Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 88, NO. 45 50 CENTS THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2012 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySee page 3ASee Section C See page 8AIn Hope of Treasure New Minutes from BoCC, Williston, Bronson, Chie and e Board of County Commissioners listened to Rob Corbitt, Development Department Director, as he listed the new additions, deletions and amendments to the countys Special Permits Ordinance 2012-03 draft at Tuesdays commission meeting, May 8. e ordinance has grown from 3 pages to 7 pages and rede nes special events, adds provisions for issuing of permits and amends the Levy County Code. e general mission stated for doing all this is to protect surrounding persons, properties, public resources and facilities, the general public safety, health and welfare of the community. But the comments from the public and some commissioners brought up the obvious a lot of running around to di erent agencies to adhere to the protocol for submitting the application for a permit, then await the agencies to sign o on their part of the process, then pay all the fees, then wait the 5-7 days for the nal approval of the permit. One issue was the penalty to be paid for not adhering to the protocol $250 per day with the same penalty for someone who does go through getting the permit but does not adhere to the rules when the event comes around. From the audience Je Hardison of HardisonInk asked if paying the penalty would not end up being cheaper than going through the permitting process by the time you pay the fees and use up your time and fuel. Another audience participant expressed that the non-pro t organizations that are the major fundraising groups would have a hard time paying the $100 application fee which goes up to include the advertising costs if the event is so large as to need the review by the commissioners rather than Corbitts sta Commissioner Marsha Drew asked how Corbitt planned on deciding on the noise factor and decibel levels. Corbitt said they could see in advance there is going to be noise when a stage is put up for a band and PAs are being used saying, Anything with a PA or a band will need a waiver and stated that they will not be measuring decibel levels. Commissioner Ryan Bell asked many questions remarking as to the increase in size of the draft but most of all wanted to make sure that each agency would really understand what the process entailed after the person trying to get the permit had driven all over to comply with the di erent agencies. Bell mentioned that the Health Department is only open 4 days a week so the person would have to make that part of their understanding before starting. Commissioner Chad Johnson made a telling statement at the end of the public comments and questions, My only comment is we say we are doing all this for compatibility, public safety and good neighbor and at the end of the day we are doing this for the same reason that always troubles me, that is its from a legislative standpoint and a cover-your-countyassets and protecting yourself from being sued in a litigious society. He further remarked that the rules were being put into e ect because of the few who dont keep the rules but it is the law-abiding good citizen that has to adhere to them. I struggle with increasing this thing from 3 pages to 7 but at the same time it is part of the society we live in. Until we graduate a lot more doctors than we do lawyers this is the litigious cycle that were in. I apologize in advance to those who want to have an event in the future but at the same time not only are we protecting the individual holding the event but we are also trying to protect the citizens and taxpayers of the county, the county assets and the tax dollars they have spent for government versus paying them out in lawsuits. e entire draft resolution is printed out for you to read in Section C. e next meeting on June 5 at 5:01 p.m. at the Commissioners Meeting Room at the Bronson Courthouse will include the commissioners voting on the nal ordinance. e later time of 5:01 p.m. makes it possible for working citizens to attend to give their input before the commissioners.Cooperative E ort Drug Bust in Inglis Brings Down 12 and the KingpinFor two-and-a-half years, Chief Steven Dixon and his small town Inglis Police Department have been plagued by the blatant criminal activity they knew was happening in an isolated mobile home on Cypress Lane by a canal in the Levy County riverside town. Month after month, Dixon's police o cers and Levy County Sheri 's O ce Drug Task Force agents conducted surveillance, gathered intelligence, spoke with con dential sources, sought out physical evidence and steadily built their case against these thugs. ey suspected that an unknown quantity of stolen property was being traded at the trailer for pills and methamphetamine. As the Inglis Police Department got closer to shutting down what they knew to be a hub of meth cooking, dealing in stolen property and illegal sale of prescription pills and other drugs, they realized they needed more resources to make it all work. Partnering with the Levy County and Citrus County Sheri 's O ces, a search warrant was served at noon today at 21 Cypress Lane where nine suspects were located. Detectives, deputies and police carefully examined the scene, while crime scene technicians systematically processed the packed premises. e Levy and Citrus Sheri 's O ces also share a keen stake in the Cypress Lane address. Citrus detectives have identi ed and arrested many of the more than 90 individuals from their own county known to have ties to the clandestine Inglis location. During the daytime drug raid, authorities arrested 12 people, plus con scated methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia to include scales, lters, spoons, needles, etc. As a result of the investigation into the Levy County drug house, Citrus County deputies developed leads that a residence in Crystal River also may have stolen property. ey responded to the residence on N. Pennsylvania Avenue and recovered a stolen Honda generator, boat motor and surround-sound system. e Levy County operation was deemed a success, with a total of 12 people arrested at kingpin Marian Walker's residence. Arrested at 21 Cypress Lane in Inglis were: Marian Cockerham Walker of 21 Cypress Lane, Inglis; Terry Lee Arnold of 50 Palm Drive, Inglis; Vickie Ann Walker of 50 Palm Drive, Inglis: Brandy Safawna Smith of 588 Hwy. 40 West, Inglis; Sandra Kay Hall of 2458 South Pine Ridge Ave., Homosassa; Melissa M.

The Levy County Journal 3AMay 10, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyIn Hope of Treasure eres a good caf over on Stock Island where tables are out on the deck and breakfast is served all day. So, Id ordered eggs and fried hog sh and said something about that being one of Mel Fishers treasure hunting boats moored over there at the marina. is character at the next table says, But not the one out the day the motherlode was located. His voice was deep, but breezy like one of those late-night DJs that you used to hear on the radio in the wee hours of morning. No? I say. Nope. I can tell you the whole story. I introduced myself and he in turn said his name was Neil. First name or last? I asked. Im not telling, he answered, turning up his glass. You might be from the IRS. So I didnt know his story, but I knew some of the Mel Fisher story of how hed doggedly pursued his life-long ambition as a treasure hunter since reading Long John Silver as a boy. en, after over $20 million in investor expenditures and 20 years of searching, his determination and enduring optimism nally paid o Just 34 miles west-southwest of Key West, resting in 55 feet of water was the unfathomable treasure of the Atocha! I adjusted my chair to hear better what Neil had to say. His hair was long, but held back from his ears by a bandana knotted at the nape of his neck. It was an obvious play at pirate caricature I thought. e gold ring, too. His mustache was thick, salt and peppered and frowzy at the corners with a small patch below his lower lip. It was a craggy face only a mother could love. He began, September 4, 1622, the Tierra Firme otilla of 28 ships left Havana bound for Spain. On it was the wealth of an empire, my friend. Silver from Peru and Mexico, gold and emeralds from Colombia, pearls from Venezuela. Each ship had its crew, soldiers standing guard, passengers, and was fully stocked with materials and provisions for the long voyage. One day later, the eet found a hurricane out there in the Florida straits. By the morning of September 6th, eight of these vessels lay broken on the ocean oor, scattered from the Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas. In them lay the treasures of the New World, and with them went the untold stories of a hundred souls lost at sea. Something in the way he told the story suggested that his knowledge of shipwrecks was more intimate than that of a conch simply lying about. e server brought my breakfast for a late lunch and Neil ordered another of what he was drinking with a gesture toward the server that made clear the drink was on my tab. July 20th in 85, he continued, that was the day. My man Mel, he always said that, you know? No matter how dismal or disappointing the day before, the weeks and months before, Mel would always say, Todays the day! You knew Mel Fisher? I asked. Well, lets just say Ive been in the same room with him a time or two, Neil replied with a mischievous grin. It was Andy Matroci and Greg Wareham went down that day. e magnetometer onboard indicated a large target on the seabed. So they go down and right back up for a metal detector. Down again, they come back on a reef or what looked like a pile of stones. e metal detector went wild, brother. It was a reef alright, a reef of silver bars. Andy, he come up a yelling back to the salvage boat, Its the Motherlode! Neil cupped his hand over his mouth mimicking in hushed tones the shout, Its the Motherlode! Were sitting on silver bars! Kane Fisher, Mels son, he got on the radio back to Key West and said, Put away the charts. Weve found the main pile. And it was pretty good haul, I added. Yeah, Id say that discovery of the motherlode, careful recovery and preservation e orts altogether netted artifacts and treasure estimated at about $200 million to $400 million. ere were 127,000 silver coins boxes of coins 3,000 to a box. More than 900 silver bars averaging nearly 70 pounds apiece, and more than 700 high-quality emeralds and roughly 2,500 lighter stones. Over 250 pounds of gold bars, discs, and lengths of heavy gold chain. Hundreds of pieces of jewelry, silverware, cruci xes and gold coins. You name it. Moth-erlode! It was a long time coming, I observed. Lots of disappointment, lives lost, but Mel must have been just jubilant. Ah, Neil sco ed, Mel, he was in town there at Key West, out buying a new pair of dive ns. News was all over town before he even knew. Why the local radio station was announcing, If anyone has seen Mel Fisher, tell him he found the big pile! Neil threw back his head and laughed heartily. ats how Mel found out about it, man, well-wishers coming up and congratulating him on the street. I could picture that, the dazed expression, the confusion with all the celebration about and Mel, with his new dive ns in the box under his arm, hesitant to enter the jubilation forming about him before the nd could be veri ed for him by his own crew. Of course the whole world was up on it after that, Neil said. Jimmy Bu et sat on a pile of silver bars, played and sang for the crew. e world media ran with the news that most thought just a pipe dream. But it only got better, man. Two weeks later, Mels crew found 65 pounds of gold in the form of 77 bars, seven disks, and seven chains. ey continued on and found numerous gold and silver artifacts as well as almost 3,000 Colombian emeralds. Beyond all dreams, I commented pensively. Not beyond Mel Fishers dream, Neil announced. But its about lots more than the treasure trove, my man. Its an inspiration, you know. e Atocha, its kind of a symbol for great adventure, great striving, tremendous persistence, a dream that came true. Yes, I said. I get that, but Im still curious. I mean youve got this whole pirate-looking thing going. Whats your story born on the island? True conch? Me, he said with a laugh, Im a pirate alright. I got a mind for memory and I pirate good stories, plunder for treasures in the stories I nd. Neil was pensive for a moment and then said more softly, I teach history at a little college in Cambridge, Mass. But Im down here about this time each year. Two weeks out of 52 for the last forty. Still dreaming after all these years. I watched Neil walk out across the street, climb on a rented motor scooter with ns and goggles in the basket at his back. He buzzed back toward the marina without saying, or needing to, what his dream was about. Treasure salvage boats.

It would be an untruthful statement to tell you it does not hurt when campaign opponents and their team members start unfavorable campaign tactics. It separates friends that have supported each other for a lifetime in this county. I have requested my grandson Evan not to follow in this type of politicking; he assures me he will take the high road. As a wife, mother and grandmother I am grieved by this type of campaign tactics and I am asking that all running for county o ces this year do so in a most honorable and Godly manner. Sincerely, Mrs. Betty Smith Douglas Campaign DecorumPd. Pol. Adv. By Betty Smith Douglas, Williston, FL Approved by Evan Sullivan (Rep.) running for Levy County Sheriff ESOL aide Ana Armbrister and 3rd grade team facilitator Mary Guinsler from Williston Elementary School proudly hold up the crisp $100 bill they received from principal Marla Hiers (right). e names of all the sta members who had perfect attendance since the beginning of the second semester, the two weeks of FCAT testing, were placed in baskets, one for instructional and one for educational support personnel (ESP). And how will these ladies spend their free money? Both are mothers of brides-to-be, so they will have no trouble nding a place to spend it. I will need to have my shoes dyed to match the dress I havent even bought yet, said Guinsler, whose daughter Katelyn is getting married in July. After I give some to help with the breakfast our school is providing for Joyce Bullock Elementary next week, Im not sure where Ill spend the rest, said Armbrister, who had not had such a lucky break in a long time. Her daughter, also Ana, plans a church wedding in September. Our administration really appreciates the dedicated members of our sta , said Hiers, who donated the $200. Its always a worthwhile cause to invest in our employees. Its like a reward by being here every day to help the kids get ready for FCAT.A Lucky Day for Guinsler and Armbrister PSC Approves Florida Relay System Budget Floridas Public Service Commission (PSC) today approved the annual budget for Florida Telecommunications Relay, Inc. (FTRI), keeping the monthly surcharge paid by Florida telephone customers at 11 cents, for the fth year now. FTRI administers the statewide Florida Relay System (FRS) that provides access to basic telecommunications services for more than three million Florida citizens who are deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf/ blind, or speech-impaired. In February, the PSC approved a three-year contract with AT&T Relay Services to provide Floridas FRS service. AT&Ts new contract rate, e ective June 1, is lower than the current FRS contract rate and o ers the most cost e ective service for Floridas citizens. AT&T was also the only bidder opting to locate a call center in Florida, bringing new jobs to the state, which supports the top priority set by Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, FRS facilitates telephone calls between people with hearing loss or speech disabilities and other individuals by using specialized equipment and a communications assistance operator to relay information. FTRI is a non-pro t organization with 23 Florida locations to assist consumers with specialized phone needs. For information on how to obtain the special equipment, call FTRI at 1-800-222-3448 (Voice) or 1-888-447-5620 (Text Telephone/TTY) or visit www.ftri.org.
The Levy County Journal4AMay 10, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 The Moral Infrastructure Thomas SowellCreators Syndicate e Occupy movement, which the Obama administration and much of the media have embraced, has implications that reach far beyond the passing sensation it has created. e unwillingness of authorities to put a stop to their organized disruptions of other peoples lives, their trespassing, vandalism and violence is a de facto suspension, if not repeal, of the 14th Amendments requirement that the government provide equal protection of the laws to all its citizens. How did the Occupy movement acquire such immunity from the laws that the rest of us are expected to obey? Simply by shouting politically correct slogans and calling themselves representatives of the 99 percent against the 1 percent. But just when did the 99 percent elect them as their representatives? If in fact 99 percent of the people in the country were like these Occupy mobs, we would not have a country. We would have anarchy. Democracy does not mean mob rule. It means majority rule. If the Occupy movement, or any other mob, actually represents a majority, then they already have the votes to accomplish legally whatever they are trying to accomplish by illegal means. Mob rule means imposing what the mob wants, regardless of what the majority of voters want. It is the antithesis of democracy. In San Francisco, when the mob smashed the plate-glass window of a small business shop, the owner put up some plywood to replace the glass, and the mob wrote gra ti on his plywood. e consequences? None for the mob, but a citation for the shop owner for not removing the gra ti. When trespassers blocking other people at the University of California, Davis refused to disperse, and locked their arms with one another to prevent the police from being able to physically remove them, the police nally resorted to pepper spray to break up this human logjam. e result? e police have been strongly criticized for enforcing the law. Apparently pepper spray is unpleasant, and people who break the law are not supposed to have unpleasant things done to them. Which is to say, we need to take the enforcement out of law enforcement. Everybody is not given these exemptions from paying the consequences of their own illegal acts. Only people who are currently in vogue with the elites of the left -in the media, in politics and in academia. e 14th Amendment? What is the Constitution or the laws when it comes to ideological soul mates, especially young soul mates who remind the aging 1960s radicals of their youth? Neither in this or any other issue can the Constitution protect us if we dont protect the Constitution. When all is said and done, the Constitution is a document, a piece of paper. If we dont vote out of o ce, or impeach, those who violate the Constitution, or who refuse to enforce the law, the steady erosion of Constitutional protections will ultimately render it meaningless. Everything will just become a question of whose ox is gored and what is the political expediency of the moment. ere has been much concern, rightly expressed, about the rusting of bridges around the country, and the crumbling and corrosion of other parts of the physical infrastructure. But the crumbling of the moral infrastructure is no less deadly. e police cannot maintain law and order, even if the political authorities do not tie their hands in advance or undermine them with second-guessing after the fact. e police are the last line of defense against barbarism, but they are equipped only to handle that minority who are not stopped by the rst lines of defense, beginning with the moral principles taught at home and upheld by families, schools, and communities. But if everyone takes the path of least resistance -if politicians pander to particular constituencies and judges give only wrist slaps to particular groups or mobs who are currently in vogue, and educators indoctrinate their students with non-judgmental attitudes -then the moral infrastructure corrodes and crumbles. e moral infrastructure is one of the intangibles, without which the tangibles dont work. Like the physical infrastructure, its neglect in the short run invites disaster in the long run. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMMamas, Dont Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Julia OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateQuick, hide under the covers. e nations storyteller, Barack Obama, unveiled a frightening new fable on the Internet intended to scare women away from supporting scal conservatives in November. But as is increasingly common with Obamas social media propaganda initiatives, e Life of Julia immediately opped. Why? Because 1) self-su cient women voters arent as sheeple-ish as Democratic strategists make them out to be, 2) conservative activists are overtaking Obamas zombie army online, 3) non-delusional Americans dont want cradle-to-grave utopians turning their country into the next Greece or Spain, and 4) responsible grownups are getting sick and tired of radical Saul Alinsky-style tall tales from the progressive Pied Piper. Using snazzy graphics and interactive slideshow features, BarackObama.com spins a glowing narrative of imaginary Julias life from age 3 to 67. But Julia is a pathetic gment of the progressive imagination. She simply cannot function without the lifelong intervention of federal patriarchs. Instead of two parents preparing her for school, Obama credits Head Start bureaucrats with ensuring that Julia is ready to learn and succeed in kindergarten. Instead of individual teachers, private mentors, home-school organizers or charter school leaders, Obama extols his federal Race to the Top program for implementing the high school classes she needs to do well in college. Instead of thrift-minded families who save for their own kids higher educations (or who opt for non-college alternatives) and who encourage those kids to work in private-sector summer jobs, Obama praises his opportunity tax credit and Pell Grants for putting Julia through college. Instead of acknowledging how costly Obamacare mandates have caused individual-market health care insurers to drop plans altogether, Obama promotes the government-manufactured umbilical cord tethering children like Julia to their parents health care plans until age 26. Instead of accepting that the costs and consequences of a womans sexual choices should be a matter of personal responsibility, Big Daddy Obama heralds his religious liberty-crushing birth control/abortion mandate for allowing Julia to focus on her work instead of worrying about her health. Despite the fact that most private health care plans already covered maternal screenings, prenatal care and related screenings before Obamacare passed, the president attributes Julias pregnancy wellbeing to the law. And its not local sovereignty or nancial discipline that results in better schools for Julias new son, Zachary. Nope. Its Obamas investments in education and programs like Race to the Top. (Is there nothing Race to the Top cant do?) Under President Obama, the campaign web feature then crows, Julia starts her own web business. She quali es for a Small Business Administration loan, giving her the money she needs to invest in her business. President Obamas tax cuts for small businesses like Julias help her to get started. Shes able to hire employees, creating new jobs in her town and helping to grow the local economy. In the real world, according to Dun and Bradstreet, the SBA supported fewer than 62,000 small business loans: a measly 0.2 percent of the nations 27.5 million small businesses. e vast majority of entrepreneurs get their start without the SBAs help and want only one thing: for Obama and his wealth-con scators to leave them the heck alone. As soon as Obama publicized e Life of Julia on the web, conservative activists swarmed Twitter to provide real-world counter-narratives. Im no Julia, one wrote. As a small-business owner Im being taxed to death. I need the (government) to get out of my way and let me make money. Another young conservative female tweeted: As a woman business owner Im o ended that POTUS thinks I need him to survive and thrive. Conservative writer Kemberlee Kaye added: What the Julia example really shows is the Democrat ideal. Complete and total reliance on the government. My story? Ive founded three web ventures over the past eight years without a penny of taxpayer money or government venture socialism. We free-market-centered small-business women can grow the local economy and raise our children and improve our schools just ne without the meddling, patriarchal hand of President Obama taking credit for our every last success. After hyperventilating for months about the Republican war on women, Democratic new-media gurus inadvertently have exposed the real Barack Obama: a chauvinistic control freak who would tether every last woman and child to his ever-expanding, budget-busting Nanny State. Mamas, for the sake of your familys freedom and our republics survival, dont let your babies grow up to be Julia.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Proposed Law Would Force Churches to Host Drag Queen Parties e battle for our religious rights and moral values is now being fought in Hutchinson, Kansas. On May 15, the city council of the small town, just northwest of Wichita, will vote on whether to add sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of other protected classes, such as race, age, and disability. If passed, this new law will destroy the free exercise of religion in Hutchinson: First Baptist Church on Main Street will be required to rent their facilities for drag-queen parties and homosexual commitment ceremonies. Abundant Life Childcare, northeast of town, will be forced to hire crossdressers to supervise children. Hutchinson YMCA will be required to give cross-dressers and pedophiles unfettered access to boys and girls locker rooms. e FAQ sheet given to the Hutchinson City Council by the Human Relations Commission clearly states that homosexual rights will trump religious liberties: Q. As an employer, landlord or business owner, am I exempted from these requirements if my religious beliefs disagree? A. No. Citizens of Hutchinson who are standing for moral values have been targeted for intimidation. ose who signed a petition to the city manager against the gender identity ordinance found their full names and contact information published on the internet by the local paper. Information such as this has been used in California by activist homosexuals to punish, marginalize, and silence all opposition. Ultimately, this ordinance will open a restorm against people of faith. If passed, the ordinance will allow cases against Christian businesses, much as they have done elsewhere to Christian bed & breakfast owners, wedding photographers, and others. If a father merely asks a transgender to wait until his child is nished before entering a restroom, he will be in violation of the ordinance, said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. is proposed policy illustrates the ultimate end goal of the radical LGBT agenda: the abolition of morality in America.

Although there is no way to completely prevent such things as power failures, power surges, or any other physical damages, there are ways to minimize system damages and data loss from attack by malware, spyware, viruses or hackers. One of the most important safeguards you can implement is good password security. Many people believe that they should be ok if they have a password for their computer system or for a speci c program. e truth of the matter is a standard password typically is not enough to keep out potential hackers. When you create a secure password you do not want use an obvious one like password or 12345, your social security number or name connected to your family or city where you live. Try to use more di cult words mixed with numbers, using capital letters, numbers and symbols such as an @ for an A, $ for an S or a 3 for an E. For maximum security, you may also want to use di erent passwords for di erent sites to ensure if one becomes compromised the others would still be safe. If you are a fan of social media, and use the internet for emailing, gaming, sur ng or just like to check out popular websites (music, downloads, etc.), you never want to use an unprotected computer. Whether your Antivirus software is one that you purchase for a yearly fee or it is a free Antivirus, it will help protect you from possible threats from infected emails, sites, and the hidden spyware or viruses waiting to in ltrate your operating system. Another way to help protect your system would be to Stop and ink, before you Click, as recommended by Trend Micro. In other words, take a few extra moments to fully read and understand what is on a page or in a pop up window, before you click on something. And if you think that pop up is a virus, DONT click anywhere on the pop-up to close it out. Instead, open your Task Manager, select the Application tab, and then choose End Task to close that application (it should be the rst one listed in the Application window). If you have received a suspicious email, no matter what the actual email says think about it from this point of view. Did you know the author or previously had contact with the website initiating the email? Did you give your email address to them requesting this information? If not, then it is probably Spam. Delete the le, or have your antivirus scan the le to ensure the attachment is safe to open. If you receive a suspicious email claiming to be from a friend in your contact list, especially if it is attempting to trick you for your money or personal information, dont open the attachment or reply to the email; contact your friend by phone or text to see if they really sent it to you. If they didnt send it, then delete the suspicious email. If at any time you feel that your account has been compromised (or hacked), change your password immediately, following the recommendations above, and depending on what kind of information was accessed, follow up with your nancial institution and email provider. If you have a user account set up, always log into your personal user account, not your Administrator user account, for normal daily computer use, especially when planning to go on the internet. If you become infected while logged into the Administrator User Account, malware may have access to and be able to cause damage to your more important les such as the system les, causing you greater problems. Implementing these practices should help you to increase your computers security, keep it running smoothly and ultimately help you to feel more secure knowing that you have taken e ective steps to ensure the safety of your information.

However, national data showing a surge in fatalities in motorcycle drivers in that age group indicate all riders need to be vigilant about safety. In Florida, the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles statistics show 44 percent of motorcycle drivers killed in crashes in 2010 were age 45 or older. DHSMV joins Gov. Rick Scott in proclaiming May Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month in Florida to highlight the importance of the public safety issue. In 2008, Florida lawmakers passed a law that requires training before getting a motorcycle endorsement on a driver license. Since then, we have seen the number of motorcycle crashes fall every year, said DHSMV Executive Director Julie L. Jones. Motorcycle riding is an activity that can be enjoyable for a lifetime, and all riders should get endorsed and take steps to ride safely. Florida law requires a rider to have a motorcycle endorsement on his or her driver license. A rider must successfully complete a basic rider course through the Florida Rider Trainer Program to apply for the endorsement.Florida law requires the following for motorcycle drivers: Helmet (mandatory for riders age 20 or younger and for riders not covered by an insurance policy providing for at least $10,000 in medical bene ts for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle) Eye protection (a windscreen on a motorcycle does not qualify as eye protection) Foot pegs for passengersRiders can take additional protective measures by wearing: Proper footwear (protects feet and ankles by giving you a good grip on road surfaces) Gloves (keep hands comfortable and protected) Jacket and pants (provides protection against sunburn, windburn, dehydration and abrasions) e Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provides highway safety and security through excellence in service, education and enforcement. e Department is leading the way to a safer Florida through the e cient and professional execution of its core mission: the issuance of driver licenses, vehicle tags and titles and operation of the Florida Highway Patrol.

As a teacher I try to get my hands on all the material I need to be a successful teacher for all my children. Teachers give 100% in what they do. If you see a teacher today, give them a hug of appreciation. Teachers are masters of education. As a director, I share my knowledge and experience with all. We all work as a team to help children reach the top of their pyramid of success with skills needed to be successful in the real world. Everyone has an impact in your childs life, please give yourself a hand for making this a successful journey for your child. By: Sheila Lamb 5/3Jp125 SERVICESSHEDS, SHEDS, SHEDS! We move em.

Graduation AnnouncementLee Sullivan In the Running for Sheri of Levy CountyMy name is Lee Sullivan and I started my law enforcement career in Levy County where I grew up and graduated from Chie and High School. With your support, I hope to ful ll my career-long goal and become your Levy County Sheri While in high school, I learned the value of hard work by working in the watermelon, tobacco and hay elds. After high school I served in the United States Navy as a Seabee and upon my return to Levy County in 1981, I worked in construction and gunsmithing. It was during that period of my life that I married Donna and we have been married 30 years and have raised three children. Without her, none of my accomplishments would have been possible. I realized that my heart was in service to our community so I started my law enforcement career as a Corrections O cer with the Levy County Sheri s O ce and then moved to the Marion County Sheri s O ce when I was o ered the opportunity to become a patrol deputy. e preceding 27 years have shown me how much law enforcement and corrections have changed. My executive level experience provides me with a working knowledge of current technology, law enforcement and corrections trends and levels of accountability to improve the professional service of the Levy County Sheri s O ce. My record as a leader is well documented. At the age of 43, I started back to school. Like many of you, I juggled my career, family and school. I went nights and weekends until I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree from Saint Leo University and continued my education by earning a Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice from Saint Leo University. I am committed to the advancement of law enforcement and teach for the University of North Florida where I instruct a variety of law enforcement related classes. As a recognized subject matter expert in the eld of drug enforcement, I have also instructed drug unit commanders from all over the country on how to e ectively and e ciently manage a drug unit. e O ce of Sheri serves the people of Levy County. is means ALL the people. I am running for Sheri with no party a liation because I want to be Sheri of ALL the people of Levy County. I will be your fair and impartial Sheri Your Sheri s O ce with Lee Sullivan as Sheri will be Professional, Accountable and Transparent.

Perhaps they needed to pray about it rst? I was obviously the only one who realized the urgency of the matter, so I raised my hand. What can I say? I was new to Christianity, and eager to please. I hadnt even experienced my rst burn out yet, so I was completely ignorant of the subtle tactics of evasion, or the value of the phrase, I dont feel led. Practice C.D.s were handed out after the meeting, and I motored straight out to my truck to begin practicing for my new assignment. To my delight, Id been drafted to sing lead on the song Go tell it on the Mountain during the grand nale at our upcoming Christmas production. For the next six weeks leading up to the show, everywhere I went, my old clunker was rocking. I had dogs lining up all along my route to work each day waiting for their cue to howl. By the fth week Id even memorized the words. Everything was progressing nicely. e people in the choir were so nice too. eyd always smile so big after we practiced my song, almost like I was helping bring laughter back to their lives. Inevitably a couple of them would come up afterwards to slap me on the back and encourage me to keep practicing. However, there was one little note I was having problems with. Right at the end of the song I was supposed to belch out this blazing high note that would really bring down the house. e problem was; that note was way out of my area code. I just couldnt seem to hitch my pants up high enough to hit it, and believe me I tried. Unfortunately, my best e orts had failed to surpass the tonal quality of a wounded sea gull making his last dying wail. Finally the choir director sat me down. Just leave out that note, she urged, When you get to that part, go low. It was sound advice. (No pun intended.) I tried it. It wasnt bad. Problem solvedI guess. I mean if youre really in to working folks up to a beautiful crescendo only to nishing strong with a sad little low note.But anywayWhen the night of the show came I got all gussied up in my fancy duds usually reserved for funerals and such, and headed out. e Church was a-buzz with excitement. e house lights came down and we took the platform in all the full pageantry of our immense $300 production. Ill admit, our choir was a little shaky at rst, but as the night progressed we relaxed and really fell into a wonderful groove. Soon we were singing with great con dence, especially after wed thinned out the crowd so.When the time nally came for my song, I was really feeling strong. I couldnt believe what was bellowing from my own lips. I almost questioned whether theyd really hidden Jim Neighbors behind the curtain and given me a dummy mic. I sounded good! In fact, as I got closer to that big crescendo, I even began to have second thoughts about my decision to go low. Obviously the anointing was carrying me. Why wimp out on the best part? Surely by this point of the story, some of you more seasoned Christians are rooting for me and hoping I hadnt been too over zealous and put too much stock in those Scriptures they teach new believers like(Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,) I mean, theres no way God would intervene in a $300 production to help me hit a note thats not in my repertoire just because of a little faith, right? Let me tell you. I not only nailed that high note, I rattled the stain glass windows! I even wiggled the note around some like Mariah Carey on helium. Dont tell me my God cant watch over His Word to perform it. I might just be preaching to the choir, but maybe its time some of us stopped ducking every opportunity to volunteer and started trusting God to help us hit the high notes in our lives again. Its time to Go tell it on the Mountain!

His knowledge, passion and commitment to a team-based approach make him a major asset to the agency and well-deserving of this recognition.

NEW BUSINESS: Mayor Beatrice Roberts reviewed the current adopted procedures for Council Meetings. Mayor Roberts wanted the Clerk to supply the existing resolution regarding meeting procedure for Council to review. She wants everyone to get back following the procedures. Council asked the Clerk to provide anyone who comes to be placed on the agenda a copy of the procedures and also have some at every meeting to refer to. Letter presented from Mr. Robert Ni enegger Bronson Building O cial regarding a proposed industrial park. Clerk Brettel read the letter to Council and audience. Attorney Warm asked how the property is currently zoned, which Mr. Bob responded Agricultural. Councilman Weeks said it is a platted subdivision according to our records and has been for a very long time. Councilman Kennedy stated that Mr. McKoy owner of the said property has asked to make a presentation to the Industrial Development Committee at their next meeting. OLD BUSINESS: Mr. David Fox updating Council regarding status of CDBG program. Clerk Brettel stated that Mr. David Fox was not here tonight but would be making a full presentation next meeting April 16th. Letter presented and read from Attorney Steven Warm to Mr. Gary English, President of Florida Cable, Inc. as previously directed by Council to vacate property. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: No public participation BRONSON YOUTH LEAGUE: Nothing to report PUBLIC UTILITIES: Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford had nothing to report. Councilman Aaron Edmondson asked if repairs have been made to the bucket truck. Jimmy said that the ignition switch and battery needed to be replaced and repaired and he thought the work had been completed. SEWER COMMITTEE: Nothing to report outside of what was discussed at the workshop. ATTORNEY REPORT: Attorney Warm said that the Attorney for the benefactor regarding the re department property did get back with him and said that they would cooperate and he is talking with his client now and will get back with us as soon as possible so we can continue the process for nancing. FIRE DEPARTMENT: Chief Je DiMaggio asked if he could get an approval on the updated additions to the re department personnel manual out lining job descriptions for o cers. Councilman Berlon Weeks made a motion to approve with Councilman Kennedy seconding the motion. Mayor Roberts asked if everyone had a chance to review and if there was any discussion which there was not. She called for a vote and motion passed unanimously. CLERK REPORT : Clerk Brettel touched on a few informational items. She then discussed the letter that is required to be sent to Department of Economic Opportunity regarding any Comprehensive Plan Amendments. She said it was her understanding that if the Town was not going to make any Comp Plan Revisions a letter would just have to be written addressing that there would be no revisions and sent to DEO by May 1, 2012. She then brought back up to the Councils attention the situation with Jones Edmonds regarding the storm water master plan. Councilman Weeks said that he had spoke with both Mr. Heath Davis and Pat Webster with Suwannee River Water Management District and they said there might be some funding available but it wasnt a de nite. After some further discussion, Councilman Weeks asked permission to continue discussions with Suwannee River Water Management District for funding. Councilman Edmondson made a motion to allow with Vice Mayor Schuler giving a second. Motion passed unanimously. COUNCIL REPORT: Councilman Aaron Edmondson asked for an update on the CDBG housing grant. Clerk Brettel said that the 120 day dead line on the three houses are middle to end of April on one and middle of May on the other two. She did update the council that there have been two additional contractors that have met the quali cations and been certi ed so they will be able to bid on the next group. She went on to say that we were still looking for our second applicant that would fall in the very low income level of 30% to satisfy the requirements of the grant so the Town does not have to ask DEO for an amendment. Mr. David Fox will be giving a full update on April 16th, 2012. Councilman Berlon Weeks again asked for approval to move on purchasing the sign naming the park after James H. Cobb. He again reiterated that the initial motion that was unanimously passed was to perpetually name the park after James. He again said he is not disrespecting Mr. Charles Glover or anyone else, but still felt that James died on the job. Mrs. Natalie omas did not agree with Councilman Weeks opinion. Councilman Weeks asked why it took the family so long to come forward if they felt like Mr. Charles Glover was getting slighted. Mrs. omas said that the family was not aware because they werent present at the meetings. Mrs. omas went on to say that it really didnt even register with her until someone brought it to her attention, and that is why she felt like the park should be named the Bronson Memorial Sports Complex where several people can be honored. Once again Councilman Weeks restated his motion. Mayor Roberts asked for anymore discussion on this topic calling on each councilman individually. Councilman Kennedy said that it never dawned on him either but they did as a Council agreed to rename the park after James. He said that it seems that there has been quite a few times that after a motion is made and passed that someone wants to rethink the issue. Vice Mayor Schuler said that he feels the same as Mrs. omas. Mrs. omas did say that after James died the Council was running on emotions and she said there should be a guideline to be fair to everyone. Once again he stated there is a motion on the oor to purchase the sign. Councilman Kennedy seconded the motion to purchase the sign. Mayor Roberts called for a vote and motion passed 3-1 with Councilman Aaron Edmondson voting no. Vice Mayor Schuler asked if the high school can help with the block work. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler spoke about receiving a bid for concrete work for the community center at the park, and also stated that in regards to the potential nursing home he has a gentlemen working up a business plan. Councilman Jason Kennedy had nothing to report. Mayor Beatrice Roberts wanted to discuss when the Council wanted to have the rst meeting in May because both she and Franklin will be gone on May 7th. After some discussion it was agreed to schedule the May 7th meeting to April 30th and then the second meeting would be its usual day May 21st. Councilman Edmondson made a motion to allow second made by Vice Mayor Schuler. Motion passed unanimously. Mayor Roberts said she was approached by Mr. Francis Akins regarding the rezoning of his property. She asked what the status of that was. Clerk Brettel responded saying that when Mr. Akins rst approached the council about rezoning she told him to wait because the Town was in the process of submitting the Evaluation and Appraisal Report to DCA and then the through the public hearing process of the Comprehensive Plan Amendments he could come and ask for a rezoning of his property and save some of the fees. He had agreed to wait. When the Town nalized and submitted the EAR to DCA is when the legislature passed a new law stating that small communities under a certain population were not required to submit or go through the unfunded mandate of Comprehensive Plan Amendments and if they were not looking to change anything needed to submit a letter by May 1st, 2012. e Town of Bronson fell within those guide lines which was outlined in the letter submitted earlier in her clerk report. Mayor Roberts said that now that she is clear she will get back with Mr. Francis Akins and tell him he will just have to come and start the rezoning process if he so desires. REVIEW & PAY BILLS: Mayor Roberts asked for a motion to pay the bills, motion was moved by Vice Mayor Schuler and seconded by Councilman Jason Kennedy. Motion approved. ADJOURN: With nothing further on the agenda Mayor Beatrice Roberts adjourned the meeting at 8:23pm.
