Ladner said the college is closer to Fanning Springs and the Search Begins for Chieand Manager; Evaluations ChangedBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand City Commissioners Monday voted to advertise for a new city manager, but to modify the form they use to evaluate their top managers and to add a three-month evaluation to the existing six-month and 12-month evaluations. e changes were made largely because of criticism from City Commissioner Teresa Barron who didnt think former City Manager Kevin Gay was given a way of defending himself or adequate time to address allegations. Commissioners stopped short of creating a list of directives that would be written after the three-month evaluation and given to the new city manager, but rather kept most of the existing format in the evaluation form that leaves space for commissioner comments. Some commissioners felt Gay had plenty of time to make changes in the way he managed his oce following criticisms leveled at him in the six-month evaluation, but others felt the six-month evaluation wasnt enough. e self-evaluation portion of the evaluation form for the city manager was a point of contention. Gay lled in his six-month self-evaluation with all 5s, indicating a perfect performance in every area. e second time he wrote down 5th amendment for every question on the self-evaluation. e 5th amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects U.S. Citizens from self-incrimination. Gay said he felt the self-evaluation form could have created problems for him with future employers if he graded himself low in certain areas. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he understood Gays concerns on the matter.Former City Manager to Get Severance Pay If He Doesnt Sue By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterAcknowledging mistakes were made, the Chieand City Commission voted unanimously Monday to accept former City Manager Kevin Gays request for $24,807.64 in severance pay provided he agrees in writing not to sue the city. Gays attorney Lanny Russell wrote the city a June 6 letter saying the commission failed to abide by its contract with Gay requiring a written notice be hand delivered to him prior to his anniversary date stating the city did not wish to renegotiate his contract. Gay was told he no longer had a job at the May 27 city commission meeting, but the letter wasnt mailed to Gay until May 28, the day after the city should have notied him in writing that it would not negotiate a new contract. City Attorney Norm Fugate was given permission to negotiate with Russell and to make the oer. Fugate said Gay was also entitled to unemployment compensation. e unemployment would be based in part on the severance pay he receives. City commissioners said they werent interested in paying Gays $937.50 in attorneys fees. At the May 27 meeting, commissioners said they werent going to give him severance pay, either.Fact Box on City Manager and Interim City Manager dates of employment:Governor Signs Legislation Funding New Williston Schoole Florida Legislature has approved $34.8 million for the new Williston Middle High School and Gov.

Lamenta was arrested on June 6, 2014 for Cultivating and Manufacture of Marijuana for his role in an indoor marijuana grow operation. Lamenta was booked into the Dixie County Jail on the warrant obtained by DEA. He has since bonded out of jail on a $50,000.00. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris Oce Dixie County Meth Possession Arrest Leads to More for Local Burglars Over the past several weeks the Dixie County Sheris Oce has been able to identify individuals believed to be involved in residential burglaries. Last ursday afternoon, Sheris ocials and the Cross City Correctional K-9 Team went to a residence on NE 642 Avenue in Old Town in an attempt to locate one of the suspects involved. When they arrived, they found Robert Wetzel sitting in the front porch area of the residence. Wetzel said that he was there alone and that the homeowner was not home. As Wetzel was being interviewed, investigators observed a methamphetamine head-jar (mason jar used in the process) sitting on the ground near Wetzel. Wetzel, 48, from Old Town, was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine and taken into custody. Once Wetzel was in custody, the CRCCI K-9 Team began to search the perimeter of the property and discovered that someone else had been at the location and ed the scene. e K-9 Team then began to track the second suspect through the wooded area in the neighborhood and located the second suspect, Kevin Blitch, hiding from ocers. Blitch, who does not live at this residence either, was arrested for Resisting an Ocer without Violence and taken into custody also. Sheris ocials and the CRCCI K-9 Team then traveled to a second location where Blitch was known to frequent. Once ocers arrived at this location and made contact with the homeowners, several items from recent burglaries were discovered along with methamphetamine and the items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine. ese items were linked to Blitch and recovered by investigators with the assistance from the CRCCI K-9 Team. Blitch, 48, of Old Town, was also arrested for Manufacturing of Methamphetamine, Burglary and Grand eft. Both Wetzel and Blitch, who have extensive criminal histories, remain in the Dixie County Jail. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris Oce Robert Wetzel Kevin Blitch NOTICE FROM THE SCHOOL BOARD OF LEVY COUNTY The School Board of Levy County at its regularly scheduled Board Meeting on June 3, 2014, voted to approve the 2014-2015 TRIM Calendar.

4A OPINION Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateTen years ago this month, U.S. Marine Wassef Ali Hassoun disappeared from Camp Fallujah in Iraq. After a ve-month military investigation, he was charged with desertion and theft, brought back to Virginias Quantico Marine base and then transferred to North Carolinas Camp Lejeune for trial. Yet, a full decade later, Hassoun is as free as a bird. e accused deserters whereabouts are unknown. No trial ever began. No punishment ensued. And our leaders in Washington dont seem to be doing a thing about this. Hassoun was born in Lebanon and immigrated with his family to Utah in 1999. A few years later, he joined the Marines as an Arabic translator. On June 20, 2004, Hassoun bailed on guard duty at his base in Fallujah. He took his military-issued gun and his Muslim prayer rug. Military records obtained by the Salt Lake Tribune showed that he was torn between military loyalty and his Muslim beliefs. According to the internal probe, he undermined intelligence-gathering operations by refusing to translate questions about Islam. He balked at raising his voice to suspected jihadi imams and sheiks. He openly threatened to walk out the front gate and leave. e Muslim Marine told his colleagues he supported Hezbollah terrorist attacks on Israel. Members of his unit told investigators he was anti-American and listened to jihad sermons on propaganda CDs. Hassoun had received spiritual counseling from Navy Lt. Cmdr. Abuhena Saifulislam, a Muslim military chaplain tied to a radical Wahhabist outt under federal investigation, according to Hoover Institution fellow and journalist Paul Sperry. A bizarre video by Hassouns Islamist kidnappers showed him blindfolded with a sword above his head. But his fellow Marines suspected it was all staged and the abduction a collaborative fake. What did the purported hostagetakers want in return for the shady, disgruntled American serviceman? e release of jihadists in U.S.-led occupation prisons. Translation: Gitmo detainees. (Americans would never negotiate such a reckless trade, right? Oh, wait.) In an even weirder twist, Hassoun somehow resurfaced at the U.S. embassy in Lebanon a few weeks after he walked away from his base. His family was rumored to have enlisted the aid of an Islamist group associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. Hassoun denied desertion charges, came back to the U.S. for trial and then deserted a second time after failing to return to Camp Lejeune after visiting family in Utah. In 2011, Hassouns family sought a $1 million book and movie deal in Hollywood. One of his brothers said the fugitive Marine was with family in Lebanon. Ten summers after he abandoned his post, doubledeserting Hassoun is still on the run and has yet to be held accountable. Its worth reminding Americans about Hassouns story in light of President Obamas exploding Bowe Bergdahl scandal. By all appearances, this administration has no intention of taking action on longstanding allegations that Bergdahl, like Hassoun before him, deliberately abandoned his post in 2009. Deant Obama said he makes no apologies for the treacherous deal, even as reports of Bergdahls renunciation of U.S. citizenship and conversion to Islam have surfaced. Soldiers on the ground have described how Bergdahls disappearance catalyzed deadly coordinated attacks by the Taliban on numerous U.S. outposts in Afghanistan. e response has been breathtaking. One of Obamas minions, former Veterans Aairs bureaucrat and now Housing and Urban Development ack Brandon Friedman defended his boss by suggesting that Bergdahls colleagues were psychopaths. Nancy Pelosis daughter, Alexandra, sneered that Bergdahls critics inside the military are dysfunctional. Harry Reid invoked Hillary Clintons What dierence does it make? retort. e president himself snied that swelling anger among the families of the fallen was whipped up. Islamist sympathizers inside our military walk away, and the Obama White House turns a blind eye. e Fort Hood jihad attack by Nidal Hasan, who invoked Hassoun in PowerPoint presentations to his military supervisors, is workplace violence. Gitmo recidivist Abu Suan bin Qumu, lead suspect in the Benghazi attack, roams free despite the presidents promise to make justice his biggest priority. Our commander in chief empties Gitmo of the worst of the worst jihadists and shrugs at the recidivists targeting American soldiers and civilians. And in a desperate attempt to deect from the rising death toll of the Veterans Aairs book-cooking scandal, Obama gave Bob Bergdahl a Rose Garden stage to invoke Allah in Arabic. If youre not whipped up into Category 5 disgust, youre not paying attention.

Thomas SowellCreators SyndicatePeople are arguing about what the United States got out of the deal that swapped ve top level terrorist leaders for one American soldier who was, at best, absent from his post in a war zone. Soldiers who served in the same unit with him call him a deserter. e key to this deal, however, is less likely to be what the United States got out of the deal than it is about what Barack Obama got out of the deal. If nothing else, it instantly got the veterans hospitals scandals o the front pages of newspapers and pushed these scandals aside on television news programs. It was a clear winner for Barack Obama. And that may be all that matters to Barack Obama. People who are questioning the presidents competence seem not to want to believe that any President of the United States would knowingly damage this countrys interests. One of the problems of many fundamentally decent people is that they nd it hard to understand people who are not fundamentally decent, or whose moral compass points in a dierent direction from theirs. Many people who are painfully disappointed with President Obama have no real reason to be. e mans whole previous history, from childhood on, was shaped by a whole series of people, beginning with his mother, whose vision of America was very much like that of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, whose church Barack Obama belonged to for 20 long years. Obama is not a stupid man. ere is no way that he could have sat in that church all that time without knowing how Jeremiah Wright hated America, and how his vision of the world was one in which white folks greed runs a world in need. Even if the Reverend Wright had been the only such person in Barack Obamas life -and he was not -it should have been enough to keep him out of the White House. Innocent until proven guilty is a good rule in a court of law, which has the power to deprive a defendant of liberty or life. But it is mindless and dangerous nonsense to apply that standard outside that context -especially when choosing a President of the United States, who holds in his hands the liberty and lives of millions of Americans. People who are disappointed with Barack Obama have no right to be. It is they whom others have a right to be disappointed with. Instead of taking their role as citizens seriously, they chose to vote on the basis of racial symbolism, glib rhetoric and wishful thinking. Moreover, many are already talking about choosing the next President of the United States on the basis of demographic symbolism -to have the rst woman president. And if she is elected on that basis, will any criticism of what she does in the White House be denounced as based on anti-woman bias, as criticisms of President Obama have been repeatedly denounced as racism? And what if we have the rst Hispanic president or the rst Jewish president? Will any criticism of their actions in the White House be silenced by accusations of prejudice? We may yet become the rst nation to die from a terminal case of frivolity. Other great nations in history have been threatened by barbarians at the gates. We may be the rst to be threatened by self-indulgent silliness inside the gates. As for Barack Obama, you cannot judge any Presidents competence by the results of his policies, without rst knowing what he was trying to achieve. Many wise and decent people assume automatically that President Obama was trying to serve the interests of America. From that standpoint, he has failed abysmally, both at home and abroad. And that should legitimately call his competence into question. But what if his vision of the world is one in which the wealth and power of those at the top, whether at home or internationally, are deeply resented, and have been throughout his life, under the tutelage of a whole series of resenters? And what if his goal is to redress that imbalance? Who can say that he has failed, when the fundamental institutions of this country have been successfully and perhaps irretrievably undermined, and when the positions of America and its allies on the world stage have been similarly, and even more dangerously, undermined around the world?omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

In a letter to Assistant Secretary Catherine Lhamon, Rubio condemns any forced bureaucratic changes to the Bright Futures program, which would render the program nancially unstable and undermine the purpose of the scholarship. Rubio points to the federally funded Pell Grant program as a means to nancially assist low-income students with need-based grants. Rubio said imposing arbitrary rules and exceptions to the standards set for Bright Futures degrades the very fundamental purpose of the scholarship. e full text of the letter is below. May 16, 2014 Ms. Catherine Lhamon Assistant Secretary U.S. Department of Education Oce for Civil Rights 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, DC 20202-1100 Dear Assistant Secretary Lhamon, I am writing to formally request you end your baseless investigation into the Florida Bright Futures scholarship program. is is a race-blind merit-based program that supports Floridas most promising students. e U.S. Department of Education has no legitimate legal basis for investigating such a program. Further, forcing bureaucratic changes in the parameters of eligibility for this scholarship would not only degrade the fundamental purpose of this scholarship, but also render the program nancially unstable. As you know, Floridas Bright Futures scholarships were created to assist Floridas most promising students with the increasing cost of higher education through prot generated by the Florida Lottery. Since its creation, this program has helped over 660,000 of Floridas brightest students receive in-state postsecondary education. e Bright Futures scholarships are awarded solely on merit, which includes factors such as the students high school completion, grade point average, test scores, service to their community, and a clean criminal record. e fundamental function

I am acutely aware of the unfortunate reality that a students circumstance can make the dream of obtaining a higher education more dicult. As a result, I am supportive of the federally funded Pell Grant program to assist low-income students with need-based grants. is grant program was created with the specic function of promoting access to postsecondary education and, unlike the Bright Futures program, takes a students nancial circumstances into consideration when awarding grants. Forcing bureaucratic changes to the Bright Futures program would jeopardize the nancial solvency of the program. To the credit of the students of Florida, the standards and achievement levels have risen across the entire state, and the number of students eligible for the program has also increased. While I am proud of the strides Floridas students have made, the logical conclusion is that the standards of the program must rise with the achievements of our students. For these reasons, I formally request you end your investigation of the Bright Futures program. is program has helped thousands of Floridas top students pay for the increasing cost of higher education and go on to be leaders in a large range of industries throughout Florida and the nation. To impose arbitrary rules and exceptions to the standards degrades the fundamental purpose of the scholarship. Unnecessary intervention by the Department of Education threatens the long-term sustainability of this program and will be damaging to the future of many of Floridas most promising students. I thank you for your consideration and look forward to your prompt response. Sincerely, Marco Rubio United States Senator Editors Note: is letter from Sen. Rubio contains an all important criteria for the future of this country. Please support Sen. Rubio and all others that still realize that socializing our students down to a common worker-bee mentality is the beginning of the end of American society, ingenuity and courage as we have always known it to be. Not everyone wins! ose that persevere, apply themselves and dont give up do win. Education is not about pleasing the students; it is about training them for the future. at training sometimes is uncomfortable and hurts but in the end they learn to quit taking oense (e Bait of Satan) at their failures, learn from the failures, apply themselves and move on to improve not only their skills but most of all, their character. Character is the prize in the end as we use the learned skills in our lives. Cheating erases character and the Department of Education is cheating hard working students of their just due for working hard. It is starting to look like that might just be the point of this whole thing. Break down the ght for right in a person and their character can slip into a passive give-up mentality, especially in the youth. en the automaton society just passively exists until the end. ose of us who are too old to give up the ght for right have to persevere to give that great gift to our future generations. If you have never had to ght for something now is the time to reenlist for the cause We have only just begun to ght! Kathy Hilliard, Editor City Commissioner Teresa Barron said there were obviously issues she knew nothing about when Gay was red. Obviously he didnt get a chance to defend himself, she said. Technically, Gay wasnt red. He worked as a contract employee and the city commission chose not to renew the contract on a 3-2 vote. He walked out of the city commission meeting in anger. e commission had voted 3-2 a few minutes earlier to reject Barrons motion to renegotiate his contract. Barron said she didnt think Gay was treated fairly. She and Commissioner Rollin Hudson wanted to renegotiate the contract, but Mayor Teal Pomeroy and Commissioners Betty Walker and Chris Jones were opposed. Apparently there are some things I didnt know about, Barron said. Jones said he spoke to Gay about the issues he had with his job performance and with the person who had lodged a complaint. He said Gay drove over to his place of business to talk to him. He gave his rebuttal on my property; so he and I spoke, Jones said. Pomeroy said its dicult for a city manager to follow the directives of ve dierent bosses. He said city managers and county managers have the same problem all over the state. Pomeroy said he talked with Gay and got the impression a lawsuit wasnt imminent. Gay told the Journal that Pomeroy apologized to him when he called.Former City Manager to Get Severance Pay If He Doesnt Sue continued from page 1A Rubio to Federal Department of Education continued ftom page 4ASearch Begins for Chieand Manager; Evaluations Changed continued from page 1ACity commissioners set July 7 as the date when city manager applications and resums will be due. ere will be a special meeting after the regular city commission meeting on July 14 to review the applications and shorten the list of applicants. e city commissioners will then meet again in regular session on July 28. ere will be special meetings on July 29-30 to interview the nalists. e background checks will be handled by a private investigation rm, the same one that reviewed the last batch of applicants.

Fanning Springs came up with some money and we came with some money and they will provide the water and sewer, Ladner said. Ladner said the college campus is not situated in either municipality. e late Chieand High School teacher Jack Wilkinson donated $2.5 million for construction of a new college and additional $1 million in donations has come from other members of the Levy County community, primarily from Chieand. ats a lot of community support for this project, Ladner said. e late Jack Mann and his wife LoyAnn donated 10 acres of land for the site. e college has purchased an additional 30 acres. e property borders U.S. 19 on the east side and the Nature Coast State Trail on the west. Ladner said the college will ask for additional funding next year from the Florida Legislature. She said the college also anticipates additional funding will come from community donations. Wilkinsons donation will be used to enhance facilities and equipment at the new campus. e College of Central Florida has outgrown its current administrative and classroom facilities at a shopping center located across the street from Chieand High School.

A hearing on Duke Energys petition to build the new power plant is expected in August before the Florida Public Service Commission. A ruling is expected by the end of the year. e plant would take three years to build. Construction would start in 2015 and come on line in 2018 with 50 to 75 employees. is plant will be able to replace generation from the nuclear plant and two of the coal red plants, Ivey said. Company ocials are watching the Sabal Trail approval process. Should the Sabal Trail project fail to win federal and state approval, Duke Energy would look elsewhere for its natural gas to supply the power plant. Ivey said the 5,000-acre Duke Energy property in southwest Levy County remains the proposed site of a nuclear power project in the distant future. e company is proceeding with plans to seek federal approval of a combined operating and construction license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. e nuclear power plant at the Crystal River Energy Complex was decommissioned after cracks were found in the containment building wall surrounding the nuclear reactor. Ivey said the oldest two coal red plants at the energy complex will go out of service about the same time the new natural gas plant comes on line. e older coal red plants dont have modern air emission controls like the other two newer plants at the same site. Progress Energy Florida, which was merged into Duke Energy in 2013, planned to build two nuclear reactors at the southwest Levy County site before the national economic meltdown in 2008 all but halted the housing boom in most of Florida. e expected population growth didnt arrive as expected. We denitely havent stopped pursuing a construction and operating license, but (construction of the plant) is denitely in the distant future, Ivey said. e natural gas power plant is an attractive source for power generation in the modern era because natural gas prices are currently low and natural gas burns much cleaner than coal or oil. Natural gas is the most cost eective for customers, Ivey said. Construction of the natural gas plant will raise the monthly bill of a Duke Energy customer. ere will be some increased costs, but since were not talking about putting in the rate until 2018 or 2019, its a little early to say what the impact will be on rates, Ivey said. It will probably have a price impact on bills of $7 to $8. But he said natural gas prices will have an eect on consumer bills.Duke Energy to Build $1.5 Billion Natural Gas Power Plant continued from page 1A
6A Bronson Students Receive Multiple Scholarships The Florida Bright Futures scholarships with an ACT score of 26-28 were awarded to: Left to right Victoria Strough, Wade Phillips and Brandy Weston. From the College of Central Florida for Academic Merit to JR Trimm and for Academic Scholar to Justin Johnson. From STEM to Melissa Boyette and Zachary Kalinouski. Melissa Boyette also received a scholarship from Central Florida Electric Cooperative and the Levy County Education Association. From the Levy County Schools Foundation to (l to r) Wade Phillips, Naomi Sloan and Leslie Ruvio. From the Levy County School Food Service Association to Alyssa Bauder who also received scholarships from the Eagle Lady Caf and Workforce. From the Tommy Dunford scholarship for higher education to Caitlyn Cates. From the Town of Bronson to (l to r) Wade Phillips, Naomi Sloan and Caitlyn Cates. Local businesses, groups and individuals contributed to Levy County students last Tuesday with scholarships to continue their education. After years of hard work these students were honored with tangible rewards to help them move onward and upward to fulll their dreams. With thanks to Ms. Nobles at Bronson Middle High School for the pictures and information the Levy County Journal would also like to publish these accomplishments and say congratulations to all these students who studied and disciplined themselves to achieve these awards of scholarship.

Meeks said the Royals coaching sta has not decided whether Beauchamp will play quarterback or in the defensive secondary of the team. Warner University has 1,000 students and oers a degree in agricultural studies. Beauchamp wants to pursue a career in agriculture. e degree program in agriculture made Warner appealing to him. Beauchamp turned down a college baseball oer to play for Warner University. Warner University was founded by Church of God pastors and laity in 1968. It is a liberal arts university set on a 300acre campus. e mission of the university is to provide individuals who exemplify academic excellence and Christian character an opportunity to lead and serve, according to its website. Warner University exists to provide students who are committed to the mission of the institution the opportunity to further develop their God-given abilities through various venues, the website said. Beauchamp thanked Porch and the coaching sta at BHS for working to turn around the football program at Bronson and working to make him a better player. He also thanked his parents, Cheryl and Mickey Beauchamp for supporting him. And he had one more thank you. I want to thank God for making this possible, Beauchamp said. Cheryl Beauchamp, principal at Bronson Elementary School, said Tyler is the fourth generation to graduate from Bronson High School. She said his athletic scholarship proves young athletes dont have to leave Bronson to reach the next level. She said the family had just about decided that Tyler would not play football, but her husband Mickey never lost the faith. is has been a prayer answered, she said. She said her son has always been taught to make the best of his life, and that much is expected of those to whom much is given. Bronson quarterback Tyler Beauchamp stands with the people who made his scholarship possible.

Morgan Geiger, daughter of Jeremy and Tisha Geiger, was nominated for Student of the Month at Joyce Bullock Elementary by teacher Debra Osteen who described Morgan as an all-around ideal student. She makes teaching enjoyable because she always puts forth her best eort on all the tasks given to her. She is more than willing to help her teacher or peers whenever needed. She is very polite and caring to all her peers. Morgan has made tremendous growth this year and continues to thrive, even here at the very end of the school year. I appreciate all of the determination and enthusiasm Morgan shows daily with her lessons. She is a wonderful asset to her class. Much of Morgans success can be traced back to having such a wonderful support system. Her parents have done an amazing job of instilling quality morals, values and high expectations in Morgan!

Putnam announced that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service is now accepting applications for the Southern Pine Beetle Assistance and Prevention Program. e sign-up period will run from June 6 through July 18 and is available for non-industrial private forest landowners. e southern pine beetle is one of the most destructive forest pests in the southeast, said Commissioner Putnam. By taking preventative measures now, Floridas private landowners can greatly reduce their risk of timber loss during future outbreaks. Periodic outbreaks can rapidly kill millions of pine trees and deplete tens of thousands of acres of timber resources. e most recent series of major southern pine beetle outbreaks resulted in an estimated $59 million in timber loss between 1999 and 2002. e Southern Pine Beetle Assistance Program is oered for private lands in 44 northern Florida counties. (Map attached.) e program provides incentive payments for the following: Conducting a rst pulpwood thinning. Conducting prescribed burning operations. Conducting mechanical underbrush treatments. Planting longleaf or slash pine. Since 2005, we have assisted many private forest land owners through this program, said Jim Karels, Director of the Florida Forest Service. More than 150,000 Florida acres have been treated for Southern Pine Beetle prevention. e Southern Pine Beetle (SPB) is one of ve common species of pine bark beetles that occur throughout the Southeastern United States. Pine bark beetles utilize stressed, dying, or recently-dead pines as hosts. All species tunnel, reproduce, and feed in the inner bark or phloem (located between the outer bark and the wood); this activity disables the transport of sugars through the tree. In addition, several bark beetle species (including the SPB) introduce a blue-stain fungus into the wood, plugging the trees water transport system. Typically, pines successfully colonized by SPB are functionally dead within one day after attack, despite the fact that the crown may retain green needles for several days or weeks. To learn more about this program and obtain an application form, contact a local Florida Forest Service oce or visit www. freshfromorida.com/ SouthernPineBeetle/ Prevention. Qualied landowners may apply for no more than two approved preventative practices per year. Funding requests may not exceed $10,000 annually. All qualifying applications will be evaluated and ranked for approval. is program is supported through a grant from the U.S. Forest Service. e Florida Forest Service manages more than 1 million acres of public forest land while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating eects of wildre.

Willistons Langworthy Named Class 1A Player of the Year by Florida Dairy Farmerse Florida Dairy Farmers have named Williston High School sophomore Austin Langworthy as Class 1A Player of the Year and Williston Coach Scott Hall as Coach of the Year. Langworthy, a University of Florida commit who was a big part of Willistons 2014 Class 1A state championship, threw 80 strikeouts in 62 innings, did not give up an earned run, batted .443, hit seven doubles, eight triples and 23 RBI. Hall led the Red Devils to their third regional playo in three years as head coach and gave the school its second state baseball championship since 1923. By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronson High School elded one its most talented and experienced varsity baseball teams in decades during the 2014 season with ve of the players named to the All-State Team and One to the All-State Academic team. Ty Barber, Tyler Beauchamp, Brock Brower, Tim Gibson and David Dees were recognized as All-Area Team members and All-State Team members, and Landon Smith was named to the All-State Academic team. Landon is the schools salutatorian. Coach Allen Strickland, who is leaving the Eagles to take a math teaching job at Chieand High School, his alma mater, and an assistant coaching job with the Chieand Indians, said goodbye to the players and their parents after his fourth and last season with the Eagles. I have a little girl of my own, but you will always be my boys, Strickland said. You are all winners in my book. I hope you will pay it forward someday. Bronson had more than 200 hits as a team this season and led the area in members selected for the All-State Team. e team had 80 stolen bases and averaged 8 runs per game compared to 5 the year before. e team gave up an average of 3 runs. e Eagles advanced to the state playos for the second consecutive year and nished with 14 wins for the second year. e talk among many in high school baseball at the start of the season was that Bronson was one of the top teams in the district this year. It was loaded with seniors. It had talent. is year the talk was, we werent going to sneak up on people, Strickland said. We always faced better pitching. He said Bronson settled the score with Bell, beating the Bulldogs to win the right to advance to the state playos, after losing to Bell earlier in the season. e biggest thing this year that made us a good team is we were balanced. We had good pitching. We played good defense and we could hit, Strickland said. Looking at the body of our work, we had a great baseball team this year. Former Williston Coach Jim Smith is taking over for Strickland. He is the second Williston coach to come to Bronson. Five players nished with a batting average over .300. P.J. Shipp had .312, Landon Smith .329, David Dees .333, Brock Brower .373. Tim Gibson .385, Tyler Beauchamp .392 and Ty Barber .424. ey are all members of this seasons .300 Club. Barber stood alone as the sole member of the .400 Club. He was also named the teams Most Valuable Player by his teammates. Strickland said Barber was the player the team wanted at the plate in key situations. ere was no question that junior base-hitter could get the job done. He was also an excellent pitcher. Hes the guy, that when the game was on the line, he was the guy we wanted to hit, Strickland said, noting there is no greater tribute than to be voted the MVP by your teammates. e Co-Oensive Players of the Year were Brock Brower and Tyler Beauchamp. Both were a threat to steal and both could lay down a bunt when it was needed. Together they scored 50 runs. Defensive Player of the Year was Tim Gibson, Bronsons ace on the pitching mound. He placed second to Barber in voting for MVP. We have leaned on him, maybe too much, Strickland said of his go-to guy on the pitching mound. I have a special place in my heart for this guy. For the past two years, Gibson led the team in pitches thrown. He was the strike-out leader both years. Brock Brower was named to the 30-20-20 Club for scoring 33 runs, 28 hits and stealing 23 bases. David Dees was named to the 20-20-20 Club for getting 20 hits, 21 RBI and scoring 20 runs. e team overall was academically talented, but two players stood out. Landon Smith and Ty Barber each won the Scholar Athlete Award. Newcomer of the year was speedster Brandon Quinn. Strickland saw his speed on the football eld and recruited him in a hallway conversation. He could y. Strickland used him as a pinch runner for the slower players. Jared McCoy won the Closer Award. He had key hits last year and this year. Brandon Wachtel received the Long Ball Award for his home run hitting talent. He had power. e Coaches Award went to Jason Ranalli, whom Strickland described as a great kid. He never sulked. He always did what the coaches told him to do. e Journey Award went to seniors Tyler Beauchamp, Brock Brower, Brandon Mercer, Landon Smith and Jake Morrison who played for Strickland all four years at Bronson High School. e Eagles improved to one of the best teams in the region in four short years, a journey neither they nor Strickland will ever forget. Junior Varsity Coach Danny Wiggins said he was pleased with the season. He said the team worked hard to reach that point. e whole team has really come together. We had to yell a little. ey pulled together and got it done. He gave Scott White the Coaches Award, Cole Crane the Most Valuable Player, Gator White Best Defensive Player and Emory Lake Best Oensive Player. Middle School Coach David White said the team had a tough season, winning only two games when the opposing team forfeited the game.

We waited on Tony to pluck himself a salad and we said the blessing. e waitress slid to a stop and ung three straws onto the table. Coke, Tony grunted anticipating her question. Sweet tea, Heath chimed in. With a startled look on my face, I gasp, Did you just call her sweetie? Not so much as a smile erupted from anyone. It was not the rst time Id used that joke. Nevertheless, I was pleased with myself. I always loved to see the look on Heaths face as he tried to think of a way to disown me as his brother. rough the lettuce crunching and dough smacking a few idle comments were cast about in hopes that one of us would hook into something worth talking about. It was always risky business; Heath could jump up at any time and methodically start detailing his ceramic tiling techniques. I was determined not to let that happen, so I frantically searched my mind. en I remembered that during my shower that morning God had revealed to me the meaning of life. BooYah! No grout today little brother! Without further delay, I cranked down on it starting in Genesis. I hardly even noticed the here we go again looks I was getting from my crew, or how the people in the booth next to us were looking for an emergency exit. e fact that my audience was slipping back and forth to the buet during most of it didnt even faze me. Im telling you I was locked in. Where were the news cameras when you need them? irty-ve or forty minutes past, whos counting? I had laid the foundation. e framework was rmly in place. e time had come to reveal the most sought after revelation of all times! I paused ever so briey for eect, and a muchneeded breath, when in a ash, Heath jumped up, looked at his watch and said, But anyway. rew down a tip and headed to the cash register with Tony hot on his heels. WHAT??? Believe it or not, God had indeed revealed great things to me that morning, but I have since learned its not so much what you blab, its what theyll grab. For example, you may sound awful smart giving your riveting explanation on the complexities of the Holy Trinity while saying grace, but you wont be invited back to many dinners. Tony and Heath might bear it, but its doubtful your unbelieving buddies will have the grout to stick it out. My great wisdom and church lingo will carry about as much weight with them as the guy who barks for the yak woman down at the carnival. My advice Be led by the Holy Spirit. If you just have to just blurt it out, go ahead. Lord knows they need to hear it. Sometimes I still cant help myself. JESUS LOVES YOU! YOU KNUCKLE HEADS! But if at all possible, try to keep it simple. We can always speculate on whos the antichrist after they get saved! Ive also noticed through great trial and error people will always receive you a little better if they can tell you actually care about them. It is the demonstrated goodness of God that best erects your platform to speak. So ask God to give you a genuine love for those knuckleheads. e Good News rings loudest when its spoken in more than words. Jesus has such a wonderful way of dealing with us as individuals. I believe thats how we should deal with others, because sadly my latest revelation may only be a But anyway to you. But anywayIf you havent already headed to the cash register on me, my great pizza revelation can be discovered in Colossians 1:15-17. And oh, if I havent told you lately, I love you too, you big knucklehead. Guy Sheeld www.butanyway.org Church CalendarPHILLIP N. KOHLERPhillip N.

5B By Brad Buck, 352/294-3303, firstname.lastname@example.org Sources: Erica Goss, 352/273-4650, email@example.com Gene McAvoy, 863/674-4092, firstname.lastname@example.org A University of Florida scientist has pinpointed Mexico as the origin of the pathogen that caused the 1840s Irish Potato Famine, a nding that may help researchers solve the $6 billion-a-year disease that continues to evolve and torment potato and tomato growers around the world. A disease called late blight killed most of Irelands potatoes, while today it costs Florida tomato farmers millions each year in lost yield, unmarketable crop and control expenses. For more than a century, scientists thought the pathogen that caused late blight originated in Mexico. But a 2007 study contradicted earlier ndings, concluding it came from the South American Andes. UF plant pathology assistant professor Erica Goss wanted to clear up the confusion and after analyzing sequenced genes from four strains of the pathogen, found ancestral relationships among them that point to Mexico as the origin. e pathogen is very good at overcoming our management strategies, said Goss, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty member. To come up with better solutions to late blight, we need to understand the genetic changes that allow it to become more aggressive. By understanding past changes, we can design new strategies that are more likely to be robust to future genetic changes. Goss and eight colleagues analyzed the genes of potato late-blight pathogens from around the world. Potato late blight, which ourishes in cool, damp weather, is caused by the pathogen phytophthora infestans. Scientists sequenced four genes from more than 100 phytophthora infestans samples, plus four closely related species, to tease out the pathogens origin. Knowing the origin provides insight into its genetic diversity and the ways it adapts to dierent environments, Goss said e pathogen also moved from other related species to the potato late in the evolutionary history of potatoes, she said, perhaps one reason potatoes are so susceptible to the disease and why nding a breeding-based solution to the disease has been so dicult. e pathogen costs $6 billion a year globally between direct crop damage and spraying, she said. In Florida, it damages tomatoes far more than potatoes. Florida farmers lose millions each year due to late blight, said Gene McAvoy, Hendry County Extension director, who has monitored late blight in Southwest Florida for years. A late-blight pandemic in 2009 made the pathogen a household term in much of the eastern U.S. It made its way to the Northeast via tomatoes in big-box retailers. After planting the tomatoes, many home gardeners and organic producers lost most, if not all, of their crop, Goss said. Just when we think were on top of it, a new strain shows up, she said. New strains have repeatedly appeared in the U.S. that are more aggressive or resistant to fungicides. is pathogen just keeps coming. Goss wrote the paper, published online by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, with scientists from eight other university and government agencies.

UF/IFAS Helps Create Genome Database to Aid Fruit Growers, Scientists By Brad Buck, 352/294-3303, email@example.com Source: Mercy Olmstead, 352/392-1928, ext. 208, firstname.lastname@example.orgScientists and growers can use a new genome database developed in part by University of Florida researchers to help make fruit trees more diseaseand pest-resistant and enhance crop quality. Researchers who study citrus, rosaceae and vaccinium crops will be the primary users of the portal, said Mercy Olmstead, assistant professor of horticultural sciences at UFs Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, but agricultural producers will also reap the benets. Rosaceae include apples, cherries, peaches, strawberries, pears and ornamental roses. Vaccinium fruits include blueberries and cranberries. Olmstead, Fred Gmitter, a genetics and breeding professor at the Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred and Jim Olmstead, assistant professor of horticultural sciences, both also at UF/IFAS, helped create what they and other scientists are calling the Tree Fruit Genome Database Resources. Dorrie Main, associate professor of bioinformatics at Washington State University, leads the project. e portal, found at www.tfgdr.org, will help explain the genetic database and show how the information can be used to grow better fruit, Mercy Olmstead said. e website provides data about 22 horticultural crops: almond, apple, apricot, blackberry, blueberry, cherry, clementine, cranberry, grapefruit, lemon, lime, mandarin, nectarine, orange, peach, pear, plum, pummelo, raspberry, rose, strawberry and tangerine. e site also features videos and articles that highlight the role genomics, breeding and these databases play in solving industry problems in fruit production. Its important that growers and industry stakeholders understand how these data can be used to solve production issues, improve breeding eorts and nd sources of disease and pest resistance, she said. is website will help to connect the dots and show how scientists are taking genetic data and improving fruit varieties for sustainable production. e website also describes an upcoming project that Mains laboratory is developing the Growers Toolbox an online decision-making tool. is resource will provide weather, soil and environmental information to help growers decide which fruit varieties are most suited to their growing conditions. Researchers at UF/IFAS, Washington State, Clemson, North Carolina State and Cornell universities created the new website and will keep it updated.
