's
Move!" Who knew Democratic politicians
in Wisconsin and Indiana would take her
literally?
Faced with stifling debt, bloated
pensions and intractable government
unions, liberal Midwestern legislators have
fled those states -- paralyzing Republican
fiscal reform efforts. Like Monty Python's
Brave Sir Robin and his band of quivering
knights, these elected officials have only
one plan when confronted with political
hardship or economic peril: Run away, run
away, run away.
Scores of Fleebagger Democrats are
now in hiding in neighboring Illinois,
the nation's sanctuary for political crooks
and corruptocrats. Soon, area hotels will
be announcing a special discount rate for
card-carrying FleePAC winter convention
registrants. Question: Will the White
House count the economic stimulus from
the mass Democratic exodus to Illinois as
jobs "saved" or "created"? More important
question: How much are taxpayers being
charged for these obstructionist vacations?
Voters have spoken: In Wisconsin,
Indiana, Ohio and across the heartland,
they put Republican adults in charge
of cleaning up profligate Democrat-
engineered messes. Instead of defending
their same old tax-hiking, union-
protecting, spending-addicted ways,
Democrats are crossing their state borders
into big government sanctuary zones --
screaming "la, la, la, we can't hear you" all
the way.
Wisconsin Democrats warned that
their delinquent members -- evading state
troopers and literally phoning it in -- could
be gone "for weeks" to prevent a quorum
on GOP Gov. Scott Walker's modest plan
to increase public union workers' health
insurance and pension contributions, end
the compulsory union dues racket and rein
in collective bargaining powers run amok.
Big Labor insists its intransigence isn't
about money, but about "rights." But the
dispute is about nothing but money and
power -- the union's power to dictate
and limit its members' health insurance
choices to a lucrative union-run plan, for
example, which adds nearly $70 million in
unnecessary taxpayer costs.
On Tuesday, only three of 40 House
Democrats in Indiana showed up for
legislative debate on a similar bill to end
forced unionism and join 22 other "right to
work" states. Hoosier media reported that
some of the fugitive pols may be headed to
Kentucky in addition to President Obama's
old political stomping grounds.
The White House and Beltway
J Democrats have paved the way for
subverting deliberative democracy, of
course. If only Republicans in Wisconsin
and Indiana had followed the Obama/
Pelosi/Reid model and rammed their
behind-closed-doors-crafted legislative
agenda through in the middle of the night
on a holiday weekend, the Fleebaggers
wouldn't be on the lam today. But GOP
legislators just don't roll that way. It's
Democrats who cut and run -- abroad in
wartime and at home in crisis.


he New Cut-

crats

Almost eight
years ago, more
than 50 Texas
Democratic
state lawmakers
holed up in
Oklahoma and 7.
New Mexico
for weeks to
stymie a vote
on Republican-
sponsored
redistricting plans they opposed. Over
the past week, it was thousands of public
school teachers in Wisconsin who faked
illness and boycotted their classrooms.
And it's union henchmen calling out loud
for statewide strikes to bring Republican
reformers to their knees.
The Party of Truancy has become a
laughingstock -- and Americans aren't
waiting for left-wing late-night comedians
to bring down the hammer of well-earned
mockery.nThe Internet has lit up over
the past week with "Wanted" posters
and all-points-bulletin alerts for missing
Democrats.
Blogger John Hayward of the
conservative Human Events newspaper
joked that "the next issue of National
Geographic will track the migratory
patterns of fugitive Democrats across
the great plains." Seton Motley of the
Washington, D.C.-based Media Research
Center weighed in: "First, Wisconsin.
Now, Indiana. When we said 'runaway
government,' it was a complaint -- not a
suggestion." ComedianStephen oKruiser
snickered that OFA --the Democrats'
political organizing arm, Organizing for
America -- now stands for "Organizing
Fleeing Americans."
Note: Many of the loudest Washington
and Hollywood critics of former Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin's decision to resign from
office in 2009 are themselves now AWOL
on the Wisconsin and Indiana AWOL-
ians. Who's all for mocking "quitters" now?
Anyone?
One mortified Wisconsin taxpayer
speaks for many. "As the daughter of
former Wisconsin Senate Minority Floor
Leader William R. Moser (D-Milwaukee,
Dist. 6)," Mary Magdalen Moser told me,
she's humiliated by the "flee-bagging"
politicians. "I am ashamed of the actions
taken by the minority party to subvert
our system of government by boycotting
its legitimate processes. Anarchy is
undemocratic, and I know that my Dad
is spinning in his grave right now. ... I do
not support refusing to participate, because
that will not solve any of the issues facing
our state."
Remember the 2008 Democratic Party
chant: "Fired up! Ready to go!" Well,
there's a new Democratic Party motto in
town: "Ready to go? OK, then, let's blow
this pop stand!" It's difficult to see how
Obama and his absconder allies can "win
the future" when they're stampeding over
each other to escape the present.

DAISYFRANCES FREEMAN
Daisy Frances
Freeman (Tewmey) 2
of Cedar Key, Fla.,
born Mar. 24, 1934, C
and formerly of
Gainesville, Fla.,

Just Preaching, or Telling


the Truth?


Just Preaching, or Telling the Truth?
My daughter Kailey has always been
picky about restaurants. When she was
little she figured they should either serve
milk, have a jukebox, or at least sport
some sort of live fish. The Chinese buffet
had made strides in her estimation with
the addition of their new shark tank, but
the Waffle House generally always topped
her list. I recall one early morning visit
there in particular when she was five.
I held her little hand tenderly as we
parted the low cloud of cigarette smoke
to our usual booth. The sizzle of bacon
and the clanging of the spatula nearly
drowned out the 'Waffle House Boogie'
which was seeping from the crusty ceiling
speakers. A long line of bedraggled
customers eyeballed us suspiciously from
the counter. Obviously we stood out;
being the only ones who'd been home
from the previous night.
We ordered and I, being a gung-ho
new Christian, set out to teach Kailey


because you hadn't tasted HERS!) Her plants,
from cuttings she shared, are strewn all over the
south, and the bouquets she took to church almost
weekly will always be remembered. She was a
member of the Morriston Church of Christ and
is survived by one dear childhood friend there,
Nettie Mae Brewington. Her favorite thing apart
from fishing, was to read little golden books to her
grandchildren, while swinging on the front porch,
or playing rummy with Mrs. Voncille Cribbs,
(late ofWilliston). She LIVED; she did not just
exist...
Many will remember her as their Levy County
school bus driver; she later retired from Lowell
Prison System. She was a cervical cancer survivor
of about 50 years.
Ms. Ruby's graduation to glory leaves change
in her wake, for she ends a generation of pioneers
for her family, a pivot point, who will be a hard act
to follow.
The family received friends at Ms. Ruby's home
on Wednesday evening. There was a graveside
funeral with viewing, visiting and sharing at
Plummer Cemetery in Montbrook at 11 a.m.,
Thursday, February 24, 2011.
Arrangements were placed under the care of
Knauff Funeral Home-Williston.

rwv Wild Oranges and a Grand Piano


ears ago David Meeks, Sr. showed me where
wild oranges" grow down along the Main Line,
the old Tram Road through Gulf Hammock.
Y He's gone on ahead now, as we say, but in
those days David Meeks owned and governed that rocky
patch of ground on which the rustic cabins of the Rocky
Bottom hunting camp sit. Good camps have good stories.
These sour oranges, too tart to the tongue for eating,
made a great marinade for wild game. They also made an
appetizer for a good story.
I asked Uncle David how he thought those orange trees
got there. He nodded back to the old tram line and said
that he suspected loggers early in that century often rode
the railcars out atop the massive logs. He speculated they
may have peeled oranges as they rumbled by. Maybe the
pulp and seed got tossed or spat to the fecund wetland
where we stood. That was his guess. Since the slough there
wasn't fit for a homestead, his explanation seemed as good
as any.
Later that night by the fire, I wanted to know more
about the tramline, the times and ways in which Gulf
Hammock was first cut. Deep in the rich history of
the place, I learned that the original Gulf Hammock
settlement was located in the vicinity of the old John
Yearty place farther south. A school house stood there,
David's brother "Uncle Buck" told me, along with a small
general store and post office.
By 1913 the Atlantic Coastline Railroad had been built

down the West Coast. The settlement relocated to the
line, nearer to the present site of the Gulf Hammock Post
Office. There's a boarded-up Circle K at the intersection
and nothing else now but the yellow caution light blinking
lazily over US 19.
Back behind that intersection, the relocated settlement
of Gulf Hammock was established. They called it
Gunntown in the early 1920s, the name celebrating a Mr.
Gunn whose vision it was to build a crate mill for bean
and lettuce hampers. By 1926 the settlement had become
a thriving little mill community.
The name was changed back to Gulf Hammock when
Dr. E.W. Grove invested with the Dowling brothers to
buy Gulf Hammock from Gunn. This deal constituted a
purchase of 132,000 acres, more or less, and ranged from
the Cedar Key trestle to the Suwannee River. Somewhere
near Chiefland, the property line ran back south through
Otter Creek and on down to the Withlacoochee River. So
this included the entire west coast of Levy County from
Cedar Key down to Hodges Island offYankeetown.
Grove-Dowling added citrus crates to their production
and built a depot where Western Union operated. Later
one of the two telephones in Gulf Hammock was installed
there. The other was at the huge company commissary,
something of a Super Wal-Mart of its time.
Frankie Bullock pulled up to the fire where we sat
talking. He told more about the "Pat-Mc" days. It
was about 1930 that Grove-Dowling sold to Paterson-
Mclnnis. The Pat-Mc era included operations of the
crate mill, a saw mill and a planing mill, said to be one
of largest in the South at the time. The company built
homes, churches, a hospital, schools, a barbershop and an
extensive rail network that served the various enterprises.
Small houses were constructed and loaded by steam-
powered cranes onto flatbed cars to be transported to
logging locations out in the hammock. Some of the sites,
identified as Camp D and E, are used as camps today by
hunters. But back then, they were populated vith these
camp houses that could be relocated on down the line to
the next logging site.
The commissary had a train car, too. The "woods
commissary," as it was known, supplied the outlying logging
camps with hardware and dry goods. Mr. Frank Bullock,
Frankie's father, operated it for a time and sold canned goods
and produce to the hungry timber men. We speculated that
he might well have sold the oranges that gave rise to the feral
grove shown to me in the dusk of that day.
I learned later that several boarding houses and hotels
stood in the budding community of Gulf Hammock.
The most notable of the hotels was built by Grove the
Orange Blossom Hotel. It's said to have been a first-class
hotel then, located on the Wekiva Spring run. Much of
the town's social life revolved around the hotel's musical
presentations, popular dances and other social events.
Sweethearts promenaded on "the loop" around First

games on a diamond close


It seemed incredible and instructive, I thought, to
look beyond that fire and realize that deep within those
forested shadows lay the fractured foundations of a once
thriving, bustling community of over 1500 souls.
The next morning I drove down the Tram Road past
Liar's Oak. I came back around to County Road 326.
Some still call it "Hunter's Trail" that comes out of the
sand hills from the East and crosses between the Circle
K and the Gulf Hammock Post Office. Route 326 winds
westward from there down to the Waccasassa Marina
where another tramline once dumped cypress logs to raft
out the river behind an old steamer, the Helen Denham.
The sternwheeler tugged the rafts up to the Tilghman
cypress sawmill at Lukens, located lands' end of the
Cedar Key trestle. The ribs of the Helen Denham now lie
somewhere up in the tidal mudflats. Lukens is gone, too,
with hardly a trace.
I found a turnout near the banks of the Wikiva and
followed a trail down into continued on page 13

mankind! Suddenly she switched gears and gave me
a start. "Go tell em' bout Jesus daddy," She squeaked,
pointing at a booth full of big rough looking bikers. After
a quick study of the situation, I decided it was best to give
Kailey that quarter after all. "Here sweetheart," I smiled,
"Why don't you run play the 'Waffle House Shuffle' again
on the jukebox?"
Kailey wiped her milk mustache on her sleeve and took
off. I must admit, while she was gone I did a little Waffle
House shuffle of my own. "Lord, please let her forget
about those bikers by the time she gets back!" She didn't.
In fact, she came back with the quarter. "Here daddy, give
em' dis monies when you tell em' bout Jesus."
Five year olds! Do they never tire of ruining your good
sermons with their simplistic views of reality? Don't they
-understand simple concepts like, "Do as I say, not as I
do!"? Surely that's in the Bible somewhere?
But anyway- I was beginning to sweat by that point.
Looking into my big ole' sack full of Christian excuses
I whined, "I just don't feel led right now honey." Then,
to my shame, I added, "You go. It's your idea." She just
looked at me with those big blue eyes.
She'd forced me into a corner. So I did something
I didn't know I had in me. I went. Oh... don't get me
wrong, I went afraid. But I went. I don't exactly recall
what I said to those big bikers; something about Jesus. But
you know what? They didn't kill me or anything!
I may never know if my witness mattered to those bikers
that day, that's between them and God; but I believe it
mattered to Kailey. I know it mattered to the Lord. I
think I'm starting to see why He loves the little children
so much. (Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not
receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not
enter therein. Mark 10:15 KJV)
-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'tgo arguing with me. I know I'm right. You

FWC Proposes Increase


to Red Drum Bag Limit in


Northern Florida


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) on
Wednesday proposed a draft rule that would
raise the recreational daily red drum bag limit
from one fish to two per person in northern
Florida. In addition, the FWC is proposing
to create three regional management areas for
red drum and establish a statewide eight-fish
red drum daily vessel limit. The Commission
also intends to develop ways to modify the
red drum off-the-water possession limit.
"We've come a long way since the early
1990s, when red drum stocks were largely
depleted, but the management of red drum in
Florida is turning out to be a success story,"
said Commissioner Kathy Barco. "The
fishery is holding its own in southern Florida,
and numbers of red drum in northern parts
of the state are now at a point where it's safe
to give back some fish to anglers."
The FWC has strictly managed red drum
(also called redfish, channel bass and red
bass) for more than 20 years to help rebuild


overfished populations. A 2008 FWC stock
assessment indicates that annual management
goals for red drum are consistently being
exceeded in areas of northeastern and
northwestern Florida.
As a result, the FWC is proposing
establishment of three management areas
for red drum in Florida (which are the same
as established management areas for spotted
seatrout) to better target its management
approaches for this popular Florida fish. In
all waters in the northwest management
area (Escambia through Pasco counties) and
in the northeast management area (Flagler
through Nassau counties), the FWC proposal
would raise the daily recreational bag limit
for red drum from one fish to two. .
More information regarding the FWC's
red drum draft rule proposals is available
online at MyFWC.com/Commission, linked
from the Feb. 23-24 meeting agenda, and a
final public hearing on these rule proposals
will take place in April.

Heads UP Help for FCATs


As spring arrives, so do State
Assessments for Levy County students.
Soon our students will be taking the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT 2.0), the Comprehensive
English Language Learning Assessment
(CELLA), and the End-of-Course (EOC)
Algebra I Exam. I would like to take this
opportunity to remind parents of a few
important "parent involvement" guidelines
and tips.
First, parents can obtain fact sheets,
information, sample tests, and resources
by going to d rp I'-r H.i;. r and by
visiting the http://www.fldoe.org/aala
website. It is just as important for parents
to be informed as it is for our students. I
would like to encourage all parents and
guardians to visit these websites.
Parents can help increase student success
in school by promoting daily attendance,
encouraging their children to do well in
school, making sure their children have
a well-rounded diet, keeping up with
their children's progress, and making
sure that their children are well rested on
school days and especially on testing days.
Parents are also encouraged to meet with
their children's teachers throughout the
school year.
This year testing begins on March 1,
2011 with FCAT Writing administered
at Grades 4, 8, and 10. This test requires
students to write an essay in response to
a prompt. The FCAT Writing Test will
be administered on March 1, 2011, with
make-up days scheduled for March 2 and
3. English Language Learners (ESOL
students) will be taking the Comprehensive
English Language Learning Assessment
(CELLA) starting on March 7,2011.
The CELLA assesses students' skills in
Listening/Speaking, Reading and Writing.
FCAT Retake Exams in Reading and
Mathematics will begin on March 30,
2011 for juniors and seniors. Students
in Grades 3-10 will be taking FCAT
Reading, Mathematics, and Science during


the April 11-April 21 testing window.
You will need to check with your school's
Testing Coordinator or your child's teacher
to get a specific calendar of what is tested
each day beginning April 11 since students
in grades 3-10 must take different parts of
the test on di Fr, rr days.
New to assessment this year is CBT
or Computer-Based Testing. Students in
Grade 10 and students taking the FCAT
Mathematics Retake Exam will no longer
take a paper-pencil FCAT test, but will
take a computer-based FCAT Math test.
Students completing Algebra I course will
also take a computer-based End-of-Course
(EOC) Exam. The dates for District
Testing for computer-based exams are as
follows: FCAT Math Retakes will begin
on March 31, 2011; FCAT Math for
tenth grade will begin on April 13, 2011;
Algebra I EOC exams begin on May 16,
2011. A letter is being sent home to parents
informing them of specific information
and dates for Computer-Based Testing.
On test days it is important that
students are well rested and have a healthy
breakfast. It is critical for students to
arrive on time for school and to be dressed
comfortably. It is very important to note
that during testing students are NOT
PERMITTED to have any electronic
devices in their possession. Please help us
with this requirement by talking with your
child about NOT having their cell phone
or IPod with them at their desk during
the testing procedure. If the student has a
cell phone or electronic device at his desk
during testing, his test will be invalidated.
All rules will be explained to your child
before each test, but we would like to ask
for'parental assistance in enforcing the NO
cell phone policy.
If parents have questions or concerns,
I would encourage them to contact their
school Principal, Guidance Counselor or
Classroom Teacher.

Coordinator SchoolBoard ofLevy County


Bronson Elementary Students Honored

as Champions
Bronson Elementary students William Trudell
and Angel Cardounel were honored as Champions
of Character during an on-court presentation at the
University of Florida Women's Basketball game on
Sunday, February 27, 2011. These two students, along
with Hayleyjerrels, JarrettJarrels, KarleyJarrels,
Robert Duthill, Jeremy Richardson and Joseph Hintz
were named Champions of Character by Bronson
Elementary. These students have made great strides in
good behavior, setting an example for other students
on campus, as well as focusing on their schoolwork.
Each Champion of Character received a t-shirt
from the Women's Gator basketball team to wear
proudly. This is one of the opportunities made
available to us by the University of Florida, to help
motivate and encourage our students to strive to the
top! With opportunities like this, students are able to
see that good behavior creates positive experiences and
memories.
The faculty and staff at Bronson Elementary School
are very proud of these students, along with many
~.* other students who have been working hard to make
the right choices both on campus and on the bus. We
look forward to many more celebrations!

Springhouse Quilter's

News Trenton Quilt

Festival on March 12


Springhouse Quilters got the
New Year off to a big quilting
start for 2011 by holding several
training workshops for members in
January and February.
Several members joined together
for these workshops and made
quilts for their personal use and
to place in the upcoming quilt
festival. The workshops were
conducted by member teachers,
Terry Major and Christine
McGee, and they did a great job
in leading the members in making
two great quilts: one the block-
in-a-block and then the easy and
striking French Rose rag applique
quilt. Each quilt was unique
and different since the members
selected fabrics and colors of their
choice. The quilts were pieced
together during the workshops and


are now being quilred tobe given
away or placed in the Suwannee
Valley Quilt and Craft Festival.
Springhouse will be a featured
quilt group in the Trenton depot
plus they will have a gift shop in
the building adjoining the Gilchrist
County Journal on Main Street in
Trenton. Members have been busy
making hand-made gifts for the
gift shop. Please visit the gift shop
during the festival and just see
what is available.
The festival will begin at 9 a.m.
If you want unique gifts for special
events, visit the Springhouse Gift
Shop during the festival on Mar.
12 and also view all of the quilts
which will be available for viewing.
For additional information,
contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.

A big Thank You to those who
attended the Yankeetown-Inglis
Woman's Club Annual Chili Cook-
Off making it one of the best in years.

warm, it didn't stop the crowd from
enjoying the many varieties of chili
from members and the community.
Crock pots lined the walls as those
attending filled their bowls with
the tasty concoctions. By the end
of the day all the baked goods had
been sold, the craft table was almost
depleted and the crook pots emptied.
Like a well oiled machine the day
ran smoothly, thanks to chairperson
Jill Tinney and her crew who did a
fabulous job.
The winners were: 1st place--#7
Eleanor Berkley's "Slap Ya Mama"; a
tie for 2nd place--#16 Lynne Tate's
"Heart Healthy Antioxidant" and
#5 Marty Hilliard's "Withlacoochee
Chili"; and 3rd place--#15 Cori


Welbes' "Sweet Hot Rod Chili". To
add a little "spice" to the day, Lynne
Tate offered a challenge to those
tasting, "Guess the fruit used in her
chili and win $10". For those who
tasted and offered a guess, it was
black cherries and Frances Kelly was
the winner. She graciously donated
her winnings to the Club.
Nancy Lou Miller has been selling
raffle tickets since November for a
chance to win a stuffed Aslan the
Lion from The Chronicles of Narnia.
The proceeds from this raffle will go
toward scholarships awarded in May.
Jennifer from Our Pub was the lucky
winner and Nancy Lou delivered
Aslan personally.
Another treat was the chance to
buy tickets for a quilt by Helen Siegel.
In years past, Helen donated many of
her handmade quilts for fundraising
raffles at the Woman's Club and
this year will be no different. We


were more than thrilled when
Helen's husband Darryl, generously
donated one of her coveted quilts to
raffle. Helen, a long time member
of the Woman's Club, was a master
quilter and known worldwide for
her hand quilted beauties. She was
recognized by AQS in American
Quilters Magazine as one of the top
24 quilters who have contributed to
quilting in America.
Her quilt "Trail Mix" was
completed in 2005 and is one of 150
or so that she completed in the 25
years she quilted. If you weren't able
to attend the Chili Cook-Off, plan
on attending the Salad Luncheon,
March 16th to get your chances for
this cherished quilt, which will be
on display. Tickets are $5.00 each
or 3 for $10.00 and will be available
during the Luncheon. Drawing will
be held at our Scholarship Awards
Luncheon, Wednesday, May 4th.

Log Cabin Quilters


2011 State Fair Quilt Winners


Winnelle Homrne with Log Cabin Heart
(red ribbon), Laura Fisher with Swans (red
ribbon), Peggy Williams with the Roses
quilt made by the Log Cabin Quilters that
she did embroidery work on (red ribbon);
Pat 0. with her Santa Christmas tree skirt


(red ribbon) and Cheep Housing quilt (Red
ribbon), Jannie Bicknell with her Butterfly
Garden (Red Ribbon) and Ailien Rikooi
with her Hoffman challenge wall hanging
(white ribbon).


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
February 24, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. We now have all the quilts and
crafts from the Fair. We brought home
17 ribbons out of 27 entries. We did so
good. It is a job each year but we enjoy it.
We have records of each year we've entered
quilts and one day we will see how many
we have done.
We had a great group with us today and
everyone had a good time. Much goes on
each week and so much can be learned. If
you want to learn to quilt, knit or crochet,
come on Thursday and someone will gladly


help you with your project.
Greg and seven boys were out Tuesday
and they got so much done. We are
starting to plant outside and next week
our quilt batting comes in from North
Carolina and they will cut it into assorted
sizes. Thanks Lancaster.
Thursday lunch was so good with
noodles and sauce, squash, peas, scalloped
potatoes, potato salad, pea salad, broccoli
salad, eggs, brownies, chocolate pie and so
much more.

emerald green and I followed it a ways.
If you don't think it possible for a town to disappear,

towering trumpet vine. A squirrel fused up in a water
oak. A boy hunter crossed below me and disappeared
toward where the baseball diamond would have
been. I lay back on the leafy bank and listened with a
sentimental ear for the lingering strains of a grand piano
from the top floor of a hotel in a town that isn't there
anymore.

CES Walk-Manias for March

of Dimes


By: Rene Moore and Kathy
Hilliard

Life is a very important issue at Chiefland
Elementary School and it was definitely
celebrated on Friday, Feb. 25th, when the
students put on their walking shoes to
participate in the March of Dimes Walk-
Mania Walk-a-thon.
Impassioned by their hard earned
donations from family and friends, these
students put their feet where their promises
were and walked the track to be able to give
to the March of Dimes and save the lives of
babies.
Kirsti Youmans, the Youth Development
Director for March of Dimes in North
Central Florida, started volunteering at the


age of 15 in her youth leadership council
in school. And she never stopped. She
said the week started with learning about
the mission and the goals of the March of
Dimes foundation.
The March of Dimes was really
started as the National Foundation for
Infantile Paralysis by President Franklin
D. Roosevelt to fight polio. President
Roosevelt suffered from polio and initiated
the foundation which funded research
for vaccine development by Jonas Salk,
MD and Albert Sabin, MD. With the
development of the vaccine and its great
success the mission marched on through
the March of Dimes to research and
prevention of premature birth and death,
and birth defects. The March of Dimes has


Last leg of the Walk-Mania almost there.


Old Florida Celebration of

the Arts 2011


Cedar Key, Florida
By Sandra Buckingham

If plain old curiosity hasn't yet inspired
you to visit the town selected by the
USDA as Florida's Rural Community of
the Year, then mark April 2nd and 3rd
on your calendar for an excursion to the
western terminus of State Route 24. That's
when you'll have the added incentive of
enjoying Cedar Key's annual Old Florida
Celebration of the Arts.
Unlike many art festivals and most craft
fairs, this one is juried to ensure original
artistry and fine craftsmanship. Over a
hundred artists chosen to participate this
year will compete for over $10,000 in
prize money and purchase awards. The
charming and Historic Second Street
will become a pedestrian-only mall for
this weekend event, both sides lined with
booths displaying art and fine crafts in
many different media oils, acrylics,
prints, jewelry, ceramics, photography,
stained glass, woodwork, sculpture, fiber
and textiles.
A few steps beyond the booths is City
Park, where children will have sidewalk
chalk art, face painting, a playground and
beach. You can listen to music in the park
while lunching on seafood and desserts
prepared and sold by local school, civic
and church organizations. You won't soon


forget the Garden Club's homemade-
from-scratch lemonade or Tony's World
Champion clam chowder.
The Old Florida Celebration of the
Arts is easy to find. Take State Route 24
(Archer Road) out of Gainesville and drive
southwest to the end of the road, about
60 miles. You can also pick up SR24 at
Archer, Bronson or Otter Creek if you are
coming from other directions. Aviation
buffs can even fly here (www.airnav.
com/airport/KCDK), as long as they can
land and take off with about 2000 feet of
runway.

and surrounding area, accommodation,
facilities, attractions, artists and all
aspects of the festival can be found on the

contributed to a system of neonatal
intensive care for premature and
sick babies, prenatal care, and
after birth care thereby saving and
strengthening the lives of thousands
of future Walk-Mania Walk-a-thon
participants.
The students learned all about
premature babies and the obstacles
they encounter as a result. They
talked about the effect on the
families and the causes for
premature births. Then they took
their newly-acquired knowledge
and infectious zeal and spread the
news to others in their realm as they
gathered their donations to help the
babies.
According to Youmans and Robin
Hardee, Chiefland Elementary
has been the highest fundraiser for
the past 3 years for all of Alachua,
Gilchrist, Levy, and Dixie counties
and has been a longtime supporter
of the Walk-Mania program.


Their donations will go to the
March of Dimes programs to help
with education, support, community
service support, advances in
equipment and research, and
advocacy work with lawmakers to
support mothers and babies.
The culmination of the week-long
program was walking. And walk
they did as proud contributors to
saving lives of babies everywhere.
Robin Hardee said, "It's wonderful
to see 2nd and 3rd generations of
students out doing this, as well as
the parents contributing. It shows
the impact the program has on the
schools."
Not only is March of Dimes
contributing to stronger, healthier
babies, it is also uniting our local
children to their community in a
common cause that is beneficial to
us all. Thanks CES students and
parents. Levy County appreciates it.
