Ray Tremblay, both having served in Drug Units for years, visited every retail convenience store, liquor store and gas station within the city of Chie” and on April 2, 2012. All the proprietors/managers were provided written noti“ cation regarding the current emergency order issued by the State of Florida pertaining to synthetic marijuana, bath salts, and herbal substances. e emergency order makes the sale and possession of such substances a felony under Florida law. Several of the local businesses opted to voluntarily return the substances to their vendors. Others turned over their stock of now illegal synthetic marijuana to the Chie” and PD immediately, namely: Gas Mart who voluntarily relinquished possession of 120 containers of synthetic marijuana, along with the Midtown Ji y Store Chie and PDs Drug Crusaders Close Down Local Sales of Synthetic SubstancesInglis Developer Denied Zoning Change Voice of Local Businesses Heard, Local Preference Resolution TabledBy Kathy HilliardEditor e Board of County Commissioners again revisited the ongoing Local Preference Resolution 2012-17. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown spoke on the new addition to the Resolution which includes a qualifying condition that a local business not have a past record of failure. Brown noted that this was worked into the “ rst paragraph on page 5Ž and was not put on a vendors list because we dont keep one.Ž Also included was the stipulation that a bidding business can not have been barred or suspended from submitting a bid previously. e rest of the quali“ cations for designation of local business that can receive local preference remain the same; must have been in business in Levy County for the previous full year; must employ at least four residents of Levy County for one year. ere is also a Request for Bid provision as well. Commissioner Marsha Drew presented a question as to the meaning of piggybackingŽ on another government o ces contract. Brown explained that piggybacking does not include a bidding process at all as another entity does that for you. Drew again came back with a concern as to the legality of that and how local preference would come into play. Brown explained that the previous board had a piggybacking policy and that there would be no local bidding process at all since there is no selection process. Brown said, You let someone else do it for you. Another county, another state.Ž Local resident Renate Cannon made a statement concerning the piggybacking issue: You may get irate local vendors saying to you, If you piggyback, I cant even compete because you wont let me.Ž Commissioner Johnson stated that Marion Countys de“ nition of a local business quali“ ed for local preference states that the local business not be a branch of the business but have its headquarters or corporate headquarters in Marion County. He explained that he had gotten calls about Wal-Mart being considered a local businessŽ and maybe this needed some discussion. Commissioner Danny Stevens joined in that discussion stating that historically Levy County has been doing business for eons and eons with Ring Power that does not have corporate headquarters in Levy County and now Highland and Green South will have a heads up on any equipment deal because they plan on having branches within Levy County. According to Stevens the buy local is real important now with homebased companies in Levy County. Commissioner Johnson stated that this issue is the topic of discussion with everyone and asked if the Board wanted to readdress the issue. It was decided by the Board to table this issue and maybe rework the local business de“ nition to be more like that of Marion County. Looks like Levy County businesses have spoken up and are being heard. e next BoCC meeting is April 17 at 9 a.m. By Kathy HilliardEditorFloridas law enforcement community has been battling the synthetic drug realm with very little teeth up to now but Gov. Rick Scott has just signed HB1175 and put a nail in that co n given him by Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi working with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Florida Sheri s Association, Florida Police Chiefs Association and our legislators. Previously, Florida law enforcement had made arrests linked with synthetic drugs after lawmakers banned synthetic compounds sold as bath salts according to Jim Madden, FDLE assistant commissioner. But the producers just developed new formulas by slightly changing the molecules in order to avert the law just enough to be considered legal. With the new law in hand, law enforcement agencies are now on the move to remove and arrest. ese bath saltsŽ and Spice/K2Ž synthetic substances are now considered a Schedule I drug in which the purchase, possession, sale, and /or distribution can result in a felony arrest. Now the police departments and law enforcement o cers have the teeth and intend to use them. eir production was meant to be substitutes for illegal drugs and avoid prosecution while selling them on the Internet, specialty smoke shops and convenience stores. Be aware: they are now illegal and can result in a felony arrest. e Partnership at Drugfree.org states that synthetic drugs„substances that mimic the e ects of marijuana, cocaine and other illegal drugs„are causing a sharp rise in serious health problems ranging from seizures and hallucinations to death. Hospitals are seeing a rapid increase in synthetic drug users with problems including breathing problems, rapid heartbeats, delusions and extreme paranoia. As emergency physicians, we witness “ rst-hand how these dangerous synthetic drugs are harming users,Ž said Dr. David Seaberg, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP).  ese products contain chemicals that imitate the hallucinogenic or stimulant properties of marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy and methamphetamine, which can create severe paranoia that may cause users to harm themselves or others.Ž One of the major concerns involves the use of socalled bath saltsŽ which are not actual bath salts or any type of bath product. eir only known purpose is for consumption as a recreational drug. ese drugs Felony Arrests Now in Order for Possession of Synthetic Substances By Kathy HilliardEditorAt the Board of County Commissioners meeting on April 3, Darryl Diamond of Inglis and Commissioner candidate for the District 3 seat, proposed a change on his property on US 19 in east Inglis from Rural Residential to C2, commercial. Diamond presented his desire to open up an o ce for his business, Diamond Investments, Inc. that buys and sells properties of all types, and maybe in the future build a mini-storage facility that Diamond says is sorely needed in the area based on the speculation that the Progress Energy nuclear plant development further increases the need for storage units in that future. e property in question is currently in a Municipal Service District (MSD) de“ ned in the Levy County Comprehensive Plan as: ƒ. intended to be areas for urban expansion within which urban densities and intensities are allowed and urban services, such as central water, central sewer, police protection, “ re protection, solid waste collection, streets, drainage facilities and recreational facilities and services are provided, or encouraged to support development.Ž Property and homeowners in the area around Diamonds land were present to express their concerns about the future plans for the property, especially as they pertain to any future clubs, bars or facilities that would have alcohol on the premises. Diamond said they could verify with Rob Corbitt, Levy County Development Bldg O cial and Shenley Neely, Planning Director for Levy County Planning Department, that Diamond had stated there would be no bars. Commissioner Joyner asked about the chance that bottle clubsŽ could be allowed on the property which was answered by a further de“ nition that the issue of alcohol on the property was by regulatory permit and there could be no entity allowing alcohol use or consumption on the property without coming before the Board again to obtain that regulatory permit. Local Inglis resident Claudia Kaiser spoke for the resident group assembled there asking that the C2 zoning be denied. e main concerns were the alcohol issue and why the C1 zoning designation would not be enough since it allows for the business o ce. According to Kaiser, Diamond is on record at planning meetings as stating that he does not plan to build the storage facility for at least two years, so residents want to keep the zoning to C1 rather than expand the more commercialized uses at this time. Kaiser said, What we feel is going to happen is, he gets you (the BoCC) to say sure to C2, then boom … a For Sale sign.Ž To these residents the C2 zoning proposal is just to increase the value of the property for sale purposes and they dont know who will then buy it or how they will develop it. It was noted by Commissioner Marsha Drew that the application packet submitted by Diamond did not have any survey of the market value e ect of the zoning changes on the surrounding properties. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown explained that this was just an absence of criteria of approvalŽ not an application requirement. It is the choice of the applicant to present his packet either lacking or not lacking certain items. According to Brown, If he did not present it in his packet then the board can make a decision based on what was presented. It is an applicants choice if he wants to leave his application lacking.Ž At the conclusion of the presentation and hearing of speakers, the Board voted 3 to 2 to deny the zoning change with Commissioners Johnson and Bell in the minority. Commissioner Drew said, I cannot form a decision on an incomplete application.Ž continued on page 2A

The Levy County Journal 3AApril 12, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyThe Alachua Manfrom An Un• nished SunsetBy 68 the broad ribbons of asphalt identi“ ed as I-75 had been trundled and rolled out over the soft hills of North Florida. One of its cloverleaf interchanges would unfurl outside the small town of Alachua. I was a boy then, a boy when the town would change its shape and size for commerce on this great, newly-shaped river of tra c, north and south bound. Gas stations and a Holiday Inn popped up along 441 at the banked interchange. ey were brightly lit, colorful constructions appearing quickly like cereal boxes stacked along a grocers shelf. I had a job that summer pumping gas at one of those stations. Gas was 34 cents a gallon. Minimum wage was $1.60 an hour, and thats what I got paid. It was a service station and we still pumped the gas for patrons, checked the oil and washed the front window, but that would change, too. In fact, the serviceŽ and that station are gone now, as there have been several generations of development, renovation and modernization since. I was there again, at the new fueling plaza just last week. Gas was $3.98 a gallon. Managing the digital, push-button controls and card reader at the pump was about as complicated as ” ying the space shuttle. In one minute I would spend more than I made working all of a Saturday at that old station where a busy McDonalds now stands. While the towering pump clicked, blinking a ” uorescent accounting of the gallons swishing by, I leaned against my truck and recollected a Saturday afternoon years ago. It returned to me vividly, as if the Pure station was there again, spanking new, with family station wagons still tripping the alerting bell as they drove over the black rubber hose. It was late in the day that long-ago afternoon when a man in a Chrysler sedan pulled in. It had rained and water beads still rippled over his hood. e man got out and told me to “ ller up.Ž I went to work, had the gas pumping and popped the hood. He said, Say, would you happen to know a fellow named ________ that lives around here?Ž Yes, sir.Ž I did know him … a prominent businessman in town. Prominent, that is, as small town business goes. He was a big booster of the football team and his daughter (four years older than me) had been the head majorette and homecoming queen at my high school. She was prettier than Marilyn Monroe, I thought. Once, when Id been somewhere along her radiant path, shed smiled at me this sweet, wistful sort of smile. And I didnt think her smile mirthful because my ears stood out so from my buzz-cut head, either. It just felt nicer than that. But, I knew the man that way too, as the father of this youthful goddess in the glorious pantheon of boyhood dreaming. So, sure, I knew him. So then, the traveling man says, Well hes a big war hero, you know?Ž He told theyd been in the war together in the Paci“ c “ ghting the Japanese. He asked about using the phone inside, said hed like to let his old war buddy know he was passing through. Sure,Ž I replied and shut the hood. We went inside where I thumbed through the phone book for the local mans home phone number. It was a rotary dial phone on the metal desk and I pulled the numbers round until the phone began to ring on the other end. ats when I handed it over to the traveling man. I heard the Alachua mans mu ed hello from where I sat behind the desk with a shop rag in my hip pocket. is traveling man, said, Hi-ya _______!Ž He said his own name, then a nickname like Ace or Slick, or something. He said, I was just telling the boy here what a war hero you are!Ž ere was silence. e traveling man asked if he was still on the line. You there ƒ?Ž he asked. e fellow stood there looking confused. en I heard the Alachua man … like hes deep in a well … say, You stay right there. Ill be there in “ ve minutes, but you stay right there.Ž en he hung up. e traveling man scratched his head and said, Well _______ says hes coming hereƒ to meet me?Ž I could tell he was a little o -balance with the cool reception hed just gotten. I just nodded and the service bell rang as another car pulled in on the other side of the pumps. e traveling fellow pulled over to the curb by the air pump out from the station. I had just “ nished gassing that other car and washing the window when the Alachua man came wheeling into the drive. He was coming fast and pulled up alongside the traveling man. e woman in the car I was servicing paid and drove o as the local man jumped out of his Chevy and came around to cuss the traveling man straight-out. Why, Id never heard the man so much as utter a profane word in my life, and here he was red-faced and laying this man out like they were convicts cross with each other. e traveling man, he came uncoiled from his surprising reception, and I heard him “ re back with something about the bomb, the dead, the living… on I knew enough from watching Walter Cronkites e Twentieth Century documentary series to put things together after that. ey were talking about Hiroshima or Nagasaki. I didnt know exactly which, but I knew hundreds of thousands had died in those bombings. Id seen the black and white newsreels ” ickering with horri“ c images of catastrophic destruction, the burned and mutilated bodies … young and old alike … dead and dying in the toxic shadow of those megaton bombs, the most devastatingly lethal weapons the world had ever known. I knew something of the debate about their use. Id heard my own father o er his opinion, saying that ultimately more lives had been saved than lost by ending the war with this lethal, blinding white light. e traveling man calmed down when hed stood his brief and apologetic defense. e Alachua man remained ridged, red-faced and bowed. e traveling man shook his head sorrowfully and got in his car and drove away. He was driving back onto I-75 on the north bound ramp and the Alachua man was still standing where theyd argued beside the air hose. Id remained at the vacant gas pumps watching, wondering if I ought to have been there … within listening range … at all. I was a witness to something, even if I didnt know exactly what, and somehow I felt compelled to wait at the scene until questioned or ignored when it cleared. en he turned to me, this man seemingly much older now. e Alachua man, this fellow Id known from Main Street and ballgames, civic gatherings, parades and pageants. He was one of the pillars of the community, as they say, although he now slumped before me solemn and stooped-shouldered. He was in some agony I couldnt imagine at the time, but the pain in his eyes was awful and seemed to come from his very soul. He tried to speak, but his mouth quivered and he bit his lip so as not to cry. I wont say nothin ,Ž I volunteered. He nodded thankfully, tears welling up, and walked heavily to his car and drove slowly back toward town. I dont know to this day exactly what role he played in those bombings but I know thats what the altercation that day was about. I knew the man didnt want his part known. I know he su ered with it in silence. In the few years after that, when I would see him around, he made not so much as a gesture in acknowledgement that this silence was being kept between us. It was as if that summers day dust-up never happened and I wondered if then the bitter winter of his agony had paled, too. I would never know. at was so many years ago the town itself is recognizable now only by the remnant of Victorian architecture preserved along Main Street. e man is dead. So is his wife and even their beautiful daughter who died a tragic early death. And so I am telling you this, for I cant imagine thered be any harm in it now. I dont know what good, either, except to acknowledge for each of us that a time comes when suddenly we see there is sometimes more than one soul alone can bear. at was my day. And driving back up I-75 myself, I recollected the refrain of that famed old newscaster Cronkite say, as he always signed o on his Twentieth Century show What sort of day was it? A day like all days, “ lled with those events that alter and illuminate our times ... and you were there.Ž Yes, I was there.

The Levy County Journal4AApril 12, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Political Word Games Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateOne of the highly developed talents of President Barack Obama is the ability to say things that are demonstrably false, and make them sound not only plausible but inspiring. at talent was displayed just this week when he was asked whether he thought the Supreme Court would uphold ObamaCare as constitutional or strike it down as unconstitutional. He replied: Im con“ dent that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.Ž But how unprecedented would it actually be if the Supreme Court declared a law unconstitutional if it was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected CongressŽ? e Supreme Court has been doing precisely that for 209 years! Nor is it likely that Barack Obama has never heard of it. He has a degree from the Harvard law school and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago law school. In what must be one of the most famous Supreme Court cases in history -Marbury v. Madison in 1803 -Chief Justice John Marshall established the principle that the Supreme Court can declare acts of Congress null and void if these acts violate the Constitution. ey have been doing so for more than two centuries. It is the foundation of American constitutional law. ere is no way that Barack Obama has never heard of it or really believes it to be unprecedentedŽ after two centuries of countless precedents. In short, he is simply lying. Now there are di erent kinds of liars. If we must have lying Presidents of the United States, I prefer that they be like Richard Nixon. You could just look at him and tell that he was lying. But Obama is much smoother. On this and on many other issues, you would have to know what the facts are to know that he is lying. He is obviously counting on the fact that, in this era of dumbed-down education, many people have no clue as to what the facts are. He is also counting on something else -namely, that the pro-Obama media will not expose his lies. One of the many ways of lying smoothly is to simply rede“ ne words. Barack Obama is a master at that as well. In the comment on the case pending before the Supreme Court, President Obama said that he wanted to remind conservative commentatorsŽ that they have complained about judicial activismŽ -which he rede“ nes as the idea that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law.Ž First of all, every law that the Supreme Court has overturned for the past 209 years since Marbury v. Madison was a duly constituted and passed law.Ž Second, the judicial activismŽ that conservatives have complained about was judges making rulings based on how they felt personally about the issue at hand, rather than about what the Constitution of the United States said. In recent years, great e orts have been made to rede“ ne judicial activismŽ in terms of judges declaring laws unconstitutional, instead of deferringŽ to Congress or other government institutions. But what is the Constitutions Bill of Rights supposed to protect the ordinary citizen from? Government institutions! If judges are to defer to the very institutions that the Bill of Rights tries to protect the citizen from, what is the point of having a Bill of Rights? As for Supreme Court justices being unelected, that has been true since the Constitution was created. at was done deliberately, so that they could render their judgments without fear of political repercussions. If unelected Supreme Court justices are to automatically defer to elected o cials, that again raises the question of why they are there at all. Why are the taxpayers paying their salaries and housing them in an expensive marble building -just so that they can go along to get along? It would be hard to become nostalgic about Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign in disgrace. But at least you could tell when he was lying. Obamas lies are just as big but not as visible, and the media that exposed Nixon is covering for Obama. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMThe Democrats’ Election Forgery Racket OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateA few weeks ago, Obama senior adviser and seasoned Chicago operative David Axelrod joked on MSNBC about election corruption. Asked whether vote early and oftenŽ scams had come to an end in his shady hometown, Axelrod snarked: Well, certainly on the air.Ž Yuk, yuk, yuk. Behind the scenes, Democrats have been busy faking petition signatures, forging ballots and enlisting medical professionals to authorize fraudulent doctors notes for liberal teachers-union operatives protesting Republican opponents. Its no laughing matter. is week, four Democratic o cials in Indiana were hit with felony charges related to petition fraud in the states 2008 primary. e prosecutions are a result of the local South Bend Tribune newspapers investigation last fall into hundreds of county residents signaturesŽ forged on petitions used to put Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Democratic primary ballot. At least two whistle-blowing government o cials came forward to expose the forgery racket, which court documents say was formulated by Democratic Party o cials inside local party headquarters. A veteran county Democratic Party chair, Butch Morgan, resigned in October over the scandal; three employees in the St. Joseph County voter registration o ce reportedly helped Morgan execute the scheme. Among the hundreds of unsuspecting residents whose names were illegally signed to the petitions: the prosecuting attorney in the case and a former Democratic governor of the state! ats the audacity of ACORN-style hoaxes. Without the phony signatures, theres a signi“ cant chance that Obama would not have quali“ ed for the primary ballot -throwing the validity of the entire election into question. Dr. Deb Fleming, the countys Republican chairwoman, told the South Bend Tribune that the Democratic machine has dominated her backyard for decades.  ey have a culture of corruption here and throughout Indiana. Im sure there are other things. eyve just never gotten caught, she speculated. Because theyve been in control of St. Joseph County for so long, they felt they could get away with it.Ž Its a widespread culture of election corruption that has festered in Obamas Chicago, crossed into Indiana and bubbled up across the country. On Tuesday, a New York judge set new trial dates for Democratic o cials and political operatives accused of another ballot fraud conspiracy. A “ rst round of prosecutions against Democratic Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough and his codefendant, former Councilman Michael LoPorto, ended in mistrials last month. e two men also face separate voter fraud charges involving a plot by Democrats to win the radical Working Families Party primary back in 2009. e WFP is a front group for President Obamas dear old friends at fraud-plagued ACORN. According to law enforcement authorities, the ring of Democrats tried to rig the primary election for city council and county legislature by forging absentee ballots and ballot applications to ensure that their candidates also won the Working Families Party primary line. Fox News Channel investigative reporter Eric Shawn noted that a whistle-blower in the case, WFP employee Sarah Couch, told investigators that her bosses asked her to issue a Working Families Party press release that would point blame at the Republican Party, and she refused to do so.Ž Another whistle-blower, Democratic operative Anthony DeFiglio, told police that faking absentee ballots was a commonplace and accepted practice in political circles, all intended to swing an election.Ž Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, the states Medical Examining Board decided last month to investigate 11 additional doctors for writing fake sick notes for public union teachers who ditched their classrooms to protest GOP Gov. Scott Walker. Nine other medical professionals have already received slaps on the wrist. Primary petitions. Absentee ballots. Doctors orders. Fraudulent signatures are becoming the signature of desperate Democrats who play the electoral game by one set of rules: By Any Means Necessary. Yet, progressives in the media and White House continue to strike a see-no-electionfraud, hear-no-election-fraud, speak-noelection-fraud pose. And Team Obamas Axelrod supplies the laugh track. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Michelle Malkin is the author of “Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & Cronies” (Regnery 2010). Her e-mail address is malkinblog@gmail.com.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 A Load Of Bull By Daris HowardIt started out pretty much like any other project. Old John needed to load his bull into the cattle truck. Hed had the bull for a couple of years and the bulls o spring were coming of age, so the bull needed to be replaced to put new blood into the herd. Old John backed his truck up to the loading chute and prepared everything. He got the bull into the pen, and everything was going as planned, until the bull caught sight of the ramp into the truck. Now, whether that bull had seen too many of his counterparts take a one-way trip in that truck, whether he caught wind of something he didnt like, or whether he had a major aversion to being in a small metal cage on wheels, no one will ever know. But, once the bull saw the truck, the whole process ground to a halt. Old John tried everything. He put grain in the truck to coax the bull in. He got a whip and tried to convince the bull that the truck was a preferred alternative. He tried everything he could think of, but the bull planted his feet and wouldnt budge. By this time, as often happens in our farming community, everyone driving by had to stop and o er some, not always appreciated, advice. Pretty soon a small crowd of farmers had gathered. Old John, a man of few words, never said anything, though everyone else had an opinion on how to get the job done. It was suggested that they put a board behind the bull, through both sides of the chute, and then everyone could push. ey found the biggest board they could and stuck it behind the bull. ree men got on each side and started pushing. But a bull that weighs over a ton can out-push six men who, together, maybe weigh half that. Perhaps,Ž suggested James, who had just moved from a big city and bought a nearby hobby farm, He is just scared. Maybe if someone would pet him and calm him down we could get him in the truck.Ž Everyone stared at him like his rivets were coming loose. Rough and Ready Jackson, chewing on a twig of hay, said, Ill tell you what, James. You go ahead and climb in there and pet him and the rest of us will go order your co n.Ž Fred pulled up with his sheep dogs. Once he heard the problem he knew just what to do. He ordered his sheep dog, Butch, into the chute to chase that bull into the truck. Butch looked at Fred like he wondered if Fred had all of his spark plugs “ ring, but “ nally went in, barking and growling. Butch came out, ” ying o the hoof of the irate bull, and when Fred ordered Butch to try again, Butch gave him a sideways look that said, Why dont you do it yourself if you think its so fun.Ž at is when Rastus showed up. He was a cattleman if ever there was one. He wore cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, carried a lasso around in the cab of his truck and a saddle in the back, and his whole demeanor bespoke a man in the know when it came to cattle. When he found out the problem, he drawled, Why, shoot! You just aint givin that bull enough motivations all. Ill get my motivator out of my truck.Ž He came walking back with a cattle prod, which most of us call a hot shot basically a cattle taser. We all stepped aside as he gave that bull a few hundred-volt shot of motivation. e bull let out a beller, but didnt move. A couple more tries without success, and Rastus was beginning to fear hed lose face, when he hit on an idea. He reached that motivator in and zapped that bull where no male of any species likes to be zapped. at bull let out a beller like a freight train at a busy intersection and shot forward like a race car coming out of a pit stop, all four hooves squealing in the sand, all horns a-blaring. He pounded up that ramp at a run approaching the speed of sound and continued into the truck without slowing. He hit the trucks front cattle railing, snapping it like a Tinkertoy, and smashed down through the cab of the truck. He came out through the front window, made scrap metal of the hood, and kept going at a dead run through the men and dogs that were scattering for cover. He roared out the yard gate and down the road, heading for the border bellowing and snorting his rage at the injustice hed received. As everyone stood around in shock, Old John “ nally spoke the “ rst words hed said all day. He turned to Rastus and shook his head. I think you pushed him just a little too far!Ž Daris Howard, award-winning, syndicated columnist, playwright, and author, can be his website at http://www.darishoward.com NOTICEGive us YOUR opinion!

In most cases, this is very possible. e options vary depending on what you are comfortable with and what you can a ord. e “ rst thing you want to do is get to know the specs of your computer. You will need to know your computers make and model number. If you are not sure exactly what you have, you should be able to obtain that information very easily. Except for custombuilt computers, on the desktop you should be able to locate the make and model number on the front face or side panel of the computer. If you have a laptop, once you have turned it o you can carefully turn it over and locate the information on the back. Look up that information about your speci“ c system either on the manufacturers website, or just GoogleŽ it to see what others have said about your computer system. Check out your operating system and hard drive space to see if you have what you need to be able to smoothly run your computer, as well as any speci“ c programs that you want to use. You can get this information by clicking on the start menu, right click on computer,Ž then scroll down and select properties.Ž When the window pops up you will “ nd all the basic information about your computer, including processor type and speed, amount of RAM (Random Access Memory), and which Windows operating system you have. is information is especially necessary to determine if your computer will run a particular program. Sometimes, in order to bring down the price of new computers manufacturers will put in the minimum requirement of physical memory (RAM) to make their machine more a ordable for the average user. So you will want to be sure that the amount of RAM in your computer is su cient for your needs. Generally, the more RAM, the faster your computer functions. Also, the more programs you install on your computer, the more RAM it may need to keep running smoothly. To determine this, pull up your computers task managerŽ to check out the total and available physical memory on the performance tab. If you are uncertain or uncomfortable checking this out for yourself, contact your local technicians to see what kind of RAM you have and the maximum your computer can hold. You can then make an educated decision on increasing what you have. If you are interested in learning more about the features or settings available with your PC operating system, such as Windows XP, Vista or Win 7, check out the self-help website for Microsoft Windows: http://windows.microsoft. com/en US/windows/help. Microsoft also o ers training information regarding its MS O ce Program (Word, Excel & Power Point) at http://o ce.microsoft.com/en-us/. If you dont already have Microsoft O ce on your computer, or have an older version and are having di culty opening up documents in Word or Excel, and would like to save money, give OpenO ce.org a try. It is free software that can be downloaded (from a safe site) that is compatible with your Microsoft O ce Programs. is program enables you to open Word or Excel documents, make Word likeŽ documents and Excel likeŽ spreadsheets that are then saved so that someone with MS Word or Excel can open and read them as well. You can also contact your local college or vo-tech and ask about the availability of any computer introduction classes or computer basics classes. e phone number for the Chie” and Branch of Central Florida College is 352/493-9533. Work Force Connection in Chie” and 352/493-6813 and Florida Crown Work Force Career Center in Trenton 352/4633677 also o er beginners computer classes. And of course there are also many self-help books available in print. ere are even a few computer repair shops (like us) that also o er scheduled one-on-one learning sessions with the technicians. To make the most of your time, make a list of speci“ c questions that you want to go over with the technician so you can better utilize your machine. e most important thing to remember about technology is that it is forever changing, and keeping up with it is very important. Whether its through tutorials online, trusted websites, or local educational programs, many di erent options are available for you to take advantage of to get the most out of your computer.

More than 1,100 samples of seafood have been tested and the “ ndings for each one are well below the FDAs level of concern. After all the testing of seafood from the Gulf, the Department has yet to “ nd a problem with the presence of oil residue or dispersant in any of the samples. BP has given Florida $20 million for seafood testing and marketing over three years. Putnam said part of that campaign funding has been used by the state on training about seafood safety to restaurant food servers and has proven to be a successful use of marketing money. Consumer con“ dence is also back up for Gulf seafood and maybe this year will not drop o as the anniversary of the spill reminds them of the past. Of course, those of us that live here already know it is just plain good eating.BP Spill Anniversary Shows Florida Seafood Remains Safe and Good

Log Cabin Quilters The Take 5 blocks are ready to be stitched together. Each of the blocks are made up of the ve fabrics with 5 di erent shapes. Levy County Public Library Eventsby Lisa Statham Posteraro Following spring break, yet another group of students was recognized in April at Williston Elementary School during the Student of the MonthŽ in the schools media center. Students were awarded a certi“ cate in academics, citizenship or most improved; some were recognized in more than one category. Kathy Brewington, 5th grade teacher, was responsible for gathering the names and handling the creation of the certi“ cates; lab manager Charlie Watson took the pictures at the event. e 3rd grade teachers are Hillary Cribbs, Lindsey Dubock, Courtney Edwards, Mary Guinsler, Cindy Hiter, Corrie Houghtaling, Tracy Kirby and Tonya Townsend. ird graders who received April Student of the MonthŽ awards for academics were Caroline Pudlo and Madison Ervin. For citizenship only, Makayla Moscorelli, Saniyah Pullings and Rachel Pickell were honored. For Academics AND Citizenship, Chris Insprucker, Jasmyn Kelly and James Loock received recognition. Kathy Clemons, Teri Dixon, Lita Halchak, Tina Roberts, Neige Snider and Joelene Vining teach 4th grade. Fourth graders Allison Simmons, Connor Barwick and Miranda Geiger were tapped for citizenship while Mathew Carlson and Tyler Roberts received awards for being most improved. Sami Peed was awarded a certi“ cate for both academics and citizenship. Fifth grade teachers Nancy Bowman, Kathy Brewington, Jeanne DuBois, Laurie Helgerud, Nancy Priest, Serena iessen and Steve Van Zwienen presented awards to these students. Annie Hopping and Wesley Turbeville were awarded academics certi“ cates. Citizenship awards went to Arelmy Hernandez, Stephanie Richardson, Savana Castor and Will McCoy.

A photo of the event will be posted on the Wall of FameŽ in the Wildcat e Log Cabin Quilters met ursday April 5th at the Levy County Quilt Museum. e sidewalk supervisors were kept very busy with both quilts in the frames being worked on, the Take 5 quilt had people busy sewing the blocks, several were sandwiching a baby quilt together, several were working on cutting out a Braid quilt and we even had several working hard just rocking in the rocking chairs. Everyone was thrilled to be part of something new … the group working on a shared project rather than just working on their own projects. ursdays Take 5 quilt assignment was to assemble and sew the 5 di erent blocks. e machines were marked for quarter-inch seams. After sewing the pieces together, the seams were again checked to make sure they were the quarter inch. ere is a cute little gadget (a two-inch measuring gauge) that makes it easy to check the seam allowance. Im not only learning how to make a quilt, Im learning about thread. Years ago my mom made quilts with #8 cotton thread. Today there is hand-quilt thread, heavy duty hand-quilt thread, quilt thread, regularŽ thread and the list goes on. Each quilter decides what works best for them. Darlene is working on the baby quilt using squares that her mom had done years ago and Sandy, our northern friend, is working on a braid quilt. Darlene will be working on laphand quilting and Sandy will be taking her quilt back north to work on it there. I hope we see the “ nished project in the fall. Greg and six boys were out during the week doing yard work and hanging more shelves inside. anks Lancaster. We hope to see you next ursday as we need more sidewalk supervisors and rocking chair people. Wed also be happy to have a few more worker bees.Springing into Spring with WES Students of the Month for April On the rst Friday of April, Williston Elementary School principal Marla Hiers and assistant principal Angel Thomas ank the students who just received the April Student of the MonthŽ awards.

Caitlin Mixsons friends and cost him his legs when it detonated on Sept. 4, 2007 where they were serving in Iraq. e EFP (explosively formed penetrator) ripped through the Humvee the soldiers were in killing three instantly and a fourth soldier after he was taken o life support “ ve months later. Unaware that the gun barrel of his ri” e had broken o and torn through his leg, Mixson was trying to shoot at the attackers with the ri” e butt. Mixsons commanding o cer had to sit on his chest to prevent him from attempting to stand up and “ re. Five days later, Mixon woke up at a rehab facility in San Antonio with both legs amputated. is weekend, Williston-resident Mixson was doing his best to make it right for other soldiers and their families who have also endured the same tragedies of war. Medical, emotional and mental injuries need treatment and families are the ones who stand by with their injured soldier through thick and thin to help them through it all. e injured soldier is receiving needed treatment in their hospital environment, but where do the families stay as they give the much needed support to their loved one. at is what Fisher House is all about … giving families a place to stay while they stand beside their injured soldier. And Caitlin Mixson was all about helping with this project this past weekend as he helped to gather and speak to attendees and bikers from all around at Williards in Morrison for a fundraiser to pay for a Fisher House in Gainesville. Mixson said, You dont want a family to have to think about whether they can “ nd or a ord a hotel to stay or get food when they leave to be with their injured soldier.Ž e bikes were parked all over the place as hundreds of supporters of our men and women in uniform showed up to help out this most worthy program. According to their website, gainesville“ sherhouse.org, the Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports Americas military in their time of need. e program recognizes the special sacri“ ces of our men and women in uniform as well as the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by both the Departments of Defense and the Veterans Administration. Gainesville Fisher House Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonpro“ t organization dedicated to bringing a Fisher House to the campus of the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center in Gainesville, Florida. It is also dedicated to assisting the house once it is built to attend to the needs of those who will reside at the house.Ž Due to the generosity of people like those attending the fundraising rally at Willards no family pays for their stay. e Gainesville Fisher House will be paid in full. e sta ng and maintenance will be the responsibility of the VA once it is turned over to them. All the proceeds of this fundraiser which were $6,600+ go to Fisher House and according to Mixson the Fisher family matches that same amount of money to make Fisher House happen without debt and ready to be run by the VA. ank you to the Fisher family, Caitlin, Williards, the attendees and all who are supporting our injured soldiers. is is love in action and that is what America does best.

About twenty years ago I was sloshing through a slimy tub of em when my little brother Heath hooked into a “ sh to remember. Oh yeah!Ž he exclaimed,  is heres big daddy!Ž Indeed, his pole was bent in half, and his feet braced so as not to be snatched into the pond. It looked mighty convincing, but given the fact hed already used that Big daddyŽ line four times, I replied snottily, Yeah well, youll forgive me if I dont come running over.Ž When Id “ nished threading a warm runny piece of liver onto my hook, I looked up to “ nd Heath still “ ddling with his drag, and working that “ sh up and down the bank. Stop over acting dummy,Ž I shouted, Youre gonna draw attention to us.Ž Im not kidding this time Guy,Ž Heath pleaded,  is has gotta be a world record.Ž I just shook my head. Teenagers! Id be glad when he “ nally grew up like me. I wiped my slimy “ ngers on my white shorts and threatened to tell momma if he didnt stop. At this stocked cat“ sh pond you were supposed to pay for whatever you caught, so Heaths dramatics were the last thing we needed. Hed have the owner over here sni ng around until he realized wed only been pretending to slide all those cat“ sh onto our stringer. I didnt want to get kicked out until wed used up all our livers! Id caught two more “ sh before I realized Heath was still clowning around with that same one. Finally I threw my rod down and stomped over. Its probably just a big turtle,Ž I hu ed. Heath was looking even more convincing now. Fire was stabbing from his eyes, sweat boiling down his face. Alright, alrightƒŽ I relented, Pull it on up to the bank here and Ill grab it.Ž I was casually reaching down, when from out of the murky depths, emerged the ugliest premortal monster cat“ sh Id ever encountered. at steely eyed whisker lip slapped the water in retreat. I fell back in the mud with a plop, suddenly onboard with Heaths Big DaddyŽ theory! With a little patience and long stick, we were able to sling him ashore; although that thing was meanern a feverish wild boar with a sore tusk. Hes got to go thirty or better,Ž Heath sputtered. Probably,Ž I heaved, But lets throw him back before we have to pay for him!Ž at, being sound advice, didnt register with Heath. He was already imagining his picture posted up in the bait shop as the new pond record holder. As soon as I turned my back to check my pole, Heath grabbed his big trophy and took o up the hill to the weighing station.  at “ shll cost us our whole life savings!Ž I pleaded. It weighed in at just over 12 pounds, but just shy of that weeks record. (Obviously set by some other dork.) It was too late now. Heath and I both reluctantly dug into our tube socks and brought out our life savings. All for what, some old scarred up, rank, bottom dwelling monstrosity. I wont repeat all the things I called Heath on the way home. He just nodded, proud to be the broke new owner of several bags of scarcely edible meat. I reckon Heaths teenage rebellion against common sense is not a lot di erent than the one weve currently undertaken here in the United States. You see, to me it appears most folks these days would rather reel in an early grave, broke, broke down, and broke out, before ever admitting Gods ways are right. Sure, my ways smelled a lot like a tub of stink bait in the Lords nostrils too before Jesus came into my heart, but it seemed that honor, respect, and patriotism were held in much higher esteem back when I was a kid. A fellow at least knew where he stood. Today these foundations of our society are being shoved out of the public arena by dishonor, disrespect, and a myriad of special interest spinsters rehearsing their talking points. I love America with all my heart. It was built on the backs of good God fearing men and women who were willing to give their lives for a cause greater than themselves. Its still held together by good people cut from the same cloth. But Gods enemies, like little foxes, have nibbled away at the fabric of everything we have always stood for, and theyve convinced a majority of our citizens that we can now stand apart from our Creator, and His hand of blessing. Consequently, our schools become like war zones, while roving bands of lawyers stalk the halls to make sure the poor kids cant even pray for themselves. e average American seems so bombarded with negative news, or the antics of Tinsel town starlet, he appears to have grown overwhelmed and disconnected.Wheres the outcry? Where is the Church? Cowered behind padded pews? Scared we might o end someone by loving them enough to speak the Truth? Listen, no one seems to have a problem o ending us! Maybe were just scared we might lose their money? God help us.While weve sat back, power hungry career politicians and loudmouth minorities, who ” aunt their sins without shame, have systematically reeled this nation in; hook, line, and sinker. Has even the Church esteemed political correctness over common sense? Somebody has to stand up and say, No more!Ž America is one of the most blessed and powerful nations God ever established. Yet we “ nd ourselves in a war today that our military might cant win; a spiritual battle, a battle for the soul of this nation. Are we still one nation under God? Or are we are a nation, like so many before us, who has decided to exchange the Truth of God for a lie? But anywayIn the mercy of Jesus Christ there is always hope. (If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 KJV) Right now our fate weighs heavily upon the shoulders of those faithful few down on their knees, and those out on main street America living and proclaiming the Truth. However, they are in dire need of reinforcements. On what side of the fence are you standing? Will you hitch up your tube socks and get out there and help us cast the light of the glorious Gospel to this darkening nation? Its what our Commander says do. I say lets take this nation back. We may have dragged up an ugly monster from the depths, but there still may be time to roll that booger back in before we have to pay for it. I can promise you it aint worth eating. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

Jack was born in Leary, Georgia, on November 18, 1921, and grew up in Albany, Georgia. After completing high school and two years at Georgia Tech, Jack enlisted in the U. S. Army Air Corps. At the age of twenty, Jack entered the 322nd Bomber Group, and was sent overseas, where he was soon responsible for piloting the B-26 bomber in a series of high-pro“ le missions over Europe during World War II. During his service, Jack had a number of adventures from sleeping under the wings of his stranded bomber on the Sahara desert to joining King George and a young Queen Elizabeth for high tea. Jack proved himself as an exemplary airman. By 1943, Captain Jack Tyson was the “ rst combat crew member to complete 25 missions in the B-26 bomber with the U.S. Army Air Force. Jack ultimately retired from the service with a number of commendations, including the Distinguished Flying Cross Air Medal with ten Oak Leaf Clusters, the Purple Heart (awarded for wounds he su ered in the face from shrapnel), as well as the European eater Medal with ree Bronze Stars. In his personal life, Jack was married to Catharine Gould Tyson, and was subsequently married to Dorothy Aiken Tyson.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) o cers have reported seeing the “ sh jump already this year. People have been injured in accidental collisions with the jumping sturgeon. In 2011, six boaters were hurt and 11 encounters with sturgeon were reported. Whats the best course of action for avoiding a collision? e FWC recommends boaters reduce their speed to reduce the risk of impact and to give people more time to react if they do encounter a jumping sturgeon and that all boaters wear their life jackets. e Suwannee River appears to support the largest viable population of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate the annual population at 10,000-14,000 “ sh, averaging approximately 40 pounds each. Adult “ sh spend eight to nine months each year in the river spawning and three to four of the coolest months in Gulf waters. ese “ sh are in no way attacking when they jump. ey are simply doing what they have been doing for millions of years: jumping. ey arent targeting the boaters, said the FWC. Gulf sturgeon can get quite big, exceeding 8 feet and 200 pounds. Sturgeons have “ ve rows of rock-hard scutes along their sides, back and belly. When sturgeon and boaters collide, the results can be devastating. State and federal laws protect sturgeon, just like bald eagles, panthers and sea turtles. It is illegal to harvest Gulf sturgeon. Please report sturgeon collisions, call 888-404FWCC (3922). information provided by the FWCSturgeon Jumping in Suwannee River
