Morriston Man Dead After Hitting Semi Head-On in

Crash Involving School Bus


A Morriston man was killed Friday morning when a
school bus driver turned into his Oldsmobile's path on
Williston Road west of Interstate 75 in Alachua County,
according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP). No
passengers were on the bus.
Alachua County Fire Rescue pronounced George
Hillman, Jr., 78, dead at the scene.


Hillman was driving east on Williston Road at about
10:20 a.m. when the school bus driven by Marc Perrault,
32, of Keystone Heights, pulled into his path as the bus
attempted to turn left onto Southwest 82nd Place, troopers
said.
The Oldsmobile struck the right rear of the school bus,
and then side-swiped two other vehicles after entering the


westbound lanes of Williston Road. Hillman continued until
he struck a semi-tractor/trailer head-on, according to the
accident report.
None of those in the other four vehicles suffered injuries,
FHP said. Charges were pending for further investigation,
troopers said.

BOCC Decides to Go For It All in New Public

Safety Director Search


By Roz Tartaglione
Contributing Writer


The Levy County Board of County Commissioners spent time and
effort defining the minimum requirements for education, experience,
skills and abilities for the newly created position of Public County Safety
Director for the county.
Commissioners asked each other, their staff, other county public safety
officers and the public for their input on what should define what they
are looking for in the new position, created mostly to replace outgoing
Director of Emergency Services, Trish Seibold.
Seibold, having spent nearly 20 years with the county herself,
contributed to the discussion of what the new position should require.
Seibold remains in her position as director as the search moves forward,
first with advertising the job's minimum requirements.
The new Public Safety Director the BOCC envisions will head up
Levy County EMS and, in the near future, become what the county
hopes will be an effective public safety coordinator for Levy County's
fire departments, fire rescue services and emergency medical services
organizations.
The commissioners spent most of the time discussing whether or not
they wanted to lean toward filling the anticipated upcoming vacancy with
someone with significant administrative experience, especially with the


$4 million budget, or someone with more hands-on experience in fire and
emergency medical service.
In the end, commissioners decided that they would seek a public safety
director that had, at a minimum:
The equivalent to an Associate's degree in Fire Services, Fire
Administration, Public Administration or Emergency Medical
Services;
A Firefighter I Certification with the requirement that a Firefighter
II Certification would be completed in three years after a six-month
probation;
Hold and maintain a current paramedic certification;
Have a current Florida Drivers License;
Increasing responsibility in job experience in Fire Rescue or EMS;
Five years experience managing and supervising public safety
personnel, preferably as Fire Chief, Deputy Chief or EMS Officer;
Documented work as a public safety volunteer or career position;
A minimum of a bachelor's degree in finance or significant budget
experience.
The board plans to advertise the requirements and salary range, $55,
000 to $75,000.
The board agreed that the future public safety director will be
responsible for the Levy County Emergency Medical Service in the short
term and will fulfill the role of public safety coordinator in the long-term
for the county.

With meteorologists predicting an
active hurricane season and greater
impact on the U.S. coastline in 2011,
now is not only the time to start
stocking up on batteries and water, but
also to review your insurance policy.
The Florida Association of Public a
Insurance Adjusters (FAPIA) advises
Floridians to thoroughly review
their policies to see what is and is
not covered in the event of property
damage, specifically damage caused
by windstorms. The insured property
owner also needs to be aware of
the steps to take in case a hurricane
strikes.
"Preparing for a storm in advance
is one of the most important things a
Floridian can do. This includes not
o nly protecting your property from
damage, but also preparing to respond
-. in case damage does occur," said
David Beasley, president of FAPIA.

changes to their policies in recent
years."
Beasley suggests home and business
owners turn to a public insurance
adjuster if they incur property damage
this hurricane season as soon as
possible after sustaining a loss. Public
insurance adjusters are licensed by
the State of Florida to advocate for
and assist insured consumers in
the preparation, presentation and
adjustment of their property insurance
claims.
"Public adjusters play a vital role in
making sure that Florida consumers
receive full and fair compensation on
their insurance claims," said Beasley,
citing a recent report by the Florida
Legislature's Office of Program
Policy Analysis and Government
Accountability that shows how
customers of the state's largest
insurer received significantly higher
compensation when working with
public adjusters.
Based on the lessons of previous
hurricane seasons, FAPIA has
compiled this list of

investigation, Jones had one morphine pill in his pocket and
12 grams of K2 (imitation marijuana). 'The morphine pills were 100 milligrams pills.

Last year DEA collected 121 tons of unwanted drugs, nationwide from 3,400 sites.
This year 5,300 agencies participated. Imagine how many drugs were collected this time.
Finding a safe and legal means to dispose of such drugs can be a problem for many people,
particularly if they have children. Simply flushing the drugs is hazardous to the environment

Heroin Drug Bust at Dawg

House Bar

The Levy Country Sheriffs Office and the Chlefland Pclice Department conducted
a buy-bust drug operation and arrested Joseph "Angel" Wright for trafficking in heroin
and oxycodone.
The Drug Task Force utilized a confidential informant (Cl) for the undercover
drug deal. The C1 was issued 100 oxvcodone pills for the purpose of trading them for
heroin with Wright. Wright met the CI at the Dawg House Bar in Fanning Springs
and removed from his groin area 20 doses of heroin and traded it for the 100 pills of
oxvcodone.
The heroin drug deal is very rare tor Lev} County. The last time the Drug Task Force
made a heroin arrest was in 2003.

Hurricane continued from page 1
Six Steps to Prepare for Hurricane Damage:
1. Make a visual record of your home and possessions. Use
your digital camera or video recorder to document the
condition of your home and belongings. This will help
document your claim after a loss.
2. Place copies of your insurance policies, family medical
information, and important documents such as deeds and
wills in a safe deposit box, safe or your car.
3. Carefully review your insurance coverage in advance of
hurricane season. What is your deductible on a hurricane
loss? Does your policy cover flood or wind damage? Does
it take into account current market value to rebuild your


home or business?
4. Be sure to review the "Duties After Loss" section of your
policy. Failure to follow the provisions listed in this section
could result in non-payment on your legitimate claim.
5. Check the "Exclusions" portion of your windstorm policy.
Many insurance companies have added new exclusions to
coverage, which could affect your protection.
6. It is your right to submit a claim. Don't allow your insurer
or agent to persuade you from seeking help with your
claim. Only licensed public adjusters can help you adjust
a claim and they're required by law to include their license
on contracts. Visit www.fapia.net to print out contact


information for licensed FAPIA public insurance adjusters
in your area that you can quickly contact in case damage
occurs.
About FAPIA
FAPIA was founded in 1993, and consists of nearly 500
members and associate members who join together to protect the
interests of insured homeowners and businesses who have suffered
a property insurance loss. Where company and independent
adjusters represent the insurance companies, Public Adjusters
represent the Insured. The association is based in Maitland, Fla.,
and its members are located everywhere from the Panhandle to
the Keys.

The Trump Card


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


'The boomlet for Donald
Trump as a Republican
nominee for President of the
United States ought to be a
wake-up call for Republican
candidates and Republican .
Party leaders alike.
Why has Trump surged
ahead of other Republican
candidates and potential
candidates in the polls? It is
not likely that his resurrection
of the issue of Barack Obama's birth certificate has aroused all
this support.
The birth certificate issue does more political damage
to Obama's critics than to the president himself, because
it enables the media to paint those critics as kooks. Nor
are Donald Trump's political positions such as to create a
stampede to his cause.
Radio talk show host Mark Levin has rebroadcast Trump's
varied and mutually contradictory statements on political
issues and personalities over the years. It was a devastating
revelation of Trump's "versatility of convictions," to use a
phrase coined long ago by Thorstein Veblen.
What then is Donald Trump's appeal-- and why should it
concern Republican leaders in general?
What Trump has that so many other Republicans are
so painfully lacking is the ability and the willingness to


articulate his positions clearly, forcefully and in plain English.
Too many Republicans talk like the actor of whom a critic
once said, "he played the king like he was afraid that someone
else was going to play the ace."
What electrified so many Republicans about Sarah Palin in
the 2008 election campaign was that she was such a contrast
to the usual mealy-mouth talk that was more common
among other Republican candidates, including Senator John
McCain. Whether you agreed or disagreed with her position
on the issues, you didn't have to wave your hand in front of
her eyes to see if she was awake.
Donald Trump is dangerous in at least two senses. If, by
some tragic miracle, he should become the Republicans'
candidate for president in 2012, that would be the closest
thing to an iron-clad guarantee of a second term in the White
House for Barack Obama.
That would be a huge setback for the Republicans-- and,
far more important-- a historic catastrophe for this country.
What seems more likely is that Donald Trump as
a candidate for the Republican nomination would use
his superior articulation skills-- not to mention brash
irresponsibility-- to trash all the other Republican candidates
for that nomination, leaving them damaged goods in the
eyes of the public, and therefore less able to gather the votes
needed to prevent the reelection of Obama.
Why Republicans seem not to understand the crucial
importance of putting the same time and attention into
articulating their positions as the Democrats do is one of the
enduring mysteries of American politics.
It was obvious that the Democrats coordinated their
talking points and catch-phrases-- "social justice," "tax cuts


for the rich," etc.-- even before the overheard and recorded
statements of Senator Chuck Schumer about Democrats'
plans to repeatedly use the word "extreme" to characterize
Republicans.
But how many Republican catch-phrases can you
remember? Republican rhetoric tends to range from low key
to no key.
Nor is there much evidence that Republicans have asked
themselves how the left-wing of the Democratic Party gained
such ascendancy in recent years, in a country where millions
more people identify themselves as conservative than identify
themselves as liberals.
In short, there is little or no evidence that most
Republicans see any need to fundamentally change their
approach to the public. But if they think that they can rely on
Obama's declining popularity to win the 2012 election, they
may be in for a rude shock. Worse yet, the whole future of
this country and of western civilization will be in jeopardy,
in a world where the likes of Iran and North Korea become
nuclear powers, while we engage in empty talk at the U.N.
BaraCk Obama's declining support in public opinion polls
make some conservatives feel that his reelection hopes are
doomed. But Donald Trump can be Barack Obama's secret
weapon in his fight to remain in the White House. The
Donald can be his Trump card.

Maxine Waters: Swamp

Queen


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

Confirmed: "Drain the swamp" is
Washington-speak for "Let it fester." While
House ethics watchdogs dither, it's shady
business as usual for ethics scandal-plagued
Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.
Last summer, the House Ethics
Committee charged the entrenched
California congresswoman with three
violations related to her wheeling and dealing
on behalf of minority-owned OneUnited
Bank in Los Angeles. The panel accused
Waters of bringing discredit to the House
for using her influence to seek and secure
taxpayer-subsidized special favors for the
failing financial institution.
Eight months have passed since the
House ethics panel charged Waters. But to
date, there has been no action. No trial. No
consequences.
Instead, Waters is busy ginning up
opposition to GOP budget and entitlement
reform, introducing new regulatory
crackdowns on the financial industry, and
waltzing into political rallies as Aretha
Franklin's "Respect" blares from the
loudspeaker. The Swamp Queen has been
playing her well-worn race card, stoking class
warfare in the "community" and playing
populist guardian of the "children, the poor,
the disabled and the elderly."
Mad Maxine may have her "community"
duped. But this corporate welfare fixer is just
another corruptocrat of a different stripe.
To re-cap: OneUnited Bank received $12
million in federal TARP bailout money after
Waters' office personally intervened and
lobbied the Treasury Department in 2008.
The minority depository institution was
seeking a backdoor government rescue from
its reckless decision to squander nearly $52
million of its bank capital on Fannie Mae
and Freddie Mac preferred stock. Lavish
spending by top bank executive Kevin Cohee,
who boasted a company-financed Porsche
and a Santa Monica, Calif., beachfront
mansion, compounded the bank's problems.
After the federal bailout of Fannie/
Freddie, OneUnited's stock in the
government-sponsored enterprises plunged
to a value estimated at less than $5 million.
Only through Waters' intervention was
OneUnited able to secure an emergency
meeting with the Treasury and its then-
Secretary Henry Paulson.
The bailout beggars did so under the
guise of representing the "National Bankers
Association." But records obtained by
congressional investigators showed that
OneUnited's legal counsel, vice president
and president (the latter two are married to
each other) spearheaded the meeting and
its agenda and drafted the talking points/


briefing
material for
Waters.
OneUnited
executives
had donated
$12,500
to Waters'
congressional .
campaigns.
Her husband, '
Sidney Williams, was an investor in one of
the banks that merged into OneUnited. His
stock holdings were estimated at $350,000.
Waters meddled despite warnings from
fellow Democratic Rep. Barney Frank to
keep her nose out of the case.
E-mails obtained by public interest
legal foundation Judicial Watch and more
recently by the Washington Post reveal that
federal bank examiners were livid about the
intervention of muddied Waters. "There
are some really good people expressing very
strong opinions regarding what they view
as a travesty of justice regarding the special
treatment" OneUnited is receiving, acting
regional director John M. Lane complained
in a March 2009 e-mail to Christopher J.
Spoth, a senior FDIC consumer protection
official.
On Jan. 13, 2009, Brookly McLaughlin,
then-Treasury Department deputy assistant
secretary for public affairs, e-mailed her
shock at Waters' apparent conflict of interest
regarding OneUnited: "Further to email
below, WSJ (Wall Street Journal) tells me:
...Apparently this bank is the only one that
has gotten money through section 103-6 of
the EESA law. And Maxine Waters' husband
is on the board of the bank. ??????"
Another government agency had rapped
the bank in October 2008 for "operating
without effective underwriting standards and
practices," "operating without an effective
loan documentation program" and "engaging
in speculative investment practices."
Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president,
reports that Waters' friend and fellow
California Democratic Rep. Zoe Lofgren
helped delay her ethics trial by stalling
subpoenas, "doing everything in her power
to undermine the professional committee
staff leading the investigation," and
improperly firing two attorneys working on
the investigation. Now, the GOP is mum on
setting a date for the trial. Why?
This much is clear: Mad Maxine Waters'
cronyism of color can't be whitewashed, no
matter how long Washington stalls.

celebration that the war in Afghanistan has been won, and that justice has prevailed."
"Now that the objectives of Operation Enduring Freedom have been met, we can put
aside the difference of opinion that Libertarians have had with both Republicans and
Democrats about the war, and we can now unilaterally agree that it is time bring home all
of our troops from the region. We call on President Obama to withdraw all U.S. troops
from Afghanistan and Pakistan now that the objective of Operation Enduring Freedom
has been fulfilled," said Wyllie.
The LPF has been consistent in their opposition to the undeclared war in Afghanistan.
They have suggested that there are methods more consistent with the United States
Constitution that would have brought bin Laden to justice without the high number in
civilian casualties, and extreme cost in American blood and treasure.
Libertarians also call on President Obama to begin dismantling the agencies,
legislation, and executive orders that have restricted Americans' civil liberties during this
decade of terror, including the PATRIOT ACT, Department of Homeland Security, and
the TSA.
"We are relieved that one of the darkest chapters in American history can now be
closed. We hope this provides some solace to those who lost loved ones on that tragic
day," said Wyllie. "We hope that we can return to a Nation that stands strong not because
of her projection of force, but because of the liberty of her people."

Suwannee River Cleanup Coming
Hello Suwannee River Fans!
We're going to do it again! Current Problems decided to once
again conduct the Great Suwannee River Cleanup this fall. And
we're hoping you'll want to be involved. We need sponsors, business
partners (in-kind and cash) and groups to sign on to cleanup
sections.
There will be one important change to registration. This year we
will designate the sections of the river from milepost to milepost.
Those signing up for a section can pick one or more of these sections
of the river. Many of you learned last year that you took on too long
of a stretch of the river to be feasible in a day. Keep that in mind
when you sign up your group this year.
Once again, registration will be online. Before long, I will send
out information about registering and our kick off celebration, but in
the meantime, we are all hoping you will plan on joining in again.
Stay tuned!

UF Researchers to Study Weight Management Program

for Rural Kids and Families


This summer researchers at the University of Florida will begin a study examining a weight
management treatment program for children and their parents in rural counties in North
Central Florida.
The Extension Family Lifestyle Intervention Project for Kids, or E-FLIP for Kids, is
designed to help children and parents improve their diet and physical activity to promote
positive self-image and better weight management. The no-cost program helps families
work together to learn how to manage real-life problems and make gradual changes in their
lifestyles. The study is a joint effort between researchers at the UF Health Science Center
and IFAS Extension at UF. For residents in Levy County and other surrounding rural
counties, all treatment contacts for this no-cost program will be held at the Levy County
Cooperative Extension Service office in Bronson, FL.
E-FLIP for Kids is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Diabetes &
Digestive & Kidney Disorders to David Janicke, Ph.D at the University of Florida. Co-
Investigators on the project include Dr. Janet Silverstein, Dr. Marilyn Dumont-Driscoll, Dr.
Anne Mathews, Dr. Linda Bobroff, and Dr. Michael Perri at the University of Florida.
"Rates of childhood obesity are higher in rural areas than non-rural areas," said Janicke,
an associate professor of clinical and health psychology in the College of Public Health and
Health Professions. "We have received a number of requests from families and physicians
regarding treatment programs for children who are overweight or obese in these areas.



SVP Auditions for Pollyanna


Unfortunately, easily accessible options for this type of treatment are hard to find in rural
areas. This study can benefit families enrolled in rural areas by providing an option for
the treatment of obesity and associated health problems that is available in their local
communities."
The E-FLIP for Kids program will compare family-based group treatment programs
versus a treatment program in which only the parents) attend group treatment meetings. The
programs are designed to help children establish healthier weight status, as well as healthier
eating and exercise habits. The treatment programs last one-year, but families will also be
followed for 12 months after treatment ends to assess the long-term impact of the treatments.
E-FLIP for Kids is available to children between the ages of 8 and 12, and their parents,
who live in participating rural counties, which includes Levy County. To participate, children
must have a parent or legal guardian who is willing to attend group treatment sessions that
will occur once per week during the first few months of the program, but will decline in
frequency to once a month at the end of the program. All treatment visits will be held at
local Cooperative Extension offices in participating counties. Families will be given $10 per
treatment session to compensate them for travel costs. Screening visits for the study begin
in April, with the treatment programs beginning in August of 2011. Families interested in
signing up for the program or who have questions should call the E-FLIP for Kids office toll
free at 1-866-673-9623. The E-FLIP for Kids team is taking calls now.

Program Pollyanna: adapted by Susan
Pargman from the story Pollyanna by Eleanor
Porter and presented by special arrangements
with Pioneer Drama Services. Ages: 8 to 18 /
Grades 3 to 12. If your child is not interested
in being on stage, there are plenty of jobs
behind the scenes.
This is the delightful, classic tale of the
greatest optimist of all time... Pollyanna. But
it's much more than that. It's the story how a
little girl's faith in her father's promise that
you can find something good about anything
that happens guides her steadfastly
through circumstances that most adults
would find formidable. Pollyanna becomes
an orphan, and she is placed into the care
of her purely pessimistic and domineering
aunt. Talk about difficult circumstances-the
clash of hope and doubt meeting under the
same roof! The town itself isn't much better.
Led by a "fire and brimstone" pastor whose


favorite Bible verse is "Woe unto you," folks
are always complaining, feeling sorry for
themselves and viewing their existence as
dark and dreary. Yet, Pollyanna faithfully
plays her "glad game," innocently teaching it
to others wherever she goes. The hired help,
such as maid Nancy, cook Mrs. Durgin and
gardener Old Tom, seem to catch on first.
Other townspeople like hypochondriac Mrs.
Snow and her sarcastic daughter Millie slowly
learn the joy of the game too. Charmingly
narrated by Jimmy Bean, another orphan,
we also meet the hermit-like John Pendleton
and Dr. Chilton, who had closed his heart to
taking risks... that is, until he met Pollyanna.
Auditions will be held 11:00 a.m. on the
14th of May at the Chief Theater (25 East
Park Avenue, Chiefland) under the direction
of Linda Hagan and Janice Grant. Show
dates are July 8th, 9th & 10th and 15th, 16th
& 17th. If you have questions, please leave
a message on the Suwannee Valley Players
phone: 352-493-ARTS.

Key West Hookers


Boo Greek Divers

A funny thing happened when the 1953 movie Under 12 Mile Reef played in Kev West.
The marquee at The Strand on Duval Street boasted actors Robert Wagner, Richard Boone
and cheesecake glamour girl, Terry Moore. One of the first films made in Cinemascope, it also
featured never before attempted underwater scenes. So you'd think this nautical saga about
competing families of sponge fishermen on Florida's Gulf Coast might play well with the
Conchs. Not so. Inside the theatre, the increasingly raucous audience grew restless. Loud hissing
and taunts started early on. By the time Robert Wagner was desperately fighting off the giant
octopus, the crowd was nearly in riot. They were cheering mightily for the sea creature to win!
Here's the rub. As early as the 1820s, turtle fishermen out of Key West were finding sponges
in their turtling nets. Sometimes, dislodged by storms, they washed up on the beaches. Locals
began to dry and process sponges for personal use, but soon a new commercial market developed.
The real money came when vast sponge beds were discovered along the coral reefs in turquoise
waters nearby.
Glass-bottomed buckets rendered shimmering views of the reefs and rocks where sponges
could be found. Key West spongers began working from converted fishing boats, using long poles
with pronged hooks on the end to extract them. These "hookers," as the men working the poles
were called, worked as deep as their poles would reach. Deck hands piled the sponges high above
the decks, covering them with burlap made wet with seawater.
As the sponges died, their skins would become brittle and begin to fall off. The harvesters
and their families pounded and washed the newly "hooked" sponges in wash tubs outside their
fishing shanties. The soft, dense skeletons were then strung on long, thin lines to dry in the
sun. After drying completely, the sponges might be washed several more times before they were
sufficiently clean and shed of any remnant of their now brittle skin.
By the late 1800s, Key West alone had a sponge fleet of several hundred vessels engaged in
the industry. Soon hundreds of men, women and children depended on sponges for their living.
In what was arguably the largest sponge market in the world at the time, an auction was held
each day at three o'clock on the city wharf. Great piles of the market-ready sponges, separated by
grades, were on display before the anchored fleet of "hook boats." Anxious bidders bobbed about
.pinning their bids on folded slips of paper to each pile. Most of this activity was presided over by
.a burly Greek dressed in linen. Behind his thick mustache and booming voice was A.J. Arapian,
whose annual aggregate sales of a half a million dollars had won him the title of "Sponge King."




Our Father who art in heaven, I ask that your angels deliver this letter to heaven
to my dear son James A. Aigner, Jr. who passed on April 29, 2009 at his home in
Morriston, Florida from complications from diabetes:
My Dear son,
It has been two long, sad andpainful years since we lost you, and you are missed more with
each day that passes. I know that you are at rest knowing your sisters Terry Cain of Texas,
Cathy Wilde ofArizona, your beautiful daughter aime, your granddaughters Sydne and
Ryleigh ofBenton, Louisiana, your dad JamesAigner Sr. of Virginia and your mom Joan
ofArizona are doing well. We miss you, love you and just wish we could tell you how much
pain we feel without you.
As for Tuffie, she is happy with Glen and Sandy ofMorriston and trying to teach them
how to go overboard to bring in the fish. You taught her so well. Your lovely daughter Jaime
is graduating from college this week. We know how proud you would be.
As for me, my son, my heart aches every dayfor you. You are so dearly loved and missed.

Love always,
Mom F

Guy Sheffield continued from page 6


questions immediately coming to mind; like
how did those deer tracks get there? I also
began to question whether dad had said the
gun's safety should be poked in or out. It
began to worry me to no end. If dad came
back and I didn't have the gun on safety he'd
whomp me good. The more I thought about
it, the more confused I became. If the red on
the button was showing, did it mean stop, or
fire?
After much reasoning I convinced myself
I must've knocked the safety off during
my nap. Everyone knows red means stop.
So I reached down and clicked it back on.
I slid my finger in that trigger housing to
give her a little pull just to prove I was right
when "BOOM"! The gun jarred clean out
of my lap, and the blast nearly felled a big
neighboring tree. I quickly gathered it back
up, along with my eyeballs, and clicked
that little button back the other way. I
could've sworn I heard the sound of squirrels
chuckling.
But anyway- Like a recent commercial
said, "Life comes at you fast." I've noticed it
could leave you pretty quick too! I could've
been killed. Maybe that's why I'm compelled
to ask, "Who do you say that Jesus is?" I ask
because it's a question dealing with eternal
Life, and another case in which there's only
one way to properly operate the safety.
A lot of religions acknowledge Jesus as
part of their false teachings. They admit He
was a great prophet, or say He was a good
man. (They wouldn't want to
be so ignorant as to belittle i
the impact His teachings i i ,1
have had on the world.
After all, loosely tying in Thomas
with the Truth often causes
a lie to become somewhat
more palatable. ) Inevitably,
however, upon closer study,
you will find almost all cults
and false religions refuse to
acknowledge Jesus' deity, and
deny His position as LORD.
Can you walk in a gray area
on this matter? Is there one?
Would you really want to pull
the trigger at this point? -
In merely accepting Brian
Jesus as a good man many Lic. No. RB
have already discredited p
themselves, and proven they 1MI
cannot possess absolute truth.
For, (Jesus saith unto him, I
am the way, the truth, and t c
the ife: no man cometh rnto


the Father, but by me. John 14:6 KJV.) It
came from His own lips. Either these are the
ravings of a lunatic, or Jesus is actually who
he claims to be. He cannot be a good man
and a lunatic! Who is He?
The Bible further says of Jesus, (For it
stands in scripture: "See, I am laying in Zion
a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious;
and whoever believes in him will not be put
to shame." To you then who believe, he is
precious; but for those who do not believe,
"The stone that the builders rejected has
become the very head of the corner," and "A
stone that makes them stumble, and a rock
that makes them fall. 1 Peter 2:6-8 NRSV)
So I ask again, "Who do you say Jesus
is?" Is He your solid rock, or the rock you're
stumbling over? I hope you're not sitting
there fiddling with that trigger while you're
staring down this barrel of indecision.
Let me help you. Jesus is who He claimed
to be! He is the Messiah. He is the son of
God, and He is God! He is our only safety,
and unless you confess Him as your Lord
and believe in your heart He was raised from
the dead you will one day die and spend all
eternity in hell. BOOM! There it is. The
squirrel's out of the bag. The buckshot stops
here. I hope this blast jars you to your senses.

Despite Arapian's success in the sponge industry, there had been relatively little Greek
influence in the harvesting of sponges out of Key West. The 'Conchs" (as native Key Westers are
called) protected their beds jealously. Elsewhere in the world, Greeks, who had virtually invented
the sponge industry, held sway over the harvesting and sale of sponges. As far back in classical
literature as Homer and Plato, sponges are mentioned. Over the centuries Greeks migrated with
their experience and expertise to the Bahamas and Cuba. Yet nowhere was their presence more
omnipresent than in the port city of Tarpon Springs, Florida.
Early Greek immigrants were attracted to the Tarpon Springs area during the 1800s, where
they soon developed a thriving sponge flotilla to work the warm Gulf waters. By the turn of the
20th century, Tarpon Springs harbored one of the most prominent sponge fleets in the world.
In 1905, John Corcoris introduced the first mechanized sponge fishing boat to Tarpon
Springs. He imported 500 experienced Greek divers from the Greek islands. These Old World
divers brought with them new equipment, including the now iconic helmeted diving suits already
in use in the Mediterranean. More immigrant families followed with equipment and designs for
boats that would modernize the Tarpon Springs fleet and turn it into the most productive in the
world.
The Sponge Exchange Bank was established, followed in 1908 by the Sponge Exchange.
The Exchange incorporated all aspects of the industry in an organized system for buying and
grading and selling the sponges. It consisted of "cluvas" (storage bins) around the perimeter with
an auction block in the center. The sponge business was booming in those days, financing other
local businesses like grocery stores, restaurants, cigar companies and various service and supply
concerns that sustained a sponge fleet larger than some concurrent navies.
As every place else in the late 1920s, Tarpon Springs felt the effects of the Great Depression.
Yet the sponge industry there managed to stay afloat. In fact, while hundreds of other businesses
failed, the divers continued to perfect their deep-sea diving equipment that propelled profits.
Divers went further down and stayed under water longer than ever before.
As lucrative as the sponge industry could be for some, it was not without its disappointments
and dangers. Not only was the diving dangerous and foul winds or bitter storms typical, but
social life up the Gulf had its pitfalls as well. In 1932, three Greek sponge divers from Tarpon
Springs made the mistake of visiting Miss Nadine's "house" out at Kiss-Me-Quick. They ended
up in jail, but they weren't safe there, either. That night the Cedar Key jail "accidently" burned
down with the sponge divers inside. Farther to the north, running gun battles with Steinhatchee
fisherman occurred.
But the sponge industry had already outgrown local resistance to this Greco-American
enterprise. It had become the largest industry in Florida with the copper diving helmets of the
Greek divers a Florida icon. The helmet also stood as a grating symbol of dominance by the
Greeks over the poles and hook boats of the Keys. Nevertheless, despite bar fights, hurricanes
and blight, the sponge business as a whole would remain Florida's largest industry for the next
thirty years larger than cattle, citrus or tourism. Not until the red tide hit in 1948 did it begin
to decline.
So we return now to that night in 1953 while rowdy Conchs packed The Strand and
Hollywood's romantic sponge saga played out in Cinemascope. Delving into a little local history
makes the matter clear. Now we know why crumpled popcorn bags and paper cups sailed with
oaths and jeers against the silver screen. It just didn't sit too well that the hero of that movie was
none other than their old nemesis: a Greek in a diving suit!

Swinging for a Cure

Tournament with Austin's

Warriors Out to Kick Butt
In 2008, when their son was just nine weeks old, Austin Allen's parents, Natasha and
Patrick Allen, got the devastating news that he had cancer. Thoughts racing, they wondered
how he would survive such a rare diagnosis as Infantile Acute Myeloid Leukemia. A study
drug was offered. They accepted. After five grueling rounds of chemotherapy, Austin
emerged from Shands at the University of Florida at seven months old in complete remission.
While Austin was in treatment his Aunt, Karrie Munkittrick and cousins walked in his
honor at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night walk to raise money and
awareness for blood cancers.
Later, learning that the study drug doctors have said, "made all the difference" was
researched, developed and funded by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the
Allens committed to giving back.
Last year, Austin's Warriors was the top family-and-friends fundraiser, raising even more
than all corporate teams for the LLS in the Gainesville walk.
This year, the goals are higher; the Austin's Warriors plan to raise $12,000. Their first
fundraising event will be held on May 28th at the Chiefland Golf and Country Club. The
Swinging for a Cure Tournament will be a three-man scramble, with cash prizes being
awarded.
To register for the event or for more information, contact Natasha Allen at (352) 210-2490 1 ,1
or visit www.kickingcancersBUTT.info.
About Austin's Warriors,
Austin's Warriors is a team formed in honor of Austin Allen's successful fight against
Leukemia (AML). Austin was diagnosed with Leukemia in Oct 2008 at nine weeks old. He
is been in remission for two years and two months...and as his big brother, Hunter (7) would
say he, "Kicked Cancer's Butt!" He will be celebrating his 3rd birthday in July 2011. Austin's
Warriors want to give back and make it possible for everyone to beat blood cancers. Our goal
this year is to raise $15,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.


Progress Energy Encourages

Safety this Arbor Day J

Plan Ahead For Safe Planting


Choosing the right tree or plant for the
right location is very important. That's why
Progress Energy Florida, a Tree Line USAR
utility, created the "Know Where You Grow"
rights-of-way vegetation-management plan.
Customers and property owners who take
their surroundings into consideration can
save trees while helping prevent energized
limbs, downed power lines and other
dangerous situations.
"Arbor Day celebrations can provide an
annual reminder that the wrong type of
tree planted too close to a power line can
cause significant power outages and safety
issues," said Progress Energy Florida Senior
Forester Rich Alexander. "We encourage our
customers to select appropriate, low-growing
species when planting trees near power lines
and suggest that they hire professionals to
trim any trees growing near our lines."
In addition to preventing outages and
reducing safety hazards, the right tree can
improve energy efficiency by providing
shade and wind protection, reducing water
consumption for the lawn, and providing
beauty to the landscape and a place for
wildlife to dwell.
Customers and property owners interested
in planting trees near power lines are
encouraged to select appropriate, low-
growing varieties. When selecting a tree,
consider these guidelines:
* The mature height and spread of trees must
remain 10 feet away from overhead, lower-
voltage power lines. Small-sized trees
(mature height 15 feet or less) should be
planted around these power lines.
* Medium-sized trees (mature height up to


40 feet) should be planted 25 feet away.
Large-sized trees (mature height 40 feet
or more) should be planted 50 feet away.
Transformer boxes require space, at least 6
feet in front and 3 feet on the sides, free of
plants and other objects.
Power line poles must remain free from
vegetation, including vines.
Progress Energy does not recommend
planting around high-voltage transmission
lines or in easements. Trees growing near
transmission lines can cause a fire and be an
electrical hazard to anyone in contact with
the tree at ground level. Electricity can arc
from the line to nearby trees given the right
conditions (such as a voltage surge on the
line from a nearby lightning strike) seriously
injuring or killing anyone near the tree and
interrupting electrical service to thousands of
customers or whole communities.
Before customers begin an outdoor
digging project for Arbor Day, Progress
Energy reminds them to call Sunshine
State One Call of Florida at 811 at least two
full business days before digging so that
underground utilities (cable, phone, electric,
etc.) can be located and marked. It is also
important to exercise caution when working
outside near power lines.
The company is a proud Tree Line USAR
utility. This honor comes from The Arbor
Day FoundationT, which recognizes that
Progress Energy Florida achieves the right
balance in managing the responsibility to
provide safe, reliable power to more than
1.6 million customers while overseeing the
regions natural habitats.

ceremony, gathered by Margaret O'Brien, Playground
Coordinator who sent in the winning entry, and who said, in
introducing Mr. Griffith; "Good Morning Children. We
have a very special guest with us this morning, Mr. Glenn
S' Griffith of the Florida Wildlife Federation, who is here to

award."


Progress Energy Supports Education in Florida


The Progress Energy Foundation will invest more than
$500,000 in Florida this year to support public school
education projects focused on energy education and
workforce development. The total is $57,000 more than last
year's contribution to aid education in the state.
The Levy County Schools Foundation is one of 18
receiving a grant from the Progress Energy Foundation. They
will receive $20,000 to support career education including
building construction and welding, and enhancements to
math and science curriculum.
"Every dollar we contribute to education is an investment
in the future of Florida," said Vincent Dolan, president and
CEO of Progress Energy Florida. "A strong education system


can help lure jobs to our state and helps ensure we have a
future workforce prepared to meet tomorrow's challenges."
Progress Energy's education grants help engage and
excite children about energy, alternative energy and energy
efficiency and prepare students to enter the workforce.
The Progress Energy Foundation expanded its outreach
to provided funding to 18 education foundations throughout
its service territory to support energy education programs
from kindergarten through 12th grade, with an emphasis
on those that included energy efficiency, renewable energy
and environmental education. Education foundations from

Lake, Levy, Madison, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Pasco,


Pinellas, Polk, Seminole, Sumter and Volusia counties
received funding. Additionally, grants were awarded to Junior
Achievement of West Central Florida (Pinellas County)
and the Levy County Public Schools Foundation to support
workforce development programs for high school students.
Supporting education is one part of Progress Energy's
investment in nonprofit partners in Florida, North Carolina
and South Carolina. The company's grants also focus on
the environment, economic development and employee
involvement. During 2010, Progress Energy invested $9
million in the communities it serves. The Progress Energy
Foundation is funded each year by the company's board of
directors from shareholder funds.

Log Cabin Quilters


Dannia (7) and Ana (6) Johnson proudly showing off their
Easter wall hanging they made. A lot of the work was
done with the help of their grandmother, B J Johnson.
She furnished a great lap to hold the firls when they
needed special help.
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, April 28 at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. It was another busy day.
Alliene brought in lots of Quilt and Craft books so everyone
had a time finding new patterns out of old quilts.
I want to thank Barbara Shewey for the beautiful Florida
Highway Patrol clock as well as her Grits pie. Now, don't
laugh, the pie tastes like a coconut pie. Her husband was
in the Patrol for several years as well as my oldest son, John,
who was in 25 years and we always treasure anything that
pertains to the Patrol. It will hang inside and bring back lots
of memories.
Johnnie and six boys were out Tuesday and they got a lot
done. It takes a lot of work to keep the Museum looking
great. Thanks Lancaster.
I want to thank Robert Carlton of Plant City for all the
wonderful vegetables he brings up when he can and also
Bonnie Hill who also shares her garden.
Thursday lunch was fried chicken, fried potatoes, squash
both fried and cooked, cheese sandwiches, pears, meat balls,
chicken sausage and beans, Barbara's grits pie, pineapple
upside down cake and so much more.

Student Government
The LASC [Levy Association of Student Government]
and SGAs [Student Government Association] from all four
Levy County schools met for their quad-annual project-of-
the-year review on March 26th, 2011. The Bronson, Cedar
Key, Chiefland, and Williston SGAs all are required to
create a book, based on the theme given for the year.,
This year's theme was citizenship and community service.
Each school holds one of the four meetings per year; this
time it was Cedar Key's turn to host. With the responsibility
of hosting the meeting, the school must gather a panel of
judges to judge the books and choose a winner. The winning
book for this year was from Bronson SGA.
Each book had to include each of the following
categories: Fostering Better Citizen Behavior, Patriotism,
Citizenship Responsibilities, any additional projects each
government had participated in, and a summary essay
that sums up the success of the related projects completed
during the school year. SGA member Whitney Tyler said
"It was a really fun experience to be a part of such a great
organization and participating in all the service projects.
Learning to be a better citizen has really made me a better
person."

Time to Apply for Fall's Special-Opportunity Hunts


If you haven't been seeing the quantity or quality of game you'd like, you may want to
consider applying for a special-opportunity hunt. For the past 14 years, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has offered these unique fall-season hunts for
deer, wild hog and released quail on arguably the state's best public hunting lands. Maybe it's
time you look into getting in on the action and experience the hunt of a lifetime.
These extraordinary hunts offer large tracts of land with an abundance of game and low
hunting pressure. All deer hunts enable you to take only mature bucks with at least one
antler having four or more points, 1 inch or longer. Hunters can take does during archery
hunts and, if they draw an antlerless deer permit, also during general gun hunts. This
practice of quality deer management offers hunters excellent chances of taking quality bucks
and the opportunity to take a doe on public land. Wild hogs also are legal to take, and there
is no size or bag limit on hogs.
These special-opportunity deer and wild hog hunts are on Fort Drum (Indian River
County), Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter County), Triple N Ranch (Osceola County) and Green
Swamp West Unit (Pasco County) wildlife management areas.
Fort Drum has 20 permits available for its seven-day general-gun deer and hog hunt on
20,858 acres; they cost $50, should you get drawn. Lake Panasoffkee offers eight four-day
archery hunts on the 8,676-acre tract, which cost $100 each. Triple N Ranch has two seven-
day general gun deer and hog hunts on its 15,391 acres, and each permit costs $175.
And Green Swamp West Unit is where James Stovall took the state's highest-scoring deer
on record a 25-point, nontypical that netted a 206 Boone-and-Crockett score. He took the
trophy buck in 1999 after getting drawn for the special-opportunity archery hunt. The area
offers archery and gun hunts on 34,335 acres, and permits cost $100 each.
The FWC also has week-long released-quail hunts on Blackwater Carr Unit in Santa Rosa


County. With these hunts, you must bring and release your own pen-raised quail. There's
just one $100 permit available for each of the 16 weeks, and if you're lucky enough to draw
one, you and up to three of your friends will have the entire 590 acres to yourselves.
If you'd like to apply for any of these great hunts, the first thing you'll need to do is get a
2011-2012 Special-Opportunity Fall Hunt Permit Worksheet available at MyFWC.com/
Hunting by clicking on "Limited Entry Hunts."
Beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT) on May 3, you can submit your completed application at
www.fl.wildlifelicense.com or at any county tax collector's office or license agent. The
application period runs through June 9.
These coveted permits are issued by random drawing, and you may apply for as many
hunts and dates as you like to increase your chances of being selected. You must include a $5
nonrefundable fee for each hunt you apply for, although hunters are limited'to drawing only
one permit per hunt.
If you're selected in the random drawing, you have until the deadline specified to pay the
cost of the selected hunt. You can do this online at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com or at any
license agent or tax collector's office. If not, you forfeit it, and it'll go to the next applicant
selected in the random drawing.
Whether still hunting by yourself or hunting with family and friends for deer, hogs or
released quail, the FWC's special-opportunity fall hunts are just what the doctor ordered for
a premium hunting experience.
-Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWC's Division ofHunting and Game
Management. You can reach him with questions about special-opportunity hunts or how to apply
at Tony.Young@MyFWC.com.


Beachgoers Can Help Biologists and Horseshoe Crabs


This spring, mating horseshoe crabs will gather at sandy
beaches throughout the state. Biologists with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute need help from the public to identify
horseshoe crab spawning areas.
The best time to find spawning horseshoe crabs is around
high tide, just before, during or after a full or new moon.
The new moon conditions around May 3 and the full moon
conditions around May 17 will create good opportunities for
viewing the spawning behavior of horseshoe crabs.
The FWC asks beachgoers to report the number of horseshoe
crabs they see and whether the horseshoe crabs are mating.
Mating crabs "pair up," with the smaller male on top of the
larger female. Biologists also want to know the date, time,
location, habitat type and environmental conditions, such as
tides and moon phase. If possible, specify roughly how many


are mating adults and how many are juveniles (4 inches wide or
smaller).
FWC asks people to report sightings through one of
several convenient options. Go to MyFWC.com/Contact and
follow the link to fill out an online survey; email findings to
horseshoe@MyFWC.com; or call the FWC at 866-252-9326.


Horseshoe crabs have been
around for approximately
450 million years and are an
important part of a marine
ecosystem. Their eggs are a vital
food source for animals and
birds, such as the red knot.
Horseshoe crabs are
important to humans as well.

If you really want to know why fishing is fun,
all you have to do is take children out and watch
the stream of emotions that light up their faces
as they learn to bait a hook, cast and finally
hook and retrieve a fish. The joy of learning, the
reconnection with nature and our heritage, and
the fulfillment of knowing they can catch their
own -just like the pioneers contribute to those
sensational smiles.
Conservation agencies, guides, facility
planners, anglers and boaters share roles in
making fishing more fun and satisfying for
everyone on the water. They all have an abiding
love for aquatic resources and the conservation
stewardship ethic that help keep our natural
resources pristine.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is striving to create the
next generation that cares through a variety of
education and outreach programs across the
state. However, what makes these programs work
are the staff and volunteers. They are the unsung
heroes of this move-ment to connect chil-dren
and nature.
For instance, Mike Lesso and Dave Morse,
who work with the FWC's Jacksonville Youth
Summer Fishing Clinics, have taught more than
50,000 chil-dren to fish.
"Mike, a high school teacher and avid
sportsman, and Dave, a retired businessman
and passionate recreational and tournament
fisherman, have been teaching children how to
catch fish for so long that many of their earli-est
pupils now have children of their own," said
Eddie Leonard, their supervisor from the FWC's
Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management.
"It's apparent when observing these two that
they love what they are doing," Leonard said.
Youth summer fishing clinics help kids
appreciate fresh-water resources and teach them
the skills needed to catch fish. "These incredible
experiences are delivered completely free of
charge to participants," he added.
The duo typically conducts two workshops
per day in the Jacksonville area, throughout the
summer, reaching more than 5,000 students
during summer break some years. Classes


are provided free of charge. Students should
bring a pen or pencil and paper. An adult must
accompany children under 16 at all times.
Anyone born on or after June 1, 1975,
must complete the hunter safety course before
purchasing a Florida hunting license. The
FWC course satisfies hunter safety training
requirements for all other states and Canadian
provinces.
Those interested in attending a course can
register online and obtain information about
future hunter safety classes at MyFWC.com/
HunterSafety or by calling the FWC's regional
office in Lake City at 386-758-0525.


begin with a 30-minute lecture on ethical
angling, water pollution, fish biology, tackle and
techniques, and several other topics.
"Then the fun starts," Leonard said. They
take the kids to the water's edge. Some children
get frustrated easily or seem distracted at first.
However, once someone catches the first fish,
they are all very much in the moment.
"The expressions on the faces of the kids
catching that first fish are nothing short of
fantastic," Leonard said.
There always seems to be that one kid who
stands out as a true angler, Leonard explained.
"One little girl at a recent event was so successful
that she offered to show the other kids how it
was done. The student became the teacher in 90
minutes."
The FWC main-tains more than 80 fish
management areas statewide and manages public
fisheries in rivers and lakes. Partners help by
providing bait, tackle, advertisements, supporting
materials and fish camps around the state.
Fishing license sales, matching federal funds
and dona-tions support these programs. The
law generally requires fishing licenses if you are
between 16 and 65 years old. However, many
anglers know that buying a license helps fund
fish and wildlife conservation, so they voluntarily
buy one as a way of showing their stewardship
ethic. In addi-tion, you can donate to Florida
Youth Fishing and Hunting Programs when you
purchase a license.
Being an ethical angler includes knowing
the rules and properly releasing fish that you
don't plan to consume or that cannot be legally
harvested.
Fishing clinics provide lots of smiles and great
memories.
Instant licenses are available at MyFWC.
com/License or by calling 888-FISH-
FLORIDA (347-4356).

Levy County School Children Taking the Lead in

Collecting Relief Supplies for Alabama Tornado Survivors


Children at two Levy County schools are collecting
supplies this week to provide aid and relief to families
recovering from the devastating tornados that tore through
Alabama and five surrounding states April 27.
Administrators and teachers at Bronson Elementary and
Chiefland Elementary are working with The Children's
Table, a local non-profit organization that collects and
distributes food to the needy, to coordinate efforts of
children and families from their schools to collect non-
perishable, ready to eat/easy to prepare foods such as canned
soup, chili, stews, pastas and vegetables, granola bars, cereal,
etc. Clean blankets and sleeping bags are also needed.
The Children's Table is working with several other local
organizations to obtain drinking water.


The first two trucks carrying relief supplies will leave
Bronson on Thursday or Friday of this week and will arrive
at a church in Gadsden, Alabama, that has agreed to be a
distribution site. Others will follow in the weeks to come.
For the time being, the organization is only taking food,
blankets/sleeping bags and water, but other items may be
requested as recovery efforts continue into the future. "Right
now," said Bill Brown with The Children's Table, "we're
responding to what has been requested. Food, blankets
and water is what they say they need, so that is what we are
collecting." Other items may be gathered and trucked up in
the future based on requests made coupled with donations of
goods and cash contributions to pay for fuel.


Individuals and other civic, social or faith groups that
want to help gather supplies and prepare them for transport
may contact Bill or Verna Brown with The Children's Table
at (352) 486-6525. Cash donations for fuel to transport
the supplies are also greatly needed and are tax deductible.
Checks to The Children's Table with "For Tornado Relief"
in the memo can be sent to P.O. Box 186, Archer Florida
32618.
For information on other relief efforts, road closings,
contacting relatives in the area, etc, you can contact the local

IMPORTANT
INFORMATION ABOUT
YOUR DRINKING WATER
Otter Creek WTP Has
Levels of Disinfection By-
Products Above Drinking
Water Standards
What happened?
Our water system recently
violated a drinking water
standard. Although this is
not an emergency, as our
customers, you have a right
to know what happened,
what you should do, and
what we are doing to correct
this situation.
We routinely monitor for
the presence of drinking
water contaminants.
Testing results we received
from samples taken
Feb. 22, 2011 show that
our system exceeds the
standards, or maximum
contaminant levels (MCL),
for Disinfection By-Products
(DBPs),which includes Total
Trihalomethanes (TTHMs)
and Haloacetic Acids [Five]
(HAA5s). The standard for
TTHMs is 80 micrograms
per liter (pJL) and the
average level of TTHMs
over the last three calendar
quarters was 235.2 atg/L.
The standard for HAA5s is
60 u/L, the average level of
HAA5s over the last three
calendar quarters was 90.2
Ig/L.
What should I do?
Some people who drink
water containing TTHMs


in excess of the MCL over
many years may experience
problems with their liver,
kidneys, or central nervous
system, and may4 have an
increased risk of getting
cancer.


Some people who drink
water containing HAA5s
in excess of the MCL over
many years may have an
increased risk of getting
cancer.
Any customers who are
concerned about their
exposure to DBPs may
choose alternative sources
of water for ingestion.
What does this mean?
This is not an immediate
risk. If it had been, you
would have been notified
immediately.
What is being done?
This is what we are doing
to lower our DBPs levels:
We are flushing the water
system. We are reducing
the chlorine residual to
help reduce DBPs. We are
increasing sampling for
DBPs. We will inform you
when additional samples
show levels of DBPs below
the MCLs.
The Town Council is
also considering modifying
the system to address
this problem. They are
considering the addition of
automatic flush valves, and
possibly the installation of
carbon filters. They are also
exploring the possibility of
acquiring a new wellhead
site.
We anticipate resolving
the problem within this time
frame: Within the next few
months we hope to have
TTHMs and HAA5s within
the allowable range. We
hope to have a long term
plan within the next six
months.
For more information,
please contact the town
clerk, Rose Severino,
at Town Hall (352-486-
4766). Please share
this information with all the
other people who drink this
water, especially those who
may not have received this
notice directly (for example,
people in apartments,
nursing homes, schools,
and businesses). You can do
this by posting this notice in
a public place or distributing
copies by hand or mail.

property use categories based on EMS call data.

fore discrete property use categories (similar to methodology used for
