Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923www.levyjournalonline.com VOL. 89, NO. 15 50 CENTS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012 Primeval Creatures in the Suwannee Rep. Paul Ryan Comes to OcalaSee page 9ASee Levy Life 1B Elections InformationOct. 27Nov. 3 Early Voting at Elections O ce only 421 S. Court St, BronsonSat-Sat 8:30 to 4:30 PMSun 10 to 4 PM Nov. 6 General Election At all Voting Precincts 7 AM 7 PMStarve the Government Amendment Guide Romney versus Obama See page 4BSee page 4Bby Brad Furnish On Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics shocked the world of business, nance and economics by declaring that unemployment in September fell to 7.8% from its August level of 8.1%. Coming just a month before the Nov. 6 Presidential election, this dubious nding gave rise to widespread rumors and even accusations of collusion between the Obama campaign and the Bureau. It is highly unlikely that the President's men conspired with Bureau o cials or employees to invent or alter employment data. e Obama campaign would have too little to gain relative to its potential loss. A 0.3% fall in the unemployment rate hardly delivered a passkey to the Oval O ce, but proof of a collusive conspiracy would doom Obama's chances even if undiscovered until after the election. at does not mean there was no wrongdoing here far from it. It should be obvious to all that something was indeed terribly wrong with the way this episode was handled. Start with the fact that BLS's unemployment number is obviously wrong. "Wrong" does not connote fraud or deceit. It means there was a short-circuit in the chain of reasoning leading to 7.8% unemployment. e BLS household survey estimated a seasonally adjusted total of newly employed workers exceeding 873,000 in September. is was the largest total since June, 1983 (when annualized GDP growth was 9.3%) and January, 1990 (when growth was 4.2%). (Two larger totals in 2000 and 2003 are not comparable because of data adjustments made by BLS.) Yet our current reported growth rate is 1.3%. Moreover, some 582,000 of those estimated workers were part-time. e BLS also conducts a survey of job growth based on a sampling of business payrolls. is estimate has declined in each of the last three months, from 181,000 to 142,000 to September's total of 114,000. It isn't just that the two surveys di er they often do. But not by this much. And the fact that recent payrolls detect falling job growth contrasts starkly with the September household survey's stratospheric increase. Private-sector forecasters each have their own individualized reasons for thinking that the BLS has lost its marbles. My rm, Access Advertising, is a national leader in placing truck-driver recruiting ads. We compile the Driver Recruiting Index (DRI), which estimates the demand for commercial drivers in real time by sampling classi ed driver ads in 32 major-metropolitan newspapers throughout the country. e DRI has been declining on a year-over-year basis throughout 2012 and by 10-20% since June. In September, the DRI fell by an average of over 14% compared to August. In order to believe the 7.8% gure, I would have to believe that the agency has detected a major economic expansion from which trucking which carries two-thirds of the nation's freight is somehow excluded. is is wildly unlikely. Here is a sampling of characterizations of the 7.8% unemployment rate and the 873,000 job gain in the household survey: "Must be an anomaly;" "statistical anomaly;" "just a uke;" "statistical quirk;" "implausible;" "almost certainly a statistical uke;" "huge statistical outlier on the upside;" "not reality;" "an aberration." All of these comments come from respected economists, forecasters and consultants, one of whom is a former director of the Congressional Budget O ce. Some of them are known to be supporters of the Obama administration. None are rabid antiadministration partisans. Suppose you are Hilda Solis, Obamaappointee as head of BLS. It is 8AM, Oct. 5. You have just been handed the report including the 7.8% unemployment and 870,000 household survey gures. You should: 1. order a double-check of all relevant data generation and calculation. 2. (assuming your results checked out) accompany a press release with an announcement that your sampling procedures produced one estimate that de es common sense. 3. Advise the public that no weighty conclusions be drawn from the 7.8% unemployment estimate, since it is highly suspect. 4. Invite scrutiny of your methods, The BLS and that 7.8% Unemployment Rate By Kathy HilliardEditorTo say that people are a bit wary of election procedures these days is putting it mildly so when absentee ballots started coming back to voters via the mail, it caused concern. e front of the absentee ballot envelope contains the return address of the voter/sender, the preprinted address of the Elections O ce to whom the ballot is being sent, the place for postage and just to the left of the postage box there is a FIM bar code preprinted on the envelope. is FIM is put there by the envelope printer as set up by the purchaser of the envelopes. e Facing Identi cation Mark (FIM) is a bar code designed by the United States Postal Service to assist in the automated processing of mail. It looks like a set of vertical bars. e FIM allows the proper facing of mail for cancellation and identi es the manner in which postage is paid. On the back of the ballot envelope is the Voters Certi cate which requires the voters signature attesting that they are who they say they are and legally registered to vo te. Also on the back is a label with the voters name and address and also their registration # being used to scan into the voting database when the ballot is received by the Elections O ce. is immediately updates the database throughout Where Did Your Absentee Ballot Go?continued on page 2A continued on page 2ALevy County Presented PILT Monies from SRWMD e rst item taken up by the Levy County Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday October 16 was a presentation by Suwannee River Water Management District Executive Director Ann Shortelle. A presentation on the long term plans to conserve water and a presentation of a PILT (Payment in Lieu of Taxes) check to the Board of County Commissioners. is morning Shortelle laid out the feast or famine balancing act the District must maintain between water in the region going from dry as a bone to copious amounts from TS Debby and continued rainfall. In explaining the need for balancing water resources even though there has been heavy rainfall, Shortelle reiterated the partnership in place with the St. Johns River WMD and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP), an agency in which Shortelle was Director of Water Policy from 2011 until her recent appointment as Executive Director of SRWMD this year. Shortelle gave a quick synopsis of water needs and extractions saying, Although we (partnership members) are in di erent surface water basins we are depending primarily for our fresh water, our potable water supply, on the Upper Florida Aquifer. at aquifer does not understand the surface water basin divides and is truly a shared resource for all of us across Florida, really. Shortelle stated that the in the eastern counties of our district they are not con dent that a there will be a sustainable water supply from ground and surface water in 20 years. So that is the Districts planning horizon, 20 years. e partnerships and districts look to current conditions and impacts on water supply mapping out plans to implement procedures and projects to mitigate water loss for all users by establishing minimum ows and levels (MFLs) and sharing solutions. In Levy County the MFLs are already set but to the north the District is in the process of setting those MFLs. Shortelle went on to explain two upcoming programs with the SRWMD providing $1.5 million in funds for each. One program for farmers provides cost-share funds to assist farmers in conserving water and protecting water quality according to the District. ese projects would increase irrigation e ciency and water conservation and assist with nutrient management technology. Interested parties can apply online from the Districts Ag webpage at www.mysuwanneeriver.com/ agriculture or in person at headquarters at 9225 CR 49 in Live Oak. e other program designated the cost-share funds to assist local governments with projects involving ecosystem restoration, ood protection, alternative water supply, conservation and water quality improvements through the Regional Initiative Valuing Environmental Resources (RIVER) program. e funds are awarded through a ranking process based on various criteria including the e ectiveness of the proposed project to protect, conserve or restore water resources. e workshop for this is Nov. 2 at 10 AM at headquarters in Live Oak. Shortelle went on to explain that in Levy County there are 7,000 acres of district properties in fee ownership and several thousand acres under conservation easement. And these lands are the reason Shortelle was before the board this morning to present a check to the commissioners for $30, 401.84 for Levy County. is was a PILT check or Payment in Lieu of Taxes which are federal payments to local governments to o set losses in property taxes due to nontaxable federal lands within their boundaries. Because federally owned land is exempt from municipal, state and county taxes, a PILT payment compensates the municipality in which the property is located for lost tax revenue. Needless to say, the entire board was unanimously chuckling this morning. All in agreement said yes.

Law Enforcement Finally Got their Reckless DriverTrevor Francis Flum, 35, of Warren, Michigan got caught, nally. On Saturday October 13, at 9 p.m. Flum was driving a white 2006 Volkswagen Jetta on the west side of I-75 at the 376 mile marker weaving all over the road. Trooper Michael Todd of the Florida Highway Patrol noticed the reckless driving and initiated a tra c stop suspecting DUI. While attempting to administer eld sobriety tests, Flum took o on foot into the dark wood line on the west side of I-75. Trooper Todd took chase after Flum when Flum, hiding behind a tree, ambushed Trooper Todd using a tree limb to strike the trooper in the head. Trooper Todd sustained non-incapacitating injuries and discharged his service weapon but did not strike Flum. Flum ran deeper into the woods and Trooper Todd, along with additional FHP, Alachua Co. Sheri s O ce and Marion Co. Sheri s O ce o cers, searched the area throughout the night. But Flum evaded capture. e Alachua Co. Sheri s O ce had put out a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) in the area including CR 234 in Micanopy. On Sunday October 14 at 9 a.m. Deputy Marvin Gunn and Trooper Matthew Simmons located Flum on the west side of I-75 near a gas station where he was taken into custody. Trooper Simmons arrested Flum and transported him to the Alachua Co. jail for booking. Trooper Todd was noti ed and proceeded to the jail to make charges on Flum who was charged with: Aggravated Battery on LEO, Resisting Arrest with Violence, Driving While License Suspended, Reckless Driving, DUI, and Escape. information supplied by the Florida Highway Patrol Unemployment Rate continued from page 1Asuspect. 4. Invite scrutiny of your methods, results and checks by any interested parties. What did the BLS do? Apparently, none of the above. Instead, they simply released the results with no special emphasis. (Later, Ms. Solis even refused to cast doubt on the suspect estimates and even defended them, somewhat obliquely.) is had the e ect of inviting the general public, the press and even sophisticated analysts to take the information at face value. Quite a few people did. Others viewed it as a slap in the face. And some of those started to question the honesty of the whole process. Why did the BLS do nothing instead of the right things? eir inaction may have been due to political bias or to bureaucratic inertia. In this case, the outcome of a Presidential election might ride on the procedures for handling a foul-up like this. But the point would apply just as strongly if the data had been released on Nov. 7 or any other day. ere are always important matters riding on the content of government data releases, and people want to believe that government employees are acting in good faith and providing reliable information. e best way to convince people that the government is here to help them is to go out of your way to do just that. the entire state of Florida that this persons vote has been received. is secure system is a checking system to warn the elections o ces that anyone coming in to vote with this name and number has already voted. According to Michelle Hagan in the Levy County Elections O ce, they have been printing the envelopes this way for 18 years and in all that time have only had a couple of mail glitches. But this time around there are more. e Elections O ce was noti ed by an area Postmaster in Chief that there was a problem with the envelopes coming back to voters. e envelopes were developed by a retired Postmaster and the format has been used for many years with no problems. When local Levy County mail is put in the mail box or at the post o ce it is then sent to Jacksonville to the sorting o ce. At that point the mail is sent back to the Levy County area post o ces according to the FIM number on the envelope detailing which post o ce the mail piece belongs to. e problem is the label on the back of the envelope. Somehow the envelope is being faced incorrectly to read the back of the envelope the side without any postage or FIM number and is kicked out as cancelled or incorrect. at puts it in a category of return to sender, as that is the address on that label, the voter/sender. So back comes the mail to be returned to the sender/voter through the same local post o ce de ned by the FIM number. A local voter informed their post o ce that their ballot had been sent back to them which triggered the post o ce to inform the Elections O ce of the problem. Not to worry. If you should get your ballot back in the mail here are the solutions: 1. Take to the ballot drop box at the Elections O ce and drop in. 2. Put through the mail slot at the Elections O ce and drop it. 3. Give it to your mail carrier to re-deliver FREE to you. ere will be NO extra postage due. Most of all, thank you for voting. It is a privilege someone gave their life for dont waste it.Absentee Ballot continued from page 1A

With the hot, humid weather breaking earlier in the week, the Whitehurst Ranch & Prairie provided an ideal backdrop for the annual event a fundraiser for Haven in the tri-county area. Music was provided by Dottie South and the Slackers. Food was catered by Ivy House. As always, the evening included a live and silent auction with some great products. ere was even a cowboy poet to provide entertainment during dinner, which was served outdoors adjacent to a majestic lake. Nature cooperated with a late afternoon of pleasant temperatures, followed by a great sunset and stars. And the widescreen TV showing the Gator victory over Vanderbilt added to the festivities. As people gathered for dinner, Haven Administrator Patrick Allen thanked their hosts, the Whitehurst family and described the evening as a night to relax and gather with friends and other supporters of Haven Hospice. All proceeds from the event bene t the Haven Hospice Tri-County Care Center and unreimbursed patient care, grief support and community education programs in the area. Approximately $50,000 was raised with 400 guests and volunteers in attendance.

Vice President Fugate seconded and the motion carried unanimously, 5-0. e items below were approved: A. MINUTES FROM SEPTEMBER 11, 2012 REGULAR CITY COUNCIL MEETING B. INFORMATION: PENSION BOARD RESIGNATION C. STAFF REPORT: AUGUST FINANCIAL REPORTS ITEM 3 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION Mrs. Chris Scalogli addressed the Council and advised that she had moved to Williston two weeks ago with her husband and sister. She stated that they love Williston and appreciate all thats been done for the town as far as the grass, trees, owers, etc. She explained that when she and her sister traveled through Newberry, they noticed that the downtown is about the same size as Williston but appears to have had some organized beauti cation. She stated they thought they could do something to help give the downtown a facelift by planting trees or owers or having volunteers come and paint the buildings. She stated that Williston would only need a few improvements and that people who are making Williston their permanent homes have commented that businesses would be more willing to rent if the appearance of this area was improved. She stated that the owner of Williston Crossings said he would be willing to do whatever he could to help. She concluded by saying that while they have no idea of the history of the town in terms of where it has been or where it was planning to go, they are willing to get people together to facilitate these e orts. President Cason advised that the City does have a CRA and that he felt sure that they would welcome the input at the next CRA meeting. Planner Hall advised that the CRA Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month and that the committee would be happy to hear what they had to say. President Cason advised that it was the very same kind of attitude was what brought about the improvements in linear park area. Mrs. Scalogli stated that they would be willing to assist in raising the money if the owners were interested in allowing these things to be done. Mr. Sidney Frazier addressed the Council and advised he is a resident of east Williston and was attending to discuss the drainage problems in the NE 10th area. He stated the water continues to settle in his yard and he cannot exit his property after a hard rain. He advised that his mother had lived in this location for 50 or 60 years and he was hopeful the City could do something to improve the drainage on that street. President Cason clari ed his address. Interim City Manager Wingo stated during a call earlier in the week, she explained to Mr. Frazier that the City is working on a Capital Improvement Plan. President Cason commented that the Members there are several issues to address with infrastructure such as water quality, sewage system and drainage and thanked Mr. Frazier for his willingness to come and express his concerns publicly so that the Council could keep these issues at the forefront of its e ort. ITEM 4 OLD BUSINESS A. PUBLIC HEARING: SECOND HEARING CDBG RESOLUTION 2012-20 & 2012-21 Mr. Fred Fox addressed the Council to commence the 2nd Public Hearing CDBG Application Process. Mr. Fox stated that the recommendation before the Council was to pass two resolutions related to this project. e project consists of installing a pressure reduction valve to permit an adjustment of the pressure that would allow for a valve to be opened and tied into the rest of your system. e remainder of the grant project is for repair and replacement of sewer lines in four di erent service areas in the SE quadrant. Mr. Fox stated he believed the City had gained a hundred points as a result of the pre-engineering and that he did not believe the City would have obtained the award without it. President Fugate moved to adopt resolutions 2012-20 and 201221 authorizing the implementation of the Long and short term objectives of the City of Williston Community Development Plan and authorizing the submission for an application for the small cities CDBG grant for the scal year 2012. Councilman Byrd seconded and the motion carried unanimously, 5-0. B. COUNTER-OFFER FROM PROGRESS ENERGY John Warner of Progress Energy addressed the Council and advised that in reviewing the o er presented at the prior meeting to match the same rates, terms and conditions as the Mt. Dora rates, waive the $60,000 in the billing error correction and to retain the 2012 rates for 2013 without the escalation that is included in the current contract that prior o er still stands. In addition to those provisions, the more recent proposal includes an additional stipulation to take the rates established for 20142016 and average them in with the 2013 rate to level the overall rates for four years to provide for more immediate savings to the City. Progress Energy estimates the savings for 2013 would be approximately $200,000. With this presentation, Mr. Warner stated that Progress Energy would like to determine if there is still an interest in discussing this o er further and suggested that the City take 30 days to consider the o er and hold a workshop to provide an opportunity to answer any questions the Council might have on the o er. President Cason con rmed with Mr. Warner that the proposal is to average the new Mt. Dora rates for 2014-16 at $6.95 kw/h in with the reduced 2013 rate of $7.75 kw/h and set that average, of $7.15 kw/h as the at rate over the entire four year period. Mr. Wagner advised that the newly proposed 2013 rate is $7.75 kw/h as opposed to the $8 kw/h it was supposed to go to per the current contract. President Cason con rmed that if the City took the original o er, the provisions would be at $8 per kw/h for 2013 and $6.95 kw/h for 2014-16. Mr. Wagner responded that rate is half of the equation and that the other half is the nonfuel rate which would be averaged in a similar fashion. He stated that currently the City pays $10 per megawatt hour and at the Mt. Dora non-fuel rate, the cost would go to $4. is would average to approximately $5.66 per megawatt hour. Vice President Fugate con rmed that the o er was non-binding and subject to approval by Duke Power. Mr. Wagner advised that the proposal is in line with the Mt. Dora contract which has just been reviewed by management, legal and FMPA and the document, at that level, has been approved by those parties. He stated that if the terms and conditions are agreeable to the City, there would not require much legal work or review on the part of Progress Energy. Councilman Goodman asked Interim City Manager Wingo, based on her knowledge and expertise and assuming the savings in 2013 alone is $200,000, if the City proceeded with the RFP would it save more than the $200,000 in projected savings included in the current proposal. Interim City Manager Wingo responded that it is a crap shoot. She stated that as evidenced by their nal contract, the market is such that Mt. Dora came out with $6.95. Progress is o ering the City $7.15 for the next four years but her opinion is that the letter is a crap shoot, it is a non-binding and unsigned agreement. She asked how the o er would change when the RFP is put out on Oct 8th. Mr. Wagner responded that he extended the o er for 30 days to provide the City the opportunity for review. Councilman Goodman asked what the RFP would cost. President Cason replied that the RFP would cost nothing but the analysis of proposals would cost between $15,000 and $20,000. He stated that in addition to the immediate $200,000 in savings for 2013, there would be an additional $60,000 waived in billing errors with $280,000 in savings in the next 16 months. He commented that he had a very di cult time believing this is the lowest rate possible when the proposing entity is competing with only itself. Councilman Fugate noted that Mr. Bloom had calculated approximately $900,000 in overall savings. He stated he wanted to see something for 2013 but then the City had something taken away for the remaining years. He concluded he would like to see Mt. Dora rates e ective immediately. In addition, he advised the o er should be binding and he did not believe the City should consider any non-binding o ers. Mr. Wagner stated that the current contract states that either party can request the ability for an extension period for pricing. He advised Progress Energy received the letter in August asking for the proposed pricing terms and conditions and that is what has been provided. Councilman Byrd commented that the contents of the o er are serious enough for the Council to hold a workshop to discuss

The Levy County Journal4AOctober 18, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Random Thoughts Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateRandom thoughts on the passing scene: Not since the days of slavery have there been so many people who feel entitled to what other people have produced as there are in the modern welfare state, whether in Western Europe or on this side of the Atlantic. Economist Edward Lazear has cut through all of Barack Obamas claims about creating jobs with one plain and inescapable fact -there hasnt been one day during the entire Obama presidency when as many Americans were working as on the day President Bush left o ce. Whatever number of jobs were created during the Obama administration, more have been lost. How are children supposed to learn to act like adults, when so much of what they see on television shows adults acting like children? e know-it-all smirks and condescending laughs of Vice President Joe Biden, when Congressman Paul Ryan was speaking during their debate, were a little much from an administration presiding over economic woes at home and disasters overseas -and being caught in lies about both. Like Barack Obama, Joe Biden has all the clever tricks of a politician and none of the wisdom of a statesman. If you truly believe in the brotherhood of man, then you must believe that blacks are just as capable of being racists as whites are. One of the most foolish, and most dangerous, things one can do is to take love for granted, instead of nurturing it and safeguarding it as the prize jewel of ones life. Whenever you hear people talking about a living Constitution, almost invariably they are people who are in the process of slowly killing it by interpreting its restrictions on government out of existence. Do either Barack Obama or his followers have any idea how many countries during the 20th century set out to spread the wealth -and ended up spreading poverty instead? At some point, you have to turn from rhetoric, theories and ideologies to facts. I am so old that I can remember when liberals were liberal -instead of being intolerant of anything and anybody that is not politically correct. Whatever happened to Julie Banderas of the Fox News Channel? She had brains, looks, wit and personality. Has she met with foul play? Or has some zillionaire married her and taken her o to his own private island? e question to be asked of people in the media, and that they should ask themselves, should be: Is your rst loyalty to your audience or to your ideology? e same question should be asked of educators, especially those who see themselves as agents of social change, even though that is not the job description under which they have been hired and paid. People who complain about negative campaign ads miss the point. It is perfectly legitimate to criticize your opponent. e question is whether the ads are about serious things that matter to the future of this country, and whether they are telling the truth or lying. If you believe Barack Obama and others who oppose what they call tax cuts for the rich, you might want to consider what the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said: You are entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. If you want to see some documented facts about tax rates and tax revenues, there is a box titled Tax Cuts on my web site (www. tsowell.com). Click on it. In baseball, switch hitters are said to have an advantage. But the highest lifetime batting average by a switch hitter (.319 by Frankie Frisch) is more than 30 points lower than the highest batting average for either left-handed hitters or right-handed hitters. e highest batting average in a season by a switch hitter (.365 by Mickey Mantle) is more than 50 points lower. If there is ever a Hall of Fame for con dence men, Charles Ponzi and Bernie Mado will have to take a back seat to Barack Obama. Obama is the gold standard -or, perhaps more appropriately, the brass standard.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMThe Deadly Disgrace of Obamas Pro-Terrorist Lawyers OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateOctober 12 marks the 12th anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. e grim milestone comes as President Obama faces mounting questions about his administrations dereliction of duty during the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. And it comes just a day after resurgent al-Qaida thugs pulled o the drive-by assassination of a top Yemeni security o cial who worked at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa. ese are not bumps in the road. ese are gravesites on the blood-spattered path to surrender.Seventeen U.S. sailors died in the brutal suicide attack on the guided Navy missile destroyer as it refueled at the Yemeni port of Aden in the fall of 2000. en-President Bill Clinton vowed to track down the Muslim terrorist attackers: We will nd out who was responsible and hold them accountable. But a dozen disgraceful years later, Slick Willys toothless promise has become a bitter punch line. e current Democratic White House has not only delayed and denied justice to the victims and their families. President Obamas foot-dragging administration, crawling with pro-terrorist lawyers, e ectively undermines our nations ability to detain, contain and destroy jihad threats from within and without. Suspected Cole bombing suspect and former Persian Gulf Operations Chief for al-Qaida Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri has been in U.S. custody since 2002 and at Gitmo since 2006. In February 2009, Obama met with Cole families and promised them justice. en, he stabbed them in the back by ordering the (Social) Justice Department to abandon the death penalty case assembled against the al-Qaida mastermind under the Bush administration. ats right: e Osama bin Laden football-spikers in the Obama administration deliberately dropped the USS Cole ball on alNashiris military prosecution because of their opposition to the Guantanamo Bay detention system. Jesse Nieto, father of murdered Cole sailor Marc Nieto, wont forget it. at really left a bitter, bad taste in my mouth, he told the Newnan (Ga.) Times-Herald earlier this year. In 2011, the Obama administration reinstated the charges amid a widespread backlash against Attorney General Eric Holders plans to bestow U.S. civilian trials in Manhattan to foreign Gitmo goons. But the trial has been plagued by yet more delays and left-wing lawyer antics painting Nashiri as a victim of American hegemony. is whole trial is a political football the politicians are playing with, Nieto aptly noted. If they left it to the military, it would be taken care of. And it would be fair. Team Obamas initial withdrawal from the prosecution came out of left eld -literally. But it is no surprise to those who paid attention to Holders radical ideological and corporate allegiances. As I reported in Culture of Corruption, Holder joined the prestigious Covington and Burling business and corporate law rm after a quarter-century as a government lawyer. e stint boosted his net worth to nearly $6 million. Covington and Burlings post-9/11 claim to fame? Representing 17 terror suspects held at Gitmo who hail from Yemen, long a safe haven for terrorists. (Another Cole bombing mastermind, Jamal Mohammed al Badawi, was convicted and sentenced to die in Yemen for the terror attack, but somehow escaped twice from jail and was freed by the Yemeni government in 2007.)Holders law rm employed dozens of radical attorneys such as David Remes and Marc Falko to provide the enemy combatants with more than 3,000 hours of pro bono representation. Covington and Burling secured victories for several Gitmo enemy combatants in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Remes, who garnered human rights awards for Covington and Burling before striking out on his own, now represents Nashiri.Falko went on to publish a book of poetry, Poems from Guantanamo: e Detainees Speak, which he dedicated to the suspected terrorists: For my friends inside the wire, Mahmoad, Majid, Yasein, Saeed, Abdulsalam, Mohammed, Adnan, Jamal, Othman, Adil, Mohamed, Abdulmalik, Areef, Adeq, Farouk, Salman, and Makhtar. Inshallah, we will next meet over co ee in your homes in Yemen. One of the class of Yemeni Gitmo detainees that Falko described as gentle, thoughtful young men was released in 2005 -only to blow himself up (gently and thoughtfully, of course) in a truck bombing in Mosul, Iraq, in 2008, killing 13 soldiers from the 2nd Iraqi Army division and seriously wounding 42 others.In January 2010, e Times of London reported that at least a dozen former Guantanamo Bay inmates (had) rejoined al-Qaida to ght in Yemen. Another Yemeni Gitmo recidivist and top al-Qaida leader, Said al-Shihri, was freed after undergoing rehabilitation -and then promptly rejoined jihadi forces. He was reportedly killed in a U.S. missile strike last month. In February 2010, GOP Sen. Charles Grassley forced Holder to acknowledge that at least nine DOJ attorneys o cially represented or served as advocates for Gitmo detainees before joining the Obama administration. ey work in the o ces of the attorney general, the acting deputy attorney general, the associate attorney general, and the assistant attorney general for the criminal division. In addition, the assistant attorney general for the civil division previously represented one Afghan detainee, and his former employer represents other detainees. Gitmo recidivists -a burgeoning Obama demographic that includes suspected Benghazi jihad plotter Abu Su an Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu -certainly are better o than they were four years ago. e question is: Can Americans at home and abroad really a ord another four years of Obama, Holder and their soft-on-terror government attorneys sabotaging national security?

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Letter to the EditorFriends and Patriots, After spending time vetting the proposed amendments on the November ballot, I have arrived at the following conclusions. I studied the actual amendments, and the groups for and against the proposals. I hope this will present aspects of these amendments that will aid in your decision on the November ballot. I hope you will agree and share this with your friends and neighbors. I am personally plundered by Alachua County around $1,000 / month with all taxes considered. I must gross $3,000 in revenue in order to pay this and consider the level of taxation and the uses of the taxes to be immoral. We are not free! Government must be limited. Please vote to starve government of our money. Constitutional Amendment Review on November 2012 Ballot YES on 1, 3,4,5,6, & 10 NO on 2, 8,9,11 & 12 Amendment #1 is a stepping stone to state nulli cation of an unconstitutional federal law on medical care. An a rmative vote would support the state legislature if they were to nullify the Federal law. Amendment #1 YES Amendment #2 in e ect shifts the property tax burden to the remaining taxpayers and we either need to abolish property taxes entirely or require universal payment. If all property owners have to pay, then we can count on their support to abolish or lower taxes. Amendment #2 NO Amendment #3 limits government by limiting revenue. e best policy in absence of abolishing improper roles for government is to starve government of our money. Amendment #3 YES Amendment #4 does what Amendment #3 does by denying government of our money. I do not favor the homestead exemption to rst time homebuyers but it does starve local government and the overall bill works against government. Amendment #4 YES Amendment #5 improves the checks and balance that the legislature has over the courts. Judges and lawyers do not like it which is all the more reason to support it. We must restrain the courts and need something often neglected but similar to the Federal Constitution in Article III, Section 2 where the legislature can restrict appellate jurisdiction of the courts. Amendment #5 YES Amendment #6 is an obvious yes. Government money should not be used for abortions, and there should be no exceptions and parents of minors should be informed. Amendment #6 YES Amendment #8 would allow government to have in uence on churches because with the money there is always control. For government to provide for one group, it must take from another. It is not theirs to give. Additionally, I do not want my tax dollars to fund the GAYA, Voodoo, or Santeria all which might be considered religions by government de nition. e solution is to restore education to the local level with no funding outside of the county and with this there would be local control. e Federal Courts must be limited in their jurisdiction. Amendment #8 NO Amendment #9 is the worst one of all. All must pay property taxes with no exceptions which would aid our e ort to abolish property taxes entirely, for only citizens that are currently plundered will have an interest in abolishing the tax. Again, the wording is deceptive and the amendment should read, are the citizens willing to pay the property taxes of those that we vote to exempt? Property taxes incorporate project #1 of the Communist Manifesto and should be abolished. ere is no such thing as property ownership as long as this tax continues. At a better time in our nations history, property was not taxed. Without property rights there can be no human rights. Taxes should be very low and government should be very limited. Government should only perform functions that the private sector cannot. ere are better and fairer ways to tax. Amendment #9 NO Amendment #10 reduces the revenue to local government and ends the unfair punishment of businesses. is amendment is not popular with local government which is exactly why we should continued on page 5A

Property should not be taxed! Amendment #10 YES Amendment #11 should be worded, will you vote to pay the property taxes of seniors that failed to limit government on their watch, did not nancially plan for retirement, and now desire to plunder those that are left to clean up the mess that they made with our country? Amendment #11 NO Amendment #12 should read, should immature college pranksters be placed on a governing board to render decisions regarding funding of the government schools? Generations of students have been indoctrinated with Marxism by Communist professors and union teachers. It is not wise to put the fox in charge of the hen house. Amendment #12 NO In conclusion, most of these Amendments should not exist and result from pusillanimous and craven politicians failure to do their job. Democratic decisions are historically bad, but in absence of responsible leaders, we must work with what we have. Any opportunity to strike back at government or limit our self serving and irresponsible leadership should be taken. ese amendments will only render short term relief and we will continue to wane as a state and country until the civic and moral responsibility is realized by the citizens. Freedom cannot exist without morality and it is a civic and moral duty to be involved with our government. Government is a necessary evil and must be limited. is requires attention on a weekly basis and the responsibility falls primarily on the head of household in a Christian nation. Lloyd W. Bailey, Jr., Gainesville, Florida Some Pastors have said publically they are unable to endorse the Republican Candidate for President due to his a liation to the Mormon Church. Lets consider the rami cations of such Godly instruction. Is this the criteria that should be used? President Obama declares he is a Christian. So does this settle the issue? Could it be that it might be more important to see what they have done and what they support before making this decision? e Bible tells us that we need to judge someone by the fruit they bear rather than to evaluate the intentions of their heart; thats Gods job. According to the Christian Coalition of Washington D.C. and published in their 2012 Christian Coalition Voter Guide, below are some di erences between our two candidates who both claim to be Christians. Wheres the fruit?Mitt Romney (R) Issues Barack Obama (D) Supports* Vouchers that allow to choice of private schools for children Opposes* Supports* Voluntary prayer in public schools and facilities Opposes* Opposes* Sex education for children in Kindergarten through 12th grade Supports* Opposes* Increasing federal income tax rates Supports* Supports* Permanent elimination of the Death Tax Opposes* Supports* Passage of the Balanced Budget Amendment to the US Constitution Opposes* Opposes* Use of taxpayer dollars to bailout private companies Supports* Supports* Appoint judges who adhere to a strict interpretation of the Constitution Opposes* Opposes* Further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms Supports* Opposes* Public funding of abortions Supports* Supports* Parental noti cation for abortions by minors Opposes* Supports* Maintain current federal law de ning marriage as 1 man and 1 woman Opposes* Supports* Prohibit military from forcing chaplains to perform same-sex marriages Supports* Supports* Repeal Obamacare that forces citizens to buy insurance or pay a tax Opposes* Opposes* Require religious groups to cover birth control & abortion in insurance Supports* Supports* Require welfare recipients to work or get job training Opposes* Opposes* Government subsidized in-state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens Supports* Supports* O cial U.

Romney because he is a Mormon the proposal to allow everyone an opportunity to review. He added that he has dealt with Progress in the past and has negotiated three contracts with them, concluding that Mr. Wagner is not going to go to certain points given that he is negotiating contracts with other cities. He stated his opinion is that if the City goes out for an RFP, the Council will not see the current gures again and what will be presented will not be as good as the current proposal. He added that he thought the savings was already present without having to take a gamble in the future and urged the Council to carefully review the proposal before committing to the RFP process and exposing the public to the risk. President Cason recalled that the Council had previously heard Mr. Finklea of FMPA state that there has never been, in the history of power, the market that there is today with so much excess power available on the grid. He stated that he appreciated the number of years the City has been with Progress Energy but that, at the same time, it is di cult not to test the waters elsewhere. He concluded he is not content paying the rate the same way he has been. Councilman Byrd responded that he understood President Casons position but also noted that Mt. Dora had already gone through the full RFP process and that Progress is o ering the same rates that they are o ering a bigger city. He suggested that the Council take a look at it. Mayor Hethcoat advised that while he did not want to throw it o the table yet, he agreed with President Cason that the City we might be able to do better. Councilman Goodman noted his understanding is that the RFP is a closed bid whereby each vendor will provide a bid that is kept closed throughout bidding. Interim City Manager Wingo added that once that process begins, the City cannot negotiate with someone individually. Councilman Goodman clari ed that the RFP process is scheduled to begin October 8th. President Cason summarized that the Council needed to decide on one of three options: (1) agree to enter into further negotiations with Progress Energy, (2) schedule a workshop to consider if the Council will stop the process and enter into negotiations with Progress Energy or (3) go out for an RFP. Vice President Fugate commented that Interim City Manager Wingo had noted that if the City begins the RFP process, it is foreclosed from considering any other o er. Interim City Manager Wingo responded that once the process begins, the City cannot have separate conversations about the bid that it has requested. Vice President Fugate con rmed that the bid being put out is not the same as the conversation currently being requested. He noted that it is very common in the RFP for the city to say that the process can be stopped at any time. He observed that it was said that in the past, the City has gone with Progress Energy and has received a better deal than it would have gotten in the RFP process. He noted he did not recall any time that the City went completely through to the end of the RFP process for wholesale power. He stated it is an intelligent decision based on what everyone should know as proper negotiating technique and is supported by the opinion of others as to what is going on with the market right now. Interim City Manager Wingo commented that given that she does not know the market that well, she can only go with what she is told. Councilman Ross asked what would be the draw back of scheduling a workshop as suggested by Councilman Byrd. Vice President Fugate responded that if there is a workshop the Council still wont know what to compare to. He stated that if the Council does nothing but accept the Mt. Dora contract, it will save $900,000. If the Council chooses the blended option, the City will save $800,000 over four years and if the City does not go through the RFP process, the Council will never know. He noted that the City received a better o er from Progress than was presented two meetings ago because Council did not accept the initial o er. President Cason stated if the City goes through RFP, Council will be prohibited from looking at o ers. City Attorney Koberlein clari ed that if the Council opts to go to RFP and receives an o er from Progress and decides to reject all the other o ers, it is not arbitrary but the action would invite argument and protest from the bidders. He stated that there is nothing wrong with having a workshop or continuing to go back and forth. City Attorney Koberlein also stated the condition in the o er does not mean the Council has to play by their rules. e city can make a counter o er that states it will disregard the requirement to negotiation exclusively with Progress. Councilman Goodman noted that if Council chose to schedule a workshop that would not stop continued on page 7A

Coach Brad Penney and Mrs. Kim Bishop transported the top 6 runners from the girls and boys teams for a fun- lled weekend at Epcot, and the ESPN World Wide Sport Center. Keith Eberhardt, Ben Wilson, Austin Pope, Cody Beckham, Kevin Carswell, and Bobby Trammel were quali ed from the boys team and MacKenzie Kirkbride, Brooke Allen, Lauren Bartholemy, and Jessica Mitchell went from the girls team. e team left at 10:30 a.m. prepared to run at the Disney 5K run. Unfortunately, when the team arrived, lightning and thunder delayed the meet, and it was eventually canceled. Even through this disappointing development, the team kept high spirits as they headed for a dinner at CiCis, compliments of Coach Brad. e next morning, the team woke up early ready to make up for the miles lost the day before. After the morning run the team set o for Epcot. e team ew together through California, on the Disney ride Soaring, traveled to Mars, then traveled through China, Morocco, Mexico, Italy and France, and went through time. e overall experience was great. We bonded, and became stronger as a team. We were all close to begin with, but this just helped us grow as a team, commented Brooke Allen, Cedar Key Junior. e team is now preparing for their annual home meet, the Cedar Key Invitational. e team welcomes all fans and onlookers to attend and cheer them on. Go Sharks! e Bene ts of Accelerated Reading By Mikayla Pope, Shark Correspondent At Cedar Key School in both the elementary and secondary levels students are encouraged and asked to read and AR (Accelerated Reader) test on books from various genres. Recently ve Cedar Key High School students were asked if they understood the bene ts of AR testing. Four out of the ve students dislike the testing and never even realized there were bene ts. is is the case for the majority of high school students, so a question popped into our minds, What are the bene ts of AR Testing? Junior, Lauren Bartholemy, gave her opinion, I think that it teaches work ethic, enhances the ability of reading quickly, and helps students retain information which is an important tool in life. We believe most will nd that they enjoy reading when they dont have the pressures of testing and deadlines attached to it. ough AR testing is unpopular the truth is Accelerated Reader helps students and teachers keep up with the books students have their noses in, the genres they enjoy, and the reading skills they form. So, the next time you nd yourself taking an AR test think about the di erent ways this reading-testing program bene ts you in life! e Life of A Cross Country RunnerBy Sarah Bartholemy, Shark CorrespondentBEEP, BEEP, BEEEEEEP!!!! at would be the incredibly annoying sound of my alarm going o every day at 5:30 in the morning. Why I wake up this early you ask. I run cross country. We practice every morning at 6:00 a.m. is practice includes weightlifting, drills, and a three to ve mile run. As you can imagine, this takes a huge toll on your body. To be a runner you must get at least eight hours of sleep every night, and drink plenty of water before practice in the morning. Not only does it take a toll on your body, but on your schedule too. I have to make sure that Im getting all of my school work done and maintaining good grades in between meets and practices. I chose to do cross country ve years ago, the summer before 6th grade. To this day I'm not quite sure why I chose this sport, but I'm glad that I did. Cross country has taught me self discipline, the ability to push myself, and it has gotten me in shape. I also love my teammates, and we always have a blast at our meets. We all motivate each other to try and make sure that we do our very best at meets. I can't forget about our incredible coach, Mr. Brad Penney. is is actually his twenty- fth year coaching cross country! He always pushes us to be the best that we can be, and he is always ready for practice. Also, don't think about getting McDonalds after a meet, the menu will always be Subway, one of Coach Brad's major rules. I hope to continue my cross country career throughout high school and keep pushing myself. I love this sport, and our cross country family.Pre-K Pizza PartyBy Becky Russo, Shark CorrespondentPre-k students at Cedar Key School recently had a pizza party to learn about sharing and caring. is theme ties in to the book they just read, A Little Red Hen Made a Pizza. e students were eager to have this celebration. Ms. Elaine stated, "Students were so excited. ey were able to pick toppings for their very own pizzas that they made." Ms. Elaine also commented, e inspiration for this project came from our unit this month about friends. A little red hen made a pizza but none of her friends wanted to help her." is project was chosen to help students understand the concept of sharing and caring by having them make their own pizza dough as a group and clean up as a group. What a fun way for students to learn about sharing and caring!Saying Goodbye to VolleyballBy Molly Gordon, Shark CorrespondentAfter 9 games, home and away, long bus rides and fast-food adventures, volleyball season is unfortunately slowing down and coming to an end. Although Lady Sharks varsity team wasnt as successful as the middle school team, the high school players have made some great memories and always attempted to play our hardest. With Haley Simpson and I being seniors, its only natural for us to have wanted this season to be the best. As disappointed as I am that weve only won two out of our nine games, I still wouldnt trade playing for the Sharks and with my teammates for anything. I de nitely couldnt think of any better coach for our team than Ms. Cheryl Allen. Ms. Cheryl, who has been my volleyball coach for four years out of the six years Ive played, has been an awesome role model and encourager. I couldnt even begin to count the amount of memories, goofy and hilarious as well as sentimental, that weve made together, and I want to thank her for never giving up on us no matter what. Even though we dont win our games consistently, we have FUN, and to me, thats all that matters. With only 2 home games left, and districts, Ive come to realize that playing Volleyball for Cedar Key has been one of the most memorable experiences, and Im more than happy that I chose to play all of my middle, and high school years. At our game on Tuesday night against Trenton, the varsity teams showed up ready to play but unfortunately werent successful. In the rst set, the team seemed to get in over their heads, lost too many serves, and lost the set: 12-25. In the second set, the sharks held their heads high and tried to pull through for a win, digging balls and defending the court but lost the set: 9-25. In the nal set, the girls played hard and attempted to make a come-back but still lost it with a score of 11-25. Cedar Key does battle with Williston in the rst HI-Q match of the year!By Eli Glaze, Shark Correspondent Cedar Key School competed in their rst HI-Q match of the year against Williston on Tuesday, October 2, 2012. On the Junior Varsity team we have Phoebe Cahours the team captain, Larry Twinam, Jesse Brown, and Noah Webster who won against their Williston rival. On the Varsity team we have Brook Allen, the captain, Taryn Epperson, Laia Gore, and Maddy Riley. HI-Q is a team-based, quiz bowl style competition. Two teams of four go head to head in three ten-minute sessions in which a variety questions are asked to each team. A normal (or toss-up) question is asked to both teams, and the teams then have ve seconds for anyone on either team to buzz in and answer the question.

He advised the Council could have a motion to keep this on the table and have further discussion about the best rates and in the mean time continue to do research. He then made a motion to continue discussions with Progress and schedule a workshop with them at the earliest convenience. Councilman Byrd seconded. Discussion is held on scheduling. e motion was amended to specify the workshop be held Monday, October 4th at 4:00 pm. On vote, the motion carried unanimously, 5-0. ITEM 5 NEW BUSINESS A. SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATION: RELAY FOR LIFE KICKOFF B. SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATION: UNITY IN THE COMMUNITY C. SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATION: SHALOM, ALL IN ONE VOICE D. SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATION: WILLISTON CROSS COUNTRY TRACK MEETS Mayor Hethcoat advised these applications were being brought to Council because the applicants are asking for a fee waiver. President Cason con rmed there is a clear procedure as to how the applications are handled and moved that the four applications be approved as presented. Councilman Goodman seconded and the motion passed unanimously, 5-0. E. REVIEW/APPROVAL CONTRACT: MONTEREY BOATS LAND LEASE AGREEMENT Vice President Fugate moved to approve the land lease with the removal of the renewal paragraph (paragraph 25) to make it a one year lease. Councilman Goodman seconded. On vote, the motion carries unanimously, 5-0. F. ORDINANCE: POWER COST ADJUSTMENT ORDINANCE 626 President Cason reviewed Ordinance 626. Mr. Stephen Bloom advised that the ordinance will adjust the power cost formula. He stated that Severn Trent had looked at the tari sheets, ordinance, etc. and the gures were not matching and that is the reason a new formula was developed. He advised the formula was developed looking at other cities as compared to Williston with slight modi cations and uses a formula that provides for appropriate adjustments to be made if there are huge variances. Vice President Fugate observed that the ordinance is amending 40-144 in its entirety that he had a question as to whether it should also strike section 40.142(7) about adjusting the base rate. Mr. Bloom stated that the idea was to cover all the past ordinances in this ordinance. Vice President Fugate advised that there is another section that may need to be deleted. Interim City Manager Wingo stated that Mr. Finklea of FMPA worked this item and it may need to be pulled for him to review it further. President Cason noted on the establishment of the rate stabilization fund that when the bulk power cost adjustment was reformulated there was $300,000 in excess funds from overcharges and there was a question as to whether part of that could be set aside as a rate stabilization fund. He asked if including that into the formula begins to build excess revenues in. Mr. Bloom advised that the intent is to put money into the formula to keep the rate lower during a time that weather created an excessively high invoice. e Council would approve whether to put money into the formula and it could be brought as an agenda item to Council for approval in order to enact that portion of the formula. President Fugate moved to approve Ordinance 626 on rst reading and requested that sta to look at the possibility of deleting section 40.142(7). Councilman Goodman seconded. On vote, the motion passed unanimously, 5-0. Sta was directed to ask Mr. Finklea to review section 40.142. G. DISCUSSION AND DIRECTION: GOLF CART ORDINANCE Councilman Goodman requested to postpone the item to next meeting. He stated he needed more time to present it to Council. He advised he has come across more information to present and directed sta to bring it to Council next Tuesday. H. REVIEW/APPROVAL CONTRACT: WILLISTON CROSSINGS CONTRACT CJ Zimoski, Public Works and Utilities Director addressed the Council and advised that due to the impact fees being waived, the City agreed to provide the labor to install the electric infrastructure at the Williston Crossings where, in turn, on the ownership lots, the Crossings would provide the materials for those sections. President Cason asked Mr. Zimoski to explain the bene t of the City doing the work for the Crossings. Mr. Zimoski advised that it reduces the cost of infrastructure on the ownership lots because as part of the agreement, the Crossings is providing all materials and with the exception of labor and the City will bear zero in costs on the ownership lots. Interim City Manager Wingo added that the City owns the capital as an extension of its electric business. City Attorney Koberlein advised that his understanding is that there was a brief agreement entered into with the old owner of Williston Crossings prior to his bankruptcy which did not carry on with the land. Blackwell claimed nonperformance because they did not see the conditions had been performed. City Attorney Koberlein added that he did not believe the agreement was in compliance with the State Developers Act either. City Planner Hall advised that there are zoning maps that show the di erence between rental and owner lots. Vice President Fugate advised it is acceptable with him for the old agreement to be void but wanted to ensure that some exhibit exists that identify what lots are rental versus owner. He concluded that the City obligation is di erent with each and that something should be included to identify the two types of lots. He con rmed with City Attorney Koberlein that a title search has not been completed. In response to inquiry about section 4.1, City Attorney Koberlein explained that section 4.1 allows the utility crew to use discretion as to where to place hardware. President Cason concluded that should be made part of the agreement as opposed to just being part of the exhibit that di erentiates between rental and ownership. Vice President Fugate moved to approve the Williston Crossings Developers Agreement with the addition of an exhibit fee that clearly delineates the rental area versus ownership area to be signed by all parties with an interest in the property based upon a title search. Councilman Byrd seconded the motion. Vice President Fugate suggested that the developer pay for the title search. On vote, the motion passed unanimously, 5-0. I. RESOLUTION: CLARIFICATION OF CITY CLERK DUTIES Interim City Manager Wingo advised that since she has been here there have been questions about the Clerks duties and the City Manager with merged and overlap in duties that create confusion. With the amount of change Williston has had, she concluded it is appropriate to make clear the duties consistent with the Charter. She concluded that her view is that if the City Clerk is going to work for the Council, then the duties should be more in line with traditional duties. City Attorney Koberlein, at the request of President Cason, stated his views and advised that he stands by his statement on page 111 and believes that whatever the Council does it should be memorialized better, noting that he did not favor the Clerk being all the way under the City Manager because it caused legal problems with the Charter. He stated the Charter is the citizens voice on the day to day activities and they have voiced what they wanted the Clerk to be doing. At a minimum, the Clerk should be doing those things autonomous from the City Manager. If the Council wants the Clerk to be entirely autonomous there is no problem with that either. Clerk Taylor advised she and the City Manager have discussed the history of the positions and she believes in being collegial and collaborative with sta to assist in any way possible. However, she felt it is important to clarify the duties for the sake of responsiveness and accountability. Vice President Fugate stated that the prior change occurred in 2009 and was prompted by a desire of the City Manager and Council to restructure things so the City Manager had more control. He added he was city attorney at the time and was asked to see if there was a way to interpret the Charter to allow the Clerk to report to the City Manager. He stated that he has come to the conclusion that this was a mistake and has brought it up to Council to return to the idea that the Clerk is autonomous. He advised that it provides a system of checks and balances and that his recommendation is to go back to the prior arrangement. Councilman Byrd concurred with Vice President Fugate. Councilman Ross stated he had nothing to add. Councilman Goodman observed that the recommended action is to adopt a resolution clarifying the duties or provide a di erent direction to sta as needed to provide clear direction. He stated that when he reviewed at the job description the City Clerks duties shall henceforth be those as outlined in the City Charter. He asked if this is a full time job as listed in the Charter. He stated that if this is the only thing the City Clerk does since the position is being reviewed, it should give clear de nition and that the Clerk has ability where he or she can do other things. President Cason stated that in his conversation with Mark Durbin, he asked about this topic and that Clerk Taylor was there and from a City Manager standpoint it seemed to justify Mr. Colemans feelings about the position that generally speaking in Mr. Durbins experience where the Clerk and City Manager answer directly to the Council that those cities experienced more strife. He added that Council cannot consider the individuals but needs to consider the positions. He asked if these duties enough to justify a full time position or are there other duties that have to be added. Councilman Goodman noted the clause in the Charter that states performs other such duties as required by the law, the City Manager and Council. Mayor Hethcoat recalled that the job description has evolved but for years the City had a Clerk that did it all. at was accepted and the City would get a Manager and get a Clerk and now there is an e ort to try and get it back on the right track. Interim City Manager Wingo stated that she worked in three cities where the City Clerk was a Charter O cer and in two of those cities, the Clerk reported to the City Manager. In Ocala, the Clerk reported to the Council and Council can talk to Scotty Andrews to nd out about the problems. She advised the members should think long term and those next steps need to continue to be made. She stated she has tried to stay as neutral as possible but her preference is that the City Clerk reports to the City Manager. She stated that the Council can clearly separate the duties so that the Clerk does only Clerk duties and the Manager does only Manager duties or the Council can have the Clerk report to the Manager so that the Manager can utilize that resource. Mrs. Debra Jones addressed the Council and stated that she was part of the Council during the time the position was changed and it was all written because of personalities but it should be written according to the needs of the City. She advised that she believed that is the appropriate place to note those duties by amending the HR manual to outline her duties and advised that she believed the Clerk should report to the Council and supported the checks and balances referenced by Vice President Fugate. She stated she was in favor of placing the Clerk under the City Manager at the time it occurred but like Mr. Fugate, she can see the need for the checks and balances. Clerk Taylor voiced her agreement with Mrs. Jones and Vice President Fugate stating that the Charter O cers in these positions should be of the caliber that they can collaborate and work together. She advised there are a lot of things she has done that are not covered under this description just to help sta She concluded that anyone working in this position should be willing to do that and if they are not willing to do that, they should not be working here. She concluded that it is important based upon the history to have that balance and stability built in. President Cason asked if the City Manager and City Clerk could work out a job description that addressed the City Managers concerns and at the same time allowed the City Clerk to report directly to the City Council. e Clerk and City Manager con rmed that there was a job description that had been developed to that e ect that had previously been provided to the Clerk by the City Manager. C ouncilman Goodman clari ed that the City Clerk reports to the Council but currently the Clerk reports to the City Manager for day to day operations. President Cason con rmed with City Manager Wingo that Resolution 2012-22 would resolve that by stating that the City Clerk would have responsibilities according to the Charter. City Attorney Koberlein agreed with that summary as well and added that he did not think the citizens wanted the Clerk to do only what is listed in the Charter and the way to monitor this would be by continuing to amend the HR personnel manual. Councilman Byrd moved to approve Resolution 2012-22. Councilman Ross seconded. Mayor Hethcoat stated that there seem to be di erent areas to work out asked if the Council would be addressing these by making changes in the HR policy. President Cason stated that he would like to see it state that there may be other duties and responsibilities at the speci c direction of the Council as provided by the job description and have the duty description brought back to the Council for approval as a developed by the City Manager and City Clerk. President Cason stated that the Resolution can expand upon Item F by stating there are other duties and responsibilities at the discretion of the Council that would be the responsibility of the City Clerk. Councilman Goodman stated he had the same issue and would not be voting for this motion as it is. He advised he would prefer it be tabled have the parties work together to come up with language that is acceptable. Mrs. Debra Jones agreed that she did not believe the duties of the Clerk needed to be in the Resolution but that the Council may want the resolution to refer to the HR policy and have the HR policy outline the duties that can be changed as needed by the Council. Vice President Fugate stated that he would like to ask the City Manager and City Clerk to put together a revised job description. He then moved to lay the motion on the table until next meeting. Councilman Goodman seconded and the motion passed unanimously, 5-0. Vice President Fugate stated he would like the Council to agree that it is giving speci c direction to the City Manager and City Clerk to bring back a job description that is revised at next meeting with the intent to refer to it in the resolution. e members agreed by consensus that the City Clerk and the City Manager would work together to develop a job description that is revised to be brought back with this resolution. e members also clari ed with one another that the resolution will refer to job description so that duties can be modi ed, when needed. ITEM 6 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION None. ITEM 7 CITY MANAGERS ANNOUNCEMENTS ITEM 8 COUNCILORS ANNOUNCEMENTS Vice President Fugate asked if there was a process regarding Mr. Byrds resignation from the Pension Committee. City Clerk Taylor advised that the vacancy could be advertised and applications made available. President Cason stated that there are currently three sitting members on the Airport Committee. Councilman Goodman stated he has a full plate and announced his resignation from the Airport Committee. Councilman Byrd stated that he had discovered previously that these positions can take a long time to ll. President Cason posed a question about residency requirements for the Chapter 185 Board members and noted that item should be placed on a future agenda. Mayor Hethcoat stated he has been working on the Levy County Veterans Day Parade and festivities. e parade committee is asking for each City to enter a vehicle or entity that will honor vets. He advised he would like to see the City of Williston enter something in the parade and have all Council participating if at all possible. e event will be held November 12th at 11 am. President Cason stated that one item the Council did not consider after Mr. Byrds installment was the Council O cer positions of President and Vice President. He stated that he felt if would need to be considered unless the Council did not it warranted further consideration at this time. e member agreed the positions should remain with the currently appointed President and Vice President. ITEM 9 ADJOURNMENT Councilman Ross moved to adjourn and the meeting was adjourned at 9:29 pm. Jason S. Cason, City Council President Frances V.

He threw the baseball! said Chandler Crooms. He was Jiwan James of the Phillies farm team, and hes home at the end of the season. At Charon Croft Bentons request, James recently visited the 3rd grade classrooms of Hillary Cribbs and Michelle Ruiz to play Math Baseball. e students in both classes split up into two teams, the boys versus the girls. Cribbs and Ruiz had made up a set of math questions which James read o one at a time when each team was up. e game helped us learn our multiplication and division facts as well as work on our word problems, said Brianna Butler. If a player answered a problem correctly, s/he went to 1st base and continued progressing until scoring a run. An incorrect answer was an out. We had taught all the concepts, all the information, so this gave our students a fun way to see if they really had internalized the information, said Ruiz. Aidet Arreola thought James was nice. I thank him for coming to visit us. Dustin Porter said, It was neat that I nally got to see a baseball player. Bailey Francis agreed, glad to see someone who plays a di erent sport than he plays [soccer]. Elizabeth Bloom said she was also glad to see a baseball player instead of a football player. Bentons son Nolan was happy when he threw me the ball because I got the right answer. Some students had a connection with James. He was on my uncles [Tyrie Boyer] baseball team at Williston High School, said Miles Beville. My brother [Jerry Mills] plays baseball and so does Jiwan, said Tori Mills. Samantha Carswell was thrilled James was there because he plays for the Phillies, and the Phillies is my favorite baseball team. Samantha Padilla thought they all had fun playing with James. It was a reward for our hard work, said Amber McGillicuddy. Hes a good baseball playerthe best in the whole wide world! noted Jennifer Curiel. It was a very special privilege to have someone from Williston like Jiwan, who is very busy, take time out of his schedule, said Cribbs. But thats just like James, giving back to the community by spending time with young people. He does it almost every time he returns to Williston, and this wont be the last time. ird grader Christyuna Caulwell said it best. Hes a great baseball player and a great person.With his baseball in one hand and his stack of math questions in the other, Jiwan James, an alumnus of Williston High School, moderates Baseball Math for the 3rd graders in Hillary Cribbss and Michelle Ruizs classes. James plays for the Philadelphia Phillies. Nolan Benton, a 3rd grader in Hillary Cribbss class, waits for Jiwan James, who plays for the Phillies, to autograph his mini-Louisville Slugger bat. James played Baseball Math with Nolan and his classmates and the students in Michelle Ruizs class. $99.00 Customer Installation Charge. 36-Month Monitoring Agreement required at $35.99 per month ($1,295.64).

Catching a trophy largemouth bass is the dream of anyone who shes for this valuable game sh, which is the most-sought species in North America. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) new TrophyCatch Program (TrophyCatchFlorida.com), was launched Mon. Oct. 1, will increase opportunities for anglers shing in Florida to ful ll that dream, while rewarding them for helping make other anglers dreams come true by letting their trophy swim for another lucky angler to catch. Gov. Rick Scott understands the importance of recreational shing to Florida, which annually generates more than $8 billion in economic impact and supports more than 75,000 jobs. In Florida, freshwater bass alone annually provide anglers more than 14 million days of healthy outdoor recreation and generate approximately $1.25 billion in economic impact (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 2006). e FWCs management programs are designed to provide enjoyment for even more anglers and thus increase tourism and economic bene ts. TrophyCatch will help accomplish that and document progress. TrophyCatch is an innovative program to reward anglers for being great resource stewards by legally catching and releasing trophy largemouth bass, Scott said. TrophyCatch includes three tiers to encourage reporting and live-releasing bass heavier than 8 pounds that are caught in Florida waters. Bass 8 to 9.9 pounds (Lunker Club), or those 10 to 12.9 pounds (Trophy Club) that are caught, documented and released can be reported online at TrophyCatchFlorida.com anytime of the year. All that is required to qualify for great prizes are photos of the entire sh on a scale with the weight visible, and one of the sh on a tape measurer, showing the length. Bass that are heavier than 13 pounds and are caught between Oct. 1 and April 30 each year must be certi ed by FWC sta to verify their weight and take genetic samples. Certi ed catches that are released or provided to FWC for research will be entered into the Hall of Fame Club, making the angler eligible for great prizes. e World Fishing Network is partnering with the FWC to promote and manage the trophy bass website. TrophyCatch will enable biologists to manage lakes and rivers better by providing valuable incentives to anglers for reporting and releasing their catches of trophy bass, said Tom Champeau, director of the FWCs Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. e information will be used to evaluate and improve management strategies that produce more and larger bass. Numerous industry sponsors are providing prizes to encourage conservation of these valuable sh. Phoenix Boats is o ering a boat and trailer to a randomly selected angler who registers for the program. Anglers who legally catch, photo-document and attest to releasing trophy bass in Florida are eligible for prizes. Bass Pro Shops and Dicks Sporting Goods are providing gift cards, Rapala Lures is providing coupons to redeem on their website, and Bass King Clothing is giving away custom shing gear. Other sponsors such as Pro Line Custom Rods, US Reels and GlenLau.com are providing extra incentives for Hall of Fame anglers, who also receive a free berglass replica of their catch produced by New Wave Taxidermy. e biggest bass of the year will earn a Super Bowllike ring, from the American Outdoors Fund, for the angler who catches it. If it is caught in Osceola County, the Kissimmee Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) will award the lucky angler $10,000. In addition, if the angler is on a guided shing trip, the guide will receive $2,500 from the CVB. It is important for anglers to read and understand all the rules and details about rewards, which may change during the year, since they are provided by various sponsors, said Champeau (see TrophyCatchFlorida.com). e governor isnt alone in touting TrophyCatch. For decades, millions of anglers have learned how to sh from the true legends in the sport: Bill Dance, Jimmy Houston and Roland Martin. ese icons of the shing world have combined forces to continue their dedication to conservation and angler education. 3Legends announced this week that they o cially endorse TrophyCatch. Florida produces a lot of trophy bass, and TrophyCatch will provide biologists with critical data while o ering attractive incentives for anglers to properly handle and release their catch, said Martin. Houston praised this conservation e ort as a great partnership with industry to protect our sheries and promote shing. Catching a trophy-size largemouth bass is the dream of anyone who shes, and TrophyCatch will help anglers shing in Florida to ful ll that dream, added Dance.

With the beautiful lands of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Key National Wildlife Refuges, the pristine rivers, and 54 miles of Gulf Coast it isnt any wonder certain species have made their homes in Levy County. is week proved to be one of the most extraordinary adventures I have ever experienced as I was introduced, (with assistance from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission), to a primeval creature living in the Suwannee River. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, (FWC) has been conducting a study on Macrochelys temminckii or the common name of alligator snapping turtle. FWCs catch and release program on this turtle species was to gather data on certain areas of the river, turtle numbers, sex, weight, length, and possible territorial range. Over the past few months Kevin Enge and Travis omas of FWC have been placing turtle traps in certain locations along the Suwannee River to study characteristics of the alligator snapping turtle. As FWCs boat made its way upriver, the early morning was covered by an extra thick fog that was supposed to have burned o by 10 AM, but this river fog didnt clear until noon making our boat ride a bit eerie. Trap after trap was checked, (24 traps had been set the day before), and by the end of the afternoon a total of nine alligator snapping turtles had been sized, weighed, numbered and micro-chipped for future studies. Without any harm to the turtles during FWCs exam and data collection, each one was returned to the same area of the river where it had been extracted. is particular trapping session was very productive with turtles ranging in size from 15 pounds up to a large male weighing over 104 pounds (see photo) and several females weighing 50 to 55 pounds, which is about the maximum size for females. e alligator snapping turtle is the largest freshwater snapping turtle in the world and lives lurking on the bottom swamps, lakes, and rivers. In Florida, there are two species of snapping turtles with the alligator snapping turtle being the largest of the two species. is turtle rarely ever will be found on land and spends its entire life submerged underwater only coming up for air every 40-50 minutes. ey are scavengers and predators, feeding on “ sh, snakes, carrion and waterfowl. As many of you know, any day spent on our rivers is an amazing day! To recognize and appreciate that we have these extraordinary and amazing creature living among us is also amazing. Even though alligator snapping turtles are rarely seen, it is nice to know we share the neighborhood with them. My hope would be for these creatures to be around for others to appreciate centuries from now. Go out and experience Levy Countys beautiful nature, we live in a beautiful wonderland.

Everybody had to have a cowboy hat. My mom couldnt stand to see us go without, or stand any more of our begging, so she took our grocery money and ran my little brother Heath and I down to the Southland Mall. We each picked out one of those fancy straw hats with the pre-bent brim. ey hung low over our eyes giving us that lonesome trail hand look. Mom got so caught up in the excitement she said, Go pick you out one of those feathered hat bands too!Ž I grabbed one that looked like a peacock in full plume. Before we left I noticed a rack of pleather jackets left over from the winter selection, made out of some sort of plastic and rubber leather substitute. Sweet,Ž I declared, Look Mama, these aint but four dollars.Ž I think deep down she knew it was August, but she just couldnt help herself. eres never been a She eld from our side of the tree that could pass up a deal. So we each got one, agreeing that eating was way over rated anyhow. When we got home I couldnt wait to run down the street and show my new duds to this older Jr. High girl I was sweet on. Momma insisted I take little Heath. I hu ed, but thumped his ear and told him to grab his boyong jacket. (I had taken to calling them that because its the sound they made if you dropped one. ey were bad about bouncing right back up you.) I reckon we looked mighty odd making that sweaty walk over to her house, but I remember feeling right proud. I had “ nally found my true identity. Somewhere inside that sticky rubber jacket was the real me. Id be Bud, and she could be Sissy; just like in the movie. For some reason Sissy didnt feel much like coming out that day though, at least that what she said from behind the deadbolt. She said we should be going before her neighbors came home. I didnt understand why that should matter, but I assured her wed be back next week when we got our new boots to match. en I thumped Heaths ear, and we moseyed back down that lonesome trail home. Youre probably thinking,  at Guy sure is goofy.Ž Well, I say, Let him without regrets cast the “ rst stone. If my jackets rubber, yours is glue, whatever you say bounces o me and sticks to you.Ž BOYONG! Surely youve had periods of your life that you look back on and wonder, What was I thinking?Ž A better question might be, What am I doing now that Ill say that about later?Ž Without God we all tend to be a little ” akey. e Bible says in Proverbs 21:2 that every man is right in his own eyes. Even I thought I was wrong once, but of course I was mistaken. It doesnt take a brain scientist or a rocket surgeon to tell you that everyone couldnt be right all the time. I get the feeling somewhere out there somebodys blasting others when theyre actually the ones whove bumped their head. Sobering thought, when you consider it may be you. (I hope its not me right now.) is life can be quite a journey. Five years down the road our whole set of ideals could change. ats why we must keep the Bible as our foundation and “ nal authority to the absolute truth. If were seeking God and His Word, line upon line, precept upon precept, I believe its possible to live out the rest of our days without straying o into too many more ditches. In the process, maybe we could cut each other a little slack. Surely we could over the non-essentials? I think God does. He knows were all learning and growing day by day. Hes not falling o the throne because I dont have it all together yet. Even a Pharisee would stop and pull his mule out of the ditch once in a while. (Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7 KJV) In those times a persons goo“ ness crosses the line and moves over into the area of sin, a little correction may be in order. But even then we would be wise to “ rst consult Galatians 6:1. (Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. KJV)But anywayI never did get those fancy cowboy boots. We opted for more of a steady meal plan, and a cheaper pair of rubber rain boots. I guess it was just as well. at girl never would return my calls after that. I didnt mind. Heath and I were having too much fun bouncing around town in our new rubber get-ups.„ Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.
