Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 89, NO. 12 50 CENTS THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2012 www.levyjournalonline.com Hog Hunts Local Youth Opinion Piece BES & WES School News Local Bid available Around the Nature Coast Community CalendarSee page 8ASee page 3ASee page 2B & 7BSee page 6BCedar Key Lions Club members have been in training to operate early childhood vision screening equipment to identify children up to 6 years old with undetected vision loss due to Amblyopia factors (Lazy Eye) and refractive errors. Ambylopia is easy to treat, but early detection before the age of 6 is vital, as correction must take place before the age of six while a child's visual system is still developing. KidSight, a Lions International program, has now expanded into Levy County with the Cedar Key Lions Club working in collaboration with the University of Florida Pediatric Ophthalmology Department. rough this partnership, Lions Club volunteers and UF vision professionals o er free-of-charge screening at area preschools and daycare centers. Lions Club members are trained to conduct the vision screenings. Lions volunteers arrange the screening sessions and use a special handheld camera that takes digital photographs of the eyes that is used by the University of Florida to identify potential vision problems. After the Lions Club conducts the screening, the information is sent to the University of Florida Pediatric Ophthalmology Department where screening results are interpreted for possible vision problems. After the screening photographs have been interpreted, results are reported back to families. Parents receive a noti“ cation form that tells them: their child passed the screening, the photo was unreadable, a borderline or mild problem was detected or a vision problem was identi“ ed and their child should be examined by a specialist. Cedar Key Lions KidSight coordinator Judy Duvall says, "Our free screening is conducted at any child care center in Levy County that requests one. We do it wherever the kids are, be they daycare centers, kindergartens or preschools. Our goal is to screen every child aged 1-5 in Levy County. Ž "KidSight screening is so important, because it goes beyond the regular vision screening provided in schools. With specialized KidSight equipment that the Cedar Key Lions Club has helped purchase, we can detect children's vision problems early, giving the child an opportunity for having a good start of going through school with their vision corrected," she explained.Lions KidSight Vision Screening Comes to Levy County By Kathy HilliardEditorSince last July, 2012, water districts have been pouring over their new “ scal year budgets and there seems to be members on both sides of the “ scal fence. Tallahassee falls on the side of cutting the budgets in these times as does the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. e water districts have the same woes as the cities … they need the same revenues or more but the constituency is crying for lower taxes. e proposed rate for the Levy County area for Suwannee River Water Management is .4143/$1,000 of home value and for the western section of Levy County the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts proposed rate is .3928/$1,000. And the same juggling of rates game applies to the water districts as cities with the result of a higher rate not necessarily giving more revenue due to lower property assessments. With “ ve water districts in Florida the taskforce to determine revenues is hearing from many and varied voices. e environmentalists want more money to do more for the environment, the taxpayers want to pay less right now during this slow economy and the government and water districts are dealing with lines of demarcation in budget cuts. Even though SB 1986 was passed earlier this year to cut property taxes by $210 million, the Governor and FDEP favor keeping the same or slightly lower tax rates. It appears that 20 former board members are not happy with the cuts or the direction from Tallahassee and wrote a letter to Gov. Rick Scott stating their case for restoring the funding to regional agencies. e letter stated the bene“ ts of keeping the revenues up to do more to hedge future water supplies from a growing population while at the same time only saving an average homeowner of a $125,000 home just $20 per year in taxes. Former SRWMD board member David Flagg of Gainesville said,  e governor and DEP more than previous administrations have lessened the independent decision making of water management districts in my opinion. I dont mean that DEP is irresponsible, I just believe they need to give the water management districts the latitude of independent thinking and decision they were created to have and not run out of Tallahassee all “ ve of them.Ž Patrick Gillespie of the DEP said that the department collaboratedŽ with the WMDs to help each of them to live within their means without raising the cost of living for Floridians. Below is the letter from the current “ ve district board chairs sent Monday to those 20 former board members answering their plea to Gov. Scott. Bill Kerr of the St. Johns WMD stated that they only had time to get 20 signatures to send their letter to Gov. Scott. Russell Price, formerly of the Northwest Florida WMD from 1999 to 2004, said no one contacted him about signing the letter and if they had they would have been wasting their time since at this time everyone has to cut back including the WMDs.

First and foremost, we appreciate and share your goals for wise management of the states water resources. During your own years of service, you tackled similar water resource challenges: sustaining water supplies, protecting natural systems, improving water quality and providing ” ood protection. ese mission elements were„and remain today„the driving force behind our agencies work. During the past decade, intensive growth in Florida added signi“ cant resources to the annual budgets of the water management districts, allowing the districts to expand beyond their core mission. While district funding for initiatives such as land acquisitions, building expansions and local partnership projects bought goodwill, the additional “ nancial resources also led to unrealistic growth in administrative functions and overhead, including sta size, salaries and bene“ ts. Features such as dual retirement bene“ ts, excessive compensation, annual leave purchases, unsustainable retirement health subsidies and similar bene“ ts exceeded those of state employees. Today, in a di erent “ scal climate, the Governor and Legislature are focused on prudent use of taxpayer dollars and not increasing the burden of more government and higher taxes on Floridas citizens. Similarly, the water management districts Governing Boards have recognized the need for more e cient operations that are clearly and directly focused on our core mission. In addition to improving our administrative e ciency, the water management districts continue to direct substantial Water Boards Adopt Budget Cuts and Now Former Members Cry Foul continued on page 5A continued on page 3A Chie” and Police Chief Robert Douglas is a happy man. e Chief and his fellow co-workers are getting ready in about 3 weeks to have use of a greatly-needed extension to the department building on East Park Avenue and US 19. Douglas said, We have run out of room here. At sta meetings there are about four people sitting and the rest are all standing. We use every inch of this place.Ž e present o ce was built in the 1980s, according to Douglas. Douglas is most proud that there are no tax dollars being used for the expansion. e “ nance department told him there was $17,000 in impact fee money available and the 501(c)(3) group Friends of the Chie” and Police Department gave another $20,000.

The Levy County Journal4ASeptember 27, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 The Fallacy of Redistribution Thomas SowellCreators Syndicate e recently discovered tape on which Barack Obama said back in 1998 that he believes in redistribution is not really news. He said the same thing to Joe the Plumber four years ago. But the surfacing of this tape may serve a useful purpose if it gets people to thinking about what the consequences of redistribution are. ose who talk glibly about redistribution often act as if people are just inert objects that can be placed here and there, like pieces on a chess board, to carry out some grand design. But if human beings have their own responses to government policies, then we cannot blithely assume that government policies will have the e ect intended. e history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty. e communist nations were a classic example, but by no means the only example. In theory, con“ scating the wealth of the more successful people ought to make the rest of the society more prosperous. But when the Soviet Union con“ scated the wealth of successful farmers, food became scarce. As many people died of starvation under Stalin in the 1930s as died in Hitlers Holocaust in the 1940s. How can that be? It is not complicated. You can only con“ scate the wealth that exists at a given moment. You cannot con“ scate future wealth -and that future wealth is less likely to be produced when people see that it is going to be con“ scated. Farmers in the Soviet Union cut back on how much time and e ort they invested in growing their crops, when they realized that the government was going to take a big part of the harvest. ey slaughtered and ate young farm animals that they would normally keep tending and feeding while raising them to maturity. People in industry are not inert objects either. Moreover, unlike farmers, industrialists are not tied to the land in a particular country. Russian aviation pioneer Igor Sikorsky could take his expertise to America and produce his planes and helicopters thousands of miles away from his native land. Financiers are even less tied down, especially today, when vast sums of money can be dispatched electronically to any part of the world. If con“ scatory policies can produce counterproductive repercussions in a dictatorship, they are even harder to carry out in a democracy. A dictatorship can suddenly swoop down and grab whatever it wants. But a democracy must “ rst have public discussions and debates. ose who are targeted for con“ scation can see the handwriting on the wall, and act accordingly. Among the most valuable assets in any nation are the knowledge, skills and productive experience that economists call human capital.Ž When successful people with much human capital leave the country, either voluntarily or because of hostile governments or hostile mobs whipped up by demagogues exploiting envy, lasting damage can be done to the economy they leave behind. Fidel Castros con“ scatory policies drove successful Cubans to ” ee to Florida, often leaving much of their physical wealth behind. But poverty-stricken refugees rose to prosperity again in Florida, while the wealth they left behind in Cuba did not prevent the people there from being poverty stricken under Castro. e lasting wealth the refugees took with them was their human capital. We have all heard the old saying that giving a man a “ sh feeds him only for a day, while teaching him to “ sh feeds him for a lifetime. Redistributionists give him a “ sh and leave him dependent on the government for more “ sh in the future. If the redistributionists were serious, what they would want to distribute is the ability to “ sh, or to be productive in other ways. Knowledge is one of the few things that can be distributed to people without reducing the amount held by others. at would better serve the interests of the poor, but it would not serve the interests of politicians who want to exercise power, and to get the votes of people who are dependent on them. Barack Obama can endlessly proclaim his slogan of Forward,Ž but what he is proposing is going backwards to policies that have failed repeatedly in countries around the world. Yet, to many people who cannot be bothered to stop and think, redistribution sounds good. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMThe Great Tax Divide OPINION Thomas SowellCreators Syndicate ere was a time when Democrats and Republicans alike could talk sense about tax rates, in terms of what is best for the economy, without demagoguery about tax cuts for the rich.Ž Democratic presidents Woodrow Wilson and John F. Kennedy spoke plainly about the fact that higher tax rates on individuals and businesses did not automatically translate into higher tax revenues for the government. Beyond some point, high tax rates on those with high incomes simply led to those incomes being invested in tax-free bonds, with the revenue from those bonds being completely lost to the government -and the investments lost to the economy. As President John F. Kennedy put it, it is a paradoxical truth that tax rates are too high and tax revenues are too low and the soundest way to raise the revenues in the long run is to cut the rates now.Ž is was because investors e orts to avoid tax liabilitiesŽ make certain types of less productive activity more pro“ table than more valuable undertakings,Ž and this in turn inhibits our growth and e ciency.Ž Both Democratic president Woodrow Wilson and Republican presidents Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush said virtually the same thing. is disconnect between higher tax rates and higher tax revenues is not peculiar to the United States. Iceland and India both collected more tax revenue after tax rates were cut. In Iceland the corporate tax rate was cut from 45 percent to 18 percent between 1991 and 2001 -and the revenue from corporate taxes tripled at the lower rate. It doesnt always have to be this way. Everything depends on how high the tax rate is initially and how other things are going in the economy. But at least we can do without the claims that tax cuts are just ways of helping the richŽ or that we have to raise the tax rate because we have a de“ cit. We need more tax revenue, not higher tax rates that can back“ re. is has not always been either a partisan issue or an ideological issue. John Maynard Keynes said in 1933 that given su cient time to gather the fruits, a reduction of taxation will run a better chance, than an increase, of balancing the budget.Ž New York Times economics writer David Leonhardt recently took the no panaceaŽ approach to rebut the argument for tax cuts. Presidents Bush 41 and Bill Clinton both raised tax rates, and the economy continued to grow, while the economy declined after President Bush 43s tax rate cuts, Leonhardt argued. e 800-pound gorilla that gets ignored by people who use these talking points is the dominant economic factor of those years -namely the huge and unsustainable housing boom that led to a catastrophic housing bust that took down the whole economy on Bush 43s watch. Tax cuts are not a panacea. In fact, nothing is a panacea or else, by de“ nition, all the problems of the world would already be solved. Ironically, it was Mr. Leonhardts own newspaper that reported in 2006, An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget de“ cit this year.Ž Expectations are of course in the eye of the beholder. Rising tax revenues in the wake of a cut in high tax rates was a possibility expected by “ ve di erent administrations, both Democratic and Republican, over a period of more than three-quarters of a century. No one expected automatic and instant surges in economic growth. Both John F. Kennedy and John Maynard Keynes spoke in terms of the long-run e ects of lower tax rates, not the kind of instant results suggested by Mr. Leonhardts graph of growth rates -least of all during a very volatile housing market in which American homeowners took trillions of dollars in equity out of their homes. Back during the 1920s, when there was no such monumental economic factor as the housing boom and bust until 1929, there was a rapid increase in both tax revenues and jobs after the tax rates were cut. Today, the uncertainties generated by an activist and anti-business administration probably have more of a chilling e ect on investments than the tax rate does. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Stu ed with items you dont want or havent used in a very long time? ese days, to top it o most of us are afraid to delete anything in fear that we may do something wrong or delete important system “ les that would cause more issues. Well, fear not! Here are a few easy to follow suggestions that may help you clear out some the clutter without compromising system “ les. Before deleting anything o of your computer, you must “ nd out its current condition. To check the available space on the hard drive, just click on the start menuthen click on ComputerŽ and once the window populates showing the available drives in your computer, then right click on the main drive (usually its the C:Ž drive). Next, a drop down menu appears, click on PropertiesŽ to pull up the next window. Located underneath the GeneralŽ Tab, you will see the information you are looking for in the form of both a chart and information showing you the used space and the available space on your main drive. Below are a few scenarios in which you usually hate to delete certain things: 1. Lets say you have waited patiently for the newest version of your favorite PC game to come out and today is the day! You go to start your download and then BOOMƒ a brick wall! You receive a noti“ cation saying that you do not have enough available space left on your hard drive for this download. What do you do? First look and see how much space is available and how much you will have to get rid of in order to “ nish your download. en once you are ready open your Start Menu and click Control Panel. Once the Control Panel is open, click on Programs & Features.Ž Once your program list pops up, be sure to read through the entire list before selecting which ones to delete … such as unwanted toolbars, games, or even old camera or printer software to devices you no longer have or use. ese are usually programs that you know you personally added and no longer need. en once you are done you now have the available space to download your new game. 2. Uh oh! Today you found out that persistent pop up you have been getting for the past 30 days was actually informing you that your Antivirus is expiring today. Before you can install the new version, you must “ rst delete the old one along with any other antivirus that you may still have on the computer. You can also do this by going into the Programs & FeaturesŽ list and uninstalling them. One thing to always remember is, if you have more than one antivirus at a time, they tend to con” ict with each other causing them to not work properly. If you are not really sure what you should or should not delete, check it out “ rst. If you can, pull up a Google page on the internet and ask if you can delete a speci“ c program. Or if you prefer you can always call your local trusted computer repair shop and ask a quali“ ed technician. e important thing to remember is deleting programs and deleting “ les are two di erent things. When it comes to deleting “ les you should be extra careful not to delete important system “ les as well as any temporary internet “ les, if you feel that your computer may be infected with a virus. e reason … certain viruses have the capability of hiding important system “ les inside the temporary internet “ les folder, in hopes that if deleted they can cause further havoc on your computer.

We could not have done it without the help of so many people and for that we will be forever grateful. We raised over $3,800.00 for a very worthy cause.

With Sincere Gratitude, e Corbitt Family Water Boards Cuts continued from page 1A resources toward water resource management. is year we are collectively devoting almost $1 billion to this goal. Our projects are as diverse and vital as the restoration projects in the Econ“ na Springs basin (NWFWMD), the replacement of ine cient irrigation measures and fertilizer applications in the Santa Fe River basin (SRWMD), pilot testing projects to recharge the Floridan aquifer (SJRWMD), expanding dispersed water storage contracts (SFWMD), and expanding the use of reclaimed water to o set and reduce groundwater impacts (SWFWMD). In South Florida, SFWMD is moving aggressively ahead with the Governors historic $880 million plan for restoring water quality in the Everglades, supported by $87.6 million in this years budget. SFWMDs budget also includes millions to support its continued commitment to the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan by moving major projects ahead to restore this national treasure. With these and other water management projects on the planning horizon throughout the state, we were pleased that the Legislature lifted our revenue caps, and we appreciated Governor Scotts leadership in making the change. is will allow our budgets to grow as Floridas economy grows„ rather than increasing the burden on current taxpayers. Further, each of the districts has available cash fund balances, accumulated during the height of Floridas growth, that are being directed toward these priority projects. Each of our Governing Boards has worked closely with sta and executive managers to develop annual budgets that ful“ ll our mission responsibilities while, at the same time, streamline the size of government. Together we are “ rmly committed to ensuring a high level of service and meeting taxpayer expectations. We welcome your ongoing interest in operations at the “ ve districts and would be pleased to meet with you or invite you for a visit.

Quincey, Jr. Suwannee River Water Management District Lad Daniels St. Johns River Water Management District H. Paul Senft, Jr. Southwest Florida Water Management District Joe Collins South Florida Water Management District Are We Prepared?By Lauren Bartholemy Shark Correspondent, Cedar Key School e President of the United States is a man (or, someday, a woman) who leads our country, and is able to decide the fate of our country. e decision of who will be our president has been in the hands of the generations before mine, but as the voting age nears us, will we be prepared to make that decision? With this question in mind, I ventured out to discover how well the students at Cedar Key High School understood the process of the elections, and what was happening in the election this year. Recently, both parties have held their national conventions. e National Conventions are the two separate conventions held to nominate the republican and democratic candidates. Delegates vote for the candidate according to the voting polls of the nation. With this recent event I thought that this would be an easy question for students to answer, but only one out of three actually knew the answer. Molly Gordon, 17-year-old Senior claimed, I dont know what they are, but I have heard of them because I hear my grandma griping about them, but its not important to me.Ž High School students, just years away from voting themselves, have no concern, and no grasp on the voting process or the presidential candidates. Students do not understand the di erence between a liberal and conservative, saying things such as, Conservatives are people who save resources,Ž or that a liberal is someone who just wants to give for free.Ž Seeing that these students have no back ground for politics is a scary thing. ese students are supposed to be voting in a few years, yet have no idea how to decide which candidate they would like. Students hear news about the president every day, but pay no heed to the matter, because according to Molly Gordon that it doesnt really matter right now.Ž How can we change this view on the presidential elections? Students need to know that choosing our countrys leader is a large, daunting role. Who runs our nation has control of our economy, plays in our education systems, and can declare war? We need to have the ability to choose the person who is willing to work for us, and not against us. Without knowledge of what we are voting for, or even how we know who to vote for, we fall short in the ability to choose the best. Our education system o ers 7th grade civics, and Economics/Government, here at Cedar Key School, but that is only two out of many. If teachers, the best would be history or English, could assign papers, or research about the government and politics to students as a segment in their curriculum, we would have the necessary knowledge to choose the future for our country e ectively. Students, this is a perfect time to learn about our countrys presidential election, through the news, websites, and parents. is choice is up to us in a few short years; to determine the best candidate to run our country, lets choose the best.

Boxes of reading and math materials? And the guests? A group of dedicated ladies and gentlemen without whom Williston Elementary School would have less than half its enrollmentƒthe WES bus drivers! What was the special occasion? Recently principal Marla Hiers and assistant principal Melissa Lewis hosted a Yellow Dog ChatŽ in the schools Wildcat Caf for the drivers (after their morning run, of course) who transport the majority of their schools students. Of course, volunteer Peggy Brooks had decorated the sta dining room for us,Ž said Hiers. We wanted to do this so our drivers would have a chance to give us their inputƒshare with us how we can support them being the best drivers they can be.Ž As the drivers left, Hiers and Lewis gave them a box for each ones bus in which were reading and math materials.  is is yet another opportunity we can provide our students to have access to read when they have a chanceƒto solve some word math problems when they have a chance,Ž said Hiers. We feel it could also cut down on bus referrals because the riders would be engaged in reading or math.Ž I introduced the materials to my riders,Ž said long-time driver Virginia Carnegie Floyd. Well see if theyll use them. I certainly see them reading the AR [Accelerated Reading Program] books they have in their book bags.Ž We feel everyone at WES has an important role to play in the education of our students,Ž said Hiers. Our drivers are the ones who bring them to us each morning and return them to their parents each afternoon. We hope they know how much we appreciate them.Ž Meeting information for parents who did not attend our meeting earlier in the year. is information is very important for parents to know and understand, because you are a crucial element in your childs educational success We look forward to seeing you at our next SAC/Family Learning Night on ursday, October 11, 2012. A free book and a free Florida Gators shirt will be given to each child in attendance. As incentive for parents to attend, any class that has a parent in attendance at the SAC meeting, will be awarded a pajama day on the Friday the week following the SAC meeting. In December, a pizza party will be awarded to the class with the most parent participation at SAC meetings from September-December! Will your childs class be wearing pajamas?

Log Cabin Quilters Southwest Florida Water Management District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts on District land this fall and winter to help reduce the wild hog population. Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, prospective hunters can purchase permits for these hunts on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org/. Permits will be available on a “ rst-come, “ rst-served basis through 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, or until they are sold out. e cost is $75 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed “ eld. ey also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. e District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the hunts will be held: Alston Tract at Upper Hillsborough Preserve Pasco County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts) Flying Eagle Nature Center Citrus County Nov. 23-25 Dec. 14-16 (day hunts) Hampton Tract and Closed-Areas Tracts at Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve Polk County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts) Coker Prairie Tract at Edward Chance Reserve Manatee County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts) Little Manatee River Southfork Tract Manatee County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts) Conner Preserve Pasco County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts) Lower Hillsborough River Wilderness Preserve Hillsborough County Jan. 22-24 (night hunts) Starkey Wilderness Preserve Pasco County Jan. 8-10 (night hunts) Deer Prairie Creek Preserve and South Schewe Tract Dec. 11-13 March 19-21 (night hunts) Deep Creek Preserve DeSoto County Nov. 27-29 (day hunts) Hlpata Tastanaki PreserveDistrict to Hold Hog Hunts, Permits Will Be Available Online Marion County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts) e District-managed properties will be temporarily closed to the public during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. In addition to obtaining a permit online, maps and hunting rules of the areas where the hunts will take place are available on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org/. is is the “ fth consecutive year for the hunts. Last years hunts removed 270 hogs from four di erent tracts of land throughout the District.

Led by Lieutenant Todd Dunn, the unit achieved this status in July and was formally recognized by the Navy League and USNSCC leadership at the ceremony. LT Dunn said, I am extremely proud of this group of cadets and what they accomplished. ey are here at an exciting time in the history of our unit.Ž Distinguished guests included Lieutenant Commander Myron Wambold, NSCC who established Manatee Division six years ago, Lieutenant Linda Jones Commander of US Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 15-01, Mr. Bob Hursher from Fleet Reserve 186, CDR Tony Almon a retired Navy SEAL and several USNSCC leaders from other Florida units. Executive Petty O cer BM1 Michael Greene spoke about the partnership between the Division and USCG Station Yankeetown where the cadets drill. BM1 Greenes sta s often provide hands-on training to the cadets and kindly provided boat and station tours to guests who attended the event. Lieutenant Commander Gail Ryan, Regional Director for Region 6-1 the USNSCC, enthralled the audience of about 100 guests recounting how little by little this unit, in the middle of nowhereŽ, grew into a sizable and successful group of dedicated cadets and sta Central Florida Region President Chris Paddock spoke passionately about the mission of his organization and the importance of its role in the lives of the young sea cadets. He recollected how LT Dunn expressed a great desire a few years back to partner with the Tampa Bay Council to make the Yankeetown unit the best it could be. e goal has been reached and the two men shared a handshake as Chris presented a letter from Florida State President Skip Witunski. At the conclusion of the ceremony, Executive O cer LTJG Pusey commanded the cadets to set the watch,Ž a Navy tradition that is the “ rst o cial act of a new command. e month of September was special for Manatee Division as it is National Sea Cadet Month, the 50th anniversary of the Naval Sea Cadet Corps, and LT Dunns third anniversary as Commanding O cer.

But service dogs for mental health disorders are not covered. VA said there is not enough scienti“ c evidence on the e ectiveness of dogs to treat and heal PTSD to provide them with bene“ ts coverage.Ž e VA study was mandated by the 2010 Defense Authorization Act. At least $2 million was included in the 2010 Omnibus Appropriations Act for programs related to veterans service dogs with the PTSD initiative being supported by some of that funding. ere is a temporary hold on new pairings of veterans with service dogs but the study will continue with existing pairs of veteran and service dog. Vietnam veteran Wyman Helms credits Diva, a Belgian Malinois he received from Guardian Angels through the VA program, with saving his life by stopping the nightmares and lowering the stress levels. Helms said they are stupid to stop this program. Other comments to the article also remark that the dogs have helped many veterans and there should be a revamping of the training program and facilities, not a stopping of the pairing of dogs to veterans.VA Service Dog Program to Help PTSD Vets Now on Hold e Nuclear Regulatory Commission is seeking public comment on draft revisions to its guidance document for nuclear power plant licensees to determine their decommissioning funding requirements. e draft guidance, NUREG-1307, Revision 15, Report on Waste Burial Charges … Changes in Decommissioning Waste Disposal Costs at Low-Level Waste Burial Facilities,Ž is updated every two years to aid licensees in submitting their biennial reports to NRC on minimum decommissioning funding assurance. e next reports are due by March 31, 2013, to cover funding assurance as of the end of this year. Revision 15 includes a reassessment of low-level waste disposal costs that would result in an increase in the amount of decommissioning funds required. is is the “ rst revision of NUREG-1307 to be issued for public comment. Earlier this year, the Commission directed the sta to seek public comment on future revisions consistent with the agencys opennessŽ principle of good regulation. e proposed changes were presented publicly in March 2011 at a workshop on decommissioning funding. Revision 15 is available through the NRCs Adams document database (ML12257A191). A notice about the revision was published today in the Federal Register Comments will be accepted through Oct. 22 and may be submitted to through the federal rulemaking website at: www.regulations.gov using Docket ID NRC-2010-0362; by mail to Cindy Bladey, Chief, Rules, Announcements and Directives Branch (RADB), O ce of Administration, Mail Stop: TWB05-B01M, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001; or by fax to RADB at 301-492-3446.

I wasnt scheduled to teach, but I always like to tousle a few mop tops before the service. Just as I arrived, a visitor came through the back door, looking around, sort of wary, like they tend to be. Eager to put him at ease I stuck out a hand and said cheerfully, Good morning, my names Guy.Ž Suddenly he threw back against the wall in a fright. His eye balls popped out on stems like an old craw“ sh. I didnt realize it, but because of my southern drawl he thought Id said, Good morning, my names GOD!Ž What?Ž he gasped and swallowed hard. Im Guy,Ž I repeated, Im glad you came today.Ž A bead of sweat popped up on his forehead. Ya ya ya youre God?Ž he gulped. I guess he was hoping for someone a little more impressive. Either way, his eyes were sure bugging. Mine were too when once I found out what he thought Id said! After we got all that straightened out, I skedaddled over to join the praise team in the prayer room. Id had my “ ll of meeting and greeting for one day. I sat down and began to rattle o my prayers silently to the Lord, going through my regular list like a kid in Santas lap. When I got to the part about how I wanted Him to use me, a still small voice rose up in me and asked, Well, have you “ gured it out yet? Are you Guy? Or are you God?Ž I was nearly ” oored. Surely you know my heart Lord,Ž I pleaded. I prayed, but I couldnt get it o my mind. Had I let the cares of this life inch me back into a place where I am more concerned with building my own kingdom than His? I began to examine myself and I asked God to forgive me if Id lost my focus. As we came out to play the “ rst song I couldnt believe my eyes. e “ rst song on the list was entitled You Are GodŽ. I just laughed and whispered, You sure are!Ž I sang that song with a little extra conviction that morning. e Lord sure has a way of driving His points across. Its not that we necessarily mean to, but its awful easy to lose focus nowadays. We live in such a fast food society. Have it your way! Just do it! No interest, no payments until youre in over your head! Its like were constantly being bombarded by the devils own 24hr shopping infomercial. Get your own genuine imitation faux costume jewelry ball and chain now, before theyre gone!Ž If were not careful we can become so mesmerized by the worlds sales pitch we never take the time to cultivate the eternal pearl of a great price that God wants to grow within us. Eventually we “ nd ourselves cluttered, unful“ lled, and unproductive, like fools chasing a vapor. In other words, if God is your co-pilot, I would seriously suggest switching seats! God is the giver of every good and perfect gift. He wants so desperately for His children to enjoy them. e 28th Chapter of Deuteronomy lists many of the blessings He promises will overtake us if we listen and obey Him. But He said overtakeŽ. How can something overtake you if you are chasing it? Jesus taught, (But more than anything else, put Gods work “ rst and do what he wants. en the other things will be yours as well. Matthew 6:33 CEV). Gods promises are yes and amen for those who keep their eye on the prize, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Only in seeking the Lord and His will for our lives will we “ nd the true ful“ llment that our hearts are longing for. In chasing the blessing instead of the Blesser we miss our whole purpose of our life, and the best gift of all, a real relationship with Jesus. Dont you dare trade your birthright for a bowl of soup like Esau. Dont walk away sad like the rich young ruler. But anywayFor meet and greet purposes, I think Ill change my name to Purvis. I dont need any more confusion in my life.-Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.
