Lindsey contracted with Ron Shepard to pick up and deliver the cows to United Producers Inc. in Illinois. e problem came when Shepard did not return with the monies given him by United Producers and meant for the local FFA kids. So Lindsey contacted his local attorney, Ray Earl omas, who in turn contacted the Levy County Sheri s O ce Investigator Jimmy Anderson on March 20, 2012. Shepard picked up 146 cows from the Suwannee River Fairgrounds on March 21. He also had an additional 17 cows on the truck that Lindsey had purchased from the Okeechobee County Fair days earlier. Investigator Anderson discovered that Shepard had been in contact with the United Producers prior to his arrival and convinced them to write the check meant for the Levy County FFA kids to his personal business, Brook eld Cattle, which is owned by Shepard and his business partner, Jeremy Pierce. Shepard made the delivery of the cows and received a check from United Producers Inc. for $200,000.21. However, he disappeared after taking possession of the check. His partner, Pierce, contacted Law Enforcement in Illinois to make a report of his missing business partner. Investigator Anderson aggressively investigated the entire transaction and found a video Modern-Day Cattle Rustlers Steal Local FFA Kids Money Ron Shepard Jeremy Pierce continued on page 2AProgress Energy Florida has led its annual nuclear cost-recovery clause (NCRC) projections with the Florida Public Service Commission (FPSC) for consideration for the 2013 billing cycle. In its ling, the utility provided updates on its proposed Levy County nuclear project and on a project to increase the capacity at the Crystal River Nuclear Plant. ese updates include new estimated in-service dates and a revised cost estimate for the Levy County nuclear project and 2013 cost-recovery estimates for the capacity upgrade project. Progress Energy Floridas currently planned nuclear investments include: Constructing two new, 1,100-megawatt (MW) nuclear reactors in Levy County, Fla. Increasing the output of the existing Crystal River Nuclear Plant in Citrus County, Fla. e NCRC ling is submitted each year in accordance with the Florida Renewable Technology and Energy E ciency Act of 2006, which encourages the development of nuclear energy by allowing utilities to use a pay-as-yougo approach and recover prudent preconstruction and interest costs of new nuclear construction or expansion of existing nuclear plants. e statute helps reduce the overall cost of new nuclear projects and provides for annual review and approval by the Florida Public Service Commission. Although states across the Southeast average about 24 percent natural gas generation, approximately 60 percent of Floridas electric capacity is currently powered by natural gas. Overdependence on any one fuel source can expose customers to potential fuel cost spikes and supply disruptions, and the FPSC has repeatedly cited the growing lack of fuel diversity in the state as a major strategic concern. Expanding utilities nuclear generation capabilities helps balance the generation eet and reduces these risks. If approved in its entirety, Progress Energys total 2013 nuclear cost-recovery clause charge would be $5.09 on a 1,000-kilowatt-hour (kWh) residential bill beginning with January 2013 billing (compared to $2.86 in 2012). As a result of the previously announced, FPSC-approved rate settlement agreement between Progress Energy and consumer advocates, the portion of the NCRC charge related to the Levy County nuclear project will increase to $3.45 on a 1,000kWh residential bill in 2013 (compared to the 2012 rate of $2.67) and will remain xed through 2017. In addition, the utility has requested to adjust the Crystal River Nuclear Plant upgraderelated portion of the NCRC charge to $1.64 on a 1,000-kWh residential bill in 2013 (compared to $0.19 in 2012). e Crystal River Nuclear Plant has been safely shut down since a delamination or separation was discovered within the wall of the plants containment building during a scheduled maintenance outage in the fall of 2009. e company and outside experts are conducting a thorough and systematic engineering analysis and review and are assessing options to repair the containment building and return the plant to service in 2014. Also included in the utilitys ling are updates to the Levy County nuclear project schedule and cost. Due to lower-than-projected customer demand, the lingering economic slowdown, uncertainty regarding potential carbon regulation and current, low natural gas prices, the company is shifting the in-service date for the rst Levy unit to 2024, with the second unit following 18 months later. e revised schedule is consistent with the approach the utility publicly discussed after announcing the recent rate settlement agreement. Although the scope and overnight cost for the Levy County nuclear project including land acquisition, related transmission work and other required investments remain essentially unchanged, the shift in schedule will increase escalation and carrying costs and raise the total estimated project cost to between $19 and $24 billion. On April 27, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the project. Based on its comprehensive review, the NRC has determined that there are no environmental impacts that would prevent the agency from issuing the combined operating license for the construction and operation of the proposed reactors. is is an important milestone for the project. e Levy County nuclear project continues to be the best long-term baseload generation option for Florida when evaluating cost, potential carbon regulation, fuel price volatility and the bene ts of fuel diversi cation, said Dolan. State-of-the-art nuclear power is important to reduce the carbon intensity and improve the fuel diversity of electric generation in Florida. By maintaining a diverse mix of generation sources, utilities are better able to mitigate the impact of fossil fuel price volatility, enabling customers to bene t from short-term, downwardprice uctuations while realizing lower and more stable electric rates over time. ( e Florida Legislature enacted a law in 2006 to encourage the development of nuclear power by permitting cost recovery for some nuclear plant project costs during the construction process. e PSC then adopted a rule on how it evaluates those costs annually.) (See the actual NRC letter for the Final Environmental Impact Statement on page 3A.)PEF Files Annual Nuclear Cost-Recovery Clause Projections with the Florida Public Service CommissionJournal Staff For awhile now the Levy County Journal has been reporting on local business and local preference issues and especially the publishing of legal ads for Levy County which has for 70 years been the hallmark of this paper of record. Many of our readers have called commissioners asking questions and giving opinions as was mentioned at the BoCC meetings. We are all community members and it is important that the events of Levy County be duly noted by everyone to those that are making decisions for the county. Next to this article is a display legal ad that was meant for everyone in Levy County concerning the changes the BoCC is making relating to Special Event Permits. We have been around this Special Event Permits mountain before so it is important to everyone in Levy County who wants to put on an event with the proper and legal blessing of the county commissioners, as it should be. e legal ad shown is an exercise for you to read and try to decipher what is going on. And you will not be able to. Purpose served. Our question is this: Did you see this ad? is ad was placed by the BoCC through the county attorney in a Chie and newspaper. If the content was intended only for Chie and residents there would be no problem. But this is intended, and should be intended, for every resident of Levy County and therefore placed in the ONLY county-wide newspaper in Levy County and the ONLY county-wide newspaper with the reputation for publishing the legal notices for all of Levy County. When questioned on the decision to publish this ad in a city newspaper, a Levy County Journal employee was told that it was due to pricing. But that pricing was at the expense of the rest of Levy County residents who do not read a Chie and newspaper. If the ad had been placed in all three of the Landmark Media newspapers in Williston, Cedar Key and Chie and, then it would have covered Levy County BUT the price would then have been three times the cost and more expensive than publishing in the Levy County Journal only. Once again this points to having the legal notices for Levy County published in the only county-wide newspaper with the reputation for publishing legal notices thereby taking the guesswork out of nding items of legal concern to ALL the residents of Levy County. It is not expected by the public to nd county ads in city newspapers or websites. It is a reasonable expectation for anyone looking for county information to nd it in a county-wide newspaper and website. If you want more information on the Special Event Permits that are being amended and added to, please call the numbers listed in the ad adjoining this article.Levy County Special Event Permits Being Changed Did You Know That?

Pierce had gotten the check from Shepard somehow. Investigator Anderson also discovered other states had active investigations. Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky and Texas all wanted to speak to these men regarding the theft of cattle from their states. Investigator Anderson's diligent work and persistence led him to contact the FBI and the Florida Division of Agriculture and the joint investigation yielded more than ample evidence for Anderson to obtain warrants for both men. On April 19, 2012, Investigator Anderson met with 8th Circuit Judge David Glant and secured warrants to arrest Ron Shepard and Jeremy Pierce for Scheme to Defraud. Each warrant had a bond of $1,000,000.00 (One MILLION dollars). Pierce turned himself in to authorities in Illinois but Shepard is still at large.information submitted by LCSO Investigator Scott Tummond.Modern-Day Cattle Rustlers continued from page 1National Police Week, May 13 19, is a time for all the survivors, families, friends and coworkers of the o cers killed in the line of duty to come together to remember and honor their loved ones, the husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles and coworkers, those who we promise to never forget. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure. In 2011 in Florida, there were 12 o cers killed in the line of duty. On May 7, 2012, families, friends and coworkers of these Florida heroes will come together in Tallahassee, Florida and remember these fallen heroes. On May 6, 2012, a candlelight service will be held at the Capital where each and every family and law enforcement agency in Florida will be able to come and light a candle in remembrance of these fallen heroes. On May 15, 2012 thousands of people will travel to Washington, D.C., where 166, o cers will be honored during National Police Week at the National Law Enforcement O cers Memorial and the National Peace O cers' Memorial Service. On July 30, 1988 Corporal David W. Moss became the only Williston Police O cer to be killed in the line of duty. e investigation showed Corporal Moss was shot and killed during a gun ght which resulted in the death of the suspect as well. David died within moments of being shot; doing the only thing he had ever wanted to do with his life. He made a positive di erence in the lives of those he served and protected. at was his simple goal, to make the world a better place, and he did. In the words of Rev. Bill Owens, Public service is not an easy profession. A public servant's time is invested in bettering lives. David Moss was not afraid to make that investment. On May 6 Corporal Moss will be remembered during the State of Florida candlelight vigil in Tallahassee. Support for fallen o cers can be shown by tying a blue ribbon to your cars antenna during National Police Week. A limited amount of ribbons are available at the Williston Police Department.

The Levy County Journal 3AMay 3, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyThe Ferrymans DaughterA Suwannee River Tale: ConclusionIn the dusk of a summers eve on the Suwannee, Hoke, a river sherman, sat in his ski preparing trotlines. He watched with a peculiar lift of his head the ferrymans daughter, Bess, in her game of hopscotch at the top of the landing. A tall delivery wagon appeared, interrupting the girls game. Hoke, who sometimes substituted for the ferryman, Pridgeon, came curiously to say with the girl that passage suspended at sunset. Pridgeon came from the house on the blu e driver, sought to persuade with urgency. Meanwhile Bess had peered up from the back step of the vans door to make a ghastly nd. In the dark heat of van sat a veiled girl and older man, both with hands and feet wrapped in bandages made of bed sheets. Her mother and sister had rushed out, too, hearing her fright. It was she, her mother, who discerned the mysterious passengers horrid condition. e doctor would reluctantly concede that they were bound for Carville, Louisiana, the location of an old plantation now a leper colony. Fear of the dread disease had overwhelmed and scattered the family back to the safety of their home, Pridgeon demanding that by daylight the wagon go by another way. He would not ferry such disease and rot across. e weary travelers could make camp on the blu but be gone by daylight. Bess alone defended the in rmed. When shed declared their right to passage, shed been sent strictly to bed. Yet the pleading eyes of the diseased girl behind the veil had touched her brave heart. While Emma slept, Bess undid the latch on the window, shed dressed back into her overalls rolled to her knees, and put something from a cigar box containing her few precious things deep into her pocket. Out the window, Bess no sooner lighted on the leafy ground beneath than she saw the icker of torch lights coming through the dense silhouette of cypresses across the river. ere were three riders on horseback, each brandishing a torch. ey wore the dark, broadbrimmed hats of men who herded woods cows in the scrub beyond the river. Bess crouched behind an oak as the men brought their horses to the waters edge. e larger one began to call out. Pridgeon! You hear me, Pridgeon? His deep voice echoed over the water. Pridgeon! e ferrymans front door screeched on its rusted hinges. Pridgeon hustled out, bouncing tenderly, barefooted over the un-raked yard, down the lime rocked landing to the ferry. I hear yah! I hear yah! Pridgeon shouted back to the torchlight re ecting over dark water. e older man raised his torch higher. Pridgeon, dont you be bringing them diseased people cross come daylight. You heah! eys unclean in the spirit, rot on this earth! You heah me, Pridgeon? I hears you! Pridgeon yowled back. I done toldem! eys goin the Georgie way come mornin! You see to it Pridgeon! the rider demanded. e horses turned in the light in the water at their shins, bounding back up the landing. Pridgeon hobbled back up to the house mumbling against Hoke under his breath. went straight to them hard fellers, dang his sorry hide. At the top of the blu he cast a wary eye toward the low re and wretched gures huddled close by. e doctor stood with a shoulder against the delivery wagons van. He lit his pipe again. Danged yalls sorry hides, too, Pridgeon muttered. Bringing somethin like this here on me. He waited at his steps. Dang all yalls sorry hides! Pridgeon whelped, muttering again as went back to bed. ere was only the glimmer of a long draw on the doctors pipe in reply. e waxing moon re ected now in shimmering swirls over the river beyond the leafy shadows of the blu e doctor heard small feet in the leaves, then saw the girl walking with her hands extended slightly as if for balance or stealth. He spoke out to her, What is it, girl? Bess held herself erect and walked into the relight. Im just out here, she announced with a glance toward the girl sitting at the re. So you know... She hesitated, uncertain of what shed say next, then blurted out, So you know everything is going to be ne. ats what. She nodded then, as if satis ed that shed spoken as shed intended. Ever things gonna be just ne. e girl at the re replied in a voice hardly distinguishable from the rst. We know you tried to help us, she said. I just dont know what alls the matter with you, but I aint scart. I just aint. I swim down in dark water, too. My sister wont. Lots of boys wont neither, but Ill go plum to the bottom and it dark as a haint down there. e girl laughed behind her veil. You must be pretty brave then. I am, Bess agreed sincerely, or not very smart. Something more than smart, child, the old man said speaking for the rst time. He raised a wrapped hand to an ear that was withered like a decayed squash. You have integrity. In an awkward attempt to evidence the old mans compliment, Bess was suddenly telling, I found a baby squirrel one time. My sisters boyfriend, he wanted to crunch it, put it out its misery. But I cared for it, kept it live, too. It runs around here. You can see it. It looks like a hundred other squirrels, but I know which one it is, mostly. You might make a ne nurse someday, the doctor said. I guess I could, Bess said ponderingly. I can do most anything I put my mind to. Im strong for a girl, too, she announced. Cant hit hard as a boy, but I can at kick the tar out of one. e girl behind the veil laughed again. It was the second time shed laughed in a long while. Bess laughed, too. Whats your name? she asked the girl. Cassandra. What kinda name is that? Greek, the old man explained. Its out of Greek mythology. I dont know nothin about all that. Its a pretty name anyhow. But what I wanna know is whats __ whats the matter with yaw, bandaged so, scarin people plumb to death you might touch em. e doctor tapped the burned tobacco from his pipe. Leprosy is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium leprae, he said matterof-factly. Were just learning about it, really. A lot superstitions surround the disease, as you may have noticed. It is not very contagious, really. Oddly, its not infectious for everyone, even among those within the same family. Children, though, are more more vulnerable. Cassandras grandfather there, he likely contracted it in South America, while a professor of antiquities years ago. It has a long incubation period, produces sores on the skinnodules, lesions are common, tissue and nerve damage, circulatory problems, decay. But we are on the verge of medicines that may provide a cure. e doctor paused in his litany of medical facts. But each day is important to treatment, he added mournfully. ats why weve persuaded Cassandra and her grandfather to come to Carville now. eres hope. But each day the disease takes what cannot be restored. Not crossing here will surely cost us ve additional days, perhaps a week. en we have to go across tonight! Bess declared. I can do it. I really can, she assured the astonished eyes in relight. What about those men over there? Cassandra asked with a worried glance. Bess had a ready reply, em men, girl theys a lot more scared of you than yous them. ey all laughed. It was simple to say, but true. If you think you can, Bess, well risk it, the doctor said. Its that important, especially for Cassandra, that we travel with all possible dispatch. I know! Me and Cassandra, wes friends. Aint we, Cassandra? e girl cloaked in stained bed sheeting stood from the log, We are friends! she said. I hadnt a friend for the longest time, and now I do, I really do. And were going across that river, Bess said. Load the wagon! In an instant Bess was on a narrow side path jumping and sliding down the blu directly to the ferry boat. Shed made the crossing dozens of times. Unlike her sister, shed was eager to work alongside her dad, walking the long wooden lever back with him to propel the boat forward along the cable over the river. Bess went about unknotting mooring lines, as the wagon rumbling down the rock grade to mount the plank. On the blu above, the doctor had built up the re to burn impressively for an hour more. e mule loaded the wagon without a hitch, though the dull thud of his hooves on the planking resonated over the river. Bess popped lose the last line and sprang aboard to crank up the loading plank. She couldnt make half a turn. e heavy planking banged back. e mule inched and the doctor sought to steady him. Just then a ski slid out from the bank shadows above the ferry. It was Hoke. Hokes at-bottom ski bumped against the ferry as he called in a stage whisper to Bess, What in the tarnations got hold ah you girl? You crazy? No I aint crazy, Hoke! Bess insisted You get up here and help me get these pitiful people across this river, right now! I aint ah gonna do it ! Yes you are, Hoke. I know you was the one that stirred up the McCaskills! But you get up here and help these people. You hear me? No, I aint. Now Hoke, dont think I dont see the way you look at me and my sister both. Shes scared of you, but I aint. You get up here and help me or Im gonna tell my daddy just how you gawk. I aint done nothin! No and you not goin to. Ill kick the tar out of you, and tell it like bloody murder. I may do it anyway if you dont get up here and help me right now! Hoke climbed from the ski to the ferry and wrestled the loading ramp up. Bess locked it in place and ran for the lever. Get out the way, girl, Hoke said. Ill put this dad nab thing over, but you better never say such to a livin soul. Surely I got at comin fer my part. You do it. Hush up and pull, Hoke. You get these people to the other side, and me and you is alright. As the ferry approached the west bank, Bess ran forward and released the ramp. It dropped atly on the descending grade. She unclamped the guard chain and dropped it to the planking. Digging in a deep pocket of her overalls she produced a butter y broach pin made of colorful cuts of seashell from her brother, a seamans apprentice. Bess jumped to the back step of the wagon as the doctor shook the reins and the mule lunged forward. Cassandra stood clutching to the lower story of the door. is here is for you, Cassandra, Bess said attaching the pin to the other girls gown of bed sheeting. Its pretty on you. Youll always be pretty! You hear me? Always! She dropped from the wagon as it went up the landing into the trees. Will you be alright? Cassandra called back. Dont never worry bout me, Bess shouted after her. e doctor stood and looked over the top of the van. He waved back boldly with a salute. ere was hope on the long, rough road ahead. en Cassandra waved, too, with her unblemished hand. e bandaged one held to the butter y pin over her heart. Her grandfather appeared at the door, o ering a solemn nod in the moonlight, a gesture of grace and dignity as the delivery wagon crested the landing and surged upon the way ahead. Hoke, Bess said. Get us back to the other side. Wes alright? Not til this ferry is tied on the other side like it aint moved a stitch, and you get yourself fore daylight to co ee with them McCaskills. Say that wagon there went by another way in the night. What if I dont wanna do that? Say I snatch you up right cher miss bossy butt! Hoke, Bess said rmly. Ill kick the ever livin tar outta you. Best you get me back fore my daddy nds out you hauled me o like this. Lord help, Hoke moaned, walking the lever back, the ferry boat in even glide over the silver ribbon of river, the moon melting over the cypress silhouette into which the wagon bound for Carville had now vanished. NRC, U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS ISSUE FINAL ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT FOR NEW REACTORS AT LEVY COUNTY SITE The Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Jacksonville District, have completed the Fin al Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Combined Licenses (COL) for the proposed Levy County Units 1 and 2. The NRC concludes in the FEIS that there are no environmental impacts that would preclude issuing the COLs for construction and operation of the proposed reactors at the site, near Crystal River, Fla. The USACE will use the information in the FEIS in making its federal permit decision in accordance with the Clean Water Act and Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899. The NRCs publishing of the FEIS is only part of the overall Levy County COL review. The agency staff continues to compile its final sa fety evaluation report (SER), which will include recommendations from the NRCs Advisory Comm ittee on Reactor Safeguards, an independent group of nuclear safety experts. The NRCs Atomic Safety and Licensing Board is currently conducting a proceeding on challenges to the staff s environmental review. The NRCs five Commissioners must also conduct a mandatory hearing regarding the application and the staffs review. All of these items must be completed before the NRC can reach a final decision on the COL application. Progress Energy submitted a COL application July 30, 2008, seeking permission to construct and operate two AP1000 nuclear reactors at the Levy County site. The AP1000 is a Westinghouse 1,100 megawatt electric pressurized-water reactor design the NRC certified in December 2011. The FEIS will be available on the NRC website The NRC staff, in cooperation with USACE, gathered comments from the community near the site in December 2008 during the environmental scoping process. The agencies issued a draft EIS in August 2010 and met with the local community again in September 2010 for additional comments.

The Levy County Journal4AMay 3, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 A Cynical Process Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateLabor unions, like the United Nations, are all too often judged by what they are envisioned as being -not by what they actually are or what they actually do. Many people, who do not look beyond the vision or the rhetoric to the reality, still think of labor unions as protectors of working people from their employers. And union bosses still employ that kind of rhetoric. However, someone once said, When I speak I put on a mask, but when I act I must take it o . at mask has been coming o more and more, especially during the Obama administration, and what is revealed underneath is very ugly, very cynical and very dangerous. First there was the grossly misnamed Employee Free Choice Act that the administration tried to push through Congress. What it would have destroyed was precisely what it claimed to be promoting -a free choice by workers as to whether or not they wanted to join a labor union. Ever since the National Labor Relations Act of 1935, workers have been able to express their free choice of joining or not joining a labor union in a federally conducted election with a secret ballot. As workers in the private sector have, over the years, increasingly voted to reject joining labor unions, union bosses have sought to replace secret ballots with signed documents -signed in the presence of union organizers and under the pressures, harassments or implicit threats of those organizers. Now that the Obama administration has appointed a majority of the members of the National Labor Relations Board, the NLRB leadership has imposed new requirements that employers supply union organizers with the names and home addresses of every employee. Nor do employees have a right to decline to have this personal information given out to union organizers, under NLRB rules. In other words, union organizers will now have the legal right to pressure, harass or intimidate workers on the job or in their own homes, in order to get them to sign up with the union. Among the consequences of not signing up is union reprisal on the job if the union wins the election. But physical threats and actions are by no means o the table, as many people who get in the way of unions have learned. Workers who do not want to join a union will now have to decide how much harassment of themselves and their family they are going to have to put up with, if they dont knuckle under. In the past, unions had to make the case to workers that it was in their best interests to join. Meanwhile, employers would make their case to the same workers that it was in their best interest to vote against joining. When the unions began losing those elections, they decided to change the rules. And after Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, with large nancial support from labor unions, the rules were in fact changed by Obamas NLRB. As if to make the outcome of workers choices more of a foregone conclusion, the time period between the announcement of an election and the election itself has been shortened by the NLRB. In other words, the union can spend months, or whatever amount of time it takes, for them to prepare and implement an organizing campaign beforehand -and then suddenly announce a deadline date for the decision on having or not having a union. e union organizers can launch their full-court press before the employers have time to organize a comparable counter-argument or the workers have time to weigh their decision, while being pressured. e last thing this process is concerned about is a free choice for workers. e rst thing it is concerned about is getting a captive group of union members, whose compulsory dues provide a large sum of money to be spent at the discretion of union bosses, to provide those bosses with both personal perks and political power to wield, on the basis of their ability to pick and choose where to make campaign contributions from the union members dues. Union elections do not recur like other elections. ey are like some ird World elections: One man, one vote -one time. And getting a recognized union unrecognized is an uphill struggle. But, so long as many people refuse to see the union for what it is, or the Obama administration for what it is, this cynical and corrupt process can continue. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMConservative Consumers: Stand Your Ground OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateWho is Rashad Robinson? And why has his fringe, race-baiting organization been able to pressure several major corporations into abandoning a pro-limited-government legislative association -all for a few cheap social-justice brownie points? Conservative consumers need to get informed, get active and stand their ground against free speech-squelching progressive activists who have demonized the American Legislative Exchange Council. is isnt just a battle over ALEC. Its a war against the lefts shakedown artists taking aim at our freedoms of speech and association. ALEC, as I reported last week, is the four-decade-old policy organization of state legislators and like-minded business people who believe in the Je ersonian principles of free markets, limited government, federalism, and individual liberty. ey are under re from a longstanding network of liberal groups -tied to the Democratic Party -that are unhappy with e ective conservative opposition at the state and federal legislative levels. Anti-ALEC hypocrites seized on the Trayvon Martin shooting case in Florida to blame ALEC and Republican lawmakers for their advocacy of Stand Your Ground self-defense legislation even though the case does not implicate the policy and ALEC followed Floridas lead on the legislation. Moreover, eight of the 15 states that have adopted such polices were helmed by Democratic governors at the time of passage. Robinson is spearheading the anti-ALEC campaign, along with Soros-backed Progress Now and a MoveOn.org/Big Labor political action committee, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC). While they claim to oppose black voter suppression by working to undermine anti-voter fraud bills backed by ALEC, Color of Changes true agenda is to chill and suppress pro-capitalist, pro-Second Amendment, pro-low taxes and pro-law enforcement lobbying and legislating in the political marketplace. Robinson is in charge of Color of Change, a radical activist group founded by disgraced 9/11 Truther, anti-police agitator, Occupy movement promoter and former Obama green jobs czar Van Jones. e group used Hurricane Katrina to condemn America as institutionally racist. Most shamefully, Jones and his edgling group helped perpetuate director Spike Lee and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhans wild conspiracy theories about governmentengineered black genocide in New Orleans. Before taking over Jones demagogue duties, Robinson previously lobbied for felon voting rights at the left-wing Soros familybacked Fair Vote. e group has repeatedly fought common-sense e orts to rein in voter fraud. Unsurprisingly, Robinson is close to the community organizer in chiefs administration. While media director at gay rights group GLAAD, Robinson traveled to Serbia in 2010 to o cially represent the U.S. at a gay pride festival. He was invited by the Obama State Department, which sponsored the trip. Robinson claims that his group has more than 800,000 members and is the nations largest online civil rights group. e numbers, however, dont add up. e Color of Change Twitter account has fewer than 14,600 followers. Robinson himself, acclaimed by leftists as a new media guru, has a measly 1,400 followers after three years on the premiere social networking platform. But the foot soldiers of radical organizer Saul Alinsky know how to conjure up facades and false narratives. Over the past several weeks, Robinson has released a series of press releases claiming mass victories in the Color of Change campaign to boycott ALEC. e bulletins are being dutifully regurgitated by sympathetic journalists such as National Public Radios Peter Overby -a former sta er at the anti-ALEC group Common Cause, a fact that he failed to disclose to radio listeners in at least two recent hit pieces on ALEC. Color of Changes corporate appeasers include McDonalds, Wendys, Mars Inc., Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, Intuit, Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, Reed Elsevier (owner of LexisNexis), American Tra c Solutions and Arizona Public Service. is week, Robinson also claimed that Yum Brands and Procter and Gamble had dropped their memberships as a result of hundreds of Color of Change phone calls. On Tuesday, I called Procter and Gamble and asked them how many phone calls they received. Company spokeswoman Christine Wever refused to answer. I asked whether the company had met at any time over the past year with Color of Change or any other protest group regarding their speci c complaints about ALEC. Wever refused to answer. I also called the media o ce at Yum Brands several times with the same questions. No response by end of business Tuesday. Its not enough for conservative consumers to avoid cowardly businesses that cave to Van Jones and company. Beating back the antiALEC mob means getting ahead of them. Color of Change and its hundreds of callers are now pressuring State Farm and Johnson and Johnson to join the spineless herd and cut ties to ALEC. Ill say it again: Silence is complicity. Speak now or surrender your ground. 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 email@example.com.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Bank of America Drops Firearms Dealers Bank Accounts Reprinted with permission from author Justin McDaniel www.nrahuntersrights.org Bank of America reportedly ended its 12-year relationship with stock and rearm maker McMillan Group International. According to a statement on McMillans Facebook page, the companys director of operations, Kelly McMillan, was told on April 20 that Bank of America no longer wished to do business with McMillan due to its rearm manufacturing operations. Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking came to my o ce, McMillan wrote. He scheduled the meeting as an account analysis meeting in order to evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them. He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and [has] become more of a rearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories. At this point I interrupted him and asked Can I possibl[y] save you some time so that you dont waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that because we are in the rearms manufacturing business you no longer [want] my business. According to McMillan, Fox responded, at is correct. McMillan then asked if the decision to end their banking relationship was political, and, according to McMillan, Fox con rmed that it was. At that point McMillan ended the meeting. His [Foxs] statement was that Bank of America had to assess the risk of doing business with a rearms manufacturer, McMillan said Monday during an continued on page 5A

After McMillan made public the details of his meeting with Bank of America, news of the banking giants alleged anti-gun policy went viral on the Internet. In response, Bank of America posted a somewhat cryptic statement on its Facebook page on Sunday, never once mentioning McMillan, the word rearms, or the rearms industry: We want to let you know that we hear your comments and questions regarding one of our customers. While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry. We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nations defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year. Despite Bank of Americas denial of McMillans claims, this is not the rst time that Bank of America has been accused of refusing to do business with gun companies. In 2010, NRA-ILA received information from a few members detailing problems rearm-related businesses were having with Bank of America. ose complaints indicated that Bank of America had adopted a policy of denying banking services to businesses associated with rearms. NRAILA sta contacted Bank of Americas corporate leadership at that time and asked them to provide speci c information regarding their policies. In a conversation with Bank of America Senior Vice President Douglas K. Bland, NRA-ILA was assured that there was no such anti-gun policy. In fact, Bland provided NRA-ILA with a written statement of their policy, which, at that time, stated, Bank of America does not have a corporate-wide policy to deny banking services solely on the applicants involvement in the rearms industry. Still, McMillan stands by his assertion that Bank of America terminated their relationship because of his companys line of business. e statement we [McMillan] posted was an accurate account of the events that transpired late last week. McMillan Group has been in good standing with B of A and a loyal customer for the past 12 years. We were told that we must nalize all of our accounts because we manufacture rearms. McMillan cannot speak for Bank of Americas company wide policies, but we can speak out about our personal experiences. We [McMillan] kindly suggest that if Corporate Bank of America has no policy against conducting business with rearms manufactures, then they should communicate these policies with their regional Vice Presidents and other management. While Bank of America maintains that it does not have an anti-gun policy, Kelly McMillans personal experience suggests otherwise. If they dont have [an anti-gun] policy, why did they tell me it was because I was in the rearms manufacturing business? asked McMillan on NRA News. If you have any rst-hand knowledge of business activities by Bank of America that are unfriendly to gun owners or manufacturers, please send an e-mail to email@example.com. Meanwhile, McMillan said he has begun looking for a rearms-friendly bank (Bank of America has given the company six months to nd a new bank) and is exploring the possibility of no longer accepting Bank of America credits cards as forms of payment.Bank of America Drops Firearms continued from page 4

My devoted father was with her day and night and picked out a quilt for her bed that she loved. e outstanding care and devotion of the Hospice sta was just incredible. When she left us, the sta put her quilt nicely on the bed, closed the blinds, put an angel on her bed table with a lit candle and her bible and some owers from a relative. ese gifts mean more to the families of those in Hospice than you will ever know, until you experience it. ank you, ladies, for your volunteered time and skills from all of us who have experienced the gift from your hands to our hearts.

I am a life-long resident of Levy County. I reside in Cedar Key with my husband, Mark, and our four children; Micah, 5, and Maya, Max and Marina, our 2-year-old triplets. Graduating from Cedar Key School in 1996, as Salutatorian of my class, I continued my education at Central Florida Community College and earned an Associate of Arts Degree. In the fall of 1998, I transferred to the University of Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education with a specialization in Special Education and Physical Education. e following year, I nished my education with a Master of Education Degree. In 2001, I began my teaching career at Chie and Elementary School. When a position opened at Cedar Key School the following year, I returned to Cedar Key and my roots. While teaching 5th Grade at Cedar Key School, I had the privilege to be the Safety Patrol Sponsor, taking the rst group of Patrollers from Cedar Key to Washington DC. In 2005, I transferred to Middle School Math and remained there until I had my rst child. Other responsibilities while teaching at Cedar Key School included Head Coach for Varsity Volleyball and Girls Varsity Basketball. One of the highlights of my teaching career was being named Cedar Key School Teacher of the Year 20052006. Being a member of the Cedar Key United Methodist Church, I have sat on numerous committees. I have taught Sunday school and have been director of Vacation Bible School. For the past 5 years I have been a stay-at-home mom. My oldest son will be starting Kindergarten in the upcoming school year and I feel that it is time for me to get involved in the school system, once again. One of the biggest challenges facing public education today is doing more with less. I consider myself a conservative and believe in scal responsibility. I also believe in doing what is best for the students of Levy County. If elected, I will strive to put the students bene t at the foundation of all my decisions. I believe my education and experience as an educator makes me a quali ed candidate for the Levy County School Board, District 2. At the heart of my decision to run for School Board are the students. Marissa DeHaven Announces for School Board District 2 Seat e 23rd Island City Young Authors Conference will take place at Cedar Key School on May 4th. Michigan writer Lisa Wheeler will be visiting.

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.SECTION BGirl power is strong at the Manatee Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps in Yankeetown, Florida. Female cadets make up about one third of the total membership with most ranking at petty o cer third class or higher. Leadership positions in the unit are lled by these young women and they often go on to be Midshipmen, instructors under 21 years old. Recently, two of the cadets and one female sta member have made some outstanding accomplishments. Ariana Pusey, age 16 of Hernando, was the rst cadet of the division to earn the rank of Chief Petty O cer, the highest rank that can be achieved by a cadet. Her mom, Christy Pusey, has been an o cer in the group for several years. Adult instructors can earn rank like the cadets and her hard work paid o recently when she was promoted from Ensign to Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG). Petty O cer Chelsea Waldrop, age 18 of Archer, was awarded the VFW Medal by Retired Navy Chief John Keith. What did it take for each of these women to reach their goals? Hard work, determination and the support of their fellow cadets. e new Chief Petty O cer says, To make CPO, I had to be in the NSCC for a total of three years, with a minimum of seven NSCC trainings. Each one had to be anywhere between 5 to 16 days long. On top of the time in rate and trainings, I had to complete and pass six correspondence courses and three exams. It's quite a bit of work but it de nitely pays o in the end. When asked what it means to have accomplished her goal, Ariana says, It means a lot to me to be the rst CPO in my unit mainly because that has been my goal for the past couple years. I am a goal setter and when I nally meet my goals it gives me a sense of accomplishment and courage knowing that I can do anything I set my mind to. I feel that when I set myself to a high standard it helps my fellow shipmate The Women of Sea CadetsFrom left to right: Retired Navy Chief John Keith, Lieutenant Todd Dunn, Petty O cer Damien Goodpaster and Petty O cer Chelsea Waldrop of Archer.CR 347 Closed Due to Sinkhole e Levy County Sheri 's O ce responded to the 10600 block of County Road 347 to a report of a sinkhole that had opened underneath the roadway. A passing motorist struck a crack which had opened across one lane.

Scott Signs Bill Providing Priority Course Registration for VeteransOn Friday, April 27, 2012 Governor Rick Scott signed HB 45 Relating to Postsecondary Course Registration for Veterans into law. e bill o ers priority course registration for veterans and their dependents utilizing the GI Bill at Florida colleges and universities, which o er priority course registration for a segment of the student population such as athletes or honor students. Realizing that those veterans and their dependents who receive the GI Bill only have 36 months to use the bene ts they have earned, this bill ensures these individuals have access to the courses they need to graduate in a timely manner at Floridas colleges and universities, said State Representative Jimmie T. Smith (R) District 43. Following the end of World War II, veterans provided an untold economic bene t to our country as they returned from war. I am excited this bill will attract these same type of individuals to Florida after they return from active service and I am honored to be able to serve them as they have served our country. Following the Governors signature, the bill will take e ect on July 1, 2012. By Kathy HilliardEditor Medical Service Dogs are the canine 24/7 caretakers of veterans choosing to participate in the medical service dog programs made available through the VA and training facilities like Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs in Williston.

Even Bobby McCallum of the Levy County Sheri s O ce came to visit the center as did Rep. Cli Stearns a few weeks ago. Recently, Michael and Honey attended a Research Day at the VA Center in Tampa and were the Show and Tell version of the medical service dog program. is team is so e ective because they are truly sincere and people can see and feel it for themselves.

After signing up a few veterans to the program, our service dog dynamic duo made the trek back home to rest and be ready for the next round of human-canine ambassadorship. anks to Michael, his devoted wife Kaye, Dogs Provide Service to PTSD VeteransMom Rene Tindale has informed us that the beautiful young lady in our Found Photo last week is none other than her daughter Amber Tindale.

Two freshly caught trout were roasting over a crackling re. Wed come to unwind and enjoy the Memorial Day weekend. Too bad four hundred other city dwellers were there looking for that same little sliver of peace on the rivers bend. We were wedged in tighter than a sumo wrestlers spandex swim shorts. My brother Heath tended the re as I gathered up a passel of wayward beer cans washed ashore from the masses of drunken canoers whod tumped at the rapids upstream. I stacked them carnival style and pulled out my little Red Rider B.B. gun. I was plinking them pretty good when Heath suddenly grabbed my barrel mid-shot. Watch out, I hu ed, waving to emphasize how hed almost caused me to shoot into a nearby tent. Better hold o on the B.B. gun, he warned, Dude next door is liable to call the park ranger. Sure enough the little fellow was stomping around snot slinging mad, although he didnt appear eager to make eye contact about it. It looks like hes su ering from the ricochetides, Heath surmised. He was, of course, referring to the unreasonable fear of having an eye put out by a B.B. gun, as proliferated by the movie e Christmas Story. Frankly Id always thought it pretty ridiculous. Heath and I had shot at each other on purpose for years growing up, and wed never been able to put out one. I was about to say as much when somebody on the other side of the stomping mad fellow plinked one of my cans into the river with his high powered pellet gun. I stood up to question the audacity of whod do such a thing. It was some yahoo in a cut o shirt t-shirt and terry cloth shorts. He stood there grinning, working a big wad of chew. When he noticed my eyes narrowing, he spat enough tobacco juice to drown a beagle. I may not have been the sharpest axe in the barn, but I recognized a challenge to my marksmanship when I saw it. I could practically hear the theme from e Good, the Bad, and the Ugly playing. So I cocked my little Red Rider Ri eman style and reared up and red all in one motion, one handed. A can went soaring. It wasnt exactly the one I was aiming at, but it was enough to send Mr. Terry Cloth to pumping up that pellet gun.For the next ten minutes we went back and forth trickshooting. I had my gun between my legs about to squeeze o a shot when I heard a safety click next door. It sounded like something a little more substantial than a B.B. gun. I looked up in time to witness Stompy Snotslinger emptying his .45 caliber automatic pistol into a small island just across the way! BOOM BOOM BOOM about eight rounds in all. A huge hush suddenly clamped down on the camp ground. Other than the soft scamper of folks ducking for cover, you couldve heard a pin drop. Even the river seemed to sti e its trickle. I was glad Id been able sti ed mine. I noticed Heath was now conveniently standing behind a tree. It seemed like a good time to join him, so without making any sudden moves, I carefully set down my Red Rider. With a friendly nod to my naughty neighbor, who was suddenly emboldened to make eye contact, I backed over to the tree; keeping my hands in plain sight of course. I noticed Mr. Terry Cloth had already chunked his iron and dove for his tent. But anywayI reckon I learned right there on the spot how quickly things can ricochet if you dont heed the lessons of the Christmas Story; no, not the movie sillythe real Christmas story. e one where a baby named Jesus was born and grows up to give His Life to o er us forgiveness from our sins. Jesus also came to open folks blinded eyes so they could see clearly enough to live side by side without shooting one another! Boy, it was clear I had a lot to learn. To borrow a line from an old Park Ranger named the Apostle Paul( is is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15 KJV) ankfully old Stompy Snotslinger chunked his pup tent in his trunk and squealed o before the Ranger showed. Later, Terry Cloth moseyed over to swap lies beside the re. We talked late into the night of how wed of had to plink ole Stompys eyes out if hed of tried to turn that gun on us. Of course, the truth was, we were all still a little shaky about witnessing how truly fragile life can be, and how quickly a little sin can escalate, and ricochet back on you.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received from samples taken March 14, 2012 show that our system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter ( g/L) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 151.4 g/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 g/L, the average level of HAA5s over the last year was 77.3 g/L. What should I do? Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion. What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. What is being done? This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: We are flushing the system. We are reducing the chlorine residual to help reduce DBPs. We are increasing sampling for DBPs. We will inform you when additional samples show levels of DBPs below the MCLs. We have an engineer evaluating the situation. He will be making a recommendation in the coming weeks. There are several options available to us. For more information, please contact the town clerk, Rose Severino, at Town Hall (352) 486-4766. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

In 2010, Floridians used 6.9 billion gallons of fresh water per day. By 2030, Florida is expected to use 8.2 billion gallons per day, a 19 percent increase over a 20-year period. Since 1999, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has worked with the industry to help producers implement Best Management Practices (BMPs). BMPs are designed to protect water quality by reducing the runo and leaching of nutrients into Florida's surface and ground waters and to enhance water conservation. More than 7 million acres of Florida agricultural lands are enrolled in BMP programs with 826,840 acres enrolled in programs during the last year alone. As part of this e ort, the department's Mobile Irrigation Lab (MIL) program provides sitespeci c expertise in analyzing irrigation systems and educating residential, commercial and agricultural property owners on how to improve water conservation and use. Over seven years, MILs have conducted more than 4,000 evaluations and more than 1,000 follow-up visits on a total of 158,867 acres of farm land. As a result of implementing MIL recommendations, agriculture has saved nearly 8 billion gallons of water with approximately 1 billion gallons of water saved in just the last year. Florida Ag Commissioner Adam Putnam visited farms in the Hastings area as part of a Tri-County tour of agricultural operations implementing Best Management Practices (BMP) to conserve and protect Florida's water resources. During his visit, Commissioner Putnam reviewed BMP plots and discussed new techniques for fertilizer banding, drip irrigation and tile drainage.Innovations in Watering Techniques Saves Florida Water Florida farmers and o cials discuss the best irrigation techniques to save water. Commissioner Putnam talks with farmers on BMPs to save water.
