Ellzey has worked for the city for the past 31 years, rst as a clerk for the police department and later as the deputy city clerk, serving as second in command to the city manager. She has twice served as interim city manager and was a late applicant for the number one administrative job in the city. She was the 23rd of 23 applicants to le for the job. Shes been here. We know how she works, said Commissioner Betty Walker, summing up the view that Ellzey was an obvious choice. Commissioners briey discussed the other 22 applicants but only one, Teena M. Trice of Rockwood, Tenn., received the three votes from commissioners to make it to the interview process. Commissioner Chris Jones asked the commission and Mayor Teal Pomeroy if Ellzey could be sent to a back room while they discussed whether to go forward with the process of interviewing other candidates. I think were wasting money to go through the interview process. We got someone here dedicated to the city, Jones said. Jones noted that only a handful of the applicants had any experience as municipal managers. City Attorney Norm Fugate said commissioners could scrap all the other candidates and go forward By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioner Chad Johnson acknowledged Tuesday he made mistakes in his online campaign contributions report for the period of June 1-20, but he has led corrections with the state. e Florida Division of Elections requires accurate reporting of contributions by candidates and mandates corrections to the reports if mistakes are made by the candidate. Johnsons campaign contribution report showed four businesses with his rst name (Chad) listed in front of the business name. Johnson said he would have never intentionally typed his rst name in front of contributors. I know I did not individually type my name in that slot, he said. He believes the software used for reporting contributions online accidentally inserted his rst name in front of the businesses. He said his mistake was in not re-checking the report to make certain it was accurate. To err is human, to really foul things up you need a computer, Johnson said. Johnson said he initially believed the Levy County Journals story was inaccurate when it listed contributions from Chieand businesses with his rst name directly in front of the business name, but after checking the report he realized the story was accurate and the mistakes were made by him.Commissioner Corrects Contribution Report, Blames Computer Error By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 2 Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson grew up in Gainesville and graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelors degree in food and resource economics, but he says his roots are rmly planted in the soil of his adopted home of Levy County. While growing up in Gainesville, he attended the University Church of Christ where his grandfather was a deacon, and he spent summers working for his grandfather Billy Hughes who leased a lot of land in the Orange Hill area near Hawthorne and was one of the last farmers to raise woods cows. Johnson now attends Pine Grove Baptist Church. He remembers spending summers and spring breaks rounding up the woods cows on horseback. He said he and his grandfather would ride the woods looking for cows and it was great fun. He wished his own sons would have that same privilege of one day rounding up woods cows, but he knows that is a bygone era and a Florida legacy.

Gas Plant in Citrus County Looks Promising; Levy Nuclear Plant On Hold By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDuke Energy hosted an open house event at Crystal River on July 10 to answer questions about its planned $1.5 billion natural gas power plant, but ocials were also willing to answer questions about the twin nuclear reactors for southwest Levy County that are currently on the back burner. e combined-cycle natural gas plant in Citrus County will be constructed between U.S. 19 and the existing Crystal River Energy Complex, assuming the project wins approval from the Florida Public Service Commission. e plant would supply 1,640 megawatts of power to help serve Duke Energys 1.7 million customers. continued to page 5AMary Ellzey has tentatively been selected to be the next Chieand city manager.

By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 2 County Commission candidate Rock Meeks was the youngest person elected to a city council or commission when he rst won oce in his home town of Otter Creek. He remembers his surprise when newspapers rst reported his win in the town council election and when NBC talk show host Jay Leno called him to oer congratulations and advice. He asked about our small town. He encouraged me. He said it was a good thing that kids were getting involved with government at a young age, he said. Meeks served for 10 years on the council. His father, Russell Meeks, was mayor at the time. He considered public service to be an honor. He lived for 33 years in Otter Creek and has lived for two years near Chieand. Rock Meeks Started Politics Early in Life; Wants to be Public ServantChad Johnson Rock Meeks Robert Studstill By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 2 County Commission candidate Robert Studstill has farmed all of his life and is retired from the University of Florida from maintenance and mechanics.

3A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County sheris investigators have yet to identify the killer of a 31-year-old Williston man who was shot and killed by an unknown assailant on the night of July 5th. Leo Rives was found lying on the ground at the corner of NE 218th Ave. and NE 35th St. in East Williston. Lt. Scott Tummond said the sheris oce hasnt identied a motive for the killing nor found sucient probable cause to make an arrest. e sheris oce is seeking the publics assistance with the investigation of the murder. e community is going to have the answers we need to arrest and prosecute the guilty party, said Tummond. Tummond said the sheris oce has received a preliminary autopsy report but wont release information about where the victim was shot, how many times he was shot or what type of weapon was used because of the pending investigation. e sheris oce received an anonymous 911 call at about 10:20 p.m. reporting a suspicious vehicle and a possible shooting. Responding deputies found a white Ford Crown Victoria parked on the roadway. Deputies discovered Rives on the ground beside the vehicle. He was dead of a gunshot wound. Evidence recovered at the scene indicated that Rives was most likely shot by someone who had also been riding in the car. An autopsy was set for Monday. Levy County sheris investigators are working with various other agencies including the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Marion County Sheris Oce and the Medical Examiners Oce to identify and arrest the unknown shooter. Anyone with information regarding this crime is encouraged to call the Levy County Sheris Oce at 352/486-5111, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-349-8477. Tummond said it is not unusual for law enforcement to be dispatched during a holiday to reports of gunshots being red, particularly during the July 4th holiday. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA Trenton area man who was originally convicted of hosting a sex and drug party for juveniles 11 years ago was sentenced to three years in state prison on July 9 for violating the conditions of his probation. Rodney Allen Bouchard, 31, violated his sex oender probation by committing domestic battery by strangulation on May, 11, 2014. Circuit Judge William Davis gave him credit for 60 days served in the Levy County Detention Center. An arrest report said the victim in the May 11 case said she stayed the night at the home of her boyfriend (Bouchard). She woke up and wanted to go home but he refused to let her leave. ey began arguing and she packed her clothes. While she was squatted down packing her clothes Bouchard came up behind her and wrapped his right arm around her neck, and grabbed her hair with his left hand. She began to scream and he put his left hand over her mouth. He pulled her backwards causing her to fall back on him and hit a radio speaker on the oor. He held her down for several minutes causing injuries to her neck and back. She left the home on foot and was picked up by a friend. e original charge 11 years ago that landed Bouchard in hot water resulted from Bouchard hosting a sex and drug party at his home on Feb. 2, 2003. Present for the party was a 13-year-old female and two 14-year-old males. An ounce of marijuana was smoked at the party and Bouchard had sex with the girl. e court sentenced Bouchard on Feb. 4, 2004 to 15 years of sex oender probation with credit given for 710 days served in jail. Bouchard violated his probation on May 5, 2005 by having contact with the victim who was still a minor. His probation was revoked and he was resentenced on May 13, 2005 to probation, but he violated his probation when he was arrested again on May 11, 2014 in the strangulation case. He is headed for state prison.minor. Court records said Rivera was visiting his ex-wifes home on June 5, 2014 when they started to argue over his girlfriend. He became angry and said he was going to kill her and take their 8-year-old son. He grabbed his ex-wife by the throat and choked her. She bit his nger to force him to release his grip. He bit the child on the upper arm. Gray Arthur Schaupp, 69, Chieand, was sentenced to two years of probation and given credit for 20 days in jail after pleading no contest to driving with his license permanently revoked and driving with a tag that was expired for more than six months. ere was no description of the arrest by Chieand police in the court records. e police department prepared no report. Giorgio Autumn Shaver Wilt, 33, Chieand, was sentenced to 12 months of probation and 10 days in jail after pleading no contest to driving under the inuence. She was given credit for 7 days served in jail. Her drivers license was suspended for six months. Chieand police responded to a vehicle crash on Old Fanning Springs Road on May 26, 2014. ey found a car had crashed into the perimeter fence of Strickland Park. Wilt was the driver and her 4-year-old daughter was in the back seat.

Sentencings from the Bench continued from page 2A Still No Arrest on the Murder of Williston ManSex Oender Headed to State Prison in Strangulation Case By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieands municipal budget is looking up for the rst time since the Great Recession forced the city to adopt a lean scal diet six years ago, although its not a perfect scenario even now. e city commission agreed Monday to tentatively keep the 6 mill property tax rate for the 2014-15 scal year. e city anticipates generating $750,877 in property tax revenue for the coming budget. e city commission set the tentative budget hearing for Sept. 8. e nal millage rate for next year will be adopted at the hearing. e city can lower the millage on that date or keep it at 6 mills, but it cant be raised. Mayor Teal Pomeroy and Commissioner Chris Jones said they would prefer to reduce the tax rate, but Jones said he doesnt think that will happen. Im like everyone else, Id like to cut it, but I dont think we can, he said. Commissioners learned that their ve-member board will see an increase of $5,056.34 in the legislative budget, with most of the rise in costs attributed to a $3,536.90 rise in commissioner health insurance costs. Overall the city is looking at a 10-12 percent increase in health insurance for the coming year. City ocials will know more next week when the citys health insurance carrier gives the city the nal numbers. Interim City Manager Mary Ellzey is asking commissioners to approve a 2 percent pay raise for city employees. e raise would be the rst in six years. She said the city is losing valuable employees because it cant compete with wages. Projects Coordinator Laurie Copeland said the state retirement system contributions for city employees will increase again. Commissioners havent talked about whether they will hire a deputy city clerk to replace Ellzey if she is moved up to city manager, but the money is already in the budget if the commission decides to ll the clerks position. e eects of the recession may be the most visible in a small number deep inside the budget. e cost of collecting garbage will decrease by $10,200 next year due to the closing of the Family Dollar Store and Rent-A-Center in Chieand Regional Shopping Center. e citys taxable value is actually less than the year before, dropping $116,697 to a citywide value of $125,146,203. But the gure is deceiving. e city actually saw an increase in new taxable value of nearly $1.2 million from new construction, additions and rehabs over the past year. But the state requires the city to deduct new construction from its taxable value numbers in the 2014-15 budget. e city is planning to set aside $50,000 to purchase a used dump truck, but Shane Keene, the citys water superintendent, said city sta will shop around and try to get the best buy. Copeland said the plan is to add $70,212 to the citys reserve funds in next years budget. e city added $84,514 to the reserve for contingency in the current budget. Commissioners also voted to spend at least $6,000 for a used Gator, a four-wheel drive allterrain vehicle to be used by the sewer department. e city is beneting from the fact that several loans are being paid o in the current budget. ose loan payments wont be in next years spending plan. e termination of those loan payments freed cash for the city.Chieand Budget Looks Rosier, But Expenses Keep Rising Johnsons online report listed Chad Beauchamp and Ewards making a $200 contribution. e report should have said Beauchamp and Edwards. His report listed Chad Smith Law rm instead of Smith Law Firm and Chad Smith Asset Management instead of Smith Asset Management giving $1,000 donations for each business. e report also listed Chad Wade Custom Homes instead of Wade Custom Homes giving a $300 donation. He said he was in a hurry to record the contributions that day and didnt take the time to see what the computer had actually recorded. I was just blowing through to get it done, he said. He said he contacted each of the contributors and none of them were upset about mistakes in reporting their contributions. ey were made aware he was correcting the mistakes. Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones said her oce does not check the accuracy of the candidate contribution reports. She said her oce is not permitted by law to correct errors if they see them. We just make sure its complete, but not accurate. But when you think about it, we cant hunt down every contributor, she said. When candidates sign onto the elections website to record contributions, they use their pin number as their signature to sign the campaign contributions form. eir signature says the candidate believes the information is accurate. e pin number is like a personal signature. I can verify we didnt change anything. What was submitted was done by use of his pin, she said. e Journal rst asked Johnson about the inaccuracies in his online campaign report immediately following the county commission meeting on July 8. He said at the time he believed the incorrect information on the report was a mistake, possibly due to computer error. He said Jones was investigating. Jones said she never investigated. She said Johnson has the responsibility for lling out the campaign contributions report accurately. She said there would be nothing for her oce to investigate. Johnson said he doesnt remember saying Jones would investigate. He said he dropped by the elections oce after the July 8 county commission meeting to notify sta in the front oce that there were mistakes in his online contributions report. He said he knew he would have to amend the report, but he was ying out that night on a business trip and wouldnt be able to le the amended report until he got back. Johnson returned from the business trip and mini-vacation with his wife and four children on Monday night. He went to the elections oce Tuesday morning and led an amended report correcting the errors, and then went immediately to the interview with the Journal at the courthouse.Commissioner Corrects Contribution Report, Blames Computer Error continued from page 1A

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Nullication of Oppressive Federal Laws Is Catching On Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateWhenever Democrats are in real trouble politically, the Republicans seem to come up with something new that distracts the publics attention from the Democrats problems. Who says Republicans are not compassionate? With public opinion polls showing President Obamas sinking approval rate, in the wake of his administrations multiple ascoes and scandals -the disgraceful treatment of veterans who need medical care, the Internal Revenue Service coverups, the tens of thousands of children ooding across our open border -Republicans have created two new distractions that may yet draw attention away from the Democrats troubles. From the Republican establishment, Speaker of the House John Boehner has announced plans to sue Barack Obama for exceeding his authority. And from the Tea Party wing of the Republicans, former Governor Sarah Palin has called for impeachment of the president. Does President Obama deserve to be sued or impeached? Yes! Is there a snowballs chance in hell that either the lawsuit or an impeachment will succeed? No! Barack Obamas repeated disregard of the laws that he is supposed to follow, and his blatantly changing these laws passed by Congress, are a threat to the whole Constitutional form of government, on which all our freedoms depend. Once a president -any president -can create his own laws unilaterally, we are on our way to becoming a banana republic, where arbitrary rule from the top replaces representative government by we the people. Why not sue Barack Obama then, or impeach him? For the simplest of all reasons: Neither of these actions is going to do anything to stop Obama, or even discredit him -and both can create a distraction that draws attention away from the Democrats disasters during an election year. Either the lawsuit or an impeachment -or both -can hurt the Republicans, by making it look like they are playing Mickey Mouse politics during an election year. President Obama is already making a joke out of Speaker Boehners threatened lawsuit by saying, So sue me! Courts dont like to get involved in cases where one branch of government is suing another -and the Supreme Court does not have to take any case that it does not want to take. Even a lower court can throw out Boehners lawsuit as a political issue that does not belong in court. en it will be the Republicans who will have egg on their faces. As for impeachment, the House of Representatives can impeach any president they want to. But an impeachment is essentially just an indictment that leaves it up to the Senate to decide whether to vote to remove the president from oce. So long as the Democrats control the Senate, impeachment of Barack Obama is guaranteed to lose. And this too would leave the Republicans with egg on their faces during an election year. e political fate of the Republican Party is not something that those of us who are not Republicans need to worry about. If they want to shoot themselves in the foot again, so be it. But all Americans have to worry -and worry big time -about the fate of this country if Republicans blow their chances of taking control of the Senate. If Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid continues his iron control, President Obama can nominate whatever kinds of federal judges he wants to, knowing that they will be conrmed by the Senate. Since federal judges have lifetime tenure, this would in eect extend the Obama administration long past the point when Barack Obama leaves the White House. All he needs to do is pack the federal courts with judges who share his contempt for the Constitution and his zeal to impose a far-left agenda at all costs. is years elections -especially the Senate elections -can decide the fate of this country for a long time to come. at is why Republicans launching of foredoomed symbolic actions like lawsuits and impeachment is such an irresponsible self-indulgence. When the country is at a historic crossroads is not the time for futile gestures like this, which can create bigger disasters than we already have.omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

McManusEarlier in 2014, the Kansas state legislature enacted a law stating that some federal gun control regulations would not be obeyed in Kansas. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder immediately notied Governor Sam Brownback that this new state law was unconstitutional. He cited Article VI of the U.S. Constitution, specically its Supremacy Clause, to support his stand. As is customary among federal ocials, Holder relied on only a portion of this clause, the part stating that laws of the United States shall be the supreme law of the land binding all the states. But a more complete look at this clause shows that federal laws are legitimate only if made in pursuance thereof of the Constitution. In other words, if a federal law is not in keeping with, or exceeds, the powers granted in the Constitution, it can rightly be declared illegitimate and not obeyed. ough not employing the word, Kansas actually issued a decree of nullication regarding the pertinent gun control regulations issued by the federal government. Is nullication of a federal law permissible? omas Jeerson thought so. In the 1798 Kentucky Resolutions he penned to help the Kentuckians gain statehood, he wrote: at a nullication, by those sovereignties [states] of all unauthorized acts done under the color of that instrument [the Constitution] is a rightful remedy. After he served as president, James Madison oered his view about a states power to nullify a federal law in 1834: Nullication of a law can ... belong rightfully to a single state as one of the parties of the Constitution; the state not ceasing to avow its adherence to the Constitution. ough Attorney General Holder expressed his objection to the Kansas law, he hasnt taken any action. But the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a private organization, has led a lawsuit seeking to overturn what Kansas has done. In keeping with the Holder view, this anti-gun ownership group is relying on only a portion of the Supremacy Clause while ignoring the requirement that a federal law must be in pursuance thereof of the Constitution. e actual Kansas law being challenged calls for prosecution of any law enforcement ocial (federal, state or even local) who seeks to enforce federal regulations over rearms made, sold and owned in Kansas. Attorney General Holder will surely watch this case from the sidelines. But so too will millions of Americans who value the private ownership of weapons, a right protected by the Second Amendment. A related matter may become an issue in this case. It is who shall determine the meaning of constitutional clauses. America has long relied on a belief that the federal judiciary alone has the power to state what any portion of the Constitution actually means. But nowhere in the document itself can any such attitude be found. Leaving such an important matter to the federal judiciary has resulted in judicial mischief. State nullication of unconstitutional federal laws and regulations is based on the recognition that sovereign states created the national government and delegated to that government only those few powers enumerated in the Constitution. It would surely be helpful for the cause of liberty for this intent to be reinforced along with acceptance of a states right to nullify a bad federal law. We can hope that the Brady Campaigns suit against Kansas will lead to a rearmation of state power and a diminution of federal overreach. Like Eric Holder, we shall be watching this very important case. Learn more about nullication by reading omas E Woods Jr.s book Nullication. John F.

His administration labels this ideology as a hallmark of the liberal Democratic Party that supposedly stands for the working folks. But why are working folks working? To get rich! e only problem is the liberal wing of politics is really confused about their own ideology. On July 8 the presumptive 2016 Democratic candidate for the Presidency, Hillary Clinton, was interviewed by the German print and online media Der Spiegel by Marc Hujers and Holger Stark. Der Spiegel went down the road of Hillary and Bills nances and Hillarys now infamous remark to Americas Diane Sawyer that she and Bill were dead broke when they left the White House after Bills presidential period. Der Spiegel used statistics to point out that the average annual income of an American household is $43,810 and asked Hillary if her earning up to $200,000 per hour was good reason for people to be upset. Clinton replied, Well, certainly, I can understand that, but thats never been the crux of the concern in our country, because weve always had people who did better than other people. ats just accepted. Now that remark just smacks of free enterprise to me and the capitalism that goes with it. And that has been a hallmark of Republican conservative policy all along. But there is a big dierence. Conservatives buoy up freedom and liberty to go with the free market. It is up to you if you want to own a company, make a lot of money, and yes even the elephant in the room, spend it how you wish. Or you can get a job and be happy with that. But you do the choosing. Liberals are only liberal with rules and regulations that suit their ideology. ey liberally give out welfare funds to those they choose right out of the pockets of those that work. As Britains Prime Minister Margaret atcher once said, e problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples money [to spend]. Of course, this administration just turns on the printing press to x that. Try on the over 8,000 new rules initiated this year alone by this liberal (with rules) administration. Try starting a company nowadays and see how many hoops you have to jump through and how much you have to pay in licenses and fees. My, my, my, how in the world did this great nation ever get to be so successful in the past when we did not have all these rules. ousands of union coal mine workers and pipe layers are being put out of work so they can please environmental groups. Liberals chose that. Bakeries are forced to make marriage cakes for gay couples, nurses are forced to attend abortions and ministers to perform wedding ceremonies against their deeply held religious beliefs as the liberals do the choosing. is great country was built purposefully for and by liberty and freedom, my friend, not by overreaching rules and regulations. Liberals, like Clinton and Obama and Holder and Lerner, also want to decide who to distribute the wealth to. If you dont t into their ideology, they will develop and order, by pen or phone, a rule that makes sure you are made equal to the rest. Conservatives are conservative with government. e less the better. Let the people grow or not grow, start up or not start up, spend or not spend. It is up to the individual Lawsuits and Impeachmentcontinued to page 5A

Res. 447. Every day in all corners of the world, independent journalists are under attack by repressive governments that dont want the world to know what goes on in their countries, said Rubio. We should never take for granted the press freedom we have in the United States. Its our responsibility to defend press freedom globally and highlight the repressive actions that many independent journalists abroad are themselves forbidden from reporting on. Im proud to have led this eort in the Senate to send a message that the U.S. stands with independent journalists being persecuted around the world. e Senate sent an important message today to those that seek to stie the freedom of the press the United States does not tolerate attacks against journalists and stands united against repressive governments, said Casey. I applaud my colleagues for coming together in support of journalists and freedom of the press worldwide. Journalists the world over put their lives at risk to deliver news and information every day. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 211 journalists were jailed worldwide in 2013, the second worst year on record. Many more are missing or have been exiled from their home countries. Attacks and intimidation like this can stie essential ows of information and limit the scope of our insight into events on the ground. e World Press Freedom Resolution seeks to condemn restrictions on the freedom of the press around the globe and highlight the issue of impunity for perpetrators of attacks on journalists. Using statistics carefully collected by Reporters Without Borders and the Committee to Protect Journalists, the resolution condemns those countries that seek to crush the lawful dissemination of information by attacking, imprisoning, and in some cases, killing journalists. e resolution rearms the United States dedication to protecting press freedom to support democracy, mitigate conict, and promote good governance. It also calls on the President and Secretary of State to improve the means by which the U.S. government identies, publicizes, and responds to threats against freedom of the press, and urges foreign governments to transparently investigate and bring to justice the perpetrators of attacks against journalists. TALLAHASSEE, FL e Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) today announced its endorsement of Governor Rick Scott in the upcoming election for Governor of Florida. e FPCA cited the Governors history of supporting Floridas law enforcement in its announcement, specically the Governors commitment to law enforcement and public safety initiatives. Police Chiefs across the state of Florida are thankful for the support of Governor Scott regarding law enforcement and public safety, said Jupiter Police Chief Frank Kitzerow, President of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. Under Governor Scotts leadership, Florida has the lowest crime rate in 43 years, based on the 2013 Uniform Crime Report. e report indicated 27,380 fewer crimes reported in 2013, a 3.8 percent improvement over the previous year. Floridas crime rate has continued to drop since the Governor took oce in 2011, due in part to his prioritization of law enforcement initiatives. Further evidence of his commitment to public safety is the April 2014 signing of four bills targeting sexual predators, including legislation that will keep the most violent sexual oenders incarcerated for longer periods of time. e Florida Police Chiefs are fortunate to have such a strong advocate for law enforcement in Governor Scott, said Springeld Police Chief Philip orne, Immediate Past President of the FPCA. We look forward to continuing to work with him to protect our state and our citizens. In May, Governor Scott signed the 2014-2015 Its Your Money Tax Cut Budget, providing essential funding for law enforcement training resources. e Governor approved the funding for the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Trust Fund, raising the per ocer funding level to $67 per year, nearly doubling the per ocer amount from the previous year. ese funds restored crucial training monies to improve law enforcement ocer capabilities. e funding for these resources was a critical issue for Floridas police chiefs this year, and we cannot thank Governor Scott enough for his continued support for law enforcement over his term, said Amy Mercer, Executive Director of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. Governor Scott is the clear choice for Floridas next Governor because he has proven he cares about our state and its citizens. e Governor also recently vetoed a bill that would have increased Floridas highway speed limits to 75 miles per hour. e Governor, and the FPCA, were concerned that the higher speed limits could potentially increase the risk of dangerous accidents not only for motorists, but also for the law enforcement ocers charged with patrolling Floridas highways. e FPCA is the fourth largest state police chiefs association in the nation and is composed of more than 750 of the states top law enforcement executives. FPCA serves municipal police departments, airport police, college and university police, private business and security rms, as well as federal, state and county law enforcement agencies. e FPCA has members representing every region of the state. submitted but, it is their choice not the centralized government. And remember, it takes a lot of government unionized workers to distribute your wealth. And those guys dont want to lose their jobs so they just keep on keeping on while getting bonuses to follow the government mandates. And when they have problems with their enforcement tactics they just hand over their computers to the Secret Eraser Company and all is well again. e problem lies in the fact that deep inside us all, if we have not been brainwashed by the new breed of educators, we just know that we are supposed to go it alone. e Lord created individuals, not groups. And for those who dont like Creationism, even evolution happens one entity at a time. ose individuals then decide on their own if they want to create their own group, a family with their name, and move on. And those individuals decide if they want to contribute their earnings to help others. Most do, especially in America, but there are some that dont. Our founding fathers mentioned that without a belief in God and morality our type of government would not stand. But taking God out of society and education is drowning the very thing that helped this country to its greatness. So the individuals and their families are in charge of choosing a moral belief system to ensure continuance of contributions to help others while at the same time caring for family members or workers. If they dont, they will be found out eventually and the power of the buying electorate will walk away from them. And the issue settles itself. e issue here is the freedom to choose. Could it be that a preponderance of free enterprise companies had lost that moral high road and the stories of the Enron types have jaded our philanthropic history? We need to look in the mirror honestly and see what is looking back and if it not what you want to see, change it. But it could also be a preponderance of lies. Most Americans right now are so sick of lies. Bold faced lies. I do believe we are just now moving past the shock of this to making decisions on what to do about the lies. e Bible says Satan is the father of lies. And we dont really want that bad boy around. So instead of thinking in terms of political parties which have changed for the worst over these last years when we vote this fall, lets look at the people. Do some homework and pick morally sound, scally conservative and constitutionally-grounded people who are willing to represent the voters and not the spin artists who say one thing and do another. Both parties have them. e real truth is that our economy will come back strong based on old conservative principles honesty, hard work, less encumbrances on the work ethic and more encumbrances on the spending principle. Taxing us on our income trends people to not working for an income. Taxing us on our spending trends us to spend less. Everyone citizens, aliens, visitors, crooks can decide on their own to spend and will carry the burden of running the government. But in order to spend, they must rst work. And that work is tax free until the individual decides on their own to spend. Simple and moral and Fair.

Duke Energy will purchase natural gas from the proposed Sabal Trail natural gas line. e plan is to connect the 24inch line that will serve the plant to the main 36-inch natural gas transmission line at State Road 200 in the area of the Dunnellon Airport. e 24-inch line will follow existing power transmission lines to the Crystal River site. Duke Energy selected the Citrus County site due to availability of water, fuel supply, access to transmission systems and the fact that the site is close to an existing railroad and the infrastructure associated with the Crystal River Energy Complex. Heather Dannenhower, spokesperson for Duke Energy, said the company anticipates hiring 600 to 700 workers to construct the gas plant beginning in 2016, but only 40 to 75 people will be needed to operate the power plant. She said the 5,000-acre site for the two nuclear reactors in southwest Levy County will remain vacant until the company decides whether to build the plant. Dannenhower said the combined operating license (COL) should be approved by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission by sometime next year, but that doesnt mean construction will begin anytime soon. We continue to regard the Levy site as a viable option for the Levy plant, she said. She said factors such as cost, demand for electricity, the need for the plant and the future of a cost recovery program in Florida will bear on whether the plant is ever constructed. Floridas cost recovery program allows utilities to charge customers for the future cost of building a nuclear power plant. e law has been challenged. e sheer cost of building such a plant might be prohibitive if the company cant recover costs in advance of construction. Nuclear energy has low fuel costs compared to other forms of energy, but construction costs are high. e estimated cost of building the two nuclear reactors in southwest Levy County and the 180 miles of associated transmission line would be in the range of $24 billion. e majority of that expense would be in Levy County. One Duke Energy ocial said the company doesnt foresee the need for the Levy County nuclear power plant until the mid-2020s time frame. e company will watch demand for electricity and growth patterns in the region, and other factors as it evaluates whether construction of the twin reactors can be done. e cost recovery system that is being challenged before the Florida Public Service Commission could be big factor in determining whether the plant is ever built.Gas Plant in Citrus County Looks Promising; Levy Nuclear Plant On Hold continued from page 1A

Like last year, about 800 people are expected to attend the conference, Aug. 1-2, at Osceola Heritage Park, 1875 Silver Spur Lane in Kissimmee, said Jose Perez, small farms specialty crop statewide program coordinator and the events publicity chairman. Now in its sixth year, the conference is presented by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and Florida A&M University. Typically, those who attend include small family, transitional, beginning and experienced farmers; alliedindustry representatives; educators; researchers; policy makers; small farm commodity associations; foundations and others dedicated to strengthening Floridas small farm community. Ed Skvarch, commercial horticulture extension agent in St. Lucie County, said those pondering farming can learn much of its business side at the conference. If youre starting a small farm, I believe it is crucial to have passion, the technical knowledge on how to grow vegetables or raise livestock and a working plan on how to grow the business, Skvarch said. Most beginning farmers I work with have the passion and possess some knowledge of growing vegetables; however, what they lack is a plan on how to grow their business. All three are important. In addition to teaching participants how to start a farm, the conference raises awareness about Floridas small farms industry, Perez said. Participants must register to attend the conference. A reduced fee is available to those who register by July 14. is year, organizers are hosting three tours: urban farming (full), farm-to-chef (full) and livestock, Perez said. e urban farming and farm-to-chef tours are already full, but, the livestock tour remains open, he said. e conference features vendor exhibits, a signature luncheon featuring local food and about 20 breakout sessions. New sessions this year include: Goat, poultry, beef and dairy production management and regulations. Management, trends and opportunities in hydroponic production. Transitioning to organic production and fertility management for organic farms. Weed identication and management, and soil management. Training for farmers market managers and online farmers markets. Practical sessions on identifying diseases and pests. An Extension Learning Zone, where farmers will work with urban and hydroponic production systems.

8A rfn rfntbbb tnbnr fnnrnt b rf ntbntf tf n Quincey Johnson, who comes from a Chieand farm family. Johnson is a professional auctioneer and holds a real estate brokers license. He operates as a brokers associate with United Country Smith & Associates. Johnson broke into county politics in 2009 when then Gov. Charlie Christ appointed him to serve as the District 1 commissioner. He later switched to District 2 and defeated the incumbent board member, Nancy Bell. He is up for re-election for the rst time. Reecting back on the past 5 years, Johnson said he is most proud of how the county commission managed the government during very challenging economic times. During the economic boom years in 2006, 2007 and 2008 before he took oce, he said revenue levels were increasing as property values rose, but when he took oce in the recession, property values were dropping along with county revenues, but people still needed services. We cut expenses. We reduced the size of government. We reallocated resources and weve been frugal with the tax dollars, Johnson said. He said there are opportunities on the horizon and the county is aware of businesses that have expressed an interest in Levy County. He said he is not at liberty to disclose information about the prospects. ats why I want to continue as a commissioner, he said. He said bringing new businesses to the county is a slow process. Nothing happens fast in government, he said. Johnson said he and his wife Angela are community minded people. She serves as the director of the Levy County Schools Foundation and was recently elected vice president of the National Auctioneers Association Auxiliary. Johnson himself is past president of the Florida Association of Auctioneers, past president of the Levy County Farm Bureau for three years and serves as a vice president member of the board of the Dixie, Gilchrist Levy Multi Listing Service. Were community focused. We spend a lot of time supporting youth activities, he said. Should Chieand be licensed for an ALS Non-Transport Truck? On the subject of the proposed Advanced Life Support nontransport truck Chieand is requesting, Johnson said he doesnt want to do anything that might jeopardize the countys special assessment that supports the countys Emergency Medical Services department. Johnson said if the county can provide an additional Advanced Life Support non-transport truck for Chieand at no cost to the county and without jeopardizing the countys special assessment, Im okay with it. e entire EMS department is supported by the special assessment. e county plans to consult with its attorneys in Tallahassee who wrote the assessment to determine if changes are needed to accommodate Chieands request. e scope of the work for those attorneys would probably reach beyond their current contract with the county and would result in additional expenses. Johnson believes the city and the county should share the additional expenses for legal counsel to review the special assessment. City Attorney Norm Fugate takes the position that EMS is a county agency funded entirely by a county assessment and the county should shoulder the cost of having its Tallahassee attorneys review the assessment. But Johnson said the city and the county are contributing to the cost, so both parties should contribute to the cost of the study. Its not going to be a healthy partnership when one party is saying the other party should bear all the expenses, Johnson said. He said the city and county should bear an equal share of the cost for reviewing the assessment. Johnson doesnt agree that the county should bear a higher share of the cost. Even though the county funds EMS entirely from the assessment, he was asked why the county couldnt share some of the $2,548,000 in yearly revenue from the 1 cent sales tax the county imposes to help pay the expenses of the study. e small county discretionary sales tax is imposed on every retail purchase made in Levy County. It is the seventh cent of the seven-cent sales tax. Every resident of the county pays the tax when they make a purchase. e county uses $586,247 of the 1 cent sales tax annually to oset revenues that are committed to paying a bond issue, but the remaining money is available for general expenditures. Johnson said the argument could also be made that the city should pay for everything since the city is the governmental entity that is triggering the need for a review of the special assessment. He said some of his fellow commissioners may feel the city should bear the entire cost. I guess that will be open for debate later, he said. Johnson was asked if saving lives should gure into the debate about the ALS truck for Chieand. e city says it can save lives with an ALS non-transport truck by giving its paramedics the ability to treat critically ill patients or critically injured patients with ALS drugs and equipment when they arrive at the scene before the county ambulance. Chieand paramedics currently cant use ALS drugs or equipment because the city re rescue is licensed only for Basic Life Support (BLS). e county commission would have to grant a license to the city to operate an ALS truck. Johnson responded that when it comes to saving lives, the county has spent considerable sums of money to save lives. But he said the county could spend 100 percent of the money it has in its coers and it wont change the fact that when the Good Lord calls you home, you will be taken. He said it is far from the truth that the county has placed money ahead of saving lives. He added that EMS is working on developing better services every day and it works very hard each day to save lives. Johnson was reminded of statements made by Commission Chairman Ryan Bell and County Coordinator Freddie Moody that if Chieand gets an ALS non-transport truck, then every city in the county should get one. Johnson said that may not be practical because not every city can aord to sta an ALS truck with a paramedic. ats why we look at ALS as a county issue, he said. Johnson said he in no way is trying to stall the decision on whether Chieand gets an ALS truck until after the election. He said he realizes other counties are allowing ALS trucks to be used by cities. But he said there are dierent nancial structures in the various counties. I could care less about the election, he said. He said his main concern is to avoid going down the road and approving an ALS truck for Chieand and later getting sidetracked by some issue the county and city didnt foresee. He said he would rather take a more methodical approach to studying the issue and reviewing all available options. Johnson was asked about the conicts that have occurred in the past between Chieand and the county. He said there is baggage out there, but he said the county commission is willing to work with the city. But there is a history you have to get past, he said.Johnson Says He Is Community Minded; Still Investigating ALS Truck Proposal for Chieand continued from page 1A Rock Meeks Started Politics Early in Life; Wants to be Public Servant continued from page 1AIve always had an interest in politics. My Dad served for many years. I used to go as a kid with my Dad to council meetings, Meeks said. Meeks said he is related to County Commissioner John Meeks, who is a third or fourth cousin. He describes him as a distant cousin. Meeks, who is 35, said when he was younger there wasnt much reason to leave Otter Creek. He went with his family once a week to pick up groceries in Chieand, but that was about the extent of the familys travels. Today he is the father of ve and works for the Levy County Department of Parks and Recreation. Otter Creek is a small town. It has no police department of its own. Its one of those towns you might miss if you didnt see the reduction in speed sign and the blinking light at U.S. 19 and State Road 24. But Meeks said its a beautiful little town with wonderful people. His love of politics and Levy County prompted him to run for public oce. Levy County is a great place to live. I would like to be part of it as far as government goes. I want to be a servant to Levy County, he said. Meeks said people who run for public oce often say they want to bring big industry. He is not opposed to the concept, but he says it has to be the right t for the county. It would be nice to generate jobs for the working class people coming up now, so they had something, he said. I got a string of taxpayers coming along behind me. Meeks is an avid hunter and sherman. His wife likes to hunt and sh and they bring their children along with them into the woods. Meeks is a member of the Baptist faith. For many years he attended Otter Creek Baptist Church, but later Countryside Baptist, and now First Baptist Church in Chieand. When he attended Countryside School in Gainesville, he rode with Pastor Billy Keith to the church and school in Gainesville. He refuses to criticize incumbent County Commissioner Chad Johnson, one of his opponents. If I have to do that to get there, I dont need to be there, he said. I dont agree with that. He said he has had a lot of encouragement to run for public oce. He said there are a lot of people disgruntled about politics across the board, and that has an eect on small politics. Meeks favors giving Chieand an Advanced Life Support non-transport unit, if it will save lives. I think it would be great for Chieand to have, he said. I know they are haggling about the funds. Its great if it doesnt break the county. I think it will be done. Everyone needs to put their heads together and set aside their dierences. As for the Levy County Department of Public Safety, Meeks said he knows the department has become really big. He said he knows there has been a lot of talk about the department but he hasnt gotten deep enough into the issue to comment on it. ere are a lot of concerns, most denitely, he said. But Meeks said he wants to take oce with a clean slate and start to understand the issues more deeply and look at the entire picture in county government. He said he inquired about the countys 1 cent sales tax, and he wants to know more about how the money is spent. Nobody ever sees it and no one talks about it, he said.Robert Studstill Says He Will Bring Honesty and Integrity to County Commission continued from page 1AJosh works for UF recreation and sports in the maintenance division and David works for IFAS at UF. ey were taught their fathers work ethic and values. I believe in keeping strong family values, he said. Studstill has worked many trades in his life. He has grown vegetables and watermelons. He was a subcontractor for cabinet installation. He worked at UF for 18 years and retired in December. He said he worked at UF during the day and grew watermelons when he got home. He was a watermelon farmer from 1983-98. Studstill was also a building inspector for Levy County government in 1978. He was raised in Gulf Hammock as a child, but when his father inherited the family farm in Gilchrist County, they moved to Gilchrist and he lived there for four or ve years until he graduated from Trenton High School. But Levy County has always been home. He has remained a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church for many years. Studstill refuses to criticize incumbent County Commissioner Chad Johnson. He said he was brought up to believe in the Golden Rule. He said he was encouraged by many people to run for the District 2 county commission seat. People were not happy with the way things are going, plus I had the ability to do it, and I can serve 100 percent full-time, he said. Studstill said he would like to see clean businesses brought into Levy County to provide jobs to young people so they can have work. He said a high percentage of people work in local government in Levy County or drive across the county line to work. eres nothing here. Id like to bring something in, and then give tax breaks, he said Studstill said he would like to pull in a lot of grants to repair bridges and guard rails, and he wants to resurface the badly deteriorating paved road to Shell Mound. e road was built by the late Luther White in the early 1950s through swamps. e 3-mile long road leads to a rst rate county campground, he said. It hasnt been resurfaced since it was built. I wouldnt want to pull a boat and trailer down it, he said. Studstill said he wont accept contributions from road builders if he is elected to the county commission. I think it would be too questionable to do something like that, he said. He personally would like the county commission to obtain three bids for any truck or piece of equipment it purchases. My main concern is to save the working peoples tax dollars, he said. He noted that many people are having problems paying property taxes with the high cost of living. I want to bring honesty and integrity to the board, he added. He promised to carry a public cell phone with him if elected to the county commission. He wants residents to have the ability to call him when they have questions or issues they want him to address as a commissioner. Studstill said he believes the City of Chieand should be allowed to operate an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. Why shouldnt they have it? I think they should have it, as populated as Chieand is, he said. He said the city may be able to use the ALS truck to help patients in Fanning Springs or Cedar Key. While he no longer farms as a profession, Studstill keeps about 10 head of cattle on his farm. Its part of his life. He will be on the Nov. 4 ballot as a candidate with no aliation with a party. It truly is a blessing to live in America and in Levy County with the freedom to vote, he said in a written release. Please do me the favor of going out on Election Day to make that vote. with contract negotiations with Ellzey. He said the commission has full control of the process and has the legal right to terminate the process. Commissioners agreed to Jones suggestion to write a letter to the unsuccessful applicants telling them that the position had been led and to thank them for applying. But it was clear that commissioners were not enthused about most of the candidates, many of whom had no managerial experience in city government, much less experience in Florida government. Teena M. Trice, city manager of Oliver Springs, Tenn. for the past year-and-a-half, came closest to lling the bill. Before that, she had been an independent contractor for municipal nance matters for Rockwood, Tenn. for seven months in 2012. Ashley Bryant of Gainesville, of Tower Hill Insurance, a Florida commercial underwriter, received a vote from Mayor Teal Pomeroy. Amanda Nichole Rowland, of Albertville, Ala., a courts clerk who works part-time as a parts manager in a private business, received no votes. Robert Christman, a facilities manager from Fort Myers, received no votes, as did Eddie L. Edwards, a police investigator for major crimes with the Detroit Police Department. Mary Simmons, a family counselor from Chieand, also received no votes. ere were many others with varying business and government backgrounds from Texas to Tennessee. More than 50 applicants applied for the job after former Chieand City Manager Grady Hartzog retired. is time, despite a slow economy, only 23 applied and most lacked solid credentials to be a city manager. ere had been some concern that the constant turnover of city managers in Chieand might impact who might apply. Whether that fact reduced the number and quality of applicants will never been known. Starting in 2003, City Manager Ed Smith lasted two years; City Manager Rod Russ lasted six months; Hartzog lasted six years; Kevin Gay lasted a year. Ellzey, who has the most city managerial experience of any of the 23 applicants, and all of it in Chieand, will likely take the job when they nalize her contract.Chieand Commissioners Settle Quickly on Mary Ellzey as Next City Manager continued from page 1A

Jeremy Pittman came to LCDPS in October of 2012 as a 19-year-old with no background working in public safety. He had passed by the Fire Station in his rural community in Levy County several times thinking about volunteering in an eort to fulll his desire of giving back to his community. Pat Hathcox, a volunteer with the County, knew Jeremy through the Boy Scouts and provided him with the information to become a member of LCDPS. After stopping by the station a few times and talking with the crews he decided to submit an application. Jeremy was hired as a Support Responder, enabling him to give back to his community.

My little brother Heath has, and he loves to tell that story on me. However, over the last 25 years hes had a tendency to embellish it somewhat. So out of the kindness of my heart I thought it best I tell you the exact truth on the matter. A pre-dawn steam was rising gently o the murky waters of Lake Whittenton that sticky hot delta morning. My fathers rebuilt Mercury sputtered to life and we pushed along at a fair clip until we sat her down amongst the stump elds, sending our wake rolling up against the shore. e boat wobbled wildly as Dad stepped across the coolers to his perch up front. It was at that precise moment Heath made his crucial mistake. He hesitated. I alertly dove for the only other seat, thus resigning him to a day sitting on the cooler; and worse, in the middle. After our standard 20 minute rod de-wadding period we settled in to the routine, which consisted of Dad hurriedly shing each stump and then paddling over to it to poke one of our lures loose. Our errant throws kept him on edge and after a while his reprimands were really starting to annoy me, so I stood up and reared back to make a long angry cast to show my disapproval, when all of the sudden, my follow through came to a grinding halt. Crack! My rod broke plum in two. What in the world? I hued. I was just about to ing it again when I heard Heaths low moan coming from behind me. I turned in time to see dad leaping back over the coolers with the boat paddle in a cocked position. He raised a knot on my noggin before I even had time to laugh at poor ole Heath, who was sitting there with my big bass lure dangling from his eye. I endured the tongue lashing of all times during the next few minutes. Dad was certainly in a foul mood as he worked a pair of pliers feverously to de-lure Heaths face. Mostly he was just upset we were wasting valuable shing time. I sat fuming with the injustice of it all, my lip poked out like a moon bounce. at wasnt any cause to whomp a fellow, I grumbled. For the next twenty minutes I put my rod down in protest and commenced the most powerful pout ever portrayed. It was the least I could do on behalf of innocent kids everywhere whod suered under such tyrannical rule. e treble hooks had only grabbed him by the brow. ere was hardly any blood! To make matters worse, Heath had come out of shock and was shooting me devious little grins, pleased with the trouble hed gotten me into. en the most perfect thing happened. After all his fussing, Mister Perfect up front got his lure hung up in a low hanging branch. In his anger, dad reared back to snatch it loose when the limb snapped. It sent that big ole deep diver whistling back like a rocket. It came to a dull thud in the boat. Guess where? Yep, right on Heaths good eye! Heath likes to tell how he saw it in slow motion 3d. I grabbed for the paddle. Whats the morale of this story? Wow. You choose. Its like a parable for the whole Sermon on the Mount! Should I start with the obvious, like how we are commanded to be shers of men? Or should I key in on the whole eye for an eye thing, and commend Heath for turning the other cheek? I could always blast Dad for not pulling the limb out of his own eye before whomping me because of the speck in my brothers. Surely I could mention the Bible says its a rod, not a boat paddle that drives foolishness out of the heart of a child; but then Id have to play the fool. Looking back I guess we were all just playing the fool. Clearly there are better ways to handle lifes little calamities. (Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly. Proverbs 16:22 KJV) I dont know about you, but Ive had my ll of folly. Id be happy if I never learned another thing the hard way. erefore, Im keeping my nose in the instruction manual for life from now on. Its called the Bible. What about you? But anywayrough Gods great mercy Heath still has both of his eyes, although he now wears a football helmet when we sh. I always shy away from paddles, insisting that trolling motors work much better. Dad? Well, he threatened to whomp me with the trolling motor last trip. e rest is all in the eye of the beholder.-Guy Sheeld

Just Another Cowboy WreckOne day while working on McCalls Ranch at Fort Christmas, Florida, we had penned a bunch of cows that had been on the St. Johns River marsh and they were bad. ese cows would get in your back pocket in a New York second. I was riding a horse that had been hooked by a cow several years before. My job was to run the cows into a small pen behind the chute. One ole cow came out of the bunch mad and a lookin for trouble. She made a run at my horse who had been hooked in a back leg and watched for bad cows. When the ole cow made a dash at the horse he jumped sideways to get out of the cows way. ere was a wooden gate in the way and when the horse hit the gate with his side my leg was caught between the horse and the gate. I thought that gate latch would never break. I got a wrecked knee and the horse and cow didnt get hurt at all! Moral of the Story: Cowboys get up and keep on riding and limpin along.

Bronson Community Group & Church of God Join to Make Charity Basketball Tourney Happen By Terry Witt Senior Staff Writere old Bronson High School gymnasium, a building lled with memories of a bygone era came back to life for the rst time in years Saturday thanks to a fundraising basketball tournament sponsored by a local community group and the Bronson Church of God. e tournament brought together teams from the tri-county area with the Blue Devils of Bronson one of two local teams. e purpose of the competition was to raise funds for the Bronson Community Access Center, a group that works to mentor and tutor local children and give them constructive activities after school. Natalie omas, secretary of the access center, said many of the Bronson athletes playing Saturday were alumni who played on former Bronson High School basketball teams in the old gym and wanted to come back to enjoy a day of competition in the gym that held so many memories. I played high school basketball here and I was a cheerleader and I was on the rst Bronson High School volleyball team that played in this gym, omas said. It holds a lot of memories. e access center is urging the Bronson Town Council to move forward with plans to build a new community center and gymnasium at the James H. Cobb Park. omas said the center has plans to provide afterschool activities for children and the elderly. She said the access center is grateful for the Church of Gods decision to charge only a modest fee for use of the old gymnasium. She said the center had been leasing the new Bronson Middle High School gym, but the school district raised the fees so high that it costs as much to rent the new gym for one hour as it did for an entire day at the old gym. In the beginning days of the access center, she said the district gave the center free use of the new gym. But she said Superintendent Bob Hastings said the schools need money to operate too. Pastor Chris Tucker of the Church of God said the church has a ve-year lease on the gymnasium. He said it took a considerable amount of elbow grease, varnish and paint to clean up the old gym to make it useable. e oor had to be re-varnished before it could be used. Tucker said the Church of God is growing and the gymnasium and the locker-room area behind it oer additional space for youth activities. e youth group, Chainless Ministries, meets Wednesday night in the former locker-room area. He said the primary goal is to use the gym for community events. He said the church is part of the community and the gym is part of the churchs ministry. Were all about ministering to the community, he said. Tucker said the church heard about the gym being available for lease. e Levy County School District was debating what to do with the gym. ere was an oer to lease it for storage, but the district didnt want to lease it out for that purpose. ats when the church stepped in. It was denitely a big undertaking for our little church, he said.Thomas Howard breaks free for a fast break layup for the Bronson Blue Devils. Photo by Terry Witt.
