Workshop participants reviewed for recommendations a draft resolution that would implement a controversial local purchasing policy. e proposed policy would provide an opportunity for local businesses to match the lowest bid or quote submitted by any non-local business. So far; so good. e rub for local businesses is in the de“ nition of a local business,Ž as explained by Board attorney Anne Bast Brown. According to the language in the resolution, qualifying local businesses must have least 4 employees that have each lived in Levy County for one year. A sta member of the the Levy County Journal attending the workshop stood to ask, Does Wal-Mart qualify for local preference?Ž Attorney Brown answered, Yes.Ž at a huge national chain with an address in Levy County for a year could compete on equal footing with a small locally established private business struck many in attendance as patently unfair. For the Journal, the de“ nition promises a David and Goliath competition for Levy Countys oldest, continuously publishing newspaper. Since 1923 the Levy County Journal has established its reputation as Levy Countys paper of record.Ž e o cial Levy County publication continued on page 8A

HAVENHOSPICE.ORG HOSPICE ATTIC Springtime Brings Freshwater Fishing, Boating AccessBob Wattendorf Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionMarch is prime freshwater “ shing season for many species of “ sh, because bass and bream are getting geared up to hit the shallows. During spring, sun“ sh such as bass and bluegill move close to shore to “ nd suitable spawning habitat. Shallow areas (ideally 2 to 6 feet deep) with sandy or “ rm soils and nearby vegetation tend to attract sun“ sh. Often the same areas are used year after year, because sun“ sh do best when they construct beds in sheltered areas without too much current and away from prevailing winds (often coves or the north shores of lakes). Beds for both bass and bream are constructed by males, who protect the eggs after the females come for a conjugal visit. Bass typically spawn before bluegill, preferring water temperatures of about 60 to 65 degrees, whereas optimal temperatures for bluegill spawning are around 65 to 80 degrees. Redbreast sun“ sh, redear sun“ sh and crappie may also be in the shallows during this time, and normally, precede bluegill. Full and new moons generate additional activity. Since bass and bream are especially susceptible during the spawn, an emphasis on quick and e ective catch-and-release is appropriate for “ sh that cannot be legally harvested (due to size or bag limits). Dont keep “ sh that you intend to release out of the water longer than you can hold your breath, and release them as close to the capture point as possible. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) freshwater “ sheries biologists annually compile information on some of the top “ shing sites around the state for bass and bream (see MyFWC.com/Fishing and select Freshwater,Ž Sites & ForecastsŽ). Additional lakes in your area with public boat ramp access can now be found on MyFWC.com/Boating, and many of these provide outstanding recreational angling as well. e new boat ramp “ nder is a great way to learn about new opportunities. For instance, you can type in a speci“ c address, city and ZIP code, and a map will appear showing available ramps within a given radius. e site lists nearly 1,000 public freshwater boat ramps. About a quarter of these ramps are owned and maintained by the FWC, primarily using your Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration funds (SFR). All of those ramps provide free access.With so many ramps to document and the e ects of weather and other variables to contend with, the website is an ongoing project. Consequently, the FWC cannot guarantee the completeness or accuracy of the information and suggests that you check with local resources to verify conditions prior to planning long trips. e FWC is constantly seeking user feedback to provide updates (including site photos) via email to BoatRamps@MyFWC. com. e FWC operates several boating-related grant programs, most using SFR funds. ose funds are collected for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, mostly from excise taxes on “ shing tackle, import duties on yachts, and motorboat fuel taxes. In return, the USFWS provides grant funds to the states for “ shery projects, boating access and aquatic education. e program is also known as the DingellJohnson or Wallop-Breaux Act, based on the congressional sponsors who augmented the 1937 program in 1950 and substantially enhanced it in 1984. Subsequent amendments further expanded the use of these funds: 1991, Coastal Wetlands; 1992, Clean Vessel Program; and 1998, Outreach/ Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, Boating Safety, and Boating Infrastructure Grants. e SFR was created as a user-pays, user-bene“ ts program to restore and better manage Americas declining “ shery resources and later to enhance safe recreational boating opportunities. e USFWS apportions funds based on a formula based primarily on land area and the number of paid license holders. Florida in 2010-11 received nearly $12 million of these funds to reinvest in recreational “ shing and boating, which provide, respectively, $7.5 billion and 79,000 jobs, and $16.8 billion and 203,000 jobs in economic bene“ ts to the state. e bottom line is that SFR is behind a great deal of the sport “ sh management and research activities conducted in Florida. ese funds also provide a three-to-one match for the FWCs major boating safety and access (ramps) programs. Without “ shing license fees and these matching federal dollars, the “ shing and boating opportunities here in the Fishing Capital of the World would be vastly reduced and “ sh populations depleted.FISH BUSTERS BULLETIN Florida has more than 200 freshwater boat ramps constructed by the FWC using Federal Aid in Sport Fish Restoration funds.

The Levy County Journal4AMarch 8, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 James Q. Wilson (1931-2012) Thomas SowellCreators Syndicate ere are undoubtedly many people who are alive today because of James Q. Wilson, who died last week. He was not a doctor or medical scientist, nor was he a “ reman or coast guardsman who rescued people from immediate dangers. James Q. Wilson was a scholar who studied crime. He saved lives because his penetrating analyses of crime, and the e ect of the criminal law, debunked the theories of other intellectuals, which had led judges and legislators to ease up on criminals -leading in turn to skyrocketing rates of crime, including murder. Prior to 1960, murder rates in the United States had been going down for decades. Even the absolute number of murders declined, while the population grew by millions. Despite the addition of two new states -Hawaii and Alaska -in 1960, the number of murders in the 50 states was less than it had been in the 48 states thirty years earlier. e murder rate in 1960 was just under half of what it had been in 1934. But that was not good enough for the intelligentsia, with their theories on how to solveŽ our problems.Ž First of all, they claimed, we had to stop focusing on punishment and get at the root causesŽ of crime. In other words, we had to solve the criminals problems, in order to solve the problem of crime.The Autoworkers Obama Left Behind OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate e White House fairy tale about the Happily Ever After Auto Bailout is missing a crucial, bloody page. While President Obama bragged about standing by American workersŽ at a rowdy United Auto Workers meeting Tuesday, he failed to acknowledge how the Chicago-style deal threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus. In a campaign pep rally/sermon billed as a policy speech,Ž Obama nearly broke his arm patting himself on the back for placing his betsŽ (read: our money) on the $85 billion federal auto industry rescue.  ree years later,Ž he crowed, that bet is paying o for America.Ž Big Labor brass cheered Obamas citation of GMs highest pro“ ts in its 100year historyŽ as the room “ lled with militant UAW chants of union made.Ž Union madeŽ -but who paid? Sco ng at the criticism that his bailout was a massive union payo Obama countered that all workers sacri“ ced to save the auto industry. Retirees saw a reduction in the health care bene“ ts they had earned,Ž Obama told the congregation, er, crowd. Many of you saw hours reduced,Ž he sympathized, or pay and wages scaled back.Ž Lets clear the fumes (again), shall we? e bailout pain was not distributed equally. It was redistributed politically. Bondholders standing up for their property and contractual rights got shortchanged and demonized personally by the president. Dealers and suppliers faced closures based on political connections and lobbying clout, rather than neutral e ciency evaluations. And as I “ rst reported in September 2010, in the rush to nationalize the auto industry and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members costly pension funds by shafting their nonunion counterparts. ese forgotten nonunion pensioners (who worked for the Delphi/GM auto parts company) lost all of their health and life insurance bene“ ts. Hailing from the economically devastated Rust Belt -northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states -the Delphi workers had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees. Some have watched up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish. eyve banded together to seek justice in court and on Capitol Hill under the banner of the Delphi Salaried Retiree Association. rough two costly years of litigation and investigation, the Delphi workers have exposed how the stacked White House Auto Task Force schemed with union bosses to cherry pickŽ (one Obama o cials own words) which “ nancial obligations the new Government Motors company would assume and which they would abandon based on their political expedience. Obamas own former auto czar Steve Rattner admitted in his recent memoir that attacking the unions sacred cowŽ could jeopardizeŽ the auto bailout deal. Ohio Republican Rep. Michael Turner last month called attention to the glaring con” icts of interest that entangled Obama moneyman Tim Geithners multiple meddling roles in screwing over the Delphi workers.

In fact, it went back at least as far as the 18th century. But what was new in the 1960s was the widespread acceptance of such notions in the legal system, including the Supreme Court of the United States. e crusade against punishment, and especially capital punishment, spread through all three branches of the federal government and into state governments as well. Even a murderer caught in the act had so many new rights,Ž created out of thin air by judges, that executing him could require a decade or more of additional litigation, even after he was found guilty. e best-known product of this 1960s revolution in the criminal law was the famous Miranda warning, You have the right to remain silent,Ž etc. It is as if we are engaged in some kind of sporting contest with the criminal, and must give him a chance to beat the rap, even when he is guilty. In the aftermath of this revolution in the criminal law, promoted by the intelligentsia in academia and in the media, the long downward trend in murder suddenly reversed. By 1974, the murder rate was more than twice what it had been in 1961. Between 1960 and 1976, a citizens chances of becoming a victim of a major violent crime tripled. So did the murder of policemen. People clever with words sought all sorts of ways of denying the obvious fact that the fancy new developments in the criminal law were catastrophically counterproductive. at was when James Q. Wilsons writings on crime burst upon the scene, cutting through all the fancy evasions with hard facts and hard logic. e idea that crime results from poverty, or can be reduced by alleviating poverty, Professor Wilson shot down by pointing out that crime rose the fastest in this country at a time when the number of persons living in poverty or squalor was declining.Ž He said, I have yet to see a root cause or to encounter a government program that has successfully attacked it.Ž Nor did Wilson buy the argument that unemployment drove people to crime or welfare. He noted that the work force was at an all-time high at the same time as were the welfare rolls.Ž Nor were minorities frozen out of this economy. By 1969, the nonwhite unemployment rate had fallen to 6.5 percent,Ž he pointed out. By systematically confronting the prevailing notions and rhetoric with undeniable facts to the contrary, James Q. Wilson began to wear away the prevailing social dogmas of intellectuals behind the counterproductive changes in law and society. It was much like water wearing away rock -slowly but continually. e common sense that had once produced and sustained declining crime rates began to reappear, here and there, in the criminal justice system and sometimes prevailed. Murder rates began to decline again. James Q. Wilson was the leader in this “ ght. He said, We have tri” ed with the wicked.Ž ere is no way to know which ones of us are alive today because of his work. But we all owe him a debt of gratitude. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www. tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM Whoa! Whoa!... Hold on Lawmakers in Tallahassee HB 119/Boyd bill for PIP reform is scheduled to go to the house ” oor for voting to approve or disapprove. is bill has got to this point over strong objections by the doctors, attorneys and consumer groups in an attempt to limit fraud in the automobile insurance industry. is is a great idea, but this is not the best way. We all want the fraudulent claims to stop so our insurance cost can be reduced, but this legislation limits our access to the appropriate care giver. is bill requires accident victims to go to the emergency room within 72 hours of the accident to access their $10,000 PIP bene“ ts. e ER at all our local hospitals are the most expensive place to receive medical treatment. Anyone who has been to the ER understands the cost is astounding and usually requires follow up care with an appropriate specialist. Many times the patients bene“ ts are exhausted by only one trip to the emergency room. is puts undue “ nancial strain on the patient to provide needed treatment for injuries that are not life-threatening. Certainly on life-threatening injuries the ER is the best place to go, but for normal strain/sprain type injuries the care is overpriced and usually ine ective for injuries that are not urgent. Also, after 37 years of patient care, I have seen thousands of patients su er, whose injuries did not manifest themselves or subsequent symptoms that are not initially present for weeks after trauma. is legislation also restricts the freedom of choice for the citizens of Florida. Under this proposed bill the patient is completely denied access to chiropractic care. Studies by government research, insurance companies, and independent medical researchers all show that chiropractic is the most cost-e ective, has the best outcome and the highest patient satisfaction for musculoskeletal injuries. To require patients to go to the emergency room instead of the most cost-e ective care giver makes no “ nancial sense and will not reduce the “ nancial burden on our insurance companies and citizens. Lets stop fraud by rooting out those that commit these false claims which are responsible for the escalating insurance cost. e insurance carriers have a pro“ le on these repeat o enders. It is time to prosecute these unlawful providers without punishing the unfortunate individuals that are injured by accidents and retain our freedom of choice. Keith Richeson, D.C.

Andi had arrived by six, her college-aged campaign aide, Martin Sault, at the wheel of her big SUV blazing with magnetic campaign signage. Martin parked the Bronco conspicuously by the main gate. Andi popped out in her long, tailored skirt and expensive western boots. Soon she was balancing a plate of smoky ribs while working the assembling crowd. Oh, this is like old home week,Ž she gushed several times, hugging up on folk shed known from youth or recollected from her “ rst campaign. Martin was good at scouting for her and sometimes approached to whisper names and point out other key contacts hed detected deeper in the multitude that was gathering in the stadium bleachers for the speakingŽ at seven. Out on the “ eld, a speakers platform with a potted palm and standing microphone had been erected on the 50 yard line. After a lengthy bout of the usual recitations by candidates for the various county boards and o ces, Andis opponent, Marvin Haggard, was called to the platform. A former sheri from neighboring Gilchrist County, he bore a freshly clipped ” attop haircut and dressed in black and white. His short sleeved shirt was white, his trousers black, as were his standard-issue tie and service oxfords. He spoke in a halting, yet strong and con“ dent manner. ere was authority in his voice, as if issuing a formal indictment of the incumbent for abandoning her local constituents. en Andi rose to give her best stump speech as a state legislator. Shed honed her FFA state championship speaking skills well in the intervening years. Shed given a rousing, foot-stomping, crowd pleaser of a speech. Fiery and resolute, yet with good humor, she swiftly debunked her opponents claims that she had become more beholding to Floridas big countiesŽ than she was to the less populated ones that formed the sprawling house district. Andis speech was the last of the night, so she had that going for her, too, in the resounding cheers and applause she received. By ten oclock, the parking area outside the old ball “ eld was empty except for a few candidates in a cluster commiserating about every aspect of elective politics. en, as it inevitably happens, one inexplicably reversed “ eld to announce that really, he loved every minute of his campaign. Now the others must o er the same, or else the word get out that they didnt really care for the hand-to-hand rigors of pressing the ” esh, stepping out among the people and asking folk for their vote. at over there, thats politickers politicking the politickers, is what I call it,Ž Edgar Lamm observed from beside his best pickup. Andi thanked her staunch supporters, Edgar, Helen and their daughter Ruthie again. I dont know what Id do without you all.Ž Well, were glad to do it, Andi,Ž Helen said, shifting a folding chair to her other arm. But you better give Edgar a big hug or he wont have nothin to brag about all next week.Ž  ats right!Ž Edgar, a giant grizzly with teddy bear eyes, confessed as Andi positioned her shoulder softly and leaned in for their embrace. Martin pulled up in the Bronco. Andi got in and let the window down. See yall,Ž she called to the Lamms with a big wave beneath the pale dome light. e three Lamms hoisted their thick arms to wave back. Andi instructed Martin to pull over to the remaining bunch of politicos.All right now, boys!Ž Andi called playfully as Martin came to a stop. If you fellows are telling a good one, or passing round a half-pint, I want to know about it!ŽNaw, we dont do nothing like that, Andi,Ž a candidate for the County Commission kidded back.Yeah, me neither, boysŽ Andi assured with a wink. I been livin a little closer to the foot of the cross these days, myself.Ž e men laughed heartily and raised their hands to wave goodbye as Martin pulled away on cue.Andi checked her gold wrist watch. It would take nearly thirty minutes to make the drive to Nolan Letts camp house. She was thinking that would be just about the last place on Earth shed want to be in thirty minutes, or any other time for that matter. But her father, former state senator, Mercer Pendarvis (no novice to politics himself), had insisted on it. He had assured Lett that shed accept his tepid, after-rally invitation. So Andi was expected. Not to show up would have certainly been seen as more than a slight. It would have been an insult. After all, Mercer saying hed already swallowed miseryŽ had made a dreaded sojourn to meet with Lett himself. Andi knew that was no small undertaking on her fathers part. Never mind that the two had been competitive from opposite ends of the county since youth. Lett had also served as state senator for that district. e two had wrestled the o ce back and forth for over twenty years through the late 1940s and well into the 60s. It had been the genteel land and sawmill owner, Pendarvis, battling it out over the decades with Lett, the stubborn peanut and hog farmer with a small meat processing plant south of Chie” and. Now Nolan Lett professed to be a semi-retired cat“ sh entrepreneur who had astonishingly taken up the game of golf. Mercer Pendarvis, having sold his sawmill in the 90s to a large New England conglomerate, had reduced his own status to something resembling a country squire, a gentleman farmer now who occasionally sold timber o his domain, north of Raleigh. ey were old political warriors now, merely adversaries by habit with no real enthusiasm for combat by ballot remaining. Yet politics permeated their very “ ber, so an alliance as an alternative to battle was now possible to make. Andi lay back against the head rest and began to shape her strategy. is was not one she would discuss with Martin. He was always comfortable with the quiet between them anyway. Martin listened to the radio playing softly. Leaving Bronson, Andi had Martin stop at Tonys Texaco to “ ll up with gas. He bought a bottle of water for Andi and a Coke for himself with the money shed given him. Andi wanted something stronger, but let the cold water ” ush the urge back within her again, praying silently for strength, even as she gazed on the neon lighted beer sign in the store window. e amber-lit town fell away to darkness up Highway 27 as a 60s station theyd compromised on weeks before played familiar tunes. Martin turned west at Turkey Town, making a shortcut through the countryside to US 19. e night was pierced with pricks and splashes of electric intrusions. It never ceased to amaze Andi how many new home sites had popped up across her district. Shed seen the census “ gures, but driving at night literally brought light to the numbers. Roads shed traveled earlier, while an occasion barn light kept vigil, were now scattered with porch and security lights swarming against the darker silhouette of pines. O 19 South, the Bronco rumbled over a cattle gap and traced the sandy ruts of the drive back to Nolen Letts house. A dog was barking ahead. A bluish light ” ickered sporadically in the modest home. e television and a light on at the barn were all that lit the place. e dog barked more menacingly as they passed, but Andi never saw him. Martin knew how to negotiate the deeper ruts and where to veer up into trees on the sandy blu out to the vast wet prairie where Letts cat“ sh ponds lay.  eyll be back at the ponds, up at his cook shed,Ž he said.  eyre likely to have had a few by now. Sometimes the talk gets a little rough, Andi. You dont have to stay long, I dont think.Ž Dont worry,Ž Andi assured him. She “ nished the water and told him to stop where the woods were thickest ahead. She got out and went behind a big live oak with a wad of Kleenex in the leg of her boot. A trick of the trade.Ž Even with the windows up and the air on and the radio playing softy still, the boisterous symphonic of frogs announced the near proximity of the scattering of dark ponds. ey had not seen the water yet. en the road opened to the prairie and the ponds swollen with moonlight appeared. Martin pointed to a ” eck of light in a dark grove of trees on a point jutting into the vast, ancient lake bed.  eres the cook shed,Ž Martin said. Out on that point, where that far pond and the little lake join up.ŽAndi reached deep within herself to “ nd her congeniality switch.Ž Her Pendarvis smile. Her game face. ere were three pickup trucks and a large black Lincoln. It was an older model, but well cared for. e men, the four of them, were sitting at a big picnic table on the cement slab beneath the tin roof of the shelter. ere was an army blanket on the table and Andi recognized grisly, gray, burr-headed Nolan Lett as the dealer.

Irrigation should not occur between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. However, given the regions ongoing drought and water supply issues, homeowners and businesses are urged to water no more than one day per week or better yet, not at all. A rainfall de“ cit of 12.7 inches, declining river and lake levels, and record low groundwater levels have prompted the District to call for increased conservation on the part of all residents. e limits on landscape irrigation are part of an ongoing e ort to help address water needs within the District. e rules apply to residential landscaping, public or commercial recreation areas, and public and commercial businesses that arent regulated by a District-issued permit. e rule permits irrigation just one day per week during Standard Time (fall and winter months). e rule applies to residents within the Districts boundaries, which means all of Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor and Union counties, and portions of Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Je erson, Levy and Putnam counties.

In the Big Tree Park in Longwood, Florida stood the 138-foot bald cypress named  e SenatorŽ until 26-yearold Sara Barnes decided to burn it to get some light to do her dope. e 18-footwide Senator was one of the worlds oldest and tallest trees much beloved by visitors and admirers around the state and world. Barnes was turned in by tips to a crime hotline after she took photos of the “ re and uploaded them to her laptop and Facebook for all to see. Barnes started the “ re inside the mighty tree in order to see betterŽ at the spot she often visited to use illegal drugs. On January 16 the irresponsible and sel“ sh act of one person took 3500 years of growth and majesty from everyone elses view and enjoyment. Barnes was charged with malicious burning of land, a third-degree felony, but a search warrant also revealed drugs in her home. Barnes was additionally charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell and possession of drug paraphernalia. The Senator Tree Arsonist Now Reading the Wrath of Facebook Remarks The Senator Tree sign Big Tree Park in Longwood, Fla. Sara Barnes e biblical adage of you reap what you sow is now bearing fruit on Barnes Facebook page with the many angry e “ ve candidates running for the three Inglis commission seats were invited to a Meet the CandidatesŽ forum on Sat. Mar. 3 in the Commissioners Room at the Inglis Town Hall. is forum was sponsored by the Inglis Recreation Advisory Board Activity Committee (RABAC). e intent of the forum was to educate the voters about the candidates. e two-hour forum “ elded questions from the 50-60 member audience on such subjects as economic development (potential businesses and their impact), zoning, infrastructure (existing and future), jobs, sta (to include the Inglis Police Department), the budget, taxes, goals for the town, public safety, the environment, recycling, public works and negative campaigning. Incumbent candidates Sherry Ely, Richard Kellman and Drinda Merritt were present. Candidate Michael Andrew White had a previous job commitment in another state, while candidate Glenda Kirkland declined the invitation. e absent candidates failed to provide a written opening or closing statement regarding their positions on any issues. Audience members expressed confusion and disappointment in this absence as they wanted clari“ cation on speci“ c issues these candidates had raised. e incumbents each gave a two-minute opening and closing statement and answered over 35 questions from the audience. Ely, Kellman and Merritt all touched on their accomplishments during their tenures and reiterated how pleased they were at the turnout of concerned citizens. RABAC would like to thank all of those that made this forum a success, starting with the people that gave up part of their Saturday to provide questions for the candidates. anks to the Pages who handed out and picked up question cards: John Curtis, Kaloin Nedeltchev and Heather Carson; the Screeners that screened the questions for appropriateness: Jenny McCarthy, Rick Rubrigi and Christina Anderson; and the Timekeepers, Susan Edwards and Lynn Tate. A special thanks to River Coast Realty for the bell!! — submitted by Ruth RuppertThe Senator bald cypress tree FL State News Bureau June 26, 1961remarks posted where she originally boasted of her feat. Burning remarks are the harvest of her actions. Local Business Person continued from page 1A Meet the Candidates Forum in Inglisof legal notices and items of record have been regularly found for decades in the Journal. As it turns out, the proposed resolution arises but a few months after the National media giant, Landmark Media Enterprises brought into question the Journals status as Levy Countys paper of record.Ž Landmark Media Enterprises is the previous owner of e Weather Channel, sold recently for $3.5 billion. Landmark owns TV stations, publishes magazines and newspapers. It is the current owner of e Chie” and Citizen, e Williston Pioneer, and Cedar Key Beacon. e Landmark group has been pressing for legal notices to be published in all their local a liates, rather than the Levy County Journal. Its just business, but Journal sta ers question whether its fair business and business in the best interest of the people of Levy County. An example cited by the Journal reports that contractors interested in bidding on county jobs have regularly checked the Journals legal section for Notices to Bid. Publishing these notices elsewhere could require contractors to needlessly seek and “ nd the particular newspaper or papers publishing the notices on any given week. More importantly, this critical issue now appears to have extended to mom and pop operations and other small businesses across Levy County. e next BoCC meeting is March 20th at 9 a.m. in the BoCC Meeting Room at 355 S. Court Street in Bronson. Due to this being late breaking news and with space constraints in the printed newspaper, we are scanning the entire Resolution Draft 2012-17 onto our website for you to read by Friday morning, Mar. 9 and it will be printed in the Levy County Journal in the next edition on Mar. 15 for you to read for yourself. e Suwannee River Water Management District (District) invites the public to a meeting on Tues. Mar. 20 to o er input on a site plan for recreational opportunities on a 642-acre parcel in Cedar Key. e District purchased the property, known as the Lukens Tract, to protect the marsh estuary system in the Cedar Key area of the Gulf of Mexico. e District is taking comments on the site plan to open the property to the public for access. Current plans call for a canoe/ kayak launch on the site, as well as support facilities to accompany the launch. e meeting will be held at 1:30 p.m. at the Cedar Key Library, 460 2nd Street, Cedar Key.

www.levyjournalonline.com L e v y L Levy L i f e ifeLEVY COUNTY JOURNAL VOL. 88, NO. 36 50 CENTS THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2012 Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Found Photo Identi ed Call or write to us at PO Box 2990, Chie and, FL 32644-2990 or email editor@levyjournal.com.Found PhotoIn the Fall of 2003, a Levy County Journal sta er discovered a white box full of photographs that may or may not have run in earlier editions of the newspaper. e box was unmarked, and the photographs remain unidenti“ ed and unclaimed. Hence the name of our feature: Found Photo. We ask our readers to take a look and see if they can identify the folks in the photo, as well as the story behind it. It was an honorary day, Feb. 8, 2012. In celebration of Black History month the Levy County courthouse in Bronson was “ lled with people and pictures and history honoring black community leaders who contributed greatly to the culture and heritage of Levy County. One of those people being honored was Mr. J. L. Dunmore, born on July 22, 1928, who was the “ rst black man on the Chie” and Fire Department. But on this day in Bronson there was another surprise honor in store for Mr. J. L. Dunmore. And in order to keep it a surprise Tommy Rogers and Steve Gilly of the Andrews Nursery Division of Forestry were hiding out in the mens room. Yes, that is correct. ey did not want Mr. J. L. to see them and know that there was something cooking to further honor Mr. Dunmore for his contribution to the nursery and Levy County. But, Mr. J. L. does not miss much and caught a glimpse of the people he used to work with and made note of it to local artist and author Carolyn Cohen, who had hoodwinked him into coming to the event unaware of the honors being awarded, yelling out, Hey, there goes my old boss.Ž When the time “ nally came for all to know Steve Gilly and Tommy Rogers handed Mr. J. L. Dunmore a plaque in commemoration of all the years he worked at Andrews Nursery Division of Forestry. According to Gilly, Mr. J.L. built up the nursery from day one when with the help of M. D. Andrews it was moved from Olustee to Chie” and in the mid 50s. He knows where all the irrigation pipes are because he put them there. Mr. J. L. traveled the state getting seeds and seedlings back when that was a di cult job for a man of color and he did it with calm and class sometimes having to call the home o ce to have them tell the customer to go ahead with the transfer. He planted the “ rst seeds in 1955, saw the “ rst spring crop in 56, and helped dig up the “ rst crop sold in 57. He knew his way around the tractor and was very versatile. He even supervised the inmate crews from Lancaster. Gilly said, He knew what he was doing.Ž Mr. J. L. Dunmore retired in 1990 as a full-time employee. In a couple of years after that, he was called back in as a part-time employee. You cant keep a good man down, as the Honors Given to Mr. J. L. Dunmoresaying goes, and everyone agrees that Mr. J. L. Dunmore is a good man. In this day and age when role models are often hidden under the glare of glitz, money, fame and shallow even vulgar behaviors, a man like Mr. J. L. Dunmore shines bright as someone to model for integrity and character and perseverance. And even more than that, his legacy will long be held in the hearts of all who knew him and worked with him. Levy County thanks you Mr. Dunmore for your valued contribution to the history of Levy County.Enjoying the excitement of giving an honorary plaque to Mr. J. L. Dunmore are Andrews Nursery Forestry Division previous co-workers from the left: Mr. Steve Gilly, Mr. J. L. Dunmore and Mr. Tommy Rogers.On the Levy Life page of March 1 we displayed a picture of a handsome couple that was identi“ ed by their daughter, Trish Viker, to be Kenneth and Florence Clausey or better known as Grandpa and Grandma Clausey. e event was their 50th wedding anniversary. e Clauseys have since passed on but they left a legacy of always being there for the kids in the Bronson area where they lived. eir grandsons are David Viker who is now a wildlife biologist and Erik Viker who is now a university professor, both graduated from Bronson High School. What a blessing to have devoted grandparents. anks Trish for sharing your family.Concealed Weapons Permit Youth Fundraiser Held at LCSO Mar. 10 e Bronson High School Youth Crime Watch and Williston High School JROTC are sponsoring a Concealed Weapons Permit Class on Sat.

Recorded MarriagesFor a brief stint in Junior High they put me in charge of the schools concession stand. Looking back, it begs one question: WHAT WHERE THEY THINKING?!!!Ž Folding money was mighty scarce in my single parent home those days. We didnt generally splurge on a lot of the luxuries, like food or clothing. So while I was disappointed the concession gig didnt pay in cash, I wasnt completely disgruntled. Just working around so much popcorn and candy had it rewards, if you know what I mean. In fact, I was like a fox in the henhouse! My belly had never stayed so full, or my dentist so busy. My social life was really picking up too. I was the most popular guy in school while behind that counter. Looking back, you wouldve thought the faculty would have supplied me with a little supervision, it being my “ rst experience in retail sales and all. But they didnt. I was left to learn the ropes on my own. Certain concepts like Inventory Reduction came to me right o en, of course, the day they actually took account of their inventory, they had to let me go.Clearly I hadnt developed the character to hold such a lofty position. I was just a dumb kid. Im not sure what my P.E. coachs excuse was though. at big galoot used to rap on the back door before I was o cially open for business everyday. She eld let me have some M&Ms!Ž or She eld let me have some popcorn.Ž Id hand him a bag and stick out my hand for payment. Hed slap it and walk o laughing,  anks She eld.Ž One day my un-righteous indignation “ nally got the best of me. I decided to stand up to the big bully. (Of course thats easier said than done when hes 6 5Ž 250lbs, and you look like a broomstick in a pair of parachute pants.) Yet, this day, when the coach poked his big bu alo head in the back door hunting a freebie, I made my stand. Well kind of... I turned my back and mumble feebly, Look coach. You gotta pay for this stu You gon get me in trouble.Ž Coach got a queer far away look in his eyes. I gulped as he stepped in to the room and quietly closed the door behind him. She eld,Ž he growled picking me up by the collar, Ill take what I want. You aint gonna say nuttin, you here?Ž He was right. I couldnt say nuttin, especially with his bad breath all over me, practically melting my bugging eyeballs. I just gulped. Besides,Ž he continued, letting me down and politely straightening my collar, Im sure you dont want me to tell how I seen you slipping free goodies to all your buddies?Ž I gulped again. My whole life ” ashed before my eyes. I knew my principal would love to mark this down on that so called Permanent Record he spent most of his time compiling on me. Coach stu ed his gym shorts full of blow-pops and walked out. As I watched him walking o I realized why he got paid to be a teacherbecause he sure taught me a lesson! I learned if you get involved in shady dealings youll inevitably run into some shady characters, and theyll always be some bigger, smarter, and smellier than you. But anywaySharing breathing space with smelly demons in shadowy places is no way to live. If thats what youve been doing, I want to encourage you to come out into the light; the Light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ! Jesus wants to give you a new heart, new coaches, and rest for your sin wearied soul. Of course, theres your permanent record to think about too. (For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23 KJV) Bottom line, stealing doesnt get you anything for free. erell always be hell to pay. e only thing truly free in life is love, and Jesus is much sweeter than a belly full of stolen blow pops. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy She eld at his website www.butanyway. org, or email him at sfm4christ@gmail.com.

The purpose of this rulemaking is to amend the District’s Water Shortage Plan to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens and achieve other streamlining benefits for the regulated public. Each water man agement district is required, by state law, to have and implement a Water Short age Plan which guides its responses to drought and other water shortage events. Revisions address the hydrologic indicators used to assess whether to de clare or change a water shortage order, how and when notice is provided regarding a water shortage order, the water use restric tions to be implemented during particular phases of a water shortage, and other matters as appropriate to make the water shortage plan more effective. Amendments incorporate plain language throughout by removing or defining technical jargon; modify drought indicators; clarify local government roles by removing or rewriting confusing provisions; enhance reporting and enforcement; streamline and update restrictions by removing antiquated provisions and addressing changes to state law; and continue once-perweek watering schedule for all months in Phase III (previously started in Phase IV). The proposed amendments include reduction in utility reporting requirements, including an exemption for small utilities; reduction in utility messaging requirements, including an exemption for small utilities; and further clarification of the District’s expectations regarding local restriction enforcement. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking appeared in the Florida Administrative Weekly, Vol. 38, No. 10 on March 9, 2012. A copy of the proposed rule can be viewed on the District’s website at http://www.swfwmd.state. fl.us/rules/proposed/ Pursuant to the provisions of the Americans with Dis abilities Act, any person requiring special accommodations to provide com ments on this rulemaking is asked to contact The Southwest Florida Water Management District Hu man Resources Director, 2379 Broad Street, Brooks ville, Florida 34604-6899; telephone (352) 796-7211, ext. 4702 or 1-800-423-1476 (FL only), ext. 4702; TDD (FL only) 1-800-231-6103; or email to ADACoor dinator@swfwmd. state.fl.us.
