Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 88, NO. 51 50 CENTS THURSDAY, JUNE 21, 2012 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySee page 3ASee page 2ASee page 6ASee Levy Life page 2B EsmeraldaA Cedar Key Mystery, Part II By Kathy HilliardEditor e Primary Election is coming up from August 4 to 11 in early voting and August 14 for voting day. Here are a few items you might need to know to be ready to vote in the Primary for the person you want to hold o ce in Levy County and represent you. Florida is a closed primary state. If you wish to vote in a partisan (di erent party a liations) primary election, you must be a registered voter in the party for which the primary is being held so if you are a registered Republican you can only vote for a Republican candidate and if you are a registered Democrat you can only vote for the Democratic candidate. In the non partisan (NP) races, voters of all party a liations can vote for the non partisan candidate (these are the judicial and school board races). If a race has candidates that are only of one party … and … will have no opposition in the general election, then all voters, regardless of party a liation may vote in the primary election for those candidates. In other words, if all the candidates are Democrats with no opposition then all Democrats, and all Republicans, and all minority party voters, and all NP voters can vote in that primary race. But, if a race has candidates that are all of one party except for one a Democrat, minority or non partisan candidate, with no opposition in the primary, as in our sheri s race in Levy County, then the single candidate will not even be on the ballot in the primary election. at means only Republicans will be able to vote for the Republican candidates in the primary. When it comes time for the general election, the single candidate (non partisan, Democrat or minority) will be on the ballot with whoever won the Republican slot in the primary and voters in all parties will receive the same ballot and can vote for either one of the candidates. e deadline for registration and name, address or party a liation changes is July 16, 2012. For a name change: by marriage or other legal process, notify the Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell or other voter registration o cial to obtain and submit a signed written notice that contains the elector's date of birth or voter's registration number by July 16, 2012. For an address change: notify the Supervisor of Elections, Connie Asbell, to obtain and submit a Florida Voter Registration Application. However, if the address change is within the state and notice is provided to the supervisor of elections of the county where the elector has moved, the elector may contact the supervisor of elections via telephone or electronic means; or submit the change on a voter registration application or other signed written notice. e elector must provide his or her date of birth. For a party a liation change: notify the supervisor of elections or other voter registration o cial by using a signed written notice that contains the elector's date of birth or voter registration number. You can change your party a liation at any time, but not at the polls. If you make a party change after the registration deadline, July 16 for 2012, for the primary election, it will not take e ect until after the primary election. If you do not know the location of your polling place, contact Connie Asbells o ce. Also, Supervisors of Elections have precinct and polling place “ nders on their web sites to provide you with the information on where to vote. At the polls, you will be asked to provide a valid picture identi“ cation with signature. e following photo ids will be accepted: Florida drivers license; Florida identi“ cation card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles; United States passport; Debit or credit card; Military identi“ cation; Student identi“ cation; Retirement center identi“ cation; Neighborhood association identi“ cation; Public assistance identi“ cation. If your photo identi“ cation does not contain your signature, you will be asked to provide an additional identi“ cation that includes a signature. If you do not have the proper identi“ cation, you will be provided with a provisional ballot. Your provisional ballot will count if the signature on the provisional ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration application. You can update your signature at any time, but not at the polls. It is important to keep your signature on record current as a persons signature changes over time and signatures on record are used to verify absentee and provisional ballot certi“ cates. If a poll worker questions whether the signature on the identi“ cation you present is the same as the signature you signed in at the polls, you will be asked to “ ll out a signature a davit in order to vote a regular ballot. You can contact our Supervisor of Elections, Connie Asbell, or one of the other election representatives at: 352/486-5163; or go to the website at: votelevy.com and you can check the information available there or email a question from the site. ere are currently 24,867 registered voters in Levy County with 11,437 Democrats, 9,244 Republicans, and 4,186 other party a liations.

The Levy County Journal 3AJune 21, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyEsmeralda A Cedar Key Mystery, Part II In the Neptune bar o the lobby of the Island Hotel, an oysterman was telling his version of how the mysterious sloop Esmeralda had managed to moor without notice at the Cedar Key dock. It had appeared in the early morning mist, he growled, this boat as white as its sails, mirrored in the mist over a glassy sea. As to the enigma of the beautiful woman seen aboard in the afternoon, the oysterman had no clue. He deferred to Richard Boone, the Hollywood actor sitting there, who sometimes found seclusion among his salty, good-natured chums that did not insist he be PaladinŽ in Cedar Key. Boone had heard it told twice before that same day how this fascinating, exotic woman … attended by an olive-skinned servant girl … had stepped from her luxurious robe on deck to tan. Much was made of the womans white bathing suit and sunglasses, her “ ne “ gure and how her long, raven black tresses cascaded in a thick sheen over the coral cushions of her wicker lounge. She had spoken to no one, this mysterious woman, though at least one island swain skilled in ” irtations had addressed her directly from the dock. Still, neither she nor the pretty servant girl, nor the old captain who sailed the sloop had said a word as to who any aboard might be or why the Esmeralda had made its port of call the rustic, coastal village of Cedar Key. Boone, prizing privacy himself, had stated with sociable gru ness over his drink that, whoever EsmeraldaŽ might be, she ought to be left to her own devices and choosing, so long as she made no demands on anyone else around the key. It was in the early evening then that, curiously enough, the servant girl had arrived at the lobby to inquire of the proprietress, Bessie Gibbs, about dinner from the hotel restaurant. Shed asked in a sweet voice that cooed of French if there were plates she might take out. Hearing an a rmative reply, she ordered for three from a menu that she already seemed to know. Boone made it a half dozen cloistered in the Neptune, watching the lobby at any angle while the French girl spoke. She took three plates of seafood from a waitress, tall with golden hair braided into a hive upon her head. e plates were covered with foil and stacked with cardboard between them so the girl could “ t them “ rmly into the mesh bag shed brought for carrying. Outside the hotel two Campbell boys about her age waited on the shaded walk, resting against pillars supporting the balcony overhead. When they werent “ ghting, the two cousins were as close as any brothers working a boat together could be. eyd seen the girl go past the boat basin up to the old hotel. Enamored at once, theyd set their caps after her to the Island Hotels front door. Rather than risk being scolded by Bessie Gibbs for loitering in the lobby, they waited. So then when the girl did come out, each immediately volunteered his assistance with the plates. Absent any acknowledgement, they walked hurriedly on either side bantering along in even stride as she silently, though politely (given the hint of her smile) declined their eager attentions. en at the foot of the dock, the French girl turned suddenly and spoke. Merci. ank you,Ž she said softly. Mais, no farther please, gentle-mens,Ž she added politely with a slight bow at her petite waist. e boys looked at each other awkwardly, a bit o balance by the girl whod addressed them with such courtesy … and in French. ey waited as she asked, watching without a word between them. Her slender brown leg extended beyond the spring line to the sloop, and she went with the grace of a gazelle down into the cabin of the boat. When dark had descended over the key and small wafers of pale light bobbed at the Esmeraldas portals, a shiny black Buick nosed up Dock Street. When parked, a man got out. He didnt look like the usual tourist, this neatly mustachioed man. Dressed in a white linen suit, his combed hair was so black that it shown a deep and waxen blue in the street light as he walked directly to the dock and the Esmeralda moored there. As if he had been expected at precisely that moment, the servant girl came out. Without a word between them, the man in linen went after her down into the Esmeralda Nothing about the stranger had escaped the notice of several regulars about the dock at that hour. eyd observed him well enough to describe in detail his elegant suit and “ nely-combed hair which the night breeze did not disturb. Odd too … as if for the “ rst time … one could now hear voices from within the boat. From as far down the pier as some “ shed beside lanterns, they could hear. ere was laughter “ rst. Not gleeful, but spiteful laughter, all said, coming from the woman, not the girl. And then a mans voice was raised, shouting and cursing in Spanish, then in English, though nothing so angrily said was distinctly understood. It was certainly the man in the linen suit who shouted. Other cruisers and “ shermen within earshot showed up on their decks. Curious about the commotion, they leaned from riggings or dawdled around to hear more clearly. ere was the womans voice again, a loud if indistinguishable, lurid hiss on the night breeze. en silence. It was quiet for so long that those who had been watching murmured to others standing by that there might well be reason for alarm. en the light of an open hatch sprang up and the man dressed in linen emerged on deck to disembark. e woman was laughing again down inside. It was a loud and hideous laughter, mu ed then by the mans slamming of the hatch door. When he was back at the black Buick, the angry man lit a cigarette, shielding it from the breeze with a shaking hand. He snatched open the car door, slid inside and drove away. Back at the big dock, the Esmeralda was silent again as the Buicks taillights rapidly disappeared into the darkness of night beyond the Number 4 Bridge out of Cedar Key. At “ rst light the next morning, the old captain was back on deck making his usual inspections. en he left the Esmeralda and the dock and walked with his weathered cap low over his bushy brows, his burnished hands clasped behind his back. When he was up on 2nd Street by the bank down from the Island Hotel, Richard Boone was approaching on his usual morning walk. Coming nearer, each acknowledged the other with a nod. It occurred to Boone instantly that the battered cap and slivery brush of brows “ t precisely the description hed heard from his Neptune pals of the mystery boats captain. Boone decided the moment was too opportune to let pass, so he raised his great head to address the older man, closer now with hands still clasped behind his back. Good morning, sir,Ž the actor greeted in his rich trademark voice long seasoned by bourbon and cigars. e captain nodded pleasantly without a word, though Boone detected puzzlement in his pale blue eyes as the captain stepped obliquely from the sidewalk and crossed the street. Boone had not slackened his pace with the greeting, but kept it steady, as if conversation was never intended, and he did not look back until further along a dozen steps or so. When he did glance back, the captain was across the street leaning on a lamppost watching him intently, the stem of a lit match at a pipe clenched between his teeth. Boone reported the chance encounter to Bessie Gibbs and his drinking companions in the Neptune late that afternoon. His mention was prompted by several accounts of a second days sunbath by the mysterious  Esmeralda Ž … now her publicly-bestowed code name. Everything told on the eve of the second day was even more elaborately recounted. So detailed and “ ne were the mens descriptions that Bessie Gibbs extended a chubby hand and said enough was enough. She threatened to wheel down to the dock herself to see what all the fuss was about. Just then, the French girl entered the lobby and waited with her mesh bag dangling with washed bone china. Dinner was ordered just as before. Everything was the same, except that the Campbell cousins had just channeled in when the girl walked back out on the sun-silvered dock. e wake of their gray net boat washed the dark pilings while she strode with her fragrant banquet, warm as the late sun on her brown shoulders against the sparkling sheen over the bay out to Atsena Otie Key. at night after a brief rain, the black Buick reappeared on Dock Street. e same mustachioed man got out, although this time he wore cream-colored trousers and a baby blue guayabera shirt like Cubans down in Tampa or Miami often sported. Street-side, the rear window of the Buick lowered slowly. e man from the night before reached inside and lit a long cigarette for someone in back. ey smoked together, waiting. e others tobacco curls wafted in soft, lingering spirals from the car beaded with rain, parked beneath a neon multicolored restaurant sign. e light from the sign spilled down over the shiny car and pooled in colorful petroleum-like plumes where the driver stood waiting on the wet street. Next Week the conclusion of Esmeralda.

The Levy County Journal4AJune 21, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Random Thoughts Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateRandom oughts on the Passing Scene Many people may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because of his charisma. But anyone familiar with the disastrous track record of charismatic political leaders around the world in the 20th century should have run for the hills when they encountered a politician with charisma. What is scarier than any particular political policy or issue is the widespread tendency to treat political issues as personal contests in talking points -competitive skill in fencing with words -rather than as serious attempts to “ nd out what the facts are and what the options are. People who are wondering what to get as a graduation present this year should consider  e Passage of PowerŽ by Robert Caro, the recently published 4th volume in his monumental biography of Lyndon Johnson. Its revelations of the cynical, fraudulent and vicious politics in Washington should counter the pious graduation speeches that young people hear about the nobility of public service.Ž e new French president, a socialist, says frankly that he does not like rich people, that my real enemy is the world of “ nance,Ž and apparently he has plans for much higher tax rates on high incomes. Has he not noticed how easy it is for the rich to move to some other country where the tax rates are lower -or to send their money there? For a long time, Democrats have gone to Washington to win at all costs, while too many Republicans went to Washington to compromise with Democrats. e rise of the Tea Party may change that. Increasing numbers of people seem to have convinced themselves that they are entitled to a fair shareŽ of what someone else has earned. Whole nations now seem to think that they should be bailed out from the consequences of their own reckless spending by nations that lived within their means. ose who favor huge cuts in military spending seem not to understand that our military exists not simply to win wars, but to present such overwhelming superiority to potential enemies as to prevent having to “ ght a war in the “ rst place. Some people who are belatedly seeing what Obama is really like are saying that he has changed. is is probably easier to say than admitting that you were blind to the mans whole history before, and were taken in by his rhetoric and geniality. Wishful thinking is not idealism. It is self-indulgence at best and self-exaltation at worst. In either case, it is usually at the expense of others. In other words, it is the opposite of idealism. e visceral hostility of liberals against Sarah Palin is something that liberals themselves ought to be concerned about. After all, she is just someone who has a di erent opinion about politics and a di erent social background and style. What I fear the liberals most resent is their perception that she is someone who is talking back to her betters. When Harry Truman was President of the United States, he had a sign on his desk in the White House that said:  e buck stops here.Ž If Barack Obama had a sign on his desk, it would say:  e buck stops with Bush.Ž Does anyone seriously believe that short dresses, exposing bony knees, make women look more attractive? In most discussions of the problems of American public schools, the low intellectual quality of people who come out of our schools of education is the 800-pound gorilla that keeps getting ignored. Such teachers cannot give their students intellectual abilities that they themselves dont have. Did we have to wait for the Solyndra and other government investmentŽ disasters to learn what economic nonsense political investmentsŽ are? Reckless spending to win votes, or campaign contributions, from the recipients of government largesse is still reckless spending, regardless of what other words are used to try to dignify it -whether these words are stimulus,Ž jobs,Ž investmentŽ or whatever. In liberal logic, if life is unfair then the answer is to turn more tax money over to politicians, to spend in ways that will increase their chances of getting reelected. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMCorruptocrat Eric Holder’s GOP Enablers OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateWhile calls for U.S. Attorney General Eric StonewallŽ Holders resignation grow and the House GOP gears up for a contempt vote next week, its worth remembering how we got into this mess. In two words: feckless bipartisanship. I like Barack Obama and want to help him if I can.Ž at was Utah GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch in January 2009, just weeks before the Senate voted on President Obamas attorney general nominee, Eric Holder. Right out of the gate, upon Obamas election in November 2008, Hatch signaled that he would greenlight the administrations top law enforcer. I start with the premise that the president deserves the bene“ t of the doubt,Ž the six-term incumbent Hatch told e Hill newspaper. I dont think politics should be played with the attorney general.Ž Utah voters, mark those words. Bending to bipartisanship for bipartisanships sake -and ignoring the obvious consequences -is playing politics. And, conservatives, please remember the actions of all 19 Republican senators who ignored Holders abominable career as a political “ xer and con“ rmed him. I found Mr. Holder to be a good listener, which is an important prerequisite for any good leader,Ž Missouri GOP Sen. Kit Bond explained in support of the nomination. I believe him when he says that hes willing to take good ideas from wherever they come.Ž In addition to Hatch and Bond, the other 17 Senate Republicans who helped put Holder in place at the Justice Department were: Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Bob Bennett, R-Utah, Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., Susan Collins, R-Maine, Bob Corker, R-Tenn., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, Judd Gregg, R-N.H., Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., Richard Lugar, R-Ind., John McCain, R-Ariz., Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, Je Sessions, R-Ala., Olympia Snowe, R-Maine, Arlen Specter, R-Pa., and George Voinovich, R-Ohio. Its not like these GOP enablers werent warned over and over about Holders shady judgment and questionable ethics. e 2002 House Committee on Government Reforms report on the Clinton-era Marc Rich pardon scandal spelled out Holders willingness to put political ambition above the rule of law. en-Deputy Attorney General Holder and former White House counsel Jack Quinn, who was representing the fugitive “ nancier Rich, worked together to cut the Justice Department out of the process. e duo ensured that the Justice Department, especially the prosecutors of the Southern District of New York, did not have an opportunity to express an opinion on the Rich pardon before it was granted.Ž e report noted further that Holder failed to inform the prosecutors under him that the Rich pardon was under consideration, despite the fact that he was aware of the pardon e ort for almost two months before it was granted.Ž Holder admitted that he allowed his judgment to be overridden by crony political considerations. He told GOP senators he had learned from his mistakeŽ and that it would make him a better attorney general. But it wasnt just one mistake.Ž Holder pandered to leftist special interests in engineering clemency for 16 members of the violent terrorist groups Fuerzas Armadas de Liberacion Nacional (FALN) and Los Macheteros -linked by the FBI to more than 130 bombings and six murders. He gave the terrorists unprecedented access to phone calls and consultations as they negotiated their freedom. He hid behind executive privilege covers when asked by victims families to explain the decision process. And as a partner at Covington and Burling, the powerhouse D.C.and N.Y.based law “ rm infamous for representing Gitmo detainees, Holders opposition to the jihadi detention center raised bright red con” ict-of-interest ” ags. Is it any wonder that such a serial conniver would now be embroiled in multiple scandals involving the endangerment of national security? And that he would name old pals to run interference for him in his time of need? To investigate his departments bloody malfeasance in the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal, Holder appointed acting DOJ Inspector General Cynthia A. Schnedar. She worked under Holder in the 1990s and had co-“ led several legal briefs with him. Schnedar is in hot water for having released secret Fast and Furious audiotapes to the U.S. Attorneys O ce in Phoenix before reviewing them. e tapes somehow found their way into the hands of the local ATF o ce. Both are targets of congressional probes. To investigate self-aggrandizing White House leaks on jihadi kill lists and computer viruses targeting Irans nuclear facilities, Holder named two political appointees. One is Ronald Machen, an Obama donor, a transition team leader and a U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C., who formerly worked under Holder. Blind Democrats are outraged at questions about the independence of Holders appointees. Johnny-come-lately Republicans are demanding special prosecutors and balking at Holders arrogance, obstructionism and wanton disregard for American security and safety. Note: Two of the loudest voices belong to Sens. McCain and Graham, who both approved Holders nomination. Joseph Connor, son of FALN murder victim Frank Connor, was right. In January 2009, he spoke from pain-“ lled experience: Holder clearly does not have the judgment, character or values to be attorney general.Ž GOP surrender-ism cost more innocent lives. For the sake of the victims, let this be a lesson learned -and not repeated again.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 ere are many misconceptions and fallacies regarding the Judiciary that need to be addressed as our citizens work to restore our Republic. e most egregious among these is that the Supreme Court is to interpret the Constitution. is court only has the power to obey the constitution and nothing more. e “ rst sentence of Article I in our Constitution states, All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congressƒ.Ž All’ means that no other branch has this legitimate power. e courts shall not legislate and executive orders can only apply to the executive branch. is disquali“ es what is known as case law or judicial legislation. e courts have no enforcement powers over the states or the other federal branches, as President Andrew Jackson once made clear. e Judicial Branch of our Republic is clearly the weakest branch of our government; the appellate powers of the court are limited by the Congress, meaning that this court shall have removed from its jurisdiction anything the Congress chooses. e Supreme Court Justices have appointments on good behavior but can and have been impeached by Congress. It is notable that there is an inverse relationship in our Republic on the application of length of term and granted power. e Judicial Branch retains the longest terms and the least amount of power; conversely the House of Representatives wields the greatest power with the shortest term. All lower federal courts are a creation of Congress which can be abolished, and it would be desirable to limit federal intervention into the sovereign states. ese limitations were made quite clear by Madison in Federalist #48 and Hamilton in Federalist #78, that the judicial branch is clearly the weakest in our federal compact. Another fallacy regards the power of jury trials. e concept of a jury trial predates our Republic, with the concept going back to biblical times. No one individual should be granted the authority to determine the fate of another; therefore a jury of peers was a device to determine the case as well as the validity of the law. Every law is on trial as well as the case in all jury trials. Juries are the most powerful component in our judicial system wielding greater power than the judge. e government cannot enforce any law without the consent of the jury. is concept rests on the fact that the laws of nature’ are a higher law than any law created by man, and was established in 1776 as a lesson worldwide to all despotic governments. e power of the jury in most cases has been usurped by lawless judges tampering with juries. Samuel Chase, a Supreme Court justice and original signer of the Declaration of Independence was impeached for tampering with a jury and barely retained his judgeship by a close vote in the Senate. Numerous Supreme Court justices and constitutional scholars concur that the law is also on trial in every jury trial, and this point is made quite clear in the words of Harlan F. Stone, 12th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. In 1941, Justice Stone said,  e law itself is on trial quite as much as the cause which is to be decided.Ž Patriotic Americans must always attempt to be selected when called for jury duty, but must never divulge this correct understanding of our judicial system because despotic judges are not willing to allow any threat to their unconstitutional power in their courtrooms. Americans actually have four votes; one with the ballot, two and three by petit and grand juries and four, voting with the wallet. is “ nal economic vote should be used to divest from businesses and individuals that attempt to subvert our laws for personal gain or those that support socialist candidates.

Whether it is at home or in the o ce printers are used for a variety of purposes ranging from printing coupons for shopping to printing reports for the boss. So when they do not want to work it is hard not to panic. ough we do not perform hardware repair on printers, often printers stop working due to communication or networking issues between the computer and printer, which we do repair. Below are a few suggestions for troubleshooting your printer that hopefully will be quick and easy the next time your printer wants to throw up a big Stop Sign in the middle of your busy day. First, make sure your printer cables are “ rmly plugged into the electrical outlet as well as into the computer. A wireless printer will be plugged into the electrical outlet and receive a signal from the wireless router. Next, check that the surge protectors and battery backups are turned on and functioning properly. Once you know that everything is set up correctly, check for any blinking or di erent colored lights. is may indicate possible printer errors ranging from paper jams, low ink or toner, to more severe printer issues. For a simple paper jam, you can check all access doors available, the paper drawer, where paper feeds into the printer, toner door, and in some printers, a door at the back of the printer and remove any paper that you “ nd. Blinking lights may also indicate low toner or possibly the need for a replacement drum, either of which you may have to replace. You may be able to identify and solve many of the issues by checking out the manual for your speci“ c printer. Once you have taken care of any known issues, see if you can print a test page click on the start button at the bottom left corner of your screen, and left click on Devices and Printers.Ž You should see your printer in the list under Printers and FaxesŽ and it should have a green check on the icon (picture of your printer) indicating that it is set as your default printer. You then right click on your default printer, scroll down to and select printer properties and then right click on the test page button. If your test page prints, your printer is now ready to work. If you still cannot print, or your printer is missing from the list mentioned above, you will need to reinstall it using the Installation CD that came with the printer (Just a quick tip: Before running the installation program, unplug the USB printer connection to the computer until the printer reinstallation program tells you to plug it back in). If your printer is listed, but it is still not printing, depending on your operating system, you should be able to right click on your printer icon and click on troubleshoot,Ž which will try to identify the issue and o er suggestions for “ xing it. e last thing that you will need to check would be the drivers for the printer to ensure they are up to date. You can usually check the drivers by visiting the printers manufacturer website. Go to the download site and locate your printer. is will provide you with the drivers and any other software downloads needed to run the printer properly. If you are still experiencing issues after following these steps you may need to contact your preferred technical support or give us a call.

The Levy County Journal6AJune 21, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 by Lisa Statham Posteraro At the recent Williston Elementary School 5th grade graduation ceremony, two young people were awarded scholarships to the College of Central Florida. Kimberly Chavez and Juaquin Mendoza were the recipients of the S.T.E.P.S. Scholarship. On hand to present these were George Isaacs and Pamela Calero, the coordinator of annual funds at CCF. Scholarships Taking Elementary Promising Students (STEPS) is a unique investment in higher education. It is a college scholarship opportunity that is awarded to an elementary school student. Each year a donor-adopted school, which WES is, selects a deserving “ fthgrade student to receive a STEPS award. Upon graduating from high school, having remained drug and crime free and demonstrating continued academic achievement, the STEPS recipient will receive $4,000 for tuition and fees at the College of Central Florida. To fully adopt the school and provide a scholarship for a boy and girl student is $20,000, which establishes two endowed scholarships at the adopted elementary school. e two endowed scholarships are both awarded each year in perpetuity. Donors may also elect to establish an initial scholarship for one student at the selected school for a $10,000 commitment. A $20,000 gift enables the donor to fully adopt the selected school making a scholarship available to a “ fth grade boy and girl. Following graduation, Calero met with family representatives of the two students to sign the mandatory paperwork. I think these two are great choices,Ž said Jeanne DuBois, Juaquins teacher and facilitator for the 5th grade team. We wish both students continued success!Ž (Kimberly was in Serena iessens class.) e students names will be engraved on the plaque in the schools front o ce.

If Kimberly continues to meet all the criteria throughout her schooling, she will receive $4000 for tuition and fees at CCF after graduating from high school. A proud Juaquin Mendoza, a recent 5th grade graduate of Williston Elementary School, stands with family members Moises and Tomasa Mendoza, his brother and mother, and his aunt, Gloria Olivas. Juaquin also received a S.T.E.P.S. scholarship which he may use when he enters the College of Central Florida upon graduation from high school. Juaquin and Kimberly were nominated by their teachers.

Farmers and ranchers in the area continue to take a leading role in outstanding natural resource management. Twenty-two Suwannee River Basin agriculturists will be recognized for their sustained e orts with a County Alliance for Responsible Stewardship (CARES) award during a dinner meeting on June 28. e event will be held at the UF/IFAS North Florida Research and Education Center … Suwannee Valley Live Oak. CARES … the County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship … was founded by Florida Farm Bureau in 2001 and the Suwannee River Partnership to recognize superior natural resource conservation by agricultural producers. e program has now honored more than 450 agriculturists throughout the state. e fundamental component of the program is the voluntary action by farmers and ranchers to implement state-of-the-art natural resource management systems on their properties. e e ectiveness of these systems has been con“ rmed by outside experts. According to the Suwannee River Water Management District, for example, the voluntary implementation of such systems by agriculturists in the basin saves at least one billion gallons of water each growing season. In partnership with more than 60 public agencies, including the U.S. Department of Agricultures Natural Resource and Conservation Service, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Floridas water management districts, agricultural organizations, businesses and local government, CARES has become a model for the rest of the nation. Florida farmers and ranchers depend upon the life-sustaining capacity of the natural resources they manage to maintain their livelihoods. More than 500 agriculturists statewide have received the CARES award in the past decade. Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick will join Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam to present CARES awards at the dinner. e awards event will begin with a dinner at 6 p.m. e site of the UF/IFAS facility is located approximately six miles east of Live Oak on Highway 136 in Suwannee County. Florida Farm Bureau is the Sunshine State's largest general agricultural organization with more than 140,000 memberfamilies representing Farm Bureaus in 60 counties. Membership provides a multitude of bene“ ts and you don't have to be a farmer to be a member of Florida Farm Bureau.

Before he was even “ nished asking, I was already setting about to put a halt to that nonsense. If he was thinking Id endorse such a plan in front of his wife, he was sadly mistaken. Before he could safely drag her o beyond earshot Id barraged them with at least a half dozen tales of the near death encounters Id experienced as a kid on my little Honda XR-75. e one that “ nally caused her to gasp and give him the look was the story of the time I was scooting along on a loose Mississippi gravel road with my little brother Heath on back. e following re-telling brings shivers up my spine too: Heath had been whining that morning about having to wear his head protection. He complained he looked goofy in my old football helmetsaid the mouthpiece tasted funny. (Maybe Id called him hard-headed so long he was starting to believe it.) Anyway, I had to end up agreeing to wear my helmet too before hed hush. Within minutes we were cruising miles from home; way too far out really, considering wed been told to stay in the yard. Its not like we had any place to be either. Of course, we had that little engine wound out on the o chance we might need to get there quick. (People had always told us we were headed nowhere fast.) Despite the squirrelly handling the motorcycle was exhibiting on the fresh gravel, we couldnt bring ourselves to slow down. We loved to feel the wind on our faces, even if we were collecting more bugs in our teeth than a voracious Venus ” y-trap on vacation in the Everglades. Everything was peachy, at least until we rolled up on that sudden ninety degree turn! I screamed, and stomped the brake. e bike screamed, and began to hydroplane. Heath screamed, and squeezed my breakfast clear back up to my tonsils. I fought a power slide for the next forty or “ fty feet, and then made the executive decision to lay it over. Our only alternative was to hit the oncoming ditch at full speed. We left the road sideways, and both tires slammed into the far bank at the same time. e resulting jolt catapulted us like wed been shot out of a giant slingshot. Im not sure how far we actually ” ew, but I reckon it probably rivaled some of the previous man-” ight records of the day. We came down with a heavy plop in a muddy soybean “ eld, side by side, face down. When I came to I was spitting mud and spitting mad. I looked at Heath and my “ rst thought was, Why is that dummy wearing his chin strap across his forehead?Ž Heath had this big blank stare on his face like he was in shock. I followed his gaze and found we were both staring right into the business end of a rusty old plow. Its razor sharp disks mere inches from our foreheads. Helmets or not, another foot and our hard heads wouldve been sliced thinner than a honey baked ham! But anywayI believe if some of youd take the time you might see yourself in this story. Maybe youve rejected the “ rm foundation of Gods Word and built your life on loose gravel? Now you “ nd yourself far from home and headed nowhere fast. Your life is hydroplaning out of control. Stop being so hard-headed! Get o that squirrelly path before you run into the sudden 90 degree turn of judgment and reap what youve been sowing. Turn to the Lord. He is merciful and will show you a better way. (I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Psalms 40:1-2 NLT) Take some advice from a guy whos seen the blades of the reaper up close. Put on the helmet of Gods salvation o ered through His son Jesus Christ.

As the weather has heated up, so too have Floridas alligator and crocodile activities, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds Floridians and visitors to be cautious when having fun in and around water. Florida is home to two native crocodilians: the American alligator, which is found in all 67 counties; and the American crocodile, which may be found in coastal areas of the Keys and in southeast and southwest Florida. Both species have shared Floridas waters with people for centuries. e FWC recommends keeping pets away from the water. ere are other precautionary measures people should take to reduce the chances for con” icts with alligators and crocodiles, and they are available in the Living with Alligators brochure at MyFWC.com/Alligator and the Living with Crocodiles brochure at MyFWC.com/Crocodile. e FWC advises, if you have concerns with an alligator or crocodile that poses a threat to you, your pets or property, call the FWCs Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286). Alligators and crocodiles are an important part of Floridas heritage and play a valuable role in the ecosystems where they live. For more information on alligators and crocodiles, visit MyFWC.com/Alligator. Warm Weather Means Active Alligators and CrocodilesLast year, nine people died from boating accidents related to alcohol and drug use in Florida. at represents 13 percent of the states fatalities for 2011. Alcoholand drug-related boating accidents are preventable,Ž said Capt. Tom Shipp, of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Boating and Waterways Section. Even one death is too many.Ž at is why law enforcement agencies around the state and country are participating in Operation Dry WaterŽ this weekend. is nationwide public-education e ort is designed to prevent alcohol-related accidents and fatalities. FWC o cers, along with local law enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard, will crack down on boating under the in” uence (BUI) violations. While our o cers always look for BUIs,Ž Shipp said, this weekend, they are making a special e ort to stop this dangerous activity.Ž the inaugural year for this e ort WAS 2009 and the programs e ectiveness made repeating it worthwhile. Law enforcement agencies in all 50 states and several U.S. territories typically participate, interacting with tens of thousands of boaters throughout the weekend each year and taking hundreds of impaired operators o the water before they could kill or injure themselves or someone else. We know that increased o cer e ort reduces boating accidents and saves lives. Saving lives is what Operation Dry Water is really all about,Ž Shipp said. e FWC reminds boaters to be careful this weekend. Boaters who have had too much to drink or who are impaired by drugs are a great danger to the boating public. Being under the in” uence of alcohol or drugs impairs a boat operators vision and reaction time,Ž Shipp said. Sun, wind, fatigue and other conditions can intensify the e ects alcohol or drugs have on a boater.Ž Intoxicated boaters are also susceptible to injuries or falling overboard because of impaired coordination and balance. If youre caught boating under the in” uence, you may be “ ned and jailed, your boat may be seized, and you could lose your boating privileges,Ž Shipp said. But most importantly, you are risking your life, the lives of your passengers and the lives of other people out on the water.Ž e FWC reminds boaters that they are responsible for making decisions that keep themselves and others safe. We want everyone to have a great time and stay safe on the water,Ž Shipp said. Carelessly choosing to operate a boat while impaired is a decision that can result in a tragic ending to an otherwise wonderful day on the water.Ž For more information, please visit www.operationdrywater. org or MyFWC.com/Boating.

Personal Locator Beacons (Credit: NOAA) Additionally, o cials with NOAA's Search and Rescue Satellite-Aided Tracking System (COSPAS-SARSAT) are urging beacon owners to review the registration and identi“ cation numbers for their devices before their excursions. "It's critical for beacon owners to check this information and make sure their phone numbers and an emergency point of contact are included, so “ rst responders can act without delay," said Chris O'Connors, NOAA's SARSAT program manager. By law, all emergency locator beacons must be registered with NOAA. To register or update a registration, visit http://www.sarsat.noaa.gov/beacon.html. O'Connors added that beacon owners planning a trip can provide their itinerary in the additional data “ eld of the registration information. "Having this knowledge is invaluable for rescuers and can drastically cut down the time it takes to save a life." SARSAT is a high-tech system that uses a network of satellites to quickly detect and locate distress signals from emergency beacons onboard aircraft, boats and from handheld personal locator beacons. When a satellite pinpoints a distress signal within the United States, or its surrounding waters, the information is relayed to the SARSAT Mission Control Center, at NOAA's Satellite Operations Facility in Suitland, Md. e information is then sent to a Rescue Coordination Center, operated by either the U.S. Air Force, for land rescues, or the U.S. Coast Guard, for maritime rescues. Now in its 30th year of operation, SARSAT has been credited with more than 30,000 rescues worldwide, including more than 6,830 in the United States and its surrounding waters. NOAA's mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources.
