Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 88, NO. 30 50 CENTS THURSDAY, JANUARY 26, 2012 By Kathy HilliardEditor e USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) announced that Tim Manning, State Executive Director for Florida FSA and members of his management team have scheduled a public meeting in Levy County for February 3, 2012 at 10 a.m. at the Levy County Agriculture Center in the conference room located at 625 North Hathaway Ave. in Bronson. is FSA meeting will be the only one held to take public comment on the USDAs proposed o ce consolidation plan in which the Levy County FSA o ce is being considered for consolidation into the ag o ce in Trenton. You can also provide written comment by emailing mark.cotrell@” .usda.gov or by sending written comment to USDA Farm Service Agency, P. O. Box 141030, Gainesville, FL 32614-1030 no later than Feb. 13, 2012. All public comments will be taken into full consideration prior to the development or implementation of a “ nal consolidation plan. At the Board of County Commissioners meeting of Jan. 17 the commissioners voted to renegotiate the current lease agreement in order to keep the Levy County FSA o ce in the Levy Agricultural Center by donating the current space occupied by the FSA and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) at no cost to the USDA for the remainder of the current lease. is would be a savings of $32,965.40 per year. e consolidation plan would move the FSA to the Gilchrist/Dixie Farm Service Agency o ce in Trenton. According to Albert Fuller, County Extension Director/4H, the FSA has been in the Levy County Ag Center since the creation of the center and farmers and agriculture producers in Levy County have been able to make a one-stop shop for all their agricultural needs. e consolidation proposal was triggered by the ever-increasing current budget cuts and the move of the Gilchrist o ce a few miles from its previous address which triggered Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySee page 3ASee page 5A 1BSee page Levy LifeSee HOGZILLA!continued on page 2AJust APPROVED BOCC 11/8/11 Minutes e Department of Children and Families has received reports regarding three separate instances of unknown persons impersonating DCF child protective investigators since January 1, 2012. All three reports have been referred to law enforcement. DCF would like to remind parents and anyone involved with children that our investigators will never post allegations or information concerning investigations of abuse or neglect to any public websites, including Facebook. Once a report is made to the Hotline, DCF attempts to respond immediately in person and without notice. On January 2, an unknown male calling from an unknown number identi“ ed himself as "Brian" on a woman's voicemail message. e woman contacted the local DCF o ce and said the unknown male stated the Department had received a report saying she was a drug dealer and that they would be coming to her home the following day between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. He asked that she call the o ce if this time did not work out for her. A search of the state's automated child welfare information system revealed no current or prior reports on the family. On January 9, an unknown female named "Isabella" posted on a man's Facebook page that she was with the Florida Department of Children and Families and was investigating allegations that his child was being neglected and needed to be seen. e post alleged that the child was being "mistreated, neglected and that the child did not have enough food." e man replied to the post that he would contact the local o ce to verify her identity. e man then called the DCF Hotline to report the contact and was later informed there was no current or past investigation. A man contacted the local DCF o ce on January 12 and indicated that in November 2011 and again on January 10, an unknown female identifying herself as "Jessica" with the Department of Children and Families left a message for him on his former employer's voicemail. e unknown female did not leave a return phone number. A review of the system shows that our agency has no active investigations (either currently or from November). If you are contacted by someone representing our Department and want to verify the identity of an investigator, you can call the state Hotline 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-962-2873 or your local DCF o ce. If approached by someone claiming to be a DCF investigator, know that our investigators always carry proper identi“ cation while investigating cases of child abuse and neglect and must produce their credentials.Beware of Imposters Claiming to be DCF InvestigatorsProgress Energy Agreement Proposal Includes $288 Million Rebate to Customers By Kathy HilliardEditor e customers of Progress Energy charged with replacement energy costs due to the closing down of the Crystal River Nuclear Plant (CR3) for repairs from a cracked containment wall will be vindicated if the Florida Public Service Commission signs onto the new agreement proposed and “ led by PE on Friday, Jan. 20. Customers of PE have long held that the cost to replace fuel due to the shutdown for repairs was on Progress Energy not them and they voiced their opinions to the Public Service Commission more than once. According to Progress Energy the agreement proposal submitted for approval will: € Provide for a $288 million refund to customers of replacement power costs associated with the ongoing CR3 outage; € Remove CR3 from the base rates while the company continues to analyze options for the plant; € Limit the costs customers will be charged through 2017 for the proposed Levy County nuclear project; and € Allow for base rates to adjust in 2013, better re” ecting the true costs for the company to maintain and improve the electric system. If approved by the FPSC, the settlement will take e ect with the “ rst billing cycle of January 2013.  is agreement re” ects the hard work of numerous organizations and individuals who recognize that the lingering slow economy continues to a ect many of our customers,Ž said Vincent Dolan, PEF president and CEO.  e agreement helps to ensure the continued safe, reliable and environmentally sound operation of the electric system that serves more than 1.6 million Florida families and businesses.Ž Taking e ect in 2013, PEs base rates will increase by $150 million to cover energy costs to customers but those costs will be o set by the fuel refund to customers in 2013 and 2014. As long as the Crystal River nuclear unit is out of service the base rate for its operation will also be excluded. According to PE, When all the agreement provisions are factored in, the estimated 2013 total (increased) adjustment for the average residential bill is approximately $4.93, or 4 percent, over current rates.Ž e proposal also states that PE is prohibited from seeking any additional cost recovery monies prior to January 2018 and the Crystal River plant must refund the $288 million to customers in the form of credits on their bills over the next four years. PE must start repairs by the end of 2012 or the company will owe $100 million for the costs of replacement fuel to the customers making it a great incentive for the company to get the plant repaired quickly. e other upside is now customers will know what their bills will be each month. e FPSC had previously scheduled hearings for later this year that could have led to passing on part of the repair costs to customers, estimated at $2.5 billion, but with the new settlement proposal from Progress Energy that would be halted. Levy County customers and consumer advocate groups have also argued that it is unfair to charge them for planning and other preliminary costs for the proposed Levy County plant about 10 miles from the Crystal River when it may never even be built. is new agreement limits the costs that PE can charge for the new plant through 2017. In a hearing last week by the Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission in Crystal River opposition to the new Levy County facility is concerned with upsetting the delicate balance of the areas water system and presenting a health risk but supporters spoke of the good environmental track record and the improvement to the Levy County tax base. A formal trial in the fall will be held by the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board on a challenge to the utilitys license application. By Kathy HilliardEditorSgt. James Bond of the Williston Police Department carefully scrutinized the video footage on the security cameras for the Internet Caf at 61 North Main Street in Williston and now has “ nally got his men, the burglars that is. On Nov. 17, 2011 the Internet Caf was broken into at 3 a.m. and a small safe containing approximately $500 was stolen. e security cameras captured the entire incident and Bond recognized and identi“ ed the suspects. On Jan. 11, 2012, through good old-fashioned police work, one of the two suspects, Marvin Cooper III, 24, of NE 40th Street in Williston was arrested. Cooper was an employee of the Internet Caf at the time of the robbery and had purposely left the door unlocked for his accomplice to make entry into the Internet Caf. e second suspect, Shea Colson, 21, of SE 35th Court in Gulf Hammock, was arrested last ursday on Jan. 19. After the door was left unlocked, Colson made illegal entry into the Internet Caf and stole the safe containing the $500.Internet Caf in Williston Set Up for Burglary by Now Ex-EmployeePublic Meeting Called Over Proposed Move of FSA O ce from Bronson to Trenton Marvin Cooper IIIShea Colsoncontinued on page 2A The Red SkyA Modern-Day Pirate’s Tale

Also important are the number of personnel involved. Anthony Drew, Levy County Extension Agent, said, In the federal register the criteria is employees and location within the range of each other.Ž Levy County has only two employees in that o ce while Gilchrist has three.  is is a di erent ag market than 25 years ago,Ž said Drew, commercial agriculture now farms multiple properties and crosses political boundaries.Ž But one area of speci“ c concern for Levy County is the aquaculture industry that already travels 35 miles to Bronson from Cedar Key. is is an important and growing industry that will have to travel even further and take even more time to confer with an agent in the FSA o ce in Trenton. If the consolidation is approved by the SFAC and National FAC the farmers and ag producers in Levy County will have to travel to the Gilchrist/Dixie Farm Service Agency in Trenton for service from the FSA. e Levy County BoCC has made an important move in donating the o ce space with no rent as an added incentive to keep the FSA o ce here in Bronson. If this move is not what you want then the rest is up to you and the farm interests of Levy County to voice your comments and thoughts at the meeting at the Ag Center in Bronson on Feb. 3 at 10 a.m., or email or write your comments to the addresses listed above. — submittedFlorida Farm Services Closing continued on page 2AInternet Caf continued on page 2A Video cameras recorded Cooper leaving the building with Colson who often spent time with Cooper inside the business. Cooper locked up the front doors for the night. After a few minutes, Cooper re-entered the Internet Caf through the front doors and walked to the rear of the building where the north side entrance door is located. Cooper picked up an empty cardboard box and opened the north entrance door to place it in a garbage can just outside the door and remained there for a few moments. Cooper then closed the door and dead bolted it, turned to walk away and then turned back around to unlock the deadbolt. He then walked out of the room and out the front doors. Colson then entered through the north entrance and went through the building to the front counter area to grab the small safe from the ” oor. He carried the safe under his arm and exited the building through the same north entrance he originally came in through. Colson was charged with Burglary to a structure and Grand eft; Cooper III was charged with Burglary to a structure. Both suspects have past histories of burglary also. On Jan. 18, after witnessing a hit and run accident, a caller informed the Levy County Sheri s O ce that the gray truck involved was traveling west on CR 316. Maj. Sullivan and Lt. Mullins were in the area and began looking for the subject at the intersection of SR-121 and Hwy 41. e suspect, Roy omas Willard, 62, of Morriston, was spotted driving the gray Nissan Titan truck with front end damage from the crash and made an illegal U-turn in front of the deputies. Willard was proceeding south on SR 121 from Williston, spotted Sgt. Wells and made another U-turn at the Williston Airport road. Emergency lights were activated in an attempt to stop Williard but he refused to pull over. Willard was driving at speeds up to 75 mph with Sgt. Wells right behind him with lights and sirens activated but continued south on SR 121 weaving all over the road. Deputies feared Willard would possibly cause a head-on collision. When Willard reached the intersection of SR 121 and Hwy 41 he came to an abrupt stop and shot the deputies a bird.Ž Willard continued to reach in the seat with his right hand and was ordered at gun point to show his hands and get out of the truck. Willard refused to exit the truck but did reach out the drivers window and shot a birdŽ with both hands. e large 62Ž 300 lb. Willard had to be physically removed from the truck which was very di cult and he resisted with violence. Willard had to be restrained with two pair of handcu s and was arrested for ” eeing, attempting to elude a police o cer and resisting arrest with violence.

He remembered how things had suddenly gone wrong. Automatic weapons “ re had opened up. ere had been so much screaming then, men dying about him with “ erce curses on their lips. It was as if the hounds of hell had been set on them. He, alone, managed to scramble overboard, repelling back down into one of the speedboats with which his crew had overtaken the hulking ship returning in the stormy night. It had been a bloody torture out there in the squall with the sleek speedboat pounding heavy seas. Visibility was poor in the rain and navigation di cult in the rough wash of the sea. Still, hed managed to rummage in the console and “ nd a “ rst-aid kit with gauze and an elastic bandage inside. Hed packed the wound through his torn shirt and wrapped the gauze tightly with the bandage. at had held him through the night, but now the hound had found him and brought hell with him, he feared. e girl was shouting to the dog, Come here, Hobo! What you got on to now!Ž e woman shouted to the girl, Get that dog back from there, girl. He done got on a snake or somethin.Ž e dog wheezed and whined when the girl wrestled him back by his collar. e man could see the girls feet and then up through the green thatch, her eyes wide in a startled expression. Gram! eres a man in here!Ž What you talkin about, girl? Get yourself back from there, right now!Ž No, for real, Gram! He dead or somethin.Ž Get yourself back! Dont let that dog go in there,Ž the woman commanded as she hurried toward the house and the old shotgun she kept inside. e woman came with the gun raised as she would when approaching a rattlesnake or some rabid creature. ese did sometimes come up out of the dark hammock ranging the coastal plain behind the house. She came to where the girl was standing. e dog barked angrily, squirming between the girls knees, snatching at the double-“ sted grip she had on his collar. I see him. I see that sucker in there!Ž en, in a steadied, commanding voice she said, You better come on out from there, right now! Right now!Ž He saw the barrel of the shotgun raise a palmetto fan above him, but could do no more than let a grimy hand fall from his bearded face. Lord, Lord,Ž the woman said. What is it Gram?Ž  is ugly white man done been shot. Shot bad.Ž e man tried to speak, but there was only the taste of salt and muck in his mouth. It had taken everything the woman and the girl could do to get the man to the house. e girl had tied the dog and gotten into the palmettos with her grandmother to wedge a small shoulder up against the other side of the large man. You must be least 200 pounds of full-growed man, Im tellin you what,Ž the woman said beneath her breath. He tried to help, though now he knew his left knee was injured, too. He and the woman both grunted and groaned their way … straining and limping across the yard. e girl helped to steady the man and guide their awkward formation through the prickly pears before collapsing on the heavy cypress planks of the front steps. ey rested then, all three together on the steps, as if the travail of those thirty yards from the palmettos had made them a crew. Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyThe Red SkyA Modern-Day Pirate’s TalePart OneDeep within the palmetto thicket, he raised himself slightly and blinked before the slumbering gaze of morning. e mosquitoes had found him in the night. Even before the rain had stopped entirely, they had descended over him like a prickly nausea. Beyond the thicket was the weathered house, a sun-bleached shanty. en he saw the large black woman hanging clothes on a line in the sandy yard. She was singing again. He knew now that it had been her singing that had entered his feverish sleep and drawn his cold eye to the light of day. “Glory to God, we gonna meet him again,” she sang.“Glory to God, we gonna see him again….” e rough-cut timbers of the house had long silvered in the sun and salt air. Storm winds had bent and twisted the rusted roof tin at its edges. Still, all in all, the place had a sturdy appearance and the womans song was strong in the breeze. ese things gave him hope as he watched her thick arms rise again to pin white sheets to the line. e sheets ” apped and lifted in the breeze so that he could see out across the marsh grass to where the tidal creek snaked past a long, rickety dock. After that, far out across the marsh, lay small cedar islands with clusters of palms standing against the indigo sky over the Gulf of Mexico. He could not move his left shoulder. e pain from a bandaged wound had gnarled his “ ngers into a frozen “ st and the wound oozed blood through the hole in his shirt. He was weak and nearly delirious as he lay back to rest and to think where he must have come ashore. en he was dreaming again. A screened door opened on the shaded back porch of the house. A young girl in overalls rolled to her knees came out after the dog, a hound bred for hunting. His nose was soon to the ground. e girl called out to the woman and then to the dog, Come here Hobo. Come on back here!Ž e man knew the hound would “ nd him. He also knew the bullet hed taken had ripped through him, and he wasnt going to last much longer in the rising heat. Flies were “ nding the wound now and he knew the dog would come, too. Maybe it was just as well. e white sheets snapped and popped on the line in the shimmering heat. He lay back to wait. e womans voice soared an octave higher, “Glory to God, we gonna be with him….” e boat hed come in must have beached further up the salt creek, he decided. He must have ” oated past the long dock in the storm the night before, but remembered only that he couldnt see beyond his bow in the dark and rain. He didnt remember “ nding the “ rst channel markers. ese had been cypress poles hammered into the shallow bottom, some with re” ectors tacked to them for night access. When lightning would illuminate one of them, hed steer by the green or red ” ashes. Hed found the mouth of the creek and stayed between the high blu s of needle grass after that. He had no memory of getting out of the boat and no explanation for why hed burrowed into the palmetto thicket. Maybe it was that hed seen a light from the house, and the thicket was as far as hed gotten. e dog was barking nearer now. He laid there waiting with the mosquitoes, his good hand over his grisly face. en the dog was upon him, and he saw through his muddy “ ngers the dogs nose punching the palmetto fans. A pink tongue was writhing back over sharp teeth and the barking became deafening and seemed beyond the dog himself, as if the barking reverberated within dark, cavernous walls about him. Suddenly he recollected Mitchs Gold & Diamonds File photoA shadow from pu y white clouds drifted out of the southeast over the vast expanse of salt grasses before them. e man listened to his own heavy breathing and marveled dizzily at the movement of his bloody hand. Oooh, my days,Ž the woman sighed, shaking her head slowly. e girl looked up at both from the bottom step and wondered that she was not frightened of the rough and gory man sprawled above her. Id take some water,Ž the man said weakly. e woman nodded approval to the girl. When the girl returned from within the house, shed brought two large cups of water. e man took one with his good hand. e girl went to the top step with her grandmother and shared the other.  at shot hole in your shoulder got to be tended to,Ž the woman declared. You reckon it catched bone?Ž No,Ž the man replied distantly. You a bad man?Ž the girl asked. Hesh-up,Ž the woman said to the girl. Ifen he is one, he aint gonna tell you!Ž e woman studied the man again; her cautious eye went the full length of him slumped forward on the step below. But look here, Mr. What-cher-name-is ,Ž she warned, dont have us courtin no trouble by getting you up outta them bushes. We is plain folk doin what Jesus say do. Ats all.Ž e man tried to speak, his voice holding in his throat, rasping, I dont mean you any harm.Ž He swallowed and continued, I was raised among good people.Ž He tried to lift his head but lost consciousness again, his minds eye opening slowly beyond the “ eld of time to the long, blue ridges of distant mountains. In his dreaming, a woman was coming down a rocky path. She came with a family Bible in her hand. She was coming, yet in his dreaming she got no closer. e girl said his name. He heard her say it and he opened his eyes to look at her. He wanted to ask how she knew it, but he did not ask yet. He was surprised to “ nd himself in a bed. e screened window was open and he could see the long dock out to the creek. His shirt was o and the shoulder had been dressed with a clean bandage. Im a bit thirsty,Ž he said. e girl pointed to a small jelly glass beside a crockery pitcher on the table beside the bed. He pushed himself up on the pillow. ere was water in the glass, but he took up the pitcher and drank fast at “ rst. en he lay back, resting the pitcher on his belly, drinking small gulps after that and looking at the girl with piercing blue eyes. I aint scared of you,Ž she said, standing up straighter. You dont have to be.Ž Gram says you not hurt bad a she “ rst thought. e bullet gone clean through like it dug a ditch in your shoulder she say. You lost a lot of blood though.Ž He drank from the pitcher again. Howd you know my name?Ž You told me.Ž I?Ž Yeah, while you was out and mumblin some mumbo jumbo, I ask you. And you said it, Red Man.Ž e mans eyes narrowed. Redmond lay back deeper into the pillows with a bemused smile forming at the corner of his lips. Yes, sir,Ž the girl assured him, crossing her arms over her chest. You say your name is Red Man.Ž Next Week Part 2 of this 3-part series. computer tips gator works computing 352-493-1006Ask About Our GWC Pro Care Total Technology Solutions!All electronics require certain levels of maintenance. However, there are a few things that you can do to keep your laptop functioning at its best. One of the most important things is keeping your Antivirus updated and active. is will help protect your operating system, i.e. Windows XP, Vista or 7, from damage by viruses or spyware. Back up your data regularly. Since Laptops are used on the go and the hard drive is running, theres always a chance of being damaged, which can result in lost data. Clean your laptop with proper Electronic Cleaners (NEVER a liquid cleaner!) and canned air. Blowing out the air vents will help protect your computer against dust build up that can clog your fans causing overheating or hardware damage. Now that we have covered what you should do, now lets cover what you should try to avoid. Keep your computer out of direct sunlight for even short periods of time. e heat can damage the screen and other hardware. DONT keep your power cord plugged in all the time, this can eventually kill your battery. Once you have used up your battery life, plug in the AC Adapter (power cord) and let it charge all the way up, then unplug it and use the laptop with just the battery.

The Levy County Journal4AJanuary 26, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 An Ignored ‘Disparity’: Part II Thomas Sowell Creators SyndicateOne of the ways of trying to reduce the vast disparities in economic success, which are common in countries around the world, is by making higher education more widely available, even for people without the money to pay for it. is can be both a generous investment and a wise investment for a society to make. But, depending on how it is done, it can also be a foolish and even dangerous investment, as many societies around the world have learned the hard way. When institutions of higher learning turn out highly quali“ ed doctors, scientists, engineers and others with skills that can raise the standard of living of a whole society The Land of Obama Make-Believe OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateWhere did President Obama go after killing o thousands of Keystone XL pipeline construction and manufacturing jobs? Why, Disney World, of course. Sabotaging work is hard work for Goofy and his pals. And whered he head after that? Why, up to Manhattan for more high-priced campaign fundraisers charging up to $38,500 per partier. e business of wining and dining politically connected donors aint childs play, you know. Obama touted a White House foreign tourism initiative on ursday with Cinderellas castle as his backdrop. America is open for business,Ž he proclaimed chirpily to the rest of the globe. Tell that to the Keystone managers in Canada whom Obama and his State Department rebu ed -after years of planning and review -in order to appease militant environmentalists and Hollywood celebs. e Animatronic Divider robotically lambasted Republicans for pushing him to make a decision this week. But Senate and House Democrats issued the sharpest rebukes to White House obstructionism: President Obamas decision on the Keystone XL pipeline is a major setback for the American economy, American workers, and Americas energy independence,Ž Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., said.  e rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline permit is a missed opportunity to drastically turn this economy around. is pipeline would have created thousands of new jobs and helped to ensure our energy independence,Ž Rep. Jason Altmire, D-Pa., lamented.  is delay is just playing politics with American jobs and American energy security,Ž Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, pointed out. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle scratched their heads as the job-snu erin-chief bolted to Orlandos fantasyland to promote economic growth. But theres no more “ tting place on Earth for the man whose escapist administration occupies the land of make-believe and no consequences. (Bonus moment: Obama got to shake hands with Mickey Mouse, who infamously turned up on a Florida ACORN voter registration form in 2008. Constituent outreach at its most surreal.) On the very same day he quashed Keystone, Obama released his “ rst campaign ad of 2012 -hyping his stellar record on energy jobs. Its Opposite Day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, 365 days a year. Even more comically, the ad touted his exemplary ethics record by quoting a moldy three-yearold endorsement from left-leaning Politifact. And as bipartisan Capitol Hill outrage over the half-billion-dollar Solyndra solar stimulus bust mounts, Obama had the nerve to sprinkle his inaugural campaign spot with -wait for it -solar panels. Instead of supporting new infrastructure jobs in America through an energy independence-enhancing project that has bipartisan legislative support on Capitol Hill, the president ” ew to Disney World to peddle looser visa restrictions in China and Brazil by executive order. He also will expand the Visa Waiver Program (a security loophole-ridden program that was suspended temporarily after the 9/11 terrorist attacks) to speed foreign travel. In case anyone needs reminding, it was the relentless drive of the tourism industry and kowtowing State Department bureaucrats that led to the Bush-era Visa Express Program, which relaxed visa policies, eliminated in-person consulate interviews and opened the door to the 9/11 hijackers. Brazil is just the latest base for al-Qaida and other Islamic jihadi groups. It does not consider Hezbollah or Hamas terrorist groups, and it disbanded its anti-terrorism force in 2009. e Visa Waiver Program and other e orts to expedite the tourist visa process also pose continuing security risks because -as the Government Accountability O ce itself admitted last year -there is still no comprehensive, systematic way to track the 70 million-plus foreign visitors who enter the country on tourist and other short-term visas. Indeed, half of the nations estimated 20 million illegal aliens are visa overstayers. How many of the new Disney foreign tourists whom Obama is touting as Americas economic salvation will fail to return to their home countries after their Obama World visas expire? Well likely never know. And Team Obama doesnt care. In his opening campaign ad salvo, Obama accuses his opponents of being untethered to facts.Ž But this is an administration that believes lowering visa standards and risking homeland security to pump up Disney foreign tourism is a better path to economic recovery than supporting direct American job creation and enhancing energy security. Like the Disney characters he posed with this week, our cartoonish president is wholly untethered to reality.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 and make possible a better and longer life, the bene“ ts are obvious. What is not so obvious, but is painfully true nonetheless, is that colleges and universities can also turn out vast numbers of people with credentials, but with no marketable skills with which to ful“ ll their expectations. ere is nothing magic about simply being in ivy-covered buildings for four years. Statistics are often thrown around in the media, showing that people with college degrees earn higher average salaries than people without them. But such statistics lump together apples and oranges -and lemons. A decade after graduation, people whose degrees were in a hard “ eld like engineering earned twice as much as people whose degrees were in the ultimate soft “ eld, education. Nor is a degree from a prestigious institution a guarantee of a big pay-o especially not for those who failed to specialize in subjects that would give them skills valued in the real world. But that is not even half the story. In countries around the world, people with credentials but no marketable skills have been a major source of political turmoil, social polarization and ideologically driven violence, sometimes escalating into civil war. People with degrees in soft subjects, which impart neither skills nor a realistic understanding of the world, have been the driving forces behind many extremist movements with disastrous consequences. ese include what a noted historian called the welleducated but underemployedŽ Czech young men who promoted ethnic identity politics in the 19th century, which led ultimately to historic tragedies for both Czechs and Germans in 20th century Czechoslovakia. It was much the same story of soft-subject educatedŽ but unsuccessful young men who promoted pro-fascist and antiSemitic movements in Romania in the 1930s. e targets have been di erent in di erent countries but the basic story has been much the same. ose who cannot compete in the marketplace, despite their degrees, not only resent those who have succeeded where they have failed, but push demands for preferential treatment, in order to negate the unfairŽ advantages that others have. Similar attempts to substitute political favoritism for developing ones own skills and achievements have been common as well in India, Nigeria, Malaysia, Fiji, Sri Lanka and throughout Central Europe and Eastern Europe between the two World Wars. Such political movements cannot promote their agendas without demonizing others, thereby polarizing whole societies. Time and again, their targets have been those who have the skills and achievements that they lack. When they achieve their ultimate success, forcing such people out of the country, as in Uganda in the 1970s or Zimbabwe more recently, the whole economy can collapse. Against this international background, the current class warfare rhetoric in American politics and ethnic grievance ideology in our schools and colleges, can be seen as the dangerous things they are. ose who are pushing such things may be seeking nothing more than votes for themselves or some unearned group bene“ ts at other peoples expense. But they are playing with dynamite. e semi-literate sloganizing of our own Occupy Wall Street mobs recalls the distinction that Milton Friedman often made between those who are educated and those who have simply been in schools. Generating more such people, in the name of expanding education, may serve the interests of the Obama administration but hardly the interests of America. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMBy John Randall Are you serious? Are you serious?Ž Response by then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi when asked where in the Constitution Congress is given the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate.President Obama recently gave a speech where he asked Congress for the authority to consolidate six agencies into one and one of the reasons given was to help small businesses.Ž Rather than “ ght the bureaucracy, a business owner would have only one place to go to see if their loan is approved or to seek help selling their goods here and abroad. Where does this authority to helpŽ business come from? Why is our government approving loans?When the Constitution was written, the word regulate generally meant to make regular, so when we, through the Constitution, gave Congress power to regulate interstate commerce, it was meant to aid in commerce by making it regular, rather than the citizens of each state determining individually how to do business with citizens of other states. is is why the Constitution also gives Congress the ability to set weights and measures. It would hamper trade between states if, for instance, Maryland used 15 ounces per pound and Georgia used 16 or if New York set a mile at 5,000 feet and Pennsylvania had no standard length for a mile.We take weights and measures as set in stone, but in the eighteenth century, this was not the case in the US, nor around the world. In France, for instance, there was no standardization and in 1788 Arthur Young wrote in Travels During the Years 1787, 1788, 1789, In France the in“ nite perplexity of the measures exceeds all comprehension. ey di er not only in every province, but in every district and almost every town.ŽOver the years, however, the meaning of regulate has changed and Congress has taken for itself the ability to restrict interstate commerce, rather than promote it. e prime example is the 1942 lawsuit Wickard v. Filburn.Roscoe Filburn, an Ohio farmer, grew twenty-three acres of wheat on his farm and harvested 462 bushels in the summer of 1941. is wheat was to be used exclusively on his farm and was not intended to be sold.During the Depression, the U.S. government placed limits in 1938 on the amount of wheat that could be grown in an e ort to drive up wheat prices to help farmers. How they could think, at a time when national unemployment was pushing twenty percent, that higher prices for food paid by all of us was a good idea de“ es logic, but Filburn was ordered to destroy part of his crop or be “ ned.Filburn fought back, suing the Secretary of Agriculture, Claude R. Wickard, and the case worked its way to the Supreme Court. e Court ruled against Filburn citing the clause of the Constitution that gave the Congress the power to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes. e logic was that Filburn would have purchased wheat if he didnt grow it himself and it might have come from a di erent state. Hence, his growing wheat reduced the amount crossing state lines and therefore, the government had the power to regulate it. Since the Court believes that the Commerce Clause gives the Congress authority to regulate actions fully contained within a state, it must also believe that it can regulate commerce in foreign countries as well, such as Frances wine and cheese industries. With this untapped power, I suggest we begin regulating the world. Our government has done such a wonderful job that I think we should begin exporting our governmental e ciency and e ectiveness. Wouldnt other countries appreciate our help? After all, our government knows better than us how things should be. It has been suggested that each law passed by Congress list the speci“ c part of the Constitution granting the authority to pass that law. Some asked, whyŽ, but I would ask, why not?Ž I believe a surprisingly high percentage of the laws we live under and will live under would cite the Commerce Clause as their authority. Perhaps the 28th Amendment should be the repeal, or at least limiting of, the Commerce Clause. John Randall can be contacted at johnrandall@ironpurpose.com.Yes, Were Serious.

Well have a scavenger hunt there as well!Ž e students and chaperones pay their own expenses … entry fees, bus driver and fuel, and spending money for food and souvenirs.submitted by Lisa Posteraro & Carly Wilson At the downtown library in Gainesville, Anthony Gri th, a 3rd grader at Williston Elementary School, kneels beside the display case holding the sword and shield he created which earned a 3rd place award. Fund raising has become an integral part of the school experience, no matter where! Williston Elementary School is no exception! And the fund raising companies know what carrot to dangle to motivate. Once more, this years reward for the top sellers was a limousine ride all the way to Bubba-Qs in Bronson to enjoy a lunch! A small fee was charged to help defray the expense, but this did not lessen the enjoyment. So just before the winter holidays, those who had sold the most items along with several sta members and PTO o cers headed out to the county seat. For most, such as Caleb Davis, it was their “ rst limo ride. It was coolƒand long! ere were these speakers that you could put your hands on, and they gave an electric charge.Ž Caleb enjoyed chicken tenders once he and his mates arrived at Bubba-Qs. Im with Caleb. at thing did look like a speaker, and it was fun to play with,Ž said Shaw Foran, a 5th grader who was enjoying her third consecutive limo ride as a top fund raiser for WES. When we got out [at Bubba Qs], everyone eating there turned and looked at us and smiled. We got di erent choices. I got a pulled pork sandwich,Ž she added. As always, fund raisers dont work unless people support it, and Williston always supports its kids in all schools. e PTO uses the funds in many ways: helping with “ eld trips and supporting the Accelerated Reading Program are two of the ways. ank you, Williston! And way to go, WES Wildcats! Article submitted and photos by Lisa Statham Posteraro Three groups of students from Williston Elementary School prepare to enter the limousine which will take them to Bronson to enj oy lunch at BubbaQues.

But Chie” and Elementary Students are showing a di erent side of their education, sharing and running. Before school each day the students at CES are running laps before school to complete their requirement to rack up the initial 25 miles of running for the 6th Annual Kids Marathon portion of the Five Points of Life Marathon. e “ nal 1.2 miles will be completed on Sat. Feb. 18 in Gainesville to complete the needed 26.2 miles. Every day they are adding to their run-laps before they enter classrooms to learn their reading, writing and arithmetic. e months before the actual marathon are spent running the 25 miles day by day as the kids from kindergarten through 8th grade are able. But most of all, these months of running are introducing the wonderful world of “ tness into the lives of our youth while volunteers add and verify their log sheets for the marathons “ nal lap. e purpose of the Kids Marathon extension of the Five Points of Life Marathon is to promote good health and physical “ tness by giving the kids the opportunity to accomplish the goal of running an entire 26.2 miles just like marathoners. e di erence is the kids started months beforehand to become eligible to “ nish out the 1.2 miles in Gainesville. is is the “ rst year the students at CES have participated and as they logged on the miles they have received a charm-foot for each mile run added to their own charm necklace. One parent or guardian is permitted to accompany the student on the 1.2 mile run. ere is also a certi“ cate of achievement given to those students who have completed any mileage at all for the Kids Marathon.If you would be interested being a Sponsor please contact Brite Whitaker at 352/224-1728 or email her at bbwhitaker@lifesouth.orgUpholding our youth is the future of our community and this program o ers an opportunity to show them we care and help them realize the great value of “ tness while accomplishing their goal.

Quick Thinking and a 12 Gauge Stops 318 Lb HogzillaOn New Years morning, I, David Hill, my friend James CooterŽ Hiers and James grandson, Bailey Hiers were doing what we love to do, hunt. We discovered the tracks of what appeared to be a really big hog near the area of our camp so we decided to set two of Cooters dogs on it to see if they could catch it. After about an hour or so of trailing the hog we thought the dogs had lost the trail but were very surprised to hear the dogs baying the huge hog not far from where we had initially started to trail it. Cooter and Bailey started walking through the thick brush and after about 50 yards they found the hog holding o the two dogs. When the hog saw Cooter and Bailey it charged them instantly. Cooter drew up his trusty 30/30 and pulled the trigger and snapŽ … nothing happened. Instinctively Bailey pointed and shot the hog with his 12 gauge Browning shotgun, saving his grandfather from harm and dispatching the hog. It was determined later that an already spent round was left in the chamber of Grandpa Hiers ri” e, either from a shot “ red last week on another hog or by Bailey on the previous night of New Years Eve. Our Hogzilla weighed in at 318 pounds which is pretty hefty for a wild hog running loose in the woods. — submitted by David Hill James “Cooter” Hiers and Davis Hill with the hunters’ 318 lb catch.

The two were feted at a recent luncheon held in the school's media center. Naval Sea Cadet Groups Gather for Weekend Field ExerciseCadets from the Manatee Division and the Centurion Battalion of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps began gathering on a Friday evening recently around sunset at Doe Lake in Ocala National Forest to participate in a weekend “ eld exercise. Adult leaders arrived early to set up the GP Medium tents which would house the participants for the weekend while other volunteers prepared the kitchen for the 60 plus cadets and 10 instructors that would need to be fed. Cadets were checked in and grouped into squads, each with a Petty O cer to lead them. A brief welcome from Commanding O cer James McClure set the tone.  is weekend is not about tearing you down, it is about building you up,Ž he stated. Everyone will succeed and have fun.Ž After eating a quick pizza dinner the Sea Cadets headed out on their “ rst night patrol, quickly learning to act as a team. e next morning, awakened by a harsh siren at 5:00 a.m., cadets hastily prepared for inspection and began their PT regimen, part of which was a friendly competition to air up the in” atable zodiacs they would use later that day. By 8:00 a.m. they were all ready for chow which was a welcome spread of pancakes, ham and fruit, enough to fuel them throughout the morning. Navy Seal training was next on the agenda. e squads were debriefed on the previous nights activities and learned new maneuvers and tactics that they would use for their next deployment in the “ eld. Cadets were then reminded of the proper way to board a zodiac and out“ tted with paddle and personal ” oatation device for their turn on the boats. Eight at a time made up a crew, plus the cadet trained to operate the motor. is was a privilege for most cadets who previously had only been underway in a zodiac via their own manpower. After a lunch of MREs, squads strategized about routes they would take once dropped o in the woods, with the ultimate goal to make it back to camp before being caught. Using their recently gained knowledge cadets acted together to “ nd their way through the “ eld undetected. e second evening was a good time to re” ect on the activities of the past day and a half, enjoy new friendships and laugh. Sunday morning was another round of PT, breakfast and dismissal from what was a productive and enjoyable “ eld exercise between two cadet groups demonstrating the goals of this program in a vivid way.US Naval Sea Cadets from the Manatee Division of Yankeetown, led by LTJG Todd Dunn, and the Centurion Battalion from Winter Par k, led by LTGJ James McClure, recently gathered at Doe Lake in Ocala National Forest for a weekend Field Exercise.

Recorded MarriagesWhen I was a kid, it wasnt unusual for me to spend more time preparing for a game than actually playing it. My little brother Heath and I were pretty ridiculous really. I mean, how hard could it possibly be to get ready for back yard wi e ball? You take a plastic ball and hit it with a plastic bat, right? Not us. Wed usually begin the day hauling in fresh dirt from my grandpas garden to build up the pitchers mound wed erected in his yard. en Id send Heath o to snatch a few pillows from the house to use as bases while I spray painted a strike zone on the pump house. After that, wed drag out our aluminum bats and start wrapping the plastic ball with enough black electrical tape to mummify a wooly mammoth. At some point wed eventually get around to singing the National Anthem and announce, Play ball!Ž I can still almost remember my L.A. Dodgers roster like it was yesterday, with the likes of Steve Garvey, Kirk Gibson, Don Sutton, and the Mexican sensation, Fernando Valenzuela. Heath chose to be Nolan Ryan and the Houston Astros. What I wouldnt give to go back and see us imitating those greats. It mustve been hilarious. It was certainly always a production, fully orchestrated with a roaring crowd and a detailed play by play, courtesy of yours truly. Heath stayed madder than a shoe full of “ re ants claiming the crowd cheered louder for my Dodgers. He even had the nerve to try to do his own crowd noises sometimes. What an egomaniac! Given that Ive always possessed such a keen sense of justice, I elected myself to be the rule maker. Heath had his objections, but since I was six years older and sixty pounds heavier, he mostly learned to keep them to himself. Besides, I promised to uphold the most rigid standards of fairness here at Dodger stadium. To make things competitive I unsel“ shly proclaimed I would only take one out per inning. However, even then, Heath learned that if he didnt score his runs early hed be in trouble. Inevitably, toward the end of the game, Coach Tommy Lasorda would bring in his ace pitcher, everybodys hero, big Guy She eld. Big Guy would swagger out to a standing ovation, wink at the ladies, and begin heaving up a fastball clocking in at well over a hundred miles per hour. At least it mustve seemed that fast to little Heath, who stood a scant thirty feet away, already whimpering from the whelps hed su ered under Fernandos non-breaking curve balls. Heath was a trooper though. Hed snug that helmet down tight and nervously edge up to the plate to face me like the little eight year old man Id forced him to be, else he knew hed take a beating. On those rare occasions the Astros led by the end of regulation, the head umpire (also me) would instate the  ree outs in the last inning rule for the Dodgers. Heath would get so mad he could just spit. However, since hed learned spitting was cause for ejection, most of the time hed just throw down his glove and run in the house crying. At which point, hed be disquali“ ed and the Dodgers would be declared winners by default!Youre probably thinking, What a louse!Ž I dont blame you. Clearly Heath had no respect for my authority. JUST KIDDING! Obviously it was me who took no thought for the feelings or property of others. I was the self-absorbed one, determined to get my way at all cost, even if it meant bullying an eight year old. Yes, I was the egomaniac, self righteous, exalting myself and making up the rules as I went. I dont blame you at all if youre feeling a little disgusted with me.I just hope I can raise my kids to do better. Ive got my work cut out for me. Have you examined some of these people our kids are encouraged to look up to these days? A lot of them display some pretty nasty traits themselves. e di erence is, these days theyre being applauded for it! Is there any distinction left between being famous and being infamous in America today? You ask a kid what he wants to do with his life youre likely to hear, Whatever it takes to get on TV dog.Ž If thats what were teaching our children its no wonder our society as a whole is beginning to deny the existence of an absolute truth, and particularly the One who spoke it. eir consciences demand it. By Gods grace I “ nally learned that we are not the head umpire! ere is a God, the God of the Bible; the only true God. His Word is the absolute Truth. Sure, we can deny it, we may even get our 10.3 minutes of fame, but dont think we wont be held accountable one day. Jesus warned, (But all who reject me and my message will be judged on the day of judgment by the truth I have spoken. John 12:48 NLT) But anywayKids need a lot of help preparing for this game of life. Most importantly, they need to be introduced to Jesus, a true Great for them to imitate. Im not sure at what point this concept may have gone out of vogue here in America. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.
