Otter Creek has experienced water quality problems for years because the city was built near swamp land and the water is full of iron and di cult to treat. e town has been ordered by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to bring its water up to drinking water standards. Joe Mittauer of Mittauer and Associates, the engineering rm representing Bronson, said Otter Creek has attempted to treat organic materials in the water, known as Trihalomethanes, using chlorine but the process creates carcinogens. Otter Creek has a second option, to use a process known as reverse osmosis to remove the harmful organics in the water, but its rst choice is to sign a joint agreement with Bronson to buy bulk water from the town. Councilman Berlon Weeks and Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford along with Florida Rural Water Association President Bill Secoy were appointed to a committee that will examine whether selling bulk water to Otter Creek is a good idea. Under the plan proposed by Mittauer, Bronson would bill Otter Creek at 70 percent of the cost it sells water to its own citizens. Levy Countys smallest incorporated city on average uses 12,000 gallons per day. Mittauers proposal sets the maximum daily use at 108,000 gallons per day. Bronson is permitted to pump 800,000 gallons per day but uses only a fraction of that amount. Weeks was skeptical of the plan, in part because he said the town has had con icts with Otter Creek in the past when the two cities tried to work together, but he also questioned giving Otter Creek full control of the pipeline and not having any guidelines that would prevent Otter Creek from reselling the water. I think the water should be ours until it reaches Otter Creek, he said. Councilman Jason Kennedy agreed that he wasnt comfortable with the concept of Otter Creek owning and operating the 12-mile pipeline that would be connected to Bronsons water plant. I would be much more comfortable if we could own and operate the infrastructure, he said. Weeks said Bronson has the second highest water quality in the state and Otter Creek has some of the worst and he doesnt want the town to enter into an agreement that could eventually exhaust Bronsons water supplies. Otter Creek would apply for a state grant/loan to build the $2 million pipeline and would have $500,000 hookup costs within the city. e grant would pay 75 percent of the cost of building the pipeline. Should the pipeline proposal fall through, Otter Creeks second option would be to apply for a Community Development Block Grant from the state to pay for a reverse osmosis plant to remove the troublesome iron and carcinogens from its water.Bingo in Bronson to Fund Food Charity e founder of a Levy County organization that provides free farm produce to the hungry was granted approval Monday night by the Bronson Town Council to run a family bingo game that will help fund the organizations charitable operations. Bill Brown of Childrens Table, Inc. had to convince council members that approving bingo in a town that has an ordinance banning any type of gambling was necessary for the survival of the non-pro t group that on average feeds 4,520 people per month. Its critical to what we are doing, unless you can gure out some other way we can make money, Brown said. Councilman Aaron Edmondson won support for his motion to approve the bingo operation from Mayor Beatrice Roberts and Councilman Franklin Shuler. Edmondson noted the bingo operation could go forward but would have to comply with state laws governing bingo games run by charitable organizations. Council members Berlon Weeks and Jason Kennedy voted against the measure, noting the town had rejected requests by two Internet caf companies to locate in Bronson. Weeks saw no di erence between the Internet cafs and bingo. Kennedy said he was worried that the bingo games could grow into something unexpected. He said that was the reason the town council took action to ban gambling in the town. Were trying to uphold a nicer neighborhood standard here in Bronson, Kennedy said. Council members sit behind their new town council dais using iPods to save on paper with the agenda and backup items downloaded to them. The council chamber no w has carpeting, cushioned chairs for visitors and a projection screen feature. The renovation of the chambers is so new that sta hasnt had time to add curtains.9/11 Memorialized Bronson Speedway Races this Sat. Sept. 15 Photo by Suzette Cook/racebronson.comCommission hikes rates anyway School board of Levy County Needs an Attorney By Terry Witt Special to the Levy County JournalLevy County Commissioners raised special assessment rates for ambulance and re services to higher levels Tuesday, prompting many residents to complain that county taxation was becoming a burden. Commissioners voted 4-1 to raise the re assessment for residential customers from $40 to $90 and the Emergency Medical Services assessment for residences from $76 to $119. e board was unanimous on the EMS assessment, but one commissioner, Mike Joyner, was opposed to the higher re assessment and voted no, saying the assessment was much higher than he would support. Commission Chairman Danny Stevens and Commissioners Marsha Drew, Ryan Bell and Chad Johnson supported the higher re assessment. Johnson, Drew and Bell said it was a balancing act to gure out how to support re services at an adequate level without placing such a heavy burden on the property tax millage. One way or another, they said the bills had to be paid, but they felt more people would be paying the bills if a heavier burden were placed on assessments, which are paid by all property owners. In the case of property taxes, Johnson said 57 percent of the improved parcel property owners pay $200 in taxes or less. It is a struggle with how much do you fund and how much do you not fund, he said. e assessment for EMS was raised to the maximum level, but even that rate will not pay for the entire EMS budget. Some of the money will come from the property taxes. Paramedics and EMTs make relatively low wages in Levy County. Commercial and industrial rates for EMS and re services were also raised. Some complained that the rates were a problem for small businesses. e county sent out tax notices with the maximum rate listed for re and EMS, knowing that commissioners could lower the rate during the hearing. Commissioners adopted a re rate lower than the maximum. Businessman John Masselli, owner of Breezy Acres Campground between Chie and and Bronson on U.S. 27A, was in sticker shock when he saw his proposed bill at the maximum rate. He said the re assessment would have risen from $595 to a proposed rate of $3,396 for next year. Youre just going to put us out of business, Masselli said. e re rate adopted by commissioners was lower than what Masselli saw on his tax bill, but he said after the meeting, higher taxes can impact his business by forcing him to raise his rates. He said his customers are mostly retirees and snowbirds who may go to other campgrounds if he is forced to pass on the higher tax rates to them in the form of increased rent. Bail bondsman David Stone said property taxation in Levy County has grown to the point that taxpayers are more like tenants than property owners. e American dream has become the American burden, he said. Like others, Stone had heard the county was starting a countywide re department. He said such a move would be costly in the future and in 10 years the county would probably be broke. Stop coming back to the property owners for another lick, he said to the applause of the audience. County Public Safety Director David Knowles said after the meeting there were no plans to form a countywide paid re department. He said the Levy County Fire Department has absorbed volunteer re departments that could no longer function on their own like Fowlers Blu and Rosewood, but he said the countys position is that other volunteer departments will continue to function as they have in the past unless they come to the county and ask for assistance.Commission Hikes Assessments Despite CriticismCommissioner Ryan Bell (second from left) discusses his views on the re assessment.

During the next few days, an administrative Lieutenant interviewed additional witnesses who had been incarcerated during that time period. Once these interviews were conducted, the information was forwarded to Sheri Hatcher who placed o cer, Rionodo Brown, 39, from Cross City, on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Sheri Hatcher then contacted the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and requested that they conduct an independent investigation into the incident to allow complete transparency. e Sheri s O ces internal investigation into policy and procedure violations was suspended until FDLEs criminal investigation and prosecution is completed and those ndings forwarded to Sheri Hatcher. On the afternoon of September 6, 2012, Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement met with Sheri Hatcher and Brown was summoned to the Sheri s O ce. Upon arrival, Browns employment with the Dixie County Sheri s O ce was terminated by Sheri Hatcher and he was turned over to the FDLE agents who arrested him in regard to the allegations made against him. Brown who was employed with the Dixie County Sheri s O ce as a Corrections O cer had previously served with the Florida Department of Corrections as a Correctional O cer. Brown was charged with Sexual Battery by a Law Enforcement O cer and Attempted Sexual Battery by a Law Enforcement O cer. Under Florida law, there does not need to be any force or coercion due to the mere authority and control that a Law Enforcement O cer or Correctional O cer might have over the possible victim. Immediately following Browns arrest he was transported to a neighboring jail facility in order to avoid contact with former fellow employees and inmates who had been under his supervision. On Friday morning, September 7, 1012, Brown was received his First Appearance Hearing before Judge Fred Koberlein who set Browns bond at $400,000.00. Information provided by the Dixie County Sheri s O ceCorrections O cer Arrested for Sexual Battery Suwannee County Woman Still Missing e family of Kamrie Cherai Mitchell, 24, of Wellborn in Suwannee County reported that she was missing to authorities.

A Christmas Story Auditions Start Sept. 17 in Ocala God's AccuracyGod's accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs.. . . For example: -the eggs of the potato bug hatch in 7 days; -those of the canary in 14 days; -those of the barnyard hen in 21 days; e eggs of ducks and geese hatch in 28 days; -those of the mallard in 35 days; e eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days. (Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!) God's wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. e four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made. God planned that this animal would have a huge body, too large to live on two legs. For this reason He gave it four fulcrums so that it can rise from the ground easily. e horse rises from the ground on its two front legs rst. A cow rises from the ground with its two hind legs rst. How wise the Lord is in all His works of creation! God's wisdom is revealed in His arrangement of sections and segments, as well as in the number of grains. -Each watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind. -Each orange has an even number of segments. -Each ear of corn has an even number of rows. -Each stalk of wheat has an even number of grains. -Every bunch of bananas has on its lowest row an even number of bananas, and each row decreases by one, so that one row has an even number and the next row an odd number. All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks, and the Lord speci ed thirty fold, sixty fold, and a hundred fold all even numbers. e waves of the sea roll in on shore twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather. God has caused the owers to blossom at certain speci ed times during the day. Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had a conservatory containing the right kind of soil, moisture and temperature, he could tell the time of day or night by the owers that were open and those that were closed! "Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil it has no point." Bronson Proposal continued from page 1A Bronson has such high quality water that the preferred option would be purchasing water from its neighbor. In other business, Secoy presented council members with an explanation of how the town should be charging its developers for the capacity they use in the water and sewer plants. Secoy said the Florida Rural Water Association encourages the towns it represents to require developers and the residents within those developments to pay for the amount of capacity they use in the sewer and water plants; otherwise the town could be faced with big expenses in the future when it has to replace those facilities. Secor said Bronson should be charging people in those developments $34.52 per month for water and $37.35 per month for sewer. He said Bronsons rates are below that level. e towns rates fall within the a ordability range, which takes into consideration income levels. No action was taken on Secors presentation. e town has decided to advertise for bids on paving the parking lots of the Bronson Public Library. Dunford said the town consulted with Jimmies Hauling & Grading, Inc., a local company owned by Jimmie Jerrels, on how to go about paving the parking lot. Jerrels submitted a bid memo listing what he thought the project was worth, but the town would like to get at least three bids before it makes a decision. Council members did not accept a proposal by Waste Pro to serve the town for another ve years. e town is advertising for bids from waste haulers. Town Attorney Stephen Warm said the town needed to go forward with its e ort to solicit bids from other haulers or it would get into trouble. Waste Pro has served the city since 2005. Division Manager Kenny Rees said the company is willing to provide 96 gallon containers on wheels to every commercial and residential customer at no additional cost. Waste Pro would absorb the $52 cost of each container. Work began September 10 on a project which will improve the ability for students to walk to Chie and Elementary and Middle schools from their homes. e sidewalk will be built along eight streets on both sides of Main Street (US 19/98) and crosswalks will be added as part of the federally funded Safe Routes to School program. e work is tentatively scheduled to begin on Southwest Fifth Street between Eddie Buie Park and Orange Street. Other streets that will have sidewalk added are: NW 11th Ave. from NW 12th Drive to North Main St. NW 4th Dr. between NW 4th and 11th avenues. NE 4th Ave. from Main Street to NE 4th St. NE 4th St. from N. Young Blvd. (Alt. 27) and East Park Ave. NEt 2nd St. from North Young Boulevard to NE 4th Ave. SE 2nd St. from NE 4th Ave. to East Park Ave. SW 2nd Ave. just east of Orange St. SW 2nd St. from West Park Ave. to SW 2nd Ave. Daytime lane closures will occur between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. but will not be allowed between 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 2:45-3:45 p.m. to minimize inconvenience to those traveling to and from school. e project cost is $339,498 which includes the design work. Safe Routes to School programs are e orts by parents, schools, community leaders and local, state and federal agencies to examine conditions around kindergarten through eighth grade schools and work to improve safety and reduce tra c and air pollution in the vicinity of schools. ese programs are intended to make bicycling and walking to school safer and more appealing.

The Levy County Journal4ASeptember 13, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 God and Jerusalem Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateWho would have thought that God and Jerusalem would become controversial issues at this years Democratic National Convention? Previous Democratic Party platforms had mentioned God and referred to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. After both were initially missing from this years platform, someone apparently realized that this was likely to raise questions about Democrats that they could ill a ord to have raised in an election year. So the convention faced a vote on whether to restore God and Jerusalem to their partys platform. Rather than risk a roll-call vote from the delegates, the chair called for a voice vote. e voice vote sounded too close to call, but the chair called it anyway, ruling that those wanting God and Jerusalem restored had the necessary twothirds vote. is added an element of farce to the proceedings, but politicians are usually hardened against any sense of shame. More was involved than a passing tempest in a teapot. Democrats were already politically vulnerable on the issue of not respecting religious freedom, because of the Obama administrations heavy-handed forcing of Catholic institutions to nance contraception, against their own religious principles. Jerusalem raised very di erent questions. In the real world, there is no question that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. at is where their national government is located. But in the murky world of international politics -and especially in the never-never land of the mythical Middle East peace process -the Palestinians demand that Jerusalem be their capital has made liberals in general, and the Obama administration in particular, skittish about recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital. Nothing that would call attention to Obamas policies toward Israel is likely to quiet the fears of Jewish voters in America, especially as regards the threat of a nuclear Iran, whose leaders have openly and repeatedly proclaimed their desire to wipe Israel o the face of the earth. From the beginning, Barack Obama has tried to downplay the threat of a nuclear Iran. At one time he said dismissively that Iran was just a small country. In fact, Iran is physically larger than Japan, and its current population is slightly larger than what the population of Japan was when the Japanese dealt a devastating blow to the United States with its attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. A nuclear Iran can do a lot more damage to Israel than the Japanese did to the United States. Moreover, it is well on its way to being able to produce more than the two bombs that were enough to force Japan to surrender in 1945. Israel is in a desperate situation -and there is no way that Barack Obama does not know that. Of all the authors whose books about Barack Obama have ooded the market, Dinesh DSouza has shown the best grasp of Obamas strange ideological view of the world. Based on that understanding, DSouza said two years ago: I predict that even as Iran develops the full capacity to build nuclear weapons, Obama will do little or nothing to stop it. As for the possibility that Israel will launch airstrikes to disable the Iranian nuclear facilities, DSouza said, I predict the Obama administration will do its best to prevent Israel from taking any such action. at is what Obama is doing to this very moment. He has even taken the unconscionable step of revealing to the world Israels secret arrangements with Azerbaijan to provide a refueling place for its planes going to or returning from an airstrike on Iran. Dinesh DSouza has no crystal ball. But you dont need a crystal ball to predict Barack Obamas hostile attitude toward Israel, despite all of Obamas lofty words saying the opposite. All you need to know is the mans ideological history and the long line of ideologues who have helped him shape that ideology. ese include Professor Edward Said, spokesman for Palestinian terrorists, under whom Obama studied at Columbia University. e question of Jerusalem at the Democrats convention threatened to open a can of worms that Barack Obama cannot a ord to have opened, least of all in an election year. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMObamas (Un)American Auto Bailout OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateCue Fanfare for the Common Man and rev up the Government Motors engines. Wednesday is Great American Auto Bailout Day at the Democratic National Convention. Party propagandists have prepared a primetime-ready lm touting the rescues bene ts for American workers. UAW President Bob King will sing the savior-in-chiefs praises. But like all of the economic success stories manufactured by the White House, the $85 billion government handout is a big fat farce. I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back, Obama bragged on the campaign trail. Heres the inconvenient story they wont tell you: GM is once again irting with bankruptcy despite massive government purchases propping up its sales gures. GM stock is rock-bottom. Losses continue to be revised in the wrong direction. According to e Detroit News, e Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. ats 15 percent higher than its previous forecast. e claims that GM paid back its taxpayerfunded loans in full -a story peddled in campaign ads narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks -were debunked by the Treasury Departments TARP watchdog this summer. GM still owes nearly $30 billion of the $50 billion it received, and its lending arm still owes nearly $15 billion of the more than $17 billion it received. Bailout watchdog Mark Modica of the National Legal and Policy Center adds: In addition to U.S. taxpayers anteing up, Canada put in over $10 billion, and GM was relieved of about $28 billion of bondholder obligations as UAW claims were protected. ats an improvement of almost $90 billion to the balance sheet, and the company still lags the competition. While the Obama administration wraps the auto bailout in red, white and blue, its foreign workers and overseas plants that are reaping redistributive rewards. GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by an estimated 55 percent after the bailout, according to industry watchers. GMs Dan Akerson crowed at the Beijing auto show earlier this year: One of our aims is to help grow a new generation of automotive engineers, designers and leaders right here in China. e U.S. auto giants ventures with the Communist regime include Shanghai OnStar Telematics Co., Ltd.; GM China Advanced Technical Center; FAWGM Light Duty Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd., in Harbin, Heilongjiang; FAW-GMs Changchun plant in Changchun, Jilin; FAW-GM Hongta Yunnan Automobile Manufacturing Co., Ltd., in Qujing, Yunnan; and Shanghai Chengxin Used Car Operation and Management Co., Ltd. In Europe, the UAWs appointee to the Government Motors Board of Directors, Steve Girsky, recklessly pushed the feds to hold onto GMs failing German-based Opel AG. e Great American Auto Bailout has been subsidizing this hemorrhaging enterprise while Obama failed to deliver on his 2008 campaign promise to salvage plants like the one in GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryans hometown of Janesville, Wis. According to Forbes magazine, GM Europe, comprised mostly of Opel and its sister brand, Vauxhall, lost $617 million in the rst half of 2012, on top of a $747 million loss in 2011 and a $1.8 billion loss in 2010. In all, GM has lost almost $17 billion in Europe since 1999. While Team Obama lambastes GOP rival Mitt Romney for outsourcing, Government Motors is now planning to invest $1 billion over the next ve years -not in America, but in Russia. ats on top of $7 billion total in China, close to $1 billion in Mexico, and $600 million for a shirt sponsorship deal with Manchester United, the British soccer club. e DNC will put a rank-and- le U.S. autoworker on stage to back up Big Labors cheerleading of the deal. Rest assured, this human shield will not tell viewers how Obama and the union bosses colluded to pervert bankruptcy law and shaft some 20,000 nonunion Delphi auto parts workers. e forgotten victims saw their pensions erode by up to 70 percent; their health bene ts disappeared. e rst lady is radio silent. Obama consigliere Valerie Jarrett ducked questions about the Delphi injustice from e Washington Times here in Charlotte. Only in a fantasyland where America has 57 states, JOBS is a three-letter word and bailouts are achievements does Obamas rescue math add up. Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry, Obama vows. God help the American worker.

Have a voice through the Levy County Journal Over the past several months of the current campaign season, we have been inundated with commentary regarding Medicare and more speci cally, partisan accusations of the Republican Plan to gut Medicare. I am writing to you as a Senior citizen of the State of Florida and a Medicare bene ciary in hopes of shedding some light on the current debate. is letter is not intended to support or to denigrate either parties position on Medicare. It merely hopes to give you a truthful and fact- nding summary of the debate. I will tell you up front that I have spent a great deal of time researching the following commentary. I have done so as I wholeheartedly believe we are entitled to know the truth and must be responsible enough to make our voting decision based upon truth. First of all, the issue of Medicare reform MUST be addressed and, in the best interest of every American, addressed now. On its present course, Medicare is not sustainable. Rising enrollment and increasing costs are outstripping the rates in which the federal budget can maintain the program. us the promise to fund the healthcare of elderly Americans without exhausting their retirement savings will be broken and in the process will bankrupt the system and America. Look it up, the CBO tells us Medicare is 3.7% of our GDP and rising faster than anything taxpayers can support. Currently, Medicare is the number one spending item on the federal budget. One would think it to be defense or social security but not so. So where do our candidates stand in their proposals to x Medicare. Lets start with the newly passed Heath Care A ordability Act (Obama Care). Every day we are nding out more and more about the cost of this law to taxpayers in new taxes, decimation of small business to rising health care premiums, creation of a multi-level bureaucracy to oversee the program (no less than 26 new agencies and committees to oversee and regulate the program-including a community health care coordinator for each Heath Care Organization), and 1,600 new IRS collection agents to ensure we are paying for our health care insurance. But more importantly, a $714 billion dollar cut to Medicare funding. A fact recently admitted to by President Obama. And, still more critical is formation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board whose purpose and focus is the rationing of health care services. Where and what will the $714 billion dollar cuts be made? ere are no answers to this fact. And, have you given thought to exactly what rationing of health care is? Let me give you an example, a friends Canadian 64 year-old father had a heart attack. Because of his age, he was told by the government-run health care system that he was too old for advanced treatment (cardiac catheterization, stent placement, and certainly not open-heart surgery). He was given an appointment with a Cardiologist two months in the future and told to take it easy. Every day hospitals in Florida see Canadians for procedures not allowed or rationed in their Country. What would you want Medicare to say to your 64 year-old Dad whose heart would bene t from a stent allowing him many more years on the golf course? Another a ordable fact in the HCAA is the steep cuts in physician reimbursement for Medicare patients. Cuts that will cause doctors to cease taking on additional Medicare patients or prematurely close their practice due to the high cost of overhead from the regulations included in the HCAA. Next time you get your statement from Medicare look at exactly what Medicare paid the doctor. You will be shocked that our docs can keep their doors open. ese are facts from the Democrat Party candidate for president. Look them up yourself.please. On the other hand, what are the facts An Open Letter to Seniors Regarding the Current Medicare Debatecontinued on page 5ALetter to the Editor

What are the facts to Ryans Medicare plan: Commitment to those 55 years and older that the current Medicare plan will not change for them thus keeping Medicares promises to those who are now in or near retirement. In 2023, seniors (those who become eligible by turning 65 on or after January 1, 2023) would be given a choice of private insurance plans competing alongside Medicares traditional fee-for-service program. Medicare would provide a premium-support payment either to pay for or o set the premium of the plan chosen by the senior. THIS IS NOT A VOUCHER PROGRAM as Medicare premium-support payment would be paid, by Medicare, directly to the plan or the fee-for-service program. Medicare recipients of the future would choose from a list of guaranteed coverage options and a health plan that best suits their needs. e Medicare premium-support payment would be adjusted so the sick would receive higher payments if their condition worsened, Lower income seniors would receive additional assistance to help cover out-of-pocket expenses; and wealthier seniors would assume a greater share for their premiums. Traditional Medicare would remain available for senior who prefer the traditional program Whether the senior in the future chooses Traditional Medicare or the Premium-Support plan, they would have their choice of healthcare options without loss of security or a ordability in their retirement. Spokesperson for the Democrat Party claims this to be a voucher program costing seniors $6,400 annually. Where this gure or claim comes from is untrue and unfounded. ere is no mention or provision for this claim in the proposed budget. Access to healthcare would be ensured by the Ryan plan as it proposes legislation to stabilize physician reimbursement. us allowing for a system that fairly compensates doctors who treat Medicare patients. Ends the raid on the Medicare Trust Fund by using any potential Medicare savings in current law to be used to shore-up Medicare. e current HCAA counts the Medicare dollar twice once for shoring up Medicare and still again for increasing entitlements. Medical Liability Insurance Reform the Ryan plan would advance common sense curbs on frivolous and abusive lawsuits. Means testing for premiums for high-income seniors Ryan plan advances a bipartisan proposal to means-test Medicare Parts B and D for high-income seniors.

Wranglers n Rhinestones Casino Night Adds to LCSF Co ersBy Lisa Statham Posteraro Once more the GFWC Williston Jr. Womans Club hosted another successful Wranglers n Rhinestones Casino Night at the Williston Highlands Golf and Country Club, roping in over $5000 to fund teacher grants. Sponsors for the event donated $4700, and almost $700 was taken in at the door the night of the event, Saturday, August 25th. e silent auction brought in almost $1200. After expenses, the club will donate $5130 to the Levy County Schools Foundation, the non-pro t organization which helps teachers purchase additional materials and supplies in addition to providing scholarships for deserving graduating seniors. According to Monique Allnutt, one of the organizers, 12 club members spent over 200 hours in the planning of the annual event, which included putting out quite a spread of snacks for the groups enjoyment during the evening. ere were 15 event sponsors and 28 individuals and businesses which donated prizes for the silent auction. Perennial favorite, Cracker Johnson, auctioned o some of the bigger prizes. (Johnsons wife Angie is the director of the LCSF.) We would like to thank our sponsors, said Allnutt. e 2012 sponsors included Palms Medical Group; Waste Pro; Stonehedge Farm South; Perkins State Bank; Williston Ace Hardware; Prairie Sand; Rutland Insurance; Jerry and Marguerite Robinson; Sandlin Farms; Warehouse Flooring; Karlton's Heating & Air, Inc.; Tri-County Oil Distributors, Inc.; Bobby McCallum for Sheri ; Levy Animal Clinic, Dr. Wade Bullock; and Danny J. Shipp Clerk of Court. Volunteers who worked as dealers at the casino included Jimmy Breeden, Ronnie Byrd, Pricilla Fugate, Steve Guinsler, Jason Langworthy, Ann Larkins, Dedee McLeod, Keith Petteway, Jim Posteraro and Rob Sistrunk. Most of these people have been doing this for us year after year, and we really appreciate it, said Junior Catrina Sistrunk, whose husband Rob was one of the dealers. ey looked quite professional with their white shirts, dark pants even some Wranglers and garters on their sleeves. And we were especially glad to see quite a few Williston teachers, such as Pricilla [Fugate], support our e orts to support them. All the players start out with a cup of chips and have fun making pretend bets at the games of their choosing. Quite a few individuals running for public o ce at the county level also attended the event, showing their support of the Juniors fundraising e orts for the public school teachers. Others made donations as sponsors. It was important to our club to keep the Junior Scholarship viable. Williston High School seniors apply through the Foundation, but we fund it. And we also wanted to continue funding teacher grants as we have been doing the last few years, said Junior president, Brandy Petteway. Weve tried to have our Casino Night at di erent times, but the end of August seems to work the best, said Catrina Sistrunk. So look for next years Casino Night and come enjoy a fun evening AND help support Levy Countys public schools!

Two of the guests were delighted to nd that Evelyn Etheridge had joined us that day. Mrs. Etheridge was a teacher for one and a teacher mentor for the other. e visitors were from Inglis, Jacksonville, Perry and Chie and. Newcomers and non-quilters are always welcome.

With two frames going, well have one quilt in the Main room and the other in the Quilt room so the volunteers will be able to work on it during the week.

In the background, you can see the quilts and other items, we've hung on the wall in Winnelle's corner.Dear Citizens of Levy County, Our children are our future, and they deserve an education that will best prepare them to make an honest living and to ful ll their dreams. Our children deserve knowledgeable and inspired teachers in the classroom. Our children, teachers, sta administrators, and our communities deserve a knowledgeable leader who has a vision for the future of education in Levy County. For these reasons, I am announcing my candidacy for Superintendent of Levy County Schools. I have the knowledge, the compassion, and the vision to transcend self-interests, and to create a climate of openness and integrity. I believe we must create an education environment where all individuals are respected. Levy County deserves a leader who listens to those on the frontline; who treats employees as professionals and who empowers educators. Levy County deserves a superintendent who brings out the best in everyone. I will bring to the o ce of superintendent an element of mutual respect for all who work in the schools, as well as for parents, students, and other shareholders. We need to feel hopeful about decisions that a ect us and our students, instead of feeling resigned that nothing is going to change, and that politics-as-usual will rule the day. We need decisions to be made that truly are in the best interest of all students. I am approachable, and I value the opinion of others. I will take into consideration your concerns as we evaluate what is best for students and schools in Levy County. I am a long time resident of Levy County, and I raised two wonderful children, Beth and Matthew. As an educator in Levy County, I worked in Bronson, Yankeetown, Cedar Key, and Chie and. As a past leader in the Levy County Education Association for 12 years, I bring a wealth of advocacy experience to the o ce of superintendent, both for employees and the students we serve. Additionally, my work in this eld provided me with a strong background in educational law, collective bargaining, and school and district budgets. I ask for your support. I am hopeful that we can bring about the changes needed to provide our children with the education they deserve. After all, its their future. Cindy Roach for Superintendent of Levy County Schools Bingo in Bronson continued from page 1A Kennedy was also concerned about the possibility the Internet cafs that were rejected might have a problem with bingo being allowed in the town. Im afraid it could be a slippery slope with the Internet cafs, he said. Council Attorney Steven Warm said he researched the issue and believes the bingo operation can operate in Bronson. He said a municipality can authorize such an operation. e bingo hall would not need a state license. e bingo will be played in the former restaurant owned by the Childrens Table o State Road 24. If you authorize a bingo game, it wouldnt automatically mean an Internet caf would have a case, he said. Brown said the Childrens Table has always had problems raising money in Bronson where 1,000 of the hungry live who use the Childrens Table as a way to get free produce. He said the organization had received one donation of $700 from the Southern Sisters. He said he looked at many alternatives for fundraising and was reluctant to choose bingo, but he said he surrendered to the idea when he found nothing else that would provide a steady source of income. In a nal matter, the council approved a tentative town budget of $1.8 million and a tentative property tax millage rate of 3.6575. Several council members expressed concerns about the amount of overtime pay being claimed. Clerk Kelli Brettel said the overtime results from the fact that the town is run by three people who are spread thin with their workload. e council wants more regular reports from Brettel on the towns expenses and the overtime being claimed.

In the distance is Yankee Stadium and brownstones. e Chrysler Building features a red glow with movie marquee. ere is even the Daily Planet squeezed in between the Public Library and an automat. Larrick uses fog machines to billow out smoke from factory chimneys. Hidden below the roof at the base is a 12V small computer fan to force the fog out. Another rooftop has a water tower with a louvered roof that vents steam. e 9/11 memorial is an ongoing project for Dr. Larrick with yearly new building additions and infrastructure improvements. It is good stress. Every year it is a deadline, and a Remembrance!And America remembers. Back to the day when terrorists in the sky attacked the American ideals portrayed in the New York skyline killing over 3,000 innocent people that day including those that gave unsel shly to try and nd victims under the rubble and pull them to safety, or not. Inextricably linked to this NYC mayhem was the attack on our military headquarters at the Pentagon. And the thwarted attempt to do more damage to Washington DC which was denied to the cowards in the sky by the utmost bravery of the passengers in that same sky who gave up their lives to save others who would have been killed. e story of the brave Americans involved in the aftermath tells the tale of why the attack would not and could not work. It is the American spirit of individual freedom and ght that could not be quenched and only grew deeper and stronger. We will Remember and be even better and stronger.By Kathy Hilliard, EditorDr. Bruce Larrick, DDS, a/k/a Dr. Smile, is a dentist in Gainesville who specializes in making, improving, and creating smiles. Larrick was recruited to produce the audiovisual curriculum at the University of Floridas College of Dentistry while it was still in the planning stages. But at this time of year his mind turns to his train layout memorializing the catastrophic attack on New York Citys Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. e memorial is an intricate work of love to help Remember the terrorist event that took America by surprise with its intentional violence and caused the death of over 3,000 innocent victims. To my knowledge, this is the largest indoor 9/11 replica/memorial said Larrick, holding a 9/11 tourist souvenir of the Twin Towers. His three-foot tall model is placed in a very realistic depiction that duplicates New York City including the Lionel NYC subways. e entire memorial depiction is part of Larricks huge outdoor O gauge model train layout. For a stressed dentist, its the perfect hobby. I can snap a piece of plastic or bend a wire to force a t, and theres no patient attached! Larrick explained that he brings his artistic senses to his model trains. e entire scene is an illusionwith perspective and placements, spacingand most importantly: lighting, said Larrick. He pointed out that our instinctive, uncontrollable attraction to light is how the smile also attracts. Larricks attention to detail makes for numerous eye-catching creationsall with indirect lighting. He uses the newL.E.D. lights, actually made to light up trick cars. ey are very available at auto parts stores and are inexpensive using 12V DCvery safe and uncomplicated.9/11 Memorialized in an O Gauge Train By Kathy Hilliard and Suzette Cook e August 25th races at Bronson Speedway were a hit of lightning, that is. e sky show knocked out all the power and lights moving the bevy of planned special events to this Saturday, September 15. So the pits and crews will rev them up again and the fans can watch events like: Veterans Appreciation Race where $5 pays for entry for a Vet and family, the Pro Challenge Triple Crown from three states, Legends, Bandeleros and more including the Track Championship and Big Wheel races. Yep, the owners Ann and Chris Young are always up for anything which explains why ten Big Wheels showed up a few months ago for track photographer Suzette Cook and her husband, Aaron Mankins, to put together. Ann wanted to give the kid fans the same excitement as the grownups so she found a way. is Saturday kids ages 4 to 6 will have a chance to race on the asphalt. It is a family a air at Bronson Speedway and the more the merrier. Gene Owen, Chip Hollywood Owen, his family and crew are awesome. When they pull up in what we call a Motor Totor they bring a couple hundred years of racing experience with them. When the Fowler brothers arrive with three generations, its family and down-home cooking that goes on after the races. ey always insist on joining them after a race night for cat sh, swamp cabbage -you name it. Its generosity at its best. Larry Welter, Jr., his dad Larry senior and the whole Welter racing crew are a force to be reckoned with but they bring class, heart and plain old competitive streaks that bring out the best action on the track. When Larry isnt in rst place hes always rst to jump out of his car and congratulate his competitor or teammate. And dont forget the Parker boys who give everyone a run for their money. at number three car can take a lickin and keep on tickin. One night Jackson Fowlers Hornet truck ipped right at turn three and by the time anyone got there, he was out of the truck helping the crew ip it back over. He had a at, ran into the pits and had the crew change it, came back out and won the race! Tommy Ausburn, Jr. has a huge fan in junior agman Ronnie Greene who has his own set of ags. Ronnie knows his agging and sometimes hes quicker than the o cial agger. Keep an eye on him because I expect hell make it up to NASCAR in the next decade. e last time Ronnie was in the winners circle, Tommy gave his racing helmet to him as a thanks for his loyalty. Tommy Sr. recently came back to the track and is racing his Sportsman, a division that brings a whole other avor to the Bronson Speedway. Shelton Bowers #32 is a fan favorite who keeps getting the most votes from spectators. (If you bring a piece of paper and write the name and car # of your favorite driver at the ticket window, you get in for only $5 to watch the races.) Chip Hollywood Owen is the only Bronson Speedway racer who earned the bragging right, I beat an Earnhardt. On June 30, Je rey Earnhardt (as in grandson of Dale Sr.) visited Bronson Speedway to promote his Tobacco Free Florida sponsor (did you know Daytona International Speedway went smoke-free in the grandstands this summer?). Je rey contacted Bronson Speedway to visit and designated a section of the stands as tobacco free as well. en Welsey Keller Racing of Lake City decided to loan Earnhardt his Showstopper #8 Sportsman to race the locals. e rest is bragging history for Owen. When special race guests from D.A.A.R.A come out with their vintage cars you feel like youre in a time warp. And, of course, the Spectator Race is always fun. Troy Fowler, Jr. just won a spectator race so it was fun to photograph him in the winners circle before he left for college.In the kitchen, Travis Fultz from the Newberry Highs culinary program cooks for us. Bronson Speedway would like to see more of those students working in concessions during upcoming races. A favorite anthem of the season was Brandon Maxwell from Newberry High jammin out with his electric guitar and rocking a Jimmy Hendrix style anthem. e crowd roared. Come on out and join the racing family at Bronson Speedway for the Final Points race of the season on Saturday night September 15 at 7 p.m. Story information by Suzette Cook, Bronson Speedway Track Photographer and a high school journalism teacher.

Only an occasional hint of nervous laughter rose from the predawn staging area. A rag tag regiment for sure, wed gathered from near and far; deeming the mission worthy, and willing to accept the cost and sacri ces it would entail upon our families. Outside the screen door lay enough weaponry and ammunition to hold o an all out Russian ground assault. After receiving orders, our convoy lit out into the light rain and drove south under the cover of darkness. About twenty minutes before dawn we turned o the pavement onto an old farmers road, where we precariously crossed a slippery little span that forded a steep ravine. e lead truck cut deep ruts into the soft earth and the rest of us fell right in behind. Just short of the ambush zone we hid the trucks along a tree line and led out into the soggy elds to spread out. I hunkered down in a little patch of cattails, thankful for the cover they provided. Alertly, I double checked my weapon to make sure Id shucked a round in the chamber. I knew thered be no room for error once this September morning came calling. Within minutes the calm gray skies appeared and were awakened with the crack of gun re. First one shot, then another, then the whole eld was clapping like thunder. Voices shouted to me from my ank, Here they come! I stabbed my barrel through the cattails, easing o the safety. Hastily I squeezed o three quick blasts. To my surprise, the little bird just dipped, dived, and ew right on by; none the worse for wear! I could hear the other hunters shucking new shells into their guns and mumbling words Ill not repeat. Dove huntingtheres nothing like it. We soon surmised that the birds werent ying well in that particular eld, so we headed back to the trucks to try another. Gerald, the land owner, yelled, Move out, and turned the convoy around. We followed along behind in his ruts, six or seven trucks back. As we came around the corner to the bridge I noticed something odd. What in the world? I exclaimed. Geralds tailgate was pointing to the sky! e culvert had caved in and sent him nose rst o into the ravine. Hed already climbed back up the bank safely. ankfully, his fancy new double barrel shotgun was unscathed. His brother rushed over, Wasnt grandma riding with you? Geralds eyes got big. Hold my gun, he said. We pulled Geralds truck out with a chain, but we were still in quite a predicament. is only way out was across that slippery half caved bridge. e older guys gathered around to strategize. However, before they could even scratch their chins the younger bucks were circling around making runs at it. Mud was ying, and engines were revving to a loud chorus of Yee Haws. I felt like I was in a Dukes of Hazard episode! e older guys just shook their heads in disgust. After much thought, they revealed their much wiser plan. eyd get the younger fellows to drive their trucks across for them. ey did. Eventually we all made it; some of us a little worse for wear. Ask Grandma. Have you ever fallen in with a rag tag bunch? Let me tell you, theyll sure lead you down some slippery slopes. e devils always running some sort of convoy under the cover of darkness. Sadly, there appears to be no shortage of volunteers willing to slide over into his ruts. Somebodys always poking up out of the cattails, Lets go to the casinos and eat a bu et. Dont do it!!! ere are stronger people than you down at the pawn shop right now hocking their kids X-Box for another roll of the dice. en theres always that new girl at your job batting her eyes at you, I wish my husband was as understanding and handsome as you. Run!!! You know shes lying. Youve looked in the mirror! Sin is never worth the cost and sacri ce it will entail upon your life, or your familys. Its a shaky bridge to nowhere, and it will cram your nose in the mud faster than you can say Yee Haw. Not to mention, displaying your tailgate for all to see. If youre already plodding along knee deep in sin right now, repent. Circle back around to the solid foundation God has laid for you in Jesus. He will forgive you and lead you out. It may not be easy, it may take time, and you may come out a little worse for the wear, but at least you will come out! I can testify to it. God will rescue you if you will only humble yourself enough to reach up out of the ditch for His helping hand. But anywayIts much easier walking through this life when you stay on the straight and narrow and keep your boots clean. Dont say you cant do it. e Bible promises. (But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no di erent from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you cant stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT).-Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

Each trophy bass had a yellow plastic dart tag inserted into the back of the sh just below the dorsal (back) n. Each tag has a unique number that identi es a monetary reward value and information on how to report catches. Tagged bass came from 41 lakes and rivers that varied in size, water quality, habitat types, sh populations and angler demographics. Angler catch and harvest rates vary between lakes and rivers, so this approach allows for a more informed statewide estimate. After six months, results are already revealing. So far, 21 percent of tagged trophy bass have been caught and reported, and 83 percent of them were released alive. Anglers shing in tournaments accounted for 22 percent of reports. irty percent of trophy sh reported were caught on live shiners. Interestingly, 28 percent of tagged bass heavier than 10 pounds have been caught, but just three of seven (43 percent) of those were released. is shows bigger bass are equally susceptible to capture but su er increased harvest. Most anglers harvested trophy bass to have a skin-mount made, rather than for food. e most recent capture was a sh stocked by the FWC as a ngerling but weighed more than 10 pounds when it was caught and released in Lake Talquin. Another recent tagging study by the FWC and University of Florida revealed that 20 percent to 35 percent of all largemouth bass longer than 14 inches were caught annually by anglers. Since trophy bass typically take six to 10 years to reach that size, its evident that recycling plays an important role. Although catch rates of individual trophy bass may be about the same as for smaller sh, there are fewer trophy sh. is information will provide an important baseline for when TrophyCatch (see below) launches in October. e FWC will continue the statewide tagging study for the next ve years to estimate changes in catch-and-release rates of trophy sh and angler participation. Anglers should look for tagged sh. e plastic tags are 5-inch yellow streamers with Trophy printed on them, followed by a number, reward value and contact information. Over time, tags may get covered by algae, which can be rubbed o to reveal tag information. If you catch a tagged sh, cut the tag as close to the skin of the sh as possible and return the tag to the FWC. Anglers may release or harvest tagged bass as they normally would, depending upon local harvest regulations; however, only released bass are eligible for separate TrophyCatch recognition and rewards. For details or to report tags, call sheries research biologist Jason Dotson at 850-363-6037. is tagging study was initiated partially to implement the Black Bass Management Plan that was developed with input from biologists, anglers and stakeholders (MyFWC. com/Fishing), and which the FWC approved in June 2011. Anglers indicated that greater opportunities for trophy-size sh should be an important component of the plan. So the FWC made trophy largemouth bass management a priority and plans to launch a trophy bass documentation program called TrophyCatch in October.Trophy Bass Tagging Study Already Revealing Dart tags are inserted below the back n with a tagging gun similar to those used to a x some price tags in clothing. The reward tags in trophy bass are yellow and about the thickness of a big strand of spaghetti. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is o ering a free hunter safety Internet-completion course in Gilchrist County. e class is Sept. 29 from 8 a.m. until completed.
