At 2:45 PM on ursday September 27 o cers from the Williston Police Department were in the process of destroying evidence pursuant to a court order when the o cers heard an animal whimpering. Following the cries, the o cers discovered that the sounds were coming from under the surface of the ground. e o cers carefully started digging and about six inches down they found a male puppy about 10 days old. e puppies eyes had not opened yet and he was carefully removed from his would-be grave and rushed to the Levy Animal Clinic in a police car for treatment. Since the rescue the puppy has been adopted by a Vet Tech at Levy Animal Clinic and has been named Tucker.Ž Tuckers eyes have now opened and he is progressing well and seems to have no ill e ects from the cruelty he was subjected to. is case is actively being investigated and all leads are being followed up on. e abuse of Tucker has received international attention, and as a result caring people from all over the United States have contributed $2,700.00 to be used as a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the cowardly culprits involved. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Williston Police Department at 352/528-4991. Puppy Buried Alive in Williston Has a Home, Big Reward O ered for InformationAccording to the Defense Departments inspector general, many military installations across the globe lack o ces where troops can register to vote and obtain absentee ballots. Of the 229 voting assistance o ces investigators were only able to reach 114 of them and that is just 50 percent. According to the 2009 Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act, all military installations are required to have the voting assistance o ces to aid the enlisted to vote. House Republicans have accused the Obama White House of moving too slowly to implement the law. Under the Act the states are also required to mail absentee ballots to service members at least 45 days before an election. It is now 35 days before the November 6 General election and the Military Voter Protection Project released a report last month noting a low number of absentee ballot requests in swing states. e Defense Departments inspector general pointed out that Congress did not provide additional funds to pay for the voting assistance o ces which could cost the military over $15 million a year. e inspector general also noted that 18 to 25-year-old population which comprises the major age group of enlisted may be better reached through the social media channels. Last month, the Defense Department noted that the social media avenues are part of the program and registering to vote is easier than ever for soldiers. As part of the Military Voter Protection (MVP) Projects 2012 Heroes Vote Initiative, 15 states were named as All-Star states for their extraordinary e orts. On that list is Florida.  ese states are led by a tremendous group of state and local election o cials who have made military voters a priority in elections. ey have provided the gold standard of leadership in the “ ght to promote and protect the voting rights of our heroes,Ž said Eric Eversole, founder and executive director of the MVP Project. We still have a long way to go, but these states are providing the example for other states to follow.Ž e All-Star states include: Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and West Virginia. To our enlisted readers: You can go to the following websites to register or request an absentee ballot: e government site is: FVAP. gov or the Military Voter Protection Project site at: mvpproject.org/ Florida Makes Sure Soldiers Can Vote By Kathy HilliardEditor e U. S. Supreme Court has opened wide the door for the Virginia Christian college, Liberty University, and the Liberty Counsel team to continue “ ghting to stop Obamacare from ignoring the deeply-held beliefs of Christians all over America with its mandate to take taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions. With the Supreme Court now open for its new term, the Court has directed the federal government to respond to Liberty Counsels Petition for Rehearing on the Liberty Univ., Inc. v Geithner case within 30 days. Liberty Counsel “ led the petition on behalf of Liberty University and two private individuals. An appeals court in Richmond, Virginia, ruled that the Anti-Injunction Act (AIA) barred the court from addressing the merits in Liberty Univ., Inc. v. Geithner, which challenged the individual mandate (Section 1501) and the employer insurance mandate (Section 1513) of ObamaCare. Liberty Counsel has been “ ghting the employer mandate since the law was enacted and has challenged on other constitutional grounds. e Anti-Injunction Act blocks any challenge to a "tax" before a taxpayer actually pays it. In this particular case, the tax (as it was also called by the recent Supreme Court ruling authored by Chief Justice John Roberts) refers to the penalties associated with failing to obtain health insurance. e Supreme Court ruled in June that the AntiInjunction Act did not serve as a barrier to lawsuits challenging the health care law. On that basis, Liberty University immediately petitioned the court to allow it to renew its original case. e Supreme Court now recognizes the university's renewed request and gave the administration 30 days to respond to the request. From that action it appears the justices are taking the Liberty request seriously. In addition to the constitutional arguments that Congress lacked authority to pass the law, the suit also raised the Free Exercise of Religion claim because of the forced abortion funding. Liberty Counsel asked the Court to grant the Petition (because Liberty University prevailed on the AIA claim), vacate the ruling of the Court of Appeals, and remand (send back) the case to the Court of Appeals to consider the Free Exercise claim and the employer mandate, neither of which were decided by the High Court. ObamaCare is the biggest funding of abortion in American history,Ž said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law. Under the Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate, ObamaCare will for the “ rst time require employers and individuals to directly fund abortion.  is abortion mandate collides with religious freedom and the rights of conscience,Ž Staver said. e High Court has directed the federal government to respond to the Petition for Rehearing within thirty days, after which it will issue its ruling on the Petition. I am very pleased with the Courts decision today,Ž Staver concluded. — information submitted in part by the Liberty CounselSupreme Court Tells Government to Respond to Petition for Rehearing Against ObamacareLiberty Counsel ghts to stop taxpayer-funded abortions By Kathy HilliardEditorOn February 4, 1989 Congress enacted the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Noti“ cation Act or WARN Act. e WARN Act protects workers, their families, and communities by requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide noti“ cation 60 calendar days in advance of plant closings and mass layo s. In 2007, Democrats led by Sherrod Brown, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton proposed the Forewarn Act, which would have strengthened the WARN Act by expanding the number of companies under the laws jurisdiction and requiring 90 days notice. e bill did not pass. But now, the president not only opposes the principles underlying legislation he himself supported, he opposes the WARN Act completely. In January, due to sequestration rules put in place if Congress does not pass a budget, Lockheed Martin, BAE Systems and EADS North America, large companies supplying defense products, will be looking down the barrel of a loaded “ scal cli with massive layo s in the chamber. So, according to the WARN Act, they must notify their employees of the impending explosion of job losses. But this would be most untimely to President Obamas re-election campaign as the notices will arrive to the future unemployed just before the November 6 General Election. Not to do so, would be illegal. Lockheed Martin had already advised that they were sending out the memos due to concern over lawsuits for not following the law. e White House sent memos to the defense companies urging them not to obey the law but to hold o on issuing the notices due to the possibility that sequestration may be averted. Below is that memo.Maybe the Rules Dont Apply to the Obama White House continued on page 3A

Investigators with e Florida Department of Law Enforcements Orlando Regional Operations Center say dozens of young females may have been victimized by Justin Slavinski, 32. FDLEs Cyber Crime Task Force arrested Slavinski ursday after receiving information from the Georgetown County Sheri s O ce in South Carolina regarding active warrants. e South Carolina warrants were for soliciting a minor via the internet to engage in sexual activity, transmission of materials harmful to a minor and lewd and lascivious behavior. Agents subsequently executed a search warrant at 1360 Ravida Woods Drive, Apopka, Fla. A preliminary forensic examination of Slavinskis computer revealed numerous photographs depicting child pornography. Agents have developed information that Slavinski has been in contact with as many as 40 young females throughout Florida over the internet. FDLE is conducting an investigation to see if any of these girls are the victims of a crime. Additional charges are anticipated. Cases of this nature are always disturbing, but I “ nd this one particularly heinous,Ž said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. I urge anyone with information about this investigation to contact FDLE Orlando Regional Operations Center.Ž If you have more information about this crime, contact 800-226-8521.

FY2012-13 will run from Oct. 1, 2012, through Sept. 30, 2013. With taxable property values declining by 2.9 percent, this rate will result in a $3 million reduction in ad valorem property tax revenue. e total FY2012-13 budget for the District is $159.5 million, 2.5 percent higher than the adopted budget for FY2011-12, which was $155.5 million. e $3.9 million increase in the budget is primarily due to additional funding requests from local governments for water resources projects. e increase is funded from additional balances available from prior years due to the cancellation of projects and projects completed under budget. e budget includes $83.2 million for capital/infrastructure and other District projects. e Districts funds leveraged with its partners will result in a total investment of more than $132 million for water resource management projects bene“ tting the region. Over the long term, the District has identi“ ed adequate “ scal resources to address the core mission areas of responsibility for water supply, water quality, ” ood protection and ” oodplain management, and natural systems. e Districts “ scal resources supplemented with project reserves will adequately maintain a healthy investment in the economy and water resources during the next “ ve to 10 years. Mitchs Gold & Diamonds Port Authority Board Discusses Recent Lawsuit; Sets Future Meeting is morning the Citrus County Port Authority Board discussed the recent lawsuit that was served to both the Port Authority Board and Martin Associates, the “ rm who was chosen by the Authority to conduct the feasibility study for Port Citrus. Before the discussion, Port Director Brad orpe talked about the upcoming Ports Council meeting set for October 8-9 in Orlando, and the upcoming CEO Freight and Trade Summit on October 15-17 also being held in Orlando. e Authority unanimously approved the allocation of $250 from the Port Budget for expenditures for the CEO Freight and Trade Summit asked for by the Florida Ports Council so all 15 Florida Ports could attend. During the Port Attorney report, Port Attorney Richard Wesch talked about events that occurred during the Port negotiating team meeting back on September 17. Wesch stated the team was ready to meet with Martin Associates in an open forum at the Lecanto Government Building. But instead, because of a lawsuit that was served the previous Friday to Martin Associates, the “ rm decided to put the negotiating meeting on hold to confer with corporate council. Mr. Wesch talked about the email and phone conversation he had with John Martin from Martin Associates. Mr. Wesch said he, as well as the rest of the negotiating team, understood Martins position to not move forward until the litigation was resolved. Robert A. Schweickert Jr. “ led the suit against Martin Associates and the Port Authority Board, alleging both violated the Sunshine Law during the ranking process back in April, in which Port Authority Board members heard public presentations from six port developers and ranked them individually to develop a future feasibility study for Port Citrus. Mr. Wesch explained the Attorney/Client session to the Authority and the public regarding how the next Port Authority meeting will be conducted. He stated the Authority will open the public meeting and then under Florida Statute 286.011, the Authority will then conduct an Attorney/Client Session with the Authoritys outside legal counsel. After the closed door session, the Port Authority Board would then allow the public back into the meeting and discuss publically what has been decided in reference to the litigation. e Port Authority Board all understood this process of how the future meeting would be conducted and set the next Port Authority Board meeting for Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at 10am at the Citrus County Courthouse in Inverness. — submitted by Lindsay Ubinas, Public Information O cer Rules Don’t Apply continued from page 1A e O ce of Management and Budget is saying that the contracting agencies dont have to worry about litigation because the OMB could cover any potential costs or employee compensation that would follow. How? How else does government pay for things … with American taxpayer dollars. According to the OMB guidance issued by Daniel Werfel, controller of the O ce of Federal Financial Management, and Joseph Jordan, the Administrator for Federal Procurement Policy, if an agency terminates or modi“ es a contract, and the contractor must close a plant or lay o workers en masse, the company could treat employee compensation costs for WARN Act liability, attorneys fees and other litigation costs as allowable costs to be covered by the contracting agencyŽ„so long as the contractor has followed the course of action consistent with the Labor Departments guidance. e legal fees would be covered regardless of the outcome of the litigation, according to the OMB spokesmen. e guidance rules … dont send out WARN notices. So on Monday Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors backed down from issuing layo notices to employees after the Obama administration promised to pick up the tab for severance costs resulting from sequestration. But outraged Republicans have accused the administration of bending the law to hide job losses from the public. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) called the administrations actions illegal and said he would work to prevent taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for severance. I will do everything in my power to make sure not one taxpayer dollar is spent reimbursing companies for failure to comply with WARN Act,Ž said Graham. At stake is the fact that sequestration would cut $500 billion from the defense budget. at is the American defense budget. So, if the Obama Administration believes the WARN Act does not apply to the sequestration case involving the American defense budget, why will the possible resulting litigation be paid for with American taxpayer dollars?

The Levy County Journal4AOctober 4, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Capital Gains Taxes Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateOne of the many false talking points of the Obama administration is that a rich man like Warren Bu ett should not be paying a lower tax rate than his secretary. But anyone whose earnings come from capital gains usually pays a lower tax rate. How are capital gains di erent from ordinary income? Ordinary income is usually guaranteed. If you work a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to the pay that you were o ered when you took the job. Capital gains involve risk. ey are not guaranteed. You can invest your money and lose it all. Moreover, the year when you receive capital gains may not be the same as the years when they were earned. Suppose I spend ten years writing a book, making not one cent from it in all that time. en, in the tenth year, when the book is “ nished, I may sell it to a publisher who pays me $100,000 in advance royalties. Am I the same as someone who has a salary of $100,000 that year? Or am I earning $10,000 a year for ten years work? It so happens that the government will tax me the same as someone who earns $100,000 that year, because my decade of work on the book cannot be documented. But the point here is that it is really a capital gain, and it illustrates the di erence between a capital gain and ordinary income. en there is the risk factor. ere is no guarantee to me that a publisher will actually accept the book that I have worked on for ten years -and there is no guarantee to the publisher that the public will buy enough copies of the book to repay whatever I might be paid when the contract is signed. Even the $10,000 a year -which is less than anyone can earn on an entry level job -is not guaranteed. If my years of work produced an unpublished manuscript, I would not even have been among the “ rst thousand writers who met this fate. Very similar principles apply to businesses. We pay attention to businesses after they have succeeded. But most new businesses do not succeed. Even those businesses that eventually turn out to be enormously successful may go through years of losing money before they have their “ rst year of earning a pro“ t. Amazon.com spent years losing money before turning a pro“ t for the “ rst time in 2001. McDonalds teetered on the edge of bankruptcy more than once in its early years. Desperate expedients were resorted to by the people who ran McDonalds, in order to just keep their noses above the water, while hoping for better days. At one time, you could have bought half interest in McDonalds for $25,000 -and there were no takers. Anyone who would have risked $25,000 at that time would be a billionaire today. But there was no guarantee at the time that they wouldnt be just throwing 25 grand down a rat hole. Where a capital gain can be documented -when a builder spends ten years creating a housing development, for example -then whatever that builder earns in the tenth year is a capital gain, not ordinary income. ere is no guarantee in advance that the builder will ever recover his expenses, much less make a pro“ t. ere are whole industries where no one can expect to make a pro“ t the “ rst year -publishing a newspaper for example. Virtually every major American airline has lost money in some years, and some of the biggest and most famous airlines have ended up going bankrupt. If a country wants investors to invest, it cannot tax their resulting capital gains the same as the incomes of people whose incomes were guaranteed in advance when they took the job. It is not just a question of fairnessŽ to investors. Ultimately, it is investors who guarantee other peoples incomes in a market economy, even though the investors own incomes are by no means guaranteed. Reducing investors incentives to take risks is reducing the jobs their investments are likely to create. Business income is di erent from employees income in another way. e pro“ t that a business makes is “ rst taxed as pro“ t and the remainder is then taxed again as the incomes of people who receive dividends. e biggest losers from politicians who jack up tax rates are likely to be people who are looking for jobs that will not be there, because investments will not be there to create the jobs. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMWho Is White House Visitor Hisham Altalib? OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateOn Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obamas O ce of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House o cials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. e White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.based Altalib -which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhoods American advance team -has received no attention until now. So, who is Hisham Yahya Altalib? What is his agenda? And why exactly did the Obama administration conduct domestic faith-basedŽ outreach with this Muslim Brotherhood “ gure in Virginia, who just happens to be 1) tied to bloody jihad and 2) a major contributor to the left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights, the group of jihadi-sympathizing lawyers who helped spring suspected Benghazi terror plotter Abu Su“ an bin Qumu from Gitmo? Altalib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identi“ ed by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative before he moved to America in the 1970s to earn an advanced electrical engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana. By his own account, Altalib soon became active in Islamic work in North America, which continues to this day.Ž He was the “ rst full-time director of the Leadership Training Department of the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA)Ž -a longtime Muslim Brotherhood front group whose explicit goal is to conquerŽ America through Islamic propagandizing. Altalib is also a founding member of the SAAR Foundation and the International Institute of Islamic ought (IIIT). Last year, his online biography proudly notes, he was awarded the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Community Service Award.Ž e Saudi-subsidized ISNA is regarded as the primary U.S. umbrella group for Muslim Brotherhood fronts and was named speci“ cally by the global MB godfathers as a key player in their Grand JihadŽ strategy of in“ ltration from within. SAAR was founded in Herndon, Va., in 1983 as part of a radical Islamic charity front for Saudi “ nanciers called the SAFA Group. e feds raided SAARs o ces in 2002 as part of Operation Green Quest. Investigators con“ scated 500 boxes and seven trucks worth of documents illuminating the networks terror ties to the Al Taqwa Bank (a Swiss-based Muslim bank suspected of funding the 9/11 plot) and the Muslim Brotherhood. Altalib worked for one of Al Taqwa Banks main owners, Youssef Nada. Altalibs more prominent Muslim Brotherhood partner, Jamal Barzinji (one of the champions of the Ground Zero mosque), also worked for Nada.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Letter to the EditorDear Editor: Attached is a compilation of excerpts from the 2012 Republican National Platform. I believe it will be informative to the reader to see what they intend to implement upon the coming presidential election provided Governor Mitt Romney wins. Everything is word for word from their platform with the exception of what I put in italics concerning Global Warming. I suspect the public is tired of the talking points presented by either party or especially the negative and even distortions which are so ” agrant this political season. It might be a breath of fresh air provided the reader will not assume that I am lyingŽ to get my point across. Everything is veri“ able from their website. It is what the RNC believe is the right direction for our Country to travel. e Republican Platform is 62 pages in length. It should be obvious that I picked and chose what is interesting to me as a Christian and a Citizen of this wonderful country, the United States of America. ank you for giving consideration to this article.

You might be a home user who all of a sudden cant pay bills online, look for a job or use your computer to Skype family and friends who live miles away; or are a business person who cant work without the computer because its infected! If only there were ways to prevent down time by recognizing the symptoms of an infected computer before it totally stops working? Even though each virus is di erent and identifying them can be di cult, there are signs that would help you notice that your computer may be in need of a good cleaning. e faster you recognize the signs, the quicker you will catch the virus, resulting in the least amount of damage to your computer. When a computer becomes infected, you might notice it boots up more slowly, your pages might freeze up as they load, or for more serious infections your computer system might crash, resulting in a blue or black screen with error messages. Another indication is if your icons are missing on your desktop; you receive error messages stating a program “ le is missing, you are infected,Ž or tell you to buy their program to “ x things. When you receive such a message on your screen, you should NEVER click on the message, even to close it. Use your task manager to end the program. Right click on the navigation bar at the bottom of your screen, select Task Manager and go to the application tab. e program running the virus message is usually “ rst in the list. Select it and then click on end taskŽ at the bottom of that window, which should close that pop up message. If you receive a pop up claiming to be an Antivirus or a Windows feature informing you of infections or other security issues and wish to identify if it is legitimate (and not a Virus in hiding) you can GoogleŽ it. Please note, however, that pop ups are also used by your operating system to notify you about your computer. If you are not sure before you click on it, look it up. One of the most useful tools for keeping your computer more secure is ensuring you have a reputable, active Antivirus. Even though no antivirus prevents 100% of viruses, Trojans, malware and spyware from getting in, they are e ective in reducing the amount of possible threats, depending, of course, on the quality of the antivirus. Viruses can be very sneaky and deceptive, and can corrupt “ les, misleading you into thinking your datas gone, or can even delete data. It can use your email to spam your email contacts, can cause your programs to disappear from your start menu or give you a message that you might have hard drive failure. Some malware can even disable antivirus programs to keep them from isolating and removing the virus. However, if you think your computer may be infected, dont panic. You dont need to go right out and buy a new computer. If you are seeing some of these signs, avoid typing personal information and immediately run your antivirus program. If this is ine ective, it may take the expertise of your local trusted computer repair technician to remove it.

Opposition to sequester is bipartisan; even the current Secretary of Defense has said the cuts will be devastatingŽ to Americas military. Yet the current President supported sequestration, signed it into law, and has threatened to veto Republican e orts to prevent it. If he allows an additional half trillion dollars to be cut from the defense budget, America will be left with the smallest ground force since 1940, the smallest number of ships since 1915, and the smallest Air Force in its history-at a time when our Nation faces a growing range of threats to our national security and a struggling economy that can ill a ord to lose 1.5 million defense-related jobs.

Implementation of the plan last summer was expected to create signi“ cant ecological, economic and social bene“ ts for Florida. More than 7,500 anglers provided input, as did a technical assistance group representing “ shing-related businesses, university experts, professional anglers, outdoor media and “ shing guides. e goal of the plan is to ensure Florida is the Black Bass Fishing Capital of the World by: 1. Ensuring healthy lakes and rivers to bene“ t many species of “ sh and wildlife, as well as trophy bass “ sheries. 2. Strengthening local economies by documenting and increasing economic bene“ ts derived from bass “ shing, which already provides more than 14 million days of quality outdoor recreation for bass anglers and generates an economic impact of $1.25 billion. 3. Attracting events such as national professional bass “ shing tournaments, which have huge economic impacts, to smaller towns and cities as a result of Floridas enhanced reputation. So, how much progress was made to ful“ ll the goals of the BBMP during the “ rst year? Here is a partial list of accomplishments. Bass genetics … e FWC stopped state-owned hatcheries from stocking or relocating bass outside their native range. Genetic testing will help ensure pure Florida populations will be maintained. Hydrilla management … e FWC Invasive Plant Management Section implemented an agency position statement to guide the agency in managing hydrilla using a risk-based approach that now incorporates public input into hydrilla management plans. Bass tournaments … Tournament permits annually allow clubs and organizations to possess bass outside legal size limits with the condition that all bass (even those that could normally be harvested) must be released. e FWC is strengthening partnerships with bass “ shing organizations and local communities to encourage large tournaments to come to Florida and to enhance facilities. Work Cooperation … Another objective was to work cooperatively with other agencies to emphasize recreational “ sheries. At Lake Okeechobee the cooperative e orts of local citizens groups and agencies got the Water Regulation Schedule changed to bene“ t lake ecology. Now outstanding catch rates for bass and crappie are being reported. Fisheries regulations … FWC biologists are seeking to use the least restrictive regulations possible to protect trophy bass, while maintaining a statewide bass “ shery that provides diverse angling opportunities, including controlled harvest and high angler satisfaction. University of Florida human dimensions experts are working to enhance the public input process. Shoal bas s … e BBMP incorporates all “ ve black bass species found in Florida. Shoal bass are a lesser known species that occur in a limited range in the upper Chipola River. Recent research provides a science-informed perspective to assess and manage this species. Results show a robust population of shoal bass. Lake Apopka – To expedite restoration of Lake Apopka, the Florida Legislature appropriated $4.8 million this year. A multi-agency task force identi“ ed “ ve projects to restore this valuable “ shery. In the interim, the FWC continues to stock the lake with non-reproducing sunshine bass to provide a recreational “ shery. Bass stocking … Stocking bass is an e ective tool to create new “ sheries and to re-establish a “ shery after a major “ sh kill. FWC hatchery sta developed a new production technique to spawn bass out of season, so advanced“ ngerlings (4-inch) are ready to stock when more abundant prey are available. Now FWC biologists are conducting a small-lake stocking study to determine survival of advanced“ ngerling bass in 11 lakes throughout Florida. Trophy tagging study … FWC biologists tagged 136 trophy largemouth bass greater than 8 pounds in Floridas public waters, and as reported last month in the Fish Busters Bulletin, results are very informative and will help guide trophy bass management planning in the future. TrophyCatc h … Providing greater opportunities for trophy-size bass and promoting Floridas exceptional largemouth “ shery was an important component of the BBMP. TrophyCatch (TrophyCatchFlorida.com), which launches in October, will help document that Florida is the Bass Fishing Capital of the World,Ž while promoting catch-and-release of trophy bass. Register, legally catch an 8-pound-plus bass, document it according to the rules, and release it in Florida to claim great rewards and valuable prizes. Fellsmere Water Management Area … e Fellsmere project is an example of a new opportunity with a 10,000-acre parcel of land in Indian River County being converted into a reservoir. e FWC provided resources to enhance “ sh and wildlife habitat and to bene“ t “ sh and wildlife populations, anglers and wildlife viewers. High school bass “ shing … An example of current e orts to help recruit future anglers is FWC involvement in laying the groundwork to incorporate bass “ shing as a sanctioned sport in high schools. E-Tournaments … Biologists evaluated an alternative weigh-in procedure to reduce handling stress on bass. Two experimental E-tournaments were evaluated. Fish were weighed or measured on the boat, photographed and then released. E-tournaments are a good choice for bass anglers wanting to hold tournaments during summer or on waters where bass cannot be legally kept. However, no plans to require such tournaments are currently contemplated. Instant licenses are available at MyFWC.com/License or by calling 888-FISHFLORIDA (347-4356).

James Edward Pullen, 76, was reported missing when his boat was found aground at about 6 p.m. Tuesday. e vessel was on a sand bar near the Crystal River Fort Island Trail boat ramp with no one on board. A cell phone and keys were found on the vessel. e boats trolling motor was down. A coordinated search with the Citrus County Sheri s O ce, the U.S. Coast Guard and the FWC was conducted. Pullen was found around 7:30 p.m. by responding units with the Citrus County Sheri s O ce. Preliminary investigation indicates that Pullen had been “ shing and fell out of his boat. e medical examiner will determine the cause of death, FWC investigators said. e investigation by FWC continues. Student OpinionStand By Me: A United Front Against Negativity By Mikayla PopeShark Correspondent"When the night has come, and the land is dark, and the moon is the only light we'll see. No, I won't be afraid. No, I won't be afraid. Just as long as you stand, stand by me." e lyrics to the Ben E. King song Stand By Me is the perfect way to explain the relationship students should have towards one another. e negativity of life can bring anyone down; however, just as long as there's someone to catch us when we fall the hard times will be bearable. Living on the island can easily become paradise, but for the students of Cedar Key School it hasn't always been easy! As a student, there were times when I've felt like staying home to get a break from drama. Teenage years can sometimes seem impossible to make it through, but if kids would set aside their di erences and see past the bad, they would “ nd out going to school will slowly become less of a struggle. I know, easier said than done! But how nice would it be to walk into the hallways and have someone just give you a huge bear hug? It's our responsibility as students in the same high school to be here for one another regardless of drama. We've all grown up together and have the advantage of being "one big family." We are a family, and as family it's time we stood by each other and stop negativity! So, the next time you see someone down consider stopping and asking the following: "Are you okay? How's life going?" Let them know that you are available if they ever need someone to chat with or have a problem they need help with. Maybe school is getting too stressful; help them work on whatever subject you're best at. Positivity can result in more positivity! A good deed never goes unnoticed; that peer will remember your help and you might just make an impact in their lives. It starts with one, so please join me in ending negativity! Stand by me and we can make a di erence in each others lives! Editors Note: We would love to hear from our local youth with their opinions about current events.

In past years the City always waived the connection and sewer development fees for all customers in the project area. Sta now requests permission to waiver the $300 sewer connection fee and $1,596 system development fee to each home/property hookup under the grant. Also to utilize the City sewer development funds to hookup these properties that may be above income or non-residential properties within the service area to gain much needed leverage points.

Mr. Hartzog said there wont be very many water meters. e replacement of the water mains and transite pipe will be bene“ cial to the City. e waiver is for the sewer connection fees. Vice Mayor Barron made a motion to approve the waiver of the sewer connection and sewer development fees for the CDBG grant and utilize some of the sewer development funds to hookup those properties in the subject area that maybe above grant income levels or non-residential properties into the system to gain additional much needed leverage points.

Chief Douglas said the Sheri said if expenditures were taken out of the money before it was dispersed the City would not receive any money. Chief Douglas explained the latest disbursement of $14,000 was before expenses were taken out. Chief Douglas said the money is nice but we are not in it for the money. Commissioners discussed the equitable sharing program and how the money is spent. Chief Douglas said the City cannot dictate what the Sheri s o ce does with their money. Mayor Pomeroy said the City and Sheri s o ce are equal partners on the contract and it makes him ask questions when they spend the money on certain items. Commissioner Cason said he read the agreements and cannot “ nd the Citys percentage anywhere. Mayor Pomeroy said the share is actually 50/50 on the 5th or 6th page of the agreements. Mayor Pomeroy said he previously mentioned pulling out of the drug task force for budgetary concerns so he is still looking at the issue because it will come up for renewal in December.

She said Chief Knowles said he would speak to the County Commission. Vice Mayor Barron said Otter Creek will address the County Commission on September 18th and request they renew the contract for one year. She said it is Chie” ands obligation to be a good neighbor to Otter Creek and if they do not get their contract renewed that the Chie” and Fire Department still provide them “ re service within the municipality itself because they do not have time to do anything else. She asked permission from the Commission to provide service to Otter Creek for the 20122013 year. Commissioner Hudson asked if Chie” and would provide the service anyway if the other department cannot make it. Mayor Pomeroy said the other department would not respond. Mr. Fugate said from a legal standpoint the County has said that they cannot spend county money continued on page 9A

Last year the amount budgeted was $143,000 actual amount received was $141,000 and 2009-2010 budgeted $150,000 and actual was $141,000 so revenues have not increased in the last two budgets.

Chief Harris said the money was in the rollover to pay for the “ re truck before it was bought. Commissioner Hudson questioned what expenses to cut. Mayor Pomeroy said the secretarys position was cut and the Board of Adjustment board was cut. Commissioner Hudson said the City has to have the revenues before the money is spent. Mayor Pomeroy said the Commission can increase the building permit fees. Vice Mayor Barron suggested subcontracting out the inspections. Mayor Pomeroy said he suggested subcontracting inspections two years ago. Vice Mayor Barron said when that was brought up Commissioners were optimistic things would turn around. Commissioner Hudson said the City cannot continue to spend on the building department. Vice Mayor Barron asked Commissioners if they have thought about reducing building and zoning to part time. Mayor Pomeroy said there is only one last thing to cut theres been a lot of cutting so far and he said he does not want to cut someone without them here. Vice Mayor Barron said when there is a turn-over in the police department the Chief should come before the board Mayor Pomeroy agreed said it will be brought before the Commission next time.

We are FINALLY seniors! As a senior, its overwhelming to think about how hard Ive worked towards graduation, and to realize that all of what seemed like pointless information (I mean honestly, when am I ever going to have to graph an equation in the real world?), really paid o and that Im “ nally to this point in my life. Ive really done it. Mrs. Penny Bailey, Cedar Key High Schools business teacher and senior class sponsor, stated in an interview, I have been with this senior class since their “ rst day of high school and I feel like a proud mom to all of them!Ž Mrs. Bailey, who has taught at Cedar Key School for 4 years now, was our very “ rst teacher in high school. What makes the situation even more special is that we were her “ rst class as a teacher. Needless to say, she holds a special place in our hearts, and vice versa. She continued to say,  ey all have a terri“ c future ahead of them and I know they will accomplish great things!Ž No doubt about it, being a senior de“ nitely has its perks; for instance, skipping the underclassmen in the lunch line. No, its not necessary. Yes, we understand that well get food just like everyone else, but you better believe that we will claim seniorityŽ just like every class before us. Also, the feeling of being a senior is amazing! After 13 years of going through the same routine, I never would have thought that being a senior could actually make me feel di erent.Ž When asked if she felt any di erent being a senior, Haley Simpson, a senior and fellow classmate answered with, I do feel di erent-I did a lot of growing up. I have my future all planned out and I know its near!Ž A downside to being a senior is the fact that even though we claim to hate school,Ž its going to be a sad farewell. In my case, Ive gone to Cedar Key School my whole life. Its sad to think about leaving the teachers that have helped me learn to read and classmates Ive grown up with. Haley Simpson also said in her interview, I know for a fact I will miss Cedar Key School, along with everyone in it-I dont want to leave!Ž Mrs. Bailey also added, I am sad to see them go and I am going to miss them. I feel very blessed to have been their class sponsor!Ž When I asked some of my classmates what our goals for the year should be, Ryan Beckham commented with, I think we should do everything we can to be di erent. I want to go out with a BANG!Ž I couldnt have said it better myself. In our e ort to be di erent,Ž we chose Red and Silver as our class colors. Our class ” ower is the Passion Flower which describes us very well. It helps us to stand out! And, traditionally, we had to decide on a class song, and for us, its Little WondersŽ by Rob omas.

Where Are Our Fans?By Molly Gordon, Shark CorrespondentWhere are you on Tuesday and ursday nights when the Cedar Key volleyball players are on the court playing their hearts out for their school and even for their community? e Sharks feed o YOUR support, seeing as our town is so small. Were one big family. So the question is: Where are you when the team needs your cheering and encouraging words to push through the game? Phoebe Cahours, a varsity volleyball player, and participant of several other sports at Cedar Key School mentioned during a game last week: Its sad that we dont have a crowd at any of our games. Its like everyone has given up on us.Ž Its true; the crowds at our home volleyball games have become frighteningly small. Imagine how the players feel after every game when there is no one there congratulating them on a win, or patting them on the back saying, Good game!Ž Just askingƒ Where is our support network? Junior Class Prepares For Take-O By Mikayla Pope, Shark CorrespondentAs we venture into the school year, Cedar Key Juniors jumped into making plans! e class sponsor, Cheryl Allen, thought of ideas for fundraisers and gathered the juniors together to brainstorm. e class had their “ rst meeting on ursday, September 13th, when they also held elections.

WES celebrates Freedom Weekby Lisa Statham Posteraro We hold these truths to be self-evidentƒŽ During much of September and especially during Freedom Week, students at Williston Elementary School celebrated the freedoms guaranteed by the nations Declaration of Independence and the Constitution with its Amendments in a variety of ways. U.S. public law requires that public education institutions receiving federal funds teach about the Constitution every September 17th. Florida law requires public school districts to commemorate the founding principles of our nation during the last full week of September. Of course, we have several books which have been written about September 11th,Ž said media specialist Donna Lovvorn. All of these were checked by some of our teachers and shared with their students.Ž In Steve Van Zwienens 5th grade class, Leandrea Evans said they read a story about the government. We talked about kids having rights.Ž We read a whole lot of stu about Lexington, Concord and the American Revolution,Ž said Shannon Rockett, a 5th grader in Laurie Helgeruds class. Some 3rd grade classes memorized part of the Declaration, beginning with We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equalƒamong these [rights] are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.Ž Others joined principal Marla Hiers in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America during the morning announcements. Delaney Holcomb, a 4th grader in Teri Dixons class, said, We read something in our social studies about the men who wrote the Constitution.Ž We wrote a paragraph about how good it is to be free,Ž said Lisa Carmichael, a 4th grader in Tracy Kirbys class. I think the best part about being free is being able to do whatever you please as long as its legal.Ž On the last Wednesday of September, as they did last year, students and sta who chose to do so gathered around the ” ag poles on campus to pray before the bell, practicing their religious freedom. Fourth grader Anthony Gri th, at his mother Pattys urging, wrote a letter to Hiers, requesting permission to have another Meet Me at the PoleŽ event like the one organized by students last year. I thought it would be nice to do it again. When you pray around the ” ag pole, it represents all those people who died in all wars,Ž said Anthony. Several veterans attended the event with their children and grandchildren. Soon well be honoring our veterans who have served to keep these freedoms alive,Ž said Hiers. On ursday morning, November 8th, we will again host a brief ceremony by our ” agpoles to honor these men and women, followed by a complimentary breakfast in our sta dining room. We encourage all our area veterans to attend.Ž at evening in the multipurpose room, two musical programs of patriotic music will be performed by the 4th and 5th grade classes to honor veterans. Many of the songs speak about and praise the freedoms we hold dear,Ž said Lynne No“ WES music teacher. No, the WES sta and students dont take their freedom for granted. ey say YES!Ž to freedom!Students, parents and several local ministers gather around the ag poles at Williston Elementary School before school takes in to pray for the school year, for our nations leaders and military and whatever was on their hearts to pray about. As in the past, the voluntary event, which began and ended prior to the beginning of the school day, was requested to happen by a student. This year is was 4th grader Anthony Gri th, son of Steve and Patty Gri th. $99.00 Customer Installation Charge. 36-Month Monitoring Agreement required at $35.99 per month ($1,295.64).

Pu tting the quilt top, the batting and the backing together is a lot easier doing it on the table top and not on the oor.By Todd HoldenAs printed and with permission from e Star in Delta, Pa. Sometimes, a tall tale is nothing but the truth and for Solomon John Hall, theres a lot of truth in that. He owns two houses, one in front of the other, and four tractors at his home in Chie” and. Living in two houses cuts the cleaning chores in half and theres a perfectly good explanation for the tractors, but well get to that. Years ago he had gas enough to get out of Florida, but he said, I still aint a goin cause my car only goes 30 miles an hour, itll take too long.Ž He was asked to come to Nashville to play with Billy Grammer and String Bean to a packed house in 1969. Mr. Grammer was a well known country artist who had a little big hit by the name of Gotta Travel On. S.J., as he prefers to be called, has a brother up this way and comes to Harford County every now and then when the mood strikes him. He plays bluegrass, singing and picking his six-string Gibson electric guitarƒwhich by the way he plays with just his left hand. When S.J. was only 6 years old he was electrocuted and lost his entire right arm. Tragic though it was, he now is 74 years old and can stretch a tale into an hour long epic. Hes road worn and weary, talks fast, and can do Beer Barrel Polka, Walk Across Texas and Sweet Jesusƒwith the best of them. His guitar playing is pure and sweet. With nothing short of a gift from above he can pick out a melody that “ lls out a sound any backing band would be proud to play behind. Not to mention a voice thats pure molasses and could make the top 25 on any country list. Hes seen a lot and done a lot in his time and name drops Opry players like they were second cousinsƒtucked into his stories of Bill Grammer hell tell you about encounters with the likes of Skeeter Davis, Bobby Lord, and the Fruit Jar Drinkers. If at “ rst you might think hes pulling your leg, just keep listening to his yarns and youll “ gure out the fabric is real. en again, he is an admitted hog thiefƒand may have stolen the truck he hauled them in. As far as those tractors, the reason he has four of them is sos he doesnt have to unhook the mower or the bucket loader each time he does a di erent jobƒthus a tractor for each speci“ c job. He interrupts our conversation after nearly every sentence by saying, You dont believe me, do ya?Ž Sure, I believe ya S.Jƒ.just lets get on with your story. With a twinkle in his eye, he continues on and rambles and spins a story you just arent sure is the truth or not. en again, by the time hes doneƒor at least winds down to take a breathƒyoure convinced that no man could make this stu up. When he eats cake, or likely anything else, he takes out his false teeth to keep them clean and makes no bones about it. Not one to stand on ceremony, at the same time ole S.J. is about the most courteous and respectful fellow youd ever want to meet. S.J. is the brother of Ralph Hall, who lives in Port Deposit. Ralph is very proud of his brother, and justly so. He hauls S.J. around when hes up north, to play, sing and tell tales at churches, family gatherings and hoedowns here and there. One of the possible reasons S. J. headed to Nashville and the Opry was perhaps he was on the dodge for hog stealing and needed a break from the hometown law. is has to be veri“ ed of course, and the only source is, well, you know. I asked S.J. if he knew the Roger Miller song, You Cant Rollerskate In A Bu alo Herd?Ž He said he knows it and can play it. When he last played in the area, S.J. said between songsƒ Hows everybody out there doin?Ž e crowd says good. As he turns to his players and gives them a key to play in, S.J. turns back to the crowd and says, Well, lets see if we can “ x that.Ž Hes pure showman, snake oil salesman, working class hero, musician and raconteurƒhes truly an original character. If only we had a few more one of a kind gentlemen like S.J., wed all be telling tall talesƒand every one of them true.Soloman John Hall, One of a Kind Soloman John Hall. Photo by Todd Holden

I dont even have to exaggerate to have them sit there and stare at me in awe. I can almost see their little wheels spinning. Often one of them will pull me to the side, Listen, I got my eye on this new big screen. You got any suggestions?Ž ey refuse to even consider I may have acquired that ri” e innocently, with hardly any conniving. e ri” e came about on this wise. My little brother Heath had taken to spinning our childhood tales everyday at lunch in our work break room. Unfortunately, a lot of his recollection seemed to center on how I used to bully him. Its not that I didnt enjoy hearing about my glory days, but he was really rallying a lot of sympathy at my expense. I knew Id better quash his thunder a bit. I thought and thought, but only one solution came to mind; and since Heath was more rightly classi“ ed as a younger brother now than a little one, I had a few reservations about trying bullying him again. I just couldnt “ gure out what to do. en the thought hit me, youre a Christian now, You could always pray!Ž So I did. I laid the whole twisted tale out there on the table before God. Big mistake! Or at least I thought so at the time. e Lord seemed to side with dumb ole Heath! He wrenched me out like a wet beach towel and hung me out under such conviction that I began to have a series of very strange thoughts, like I might need to make it up to Heath or something. en an idea hit me. Begrudgingly, I knew what I must do. I gathered my courage and took my plans to the boss. My wife listened intently, and even seemed genuinely sympathetic when I told her how bad I felt for whomping that little wimp all those years. In fact, she was close to tears by the end of my speech, so I “ nished strong, It would just mean the world to me if I could just get him that new Browning ri” e hes been hankering for.Ž Maybe shed heard some of Heaths sob stories before, because she simply sni ed and uttered the words every husband longs to hear. Ill get the checkbook.Ž e next day we got that knucklehead a brand new Browning. I was sorely tempted to skip town and keep it for myself. en the thought hit me,  e Lord is already in it, I better just stick with the plan.Ž So I did. I wrapped the gun up in some old Christmas paper and dropped it o by Heaths house that night while he was out. I left him a note explaining how I just wanted to be a good brother for once. I guess I even meant it, because it kind of felt good. Heath called me later. Id never heard him more excited. He chattered on and on about that ri” e. en he sprung it on me. He and his wife had been talking. Since hed already saved up the money to buy a ri” e for himself, they wanted to use it to buy me one just like it. Of course, I put up a good “ ght and all, but then the thought hit me, Who was I to rob poor ole Heath of all the joy this giving stu was bringing?Ž It turns out shooting straight with God was a good idea after all. Once I enlisted Gods help He hit me with one good idea after another! Maybe thats what King David meant when he said, (Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah. Psalms 62:8 KJV). You dont have to read very much of the Psalms to realize King David wasnt afraid to share things with God; good, bad, or ugly. He just laid his feelings right out there. God didnt strike him down or anything. In fact, I think the Lord actually honored him for it. It may be a crazy thought, but what if God already knows about all our secret rubbish? What if Hes glad when we “ nally get real enough with ourselves that we can get real with Him? It worked for King David. He just stayed right there on the potters wheel, and God was able to shape quite a man out of him. But anywaySometimes you can almost see my wifes wheels spinning when I pull out my new ri” e. Yet she cant deny the whole situation has helped to bring Heath and me closer. In fact, Heaths turned out to be just about the best brother ever. Odd really, for someone who once accused me of giving him dain bramage.-Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

THERE BEING NO FURTHER BUSINESS TO COME BEFORE THE COMMISSION, THE MEETING ADJOURNED AT 6:57 P.M. ATTEST: BOARD OFCOUNTYCOMMISSIONERS LEVY COUNTY,FL ___________________________________________ Clerk of Court, Danny J. Shipp Chairman, Danny StevensOutta’ the WoodsŽNew Gray Squirrel Season Dates, Muzzleloading and Dove Season RegulationsTony Young Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionFootball season is in full swing, and the 2012-13 hunting season is cranking up. Heck, in Zone A, theyre already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, Id like to cover some things you should know regarding three hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun, gray squirrel and the “ rst phase of dove. Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates run Nov. 17-30 in Zone B, Oct. 20 … Nov. 2 in Zone C and Dec. 1-7 in Zone D. During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addition to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. e most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deer and wild hog. In the deer category, only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. e daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs year-round on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders “ ring single bullets must be at least .40-caliber. Guns “ ring two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. During muzzleloading gun season, you may not use muzzleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with selfcontained cartridge ammunition capabilities. Its also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and theres a two-bird fall-season limit. But you cant hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall and winter. On WMAs, bag limits and antler/size restrictions can di er, so check the speci“ cs of the area before you hunt. New this year: Gray squirrel season has been extended statewide on private lands, and from now on, it opens a month earlier. is year, it starts Oct. 13. is new rule didnt go into e ect until after the 2012-13 Florida Hunting Regulations Handbooks were printed … thats why the old November opening date is listed. eres a daily bag limit of 12 gray squirrels, and shooting fox squirrels is still against the law. Legal shooting hours are from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs, however. e “ rst phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season begins Oct. 6 and ends Oct. 29 statewide. Shooting hours during this “ rst phase are noon to sunset, and theres a 15-bird daily bag limit. e only “ rearm youre allowed to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you cant use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an agricultural “ eld, as long as the crop has been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, its against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you cant do while dove hunting include using ri” es, pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, youll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if youd like to take a fall turkey, youll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If youre going to hunt doves, youll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local county tax collectors o ce; through license agents; by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. So if youre going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or small-game hunting with friends and family, I hope Ive helped explain some of the things you need to know. Fall weather is settling in, and many animals have begun or will soon start foraging for winter. But it is still quite warm in the Sunshine State, and wildlife is frisky and abundant, especially in your backyard. Take a walk outside. Look in bushes, shrubs, grass, on ” owers, in and under potted plants and on the walls of your house. And, dont forget to look up. Birds are perched in trees and soaring in the sky. How many critters can you “ nd? While on my own backyard safari I saw a peculiar moth that didnt look like a moth at all. At “ rst glance, it looks like a hummingbird but smaller and doesnt have a beak. It hovers over ” owers and ” utters its wings a million times a second just like hummingbirds, has a proboscis or antennae that sucks nectar out of ” owers, more than two legs and an insect-like body. I didnt view it for long because it zoomed o quicker than I could say hummingbird moth! e backyard is an oasis of life. And, just because the sun goes down doesnt mean the critters go to sleep. Nighttime brings the sounds of raccoons shu ing leaves while foraging for food, crickets chirping and frogs croaking as the human world drifts o to sleep. In certain seasons, dusk brings the tiny ” ashes of “ re” ies. Make a list of the animals you “ nd. In my yard, I have ” uttering zebra longwings and three zebra longwing caterpillars, Eastern black swallowtails, two big golden orb weavers, a vulture gliding above, chattering squirrels, crickets, black swallowtail butter” y caterpillars chewing my parsley plant, snails and the list goes on. Can you identify a unique fact about the animals on your list? For example, zebra longwing caterpillars main food source is the passion” ower vine. Young caterpillars chomp and chew on the vine until its time to transform into the beautiful adult yellow-and-black striped longwing that ” utters in your garden, looking for nectar plants that feed them. Safety tip: While searching, be sure not to handle or touch anything if you arent sure if it is harmless. If searching under logs, be sure to roll the log toward you in case there are any slithering creatures living underneath. Rolling it toward you allows any snake (usually the small, harmless ringneck, redbelly, earth or brown snakes) to slither away from you. Wear bug spray, since skeeters are still biting, and have fun! Also, be sure to visit MyFWC.com/News for past Backyard Safari articles on zebra longwings, golden orb weavers, green anoles and so much more.Abundant Life Is Just Beyond Your Porch Zebra longwing on red penta blooms Photo credit MyFWCMedia by Lisa Statham Posteraro Reading involves so much more than just perusing story books!

At one of the reading centers in Guinslers room, Isabella Acosta had learned that ants could carry up to 20 times their weight, and Liyah Conley found out the average life span of an ant is between 40-65 days. Because the story was set in the American Southwest, the geography term mesaŽ was introduced according to Jamirya Days. And the answer to that question of who was the strongest?  e antsƒthey took little parts of the rock till it was all gone,Ž said Nina Hiers.

Guinsler teaches reading and social studies while Edwards teaches math and science.  e kids really enjoy this genre just as they enjoy poetry,Ž said Guinsler. Its amazing how many students will read with such expression. It certainly makes it more entertaining to listen to or watch. And theyll remember the experience of having acted in a play.Ž
