Cobb has been a xture in the Levy County political picture for many years. Cobb has submitted a statement concerning his future political intentions for publishing by the Levy County Journal Long time political and civic leader Dogan Cobb, at the age of 101, has recently changed political parties, switching from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. Mr. Cobb says that he has been struggling with this issue for some time now.... Having been registered as a Democrat for over 80 years Mr. Cobb says Ive had and still have a lot of Democratic friends in Levy County over the years and I served Levy County as Tax Assessor for 32 of those years so this has been di cult for me. e Democratic Party with its tax and give-away programs is just killing the small business people and their support of abortion and gay rights is just more than I can stomach and I made the decision that I could no longer identify with a party that supported these issues. Mr. Cobb served as Tax Assessor from 1940 through 1972. Following that he assisted in the development of First Federal Savings and Loan of Bronson serving as a director and loan o cer for 20 years. Mr. Cobb also served on the Bronson Town Council as a Mayor for a number of years. Dogan S. Cobb Editors Note: Due to the Levy County Journals longstanding policy of not endorsing any candidates, certain portions of this statement concerning individual local candidates were not included in keeping with that policy. By Kathy HilliardEditorSupervisor of Elections Connie Asbell spoke before the Board of County Commissioners this morning at the regular meeting. Asbell was presenting a motion to pass the new redistricting and reprecincting of Levy County. During this redistricting and reprecincting we are not split on House or congressional districts. ey are all in, said Asbell. Asbell stated, Two precincts that I did do away with since they are so small is Otter Creek and Fowlers Blu Otter Creek will now to go Gulf Hammock and Fowlers Blu will go up to Willow Sink. You are looking at 125 voters in one precinct and 150 in the other precinct and cost wise it was not feasible to have these precincts any more. According to Asbell over 33 percent of Levy County is voting absentee and early voting now and the majority of voters in those two small districts were absentee and early voting also leaving only 25 voters in one district and about 50 in the other to utilize the precinct. e Motion was passed unanimously by the commissioners to redistrict.BoCC Passes Motion to Reprecinct Levy County Well Known Local Figure Changes Political PartyJournal Staff Harlene Quincey Flannigan, for many years one of Chie ands leading women, died Saturday June 2 at Haven Hospice in Chie and. She was 85. Flannigan and her husband Donald Quincey established the prosperous Chie and Farm Supply business in 1958. Donald Quincey died in 1992. A proud mother and grandmother, Harlene Quincey Flannigan is survived by her son, Don Quincey, owner of the Quincey Cattle Company; grandson Donald Je erson Quincey III, DJ, an agricultural pilot and her brother Harry Watson, retired. Born February 11th 1927 to Lee and Ida Belle (Drummond) Watson, Flanagan lived in the Chie and area all her life. Earlier she was an active member and leader in a number of church and civic organizations, including the Chie and Womans Club. Flannigan was known as an enthusiastic organizer of the club-sponsored Chie and Watermelon Festival. It didnt escape the notice of loved ones that shed passed away last Saturday as the still popular festivals parade was forming. Harlene Quincey Flannigan was a member of the First Baptist Church of Chie and. Pastor Gordon Keller said Monday that over the years shed served in a number of church leadership roles, including a stint as Sunday School Director. You know, thats one of the toughest jobs there is in a church, he added with a compassionate smile. It tells you something about her commitment and faith. roughout her life Harlene Quincey Flannigan was known as a community-spirited woman with deep family ties in the Chie and area. Family and friends celebrating her life in services held at First Baptist on Monday said she was a one of a kind woman with a unique air for being at once both amboyant and unpretentious. A classy and colorful dresser, with a penchant for rst class in automobiles and travel, Harlene Quincey Flannigan was a frequent international traveler in later years. Her grandson, D.J. Quincey, said earlier that though shed certainly traveled the globe, the greater Chie and area was always home Chie and attorney, business woman and life-long family friend Lynetta Usher Griner delivered a stirring eulogy at the Monday service. Griner said that, though Harlene Quincey Flannigan had no daughters herself, she had been a sterling and inspirational in uence on the lives of many younger Chie and women. After the service, Don Quincey expanded on a tribute hed given for his mother and ancestry in the Watson and Quincey Florida pioneer families. Unto whom much is given much shall be required Quincey o ered, citing a scriptural reference to the book of Matthew. D.J. and I have been very blessed to have the mothers, grandmothers and heritage we have, Quincey said. Its our charge now to honor that heritage through family and faith, our work and community. A PART OF LEVY COUNTY HISTORY A Good Life CelebratedHarlene Quincey Flannigan deceased at 85 NEW Voting DistrictsAt todays Board of County Commissioners meeting the publisher of the Levy County Journal asked to be heard during the public comments. e following are some of his remarks: Good Morning. I am Andy Andrews and I represent the Levy County Journal the county paper of record. Ive heard a lot of good things here this morning. I agree with Commissioner Joyner that there are a lot of regulations going on; we are becoming a nation of regulations. I also agree with Commissioner Johnson that we need to educate and we do that best through the media and particularly with public notices. Public Notices are very important. I just wanted to know if you had read a copy of the Levy County Journal last week. ere was a zoning exception in Morriston concerning a dog pen. We noticed it was put in the Chie and Citizen and wasnt put in the Williston Pioneer and we just wondered why? Would the people in Morriston really read the paper in Chie and to see a zoning change in Morriston? We would certainly think it would be better placed in the Williston Pioneer or in the paper that is generally and customarily used to put in the legal notices, the Levy County Journal .So we just wondered why? Why was it put there in Chie and? We thought it was a cost cutting issue and I certainly understand the need to be frugal. But in checking back in October and December of last year and January of this year the county commission ran ads in all three of the Landmark Media papers in this county to cover the county and spent $600 more running these advertisements than if they were run in the paper generally and customarily known to run legals, the Levy County Journal People expect to see the legals in the Levy County Journal and it would have been $600 less to use the Levy County Journal and cover the whole county as is the custom for the Levy County paper of record. I did not say the county commission paper of record, the Levy County paper of record.Maybe something fell through the cracks. It is all about cost cutting. e county needs to know what is happening with these notices. Public notices are for everybody to understand. e delinquent tax list was published in the Williston Pioneer and I know they dont even claim to be generally and customarily published throughout Levy County. I urge you to look back at your policies on your legal notice advertising. It cost far more money to put the notices in three papers than one. We are going to continue to be civic and put out the news in fair and honest reporting. But I urge you to look at your legal advertising policies.Why?SRWMD Issues Water Shortage Order and Presents Model Ordinance to BoCC e Suwannee River Water Management District (District) Governing Board has issued a Phase III Water Shortage Order in response to extreme drought conditions. e order, which requires water use restrictions for all users, will go into e ect on June 13, the day after the boards next meeting. Under the water shortage order, restrictions, and some exemptions, will apply to residential, agricultural, commercial, and industrial users within the Districts boundaries. e 12 months ending on April 30 had the lowest rainfall total of all May-April periods since 1932, and the 12-month de cit rose to 17.1 inches at the end of April. Groundwater levels recorded at most monitor wells in the District and some river levels set new record lows for this time of year. As of April 26, Levy Blue Spring in Levy County had no observable ow for the rst time in its records. Poe Springs, Suwannee Springs, Otter Springs, and Alapaha Rise experienced the lowest ows on record. In addition, part of the Santa Fe River near High Springs nearly stopped owing.Even with recent rainfall from Tropical Depression Beryl, water levels are not expected to signi cantly improve, said Megan Wetherington, District senior professional engineer. Many areas in the District received at least 3-4 inches of rainfall, though localized areas received up to 14 inches. e restrictions mostly target outdoor water use, particularly lawn and landscape irrigation which usually accounts for half of household use.

She raised her chin to breathe deeply, despite a constriction that felt like her heart was pounding in her throat. e furious hired man, Suggs, yelled out from the yard again, You wont insult me, woman! Near the back steps now, hed lugged the massive snake with him. It was the diamondback hed trapped in her garden and sted behind its thick neck, ramming it in writhing coils from his arm into a coarse burlap bag from the barn. Suggs had sneered at the coin she o ered in sum as an insult. You heah me, woman! She waited against the door with her hands in her hair for a few minutes more. Her pay an insult she felt she would be sick. is man was as bad as the snake shed hired him to kill. Worse, she scolded herself. She pressed away from the door to stumble from the kitchen to the stairwell lit from a parlor window across the tall house. Halfway up the darkening stairs she sat and sprawled on her side with her head resting against the higher step. In her nausea she could not remember if shed locked the door. She was certain she had not barred it. Trying to steady herself, she then 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 thousand locusts. en it ceased with another thud and a strange yowl or was it a laugh falling away from the porch? en all 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 open and in its frightening gap lay the empty burlap bag, its mouth loose on the threshold of her kitchen door. It was inescapable, the fear that Suggs had put the snake with venomous spite in her house. e serpents stench was a demonic musk that at the very least crept from the sunshine on the burlap and already invaded her home. She prayed. Leonas panic dissolved with the weakening of her knees to a feeling of numbness. When shed gathered her strength, she wedged and stacked parlor chairs to form a barricade and block o the kitchen from the rest of the house. She went quickly then up the stairs and took up the shotgun that had been at her bedpost. e gun had been her husband Lawtons for shooting birds or varmints that might come up in the night to raid their garden, coops or cribs. She waited at the top of the stairs when suddenly she heard below something, something faint as the sound of a sandy boot sole shifting slowly over a linoleum oor. Was it that, or the sound of scaled skin scraping over the fabric of parlor chairs? She lunged forward, erce for her own defense in that moment and raised the shotgun in the hollow clamor of her laced shoes down the stairs, but the diamondback was not there. Nowhere to be seen over or around the chairs. She peered down the double barrel of her gun and followed it with steel gray eyes from below the chairs to the full expanse of the kitchen oor. e bag lay where she had last seen it, though the spot of sunlight in a gaping door had edged over the burlap toward afternoon. ere were dark places large, deep or broad enough to obscure a snake even as big as this one. e cupboard door stood with a narrow crack to the oor, one wide enough for a snake to slither through. e stove had room beneath it, too, and behind the wood box was another hideaway. Brooms in a corner could shield the snakes limply-coiled shape. Leona listened intently, every sense heightened and alert. She marveled most in that instant that her sight and hearing seemed recovered, even if temporarily, from the river of time that had diminished them through the long years. It was now twelve years since she had lost Lawton. He was not the bold cavalry man, not rough and ready as her father was, but a quiet man who stood his ground honorably. She wished aloud he could be at her side now. Lawtons gun would have to do. Her earlier prayer had summoned strength. She donned her broad sunhat and went out the front door and around beneath the eaves where burrowing bugs made pocks and squiggles in the soft sand. She held the shotgun up and would not be surprised to see Suggs standing out from the house. He wasnt there. She surveyed the back porch and saw the burlap bag (the croker sack, as Suggs had called it) from the opposite vantage. It seemed more at and vacant of horror from there where she stood beneath the cloudless sky. Nothing moved over the porch, nothing she could see from the steps within. She was not hungry, but she wondered what she could eat with her kitchen under siege. ere were the hampers of pecans covered out in the barn to keep them from squirrels. Leona backed away from the porch and stood out in the yard to ponder what to do. ere were neighbors she might call upon, the Bene elds or old Neil Mack down the road. He wouldnt do, Neil Mack with snu and sweat stains on his yellowed shirt. Not a month after Lawtons death, shed had to send him back out the gate with his wilting handful of purple phlox. e Bene elds had a telephone. e sheri in Bronson could be called, but then shed have to explain her foolishness. What lone woman as she was in her right mind would trust a vagrant stranger like Suggs to stay the hour, much less the night? ere would be that to account for, and about the snake and all that had come to pass in the bitterness between Suggs and her. Just too much to tell. She had gotten into this mess, she scolded herself again, and shed just have to get herself out. Working had always settled her mind. She liked to work. To see orderliness made in the headway of daily living pleased her. e garden pleased her. She determined that she would hoe and weed and pick peas, even in the heat of the day. She would watch for any movement over the burlap at the back door of the house across the yard. ere was an old cane-bottomed chair beneath the scuppernong arbor where she sometimes sat in the shade and shelled peas into a wash pan. She brought the chair with the wash pan to the gardens edge so she could leave the shotgun to rest over its arms. She could walk rapidly to the gun and press forward to raise and shoot when the dragon showed itself from the dank cavern her home had become. Later in the day she did look up from picking beans to see the vague sweep of a dark shape over the back steps. She started for the shotgun. en she saw in the merciful breeze over the corn that the shadow was made by the sway of a long drape of moss hanging in a pecan tree nearby. Leona Hames went back to retrieve her pan from the sand and trudged up the row to her butter beans. Twice in the shade of the Scuppernong arbor, Leona nearly fell asleep with her hands resting over the speckled butterbeans and hulls in the pan in her lap. But then she would jerk her head up with a fright, reach for the shotgun and search with piercing eyes the late afternoon shadows forming over the porch. Nothing else was moving. Shed placed a jar of water opposite her sunhat beside her chair. She drank deeply again, watching over the jar as she drank. It occurred to her then that it was the snakes nature to return by rst light to the garden. Would she see? How would she know? Leona Hames carefully mounted the back steps, the heavy shotgun balanced in the crook of her arm and an ash bucket in her other hand. With special care, she formed a horizontal line of sand in a sweeping arc about the door. If the diamondback came out over the burlap, hed leave his twisted track. is done, she re lled the bucket from a rain barrel at the corner of the house and doused the back steps until they glistened like glass beneath the somber sky. Her thought was that the scent of water might also draw the snake, for there was none she knew of in the kitchen now. By the time she had done these things, the darkness was descending and the kites darted over the tassels of corn toward the collapsing sunset. Leona Hames resolved that she simply could not sleep in house that night. So, seeing by lantern light that the upholstered parlor chairs remained a stout bulwark as they lay stacked, she returned to her defenses under the arbor. e night was warm and the crickets played their nocturnal symphony, although it seemed to her that evening like a nauseous buzz. Leonas hands lay curled about the shotgun across her lap, her eyes wide and bright as the moon now above the ligree of pecan boughs. She did not know when she fell asleep. She didnt think that she had, but the dawn was breaking over the tree line along the pastures behind the garden. She stood up at once and rushed with the shotgun to the back steps. e door was ajar just as she had last seen it. e bu rlap lay as it had. e sand was undisturbed. Her heart sank and she backed away with tears welling for the rst time in her gray eyes. Leona Hames washed her face in the rain barrel, then heard the whine of an automobile turning up the lane. It stopped. She thought she heard men talking across the corn eld down by the road. en the car was coming again and the grill of a black Ford appeared around the tall corn as Leona stood out from the house tightening the bun of her hair behind her head. It was the sheri s car. She saw that now, Wallace Simes himself driving and Neil Mack riding along in his battered, straw fedora. Simes was tall and wore his badge high on his khaki shirt. Good mornin, Miz Hames, he said politely with Mack walking cautiously around to his side. Sheri she acknowledged uneasily. Miz Hames, thats a mighty big rattlesnake hung on your fence down yonder at the road. Her lip began to tremble and her eyes burn. It is? she asked almost pleadingly. Its a whopper. A bo-hawg diamondback, shor nu Mack volunteered holding his hat to his chest. ey was a man, too, down by my gate cold as a wedge, Miz Hames. Leona stared blankly at the two men. His hand was swollup like a cantaloupe an purple as a plum, most of it, Mack continued energetically. at there snake musta hitim like a baseball bat! Are you alright, Miz Hames? Simes asked. Yes, she replied vacantly. Im ne, Sheri Is there anything I need to know, Miz Hames? She stood, her lips moving slightly, her head lowered as if deep in contemplation or prayer, which neither man wanted to interrupt. Simes waited a moment longer with his hands on his hips. Neil Mack lowered his hat from his chest, revealing that recent blackberry juice had been added to the old array of snu and chicory stains across his dingy shirt. Miz Hames? the sheri nally asked again. She looked up slowly then. Youre sure that snake is dead? Yes Maam. Dead and drawin ies. No, Sherri she added softly. I dont think theres anything else to know.

The Levy County Journal4AJune 7, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 A Book for Republicans Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateDemocrats have been having a eld day with the cry of tax cuts for the rich -for which Republicans seem to have no reply. is is especially surprising, because Democrats made the same arguments back in the 1920s, and the Republicans then not only had a reply, but one that eventually carried the day, when the top tax rate was brought down from 73 percent to 24 percent. What was the di erence then? e biggest di erence is that Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon took the trouble to articulate the case for lower tax rates, in articles that appeared in popular publications, using plain language that ordinary people could understand. Seldom do Republican leaders today even attempt to do any such thing. In 1924, the ideas from these articles were collected in a book which Mellon titled Taxation: e Peoples Business. at book has recently been reprinted by the University of Minnesota Law Library. Todays Republicans would do well to get a copy of Mellons book, which shows how demagoguery about tax cuts for the rich can be exposed for the nonsense that it is. People in the media could also bene t by seeing how the tax cuts for the rich demagoguery collapses like a house of cards when you subject it to logic and evidence. ose who argue that the rich should pay a higher tax rate, and that the revenue this would bring in could be used to reduce the de cit, assume that higher tax rates equal higher tax revenues. But they do not. Secretary Mellon pointed out that previously the government received substantially the same revenue from high incomes with a 13 percent surtax as it received with a 65 percent surtax. Higher tax rates do not mean higher tax revenues. High tax rates on high incomes, Mellon said, lead many of those who earn such incomes to withdraw their money from productive business and invest it in tax-exempt securities or otherwise nd ways to avoid receiving income in taxable forms. at is even easier to do today than in Andrew Mellons time. e very same liberals who complain that Mitt Romney -among thousands of others -puts his money in the Cayman Islands nevertheless act as if raising the tax rates automatically raises tax revenues. It can instead drive money out of the country and drive jobs out of the country with it. e United States has long been a place where foreigners from around the world have sent their money to be invested, more than o setting the money that Americans invested abroad. But, in recent years, the net ow of investment is out of America to places overseas that dont tax as much. Mellon cited statistics that showed the opposite of what the high-tax advocates claimed. Although incomes in general were rising from 1916 to 1921, the taxable income of people earning $300,000 and up dropped by about four- fths. at didnt mean that the rich were becoming poor. It meant that they had arranged to receive their incomes in forms that were not taxable. Mellon asked where the money of these high income earners went. He answered: ere is no doubt of the fact that much of it went into tax-exempt securities. In todays global economy, much of it can also easily be sent overseas -much more easily than workers can go overseas to get the jobs this money creates in other countries. After Mellon nally succeeded in getting Congress to lower the top tax rate from 73 percent to 24 percent, the government actually received more tax revenues at the lower rate than it had at the higher rate. Moreover, it received a higher proportion of all income taxes from the top income earners than before. Something similar happened in later years, after tax rates were cut under Presidents Kennedy, Reagan and G.W. Bush. e record is clear. Barack Obama admitted during the 2008 election campaign that he understood that raising tax rates does not necessarily mean raising tax revenues. Why then is he pushing so hard for higher tax rates on the rich this election year? Because class warfare politics can increase votes for his reelection, even if it raises no more tax revenues for the government. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMMichelle Obamas Civilian Act Is Hard To Swallow OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate e rst lady of the United States is on a whirlwind publicity tour for her hefty new food and gardening book ($30), which the White House hopes will bolster Team Obamas favorability ratings. Id say its a classic recipe for rank campaign hypocrisy and media double standards. While journalists savor chummy chitchats with Mrs. Obama about beets and Beyonce, FLOTUS is once again escaping hard questions about her cronyism, junk science and generous junkets at taxpayer expense. Mrs. Obamas 2012 campaign media blitz has already brought her to daytime airwaves ( e Ellen DeGeneres Show), prime-time reality TV ( e Biggest Loser) and childrens programming (iCarly). is week, shes hitting up Good Morning America, e View, Rachael Rays cooking show, LIVE! with Kelly (Ripa) and Comedy Centrals e Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Out: Lets Move! In: Lets Move ... in front of the TV cameras! My prediction? As soon as the fawning media frenzy dies down and Mrs. Obamas book rises to the top of e New York Times best-seller list, POTUS will go back to claiming that FLOTUS is a private citizen who should be left alone. e Obamas Chicago strategists have long enjoyed invoking selective immunity for the rst lady without challenge. Lapdog reporters have assisted in creating an impenetrable bubble of political protection around the pro igate, policy-meddling rst lady. Weve seen it before. When conservatives challenged Mrs. Os caustic 2008 campaign trail statements disparaging America and fear-mongering for votes, her hubby invoked the civilian shield. He threatened Republicans to lay o his wife, arguing that political spouses should not be subject to public scrutiny because they didnt choose public life. When Mrs. Os lavish vacation in Spain -accompanied by an entourage of 70 Secret Service agents and 250 Spanish law enforcement o cers -provoked a massive public backlash in 2010, then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs argued that the rst lady was a private citizen who should be o -limits to tough questions about her behavior. Horse-hockey. Obamas outspoken bitter half conscientiously and deliberately inserted herself into the public square long before the family moved to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue -whether it was organizing a Woods Fund panel with her husband and Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers, taking a publicly subsidized government job with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, or parlaying her relationship with political mentor Valerie Jarrett into a cushy public job at the University of Chicago Medical Center, where she oversaw a patient-dumping scheme that bene ted her political cronies. As I reported earlier this month, Mrs. Obamas signature program (now run by Obamas best gol ng buddy Dr. Eric Whitaker) just received a $6 million grant from an Obamacare agency with zero independent oversight. Taste the boodle. Just a humble private mom raising her two daughters while Dad does all that hardball politics stu ? Pshaw. Lets not forget that Mrs. Obama leveraged her hubbys Senate victory to snag a lucrative seat on the corporate board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. despite having zero experience in the industry. When her garden gloves are o her political boxing gloves are on. Mrs. O famously has castigated other Americans choices in how they earn their money. She used her East Wing power to push Obamacare. She has exploited the bully pulpit to restrict food advertisers speech. She has served the SEIUs legislative agenda of increasing the welfare state and padding membership rolls with more government school workers under the guise of ghting child obesity. And she has relied on questionable science to declare war on so-called food deserts in poor neighborhoods where she claims only fast food is available. But according to two major peer-reviewed and published studies: 1) poor neighborhoods had nearly twice the number of supermarkets and largescale grocers per square mile as wealthier neighborhoods, and 2) there is no correlation between what students in a large-scale California survey ate, what they weighed and what kinds of foot they ate within the immediate radius of their homes. While she denies a Nanny State agenda, Mrs. Obama successfully has strongarmed several major restaurant chains into redesigning their menus to her exacting healthful standards. One of those targets is Darden Restaurants, which operates Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants across the country. At a time when most food service providers are struggling under the weight of increased taxes, health care mandates and regulations, Darden Restaurants just happens to be one of the few and fortunate businesses to obtain one of those coveted Obamacare waivers. When Michelle Obama stops using her public o ce to push new Big Government power grabs and redistribute wealth to her cronies ( ashback: Chicago Obama-lympics), stoke racial grievances, and meddle in Obama administration personnel decisions that lead to whistleblower rings (ask her about former AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin), Ill leave her alone. Until then, someones got to deliver FLOTUS her just deserts. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & Cronies (Regnery 2010).

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 continued on page 5A Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateAttorney General Eric Holder recently told a group of black clergymen that the right to vote was being threatened by people who are seeking to block access to the ballot box by blacks and other minorities. is is truly world-class chutzpah, by an Attorney General who stopped attorneys in his own Department of Justice from completing the prosecution of black thugs who stationed themselves outside a Philadelphia voting site to harass and intimidate white voters. is may have seemed like a small episode to some at the time, but it was only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. e U.S. Attorney who was prosecuting that case -J. Christian Adams -resigned from the Department of Justice in protest, and wrote a book about a whole array of similar race-based decisions on voting rights by Eric Holder and his subordinates at the Department of Justice. e book is titled Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department. It names names, dates and places around the country where the Department of Justice stopped its own attorneys from pursuing cases of voter fraud and intimidation, when it was blacks who were accused of these crimes. If Mr. Adams is lying, he has taken a huge risk in citing individuals by name and quoting them directly. Yet, despite the fact that most of those he accuses are lawyers, apparently no one has sued him. Moreover, Adams has also testi ed under oath before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, on the racial double standard at the Department of Justice, when it comes to voting rights. What Attorney General Holder has been complaining loudly about, and launching federal lawsuits about, are states that require photo identi cation to vote. Holder calls this blocking minority access to the voting booths. Since millions of black Americans -like millions of white Americans -are confronted with demands for photo identi cation at airports, banks and innumerable other institutions, it is a little much to claim that requiring the same thing to vote is denying the right to vote. But Holders chutzpah is up to the task. Attorney General Holder claims that the states requirement of photo identi cation for voting, in order to prevent voter fraud, is just a pretext for discriminating against blacks and other minorities. He apparently sees no voter fraud, hears no voter fraud and speaks no voter fraud. Despite Holders claim, a little experiment in his own home voting district showed how easy it is to commit voter fraud. An actor -a white actor, at that -went to a voting place where Eric Holder is registered to vote, and told them that he was Eric Holder. e actor had no identi cation at all with him, either with or without a photo. He told the voting o cial that he had forgotten and left his identi cation in his car. Instead of telling him to go back to the car and get some identi cation, the o cial said that that was all right, and o ered him the ballot. e actor had the good sense not to actually take the ballot, which would have made him guilty of voter fraud -and, being white, he would undoubtedly have been prosecuted by Eric Holders Department of Justice. But the actor had made his point. When a white man with no identi cation can go to a voting site, impersonate a black man who lives in that district, and get his ballot o ered to him, then it is far too easy to commit voter fraud. Does not Attorney General Eric Holder understand that? Of course he understands it! e man is not stupid, despite his other failings. Holders pooh-poohing of voter fraud dangers, and hyping the threat of denying minorities access to the voting booth, are completely consistent with his drive to (1) maximize the number of votes by black Democrats and (2) spread as much fear as possible among minorities that they are under siege, and that the Democrats are their only protection and salvation.Letter to EditorHolders Chutzpah

And each year we take the necessary steps to prepare for the stormy season. After you get together the main living essentials for you and your loved ones, you should evaluate what you need to do for your computer to ensure your data is safe. ese days computers and other electronics are more than just emails, websites, and instant messaging. ey also contain items such as personal photos, important documents, and even sensitive nancial information that if lost would be di cult to obtain from outside resources. If you do not already have a backup system set up, it would be bene cial to look into your options in advance. In most cases you would either be able to use a limited cloud backup program that backs up your data to a web based location making access to it easy from another location. Or you can even speak with your local computer repair shop to see if they have any o site back up services available that would take the worry and stress o your shoulders, knowing that your important data is safely backed up and accessible to you at any time. is way if your home becomes threatened by severe weather, lightening, or ooding, you will not have the added worry that your pictures or data might be lost if something was to happen to your computer. ere are several precautions you can take to ensure the safety of your data during severe weather. Unplugging your computer from the power source, as well as from a network and/or phone line is one sure way to ensure your system is not hit with a power surge. If you must continue to use your computer during a storm, be sure to plug both your power cord and phone line into a surge protector or a battery backup. Please note: You should replace surge protectors that have already been exposed to prior power surges, as their protectiveness will have been diminished. Keep in mind that even coaxial cables can transmit electricity, and can contribute to damage caused by power surges. Another way to protect your computer and other electronics would be to move those located on the oor to a sturdy surface at least 2 feet above oor level, and cover them with plastic bags or tarps. is will help protect them from water damage from a possible ood or wind and rain that may come through the roof or windows above. When it comes to the important data on your computer, backing up is always a good safety measure. If you are unsure of your current backup process you can always quickly copy the amount of les it can hold and take the ash drive with you as an emergency backup. Another suggestions would be to take your electronics with you if you evacuate to another safe location. is would not only give you peace of mind but it would also ensure less chances of severe weather damage.

Cadets from Dunns Manatee Division who drill in Yankeetown, Fla. invited the Tampa Bay Division which drills at Mac Dill Air Force Base and the Gulf Eagle Division which drills in Ft. Myers, Fla. to experience what life in the Navy might be like. Lt. Dunn said, It took hours of planning and coordinating, but allowing the cadets to be on base and hear rsthand about di erent opportunities is invaluable. In all there were about 16 adult leaders and almost 60 cadets that made their way to Mayport on a Friday evening via carpools. Everyone was privileged to stay at the Navy Lodge right on the beach. Squads of six cadets took turns standing watch throughout the night. At morning muster, everyone was buzzing with excitement. During reveille, national anthems from Spain and Brazil also played after the United States anthem as there was a Spanish ship and a Brazilian submarine in port. After some marching and physical training cadets lined up in the mess hall for chow and were treated to pancakes, eggs and bacon. A short drive later the group was at Fourth Fleet Operations Center. Before entering, cadets were o cially welcomed to the Naval Station by the Navy League of the United States President of the Florida Region William Dudley. Mr. Dudley was instrumental in making this event possible, Dunn explained to the cadets. No cell phones, no cameras, Warrant O ce Bryan Vickers relayed to everyone. e building that would be toured held both secret and top secret rooms. Small groups were led into a secret room lled with computers and large screens by Lt. Tommy Groves who is responsible for public a airs at the base. He made it clear that the room had been scrubbed of any sensitive information. e commander of the room provided the cadets an overview of her responsibilities which included knowing where the naval ships are around the waters of South America. She discussed the importance of the Panama Canal and the drills they do with the support of other countries on a regular basis to ensure the security of passage through the area. In the afternoon, the group was treated to a tour of the USS Robert G. Bradley, a guided missile fast frigate. Sta on board led the cadets around the ship stopping at the bridge, the bow and down below in the mess deck. ey were shown the various guns the boat is equipped with including the sea whiz with bullets that are larger than a mans hand and can track a target over a mile. ey were even able to climb through a hatch. Seaman Ricketts exclaimed, Ive never climbed so many stairs in my life, giving evidence to the rigors of sea life. Cadets had a thrill when they were each given an opportunity to use the re hose on board. ey learned how to aim the hose and then exchange the nozzle with the person behind them in line. Once back on shore, everyone joined the party being thrown by the United Service Organizations, also known as the USO, for Military Appreciation Day. is was time for cadets to swim in the pool, surf at the beach or just relax and enjoy their fellow shipmates and talk about the days events. Manatee Division drills at Coast Guard Station Yankeetown, in Yankeetown, Florida, on the second weekend of each month.

Many of the areas farmers and producers implement water conservation plans and have retro tted their irrigation systems to increase e ciency and reduce total water use. Systems that have been certi ed by an independent irrigation laboratory within the past ve years prior to the e ective date of a water shortage order to be as e cient as practicable or are compliant with applicable water conservation best management practices are not restricted.Other:Car washing is limited to once per week on the designated watering day for the location.

Residents and businesses can take simple steps, such as xing leaks and upgrading plumbing xtures to water conserving models. For a detailed list of all restrictions on water use, visit the water shortage page on the Districts website at www. mysuwanneeriver.com. e SRWMD presented a proposed model Ordinance to the Board of County Commissioners concerning the penalties and enforcement of this Water Shortage Order. In the end it was decided by the BoCC to not adopt an Ordinance which would only superimpose civil penalties on top of the criminal penalties already imposed by Florida Statute. e BoCC decided that Levy County did not have the personnel to enforce the regulations any further than is already mandated and that the people of Levy County were full able to police themselves on water usage. Commissioners Joyner and Johnson both spoke to the fact that educating the people on the issues was enough and the people could police themselves. According to Commissioner Johnson, It used to be you would walk across the street and tell your neighbor that what they were doing was stupid and settle it yourself without calling the cops or for the county commission. is is what we continually get into with these ordinances. If we would just police ourselves we would not need all this legislation, rules and regs. Mrs. Renate Cannon said it very succinctly, Let the state do its dirty work itself.SRWMD Issues Water continued from page 1A

Mary Ward has completed the lovely batik lap quilt. She used several pieces of batik material to complete this piece. Great job, Mary.School Superintendent Bob Hastings, a third generation educator in Levy County, has announced plans to seek re-election. Hastings taught vocational and academic classes at Chie and and Bronson High Schools. During that time he was an FFA advisor, football, baseball, track and weightlifting coach. Hastings assumed many other school duties, too many to enumerate. For the following nineteen years he served as Administrator/Principal for Bronson Middle/High, Cedar Key, Williston High and Chie and High Schools. In November of 2008, he was elected School Superintendent; a position he currently holds. Bobs career as an educator has always focused on, the Student. He believes that every decision should be based on how to best serve the students. e educational process is an interaction between the student and teacher enabling the learning development. at is the reason that all teachers, support personnel, and administrators must work together to accomplish the mission. Bob Hastings is a proven leader. He has been able to make the di cult decisions during an economic recession and a restructuring of the educational system mandated by the State and Federal Governments. Hastings knows the importance of operating within a balanced budget. ese attributes are driven by the Christian values inherited from his family. Our Future, Our Childrens Future is too important to leave to chance.

Most milk travels less than 100 miles to get from the dairy to your local grocery store. e average cow produces nearly seven gallons of milk a day. In addition, the foods that the dairy industry produces are some of the most economical sources of nutrition available. e grocers dairy aisle o ers something for everyone, from low-fat and fat-free varieties to lactose-free products.

On that day, over 63,000 Americans came out in 145 cities coast to coast and pushed back against the new mandate from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that requires all employers provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, even in violation of their consciences. Right now the entire Obamacare law, with its oppressive mandates and abortion loopholes, is under review by the United States Supreme Court. A ruling is coming at the end of June. If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, the June 8 Rally sets the agenda for future health care reform, demanding respect for religious liberty and freedom of conscience. But if the Court leaves Obamacare intact, the June 8 Rally advances our demand that the HHS Mandate must go. Come out on June 8, 2012the 223rd anniversary of the day our Founding Father James Madison introduced the Bill of Rights, with its guarantee of religious freedom, to the First Congressand stand up for religious freedom! Some of the groups that form this coalition promoting and participating in the rally and the work of the Stand Up for Religious Freedom league are: Alliance Defense Fund, American Life League, Americans United for Life, Association of Mature American Citizens, Catholic Online, Christians for Religious Liberty, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Concerned Women for America, Faith and Action, Freedom for Americans, Issues 4 Life Foundation, Life Legal Defense Foundation, Manhattan Declaration, National Black Pro-Life Coalition, National Center for Law and Policy, National Pro-Life Center, Operation Rescue, Petition to Stop HHS Mandate, Rock for Life, Students for Life of America, Texas Leadership Coalition, omas More Society, WyWatch Family Action.

Vilsack has approved the closure of six FSA county o ces in Florida, a process that will begin immediately. After the required noti cations have been provided to producers, FSA employees and o ce landlords, closure dates will be established and made publicly available. e county o ces con rmed for closure in Florida are: Escambia, Washington, Lafayette, Hamilton, Levy, and Highlands Counties. e agency will provide farmers and ranchers a ected by closures an opportunity to choose the most convenient neighboring county o ce with which to conduct their future business with the agency. In addition, all employees in a closing o ce will be provided an opportunity to continue their work with FSA. As a federal agency, FSA has been a ected by widespread budget reductions made by Congress. Since 2011, the Agency has lost 1,230 permanent employees through voluntary early separation and normal retirement. In addition, FSA has been forced to reduce discretionary administrative expenses by over 30 percent in the last scal year alone. For a complete list of FSA county o ces a ected by this decision, go to www.usda.gov Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) o cers Felix Collazo, Je Babauta and Jared Cloud each received a bullet-resistant vest today. However, they arent going to be the ones wearing them. ese vests were actually designed for their K-9 partners Jasmine, Mack and Gus, and donated by the Retired Law Enforcement Association of Southwest Florida. K-9s are often the rst ones into a dangerous situation, said Ray Hubbert, president of the nonpro t organization. We believe all K-9 o cers and their dogs should be protected. Hubberts group raises money to support law enforcement agencies in Southwest Florida and has already provided vests for 16 other local police K-9s. Collazo, one of two FWC K-9 trainers, was instrumental in building a relationship between the association and the FWC. We respect our partner agencies roles working traditional crimes on the streets, Collazo said. With that in mind, we waited until their K-9s were equipped before accepting our vests. e vests are manufactured and distributed by Point Blank Enterprises Inc., a Florida company, and will be used during particularly high-risk situations, like felony manhunts. ese are working dogs, said Capt. Carol Keyser, statewide coordinator for the FWCs K-9 program. ey are one of the tools that support our o cers. ey are valuable members of our agency and an important part of their handlers lives. We will do whatever we can to ensure our K-9s are safe and healthy. e vests will do just that. Designed to be bulletand stab-resistant, they will protect the dogs during the dangerous situations they are likely to encounter. For example, FWC K-9s have been involved in several searches for people suspected of shooting law enforcement o cers. In addition to tracking, FWC K-9s are trained in detection, Collazo said. ey can sni out hidden evidence like weapons, ammunition and sh and wildlife. We are grateful to Mr. Hubbert and his organization for such a generous donation, Keyser said. And we look forward to working with the Retired Law Enforcement Association of Southwest Florida in the future. article and photo submitted by the FWCFWCs K-9s Receive Extra Protection from Local Nonpro t

We decided to plan an outdoor Halloween block party. It was all we could talk about. So far my mom and little brother Heath were the only ones whod been fortunate enough to hear us. Since we practiced at my house almost every night, they were forced to endure us butchering both songs we knew, over and over again. ey generally werent all that supportive either, especially back before we all learned to tune to the same pitch. Mom would hole up in the back corner of the house plugging her ears, while Heath would just walk by and snicker. eir attitudes quickly changed when they heard about our upcoming Halloween gig though. Suddenly they were very helpful, even o ering to help roadie. Yep they both jumped right in and toted our gear clean out of the house before we could even ask! It just goes to show you, people treat you di erent when they realize youre going big time.Our rst sound check woke the neighborhood before the dew even lifted that Halloween morning, and I suspect we checked our tuning at least forty times throughout the day. Yeah, we were a mite anxious, but nothing compared to how we grew as nightfall approached with no sign of our little drummer boy. Where in the world is Jessie, I barked. I considered kicking over one of his cymbals. It wouldve help solidify my image as the bands bad boy, but since I didnt have the money to replace it, I wisely resorted to just stomping down to the curb to scan the street and pout. Not much was moving, just a vampire and a pair of witches a couple of doors down. Our singer Mac shu ed down behind me in his tie-dyed T-shirt. Be cool dude, he said reassuringly, We got a gig to groove. Im sure my man Jess will be here soon. Well I can tell you this, our bass player Ray chimed in, I aint setting up his drums next time. I nodded in agreement, ere wont be a next time for that little squirt if I get my hands on him! Of course, I was just blowing hot air. I wouldnt dare risk the wrath of Jessies big brother Tad. Tad was about to graduate high school. His band had already played Shakeys Pizza twice! Shucks, next to Ted Nugent, Tad was our hero. Besides, everyone knew Jessie was the best musician in the band even though he was only eleven. By nightfall the little drive way was clamoring with ghouls and goblins, curiously drawn by all the music gear. Even a couple of old people stood around, probably wondering when wed bring out the food and drinks. I gured theyd leave when they realized that wasnt going to happen. ats it, I nally cried, Im riding over to Jessies house again. I stu ed my bell bottoms in my tube socks and hopped on my Hu y. I pedaled the three blocks on pure adrenaline. Jessies momma answered the door toting a bowl of sweet tarts. Wheres little Jessie, I asked accusingly, Were supposed to be playing! She smiled, rather warily, like she always did when she saw me. Oh, ahh, she said, Jessies out trick-or-treating. My jaw fell slack. What in the world would an eleven year old be doing out trick-or-treating on Halloween? Whats he wearing, I pleaded. Hes cut up one of my best sheets, she replied, Hes gone as a ghost. I tore out of there like Id seen one. Back at the party I shouted, Hes a ghost! For a split second it didnt seem to register. en Mac hollered, Spread out! Check under every white sheet you see! For the next hour we were like a bootlegging band of Ghost Busters gone bad. We terrorized every poor boogeyman on the block, but Jessie was nowhere to be found. Eventually we all moped back to the party, if you could still call it that. It consisted mostly of Heath and my mom now. Somebody had egged our amps. What are we gonna do, I fumed, ghting back tears. Look! Mac shouted. Up the street came a little ghost bopping along toting a pair of drum sticks and a pillow case slam full of treats. Dont you hate when life doesnt go as planned? You get all excited, set something up, ne tune it, and then you spend all your time chasing ghost. Outside of just resigning to a life of it, how can we avoid such disappointment? rough much trial and error Ive found most disappointment simply stems from not being in tune with the Lords will in the rst place. How can we expect anything but failure when we dont have the Lords blessing on our gigs? (Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. Psalms 127:1 NIV) e Lord is the only builder with the blue prints to our success. But anywayIts never too late to start grooving to the beat of a di erent drummer. If you want to live a life worth living you must not only give your heart to Jesus, but surrender your will to His. en seek the Ghost, the Holy Ghost! God never intended for you to spend your time entertaining ghouls and goblins anyway. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

June has the most daylight hours and the longest day of the year, providing plenty of opportunity for families and friends to enjoy nature and each other. June is celebrated across the nation as Great Outdoors Month. President Barack Obama issued a proclamation urging Americans to spend time outdoors and to uphold our nations legacy of conserving our lands for future generations. e proclamation suggests families and friends explore, play and grow together, while hiking, wildlife-watching canoeing, hunting, shing or playing in the neighborhood park activities that help kids stay healthy, active and energized. Gov. Rick Scotts 2012 proclamation says during Great Outdoors Month, we celebrate the rich blessings of our states natural beauty and we renew our commitment to protecting our environment so that we can leave our children and grandchildren a healthy and ourishing land. It goes on to say, Great Outdoors Month will encourage cooperative conservation and new technologies to help ensure Americas outdoors remain places where families and friends can learn, exercise, and create meaningful memories. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), along with Florida State Parks, the Florida Forest Service and national forests, parks and wildlife refuges each promote a variety of activities to support Great Outdoors Month and other events in June.
