Public Safety

Telecommunicator's

Hard Work

The Levy County Sheriffs Office would like to take
this opportunity to recognize the unsung heroes of the
public safety community. These men and woman are the
calm voice in the storm during everyone's darkest hour.
They are the glue that keeps everything running smoothly.
We are speaking of our dispatchers, without whom Law
Enforcement, Fire, EMS and myriad other public servants
would struggle to get even the basic functions of their work
accomplished.
This week, April 10-16 is National Public Safety
Telecommunications Week. We take this time to reflect
on these employees of ours and the other men and women
in and around Levy County and the dedicated service they
provide in public safety telecommunications.
These men and women handle almost 60,000 calls for
service in Levy County and set the bar for all of our public
safety agencies to respond and provide prompt and effective
assistance. All this is done to ensure that the quality of life
we have come to expect in Levy County is maintained.

Running Stop Sign

Nets Arrest and Crack

Cocaine

On April 10, Jeffrey Steven Baggett, 35, of Bronson ran a
stop sign and failed to yield the right of way d on Pine Street
in Bronson. During the traffic stop it was revealed that
Baggett had a suspended driver license, and he was arrested
for the traffic violation. During the search incident to arrest
and impound the vehicle, a deputy located seven grams
of crack cocaine in a CD case. Baggett was subsequently
arrested for driving with a suspended driver's license and
possession of crack cocaine and transported to the Levy
County Jail.

CFEC Offers El

Safety Remind
Because of the thunderstorms that recently
passed through the area, Central Florida
Electric Cooperative wants to remind
citizens of the dangers from power lines and
other electrical equipment after a storm.
Electrical hazards can be thought of as
"hidden" because the danger is not readily
evident. In other words, you cannot look
at a downed power line and "see" that it
is energized. therefore you must always
assume that it is energized and very
dangerous.
Some safety tips to avoid serious injury or
death when dealing with the aftermath of a
major storm or disaster are as follows:
* Stay away from downed power lines. Do
not touch trees or limbs that are touching
the downed line as those things can
conduct the electrical energy. Assume
that any dangling wires you encounter are
electrical, and treat all downed or hanging
power lines as if they are energized.
Warn others to stay away and contact
CFEC or the electric utility company
immediately.
* If you are driving and come upon a downed
power line, stay in your vehicle, warn
others to stay away and cornict emergency
personnel or the electric utility. Also when

A search was
conducted and
Barnes located C'0-
the marijuana
and also rock
crack cocaine.
Williams was Charles Williams
arrested tor
possession of marijuana and possession of
Lack cocaine.


ectrical

lers
driving, be careful at intersections where
traffic lights may be out. Stop at all railroad
crossings, and treat road intersections with
traffic signals as a four-way stop before
proceeding with caution.
If flooding becomes an issue, be alert to
any electrical equipment that could be
energized and in contact with water. Never
touch electrical appliances, cords or wires
while you are wet or standing in water.
Never attempt to turn off power at the
breaker box if you must stand in water to
do so. Call CFEC or your electric utility to
shut off power at the meter.
If you are using a generator during an
extended power outage, be sure to follow all
manufacturers' recommendations, such as
not plugging it into a wall outlet or directly
into the home's wiring, which could
inadvertently energize the utility lines and
injure yourself or others working to restore
power.
To report a power outage or if you have
questions or concerns relating to electrical
power, call Central Florida Electric
Cooperative at 800-227-1302 or (352)
493-2511. For more safety tips, go to www.

Political Statistics


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

When someone gives you a f J
check and the bank informs
you that there are insufficient .
funds, who do you get mad
at? In your own life, you get
mad at the guy who gave you
a check that bounced, not at
the bank. But, in politics, you
get mad at whoever tells you
that there is no money.
One of the secrets of the
growth of the welfare state
is that politicians get a lot
of mileage out of making promises, without setting aside
enough money to fulfill those promises.
When Congress votes for all sorts of benefits, without
voting for enough taxes to pay for them, they get the
support of those who have been promised the benefits,
without getting grief from the taxpayers. It's strictly win-
win as far as the welfare-state politicians are concerned. But
it is strictly lose-lose, big-time, for the country, as deficits
skyrocket.
Anyone who says that we don't have the money to pay
what was promised is accused of trying to destroy Social
Security, Medicare or Obamacare-- or whatever other
unfunded promises have been made. It is like blaming the
bank for saying that the check bounced.
It is the same story at the state level as in Washington.
The lavish pensions promised to members of public sector
unions cannot continue to be paid because the money is just


not there. But who are the unions mad at? Those who say
that the money is not there.
How far short are the states? It varies from one state to
another. It also varies with how large a rate of return the
state gets on its investments with the inadequate amount
of money that has been set aside to cover its promised
pensions.
A front page story on the March 28th issue of Investor's
Business Daily showed plainly, with bar graphs, how big
Florida's shortfall is under various rates of return on that
state's investments. Florida's own estimate of its pension
fund's shortfall is based on assuming that they will receive
a rate of return of 7.75 percent. But what if it turns out that
they don't get that high a return?
A 6 percent rate of return would more than triple the
size of Florida's unfunded liability for its employees'
pension. The actual rate of return that Florida has received
over the past decade has been only 2.6 percent. In other
words, by simply assuming a far higher future rate of return
on their investments than they have received in the past,
Florida politicians can deceive the public as to how deep a
hole the state's finances are in.
Political games like this are not confined to Florida.
State budgets and federal budgets are not records of
facts. They are projections based on assumptions. Just by
manipulating a few assumptions, politicians can create a
scenario that bears no resemblance to reality.
The "savings" to be made by instituting Obamacare is a
product of this kind of manipulation of assumptions. Even
when the people who turn out the budget projections do an
honest job, they are working with the assumptions given to
them by the politicians.
The fact that the end results carry the imprimatur of


the Congressional Budget Office-- or of some comparable
state agency or reputable private accounting firm-- means
absolutely nothing.
When Florida arbitrarily assumes that it is going to get a
future rate of return on its pension fund investment that is
roughly three times what its past returns have been, that is
the same nonsense as when the feds assume that Congress
will cut half a billion dollars out of Medicare to finance
ObamaCare.
We would probably be better off if there were no
Congressional Budget Office to lend its credibility to data
based on hopelessly unrealistic assumptions fed to them by
politicians.
One of the reasons why a federal "balanced budget"
amendment is unlikely to do what many of its advocates
claim is that a budget is just a plan for the future. It does
not have to bear any resemblance to the realities of either
the past or the future.
We do not need reassurances that do not reassure,
whether these reassurances are in numbers or in words. No
small part of the reason for the economic collapse we have
been through is that federally designated rating agencies
reassured investors that many mortgage-backed securities
were safe, when they were not.
Not only investors, but the whole economy, would have
been better off without these reassurances. "Caveat emptor"
would be better advice for both investors and voters.

The Democrats' Friends 'n

Fat Cats Protection Plan


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


As the budget stalemate in Washington
continues, Democrats are ratcheting up their
class-warfare caterwauling. Time to bring out
your earplugs and hypocrisy meters:
Liberal political strategist Donna Brazile
took to Twitter to assail fiscal conservatives
for "taking medicine from seniors" and
cutting taxes for "the rich and their corporate
donors."
Do-nothing House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi attacked Republicans
for paving a "path to poverty for America's
seniors and children and a road to riches for
big oil."
The left-wing activist group Campaign for
America's Future bemoaned GOP Rep. Paul
Ryan's "corrupt" budget plan for catering
to "the wealthiest Americans that finance
campaigns, the powerful corporate lobbies
that have deep pockets for politicians in and
out of office."
But as I've said many times, people who
live in fat cat-infested houses shouldn't
throw stones. The left's overheated rhetoric
about pandering to overpaid executives
comes just as an independent inspector
general has exposed the lavish, out-of-
control compensation packages for politically
connected Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
mortgage finance bureaucrats.
According to government watchdogs at
the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the
chief executives of Fannie and Freddie raked
in a combined $17 million in 2009-2010 --
the period when the government-sponsored
entities were handed over completely to
federal conservators. The top six executives at
the two institutions pulled in a combined $35
million over the past two years.
In a little-noticed report released late
last week, FHFA Inspector General Steve
Linick wrote: "F.H.F.A. has a responsibility
to Congress and taxpayers to efficiently,
consistently and reliably ensure that the
compensation paid to Fannie Mae's and
Freddie Mac's senior executives is reasonable.
This is especially true when you realize that the
U.S. Treasury has invested close to $154 billion
to stabilize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."
The "U.S. Treasury" equals taxpayers,
of course. And the "investment" has been
a futile bailout that may reach nearly $400
billion if the plug isn't pulled. Linick found
an appalling "lack of standardized evaluation
criteria, documentation of management
procedures and internal controls" over the
Fannie/Freddie fat cats' salaries.
In other words: crony government business
as usual.
Political appointees to the companies'
boards have pocketed millions in stock
options to bolster support on Capitol Hill.
Clinton-era-appointed board members at


Fannie Mae include Jack Quinn (lawyer for
pardoned
billionaire
fugitive Marc
Rich) and
Jamie Gorelick
(Janet Reno's
lieutenant at
the Justice
Department
and a potential
Obama CIA /
director
nominee). Obama adviser James Johnson
made off with $21 million. Former Obama
chief of staff and current Chicago Mayor
Rahm Emanuel "earned" at least $320,000
for a brief 14-month gig at Freddie Mac.
Clinton Fannie Mae head and Obama
economic confidante Franklin Raines bagged
some $90 million in pay and stock options.
With his ill-gotten gains, Raines went
on to purchase a luxurious three-bedroom,
seven-bath penthouse condominium a few
years ago in the District of Columbia's
Ritz-Carlton Residences for $4.9 million --
complete with rooftop terrace with hot tub,
a butler's pantry and three parking spaces.
Nearly half of the $90 million he earned
over five years at Fannie "was tied to bonus
targets that were reached by manipulating
accounting," regulators told The New York
Times.
Brazile, Pelosi, the leftist ground troops
and Obama's own pay czar have plenty to
say about private executives and corporate
wealth. But they remain radio silent about
the mother of all financial scandals and the
moral hazard-perpetuating government
executives at Fannie and Freddie who were
in charge of engineering the mortgage
meltdown.
Not everyone's looking the other way.
Citizens Against Government Waste
President Tom Schatz noted: "In their
halcyon days, Fannie and Freddie were
notorious for their lavish executive salaries
and perks. Old habits die hard; but taxpayers
should no longer be forced to foot the bill"
for the Fannie and Freddie managements'
"swanky lifestyles."
While Pelosi demagogues Republican
budget cuts for depriving kids and seniors
of their meals, the Beltway-sponsored
Fannie and Freddie behemoths have been
devouring taxpayers' lunches for years. For
Fannie and Freddie lobbyists and leeches,
the path to prosperity has been paved with
a Democratic friends and fat cats protection
plan that epitomizes Washington's culture of
corruption.

Give Blood, Save Lives at Chiefland Community
Drive April 15 and 16
What difference can a single donation make? One figure
frequently cited is that one pint of blood can save up to three
lives because it provides three lifesaving products: red blood cells,
plasma and platelets. But that only scratches the surface of the
impact. Those three people may have children, brothers, sisters or
parents. There may be friends, classmates or coworkers who will all
be affected because a life was saved, because one person made the
decision to donate blood. A one-hour investment of time can have
a far-reaching influence. Be a lifesaver and a life changer, donate
blood today.
LifeSouth and the Chiefland community invite you to be a part of
saving lives when they team up to host a blood drive on Friday, April
15 and Saturday, April 16. Look for the bloodmobile at Wallmart
SuperCenter on North Hwy. 19 each day between the hours of 9
a.m. and 5 p.m. Donors may also give at LifeSouth's Chiefland
donor center, 2202 N. Young Blvd, near Winn-Dixie. Friday hours
are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
All who donate will receive a recognition item and a
complimentary cholesterol screening. Donors must be at least 16
years old, weigh 110 pounds or more, and have photo I.D. Sixteen-
year-old donors must have signed parental consent. For more
information about becoming a donor or about blood drives in your
area, call LifeSouth at (888) 795-2707 or visit www.lifesouth.org.

History of the Yulee Sugar

: Mill Ruins
Presented by The Cedar Key Historical Society
The Cedar Key Historical Society invites all interested persons to their last
Thursday coffee of this season on Thursday, April 21, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. at
the Cedar Key Community Center. Ranger Leroy Smith of the Yulee Sugar
Mill Ruins Historic State Park, Homosassa, will be on hand to enlighten and
entertain the audience about this little known historic site.
The sugar mill was once part of the Yulee's 5,100-acre plantation named
"Margarita" which was located on the Homosassa River in Citrus County. In
1851, Yulee had a plantation home built on Tiger Tail Island and a sugar mill
built on the mainland some distance from the river's edge. In his quest to
become a leading merchant in growing sugar cane and manufacturing sugar,
Yulee enlarged his plantation so that all the needed foodstuffwould be provided
to the plantation inhabitants.
The Yulee sugar mill went into operation in 1851 and was operated until
1864 when a Union Naval force invaded Tiger Tail Island. What happened to
Yulee's plantation home? And was the sugar mill damaged? Ranger Smith will
tell you all about it!
For more information, please call the Cedar Key Historical Society and
Museum at (352) 543-5549.

animals was down from previous years,
however the sales for the 2011 fair totaled
$615,223 surpassing the $580,097 total for
2010. You are to be commended for your
commitment to the kids in the tri-county
area. Resale prices for the animals were higher
this year and we thank our animal buyers for
that. The increase of over $30,000 in sales
during these economically stressful times
shows the support that the buyers commit to
the kids and this event. Our buyers, enduring
a long sale day until the last exhibitor
went through the arena with their animal,
continued to purchase the animals at a great
price. We also had outstanding sponsorship
from local businesses and individuals for the
shows and awards which helps to reduce the
operating expenses at the fair. Without this
kind of support the Fair would not be able to
continue.
The directors also want to thank all of the
show superintendents, advisors, and workers.
Without your help the Fair would not run
smoothly. We had an unprecedented number
of parents and workers offer help this year and
for that we are very thankful.
We would also like to thank the exhibitors
that showed animals. It takes a lot of

effort and commitment to have an animal to
exhibit. With commodity prices up this year it
is very expensive to raise these animals and a
lot of work to prepare them for the shows. We
hope the Fair was a good experience for you
and that you will be back next year.
The board of directors voted to have a
new design for the Fair Book this year and
numerous businesses and family members
bought advertising support in the Fair Book.
We hoped you enjoyed seeing some of the
historical photos in the Fair Book and next
year we celebrate the 60th anniversary of
the Fair so look for a special edition. If you
missed the Fair this year you missed a bit of
Americana that is rapidly disappearing from
Florida. It is inspiring and reassuring to see
the kids interact with their animals and each
other in such a social event.
To everyone that participated, the board
of directors is fortunate to have your support
and are indebted to your continued financial
contributions and help during the 2011 Fair.
We hope to see you in Fanning Springs next
year!

Warm Weather

Means Active

Alligators And )

Crocodiles






The onset of warm weather in the spring is when Florida's
alligators and crocodiles start getting active, and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
reminds Floridians and visitors to be cautious when having
fun in and around water.
Florida is home to two native crocodilians: the American
alligator, which is found in all 67 counties, and the American
crocodile, which may be found in coastal areas of the Keys,
Southeast and Southwest Florida. Both species have shared
Florida's waters with people for centuries.
The FWC recommends keeping pets away from the water.
There are other precautionary measures people should take to
reduce potential conflicts with alligators and crocodiles, and
they are available in the "Living with Alligators" brochure at
MyFWC.com/Alligator and the "Living with Crocodiles"
brochure at MyFWC.com/Crocodile.
Ihe FWC advises, if you have concerns with an alligator
or crocodile that poses a threat to you, your pets or property,
call the FWC's Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-
GATOR (392-4286).

The moment I spotted that nine foot bull
shark swimming down the shoreline I knew
I'd never see my wedding band again. Not
that it was forefront on the minds of the
hordes of panicking people splashing about
wildly trying to get out of the water, it's just
I personally couldn't help thinking, "I'm
not getting back in there to look for it!"
I should've saved myself two days of vacation
frustration and come to that same conclusion
the moment it slid off my finger out there in
four foot of water. There was just one thing
left to do, convince my brother Heath.
At first Heath had shown great brotherly
kindness, trouncing about in the surf,
searching late into the evening. It seemed
unusual, but thoughtful. 'Things didn't really
start smelling fishy until he got up early the
next morning to continue his hunt; alone.
I had to ask myself, "Is there something
unnatural lurking below the surface of his
generosity?" Later my suspicions were further
aroused when I noticed he was shunning
the Frisbee, and how his sand castles were
looking run down and unkempt. When he
donned a new eye patch and a rub on Cracker
Jack tattoo, I finally laid my suspicions to
rest. Heath had contracted the Gold fever!

The Numbers
Sporty Rey was not his real name, but it's a name close
enough, and this is told true enough that some folks
around Tampa will find the man familiar. He was a
lean, clean-cut little fellow who drove a black '49 Buick with
a front grill brandishing a big chrome smirk. Though the
sedan was secondhand, it was immaculate and waxed with
a shine as fine as the day he first drove it up to his red brick
bungalow off Swan Avenue.
Appearances mattered to Sporty. He was smartly dressed,
neatly pressed, and precise in knotting his tie. There was
just enough flash to make neighbors wonder if he was really
an insurance man. Maybe it was the cocky way he wore his
panama hat. Maybe it was those two-toned shoes that raised
suspicions that he might be a "wise guy," one of the Tampa
underworld. Maybe he was connected with Charlie Wall,
dean of Tampa's crime bosses; some of Charlie's minions
drove Buicks and dressed like that.
Wall, a Tampa native, had lorded over a rampant crime
syndicate for decades. He operated out ofYbor, a working
class Cuban neighborhood dominated by cigar workers. Wall
bootlegged liquor, ran brothels and virtually monopolized
the bolita games in the area. His organization was expansive,
extending eventually into what was called the "Cracker
Mafia," with operations spanning central Florida.
Then there were the Italian Mafiosi, the Trafficante
family, steadily encroaching on Wall's Tampa turf. Days of
reckoning and nights of retribution were already common in
Tampa, where from 1928 to 1959 (known locally as the Era
of Blood), more than 25 gangland figures were gunned down.
Perhaps as many more became "food for the fishes."
So there were plenty of gangsters around Tampa in the
early 1950s, but this Sporty Rey, he was an insurance man,
and that's all he was. He was just a guy with a pencil thin
mustache, a debit book, and a pretty wife shy to the point of
being misperceived by the neighbors as conceited or snobbish.
She wasn't. Sporty wasn't in the rackets either, at least not
yet.
Weekdays Sporty would slide into his shiny Buick and
disappear up Swan, turn on Nebraska and then go who
knows where. Folks out in Temple Terrace and Brandon
knew where. See, Sporty worked the small towns and mostly
poorer neighborhoods in the area the groves, the turpentine
woods, some of the cattle ranches or sawmills. In the towns,
he'd park up a narrow street in the shade and walk door-to-
door collecting on small insurance policies he'd sold. Most
were burial premiums, so maybe he collected a dollar or so
a month at each stop. It was a volume business, and Sporty
stayed on the move.
But there was an older black woman over in Brandon who
was one of his favorites. A large, moon-faced woman with
an easy laugh, she shared her deep, abiding faith whenever
she spoke. Sipping a glass of sweet tea on her front porch was
about as close to church as Sporty Rey ever got. They were
friends. They never said so, but they were.
Her name was Emma Jakes. Emma was the first person
Sporty informed that his wife had left him. On a recent
spring morning, while a neighbor leaned into his push
mower, Ilene Rey stood very erect out on her front porch in


Vrbys 01' p
".i M, Milff -, '


a black, sleeveless dress and a
small suitcase at her feet. When
the neighbor looked up again,
she was gone. The roof of a
yellow cab disappeared behind
a line of hedge. There'd been
no argument, no indiscretion
discovered, and no note. At
least that's what Sporty told
Emma. Emma offered Sporty
comfort while her own beloved
husband lay gasping with each
labored breath in the dark heat
of the house behind them.
The next month, Sporty got around to telling Emma he
now had more than insurance to sell. Bolita tickets were
stashed in his account book. Emma eyed Sporty with
caution. Then she had a confession of her own. With her
husband out of work and her own health failing, hard labor
was impossible. She couldn't continue to make the insurance
payment on her husband's policy. As for buying a bolita
ticket, "Nobody really wins but them bolita bankers," Emma
sighed, "and the devil, he's the biggest banker of them all."
Months passed. Sporty never missed his regular visit with
Emma. They talked. It was a game between them to forecast
the next rain. It hadn't rained in a long time. They never
again spoke of insurance or the numbers, though. And this
was probably a good thing.
In the basic bolita game, 100 small numbered balls were
placed into a bag and mixed thoroughly. Bets were taken on
which number would be drawn. There were many variations
on this theme and many different games. Bets were typically
small and sometimes sold well in advance. Fact is, most
games were rigged. Sometimes extra balls of a given number
were included. Sometimes certain balls weren't in the bag
at all. Some games cheated by including balls filled with
lead that sank to the bottom of the bag, improving the
odds on those numbers. Sometimes selected balls were iced
beforehand, so they were cold and easy for the selector to find
by touch. Anyway, there have always been as many tricks as
games.
In Sporty's time, the biggest game was out of Cuba.
Somewhere in Havana was a rack of one hundred ivory balls,
each with a number laid sequentially in a mahogany rack. All
the numbers were there to see. The balls were then gathered
out of the rack and dropped into a black velvet bag. The bag
was shaken vigorously and flung about until tossed finally to
a "catcher," one of the onlookers. The catcher would isolate a
single ball and, with the aid of a knife, slit the bag to extract
the ball bearing the winning number.
Back across the Florida Straits, some five hundred miles
away in a small cabin on a lake out in the orange groves,
Sporty and a bespectacled associate, Ambrose Endecott,
hovered around a short-wave radio. Endecott was a locally
respected man with a large grove and small grocery on
the highway, but he'd fallen on hard times and desperate
measures. Together they listened to a broadcast of the Cuban
National Lottery. The winning number would soon be


Illustration by Alexander Key
announced, and Rey would translate. It was Endecott's task
to check the "hit" or winning number against the tickets
purchased for that game.
A bolita operation took four individuals, each performing
a particular function: the "operator" or banker who financed
the operation; the "writer" who sold the tickets; the "pick-up"
man who brought the tickets in from the writers. He'd put
them in a paper bag and drop them off at a designated spot
made known to the "checker."
Each Saturday afternoon Endecott would retrieve the bag
of tickets from above the false ceiling in the privy behind
his store. On this hot August evening, Sporty and Endecott
leaned toward the short wave listening for the winning
numbers. The two men didn't know it, but elsewhere Charlie
Wall's wife had just come home to find Charlie dead on the
floor of their bedroom, his throat slashed, skull fractured and
his face a bloody pulp.
As the short wave crackled, the door to the isolated
cabin suddenly crashed in. Down in Havana the catcher
had not made the slit in the bag before machine gun blasts
riddled the interior of the cabin. Then it was quiet. Even the
screeching of startled cranes rising from the lake outside
went silent.
Some days later, a burly man with a crew cut ambled
up the front steps of Emma Jakes' place. It was about the
same time of day Sporty usually came by. Emma watched
the stranger through the screened door. He was sweating
profusely and mopping his bald head with a handkerchief.
"Mrs. Jakes," he said, "I'm the fellow took Sporty Rey's
place."
She remained secluded behind the screen door and didn't
speak.
"I'm sorry for your loss, Mrs. Jakes, on your husband. I
brung you his death benefit." He extended an envelope from
his shirt pocket.
"I didn't pay that. Had to drop it," she replied softly.
"No'um it was paid in full, 100%, Mrs. Jakes. This here
check is yours. This one, too," he said while extracting a
second envelope from the same pocket.
"What would that be?" she asked with a tremulous voice.
"Sporty Rey's, Mrs. Jakes. It's a good bit more than the
other; I didn't know if you knew you was named?"
It began to rain.

me of my youth, back when I was sailing
under the old skull and crossbones; times best
drowned in the black sea of forgetfulness.
You see, I can testify there's no peace at the
bottom of a keg of ale, and no joy in double
dealing. There's no treasure hidden in a chest
full of selfish desire, and rest is sparse for a
lad heading to the high seas with a shady
assortment of mutinous scallywags.
Thanks to Jesus I've hoisted a new flag
now. Heath has too. We're both sailing with
the King's royal fleet now. The Lord has since
bestowed upon us great honor and laden our
ships with much precious cargo, including
a fine dependable Christian crew. We've
set sail for the promise land and we plan to
plot our course through these choppy waters
according to His Majesty's Charts; the Bible.
Maybe the real story on my vacation
this year is rooted in the love of God. For
example, my ten year old Kailey so highly
valued the ring which symbolized her parents
bond, that she cried when I lost it. That
touched me. Heath's friend Mike, whose
family had come along, rushed over to mark
the spot for me when I dropped it. He didn't
cave with the temptation to be the hero and
dive for it himself; he simply stood there
unwavering; unselfishly assuming the role as
an anchor. For well over an hour he remained
still until I finally insisted he relent. This was


time taken out of his vacation, and he barely
even knew me. That touched me. Our wives;
Angie, Mindy, and Ann managed our huge
gaggles of kids cheerfully without making
any of us walk the plank. (Though I believe
my name may've come up for a vote a couple
of times.) They didn't touch me, and that
touched me.
Hopefully you're focus is not on the
tarnishing treasures of this shipwrecked
world, because I can tell you, they'll fade
quicker than the whisper that leads you
down to a shallow grave. Why don't you
snap out of it like Heath and I did? It's not
too late. Give your life to Jesus and set sail for
the promise land with us! I'd be honored to
serve alongside you. In fact, I've been praying
that God would remove your eye patch so
that you could see clearly. (The eyes of your
understanding being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of His calling, and
what the riches of the glory of His inheritance
in the saints, Ephesians 1:18 KJV).
Oh, and don't worry about Angie and
I. I talked to a guy at work whose cousin's
hairdresser plays bingo with the receptionist
for a bankruptcy lawyer, and he's pretty sure
we're probably still married.

NED's Yo-yo Motivates BES

Students


Would you have ever thought that a
yo-yo could motivate students to try hard,
encourage their friends, and do their best
work? If not, then you need to see the
NED show! The NED show came to
Bronson Elementary School to motivate
our students to do their best at all times!
The entertainment of the NED show came
from watching many yo-yo tricks, along
with hearing the story of NED and how he
became a motivating young man.
"N" in NED stands for Never Give Up!!
While completing various yoyo tricks, the
NED representative explained how NED
never gives up when he is working on
something, no matter how challenging it
may be!
"E" stands for Encourage Others, no
matter who they are! As an encouraging
person, you can make a difference in
someone's life. Your encouragement could
be the difference in whether someone
believes in themselves or not.
Finally, "D" stands for Do Your Best!
Without doing your best, you will not
accomplish your goals, and the NED show
gave examples of how doing your best will
help you be successful in all aspects of life.


In addition to the NED show, Bronson
Elementary students were also part of a
presentation courtesy of Central Florida
College by "Singers of United Lands".
Within this singing performance, not only
were students exposed to various music
genres, but they were also informed about
different cultures such as what life is like in
Canada, Columbia, Africa, and Australia.
During this performance students interacted
with the musicians through singing lyrics to
the songs presented, as well as participating
in mock celebrations to demonstrate how the
different cultures celebrate in their country.
These are just 2 ways that Bronson
Elementary School helped to motivate their
students, not only for the FCAT assessment
happening this week, but also to help them
see how their endeavors now, can help them
become a successful person in the future.
These presentations are just one way to bring
in different opportunities to our students
that they would otherwise not be exposed
to. Bronson Elementary School is dedicated
to thinking out of the box to encourage their
students both in and out of school!

Do your children long to spend their summer
days in the great outdoors?
Then it's time to sign them up for the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp. The
facility is located in the Ocala National Forest,
and registration for the 2011 summer sessions
has already begun.
The summer camp is for boys and girls,
ages 9-15, and focuses on fish and wildlife
conservation, outdoor skills and firearm safety.
This year, the camp offers six one-week sessions
beginning June 19.
The camp's primary goal is to help children
become conservation-minded and good
stewards of our fish and wildlife resources. They
learn these skills and values through fun and
educational, hands-on activities such as fishing,
canoeing, swimming, hiking, archery and many
other outdoor programs.
Tuition is still only S295 per camper per week
and includes lodging, food, program materials
and instruction. Each week-long session is
divided into four groups, based on individual

skills, wilderness outdoor skills, and the new
and exciting angler's program.
For the camper who wants to take the state-
mandated hunter safety course, the hunter safety
group is the way to go.
The wilderness outdoor skills group will
experience several outdoor adventures, including
an overnight primitive camping trip and hiking
on the Florida Trail. Before leaving base camp,
campers prepare for the experience by learning
the fundamentals of surviving in the wilderness,
orienteering, backpacking and preparing a
campsite.
The Ocala Conservation Center is 20 miles
east of Ocala on Lake Eaton in the heart of the
Ocala National Forest. The facilities are rustic,
yet comfortable, with air-conditioned cabins and
dining hall. The classrooms are fishing piers,
shooting ranges, nature trails, Lake Eaton and
the vast Ocala National Forest.

Ranch Sorting Preserves Cowboy

Lifestyle
On a family farm on the outskirts of Chiefland, the
western lifestyle is alive and well. Over fifty teams of
cowboys and cowgirls from as far away as New York as
well as many hometown ranch hands tested their skills in
a sport called Ranch Sorting, an event which tests the skill
of two cowboys mounted on horses against 11 head of wiley
cattle. The cattle must be sorted in order in 90 seconds or
less. If you think it sounds easy, think again. Ranch sorting
S uses the same skills used every day on the ranch. The ability
a. cof the horse and the cowboy to predict cattle behavior
is the ranch sorter's greatest asset. Teamwork is another
important part of a successful run. However, the greatest
part of this family event is the fun, fellowship and making
new friends who have the same passion of preserving the
cowboy lifestyle.
The Longhorn S Arena hosted the Ranch Sorting this
weekend, and it proved to be a great event with a lot of fun
and fellowship for all who attended. Bud Sharp, owner
of the farm said, "This is a great family activity. We have
Robin Cooley-Hardee, won her classification, something for everyone from the professional ranch sorters
Robin Cooley-Hardee, won her classification.
to beginners and even children. The greatest thing about this
event is that anyone can do it on any type of horse." Many breeds of horses competed this weekend, appaloosas, quarter
horses, and Florida Cracker horses, just to name a few. There are several classes in which cowboys and cowgirls compete,
from Open to Novice classes and everything in between. "With the different classes everyone has a chance to come out
and compete at their own level and possibly leave a winner. We even offer practice runs for anyone wanting to learn, or if
they prefer we will give a novice sorter a private lesson to get them involved. Once you try it it gets in your blood." Sharp
said. A jackpot is scheduled for April 23.

WES'Vocabulary Parade' sends 'PAWS'-itive


message about FCAT


Erupt! Onomatopoeia! Similar! Indigent! Miscellaneous!
Device! Sophisticated! Serendipitous! Cardiologist!
Environment! Myriad words from the upper level reading
list and from all subject areas "showed up" last Friday as
Williston Elementary students dressed as a vocabulary word
of their choice for the school's first-ever "Vocabulary Parade."
The event, organized by RtI coach Chloe Gabriel and PE
instructor Erin Owens, made the last school day a barrel
of laughs before the April 11th beginning of the statewide
FCAT testing!
Gabriel and Owens had distributed a list of these Tier 2
words from which the students could choose, or the students
could select one from a book they were reading or simply a
word they liked. The classroom teachers had to approve the
word. With their boundless creativity and just a few props,
the students with some assistance from their teachers -
made posters, sandwich boards or costumes to "be" the word
they had chosen.
At 1:00 the parade began! Marching around the blacktop,
the costumed participants could see everyone else's "word."
Prior to the parade, teachers had judged the most creative
representations for their classes, so those students paraded on
stage to "model" their word. The finale found four of the male
staff- Eric Childs, Ryan Sullivan, Steve Van Zwienen and



Log Cabin Quilters

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday April 8th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. We decided not to quilt the
Dresden Plate as we thought the black background would
fade. So, a Log Cabin quilt was put in and we know it will
be great when quilted.
Our porch is looking great with many new blooming
flowers. We still have several tables to fill so by next week
we should be finished. We do have some plants that we are
giving away cactus and others. They grow and don't freeze.
There are so many sick people that our prayer lists gets
bigger and bigger. We are having a lot of people out on
Thursday so we enjoy those who do come.
Thursday lunch was fried chicken, lots of deviled eggs,
noodles and garden sauce, bread, butter and a little more.

be consistent with anticipated new rules in Gulf federal Commission, linked from the April 6-7 meeting agenda. The


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) proposed several draft
rule amendments on Wednesday to further
enhance and protect Florida's permit fishery,
while also strengthening management of
the Florida pompano and African pompano
fisheries.
"Permit is a major recreational game fish
and a big reason why Florida is the 'Fishing
Capital of the World,'" said FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto. "We want to give permit,
Florida pompano and African pompano more
protection and increase the enforceability of our
current rules by extending our rules into federal
waters adjacent to Florida waters, where these
species are currently unregulated." Federal
waters extend beyond nine nautical miles from
shore in the Gulf of Mexico and three miles
from shore in the Atlantic Ocean.
In addition, the draft rule proposals would
create separate management strategies for the
three species and create two new management
areas for the harvest of permit. In South
Florida and the Florida Keys, permit is largely
a trophy and catch-and-release fishery. In other
areas of Florida, anglers catch permit from the
shore and they are more often kept as a food
fish.
To better manage permit for these different
uses, the FWC is proposing to create a Special
Permit Zone, which would include all state and
federal waters south of a line running due east
from Cape Florida and south of a line running
due west from Cape Romano.
The remainder of the state (north of these
lines) is another management zone, and the
rulings include a recreational slot size for
permit of 11-22 inches fork length and a daily
bag limit of two fish per person would apply,
with an allowance for one permit over 22 inches
in length. A vessel limit of two permit larger
than 22 inches in length also would apply.
Recreational anglers also would be allowed to
only use hook-and-line gear for permit, except
that spearing for permit would be allowed in
federal waters. No directed commercial harvest
for permit would be allowed, and a commercial
incidental bycatch trip limit of 100 fish with
nets that are targeting other species would


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) provided
a glimpse of the Florida outdoors to more
than 200 students attending the agency's
"Creating the Next Generation That Cares"
event in downtown Tallahassee Thursday,
April 7.
The courtyard between the old and new
Florida capitols housed a variety of interactive
displays to inspire youth to enjoy Florida's
natural resources and to learn to protect
them.
"This event is part of our renewed
commitment to help create the next
generation that cares about conservation,"
said Nick Wiley, executive director of the
FWC.
Increasingly, today's children are
disconnected from the outdoors. They devote
nearly eight hours a day to entertainment
media and media multitasking, according
to studies, while the number of youth who
spend time in traditional outdoor activities
continues to decline dramatically.
"By providing information and interactive
outdoor experiences to youth, Wiley said,


apply in areas outside of the above Special
Permit Zone.
The proposed rules would extend current
FWC Florida pompano recreational and
commercial gear and commercial trip and size
limits into federal waters, maintain the Florida
pompano recreational minimum size limit of
11 inches fork length, eliminate the 20-inch
Florida pompano maximum size limit, and
maintain the recreational daily bag limit of
six Florida pompano per person (no longer an
aggregate limit with permit). Current FWC
African pompano recreational and commercial
size and bag limits would also be extended into
federal waters, and spearfishing for African
pompano would be allowed in federal waters.
For stone crabs the FWC also proposed draft
rules that would extend its state management
regulations for stone crab into federal waters off
Florida.
Currently, the Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council has a federal fishery
management plan in place for stone crabs.
The Council recently voted to recommend
the repeal of this plan to NOAA Fisheries
Service (which has jurisdiction to manage stone
crabs in federal waters) because the stone crab
fishery is centered in Florida and the FWC
already plays a leading role in stone crab stock
assessments and management.
Most of the stone crab fishery occurs in
state waters off Florida, and existing federal
regulations for stone crab are the same as
the FWC's rules. NOAA Fisheries Service
intends to repeal the federal stone crab fishery
management plan before this fall's opening of
stone crab season on Oct. 15.
The proposed FWC rules also would
eliminate a federal form that would no longer
be required after repeal of the federal stone crab
plan and the rules would apply immediately
upon repeal of the federal stone crab fishery
management plan.
A final public hearing on these proposed
rules for permit and stone crabs will be held in
June, and more information is available online
at MyFWC.com/Commission, linked from the
April 6-7 meeting agenda.


"we hope to motivate them to care about
protecting the legacy of magnificent natural
resources that are unique to Florida and that
help fuel the state's economy."
At the event, one display featured a touch
tank of marine life; another offered kids a
chance to pretend to be a bear for a little
while and search for berries and bugs to cat.
Participants also had a chance to learn how to
cast a fishing line.
"Kids learned the names of bird and
animal species that are native to Florida and
created bird masks to mimic their favorites,"
said Jessica Basham, one of the FWC
coordinators.
The students got to see a baby alligator and
other reptiles and amphibians up close, as an
expert stood by to answer their questions.
There was a display of the law enforcement
vehicles and vessels the FWC uses to patrol,
protect and preserve Florida's woods and
waters, and one of the FWC's K-9 teams
demonstrated how it helps with different cases.

City of Chiefland City Commission Meeting March 28, 2011


The Chiefland City Commission met in Regular Session at City
Hall Mayor Pomeroy called the meeting to order at 6:00 P.M.
MEMBERS PRESENT: Teal Pomeroy, Mayor-Commissioner;
Teresa Barron, Vice Mayor-Commissioner; Frank Buie,
Commissioner; Sammy Cason, Commissioner; Rollin Hudson,
Commissioner.
MEMBERS ABSENT: None
ALSO PRESENT: Grady Hartzog, City Manager; Norm
Fugate, City Attorney; Robert Douglas, Police Chief; James
Harris, Fire Chief; Bill Hammond, Building and Zoning Official;
Laurie Copeland, Project Finance Coordinator.
Visitors:
Levy County SheriffJohnny Smith, Major Evan Sullivan, Lt.
Scott Anderson Status Report on Proposed Communication
Center Upgrade
Sheriff Smith said on February 21, 2011 the Levy County
Sheriffs office went live with mobile data terminals and silent
dispatch. At their last meeting the plan discussed was to hire four
additional dispatchers at a cost of $195,142 to meet the work load
demands of the agencies the Sheriffs office dispatches for. During
that meeting Chiefland representatives were told they would be
charged as the Sheriffs office could no longer sustain the cost to
provide dispatch service to all agencies. Since that meeting the
silent dispatch process was successfully implemented reducing
the work load for dispatchers. Sheriff Smith quoted the County's
first quarter budget has a deficit of $732,358 with only 1.2 million
dollars in reserves.
Sheriff Smith stated due to economic reasons he has decided
not to charge each agency for dispatching services at this time.
However, in order for the Sheriffs office to continue to dispatch
for each agency, as of October 1, 2011 each agency will be required
to update their laptop computers for silent dispatching. The vendor
chosen by the Levy County Sheriffs office is Beacon Software
Solutions who quoted a one time charge of $7,500 and $1,500
annual maintenance fee per agency for this program.
An Agreement for Dispatching Services contract was provided
by the Levy County Sheriff's office. Major Evan Sullivan explained
the silent dispatch process and dispatch status. He said the City of
Chiefland Police Department already has laptops with air cards.
Chiefland Police department will need E-Agent to allow officers
to run vehicle tags etc. The cost will be $750 per computer for the
first year then $120 per computer each year after. First year total is
$6,480 and the second year will be a little over $1,000. After some
discussion, Mayor Pomeroy said the City Commission will do what
they can to help. Mr. Hartzog asked what would happen if the City
of Chiefland didn't get on board with the silent dispatch program.
Major Sullivan said the Sheriffs office is responsible to receive
911 calls and Chiefland would determine where to send the call to
dispatch Chiefland officers.
John Kyle, Clay Pearson and Pastor George Kearns Request
to Use Delma Locke Park
Mr. Kyle, Mr. Pearson and Pastor Kearns asked to use the
Delrna Locke Park on May 21, 2011 for Christian-based
skateboarding demonstrations, dancing, music and fellowshipping.
Vice Mayor Barron made a motion to allow the church group to
use the Delma Locke Park on May 21st and the City for assist them
in anyway possible. Commissioner Buie seconded.
Motion passed 5-0.
Robert Beauchamp, Carr, Riggs and Ingram Annual Audit
Report
Mr. Beauchamp gave the details of the City's qualified audit
report. He said the City had a break-even 2010 budget year.
Commissioner Hudson moved to accept the audit report from
Carr Riggs and Ingram. Commissioner Cason seconded and the


motion passed 5-0.
Mr. Hartzog said he met with Mr. Beauchamp regarding the
necessary budget amendments and he suggested waiting until
August to do the amendments.
Mr. Beauchamp said with the impact fee expenses approved by
the City Commission and other expenses not budgeted, the City is
required to re-advertise its budget and it will be best to wait until
August to do this. Commissioners agreed.
Wayne Dasher
Mr. Dasher voiced a concern and complaint regarding the
pedestrian crosswalk on U.S. 19 at the Train Depot. After
some discussion Mr. Hartzog said he will contact the Florida
Department of Transportation about installing some type of
flashing crossing light.
City Manager Grady Hartzog
Water Conservation Month Proclamation
Commissioner Cason moved to adopt the Proclamation
designating April as Water Conservation Month. Vice Mayor
Barron seconded and the motion passed 5-0.
Mandatory Water Connection
On February 21, 2011 the City Commission requested the
mandatory water connection be reviewed by the Planning Board
and make a recommendation back to the Commission.
Mr. Hammond said the Planning Board reviewed FAC 9J-5 as
it relates to mandatory water hookup. They agreed the mandatory
connection met the requirements of FAC 9J--5 as a way to pay for
and maintain new water lines,
The Planning Board recommended language for Section 74-
150(a) listing an exception for an existing single family residence
located more than 300 feet from the property boundary line where
the water service is provided, however, if the property owner elects
not to hookup to the municipal water service the owner shall be
required to pay the minimum monthly water charge for a single
family residence in lieu of connecting to the water system.
Vice Mayor Barron asked how Mr. Pollock felt about the
recommendation. Mr. Hammond said he was concerned about
paying the $7.50 base fee but at the end of the Planning Board
meeting he was okay with the recommendation.
The general consensus of the Commission is to consider a draft
ordinance at the next meeting.
Police Chief Robert Douglas
No reports.
Fire ChiefJames Harris
Recognition of Firefighters
Mr. A.D. Goodman recognized Ami Marlett and Joleen Dudly
for passing the state firefighter certification class.
Fire Advisory Board
Chief Harris reported on the issues he and Vice Mayor Barron
are working on with the Fire Advisory Board.
Adamsville Community Church
Chief Harris commented on the incident involving the burning
of the Adamsville Community Church saying he received
permission from the Adamsville Cemetery Committee to burn


their church.
City Attorney Norm D.
Fugate
No reports.
Old Business
None
Commissioners New
Business
Commissioner Buie said
several people have asked him
about a grant for a sidewalk to


Walmart. Mr. Hartzog said the Walmart sidewalk is not one of the
fundable sidewalks on the priority list at this time.
Vice Mayor Barron asked if the Commission is willing to
send a letter to Governor Scott supporting Abraham Blitch
for the appointment of the vacant seat on the Board of County
Commissioners since he almost won that race. No action was taken
by the Commission.
Commissioner Hudson asked when the paving project will begin.
Mr. Hartzog announced the paving project began today at N.E. 1st
Street and N.E. 1st Avenue.
Mayor Pomeroy asked Commissioners if they-are in favor of
purchasing a hog that did not make weigh-in at the Levy County
Livestock Fair. Commissioners and staff agreed to participate.
Public Comment

Correspondence
Bryon Horner, Utility Audit Company, Inc.
Mr. Fugate said Mr. Horner, representing SunState Federal
Credit Union through correspondence, asks the City to address
a letter to Central Florida Electric Cooperative authorizing an
exemption from the tax for the credit union. Mr. Fugate said it
appears SunState Federal Credit Union is exempt but recommends
Central Florida Electric Cooperative submit a letter instead of the
City.
Tri County Hospital
Mr. Hartzog said Mr. Frank Schupp said the hospital will be
built and the company is still working on the bond issue.
New Industrial Park Building
Mr. Hartzog asked Commissioners for consent to hire a local
vendor to install the firewall partition between the two spaces.
Mr. Hartzog also asked the Commission to consider a rental fee of
$3.00 per square foot per month for each rental space, $1,500 per
month for both.
Vice Mayor Barron commented on the different colored paint on
the Industrial Park buildings. She asked if Commissioners would
consider painting the existing older buildings to match the new
building. Mr. Hartzog said City workers will complete the electric
in the new building.
Vice Mayor Barron moved to allow Mr. Hartzog to get local
vendor quotes to finish the inside of the new building. Commission
Cason seconded and the motion passed 5-0.
Commissioners agreed for Mr. Hartzog to obtain quotes for
painting the two older Industrial Park buildings.
Approval of the Regular Meeting Minutes March 14, 2011
Commissioner Cason moved to approve the minutes from the
March 14, 2011 Commission meeting. Commissioner Buie second

Found Photo


While Alex Bauder was at a baseball game one of his
teachers said his mom, substitute teacher Kathleen Bauder,
needed to check out the Levy County Journal because their
pictures were in the paper. Kathleen called to tell us the
picture was a shot of the mom and son duo at Family
Literacy Night at Bronson Elementary School where Alex
attended in 2003. You did a good job Kathleen as Alex
graduates this year from Bronson High School on June
6th and you both made it. Congratulations to this team of
hard workers in our great community of Levy County.
