A Funny'Ihing

Happened on

Sthe Way to the

Post Office

Some Levy County Journal subscribers were probably wondering
what was up with last week's edition. The newspaper, printed at the
Gainesville Sun, was delivered to the Bronson Post Office and processed
for mail delivery, as is the usual protocol each week. As postal regulation
dictates, some newspapers, sorted in sacks for different mail delivery
routes, are then trucked back to Gainesville's Bulk Mail Facility for
distribution. Somewhere, the sacks of newspapers went AWOL.
We have reports that the missing newspapers are starting to turn up
all over the Tri-County area, so if you are missing last week's edition,
it may turn up in the mail soon. Please feel free to drop by one of our
offices to pick up a newspaper if you didn't get one, free of charge of
course. In Bronson, our office is located at 440 South Court Street, a
block from the Levy County Courthouse. In Chiefland, come by the
Old Post Office building at 26 SE 1st Avenue. We apologize for the
inconvenience.

Attention! Single file and Stand UP Straight. Looks like the tomato-stake soldiers are obeying their
field commander on CR 320 in Chiefland. Soon we will be able to truly enjoy the fruit of their labor
in our salads and sauces and even just by themselves. Yum!

The Dixie County Sheriffs Office received a call at 1:09 a.m. on
Friday, March 4, 2011 requesting that a deputy be dispatched to the
weight scales in Old Town. According to the caller, his son, Torrey A.
Pendarvis, 22, of Trenton, came to his place of work and stated that
he had been in an accidental shooting incident while hunting. When
the deputy arrived, Pendarvis agreed to accompany the deputy to the
location where the incident had occurred.
During the same time period, the co-workers ofJenny M. Jackson,
18, of Old Town, called the Sheriffs Office and said that Jackson had
taken her break earlier, had not returned to work, and this was very
out of character for Jackson. They requested that deputies look for
Jackson in case she had some difficulty.
Pendarvis, in the meantime, had made statements to the deputy
that the incident did not actually involve a hunting accident and that
Jackson's body was located in a wooded area in Taylor County.
The initial responding deputy notified his patrol supervisor who
then requested the assistance of the Taylor County Sheriffs Office and
investigators with the Dixie County Sheriffs Office.
Upon arrival in the area in Taylor County where the victim was


disposed of, Sheriffs officials searched the wooded area along the
west side of the roadway and discovered the body ofJackson. Sheriff
Hatcher and Taylor County Sheriff, L. E. Williams then met with
Assistant State Attorney Dave Phelps and requested the assistance of
the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Lab and agents.
The subsequent investigation at the scene revealed Jackson had been
the victim of a homicide. Pendarvis was transported to the Taylor
County jail for further interviews while the investigation continued at
the scene in Taylor County. The investigation revealed that both the
Pendarvis and Jackson vehicles were located in Dixie County where
they were secured. Both vehicles were searched along with another
scene in Dixie County during the day Friday where the investigator
recovered other relevant items of evidence in the case.
Late Friday afternoon, Torrey Allen Pendarvis was arrested
and booked into the Taylor County jail. At this time, Pendarvis is
currently charged with the murder ofJenny Jackson and tampering
with evidence regarding his activities after the homicide.

Teen Critically Injured in Three-Car Pile Up


East of Bronson
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a
three-vehicle crash that occurred on State Road
24 east of Bronson. The crash resulted in life
threatening injuries to an Archer teenager.
A 1999 Saturn, driven by Nathan Lastra, 18,
of Bronson was traveling east on State Road 24
and had stopped while attempting to make a left
turn onto NE 96th Place. A 2004 Ford Pickup
n driven by Tim Rogers, 51, of Archer was also


traveling eastbound on State Road 24.
The Ford pickup rear-ended Lastra's Saturn
causing severe damage to the rear of the car and
critically injuring a rear seat passenger, John
Deemer, 18, of Archer.
A 2004 Honda automobile driven by Ashley
Rhodes, 26, of Archer, was traveling behind the
Ford pickup. After the pickup struck the Saturn,

Lastra and his passenger, and another
teenager, 17, of Bronson received minor injuries.
Rogers and Rhodes were not injured in the
crash. Deemer was transported to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville with life threatening
injuries.
FHP Troopers from the Cross City and
Gainesville Districts are continuing the
investigation.


I Chiefland Increases

Business Tax in 2011


Chiefland City Commissioners voted four to one to adopt an
amendment to an ordinance calling for a rate increase to the tax for doing
business in the city. A three percent increase was charged but refunded
for 2010 because the ordinance was not ratified by two readings of the
amendment calling for the change. Last night's meeting was the second
reading of the ordinance, as required by law. The amendment calls for an
increase in the local business tax of up to five percent every other year.
The rate increase for the 2011 to 2012 fiscal year is three percent, or
slightly less than $1 for most businesses.

Matching Grant for
Fencing Delma Locke
State Park Approved
City Commissioners voted to approve the
grant award contract of $1,942.66 from the
Florida League of Cities to purchase fencing
materials for Delma Locke State Park-the .';'y
skateboard park located at 826 NW 4th Drive.
The action allows the city to accept the nearly
$2,000 grant to fence the area with picnic
tables and benches and will match it with in-
kind contributions of labor. Chiefland Police
Chief Robert Douglas asked that the fence be
positioned to provide a single point of access to
that area so that it can be better patrolled by the
Levy County Police Department. The park will
not be gated at this time. Delma Locke State Park

Chiefland City Staff Pitchs In

to Support the Levy County

Schools Cycle for Education.

The event, slated for Saturday, April 16, is open to everyone and
is designed as a day of fun, not competition. About ten city staffers,
including all city commissioners, will personally donate money
to fund a sponsorship on behalf of the City of Chiefland for the
event. Money raised by the event supports the Levy County School
Board with projects, supplies, field trips and teachers they could not
otherwise afford in its budget.

Williston Arrests


Two Charged with Grand Theft
Auto in Williston

On March 7, at approximately 1 p.m., Williston law
enforcement reported that two men were seen entering and
driving a green Ford F-250 truck by the owner. The vehicle
was parked in the Perkins Bank parking lot. The men drove
west. The defendant and co-defendant were apprehended
in the truck at a K-Mart Center in Athens, Tennessee at
approximately 2:30 p.m. on March 8th. Mark Edward Broat,
21, and William Charles Kearney, 21, both from Williston
were arrested on a Fugitive from Justice warrant and jailed in
Athens. The two were charged with Grand Theft Auto.

Teen Arrested for Shoplifting

Before exiting a store with unpaid merchandise at about 8
p.m. on March 10, a male teenager was told by the manager
at the CVS that he had to pay for the items he had in the
pocket of his sweatshirt. The teenager tried to purchase the
items with a credit card, but was unsuccessful. The teen then
left the store telling the manager that he would come back
with money to pay for the items.
After reviewing the store tape, the manager realized that
the teenager had successfully passed one item by the store
scanner. Williston Police detained the teen on East Noble
Avenue where he admitted to taking the item without paying
for it. The item was found in his left pants pocket, and he was
charged with retail theft under $300. He was transported to
the Levy County Jail without incident.

Man Charged with Indecent
Exposure
At 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 12, a Williston police
officer observed a man standing beside a telephone pole at a
coin laundry with his hands by his pants zipper for about 15
seconds. He then made a shaking motion by his zipper, pulled
it up and walked along the sidewalk of north Noble Avenue.
The officer observed in his incident report that many motorists
passed by. When the officer apprehended the suspect, the
suspect said, "You caught me red-handed, yes sir." Tony
Phillip Leto, 26, of Morriston, was charged and ordered to
appear at the Levy County Court House in Bronson.


LCSO Warns

Driveway Paving

Scams on the Rise

in Levy County

The Levy County Sheriffs office has notified local media
of a rise in driveway paving scams in and around the Levy
County area. These scams have been focusing on the elderly
and people on a limited or fixed income. The con artists
offer victims a deal. They inform the homeowner that they
have "just enough asphalt left over from another job." These
con artists are normally very polite and persuasive, although
they have used pressure tactics and threats of intimidation.
However, after the work is done and the driveway is paved
the con artists demand a lot more money than was originally
quoted. The asphalt used during the project is often low
quality and their finished work product is questionable.
The Sheriffs Office offers these tips: 1) Never be pressured
into something. If it does not feel right, decline the offer; 2)
you pick the contractor do not let them pick you; and pay by
check, never cash. 3) Limit any upfront payment to 10 to 15
percent ofjob cost.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
By Scott Finnen at Levy County Sheriffs Office.


DUI x3 Driver Stopped Again

On March 6 at 1:23 p.m. a concerned citizen called
in about a reckless driver in the city limits of Williston.
The caller advised that a red Ford F-150 was speeding
and driving recklessly. The caller told Williston law
enforcement that the man parked the truck in the Winn-
Dixie parking lot, walked several feet, and then returned
to the vehicle and drove away. The caller observed the
driver at the McDonald's drive-in, placing an order.
The vehicle drove off without the order. Officer Kevin
Sheppard observed the truck as it spun its tires and sped
away from a stop sign. The officer made a traffic stop at
a coin laundry on East Noble Avenue. The officer asked
the driver for his license and detected the odor of alcohol
in the vehicle. The driver, Brenden D. Langford, 26, of
Williston, told the officer that his license was suspended
and he was detained. The officer searched the vehicle and
found an empty bottle ofJagermeister in a brown bag on
the passenger seat of the truck. Also found on the driver's
side floorboard was a plastic container partially filled with
Jagermeister.
Langford refused all field sobriety tests as well as and
Intoxilyzer test. He was charged with Driving with
License Suspended or revoked with intent and issued a
DUI citation for refusal to submit to a Breath/Blood/
Urine test. Langford has previously been charged three
times with Driving Under the Influence in 2004, and for
DWLSR for refusal to submit to tests in 2006. Langford
was transported to the Levy County Jail.


Chiefland Police Chief

to Get Estimates to

Build on Department

Property
Police Chief Robert Douglas told commissioners
that he has secured a $10,000 grant from the police
foundation to fund a building adjacent to the
department's current offices to house records and provide
storage and an interview room the current space will not
allow. The chief told commissioners with the grant and
approximately $12,000 additional dollars from impact
fees collected by the city and allocated to his department,
a concrete block building could be built and finished
to provide the department the much needed space.
Commissioners gave the thumbs up to his request to get
estimates so that a formal bid can be made to complete
the project.

OPINION
4 Mar. 17, 2011 The County Paper, Est. 1923 levyjournalonline.com The Levy County Journal


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

The biggest myth .
about labor unions is that
unions are for the workers.
Unions are for unions,
just as corporations are for "
corporations and politicians .
are for politicians.
Nothing shows the utter
cynicism of the unions '-
and the politicians who '
do their bidding like the
so-called "Employee Free -
Choice Act" that the Obama '
administration tried to push
through Congress. Employees' free choice as to whether or
not to join a union is precisely what that legislation would
destroy.
Workers already have a free choice in secret-ballot elections
conducted under existing laws. As more and more workers
in the private sector have voted to reject having a union
represent them, the unions' answer has been to take away
secret-ballot elections.
Under the "Employee Free Choice Act," unions would not
have to win in secret-ballot elections in order to represent the
workers. Instead, union representatives could simply collect
signatures from the workers until they had a majority.
Why do we have secret ballots in the first place, whether in
elections for unions or elections for government officials? To
prevent intimidation and allow people to vote how they want
to, without fear of retaliation.
This is a crucial right that unions want to take away from


Union Myths
workers. The actions of union mobs in Wisconsin, Ohio and
elsewhere give us a free home demonstration of how little
they respect the rights of those who disagree with them and
how much they rely on harassment and threats to get what
they want.
It takes world-class chutzpah to call circumventing secret
ballots the "Employee Free Choice Act." To unions, workers
are just the raw material used to create union power, just as
iron ore is the raw material used by U.S. Steel and bauxite
is the raw material used by the Aluminum Company of
America.
The most fundamental fact about labor unions is that they
do not create any wealth. They are one of a growing number
of institutions which specialize in siphoning off wealth
created by others, whether those others are businesses or the
taxpayers.
There are limits to how long unions can siphon off
money from businesses, without facing serious economic
repercussions.
The most famous labor union leader, the legendary John L.
Lewis, head of the United Mine Workers from 1920 to 1960,
secured rising wages and job benefits for the coal miners,
far beyond what they could have gotten out of a free market
based on supply and demand.
But there is no free lunch.
An economist at the University of Chicago called John L.
Lewis "the world's greatest oil salesman."
His strikes that interrupted the supply of coal, as well
as the resulting wage increases that raised its price, caused
many individuals and businesses to switch from using coal to
using oil, leading to reduced employment of coal miners. The
higher wage rates also led coal companies to replace many
miners with machines.
The net result was a huge decline in employment in the


coal mining industry, leaving many mining towns virtually
ghost towns by the 1960s. There is no free lunch.
Similar things happened in the unionized steel industry
and in the unionized automobile industry. At one time, U.S.
Steel was the largest steel producer in the world and General
Motors the largest automobile manufacturer. No more.
Their unions were riding high in their heyday, but they too
discovered that there is no free lunch, as their members lost
jobs by the hundreds of thousands.
Workers have also learned that there is no free lunch,
which is why they have, over the years, increasingly voted
against being represented by unions in secret ballot elections.
One set of workers, however, remained largely immune
to such repercussions. These are government workers
represented by public sector unions.
While oil could replace coal, while U.S. Steel dropped
from number one in the world to number ten, and Toyota
could replace General Motors as the world's leading producer
of cars, government is a monopoly. Nobody is likely to
replace the federal or state bureaucracies, no matter how
much money the unions drain from the taxpayers.
That is why government unions continue to thrive while
private sector unions decline. Taxpayers provide their free
lunch.

Social Networking via Levy

County Journal Newspaper


Kathy Hilliard
Staff Writer


This is an age of "social networking."
People are connecting all day long
around the world. The phenomenon of
Facebook engages 500 million active
users in contributing to messages, news,
and information through its site and the
Facepeople's mobile devices. Facebook is
a social utility that connects people with
friends and others in their realm. On any
given day 50 percent of those 500 million
are using Facebook to get their point across
to someone in the world.
Twitter has 190 million people
participating on their micro-blogging
website. Twitterers send 65 million
messages of 140 characters or fewer. The
difference is the Twitter people do not have
to deal with receiving back any replies.
That is a lot less to do every day.
And, oh, the blog scene. What an
education you can get there. Everything
from real news and information to out-
and-out lies to prove a point. This can be
exhilarating or crucifying. Just by going to
a blog site you can say whatever you want
concerning a subject. But, there is a bit of


a holdup here usually. The "commentator"
can take off offensive language and
downright vilifying remarks purposefully
meant to tear down reputations or
ideologies. This is not the place for the
fainthearted or those who take offense
easily. But it will wake up your mind to
understanding where people stand.
All of the above are public contributions
to society. They are important to
understanding what and why people think
the way they do. We at the Levy County
Journal think that the public contributions
of our readers are important and we have
been reaching out to our readers to let us
know what is going on in the neighborhood
and schools so we can let others get in on
the information. We thank all those who
have contributed their time and stories to
our Levy County social network news.
We also ask that you continue to let us in
on your world and your news. We believe
that the voice of the people should have a
venue whether it is historical, educational or
political. It is newsworthy and important
to us. We value greatly your public
contributions to the Levy County Journal
reading audience.

The Witch Hunt Against Gun


Owners

By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

"The Second Amendment," Charlton
Heston used to say, "is America's first
freedom." The Second secures the rest.
It's a message narcissistic journalists
need to hear again. A decade ago, Heston
chastised the media in a National Press Club
speech for its collective ignorance, apathy and
open hostility toward gun owners' rights:
"Clearly, too many have used freedom of
the press as a weapon not only to strangle
our free speech, but to erode and ultimately
destroy the right to keep and bear arms,
as well. In doing so, you promoted your
profession to that of constitutional judge and
jury, more powerful even than our Supreme
Court, more prejudiced than the Inquisition's
tribunals. It is a frightening misuse of
constitutional privilege, and I pray that you
will come to your senses and see that these
abuses are curbed."
Alas, Heston's prayers have yet to be
answered. While courts have recently
bolstered Second Amendment rights,
endangering gun owners in the name of free
speech continues to be the blood sport of the
Fourth Estate.
Two weeks ago, the Roanoke (Va.) Times
published an online database of registered
concealed handgun permit holders in the
paper's community under the sanctimonious
guise of "Sunshine Week." The database
included both the names and street addresses
of some 135,000 Virginians with permits
to carry concealed weapons. Columnist
Christian Trejbal patted himself on the back
for making it easy to snoop on the neighbors:
"I can hear the shocked indignation ofgun-
toters already: It's nobody's business but mine
if I want to pack heat. Au contraire. Because
the government handles the permitting, it is
everyone's business."
Trejbal denied that compiling the
concealed carry permit holders list was "about
being for or against guns." But he exposed his
true agenda when he compared law-abiding
gun owners to ... sex offenders: "A state that
eagerly puts sex offender data online complete
with an interactive map could easily do the
same with gun permits, but it does not."
The Roanoke Times showed reckless
disregard for the safety of the license holders
and reckless disregard for accuracy. In his
column, Trejbal admitted that he knew some
of the information he had obtained was
inaccurate -- but published it anyway: "As
a Sunshine Week gift, The Roanoke Times
has placed the entire database, (SET ITAL)
mistakes and all (END ITAL) (emphasis
added), online at www.roanoke.com/
gunpermits.
You can search to find out if neighbors,
carpool partners, elected officials or anyone
else has permission to carry a gun."


After an
uproar among
gun-owners,
including
domestic
violence
victims
licensed to
carry, the
Times finally
decided to
yank the
database. Trejbal seems not to feel much
remorse: "Did we make it easier (to obtain
the information)? Yes. But it's still a public
record." Let's review: He published a list
he knew contained inaccuracies. His paper
admits the decision endangered gun owners.
He compiled a convenient shopping list for
criminals -- and smacked law-abiding gun
owners in the face with his comparison of
their choice to exercise their rights with sex
offenders.
Public disclosure of concealed carry
licenses varies from state to state. Eighteen
states protect permit holders' privacy from
public view. Virginia is one of 17 states that
make licensee records public. If information
is public, does it make it right for a
newspaper to publish it? The media exercise
discretion all the time in withholding the
names of minors or rape victims. Why
should the privacy of law-abiding concealed
handgun permit holders be treated with any
less concern?
While the Roanoke Times has retreated,
the witch hunt against gun owners
continues. In New York City, Mayor Michael
Bloomberg launched a "sting" operation
targeting gun shops in five states for allegedly
selling guns illegally. Alan Gottlieb and
Dave Workman of the Second Amendment
Foundation report that Bloomberg sent
unauthorized private investigators to conduct
the operation -- without notifying the
Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives (ATF):
"The odor ripened when Bloomberg
filed civil lawsuits against these gun shops,
rather than turn over evidence to the
proper authorities for criminal prosecution.
Bloomberg's office refused to turn over that
evidence, and instead the billionaire mayor
launched a high-profile media campaign
demonizing the targeted gun shop operators."
Bloomberg has, of course, earned the
praise of the anti-Second Amendment
media for his security-undermining stunt.
The unholy alliance between Big Nanny
politicians and journalists threatens us all.

Playing the Hand


You're Dealt I


Back in school they used to call me Flickty.
I don't know where they got the name, it
just seemed to fit. The Sheffield Unabridged
would define it as: (Flickty- Someone
coordinationally challenged. Someone un-
swooft.)
I guess I got tagged that mostly because
of these big feet of mine; size fourteen. They
cause me to run like a punch-drunk Ronald
McDonald with a bad rash! My football
coaches never knew what to do with me. I
weighed a buck fifty and couldn't keep up
with the lineman. So, as most flickty folks
do, I eventually drifted towards slow pitch
softball. There, the coaches always pretended
to be nice to me. Though it's awfully
suspicious how I always mistakenly end up
with last year's schedule, and the wrong color
jersey.
Naturally I was a little wary when a team
called me to come fill in recently. Had they
forgotten how many triple plays I had hit
into? "Ah who cares?" I thought. It was time
old Flickty came out of retirement. I'd been
wedged in behind a desk too long. Besides,
I'd have a whole week to get back in shape.
Game day soon came and along about the


Audrey was born in
Hamilton, Ontario,
Canada. She was
married on Jan. 21,
L1 \1950 in Toronto,
Ontario to John W.
Segriff and they had
three sons and a
daughter,
Bill, Jack, Rod, Cindy. Audrey and family came
to the United States in Dec. 1964 and she became a
Naturalized Citizen in 1970 in Anchorage, Alaska
and worked for RCA Alascom as a Telex Operator.
Audrey was the Telex Communications Operator
for RCA Alascom when President Richard Nixon
came to greet Japanese Emperor Hirohito in
Anchorage, Alaska in 1971.
Audrey retired in 1983 and moved to Williston,
Florida with her husband John to start a
Thourghbred Horse Breeding Farm. Audrey loved
playing golf in her women's leagues and playing
in golf tournaments with her husband in between
working in the Emergency Admissions office at the
Williston Nature Coast Hospital.
Audrey moved to Utah in 2001 and lived
with her daughter, Cynthia Lee (Cyn) and the
two enjoyed the same things along with sailing,
camping, golfing and of course Bingo.
Audrey was a quick wit with a joke for anyone,
and loved doing things for others. Hunting down
a great bargain at bargain stores and garage sales
because someone had told her that they had a need
for something was what she truly loved, and usually
found just the right fit for them.
For the past few weeks Audrey stayed at the
Wasatch Care Center where she received great care
and consideration and was made comfortable until
she passed in her sleep.
Audrey was preceded in death by her husband,
John W. Segriff in 1999, and her oldest son, Bill E.
Segriff in 2009.
She is survived by three children and one sister,
Dorothy Thornton of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada,
of eight brothers and sisters.
We all loved you Mom, we know you always
loved all your children no matter how much trouble
we were in or how little we had and you always
showed us your love. )

could think with Guy Sheffie4
of just short
of calling my shot. With a show like that,
nobody could've guessed the truth; my only
chance of not getting thrown out at first was
to hit it out of the park.
This was forefront in my mind as the
pitcher wafted that first big grapefruit down
the pike. I took a cut that would've made the
Might Casey blush. The wind shear alone
blew off the pitcher's hat! Unfortunately,
I'd swung several seconds early and I fear I
may have not actually hit the ball until my
backswing. The pitcher charged the little
dribbler, gathered up his hat, fixed his hair,
and was ready to toss the ball to first before I
could stumble across home plate.

REV. LUTHER RAY STOKES
Rev. Luther Ray
SStokes of Williston,
born Oct. 16, 1924,
S. received his final
appointment into

and Tadeen Camp Elliot, Calif., before being
honorably discharged on Dec. 31, 1945.
In 1946 Rev. Stokes, faithful to the call into
the ministry, enrolled at Asbury College in
Wilmore Ky., where he graduated in 1950 with a
B.A. in Philosophy and Religion. His life verse
was Proverbs 3:5-6. While at Asbury he met and
married his devoted wife, Clara Orander from
Crumpler, WV on Aug. 4, 1948 who also graduated
from Asbury in 1950.
While attending school, Rev. Stokes served the
student charge of Berry and Boyd in the Lexington
District of the Methodist Church for five years and
enrolled in Divinity School at Asbury Iheological
Seminary graduating in 1954. He then pastored the
Vicco, Ky. Methodist Church in the Barbourville
District before accepting a call to return to the
Tallahassee District of the Florida Conference in

bid a sad farewell to Williston and accepted
the appointment to the Lake City First United
Methodist Church. He retired from the pastorate
in 1979 but continued in the Florida Conference

Illustralon by Aiexa
M ost of what I knew or thought
I knew about cowboys and
Indians I learned as a boy
munching popcorn in the cool dark of my
grandfather's movie theater down on Main
Street in the little town of Alachua.
Little is more fully ingrained in the
collective American memory than iconic
images of Indians on horseback chasing down
buffalo across the Great Plains, or cowboys
and Indians shooting it out in the Red
Rock country of the Southwest. Up in the
Rockies where there was good trapping and
precious metals that made choice ground
to fight over, too. Popular TV series such as
Gunsmoke, Wagon Train and The High
Chaparral brought Hollywood's versions
of the "Wild West" into our living rooms.
Buttressed by classics like Zane Gray's Riders
of the Purple Sage, Louis L'Amour's frontier
collection or Larry McMurtry's Lonesome
Dove, these cinematic images draw our
eye, even now, to the American West of the
1800s. But in reality, the battle between
cowboys and Indians had begun millennia
before in the tall pines and dense palmettos
of our Florida.
Spanish explorer Diego Pena wrote in his
1716 journal that a herd of over 300 buffalo
and cattle grazed on natural pasture in the
vicinity of what is today Tallahassee. Earlier
expeditionary forces across the South had
(whether by sword or disease) commenced
the demise of the buffalo's primary predator,
the Native Americans. So for a while, these
lumbering beasts found rich grass and met
with little hostility across the Mississippi
southward down into Florida.


Riders of

the Purple

Palmettos
Rider Key
That fact changed rather rapidly, however,
when an increasing number of Spaniards
began to settle in the area. The surviving
Indians also acquired better firearms and
eventually the settlers and Indians eliminated
the buffalo from Florida more than a hundred
years before the buffalo hunters in the West
almost accomplished the same thing out there.
Cattle in Florida fared better.
A thumbnail sketch of the history of cattle
in Florida puts the first of that species here
in 1521. That's when Juan Ponce De Leon,
having already made his fabled discovery of
the Fountain of Youth, returned to establish
a colony in Florida. His records report that
he brought a small herd of Andalusion
cattle and some horses with him that time.
Most authoritative texts state that these
were the first cattle and horses to set foot on
the territories now know as the continental
United States.
The Calusa Indian warriors in the
neighborhood, however, weren't very
impressed with Ponce De Leon's plans for a
Spanish settlement. In fact, they battled over
the issue and Ponce himself was mortally
wounded. Based on what is known about
the injured explorer's hasty retreat to Cuba
(where he soon died), it's a pretty good
bet the livestock got stampeded into the
palmettos and became the first cattle to run
wild in Florida and the U.S.
Of course that wasn't the end of the
Spanish colonials; more conquistadors
came and brought cattle, swine, and
horses. Expeditionary manifests show that
Andalusion cattle remained the breed of
choice. Inevitably continued on page 8

Barrier Islands: Creations of Tide and
Time Exhibit, Mar. 17
Explore the Florida Museum of Natural
History's newest exhibit, "Barrier Islands:
Creations of Tide and Time" from March 17
through June 26.
The free exhibit provides visitors with a
glimpse of southeastern barrier islands through
26 paintings by Florida artists Brenda Hofreiter,
Nancy Moskovitz and MaryJane Volkmann.
"Sculpted by waves, wind and salt, barrier
islands are beloved for their beauty but also
support unique flora and fauna and play a critical
role in protecting the mainland from storms," said
Darcie MacMahon, Florida Museum assistant
director for exhibits. "We hope this exhibit
inspires viewers to admire and then look deeper
to discover the significance of barrier islands to
our lives."
The exhibit depicts scenes from the islands'
interior and exterior habitats, including wildlife,
structural features such as lighthouses and
landscapes of sunrises, sunsets, tidal marshes and
more.
Artists Hofreiter, Moskovitz and Volkmann
are past recipients of the Georgia Department of
Natural Resources Artist-in-Residence Program,
which allowed them to live on Sapelo Island and
paint neighboring barrier islands. The artists have
continued painting barrier islands of the southeast
to enjoy and share their beauty and importance
with others.
The Florida Museum of Natural History is
located near the intersection of Southwest 34th
Street and Hull Road in the University of Florida
Cultural Plaza in Gainesville. Hours are from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from 1 to
5 p.m. Sunday. For more information visit www.

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 down," 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."


CFEC Hosts Relay for Life Golf Tournament


The employees of Central Florida Electric
Cooperative are pleased to announce that
the Third Annual Relay for Life Golf
Tournament will be held on April 9, 2011,
beginning with breakfast at 7:00 a.m. and a
shotgun start at 8:00 a.m., at the Chiefland
Golf and Country Club, in Chiefland, Fla.
The tournament registration fee is $150

the fight against cancer.


Secrets Unfold During Archaeology

Anthropological Society Month
March is Florida Archaeology Month sponsored by the Florida Anthropological Society
and its partners that protect archaeological sites throughout the state. Each year the Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge hosts walks at its Shell Mound site made famous by the
spectacular collection of pottery in Bradenton's South Florida Museum.
The last of two Ranger-led walks at Shell Mound will be held March 25th, at 10 a.m..
Meet the Ranger in the small parking area next to the Shell Mound Trailhead to learn the
history of the mound, its native people and native plants.
To top off the month's celebration a panel discussion by Dr Kenneth Sassaman and his
three graduate students who have been surveying the thirty coastal miles of the Lower
Suwannee NWR and the thirteen islands of the Cedar Keys NWR. Two of the five-year
surveys have been completed and each year more details of the ancient anglers are discovered.
A slide presentation and Artifact ID Day will accompany the discussion. Join the Refuge
Ranger and panel on March 26th, at 1 p.m. at Cedar Key Library.

WES Safety Patrol Hosts Successful

'Cruzin' for Kidz'


I- I


Williston Elementary School Safety Patrols sport their staff member Ana Armbrister, designed the new shirts.
"cool" t-shirts at the recent "Cruzin' for Kidz" motorcycle The patrols raised almost $9000 to help pay for their June
ride which began at WES. Bobby Armbrister, son of WES trip to our nation's capital.


A beautiful spring Saturday morning and
the sound of 70 motorcycles wheeling into
the bus loop made for a very happy group of
5th graders, all members of the Williston
Elementary School Safety Patrol. The
organization's 3rd annual "Cruzin' for Kidz"
motorcycle ride, held on March 5th, was a
success! Sponsors, t-shirt and lunch sales, as
well as donations brought in close to $9000,
almost as much as last year, according to
adviser Lisa Posteraro. The fundraiser helps
defray the cost of the 64 patrols who will
make the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. in
June.
"Some of the bikes were really cool, and the
people were kind," said patrol Ashleigh Sisti.
"There were way more bikers than I ever
thought would come," said patrol Diego
Lavieri-Sosa.
"We have a great bunch of young people
committed to going on this trip. And their
parents were great! Gail Poupard Brown
headed up our publicity committee along
with Cheryl Ous and Daryl Kirby. Members
of our WES staff, Joelene Vining and
Jodi Gamble, headed up the registration
committee and took care of t-shirt sales.
Then Brenda and Don Standridge headed up
the food committee," said Posteraro. "On the
day of the ride, most of the patrols those
who didn't have prior commitments showed
up to help...greeting the riders, wiping down
tables, serving the meals, whatever we asked


them to do. And many
parents were there frorr.
start to finish. That
is what guarantees a
successful fund raiser.
And did I mention our
amazing RIDERS?!"
Lt. Sean Mullins
with the Levy County
Sheriffs Office mapped
out the route through the
southeastern side of the
county and led the group
in his vehicle. Levy Fire Rescue and the
Citizens on Patrol (COPs) were invaluable,
providing the law enforcement escort (and
safety!) for the riders.
"The food was great!" noted patrol Lexi
Zapata.
"We had a great turnout of bikers and
patrols and parents," said patrol Samantha
VelDink. "And we raised a lot of money.
We appreciate them [the riders and parents]
coming and supporting the safety patrols."
"Even though I wasn't there, I heard
it was a good event and that we got a lot
of donations. I appreciate their generous
donations," said patrol Torie Hill.
Will there be a 4th annual CFK? "We're
already looking at the 2012 dates," said
Posteraro. "We'll shoot for sometime in late
February or early March again."

horses tossed their riders when they ran up on a rattlesnake, or broke from
their picket lines when a lightning strike splintered the night sky. With a
newfound enthusiasm for the Spanish livestock, Indian raids also began to
account for the increase of cattle numbers in the lush Florida landscape.
By 1540 Hernando De Soto was making his much-celebrated trek up the
peninsula. Don Diego Maldonado brought a large herd of Spanish cattle and
horses to the Pensacola Bay to supply the expedition. The problem was that
he couldn't find De Soto. By Don Diego's own account, most of that herd
also got lost in the wilderness or otherwise came into the possession of the
Indians.


Keep in mind here, we haven't even gotten to the founding
of our nation's oldest city yet. That came in 1565 when
Pedro Menendez De Aviles founded St. Augustine. Records
archived in both the U.S. and Spain detail frequent shipments
of cattle and horses to St. Augustine and the garrison
stationed there to protect it.
Interestingly enough though, ranching as we know it
today was first established in Florida by those who came to
win souls, not cow contracts or rodeos. These were the Jesuit
and Franciscan Friars who set up a system of missions across
north and north-central Florida for the purpose of converting
Indians to Christianity. Necessarily the Friars also tended
livestock and crops to supply their missions. Often they
engaged Indian labor in the daily chores of maintaining their
gardens, pens and herds.
So it was across North Florida that the first cattle ranches
were established in North America. And, as it has been
noted elsewhere, the first Pilgrim boot had not yet touched
Plymouth Rock.
Unlike the wintry North or arid desserts of the Southwest
where an active network of Spanish missions were also being
established, Florida's immense, wild prairies were abundant
with water and highly conducive to open-range cattle
ranching. Among the first was the vast Hacienda de la Chua
(from which "Alachua" is derived), once located on the North
rim of Paynes Prairie. Other 17th century Florida ranches
included Abosaya, Acuitasigue, and la Rosa del Diablo all
located within lands some 4,000 square miles west of the St.
Johns River and owned by the powerful Menendez family.
The first cattle drives in the continental U.S. were made
by Native American and African vaqueros (cowboys) driving
herds to St. Augustine where the cattle were slaughtered and
sold, their hides and tallow exported to Cuba or back to the
European Old World. Other drives went westward to the
Suwannee where cattle were shipped to holding pens on the
Havana docks.
By 1700, over 30 privately-owned ranchos were registered
on Spanish Florida's tax rolls. Many of the Criollas (those
born to Spanish parents in Florida) were now coming of age
as vaqueros, Florida's first cowboys. Criolla herds flourished
in the early 1700s and so did those kept by the Indians.
Spanish tax collectors at the time reported tens of thousands
of cows grazing on Florida grass. Moreover, these counts
would not have included exempted Mission cattle or those
herded by the Indians. Cattle production on these ranches
increasingly emerged as the major import to Cuba and other
Spanish colonies. Thus Florida's cattle ranching was the first
major industry developed in the New World.
Over time it was inevitable that clashes over culture and
use of the land would lead to conflicts between cow-herding
vaqueros and the natives. About a hundred years before the
likes of Bill Cody or Kit Carson, and long before General
Custer, Sitting Bull or Crazy Horse, Florida's cowboys and
Indians were exchanging fire out across the wet prairies and
into the dusk of wild Florida's purple palmettos.

Positive Recognition at its


Best at BES
Bronson Elementary School takes great pride in
being a PBS (Positive Behavior Support) school!
Being a PBS school gives us the opportunity to
reward students more often for doing the right
thing, as opposed to them only hearing when
they do the wrong thing. Some of the amazing
opportunities that being a PBS school provides us
is having the Excellent Eagle Exchange, Golden
Eagle Egg winners, VIP Wednesdays, Bus Bucks,
and Hard Work Cafe.
The Excellent Eagle Exchange is a store that
students are taken to as a class, to spend their
Eagle Cash. Eagle Cash is awarded to students
who are behaving in the appropriate manner,
doing the right thing, and making sure to set a
positive example for other students on campus.
In this store there are a variety of items available.
At different times we've had MP3 players,
personal CD players, as well as sports t-shirts,
and backpacks. The members of the PBS team
at Bronson Elementary are always on the lookout
for clearance sales and good deals in order to
purchase items to keep the store stocked.
Golden Eagle Egg winners are students who
have been nominated for going out of their way
to do the right thing. These students are honored
at the pep rallies we host every 9 weeks to honor
students with good grades and perfect attendance.
Golden Eagle Egg winners can be seen on the
"Golden Eagle Egg" tree in the front office of
BES.
VIP Wednesdays are held periodically
throughout the year on Early Release
Wednesday. Teachers select 2 students
from each class to represent their class at VIP
Wednesday. These students get to participate in a
fun activity and a drawing to bring back a prize as
a reward.
Riding the bus is not always the easiest thing
to accomplish without having to be spoken to. At
Bronson Elementary School students on the bus
are rewarded with Bus Bucks they get to spend
every few weeks on the "Bus Bucks Bargain Box".
This is a motivator to help them stay seated quietly
to help make their bus ride to and from school
more enjoyable and safe.
Hard Work Caf6 is another opportunity we
have at Bronson Elementary School as a result
of being a PBS school. At least once a month,


Bronson M/H student Tyler Beauchamp
positively recognizes BES' Carrson Whippy
eating at the Hard Work Caf.
students have the opportunity to spend their
Eagle Cash to purchase an "All Access Pass" to
Hard Work Cafe. This gives them access to eat
on stage, in a restaurant setting with Bronson
Middle High School students serving them.
After finishing their lunch, the students at Hard
Work Cafe are able to get up and dance and have
a good time at lunch.
A few times throughout the year, we like
to reward our faculty and staff at Bronson
Elementary School with different tokens of
appreciation as well. We have been able to offer
Manicure and Pedicure gift certificates courtesy
of Bella Nails in Chiefland, as well as gift
certificates to Cracker Barrel in Gainesville and
various certificates to BubbaQues and Hungry
Howie's.
In addition to gift certificates from these
generous businesses, Capital City Bank and
Cameron Asbell Insurance have often contributed
to our endeavors at Bronson Elementary School.
If you have a business, or know of a business
that may be interested in becoming a Bronson
Elementary School business partner, please
contact Caryl Carlisle at (352)486-5281. We are
always welcoming donations and contributions to
help us encourage and motivate our students at
Bronson Elementary School.

FWC Uses Teamwork to Manage


Exotic Species, Improve Habitat


Florida is home to many exotic species. The Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) works with
our partners and the public to manage the animals and plants
that don't belong here.
Education is one tool. Recently, the FWC participated
in Invasive Species Awareness Week. The nationwide event
promoted a greater awareness of nonnative animals and
plants and their impacts on our environment.
Making the right decisions is another tool. On Saturday,
March 12, the FWC will host the fifth annual Nonnative
Pet Amnesty Day at Zoo Miami. Dozens of exotic pet
owners will do the responsible, ethical thing at the event
by surrendering their animals. I know it will be a difficult
decision to give up their beloved pets, but they will have
done the right thing. FWC staff makes every effort to place
the surrendered animals with qualified adopters. In the past,
people have turned in all kinds of nonnative critters the
majority being snakes and other reptiles.
Science plays a big part. Earlier this month, the FWC and
its partners surveyed a small area in western Miami-Dade
County where Northern African pythons have shown up.
Surveyors slogged through marsh and trekked through thick,
heavy brush to find these nonnative snakes or any evidence
of them. FWC biologists routinely survey these areas to stop
the species from spreading. Since 2009, at least 20 Northern
African pythons have been removed from the area.
Besides nonnative animals, Florida also needs to manage
nonnative plants. FWC staff periodically treats Florida's
waterways to manage invasive, exotic, aquatic plants such
as hydrilla, water hyacinth and water lettuce. Hydrilla,
especially, can spread easily throughout the state's lakes and
rivers by hitchhiking rides on boats. It clogs waterways,
making recreational activities difficult or impossible, and it
chokes out beneficial native plants.
One of the best science-based methods the FWC uses to
control the spread of invasive plants is prescribed fire. FWC
biologists recently completed a large burn in the Everglades.
The fires eliminated undesirable, overgrown vegetation, and
created access for future exotic vegetation removal. The result
is improved habitat for our fish and wildlife.
The FWC continues to manage Florida's valuable native
resources in the face of entrenched nonnative species and the
threat of other plants or animals becoming established. We


don't do this alone. We have partners.
Anglers help us deal with illegally
introduced fish. While our goal is to prevent
new exotic fish from entering Florida's
waterways, that's not always possible, so FWC
biologists develop management practices for
these unwanted fish. One management tool for
illegally introduced fish is to encourage anglers
to fish for exotics. The FWC recently certified
a blue tilapia caught in the St. Lucie River
as the largest ever caught recreationally in
Florida. It weighed nearly 10 pounds and broke
the world record!
Hunters in Florida also help the FWC
manage natural resources in the presence of
exotics. Licensed hunters may harvest wild
hogs, a nonnative species, year-round on
private property with landowner permission.
Hunters may also harvest wild hogs from
wildlife management areas during specific
seasons.
Additionally, licensed hunters may take
nonnative reptiles, such as the Burmese python
and Nile monitor lizard, from areas around the
Everglades during specific hunting seasons.
You can help protect our natural resources by
never releasing an exotic critter into the wild.
Not only is releasing nonnatives into the
wild illegal, it can be harmful to our native fish
and wildlife. In some cases, exotic critters will
actually feed on our native fish and wildlife.


Nonnatives can quickly
become a nuisance. Some
spread disease. Some destroy
agriculture.
Each of us can make a
difference and help protect
natural Florida. Please report
fish and wildlife law violators
to the FWC's Wildlife Alert
hotline, 888-404-FWCC.

Bees in Florida do a job no one
else can do nearly as well or as
economically, since the bees do it
for free.
Many Florida crops depend
on bees for pollination, including
some citrus, beans, melons, squash,
cucumbers, strawberries and
blueberries. Nationwide, native
bees pollinate crops worth an
estimated $3 billion each year.
Native bees also pollinate
ornamentals and indigenous plants.
The honeybee populations are not
only down from a serious condition
called colony collapse but they
are threatened by the Africanized
honey bees as well.
Florida is home to more than
300 bee species, including some
found nowhere else, said Glenn
Hall, an associate professor in
UF's entomology and nematology
department.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture's Apiary Inspection
plays a vital role in Florida
Agriculture as inspectors work
to prevent the introduction and
establishment of honey bee pests
and diseases. A healthy and secure


Florida honey bee industry is
valuable to all.
Florida's honey industry is
consistently ranked among the top
five in the nation with an annual
worth of $13 million. In addition,
the Florida honey bee industry
benefits our state's fruit and
vegetable industry by providing an
estimated $20 million in increased
production numbers created by
managed pollination services that
are available in no other way. There
are over 100 varieties of popular
fruits and vegetables that use
pollination to ensure fruitful crops.
Florida Apiary Inspectors
certify movement of honey bee
colonies throughout the state and
the nation. These colonies are
monitored for diseases, honey bee
pests and unwanted bee species.
The Department has the most
comprehensive state program (e.g.,
number of inspectors and traps) to
prevent the accidental introduction
of the unwanted Africanized honey
bee. Seventeen million pounds of
honey are produced in Florida each
year and enjoyed around the world.

Guy Sheffield continued frompage 5

In the back of my mind I knew both people in the stands
were probably watching me, so I decided to be a good sport
and run it on out. At least I could show them I never quit. In
fact they used to tell me, "Flickty, you never know when to
quit!" However, there seemed to be some sort of mix up in
my central nervous system that day. My brain was sending
out running instructions, but my legs and arms seemed to
be receiving fighting signals. I commenced whooping the
air like a one man gang. I'm telling you I was almost back
peddling. I nearly cleated a guy over by the dugout while
simultaneously tripping over the pitcher's mound! When
the dust finally cleared, I stood there on the bag, huffing for
air, looking to the umpire for the call. He wasn't paying me
no mind; he had his eye on the next batter who was already
working a full count.
I'll admit; the temptation has been to look into some
sort of foot reduction surgery. Or maybe join a Flickties
Anonymous. I'm sure there's one out there. But the more I
think about it the more I realize its just time I put my foot
down, and without shame. You see, it's God who made me
like this, and He likes me just the way I am. (To the praise of
the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in
the beloved. Ephesians 1:6 KJV) God doesn't want me to be
like everybody else. My fingerprints and DNA are proof of
it. You know what? I'm an original, sculpted by the Master
Himself. I think I'll just start celebrating my un-swooftness!
We've all been dealt a different foot... I mean hand. We
all have our strengths to play to, and our weaknesses to
overcome. The best thing we can do is to just be a good sport
and run it on out. After all, we're just people. There's only
one perfect One, the Lord Jesus, and He wants us to find our
fulfillment in Him.
But anyway- I may be Flickty, but these are the feet the
Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad in them.

Cedar Key's 47th Annual


Fine Art Festiva
In two weeks, historic downtown Cedar Key
will transform into a celebration of fine art. Old
Florida Celebration of the Arts is celebrating
its 47th anniversary, and for its 2nd consecutive
year the Cedar Key Arts Center proudly
presents one of the premier outdoor fine arts
festivals in' the state. Three city blocks on
Historic 2nd Street will be showcasing 125 fine
artists who specialize in a variety of mediums.
Festival visitors will have the opportunity to
meet these artists, sample wonderful local
cuisine, and enjoy live entertainment in City
Park.
Old Florida Celebration of the Arts,
previously known as the Sidewalk Arts Festival,
has attracted artists to Cedar Key since 1964.
Artists and guests step back in time to the small
fishing village for the friendly atmosphere and
calm pace. Visitors have the opportunity to
purchase one-of-a-kind art from a wide variety
of talented artists displaying their works in
oils, acrylics, watercolors, sculptures, jewelry,
ceramics, and photography. Artists will also
be competing for more than $16,000 in prize
money and purchase awards. "Our festival has
a wonderful history and we are so proud to
be once again considered as a premier show.


Artists want to be in this show because of the
wonderful reputation we have gained over the
past 6 years and the community's participation
and hospitality are a major part of what makes
our fine arts festival so special," said Festival
Coordinator Mandy Cassiano.
The entire family will be delighted
throughout the event. City Park has a large
playground directly on the beach and children
will have the opportunity to get their faces
painted, use sidewalk chalk, and enjoy the Art
Cars on display. Indulge in delicious foods
made by local non-profits, civic organizations
and school groups. Some menu items include
smoked turkey legs, locally caught seafood, crab
cakes, hamburgers, hotdogs, freshly squeezed
lemonade, homemade desserts, and don't forget
about Cedar Key's famous steamed clams. A
diverse selection of appetizing dishes will be
offered by 20 food vendors and is sure to satisfy
everyone. Music lovers will enjoy performances
by Current Configuration Bluegrass Band,
Evans Acoustic Reunion, and Lisa Lynne &
George Tortorelli Celtic Duo.
The City of Cedar Key invites you to join
us for this special event and looks forward to
another successful show. Admission is free


SVP Presents The Drowsy Chaperone

on March 25
Suwannee Valley Players announces its upcoming production of The Drowsy Chaperone, a
musical within a comedy that is swooping into town with tons of laughs. Music and lyrics are
by Lisa Lambert and Greg Morrison from the book by Bob Martin and Don McKellarson.
Join the cast of this musical within a comedy crammed full of every cliche, gag and gimmick
from the golden age of musicals. Complete with a wealthy dowager, debonair bridegroom, a
harried producer, jovial gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a flaky "feldzig" chorus girl trying to
steal the stage, a Latin lothario trying to woo the bride-to-be, an aviatrix, and of course the
drowsy chaperone, the show boasts thrills and surprises that take both the cast (literally) and
the audience (metaphorically) soaring into the rafters! The Drowsy Chaperone is presented by
special arrangements with Musical Theatre International. The original Broadway production of
The Drowsy Chaperone was produced by Kevin McCullum, Roy Miller, Bob Boyett, Stephanie
McClelland, Barbara Freitag and Jill Furman.
The show runs March 25 through April 3, 2011 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $12 for adults, $10 for students (K-12) and seniors 65 or
older. Visit www.svplayers.org for more information.
Productions are held at the Chief Theatre, 25 E. Park Avenue, Chiefland.

produced on these lands has a big impact
on the economy. Kindergarten students
at Chiefland Elementary and Whispering
Winds were able to learn some of their first
lessons about Florida Agriculture at the
Chiefland High School Agriculture Land Lab
where the Middle and High School F.F.A.
students hosted "Fun on the Farm Day."
The kindergarten students from Chiefland
Elementary School walked to the land
lab under the supervision of their teachers
and chaperones and travelled around the
"farm" to visit the stations set up by the
F.F.A. students featuring diverse Florida
Agricultural products. The students learned
about the Beef, Swine, Poultry, and Dairy
Industry and sampled
Fresh from Florida i
strawberries and oranges.
At each station the
F.F.A. students taught
a short lesson and the
kindergarten students
circled and colored the
appropriate agricultural
product on their
worksheet.
For the elementary
students the highlights
were petting some of the
animals and participating Students, under

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday
March 10th at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. We have so many busy days now
and many quilters getting away from the
snow and cold. We had a great rain and now
it's a little cool but the sun comes out and all
is well in our world.
We do have a prayer list for Pat, Laura and
Peggy; yet we know our Lord
takes care of everything.
Greg and six boys were out 0-
Tuesday and got the batting
taken care of and they planted
tomatoes, peppers, flowers and
so much more. Next week we
plan to plant more. Thank
Lancaster.
This lovely old ribbon garden -

students were very enthusiastic and asked the
F.F.A. students some tough questions like
"Where do pigs come from?"
Each year the Chiefland F.F.A. Middle
and High School Chapters host "Fun on the
Farm" as a way of introducing Agriculture
to some of our community's youngest
consumers. In April/May the chapters will
follow up with Agriculture Literacy Day
where they will select an elementary class
to visit and read a short children's story on
Agriculture.
Both the Middle and the High School
Chapters are currently preparing for the state
contest and the Suwannee River Fair. It is a
busy time for all the members and they are
very appreciate of the support they receive
from the community and from the teachers
and administrators.
