By Kelsi Alexander, Chie and Sr. FFAOn June 25th members of the Chie” and Sr. FFA Chapter headed out on a yellow bus with Advisor Dallas Locke behind the wheel with one thing on their mind, arriving in Orlando, Florida at the 84th State FFA Convention. It wasnt only the ride down that was “ lled with many laughs and fun memories, but the whole trip. e Sr. Chapter represented Chie” and well. We are pleased to announce that we had four teams recognized for “ nishing in the top “ ve of the state: € Agriculture Communication … Hailey Bason, Kelsi Alexander and James Corbin; € Aquaculture … Kira Telgen, Matt Morgan, Wyatt Plemmons and Seth Tummonds; € Food Science … Sarah Edison, Meagan Morgan, Kira Telgen and Sumer Toler; € Livestock Judging … Rheba She eld, Emily Smith, Payton Parnell and Harold Tillis. We also had four members walk the stage as “ nalists for the Pro“ ciency Award. € Leanna Gri n … Forage Production; € Harold Tillis … Fiber and Oil Crop; € Kody Plemmons … Wildlife Management; € Cason NesSmith … Outdoor Recreation. Chie” and Sr. also had individuals that were able to show their passion for FFA. Two members, Sarah Edison and Sydney Stephens, entered in the Agriscience Fair where Sydney won 1st place and Sarah came in 3rd place. Also, Harold Tillis represented Chie” and in the Stars over Florida Pageant as a “ nalist for the State Star Greenhand. On June 29th as members of the Chie” and Sr. FFA Chapter loaded up the bus to leave Orlando it was a bittersweet moment. Many of the students were able to see all their hard work pay o as they walked across the stage to support FFA and represent their hometown. For all of these students we would like to say, Congratulations and never stop leaving your legacy!Ž Levy County Voters Busy Changing Parties Before July 16 to Vote in Republican Primary By Kathy HilliardEditorFlorida is a closed primary state and this year the Primary election is on August 4, 2012. e deadline to register to vote or change party a liation is July 16. If you wish to vote in the Primary Election, you must be a registered voter of 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). According to Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbells o ce, as of July 9 there have been 1,211 registered voters who have changed their party a liation including 883 Democrats who have gone Republican. In Levy County there are now 24,962 registered voters with 11,186 Democrats, 9.578 Republicans, 2,890 No Party voters and 1,303 Other voters. Even if you have changed your party a liation in order to vote for a candidate of your choice in the Primary Election, once the General Election comes around you can vote for whomever you please no matter what the party a liation. If a local 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 local candidates are Democrats 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 all candidates but one that are of one party, as in our sheri s race in Levy County, exception being the one non partisan candidate, then the non partisan candidate has no opponents in the primary and will not even be on the ballot in the Primary Election. at leaves only Republicans to vote for the Republican candidates in the primary. When it comes time for the general election, the non partisan candidate 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. If your strategy is to change party a liation in order to vote for the candidate you want in the primary so you can vote for them in the General Election … the deadline for that change is July 16, 2012. You cannot make a party a liation change at the polls and be able to vote as having changed your party. e change will not take e ect until after the Primary Election.Pick your poison, but before the deadline of Monday July 16.Bronson HS FFAs Lily Blackburn Awarded TSC ScholarshipChie and Sr. FFA Racks Up Awards at 84th FFA Convention Chie and Sr. FFA members, l to r Hailey Bason, James Corbin and Kelsi Alexander.

Each year, students from the tri-county area apply to work alongside the forester, the rangers, heavy equipment operators, and the “ re“ ghters in order to get a taste of some of the best jobs the area has to o er. While earning money for their labor, they also are exposed to the hundreds of great careers the US Fish and Wildlife Service has to o er nationwide. is year, a pair of cousins from Old Town, and two Chie” and students have been working across the Refuge maintaining recreation sites for visitors. Projects coming up will provide seating, a bulletin board, and informative signs for visitors to Shell Mound. eyll also add a front porch to the Refuge classroom, enhance Dennis Creek foot bridges, and help with kids outdoor programs. Joshua Roberts who has been volunteering at the Lower Suwannee NWR for nearly two years says, I was shocked to “ nd out that I was chosen and so far I love the job.Ž Paying-itforward really paid-o for Joshua. It took two weeks for us to hear, so I thought I wasnt getting the job. I was surprised when Ranger Pam called with the o er,Ž stated Elizabeth Okahara. She had “ rst met the Ranger years ago at Whispering Winds School as a fourth grader and most recently at Chie” and High Schools Career Day where she obtained the job application. e Youth Conservation Corps has made several sightings of wildlife including bobcats, alligators, swallow-tailed kites, and barred owls. While preparing recreation sites for the rising waters of the oncoming storm last week, two of the YCC were irresistibly drawn to the high wind and the rush of rising waters. Working outdoors in the midst of natures glory is one of the bene“ ts Refuge sta experience on a regular basis.  is gets their foot in the door,Ž says heavy equipment operator and crew boss, Jason Coates.  ere are hundreds of US Fish and Wildlife Service entry jobs across the country available to bright graduates; we hope to aim these students in that direction.Ž YCC 2012: Cheyenne Stemple, Elizabeth Okahara, Eli Long, and Joshua Roberts taking a break at Salt Creek, near Suwannee Oz Barker Gives Thanks Veteran Dogs Need Our Help

The Levy County Journal 3AJuly 12, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyThe NumbersSporty Rey was not his real name, but its a name close enough, and this is told true enough that some folks around Tampa will “ nd the man familiar. He was a lean, clean-cut little fellow who drove a black 49 Buick with a front grill brandishing a big chrome smirk. ough the sedan was secondhand, it was immaculate and waxed with a shine as “ ne as the day he “ rst drove it up to his red brick bungalow o Swan Avenue. Appearances mattered to Sporty. He was smartly dressed, neatly pressed, and precise in knotting his tie. ere was just enough ” ash to make neighbors wonder if he was really an insurance man. Maybe it was the cocky way he wore his panama hat. Maybe it was those two-toned shoes that raised suspicions that he might be a wise guy,Ž one of the Tampa underworld. Maybe he was connected with Charlie Wall, dean of Tampas crime bosses; some of Charlies minions drove Buicks and dressed like that. Wall, a Tampa native, had lorded over a rampant crime syndicate for decades. He operated out of Ybor, a working class Cuban neighborhood dominated by cigar workers. Wall bootlegged liquor, ran brothels and virtually monopolized the bolita games in the area. His organization was expansive, extending eventually into what was called the Cracker Ma“ a,Ž with operations spanning central Florida. en there were the Italian Ma“ osi, the Tra cante family, steadily encroaching on Walls Tampa turf. Days of reckoning and nights of retribution were already common in Tampa, where from 1928 to 1959 (known locally as the Era of Blood), more than 25 gangland “ gures were gunned down. Perhaps as many more became food for the “ shes.Ž So there were plenty of gangsters around Tampa in the early 1950s, but this Sporty Rey, he was an insurance man, and thats all he was. He was just a guy with a pencil thin mustache, a debit book, and a pretty wife shy to the point of being misperceived by the neighbors as conceited or snobbish. She wasnt. Sporty wasnt in the rackets either, at least not yet. Weekdays Sporty would slide into his shiny Buick and disappear up Swan, turn on Nebraska and then go who knows where. Folks out in Temple Terrace and Brandon knew where. See, Sporty worked the small towns and mostly poorer neighborhoods in the area … the groves, the turpentine woods, some of the cattle ranches or sawmills. In the towns, hed park up a narrow street in the shade and walk door-to-door collecting on small insurance policies hed sold. Most were burial premiums, so maybe he collected a dollar or so a month at each stop. It was a volume business, and Sporty stayed on the move. But there was an older black woman over in Brandon who was one of his favorites. A large, moon-faced woman with an easy laugh, she shared her deep, abiding faith whenever she spoke. Sipping a glass of sweet tea on her front porch was about as close to church as Sporty Rey ever got. ey were friends. ey never said so, but they were. Her name was Emma Jakes. Emma was the “ rst person Sporty informed that his wife had left him. On a recent spring morning, while a neighbor leaned into his push mower, Ilene Rey stood very erect out on her front porch in a black, sleeveless dress and a small suitcase at her feet. When the neighbor looked up again, she was gone. e roof of a yellow cab disappeared behind a line of hedge. ered been no argument, no indiscretion discovered, and no note. At least thats what Sporty told Emma. Emma o ered Sporty comfort while her own beloved husband lay gasping with each labored breath in the dark heat of the house behind them. e next month, Sporty got around to telling Emma he now had more than insurance to sell. Bolita tickets were stashed in his account book. Emma eyed Sporty with caution. en she had a confession of her own. With her husband out of work and her own health failing, hard labor was impossible. She couldnt continue to make the insurance payment on her husbands policy. As for buying a bolita ticket, Nobody really wins but them bolita bankers,Ž Emma sighed, and the devil, hes the biggest banker of them all.Ž Months passed. Sporty never missed his regular visit with Emma. ey talked. It was a game between them to forecast the next rain. It hadnt rained in a long time. ey never again spoke of insurance or the numbers, though. And this was probably a good thing. In the basic bolita game, 100 small numbered balls were placed into a bag and mixed thoroughly. Bets were taken on which number would be drawn. ere were many variations on this theme and many di erent games. Bets were typically small and sometimes sold well in advance. Fact is, most games were rigged. Sometimes extra balls of a given number were included. Sometimes certain balls werent in the bag at all. Some games cheated by including balls “ lled with lead that sank to the bottom of the bag, improving the odds on those numbers. Sometimes selected balls were iced beforehand, so they were cold and easy for the selector to “ nd by touch. Anyway, there have always been as many tricks as games. In Sportys time, the biggest game was out of Cuba. Somewhere in Havana was a rack of one hundred ivory balls, each with a number laid sequentially in a mahogany rack. All the numbers were there to see. e balls were then gathered out of the rack and dropped into a black velvet bag. e bag was shaken vigorously and ” ung about until tossed “ nally to a catcher,Ž one of the onlookers. e catcher would isolate a single ball and, with the aid of a knife, slit the bag to extract the ball bearing the winning number. Back across the Florida Straits, some “ ve hundred miles away in a small cabin on a lake out in the orange groves, Sporty and a bespectacled associate, Ambrose Endecott, hovered around a short-wave radio. Endecott was a locally respected man with a large grove and small grocery on the highway, but hed fallen on hard times and desperate measures. Together they listened to a broadcast of the Cuban National Lottery. e winning number would soon be announced, and Rey would translate. It was Endecotts task to check the hitŽ or winning number against the tickets purchased for that game. A bolita operation took four individuals, each performing a particular function: the operatorŽ or banker who “ nanced the operation; the writerŽ who sold the tickets; the pickupŽ man who brought the tickets in from the writers. Hed put them in a paper bag and drop them o at a designated spot made known to the checker.Ž Each Saturday afternoon Endecott would retrieve the bag of tickets from above the false ceiling in the privy behind his store. On this hot August evening, Sporty and Endecott leaned toward the short wave listening for the winning numbers. e two men didnt know it, but elsewhere Charlie Walls wife had just come home to “ nd Charlie dead on the ” oor of their bedroom, his throat slashed, skull fractured and his face a bloody pulp. As the short wave crackled, the door to the isolated cabin suddenly crashed in. Down in Havana the catcher had not made the slit in the bag before machine gun blasts riddled the interior of the cabin. en it was quiet. Even the screeching of startled cranes rising from the lake outside went silent. Some days later, a burly man with a crew cut ambled up the front steps of Emma Jakes place. It was about the same time of day Sporty usually came by. Emma watched the stranger through the screened door. He was sweating profusely and mopping his bald head with a handkerchief. Mrs. Jakes,Ž he said, Im the fellow took Sporty Reys place.Ž She remained secluded behind the screen door and didnt speak. Im sorry for your loss, Mrs. Jakes, on your husband. I brung you his death bene“ t.Ž He extended an envelope from his shirt pocket. I didnt pay that. Had to drop it,Ž she replied softly. Noum it was paid in full, 100%, Mrs. Jakes. is here check is yours. is one, too,Ž he said while extracting a second envelope from the same pocket. What would that be?Ž she asked with a tremulous voice. Sporty Reys, Mrs. Jakes. Its a good bit more than the other; I didnt know if you knew you was named? Ž It began to rain.

The Levy County Journal4AJuly 12, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Jobs Versus Net Jobs Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateOne of the reasons for the popularity of political rhetoric is that everybody can be right, in terms of their own rhetoric, no matter how much the rhetoric of one side contradicts the rhetoric of the other side. President Obama constantly repeats how many millions of jobs have been created during his administration, while his critics constantly repeat how many millions of jobs have been lost during his administration. How can both of them be right -or, at least, how can they both get away with what they are saying? ere are jobs and there are net jobs. is is true not only today but has been true in years past. Back during the 1980s, when there were huge losses of jobs in the steel industry, the government restricted the importation of foreign steel. It has been estimated that this saved 5,000 jobs in the American steel industry. But of course restriction of competition from lower-priced imported steel made steel more expensive to American producers of products containing steel. erefore the price of these products rose, making them less in demand at these higher prices, causing losses of sales at home and in the world market. e bottom line is that, while 5,000 jobs were saved in the American steel industry, 26,000 jobs were lost in American industries that produced products made of steel. On net balance, the country lost jobs by restricting the importation of steel. None of this was peculiar to the steel industry. Restrictions on the importation of sugar are estimated to have cost three times as many jobs in the confection industry as they saved in the sugar industry. e arti“ cially high price of sugar in the United States led some American producers of confections to relocate to Mexico and Canada, where the price of sugar is lower. ere is no free lunch in the job market, any more than there is anywhere else. e government can always create particular jobs or save particular jobs, but that does not mean that it is a net creation of jobs or a net saving of jobs. e government can create a million jobs tomorrow, just by hiring that many people. But where does the government get the money to pay those people? From the private economy -which loses the money that the government gains. With less money in the private sector, the loss of jobs there can easily exceed the million jobs created in the government or in industries subsidized by the government. e Obama administrations creation of green jobsŽ has turned out to cost far more money per job than the cost of creating a job in the private sector. In addition to reducing jobs in the private sector by taking money out of the private sector to pay for government-subsidized jobs, the Obama administration has made businesses reluctant to hire because of the huge uncertainties it has created for businesses as regards the cost of adding employees. With thousands of regulations still being written to implement ObamaCare, no one knows how much this will add to the cost of hiring new employees. In the face of this economic uncertainty, even businesses that have an increased demand for their products can meet that demand by working their existing employees overtime, instead of adding new employees. Many employers hire temporary workers, who are not legally entitled to bene“ ts such as health insurance, and who will therefore not be a ected by the cost of ObamaCare. When President Obama boasts of the number of jobs created during his administration, the numbers he cites may be correct, but he doesnt count the other jobs that were lost during his administration. His critics cite the latter. Both can claim to be right because they are talking about di erent things. What has been the net e ect? During this administration, the proportion of the working age population that has a job has fallen to the lowest level in decades. e o cial unemployment rate does not count the millions of people who have simply given up looking for a job. If everybody gave up looking for a job, the o cial unemployment rate would fall to zero. But that would hardly mean that the problem was solved or that the stimulusŽ worked. Creating particular jobs does not mean a net increase in jobs. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 By Kathy HilliardEditorBack in February of 2011 we heard and read rumors of the Obama Administration hiring an army of new IRS agents. Of course, at that time most “ gured that the new Obama Tax Crew was going to make sure that those procrastinators who have been putting o the inevitable would “ nally have to come up with the cash for their income taxes and penalties, except, of course, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner who paid the tax and interest but got the penalty waived. But now we know the real truth. Chief Justice John Roberts opened up the Truth Box and called ObamaCare what it was … a gigantic tax scheme which will require hiring scads more IRS agents to enforce. e truth has “ nally caught up and now we have con“ rmation of what Obama and crew knew all along but did not want to say … that nasty little word, tax. e newly hired agents now have job security at the expense of American taxpayers buying health care. e House Ways and Means Committee sta including the outspoken Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), have formulated and estimated that up to 6,500 new IRS personnel will be needed to examine, audit and collect the new tax information on families and small businesses mandated by the new A ordable Care Act regulations. I wonder who came up with the name A ordableŽ Care Act? According to Brady, this is the largest expansion of agents since Franklin D. Roosevelt “ rst started withholding taxes from our income. When most people think of health care reform they think of more doctorss exams, not more IRS exams,Ž said Congressman Brady. We need thousands of new doctors and nurses in America not thousands more IRS agents.Ž Fox Business Channels very lively and passionate Stuart Varney expounded on some statistics that will make you feel very ill. e new mandate at our doorstep has 21 di erent tax increases that total about $400 billion hidden from our view at the moment but there will be plenty of agents to make sure we see them in the future so they can collect. Every penny that comes into the household will have to be accounted for and health care plans must be government-approved and proved. In some scenarios written about on an unending array of articles on the internet even the money made at the kids lemonade stand will require reporting, that is, if the city ordinances did not close them down for lack of a permit or occupational license. Worse yet is that the IRS has hired workers that are just plain old debt collectors making 25 percent commissions on gathering up the baskets of taxes. With an incentive like that, you now can see why they are so insistent, rude and frankly, dont give a damn, as Rhett Butler of Gone with the Wind fame would put it. Does it all make sense now? Did Chief Justice Roberts do us a favor. I think yes. Not only do we need to remove Obama but also any representative that deals in collective and socialist agendas. is is not about feelings, it is about freedom. Wait till you see how you feel when your freedom is taken away. No matter how they couch it as being something good for us, it is an unprecedented power and money grab utilizing the IRS and a new plethora of taxes. And they knew this all along, as I suspect Roberts also surmised and took the chance in exposing it for all to see. In the words of the great C. S. Lewis in God in the Dock: Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. e robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.ŽLetter to EditorIRS – the ObamaCare Agent of Change without Hopecontinued on page 5A by Jack Tymann at NewsBalance.comIn his opinion Chief Justice Roberts stated It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.Ž Herein rests both the reason for and the solution to Roberts unexpected ruling. While now vili“ ed by conservatives across America, Roberts may be not a goat but a hero. By siding with and then negotiating the best possible deal with the Courts liberals, Roberts has placed both Obama and ObamaCare in jeopardy … simultaneously. With Roberts writing the majority opinion, the four liberal judges automatically agreed with him. ey actually ruled that the ObamaCare mandate, relative to the Commerce Clause, is unconstitutional. is means Congress cant compel American citizens to purchase anything. Not ever. e notion is now o cially and forever … unconstitutional. As it should be. Next, without the ability to mandate, to fund ObamaCare going forward Congress must rely on its power to tax. erefore, any mechanism that funds any part of ObamaCare must be a tax. is means that the Senate can overturn any ObamaCare funding, or eventually ObamaCare in total, with a simple majority of 51 votes. Recall back during the initial ObamaCare battles, the Democrats and President Obama repeatedly consistently soft…sold it as a penalty, insisting it was not a tax. But when the Administration argued in front of the Supreme Court, they said hey, a penalty or a tax, either way … your callŽ. So, Roberts responded well it cant be a penalty under the Commerce Clause, so its a taxŽ. And now its a tax, beyond word…play, denials, or silly shenanigans. ObamaCare must be funded by tax dollars. roughout the 2012 election cycle, Democrats must now defend 21 hidden tax…hikes, 16,000 new IRS agents, hundreds of new job…killing agencies and regulations, $500B stolen from Medicare, and the largest tax increase in US history; all in the face of high unemployment and a $16T national debt. Next the Supreme Court struck down as unconstitutional the ObamaCare idea that the federal government can bully states into complying by yanking their Medicaid funding. e Administration, through ObamaCare, were basically telling the states: comply with ObamaCare or well stop your Medicaid fundingŽ. Roberts and two liberal judges joined four conservatives in ruling that a no…no. By a 7 to 2 vote the Court told the Feds that they cant tell a state how to run their healthcare programs, and if any state refuses one type of money, the federal government cant penalize that state by yanking other funding. erefore, a state can decline to participate in ObamaCare, without penalty. In summary, Roberts and his teamŽ of liberals ruled that the government cannot force citizens to purchase products or services under the Commerce Clause. And Roberts manipulated the liberal judges to come clean and admit that ObamaCare must be funded by tax increases. Finally they supported states rights by limiting the federal governments power over the states. And this has been done without creating a civil war. e Democrats are happily declaring victory in the Supreme Court battle, not understanding what really been done. Because this decision, while not guaranteeing a Romney victory, has energized Americas conservative base, along with millions of centrists and independents, to get out and vote Republican in November. e 2nd American Revolution continues; this struggle a bloodless one, to be ultimately won at the ballot box. ose who understand this are the Founding Fathers of this second revolution. And they will now work even more tirelessly to see Republicans win back the White House, take back the Senate, increase their advantage in the House, and then repeal ObamaCare early in 2013. If ObamaCare had been ruled unconstitutional by 5…4 vote … this would have plagued our nation for decades; like other 5…4 votes in history; and like the Founding Fathers failure to abolish slavery by a single vote on several occasions. Justice Roberts has placed the future of ObamaCare is in our hands, in the hands of we the peopleŽ, where it properly belongs. And with the Supreme Court ruling, the probability of Congressional ObamaCare repeal has increased … signi“ cantly. Furthermore, the probability has increased for several new conservative young Supreme Court justices in the next four years … one replacing Scalia who really wants to leave. Charles Krauthammer calls the Roberts opinion one of the great constitutional “ nesses of all timeŽ. ank you Justice Roberts. Brilliant! Its interesting to note that both the majority and dissenting opinions clearly highlight, for historians, that the unmitigated disastrous 2700 page bill signed into law in 2010 is irrational, contradictory, unworkable, and dysfunctional. Both opinions point out several places where the bill says diametrically opposed things. Neither opinion shows even a shred of respect for the governments legal acumen in their briefs, nor do either in any way suggest ObamaCare is anything other than bad policy. On balance, the decision is a victory for constitutionally limited government. And it drags progressives out from behind their pretense of compassion and virtue, focusing Americans on cost and tax realities rather than the illusion of free bene“ tsŽ. What is now left for ObamaCare going forward is either total repeal or a series of unrelenting problems, countless lawsuits, and in fact mass confusion. Were going to have a number of states, perhaps half, opting out of ObamaCare … so any idea of a nationalŽ health…care program is dead. Even if the Democrats miraculously prevail in November, they will face a

A few weeks ago we wrote about a Trojan virus called DNSChanger and let you know about the possibility of not being able to get onto the internet as of July 9th if your computer is infected. is is because in 2007 cybercriminals released a virus that, once infected, would redirect your computer to a server under their control. ese servers would push web ads, resulting in millions of dollars going to the cybercriminals. Last year the FBI was successful in arresting the individuals responsible and seized over 100 servers used by these criminals, e ectively breaking up the crime ring. Due to the number of people infected, the criminals servers were kept online so as to not disrupt the web activities of those infected. However, the FBI set a date of July 9th, 2012 to turn o the servers. And if your computer is still infected, you may now not be able to connect to the internet (as of July 9th). So July 9th has come and gone! What do I do now if I cannot get onto the internet??? If you cannot connect, you may be infected by the DNS Changer. Many service providers are notifying their customers about this and are creating help pages that will help you detect and clean up DNS Changer from your system. Below is a partial list with links to their information. If you do not see your provider on the list, you can always call your Internet Service Provider for their assistance.

In the dissenting opinion, Justice Kennedy says the remainder of what the court has rede“ ned as a series of taxes with no mandate, and with states free to do their own thingŽ, is completely unworkable. Kennedy adds that the ONLY logical thing now would be for Congress to start over, with a clean sheet of paper. Its impossible to envision a House or Senate Committee trying to “ gure out how to “ x and then fund whats left. ObamaCare is headed for the trash…bin of history, one way or the other. Many are complaining about how preposterous, absurd, illogical and ludicrous the Roberts opinion is. But in truth it was profoundly clever and ingenious. While most pundits and politicians were playing checkers, Roberts engaged in a game of chess. With a few brilliant moves he has preserved the Commerce Clause, limited the federal governments ability to coerce, forced ObamaCare proponents to come clean and admit the truth about 21 hidden tax increases, defended States Rights … and has allowed states to refuse to play in ObamaCare. Finally Roberts has passed the chess board to the American voters, to make one “ nal move and declare check…mateŽ on November 6th. And as we now ponder our choices for November, Justice Roberts is saying … I give you a Republic, if you can preserve itŽ.Chief Justice Roberts continued from page 4A

Soil, crops, and water are analyzed for nutrient concentrations … all to determine how e ciently those nutrients are being utilized on the farm and the potential for nutrients to be lost to the environment. e study was initiated in 2009 by the Suwannee River partnership (SRP) and is being led by the University of Florida /Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/ IFAS). Funding is provided by the Suwannee River Water Management District (District), UF/IFAS, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), and Suwannee Farms. Now in its “ nal year, the study will determine the e ects of best management practices (BMPs) currently used on the farm and how these practices could expand to improve nutrient management.  is study is a positive step toward improving nutrient management and protecting water quality,Ž said Hugh omas, SRP coordinator. It also has the added bene“ t of conserving water.Ž Building nutrients and organic matter in soils allows the soils to hold moisture which conserves irrigation water. Improved irrigation management conserves water and protects water quality. e goal is to keep the right amount of water in the root zone, which is vital to reducing nutrient losses to the environment. omas said over watering pushes fertilizer past the root zone. Under watering stresses the crop and doesnt allow fertilizer to be utilized. But application of the right amount of water helps the crop take up fertilizer, which results in the protection of water quality and a productive yield for the farmer.

Property Appraiser Oz Barker Gives Thanks ank you very much for the opportunity to give a statement regarding my being unopposed for reelection to the o ce of Levy County Property Appraiser. I must start the same as I did four years ago when “ rst being elected and that is by giving all praise, honor and glory to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is by his sacri“ ce and o er of grace to me that I am capable of being useful for anything. James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. I am thankful each and every day for Gods many blessings. First, my loving family and many Brothers and Sisters in Christ who faithfully support me with encouragement and prayers. Secondly, this job which I truly enjoy and look forward to each day. As I have told many over the past 3 years, I like the good and even the bad that comes with this job and I often feel that I am living out my greatest dream. irdly and by no means least, I am thankful and blessed by the awesome sta that God has placed around me. ey are the ones that make this o ce capable of providing the best possible service to each and every person that comes through our doors, calls on the phone, or sends a letter or email. I am humbled by the vote of con“ dence that I have been given by the citizens of this great county by allowing me another term in o ce and to do so unopposed. 1 Peter 5:5-6, 5 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for ‘God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.’ 6. erefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7. casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. I say thank you Levy County citizens for this opportunity and I pledge to continue serving all, who come or call upon the Levy County Property Appraisers o ce, with respect and with a gracious attitude of humility. We will continue to strive for excellence and to improve our service to our community. I believe that we are supposed to do all we can to help in promoting goodwill and to help those who are in the public and private sector working courageously and tirelessly to build something for themselves and ultimately for our communities goodwill. I like to see good people succeed and be prosperous, because I know that they will return back to their communities the same blessings that they have received. I close by saying thank you much and may God Bless, Oz Barker

Photos courtesy of the U.S. War Dogs website When Suwannee River ” oodwaters at Wilcox fell below 9 feet Sunday, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) deactivated boating restrictions in Zone 4.Zone 4 is the section from the County Road 340 Bridge at Rock Blu to one mile below the Fowler Blu boat ramp. is 51-mile segment falls under the boating restrictions as long as the Suwannee is at 9 feet or more at the Wilcox gauge, where ” ood stage is 11 feet. e FWC activated restrictions in this zone July 4. We veri“ ed with the Suwannee River Water Management District that the water level has fallen below the required 9 feet at Wilcox,Ž said Capt. Martin Redmond, area supervisor at the FWCs Lake City o ce. Even though the restrictions have been lifted on this zone, we highly recommend people avoid boating on the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers until normal conditions and water levels return. ere are many navigational hazards along the rivers at this time,Ž Redmond said. Dangers include ” oating debris, submerged navigational hazards and extremely strong currents on these rivers. ere is also the potential for public safety issues and the increased possibility of property damage from vessel wakes, the captain explained. FWC o cers are patrolling the rivers and continuing to assist local communities to help people dealing with the aftermath of Tropical Storm Debby,Ž Redmond said. Zone 5 on the Santa Fe River remains an idle-speed, nowake zone. It was activated June 29.

It was activated when the Santa Fe River reached 17 feet on the ree Rivers gauge, where ” ood stage is 19 feet. at zone remains in e ect. An idle-speed, no-wake restriction means a vessel must proceed at a speed no greater than what is required to maintain steerageway and headway in that river zone. At no time is any vessel required to proceed so slowly that the operator is unable to control it or anything it may be towing. e Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers are divided into “ ve ” ood zones. e other three zones are: € Zone 1 is from the U.S. 90 Bridge at Ellaville south to the State Road 51 Bridge at Luraville. is 39-mile segment becomes an idle-speed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River is at 47 feet or more, as indicated on the Ellaville gauge, where ” ood stage is 54 feet. € Zone 2 stretches from the S.R. 51 Bridge at Luraville to Little River Spring. is 18-mile segment becomes an idle-speed, no-wake zone when the Suwannee River is at 26 feet or more at the Branford gauge, where ” ood stage is 29 feet. € Zone 3 runs from Little River Spring to the County Road 340 Bridge at Rock Blu is 23-mile segment is an idle-speed, no-wake zone as long as the Suwannee River is at 24 feet or more at the Branford gauge.

Ellzey UnitedMethodist ChurchCorner of 336 & Hwy 24 Worship Service ............ 11 a.m. Sunday School. ...............10 a.m.Pastor Doug Fleming Huge crowds waited anxiously out in the “ elds. Dozens of world dignitaries had assembled along this dusty old Mississippi turn row. e President himself was standing to salute as I rode a wheelie past him on my new Honda XR75 motorcycle. Never before had such an event taken place out behind my grandpas barn. Over by the grain bins the reporters crowded Miss America for her comments. Dont do it Guy,Ž she pleaded and wiped a tear from her eye. It was too late. I had already found the plywood to make the take o ramp. Shortly thereafter I was rolling a 55 gallon drum out of the barn when my little brother Heath pierced my day dream. Whacha doing?Ž he asked with his big snaggle toothed grin. Get outta here punk,Ž I shouted, and pretended to lunge at him. He fell back. (I could do that then. I was thirteen and he was seven.) As usual, he popped up quicker than a Bozo punching bag and asked, Can I help?Ž You might as well,Ž I fumed, Miss Americas done gone now!Ž As great daredevils are apt to do, I made some last minute ramp adjustments. I took a few dry test runs to carefully calculate the precise speed I would need to clear the barrel. Finally, when I could think of no other suspense builders, I readied for my approach. is was the moment the world had waited for. I ” ipped the lid down on my helmet and gave one last wave to the crowd. Heath waved back. I revved that poor little engine for all it was worth, and then puttered o carefully. I mustve been topping out at over 10 mph when I hit that ramp. I made it all the way to the topactually cleared the barrel somehow. Sliding to a stop I let the dust clear, threw the bike over, and stood there with both arms raisedƒ basking in the glow. Heath came rushing over. Im his hero,Ž I thought. My turn... My turn...Ž He cried. After Id gotten 20 or 30 jumps under my belt I “ nally decided to give in to Heaths non-stop begging. Of course, to make sure I maintained my distance records I gave him strict orders to stay in “ rst gear. e “ rst indication he hadnt been listening was when he went plum around front of the house to start his approach. I couldnt see him, but then I heard him coming; cranking it down and winding it out every gear. He blazed around the corner doing at least “ fty. I was screaming and ” agging my arms wildly, but he only had one thing on his mind, and he hit that ramp as fast as that Honda would go. Im not sure what the world motorcycle jumping record is, but I can tell you, I was the lone witness to it that day. Heath was probably still on the way up when he set it! He jumped clean over the whole back yard and landed with a thud just short of the cotton “ elds. Somehow he managed to hold on, although his legs were ” apping along behind like sheets in the wind, and that knobby back tire was working his business over something “ erce. He zoomed into those freshly plowed rows at full speed, each bump causing him to goose the throttle more. He was half way across the “ eld before he “ nally bogged down. By the time I got there he was back on his feet. He forced a muddy half grin and muttered, Your turn.Ž I guess you could say little Heath had been so anxious to mount up with wings like eagles that hed forgotten to wait upon the Lord! at can sure make for some bumpy landings, especially with regards to sharing your Christian faith. I should know. I still hear from a host of family members who like to testify how my initial approach came in just a little too fast right after I got saved. However, theres a ditch on both sides of that road. We cant just sit around calculating and procrastinating either. If were waiting on the ramp to be set up perfectly well probably never jump. As Christians we must be willing to ” ip the lid down on our helmet of salvation and pop the clutch when the Lord gives us the nod. Just remember, without the Holy Spirit in your witnessing, youre just ” ying o into left “ eld. But anywayLift up your eyes and remember those huge crowds; the ones cheering for you from above, and those that are in the “ elds white to harvest. Dont be scared to make that great leap of faith. (Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life. And if you are asked about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it. 1 Peter 3:15 NLT) -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue an air construction permit to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable assurance that operation of proposed equipment will not adversely impact air quality and that the project will comply with all appropriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62210, 62-212, 62-296 and 62297, F.A.C. The Permitting Authority will issue a Final Permit in accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comment received in accordance with this notice results in a different decision or a significant change of terms or conditions. Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Permit for a period of 14 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the Permitting Authority by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before the end of this 14-day period. If written comments received result in a significant change to the Draft Permit, the Permitting Authority shall revise the Draft Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department’s Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 323993000 (Telephone: 850/2452242). Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publication of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency’s proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency’s proposed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. Pub.: July 12, 2012. ----------

Boating Statistics Now Available from 2011 Sixty-seven people lost their lives in Florida last year in boating accidents, and there have already been 28 deaths so far this year, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), which has released its 2011 Boating Accident Statistical Report. e FWC is responsible for reviewing, analyzing and compiling boating accident data for the state. Its statistical report details boating accidents and their causes.  e frequency of boating accidents in Florida and their causes would probably shock most people,Ž said Investigator Andy Bickel, of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We want to reduce the number of accidents, injuries and deaths on Florida waters,Ž Bickel said. Drowning is the leading cause of death in boating accidents, statistics show.  eres an easy “ x. Wear a life jacket,Ž Bickel said.  ere are several styles of life jackets available to boaters that wont interfere with your boating experience and may save your life.Ž Todays boaters can choose from several models of light and comfortable, in” atable belt-pack and over-theshoulder life jackets (PFD … personal ” oating device) that can be worn while “ shing or enjoying the sun, and they do not interfere with boating activities. Accidents can occur without warning, and if for some reason someone ends up in the water, quite often its too late to put on a life jacket.  e leading type of accident continues to be boaters colliding with other boats or objects,Ž Bickel said. With the number of boaters in our beautiful state, its important to pay close attention to everything thats going on around your boat.Ž Statistics repeatedly show that boaters who have taken a basic boating safety class are less likely to be involved in a serious boating accident. e 2011 Boating Accident Statistical Report is now available online at MyFWC.com/Boating, click on Boating Accidents.Ž Photo courtesy of MyFWC media.
