Hardison, Nov. 1, 2012 Story and Photos Owner of www.HardisonInk.comSpecial to the Levy County JournalMore than 40 people working or volunteering for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Progress Energy Florida (PEF), e Ecology Party of Florida and e Nuclear Information Resource Service wrapped up a two-day evidentiary hearing ursday evening (Nov. 1). People came from as far away as Washington, D.C., and as close as Gainesville to serve as judges, lawyers and witnesses in a unique drama that sought the answer to one main question Did the NRC take a careful look and fairly assess all of the factors relevant to the Final Environmental Impact Study (FEIS) of the two nuclear power plants proposed for Levy County? is was not a trial. e answer to the question will be released in February or March, 90 days after the closing of the record of the two days of evidence and testimony presented. Before the record is closed, all parties will review transcripts in writing and on tape to assure typographical errors and potentially more serious missteps concerning the correct recording of what was said is made clear in black letters formed on NRC Board to Rule if Assessments Were Fair Local Veterans Honored by Town of BronsonVeterans Day is coming upon us on November 12 and the Town of Bronson would like to honor three of their local veterans for their service and dedication to our great country. is year Bronson is honoring Mr. Ernest Tyrone Hayes, Mr. Aaron Robinson and Mr. Tommy Lee Howard. Ernest Tyrone Hayes (PeeWee or Red) was a member of the Bronson High School class of 1968. While at Bronson, he was a star track athlete in the 220. He was also a member of the local sandlot baseball teams in Bronson and Archer. Ernest was drafted through Local Board #15 of Chie and in 1969. Ernest attended basic training and Air Bourne training in Ft. Benning, Georgia. At Ft. McClellan, Alabama, Ernest completed AIT and his MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) was 11B2P (Infantry Paratrooper). From December of 1969 to December of 1970, he was in Vietnam. On April 4th of 1970 he was wounded by shrapnel in Vietnam. Before leaving Vietnam in 1970, he earned the Purple Heart, Bronze Star, combat infantry badge, good conduct medal, Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, overseas bars and national defense service medal.

In the previous article of the Levy County Journal we reported the vote to hold o on allowing the variance as if the entire operation had been stopped and we regret that wording. But people from the area did show up to spark a lively discussion with both sides exhibiting their passionately held views. e Town of Bronson does not want gambling institutions in their family-oriented town and enacted zoning regulations re ecting that value. Some residents spoke out about their belief that e Childrens Table food pantry must go on and whatever it takes to keep them in operation must be done. Originally the Town Council required a nancial statement from Bill and Verna Brown, owners of e Childrens Table, to determine if a Bingo operation was really necessary to help with funding. e nancial statement did not appear and Brown explained that saying it should be on the internet. So, in order to verify a need to justify a variance, Mayor Franklin Schuler spent a day at e Childrens Table and even though he did not come back with a nancial report Schuler did say what he saw on that one day convinced him that they lacked the monies necessary to buy fuel and fund the operation. At issue previously was a fuel donation of $2.50 to help defray the cost of fuel which was not demanded and could be substituted for by volunteering at the food pantry. Schuler noted that there were more people in line for food that did not participate in the donation than in the line that did donate. Vice Mayor Berlon Weeks expressed his concern that people would come to the food pantry to gamble $20 in order to make money, not get needed food. At the September 24th meeting Bill Brown came to address a code issue and was told that the entire variance was tabled, after it was originally accepted. is was taken by many to be the end of the Bingo idea, including Councilman Aaron Edmondson who vehemently stated his displeasure of the change at that meeting. Town council members Weeks and Councilman Jason Kennedy stood fast in their vision of a family atmosphere in Bronson that does not include gambling even in the midst of boisterous calls to return to the original vote to allow the variance. Attorney Stephen Warm advised the council, recognizing Schulers report that the Browns need nancial help, that authorizing Bingo for the food pantry does not lead to a precedent of bringing Internet cafs into Bronson. ere are already state statutes that regulate Bingo. Warm said the zoning to exclude Internet cafs would be a totally di erent issue. With Schulers report of the visit and Warms explanation, the council did vote 4-0 to take the matter o the tabled status for the variance. Zoning o cial Bob Ni eneggar can now review the site plan and inspect the premises for re code adherence. For now e Childrens Table is taking the next steps to starting a Bingo operation to fund their food pantry. And the Town of Bronson is still holding to their vision to keep gambling away from their family town. New Levy County Sheri Bobby McCallum with wife Kandy taking in the win.

The Levy County Journal 3ANovember 8, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Medical Alert for SeniorsMedical Alert Monitoring 24/7 Free Equipment Free Shipping Easy Setup Nationwide ServiceHELP AT THE PUSH OF A BUTTON!Call Today:1-888-468-9073 e Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services O ce of Agricultural Law Enforcement Bureau of Investigative Services assisted the Federal Trade Commission in serving a federal court ordered receivership on Leading Productions, LLC, in Winter Park, Florida today. e Bureau of Investigative Services is comprised of two units: the Regulatory Investigative Section (RIS) and the Criminal Investigative Section (CIS). e Regulatory Investigative Section is responsible for the investigation of complaints and compliance monitoring to ensure programs and businesses regulated by the departments Division of Consumer Services comply with laws and rules applicable to the type of business they operate. Examples of programs and types of businesses regulated include Motor Vehicle Repair Shops, In State Moving Companies, Telemarketing businesses, Sellers of Travel and Charitable Organizations. e Criminal Investigative Section is responsible for the investigation of regulated entities and persons who are suspect of committing criminal violations associated with the type of business they operate, as well as programs regulated by the other Divisions of the Department. During this operation, investigators from both units determined that the business was operating as an unlicensed telemarketing room. It was determined that the business was selling lower interest rate / credit card debt reduction services. Illegal telemarketing in Florida is a Felony Crime. Both the business and the salespersons must be licensed by the Department before conducting business. A total of 19 salespersons were identi ed to be conducting telemarketing sales and 15 of them were not properly licensed to do so. ese 15 individuals were issued orders to cease and desist any telemarketing sales until they become properly licensed to do so. Because these 15 individuals had no previous contact with the department, they were given information on the requirements to conduct this type of business and how to do it legally. Should they be caught again, they will be subject to arrest and prosecution. It was determined that the business owner and management of the business were aware of the telemarketing law requirements, having been issued cease and desist orders in the past for illegal telemarketing. Two individual sales people working in the sales room had also been issued cease and desist orders in the past for unlawful telemarketing. e owner of the business, Willie Plancher, was arrested and charged with operating an unlicensed telemarketing business, employing unlicensed salespeople and unlicensed telemarketing. He was also issued an order to cease and desist operation of the business. Two managers, Diana E. Dubauskas and Shakil Venzen were arrested and charged with employing unlicensed salespeople and unlicensed Telemarketing. Two salespersons, Carmen Rodriguez and Diana Schmidt were also arrested and charged with unlicensed telemarketing. Five Arrested for Unlicensed Telemarketing by Florida Department of Ag the board meeting was the proper venue to bring the subject up. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown came to this Special Meeting with her research and newly written policy in hand explaining that the bonus application must be open to all employees; be based on work performance with the performance standard and evaluation process described in the policy; and notice must be supplied to the employees prior to the start of the evaluation period. Brown drafted up the policy with all the requirements in writing and distributed it to the commissioners and county coordinator Fred Moody. e policy provided for Moody to give notice to all the employees in line for the performance award with the criteria employees had to meet in order to receive the performance award. According to Browns research placed in the new policy, each employee will received a form to be lled out describing the criteria they used or provided in the way of highly e ective assistance above the beyond the call of duty to save the county money. Either the employee or their director can ll out the form but it must be returned before Dec. 7 to receive a bonus before Christmas. e forms must then go through county coordinator Moody and human resources to check o Brown worked out a monetary tiered system based on employee type in the amounts of $600, $300 and $150 to be received. Brown stated the unions must also be informed of the performance awards and sign o on the procedure. Indications were that the unions were in agreement with the system. Brown stated emphatically, Like the direction at the board meeting (previous regular meeting), it must come out of current budgets. She also said, Each constitutional o cer is going to have to review whether that statute applies. I cant give that legal advice and how they are going to implement this especially since it comes out of current budgets. Bell also brought up that on-call employees that are also other types of employees will have their bonus based on regular employment and not be able to double-dip with extra on-call hours. Property Appraiser Oz Barker commented that he had cut his budget by 30 percent and that everyone else had also not only cut budgets but employees had taken on more responsibilities to their jobs. Barker stated that he would like the commissioners to go a step further and raise the bonus to $1,000 to full-time employees. Commissioner Chad Johnson stated that the budget had been nalized with the amount at $252,000. Johnson said, If you increase it to the $1,000 that would increase the amount to about $400,000 which would be saying that we have $400,000 out there in the budget. e current monies available to be used for bonuses was helped in part by the countys decision not to pick up the extra on employee insurance. With the performance award system employees can receive a bonus linked to the savings in the budget but without an obligation by the county to future wages as would be the case for pay raises. County Coordinator Fred Moody clari ed that pay raises have to be negotiated with the unions and at this time commissioners are talking about a one time bonus to employees who helped to make budget cuts possible. Commissioner Bell said the bonuses are the only way to give back to employees a merit reward since they are all wearing extra hats. Finance Clerk Ann Moody brought up that if the bonus was given on a separate check, as the board wanted to do, it would be a 25% across the board withholding instead of the employees regular withholding rate if the bonus was given to them in their regular paycheck. Commissioner Mike Joyner proposed giving the bonus amount plus the 25 percent so they could receive the entire amount after the taxes. Attorney Brown stated that the policy ends on December 7 and does not go on from year to year. Framework for the future could be extracted from this, but not at this time. Commissioner Joyner motioned to pass the resolution with the current proposed tiered performance award subject to union approval. Motion was seconded by Commissioner Drew. e motion to give bonuses as presented was passed unanimously. On the issue of using a separate check or including in the payroll disbursement, Commissioner Drew motioned to include bonuses on employees one payroll check. Commissioner Bell seconded. Constitutional o cers will have to make their decisions on their own and Tax Collector Linda Fugate o ered to help them with those decisions using the proper language. Even though the breakdown in amounts is $600, $300 and $150 to di erent types of employees in this written policy, the constitutional o cers are in charge of how they give the bonuses in their departments. Dec. 7 or earlier is the deadline for the evaluation but a bonus check before anksgiving does not appear to be feasible at this time. Oyster Farms Area oyster shermen appealed to the commissioners to accept Resolution 2012-67 which requests Florida Governor Rick Scott to include Levy County in the participation in the damage monies compensating for the destruction of oyster crops at local oyster farms in the Gulf of Mexico. e resolution was passed unanimously. Monies Saved e board also heard from Ralph Cellon, of Gardnyr Michael Capital, Inc., concerning savings to Levy County on interest expenses of between $325,000 to $350,000 involving bond monies negotiated by Cellon. e board agreed unanimously to: ratify the Standard & Poors Rating Services terms and conditions applicable to public nance ratings; approve Resolution 2012-68; and approve the SEC post-issuance compliance services pricing agreement with DAC. Cellon made special reference to the outstanding e ciency and professionalism of Levy County personnel he had dealt with especially noting Chief Deputy Clerk and Finance Director Sheila Rees and County Attorney Anne Bast Brown.

The Levy County Journal4ANovember 8, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Waiving Freedom Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateAmong the objections to ObamaCare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the presidents power to waive the law for any company, union or other enterprise he chooses. e 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for equal protection of the laws for all Americans. To have a law that can cost an organization millions of dollars a year either apply or not apply, depending on the whim or political interest of the President of the United States, is to make a mockery of the rule of law. How secure is any freedom when there is this kind of arbitrary power in the hands of one man? What does your right of freedom of speech mean if saying something that irritates the Obama administration means that you or your business has to pay huge amounts of money and get hit with all sorts of red tape under ObamaCare that your competitor is exempted from, because your competitor either kept quiet or praised the Obama administration or donated to its reelection campaign? Arbitrary ObamaCare waivers are bad enough by themselves. ey are truly ominous as part of a more general practice of this administration to create arbitrary powers that permit them to walk roughshod over the basic rights of the American people. e checks and balances of the Constitution have been evaded time and time again by the Obama administration, undermining the fundamental right of the people to determine the laws that govern them, through their elected representatives. You do not have a self-governing people when huge laws are passed too fast for the public to even know what is in them. You do not have a self-governing people when czars are created by Executive Orders, so that individuals wielding vast powers equal to, or greater than, the powers of Cabinet members do not have to be vetted and con rmed by the peoples elected representatives in the Senate, as Cabinet members must be. You do not have a self-governing people when decisions to take military action are referred to the United Nations and the Arab League, but not to the Congress of the United States, elected by the American people, whose blood and treasure are squandered. You do not have a self-governing people when a so-called consumer protection agency is created to be nanced by the unelected o cials of the Federal Reserve System, which can create its own money out of thin air, instead of being nanced by appropriations voted by elected members of Congress who have to justify their priorities and trade-o s to the taxpaying public. You do not have a self-governing people when laws passed by the Congress, signed by previous Presidents, and approved by the federal courts, can have the current President waive whatever sections he does not like, and refuse to enforce those sections, despite his oath to see that the laws are faithfully executed. Barack Obama, for example, has refused to carry out sections of the immigration laws that he does not like, unilaterally creating de facto amnesty for those illegal immigrants he has chosen to be exempt from the law. e issue is not -repeat, NOT -the wisdom or justice of this Presidents immigration policy, but the seizing of arbitrary powers not granted to any President by the Constitution of the United States. You do not have a self-governing people if President Obama succeeds in having international treaties under United Nations auspices govern the way Americans live their lives, whether with gun control laws or other laws. Obamas citizen of the world mindset was revealed back in 2008, when he said We cant drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that every other country is going to say okay. e desire to circumvent the will of the American people was revealed even more ominously when Barack Obama said to Russian President Medvedev -when he thought the microphone was o -that, after he is reelected and need never face the voters again, he can be more exible with the Russians about missile defense. ere are other signs of Obamas contempt for American Constitutional democracy, but these should be more than enough. Dare we risk how far he will go when he never has to face the voters again, and can appoint Supreme Court justices who can rubber stamp his power grabs? Will this still be America in 2016? omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators SyndicateIn June, a di dent and self-deluded President Obama claimed that the private sector is doing ne. Last week, the private sector responded: Speak for yourself, buster. Who needs an October Surprise when the business headlines are broadcasting the imminent layo bomb in neon lights? e Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 mass layo actions (a ecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were a ected overall. USA Today nancial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that (m)uch of the recent layo activity is connected to whats been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009. Some necessary restructuring is underway in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame -bravely and squarely -right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifterin-chief. Last week, Ohio-based auto parts manufacturer Dana Holding Corp. warned employees of potential layo s amid looming concern about the economy. President and CEO Roger Wood speci cally mentioned the walloping burden of increasing taxes on small businesses and the need to o set increased costs that are placed on us through new laws and regulations. Case in point: Obamacare. e mandate will cost Dana Holding Corp., which employs some 24,500 workers, approximately $24 million over the next six years in additional U.S. health care expenses. As Ohio Watchdog blogger Maggie urber reported, the rms Toledo area corporate o ces laid o seven white-collar employees last Friday; company insiders told her more were on the way. ey are not alone. On Tuesday, Consol Energy issued a federally mandated layo disclosure announcing its intent to idle its Miller Creek surface operations near Naugatuck, W.Va. e move will a ect the companys Wiley Surface Mine, Wiley Creek Surface Mine, Minway Surface Mine, Minway Preparation Plant and Miller Creek Administration Group, all in Mingo County, W.Va. Despite state approval, cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and myriad other agencies, and a stellar safety record, Obamas EPA dragged its feet on the permit approval process. e impasse has forced layo s of 145 Consol Energy employees that will hit at the end of the year. ey are not alone. In August, Robert E. Murray, founder and CEO of Murray Energy Corporation in Ohio, blasted the White House anti-coal agenda for the layo s and closure of his companys mine. He told Obama water-carrying CNN anchor Soledad OBrien that the many regulations that (Obama) and his radical appointees and the U.S. EPA have put on the use of coal, there are dozens of them and collectively by his own energy administration, have closed 175 power plants. As OBrien barked at her guest about purported environmental objections, Murray explained that we cannot get permits for these mines. ey are delaying the issuance of permits. If you cant get the permit, you cant have the mine. ... I created those jobs, and I put the investment in that mine. And when it came time to lay the people o I went up personally and talked to every one of them myself to lay them o Its a human issue. And its an innovation issue, too. As I reported in February, Obamacares impending 2.3 percent medical device excise tax has already wrought havoc on the industry: Stryker, a maker of arti cial hips and knees based in Kalamazoo, Mich., is slashing 5 percent of its global workforce (an estimated 1,000 workers) this coming year to reduce costs related to Obamacares taxes and mandates. Covidien, a N.Y.-based surgical supplies manufacturer, recently announced layo s of 200 American workers and plans to move some of its plant work to Mexico and Costa Rica, in part because of the coming tax hit. Mass.-based Zoll Medical Corp., which makes de brillators and employs some 1,800 workers in the U.S. and around the world, says the medical device tax will cost the company between $5 million and $10 million a year. is July, Indianas Cook Medical Inc. shelved plans to open ve new plants because of the imminent medical device tax hit. ey are not alone. e heads of Koch Industries, Westgate Resorts and ASG Software Solutions have all separately informed their employees of prosperity-undermining Obama economic politics. Left-wing groups have lambasted the executives for exercising their political free speech. But they have remained silent while the White House corruptocrats bribed federal defense contractors into delaying federally mandated layo disclosures before the election. In a memo now being investigated on Capitol Hill, Obama promised to cover the legal fees of Lockheed Martin and other defense contractors if they ignored legal requirements to inform workers in advance about so-called sequestration cuts to the militarys budget scheduled to kick in next year. Truth suppression is a time-honored Obama tactic, of course. Remember: e administration and its Democratic allies on Capitol Hill attempted to punish Deere, Caterpillar, Verizon and ATT in 2010 for disclosing how the costs of Obamacare taxes were hitting their bottom lines -even though they were simply following SEC disclosure requirements. e White House also tried to silence insurers who dared to inform their customers about how Obamacare was driving up premiums. Not this time. e administrations bully boys dont have enough whitewash and duct tape to cover up the past, present and future devastation of the president and his economic demolition team.

Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Letter to the EditorThe Impending Disaster of the Obamacare ExchangesBy Sally C. PipesAll eyes are on voting day, Nov. 6th. But ten days later may prove to be the true makeor-break moment of President Obamas political career -regardless of the election result. November 16th is the deadline for states to submit a blueprint to the federal government for Obamacares insurance exchanges -a key component of the new healthcare law. Already, the exchange system is proving to be an unmitigated disaster. No one should be surprised by this. Like so much of the presidents gargantuan healthcare entitlement, the exchanges are burdened by a spiders web of confusing regulations, poor design, and a top-down, command-and-control structure. ese exchanges were conceived as state-based insurance marketplaces. ey were intended to reduce costs and increase access by streamlining the process of buying coverage. States would customize their exchanges to meet speci c local needs. ey could experiment. And individual consumers and small businesses would have an easy avenue to get coverage. It seemed to be a rare instance of liberal lawmakers taking Justice Louis Brandeis advice to use states as laboratories of democracy. In practice, however, nothing could be further from the truth. For starters, each states base plan must abide by federal mandates regarding application requirements, income veri cation, and appeals processes. Regulations released earlier this year by the Department of Health and Human Services state the situation plainly: e A ordable Care Act does not contemplate divided authority over an Exchange. In other words, its the feds way or the highway. If a state refuses to start up an exchange, the federal government steps in and forcibly establishes one for them. So much for experimentation. But it gets worse. Even now, state governments have no idea what standards or rules they will actually have to abide by. With only weeks remaining before the Nov. 16th deadline, the federal government still hasnt even spelled out the so-called Essential Health Bene ts -that is, the set of minimum bene ts every plan on the exchange has to o er. ( en again, what do you expect from a government that hasnt even passed a budget in three years?). As Pennsylvania State Insurance Commissioner Michael Consedine explained before Congress last month, Continuing without answers to these crucial issues is like driving down a winding road, at night, without any headlights -nothing good will come of it. But even if the government had done its job and spelled out the rules, the exchanges would still be a raw deal for the states. To date, only 15 states plus Washington, D.C. have declared their intention to set up insurance exchanges. e rest are holding back, upset with the costs associated with running them. States have to bare the expenses of sta ng these exchanges and nancing development of needed technologies, like website registration systems. Many worry that these costs will deplete funds for more immediate needs, like education and transportation. Its for such reasons that Florida and Louisiana have opted not to set up their own exchanges. Back in September 2010, nancially strapped California was the rst state to sign legislation creating an exchange. Californias pocketbook was already hurting then and things have only gotten worse since. Local cities like Stockton and San Bernardino have Obamas Layo Bombcontinued on page 5A

With each new generation the possibilities increase in the world of technology. When computers rst started out they lled entire rooms. ese days you can look around and see almost every person using some sort of computing device from hand held tablets, to cell phones with internet, to home and o ce computers. With every passing year more and more devices are created to push the limits on how technology can enhance our way of life. One example is that until now the world of computer programming has basically belonged to Microsoft Windows and Apple, but not anymore. Each of these companies has developed their own spin on providing other ways to meet your computing needs. In this generation of tablets and smartphones, Google has decided to go further than being one of the worlds leading Search Engines and has recently teamed up with Samsung to create the Chromebook. is device utilizes the internet with applications to be used like desktop display icons. is device is built simply to provide access to the web, making it easy to stay connected while on the go, as well as allowing you to access and enjoy media. Smartphones have also paved the way for a new generation of devices such as tablets. is device basically put the power of a laptop in the palm of our hands. Microsoft Windows has even created its own versions of portable PC devices like the new Windows Surface, a convertible laptop/tablet complete with a kickstand and detachable keyboard. e Windows Surface is also preinstalled with the newest Windows operating system, Windows 8. is provides a more mobile-oriented system based mostly from applications comparable to the Apple iOS & Android. Or if you prefer, you can opt to change the settings to look more like the standard Windows style, just with all the new programs and features. So the next time you are in the market, do a little research to see if one of these other computing devices may better t your particular needs. Even though you can do it all from a computer these days, it is nice to have the mobility of a device speci cally made for your needs.

Now the Golden State will have to shell out for an exchange expected to cost over $2 billion a year. With little progress being made since California accepted the rst funds from the feds to set up an exchange, Peter Lee, who is in charge of establishing the exchange, has hired the consulting rm Accenture to help build it. California Health and Human Services secretary Diana Dooley has even criticized the essential health bene ts requirement. ese mandates drive up the price of plans. As a result, some insurance companies may decide not to participate in the exchanges at all. And, as Dooley recently told the New York Times, many of the required bene ts go beyond what I would call essential. Making matters worse, the deadline for compliance comes in the throws of a presidential election, ensuring that the issue will be fraught with political baggage. Some conservatives, like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, have decided to wait until after the election to make any major decisions about the exchanges. Like Obamacare itself, the exchange system is plagued by incompetent management, burdensome regulations, and inept political calculations. Even if the president manages to eke out a victory on election day, November could still prove his undoing. Sally C.

Mayor Beatrice Roberts called the meeting to order and after the prayer and pledge proceeded to the rst order of business and asked for a motion to approve the minutes from July 2, 2012. Clerk Brettel asked to comment on the minutes from July 2, 2012 before a motion was made. She said that while she was transcribing the minutes from July 2, 2012 she realized that the motion made by Councilman Weeks regarding the North Florida Broadband lease was interrupted and not clear. So even though the July 2, 2012 minutes re ect Council voting what they were voting on was not clearly stated. Attorney Warm reiterated that conceptually the Council agreed to bring the broadband in, but there were some issues raised in regards to the lease agreement and Councilman Weeks wanted it approved to the extent that we resolve the issues that were raised. Councilman Weeks agreed with that interpretation. Attorney Warm said as a practical matter North Florida Broadband Authority has gotten feedback on those issues and have sent a revised agreement basically giving the Council another shot at a clear motion and vote. So he suggested that they should clarify that nothing really was addressed last meeting regarding this issue and it be rescinded. APPROVAL OF MINUTES: With that said Mayor Roberts asked for a motion to approve the minutes and clari ed that we will rescind the motion made regarding the broadband lease agreement. Councilman Weeks made a motion to accept the minutes as written with a second coming from Councilman Edmondson. Motion to accept passed unanimously. NEW BUSINESS: Discuss and adopt 2012-2013 Proposed Millage Rate. Mayor Beatrice Roberts reminded everyone that we can set the proposed rate at the highest and then go lower, but can't propose a low rate and choose to increase later in September. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to set the proposed millage rate at 4.5104. Councilman Weeks seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously. Clerk Brettel then discussed the meeting dates for September. Mayor Roberts then read a letter from Supervisor of Elections Mrs. Connie Asbell requesting street closure during the election. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow closing the streets as requested, motion was seconded by Councilman Edmondson. Motion passed unanimously. OLD BUSINESS: Set a date for Park sign unveiling. Councilman Edmondson suggested August 18 as a date. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to hold the dedication for James Cobb and unveiling of the new sign on Saturday, August 18th @ 10:00 am. Motion was seconded by Councilman Weeks. Motion passed. NFBA lease agreement Clerk Brettel already addressed this issue. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: Ms. Candy Jackson Childhood Development Services/Head Start/Early Head Start Programs. Ms. Jackson came to Council to update them regarding the programs her organization provides. ey provide services to children from age I month to school age. e program is o ered to parents with no income or low income and hours are M-F 8:00 2:00. She asked the Council if she would be allowed to leave pamphlets regarding the program in Town Hall. Council thanked her for coming and informing them of what is o ered. BRONSON YOUTH LEAGUE: Mike Hanna had a question about the park regarding the intentions of the city. Councilman Weeks said there is a meeting tomorrow between the sta and the Mayor. Councilman Kennedy stated that the Council has already made a motion to move forward with the recreation program. He said that no one is trying to run anyone out. Councilman Weeks said that he didnt see how there could be two youth programs operating within the Town. Mayor Robelts said it is all just in a name change. She went on to say that we want the same volunteers, kids, coaches, parents it will just be managed from the town. Mike said that he understood all that, he went on to say that he did get information from Kelli today and spoke with Max regarding soccer, so now within the next day or so they will be ordering trophies. Councilman Weeks said that all the Town is trying to do is give the program solid structure at the top. Clerk Brettel asked Mike Hanna what he would like to see happen. He said he thinks there needs to be the right people who will work together and getting things scheduled when they need to be scheduled. Councilman Weeks discussed the reasons why the Town feels a need to step in and run the youth organized sports program in the Town. Mike Hanna questioned Councilman Weeks about a fund raising event he was suppose to be helping with that never happened for the BYL. Councilman Edmondson stated that to him if its suppose to be about the kids then all these adults should learn to work together. He also agreed that the Town would give the program stability and structure. He felt that you have to have someone who is neutral at the head with no agenda then it will run right, someone who is committed to all sports. Clerk Brettel reminded Mike that she did extend a hand to him at the BYL meeting and explained to him how the Town was going to approach the situation, she explained that sta was going to have a meeting with the Mayor and layout a plan and then move forward. She told Mike that after that meeting then she would sit down with him and whoever else just not 30 people strong because that is unproductive and discuss any further concerns. Mayor Roberts could not understand if Kelli explained all that to Mike why that wasnt a su cient answer he could give the parents. Kelli went on to say that if the parents issue is with Joe Markham that she feels like he has abandoned the program and anything he has to say at this point in time will not matter to whoever is involved at the present time. Kelli went on to say that with it under the Town it becomes part of her, Jimmy and Susies job. She said that it puts a responsibility on them to provide a service. Kelli then went on to tell Mike Hanna that if the problem was with her or Jimmy he needed to say something. Councilman Edmondson said that people needed to get involved and come to the meetings not just on the tail end of things that this Council has been discussing this issue for several meetings, and operating on hearsay never gets it done. Councilman Schuler said all of this would have been avoided if Joe Markham would have done the right thing regarding a coach a year and half ago. Mayor Beatrice Roberts again reiterated to Mr. Mike Hanna that the council decided to move forward with the Bronson Parks and Recreation department. Kelli said she would de nitely get with Mike after her meeting with the Mayor and set up a meeting. Council thanked Mike for speaking about the youth league concerns. PUBLIC UTILITIES: Nothing to report INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE: Councilman Weeks wanted to discuss again the School Board Inter-Local Agreement. Councilman Weeks went on to give a time line of the events and correspondence that happened prior to the Inter-Local Agreement expiring. He feels that the invoice for the small sewer expansion was submitted prior to the expiration of the agreement and the School Board should pay the bill. Councilman Weeks said he recently spoke to past School Board Superintendent Mr. Cli Norris regarding this issue. Councilman Weeks wants a demand letter sent to the School Board and if they dont pay the bill a suit should be led. Attorney Warm asked for clari cation and suggested to the Council to assign it to him to revisit and he will look into and do an analysis and report back. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow Attorney Warm to review this issue motion was seconded by Councilman Edmondson. Motion passed unanimously. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE: Nothing to report ATTORNEY REPORT: Nothing to report FIRE DEPARTMENT: Chief DiMaggio spoke about the current rumors that are going around about the meeting that took place in Chie and with representatives from several of the cities and the Director of Public Safety Chief Knowles and Commissioner Ryan Bell that we were not invited to again. Councilman Kennedy said that since then he has been in contact with several commissioners and municipal elected o cials. He had again asked for input or questions and concerns regarding the possibility about Bronson Fire working with the County in any capacity. Vice Mayor Schuler stated he had a meeting with Director Knowles because the Vice Mayor was not in attendance the night he presented to Council and he voiced his concerns to him directly. CLERK REPORT: Clerk Brettel submitted the CDBG site monitoring report for informational purposes. She also referenced the letter from EEOC dismissing the claim led by Mr. Patrick Travers. She then wanted direction from the Council regarding the parameters for the use of the old tables and chairs. Mayor Beatrice Roberts liked the idea of a deposit being taken and then returned. She suggested $20. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to let the old tables and chairs be used but a refundable deposit of $20.00 be taken up front. Motion seconded by Vice Mayor Schuler. Motion passed unanimously. COUNCIL REPORT: Councilman Aaron Edmondson wanted to discuss getting rid of equipment that either doesnt work or is just laying around.

COUNCIL REPORT: Councilman Aaron Edmondson wanted an update on the CDBG houses. Clerk Brettel said that they have started again. Deputy Clerk Susie Robinson asked Councilman Edmondson to research some street lights on Cobb and Blitch. Mayor Roberts also said Mr. Colon had asked for lights on Patterson. He also asked about the bad pot holes on Wilson. Jimmy said he has already talked to Bruce Greenlee with the County about the pot hole issue. Councilman Berlon Weeks had nothing further to discuss. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler asked why there are not two stop signs on Main if you are coming into or going out of town. After some discussion with everyone having their own speculations Mayor Roberts moved on. Councilman Jason Kennedy wanted an update on Jimmy moving his o ce out to the park as previously discussed. Councilman Weeks felt the discussion was to consolidate public works to one facility to deter theft. Jimmy wanted them to look at where they had suggested because it was no bigger than a closet. Mayor Beatrice Roberts had nothing to discuss. REVIEW & PAY BILLS: Councilman Aaron Edmondson made a motion to approve and pay the bills with a second coming from Vice Mayor Schuler. Motion carried unanimously. ADJOURN: With nothing further on the agenda Mayor Beatrice Roberts adjourned the meeting at 8:34 p.m. Minutes Approved: Beatrice Roberts, Mayor Kelli Brettel, Town ClerkTown of Bronson First Public Budget Hearing, September 10, 2012Mayor: Call Meeting to Order Prayer: Pledge of Allegiance: Roll Call: Present: Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler, Mayor Beatrice Roberts, Councilman Aaron Edmondson, Berlon Weeks, Jason Kennedy, Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford, Fire Chief Je DiMaggio, Building O cial Bob Ni enegger, Deputy Clerk Susie Robinson, and Clerk Kelli Brettel. Mayor Beatrice Roberts called the meeting to order and after the prayer and pledge she welcomed everyone. She did a roll call and then proceeded to the rst item on the agenda. NEW BUSINESS: Clerk Brettel discussed how the agenda items will be discussed at tonight's meeting. She started out with the general fund. She said she would run through the funds by line item and asked the Council to please stop her on any item they would like to discuss. She began by saying the Jim Milton Cemetery Cash balance will be reduced to $3800.00. She stated the proposed Ad Valorem property value is $34,391,982.00 she reminded the Council they set the proposed mileage rate at the highest amount allowed which was 4.5104. Kelli said she did not budget an increase in garbage at this time. When the Council reviews the RFP submittals and sets a possible new rate, she then will do a budget amendment at that time. Kelli stated that she did budget for a full time person for the new parks & recreation person. She also stated that all salaries have been budgeted for a slight increase. Mayor Roberts asked "Why is that" She responded by saying she wanted a raise and everyone else did also. She budgeted for a $1.50 raise for everyone. Councilman Weeks felt that was a hefty raise in this economy and felt evaluations should be done before raises are handed down. Councilman Kennedy had a concern regarding the Executive Salaries and Overtime and if Mayor Roberts is monitoring these items. His concern was that overtime is $15,000.00 over budget for all employees. Mayor Roberts reminded him that everything we do is done by the employees with no help from Council. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler said not to mention all the meetings that they attend and the two Council meetings a month. Kelli said we work 8:00-4:30 with a 1/2, hour lunch and the guys outside get a 1 hour lunch. Councilman Kennedy said if there is so much overtime being racked up then maybe we should consider putting people on salary. Councilman Edmondson thought that would not be fair to the employees. Kelli said her hours were just related to the work load. Councilman Weeks felt that managing the employees comes under the Mayor's position. Councilman Kennedy wants a monthly P&L, and labor report, and a quarterly budget meeting. Councilman Weeks asked for monies put in the budget for security at the park. Clerk Brettel then continued going through the general fund accounts. She then said the $12,000 in the cemetery fund was for gates, and pointed out the new line item of $18,000.00 for the Watershed Plan. She then said that she budgeted for some monies to be set back for reserve. Councilman Kennedy then addressed the increase from the $11,000.00 to $26,000.00 for the re department. Councilman Kennedy said that the Town has not put an equal percentage towards re protection within the Town from what the County funds. He said that they set back a reserve to go towards the new building fund. He then touched base on the few additions that were incorporated into the Fire budget. He wanted to fund a scholarship fund for high schoolers interested in a career in re ghting. Jason said the only increase is the $15,000.00 coming from the general fund to the re department. Clerk Brettel would like to see a receipt log for fuel purchased from the County. Je said that they could keep a fuel log if that would be helpful. Councilman Edmondson then brought up the issue regarding Jerry Horton purchasing a at screen T.V. and wanted to know why he did that without Je s approval or Council. After some discussion it was decided that they would discuss this in the regular meeting. Clerk Brettel then continued with going through the line items of the propriety fund. After very little discussion she pointed out to the reserve fund amount, and the amount that was put towards paying back the General Fund. She nished with an overview of the sewer budget. Kelli then pointed out the di erent tax rates that can be considered. She then asked the Council for a decision on millage. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to adopt a millage rate of 3.6575 with a second from Councilman Weeks. Motion passed unanimously. Clerk Brettel than read for the record that the Council has adopted a millage rate of 3.6575 for the 2012-2013 budget year. She went on to say that would net 125,789.00 in ad valorem taxes and would bring back a revised budget to re ect those changes. With nothing more to discuss Mayor Beatrice Robert is adjourned the budget hearing at 7:01 p.m. and said the regular council meeting will commence in 5 minutes.

Councilman Ross seconded and the motion passed unanimously, 3-0. A. MINUTES FROM SEPTEMBER 25, 2012 REGULAR CITY COUNCIL MEETING B. SPECIAL EVENT APPLICATION: FRIENDS OF WILLISTON POLICE CAR SHOWITEM 3 PUBLIC PARTICIPATIONMiss Jennifer Collins addressed the Council to review the status on the Sweets and Treats Fall Festival. She advised that there were currently 12 participants requesting a booth and numerous supporters for the event. Mr. Bob Uhlar addressed the Council stating that he was responsible for setting up lights for Light up Williston and that he wanted to create a Halloween/Fall theme for the pavilion lighting at Heritage Park for the event. He noted the lights would be returned back to the Christmas theme for Light Up Williston. Councilman Goodman con rmed that Mr. Uhlar would be doing the labor at no charge but is requesting the citys permission to change the lights in the pavilion. Miss Collins advised that Walgreens would have to purchase the lights to be put up and would also going to be requesting donations, in addition to conducting bake sales and other fund raisers to help raise the $500 needed to purchase the lights. She explained that once the lights were purchased, Mr. Uhlar has volunteered to put them up each year for the Fall Festival free of charge. President Cason stated that the Council would not be able to take action on the item nor provide funding because the budget had already been laid out but clari ed that the event was already approved. He stated that as long as the pavilion is left as they found it when the Fall Festival is concluded, he did not foresee any issues with the lighting request. Miss Collins asked if fog machines and ashing lights would be allowed. Chief Strow responded that strobe lights can cause a seizure in children with epilepsy. Councilman Goodman suggested Miss Collins work with Chief Strow regarding those issues where safety could be a concern. Miss Collins con rmed she would be talking with the Chamber of Commerce about support for the event. Mayor Hethcoat stated that when the Christmas lights were put up caution was taken with regard to nails, screws or other items that would penetrate the laminate. Mr. Uhlar con rmed there would be no need for any additional holes in the process of putting up the Fall Festival lighting. Mr. Uhlar stated that when he began to install lighting for Light Up Williston, he made sure it was done in a way so as to avoid the need to penetrate the beams and he con rmed he would continue to abide by that. Glenn Lewis, city resident, addressed the Council and noted that lately he has been hearing train horns in the middle of the night. He pointed out that there are laws in e ect that ban the use of train whistles between 10 pm and 6 am in other locations. He provided a packet outlining similar legislation Dade County has enacted to address this issue. He stated the information in the packet would be bene cial to Williston and gave the packet to Clerk Taylor for record. He advised that, on a second issue, he believed that the City of Williston is dying. He noted that another business had moved out of town to relocate to Trenton. He observed that the main street block is an eye sore. He recalled that a resident addressed the Council on this topic recently. He stated that he was aware of grants that would help x the face of buildings. He referenced information provided by ehow.com on faade grants. President Cason stated that as discussed at last meeting, the rst step is to work with the CRA Committee. He reminded the attendees that the Council has noted that the facility across the street is privately owned as well. Mayor Hethcoat acknowledged that the City has obtained faade grant funds in the past but the owners will not accept them and suggested that the people talk with the owners of the buildings about these concerns. He stated that the City would work with them now and have o ered to over the last 20 years. He advised that the City turned down a faade grant that would still be in e ect today had the owners agreed to sign on to accept it. Mr. Lewis remarked that the owners did not appear to care about this town and the property seemed to be just a tax shelter to them. President Cason con rmed with Planner Hall that the CRA meets the second Monday of every month at 5:30 with the exception of November which is scheduled for the second Tuesday because of the Veterans Day holiday. President Cason expressed his appreciation for Mr. Lewis concerns. Councilman Ross responded to Mr. Lewis question related to train horns, stating that there are several automobiles and trucks in town that have train horns installed that may also be responsible for the noises he has been hearing after hours.ITEM 4 OLD BUSINESSA. DISCUSSION AND DIRECTION: CITY MANAGER SELECTION PROCESS Interim City Manager Wingo stepped out of the room stating she should excuse herself while the Council discussed this issue. President Cason advised that of the 42 applications accepted, 11 were recommended for review by Range Rider Mark Durbin. He advised that Council was provided all applicant materials for each of the 11 nalists for consideration and that some background investigation has been completed. He concluded it is the Councils responsibility to narrow the list but because there are only three members present, he felt it would be unfair to the City and the candidates for the Council to select those individuals, noting a preference to have all Council members make the selection in a workshop setting. Mayor Hethcoat clari ed that he also was designated to sit on the selection committee. He con rmed that Mr. Durbin would be available to further assist in the process after October 30th. Councilman Goodman clari ed that of the list provided by Mr. Durbin, the Council is to review the materials and reduce the number to 3 5 top candidates for the purpose of identifying those to be interviewed. Councilman Ross stated his agreement that this topic be continued until there is a better number on the quorum. Mayor Hethcoat suggested having each member review the 11 and then individually identify their top three to determine how each members top three compares within the Council. Councilman Goodman noted he has never been fond of that process and prefers to gather the members in a workshop and discuss the applicants together. ere was some discussion on dates and times available for a proposed workshop. Councilman Goodman moved to tentatively schedule a workshop for Monday October 29th at 5 pm for the City Manager selection and giving Clerk Taylor the authority to nalize that schedule with alternative dates as needed. Councilman Ross seconded the motion. On vote, the motion passed unanimously, 3-0. At that time, Interim City Manager Wingo returned to the Council room.ITEM 5 NEW BUSINESSA. DISCUSSION: LEVY COUNTY SCHOOL FACILITIES IN THE CITY OF WILLISTON Je Edison and Robert Philpot addressed the Council related to planning for the building of a new school in Williston. Mr. Edison explained that this process began over a year ago with a committee which provided the School Board some direction on school con gurations and the acquisition of property in the City. e School Board approved those plans and will be seeking a new 6-12 Williston Middle/High School and anything that is done must be in accordance with Department of Education recommendations. He noted that the School Board has conducted a feasibility study for WHS with one currently ongoing for WMS. e plan for WHS has been favorably received by Florida DOE and on October 30th, the Levy County School Board will present the WMS feasibility study to them. Part of the study requires a review of the facilities to determine if it is more cost e ective to remodel or rebuild and whether to do so on the existing site or at a new location. He stated that more work needs to be done in order to qualify for the recommendation. LCSB cannot a ord to build the school on its own and will be attempting to qualify for special facilities funding through PECO revenue which is state money that is gained by taxes on utilities. He stated the LCSB will have to pledge back a portion of the funding for three years and that the last time LCSB received this funding, they built the Bronson Middle/High School a $14 million facility that cost the county $5.5 million. He stated that the LCSB is looking at building the Williston Middle/High School based on a plan that has been built at a cost of $50 million with the county being responsible for less than 10%. He stated the funding provided by the LCSB will not come from taxes but from tightening the belts of the administration and putting some things in abeyance for a period of time. He advised that the City is a ected in that, if all goes well, two pieces of property will become available. Part of the process of approval is to have a plan related to what is going to be done with the existing WMS and WHS campus. He concluded that if there is interest by the City of Williston, there should be some planning occurring related to these properties. Councilman Goodman asked if Public Education Capital Outlay money is currently coming into Levy County. Mr. Edison responded that Levy County levies 1.5 mils on property taxes and that a portion of those funds are what would be used to repay the state over a period of 3 years. Councilman Goodman con rmed with Mr. Edison that the LCSB will have to work out a way to keep the rate the same at the same time the funds are repaid to the state. Interim City Manager Wingo explained that the PECO pot is highly competitive and the LCSB is lobbying the PECO pot for the proposal of this new school. She added that if the LCSB is able to convince the representatives in Tallahassee that this proposal is better than others received from other counties, they will receive funding but it will have to be returned back into the pot over three years. Mr. Edison clari ed that the LCSB would use the portion of the 1.5 mils that is not already speci cally dedicated for debt service to repay the funding. President Cason con rmed that essentially there is a strong possibility there will be empty school facilities in the City within the next 3-4 years and to assist the school board, something must be done with the buildings. Mr. Edison responded that he will be talking to the Commissioners and other entities that have an interest. He stated it is the Superintendents goal that the kids that are currently in 9th grade, graduate out of a new school facility. He noted of the buildings available, the best building at WHS is the cafeteria with 3 very good buildings at WMS including a cafetorium, media center and the 8th grade wing. Mayor Hethcoat commented that the cafeteria would make a wonderful community center. Mrs. Debra Jones asked which piece of land the School Board was looking at for a new school site. Mr. Edison responded that because of the negotiations occurring, he would rather not get into speci cs except to say that they are three pieces of property in close proximity to Williston Elementary School. Mr. Philpot stated that there is $1.5 Million available in the budget for a land purchase but it cannot be spent if it is not allocated. He added that he is excited about the plans but that everyone should also keep in mind there is no guarantee. However, having a cutting edge learning facility in Williston might attract people to this town. President Cason commented on the potential for the old facility. Mr. Philpot responded that it has to be one of the most valuable pieces of real estate in Williston. Mr. Edison stated that every piece of property the LCSB has reviewed is either in the city or borders the city for utility purposes. Interim City Manager Wingo suggested that sta coordinate with Mr. Edison to review plans for the facilities and begin brain storming. Mr. Edison stated that the facilities are ripe for grant opportunities. Clerk Taylor asked if the plans included building a new football stadium at the new school site. Mr. Edison stated that they are unsure as to whether that will be possible. Mr. Philpot and Mr. Edison clari ed that the special facilities funding cannot be used to fund athletic facilities. Mr. Edison thanked the Council for the opportunity to address the Council on this topic. B. SCHEDULING: REQUEST FOR A WORKSHOP TO DISCUSS CITY CLERK POSITION AS IT RELATES TO THE CITY COUNCIL AND CITY MANAGER President Cason explained that, over the years there has been a transition from the current City Clerk position. He advised that he met with the City Clerk and Interim City Manager and that during the meeting, it became apparent that there are philosophical di erences of opinion on how this position works and he felt it should be reviewed in a workshop setting. He stated there were several items of information he took from the meeting he would like to be able to discuss and for that reason a workshop is the best format to really address the position and how it relates to the City Council and City Manager position. He stated that this City has been in such transition for the past 4 6 years and the workshop will help to make sense of current status. Mayor Hethcoat and Councilman Ross agreed there is a need to have a workshop to get everyone on the same page. Councilman Goodman stated he did not believe the situation required another workshop but that he would attend. He stated his opinion is that the Charter clearly spells it out and that cannot be changed without a vote. He stated he felt this was a personality issue and his position has not changed. President Cason stated that by Council not taking any action, it is an endorsement of the action of a previous Council and whether the current Council desires to endorse it or instigate a new action, this should be done formally through a resolution and reviewed in a workshop setting. He added that there was information obtained in a meeting he had with the Interim City Manager and the City Clerk that might be useful to the members that could be made available in a workshop. President Cason moved to hold a workshop on ursday, November 1st at 6 pm to discuss the City Clerk position. Councilman Ross seconded the motion. On vote the motion passed unanimously, 3-0. C. SCHEDULING: REQUEST FOR A SPECIAL MEETING ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2012 TO DISCUSS THE PROGRESS ENERGY CONTRACT President Cason requested further detail from Attorney Koberlein as to whether a special meeting to discuss the Progress Energy contract would be public or private. He further inquired as to whether it would be su cient to schedule the meeting and then advertise if it will be a public meeting. Attorney Koberlein con rmed that the meeting can be scheduled and advertisement made and changed as needed. Councilman Goodman moved to hold a workshop to discuss the Progress Energy Contract at 7 pm on October 30th. Councilman Ross seconded. Interim City Manager Wingo stated that her conversation with Progress Energy is a draft that is being reviewed by FMPA attorneys with a counter o er pending submission to her by sometime next week. She stated she would forward the information received to Attorney Koberlein. On vote, the motion carried unanimously, 3-0. F. DISCUSSION AND DIRECTION: ROLL OFF ORDINANCE CLARIFICATION President Cason stated that there are two Councilmen that were present during the time the roll-o issue was brought before Council. Because of the history of this issue and without having at least one previous member present at the current meeting, he did not feel it was advisable to proceed and suggested the item be postponed until other members are present in order to have more knowledgeable discussion on the topic. Mayor Hethcoat stated it was an ordinance put in place to go into the roll o business and do away with the fees. He agreed that Councilman Byrd and Vice President Fugate would have valuable information related to the item. Councilman Goodman moved to table the discussion on the con icting roll-o ordinances until the next Council meeting. Councilman Ross seconded. e motion passed by general consent. G. RESOLUTION 2012-30: AGREEMENT FOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES BETWEEN THE CITY OF WILLISTON AND THE WITHLACOOCHEE REGIONAL PLANNING COUNCIL Planner Hall advised that the WRPC submits a contract annually related to support planning services for the City which they have done over the past 5 years. He stated that, aside from the price increase, there are no major changes to the contract and that even with the increase, the fee does not exceed what cities are paying. He con rmed the contract would provide for professional services for Planning and Zoning. President Cason moved to approve 2012-30. Councilman Goodman seconded. Mr. Lewis addressed the Council to ask what the company will be doing for the City. Mayor Hethcoat explained that the state is divided into regions with Williston being in the Withlacoochee Regional Planning region. He stated that there are certain studies required to meet state guidelines that are done continued on page 9A
The Levy County Journal 9ANovember 8, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 annually and others every 5 years, such as is needed with the Citys Comprehensive Plan. He explained that the WRPC works with the City on these studies and they are very reasonable. He stated that he was on the WRPC Board for approximately 8 that they have a sta that does work for a much lower feel than would be available outside of the WRPC. He added that the City has used them for various things such as brochures to promote the community, mapping, obtaining demographic information on the region, etc. Councilman Goodman clari ed that the WRPC will only provide services on an as needed basis and bill accordingly. He noted the funds are in the budget but the City will not necessarily need to spend them all. On vote, the motion carried unanimously, 3-0.ITEM 6 PUBLIC PARTICIPATION None. ITEM 7 CITY MANAGERS ANNOUNCEMENTSInterim City Manager Wingo stated that during her time in Williston, she has made quite a few changes to how the agenda items are presented to the Council with the latest change being a reference to identify the individual responsible for the preparation of each item, along with a legal review notation. She stated that all actions are now initiated through Resolution so there is a record of Council and that she has worked with sta to expand the background portion of the agenda cover sheet. She introduced Paula Davis with Severn Trent who has been working to transition the payroll process and accounts payable. Paula Davis addressed the Council and explained she works as accounts payable manager, payroll, insurance coordination, and is Mr. Blooms representative this week.ITEM 8 COUNCILORS ANNOUNCEMENTSCity Attorney Koberlein advised that the local hospital declared bankruptcy. Councilman Goodman clari ed that this is the same hospital the City has had issues with related to the payment of their electric bills. City Attorney Koberlein explained that he and the Interim City Manager are working to retain a bankruptcy attorney to protect the Citys rights as a creditor to put up capital to ensure the bills are paid. He stated the attorney services should come under the purchasing power of the Interim City Manager so there will not be a requirement have to be another meeting on the bankruptcy attorney and that he was addressing this item at Council for informational purposes. Interim City Manager Wingo advised that the Hospital has led a motion on October 5th so that it will not have to pay more than two weeks worth of utility payments. e bill is close to $20,000 and the letter of credit they had is no longer valid. Councilman Goodman con rmed the electric service has not been shut o Mayor Hethcoat con rmed that the group that led bankruptcy was the same group that had just purchased the facility. President Cason stated that, although he was approached about the City providing security lighting for the hospital, that request occurred just prior to his learning of the bankruptcy and therefore, no action will taken by the City related to the lighting request. Councilman Ross expressed his appreciation to Chief Jimmy Wright of the Hiawassee Georgia Police Department for use of his o ce to attend the last Council meeting via telephone. President Cason stated he appreciated Councilman Ross and the Hiawassee Georgia Police Department. Mayor Hethcoat thanked Chief Strow for setting up the conference call and for presenting the Williston Police Department summary information as well. Mayor Hethcoat advised that a lot of work was going into the 3rd Annual Veterans Day Parade and requested the members plan on being there and participating.ITEM 9 ADJOURNMENTCouncilman Goodman moved to adjourn and the meeting was adjourned at 9:38 pm. Jason S. Cason, City Council President Frances V. Taylor, City ClerkCity Of Williston 10-16-2012 continued from page 8A NRC Board to Rule continued from page 1A white pages. e two-day hearing sharpened the focus on research by the various parties, which included thousands of pages of supporting documents. e hearing came about because e Ecology Party of Florida and e Nuclear Information Resource Service who are known as interveners asserted that the NRCs FEIS fell short of some requirements in the National Environmental Policy Act that requires the NRC to adequately address the impact of the proposed nuclear plants construction and operation upon the neighboring environment. e three-judge board that is part of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission heard arguments Wednesday and ursday. e board is part of the NRC, but it is independent and will rule objectively on the question. Alex Karlin, chairman of the three-judge panel, is an attorney by profession. He was joined by Dr. Anthony Baratta and Dr. Randall Charbeneau, who are professors and sit as administrative judges on the NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board. e three topics considered are: site characteristics; groundwater modeling and alternative water sources; and environmental monitoring and mitigation. Interveners contend that the NRC FEIS is not adequate in its coverage of the impact from dewatering upon the environment. e daily average withdrawal of 1.58 million gallons over a period of 20 to 80 years, the interveners allege, will create severe environmental impacts in the region. In this hearing format, the three judges asked questions of experts who have already presented studies and given testimony under oath about their ndings and methods. After the hearing, David Still spoke to HardisonInk. com about what the interveners sought. Still, a witness for the interveners, is the former executive director of the Suwannee River Water Management District. Now he owns a consulting rm. e interveners in this case would just like to have a fair process, Still said, where the environmental impacts that will be caused by the construction of a nuclear island and a nuclear facility, which include the impacts of drawing 1.58 million gallons of water a day on an average annual basis, and up to 5.8 million gallons of water a day for a week at a time. e interveners want the process to show what this will do to the water quality, the water table and associated environmental issues. Still was asked his opinion about whether the site could support two nuclear power plants. Dr. Sydney Bacchus intimated that the many wetlands, oodplains and other sensitive environmental factors in the vicinity would be too adversely impacted by dewatering that will occur from the construction and operation of the nuclear power plants. Dr. Bacchus also cited one study that lists tectonic fractures, which can be an in uence on underground water ow. I would agree that the site selection should have been a lot better in this process, Still said. e avoidance of wetlands would have been a great thing. And the addition of the applicant (Progress Energy Florida) using an alternative water source (rather than only a well- eld just south of the nuclear plants) would have eliminated a lot of issues with the site. So, on the front end, if they (PEF) would have resolved the alternative water supply issue, I think you would have seen a whole di erent case referring to the environmental issues. An expert witness for Progress Energy Florida was Peter G. Hubbell, who worked for the Southwest Florida Water Management District for 19 years, and for nine of those years was its executive director. He seemed comfortable with the quantity of water being used, having been noted as causing only a small impact on the local environment. Both days of hearings were heavily lled with questions primarily from Karlin, but also from Baratta and Charbeneau aimed at nding the truth as to whether the NRC sta simply used existing studies to support that the amount of fresh water available for the nuclear plants was so plentiful that the continual drawdown from pumping an average of 1.58 million gallons a day would not signi cantly adversely a ect the regions habitat. e three-man board was looking only to see if the NRC sta followed the law in regard to the NRCs minimum mandatory responsibility to conduct necessary and reasonable research concerning environmental impacts. In looking at the NRCs use of modeling to determine a potential future e ect from the use of so much water, the judges asked NRC and PEF experts about the evolution of models. Testimony showed a regional model formed by the Southwest Florida Water Management District (Swiftmud) was the foundation for Model One. When NRC investigators found Model One showing water elevations that did not match what they saw in the eld, testimony showed, they recalibrated it to create Model Two. Testimony showed Swiftmud did not require a review of Model Two to alter any of its rulings in regard to letting the nuclear power plants progress toward construction although those previous rulings were based either on Swiftmuds own regional model or Model One. Another bit of information from the hearings showed two springs to the northeast of the proposed power plant site are not going to be monitored before construction, during construction or after operations start at the nuclear plants, even though they appear to be among the natural water features, which may be adversely a ected by a drawdown of water. In fact, however, the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) is not nalized even though the FEIS is nished. A draft of the EMP has been made but it could be modi ed. Bacchus tried to impart to the panel of judges her belief that the public has little say to in uence the Florida Department of Environmental Protection or to Swiftmud about protecting the environment from too much fresh water being removed on a daily basis for these proposed nuclear power plants. She said DEP and Swiftmud only listen to adjacent property owners. CLOSING STATEMENTS Richard Webster, one of the attorneys for the interveners, provided closing statements for the three-judge panel to consider. is is the rst nuclear power plant proposed in decades in an area where there are endangered species and sensitive habitats, he said. e NRC failed to require an adequate model of impacts. Interveners believe conduits for water exist below the property at the well- eld. ey also contend that a drawdown will pull from conduits that reach out like a star, rather than drawing from what would be a cone, to impact the area. While PEF took 118 borings in the northern part of its property to establish how safe the buildings will be sitting on dolomite rocks as a foundation, there are zero borings in and around the area of the well- eld, where the water will be drawn from. e NRC failed to require PEF to establish a baseline of data at the nearby springs, Webster said. And PEF has no monitoring currently planned at the springs during construction or operation of the nuclear power plants. Another problem is the failure of the NRC to require PEF to show its plan for an alternative water source, the interveners contend. Webster warned the NRC judges to beware of the magic bullet because it will not appear somehow. In other words, if no plan exists for an alternate water source, what reasonable person could expect it to exist if it becomes necessary? Webster said if the interveners promised to pay him $1 million in a week for his services, but there was no way for him to see that as being true because the money does not exist, then he would not believe it. Webster said the proposed nuclear power plants are in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the huge expense will create a rate bomb for PEF customers, who will have to shoulder a nancial burden for decades to come. e NRC, Webster said, needs to save Progress Energy Florida from itself. John ONeill, one of the attorneys for PEF, said that like Webster, he appreciates the NRC judicial boards attention to all of the matters brought before it. ONeill put water quantities in perspective. He said three golf courses or one large peanut farm would use 1.58 million gallons of water a day. One previous expert witness for PEF noted that Tampa Bay Water, which includes a large desalinization operation, uses 160 million gallons of water a day and that 90 million of those gallons comes from groundwater. e 1.58 million gallons per day used in the application for a consumptive use permit for these nuclear power plants is 25 percent more than the actual anticipated use, he said. ONeill also spent some time explaining how data shows interveners contention about possible sinkholes and other geological features they allege are not well founded. ONeill said the interveners have made many demands for more testing, but adding countess bore holes for a research project is not required by the rules governing what must be done by the NRC to protect the public and the environment. ONeill said there will be small if any impact on the environment as a result of the construction and operation of the two nuclear power plants. Jody Martin, one of the attorneys for the NRC, said in his closing statement that the evidence and testimony clearly shows the NRC sta conducted the required hard look at the FEIS. Data contained in various U.S. Geological Survey documents, the regional model created by Swiftmud, and the two models created by NRC sta show the government performed its duty, he said. An aquifer performance test in the future and monitoring of the site will show how the aquifer responds to the use of water by the power plants, he said. Reasonably foreseeable impacts were found by the NRC. Sta at the NRC performed a thorough review of the FEIS and, contrary to the interveners assertions, the NRC complied with all requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, Martin said. During part of his opening and closing remarks at the hearing, Karlin expressed his sincere appreciation to Levy County Clerk Danny Shipp and his sta for hosting the hearing. Karlin also said thank you to Eighth Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Robert Roundtree Jr. Karlin said he was thankful to be able to hold the hearing in the county a ected by the proposed nuclear power plants rather than in a courtroom closer to NRC headquarters in Washington. Karlin, who is the chairman of the NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board, expressed his apology to some of the experts who were called to testify during the two days, who never were questioned. e list of people was impressive. In addition to Karlin, Baratta and Charbeneau, the list for the NRC Atomic Safety and Licensing Board included law clerks Matthew Flyntz and Nicole Picard. Sara Culler was among the sta helping too. Attorney Kevin Roach joined Martin for the NRC sta as its attorneys. Other active and potential witnesses for PEF, beyond Hubbell were Dr. Mitchell Gri n, James O. Rumbaugh, Je rey D. Lehnen, Dr. William J. Dunn, Dr. Kevin M. Robertson, Dr. George C. Howroyd, Dr. Eldon Blancher and Dr. Paul C. Rizzo. Attorneys for PEF in addition to ONeill were Michael Lepre, Timothy Walsh, Jen Giblin and Robert Ross. Other active and potential witnesses for NRC sta were Mallecia A. Sutton, Dr. Ann L.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923JournalLevy CountyFederal Judge Grants Preliminary Injunction Halting Enforcement of the HHS Mandate against Michigan Corporation and Its Owner From e omas More Law Center ANN ARBOR, MI Federal District Court Judge Robert H. Cleland of the Eastern District of Michigan, issued an opinion yesterday evening granting a motion for Preliminary Injunction that e ectively halts enforcement of the HHS mandate against Plainti s Weingartz Supply Company and its owner and president, Daniel Weingartz. e motion was brought by the omas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law rm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Erin Mersino, TMLCs lead counsel on the case who presented the oral argument in support of Plainti s, commented, e federal court has found that our clients have a likelihood of success and would be irreparably harmed by the unconstitutional overreaching of the HHS mandate. is is not only a victory for our clients, but for religious freedom. e HHS mandate refers to regulations adopted by the Department of Health and Human Services that forces employers, regardless of their religious convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties. In ruling for the Weingartz Plainti s, Judge Cleland emphasized that [t]he loss of First Amendment freedoms, for even minimal periods of time, unquestionably constitutes irreparable injury. He concluded, e harm in delaying the implementation of a statute that may later be deemed constitutional must yield to the risk presented here of substantially infringing the sincere exercise of religious beliefs. e balance of harms tips strongly in Plainti s favor. A preliminary injunction is warranted. Judge Cleland denied without prejudice the motion brought on behalf of Legatus for reasons stated below. On May 6, 2012, TMLC, led a federal lawsuit challenging the HHS mandate on behalf of Legatus, the Nations largest organization of top Catholic business owners and CEOs, and the Michigan-based Weingartz Supply Company and its president Daniel Weingartz. e motion for Preliminary Injunction on behalf of Plainti s was led on August 15, 2012. Judge Cleland heard oral arguments on the motion on September 28, 2012. Named as defendants in TMLCs lawsuit were Obama administration o cials responsible for implementation of the HHS mandate promulgated under the Patient Protection and A ordable Care Act (Obamacare). Included were: Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services; Hilda Solis, Secretary of the Department of Labor; Timothy Geithner, Secretary of the Department of Treasury; and their respective departments. Judge Cleland reiterated in his written opinion what he told both sides at the beginning of the oral augments on September 28th, namely, whatever ruling he grants, the case will continue to be litigated. Judge Cleland denied the motion for preliminary injunction on behalf of Legatus without prejudice on the grounds that he is not persuaded that Legatus has standing to bring its claim at this time. He cited recent cases where other courts deciding the identical issue found that non-pro t organizations protected under the safe harbor do not have standing because their injury is conjectural. e Government has represented that the HHS mandate regulations are being amended to accommodate the religious liberty concerns of non-pro t organizations like Legatus. Importantly, Judge Cleland noted that in the event the Government acts in a way inimical to the rights Legatus seeks to protect, Legatus can again approach the court with its concerns at that time. Moreover, Judge Cleland directed the government to le a brief statement describing the status of the amendment process for nal regulations occurring under the temporary enforcement safe harbor not later than the rst Monday of each month. TMLCs lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the HHS Mandate under the First Amendment, speci cally the Free Exercise of Religion and Free Speech clauses. It also claims that the HHS Mandate violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 and the Administrative Procedure Act. Although several cases across the country challenging the constitutionality of the HHS mandate have been dismissed by federal courts on technical grounds, Judge Cleland is the second federal judge to grant a motion for preliminary injunction.

Levy County Clerk of Court incumbent and winner Danny Shipp told the Journal, I would like to thank the people of Levy County for electing me for a fourth term. Duly elected winner now of the Dist. 3 county commissioner seat, Mike Joyner, still would not crack a smile for a picture but said, I am so humbled the people of Levy County believed in me. Its rewarding but I couldnt have done it without the support of my family and Levy County. I thank them all very, very much. e sheri s race was a long one but in the end it was Bobby McCallum who wound up on top. As the Journal reporter Michele Bell snapped pictures of McCallum and his wife Kandy, Bobby said, We are very blessed. It was a very resounding victory tonight. Its been a long hard campaign and a long year. Family, friends and supporters we are just so thankful. I am just looking forward to getting to work. I am looking forward to getting the politics out of the way and getting us all on the same page to serve the citizens of Levy County. I am just looking forward to doing that. Its been a goal for awhile and I feel like I have the leadership and the experience and the education to serve them well.

He has had open heart surgery since then and, after some unexpected complications, is on the road to recovery. Kenny will be unable to return to work for several months while he is recuperating. While Kenny, the sole provider of the household is recovering, he has his wife Sherry and young daughter Chloe by his side.

(All funds will go directly to the Luzader family) Even though young people are allowed to hunt and sh in Florida without having to buy a license until they turn 16 years old, a change in the license system now makes it possible for youngsters to voluntarily purchase their licenses early and start contributing today toward conservation. Youths under 16 years of age can now purchase their very rst annual freshwater, saltwater or hunting license, which will remain valid until their 17th birthday, no matter how young they are when they buy it. All three types of licenses are $17. Youre never too young to start contributing to our great states hunting and shing heritage and protecting our wild habitats and resources, said Richard Corbett, a Commissioner with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). And this new ability to purchase a license creates a wonderful opportunity to do just that. Youths under 16 years of age will still have to complete the states hunter safety certi cation before taking advantage of this special license opportunity for hunting. e classes are free. Safety classes arent required for shing licenses. Another opportunity for youths is the $100 Gold Sportsmans license, which authorizes the holder to take game and freshwater or saltwater sh and provides the deer, management area, archery season, muzzleloading season, crossbow season, turkey, waterfowl, snook and spiny lobster (craw sh) permit privileges. For every year that passes until a youth turns 17, the FWC will receive approximately $7 in matching federal funds, which will be used to preserve and manage the nearly 6 million acres of the states public-hunting, wildlife management area system and the states saltwater and freshwater sheries. Go to MyFWC.com/HunterSafety to learn when to register a child for a hunter safety class. e new hunting and shing youth licenses can be purchased at all outlets that sell hunting and shing licenses, such as county tax collectors o ces. ey also can be bought online at License.

But aside from helping Mario grow an extra inch to rescue the princess or serving as an extra avor to a pizza, it is well known in the Sunshine State. e fungus is grown in the state and is shipped across the country. ere are more than 200 species in Florida. A top growing business is Quincy Farms, in the northern area of the state, which produces a variety of mushrooms shipped nationwide. But aside from professionals growing the fungus, mushrooms also can be grown in a backyard, University of Florida Wakulla County Extension Director Les Harrison wrote in an email. ere are several mushroom varieties that can be produced by anyone," he wrote. "Shiitake mushrooms are likely the most well-known home produced variety and is well known by gourmet cooks everywhere. Home growers need oak logs, heavy shade and patience." Shiitake are the second most-consumed mushrooms in the world and are prevalent in an Asian diet. e mushroom itself provides high levels of protein, potassium, niacin and B vitamins and magnesium. e best part about it is that the fungus will remain fresh in the refrigerator for about three weeks. When eating the fungus, it is most commonly sauted, fried, barbecued, baked or even eaten raw. Kenny Luzader

I reckon its been several years now since I pulled over and threatened to whoop anybody. You see, when Jesus came into my life He directed me to spend my transit time in prayer, probably guring it would help keep the casket lid down on my former nature long enough for me to see my way home. Yet, I must admit, there have been times I felt a resurrection coming onlike this morning, when some fellow passed me on the shoulder and broke line. Wisely I took a deep breath and tried to remain calm. I didnt even try to call down re from heaven or anything; although I may have bent the steering wheel a little. As I was praying for this Bozo I noticed the metal bed frame he was hauling in the back of his fancy new truck had come undone. One rail was now swinging freely outside of the bed. It was about to put a disastrous scratch in his shiny new paint. I conceded the decent thing to do would be to tell him. However, I perceived it would be a terribly awkward advancement for me to pull alongside him at this junction. So I decided to wait until we got to a red light. By the time we did, my mind had wandered a bit, and I plumb forgot to pull alongside of the guy. Other cars had lled in. ats okay, I thought, Ill get him at the next light. After the green I swung out to his left and rolled my window down. e Bozo looked at me like I was crazy, and then he ran right through the next yellow light like he was late for the circus! Oh well. Maybe the Lord will get somebody else to tell him. Of course Im not going to lose a lot of sleep over Bozos paint job, but I have had similar experiences in my Christian witness that have really topped my list of regrets. You see, sadly, too many times Ive taken that same Oh well attitude with regards to my responsibility to share the Gospel. e Holy Spirit will often point out some poor fellow, zipping through life, breaking all of Gods laws, in the hopes that I will help him. Yet, how many times have I just stuck my nose up in the air and laughed at the poor clown? e devils always quick to help me justify myself with something like, It would be a terribly awkward advancement for you to pull alongside him at this junction. However, hes also out to make sure some of those folks dont get another chance. Maybe they wont even make it through the next light! I realize witnessing can be a very scary proposition. I certainly dont feel quali ed to be Gods spokesman. I dont know anybody that does. However, 2 Corinthians 5:17-6:10 tells us we are all called to be Christs ambassadors. So there is no excuse for being sel sh with the Truth. Im sorry. I cant nd a loop-hole on this. Even if I did I wouldnt tell you. It would only be cheating you out of one of lifes most precious blessings. (I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35 KJV) But anywaythat old king of road rage crown needs to stay in moth balls. I need to start telling people about the Prince of Peace. ( e Prince who hung between heaven and earth to make peace between God and man.) e best way to get through this rush hour called life with any peace is to roll down your window and direct somebody else to Jesus. As a Christian Ive been entrusted with the map.

Rather than hunting for game, may we recommend setting your sights for the Part D Medicare prescription drug plan thats best for you? Youll have more time than usual this year, because open season is lasting longer than usual.If you currently are enrolled in Medicare and are considering changes to your Medicare Part D plan, act now. e open season runs from October 15 to December 7. e Medicare Part D prescription drug program is available to all Medicare bene ciaries to help with the cost of medications. Joining a Medicare prescription drug plan is voluntary, and participants pay an additional monthly premium for the coverage. While all Medicare bene ciaries can participate in the prescription drug program, some people with limited income and resources also are eligible for Extra Help to pay for monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments. e Extra Help is estimated to be worth about $4,000 per year. Many people qualify for these big savings and dont even know it. To gure out whether you are eligible for the Extra Help Social Security needs to know your income and the value of any savings, investments, and real estate (other than the home you live in). To qualify, you must be receiving Medicare and have: Income limited to $16,755 for an individual or $22,695 for a married couple living together. Even if your annual income is higher, you still may be able to get some help with monthly premiums, annual deductibles, and prescription co-payments. Some examples where your income may be higher include if you or your spouse: Support other family members who live with you; Have earnings from work; or Live in Alaska or Hawaii; and Resources limited to $13,070 for an individual or $26,120 for a married couple living together. Resources include such things as bank accounts, stocks, and bonds. We do not count your house or car as resources.You can complete an easy-to-use online application for Extra Help at www.socialsecurity. gov. Click on Medicare on the top right side of the page. en click on Get Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs. To apply by phone or have an application mailed to you, call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) and ask for the Application for Extra Help with Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Costs (SSA-1020).

With the start of Standard Time on Sunday, Nov. 4, lawn and landscape irrigation was limited to one day per week for residents and others within the Districts 15-county region. e Districts year-round landscape irrigation measures limit watering to two days per week during Daylight Saving Time and once weekly during Standard Time. Residents may choose which day to water but not between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and only as much as their landscape needs. e limits on landscape irrigation are part of an ongoing e ort to help address water needs within the District. e measures apply to residential landscaping, public or commercial recreation areas, and public and commercial businesses that arent regulated by a District-issued permit. e limits apply to those who receive water from utilities, private wells, or surface water. However, they do not apply to users of reclaimed water or water captured in rain barrels. e time change presents a great opportunity to conserve water since in the cooler months grasses and landscapes need to be watered less frequently, For more information about the landscape irrigation measures or to learn more about how to conserve, visit www. mysuwanneeriver.com and look for the water conservation page.

The Levy County Journal6BNovember 8, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 By Tony YoungFlorida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission November means the 2012-13 huntin season is in full swing. In this months column, I cover almost everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove season. e rst thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Floridas many wildlife management areas (WMAs), youll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but dont forget to study the brochure for the speci c area you plan to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules di er greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at tax collectors o ces in close proximity to the WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or going online at License.MyFWC.com. Have your credit card ready. You also can purchase them from tax collectors o ces and most retail outlets that sell hunting and shing supplies. e general gun season runs Nov. 3 Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. 1 Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts anksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer, and in some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular WMA brochure before you hunt. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, theres also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the WMA brochure to be certain. e highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called doe week, is Nov. 17-23 ( anksgiving week) in zones A and C, and it always runs Dec. 26 Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and D. During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe, or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you can during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season. If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for details. Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 17 Jan. 6. In zones B and C, it runs Dec. 1 Jan. 27 and Nov. 3 Dec. 30, respectively. And in Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 22-25 and Dec. 8 Jan. 13, except for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game; you must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for nonresidents) to hunt them. e bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined. Quail season runs statewide Nov. 10 March 3, and the daily bag limit is 12. Shooting hours for deer, turkey and quail are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. All legal ri es, shotguns, muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer, fall turkey and quail seasons. Snipe hunting in Florida ranks second in the nation in number of birds harvested each year, and the season always runs Nov. 1 Feb. 15 statewide. e second phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 10-25. Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset. e bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag limit is 15. You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. e FWC even provides an online Dove Hunters Hotline, which gives up-to-date information on Floridas public dove elds. e address is MyFWC.com/Dove, and it is updated every ursday throughout dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous weeks harvests and eld conditions. Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunting solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom, November brings loads of great hunting opportunities. Heres wishing you a happy anksgiving and a successful hunting season.Give Thanks for November Hunting OpportunitiesOutta the Woods Two escaped panthers were returned to their pen today following their capture by experts from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), White Oak Conservation Center and houndsmen from Ranchers Supply, Inc. e two cats, out tted with radio collars, had been monitored continuously after winds from Hurricane Sandy knocked down a tree onto their enclosure fence where the two panthers, a female and her brother, were being raised at White Oak Conservation Center. e panther experts used telemetry to track the radio-collars on the cats. e animals did not stray far from their pen, according to o cials, and remained on White Oak property during the brief stint outside their pen. We are happy to report that the two are back safe and sound, said Kipp Frohlich, head of the Imperiled Species Management Section at the FWC. e cats were pursued by panther dogs, darted and moved back into their enclosure. ey were both examined by veterinarians and found healthy. e two cats were initially captured when they were 5 months old after being found near the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed in northern Collier County in September 2011. e two kittens, born in May 2011, were trapped by our sta due to the death of their mother, said Frohlich. ey were transferred to White Oak Conservation Center to be raised and prepared for release later this winter back to south Florida, where they were originally rescued, to help continue our panther recovery e orts. e pens are very secluded, and the panthers can be raised with very little contact with people. Five other kittens, three females and two males of similar ages, have been raised at White Oak and released in south Florida. e FWC has a contract with White Oak to care for panther kittens. ey are uniquely quali ed to raise panthers in an environment that maximizes their chances for a successful re-introduction back into the wild, said Frohlich. Scientists estimate that between 100 and 160 adults and subadults remain in south Florida.Escaped Panthers Taken Home to Yulee Panther kittens in 2011 when they were rescued in Collier County.

On the rst day, Larry Campbell caught an 11.25-pound, 26.5-inch-long bass while shing in the St. Johns River with his younger brother, using live shrimp. ey had caught and released several 4to 7-pound bass before Larry broke the 10-pound barrier for the rst time in his 20 years of shing. ey found where they could boast online about their catch and posted it on TrophyCatchFlorida.com, an FWC website hosted by the World Fishing Network (WFN). If only If only Larry had read the rules rst and taken photos of his bass on scales, with the weight showing, and on a tape measure with the length showing, he would have had the rst entry into the new Trophy Bass Club. However, without appropriate photos to verify the weight and length for TrophyCatch, his sh was at least entered into the Big Catch Program. I'll know next time, he responded graciously. ings are just starting to heat up here. anks for the awesome recognition program. On Oct. 9, Marcus Arrendondo caught a 29-inch bass with a girth of 24 inches and estimated at 14 pounds. If only he had called the FWC, toll-free, at 855-FL-TROPHY (855-358-7674) while he had the live sh in his possession, an FWC employee would have come out to examine the bass, ensure it was live-released and healthy, and weigh it on certi ed scales. If it exceeded 13 pounds, it would have been entered into the Hall of Fame. e FWC would have provided a free berglass replica from New Wave Taxidermy and a bundle of other prizes (see below for details). Got one en, on Oct. 16, Corey Dolan got one. He landed a 12.3-pound largemouth bass on Lake Talquin and released it to become the rst entrant in the TrophyCatch program. Dolan started shing at sunrise on his last day o before starting a new job and was rewarded when, around 1:30 in the afternoon, a huge bass struck his arti cial worm. Dolan found TrophyCatchFlorida.com on his smartphone and ultimately connected with the TrophyCatch hotline. FWC biologists arrived an hour later to determine a certi ed weight of 12.3 pounds just short of the Hall of Fame mark (13 pounds), but qualifying for the Trophy Club. Dolan will receive $100 in gift cards from sponsors such as Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods and Rapala Lures, plus a long-sleeve Trophy Club shirt from Bass King, and discounts from New Wave Taxidermy, FishPhotoReplicas.net and SportsmanOnCanvas. com. KP Clements, the FWCs TrophyCatch coordinator, said that as the rst TrophyCatch angler, Dolan will also receive a special one-day pass to sh at the famed Bienville Plantation and is entered into drawings for other prizes. e future e future is bright for angling in Florida. e latest National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Associated Recreation showed an 11-percent increase in recreational shing nationally over the past ve years. Florida remains the No. 1 destination for anglers, and bass are the most popular sh in North America. e future seems even brighter when you hear about young anglers like 11-year-old Louie Echols from Highlands County. Louie caught his rst bass at age 3. He has a stack of Big Catch Angler Recognition certi cates from the FWC, including Specialist, Master and Elite Angler recognitions. He also is the star of an episode of Lunkerville Television, titled Louie, Louie, which airs on WFN. Louie is a passionate reader of shing and natural history books, and is very familiar with Glen Laus Bigmouth and Bigmouth Forever videos. Its not surprising that a youngster like Louie, mentored by a loving grandfather and other family and friends, has a passion for sport shing and desire to conserve our natural resources. While shing from shore with his grandfather, Dan Echols, and while grandpa was starting to pack up, Louie cast a little minnow one last time along the bank. e result? He caught a 14-pound hawg that he released, so she could grow, and perhaps be caught again. A berglass mount of the sh adorns his bedroom wall with his other shing mementos. Personally, I cant wait until we get a call on the TrophyCatch hotline to come certify him into the Florida Bass Hall of Fame. TrophyCatch includes three tiers to encourage reporting and live-releasing bass heavier than 8 pounds that are caught in Florida waters. 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 Clements (see TrophyCatchFlorida.com). However, just for registering, an angler is entered into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, Mercury motor and trailer.
