Artillery Noise at Camp Blanding in Starke Next Week By Kathy HilliardEditorExplosive noise on Camp Blanding will increase from March 5th through the 9th, according to a press release from the Florida National Guard and Department of Military A airs. e Camp Blanding Joint Training Centers Pinner Range near Starke will be the site where the Florida Army National Guards 3rd Battalion (Plant City), 116th Field Artillery will be “ ring their new HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System). is exercise will take place during the week of March 5 … 9, 2012 to familiarize the unit with the new equipment and conduct live “ re exercises for certi“ cation to crews on their assigned systems. According to SFC Blair Heusdens, Public A airs Specialist for the FNG, these new HIMARS are wheeled vehicles instead of the older track models so they were driven to Camp Blanding from Plant City for this exercise. e older track models had to be shipped to Fort Stewart, Ga. previously for testing and certi“ cation. Huesdens said the MLRS rockets carried on the HIMARS are meant to engage enemy vehicles and artillery at long ranges up to 26 miles. e Florida National Guard makes every e ort to minimize noise but there are times such as this when noise may seem louder than normal to the public and as the wind shifts direction. Residents near the training center can discuss noise concerns with Camp Blandings Range Control O ce at 904/682-3351 or the Florida National Guard Public A airs O ce at 904/823-0166.For the more techy readers, GlobalSecurity.org gives this information on the HIMARS: e High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) is a highly mobile artillery rocket system that o ers MLRS (Multiple Launch Rocket System) “ repower on a wheeled vehicle, making it an ideal system for the mediumweight brigades under the new Army Vision. e HIMARS launcher, a wheeled vehicle, is lighter in weight compared to the MLRS M-270 launcher. It weighs approximately 15 tons, compared to 27 tons for the M-270. e HIMARS provides a lightweight, C…130 transportable version of the M…270 multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) launcher. Mounted on a 5…ton family of medium tactical vehicles (FMTV) truck chassis, it will “ re any rocket or missile in the MLRS family of munitions [MFOM]. e HIMARS “ res either six MLRS rockets or one Army Tactical Missile. e HIMARS launchers have some commonality with its older and heavier tracked cousins, the M270 and M270A1 launcher systems. e HIMARS design concept includes the familiar launcher module, “ re control, and digital command and control systems, and a self-reload capability. e HIMARS uses the same command, control, and communications, as well as the same crew, as the MLRS launcher but carries only one rocket or missile pod. It can roll on and o a C…130 transport aircraft and, when carried with a combat load, is ready to operate within 15 minutes of landing. Because of the lighter weight of using one pod rather than two, it has a faster time, compared to the M270, from the point the “ re mission is received to the actual munition “ ring.

A Modi“ ed Phase I alert remains in e ect for the remaining counties in the Districts region. Please check the map included with this notice for Levy County area included in the SWFWMD. Under Phase III, lawn and landscape watering will be reduced to once per week starting March 10 on a speci“ ed day based on address. Microirrigation and hand watering of non-lawn areas still are allowed any day; but like all irrigation, it must occur before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Groundwater and surface water conditions continue to experience a downward trend based on lack of rainfall. Generally, conditions are worse in the “ ve most northern counties than other regions of the District. Water utilities and other large users in the northern counties dont have access to water stored in reservoirs and aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) well“ elds like utilities operated in the central and southern counties of the District. Phase III also includes restrictions for other water use activities. For example, pressure washing for aesthetic purposes will be prohibited. Residents also can wash vehicles only once per week. e Phase III order gives local enforcement agencies the power to immediately issue citations instead of warnings for “ rst o enses. Groundwater levels have been critically below normal for more than 12 weeks now, and river and lake levels are so low that some boat ramps have been closed,Ž said Lois Sorensen, District demand management program manager. Everyone needs to do their part.ŽModi“ ed Phase III (Extreme) Water Shortage Restrictions E ective Dates and A ected Areas€ Modi“ ed Phase III water shortage restrictions are scheduled to begin on March 10, 2012 and expire on June 30, 2012. € e restrictions a ect Hernando, Citrus, Sumter, Lake and Levy counties as well as the City of Dunnellon and e Villages in Marion County.

WPD O cer Strachan answered the call and saw the suspect on the second ” oor of the building when he arrived. O cer Strachan turned on his ” ashlight and climbed up the steps and observed the suspect hiding behind a wall that protruded into the hallway. O cer Strachan shined the light on the suspect, James Ahmad Manns, 26, and asked what he was doing there. Manns said he lived there and named the apartment number but when asked for his identi“ cation the card showed an Ocala address on it. Manns had his hood pulled very far down over his face and would not look up at the o cer. When asked if he had a key to the apartment Manns said no because management had not given him one yet.Still very suspicious, O cer Strachan asked if there was someone in the apartment to which Manns said yes. Manns and O cer Strachan approached the door and O cer Strachan knocked on it. After a few minutes someone answered the door asking who was there. O cer Strachan announced who he was and the occupant opened the door just a crack to verify that information. When she saw Manns she immediately asked why heŽ was there and stated in an uneasy manner that Manns did not live there. Suddenly Manns used his right shoulder to shove O cer Strachan backwards and o balance and rushed the door forcing it to open into the occupant who was pushed backwards by the door. Manns ran into the apartment, decidedly uninvited, while the occupant ran out of the apartment into the hallway to escape. After a struggle within the apartment, O cer Strachan was able to take Manns to the ground and cu him in the bedroom. Further investigation revealed that Manns and the occupant were at one time in a relationship but had split up and Manns went to live with his mother in Ocala. Manns thought the occupant had another man in the apartment and was going to confront them. He had parked his vehicle at the Levy County Medical Station in Williston to avoid detection by his former girlfriend. WPD once again gets their man who was processed and transported to the Levy County Jail where he was charged with Battery on an O cer, Battery with Intentional Touch or Strike, Resisting an O cer with Violence, and Burglary of an Occupied Dwelling Unarmed.

The Levy County Journal4AMarch 1, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 The Progressive Legacy: Part III Thomas SowellCreators Syndicate e same presumptions of superior wisdom and virtue behind the interventionism of Progressive Presidents eodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson in the domestic economy also led them to be interventionists in other countries. eodore Roosevelt was so determined that the United States should intervene against Spains suppression of an uprising in Cuba that he quit his post as Assistant Secretary of the Navy to organize his own private military force -called Rough RidersŽ -to “ ght in what became the Spanish-American war. e spark that set o this war was an explosion that destroyed an American battleship anchored in Havana harbor. ere was no proof that Spain had anything to do with it, and a study decades later suggested that the explosion originated inside the ship itself. But Roosevelt and others were hot for intervention before the explosion, which simply gave them the excuse they needed to go to war against Spain, seizing Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Although it was a Republican administration that did this, Democrat Woodrow Wilson justi“ ed it. Progressive principles of imposing superior wisdom and virtue on others were invoked. Wilson saw the indigenous peoples brought under The High Priests of EcoDestruction OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateRick Santorum is right. Pushing back against Democrats attempts to frame him as a religious menace, the GOP presidential candidate forcefully turned the tables on the White House: When it comes to the management of the Earth, they are the antiscience ones.Ž Scrutiny of the White House anti-science brigade couldnt come at a better time (which is why Santorums detractors prefer to froth at the mouth about comments he made four years ago on the existence of Satan). Its not just big-ticket scandals like the stimulus-subsidized Solyndra bankruptcy or the Keystone pipeline debacle bedeviling America. In every corner of the Obama administration, the radical green machinery is hard at work -destroying jobs, shredding truth and sacri“ cing our economic well-being at the altar of environmentalism. --Take Obamas head of the National Park Service, please. While serving as the Paci“ c West regional director of the NPS, Jon Jarvis was accused of at least 21 instances of scienti“ c misconduct by Dr. Corey Goodman, a high-ranking member of the National Academy of Sciences. Extensive information about Jarvis alleged role in cooking data about a California oyster farms impact on harbor seals at Point Reyes was withheld during the 2009 nomination process. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has ignored complaints and follow-up from both Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Sens. James Inhofe and David Vitter. e National Research Council determined that the NPS had selectivelyŽ slanted its report on the oyster farm. e federal Marine Mammal Commission found that the data and analyses are not su cient to demonstrate a causal relationshipŽ between the farms operations and harbor seal health. In a letter blasting the NPS for bullying the small oyster farm, Feinstein -normally a reliable eco-ally -concluded earlier this month that the crux of the problem is that the Park Service manipulated science while building a case that the business should be shuttered.Ž Given Salazars own role in manipulating science while building his case for the White House o shore drilling moratorium -actions for which several federal judges spanked Salazar in the past two years -its no wonder hes looking the other way. Remember: Two years ago, Salazar and former Obama eco-czar Carol Browner falsely rewrote the White House drilling ban report to wholly manipulate the Obamaappointed panels own overwhelming scienti“ c objections to the job-killing edict. Despite repeated judicial slaps for their determined disregardŽ for the law, the Obama administration continues to suppress documents related to that junk science scandal. Last month, House Republicans threatened to subpoena the Interior Department for information. Call it a greenwash. --Water wars and the Delta smelt. e infamous, endangered three-inch “ sh and its environmental protectors continue to jeopardize the water supply of more than 25 million Californians. Federal restrictions have cut o some 81 billion gallons of water to farmers and consumers in Central and Southern California. Previous courts have ruled that the federal biological opinions used to justify the water cuto were invalid and illegal. Last September, the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of California admonished two federal scientists for acting in bad faith.Ž e judges blistering rebuke of the Obama administration scientists concluded that their slanted testimony about the delta smelt was an attempt to mislead and to deceive the Court into accepting what is not only not the best science, its not science.Ž GOP Rep. Devin Nunes, who represents the hard-hit San Joaquin Valley area, noted that Salazar recently doubled down on the illegal policies of the Department of Interior and attacked critics as narrow minded and politically motivated. Ironically, these were the same basic criticisms levied against his department by the federal court.Ž While Salazar manufactures a new biological opinion on the matter to get the courts o his back, unemployment and drought plague the Central Valley. And the White House stands by its scientists.Ž --Dams in distress. In Siskiyou County, Ore., local o cials and residents announced last week that it intends to sue Salazar and Team Obama over their potential removal of dams on the Klamath River. Once again, the administrations systematic disregard for sound science and the rule of law is in the spotlight. Salazar is expected to make a decision by the end of March on environmentalists demands that four private hydroelectric dams be demolished to protect salmon habitats and createŽ demolition and habitat restoration jobs. Opponents say Salazar has already predetermined the outcome. Green activists blithely ignore the massive taxpayer costs (an estimated half-billion dollars) and downplay the environmental destruction the dam removals would impose. GOP Rep. Tom McClintock put it most charitably: To tear down four perfectly good hydroelectric dams at enormous cost is insane.Ž People of faith arent whats bedeviling America. Blame the high voodoo priests of eco-destruction in Washington who have imposed a green theocracy on us all. Science be damned.

He said, they are children and we are men in these deep matters of government and justice.Ž If that sounds racist, it is perfectly consistent with President Wilsons policies at home. e Wilson administration introduced racial segregation in Washington government agencies where it did not exist when Wilson took o ce. Woodrow Wilson also invited various dignitaries to the White House to watch a showing of the “ lm  e Birth of a Nation,Ž which glori“ ed the Ku Klux Klan -and which Wilson praised. All of this was consistent with the Progressive era in general, when supposedly scienti“ cŽ theories of racial superiority and inferiority were at their zenith. eodore Roosevelt was the exception, rather than the rule, among Progressives when he did not agree with these theories. Consistent with President Wilsons belief in racial superiority as a basis for intervening in other countries, he launched military interventions in various Latin American countries, before his intervention in the First World War. Woodrow Wilson was also a precursor of later Progressives in assuming that the overthrow of an autocratic and despotic government means an advance toward democracy. In 1917, President Wilson spoke of heartening things that have been happening within the last few weeks in Russia.Ž What was hearteningŽ to Wilson was the overthrow of the czars. What it led to in fact was the rise of a totalitarian tyranny that killed more political prisoners in a year than the czars had killed in more than 90 years. Although Wilson proclaimed that the First World War was being fought because  e world must be made safe for democracy,Ž in reality the overthrow of autocratic rule in Germany and Italy also led to totalitarian regimes that were far worse. ose today who assume that the overthrow of authoritarian governments in Egypt and Libya is a movement toward democracy are following in Wilsons footsteps. e ultimate hubris of Woodrow Wilson was in promoting the carving up of whole empires after the First World War, in the name of the self-determination of peoples.Ž But, in reality, it was not the peoples who did the carving but Wilson, French Premier Georges Clemenceau and British Prime Minister David Lloyd George. Walter Lippmann saw what a reckless undertaking this was. He said, We are feeding on maps, talking of populations as if they were abstract lumps.Ž He was struck by the ignorance of those who were reshaping whole nations and the lives of millions of people. He said of this nation-building e ort: When you consider what a mystery the East Side of New York is to the West Side, the business of arranging the world to the satisfaction of the people in it may be seen in something like its true proportions.Ž But Progressives, especially intellectuals, are the least likely to suspect that they are in fact ignorant of the things they are intervening in, whether back in the Progressive era or today. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Major-metropolitan newspapers may be a slowly dying breed, but community newspapers prove that American journalism is alive, well and living in the rural areas, small towns and suburbs of our land. e word "newspaper" may conjure mental images of a big pressroom, delivery trucks and eight-column banner headlines, but 97% of U.S. papers have a paid circulation of less than 50,000. eir combined circulations, though, exceed 109 million more than 3 times the aggregate total of the big daily newspapers. ese are the community newspapers. ey are sta ed by professional journalists, but their news coverage is locally-oriented. High-school sports and academics, zoning issues, petty crime, neighborhood events, clubs, services, organizations, festivities and milestones this is the stu that the local news beat is made of. It is the sort of focus that big-city papers have increasingly lacked both the time and the inclination to provide. is single-minded dedication to meeting the needs of their audience has set the community papers apart from their big-city brethren. Major-metropolitan newspaper circulations began declining when they lost touch with readers and advertisers, long before the advent of the Internet. Today, the concentration on consumer demand distinguishes the community newspaper product from that of advocacy journalists and hyper-localists. e faddists are motivated by ideological or topical considerations extrinsic to their relationship with their customers. e bond between the community papers and their readers is organic. University of North Carolina journalism instructor and textbook author Jock Lauterer summed up this relationship neatly: "Community journalism... is the heartbeat of American journalism, journalism in its natural state." at heart beats today as robustly as it did in 1953 when the little Tabor City (NC) Tribune won a Pulitzer Prize for its expose of local Ku Klux Klan activities. It was the “ rst Pulitzer award ever made to a weekly newspaper. e category "community newspapers" includes small daily newspapers, whose skeletal structure mimics that of the major-metro papers but which cover little or no metropolitan, Community Newspapers: The Heartbeat of American JournalismŽ

It was the early spring of 1817, the French-Indian, Dubois, and his Seminole wife Joie had followed the rivers easterly path down to the post on a high, clay bank along the lower Suwannee. Dubois led a shaggy pack horse heavily laden with bundles of hides. Behind them, Joie walked in tandem with Hokt, a constantly chattering and quarrelsome older woman found on their winters hunt widowed, abandoned and wandering in the wild out from the Miccosukee. ere had been disquieting talk along the trail the day before. Arbuthnot the elder, the Scots trader up from the post operated by his son, John, had cautioned of strange sightings along the Suwannee path. e lilt in old Arbuthnots rasping voice was evident as he spoke of a lone and rootless Choctaw, a conjurer known as Owl Mocker. ough Dubose fended o his dread of the fabled shape-shifter (said by night to take the form of an owl or by day that of a raven, bear or snapping turtle), Hokt had been certain the man-creature approached their camp during the previous night. Now, on the slight ridge where they camped above the post, John Arbuthnot had joined them to make a meal of “ sh hed obtained in trade with natives of the Seminole village up river known as Bowlegs Town. e women had splayed the bass on skewers made of greenwood over oak coals. e meal had been taken leisurely as they reclined by the “ re on pallets of deer hides Dubose would o er in trade in the morning. Dubose built the “ re up again. After a long silence, Arbuthnot spoke admiringly of the deerskins. Well make a good trade tomorrow, me friend. Youll have a “ ne line of chalks here, I wager.Ž Many chalks,Ž Dubose agreed, referencing the manner in which the hides were graded, weighed and totaled by chalk hash marks on the stores counter. en Dubose reached over the pack saddle behind him and produced a fat bundle. Also this, John Arbuthnot.Ž Dubose unfurled the wad, opening over his leather leggings a large dark fur, so thick and lush with a silken sheen that it virtually shimmered in the “ relight. Oh my!Ž John Arbuthnot exclaimed, leaning in. Shes a royal beauty, that one. Its otter, am I right?Ž Otter,Ž Dubose a rmed. Many a “ ne cape or collar, belts and sashes, too, that “ ne fur will be on some proper ladys gown.Ž Duboses thoughts weighed more toward guns and ammunition, steel kettles, knives and hatchets, cashes of beads and buttons, fabrics and clothing ready-made, jewelry and tobacco and maybe rum. But too many now traded more heavily for rum. Hed even seen them trade their wearing shirtŽ for a single gulp when down to their last. Unscrupulous traders sometimes prompted these wayward trades, but the Arbuthnots did not. Nearby, from a low limb up a spreading oak beyond the camp“ re light, English riding boots swung beneath the knotty knees of the conjurer. A mean grin had formed over his grotesque face. e heel print of the moon in the deep purple sky above vested an eerie light in his eyes. When John Arbuthnot retired to the sparse living quarters in the back of his store, he barred the door and extinguished his lamp. As the camp“ re in the oaks fell to somber coals, Dubose and Joie lay wrapped in their blankets on the pallet of hides they shared. Hokt stirred uneasily on hers, but exhausted from the days trek, fell deeply into sleep. Dubose slept with the odor of the rich, leafy soil beneath him entering his nostrils and the scent of wood smoke over their blankets. e horse hobbled nearby snorted and grunted, then lifted his head abruptly at the haunting sound of a horned owl deep within the wet forest along the river. e lustrous, valuable otter skin had been folded back upon itself and stored with the cleaned hide exposed protecting the fur. Dubose had bound it back tightly with buckskin ties and returned it to the packsaddle beside him. It was there in shadowy form in the moonlit mist about the camp. en it was gone. e horse snatched at his hobble and shied in fright with a great exhale of breath. Rolling to his knees, Dubose instinctively snatched up his ri” e, alert and ready to “ re. e women sat up at once, then dropped quickly to peer about anxiously from their elbows. e foggy night was now still all about them. Nothing scurried into the dark palmettos or ” urried in the trees where moonlight in the fog settled from the warm river over silvery boughs. e morning star hung above the canopy of trees as the “ rst light of day formed in a rosy sliver along the eastern rim of the great forest. It was not until their “ re had been rekindled and Dubose was making ready his bundles of hides to trade that he realized the otter skin was out of place. No, missing. Stolen? What is it?Ž his wife asked him?  e otter.Ž She came over to where he impatiently looked about. No,Ž he said. It is not here!Ž Hokt began to cackle and scold. She had warned of this, she said. e baneful Owl Mocker was certainly to blame. ere were no tracks, no telling sign whatsoever by which Dubose could refute her superstitious claims. Later that morning, Dubose appeared at Arbuthnots store to make his trade where John already stood behind the long counter. Made of ships planking, it had been oiled, darkened and worn smooth by the tug of hides. A large brass scale was on prominent display. While the women waited outside, the men made friendly acknowledgment of one another and set immediately to the business at hand. Dubose carried in 68 hides in all and they were “ nely dressed, which brought more. is was almost twenty hides more than an annual average of the best native hunters at the time. e “ rst of the winter-kills Dubose had sacri“ ced in the woods, as hed been taught by the men of his mothers clan. e best parts of the venison, the fat pieces and milt, had been fed to the “ re in thanksgiving and for divine care and continued success in the hunt. e smoke of the “ re had carried his gifts aloft into the mysterious world where animal spirits communed with his ancestors. Arbuthnot weighed all of the skins, and each was at least two pounds and pronounced to be of excellent dressed quality. e women had scraped and cleaned all ” esh from them, stretched and set them on bentwood frames to dry in the sun. e hair had been scraped, too, and the hide saturated with a solution of deer brains and water before being dried again over the smoke of a “ re pit. Pigment made from berries or hickory nuts colored the leather which was then pounded until soft and supple. ese were fully dressed skins. Half-dressed with the hair on them brought less. Raw or green skins, merely dried, even less. Arbuthnot was assigning at least two and generally three chalks to each hide. Said and done, Dubose tallied 180 chalks, an outstanding hunt to be sure. en the bartering began, for value must be assigned to the tally of chalks. As a rule of thumb, that value in sterling equaled one half of what the hide would bring in Europe. A metal pot, pouch of tobacco or enough calico to make a skirt might be gotten for three chalks. It was the Arbuthnots reputation for fairness and advocacy for native hunters that brought Dubose south rather than trade with those licensed in the upper towns by the Spanish Crown to monopolize trade in Florida. Now the women had entered to quietly gesture their guidance in his selection of trade items. Dubose made his “ rst picks according to custom and chose gun powder and lead as priorities to provision his next hunt. ere followed practical items, especially hatchets and axes from Scandinavia, skinning knives and shears from Germany. e women pointed out fabrics from woolen mills in Great Britain or manufacturers in France. Vermillion from China by way of Britain and the Bahamas was valued for dying fabrics or mixing with bear fat for war paint. Ribbons and scarves and Venetian glass beads all accumulated over the broad counter as John Arbuthnot subtracted the tally of chalks. en he looked up suddenly and inquired about the magni“ cent otter skin Dubose had shown him the night before. Dubose maintained a ” inty countenance and “ nally said simply, Owl Mocker.Ž Oh my, no,Ž Arbuthnot moaned. Not you, too. Is this Owl Mocker to be blamed for all mischief or bleating loss in these parts?Ž Hokt pressed forward and wagged her boney “ nger at Arbuthnot. Owl Mocker,Ž she squawked irritably, her eyes wide and piercing. Owl Mocker!Ž Arbuthnot yielded with a heavy shrug and began to parcel the trade goods, tossing in a lengthy swatch of oiled cloth to make a bundle of the fabrics. Dubose had his horse packed with all he had acquired, pleased with his trade. e women, too, were happy with their “ nds, although Hokt had insisted under her breath that each trade item was worth less, or the skin more in each transaction. Dubose then bid a fond farewell to Arbuthnot as the larger man leaned against the hewed door brace smoking his clay pipe. Some miles upriver later in the day, Dubose saw the Seminole hunter Menawa coming down the Suwannee path with his hides for trade. Hokt was still ranting that he had been gullible with Arbuthnot, all too nave in his negotiations. Dubose hushed her. Menawa moved forward again, but guardedly. His wife and two daughters were with him and Dubose sensed that all were watchful and alert about the approach of his party. It was not until he recognized Dubose positively that Menawa raised his hand in greeting. He was a warrior well-known for his “ erceness in battle. You have made your trade, Dubose?Ž Menawa asked. Yes. A good trade.Ž Is good,Ž Menawa said. Watch closely on the path, Dubose.Ž He paused, as if his mind must clear. In the morning,Ž he said slowly, we saw a great bear. Larger than any I have ever seen. Now my women are made captive by this fear, but I also could not believe my eyes. is bear sprang from the path into the mist over the cypress slough. I saw him myself, but only his rump high from the ground as a man is tall.Ž You are sure, a bear?Ž I trust my eyes.Ž Hokt began to murmur behind him, but Dubose quieted her again. He thought not to speak of Owl Mocker, embarrassed more by the theft of his valuable otter skin than his recent conviction that the conjurer actually made dark magic. Menawa looked at Dubose curiously, aware he was holding back. e warrior looked to the women then, who cast their eyes back to Dubose. So Menawa spoke. Owl Mocker?Ž he asked “ rmly. Owl Mocker,Ž Dubose acknowledged with a solemn nod. Menawa threw back his great head and laughed so loudly his deep laughter resounded in echo from the river. I know these tales women tell at the “ reside,Ž Menawa announced boldly. I saw a bear. e largest bear ever seen in these woods … not that runt of a thieving Choctaw!Ž Dubose stood erect, though without challenge or care to caution further. Menawa led his packhorse past with a grunt like that of a big buck. As his wife and daughters passed, they searched the eyes of Joie and Hokt for reassurance, or was it understanding? Dubose led on up toward the sulfur spring. Menawa was laughing again far back down the trail. Deep in the slough that lay away from the rivers rocky rim, the conjurer sat on an enormous rotting cypress log. He wiped his furrowed brow with the back of his grimy hand. e grotesque features of his face adjusted to suck from another of the turtle eggs amassed before him. He was still dressed in his breach clout and high English boots, except now he wore a “ ne cloak of magni“ cent otter skin, thicker and more resplendent than the coat of any bear. He groaned and belched before he sucked another egg, then shook his long, greasy mane in puzzlement at the emptiness of its brittle shell. e sound of Menawas bold laughter rang out again through the cypresses, and Owl Mocker jerked about with a startlingly suspicious glint. Rancid as the sloughs water, his eyes darted rapidly as ravens ” ight back toward the Suwannee path.

The Levy County Journal8AMarch 1, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 My name is Kyle Quincey and I am campaigning for the district 2 seat on the Levy County School Board. I believe that I have the unique blend of education, experience, and investment that make me a highly quali“ ed candidate to serve on our school board. I am a lifelong resident of Levy County, and a 1989 graduate of Chie” and High School. After high school, I earned an Associates of Arts degree from Santa Fe Community College and transferred to Florida State University where I earned a Bachelors and Masters Degree in exceptional student education. When I completed my education, I accepted a job teaching ESE at Bronson Middle/High School. During my eight and a half years as a teacher, I was able to be involved in many aspects of the school ranging from administrative duties to athletics. I was fortunate to work under several administrators who trusted me to serve as a substitute administrator in the event of their absence. While at BHS, I continued my education by taking multiple classes towards a certi“ cation in educational leadership. During my time at BHS, I also served as middle school baseball coach. ese opportunities at BHS give me a very in-depth view of what it takes for a school to function properly from the administration to the classroom to the athletic programs. After eight and a half years of working with some very talented and wonderful people at BHS, I was given the opportunity to follow in my father Jack Quinceys footsteps. I am currently an insurance agent at Nature Coast Insurance in Williston. I have also been blessed to serve as trustee at Central Florida Electric Cooperative for the past 7 years where I currently serve as Vice President. e experience gained by serving on this board is incredible. As a trustee, it is my responsibility to approve a multi-million dollar budget and make planning decisions that will guarantee that CFEC will continue to provide reliable service to all its customers. I also have to work in conjunction with CFEC sta and eight other board members to insure our service and “ nancial goals are met. I have been married to my wonderful wife, Valerie, for the past 15 years, and God has blessed us with two wonderful children. Grant is nine years old and a 3rd grader at Chie” and Elementary School. Grace is seven and in 1st grade at CES. Our family is a member of Pine Grove Baptist Church where I serve as adult Sunday School teacher. Grant and Grace are very active in the Chie” and Area Athletic Association where Valerie and I have had the opportunity to coach them. My greatest investment is my family and speci“ cally Grant and Grace. rough my 8 years of experience in education, I understand what it takes for a school system to function e ciently and e ectively. I want to use my knowledge and experience to insure that your greatest investment is protected. My family and I are very excited about the future, and we look forward to meeting you and your family during this campaign season. ank you in advance for your support.

To all my Levy County friends and family: I am announcing my candidacy to remain your Levy County Judge, a position I have had the honor to hold over the past two years. In 1989, I began my service to the citizens of Levy County as an Assistant State Attorney in Bronson. For the past twenty three years, I have continuously served the citizens of Levy County and all the citizens of the Eighth Judicial Circuit. Ive served as Division Chief for the State Attorneys O ce of Levy County and Gilchrist County. I was promoted to Division Chief of Crimes Against Women and Families, where I supervised attorneys in a unit handling specialized prosecutions. Ultimately, I was promoted to Chief of Special Prosecutions, a specialized unit assigned only the most serious of cases in our Judicial Circuit such as Murder, Kidnapping and Sexual Battery. I have personally handled and supervised thousands of serious felony cases. I have extensive experience in serious and complex jury trials. In the 18 months prior to becoming your Judge, I participated in four 1st degree murder jury trials and a serious sexual battery jury trial. All of the trials resulted in convictions of the defendants who committed murder and sexual battery. Who I am as your Judge was forged in the courtrooms of our circuit, handling serious and complex cases. I have spent my life seeking justice for the victims of crime and closure for the families of those victims. It was my calling. As Levy County Judge, I know God has given me a broader calling to serve the people of Levy County. I am the ONLY judicial candidate in this election with judicial experience. I have been your County Judge over the past two years. I have presided over hundreds of cases including both criminal and civil cases. As the presiding Judge, I have extensive experience in all aspects of case work such as “ rst appearances, arraignments, motion work, hearings and Trial. I have been the Trial Judge on county cases ranging from D.U.I. to Battery. I am also an acting Circuit Judge throughout the Circuit. I have been the presiding Trial Judge on circuit cases ranging from Robbery to Attempted Murder with a Firearm. I am the presiding Judge in Juvenile Delinquency Court, Dependency Court matters and Shelter Hearings for children. I routinely handle domestic violence injunctions, domestic violence hearings and review both search warrants and arrest warrants for law enforcement. I am the ONLY judicial candidate in this election with judicial training, having completed Judicial College, Advanced Judicial Studies and D.U.I Adjudication Lab Conference. I have been an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida, Fredric G. Levin College of Law teaching law students the practical aspects of trial practice. I have been a Faculty Instructor of both Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys at the Prosecutor and Public Defender Conference and I have lectured at the State Attorneys O ce and for Law Enforcement on topics such as jury selection, domestic violence and sexual battery investigation. I have been married to my wife Georgia for over 26 years and we live in Morriston, Florida. My wife is an elementary school teacher for the past 25 years and has recently accepted a teaching position at Joyce Bullock Elementary in Williston. I have spent my career serving both citizens of Levy County and all the citizens of the Eighth Judicial Circuit. I am proven as your Judge. I am proven in my commitment to Levy County. I ask humbly for your support. My promise to you is that I will continue to work hard for justice to all the people of Levy County. ank you and may God Bless You.Judge Tim Browning Announces Candidacy to Remain as Levy County Judge state, national or world news. e term is also broad enough to encompass weekly papers that specialize even more narrowly and are often distributed free in street racks, stores, malls or shopping centers. Among the popular weekly forms are shoppers which publish copious retail advertising by groceries and auto dealerships and alternatives, which feature antiestablishment editorial and lifestyle content. A good example of this mix is Community Newspaper Holdings, Inc. (CNHI), which used private capital to grow via acquisitions beginning in 1997. Today, it boasts some 90 small daily newspapers and over 200 smaller weeklies in 22 states. Corporate ownership has arisen to challenge sole proprietorships and partnerships for dominance in the industry. Still, neither corporate ownership nor large size inoculates community newspapers against adversity. American Community Newspapers, Inc. reached well over 1 million households in Texas, Minnesota and Virginia when it was forced into Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2010. It emerged from reorganization in the hands of its creditors. From Mankato, MN to Plano, TX; from Vienna, VA to Harrisonville, MO to Walnut Creek, CA, community newspapers stand as testament to the continuing vitality of print journalism. Reports of the death of newspapers may be premature; they are surely exaggerated.Community Newspapers continued from page 4A

Come out for the 17th Annual Johnny Hodge Memorial High School Rodeo this Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. at the Williston Horseman's Association arena. High school contestants from all over our great state of Florida will be on hand this weekend participating in boys events such roping, steer wrestling, bareback and saddle bronc riding, and of course the exciting bull riding too! Dont forget to watch those pretty cowgirls and their ” ash horses in the barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying and roping events as well. While it's important to have the desire, drive and determination to be a contender in one's chosen event in high school rodeo, these student athletes must also maintain a high gradepoint average to be eligible for competition. Just like any other sport, many of these athletes will go on to compete on college rodeo teams ... some will even be recipients of college scholarships! Although Troy, Alabama has the closest college rodeo team, many Florida High School Rodeo alumni have received scholarships from colleges in Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee and even Texas! Florida High School Rodeo has also proved to be a stepping stone for several athletes, both men and women, who have been successful in the professional ranks and even quali“ ed for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. Two alumni that excelled to this level are Willistonians Ivan Nelson and Jared Smith. Some of Williston's local high school contestants will also be on hand participating, and are even ranked among the top 20 in the State. Watch for local celebrities Lizzy Dunn in the breakaway roping and barrel racing, Stevie Norton in the tie down and team roping, Colt Adams in the team roping, and Kaley Wilder in the barrel racing and pole bending, as they apply their skills for a shot at the belt buckle being awarded this weekend to the event winners. For more information about joining the Florida High School Rodeo Association please visit www.fhsra.homestead.com. Additionally, there will be family entertainment that will surely provide lots of laughs. Come cheer on your favorite jockey in the always hysterical donkey race and kids will join in the action in the boot scramble. e Florida High School Rodeo promises the best of all aspects of rodeo. For the audience we provide the home-town, family-oriented atmosphere and entertainment, as well as easy parking, easy access to seating, and no long lines or stadium steps. e gates open at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday night in plenty of time to enjoy great barbeque and concessions before the rodeo action begins at 7:00 p.m. sharp!

Come join us for food and fellowship. I was only slightly taller, and not much bigger around, than the 12 gauge shotgun I was lugging into the woods that opening morning. Yet, the feel of that big chunk of steel in my hands made me feel ten foot tall. Id dreamed of this day for weeks, and my big buck bagging aspirations had grown as lofty as the towering white oaks my dad was leading us to. Of course, Id be following in some mighty big footsteps, him being a local hunting legend and all. Just upwind from the three-wheeler we arrived at a place called the bottleneck. Dad motioned for me to sit by a little persimmon tree, so I leaned back against its rough bark and slid down to burrow my bony bottom into the dewy leaves at its base. When those dogs get to running,Ž dad coached, You keep your eyes peeled. at double-ought buckshot art to put one down.Ž I nodded like a rat terrier lapping up a thermos of truck stop co ee. Dad, sensing my over-excitement, wisely decided to run another gun safety lecture by me before heading o He also secured a promise that I wouldnt shoot at any more squirrels. I sco ed,  at was last year daddy. Im growed up now.Ž For the next twenty minutes my senses were alive to every detail of the forest. I could almost smell the ridicule emanating from those cocky little squirrels who mocked me from the treetops. I was One with the woods. If I could only kill a deer, surely it would secure my rite of passage to manhood. Dad would be so proud. erefore, it kind of shocked me later when I found myself suddenly snapping awake. Wiping away the puddle of slobber collecting on my lapel, I quickly looked around to make sure dad hadnt caught me nodding. ats when I noticed it. A good sized deer was standing out in front of me, not thirty paces o My heart began drumming the inside of my ribs, and that gun seemed to levitate to my shoulder. My “ nger felt about frantically for that little safety do-hicky daddy always made me use. I was just about to “ re o a shot when I suddenly remembered, Im supposed to look for horns.Ž Dog,Ž I hu ed after a quick scan, A dumb doe!Ž e deer mustve heard me, for he twitched his big ole ears and revealed that he did indeed possess a little rack of horns! Fastern that revelation could fully reach my understanding the gun was leaping in my hands. en, to my surprise, the deer was also leaping; o into the foliage! My jaw slung open. I swallowed hard to “ ght down a tear. Id missed from thirty paces. In no time, dad appeared. Cautiously he instructed me to reapply the safety and he began his questioning. How far was he? Which way did he go? Yada yada yadaƒŽ He wanted to line the whole place o like a police scene; like that was going to help! I didnt feel like harping on the past, so I sulked back to the three-wheeler and began revving the engine until he “ nally got the message. e next day we drove out to the deer camp for lunch. A group of fellows was congregated out front, admiring a nice buck hanging from the skinning rack. Everybody was slapping a young fellow on the back, congratulating him and so forth. When they saw us, the ring leader spoke up. Emory, wasnt you and your boy hunting the bottleneck yesterdy?Ž A hush came on the crowd as he continued. We found a little hat-rack six point lying dead not forty yards from where I saw your boy sleeping. We was gonna drag em in, but the meat done spoilt in this heat and all.Ž Boy,Ž dad shouted, slapping me with his orange cap, You told me you missed that buck!Ž en to save face, he went on to recount how Id “ red up the three-wheeler and disrupted his tracking plans. Everybody shook their heads somberly. ( ey take deer hunting mighty serious in Mississippi.) Needless to say, that little six-pointer wasnt the only one who ran o with his heart shot out that weekend. I just felt sick. I moped for a month. My rite of passage would have to wait for another day. In fact, Im not sure I ever did make that macho trip to manhood. If I did, Im not sure when. After all, what constitutes being a real man? How do you know when you got what it takes? When have you killed enough deer? But anywaye more Ive grow in my relationship with Jesus the more Ive started to realize, manhood is not something we attain to, its something we are called to. eres a di erence. One looks to outward deeds, the other develops the inward seeds; the ones God planted. e truth is my manhood should not be based on this worlds warped standards. God has already called me a man. erefore I am. e more I understand my identity in Him the more I am set free to realize e true measure of a man is the measure in which he allows Christ to live through him.Ž I used to wonder if I shouldve gone ahead and shot one of those dumb squirrels. Maybe I wouldve gotten a little acceptance. What I didnt know at the time was, I was already accepted! (To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
