Williston Police Sgt. James Bond said the Florida Highway Patrol rst tried to stop the men for a trac violation on CR 318 about a half mile away from the event. ey were driving toward Crab Fest. Williston police were part of security. An FHP spokesman said the trac violation wasnt a felony and FHPs rules prevented the ocer from pursuing the vehicle. e pursuit was turned over to the Marion County Sheris Oce, which was part of the Crab Fest highway security. A Marion County deputy said the car was traveling at more than 100 miles per hour during the chase. e deputy saw the suspects car pass a vehicle at 90 miles per hour, then stop in the 12200 block of CR 318 near the location of a second Marion County deputy waiting to assist with pursuit. e driver, later identied as Antwan Bell, 26, exited the car and ran southeast through a horse eld.

Beating of Juvenile Girl May Close Power Lines to Mud BoggingBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBig mud truck owners who love to play and compete in the area known as the Power Lines north of Bronson will lose access to the area in the near future in the wake of a juvenile girl being severely beaten on the property on April 7. Levy County Sheris Lt. Scott Tummond said the sheris oce is contacting private property owners in the area to gain their cooperation in posting the properties as no trespassing areas. When landowners agree to bar future mud bogging in the area, Tummond said the sheris oce will rst issue warnings if the big trucks return to the area. Repeat oenders will be arrested for returning to the property. Several property owners have expressed that they dont want those activities out there, Tummond said. A mud bog competition had been planned on the property in late April but Tummond said the event never took place. Patricia Lynn Miller, 18, of Morriston has been released from jail on a reduced bond. She is charged with felony battery on a juvenile. She was originally held on $100,000 bond but requested a bond reduction hearing. Circuit Judge William Davis reduced bond to $10,000. e juvenile victim suered numerous injuries including a swollen right eye, numerous contusions to the back of the head and side of the face, scratches and cuts on her legs and a broken nose resulting from By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand Mayor Teal Pomeroy weathered a verbal assault Monday night when he was the lone city commissioner to vote against a motion requesting a joint workshop with the county commission to discuss an Advanced Life Support truck for the city. When asked to explain his vote, Pomeroy said he supports the idea of having an ALS non-transport truck in Chieand but he has unanswered questions about the issue. He would not say if he would attend the joint workshop. He said it would depend on the day and what time the workshop was held. Assistant Fire Chief A.D. Goodman and Deputy Chief Gene Stockman pressed Pomeroy to explain his answer. Stockman warned that if Pomeroy was the person critically ill and waiting for an ambulance he would want paramedic reghters with ALS Chieand Mayor Comes Under Fire for Vote on Joint ALS Workshop By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell says it may take several joint workshops between his board and the Chieand City Commission to answer all questions the city and county might have about adding a city Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. I bet Chief (David) Knowles has 50 questions for the city and the city has 50 questions for Chief Knowles, Bell said. Bell said the county already operates two roving Silverado pickups that have ALS equipment and serve as ALS non-transport trucks for the entire county. Neither is stationed in Chieand. e city says it wants an ALS unit permanently stationed in Chieand to serve city residents and perhaps residents in the immediate area around the city with ALS service before the ambulance arrives. One of the many questions from the county concerns how the city ALS unit would intersect with county Emergency Medical Services if the city operated under the countys medical director. Bell said the Department of Public Safety believes if the citys ALS unit is part of the countys ambulance service the unit could be restaged to other parts of the county if need be. e city wants to operate under the county medical director at Shands Hospital and use the countys medical protocols to treat patients before the ambulance arrives. e city also wants to be able to stock its ALS non-transport unit Meth Lab Busted in Chieand; Cookers ArrestedTwo Chieand residents were arrested by the Levy County Sheris Oce Monday on charges of operating an active methamphetamine lab in their home.

3A Crab-Fest 2014 Brings Loud Music, Good Food, Lots of Visitors and Law Enforcement continued from page 1AIts cultural. Its many layered, Jones said. It is people gathering, eating and enjoying conversation. One of the pastors brings his mother in. Shes in her 90s just to people watch. ere was plenty to observe at Crab Fest 2014. People drove from cities throughout the state to take part in the festival despite the murder last year that gave Crab Fest a bad name. e crowd size was down this year for reasons unknown. McCallum stationed ocers along the festival route and there were also four or ve sheris cars parked near the entrance to Crab Fest at the intersection of CR 318 and U.S. 27A. Roving deputies drove their cars along the parade route. Parking wasnt allowed along CR 318 this year to give people more room to walk on the street after it was closed to trac in the evening hours. e Williston Police Department worked the festival, including reserves. e Florida Highway Patrol was present. e Levy County Department of Public Safety was prepared to respond to any emergency. e sheris oce set up a triage center at G&J Auto Body within a stones throw of CR 318 for any medical emergencies. e Dixie County Sheris Oce brought its command center to Williston Elementary School. All public safety communications were channeled through the command center. Two helicopters were stationed there. One helicopter would have been available to airlift any sick or injured person to a hospital. Nothing happened of a violent nature. e crowds were much smaller than expected. Everything went fairly well, said Sheri Bobby McCallum. e high prole of law enforcement wasnt a surprise to many at Crab Fest. e Ministerial Faith Alliance had communicated with community members in advance to explain why law enforcement would be present in numbers. To the community, we had to clarify why there was so much law enforcement and why it is okay, Jones said. Jones said black communities in Florida have a history of hosting spring homecoming festivals. Archer has its own spring festival. Crab Fest started 30 years ago as one of those homecomings. is is Willistons homecoming, he said. He added that the concept of black communities gathering to celebrate homecomings has its roots in their African traditions. Jones said it may be dicult for outsiders looking in to understand how Crab Fest works, but many of the participants view it as a way of reuniting families and communities in festive atmosphere. is is rooted in African traditions, to go from community to community, he said. is is part of who we are and how we connect from community to community. At the Crab Fest, a class reunion may take place on one block, a family union next door and a church event at another location. Hip Hop music, gospel music and rap music can be heard in the same block. People mingle and talk. ey sit in lawn chairs and dine on food purchased from local vendors. Along County Road 318, stereo speakers blasted music. Cars, trucks and motorcycles drove past hundreds of people seated and standing along County Road 318. Food stands were everywhere in front yards. Churches sold food under tents on lawns. Private individuals and small businesses did the same. Most people seemed to be in good spirits. e county has talked about trying to force Crab Fest organizers to obtain an events permit like other festivals, but since there is no one organizer for the event, the idea hasnt taken root. But the idea hasnt dissipated. Large festivals often require the presence of law enforcement for trac control and public safety; require sanitary facilities and require medical personnel in case people are injured or fall ill. It comes with a cost to the taxpayers. On the other hand, Crab Fest is like a multitude of events wrapped into one. ere is no central organizing committee and no president. It seems that every highway-front residence along CR 318 from the BP Station to New Hope Baptist Church had a tent set up to sell food or gifts or play music. Jones is hoping Crab Fest can regain its reputation from the past as being a magnet for good times and fellowship. e murder last year was the rst fatality in 30 years, he noted. e year before, the sheris oce said, someone red several shots in the area of the closed BP Station. e perpetrator was never found. No one was injured. e shooting last year killed one man and injured four others. Jones said he has heard from Devonte Ocasio, the man charged in the killing. Ocasio is being held at the Levy County Jail. Jones said ministers write to jail inmates all the time. He said he cant discuss what Ocasio said or wrote to him. Im sure he regrets what he did, Jones said. As for the future of the festival, Jones plans to build his church along the festival route on CR 318. He gave the Journal an interview at the future church site as music blared nearby. A portable playground of equipment had been set up at the back of the future church site. Kids could be seen playing while the adults had fun nearby. Id like to Google Crab Fest Williston some day and not get negative information, Jones said. Pastor Johnny Jones, a Williston minister, stands along County Road 318 on property where he plans to build a church. He has a positive outlook about Crab Fest and is hopeful it will continue to be a popular destination in the future. By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere Levy County Sheris Oce has blocked o one end of the main highway into Fowlers Blu because of ooding on the Suwannee River. Lt. Scott Tummond said eight inches of standing water covers NW 46th Lane. Driving over the road can cause waves that damage homes. Tummond said the latest reports he has received indicate the river will rise several more inches. Vehicular trac is restricted to residents living along the submerged road. A message board will be placed at the intersection of NW 40th Lane and County Road 347 alerting drivers to the ooded road. Residents are asked to avoid the area and not to risk driving on the ooded street. We dont want sightseeing going on down there because the waves they generate could damage homes, Tummond said. He added that it takes only 3 inches of water to displace a car. Whats more, drivers in cars and trucks traveling on the ooded road cant see the ditches, driveways or lawns. ey are driving blind. e Suwannee River covers about 95 percent of Clay Landing west of Chieand. e boat ramp is no longer visible. Tummond said all boat ramps on the Suwannee River remain closed. All other boat ramps remain open. Boat trac on the river is practically non-existent. e ooded river is full of oating debris including logs and oating limbs. Idle speed zones are being enforced on portions of the river to avoid damage to homes and property along the river bank. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is enforcing idle speed zones and patrolling the river to protect homes vacated by residents that ed the ooding. Tummond said the sheris oce is currently stepping up land patrols in ooded areas but will start to augment FWC boat patrols. However, FWC has it under control, he said. e sheris oce advises residents who want additional information to contact the Department of Emergency Management at 352/486-5212. e phone will be answered during business hours. No one answers after 5 p.m.Suwannee River Floods Fowlers Blu Road and Public Boat RampsTwo Men Headed for Crab Fest Arrested on Gun and Drug Charges continued from page 1Adeputies found a .38 caliber derringer loaded with two live rounds. Also found in the car was a clear baggie containing a mixture of tobacco and marijuana. e baggie was in left on the drivers seat. Bell was treated for injuries to his arm as a result of the K-9 grabbing him. Deputies asked why he was traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour on CR 318. He said he was trying to get away from the police in Williston. He said he didnt stop when a Marion County ocer turned on his emergency lights because he knew he was a habitual trac oender in possession of crack cocaine. Bell told deputies he intended to mix the crack cocaine with a marijuana blunt, a hand rolled cigarette, and smoke it, which is known as geeking, according to the Marion County arrest report. A computer check revealed his license had been revoked for 60 months on Dec. 31, 2012 for being a habitual trac violator. e computer check also conrmed he was a convicted felon multiple times, most recently on Aug. 4, 2012 for grand theft. Bell rst told deputies he didnt know the guns were in the vehicle, but changed his story. He said he should get charged with one of the guns and Gardner should be charged with possession of the other. After arriving at the Marion County Jail, Gardner was asked about the two guns found in the car. At rst he said he didnt know much about them, but ocers then told him what Bell had said about the guns. When Bell walked into the jail booking room, Bell told Gardner, Yea man, you take that charge, Im a felon. Gardner became agitated about Bells statement attempting to implicate him on the gun charge. Gardner said about a week ago he and Bell were together and Bell showed him the two guns. He described the guns as a .22 caliber and the other with a silver double barrel. He wasnt certain about the caliber of the second gun. Bell was arrested on charges of eeing or eluding a police ocer and failing to obey an order, driving with a suspended license, being a habitual trac oender, possession of a weapon or ammunition by a convicted felon, resisting an ocer without violence, second degree weapon oense, and felony possession of a weapon and possession of crack cocaine. Gardner was arrested on a charge of felony marijuana possession. Naked Man Reports Being Robbed In Fanning Springsree people have been arrested for a bizarre robbery on April 25 that started with a naked Hispanic man walking into the Waco 6 convenience store in Fanning Springs and asking for help. With the help of interpreters, Levy County Sheris Oce investigators discovered the man had been the victim of a robbery and that the perpetrators had taken his clothing and his wallet with $1,000 cash. e investigation revealed the three suspects planned the robbery earlier in the evening. eir plan was for the two women involved in the robbery to nd a Hispanic man, lure him to a home and a bedroom, promise him sexual acts and when he disrobed, a man waiting in an adjacent room would enter with a machete and take his clothing. e plan was executed, except for one aw. e Hispanic man knew the women involved. With the assistance of an interpreter, investigators were able to quickly locate and arrest all three suspects. Arrested for the robbery were Richard Hall, 54, a registered sex oender, Billie Joe Grant, 31, and Sylvia Chisolm, 30. Grant was wanted on unrelated charges in Gilchrist County. e robbery charge for her was forwarded to the State Attorneys oce and a warrant is pending. Richard Hall Billie Joe Grant Sylvia Chisolm
4A Michele MalkinCreators Syndicatee Obama administration doesnt have watchdogs. It has whitewash puppies. e presidents Chicago bullies have defanged true advocates for integrity in government in D.C. from day one. So the latest report by the Senate Homeland Security and Government Operations Committee on corruptocrat Charles K. Edwards, the former Department of Homeland Security inspector general, isnt a revelation. Its conrmation. Investigators found that Edwards compromised the independence of his oce by socializing and sucking up to senior DHS ocials. ere are many blessings to be thankful for this year, the sycophantic Edwards wrote to the DHS acting counsel on anksgiving 2011, but one of the best is having a friend like you. Geez, get them a room. Whistleblowers outlined how Edwards cozied up to multiple DHS execs and legal staers, who directed him to alter reports on immigration enforcement, TSA screening and the Secret Services dalliances with prostitutes in Argentina. Edwards failed to obtain independent legal analysis of ethics issues. e IG counsel was cut out of the loop. Edwards ordered reports to be doctored or delayed. He failed to recuse himself from audits and inspections that had conicts of interest related to his wifes employment. e probe among DHS employees also discovered that Edwards apparent retaliatory actions against sta dissenters contributed to an oce environment characterized by low morale, fear and general dissatisfaction with Mr. Edwards leadership. e Obama White House was quite happy, however. e administration installed this 20-year career bureaucrat as acting DOJ senior watchdog despite the fact that he had zero experience conducting audits, investigations and inspections -the three fundamental duties of an inspector general. ey got exactly what they needed: A do-nothing, know-nothing, toothless lackey. Edwards main non-accomplishment was carrying water for the Obama corruptocracy as he dithered on the internal investigation of Alejandro Mayorkas, who was conrmed late last year as the No. 2 ocial at Homeland Security. As Ive previously reported, veteran internal whistleblowers told Capitol Hill about fraud, reckless rubber-stamping and lax enforcement under Mayorkas tenure as head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Put on your shocked faces: e DOJs IG probe into Mayorkas role on fast-tracking visas for wealthy Chinese investors on behalf of GreenTech -the crony company with ties to Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAulie and Hillary Clintons other brother, Anthony -has yet to be completed after more than a year. Former DHS crook-in-chief Janet Napolitano continues to deny any wrongdoing. Conveniently, Napolitanos longtime aide and crony pal Suzanne Barr, former chief of sta to former DHS Immigration and Customs Enforcement head John Morton, left oce just after whistleblower allegations about Barrs lewd conduct and sexual harassment of underlings surfaced. Guess who was in charge as the scandal broke open? Whitewash puppy Charles K. Edwards. As always, the sh rots from the head down. Remember: Team Hope and Change sacked former Amtrak Inspector General Fred Weiderhold and former Americorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin for exposing nancial improprieties and calling out Obama ocials interference with their probes. And the current kennel of Obama cover-up enablers masquerading as watchdogs includes Interior Department acting IG Mary Kendall. She remains under investigation for allegations that she potentially helped White House ocials cover up their doctoring of scientic documents that led to the fraudulent, job-killing drilling moratorium of 2010. en there was former DOJ acting inspector Cynthia Schnedar, a longtime employee and colleague of nowAttorney General Eric Holder, who recklessly released secret Operation Fast and Furious audiotapes to the U.S. Attorneys Oce in Phoenix before reviewing them. She resigned in 2012 to avoid the heat. When the Senate panel called Charles K. Edwards to testify last December about his own hot ethics mess, the White House promptly whisked Edwards out of the job and transferred him to the science and technology division of DOJ. Funny how the most transparent administration in American history loves to play hide and seek with its dirty watchdogs. Heels, the whole lot of them.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COMPolitics Versus Education Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateOf all the cynical frauds of the Obama administration, few are so despicable as sacricing the education of poor and minority children to the interests of the teachers unions. Attorney General Eric Holders attempt to suppress the spread of charter schools in Louisiana was just one of the signs of that cynicism. His nationwide threats of legal action against schools that discipline more black students than he thinks they should are at least as damaging. Charter schools are hated by teachers unions and by much of the educational establishment in general. ey seem to be especially hated when they succeed in educating minority children whom the educational establishment says cannot be educated. Apparently it can be done when you dont have to hire unionized teachers with ironclad tenure, and when you dont have to follow the dogmas in vogue in the educational establishment. Last year, there was an attempt to shut down the American Indian Model Schools in Oakland, California -schools that had been ranked among the top schools in the nation, schools with the top test scores in their district and the fourth highest scores in the entire state of California. e reason given was that the former -repeat, FORMER -head of these schools was accused of nancial irregularities. Since there are courts of law to determine the guilt or innocence of individuals, why should school children be punished by having their schools shut down, immediately and permanently, before any court even held a trial? Fortunately, a court order prevented this planned vindictive closing of this highly successful charter school with minority students. But the attempt shows the animus and the cynical disregard of the education of children who have few other places to get a comparable education. Attorney General Holders threats of legal action against schools where minority students are disciplined more often than he wants are a much more sweeping and damaging blow to the education of poor and minority students across the country. Among the biggest obstacles to educating children in many ghetto schools are disruptive students whose antics, threats and violence can make education virtually impossible. If only 10 percent of the students are this way, that sacrices the education of the other 90 percent. e idea that Eric Holder, or anybody else, can sit in Washington and determine how many disciplinary actions against individual students are warranted or unwarranted in schools across the length and breadth of this country would be laughable if it were not so tragic. Relying on racial statistics tells you nothing, unless you believe that black male students cannot possibly be more disruptive than Asian female students, or that students in crimeridden neighborhoods cannot possibly require disciplinary actions more often than children in the most staid, middle-class neighborhoods. Attorney General Holder is not fool enough to believe either of those things. Why then is he pursuing this numbers game? e most obvious answer is politics. Anything that promotes a sense of grievance from charges of racial discrimination oers hope of energizing the black vote to turn out to vote for Democrats, which is especially needed when support from other voters is weakening in the wake of Obama administration scandals and ascoes. Eric Holders other big racial crusade, against requiring identication for voting, is the same political game. And it is carried out with the same cynical promotion of fears, with orchestrated hysteria from other Democrats -as if having to show identication to vote is like a revival of the Ku Klux Klan. Blacks, whites and everybody else can be asked for identication these days, whether cashing a check or using a credit card at a local store or going to an airport -or even getting into some political meetings called to protest voter ID laws.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Obamas Dirty WatchdogsApril 22, 2014, Williston Atheists and American Atheists, Inc. heard the Board of County Commission deny our appeal for the place of the atheist monument in the Forum next to the Courthouse. Reasons for the nal denial same as the rst time especially the fact that our monument does not contain full documents of chosen statements. e application led by Tri-County Pregnancy Center states that the monument currently in place was taken from Exodus 20 of the King James Bible note taken from and as any intelligent person might ascertain that means that they DID NOT use the whole of Exodus 20 a fact pointed out and reinforced by a print out of Exodus 20 which contains 26 not 10 commandments and of the 10 used, even those were NOT inscribed on that monument in full. But that was totally ignored giving them a privilege which was then not accorded to Williston Atheists for the documents we chose to have inscribed which were taken from letters and documents. Just Christians as usual using their privilege without regard to others opinions. e Board could not determine American Atheists was a legal organization in New Jersey as Mr. Moody stated he did not feel there were funds available to pay for a copy of the incorporation documents $6.25. Not much when Levy County and the citizens of Bronson might face a legal proceeding of up a year or more which will be expensive. Penny wise, pound foolish decision, Mr. Moody? John Porgal, as Regional Director for American Atheists, requested that the denial be delayed for our attorney to respond since the information informing the attorney was sent April 17, 2014 with the next three days being a holiday so nothing could be done until following week. Mr. Porgal was informed that the delay could not be granted because it would mean that the next hearing would not be until after expiration of the 45 day period of time allowed for the decision. Convenient? It could have been announced on April 8th but our attorney could le a reply which might have changed the decision? But couldnt allow that because the timing of the scheduled denial was a nely orchestrated date chosen to disallow for that delay. e decision was decided on January 13, 2014 the day the application was led and ATHEIST was seen. e announcement on January 21, 2014: the denial on Feb 4, 2014 and the last denial were just motions required to make their nal decision appear legal and appease voting public for the elections. Now they can say, we beat back those atheists so you can vote us back in. If the Boards hoping this would is the last time they see Williston Atheists be assured nothing could be further from the truth. Were the proverbial bad penny, guaranteed to show up again at the most inopportune times so dont count us out we are not down for the count. Frances J.

Pomeroy repeated that he was not opposed to ALS. I reiterate Im in favor of ALS for the City of Chieand, but I have questions, Pomeroy said. He said much of his concerns relate to the legalities of working under the countys EMS director. Fire Chief James Harris said two people with expertise in emergency medical services should be invited to the joint workshop with county commissioners. He suggested inviting Rickey Stone, director of the Florida Bureau of Medical Service and Dr. Christine Van Dillen, medical director for Levy Countys Emergency Medical Services. She is a Shands Hospital physician. Commissioner Teresa Barron said the two people Harris mentioned would be asked to attend the joint workshop of the county commission and city commission. e county commission has yet to approve the workshop. e county was awaiting a formal request from the city. Chieand currently operates as a Basic Life Support service. Chieand reghters often arrive at the scene of medical emergencies and vehicle crashes well in advance of ambulances. Records from Levy County Sheris Oce dispatch show Chieand reghters beat ambulances to the scene by a total of 3 hours, 47 minutes in March. Chieand Fire Rescue said it could save more lives if its paramedic reghters were licensed to use ALS equipment, procedures and drugs on patients before the ambulance arrives on the scene. Fire rescue ocers say thats why they want the ALS non-transport truck. e county is concerned that Chieand is posturing to get more money from the county commission. Chieand ocials say thats not true. ey say the sole aim of the city is to save lives and nothing more. Chief James Harris told commissioners Monday night he was not asking for additional funding for ALS. City Manager Kevin Gay told commissioners that he would ask Chieand Rotary Club this week to fund the purchase of ALS equipment for the truck. Gay said if the club declines, he knows two local residents willing to pay for the ALS equipment. Two inaccurate statements by county ocials have clouded the ALS issue. During Mondays board meeting, resident Donald Goolsby said he was told Chieand had borrowed $35,000 for the re department payroll. He wondered if that was true. He said a county commissioner had enlightened him with information that obviously wasnt correct. City sta said there was absolutely no truth to the statement that the city had borrowed money for the re department. City Manager Kevin Gay said the city balanced its budget in September using the additional funding that came from an increase in property taxes. is is all about a power struggle in case everyone doesnt know that, Goolsby said. e other misstatement came from County Coordinator Freddie Moody last week when he told businessman Skipper Henderson the city had never formally requested an ALS non-transport truck. He apologized for giving Henderson bad information. In reality the city commission approved an Aug. 27, 2013 re department budget request to the county commission asking for $35,000 of additional funding and an ALS nontransport truck. Six days later the county commission placed the requests for additional re funding for an ALS truck on the Sept. 3 agenda. e county commission rejected both requests. I must apologize for giving you incorrect information sir, Moody said in a Friday afternoon email to Henderson. I told you a request for the ALS-non-transport truck had not been ocially requested. ere was an agenda item by the City of Chieand back on Sept. 3, 2013 where Teresa Barron, James Harris and Gene Stockman appeared before the BoCC and requested several items including an annual Fee-ForService Contract increase, a Certicate of Need for ALS non-transport vehicle, an additional ambulance stationed in Chieand and that our payments to them for coverage outside the City be paid in advance rather than after services are provided. All the requests were rejected, but the board did approve a motion by Commissioner John Meeks to give Chieand an additional 6 percent increase over their annual $199,000 allocation of county re funding. e total increase came to $12,000. Henderson thanked Moody for the update. He said he had already found out about the letter. Now I guess Commissioner (Ryan) Bell needs to prepare on his response when asked about that letter, Henderson responded in a replay email. Commissioner Ryan Bell commented at a Chieand City Commission ALS workshop on April 22 that Chieand had never made a formal request in writing for an ALS unit. He said the city would have to send a request endorsed by the city commission and signed by the mayor. He was incorrect.Chieand Mayor Comes Under Fire for Vote on Joint ALS Workshop continued from page 1A with ALS drugs. When it treats a patient at the scene, it would transfer authority for the patient to the county ambulance paramedic and give the county a written list of the medicines used to treat the patient. Under Fire Chief James Harriss plan, the county would reimburse the city for those medicines. But the devil is in the details. Exactly how everything would work is still an open question, or series of questions. e city indicated Monday night that its liability insurer said there would not be additional costs associated with adding an ALS unit. City Fire Chief James Harris said the ALS unit wont cost the city or the county additional dollars. e county is concerned that the city may be posturing for an ALS unit to get more county dollars. e city says that isnt true. Bells request that the city make a formal request for a joint workshop with the county commission was honored at Mondays city commission meeting. Bell wanted the city commission to approve the letter and Mayor Teal Pomeroy to sign it. e city commission approved the letter 4-1 with Pomeroy dissenting. Bell said he would like to see all ve county commissioners and all ve city commissioners at the joint workshop, whenever it is held. He doubts the two boards can get much done if only a couple of commissioners show up on each side. e county commission has yet to formally approve the joint workshop.County Chairman Says Several Workshops May Be Needed continued from page 1A

Donna Lovvorn, Williston Elementary School media specialist, smiles when she thinks of how the Sunshine State Young Readers Award program has grown over the years. Twenty-seven Wildcats participated in the program this year. Two 5th graders, Kylie Campbell and Kaia Monette read all 15 nominated books! said Lovvorn. ey received a $15 gift certicate to spend at the recent Scholastic book fair. Two more 5th graders, Carter Boyd and Christian Vradenburgh, read 10 and 12, respectively. I know the ice cream sundae party [scheduled for May] might have something to do with their enthusiasm, chuckled Lovvorn, but these books are selected carefully and usually are very good books for young people in this age range. To be eligible to vote, a student had to have read at least three of the books. Voting occurred in the schools media center in a special private booth the week of April 21st. Started in 1984 and co-sponsored by the Florida Association for Media in Education and the state Department of Education, this reading motivation program for students in grades 3-8 is designed to entice students to read high interest, contemporary literature for personal enjoyment. e long term goal of the program is to nurture lifelong readers who will continue to read for information needs and personal pleasure. To qualify for consideration, the text must be ction, written by an author who lives in North America, be appropriate for students from all around Florida in grades 3 to 5 and/or 6 to 8 and have a copyright date of 2010 or later. e 15 books nominated for 2013-2014 for 3rd through 5th grades were Katherine Applegates One and Only Ivan; Mousenet by Prudence Breitrose; Floors by Patrick Carman; e Year of the Book by Andrea Cheng; omas and the Dragon Queen by Shutta Crum; Lisa Gras Double Dog Dare; Katie Kellys Melonhead; Cynthia Lords Touch Blue; Waiting for the Magic by Patricia MacLachlan; e Candymakers by Wendy Mass; e Five Lives of Our Cat Zook by Joanne Rocklin; Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood; e Wish Stealers by Tracey Trivas; and Janitors by Tyler Whitesides. Masss e Candyman received the most votes. e SSYRA winner will be announced in May after all participating Florida elementary and middle schools have voted. Six books were not selected as favorites by our students, said Lovvorn. Its interesting to see what hooks our kidswhat makes them want to read a particular bookmay be the topic the cover catches their eye, she added. ats the beauty of reading. eres something for everyone! Who are those 27 go-getters? ree 3rd graders: Christopher Scott, Patricia Martinez and Libby Hagan; four 4th graders: Joseph Caccavone, Conner Kline, Krystianna Knapp and Hannah Piatt.

While walking to the truck the victim said she was pushed. When she tried to run away she was attacked. Reports said the victim was punched in the face and thrown to the ground. Miller began punching her. Her hair was pulled and she was punched in the face and back of the head numerous times. While on the ground she was kneed in the face causing her nose to break. e victim blacked out from the blow. An unknown person pulled the attackers o her and managed to get the victim to safety. Tummond said investigators interviewed a second suspect in the case but decided not to le charges. e second person wasnt named in the arrest report. Tummond said he could release the name, but she is a witness in the case and he is concerned about releasing her name. She is identied in the report only as Heather. Miller told investigators she punched the victim in the mouth and grabbed her by the hair before slinging her in the water. She said people began yelling at her that the victim was coming out of the water and walking in her direction. Miller told investigators she grabbed the victim by the hair and threw her down and began punching her again in the head and face, the arrest report said. Miller said she kneed the victim in the face twice and she blacked out. Someone pulled her o when she started to punch the victim again. Miller turned 18 on March 11. e age of the victim wasnt identied in the arrest report but she was a teenager. Tummond said the Power lines is located on private property and has been a favorite spot for mud boggers for years, but he said younger people are using the area now and alcohol is being consumed, often by underage persons. e underage drinking is becoming a problem. People have been going out there for years. Weve investigated incidents in the past, but it appears the people going out there are younger. Violence has increased. Were seeing repeats of underage drinking, Tummond said. He added that its just a matter of time before something else happens. e sheris oce understands that its not going to take long before theres more violence and thats not what we want. Tummond said he read Facebook comments that younger people are using the Power Lines and ruining it for everyone else. Since these young kids began showing up its spoiled for all, he said.Obus, Catius opubliBeating of Juvenile Girl May Close Power Lines to Mud Bogging continued from page 1A

By Terry Witt Senior Staff Writere Wild Hog Canoe Race Saturday was one of the most successful in the races 30-year history with 103 canoes and kayaks participating. Longtime ocials with the race said the record was 120 participants back in the days when only canoes raced. Keith Maynard, who headed the fundraiser for the Levy Association of Retarded Citizens, said the goal is to break the record next year. Two years ago the race drew 49 competitors. Last year 72 participated. is year 103 were churning down the 15-mile course. LARC Executive Director Betty Walker said the race exceeded expectations. We were shooting for 100 and we got 103. We had a good crowd. It was more like a family reunion, she said. Maynard said the race generated about $12,000 last year, but he said the numbers should be higher this time around and may reach $16,000. He said there were 50-60 sponsors. LARC uses the money for daily operations. e Florida Legislature has cut funding for ARCs around the state for many years, limiting how many people can receive services. Walker said there is a long waiting list for LARC in Otter Creek. Walker said a 2 percent increase in state funding is projected this year. Water levels in the Waccasassa River were higher than in recent years, which improved racing times. John Edwards, the fastest lone racer for many years, clocked in at 1 hour, 38 minutes and 45 seconds, the best time in the race. Close behind in two-man canoes were Gulf Hammock natives Frank Couch and Daniel Maynard at 1 hour, 48 minutes and 14 seconds and Bryan and Joel Crawford at 1 hour, 50 minutes and 10 seconds. Couch and Maynard won the experienced class. e Crawfords were second. Tad Barber of Gulf Hammock and Levi Smith of California (originally from Gulf Hammock), won the recreation class with a time of 2 hours and 1 second. Smith has one distinction that set him apart from every other racer. He comes back from California to race every year, said Keith Maynard. In the womens class, Sarah Trimm and Katie Quincey were the fastest racers at 2:24:57. ey said there were plenty of boats on the river and at times there were trac jams they had to go around. We literally prayed and quoted scripture the whole way, Katie said. ey didnt stay upright for the entire race. We did tip over one time. I think there are a couple of Gator Aide bottles that were lost, she said. Chuck Harris and his granddaughter Angela Harris of Williston came in 9th in the mixed class with a time of 2:46:08. ey enjoyed the higher water levels. In the past two years it was shallow. We walked most of the way, Chuck Harris said.Annual Wild Hog Canoe Race Draws Large Number of Participants Anna Jane Meeks stands along the Waccasassa River with her Mom and siblings after her father, District 4 county commission candidate Rock Meeks, launched with his partner.

By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronson beat Bell 11-1 in the seminals of the district baseball tournament last week but lost 5-1 to Trenton in the championship game Friday night. e nal standings in the district mean Bronson will advance to the rst round of the state playos for the second straight year. e Eagles got o to a slow start early in the championship and allowed Trenton to take a ve-run lead by the third inning. ere were athletic plays by the Eagles. Ty Barbers diving stop of a line drive to third base and his throw to rst for the out retired the side in the third inning and stopped Trenton with bases loaded. Pitcher Timmy Gibson used his foot to stop a hard hit ball to the pitchers mound in the fourth inning. He gunned the runner at rst for the out. Bronson hasnt been able to return the form it showed when it played Trenton in the rst game of the season. e Eagles led by two runs in the bottom of the seventh in that game, but gave up a hit on the nal out with the count at 3-2 to lose by a run. On Friday, the team was unable to drive in runs when it had runners standing on base in scoring position. Key errors also played a role in the championship loss. Coach Allen Strickland said the team has to put the loss behind them and start over. Bronson would like to beat Lafayette County Tuesday, May 6, in Mayo to advance to the second round and possibly meet Trenton again in Trenton. But rst things rst. Bronson has to beat Lafayette County to advance. e senior-laden team has experienced success this year. Bronson is 14-8. For these guys who started with a record of 4-17 four seasons ago, to come from that and be in the state playos two years in a row; it says something about how far theyve come, Strickland said. eyve changed the way the way fans look at Bronson baseball.

She was my girl, just a big goofy puppy really; aectionate, innocent, and so eager to learn. She just wiggled with such joy that loving her came natural. Eortlessly she placed her trust in me, though I couldnt understand why. Honestly, up until I got Daisy Id never treated animals very good. Id vowed this time would be dierent. After all, my wife and I would be planning a family soon and I so deeply longed to become a better man. I intended to take this opportunity to prepare myself to be a good dad. ats why I was just so devastated the day 6 months later when I buried Daisy beside the 61 hwy. I had come down from the city to spend some time at my grandparents house. Little Daisy was almost grown now and she was enjoying the farm almost as much as I was enjoying the vittles. She quickly took up with my grandpas hound and they ran like there was no tomorrow. Daisy was really stretching out those gangly legs for the rst time. She danced about like shed reached the Promised Land; dropping that Frisbee at my feet time after time. She was so excited I could hardly get her to work with the real training dummy. But hey, I was growing up too, and wisely decided now was not the time to sweat her about it. Before hitting the sack that night I made sure to pen Daisy up proper. My grandpa had lost many dogs on that fast moving highway. I didnt intend for that to happen. ats why I was so surprised the next morning when he woke me up at the crack of dawn with the news. My heart raced, I slipped on my clothes and ran to her pen. Sure enough it was empty. A hole had been burrowed through the wire. Papa pointed towards the highway. Looking out, I saw what I feared was her form about fty yards down, heaped up out in the middle of the road. I wanted to run to her, but on the same hand, I didnt want it to be her. It was a long walk, cars streaming by honking at me and swerving to miss her. What I came upon out there is hardly tting to speak about, and surely not how I want to remember little Daisy. is can be such a brutal world. Papa brought me a shovel and I buried her just o the highway near the railroad tracks. He went back to the house, and for that I am glad, because I didnt take it well. I didnt take it well at all. I didnt want anyone to see me this way, and I wanted some space to grieve as I dug her grave. Maybe youre saying, Its just a dog. You are right. But as I looked at what used to be my innocent trusting little Daisy lying there, I couldnt help but feel like Id failed her. I just broke down, and I am struggling not to do so even now as I write this. But anyway Odds are, there are many of you out there experiencing grief or regret that ventures well out beyond my realm of understanding. I realize most times a strangers sentiments can sound puny in the face of such pain, nonetheless, I hope you will allow me to humbly share with you a phrase I got in a dream the other night. Matters of life and death belong to the Lord. I woke up the next morning repeating it, and great peace came over me. As I meditated on the enormity of that thought, it became so clear that our total dependence must be on the Lord Jesus, at least if we are to get out of this life with any shred of sanity. We must put our complete trust in the Author of our faith, and be still and know He alone can bring us to the nish. We may never understand all the reasons why, but we can trust in the One who does. ( And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose Romans 8:28 KJV) Truly, the only way to get through the valley of all this fallen world dishes out is to know, ou art with me. Jesus loves you. I reckon He and the Father know more than their fair share about suering. If you are struggling with a heavy load, why dont you begin the process of transferring that tremendous weight over unto some shoulders that can bear it. Jesus said( Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 KJV) May the God of all comfort be with you. -Guy Sheeld Church CalendarGood Shepherd Lutheran Spring Yard & Bake Sale May 2,3Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is having their annual Spring Yard Sale and Bake Sale May 2nd and 3rd from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. We have cleaned out our closets, cabinets and garages, and we have baked up some goodies.

In trying to be more ecient and have someone else type up the stories (Bills stories are lovingly written in personal cursive letters) who was not used to his dialect of form, we got the name spelled wrong. Ms. Jean please dont blame Bill. It was my mistake. Poor Bill got questioned on Who is this Joan person? and it was not his fault. I do so apologize Ms. Jean. But I must say this, any wife who can engender such words as written below by her husband must be quite an example for us all and gets a blue ribbon in anyones book. e written tribute is wonderful but the vision of the wife who inspired it must be just awesome. anks Ms. Jean for all you have done all these years to bring Bill to the point of writing this and giving everyone else a good example to follow. And it is so good, we are printing it again with the correct name of the real Ms. Jean. Kathy Hilliard EditorJeanYou know a Wife has to put up with a lot from their husbands so here is a bunch of IOUs that I need to pay o. -IOU for following me from job to job. -IOU for doing without the things you needed, so me and the kids could have things that we wanted and probably didnt need. -IOU for being the family doctor, patching me up when I got banged up and sitting up with the kids when they were sick or hurt. -IOU for being a good manager, stretching the little money we had to keep the bill collectors o our back. -IOU for being such a good cook, making big meals out of little at a time when we had little. -IOU for having to drive old junky cars that barely ran. -IOU for trying to keep me looking nice, washing my dirty jeans that smelled of horses and cow crap. -IOU for buying boots, hats, etc. for me and doing without shoes or clothes you wanted and needed. -IOU for keeping house for a bunch of people who didnt pick up clothes or wipe their feet. -IOU for putting up with dogs in the house, even cows a couple times. -IOU for being the kind, thoughtful person you are, always thinking of others rst. -IOU for all the Christmas and anksgiving dinners you xed, working late at night so everyone could enjoy the holiday. -IOU for looking after Mom and Dad when they needed someone. I will never have enough money to pay these IOUs; all I have is four little words BABY, I LOVE YOU BILL Contact Bill for a CD at 352/493-2766 or write him at: 8151 NW 77 Place, Chieand, 32626.Apologies to Ms. Jean BRONSON SELF STORAGE 500 Commerce St., Bronson, FL 32621 352-486-2121 Cameras, NEW Lighting & 24/7 AccessOUTDOOR STORAGE$25.00 and up Bronson Men Win at KaKuto Submission ChallengeOn April 26 in Atlanta, Georgia, Bronson residents Jason Davis and Eladio Lamberson competed in a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament.
