Battery on Elderly Leads to Arrest in Williston


Jaree Stone, 30, from Williston, was arrested on
April 18, 2011 for battery on the elderly, possession
of narcotics without a prescription, threatening a
public servant and petit theft.
The domestic dispute began at NE 192 Ave.
in Williston. It was reported that Stone threw an
ice tray and pushed the elderly victim. During
the altercation the victim attempted to call 911,
but Stone pulled the phone line from the wall
preventing her from calling law enforcement.
The victim stated that she was not injured, but
feared Stone would hurt her since Stone has a


drug problem. The victim stated that Stone left the
residence, but returned shortly before midnight
beating on the door demanding money. The
victim refused to open the door even though Stone
threatened to break down the door. The victim was
able to leave the residence and drove to Williston
Police Department to report the incident.
Deputies then attempted to locate Stone but she
was not at her residence. Around 1:00 a.m. the
Communication Center received a call regarding
a female knocking on doors, asking for money in
the area of the Williston Middle School. Deputies


located Stone at the Kangaroo Gas Station and she
was arrested for domestic battery on the elderly.
The investigation revealed that Stone had 33 pills
of Alprazolam that was not contained in a properly
marked prescription bottle. Upon Stone being
patted down for other weapons or contraband Stone
threatened deputies by stating that someone should
blow your head off.
Stone was additionally charged with stealing
$58.26 dollars worth of gas from the Discount
Food Mart.

On April 8, Gary "Andy" Sullivan, 34, called the
Levy County Sheriffs Office and reported that he
found his girlfriend, Summer Lynn Keller, hanging
from a tree at their residence in Trenton. Sullivan
stated that his girlfriend got into an argument with a
relative of his on the phone earlier in the day, and that
he and Keller then argued over the call with Sullivan's
relative.
Sullivan alleged that after his argument with Keller
he spoke to a friend on the phone. He said he started
looking for Keller, but was unable to find her. He then
turned on the porch light, Sullivan said, and saw Keller
standing by a tree. Sullivan said he walked over to
Keller and found her hanging from the tree. Sullivan
claimed he ran back to the residence and retrieved a
knife to cut Keller down and then called 911.


Through the testimony of witnesses, Sullivan's
inconsistent statements, Medical Examiner's Office
reports and the forensic evidence, the Sheriffs Office
determined that the crime scene does not support
Sullivan's statements. According to forensic evidence,
the alleged instrument used to hang Keller was not
the cause of her death. The Medical Examiner did not
disclose the murder weapon.
On April 19 Sullivan was arrested and charged with
second degree murder. The suspect is now in the Levy
CountyJail.
Sullivan is well known by law enforcement and
has a violent history. On April 16, 2008 Sullivan
was sentenced to the State of Florida Department
of Corrections for aggravated battery with a deadly
weapon.

Motorcycle Crash Leaves One in Critical


Condition, Passenger Dead at Scene
Motorcyclists traveling west on Alt US 27A at NE 101 Court just east
of Bronson last Tuesday night struck a Toyota 4-wheel drive crossing the
highway in front of them, causing a fatal crash. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, the motorcycle struck the left side of the Toyota. James .P
Parrott, 61, and his passenger, 24-year-old Crystal-Lynn Parrott, both of
Ontario, Canada, were thrown from the motorcycle. The driver landed in
the right lane and the passenger in the left of US Alt 27. The motorcycle
came to rest partially in the left and right lane. Another vehicle, driven
by a Cedar Key woman, steered to miss debris from the crash and ran
over Crystal-Lynn, whom she could not see on the road in the dark.
Franklin Tennant, 61, of Archer, then struck the motorcycle. The truck
Franklin was driving overturned several times and came to rest on its
roof.
Crystal-Lynn Parrot was pronounced dead at the scene. Jeremy Parrott,
in critical condition, and Tennant, in serious condition, were transported
to Shands at UF in Gainesville.

Sheriff Juggles Positions/Commissioners


Vote to Charge Inmates for Their Keep


By Roz Tartaglione
Contributing Staff Writer

The Levy County Sheriffs Office asked and received permission from
the Board of Levy County Commissioners to amend the county's current
budget to reflect a shift of salaries for two open positions in the Levy
CountyJail to fund additional dispatchers needed for the Sheriffs Office
Communications Center. The vote to approve the request to amend the
county's current budget was unanimous.
SheriffJohnny Smith has been telling the board that the
Communications Center has been severely understaffed for some
time. To alleviate some of the problem, the Sheriff implemented a
new software-based silent dispatch system that requires county fire
and emergency services' agencies and municipalities to install mobile
communications devices, such as laptops, and/or custom software in
their police, fire and emergency services vehicles. The plan the Sheriff's
Office implemented earlier this year, can handle some of the more routine
dispatch duties now shouldered by current dispatchers in the center, but
the funding for equipping county fire and emergency medical services and
municipalities would come from those agencies, rather than the county
budget.
In a meeting with Chiefland City Commissioners last month, Sheriff
Smith explained that the city, as well as Inglis and Cedar Key, would be
charged an initial $7,500 fee for the software, purchase and installation
of the equipment and another software package, such as E-agent in their
emergency response vehicles, or be left to their own dispatching devices.
The City of Williston already has a dispatch system for their fire and
police agencies.
The salaries for the two open positions, a corrections officer and
assistant, will be used to hire dispatchers for the Sheriffs Office
Communications Center. The Jail will lose those positions for this year.
The reassignment of the funds would only be for the rest of the Jail's
current budget cycle, Major Mike Sheffield Director of Corrections said.
A decrease in the number of inmates housed in the Jail's pod allowed
the director of corrections to close one of the Jail's pods, or holding
^ %(


centers, which eliminates
the need for that
corrections' position, at
least for the short term.
The decrease in inmate
population has been seen
across all of Florida this
year. "This is a state-wide
trend," Major Sheffield said.
The trend has occurred over
the past several months, he
explained.
When asked why the
inmate population has
dropped while the crime
rate has increased, Major
rate has increased, Major Major Evan Sullivan Addresses the
Sheffield told commissioners Chiefland City Commision about the
that judges were sending LCSO's plan to implement silent dispatch
more of the convicted county wide.
to prison rather than
remanding them to state jails.
At the same BOCC meeting, Major Sheffield requested that the
county adopt a fee for housing jail inmates that would be assessed initially
after the first appearance of the individual before a judge, and then, if
remanded to the jail rather than released, the inmate would be charged an
additional $1 per day until his or her case is decided.
The initial assessment would be $20. The initial fee and the per diem
charge would remain as a lien against the inmate for a period of three
years, rather than a condition of his or her release.
Major Sheffield explained that the plan is similar to other counties,
as based on Florida Statute 951.033, and would generate much needed
revenue to fund jail operations, considering the state of the county's
current budget shortfall.
The request for the inmate subsistence fee was also unanimously
approved by the boIrd Tuesday morning.

Yearwood
In late January Dixie County deputies
responded to a disturbance on SE 905
Street in Old Town where they encountered
Richard L.Yearwood. Yearwood was armed
with a shovel and as deputies attempted to
quell the situation, Yearwood attacked one of
the deputies with the shovel. At that point
Yearwood was shot twice by another officer
arriving on the scene when he refused to stop
swinging the shovel and put it down.
Upon Yearwood's release from Shands
Hospital at UF, he left the state of Florida
in an apparent attempt to avoid arrest.
Yearwood was indicted by a Dixie County
Grand Jury for the January assault involving
the deputies and an arrest warrant was issued
charging him with Aggravated Assault on
a Law Enforcement Officer with a Deadly
Weapon and Resisting an Officer with
Violence.
Subsequent investigative leads revealed
that Yearwood was in Los Angeles County,
California. The Dixie County Sheriffs
Office then contacted the U.S. Marshal's
Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force and
requested assistance in capturing Yearwood.

The

On Friday afternoon, April 15th, the
Northwest Pacific Task Force was able to
apprehend Richard Yearwood and arrest
him on the Dixie County warrants involving
the January assault. Yearwood is currently
being held in the Los Angeles County Jail
awaiting extradition to Florida where he will
be arraigned on the charges.
Dixie County law enforcement has
encountered Yearwood in the past for DUI,
resisting arrest and refusing to sign a citation,
disorderly intoxication, driving without a
license and driving while license suspended.
The Florida Department of Corrections'
records show he spent 2 years in prison for
robbery and battery on a law enforcement
officer.

Bronson Couple


Arrested for


Sale of Drugs



------- ---.


Wanda Boyd Jerry Boyd
The Drug Task Force which consists of agents from the
Levy County Sheriffs Office and the Chiefland Police
Department arrested Wanda Boyd and her husband Jerry
Boyd after purchasing oxydodone at their residence at 330
Hardee Street in Bronson.
In March 2011 DTF agents purchased oxycodone
on several occasions at the 330 Hardee Street address.
On Thursday April 14, 2011 agents had the two under
surveillance and had information that they may be driving a
stolen truck. That afternoon agents located the Boyds driving
a Toyota truck. A traffic stop was conducted at SR-500 and
CR-32.
During the traffic stop Jerry Boyd refused Agent Barrera's
commands and resisted arrest with violence. During the
confrontation Boyd was physically restrained and placed on
the ground. The vehicle was reported stolen two years ago
by the Bradenton Police Department. Boyd was treated and
released from Tri County Hospital and booked into the Levy
County Jail.
Agents then went to 330 Hardee Street and executed a
drug search warrant. During the search agents located a
semi-automatic pistol, ammunition, approximately 5 grams of
powder cocaine and prescription pills.
Jerry Boyd is a convicted felon and he was charged with
grand theft auto, resisting arrest with violence, possession
of a firearm by a convicted felon, three counts of possession
of ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine,
possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a drug
dwelling. Wanda Boyd was arrested for 5 counts of sale
of a controlled substance within 1000 feet of a recreational
facility, 5 counts of possession of a controlled substance with
the intent to sell, possession of cocaine with the intent to sell,
6 counts of possession of a controlled substance without a
prescription and drug paraphernalia.


Dixie County Deputies Apprehend

Old Town Man for Levy County

Burglaries
In the early morning hours of April 10th, Sheriffs deputies responded to a domestic
disturbance offofNE 743 St. in Old Town. Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the
complainant and several witnesses who were present. Deputies learned there had been a
disturbance at the given address with an individual identified as Jeromy Smith, 22 years of
age, from Old Town. During the course of their investigation at the scene, deputies were
presented with several bags of miscellaneous electronics equipment and personal effects of a
Levy County resident. Deputies then made contact with the Levy resident who went outside
to her car where she found that it had been burglarized. At that point she was instructed to
contact the Levy County Sheriffs Office to report the burglary and theft. While she was
doing so, Dixie County communications officers sent a teletype of the inventory that had
been recovered in Dixie County. After receiving this information, Levy County investigators
asked that Dixie County deputies attempt to locate Smith in regards to this burglary.
Approximately three hours later at 6:30 a.m., deputies located Smith back at the residence
and upon their arrival Smith attempted to flee. Deputies were able to apprehend Smith
without incident and he was arrested and transported to the Dixie County Jail for Resisting
an Officer without Violence. While still incarcerated in the Dixie CountyJail on the above
charge, Levy County investigators were able to obtain a warrant on Smith for'the car burglary
and grand theft.
On April 14th, Smith was arrested on the Levy County charges of Burglary of a
Conveyance and Grand Theft.

Taxes and Politics


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


Someone once said that
taxes are the price we pay for
civilization. That may have '
been true when he said it, .
but today taxes are mostly .
the price we pay so that
politicians can play Santa
Claus and get reelected.
That's not the worst of it.
We may think of taxes as
just a source of government
revenue. But tax rates are a
big political statement on the
left, whether they bring in any revenue or not.
For more than 80 years, the political left has opposed
what they call "tax cuts for the rich." But big cuts in very
high tax rates ended up bringing in more revenue to the
government in the Coolidge, Kennedy, Reagan and Bush
43 administrations. This included more-- repeat, more-- tax
revenue from people in the highest income brackets than
before.
That was because high-income people took their money
out of tax shelters like municipal bonds and invested
where they could get a higher rate of return, after these
returns were not being taxed as much. This has happened
repeatedly, over so many decades, in administrations of both
parties, that you might think this would put an end to the
"tax cuts for the rich" demagoguery.
But the same rhetoric that "progressives" like Senator Bob
La Follette used against tax cuts in the 1920s is still going


strong in the 21st century. When you point out to today's
"progressives" that "the rich" paid more total tax revenue
to the government after what were called "tax cuts for the
rich," that doesn't make a dent.
After all, "the rich" paid that larger sum of taxes only
because their incomes had risen. Their paying a higher
share of all taxes doesn't matter to the "progressives," who
see high tax rates as a way to take a bigger bite out of the
incomes of higher-income people, not just provide more
revenue to the government.
Tax rates are meant to make an ideological statement and
promote class-warfare politics, not just bring in revenue.
There has been much indignation on the left over the
recent news that General Electric paid no taxes, despite
its large amounts of profit. But another way of looking at
this is that high tax rates on paper do not mean high tax
revenues for the government.
The liberal answer to budget deficits is almost always
to raise tax rates on "the rich," in order to bring in more
revenue. The fact that higher tax rates have often brought in
less revenue than before is simply ignored.
Our corporate tax rates are higher than in many other
countries. That may have something to do with the fact that
many American corporations (including General Electric)
expand their operations in many other countries, providing
jobs-- and tax revenues-- in those other countries.
But high-tax ideologues don't see it that way. They would
be horrified at the idea that we ought to lower our corporate
tax rates, just so that more American businesses would do
more of their business at home, providing more Americans
with much-needed jobs.
To ideologues, that is just a cop-out from the class-
warfare battle. It is far more important to them to score


their political points against "the rich" or "Wall Street"
than that a few million more Americans out of work would
be able to find jobs.
The idealism of the left is a very selfish idealism. In their
war against "the rich" and big business, they don't care how
much collateral damage there is to workers who end up
unemployed.
It so happens that many-- if not most-- of those called
"the rich" are not rich and many, if not most, of those
called "the poor" are not poor. They are people who happen
to be in a particular part of the income stream as of a given
moment in their lives when statistics are collected.
Internal Revenue Service data show that the income of
people who were in the lowest income tax bracket in 1996
rose by 91 percent by 2005. But people in the "top one
percent" had their incomes drop by 26 percent in those
same years.
There is nothing complicated about this. Most people
simply start at the bottom when they are young and their
pay rises as they get more experience. Most people in the
top one percent are there for only a single year when they
happen to have a spike in income. They too are not an
enduring class.
The time is long overdue to start thinking about taxes
as sources of revenue, not as ways of making political
statements.

New Media Catches Obama

Bribing the Fourth Estate


By Howard Rich

For years, America's left-leaning
mainstream media outlets have belittled
and rebuked members of the new media -
questioning their credibility, impugning their
integrity and assigning all manner of self-
serving motivations to their contributions to
the marketplace of ideas.
In the immediate aftermath of the tragic
Tucson shooting earlier this year, the legacy
press took it a step further essentially
implying that the new media was complicit in
the attack on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords by
virtue of the "climate of hate" it helped create
in America.
Obviously, the facts of the Tucson case
quickly (and completely) debunked this
theory but not before a parade of liberal
talking heads had spewed a torrent of reckless
vitriol on new media outlets and the First
Amendment freedom they exercise.
Fast-forward three months to April 6, when
reporter Matthew Boyle of The Daily Caller
published a report outlining the details of
Barack Obama's socialized medicine slush
fund.
Boyle's report like hundreds of
investigative pieces published every day by
new media outlets was in and of itself
a rebuke of many of the criticisms leveled
against Internet journalists by the legacy
press. Not only did Boyle accurately relate
new primary source material including
excerpts from public documents and
Congressional testimony but he also
sought, received and published the response
of those with conflicting views regarding this
information. On top of that, he presented the
facts sans any editorial commentary.
In other words, Boyle's investigative report
was every bit as "pure" journalistically as
something you would read in The Washington
Post or watch on the CBS Evening News.
Which brings us to the substance of Boyle's
article the hundreds of thousands of
dollars that The Post and CBS have received
from the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program
(ERRP), an Obamacare slush fund that has
arbitrarily doled out nearly $2 billion to select
corporations, government pension funds and
labor unions within the last year.
The very existence of this fund which
has been touted as a means of protecting
health care coverage prior to the onset of
Obama's unconstitutional socialized medicine
law highlights the dangers inherent in


giving government additional control over the
health care marketplace. Not only is this fund
rife with corruption and mismanagement
- as evidenced by these payments to media
outlets that are supposed to objectively cover
Obamacare but its borrowed billions have
failed to accomplish their objective.
For example, last October Minnesota-based
3M announced that it would no longer offer
health insurance to its 23,000 employees
thanks to the passage of Obamacare.
Meanwhile Chicago-based Boeing is one
of several large corporations now requiring
its employees to pay higher deductibles and
copayments as a result of the new law. So
much for Obama's repeated promises that no
one would lose their coverage and that health
care costs would go down, right?
Yet despite these failures, taxpayers are
still subsidizing a pre-Obamacare bailout
providing grants to artificially prop up
coverage that will eventually be covered by
new entitlement spending (assuming the law
isn't struck down or repealed first).
Not surprisingly, the mainstream media
has written very little about ERRP. In fact, a
follow-up report on the blog Hot Air revealed
that both The Washington Post and CBS
have completely ignored problems with the
slush fund secretly bankrolling health care for
its early retirees.
According to Hot Air, a search for ERRP
on The Post website last week revealed
nothing. A search for the full name of
the slush fund revealed only one article (a
column that referenced a new media report,
ironically). Meanwhile on the CBS website, a
search for ERRP also produced no entries -
while a search for the full name of the slush
fund returned only one entry, a link to the
Obama administration's health care reform
website.
"It looks like the Post and CBS aren't
interested in covering the fact that ERRP was
grossly underfunded and wound up failing to
protect existing coverage," Hot Air noted.
American poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox once
wrote that "to sin by silence when we should
protest makes cowards of men."
It apparently makes cowards of the media,
too although a compelling case could be
made that these mainstream outlets were paid
for their silence. Fortunately for taxpayers, the
new media was there to uncover and expose
the truth regarding this corruption.

America, the Dependent


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


So much for the new era of fiscal
responsibility. The federal government's
dependency drones have been spared the
chopping block. After vowing to eliminate
funding for President Obama's bloated $6
billion AmeriCorps social justice army, House
Republicans retreated -- and will shrink
the AmeriCorps budget by a minuscule 6.7
percent.
Politicians originally sold AmeriCorps as
an alternative to big government -- a program
to "renew the ethic of civic responsibility
and the spirit of community throughout the
United States." With bipartisan support, the
program has morphed into an all-purpose
progressive slush fund. Instead of reining in
the national service boondoggle, Washington
has turned taxpayer-subsidized helping
hands into a legion of Nanny State handout
helpers. Goodbye, AmeriCorps. Hello,
FoodStampCorps.
Yes, across the Internet, the feds are
recruiting AmeriCorps VISTA ("Volunteers
in Service to America") workers to apply for
jobs as publicists for the welfare state. Their
mission: to sign up as many people to federal
food stamp rolls as possible. Because, you
know, the record-breaking 12 million that
have been added since Obama took office is
apparently not good enough.
Here's a typical job ad in Boston:
"AMERICORPS VISTA: FOOD STAMP
COORDINATOR (INTERNSHIP)
Through this project, the Elderly Commission
will be able to provide information, assistance
and support to senior citizens of Boston in
applying for food stamps. Develop a full
knowledge of the Food Stamp program and
application process. Assist seniors in senior
housing and community centers to fill out
Food Stamp applications; assist seniors with
gathering necessary proofs together for
applications; follow up with the Department
of Transitional Assistance to ensure seniors
receive awarded benefits. Recruit volunteers
to be trained on the application of the Food
Stamp program."
In New York, Philadelphia and a total of
30 sites across the country, AmeriCorps and
the Department of Agriculture are funding
the "National Anti-Hunger and Opportunity
Corps" to "increase access to food stamps."
National Affairs managing editor Meghan
Clyne reports that the administration is
roping in left-wing churches to aggressively
promote food stamps. With institutional
support from first lady Michelle Obama, the
FoodStampCorps will train church members
to apply for food stamps after religious services;
and "'encourage eligible families to enroll
their children in (government-subsidized)
school meal programs'; if organizations operate
day-care or after-school programs, they are
advised to pursue reimbursement for meals
and snacks through the Child and Adult Care
Food Program (a federally funded, state-
administered welfare program). Places of
worship are asked to serve as feeding sites for


the Summer
Food Service
Program
-- another
federally
funded, state-
run welfare
project."
With
billions poured
into the welfare ,
state at the
local, state and national levels and enrollment
at an all-time high, why should taxpayers
be underwriting make-work jobs for future
Democratic flacks-in-training? Shouldn't
it already be the job of the vast network of
existing social services and welfare agencies to
publicize and assist food-stamp applicants?
More troublesome: AmeriCorps workers
are themselves being encouraged to sign up for
food stamp benefits -- giving new meaning to
"hands-on" (or rather, "hands-out") experience.
An AmeriCorps blogger provided a
thorough advice manual on working the
system: "Plenty of jobs come with perks,"
the worker wrote. "For some these come in
the form of company cars, dental insurance,
or a spending allowance. For VISTAs, it's
food stamps." The step-by-step guide tells
AmeriCorps workers: "If you apply for food
stamps after you become an AmeriCorps
VISTA member, you will have a decreased
food stamp allotment. So if you're debating
applying, you should do it now."
Another AmeriCorps tip for those preparing
for their in-person eligibility interview with
food stamp administrators: "These social
service agencies are only open during regular
business hours, so you will probably have
to take the day off (some sites don't count
it against your 20 vacation/sick days)." Oh,
and don't forget to "bring a book." Says the
wise AmeriCorps welfare-system expert:
"While food stamps are handled by a different
agency in every state, they all generally have
a reputation that mirrors that of the DMV:
too little staff, too high demand, and wait
times that can border on extreme. While my
own wait was only three hours, I've heard
some VISTAs waiting as long as eight. Yes, I
know you may have an appointment, but that
doesn't necessarily mean they're going to see
you at that time. So bring a book, an iPod,
that screenplay you've been tinkering with --
whatever, because you're going to be waiting a
while."
Make no mistake: Americans are suffering
as a result of this profligate administration's
job-stifling and anti-economic growth policies.
No one questions the need for a basic safety net
to care for those most in need of help. But the
community-organizer-in-chief is squandering
billions on failed Alinsky-ite rackets that are
geared toward ever-expanding service not to
the individual, but to the insatiable state.

On behalf of the entire Levy County Fair Association, I want to sincerely thank all
those citizens of Levy County (and elsewhere) who helped make the 2011 Levy County
Fair such a success. As an organization with no paid staff, we especially appreciated all
of those who so cheerfully volunteered to help out by providing exhibits, demonstrations
and much hands-on skill and experience in being willing to help out wherever needed!
Truly Levy County's citizens make living here such a wonderful experience. It's only
with the help of so many fine people that the 2011 Fair was so successful.
Sincerely,
Jim Smith, Executive Director, Levy County FairAssociation


Read the Fertilizer Bag


Sometimes Florida yards need fertilizer to
help keep them healthy, but don't just empty
a bag of fertilizer into your spreader without
doing your homework. The Southwest Florida
Water Management District recommends that
you follow the directions on the package when
choosing and applying fertilizers.
Applying too much fertilizer, too often or
at the wrong time can cause water pollution.
Use Florida-friendly fertilizing practices to help
protect water quality while having a beautiful
lawn.
Know what to apply. A good approach is to
start with a soil test, which will tell you about
your soil's pH (acidity or alkalinity) levels and
other nutrient levels. You can get information on
obtaining a soil test from your county Extension
office or visit www.WaterMatters.org/yards.
Choose the right mixture. All fertilizer
labels have three bold numbers on the front
label representing the three major nutrients your
lawn needs to thrive: nitrogen, phosphorus and
potassium. In general, select a fertilizer where
the first and third numbers on the label are
equal or in a 2:1 ratio and the middle number is


zero or as low as possible.
Go slow-release. It takes a little longer
for your yard to benefit from slow-release
nitrogen, but the effects will last longer. Look
for the terms "timed-release," "slow-release" or
"controlled-release" on the label.
Know how much to apply. Measure your
property and calculate the total square footage
of turfgrass before you make a purchase. Don't
guess! The package label will help guide you on
how much to apply.
The District has created a series of tools to
help you learn to use fertilizer appropriately. By
visiting www.WaterMatters.org/fertilizing, you
can get step-by-step instructions on fertilizing
appropriately as well as watch how-to videos.
You can also order the free 20-page, "Do-It-
Yourself Guide to Florida-Friendly Fertilizing"
for more information.
Fertilizing appropriately is one of the nine
principles of Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM,
a set of guidelines developed by the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences to protect our natural resources while
promoting beautiful landscapes.


Food Preservation (Canning) Classes


Spring is here and your garden soon will
be producing tons of vegetables and fruits!!
Or you may want to take advantage of
farmer's markets, road-side stands or you-
pick operations. Preserving some of that food
for use later in the year will give you great
taste and good nutrition and will also make
memories for a lifetime.
Join us for a canning update. All classes will
cover both pressure canning for vegetables
and boiling water canning for fruits. Sweet
spreads (jams and jellies) and pickles will also
be discussed. This is for the novice as well as
the experienced. Canning recommendations
have changed during the past few years and we
want you to be safe. Seating is limited. There
is an optional $3.00 fee for the workshop. You
may just pay at the door, so please bring the
correct change.
Levy County classes are scheduled for
Monday, May 2nd at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Getting Lost on the Ego Trip


to Famesville

I only had one Elvis sighting in the early
70's. That's surprising, since we lived just
down the road from Graceland, and given
how Momma would drag us down there two
or three times a week to wait outside his gate.
Mom was single you see, and a wee bit
enamored with that side-burned hunk-a-
hunk-a burning love. So she would always
don her Go-go boots, mini-skirt, and powder
blue eyeshade in hopes of standing out in the
crowd. Sadly it was the one night she showed
up in cut off jeans and two inch hair rollers
that she finally did.
"Here he comes," one of the spotters
shouted, "And he's driving!"
In a flash the whole desperate passel
dashed for the driver's side curb. I out
ran most of the blue hairs, but one of the
impersonators stuck out a bellbottom and
tripped me. I tried to drag him down with
me, but only came away with a handful of
rhinestones. Still I managed to crawl up to a
pretty good spot. I called for momma. After
all, she was the one who had on that fancy
French "Owed to the Toilet" perfume. I
knew how important it was to our future that
Elvis get a good whiff of it, so I commenced
throwing elbows to hold her a spot. Then I
saw her, plumb across the drive by herself.
I panicked, "Momma, he's gon' be on this
side." She didn't budge; her eyes were fixed
on that iron Gate. Just as it swung open I
realized the true genius of her plan. Over
there, she'd have to stand out!
Sure enough, Elvis drove out in a long
black car. He was wearing a black shirt



Mrs. Merwin was preceded in death by her
husband, Forrest Dwayne Merwin in 2005.
She is survived by her daughter, Charlotte
(Ron) Vodjdoni of Gerogia.; her sons Charles
(Sandra) Merwin and Chester (Pam) Merwin,
both of Michigan, seven grandchildren and five
great-grandchildren.
Services will be Saturday, April 23, 2011 at

But Anyway...

lip quivering smile. Immediately the blue
hairs stampeded. Elvis jerked the wheel to
avoid a lawsuit from his left, and almost ran
into another on the right. However, momma
wasn't thinking, and instinctively dove out of
the way and tumbled off onto the concrete.
"Dog momma," I cried, "Take one for the
team!"
I'll give her this; she popped up quicker'n
a prairie dog and tried to pull together some
sort of sexy smile. Unfortunately it was hid
beneath a tangle of smashed curlers. Judging
from the gestures Elvis was throwing her
way, I knew we'd never get rich, or live at
Graceland. I just shook my head. If only he'd
been able to sniff her.
But anyway- Some people chase fame,
some just chase famous people. I've found
both to be most fleeting. In the opening
paragraph of a short story I once wrote, the
main character muses; 'Fame, she seductively
prances about the corridors of a simple man's
mind, batting those painted eyes of gold.

PASSING OF NOTE
Commissioner Adam Putnam Statement on Passing of E.T. York,
Founder of IFAS
Tallahassee, FL Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam released the following
statement today regarding the passing of E.T. York, Founder of IFAS at the University of
Florida:
"The University of Florida and agriculture community have suffered a great loss this
morning with the passing of E.T. York. His contributions to the University in creating
IFAS have left a legacy among the agriculture community and served as a stimulus for
research, development and excellence of agriculture in our state. E.T. created an avenue for
students to learn from industry leaders, sparking innovation and preservation of Florida's
$100 billion agriculture industry, and his dedication to alleviating hunger and improving the
human condition in developing countries exemplified his service, generosity and unwavering
commitment to a better tomorrow.
My thoughts and prayers are with E.T.'s wife, children and extended family, and I ask that
you join me in remembering the York family during this time."

On a day as gray as the Confederate uniforms they wore, no wind unfurled the battle
flag at graveside. Musket fire rang out through the cedars of the Geneva, Florida
cemetery, the final resting place of Lewis Thornton Powell.
Powell, the son of a Baptist minister, was but seventeen when he rode out from their Live
Oak home to enlist in the 2nd Florida Infantry Division over in Jasper. Some might have
thought young Lewis unlikely to acquit himself well in battle. The youngest, pampered son
in a family of eight children, Lewis had a studious and gentle nature. So devoted was he to
the care of stray or injured animals that his siblings called him "Doc."
Nevertheless, Lewis Powell soon distinguished himself as a hard-charging soldier who
fought daringly in numerous battles: the Second Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg and
Chancellorsville. And then there was Gettysburg on July 2, 1863 with over 51,000 casualties,
nearly 8,000 killed and Lewis Powell among the captured wounded. When the smoke
cleared, he was sent to a POW hospital at Pennsylvania College. While on the mend, Powell
was transferred along with other Rebel prisoners to a hospital in Baltimore. It was there that
he developed a relationship with a pretty young volunteer by the name of Margaret "Maggie"
Branson. It was with Maggie Branson's help that Lewis Powell managed to escape his captors
and make his way back to the South.
In Virginia, Powell joined up with the much-celebrated Mosby's Raiders of the 43rd
Virginia Cavalry Battalion. Military records reflect that Powell's service with the Virginia
Cavalry was "distinctive." Then in the winter of 1865, something seemingly strange
occurred. Lewis Powell deserted. He crossed to the Union side and offered his Oath of
Allegiance under the alias, Lewis Paine. It is now known, however, that apparent desertions
were a frequent stratagem of the Confederate Secret Service, of which Powell may well have
become an agent.
Of that we cannot be certain, but the next we learn of Lewis Powell he's involved in a
plan to kidnap the President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. The chief architect
of this daring endeavor was one Wilkes Booth. Reportedly, the initial operation was a
scheme to hold Lincoln in exchange for the release of Southern prisoners of war. That didn't
materialize. Instead, Booth devised his now more infamous plot to assassinate the U.S.

President and several other Union officials in the highest ranks of the government. Each of
the conspirators had his particular assigned mission, and collectively they were to be carried
out in simultaneous fashion. Booth himself put the plan into action on the night of April 4,
1865 when he shot Lincoln at Ford's Theatre.
It was alleged in the aftermath that Lewis Powell had been recruited to carry out the
assassination of Secretary of State William Seward. Seward, as it happened, was at his
home bedridden after a carriage accident. Powell told a man servant he was there to deliver
medicine, but his ploy was obstructed from the start. Powell's pistol jammed when he was
confronted unexpectedly by Seward's adult son on the stairs. He bludgeoned him with the
gun's butt, then fought off a male military nurse to reach Seward in an upstairs bed chamber.
As it happened, Powell's attempt to cut Seward's jugular was impaired by a sort of neck brace
the older man was wearing. The military guards were on their way. Powell made a run for it,
tossing his knife to the gutter as he raced from the great house where Seward lay bloody in
his bed sheets but still alive.
Lincoln was not. The hunt was on for all conspirators known and unknown. Unfortunately
for Lewis Powell, by the time he showed up at a boarding house both he and Booth
frequented, the owner, Mary Surratt was just then being arrested for conspiracy. Despite

A Cautionary Tale and Some Local Hero Worship


By Jeannie Hudson


If I told you the highlight of my fishing
trip Saturday was watching the sun rise
over the Gulf of Mexico, would you believe
me? I won't try to wax poetic but there's just
something about watching that giant orange
ball rise over the water that can make even
an ugly, muddy, stinky ol' oyster bar look
beautiful.
Back to the bad day. John Fisher, Chuck
Hudson and I launched at safe light from the
#4 bridge in Cedar Key as participants in an
FFA Alumni fishing tournament. Aside from
the lovely sunrise, things went pretty much
downhill from there. The motor sheared a key
pin and Chuck and John spent a good part
of the morning fixing it. Couple that with an
unrelenting 25-knot wind and an inexistent
fish bite, and well, by 2:00 p.m. we'd had
enough fun for one day. Suffice it to say, we
didn't bother to attend the weigh-in.
But our bad day was nothing compared to
the one that Chris Glisson and Bo Walker
endured. Fishing the same tournament,
they unloaded Chris' airboat from the same
ramp we had, #4, and headed east, toward
Waccasassa. I remember hearing their boat
that morning and commenting that we had
company on that side of Cedar Key. With the
weather being so bad, fellow fishermen were
few and far between. Chuck spotted their
Guy Sheffield continuedfrompage 6
She calls unto his youth, but only that she
may begrudge him of it. Her room is arrayed
with the flickering promises of a thousand
encores, but how few have lived to see that
dawn? As for me, I have allowed this tramp
to whisper sweet nothings into my ear since
I was a child. To this day that is all she has
ever produced.'
Like that character, I know what it's like
to waste your youth on a sad little ego trip
to Famesville, only to be turned away at the
gate. I pursued sports, I tried music. When
those ventures failed I became so dejected
that my continence turned about as flattering
as a Berber hairpiece on a balding buffalo.
Well you know what? I've spent too many
years at that self indulgent party. No longer
will I walk around dejected and thinking of
myself as a failure for not being "Somebody".
Jesus has shown me I am somebody. He
also explained that all the glory belongs to
Him, so I should just take that pressure off of
myself. (I am the LORD: that is my name:


boat and said he thought it might be Chris.
Later, this simple observation would play a
big part in finding the two men.
Sometime around 1:30 that afternoon,
tucked back in a marsh creek, Chris turned
the airboat around in an attempt to rescue
the push-pole that had fell overboard. During
the course of the turn, the wind caught the
underside of the hull and flipped them over,
throwing Chris and Bo into the water and
submerging the boat into a high tide.
At 10:30 that night, Chuck's phone rang. It
was Julie Glisson calling to see if we had seen
Chris that day. She was 3 hours away, visiting
her sister. Chris and Bo hadn't checked in at
the tournament weigh-in and she hadn't been
able to reach either of them by cell phone
since before 2:00 p.m. We remembered seeing
Chris' truck still sitting at the ramp when we
loaded that afternoon.
Julie had also called her friend, Brooke
Ward, who was attending a wedding
reception in Fowlers Bluff. Brooke, along
with Loran Brookins and Rod Hiers, drove
to Cedar Key to check the boat ramp to see
if Chris' truck was still sitting there. It was,
and Brooke, along with Julie, immediately
began calling the Levy County Sheriffs
Department and the U.S. Coast Guard.
At the same time Chuck also called the
LCSO and was able to get the information
out of the dispatcher that the truck was still


and my glory will I not give to another,
neither my praise to graven images. Isaiah
42:8 KJV)
Instead of seeking fame, I should set about
discovering and developing the gifts God
has placed inside me. Instead of comparing
myself to others, I should be delighting
myself in His acceptance, and becoming the
best "me" I can be. From what I can tell, the
rich and famous don't have a corner on the
market of happiness and fulfillment anyway.
Maybe we should all just start enjoying our
lives each day, and rest in the knowledge
that Jesus is LORD. Then, when this brief
journey is over, we won't be the least bit
interested in congregating outside the king
of rock-n-roll's gate. We'll be welcome inside
the pearly gates of the KING of KINGS!

sitting at the ramp. Chuck's response was,
"That's all I need to know." His next phone
call was to John who said he'd have the boat
ready by the time we picked him up, a boat
mind you that we'd had mechanical problems
with that same morning. Didn't matter, we
were putting our faith in their mechanic
skills.
We were the first vessel to arrive at the
ramp close to midnight. A Sheriffs deputy
was on scene, along with two Police Officers
from the City of Cedar Key.
The deputy discouraged Chuck and John
from going in the water, saying he didn't want
to have to rescue two boats instead of one.
John explained that he respected his reason
for concern, but that he and Chuck knew the
area well, had some idea of where Chris and
Bo might be, and most importantly, that we
knew those boys had been on the water since
daybreak. I don't care how much you love to
fish; nobody's doing it for 18 hours straight
in those conditions. Make no mistake about
it, Chris and Bo's lives were in danger. It


doesn't have to be freezing temperatures for
hypothermia to set in. After awhile delirium
can take over, making you see things that
aren't there and think you can do things that
you can't, like swim to safety. Not to mention
they were visited by a rather large alligator.
After leaving names, phone numbers and
me on the hill so I could keep in contact with
Julie, they launched with a Q-Beam spotlight
to light the way. I can't begin to describe how
sick I felt watching them leave.
Keep in mind now that no "official" search
vehicle had shown up at this point. The
Sheriffs department was trying to get an
airboat there and FWC was en route. The
U.S. Coast Guard on the other hand, was still
asking questions. The one organization that
you would think you could rely on to help
out in a search and rescue on the water and
they have the most "red tape" of anyone. I get
that there are steps involved, protocols, but
at the same time can't you get the ball rolling
WHILE you're asking those questions?

The Florida Museum of Natural History will host one of
its largest plant sales April 22-24 for the purchase of plants
friendly to butterflies. The plants may be purchased from
10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 1 to 5 p.m.
Sunday. The sale features 80 to 100 species of native, host
and nectar plants ranging from $3 to $25, and marks the
beginning of the museum's daily butterfly plant sales.
"This plant sale will offer more than four times the species
offered during our regular plant sales," said Jeffrey Hansen,
Florida Museum Butterfly Rainforest operations manager.
The list of available plants may be viewed on the museum
website at www.flmnh.ufl.edu/butterflies/plant_sales.htm.

"Many factors like clearing land for housing and crops
or using pesticides destroys butterfly habitat," Hansen said.
"However, many species can survive with small backyard
plots of the plants they need. The museum decided to begin
offering butterfly-friendly plants each day of the week due to
the increased interest in butterfly gardening and demand for
the plants."
Those interested in learning more about building an
attractive, butterfly-friendly garden will find additional
information on the Florida Museum website. During the
sale, visitors may also speak with experienced museum
employees and volunteers, continued on page 9

Springhouse Quilters

The Springhouse Quilters day-group April meeting convened
Tuesday, April 12 with 41 members and one guest present. Pat
Hodges presided and led the group in an interesting quilting and fun
time.
Members were welcomed by an array of breakfast items, tables
with pastel flower centerpieces and 44 new upholstered chairs.
Sitting was not nearly as difficult for the business meeting.
Demonstrations were provided by Norma Birman, Carol
Mailander, Diane Schweder and Lois Scott with each describing a
useful technique or a helpful hint they had acquired while quilting
or sewing.
On Tuesday, April 19, Norma Birman will conduct a guild
workshop on piecing a raggy quilt. On April 16, members will
attend Anna Gilliam's workshop and will construct a Sunbonnet
Sue, Overall Bill or a Southern Belle block using a fusible applique
technique.
Cheryl Watson recognized members who had instructed beginner
classes and then provided certificates to each beginning quilter
completing the beginning classes.
Anna Gilliam, coordinator of the 4-H Summer Sewing-Quilting
Camp, announced dates for each day camp. Beginning students
will attend June 20-23 and intermediate students July 18-21. The
instructional schedules are in the planning stage. Any young person
interested in attending one of the camps should contact the County
Extension Office in Trenton for eligibility and signup.
Later in the day, the night group convened with Carol Mailander
leading the group. There were 25 members at the night meeting.
This group of ladies shared a delightful covered dish dinner of subs
and other items and then spent time working on different projects.
After an interesting show-and-tell time, at each meeting,
the ladies departed to start new projects. For information on
Springhouse Quilters, contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Butterflies continued frompage 8
Hansen recommends gardeners:
Include all types of plants in your garden. Butterflies feed
on nectar plants and lay their eggs on specific host plants.
Caterpillars also feed on host plants before transforming
into butterflies.
Research local butterflies if you want to attract specific
species. Some butterflies lay their eggs in the shade while
others prefer sunny environments. Each butterfly has a
specific host plant: Monarchs lay eggs on Milkweed and the
Zebra Longwing lays its eggs on Passion Flower.
Take the necessary precautions when planting during
periods of extremely high or low temperatures, and ensure
new plants receive the correct amount of water.

"The gentlemen explained

sun to see if they could discover sun spots and solar flares.
"It [the sun] looked like a quarter!" exclaimed Brewington,
whose enthusiasm was shared by her students.
"We saw the real sun," said Adrian Loredo. He and
classmate Beau Beach like looking at the telescope where you
could see the solar flares moving around.
"Yep, you saw them moving," said classmate Garytt Gamble.

"I liked the eclipse glasses the best," said student Gerard

"Our students have seen photos in their science books of
sun spots and solar flares, but to see the real thing! That's what

Found Photo

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

FWC Establishes License-Free Fishing Weekends,Expands


Bay Scallop Season Dep to Offer ReducedAdmission at State Parks


Florida is the fishing capital of the world, bringing more than $5.4 billion to our economy.
Today at the Cabinet meeting in Panama City with the support of Governor Rick Scott and
the Cabinet, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced
an exciting resource for anglers. FWC announced two weekends in June when a saltwater
fishing license will not be required statewide. The license free weekend of June 4 and 5 is the
first weekend red snapper season opens in the Gulf, and the second weekend of June 18 and
19 is Father's Day weekend.
FWC also announced that it will expand bay scallop season to open a week early on
June 25 and extend the season by two weeks to end on September 25. Small Gulf Coast
communities from Steinhatchee to St. Marks to St. Joe Bay will have three extra weeks for
visitors and residents to explore and enjoy this low cost, fun family activity.
In addition, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Florida State Parks
will offer half off admission on both Mother's Day, Sunday, May 8, and Father's Day,
Sunday, June 19. There are 160 parks throughout the state and 74 unique saltwater fishing
facilities, including piers, boardwalks and jetties. Shore fishing at St. George Island, Big


Lagoon and St. Joseph Peninsula state parks yields
redfish, trout and whiting. Boat ramps at St.
Joseph Peninsula and St. Andrew state parks allow ,
fisherman to head out for a day of fishing in the
Gulf of Mexico to catch red snapper, grouper and
amberjack, to name a few. For more information,
visit www.FloridaStateParks.org.
"Florida's beaches and waters are beautiful,
pristine and ready for visitors to enjoy, whether
you are here for business or a family vacation,"
stated Governor Scott. "I encourage Floridians '
and visitors to our state to make plans now to
enjoy Florida fishing and seafood during the
upcoming free-fishing weekends in June. Whether you catch
it yourself or get it from a market or restaurant, our seafood is the best in the
nation."


Bird Walk For The Visually Impaired


Mark Monday, May 16th on your calendar. As a part of
the Friends of the Lower Suwannee bird walk outings, the
Friends of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Key Refuge will
host a bird walk for visually impaired individuals off CR 347
near the Refuge headquarters. The event is open to everyone.
The first week of May is when Florida birders conduct
the bird breeding survey. Birds are most vocal during the
breeding season. The walk is co-hosted by the Lions Clubs
of Chiefland and Cedar Key. Known for their work with the
visually impaired, these chapters of the Lions Club will help
identify individuals who might like to join the walk. There


will be folks from the Lions Clubs and the Friends Group to
provide assistance where needed.
Jerry Krummrich of Lake City will lead the walk. Jerry
worked for the Fish and Wildlife Commission for 34
years. He has had a love for birding since he was a child.
To become a better birder, he challenged himself to learn
to recognize the birds by their songs. He has shared his
knowledge about birding for years.
On the walk, Jerry will identify the birds by the songs they
sing and then he will provide descriptions of the birds, along
with information about their habits. As he says, his goal will


be "to add joy to lives of people who cannot see the birds."
Clearly, one does not have to visually see birds to enjoy them.
On May 16th, we will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the River Walk
trailhead located off CR 347, just west of Fowlers Bluff. Turn
where you see the Lower Suwannee Refuge HQsign and the
trail head is on the right. For more information, you can call
Ranger Pam Darty (493-0238, ex 223) or Jay Bushnell (493-
1807). Please RSVP to hold your spot and to provide us with
a phone number in case weather prevents the walk. For more
information about this and other Friends events, check our
web page www.friendsofrefuges.org.


New Permit-Tagging Study


Needs Anglers' Help


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission's (FWC)
Fish and Wildlife
Research Institute
and the Bonefish &
Tarpon Trust need
anglers to assist with
a study about permit
in Florida waters. Project Permit participants
will help biologists obtain information on this
economically important fish.
Anglers can assist biologists by tagging and
sampling DNA from any permit they catch
and release. Participants will mark each fish
with a dart tag and obtain a small fin clip
from the dorsal or anal fin of the fish. The
information from the tags and DNA samples
will improve biologists' understanding of
permit movement and distribution. Although
the program is relatively new, biologists
already have documented a tagged permit
that had traveled more than 40 miles
along the east coast of Florida before being
captured again.
Fish and Wildlife Research Institute
scientists will also compare permit DNA


1' -
-* -'


samples to determine whether all the tagged
fish come from the same genetic stock.
Resource managers can use this information
for regulating the permit fishery.
The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust proposed
the collaborative study after obtaining a grant
from Costa Del Mar, which agreed to supply
funds for the tagging kits for three to five
years.
Anglers who would like to participate in
Project Permit can obtain a free, easy-to-use
tagging kit by e-mailing ProjectPermit@
MyFWC.com or by calling 800-367-4461.
Each kit contains enough material to sample
five fish.
For more information on Project Permit,
visit MyFWC.com/Research, click on
"Saltwater," scroll down to "Saltwater Fish"
and click on "Permit."


by Rodney Barreto
FWC Chairman

Florida attracts people
who enjoy the outdoors:
anglers trying to lure the big
one, birdwatchers waiting in
silence, kids trying to catch
a glimpse of everything from
manatees and alligators to
Mickey Mouse, retirees who
saved a lifetime to come
down, and people from all
walks of life wanting to
enjoy our warm rays and
vast outdoor recreational
opportunities.
Our state is known for
hosting millions of visitors
each year some 41 million,
to be exact.
We are lucky to live in
a state that affords us the
opportunity to enjoy the
outdoors most months of the
year. Just ask those visiting
from the North. Where
else can you experience
temperatures in the 80s in
the middle of February?
While it is no secret
that Florida has diverse
recreational resources, what
you might not know about
the fiscal impact of fishing,
hunting and wildlife viewing
in Florida could surprise you.
Fish and wildlife
contribute to Florida's
tourism industry. Each year,
$20 billion and 250,000 jobs


come directly from fish and
wildlife in the state, and an
additional $18 billion and
another 200,000 jobs are the
indirect benefit of boating in
state waters.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC)
oversees these waterways and
protects fishing and hunting
resources for this generation
and beyond. Those of us
who work for the FWC are
thankful that we get to enjoy
the fruits of our labor while
positively impacting others
by creating jobs and revenue.
In fiscal year 2011-12
alone, the combined revenue
from recreational fishing
license sales and federal
aid through the Sport Fish
Restoration Program is
projected to be $45,229,260.
In today's economy, where
Florida families are doing
more with less, I am proud
that the FWC does its part
every year to contribute
to the state's economy in a
winning way.
Wildlife viewing is a
significant economic engine
in Florida, accounting for
$5.6 billion and 51,367
jobs of the $20 billion and
250,000 jobs noted earlier.
The Great Florida Birding
and Wildlife Trail represents
only one aspect of wildlife


viewing enjoyed by residents
and visitors alike. The FWC
partnered with the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida and
the Florida Department
of Transportation to create
this network of 500 birding
sites and 2,000 miles of
self-guided highway trails
throughout Florida.
During the February
FWC Commission meeting
in Apalachicola, my fellow
commissioners and I
experienced first-hand the
impact of fishing and its
role in the economy of the
quaint fishing community.
We heard from residents
and business owners as we
conducted our meetings,
toured an oyster-processing
company alongside Gov.
Rick Scott and enjoyed lunch
from the local bounty. The
community depends on the
marine life in its estuaries
and Gulf waters.
Apalachicola is a piece of
Florida locked away in time,
guided by the traditions of
years past. It rejuvenates
us and reminds us of the
importance of what we do
at the FWC. We take our
responsibilities to heart as
we consider those who enjoy
what Florida has to offer
and those who make a living
from its harvest.

Will Irby continuedfrompage 7
Powell's attempts to portray himself as a laborer reporting for
work, the Union officers took him into custody. Mary Surratt's
insistence that she didn't know Powell only made matters
worse, for his signature (Lewis Paine) was on the register.
Besides, other boarders and taverners were only too eager to tell
that he and other named conspirators had met there in Mary
Surratt's company, as well.
By the time of his trial, the evidence had mounted. The
conspiracy to kill the U.S. President and his top officials was
fully described as a diabolical scheme by an elaborate network
of Southern sympathizers, spies and assassins, of which
Powell was convicted as one. He and his fellow conspirators -
including Mary Surratt were hanged on July 7, 1865. Lewis
"Doc" Powell of Live Oak, Florida was 21 years old at the time
of his death. All of the bodies of the executed were claimed by
family members except his.
But this did not end the strange and mysterious ordeal of
Lewis Powell. For as it happened, his remains would be moved
about and reburied from one pauper's grave to another until
they somehow disappeared from any known record. Then,
incredibly in 1992, a researcher at work in the Smithsonian's
Museum of Natural History discovered that a skull in one of
the Native American collections was out of sequence. When
the catalogue number was matched, the skull was found to be
that of Lewis Thornton Powell. It was Doc's skull, separated
from the rest of his bones, likely mislabeled and lost to
bureaucratic obscurity in a dank storeroom within sight of the
Lincoln Memorial.
In any case, the Smithsonian made a diligent search and
contacted Lewis Powell's closest living relative. It was she, a
72-year-old woman living near Oviedo, Florida who stood with
a mahogany box that gray day at the Old Geneva Cemetery.
There were a few others from the Powell family line there as
well, along with the historical re-enactors in uniform dutifully
playing Taps. This solemn scene was an historical reminder that
such things take a long time- if indeed they ever are- to be laid
to rest.


Chuck and John found them after only
thirty minutes of searching. Chuck heard
them yelling over the wind and the motor.
John thought he was hearing things but
after cutting the engine and calling Chris'
name, they answered. Once they got an
idea of the direction to go, they were able -
to locate the creek they were in and hit
them with the spotlight. It took another
twenty minutes or so for them to pick
their way to where they were, standing
in the middle of a patch of marsh grass
about the size of a truck bed with the tide rising.
Needless to say, it was emotional. You can imagine how
helpless they must've felt as the hours passed. Chris told
Chuck that he knew it would be him that found them; that
ifJulie called him he'd come and he would be the one that
found them. Chuck and I still have trouble talking about it
today without choking up. Call it what you will blind luck,
divine intervention or as I like to think of it, a "country boy's
intuition" they were safe. Wet, cold, hungry, exhausted both
physically and emotionally, but alive.
I wrote this for several reasons.
First and foremost, the absolute dumbest thing you can
tell yourself is that this could never happen to you. Mother
Nature, Murphy's Law or fate will have something to say
about that. If you're a boater, it can happen. Doesn't have to
be an airboat. All kinds of boats sink, capsize or break down.
Chris did nothing wrong. He wasn't drinking or clowning
around. Yeah, none of us probably should've been on the water
Saturday, but hey, hindsight's 20/20, you could hit by a bus
tomorrow, blah, blah, blah.
Make sure your boat has all the "required" items on board:
life vests, flares that work, an air horn, a waterproof flashlight,
a mirror (sounds crazy but you can get someone's attention
with those last two items), a working marine radio, food and
plenty of bottled water. I'm sure there are others I'm leaving
out. Most of it is common sense.
Tell someone where you're going, what ramp you're
launching from, and how long you expect to be gone. Get in
the habit of calling a friend or a loved one to let them know
you're off the water. They should EXPECT you to call, so if
you don't they will know something's wrong. I'm forty-five
years old and still, if I don't call my mother to let her know
we're on dry land I get chastised.
But the one simple, inexpensive thing that would've helped


-. : _- -







Chris and Bo the most is a quart-size Ziploc bag. Make sure
your cell phone is charged before you leave, zip it into a bag
with a little air, and stick it in your pocket, preferably one that
buttons. Cell phones don't like water and they won't work on
the bottom of the ocean. In a Ziploc they'll float and stay dry
so you can make a lifesaving call if you have to.
I'm sure there are lessons to be learned from what happened
Saturday night, but they'll be different for everyone. My hope
is that we'll all become even more diligent about looking out
for ourselves and our friends, and that Chris and Bo won't
let this experience keep them from going back on the water.
Nature is a gift from God and just because she demands
respect doesn't mean we should be afraid of her.
I wrote this because Chuck Hudson and John Fisher
deserve to be called "heroes" or "angels," regardless of how
they feel about the subject. They didn't have to do what they
did, and yes, someone else would've stepped up in their
absence. But they dragged their tired butts out of bed, back
into an ornery boat and terrible weather conditions, and went
without once grumbling or expressing a moment's hesitation
because it was the right thing to do. I, along with John's wife
Sonya, couldn't be more proud and awestruck by these two
men. Aren't these the kind of individuals you want you're
children to look up to?
I wrote this because the front page of the newspaper this
week was depressing as hell, nothing but drug dealers and
thieves and child molesters. You turn on the television and it's
even worse. There's a serial killer loose on Long Island and
a woman drove herself and her four small children into the
Hudson River. It's enough to make you lose faith in humanity.
I wrote this because there are still good people in this world
and we need to be reminded of that from time to time. People
like Chuck and John, Brooke Ward, Loran Brookins, Rod
Hiers, Adam Henderson, and the officers of the Levy County
Sheriffs department and the FWC.

Sinkhole Claims Life of Area Well Driller


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Journal

The parents of a 52-year-old well driller were on scene Sunday morning when their son's
body was pulled from a sinkhole off County Road 341 in Gilchrist County.
Johnn Clyde Smith, 52, of O'Brien, was reportedly drilling a well Saturday afternoon in an
open field owned by White Farms and located east of County Road 341.
According to Major Tony Smith of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office, Smith's family
members grew concerned when he didn't come home Saturday evening from the well-drilling
job he was working in Gilchrist County.
Family members reportedly called their friend Murray Tillis of Chiefland and asked that he
ride out to where Smith had been working earlier in the day to see if his rig had broken down,
or something had gone wrong.
After discovering Smith's well-drilling rig upended some 15 feet down in a sink hole, Tillis
called family members and the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office, who arrived on scene shortly
after 11:30 on Saturday night.
"We don't know what time the accident occurred," Major Smith said on Monday.
"All we know is that the last people to see him were some farmers, around 1 p.m., who were
also working in the field getting it ready to plant corn."
Gilchrist County Road Department Superintendent Billy Cannon and a crew arrived around
midnight with heavy equipment to pull the heavy well-drilling rig from the hole. According
to Major Smith, it took the crew four hours of hard work to remove the rig, which weighed an
estimated 85,000 pounds.
"It was too dangerous to send rescue workers down in the hole because the ground was
giving way," Major Smith said.
Rescue workers were also helped by Johnn Smith's father, who was a well driller for a
number of years and the founder ofJohnny Smith's Well Drilling.
"His father used to own the business so he knew how unstable sink holes are," Major Smith
said. "He was adamant that no one else risk their life going in the sink hole."


The body ofJohnn Smith was pulled from the sink hole between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. on
Sunday after it was recovered beneath the well-drilling rig.
According to Major Smith, a counselor was coming in to talk with rescue workers this week
who may be having trouble dealing with the accident.
The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the Gilchrist County Road Department for their
help with this accident, as well as EMS and firefighters from Gilchrist County Fire-Rescue
who also were on scene throughout the night on Saturday.
