By Terry WittSenior Staff Writer U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho told a Williston community group Monday he has been talking to a U.S. Senator about the possibility of decriminalizing marijuana at the federal level and allowing states to do what they want about marijuana. Yoho made the statement in a meeting with members of the Unity Family Community Center who requested Yohos presence to get guidance on how he could help them, but the conversation drifted toward the proposal for By Terry WittSenior Staff Writer e Aug. 26 primary and Nov. 4 general election are just around the corner and not many people appear interested in running for the Levy County Commission or Levy County School Board. County candidates will qualify for oce from noon on June 16 to noon on June 20 and those who might be interested in tossing their hat in the ring are rapidly running out of time. Most candidates today choose to pass out petition cards to registered voters and gather the required number of signatures 251 cards for county commission and school board rather than pay the qualifying fee. But the deadline for submitting the required number of signatures to qualify for county oce is Monday, May 19. Incumbent Commissioners Ryan Bell and Chad Johnson had collected nearly all the required signatures on May 12. Johnsons opponent in District 2, Russell Rock Meeks and Bells opponent in District 4, Lily Rooks, submitted the required number of signature cards long before the deadline. e three school board members running for re-election Chieand Girls Capture State Softball ChampionshipElection Is Nearing, but County Candidates ScarceThe 2014 Chieand High School Class 1A state softball champions are pictured.

Also, in the Shifting County Politics article Commissioner Chad Johnson was appointed by former Governor Charlie Crist, not Rick Scott as listed. continued on page 5A continued on page 3A continued on page 5A continued on page 2ASheri Opposes Medical Marijuana Amendment, Supports Law Passed by Legislature By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterSheri Bobby McCallum said Tuesday he opposes a medical marijuana amendment that will go to Florida voters in November, but he and other sheris in Florida support the more restrictive medical marijuana law passed by the Florida Legislature on May 2. e bill approved by Florida lawmakers allows for the use of a limited strain of low-grade marijuana for a specic list of medical purposes, including epilepsy for children and some types of cancer, and will be available through oil or vapor form, but not for smoking. Gov. Rick Scott has indicated he will sign the bill. Five dispensaries in Florida, operated by nurserymen who have been registered in Florida for at least 30 years will be licensed to dispense the drug. e dispensaries must show they can cultivate non-euphoric marijuana and that they have the appropriate nancial stability and can pass a criminal background check. We feel like the bill that was passed in the last day of the Legislature is something everyone can support, McCallum said. By contrast, McCallum said the amendment on the ballot in November is opposed by all 67 sheris in Florida. Its kind of a ruse to open up a whole realm of uses beyond medical use, McCallum said. Its going to create a lot of problems for law enforcement. e proposed constitutional amendment that McCallum opposes says medical use of marijuana By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson is facing an unexpected hurdle in its eorts to build a community center and allow a Verizon cell phone tower to be constructed at James H. Cobb Park. e Florida Department of Environmental Protection has told the town it cant do either project until it develops a vacant piece of property on the west side of the park that was purchased years ago with a Florida Land and Water Conservation Grant. Town Clerk Kelli Brettel, speaking at meeting called for the purpose of discussing the two park projects, suggested the town build a nature walk on the property in question. e subject of undeveloped land surfaced after Verizon ocials told Brettel the town would need to research whether the state DEP had any objections to a cell tower in light of the Florida Recreational Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grants the city had received from DEP over the years to develop Cobb Park. Brettel was surprised to learn about the vacant piece of property. e question now is whether to build a nature trail on the property, which borders a swamp on two sides and is often wet during rainy periods, or build something else on State Agency Throws Roadblock in Front of Bronsons Park Plans By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand City Commissioners Monday voted to approve a letter asking for $217,000 of re funding from the Levy County Commission, a request equal to what the city received last year. e city received $204,000 in funding last year and $12,262 in one time capital purchases for equipment, but this year the city wants the entire amount as a single lump sum for Chieand Fire Rescue. County commissioners havent had time to respond. e letter signed by Mayor Teal Pomeroy said the city wants the lump sum to pay for increasing costs for fuel, maintenance of vehicles, state retirement, worker compensation and life and health insurance for employees. Chiefand Fire Rescues total budget is $440,818, which includes a $210,000 contribution from the citys general fund. Property taxes from city residents make up the general fund. e Town of Otter Creek will continue paying Chieand $5,747 annually for re protection within the city. Chieands request for $217,000 comes against the backdrop of the ongoing controversy over the citys separate request to begin Chieand Requests $217,000 of Fire Funding from County Commissioncontinued on page 2A continued on page 2AChieand Ocials Want Peace Between Angry Parents and Recreation Group By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand City Commissioners Monday tried to make peace between a group of parents who say they have been denied the use of Strickland Park for their baseball teams and the the private group that operates the park for the city. Commissioners voted to purchase a replacement articial pitching mound that was somehow broken at a cost $800 to $1,200 and ordered the warring parties to work out their dierences. Russell Hinote, representing a traveling youth baseball team from Chieand known as e Tribe complained that someone in CAAA intentionally locked up equipment and on one occasion ooded home plate at one of the youth baseball elds to prevent e Tribe from playing at Strickland Park. It was ooded deliberately to prevent us from playing, Hinote said. See Drug Bust and Burglary on page 3ACongressman Ted Yoho speaks to members of the Unity Family Community Center.

Medical use means the acquisition, possession, use, delivery, transfer or administration of marijuana or related supplies by a qualifying patient or personal caregiver for use in the treatment of a debilitating medical condition. e measure, upon approval by voters, would legalize the cultivation, purchase, possession and use of marijuana to treat medical conditions when recommended by the licensed physician. e measure would also order the Florida Department of Health to register and regulate producers and distributors of medical marijuana and to issue identication cards to patients and caregivers using marijuana. UnitedForCare, People United for Medical Marijuana, is backing the bill. e group says conversations about addiction are not really germane, noting that common substitutes to use instead of medical marijuana are opiates, which are highly addictive. e organization said the wording is not too lenient as critics claim. e Florida Supreme Court has already ruled that the amendment applies only to debilitating illnesses. Nothing in the amendment authorizes the use of marijuana by anyone other than a qualifying patient. Ben Pollada, campaign manager for UnitedForCare said McCallums concerns were unfounded when he said the medical marijuana amendment would cause other problems or broader use of the drug. Its for medical marijuana. Period, Pollada said. To get to the point that the sheri is trying to make, you have to not read the amendment. Pollada said most studies have shown that marijuana is no more addictive than chocolate or shopping. He said UnitedForCare conducted two polls last year showing a 70 percent approval rating for the amendment. More recent polls have shown the approval rating as high as 80 percent. For most Floridians, its not a controversial issue, Pollada said. But Attorney General Pam Bondi said the amendment would make Florida one of the most lenient medical marijuana states, allowing use for limitless other conditions specied by any physician. She said physicians could authorize marijuana for anything, any time, to anyone of any age. She said the amendment preys on voter sympathies for Floridas most vulnerable patients those suering from debilitating diseases. McCallum said he worries that marijuana will be dispensed in clinics and elsewhere to just about anyone claiming to be ill and will open up many opportunities to acquire marijuana. We feel the amendment is just a big cover-up to open the door to a lot of other things, McCallum said. e sheri said law enforcement has no breathalyzer test for drivers under the inuence of the marijuana, but he said a person stoned on pot would present a danger to other motorists. Opponents of the amendment also say it will add to the expense of law enforcement.Sheri Opposes Medical Marijuana Amendment, Supports Law Passed by Legislature continued from page 1A something else on the land. e property was soggy for much of the winter and spring. e other question is how to nance the project. DEP asked Brettel and the Bronson Town Council to conduct two public meetings to gather citizen input on the two projects. ree people attended the meetings on May 8. James H. Cobb Park was originally known as the Bronson Recreation Park. It was founded by former Levy County Youth Program Director Robbie (Pardue) Blake with backing by city councilwomen Harriet Wilson and Edith Brown, as well as Ada Marie Keeton and others. ey bought the rst piece of property on the north side of the park using money generated through fundraisers, a state grant, and from the harvest of pine timber on the property. Blake and her group handed the property over to the town many years ago. e town used FRDAP funds to expand the park southward and add baseball and softball elds, a track and a soccer eld. e town has arranged for a $300,000 line of credit with a bank for construction of the gymnasium/community center, but Brettel told the council that the $300,000 wont be enough money to build the facility. She estimates the cost could be as high as $500,000. e town council hasnt endorsed spending $500,000. e larger problem is developing the vacant piece of land on the west side of the park. Brettel suggested building the nature trail and adding bird feeders along the trail for the public to enjoy bird watching. Council members didnt act on Brettels suggest for a nature trail Bronson Recreation Director Curtis Stacy said the community center/gymnasium would be constructed at the site of the tennis courts. ree trees would have to be cut down and the playground moved to make room for the building. Brettel said the original bathrooms and concession stand could be taken down to make room for the new facility. e community center would have an internal concession stand and set of bathrooms. e building would be air conditioned. ere has also been talk of eliminating the original youth league baseball eld in that part of the park as part of the redesign, but nothing rm has been decided.State Agency Throws Roadblock in Front of Bronsons Park Plans continued from page 1A operating an Advance Life Support medical assistance truck. e city needs county commission approval.

Investigators developed Brad Michael Shipley DOB 9-2-77, as a primary suspect in these cases. Shipley was stealing guns, knives, shing poles and other outdoor/hunting equipment and using neighborhood kids to help him commit these crimes. Shipley threatened the kids telling them if they told they would go to jail with him. Shipleys plan unraveled when one of the kids told his mother what he had been made to do. e mother contacted LCSO and investigators seized the moment. Investigators were able recover property from six residential burglaries in Levy County, one burglary in Gilchrist County and a storage shed burglary in Alachua County. Shipley is being held in the Levy County Detention Facility on an $810,000.00 bond. submitted by Lt. Scott Tummond, Levy County Sheris Oce. Recovered stolen itemse Drug Task Force of the Levy County Sheris Oces began an investigation in September of 2013 in the Fanning Springs area of Levy County. Investigators targeted subjects who were engaged in selling street level narcotics. e investigation culminated in multiple charges being led on seven individuals and the issuance of arrest warrants on April 21, 2014. Drug agents were able to take ve of the seven into custody quickly. e remaining two, Henry and Williams, went on the run. e United States Marshals Florida Regional Fugitive Task Force assisted in locating and capturing these remaining two fugitives. ey were rapidly located and taken into custody. All suspects in these cases are being held at the Levy County Detention Facility awaiting trial on their individual charges. information submitted by Lt. Scott Tummond, Levy County Sheris OceDrug Ring in Fanning Springs Busted Mothers Day Kept Sheris Oce BusyHinote said it was a shame he was forced to come to the city commission to get action. is is ridiculous, it really is, he said. Hinote said his group has always been willing to work around CAAAs schedule, but they need access to the elds. CAAA President Wayne Weatherford defended the organization and denied that anyone intentionally ooded a eld or locked up equipment to prevent Hinotes team from playing. He said no one complained to him about not being able to use the elds. Weatherford said everyone knows he is easy to contact at his place of work at Winn Dixie. CAAA is the citys recreational operator for Strickland Park. It sets the playing schedule and maintains the facility for the city, but the Chieand City Commission owns the property. We didnt ood the eld, Weatherford said. Weatherford apologized for what happened and said he would do his best to straighten out the problem. Walker criticized both groups for arguing among themselves like children rather than talking to each other like adults. Weve got to respect these kids. You are not acting like brown people, she said. Everyone should be allowed to play. Weatherford said CAAA does lock up its equipment in a cage, but he said he was unaware the city had purchased an articial pitching mound. Since the controversy erupted, he said they havent been locking up the equipment. Jim Grieth, who attended as part of Hinotes group, commended Weatherford for his excellent work when he started CAAA. He described Weatherfords eorts as magnicent. When Weatherford started turning over the operation to others, Grieth said the park started going downhill. It needs to get back to where it was, he said. Weatherford is also coach of the Chieand High School varsity softball team that won a state championship Saturday. He said he has been focusing on the team and its championship run in recent weeks. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said the park wouldnt be there without CAAA. He said the city would need another big organization to take over without CAAA. He said hes not ready to run ball games for the city. City Commissioner Betty Walker noted that this is the second big controversy involving Strickland Park. e rst occurred when a church group held an Easter egg hunt on the property this year. City ocials said someone trashed the park with discarded plastic Easter eggs, forcing to the city to clean up the mess. e church said it cleaned up the leftover eggs and trash when the event was nished. At Mondays meeting, commissioners voted unanimously to hire a part-time cleanup person to take care of the trash and clean up the bathrooms at Strickland Park. e position pays minimum wage. e position will be active from March through December. Total cost to the city will be $9,587 annually. e money will come from the citys reserves. Pomeroy noted the city has $374,000 of unrestricted cash reserves. e total reserves for the city are $1.1 million if the restricted cash in sewer and water and other departments Chieand Ocials Want Peace Between Angry Parents and Recreation Group continued from page 1A Chieand parent Russell Hinote expresses anger to city commissioners for the way he says his team has been treated by CAAA.continued on page 8A


4A OPINION Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateAll politics is local. So Republican politicians with national ambitions better pay attention to what grassroots parents are saying and doing about the federal education racket known as Common Core. In bellwether Indiana this week, anti-Common Core activists won a pair of pivotal electoral victories against GOP Gov. Mike Pence. Pences attempt to mollify critics by rebranding and repackaging shoddy Common Core standards is fooling no one. Tuesdays Republican primary elections in the Hoosier state resulted in the landslide defeat of two establishment incumbents running for statewide re-election. Pence had endorsed GOP State Rep. Kathy Heuer over challenger Christopher Judy. Pences Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann had endorsed GOP State Rep. Rebecca Kubacki over challenger Curt Nisly. e incumbents enjoyed the support of the Common Corepromoting U.S. Chamber of Commerce. ese same Big Business elites backed Pences ploy to stave o grassroots parental opposition by withdrawing from Common Core -and then immediately adopting new standards that recycle the same old rotten ones. (See my April 30 column, Big Government GOPs Common Core Rebrand Hustle.) As Hoosier mom Erin Tuttle put it, Pences stunt gave the appearance of voiding the Common Core, while the Indiana Department of Education and the Center for Education and Career Innovation walked it through the backdoor.Challengers Judy and Nisly made their opponents refusal to help end Common Core in the state a central issue. Hoosiers Against Common Core, led by moms Tuttle and Heather Crossin, endorsed the dark-horse challengers. With little money and scant press attention, they beat Pences machine by astonishingly wide margins: Judy ousted Heuer 57-43; Nisly defeated Kubacki 65-35. Well before the horrors of Common Core had penetrated cable TV and late-night comedy shows, Indiana parents led the lonely charge. ey were at the vanguard of challenging the constitutionality, costs, substandard academic quality, privacy invasions and special interest lobbyists fueling Fed Ed. In 2012, Hoosiers Against Common Core spearheaded the stunning ouster of Tony Bennett -the Indiana GOPs scandal-plagued former state education secretary who ed to Common Core-peddling former Gov. Jeb Bushs Florida for another educrat job. (See my August 2, 2013, column, Rotten to the Core: Jeb Bushs Crony Republicans Against Higher Standards.) e way Pence is going, his 2016 ambitions may soon face the same fate. Pences hero Ronald Reagan advocated for abolishing the federal Department of Education. Yet, Pence is busy emulating the bureaucratic behemoth. In addition to embracing the expedient cut and paste rewrite of Indianas academic standards overseen by D.C. Common Core operatives, Pence is now pursuing the construction of a statewide student database. It looks and sounds a lot like the federal data-tracking warehouse championed by Common Core advocates. Youll remember that one of those national information collection schemes is inBloom. e idea was originally funded with Obama stimulus money and grants from the liberal Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. A division of Rupert Murdochs News Corp. built the database infrastructure. e nonprot startup inBloom Inc. evolved out of this strange alliance to operate the invasive database. e entity planned to compile everything from student and family health-care histories to income information, religious aliations, voting status, blood types and homework completion. Once again, grassroots parents revolted. Moms and dads on both sides of the political aisle rose up across the country to reject the latest tech boondoggle peddled by educrat nosybodies. Last fall, voters kicked out three school board members in Jeerson County, Colo., over their support of inBloom. Challengers Julie Williams, John Newkirk and Ken Witt won decisively over their incumbent opponents. e new board cut ties with inBloom; the superintendent, Gates Foundation-supported Cindy Stevenson, was forced to resign. And a few weeks ago, inBloom announced it was dissolving. It undoubtedly will morph into a newly renamed and repackaged entity, just like the Common Core standards in Indiana. In their new book, Conform, on what ails education in America, Glenn Beck and Kyle Olson expose the open contempt educrats have for parents. Its a classic Saul Alinksy tactic: Demonize your political targets. True to form, the professional character assassins of the Southern Poverty Law Center are now attacking anti-Common Core activists as extreme and far right. ats nonsense. e principles that unite parents of all ideologies against Fed Ed are bedrock tenets of our constitutional republic: local control, parental sovereignty, privacy protections and fundamental skepticism about the actual educational benets of massive government expenditures in the name of reform. e Davids of the Stop Common Core movement are exercising their freedoms of speech and association to beat back the deep-pocketed Goliaths at their schoolhouse doors. As always, sunlight is the best disinfectant. e ballot box is the ultimate sanitizer. Ideas have consequences. And Indiana is a harbinger. If the Common Core cheerleaders and rebranders in both parties think their bad ideas wont ever come back to haunt them at the polls, they are in for a very rude awakening.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Good Riddance: Common Core Backlash Claims New Political Casualties Thomas SowellCreators Syndicateere seems to be a full-court press on to get colleges to do something about rape on campus. But there seems to be remarkably little attention paid to two crucial facts: (1) rape is a crime and (2) colleges are not qualied to be law-enforcement institutions. Why are rapists not reported to the police and prosecuted in a court of law? Apparently this is because of some college women who say that they were raped and are dissatised with a legal system that does not automatically take their word for it against the word of someone who has been accused and denies the charge. ere seem to be a dangerously large number of people who think that the law exists to give them whatever they want -even when that means denying other people the same rights that they claim for themselves. Nowhere is this self-centered attitude more common than on college campuses. And nowhere are such attitudes more encouraged than by the Obama administrations Justice Department, which is threatening colleges that dont handle rape issues the politically correct way -that is, by presuming the accused to be guilty and not letting Constitutional safeguards get in the way. Anything that ts the war on women theme is seen as smart politics in an election year. e last thing Attorney General Eric Holders Justice Department is interested in is justice. e track record of academics in other kinds of cases is not the least bit encouraging as regards the likelihood of impartial justice. Even on many of our most prestigious college campuses, who gets punished for saying the wrong thing and who gets away with mob actions depends on which groups are in vogue and which are not. is is carried to the point where some colleges have established what they call free speech zones -as if they are granting a special favor by not imposing their vague and arbitrary speech codes everywhere on campus. e irony in this is that the Constitution already established a free speech zone. It covers the entire United States. Have we already forgotten the lynch mob atmosphere on the Duke University campus a few years ago, when three young men were accused of raping a stripper? ank heaven that case was handled by the criminal justice system, where all the evidence showed that the charge was bogus, leading to the district attorneys being removed and disbarred. If all the current crusades to institutionalize lynch law on campuses across the country were motivated by a zeal to protect young women, that might at least be understandable, however unjustied. But those who are whipping up the lynch mob mentality have shown far less interest in stopping rape than in politicizing it. Many of the politically correct crusaders are the same people who have pushed for unisex living arrangements on campus, including unisex bathrooms, and who have put condom machines in dormitories and turned freshman orientation programs into a venue for sexual liberation propaganda. ey laughed at old-fashioned restrictions designed to reduce sexual dangers among young people on campus. Now that real life experience has shown that these are not laughing matters, the politically correct still want their sexual Utopia, and want scapegoats when they dont get it. ere is a price to pay for allowing unsubstantiated accusations to prevail, and that price extends beyond particular young men whose lives can be ruined by false charges. e whole atmosphere of learning is compromised when male faculty have to protect themselves from accusations by female students. People today are amazed when I tell them about a young African woman who had just arrived in America back in 1963, and who was so overwhelmed by everything that she fell far behind in my economics class. I met with her each evening for an hour of tutoring until she caught up with the rest of the class. ere is no way that I would do that today, and there is no way that she would have passed that class otherwise. Instead, she would have returned to Africa a failure. ere are many unintended consequences of lynch law policies that poison the atmosphere on campus and diminish American life in general. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Following the announcement that Gov. Rick Scott signed HB 5601 into law, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam issued the following statement: Governor Rick Scott not only cut more than $121 million in taxes for Floridas families with the signing for HB 5601, he also provided long-term, sustainable funding for the education of Floridas next generation. I appreciate Gov. Scotts support for this legislation, which shifts more than $160 million per year to support Floridas classrooms. By signing HB 5601, Gov. Scott also established a sales tax holiday for the purchase of energy-ecient appliances, creating savings for Floridians on the purchase of these appliances, as well as on their utility bills. Gov. Scotts investment in Floridas children, consumers and businesses will have a lasting impact for generations to come. I appreciate his support for these measures to cut taxes and promote Floridas economic growth. I would also like to thank Senate President Don Gaetz, House Speaker Will Weatherford, Sen. Joe Negron and Rep. McKeel in working diligently to get this legislation passed. ese priorities of Commissioner Putnam, part of a bill originally lled by Sen. Anitere Flores and Rep. Mike Hill, will direct more than $160 million annually to fund the states Public Education Capital Outlay (PECO) trust fund, which provides money for education infrastructure at Floridas schools, colleges and universities. PECO, funded in part through a tax on land-line telephones, has diminished from nearly $200 million six years ago to just $73 million last year. e legislation shifts revenue from 2.6 percent of the 7 percent collected on the commercial electricity sales tax to support PECO. e legislation also reduces the sales tax rate that Floridas employers pay on electricity consumption, saving Florida business owners $3.1 million. In addition, the legislation provides a three-day tax holiday for consumers who purchase Energy Star or WaterSense appliances. Consumers would pay no tax on the rst $1,500 on these appliances purchased on Sept. 19-21, 2014.

All have turned in the required number of signature cards and have not drawn an opponent. Assuming no other candidates qualify, there would be no school board election in August or November. All three incumbents would retain their spot on the school board because they drew no opposition. In the county commission races, assuming no additional candidates qualify, every registered voter in Levy County would be eligible to cast a ballot in the August primary, even though all the candidates are registered Republicans. e race becomes universal when only candidates from the same party are running. e August county commission primary would return to a partisan primary if someone other than a Republican qualied to run for one of the seats or both of the seats. e fall election has already begun in one area of election politics. ree circuit judges from the 8th Judicial circuit have been re-elected without opposition, but the felony judge from Levy County, William E.

Scott on Signing Bill to Fund Education Infrastructure, Create Sales Tax Holiday on Energy-Ecient AppliancesLegislation Also Saves Businesses Millions on Electricity Consumption Taxes decriminalizing pot. e Gainesville Republican Congressman said too many young people are going to jail for minor infractions of the marijuana laws that ruin their lives. We all do enough dumb things on our own. When were young we seem to go out of way, Yoho said. Should they be penalized for the rest of their lives? Yoho didnt name the U.S. Senator with whom he has had discussions nor did he mention any plans to introduce legislation to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. Yoho raised the issue of decriminalizing marijuana on the federal level. UFCC ocials listened but did not respond to his comments. Much of the discussion with UFCC involved the groups eorts to educate young people about the need for abstinence, to live a drug-free lifestyle, to make healthy choices and to engage in traditional marriage. Yoho said he was glad to see the organization places an emphasis on traditional marriage and abstinence. UFCC was formed by Pastor Willie Battles in 2002 through his Unity Temple International Fellowship Church. e programs were initially run by the church without government funding, but the church has received $2 million in state and federal grants and operates in more than a dozen counties. Battles said the church has seen positive impacts on young people, but he said when the grants run out the work is more dicult because UFCC must depend largely on social media to stay in touch its young people rather than face to face contact. Yoho said he has no problems with programs like the ones UFCC is operating as long as they are run properly. Joyce Wilson said UFCC receives excellent audits and it tracks data about its work with young people. Yoho said he believes local programs that are accountable and instill values that encourage young people to complete their education, nd jobs, make good choices and live free of government assistance have value. He said his frequent reference during Mondays discussion to overspending by the federal government was intended to address waste. Much of the countrys $17.5 trillion in debt was generated by mandated annual spending, he said. But Yoho also cited the U.S. Governments spending in Afghanistan last year as an example of waste. We gave $1 billion to Afghanistan. ey werent able to account for $300 million of that money, Yoho said. How many programs in local communities could you fund with that kind of money. UFCCs #Keeper Till Marriage program interested Yoho because he likes traditional marriages. e program is aimed at empowering young people to change their behavior in ways that reduce the risk of pregnancy and contracting sexually transmitted diseases. Young people are encouraged to postpone sexual activity and practice abstinence. e program teaches young people that abstinence is the only sure way to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. Yoho asked how much child abuse UFCC was seeing in their work with young people. Nosheka Beard said they nd a lot of children dont know what a healthy relationship is. Annie Battles said they dont know how much abuse is actually reported. Yoho said he is also interested in the problem of human tracking. He said two people were arrested recently in Marion County for tracking in Hispanic girls. He added that Florida is ranked third in human tracking.Should Marijuana Be Decriminalized at the Federal Level? continued from page 1A SBLC Summer Food Service Program Needs Locations to Feed ChildrenOperating under the auspices of the School Board of Levy County, the Food, Nutrition and Wellness Program will once again be sponsoring a Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) for children in Levy County age 18 and under. e SFSP reaches only a fraction of the children in need as there is limited access due to insucient feeding sites. Feeding sites are the physical locations where lunch is served. Each site location must work with an SFSP sponsor (the School Board of Levy County) who is nancially and administratively responsible for the meal service at the feeding sites. Your community building or place of faith could become a designated feeding site. You can also help by coordinating site participation with other youth activity programs in your area. rough a brief application process, summer feed sites can feed children throughout the community such as schools, parks and recreation programs, low-income housing complexes, or community parks and pools essentially any place children gather during the summer months. If your daycare, community program, or place of faith is interested in participating, please contact Becky Tyson, Coordinator of Food, Nutrition and Wellness, at (352) 486-5244. A mandatory meeting will be scheduled for all SFSP participants prior to the start of the program to review policies and procedures and provide any other information that will make your SFSP a success! Deadline for Application: Friday, May 30, 2014. e School Board of Levy County will be operating feeding sites throughout Levy County at various locations, dates, and times beginning June 9 August 7, 2014. Summer feeding sites can either operate as open or enrolled sites. An open site is one located in a low-income area where at least 50 percent of the children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. e site is then open to all children in the community ages 18 and under. At an enrolled site, only children enrolled in the SFSP can participate. e site qualies if it is located in a low-income area or if 50 percent or more of the children enrolled in the program are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. ere is no cost to participate in the SFSP.


6A By Lisa Statham Posteraro Academic and Accelerated Reader awardsSpirit Week and pep rallyspring art showpreparing for a PTO programStudents and sta at Williston Elementary School were busy as the proverbial bee, even busier than usual!

For those achieving an 85% average or greater with 30 AR points earned during the 3rd nine weeks, a trip to Bouncin Big was the cheese at the end of that tunnel! irteen students earned this prize: Christopher Scott, Alejandro Vargas, Grandon Carlin, Sebastian Emeterio, Kylie Folsom, Patricia Martinez, Tabatha Padilla, Gunnar Maguire, Kaylenna Valdez, Marium Chowdhury, Mikah Jackson, Libby Hagan and Ashley Kline. All year art teacher Helen Darling worked hard using art to reinforce skills needed in math and science. Student art was on display at the recent extended parent conference night. e art room was a veritable art gallery with symmetrically colored butteries adorning the wall, postcards designed by students and abstract creations which popped out at the viewer wearing 3-D glasses. Students could earn an art pig-out pass for stopping by with a parent to enjoy the show. Besides the art show, the annual spring Scholastic book fair was open for business for the extended parent-teacher conference night. Media specialist Donna Lovvorn, with her faithful group of volunteers, hosted this event in a side room of the media center. Prots from the fair help supplement the library budget, allowing Lovvorn to order more materials for this hub of the campus. Leading up to the two-week FCAT testing window, WES planned an exciting Spirit Week April 7th through the 11th. On one day students and sta could wear the shoes of their choice; on another they could wear their clothes backwards or keep a hat on all day! en the week ended with a huge pep rally! Cheerleaders and a couple football players from Williston High School stopped by to share some cheers and give some advice about how to do ones best on the test. e students reviewed test-taking strategies via a PowerPoint presentation. en the highlight was a kneeslapping version of Family Feud, where the two teams battled it out answering FCAT-related questions about how to make sure they were rested and feeling great for taking the test as well has how to use the best test-taking strategies when they sat down to take the test. (roughout the state ocial FCAT testing began the week of April 14th and will continue through the end of the month.) Besides all this, the 3rd grade classes began rehearsals for their PTO program on Tuesday, May 6th.

NOTICE From School Board of Levy County reschedule the TIME to 9:00 a.m. Last Friday, Williston Central Christian Academy took a boat ride with Captain Brenda Heberling and had an eyeopening day on the Gulf. Perfect weather beckoned each and every one of the curious 5th graders. Great weather isnt always the case; Capt. Heberling has been out in full force rain with students barely noticing they were getting soaked. Its just more exciting to discover grass shrimp, brittle starsh and striped burrs, so the rain is barely an inconvenience, said Heberling of the last weeks trip. e rst stop on the perfect Friday morning was Seahorse Key, part of the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge, in order to visit the Cedar Keys Light Station with the Refuge Ranger. e students learned about the symbiotic relationship between the birds of the now active rookery, and the cottonmouth moccasins inhabiting the islands wilderness area, beneath the nests of young hatchlings. e students were more ready for sh stories, than snake tales, so they headed to the boat. en, they set-o to use the dredge-net behind Levy Countys 4-H Extension pontoon boat. Capt. Heberling gave precise directions to the students which enabled them to gather and study many strange looking creatures pulled from the dark estuarine waters. It was a treasure hunt for the Gulfs bizarre-looking marine critters and they hit the jackpot. Next was seining along the shoreline of Atsena Otie, but the tide was extremely high leaving no shoreline. So, what are children to do with all that water? SWIM! was the resounding cry and they did. ese normally land-locked 5th-graders dove in and had a great time studying human buoyancy in the Gulf. After their picnic lunch in City Park, all the talk on the bus ride home was about their new discoveries of Gulf life a real life learning experience. FCAT may measure skills, but real world learning stays with us most of our lives. Come to learn in your National Wildlife Refuges!

Beauchamp, Jr., former Levy County judge. e sh fry dates back at least three decades to the days when the gathering was called Ishie Day. It was named for the late Levy County Courthouse custodian and purchasing agent Norwood Ishie. Back then, the day was set aside for county politicians to eat bream and bass at Meeks Camp on the Suwannee River. It was later moved to Beauchamps camp two houses down, a larger facility that could accommodate more guests. Billie Ray Sharp, a former county commissioner, cooked hush puppies for Fridays gathering while Osborne Barker, the property appraiser, prepared the meal that Sharp was cooking. Sharp has cooked for the gathering for 25-30 years. He said the sh for Ishie Day were caught by the organizers. Today the mullet are purchased. Retired Levy County sheris deputy Gary Sache and Lt. Scott Tummond, a sheris oce criminal investigator and public information ocer, cooked mullet, the main entre for the meal. County Judge Tim Browning, who was instrumental in organizing the Law Day sh fry gathered the group to remember fallen law enforcement ocers like the late Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Richard who gave her life to protect Floridians. ey put themselves in harms way, Browning said. Browning said the danger to law enforcement ocers isnt always a gun. Richard was killed when she stopped to investigate a trac accident on I-75 in Marion County and was hit by a vehicle involved in a second crash at the same location. Keep law enforcement in your heart and pray, Browning said. Luther Beauchamp, brother to former County Judge W.O. Beauchamp, Jr., repeated a story Ishie had told him about the late Judge John Crews taking him to task for chewing tobacco in the courtroom. Ishie got out of his seat to spit out the tobacco outside the courthouse, but Crews ordered him to sit down. He said he swallowed his tobacco, Beauchamp said. Beauchamp said Ishie Day was moved from Meeks Camp to Beauchamp Camp because it had more room and could accommodate more people. e dining area was enlarged for the gathering. He believes his brother was instrumental in changing the annual sh fry to a day where law enforcement ocials and others involved in protecting the public safety would be honored. Judge Beauchamps son, Brett, an attorney and the undersheri for the Levy County Sheris Oce, was among those present for the sh fry. Public Defender Stacy Scott chats with Assistant State Attorney Bill Ezell as she tends to a batch of fried mullet. Billie Ray Sharp, former county commissioner, has cooked for the sh fry that is now Law Day for 25 to 30 years.

By Terry Witt Senior Staff Writer Chieands young varsity girls softball team won the state Class 1A softball championship Saturday with solid pitching, relentless hitting, never getting rattled and being faithful to their practice of praying before and after the game. e team gathered in a circle before the trip to Vero Beach ursday to ask for protection and a safe trip to the nal four, and after defeating Jay 9-2 for the championship they formed a circle around the pitchers mound to hold hands, bow their heads and give thanks. Coach Wayne Weatherford said someone wondered out loud before the girls walked to the mound if they might be criticized for oering a prayer, but the girls felt it was important to give thanks for the victory, which was something they had been doing all year. As soon as the game ended, they said, Its not over. We havent given thanks for what he gave us, Weatherford said. ese girls truly believe in God and they believe he carried us through this game. Weatherford said the six freshman starters on the team and the other girls were attentive on the trip to Vero Beach when senior Kelsi Alexander read scripture to them.

She read scripture a couple of times. e Chieand team felled several giants on their way to Chieand High Schools rst state softball title. e Lady Indians toppled the undefeated Dixie County Bears 3-2 for the regional championship and the right to advance to the nal four. Once again, prayer played a role. One of the parents entered the dugout before the game and started to read scripture from Philippians that all things are possible through God, according to Weatherford. Dixie County had beaten Chieand 3-2 for the District title earlier. e Lady Indians turned the tables on Dixie County in the regional title game. In Vero Beach, Chieand beat No. 3 ranked Sneads 12-2 Friday night to advance to the championship round and topped No. 2 ranked Jay 9-2 for the state title the following night. Chieand was ranked No. 6 going into the tournament. Weatherfords wife, Lena, who keeps statistics for the team, said Chieand made few mistakes and never lost condence in their ability to win. ese girls; they never get rattled. It doesnt matter the circumstances, they remain cool and calm. Ive never seen them get down, she said. In the state championship game and the semi-nal game, sophomore Lauren Stalvey was unstoppable. She pitched all seven innings in both games. Coach Wayne Weatherford said Stalvey moved the ball around plate and kept batters o balance. I so underestimated her at the beginning of the season, Weatherford said. Toward the end she was on re. Chieand peaked at the right time, outscoring opponents 30-6 in the nal ve games and beating the top three ranked Class 1A teams in Florida. In the win over Sneads, Chieand scored seven runs in the 7th inning to underscore its hitting power. In the championship game, the Lady Indians scored four runs in the 7th inning. Weatherford said he emphasized hitting in practices. Each of the girls was required to swing at 150 pitches every practice. ey never complained. Chieand has two seniors.

Chieand had 14 hits in the game, Sneads 6 hits. e victory for Weatherford had spiritual signicance even beyond the game itself. In 2007 he retired as the coach when he became gravely ill. Chieand had gone to the nal four in 2007 behind the pitching of his daughter Megan. He returned to the head coaching spot last year. On Saturday night, Wayne and Lena Weatherford returned home with the state trophy on an empty Levy County school bus. All the girls had gone home with their parents from Vero Beach. When the bus arrived at the CHS parking lot Weatherford was greeted with a big hug from his daughter. His infant grandchild, Stella, was part of a crowd of about 20 friends and family who snapped photos and congratulated the Weatherfords. Someone had decorated Weatherfords truck with signs congratulating him on winning the state softball championship. Its been a prayer for me to come back, he said. Coach Wayne Weatherford and his team gather for prayer before they head south to Vero Beach to play in the nal four of the state softball championship.

I say it every morning as I funnel onto the Interstate 55 speedway and make my rush hour trek to Memphis. My day job barely inspires me to do the speed limit, so I am constantly amazed to see so many people excited to get to work. I only wish the thought of punching in brought that much joy to me! Almost every day some guy will practically latch on to my bumper and piggy back me through the construction zone, seemingly upset weve slowed to eighty. I think to myself, Now he must be a chemist right on the verge of a cure for cancer. en a young lady will whip out and pass me in the emergency lane. Maybe shes close to solving world hunger? Maybe before lunch at this rate! Sometimes I have gotten a little jealous, but when I see these happy commuters blazing past me honking and waving that Im number one, who could hold a grudge? It just melts my heart. I can only bid them Godspeed. Who knows, maybe one day Ill get rid of this little four cylinder and keep up long enough to nd out where this magical work place is. Maybe theyre taking resumes? I reckon in a perfect world we should all have Hundred Mile per Hour jobs, and be able to take our time getting there. Yet how can we slow down when this real world seems to be bucking us like a rabid snot-slinging old rodeo bull? Shucks, some days just hanging on for eight seconds is an accomplishment, much less eight hours. ere are no stress exemptions on the home front either. If your house is like mine, its stued with gadgets and gizmos that promised to save you time. Im yet to see a minute of it! Well, take heart. ere is a way to nd both success and peace despite the myriad of deadlines and commitments we face. e rst step is for us to look up and realize not all of our commitments were ordained by God. We can do it now, or we can wait and do it from our death bed, and regret weve spent our lives like a hamster on a wheel. e fact is our garages grow junk. Sometimes we need to get alone with God to evaluate what needs to be chunked. Weighted down people wobble, but if we keep Jesus in the center, well maintain a balance. We wont collect the muck and mire that does so easily beset us. Somebody once said that BUSY stands for Being Under Satans Yoke. I partly believe it, and while I doubt God would ever advocate the shirking of your responsibilities, I believe He may suggest taking your laptop onto the golf course isnt such a good idea! Jesus said, (Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will nd rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 KJV) Who are you yoked up with? When I think about the peace the Lord has brought into my life I often wonder why the Interstate seems so lazy on Sunday mornings. I keep hoping to see it wild and crazy like on Mondays. Id more than welcome a good tongue lashing for impeding somebodys commute to Church. Sadly, Sundays are pretty calm, at least until after the closing prayer and we all race to the buet! But anywayIf one Sunday morning you happen to see a little silver four banger in your rear view coming up quick, be prepared to try and keep up. Itll be heading to a place theyll gladly accept your application. And watch out on Monday evenings too, God has blessed me with one of those Hundred Mile per Hour families.

Wed been there about a year and one morning a black lab showed up at our house. He was starved so Mrs. Jean fed him; she adopted him. Not long after that we got a tom turkey and he adopted Ms. Jean and followed her everywhere she went in the yard. A stranger would drive up to the house and that turkey would meet him. We did not need a guard dog. He didnt like me, but me and him had an understandin he didnt bother me and I wouldnt hit him with the broom handle. We got a baby deer and it took up with the turkey and two dogs. We live on CR 345 and our mailbox was just outside the gate. When Ms. Jean went to the mailbox all these animals followd her and stood by while she checked the mail. People driving down 345 would blow their horns! Moral of the Story: Our house was a down south Noahs Ark. Contact Bill for a CD at 352/493-2766 or write him at: 8151 NW 77 Place, Chieand, 32626.

Once again, after donating over 500 hours in the calendar year, Ron Black, volunteer caretaker of Shell Mound is Volunteer of the Year at Lower Suwannee and Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuges for the third year in a row. You could say Black is a workaholic, because he cant just kick back and enjoy retirement. Ron Black volunteers like he is still on duty after retiring 15 years ago from a long career in teaching Natural Resources Management and Interpretive Services at Hocking College in Ohio. During their retirement years he and wife Christine worked re-tower duty in Yellowstone National Park for two summers. Minimalist living of re-tower life and very little contact with the public led to their volunteering locally at Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve and the State Museum. en, Ron found the Lower Suwannee NWR needed help and came to the rescue. Shell Mound is now his second home. Every old friend of the family, who comes to visit the Blacks for any length of time, ends up joining Ron at Shell Mound as he welcomes visitors to the popular recreation. Ron interprets the latest archaeological ndings, maintains the trails and shing pier. He also recruits local friends and family. His latest project, in addition to Shell Mound, is the upkeep of the beautiful archaeological site, Shired Island on the Gulf in Dixie County. Sitting next to a county campground, it is highly visited and used for shing from the seawall, dropping vessels in at the boat ramp, and hiking out to the beach. A total of 10 hours a week dedicated to the recreation site, keeps Black even busier. His donated hours will climb by leaps and bounds from the nearly 600 a year he oered-up for the past three years. Black will receive a third 500 hours pin from the US Fish & Wildlife Service as well as an America the Beautiful Pass for his passionate service. Interested in joining Ron Black and the others who donate time to make the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge a better place? Call the Volunteer Coordinator at 352/4930238, ext 223. submitted Ron Black, again, donates over 500 hours to the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge. Photo courtesy of Refuge Ranger Pam Darty. By Terry Witt Senior Staff Writere dark era in America history when people with intellectual handicaps were housed mainly in institutions and given few opportunities to have fun and work for a living or interact with other people is slowly fading away. ose days havent vanished completely, but the Fanning Springs Disability Expo Saturday was an eort to give intellectually handicapped and others with physical disabilities an opportunity to experience the outdoors and have fun. e event took place at Fanning Springs State Park and involved representatives of Special Olympics, the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association, the state Agency for Persons with Disabilities, the Levy County Health Department, Levy Association of Retarded Citizens (LARC) and other groups. Approximately 400 people attended the inaugural event overlooking the ooded spring run at the state park. A band played, people danced, and others played games after eating a meal. e Association of Retarded Citizens from Alachua County performed simple dance routines to the sound of prerecorded music. Levy County commissioners cooked a meal for the event. Barbara Palmer, state director for the Agency for Persons with Disabilities, began traveling the state when she rst assumed oce and noticed that urban areas had more opportunities for disabled individuals than rural areas. She said the agency is now reorganized around community outreach and external aairs. is is the rst event in a rural area. Betty Walker (LARC executive director) has been a spark behind us, Palmer said. Walker said years ago, persons with intellectual disabilities were called closet kids. Im glad they got their rights too, she said. Now they hold jobs and they are involved in the community. Walker runs a work center in Otter Creek where intellectually disabled persons refurbish used furniture for pay. Nancy Sawyer, senior vice president for Special Olympics, set up a tent at the festival to give intellectually challenged people dental screenings. She said doctors and dentists arent always willing to serve intellectually challenged individuals. e Special Olympics organization gives individuals assistance in nding doctors and dentists through the Healthy Athletes program that takes place at competitions. Special Olympics oers seven dierent types of screenings at competitions, including dental screenings. e state games for Special Olympics are next week at ESPNs World of Sports in Orlando at Disney World. Special Olympics will oer six of the seven screenings for athletes participating in the event. David Jones, founder of the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association was on hand for the festival. He said the festival is an example of what the organization does to help disabled people experience the outdoors. is is what were trying to do. Were trying to introduce people to opportunities, he said. Jones founded the organization in 1990 after completing rehabilitation for a brain injury that resulted from a turkey hunting accident. He spent 9 days in a coma, 15 days in intensive care and three months in a hospital. He couldnt walk or talk in the immediate aftermath of the injury, but was determined to recover. Vocational rehabilitation helped him go back and nish his degree in business. He decided to use outdoor recreation to get back to a normal life and later founded Florida Disabled Outdoors Association to inspire disabled people to go back outdoors and enjoy living a higher quality of life. e year Jones founded the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association, the U.S. Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act. He said the ADA was a fabulous law that has helped disabled people across the nation. Who are people with disabilities? Its just us our children, our parents, our boss. ey are no dierent than us. ey just have a few areas that are dierent, he said. In our organization we help people directly, but we help people to help others.First Disabled Expo Attracts 400 Visitors to Fanning SpringsLevy Association of Retarded Citizens Director Betty Walker (foreground) watches clients from the Alachua County ARC dance to music.
