When questioned on the representation from Levy County on ursday of last week Suwannee River Water Management Districts Communications Specialist, Vanessa Fultz, said: We did not receive any applications from Levy County. On March 29 the Levy County Journal ran a front page story reporting on the March 20th BoCC meeting at which the SRWMDs Jon Dinges and others presented the Partnership information to Levy County. ey requested input and applications from Levy County. According to the SRWMD, no one applied. Jacksonville now has more than enough representation; a cattle rancher, Tommy Harper of Harper Farms who has been working with the SRWMD on BMPs for some time now has a Trenton, Gilchrist County address but does have property in Levy County is on the committee and Dixie County is represented with commissioner Gene Higginbotham. Kerry Kates with the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association is listed as on the committee but their groups o ces are listed in Tallahassee and Maitland (near Orlando) which are not even in the SRWM District. e St. Johns District received 18 applications, and the Suwannee District received 24.

California earns the dubious honor of being ranked dead last for the eighth consecutive year. Florida moved up from number three last year to number two. Last year, Florida Gov. Rick Scott penned a tongue-in-cheek letter to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, warning him that Florida is coming after the Lone Star States top ranking. Since Scott took o ce, his administration has enacted business tax and regulatory reforms that have contributed to the creation of more than 140,000 private sector jobs and an unemployment drop of 2.1 percentage points last yearone of the biggest decreases in the nation. is year, 650 business leaders responded to the annual survey, up from 550 in 2011. CEOs were asked to grade states in which they do business among a variety of areas, including tax and regulation, quality of workforce and living environment. e Lone Star State was given high marks foremost for its business-friendly tax and regulatory environment.

Service Jacks Land Homosassa Woman Seriously Injured in Airboat Accident A Homosassa woman was seriously injured in an airboat accident Sunday on the Withlachoochee River. Nicole Lee Aspinwall was with Robert Joseph Miller and her children, Tyler Eversoll and Hailey Dickens, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) investigators. e four were parked on the dry riverbed at the Rutland ats o the Withlacoochee River. e airboat wasnt running. At about 1:30 p.m., Miller cranked the motor, thinking that Aspinwall was getting into the vessel. However, she was at the left rear corner of the vessel, believed to be reaching into the transom area of the airboat to retrieve something she saw in the back there, FWC investigators said. Aspinwall was struck by the airboats three-blade propeller, causing life-threatening injuries. She was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital and admitted. FWC o cials are investigating the accident. Be Careful Who You Owe Money To They Might Come to Your Home to CollectLast ursday, May 10, at 11:30 p.m. the Levy County Sheri s O ce got a report of a home invasion robbery and responded to the NE 86 Street address in Bronson. According to the Sheri s O ce report, the husband and wife said they were home alone in their bedroom when two men that were known to them entered the house uninvited. Patrick Shawn McLaughlin, 45, and Aaron Michael Miller, 31, came to collect money that McLaughlin said the wife owed to him. e husband told the deputies that he tried to get out of bed to get his wallet and McLaughlin pushed him down. is started a ght between the husband and McLaughlin and the wife stepped in to break it up while demanding they leave the house or she would call the police. McLaughlin then grabbed the wife by the neck and took both of the cell phones she was holding. During this interaction, Miller took the wallet from the husband and left the home jumping into the get-away vehicle. en McLaughlin ran out of the house and into the vehicle and both men ed the scene. Dep. Matt King located Miller a short time later at an address on Forest Lane in Bronson and arrested him. Miller was booked into the Levy County Jail charged with Home Invasion Robbery and Depriving a Victim of 911. According to Lt. Scott Tummond, as of print time, there are some leads the Sheri s O ce is following but McLaughlin is still at large and being sought by Levy County authorities.

I gure thats so fer woman folk, too. Huskins shook his head solemnly in the ski alongside. Reckoning with his own disbelief, he asked up to Clegg, You sure shes dead? She couldnt be no deader i n shes that rock yonder. I held my watch right under her nose fer the longest time, and nary a bit did its glass fog. I just dont know, Jack. You say she fell, hittin her head with a gash likeat? You dont think we orter take her on back down to Cedar Keys? Look here, Huskins, I took her in my arms my ownself up this bank to the cabin, laid her out pretty as you please on the table. I cleaned her up good, too, and made her look presentable. Her people is gonna want see she was done respectful an proper, not lug around like a side o beef. ey aint gonna believe none of it, Jack. Oh, theys gonna believe, Clegg scolded. Cause you gonna get down to Cedar Key and tell you seen the whole thing. Say I done all I could, but there werent no bringin her round. And me, Im pure grievin to death. Say Im half mad with the grief and you dont know as I might do harm to my own self so to be with her eternal. You couldnt pry me from her body with a long crowbar you tellum. You never seen such misery. Constant sorrow, my only companion now. You fetch the law, too. Bring the law? Sure I wont be idle my own self, Clegg insisted. Im gone stash this money up in that hollow cypress on the blu yonder. em crates behind the cabin, Ill toss them an the jugs, too to the cat sh fer safe keepin. Everything will be plumb ne when you bring them boys and the sheri with em. Plumb ne. Ill be pitiful as any man you ever sead. I dont like it, Clegg. em brothers of hers aint never liked you. eys decent folk an honest grocers, butchers both, Irish an clannish as they come o the boat. ey wont take kindly, no way no how, to this here. e sun lingered above the dense tree line along the West bank. It sparkled in a blinding sheen over the rippling between the shadows of each bank. Clegg said, You get goin, Huskins. You have em back ere soon as you can. Ill handle the rest. Alright then, Huskins replied gru y. He pushed from the sloop and stood, then bent and snatched the pull on his outboard. It was a blocky four cylinder big as an upturned bushel basket made of exhaust-stained aluminum. When the cruiser came in from its night rendezvous with boats out of Cuba, Jack Clegg would o oad to the outboard powered ski which was better for ushering the crates of rum up river by the light of the moon. Clegg knew each bend in the Suwannee like the palm of his own hand. And he was familiar with every sand bar and where he could cut through and beach most pursuit craft handled by anyone who knew the river less well. ere was one bar in particular upriver where the sandy shallows ran in a great crescent for nearly half a mile. Jack Clegg could thread exactly the narrow, serpentine pass along the West bank. He was especially famous for losing anyone in pursuit along there. But on this spring afternoon, it was his sidekick Huskins running the ski whining out the East pass of the Suwannee. Out past Dan May Island he set his course for Cedar Key which Huskins intended to make by dark. Clegg went back up into the trees to the cabin. ere, where the woman, Molly Garth, lay reclining on the table, her green eyes shut as if in slumber. Mollys long hair was a satin black, stark in contrast to the blood caked now about her brow. She lay with her arms crossed over a plain white blouse. Her long skirt, though shed preferred britches more, was smoothed to sandals like that worn by the Greek shermen farther down the coast. She was a woman lean and mean and full of life as quick to every appetite as she was to anger. Sassy and saucy, she was the only daughter among red-headed brothers whod fought more ercely to defend her honor than she herself had ever felt inclined to protect. Molly was a wild one, to be sure, and Jack Clegg was exactly the man her brothers had hoped shed never meet. Now Clegg stood in the cabins door and admired Molly Garth as if for the rst time. He might have felt remorse, he said to himself, had she not been so all- red quick to slash deeply with her sharp tongue. A sassy little meat axe, as Clegg recalled. He sat in a hide-bottomed chair beside the window with a jug. While he drank, he remembered better times when theyd ght, though the making-up with Molly would be as passionate as their disagreements were. Recollection dissolved to dreaming. e shadows of the vast river hammock about him swallowed the cabin slowly, leaving but a faint wisp of moonlight from the window opened to the pale river beyond the dark trees. Before Huskins could reach Rye Key, the outboard sputtered empty and he had to pole the few remaining miles to Cedar Key. It was well past midnight before he put ashore. So then he had to decide if he would wake the Garth brothers or nd a lawman rst. He thought it better to make it the other way round. He tried the telegraph o ce rst. Back in the cabin on the Suwannee, Clegg woke to a chilling sound. A way o in the slough came a repeated distant cry, not unlike that of a child or woman lost out in the dark woods. Clegg sat upright with the jug in his lap and leaned forward to peer into the impenetrable darkness beyond the clearing. e shadowy form of Molly Garth lay xed on the rough planking of the cypress table. Clegg heard nothing else to startle him for a while, and set the bottle beside his chair. He nodded soon and was back to sleep. Huskins had a telegraph sent up the railroad line to Bronson, the county seat. A deputy named Simes was dispatched from the courthouse to Cedar Key on the 5:30 train. is time the cry from the river swamp was louder. A startled Clegg woke and sat up wide-eyed, uncertain if hed actually heard the pained cry of a woman or not. Molly Garth lay motionless in the eerie moonlight creeping into the room. Clegg stood and worked his way round the table where she lay until he found his Navy pistol in the ap of an old sea bag by the bed. ats where Clegg sat then to maintain a constant watch on the unhinged window mere feet beyond the statuesque silhouette of Molly Garth in repose. Deputy Simes in a black slouch hat stepped from the train at precisely 5:30 a.m. Huskins was waiting there in the steamy exhaust of the engine to meet him, and was quick to tell Cleggs version of an accidental death. He told as frantically as he could that Jack Clegg was d istraught to the point of madness at the loss of his lover, his daring, seafaring companion. Simes agreed to wake the Garth brothers at their apartments over the store in town. Newspapers tossed to the platform in a wired bundle from the train carried the date of June 23, 1932 beneath a banner headline proclaiming Prohibitions imminent demise. is time the scream Clegg heard was deafening! It was at the window, as startling as if the tortuous sound had issued from Molly Garths own dark lips. Suddenly something large and dark, quicker than the shadow of a night bird appeared in the window. Clegg jerked himself up from the cargo net mattress of the bed. e jug shattered over the oor. He red blindly with a trembling hand. In that same instant the looming shadow was upon Molly Garth in a great leap and Clegg red again to see in the pistols ash a panthers wild eyes. e cruel darkness returned instantly, deeper and more densely than before. e panther was the darkness as much as the darkness was she. Clegg red twice more into the screaming swarm, then felt his face ignite with a ameless re that rocked him back, the scratching and clawing so erce that the table overturned. Clegg red again toward the oor while an excruciating pain gripped his heart and throat bringing him down. e erce darkness churned as if it were a tornado whirling about, disappearing in his head like black water down a deep drain. en there was nothing nothing at all. While the rosy ngers of dawn extended out over the quiet Gulf, Deputy Simes had the Garth brothers at the landing where Huskins waited. Hed fueled his boat and they shoved o as work all along the wharf started clinking and clanking into the morning. In the full light of day, they were entering the mouth of the Suwannee through the East pass. Some miles up the cabin cruiser rolled at its moorings as Huskins drew alongside. One of the Garth brothers leaped to the bank to tie o the boat where the exposed root of a cypress knee made a natural cleat. Up the bank the men followed Huskins on the leafy path to the cabins door. Huskins called out as he came, Jack! Jack Clegg, were acomin in now. Me and Deputy Simes. Mollys brothers, too, they come fer her now, Jack! Its time! No sound emerged from the cabin, no mournful moaning or sobbing that Huskins fully expected Clegg to persuasively perform. So Huskins braced his shoulder against the heavy door and it lay back with a low screech upon its rusty hinges. Instantly he gasped and attened his back to the door. Simes peered in after him as the Garth brothers stood behind. Just beyond the rum runners outstretched hand in the shaft of light from the door lay Cleggs revolver. Over him lay Molly Garth, bloodied where a bullet had exited her back. Her splayed ngers were red with blood. Cleggs face was gouged and swollen, a gory spectacle that made even the Garth brothers shriek. Most conspicuous was his mauled and mangled left ear, the lobe of which remained between Molly Garths clinched teeth.

Unfortunately, because of not giving much thought (and probably getting senile since I am not young), I placed my wallet on the back of my car while pumping the gas into my little gas can. en, of course, drove o without another thought until later in the day when I realized what I must have done with my wallet. us, I spent Mothers Day thinking my adult sons should just put me away because my mind was going and stupidity was taking over. Later in the afternoon, I received a call from a gentleman that explained that he and his lovely wife were going to a Mothers Day Celebration at the old KOA Campground and discovered my wallet laying on CR 349 and wanted to let me know they had retrieved it. Even though I was missing my family on Mothers Day, I could not have received a better gift than having my faith renewed and con rmed in people and their goodness during there trying times. ank you Mark.

The Levy County Journal4AMay 17, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 A Censored Race War? Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateWhen two white newspaper reporters for the VirginianPilot were driving through Norfolk, and were set upon and beaten by a mob of young blacks -beaten so badly that they had to take a week o from work -that might seem to have been news that should have been reported, at least by their own newspaper. But it wasnt. e OReilly Factor on Fox News Channel was the rst major television program to report this incident. Yet this story is not just a Norfolk story, either in what happened or in how the media and the authorities have tried to sweep it under the rug. Similar episodes of unprovoked violence by young black gangs against white people chosen at random on beaches, in shopping malls or in other public places have occurred in Philadelphia, New York, Denver, Chicago, Cleveland, Washington, Los Angeles and other places across the country. Both the authorities and the media tend to try to sweep these episodes under the rug as well. In Milwaukee, for example, an attack on whites at a public park a few years ago left many of the victims battered to the ground and bloody. But, when the police arrived on the scene, it became clear that the authorities wanted to keep this quiet. One 22-year-old woman, who had been robbed of her cell phone and debit card, and had blood streaming down her face said: About 20 of us stayed to give statements and make sure everyone was accounted for. e police wouldnt listen to us, they wouldnt take our names or statements. ey told us to leave. It was completely infuriating. e police chief seemed determined to head o any suggestion that this was a racially motivated attack by saying that crime is colorblind. Other o cials elsewhere have said similar things. A wave of such attacks in Chicago were reported, but not the race of the attackers or victims. Media outlets that do not report the race of people committing crimes nevertheless report racial disparities in imprisonment and write heated editorials blaming the criminal justice system. What the authorities and the media seem determined to suppress is that the hoodlum elements in many ghettoes launch coordinated attacks on whites in public places. If there is anything worse than a one-sided race war, it is a two-sided race war, especially when one of the races outnumbers the other several times over. It may be understandable that some people want to head o such a catastrophe, either by not reporting the attacks in this race war, or not identifying the race of those attacking, or by insisting that the attacks were not racially motivated -even when the attackers themselves voice anti-white invective as they laugh at their bleeding victims. Trying to keep the lid on is understandable. But a lot of pressure can build up under that lid. If and when that pressure leads to an explosion of white backlash, things could be a lot worse than if the truth had come out earlier, and steps taken by both black and white leaders to deal with the hoodlums and with those who in ame the hoodlums. ese latter would include not only race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson but also lesser known people in the media, in educational institutions and elsewhere who hype grievances and make all the problems of blacks the fault of whites. Some of these people may think that they are doing a favor to blacks. But it is no favor to anyone who lags behind to turn their energies from the task of improving and advancing themselves to the task of lashing out at others. ese others extend beyond whites. Asian American school children in New York and Philadelphia have for years been beaten up by their black classmates. But people in the mainstream media who go ballistic if some kid says something unkind on the Internet about a homosexual classmate nevertheless hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil when Asian American youngsters are beaten up by their black classmates. ose who automatically say that the social pathology of the ghetto is due to poverty, discrimination and the like cannot explain why such pathology was far less prevalent in the 1950s, when poverty and discrimination were worse. But there were not nearly as many grievance mongers and race hustlers then. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMScytl: Voter Fraud Facts and Fiction OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateWith six months until Election Day, conspiracy theories are percolating on the Internet like bubbling mud pots at Yellowstone: Left-wing billionaire George Soros is going to rig the election for Barack Obama. Foreigners will oversee the nations entire vote-counting system. e x is in, and all is lost. Before conservatives go all Michael Mooremoonbatty, lets calm down and separate voter fraud facts from ction. eres no time to waste worrying about manufactured scares. And there are plenty of legitimate threats to electoral integrity without having to in ate or concoct them. FACT: Scytl is a Spain-based business that specializes in electoral security technology and electronic voting applications. Its cryptographic research initially was funded by the Spanish governments Ministry of Science and Technology and later was spun o as a private-sector e-voting venture. FACT: In January 2012, Scytl acquired U.S.-based SOE Software. SOE writes election management programs that assist o cials with everything from Internet voting to election night reporting and online poll worker training. FICTION: According to alarmists, Scytls acquisition of SOE amounts to a complete takeover of Americas election system. No, not really. While SOE boasts of a presence with 900 jurisdictions as customers in 26 states, there is no single contract that the federal government has entered into, or could, with Scytl to count the 2012 presidential election votes. Much of the work Scytl/SOE analysts do is number-crunching and graphics software work (SET ITAL) after (END ITAL) local and state o cials have done the vote-counting. Scytl does have a contract with the feds to use its technology to help overseas and military voters participate in elections. In 2009, the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act mandated that U.S. jurisdictions allow uniformed and overseas citizens to receive and track their ballots electronically. Scytls online ballot program was used in 14 states during the 2010 midterms. FACT: e security risks of e-voting are still a legitimate concern. University of California at Berkeley computer science professor David Wagner wrote a critical report for the Pentagon about the privacy and accuracy shortcomings of Scytls military voting program in 2004 -which prompted the feds to cancel the initial program, according to PBS. In October 2010, the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics encouraged outside parties to try to nd security holes in their online balloting infrastructure operated by Scytl. A group of University of Michigan students successfully hacked into the system, commandeered passwords, doctored ballots and programmed audio of the schools ght song to play whenever an e-ballot was submitted. Hackers from Iran and China also came close to breaking in. After the hack, according to AOLNews.com, (D.C.) administrators decided to relaunch under a download-only format, allowing users to access ballots but forcing them to fax or mail them rather than cast a vote online. e D.C. o cial who oversaw the system, Paul Stenbjorn, now works for Scytl. FICTION: Chain e-mails about Scytl claim that George Soros owns, operates or controls Scytl. In reality, the companys investors are Nauta Capital, Balderton Capital and Spinnaker SCR. Soros doesnt own any of these international venture capital rms -and as far as my research shows, he has no involvement whatsoever with any of them. Moreover, Scytls board of directors doesnt include anyone with Soros nancial or management ties. Pressed for evidence, one Internet conspiracy nut cited an invitation only event in Moldova that listed both the Soros Foundation Moldova and Scytl as attendees. Soros has enough explicit ties to President Obamas administration and campaign without having to embellish them. Just this week, e New York Times reported that he will donate $1 million each to a Democratic super-PAC and a leading progressive get-out-the-vote (GOTV) operation. Soros previously funded Project Vote, the notorious voter-mobilization arm of fraud-perpetrating ACORN for whom Obama canvassed in Illinois. And that brings us to the less exotic, but far more routine, kind of election insecurity that plagues the country. Hardware and software will never be completely fail-safe, no matter where it originates. But its the people, personnel and voter registration and veri cation rules in place right here at home that matter most. FACT: Over the past ve months, investigative journalist James OKeefe and his Project Veritas team have exposed systemic lapses at precincts in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Vermont and Washington, D.C. e ballots of famous public gures have been forked over to complete strangers; disenfranchisement of legitimate voters is routine. While Minnesota and New Hampshire legislators have passed new voter integrity/identi cation laws, OKeefe now has been targeted for investigation and possible prosecution for blowing the whistle. And Attorney General Eric Holder is striking his usual see-no-evil, shoot-the-messenger, playthe-race-card pose. e solution isnt to sit back and bemoan a fantastical global conspiracy. e solution is to get o the couch, support election integrity activists like OKeefe, and turn out in force on Election Day to eject Obamas voter fraud coddlers. Like the old saying goes: If it aint close, they cant cheat. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & Cronies (Regnery 2010).

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Letter to the Editor Did this article via the Associated Press published in some newspapers around the state really surprise anyone? Maybe, but the important detail according to the article, is the State of Florida performed an initial comparison of a list of registered voters against their (required) drivers license information which resulted in nearly 182,000 that are not U. S. citizens. As alarming as the number of noncitizen/ unauthorized voting possibilities, is the states quote; e Department of State is asking county election o cials to verify the information. e Florida Department of State which oversees voting laws and county Supervisors of Elections is asking them to verify instead of requiring them to do so. If the state can cross reference the list to determine the correct information it should do so and provide that information for the counties to implement. Regardless of party a liation, every legal Florida voter should be concerned and ask their Supervisor of Elections to follow through for error free voter registration. Hopefully you want a legal citizen voting on representatives and on issues that a ect us and our Florida families. Glen Wilson, Williston Thousands of Florida voters not U.S. Citizens?Dear EditorIt is reported that our Country, the United States of America is deep in debt. It seems our elected governmental o cials including the President have had to borrow money to pay for the things our leaders believe are necessary. I mean actually borrow money above all the taxes which are collected from those of us who pay taxes. During the eight years of President Bushs term the debt increased by four trillion dollars. at 4 trillion is more debt incurred than all the Presidents that borrowed money from George Washington to Bushs term added together. at is mind boggling. In the three and one half years that President Barack Obama has been in o ce, the Government has borrowed four and one half trillion and at the present rate of spending it will become more than ve trillion by December 2012. During the rst two years of Obamas Presidency the Democrats controlled both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Upon the Mid Term Election the Democrats lost control of the House and maintained control of the Senate. e Republican controlled House has tried three times to pass a budget to control spending and each time the Senate under Harry Reid has prevented it from coming to a vote in the Senate. President Bushs spending in eight years was unprecedented without a doubt. But President Obama and Congress have spent more in three and one half years and at present the spending continues. How much is a trillion dollars? Most of us are comfortable with normal working wages. Lets say a man or woman makes $500 a week; that is $2,000 in a month. at is not a lot of money but it is more than many workers in Levy County. In reality, cars and houses cost in the thousands and to make a million is impossible for most of us. So what does a trillion mean?To make a million dollars you have to make one thousand dollars one thousand times. at is:$1,000 X $1,000 = $1,000,000 or a million bucks. To make a billion you have to multiply 1,000 times a million, that is $1,000 X $1,000,000 = $1,000,000,000 a billion bucks. Every year our Government under the direction of our President gives billions away to many countries that dont like us hoping to make them like us. Is that nuts or what? One Trillion dollars takes 1,000 X a Billion. 1,000 X $1,000,000,000 = $1,000,000,000,000 President Obama has borrowed nearly 5 trillion dollars and we as a country cant even a ord the interest payments. Are you better o now since President Obama has come into o ce? Do you have a good job? Is your home paid o ? Every one of us knows people out of work. We are told over and over that it is President Bushs fault. Is it? Obama has devastated us nancially. Spending must be controlled. Who will do it?

Delinquent Tax Information All unpaid real estate taxes become delinquent on April 1 each year. a 3% penalty is added to the taxes. In May of every year the delinquent taxes are advertised in the local newspaper once a week for three (3) consecutive weeks before a tax certi cate sale is held following the payment deadline; e advertising cost is added to the amount of the tax bill due. On or before June 1, the Tax Collector is required by law to hold a tax certi cate sale. (see tax certi cate sale at bottom for more info). e certi cates represent a lien on all unpaid real estate properties. e sale allows anyone to buy a certi cate by paying o the owed tax debt. e sale is conducted in reverse auction style with participants bidding downward on interest rates starting at 18%. e certi cate is then awarded to the lowest bidder. Tax Certi cates A Tax Certi cate is a lien on property created by payment of the delinquent taxes due. It is not a purchase of property. Florida Statutes require the Tax Collector to conduct a sale of tax certi cates beginning on or before June 1 for the preceding year of delinquent real estate taxes; Prior to the Tax Certi cate Sale, the Tax Collector must advertise the delinquent taxes for three (3) consecutive weeks in a local newspaper of GENERAL CIRCULATION e amount of the certi cate is the sum of the unpaid real estate taxes and the non ad valorem assessments, including 3% penalty, 5% Tax Collectors commission, and advertising costs. Certi cate bidding begins at an 18% interest rate and is bid down until the certi cate is sold to the lowest bidder. Interest is paid at the rate of the winning bid. When a tax certi cate is redeemed and the Interest earned on the face amount is less than 5%, a mandatory charge of 5% Interest is due. Tax Certi cates on land which has been granted a homestead exemption for the year in which the delinquent taxes were assessed and which have a face value of less than $100 shall not be sold to the public at a tax certi cate sale. ese certi cates shall be issued to the county and shall bear Interest at 18% Interest per year. Once the face value and accrued Interest exceed $100, the certi cate may be sold to an individual. e 5% minimum mandatory charge does not apply when a certi cate is purchased from the county. Tax Certi cates are dated as of the rst day of the tax certi cate sale and expire after seven (7) years. Any tax certi cate can be cancelled or reduced if errors, omissions, or double assessments are made. A listing of certi cates purchased are provided to each buyer. All Tax Certi cates must be redeemed by certi ed funds in US dollars. Failure by the property owner to redeem the certi cate with the twenty-two (22) month period prescribed by law can result in the loss of the property at a Tax Deed Sale.

If you want a commission member that you can feel comfortable speaking to, and who will listen to your concerns, Darryl Diamond wants your support. My website will be there for you to get information and to give your input as much as the law allows. If an essential needs item such as police, re or even a hospital comes up, I would carefully consider that need and address it. Now more than ever, voters want a commissioner with credentials that also has a track record of being involved. After close to 12 years of county involvement, everyone in Bronson already knows Mr. Diamond for a period of years, which will allow him to hit the ground running immediately. Mr. Diamond is the only one with over 8 years experience with land use issues on both sides of the podium, both with the Town Of Inglis on the town level, as well as land issues on the county level.. If you want a commissioner that has the energy to do all of the above with passion, consideration, integrity, and a positive attitude Darryl Diamond wants your support. Mr. Diamond worked his way through college earning a A.S. and a B.A. in Psychology. His education and business back round has given him a unique ability to be able to put himself in the position of the people he deals with. is means that I will put my constituents needs at the top of my list. is election please review credentials before you vote, and make sure you vote for the person that has the best chance to put this county back on track for prosperity. ank you for reading my brief bio, and remember to exercise your right to vote the primary August 14th.South Levy Resident Darryl Diamond Running for District #3 Commission Seat e Log Cabin Quilters met ursday, May 10th at the Levy County Quilt Museum. A lot of the members were away with doctor visits, vacations and whatever. Were hoping everyone will be back with us next week. Gregg and six boys were out and boy did they get a lot of work done. e porch looks terri c after they cleaned and got rid of some of the old spools that were beginning to show their age. anks Lancaster. e few members that were out ursday quickly became busy getting ready for our Open House on the 19th. Winnelles Corner is almost nished. Weve identi ed the old sewing machines and printed out information about them for others to read. One of the treadle machines was made before 1890. What a huge di erence between that machine and todays machines that sew or embroider at the touch of a button. Ive done both and I know touching a button to start or stop a machine is so much nicer. Were hoping to get new cushions made for the chairs and benches on the front porch before the 19th. Some of the members donated the fabric and will be out during the week to work on the cushions. Others will be working on new wall decorations for the outside of the building. Were hoping to see a lot of you on the 19th to check out the new look. Ladies of the Log Cabin Quilters nished hand quilting this quilt last week. Alice Mae completed the hemming and other stitch work that needed to be done.Log Cabin Quilters Ten Tri County residents graduated from Lake City's Florida Gateway College RN program on May 4, 2012.

A Big Thank YouThe Chie and FFA Alumni, along with both of our FFA Chapters, would like to give a BIG Thank You to everyone for their support in our most recent fundraiser, our Annual Bull Bash, making it a huge success.Former Williston Graduates Portraits of Success By Timothy King, Senior at BHSBronson Middle High School has had dark skies overlooking a few of their athletic programs for the past few years. Namely, the Varsity boys football and basketball teams. Both boy sports have had dismal losing seasons this past school year, the football team itself nishing with a 0-10 record. Hope may be shining through these clouds, however, with the new enlistment of varsity coaches Cameron Porch and Robert Ebert. Coach Porch has had an impressive coaching career being the assistant coach for Interlachen High school for ve years, from which he graduated, the Santa Fe High School o ensive and special teams coordinator for one year and the Gainesville High School linebacker coach for one year. Porch is now the head coach for Bronson where he nds the program encouraging. I was pretty surprised when I rst started for our Spring season despite the grave warnings Ive heard before starting, says Porch, e team has already been exceeding my expectations. Coach Porch described his outlook as able to fully compete in the Spring game against Chie and the 25th of May. My main goal is to look the part and move these boys in the right direction by diverting them away from the losing mentality that theyve known. Helping Porch as the receiver coach is Robert Ebert who is now also the new head coach for the varsity basketball team. Ebert started his coaching career as the head coach for the varsity girls basketball team at St. Francis, then moved on as the assistant coach at Emory University in Atlanta, Ga. After serving for one year as the Williston assistant coach, Ebert found his way to Bronson to bring the team back to its old glory as a basketball school. After having a basketball meeting during school to meet his players Ebert states, We de nitely have size but I dont have full knowledge on their skills. e main thing they will need to learn is how to win. Whether these coaches will change the programs is yet to be seen but Bronson has been in need of change for a while and it seems that this change will be for the better.

Slinging my ri e over my shoulder, I checked my compass headings and began my return trek. Back at the truck there was no sign of my hunting partner Joe, but I ipped the tailgate down and started gnawing on my baloney sandwich anyway. Hed understand. We were just teenagers. We didnt waste much time on trivial things like manners in those days. Besides, who knew when Joe would come trudging in? Hed better hurry, I thought, eyeing his lunch sack. My morning had been just another in a long line of disappointing trips to these over-crowded government woods. It was hard hunting; and dangerous too. Weekend warriors from the city had tromped under my stand all morning, and only one of them was wearing hunter orange. Two were hunting with military style assault ri es! Im surprised they didnt have hand grenades hanging from their vest. No wonder the deer had all headed for the hills. It just wasnt safe out here anymore. Little Joe, as he was known, soon came slipping up the logging road. (We called him Little Joe mostly because he was little, and his name was Joe, and was the spitting image of a young Michael Landon.) Other than that, Im not sure where we got it. Anyway, thankfully I spotted him just before he caught me sni ng around on his lunch sack. You see anything, I asked. Little Joe angrily un-shouldered his ri e and hu ed, Nah! But I jumped one over some lucky doofus down near the creek. Oddly, he snickered before adding, Hes hauling it in now. Not long after, a big ole goofy corn fed looking fellow came around the bend. He was dragging a most unfortunate little deer by the horns. I hopped down and walked over to see. I even o ered him a hand hauling it the last few yards. It was a good thing. e big guy looked close to cardiac arrest. It was nearly a full minute before he was able to get his breath back enough to rehearse the story of his kill, and boy was he excited. He went on and on. It mustve been his rst deer. He was all smiles. Impressive, considering the fact little Joe mustve walked right past him a few hundred yards back down the trail without o ering to help. I was making a mental note to work with little Joe on his manners when he hopped down o the truck, wiped the mustard o his nose, and swaggered over to that big ox like he was just looking for trouble. Eyeballing the little four point deer skeptically, little Joe scrunched up his nose like he smelt a skunk, and looked straight up into the eyes of that big galoot. With a completely contemptuous sneer he ripped, I wouldnt even kilt that little ole deer. For a moment I thought Hoss might just squash little Joe, but I guess he was too tuckered. Instead, he just stood there looking stupid. Little Joe, who, by the way, had never killed a deer, nally shook his head smugly and walked back to snatch the rest of his sandwich o my lips. Boy, little Joe was on a roll that day. But Anywayis whole Bonanza hunting episode sort of reminds me of how I used to let the devil run some little ole four point sin past me until Id nally pull the trigger. Naturally, once Id committed, that snake wouldnt lift a nger to help me haul in the carcass either. Instead hed be the rst to jump up in my face with a contemptuous sneer after Id tuckered myself out. Boy was I a big doofus for listening to him! Well, no longer. Even big doofuses learn to change the channel on the devils sad old re-runs. I dont listen to that liar anymore! Ive given my heart to Jesus now. (Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame. 1 Corinthians 15:33-34 KJV). All this Cartwright talk just sort of registers with me I reckon, being a former son of Adam and all. Clearly, the moral of this episode is to take your lines from the Good Book. Accept the role youre o ered as a faithful son or daughter, and stay real close to Pa. Be content with our own sandwiches because one day we might all hitch our horses up together in that big Ponderosa in the sky.-Guy She eld You can visit Guy She eld at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at Guy.she firstname.lastname@example.org.
