Patrick Shawn McLaughlin, 45, was tracked down last night in Columbia County with the collaborative e ort of our own Levy County Sheri s O ce, the US Marshals Service, Alachua County Sheri s O ce and the Columbia County Sheri s O ce. e Task Force developed due to McLaughlins known history of violence and resisting arrest. Last week, McLaughlin and Aaron Miller, 31, had gone to a home in Bronson on NE 86 Street to collect money they claimed was owed to them. e homeowners knew the pair but were not expecting the 11:30 p.m. night call to collect the money. A ght ensued between McLaughlin and the husband which drew in the wife who threatened to call 911. McLaughlin grabbed the cell phones and then the wife by the neck. Miller ran o with the husbands wallet and McLaughlin soon joined him. Miller was arrested a short time later on Forest Lane in Bronson but McLaughlin has been on the run. According to Lt. Scott Tummond of the LCSO, McLaughlin thought he could pull up stakes and move to avoid capture for his crimes. He was wrong. e long arm of the law and always-vigilant law o cers of Florida are watching. Deputies from Columbia County, Levy County, Alachua County, and US Marshals Service developed information on McLaughlins friends in Suwannee and Columbia counties and initiated surveillances which led to locating McLaughlin as he was trying to enjoy a quiet dinner at the Barnyard Junction Restaurant located at 7629 Hwy 27 in Fort White. Lt. Tummond said, Dinner interrupted and breakfast guaranteed courtesy of Columbia County Detention Facility. McLaughlin was arrested for the outstanding warrant issued by a Levy County Judge from the information submitted by LCSO Deputy Matt King. Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll, a member of the Task Force, said, It was good to get a violent guy like McLaughlin into custody. He will now be extradited back to Levy County where he will face the charges he tried to avoid. information provided by Lt. Scott Tummond, LCSO and Deputy US Marshal Bryon Carroll.Law Enforcement Collaboration Captured Bronson Home Invasion Fugitive To all our families, spouses and children in the Tri County area, we stand with you in your loss and thank you for our freedom. May you be blessed knowing that your loved ones contribution to America was great and irreplaceable in the history of this great land. e Sta of the Levy County Journal Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. ere are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. ere is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet carried the dedication "To e Ladies of the South who are Decorating the Graves of the Confederate Dead" (Source: Duke University's Historic American Sheet Music, 1850-1920). While Waterloo, New York, was o cially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966, it's di cult to prove conclusively the origins of the day. It is more likely that it had many separate beginnings. Each of those towns and every planned or spontaneous gathering of people to honor the war dead in the 1860s tapped into the general human need to honor our dead, each contributed honorably to the growing movement that culminated in Gen Logan giving his o cial proclamation in 1868. It is not important who was the very rst, what is important is that Memorial Day was established. Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all. Memorial Day was o cially proclaimed on May 5, 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11, and was rst observed on May 30, 1868, when owers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. e rst state to o cially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890 it was recognized by all of the northern states. e South refused to acknowledge the day, honoring their dead on separate days until after World War I (when the holiday changed from honoring just those who died ghting in the Civil War to honoring Americans who died ghting in any war). It is now celebrated in almost every State on the last Monday in May (passed by Congress with the National Holiday Act of 1971 (P.L. 90 363) to ensure a three day weekend for Federal holidays), though several southern states have an additional separate day for honoring the Confederate war dead: January 19 in Texas, April 26 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi; May 10 in South Carolina; and June 3 (Je erson Davis' birthday) in Louisiana and Tennessee. In 1915, inspired by the poem "In Flanders Fields," Moina Michael replied with her own poem: We cherish too, the Poppy red at grows on elds where valor led, It seems to signal to the skies at blood of heroes never dies.

By Kathy HilliardEditor According to the latest press release from the Suwannee River Water Management District, Reclaimed water has been increasingly used over the last several years to o set groundwater withdrawals within the Suwannee River Water Management District (District). Now, it will be used to recharge the aquifer and improve lake levels at White Lake at Camp Weed and Cerveny Conference in Live Oak. Camp Weed has been a popular spot for summer camps, weddings, conferences, shing tournaments, canoeing, kayaking, raft racing, and other water activities, all built around the lake. But Camp Weeds Executive Director Joe Chamberlain said the portion of the lake on the Camp Weed property has been dry for more than three years. Now, thanks to the e orts of the SRWMD, Camp Weed will receive up to 450,000 gallons of reclaimed water per day from the City of Live Oak. According to the SRWMD, at water will be deposited into a percolation pond. From there, the water will naturally seep into the ground and recharge the aquifer. Note again the words of the SRWMD the reclaimed water will naturally seep into the ground and recharge the aquifer. is is exactly the same thing that happens when the farmers water the land for their crops from the pivots on their property. e part of that water that does not evaporate or get used by the crops that feed people seeps into the ground and recharges that aquifer. Got two birds with one stone this way feed the people, recharge the aquifer.SRWMD Says Reclaimed Water Will Recharge Aquifercontinued on page 3 e Levy County Board of County Commissioners met Tuesday, May 22 in the commissioners meeting room in Bronson. e topics of discussion were: Crime Stoppers of Levy County Request for approval to remain serving as a group within and for the citizens of Levy County was approved.

James Bond of the Williston Police Department. e warrant was issued for charges of Scheming to Defraud. Sgt. Bond was investigating Riley on several charges, 27 of those were for Forgery, 27 for Uttering Forged Instrument, 27 for Criminal Use of Personal Identi cation Information and 27 for Petit eft. Further investigation revealed that Riley was at a disabled Vets residence located in Gainesville. During that time Riley stole several of the victims personal checks and started cashing them at a location in Williston. Riley is no stranger to the criminal justice system. From 1984 to the present, Rileys past history shows she has been arrested 103 times. Of those arress, 56 were felony charges, 11 misdemeanor charges and 36 unknown level charges ranging from felony theft, drugs and forgery. Further charges are pending on Riley in Alachua County On May 18, 2012 around 6 p.m. a man approached a WPD O cer in the parking lot of the Williston Police Department. e man stated that his girlfriend, Melba Paige Ford Trentwedel Alexander, 21, of Morriston, had just dropped o his daughter for custody exchange but she had no valid drivers license. On further investigation it was found that the drivers license had been suspended for failure to pay child support back in September of 2011. e father of the child stated he had confronted Alexander about this but she stated she doesnt care. On May 20, Alexander again came to drop o the child at the Police Department at which time the Williston PD o cer was alerted and located her at SR 121 and SR 41 as she was driving in her 1999 Chevrolet truck. Alexander admitted receiving the paperwork for non-payment and stated that she had talked with the judge about her situation. Alexander was arrested and taken to the Levy County Jail. On May 19, an O cer of the Williston Police Department noticed a 1999 GMC pickup truck enter the Kangaroo gas station on N. Main Street in Williston. Once on the property, the passengers exited the truck to go into the convenience store. One passenger placed an open can of beer on the ground and left it there as he went into the store. e O cer approached the driver in the vehicle which was still running and requested his license. e driver presented an International drivers license which does not exist and was obviously a fake DL. e driver was placed under arrest for operating a vehicle with no valid DL and transported to the Williston PD for processing and then to the Levy County Jail. Another passenger had a Mexican DL which appeared to be valid and drove the vehicle after this time.Williston Police Department
The Levy County Journal 3AMay 24, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyDiamondbackIn the heavy heat of that summer, corn tassels in shades of yellow and green agged in a eld near Meredith between Bronson and Archer on the old Florida Railroad line. By that summer of 1941, the track had been carted away. e Meredith stop had long since dissolved to briar, but down the line across the corn eld the rust-red gables of a house and barn still stood since the days when the train had whistled past. Leona Hames was the name of the woman who lived there, a widowed woman whose husband, Lawton, had been a clerk at the crate factory back in Bronson. eyd kept a good garden for many years, each working quietly into the summer gloaming when the last light of summer days gilded the cabbages, squash and beans with its golden rays. en one Sunday afternoon, Lawton fell asleep out on the porch swing. He never awoke. Leona insisted that he be buried exactly as he was dressed when hed slumped into his noontime nap that day. She never disturbed another thing of his in the house after that. Yet she never spoke of Lawton again to others, although his coat and winter hat remained on a hook by the door. His pipe could still be found in the ashtray on the marble-topped table beside his favorite reading chair. His modest clothing still hung in the closet upstairs, a better second pair of shoes and boots arranged neatly below. Little had changed around the small farm since Lawtons death except that Leona had become more cantankerous and callous arguing with herself more than the good-natured Lawton had ever allowed. ere had been several hired men who had helped with the gardening after Lawtons death. e rst was a black man named Burgess, a knowledgeable and conscientious gardener. But Burgess had bad sugar. When his eyes began to fail and hed lost several toes to the diabeetus, he went to live with his niece in Newberry. After Burgess was a white man named Boggs who was lazy and unkempt, despite his habit of wearing too much Lucky Tiger aftershave (whether hed shaved or not). Boggs was also bad about the ask he kept in his boot, and Leona Hames wouldnt abide that. en one day a drifter came up the lane with a tote hung over the shoulder of the faded suit coat he wore over blue jeans and a chambray shirt buttoned at the neck. His name was Suggs, he said. Leona Hames didnt like the mans name. She didnt like his looks, either his eyes too close together in a face that seemed disproportionally full in the jowls and across the brow, while presenting neither a prominent chin nor forehead. Grasping her hoe tightly, Leona asked him his business from across the squash plants. Suggs rested the tote beside his prison-issue brogans and said hed preciate a days work. Maybe two. Leona dgeted with the snap at the color of her cotton print dress. She asked what he knew about gardening as she tapped a dirt clod from the toe of her sandy lace-up shoe. Suggs said he knew plenty and exposed the palms of his hands calloused from work, his forearms burnished by the sun. He didnt say that most of the labor hed done was with a sling blade on a chain gang out from Lakeland, but that was the truth of it. Without quite thinking, something came quickly to Leona, welling up suddenly from her subconscious mind where shed been suppressing a certain fearfulness. She asked Suggs in that instant if he could catch or kill a snake. For days now Leona had come to the garden and found the meandering track of a large snake, certainly a rattler slithering heavily over the raked ground. e rattler, she suspected, would coil in the leafy beanstalks to strike through the lattices made of cypress tripods bound with wire ri s. ere, or else among the tomato stakes where small birds or eld mice also came in the morning to peck or gnaw. Before suppressing the thought, she imagined the limply-coiled snake extracting droplets of dew with his icking tongue from the plant leaves. en, with uttering birds or the quick-step of rodents approaching his camou age, the coil would ex back to a ridged spring latched at his angular head for a lightening-strike release. is was all a continuous motion in her head, a tightly choreographed, in the blink-of-an-eye dance of death between the great snake and its prey. I dont fear no snakes, Suggs said sharply, snapping Leona back to the moment. e woman told him then what she had seen. She had Suggs follow her back into the garden where he knelt and smoothed his hand over the serpentine track. Suggs smiled softly, almost serenely and said with reverence, Shes a bigun alright. Diamondback fer sure. He walked o toward the tomatoes and then scouted around the cabbages. Leona watched with her hat shading her eyes as Suggs walked back through the okra and held two thick stalks apart calling out, Heres where shes a-livin, ratcher. Leona walked cautiously to where Suggs stood straddling a large gopher tortoise hole. e striations in the sand were evident of the snakes goings and comings. In minutes Suggs had taken her to the dragons gate, the demons lair. Youll kill him? she asked more pleadingly than intended. Oh yes, he said. I know jus what to do. Come daylight Ill put that pretty baby down yonder in a croker sack an put a bow on it fer you.I dont want it in a sack, Leona said sternly. I want its head chopped o and burnt in the pile or She thought to add he could blow its head o with Lawtons old shotgun that she kept against her bed post. But instinctively she didnt mention the gun. ere was a large bush hook in the barn. Her mind darted to that. Alright then, she said hesitantly. You just get him. Take his head o with that bush hook there in the barn. Ill pay you when you get him.How much? Suggs asked, narrowing his eyes, his tone as surly as it was inquisitive. Leona sti ened, Itll be fair for whats done. More than a hobos rations, you can be sure of that. I aint no hobo, lady, Suggs replied sternly. Im a-travelin man. An it just so happens, I been good with snakes since I was a boy in knee britches. Now aint this your lucky day? I should hope so, Leona said sti y. eres a little o ce there in the barn, a cot with a good pillow. Youre welcome to that. Ill bring you supper and a sheet. I dont suppose youll require a blanket in this heat? I dont know, Suggs said. I does tend to get a little cool come night. Fine then, Leona said turning on her heels in the sandy garden. A blanket, too. Suggs went out to the barn and had a look around. He shoved open the door and peered into the little o ce Lawton had made to keep his farm records and items of his own interests and studies. ere was an old desk beside a solitary small window that faced the road. An oak chair and a low book case stood against the wall lled with journals and manuals, most brown, yellow or blue and related to farm equipment and repairs. Against the opposite wall rested the army cot Leona had mentioned and a pillow made of striped ticking. A calendar hung on the wall above the cot advertising McCormick Reapers. e precisely penned notations there ended in October of 35, the last year Lawton Hames was alive. In the house Leona washed her face at the kitchen sink and smoothed back her hair. She was already thinking it was a mistake to keep this man Suggs on. He had an unsettling nature about him, something bitter and spiteful, yet thinly masked by pleasantries until he was crossed. She put on a pot of rice, warmed another one of tomato gravy shed already made and retrieved a small ham from the icebox. She sliced o two pieces and fried them. When Leona Hames came back out to the barn, Suggs was sitting on a bench outside the o ce door trimming a long hickory stick with his pocket knife. Hed lled his jaw with tobacco and gone down to the fence line behind the barn where hed found a sapling with a good fork in its small branches. is is gonna do real good, he said to Leona without looking up. You kin jus put that supper to the bench here. Ill get to it directly. Leona did as the man said. When she bent beside him she could smell the sweet, musky odor of the tobacco dribble Suggs was about to capture with his tongue and spit. She put the dishcloth-covered dinner plate on the bench on top of a sheet, pillowcase and thin blanket. Preciate at, Suggs said as he spat away from her into the cavernous shadow of the barn. ats reeeal nice. (Next week, the conclusion.)

And to make matters worse, there is no cost for this water to them except the regular capitalization costs for a business for property purchase, building and expansion, labor, taxes and permits. ere has been no cost per gallon or tax per gallon charged to them for bringing up one of our most precious commodities, water. Most companies that build a product, or resell a product have to pay for the product and then mark it up to make a pro t. In this area, the water has been pumped up and put in bottles at no cost to them.

Since the government gets its resources from the people, if the people as a whole cannot a ord something, neither can the government. ere is, of course, the perennial fallacy that the government can simply raise taxes on the rich and use that additional revenue to pay for things that most people cannot a ord. What is amazing is the implicit assumption that the rich are all such complete fools that they will do nothing to prevent their money from being taxed away. History shows otherwise. After the Constitution of the United States was amended to permit a federal income tax, in 1916, the number of people reporting taxable incomes of $300,000 a year or more fell from well over a thousand to fewer than three hundred by 1921. Were the rich all getting poorer? Not at all. ey were investing huge sums of money in tax-exempt securities. e amount of money invested in tax-exempt securities was larger than the federal budget, and nearly half as large as the national debt. is was not unique to the United States or to that era. After the British government raised their income tax on the top income earners in 2010, they discovered that they collected less tax revenue than before. Other countries have had similar experiences. Apparently the rich are not all fools, after all. In todays globalized world economy, the rich can simply invest their money in countries where tax rates are lower. So, if you cannot rely on the rich to pick up the slack, what can you rely on? Lies. Nothing is easier for a politician than promising government bene ts that cannot be delivered. Pensions such as Social Security are perfect for this role. e promises that are made are for money to be paid many years from now -and somebody else will be in power then, left with the job of guring out what to say and do when the money runs out and the riots start. ere are all sorts of ways of postponing the day of reckoning. e government can refuse to pay what it costs to get things done. Cutting what doctors are paid for treating Medicare patients is one obvious example. at of course leads some doctors to refuse to take on new Medicare patients. But this process takes time to really make its full impact felt -and elections are held in the short run. is is another growing problem that can be left for someone else to try to cope with in future years. Increasing amounts of paperwork for doctors in welfare states with government-run medical care, and reduced payments to those doctors, in order to stave o the day of bankruptcy, mean that the medical profession is likely to attract fewer of the brightest young people who have other occupations available to them -paying more money and having fewer hassles. But this too is a long-run problem -and elections are still held in the short run. Eventually, all these long-run problems can catch up with the wonderful-sounding lies that are the lifeblood of welfare state politics. But there can be a lot of elections between now and eventually -and those who are good at political lies can win a lot of those elections. As the day of reckoning approaches, there are a number of ways of seeming to overcome the crisis. If the government is running out of money, it can print more money. at does not make the country any richer, but it quietly transfers part of the value of existing money from peoples savings and income to the government, whose newly printed money is worth just as much as the money that people worked for and saved. Printing more money means in ation -and in ation is a quiet lie, by which a government can keep its promises on paper, but with money worth much less than when the promises were made. Is it so surprising voters with unrealistic hopes elect politicians who lie about being able to ful ll those hopes? omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMObamacares PatientDumping, Privacy-Meddling Scheme OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate e stench of Chicago cronyism over the White House just got fouler. Inhale this: A shadowy $10 billion Obamacare agency with zero oversight just awarded rst lady Michelle Obamas pet patient-dumping scheme at the University of Chicago Medical Center a $5.9 million taxpayer-funded grant. It will enable Mrs. Obamas cronies to build a government-sponsored electronic medical record-sharing system. e Chicago program, known as the Urban Health Initiative, is run by one of President Obamas closest gol ng buddies, scandal magnet Eric Whitaker, who has been entangled with Illinois corruption celebrities Rod Blagojevich and Tony Rezko over the past decade. Fun fact: Whitaker recently was named by author Edward Klein as the man who purportedly o ered hate-mongering Rev. Jeremiah Wright $150,000 in hush money during the 2008 campaign. e nearly $6 million grant was announced last week by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation at the Department of Health and Human Services. White House watchdog journalist Keith Ko er notes that some 3,000 applications were received for a share on the $1 billion in 3-year grants available. Only 26 programs were included in the rst batch of awards doled out. e administration grants circumvent any and all congressional deliberation as part of Team Obamas election-year We Cant Wait initiatives. e grant recipients will help ful ll the mandated Obamacare vision of a centralized patient-record database with unprecedented federal oversight. e provision is being challenged in court by the Goldwater Institute for forcing Americans to share with millions of strangers who are not physicians con dential private and personal medical history information they do not wish to share. HHS denies any favoritism, citing a competitive, objective process. But as I rst reported in March, a Congressional Research Service analysis concluded that Obamacares Innovation Center is subject to no administrative or judicial review. e Innovation Center director is, in e ect, a super-czar without any checks or balances on his grant-making decisions, methods or results. I warned two months ago that the Obamacare Innovation Center and its multibillion-dollar slush fund smacked of another pipeline for political payo s and Chicago-style boodle that will result in less patient autonomy, fewer health-care choices, more government intrusion and lower-quality care. e University of Chicago Medical Center grant walks and talks like just such a political payo I have reported extensively on how Mrs. Obama helped engineer the Urban Health Initiatives plan to o oad low-income patients with nonurgent health needs. With consulting help from Obama senior adviser David Axelrods Chicagobased PR rm and the blessing of fellow Chicago pal Valerie Jarrett (who chaired the hospitals board of trustees), Mrs. Obama sold the scheme to outsource low-income care to other facilities as a way to dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents. e program guaranteed free shuttle rides to and from the outside clinics. In truth, it was old-fashioned cost-cutting and favor-trading repackaged by a nonpro t, taxexempt hospital as minority aid. Clearing out the poor freed up room for insured (i.e., more lucrative) patients. e American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) blasted MichelleObamacare, expressing grave concerns that the University of Chicagos policy toward emergency patients is dangerously close to patient dumping. e group concluded that the Urban Health Initiative re ected an e ort to cherry pick wealthy patients over poor. at practice was made illegal by the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) signed by President Ronald Reagan. Bipartisan complaints about impoverished South Side Chicago patients getting the shaft led GOP Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa and Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush of Chicago to challenge the crony hospitals abuse of its nonpro t status and lucrative tax breaks. But the probe went nowhere. And now, Whitaker will have $6 million more to play with when hes not vacationing with Obama or grappling with subpoenas over possible kickback and pay-for-play schemes while he served as a top health o cial under now-jailed Illinois. Gov. Blagojevich. One of the probes involves Whitakers oversight of medical facilities construction projects exploited by nowconvicted real-estate shark Tony Rezko. Anyone who isnt concerned about the privacy implications of this governmentfunded records-sharing network hasnt been paying attention to how Team Obama and its surrogates are digging for dirt on private citizens who donate to GOP campaigns. But I digress. Nothing to see or smell here? Discerning eyes and nostrils beg to di er.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 SRWMD continued from page 3A Bottling plants do provide jobs and pay property taxes which are good for the government of the area. And in this period of unemployment and a recessive economy we cannot discount the value of jobs. And it is said by those interested in keeping the bottling plants alive that the amount pumped up is minor compared to the permits issued for large developments. Another press release this week from SRMWD has reached out to ask people to conserve water because we are at an extremely dry time and there is now consideration of initiating a Phase III Water Shortage Order to require water use restrictions for all users. e White Lake project is a diligent e ort to reuse water that has been recharged by the city, replenish the aquifer with it, and restore the balance of water in the Live Oak area. is is a plan that is necessary for all those living in the area, stakeholders with families and businesses at risk when water is taken from the area to be used elsewhere. But, what would happen if water had to remain in the area it came from, used only by those who live there, on top of it. No bottling and sending out of the area. No pumping to another area of Florida where they could have their own recharge plan on the Atlantic, called a desalination plant. Once the water leaves our area, it is gone. Only rain and recharging-type plans can help. SRWMD said, e District provided the City of Live Oak about $3 million to fund renovations to its wastewater treatment plant to produce reclaimed water. To date the District has assisted Lake City, Live Oak, Monticello, Alachua and Cedar Key. ese projects collectively have the potential to save about 6.7 million gallons of fresh water per day. e SRWMD and the taxpayers of the tri county area are paying for these plans to recharge our aquifers while someone else takes it away to their area or their bottles. ey could develop their own recharging plan near the ocean/gulf and desalinate the water themselves. But that is much more expensive, especially with getting all new permits and building new desal plants. Taking water from here is cheaper for them. But not for the residents of the tri county area. Reminds me of Washington DC-type thinking. Just keep spending, we can print more money. Problem is, we cant make more water and the plan the SRWMD is attempting now does not happen overnight and is costly to everyone in the area. How about leaving the water where it is, in the Tri County area. By the way, we here in Levy County are duly represented by Mr. Tommy Harper of Harper Farms. Last week in researching the issue and as noted in the article, Mr. Harper has a Trenton address but that is a Post O ce deal, his farm operation is all in Levy County. In calling the SRWMD and asking if there were any applications from Levy County, the answer was, ere were no applications from Levy County which is by Post O ce standards the truth but in reality, it is not. Mr. Harper is busy running his farm that is totally in Levy County. In speaking to Mr. Harper he has stated that he will be looking after the interests of the good people of Levy and Gilchrist County. He is our go-to person and has dealt with the SRWMD district for many years. We thank you Mr. Harper.

It resembles the way Windows XP would allow you to view recent les under My Recent Places. When you click on the start button, scroll up and hover over the program of your choice, Windows 7 Jump List will pop up to the right of the program icon, listing about ten of your most recently opened/created documents from which to choose. is list is ever changing as your latest newly created/ opened document showing up there pushes the oldest document o the list. Another new feature is called Pinning which enables you to save a shortcut of your favorite or frequently-used les, folders and web sites where you can reach and open them quickly. To do this, simply click on the start button, scroll up through the start menu and hover your curser over the program of your choice. Your most recent les will appear to the right of the program icon. Move your curser over the item you wish to select, and right click on it. is will display a drop down list, from which you can select Pin to the Jump List. Files that are pinned remain in your frequent item list until you unpin them. You can organize your start menu by using this pinning technique so you can quickly nd programs. Simply follow the previous instructions, but instead of pinning to the Jump List, you would Pin to Start Menu to place programs in an order of your choosing for quick and easy access. Frequently-used programs, and thus your frequently-used les, folders or websites, can be pinned to the taskbar, giving you the ability to open them with a single click of your mouse. To Pin a frequently used program to the Taskbar, go to the start menu, click on it, scroll up to the program icon, right click and select Pin to Taskbar. en, once pinned, you can hover over the program icon in your taskbar to display your most recently opened les or folders (or websites) in the Jumplist which will have opened above the icon. Select the le you wish by simply clicking on it. If you nd yourself with multiple programs open, with each of them having a few windows open, there are two new ways to view those les without manually clicking on them one by one. One way is called Aero Peek. is feature allows you to place your curser on the programs icon in your taskbar and then when it displays the di erent open windows move your curser to that speci c window. at window will enlarge to full screen; all other windows will become translucent. To select that window, simply click on it. However, if you decide that is not what you want, simply move the curser back over the icon on the task bar for all the windows to be displayed again, and make another selection. Another way to view your open windows is by using Aero Flip 3D, which displays your windows in a 3D stack on your desktop. You can easily do this by pressing and holding down the Windows key on your keyboard and then press the Tab key. To start ipping through pages, continue to press and release the Tab key to get to the next window. When the window you want is displayed, then just release both keys. One other very cool Windows 7 feature that not a lot of people know about is the Show Desktop feature. To view your desktop without minimizing or exiting the screens you are working on, simply move your curser to the bottom right corner of your screen (to the right of the date and time). Your screens will become translucent and you will be able to see the desktop and all your saved les, folders and documents, etc., immediately. To go back to your open windows, just move your curser out of the lower right corner of your screen, and your screens become visible again. To access les stored on the desktop, click in the corner to select the desktop to cause the desktop to remain. To release the desktop, simply click in the corner again and the windows previously displayed return. Enjoy playing with these new features, and email us with any questions or comments you may have.

"We are asking more from our students and teachers than we ever have. I believe it is appropriate to expect that our students know how to spell and how to properly punctuate a sentence. Before this year, those basics were not given enough attention, nor did we give enough attention to communicating these basic expectations to our teachers. I support the Board's decision to recalibrate the school grading scale while keeping the writing standards high."

During the rst complete week of May, the sta at Williston Elementary School felt especially appreciated by members of the student body who showed their thanks in many ways during Sta Appreciation Week. ird grade teachers Hillary Cribbs, Lindsey Dubock and Corrie Houghtaling shared some of the acknowledgements they received. My kids know I love junk from time to time, smiled Cribbs, so one student gave me a Pepsi and a Mounds bar. Another gave me roses, and my in-laws even sent me a bouquet of owers! I loved the drinking cup lled with candy, the roses and handmade cards I received, said Dubock. Especially meaningful was a personal message from the father of a current student whose sibling Id taught years before. is dad was a 3rd grader when Miss Lisa [Posteraro] started teaching in the mid-70s! Ill be going to Burger King to eat then to the movies with my popcorn, chuckled Houghtaling, who received gift cards to those places. We loved Races cake pops! ats what 5th grader Race Battle and his mother Dena made for Races teachers: Nancy Bowman, Serena iessen and Lisa Posteraro. ank you for helping quench my thirst for knowledge said a card on the drinking cup Erin Owens received from one of her students. She also liked the air fresheners for her car. Michaela and Everett Warren decided on rather unique gifts of appreciation: baskets containing veggies from their garden squash, zucchini and pole beans. I love the gift of a little Clayworks February bell from the Ivy House designed by Heather Goldminc, said Posteraro. I collect angels, and shell t right in! One can never have enough stationery, exclaimed iessen, and this student also included a pen and yummy snacks with the note paper. One of my students made a sticky note pad holder from a 4 x 6 acrylic picture frame shed decoratedhow creative! said 4th grade teacher Teri Dixon. Students werent the only ones showing their gratitude at WES. Principal Marla Hiers recruited the services of Ocala aesthetician Kelly Noegle, who came and gave 10-minute neck and shoulder massages to the sta Peggy Brooks had set up a nearby table stocked with a dispenser of chilled lemon water and little snacks. ESOL aide Ana Armbrister enjoyed her mini-massage. [ e experience] was very unique, very relaxingthe [set-up in the] room was special, said Armbrister. I just wanted to do something for all our sta something a little di erent, said Hiers. And since this can be a somewhat stressful job, she added, I thought they would appreciate at least 10 minutes to take some deep breaths and really relax. Each day, little notes and small gifts were placed in each sta members mailbox in the front o ce from Hiers and Angel omas, assistant principal. In addition, aide Virginia Craig, well-known for her scrumptious pound cakes, baked four of them to share with her colleagues. Fifth grade teachers Kathy Brewington and Steve Van Zwienen baked chocolate chip and blueberry mu ns to share as well!

I understand it took him nearly a year and a half and two bumper crops to pay that o If my Mimi needed a new Lincoln, Papa went and got a Continental; cash money. If the farm needed a new cotton picker, Papa went down to John Deere with cash money. When it came time to pay his workers, Papa would dig in his britches and whip out a wad of bills thick enough to befuddle Ben Bernanke. No, he wasnt rich. In fact, his folks had been poor immigrants from Italy. Papa was just smart enough to embrace the American way of working hard and staying out of debt. I never gave him much credit for it, at least not until the day he drove up with a brand new yellow three-wheeler in the back of his truck. If Papa had intended it for Farm Use Only hed obviously failed to consider the nerve pounding pressure produced by the overwhelming whining wattage and pleading power of two bored toe-headed boys visiting on a summer break. Yes, within hours my little brother Heath and I had not only talked him out of the keys, but run through his inaugural tank of gas. Naturally we were miles from home when it sputtered to a stop. Something told me we shouldve listened to Papas instructions before peeling out on his foot and tearing o ey were just shy of ling a missing persons report when we nally made it back to the house that night. Papa was hot. He yelled at us all the way back to the three-wheeler. en again, when he realized wed left the lights on and drained the battery. It was a good thing we didnt understand Italian. Over the next few months we stirred up so many turn rows around town our dust clouds were starting to show up on local weather forecast. e townsfolk took to calling us the Dusty Duo. Papa was even considering the police chiefs suggestion about getting us helmets. For us it was great. Wed never experienced such freedom. Other than the occasional bump or bruise su ered during minor altercations over whose turn it was to drive, life couldnt have been going any sweeter. en the rains came. For two days, big fat thunderheads sat upon us and pelted the parched little town. Finally, on the third day, the lightning abated somewhat and the rain slowed to a heavy sprinkle. We headed back out for ole Yeller. Wed been cooped up in that house so long Im not sure who was more excited, us or Papa. Our attention swung immediately to the low swag in the side yard, which was now ankle deep. You could hardly tell Papas best stand of Bermuda was under there. I suggested it would be a good place to carve out a nice little gure eight track and start our own version the mud derbies. It turned out to be great fun, at least until Heath alleged that I was cheating as the o cial time keeper. e proceeding altercation caused tempers to are, and greatly fueled the erceness of our competition. Soon wed whipped that mud up into froth. e rpms were revving right o the gauge. We were slipping and sliding like barefoot boweivels break-dancing in a bowl of buttered boiled okra! I guess we were so wrapped up in winning we didnt even notice how the water sizzled when splashed up on that overtaxed little engine, or how the clouds we were now riding under were not thunderheads at all. ey had a much more oily smell. Yes, we were blissfully, and perhaps, willfully ignorant of all the warning signs. We were still talking trash right up to the point ole Yeller back red and locked up on us. I dont recall a lot of our dialog after that, but Im sure it included the phrase, Uh-oh! Isnt that just the way it is most times? A new generation coming up doesnt take time to consider or appreciate the sacri ces and the struggles their forefathers endured to bring them the freedoms they now enjoy. It sure happened with ole Yeller that day. I just hope it doesnt happen here, with Old Glory. e Lord has blessed us so because of our forefathers determination to establish One Nation under God. I just hate to see us drag it all through the mud now. (Yet they would not listen to their judges but prostituted themselves to other gods and worshiped them. Unlike their fathers, they quickly turned from the way in which their fathers had walked, the way of obedience to the LORDs commands. Judges 2:17 NIV). But anywayneither Heath nor I knew much about praying, but we suddenly felt compelled to learn. We called a truce and fell to our muddy knees together. From there we did what came natural. We begged. We pleaded with God to spare us from the great wrath of Papa! We found the Lord to be most merciful. In nothing short of a miracle, ole Yeller sputtered back to life and ran long enough for us to get her back to the barn. e rains revived and ooded over the muddy mess we had made, at least until we could call momma and have her come take us home! I learned a lot about stewardship that day, and how easy it can be to totally ruin an awesome blessing entrusted to you. I also learned the value of prayer and the power of repentance. Boy, if we could just get a hold of these things as a nation. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she email@example.com.
