Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 89, NO. 6 50 CENTS THURSDAY, AUGUST 16, 2012 Back to School Lists and Times Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeySee page 6A See page 3ASee page 7ASee page 8BFaye Henderson Still Giving to Others Campaign Contributions and ExpendituresSee Levy Life 1BCheck out the Job OpportunitiesBurl ReeveElizabeth’s Kitchen By Kathy HilliardEditor e originator of a ” urry of attack ad paperwork and videos against local sheri candidate Bobby McCallum was arrested last Friday in St. Augustine for possession with intent to distribute cocaine, more than 5 kilos of cocaine. Federal agents put together a sting operation posing as narcotics tra ckers in an arrest right out of a piracy novel with treasure maps and buried cocaine bricks in Puerto Rico. While Rodney Hyden, 54, of Archer had been busy attacking local candidate McCallum it appears he was also instigating more trouble since June of this year in St. Augustine and Puerto Rico that landed him in jail with a $100,000 bail on Monday. A con“ dential source had given agents in Alachua County information connecting Hyden to 70 pounds of cocaine bailed in bricks and buried on a remote island in Puerto Rico. e cache was discovered by a friend of Hydens over seven years ago washed up on shore and he buried it all. Hydens friend later could not “ nd the stash so Hyden and his nephew made trips to the island and found the location but could not unearth it without tools to break up the hardened ground. Hyden was also looking to “ nd someone to transport the drugs back to St. Augustine. Upon “ nding the agents posing as tra ckers and their pilot, Hyden gave them the go-ahead and the maps he had made to try on their own in exchange for eight pounds of product in payment. Federal agents and authorities from Puerto Rico discovered 30 pounds of cocaine at the mapped location and transported it back to St. Augustine. Hyden met the agents outside a Gander Mountain store in St. Augustine where they showed him a du el bag in their trunk full of bricks of real and fake cocaine. Hyden put the bag into the rear seat of his truck and according to the complaint that is when the agents arrested him. e real drugs are in safe keeping for trial evidence.Instigator of Local Smear Campaign Busted for Drugs in St. Augustine By Kathy HilliardEditorAt the Board of County Commissioners meeting on August 7 there was much ado about plenty when it came to the Fire Districts in the county. After the “ rst few items on the agenda were taken care of, Teresa Barron, Vice Mayor of City of Chie” and, requested a workshop be scheduled for the BoCC, Public Safety Director David Knowles and the municipalities of Levy County. Chie” and County Attorney Norm Fugate also repeatedly requested the workshops. Commissioner Marsha Drew answered that before that could happen, Fugate and other municipalities who had not already done so needed to speak directly with Director Knowles, not email, and decide what the issues were so that there would be an agenda to discuss at the workshop. In the end it was Commissioner Marsha Drew who said, If we have a workshop with all the municipal o cials, well have to get 45 people in a room and well never get anything done with 45 politicians in a room.Ž Later the Board of County Commissioners were updated on the Operational Plan for the Levy County Department of Public Safety by Director Knowles including a printed booklet identifying the duty of the LCDPS to educate the community on the current needs of the department in order to improve the quality of services in our area. Director Knowles desire is to keep the Board of County Commissioners and the public fully informed of goals and changes in the process of providing services to the county. Knowles pointed out the statistics that make a di erence in the type of service needed in Levy County. Of the almost 41,000 residents 19.4 percent are 65 years or older and 5.6 percent are under “ ve years old. ese age groups are at higher risk for injuries and must be considered in the services to be provided by the department. Knowles was complimented by Commissioner Drew for his professional presentation of current activities at the LCDPS. e report identi“ ed underserved areas of Levy County as Fowlers Blu Rosewood, Morriston, Montbrook and South Levy. Knowles has made himself readily available for discussion with any area that wants to merge with the county and at this meeting the BoCC was presented with agreements drawn up by County Attorney Anne Bast Brown in cooperation with the Rosewood Volunteer Fire Department and the Town of Yankeetown for the purpose of merging with the LCDPS. Morriston-Montbrook VFD were the “ rst to enter in the County Fire Department followed by the Levy County Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Levy County Fire Rescue and Fowlers Blu Director Knowles stated that the LCDPS is not soliciting any Fire Department to merge with the county but welcomes any organization that wishes to work in a uni“ ed fashion with Levy County. Every merger is unique to that VFD with merger agreement language di erent for each Department concerning leases, signovers of equipment, transfers of assets and fees. As of this time Levy County now has: EMS Station# 1 at 7851 NE 90 St in Bronson behind the EOC and EMS headquarters. Fire Station #1 at 2830 SE SR 121 in Morriston.

McCallum beat Sullivan 2,412 to 1,612. He was immediately showered with hugs from jubilant supporters when the results ” ashed on the screen outside election headquarters in Bronson.  is is what Christian prayer and faith does,Ž said supporter Deborah Brock, one of the well-wishers who waited in line to congratulate the Republican winner. Noel K. Desmond, a third candidate in the Republican primary, earned 134 votes. McCallum said he would enjoy the win for the night, but would begin working hard the following day to beat Independent Lee Sullivan in the November 6 general election. McCallum said he wouldnt take Lee Sullivan lightly. He described the campaign against Evan Sullivan as very tough,Ž but felt his experience and dedication, and his education, would be seen as assets by the voters. Weve had an outpouring of prayers. Well get a short break and well go back to work.Ž Tammy Jones, assistant supervisor of elections, won big in her race against newcomer Brooke Ward, outpolling Ward 5,404 to 1,994. I just appreciate the support of friends and family. I want to work hard for Levy County. I want to be a servant,Ž said Jones, who has worked in the elections o ce for more than 18 years. Words cant express my appreciation.Ž Asked whether she plans to make changes in the elections o ce, Jones said every o ce holder wants to make improvements. I will always be listening to the voters of Levy County,Ž she said. County Commissioner Mike Joyner, appointed by the governors o ce earlier this year to “ ll an unexpired term, won handily in the District 3 Republican primary race taking 2,921 votes to 558 for Joseph Cino and 465 for Darryl Diamond. Joyner, who owns and operates a 385-acre cow-calf operation with his son and daughter in Morriston said he was humbled by the support of voters. Its so humbling, I just never have had a feeling like this,Ž he said. I just know I can do good for this county and the people of this county.Ž Kyle Quincey, a teacher for 8 years at Bronson Mike Joynercontinued on page 8A

Agents alleged that Holloway sold fraudulent invoices to Interstate Capital Corporation from a company she had “ ctitiously created named Polished Advertising.

The Levy County Journal 3AAugust 16, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyBurl ReeveA cold wind swept over the salt grasses laying back the needle rush and rippling the tidal creeks that meandered in great loops through the vast estuary. Beyond the brown grass line and gaping mouths of the tidal creeks lay the silver sheen of the Gulf, its water mirroring the sky so nearly one could hardly tell where the water ended and the sky began. Pendarvis turned right, making a wrong turn. His new white pickup truck moved slowly over the rough road out into the wiregrass. He came to a small isle of cabbage palms laced with cedars. Nearby was a crude cul de sac of shell where pole “ shermen sometimes parked and walked down the muddy path to the creek to “ sh. Pendarvis stopped. e chilling breeze had begun to gust, so he waited in the truck watching the white caps over the water beyond Tripod Point where creek access to the old hunting camp could be found. is was not the place, not Cabbage Key, where Burl Reeve had insisted they meet. Pendarvis wasnt sure, really. He glanced frequently in his rear view mirror looking for movement at the crossroads behind him. Reeves call had come late last night. It was an old voice Pendarvis had not heard in many years, the voice of a man in terrible pain. A man on medication or maybe drinking, too. A rough gust of wind ripped across the palm fronds. Pendarvis checked his expensive wristwatch. Now he saw that the speck growing larger in his rear view mirror was Reeves truck. Pendarvis remembered it, the old blue half-ton, a service truck the saw mill had let Reeve keep when he retired. Pendarvis recalled fully the stout, Bantam rooster of a man driving … a man who had lived with a knife in his boot. His code was a coarse one, his intentions not always good. Hed been foreman on a turpentine crew as a young man and made a harsh reputation for himself. Later, hed run a swamp logging crew and the rumor that hed once killed a man followed him into the dark hammock where giant cypresses grew along the coast. Maybe thats why hes coming, Pendarvis thought, raising himself up in the seat to zip his leather jacket. Maybe hes coming to commit murder or to confess murder, or to confess some other all but forgotten thing. Why not? Now he was dying. At least that is what Reeve had said of himself the night before. Reeve rumbled up close behind and stopped. Pendarvis got out of his truck, his longer hair tossing in the wind. e dented door of the old truck opened slowly. Reeve adjusted his greasy cap and slid heavily to the ground. ey neared each other with Pendarvis nodding. Reeve returned the gesture, but neither extended a hand. Pendarvis rested against the tailgate of his new truck and Reeve against the rusted metal grill of his. Now their hands were deep in their jacket pockets. ey did not speak at “ rst. Reeve had on a heavy denim jacket, the style railroad men once wore. He moved the wad of tobacco in his mouth to his other jaw and spit.  is aint Cabbage Key,Ž Reeve croaked “ nally. No?Ž Pendarvis asked, looking about as the wind tossed his hair di erently, then back again. I seen somethin movin out this way bout the time youd be getting here,Ž Reeve said. Figured it was you goin down the wrong road.Ž Well, I havent been out here in years, Burl. To tell you the truth, I thought this looked a little small for Cabbage Key, but you know what the years do to memory.Ž Years dont do nothin to mine, lessin they works like a magnifyin glass.Ž Reeve spat again. His voice was rough and coarse like the man. I reckon Im di erent from most folks like that. I remember everthang.Ž ere was a sudden rush of wind. A dead frond fell and a heron rose in the winds broad sweep over the immense wet meadow of marsh grass. Is that why were here, Burl? About something you remember?Ž Yes, it is.Ž Reeve said slowly, his “ erce eyes “ xed on Pendarvis. Well then, do you mind if we get in the truck?Ž Pendarvis asked, gesturing toward his own. We can talk in the truck. No sense standing out in this cold wind.Ž No!Ž Reeve answered sternly. I feel better standin up right now. I aint got long.Ž Pendarvis shrugged. He waited for Reeve to speak again, his eyes resting uncomfortably on the brambles of Reeves eyebrows cresting a face red and pocked as sun-burnished clay. I reckon Ill come to the point,Ž Reeve said in a voice “ lled with rancor. I been thinking orter collect on you, Mercer.Ž Pendarvis, perplexed, looked down and nodded his head solemnly. A crooked smile formed at the corners of his thin lips. He looked from his “ ne hunting boots to Reeves heavy brogans, scu ed and worn. Reeves right hand moved in his jacket pocket. Pendarvis watched, thinking the pocket looked too full. Well, Burl,Ž he said smiling nervously, I imagine there are a few people on this planet that think I deserve as much as killing. But I dont know why youd be one.Ž No, I dont magine you do,Ž Reeve sco ed. You aint give much thought to ol Burl, one way or thother have you now, Mr. Mercer Pendarvis, Esquire?Ž Its been a long while, Burl. Time gets away.Ž Do it? Dont seem long to me, Mercer. Seems like yesterdee you and the rest of um shamed me like you done.Ž Pendarvis winced.  ats what this is about, Burl? Some hunting camp horseplay, something that happened almost 50 years ago?Ž Reeves face reddened more deeply.  at what you call it. Horseplay!Ž he screeched. I call it a murder, if you ask me.Ž Pendarvis looked at Reeve inquisitively, his thoughts scattering like a confusion of quail. Murder?Ž he said beneath his breath. Yes sir! I was named for a liar. A cheat. I was winnin. Maybe for the “ rst time in my life, I was winnin big! All them big shots around the table, and the cards was a comin my way, brother.Ž Reeve jabbed his barreled chest with a thick thumb. It was my night, by God. My night!Ž It was a card game Burl. Just a friendly game of chance, thats all.Ž Now thats where yous wrong, mister sonny boy. I had my full pride to stake.Ž You pulled a knife on Terrell. You were drunk, Burl. Very drunk. I do believe you would have cut him or killed him maybe. at would have been the murder, dont you see? ats why Senator Lett threw that cast net over you. It might have been the only truly decent thing saving you from murder.Ž Reeve leaned forward and spat into a swarm of “ ddler crabs beyond the shadow of his truck. He looked up with “ ery eyes. Senator Nolan S. Lett, Sr. … he were the liar. He were the cheat!Ž Always was,Ž Pendarvis said with a wry smile. Yeah, he snatched me down in that nasty net. Mr. Big Boss Man!Ž Reeve shifted his weight. ere was pain in the movement and a grimace formed over his face. You dont think I remember bein rolled in that wet, sandy, mullet-stinkinnet? Bein synched up like a blistered, smoked ham!Ž Come on, Burl. Really ƒ ŽNo! You listen,Ž Reeves growled, his head bobbing like a boxer in the ring. It was Motes I reckon got ahold ah my wrist, so yall could break my knife loose. And you, Mercer! You done like them men told you. I seen ya, Mercer. I seen ya through that mesh drawed up tight against my other eye. You was laughin too, you was. You was all laughin! Howard Jarvis even, and him a deacon in the church!Ž Burl, now see here …  No! You was laughin. You all was a laughin and the high and mighty senator got his own boy to pull my britches down so he could put a boat paddle on my bare hide,Ž Reeves voice hissed like water over a hot griddle. And you, Mr. Big Dog Attorney, Mercer Pendarvis. You held me down with the others. You was all laughin and holdin me across that card table. And the senator beat me like I was a shirttail youngun!Ž Reeve took a deep, wheezing breath. en he continued, Id taught you that very day how to “ eld dress a deer. at very same day, and you held me down like that. Laughin with the rest, while I begged for mercy like a schoolboy, damnit all to hell!Ž e “ erce old man hung his head. He looked up again, saying softly, And Ive lived with … that.Ž Reeve began to cough. It was a deep hacking cough that continued until he was out of breath. He turned to rest against the front fender on the drivers side of his truck. Pendarvis saw before him a man in agony. He saw that forty years later, Burl Reeve still felt the severe sting of the boat paddle, a stinging that doubtlessly struck as a lightning bolt to his darkened soul. You okay, Burl?Ž Pendarvis asked compassionately. Reeve let the wad of tobacco drop from his jaw into the thick hand he cupped over his mouth. He tossed the chew out into the tall grass. Im alright,Ž he rasped. Your daddy was the only one done right by me,Ž Reeve continued. Werent fer him yalled ah brought blood with that paddle that night. eyd been a killin fer sure.Ž Suddenly the knife was in Reeves raised hand. He had brought it from his jacket pocket in a single motion with surprising swiftness. Pendarvis ” inched in the instant thinking what Reeve might do. en slowly, the angry old man turned to place the knife on the hood of his truck and shoved his hand back into his jacket pocket and lowered his head over the blade, as if saying grace over it. Put that knife away, Burl,Ž Pendarvis urged nervously. I aint ashamed of nothin I ever done.Ž Reeve muttered above the gust of wind. Not now, I aint.Ž Good God, man, I dont know what you have in mind here, but I was a boy then, Burl. Nolan Jr, he was a boy, too. Motes, Terrell, Jarvis and Jake Fieber … they were all liquored up, same as you.Ž I dont care about them,Ž Reeve said in a low moan. Well, why do you care about me, Burl? You dont think I remember? You dont think I cared about you like I should have? Is that it?Ž I cared bout you, Mercer,Ž Reeve all but mumbled, resting against the truck like a drunk man. I cared enough about you to teach you to hunt. I taught you to read sign and how to get right with the wind. I took you on like you was mine. I pointed out your “ rst buck. I helped to steady your aim. You was ten year old that month and was wearin a brand new pair of rubber boots. I still remember your birthday, Mercer.Ž Reeve paused, a deeper sadness entering his eyes. Do you know mine, Mercer? Do you know when ol Burls birthday is?Ž You … you were really good to me in many ways,Ž Pendarvis stammered. I did miss you when you left the camp, Burl. I guess I Levy County Fire Districts continued from page 1A might have looked you up to tell you that. I dont know. But I did tell Daddy I thought what wed done that night was wrong.Ž ere was bitter disbelief in Reeves eyes, cutting back then to the knife on the hood. Your old man, he was a busy man,Ž Reeve says vacantly. I knowed that. Him comin into camp late, leaving early, mostly. Pendarvis Mill was stackin a lot of lumber in them days. I was proud of my friend, Roland Pendarvis. I was proud one of the biggest lumber men in this part of the country thought enough of me to have me a member of his huntin camp. Him and the senator with all their big political buddies, and fellers like that. I didnt have nothin. But I could “ x what needed “ xin. I brung in more an my share of the game. I butchered mine and ever body elses, if you remember right.Ž Reeve waited for Pendarvis to nod in acknowledgement. I knowed how you loved the camp,Ž Reeve continued, so, I was always glad to bring you on in, or let you come out late, when I come. Your daddy trusted me like that. It meant somethin to me. Ill admit that, I reckon. He counted you among his life-long friends, Burl. You all were boys together. He did trust you.Ž At aint no reason fer trust, bein boys together. You trust Nolan Jr.? No,Ž Pendarvis answered reluctantly. I dont trust him, except to be who he is.Ž Reeve seemed to see something at a great distance in the last of the light over the Gulf. Your daddy had dozens of friends like me. Workin men totin the load. e more you was his friend, the more youd want to tote fer him. eres men like that. People just want to do fer um. ey want to be part of somethin that men bigger than their selves has made. I dont know why that is, but there has always been some men over others. But like I say, I was made a member of the camp and that was important to me. It was moren the good huntin woods. I could ah hunted up in the scrub there near Shell Mound with my Mamas people. But that werent the same.Ž Pendarvis had become impatient with the cold. Burl, what was it you say got murdered? You had a point to make here. And Im hoping its not a point you intend to make with that knife there,Ž he said, feigning good humor. Reeve didnt answer. He seemed to search the horizon, as if some black sail might appear across the chop of the steel gray water. Arent we talking about your pride here, Burl? You hold me to blame?ŽReeve turned to face Pendarvis squarely. You the big time lawyer now, Mercer. You the man with the brains and position. You tell me. Im jus a dumb old redneck … a man made a joke fer life. You tell me!ŽPendarvis watched the knife. e tone in Reeves voice cautioned awareness, and a metallic taste traveled to the tip of his tongue. Pendarvis waited no longer to know Reeves intentions. Look, Burl. You know as well as I do, you didnt get me out here to kill me. You know it, and I know it. Now whatever all this agonizing is about, Im sorry for you. Im sorry I got caught up in all that happened … wanting my manly place among men, I suppose. If Id truly been a man, Id have put a stop to it myself. But I wasnt. I was a boy then. But Im man enough now to say, Im sorry. I ask your forgiveness, Burl.Ž Reeve looked up at Pendarvis with an eye as cold as the blue blade of the knife. Im ah “ xin to give you somethin that I had fer you a long time, you privileged whelp.Ž e knife was suddenly in Reeves hand again. Frozen in disbelief, Pendarvis waited within himself. e metallic taste trailed back along the edges of his dry tongue. Reeve held the knife shakily while he reached with his other hand into a deep pocket of his jacket. A small notebook heavily bound vertically and horizontally with thick twine and boot string appeared in his hand. Reeve cut the bindings in the twilight to open the book before him, letting the knife fall to the crushed shells in the space between them. Pendarvis waited with abject relief while Reeve fumbled through the gnarled pages.  is here is what I want you to have and hold. is is all there ever ought to a been.Ž Between the lined pages were yellowed photographs, their scalloped edges bent or frayed. Each photograph included Pendarvis as a boy, and most included Burl Reeve nearby in the happiest days of that camp. Pendarvis swallowed deeply, before attempting to speak. Reeve raised a cautioning hand. He would not hear any more, nor would he speak again that night. He would return to his truck with a painful limp, an old injury sti ening in the cold. Pendarvis waited, watching the distant tail lights of Reeves truck disappear behind the dark of the marsh grass. Pendarvis retrieved the knife. A night bird rose beyond the palm shadows, screeching away into the wind. Pendarvis saw the ” icker of Reeves truck lights once more. e lights re” ected dimly upon the sand road where it climbed from the marsh back into the woodland. ere the deer were feeding while the moon was rising. Pendarvis knew the trails the deer would follow back, deep into the slough before daylight. ey were the trails Burl Reeve knew before him, the trails Reeve had taught him but would never hunt again.

Editor, Levy County Journalrequested to be heard concerning the budgetary impact of the Fowlers Blu merger with the county.Ž Fugate said he understood that there would be two “ re“ ghters, seven days a week, 12 hours per day. Fugate calculated this to be 84 hours per week but Commissioners pointed out it is about two positionsŽ not two individual “ re“ ghters. e actual “ re“ ghters will be rotated individually to cover the two positionsŽ allowed for in the budget. Fugate continued to press and was answered by Commissioner Ryan Bell that there is no increase to the budget for these positions. Fugate pressed further on the issue and Commissioner Drew requested that he please speak to Director Knowles who she said, ..is an excellent communicatorŽ by making an appointment with the director who could answer any and all questions. Yankeetown Council Member Dawn Clary gave thanks for the opportunity to merge with the county at this point with praise for Director Knowles and his help in their process of providing vitalŽ services for Yankeetown. e Board approved the merger. Next, approval was requested by Rosewood and approved by the Board. e Rosewood VFD stated that they needed the daytime “ re“ ghters as the volunteers all had daytime jobs and they wanted the citizens of the area to be fully protected. Director Knowles brought up the renewal of the contract with District 13, the unincorporated area around Otter Creek. Commission Chairman Danny Stevens answered a question on the services provided to District 13 saying,  e Board of County Commissioners funds the Town of Otter Creek to provide “ re service in the area for the county. Somewhere along in the process the Town of Otter Creek contracted with the City of Chie” and to provide “ re service for them. It appears that the amount of money the Board of County Commissioners has given the Town of Otter Creek to provide “ re services in the unincorporated area has also been used to fund “ re services in their municipality and it appears to be a direct pay-through from the Board of County Commissioners to Otter Creek to the City of Chie” and. And that is the discrepancy, and I think last year and the year before that was the same discussion; that was not what the money was there for.Ž Commissioner Drew noted while citing two years of records with 45 calls it appeared that 28 of the calls were in the city and 17 in the county. Drew said, If we just took that money and there were 17 county calls and if that money was just spent on county calls that would be about $4,500 a call. But it is not being spent that way, it is being spent within the city limits, within town limits.Ž e supporting information came directly from the City of Chie” ands records and their contract with Otter Creek according to Knowles. Chairman Stevens explained that this came before the Board last year and the Town of Otter Creek was requested not to do a direct pay-through of the county monies to the City of Chie” and. e agreement states that the monies given to Otter Creek are for the town to provide services for the unincorporated areas of Otter Creek. Using the direct pay-through violates the agreement. Stevens went on to say that if the Town of Otter Creek wants to contract with the City of Chie” and they are most welcome to do so and it is not a problem. Chie” and Attorney Norm Fugate asked if the communication with Director Knowles is so good, why did they not communicate with the City of Chie” and over this issue. Commissioner Stevens said, Because we have a contract with the Town of Otter Creek.Ž Fugate stated, but you are bringing Chie” and into itŽ to which Stevens said, We are not bringing Chie” and into it, it just a connection and you know that to be true.Ž Stevens said the Boards job today was to agree or not to agree to continue the contract with Otter Creek. Fugate pressed on with Commissioner Drew clarifying the issue stating, We have not been getting our moneys worth because Otter Creek has not been paying to the “ re“ ghters within their municipality.Ž Fugate said, ƒ they are getting better than their moneys worth.Ž e Board voted to send a letter to Otter Creek to terminate the contract. Drew clari“ ed that the citizens of Levy County are paying for the “ re services in Otter Creek but the Town of Otter Creek is not contributing any portion. e contract calls for the monies sent to Otter Creek to be given to Otter Creek “ re“ ghters to protect the unincorporated areas in District 13. Commissioner Stevens further clari“ ed that the City of Chie” and contributes to its municipal “ re protection but the Town of Otter Creek is not doing that. When questioned about the contributions from other municipalities, the Board said the contract with the Town of Otter Creek is what is before the Board this day.

The Levy County Journal4AAugust 16, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 The Paul Ryan Choice Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateGovernor Mitt Romneys choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his vice-presidential running mate is one of those decisions that seem obvious -if not inevitable -in retrospect, even though it was by no means obvious to most of us beforehand. Anyone who wants to get a quick sense of who Paul Ryan is should watch a short video of a February 2010 meeting in which Congressman Ryan politely, but devastatingly, schoolsŽ Barack Obama on the utter fraudulence of the statistics that the Obama administration was using to claim that ObamaCare would reduce the de“ cit. at video is available on the Drudge Report. As a long-time member, and now chairman, of the Budget Committee in the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan is thoroughly familiar with both the facts and the “ ctions in the federal governments budget. In recent years, the “ ctions have grown much bigger than the facts. But, as Congressman Ryan reminded the president, hiding spending is not the same as reducing spending. If this years election is going to be decided on the basis of hard facts, the Obama administration is doomed. But the Obama campaign is well aware of that, which is why we are hearing so many distracting innuendoes and outright lies about such peripheral issues as what Mitt Romney is supposed to have done while running Bain Capital -or even what is supposed to have happened at Bain Capital, years after Mitt Romney was long gone. e Obama campaigns big smear, about how Romney is supposed to have caused a woman to die of cancer, has been exposed as a lie by CNN, hardly a Republican network. What smears like this show is that the Obama administration cannot run on its track record, so it has to run on distractions from the countrys real problems. When Senator Harry Reid claims that Mitt Romney hasnt paid his income taxes, and demands that Governor Romney disprove this unsubstantiated allegation, that raises an obvious question as to why the Internal Revenue Service has not prosecuted Romney, instead of leaving that to a partisan politician in an election year. What makes this a farce is that Senator Reid himself has not released his own income tax records, while claiming that Romneys release of only two years of his income tax records is not enough, even though it has been enough for other candidates in other years. If Mitt Romney releases all his tax records going back to his childhood, it will not put a stop to this “ shing expedition, much less bring an apology when those records show nothing illegal. It will just provide more material for making more distracting claims to change the subject from the track record of the Obama administration. When Ronald Reagan ran against President Jimmy Carter back in 1980, he asked the question that should be asked of the voters when any president is seeking reelection: Are you better o than you were four years ago?Ž Four years later, when Reagan ran for reelection, he implicitly asked and answered that same question in a campaign commercial titled Morning in America,Ž which listed the ways the country was better o than it had been four years earlier. Dont look for any Morning in AmericaŽ ads from Obama. Mourning in AmericaŽ might be more appropriate. is election is a test, not just of the opposing candidates but of the voting public. If what they want are the hard facts about where the country is, and where it is heading, they cannot vote for more of the same for the next four years. But, if what they want is emotionally satisfying rhetoric and a promise to give them something for nothing, to be paid for by taxing somebody else, then Obama is their man. is is not to say that the public will in fact get something for nothing or that rich people will just pay higher taxes, when it is easy for them to escape taxation by investing overseas -creating jobs overseas. Even if most Americans do not have their own taxes raised, that means little, if they end up paying other peoples taxes in the higher prices of goods and services that pass along the higher taxes imposed on businesses. ere are no doubt voters who will vote on the basis of believing that Obama caresŽ more about them. But that is a faith which passeth all understanding. e political mirage of something for nothing, from leaders who care,Ž has ruined many a nation. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMMeet the Real Workers Obama Screwed Over OPINION By Michelle MalkinCreators SyndicateChutzpah overload in full e ect: President Obamas sleazy super-PAC, run by his former White House spokesman Bill Burton, just released an ad accusing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney of causing the cancer death of a steelworkers wife. Its not just a slanderous and false attack. Its a foolish attempt to camou” age the administrations massive jobs death toll, politicized pension plundering and Big Labor bailout cronyism. And it will back“ re big time because the thousands and thousands of true victims of Obamas economic wreckage are speaking up and “ ghting back. Lets dispense with the Romney = murdererŽ meme “ rst. e warped Priorities USA ad features the claims of one Joe Soptic, a former employee at the Kansas City-based GST Steel plant. e plant went bankrupt years after Bain Capital acquired it. Soptic blames Romney for the loss of his job and health insurance -and for the subsequent death of his wife a short time afterŽ the plants closure. But Romney stopped working for Bain in 1999. e plant closed in 2001. And Soptics wife died in 2006. Oh, and Soptic admitted to CNN on Tuesday afternoon that the family in fact had health insurance at the time of Soptics wifes death. But its still all-powerful, timetraveling, omnipresent Darth Romneys fault. Obama ” ack turned super-PAC slimemaster Burton shrugged o the facts and doubled down on the campaigns class-warfare bloviation. Families and individuals had to “ nd new jobs, new sources of health insurance and a way to make up for the pensions they lost,Ž he told Politico. Mitt Romney has had an enduring impact on the lives of thousands of men and women, and for many of them, that impact has been devastating.Ž Yet, the Soptic story is the best they could scrape together? Stamp this one EPIC FAIL.Ž While Team Obama promotes fables to indict Romney, the incontrovertible stories of the current administrations economic malpractice are “ nally getting out. In 2010, I “ rst reported on how Obamas UAW bailout threw tens of thousands of nonunion autoworkers under the bus. Its the ongoing horror story of some 20,000 white-collar workers at Delphi, a leading auto parts company spun o from GM a decade ago. As Washington rushed to nationalize the U.S. auto industry with $80 billion in taxpayer rescueŽ funds and avoid contested court termination proceedings, the White House auto team and the Treasury Department schemed with Big Labor bosses to preserve UAW members costly pension funds by shafting their nonunion counterparts. In addition, the nonunion pensioners lost all of their health and life insurance bene“ ts. e abused workers -most from hard-hit northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states -had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees at Delphi/GM. Some workers have watched up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish. I worked for 34 years at GM/Delphi Corp. When Delphi went bankrupt, we lost everything,Ž Dana Strickland of Michigan wrote me. Because I was salaried (middle management), we lost our pension and health insurance. I did not belong to the union, so GM/Delphi could have cared less. I have never felt so betrayed. We never hear this brought to the publics attention. People need to know how we were screwed, while the Obama administration kissed up to the union.Ž Im one of the Delphi Salaried Retirees that lost the health care, life insurance and 67 percent of the pension I was promised in retirement after working hard for 40 years,Ž Charles Stone of Michigan e-mailed. Words cannot describe the frustration and let down these events have thrust on my familys lives, and to have GMs rescue all sugar-coated in the current political environment is like putting lipstick on a pig. ... We will continue to “ ght to right this grievous wrong.Ž Tom Rose of Ohio added: I am one of the 20,000 salaried retirees that lost all of my health care and -in my case -a 40 percent pension cut. So I am now paying increased health care costs with fewer pension dollars and contributing what is left to our lawsuit to correct this injustice. Meanwhile, the politically connected union has their full pension and 90-plus percent of their health care. You have hit upon the key question: How can our own federal government pick winners and losers amongst its own citizens?Ž rough two costly years of litigation and investigation, the Delphi workers have exposed how the stacked White House Auto Task Force schemed with union bosses to cherry pickŽ (one Obama o cials own words) which “ nancial obligations the new Government Motors company would assume and which they would abandon based on their political expedience. Obamas own former auto czar Steve Rattner admitted in his recent memoir that attacking the unions sacred cowŽ could jeopardizeŽ the auto bailout deal. In June, 20 months after a federal judge “ rst ordered the government to cooperate, the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association broke through the administrations information stonewall and dislodged 62,000 pages of documents in their lawsuit to right the administrations wrongs. As e Daily Caller reported on Tuesday, the documents included internal government emails (that contradicted) sworn testimony, in federal court and before Congress, given by several Obama administration “ gures. ey also indicate that the administration misled lawmakers and the courts ... and that administration “ gures violated federal law.Ž Meanwhile, the Delphi workers who got shafted are getting in the faces of the administration and the public with a new web ad produced by conservative advocacy group Let Freedom Ring. ey are asking, Why, Mr. President? Why?Ž ey -and America -deserve answers and justice, not more Bizarro World smears and fantastical bedtime stories.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 continued on page 8ALetter from the EditorDear Editor: I voted this morning and I tried to do the best job I could. Without personal knowledge of each candidate it has become a daunting task to determine the truth and this is in Levy County. I am reminded of something that happened in the Supreme Court when it received a case concerning the First Amendment right to say that you are a decorated war hero when in e ect you werent. e Court decided in favor of the Freedom of Speech clause of the First Amendment; in e ect saying it is our Constitutional right to lie. Basic rights are being taken away from us by our own court system. My concern primarily is the National Election this coming November. e political ads can say just about anything and it is OK to lie. How do you discern the truth? It doesnt take much study to determine that most of the News Media, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC and NPR are a collective news source which pretty much says the same thing. en there is FOX News which gives a di erent slant on the news. Collective reasoning mandates that Fox News is lying for ALL the other news sources cant be wrong. erefore, who watches Fox News? I for one want to hear divergent opinions. e crime and it approaches criminal that the News Media no longer presents the NEWS. ey produce their slant, their opinion of the news. I for one am outraged. I am fully capable of making my own determinations. I just need the facts. e whole truth and nothing but the truth. Now, we as the public or as President Reagan used to say, the silent majority have to “ lter out truth from lies or near truths to determine who will lead this country. e majority of the media have portrayed the Tea PartyŽ as a right wing, bigoted, racist, homophobic branch of the Republican Party. is couldnt be further from the truth from my observation. As best as I can determine the grass root movement of the Tea Party is made up of white, black and Asian men and women who want our Government to return to the Constitution. Top of their list from my observation is that they want the Government to be returned to people that is a constitutionally limited Government. e Tea Party wants Governmental spending to be greatly reduced to include a balanced budget; that is they want the Government to become “ scally responsible. Lastly I believe the tea Party wants Free Markets; removing Governmental control over business and allow business, small and large to fail or succeed as the free market dictates. Top of my personal list of wants for our Government is to free up energy exploration and to develop Coal, Oil/Gas and Nuclear energy sources. Sure, as a side line to look toward the future with exploration moving away from fossil fuels toward cleaner energy forms. But our Government has gone Green CrazyŽ and the Presidents stimulus package spent multiple billions on Failed Green Energy businesses which were only in the research and development stage and not being a viable replacement for fossil fuels. We need to become energy independent! Lastly our own values as American Citizens must be considered in this next Presidential Election. e sanctity of the Family must be preserved at all costs even to include an amendment to our Constitution to establish that Marriage is between one man and one woman is is not to exclude anyone who chooses to live as they choose. e right to life must be mandated. Since Roe v Wade more than Fifty Million babies have been terminated and much of which had nothing to do with rape or incest or the health of the mother. e next coming issue will be the discrete elimination of elderly people who cant a ord e ective health care. Our Constitution protects the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Stop the assault upon Christianity. Tolerance has been the mantra of the Elite. Tolerance toward those who vow to destroy you and me as being the Great Satan. Yet if a Cross placed on a hill in the desert, In God we Trust on our Money and the expression of Christian beliefs concerning abortion and homosexuality have become points of litigation if not hate crimes. We as a Nation must return to common sense. We are a hard working society of men and women who choose to tell the truth, who want their children to become respectful citizens, and to “ t into the work force to forage a living as best they can is our hope. is class segregation of the rich as doing an injustice to the poor is

Both Vista and Windows 7 came out with some great ones, such as the Windows Sidebar, where you could put mini-apps such as a stock ticker, clock, weather guides or simple games. However, true to form, as computer technology has continued to advance, so have the cybercriminals that come up with new ways to attack it. Gadgets are bits of HTML codes that work with a few rules and no security measures. So, unfortunately for us, our beloved gadgets are an invitation to malicious hackers looking for a way into our operating system! e Microsoft Security Advisory Board posted an article on July 10, 2012, saying Gadgets installed from untrusted sources can harm your computer and can access your computers “ les, show you objectionable content, or change their behavior at any time.Ž is basically means that a potential hacker can get into your computer system through an unsecure Gadget operating in the Sidebar. And once it has gotten in, it will create all kinds of havoc on your computer system. Microsoft is warning us now to turn them o as soon as possible to prevent a total system takeover. eyve learned that because of the gadgets, hackers may be able to get complete and total access to your computer where they can install spyware, delete data, hide system “ les, and even create false user accounts. e risks increase if this was to happen to an administrators account which has more access to the important system “ les. To help assist with this issue Microsoft recommends that you make sure you have run all of the recently released security updates through Windows Update. If you are still not sure if the Gadgets feature is in fact disabled, you can visit the Microsoft website to download a free disabling tool called Microsoft Fix It. Also, making sure that you have an active Antivirus on your computer will also help keep it protected. e more the merrier, however, is not the case with antivirus suites. If you have more than the one trusted antivirus suite on your computer they will not work properly and will leave your computer unprotected. Microsoft has worked on ways to resolve this issue and put have similar features into the new upcoming operating system Windows 8, which is said to be a more secure infrastructure. It will provide an application style experience for a smoother experience that closely resembles the Android operating systems used on smartphones. So even though the cybercriminals are doing their best to “ nd ways into your operating system, Microsoft is working with other major companies to “ nd more e cient ways of keeping them out.

All affected property owners have a right to appear at the hearing and to le written objections with the County Commission within 20 days of this notice. If you decide to appeal any decision made by the County Commission with respect to any matter considered at the hearing or at any subsequent meeting to which the Board has continued its deliberations, you will need a record of the proceedings and may need to ensure that a verbatim record is made, including the testimony and evidence upon which the appeal is to be made. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, persons needing a special accommodation or an interpreter to participate in this proceeding should contact the County Clerk's Of ce at (352) 486-5266 at least seven days prior to the date of the hearing. Hearing impaired persons can access the foregoing telephone number by contacting the Florida Relay Service at 1-800-9558770 (Voice) or 1-800-955-8771 (TDD). The assessment for each parcel of property will be based upon the total number of lots on which a Single-Family Residential Unit has been or can be constructed or sited in accordance with applicable laws and regulations on the date the assessment is imposed. A more speci c description of the services, the municipal service bene t units, and the method of computing the assessment for each parcel of property are set forth in the Preliminary Rate Resolution adopted by the County Commission on July 17, 2012. Copies of the Master Service Assessment Ordinance, the Initial Assessment Resolution, the Final Assessment Resolution, the Preliminary Rate Resolution and the updated Assessment Roll are available for inspection at the of ce of the County Coordinator, located at the Levy County Administration Building, 355 South Court Street, Bronson, Florida.

Whether it is true or not, I have recently been advised that one political party is submitting voter registration information along with applications for food stamps and this is deplorable. I have nothing against someone who is down on their luck taking bene“ ts but to solicit votes in this manner is shameful. Giving bene“ ts to illegal aliens when many deserving citizens are unable to get them is also just plain wrong. e wealthy among us are the job suppliers. I have never heard of someone on welfare giving job opportunities. Tax the rich and give to the poor may have worked for Robin Hood but not in the United States of America. I believe that if our Government is to have an Income Tax system as we understand it, it should be for every American Citizen. ose who make more pay more and those who make less pay less but NO free ride for anyone. Why not go to the Fair Tax which is a consumption tax. Well I have said my piece. I am so concerned that we as a Nation will be destroyed from within. We need to return to what President John F.

On August 20, they will begin this timeless ritual, their “ rst day back. Children will face new challenges, making new friends, new teachers and for some, a new school. With this change comes danger. Children are at an increased risk from transportation-related injury such as motor vehicle crashes, bicycle related injuries and pedestrian injury. Tra c patterns change as parents, bus drivers and the children themselves, rush to school. Increased congestion around the schools entrances and exits become the focal points for law enforcement and citizens alike who try to navigate in and out of the school zones, all the while trying to hurry. It is time for everyone„motorist, parents, educators and students„to improve their tra c safety practices. School buses make multiple stops each morning, most of which are not part of the everyday motorist schedule. Most child related injury as related to our buses occur during the time they enter or exit the bus. e danger zone for our children extends 10 feet from all sides of the bus. Operation Safe Start began three years ago and will continue. e Sheri 's O ce will be present to assist in the safe and e cient welcome of our students back to school. For the “ rst three days of school, each school will have a Uniformed Deputy assigned to greet our children and assist the sta Resource O cers, Volunteer Citizens on Patrol (COPS) and Uniformed Patrol Deputies will be monitoring the school zones and bus stops in marked and unmarked vehicles looking for tra c violations. We urge all of our parents, educators and students alike to travel safe and be alert to the dangers as they travel toward their next adventure in life.Operation Safe Start with the Levy County Sheri s O ce By Kathy HilliardEditor Alice Faye Henderson married her Chie” and High School sweetheart and next door neighbor H.C. Henderson on August 15, 1959. And that love continued through the 52 years of their union which produced sons Skipper and Adam. Many in Levy County were the recipients of her good works and charitable deedsŽ as she also made a wonderful home for her family like the virtuous wife in Proverbs 31. Faye went to her Lord and Maker on August 2, 2011 at the age of 70. And Faye is still giving to Levy County in the Alice Faye Henderson Memorial Scholarship fund made possible by donations from the many people of this community and elsewhere who knew and loved her and wanted to honor her memory. e recipients of the 2012 Alice Faye Memorial Scholarship of $1,000 are: Maria Danielle McGee who is attending Tallahassee Community College majoring in Radiology and Shelby Leanne Mills who is attending the college of Central Florida and majoring in Animal Science. e scholarship fund is administered through the Levy County School Foundation.Pictured left to right: Shelby Mills and Maria McGee holding a picture of the Mrs. Henderson and in the back is Adam, Skipper and Mr. H.C.

We waited on Tony to pluck himself a salad and we said the blessing. e waitress slid to a stop and ” ung three straws onto the table. Coke,Ž Tony grunted anticipating her question. Sweet tea,Ž Heath chimed in. With a startled look on my face, I gasp, Did you just call her sweetie?Ž Not so much as a smile erupted from anyone. It was not the “ rst time Id used that joke. Nevertheless, I was pleased with myself. I always loved to see the look on Heaths face as he tried to think of a way to disown me as his brother. rough the lettuce crunching and dough smacking a few idle comments were cast about in hopes that one of us would hook into something worth talking about. It was always risky business; Heath could jump up at any time and methodically start detailing his ceramic tiling techniques. I was determined not to let that happen, so I frantically searched my mind. en I remembered that during my shower that morning God had revealed to me the meaning of life. BooYah! No grout today little brother! Without further delay, I cranked down on it starting in Genesis. I hardly even noticed the here we go againŽ looks I was getting from my crew, or how the people in the booth next to us were looking for an emergency exit. e fact that my audience was slipping back and forth to the bu et during most of it didnt even faze me. Im telling you I was locked in. Where were the news cameras when you need them? irty-“ ve or forty minutes past, whos counting? I had laid the foundation. e framework was “ rmly in place. e time had come to reveal the most sought after revelation of all times! I paused ever so brie” y for e ect, and a muchneeded breath, when in a ” ash, Heath jumped up, looked at his watch and said, But anyway.Žƒ rew down a tip and headed to the cash register with Tony hot on his heels. WHAT??? Believe it or not, God had indeed revealed great things to me that morning, but I have since learned its not so much what you blab, its what theyll grab. For example, you may sound awful smart giving your riveting explanation on the complexities of the Holy Trinity while saying grace, but you wont be invited back to many dinners. Tony and Heath might bear it, but its doubtful your unbelieving buddies will have the grout to stick it out. My great wisdom and church lingo will carry about as much weight with them as the guy who barks for the yak woman down at the carnival. My adviceƒ Be led by the Holy Spirit. If you just have to just blurt it out, go ahead. Lord knows they need to hear it. Sometimes I still cant help myself. JESUS LOVES YOU! YOU KNUCKLE HEADS!Ž But if at all possible, try to keep it simple. We can always speculate on whos the antichrist after they get saved! Ive also noticed through great trial and error people will always receive you a little better if they can tell you actually care about them. It is the demonstrated goodness of God that best erects your platform to speak. So ask God to give you a genuine love for those knuckleheads. e Good News rings loudest when its spoken in more than words. Jesus has such a wonderful way of dealing with us as individuals. I believe thats how we should deal with others, because sadly my latest revelation may only be a But anywayƒŽ to you.

Harvesting invasive lion“ sh no longer will require a “ shing license when using certain gear, and there is no recreational or commercial bag limit. e FWC is taking these actions to encourage more Floridians and visitors to harvest lion“ sh.  e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hopes that by increasing the opportunity for people to harvest invasive lion“ sh, we can limit the impact this nonnative invasive species has on Floridas marine “ sh and wildlife,Ž said Jessica McCawley, director of the FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management. We also want to express our gratitude to everyone, especially divers, who already go out on a regular basis to harvest lion“ sh.Ž e changes, enacted by an executive order, apply only through August 2013. ey are: € A recreational “ shing license is not required to target lion“ sh while using a pole spear, a Hawaiian sling (picture included in photo set), a handheld net or any spearing device that is speci“ cally designed and marketed exclusively for lion“ sh. € ere is no recreational or commercial harvest bag limit for lion“ sh. e changes do not allow spearing in areas where spear“ shing is prohibited and apply to state waters only, which is from shore to 9 miles in Gulf of Mexico waters and from shore to 3 miles in Atlantic waters. Lion“ sh are a nonnative invasive species that threatens Floridas saltwater “ sh and wildlife. ey prey on native “ sh and wildlife and can reduce native populations. Lion“ sh also compete for food with native predatory “ sh such as grouper and snapper. e FWC encourages people to remove lion“ sh in Florida waters to limit negative impacts to native “ sh FWC Increases Lion sh Harvest Opportunities, Asks Public to Help and wildlife. Lion“ sh have venomous spines, so the FWC urges careful handling. Unless a person is allergic to the venom, lion“ sh stings are rarely fatal. Anyone getting stung should immerse the wound in hot (not scalding) water or apply heat to the a ected area for 30 to 90 minutes to help break down the toxin. Also, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Spear“ shers should also take care not to damage the important reef habitat where lion“ sh often are found.
