Spring Forward!
Most of the United States begins Daylight Saving Time at 2:00 a.m.
on the second Sunday in March and reverts to standard time on the
first Sunday in November. In the U.S., clocks change at 2:00 a.m. local
time. In spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59 a.m. to 3:00 a.m.; in
fall, clocks fall back from 1:59 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.
So, late Saturday or early Sunday, set your clocks forward. Don't
forget to check your smoke alarms as well.

Incumbents Lose in

Williston City Election


In election news Tuesday, March 1, former city
attorney Norm Fugate ousted incumbent Steve
Holcomb for a seat on the Williston City Council,
while candidate Jerry Robinson unseated incumbent
Debra Jones. Fugate resigned his position of City
Attorney for Williston on January 4 to run for
Holcomb's seat on the council. Jones was vice-
president of the council at the time of the election.
Both candidates called the election a mandate for a
change in the direction of the city council.
A breakdown of the results follows:


Group "A" Absentee Ballots
Norm Fugate 26 267
Steve Holcomb 16 139


Total Votes
293
155


Group "C"
Debra Jones
Jerry Robinson


Absentee Ballots


Total Votes
159
278


According to Interim City Clerk Nan Mack,
there were three provisional ballots cast. The
canvassing board counted only one provisional
ballot. A provisional ballot is provided to anyone
showing up to vote but is not shown on county
records. After the supervisor of elections reviews
residency and other records, ballots are included or
excluded, based on the results of that review.
Robinson and Fugate will be sworn into their new
offices April 12, 2011. The city charter requires the
swearing-in be conducted the second Tuesday of
April after the election.


The "Found Photo" in the issue afew weeks ago says that the
woman hitting the ball is ConnieAsbell according to Claude
Blackburn vol. 87, no 35 March 3, 2011. It looks to me like
it is Beth Davis, SchoolBoardMember. That was a rally in
the south Levy area for all of the candidates in the '08 election
and they had them play a softballgame.

Davis confirmed this week that it is, indeed, her pictured in the photograph.)

Williston Arrests
Myrick Marshall, Jr., 21, ofWilliston was arrested March
3 in the 4000 block of NE 212 Court after a vehicle
he was driving was stopped for dark window tint.
The driver was not the owner of the vehicle, but he
could not produce a driver's license. The investigator
discovered that the driver's license had been suspended
and the driver knew about the suspension. Marshall
was arrested and processed for driving while license
suspended or revoked knowingly, and then taken to the
Levy CountyJail.
Scott Cunningham, 54, of Morriston was arrested on
March 4 after the vehicle he was driving was stopped
by Williston Police for no tag light. The deputy noticed
a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle,
which was found along with a glass pipe. Cunningham
was arrested for possession of cannabis less than 20
grams and issued a citation.
Wayne Wilson, 43, of Williston was arrested March 5 after
driving his vehicle to a parking lot of an establishment
located in a high narcotics area ofWilliston. As an
officer approached the vehicle, the driver attempted to
drive out of the property. The driver told the officer he
was giving friends rides for money, but he was unable
to provide their names. The officer's suspicion aroused,
the driver was asked if there were illegal drugs in
the vehicle, and found a bag of what appeared to be
marijuana. After the driver was asked to exit the vehicle,
a search revealed other drug paraphernalia. Wilson
was arrested and charged with possession of cocaine,
possession of marijuana less than 20 grams, possession
of drug paraphernalia and driving while license
suspended or revoked. Wilson was transported to the
Levy County Jail.


Basic Rules for Safe Gun Handling $


1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction
means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go
off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this
rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the
barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the
safest direction, depending on different circumstances.
2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until
ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger .. i
guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually
ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to
use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and,
if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the
chambers) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the
I action or inspect the chamberss, leave the gun alone and


get help from someone who does.

Is Democracy Viable?


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

Those who see hope in f
the Middle East uprisings
seem to assume that they .
will lead in the direction
of freedom or democracy.
There is already talk about
the "liberation" of Egypt,
even though the biggest
change there has been that
a one-man dictatorship has .
been replaced by a military
dictatorship that has
suspended the constitution.
Perhaps the military
dictatorship will be temporary, as its leaders say, but we
have heard that song before. What we have also heard, too
many times before, is the assumption that getting rid of an
undemocratic government means that it will be replaced by
a freer and better government.
History says otherwise. After Russia's czars were
replaced by the Communists, the government executed
more people in a day than the czars had executed in half
a century. It was much the same story in Cuba, when the
Batista regime was replaced by Castro and in Iran when
the Shah was replaced by the Ayatollahs.
It is not inevitable that bad regimes are replaced by
worse regimes. But it has happened too often for us to
blithely assume that overthrowing a dictator means a
movement toward freedom and democracy.
The fact that Egyptians or others in the Middle East


"Collectively" Bad


By Howard Rich

A decade ago, when our national debt
stood at a "mere" $5.6 trillion, the federal
government was already dramatically
overpaying its employees to perform all
sorts of non-core functions.
According to the U.S. Bureau of
Economic Analysis, compensation for the
average federal position in 2000 exceeded
compensation for the average private
sector job by $30,415 a sizable gap that
has since exploded to $61,998. Now the
average federal employee's compensation
totals $123,409 or more than twice the
average private sector salary.
Federal workers have seen their total
compensation soar by 36.9 percent since
2000 after adjusting for inflation. By
comparison, private sector compensation
has increased by only 8.8 percent.
Also, in spite of a recession that saw
the loss of 8 million private sector jobs
there are more federal employees working
today 2.15 million than ever before.
In addition to generous salaries, health
care coverage and inflation-protected
pensions, public sector employees also
receive more vacation time, holidays
and sick days than their private sector
counterparts.
Needless to say, federal workers have
secured much of this largesse thanks
to collective bargaining. The same can
be said of public school teachers in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin where the
average compensation package was
recently valued at $100,005.
But public sector collective bargaining
isn't your typical collective bargaining. In
fact, it represents an unnatural perversion
of a failed private sector experiment
- an unfair tactic that continues to be
exploited to the detriment of taxpayers.
In fact, only now that a line has been
drawn in the sand in Wisconsin (one of
dozens of states struggling to balance its
budget due to the stranglehold of public
sector unions) do we see the true cost to
taxpayers coming into focus.
In the private sector, collective
bargaining is ostensibly driven by market
forces. Both workers and managers rely
on profits, and so negotiations are (in
theory, anyway) conducted with the goal
of creating a larger pie for everyone to
share. Obviously, this hasn't been the
objective of union bosses, which is why
the free market has largely weeded their
unions out of the economy.
Currently only 7.2 percent of America's
private sector workforce is unionized -
down from a World War II-era peak of
33.9 percent. This trend is reversed in the

and elsewhere want freedom does not mean that they are
ready for freedom. Everyone wants freedom for himself
Even the Nazis wanted to be free to be Nazis. They just
didn't want anybody else to be free.
There is very little sign of tolerance in the Middle East,
even among fellow Muslims with different political or
religious views, and all too many signs of gross intolerance
toward people who are not Muslims.
Freedom and democracy cannot be simply conferred on
anyone. Both have preconditions, and even nations that are
free and democratic today took centuries to get there.
If there was ever a time when people in Western
democracies might be excused for thinking that Western
institutions could simply be exported to other nations to
create new free democracies, that time has long passed.
It is easy to export the outward symbols of democracy--
constitutions, elections, parliaments and the like-- but you
cannot export the centuries of experience and development
that made those institutions work. All too often, exported
democratic institutions have meant "one man, one vote--
one time."
We should not assume that our own freedom and
democratic form of government can be taken for granted.
Those who created this country did not.
As the Constitution of the United States was being
written, a lady asked Benjamin Franklin what he and
the other writers were creating. He replied, "A republic,
madam-- if you can keep it." Generations later, Abraham
Lincoln also posed it as a question whether "government
of the people, by the people and for the people" is one that
"can long endure."


public sector, however, where unions now
comprise 36.8 percent of the workforce -
up from 9.8 percent in the 1940s.

Why this dichotomy? One reason is
that collective bargaining in the public
sector is a self-perpetuating process -
one that is rigged to continue funneling
benefits to workers regardless of whether
those benefits are deserved (or whether
the work being performed by these
employees is even necessary).
For example, not only is government
in charge of regulating its interaction
with the private sector but unlike
the private sector, it is funded by a
compulsory revenue stream. And with
no balanced budget requirement at
the federal level, politicians act as if
there is a limitless supply of tax dollars
with which to continue feeding union
demands. Meanwhile state governments
continue to be bailed out by the federal
government's borrowed billions -
dumping disproportionate percentages
of this money into generous employee
salaries and benefits while complaining
when core services go unfunded.
Also the structure of collective
bargaining in the public sector is
fundamentally out-of-balance which
invariably results in unions being
represented on both sides of the
negotiating table. Not only are union
demands voiced by their immediate
representatives, they are echoed by
numerous bought and paid for politicians
(who are supposed to be negotiating on
behalf of the taxpayers). Even politicians
who are not in the pocket of unions
are subject to the political pressure this
uniquely powerful special interest can
apply.
Obviously the money extracted during
this perverse "bargaining" process must
come from somewhere a reality that
even supporters of big government are
beginning to acknowledge.
"Collective bargaining in the public
sector serves to reduce benefits for
citizens and to raise costs for taxpayers,"
writes David C. Crane, a Democrat
who serves on the California Board of
Regents.
That is the true war being fought
in Wisconsin and make no mistake
that its outcome will go a long way in
determining whether government at
all levels rids itself of this menace or
becomes even more hopelessly enslaved to
its demands.

Just as there are nations who have not yet developed the
preconditions for freedom and democracy, so there are
some people within a nation who have not. The advance
toward universal suffrage took place slowly and in stages.
Too many people, looking back today, see that as just
being biased against some people.
But putting the fate of a nation in the hands of the
illiterate masses of the past, many with no conception of
the complexities of government, might have meant risking
the same fate of "one man, one vote-- one time."
Today, we take universal literacy for granted. But
literacy has not been universal, across all segments of
the American population during all of the 20th century.
Illiteracy was the norm in Albania as recently as the 1920s
and in India in the second half of the 20th century.
Bare literacy is just one of the things needed to
make democracy viable. Without a sense of responsible
citizenship, voters can elect leaders who are not merely
incompetent or corrupt, but even leaders with contempt for
the Constitutional limitations on government power that
preserve the people's freedom.
We already have such a leader in the White House--
and a succession of such leaders may demonstrate that the
viability of freedom and democracy can by no means be
taken for granted here.

Teachers Unions 101:

"A" is for "Agitation"


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

If public school teachers spent more
time teaching in classrooms and less time
community-organizing in political war
rooms, maybe taxpayers wouldn't feel as
ripped off as they do. Before the Big Labor
bosses start complaining about "teacher-
bashing," let's be clear: An increasing
number of rank-and-file teachers feel
exactly the same way.
Retired New York teacher Vinne
Cusimano, who was required to pay
forced union dues in order to work, wrote
me this week after receiving the March
2011 edition of his union's monthly
publication. The cover of the New
York State United Teachers (NYSUT)
magazine reads: "Defend What Matters!
Educate. Collaborate. AGITATE."
Inside the pamphlet, NYSUT President
Richard Iannuzzi rails against "malicious
politicians" in Wisconsin and elsewhere
proposing "extreme anti-union" budget
cuts. He urges his members to join
"advocacy" efforts to "maintain critical
resources" and lectures about the need to
"value education over ideology and greed."
Cusimano, who taught for four decades
in the Empire State, fired back at Ianuzzi
in an open letter:
"As a member for over 40 years, I
have never been so disappointed at the
stand you are taking to call members
to 'AGITATE!' We are trying to tamp
down the rhetoric and you are outward(ly)
inciting agitation. How dare you! You are
supposed to be for the students/teachers.
... How can you support 'EDUCATE,'
'COLLABORATE,' and then encourage
agitation?"
More to the point, what business does
lannuzzi -- a fat-cat union official who
rakes in nearly $300,000 a year (plus a
$100,000 pension) while his organization's
net assets are more than $117 million in
the red -- have lecturing anyone else about
"ideology and greed"? Instead of imposing
fiscal discipline on NYSUT, lannuzzi
and his cronies have gone on a spending
spree -- dumping nearly $10.5 million into
left-wing Democratic politics this past
year alone. The NYSUT boasts a lobbying
staff of 500, a 200,000-square-foot palace
in Albany and a $213 million operating
budget -- paid for through compulsory
union dues of about $300 a year from some
600,000 members.
"Agitation," of course, is a full-time job
for teachers union officials in New York
and across the country. As the New York
Post reported exclusively this week, the
city Department of Education compensates
some 1,500 teachers for their union
activities and also subsidizes other teachers
who take their places in the classroom: "It's
a sweetheart deal that costs taxpayers an
extra $9 million a year to pay fill-ins for
instructors who are sprung -- at full pay --
to carry out responsibilities for the United


Federation of
Teachers."
The UFT
soldiers
"collect top
pay and fringe
benefits, but
work just one
class period
a day." Nice
non-work if i
you can get it.
NYSUT, by the way, is the parent of the
double-dipping UFT, which itself rakes in
$126 million in member dues -- but only
reimburses the city less than $1 million out
of the $9 million it costs to take teachers
out of the classroom to serve at the altar
of Big Labor. UFT is also a chapter of
the American Federation of Teachers
(AFT), which spent nearly $2 million on
the election of President Barack Obama
in 2008. (In return, you may recall, the
Obama administration granted the UFT
one of its coveted health care Waivers for
Favors last year -- exempting the behemoth
union in a sweetheart deal from the federal
mandate's costly rules on phasing out
annual health coverage limits.)
The forced-dues racket is big business
for teachers unions crying poor. In Ohio,
the state's education association siphoned
nearly $23 million from rank-and-file
school workers to fatten up its union staff.
The Ohio Education Association donated
more than $1.6 million to Democratic
campaigns last year and tossed offfive-
figure checks each to union and progressive
allies in Oregon, Colorado and Policy
Matters Ohio, a left-wing think tank
funded by radical billionaire George Soros.
At the federal level, the National
Education Association squandered $13
million in teachers' dues on every pet
liberal cause and crony from the AFL-CIO
($150,000) and AFSCME ($90,000), to
the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the
United States Senate ($200,000), Media
Matters for America ($100,000) and the
White House brigade at Health Care for
America Now! ($450,000).
The goals of the teachers union machine
are not academic excellence, professional
development and fairness. As former NEA
official John Lloyd explained it: "You
cannot possibly understand NEA without
understanding Saul Alinsky. If you want to
understand NEA, go to the library and get
'Rules for Radicals.'"
The goals are student indoctrination,
social upheaval and perpetual agitation in
pursuit of bigger government and spending
without restraint. No wonder the signature
"solidarity" color of the teachers union
protests this month is red.

I don't know why it seemed so fun
hurling those big dirt clods at my
grandpa. It just was. I mean... I didn't
think one would actually ever hit him.
That would be stupid. Though he was up
in age, Papa was as big as a bear, and I
knew from experience he could still tree
a little sprout like me. Maybe it was just
the heat and boredom of another lazy
Mississippi delta morning.
At first Papa sat atop his old Case
tractor plowing up the forty acres
without even noticing me. My throws
were coming up woefully short. Yet each
time he worked a row down to the bayou
he'd end up coming back a little bit more
within range. Eventually I ricocheted
one off his hood. "Boy! You stop a
throwing them clods. You hit me and
I'm a gonna get you!" he yelled. His big
bushy eyebrows were cocked at full arch,
warning of his propensity to lose that
Italian temper. I just smiled and waved,
and like a complete idiot, went back to
chunking.
Of course it wasn't long till I came
across the clod that will forever haunt
my childhood memories. Papa let loose
with a thunderous roar as it slapped
him in the face. He jumped off the
tractor whilst it was still rolling. There
was fire in his eyes! He un-slung his
big belt in mid-stride. Everything in
me cried, "Run!" I believe even Papa
hoped I would too, because he growled,
"You better run der boy!" Yet my legs
just stood there quaking. I guess they
couldn't hear my brain's instructions
for all the clanking my knees were
making. Whatever the reason, I just
froze. Shortly thereafter commenced a
whooping which literally brought the
traffic to a standstill on the 61 hwy.
Sure, flirting with disaster can be a
lot of fun, at least while you're still in
the flirting stage. But let me tell you, all
that changes once Papa jumps off the
tractor. Many people have since asked
me, "What were you thinking?" I don't
know. In hind sight, I wasn't. However,
before you go casting clods at me, let
me ask you a question, "Are you doing
the same thing on a grander scale? Are
you throwing clods at God?" Have you
been one to consider the splendor of
the heavens and the earth and all of
God's creation and yet still refuse to
acknowledge Him? Ouch! That must

But Anyway...
with Guy Sheffield
seem like a dirty slap in the face to the
One who gave you that brain and the
free will to choose not to use it. Have
you heard how God sent His Son Jesus
to die a brutal death on the cross to pay
your penalty, and still you reject His
love? Maybe there're a few things you
haven't really thought out yourself.
Thankfully God is a lot more patient
than Papa. (The Lord is not slack
concerning his promise, as some men
count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should
perish, but that all should come to
repentance. 2 Peter 3:9 KJV) One day
though, I can assure you, God will say,
"Enough is enough." He will come down
off His tractor and settle all scores. The
Bible says His eyes will be like a flame of
fire that day.
I don't know about you, but I've
learned my lesson. I'm not planning on
being one of those riding against Him
that day. Why don't you plan likewise,
and come on over here to the winning
side? Can't you see God's mercy is crying
out to you yet again? The Lord has
stayed on the throne and patiently taken
all the dirt that you've thrown at Him,
yet He still extends His hand of peace
toward you again. Why would you refuse
Him?
But anyway- I guess what I am trying
to say is, "Though God is merciful, He's
also JUST." Please don't go on flirting
with eternity. Throw down the clods and
make peace with Him before it's too late.

Illustration by Alexander Key
A while back I told of the old Seminole chief
Cowkeeper who crops up quite often in the
Florida experience of the 1700s. Cowkeeper's
hospitable welcome of William Bartram at
his village on the Alachua Savannah (Payne's Prairie, as
we know it today) reminded me of yet another curious
incident in which the wizened old chief took part.
One of the wackiest wars in history as I've seen it put
- arose out of a series of conflicts between the Spanish and
English forces vying for sovereignty in the New World.
To enforce the trade laws of an existing treaty, the Spanish
had the equivalent of a coast guard in their American
waters. Smuggling of trade goods was rampant on both
sides, of course, with violations occurring in British as
well as Spanish territories. The more aggressive Spanish
navy, however, began to harass British merchantmen by
confiscating their cargoes and perpetrating occasional
acts of cruelty against the British ships' crews. It was an
occurrence of this nature that led to the infamous Rebecca
incident.
On April 9, 1731, the Spanish sloop San Antoni
commanded by Juan Francisco, intercepted the British
merchant brig Rebecca in the Florida Straits. According
to the Spanish, the Rebecca's logs and cargo didn't match
up. This discrepancy led to accusations of treaty and
trade law violations. British captain Robert Jenkins was
indignant. He evidently insulted the Spanish captain,
accusing him of outright piracy against the Rebecca.
In fierce response, Francisco drew his sword and
unceremoniously cut off one of Jenkins' ears!
Some months later, Captain Jenkins was ordered back
to London to appear before the British Parliament and
recount his version of the incident. Jenkins gave a rousing
performance with use of a most unsavory visual aid. The
right honorable House of Commons members drew back
in abject horror when the salty English captain suddenly
produced his severed ear. Jenkins announced then in a
booming voice that the Spanish Captain, Francisco, had
boasted: "Were the King of England here, 1 would do the
same for him!"


The War of


Jenkins Ear

Well, that was quite enough. The Rebecca Incident was
riotously proclaimed to be an insult to the honor of Great
Britain: "A clear casus belli!" (cause for war) shouted one
member with such fury that his powdered wig fell askew.
So began the War ofJenkins Ear in which the British
siege of St. Augustine would occur in May 1740.
In that siege, Governor Oglethorpe of the colony of
Georgia raised an odd force of British regulars, the 'Old'
42nd Regiment of Foot, which mustered with colonial
militia from Georgia and Carolina. Added to these
numbers were the kilted Hugh MacKaye's Highlanders
behind bagpipes and a number of allied Indian tribes.
Among the latter were Cowkeeper and his warriors,
reputed to be the fiercest of all.
Never mind that the British siege of Castillo de San
Marcos at St. Augustine didn't succeed, Cowkeeper won
honor and prestige before the war fizzled out a few sea
skirmishes later. Or perhaps more accurately, the War of
Jenkins Ear became absorbed into the King George's War,
but that's another story. In any case, Cowkeeper had only
whetted his thirst for killing the Spanish.
In a rather haunting footnote to the War ofJenkins Ear,
Cowkeeper claimed on his deathbed that his happiness
in the afterlife depended on the fulfillment of his vision
to kill 100 Spaniards. The British had held Florida by
then, but in yet another treaty swap, Florida was to be
ceded back to Spain (1783). Cowkeeper saw a chance to
revitalize his war campaign to achieve everlasting bliss in
the hereafter. Although by this time an old man, he was
actually organizing a war party to attack St. Augustine
again when he suddenly fell deathly ill. Certain now that
his end was near, the aged chief summoned his sons Payne
and Bowlegs to his side. Cowkeeper recounted his vision
and its significance. On his deathbed he confessed to
killing only 86 Spaniards. So he prevailed on his sons to
kill 14 more in his name.
As certainly as crusty Captain Jenkins of the Rebecca
had lost his ear, Cowkeeper soon thereafter departed this
world for the next satisfied he would pass through the
golden glades of the Alachua Savannah to find his happy
hunting ground.

Shark News


Baseball
The Cedar Key Sharks were defeated
by Seven Rivers Christian 26 to 5. CJ
Parks, Kit Riley, and Brandon and Bradley
Register scored four runs in the 1st inning.
Bradley Register had both a 2nd and 3rd
base hit in the 1st and 4th inning and,
due to an RBI, the team was awarded two
points. Bradley Register was brought home
by CJ Parks in the 2nd and 4th inning.
CJ Parks said "We didn't win but the
boys played hard. Next game we will
definitely put our teamwork into action and
hopefully win."
The Baseball team started out the season
with a loss against the Oak Hall Eagles.


The final score of the evening was 21 Oak
Hall and 1 Cedar Key. TJ Jackson scored
the one point with a sacrificed hit from
Tyler Sloan.
Coach Joe said "I am proud of the team;
it's not all about winning. They did not
give up and they played hard and had good
sportsmanship. I told the team at the first
practice that winners never quit no matter
how many points that they may be down.
They played hard until the end and it
makes me proud to be a Shark."

In Fall of 2003, a Levy County Journal Staffer discovered a white box full of
photographs that may or may not have run in earlier editions of the newspaper. The
box was unmarked, and the photographs remain unidentified and unclaimed.Hence
the name of a new feature: Found Photo. We ask our readers to take a look and see
if they can identify the folks in the photo, as well as the story behind it.

Teachers Dress Up to Motivate

BES Students for FCATS


Bronson Elementary School teachers
and School Board of Levy County
Director of Curriculum, Dr. Patrick Wnek,
helped motivate 4th grade students with
a humorous skit the day before they took
the FCAT writes assessment. Dr. Wnek
acted as a talk show host, welcoming the
different "special guests" to pump up the
crowd of 4th grade students. Teachers
dressed and acted as impersonators
of Taylor Swift, Hannah Montana,
Tim Tebow, Justin Beiber, Spongebob
Squarepants, John Cena, Captain
Underpants, and Wimpy from the book
Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Throughout the
skit teachers made the students laugh with
humorous jokes, as well as encouraged
students to do their best and get a good
night's sleep prior to their writing test. As
the teacher impersonating Tim Tebow
said, "'These students have been practicing
for this test since their first day of school.
--


They are ready!"
The students at Bronson Elementary
are lucky to have such dedicated teachers
who care about their future! By showing
the students that it's ok to laugh and have
a good time, the students realized just
how proud their teachers are of them.
Additionally, the students realized that
teachers like to have a lot of fun also!
There is always a time and place for fun
and humor, just as there is a time and place
for seriousness. This skit was the time to
have a little fun with the students and get
them pumped up for their FCAT writes
test! In addition to the skit, the 4th grade
teachers and students received notes of
encouragement, posters to show support,
and words of encouragement from many
different faculty and staff members on
campus. It's very rewarding to see the
smiles and level of confidence increase
within each student, just by knowing
:. .that the entire
school was
behind them,

them, and ready
to see them
succeed!
-Caryl
M. Carlisle,
Reading Coach
BES


Cast of Characters for BES' funny but motivational skit included Cheryl Beauchamp as
Spongebob, Dr. Wnek as the host, and Ms. Sara McCann as Captain Underpants.

Pre-school Storytime

These programs use books and music to present
young children with the concept that books, reading,
and libraries are fun and enjoyed at all ages. The
programs last 30 minutes.


(NAPS)-Are you struggling with a problem lawn
and yard? Are the weeds growing but the grass isn't?
Maybe you're embarrassed by patchy grass and an
overgrown landscape. If so, it may be time for a yard care
intervention, and a chance to grow your confidence and a
better-looking lawn and landscape.
This spring and summer, the Briggs & Stratton Yard
Doctor will roll up his sleeves and help homeowners
confront their yard care demons, bringing three of
America's neediest yards back into their neighborhoods'
good graces. Yard Doctor Trey Rogers and his team
will spend a day providing advice and hands-on help to
transform the winning homeowners' yards into points of
pride.
In addition to a yard makeover, the winners will
receive new lawn care equipment and $1,500 in landscape
cash. To enter, visit www. yardsmartsintervention.com.
Homeowners can apply for an intervention for themselves
or (with permission) they can call out a neighbor, family
member or friend in need of help. Each "application"
should explain the yard care problems faced and why an
intervention is needed, using either a short video or up to
four photos to show the yard.
One yard will be selected each month from May
through July by online voting. Runners-up each month
receive cool Yard Smarts gear and a signed copy of the
Yard Doctor's book on growing the perfect lawn.
Rogers, who has helped homeowners across the country
bring their yards back under control, has the following
tips:

Eliminate yard clutter. Pick up and put away kids'
bicycles, balls, lawn furniture, garbage cans and other
clutter.
Mow correctly for a lush lawn. When you mow, cut
only one-third of the height of the lawn to encourage
strong roots. Cutting too short stresses the lawn,
creating an environment ideal for weed growth and.
disease.
Be sure to trim. Mowing your lawn without trimming
is like getting half a haircut. String trim around
flowerbeds, sidewalks and decks.
Eliminate overgrowth. Trim back or replace overgrown

Edward Michaels,
facilitator for the AF
Knotts Friends of the
Library (FoL) Bathroom
Project, headed up a team
to demolish the former
library lavatories in order to
upgrade to a handicapped-
accessible unisex restroom
that meets all state and local
codes.
The project is being
funded by Friends of AF
Knotts Public Library
and the Yankeetown-
Inglis Woman's Club
with generous community
support. To view more

This bowtie crazy quilt was made with fabric sacks from the 1920s.


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
March 4 at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. What a great day we had with
so much going on. We had fabric and
books that had been brought in which was
shared with everyone.
B. J. was back with her two
granddaughters. She is busy teaching them
how to use fabric. They are willing to
learn. She is a good teacher.
Our batting is in from North Carolina so
Tuesday the Lancaster boys will measure,
cut, fold, and tie into 3-yard lengths. We


use a lot of this batting every year and it
works great for the quilters.
The weather is so great, the yard grass
is turning green and the birds are back.
Maybe Spring is coming. We'll wait for a
while before planting outside.
Thursday lunch was good with chicken
and rice, peas, scalloped potatoes, macaroni
shells, potato salad, beans, fried chicken,
brownies, chocolate cake and so much
more.

NRC Schedules Meeting to Discuss

Crystal River Restart March 22


The Nuclear Regulatory Commission staff has
scheduled a meeting in Crystal River to discuss the restart
of the Crystal River nuclear plant, located on the west
coast of Florida about 80 miles north of Tampa.
The meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Tuesday, March
22 in Room 150 of the Crystal River nuclear plant
training center, 8200 West Venable Street in Crystal
River, and will be open to members of the public and
the news media. NRC and Progress Energy officials
will discuss the company's preparations and readiness to
restart the plant. NRC officials will also be available to
answer questions after the discussion.
The Crystal River plant shut down in the fall of
2009 for a planned refueling outage that included
replacement of the steam generators. To move the large
steam generators into the containment building, workers


removed concrete to create the necessary opening.
During that work, the plant staff discovered a separation
or gap in the concrete containment wall. The Crystal
River plant has been shut down since then while Progress
Energy investigated the cause of the gap and repaired the
concrete containment.
"The separation did not increase the risk to people
living near the plant because the company's analyses
and our inspections found that the gap was created
by the work done after the plant was shut downn" said
NRC Region II Administrator Victor McCree. "NRC
inspectors have conducted many inspections and reviews
of the company's analyses and repairs, and the plant will
not restart until the repaired containment building meets
all safety requirements."


The Fanning Springs Chamber of Commerce held its
Annual Banquet on Tuesday evening, the 22nd of February
at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Fanning Springs. We had
a very good attendance and everyone enjoyed an evening
of fellowship and good food. There were many door prizes
contributed and won by the delighted attendees.
This year we recognized with appreciation Renatta
Smith of Point of View Antiques, Melba Goldschlager and
Pure Water Wilderness. Renatta and Melba are always
ready to help whenever something needs to be done. Pure
Water Wilderness and Executive Director Donna Creamer
contribute in many ways to promote our beautiful area and
bring many visitors to enjoy the varied activities we have to
offer.
We presented Bob and Dot Leichner of Dixie Music
Co with the Business of the Year award for their hard
work and contributions. Bob organizes the entertainment
for the Festival of Lights and they both perform as well.
Haven Hospice was selected as the Volunteer Non-Profit
Organization of the Year. This award was accepted by Vondla
Sullivan and Debra Phillips. City Commissioner Barbara
Locke was presented with the Volunteer of the Year award


for her many contributions to the Chamber. The Lifetime
Achievement Award was presented to Vice President Ron
Sundberg who was one of the original founders of the
chamber.
President Velma Poole gave an update on the chamber
membership and various events of the past year. She also
urged everyone to help with the various projects coming up
for the New Year as well.
The Chamber will be participating in the Quilt Festival
at the Trenton Depot this coming Friday night and all day
Saturday, March 11 and 12. We will have a wide variety of
the sweetest, yummiest desserts you could want. Make sure
to stop by and satisfy that sweet tooth and plan on taking
some home with you too! There will brownies, cookies,
cakes, pies, candies and much more to choose from. If you
would like to contribute your specialty, contact the chamber
office at 463-9089 or 339-2248 and let us know. This is one
of our fundraising events for the year and it is always great to
meet everyone.
Until next time, have a great week!

Some of the members made French Rose quilts and
Stack and Whack quilts especially for the show. Be
sure to view all the quilts from Springhouse and other
individuals during the festival.
Also available for the show will be the 2011 guild
