See Levy Life By Kathy HilliardEditorBronson Youth League President Joe Markham said he just wants to keep coaching the kids to play ball.Ž According to Markham the stories printed about him in the newspaper in the city of Chie” and are not correct even though he readily admits to being far from perfect. Markham has been involved with the BYL since 2002 when his daughter played ball. He coached for years and then stopped for two years in 2008 until his son wanted to get involved in 2010. e Youth League is a local partnership of volunteers and the Town of Bronson to give the kids a place to play ball and learn all the values, skills and disciplines that competing in sports gives to the youth. It is just the American way to keep the kids busy playing the American sport … baseball. Markham for years has volunteered to coach and also keep the play “ elds in good condition with the Town of Bronson providing the equipment. With the help of the Board of County Commissioners, concession sales and the Town of Bronson, funds have just managed to keep them in equipment and what they absolutely need to play ball. Now the scene appears to be changing including coaches and board members. Markham is the President now working with Mike Hanna, Sherrie Shuler and Je Jordan currently. According to Markham, there is now an idea from current youth league member Charlie Kennedy which passed the Town Council 4-0 to change the process over to a Recreation Department utilizing the services of UF student interns to run the department … for a salary. Currently the coaching and upkeep is a volunteer operation, said Markham. For Markham this means a changing of head personnel on a regular basis as the UF students graduate and go on to bigger and better things. According to Markham there should be a continuity of people with the kids, people the kids trust and see as a part of the community of Bronson. e Bronson Town Councils discussions of the project with those in attendance at their regular meetings sparked input from some that there needs to be more leadership or better leadership. Parents want their say in what is done concerning their children and get involved to do just that. But could that provoke statements like this one from Berlon Weeks that there are too many chiefs but not enough Indians.Ž A few voices from those on the current youth league agree with Markham in one respect … why look for someone outside the community to lead the league. Markham admitted that he has missed some of the Town Council meetings as his wife works a night shift and he takes care of the children then and recently was into the before the FCATŽ studying regime with his son … who passed. Now that the concept of the Youth League is being revamped by some to include more sports and a centralized Rec Center including more rules of order, the old ways of solving problems are frowned on, according to Markham. He gave the example that in the past there was a coach on board whose style bothered some parents who came to Markham for help. According to Markham, they would not let their children play under that coach. e solution to the parents and Markham was to let the coach go. To others, it was to put the coach on probation. According to Markham, probation had been tried in the past and did not work so they let the coach go and had to do double time to “ ll in the space. Other members leaving the league over time also produced the same e ect, extra duty to get things done while new members learned what to do or current members covered more than one job. Now the use of the “ elds by the current Bronson Youth League might be curtailed, according to Markham. He said that now there is a more stringent use of the equipment than had previously been in place. Markham said he just wants the BYL to remain as it was using good ole common sense and volunteers from our own communityŽ rather than all these new ideas and learn to work together. He says now nothing gets done. Other community residents including Town Council members want a bigger and more organized approach with new ideas. But what is best for the kids? And who loses in the end when the con” icts are not decided on … the kids. e ones who bene“ t the most also have the most to lose. ere will be a meeting of the Bronson Youth League on June 5 at 6 p.m. at the Dogan S. Cobb Municipal Building and Markham is asking that all those interested in the kids playing ball to please be there to speak your mind and give your ideas.Chie and Woman's Club Watermelon Pageant Winners By Kathy HilliardEditorWith all the talk lately of someone without a clue on a program on MSNBC remarking that our soldiers should not be so easily called heroes, we have a new couple of heroes right here in a Chie” and RV Park to join the ranks of our men and women in uniform. ey live on a street called Lame Duck Lane which was renamed that way because all the people on that road had medical problems. Last Friday morning 67-year-old Cheryl Philabaum, who lives on the infamous Lane, heard one of her neighbors screaming FIREŽ and went out to investigate. Cheryl saw 42-year-old Jamie Sparks running and screaming that a neighbor next door, Ruth, was in her RV which was engulfed with ” ames. No one was o ering to go along and the custodian of the park has left to run an errand. at left Cheryl and Jaime. Cheryl joined with Jamie and ran into the burning RV and grabbed onto Ruth who is on oxygen and does not walk and pulled her out onto the ramp for her wheelchair. Jamie managed to pull Ruth further on down and away from the ” ames. Cheryl said that Ruth was on “ reŽ and is now at the Shands Burn Unit with burns to her eyes, face, and throat areas and in just stable condition.Apparently when Cheryl was pulling Ruth out she broke her wrist. Jamie and Cheryl both inhaled a lot of smoke and both women were taken by ambulance to North Florida General Hospital for lung treatments. Cheryl says she is going in for pre-op examinations but is not sure yet what they are going to do with her broken and very painful wrist.Cheryl says she is very grateful for all her friends and neighbors who are coming by to help her do such things as open bottles of water. Cheryl is right-handed and that is the wrist that was broken. She says she cant do much with her left hand yet. For years Cheryl has done crocheting and sewing for her daughter Mistys shop, Memories by Misty, in Chie” and and for the family. at will have to be put on hold for awhile as one of the heroes of Lame Duck Lane recuperates. ank you to Cheryl and Jamie for answering a call to help no matter how it might have a ected you.

Last year, 46,605 plants, valued at $139 million, were reported as eradicated from 961 grow sites. As of April 30, 2012, a total of 10,348 plants from 195 grow sites has been reported, 200 arrests have been made, 47 weapons and 2,355 pounds of marijuana have been con“ scated and more than $297,000 in illegal assets has been seized.

Beasley was wanted by the Citrus County Sheri 's O ce (CCSO) on an outstanding failure to appear arrest warrant for 1 count of direct/promote the sexual performance by a child and 33 separate counts of possession of child pornography. Beasley 's charges stemmed from an investigation in January 2010 by the CCSO's Internet Crimes Against Children unit that led to the discovery of thousands of photos and videos in Beasley 's possession that depicted child abuse and hardcore child pornography. e investigation revealed Beasley was a signi“ cant Florida distributor of child pornography on the internet, having distributed child pornography several hundred times in 2010. After being released on bond in early 2010, Beasley failed to appear in court in September 2011 after learning he would be facing over a decade in prison. e CCSO requested assistance from the Gainesville division of the U.S. Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force in October 2011. e Task Force adopted Beasley 's case due to his serious charges and his history of “ rearm possession. During the subsequent fugitive investigation, Task Force investigators determined Beasley had ” ed from Florida and was traveling throughout the southeast United States in a continued attempt to avoid arrest. Beasley took steps to stay under the radar while hiding including taking on a fake name and limiting his contact with other individuals. During the eight-month fugitive investigation, Task Force investigators followed up on leads in Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida. Last week, Task Force investigators developed information that Beasley was currently hiding in Tennessee near Knoxville hiding inside a small house on a mountain in a rural area of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. U.S. Marshals in Tennessee approached and surrounded this house and ordered its occupants to exit. Beasley, who was going by a fake name, exited his bedroom and then the house and was placed under arrest. U.S. Marshals then found a handgun in Beasley's bedroom lying on his bed. Beasley's true identity was con“ rmed and he was booked into the Sevier County Jail pending extradition back to Florida. It's always great to get a child porn fugitive who was armed with a gun o the streets and into jail. A lot of hard work during the past eight months led us to a small house on the side of a mountain in rural Tennessee. Beasley tried very hard to avoid capture but will now face the consequences of his serious charges,Ž said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll, a member of the Task Force. For additional information, please contact Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryon Carroll at 352/672-8065. e Gainesville Division of the Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force is sponsored by the U.S. Marshals Service and comprised of investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service, the Alachua County Sheri 's O ce, the Gainesville Police Department, the Levy County Sheri 's O ce, and the Marion County Sheri 's O ce. e Task Force adopts fugitive investigations from state and local law enforcement agencies when the fugitive is known to be violent.

The Levy County Journal 3AMay 31, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyDiamondbackA Summer’s Tale, Part IIIn the shimmering heat of that summer the widow Leona Hames tended her sprawling garden near Meredith on the old Florida Railroad line. By the early 40s the rails were gone and the stop had long since dissolved to bramble and briar, although vagrants still walked the line. So it happened that a man named Suggs came down the shaded lane by a corn“ eld, across which stood the rust-red gables of a house and barn, the old Hames place. Suggs was a peculiar looking fellow with a full face, virtually devoid of either chin or forehead beneath his dusty slouch hat. He came with a tote hung over the shoulder of the faded suit coat he wore over jeans and a chambray shirt buttoned at the neck, despite the sultry weather. He was a day-worker, a traveling man, he said. He wore prison-issue brogans and said to Leona Hames (who was on guard with her hoe in hand) that hed preciate a days work.Ž Despite her instinct to send Suggs on his way, Leona Hames had a greater fear. For days now the woman had found the meandering track of a large snake in her garden. Shed had Suggs follow her back into the climbing beans and staked tomatoes where he knelt and smoothed his hand over the serpentine track. Suggs smiled softly, almost serenely and said with reverence, Shes a bigun alright. Diamondback fer sure.Ž He walked out toward the tomatoes and then scouted around the cabbages. Leona watched with her hand shading her eyes. Suggs walked back through the okra calling out, Heres where shes a-livin, ratcher.Ž Leona walked cautiously to where Suggs stood straddling a large gopher tortoise hole. e striations in the sand were evident of the snakes goings and comings. In minutes Suggs had taken her to the dragons gate, the demons lair. Youll kill him?Ž she asked more pleadingly than intended. Oh yes,Ž he said. I know jus what to do. Come daylight Ill put that pretty baby down yonder in a croker sack an put a bow on it fer you.Ž I dont want it in a sack,Ž Leona said sternly. I want its head chopped o .Ž She thought to add he could blow its head o with her husbands old shotgun she kept against her bed post. But instinctively she didnt mention the gun. ere was a large bush hook in the barn. Her thoughts went to that. Alright then,Ž she said hesitantly. You just get him. Take his head o with that bush hook there in the barn. Ill pay you when you get him.Ž How much?Ž Suggs asked, narrowing his eyes, his tone as surly as it was inquisitive. Leona sti ened, Itll be fair for whats done. More than a hobos rations, you can be sure of that.Ž I aint no hobo, lady,Ž Suggs replied sternly. Im a travelin man. An it jus so happens, I been good with snakes since I was a boy in knee britches. Now aint this your lucky day?Ž I should hope so,Ž Leona answered sti y. She told him of the little o ce her husband, Lawton, had made in the barn. ere was a cot there, a wash stand and a place to lay his head for the night. In the late of that afternoon, Suggs went out to the barn and had a look around. In the house, Leona washed her face at the kitchen sink. She smoothed back her hair, 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 and made a supper of fried ham and tomato gravy. When Leona Hames came back out to the barn with his food, Suggs was sitting on a bench outside the o ce door. His jaw was “ lled with tobacco and he leaned back while trimming a long, forked hickory stick with his pocket knife.  is is gonna do real good,Ž he said to Leona without looking up. You kin jus put that supper to the bench here. Ill get to it directly.Ž Leona did as Suggs asked. When she bent beside him she could smell the sweet, musky odor of the tobacco dribble he was about to capture with his tongue and spit. She put the dishclothcovered dinner plate on the bench. Preciate at,Ž Suggs said as he spat away from her into the cavernous shadow of the barn. Ats real nice.Ž Leonas thoughts darted to the rattler slithering heavily over the raked ground. She saw him in her minds eye coiled in the leafy beanstalks or staked tomato plants, ready to strike small birds or “ eld mice pecking or gnawing there in the morning. Even as she backed away, an image came to her of the great snake extracting droplets of dew from the plant leaves with his ” icking tongue at daybreak. You have a good night, Miz Hames,Ž Suggs said, startling the older woman from the snakes conjured visage. Yes,Ž she said brusquely. When shed returned to the house, Leona locked and barred the doors, front and back. She ate her own supper solemnly by lamplight at the kitchen table. She was accustomed to eating alone and to all the sounds the house made. Even in her sleep she was accustomed to the usual sounds of mice or moths throughout the household. By the time she was in her bed upstairs, the woman listened only for the sounds that would not be usual. Long after the lamp in the o ce in the barn was extinguished, she lay awake ƒ listening. And then in the cool of the early hours, in something to which she relapsed herself … something not unlike the sensation of sinking away in water so warm she could not tell where her body ended and the water began … she drifted o to sleep. Sunlight through the bedroom window lit her face and Leona Hames awoke with a start. She always got up before dawn, but did not that day and was angry with herself about it. She went immediately to the window in her nightclothes and looked down on the garden. Suggs stood out among the onions wrapping rope around the twisted neck of a heavy burlap sack. As if she had called out to him, Suggs looked up instantly, “ nishing his half-hitch and letting the sack drop to his feet as skillfully as a rodeo cowboy signaling time with his hands raised from the legs of a lassoed calf. His arms fully extended then, Suggs turned slowly about beside the shifting shape of the sack, as if acknowledging the exaltations of a cheering crowd. Leona Hames clutched the neck of her nightgown and backed away from the window. When shed “ nished her toilet and dressed, she went down the narrow stairs to unbar the door and walk straight away from the back porch to Suggs in the garden. She come out jus fore the sun do, like I “ gured,Ž Suggs drawled as the woman walked up with her arms held about herself for warmth. I was a-waitin.Ž Suggs show her the long, forked stick hed used with a noose of heavy twine. Oh, she thought she smelled somethin, but I know shes too fat an sassy to hold up. She got good into my trap an I yanked the “ re out of it.Ž Suggs raised his forked stick. Yessum, I had her pinned behind her neck fore her head hardly hit the ground! She fought like a demon, but I bagged her thar from hind the neck an raked her from wrappin round my arm rat into this here croker sack.Ž Leona couldnt help but feel relief, a welcome reprieve from the frightening uncertainty of knowing the snake was always near, yet never visible. Now it had a shape and form directly in her line of sight, even if that shape shifted about before her now like a sack half-“ lled with large potatoes rolling around. But why, pray Lord, didnt you kill it?Ž she asked anxiously. I get paid extree to kill,Ž Miz Hames. I thought I said that. Didnt I say that, Miz Hames?Ž No.Ž Well I do,Ž Suggs droned. Leona Hames didnt respond, except to wheel about in the garden and start for the house at a rapid clip. She had in mind to pay Suggs and have him kill the snake, and send him on his way immediately. He was no better than the snake hed bagged, she cautioned herself, something she insisted to herself then that shed sensed all along. In a locked box upstairs was a small leather-bound box that had been her husbands. Lawton had collected coins and she spilled both silver and gold ones into the palm of her slender hand. When she had no other cash, Leona sometimes paid her help with a coin or two from the collection, insisting that they held greater than face value. Perhaps they did, but she had no idea how much greater. Be that as it may, the collected coins were, on that day, what she had to pay with. She selected a Liberty Head gold dollar and went back down. Suggs was at the barn with the burlap bag squirming about in front of the gaping door while hed gathered up his tote. He came forward out of the shadows, dusting o his hat. Leona Hames thrust out her hand with the gold piece. Suggs plucked it from her palm and asked, Whats this cher?Ž Good pay,Ž Leona insisted. All considered, you got room and board, and not hardly an hours work. ank you.Ž I dont think so,Ž Suggs replied snidely. Well thats it! Good day, Mr. Suggs,Ž Leona said sharply turning away. And take your friend with you or chop o his head and leave him on the gate for passersby to see. I dont care which.Ž Leona Hames started for the house. You best be o ,Ž she called back over her thin shoulder. Suggs “ red on her immediately. Now you see ear, Miz High and Mighty. I wont be insulted. You heah me? I … wont … be … insulted!Ž When Leona had returned to the house, she shut the kitchen door behind her and put her back to it, bracing herself. Catching her breath was made more di cult by what felt to be her heart in her throat. You wont insult me, woman!Ž Suggs howled again from near the back steps. Leona waited against the door with her hands in her hair for a few minutes more. She felt she would be sick. Half way up the dark stairs she had to sit and sprawl on her side with her head resting against a higher step. In her nausea she could not remember if shed locked the door or not. She was certain she had not barred it. She tried to steady her herself, and then she heard the door open. She was certain of that. Leona Hames sat up straight with her arms locked about her waist. She heard a heavy thud, and then a series of thumps, a whirling and thrashing sound that “ lled the house like a plague of a thousand locusts. en it ceased with another thud and a strange yowl … or was it a laugh falling away from the porch? en it was silent again. Deathly silent. Leona crept back down the stairs and peered around into the kitchen. A broad, leaden shaft of morning light lay across the dark ” oor, sending an electri“ ed chill up her spine. e door was opened and in its frightening gape lay an empty burlap bag with its opened mouth loose on the threshold of her kitchen door.

The Levy County Journal4AMay 31, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 ‘Meaningful Work’ Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateEducationŽ is a word that covers a lot of very di erent things, from vital, life-saving medical skills to frivolous courses to absolutely counterproductive courses that “ ll people with a sense of grievance and entitlement, without giving them either the skills to earn a living or a realistic understanding of the world required for a citizen in a free society. e lack of realism among many highly educated people has been demonstrated in many ways. When I saw signs in Yellowstone National Park warning visitors not to get too close to a bu alo, I realized that this was a warning that no illiterate farmer of a bygone century would have needed. No one would have had to tell him not to mess with a huge animal that literally weighs a ton, and can charge at you at 30 miles an hour. No one would have had to tell that illiterate farmers daughter not to stand by the side of a highway, trying to hitch a ride with strangers, as too many college girls have done, sometimes with results that ranged all the way up to their death. e dangers that a lack of realism can bring to many educated people are completely overshadowed by the dangers to a whole society created by the unrealistic views of the world promoted in many educational institutions. It was painful, for example, to see an internationally renowned scholar say that what lowincome young people needed was meaningful work.Ž But this is a notion common among educated elites, regardless of how counterproductive its consequences may be for society at large, and for low-income youngsters especially. What is meaningful workŽ? e underlying notion seems to be that it is work whose performance is satisfying or enjoyable in itself. But if that is the only kind of work that people should have to do, how is garbage to be collected, bed pans emptied in hospitals or jobs with life-threatening dangers to be performed? Does anyone imagine that “ remen enjoy going into burning homes and buildings to rescue people trapped by the ” ames? at soldiers going into combat think it is fun? In the real world, many things are done simply because they have to be done, not because doing them brings immediate pleasure to those who do them. Some people take justi“ able pride in working to take care of their families, whether or not the work itself is great. Some of our more Utopian intellectuals lament that many people work just for the money.Ž ey do not like a society where A produces what B wants, simply in order that B will produce what A wants, with money being an intermediary device facilitating such exchanges. Some would apparently prefer a society where all-wise elites would decide what each of us needsŽ or deserves.Ž e actual history of societies formed on that principle -histories often stained, or even drenched, in blood -is of little interest to those who mistake wishful thinking for idealism. At the very least, many intellectuals do not want the poor or the young to have to take menialŽ jobs. But people who are paying their own money, as distinguished from the taxpayers money, for someone to do a job are unlikely to part with hard cash unless that job actually needs doing, whether or not that job is called menialŽ by others. People who lack the skills to take on more prestigious jobs can either remain idle and live as parasites on others or take the jobs for which they are currently quali“ ed, and then move up the ladder as they acquire more experience. People who are ” ipping hamburgers at McDonalds on New Years Day are seldom ” ipping hamburgers there when Christmas time comes. ose relatively few statistics that follow actual ” esh-and-blood individuals over time show them moving massively from one income bracket to another over time, starting at the bottom and moving up as they acquire skills and experience. Telling young people that some jobs are menialŽ is a huge disservice to them and to the whole society. Subsidizing them in idleness while they wait for meaningful workŽ is just asking for trouble, both for them and for all those around them. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMObama’s Land of the LOST OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Whats green and blue and grabby all over? President Obamas new pressure campaign for Congress to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). e “ ght over LOST goes back three decades, when it was “ rst rejected by President Ronald Reagan. He warned that no national interest of the United States could justify handing sovereign control of two-thirds of the Earths surface over to the ird World.Ž According to top Reagan o cials William Clark and Ed Meese, their boss believed the central, and abiding, defectŽ was its e ort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states -and most especially the United States.Ž e persistent transnationalists who drafted LOST favor creation of a massive United Nations bureaucracy that would draw ocean boundaries, impose environmental regulations and restrict business on the high seas. eyve tinkered with the document obsessively since the late 60s, enlisted Presidents Clinton and Bush, and recruited soon-to-depart GOP Sen. Dick Lugar to their crusade. Ignore the mushy save-theplanet rhetoric. Heres the bottom line: Crucial national security decisions about our naval and drilling operations would be subject to the vote of 162 other signatories, including Cuba, China and Russia. While our sovereignty would be redistributed around the world, most of the funding for the massive LOST regulatory body would come from -you guessed it! -the United States. Forbes columnist Larry Bell reports that as much as 7 percent of U.S. government revenue that is collected from oil and gas companies operating o our coastŽ would be meted out to poorer, landlocked countries.Ž is con“ scatory act of environmental justice would siphon billions, if not trillions, away from Americans. International royalties would be imposed; an international tribunal would be set up to mediate disputes. ere would be no opportunity for court appeals in the U.S. LOST is just the latest waterlogged power grab by the Obama administration. As I reported in 2010, the White House through executive order seized unprecedented control from states and localities over conservation, economic activity, user con” ict and sustainable use of the ocean, our coasts and the Great Lakes.Ž Obama created a 27-member National Ocean CouncilŽ by administrative “ at that is speci“ cally tasked with implementing ocean management plans in accordance with customary international law, including as re” ected in the Law of the Sea Convention.Ž e panel is chaired by radical green science czar John Holdren (notorious for his cheerful musings about eugenics, mass sterilization and forced abortions to protect Mother Earth, and for hyping weather catastrophes and demographic disasters in the 1970s with his population-control pals Paul and Anne Ehrlich) and White House Council on Environmental Quality head Nancy Sutley (best known as the immediate boss of disgraced green jobs czar/self-avowed communist Van Jones). Other members include Dr. Jane Lubchenco, head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and a former high-ranking o cial at the left-wing Environmental Defense Fund, which has long championed draconian reductions of commercial “ shing ” eets and recreational “ shing activity in favor of centralized control, and fraudster Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who doctored the administrations drilling moratorium report. It is not hyperbole to expose LOSTs socialist roots. Meddling Marxist Elisabeth Mann Borgese, the godmother of the global ocean regulatory scheme, made no bones about it: He who rules the sea,Ž she exulted, rules the land.Ž LOST is a radical giveaway of American sovereignty in the name of environmental protection. And it should be sunk once and for all. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & CroniesŽ (Regnery 2010).

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Major U.S. corporations are signing on to the Sustainability green bandwagon of late. Many now have director level positions in their organizations. e reason: marketing, oh and it sounds good. Its that simple. ey have no clue that they are promoting the abolition of individual property rights. At the same time that business is embracing the sustainability buzz, state and local governments are backing away from the term. Why? Property rights. For example: A bill to bar the state from taking over private property without due process passed the House this morning on a 96-0 vote in Alabama. Senate Bill 477, sponsored by Sen. Gerald Dial, R-Lineville, is intended to shelter Alabamians from the United Nations Agenda 21, a sustainable development initiative seen as a Trojan horse for the creation of a world government. Never heard of United Nations Agenda 21? You have now. Remember, collectivism in its many forms, including socialism and communism, has one major goal in common: Get rid of individual property rights. eir plan of action?

Snap (not your “ ngers) is a quick and fun way to resize and view open windows. € To look at two windows side by side using SNAP, you no longer have to resize or move the windows to where you want each of them. You simply display both windows on your screen, move your curser to the title bar at the top of one window, and drag it over to the left or right side of your screen. You will then see an outline of the expanded window appear; you can then release the mouse button and the window will snapŽ into place, “ lling the left or right side of your screen. Just repeat the aforementioned steps to snap your other window into place next to the “ rst. is is helpful for comparing two windows, side by side. (If you prefer to use your keyboard rather than your mouse, you can do so easily by pressing and holding the Windows logo key, along with the Left or Right Arrow.) To return either window to its original size, simply click on the title bar again with your curser and drag it away from the top of the screen, and it will snapŽ back to its original size. € To expand a window vertically, so that you can read a longer document, but not expand the width of your window, move your curser to the top or bottom edge of an open window until the pointer changes into a double-headed arrow. You can then click and drag the window to the top or bottom of your screen and it will snapŽ into place, vertically “ lling the screen. To return the window to its original size, as mentioned above, simply drag the title bar away from the top of the desktop, and it will, as before, snapŽ back to its original size. € If you work using several windows open at one time on your desktop, but “ nd this is sometimes distracting (to work on a single window with all the others open around it), you can quickly and easily maximize one window to the full size of your desktop. Simply move your curser to the title bar of the window you need to focus on, click and drag it to the top of the screen. e window will instantly expand to the size of the desktop. To return it to its original size, follow the same steps as before simply drag the title bar away from the top of the desktop, and it will snapŽ back to its original size. One quick (and cool) note … if you have multiple monitors, you can move a maximized window from one monitor to another by simply moving your curser up to the title bar, click on it and drag it across. Another quick and easy way to maximize your window is to move your curser to just below the top edge of the title bar, and double-click on it. e window will instantly “ ll the screen. Simply double-click again on the top of the window, and the window will return to its original size.

Two shows were presented in the multipurpose room with the classes of Courtney Edwards, Mary Guinsler, Tracy Kirby and Cindy Hiter performing at 6:00 and the classes of Hillary Cribbs, Lindsey Dubock, Corrie Houghtaling and Tonya Townsend performing at 7:00. e WES Safety Patrollers hosted a pizza supper prior to each performance. Lynne No“ music teacher since January, wanted a program with easy-to-learn melodies and with sensible lyrics easy to commit to memory. It had a great messageƒeach day is a gift,Ž said No“ As the title to one song said,  e Future Begins with Us. e lyrics to this song really stressed the importance of appreciating right now and how each of us can be the inspiration. e title song states Day breaks and hope renews! Possibilities to choose! Its important that our children realize that they, as the people of the 21st Century, are, indeed, the futureƒ the light and that they have the chance to do it right!Ž concluded No“ I agree with Mrs. No“ is play did send out to students as well as to parents the message about living each day to the fullestƒenjoying all lifes special moments,Ž said Guinsler, the team facilitator. It wasnt that scary [to sing in front of the audience],Ž said Delaney Holcomb, who sang a solo from We are the People of the 21st Century.Ž  e lyrics said we should walk hand-in-hand, that we should help each other help the world ƒthe environment. ere are some places where theres not enough food, so we should go out and at least do fundraisers and send the money to those people who dont have enough,Ž Delaney explained.

I sing a lotƒin the shower,Ž she said. I liked the Right Now dance.

Of course, all WES grade-level musical productions rely on the great support of the special area team and aides to help with supervision, costume production and staging. Townsend made the headbands, and Kirby and technology manager Charlie Watson coordinated the technology. Helping No“ by creating the sets and decorating the stage were art teacher Helen Darling and volunteer Peggy Brooks. In addition, ESE teacher Rowena Rivera also created a huge backdrop. As always, PE teacher Erin Owens choreographed the dances to enhance the individual songs as did Dubock, Kirby and No“ Counselor Ti ani Markham assisted with the narration, coaching the students who had speaking parts as did their classroom teachers. Also we have a wonderful team who really cooperates,Ž said Guinsler. Besides practicing the choreography, we all worked with those students who had speaking parts and practiced with our entire classes so they could learn the lyrics. I was especially pleased by how both audiences were captivatedƒ they were greatƒattentive and polite.Ž I very much appreciated the cooperation I received from the 3rd grade team, the students and my special area team. My new day at WES has been a celebration indeed!Ž exclaimed No“ who also performed several classical pieces of piano music prior to both performances. At the end of both presentations, she received cards of thanks and potted plants as tokens of the groups appreciation. She had included a message in the program to assistant principal Angel omas, wishing her a blessed New DayŽ in her new position as principal at Chie” and Elementary School. e 3rd grade performance marks the end of the PTO programs for the year. e “ nal event of the year at WES will be the 5th graduation ceremony on ursday, June 7th, at 8:45 a.m. in the multipurpose room. Because of limited seating, graduates are limited to inviting two guests. Williston Elementary School music teacher Lynne No directs the 3rd graders who are on stage. Assisting her with technology is Lindsey Dubock and Ti ani Markham is helping prompt the speakers. e song Right NowŽ features current technology and modes of transportation along with the message that nowŽ is a gift which is why we call it the present.ŽChase Eschbach sings her heart out during the opening song of the play, A New Day.

The Levy County Journal8AMay 31, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Mike Joyner Announces Candidacy for District 3 Commissioner SeatLevy County Commissioner Mike Joyner, a Morriston cattleman and retired law enforcement o cer, has announced plans to seek the District 3 commission post. Joyner, 62, who runs a 385-acre owned and leased cow-calf operation with this son, is a family man, devoted Christian, a Republican and political conservative. Joyner was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in October of 2011 to serve the remainder of an unexpired commission term for District 1. He favors protecting and preserving existing industries in Levy County including farming, ranching, timber and aquaculture, but will work to bring clean industry to bolster the tax base and increase employment opportunities. Joyner advocates a 1-cent sales tax to help fund county operations rather than relying solely on property taxes paid by the property owners. He believes a sales tax would spread the tax burden from property owners to everyone, including our many tourists and visitors who also use county services. I dont think its right for a small percentage of the county residents to bear the burden of paying all the county taxes,Ž he said. County government has outstanding employees but the only way to provide them with better wages is to bring in clean industry to expand the countys tax base. Joyner has been married to Diane (Priest) Joyner of Morriston for the past 39 years. ey have a son, Scooter (Dedra), and daughter, Jen (Ben), and three granddaughters: Amanda, Taylor and April. Joyner is a longtime member of the Morriston Baptist Church. Am I a Christian? Ill put it this way. I believe in the Lord God with all my heart and mind. So am I a Christian … 100 percent. But I need to be a better Christian.Ž He and his wife live in a beautiful home on their Levy County Century Pioneer Farm which was founded by Diane Joyners grandparents, Emory and Ella Priest in 1898. A Century Pioneer Farm means the land has been farmed continuously by the same family for 100 years. e cow-calf operation Joyner runs involves raising calves to a certain weight to sell at market. Joyner describes himself as a cowman rather than a rancher. He uses horses and dogs to round up his cattle in the woods. Joyner also says he is not a politician. He is plain spoken, but has and uses common sense. Im not going to make decisions based on popularity,Ž he said. Im going to do what is best for the people of Levy County.Ž Joyner spent 38 years in law enforcement including six years as a Levy County Sheri s O ce courthouse deputy-sheri guarding a circuit judge. He retired as undersheri (2nd in command) at Je erson County Floridas sheri s o ce where he conducted state and federal investigations. Joyner received the Medal of Distinction for playing a central role in the capture of serial killer Eileen Wuornos in Florida. Wuornos was a prostitute who killed seven men in Florida in 1989-90. She was convicted and sentenced to death. She died by lethal injection on October 9, 2002. Joyner also received the Medal of Commendation for his work in law enforcement. He believes in preserving 2nd Amendment rights; the right to bear arms. Joyner loves Levy County and its traditions and culture, and wants to protect its property owners. His common sense will be used to achieve that goal. To me, I dont have the education that a lot of people have who are politicians, but I have enough common sense to know how to make a living and I have enough common sense to help people,Ž he said. if you could save $522 ƒ why wouldnt you?*Call 1-866-950-6842 to get your fast, free car insurance quote.*National average annual savings based on data from customers who reported savings by switching to Esurance between 1/1/10 and 5/19/10. E ective this date, the Levy County Sheri 's O ce takes great pride in promoting Deputy Willie Pete Barnes, to the rank of Corporal in the Patrol Division. is decision was based on his distinguished service to our o ce and his unwavering commitment to excellence in the “ eld of law enforcement. We look forward to great things from him in his career at the Levy County Sheri 's O ce. Corporal Barnes began his career in the United States Military and served our Army with honor for 13 years. He then dedicated 16 years to the Florida Department of Corrections before transferring to the Levy County Sheri 's O ce as a patrol deputy in July of 2000. Since his assignment in the patrol division, Corporal Barnes has excelled in all facets of Law Enforcement. Corporal Barnes currently is assigned as a K-9 Levy County Sheri s O ces Deputy Barnes Promoted to Corporal LCSO Corporal Willie Pete Barnes standing with Major Evan Sullivan on the right and Sheri Johnny Smith on the leftIf the kennel was being set up in Chie” and, that would be di erent. In fact, this is so out of whack we will even venture to say if you were going to not advertise with the Journal then why in the world not choose the Williston paper that is still owned by Landmark? Why the city of Chie” and? A copy we obtained of itemized billings from legal ads in October and December of 2011 and January of 2012 revealed that in order to cover all of Levy County the ads were placed in all three of the Landmark papers in Levy County costing the taxpayers an extra $5 per column inch or an extra $558 for those three particular ads. Not very cost e ective and yet that was the reason given to choose to advertise elsewhere. Now it appears that just one city paper in Chie” and is being chosen by someone to run ads for all of Levy County, instead of the paper of record in Levy County, the Levy County Journal Maybe our readership can “ nd out the reason by calling your commissioner or county attorney to “ nd out why city papers, especially one, are being chosen to advertise county ads. ere will be a public hearing on the dog kennel special exemption in Morriston (on SE 215 Avenue) on Monday June 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the courthouse. And all of you who pull Special Events permits for your agencies, groups and concerts … as we reported previously, there is a new set of rules, lots of them, concerning the Special Events permitting and the next meeting could be when it is voted on. at hearing is on Tuesday June 5 at 5:01 p.m. o cer within the Patrol Division.

I was smiling, kind of agreeable; until he started challenging my dad and my brother Heath to a contest! My face went pale. Bragging rights will hang in the balance, He continued. I kicked him under the table. Derek was full of hot air. Id never out shed my dad. I had no doubt he could stop at a pothole along the way and dangle out a safety pin from an old broom stick and win this deal. I straightened up just in time to meet my dads gaze. Yeah, I heard someone say, You guys wont stand a chance. Hey, I thought, ats my voice! I wish somebody would come up with a cure for this testosterone stu !!! As if we needed another witness to our pending humiliation, Derek invited our work buddy Keith to go along. It only added to my apprehension. We got there extra early that day and shoved o To my surprise, my old boat cranked up the very rst try. Yes!!! Wed be getting a much needed head start on my dads fancy new boat. I put the hammer down, but it just gasp, choked, and sputtered o lamely hitting on one cylinder. Did you change out the gas out from last year? Derek asked. Just hush up, I replied. I had the cover o the motor and was sweating profusely by the time my dad and Heath barreled past us. irty minutes later we puttered past to nd them wrangling a big bass out of my secret spot. I jutted my jaw out in protest and refused to look; just kept going. Besides, I knew of another little honey hole on down. Seconds later we ran a ground. e water level is down a mite since my last trip, I said sheepishly. We shoved back o and resigned to sh my dads leftovers. ere werent many. By lunch we had boated one little throwback. I nally suggested we try the other end of the lake. As we puttered back by I noticed Heath had the net out and was scooping another one of my dads big bass. I didnt hear them laugh, but sometimes you just know. On the other end of the lake the wind was really whipping up. I had more than a little hesitation as we passed back by the safety of the boat ramp. However, I saw a promising little spot and let down the trolling motor. When it didnt work Derek asked, Did you charge the battery? Just hush up, I replied. As the wind swept us further down from the boat ramp I thought about crying, but I held o Instead I focused on yanking the pull rope to see if I could get the engine started without a battery. To my surprise, that one working cylinder eventually sputtered to life. Yes!!!Lets go on down a little further and try to get out of this wind, I suggested boldly. I admit, I had more than a little hesitation as we puttered o .Once at the far end of the lake the wind was a little better, but unfortunately it was also a little shallow. We ran aground again. I guess the water level is down a mite, I said sheepishly. ats when Keith opened his mouth for the rst time, Lets just get back to the boat ramp while we still can. It sounded like the best plan yet. I went to yank on that pull rope again and it broke, cracking old Derek squarely in the back of the head. I thought about crying again, but something about seeing Derek rubbing that newly forming knot on his noggin caused me to busted out laughing. Derek and Keith reluctantly followed suit. ere, a mile from the boat ramp facing 35 mph winds I nally got my cry; but it was from chuckling so hard! anks goodness for cell phones. Daddy and Heath said theyd come get us once theyd caught their limit. About ten minutes later they rolled up. I didnt see them laughing, but sometimes you just know. But anywayIm so glad the Lord is teaching me to weather the storms di erently these days. He said, (In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33 KJV) Im glad Hes overcome. Im also glad He doesnt fall o the throne and start biting His ngernails every time I go up the creek without a paddle! In the big scheme of things I can trust that my light a ictions are but for a moment. I can keep my cheer. e Bible also says, (for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10 KJV) So whether youre riding high in a fancy new boat full of sh, or whether youre bailing water in stranded boat full goofballs, trust in the Lord. He is the one who can give you the ultimate victory. Maybe now I cant see God getting the last laugh on my behalf, but sometimes you just know. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

CF is committed to operating in an e cient and e ective manor and responding to the needs of both our students and the communities we serve. In recent meetings with area K-12 education leaders in the colleges three-county service area, Dr. James Henningsen, CF president, said, Its time we take a hard look at the programs we o er adult students compared to similar programs o ered by our partners and decide how to restructure our instruction to avoid duplication and continually examine the best use of limited resources. During the upcoming academic year the college will reorganize the Academic A airs division. With that change, some programs will be consolidated, moved or phased out due to low enrollment, diminishing budgets, nearby duplication of degree programs, and decreased career opportunities for graduates in certain elds. e programs a ected by this reorganization are Cosmetology and Barbering, Welding, Drafting and Design Technology and Practical Nursing. According to Dr. Mark Paugh, vice president of Academic A airs, Cosmetology and Barbering are duplicated programs with Community Technical and Adult Education in Marion County and Withlacoochee Technical Institute in Citrus County. Financial resources and facilities are to be redirected to address high priority college programs. Enrollment of new students in the program would be stopped beginning in summer 2012. Currently enrolled students should plan to complete their respective program by December 2012. Faculty positions will be evaluated based upon quali cations and either reassigned or eliminated at the end of fall semester 2012. Welding is a duplicated program with CTAE in Marion County and WTI in Citrus County. Because of job growth in Levy County, the welding program at the Ocala Campus will be moved to new facilities at the Jack Wilkinson Levy Campus in Chie and. A faculty position will be reassigned to the Levy Center. e Drafting and Design Technology program has experienced low student enrollment and low employment demand from the community. Additionally, a communitybased needs assessment reinforced suspending the program. Admission of new students to this program will be stopped immediately and currently enrolled students will be encouraged to complete or transition to a compatible program at the college. CTAE has noti ed CF that it is interested in initiating a Practical Nursing certi cate program. CF supports CTAEs proposal and has recommended closing the P.N. certi cate program at CF e ective with December 2012 graduation. Resources from the P.N. certi cate program will be reallocated to support high demand academic needs at the college including the Associate in Science (R.N.) nursing program, which is one of CFs strongest degree o erings. e College of Central Florida continues to put the needs of our community at the forefront while making wise investment of the limited resources entrusted to us, said Henningsen. While we have made some di cult decisions, we are committed to doing what is best for our students and the communities we serve.

The Levy County Journal8BMay 31, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 BY DAVID MORGANSTAFF WRITER Got Booty? If you have a coffee can full of old coins, an old guitar or maybe the costume jewelry your aunt gave you, its time to bring it out of hiding. This week, Treasure Hunters will make a five day stop here and want to see what you have. These Treasure Hunters arent armed with a shovel and metal detector, rather their weapon of choice is their expertise and the collectors they buy for. You see, these guys know all about diamonds, coins, antiques and collectibles, musical instruments and anything thats old. For five days they are asking you to bring your booty and make your best deal. These guys pay cash for just about anything thats old. The items they buy go straight to collectors all over the world. How much is a 1960 Gibson Les Paul worth? Well, to some, it might be worth a couple hundred dollars but to a serious collector it could be worth thousands, even tens of thousands. These guys are buying for these collectors. They pay more for the things their collectors want. The event is free to attend and there is no obligation to sell anything. If its information you want, that wont cost you a thing. But be prepared, as an offer to purchase your treasures is highly likely. About eighty percent of the stuff that comes into the show is purchased by these hungry treasure hunters. According to the Treasure Hunters I talked to, the wait time to get your items looked at is usually a half hour or less. Once there, your items will be examined, identified and an offer will quickly follow. Then its up to youdo I sell, do I hold out for more or do I walk? The whole thing sounds like a lot of fun and might put some jingle in your pocket. So dig up that booty and head down to the show. You might have the treasure they have been looking for!ABOVE A customer brought in his fathers coin collection that he had inherited. He was pleasantly surprised with his offer and decided to sell the collection. He said that the money would go towards a down payment on a house for his family. Im Tony, and I get asked this question a lot. I usually say, if its gold or old, they will probably be interested in it. I know thats a vague answer, so heres a list that might get you thinking: Gold Jewelry, Costume Jewelry, Diamonds, Silver Coins, Silver Dollars, Gold Coins, Old Paper Currency, Old Wheat Pennies, Old Pocket Watches, Toys made before 1970, Wrist Watches, Foreign Coins, Silver Bullion, Sterling Silver, Barbie Dolls, Tonka Trucks, Coin Collections, Advertising Signs, Old Guitars, Saxophones, All Musical Instruments, Comic Books, Historical Documents, Oil Paintings Hi, Im Dennis and I am a Treasure Hunter. Silver is almost $35 per oz. Five years ago, it was $2.50 per oz. If you have old silver jewelry, tea sets, sterling and old silver coins, I want to see it. I buy hundreds of pounds of silver every week. If its silver, please come and see me!Hi, my name is David. Ive been collecting coins since I was a child. I cant wait to visit with you and examine your old coins and paper currency. I will be honest and fair with you and pay you as much as I can for your old coins. I have purchased millions of dollars worth of coins from people all over the world. Did you know that the United States started minting coins in 1793? All coins are worth something: old silver dollars, half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1965 are mostly silver and worth many times their face value. A $20 gold coin from the early 1900s could be worth $2,000 or more to collectors. If you have any older coins or paper currency, please come see us. We will buy one coin or million dollar collections.NEWS IN BRIEFSTAFF REPORTEd Johnson, heavy equipment operator, was surprised when he pulled the giant scoop of earth from the basement he was digging. What is that? he thought. An old whiskey barrel or a wooden box of some kind? He jumped off his backhoe to investigate. As he approached, his mind was racing. He could see that the wooden box was badly decayed and full of something. As he got closer, he could make out a sword, an old canteen and remnants of an old military uniform. While sifting through the box, he found a bugle, tattered papers and some military badges. It appeared to be the belongings of a soldier of some kind. He spent the rest of the day collecting and examining the items he had found. He The next morning he stopped by the local coffee shop to ask questions about the lot he was digging on. He stopped at the right place. Three elderly gentlemen were swapping stories as they did every morning. Ed approached the group and asked if they were from the area. They all laughed and said Whos asking? Ed explained that he was building a new house on a lot he recently purchased and told them where it was. One gentlemen said, Oh, you mean the old Norris place? That place was demolished over 50 years ago. Been an empty lot ever since. Ed was intriguedhe hadnt realized there had been a house there. Place just a school boy at the timeno one was home, but the place was a total loss. The charred remains it was cleaned up. I walked past a week, back and forth from school. Went all the way to the 8th grade, the fellow said with a smile. After that, no one ever rebuilt on the lot. Im glad to see somebodys doing something with it. Go down and talk to Larry at the court house. He can pull the plat book and tell you all about it. The old guy was right, Larry was a wealth of information. The original farm house was built by Elsie and Thomas Little back in to Elijah Miller in 1883. Then in 1916, the place was sold to Henry Norris who tore down the existing two-room farm house and built a new house. That house All of this was great info, now what about the military actly what they were. When Ed learned that the Treasure Hunters were coming to town, he thought this would be his chance to learn more about the items he had found. The advertisement had said that the experts would offer advice on any antique and collectible items and they would do it for free. It also said that they would make offers to purchase items. He wasnt interested in selling, but you never know. Hey, if the price is right, who knows? Ed walked into the hotel where the show was and followed the signs to the meeting room with great anticipation. My heart was actually beating at twice the normal rate, he said. As soon as I walked in I was welcomed to the show and given a number. They said it would be about 10 minutes until they would call my number. While I waited, I looked at all the unusual antiques on display. There were old toys, coins, silver tea sets and old metal signs. There was even a sword similar to mine. My number was called and it was the moment Id been about the items I had found. Ed continued, almost immediately after I sat down, Greg the antique guru was assigned to assist me said, hey nice Civil War sword and bugle. Where did you get them? I told him my story and he said the family most likely buried the items in honor of the soldier who owned them, and who most likely fought in the Civil War. The soldiers uniform, or what was left of it, the sword and other items would have been distributed by the Union Army. The items were that of an infantry soldier and dated at around 1863. Because a bugle was found, this soldier was most likely the company bugle boy. Most buglers were young boys. Also, the hat a very small headthat of a 12 to Greg also explained that since the uniform, sword and other items were together, the soldier most surely survived the war and learning about the items was worth the trip. The entire collection was valued at $2,200. Most of the value was the sword and the bugle. I decided to take pictures and sell the collection. I had a great time learning about it and thought it should be in a Civil War enthusiasts collection. Im actually having a small monuand putting it at the exact location where it was found.

Ive been a Treasure Hunter since 1996. Back then, gold was around $225 per oz.now its six times that. Gold has never been this high and may never be again in my lifetime. Back in the 1980s, gold and silver soared in price, but soon fell back to rock bottom. Well, its a sellers market right now. The poor world economy and weak dollar have increased prices to all-time highs. My advice to people is to sell now at the high side. Many people have gold in their jewelry box and dont realize how valuable it really is. If youve got old rings, necklaces, mismatched earrings or even gold teeth just sitting in a dresser drawer, dig it out and bring it in. You will be surprised just how much we can pay you.

As in the past, the cleanup will consist of many, many small cleanups all along the rivers during a three-month window from September through November.

USCIS ELIS will transform how we interact with our customers and how we manage the 6-7 million applications we receive each year.Ž is initial launch brings the agency closer to realizing the future of immigration services. Beginning today, individuals can establish a USCIS ELIS account and apply online to extend or change their nonimmigrant status for certain visa types. Eligible individuals include foreign citizens who travel to the United States temporarily to study, conduct business, receive medical treatment, or visit on vacation. USCIS ELIS will also enable USCIS o cers to review and adjudicate online “ lings from multiple agency locations across the country. Historically, USCIS customers have had to apply for most bene“ ts by mail and USCIS employees then review paper “ les and ship documents between o ces to complete their adjudication. Todays launch signi“ es an important step forward and is the “ rst of several releases. Future releases will add form types and functions to the system, gradually expanding to cover “ ling and adjudication for all USCIS immigration bene“ ts. is important transition for Americas immigration bene“ ts system will take time and continued dedication to fully implement. Following this “ rst release, USCIS anticipates making adjustments and improvements in response to user feedback. is process will enable USCIS to continually enhance the user experience for both customers and USCIS employees. It will also allow the agency to smooth the transition to electronic “ ling over time, mindful of those individuals without computer access and the agencys commitment to serve our diverse customer base. Bene“ ts of using USCIS ELIS include “ ling applications and paying fees online, shorter processing times, and the ability to update user pro“ les, receive notices, and respond to requests electronically. e system also includes tools to combat fraud and identify national security concerns. Visit www.uscis.gov/uscis-elis to take a tour of the new system, learn about eligibility and the bene“ ts of using USCIS ELIS, and “ nd frequently asked questions.

After noticing trash around one of the receptacles on campus, Nancy Bowman, a 5th grade teacher at WES, invited her students to take a trash bag outside and help out. After theyd “ nished their “ nal science assessment, a group went all over the south end of the campus. Candy wrappers, plastic straws from drink cartons, broken pencils and water bottle labels were among the items they bagged. Were also short a couple of custodians, so it is very important that we all pitch in and do our part,Ž said Hiers. It helps keep the school clean,Ž said Terrell Bolton and Juan Bautista, two students who hustled to “ nd as much trash as they could. ey had procured a bag from Bernita HawkinsSmith, one of the schools custodians. I dont want [WES] to be a dirty schoolƒit should be clean, not just when company is coming,Ž added Terrell.

Teaching Good Citizenship e Our Santa Fe RiverŽ non-pro“ t group is speaking loud and clear that our waterways need some help and the picture included here says it all. e recent ugly algae outbreak on the Santa Fe River is a sight to behold … enough to make your eyes cry and itch too. OSFR hosted a public hearing on May 29 which included Suwannee River Water Management District and area experts on our waterways. Algal blooms are clogging the river and at least one test sample has contained a potentially harmful cyanobacterium, Anabaena circinalis. ese particular blue-green algae produce a known neurotoxin in Australia, but have not been proven to be toxic in Florida or the United States. Algal outbreaks are caused by low water conditions, heat, and pollution in the form of nitrates. It is important to understand both the causes of these current conditions as well as their impacts. e health of our waters is important not only environmentally but also economically. It is critical for us to understand why our springs and river are su ering, because the livelihoods of our community and our recreationand ecotourism-based businesses depend on the health of our springs and rivers.
