Kindergartners in Angela Loys class at Bronson Elementary School learned how to build a buttery garden last week. e garden will attract butteries when it has grown to maturity. e idea of growing a garden that will bring butteries to their yard at home was an exciting idea for the students.

Members of the public have generally been allowed to make comments during Bronson Town Council e Levy County Courthouse was evacuated Tuesday while the county commission meeting was in session due to a re alarm. e suspected cause of the alarm was air conditioning work in what used to be the tangible property tax area of the property appraisers oce, but Property Appraiser Osborne Barker said he hasnt been told what caused the alarm. County employees and members of the public were ushered out of the courthouse by security ocers even though there was no smoke, and no re trucks arrived on the scene. One reporter wandered back into the courthouse when it became apparent there was no re and was immediately ushered out by security people working for the sheris oce. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell was asked why some of the county commissioners were left in the building with security ocers while the public and press were forced to leave in the re emergency. Were very disposable, Bell said, tongue in cheek. Bell left the courthouse when the alarm sounded. ere was no re or smoke associated with the re alarm. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners Tuesday instructed the road department to investigate complaints led by two residents living on a limestone road who complained about a gorge forming at the base of a hill after heavy rains and the countys alleged reluctance to pave the road. e county says the road has not met the requirements to be paved. Bonnie Tedder and Michael Kearny said residents have experienced at tires after hitting the gorge in the road. ey said they have asked for years to have NE 131st Ave. paved but without success and the road still had not made the county commissions road-paving list, a complaint frequently heard by commissioners. e board uses a formula to decide whose road gets paved. We are asking, were begging, were pleading, Tedder said. I dont know what its going to take. Commission Chairman Gives Consultant Tongue LashingBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterFrustrated by mistakes and fumbled opportunities, Levy County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell Tuesday said a private consultant was guilty of blatant neglect for failing to follow the boards instructions to negotiate for a better bid price on replacing a failing septic tank drain eld at an Inglis home. Commissioners are unhappy with the performance of Jordan and Associates, a consultant hired to administer a federal Community Development Block Grant that is paying for the rehabilitation of a septic tank drain eld at the home of Roberto and Deborah Tarafa near Inglis. is is the same thing, through the blatant neglect of the project; the lack of follow through, said Bell, giving Ronald Vanzant, president of Jordan and Associates a brief tongue lashing. Vanzant was ordered by commissioners to rebid the project a third time if he cant negotiate a better bid price from the two companies that submitted bids earlier. Richardson Site Prep Inc. of Fort White submitted a complete bid of $79,466.77 and Staley Construction, Inc. of Chieand submitted a partial bid of $36,900. Commissioners are interested in nding out whether Richardson Site Prep will come down on its price or if Staley Construction will bid all 10 items in the package instead of just the rst ve. e last set of bids for the project produced no bidders. No one expressed an interest in doing the By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners Tuesday voted unanimously to place a question on the November ballot asking voters if they favor giving new and existing businesses property tax exemptions to create jobs. Chairman Ryan Bell has mentioned the ballot question a number of times in commission meetings and won board approval at the April 22 meeting to have County Attorney Anne Bast Brown research the tax exemption question for a future ballot. e resolution she authored was adopted by the board. It says giving new businesses ad valorem tax exemptions would act as a nancial incentive to relocate to Levy County and oer existing businesses an opportunity to expand. e idea behind the incentives is job creation. e county currently has no tax incentives in place to attract businesses to the county or promote expansion of existing businesses. e ballot question will state: Shall the Board of County Commissioners of Levy County be authorized to grant, pursuant to Section 3, Article VII of the State Constitution, property tax exemptions to new businesses and expansions of existing businesses that are expected to create new, full-time jobs in Levy County. e commission would be allowed to exempt Bronson Council Revises Public Comment Rules for Council MeetingsMegan Berger of the Levy, Dixie, Gilchrist Soil and Water Conservation District stands with six students who completed their buttery gardens.

Sentencings from the BenchCircuit Judge Stanley Gris substituted for Circuit Judge William Davis on May 28 and sentenced a man in an assault case to three years in state prison. Davis presided over a number of unrelated sentencing hearings the previous week, most resulting in jail time or probation. Jose Angel Gomez 38, was sentenced by Gris to three years in prison and was given 281 days credit for time served in the county jail after pleading no contest to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and manufacturing marijuana. e Levy County Sheris oce said Gomez, who lived under the name Hector Soto, was an undocumented alien living in Morriston when he started an altercation with a man living next door to him and hit him in the face with the barrel of a shotgun. He then attempted to kidnap the mans wife after disabling her husband. He dragged her back to his home but released her after she begged for mercy. Deputies found a marijuana plant growing in Gomezs home. Davis sentenced Seth Lyons 28, Reddick, to 90 days in jail and he was given 57 days credit for time served in the county jail on drunken driving and drug charges. Lyons was stopped coming into Bronson because his vehicle left its lane of trac several times. He failed roadside sobriety tests and refused to take a Breathalyzer test. A deputy found three bags of marijuana and a small scale in his pants, according to court records. Davis also sentenced the following: Walter Allen Aldridge 45, Morriston, was sentenced to 270 days in the Levy County Jail and given 57 days credit for time served in the county jail for violating the requirement to register online as a sex oender. Sex oenders are required to register their status online with the sheris oce that has jurisdiction over them. Information such as his place of residence and birthdate must be included. He failed to register his Facebook email account. Frank Willis Lamar 37, Trenton, was sentenced time served for violating his probation on drug charges. He served 60 days in jail and was given credit for those 60 days. In November of 2012 he was stopped for speeding and was found in possession of one gram of marijuana and four loose Diazepam tablets. He said he has a prescription for the tablets. Davis reinstated his probation. Sherry Lynn Storey 37, Old Town, was sentenced to 14 months probation and ordered to undergo a mental health screening after pleading no contest to carrying a concealed weapon. Security ocers stopped Storey in the Wal-Mart store in Chieand carrying four knives and a Taurus .380 pistol. She had no weapons permit. She pleaded no contest to carrying a concealed weapon. Paul Anthony Wright 41, Orlando, was sentenced to a year and a week in state prison and given credit for 105 days served in the county jail after pleading no contest to forgery charges. Wright entered Drummond Community Bank and handed over a counterfeit check for cashing. It was written against the account of HJ Interiors doing business as Carpet One Floor and Home. e teller was suspicious of the signature and contacted the supervisor. Wright asked for the check back. He said he would cash it at his wifes bank. Wright was positively identied by the teller when she examined his license and recognized him. Dixie County Busts Another Marijuana Grow House For the second time in a week, deputies encountered an indoor marijuana grow operation in the Old Town area. Friday morning May 30, investigators received a call from an individual reporting suspicious activity at a piece of property on NE 544 Street. A deputy was dispatched to the location shortly after noon on Friday and when he arrived he could smell the strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the home. He then notied investigators who arrived shortly after. When the investigators arrived, they too could smell the strong odor of marijuana and noticed other indicators of an indoor grow operation. e residence was secured; no one was home at the time. Deputies remained on scene while investigators returned to Cross City to obtain a search warrant for the premises. While obtaining the warrant, the homeowners returned home and were detained on the premises until investigators returned with the search warrant. Once the warrant was executed on the home, investigators and deputies discovered a small indoor marijuana grow operation in the south end of the home. Other items of paraphernalia were detected and prepackaged marijuana was found in a chest freezer in the dining area. Shawn E. orp, 36, of Old Town, was arrested for the Growing and Manufacturing of Marijuana, Possession with Intent to Sell/Deliver and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. orp is considered a multi-state oender and has multiple arrests in the past. He is currently being held in the Dixie County Jail under a $128,000.00 bond. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris oce, Cross City, Fla. Dixie County Drug Paramours In Jail TogetherJermaine Freeman of Dixie County was arrested by Dixie County Sheris oce for attempting to bribe an investigator in a pending drug case. Jermaine is the live-in paramour of Patricia Lord who was arrested also after deputies and investigators executed a search warrant at their residence. During the search warrant deputies and investigators discovered that Lord was apparently maintaining the couples business in the sale of illegal drugs. Investigators seized various items of evidence linked to the couples drug transactions to include: Marijuana, Crack Cocaine, Powder Cocaine, Scales, Currency Counter, Drug Paraphernalia and approximately $15,000.00 in cash. Lord, 35 years of age from Old Town has been arrested for Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Sale, Possession of More than 20 grams of Marijuana, Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Sale, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Resisting an Ocer without Violence. Lord has now joined Freeman in the Dixie County Jail where she is awaiting her initial court appearance. During the May 29th search at the home ocers discovered several thousand dollars and various amounts of cocaine and marijuana. But there is more. On the night of May 29, a plainclothes Sheris deputy carried one of Lords minor children to the home so that some of the childs clothing could be retrieved. While they were in the home gathering clothing and personal eects, someone began to ring the doorbell. e deputy answered the door and was greeted by James Tuten, 52, from Old Town. e deputy then asked Tuten what he needed. Tuten said he was there for fty-dollars of crack cocaine. e deputy then agreed and Tuten began to retrieve his money from his pocket. e deputy identied himself and arrested Tuten for the Attempted Purchase of Crack Cocaine. e deputy summoned another patrol unit to transport Tuten while he continued to assist the child with their personal eects. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris Oce James TutenPatricia Lord Shawn E.

3A Washington, D.C. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today called on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (DNV) to allow a vote on S. 2013, the VA Management and Accountability Act of 2014, a bill that would empower whomever may replace Secretary Shinseki with complete authority to re or demote VA Senior Executive Service (SES) or equivalent employees based on performance. Rubio is the Senates original sponsor of the bill, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives with the support of 165 Democrats. e bill is currently co-sponsored by ten Senate Democrats: Senators Bill Nelson (D-FL), Mark Warner (D-VA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Jean Shaheen (DNH), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Al Franken (D-MN), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and John Walsh (D-MT). Amid recent revelations of widespread, systemic problems at the VA, Rubio wrote a letter to Reid today requesting the common sense, bipartisan legislation be brought to the Senate oor immediately so that Congress may take an important rst step toward bringing much needed accountability to the VA and providing our veterans with the care they deserve. As the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, you and you alone control what legislation is brought before the Senate for a vote. In this important role, you can make a vital dierence in the reforms that are needed to improve the quality of care our nations heroes receive, wrote Rubio. As you know, the House of Representatives recently passed the common sense and bi-partisan S. 2013 e VA Management and Accountability Act of 2014 with the support of 165 Democrats. at legislation is now before the Senate for consideration and is sponsored by ten Senate Democrats, including the Senators from Arkansas, California, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia, added Rubio. eir backing means there is currently a strong bi-partisan support for this legislation which would bring accountability to VA and empower the leadership therein to make the same hiring and ring decisions you enjoy as a United States Senator with your own sta. is legislation alone will not solve all the problems at the VA. Problems which, to be fair, existed before President Obama took oce. But this legislation will take an important step forward in helping reform this broken government institution, continued Rubio. It might also help restore some faith in the Senates ability to achieve even incremental reform to a government that too many Americans believe is no longer capable of even the most basic functions. e full text of the letter is below. June 3, 2014 e Honorable Harry Reid Majority Leader United States Senate U.S. Capitol Washington, D.C. 20510 Dear Majority Leader Reid, I know you share my disgust with the recent revelations at the U.S. Department of Veterans Aairs (VA) and the shameful way in which a few employees mistreated Americas heroes. e problem is so pervasive in the VA that an internal audit found that wait times for veterans appointments were falsied and manipulated at 64% of VA health facilities. As the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, you and you alone control what legislation is brought before the Senate for a vote. In this important role, you can make a vital dierence in the reforms that are needed to improve the quality of care our nations heroes receive.

County and City Agree to Begin Discussions on Chieand ALS Truck continued from page 1AChieand paramedics currently can give basic life support to dying or critically ill patients, but they cannot save their lives in many cases without the equipment and medicines to give advanced life support care at the scene of the medical crisis, according to city re ocials. Interim City Manager Mary Ellzey, City Attorney Norm Fugate, County Coordinator Fred Moody and County Attorney Anne Bast Brown along with City Commissioner Teresa Barron and County Commissioner Ryan Bell will serve on a committee that will attempt to iron out dierences between the two boards and lay the foundations for an agreement between the city and county. Brown was adamant that the city will not be able to use the $206,000 in county reghting funds it receives annually from the county commission to respond to medical calls with the Advanced Life Support truck, even though city reghters already answer medical calls as rst responders. She said re funds cant be used for medical calls by the city. She said rst responders are not considered medical personnel. Levy County Public Safety Director David Knowles indicated that Nabors Giblin & Nickerson, a Tallahassee law rm specializing in municipal law, would be consulted during the discussions about the ALS unit. e law rm has acted as the countys consultant in writing special assessments that fund emergency medical services and re services. Four of the ve county commissioners and all ve city commissioners expressed an interest in moving forward with discussions. It wasnt clear whether County Commissioner Danny Stevens of Williston was interested in moving forward or if his response was just inaudible with the weak sound system set up by the city. Stevens drew a loud rebuke from the crowd when he suggested the conicts of the past between the county commission and city commission might not allow the two boards to work together on the ALS issue. What guarantees do we have that we can work together? Stevens said. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said the two boards can cooperate. eres been some past history, but I think things can be worked out, he said. City Commissioner Chris Jones agreed that the past should be put behind both boards. I think we should move forward with whatever benets the citizens, Jones said. City Commissioner Betty Walker agreed. We need to put this behind and move forward, she said. Stevens questioned whether the county could aord to fund the Chieand ALS Unit. Chieand commissioners said it wouldnt cost the county anything. At some point we have to be real; there will be a cost there, Stevens said. Chieand has ve paramedics it plans to use on the ALS truck. e truck is already in service as a rst response vehicle. Commissioner Teresa Barron said fundraising will pay for the $20,000 in equipment. e city wants the county to reimburse Chieand Fire Rescue for any drugs and supplies it uses on the ALS unit. e county already reimburses the city for any basic life-support supplies it uses on the truck, according to Barron. But the truck lacks the medical drugs and advanced life support equipment that city ocials say could save lives in emergencies. Stevens said he was also concerned about the possibility of the county losing its ability to collect a special assessment for emergency medical services if the county is called to task for allowing Chieand to use re funds for medical purposes. Fugate said the questions Stevens was raising could not be answered at Tuesdays joint workshop of the two boards. e issues would have to be resolved as the process proceeds. If the two commissions tell us to make it happen, obviously we wont jeopardize the assessments, Fugate said. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said its not good enough for the city to say Gainesville has a similar arrangement with Alachua County to operate ALS unit. He said that doesnt mean Chieand should be able to do it here. e scope of the work is still vague to me, he said. Bell said he wants to know who will control the narcotics on the Chieand ALS truck and if Chieand paramedics will ride with county paramedics for six months before they are allowed to operate an ALS truck on their own. He said the paramedic ride-along policy is something the county requires. is will be a partnership. It will be like getting married, Bell said. He added that the county has to be careful not to duplicate services. e county operates two roving ALS non-transport units that respond to calls throughout the county. Chieand wants its ALS unit stationed permanently in Chieand to save lives. Sheris dispatch records indicate the Chieand rst responders arrive at medical emergencies well in advance of the ambulance in most cases because the reghters and paramedics are stationed at the Chieand ambulance station. ey are closer to the action. Bell added that the county needs to get a good handle on what this project will cost. He said anyone who believes its going to be a small project is mistaken. County Commissioner John Meeks twice asked Fire Chief James Harris if the city would be willing to hire its own medical director if the countys medical director, Dr. Christine Van Dillen is unwilling to sign o on allowing Chieand to operate an ALS unit under her license. Harris said he and Barron met with Van Dillen and her medical associates concerning an ALS unit in Chieand and they were in favor of the city taking on the role, but he said he wont know whether the city could assume the cost of hiring its own medical director until he knows what it would cost. Responding to another Meeks question, Harris said the city plans to operate under the county medical director. County Commissioner Chad Johnson said he is not opposed to an ALS truck in Chieand. I certainly know there will be challenges, he said. Johnson said the countys plan to station its seventh ambulance in Fanning Springs will reduce response times. I think there are opportunities to grow, but it will take both sides, he said. Chieand residents left no doubt they wanted the county to authorize an ALS non-transport truck for Chieand. Amelia Cannon said she has lived in Chieand all her life and paid taxes. She said an ambulance has come to her home four times when she had a stroke or thought she was having one. She wondered why the discussions were focusing on money. Is this all about money, or about someones life, she said. Her sister, Madge Reid, also questioned why there was so much focus on money. Goodness people, dont you value life more than that, she said. Katie Granger said the ALS non-transport was an issue too important to get bogged down in little details. Former City Commissioner Sammy Cason said he could remember the time when he worked as a deputy sheri and drove the ambulance. Were just trying to save a few lives, Cason said. We got the best people in the world around here. We need to take care of them. Businesswoman Regina Goss described the ALS truck as a very necessary service. Businessman Terrance Reed, a supporter of the ALS truck, said he hopes that money, politics and pride can be set aside to make a good decision. Figure it out. I know you can, he said. Cinde Green, who favors the ALS truck for Chieand, said she knows the issue is always about money, but she said things should be done dierently in Levy County because our lives are worth more than money. I think anyone that turns this down from this point on should be embarrassed, she said, looking at the ve county commissioners.
4A OPINION Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateFive years ago, I publicly raised questions about Bowe Bergdahls desertion from Blackfoot Company, 1-501 Infantry (Airborne), 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division. A few weeks after his so-called capture in late June 2009, three conicting accounts surfaced: U.S. ocials told the Associated Press Bergdahl had walked o the base with three Afghans; the Taliban claimed on its website that a drunken American soldier had come out of his garrison and into their arms; and Bergdahl claimed in his Taliban hostage video that he had lagged behind a patrol before being captured. I asked on my blog: Were the APs sources mistaken? Or is the disturbing rst account the right one? What about the three Afghans Pfc. Bergdahl reportedly just walked o with after his shift? Who are they? Whats going on? Five years ago, one of the brave soldiers who risked his life to search for Bergdahl answered my questions, and I published his statement on July 20, 2009: I know the story and the accounts that he was drunk or that he was lagging behind on patrol are not true -this soldier planned this move for a long time. He walked o the post with a days supply of water and had written down before that he wanted to live in the mountains. ... He is an embarrassment to everyone who has worn the uniform. After news broke this weekend of President Obamas trade of ve high-level Taliban commanders at Gitmo for Bergdahls freedom, I heard from another soldier who served on the search team. Many of my brothers died because of Bergdahls actions, and this has been a very hard day for all Geronimos, he told me after documenting his proof of service. Other journalists ignored his attempts to get the truth out. My source still holds a highly sensitive position, so you wont see him all over the cable news shows. But he wants all of you to know the hell he and his comrades have been reliving: I was assigned to 1st Platoon of Blackfoot Company, based out of Forward Operating Base (FOB) Salerno in Khost, Afghanistan, he said. Bowes platoon was assigned to conduct security and stability operations out of FOB Sharana and other locations in Paktika. e untold background that led to Bowes situation involves an article and pictures published by Guardian reporter Sean Smith. One of the battalion leaders punished soldiers, including Bergdahl (who had been photographed snoozing in his armored vehicle), with extra guard duty assignments for conducting operations in an unprofessional manner at Outpost MEST (OP MEST). Bergdahl was already disenchanted with the war eort, my source said, and I think the extra duty was the last straw for him. On the morning of June 30, 2009, Bergdahl completed a guard shift, removed his equipment, weapon and sensitive items, and left OP MEST with several Afghan security forces personnel. He took a compass, a couple bottles of water and two knives and his journal. His exact intentions may never be known, but he willingly walked o OP MEST and was secured by enemy forces not long after. My source, who had been up the previous night on a separate raid, was shaken awake on the afternoon Bergdahl disappeared. We were told there was a DUSTWUN (Duty Status Whereabouts Unknown), and to pack for a three-hour assault. We received a brief that Bergdahl was missing, and we were going to get him. ... Sometime after dark we boarded CH-47s to assault an objective thought to contain Bergdahl. We never made it to the landing zone, as the helicopters took very heavy re on approach to the objective and had to divert. e soldiers Focused Targeting Force (FTF) platoon was not told that it was being diverted to OP MEST. When they landed, he said, We thought we were in enemy territory, so I recall my friends and I screaming Vehicles and preparing to engage with the LAW and SMAW-D rockets we carried. We soon realized the lights were from RG-31 and Maxpro MRAPs, friendly vehicles, and de-escalated the situation. e CH-47s had dropped us o at OP MEST and did not relay that information. With that near-disaster over, the soldier recounted: We averaged 18 to 22 kilometers a day on foot, clearing house to house, room to room looking for Bergdahl. ...

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Exclusive: The Story You Havent Yet Heard About Bowe Bergdahls Desertion Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateAt one time, people in India had to get on a waiting list to buy Hindustan Motors Ambassador automobile, even though it was an obvious copy of Britains Morris Oxford of some decades earlier. e reason was simple: the Indian government would not allow cars to be imported to compete with it. e fact that the Ambassador was a copy is hardly an automatic reason for condemnation. e rst Nikon camera was an obvious copy of a German camera called the Contax, and the rst Canon was an obvious copy of the Leica. e dierence is that, over the years, Nikons and Canons rose to become state of the art, during both the era of lm and in the new digital age. Not so the Ambassador car. It was notorious for poor nish and poor handling. But, since it was the only game in town -and town was all of India, people were on waiting lists for it for months, and sometimes even years. By contrast, Nikon and Canons were good cameras from day one and they just got better as the companies that produced them gained more experience. With a highly competitive international market for cameras, they had no choice if they wanted to survive. But the Hindustan Ambassador had no such problem. Only those who bought them had problems. Toward the end of the 20th century, India began to loosen up some of its jungle of rules and regulations that were strangling Indias businesses. ough India is still a long way from a free market, just the relaxing of some of its economic restrictions was enough to promote a higher rate of growth and a substantial reduction in poverty. ey even allowed a Japanese car maker to build cars in India. is resulted in a car called the Maruti, which quickly shot to the top as the most popular car in India. Even more remarkable, it led to some improvements in the Ambassador. A British newspaper said that the Ambassador now had perceptible acceleration. Now that there was competition, the distinguished British magazine e Economist announced, Marutis too are improving, in anticipation of the next invaders. Perhaps the last chapter in the story of the Ambassador has now been written. Hindustan Motors recently announced that it was closing -indenitely -the factory where the Ambassador was built. According to the Wall Street Journal, e company cited low productivity, a critical shortage of funds and a lack of demand for its core product, the Ambassador. Doesnt that sound a little like our post oce? Our post oce, like the Hindustan Ambassador, has had a long run as a government protected monopoly. But just a partial erosion of that monopoly, with the appearance of United Parcel Service and Federal Express, has threatened the viability of the post oce. As for a critical shortage of funds, that has truly gotten critical as the post oce has seen its $15 billion line of credit at the U.S. Treasury shrink to the vanishing point. For years that line of credit allowed the post oces defenders to tell the big lie that it got no subsidy and was costing the taxpayers nothing. I dont know who they thought put that money in the Treasury that the post oce has been borrowing all these years, with no one foolish enough to think that they would ever be either willing or able to pay it back. We could all use a line of credit from which we could get a few billion dollars, here and there, to cover our losses from time to time. But we are not all the post oce. Ironically, India has partially privatized its post oce by letting private companies deliver mail. e government post oces deliveries of mail dropped from 16 billion to less than 8 billion in just six years, even though the population of India was growing. You can always keep anything old, clunky and inecient still in business, if you are willing to pour unlimited amounts of the taxpayers money down a bottomless pit. Hindustan Motors had to shut their doors when they ran out of money. How long will we continue to keep our own version of the Hindustan Ambassador on life support at the expense of the taxpayers, and of captive customers who are not even allowed by law to decide who can put mail in the boxes that the customers bought? omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM The Ambassador and the Post OceLetter to the EditorBy Lynne Rigby Educator PhotographerIts a manifesto of sorts, actually. Bless you if you read all 2800 words. I know its insanely long Brad told me people would disengage, but I couldnt gure out what to cut out. And Im generally very pithy. It took me about 6 weeks to write it. I know my one little voice cant change much, but we, parents and educators, need to band together and change the insanity of the public education system. Dear Governor Scott, Mr. Grin, Mrs. Stewart, David Simmons, Karen Castor Dentel, Mr. Agosto and Mrs. Brouillard and Seminole County School Board Members, I am a parent of ve children in Seminole County Schools aged 4 (VPK) to 16. My husband and I are deeply embedded in this community. We are both successful products of Lake Brantley High School and the middle schools that fed into it. I graduated from e University of Georgia in 1995 and came back to Seminole to teach Kindergarten at Pinecrest and Wekiva; he is currently the pitching coach for the Lake Brantley varsity baseball team. Our ties run deep. We stayed here so our kids would be blessed with a similar educational experience and opportunities. is year has been completely disheartening for us. You see, Ive been okay with FCATshow what you know, I get it. some sort of accountability. at was until this year. My third grade son, Jackson, the fourth of my four boys has had mostly As, a scattering of Bs through his Bear Lake career, much like his brothers. However, he has had the Discovery Education tests added to his school year. I saw his score on DE in rst grade and it was scary low, in the 20s. But he had 1s and his teacher said that she knows him and he was doing ne with nothing to worry about. Same thing in 2nd grade, though, knowing that FCAT was looming, I began to panic a bit. We read out loud together each night through the summer, talked about the books as we read and I believed that that would pay o on the rst DE test of 3rd grade because he was doing really well. I was wrong. His rst DE test was similar to others but now his teachers start panicking because their pay depends on it. He is sent to remedial LEAP and ultimately a math pullout group. All the while, he has mostly As and a few Bs. Disconnect. ats the word that plays over in my head. How can he do all his homework on his own, rarely asking a question, never, ever struggling with any topic and get such a low percentile on a test? en, an epiphany. What is this test? What is the validity of this test? How does it relate to our curriculum? ats something Ive never considered. Ive always walked the company line. I am looking at a print out of Jacksons answers (B, A, A, C, D, etc) and the correct answers (C, D, A, C, B) and what does that tell me? Nothing. It tells me nothing. I cant see the test to see what hes done wrong, to see if the questions are worded well, to see why hes doing poorly. Hes being pulled out of normal classes for remediation because of this DE test, but he has all As and Bs! Hes excelling from a curriculum standpoint, so I, as a teacher, dont even know how to help him at home. We did FCAT practice tests at home, something Ive never done with my older boys who had the same grades but no DE. Shouldnt I, as a 40 year old mom with an education degree, whose current job is to write instructional lessons for adults, be able to take a test for 8 and 9 year olds in a matter of minutes without thought or oh, wait, thats not right?! moments? Yes, I should, but that was not the case.

Jacksons brothers had 4s and 5s on all their FCATs, perhaps a 3 thrown in here and there. All of which I accepted without hesitation. FCAT was no big deal in our house. eyre smart boys, we are involved parents, they have no stress, their lives are good. But now I pause. Did Carson not make it into GEMS because of an inverse operation problem that my mother-in-law, the former LBHS Pre-Calculus teacher, said was awed on the 3rd grade test? e problem that my husband, a Georgia Tech graduate, said that there had to be a typo because the right answer wasnt there? On a THIRD grade problem? Suddenly I want to see my kids tests, see where they went wrong, see what they did right, but parents arent aorded that option and neither are teachers. If the test is truly a good indicator of student ability, then the parents and teachers should be able to see the actual test and the student work to help the students moving forward? Fine. FCAT is over. Its no longer an issue. But the AIR test is coming. What will that bring? Who knows? e teachers dont, the administrators dont, so the kids and parents surely dont know. Oh wait, the state of Utah knows because the state of Florida paid the state of Utah $5.5 million to eld test the test. Whos writing it? And just as important, who is grading it? e educational grapevine says that 5th graders will have 14 hours of testing. Fourteen. at makes me cringe. If you told me that I had to take 14 hours of testing in a two week period, Id shut down. And you want to do that to my 10/11 year old? e mama bear in me starts to come out. at is not developmentally appropriate. Period. Its no dierent than expecting and demanding all children to walk at 10 months; some might be able to do it, but a lot, if not most, will not have the developmental skills to do so successfully. e MCAT is approximately ve hours and ten minutes to get into medical school. And the state of Florida thinks its okay to subject our small children to fourteen hours stressful and strenuous testing? Free response sounds great when you say it fast, but that means that someone or something has to grade that test. A teacher, paid a minimal amount, and a computer will be grading the free response test. If theres a discrepancy, the computer grade takes precedent. Not my childs teacher who knows him and sees him everyday, but a non-human that is looking for scripted answers? is brings us to the elephant in the room. Common Core or e Florida Standards which are aligned to Common Core. e materials remain the same. Jackson has the same text books as his cousin in California. Ive done my research, Im an overresearcher by nature. And again, it all sounds great when you say it fast. It is nice that kids can move on a Friday from New Jersey and go to school in California the following Monday and pick up right where they left o. It sounds awesome when you say that kids are on the same page and well be developing critical thinkers; they will rise to the challenge of more dicult standards. And every kid will be career and college ready at the end of high school and all on the same page? SIGN ME UP. Sure. Walk that political line. Its rhetoric. It sounds fantastic when you gloss over it like that. But lets really look at our implementation of Common Core. Ive seen it rst hand with my third grader this year and to a lesser extent with my older kids. Lets take Jackson, his rst and second grade lessons were based on the older curriculum. is year a new curriculum is thrown in, teach it with delity Seminole County tells them that means that they used only the Pearson materials (you know, the Pearson that has spent nearly $4.4 million in lobbying in recent years) and only Pearson materials, for the rst 12 weeks of the school year. And get this, then well use the FCAT 2.0 which is aligned with the former standards to decide if this group of third graders is worthy of fourth grade placement. Jackson had a passage on a weekly comprehension and vocabulary test that was horribly written. e material was about professional athletes, which is relevant to him since his dad played Major League Baseball. e syntax, however, was a disaster. I typed the whole thing into a grade and reading level decoder and it averaged at 10th grade with all its indicators. For my 8 year old. In fact, I gave it to my gifted 10th grader to read and he looked at it for a minute and tossed it aside because he didnt want to have to really think for the 3rd grade work. To the other extreme, Jackson then has feel and other long e spelling words in late winter/early spring, along with vocabulary like sports and basketball which is in stark contrast to the 10th grade passage about professional sports in October! ere is no rhyme or reason to the materials and curriculum. Its a joke, a joke being played on our kids. On MY KID, Im not cool with that.We have had some amazing teachers at Bear Lake, Teague and Lake Brantley. eyve engaged the kids with creative projects, readers theater, allowed the kids to pursue some topics that interest them, delved deeper into cultural studies. Engaged them. ough the common core standards purport to foster that kind of education, about 90% of the work Jackson brings home is worksheets, done in class and done at home. Everything Ive seen this year is stand-alone, segmented. Nothing is deep, there is no time for kids to even consider what is interesting to them, because youre on page 168 today and you need to get through 170 by tomorrow. ere is nothing engaging about workbooks. Shouldnt our Florida kids learn about things like the Everglades and the delicate ecosystem with our many lakes, springs and oceans or all about hurricanes? ink of the units you could do! ink of how many skills you can conquer with a long unit like that! ink about how engaged kids could be in the process and how meaningful it would be to them! Worksheets could still be used, but just to reinforce skills, not as the entire curriculum. Pearson with delity does not allow time for such things; thats the problem with a nationalized curriculum. Todays public school atmosphere is all about accountability and not about the actual needs of the child. Not everything in education can be quantied; we are dealing with little humans who come into that classroom everyday with dierent backgrounds. Some might not have eaten since lunch yesterday, another couldnt sleep last night because she saw Dad hit Mom through her cracked bedroom door, and thankfully others come into that classroom with every need met, loved, hugged and kissed as they exited Moms car. Teacher pay is being aected by those factors, factors that they cannot control. Art and music teachers are being graded on how well the kids who come to them once every seven days do on their math and language arts FCAT. at is nonsense. e same company who came up with the widely maligned Value Added Model for teachers is writing our new standardized test. at does not exactly elicit waves of condence. You are not programming computers; you cant expect a 2008 Dell that had coee spilled on it to perform the same tasks as a 2014 iMac. I am extremely worried about the work atmosphere you are creating with these criteria and again, the validity of such a system needs to be addressed. I havent even broached the EOCs for every high school class. For the life of me, I cannot imagine why our state would pay to develop, give and grade a test for high school PE or Art 1 or Foods and Nutrition. Academics are one thing, but you need to allow our teenagers to explore topics that interest them and those do not need to come with a standardized test. at is a colossal waste of money and another way to suck out the last chance they might have to love learning. e goal of education is to foster the childs fullest potential based on their strengths and interests. Im lucky, I guess. My kids generally do t into your perfect little box because they pass tests, they never get into trouble, they will do ne at whatever curriculum you throw at them. But I want them to be excited about some aspects of learning, I want my kids in high school to take some classes because the topic interests them without the threat of failing a standardized test associated with an elective. e time that our kids could be pursuing their interests is being spent on test preparation. How can test prep be spun as in the best interest of the chid? Education should revolve around what is best for the child, right now, its revolving around what is best for Pearsons bottom line and stung our kids into this metaphorical box that theyve created. Weeks of standardized testing not only takes away valuable instruction time, but it also does not give a complete picture of the child. My middle schoolers were on a testing schedule for 11 days during testing season. Do you know what that means? It means they sit in one class for 3 hours every morning while another group in the school is testing. Know what they did? Watched movies. Some of them were science movies, but my 6th and 7th graders watched the same movie and did the same project. e test emphasis is coming from the higher-ups, the State and Federal Government (thats another topic all together). I get it. I do not blame the school or the county. Obamas Race to the Top dictates these tests and Common Core through funding. But education is not a race it is a journey why must we hurry it along? It is with that that I ask you, Seminole County, to reevaluate. You have a community base in Seminole County who live here for your highly rated schools, but by taking the power away from the individual schools and teachers, you are undermining your superiority. Allow your your teachers to teach as they see t for their students, let them create, let them explore. Trust them to know their kids. Take away the script. Allow the kids to play, learn in a manner that is developmentally appropriate. I am asking you to start thinking outside of the box. Stand up for our kids. Put creativity back in learning and teaching. Someone has to take the initiative to save the schools and a generation of kids why not you? Why not us? Who is in a better position than one of the highest performing counties in the state? Teachers are leaving the classroom in droves. Parents are in an uproar. e arguments are varied and most are valid. If you stick with this curriculum and these high stakes tests, I fear you will be creating an even wider divide between haves and have nots. Parents who can aord it will put their kids in private school or homeschool them. e gap will grow; not shrink. I want to stand up for all kids, but even if I scream from the rooftops about how the system is broken, my little voice has a very small chance of being heard. I want it to change and I have strong opinions. Project and inquiry based education. Informal and varied assessments for young kids. Develop the whole child, create curriculum and classrooms which are developmentally appropriate and foster the love of learning. I could go on. I cant change the educational environment by myselfat least not in the next few months but I can take charge of my kids education. For us, Ive decided that Jackson and Lylah (entering Kindergarten) will be attending Park Maitland next year. is year was a Common Core Experiment and next year will be focused on guring out the AIR test. I cannot, in good conscience, allow them to be the guinea pigs for a curriculum that has not been proven and pawns in the high-stakes testing game. I dont want Jackson to lose yet another year of meaningful learning while his teacher is forced to gure out how to best prepare him for a test shes never seen. Because her pay depends on it, because the schools funding depends on it she MUST prepare them if she agrees with it or not. I am concentrating my eorts on my younger two kids and praying that my oldest three have had a strong enough educational base that they will survive and hopefully thrive in this new environment. I want my kids to love learning, I want them to explore and be curious. I want their lessons to be meaningful, deep and connected. And ultimately, I want them back in Seminole County Schools, unfortunately at this point I do not think that SCPS is the best choice for them and that breaks my heart. Its a shame because youre losing out on two pretty amazing kids.

We did not know the mental state of Bergdahl at the time. All we knew was he left on his own, he caused us lots of hardship, and if we entered a room and saw him, we would put him down because he could attack us. On the morning of July 4, 2009, the soldier recalled, we assaulted several objectives looking for Bergdahl. ... We executed the mission without incident and were waiting to be exltrated. Our aircraft were in sight when they turned and ew in the opposite direction. At the time we did not know why, but we were stranded. e enemy took advantage of Bergdahls capture and attacked numerous outposts that morning. Combat Outpost Zerok was almost overrun, multiple soldiers were wounded, and PFCs Justin Casillas and Aaron Fairbairn lost their lives ghting that day, the soldier told me. (I wrote about their deaths in my July 8, 2009, column, not knowing they were related to the Bergdahl mess.) My source continued: We learned later that our exltration aircraft were diverted to support COP Zerok, and that the situation there was so dire that at one point there were two Apache gunships on station that went Winchester, meaning they expended all ordinance and ammunition, but they would not abandon the soldiers still ghting, so they resorted to low-level unarmed passes to distract the enemy. Bergdahls actions undoubtedly caused these events. We spent the remainder of Independence Day walking in the desert ... waiting for aircraft that did not come for many, many hours. He continued: A few days later, we (FTF) conducted a daylight raid on some tents looking for Bergdahl. We took heavy small arms and RPG re on approach and ran o the CH-47s in contact. Our entire element engaged the enemy, who turned out to be a Taliban shadow governor and his bodyguards. ... Multiple people died that day. ... All of this happened because Bergdahl got tired of playing soldier. e remainder of that deployment was focused on recovery eorts. Countless members of the brigade were wounded, and we lost good friends, among them PFC Matthew Martinek and 2LT Darryn Andrews. I have no doubt these great men would be alive if Bergdahl did not leave. In addition to Andrews, Casillas, Fairbairn and Martinek, PFC Morriss Walker and Sta Sergeants Clayton Bowen, Kurt Curtiss and Michael Murphrey died as a result of Bergdahls abandonment. ats eight dead American soldiers (not six, as the rest of the media have reported) betrayed by selsh Bergdahl and reckless President Obama. My source did not mince words: e fact that our government negotiated with terrorists and our enemy is incomprehensible. e fact that they exchanged ve war criminals for a traitor is sickening. e worst part for those of us that suered through that time is that PFC Bergdahl is being hailed as some kind of hero. He was automatically promoted to Specialist and Sergeant, ranks he does not deserve and did not earn. I have no doubt he will receive back pay for these past ve years, a substantial sum. ere will be book deals, and his family are celebrities. I am glad he is safe, and happy for his family, but he should return home to face a court martial. Are you listening, Capitol Hill and America? e Bowe Bergdahl mess isnt just a story about one deserter, but two. eres the muddle-headed lowlife who left his post and brothers behind. And theres the corrupt commander in chief who has jeopardized more American soldiers lives to rescue Bergdahl by bowing to the Taliban, while snubbing the surviving heroes and the eight dead American soldiers who lost their lives because of him. is cannot stand.Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies (Regnery 2010).

Megan Berger, Education Coordinator for the Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist County Soil and Water Conservation District gave each of the children in the class a Fire Bush Plant to grow for their garden. Each plant will become a garden. e Fire Bush Plant matures into an extremely colorful bush. e kindergarten students packed potting soil into small grow pots and planted their Fire Bush. ey were told how to water it. All the plants were donated by Hatchett Creek Farms in Gainesville and the potting soil was donated by Bronson Ace Hardware. We believe if you get the youth generally involved in conservation they will continue to be involved later in life, Berger said. e kindergartners learned the basics about the plants. When it came time to have the photo taken by Berger, the plants were placed on a window sill with the children standing in front. ere was some brief confusion because some of the children wanted to stand in front of their exact plant, which wasnt possible. So they decided to just line up in rows. Mission accomplished. Butteries are important. ey are beautiful and friendly insects with six jointed legs and three segments to their body. But they are also pollinators. ey pollinate plants like a honey bee. ey also serve as a food source for other animals. Most butteries live just two to four weeks. But the presence of butteries often generates a calming eect people. ere were no butteries in the kindergarten class. Berger showed the children color pictures of butteries. ey asked questions before launching into the mechanics of planting their Fire Bush. ey returned to their regular classwork after learning all about butteries.Bronson Kindergartners Grow Buttery Gardens of Their Own continued from page 1A meetings in the past, but the rules for public participation were adjusted Monday to take into account a 2013 state law requiring local governments to allow members of the public a reasonable opportunity to be heard. e changes were brought about following an incident at the previous council meeting where Mayor Franklin Schuler refused to let a woman in the audience speak and told her she would have to place her issue on the agenda under public participation if she wanted to be heard. She was not on the agenda. A Journal reporter asked town ocials if Schuler was complying with the 2013 public participation law when he denied the woman to right to speak. e town had not revised its public participation rule up to that point. But council members unanimously adopted changes to the rules at Mondays meeting. e public participation portion of the agenda in the past was one of the last agenda items. Under the revised rules, it will take place at the start of the meeting at the request of Town Clerk Kelli Brettel. People that need more than ve minutes to speak before the council must provide any documents they wish to discuss along with their name, address and phone number when they make the request to be part of the agenda. e new rules for public participation include a provision allowing the clerk to include a consent agenda section that will consist of items the clerk believes can be passed with minimal comment or discussion. Any council member can remove a consent item for discussion by the full council. e revised public discussion rules also allow the town council to waive any of the rules they adopted for public comment if the council deems it appropriate. e council also may at any time, limit or terminate a particular presentation or limit public comment in general unless such a move is against the law. e rst test of the new rules came during the meeting when two reporters raised their hands to ask questions. Schuler allowed both reporters to ask their questions. Brettel said she also wants to stop the practice of people speaking from the back of the meeting room. She said the towns microphones dont pick up the voices. In the past, the mayor sometimes allowed a free-owing discussion from the audience, but often people didnt give their names. Some of the people at the very back of the meeting room could barely be heard. e council is required to maintain a record of who speaks at council meetings. Brettel is aware that if people begin talking from the back of the room without identifying themselves, the ocial record is incomplete. e record is also incomplete if their voices are inaudible on the ocial digital recording of the council meeting. One section of the new rules gives the mayor or presiding ocer authority to maintain order during council meetings. e rules require people who wish to speak to step to the podium and identify themselves and identify the group they represent if there is one. e presiding ocer, which is nearly always the mayor, is empowered to summon sheris deputies to the meeting in order to maintain the peace.Bronson Council Revises Public Comment Rules for Council Meetings continued from page 1A

10A Log Cabin Quilterse Log Cabin Quilters met ursday, May 29th at the Levy County Quilt Museum at 11050 NW 10th Ave, Chieand. David Creavy, community liaison for Haven Hospice stopped by for a visit. We learned that Haven Hospices goal is to respond within an hour after a request for hospice assistance. Unfortunately, most of the members present already had family members that needed their help. All were pleased with the help that they had received. David left us with several copies of the living will forms. A couple from Steinhatchee came in with her one-of-a-kind quilt. e quilt was the result of a workshop sponsored by the Redding Quilter Sew-ciety in Redding California held by Liz Porter of Fons and Porter. Janet Taylor pieced the quilt and it was hand-quilted by the False Alarm Quilters in Clarkridge, Arkansas. Liz signed the quilt. e quilt is on display at the Museum. New baby quilts and wall hangings were brought in during the week. We also received some craft magazines. Were not just a Quilt Museum, we have many items made by local crafters so come out and enjoy their work.

Each team consisted of 36 members including 28 cyclists. To participate, each cyclist had to raise at least $2,500. Grants are made to their host organizations. At the TEC stop, cyclists were treated to a dinner and activities with a few of the members. ey enjoyed a barrel race using stick horses and two members joined in riding our horses while learning some of the therapeutic activities we perform with our members.

Bell discovered that the two bidders had not been contacted by Jordan and Associates when one of them walked up to him in a grocery store and asked what was happening with the Tarafa project. e contractor hadnt seen the newspaper advertisements rebidding the project and no one from Jordan and Associates had reached out to him about the rebid. Commissioners began working on the Tarafa septic tank system a year ago and had no idea they would encounter severe problems replacing the septic system. e county paid $18,800 to build a mound system for the failing septic tank, but it never worked properly. Euent leached out of the sides of the mound creating public health issues. Block grant money paid for the mound system. GSE Engineering, Inc. then designed a new system and the county advertised for bids. But no one responded on the second go around. e latest design calls for the excavation of all the dirt in the front yard including the soil beneath the narrow concrete driveway and carport. e plan is to replace the dirt with soil that drains better. e Tarafa home has also been rehabilitated. e roof, windows and kitchen oor were replaced with block grant money. e home itself is located in Peaceful Acres near Lake Rousseau. A manmade channel was excavated many years ago as part of the subdivision project. County ocials believe the soil from the channel became the base upon which the homes were constructed. Bell has become increasingly aggravated with the lack of progress on the septic tank system. e commission has been granted extensions of the time to nish the federally-funded project. e board has until November to complete the latest design. e county has also run into delays dealing with the state on the project. I have no faith in anyone thats been involved in this project thus far, Bell said.Commission Chairman Gives Consultant Tongue Lashing continued from page 1A property taxes up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all improvements made by a new business and all tangible property for new businesses, and up to 100 percent of the assessed value of all added improvements to real property plus the net increase in tangible property for the expansion of an existing business. Property tax incentives have not always been popular in Levy County government. Some longtime business owners in the past have questioned whether it is fair to provide property tax exemptions for new businesses when their businesses have never received similar tax breaks. ere was no opposition to placing the referendum question on the Nov. 4 ballot at Tuesdays meeting. ere were questions asked about how the tax incentives would work. e reason for this is to oer incentive packages to businesses that are shopping the county, Bell said. Levy County has traditionally had a high unemployment rate. Many of the countys residents travel to neighboring counties for employment in spite of the high price of fuel. Voters will have full control of whether the ballot question passes. A positive vote will give the county commission the ability to grant property tax exemptions, but a negative vote will terminate the proposal.County Seeks Voter Approval for Tax Incentive Program to Create Jobs continued from page 1Ae county counts the number of houses on the road and conducts a trac study to nd out how many vehicles travel on the road. e road can make the paving list if it meets either the trac or house count, said Commission Chairman Ryan Bell, but the county also looks at whether there is a community benet from paving the road, such as a school being constructed nearby that could change trac counts. County Commissioner Danny Stevens said the Road Policy Board decides whether the road qualies for paving after the house and trac counts are completed by the county road department. Residents living on limestone roads often complain about the dust and the bumpy ride. e county has hundreds of miles of such roads. Some are bumpier and dustier than others. After a road has been placed on the road-paving list it takes about ve years before it can be paved, County Coordinator Fred Moody said. Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce Greenlee said he walked the area Tedder described as a gorge and saw nothing that would cause a tire to atten. Obviously it never made the house or trac count, he said. Bell told the two residents the county would contact them when the house and trac counts were made again, but he reminded them that the county has a large inventory of roads to maintain. Commissioner John Meeks said many of the roads were not constructed by the county but have been taken into the county maintenance system and are maintained as best we can. NE 131st St. is maintained by the county. Tedder promised residents along the road would le a lot of complaints if the county doesnt respond to their concerns.Residents Say Gorge in Limestone Road Can Flatten Tires continued from page 1A This is a one of a kind quilt made during a workshop taught by Liz Porter.
By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterWillistons Class 1A state champion baseball was treated to a parade down Willistons main highway and a surprise reworks show at the football stadium last week. City Council President Jason Cason, a former Red Devil baseball player read a proclamation signed by all ve councilmen and Mayor Gerald Hethcoat commending the Mighty Red Devils on winning the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 1A State Baseball Championship. e proclamation said the state championship will go down as one of the greatest moments in Williston High School athletics history. Each of the players and coaches were named in the proclamation. Afterward, Head Coach Scott Hall stood with his players and coaching sta and showed the crowd the proclamation that praised the team for a job well done and complimented Hall and his sta for outstanding success in teaching these remarkable student athletes. e proclamation also called upon all citizens to commend and applaud the high school varsity baseball team and its coaches for the tremendous achievement. Mayor Gerald Hethcoat originally planned to read the proclamation, but Cason asked for the honor. He said it meant a great deal to him as a former player to have witnessed Williston winning a state championship in baseball. I thought it was awesome to win the Suwannee Valley Conference championship in 1992, Cason said. I cant imagine what these boys are feeling after winning the 2014 state championship. Hethcoat was one of hundreds of Williston residents who gathered at three local churches to watch the game live on the Internet. He said the town was riveted to pitcher Trent Johnson as worked his way out of a bases-loaded, no-outs fourth inning. He commended Johnson for his outstanding play. Chipley popped out for the rst out. e nal two batters were struck out by Johnson to retire the side. Hethcoat said people in Williston churches were hanging on Johnsons every pitch. ere was some intensity in Williston, Hethcoat said. Guys, you got it back and you went on to win. Hethcoat said the community has had the privilege of watching the young men on the team grow up to develop their athletic skills over a lifetime, but the community was thrilled beyond words to see the Red Devils win a state championship. You dont know the excitement you have created in Williston, Hethcoat said.State Champion Williston Baseball Team Honored with Parade Williston Head Baseball Coach Scott Hall and his state champion baseball team show Red Devil fans a framed proclamation from the Williston City Council.

Bronson Middle High School Recognizes Top FFA Members at Annual Banquet By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterFour young men at Summit Academy in Bronson Friday night thrust their caps skyward in jubilation. ey had met the challenges of a public school education and won the right to join the working world of adults. ey graduated. Principal Dennis Webber encouraged J.R. Barlow, Adam MacEdward, Robert Holt and Jacob Meeks to face the future and take advantage of employment opportunities that arise before them.

I had ed to a lonely place, my guts twisted, and hardened within me like the knot on an old oak tree. For hours I breathed only in sobs, drowning in my new found hopelessness, and overcome by my shattered innocence. I was only twelve, and I had just lost my very best friend in a car accident. Derek was my rst cousin, born exactly one month before me. I had never imagined life without him. at one of us could die had never crossed my mind. I had not yet been battle hardened by life, and I was surely ill equipped to handle its nality. ankfully, my Mimi gently explained to me that he was in heaven now. ose words brought such comfort; almost as if a dark curtain were rent allowing healing light to stream into my broken heart. Wearily I picked myself up. I had to share this news with Dereks mother. I thought of this the other day when someone mentioned that Brother Paul Baggett would soon be holding a revival in the area. I grinned like an old possum at the mention of his name. Now theres a fellow who understands a thing or two with regards to matters of life and death. I reckon hes preached a thousand funerals. I attended one a while back. Knowing his reputation as a loud and colorful evangelist, I did not know what to expect. However, my reservations quickly dissolved as he very humbly began his eulogy, displaying great reverence for God and respect for the grieving loved ones. He proceeded to honor my late friend for the wonderful Christian life he had lived and noted the eect that it had made on others. He told rst hand stories that caused many heads to nod along. I noticed a few tears. en Brother Baggett began to quote the Scriptures. I recall Revelations 21:4. (And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.) He also quoted others about Heaven, and the wonderful rewards awaiting those who have trusted Gods saving grace through faith in Jesus. Soon these powerful truths were illuminating the room. I beheld a wonderful transformation in the people. It was a very familiar one. For it was the same one I had experienced with Mimi so long ago. As he continued the atmosphere became so charged that the preach in Brother Baggett could no longer be suppressed. He began to march back and forth upon the altar rallying the believers to do what they were called to do, believe! His big ole smile took hold. He painted wonderfully upon the canvas of our hearts with the Words of the Master, and a beautiful picture of Jesus triumph over death burst forth. I felt as though I should be the rst to stand and shout, but somebody beat me to it. I dont know if Ive ever had more Church than I did that day. How could there be such great joy in the midst of such loss? Simple, the focus had turned to the big picture, the total victory of the cross. A plea was made for those living apart from Jesus to give their life to Him. Who was I to argue? Funerals practically force us to deal with the fact that we too will one day have to stand before God. Check the records, theres a 100% mortality rate right here in America! But anyway Brother Baggett did a ne job in my estimation. Im sure my friend would have approved. It was a true celebration of his graduation. Baggett said that if he died before his wife, and she got some lame ole preacher to do his burial, that he would kick that casket lid open and preach his own funeral! I partly believe him. It was a bold statement, but after hearing Gods Word on the matter, we were all feeling a little bold that day Guy Sheeld Church CalendarCLINT JOSEPH WILLIAMSMay 31, 1982 May 22, 2013 Mr. Clint Joseph Williams of Branford, Florida, passed away at the age of 31 on ursday, May 22, 2014 while working in North Dakota.

Come on in....lets get cooking!www.facebook.com/pennysrecipes Mad Cow and the GrapevinesDuring calving season at Rocky Hammock Ranch I would drive through the pastures and check the cows. When I found a newborn calf I would put a tag in its ear and also a tattoo. One day I spotted a cow that had a calf the night before but it was not with mama. I searched the pasture and found the calf in a small patch of woods under some vines. I left my truck and was on foot when I found it. I crawled in to where the calf was laying and put the tag in its ear. When I punched the hole in its ear for the tag he went to yellin for mama. By the time I got the tattoo in the ear she had left the other cows and was about six feet from me but she couldnt get through the vines to me. I gathered up my tagging and tattooing tools and slipped out the back way leaving the cow ghting the vines. e calf got tagged and all I got was scratched up a little. Moral of the Story: at was denitely just another good day on the ranch. Contact Bill for a CD at 352/493-2766 or write him at: 8151 NW 77 Place, Chieand, 32626.
