Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 89, NO. 9 50 CENTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 By Terry WittSpecial to the Levy County Journal e Levy County Property Appraisers o ce announced at Tuesdays county commission meeting that it had mistakenly given property owners the wrong date for an important budget hearing this ursday, but the error had been corrected. Property Appraiser Osborne Barker said his o ce failed to see a mistake made by the company that printed the TRIM (Truth in Millage) notice listing the date as being Sept. 16 instead of Sept 6. e notices were mailed with the wrong date. Barker corrected the error by informing taxpayers through a daily newspaper advertisement and through postings on the doors of the courthouse as well as Post O ces in the county, and on the county web site, that the hearing is actually this ursday, Sept 6 at 6 p.m. in the courthouse. Even though a printing company made the mistake, Barker said the buck stops with him.  e responsibility falls back on me,Ž Barker said. I take full responsibility. We sent it to the printer. ey sent it back with the wrong date and we didnt notice it.Ž Commissioners will give “ nal approval at the hearing to a tentative millage for the coming 2012-13 budget year. e board earlier selected a millage rate of 8.5759 as the proposed rate, slightly higher than the current year. e current millage is 7.814 mills. When the incorrect hearing date “ rst came to his attention, Barker “ rst thought that the county could keep Sept. 16 as the date of the hearing until they realized there was a problem.  e 16th is a Sunday and we cant do that,Ž he said. e e orts his o ce made to publicize the correct date meet the requirements of state statute, according to Barker. e millage rate being proposed by the county commission is called the rollback rate. It would generate the same amount of property tax revenue as in the current budget. In other news, commissioners decided to sit tight and watch how a statewide lawsuit is progressing that is aimed at challenging the states claim that Levy and nearly all the other counties in Florida didnt pay all their Medicaid bills. Levy County is required to pay a portion of the Medicaid bills of some hospital patients and all nursing home patients residing in Levy County. All counties must meet the same requirement. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said the billing errors were made by the Agency for Healthcare Administration (ACHA), but the Florida Legislature is requiring counties to pay back the money. e counties are disputing how much money is owed.Elizabeth’s Peach Recipes See page 7BSee page 8B See page 8AFFA State Award WinnersRequests for Proposals Fla. Park Svc and Town of Bronson By Terry WittSpecial to the Levy County Journal Dreams do come true. Anyone who doubts that dreams can become a reality need only look at the new Bronson High School Eagle Football Stadium. e stadium, constructed behind the current Bronson Middle High School, was dedicated Friday night at the Eagles “ rst home football game. ose involved in building the stadium said the facility is a testament to the use of creativity and willpower to get the job done with limited resources. We had to use the resources that we could “ nd,Ž said Superintendent Bob Hastings. e $125,000 used to build the stadium was school board money, but donations of time, talent and materials by community members made the project possible. e Levy County School Board approved using a portion of $200,000 in reserve funds originally set aside for a water project involving BHS and the Town of Bronson to build the stadium. School Board member Cameron Asbell, a BHS graduate who represents the Bronson district, was also a key “ gure in starting the project and “ nding the funding to “ nance construction. e school board used $75,000 of reserve water funds to connect to the Bronsons municipal water system. e remaining $125,000 that was no longer needed for the project built the stadium. School board maintenance crews handled the work.New BHS Eagle Stadium – a Community Win Limited Resources and Donations of Time, Talent and Materials Build a Field of DreamsOn the horizon of the Republican Party there are two conservative women, Mia Love and Condoleeza Rice, who have overcome the odds dealt them at birth and catapulted to the top of the party. Love is a newcomer compared to Rice but both share the conservative philosophy of personal responsibility, “ scal discipline and individual rights that lead to great opportunity if utilized. eir speeches at the Republican Convention last week showcased that conservative ideology and we would like to present those speeches to you in print. Ludmya MiaŽ Bourdeau Love (born 1975) is the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and the 2012 Republican Party nominee for the United States House of Representatives in Utahs 4th congressional district Love was born Ludmya Bourdeau in Brooklyn, New York in 1975 and raised in Connecticut. Both of her parents immigrated from Haiti in 1973. After they moved to Connecticut, her parents brought her older siblings from Haiti. She graduated from the University of Hartford with a degree in Fine Arts. She worked at Sento Corp. and the Ecopass Corporation. She was also a ” ight attendant with Continental Airlines. Mia is now married to Jason Love and they have three children. In 2003 Love won a seat on the Saratoga Springs City Council, becoming the “ rst female Haitian-American elected o cial in Utah County, Utah; she took o ce in January 2004. After six years on the Council she was elected Mayor. Love worked with other city council members to cut expenses, reducing the citys shortfall during the economic downturn from $3.5 million to $779,000. Saratoga Springs now has the highest possible bond rating for a city of its size: AA+. Love states that she favors “ scal discipline, limited government, and personal responsibility.Ž According to Love, she asks herself three questions whenever she approaches an issue, Is it a ordable? Is it sustainable? Is it my job?Ž At her college orientation Loves father told her, Mia, your mother and I never took a handout. You will not be a burden to society. You will give back,Ž a philosophy she underscores on the trail and uses to sum up her conservative views. Love is pro-life and has been endorsed by the Susan B. Anthony List. She supports domestic energy exploration, local control of education, Second Amendment rights, and state control of public lands. Mia Love at the RNC: Let me tell you about the America I know. My parents immigrated to this county with ten dollars in their pocket, believing that the America they had heard about really did exist. When times got tough they didnt look to Washington, they looked within. So the America I grew up knowing was centered in self reliance and “ lled with possibilities of living the American dream.  e America I know is grounded in the determination found in patriots and pioneers, in small businesses with big ideas, in the farmers who work in the beauty of our landscape, in our heroic military and Olympic athletes. Its in every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says, I can do that.Ž at is the America I know!Accomplished Conservative Women Speak Out Strong at the RNC Mia Love, a rising star.

The Levy County Journal 3ASeptember 6, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923President Obamas version of America is a divided one „ often pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed us! We are not better o than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that. Mr. President I am here to tell you the American people are awake and we are not buying what you are selling in 2012.  e American Dream isnt just my story. It isnt just your story. It is our story. Its a story of human struggle, standing up and striving for more. Our story has been told for over 200 years with small steps and giant leaps; from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream; from the bravery of the greatest generation, to the innovators and entrepreneurs of today.  is is our story. is is our America. is is the America we know because we built it. With Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan we can restore the America we know and love. e world will know it, our children will tell it and our grandchildren will possess it for years to come! God bless America. is is our time. We are truly the best and last hope on earth.Ž To most people Condoleeza Rice needs no introduction and her accolades are many but here is a sketch of her varied and accomplished life. Condoleezza Rice, born on November 14, 1954, is an American political scientist and diplomat. She served as the 66th United States Secretary of State, and was the second person to hold that o ce in the administration of President George W. Bush. Rice was the “ rst female African-American secretary of state, as well as the second African American (after Colin Powell, also in the Bush administration), and the second woman (after Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton administration). Rice was President Bushs National Security Advisor during his “ rst term, making her the “ rst woman to serve in that position. Before joining the Bush administration, she was a professor of political science at Stanford University where she served as Provost from 1993 to 1999. Rice also served on the National Security Council as the Soviet and East European A airs Advisor to President George H.W. Bush during the dissolution of the Soviet Union and German reuni“ cation. Rice was born in Birmingham, Alabama, the only child of Angelena (ne Ray) Rice, a high school science, music, and oratory teacher, and John Wesley Rice, Jr., a high school guidance counselor and Presbyterian minister. Her name, Condoleezza, derives from the music-related term, con dolcezza, which in Italian means, with sweetness.Ž Rice has roots in the American South going back to the pre-Civil War era, and some of her ancestors worked as sharecroppers for a time after emancipation. Rice began to learn French, music, “ gure skating and ballet at the age of three. At the age of “ fteen, she began piano classes with the goal of becoming a concert pianist. While Rice ultimately did not become a professional pianist, she still practices often and plays with a chamber music group. She accompanied cellist Yo-Yo Ma playing Brahmss Violin Sonata in D Minor at Constitution Hall in April 2002 for the National Medal of Arts Awards and accompanied Aretha Franklin in duets in 2010. After attending the Franklin and Rice concert, Hu ngton Post blogger Laura Trice in her piece entitled, Condoleeza Rice: A Role Model for Overcoming Adversity, quoted Rice as saying:  e no victims, no excuses motto was extremely important because if one felt like a victim, one felt aggrieved or wronged, and the twin to aggrieved is entitlement. So, if Im being put upon and wronged, you or the world owes me.Ž Rice recalled of her parents and their peers:  ey refused to allow the limits and injustices of their time to limit our horizons.Ž Rices initial college major was piano, but after realizing she did not have the talent to play professionally, she began to consider an alternative major. She attended an international politics course taught by Josef Korbel, which sparked her interest in the Soviet Union and international relations. Rice later described Korbel (who was the father of Madeleine Albright) as a central “ gure in her life. In 1974, at age 19, Rice was inducted into the honor society Phi Beta Kappa, and was awarded a B.A., cum laude, in political science by the University of Denver. While at the University of Denver she was a member of Alpha Chi Omega, Gamma Delta chapter. She obtained a masters degree in political science from the University of Notre Dame in 1975. She “ rst worked in the State Department in 1977, during the Carter administration, as an intern in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural A airs. In 1981, at the age of 26, she received her Ph.D. in political science from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. Her dissertation centered on military policy and politics in what was then the communist state of Czechoslovakia. Rice was a Democrat until 1982, when she changed her political a liation to Republican, in part because she disagreed with the foreign policy of Democratic President Jimmy Carter, and because of the in” uence of her father, who was Republican. As she told the 2000 Republican National Convention, My father joined our party because the Democrats in the Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote. e Republicans did.Ž Rice would later go on to give a noteworthy speech at the 2000 Republican National Convention. Among other assertions, Rice stated that ... Americas armed forces are not a global police force. ey are not the worlds 911.Ž On a more personal note, the very athletically bent and gridiron-loving Rice, on August 20, 2012, was one of the “ rst two women to be admitted as members to Augusta National Golf Club (the other being South Carolina “ nancier Darla Moore). Last week, Rice delivered again with her speech highlighting the key ideologies of conservative thinking. Prepared Remarks by Condoleezza Rice at the RNC: Good evening. Distinguished delegates, fellow Republicans, fellow Americans... We gather here at a time of signi“ cance and challenge. is young century has been a di cult one. I will never forget the bright September day, standing at my desk in the White House, when my young assistant said that a plane had hit the World Trade Center … and then a second one … and a third, the Pentagon. And then the news of a fourth, driven into the ground by brave citizens that died so that many others would live. From that day on our sense of vulnerability and our understanding of security would be altered forever.  en in 2008 the global “ nancial and economic crisis stunned us and still reverberates as unemployment, economic uncertainty and failed policies cast a pall over the American recovery so desperately needed at home and abroad. And we have seen once again that the desire for freedom is universal … as men and women in the Middle East demand it. Yet, the promise of the Arab Spring is engulfed in uncertainty; internal strife and hostile neighbors are challenging the fragile democracy in Iraq; dictators in Iran and Syria butcher their own people and threaten the security of the region; China and Russia prevent a response; and all wonder,Where does America stand?Ž Indeed that is the question of the momentWhere does America stand?Ž When our friends and our foes, alike, do not know the answer to that question … clearly and unambiguously „ the world is a chaotic and dangerous place. e U.S. has, since the end of World War II, had an answer … we stand for free peoples and free markets, we are willing to support and defend them … we will sustain a balance of power that favors freedom. To be sure, the burdens of leadership have been heavy. I, like you, know the sacri“ ces that Americans have made … yes including the ultimate sacri“ ce of many of our bravest. Yet our armed forces remain the sure foundation of liberty. We are fortunate to have men and women who volunteer … they volunteer to defend us on the front lines of freedom. And we owe them our eternal gratitude. I know too that it has not always been easy … though it has been rewarding … to speak up for those who would otherwise be without a voice … the religious dissident in China; the democracy advocate in Venezuela; the political prisoner in Iran. It has been hard to muster the resources to support ” edgling democracies… or to help the worlds most desperate„ the AIDs orphan in Uganda, the refugee ” eeing Zimbabwe, the young woman who has been tra cked into the sex trade in Southeast Asia; the worlds poorest in Haiti. Yet this assistance … together with the compassionate works of private charities … people of conscience and people of faith„ has shown the soul of our country. And I know too that there is weariness … a sense that we have carried these burdens long enough. But if we are not inspired to lead again, one of two things will happen … no one will lead and that will foster chaos „or others who do not share our values will “ ll the vacuum. My fellow Americans, we do not have a choice. We cannot be reluctant to lead … and one cannot lead from behind. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan understand this reality „ that our leadership abroad and our well being at home are inextricably linked. ey know what needs to be done. Our friends and allies must be able to trust us. From Israel to Poland to the Philippines to Colombia and across the world „ they must know that we are reliable and consistent and determined. And our adversaries must have no reason to doubt our resolve „ because peace really does come through strength. Our military capability and technological advantage will be safe in Mitt Romney and Paul Ryans hands. We must work for an open global economy and pursue free and fair trade … to grow our exports and our in” uence abroad. In the last years, the United States has rati“ ed three trade agreements, all negotiated in the Bush Administration. If you are concerned about Chinas rise … consider this fact … China has signed 15 Free Trade Agreements and is negotiating 20 more. Sadly we are abandoning the playing “ eld of free trade … and it will come back to haunt us. We must not allow the chance to attain energy independence to slip from our grasp. We have a great gift of oil and gas reserves here in North America that must be and can be developed while protecting our environment. And we have the ingenuity in the private sector to tap alternative sources of energy. And most importantly, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will rebuild the foundation of American strength … our economy … stimulating private sector led growth and small business entrepreneurship. When the world looks at us today they see an American government that cannot live within its means. ey see a government that continues to borrow money, mortgaging the future of generations to come. e world knows that when a nation loses control of its “ nances, it eventually loses control of its destiny. at is not the America that has inspired others to follow our lead. After all, when the world looks to America, they look to us because we are the most successful political and economic experiment in human history. at is the true basis of American Exceptionalism. e essence of America … that which really unites us „ is not ethnicity, or nationality or religion … it is an idea „ and what an idea it is: at you can come from humble circumstances and do great things. at it doesnt matter where you came from but where you are going. Ours has never been a narrative of grievance and entitlement. We have not believed that I am doing poorly because you are doing well. We have not been envious of one another and jealous of each others success. Ours has been a belief in opportunity and a constant battle … long and hard „ to extend the bene“ ts of the American dream to all … without regard to circumstances of birth. But the American ideal is indeed endangered today. ere is no country, no not even a rising China, that can do more harm to us than we can do to ourselves if we fail to accomplish the tasks before us here at home. More than at any other time in history …the ability to mobilize the creativity and ambition of human beings forms the foundation of greatness. We have always done that better than any country in the world. People have come here from all over because they believed in our creed … of opportunity and limitless horizons. ey have come from the worlds most impoverished nations to make “ ve dollars not “ fty cents… and they have come from the worlds advanced societies … as engineers and scientists „ to help fuel the knowledge-based revolution in the Silicon Valley of California; the research triangle of North Carolina; in Austin, Texas; along Route 128 in Massachusetts … and across our country. We must continue to welcome the worlds most ambitious people to be a part of us. In that way we stay perpetually young and optimistic and determined. We need immigration laws that protect our borders; meet our economic needs; and yet show that we are a compassionate people. We have been successful too because Americans have known that ones status at birth was not a permanent station in life. You might not be able to control your circumstances but you can control your response to your circumstances. And your greatest ally in doing so was a quality education. Let me ask you, though, today, when I can look at your zip code and can tell whether you are going to get a good education … can I really say that it doesnt matter where you came from … it matters where you are going. e crisis in K-12 education is a grave threat to who we are. My mom was a teacher … I have the greatest respect for the profession … we need great teachers … not poor or mediocre ones. We need to have high standards for our students … self-esteem comes from achievement not from lax standards and false praise. And we need to give parents greater choice … particularly poor parents whose kids … most often minorities „ are trapped in failing neighborhood schools. is is the civil rights struggle of our day. If we do anything less, we will condemn generations to joblessness, hopelessness and dependence on the government dole. To do anything less is to endanger our global economic competitiveness. To do anything less is to tear apart the fabric of who we are and cement a turn toward grievance and entitlement. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will rebuild us at home and inspire us to lead abroad. ey will provide an answer to the question, Where does America stand?Ž  e challenge is real and these are tough times. But America has met and overcome di cult circumstances before. Whenever you “ nd yourself doubting us … just think of all the times that we have made the impossible seem inevitable in retrospect. Americas victorious revolutionary founding … against the greatest military power of the time; a Civil War … hundreds of thousands dead in a brutal con” ict … but emerging a stronger union; a second founding … as impatient patriots fought to overcome the birth defect of slavery and the scourge of segregation; a long struggle against communism … that ended with the death of the Soviet Union and the emergence of Europe, whole free and at peace; the will to make di cult decisions, heart-wrenching choices in the aftermath of 9/11 that secured us and prevented the follow-on attacks that seemed preordained at the time. And on a personal note… a little girl grows up in Jim Crow Birmingham … the most segregated big city in America her parents cant take her to a movie theater or a restaurant … but they make her believe that even though she cant have a hamburger at the Woolworths lunch counter … she can be President of the United States and she becomes the Secretary of State. Yes, America has a way of making the impossible seem inevitable in retrospect. But of course it has never been inevitable … it has taken leadership, courage and an unwavering faith in our values. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have the experience and the integrity and the vision to lead us … they know who we are, what we want to be and what we o er the world. at is why this is a moment … an election … of consequence. Because it just has to be … that the most compassionate and freest country on the face of the earth … will continue to be the most powerful! May God Bless You … and May God continue to bless this extraordinary, exceptional country … the United States of America.Ž Conservative Women continued from page 1A Mitchs Gold & Diamonds Condoleeza Riice.

The Levy County Journal4ASeptember 6, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Obama’s Dreams Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateAfter reading Barack Obamas book Dreams from My Father,Ž it became painfully clear that he has not been searching for the truth, because he assumed from an early age that he had already found the truth -and now it was just a question of “ lling in the details and deciding how to change things. Obama did not simply happen to encounter a lot of people on the far left fringe during his life. As he spells out in his book, he actively sought out such people. ere is no hint of the slightest curiosity on his part about other visions of the world that might be weighed against the vision he had seized upon. As Professor Richard Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School has pointed out, Obama made no e ort to take part in the marketplace of ideas with other faculty members when he was teaching a law course there. What would be the point, if he already knew the truth and knew that they were wrong? is would be a remarkable position to take, even for a learned scholar who had already spent decades canvassing a vast amount of information and views on many subjects. But Obama was already doctrinaire at a very early age -and ill-informed or misinformed on both history and economics. His statement in Dreams from My FatherŽ about how white men went to Africa to drag away the conquered in chainsŽ betrays his ignorance of African history. e era of the Atlantic slave trade and the era of European conquests across the continent of Africa were di erent eras. During the era of the Atlantic slave trade, most of Africa was ruled by Africans, who sold some of their slaves to white men. European conquests in Africa had to wait until Europeans found some way to survive lethal African diseases, to which they lacked resistance. Only after medical science learned to deal with these diseases could the era of European conquests spread across sub-Saharan Africa. But the Atlantic slave trade was over by then. ere was no reason why Barack Obama had to know this. But there was also no reason for him to be shooting o his mouth without knowing what he was talking about. Similarly with Obamas characterization of the Nile as the worlds greatest river.Ž e Nile is less than 10 percent longer than the Amazon, but the Amazon delivers more than 50 times as much water into the Atlantic as the Nile delivers into the Mediterranean. e Nile could not accommodate the largest ships, even back in Roman times, much less the aircraft carriers of today that can sail up the Hudson River and dock in midtown Manhattan. When Obama wrote that many people had been enslaved only because of the color of their skin,Ž he was repeating a common piece of gross misinformation. For thousands of years, people enslaved other people of the same race as themselves, whether in Europe, Asia, Africa or the Western Hemisphere. Europeans enslaved other Europeans for centuries before the “ rst African was brought in bondage to the Western Hemisphere. e very word slaveŽ is derived from the name of a European people once widely held in bondage, the Slavs. As for economics, Obama thought that Indonesians would be worse o after Europeans came in, used up their natural resources and then left them too poor to continue the modern way of life to which they had become accustomed, or to resume their previous way of life, after their previous skills had atrophied. is fear of European exploitationŽ prevailed widely in the ird World in the middle of the 20th century. But, by the late 20th century, the falseness of that view had been demonstrated so plainly and so often, in countries around the world, that even socialist and communist governments began opening their economies to foreign investments. is often led to rising economic growth rates that lifted millions of people out of poverty. Barack Obama is one of those people who are often wrong but never in doubt. When he burst upon the national political scene as a presidential candidate in 2008, even some conservatives were impressed by his con“ dence. But con“ dent ignorance is one of the most dangerous qualities in a leader of a nation. If he has the rhetorical skills to inspire the same con“ dence in himself by others, then you have the ingredients for national disaster. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMObama’s Interior Department Still Going Rogue OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate e Obama administrations loathsome cowboy, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, wont take no for an answer. Hes been smacked down repeatedly by federal courts for imposing a draconian, junk science-based moratorium on the oil and gas industry. Yet, the job-killing zealot and his boss just introduced another ruinous o shore drilling ban two weeks ago. e White House rationale for the renewed crackdown? Because we said so. omas Pyle of the D.C.-based Institute for Energy Research reports that the Salazar scheme reinstitutes a 30-year moratorium on o shore energy exploration that will keep our most promising resources locked away until long after President Obama begins plans for his presidential library.Ž Instead of working to enhance our energy independence and free up abundant natural resources, the Obama administration has worked tirelessly to close o access to nearly 86 billion barrels of oil on Americas Outer Continental Shelf alone. e latest plan involves the interior secretarys authority to auction oil and gas leases and to oversee oil and gas research and exploration on the OCS. Pyle explains that the 2012-17 plan leaves out the entire Atlantic and Paci“ c coasts and the vast majority of OCS areas o Alaska. It cuts in half the average number of lease sales per year, requires higher minimum bids and shorter lease periods, and dramatically reduces lease terms.Ž e o cial Obama for America slogan may be Forward,Ž but the Salazar-Obama anti-drilling regime leaves America behind. National Ocean Industries Association President Randall B. Luthi told the Oil and Gas Journal (an industry publication):  is deeply disappointing no new access plan does not re” ect the comprehensive, all of the above energy policy touted by the administration, nor does it keep pace with the energy policies of foreign nations that are expanding their o shore access to develop badly needed oil and gas.Ž No surprise. Salazar is an unrepentant glutton for punishment -of Americas energy producers. Hes had the unwavering support of President Obama ever since the aftermath of the BP oil spill in 2010, when the administration implemented a radical sixmonth freeze on Americas entire deepwater drilling industry. Republicans must forcefully counter the campaign fables being spun by Team Obama with the truth about these rogue overlords. When the presidents Chicago ” acks boast of their noble commitment to transparency, remember: e overbroad drilling ban was stu ed into a technical safety document in the middle of the night by Obamas unaccountable green extremists. When White House operatives tout their miraculous economics, remind them: e cost of the original ObamaSalazar edict is an estimated 19,000 jobs and $1.1 billion in lost wages. e new ban takes both coasts o the table and throws Alaska oil and gas sales into uncertain delay. When Democrats tout their adherence to sound science, dont forget: e administrations own expert panel disavowed Salazar and former eco-czar Carol Browners claims that they had secured a scienti“ c consensus for the drilling ban. In fact, Salazar and Browner completely perverted the experts consensus against the sweeping o shore drilling ban. When Vice President Joe Biden takes to the stump to tout the character of his (bosss) convictions,Ž make it known: Louisiana federal judge Martin Feldman rebuked the Obama Interior Department for its determined disregardŽ for the law. And the stench deepens. e House Natural Resources Committee released e-mails quoting a senior whistleblower who directly contradicted Salazars claim that doctored support for the ban was unintentional. Where is the Interior Department inspector general to look out for taxpayers best interests? Shes knee-deep in ethics problems herself. A federal panel that oversees government watchdogs took up a con” ict-of-interest complaint against Interior Department Acting Inspector General Mary Kendall. USA Today “ rst reported in May that Kendall had attended meetings where top Interior o cials discussed drafts of a peerreviewed report on deepwater drilling.Ž Later, she was enlisted to investigate how White House o cials cooked up the scienti“ cally manufactured report that resulted from those very meetings. Instead of haranguing GOP opponent Mitt Romney with questions about his o shore bank accounts, this search-anddestroy White House should start accounting for its o shore drilling obstructionism. Salazars reign has been a shady, secretive and rotten deal for America. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & CroniesŽ (Regnery 2010).

Have a voice through the Levy County Journal Ronald Reagan during his presidency once stated that the issues before the American people were no longer a matter of right and left but really of right and wrong. How true! e inescapable reality must be recognized that all decisions bearing on human behavior are based on some moral standard. e problem arises when we recognize that there is a plethora of such standards. is is particularly true when we consider the so-called social issues of human sexuality, speci“ cally, abortion, homosexuality, perversions, marriage, etc. Note that as Progressivism has progressed, our society has become much more liberated from the prevailing cultural and religious restraints. Do we not then see that the serious issues challenging us all today have in very fact become choices between good and evil? Some people would deny the very existence of evil, but Christ certainly knew otherwise. He taught His disciples that they should pray to the Heavenly Father to deliver us from evil.Ž Evil is de“ ned as that which is contrary to the moral code. For Jews and Christians this means that which is contrary to the clear biblical teaching. Both the Old and/ or New Testaments as applicable, that is, the Levitical laws on the one hand and the teachings of Christ and the apostles on the other. All of these in turn have formed the cultural, moral, legal and religious foundation of America and indeed of Western Civilization itself. Need it be pointed out from a very pragmatic viewpoint that this particular religio-cultural heritage has, over the 19th and 20th centuries, brought forth the most prosperous, powerful and freest nation on earth … our blessed U.S.A. Now we are witnessing the disintegration of this truly unique nation. Something has gone disastrously wrong. What could that thing possibly be? A serious look at our history reveals that America has, in fact, been going down for a long time … even decades. Have we violated our codes of conduct, our moral laws? e answer should be obvious in that the U.S. and Western Civilization have forsaken these traditions and values and are reaping the consequences as a result. Again, the Scriptures clearly and repeatably tell us that despite the laws of man to the contrary, the eternal, unchanging laws of God overrule those of mankind! Is it not obvious that any law that permits the premeditated destruction of innocent, helpless human life necessarily cheapens it? So no one should be at all surprised when the Independent Payment Advisory Board denies his own necessary and life-saving medical care. When human life is cheapened, everyones life becomes worth-less. I will not attempt to tell anyone how to vote this November. God Himself gives us the power of choice. But we are well advised to remind ourselves that we, each and all, will most certainly reap that which we have sown. Regardless of which persons we put into government this fall, we shall deserve the results thereof. e choice before us now is truly Life or Death. So which will we choose? Heavenly Father, we ask You to guide our hearts and minds as we choose those who will lead us, and in turn cause our leaders to seek Your face and guidance in every decision, so that we may all return wholly unto ee and be most pleasing in y sight, through Christ our Lord, in whose name we pray. Amen. (1 Timothy 1-4; Daniel 4: 17.) Hank C. Richstine, Old Town, FloridaRight or Left – or – Right or Wrong? A Letter to the Editor

We have become accustomed to turning to our trusted device of choice and getting the info we need in moments. But even the world of technology has its hiccups. We had recently written about home users needing to be sure to update Java to increase your security on your computer. Java 7 was released earlier this year, but we recently learned hackers had found holes in the software, through which they could infect computers. To close the holes, a new Java Update was released last week, Java 7 update 7. Unfortunately, this update has not repaired all the gaps in the program, and hackers are still “ nding ways to infect users computers with their malicious software. Since the patch was released hackers are attempting to increase their span of infection by sending out fake emails about Microsofts Services Agreement changes (Microsoft announced it is making changes to its Services Agreement that will take e ect Oct. 19 and these email messages are actually edited copies of legitimate noti“ cations from Microsoft). Hackers are telling computer users to visit fake websites that will target and infect computers that have the Java 7 or Java 7 version 7 updates. In these emails are links that have been replaced with links to the compromised sites that are lying in wait to install malicious software onto your computer. One rule of thumb is if you get any form of contact pretending to be from Microsoft, check to be sure it is legitimate by hovering your curser over the link in the email. If it does not have a Microsoft domain address, then odds are it is not legit. If you receive one of these noti“ cations and you are not sure if it is from Microsoft, delete the email or visit the Microsoft website to see if the information matches. In the meantime look to see if you have Java 7, or the Java 7 Update 7 installed on your computer. If you have it, uninstall it and download and install the Java 6 to ensure you will not be a ected with this security issue. If you do not have the previous version of Java, you can go to the Java site and download and install Java 6 (http://www. java.com/en/download/manual_v6.jsp). If you are a Mac user running either Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) you are safe, you most likely have Java version 6. Users running Lion (10.7) and Mountain Lion (10.8) who get their Java from Apple, should also be running Java 6. ose that opted to get Java from Oracle will be running Java 7 which you will need to change. Oracle has instructions on how to return to Apples Java 6. If you would like assistance making sure that your computer will not be a ected by the Java 7 or Java 7Update 7 security issues you can also call your trusted local computer repair shop.

I was just trying to do what the community wanted … to have a football stadium built at their high school,Ž said Hastings, a former BHS teacher, a football and baseball coach for 4 years at the school, and the BHS principal for 4 years. Progress Energy Florida made a major contribution. After crews “ nished installing concrete power poles along U.S. 27A not far from the new stadium, they o ered the use of their power line crews and equipment to transport the concrete poles and lighting from the old BHS Eagle Stadium to the new facility. Bronson businessman Jimmy Jerrels used his road grader and roller to build a practice “ eld near the new Eagle Stadium. Bronson cattleman Mickey Beauchamp, also the Booster Club president, planted grass donated by omas Cattle Companys Brad Etheridge on the practice “ eld. BHS Principal John Lott, a BHS graduate and a former Williston High School Principal, said WHS donated the concrete seating from the former high school football stadium for home bleacher seating at the new stadium. School board maintenance crews built the walls for the home side bleachers and installed the seating. Lott said WHS agreed to the donation while he was principal at the school. He said the donation bene“ ted WHS by freeing space for parking and possibly a bullpen for the WHS baseball team. Lott said it was a community e ort that built the stadium, but like Hastings and Beauchamp, he credited the hard work of Ted Alexanders school board maintenance crews with building the stadium from the ground up. About half of them went to school at Bronson and that probably helped,Ž Lott said with a grin. Construction of the stadium was started about a year ago, according to Beauchamp. e commitment was made to “ nish the stadium in time for the 2012 football season. e stadium was ready for Bronsons “ rst home game against St. Johns Lutheran Friday night. Ty Barber scored the “ rst touchdown in the stadium when he intercepted a pass and ran more than 40 yards for the score. Beauchamp said the stadium is a work in progress. e football “ eld was designed with enough room to build a track around it. e track has yet to be constructed, but he said the track will be built. He showered praise on the school board maintenance crews who built the stadium, but he said more improvements are planned.  eyve done a great job and its going to get better,Ž Beauchamp said. I didnt have anything to do with it, but Im proud of it and I know the team is proud of it.ŽBudget Hearing Date Mistake continued from page 1ALevy County originally was told it would have to repay $1.3 million to the state, but the county was able to take advantage of a discount and settled for just under $597,000. e state said the county could repay the money from state revenue sharing. e 57 Florida counties and the Florida Association of Counties that “ led the lawsuit are disputing the states numbers and have challenged the states claim for back Medicaid payments on several legal grounds. Levy County is hoping to reduce the amount it must repay. Meanwhile, it plans to watch the legal wrangling until the end of the year. In an unrelated matter, commissioners appointed an emergency committee of County Coordinator Freddie Moody, Public Safety Director David Knowles and County Attorney Anne Bast Brown to “ nd a vendor that can switch the county to a VHF paging system for emergency services communications to meet a federal requirement. e Federal Communications Commission is requiring the county to change to narrow bandingŽ for its radio and pager systems. e county must cease using its 800 megahertz system by the “ rst of the year or face a “ ne of $16,000 per day. Knowles said the county cant fully meet the requirements by the “ rst of the year, but it can comply with the core requirements to avoid the $16,000 a day “ ne the FCC is threatening to impose if narrow banding is not implemented. e county currently has some communications problems that would be corrected with narrow banding. It has a failing pager system that has left a so-called black holeŽ in the Williston area. Williston Fire and Rescue Chief Lamar Stegall said the city has been forced to use its own VHS and dispatcher system to make its pagers work during emergencies. County o cials have erected a new tower at Wolf Sink near the corner of County Road 321 and 326 to correct paging problems in that area of the county, but Williston was forced to “ nd its own solutions. Switching to narrow banding will cure the pager problems and meet federal requirements, but the cost to Levy County will be $900,000. Narrow banding resulted from the massive workload placed on certain radio frequencies by not only emergency services but cell phones and other wireless devices. Concerning some monetary news, Leeann Klinger of Pioneer Credit Recovery presented a super-large check for $159,384.88 to Clerk of Circuit Court Danny Shipp. e check represented the amount of money the “ rm collected from county residents who hadnt paid tra c tickets and court “ nes. Pioneer Credit Recovery adds 40 percent to the delinquent fees and “ nes as its collection fee. e dollar amount on the super-sized check doesnt show how much money Levy County will receive. Shipp said the money is divided among the various agencies that were due the money. He said all the money Levy County receives will be sent to the state, which administers much of the clerks budget. Tallahassee o cials administer clerk of court budgets throughout the state. County commissioners, in a “ nal matter, voted to give the Levy County Fair one of its election precinct buildings being decommissioned, but it wants to “ nd out if there are other community organizations that may want the second building. Levy County Fair o cials had requested both buildings. e decommissioned buildings are at Raleigh and Judson. e elections o ce has consolidated certain precincts, resulting in the decommissioning of the buildings. By Renee Proefke Where do germs lurk, and can you really avoid them? Here are a few of their favorite hiding spots, as well as ways you can protect yourself against them. 1. Ketchup tastes great on fries, but hold the germs. ink about it„when was the last time you saw someone at a restaurant clean a ketchup bottle? According to public health researcher Dr. Kelly Reynolds, most people don't wash their hands before eating. So it stands to reason that any time you touch something that many others have touched and isn't cleaned regularly (if at all), your hands pick up a batch of strange germs. Keep It Clean: Reynolds says napkins won't help. ey're too porous, and microorganisms can go right through them. Instead, squirt hand sanitizer on the outside of the ketchup bottle, or use a disinfectant wipe before you grab it. You can also use hand sanitizer or„ even better„wash your hands before and after eating. 2. Your purse could be making you sick. Never, ever place your purse on the bathroom ” oor! According to microbiologist Chuck Gerba, based on his research on where organisms that make us sick lurk, thousands of bacteria gather on the outside of a woman's purse„especially on its bottom. One woman in his research group had 6.7 million individual bacteria on the surface of her handbag! Keep It Clean: Hang your purse on the stall itself, and once a week clean both the inside and outside of your purse with a disinfectant wipe or spray. ere are also special drycleaning services to help you clean your handbags and purses. Researchers recommend you send them for cleaning every six months. 3. Talk about germs. Whether you use an o ce, home or mobile phone, researchers from the University of Arizona found that telephones actually can be more contaminated than toilet seats. Cell phone handsets have been found to be home to more than 18 times the number of harmful germs present on the handle of your toilet. Keep It Clean: For items such as cell phones, it might be safer to use a disinfecting wipe (turn the phone o before cleaning), and be sure to follow any speci“ c safety instructions. Did You Know? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the H1N1 ” u virus, other viruses, and staphylococcus bacteria and e-coli can remain on commonly used items for eight hours or more. is article is provided for information only.

Mace, who is leaving WES for another job, was honored by the sta at a recent faculty meeting. She has been at WES since 2001, when she interned with 5th grade teacher Kathy Brewington. Mace was hired by Levy County ESE Director, Dr. Rosalind A. Hall, to work for SEDNET, the multiagency network for students with emotional/ behavioral disabilities. She was assigned to District 3B, which includes Levy, Alachua, Bradford, Baker, Union and Gilchrist. Hopefully, my o ce will be in the ESE building in Bronson,Ž said Mace, and Ill be able to travel from that location.Ž [All the o ces of the School Board of Levy County are located in Bronson.] What a special occasion [the reception] for a special lady. I know you will be missed immensely!Ž said Hall about Mace. Knowing shed be traveling, the hospitality committee chairmen, Laurie Helgerud and Erin Owens, ordered Mace a monogrammed tote bag. Fourth grade teacher Joelene Vining baked and decorated two cakes for the celebration; these were served with punch to the honoree and her colleagues. SEDNET, created by an act of state legislation in 1984, delineates the following as the goals of the organization: € Support and represent the needs of students in each school district in joint planning with “ scal agents of childrens mental health funds, including the expansion of school-based mental health services, transition services, and integrated education and treatment programs. € Improve coordination of services for children with or at-risk of emotional/behavioral disabilities and their families by assisting multi-agency collaborative initiatives to identify critical issues and barriers of mutual concern and develop local response systems that increase home and school connections and family engagement. € Increase parent and youth involvement and development with local systems of care. € Assist school districts in the development and implementation of policies, procedures, and practices concerning the use of restraint and seclusion, including the provision of technical assistance to promote the reduction of any unnecessary use of seclusion and restraint. € Facilitate student and family access to e ective services and programs for students with and at-risk of emotional/behavioral disabilities that include necessary educational, residential, and mental health treatment services, enabling these students to learn appropriate behaviors, reduce dependency, and fully participate in all aspects of school and community living. I imagine Ill be pretty busy!Ž declared Mace.

Crazy Quilts are made with odd shapes of fabric and decorative stitches and embroidery work. Often, rick rack and ribbon were used. Traditionally, spiders, spider webs or dragon ies are embroidered on the quilt. The quilts were made with velvets, silks, brocades or cotton.

It seemed as though everything was a little higher compared to last week. As a whole believe that we had the best group of yearlings we've had all year. Rockin H Ranch of Williston topped the calf market with a high of $2.875 bought by Terry Bomhak. Henry VanZant of Yulee topped the replacement cow market with a high of $1.20. Suwannee Dairy of McAlpin topped the slaughter cow market with a high of $.945 bought by Central Beef. Elwood Clyatt of Chie” and topped the Replacement bull market with a high of $1.18 and Sunshine Cattle of Callahan topped the slaughter bull market with a high of $1.065 bought by Dairymen's Marketing Service. Our prayers are out to those in the path of Isaac. May the rain hold o long enough in North Florida so everyone can get their hay cut and bailed. We sure are glad to see the rain come and the grass growing. Please check out our website at www. north” oridalivestock.com. If you see anything that you would like us to put on our webpage feel free to contact us with your suggestions. anks to all the sellers and buyers for yet another good week. See you next Wednesday. CASEY How to read the "New" Market Report: Since the Market News Service was terminated on June 30, 2012, and there are no Market Reporters currently covering our market, we will be using the Market Report System on our auction sale program. is is NOT a "weighted'. program, simply highs and lows of weight ranges of animals with an average. e "average price" given is a valuable number and worth reporting. It will give you the average price on that weight range of animals. It throws out the highs and lows and gives you a good idea of what animals are worth at that weight. Our system is tweaked already to throw out any extreme lows on odd cattle or defective cattle, so you are getting fair representation of cattle in that weight range. It's not perfect, but it does report ALL cattle sold on the sale date, and gives a good idea of what they're worth. If you have any questions or need further information. give us a call, we'll be glad to help! Todd

My wife, being ever so gracious, quickly bowed out and suggested I take the two kids. I said, Come on and go with us honey?Ž She said, No, really. You go.Ž I now suspect she mustve been hearing from God. After a quick stop for ear plugs, we were on our way. e kids were so excited. I could tell we were in for a treat as soon as we arrived. e heavy smell of burning rubber charged our nostrils and the distant clamor of an anxious crowd spilled over from the silver bleachers lining the sweltering quarter mile straightaway. e colorful logo laden racing rigs were sprawled out before us in all their full regalia. I hurriedly drug the kids past the souvenir stands while simultaneously beating them o my wallet like an old pro. Im not normally paranoid, but as we were climbing the stands Im almost positive I noticed people staring at my kids. en theyd glare at me like I was a ” aming idiot! It made me mad. But hey, I just “ gured they were delirious from being packed in there like sardines in that 95 degree heat. What do they know with their big goofy ear phones on anyway? I wasnt going to let it a ect me. If they dont care enough to bring their small children its not my problem. (Not one of them did, now that I think about it.) Anyway, we were just in time. ey were announcing the “ rst race of the top fuel funny car “ nals! Now Im not normally a whimp, but when those “ rst two cars roared past us at 314 mph with the super subsonic rumble of a shuttle launch, I fear I may have whimpered a little. After I got my breath back I began to feel heavy, like I might fall over. en I realized it was because both kids were hanging from me like treed possums. Worse, their ear plugs had rattled out and the next two cars were already on the starting line! To be honest, from then on, I never knew who raced or who won, and didnt care. e next few minutes were purely a lesson in survival. I “ nally screamed, Lets get out of here.Ž Both kids just looked at me all wide eyed. en they said, WHAT?Ž At least thats what I think they said. Im pretty sure I heard somebody call me a ” aming idiot. Once we put a little distance between us and the track we began walking around, checking out the di erent racing teams. at part was actually very interesting. You could walk right up to one of the cars and watch as the crews worked on them. It was great until one of those yahoos decided to crank up one of those two zillion horse power jet engines not “ ve feet from us. e kids took o Ive never seen them run so fast in all my life. When I looked back they were about to catch me! Now Im not normally a betting man, but Id say the odds of this Johnny Bravo ever going back to that track are slim to none. Yet those same races made a completely di erent impression on my friend Barrys teenage son Christopher. It stirred his desire for working on cars. In fact, he decided that he wanted to join one of those racing teams when he graduated. Instead of running him down to a shrink like I would have, Barry and his wife actually encouraged him. Christopher talked to some of those racing fellows and found out how to pursue the career. For three years he worked hard and followed their every suggestion. en last month he beat all the odds, and at just twenty one years old he signed on with one of the top N.H.R.A. racing teams ever; John Force Racing. Wow! Isnt it awesome how we are each made so unique? Some people dig chasing tornados or leaping from perfectly good airplanes. Pray for em. I have a friend who told me with a gleam in her eye her secret desire is to learn to sew. We all have such di erent passions. Some of you may have given up on your dreams? Maybe its time for you to dust them o again? What if we could live determined to steer clear of the fears and excuses that throw us o track, or cause us to slam on the brakes? (Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. Psalms 37:4-5 KJV) But anywayLets get those engines started! Weve run under cautionŽ too long. Gods ready when you are. He can take you to the checkered ” ag, but as my Pastor always says, You cant steer a parked car.Ž -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

When the adjustments in these “ lings are included with previously approved base rates and the gross receipts tax, the average customer bill would re” ect an average decrease of $7.44 per month. e largest decrease is in the fuel charge, which recovers the actual cost of fuel, mainly natural gas and coal, used to generate electricity. e continued low commodity price of natural gas and the settlement refund have reduced this charge. e Aug. 31 “ ling also included estimates for an increase in the cost of purchased power. Utilities routinely purchase power to ensure customers energy needs are met in the most cost-e ective manner possible. e environmental compliance charge, “ led Aug. 30, recovers the costs of environmental investments. Environmental improvements operating since May 2010 at the utilitys two largest coal-“ red units, Crystal River 4 and 5, now allow Progress Energy Florida to use less expensive coal while reducing average annual emissions at the units by 80 percent; nitrogen oxides by approximately 93 percent and sulfur dioxide by approximately 97 percent. e PSC hearings on the fuel, capacity, environmental and energy-e ciency charges will take place Nov. 5-7. e PSC will “ nalize Progress Energys nuclear charge Nov. 20. At that time, the total 2013 customer bill will be determined.
