Once again, there is no di erence given in the de nition between giving local preference to a multi-million or -billion dollar local business and a small local business. As reported last week, a Journal sta er attending the last meeting asked for clari cation on this with the question, Does Wal-Mart qualify for local preference? to which County Attorney Brown replied, Yes. e Resolution also de nes the terms for which the county may apply local preference and the terms for the actual bidding process.

Evan Sullivan, LCSOTwo Robberies Same Robbers Arrested by LCSO Levy County Sheri s Drug Task Force set up a drug reverse deal as part of an undercover drug operation in the Chie and area on March 7. Case Agent Burt Miller set the deal up with Tracy James Smith, 38, of Alachua and Kelly Michelle Colson, 27, of Fanning Springs. Prior to the drug deal Smith had contacted agents by telephone to set the particulars of the drug deal with the location and price of the pills. Any person utilizing telecommunication equipment to set up a drug deal commits a third degree felony. According to Maj. Evan Sullivan with the Levy County Sheri s O ce, the Sheri s O ce has zero tolerance of this type of behavior. Smith and Colson arrived at the predetermined location and met with the source on the side of the business and purchased oxycodone pills.

Williston Police Department got a call on Mar. 8 from a victim of theft. Deputy Scott Stancil responded by visiting the victim at NE 40 Street in Williston. e victim relayed that someone had stolen a 1995 white Dodge Dakota truck from the property. As Deputy Stancil investigated the scene he noticed foot tracks in the victims yard and followed the tracks to 17650 NE 40 Street where Stancil found 47-year-old Brian Sutherland. Sutherland denied being involved with the theft of the truck and stated that he had not been at the victims residence in several days. Deputy Stancil and Sgt Mike Narayan continued the investigation and received a tip that Sutherland was seen at a local business in the stolen truck. Stancil responded to the business and watched a video surveillance depicting Sutherland driving and parking the stolen truck in the parking lot. As the deputies returned back to Sutherlands residence they noticed Sutherland walking down the dirt road. When questioned Sutherland said he was scared and had parked the stolen truck in the woods. Sutherland admitted to stealing the truck and driving it to a local store to buy alcohol. Sutherland was arrested for Grand eft Auto and was transported to the Levy County Jail.Williston Man Steals Truck to Get Alcohol Well-Conditioned Agents Prove You Cant Run from the LawAgents Burt Miller and Jay Bolton with the Drug Task Force attempted to stop a white two-door Buick for a tra c violation on Tuesday, March 6. e driver, Marshal Myrick Jr., 22, of Ocala refused to stop and even accelerated to 55 mph in a 35 mpg zone.

Now her big Bronco festooned with magnetic campaign signage blazed through the night. Martin Sault, her college-aged campaign aide, was at the wheel. eir destination, a rustic cook shed erected on a jut of high ground among the scattering of cat sh ponds on a vast, wet prairie south of Chie and. It was the property of Nolan Lett, a life-long adversary of Andis father, Mercer Pendarvis. With all their political might, the two men had wrestled for that State Senate seat for over three decades. Finally, the ravages of time and reapportionment had whipped them both. So they were old political warriors, now retired from the eld of combat by ballot. Although politics permeated their very ber, an alliance as an alternative to con ict was now possible. e more genteel Mercer Pendarvis made the rst gesture to the inty, obstinate Lett. An unholy alliance at best, it was one that Pendarvis would willingly make to further his daughters campaign. It was agreed that Andi would be received by Nolan Lett and some of our bunch out at the Lett place after the rally that night. Even with the windows up and the air on and the radio playing softly, the boisterous symphony of frogs announced the close proximity of the scattering of dark ponds. ey had not seen the water yet. en the road open to the prairie and the ponds swollen with moonlight appeared. Martin pointed to a eck of light in a dark grove of oaks leaning upon the ancient lake bed. eres the cook shed, he said. Out on that point where that far pond and the little lake join up. Andi saw the icker of a distant re. She reached deep within herself to nd her congeniality switch. 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. Howard Jarvis, portly in a khaki jacket across the table, folded his hand of cards and stood up from the table. He walked out with a gouty limp to greet Andi and Martin at the Bronco. Jarvis nodded to Martin and winked a welcoming smile at Andi. How are ya, honey? he asked softly. Fine, Mr. Howard, Just ne, if I have your support. Youve got it, honey. Lorettas, too. ats who you really need, my Loretta. Now shell talk for ya. Youve gotta have them thatll get out and talk for ya! I sure do, Mr. Howard. You tell Miss Loretta that Im comin to see her, ok? Ill do it, Andi, Jarvis said warmly, touching her arm. Now listen, I left a place for you at the table there. Left a little stake money to get you in the game. You just play along, honey. You know ol Nolan has his ways. Jarvis eased into his bulky Lincoln and looked older than shed remembered him. ey all did. ese were men who stood rugged and robust in the pantheon of Andis childhood memories. All except Stemple. Hed moved down from Louisiana later. But the rest were men her father had known well in business or sport. Hed bought from them or sold to them before the lumber mill was sold. Aligned in politics or not, theyd all known each other and hunted in the same woods. Howard Jarvis was retired from his hardware store now. Hardin Odett or Uncle Hard as he was widely known, had passed his logging business to his sons. Billy Stemple still owned a dragline, dump trucks and earth moving equipment. Hed made a fortune in earlier years digging canals along Alligator Alley across the Everglades. Nolan Lett had his cat sh, and astonishingly for anyone who knew him, his new-found passion for golf. Letts elds lay fallow and his peanut wagons and barns stood out in the fennels behind his modest home. Andi and Martin walked up to the shed. e golf clubs standing behind the cab of a battered Eldorado pickup were Letts. Uncle Hard, a bantam rooster of a man, joshed Lett as they approached the shed. Only two things Nolan Lettll lie about! Winning at poker, and losing money in the cat sh business. Truth is, he rarely wins in poker, and is making a B-I-G bundle in the cat sh business. Now that theres the gospel. ats the way I hear it, Andi announced with swagger, putting on a brave front. Why they tell me at the Water Management District that, if you had your way, Senator, youd have Mr. Stemple here digging catch sh ponds from here to kingdom come. Sounds good to me, Nolan Lett croaked, leaning back in his camp chair at the end of the table. e other men stood when Andi was at Stemples shoulder. Nolan just grinned up at her with a surprising school-boy smile on his leathery face. Oh, sit down fellas, Andi chided. You know my campaign aide, Martin Sault, here dont you all? Martins going to be a lawyer, but dont hold that against him. His folks have that big dairy out Hunters Trail. Yeah, mighty ne, Uncle Hard screeched. Pull up to the table here Andi. Martin, get that chair over there by the cook pit. Have a look at them hams wrapped up there. en to Andi, Gal, whatll you have to drink? Weve got Lord Calvert sittin on the tailgate. He cant come to the table though. New rule. Aint that right Billy? Stemple massaged his thick mustache. Whatd you say was wild Nolan? Stemple asked playfully. Deuces? No! No wild ducks in my game. Nothing else, neither. Its same as always on my deal, Lett sco ed as he dealt Andy in. What you see is what you get. Read em and weep. He nished the deal. I never seen a worse hand of cards in my whole life, Uncle Hard moaned. Lett bit the tip o his cigar and spat it back over his shoulder. Your play, Billy. Andi watched with mild amusement as the men alternatively groused or bragged over the cards dealt. ey each had ve. It was draw poker. Five dollar limit when she rst sat. Game after game, each man in turn won the pot, not more than forty dollars in a single one. Just a little fun and games, as Uncle Hard put it. Andis little grubstake from Howard Jarvis was dwindling. Nolan was dealing again and he said to Andi, Well I might think youd be up at Steinhatchee to that festival tonight. Place for politicians, aint it? Oh, Im smarter than that, Nolan. I was down there this afternoon, all around the booths with the local folk. I even shucked a few oysters myself. Tonight, theres not four out of ten from the district. Out of that four, only two will be registered to vote. And this time of night, at least one of those two will have partied too hard to remember I was there, and the other, he wont care if I was or there or not. Sounds like you staying after it, Uncle Hard said. ats what you got to do. If you want to win here, you sure got to go after it like yous killin snakes. ats right, Stemple agreed. Folks like to see their politicians working during a campaign, cause they aint got no idea they work any other time. I reckon Im contrary, Nolan Lett announced haughtily. Because I dont want none of the politicians to do nothin. It would suit me just ne right now if none ever do another thing, never again. Why Im a past master of the Florida Do Nothing Party. I served 12 years in the Florida legislature. Nobody ever introduced fewer bills than me. Sure, Uncle Hard chided. You want the State to do nothin, cept allow you to dig more cat sh ponds! ats my point, Lett lectured. I want to do on my property what I want to do, not what the state wants. ats how it was until all this hippie hooey got into the state agencies. Andi won the hand being played and Uncle Hard passed the deal to Stemple. Lett continued as Stemple shu ed and dealt. Now you got these guys standing around in earth shoes and love beads telling third-generation landowners like me what we can or cant do with our own dad-blame property. About half of whats going on today is because these hippie yahoos go more by Red Indian religion than they do our own. Why, they come in these public meetings, sit right up yonder and quote Sitting Bull like he was pure Moses or somebody! You getting red up aint cha, Nolan? Billy Stemple grinned. Your bet. Nolans got bout mad as Old Dan Tucker, Uncle Hard cracked. e night wore on. With the rare exception, Andi began to win hand after hand. Sounds like youre cat sh farming might be in the way of those wanting to farm government, she dealt to Nolan Lett. Yeah, Lett agreed suspiciously, running his sinewy hand back over his buzz cut. And theyre a sight better farmers than me, I reckon, cause their farm is bout to put my farm out of business. I have a kudzu theory, Andi o ered. You know we imported that kudzu because it made good ground cover. We gured it would help control erosion on our farms and highways. Well, the next thing we knew, it was climbing light poles, covering trees and barns and taking over the place. So what started out as a good purpose, got out of hand. ats how I see this situation. Property rights are issues, but neighborliness is our real challenge. What we got to gure out is how to be good neighbors without either eroding our personal freedoms or allowing government to choke us out like forty acres of kudzu. All were silent for a moment. en they were laughing. Nolan rst, and then the rest. By doggies, I aint sure what you just said, Nolan Lett whined. But danged if it didnt sound real good! If you aint Mercer Pendarvis up one side and down the other, Uncle Hard cackled, Ill eat my cap. You got my vote, Stemple said. Lets play some cards. My deal. He changed the game back to seven card stud. In the last round, he dealt himself a pair and folded. Only Andi had a payable hand. Lett, in an apparent blu built the pot. Uncle Hard played along. Andi turned over a pair of sixes, three eights. at won her third large pot in a row. Well fellows, I feel kind of bad about this, Andi announced, raking the cash to her mounting heap. Never had a better night. Like to give you all time to win it back, but ... Last hand, then! Lett interrupted brusquely. No limits. A fat head (referencing Ben Franklins over-sized image on the new hundred dollar bill) plays. Whoa, thats steep stakes, Senator, a bemused Andi Pendarvis replied, sorting the mound of bills before her. Well it aint like its your money, gal. Uncle Hard countered. Most of what you got there came from me! at wasnt exactly so, though Hardin Odett knew it. Lett and Stemple were Tired Title Tunnel Walks Waves Werent Wreck
The Levy County Journal4AMarch 15, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Iran and Obama Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateWhat are we to make of President Barack Obamas latest pronouncements about Irans movement toward nuclear bombs? His tough talk might have had some in uence on Iran a couple of years ago, when he was instead being kinder and gentler with the worlds leading terrorist-sponsoring nation. Now his tough talk may only in uence this years election -which may be enough for Obama. e track record of Barack Obamas pronouncements on a wide range of issues suggests that anything he says is a message written in sand, and easily blown away by the next political winds. Remember the shovel-ready projects that would spring into action and jump-start the economy, once the stimulus money was available? Obama himself laughed at this idea a year or so later, when it was clear to all that these projects were going nowhere. Remember how his administration was going to be one with transparency? Yet massive spending bills were passed too fast for the Congress itself to have read them. Remember the higher ethics his administration would practice -and yet how his own Secretary of the Treasury was appointed despite his failure to pay his taxes? If you were an Israeli, how willing would you be to risk your national survival on Obamas promise to stand by your Obamas Campaign Bully Brigade Rides Again OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate eyre baaaaaaack. Barack Obamas election-year goon squad kicked into high gear this week by kicking the presidents ercest opponents in the teeth and targeting their pocketbooks. Returning to bully business as usual, the Obama campaign launched a brazen salvo against two prominent conservative critics and their legions of private citizen donors. Lets be clear (to use Obamas favorite phrase): is is not just the politics of personal destruction. Its a vendetta of campaign nance destruction. Under the guise of disclosure, Team Obama is exploiting the power of high government o ce to intimidate lawful, peaceful contributors who support limited-government causes. In a scathing fundraising e-mail appeal, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina name-checked wealthy free-market philanthropists Charles and David Koch -along with a growing movement of grassroots conservatives who have freely, voluntarily and legally given money to the Koch-founded nonpro t activist group Americans for Prosperity and its sister foundation. As a speaker at several AFP events over the past three years, Ive met thousands of likeminded, hardworking Americans who support their work at the local, state and federal levels. e Koches sins are to 1. follow tax law and protect the identities of donors to their charitable organizations, and 2. exercise their free speech by funding advocacy ads informing the public about the Obama administrations jobs toll destruction and failed green energy investments. ( eir most recent TV spot zeroed in on the taxpayerfunded Solyndra bankruptcy.) When you attempt to drown out (Americans) voices through unlimited, secret contributions to pursue a special-interest agenda that con icts with whats best for our nation, you must expect some scrutiny of your actions, Messina railed. e threat of scrutiny was backed by Obama himself, whose o cial campaign Twitter account directed 12 million-plus followers this week to add your name to demand that the Koch brothers make their donors public. But Obamas own former top o cials run a so-called super PAC (Priorities USA) that also maintains nonpro t status and subsidizes advocacy ads while protecting its donor base. e White House, of course, is mum on the unlimited, secret contributions that Obama is now encouraging wealthy liberals and lobbyists to make in pursuit of his own special-interest agenda -i.e., re-election. e presidents apping lips are also sealed when it comes to applying his disclosure standards to the shadowy, George Sorosbacked Center for American Progress, which has supplied the Obama administration with countless top policy sta ers, including special Department of Health and Human Services assistant Michael Halle and HHS Director Jeanne Lambrew, a former senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. CAP founder John Podesta was Obamas transition chief, overseeing the backroom process of rewarding friends and allies with plum positions. CAP acks shrugged o con ict-of-interest questions: We respect the privacy of supporters who have chosen not to make their donations public, CAP spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said. As for respecting the privacy rights of Obamas foes? Not so much. It seems to me no small coincidence that this disclosure charade comes just as numerous tea party organizations are reporting that the Internal Revenue Service has targeted them for audits. According to Colleen Owens of the Richmond (Va.) Tea Party, several scal-conservative activist groups in Virginia, Hawaii, Ohio and Texas have received a spate of IRS letters. e missives demand extensive requests to identity volunteers, board members and ... donors. is is B.O.s M.O. His bully brigade did the same to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its donors during the November 2010 midterms as payback for the organizations ads opposing the federal health care takeover. And in 2008, Obamas allies at a Soros-tied out t sent out warning letters to 10,000 top GOP givers hoping to create a chilling e ect that will dry up contributions. Witch hunt leader Tom Matzzie, formerly of Sorosfunded MoveOn.org, bragged of going for the jugular and said the warning letter was just the rst step, alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives. Matzzie also advertised a $100,000 bounty for dirt on conservative political groups to create a sense of scandal around the groups and dissuade donors from giving money. e e ort was cheered by Accountable America adviser Judd Legum, founder of ink Progress -the same group that led the attack on the Chamber of Commerce and is run by Podestas Center for American Progress. Just as with the Obama super PAC led by former White House o cials, Matzzies group Accountable America was a 501(c)(4) nonpro t entity that shielded the identity of its donors. Oh, and remember this? In 2008, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, both Obama promoters, threatened to bring criminal libel charges against anyone who spread what they considered false criticisms of their Dear Leader. It is no small exaggeration to conclude that Team Obamas dead aim is to chill conservative speech and criminalize conservative dissent.

If you were a leader of Iran, what would you make of what Obama said, except that an election year might not be the best time to attack Israel? Members of the Obama administration have been pointing out how hard it would be to destroy Irans nuclear facilities, now that they have been built deep underground and dispersed. at would have been something to consider during the time when President Obama was taking leisurely and halfhearted measures to create the appearance of trying to stop the Iranian nuclear program, while vigorously warning Israel not to take military action. Time was never on our side. e risks go up exponentially the longer we wait. When the Iranian nuclear program was just getting started, it could have been destroyed before it became so big, so dispersed and so deeply dug in underground. Now, if we wait till they actually have nuclear bombs, the same kinds of arguments for inaction will carry even more weight, when the price of an attack on Iran can be the start of a nuclear Holocaust. Nor should we assume that we can remain safe by throwing Israel to the wolves, once the election is over, as might well happen if Obama is re-elected and no longer has any political reasons to pretend to be Israels friend. at kind of cynical miscalculation was made by France back in 1938, when it threw its ally, Czechoslovakia, to the wolves by refusing to defend it against Hitlers demands, despite the mutual defense treaty between the two countries. Less than two years later, Hitlers armies were invading France -using, among other things, tanks manufactured in Czechoslovakia. is was just one of the expedient miscalculations that helped bring on the bloodiest and most destructive war the world has ever known. Dare we repeat such miscalculations in a nuclear age? At the end of the Second World War, Winston Churchill said, ere never was in all history a war easier to prevent by timely action than the one which has just desolated such great areas of the globe. It might even have been prevented without the ring of a single shot, Churchill said. Early in Hitlers career as dictator of Germany, the Western powers -indeed, France alone -had such overwhelming military superiority that an ultimatum to Hitler to stop rearming would have left him little choice but to comply. But the price of stopping him went up as time went by and he kept on rearming. When Hitler sent troops into the Rhineland in 1936, in de ance of two international treaties, he knew that Germany at that point had nothing that would stop the French army if it moved in. But France was too cautious to act -and caution can be carried to the point where it becomes dangerous, as France discovered when a stronger Germany conquered it in 1940. Churchill warned, Do not let us take the course of allowing events to drift along until it is too late. But that is what expediency-minded politicians are always tempted to do. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM To the Editor, About the editorial this past week by Ruth Rupert in e Levy Journal. Ruth Rupert who I know & love as a person, friend & Jr. Postmaster received a task for which she was in no way prepared; for that shes owed an apology. e responsibility of M/C or organizer of Meet the Candidates this year prior our Inglis municipal election. ere are 2 vital issues before our town currently, 1 being the retention or dissolution of the Police Department & the latter being seating 3 new town commissioners. What Ms. Rupert didnt know is that for a multitude of these events in former years reviewing over a decade, aside candidates family members, attendance is minuscule to nonexistent. Worse had been the kangaroo court conducting of the event by hosts, because in small towns, everyone is biased for their guys or gals. Its a Junior Miss Pageant where MOTHERS of the candidates are administrators of the event which historically comes o slanted & biased at best & (like last year) a whichhunt at worst (where our IPD Chief who was there to keep order was the only 1 out of order, shouting out ats a Lie AS 1 of the candidates spoke). Ms. Rupert placed herself squarely in the same dilemma as former Masters of Ceremonies, by having a question screener since there were only about 25 people attending the event? Sadly for Inglis, thats the biggest turnout anyone can recall for one of these events, in the last 15 years, so congratulations Ruth. If anyone really wants to know how the candidates feel about any or every issue, my suggestion would be either reading their yers and mailings, or call them; both made their 24/7 phone numbers available for voters, unlike our Police Department, which has never been 24/7 while we were lied to about the issue by chiefs for over a decade. As for our kitchen, the stove hasnt worked in forever so theres no heat at all; hopefully the new commission will get the kitchen remodeled? Sincerely, Michael Mick Peters Inglis Resident and VoterLetter to the Editor continued on page 6AJournal StaffFor decades the Levy County Journal has been the place that local people and businesses could faithfully nd the legal advertisements of the Board of County Commissioners, all constitutional county o ces in the courthouse, and many other legal documents. e Journal is the paper of record by reputation to provide the legal records of Levy County to the reading public. And faithfully the Journal has adhered to a sacred oath to carefully publish these items for all to see. When the internet became a major news source, the Journal posted all those legal notices online for FREE to make sure that the wishes of the advertisers to be viewed by the public could be adhered to, even to those people who did not subscribe to the Journal or who could not a ord to. As the paper of record the Levy County Journal does not need a new set of rules to do this, we have correctly published these legal notices for decades. We know how to do it, competently and well. Now there seems to be a new set of rules being mandated by the county that covers two (2) pages in order to even be quali ed to bid for the legal advertising of the Levy County Board of County Commissioners. e Journal admits that the Board of County Commissioners can require whatever they want in order to publish their legal advertising to the public. ey are the ruling parties and if they do not choose to follow the protocol of the last 70 years they can do just that. But the new set of rules, locked in with new de nitions for what a local business is and what local preference means, have a very strange group of distinctly newspaper-like adherents that would seem to be foreign to a group of local business people and lawyers who have never owned or operated a newspaper. We were told that we were not consulted on this new set of rules because we are part of the bidding audience. So we ask, where did What is the Point of Local Preference?
The Levy County Journal 5AMarch 15, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 computer tips gator works computing 352-493-1006Ask About Our GWC Pro Care Total Technology Solutions!Many people will notice that over a period of time, their Internet Explorer (also known as their browser) starts to run slower, can sometimes encounter strange errors, and even crash randomly and close whatever websites they had open. ese errors are usually symptoms that your browser is in need of a tune-up and there are a few simple steps you can follow to help keep it running as smoothly as possible. For starters, the biggest problem most people dont even realize is they are overloading their browsers with third party add-ons that can cause errors and crash their browser. Something as simple as a Coupon toolbar adds les into Internet Explorer to run and can contribute to slower browsing and even cause Internet Explorer to close randomly if it crashes. If you are noticing these symptoms and want to see if it might be the root of your problem, most versions of Windows have an easy way of testing this. Internet Explorer has a Safe Mode which disables all noncritical add-ons from running for that session, and you can use this to go to a website you were previously having problems getting to and see if it loads correctly; if so, then you know an add-on is at fault. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that Safe Mode disables ALL add-ons, which include good ones like Adobe Flash player, so you wont be able to test most streaming videos like YouTube. Once you have tried running your browser in Safe Mode, if you notice it is running better, your best bet is to go to Start->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP) or Start->Control Panel->Programs and Features (Windows Vista/Windows 7) and see if you recognize any of the toolbars you may see on your browser. Common problem toolbars are: Crawler, Freeze, MyWebSearch, FunWebProducts, and IWant at, among others. Sometimes this alone can provide a substantial boost in your browsing speed, as your Internet Explorer is no longer spending extra resources on loading those toolbars and updating them as necessary. Another thing that most people could do more often to help maintain a stable and fast browser is to clean out their temporary internet les (also known as temp les). Temp les build up over time as your browser takes you to visit websites. is is not an attempt to track your browsing or to cause pop-ups; its simply one way your browser, such as Internet Explorer is trying to speed up website load speeds by already having parts of the website downloaded and stored in memory. e downside to this is after months of browsing, the amount of les that can build up will almost always cause any browser to slow down quite noticeably. To correct this in all versions of Internet Explorer, you should delete your temp les. e easiest way to do this is to go to Tools (depending on your version, you may see the word Tools, or a small blue gear shaped object near the very top of the window) and then scroll down to and click on Internet Options. Once that is open, you should nd options to Delete History, Delete Files, or simply Delete which you can click on. en click OK for a one time history clear out. Checking the Delete Browsing History upon Exit box will clear the history each time you close your browser. Using these options will allow you to clean out the older unnecessary les and after closing and re-opening Internet Explorer, you will usually nd that it will be running much quicker. One thing to keep in mind is that clearing your History option will also clear the AutoComplete feature of your Address Bar (i.e. you type in www.go, and the Address Bar will show www.google.com if you have been there previously, making sites easier to access if you havent already added them to your Favorites list). Using these steps, you should be able to shake some rust o of your sluggish browser and get it back into the speedier version you remember from the past.Need A Tune-Up For Your Internet Explorer? www.gatorworks.com4 WEST PARK AVENUE CHIEFLAND, FL 32626 Soon the arena of all local businesses in Levy County will have a new set of de nitions and processes that will forever change business procedures that deal with County government.

Our purpose is to help our readership, especially those like us that are small businesses whose headquarters are now and have always been in Levy County, to see the new hoops we would have to jump through to deliver on the new mandate drawn up by county attorney Anne Bast Brown. In reading this we only ask that local businesses think thoroughly about what might be added to THEIR new and upcoming qualifying mandates in order to even participate in county bids and business. It does not appear that Levy County will go forward with business as usual from now on. e hard push of Landmark Media Enterprises to publish legal advertising for the Board of County Commissioners has now involved all the small businesses in Levy County with new de nitions for all. A local business has been de ned as a building with an address in Levy County for at least one year, or a business that employs four people who have lived in Levy County for one year and that is good for Levy County. is e ort to include either a tax-paying address/business or local working people in the plan gives Levy County more jobs and revenue. Understand though, large national corporations with revenues in the billions and home o ces in cities far from Levy County, such as Wal-Mart and Landmark Media Enterprises (owners of e Chie and Citizen, e Williston Pioneer and e Cedar Key Beacon) are also considered right there in line with the mom and pop businesses and the small corporate or noncorporate businesses of Levy County. ese large billion-dollar businesses, as per the new de nitions set by the BoCC attorney, are also privy to the very same local preference being a orded to truly local small business that have started, grown and succeeded here in Levy County from their inception. ere is no de nition set for small business, only local business. Realize also that the only way the local preference rules come into play is if a quali ed local business sends in a sealed bid that is within 10% of a bid by a non-local bidder who does not qualify as a local business. And the only way a business will know that it quali es for local preference is when the county coordinator sends you a noti cation of your bid being within 10% at which time you have 5 days to come in with a bid matching that low bid. One of the questions from the Levy County Journal is this: Except for di erentiating between a quali ed local business and a non-local bidder, why do we need this local preference ordinance? Do you, small business person, think you can lower your bid to meet that of a billion-dollar non-local bidder in the rst place? Can you even come within range of a bid by a quali ed local business with local preference like Wal-Mart or Landmark? at is the only preference given to us in this instance. Meet it or lose. So what is the point of all this? e Journal realizes that some think it is all about money and making things cheaper to meet budgets. For years now we have all been given the political hype of the greatness of big government. But now the truth of the David and Goliath syndrome is coming home to Levy County small businesses. With the cost of doing business with the county growing out of reach for the small business only the big and wealthy businesses can a ord to bid or participate. e disparity creep is on as the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. e cost of big government has nally caught up and surpassed the hype of its value. We who cannot meet those low bids are going to be without the advantage of governments business anyway so why do we need all the ordinances to de ne who is a local business and who gets local preference. Nothing has changed, except a new precedent being set for more regulations in the future. e national trend of more and more regulations choking out the Davids of small business leaving only those Goliaths with lots of money in the game has hit home in Levy County. (See the new set of rules for newspapers sent to us in order to qualify to bid for legal advertising that we have been publishing for 70 years without rules on page 5A.)What is the Point of Preference? continued from page 4A The whole family checks out rocks and gems and minerals.

We regret the error and are running the picture again to give you all the story. We are all proud of the work of the safety patrollers and are glad to reprint this picture with such a worthy cause. in as deep as he. Well, come and get it then, you buzzards, Andi laughed, tossing ve twenties out on the table. e others anted up. Lett dealt two cards each, both down. Andi had two aces in the hold, and her hand only got better. e others stayed in the game out of an apparent obstinacy that dissolved to greater heights of desperation with each round of Letts deal. e bets brought more bravado than sense to each spread of cards. Lett called for the last card down. Andi peeked at hers in turn. It was the fourth ace. Two in the hold, another showing. She turned the last card dealt up on her own volition. Fair warning, boys. Last bets. Lets see what possum walks tonight. Winner takes all, the old senator announced dryly. e other men begrudgingly shoved their remaining cash to the mound of bills in the middle. Roll em, girl, Lett barked. e moment of truth has arrived! Another full house. A full boat, Stemple signed dramatically, surveying Andis splendid hand. Ladies and aces! Now Im ashamed of my poor pitiful hand, Uncle Hard said mournfully, tossing all his cards to the cash. Andi sat in obvious amazement, dumbstruck by the amount of money before her. Uncle Hard scooped up the cash into a rumbled paper sack. Stemple bragged on Andis card playing before disappearing to his truck. Uncle Hard seconded Stemple while Nolan Lett nally lit his cigar at the edge of the shed. Hardin, wrap up one of them hams for that boy, there. No, Im ne sir. Really ., Martin protested. Uncle Hard handed Andi the bag of cash instead. e bag felt heavier than she thought it should. She looked over at the old senator while he plucked a eck of tobacco from his lower lip. Hard to imagine luck like this, she said with a smile that had made her a former Watermelon Queen. ank you, Senator. Nolan Lett only nodded, squinting his eyes as if her magic smile was somehow blinding. Good night Representative Pendarvis, he said softly. A wry smile formed, and with a bob of his burr head he said, You can just leave the gate open goin out. Andi followed Martin past Letts truck to the Bronco parked out in the moonlit sand. Stemples headlights were bobbing out across the dark prairie as he went out a di erent way than they had come. Martin drove without speaking. An incredible night, Andi said nally as they roared back over the cattle gap. Yes, thats exactly what it was, Andi. InCredit-Able! an agitated Martin Sault red back. No accounting for it. Yeah, incredible! How much do you thinks in that bag, Martin? Andi asked wistfully, watching the moon dance through the ligree of mossy oaks lining the long country road. How should I know? Martin snapped. You cant be that nave, Andi. You know what just happened back there. You youre the one who took it. Count it yourself, he hu ed. I cant, she said. I stu ed it in Nolans golf bag on the way out.

I have lived in Levy County for over 25 years and I feel I have the appropriate qualities and experience to be an e ective school board member and to govern with the best interest of the students and employees of the Levy County schools in mind. I graduated from Chie and High School in 1993 and went on to graduate from Santa Fe Community College with an AA degree. I am the president and owner of Southern Insurance Agency of Chie and, a company I started from ground level in 2004. rough hard work, my faith in God and a determination to succeed, I built a business that now supports my family. I understand what it takes to make business decisions when times are tough and I know when and where to make cuts that are bene cial for all involved. From 2003 to 2010 I had the great opportunity to help with the Levy County School Board enrollment process by assisting employees with their insurance needs during the end of the year enrollments. rough this I gained valuable knowledge on how the board operates and how the bene ts are coordinated throughout the school system. Also, by being in the schools I heard the concerns of the employees and I listened to them. I understand the current hardships they are facing and by observing and listening I understand where to start to try and nd solutions to the problems they face today. I have been married to my wife, Kimberly Parnell Baker, the daughter of Mr. Dick Parnell and Mrs. Frances Parnell, for 11 years. God has blessed us with three wonderful children: Kaiden is 10, Adysen is 7 and Karsen is 6. All three attend Chie and Elementary School.. We love the outdoors and love playing a variety of sports, but most of all we enjoy being a family. I have been a volunteer baseball and football coach in the community for the past ve years with the Chie and Area Athletic Association. We are members of First Baptist Church of Chie and where I serve as the chairman of the nance committee and also serve on the deacon board. My wife Kimberly, currently a stay at home mother and school volunteer, has over 12 years experience as a middle school teacher. By being the husband of a school teacher and having many family and friends currently employed by the Levy County School system I understand the problems the employees face today. As a parent, I also understand the problems our children face and the frustrations we have as parents trying to help them. I feel that I have the experience and knowledge to be a successful board member to preserve both the future of our childrens education and the future of the employees of the Levy County Schools. I look forward to getting to know you and your concerns. Avery Baker Elects to Run for Levy County School Board Dist. 2 Seat

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. Last week we showed this photo and Angie Doty of Cedar Key School identi ed it as Heidi Weekly who was a teacher at Cedar Key School a few years ago. ank you Angie for telling us. e Levy County Sheri s O ce received a call at 10 p.m. on Mar. 10 from a family upset that their loved one had not returned from a shing trip at a Williston rock quarry. After talking with the family it was discovered that the 35-year-old man was dropped o around 1:30 p.m. at the quarry but did not have permission to sh there. e man had planned to sh all day and meet family members at 6:30 p.m. at a predetermined location. e family became alarmed when the man was not at the pick up location on time since he has type II diabetes and is dependent on insulin shots. He was also not prepared to stay in the woods all night since he had no food or water with him. e Sheri s O ce is already very familiar with this area having investigated the drowning of a young child in an adjacent rock quarry in the past and feared the worst. e deputies knew this was not going to be an easy task due to numerous lime rock pits in the area and hundreds of acres to canvass. e search team found the mans ve-gallon bucket with a two-pound bass in it near a cli At that time the team did not know if the man had experienced a medical issue and possibly fell into the lime rock pit where deputies had seen several alligators in the water. Deputies, detectives, bloodhounds and a helicopter searched for hours to no avail. Due to the terrain and over 40-foot cli s the search had to be suspended for the safety of the deputies. e newly formed Ag/Marine Unit was activated and the search began again in the daylight hours on Sunday. Around 10:15 a.m. the man was located walking in the woods. He stated to detective Crooms that he had become thirsty and left the pit to look for water to drink. He told detectives that he was tired and dehydrated and had gone to sleep in the woods. e lost sherman was reunited with his family members and no criminal charges were led. New Ag/Marine Unit Finds Lost FishermanSECTION BOne of Florida's premier Air National Guard units will be eliminated, according to proposed force structure changes released by Air Force o cials Tuesday. As part of new Department of Defense strategic guidance and the proposed Fiscal Year 2013 President's Budget, the 114th Range Operations Squadron (ROPS) based at Patrick Air Force Base will be deactivated, along with its 122 personnel. e unit consists of 105 traditional Guardsmen and 17 full-time personnel, and supports range safety operations for space launches at nearby Cape Canaveral. While the 114th cuts are part of much larger Air Force reductions designed to adjust the service's military end strength to 501,000, Florida's Air National Guard leaders are addressing the news and determining how best to assist the unit members. is is distressing news for the Florida National Guard family, speci cally the members of the 114th," said Adjutant General of Florida Maj. Gen. Emmett R. Titshaw Jr. after learning of the proposed changes on March 6. is announcement not only a ects these talented space range operations personnel, but it also a ects their families and the communities in which they live. e Florida National Guard will work in the coming days to mitigate the e ects of these announcements on these outstanding Airmen and their families. We will work with the leadership of the 114th on possible sta ng solutions going forward." e 114th was created in 1989 to provide communications capabilities, and in the mid1990s transitioned to space launch operations in support of the 45th Space Wing at Patrick Air Force Base in Cocoa Beach, Fla. e unit provides support for Atlas, Delta and Titan rocket launches, and last year assisted in the nal mission of the Space Shuttle program. "We're carefully analyzing this decision by the Air National Guard to cut the 114th ROPS, but we are going to assess this," said Commander of the Florida Air National Guard Brig. Gen. Joseph G. Balskus. "It certainly was a shock to us it was totally unexpected. We have always believed the space program was a perfect Guard mission." According to Balskus the 114th ROPS lls critical positions on the eastern range for space launches, and its secondary mission of providing mobile systems for launches is valuable for future missions, to include the X-37 program. A release from the Air Force Chief of Sta explained that the Air Force's strategy for the cuts is "to apply resources to the people, programs, and systems that will best contribute to the new DoD strategic guidance." Across the Air Force the changes include net reductions of 3,900 Active Duty, 5,100 Air National Guard and 900 Air Force Reserve billets. e Florida Air National Guard will also Presidents Budget and DoD Close Floridas 114th Space Launch UnitA Veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to e United States of America for an amount up to and including their life. Rabies Alert in Marion County experience smaller changes across the state: the 101st Air Operations Group at Tyndall Air Force Base will lose 47 civilian positions, and the 125th Fighter Wing in Jacksonville will lose seven Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and two weather positions. "We are extremely concerned how this will a ect the lives of individuals who have put their whole heart and soul into the development of the space program," Brig. Gen. Balskus explained. "We are going to treat this as a cut that will occur, but on the other hand we are going to attempt to make a case for retaining critical operational positions integral to the space launch enterprise." He said the priority will be taking care of the Airmen and their families, since the unit could be gone by March 2013.

Poor sucker thought itd be nice to invite us kids to go with them to the Red Lobster. BIG mistake! However, my six year old little brother Heath and I dived in that miniature back seat before mom could even try to talk him out of it. Yee-doggy you talk about the Clampetts coming to town? I hadnt felt so highfalutin since wed talked momma into squealing rubber in our yellow Vega out back of the Tasty Freeze! Poor mom... she couldnt stop biting her nails and looking back. I knew she was just waiting for us to live down to her expectations. Seeing her so jittery made me feel plumb awful, so I whomped Heath in the back of the head; guring he was mostly to blame. e little booger looked up from under his cotton-white mop top and gritted what baby teeth he had left, Whatcha do that for? He proceeded to stab me with an ink pen, and after a short scu e, I was forced to tell momma on him. With that, he spit on me and went back to writing his name on that fancy cow smelling seat. Mom gave us her best scowl. It was her way of reminding us of her last three dates, which wed run o before they even made it to the front stoop. Heath and I, you see, had never been too keen on that new kid-friendly, Mr. Sensitive act so popular with the players back in the 70s. Yeah, this cat had good taste in cars, but we werent easily fooled. Something about him reminded us of a politician. is Red Lobster thing was probably just a ploy to get our vote. One thing was for sure, he hadnt done his homework. Yeah, mom was prettier than a young Ellie May, but word on the street was she had a pair of kids wilder than two lop eared monkeys raised in a hollow stump. At any rate, Heath kept up his doodling, and I was glad. I gured if I could keep him busy we might keep from running o this fellow until wed at least had a chance to chew a heap of that fancy ocean food hed be springing for. I winked at momma to let her know I had it all under control. Once in the restaurant we behaved pretty well, at least for the rst four or ve minutes. After that, the sugar rush kicked in from all the candy Id stolen from the bowl up front. en we commenced bouncing around like two rookies in the Pro Rodeo bull riding nals. Heath was closest, so momma whacked him one good. e little booger merely scrunched his nose up and slid underneath the table and o towards the restroom before I could trip him or anything. I gotta go pee-pee, he called out loudly across the restaurant. Some people snickered. It was totally embarrassing. So I yelled back, Dont eat the toilet mints you little munchkin! Momma whomped me with her menu, then quickly turned to force a plastic smile at that politician of hers. A few minutes later the place was abuzz with Heaths return. He was zipping from table to table; his y wide open, doing his best Hulk imitation. Hed stare longingly at everyones food and then call out, Munchkin Man! He was like some sort of three foot tall super hero lounge lizard working the room. Needless to say, that was our last ride in a Jaguar. Poor ole momma never even got past the rst stop on the campaign trail. I reckon I should shoulder some of the blame, but it isnt like I didnt try to keep Heath busy.Obviously there are seasons in our lives were called to make sacri ces. Momma did, raising two kids as a single parent. She couldve pawned us o on somebody else while she pursued her own happiness, but she didnt. She put herself aside and stood up to her responsibilities like a parent should. I believe thats commendable before God. anks mom! Many times I have to remind myself that if reaching my dreams has to come at the expense of my family or friends, then I probably have my sights set on the wrong mark. What if Gods ultimate plan for our lives is we be willing to lay down our dreams to help someone else reach theirs? (Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 KJV) Instead of getting bitter over the sacri ces weve made, and fretting over what mightve been, maybe we should try giving thanks for being given the opportunity to be more like our Savior. Jesus laid down everything for us. But anywayWho knows? With the right campaign strategy and Jesus in our heart, one day we might all have one of those highfalutin Jaguars chariots waiting on us up in heaven! I can almost see momma squealing rubber out back of those pearly gates now. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she email@example.com.

Trees are considered co-champions when total scores di er less than 2 percent. Each of the new co-champion trees stands more than 95 feet tall, measures 45 feet in circumference, and has a crown spread of 50 feet. e bald cypress is a common native tree in Florida, so to have a champion tree for this species is a big deal, said Charlie Marcus, urban forestry program coordinator for the Florida Forest Service. is designation adds to the many unique features on District conservation lands, said District Senior Land Resources Manager Bob Heeke, who estimated that the two bald cypress trees are hundreds of years old. e location of the trees near the Suwannee River and the Florida Trail will make a great spot for nature enthusiasts to visit. e trees are located on the Districts Holton Creek Tract in Hamilton County about 10 miles southwest of Jasper. ey are located about one mile apart. e District plans to provide signage to identify the trees, which currently are unmarked. e new champion trees succeed the Senator, a 3,500 year old bald cypress in Seminole County, which burned to the ground in January. e Senator previous held the Florida champion title since 1975 when the champion tree program began.
