He then excitedly enrolled at University of Florida and was already hard at work to follow his dream career in biomedical engineering. He had a great future planned out, a new girlfriend and life was good. On Oct. 15 at St. Augustine Catholic Church in Gainesville the young man was described at a service in his memory as a happy and outgoing person. His family and friends were there mourning, praying and memorializing the life and now con rmed death of the young man whose body was found on Oct. 12 in the Gulf Hammock Hunting Clubs 25,000 acre property by two hunters looking for rewood. What the hunters thought was remains of a deer ended up being the body of Christian Aguilar. Today, Tuesday Oct. 23, Christian Aguilar is being buried after a funeral mass in Miami. On Sept. 20 Aguilar went to Best Buy in Gainesville with a fellow graduate of Doral Academy, 18-year-old Pedro Bravo to buy a Kanye West CD. Bravo had enrolled at Santa Fe College after his graduation along with his ex-girlfriend, Erika Friman. at was the last time anyone saw or heard from Aguilar. Aguilars parents, Carlos and Claudia Aguilar, came to Gainesville to nd their son. As searches continued people from the Gainesville area, Miami, and from his high school, Doral Academy, searched for Christian. Being the last person to be seen with Aguilar, Bravo was questioned and stated that he and Aguilar had an argument over Friman, whom Aguilar was now dating. Bravo said he pushed Aguilar out of his 04 Chevy Trailblazer SUV and left him unconscious in the parking lot. Bravo was held for not giving medical aid to a person in need and police searched his SUV and home for evidence as to Aguilars whereabouts. Blood was discovered in the vehicle and sent for testing. Aguilars backpack was found inside a suitcase in Bravos closet. ere was also a receipt dated a few days before the argument showing Bravos purchase of a shovel and duct tape.Body of UF Student Aguilar Found in Gulf Hammock Buried TodayHis Father Hospitalized for Stress Raleigh Drug Bust Removes Convicted Career Felons from Streets e Levy County Sheri s O ce and the US Marshals Service Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Julian Christopher Howard, 32, and Arnett Clarence Bryant Jr., 29, both of Archer, in Raleigh last ursday, Oct. 18, for possession and sale of drugs. According to a report by Major Evan Sullivan, the Levy County Sheri s O ce Drug Task Force began the investigation in February 2012. Howard is considered to be a mid level drug dealer in the Raleigh area. Howard is known to sale crack cocaine, powder cocaine and marijuana. e rst phase of the investigation was concluded but other arrests are expected. A warrant was signed for Howard on Sept. 27 and included charges of sale of crack cocaine, possession of crack cocaine and unlawful use of a two-way communication device. Howard went on the run but his luck ran out ursday night. Members of the Drug Task Force and the Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force did a surveillance at a residence on NE 190 Ave and walked miles in order to arrest a violent fugitive. Howard was located at the residence and he was doing what he does best, which is selling narcotics. Members of the Task Force were only a few feet away when the men were making drug deals and had no idea that their freedom was coming to an end. e Task Force members reverted to their training when dealing with felony o enders and ordered the men out of the vehicle at gunpoint. e suspects complied and the arrest went without incident. Major Evan Sullivan stated, e arrest was successful due to the element of surprise, great strategic planning and the willingness of the members to go the extra mile. Two drug dealers have been removed from the streets. Julian Christopher Howard Arnett Clarence Bryant Jr. Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateIt was a little much when President Barack Obama said that he was "o ended" by the suggestion that his administration would try to deceive the public about what happened in Benghazi. What has this man not deceived the public about? Remember his pledge to cut the de cit in half in his rst term in o ce? is was followed by the rst trillion dollar de cit ever, under any President of the United States -followed by trillion dollar de cits in every year of the Obama administration. Remember his pledge to have a "transparent" government that would post its legislative proposals on the Internet several days before Congress was to vote on them, so that everybody would know what was happening? is was followed by an ObamaCare bill so huge and passed so fast that even members of Congress did not have time to read it. Remember his claims that previous administrations had arrogantly Libya and Lies continued on page 2AChristian Aguilar Pedro Bravo By Kathy HilliardEditorIncluded in a non-agenda item at last weeks regular meeting the Levy County Board of County Commissioners proposed a bonus for county employees who have not received a pay increase for ve years. e nal vote could not be taken even though the idea proposed by Commissioner Ryan Bell was well received by all on the board. Commissioner Bell noted that this is the rst year they had cut bene ts but would like to also give back with a one-time $600 bonus before the holiday this year. By using a one-time separate check bonus system it does not obligate the county for social security, retirement and other ongoing expenses in order to give back to the employees and sta for a job well done. But whether this can be done is another question. is would include all constitutional sta and o cers including the Sheri s o ce and the board. According to County Coordinator Fred Moody, is was not budgeted for. In talking to payroll and nance, somewhere during year, because the constitutionals didnt budget for it either or the SO (Sheri s O ce) or anybody else, this would come out of their budgets for their employees Commissioners Try to Give Bonuses to County Employees Another Meeting Set for Oct. 31 Florida windmill, dry trough.

What we are used to seeing across the pastures of Florida are iconic leftovers that produce water for livestock with the small steady ow of wind Florida receives, except during hurricanes of course. But that other windmill pictured is part of the green revolution we are paying for through the nose that works quite well in the central states of America producing electricity for that area; albeit, by using a lot of windmills to do it. Problem is, they are failing; in the millions of dollars they are failing. e big push by the Obama administration to pick and choose green energy ventures to build green jobs for a green economy is producing about as many jobs and economic dollars as the empty water trough in the Florida pasture. But the Obama administration continues to burn through tax dollars to keep on trying. If you think all the talk about green business failures by Obama is over the top, below is a list from the National Center for Policy Analysiss Environmental Blog.

Taylor, Amanda Williston VOP GRAND THEFT $10,000 BOND Service Jacks Land Williston PD NewsWilliston Man Arrested for Attacking Elderly NeighborOn Friday October 19 Williston Police Department o cers were summoned to 34 Williston Arms Drive in reference to a report of a physical altercation in progress. Upon arrival the o cers learned that Johnny Jackson, 55, of Williston became upset with a neighbor in the complex and started making verbal threats to harm him. An 83-year-old neighbor, who is familiar with Jackson, asked him to calm down and return home at which point Jackson turned his anger towards the senior citizen and kicked her on the left thigh causing a noticeable bruise. When a bystander who witnessed the attack of the elderly lady told Jackson to leave the elderly victim alone, Jackson turned his aggression to the bystander and proceeded to choke and severely beat him causing multiple non-life threatening injuries. Jackson was located and placed under arrest for Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Battery on a Person over 65 Years of Age. After being processed, Jackson was transported to the Levy County Jail. On Saturday October 20, 2012 Jacksons bond was set at $120,000.00 at his rst appearance. information provided by Dennis Strow, Williston Chief of Police. Howard was arrested on the Levy County Fugitive warrant and with additional charges. In Howards lap as he sat in the vehicle were 5.6 grams of crack cocaine and 6/10 of a gram of powder cocaine. Bryant had 2 grams of crack cocaine and 2.7 grams of marijuana in his lap. Howard and Bryant are both convicted felons and no strangers to law enforcement. Howard has an extensive criminal history as a juvenile and an adult. Howard has been arrested for cocaine, battery on a police o cer, robbery, weapons charges and homicide. Bryant has been convicted for domestic battery, child neglect, resisting arrest and has been arrested nineteen (19) times for felony charges and nine (9) misdemeanor charges. e Levy County Drug Task Force agents have submitted and arrested ninety-two wanted fugitives to the US Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force this year. Major Sullivan explained that once a Levy County case has been adopted by the US Marshals Service the federal Task Force will pay the overtime accrued by Levy County deputies. In economic lean times this Task Force has been a Godsend, said Major Sullivan. It has saved Levy County taxpayers thousands of dollars in overtime. information submitted by Major Evan Sullivan, LCSO Drug Bust continued from page 1ACommissioners continued from page 1A just the way payroll does today. But at some point during next year there would probably be a need for a budget amendment from those di erent agencies or even our departments because you know how lean all of that is, but it is a do-able thing. Commissioners were trying to nd a way to make the sales before the holidays available to county employees and sta with the extra money already in their pockets. Commissioner Mike Joyner was ready to cast his vote right then but County Attorney Anne Bast Brown spoke up warning that e state has limitations on when you can give bonuses and I need to do that research. Moody mentioned the di erent pay periods coming up before the holidays for the timing of the bonus/gift. Discussion went into whether it have to go into the regular payroll check and be taxed, whether retirement would have to be paid, and whether it can be just a one-time separate gift. It cant be called merit pay because government does not allow for merit pay. According to Finance Clerk, Ann Moody, there is no set up in the system now for a separate check no matter what you call it. Commission Chair Danny Stevens mentioned that the extra money is also good for the local economy because most of it would be spent locally. With 386 employees in consideration for the bonus/gift, the cost would be $231,600 without any taxes out up to what was mentioned at the meeting of $311,414 taking taxes and deductions into consideration. ere will be a special meeting on October 31 at 11:00 a.m. in the county commissioners meeting room in Bronson to further discuss the issue.

Relaxing, I hope. And me? Well, Im going to need to start this story back on Friday. Benis was on his way home from Childrens Lifeline in Arcahaie, a mission that has worked for decades to improve the lives of children living Haiti. A large mission team from California was staying at Lifeline, working on constructing an orphanage and putting on a Vacation Bible School for the children of the surrounding areas. When Dominique and I were in the States, we were able to meet up with members of the team and talked with them about the possibility of coming to Mapou. eir schedule was tight, but they were going to try to t in a one day trip on Sunday to come over to La Gonave. So, on Friday after school we all began cleaning up Downtown Mapou for our guests. It was then we found out that the plans had changed a little. Benis is obviously a very persuasive person, because the team instead decided to come for two days. We were all very excited to see the team from the States again me especially, because one of the team members was bringing my absentee ballot to ll out for the upcoming election. e team arrived mid-day Saturday, exhausted from the journey to our tiny little village on top of a mountain. I didnt want to immediately bust out and say Wheres my ballot? when it looked like several of them were ready to pass out on their beds. I held back until after Praise Team practice at the church. at was when I learned the devastating newsmy ballot had been forgotten back at Lifeline on the mainland. I was not going to be defeated by a minor setback, so the plotting began to unite me with my ballot. Meanwhile, the California team was an absolute blast to have. eir special ministry is puppetry and they put on a mini-VBS for our church on Sunday night. Both parents and children were absolutely spellbound watching the puppets dance, sing, and cut up. One puppeteer in particular, David, had a puppet friend named Roger who enchanted one and all with his antics. e puppets sang in Kreyol and English, engaging the audience with motions that went along with the songs. A singing/shouting contest of Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelu, Hallelujah and Praise Ye the Lord was waged between the adults and kids. e kids, of course, won. at evening after the service, Dominique, Elly and I got our own personal lesson on puppetry. As a gift, the team was leaving two puppets behind with us to start up our own puppet ministry. Roger was now the newest inhabitant of Mapou. e next morning, the California team woke up before dawn to make the trip back down the mountain and over to the mainland. Now, heres where my quest to vote picks up steam. I also woke up at 4:30 a.m. and traveled with the team to meet my absentee ballot which was being brought to the port for me. Four hours later under the shade of a tree with crabs crisscrossing in front of me, I sat on a plastic chair near the dock lling in all the bubbles completely. So, all in all, my journey down the mountain, across the gulf on a sailboat, and back again took about 9 hours. It was exhausting, but I got my absentee ballot lled out. It is now securely signed/sealed with postage attached, and it is safely in the possession of one of the mission team members who is ying home to the States tomorrow. No one can claim I did not do my civic duty. So, no excuses, GO VOTE! Emily Lovely, the daughter of the Lovely family in the Bronson/Archer area, is spending a year in Haiti working with a missionary in the village of Mapou on the island of La Ganave. ere is no mail service where she is. She is located 3,000 feet up a mountain on an island. After being mailing her ballot to a missions team in California, they traveled to Haiti last week, where the ballot will be carried back to the US by the team, mailed from California to our Levy County Elections Supervisor. Emily is a graduate of Bronson High School, and a teacher at Williston High School. She took a years leave of absence, in order to serve the people of Haiti.

The Levy County Journal4AOctober 25, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Hollywoods Hysterical Cancer Screening Lie for Obama OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate e Hollywood Women for Obama Club wants you to vote with your lady parts. I want the women of America to vote with their lady smarts e latest ad from a trio of Tinsel Town actresses spreads one of the stupidest lies about Mitt Romney this election cycle. Fantasyland needs a fact check. According to starlets Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington, the GOP presidential ticket wants to end funding for cancer screenings. If you and your reproductive organs dont vote for Obama, the doe-eyed celebrities ominously imply, people will DIE, DIE, DIE! is scare-mongering falsehood has been repeated endlessly by Planned Parenthood and the Obama campaign itself. An o cial Obama for America ad released in August accuses Romneys running mate, Paul Ryan, of backing measures to allow employers to deny women access to cancer screenings. It also is being used by demagogic Democrats in key Senate races (in Montana, for example). is much is true: Romney and Ryan do indeed support ending all federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthoods billion-dollar empire. One-third of the budget of the nations largest abortion provider, which masquerades as a comprehensive health care provider, comes from government. But heres what the famous femmes dont tell you: Planned Parenthood does not provide women with mammograms. PPs womens health mantle is a sham. An undercover investigation of 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 di erent states, conducted by pro-life group Live Action, con rmed that the abortion provider does not perform breast cancer screenings. We dont provide those services whatsoever, a sta er at Planned Parenthood of Arizona admitted. Planned Parenthoods Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kan., acknowledged: We actually dont have a, um, mammogram machine, at our clinics. But dont just take Live Actions word for it. In June 2012, the Obama Health and Human Services Department responded to a request for information about how many Planned Parenthood clinics were certi ed to operate mammogram facilities. Our search did not nd any documents pertinent to your request, HHS told the Alliance Defense Fund. Got that? Fraudulent Hollywood harridans and their hero in the White House have been deliberately deceiving women into thinking that eliminating Planned Parenthood subsidies would mean a catastrophic end to a ordable cancer screening services. But the abortion providers purported referral services to outside mammogram facilities are negligible -especially given the widespread availability of free and low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening services across the country supported by both private and public grants. Wait, thats not all. In the real world, its the Obama administration not Republicans, who have actively presided over and promoted a drop in cancer screenings for both men and women over the past four years. You can thank Democratic crusaders for health care rationing in the White House. ey want all the glory of championing socialized medicine, but cut and run from the consequences at election time. Under Obamacare, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) will be empowered to determine which health care services are medically appropriate. For nearly three decades, the federal panel of primary care physicians and epidemiologists has issued nonbinding guidelines and A-F ratings of recommended medical procedures. But as Forbes columnist Dr. Paul Hsieh explains: ObamaCare links insurance coverage of preventive medical services to their USPSTF rating. ... (U)nder ObamaCare, Medicare payment decisions will become increasingly controlled by the new Independent Payment Advisory Board, explicitly created to reduce Medicare spending. ... To reduce costs, many private insurers will likely drop coverage for C and D rated services. Hence under ObamaCare, the USPSTF guidelines will likely become the de facto standards for both government and private health insurance coverage. And that means dropping coverage for the very services Scar-Jo and her femme friends are accusing the GOP of threatening. Note: e USPSTF is the same review panel that advised cutting back on routine ovarian cancer screenings last month, recommended fewer prostate cancer screening tests in May 2012, and proposed mammogram restrictions for women over age 50 in 2009. In fact, the Mayo Clinic reported this summer that mammogram screenings for women in their 40s have declined nearly 6 percent since the Obama panel announced its decision in 2009. Comparing mammography rates before and after publication of the new guidelines, the Mayo Clinic wrote, researchers found that the recommendations were associated with a 5.72 percent decrease in the mammography rate for women ages 40-49. Over a year, nearly 54,000 fewer mammograms were performed in this age group. Its no surprise the Hollywood cancer screening horror ad script was written by left-wing actor/director Rob Reiner of All in the Family and Archie Bunker fame. ese Obamapromoting meatheads and their hysterical handmaidens inhabit a manufactured world impervious to facts and scal realities.

As for what happened in Libya, the Obama administration says that there is an investigation under way. An on-going investigation sounds so much better than stonewalling to get past election day. But you can bet the rent money that this investigation will not be completed before election day. And whatever the investigation says after the election will be irrelevant. e events unfolding in Benghazi on the tragic night of September 11th were being relayed to the State Department as the attacks were going on, in real time, as they say. So the idea that the Obama administration now has to carry out a time-consuming investigation to nd out what those events were, when the information was immediately available at the time, is a little much. e full story of what happened in Libya, down to the last detail, may never be known. But, as someone once said, you dont need to eat a whole egg to know that it is rotten. And you dont need to know every detail of the events before, during and after the attacks to know that the story put out by the Obama administration was a fraud. e administrations initial story that what happened in Benghazi began as a protest against an anti-Islamic video in America was a very convenient theory. e most obvious alternative explanation would have been devastating to Barack Obamas much heralded attempts to mollify and pacify Islamic nations in the Middle East. To have helped overthrow pro-Western governments in Egypt and Libya, only to bring anti-Western Islamic extremists to power would have been revealed as a foreign policy disaster of the rst magnitude. To have been celebrating President Obamas supposedly heroic role in the killing of Osama bin Laden, with the implication that Al Qaeda was crippled, would have been revealed as a farce. Osama bin Laden was by no means the rst man to plan a surprise attack on America and later be killed. Japans Admiral Yamamoto planned the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the United States into World War II, and he was later tracked down and shot down in a plane that was carrying him. Nobody tried to depict President Franklin D. Roosevelt as some kind of hero for having simply authorized the killing of Yamamoto. In that case, the only hero who was publicized was the man who shot down the plane that Yamamoto was in. Yet the killing of Osama bin Laden has been depicted as some kind of act of courage by President Obama. After bin Laden was located, why would any President not give the go-ahead to get him? at took no courage at all. It would have been far more dangerous politically for Obama not to have given the go-ahead. Moreover, Obama hedged his bets by authorizing the admiral in charge of the operation to proceed only under various conditions. is meant that success would be credited to Obama and failure could be blamed on the admiral -who would join George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton and other scapegoats for Obamas failures. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMThe Unjolly Green Giant Needs some Voting Davids to Throw Stones By Kathy HilliardEditorGreen, green, everything green. Including money. Unfortunately what started out being a good thing for the earth in waking up the masses to good stewardship of our earth is being hijacked by an agenda to pay o cronies. What is coming down the road all dressed up in green clothes is looking like a massive cover-up to place all things nice and warm under the green label with one hand but the other hand is dealing out dollars and privilege to the elite crony groups in a government slight-of-hand trick that could to come to a screeching trump-card call if Congress will PLEASE get their act in gear and put on the brakes to the scheme. e Obama administration is redistributing green dollars all over the world in the name of protecting the earth when in truth they are squandering American tax dollars making friends for future socialistic empire building. It makes you realize that the term shadow government might just be coming out of the dark closet. No one in their right mind, maybe a far left mind, could foster as many failures as the Obama administration has without there being a strategy and agenda behind it. Get millions of dollars and then just go bankrupt does not sound like a legitimate plan to most business owners. Do you ever feel like all the cap-and-trade straightjackets aimed at legitimate businesses are meant to do just that, kill them? Yep. And the multi-million dollar bailouts, golden parachutes and cover-ups always seem to go to the elite hob-nobbers who sco at such restrictions being placed on them. With all the talk by Obama about shipping jobs oversees and not paying taxes, take a look at who heads up the Obama Jobs Council and is the chief outside economic advisor Je rey Immelt. Immelt is the CEO of GE and has recently outsourced jobs and monies from a 115-year-old American factory to Bejing, after admittedly paying no taxes on the billion dollar company. But according to FBNs Charlie Gasparino, even Immelt has become disenchanted with the Obama refusal to move to the business center. While GE is in hock to Obama for participation in the green scam and will not corporately admit to thinking otherwise, some say the letter to the shareholders this year gives a clue: We live in a tough era in which the public discourse, in general, is negative American companies, particularly big companies, are vili ed, when we need to work together to nd a better way. Gasparino writes that Immelt is a Republican who said he thought he could do some centering of the Obama agenda, failed, and is not happy about being connected anymore. With 23 million people out of work and now 47 million on food stamps you would think the Obama administration would get the drift of who is really in need. ey dont because they have another agenda all together. is is not an accident.

Voil the big push to get on board with disability and the rest of the tax dollar smrgsbord. is is planned equalization of America to make her equal with all the rest of the world. at is the buzz word of socialism equal. Sounds good to some but if you check it out it is disaster. Without those who are willing to risk and spend their own money in a business venture there will be no new businesses and jobs. What would have happened if our founding fathers had not given up all they had and struck out to put the idea of America into reality? What about the Colonel refusing to accept failure and selling his fried chicken out of the trunk of a car only to become the massive Kentucky Fried Chicken operation? What about Sam Walton singlehandedly building the empire of Wal-Mart to give millions of people jobs and products. You learn from experience and ghting your way up, not from giveaways and you-owe-mes being handed down. Not everyone can do that but to those who can and do, we all bene t. ese are individuals using their gifts, skills and determination in a freemarket society winning and failing in order to follow their dreams for the bene t of all; not collective groups of lemmings willing to jump over the scal cli to follow a self-proclaimed messiah. Once independent businesses are gone, who do you think is going to be around to fund this massive endeavor, folks. I would rather have my tax dollars back in my pocket than fund business failures wearing green jackets that end up in someone elses distributive pocket without my even having a say so about it. Without Congress stepping out of their total immersion into whether theyre going to be re-elected or not (representing the American people was not meant to be a career yall) they will never stop the unjolly green giant from stomping on the American taxpayer whether you pay the tax on income, estates, capital gains, groceries, property or Obamacare with this administration you will pay one way or the other. Do you really want more of this? I think you could have done much better with your money than this. Remember, when you vote it is in secret. Help save America and vote with your family, neighbors, veterans and future free country in mind.

For citizenship, Damon Riley was tapped, and Kyler Starnes was honored for academics and citizenship. When asked why she thought she earned this award, 3rd grader Elizabeth Bloom said, I turn my school work in on time. Im good in class. She was going to ask her mama to frame the certi cate and put it on the wall. Elizabeth is in Hillary Cribbss class.

Most of the 5th graders received citizenship awards: Destiny Gaines, Latia Edward, Dnika Appling, Sherard Joseph and Consuelo Avila. Hannah Kortises earned an award for both academics and citizenship. Jeanne DuBoiss choice was Dnika Appling for citizenship. I was happy, said Dnika. I knew I did well. I guess [she picked me] because I was helping a lot, and I was always goodalways came with a good attitude. Following the presentations by principal Marla Hiers and assistant principal Melissa Lewis, the students were treated to refreshments and received a memento of the event a book bag with paw prints in addition to their certi cates. (Kathy Brewington continues to coordinate this special recognition service by gathering the names from the teachers each month and printing up the certi cates.) Also recognized at the event was Bridget Barley, who represented WES recently as the Mayors Student of the Month along with students from Joyce Bullock Elementary, Williston Middle School and Williston High School. e Student of the Month awards are just one of the many positive ways students are honored for excellence at WES.

On Oct. 15 Aguilars parents announced that the dental records from the body found near Otter Creek determined that it was Christian Aguilar. It appeared as though there was an attempt to bury the body with a shovel but the hard ground in the Otter Creek area made that impossible. Duct tape was found nearby along with blue jeans and Vans sneakers which Aguilar wore at last sighting. Distraught parents spoke while addressing reporters saying, We, as a family, believe that Christian has been found and our prayers have been heard. Upon hearing that con rmation, Carlos said, ....were going to have the honor of taking Christian back home. e Aguilars have been making the 350-mile trip back and forth and now they have their son. On Tuesday Oct. 23 there will be a funeral mass and burial in Miami for Christian. His two aunts from Colombia were nally granted non-immigrant visas to come to the services after receiving help from Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Bill Nelson. His father Carlos spent a few days at Baptist Hospital in south Miami for stress anxiety and resumed updating his Facebook page about Christian. Bravo is in the Alachua County Jail without bond and his next appearance in court will be at his arraignment on Oct. 24 to make his plea before the judge. According to the public defenders o ce Bravo will plead not guilty. Bravos family stated they dont have the money to hire a private attorney for a trial that may prove to be lengthy so they enlisted the help of the public defenders o ce. e Aguilar family has asked for some time and space in order to heal from the loss of their son.UF Student Aguilar continued from page 1A Get in the Game By Sydney StephensChie and High School,Student Government ReporterChie and High School will be celebrating Homecoming the week of October 29 through November 2, 2012. is years theme is Get in the Game, which was selected by the CHS Senate, and activities around campus will be centered around board games. e entire week is a dedicated Spirit Week, with a new theme for students each day. e week begins the 29th with Twister Day.

The Levy County Journal8AOctober 25, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Fall is the Time to Fish, if You Arent Watching Football By Alan Peirce Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionFinally, the hot and humid days of summer are behind us and, for the rst time in a while, you can get out on the water in perfect comfort. For me, fall brings to mind big smoker kings, grouper on the shallow reefs and reds that are way, way over the slot limit. I also think about the smell of smoked mullet and the taste of that rst Florida stone crab claw of the season, which opens on Oct. 15 each year. Now, if youre one of those who have to winterize the boat because college football dominates every weekend or youre at home changing baby diapers like fellow FWC sta er Dan Ellinor (Congrats, Dan!), I totally understand but you will be missing some of the hottest shing action of the year. As the water temperatures drop, gag grouper move back to the shallow water ledges and reefs. When this happens, they are generally hungry, and nothing tugs better than a grouper on a short string. With the reality that gag season will be closing in the Gulf on Nov. 1, for many of us, this will be the last opportunity to see a fresh one hit the plate for quite a while. Cooling water also signals the kings to head back south for the winter. e rst ones to come through are generally the big smokers, and nothing tops o a grouper trip like a 40-pound king on a spinning rod. If youre out there, free-line live bait, cigar minnow or menhaden downcurrent and let him soak while youre bottom shing. If a king doesnt see it rst, you also stand a great chance of hooking into a cobia or an oversized red drum. Red drum travel o shore in large groups this time of year, and they arent picky about whats for dinner. On several occasions, I have seen four or ve rods bend over almost simultaneously when they pass by. at will create some chaos in the boat, especially when everyone has their hands full and one red drum hits the free line too! On grass ats, trout shing can also be phenomenal this time of year. If you prefer to sh arti cial baits, trout can be caught on a y, jig, spoon, top-water plug and just about any shallow-diving plug in your box. Live shrimp under a popping cork can also produce steady action, if the pin sh and grunts arent stealing every shrimp you put out there. For the patient sherman who would rather sit back and watch a cork, a live pin sh or grunt is probably the best way to land a gator trout (spotted seatrout) of 5 pounds or better. Just remember: one sh over the 15-20 inch slot is the limit, and its never a bad idea to put a big one back for next time. October and November are also the best months of the year to catch a net full of mullet as they form massive schools and head out of rivers and creeks to spawn. Floridas recreational bag limit of 50 per person means you can smoke up a huge batch for the next tailgating opportunity. Just prior to spawning, mullet are also loaded with fat, which makes them perfect for smoking. rowing a cast net that is big enough and heavy enough to e ectively catch mullet requires practice. I recommend starting with a lighter bait net and learning from a dock where elevation is on your side. rowing a heavy cast net is a lot like hitting a golf ball. ere are a lot more wrong ways to do it than there are right ways to do it. And, when you get it wrong, bananas will happen (when the net doesnt open up all the way), and that can be frustrating! If you have ever played golf or thrown a cast net, you know exactly what Im talking about. So catch the big game on the radio while youre catching big sh, and dont forget to help us gather data by recording your catch at snookfoundation.org or by using the iAngler phone app. Wed also love your photos!

Where it led, I didnt know. I guess thats why it came as such a shock that day when my mom loaded us kids in her yellow Chevy Vega and put all wed ever known in the rear view mirror. I was scared, but I can only imagine what she mustve been feeling. I can look back now and say, for Mom it was just the beginning of a life to be lived outside the limits. We ran out of gas in Memphis, so thats where we spent our savings on a two bedroom apartment and a loaf of bread. e next day Mom hit the pavement running. She found a job within the week. Soon our sleeping bags were replaced with real mattresses and our little apartment began to abound with other garage sale furnishings. e neighbors mustve thought the pre-oil Beverly Hillbillies had moved to town! We took advantage of every freebee in the city, especially the apartments concrete swimming pond, and the silent version of the drive in picture shows. ( e one you watch from across the street.) We also spent a good many nights outside of Elvis gate. e day he died it about broke our hearts. Wed all set our sights on having him become our new step dad. Mom never did remarry. After several years Momma was able to climb up high enough on the secretarial ladder to see past our little apartment, and bought our rst house. We were so happy! It was just a little old thing really. We were still in the hood, and dirt poor by most standards, but just dumb enough not to know it. Im glad. To us it seemed like a castle. As I grew older I noticed Momma was counting down the days until my graduation. When it arrived she packed up and headed back to Shaw with my brother. I could almost hear the voice inside her saying, eres more to life. ere is greatness yet to be discovered! Maybe she thought it was Mickey Mouse calling, because the day my brother left for college she loaded up her yellow Buick Century and took o for Orlando Florida. Mom made quite a splash in Orlando over the next 15 years. She ful lled her dream of working at Disney, but promptly resigned after nding out the mouse was actually just a little guy in a suit. From there she pursued her life-long passion of law enforcement. She hired on as a secretary at the Orlando Police Department. Mom also worked part time for many years as an usher at the Orlando Orena. (She wanted to meet famous folks!) e Orena turned out to be much more productive than Elvis gate. From then on she sent us a regular diet of photos she had taken with a host of sports superstars. In her private life Mom worked with so many charities she was twice given the City of Orlandos Volunteer of the Year award by the Mayor. She was also the rst civilian to ever receive the Chiefs Special Award from the Chief of Police. A couple of years ago my brother and I went down for Moms early retirement. We also helped her pack to move back to Mississippi so she could be near the grandkids. While we were there she was given two huge going away parties, and honored with heart felt speeches by some of the top dignitaries of the city, including the Deputy Mayor. She left with such accolades I truly thought our Ryder truck might be escorted out with a motorcade! Not bad for a single mom from Shaw Mississippi. ere are two lessons I have learned in the study of her truly extraordinary life. First, and most obvious, is that a person can reach their dreams with courage and persistence. We should never let the fear of failure or the fear of what others may think paralyze us. Second, and not intended in any way to diminish her accomplishments, are the weighty Words of Jesus in Mark 8:36. (For what will it pro t a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?) You see, despite all my mother had achieved in this life, she still sat beside me in that Ryder truck that day with an unful lled heart. e same small voice was still speaking to her, eres more to life! ere is greatness yet to be discovered. ankfully, the story does not end there. Momma went on to do something very rare for a person so successful and set in their ways. She humbly received the good news of the Gospel, and gave her life, and all of her glory, to Jesus. Yes, thats right, that small voice had been the Holy Spirit leading her to Jesus the whole time. Jesus was the true greatness yet to be discovered in her life! But anywayI doubt youd be reading this column today if it werent for Mrs. Guy Ann She eld. You see, not long ago she decided she wanted to be a reporter, so she ran down to the newspaper and got hired as a photographer. One week later shed wormed her way into that reporting job and subsequently got me hired on as a columnist. She doesnt seem to take No very well. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she firstname.lastname@example.org.

Senator Marco Rubio Endorses Dr. Ted Yoho for CongressConservative leader and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio endorsed Dr. Ted Yoho, Republican nominee for North Central Floridas 3rd Congressional District, on Tuesday. Senator Rubio praised Yoho in his statement: As a small business owner, Ted Yoho knows the importance of balancing a budget and meeting a payroll each month. Ted's conservative values and business experience give him a real world view of the reforms needed in Washington. I'm endorsing Ted Yoho because he knows what it will take to get our economy growing again. I encourage conservatives and business owners alike to support Ted Yoho. Dr. Yoho commented, I am incredibly excited and humbled to have the support of Senator Marco Rubio. Marco has been a champion for the Republican party since his election to the U.S. Senate in 2010. I feel that Senator Rubio and I share a few similarities in that we were both underdogs in our campaigns, we both experienced an incredible ground-swell of grassroots support and we both take the responsibility of representing the people very seriously. Yoho received the endorsement of Congressman Ron Paul earlier in the week. Other notable endorsements for Yoho include Gov. Sarah Palin, Gov. Mike Huckabee, the National Ri e Association, the National Federation of Independent Business and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Yoho is a conservative business man and large animal veterinarian who has lived in north central Florida for the last 35 years. e seat Dr. Yoho is seeking is the newly created Congressional District 3 which encompasses the following counties: Alachua, Gilchrist, Levy, Dixie, Lafayette, Suwannee, Columbia, Bradford, Union, Hamilton, Clay, the eastern portion of Madison and the north western portion of Marion County.
