It chronicles the daily lives of its residents and has done so since the days of the Great Depression in 1928. Unlike other newspapers in the county that were begun around the same time, the Levy County Journals name has never changed nor has its purpose as the newspaper of record for the entire county. e rst available issue of the Journal appears on microlm at University of Florida library for May 1, 1928 with Roy B. Child listed as publisher and editor, and is also documented by Search for Yesterday, a History of Levy County, Florid a. From its creation, the Journal was always published in the county seat of Bronson. e original publisher, Roy B. Child, was from Moore Haven, Florida, where he published e Glades County Democrat before coming to Bronson. e ownership of the Journal was left in trust after his death in the mid-1950s to his four daughters, Betty, Neva, Anna Bea and Royala. Childs brother-in-law, Elton Cobb, leased the newspaper from the trustees and served as editor for several years. Cobb purchased the Journal in the early 1960s, according to Search for Yesterday Cobb was an icon in the Levy County Courthouse. He was seen for decades walking down the main hallway of the rst oor headed for the clerks oce to pick up news and legal advertising. e county commission for decades listed all its legal advertising with Cobb and the Levy County The Levy County Journal encourages the publicto attend Tuesdays 9 a.m. Levy County Commission meeting on March 22 at the Levy County Courthouse to support the Levy County Journals request to be named the newspaper of record and designated for publication of county commission legal advertising and the delinquent property tax list.

A crowd estimated at about 1,000 people on both days witnessed the ghting up close and personal at Kirby Farms, with soldiers blasting away at each other within a few feet of the crowd and some falling as if dead or mortally wounded. e Civil War reenactment was a demonstration battle, and not an actual replay of battle, as was the case at Olustee a few weeks ago. In both cases, the reenactment was performed for the entertainment of the crowd and to keep alive the memory of what happened 150 years ago in the War Between the States. By sheer coincidence, the reenactment at Kirby Farm occurred about a quarter mile east of Limbaugh Cemetery where Confederate soldier Rufus K. Limbaugh was buried until recently. Limbaugh was a veteran of the Battle of Olustee near Lake City and the Battle of Lutterloh Ditch near Cedar Key, both won decisively by Confederate forces. e Levy County School District owns the property and exhumed the graves of Limbaugh, his rst and second wives and a 3-day old daughter and transferred them to Orange Hill Cemetery not far away. continued to page 5A Levy County represented by winners at the Suwannee River Fair with Chieand Sr. FFA heifer exhibitor Payton Parnell, Bronson Sr. FFA exhibitor Ty Barber and Williston FFA Sr. exhibitor Conner Edwards who are standing with their heifers during the show.

The draft provides a blueprint for the agency to plan, implement and monitor work needed to achieve the NRCs mission for the next four years The draft plan describes the agencys mission and its two strategic goals, which although slightly reworded for clarity and readability, remain fundamentally unchanged from the current plan. The NRCs mission is to license and re gulate the Nations civilian use of radioactive materials to protect the public health and safety, promote the common defense and security, and protect the environment The two strategic goals are : to ensure the safe use of radioactive materials and to ensure the secure use of radioactive materials. The draft plan includes a new vision statement that reflects how the agency operates using the principles of a good regulator. The NRCs new vision is: A trusted, independent, transparent, and effective nuclear regulator. The draft also includes new strategic objectives that describe, more specifically, the results needed to achieve the agencys strategic goals. Strategies to meet each of these objectives are described in the draft plan and reflect how the a gency will respond to meet new challenges affecting nuclear regulations such as processing license applications involving new technologies such as small modular reactors and continuing implementation of enhancements to improve reactor safety based on insi ght from the 2011 nuclear accident at Fukushima Dai ichi The NRC issued its first Strategic Plan in September 1997 and is now required to update it every four years. The final Strategic Plan will replace the agencys existing plan (FY 2008 2013). All in terested individuals may submit comments on the draft Strategic Plan within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice. The draft Strategic Plan is available on the NRCs website Public comments may be submitted in two ways: Online through the federal governments rulemaking website, www.regulations.gov using Docket ID NRC20130230; and by mail to Cindy Bladey, Chief, Rules, Announcements, and Directives Branch, Office of Administration, Mail Stop: 3WFN 0644M, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 205550001. Bronson Council Keeps Its Fire Department; Turns Down County Oer continued from page 1A Council members approved Russells request to purchase replacement shields for helmets and to repair helmets, and also to purchase two belt clips for radios. ey also agreed to purchase six pairs of re gloves. e Department of Public Safety oered to take over the department if Bronson would lease its re station and equipment to the county for a nominal fee and allow the county to impose a re tax in the town that would generate an estimated $88,179. e tax didnt sit well with the council. Its all pro-county, said Clerk Kelli Brettel. She said residences would have been charged $90 and commercial businesses 27 cents per square foot. She said Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles proposal wasnt pro-business. Council members have yet to decide if Russell will be given the chiefs job permanently. Councilman Berlon Weeks suggested making him the full-time chief. Hes been a chief when we needed a chief. Hes been a soldier when we needed a soldier, Weeks said. Russell said he had only one condition for remaining as interim chief. Im willing to step up and do what I have to do, as long as you support me, he said. Russell has been chief before. Bronson Fire Rescue slowly fell apart under former chief Je DiMaggio. He resigned earlier this year and refused to talk to the council about why he left. DiMaggios resignation followed his oering of several alternatives for improving the department, including merging with the Department of Public Safety or allowing the Department of Public Safety to take over the re department. e town, which has always operated its own re department, never embraced DiMaggios proposals. Russell said the volunteer reghters who make up the department are the key to its success. He said they have committed to giving him 100 percent. He believes the department can succeed. e town would always have the option of merging with the Department of Public Safety or allowing the department to take over Bronson Fire Rescue if Russell nds out he cant make it work. But Russell is an experienced chief and he believes he can make it work with council support and with the backing of his volunteers. Bronson Broadcaster Brettel got council support to publish the Bronson Broadcaster, a one page newsletter for the town, which will include what is happening with construction of the sewer system. e proposed project construction cost is $2,153,000 and the total project cost is $2,905,600. Council members have voted to advertise for bids. National League of Cities Council members voted to join the National League of Cities at a cost of $536. Mayor Franklin Schuler said the National League of Cities will give the town a voice in Washington, D.C. Councilman Berlon Weeks cast the only vote in opposition to joining the organization. Schuler attended a meeting in Washington of the League. e main topics of discussion were ood insurance, bonds and the need for a tax on Internet businesses. Interim Fire Chief Dennis Russell introduced his reghters to town council members. From the left are Cecelia Rainbille, Mark Marrazo, Scott Raulerson, Travis Raphael, Safety Ocer Jessie Baggett and John Stephenson. Chieand Commissioners Agree to Collect EMS Impact Fees for County continued from page 1A commissions to discuss other EMS and re issues including the citys request for an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck to stabilize critically ill or injured patients until a county ambulance arrives. Chieand Fire Rescue has requested an ALS non-transport truck for some time. Deputy Chief Gene Stockman told commissioners people are suering in the Chieand area because medically-trained reghters cant assist them as they wait for the ambulance to arrive. He said they could assist them if the city operated an ALS non-transport vehicle. Fire Chief James Harris presented a spread sheet showing city reghters had to wait a total of nearly 7 hours in February for county ambulance personnel or other county ALS responders to arrive at the scene of 104 dierent emergency calls. His point was that Chieand is often in a better position to respond to Chieand area emergencies and should be allowed to operate an ALS non-transport truck to stabilize patients. You can stabilize and have them ready by the time the ambulance gets there, Harris said. e county commission must approve licensing an ALS non-transport truck for the city because the county owns the state Certicate of Need for emergency medical services. e county would have to give the city permission to operate an ALS non-transport truck. e county commission last year declined to give the city an ALS nontransport truck, saying it was a timing issue. Commissioners suggested the city bring the matter back to them the rst of this year. City Commissioner Teresa Barron said thats why she raised the issue Monday night with Bell, County Coordinator Freddie Moody and Director of Public Safety David Knowles, all of whom attended the city commission meeting. City Manager Kevin Gay was instructed by city commissioners to work with Moody to set up the joint workshop meeting with the county commission, but he said rst he plans to set up a workshop between the city commission and Chieand residents to talk about emergency medical services. Barron and Mayor Teal Pomeroy voted against the motion to collect county EMS impact fees for the county. Pomeroy wanted to wait until September when the city will make its last payment on a piece of land the city purchased for ambulance services. He gured the cost of purchasing the land would oset any EMS impact fees the county hasnt been able to collect until now. Barron wanted to include county EMS impact fees as part of the discussion at the joint workshop with the county commission. Commissioner Betty Walker made the motion for a joint workshop with the county commission. She said the motion was in keeping with her promise last year to start out fresh with the county and open up better communications between the city and county. Gay has been attending city commission meetings and is in communication with Moody. Pomeroy said he was unaware until Mondays meeting that the issue of the city collecting county EMS impact fees was of such great importance to the county, but he still wasnt willing to vote in favor of collecting the fees until September when the mortgage payment ends. e city will be completely out of debt at that time. Pomeroy at one point tried to interest the city commission in repealing all impact fees the city currently collects. He said the Williston City Council recently rescinded all impact fees. He said Chieand wasnt collecting much money from the fees. He said the city thought it might get a big impact fee when the Tri-County Hospital was built, but the hospital never got o the ground. Commissioners expressed no interest in his proposal to repeal all impact fees.Creek was ever approved. Otter Creek is invoking the Florida Governmental Conict Resolution Act and declaring that a conict exists between Chieand and Otter Creek arising from Chieands breach of contract to provide water to Otter Creek and misrepresentations regarding the same. Otter Creek is justied in pursuing the provisions of the Act and initiating the conict resolution process because it has incurred damages from Chieands breach and misrepresentations, said Town Clerk Connie Caldwell in a Feb. 28 letter to Pomeroy and Gay. A resolution adopted by the Otter Creek Town Council said the Florida Governmental Conict Resolution Act allows the town to begin conict resolution proceedings before starting any court proceedings to resolve the conict. e resolution cites Chieands refusal to provide Otter Creek with water as allegedly agreed to in a document called the Basis for Interlocal Bulk Service Agreement. e resolution was passed by the Town Council on Feb. 24.Otter Creek Claims Damage by Chieands Refusal to Supply Water continued from page 1A
4A The Left Versus Minorities Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateIf anyone wanted to pick a time and place where the political lefts avowed concern for minorities was denitively exposed as a fraud, it would be now -and the place would be New York City, where far left Mayor Bill de Blasio has launched an attack on charter schools, cutting their funding, among other things. ese schools have given thousands of low income minority children their only shot at a decent education, which often means their only shot at a decent life. Last year 82 percent of the students at a charter school called Success Academy passed city-wide mathematics exams, compared to 30 percent of the students in the city as a whole. Why would anybody who has any concern at all about minority young people -or even common decency -want to destroy what progress has already been made? One big reason, of course, is the teachers union, one of Mayor de Blasios biggest supporters. But it may be more than that. For many of the true believers on the left, their ideology overrides any concern about the actual fate of esh-and-blood human beings. Something similar happened on the west coast last year. e American Indian Model Schools in Oakland have been ranked among the top schools in the nation, based on their students test scores. is is, again, a special achievement for minority students who need all the help they can get. But, last spring, the California State Board of Education announced plans to shut this school down! Why? e excuse given was that there had been suspicious nancial dealings by the former -repeat, former -head of the institution. If this was the real reason, then all they had to do was indict the former head and let a court decide if he was guilty or innocent. ere was no reason to make anyone else suer, much less the students. But the education establishments decision was to refuse to let the school open last fall. Fortunately a court stopped this hasty shut-down. ese are not just isolated local incidents. e Obama administration has cut spending for charter schools in the District of Columbia and its Justice Department has intervened to try to stop the state of Louisiana from expanding its charter schools. Why such hostility to schools that have succeeded in educating minority students, where so many others have failed? Some of the opposition to charter schools has been sheer crass politics. e teachers unions see charter schools as a threat to their members jobs, and politicians respond to the money and the votes that teachers unions can provide. e net result is that public schools are often run as if their main function is to provide jobs to teachers. Whether the children get a decent education is secondary, at best. In various parts of the country, educators who have succeeded in raising the educational level of minority children to the national average -or above -have faced hostility, harassment or have even been driven out of their schools. Not all charter schools are successful, of course, but the ones that are completely undermine the excuses for failure in the public school system as a whole. at is why teachers unions hate them, as a threat not only to their members jobs but a threat to the whole range of frauds and fetishes in the educational system. e autonomy of charter schools is also a threat to the powers that be, who want to impose their own vision on the schools, regardless of what the parents want. Attorney General Eric Holder wants to impose his own notion of racial balance in the schools, while many black parents want their children to learn, regardless of whether they are seated next to a white child or a black child. ere have been all-black schools whose students met or exceeded national norms in education, whether in Louisiana, California or other places around the country. But Eric Holder, like Bill de Blasio, put his ideology above the education -and the future life -of minority students. Charter schools take power from politicians and bureaucrats, letting parents decide where their children will go to school. at is obviously oensive to those on the left, who think that our betters should be making our decisions for us.omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate At the end of 2013, Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz had some nasty words for yours truly. Irked that I used my Twitter feed to criticize her Obamacare propaganda eorts, Wasserman Schultz snarked back at me: anks for spreading the word! Youll be eating them next year. #GetCovered. Classy as always. And completely wrong-headed as usual. Less than three months into 2014, hows dutiful Debbie and her Dear Leaders pet government takeover program doing? e most recent retreat measures -call it the Obamacare Endangered 2014 Midterm Democrats Rescue Plan -include: --Allowing insurers for two extra years to continue selling plans that otherwise would have been banned by Obamacare. Last fall, Americans across the country and from all parts of the political spectrum raised an uproar in the wake of millions of Obamacare-induced cancellation notices on their individual market health plans. President Obama trotted out a keep your plan Band-Aid eective through this year. Now, the transitional period will extend through October 2016 and cover policyholders until the following September, after Obama is safely out of oce. --Extending the open enrollment period for 2015 from November 2014 to February 2015, a month longer than originally scheduled. (It will no doubt be extended again as the midterm elections get closer.) --Relaxing eligibility requirements for insurers to qualify for nancial help under a three-year program intended to cushion insurers costs of complying with Obamacare mandates. --Exempting labor unions, universities and other self-insured employers from paying a fee that creates the above-noted fund. In addition, the White House last month allowed medium-sized employers an extra year to comply with the Obamacare mandate to oer insurance to all fulltime workers and reduced the percentage of workers that large companies are required to cover. ese latest regulatory walk-backs by administrative at all come on the heels of dozens of administrative delays and rollbacks. While Democrats complain about Republican Obamacare repeal eorts, we may be nearing a special inection point at which the White House will have reneged on more Obamacare regulations than its actually enforcing! Remember: In November 2010, the White House began issuing thousands of waivers to unions, cronies, businesses and organizations that oered aordable health insurance or prescription drug coverage with limited benets outlawed by Obamacare. e federalized health care architects had sought to eliminate those low-cost plans under the guise of controlling insurer spending on executive salaries and marketing. Despite the waivers, the mandate has led to untold disruptions in the marketplace and has prompted businesses to cancel the benecial plans altogether and/or slash wages and work hours. In April 2011, Obama signed a bipartisan-backed law repealing his own onerous $22 billion Obamacare 1099 tax-compliance mandate that would have destroyed small businesses inundated with pointless paperwork. Last March, with the support of several key Democrats, the Senate voted to repeal the Obamacare medical device tax. But the vote has not been enforced. Device makers have cut back on research and development. And according to the medical device manufacturers industry group AdvaMed, the punitive tax has forced companies to lay o or avoid hiring at least 33,000 workers over the past year. In December and January, when Wasserman Schultz was busy acting like a 2-year-old in response to Obamacare critics, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was busy: --Delaying premium payment deadlines. --Delaying high-risk insurance pool cancellations. --Delaying equal coverage mandates that force companies to drop health benets rewards for top executives. --Delaying onerous meaningful use mandates on health providers grappling with Obamacares disastrous top-down electronic medical records rules. While Wasserman Schultz deantly claims all Democrats will proudly run on health care in 2014 and 2016, endangered Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina was caught on camera just last week literally running away from a journalist who dared to ask her about the 24 times she falsely promised that if you liked your plan, you could keep it under Obama. Its not just Hagan; every vulnerable Senate Democrat who rammed Obamacare down Americas throat is now running for the hills. When the White House now talks about the Get Covered campaign, its not about ordinary Americans getting health care. Its about covering the backsides of the Obama water-carriers who may very well lose their jobs. eyre not just eating their words. eyre choking on Obamacares massive, inevitable, job-killing, life-threatening failures. Id like to tell bratty Wasserman Schultz that Obamacare critics will have the last laugh. But were too busy weeping at the senseless government-induced wreckage around us.Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies (Regnery 2010).

It was then, and is now, the countys newspaper of record. Times were dicult back in the early days for Cobb. When Cobb was a young man his sister married the publisher of the Journal, Roy Child, and the Childs took him in. When Child died, Cobb ran the paper, eventually buying it from his sister in the 1960s. Cobb was always close to J. Min Ayers, the man who would in later years become publisher of the Gilchrist County Journal. Ayers son John and wife Cindy Jo bought the Levy County Journal from Cobb when he retired. e Ayers owned the Journal for nine years before selling the newspaper to Andy Andrews, the current publisher. J. Min Ayers got his start in newspapers working at the Journal sweeping oors for Child. He would set lead letters and tear them apart for the next issue. at was in the old days of Lineotype machines. e process involved setting hot lead type in rows of letters. Two of the old machines can still be seen at the Journal oce on Court Street, the longtime original home of the Journal. Cobb, J. Min Ayers and Child were all very close and worked together at the Journal for years. Like Ayers, Cobb started in the newspaper business by sweeping oors at the Journal and helping build the paper by setting hot lead for the letters. e Journal always published the legal notices from the county because it had operated in Bronson for a very long time and was located next door to the Levy County Courthouse. When Ayers and Cobb were young, there were no welfare agencies and communities helped those who needed assistance in various ways. In the case of J. Min Ayers his father died when he was young and he had to help support his mother and siblings. He had been raised in Bronson. Child, the Journal publisher, oered him a job sweeping oors. He gradually worked his way into the publishing end of the Journal. Back in those days, you were respected if you were willing to work. Ayers received help from a lot of people in Bronson, but he worked for every penny. He washed dishes and made beds at the Boyd Motel. When farmers were nished with their peanuts, they would give him the peanuts that were left and Ayers would sell them for extra money. He was doing this while holding down a job at the Levy County Journal. ere were a lot of children in Ayers family. His mom did washing and Ayers did a lot of other side jobs while working for the Levy County Journal. When he learned that a man in Gilchrist County who owned the newspaper there had died, he bought the Gilchrist County Journal from his widow. e young publisher continued to live in Bronson and caught rides to Trenton to publish the Gilchrist County Journal. He didnt own a car at the time, but found ways to hitch rides to Trenton. Ayers continued to be close to his old friend, Elton Cobb, publisher of the Levy County Journal for the rest of his life. Both men had come up the hard way during the depression years and they shared a common history of having learned the newspaper business at the Levy County Journal from Publisher Roy Child.
6A By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere Suwannee River Fair nished its second big weekend Saturday with the horse show and the growing heifer show, but there is more to come. e fair started on March 1 with a dog obedience show and a barbeque competition. Some would argue that the swine show on Monday, March 17, the feeder steer and market steer shows on Tuesday, March 18, followed by the sale of the animals on Wednesday, March 19 are the biggest events. And they are the biggest events. When the hundreds of livestock animals are sold, the fair barn will be standing room only with buyers crowding the stand, and young people excitedly waiting to see how they fared in the sale. e fair is more than 60 years old. e dog obedience competition is brand new. We did it because not all the kids can aord a big animal, but most people have dogs at the house, said Loran Brookins, President of this years Suwannee River Fair Association. It was pretty neat. I liked it. Well have three times that many next year. e dog that won the competition was an old dog. Also relatively new at the fair is the show barn. e $1 million facility comes with air conditioning, heating, insulation, handicapped accessible bathrooms and good acoustics. e heated show arena came in handy Friday night for the rabbit and poultry show when temperatures outside dropped well below 50 degrees in Fanning Springs. Can you imagine how cold it would have been last night without the heat, Brookins said. Of course, the Mr. Loran Barbeque competition was also a success. It was named for Brookins. He believes it will grow. e $1 million fair building donated by the Anderson family is something no one would have dreamed possible a few years ago. A banner above the show arena thanks Joe Jr. and Cindy Anderson, Joey and Sonya Anderson, Doug and Lisa Anderson, Timbo and Cindy Childers, Rolfe and Harriet Wall for the donation. e family called Brookins last year and asked if the fair would be interested in a new show barn. Brookins and Doug Anderson traveled to Perry, Georgia to look at barns that might t the fair associations needs. Brookins and Anderson returned with an idea of what they wanted. e blueprints were ordered. e show barn was nished a few days before the start of the 2013 Suwannee River Fair. We got the best show place in the state, Brookins said. We are so lucky to have people in our community who can and will give.Suwannee River Fair Shows O New Twists, Age-Old Favorites Home Grown Grand Champion Mason Mills of Williston Sr. FFA is pictured with Judge Dean Hendrick.

8A 352-493-1006Ask About Our GWC Pro Care Total Technology Solutions!www.gatorworks.com 4 WEST PARK AVENUE, CHIEFLAND, FL 32626 ere are many of us who still use computers with the Windows XP operating system. But Microsoft will stop providing security updates for XP after April 8th. What does that mean to me? Well, really, your XP computer will still continue to function; its not going to die or stop working; your programs will still continue to work and you will still be able to save your data, just like always. e biggest change is that you will simply become much more vulnerable to getting hacked or infected with viruses and spyware when you go on the internet. For business owners using Win XP, the issue is a little more complicated. IF you are using programs that will only run on Win XP, you might not have the option to upgrade. However, computer users today are able to run programs in a virtual Win XP mode on a computer that has a Windows 7 Pro operating system, which is very secure. As a home user, if you must continue to use your XP machine, here are a few changes that should reduce the threat of infection, etc. If you can, stay OFF the Internet with your XP machine. In todays world, there are so many other options. Smart phones, i-Pads, i-Phones, Kindle Fire, Google Chromebooks, netbooks or even a laptop running Ubuntu Linux can be used to check your email and surf the web relatively free of malware/viruses, etc. So it might not be necessary to use your computer on the internet. However, if you must, switch from using Internet Explorer to a dierent default browser, like Google Chrome or Fire Fox (You will, however, need to continue to keep Internet Explorer installed and updated). If you choose Firefox, they also oer a free add-on called No Script Security Suite that will block malicious scripts and is worth downloading (https://addons.mozilla.org/enUS/refox/addon/noscript/). Another reason to switch: Google Apps doesnt support IE 8, but the online service will run in XP-compatible Chrome and Firefox. You already know how important it is to keep your Antivirus updated. Well, now its really important! And we recommend increasing your protection by using a combination of your antivirus plus a program that works well with AVs called Malwarebytes. is program scans for spyware and other threats that your antivirus might not pick up (http://www.malwarebytes.org/). Note: You never want two full time antivirus programs on your computer at the same time, as this will cause a conict that may cancel the eectiveness of each other out, leaving you defenseless! If you decide to keep your Win XP machine totally o the internet, but youre not the only user, you can disable Internet Explorer (for assistance contact your local computer repair shop, or give us a call). Lastly, remember to BACK UP YOUR DATA! at way, if you do get infected, you can easily reinstall your Win XP Operating System and replace your data, which will eectively put back everything you had before your got infected. Like driving an old car that you love, there will come a time when you will have to bite the bullet and buy newer. But these recommendations will give you a little extra time to plan for a smooth and hopefully much less painful switch. Can I Still Use My Windows XP Computer?

Confederate Soldier Pens Battle of Olustee History in Letters Written from Camp 150 Years Ago By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterFrancis Marion Hail was the father of ve, a leader in his Baptist Church in Georgia and was probably 36-38 years old when he enlisted in the Confederate Army to ght the invading Union forces in his homeland. Hail wrote two letters to his beloved wife, Mrs. Laura Annie Hail in February of 1964 before he was killed in battle at Cedar Creek near Jacksonville the following month, according to Mike Webb of Newnan, Georgia, Hails greatgreat grandson. Hail was a wheelwright. In his will he mentioned blacksmith tools. He volunteered to serve in Decatur, Ga. He is buried at Camp Mooney Cemetery in Jacksonville not far from Interstate-10, but his grave is unmarked. e family is fairly certain he is buried there. Hail was the clerk of Sardis Baptist Church in Henry County, Ga., where his wife is buried. He and his father operated a store in Henry County. Hail was a member of the Masonic Lodge which met in a room above the store. I think he would have been someone who would have tried to be civil to anyone he met, Webb said. He was just a hard working family man who answered the call of the state. Webb provided a photo of Hail wearing some type of sash draped around his shoulders and midsection. Webb said the sash had something to do with the Masonic order. e apron he was wearing also had something to do with masonry. Like many soldiers in the Confederacy, Hail was motivated to drive invading Union troops away from farms and families. e South was the homeland. e Georgia Department of Archives transcribed both letters. In his rst letter, Hail talks about family matters and concludes with a note that he is 200 miles from Savannah. e top of the letter said Camp, 27th Ga. Regt. Lake Citty Flordia, Feb. 18th, 1864. He wrote the letter to his wife. In the last half of the rst letter he talks about where they are camped south of Lake City, Florida in the piney woods. e Battle of Olustee occurred in a stand of mature pine timber. He asks for his father to contact him once more. Within month, he would be killed in battle. Below are his exact words. We left Savanah Tuesday morning, we have had 2 days hard marching from one Rail Rode to the other. We are something over 200 miles from Savanah. Our camp is 12 miles below Lake Citty on the Rail Rode. We are in the pinie woods. We are the Blackest set of men you ever saw. We are smoked over with pine soote. I am well as ___ only my fute is blistered so that I cant hardly walk and my knee came nearly to giving out. Write soon, I dont know how long we will stay hear. ey keep us moving from plase to plase. Henry is well and doing very well. I saw Uncle Allen, John and Walter this morning, they are well. Give my love to all correct kin and friends espesly to Whiteld and Jane. Write soon for I want to hear from you often. Fair well for this time. Direct your letter to Lake Citty, Floridia. Nothing fore at present but remain your loving husband till death. Tell pa I should like to hear from him once more. F.M. Hail e second letter didnt have an exact date, saying only Feb. 2?, 1864. It was written on half of a ledger sheet numbered page 451 on the front and 452 on the back and described the Battle of Olustee near Lake City. Hail said he was camped 12 miles east of Lake City. It is the site of Olustee. Dear Wife ank the Master of kind providence I am permitted to write you a few lines to inform you of my health which is (common?), Hail began. He said they had a little ght the day before that opened around 2 p.m. and lasted until dark, describing Olustee. ere was 3 regiments of negroes ingaged they stood very well but had to back they shot very wild we whipped the ght for it was a complete victory, he wrote in the letter. He said they took a good many prisoners. He said his military unit had a good many wounded, but not many killed. He said the regiment lost 100 killed and wounded. He noted that Henry is well. John Hale is wounded. Bill and uncle Allin is well. John Hales wound is a esh wound in the (lage). Hail said he was sending things home in a trunk with Frank Gergeson. He gave instructions on what was to be done with his belongings. He said the Union soldiers were carrying seven days of rations with them. e Union troops carried knap sacks, haversacks, guns, blankets, oil cloths and more. He said the Union troops would have gone on their way if not for the ght at Olustee. Direct your letters to Lake City Florida Send Pa word that we or well give my love to all relations and frends and (?save) a due portrin for your selves fair well till next time From your loving husband F M Hail. To L A Hail and family. A note at the bottom of the letter said F.M. Hail was killed in battle shortly after this was written. Francis Marion Hale fought in the Civil War for the Confederacy. He sent two letters home shortly before being killed in battle in 1864.Williston Re-Enactmentcontinued from page 1A e graves were relocated because public schools are considered secure facilities and the newer facilities are fenced on all sides. e family would have had extremely limited access. Closest next of kin approved the relocation of the graves, but other family members disapproved of the move. e district will build a memorial and garden honoring the cemetery and fence it. Daryl Kirby said the rst annual Civil War reenactment on the farm he and his wife Tracy own was a huge success and drew compliments from the crowd. e only hitch occurred on Sunday when the train they operate as a tourist attraction on the farm blew a hydraulic hose during Sundays battle when Union troops were poised to attack a train of Confederate reinforcements. e plan had to be abandoned. e Union troops went back to the battle. e Confederates marched along the railroad tracks and back into the battle from a dierent direction carrying the Confederate battle ag. ere were no delays in the battle. All those involved rejoined the ght on their respective sides. e train dates back to the late 1800s and was originally powered by steam from burning wood. In the early 1900s it was converted to diesel. Standing in a line, Confederate re-enactors load their muskets and re as Union re-enactors march toward them. (Note the guns are pointed slightly upward as a safety measure.) Confederate Cavalry withdraw as they re their guns following a charge on horseback. The 19th century locomotive is a tourist attraction at Kirby Farms, but it was temporarily disabled by a blown hydraulic hose during the Civil War reenactment. It was back in service in less than an hour. continued to page 3B

Union troops gather to tend to the wounded and the dead as a comrade ies the American ag. Confederate re-enactors march forward in a haze of gun smoke as spectators watch the action unfold before them just a few feet away. e announcer for the event, Rick Mook of St. Petersburg, a member of the 97th Regimental String Band, added comments about the history of the war as he gave a play by play about what was occurring on the battleeld, often adding a touch of humor and reminding people the ghting looked and sounded real, but it was a mock battle. He also reminded people of why no soldiers appeared to be dying in the rst part of the battle, even though both sides were ring in the general direction of each other. For their safety, guns were pointed upward rather than at the belt buckle of the enemy, as was in the case in real Civil War battles. He said many of the re-enactors drove great distances and spent a great deal of money playing the role of Confederate and Union soldiers and they didnt want to die early in the battle. is is a hobby, he said. He also noted that the at and open eld at Kirby Farms wasnt a good spot for the Florida re-enactors to play dead in the hot sun. is is a tough eld for a Florida re-enactor. ey usually try to fall in the shade, he said. On the serious side, Mook said Florida cowmen provided much of the beef for the Confederate soldiers, often driving cattle herds northward along trails until they reached Confederate strongholds. He said women fought on both sides of the battle front. Ocially, both armies prohibited women from ghting, but that didnt stop the ladies. He said they often cut their hair short to look like men, even though they were not. e medical physicals didnt require them to disrobe. As long as they fought bravely alongside male counterparts, they werent sent back home. Mook told his listeners that even though this was a demonstration battle and safety precautions were taken to protect all the re-enactors and the crowd, he said it was intended to give observers a real sense of what the battleeld looked like during the Civil War, including the smoke drifting over soldiers. is is the way it looked folks. is is the way it sounded. is is the way it smelled, Mook said. Youve heard of the fog of war. Sometimes you cant see who youre shooting at through all the smoke. Tracy Kirby said Kirby Farms has been asked to do a World War II reenactment. She said no nal decision has been made, but she and her husband are considering it. Kirby Farms is directly across County Road 316 from Williston Elementary School. e next big event is the Easter Egg Hunt at 10 a.m. on April 12.

Perhaps they needed to pray about it rst? I was obviously the only one who realized the urgency of the matter, so I raised my hand. What can I say? I was new to Christianity, and eager to please. I hadnt even experienced my rst burn out yet, so I was completely ignorant of the subtle tactics of evasion, or the value of the phrase, I dont feel led. Practice CDs were handed out after the meeting, and I motored straight out to my truck to begin practicing for my new assignment, singing the lead on the song Go tell it on the Mountain during the grand nale at our upcoming Christmas production. For the next six weeks leading up to the show, everywhere I went, my old clunker was rocking. I had dogs lining up all along my route to work each day waiting for their cue to howl. By the fth week Id even memorized the words. Everything was progressing nicely. e people in the choir were so nice too. eyd always smile so big after we practiced my song, almost like I was helping bring laughter back to their lives. Inevitably a couple of them would come up afterwards to slap me on the back and encourage me to keep practicing. However, there was one little note I was having problems with. Right at the end of the song I was supposed to belch out this blazing high note that would really bring down the house. e problem was that note was way out of my area code. I just couldnt seem to hitch my pants up high enough to hit it, and believe me I tried. Unfortunately, my best eorts had failed to surpass the tonal quality of a wounded sea gull making his last dying wail. Finally the choir director sat me down. Just leave out that note, she urged, When you get to that part, go low. It was sound advice. (No pun intended.) I tried it. It wasnt bad. Problem solvedI guess. I mean if youre really in to working folks up to a beautiful crescendo only to nishing strong with a sad little low note. But anywayWhen the night of the show came I got all gussied up in my fancy duds, usually reserved for funerals and such, and headed out. e Church was a-buzz with excitement. e house lights came down and we took the platform in all the full pageantry of our immense $300 production. Ill admit, our choir was a little shaky at rst, but as the night progressed we relaxed and really fell into a wonderful groove. Soon we were singing with great condence, especially after wed thinned out the crowd so. When the time nally came for my song, I was really feeling strong. I couldnt believe what was bellowing from my own lips. I almost questioned whether theyd really hidden Jim Neighbors behind the curtain and given me a dummy mic. I sounded good! In fact, as I got closer to that big crescendo, I even began to have second thoughts about my decision to go low. Obviously the anointing was carrying me. Why wimp out on the best part? Surely by this point of the story, some of you more seasoned Christians are rooting for me and hoping I hadnt been too over-zealous and put too much stock in those Scriptures they teach new believers like(Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us ,) I mean, theres no way God would intervene in a $300 production to help me hit a note thats not in my repertoire just because of a little faith, right? Let me tell you. I not only nailed that high note, I rattled the stain glass windows! I even wiggled the note around some like Mariah Carey on helium. Dont tell me my God cant watch over His Word to perform it. I might just be preaching to the choir, but maybe its time some of us stopped ducking every opportunity to volunteer and started trusting God to help us hit the high notes in our lives again. Its time to Go tell it on the Mountain! You know, like we did back when we didnt know any better. -Guy Sheeld Church CalendarFish Dinner at Holy Family Catholic Church Mar. 14Fish Dinner on Fri., Mar. 14 at Holy Family Catholic Church Parish Hall.

Robert ompson, owner of ompsons Garage, said he was ordered to leave the parking lot of the school despite repeatedly telling a young city police ocer he was waiting for his son to come out of the gym. I said, Im waiting for my son and he said, I dont care. Clear the parking lot, said ompson. Ocer J. Bolton said he understood ompsons complaint, but he said Chieand police ocers were attempting to handle an unruly crowd that developed when some Crescent City fans were barred from entering the gymnasium for the game. Bolton said orders from school ocials were to clear the parking lot. ey were doing nothing more than what they were told to do; clearing the area, Bolton said. City Commissioner Rollin Hudson apologized to ompson for what happened. Hudson said he talked to Chief Robert Douglas, who wasnt present for Mondays meeting and Douglas told him they were having problems at some of the Chieand High School basketball games, particularly when Cross City came to town. e commissioner said he knows the Crescent City-Chieand High School game was packed and people were being turned away. He said the Levy County school system had security inside the gymnasium and there were police outside. At the same time, Hudson said he knows ompson personally. Im sorry personally. Im sorry it happened. Ive known him forever, Hudson said. Commissioners agreed to a suggestion by Commissioner Betty Walker for police to meet in a workshop with the community. Walker said the police department has good ocers, but they need to know how to approach people in the community. Commissioner Chris Jones said some of the younger ocers come across in a poor way. He said the police department needs to have these younger ocers meet the people. No date was set for a workshop. ompson said he wasnt trying to cause problems for the ocer who confronted him and ordered him to leave the parking lot without his young son, but he said something needs to be done so that ocers respect the people. e way he was talking to me was wrong. I tried to make him understand the uniform doesnt make the man; the man makes the uniform, ompson said. ompson said he has always taught his son to respect the law and respect police, but the feeling should be mutual. He said he talked to Douglas about the incident but the chief did nothing about it.

Come on in....lets get cooking!www.facebook.com/pennysrecipes Federal land agencies across the country are celebrating W50, the ftieth anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Its a gift we gave ourselves, as a nation. After starting o our country with the ethnocentric idea of manifest destiny, the Wilderness Act was more of a sacred act for their descendants. e Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges celebrated 6 months out from the actual ftieth anniversary date with a Paddle to the Big W(ilderness). Sixteen dare-devils paddled out to North Key on a very windy day with rough seas that would have turned most away for a warm dry place. With Mandy Davis of Hiddencoast Outtters, as the sweep, the Refuge Ranger headed out across the gnarly open water gritting her teeth. It was not the weather she had pictured when planning the event. I gured if I could keep going across those rollers, it would keep everyone moving forward. ey knew from the get-go it was a paddle for advanced seakayakers and they were psyched for it. e group of enthusiasts had travelled from Archer, Ocala, Chieand, Cedar Key, and Atlanta; they were lured with a promise of going into the designated Wilderness Area of North Key, closed to humans 24/7/365 forever, except this moment So, they all paddled their hearts out to live in the moment Waves splashed across the bow and into the kayaks, winds constantly pushed the kayaks to the northeast while everyone struggled to paddle to the west. Finally, they reached the island and its quiet bayou. e beach was covered with neatly placed quahog clams, like pavers. Everyone grabbed a snack and water, awaiting the moment they had anticipated. e Ranger gathered all the paddlers together and to the interior they went. Clean air, clean water, solitude, and the sacred were all spoken of during the time on the interior, and then they paddled back. Didnt know if I was up to the challenge and boy, was it a challenge! So proud of myself for doing it!, exclaimed Sallie Gentry, from the US Fish and Wildlife Service Regional Oce. Its said by some paddlers there are 3 kinds of fun. is paddle was the second kind: It may involve rattled nerves and frustration while its happening, but it builds character and makes us better paddlers and better people.
