When September rolls around the Chieand City Commission will make the last of its payments on the only remaining big loan. In 2007 the City Commission made a decision to consolidate loans for a well eld property, a property for emergency services and a sewer plant expansion. e loan was for $879,197 at an interest rate of 5.15 percent for 7 years. e city agreed to make 84 monthly payments of $12,500. e loan will be paid o in September. After that, the only remaining loans are for a couple of used vehicles. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he would like to see the city continue its conservative approach to managing the budget. But tight budget management came at a cost. e city has eliminated ve or six employee positions as part of its budget-saving moves over the past ve years. Employees havent received a pay raise in ve years. Chieand hasnt purchased a new car in County Forces Bronson to Postpone Decision on Williston Fire AgreementBy Terry WittStaff WriterBronson Town Council members reluctantly postponed a decision Monday on whether to hire Williston reghters on an as needed basis after receiving a letter from the Levy County Department of Public Safety saying the county coordinator must approve the agreement rst. Public Safety Director David Knowles advised council members in the April 4 letter that a 2007 Fire Protection Agreement signed by the town and the county commission says if any of the towns reghting obligations are transferred to a subcontractor it must rst be approved by County Coordinator Freddie Moody or his designee. Knowles said Levy County could provide the same services oered by Williston if it was given adequate notication. Since the interlocal agreement between the Town of Bronson and the City of Williston proposes that Williston perform some of Bronsons obligations, we will need to discuss this arrangement with the County Coordinator prior to Bronson being able to use Willistons services. Please contact me so that we can arrange to discuss this issue further, Knowles wrote in the April 4 letter. e letter didnt sit well with two council members. Councilman Berlon Weeks said Municipal Home Rule in Florida means counties cant tell cities what to do. He said the clause in the re protection agreement giving the county commission authority to tell Bronson whether it can use Williston reghters as backup will have to be xed. But he acknowledged the county has the upper hand at this point. It seems we wont make a decision until the county tells us what By Terry WittStaff WriterTown ocials in Bronson opened bids Tuesday for a project that will connect many businesses and the courthouse to municipal sewer for the rst time. e apparent low bidder was Commercial Industrial Corp. of Reddick in Marion County with a base bid of $2,370,183.77, more than 900,000 below the high bidder. Jason R. Shepler, senior project manager for Mittaurer and Associates, the towns engineering rm, said he was aware of the big price spread among bidders, but he said he has worked with Commercial Industrial Corp. on other projects. Shepler told bidders gathered in the town councils chambers that town ocials would be reviewing the bids over the next several weeks, but the apparent low bidder is Commercial Industrial Corp. e project is being funded by a grant and loan from Rural Development, an agency within the U.S. Department of Agriculture. e grant is for $1,269,600 and the loan $1,596,000.

By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBass shing tournaments are as much a part of Floridas cultural landscape as live oak trees and cabbage palms, but the tournaments are becoming a nuisance in one Inglis area lakeside community. Levy County Commissioners were asked Tuesday by resident Richard Hill if they could at least post no parking signs along residential streets in Peaceful Acres that are often clogged by bass shing vehicles and trailers. Commissioners said they would take a look at the problem but made no promises. Hill said boat ramp in Peaceful Acres became a favorite site for bass tournaments when Dunnellon and Citrus County began charging for the use of their boat ramps. He said bass shermen are parking in front of mailboxes and using the bathroom outdoors because there are no restrooms at the rural boat ramp on Lake Rousseau. Recently he said a bass sherman left toilet paper on the ground after relieving himself outdoors. Its out of control, he said. Hill approached commissioners with the problem because the boat ramp is owned by the county. It is a county easement. He said the boat ramp has about 10 to 15 parking spaces, hardly enough to accommodate a large bass shing tournament on Lake Rousseau, a clear water lake fed by the Withlacoochee and Rainbow rivers. Some call it the Bass Tournaments Cause Friction with Neighbors at Inglis Area Boat Ramp By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterFour members of the Williston City Council were sworn into oce Tuesday by County Judge Tim Browning. Council President Jason Cason, Vice President Charles Goodman, Mayor Gerald Hethcoat and the most recent addition to the council, Matt Brooks, took the oath of oce. None had opposition in the municipal election. e council reappointed Cason as president and Goodman as vice president. Council members voted unanimously to permanently repeal the citys impact fee ordinance that charged new development for the cost of capacity used at the citys wastewater and water treatment plants. e council made a decision several years ago during the peak of the recession to place a moratorium on impact fees in an eort to stimulate economic development. e moratorium expired on March 20. e impact fees had produced relatively little income. Council members decided to scrap them entirely and refund the money collected. In other business, council members approved a supplemental agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation for the design and rehabilitation of Taxiway F at the Williston Airport. e total cost of the project is $2,580,000. e Bronson Town Council members gave approval Monday to the start of a Bronson Farmers Market to be held on the rst Saturday of every month at the Gazebo. e council approved closing Main Street between Oak Avenue and North Court Street during the hours of 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the Bronson Farmers Market. Councilman Bruce Greenlee, who heads the new industrial committee, said the Bronson Farmers Market was the rst invention of the committee. Committee members hope it will bring people into Bronson, a rst start toward improving the local economy.Bronson Farmers Market Gets OK from Council Judge Tim Browning Swears in Four Williston City Council Members continued to page 2A Reddick Firm Apparent Low Bidder on Bronson Sewer ProjectChieand headed for Debt-Free Status in Near Future continued to page 3A continued to page 8A County Judge Tim Browning swears in Councilmen Charles Goodman, Jason Cason, Mayor Gerald Hethcoat and Matt Brooks.

Hazen was a passenger in an S-10 Blazer that was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Sean Michael Cornine, 19, of Old Town. FHP said Cornine was traveling behind a car driven by Frances Debra Hazen McDonald, 54, of Plant City. Both vehicles were driving south on SR 349 when McDonald began turning left onto NE 878th Ave. Cornine failed to slow his Yukon XL and struck McDonalds vehicle from behind. Both vehicles traveled in a southeasterly direction coming to a nal rest on SR 349s northbound shoulder. McDonald suered minor injuries. Her other passenger, Sara Jo Hazen, 74, suered serious injuries. Cornine, McDonald and Sara Jo Hazen were wearing seatbelts, according to FHP. Lawrence Hazen was not wearing a seatbelt.

As soon as they gure out a solution, they will announce what they plan to do. Hill suggested there are waterfront lots on Lake Rousseau the county could purchase, but he said the main thing is to post no parking signs. But Stevens said erecting no parking signs might interfere with the ability of Peaceful Acres residents to hold family gatherings. Hill said the nal straw was when he realized he wasnt getting his mail when the tournaments took place. He said bass shermen would park directly in front of his mailbox and the mail delivery people wouldnt go around the obstruction to give him the mail.Bass Tournaments Cause Friction with Neighbors at Inglis Area Boat Ramp continued from page 1A rfrnf tttbfnf btrf rfntb nb fff nb rr rr b b b b rr

Tony Krysinsky's engraved wood painting entitled, "Honeymoon Cottage 1959," was chosen as the 2014 Design Contest Winner for the 2014 Old Florida Celebration of the Arts. e Honeymoon Cottage was originally known as the omas Guest House. Built in 1958 as a get-away for the omas Family of Gainesville, Time and mother nature have taken their toll on this iconic structure which sits in the Gulf just o 1st Street in Cedar Key. e Cedar Key Art Festival is free with booths for the 120 artists lining the quaint historic main street. At the beachfront city park, only local non-prot vendors are allowed to sell food. As a result, little old church ladies, high school kids and the towns leaders are all there selling foods you wont nd anywhere else. e seafood is especially worth trying, because Cedar Key is the east coasts biggest producer of clams. As a result, youll nd fresh Cedar Key clams for sale by the clam association and oysters by the oyster association. On D Street in the historic downtown you will be able to sample the best clam chowder in the world, veriably. For the last three years, the clam chowder served at Tonys Seafood Restaurant at Second and D street has won rst place in the Great Chowder Cooko in New Port, Rhode Island the World Cup of chowder. Tonys oers samples to all comers at the art festival, and there is always a line. elma McCain will be there selling her homemade crab cakes for the same $2 each as in the past to benet the Lioness club. at is 30 years of selling the best crab cakes you will ever eat. e Cedar Key Garden Club will sell fresh-squeezed lemonade. e Cedar Key Future Farmers of America will sell fresh-fried grouper. You can even rent a kayak from Kayak Cedar Keys outtter Tom Tomyakker Leibert right from the beach. And, of course, the Art. Original, colorful, varied, scenic art. Come and take the walk of your life in Cedar Key and you will not regret it.Old Florida Celebration of the Arts Showing O April 12 and 13 in Cedar Key Honeymoon Cottage 1959 by Tony Krysinsky decision to make from what Im reading in this letter right here, Weeks said. Councilman Aaron Edmondson said the town doesnt want to be pushed or held hostage by the county. He said the town wants to work with Chieand and Williston on reghting issues and he said the town doesnt want its re department to go to the county. To me this is just a tactic, Edmondson said. Clerk Kelli Brettel said the town was unaware it needed county approval before it could contract with Williston to hire reghters when they were needed. Town Attorney Steven Warm said the letter from Knowles seems to be saying, dont do anything until we look at it and put a rubber stamp on this, and I would get the impression they would feel we had deed them if we did something armative. County Commissioner John Meeks was seated at the back of the council chambers listening to the discussion. He wasnt on the agenda. Weeks asked him if there would be a problem if the council approved the agreement to hire Williston reghters on an as needed basis. I personally dont want to comment on it, Meeks replied, calling himself an observer. I know other members of the board will have a problem with it because it can escalate into an issue like the one thats been dealt with in the past. Meeks did not detail what problem the county commission has dealt with in the past. e biggest reghting issues faced by commissioners has been criticism leveled by Chieand that the county is dictating where Chieand can ght res and also cutting Chieands reghting revenues. e latest grievance by Chieand is that the county doesnt want to license an Advanced Life Support non-transport vehicle for Chieand Fire Rescue. e county commission holds the certicate of need for emergency medical services in the county. e commission would have to grant a CON to Chieand. Knowles would advise county commissioners on what he thinks should be done. e city is planning an April 22 public workshop at 5:30 p.m. at the Tommy Usher Center to demonstrate how an Advanced Life Support truck could save lives before a county ambulance arrives and to allow the Chieand public to comment on the issue. Edmondson and Weeks eventually agreed at Mondays meeting that the town should table the issue and obtain more information from the county. Councilman Bruce Greenlee, administrator of the Levy County Road Department, said the bottom line is that the town has signed an agreement with the county requiring prior approval by Moody of any contract with Williston. He said the town can deal with changing the language of the contract at a later time. Williston Fire Chief Lamar Stegall urged the council to go forward with the agreement, or at least approve it with the condition that nal approval would rest with the county. He said he had talked to Moody and Anne Bast Brown, the county attorney, and neither of them had a problem with the town inking the agreement with Williston. Stegall said he thought the issue would be mentioned at Tuesdays county commission meeting, but the subject wasnt discussed. e town council anticipates taking up the issue again at the next council meeting on April 21.County Forces Bronson to Postpone Decision on Williston Fire Agreement continued from page 1AJudge Tim Browning Swears in Four Williston City Council Members continued from page 1A funds come from federal and state grant funds. e Florida Department of Transportation will pay $950,000 of the project and the Federal Aviation Administration $1,630,000. Council members postponed approval of a special exception permit to establish the new Williston Middle High School on a piece of residential property at the corner of County Road 316 and U.S. 41. City sta said the school district had not provided all the information needed for the legal advertisement. e issue had to be tabled. Cli Lowry, the new head football coach and athletic director at Williston High School introduced himself. He said he was looking forward to earning the support of the community. He said spring football practice begins on May 1 and the spring game is May 23 at Interlachen. Lowry said if people will give the program a chance he believes they will be happy with the results on and o the eld. As a nal matter, council members received a summary of the budget. Most departments were in good shape and budget spending is within the expected range except for Williston Fire Rescue. e re department is 25 percent over budget at this point in the scal year. e department was hit with 14 calls as a result of a storm that passed through. e high call level may be part of the problem. Cason said he wouldnt mind the department being 12-14 percent over budget at the end of the year if the over spending was the result of a heavy call load. But if its just overspent I have a problem with that, Cason said. Cason added that sometimes when he is signing checks for the city he sees expenditures that make him scratch his head, and sometimes its in the re department. Hethcoat defended the department, saying the leadership is careful with spending. eyre too careful watching the budget to just go and overspend, Hethcoat said. Williston Head FootballCoach and Athletic Director Cli Lowry introduces himself to the city council.Reddick Firm Apparent Low Bidder on Bronson Sewer Project continued from page 1A Town Clerk Kelli Brettel said construction activities should begin in June. Most residents will see no construction along the highway frontage on U.S. 27A, the main highway through Bronson. e town clerk said the Kangaroo convenience store and Cameron Asbell Insurance Agency will connect through the back side of their businesses, as will McKenzies Bar, the Bronson Motel and Bronson Restaurant. Some business, such as the new Dollar General Market, wont get sewer through this project. e sewer line will extend to the Levy County Courthouse, up North Court Street, and along Marshburn Drive, according to Brettel. e town is hoping that the additional sewer lines will improve economic development changes and bring jobs to the county seat. e other bidders were Osteen Brothers in Gainesville with a base bid of $3,036,485; Art Walker Construction in Lowell with a base bid of $3,152,307; Worth Construction and Development Inc. in Live Oak with a base bid of $2,547,870; Andrews Paving of Gainesville with a base bid of $2,271,387; and American Construction of Panama City with a base bid of $2,983,636. e Illegal Gaming Task Force served search warrants today in ve Florida counties targeting internet cafs owned by Ivan Vega, 1873 Pine Bay Drive, Lake Mary, Fla., andPeter Miller, 120 Sand Castle Way, Neptune Beach, Fla. ese warrants represent a continuing crackdown on the operators of illegal gambling centers around Florida known as internet cafs. Along with todays operation, Ivan Vega was also arrested on a warrant from an earlier investigation conducted by State Attorney Willie Meggs of the 2nd Judicial Circuit.Vega was charged with keeping a gambling house, manufacture, sale, possession of coin operated devices, lottery, and plays at games of chance. ese warrants are a key step in investigating organizations claiming to be internet cafs but actually conducting illegal gaming. My Oce of Statewide Prosecution will continue to collaborate with law enforcement on these cases, stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. Search warrants were executed inDuval, Columbia, Marion, Brevard,Lake andcounties. During the execution of warrants, Gaming Task Force investigators seized computers, cash related to the illegal activity, banking records and employee rosters. ese warrants will likely lead to the arrests of key gures within these organizations for racketeering and money laundering, said Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey. is is a warning to other so-called internet caf operators. If you operate outside the law, you are a target. Members of the Illegal Gaming Task Force include FDLE Agents, Seminole County Sheri Donald Eslinger, Volusia County Sheri Ben Johnson and the Oce of Statewide Prosecution. is Task Force is sending a message to internet caf operators who operate outside of the law. We are going to continue to enforce the laws of the state and you will be held accountable, said Seminole County Sheri Donald Eslinger.

4A A Halo for Selshness Thomas SowellCreators Syndicatee recent Supreme Court decision over-ruling some Federal Election Commission restrictions on political campaign contributions has provoked angry reactions on the left. at is what often happens whenever the High Court rules that the First Amendment means what it says -free speech for everybody. When the Supreme Court declared in 2010 that both unions and corporations had a right to buy political ads, that was considered outrageous by the left. President Obama called the decision devastating and said it will open the oodgates for special interests. ose unfamiliar with political rhetoric may not know that special interests mean people who support your opponents. Ones own organized supporters -such as labor unions supporting President Obama -are never called special interests. All politicians are against special interests, by denition. ey all want their own supporters to have the right to free speech, but not those individuals and groups so benighted as to support their opponents. Even in an age of polarization and gridlock, the one area in which it is easy to get bipartisan support in Congress is in passing campaign nance laws, restricting how much money can be spent publicizing political candidates. What Congressional Democrats and Republicans have in common is that they are all incumbents, and they all want to keep their jobs. Publicity is necessary to win elections, and incumbents get millions of dollars worth of free publicity from the media. Incumbents can all ponticate in Congress and be covered by C-SPAN. ey can get interviewed on network television, have their pictures in the newspapers, and send out mail to their constituents back home -and none of this costs them a dime. Congressional stas, paid by the taxpayers, are supposed to help members of Congress with the burdens of their oce, but a major part of their stas work is to help get them re-elected. ats not just during campaign years. Everything members of Congress do is done with an eye toward re-election. Any outsider who wants to challenge an incumbent at the next Congressional election has to pay hard cash to buy ads and arrange other forms of publicity, in order just to get some comparable amount of name-recognition, so as to have any serious chance of winning an election against an incumbent. Few people have the kind of money it takes for such a campaign, so they have to raise money -in the millions of dollars -to pay for what incumbents get free of charge. Campaign nance laws that restrict who can contribute how much money, who can run political ads, etc., are all restrictions on political challengers who have to buy their own publicity. If truth-in-packaging laws applied to Congress, a campaign nance law would have to be labeled an Incumbents Protection Act. e very high rate of incumbent re-elections, even while polls show the public disgusted with Congress in general, shows how well incumbents are protected. e media are accessories to this scam. So long as the information and opinions that reach the public are selected by mainstream media people, whom polls show to be overwhelmingly on the left, the lefts view of the world prevails. Hence the great alarm in the media, and in equally one-sided academia, over the emergence of conservative talk radio programs and the Fox News Channel on television. No longer can the three big broadcast television networks determine what the public will and will not see, nor two or three leading newspapers determine what is and is not news. Nobody wants to give up that kind of power. When businesses that are demonized in the mainstream media, and in academia, can buy ads to present their side of the story, that is regarded in both the media and academia as distortion. At the very least, it can cost the left their self-awarded halo. It is fascinating to see how some people -in both politics and the media -can depict their own narrow self-interest as a holy crusade for the greater good of society. e ability of the human mind to rationalize is one of the wonders of the world.omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COMWritten by Alex Newman For over a year now, Americans have been up in arms over the Obama administrations unconstitutional eorts to bribe and bludgeon state governments into surrendering control over K-12 education through the controversial so-called Common Core national standards and the outrage is still growing. A peek beneath the surface, however, reveals that the nationalization of American schools is actually just one component of a much broader global agenda being pushed by the Obama administration, the United Nations, Bill Gates, and others: the globalization of education. In fact, just this week, an invitation-only conference hosted by former Florida Governor and pro-Common Core ringleader Jeb Bush entitled Globalization of Higher Education took place in Texas. Among the attendees: Hillary Clinton, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, former World Bank President Robert Zoellick, UNESCO ocials, university presidents, and more. While higher education appears to be the next target of reformers, the globalization of K-12 schooling is on the verge of completion at least if the American people do not rise up and stop it. For decades now, the globalists at UNESCO and other UN outts have been openly plotting to impose what they sometimes refer to as the World Core Curriculum on all of humanity. According to the agency, it is all linked to UN Agenda 21. In addition to gathering up unprecedented amounts of data on everyone, the global education reform movement is essentially seeking to instill radical new values in children turning them into global citizens with views inherently at odds with Biblical Christianity to facilitate the total regimentation of human society. Countless programs and initiatives such as Education for All are working toward that goal. Despite the virtual media blackout, none of it is much of a secret even in the United States. In fact, Obamas Education Secretary Arne Duncan even boasts openly that the U.S. Department of Education he leads is cooperating with groups such as the United Nations, often dubbed a dictators club, to improve education in America. In a 2010 speech to UNESCO, Duncan even referred to the UN education agency as one of the administrations global partners in the OPINION Letter to the Editor Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateAttention, class: A Common Core mouthpiece wants to rap my knuckles with his Gates Foundation-funded ruler. In response to my column two weeks ago about the marketing overlords pushing the Fed Ed racket, Chad Colby of Achieve Inc. demanded corrections. Lets go to school. I wanted to take a moment to highlight two points that were incorrect regarding Achieve, Colby complained. Contrary to Ms. Malkins assertion, Achieve employs no lobbyists and we never have. No? Never? Someone didnt do his homework. Mr. Colby, meet Patricia Sullivan. Shes the founding executive director of Achieve and a career lobbyist who has bounced around D.C. for the past quarter-century in inuence-peddling positions for the Gates Foundation-funded National Governors Association, Council for Chief State School Ocers and Center on Education Policy. She has advocated for trade groups, a teachers union and her own consulting rm. ats Washington-speak for lobbying. And let me introduce Mr. Colby to Ronn Robinson, a founding senior vice president of Achieve and veteran Democratic and corporate education lobbyist for former Washington Gov. Booth Gardner and Boeing. According to e Hill newspapers column titled, ahem, Lobbying World, Not-a-Lobbyist Robinson left Achieve several years ago to lobby for the D.C.-based National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE). NCEE is the multimillion-dollar Gates Foundation-funded advocacy (read: lobbying) group founded by Marc Tucker, the godfather of Common Core-style schemes and top-down control masquerading as reform. He has dominated the D.C. education-lobbying scene since before Bill Clinton was in oce. Like Achieve, Tuckers NCEE is a 501(c)(3) nonprot that crusades for ever-increasing federal involvement in every aspect of education while denying its brazen lobbying activities. In the early 1990s, NCEE (established with $5 million in New York taxpayer-funded seed grants) paid Hillary Clinton more than $100,000 to direct the groups Workforce Skills Program while she worked at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas. After the Clintons moved into the White House, Tucker sent a now-infamous letter to Mrs. Clinton outlining a radical progressive plan to remold the entire American system through a centralized national-standards Trojan Horse. Tuckers proposal represented a new approach to government by elitist bureaucrats to create a seamless web that literally extends from cradle to grave. e Clinton White House soon after delivered federal Goals 2000 and School-to-Work laws. Tucker has explicitly advocated that the United States largely abandon the beloved emblem of American education: local control. Today, his acolytes hail the creation of a P20W system to groom students from prenatal (P) through graduate school (20) and into the workplace (W). Tuckers close ally, Mike Cohen, was one of the cadre of education radicals called on to shape his plan and was name-checked in his letter to Hillary. Cohen served as a top education adviser to Bill Clinton and his Education Secretary Richard Riley, and as a Dont-Call-Me-A-Lobbyist lobbyist for the NGA before becoming president of Achieve Inc. in 2003. And that brings us back to Mr. Chad Colby and Achieve Inc.s second complaint. As I reported in my column, the incestuous relationships among these lobbying groups and their Common Core boondoggle partners are deep and wide. I noted that in addition to stang the Common Core standards writing committee and leading the public relations campaign, Achieve Inc. is the project management partner of the Common Core-aligned, tax-subsidized PARCC testing conglomerate. Colby protested that Achieve is no longer aliated with the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) and that its contract ended with them in December of last year. Clean break? Hah. Achieve and PARCC are inextricably intertwined. Dont take my word for it. Take PARCCs. ough the contract with Achieve ended last year, a PARCC letter to Arizona education ocials explains that no ones really going anywhere: e Achieve sta members that have conducted the work of PARCC over the last several years are transitioning to PARCC, Inc. so that they can continue to maintain the leadership and programmatic expertise that will see the project through the end of the development period, as well as the sustainment of the assessment moving beyond the grant. Many of them have been involved in work surrounding student assessment and academic standards for 15 or more years... Moreover, PARCC makes crystal clear that the Achieve sta members that will make up PARCC, Inc. ... have been intimately involved in the development of each of PARCCs procurements, subsequent contracts and contract management. Despite spending tens of millions of dollars on advocacy along with millions more in federal and state taxpayer grants and subsidies, the Beltway educrats propaganda machine is crumbling. Tens of thousands of parents and students are now boycotting the rackets PARCC/Achieve eld tests. States are withdrawing from standards, technology and data-collection plans in droves. Looks like its time to ask the Gates Foundation to pour more money down the Common Core/Fed Ed Not Lobbying vortex, Mr. Colby.

Today, education is a global public good unconstrained by national boundaries.... It is no surprise that economic interdependence brings new global challenges and educational demands, Duncan told the globalist UN bureaucrats, boasting of the billions of dollars U.S. taxpayers were being forced to send foreign governments and institutions for educational reform abroad. Our goal for the coming year will be to work closely with global partners, including UNESCO, to promote qualitative improvements and system-strengthening. e education agenda, of course, has less to do with actually educating children and more to do with promoting globalist political goals and values through indoctrination at school. Education is still the key to eliminating gender inequities, to reducing poverty, to creating a sustainable planet, and to fostering peace, Duncan continued, with sustainability being UN-speak for central planning and global government. Quoting former South African President Nelson Mandela, Duncan noted that education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Unsurprisingly, billionaire UN devotee and populationcontrol zealot Bill Gates the primary nancier of all things Common Core, other than U.S. taxpayers via the federal government is deeply intertwined with the planetary eort. According to the latest estimates, while his own children attend an elite non-Common Core private school, the Microsoft founder has poured more than $2 billion into creating and promoting the dubious national standards for everyone else. Together with UNESCO, though, Gates is determined to impose the globalist vision of education on children worldwide. In 2004, for example, on behalf of Microsoft, Gates personally signed a Cooperation Agreement with UNESCO to accelerate the globalization of education through information technology and communication. Together, UNESCO and Microsoft aspire for there to be a quantum leap in the quality of courses and in accelerating their uptake by educationalists ... through the availability of standards, guidelines or benchmarks, the agreement explains, calling for the creation of a master curriculum (Syllabus). UNESCO will explore how to facilitate content development, the document states. After signing the agreement, as reported by Eagle Forum chief Phyllis Schlay in 2005, UNESCO Director General Koichiro Matsuura gave a speech oering more insight into the plot. Among the goals of the partnership, the UN agency boss explained: fostering web-based communities of practice including content development and worldwide curricula reecting UNESCO values. As the document itself explains, Microsoft supports the objectives of UNESCO as stipulated in UNESCOs Constitution. It may or may not be a surprise to many Americans to learn that in a 2011 document about an advanced training program produced by UNESCOs International Institute for Educational Planning, the would-be global Department of Education, even uses the term Common Core. e course outline, which boasts that the UN institute has trained more than 1,500 education planners and managers from around the world, adds under the Common Core header: Educational planners and managers need insight into the eects of demographic shifts, globalization, and social and political change on education. e fourth part of the course presents the main development frameworks, including the new international commitments as part of Education for All/ Fast Track Initiative, Poverty Reduction, Millennium Development Goals, and discusses their impact on the role and methods/instruments of educational planning, continues the document, which essentially outlines the training program being used to put legions of globalized education bureaucrats devoted to UNESCOs vision in key positions worldwide. UNESCOs vision for a truly global education regime under the World Core Curriculum goes back decades, too, as its ocials openly admit. In the middle of my life I discovered that the only true, objective education I had received was from the United Nations where the earth, humanity, our place in time and the worth of the human being were the overriding concerns, wrote the late Robert Muller, former UN assistant secretary general and the architect of the World Core Curriculum plot. So at the request of educators I wrote the World Core Curriculum, the product of the United Nations, the meta-organism of human and planetary evolution. He described his planetary Common Core-like scheme as a curriculum of our universal knowledge which should be taught in all schools of E arth. O ne of his chief inspirations, he said, was former UN Secretary-General U ant, a Marxist radical, whom Muller quotes as saying: e world will not change and nd peace, if there is not a new education. A nother one of Mullers major inspirations was UN apparatchik and occultist A lice Bailey, who founded the Lucis T rust (formerly Lucifer Publishing Company) and claimed to channel spirits. UNESCOs use of the term Common Core, too, goes back decades. In 1984, for example the same year President Ronald Reagan withdrew U.S. participation from the UN agency the outt released a 51-page document entitled A Methodological Guide to the Application of the Notion of Common Core in the Training of Various Categories of Educational Personnel. at scheme was aimed at training teachers worldwide using the same standards, so that they, in turn, could fan out across the globe to educate students all over the world. Even as far back as the late 1940s, UNESCO was actively promoting the use of education as a means to achieve what its rst Secretary General, Julian Huxley, described as political unication in some sort of world government, which he claimed was necessary. In a 1949 pamphlet on using the classroom to promote world understanding, UNESCO said: As long as the child breathes the poisoned air of nationalism, education in world-mindedness can only produce precarious results. So, to deal with that, schools should use various means to combat family attitudes. Critics and analysts have slowly started taking notice. Some have decried Common Core as the nationalization of American education. Far more dangerous, however, is the globalism of Common Core that demotes American values, undermines American constitutional principles and detaches students from their families and faith, observed Catholic journalist and public speaker Mary Jo Anderson in a piece for Crisis magazine. Common Core is simply the newest attempt in the decades-old battle (Outcome Based Education, Goals 2000) to impose a U.N. globalist worldview aimed at peace, sustainability and economic stability at the expense of freedom. Indeed, Common Core represents merely the culmination of decades of quiet eorts by the globalist education establishment to foist its new values for its envisioned new society on the American people. In 1994, for example, Democrat President Bill Clinton signed e Goals 2000: Educate America Act foisting National Standards on schools across America. en, Republican President George W. Bush signed the No Child Left Behind Act developing national accountability schemes to ensure that government schools were teaching what the federal government demanded. Before the 1960s, of course, the federal government had virtually no role whatsoever in American education. e Constitution specically prohibits it by not granting any power over education to the national government, and thus, reserving that sphere for the states or the people. Today, however, schools are largely operating under federal control, despite the rhetoric, as they comply with federal mandates to keep the federal funds owing. Common Core is merely the next step but almost certainly close to the end game. Even before UNESCO came on the scene, tyrants and would-be tyrants always understood that controlling education and the minds of the youth, by extension was the key to power. From Marx and Stalin to Hitler, all of them knew corrupting children was their path to total domination. Today, Americans are faced with powerful globalist forces determined to shape the views and minds of their children through globalized education. And the outcome of this battle will almost certainly determine the future course of humanity. Alex Newman is a correspondent for e New American, covering economics, education, politics, and more.

Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida House have fully funded the facility in their budgets but the Florida Senate had set aside only half of the funding as of last week. Superintendent Bob Hastings said he has been assured by the lawmakers representing Levy County that the facility will be funded. Construction would most likely begin after the rst of the year. I was up there all last week. ey are saying it will be ne. Not to worry, Hastings said. Matt Marino, representing Oelrich Construction, which is partnered with Gilbane Construction to build the facility, was present for the afternoon retreat on a sunny day in Williston. Marino said Oelrich Construction has an outreach program to recruit local tradesman to work on building the new school. Smaller contractors can be used as subcontractors to the primary builder on the large project. He said tradesman interested in helping build the school should call 352/472-1334, a Newberry phone number. Oelrich lives in Williston and said he brings the attitude that this project is local. His stepmother is Judy Marino, who works in the Levy County Courthouse. His mother Susan Billings works for Levy County Emergency Medical Services. His father is Vince Marino. I live in Williston. I bring the mentality we live here, he said. Olerich was part of a presentation that was made in Bronson to the school board and administrative sta. He noted that the new school will be constructed across the street from Williston Elementary School. Whats nice is keeping all the education in one spot in the city. I think the school board did a great job of choosing the site, Marino said. e get-together for faculty and sta took place in the approximate location of the future main hallway of the school. e high school and middle school wings are separated by an administrative open oce area. Sta will see down both wings from the oce area. Capt. Frank Clegg, who runs the successful ROTC program at Williston Middle High School closely examined the drawing of the interior of the school and located the portion of the facility that will benet his program. e new high school has an indoor ring range for me, he said. Im excited to have a range right next to the classroom. e ROTC program is a credit course that can be taken as an elective.

8A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners Tuesday unanimously approved a preliminary plat for Legacy Acres near Williston despite questions about whether the road serving the future subdivision was wide enough and whether building a subdivision within 50 yards of peanut dryers was a good idea. Owner Ronald Gilman answered one question being raised by Commissioner Mike Joyner when he said Legacy Acres would be deed restricted to site built homes, which eliminates the possibility of mobile homes on the property. Gilman is planning to subdivide his land into ten 2-acre lots. Joyner said also questioned the wisdom of building a residential subdivision next to peanut dryers. e dryers can be loud during the peanut season. Joyner didnt want taxpayers being held liable for approving the construction of homes close to the farm operation. Im just trying to look out for the taxpayers money, Joyner said. Commissioner Danny Stevens measured the road Gilman plans to use as an access road. He said the road is 15-feet wide. Stevens said the narrow road concerns him because buses and vehicles use the road. When the subdivision is nished, the average household will have two vehicles. Stevens said some residents in the area have expressed concerns about the potential for trac problems on the narrow road. Stevens said Gilman may want to use a dierent road for the exit. e motion to approve the preliminary plat acknowledged that Gilman still has issues to address and he must impose deed restrictions that limit development to site built homes.Questions Remain Despite Preliminary County Approval of Williston Plat Inglis Septic Tank Problem Will Cost Federal Taxpayers $50,000By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterAfter a year of political wrangling and misres, Levy County Commissioners took the nal steps Tuesday to hopefully solve a messy septic tank problem at a federally rehabilitated home near Inglis. e septic tank drain eld at the home in Peaceful Acres could wind up costing federal taxpayers $50,000, and commissioners are literally ready to wash their hands of the problem. e Tarafa home was rehabilitated with federal funds from a Community Development Block Grant administered by Levy County, but what the county didnt know was that the septic tank system wasnt working properly. e grant administrator for the county, Jordan & Associates, attempted a couple of dierent solutions that didnt work and cost the grant program $20,000. e latest solution, to excavate the entire front yard and replace it with sandy soil, will cost another $30,000. e CDBG grant program will foot the bill. Were talking about $50,000 for a septic tank, said Commissioner Danny Stevens. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said he is well aware of the cost. He said the county commission did everything within its power to solve the problem. Bell said the county has reduced our exposure. He was referring to legal exposure if the drain eld doesnt work. I think everyone in this room would like to wipe their hands of it if they could, Bell said. Ronald Vanzant, president of Jordan & Associates, won approval to advertise for bids on the project. e bids will go out on April 10. A pre-bid conference is set for 10 a.m. on April 17 and the bid deadline is 4 p.m. on April 22. e work will involve taking down the carport. Approximately 1,650 square feet of the yard will be excavated down to 4.5 feet. And what if it doesnt work? Vanzant said if that happens, he will come back to consult with commissioners. But Vanzant said GSE Engineering & Consulting, Inc. believes the septic tank drain eld will work with the new design.Inglis Sidewalk Construction Begins April 15 Work is expected to begin April 15 on a project that will improve the ability for pedestrians to walk safely along U.S. 19 in Inglis. A ve-foot wide sidewalk will is being built along the east side of U.S 19 from the Withlacoochee River Bridge to County Road 40. It is also being constructed along the west side of U.S. 19 from the Withlacoochee River Bridge to North Inglis Avenue. Crosswalks are going to be installed at side streets and new wheelchair accessible ramps are being added at side streets and driveways. Daytime lane closures can be expected during construction. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained at all times. e project, combined with sidewalk construction in Gilchrist and Suwannee counties, should be completed in the fall. Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will oversee the project and has hired R.E. Arnold Construction, Inc., of Archer to build these sidewalks at a cost of $592,900. For additional information regarding this project or other FDOT projects around Northeast Florida, visit www. nroads.com or call 800-475-0044.

Chieand Fire Rescue bought a used re truck in Maryland, drove it to Chieand and refurbished it using reghters as the workers. Chieand police recently purchased two Crown Victoria police cars from Seminole County for a much reduced price rather than buying new police cars. e department used conscated drug funds to make the purchase. Its been lean, Pomeroy said. City Projects Coordinator Laurie Copeland said the city has made a conscious eort to operate as frugally as possible by not spending money unless it was absolutely necessary. We dont even have post-it notes. We cut up scrap paper for notes. We do everything we can to keep the costs down, Copeland said. e city raised the property tax millage rate last year by 1.25 mills when health insurance costs soared and the Florida Legislature shifted a higher percentage of the cost for the employee pensions to the city. e additional millage is expected to raise $143,000 in this years budget. e city levies 6 mills. Copeland said the city is aware that the cost of health insurance could rise considerably this year because of the Aordable Care Act, sometimes called Obamacare. Weve heard 10 percent on the low end and 40 percent on the extreme. We dont know. Its too early to shop for insurance, Copeland said. e Legislature may shift more state pension costs to cities. Chieand adjusted as best it could to the changing realities of running a municipality during the recession. e budget tightening and the loss of employees were painful. e City Commission thought the recession would probably last two years, but that turned out to be optimistic. Commissioners avoided raising property taxes for ve years, dipping into reserves until those funds were exhausted. e recession dragged on. I dont think anyone thought this recession was going to last as long as it has. When it rocked on ve years, the reality began to sink in. When we reached the sixth year, they (commissioners) broke down and raised taxes, Copeland said. Pomeroy credits his department heads with working together to reduce costs and working within their own departments to cut spending. He gives Copeland praise for writing the state and federal grants that have allowed the city to continue expanding and repairing its sewer and water systems, and improving its parks. He said the City Commission made strategic moves to conservatively manage the citys budget. Pomeroy said the city wants to keep property taxes as low as possible to attract businesses. e city has expanded its water and sewer lines northward. He believes those moves will eventually attract more businesses. He would like to lower taxes when the city pays o the last of its big loans in September. But commissioners will have to look rst at the citys nances. Copeland said the citys reserves have not caught up from the recession.

On April 3rd, Congressman Ted Yoho became the rst candidate in North Central Floridas 3rd Congressional district to qualify for the 2014 ballot. In order to qualify for the ballot it is necessary to have 4,476 signed petitions. Yoho had 4,818 certied petitions which is 300 more than required. Congressman Yoho said, I am thrilled that our team is the rst to qualify on the 2014 ballot. It is no easy task to collect nearly 4,500 petitions and I couldnt be more humbled by the outpouring of support from our local communities. Candidates have two options to get on the ballot petition onto the ballot by collecting 1 percent of the total registered voters signatures in the district or pay a $10,400 fee to be placed on the ballot. March 31 marked the end of qualifying via the petition process. Yoho said, Carolyn, our team and I want to thank all of the hardworking, dedicated volunteers, and supporters that helped us achieve our goal of qualifying by the petition method. It was important for us to qualify via the petition method instead of spending the precious donation dollars received by you, our valued individual supporters. We thank you for both. We began our campaign years ago as a small, grassroots movement and remain committed to that still. I look forward to seeing old friends on the campaign trail as well as new ones as we begin a new election year. e issues that impact our neighborhoods each and every day are what I have been and will continue to focus on. Its time to put America rst. Congressman Ted Yoho was rst elected in 2012. He represents 13 counties in North Central Florida which include Alachua, Clay, Bradford, Union, Columbia, Marion, Levy, Dixie, Gilchrist, Suwannee, Lafayette, Madison, and Hamilton.

Bronson AmVets Post 88 Riders Raise $2,000 in Support of Fisher House By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterIts common to see an ambulance, re truck or a sheris deputy racing toward an emergency on Levy Countys roads and highways, but its rare to see them up close. e Levy County Department of Public Safety sponsored Safety Expo Saturday north of Chieand gave the public an opportunity to see the people and vehicles who respond to their emergencies up close. We assembled the whole area of law enforcement, re and Emergency Medical Services to give the public an opportunity to come out and see how it works, said Public Safety Director David Knowles. No one sees us unless they call 911. is gives us an opportunity to expose what we do in a non-emergency situation. Agencies represented at the Expo were the Levy County Sheris Department, Williston Police Department, Chieand Police Department, Chieand Fire Rescue, Williston Fire Rescue, Bronson Fire Rescue, Cedar Key Fire Rescue, Fanning Springs Fire Rescue and Inglis Fire Rescue. Luther White, the landowner, allowed the Department of Public Safety to use the property o U.S. 19 north of Chieand for the Expo. e most popular demonstration was the response to a mock vehicle accident and the use of special equipment, such as the Jaws of Life, to cut the doors o the vehicle and remove the occupants. e actors for the drama were Brian NesSmith as the driver and Devon Jones as his passenger. Bronson Interim Fire Chief Dennis Russell donated a used van and a used car for the demonstration. Paramedics then transported the patient to a waiting Public Safety Expo Gives Close Up View of Emergency Services As part of a mock exercise, a reghter demonstrates on actor Devon Jones how he would stabilize the neck area as reghters cut their way into the vehicle.

It worked on some of the older boys, Strickland said. It was good to get some wins at home. Weve struggled at home. Weve been real road warriors. e 10-5 overall record is the best the Eagles has seen in four years. e team will have to continue winning for the season to be termed successful, Strickland said.

Even our Pastor wore a plastic smile, and he was the one whod recommended this twelve session marriage building seminar. e class began innocently enough, with some little teaching about how were to love our spouses and all. I kept from nodding through most of it, but then, to my horror, they announced wed end each nights session with some sappy little share-fest. Oh brother! How in the world had I let my wife talk me into this? ankfully we fellows werent the only ones suering. I noticed several wives taking light jabs to the ribs for spouting o during their confession session. When it came my turn, I managed to grunt something to the eect of, Yeah, ahh Well, ahh Sure, Im for all that stu. I guess... Believe meI did good compared to some of the other fellows. One big guy named Jim was brutally honest. I dont have anything to say, he croaked in a voice low enough to trigger a tsunami. en he folded his arms and nodded to the poor sucker who was next. Now thats worth the price of admission, I giggled under my breath. After a couple of weeks people began to loosen up. I mean really loosen up. ey were shedding their steeple people exteriors left and right. Ill be honest; I was getting a little nervous. What if Angie disregarded my warnings and told o on me? Eventually, I must admit, I could no longer deny the teaching was helpful, even if it was causing Angie and me to argue all the way home each night. I was even enjoying my turn during the snitch-fest at the end. Most of all, I was reveling in the fact that Angie and I werent the only couple at the Church who still had a few issues to iron out. Maybe thats what nally helped old Jim to break his silence. One night, out of the blue, he uncrossed his arms and spoke a couple of sentences. Okay, so it was only an angry response to one of his wifes earlier accusations, but it was a start! e next week he did it again. Too bad it was our last regular class. Jim might have accidentally bubbled over pretty soon. For the nal night they planned a fancy marriage vows renewal shindig. ey asked each of us to invite as many people as we could and prepare a few words to say about what we had learned in class. I was nervous for a week. I could only imagine how Jim felt. When that night arrived we all got married again. at was the easy part. Waiting for our turn to speak was nerve grinding. Everyone did ne though, saying wonderful things about the program, eloquently trying to persuade their family members to get some help too. We all held our breath when Jim was called to the podium. To our surprise, that big fellow lumbered up and snatched that microphone o the stand like he had been waiting for this moment all of his life. I dont recall all of what he said over the next ten minutes, but it started with, I came into the class thinking I was the only one who had problems By the time he nished preaching, family members were practically climbing over each other to get back to the sign-up sheet. It certainly was a night to remember, and one that helps me realize why Im often so open and transparent in these stories. I believe people need to know Christians suer the same temptations, trials, and hardships as everyone else. Unfortunately, we often sin like everyone else too, despite having all of Gods help. Yes, we all fall short of Gods glory. One of the biggest ways is when we try to pretend we are holier than thou. Christians are not superior people. Were just plain folks who nally got honest enough with ourselves to recognize our need for help, and nally accepted Gods invitation to hide ourselves in Christ. God is calling you today. Why dont you climb into the ark and be saved with us? Ask Jesus to be your Lord. ( For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of Gods glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacriced His life, shedding His blood Romans 3:23-25 NLT) But Anyway Big Jim is one of my best friends at Church now, though I can hardly get a word in edgewise around him. Hes also one of the most devout Christian men I know. Hes the real deal. at class really helped him come out of his shell. I guess he just needed to know we Christians are all in the same boat. -Guy Sheeld Church CalendarFish Dinner at Holy Family Catholic Church Apr. 11Fish Dinner on Fri., Apr. 11 at Holy Family Catholic Church Parish Hall.

Church Calendar continued from page 4B e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) scheduled the rst of four license-free recreational shing days on the rst full weekend in April each year (April 5-6, this year), because it coincides with a productive freshwater shing period, when the weather is usually pleasant. Many of Floridas recreational sport shes, including black bass, bluegill and redear sunsh, move into shallow waters to spawn during spring, making them more available for anglers to catch. License-free freshwater shing weekends are a great time to introduce other family members, friends and neighbors to shing and see if they and you would like to take up the sport. Besides enjoying the fun of reeling in a sh, many people nd recreational shing to be a good motivator to enjoy the great outdoors and living a more active, healthy and natural lifestyle. During license-free freshwater shing weekends (the rst weekend in April and the second weekend in June), no recreational shing license is required. However, all other bag limit and season, gear and size restrictions apply. To further encourage recreational shing, the FWC will conduct a special contest during April to collect photos of anglers. All you have to do is post a photo of your family shing in Floridas fresh waters on Twitter or Instagram with #FLsh (or you can use #FWC-FamilyFishing). In return for your eorts, the FWC will enter you into a drawing for one of six surprise packages, each including a $50 gift card from Bass Pro Shops, thanks to TrophyCatch; a Glen Lau video library on DVD; and assorted shing lures, hooks, line and goodies to make your next trip even more productive. Submitted photos must be your own. Editing software must not be used, and the photo cannot include inappropriate content. Photos should be taken during April while freshwater shing in Florida and include multiple anglers enjoying their day together on the water. e FWC may subsequently use the photos for educational or outreach purposes. So where will you go for your next freshwater shing trip? Plenty of resources are available online to help you choose. Start by visiting MyFWC.com/Fishing and under Freshwater Fishing pick Sites/Forecasts. ere you can nd the top destinations for pursuing bass, bream, catsh and other species in 2014, as well as regional forecasts and tips for local waters; information on all 80 FWC sh management areas; and links to our boat ramp nder and freshwater sh attractor locations. Another good resource is TakeMeFishing.org/State/FL. Freshwater anglers have enjoyed wonderful shing so far in 2014 across Florida, and this spring should see a continuation of that trend. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) incentive-based conservation program, TrophyCatch, rewards anglers for participating in citizen-science, by catching, documenting and releasing largemouth bass heavier than 8 pounds. Besides the immediate gratication of releasing these older bass to ght another day, anglers provide valuable information about the number and April Freshwater Fishing in Florida
