Nothing beats a ” oat with smiling faces tossing items to the crowds lining the street, except maybe a unique present or something scrumptious to eat. e event in Chie” and lightened up the mood of everyone and ushered in the feel of the holidays as everyone enjoyed the colors and smells of Christmas fare all around. Leading the way and winning awards for all their hard e ort in putting together the wonderful ” oats were: First Place … Joes Rollback and Towing Service; Second Place … Rivercross Cowboy Church; and in ird Place … the Boy Scout Pack #514. All the ” oats showed creativity and initiative and were a joy to watch. Seeing the faces of Janlyn Davis and Lawson Braswell on the toy horses was just too much not to snap a picture of for our readers to see. And the real horses strutted their stu in style as well as our local veterans lending a commemorative ” avor with their ” oat. And even though the GrinchŽ dressed up as Santa Claus, he did not fool anyone as all had a good time anyway! Denny George, Director with the Chie” and Chamber of Commerce who also works for Progress Energy, said, We had approximately 82 vendors, a good crowd, and, of course, the weather was fantastic. Similar crowds to last year. e number of booths were down a little bit but that actually helped with the logistics of the day. It made it easier to manage. We had a good mix of entertainment on the stage and now are looking forward to Santa coming and wrapping up the night.Ž And so were all the youngins looking to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. anks to all the participants and volunteers who made the Christmas Party special and possible. And to our own Michele Bell for some wonderful pictures to share with everyone of the local community relaxing and enjoying our blessings. Merry Christmas to all. See more pictures on page 6-7 A. Christmas in Chie and Parades through Town '*+, e folks at the Haven Hospice rift Store on US 19, across from Chie” and High School, were having a very smelly problem on Monday, December 3 as they reported overwhelming gas fumes to Fire Chief James Harris with Chie” and Fire Rescue. Chief Harris and six “ re“ ghters immediately answered the call which turned out to be at the Texaco station behind the Sav-a-Lot store and next to the Pizza Hut on US 19. At this Texaco station the gasoline tank is above ground and in a containment area. A driver from Brooksville was “ lling the tank when it over” owed 100 gallons of gasoline in the containment area. Chie” and Fire Rescue proceeded to suppress the vapors with foam and called in Fanning Springs Fire Rescue to supply more and help with the procedure. Chief Harris said,  ank goodness there were no ignition sources and the tank was above ground in a containment area. When the tanks are underground the seepage goes into the sewer system but that was not the case this time.Ž e cleanup was left to owner Stoney Smith who was to arrange for his own people to remove the residue of gasoline and foam. At the time our o ce girl-Friday and all around newspaper photo-taker, Michele Bell, was doing errands and took pictures of the de-vaporizing procedures around 2:50 p.m. At that time the students were being let out from CHS across the street and walking home and tra c was moving to and fro with no incident. anks to the quick work of the Chie” and Fire Rescue and Fanning Springs Fire Rescue and volunteers there was no explosive outcome to this accident. '*+, e Levy County Board of County Commissioners met on Tuesday December 4, 2012 in the meeting room with commissioners John Meeks, Chad Johnson, Mike Joyner, Ryan Bell and Chairman Danny Stevens in attendance. First on the agenda was a zoning approval request for the preliminary plat for Nishia Village for Venetha Anderson presented by Development Department Director Rob Corbitt. e plat had been approved at the department level and was now there for the commissioners approval. Director Corbitt mentioned that there had been an objection made to the approval by a private person and when asked by Chairman Stevens as to the nature of the objection Director Corbitt stated: I would prefer that you get that statement from the horses mouth; it was various....Ž Stevens asked if it was sta opposition to which Corbitt replied, Oh, no sir. e plat review committee recommended approval of the plat as submitted and then the planning commission said to send it to you for approval as submitted.Ž Chairman Stevens then went to the public audience attending asking if there was any one who wished to object to the plat approval. ere was none. e preliminary plat was unanimously approved, 5-0. Mr. Gary Bennett, a property owner in Morriston, was a spokesperson for a group of similar property owners in Morriston before the board to address a farm on CR 326 under the direction of Mr. Alan Fant that is currently providing acreage for the dumping of the residue of cleaning Commissioners Do Not Deal with Morriston Composting OperationFumes Told the Tale of the Over owing Gas Tank in Chie andhorse stalls. According to Bennett and the other property owners in the area, the criteria named by Fant to be able to allow the dumping of the old bedding and manure on his property is not being adhered to. Bennett and the group state that the compost is supposed to be used for Farm Operations and Fant is not using the compost material in a usual and customary way of farm practicesŽ as required by the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Chapter 62-709.305. Bennett and the group are presenting a Petition opposing any further ongoing development of what they call a DumpŽ in their area. According to Bennett the DEP was given the project by the Levy County Board of County Commissioners and DEP has given Fant an ExemptionsŽ classi“ cation without concern for our health, economic or environmental issues.Ž e property owners state that the operation has brought about a dramatic increase in ” ies, especially in warm weather; has built up an accumulation of material that is a hazard to their ground water source; is decreasing their land value; produces a very strong foul odor especially when the wind is in their direction; is unsightly and unusual for their area; and the material is not coming from Levy County but from Marion County. According to DEP Chapter 62-709.35 exemptions under Criteria for organics processing and recycling facilitiesŽ there is a list of operations that do not require a permit in order to operate … provided: there is no public nuisance. or any condition that adversely a ects the environment or public health, along with no violation of other state or local laws, ordinances, rules, regulations, or orders. e Morriston property owners believe that Fant is in violation of exemption 2 which identi“ es normal farming operationsŽ since his is not a normal farm operation. And under that same de“ nition of section 2 it states: Composting or anaerobic digestion of yard trash, manure, or vegetative wastes generated from o the farm, for use on the farmŽ as part of agronomic, horticultural or silvicultural operations. e property owners are stating that the stall muck is not from Fants farm as it is being trucked in by any where from 40 to 200 loads per week and it is not being used on the farm at all. It is just sitting there in hills of stall muck. Bennett presented the commissioners with pictures of the property showing what the property owners now consider a dump not a composting facility. e other property owners gave their opposition to the operation before the commissioners. Kathy Jo Rindernecht said her neighbor counted 37 trucks coming to dump stall muck per day and they dump six days per week. Mr. Cecil Benton stated that they cannot even eat outside anymore due to the ” ies. He said they are not inspecting it like they should be doing. Kelly Morgan is a nurse and was concerned that there was no turning of the compostŽ as is proper procedure and she is concerned for her water supply. She states that Marion County would

Christmas Tree Fire SafetyDecorating homes and businesses is a long-standing tradition around the holiday season. Unfortunately, these same decorations may increase your chances of “ re. Following a few simple “ re safety tips can keep electric lights, candles and the ever popular Christmas tree from creating a tragedy. € Dont put your live Christmas tree up too early or leave it up for longer than two weeks. € Place trees away from heat sources, including “ replaces or heat vents. e heat will dry out the tree, causing it to be more easily ignited by heat, ” ame or sparks. € Keep the live tree stand “ lled with water at all times. € Use only non” ammable decorations. € Dont link more than three light strands, unless the directions indicate its safe. Connect strings of lights to an extension cord before plugging the cord into the outlet. € Avoid using lit candles; consider using battery-operated ” ameless candles, which can look, smell and feel like real candles € Ensure that Christmas trees and other holiday decorations dont block an exit way. Chie” and Fire Rescue Chief James Harris warns to check the labels on Christmas lights to make sure they are UL approved. Without the certi“ cation there is no process to ensure that the proper methods were used to build the lights and these types of lights are very often the reason for Christmas tree “ res. Check the label on your lights for the UL label shown here. On November 29th about 2:30 in the afternoon in Dixie County, Linda Sorensen Bond, 63, of Cross City, was riding a 2009 Yamaha XVS650 traveling south on US 19 (SR 55) approaching the area of 23306 SE Hwy US 19 in Old Town at the entrance to Redneck Trailer Sales in the outside/right lane. At the same time, Carolyn M. Tuten, 64, of Old Town, was traveling north on US 19 in her 2004 Toyota 4Runner with passenger Tara L. Tuten, 6, also of Old Town. Tuten attempted to make a left turn across the southbound lanes of US 19 into the entrance of Redneck Trailer Sales within the direct approach path of Bond on the motorcycle causing the front of the motorcycle to strike the right front side of Tutens Toyota. An angled collision occurred and on impact Bond was ejected from the motorcycle and also struck the right side of Tutens Toyota. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, both the motorcycle and Bond came to rest at the point of impact on the roadway. Bond was wearing a helmet. Linda Sorensen Bond was pronounced deceased in the ambulance en route to the hospital. Charges are pending. In Marion County on December 2 around 2:40 a.m. Lanessa N. Riobe, 25, of Orlando, was traveling north on I-75 in her 2010 Toyota Corolla in the center lane. Also traveling northbound on I-75 in the center lane in front of Riobe was a 1993 Honda Civic driven by Eliezer Soto Maldonado, 34, of Ocala, with passengers Debrorah Maldonado, 35, of Ocala, Ana Deliz Maldonado, 10, of Ocala and Eliezer Soto Maldonado, Jr., 12, of Orlando. A slight distance behind the two cars was a 2006 Peterbilt tractor trailer out of Davenport, Florida, also northbound. Riobes Toyota struck the rear of Maldonados Honda causing Maldonado to lose control of the Honda. e Honda struck the center guardrail then traveled back into the northbound lane and stopped due to becoming inoperable. Riobe left the scene. Coming up but unable to see the Honda in the center lane was the tractor trailer which hit the Honda with the front of the Peterbilt. Both vehicles became engulfed with ” ames. Mr. Maldonado and his daughter, Ana, were able to exit the Honda prior to being struck by the tractor trailer. But the mother, Debrorah, and her son, Eliezer Jr., were unable to get out and perished inside the vehicle. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the hitand-run vehicle and driver Lanessa N. Riobe were discovered approximately 20 miles north of the scene. After further investigation, Riobe was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail. Charges were: Leaving the scene of a crash involving death (2) and revoked DWLSR (2).Tra c Fatalities Mar the Christmas Season Operation Gun It Nabs Six Convicted Felons Hunting with Firearms

Bill has been cowboying for over 50 years and has some real stories to tell and they are all true! His grandparents came down to Florida from Georgia when there was nothing left after the War between the States (Civil War). ey loaded up the ox cart with all their belongings and settled in Sanford. And never left. Bill was born between just outside of Sanford and his father worked for what was then, Florida Power and Light. ey had 3 acres of land where Bill had a horse and a milk cow. Bills granddaddy worked other peoples farms and it looks like that bug bit Bill too. His granddaddy never had a drivers license or a car, just a horse for riding or hitching to a wagon. Bill says he remembers learning all about cowboying from his granddaddy, and about tobacco. His granddaddy chewed and spit and Bill said he was always wet after spending a day working and learning. Bill was cowboying at 5 years old and has not stopped since. e “rst ranch he worked on his own was in Bifalo, Florida in 1960. At 20 years of age he married Ms. Jean and according to Bill, she can crack a whip with the rest of em. Bills oldest daughter said they had a rough life but a great upbringing with lots of Cowboys and Indians games, love and hard work. Bill now manages a hunting camp on CR 345 about three miles from Carter Store southwest of Chie”and and it suits him just “ne. Ms. Jean is still working a job. Folks like these are why there is still a great generation. And Bill is going to share his stories with our readers. ese stories will make you laugh, remember and even learn a cracker lesson or two. We hope you enjoy them like we did.The Whip DuelDuring the summer when we was baling hay, Bob hired a couple extra hands. is one guy, Jimmy G., was from Tennessee. He was about 20 years old and wanted to be a cowboy. He bought an old wore-out cow whip. One Saturday afternoon we was at the barn having a cookout. Jimmy G. got his whip out and began poppin it around our feet saying he wanted to have a whip duel. We told him that he was crazy, that someone would get hurt. A few minutes later he cut me across the leg just above my boot. I didnt say a word to him. I just went into the saddle room and pulled my 12-foot buckskin cow whip o my saddle. When I came outside, he was ready. Before he could get his whip o the ground I cut him about 3 times and that “nished the whip duel. I am not a Lash la Rue but I got my “rst cow whip before I started to school. is wasnt the “rst whip Id picked up. Moral: Dont ever bet on another guys game!

I used pictures of the person or thing for my graphics. I also used clay for the Fountain of Youth.Ž Besides the required fort, Anthony Griths included the Seminole Indians, and also Fountain of Youth and Ponce de Len. As far as we know, he was the “rst European to set foot in Florida. He was the “rst to discover Florida and named it.Ž Students in Teri Dixons and Joelene Vinings classes voted for their favorites. ey had to consider the way it looked and how it was presented to their classmates. Maddie Ervin placed 3rd, Anthony was 2nd and Allie Liles came in 1st. Kathy Clemonss and Tina Robertss students also voted. Placing 3rd was Carter Boyd; Chase Eschbach came in 2nd, and Alexandria Noland was 1st. Alexandria made part of her mini-exhibits out of Legos! is is a favorite project among many 4th graders. We can be as creative as we want to,Ž said Chase. I learned that Ponce de Len was looking for the Fountain of Youth.Ž I learned that Henry Flagler designed the railroad to Key West and owned the Florida East Coast Railroad Company. He also designed many buildings throughout Florida,Ž said Carter. Flagler Beach is named for him.Ž Hands-on learningƒevidence proves it helps students not only learn more, but it also helps them retain the information.

5$#.() Fiscal Cli Notes ,4Amid all the political and media hoopla about the “ scal cli Ž crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting. First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on the rich,Ž even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the governments “ nancial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days. And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year? All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting the richŽ to pay their fair shareŽ is part of a big charade. is is not about economics, it is about politics. Taxing the richŽ will produce a drop in the bucket when compared to the staggering and unprecedented de“ cits of the Obama administration. No previous administration in the entire history of the nation ever “ nished the year with a trillion dollar de“ cit. e Obama administration has done so every single year. Yet political and media discussions of the “ nancial crisis have been focussed overwhelmingly on how to get more tax revenue to pay for past and future spending. e very catchwords and phrases used by the Obama administration betray how phony this all is. For example, We are just asking the rich to pay a little more.Ž is is an insult to our intelligence. e government doesnt askŽ anybody to pay anything. It orders you to pay the taxes they impose and you can go to prison if you dont. en there are all the fancy substitute words for plain old spending-words like stimulusŽ or investing in the industries of the future.Ž e theory about stimulusŽ is that government spending will stimulate private businesses and “ nancial institutions to put more of their money into the economy, speeding up the recovery. But the fact that you call something a stimulusŽ does not make it a stimulus. Stimulus spending began during the Bush administration and has continued full blast during the Obama administration. But the end result is that both businesses and “ nancial institutions have had record amounts of their own money sitting idle. e rate of circulation of money slowed down. All this is the opposite of stimulus. What about investing in the industries of the futureŽ? Does the White House come equipped with a crystal ball? Calling government spending investmentŽ does not make it investment any more than calling spending stimulusŽ makes it stimulate anything. What in the world would lead anyone to think that politicians have some magic way of knowing what the industries of the future are? us far the Obama administration has repeatedly investedŽ in the bankruptcies of the present, such as Solyndra. Using lofty words to obscure tawdry realities extends beyond the White House. Referring to the Federal Reserve Systems creation of hundreds of billions of new dollars out of thin air as quantitative easingŽ makes it seem as if this is some soothing and esoteric process, rather than amounting essentially to nothing more than printing more money. Debasing the value of money by creating more of it is nothing new or esoteric. Irresponsible governments have done this, not just for centuries, but for thousands of years. It is a way to take peoples wealth from them without having to openly raise taxes. In” ation is the most universal tax of all. All the pretty talk about how tax rates will be raised only on the richŽ hides the ugly fact that the poorest people in the country will see the value of their money decline, just like everybody else, and at the same rate as everybody else, when the government creates more money and spends it. If you have $100 and, after in” ation follows from quantitative easing,Ž that $100 dollars will only buy what $80 bought before, then that is the same economically as if the government had taxed away one-“ fth of your money and spent it. But it is not the same politically, so long as gullible people dont look beyond words to the reality that in” ation taxes everybody, the poorest as well as the richest. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM OPINION'*4$ Dear State Legislator and Governor, Much of the population rightfully regards the A ordable Healthcare Act as extending far beyond the enumerated powers of the federal government. It is undeniable that there is no power neither enumerated nor delegated to the federal government to compel a citizen to purchase health insurance under threat of penalty of law. For the central government to claim such power denies the very nature of our Republic and makes the Constitutional restraints enacted by our founders null and void. Some claim that it must be submitted to as the law of the landŽ since SCOTUS made its declaration from on high. is admits that we are not a Republic of sovereign States but a monarchy. e Supremacy Clause declares the Constitution to be Supreme, not the federal government.  If the decision of the judiciary be raised above the authority of the sovereign parties to the Constitutionƒ dangerous powers, not delegated, may not only be usurped and executed by the other departments, but that the judicial department, also ƒ.Ž James Madison ,Virginia Assembly Report of 1800 at http://www.constitution.org/rf/vr_1799. htm e founding documents and the men who wrote them make it unequivocally clear that the States have the “ nal word on whether their creation, the federal government, has trespassed its clearly de“ ned boundaries. AND IT HAS. Our States are UnitedŽ in a compact, the Constitution. e States compact created the federal government and dictated its limited and speci“ c powers.

(D # ( ,4One of the big advantages that President Obama has, as he plays chickenŽ with the Congressional Republicans along the “ scal cli ,Ž is that Obama is a master of the plausible lie, which will never be exposed by the mainstream media-nor, apparently, by the Republicans. A key lie that has been repeated over and over, largely unanswered, is that President Bushs tax cuts for the richŽ cost the government so much lost tax revenue that this added to the budget de“ cit-so that the government cannot a ord to allow the cost of letting the Bush tax rates continue for the rich.Ž It sounds very plausible, and constant repetition without a challenge may well be enough to convince the voting public that, if the Republican-controlled House of Representatives does not go along with Barack Obamas demands for more spending and higher tax rates on the top 2 percent, it just shows that they care more for the richŽ than for the other 98 percent. What is remarkable is how easy it is to sh ow how completely false Obamas argument is. at also makes it completely inexplicable why the Republicans have not done so. e o cial statistics which show plainly how wrong Barack Obama is can be found in his own Economic Report of the PresidentŽ for 2012, on page 411. You can look it up. You may be able to “ nd a copy of the Economic Report of the PresidentŽ for 2012 at your local public library. Or you can buy a hard copy from the Government Printing O ce or download an electronic version from the Internet. For those who “ nd that a picture is worth a thousand words,Ž they need only see the graphs published in the November 30th issue of Investors Business Daily. What both the statistical tables in the Economic Report of the PresidentŽ and the graphs in Investors Business Daily show is that (1) tax revenues went up-not down-after tax rates were cut during the Bush administration, and (2) the budget de“ cit declined, year after year, after the cut in tax rates that have been blamed by Obama for increasing the de“ cit. Indeed, the New York Times reported in 2006: An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget de“ cit this year.Ž While the New York Times may not have expected this, there is nothing unprecedented about lower tax rates leading to higher tax revenues, despite automatic assumptions by many in the media and elsewhere that tax rates and tax revenues automatically move in the same direction. ey do not. e Congressional Budget O ce has been embarrassed repeatedly by making projections based on the assumption that tax revenues and tax rates move in the same direction. is has happened as recently as the George W. Bush administration and as far back as the Reagan administration. Moreover, tax revenues went up when tax rates went down, as far back as the Coolidge administration, before there was a Congressional Budget O ce to make false predictions. e bottom line is that Barack Obamas blaming increased budget de“ cits on the Bush tax cuts is demonstrably false. What caused the decreasing budget de“ cits after the Bush tax cuts to suddenly reverse and start increasing was the mortgage crisis. e de“ cit increased in 2008, followed by a huge increase in 2009. So it is sheer hogwash that tax cuts for the richŽ caused the government to lose tax revenues. e government gained tax revenues, not lost them. Moreover, the richŽ paid a larger amount of taxes, and a larger share of all taxes, after the tax rates were cut. at is because people change their economic behavior when tax rates are changed, contrary to what the Congressional Budget O ce and others seem to assume, and this can stimulate the economy more than a government stimulusŽ has done under either Bush or Obama. Yet there is no need to assume that Barack Obama is mistaken about the way to get the economy out of the doldrums. His top priority has always been increasing the size and scope of government. If that means sacri“ cing the economy or the truth, that is no deterrent to Obama. at is why he is willing to play chicken with Republicans along the “ scal cli To “ nd out more about omas Sowell and read features by other Creators Syndicate columnists and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate web page at www.creators.com. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Tips for Successful Online Holiday Shopping A+?4%B6'9J9H6E-6$DI6*9E:$*++Commissioners Do Not Deal continued from page 5A not allow it so now Levy County has the operation. Hal Phillips also gave his opposition. He stated he is glad that Levy County is a right to farmŽ county but it is being abused by Fant. He also stated the commissioners have not done their job on this issue. Just the number of people there to oppose it states that it is a nuisance. Phillips went on to enumerate how the dumping operation has a ected his business, such as, lesions on the eyes of his calves due to so many ” ies causing environmental health problems. Phillips believes there is something the commissioners can do because it is a public nuisance, adversely a ects the environment, a ects public health and he already has experienced that on his calves. According to Phillips, Fant said he uses the manure compost for peanuts but ended up with six-foot weeds and very little yield of peanuts. He also said that normal farming operations include taking the manure produced on the farm and composting it for use on crops. None of this muck is from Fant, it is brought in by dump trucks. Commissioner Joyner asked about the time it takes and what procedures are needed to bring the manure to compost. Phillips stated he did not know the time it takes but does know that it must be turned in order to speed up the operation and there is no turning of the piles going on so it will take much longer for true compost to be achieved. Joyner asked when this dumping operation started and the answer came down to about three years. Mr. Bennett closed remarking that DEP gave Fant an exemption and that should not have happened. He states there are rules and regulations for composting and none of that is being done … no turning, no water application, nothing but piles and more piles. Bennett said he called DEP and all they will say is that Fant has an exemption.Ž County o cials state that Fants operation is normal farming and the county cannot enforce against state law. Fant read his remarks stating he has been part of the family that owns the land for 100 years and that his farm is legal and beyond reproach. He also said the composting operation is weather dependent and does not use nitrogen. He states they turn the piles when there is moisture. According to Fant, there is another composting operation in the area but the objections are being directed at him. Fant states they are reducing the acreage for composting from 40 acres to 16 acres and the large hills people are complaining about are berms they have pushed up to plant bushes and vegetation to cut o the view. Fant said it takes 9 months to a year to naturally compost the stall muck. Other operations add cow manure to speed up the process and provide that nitrogen but they do not want the e ects of the cow manures extra nitrogen. He said they have the process checked every 6 months. According to Fant the most trucks they have had in a week is 200 but that slows way down in the summer. During the winter the horse shows are going on and the show horses from up north are here “ lling the stalls in show barns. Chairman Stevens asked for any more comments or discussion from the board. Commissioner Johnson said he is reluctant to get involved and he believes this country is great because of agriculture. He stated that this is a pro-ag board. He takes exception to the accusation that he has not done his job on this situation. Johnson brought up that lack of nitrogen is Fants problem and that spreading what he has right now actually competes with the crop for any available nitrogen. Without more nitrogen the compost takes longer but it also does not cause nitrogen overload into the water supply. Johnson also brought up increased ” y population all around and the question of land values being a ected. Johnson said, I would like to see you take this down the hall. Argue this with the state as to whether this a normal farming operation. Let the judge decide who has court authority to rule. I do not object to that at all. I am very cautious from the standpoint of this board doing anything and certainly, if we do, I dont want a knee-jerk reaction. We need to go through it slowly. I would like input from respected ag producers in the county to make sure that we do not have any unintended consequences because no good deed goes unpunished in those situations when it comes to bureaucratic policy. If we are going to something, “ ne; but I want Anthony Drews input as the county extension agent.Ž Commissioner Stevens says we have one code enforcer and the state says he is doing the right thing. Stevens asked Phillips if he restedŽ cattle on his property to which Phillips answered no.Ž Stevens stated that not long ago there were people that wanted the operations around Levy County to be stopped from resting cattle on their land and the board did not do that. He stated that he is yielding to DEP since people have the right to do things on their land. He stated that there is a family feud going on and they need to solve it. He said he agreed with Commissioner Johnson. Commissioner Bell said they dont want to compromise their health or water but there is not the evidence needed to prove the allegations. Due to having no testing Bell does have a problem with no regulation in the issue. ere could be some compromises made. According to Bell the board does not have enough information to make a decision on this and they will do their best to solve it. Commissioner Joyner stated that he is in the area all the time and knows all these people and it is nothing new to him and he knows what an eyesore it is. But he agrees with the board 100% about not telling a man what he can do with his land. Joyner thinks it is up to a judge to decide if there is a health or environmental problem. Let the judge decide who is right and who is wrong. He said he respects them all. Commissioner Stevens says they did not solve the problem here today. Bennett again spoke and wants the board to ask DEP why Fant is not in violation of sections D and E. No action was taken during this meeting. The Christmas Trees Constitutional ProtectionA North Carolina community college has backed o its demand a student group selling conifers traditionally decorated in December must refer to them as holiday trees. Administrators at Western Piedmont Community College told members of BEST Society earlier this month they could not use the word ChristmasŽ in their announcement about the tree sale, the proceeds of which will be used to support Angel Tree. On Tuesday, lawyers with legal coalition Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) sent a letter to the school, warning administrators they had violated the students First Amendment rights by censoring the content of their message. On Wednesday morning, the school re-posted a press release announcing the sale on its website, with a headline that reads WPCC Club Sells Christmas Trees!!Ž Its ridiculous that anyone would have to think twice about using the word Christmas as part of a Christmas tree sale,Ž said Matt Sharp, one of the ADF lawyers representing the group. Not only is it perfectly constitutional to use the word Christmas, it is unconstitutional to prohibit use of it. is is another perfect example of the immense misunderstanding that far too many college o cials have about what the First Amendment truly requires.Ž

Brown presented a policy to the Board which was created based on this information. e bonus policy will have an expiration date. All employees would qualify for the bonus, therefore a tiered system was presented and is detailed below: Full-Time Employees $600 Part-Time Employees $300 On-Call Employees $150 Each of the Constitutional Ocers would be responsible for the distribution of bonuses to their employees and it would have to come from the budgets which had already been set for the year.

Cobb Municipal Building 660 E. Hathaway Ave, Bronson FL Mayor: Call Meeting to Order Prayer: Pledge of Allegiance: Roll Call: Present: Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler, Mayor Beatrice Roberts, Councilmen Aaron Edmondson, Berlon Weeks, Jason Kennedy, Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford, Fire Chief Je DiMaggio, Building Ocial Bob Nienegger, Deputy Clerk Susie Robinson, and Clerk Kelli Brettel. Mayor Beatrice Roberts called the meeting to order after the prayer and the pledge she welcomed everyone and thanked them for coming to the nights meeting. APPROVAL OF MINUTES: Aug. 20,2012 Mayor Roberts asked for a motion to approve the minutes from August 20, 2012. Councilman Berlon Weeks motion to approve as written with a second from Councilman Edmondson. Motion approved unanimously. NEW BUSINESS: Mr. Joe Mittauer and Mr. Greg Lange gave a presentation to the Council regarding the possibility of a Bulk Water Service Agreement between Bronson and the Town of Otter Creek. He explained the Town of Otter Creek has a very serious problem with their water being very high in organics, iron and total dissolved solids. Joe went on to explain that the problem with the high organics is that when the water is treated with Chlorine it creates Trihalomethanes which are a carcinogenic and regulated by Department of Environmental Protection. He explained that Otter Creeks numbers for Trihalomethanes are double that allowed. Joe explained the various ideas discussed with the Town of Otter Creek's Council one and the most expensive $2 million plus estimated by capitalized cost but least expensive as far as operation and treatment in the future is the connection between Bronson and Otter Creek. After some further discussion Councilman Weeks asked if Bronson could own the pipe to the Otter Creek City limits. Joe felt that might be a problem but could not answer with certainty. Joe discussed and explained the Otter Creek and Bronson water plant capacity “gures with the Council, stating that Otter Creek normal average day water ”ow is around 54,000 gallons a day, which would add an additional 13.5% to Bronson's capacity “gures. Joe recommended the Bulk Water Agreement based on a maximum day ”ow capacity “gure, that way if Otter Creek ended needing additional capacity the agreement could be re-negotiated. Joe expressed that normal bulk rates are generally 75-80% of the retail rate. After some general discussion regarding water plant operation and “ltration, Mr. Greg Lange asked Mayor Roberts to see if the Bronson Town Council is willing to further discuss this project with the Town of Otter Creek by possibly forming a small committee. Both Councilman Kennedy and Weeks were concerned that in the future how this agreement would aect the Town of Bronson if by chance Otter Creek starts to grow. Councilman Weeks is adamant and stated he does not want to lose the right to the water once it leaves Bronson. He would like to see Bronson have possession of the water up to the City limits of Otter Creek. Mayor Roberts suggested as requested from Joe and Greg a committee comprising of Councilman Weeks, Jimmy Dunford and Mr. Bob Nienegger and Mr. Bill Secoy from Florida Rural Water and maybe two others to move forward with discussions regarding this agreement. Presentation Mr. Bill Secoy Florida Rural Water AssociationDiscussion and explanation of Rates and Capacity Fees. He felt that the Council was on the right track with their proposed resolutions both adopting the capacity fees and then oering a discount. Attorney Warm asked Mr. Secoy if he is using the terms Impact FeeŽ and Capacity FeeŽ interchangeably. Mr. Secoy said that was correct. Attorney Warm questioned another hand out that Mr. Secoy distributed out and wanted clari“cation. Councilman Weeks interrupted and said that the question he had was in regards to the rate study it was stated that capacity fees/impact fees are set for new construction that impact the system. Councilman Weeks concern was that the residence of Bronson will have to connect to the sewer system and they will have to pay a $3,500.00 capacity fee instead of maybe a $500.00 capacity fee. He also stated a sewer system that was primarily paid for by a grant. Councilman Weeks wanted to see dierent options with capacity fees and rates. Councilman Kennedy stated that he wanted to see how rates aected capacity fees and vice -versa. Mr. Secoy went on with his presentation notating an error in adding the connection fee in twice on the “nal draft. Bill then presented another rate analysis dierent from the “rst one which shows a higher base fee, but a lower cost per 1,000 usage fee. Bill said the key is the operating and maintenance costs are built in. Bill recommended to the Council replacing the utility billing software in the future. Bill ran through the water rates and gave examples of some sample billings based on actual usage within the Town. Mayor Roberts asked if this was Bills recommendations for rates. Mr. Secoy con“rmed that statement. Mayor Roberts said and these rates arent “guring in the Town passing or having any capacity fees. Bill then went through sewer rates and showed sample billings. Bill said that the Council could adopt an accelerated tier option which then would be a true conservation type rate schedule. Bill stated that with capacity fees in place they can be used to fund the annual payment for the project or fund capital reserve. Bill touched also on getting the water loss under control. Clerk Brettel asked if there was anything the Town could do to help the citizens get their own water loss under control. Mr. Secoy said yes after the rates and impact fees get set then the Town could start a leak detection program with the help of Florida Rural Water. Bill stated that to be fair and equitable to all citizens the problem that he sees with Bronsons rates is that water has always subsidized sewer and not everyone has the bene“t of sewer. Councilman Kennedy asked about bulk rates, Bill responded again by reiterating to Council not to give anything away. He said that typically bulk rates would illuminate a portion of “xed costs in both water/ sewer rates and capacity fees. OLD BUSINESS: Personnel Policies & Procedure manual revisions. Clerk Brettel asked if there were any more changes to the draft. Council was in agreement it looked good. Clerk Brettel said she will then bring it before Council on September 24, 2012 for “nal adoption. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: Mr. Kenny Rees with Waste Pro and Mrs. Dayna Miller came before council to address the solid waste renewal. He proceeded by stating at last meeting there was discussion regarding Waste Pro providing containers to the entire town. He said that he has spoken to the owner and Waste Pro would be able to provide containers for free. Mrs. Dayna Miller then discussed that with that they would add the containers to the renewal. Dayna then recapped the items on the renewal that she and Clerk Brettel discussed. She again stated that Waste Pro enjoyed a long relationship with the Town and wanted to continue that relationship. Dayna asked the Council to consider the renewal amendment which is a 5 year renewal. She said they are not raising the rates at all. ey will maintain the rates but did ask for consideration on the second and fourth year a CPI adjustment. Councilman Weeks asked what the CPI actually equates too. Mrs. Miller said that it normally is around a 2%-3% adjustment across the board. Councilman Kennedy asked if the RFP was sent out. Attorney Warm said if the renewal is not built into their contract, but his impression is that the Council already determined that they were going to put out a Request for proposal (RFP). He said he suggested if the RFP hadnt already gone out to adjust the things that you wanted so you got prices that re”ect those special items and be competitive. Clerk Brettel said all those items are already in the RFP. Attorney Warm said the RFP procedure has been initiated and needs to be followed through. Clerk Brettel stated that when these RFPs get considered the Town look to scale down how many tiers of customers are in the billing, so that there is just one family rate instead of a multiple. She said it is just too hard to keep up with from a billing stand point. Councilman Kennedy asked if we are covering cost from the administrative end, Clerk Brettel said yes it just is another function of the billing software which she would like to replace in the near future. Mayor Beatrice Roberts thanked both Mrs. Miller and Mr. Rees for coming and making the presentation. Mr. Bill Brown with the Childrens Table, Inc. addressed the Council asking to allow e Childrens Table to operate a family BINGO game to help cover their expenses. Mr. Brown said they pick up food all over the State such as Starke and Palatka. He said it is something he has really not wanted to do, but with the economy and the numbers that the Childrens Table are feeding it leaves him no choice but to try. He said there will be no hired employees or anyone from outside the community that will participate in the operation of the BINGO game. Councilman Weeks stated that he was sorry but the Council has passed an ordinance stating that there will be no gambling within the Town of Bronson. He said the Council has turned away two Internet Cafes and if the Council allowed him to operate BINGO it would open the Town up for a possible law suit. Mr. Brown responded that Town Hall told him that it quite possibly can be done. Mayor Roberts asked Attorney Warm for advice. Attorney Warm said he did some research and as the gentlemen said it can be authorized by the Council. As far as whether it con”icts with what Council has already passed. He said that neither literally or legally one excludes the other. Attorney Warm said that you do not need a state license anymore to operate a BINGO. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler asked how the game would be run. Mr. Brown said they havent decided how the actual game will be operated until they have gotten continued on page 10

Mr. Bob said that what he has looked at as long as the BINGO is for a non-pro“t he didnt see where there was any problem. Councilman Kennedy said there is a “ne line when you talk about a fund-raiser or form of 50/50. He didnt want this to evolve into more than what the Town expects. He said he is split on this because he can see it as a slippery slope. Councilman Weeks said that the Council went to great lengths to not allow Internet Cafe in Town. Mr. Bill Brown said that this is a serious problem in Bronson and they just need a source of income. Councilman Edmondson made a motion to allow e Childrens Table to operate BINGO to oset their expenses subject to statutory restrictions, requirements, and limitations. Vice Mayor Schuler seconded the motion to allow. Motion passed 3-2 with Councilman Kennedy and Weeks voting nay. Mayor Roberts broke the tie with a favorable vote. BRONSON PARKS AND RECREATION: Nothing to report PUBLIC UTILITIES: Public Works Director presented a Parking lot quote for Library. Councilman Weeks asked if a bid has been let out for this project, Public Works Director said no, it has not. Councilman Edmondson said that when he heard about this he wanted to consider another project also to save on the cost of the cement. Public Works Director explained the pooling problem on Pine in front of Mr. Jerry Mongos house to the Council. Councilman Weeks suggested catch basins. Mayor Roberts asked Mr. Bob if an engineer report would be required for this project. Mr. Bob said not really, he said there was a sub division approved several years ago and there would be water retention in that area, this would be temporary until someone develops that sub-division. Mr. Bob said you could deter the water across the road with a pipe and then put a catch basin in and you would be covered. Council directed Jimmy to get more bids on the project and bring it back to council. Jimmy had nothing more to report. Councilman Weeks asked Jimmy to update the Council on his progress on his operator education certi“cation with the sewer and water. He responded by saying he hasnt had time lately. Councilman Weeks said that we still are paying $20,000.00 a year and he has been asking for 5 years so he is equating that to $100,000.00. Jimmy wanted Councilman Weeks to come in to further discuss this and other issues regarding the department. Councilman Weeks didnt feel there was anything to discuss. Jimmy said he had a little over 200 maintenance hours. After some heated discussion regarding Jimmy getting available time to spend so he can shadow the operator. Councilman Weeks wanted Jimmy to report monthly on his progress. Jimmy again asked for a meeting. Councilman Weeks again didnt see the need. Jimmy sat down and Mayor Roberts moved on. INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE: Councilman Weeks had nothing to report INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE: Councilman Kennedy had nothing to report. ATTORNEY REPORT: Attorney Warm had nothing to report. FIRE DEPARTMENT: Chief Je DiMaggio asked permission for the Fire Fighter I class to be held in the Council Chambers until the County could make other arrangements. ey would start October IŽ, 2012. Je said he did tell them there would be some stipulations as to the Council Chambers. Vice Mayor Schuler said he would have to say no, because we werent letting anyone else use the facilities. Je updated the Council saying that we have lost a couple of our part-time “re “ghters and asked if he could advertise for replacements. He then said it was time for our annual inspection on extrication equipment which will run approximately $600.00. Mayor Roberts asked for a motion to allow for the extrication equipment testing. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow. Councilman Edmondson seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously. Je then asked for permission to get quotes on individual SBA Mask, he would like to purchase (4) four. He would really like all combat “re “ghters who actually go into a building to have one. Je ended up with a staph infection from using a mask not cleaned properly. Je said he has gotten a price of $420.70 per mask. Councilman Kennedy moved to allow Je to purchase 4 masks. Councilman Edmondson seconded, motion passed unanimously. He then updated the Council on the Radio System change the County is going through with the 800 megahertz radio. He feels he has enough radios to out“t the entire sta. Je then wanted to report the stang issues he is having with Ryan Barr and Rico Johnson saying they are not responding to calls and not participating in training or meetings. He said that in his SOGs he is to notify Council before sending a letter which is what he is doing. Mayor Roberts told Je that the mail is still not getting picked up at the post oce. Chief DiMaggio said that he wants to direct the mail to come to Town Hall. Mayor Roberts then brought up the issue regarding the Television that was purchased. Je said that Jerry went to buy the approved air condition and get pricing on TVs. Mayor Roberts said it was the principal that Jerry bought a TV without being approved or making a call. Councilman Weeks said that Jerry has been a government employee for so long that he knows what he did was wrong. Councilman Weeks says he should be reprimanded and all purchases should be made by the Chief. CLERK REPORT: Clerk Brettel went over informational items with the Council. She then asked for direction regarding the use of the Dogan S. Cobb Municipal Building.

He said that they will be meeting on a monthly basis and wants them to start reporting to Council. He also said they are in the process of getting prices on the gates. Clerk Brettel asked Attorney Warm regarding the taping of the committee meetings. She wanted to know if it was necessary that she or Susie be there since overtime is a issue. Attorney Warm didnt think it was necessary for the Clerk to attend the committee meetings. Councilman Jason Kennedy wanted to get estimates on security systems for the park. Councilman Weeks recommended Tiger Direct Online. Jason then addressed the e-mail about the lights getting knocked out. Clerk Brettel said that the whole light “xture was damaged on 6-8 lights around Dunn and Hirst Street. Clerk said that Central Florida recommended getting the Sheri involved. Councilman Kennedy asked if the ad made it into the Florida League of Cities bulletin. He then asked about the house that was deemed a health hazard and wanted to follow up on that trailer also.

Clerk Brettel asked for direction regarding the rental of the Council Chambers.

Hunter Kline, on the left, placed “ rst in the SpicyŽ category and Matt Brannan, on the right, placed third in the SpicyŽ category. Congratulations to our spicyŽ Public Safety cooks. L to r: Hunter Kline and Matt Brannan of the Levy County Public Safety Department can cook some mighty spicy chili.Public Safety Crew Wins Awards for Spicy Chili e Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs program in Williston has been dropped by the VA according to a release from the VA. Conditions at the facility and with the dogs themselves are identi“ ed by the VA in the release below printed in its entirety:  e Service Dog for Veterans with PTSD research study is continuing but new pairings of service dogs with veterans is on hold until a new source of service dogs can be identi“ ed. Additional dog health and training safeguards will be added. is action was taken because of a surprise site visit to the Guardian Angels Medical Service Dog, Inc. (GAMSD) facility in Williston, FL (Levy County) performed on July 31, 2012. at visit uncovered signi“ cant problems with the health of the dogs, including:* Refusal to take dogs to a veterinarian for conditions such as severe eye injury and severe ear wounds despite sta requests for such care; Inadequate worming practices causing parasite infection of dogs on the property with potential to infect people; A lack of industry-standard screening procedures resulting in dogs being paired with clinical evidence of hip dysphasia; Inadequate diagnosis and treatment of skin sores and other medical conditions; Many dogs with very low body weights, and at least one showing signs of di culty standing due to very poor health; Lack of a medical oversight and inadequate input from a veterinarian. Fecal samples collected during the visit were positive for animal diseases that can be given to humans ese included parasites and salmonella bacteria. VA has been working with local veterinary clinics to make sure recently paired dogs are not a threat to the health of veterans or their families. Due to these problems and other signi“ cant contract violations, new pairings were o cially stopped on August 9, 2012. e entire VA contract with GAMSD was o cially stopped on August 31, 2012. VA has had no contract with any dog vendor since this time. Because of the risk of infectious agents like salmonella on the property, problems with hip dysphasia, other health problems, and new behavior problems reported in the dogs, VA does not recommend that any veteran obtain a dog from GAMSD. VA also does not recommend that Veterans visit the property, particularly with children or family members with reduced immune systems. Veterans already paired with dogs will continue to participate in the study. e study has not been stopped. Before new pairings can resume, one or more contracts with additional health monitoring and performance guidelines will be needed. A full and open contract competition will be done to “ nd the best possible service dogs for the study. is is expected to take at least 9 months. VA sincerely regrets that veterans on the pairing list will once again have to wait for a dog. We also sincerely regret any stress that the Veteran has had because of the problems from service dog vendors. e health and safety of Veterans and dogs must continue to be our most important concern as we move forward.Ž Stephanie McGovern, Veterans Administration Local veteran, Michael Gaither who is paired with Honey the Wonder Dog, as many have all come to call her, said he has discontinued any and all a liation with the Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs program. He says these dogs have been microchipped, paid for by the VA, but the ownership of the dogs was not changed as the VA originally believed the facility to be a good place for the dog to be automatically returned to in case of emergency. Now, with the cancellation of any continued relationship between the VA and Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs and its originator Carol Borden, his dog Honey, who also has a microchip, would be returned to Bordens facility in case of an emergency instead of the VA for placement with another veteran. Any attempts by veteran recipients of service dogs to change the microchip information has been met with negative results at PetLink, the microchip organization, since Borden has refused to allow any changes to the microchip information. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is hosting two webinars in December to gather public testimony and input on the potential creation of saltwater game “ sh and sport “ sh designations. e online meetings are from 6 to 8 PM on Dec. 10 and 12 To participate in a webinar, visit http://fwc.adobeconnect.com/mfm/ at the start of each meeting. e designation issue will also be a topic of discussion at the Commissions Dec. 5 meeting in Apalachicola. Reasons for considering these changes include helping highlight and protect some of Floridas premier recreational “ sh and encouraging anglers to practice voluntary conservation practices such as catch-andrelease. If adopted, these changes could lead to healthier “ sh populations and help Florida market its unique “ shing opportunities to residents and visitors. Suggested parameters for game sh include no commercial harvest, possession or sale; sh could be targeted only with hook and line; and captain and crew of for-hire vessels such as charter boats would have a bag limit of zero and would not be allowed to take sh home for themselves e sport “ sh designation would o er a higher level of protection than game “ sh by making selected species catch-and-release only, including no recreational harvest as well as no commercial harvest, possession or sale. Sport “ sh could also be targeted by hook and line only. If game “ sh and sport “ sh designations are approved, sta will return to future meetings with suggestions for potential “ sh species candidates.

We then witnessed a colossal rewriting of our founding documents in the majority opinion to the Obamacare mandate. Justice John Roberts in a few lines pulled down the pillars of the Republic and set us on the path to totalitarianism. Nearly half of the population rightfully regards this legislation as extending far beyond the enumerated powers of the federal government. e truth is, not only should the Sates be able to deal with their own health insurance issues, but the federal government has no legitimate authority to rule by such dictates. Yet, many who vowed to “ ght it to the endŽ have now acquiesced and declared that it must be submitted to as the law of the land.Ž So is this the end? Since SCOTUS made its declaration from on high, must we now bow to an all-powerful government, from which no area of our daily life is o -limits? Or is there a remedy yet remaining? Can the States legitimately resist federal law or is this treasonousŽ as some have suggested? To answer these questions we must “ rst understand the nature of the Republic we call the United States. ese States are UnitedŽ in a compact, the Constitution. is compact, or contract, made among the States not only the created the federal government but also dictated the limited and speci“ c powers delegated to the federal government by the parties of this contract. Secondly, since the States are the parties to the compact and the creators of the central government, then the States, naturally, are the masters of their creation. at is to say, they are sovereign independent of, separate from and sovereign over the federal government. All of the powers not delegated to the federal government remain with the States and the people. e 10th Amendment makes that very clear.  e powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.Ž 10th Amendment to the US Constitution It is upon this foundation that the States have the ultimate right to stand against ANY unconstitutional law created or enforced by the federal government. e 10th Amendment declares that the federal government is to only operate within their delegated powers. James Madison explains those delegated powers in Federalist Paper #45:  e powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and de“ ned. ose which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and inde“ nite. e former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, continued to page 5BJournalYour Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Levy Countycall 352-490-4462 or email advertising@ levyjournal.com

Condolences may be o ered by visiting our website at www.hiers-baxley.com Fishing with the Light of the WorldYou string many more lights around the boat and well end up shooing away helicopters all night,Ž I joked. My friend Gerry looked up from the tangle of cords at his feet, You want to catch big crappie dont you?Ž Who was I to argue? Id never done any night “ shing. Gerry had enough crappie in his freezer at any given time to feed the multitudes. Yeah well,Ž I murmured, Whatever you say. Youre the Crappie Kid.Ž He nodded.  ey call me the Bream Reaper,Ž I boasted, not to be outdone. Yeah, yeahƒŽ he said throwing out another string of bulbs. Soon the boat was glowing like a Griswalds family Christmas. We baited up and let down our corks for a draught. Othern the low hum of that nuclear reactor powering our force “ eld, it looks like we might have a quiet night,Ž I commented. Gerry shrugged, acknowledging we were the only boat on the lake. I wish I had some sun blockƒŽ Will you shut up a minute and stop scaring the “ sh!Ž Gerry bristled. I sulked a few seconds before adding, It aint like they cant see us.Ž Soon, just as Gerry had advertised, the water around the boat came alive with activity. Bait“ sh, drawn to the lights, began circling us. ey drew a variety of other larger “ sh; each darting about working their selves up into a wild feeding frenzy. Within minutes we were wrestling some nice crappie into the boat. ats when we heard the growl of big motor. I looked up to see two tiny lights ” ickering like a pair of small candles coming across the black lake. It was a boat, a big boat. It zoomed up on us and almost ” ushed our smaller craft. I hit the deck and came up ready for a “ ght. What in the world?Ž I started. en I realized it was a Game Warden. I noticed you two fellows dont have your running lights on,Ž he said working his thumbs under his gun belt, I could give you a ticket for that.Ž Gerry and I lowered our welding goggles and shot each other a puzzled look. You dont want to have some boat run up on you out here in the dark now do ya?Ž he asked. Ahhƒ no sir,Ž I managed, still sur“ ng his wake, If you dont mind me asking, howd you catch us?Ž He eyed me careful, Son, dont nothing get past me. I spotted you boys from way down at the other end of the lake.Ž ereve been other times in my Christian walk when Ive been left just as speechless. Like the time I was running myself ragged trying to shine for the Lord and some fellow I barely knew, who usually managed to shadow our church stoop about two or three times a year, threw a humungous guilt trip on me for not o ering to help him rebuild his transmission. Well, I guess I could squeeze you in a week from next Saturday if I cancel my nursing home visit,Ž I conceded, looking up from the altar and the person I was praying for. Nawƒ just never mind,Ž He said, I wouldnt want you to go out of your way for a brother.Ž As he stomped o grumbling something about hypocrites I spent the next twenty minutes wishing I would have mentioned, I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT CARS!Ž If youve struggled with this too, I hope what Im about to say will set you free. We are not called to please everybody. We are called to please God.Ž e moochers of this world, and the self-proclaimed fruit inspectors who patrol the body of Christ should not be dictating our calendars. We should not led by condemnation, or even our own good intentions. Frankly, we are called to be led by the Holy Spirit. Yes, Jesus washed the disciples feet, but He didnt cancel the Sermon on the Mount to do it. Everything He did was decently and in order, according to His Fathers plan. Somehow I cant picture Jesus missing the Last Supper because He was pressured into helping some Pharisee change the oil on his camel. We simply cant please everybody. Jesus lived an absolutely perfect life, and He couldnt! (Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? John 10:32 KJV) Let me say it again, We are not called to please everybody. We are called to please God!Ž But anywayeres only one person youll have to stand before on Judgment day, and His light will draw all the “ sh youre supposed to catch. ( en spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

The Levy County Journal 5BDecember 6, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 negotiation, and foreign commerce ƒŽ Federalist Paper #45 se at: http://avalon.law.yale.edu/18th_century/fed45.asp Madison then goes on to explain  the powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of a airs concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State. Ž Federalist Paper #45 erefore, the 10th Amendment in conjunction with Madisons explanation makes it clear that the States powers are numerous, the federal powers are few, and the federal government has no business interjecting itself into the powers reserved to the States. To claim the 10th amendment says anything else would make the Constitution a complete absurdity. Since there are no areas of power that are simply ” oating out in the neutral zone waiting for someone to use them, if the federal government uses a power that was not Constitutionally delegated, it must steal it from the States. When the federal government does this, it removes power from the States, rights from the people, and makes the Constitution completely meaningless. Such overreach sets the precedent that no power is reserved to the States and that all power is open for federal taking. is e ectively nulli“ es the 9th and 10th Amendments, and destroys the Constitutional barriers established to contain a limited and de“ ned federal government. What will then be the federal governments limitations? Nothing but its own will.  at they will view this as seizing the rights of the States, and consolidating them in the hands of the general government, with a power assumed to bind the States, not merely in cases made federal, but in all cases whatsoever ƒthat this would be to surrender the form of government we have chosen and live under one deriving its powers from its own will and not from our authorityƒŽ omas Je erson, Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 see at: http://www.constitution.org/cons/kent1798.htm is is, in essence, what Justice Roberts declared in his opinion on Obamacare, overturning the very purpose of the Constitution itself … to enumerate the powers of a limited central government and bind it under the authority of the States. What happens when the barriers of the Constitution are completely swept away? e federal government will now have the ability to exercise any power over the States whatsoever. e people will be rendered completely powerless and irrelevant. What will be the purpose of elections then? We will no longer be a republic, but a government ruled as a Kingdom. ƒfor the federal government to enlarge its powers by forced construction of the constitutional charter which de“ nes them ƒso as to destroy the meaning and e ect of the particular enumeration which necessarily explains and limits the general phrasesƒ the obvious tendency and inevitable result ƒwould be, to transform the present republican system of the United States into an absolute, or, at best, a mixed monarchy .Ž James Madison, Virginia Resolutions 1798 see at: http://www.constitution.org/ cons/virg1798.htm So, when the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of the federal government have collectively torn through the boundaries set by the Constitution, and the people have no recourse in the federal system, what is the remedy? What is the proper course when the federal government has gone rogue? e drafter of the Declaration of Independence, omas Je erson and e Father of the Constitution, James Madison speak very clearly on the position of the States as the sovereign defenders of the foundations of our Republic. It is the founders of the Republic who must give us our remedyƒ James Madison gives us this answer regarding the remedy to the states for combating federal overreach. In fact, according to our founders, it was not only the remedy but the DUTY of the states to stand in defense of the Republic. ƒin the case of deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers not grantedƒthe statesƒhave the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose, ƒfor maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights, and libertiesƒŽ Virginia Resolutions of 1798 James Madison What is this interposition? It is what Je erson referred to as NULLIFICATION of the unauthorized acts of the federal government. It is the States declaring,  e federal government is NOT our master, the States and the people are the masters of the Constitution and we do not have to, nor will we comply!Ž Whenever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void and of no force.Ž omas Je erson, Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 Nulli“ cation is legitimate act of refusing to implement unconstitutional federal directives.  at the several states who formed [the Constitution] being sovereign and independent have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and, at a nulli“ cation by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under the color of that instrument, is the rightful remedy.Ž omas Je erson, Kentucky Resolutions 1799 To deny the States this right is tyrannical and is an unconstitutional doctrine. In fact our founders believed that if the States did not refuse to submit to unconstitutional use of 310 Dock Street, Cedar Key 352-543-5738 ALL YOU CAN EAT SEAFOOD All day EverydayALL YOU CAN EAT SEAFOODFriday & Saturday Night 5 to 10 p.m.ALL YOU CAN EAT SEAFOODFriday Night 5 to 10 p.m. 352-490-4906352-486-38806 a.m. to 10 p.m.7 DAYS A WEEK6 a.m. to 10 p.m.7 DAYS A WEEK11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 7 DAYS A WEEK1/4 mi.

Together, members of e American Legion, e American Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of e American Legion, and the American Legion Riders make up what is known as e Legion Family. All four organizations place high importance on preserving our American traditions and values, improving the quality of life for our nations children, caring for veterans and their families, and perhaps most importantly, teaching the fundamentals of good citizenship. It is no secret that WW II veterans and Korean War era veterans have long been the backbone of Post 91. Unfortunately these loyal members are now few in number. Post 91 encourages quali“ ed veterans from the Vietnam War era, Lebanon/Grenada con” icts era, Panama con” ict era, and the Persian Gulf con” icts era to join and get involved. Many local veterans may be unaware that anyone who has served since 1990 is now eligible (in addition to other war eras) and includes National Guard and Reserve veterans. Be proud you qualify!! American Legion Post 91 is forming an American Legion Riders chapter for military veterans who served honorably anywhere during the Congressionally-designated wartime eras and have a motorcycle. Sons of American Legion members are also eligible. e “ rst group will be considered charter members. Contact our Legion Rider chairman Richard Czarniak or our 2nd Vice Commander Sherry Hayes-Luzader. Post 91 invites all of our Legion members and Auxiliary members to our Post 91 Christmas Party during our monthly meeting on urs., Dec. 20. A traditional Christmas turkey dinner will be served and a gift exchange of a gift which not over $10.00 in value and not gender-speci“ c.

Unwilling to shrink from our representative responsibilities ƒ It would be [deceitful] in those entrusted with the GUARDIANSHIP OF THE STATE SOVEREIGNTY, and acting under the solemn obligation of the following oath, „ I do swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States,Ž „ not to warn you of encroachments, which, though clothed with the pretext of necessity, or disguised by arguments of expediency, may yet establish precedents which may ultimately devote a generous and unsuspicious people to all the consequences of usurped power.

Revolution does not save the Constitution, it can only destroy it. ere must be another peaceful resolution; and there is: It is called Nulli“ cation. For the federal government or the States to deny this method of constitutional remedy is to say they are resolved to the destruction of the Constitution and the potential of driving its people to revolution. ƒour Constitution is most worthless and tyrannical, if the usurpations of those who administer it, cannot be resisted by any means short of revolution. I have always considered the reserved powers of the States, as the only real check upon the powers of the federal government; and I have always considered it, not only the right, but the imperious duty of the States, so to apply that check, as not to dissolve the Union. And I have never been able to discover any mode of doing this, except by the positive refusal of the States to submit to usurpationsƒŽ Judge Able P.

Address of the General Assembly to the People of the Commonwealth of Virginia, January 23, 1799 erefore, in upholding their oath the States must stand against any legislation that serves to steal power from the state, thus destroying the Constitution. If the States fail to stand against this tyrannical use of power by the federal government, they will consent to their own destruction, or worse, to revolution. Let history be consulted; let the man of experience re” ect; nay, let the arti“ cers of monarchy be asked what further materials they can need for building up their favorite system.Ž Address of the General Assembly to the People of the Commonwealth of Virginia, 1799 See at: http://oll. libertyfund.org/?option=com_staticxt&static“ le=show.php% 3Ftitle=1908&chapter=112444&layout=html&Itemid=27

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or having a few extra days to celebrate with family and friends, coming up with appropriate presents can be a challenge. e key to gift-giving is matching the gift to the individual, while making sure it is something theyll enjoy, is hopefully good for them and not too expensive. And if it helps Mother Nature too, maybe thats the perfect gift. With that in mind, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has several suggestions for your holiday shopping. How about an o ering guaranteed to create a happier, healthier and more productive lifestyle? Richard Louv, chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network and author of  e Nature PrincipleŽ and Last Child in the Woods,Ž has made a solid case, supported by years of research, that connecting with nature results in those bene“ ts. Being able to spend time in nature brings people of any age back to the roots connecting them with the nurturing earth. In a time when frantic schedules, enclosed spaces and constant noise tend to drive us a little crazy, it is a real gift to get outdoors and relax with family and friends, get moving to burn o some excess holiday calories and open the door to better communications. To start, how about planning a nature hike or “ shing trip? Perhaps more than any other form of recreation, “ shing and boating are critical to the health and well-being of Americas outdoor heritage,Ž according to the Outdoor Foundation. By boat and on land, the “ rst outdoor experience for many Americans is “ shing, introducing tens of millions of people each year to the wonders of nature. Fishing also serves as an important bridge and top gateway activity that leads participants to other outdoor passions.Ž So why not invite your family and friends on a fun “ shing trip, right here in Florida … the Fishing Capital of the World (FishingCapital.com)? An annual resident “ shing license is easy to obtain at License.MyFWC.com, by calling 888-FISH-FLORIDA or visiting a local retailer that sells “ shing tackle and licenses. A “ ve-year freshwater “ shing license makes an especially great gift. While you are purchasing the license, you will have the opportunity to make a donation to the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network to help the FWC with Creating the next generation that cares.Ž An annual freshwater “ shing license costs just $17. Since the average angler “ shes 17 times a year (U.S. Census Bureau research) and enjoys four to “ ve hours on a typical trip, the cost is less than a quarter per hour of fun and healthy recreation. When you purchase a license you are also providing a gift to nature and future generations of anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. For 75 years, the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program has guaranteed that “ shing license fees are protected by law and can only be used for “ sh and wildlife conservation. Moreover, fees collected by the federal government on “ shing tackle, pleasure boats and motor boat fuels provide additional funding for recreational “ shing and conservation. While putting a “ shing-related gift pack together, you can “ nd lots of information about “ shing tips and gear at MyFWC.com/Fishing, along with “ shing sites and up-to-date forecasts. One of the most fun tips is to have everyone register for Floridas freshwater angler recognition programs, including TrophyCatch and Big Catch, at TrophyCatchFlorida.com. When you register, you become eligible for a Phoenix 619 Pro bass boat and trailer, with a Mercury outboard and Motor Guide trolling motor. at drawing will be in October 2013. However, for the hard-core freshwater anglers who travel from all across the world to “ sh Floridas fresh water, the ultimate catch is a trophy largemouth bass. e FWC and corporate partners reward anglers for reporting those “ sh and then releasing them to challenge another angler and to keep the “ shery thriving. To learn more and keep informed, please likeŽ us at Facebook. com/TrophyCatchFlorida. Another great gift that will help anglers boast about their sport while supporting conservation is a Go FishingŽ largemouth bass specialty license plate for their vehicle or trailer. Simply go to Buyaplate.com, or purchase a gift certi“ cate at an authorized motor vehicle o ce. Enjoy your holidays and a lifetime of active nature-based recreation.
