Sigler, an attorney, said she and her business partners, Garry G.

I guess they want to see what Crab Fest is all about, McCallum said. McCallum has met with the Williston Ministerial Alliance in hopes of having more ears and eyes on the street to spot problems before they occur and he said the cooperation has been good. County Gave Department of Public Safety Sweeping Powers in 2011By T erry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners have operated an ambulance service for many years, but in 2011 commissioners took a big step beyond just operating ambulances to establishing a Levy County Public Safety Department with much broader powers. e Levy County Department of Public Safety (LCDPS) has been at the center of many controversies since its inception, starting with the relocation of one ambulance each from Chieand and Williston to the area of the Levy County Jail in Bronson. Other conicts have arisen from the county asserting control of all re services within the unincorporated areas of the county and sometimes taking control of areas previously served by cities by establishing part-time re departments that operate only during daylight hours. A county commission resolution approved on Dec. 20, 2011 established LCPDS to provide medical advance life support (ALS) and basic life support (BLS) transportation services for the public, as well as non-transport services for re rescue, and re services in the unincorporated areas. e resolution abolished the traditional Fire Advisory Board that gave volunteer re chiefs in the county and cities the opportunity to advise county commissioners on re issues and debate among themselves how the county re tax revenue should be distributed among their departments. e resolution consolidated power in the LCDPS and gave county commissioners who control the department much greater authority. By T erry WittSenior Staff WriterImagine suering a heart attack when every ambulance in the county was busy with other calls, or the closest ambulance is 20 minutes away. It happens. Would you survive the ordeal? Chieand Fire Rescue is often the rst responder on the scene of major trac crashes and life-threatening medical emergencies in the Chieand area. But city reghter paramedics can only do so much without having Advanced Life Support capabilities at the scene. ey must wait for ambulances to arrive. e city studied Levy County Sheris Department dispatch records in February and found that Chieand reghters waited almost 7 total hours for ambulances to arrive at 104 medical emergencies in the Chieand area, according to Fire Chief James Harris. e Chieand City Commission will host a 5:30 p.m. public workshop Tuesday to make the case that Chieand Fire Rescue should be granted a certicate by the Levy County Commission to operate an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. Currently the city has no certicate for use of ALS equipment or medical drugs. e workshop will take place at the Tommy Usher Center on County Road 345 in Chieand. Chieand Fire Rescue will conduct demonstrations showing how far they can go in treating a patient before they must stop because it has no ALS unit. Fire Chief James Harris will then discuss how much more reghter paramedics could legally do for the same patient if the county commission permitted the city to use ALS equipment and medical drugs.What Is a Life Worth?Chieand Public Workshop to Focus on Need for Advanced Life Support Truck for Medical EmergenciesChieand May Hire Cleanup Person after Easter Egg Hunt Trashes City Park Bad Bad Easter Bunny Thousands Visit the Levy County Fair in WillistonBy T erry WittSenior Staff Writere Levy County Fair nished its four days of entertainment Sunday with livestock shows and two karaoke contests.

When the Deputy Sheri activated his emergency lights, Frazier accelerated rapidly and ran a stop sign. e Deputy Sheri discontinued the chase. e Deputy Sheri later found Fraziers vehicle where it had crashed into a nearby home but Frazier was no longer at the crash scene. e crash caused approximately $1000 in damage to the residence. rough investigation, Task Force members determined Frazier would likely be at his girlfriends mobile home in Williston ursday morning.

A trac homicide investigator said Koschatzky was not using a seatbelt at the time of the collision. FHP doesnt know if the child was wearing a seatbelt. e investigation is continuing.What Is a Life Worth? continued from page 1A is will be eye-opening, Harris said. e city workshop sets the stage for a joint meeting between the Chieand City Commission and Levy County Commission at a later date to discuss emergency medical and re service. e county commission owns and operates Emergency Medical Services in Levy County. It operates six ambulances through the Levy County Department of Public Safety, an agency created on Dec. 20, 2011 when the county commission adopted a resolution giving its public safety department authority to operate EMS services and all re services in the unincorporated areas of Levy County. e state licenses the county commission to operate Emergency Medical Services through a Certicate of Need. County commissioners have the power to grant Chieand a CON for an ALS non-transport truck, or deny the CON. Commissioners have been reluctant to grant the city a CON up to this point. County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell has been invited to the city workshop along with Commissioner Mike Joyner. Chieand lies in Bells district. Joyners career was in law enforcement. City ocials hope to convince the county to grant a CON for an ALS truck. e truck couldnt transport patients, but it could give them lifesaving treatment before the ambulance arrives, according to Harris. is is not political. Its not about power. Its about saving human lives, said City Manager Kevin Gay. Gay said Chieand Rotary Club has agreed to host a Beast Feast to raise funds for purchasing the ALS equipment and to purchase the rst round of medical drugs the ALS unit would use to treat patients at the scene of medical emergencies. He said the city is not asking the county to fund the ALS truck. e city would keep close track of the medicines used to treat the patient and would ask the county to reimburse the city only for the drugs used. If three nitroglycerin pills were used, for example, the county would be asked to give the city three nitroglycerin pills. Gay said he wants to hear from residents. He wants them to voice their opinions at the workshop. But its not a gripe session and it wont be a place for county commissioners to grandstand on a soapbox. eir time will come in a workshop between the two commissions, Gay said. e demonstrations by Chieand Fire Rescue will illustrate what could happen to a critically ill patient when time expires before receiving Advanced Life Support care before an ambulance arrives. Chief Harris will then go into what we could do if we had ALS, Gay said. is is going to be real life. We wont be fudging anything. We want residents to understand the stopping point for lifesaving eorts. Were not asking for any money; nothing. is is about human life and how much it is valued. Commissioners have total control of re services in the unincorporated areas of the county and can contract with cities to provide these services. e resolution also gave commissioners power to operate Emergency Medical Services as they saw t throughout the county without consulting cities. With the adoption of the resolution, cities have less input into how the county operates EMS and how county re-tax funding in distributed. Cities can still make their voices heard, as will be the case Tuesday when Chieand City Commissioners will host a public workshop on a re rescue issue. But the county commission has control of the EMS and county re-tax funding and the political power that goes with it. LCDPS has no budget line item of its own in the county commission budget, but the agency administers EMS funding and re funding. e EMS budget for the current year is $5,559,597. e county re budget is $2,401,119, which means LCDPS administers nearly $8 million in county funding for emergency services. Below is a summary of Resolution 2011-67 that established the LCPDS. of Public Safety which shall be responsible for the health, safety and welfare of County citizens through the management, operation, and control of emergency medical ALS/BLS response transport and non-transport and re/rescue response and related functions of County government. e functions and responsibilities of the Department of Public Safety shall include: in Levy County, including ALS or BLS transport and non-transport services. the unincorporated areas of the County and within municipal boundaries that have been authorized by the Board and the governing body of the aected municipality, or through the use of contracts with volunteer re departments, municipalities or private entities. enforcement services. training programs and training records for reghters who provide re/rescue services to the county. in conjunction with other County departments and with federal, state and local government entities. governments and federal or state governments, or agencies for the mutual benecial provision of emergency medical response or transport and nontransport services and/or re rescue services. previously performed by the advisory body known as the Fire Advisory Board, or the Levy County Fire Protection Advisory Committee. determined by the county commission and County Coordinator Freddie Moody. the resolution.

The Levy County Journal4 AA pril 17, 2014www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 It is Tax Time, the dreaded April 15th time of year. e basic idea of helping the government keep us secure and free is a good one but how we go about it can end up a very heated discussion. And this year there are a lot more ingredients being stirred in the tax cauldron than most years. Every age group is part of the agencies all inclusive special group like it or not. And you would think that this administrations play to the young folks so they can support the massive Obamacare experiment would make the college-bound and newly career-oriented youth exempt somewhat from the heavy-handed tactics being dealt out by the IRS. But that is not the case. It appears that the 2011 farm bill had a sneaky little provision in it (funny how those pesky little add-ons get in there isnt it) that took out a 10-year statute of limitations on debts owed to the federal government. *Update* e noise of the media has forced the IRS to suspend the controversial program written below of going after the adult children of deceased taxpayers the government overpaid more than a decade ago. Acting Social Security Administration Commissioner Carolyn W. Colvin called a halt to the three-year-old program while the SSA reviews it. According to Mark Hinkle, an SSA spokesperson, We want to assure the public that we do not seek restitution through tax refund oset in cases w hen the debt in question was established prior to the debtor turning 18 years of age. Also, we do not use tax refund oset to collect the debt of a persons relative we only use it to collect the overpaid benets the person received for himself or herself. So what was that going to mean to our new young taxpayers? For the past three years the IRS has been collecting on social security debts overpaid by a mistake of the Social Security department itself to their parents dating all the way back to the 1960s and 1970s by withholding the debt monies from the tax refunds of the children. How about that! See how much Obama and crew care for you college students and new entrepreneurs of the nation. And, it appears, the government did not even have to prove that the debts were incurred in the rst place. SSA identied 400,000 people with old debt totaling $714 million and have collected $55 million so far through tax refund osets. e farm bill that triggered all this appeared as another Pelosi-Obamacare look-alike piece of legislation too big to mess with, had to pass it to see what was in it, and so far no one knows who tucked in this Machiavellian present but once it devoured its meal from an unsuspecting refund check, most didnt have the time or resources to ght to get it back. ey were in too much shock that it even happened. Such transparency! According to an investigative piece by the Washington Post one woman was 4 years old when her father died. Her mother then had ve children to raise and they received survivor benets until they were 18 for food and clothing. Social Security said that somewhere back there in 1977 someone got overpaid and now, 37 years later, the agency wants the money back from their own mistake. e mother is since dead so SSA wants this daughter to pay, not her siblings. e 58-year-old woman says they gave her no notice and SSA cant even prove she received any overpayment and are threatening to report her to the credit bureaus. e method starts with the oldest sibling and works down through the family until the debt is paid. According to SSA, they sent notices to a PO Box the woman has not owned for 35 years even though they have her current address! And to add fuel to the re, the IRS continued to hold this womans federal and state refunds and over-grabbed to the tune of $1,400. Once she got an attorney and the newspapers got a hold of the story, the excess amount forcibly taken from her by the government was refunded. Another man who was the victim of the shakedown tactics demanded a receipt from SSA. He was told not to expect anything. And there is more identity theft refunds. Over $3.6 billion dollars was doled out to identity thieves in 2011 through fraudulent tax refunds led by using stolen Social Security numbers. Some refunds were even sent to addresses in Lithuania, Ireland, China and Bulgaria. One address in Lithuania received 655 refunds according to a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. e IRS says they have all these fraud programs in place and have stepped up their investigative tactics but the identity thieves are getting more and more aggressive. And there are a few other waste and abuse problems plaguing the agency recently, like: wasting millions of dollars on crazy training videos; awarding over $70 million in bonuses for a job well done?; not collecting about $5.4 million in back taxes from contractors; overpaying low-income tax credits by $132 Billion; and allowing over $1 million to IRS executives to communte to work. And, by the way, over $11 billion in 2012 was credited by mistake for Earned Income Tax Credits. is was announced by the Treasury Department and accounts for 21 to 25 percent of all tax credits allowed that year. And most of all these are the people who will be administering Obamacare and in charge of all your health information and making sure your health is taken care of! Feels just so secure. Had enough? It looks like one of our own, Congressman Ted Yoho, is at least trying to get started on an answer and gather a consortium of fellow representatives to show the IRS that they are aware of the mismanagement of the billions and trillions of taxpayer dollars and they want an answer. is week Congressman Ted Yoho released a letter to IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen urging him to combat the problem of rampant identity theft-related tax fraud. Also signing the letter in support of his eorts were 36 of his colleagues. Signatures on page 5A.

To mark this years Tax Day, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today addressed constituent concerns about our broken tax code system and pointed to its stiing eect on the economy as proof of the need for tax reform in this weeks installment of Marcos Constituent Mailbox video series (https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=RteG2ceXtk8). In the video, Rubio outlines various disconcerting facts about the increasingly complicated tax code and the unnecessary burdens it places on taxpayers: the average taxpayer to le their taxes, including record keeping, planning, as well as lling out forms. spent 6.1 billion hours and $168 billion complying with all their tax ling requirements. regulations now totals more than 73,000 pages, as opposed to 400 pages when it was created in 1913. trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state and local taxes this year. federal, state and local taxes. Rubio then reads a constituent letter from Frank in Ft. Myers and responds to his call for a simpler tax code that is not used as an instrument of wealth redistribution or social engineering. In response, Rubio said, Tax reform is critical. And its not just critical to take the hassle out of our lives. Its critical for the economic future of our country. Our economy is stagnant. Its not growing fast enough. Its not creating enough jobs. And by the way, about 40% of the jobs that it is creating pays $16 an hour or less. One of the things holding back our economy is a broken tax code. We have a tax code, for example, that punishes companies for investing their prots back into their businesses, to hire more people, to give their workers raises, to expand their operations. We have a tax code that actually encourages our employers to take their business overseas. ose are some of the things we have to x as well, Rubio continued. So I agree with you wholeheartedly, and thats why I hope this November well have new leadership here in Washington that will move on this important item. Rubio encourages constituents to continue writing letters and sharing their concerns via his ocial website, rubio. senate.gov.Rubio Addresses Constituent Concerns About Broken, Complicated Tax Code

McCallums best estimate of how many police ocers will be working trac and providing a police presence on the street is about 70-80, more than at last years Crab Fest when about 50 to 55 ocers were present. e festival in East Williston takes place along County Road 318 in predominantly black neighborhoods. Vendors set up on private property along the highway and sell food and drinks. Music plays. Churches benet from the festival. Many use it as a fundraiser. ere is no one organizer. Word spreads and people show up. County Road 318 will be closed at 3 p.m. or before, depending on pedestrian and vehicle trac congestion and safety concerns. Residents of Williston who have home addresses on CR 318 should be prepared to show a photo ID with a current address. All through trac will be re-routed at NE 212 Court and NE 35th St. to U.S. Alternate 27. e sheris oce is encouraging anyone that is not attending the event to avoid the area by using alternate routes. e murder trial of Devonte Ocasio, the man accused in the April 27 Crab Fest killing of festival goer Barry Barney, has been postponed. Ocasio is accused of gunning down Barney and shooting ve others in a brief but deadly hail of gunre in the heavy Crab Fest crowd. Ocasio was tried for murder in November of 2013, but Judge Stanley Gris declared a mistrial when the defense turned up evidence it had not investigated. Shortly thereafter, Ocasios attorney resigned and had to be replaced. Part of the delay involves Ocasios new attorneys being brought up to speed on the evidence against their client. Sheris Lt. Scott Tummond said the heavier law enforcement present at this years Crab Fest is an eort to prevent a repeat of the violence that occurred a year earlier. We have ve families that were touched by the shootings, and they are still dealing with the tragedy, Tummond said. Tummond added that anything can happen at Crab Fest when that many people gather in one location. McCallum estimates 10,000 to 12,000 people attended last years festival. He said the crowd may be 40 percent bigger this year. But then again, theres no way to predict. It never proves to disappoint, said Tummond. G.A.B. LLC own 2.4 acres of land that was going to be used for the Hip Hop concert. e county got wind of the concert and led for a temporary injunction to halt it. e property owners have provided the county with an adavit signed by its tenant agreeing to never conduct music events on the property without a permit. ey provided an adavit signed by the tenant committing not to conduct events on the property. e property was leased for a car wash and detail shop. e county plans to continue seeking a permanent injunction against others named in the lawsuit. e organizers of the concert, Leary Crawford and Norman James, Jr. claimed they were singled out by the county for an injunction. ey claimed a concert had never been halted before by an injunction. County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell responded at a September board meeting last year that the festival was not singled out for special treatment and if organizers had made an attempt to follow the countys rules and guidelines in the Music Festival Ordinance there would have been no problems. Crawford and James last year said they planned to re-le for the correct county permits, but they have yet to do so. ey said they intended to use the concert as a platform to discourage young people in their age group from engaging in drug use or using violence in the street. But they had not mentioned those plans in advance promotions. e lawsuit remains active, but Sigler and her partners are excused from the suit. Sigler said the company has owned the property for 10 years and would never want a Hip Hop concert to take place on the land. She said they would have been liable for anything that happened on the property. We had no idea any of this was going on until months later, she said.County Reaches Agreement with Property Owners in Hip Hop Concert Lawsuit continued from page 1A Chieand May Hire Cleanup Person after Easter Egg Hunt Trashes City Park continued from page 1A private groups and organizations. City Manager Kevin Gay said the overtime is beginning to push the Strickland Park budget into the red. It is the only part of the city budget that is headed for the red. City Commissioner Betty Walker said she heard that the church originally planned to use 1,000 plastic eggs, but a donor heard about the egg hunt and donated 20,000 plastic eggs. If you came out there Sunday you would have thought all of Levy County was out there, Walker said. Trash left behind by the Forward Church wasnt the only problem. City workers also had to haul away boxes and other trash left around the concession stand by the Chieand Area Athletic Association. CAAA President Wayne Weatherford had planned to attend the city commission meeting but canceled due to sickness. Gay said city employees also found the door handle broken o one of the bathrooms. is is the second time the handle has been broken o. Gay said city employees also found that people had parked within inches of the city sewer main cap. e city could have been forced to pay thousands of dollars in damages if the sewer had been collapsed by the weight of a vehicle. Walker suggested the city hire a parttime worker or contractor to clean up after organizations using the park. She is the recreation commissioner. e board instructed Gay to determine if city can aord to hire a part-time worker or contractor. Gay said he had planned to wait until the next city budget to examine the possibility of hiring a part-time garbage cleanup person, but he will look at the budget and try to gure out where to get the money. e city has been operating with an extremely lean budget for years. It was also learned during the meeting that the Shands Caire ambulance helicopter had been summoned to the Easter Egg hunt, but someone apparently canceled the call before the helicopter arrived. e city is not sure who cancelled the ight. Gay said the city doesnt want to charge for daily use of the park, but because these larger events use a lot of electricity and water, the city needs to recoup some of its costs. Larger groups also need liability insurance for their events. All groups and organizations have to clean up after themselves. Deputy Fire Chief Gene Stockman said the organizers of special events also need to coordinate with Chieand police and Chieand Fire Rescue to ensure the safety of the public and to ensure children arent accidentally hit by a vehicle. e city relies on an honor system for people to notify the city in advance of events.

She needs to raise $3,000 to cover travel and lodging expenses at the competition. Its going to be like completely awesome, she said. Makayla, daughter of Jo and Steven Sample, doesnt hunt with guns. She competes with guns. Its her favorite sport. Ive always shot with my dad. We found the club and started there, she said. Makayla went to national competition two years ago and nished 23rd in the nation. Her goal is to compete in the Olympics one day. She thinks Olympic shooting competitions are real cool. She probably would have scored higher in state competition if her semi-automatic .22 caliber rie hadnt jammed. She ejected the bad shell and shot one more time.

Bronson left 8 runners stranded on base. Timmy Gibson pitched 2 innings and got one strikeout, Ty Barber 2 1/3 innings and got two strikeouts and Dees nished in relief with two strikeouts. Weve had spurts this season where weve had timely hitting. We didnt tonight, said Coach Allen Strickland. We got a chance to see some things that were positive. Our relief pitchers did a better job. e game as far as standings meant nothing for the district tournament that begins on Monday in Trenton. Barber continues to lead the team with the highest batting average at .467. Gibson is a close second at .462 and Beauchamp is batting .436, Dees .404, Brock Brower .370, Landon Smith .327, P.J.

Before he was even nished asking, I was already setting about to put a halt to that nonsense. If he was thinking Id endorse such a plan in front of his wife, he was sadly mistaken. Before he could safely drag her o beyond earshot Id barraged them with at least a half dozen tales of the near death encounters Id experienced as a kid on my little Honda XR-75. e one that nally caused her to gasp and give him the look was the story of the time I was scooting along on a loose Mississippi gravel road with my little brother Heath on back. e following re-telling brings shivers up my spine too: Heath had been whining that morning about having to wear his head protection. He complained he looked goofy in my old football helmetsaid the mouthpiece tasted funny. ( Maybe Id called him hard-headed so long he was starting to believe it. ) Anyway, I had to end up agreeing to wear my helmet too before hed hush. Within minutes we were cruising miles from home; way too far out really, considering wed been told to stay in the yard. Its not like we had any place to be either. Of course, we had that little engine wound out on the o chance we might need to get there quick. ( People had always told us we were headed nowhere fast. ) Despite the squirrelly handling the motorcycle was exhibiting on the fresh gravel, we couldnt bring ourselves to slow down. We loved to feel the wind on our faces, even if we were collecting more bugs in our teeth than a voracious Venus y-trap on vacation in the Everglades. Everything was peachy, at least until we rolled up on that sudden ninety degree turn! I screamed, and stomped the brake. e bike screamed, and began to hydroplane. Heath screamed, and squeezed my breakfast clear back up to my tonsils. I fought a power slide for the next forty or fty feet, and then made the executive decision to lay it over. Our only alternative was to hit the oncoming ditch at full speed. We left the road sideways, and both tires slammed into the far bank at the same time. e resulting jolt catapulted us like wed been shot out of a giant slingshot. Im not sure how far we actually ew, but I reckon it probably rivaled some of the previous man-ight records of the day. We came down with a heavy plop in a muddy soybean eld, side by side, face down. When I came to, I was spitting mud and spitting mad. I looked at Heath and my rst thought was, Why is that dummy wearing his chin strap across his forehead? Heath had this big blank stare on his face like he was in shock. I followed his gaze and found we were both staring right into the business end of a rusty old plow. Its razor sharp disks mere inches from our foreheads. Helmets or not, another foot and our hard heads wouldve been sliced thinner than a honey baked ham! But anyway I believe if some of youd take the time you might see yourself in this story. Maybe youve rejected the rm foundation of Gods Word and built your life on loose gravel? Now you nd yourself far from home and headed nowhere fast. Your life is hydroplaning out of control. Stop being so hard-headed! Get o that squirrelly path before you run into the sudden 90 degree turn of judgment and reap what youve been sowing. Turn to the Lord. He is merciful and will show you a better way. ( I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. Psalms 40:1-2 NLT) Take some advice from a guy whos seen the blades of the reaper up close. Put on the helmet of Gods salvation oered through His son Jesus Christ. Now before its too late.
