Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 89, NO. 2 50 CENTS THURSDAY, JULY 19, 2012 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySee Sections A and B See page 3AWilliston, Chie and & Yankeetown Minutes Sweet LiarLevy County Cattle Rustler Captured by U.S. MarshalsOn April 9, 2012, U.S. Marshals in Gainesville, Florida received a request for assistance from U.S. Marshals in Illinois regarding a federal violation of probation arrest warrant for Ronald Shepard who used to live in the Levy County and Gilchrist County areas and possibly still had associates nearby. Gainesville U.S. Marshals, with assistance from investigators from the Gainesville Police Department and the Levy County Sheri s O ce, initiated a fugitive investigation and learned that local investigators in Levy County were also investigating Shepard for cattle rustling. On April 19, a Levy County arrest warrant for scheme to defraud/organized fraud was issued for Shepard with a $1 million bond. is warrant was issued after Levy County investigators determined Shepard and a co-defendant had engaged in a scheme in late March 2012 to steal a large number of cattle from the Suwannee River Fair and a cattle owner who was selling cattle in Levy County. is scheme to steal cattle in Levy County matched a string of cattle thefts across the nation by Shepard. Shepard is a suspect in multiple states for cattle thefts that total between $6 and $10 million. Shepards schemes involved promising to buy large numbers of cattle, taking the cattle, selling the cattle to stockyards or other buyers, and then keeping all of the money and eeing the state without paying the original owners. Due to the e ect Shepards scheme had in Levy County and because Shepard had targeted Levy County after doing similar schemes in other states, Gainesville U.S. Marshals took special interest in Shepards case and continued the fugitive investigation into Shepards whereabouts. During the subsequent fugitive investigation, Gainesville U.S. Marshals developed information that Shepard had brie y returned to Gainesville in late April 2012 but then ed the state. Continued investigation later revealed Shepard had likely ed the nation in an attempt to avoid his arrest warrants in multiple states. Last month, Gainesville U.S. Marshals developed information that Shepard had ed to Mexico where he was currently hiding in a town in northern Mexico. U.S. Marshals then began coordinating with Mexican law enforcement o cials to capture Shepard. Shepard was located and arrested in Mexico this week and extradited back to the United States on July 10, 2012. Shepard is currently in federal custody with charges pending in multiple jurisdictions, including Levy County. Deputy U.S. Marshals from the Southern District of Illinois, the Northern District of Florida, the Southern District of Texas and the USMS International Investigations branch worked with local investigators in Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas. United States Marshal Don Slazinik stated, People should not be able to commit crimes in our country, ee, hide in another country, and not be pursued. Victims of crime deserve justice. is is a perfect example of cooperation between federal, state, and local agencies to make that a reality Levy County Sheri 's O ce is in the process of ling detainers with the Federal Government to extradite Shepard to Levy County. e Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Association took a huge nancial hit when Ron Shepard and Jeremy Pierce failed to deliver the proceeds of the Tri-County Fair cattle sale to Larry Lindsey, broker for the cattle sale. Fair President Loran Brookins promised and made good the payment to our children for all of their hard work in raising the livestock for the show. Jeremy Pierce has been in custody in Illinois after turning himself in a day after warrants were issued in Levy County. ...information provided by Deputy Bryon Carroll of the US Marshals Service in Gainesville and the Lt. Scott Tummonds of the Criminal Investigations Unit of the Levy County Sheri s O ce.

Ward has started her own herd by purchasing bred heifers with income from her swine and rabbit production SAEs (supervised agriculture experiences). Its life for me, she said. I mean living on a farm, its stu I have to do everyday. Some advice Id have for future FFA members would be to keep at it, she said. Dont give up. Since she joined FFA in the sixth grade, Ward said shes wanted to run for subdistrict, district and state o ce. She said if she gets elected to state o ce she would run for national o ce as well. She wore her Uncle James Quinceys 1950s national state o cer ring to convention. She hopes to attend the University of Florida to become either a veterinarian or an agriculture teacher.

For Bronson Seniors, Sarah Trimm was elected the Area II State Vice President and took 2nd place in the Prepared Public Speaking contest. Landon Smith was a State Star Greenhand nalist. Bronson FFA was "Florida's Finest" in the National FFA Chapter Award Program and took 2nd place in the Nutrients for Life Foundations Helping Communities Grow Awards to receive $3,000. J. R. Trimm was a State Star Greenhand with 1st place in the Marketing Division Ornamental Horticulture Demonstrations. Trimm has worked diligently to be pro table in his Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) project starting his own business, growing and selling caladium bulbs and plants. Trimm was proud to become nancially independent getting the business started. I grow caladiums for wholesale, and most FFA members borrow money from their parents in order to get their business started, he said, but I borrowed a loan from the United States Department of Agriculture. Receiving the State Star Greenhand award has not stopped Trimm from making plans to continue to expand the business. I signed some contracts with 17 di erent grocery stores in my area, and next year I am going to get into a larger corporation in the Southern states with about 3,000 locations, Trimm said. Trimm said he would like to tell FFA members just beginning their SAE projects, It doesnt matter if your funds are limited or if your land use is limited. You can nd a way to work it out, and you can make something of yourself even if everyone else doesnt think you can. Trimm hopes to attend the University of Florida to pursue degrees in horticulture and business.

When a sex o ender fails to register with law enforcement their whereabouts are unknown to police and citizens who live near them. "We identi ed and targeted the most dangerous absconders. In most of the cases we were dealing with cold leads," said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. "Working with our law enforcement partners, new leads were developed allowing us to locate and arrest these sex-o enders-in-hiding." Operation Safe Summer coincided with the end of the school year, because children are more likely to come in contact with sex o enders/predators during the summer months. In addition to the arrests, investigators believe 20 targeted absconders have ed the country. eir identities have been given to the US Marshals Service so they can be arrested immediately if they try to return. e Sheri s of Florida and their thousands of dedicated sta have declared war on sex o enders and internet predators--if you hide from us, we will nd you," said Volusia County Sheri Ben Johnson, president of the Florida Sheri s Association. "We are dedicated to keeping the streets safe and ensuring citizens know when an o ender lives among them." Florida Police Chiefs Association President and Tallahassee Police Chief Dennis Jones said that police departments and other law enforcement agencies across Florida are working hard to keep citizens and especially children safe from sexual predators. Sex o enders know that by law they are required to register with local police agencies, because citizens have a right to know if a sex o ender is living in their neighborhoods. I applaud the FDLE for initiating this statewide e ort to locate and arrest people who are illegally trying to escape notice in our communities. While absconders were arrested throughout Florida, other targeted o enders/predators remain atlarge. FDLE and local law enforcement agencies will continue to search for these o enders. If you have information about the target absconders still at-large or any sex o ender absconder, contact your local law enforcement agency or FDLE.Operation Safe Summer Nets 23 O ender Arrests Saga of the Stolen Power Tools in Williston Goes On e ongoing saga of the robbery in Williston is continuing and not in the favor of the criminals according the reports by the Williston Police Department. As we reported last week, the truck stolen from Maguires Auto Repair to transport the stolen goods was recovered in Hialeah, Florida. Now Sgt. James Bond, along with o cers from the Coral Springs, Hialeah and Opalocka Police Departments, inspected several booths at the Opalocka Flea Market and the result is the o cers so far have recovered 20 stolen yard power tools, nine of which came from the burglary at Lanes Yardware in Williston. A van has also been seized and one person has been taken into custody with more arrests expected. e o cers are in the process of obtaining search warrants to allow entry into more storage buildings that are under the control of the suspects involved in this investigation.
The Levy County Journal 3AJuly 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irbys Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySweet LiarOne winters morning I sat with Brinton Burke in a caf in the old section of Tampa. ough he lived in relative obscurity, hed maintained a photography studio nearby for over fty years. Brinton was a quiet, unassuming man. He spoke in hushed tones, though he radiated a special sense of local history and family lineage in the town that had always been his home. He recalled people, places and events of which he had been a virtually anonymous, but careful observer. en, from his own life, he blessed me with this story: I woke, he said, to the rain ending abruptly. I lay a while watching the water pearling up in heavy beads along the eve of the upper story. It dripped drop by drop down from the peeling paint to banana leaves in a nook between the chimney and screened back porch. I enjoyed that sound, the drum thud of the rain drops, until suddenly I was overcome by the clickity-clack of the rst streetcar out on the avenue that morning. It was April 1946. e streetcars would not run in Tampa any more after August of that year. I didnt know that then didnt know that was ending, too. My grandmother came to my room that morning festooned in the style of spring, though the style of her dress and broad hat were not the style of the day. She laid out a suit too small, or nearly so. It was the best I had and it would do. e tie she liked this one, not that one had been my fathers before the war. I was reminded again of the importance of shined shoes and straightness in the part of my hair. A young gentlemans attention to such detail, she said, was as admirable as brave deeds. Ones appearance, insofar as one was neat and orderly and made the best of what one had, was by her reckoning an outward manifestation of the soul within. at was how we now lived in the afterglow of the life her father had made. e house was as he had left things. I knotted my tie thinking her ignorance this ignoring of the decay about us to be more her bliss than folly. Outside my window the dense shade of old oaks obscured the new cracks in our foundation, the peeling paint, and the buckled roof shingles above. Yet we lived on in that great house as my grandmother dreamed and fanned its last glowing embers. It was true as she said, We must look our best with what we have, or lose all. We must be seen. ere was a man we would see that day. Not the usual sort of man, but a poet. She said he would see my folio and something may come of it. A very important prospect, she kept saying. Very important, indeed. With the money I had saved lifeguarding at the city pool, Id bought a six-year-old Speed Graphic camera with a large ash attachment, a camera most common and prized of all the press cameras at the time. Grandmother had already shown and sold a few of my photographs. ese were of other men, men with traction in downtown businesses, the chiefs of police and re, politicians, as well as men who made their money tra cking bootleg liquor and running rackets. Money and politics still mingled more by habit than gain in our parlor, and it spilled out into the walled garden behind the house where deals got made over whiskey and cigars. I had done their portraits, many of these men. My grandmother ushered them before the dusty velvet drape wed drug down to the parlor from an unused upstairs room. Some of these would become men of means far greater than ever my great grandfather was. Some went to prison. Some did both. e photographs I took re ected their best days, taken ironically in a place that had known its best days. e man we would see that day would become famous. He wasnt yet, but had come to town for a reading from his new book. My grandmother was very much impressed and somehow managed a meeting. So we boarded the streetcar to Ybor City where a popular little restaurant served dark Cuban co ee and sweet rolls ladled with sugary icing and sprinkled with crushed nuts. She was a sweet liar, my Grandmother. She did not know this man nearly as well as she had said. I could see that in his dark eyes. She sensed his skepticism as we came near, but smiled her magical smile, raised her bosom and lifted her wonderful red hair with great regal bearing. It didnt matter that she was not all she might have been; she strutted who she was. In refuge and revenge she lived as well as she could. She prided herself in me and pushed me forward. We came to where he was waiting at a table in a darkened corner, this thick-browed, railthin man in tweed. He stood, mustachioed and gaunt in his heavy, ill- tting suit and waited until her hand was extended before he o ered his. We were introduced. Yes, yes, was all he said without quite looking at me. My grandmother talked incessantly, even before we sat. Neither he nor I had inclination or opportunity to interject. She ordered co ee and sweet rolls without slowing the pace of her promotions. Her e ervescence was e ortless. ere was no heavy lifting for her in this, nothing to unwrap or bind up. She laid out immediately her insistence that collaboration between this author and me would be prominent and pro table. ere would be good fortune for this man who looked like death, but as he leafed lazily through my folio, I sensed none of it would waft my way. When she let him talk at last, he said in a slow, elongated drawl, Well, yes. Yes. And that was all he said, as if nothing more need be said. And of course, yes was nothing less than what Grandmother required. So after it had rained again for the last time that morning and we stood on the wet pavement, he said nally, Yes, ank you. Yes. en with a slight bow, he went back up the street taking his long shadow with him. On the streetcar, the poets yesssssss seemed to sound in the sprinklers coming on in sunlit sprays over the already wet lawns along the avenue. Grandmother sat with her purse on her knees smiling with satisfaction at a future she imagined while we returned to the past. Yes was No. Yes that morning meant everything my grandmother wanted to hear. It meant nothing, exactly as the poet meant to say. At seventeen, I already knew that his yes was little more than sugar disappearing in a cup of hot co ee. It was like that. So distant did that day become that in the last of her years, my grandmother spoke of the proposed collaboration as if it had actually occurred. She would introduce me over again to her oldest friends and speak of the book as if it were an object that could actually be taken from a shelf in the parlor. If only she had been able and not by then so frail, she would have gone to the parlor that moment to show o the beautiful, leather-bound book with gold leaf and opened it to my exquisite photographs illustrating the now celebrated poems of the once famous poet. But it wasnt there. It never was. So it had come to that. And thus it lingered in her dementia until the summers eve when a dazzling moon rested its gentle beams upon her windows ledge. She died in the gauzy dark where jeweled shadows re ected the massive posts of her bed: a Yes forming xed then, rm and crisp as starched lace upon her aged, lifeless lips. Yes was what she wanted. It was the way she went. (Authors note: All characters are ctitious and no reference to any real person is intended or should be inferred.)

The Levy County Journal4AJuly 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 The Invincible Lie: Part II Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateNothing produces more of a sense of the futility of facts than seeing someone in the mass media repeating some notion that has been refuted innumerable times over the years. On July 9th, on CNNs program e Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, commentator Gloria Borger discussed President Obamas plan to continue the temporary extension of the tax rates established under the Bush administration -except for the top brackets, where Obama wanted the tax rates raised. Ms. Borger said, if youre going to lower the tax rates, where are you going to get the money from? First of all, nobody is talking about lowering the tax rates. ey are talking about whether or not to continue the existing tax rates, which are set to expire after a temporary extension. And Obama is talking about raising the tax rate on higher income earners. But when Ms. Borger asked, where are you going to get the money from? if you dont raise tax rates, that assumes an automatic correlation between tax rates and tax revenues, which is demonstrably false. As far back as the 1920s, a huge cut in the highest income tax rate -from 73 percent to 24 percent -led to a huge increase in the amount of tax revenue collected by the federal government. Why? Because investors took their money out of tax shelters, where they were earning very modest rates of return, and put their money into the productive economy, where they could earn higher rates of return, now that those returns were not so heavily taxed. is was the very reason why tax rates were cut in the rst place -to get more revenue for the federal government. e same was true, decades later, during the John F. Kennedy administration. Similar reasons led to tax rate cuts during the Ronald Reagan administration and the George W. Bush administration. All of these presidents -Democrat and Republican alike -made the same argument for tax rate reductions that had been made in the 1920s, and the results were similar as well. Yet the invincible lie continues to this day that those who oppose high tax rates on high incomes are doing so because they want to reduce the taxes paid by high income earners, in hopes that their increased prosperity will trickle down to others. In reality, high income earners paid not only a larger total amount of taxes after the tax rate cuts of the 1920s but also a higher share of all the income taxes collected. It is a matter of record that anyone can check out with o cial government statistics. is result was not peculiar to the 1920s. In 2006, the New York Times reported: An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget de cit this year. Expectations are in the eye of the beholder. Tax cut proponents expected precisely the result from the Bush tax cuts that so surprised the New York Times. So did tax cut proponents in the John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan administrations. If this concept has not yet trickled down to the New York Times or CNNs Gloria Borger, that is a commentary on the media commentators. Ms. Borger may simply not know any better, but Barack Obama cannot use that excuse. When he was a candidate for president back in 2008, Charles Gibson of ABC News confronted him with the fact that there was no automatic correlation between the raising and lowering of tax rates and whether tax revenues moved up or down. Obama admitted that. But he said that he was for raising tax rates on higher income earners anyway, in the name of fairness. How higher tax rates that the government does not actually collect make any sense, whether from a fairness perspective or as a way of paying the governments bills, is another question. e point here is that Obama knew then that tax rates and tax revenues do not automatically move in the same direction. In other words, he is lying when he talks as if tax rates and tax revenues move together. Ms. Borger and others in the media may or may not know that. So they are not necessarily lying. But they are failing to inform their audiences about the facts -and that allows Obamas lies to stand. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMIn Defense of Brad Pitts Mom OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Hollywood and the American left love diversity, except when it o ends their progressive value system. Witness the reaction to actor Brad Pitts mother, Jane, who publicly opposed President Obamas re-election. Mrs. Pitts pro-life, anti-gay marriage statement to her local paper last week en amed the Tolerance Mob. And her mere expression of dissident political views exposed the glittering hypocrisy of the left-wing No H8 campaign. In a letter to the editor for Missouris Spring eld News-Leader, Mrs. Pitt responded to another reader who argued that Christians should not support Mitt Romney because of his Mormon faith. Arguing for interfaith tolerance, she praised Romneys high morals and business experience. e celebrity mom urged prayerful consideration from fellow Christians before voting for Obama -a man, she pointed out, who sat in Jeremiah Wrights church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. Self-appointed Tinseltown anti-bigotry cops blew their tops. e Hollywood Reporter labeled Mrs. Pitts letter antigay. Gossip website Global Grind, founded by rap mogul Russell Simmons, called her homophobic. Perez Hilton, an L.A.-based gossip website operator and hanger-on to the stars who fronts the No H8 gay-marriage movement in California, pounced on Mrs. Pitt as mommy dearest. Hilton angrily scrawled across a photo of Mrs. Pitt with her son: A vote for Romney is a vote for God. After taking obligatory potshots at Christians, Hilton, who calls himself the queen of all media, fumed: Ugh! How can one woman birth such a beautiful boy, but have such unattractive views??? You want ugly? Hilton knows ugly. Hes the same trash-mouth blogger and former beauty pageant judge who attacked Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean with misogynistic profanities in 2009 because she said she opposed legalizing gay marriage at the federal level in favor of states rights to put the question up for a vote. She lost not because she doesnt believe in gay marriage, Hilton railed. She lost because shes a dumb b***h! You want ugly? When word of Mrs. Pitts letter spread on social media late last week, Twitter lit up with a stream of death threats, smears and slurs. My Twitter curation site, Twitchy.com, compiled just some of the vile bile aimed at Mrs. Pitt for supporting traditional values and standing up for the unborn: BRAD PITTS MOM WROTE AN ANTI-GAY PRO-ROMNEY EDITORIAL. KILL THE B***H. Brad Pitts mom, die F*** you, Brad Pitts mom. e gay community made your kid a star, you whacko. Brad Pitts mother...what a brainless old b***h...

Brad Pitts mom can choke on a (redacted). e usual civility police were in their usual place when the No H8 bullies mauled Mrs. Pitt: nowhere to be found. Brad Pitt also has been silent so far. His brother, Doug, did try, if a bit too meekly, to defend his mom on Monday in an interview with NBCs Today show: You know, I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any di erent? he said. ere can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you. e bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we dont have that in our family. Its open discussion. We can learn from each other, and if anything, it solidi es your point. Or maybe you learn something. Learn something from us deluded, dumba** Fascist Repukes? Heaven forfend. e overwhelming majority of Hollywood libs live in a fantasyland bubble where every Obama critic is a racist, every pro-life activist is a terrorist and every defender of traditional marriage is a Neanderthal. Hold a mirror up to their hatred, and theyll call it an incitement to hatred. Ironically, the iconic No H8 campaign logo features celebrities with their mouths taped shut with duct tape to symbolize how theyve purportedly been silenced. Its classic psychological projection from the practitioners of repressive tolerance.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Even at 71, Concealed Carry Permit and Skill Saves Lives and Property By Kathy HilliardEditorSamuel Williams is 71 years old and knowledgeable about how to carry and use a rearm. And the people in the Internet Cafe in Marion County were very glad he was there last Friday when he rousted out a couple of thieving thugs trying to get something for nothing. Williams was seated in the cafe donned with a baseball cap and shorts when Duwayne Henderson, 19, and Davis Dawkins, 19, stormed into the Internet Cafe to rob the place. Henderson had a gun and was pointing it at the customers and Dawkins was swinging a baseball bat. ey ordered patrons to move and smashed a computer screen. Henderson tuned around with his back to Senior Citizen Williams who then pulled out his .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun and skillfully dropped to one knee, put on a two-hand hold of the gun and red two shots at Henderson. Henderson ran for the door and make-my-day Williams continued to re while Henderson and Dawkins tripped over one another trying to get out through the door. Senior Citizen Award for Bravery this year goes to Samuel Williams who prepared and followed through with his skills to protect himself and those around him. Kudos to you, sir.

Troubleshooting the problem will depend on what type of internet connection you have available. But rst, check out the basics. Does the connection require you to connect to an Ethernet cable that will connect you to a LAN (Local Area Network) or through a router? If so, is the cable plugged in correctly & tightly? Also, are all the router lights lit up correctly? If it turns out that your router may be having some issues you can ask your service provider to check it and they may be able to send you a replacement if necessary. You can also call your local computer repair company to see if they can test it for hardware issues. If you have a wireless connection, check to make sure you are seeing the correct network. And for laptop owners, make sure if you have a wireless button, that it is in the ON position. Now you are ready to open a normal internet browser like Internet Explorer or Mozilla. If you get any error message, such as this page cannot be displayed, try ruling out false alarm by trying to visit other web sites, in order to make sure it is not just one site having the issue. If you still cant connect to the internet, go into your Network and Sharing Center through your Control Panel (Start Button ->Control Panel->Network Sharing Center) to see if there is something wrong with the network. In most cases, once you have identi ed that the network is having an issue, your computer will usually give you the option to troubleshoot; it can identify what is causing the issue and attempt to x it. Located underneath your current network information you will see options to change your network settings. Select the option Troubleshoot problems. If after you complete this option you still cant connect to the internet, you can either contact your Internet Service Provider to see if there may just be an issue with the service or the phone line or your local computer repair shop to rule out a computer problem, such as needing a network card or modem. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to give us a call; were happy to be of service.Troubleshooting Common Internet Connection IssuesSore Spelt Spit Splash Star State Surf en row Tree gator works computing 352-493-1006Ask About Our GWC Pro Care Total Technology Solutions! www.gatorworks.com4 WEST PARK AVENUE, CHIEFLAND, FL 32626Vehicle Vote Waited Went What Wife Yoga Yo-yoLeon Albert Jackson, born 1/23/1961, arrested 4/20/2012, Bay County Jail; Edward Murrie Chapman, born 5/30/1951, arrested 5/12/2012 in Hill County, Montana, held for Florida; Timothy Melburn Perlberg, born 6/19/1949, arrested 6/5/2012, Escambia County Jail; Willie L.

The Levy County Journal6AJuly 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Groundwater Levels Rebound in Some But Not All Regions of SRWMD Groundwater levels in most regions within the Suwannee River Water Management District (District) have rebounded following record rainfall, courtesy of tropical storms Beryl and Debby. But the eastern and extreme southern portions of the District are still experiencing low and extremely low groundwater levels and many counties still have 12-month rainfall de cits of as much as 15-20 inches. ere were signi cant improvements in many areas of the District and those improvements are on-going, said Megan Wetherington, District senior professional engineer. Other areas did not recover greatly due to the severity of the drought. Consequently, District Executive Director Ann Shortelle said it is premature for the District to lift a water shortage order that was declared just weeks before the arrival of the tropical storms and which remains in e ect through Sept. 30. We certainly understand that in our ooded counties, water conservation may be the furthest thing from most peoples minds, said Shortelle. But in other regions of the District groundwater levels remain low and we should all remember that water conservation is vital to protecting our water resources. District sta will continue to monitor conditions until longer-term e ects of the tropical storms are evaluated and then will make recommendations regarding continuation of the water shortage accordingly, said Shortelle. Tropical Storm Debby brought up to 26 inches in three days. Average rainfall in the District in June was 18.37 inches, the highest monthly average on record. In the 36 days between May 26 and June 30 the time period of Tropical Storms Beryl and Debby a portion of Suwannee and Lafayette counties received up to 48 inches, almost a typical years amount of rain. e majority of rainfall fell in the central areas of the District. Portions of Suwannee, Columbia, and Lafayette counties received up to 33 inches in June. e coastal and outlying areas in the District received as little as 9 inches for the month. Some areas on the Upper Suwannee River and many lakes and tributaries of the Santa Fe River experienced major ooding. e Suwannee River at White Springs rose 32 feet in two days, cresting at almost 85.3 feet. e Suwannee River at Suwannee Springs crested at almost 70.3 feet. e New River near Lake Butler and the Santa Fe River at Worthington Springs crested with the highest stage since 1992 and both exceeded the 10 percent ood. e Santa Fe at OLeno State Park crested higher than any recorded ood since 1980. By the end of June, levels in all but two District monitor wells had risen. Wells near the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers rose to their highest levels since previous oods. Eighteen percent of monitor wells were above normal, 34 percent were normal, 13 percent were below normal, and 34 percent were in the lowest 10 percent of records. e three-month outlook issued by the Climate Prediction Center calls for abovenormal precipitation and temperatures through September. e Districts June hydrologic conditions report is available at http://www.srwmd. state. .us/archives/35/June2012_TSDebby_ Hydroconditions_Report.pdf GRAPH 1: Groundwater levels for June 25-30.

Today was Daddys Day at school, and she couldnt wait to go. But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home; why the kids might not understand, if she went to school alone. But she was not afraid; she knew just what to say. What to tell her classmates of why he wasnt there today. But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone. And that was why, once again, she tried to keep her daughter home. But the little girl went to school, eager to tell them all. About a dad she never sees, a dad who never calls. ere were daddies along the wall in back, for everyone to meet. Children squirming impatiently, anxious in their seat. One by one the teacher called on a student from the class. To introduce their daddy, as seconds slowly passed. At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare. Each of them was searching, a man who wasnt there. Wheres her daddy at? she heard a boy call out. She probably doesnt have one, another student dared to shout. And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say, Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day. e words did not o end her, as she smiled up at her Mom. And looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on. And with hands behind her back, slowly she began to speak.. And out from the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique. My Daddy couldnt be here, because he lives so far away. But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day. And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know all about my daddy, and how much he loves me so. He loved to tell me stories, he taught me to ride my bike; he surprised me with pink roses, and taught me to y a kite. We used to share fudge sundaes, and ice cream in a cone. And though you cannot see him. Im not standing here alone. Cause my daddys always with me, even though we are apart; I know because he told me, hell forever be in my heart With that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest. Feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress. And from somewhere there in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears. Proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years. For she stood up for the love of a man not in her life. Doing what was best for her, doing what was a right. And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd. She nished with a voice so soft, but its message clear and loud. I love my daddy very much, hes my shining star. And if he could, hed be here, but heavens just too far. You see he is an American Soldier and he died just this past year,, when a roadside bomb hit his convoy and taught Americans to fear. But sometimes when I close my eyes, its like he never went away. And then she closed her eyes, and saw him there that day. And to her mothers amazement, she witnessed with surprise, a room full of daddies and children, all starting to close their eyes. Who knows what they saw before them; who knows what they felt inside. Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him at her side. I know youre with me Daddy, to the silence she called out. And what happened next made believers, of those once lled with doubt. Not one in that room could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed. But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose. And a child was blessed, if only for a moment, by the love of her shining star. And given the gift of believing, that heaven is never too far. It has been expressed that it takes a minute to nd a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them. Take the time...to live and love. ere must be many children in the same situation as this little girl. We say thank you to our servicemen and their families for the sacri ce they are making to keep our country free. e ultimate sacri ce is being left behind. Dont forget them. Please remember to pray for our troops and their families.

As of September 30, 2011 the Citys General Fund total assets are $890,560 which is $231,000 less than prior year assets. Total liabilities are $86,975 which didnt change much from prior year.

Mr. Beauchamp said the Citys nances are cautious. He said he would like to see the nancial gures grow in the next few years and the only way to do that is for the City to receive more money than it takes to operate.

Attest; Grady Hartzog, City Manager M. Teal Pomeroy, Mayor/Commissioner Recorded by: Mary Ellzey, Deputy City Clerk e Nature Coast Business Development Council continues to assist businesses impacted last month from Tropical Storm Debby. Reports prepared by the NCBDC were used in requesting a federal declaration for public assistance in Levy County for those a ected by the storm. Such a move allows grant assistance for debris removal and protective measures. It also can cover repairs, restoration and replacement for publicly owned property damaged by the storm. e state has authorized impacted county businesses to seek assistance through Small Business Emergency Bridge Loans. e zero interest loans are short term solutions designed to help businesses recover damages and losses from the storm while they seek long term aid.

CINO Political advertisement paid for and approved by Joseph Cino Jr. Republican for County Commission Dist. #3 e Club had a great meeting this month with about 21 present along with two guest speakers. Mr. Trey Blue is a young gentleman who designed and maintains the new North Central Florida Beekeepers Association website. Trey explained how the site works and how to access the site as well as the videos and chat-sites to the members from all the other clubs. If you are interested in our web site or are starting one of your own, contact Trey for information at email@example.com e second guest speaker was Dr. James Ellis from the University of Florida who spoke on the biology of the honey bee and understanding them, how the hive and the bees work, the queens job along with the workers and the drones (the drones are the males in the hive). e only job of the drones is to mate with the queen and then die. e queens only job is to lay eggs, about 1,500 to 2,000 per day. e worker bees do all the work (hence the name), feed the queen, collect nectar and pollen, and keep the hive clean. Our speakers were so interesting that the meeting lasted twice as long as normal. We only have one month until the National Honey Bee Awareness Day on Aug. 18th at the Livestock Pavilion in Ocala. ere will be refreshments for everyone along with demonstrations of all kinds. Live bees will be present as well as everything the bees make from honey, the wax, propolis, hand and face creams, candles and other wax products, Christmas tree ornaments and lots more. At the conclusion of the event there will be the Auction with something for everyone including antiques. Come enjoy the day and learn about the bees and their role in your everyday life. is month we had two new members among us.

WHS Class of 2007 graduate Jiwan James, 23, is a top prospect for the Double-A Reading Phillies and de nitely showed his talent during a game with the Bowie Baysox at FirstEnergy Stadium in Reading. In the third inning, Baysoxs Jonathan Schoop smacked the ball deep into center eld and most everyone read it as a home run. But not center elder Jiwan James. James decided it was his and went after the ball scaling the wall to get it. He lost his glove but made the incredible catch with his bare hand. Even though some said he trapped the ball with his body on the wall it was called an out and will go down in history as one of the plays of the 2012 year.

Well, as of July 1 that very discontinuation occurred and we no longer can publish those reports for our readers. Upon perusing the other market sites, including Georgia, there are many di erent reports that are no longer available due to lack of market reporters. But Georgia still has reports on site for their markets, not all but most. When no market reports are on site, there are no prices reported to the USDA and no Florida markets reported on or at any price-reporting venue. is severely hampers those who are buying and selling Florida cattle who need the national prices. Price discovery starts at the local livestock market and without that the whole system stops right there. According to the Florida Cattlemans Association, Florida's cattle industry ranks in the top 15 in the US. It is mostly cow/calf production with very little feed-yard or processing capacity. Florida's ranchers are committed to conservation of the states natural resources. Cattle producers provide jobs for state residents and support a wide variety of businesses such as feed companies, equipment dealers and fertilizer manufacturers. Additionally, Florida's ranchers are strong supporters of Florida's youth. From county fairs to scholarship contests, they have worked hard to give back to the communities.

I say it every morning as I funnel onto the Interstate 55 speedway and make my rush hour trek to Memphis. My day job barely inspires me to do the speed limit, so I am constantly amazed to see so many people excited to get to work. I only wish the thought of punching in brought that much joy to me! Almost every day some guy will practically latch on to my bumper and piggy back me through the construction zone, seemingly upset weve slowed to eighty. I think to myself, Now he must be a chemist right on the verge of a cure for cancer. en a young lady will whip out and pass me in the emergency lane. Maybe shes close to solving world hunger? Maybe before lunch at this rate! Sometimes I have gotten a little jealous, but when I see these happy commuters blazing past me honking and waving that Im number one, who could hold a grudge? It just melts my heart. I can only bid them Godspeed. Who knows, maybe one day Ill get rid of this little four cylinder and keep up long enough to nd out where this magical work place is. Maybe theyre taking resumes? I reckon in a perfect world we should all have Hundred Mile per Hour jobs, and be able to take our time getting there. Yet how can we slow down when this real world seems to be bucking us like a rabid snot-slinging old rodeo bull? Shucks, some days just hanging on for eight seconds is an accomplishment, much less eight hours. ere are no stress exemptions on the home front either. If your house is like mine, its stu ed with gadgets and gizmos that promised to save you time. Im yet to see a minute of it! Well take heart. ere is a way to nd both success and peace despite the myriad of deadlines and commitments we face. e rst step is for us to look up and realize not all of our commitments were ordained by God. We can do it now, or we can wait and do it from our death bed, and regret weve spent our lives like a hamster on a wheel. e fact is our garages grow junk. Sometimes we need to get alone with God to evaluate what needs to be chunked. Weighted down people wobble, but if we keep Jesus in the center, well maintain a balance. We wont collect the muck and mire that does so easily beset us. Somebody once said that BUSY stands for Being Under Satans Yoke. I partly believe it, and while I doubt God would ever advocate the shirking of your responsibilities, I believe He may suggest taking your laptop onto the golf course isnt such a good idea! Jesus said, (Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will nd rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 KJV) Who are you yoked up with? When I think about the peace the Lord has brought into my life I often wonder why the Interstate seems so lazy on Sunday mornings. I keep hoping to see it wild and crazy like on Mondays. Id more than welcome a good tongue lashing for impeding somebodys commute to Church. Sadly, Sundays are pretty calm, at least until after the closing prayer and we all race to the bu et! But anywayIf one Sunday morning you happen to see a little silver four banger in your rear view coming up quick, be prepared to try and keep up. Itll be heading to a place theyll gladly accept your application. And watch out on Monday evenings too, God has blessed me with one of those Hundred Mile per Hour families. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she email@example.com.

PLACE: WILLISTON CITY COUNCIL ROOM CALL TO ORDER ROLLCALL MEMBERS: Mayor R. Gerald Hethcoat Vice President Norm Fugate President Jerry Robinson Councilman Jason Cason Councilman Charles Goodman Councilman Elihu Ross City Attorney Fred Koberlein ITEM I PRESIDENT JERRY ROBINSON EMPLOYEE RELATIONS AND DISPUTES President Robinson turned the meeting over to City Attorney Koberlein for an update. City Attorney Koberlein advised that he had spoken to each of the Council members individually prior to the meeting to provide initial input about allegations made in the workplace. City Attorney Koberlein described a 2 step process: (1) determination of whether or not the allegations rise to the level that would require an emergency meeting; (2) If meeting is necessary, then the Council must then determine what action to take in order to protect all parties at this point. No determination of right or wrong should be made at this time, just actions that would help to protect all parties including segregating them from one another. Attorney Koberlein advised he had attempted to contact the City insurance provider and has not yet reached the appropriate party but will continue to attempt contact upon conclusion of the meeting. Vice President Fugate moved to continue the Special Emergency Meeting. Councilman Cason seconded and the motion carried 5-0. Vice President Fugate stated that the Council must proceed with an investigation according to City Policy and the law and that the details must remain con dential during the course of the open investigation in order to protect all parties by the law. Vice President Fugate noted the di culty of doing this considering that the Council must meet in open forum but emphasized that the details must still remain con dential as possible in accordance with the law. e Council clari ed that the meeting was an open meeting and was being recorded but names should not be mentioned to protect the parties. Councilman Cason stated that he believed steps should be taken to separate the parties and that separation on the premises is not a viable option. City Attomey Koberlein stated that per the policy, a claims investigator will be assigned immediately to begin an o cial investigation into the matter. President Robinson stated that this is a typical response and that the Council typically does not do the investigation but rather selects the party to conduct the investigation. Vice President Fugate stated that given the circumstances, the Council should delegate the authority to move ahead with the investigation or to procure an investigator with or without the assistance of the insurance company to complete the investigation. Mayor Hethcoat inquired about the investigation and if it would be done to investigate the facts and events of what occurred or would it be conducted on the grounds of what needs to be done to protect the City? President Robinson advised the investigator would be investigating to determine what happened and would report, without prejudice, as to the facts of what occurred. Some discussion occurred regarding how to segregate the parties. President Robinson stated he believed it was in the best interest of the City if the Recipient of the complaint to be placed on administrative leave. Councilman Ross asked if the Council had a duty to determine if the facts rise to the point that an investigation is needed. Attorney Koberlein stated that kind of determination is not something the Council should be attempting to make, rather it should attempt to protect all parties and address the allegations by separating the parties and then determining the facts as to what occurred through an investigation. Vice President Fugate noted that this situation does not allow the City to respond internally as it normally would per the City policy because the supervisors in this case are the Council members. Councilman Cason asked what will occur from day to day from this point with regard to separating the individuals. e consensus was that the separation needed to occur today. Options were explored to include the complainants or the recipient of the complaint would be placed on a paid administrative leave. Vice President Fugate stated that the recipient of the complaint should be made aware of the general nature of the allegations, that he should be placed on paid leave of absence and that he should be allowed to perform duties o site. President Robinson added that should be o site work out of town with no contact with anyone at City Hall. Mayor Hethcoat voiced his concerns that the administration stay on track based on the critical time of the year and the events that are taking place from the City Hall standpoint.

Councilman Cason seconded.

Vice President Fugate stated that all parties involved have very high levels of con dentiality rights related to this issue and the City has no choice but to have no comment.

Councilman Cason suggested the amendment be adjusted. Stephen Bloom stated it could be updated with future adjustments to be developed during the upcoming budget workshops. President Robinson directed Mr. Bloom to update the general fund amendment and bring it back to the Council for review at the next meeting.

Mr. Bloom recommended that the CD not be reinvested because the City is about to complete the last phase of utility refunds which is the largest. He stated that the City should have additional cash liquidity in the event funds are needed. Mr. Bloom added that there is a gas project in discussion that may require funding as well. Mr. Goodman moved that the CD not be reinvested and that sta place the funds from the CD into a money market account. Councilman Cason seconded and the motion carried 4-0.

President Robinson directed the sta to place the July 3 meeting on the agenda. e issue will be whether the meeting should be cancelled due to the July 3 parade and Independence Day Celebration scheduled to take place at the same time as the meeting. Mrs. Ann Ross addressed the council and asked how long the city would continue to experience power outages. She stated that the surge was tremendous and will eventually cause damage to appliances and electronic items. Councilman Goodman noted that he had been receiving similar inquiries from other citizens. Assistant Planner McQuaig explained that the most recent outage occurred as a result of a watermelon truck hitting a pole. e Council advised that these were largely due to the squirrel and animal activity.

Taylor, City ClerkCity of Williston, Florida Wholesale Power Cost Workshop Minutes Tuesday, June 8, 2012DATE: TUESDAY, JUNE 8, 2012 TIME: 1:30 P.M. PLACE: WILLISTON CITY COUNCIL ROOM CALL TO ORDER ROLLCALL MEMBERS: Mayor R. Gerald Hethcoat President Jerry Robinson Vice-President Norm Fugate Councilman Jason Cason Councilman Charles Goodman Councilman Elihu Ross (Absent) City Clerk Frances Taylor City Attorney Fred Koberlein (Absent) OTHER ATTENDEES: Jody Finklea Joe McKinney Ann Beckwith ITEM 1 DISCUSSION OF WHOLESALE POWER COSTS Jody Finklea, Assistant General Counsel for FMPA, addressed the Council and provided the following topics for discussion:1. Williston's current wholesale power supply contract expires the end of 2013. e City must give notice at the end of the year to renew. 2. A review of the power supply options if the City chooses to negotiate with a provider other than Progress Energy. 3. Understanding the transmission bill. 4. Update on the Crystal River 3 Nuclear Plant. 5. Power cost adjustment: rough information about the current marketVice President Fugate requested discussion of the contract and the renewal term of the contract. Mr. Finklea advised the City had a fairly standard wholesale power contract with a term to expire December 2013 with a requirement to give notice by end of year to renew. He stated that typically the RFP planning process would begin 18 months in advance of the end of contact. e process would include developing an RFP, reviewing transmission provisions, etc. He noted that Progress Energy is a wholesale power supplier in Florida but the number of contracts among cities is dwindling. Mr. Finklea stated that in the RFP process, Progress Energy put in a bid that is lower than their current contact price with Mt. Dora. e contract will be awarded soon but FMPA is expected to be the winner. Quincy was served by Progress Energy (formerly FPL) for 82 years FMPA took over service last year. Bartow and Winter Park were contracts lost by FPL that had previously been FPL. Consistently FMPA and OUC are in the running if not the lead in every bid lately. FPL is being aggressive with their pricing and as a general rule, Progress is higher. Now is the time to go out for a bid on the wholesale power contracts. is is a buyers market. Short term contracts are most common. (3-5 years) is will help obtain the best pricing. Vice President Fugate asked Mr. Finklea to review the comparison sheet that was provided to explain the voltage level served and the di erence between distribution and transmission. Ann Beckwith con rmed that there is an extra charge for the voltage conversion con rming that the City is being served at the distribution level because they have to step the voltage down to get it into the City system. Vice President Fugate asked for an explanation of the billing demand interval. Ann Beckwith advised that some utilities bill peak on a 60 minute, 30 minute or 15 minute interval. Vice President Fugate con rmed the City receives 2 bills, one for the purchase of electricity and the other for transmission to get it to the City. Mr. Finklea advised that the City has to sign separate agreements for transmission and power supply because of the FERC (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) requirement. He stated that transmission service will always come from Progress Energy this includes a metering charge and a distribution substation charge. Vice President Fugate directed attention to billing demand interval for wholesale power and asked if it was better to be on the 15 minute interval or the 60 minute interval. Mrs. Beckwith advised that it is better to have a 60 minute interval which is an average over an hour and is usually lower. Vice President Fugate con rmed that the City is currently billed based upon the 15 minute interval which is most advantageous to Progress Energy. Councilman Cason noted that both FMPA and Progress Energy are providers and asked what would allow FMPA to advise the City, independent of the process, knowing that if the City goes out to bid, FMPA could be a bidder. Mr. Finklea advised that the FMPA does not make a pro t because it is formed by the cities and billing is based on cost. He advised that FMPA is a 600 million dollar a year company. All those revenues are cost based and the more members FMP A has, the more bene cial it is to the FMPA and ultimately the cities because the added membership brings lower costs. Mr. Finley advised that he represents the Florida Municipal Electric Trade Association (FMEA) the cities trade association. e trade association is there to look out for the Citys best interest. FMPAs advise will be to choose the best bidder for the City of Williston. Joe McKinney advised that a City will need a year to put out the RFP to obtain and evaluate responses and negotiate a contract, 6 months will be needed to get the contract in place and time for the new provider and get the technical systems in place to provide the power. Vice President Fugate con rmed the City of Williston is a little a head of the process because more than a year remains on the contract. e current contract is a three year extension. Either party can give notice to extend the contract for one more year to 2014 but that notice would trigger negotiation between the City and Progress. It looks like if the City gave notice to extend the contract for a year then the City would be locked into negotiating exclusively with Progress and would not have the leverage of the ability to negotiate with other companies. President Robinson noted the presence of an additional provision to permit two three year extensions. President Robinson inquired about the RFP process. Mr. Fiaklea advised the City would need an outside engineering consultant like Jones Edmonds. Ed Wisser with Jones Edmunds is good at writing the RFP and evaluating the results. ey would hire someone else to do a fuel projection. e fuel price would likely not be in the bid that the City receives. When the bid is reviewed, the Council should consider fuel cost assumptions when the bid is evaluated. e expense for an outside engineering consultant would be approximately $20,000. e consultant would put the bid package together, put it out, compile the results and put the City contract together. In addition, the Council should ensure to include contact terms the City will insist on in the RFP such as a 60 minute billing interval and require that any bidder must agree to those terms or take an exception to it. Mayor Hethcoat asked for more information on savings like using the 60 minute interval. Mr. Fiaklea advised that there are xed and fuel costs. Fixed costs consist of a xed demand charge and a xed non-fuel charge. e fuel component uctuates monthly. One thing to consider is how much the power supplier is recovering through fuel or xed charge some provide a higher demand charge but lower fuel charge and vice versa. Mayor Hethcoat asked about the line loss factor in the power bill. Joe McKinney advised that some loss is associated with delivering energy to the City and those losses are set in the tari with the same rate to all customers. e City receives an additional loss factor for distribution service. Vice President Fugate con rmed that the rate listed states 98.34% which means that loss factor is 1.66% and that the line loss is Progress Energys not the Citys. Ann Beckwith stated that they constantly ght with Progress on that issue. It is currently 1.66 but had been at 1.86 previously. Vice President Fugate con rmed with Mr. Finklea that, no matter who the power provider is, the City will be writing a check to progress energy for transmission charges so there is no need to put out an RFP for transmission charges. Councilman Cason asked about the how the transmission fees are billed. Joe McKinney advised that under the current 5 year transmission contract the City can change power providers and power transmission will continue. If the transmission contract expires, the City can obtain another transmission contract from Williston Minutes for June 5, 2012 continued from page 6B continued on page 8B

An update will be brought to the Council following a response from B&G Seed.ITEM F CITY OF WILLISTON DEBRIS MANAGEMENT PLANCity Clerk Taylor advised that this agenda item was provided as requested at last Council meeting. Clerk Taylor con rmed that the City of Williston does have a current Debris Management Plan with 5 valid contracts on le and that these companies are still in operation and fully capable of responding to clear debris in the event of a disaster. e Council directed Ms. Taylor to ensure each Council member has a current contact listing of all of the vendors for future reference.ITEM G RFP FOR CITY INSURANCE POLICIESCity Clerk Taylor presented this item as noted in the agenda cover. Included was a proposed RFP for Health, Dental and Vision coverage. Councilman Cason con rmed that the RFP was designed to allow vendors to propose any combination of the three types of coverage listed. Ms. Taylor advised that another option would be to allow the current broker to put out an RFP on the Citys behalf. President Robinson suggested that the City have the broker conduct an RFP for services and then bring back a recommendation to the Council based on the responses. e members discussed the broker fees and bene ts of broker services. On consensus, Clerk Taylor was asked to investigate City Of Williston, Florida Evaluation Committee CDBG Engineering RFQ Minutes June 11, 2012DATE: MONDAY, JUNE 11, 2012 TIME: 5:00 P.M. PLACE: WILLISTON CITY COUNCIL ROOM CALL TO ORDER ROLLCALL MEMBERS: Mayor Hethcoat Came in after roll call. President Jerry Robinson Vice President Norm Fugate Councilman Jason Cason Councilman Charles Goodman Councilman Elihu Ross ITEM 1 EVALUATION OF RFO'S Vice President Fugate noted that the Council brought all these kinds of projects before the council to determine ranking. At some point, the Council moved away from that and there came situations where other parties were making decisions as opposed to the council in cases where a council determination seemed to be most appropriate. He advised that the Council could review this RFQ or decide to allow sta to rank it but that in any case, this committee provided the newer Council members and opportunity to see how the rankings are done and are exposed to what the process is all about. Vice President Fugate asked Dennis Davis of Jones Edmunds to clarify the minority ownership status. Councilman Goodman noted that neither contractor was minority owned but that Jones Edmunds did address that criteria in some way by utilizing minority sub-contractors in a lot of their projects. Councilman Cason asked if Mittauer & Associates had listed Williston as having been a previous client in the experience criteria. Discussion was held on di erent projects in the city and Dennis Davis of Jones Edmunds provided additional input on prior Williston projects. Councilman Cason asked if some or all of the CDBG projects completed by Jones Edmunds were listed in the Jones Edmunds RFQ. Mr. Davis advised that not all are listed and that the RFQ provides a representative sample. Final tally was given by President Robinson as follows: Mittauer & Associates 444 and Jones Edmunds 457. Vice President Fugate moved to authorize the City Manager, or in the absence of the City Manager, the Project Director to negotiate a contract with the highest ranked lm Jones Edmunds and if they are unable to negotiate a successful contract with Jones Edmunds to move down and negotiate a contract with the second ranked rm. Vice President Fugate added that upon completion of negotiations, the proposed contract is to be brought before the Council for nal approval. Vice-President Fugate stated the reason the motion is worded that way is because the statute does not require the City to go with the highest ranked rm if we are not able to negotiate a successful contract with the highest ranked rm. He added that his experience has been that a certain amount is allowed under the grant for these types of services but many rms are willing to reduce the price below what is provided for under the grant. Councilman Goodman con rmed that in the event the selected rm does negotiate a lower price than that provided for under the grant, that the amount that is less than the engineering fee remains available and is applied toward the remaining project costs. On vote, the motion passed 5-0. ITEM 2 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION ITEM 3 ADJOURNMENT Vice President Fugate moved to adjourn. Meeting adjourned at 5:24 pm. Jerry Robinson, President City Council Frances V. Taylor, City Clerk someone else but the power is still transmitted via Progress Energy. Keeping transmission in the Citys name may bene t the City because it will prevent the City from having to submit to a power transmission study under a power suppliers contract. ese studies cost typically around $10,000. Vice President Fugate asked if the City is at a disadvantage because Progress Energy owns the substation. Joe McKinney stated that the City does pay a substation tari rate but the City doesnt have the cost and responsibility to maintain the substation. Vice President Fugate asked if those charges are regulated and the same as other cities. Joe McKinney con rmed that is correct. Vice President Fugate con rmed that the wholesale power costs are the only thing that the City would have reason to go out to bid for. Mr. Fiaklea stated that is why the City would want a consultant to look at the facilities, transmission and costs to develop a good RFP. Mr. Goodman asked if the City was likely to save as much money as it will spend on the consultant. Mr. Finklea con rmed that he believed the city would ultimately save money that way. Vice President Fugate asked if being the small volume user as the City of Williston is, would a ect the bids. Mr. Finklea said it was hard to say but it may not make a di erence. e providers may not have the most incentive to give Williston the best bid but then again the City might t very well into their excess capacity that they have. Mr. Finklea advised that the City should get a much better bid on your xed charges than we have right now. Vice President Fugate veri ed all in rate is not transmission but just the power supply that the capacity, non-fuel energy and the fuel charge is the all in rate and that given the rate provided on the sheet if the City got that rate, we could save $40,000 a month. Vice President Fugate stated that once we begin this process, the City may see an o er from Progress and would then have to decide to continue with an RFP or to negotiate for better terms with Progress. Mr. Finklea advised FMPA could be a resource in that case as well to help negotiate these things. Joe McKinney stated that if the City decided not to put out an RFP, the FMPA could be utilized to provide services to help in the negotiation process. President Robinson asked what the opinion was about the Mt. Dora contract. Mr. Finklea stated that he felt FMPA would win the contract and that the rate is lower than the all in rate because there is generation sitting there that needs to be used and the load that Mt. Dora needed t well with what FMP A had in excess. 14 cities have signed a 30 year contract with FMPA that extends every year that obtain all their power supply from FMPA. Each city has a member on the Executive Committee. All decisions for FMPA are made by this Executive Committee. Discussion was held on the all requirements project. Councilman Cason stated that if Progress Energy was willing to give us a reduction without involving outside entities, they would probably give us a better reduction with an RFP. Mr. Finklea stated that timing is everything. Currently, there is excess that needs to be sold and this will factor into the costs. Councilman Goodman asked about Crystal River 3 Power Plant. Mr. Finklea explained that CR3 has a containment building that has a steam turbine that needs to be replaced. Progress cut a hole in the roof to get it and replace it and the concrete has begun to crack and the plant cant operate with a containment building in that condition. ey are not sure if they can x it. Part of the repair costs, to the extent no covered by insurance, goes into the wholesale power costs that they charge to all customers. If it were determined that they were imprudent about how they did this replacement, then the City of Williston would be due all those repair cost fees back. FMPA previously received a cap on their share of all repair costs up to 2013 and a provision that even if the plant is not producing power, they have to do so via other means. FMPA believes we can go to CR3 and say, the CR3 was imprudent and the Cities are due a refund and get the City of Williston a credit on future bills. FMPA thinks it would bene t the City of Williston to allow the FMPA as your agent to talk to Progress Energy about that. To do that, the Council would have to sign an agency agreement. We submitted a memo to Pat with the old agency agreement, the old tolling agreement and new tolling agreement. e tolling agreement allows the statute of limitations to stop. It allows a standstill in order to negotiate what the cities would be paid. Mr. Finklea encouraged the City to allow FMPA to represent the City. Progress settled with the Public Service Commission on this for over 4 million. If the City is interested in participating, please get back to Nick or Sue Utley. Mr. Finklea stated he would send the agreement and it could be reviewed on the agenda. Mr. Finklea advised that the costs would be distributed among the cities that want to participate in the process. FMPA would negotiate an agreement to get the City dollars back in the form of a credit. Mayor Hethcoat stated that the City did this years ago but received a check over a period of three years. Mr. Finklea stated that was for the 96/98 outage of CR3 plant. And the City received a large bene t from it. Vice President Fugate stated that the Council needs to (1) obtain the CR 3 request, (2) direct the City Attorney to look at the current contract and determine whether or not there is notice required in order to proceed with RFP, (3) determine whether to proceed with RPF and to put on the agenda a decision to hire a consultant. Vice President Fugate stated that last time the City went through this process the City used Mr. Wisser. Mayor Hethcoat asked the City Attorney to check and see if the City entered into anything that would prevent the City from entering into that agreement. President Robinson stated that the Council should have Fred review the contract then after his review, sta can put the other items on the agenda and go from there. On consensus the Council agreed that the Vice President to forward the contract to the City Attorney and explain the Councils request to him. Councilman Cason asked knowing there are two parts to what the residents pay for power (transmission and xed/fuel rate) how e ectively can the City manage or adjust that number given the question about what our cost of power will be going forward. Stephen Bloom, Severn Trent Representative, advised that once the bids/prices are received, the Council can determine how much to lower the rates to the customers. Vice President Fugate asked if the percentage of decrease in the wholesale contract price is automatically applied as a reduction in price to customers. Mr. Bloom advised that it could be and explained that the variable cost currently charged to customers is a power cost billed to recoup the City power costs and overhead. Councilman Cason asked if the City can fund engineering for this service in the same way as the CDBG engineering. Mr. Bloom advised this could be done but may require a budget amendment. Vice President Fugate stated that the language of the sheets should be changed. Mr. Bloom advised that the Finance Department has updated the tari sheets in relation to the formula now and will need to update the Resolution to go with those sheets.

In soccer there are several teams that operate in both Spring and Fall with the recreation and competition programs. During the last baseball season, 30 away teams came to Williston with 80 total games played at the WYAA eld. It was estimated that 1300 out of town visitors and about 8000 visitors altogether visited Williston and the WYAA eld through the spring sports Baseball program alone. Mr. Davis stated that the WYAA Board and Coaches are doing a good job of setting a high standard for our kids and teach them with integrity. WYAA will begin fall sport programs including ag football, tackle football and soccer on August 2nd.

He noted the city is in a water crisis and due to the disrepair of the pipes, they city could be losing excessive amounts of water annually. He added that given the aging infrastructure, there is a potential for contamination of the water supply. He requested a comparison between water pumped and water billed to determine the extent of the loss and requested the item be placed on the next agenda. Discussion continued and the group determined that a comprehensive plan may be needed to track a priority of work in completing essential repairs to the system. e tracking would ideally include a visual depiction of the city piping system with coding as to which areas are in need of repairs.ITEM D UPDATE ON BILLY JACKS LEIN STATUSChief Strow provided an update as requested at last meeting and advised that sta had researched the issue and determined that that there is an lien on le.

He advised that the fee refund was requested because the owner felt the land classi cation was made in error. Discussion was held on the history of zoning in the area. Mrs. Debra Jones addressed the council and stated that the buildings were commercial and have always been used in that manner. She stated that she believed if they were left out of the zoning changes, this was done inadvertently. Councilman Goodman noted the Councils intention to move favorably on this issue previously. Councilman Cason moved to refund $720 to Mr. McMillan. Councilman Ross seconded and the motion passed unanimously, 4 O.ITEM F ANNUAL FINANCIAL REPORT AND AUDITSevern Trent Representative Stephen Bloom presented the 2011 FY Preliminary Audit draft. He stated that if the Council is comfortable to accept the draft, it can be submitted to the Auditor General in compliance with regulations that it be received no later than June 30th. Councilman Cason noted his concern in approving the draft based on the limited time provided for review. Mr. Bloom con rmed that sta was aware of the compressed deadline and advised that the Council was not required to accept it, noting that it is more important for the Council to have a good understanding of the report prior to approval. President Robinson con rmed that there would be no major adverse repercussions for going beyond the June 30th. Mr. Bloom did advise that a list would be published for those who had not submitted by June 30th but stated the City would inform the Auditor General that it was to be presented for review on July 2nd. Consensus was that the Council would delay approval until the July 2nd meeting and the item would be placed on the July 2d Agenda. At that time, Mayor Hethcoat invited Helen Painter to address the Council to review important aspects of the audit report. She introduced the 5 areas covered in the report. She described the Audit as an independent auditors report that provides and unquali ed opinion (which is the highest opinion the city can obtain) to establish that the Auditors believe the statements contained in the report are fairly stated based upon the audit procedures performed.ITEM G AIRPORT MEETING REVIEWCouncilman Ross advised that it was the rst meeting of the Airport Committee we had the opportunity to attend and he was able to learn a great deal about the airport and its activities. He stated that leases were reviewed and the group was provided an overview of funding and expenditures. He advised that a lot of information was given pertaining to economic development activities and e orts to encourage growth in the area. He stated that there was some discussion about establishing a separate Airport Manager who understood airports and how they operate. He suggested that this item could be reviewed by the Council. Councilman Goodman observed that there appears to be a general consensus among Airport Committee members, personnel and vendors that the City is not as supportive of the airport as it could be and stated that as a member of the committee, he is going to work hard to try to heal some of these existing rifts. He advised that an issue of concern is the existing authority under which the Airport Committee operates speci cally, as an advisory committee. e members mentioned the undue level of bureaucracy surrounding airport management such as leasing. He advised that review of leasing doesnt necessarily require the input level it currently receives from the member, noting the leases that are built based on a speci c criteria shouldnt require Council action. He noted that his emphasis would be on getting the airport and the City working together again. Councilman Cason asked which individuals were responsible for setting the agenda. President Robinson advised that responsibility falls under the Airport Manager. Councilman Cason clari ed with the Council that anyone who would like to add something to the Agenda should submit the request to Verdi. He then stated that process is contradictory to what this Council decided at the time the Airport Committee was reinstated adding that it was reinstated to act on matters of a referral nature, Mrs. Debra Jones, Airport Committee President, advised that she never saw the agenda until the evening of the meeting and con rmed that the Airport Committee had not set the agenda.ITEM H AIRPORT LEASESSeveral leases were presented to the Council for review. Councilman Cason moved to approve the extensions of new leases as presented. Councilman Goodman seconded. Mr. Koberlein advised that the Coastal Carting CPI needs to be assessed in July and that lease did not contain a speci c monthly amount. Councilman Cason amended to remove Coastal Carting Lease. Maria Sresovich addressed the Council and stated that she wanted to point out that there were two reports on the Committee meeting given and that Mr. Casons comments were consistent with the reports. She stated that it seemed like the Committee is reverting back to meeting for the purpose of making recommendations to the Council. On vote, the motion passed unanimously, 4-0. Mr. Koberlein encouraged the Council to approve the Coastal Carting lease and allow Mrs. Greaner to calculate the CPI. He stated that the leasing is simple and he viewed the placement of two council members on the committee as a positive way to help the Council and Airport Committee to get along. He advised that he was encouraged by the idea that a manager or liaison be designated for the Airport. He noted that the amount of the CPI increase for the Coastal Carting lease will be the only item left blank and that the Council can adopt the lease contingent upon Mrs. Greaner calculating the CPI. He stated that the City has come a long way on these leases and suggested it continue to remain simpli ed. Councilman Goodman moved to approve the Coastal Carting lease with authorization for Mrs. Greaner to make the appropriate corrections to the lease. Councilman Cason seconded and the motion passed unanimously, 4-0.ITEM-6 -PUBLIC PARTICIPATIONMrs. Debra Jones advised she was still looking for volleyball net for the park.ITEM 7 COUNCILORS ANNOUNCEMENTSCouncilman Cason noted that he didnt want to return to old business but that his question regarding the Airport agenda was something that was covered in the email that was distributed for the Council member that was absent.

Consumptive use permitting rules, developed under the authority of Ch. 373, F.S., are inconsistent among the districts. is results in confusion for the regulated public, particularly along the border areas of the districts, and inequitable treatment of similar applicants in di erent districts. e development of separate procedures and rules also is costly and ine cient. e goals of CUPcon are to make wateruse permitting programs less confusing for applicants; to treat applicants equitably statewide; to streamline the process; to provide consistent protection of the environment; and to provide incentives for behavior that protects water resources (such as water conservation). e agenda for both workshops includes an overview of CUPcon and discussion of proposed rule changes to Chapter 62-40, F.A.C.; permit types/thresholds; conditions of issuance; water conservation; 10-year compliance report; compliance monitoring; and speci c water management district rule amendments.
