As if to put an exclamation point on their championship, the Florida Dairy Farmers Sports Award Program named Brittany Gilliam Player of the Year and Head Coach Wayne Weatherford Coach of the Year in Class 1A softball. Both are nalists for the overall Player of the Year for all eight classications. e next big challenge for Weatherford and the girls will be raising $6,800 to buy championship rings. Neither the school nor the school district are allowed to provide money for that purpose. Weatherford said the team will depend on donations from the community to purchase the rings. Gilliam was deserving of the Player of the Year Award, according to Weatherford, calling her an all-around player who was dependable with a bat in her hand and on defense. Shes a good kid and one of our captains. You always knew when she was coming up to bat she would get on base, Weatherford said. She was an awesome hitter.Chieand State Softball Champions Honored With a Parade By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere Williston Red Devil baseball team returned on May 21 to a heros welcome in downtown Williston after winning the Class 1A state championship at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers. Williston defeated Chipley 4-0 in the state title game behind the pitching of senior Trent Johnson. A day earlier, Williston pounded Paxton 4-0 in the seminal round with pitching from Austin Langworthy. e Red Devil players bus arrived just as school was letting out. Two police cars led the bus into town followed by re trucks. Students cheered from the road side. A crowd swarmed over the team as it unloaded in the school parking lot. A parade honoring the team is scheduled for 5 p.m. ursday. e parade will begin at S.E. 6th St. and travel on Noble Ave. to the football stadium where the celebration will continue. Williston came into the state tournament ranked number one in the state. e Red Devils quickly dispatched number six ranked Paxton and number three ranked Chipley. ere wasnt any doubt about who was the top Class 1A team in Florida. It was an awesome feeling.

Gay denied he had done anything wrong and said he had followed the directions of the mayor and commission and worked hard to meet the expectations of commissioners. e commissions action brought a backlash from citizens in the audience who questioned whether he was being treated fairly and who said they didnt understand the reasons why his contract was not being renewed. Businessman Terrance Reed asked if Gay knew in advance he might lose his job. I heard on the street this man was going to be red, and thats sad, Reed said. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said Gay had received his evaluation forms from city commissioners well in advance of the meeting and knew what might be coming. Gay had scored a 3.1 on his overall evaluation out of a possible 5 points, but the above average score didnt account for politics. Gay promised the city would hear from his attorney after he was told by Pomeroy that he was no longer city manager. However technically, he apparently was still city manager when he left the meeting room. After the special meeting to evaluate Gay ended, and Gay left the room, City Attorney Norm Fugate told commissioners that they had made a technical error when they voted 3-2 to reject Commissioner Teresa Barrons motion renewing the contract with two changes. e majority thought they had ended Gays employment. continued to page 8AChieand Prepares for June 3 Joint Workshop on ALS Truck By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand City Commissioners Tuesday set the stage for next Tuesdays joint workshop with the Levy County Commission at the Tommy Usher Center by asking City Attorney Norm Fugate to attend to answer legal questions. e 6 p.m. meeting is intended to let the two sides hash out whether the county commission should issue a Certicate of Public Need and Necessity to operate an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. Levy County Commissioners hold the state license for operating an Emergency Medical Service in Levy County. e county would have to give the city a Certicate of Public Need and Necessity to operate an ALS non-transport truck. e city would like to operate under the county medical directors license and coordinate with county EMS as needed, but at the same time remain an independent municipal entity. e county commission last September denied the citys request for an ALS non-transport truck. One of the county commissions arguments is that EMS already operates two roving ALS nontransport trucks and the paramedic drivers sleep over in Chieand and Williston. But the trucks are intended to respond to calls throughout Levy County and are not guaranteed to be in Chieand or Williston at any given time. Chieand Fire Rescue says it wants an ALS non-transport truck permanently stationed in Chieand to respond only to calls in Chieand and the immediate area surrounding the city. e truck would respond to medical emergencies before the ambulance arrives to stabilize patients who might otherwise die. Dispatch logs kept by the Levy County Sheris Oce indicate Chieand Fire Rescue arrives at accidents and other medical emergencies well before county ambulances. But the devil is the details. e county has questions, and so does the city. Fugate was given permission to contact Gainesville city ocials who have gone through a similar process and have operated ALS nontransport trucks for many years under a license provided by the county.

ZELLER, VALERIE LOU, 45, OF HIGH SPRINGS, FL: DISORDERLY INTOX.Look what happens when everyone does his (or her) job: Last December Paul Wright of Orlando tried to cash a counterfeit check at Drummond Bank. He was accompanied by an accomplice who is still at large but with a warrant outstanding. e teller he addressed didnt like the looks of the signature on the check and called for a supervisor. Wright took the check back and left the bank. He was later arrested for Possession of a Counterfeit Check, taken to jail, pled guilty and is now serving a DOC sentence. e teller (name withheld) looked closely at the check, looked at the suspect, identied him by his drivers license and was prepared to testify to all that in court. She did everything right. e bank security manager tendered the security video as evidence to the police. e victim whose account was compromised was able to provide the suspects name as he (Paul Wright) had cashed another check in the name of the victims business in Chieand, earlier. e Williston Police investigated the case, led a sworn complaint with the State Attorney who issued a warrant and led a complaint with the court. A great percentage of the time, a crime like this goes unanswered because one or more of these people let something fall through the cracks. After all, its a nonviolent crime. Still, the lady whose account was hijacked and the bank that lost the money might not feel so blas about such a failure. Kudos to Drummond Bank, your meticulously trained tellers, your security manager, the highly involved victim and the Oce of the State Attorney for doing their jobs. We won one today and I hope that sends a message to the criminal community and inspires other businesses as well that we will do our jobs to combat crime and fraud. ank you.submitted by Clay Connolly, Williston Police Department PUBLIC NOTICE NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT THE LEVY COUNTY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND THE CITY OF CHIEFLAND WILL HOLD A JOINT WORKSHOP ON TUESDAY, JUNE 3, 2014 AT 6:00 P.M.

Sheris Deputies Stop Mobile Meth Lab and Make the ArrestsDeputies from both Alpha and Bravo patrol companies began following up on lab leads over the weekend. is culminated in three arrests on Monday by Deputy Weatherford and K-9 Deputy Anderson. Tuesday, these two Deputies continued their aggressive assault on meth operations to make this second case. ese deputies followed up by making three more arrests for manufacturing methamphetamines. Deputy Weatherford and K-9 Deputy Anderson furthered the information they gained from Mondays case by arresting Michael Tipler, 1/20/88, Harris Garcia, 12/9/92, and Edward Garcia, 6/30/91. ese deputies discovered Tipler had active warrants and began searching for him. ese warrants were issued from Gilchrist County for Violation of Probation stemming from an earlier arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; and an active warrant from Dixie County for aggravated battery on a law enforcement ocer, possession of listed chemicals (for meth production), eeing and attempting to elude law enforcement and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both of these warrants had a NO BOND. e deputies located Tipler who was traveling in a 2003 white Pontiac van in the 3600 block of US Alt Hwy 27. Tipler was in the company of the Garcia brothers. As the deputies began their investigation they discovered this trio had mobile meth lab in the vehicle with them. ey summoned the assistance of the LCSO Drug Task Force to disassemble and render this mobile operation safe. is investigation continued to snowball and led DTF investigators to a second lab disposal site in the Bronson area. Investigators worked additional hours making this site safe too. DTF said this site contained the used-components trash created during the manufacturing of this dangerous and toxic drug. e site had the used mixed-volatile ingredients like lithium and other solvents, which can still cause great bodily harm to any unsuspecting person not aware what they are handling. Tipler was arrested and charged with production of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. His bond is set at $60,000.00. Both Harris Garcia and his brother Edward Garcia have been arrested and charged with production of methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute. eir bond has been set at $60,000.00 each. Harris Garcia is also facing additional charges for two counts of grand theft auto and dealing in stolen property. ese charges are currently being led by the Criminal Investigations Division of LCSO after a post arrest interview yesterday. Harris Garcia had been identied as a suspect in the theft of at least two vehicles in the Bronson area.submitted by Lt. Scott Tummond, Levy County Sheris Oce.

3A said. e rst batter popped up for an out. Johnson mowed down the next two batters with strikeouts. Johnson said he threw a mix of pitches in the game, but in the stretch he was throwing heat. e high speed fast balls were dicult to see. He struck out 10 batters and gave up one walk. Johnson throws an 88 mile-per-hour fast ball. Johnson, who nished 10-2, said the team worked toward a state championship all season. Johnson said he hasnt really thought about turning pro someday, but he plans to get stronger and develop as a player at Santa Fe. e 2014 state baseball championship was the second in school history. e rst championship was 91 years earlier in 1923. Austin Langworthy, a sophomore who is planning to play for the University of Florida when he graduates in two years, pitched in the semi-nal game against Paxton. Langworthy hit a triple to give Williston its rst run in the semi-nal game and pitched three scoreless innings to end the game. He struck out the nal two batters. Coach Scott Hall said pitching set the Red Devils apart from other teams. He said he was blessed to have great athletic talent across the board and two talented pitchers who kept the team on track for a state title all season. Hall said he never had a doubt he was throwing his best pitcher in the championship game. He had complete condence Langworthy would come through in the semi-nal round. But beating two top ranked teams 4-0 was something special. at comes from a lot of talent and a higher power than us, Hall said. A large crowd of Williston fans followed the team to Fort Myers, but the team may have had an equally large following in Williston. First United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church and Church of God televised the games through Internet streaming. Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat said he watched the game at the Church of God with about 100 people in attendance. He heard the crowd was about the same size in the other two churches. Its awesome that the community has come together for them, said Hethcoat. Im proud of the fact that the coaches worked together, the players worked together and the community joined to support the team.four out of ve showed signs of PTSD at some point in their life. Some experienced bouts of depression, hurting others or themselves. He noted 5,000 veterans commit suicide every year. PTSD is the leading cause of homelessness and unemployment for veterans, Meeks said. One third of all homeless are veterans and more than 70 percent suer from drug abuse. Meeks said the average person can help veterans by contributing to the Wounded Warrior project, which helps veterans adjust to civilian life. He said the USO helps with veteran loans and nancial support for families. Paralyzed Veterans of America provides job training and education to veterans that sacriced their freedoms for ours, Meeks said. People can volunteer their services at the Malcom Randall Veterans Administration Hospital in Gainesville, or contact the local Veterans Service Ocer to help local veterans, or work with the local D.A.V. to volunteer with transportation. Meeks said people can make a simple gesture to recognize veterans. ey can walk up to a veteran to thank them for their service to the country. ank our veterans; a simple thank you! Meeks said. We often take for granted the ones that most deserve our gratitude our veterans. Memorial Day was begun three years after the Civil War ended on May 5, 1868. Cities in the north and south claim Memorial Day started in their towns. One of the earliest springtime celebrations of the war dead occurred in Columbus, Miss. on April 1866 when a group of women were decorating the graves of Confederate soldiers and noticed the graves of the Union dead were bare of owers. Disturbed by the sight, the ladies laid owers on the graves of the Union dead as well. e celebration of the war dead in Columbus, Miss. is thought to be the earliest celebration of what was originally called Decoration Day. e U.S. Congress declared Waterloo, N.Y. as the ocial home of Memorial Day on May 5, 1866.Bronson Community Remembers Those Who Sacriced All for Their Country continued from page 1A Dick Mudd, Sharon Sheldon, Arlene Lang and Anna Elkins raise the American Flag as part of the Memorial Day Ceremony at Rosemary Cemetery in Bronson.

4A OPINION Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateAt least 40 American veterans are dead thanks to bureaucratic delays at Veterans Aairs clinics. But you wouldnt know it from VA Secretary Gen. Eric Shinsekis bland and bloodless demeanor at a Senate hearing ursday. He droned on like an apathetic oce manager elding complaints about the copier being jammed. Shinseki told the Senate panel he cant remember getting warnings from federal watchdogs last fall about ghost clinics and double-scheduling schemes. He said he was not aware of explosive book-cooking allegations like the ones at a Fort Collins, Colo., VA facility, where employees were ordered to make their records show that veterans got appointments within 14 days of the day requested, whether or not it was true. In response to bipartisan disgust with the VAs serial incompetence and fatally long wait times, oblivious Shinseki blathered about customer satisfaction surveys. And when it came time to deliver his calculated sound bite about being mad as hell at mounting allegations of criminal fraud and neglect, Shinsekis perfunctory tone echoed a jaded 411 operator: City and state, please? Asked whether VA employees who alter records should be red, Shinsekis deputy Robert Petzel said he didnt know whether thats the appropriate level of punishment. Shinseki interjected that a whopping 3,000 VA workers, including senior managers, had been involuntarily removed for misconduct last year -only to admit that an unknown number of those had simply been reassigned or allowed to retire. In true paper-pusher form, the VAs top brass have ordered yet another study to assess how and why the VA ignored years of other studies, reports and audits of the departments waste, fraud and abuse. Showing even more tonedeafness, Shinseki bragged openly about his close friendship with top White House aide Rob Nabors, who is now overseeing the kabuki review of his departments failures. Can you spell crony whitewash? Pressed on why he hadnt reported illegal data falsication to the FBI, Shinseki demurred that it was the inspector generals call, not his. In other words: e buck stops somewhere else. Attorney General Eric Holder hid behind the VA inspector general, too. ere are no plans for a DoJ probe into the secret waiting lists at the Phoenix VA hospital, where scores of sick vets languished for months before perishing. Question: Why is activist zealot Holder so content to wait for the IG? Given this administrations shady record of crushing whistleblowers, railroading IGs and replacing them with dirty lapdogs, Shinsekis vow to get to the bottom of this latest deadly scandal while Holder and the FBI sit on the sidelines stinks to high hell. Taking care of the nations war veterans is an obligation that has existed since the days of the Continental Congress. But for decades, under both GOP and Democratic administrations, the men and women who served our country have been literally left to die by government caretakers. Fifteen years ago, I reported on VA bureaucrats who took better care of administrative buildings and vacant hospitals than their own patients. Back then, an independent General Accounting Oce found that the agency was spending more than $1 million a day to sustain unneeded hospital buildings. Another $35 million was squandered annually to perform upkeep on empty space, including unused lots and warehouses, while vets were forced to le malpractice suits over substandard care. We have created the damnedest country club in America, one VA watchdog activist I quoted said at the time. Whatever toys they want, they get. Nobody is watching what they spend these millions of dollars on, and obviously, no one cares. Fifteen years later, its the same old, same old. More empty excuses, feckless denials and deadly red tape. e names change, but the games the same: Support the troops platitudes and photo-ops at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Screw the troops in the bowels of the VA bureaucracy, where book-cookers were busy collecting bonuses instead of saving lives. And everyone at the top refuses to resign. Its self-serving government as usual. Id ask how hope and change is working out for the aected veterans. But theyre not around to answer. eir chilling silence speaks volumes.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923The VAs Deadly Bureaucratic Drones Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateRandom thoughts on the passing scene: Will the Veterans Administration scandal wake up those people who have been blithely saying that what we need is a single payer system for medical care? Delays in getting to see a doctor have been a common denominator in government-run medical systems in England, Canada and Australia, among other places. Class warfare rhetoric would have us resenting the top ten percent in income. But that would be a farce, because most of us would be resenting ourselves, since more than half of all Americans -54 percent -are in the top ten percent at some stage of their lives. Some people act as if the answer to every problem is to put more money and power in the hands of politicians. Freedom means nothing if it does not mean the freedom to do what other people dont like. Everyone was free to be a Communist under the Stalin dictatorship, and everyone is free to be a Muslim in Saudi Arabia. Yet whole generations are coming out of our colleges where only those who are politically correct are free to speak their minds. What kind of America will they create? In omas Pikettys highly-praised new book, Capital in the Twenty-First Century he asserts that the top tax rate under President Herbert Hoover was 25 percent. But Internal Revenue Service records show that it was 63 percent in 1932. If Piketty cant even get his facts straight, why should his grandiose plans for conscatory global taxation be taken seriously? Sometimes I think that this is an era when sanity has become controversial. Republicans in Congress seem to be drawn toward the immigration issue like a moth toward a ame. How turning illegal immigrants into Democratic voters, while demoralizing the Republican base, will help either the country or the Republicans is a mystery. If ever there was a high-risk, low-yield investment, this is it. President eodore Roosevelt said that his foreign policy was to speak softly and carry a big stick. President Barack Obamas foreign policy is to speak loudly and carry a little stick. ey say talk is cheap, but loose talk by a President of the United States can be very expensive in both blood and treasure. One of the scariest aspects of our times is how seldom either people or policies are judged by their track record. Why in the world are the Baltic states in NATO? e Russian army could overrun them before NATO could get a meeting together to decide what to do. If the Democrats retain control of the Senate after this years election, Barack Obama can load the federal courts from top to bottom with judges who will ignore the Constitution, as he does, and promote his far-left political agenda instead, long after he is gone. I get nervous every time I see Mitt Romney showing up in the media. He seems to be maintaining his visibility, in hopes of another run for the White House in 2016. He might well get a second chance to fail. Romney is the Republican establishments idea of the perfect candidate for president -no matter how many times such candidates lose, even under promising conditions. Anti-Semitism may have the dubious distinction of being the oldest of the group hatreds. You might think that the world would have gotten over anti-Semitism by now, but Jews have been singled out for separate treatment by the Russian insurgents in Ukraine. We cannot insure to the vicious the fruits of a virtuous life; we would not invade the home of the provident in order to supply the wants of the spendthrift; we do not propose to transfer the rewards of industry to the lap of indolence. Democratic presidential nominee William Jennings Bryan said that in 1896. Todays Democrats do all those things that Bryan rejected. Any fool can say the word racism. In fact, quite a few fools do say it. But clever people can also say racism, in order to get fools to vote their way. ose people who want Hillary Clinton elected president, so that we could have our rst woman president, seem to have learned absolutely nothing from the current disaster of choosing a president on the basis of demographics and symbolism. e old saying that taxes are the price we pay for civilization has long since become obsolete. e amount that the government spends to defend us from foreign attack, or to maintain law and order at home, has been overtaken by the money it spends just to transfer some peoples money to other people who are more likely to vote for the reelection of incumbents. Government policies to bring down the cost of medical care almost never bring down those costs, and often increase the costs. ese policies simply refuse to pay the full costs of medical care. Any one of us can do that, but we know there will be consequences. ere will also be consequences when the government refuses to pay the costs, but these consequences will be concealed and/or denied. e old saying that politics is the art of the possible is dead wrong. Politics is the art of making the impossible seem possible, and even plausible and desirable. at is how ObamaCare got passed. To let the worlds leading terrorism-exporting nation get nuclear weapons can prove to be the most irresponsible and catastrophic decision in the history of the human race. It was also an irresponsible and catastrophic decision of the American voters to elect as president someone who would let that happen, basing their votes on rhetoric and racial symbolism.omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

I believe the amendment places the safety of our citizens and our community in Williston in jeopardy. After marijuana was legalized in Colorado, several fourth-graders were disciplined for selling and swapping marijuana legally purchased by family members. e students were trading and selling the marijuana at their elementary school. Studies have also shown that marijuana plays a signicant role in car accidents. I am also gravely concerned that medical marijuana will have a negative impact on our business community. In other states, storefront marijuana dispensaries have become magnets for crime, and other commercial businesses do not want to be located in the vicinity of the dispensaries. According to statistics from Denver, the city recorded 7,000 reported crimes within 1,000 feet of its medical marijuana dispensaries in the rst six months for 2012 and 2013. Additionally, permitting establishments to sell marijuana for medical treatment purposes may impact nearby residential property sales. Data from Colorado indicates homeowners are trying to move away from regions where marijuana has been legalized, and home sales are dropping. Without clear guidelines for enforcement or even appropriate regulation, this amendment may create more problems that it intends to alleviate. I encourage our business community, family and homeowners to vote against this proposal amendment. Dennis Strow, Williston Chief of Police Chief Strow Says No to Legalizing Marijuana

According to the inspector general, 26 VA facilities are now under investigation for disgraceful mismanagement. In Florida, which is home to almost 2 million veterans, we have widespread and disturbing reports of wait lists, backlogs, misplaced or lost records, and rampant malpractice in our St. Petersburg, Miami and Gainesville VA medical centers. In recent months, I have been working with U.S. Rep. Je Miller, R-Pensacola, on legislation that would lead to accountability at the VA by allowing the VA secretary to have the authority he needs to re incompetent middle-level managers. Its the same kind of RUBIO: Hold the VA to AccountWashington D.C. Congressman Ted Yoho (R-FL-03) sent a letter to Secretary Eric Shinseki of the Department of Veterans Aairs asking him for his resignation. Congressman Yoho gave a brief statement following the mailing of the letter: e decision to ask Secretary Shinseki to step down does not come lightly. I have a great amount of respect for his military service. However, there is a sacred trust between a veteran and the nation they risked their lives to protect. Ensuring that our veterans receive the care they need should be the foundation upon which the entire organization is built. e misconduct that has occurred at the VA broke that trust, and we owe it to our veterans to ensure accountability and justice. Other Florida House members signing the letter asking the VA Secretary to step down were: Steve Southerland, Dennis Ross, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Richard Nugent. Congressman Ted Yoho serves on the Foreign Aairs and Agriculture Committees. He represents North Floridas 3rd Congressional DistrictYoho Asks For Shinsekis Resignation Around the Nature Coast Guardian ad Litem TrainingSchool will be out soon and families will be taking vacations, going to amusement parks and spending time together having fun.

Last week, the House passed this legislation overwhelmingly by a 390-33 vote. With such bipartisan consensus clearly behind our bill, and with the added support of my colleague from Florida, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, I attempted to call it up for a vote in the Senate. Unfortunately this eort was blocked by another senator. Over this Memorial Day holiday, I encourage people to let their senators know why action must be taken to hold people accountable for the mistreatment of our veterans. Current law obstructs this accountability by forbidding the ring of negligent and incompetent VA ocials, which is why my legislation is so important. As we reect this weekend on all those who have lost their lives in defense of freedom, let us reect, too, on those who have returned home. Sacrice does not end on the battleeld but continues on for a lifetime. To honor that sacrice, we must come together to demand the dignity our veterans deserve.
6A WES 3rd Graders Put Spotlight on Florida Agriculture Yes, President Machen, agriculture is important to Floridaby Lisa Statham Posteraro with Sally rockmorton Moo! Baaaa! Quack, quack! Oink! e whole barnyard was singing on Tuesday night, May 6th, as the Williston Elementary School 3rd grade classes performed songs and dances to an oldfashioned country hoedown entitled Farm Life, directed by music teacher Sally rockmorton. Each number performed (singing and dancing) featured farmers and their wives, cows, pigs, cute hens with their cocky rooster as well as Lil Bo Peep searching for her lost sheep. e PTO program was held in the schools multipurpose room (MPR). ere are so many classes, rockmorton divided the grade into Group A the classes of Laurie Helgerud, Renai Sparrow, Mary Guinsler, Courtney Edwards and Becky Ward and Group B the classes of Marissa Schultz, Kathy Brewington, Michelle Ruiz, Cindy Hiter and Rowena Rivera. Miss Riveras students also played along on the colored bells to Somewhere Over the Rainbow as Dorothy of Oz sat and watched. e music was adapted from E-I-E-I-Oops by John Jacobson, and rockmorton wrote the script. A special thanks goes out to Snows Country Market in Beverly Hills, Florida, for providing the backdrop. Of course, as with all productions in the MPR at WES, volunteer Peggy Brooks completed the set for the play, a creative masterpiece! As always, the other special area teachers and aides assisted in the practice times as well as the night of the performances. e 3rd graders and all those proud folks in the audience surely had fun as they celebrated Farm Life in Williston! Checking out his cute chicks is Rooster Mason Davis. Those chicks are Tiany Flores, Jackelyn Gorostieta, Marium Chowdhury, Madison Domenico, Samantha Flores, Saniaya Agosto and Ashley Gaspar. They sang and danced to the song Cute Chicks. A couple of Hee-Haw Time segments brought back memories of the corny joke-telling of the old TV show of the same name. In the background we see Emmalee Woodard as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz as Jacob Campbell, Thackery Lord, Evelyn Martinez, Ansley Penney, Ashley Kline and Elizabeth Hagan join in to sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Other numbers included a dance to Great Big Hoedown and Ham It Up. Yep, The Whole Barnyard is Singing!

Bronson High School defeated Class 4A Interlachen 20-14 and Williston 8-0 to remain undefeated in four quarters of play. Williston defeated Interlachen 28-0. Each of the three teams played for a half. Spring football is aimed at giving coaches a look at their players and oering players a chance to win a starting spot on the team. Bronson had been scheduled to play St. Francis Catholic High School on ursday night, but St. Francis cancelled. Coach Cameron Porch had played his high school ball at Interlachen and was able to secure a spot for his team in their spring classic. e Eagles used a power running game behind David Dees, Gary Mitchell, Brian Sheppard, Montrez Jackson, Patrick VanPatten, Bobby Florence, Brandon Partain and quarterback Jason Ranalli to move the ball. Aggressive defense stopped Williston and Interlachen. Its great to know when you dont play great, you can still win, Porch told his team afterward. You beat the almighty county rival and a Class 4A school. e county rival was perennial power Williston. Bronson is the smallest school in Levy County that elds a football team. In the Red Devils romp over Interlachen, Red Devil Brian Williams scored from 15 yards out, quarterback Paul Battles scored from 45 yards and passed to Malik Latson for 2 points; Battles passed to Ted Donald for a touchdown and Justice White scored from 9 yards out on a run. Keith Hardy ran for the 2 point conversion. Williston used speed in its run game to outgun Interlachen. But it bogged down against a stubborn Bronson defense that refused to give ground. e Eagles would bend, but refused to break. Ranalli powered his way for Bronsons only score against Williston behind a talented oensive line that showed considerable power. Mitchell was hit on the 2-point conversion run, but recovered, lowered his helmet and scored. In the Interlachen game, Bronson drove 70 yards to score on a 6-yard run by Sheppard in the rst quarter. Dees ran for the 2-point conversion. A deep pass by Interlachen late in the rst quarter and the extra point made the score 8-7. It looked like a battle could be shaping up. But Bronson was just getting warmed up. e Eagles drove 75 yards to score on a Partain run from 10 yards out. Bronson recovered an Interlachen fumble on its next possession quickly converting the turnover into points. Dees took a pitch from Ranalli and ran 49 yards for a touchdown. e 2-point conversion failed. Interlachen scored on its next play, a deep touchdown pass that Bronson failed to cover. With the score 20-14, time was running out for Interlachen. When Bronson got the ball back, the Eagles ran out the remaining minute on the clock and emerged the winner. Porch said he will correct the problems with the defensive secondary using seven-onseven drills. Bronson defenders in the secondary didnt appear to be assigned to anyone when Interlachen sent out wide receivers. Porch said they were focused on the quarterback instead of covering the receivers. Interlachens rst passing touchdown was the result of a coaching error, Porch said. Bronson had three eighth graders defending the pass and none made an attempt to knock the ball down, even though all three were standing around the receiver. But Porch said he was extremely proud of the team. ey worked hard during the o season to get stronger. Its a complete team of guys willing to do the dirty work, Porch said. Were a team that works out ve days a week. Bronson had a good season last year and built on their successes. e oensive and defensive lines are mostly seniors. I think we controlled the ball on both sides, Porch said.Bronson Football Team Emerges Undefeated In Interlachen Spring Classic Bronson runner Brian Dees gets excellent blocking as he races around left end to give the Eagles a big gain.

Fugate said the rejection of Barrons motion probably didnt end his employment, in his view. Fugate said it could be argued that the commission had actually extended his contract for another year by failing to pass a motion that terminated his contract. Fugate suggested commissioners adopt a motion to not negotiate the terms and conditions of Gays contract and not to extend the contract. Commissioners approved the motion unanimously. Fugate said it was his opinion the second motion was enough to deny Gay 20 weeks of severance pay, but he also said the city would have to wait to hear from Gays attorney on the issue. City Clerk Mary Ellzey was appointed as interim city manager until Gays replacement can be found. Ellzey will technically start her new job on Friday, even though city employees dont work that day. ats because Gays contract extends through ursday. Ellzey wont receive additional pay. She has been interim manager at least once before when a previous city manager left the employ of the city. Commissioners Betty Walker and Chris Jones oered the sharpest criticism of Gay. Gay had lled out his self-evaluation sheets by listing the 5th amendment as his answer to all the evaluation questions. Walker said she wondered if Gay was trying to hide something he had done wrong by claiming the right to avoid selfincrimination by not answering the questions. Gay responded that he didnt mean that at all. In his six month evaluation, Gay said he had given himself a perfect rating. He had rated himself a perfect 5 on all the questions he was asked on the self-evaluation. He said its never smart to give low grades on a self-evaluation because it can come back to haunt you later if a future employer wants to know what was meant by the low grades. He said claiming the Fifth Amendment accomplished the same thing. But Walker said it made the task of evaluating Gay all the more dicult. It is hard to review you when you have submitted to us that you plead the fth on every question which leaves me with an uneasy feeling that something criminal has happened or you are a part of, especially after getting the denition of pleading the fth, Walker wrote in her evaluation. We are not here for criminal action, but for an evaluation. She raised the same issue in the oral evaluation of Gay at the meeting. Commissioner Chris Jones said he discovered Gay had been telling city employees that loose lips sink ships, which he interpreted as meaning Gay was advocating secrecy in city government. He said he wouldnt tolerate a city manager advocating secrecy in a public government. Gay said he wasnt advocating secrecy. He said its just an old military expression. But Jones saw it dierently. I refuse to sit back and not acknowledge that that took place, Jones said after the meeting. Jones said he wrestled with the question of whether to vote to keep Gay in his job and went so far as to consult two ministers and pray about it. Ultimately he said he felt he had to vote against Gay keeping his job. Its nothing personal, he said. Jones said he heard other comments from citizens in the community about statements Gay had made. He said he didnt ask those citizens to come to the meeting. He wanted to keep civility in the discussion, but said he would bring them forward if it became necessary. ere is some disturbing stu, Jones said. Commissioner Teresa Barron took the opposite view of Gay, describing him as possibly the best city manager she has worked with since taking oce. She appeared shocked when her motion to renew Gays contract was rejected 3-2. Commissioner Rollin Hudson supported the motion. His main objection had been to 20 weeks of severance pay. Barron amended her motion to reduce the amount of severance pay to four weeks, consistent with the re chief and police chief. But the motion still failed. You all are backing the city up, Barron responded. Icer Roberts said the city should have set up an action plan for Gay to follow after his six month evaluation that would have told him what he was doing wrong and how to correct his behavior. I dont want our leaders to make decisions o an emotional cu and personal dierences, Roberts said. Hudson said the six month evaluation by Jones had been written clearly and concisely and left no doubt as to what Gay was doing wrong and what needed to be corrected. Gay promised he would be heard from again at the June 3 workshop at Tommy Usher Center where the county commission and city commission will meet to discuss whether the county should grant the city a license for an Advance Life Support non-transport truck. e county got their way didnt they, Gay said, implying that county politics gured into the commissions decision not to renew his contract for another year. Gay had been a vocal advocate for the ALS non-transport truck and felt he had drawn the ire of county commissioners speaking on behalf of the city. He said he would reveal facts and gures at the June 3 workshop.Chieand Commission Gives City Manager His Walking Papers continued from page 1A
By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterEvery Memorial Day the surviving daughters of former Bronson mayor and businessman Buren Brice and his wife Anzonetta gather on a hill at Rosemary Cemetery in Bronson to remember their parents and other family members buried under stately oak trees. e family shares fond memories about their departed family members and eats a light breakfast before taking on the job of doing spring cleaning around the graves, a job made easier by the fact that it is accomplished annually. Buren and Anzonetta Brice owned a crate factory and manufactured crates for Coca Cola, R.C. Cola and other companies. In its heyday, the company employed about 200 people and had a day and night shift. It was located where B.K. Cypress currently does business. Ada Marie Keeton, one of the couples three daughters, was the chief storyteller at the Rosemary Cemetery gathering. Her sisters Libby Barr and Ginny Allen were there with her daughter Amanda Allen and anc Charlie Burcheld, and Keetons husband Jim and their son James. e fourth daughter, Margaret Brice Akins, passed away from cancer at age 49 and is buried among family members on the hilltop plot. Her daughter, Rebecca Hood and son JJ were among those cleaning up the gravesites. Ada Marie Keeton said her father was instrumental in the creation of a municipal water system for Bronson and its street lighting. He was also instrumental in building what is now the Dogan Cobb Municipal Building, formerly Bronson City Hall. e family has many notable ancestors. Her grandfather Frank Marshburn was a farmer, postmaster and State Representative for Levy County back when each county in Florida had its own state representative. She recalled that he wrote a letter to her grandmother from overseas during World War I noting he saw one of those ying machines for the rst time. He was referring to an airplane in the 1917 letter. Keeton also remembered another family story about her grandfather. When he was six years old, Frank Marshburn fell from the third story of their family home and was in a coma. His future mother-in-law, Anzonetta Epperson, prayed over him for three days and was present when he awakened from the coma. She and her husband, former Sen. William Jordan Epperson, the great grandparents of Keeton and her sisters, are buried in e Old Cemetery next to the former Bronson High School. e Old Cemetery has more than one distinguished former member of the Bronson community. W.A. Shands, who founded Shands Hospital in Gaivesville, is buried at the cemetery. e headstone for his grave is broken and Keeton would like to have it repaired. Many of the graves are in good shape due in large part to the work of people like Keeton and her family, but there are a fair number of graves in both cemeteries that are unattended. e old cemetery next to the former Bronson High School does not have a sign indicating its name. Everyone calls it e Old Cemetery. e Journal would be indebted if someone in the community could give us the name of the cemetery. It is a beautiful cemetery, framed by aging cedar trees. e graves of a number of Confederate Civil War veterans can be found in the cemetery.Bronson Family Gathers for Memorial Day at Rosemary Cemetery The daughters of Buren and Anzonetta Marshburn Brice gather with family members every Memorial Day to share memories and clean up grave sites. From the left are Charlie Burcheld and his anc Amanda Allen, her mother Ginny Brice Allen, Jim Keeton, his wife Ada Marie Brice Keeton, Libby Brice Barr and Jim and Ada Maries son, James Keeton.

On Saturday, May 17, 2014 members of AMVETS Post 88 met at the Gainesville Fisher House and presented checks totaling $10,000 to the organization. e group was made up of AMVETS, Sons of AMVETS, Ladies Auxiliary 88 and Riders 88 who all work together at Post 88 in support of our Veterans who each donated $2,500. e Fisher House Project has been a charity which Post 88 had previously donated $10,000 and was very proud they were able to meet their goal of an additional $10,000 for the house in time for Fisher Houses Grand Opening. In so doing they were one of a few contributors to receive the designation of Honor Guard. On Memorial Day May 26 members of AMVETS Post 88 met at the Rosemary Cemetery in Bronson, Florida to honor those who served our country in the past. Memorial Day is not about a 3-day weekend, but rather about reecting on those who have given to their country the ultimate sacrice; their lives some while in battle, others through the hands of time. All have passed which we all will do at one time, but many, much earlier than they planned. All we ask is that not only on Memorial Day but on every waking day each and every one of us has, that we thank a veteran near or far for the freedoms that we all take for granted on a daily basis.AMVETS Post 88 Honors Veterans AMVETS Post 88 donated $10,000 to Fisher House in Gainesville. Photo courtesy of the Veterans Administration.As you walk through some cemeteries, especially during the Memorial Day events, you may notice that certain gravesites have coins laying on them, left by others who visited the grave. e coins have distinctive meaning for being left on the graves of the men or women who gave their lives while in the military. Dierent coins mean dierent things and are used to convey a message to the deceased soldiers family. e coin says someone has visited the grave to pay respect and more. Leaving a penny means that someone has visited the grave. A nickel says that the person leaving the nickel and the deceased trained at boot camp together. A dime means you served with the deceased in some capacity. A quarter says the person leaving the quarter was with the soldier when he/ she was killed. Tradition says that money left on gravesites in national cemeteries and state veterans cemeteries is collected eventually and used to maintain the cemetery or pay for burial costs for indigent soldiers. During the politically divisive Vietnam War, this practice became common carrying more meaning in that you had visited the grave rather than visited the soldiers family which at times devolved into uncomfortable arguments over the politics of the war. Some Vietnam veterans left coins as a down payment to buy their fallen comrades a beer or play a hand of cards when they were nally reunited. So now you know more about what you saw or will see when you visit the graves of our fallen soldiers on Memorial Day. It is the day to commemorate those who gave their all to keep us free and to maybe leave a message that you cared enough to visit and leave a memento to the family.Why Are Coins Left on Military Tombstones? Coins left a message on the grave of Air Force Captain William Larry Martin. Photo courtesy of Anna Elkins, Post 88. John Meeks, Levy County Commissioner and member of Sons of AMVETS Squadron 88, spoke to a large group at Rosemary Cemetery Monday to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrice and served with honor.

All the pre-game hype meant nothing now. It had faded like a cheap perfume upon the neck of this epic struggle. e nish loomed just ahead. It would be an up or down call, with many lives hanging in the balance. I will never forget the last few moments; the agony wrought in my boys face as he clung desperately to his sisters pant leg, intent on staving o his inevitable defeat, refusing to admit the speed and strength accompanying her ve-year age advantage had proven insurmountable. With only a few feet left she lunged for the prize, determined to see new doors opened for us all. It was at that very moment that the boys grip on her pants paid o and her jeans did the plumbers slide. She hesitated. It was the only break he needed. He climbed up her back and slapped that little elevator button before she could even blush. A warm magical light appeared. A resounding Ding lled the hall. David had slain Goliath! To my surprise several adults were crowded inside the elevator playing another game. ey cautiously guarded their little corners and stared at the little display panel like their elevation depended on their concentration. No one dared break focus to acknowledge us. I thought to myself, Whats with those silly elevator buttons? A better question might be, Whats with us silly people? Could it be sometimes we get so caught up in our own little challenges that we forget to run the bigger race God has called us to? Ill admit, elevator buttons do have a certain magnetic appeal, but surely we could tear away for just a few seconds to say hello to that living soul next to us. You know, the one Jesus died for? Ive been guilty myself. At times Ive just lumped people into categories based on whatever criteria I have handy, and overlook the fact there are real people in those sacks of skin. Yes, somewhere in there is a real person, thinking thoughts, making plans, feeling pain, facing struggles just like me. If only I could see people the way God does! Maybe Id have a little more compassion on that rude person at the cash register, especially if I knew what they had just gone through. Surely Id be more willing to oer a smile if I realized it might be the only thing that will pull them through the day. e truth is I should just do it anyway. Someone might say, Why should I risk any part of myself for a rude stranger? Its much easier to just crawl up with an us four and no more attitude. Have you considered what a huge chance God took on us? e Bible says, ( But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us Romans 5:8 NKJV) Jesus took a great risk in extending His love to me when I didnt deserve it, and it has cost Him dearly. I dont know why He did it. Love is just what He does. Its who He is. In the end, Love is all that matters. But anyway one day God will punch that great elevator button in the sky for the nal up or down call. I pray well all be ready with hearts that have accepted and given His unconditional love; hearts that have weathered the risks and that are still glowing brighter than any old elevator button. I also pray well each be taking something with us on this last ride, the souls His love has won for Christ through us. Yes, I hope things will be looking up for us all that day.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received from samples taken February 25, 2014, when averaged with the quarterly results from the past year, show that our system exceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant levels (MCL), for Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter (g/L) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 139.36 g/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 g/L, the average level of HAA5s over the last year was 103.24 g/L. What should I do? Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion. What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. What is being done? This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: We are flushing the system. We are reducing the chlorine residual to help reduce DBPs. We are increasing sampling for DBPs. We will inform you when additional samples show levels of DBPs below the MCLs. We have an engineer evaluating the situation. He will be making a recommendation in the coming weeks. There are several options available to us. For more information, please contact the town clerk, Connie Caldwell, at Town Hall (352) 486-4766. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).

He brought this rooster down to the Rocky Hammock Ranch and turned him loose with my hens. I ordered some feed to be delivered. When the driver brought the feed I was at my house eating lunch but he knew where to put the feed in the barn. When he got the feed unloaded he stopped by my house. He was mad and was acussing, e next time that rooster jumps me Im goin to kill him. H pulled his breeches leg up saying look what that @&^%$ done to me! From the top of his shoe to his knee there were holes punched in his leg. Man, you should have killed him today, I would have, I said. e next day I was down at the barn welding on a bushhog. I was on my knees and all of a sudden that #^$%& rooster was on my shoulder spurring my neck. I threw the rod holder down and fought the rooster o and he ran out into the yard, stopped and crowed. He made a mistake when he stopped because I had gone to my truck to get my gun and while he was crowing I shot him graveyard dead. en I threw him over the fence!
