Begins Educational Round Up ProgramPutnam Stops Grant Payment to Another Fraudulent Energy EndeavorA Florida-based energy company that received money through President Obama's stimulus package is under investigation by state and federal o cials for fraud, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam said Tuesday, July 24 at a meeting in Tallahassee.. e fraud was uncovered as part of an operational audit conducted by the state O ce of Inspector General of the grants administrated by the O ce of Energy, created in 1975 and moved under the state Department of Agriculture in July 2011. Putnam said the state halted pending payment on two grants once the fraud was detected, saving taxpayers nearly $2.5 million. e state's OOE was transferred to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, under the leadership of Commissioner Putnam, by the Legislature in 2011. Commissioner Putnam unveiled the “ ndings of his audit of the O ce of Energy (OOE), revealing both success and failures in the various energy grant programs managed by the o ce. He also announced savings of $2.45 million in taxpayer dollars as a result of fraud and indications of bankruptcy uncovered by his O ce of Inspector General. ese “ ndings are part of the audit report requested by Commissioner Putnam to evaluate the o ce, review its grant programs and identify fraud shortly after he assumed responsibility of the state energy programs. is is the “ rst audit that has been done since the O ce was created in 1975. It was a very complicated scheme to defraud taxpayers,Ž Putnam said. e audit also uncovered $198,000 in grants that were given to companies now in bankruptcy. One of the programs in the stimulus funding was supposed to build E-85 gas stations around the state; there were 20 grants issued, not one penny was spent, not a single outcome of that program,Ž Putnam said. So far eight of those programs are still ongoing but without any money being sent out yet and the other 12 have been halted. According to Putnam and in the audit report, $200-plus million was to be awarded but the previous administration (Gov. Charlie Crist) had a travel ban on even visiting the sites that were to receive the monies.  ey were never physically visiting any of these sites,Ž said Putnam. According to the audit, .....the sta was not permitted to travel, disabling OOE sta from conducting federally-required onsite monitoring to verify grantee progress and address issues related to progress reports, documentation collection and invoices.Ž e travel ban was lifted when Putnams o ce took over. Putnam said,  ere was a complete absence of leadership. e o ce was rudderless.Ž  ey were awarding $200-plus million, yet the previous administration had a travel ban on visiting the sites that were collectively getting more than $200 million, so they were never physically visiting any of these sites,Ž Putnam said. Based on the “ ndings and recommendations of this audit, the department has established performance measures that will enable it to hold grant recipients accountable for their contractual obligations and evaluate the continuing impact of these grant projects on the state of Florida. Commissioner Putnam issued a letter to all grant recipients, both completed and ongoing projects, calling for an update on progress and continuing impact by the end of August 2012. Commissioner Putnam plans to use this information to evaluate the e ectiveness of the grant programs in reaching their objectives. A copy of the audit can be seen and downloaded at: http://www.freshfrom” orida.com/newsroom/resources/IA_111202_Final_Report-Operational_Audit_of_OOE.pdf — information provided by the Department of Agriculture and Consumer A airs Commissioners Looking to Hold the Line on Spending at Budget Workshop By Kathy EditorLets meet in the middle,Ž was the cry at the Board of County Commissioners Budget Workshop Tuesday from agencies told previously to cut their budgets. For those just needing more funding, the future looks bleak as property values decrease and the economy with them. Chief Deputy/Finance Director Sheila Rees presented the proposed 2013 budget to the commissioners with the advisement that the board now needed to pass a millage rate for this new budget. e Board decided to roll back the millage rate to 8.5759 while holding the line and not raising assessments on property owners in order to give the county a budget of about $13 million dollars which will keep expenses to county residents about the same as last year. With property values declining this millage rate will still continue to fund the county budget. e dedication of a section of US 19 at 326 to the memory of Army Specialist 4 Michael S. Osteen was set for ursday, August 9 at 10 a.m. Sheri Johnny Smith was asked to cut $1.25 million from his budget. According to Sheri Smith, we have gone through it liberally line by line and have made what I consider to be very signi“ cant cuts to our original proposal.Ž Smith reduced expenditures on the Law Enforcement side by $365,517; Corrections by $128,108 including cuts in retirement bene“ ts for new hires and including the new health insurance increases now in e ect; Communications by $ 7,175. e total reduction in the Sheri s budget from cuts was $500,800 stating they have cut everywhere we know to cut.Ž According to Smith, If any more cuts come it is going to come in the form of personnel.Ž Smith stated that the mechanic they are presently using has saved them lots of money by maintaining the ” eet of patrol cars in good condition. Commissioners want vehicles rotated in and out in smaller batches each year to avoid buying them all at once. Commissioner Bell told Smith he appreciated the $500,000 (or 5.1 percent) in cuts and wanted to meet you in the middle, but, where do we go from here.Ž Commissioners stated that if the sheri cut deeply into the budget, they would be able in the future to hand back the monies when really needed. Elections Supervisor Connie Asbell had been requested to cut $25,000. Asbell stated that elections costs were going up and she wanted to split the di erenceŽ with the board. Commissioner Bell said at this point they would do that but upon further inspection of the budgets they may have to talk to Asbell on this again. Maggie Labarta, CEO and President of Meridian Behavioral Healthcare, Inc. reported to the board on the condition of mental care and substance abuse in Levy County. After audits she stated that in the new “ scal year they would close out with $2.2 to $2.4 million in uncompensated care which Meridian cannot absorb. e fall back is the law o cers and emergency rooms which are much more expensive than Meridian. ere has been a 9 percent increase in the number of people Meridian has seen for care. ey are now approved to accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and are accredited and licensed. It was stated that 2 percent of people diagnosed here with mental illness are under the age of “ ve. Meridian relies on state and county funds for 38 percent of the services they provide for indigent care and those quali“ ed for assistance. e county is required by law to give matching dollars based on population. e Department of Children and Families (DCF) is the agency that decides how much money has to be matched and the agency “ gures the countys share based on their proportionate share of population. Labarta said that Levy Countys share is funding deep-endŽ services for people with the most signi“ cant disabilities. Meridian was required to generate $2.7 million last year in matching funds. Levy Countys share in that is $209,000 based on population. at $209,000 draws down over $1 million in state and federal money. e commission is looking to lower their portion but Labarta said that will not support the current demand nor support a 5-day a week clinic in Levy County. e state is also reducing indigent care funds. ere will be a signi“ cant impact on services. Commissioner Danny Stevens said Levy County cannot match any more funds. Labarta explained e Suwannee County Sheri s O ce is attempting to identify a white female who was located on Monday July 16, 2012 in Suwannee County on the side of the roadway. e female su ered a head injury as a result of blunt force trauma and is currently in a medically induced coma at an area hospital. We have queried her “ ngerprints through AFIS, but it did not result in a positive identi“ cation. e female appears to be 20-35 years old, approximately 55Ž, 130 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes. She was discovered wearing cut o blue jean shorts, a Grateful Dead t-shirt and no shoes. If you can be of help identifying this young woman please call the Suwannee County Sheri s Department at 386/362-2222.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had called for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and President Obama to set in place stricter guidelines for gun control in the U.S. Putnam remarked, Florida has a strong tradition in upholding Second Amendment rights. e Florida Legislature has been very clear about that.Ž  ere continues to be an extraordinarily small number of concealed weapons license holders who break the law. For the most part, they are overwhelmingly law-abiding citizens who wish to be given a concealed weapons permit,Ž said Putnam. Since 1987, Florida has revoked just over 6,000 permits due to criminal o enses and of that only 168 were for gun-related crimes, according to state records. Since 1987, the state has issued 2.26 million permits. In that time, 15,500 applications have been revoked, 5,190 due to prior criminal history. e rest were due to incomplete applications. e list of registered concealed weapons permits is kept private. Putnams o ce has hired 50 full-time employees to process the applications from a spike in permit applications over the past two years with up to 50,000 permits being issued per month. e price for a permit was dropped from $85 to $70 earlier this year by State legislators. — information submitted by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer A airs Williston Fire Rescue responded to a reported “ re in a horse stable in Williston on July 29 at 2:01 a.m.. e “ rst Williston Fire unit to arrive on scene reported a fully engulfed horse stable complex. Moments later, Levy County Rescue Engine 783 arrived providing water to the Williston engine and personnel to assist “ re“ ghters already battling the blaze. Due to the size of the “ re, Command requested Marion County Fire Rescue for assistance, with extra manpower and water. e owners of stables advised Fire Command they had 10 to 15 horses in the stables and were only able to get out two ponies. Fire“ ghters removed the metal roof that collapsed to further extinguish the “ re. Fire Command started releasing “ re units who had been on scene over four hours around 6 a.m. Sunday morning and requested Bronson Fire Rescue to respond with their Tanker 70 to assist Williston “ re“ ghters still on the scene completing minor extinguishment of smoldering debris. Williston Fire Command released all “ re units at 8:03 a.m. Sunday morning. Levy County Emergency Medical Services was on scene to provide medical assistance and rehab for the “ re“ ghters.

The Levy County Journal 3AAugust 2, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyBuster’s Big SplashA brand new 54 Ford convertible pulled away from the curb across from Pepes Restaurant near the intersection of Caroline and William Streets. A Key West taxi angled in and a woman in a red velvet blazer got out. e cabbys arm extended from the opened window, pointing out the marina a short block up William where the masts of trawlers and a schooner bobbed gently in the chalky green water. In the bustle about the harbor a fellow known about as Buster was down a dock ladder, quick as a rabbit, with a bucket and brush. Buster Krebs was a quirky, curious little fellow who worked around that wharf on the Key West Bight. He was blunt and cantankerous, thought generally to be a crotchety conch … one of the islanders by birth. But in fact, hed appeared on the Key West scene little more than two decades earlier. Buster had most certainly had a life (half a century at least) before Key West. ough what that life was exactly, Buster never said. Few asked, as even life-long locals felt Buster Krebs to be as much of the key as barnacles, or an old brown pelican always about. Nobody remembers when the bird “ rst came. Its as if hed been there all along. Print or stain, the old fella was now simply part of the fabric of the place … until the episode known locally as Busters big splash. e joke was that Buster Krebs had hooked a giant “ sh one night and not landed him until the next year! ats because the “ sh “ rst stirred on Busters line about nine oclock on the 31st of December, and he didnt land him until noon of the next, New Years Day. It was quite an ordeal, though the nights “ shing had begun no di erently than usual for Buster. Hed washed down his last boat by six-thirty that evening and rode his rusty bicycle back to his rented room. is was a simple place with a private entrance at the rear of a bambooshrouded bungalow up a lane o William. Despite Busters disheveled personal appearance, the grimy sleeveless chambray shirt and stained khakis he always wore, his room was immaculate. Buster tossed his crumpled captains hat to a neatly-made bed. He hung his shirt on a hook behind the door. e room featured a small alcove with a hot plate kitchenette and tiny icebox. Buster washed his hands and ruddy face in the galley-sized sink. He fried some baloney in a pan on the stove, slicing o a raw onion to make a sandwich with chunks of Cuban bread. He stood looking out the window above the sink, eating solemnly and watching a rooster walk the ridgeline of a shed visible behind the bougainvillea in the next yard. ere was a box on the bedside table. Buster extracted a Lucky Strike and sat on the back steps in the blue shade of a banyan tree to smoke. is was the one cigarette he now allowed himself each day. He was down to that. Buster didnt drink alcohol anymore. He said that was because it confused him and got in the way of his cussing … the one vice he was steadfastly refused to tackle. It wasnt that Buster liked to cuss or even that he thought to cuss. He certainly didnt recommend cussing to others. It was purely that he was good at cussing. He was a natural, he said, and had a talent for it: Same as some do for poetry or the -----harp.Ž After dark, Buster hooked an old paint bucket on his handlebars and pushed his bike back out to the street. He kept his “ shing tackle in the bucket, clanking now against the brown frame as he peddled back up William to the bight. Buster “ shed out on the wharf most nights. Depending on the tides he might “ sh early or late, depending on the catch. Sometimes, weather allowing, he might be joined by another of his acquaintances, Pitch Friday. Originally from Mississippi, Pitch had bounced around the South playing minor league baseball his entire adult life. e Pitch FridayŽ nickname came about early on, when an old coach welched continually on promises to start him. Pitch had played his last, or ridden the pineŽ “ nally for the defunct Key West Conchs in the late 40s. Hed been a “ xture with the bums over on Mallory Square ever since. But despite that, Pitch was a reader and something of a learned man. He was quite a conversationalist, too, stirring the local chatter in much the same manner as troubadours did in their heyday. So it came about that Buster was out on the dock that night, assuming his usual position in his usual place. He had line out with a small blue crab as bait scratching deep in the dark channel. Pitch came up and they exchanged gru pleasantries before Buster started in on the too-small Hawaiian print shirt Pitch was wearing. Buster had another name for it which assigned such apparel to houses of ill repute. Pitch baited his line and countered with an apt description of Busters wardrobe, but he was no match for Buster when it came to cussing a thing. eyd caught nothing that night. en, about the time “ reworks began to thud, then pop, spraying brilliant color high above the lawn of the Casa Marina Hotel across the island behind them, Busters luck changed. His line moved almost imperceptibly at “ rst. Pitch said it was the crab latching to a rock or a submerged engine part in the outgoing tide. Buster said he knew a -----thing about “ shing and that it was a ------“ sh had moved his line. When Buster felt the line move again, he snatched his light rod above his chest and said hed set the hook sure and fast. He said hed felt the hook set solidly into supple tissue, like that of a “ shs mouth, rather than some rock-hard, inanimate thing. is was not exactly how Buster described the set, nor was one particular body part identi“ ed here as harbor for his hook. But he was absolutely certain he had a “ sh on. It was a big ---“ sh, a giant ------, Buster insisted, though Pitch was not a believer until about three oclock in the morning. ats when the line most certainly began to ease up more rapidly than the tide toward the dock. Could be a ray,Ž Pitch intoned with genuine conviction. Buster gathered his line, cranking steadily in the light stirred by darting moths around the exposed bulb overhead. en the incoming line was still, holding fast nearer the dock. It didnt move again for more than an hour. Buster tested the line carefully, certain that no matter what kind of “ sh, it was mammoth enough to snap his line in an instant. At best he suspected the Goliath on the other end of his rod to be mildly irritated by the itch of the small hook in his fat lip. For no apparent reason, other than the provocation of argument, Pitch retracted his conviction that Buster had hooked a ray. He decided that it was a tire or rubber boot maybe, shifting about on the whimsical persuasion of the current. Busters response was coarse and impolite, but Pitch Friday was immune to the caustic remarks of his friend. Oddly enough, it was in that instant that Busters line was suddenly loose and surfacing. e green water boiled below the spot of light speckled by moth wings. ere it was: the expansive, dark tail of a giant “ sh showing suddenly, if but slightly, before rolling back to the bottom. Ohhhh, I told you! Didnt I?Ž Buster crowed. Hes a -----jew“ sh, big as a big fat -----sow!Ž  at he is,Ž a wide-eyed Pitch agreed. He couldnt have been more astonished by the e ect of a mermaid surfacing. Now whatll we do?ŽWhatll we -----do!Ž Buster repeated with profane emphasis. Why we bring the -----up!ŽHow?Ž He ------comes when he wants to come,Ž Buster said wistfully. He comes when hes good and ----ready. You dont take a “ sh like this.Ž Not with the out“ t youve got, you dont take him,Ž Pitch muttered. Not with any ----out“ t. You could have a ------wire cable and winch like that hanging there,Ž Buster gestured toward a hoist nearby for hauling up large catches. A “ sh like this could rip the whole ------business up by the roots. He comes when hes ready to come, when he knows the will on the other end of the lines greater than his own.Ž By daylight “ sherman and crew, who werent still celebrating the New Year, drifted down to the dock to “ nd Buster slumped over the reel of his rod. Some sco ed and others ribbed, but Pitch Friday backed Busters play. Its down there,Ž he assured them leaning out. Bigger than an oil drum, maybe two from what I saw.Ž Buster wouldnt give up. It made no sense, even to him by then, except to say he simply wasnt giving up. Hed given up on other things, more important things, hed told Pitch in his delirium. But not this time,Ž he said. Not this ----time!Ž He was down to his last, he “ gured. It was him or the “ sh. Sooner or later one of them would have to give or break and run. It was later. Nearly noon and the small crowd on the dock had dispersed. Pitch Friday was asleep on the dock with his ball cap covering his eyes. e giant grouper began to rise. It was as if he simply released himself from the shadowy bottom and relaxed into a buoyance that brought him dreamlike to the shimmering surface of the water. Buster startled Pitch awake. He shoved the rod handle into Fridays hands, as if it actually mattered that the rod be held. Buster went for the hook on the hoist cable. He snatched it down and placed his small foot in and rode the hook over the side. e “ sh rolled lazily like a hippo in the shadow as Buster held to a ladder with one hand and wedged the hoist hook into the “ shs mouth with the other. It was a most improbable and seemingly unsportsmanlike conclusion to the catch, if one considers that the catch was not yet made. Buster Krebs insisted it was. He said the deed was done when the giant jew“ sh, almost 400 pounds heavier than was he, presentedŽ himself. e crowd reassembled as the gigantic grouper was foisted above the wharf. Among those hurrying up was a man with a camera and a press card. He insisted Buster pose with his miraculous catch and Buster, addled with exhaustion, complied with the photographers instructions. e little fellow stood erect, the “ sh taller, even with its tail draping upon the dock. His casting rod looked small and inconsequential, humorous even in relation to the gargantuan denizen of the deep. Some weeks later outside Saugerties, New York over 1,500 miles away, Neiman BernardHenri sat at breakfast examining his morning paper. A prominent Wall Street investment banker, he had already scoured the business news. Niemen turned then to the Sports section with a particular interest in the equestrian competitions. His wife, Kerstin was a top-ranked competitor. She also bred champion horses on their stately farm that had earlier been a jewel in the crown of her industrialist fathers vast estate, an estate now held in trust entirely to her bene“ t. So, Kerstins youth had been spent there, where white fences and thick hedges lined the paved drive up to the old brick manse. Now she and her husband spent as much time as possible at the farmŽ when not in the City,Ž where Bernard-Henris apartment overlooked Central Park. So it was that Neiman Bernard-Henri came across the photo of Buster Krebs and his giant jew“ sh. Bernard-Henri was most amused, as the big city Sports editor had intended in selecting it from others o ered on the wire. It was a humorous and playful diversion in an otherwise dreary 15th of March edition. Bernard-Henri folded that section back, halved and quartered it with Busters photo exposed just above the fold. It was there beside his plate when Kerstin came in from her morning ride. A servant in starched cap poured another co ee as the newspaper caught her eye. She brought it up instantly, scrutinized Busters image with the intensity of a desperate spy. Oh my. Oh my!Ž she said breathlessly. Yes, quite a catch isnt it?Ž Bernard-Henri said without looking up from the Arts & Culture page. You have no idea!Ž Kerstin Bernard-Henri gasped. en she told him. It was less than a week later that Kerstin Bernard-Henri, the woman in the red velvet blazer, walked out the Key West wharf. She stood where Buster Krebs was busy scrubbing “ sh chum from the afterdeck of a boat tied there. Shielding his eyes from the Key West sun, Buster looked up at the beautiful woman waiting with a jeweled clutch purse in her hands. Hello, Daddy,Ž Kerstin Krebs Bernard-Henri said.

The Levy County Journal4AAugust 2, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Big Lies in Politics Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateIt was either Adolf Hitler or his propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, who said that the people will believe any lie, if it is big enough and told often enough, loud enough. Although the Nazis were defeated in World War II, this part of their philosophy survives triumphantly to this day among politicians, and nowhere more so than during election years. Perhaps the biggest lie of this election year, and the one likely to be repeated the most often, is that the income of the richŽ is going up, while other peoples incomes are going down. If you listen to Barack Obama, you are bound to hear this lie repeatedly. But the governments own Congressional Budget O ce has just published a report whose statistics ” atly contradict this claim. e CBO report shows that, while the average household income fell 12 percent between 2007 and 2009, the average for the lower four“ fths fell by 5 percent or less, while the average income for households in the top “ fth fell 18 percent. For households in the top one percentŽ that seems to fascinate so many people, income fell by 36 percent in those same years. Why are these data so di erent from other data that are widely cited, showing the top brackets improving their positions more so than anyone else? e answer is that the data cited by the Congressional Budget O ce are based on Internal Revenue Service statistics for speci“ c individuals and speci“ c households over time. e IRS can follow individuals and households because it can identify the same people over time from their Social Security numbers. Most other data, including census data, are based on compiling statistics in a succession of time periods, without the ability to tell if the actual people in each income bracket are the same from one time period to the next. e turnover of people is substantial in all brackets -and is huge in the top one percent. Most people in that bracket are there for only one year in a decade. All sorts of statements are made in politics and in the media as if that top one percentŽ is an enduring class of people, rather than an ever-changing collection of individuals who have a spike in their income in a particular year, for one reason or another. Turnover in other income brackets is also substantial. ere is nothing mysterious about this. Most people start out at the bottom, in entry-level jobs, and their incomes rise over time as they acquire more skills and experience. Politicians and media talking heads love to refer to people who are in the bottom 20 percent in income in a given year as the poor.Ž But, following the same individuals for 10 or 15 years usually shows the great majority of those individuals moving into higher income brackets. e number who reach all the way to the top 20 percent greatly exceeds the number still stuck in the bottom 20 percent over the years. But such mundane facts cannot compete for attention with the moral melodramas conjured up in politics and the media when they discuss the richŽ and the poor.Ž ere are people who are genuinely rich and genuinely poor, in the sense of having very high or very low incomes for most, if not all, of their lives. But the richŽ and the poorŽ in this sense are unlikely to add up to even ten percent of the population. Ironically, those who make the most noise about income disparities or poverty contribute greatly to policies that promote both. e welfare state enables millions of people to meet their needs with little or no income-earning work on their part. Most of the economic resources used by people in the bottom 20 percent come from sources other than their own incomes. ere are veritable armies of middle-class people who make their livings transferring resources, in a variety of ways, from those who created those resources to those who live o them. ese transferrers are in both government and private social welfare institutions. ey have every incentive to promote dependency, from which they bene“ t both professionally and psychically, and to imagine that they are creating social bene“ ts. For di erent reasons, both politicians and the media have incentives to spread misconceptions with statistics. So long as we keep buying it, they will keep selling it. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMMilton Friedman’s Centenary OPINION Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateIf Milton Friedman were alive today -and there was never a time when he was more needed -he would be one hundred years old. He was born on July 31, 1912. But Professor Friedmans death at age 94 deprived the nation of one of those rare thinkers who had both genius and common sense. Most people would not be able to understand the complex economic analysis that won him a Nobel Prize, but people with no knowledge of economics had no trouble understanding his popular books like Free to ChooseŽ or the TV series of the same name. In being able to express himself at both the highest level of his profession and also at a level that the average person could readily understand, Milton Friedman was like the economist whose theories and persona were most di erent from his own -John Maynard Keynes. Like many, if not most, people who became prominent as opponents of the left, Professor Friedman began on the left. Decades later, looking back at a statement of his own from his early years, he said:  e most striking feature of this statement is how thoroughly Keynesian it is.Ž No one converted Milton Friedman, either in economics or in his views on social policy. His own research, analysis and experience converted him. As a professor, he did not attempt to convert students to his political views. I made no secret of the fact that I was a Marxist when I was a student in Professor Friedmans course, but he made no e ort to change my views. He once said that anybody who was easily converted was not worth converting. I was still a Marxist after taking Professor Friedmans class. Working as an economist in the government converted me. What Milton Friedman is best known for as an economist was his opposition to Keynesian economics, which had largely swept the economics profession on both sides of the Atlantic, with the notable exception of the University of Chicago, where Friedman was both trained as a student and later taught. In the heyday of Keynesian economics, many economists believed that in” ationary government policies could reduce unemployment, and early empirical data seemed to support that view. e inference was that the government could make careful trade-o s between in” ation and unemployment, and thus “ ne tuneŽ the economy. Milton Friedman challenged this view with both facts and analysis. He showed that the relationship between in” ation and unemployment held only in the short run, when the in” ation was unexpected. But, after everyone got used to in” ation, unemployment could be just as high with high in” ation as it had been with low in” ation. When both unemployment and in” ation rose at the same time in the 1970s -stag” ation,Ž as it was called -the idea of the government “ ne tuningŽ the economy faded away. ere are still some die-hard Keynesians today who keep insisting that the governments stimulusŽ spending would have worked, if only it was bigger and lasted longer. is is one of those heads-I-win-and-tailsyou-lose arguments. Even if the government spends itself into bankruptcy and the economy still does not recover, Keynesians can always say that it would have worked if only the government had spent more. Although Milton Friedman became someone regarded as a conservative icon, he considered himself a liberal in the original sense of the word -someone who believes in the liberty of the individual, free of government intrusions. Far from trying to conserve things as they are, he wrote a book titled Tyranny of the Status Quo.Ž Milton Friedman proposed radical changes in policies and institution ranging from the public schools to the Federal Reserve. It is liberals who want to conserve and expand the welfare state. As a student of Professor Friedman back in 1960, I was struck by two things -his tough grading standards and the fact that he had a black secretary. is was years before a rmative action. People on the left exhibit blacks as mascots. But I never heard Milton Friedman say that he had a black secretary, though she was with him for decades. Both his grading standards and his refusal to try to be politically correct increased my respect for him. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Give the Middle Class a BreakJuly 27, 2012 To the Editor: e U.S. Senate has voted to let the Bush era tax cuts for the wealthy expire, but because the middle class is hurting right now, the tax cuts for them is to be extended. Now the bill must pass the House. Republicans have been voting in a block to save millionaires money, but taxes are at a 30-year low, even with the expiration of the tax cuts for those making more than $250,000. Congressmen Nugent and Stearns should show leadership and not vote with the pack. Let them truly represent us. Drollene P. Brown, Morriston FL From the Editor: omas Sowell has been on both sides of the economical debate. Sowell was born in North Carolina, but grew up in Harlem, New York. He dropped out of high school, and served in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. He received a bachelor's degree from Harvard University in 1958 and a master's degree from Columbia University in 1959. In 1968, he earned his doctorate degree in Economics from the University of Chicago. Sowell has served on the faculties of several universities and since 1980 he has worked at the Hoover Institution. He is the author of more than 30 books. We are including his opinion and experiences on this page to provide the other side.

In the past Levy County contributed about $75,000 but that contribution has been shrinking and Labarta was before the board to state that by statute Levy County must contribute their share. Commissioner Stevens questioned where DCF comes up with their “ gures for mandatory share to be paid by the county. e answer from Labarta was to not reduce the previous amount and that the amount was to “ ll in the gapŽ between what Meridian can procure for themselves and Levy Countys portion of the mandatory “ gure from DCF.

When it comes to laptops there are a few di erent things that you can do in order to keep your laptop battery running longer. Laptops have two ways to run o power, the battery and the power cord. When it comes to power cord maintenance it is really easy only use it when the battery has discharged (down to 5%, more or less). Plug in the power cord and charge the battery back up to full capacity. en unplug it and store it in a dry safe location. It is NOT recommended to leave your power cord plugged into your laptop all the time. at is the best way to end up with possible damage to the power plug port and/or pin that is sometimes found in the port. When it comes to battery maintenance there are a few things to keep in mind. When the battery is brand new it usually comes in a discharged condition with low capacity. at is why the directions usually state to fully charge the battery, then unplug the power cord and allow it to discharge completely; then repeat the process three to “ ve times to ensure you have trained your battery to provide optimum performance. Also, if you arent using your laptop much each month, your battery may also go through a self-discharge process. So it is important to let the battery fully discharge and recharge at least once a month in order to make sure it will continue to reach full capacity. If you are getting a message that the battery is not charging, check to be sure that the laptops CPU is not in an electricitysaving mode. In order to rule this out, remove the battery, plug the power cord into the laptop and the electrical outlet, and then turn it on to wake up the processor. Once your laptop has run for a while you should shut it o and unplug it, put the battery back into the computer, plug the power cord back in, and turn the laptop back on to see if it will now accept a charge. A bad battery can also keep a laptop from coming on and booting up. To check this, turn on your laptop with only your battery. If the computer does not come on, remove the battery and then plug in your power cord to see if the computer will boot up without the battery in place. If it boots up with only the power cord, then you know that the battery is causing the issue and needs to be replaced. If your battery seems to be charging to full capacity but as soon as you unplug your power cord, it either shuts right o or the power meter percentage starts decreasing at an accelerated rate, try fully discharging and recharging the battery. If the problem persists, you may need to think about replacing the battery. Give us a call if you have any questions, or we can assist you with any laptop problems you may be having.

Russell said the Levy County program is o to a slow start and 50 percent of the funds must have been expended by March of next year. Russell was before the board to propose that the contract be amended to the NSP and get the program moving and still keep the funds in Levy CountyŽ by turning over in a subrecipient contract to the Housing Authority and let them do all ten homes. Russell said,  ey can keep all ten homes as rentals and our only requirement is that they follow your initial outline where at least three of the properties serve citizens in the county at 50 percent or lower of the area income median and the other seven would have to be income quali“ ed at 120 percent or lower than the area median income.Ž e Housing Authority would keep program income to maintain capital income and operating reserves. ere would be no expenses to the county, including insurance. Reserves over a certain dollar amount could kick over to the county if the contract is written that way. e Housing Authority would then be the one to identify the properties, acquire them and rehabilitate them. A $70,000 administration fee would be available to the county for a portion of the work required of them. Mr. Bob Williams then approached and agreed with the plan and is prepared to move forward. Commissioners decided to check on reporting/ auditing requirements for Williams. Russell said NSP will send someone to train and provide what is needed.

When “ rst setting eyes on wrack, you may think it is only dried, dying seaweed. But it is very much alive and “ lled with sea organisms that are essential to beach life and the creatures that live there. Marine organisms that wash up with this wrack are an important part of a beach ecosystem. Tiny crabs, sea cucumbers, seeds and pods are only a few of the things you can “ nd in wrack. Once, while walking the shore at Bahia Honda State Park in the Florida Keys, I found a brown hamburger bean. ats right, a hamburger bean! It is circular in shape, like a marble, with a thick brown or black line that goes around its center. On each side of the thick line the color is a lighter brown, making it look like a hamburger bun. ese little beans are from tropical rain forests and are native to the West Indies and western Africa. Can you believe the things we “ nd on Florida beaches travel that far? Another neat little treasure I found in beach wrack was on St. Augustine Beach just a few weeks ago. While pushing my toes through the wrack I spotted a purse crab. ese crabs get their name because female purse crabs have a purse-like chamber for holding their eggs. e little crabs live in shallow, sandy environments like beaches and are often found washed ashore in wrack.Summer Beach SafariWhat’s in that brown, dried seaweed on the beach? Not only can you nd neat sea critters, shells, seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is also the rst stage in forming sand dunes. Photo by MyFWCmedia Beach wrack eventually gets pushed high on shore because of the tides. When the tides go out, the grasses start to dry and die. Dying grasses bring all sorts of life to the beach. As the grasses die, fungi and other organisms attract tiny species like beetles, beach hoppers, ghost crabs and more. ese small insects and crabs become food for shorebirds. Dunlin sandpipers and other shorebirds migrate thousands of miles a year and depend on wrack during their journey for food. Without wrack and the organisms that live in it, the birds can die. Not only can you “ nd neat sea critters, shells, seeds and birds near beach wrack, but wrack is also the “ rst stage in forming sand dunes. Sand dunes are natural barriers against wind and water, and prevent erosion. ey form when wrack starts to collect blowing sand. As sand and other plant material collect in the wrack, the plant material can start to sprout and root. is continual process is how dunes form. So now you know that beach wrack isnt just icky seaweed that sits on the shore; it is a beautiful ecosystem important to the beach and beach life, as well as a place for unique “ nds and hours of curiosity.

Scott Signs Bill Assisting Senior A ordable Housing CommunitiesGovernor Rick Scott signed CS/HB 249, a new law that exempts Floridas a ordable housing communities for seniors from wasteful, duplicative and unnecessary state inspections and licensing fees. e bill was sponsored by Rep. Leonard Bembry (D-Greenville). Today there are approximately 298 a ordable housing communities for seniors in Florida that are “ nanced, insured or subsidized by US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which serve the extremely low, very low and low income seniors. Because these buildings are subsidized or “ nanced by HUD, they are held to strict federal standards with tight regulations. ere is also a state inspection of these buildings conducted by the Division of Hotel and Restaurants of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR). e state inspection is duplicative of the two thorough inspections already being conducted by HUD. Representative Bembrys bill will result in exempting these a ordable housing communities from the extra DBPR inspections. During these extremely challenging economic times, our state must “ nd ways to support the businesses of Florida. One way is to eliminate unnecessary, costly and time-consuming inspections, which are already being performed by other agenciesŽ said Bembry. With a group of supporters watching, the Governor signed CS/HB249 into law. After the bill was signed, several guests were presented with their own signed copy of the law and a pen. Gov.

Twenty-two of them were recognized for their environmental stewardship at the 12th Annual County Alliance for Responsible Environmental Stewardship (CARES) dinner on July 24. e CARES farmers were recognized and congratulated by Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick at the UF/IFAS Suwannee Valley Agriculture Extension Center in Live Oak. Don Quincey, Suwannee River Water Management District Governing Board Chairman, and Herschel T. Vinyard Jr., Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, were among the dignitaries who attended and spoke at the event. e Florida Farm Bureau and the Suwannee River Partnership (SRP) created CARES to bring agricultural associations, public agencies and institutions, and farmers together to increase environmental awareness on farms. rough the program, farmers voluntarily implement conservation best management practices (BMPs) designed to protect and save water. Farmers who implement BMPs save an estimated 1 billion gallons of water annually and achieve a nitrogen reduction of 3,250 tons per year. e SRP has set aside about $365,000 for cost share programs for irrigation system retro“ ts and other waterand fertilizer-e cient equipment and techniques for “ scal year 2012-2013. Some of the technologies and practices include: € Retro“ tting center pivot irrigation systems with lowpressure, low-volume nozzles to increase irrigation e ciency and decrease water use. € Irrigation management practices, such as irrigation scheduling and soil moisture testing, to ensure that farmers know how much and when to apply irrigation based on crop and soil needs. € Using fertigation systems to reduce the amount of fertilizer applied during a single application and provide for a more uniform application of fertilizer to improve the application e ciency. € Fitting tractors with GPS mapping technology that targets fertilizer and chemicals to crops, thus preventing application of excess nutrients to surrounding soil. € Nutrient management plans for proper handling of animal wastes and fertilizers. Farmers in the CARES program participate in a State of Florida BMP program. Participating agencies help the farmer select and implement farm plans which include nutrient and irrigation management. To maintain CARES status farmers must continue to operate and maintain conservation practices over time. Since its inception in 2001, the CARES program has recognized more than 500 farmers and ranchers statewide for implementing these practices. For more information about the CARES program, contact Hugh omas at 386.362.1001. You may also call your county Farm Bureau o ce or Scot Eubanks, Florida Farm Bureau Federation, at 352/384-2633.Farmers Recognized for Environmental Stewardship at CARES Dinner Ag Commissioner Adam Putnam attended the Suwannee CARES dinner in Live Oak where he discussed agriculture's role in growin g the state's water supply, addressing today's challenges through high-tech solutions and innovation.

Ellzey UnitedMethodist ChurchCorner of 336 & Hwy 24 Worship Service ............ 11 a.m. Sunday School. ...............10 a.m.Pastor Doug Fleming e jockeying for position began even before they entered the Arena; their grim faces etched with such determination that their intense focus was almost palatable. e faint hearted had long since given way and fallen back. All the pre-game hype meant nothing now. It had faded like a cheap perfume upon the neck of this epic struggle. e “ nish loomed just ahead. It would be an up or down call, with many lives hanging in the balance. I will never forget the last few moments; the agony wrought in my boys face as he clung desperately to his sisters pant leg, intent on staving o his inevitable defeat, refusing to admit the speed and strength accompanying her “ ve year age advantage had proven insurmountable. With only a few feet left she lunged for the prize, determined to see new doors opened for us all. It was at that very moment that the boys grip on her pants paid o and her jeans did the plumbers slide. She hesitated. It was the only break he needed. He climbed up her back and slapped that little elevator button before she could even blush. A warm magical light appeared. A resounding DingŽ “ lled the hall. David had slain Goliath! To my surprise several adults were crowded inside the elevator playing another game. ey cautiously guarded their little corners and stared at the little display panel like their elevation depended on their concentration. No one dared break focus to acknowledge us. I thought to myself, Whats with those silly elevator buttons?Ž A better question might be, Whats with us silly people?Ž Could it be sometimes we get so caught up in our own little challenges that we forget to run the bigger race God has called us to? Ill admit, elevator buttons do have a certain magnetic appeal, but surely we could tear away for just a few seconds to say hello to that living soul next to us. You know, the one Jesus died for? Ive been guilty myself. At times Ive just lumped people into categories based on whatever criteria I have handy, and overlook the fact there are real people in those sacks of skin. Yes, somewhere in there is a real person, thinking thoughts, making plans, feeling pain, facing struggles just like me. If only I could see people the way God does! Maybe Id have a little more compassion on that rude person at the cash register, especially if I knew what they had just gone through. Surely Id be more willing to o er a smile if I realized it might be the only thing that will pull them through the day. e truth is I should just do it anyway. Someone might say, Why should I risk any part of myself for a rude stranger?Ž Its much easier to just crawl up with an us four and no moreŽ attitude. Have you considered what a huge chance God took on us? e Bible says, (But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 NKJV) Jesus took a great risk in extending His love to me when I didnt deserve it, and it has cost Him dearly. I dont know why He did it. Love is just what He does. Its who He is. In the end, Love is all that matters. But anyway, one day God will punch that great elevator button in the sky for the “ nal up or down call. I pray well all be ready with hearts that have accepted and given His unconditional love; hearts that have weathered the risks and that are still glowing brighter than any old elevator button. I also pray well each be taking something with us on this last ride, the souls His love has won for Christ through us. Yes, I hope things will be looking up for us all that day.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received from samples taken 5/15/12 show that our system ex ceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant lev els (MCL), for Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Triha lomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter ( g/L) and the av erage level of TTHMs over the last year was 155.22 g/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 g/L, the aver age level of HAA5s over the last year was 60.22 g/L. What should I do? Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion. What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. What is being done? This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: We are flushing the system. We are reducing the chlorine residual to help reduce DBPs. We are increasing sampling for DBPs. We will inform you when additional samples show levels of DBPs below the MCLs. We have an engineer evaluating the situation. He will be making a recommendation in the coming weeks. There are several options avail able to us. For more information, please contact the town clerk, Rose Severino, at Town Hall (352) 486-4766. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and busi nesses).
